Happy New Year It is beginning of the year and you are set on one thing!! Change. I know right ? The new year new me crap (forgive my French) is here again. I always have reservations for New Year I try to think about things I can change in the New Year and I find very little to do. When the year progresses I find the things that need to be changed and change them and try out new things. Bottom line is I do not have resolutions at the beginning of the year This issue is one of those that the team tries to reason out a few days before Christmas break and could not really find the right theme to focus on so we decided on a vast number of issues to deal with.
One of the issues we looked at is on reproductive health, new albums to look forward to this year and the new songs that have been released before we closed up for break. As the year progresses we’ll keep you informed about our events that you need to be attending and many other things. Keep an eye will you. HAVE A BLESSED 2018 WILL YOU!!

WE CELEBRATE THE WRONG PEOPLE IN SOCIETY THAT’S WHY WE HAVE THE WRONG MORALS BYTHE TEAM
A LOOK INTO REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH ARTICLE BY FATIMA MUSTAFA
Looks at Reproductive health as a whole and the progress over the years. Is there something to celebrate? What are the challenges? Reproductive Health addresses the reproductive process, functions and system of all life stages reproductive health can also be referred to as SEXUAL HEALTH. It mainly deals with matters affecting people in relation to their sexual lives, the whole reproduction process at large. Reproductive health is very important because it plays a big part in general health which affects the social economic and human development. A healthy population has the energy and creativity that promotes development.
The main purpose of good reproductive health is to have responsible, satisfying and safer sex life and having the capability to reproduce and the freedom to decide if, when and how often to do so. That is, knowing when to get into a sexual kind of relationship accepting what comes after, plan on the number of children one wishes to have and how to space them. It helps one to avoid sexually transmitted diseases. People have to be informed of effective affordable and acceptable ways of contraception and how they can get them. They also ought to have access to sexual reproductive health care services and work with educational programs that stress on the importance of women going through safe Pregnancy and child birth, giving couples a higher chance of healthy infants.
Kenya for instance is working hard to ensure that its citizens get to know of the importance of having a small spaced family. A mother, after delivery is educated on family planning, how it works and when she can opt for them. Through the Maternal Child Health Family Planning (MCH/FP) program and organizations like UNFPA (the United Nation Population Fund). The government of Kenya made an original FP2020 commitment at the 2012 London Summit on Family planning with an update in 2017 including specific policy, financial, and program and service delivery pledges- to meet their Family planning goals.
Following the commitment pledge, the government has worked hard to promote and improve the access to family planning to meet the goals set, that is to have a reduced number of teenage pregnancy from 18%- 12% by 2020, disbursement of free condoms at specific places mostly being institutions. It has also worked on reducing the prices of contraceptives for family planning reasons, the prices I believe are friendly to people, oral contraceptives go for not more than Ksh.50, Inject able contraceptive that can last for 1-3 months go for not more than Ksh.100, implants that can last up to 5 years go for Ksh.500 favoring the low income earners in the society. Kenyans are advised to get a number of children they can manage, considering that the country's economy.
Despite all this there happen to be inequalities in getting health services among the people this are based on socioeconomic status, educational level, age, ethnicity, religious background and the resources around the environment. This is just like any other service that is offered, the better off you are in a community the higher and better your chances of getting satisfactory services. Places that are least developed for instance the interior parts of Kenya like Isiolo, Garissa, Moyale, Marsabit, Tana River, Lamu, Turkana, Pokot and many others. The people in these areas have little or no education; they therefore will have little involvement in reproductive health issues, they see it at as something that is done in Western cultures.
Most are so traditional and cultured that they can't talk openly about issues relating to sex. They also believe that God wants them to have as many children as possible; taming such, proves to be a problem. This places lack access to proper health facilities. Most cases on maternal and child mortality are from these areas, the mothers do not get to attend clinics during pregnancies, they do home deliveries increasing the risk of losing lives in cases of complications. Much has been done to rectify this say for instance the Beyond Zero Campaign by First Lady Margaret Kenyatta that has helped a lot of mothers and children, the program has a hand in the drop of new mother to child HIV infections by 50% since 2013 that is from 12000 to 6600 it created awareness and helped solve many maternal and child HIV infections and mortality in Kenya.

