A free freedom of speech can make one win in an election or not win at all. When Barack Obama was giving his campaign speech, he told Americans, he will fight terrorism, and he will capture Osama bin Laden, dead or alive. He won with over sixty million votes, and over three- hundred college electoral votes. He, Obama knew what problems American population is facing.
President-elect Donald Trump, had the same thought, as Obama, though two have many differences. He told voters in a difference version, that Obama has already allowed terrorists to enter American in the name of asylum seekers! And immigrants, So, Americans are not safe, and these others from Mexico, illegal immigrant have come to take American jobs and so, he Donald Trump wants to win to bring jobs back to Americans and flush out terrorists from United State!
He knew minority votes is insignificant, his target was, a majority of white Americans who are affected by threats of terrorism and loss of jobs. This is how the slogan “to make American great again” became a magical charm to win, just like Barack Obama with “Yes we can”. Yes, we can! do what? Capture Osama dead or alive, and Americans live in peace.
In an election campaign, you have to prove that, others, Indeed, done mistakes. Donald Trump had to prove to an electorate that they did a mistake to elect Obama to the oval office. He had shown an example in his campaign, the land Minnesota, belongs to white Americans who are the majority. What has the government done, to the land that belongs to white American? It has a located it to asylum seekers. What will happen if he Donald Trump wins? He will make America great Again.
He did not give details on how to make American great again because the details might spoil. His was to show voters that, they did a mistake to put this government in power. Voters sometimes are like girls, they love when you lie to win their hearts. Girls, when a boy comes to meet them in a borrowed shirt or shoes, they understand the boy is serious to extend of even borrowing, to please them, and those others who boast of telling the truth about themselves are not serious. Girls love it even more when they learn that you telling a lie to draw their attention
Approaching voters to ask them to vote for you sometimes, you need to do a bit word hooliganism for voters to understand what you are better, and be identified with them. For example, if you go to a place or states where the word fuck is mentioned after every any other word or sentences, please just speak like them, you win the votes. Did Hilary real try that? No, I was in election spiritually. Yes! Donald Trump did.
When you are planning to go for a campaign rally in a certain place, just hours before that, you receive news that there was gun shooting where you are supposed to have you rally, and you immediately your cancel that rally, and the whole country is watching your moves, what does that tells the electorate? That you are a weak president? If I was in the shoes of Hilary Clinton, I could organize a full battalion of Marine Commandos and a fleet of media, in that particular County to show the world I am stronger and tougher, I am sure she could have won.
My suggestion to next democrat to challenge the election of Donald Trump for his second term is to have something to tell Americans, something touching their lives, like terrorism, jobs or even the land issues. He or she will win magically just like elect President Donald Trump.
One can even pretend that all Muslims in the United States are terrorist and if she or he win I will deport them to Asian, Middle East, and African, while at the back of his mind, he knows it is impossible just like Donald Trump, but you would have already touched the hearts and feeling of Majority of white American, while in your campaign teams you have a few Muslims who have win you minority Muslims votes. Call it winning feelings from all directions, Call it confusing voters, but that how real games politics is!
American love peace and hate destruction of their properties and lives capitalized on that and you will win. To them what is important is their safety, you will be voted in, even if you are carrying loads of scandals on your head. Sometimes let “fucking” word come out of your clean mouth, of course, a professional lawyer, and human rights activist like Hilary Clinton, won’t let that happen, better lose in an election but live with her professional ethics and values.
Hilary lost votes, not because of emails and private servers. Being a lawyer, a human right activist, she was a more qualified presidential candidate, but some who are not professional lawyers like her will ask who is a lawyer, a human right activist, and criminal justice advocates? The answer from people who not “professional”, will say these are the people who allow immigrants to take our jobs, our land and allow terrorist to enter our country! Oh! Please don’t make Jesus, I am just thinking.
