Meet Mayor Gulaid – a man of science and medicine

August 9, 2019

Mayor of Ealing 2019-20 Councillor Abdullah Gulaid

In May, Councillor Dr Abdullah Gulaid was formally elected as the new mayor of Ealing and has been enjoying the ‘very rewarding and challenging’ role.

As mayor, Councillor Gulaid undertakes all civic ceremonial duties within the borough. This will include attendance at key Remembrance Day services and greeting any members of the royal family visiting Ealing. He was a key figure at the Armed Forces Day event in Ealing in June (you can see some photos from this event in our gallery).

He is being assisted in his duties by Councillor Munir Ahmed, who was appointed deputy mayor.

From early skills to medical research

Councillor Gulaid came to the UK in 1969, when his early science skills were recognised by the government, which granted him a scholarship to complete A-levels and a degree course.

Having completed his A-levels at Bristol Polytechnic, he followed them up with a degree in chemistry at Queen Mary College, London University before completing his Masters degree at Kings College, London University in analytical chemistry. He went on to complete a PhD in biochemical pharmacology at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School.

Unsurprisingly, Councillor Gulaid’s professional career has centred on medical advances and he has worked across the world – Europe, USA and Japan – on clinical trials. He was the co-founder of the Sickle Cell Anaemia Research Foundation and a trustee for the Black African and Caribbean Mental Health Consortium and Richard Darlington Foundation. So, no surprise that he was nominated and awarded to be a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and Chartered Chemist in 2001.

‘So many opportunities to make a positive impact’

He has been a Labour councillor for Acton Central ward since 2010 and a member of several committees including planning, health and adult social services and corporate parent and has been the Ealing mental health champion since 2017. He was also a governor at local schools Southfield Primary, West Acton Primary, Derwentwater Primary and Acton High.

Councillor Gulaid said: “Being the mayor means having a duty to do everything you can for local communities in Ealing. I am originally from Somalia and came to the UK in 1969 and even in that time I was interested in politics so it’s obviously an honour to be mayor. There are so many opportunities to make a positive impact.

“It is very rewarding and challenging to be mayor. It is an important link between the council and the community hopefully I can strengthen that wherever possible. You listen local people and hope you can work to help them wherever you can.”

Descendants – the mayoral charity

Councillor Gulaid has chosen Acton-based Descendants as his charity for the year. Since it was set up in 1993 it has worked to create an environment to help young people (primarily but not exclusively) of African and Caribbean descent to learn together, build their confidence and thrive.

With the aid of 20 volunteers, Descendants provides weekly educational and inspirational classes, holiday projects and annual achievement awards to showcase good work. It also provides advice and support sessions for parents and encourages volunteers’ participation in training schemes.

Descendants celebrated its 25th year last year – and this milestone was followed this year by the honour of receiving a 2019 Queens Award for Voluntary Service – which is the highest award given to volunteer groups across the UK to recognise exceptional service within their communities.

Councillor Gulaid said: “Part of my work over the year involves helping to promote the work of my chosen charity Descendants, which helps support young people in west London. I think it’s vital we ensure that young people have the care and support they need in what can be a challenging age for anyone.”

Just How Bad Is Vaping For Your Health?

Cory Stieg

© Getty The year is 2019, and it’s suddenly cool to carry around a device that looks like a USB flash drive and heats up a cocktail of nicotine and chemicals for you to inhale. Celebs vape, vape trick videos abound on TikTok, and you can order decorative skins to help customize your own personal JUUL.

As vaping culture grows, experts worry that people aren’t taking the health effects of e-cigarette use seriously. “There’s a great deal of misinformation about the whole vaping phenomenon,” says Enid Neptune, MD, associate professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and co-chair of the ATS Tobacco Action Committee. One of the main issues being that many people compare vaping to smoking conventional cigarettes, when really they are two separate practices that have uniquely different consequences, she adds. So, here Dr. Neptune answers a few questions you might have about how vaping affects your health:

© GettyWhat is vaping?

“Vaping” is the slang phrase that’s used to describe using an electronic cigarette or a battery-powered heated device to inhale an aerosolized solution, Dr. Neptune says. This liquid solution typically contains nicotine, flavoring, chemical additives, and propylene glycol. “So, when person says that vaping is like inhaling water vapor, that’s distinctly untrue,” she says.