MOTOR WORLD WITH KEVIN MUTHOMI -

Your Motor world explored in the best way possible. Kevin Muthomi examines the Tesla model S P100D
WELCOME A NEW YEAR 2018 BY MUTHOMI
, full of things that have never been. It is the time to be thankful to God for the blessings of the year 2017and to take stock of all our achievements. In the meantime enjoy the happiness as you resolve to find opportunities hidden in each new day. Remember the words of Mehmet Murat ildon ''New year's most glorious light is sweet hope''. Our sweet hope here at Motor World in 2018 is Tesla model S P100D. This is the car that has showed us that batterypowered future could still be cool. This is a simple, electric-powered saloon car and has established Tesla as a force to reckon with. This car is engineered to be the safest car on the road. The future arrived sooner than we expected and Tesla won't be the only one playing on this field because every major automaker needs plug-in sales to stay relevant as a brand and compliant as a corporation. This is due to some countries like China and Britain having in mind to ban combustion engines in the future.
Tesla model S is the fastest accelerating production car in the world thanks to ludicrous plus mode software upgrade by Elon Musk's company. This can be confirmed by Motor Trend’s ''best drivers car'' competition drag race 7
at the Vandenberg Air Force base in California .In a competition against some of the fire breathing sport cars available today, Tesla rose to the top, 11 roaring engines lagging behind it as it drove imperviously in silence. Driving a car that is quick but with no engine noise provides a surreal experience. The list of exotic super cars was; Ferrari 488 GTB Alfa Romeo Giulis Quadrifoglio Porsche 911 Turbo S Chevrolet corvette grand sport Chevrolet camaro ZL1 1LE Aston Martin DB11 Porsche 718 cayman S Nissan GT-R Nismo Lexus LC 500 McLaren 570 GT
The car accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 2.3 seconds. The 85 KWH performance versions develop a massive 416 BHP (brake horse power) and 442 lb ft of torque. The ludicrous speed upgrade is the only production car ever made that can give you this experience. The Model S boasts of the longest battery capacity of any production EV (Electric vehicle). This means the 100 KWH batteries can achieve a range of 315 miles (about195Km) per full charge, according to Tesla. That's an increase of about 15 miles per charge over the model S 90D and P90D and 300 plus miles per charge are a significant milestone for any electric vehicle.
Even when the A/C is turned on, the biggest wheel base installed and the temperature above average, with your foot set to 70 MPH, the P100D should still have a range of about 250 miles per charge. The car has autopilot and can get you from point A to point B by using only one radar camera and one sensor. Other cars require a multiple of sensors. The Tesla model S P100D is the future. With the Tesla you do not have to start the car all you have to do is to engage the gear. All you have to do is clog the accelerator and off you go-no lag, no waiting for the engine to get into the power band and best of all no noise whatsoever. I encourage the youth and teenagers to pursue courses in software development, as you can see Tesla model s P100D has a software ludicrous plus and other car companies are using softwares. There is a future for software developers but you have to work hard and smart.

Still hustling on how to gather them votes na their roads to power Ndio wakiweza next agenda shamba kuzigawa Hii leadership ndio our disease na still nahope kuna mtu an a research hiyo dawa
Kenyans tumekuwa ripped off everything hata our pride Forcing their way up leadership yet none of them anaweza kutuguide Leaders come from God sa sijui ni law gani mmekuwa mkiabide Then ndio tough times zikija in other countries mnaenda kuhide Agric sector Imeasahaulika lands zimegeuka brown ungethani zimekuwa dyed Fixed on the same spot Kenya hatusongi kumbe kwa post ya corruption tulishakuwa tied
Sa si ni hiyo change bado tunasaka At least mayouth waache kuwa lit na Kenyan motto ya pamoja tumakesure Imewaka
Waache kustone at least economy pia iwache kudrag Na kwa hii disease as Kenyans we all face Christ ndio the only required drug
The World Health Organization (WHO) assessed in 2008 that " Reproductive and sexual ill-health accounts for 20% of the global burden of ill-health for women, and 14% for men.” This is to say that, despite the fact that everyone has to be involved women are the most affected. Depriving them the rights to make crucial choices about their bodies and future this is because women are the ones that bear and nature children, it is them that play a big part in bringing up a child.