We winning an election in Kenya, if everybody else is giving money, you have to try something unique, like helping a mob to stone “a small thief” to death, in front of media cameras , you will win because you are one us. I say, small thief because big, bigger, biggest, huge and gigantic thieves live life at large. These bigger thieves speak a lot English, entertaining the public, and cat-walking…, this is not my small English; it is big English for His Excellency, Deputy President William Ruto. I will add that, they dance in and out of court till the case dies an artificial death, cases for these bigger thieves I mean.
In Kenya it is opposite. There is more of hate speech than freedom of speech. There is more of ditching out money to voters than voters donating for the campaign of their candidate of choice like in the United States. Try in Kenya to contest for an elective post, and you never been mentioned in any scandal, you lose, because you don’t know anything if we help you win, how will we benefit if you don’t how to loot?
You are supposed to know how loot, so that if we help you win, you, in turn, help us opening a window for us to loot! Or else we need cash money now. If a political does give we back -bite him or her. we will not vote for this one . Huyu ni Mkono Gamu!
You see, how we normally commercialize election in Kenya. This is my thinking. I have failed to know why Kenyans elect back corrupt leaders.
An American election is over. Till the end of four years term. Kenyan’s election will happen while Donald Trump is in office as a president of the most democratic country in the world. The president-elect is tired of getting news of looted money in government offices, and especially project funded by Americans taxpayers’ money. I have a feeling Trump can Bomb Kenya anytime from 20th January 2017. Trump might want Kenya to produce thieves of the Money the send to fund projects in Kenya.
My appeal to a president-elect just to understand Kenya are thieves and know a better way of dealing with thieves, not bombing. These are not my words.
“We are thieves, even while here in Israel, we are looking for something to steal”. said President Uhuru, while he addressed Israel officials in Tel Aviv, in a televised speech to said President Uhuru, addressing Israel officials in Tel Aviv, in a televised speech to a whole world! And that is Kenya swallow a razor blade if you wish!
So in Kenya, we vote clean leaders out because they are not part of us. Oh! My God this my thinking you can sue me this if you wish. Just like Hilary Clinton, a lawyer, a human rights activist, a woman with decorum and dignity, long government serving citizen, could not win an election in a more Democratic united States of America, because she advocates the rights minority, advocate criminal justice and a peace loving mother.
Come August 2017, election, though I am not sure, because there is an underground movement among law -makers, that election be held in December 2017 and others say March 2018, is an end of their five years term. Yes, we elected them and must pay them and so, their payments made in full to the last microsecond and the last cent.
We make laws anytime we want, and we can change laws and anytime we want. We do anything that will help us steal from the public. Oh! Just before I forget, Kenya might go for a referendum to change election dates, and election laws and legislators can claim a pay up to March 2018. We elected these guys for a five-year term, and maybe will opposition save taxpayers? I don’t know.
Next election can go up to December 2017 if electronic voting machines are to be procured at least eight months before an election date. Or else we do manual way, we rig, and we fight again like 2007-2008. Now my questions, President-elect Donald Trump, Understands very well that we steal even in elections, will he help in any way?
I am patiently waiting to hear congratulations messages from African to Trump after he emerged the winner in the toughest race ever contested in the most democratic nation in the world.
The importance of this new facility was marked on Monday, 23th of October, 2016, in a launch ceremony for the new Kenya Power substation at EADC. In attendance to the launch were Hon. William Kabogo, Kiambu County Governor, the CEO of Kenya Power, Dr Ben Chumo, the CEO of Liquid Telecom Kenya, Mr Ben Roberts, and EADC CEO Mr Dan Kwach. EADC has gone greener in global competitive advantage, many thanks to Kenya Power’s energy mix.
The $5 million Kenya Power substation, will Kenya moving to moves to renewable energy that has emerged as a competitive advantage for energy-intensive businesses. East Africa Data Centre is a facility set up to provide an environment to ensure the continuous running of communication equipment and application systems. The Data Centre is designed to ensure it provides the highest levels of availability to customers.
EADC hosts critical data for clients. These include cloud services, and data back-up, on servers for heavy energy users. Combining data into a single premise is far more energy efficient compare to multiple individual on-site data servers. It is worth noting that data centers are still heavy energy users.