© GettyHow does vaping affect your health?

E-cigarettes are considered newish devices, so researchers still don’t know the full scope of what the long-term health effects of vaping will be. That said, they’re definitely not harmless, and research has shown that the chemicals in e-cigarette fluid can be incredibly damaging to your health beyond just the nicotine, Dr. Neptune says.

Does vaping affect your lungs?

Studies suggest that there’s a much higher incidence of cough and worsening of asthma symptoms in people who vape versus people who don’t, Dr. Neptune says. Chemicals in vaping fluid also can cause acute lung injuries and contribute to lung and cardiovascular disease down the line, according to the American Lung Association.

© GettyCan you get cancer from vaping?

Again, it’s too soon to say, but many of the common vaping solutions contain measurable levels of well-known carcinogens, such as formaldehyde and acrolein, Dr. Neptune says. “Given that, there is at least a theoretical risk of developing malignancy with chronic and frequent exposure,” she says. What’s of “terrific concern” among researchers, though, is the fact that young people who start off vaping have a much greater chance of transitioning to conventional cigarettes, which we know cause cancer, she adds.

© GettyIs vaping worse than smoking?

Right off the bat, smoking is far more toxic than vaping, Dr. Neptune says. “Smoking generates thousands of chemicals that can have adverse effects on the lung and the body,” she says. But the answer to this question is far more nuanced than that, because we know more about smoking conventional cigarettes, Dr. Neptune says. “We know that it’s more toxic, but that’s not really the issue,” she says. What is an issue? “Vaping has developed a far more appealing habit and practice among children and young adults, so it represents its own public health menace,” she adds.

Typical picnic basket contains ‘dangerous’ levels of salt, health campaigners warn

The Independent

© Provided by Independent Digital News & Media Limited A typical picnic basket of savoury snacks contains harmful amounts of salt and saturated fat, health campaigners state.

Action on Salt (AOS) – a group of specialists that campaign to raise awareness of the effects of salt on health – is warning that one in four picnic foods are “dangerously high” in salt and almost one in three have no colour-coded front-of-pack labelling, making it difficult for consumers to make healthy choices.

© Getty As a result, AOS is calling for immediate, compulsory nutritional labelling on all savoury snacks.

The warning follows the findings of a survey conducted by researchers at Queen Mary University of London, which analysed 555 savoury picnic finger foods available from retailers.

Among the worst offenders in the foods analysed by the group were Aldi’s specially selected hand-stuffed Halkidiki Olives, with 5g of salt per 100g – double the salt concentration of seawater – and Ginsters Cornish pasties, with 2.99g a portion, which is the equivalent to seven portions of salted peanuts.

a man standing in front of a window: Who knew that salt could even impact your brain function? According to a 2011 Canadian study on 1,200 more sedentary adults, those with high-sodium diets had a higher chance of cognitive decline than those with less salt in their diets. As you age it is important to keep track of how much salt you consume, and make changes if necessary.

Similarly, Aldi’s Eat & Go Sausages & Ketchup were found to contain 2.2g per portion, as much salt as four and a half bags of ready salted crisps, while Fry’s Spicy Three Bean Pasty contained 1.8g per portion, the same amount as a McDonald’s hamburger and fries.

The study also showed that the saltiest sausage roll was Fry’s Sausage Roll, a vegan brand with 1.8g salt per 100g.

Scotch eggs, which has an average salt content of 0.76g per 100g, and quiche, which has an average salt content of 0.54g per 100g, were the lowest salt categories.

© Getty The researchers warned that almost half of the products surveyed were also “worryingly high” in saturated fat.

Morrisons Cheese & Onion Slices (330g) were found to contain 17.7g of saturated fat per portion, almost meeting a woman’s recommended daily limit of 20g.

Similarly, Asda’s Extra Special Maple Cured Smoked Bacon Quiche Lorraine with Butter Enriched Shortcrust Pastry (410g) contained 11g of saturated fat per 100g or 14g per portion, which is almost as much as in five McDonald’s hamburgers.

Graham MacGregor, professor of cardiovascular medicine at Queen Mary University of London and chairman of AOS, said that the Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England are responsible for Britons continuing to eat more salt than recommended.