Unbearable Don’t let the smile deceive you
Did I say I had figured it out Did I say it was perfect Perhaps I said it was find Yet deep inside
The eyes that you now look at Were swollen yesternight I wish you could see through my pain I wish I knew how I struggled
I was not okay
Hiding it was not easy
Maybe I thought I was okay
How the tears would balance in
Even when I was broken I said I was okay I felt like I was crumbling My face however showed something else
my eyes How they’d try to break out How I pushed them away Just to wait till dark When I’d wet my pillow At times it was unbearable I thought of telling you But then no Just like the rest you would judge Like all of them you would not understand
Sometimes imperfection turns out to be the best thing
What or who is a drone? Brian Mwenda explores the world of drones and brings you what he got for
THE DRONE TECHNOLOGY (An aircraft invention that has brought the magical aerial experience next to humans: drone.) Drones trace their history back in 2000. The technology was primarily invented for military use. The CIA in 2000 flew unarmed drones over Afghanistan until the air war against the Taliban late 2001. On February 4th2002, the CIA flew an unmanned Predator drone in a targeted killing of Osama bin Laden, or at least someone in the CIA had thought so. Notably this year, the Kenyan government pumped Ksh1Billion shillings to buy state of art drones from US to intensify the fight against terrorist in real time alongside other major crime scenes inside Kenyan borders. However, the sharp edge technology has found its way into human life and since becoming part of human. With more than 1000 business leaders betting heavily on drones, industries across the board are taking a closer look at drone technology.Â
Did you know that's East Africa leads the world in drone delivery?? Now you know! Case studies of Tanzania and Rwanda shows the drones have found a place to call home in East Africa. Zipline, Rinaudo's company operating the world's only drone delivery system at a national scale; sends out blood, medicine, food, water and any other survival items to remote and difficult to access areas. To place an order, a health care worker simply sends a text via WhatsApp. Zipline’s local operators load a drone at the distribution center and launch it into the air, whereupon it autonomously navigates the route to its destination and typically arrives within 30 minutes. To save on battery life and prevent wearand-tear, the drone doesn’t land; instead it drops its cargo by parachute and then heads back to the distribution center.
DRONES IN EAST AFRICA
The technology has proven reliable with Zipline operating 500 flights each day on all weather. Rwanda has been optimistic with the technology; making key policies that have created an enabling environment for the drone delivery program. This is significant in creating and managing a strong delivery system. Tanzania is yet another place to watch come 2018 following the opening of 4 drone distribution centers with over 100 drones and a minimum of 2000 flights a day.
MINING Commercial mining is an industry plagued by steep costs. Before drones, helicopters were used in operations supervision and site exploration. With drones; exploration, stoke pile, monitoring and equipment tracking has been done better in real time. It has also proven significant in improving complex operation from mine mapping to search and rescue. TRANSPORT AND COMMUNICATION The UAVs have helped my mapping fine-scale damage that natural disaster do to bridges, roads and highway to prevent costly, dangerous infrastructure collapse. Railway companies and Union pacific used drones for regular inspection of tracks, bridges radio towers and power lines. ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY We canâ€™t exhaust the number of benefits these sharp edge technology has brought to the industry. By camera mounting, the world has enjoyed a better aerial view of scenes, most notably; the art industry. Some of the movies shot using drones are Spectre (2015), Jurassic world (2015), Chappies, Captian America Civil War and The Expendables 3 which had 30 scenes shot by drones amongst others movies. In conclusion, drones have proven a trustworthy messenger and much more is to expect come 2018. Catch our next article on Tech Central as we take a look at major technology aspects in the market.Â
New Year's Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change. Sarah Ban Breathnach

On one of the final editions of Political Equations David Mwenda delves into campaign promises made by the Uhuru Campaign
WITH DAVID MWENDA
What I want from Uhuru So campaigns are over, things are back to normal we are looking forward to a new year new things. It is going to be one tough year for Uhuru as he tries to make his last term as president count. There is a lot to consider. Everyone is looking forward to his new cabinet picks and what he plans for the nations and whether his manifesto will be achieved in the long run. So here are a few things that I want from him: Jobs to be created Have you taken a look at unemployment numbers? They are by far one of the worst in our time. In a recent poll done by TIFA unemployment has been put at 59.1%. This means that about most of the population is out there looking for a job. In its manifesto Jubilee wants to improve this numbers by creating 1.3 million jobs in the next 5 years. The government should put in place a way so that people can benefit from this program in the long run. Apprenticeship program The apprenticeship program is one that needs to be rolled out as soon as possible. There is urgent need to make sure that people are experienced as companies are looking for experience nowadays. This program will help the youth as you benefit from a job and close to one year experience under the program.

