EAST AFRICA – Death toll climbs
KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) — Hundreds of solemn people watched Friday as body after body was pulled from a capsized ferry that Tanzanian authorities said was badly overcrowded and upended in the final stretch before reaching shore. The death toll was above 130 but horrified witnesses feared that would rise as a second day of searching neared an end. “This is a great disaster for our nation,” president John Magufuli said.

Relationships are key in all aspects of life. Perhaps this is something that we have lost in our busyness. I remember when we were children, my dad used to make it a point to take the family to visit family friends on Sunday evenings.

‘Write sexual harassment policies now’, employers told
Employers must have policies in place on sexual harassment by December 15, a requirement under the nine-month-old law to prevent the workplace scourge, the labour minister said Friday. It is important for employers to have sexual harassment policies in place, not just because it is a legal requirement, but because of the benefits to them and their employees, Minister Colin Jordan said. Jordan was speaking at the Caribbean Training and Research Group (CARI-TARG) conducted a workshop on the...
Living with Endometriosis
While a range of treatments for endometriosis exists, there are limitations on their effectiveness: drug therapy carries a dependency on continuous usage; and there are risks of surgery with a 40 per cent probability that this invasive handling would not work. This leaves most women who live with this condition with some semblance of its monthly painful symptoms until menopause when menstrual cycles are ended. Endometriosis is a monthly agony that comes on before or during the period but is...