EADC is a carrier-neutral data Centre in Nairobi. It is the largest and most sophisticated in East Africa, offering secure and reliable space for dedicated hosting, collocation, interconnect services, network-based services, applications, disaster recovery, and cloud services. A Tier Three data Centre is built to international standards and it is the only purpose is to build data Centre in East Africa. EADC is an independent company within The Liquid Telecom Group with a dedicated management team system.
It is reported that Kenya’s Data centers Kenya last year consumed 7,800,000 MwH of electricity. 4,000,000 MwH was consumed by large and medium commercial and industrial users. EADC uses just one out tens of thousands of industrial electricity consumption. This is about 410 MwH
Globally, data centers are now consuming some 3 per cent of the world’s total electricity supply. Their power consumption is growing at about 4 per cent a year. This is driven by some of the world’s largest data Centre users, like Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Apple, as well as IBM and Microsoft.
This has put pressure on for policy makers, with Google’s electricity consumption, alone, almost twice each year, and now running at around 3.2 Gw. In the US, analysts now estimate that the 91bn KwH and $9bn of electricity that data centres were consuming in 2013, will have become 139bn KwH and $13.7bn of electricity by 2020. These prompt a need for an extra 17 power plants.
“As the growth and power hungry nature of data centers has moved into the public eye, there has been an increasing focus on data centers sourcing energy from renewable energy sources, so that they are not contributing to global warming,” said EADC CEO Dan Kwach.
He added that, it has seen the world’s data centers required, increasingly, to demonstrate their green credentials to win international clients.
Though there are more opportunities in data across the world, Marty Ward and Sean Derrington, article on IT today, wrote that, Data center managers are caught between a rock and a hard place. This is so because they are expected to do more than ever, including protecting rapidly expanding volumes of data and a growing number of mission-critical applications, managing highly complex and wildly heterogeneous environments, meeting more challenging service level agreements (SLAs), and implementing a variety of emerging “green” business initiatives.
Challenge for data centers, globally, has few options exist to generate enough renewable energy for Centre individually. However, two-thirds of Kenya’s electricity now is generated from renewable sources. The country has therefore moved into a leading position in clean power, compared with other African nations and global energy mixes.
UK, renewable energy now accounts for around 25 per cent of the electricity supply. South Africa, it accounts for less than 10 per cent, Egypt is working to meet a target of 20 per cent of its electricity sourced from renewable energy by 2020, and Ghana to reach a target of 10 per cent. EADC’s shift to more Kenya Power electricity push it up the ‘green’ ladder as a green data Centre, powered by a higher percentage of renewable energy than other data centers in Africa, and making it more appealing for environmentally consciously global..
Before the launch of substation, EADC was using Kenya Power electricity for 85 per cent of the time, and diesel-fuelled back-up generators for the other 15 per cent of the time, during national grid power outages.
The new substation means East Africa’s largest, and most sophisticated data Centre, based in Nairobi, is now on mains electricity 97 per cent of the time, substantially cutting its diesel consumption, and raising its green credentials. The move to secure 97 per cent availability of Kenya Power’s remarkably green electricity has now positioned the data Centre as an exceptionally sustainable option, offering it a competitive advantage over data centers elsewhere in Africa according to CEO Mr Kwach.
A lose of a family member, close friend, to lifestyle diseases is exploding. A survey by Broadway Bakery Limited indicates. This is part of its drive to change towards adopting a healthier lifestyle. Which is this healthier lifestyle, cutting on sugar consumption?
I grew up knowing sugar taste sweetest ever, and if you had told me, sugar is dangerous to my healthy in my childhood, i could call you a big liar adult, now I have just learnt I have to reduce consumption of sugar, if I have to claim to live a healthy life. People who lived more than hundred years, their eating habits is more of eating fruits, vegetables and little or no much sugar, in my opinion. Consuming too much simple sugar can affect your immune system negatively for up to 5 hours after you eat it, according to AskDrSears.com
Survey conducted in August, out of 241 Kenyans questioned, aged between 23 to 70 years, on the degree to which lifestyle diseases, had affected their family and close friends. The report showed that the death was more than 250 people in their close circles. This was an average of more than one death per respondent.
