UGANDA JOINS DIGITAL FROM ANALOG

The portal from Analogue to Digital terrestrial T.V migration has finally come to Uganda which is a first step in the digital television industry. H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni the president of Uganda had earlier on said that this will happen before 2020, which was like a dream never come to many who took it as a spurious statement. It was a long awaited day for the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) which had announced 17th June 2015 for the deadline of Analogue in Uganda. The difference between the two is that analogue transmits signal in a continuous wave while digital transmits signal in a discrete wave and also allows more channels to be broadcasted which is among the importance of a digital terrestrial TV. There are different options to receive digital

The STB/ decoder is a receiver that decodes or converts the digital signal to analogue to enable the channels to be displayed on your analogue TV set. According to UCC, this migration will bring about more efficient use of avail

able radio spectrum for broadcasting and the associated benefits to the broadcasting sector like provision of more services, better quality picture and sound.

BLEACHING IN 6HRS Every researcher concentrates on bringing up new tactics in the old fashion of things. According to the publication of the Moscow faculty of sciences, Researchers have developed a chemical process to whiten a person in just a quarter day, which is one of the unique and surprising new things that have came up in the 21st century. This sounds bizarre but the chemical process has been proven beyond reasonable doubt to be highly effective and of no harm though it is not possible to reverse to the original skin color. Why bleach? To many, changing from original God given skin seems to be a crazy idea but it is one of the most common practices in our societies. According to research black, females are the most creatures that like to transform their skin color although a minority section of black men also appreciate the act. Most people bleach due to band wagon effect whereby they perceive the act as being stylish and fashionable since they see majority of the people change their skin color. Some do it to attract their steamy partners or just because they are furious about their black skin, while others bleach in order to fit in a society of people with light or white skin.

13

How the chemical process to whiten works. With a mixture of Oxytane and benzodiazephine, it would take 6 hours for a black person to transform to brown on condition that he/she showers with 50 grams per liter of water. So what will be the impact of this discovery? Will it encourage more people to bleach or? The laboratory at the origin of the discovery announced that about 254 people have been treated by the method which is a big feat achieved from their research. “The amuse discovery is a bridge for the immigrants who feel like they are segregated within the Russian premises and after their black skins are transformed they can be seen as the Russian natives without discrimination,� said the Russian authorities. Although the above research is seen as a way of eroding segregation in Russia, the association of the human rights decried the above statement made by the Russian authorities. And now the battle continues between these two parties and we hope the best resolution is outcome through their truce.

We bring you the full list of the top 100 wealthiest celebrities this year as ranked by Forbes. They include Musicians, footballers, Actors and Actresses name them. Americans dominate the list by 80% followed by Britain in the second place with 10%. We witnessed two awesome boxers, Floyd MayWeather and Manny Pacquiao who had a bout between themselves in the May 2nd event that was dubbed “the fight of the century” after which they both parted with handsome paycheques that pushed them to the top of the list overnight. How attractive? May be most of us should try boxing. But is it that easy? Anyway, nothing comes on a silver platter. None of the African celebrities has made it to the top 100 this year and they still have a long way to go but at least we know they have

some great dime weighing around their names. On top of the African celebrities when we talk about wealth is Senegalese’ Akon whose net worth is 80 Million Dollar which is a difference of 15 Million dollar from the Wealth owned by Kevin Hart, a musician from Germany who is the last in the list of the top 100. Acquiring wealth is a whole different thing from maintaining it. This list will definitely change next year with new celebrities taking some positions and some of the ones in this list moving up and others down the list. Those that are below started from the bottom and now they are here. Hope next year one of you will be among because one thing is certain that you not resting, it’s a dynamic world.

respiratory passages. Something else worth trying is an infusion of liquorice root. Liquorice is said to strengthen the immune system while Echinacea, sometimes referred to as the ‘immune herb; stimulates the body to fight off infections.

MUN G:

THE HIP - HOP SENSATION Definitely as you recall way back the humbled Hip Hop artist started his crawling career in music with Baboon Forest Entertainment which led the house at large to notice him and his songs like mbwase that rose to their highest peaks to top the music billboards of Kampala at the time. Well, you can’t deny the fact that at the time also his fellow musicians in the baboon forest entertainment like the likes of Keko, GNL, Bigtrill were also at their best in their music career and so the crew was hot in hip hop and were hitting chats in the city. What makes the artistry Mun G to have a block buster in most of his songs? Who is Mun G anyway? Born on 25th December 1985 in Gayaza town Masaka District He’s real name is Mungi Matovu Emmanuel and lived in Masaka for most of his teenage life. He went to Bright Grammar Primary School Masaka for his entire primary and M a s a k a Secondary School f o r s e c o n d a r y . And he also holds a bachel o r ’ s degree in Comp u t e r S c i ence pursued from M a k e r e r e University. Back to the punch line tell me one song that is featuring the hip hop star and has aerated on air in this year and hasn’t attracted the ears of people this year that’s why I can’t even deny the fact that Mun G is the Chris Brown of Uganda Why? It’s not that Mun G is an RnB star as the international star is which is


Be Informed and Learn the fact and yeah it’s beyond reasonable doubt that Mun G doesn’t sing RnB but well, on the international scene Chris brown is the one and only that has had many collabo’s internationally and they have made it to the top peak this year which has also applied for our very own Mun G in the pearl of Africa. This crazy superb dude has featured in many collabo’s in our land and their sure have become a hit in the year few examples I can give is follow my rules, Kankunganye and the list is endless. I personally can’t fail to give a great applause to our own and definitely am sure that the audience should have a consensus with me about the idea that the hip hop star has had quite a number of collabo’s

that have striked a missile peak in the bill boards of the city this year. Although this dude is running chats and is ranked to a big international music star like Chris Brown, Mun G still has inadequate skills to rake it to the international scene and yet we wouldn’t wish for our domicile boy to be only seen locally but also he should be seen internationally. Yes, being recognized locally is such a great thing that shows you are amiable in your talent and therefore you should keep it up but going internationally is a wonderful scene that almost every artist dreams of when he/she starts the music career and his/her local fans will be in a stanza to soar their support to their artist.
