Originally named Nyanga West, Gugulethu (or Gugs for short) was established in 1958 to house the influx of workers to Cape Town from the rural Transkei region. Like neighboring Langa, Gugulethu was a site of mass resistance during apartheid and drew international attention with the murder of the Gugulethu Seven by South African security forces and the killing of American student and anti-apartheid activist Amy Biehl in the early 1990s.
Congressional outrage indeed. At least the girls in Columbia were providing a useful service. Zero and the Congress are taking our money before we ever see it and providing absolutely NOTHING! They can't even agree upon an operating budget.
There is the old joke about prostitutes and government here. But what keep nagging me is this: the don't you know who I am, and the sloppiness of it all. I understand boys being boys, but it gets back to overworked. Remember, the recommissioning of equipment to keep up with the schedule and most importantly the personnelle.
"So why did you pick me?"
"Because you are the best of what's left"
Hot Shots! Part Deux
Its not like the people are picked randomly. It makes me want to re-evaluate all the other fubars, such as the high center in Ireland or the other schedule leaks, schedules perhaps a bit more precise than a web search.

An Iranian diplomat has been accused of fondling girls at a local swimming pool in Brazil's capital city, a case testing local perceptions of diplomatic immunity laws.
Accept his diplomatic immunity, then PNG his ass. Any diplomat who forgets When in Rome needs to find another occupation.
Police jugged the diplomat on Saturday at a swim club in Brasilia, where they found the man surrounded by a mob of irate parents, some seeking to thrash him and others pleading for calm until the authorities arrived, police officials said. Police didn't name the accused man, citing his diplomatic status. Police said the man denied wrongdoing.

A very telling bit of site selection criteria: Pilgrim, who is also Ferris State's vice president for victimization prostilization diversity and inclusion, initially considered giving his collection to a historically black college, but he wanted to be "near it enough to make sure it was taken care of".
[Daily Nation (Kenya)] Barely 24 hours after James Ibori bagged a 13-year jail term in the United Kingdom for money laundering, jubilation has turned to anger following reports of planned repatriation to Nigeria of the $250 million stolen by the former governor of Delta State.
Nigerians both at home and in the Diaspora are protesting over plans to return the money to Delta State where the current governor, Mr Emmanuel Uduaghan, is Ibori's cousin and "stooge".
A statement by the UK-based Anioma Diaspora, a Nigerian socio-cultural and good governance campaign group, said that "returning Ibori's loot to Delta State would be senseless and counter-productive in the light of the fact that the present governor of Delta State, Emmanuel Uduaghan, is a blood relation of Ibori.
They say the money would be stolen again from the poor people of Delta State by the same corrupt officials that Ibori brought in to succeed him or it will be in safe-keeping to be handed over to Ibori by his cousin the moment he walks out of the UK prison.
According to the front man of Anioma Diaspora, Mr Clement Ofodu, the money would not be used for the benefit of the long-suffering people of Delta State .
He added that the that the new governor has previously been indicted as Mr Ibori's tag-team partner, having served for several years in Ibori's cabinet first as Commissioner for Heath; then catapulted to a more strategic position of Secretary to State Government (SSG) and finally imposed on the poor people of Delta State as Ibori's successor".
[Bangla Daily Star] The capital's Nayapaltan area turned into a combat zone yesterday as BNP activists fought with law enforcers who tried to stop the party's procession protesting the missing of its leader Ilias Ali.
Over a hundred people, including BNP acting secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, RTV news hound Iqbal and cameraperson Emon, were maimed during the clash. According to police, some 27 cops were hurt.
Starting around 5:15pm, the clash continued till the situation was brought under control by police and Rab around 6:00pm.
The angry activists smashed 30 to 40 vehicles and torched three others including a police jeep in areas adjacent to Nayapaltan. Two buses -- one at Farmgate and another at Malibagh -- were seen burning around 8:30pm.
They also damaged cars of television stations RTV and ATN news.
The opposition supporters went kaboom! five handmade bombs near the BNP headquarters at Nayapaltan, witnesses say.