Lifestyle diseases have moved to be the top killer in Kenya, in the last 10 years. Killing more than 100,000 Kenyans aged between 30 and 70 years every year. The age that is still productive to country economy. These diseases are responsible for almost 50 per cent of all hospital admissions and about 55 per cent of hospital deaths.
30 per cent of Kenyans are now suffering from premature deaths. This is due to poor eating and exercise habits, a The World Health Organization report says. The impact of this swell is now being felt in every home in the country. The Broadway Bakery survey findings, that respondents knew in average, at least of 5 people suffering from lifestyle diseases in their inner circles, ranging from, cancer, diabetes, heart, high blood pressure, or kidney disease.
The most common disease distressing Kenyan families is heart disease, responsible for close to half of the deaths reported in the survey with the respondents knowing an average of up to 2 people each who suffer from, and have died of, heart disease.
The second most common condition within families and close friends is diabetes closely followed by cancer, both have been shown to be triggered, and aggravated by high sugar consumption.
More shockingly, respondents gave the ages of those in their inner circles presently suffering from these conditions, and having died from them. It indicates surging levels of lifestyle conditions among Kenyan youth.
Fifteen per cent of the male deaths reported from cancer were under 40 years of age. More than twenty per cent of the female deaths were for women between the ages of 30 and age of 40 years. The report further shows Of the reported diabetes sufferers; 41 per cent were under the age of 40 years, and 18 per cent were under the age of 30 years for men, while young women were more afflicted with 46 per cent of sufferers under the age of 40 years and 20 per cent under the age of 30 years. High blood pressure and heart disease remain confined to older age groups, usually over 40 years.
“These findings support our real alarm at the impact of excessive sugar consumption on our younger generation,” said Mr. Bimal Shah, MD of. Broadway Bakery
“The surge in lifestyle diseases has now become a crisis in Kenya and more worrying is the number of new cases being reported amongst younger people, often before they even reach their 30th birthdays, making for a lifetime of health care and often frequent hospitalization.” He added.
The conditions the survey covered are all caused by unhealthy eating habits, and lack of physical exercise. In Broadway Bakery Be-Sugar-Smart drive is aimed at creating awareness across all generations on the prevalence of these diseases, and that too much sugar intake and physical idleness are ways of achieving an early death sentence.
Broadway Bakery aim is to encourage food manufactures to produce healthy foods. Leading by example, Broadway Bakery has been, and continues to; manufacture healthy bread that is low in sugar but rich in nutrients. Diabetes, which is the most strongly related to high sugar consumption, is responsible for 13 per cent of the deaths of family, and friends reported by the survey’s respondents.
These findings tie in with a newly published Kenya STEPwise survey that reported that more than 90 per cent of Kenyans consume less than five servings of fruits and vegetables on most days. And 28 per cent always add sugar to beverages.
More than half of the adult Kenyan population has never had their blood pressure tested, yet one in four people have high blood pressure says the report. Diabetes testing is most neglected, despite its capacity to cause kidney failure, heart disease, amputations and comas. According to the report, only one in ten adults has ever been tested for diabetes.
“The lack of testing is, of itself, a killer,” said Mr Bimal Shah, with Broadway Bakery now organizing a round of activities for World Diabetes Day on 14th November 2016 that it hopes will save further lives, in its drive to address Kenya’s extreme sugar related health issues.
Today’s management teams must rely heavily on business charts and business reports to make decisions and run their business efficiently. Management teams are especially crunched for time and need quick easy ways to analyze large amounts of data and information and make informed decisions. Without the support of their employees these management teams would be unable to perform their responsibilities and drive the business in the right direction. Fortunately management does have the support of their employees and are able to take advantage of informational documents, such as a business chart and a business report.
Because supplemental tools like business charts and business reports are so vital to the success of a company, let’s take a minute to review how management can use these documents as they seek to identify key performance indicators and make decisions that will ultimately drive the success of their business.