“Reducing salt is one of the most cost-effective measures to protect health,” MacGregor said.

© Getty “The time has come for the Secretary of State for Health to resuscitate the UK’s salt reduction programme, helping us to, once again, be world leading rather than trailing behind the rest of the world. The public’s health has suffered long enough.”

According to the NHS, adults should eat no more than 6g of salt a day – the equivalent to one teaspoon.

It adds that eating too much salt can cause high blood pressure which, if left untreatd, can increase a person’s risk of developing a number of serious long-term health conditions, such as coronary heart disease and kidney disease.

AOS states that a reduction in salt intake could reduce blood pressure and prevent approximately 2.6m. stroke and heart attack deaths each year worldwide.

“Eating yogurt is an awesome way to add good bacteria to your gut,” Schiff says. But she notes too many yogurts have sugar as a top ingredient, and suggests shoppers buy plain yogurt instead, adding in such mix-ins as fruit, nuts, low-sugar granola or chia seeds. She also recommends Greek yogurt, a higher-protein kind of yogurt. Non-dairy diners can try almond and soy yogurt.

A group of Muslims cycled from England to Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj It took them 6,500 km to reach Medina.

Mariam Nabbout

By Mariam Nabbout

The arrival of a group of British Muslims to perform Hajj (Islamic pilgrimage) in Saudi Arabia’s Medina turned heads this week … because they cycled all the way from England to Saudi Arabia. 

The men went on a “Tour de Hajj” – a play on the annual bicycle race “Tour de France” – to convey a better picture of Islam “as a religion of peace and tolerance among the countries they passed through.” The cyclers also hoped to use their journey to raise money for charity. 

Upon their arrival in the kingdom after 6,500 km, Saudi authorities gave them a warm welcome as they were greeted by the chairman of the Society of Culture and Arts in Medina, Mishaal Al-Touhami.

The “Tour de Hajj” group were also well-received by locals and cycling enthusiasts who threw them a traditional welcome. Of course, as Arab hospitality could never be complete without something to eat and drink, the pilgrims were served Arabian coffee, dates, and Zamzam water.

In an interview with Al Arabiya, the group’s captain, Taher Hasan Akhtar – a seasoned cyclist who has previously led trips to Mecca for Hajj – shared details of the epic journey. 

“The trip was amazing, we came through 17 countries. It’s spiritual, beautiful journey,” he said

The British pilgrims were impressed by the warm welcome and lauded the facilities that made it easier for them to arrive for Hajj this year. 

According to Saudi Gazette, the men began their journey by visiting Medina to pay homage to Prophet Muhammad, then proceeded to Mecca to visit its holy sites and complete their pilgrimage rites.

(MENAFN – SomTribune) Saudi Arabia will soon start issuing visas on Somaliland passports.

This is a departure from the Kingdom’s previously long held position of issuing visas on Somali passports holders and not Somaliland passports.

The issuance of the visas to Somalilanders starts with those who will be heading for pilgrimage in Mecca this month.

Already, the president of Somaliland Muse Bihi is in Saudi Arabia on an official invitation from King Salman Bin Abdul Aziz. The two leaders are expected to hold talks on how the two countries can cement their trade relations.

Saudi Arabia will also recognize Somaliland diplomatic passports.

There are reports that the Saudi King sent the Somaliland delegation a private, royal jet to collect them from Hargeisa’s Egal International Airport direct to the Kingdom.

This is the first time a Somaliland president is receiving official invitation from Saudi leadership.

This comes just two months after the Somaliland president met Saudi envoy Amb Mohamed Khayat in Hargeisa where the two discussed how Saudi Arabia would assist Somaliland in the areas of the economy, investment, lifting the ban on Somaliland livestock export to KSA and ways to enhance the bilateral ties between two countries.

President Bihi has been courting Saudi for some time and expressing his country’s close ties with the kingdom.

‘Firstly we are neighbors of Saudi Arabia. Second, our exports go to Saudi Arabia, third in Saudi Arabia there are two holy mosques that we have to visit, so consider all these reasons for us to be aligned with Saudi Arabia,’Bihi said in a previous interview.