Also yesterday, local units of BNP enforced dawn-to-dusk hartals ... a peculiarly Bangla combination of a general strike and a riot, used by both major political groups in lieu of actual governance ... in four districts under Sylhet division.
At noon, a BNP delegation briefed foreign diplomats about the issue centring Ilias, also an organising secretary of the party and the president of its Sylhet district unit.
Another delegation led by Mirza Fakhrul met Home Minister Shahara Khatun at the latter's secretariat office and urged her to take immediate measures to locate Ilias. Sahara assured the opposition leaders of best effort to rescue the BNP leader.
The BNP-led alliance will observe a nationwide hartal on Sunday.
Former politician Ilias along with his driver has remained missing since Tuesday night and his car was found abandoned in the capital's Mohakhali. The BNP alleged the government agencies picked them up.
Kazi Mainul Islam, officer-in-charge of Banani Police station, said yesterday that the abandoned car sustained damages in its back bumper. Experts were now testing what might have happened to the automobile before it was abandoned.
Ex-Hawthorn president and former premier Jeff Kennett has lashed out at the Australian Football League (AFL) for ruling that all grounds must install prayer rooms.
It comes after Richmond's Bachar Houli said the requirement for Muslims to pray five times a day was preventing many from attending AFL games. Houli said many had to pray in carparks or stairwells at AFL grounds.
But Kennett called the AFL's mandate "ridiculous".
He said, "To put prayer rooms into sporting venues is not part of the Australian lexicon. I think it is an over-reaction. It's not practical, it's stupid, it's political correctness gone mad."
Kennett said the move would also destroy the culture of football and make unnecessary change. He said, "In the old days when you went to a football ground there were very few stands, there was mud on the ground that was real football."
Houli, an observant Muslim who works for the AFL one day a week as a multicultural ambassador, asked the league chief to provide prayer rooms at all grounds. Prayer rooms, for all denominations, have been recently introduced at three major stadiums. But the AFL is now requiring prayer rooms at all other interstate venues.
Houli said few fans knew of the existing prayer rooms and Mr Demetriou said prayer rooms were long overdue.
League chief Andrew Demetriou said, "It was a request from Bachar in his role as a multicultural ambassador and, to be honest, I was genuinely surprised it wasn't thought of before. We will be speaking to all our venues about providing a prayer room, which is, of course, for any denomination. It's again a demonstration of our inclusiveness."
Houli, who prays five times a day,including five minutes before and after games, said many Muslims weren't going to the footy because of a lack of prayer rooms. He said all Muslims would need to pray once while at games, with women in an enclosed area.
In what seems to be a particularly gross demonstration of bad taste,
...but a clear illumination of ideology, goals and character...
a Facebook page affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street protest group sported an anti-Semitic caricature Thursday -- Holocaust Remembrance Day.
The caricature, which features the classic anti-Semitic portrayal of the Jewish stereotype, depicts an elderly man wearing a hat with a Star of David and driving a car whose steering wheel is the United Nations ...where theory meets practice and practice loses... emblem, and shifting gear using a stick shift knob in the image of US President Barack Obama Because I won... The post attracted harsh criticism from Jews worldwide, with one saying that "Such a post, and on Holocaust Day, is a humble reminder of why we have to safeguard Israel."
Another remarked that Paul Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany, "Would have been proud of this photo, which has nothing to do with economy and everything to do with anti-Semitism. What a wonderful way to get rid of the American Jews and Israelis who supported this movement."
Occupy Wall Street is a protest movement that began on September 17, 2011 in New York City's Wall Street financial district, under the banner "The 99% Project," meant to protest social and economic inequality.
This is not good.
Director, National TB Control Programme, Dr. Ijaz Qadeer, said that each year 400,000 new cases of TB were reported in the country and over 5000 health facilities in the country were providing treatment facilities to the TB patients. He said that the role of lady health workers was of vital importance until the orcs finish expelling the ladies from public service, then things will get even worse
for creating awareness in the masses and providing counselling services for early treatment. He further said that the main focus of the TB control programme was its eradication and early detection of new cases of TB and to provide patients testing and treatment facilities for which community mobilization was also under way.
