The celebrations had really begun a full 24 hours earlier, when Samoa and neighboring Tokelau hopped across the international date line, skipping Friday and moving instantly from Thursday to Saturday. The time-jump revelry that began as 12:01 a.m. on Dec. 31 spilled into the night, with Samoans and tourists crowding around beaches and pools to toast the start of the new year.

SEOUL — North Korea indicated on Monday that Kim Jong-un, the son and successor of its deceased leader, Kim Jong-il, was being elevated to the top of the ruling Workers’ Party’s hierarchy, calling him head of its Central Committee.
The young successor’s apparent rise to the party leadership came two days after the North’s state-run news media published an entreaty for him to become supreme commander of the country’s Korean People’s Army, whose support is considered crucial to his consolidation of power. The top brass also moved quickly to swear their allegiance to Mr. Kim.

Nimekuja kuwatembelea kuona hali halisi ya uharibifu wa makazi yenu, mali zenu na miundombinu yetu kutokana na maafa ya maafuriko katika mitaa hii ya kata ya mabibo. Kuanzia maafa yatokee tarehe 20 Disemba mpaka tarehe 24 Disemba nimekuwa pamoja na wananchi wenzangu wa jimbo la Ubungo bega kwa bega katika jitihada za uokoaji na utoaji wa huduma za kijamii katika maeneo mbalimbali mathalani Msewe, Ubungo, Kisiwani, Kibo, Mburahati, Sinza D, Sinza E, Uzuri, Manzese Chakula Bora, Mburahati Kisiwani, Msigani, Mbezi Kibanda cha Mkaa, Kimara B. Na pia, nimeenda kutoa misaada kwa majimbo jirani ya Kinondoni (Magomeni Sunna na Kigogo), Kawe (Msasani Bonde la Mpunga na Bunju) na Ilala (Mchikichini). Kutokufika Mabibo, katika hizo siku chache, kunadhihirisha ukubwa wa maafa yenyewe na ilikuwa vigumu kuwepo mahali pote wakati wote. Hata hivyo, katika wakati huo wote nilikuwa na mawasiliano na wananchi na viongozi kuhakikisha kwamba mamlaka zinazohusika na uokoaji zinafika katika maeneo haya. Nawashukuru wote mliotoa ushirikiano wakati wa uokoaji na nawashukuru pia mliotoa msaada wa hali na mali kwa majirani zenu katika kipindi hiki kigumu.

'TACTICAL ROAD MARCH', US TROOPS MOVING OUT OF IRAQ

(CNN) -- Early Sunday, as the sun ascended to the winter sky, the very last American convoy made its way down the main highway that connects Iraq and Kuwait.

The military called it its final "tactical road march." A series of 110 heavily armored, hulking trucks and Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles carrying about 500 soldiers streamed slowly but steadily out of the combat zone.

A few minutes before 8 a.m., the metal gate behind the last MRAP closed. With it came to an end a deadly and divisive war that lasted almost nine years, its enormous cost calculated in blood and billions.

CHRISTMAS WISHES FROM WHITE HOUSE



REST IN PEACE KIM JONG LI


PYONGYANG, North Korea – Even as the world changed around him, North Korean leader Kim Jong Il remained firmly in control, ruling absolutely at home and keeping the rest of the world on edge through a nuclear weapons program.
Inheriting power from his father in 1994, he led his nation through a devastating famine while frustrating the U.S. and other global powers with an on-again, off-again approach to talks on giving up nuclear arms in return for energy and other assistance. Kim was one of the last remnants of a Cold War-era that ended years earlier in most other countries.
His death was announced Monday by state television two days after he died. North Korea's news agency reported that he had died at 8:30 a.m. Saturday after having a heart attack on a train, adding that he had been treated for cardiac and cerebrovascular diseases for a long time. He was 69.

ILIPOISHIA:
Tukaenda kukaa kwenye mawe makubwa yaliyokuwa pembeni ya mto, mbali na makazi ya watu, mahali palipokuwa na miti mingi iliyoshonana. Tulipofika tu, kabla hatujafanya chochote, tulisikia sauti ya mtu akituamuru kutulia kama tulivyokuwa. Tukashtukia wanaume wanne wenye miili mikubwa na silaha za jadi wakitokeza kwenye miti, Kim alikuwa mjanja kwani aliruka kwenye mawe makubwa na kufanikiwa kutimua mbio, akaniacha peke yangu nikiwa sijui cha kufanya.
Mmoja kati ya wale wanaume alianza kumkimbiza Kim, wengine wakanizunguka na kuanza kunivutavuta. Nikashtukia mmoja akinivuta sketi yangu, akakata vishikizo na kuivuta kwa nguvu. Nikabakiwa na ‘skin tight’. Akanibeba juu juu na kunilaza juu ya jiwe kubwa. Nikawa napiga kelele za kuomba msaada lakini hakuna aliyenisikia. Sikuelewa wanataka kunifanya nini, nikahisi hatari kubwa mbele yangu.

QUETTA, Pakistan – Assailants torched more than 20 tankers in Pakistan carrying fuel for U.S. and NATO troops in neighboring Afghanistan on Thursday, in the first reported attack since Islamabad closed the border to protest coalition airstrikes that killed 24 Pakistani troops last month.
Several hundred trucks have been stranded at poorly guarded terminals around the country as they wait for Pakistan to reopen its two border crossings into Afghanistan. Around 40 percent of the non-lethal supplies for U.S.-led troops in landlocked Afghanistan travel across Pakistani soil.

Assange once again! Liberty of Media?

HASH POWER 7113

By Karla Adam, Updated: Monday, December 5, 7:41 PM

LONDON — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange prolonged his stay in Britain on Monday, winning the right to petition the Supreme Court to hear his case against extradition to Sweden over sex crime allegations.

On Monday, two High Court judges in London ruled that Assange’s case raised a question of “general public importance,” which means he now has 14 days to lodge a written appeal to the Supreme Court, the highest court in Britain. The Supreme Court will then decide whether to hear his appeal.


The ruling represented an important lifeline for Assange who, if he had lost his bid, would have been extradited within 10 days to Sweden, where his alleged crimes include rape, sexual molestation and unlawful coercion.

Speaking to a battalion of journalists outside the Royal Courts of Justice in central London, Assange said: “I think that is the correct decision and I am thankful. The long struggle for justice for me and for others continues.”

While rejecting one of Assange’s main arguments for appeal, the High Court judges said he could apply to the Supreme Court on the specific issue of whether the European arrest warrant under which he was detained a year ago is flawed because it was signed by a public prosecutor. His lawyers argue that this is not a “judicial authority” as required by law.

Inna Llillahi wa Inna Ilayh Rajiun, Surat Al -Baqara, Verse 156


HASH POWER 7113?? Acreditation: Wikipedia
In Islam, Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un (إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ) is part of the Quran, Sura Al-Baqara, Verse 156. The full verse is as follows:

الذين اذا اصابتهم مصيبة قالوا انا لله وانا اليه راجعون "Who, when a misfortune overtakes them, say: 'Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return'." [1]

This is the phrase that Muslims recite when a person is struck by calamity in life,[2][3] and is usually recited upon hearing the news of someone's death.[3] This can also be recited in any situation involving risk of any sort. The phrase is commonly translated as "Verily we belong to God, and to God we return."