A business chart can provide management with a wealth of information. In addition to the valuable information a business chart provides, it also presents information in a manner that is easy to view, analyze and interpret. The value a business chart offers can not be overstated. To begin with a business chart saves the management team time. Think about the difficulties involved in sifting through page after page of data and trying to make meaningful decisions based on what you gathered from that data. Now think about the ease of viewing that same information on one single page that offers a graphical representation, like a business chart does, and how much easier it is to not only understand what the data is telling you but also to make decisions based off of the information present by the business chart. As you can see, making use of a business chart allows management to cut down on their time spent analyzing and interpreting information and spend more time making decisions that will drive the company to future success.
Likewise, a business report can offer similar value to the management team. As a manager one is asked to make decisions concerning a variety of aspects within the business. Management is expected to know the ins and outs of every portion of the business. Again, the management team’s time is valuable and they can hardly be expected to spend the time getting to know the business at every core level. Time simply does not permit this. Thus management must rely on business reports from its supporting cast to keep them up to date on the various departments and divisions within the business. A valuable business report will provide a concise yet detailed overview of the condition of the divisions. In this way a business report can keep a manager in tune with his subordinates and ensure he has a firm grasp on the direction the company as a whole needs to take.
If anything, the key to helping management make the right decisions is being able to provide them with valuable and accurate information, whether it be in the form of a business chart or a business report, so that they can make informed managerial decisions ensuring the firm is headed in the right direction.
|Vivek-managing Director- Right|
Vivek launches home cleaning products manufactured locally to break international dominance. Vivek Investments Ltd announced this week the launch of a new, Kenyan manufactured range of premium home cleaning products.
Vivek Group was started in 1994, with the launch of Vivek Investment Ltd and now spans Vivek Investment Ltd, Vivek Industries (U) Ltd, Marvel Lifestyle Ltd and Rose Jewellery Co.The company has now moved to manufacturing its own line of household supplies under the brand name Ezee.
The Ezee brand provides a full range of cleaning products of a higher quality, beating most of the existing competitor products. These products includes: scouring powder, bleach, toilet cleaner, spanning dishwashing liquid and paste, and all purpose washing liquid.
The range has been launched at a price lower than its competitors. It is offering more concentrated products. This mean ViVek products cleans more and with lasting results.The Ezee brand is challenging the dominance of international brands in the local market.
“Importing goods is a simple case of exporting jobs, making the rise of manufacturing in Kenya, central to our future as a middle income nation, and to tackling our now severe unemployment,” said Mr Chintan Thacker, Vivek Group Managing Director.
According to a 2016 Euromonitor International report, international brands continue to dominate Kenya’s home care products market. Most of the products are imported despite the country’s heavy trade imbalance which has put pressure on the country’s, currency, interest rates, inflation, and unemployment.
Vivek has been named by KPMG as one of Kenya’s Top 100 small and mid sized companies in the last two years. This was based on its pace of manufacturing growth it has built already. It has strongly based in contract manufacturing in areas such as pharmaceutical products. The launch of its own Ezee brand marks a new bid by the company to assert the position of homegrown Kenyan brands in local growth markets.
The range according to Mr Thacker has dominated by liquid cleaning products, rapidly gaining ground in the local market. He said, Liquid detergents are more versatile and multipurpose, in that they can be used for all sorts of tasks, across washing dishes, floors, windows, cars, clothes,and almost all other uses.
Local chains of supper markets , have already signed up to stock the new and locally manufactured Ezee brand products.
consumers are expected to welcomed by the lower price point, which is a relief. With the 2014 Kenya National Bureau of Statistics showing rising producer prices for chemical products as a result of increased prices for soap and detergents, cleaning and polishing preparations.
The manufacturer is offering consumers complimentary gifts with some of the Ezee products, which have all been pretested and proven to be the best for the market.
“We’ll be targeting distributors, wholesalers and retailers for the Ezee brand, as well as supermarkets,” said Mr Chintan.
Product range is manufactured in Kenyan’s capital Nairobi, the Vivek’s manufacturing operation base on Mombasa Road.
