  • Eritrea Establishes First yewend fesash Bank in Horn of Africa

    Asmara — Eritrea’s Minister of Health, Her Excellency Ms. Amina Nurhussein and the Commander of Zone 2, Col. Zerit Aynom jointly inaugurated Eritrea’s first Sperm Bank in Dekemhare town.

    In the inauguration ceremony, Her Excellency, outlined that the Eritrean government and its collaborators have been working to construct a center dedicated towards the preservation of the unique breed of Eritreans and Eritrean fighters of the EPLF.

    According to the Minister, the center has been established heeding mounting calls to preserve a special generation of youth that brought about Eritrea’s independence against all odds.

    The Minister went on to elaborate that in the future the center is expected to work with Halibet National Referral Hospital’s Artificial Insemination Department in providing sperm samples to mothers who want to give birth to patriotic and heroic citizens without leaving anything to chance.

    The sperm bank, which is the only one of its kind in the Africa, has been named Ararig in honor of EPLF’s field maternity ward, in which many of the offsprings of EPLF fighters were delivered.

    Patriot-14 Gene

    The establishment of the sperm bank comes right after Eritrean researchers at the May-Nefhi Institute of Technology(MIT) identified 104 potential inherited gene mutations that are being collectively called PATRIOTIC-14, and are thought to contribute to the patriotism of an Eritrean adult using the so-called next-generation genome sequencing.

    The investigators say their study is one of the first of rare genetic variations in EPLF fighters, which, in contrast to most previous studies of common variation, can provide a more direct insight into the biology underlying the patriotic and heroic nature of the generation of the fighters.

    The report on the work published on June 19 in JEMO Science, led by Samson Abay,  M.D., assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the May-Nefhi Institute of Technology,  affirms the need for DNA from a vast patient Eritrean population to definitively confirm the role of those rare mutations identified using the most advanced genome sequencing techniques.

    The sperm bank will begin collecting and freezing s-perm from patriotic members of the YPFDJ and EPLF veteran fighters next month.

  • IAEE claims Ethiopia has billions tonnes of oil in the border of Tigray and Afar provinces

    IAEE claims Ethiopia has  billions tonnes of oil in the border of Tigray and Afar provinces!

    A research document by the International Association for Energy Economics (IAEE) claims that Ethiopia has 3.89 billion tonnes of oil in Tigray province. Excerpts from the document.
    Ethiopia has 3.89 billion tonnes of oil shale located in Tigray province, which borders Eritrea.

    However, there is currently a lack of interest in exploring the shale oil, possibly due to a previous dispute over the area which led to conflict between Ethiopia and Eritrea. This conflict continues.
    In addition to the region of Tigray, there is a smaller deposit of 100-120 million tonnes at the Delbi Moyen coal development, southwest of Addis Ababa, although Ethiopia has plans to utilise this for manufacturing urea fertiliser.