FASHION AND STYLE
Its January so its back to the office what do you need to wear also fashion background from Ajuma How to take advantage of the city's traffic, and enjoy your ride.
So it’s back to the office. I mean January is here and who does not want to look good when you are coming back from the holidays. Here are a few things to make you a bit styled up for your meetings and at the office (and I forgot some advice)
REISE | PAGE 4
Make sure it fits This is for the guys. Always make sure that your suit is fitting. Don’t go for the oversize suit which will make you look like a clown. Be sure to make arrangements with your tailor to make sure he does perfect job in order for you to look stylish around the office. Black is not the only official color When you mention the word official wear guys are always thinking it has to be black it has to be black. Think about it doesn’t have to be wear something that you find comfortable and with but portrays you as stylish and serious for any office. This is especially to the ladies you do not have to look nice.
Black is not the only official color: When you mention the word official wear guys are always thinking it has to be black it has to be black. Think about it doesnâ€™t have to be wear something that you find comfortable and with but portrays you as stylish and serious for any office. This is especially to the ladies you do not have to look nice.
Understand your office and what is deemed appropriate Try to be appropriate. Some offices really have a dress code. Try and abide by them if itâ€™s the hair style, shoes etc. Try and look impressive even with that dress code, however do not go around because HR will come after you (it wonâ€™t be giving you a raise trust me). Always have back up On a light note always have some back up. It is important to have that extra suit or dress hidden up in your office or car. This is in case you have an urgent emergency and you have to have to respond to it quickly. Do not be a sticker for what goes goes. Choose to always be proactive not reactive.
HANDBAGS AND BRIEFCASES MAKE A STATEMENT!! LET THEM MAKE THE PERFECT STATEMENT ACCESSORIES MATTER!!!! ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ACCESSORIES IS YOUR HAND BAG OR BRIEFCASE. CHOOSE A BAG THAT COMPLIMENTS YOU AND MAKE A PERFECT STATEMENT. DO NOT GO FOR THE NORMAL BAGS THAT MAKE YOU LOOK MEDIOCRE GO FOR SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE WANTS TO LOOK AT AND ASK WHOSE THAT GUY OR WHOâ€™S THAT LADY? I THINK YOU KNOW WHERE I AM GOING AT RIGHT? CHOOSE THE RIGHT BAG.
This is what I think about fashion By Ajuma Fashion is a popular style or practice in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, hairstyle and body. It is dynamic in nature as it changes with trends coming out every now and then. Everyone in one way or another is affected by the fashion syndrome. People want to be fashionable. Gone are the days when simplicity was adored. The craze of fashion is great among young people especially university students. Everyone or at least most students want to be up to date with the current fashion trends. They go to great extents just to achieve that fashionable look and style. You’ll meet them in all sorts of ware, shoes, accessories, makeup and hairstyles just to create that stamen look. Being a fashion fanatic isn’t bad as long as you don’t overdo it. We all know too much of anything is dangerous. Nobody wants to look like a clown because of his or her obsession with fashion. It’s good to keep up with trends as long as you do you. Do what is suitable for you, what accentuates with you, what makes you comfortable and gives you the confidence to face your day. Never try to pull off a fashion statement which you aren’t comfortable in just to prove appoint to others because it will mess you up.
As students, we all have that one icon you aspire to be like. Be it the Kardashians, Rihanna, Chanel or any other celebrity stylist which is okay because they inspire you. The main important thing is to always remember to do you. In the words of FenaS Gitu, “keep it classy, keep it real”. There is nothing as beautiful as a man or woman who’s comfortable in his own skin. The key thing is accepting who you are and know you are beautifully and wonderfully made as the scriptures put it. Ladies makeup is usually part of our wardrobe it should not be used to camouflage who we really are but rather to enhance it. Just minimal is enough, be careful with the kind of products you use because not all of them are skin friendly. Another reminder is to remove make up before going to bed. When it comes to clothes, dress your type. Just because it looks good on me doesn’t necessarily mean it looks good on you. We are all blessed with different body types and skin tones. So, dress according to your body type and accentuate your best features. A nice pair of shoes will also do you good. As Coco Chanel puts it, “before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” Finally, let us not make fashion lead us into forgetting the core business that brought you to school or work. We all come to school to study or go to work to perform our best and that should always be our main objective. Beauty and Brains go together
