  • Zambia, Zimbabwe give French firm go-ahead to fix Kariba Dam

    Zambia and Zimbabwe will give French engineering firm Razel-Bec the task of repairing Kariba Dam. The dam's walls are swelling, raising the risk of cracks in the structure that holds back up to 180 billion cubic metres of water. A collapse of the dam wall could pose a risk to millions of people in Zambia and Zimbabwe -- as well as Malawi and Mozambique further downstream. The dam was built in the 1950s. According to its safety manager, the expansion should be completed by the end of 2020, while work on the spillway to contain the swelling is expected to be done by 2022.

Human animal hybrids exists. Best kept secret of half human half dog experiment. Human Experimentation An article clams that in Vancouver there exists an undercover laboratory where some of the most heinous human experimentation is going on. Why? Just to satisfy the needs of the rich, the 1% ers, the Illuminati. Leaked photos show that scientists have been able to cross breeds humans with dogs for rich pet lovers with a very specific interest in pets. And what would the price tag be on such an exclusive item? $50,000,000 According to this article a Dr. Paul Bradshaw from the Hartmon College Institute essentially stated that when you're rich there's only so much you can buy for a person who has it all. That getting them a pet human dog hybrid is better than buying them an Iphone 6. The human dog hybrids are intelligent and their vocal chords work, so now when you talk to your dog (In an Aussie accent like I do when no one else is around) your dog can respond. However, it can also tell others what you're really up to when you claim you were just taking a really long shower. Of course animal rights groups are angry, but then so are Human rights groups. However the groups are divided on who's offended the most. This has lead to clashes at protests outside the super secret laboratory. Cops were called to quell the fighting among the groups. Pepper Spray, batons and fire hoses didn't seem to work, so they tried the next best thing...Gluten free, range free, vegan certified coupons for a free decaf soy mocha latte were dropped from a helicopter, the group promptly dispersed and headed for the nearest participating Starbucks location. Ironically, they were no where near the super secret laboratory. Otherwise it wouldn't be super secret. They instead had been protesting outside a Tim Hortons the whole time and just mistook morbidly obese toddlers for one of the animals. If stories like this interest you, be sure to click like and subscribe. But Yes, I'm of course making this all up. As did the purported news site that reported on this. While cross breeding is possible with some species, for example a mule is created by crosse breeding between a female horse and a male donkey. Cross breeding between humans and animals is currently impossible. In one notorious example. Russian Scientist Illya Ivanovich attempted to impregnate female chimpanzees with male human sperm. And rumors suggest he might have even attempted to impregnate a human female with chimpanzee sperm. In either case, pregnancy did not occur. At one time he was celebrated for his work, but when the political mood changed and turned against him. He was arrested and sent to work as a vet in what is now Modern day Kazakhstan. What you see in the photos are sculptures and are the work of Australian Artist Patricia Piccinini who's hybrid realism sculptures like this one The Young Family have created a stir on the internet in the past. This image titled Newborn was even used in a claim that a mother had given birth to a baby elephant hybrid that was the reincarnation of the Hindu deity Ganesha. Piccinini says she uses her art to force discussion on how technology impacts life. “Its about evolution, nature – how nature is such a wonderful thing, we're just here to witness it. Its not here for us – genetic engineering, changing the body.” Please be sure to support her site instead of the bogus news sites out there.

We will first build some demonstration stoves, then it is expected that people from other estates will come and buy from us.

Mid shot of worker measuring on metal sheet 15. SOUNDBITE (Chichewa): Ken Chilewe, Ken Steel Engineering Director: "The rocket stove works so efficiently because of the combination of the design, exact diameters, mild steel, and use of insulation material.

SOUNDBITE (Chichewa): James Kazembe, Eastern Produce Malawi Lauderdale Tea Estate Factory Engineer: "These rocket stoves are smoke free, and one cooks much quicker than on open fires. So it's much more efficient. These rocket stoves also use much less firewood than an open fire - there is a 75% or more reduction in use of firewood." 29. Wide view Ken Steel employee cutting metal sheet with angle grinder Mulanje, Malawi:, July 21st, 2008 30.Wide pan tracking man with bicycle carrying firewood LEAD IN: A simple cooking oven is helping to transform energy use and improve the lives of people in villages across southern Africa. The 'rocket stoves' burn fuel more efficiently than traditional wood fires, helping to improve air quality and reduce the destruction of forests. The programme is vital to people in countries like Malawi which are too poorly resourced to develop expensive new technology.