“Our manufacturing plant employs world class quality control systems that won us the Company of The Year Award in 2015 for productivity and quality by the Kenya Institute of Management,” said MrChintan.
As part quality control processes, Vivek retains one of every batch of product it manufactures. It is kept until after it’s expiry date. This is so for the manufacturer can continue to be sure of its continuing quality.
|Ezee Brands available in Kenyan market|
Launching Ezee is a realization of years of preparation and development within Vivek, creating new local jobs, and fulfilling the next step in our vision of expanding and promoting manufacturing in Kenya as our nation’s next level of development according to said MrChintan.
The group markets a range of middle class oriented household products. It is the sole East African distributor of the Vinod stainless steel and glassware. It imports and sells of PVC flooring. Its Rose Jewellery Co. sells mid-market jewellery as the only jewellery sold in Kenyan supermarkets, which is offering a unique and high traffic marketing outlet.
“After the staff being trained at the beginning of March, the treatments of the first two patients with Flexitron were completed in only five hours – a significant improvement in treatment time,”
says Elekta application specialist Jeroen Singelenberg. “In addition, the new system enables far more accurate dose distribution, with minimal impact on healthy tissue.”
Mulago Hospital, is the largest hospital in Uganda. It is site of Uganda’s only Cancer Institute and radiotherapy Department. It had been using an ageing Low Dose Rate caesium after-loader model. This required up to 10-14hours per treatment to deliver 20-30 Gy and meant only one patient per day could be treated.
The new and advanced system has been installed as part of the hospital’s two-year, US$49 million renovation. It will allow oncology staff at the hospital to significantly shorten treatment times and treat more patients. Dr. Kavuma Awusi, a medical physicist at the Uganda cancer institute comments: Said, by the second week after initiation, they were treating an average of 5 cervical patients per day. He added that cervical cancer is the most common cancer, accounting for about 40% of the nearly 2000, new cancer patients seen in their department a year.
According Dr.Awusi, the new unit will reduce the brachytherapy waiting time and improve both treatment response and survival rates. Brachytherapy, or, internal radiotherapy, is commonly used to treat cervical, bladder, prostate, and breast, and skin cancer.
Through the temporary or permanent placement of a short range radiation, source close to the tumor inside the body, positioning the radioactive pellet through a technique known as after-loading. After-loading may be done manually by an operator, or remotely, using a controlled delivery treatment plan.
Flexitron’s advanced remote after- loading platform helps the clinical team work safely, and efficiently, and, ensures accuracy in treatment delivery, reducing the likelihood of human error. Typically brachytherapy is linked with low toxicity rates, and a favorable side effect profile.
Brachytherapy improves clinical outcomes, this is by combining a boost with external beam radiation therapy, first, second, third fourth and fifth effective as a monotherapy modality. Uganda, a nation of over 40 million people, where cancer rates are on the increase, faster, more accurate treatment modalities are well-thought-out as important factors.
Though Elekta’s Flexitron brachytherapy system typically uses advanced imaging to assist in treatment planning and dose placement, Uganda Cancer Institute had faced a challenge because it has no suitable imaging systems in place.
“Due to budget constraints, the hospital currently has no MRI and CT scanners or a working radiotherapy simulator. Without imaging capabilities, there was a risk of delivering incorrect treatment, so our team created a solution using standardized plans for each applicator, which they use in conjunction with their fluoroscopy C-arm, to deliver accurate treatment,”
says Singelenberg. Elekta’s managing director, Erik Leksell, says, Cancer is becoming a great challenge for Africa and he is pleased that Mulago Hospital has selected our Flexitron brachytherapy solution.
Radiotherapy, and especially brachytherapy is by far the most cost-effective opportunity and fundamental pillar for both curative and palliative cancer care.
He said as a company, they are committed to support the clinicians at Mulago Hospital to enable them provide the best clinical care going forward.
Elekta’s Flexitron brachytherapy system with Oncentra Brachy allows for faster, more accurate treatment delivery and dose distribution.
