  • Ethiopia’s gov’t spokesman decried the election of Trump to lead the U.S

    Ethiopia’s newly sworn in government spokesman, Negeri Lencho, said the election of Donald Trump is not good both for his country and for the African continent as a whole and has described him as ‘an extremely neo- liberalist.’ According to him, Trump is ‘always inward looking’ with less care for the rest of the world.

    “I don’t think the election of Trump will benefit Africa,” Negeri said adding that he was wishing Secretary Hillary Clinton could win the 2016 US election. “First, he is only interested in trade deals that only benefit the United States. Second, his immigration policy could affect thousands of Ethiopians who live in the United States. And finally, his political tactics are dangerous.”

    According to Negeri, Tump may change some of his hard- line policies once he occupies the White House in January. He has described the current U.S- Ethiopian relations as ‘very good’ and ‘longstanding.’

  • Scientists Create Asgardia, the First Ever Nation in Space, and You Can Join

    If you had enough of the often-depressing world events and the seemingly unresolvable conflicts they engender, you might want to head for space and join the first-ever “nation state in space” that’s been announced by a team of scientists and legal experts. It’s called Asgardia and anyone can become its citizen.

    As the site for the project explains, Asgardia is a name that comes from Norse mythology, where Asgard was the name of a city in the sky. In the Marvel universe, Asgardia was built was Tony Stark and ruled by the All-Mother (since Odin was in exile).

    Asgardia is the brain-child of the accomplished Russian scientist and businessman Igor Ashurbeyli, who describes the motivation behind this endeavor as an attempt to create a nation founded on “Peace in Space, and the prevention of Earth’s conflicts being transferred into space.” The idea is to create a “mirror of humanity in space” in low-Earth orbit that would be devoid of Earthly divisions based on borders and religions. As Ashurbeyli says: “In Asgardia we are all just Earthlings!

  • 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.

    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.
