1. Business: Bird Flu in Kenya?
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Bird Flu has claimed more than 100 lives, according to the World Health Organisation, and has spread to birds in at least five countries in Africa -- Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Egypt, Niger and Nigeria -- which is considered especially vulnerable to human outbreaks.

The Rift Valley countries of Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania in East Africa are considered particularly at risk from bird flu as they host millions of migratory fowl. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =


Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda aim to become one sovereign state with a three-year revolving presidency by 2011 and an elected president of East Africa by 2013, says Tanzanian president Jakaya Kikwete. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

3. Business: Mâori Television in New Zealand
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Mâori Television was launched in March 2004 with a mandate to promote and revitalise the Mâori language and culture to a wider audience. Proving to be popular television for its New Zealand audience, a second studio for daily news production was commissioned in early April 2006 further adding to its indigenous broadcasting capabilities.

4. Business: What Can We Do To Help The Poor?
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

African ministers responsible for housing and urban development have been discussing a 10-point action plan at a United Nations-backed conference in Kenya, aimed at reducing urban poverty, defusing potential social unrest, and reversing the perception that governments are not doing enough on a continent where over 70 percent of city dwellers live in slums.

5. Education: A Victorian Anthology
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Back in the salad days of the British Empire, there was a Queen named Victoria. She defined an age in a way that few could do today, and certainly not for sixty years. While her writings are not represented in this fine online collection, it contains writings of many who flourished during her long reign. Bartleby.com recently placed the complete Victorian Anthology, 1837-1895 here, and visitors will be most delighted when they browse through its contents.

Edited by one Edmund Clarence Stedman, this magnum opus contains 1274 works by 343 authors. It should be noted that the entire work is comprised of poems, so those seeking lines from Lord Jim or Martin Chuzzlewit may need to look elsewhere. Of course, those who are temped by the quatrains of Yeats, Arnold, or Rossetti will want to linger awhile. Visit this site.

6. Education: How to Prevent Bird Flu
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Restoring tens of thousands of lost and degraded wetlands around the world could go a long way towards reducing the threat of bird flu pandemics by keeping disease-carrying wild birds away from infecting domestic poultry, according to a United Nations report released today.

7. Education & Health: Fight Against Malaria in Africa
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =


The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, has supported Malaria Clinical Trails Alliance (MCTA) with $17 million grants to fight malaria. MCTA is a new alliance to build African capacity for malaria drug and vaccine research, formed at Accra, Ghana. The international IND-EPTH Network, announced that the establishment of MCTA will help conduct clinical trials of new drugs and vaccines to fight malaria, a disease that kills 2,000 African children everyday.

8. Education & Health: Enjoy a Good Massage by a Masai Therapist
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

"This plant is Masai deodorant," chirps Cecelia, a confident 25-year-old from the Masai Mara game reserve in Kenya, as she clamps a bunch of leaves, freshly snapped from the leleshwa tree, under her arm. "It acts as a natural detergent with similar properties to tea tree oil, so we rub it under our arms to keep our sweat sweet," she says. To read this full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

9. Education: Victoria and Albert Museum in London
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Sitting down to spend a few minutes browsing The Victoria and Albert Museum's website is a bit like spending a few minutes at a lavishly-prepared banquet that contains masterful examples from the world's diverse culinary traditions: It cannot be done. Fortunately, the website can be visited many times, and given the impressive amount of fine content here, one probably shouldn't just make one visit. First-time visitors might want to take a look through the Collections area, which allows them the opportunity to view material from their architecture, ceramics, fashion, and design holdings.

Those interested in the behind the scene operations of the museum will want to slide on over to the Research & Conservation area. Here they can learn how heavy sculptures are moved throughout the museum and how the slightest and most delicate objects are conserved. The homepage also contains basic, yet essential, information on visiting any one of the three museums, along with offering specialized websites that profile current and upcoming exhibitions of note. Finally, if users are feeling a bit overwhelmed, there is always the welcoming blankness presented by a simple search feature in the upper-right hand corner of each and every page within the site. Visit this site.

10. Immigration: British Problems with Illegal Immigrants
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Criminal gangs trading in people and fake ID are 'out of control', senior police officers have told the BBC. The officer leading the fight against organised immigration crime in London said people-trafficking now amounted to a 21st Century slave trade. Det. Ch. Insp. Bob Murrill said despite successful prosecutions, passport factories now operated under franchise. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

11. Immigration: Illegals now pouring into the Canary Islands
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Illegal immigration is now becoming a worldwide problem. Boatloads of destitute Africans on rickety fishing boats are turning up on the beaches of these Spanish resort islands nearly every day, gaunt and exhausted from days at sea. They are the lucky ones. Hundreds of others have died attempting the ocean journey, and authorities are worried about a looming crisis as summer approaches and more people make the trip.

12. Immigration: Legal Immigrants pouring into Ireland
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Ireland has had an influx of some 160,000 overseas immigrants over the past 21 months. The majority of these migrants have sought and received Personal Public Service numbers, and are making a visible contribution to the economy. The majority of immigrants are young adults, so from the 160,000 that have entered Ireland to work, foreign labour makes up approximately 8% of the workforce. This figure is without comparison any where in Europe. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

13. Immigration: Some people will try anything to get into USA
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Washington (AP) -- The Supreme Court on Monday thwarted a white South African woman's efforts to seek asylum in the United States on her claim that her family was persecuted by blacks who worked for her allegedly racist father-in-law. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

14. Immigration: South Africa Skills Shortage
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The Delamere Group has received growing complaints from international business firms about South Africa's immigration rules. They say bureaucracy and red tape are making it harder for them to do business in the country because it's difficult to find workers with the skills and experience they need.

15. Travel: On Safari in Kenya with John Walsh
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Safaris, thankfully, are no longer the glorified turkey-shoots they once were, but John Walsh finds plenty of blood and gore in Kenya as he goes out and about with the Masai. To read this full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

16. Travel & Education: Contra Opinion of "Out of Africa"
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

We received this opinion from one of our readers this past week. "One of the most dangerous books ever to come out of Africa is, without doubt, this deceptively objective tale of Karen Blixen's life in Kenya at the beginning of Africa's century of colonisation."


Millions of Europeans and Americans who read Out of Africa in the last century had Blixen's image of native Africans permanently etched on their minds. To them, all African became savages for whom it was the sacred duty of the white man to come and "civilise", and to exploit without scruple. To read this full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

Editor's Note: We would like to hear your opinion on this report, so we request you submit your email direct to editor@delamere-international.com

17. Travel: Your Next Vacation- Masai Mara Game Reserve
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

What strikes me most about the Masai Mara, a massive game reserve in Kenya, is the amount of wildlife still roaming its grassy plains. Hundreds, sometimes thousands, of animals dot the landscape - from elephants and lions, to cheetahs, giraffes and the always cranky wildebeest.

The Delamere Group will be arranging for 3 free tickets at our next management meeting. Please contact us for more details. To read more about this incredibly beautiful place, visit our NEWS DESK link.