Somaliland exports livestock to the Middle East, notably Saudi Arabia with the highest exports going during the Hajj period.

U.S. Africa Policy Cannot Afford to Ignore Somaliland

Here’s the problem: Somaliland’s ability to stand up to radicals and Al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists may not be endless.by Michael Rubin

HARGEISSA, SOMALILAND—“Great nations do not fight endless wars,” President Donald Trump declared in his State of the Union address, even as he redoubled his commitment to “focus on counterterrorism.” While many commentators describe Afghanistan—the war against which Trump railed—as America’s longest war, the battle against terrorists and warlords in Somalia has now run even longer.

Alas, even as Trump talks about scaling back the U.S. military footprint abroad, his willingness to follow the State Department’s lead in Somalia threatens to embolden radicalism and revive piracy in the Horn of Africa. At issue is Somalia, where the State Department’s embrace of false unities and antipathy toward change has led it to double down on its support for Somalia’s symbolic government in Mogadishu.

At first glance, Trump’s cynicism looks warranted. After years of civil war, Somalia has a provisional constitution and a government. Elders have appointed a parliament, which in turn has elected a president. But the federal government’s control is largely illusionary. Most diplomats and non-governmental organizations are sequestered inside the international airport, which makes Baghdad’s old Green Zone look permissive. The African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), encompassing troops from five African countries and police from an additional three, provides basic security. The president holds little sway outside his palace and a few square blocks around his palace, while Al-Shabaab, a terrorist group affiliated with Al Qaeda, continues to strike in the city and across the country

Fictions are expensive. The United Nations and aid organizations are seeking upwards of $1 billion in aid this year just to provide immediate relief, and that figure is even greater when the price tag for AMISOM is factored in. Much of the aid, however, never reaches Somalis; Transparency International now ranks Somalia as the world’s most corrupt country. Rather than help Somalis, donations to Mogadishu often fuel factional fighting and drive Somalis into the arms of radicals and yet, despite his promise to turn Washington’s old ways on their head, the Trump administration policy in effect remains to throw good money after bad. In effect, Somalia has joined Pakistan and Egypt in an extortion racket whereby it demands endless aid to fight radicalism, but never defeats it for fear of losing an annual windfall which elites siphon for personal interests.

Not all of Somalia, however, embraces this cycle. As Somalia descended into civil war in 1991, Somaliland, ground zero for Somali dictator Siad Barre’s reign of terror, declared itself independent. Its claim was solid: during the colonial era, it was a British protectorate, distinct from the rest of Somalia, with internationally-recognized borders. All five UN Security Council members recognized its 1960 independence. To Somalilanders, its subsequent union with Somalia was voluntary, as was its exit against the backdrop of Somalia’s descent into chaos. Residents of the region also point out that the State Department’s traditional antipathy toward border changes rings hollow given Washington’s, the African Union’s and the broader international community’s recognition of South Sudan and Eritrea. True, neither of these countries is a success, but Somaliland already promises to be. Today, Somaliland includes twenty-eight percent of Somalia’s area and one-third of its population. Unlike Somalia proper, Somaliland has denied Al-Shabaab access to its territory. Hargeisa, its capital, is among the safest cities in Africa. Somaliland has contested elections, secured via biometric iris scans, and has had five peaceful transfers of power amongst rival parties. While Somaliland has its own currency, its economy is increasingly cashless: organic innovation and permeation of cell phones has allowed even its rural citizens simply to trade digital money by cell phone. Americans might still think “Black Hawk Down” when they think of Somalia, but Somaliland has become more like Sweden and Estonia in its e-practices.

In effect, Somaliland does everything right. So why does the United States ignore it? In the era of budget cutbacks, the State Department refuses to even put an office in Hargeisa akin to what it has in Iraqi Kurdistan or Taiwan. The Pentagon, for its part, has no regular liaison with their Somalilander counterparts, even though both counterterrorism missions and the war in Yemen enhance Somaliland’s strategic importance.

Here’s the problem: Somaliland’s ability to stand up to radicals and Al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists may not be endless. Somaliland spends one-third its budget on security, but Somalia refuses to provide it with any international funds channeled through Mogadishu. The situation is now so dire that Somaliland’s army and coast guard recruits must purchase their own guns in order to conduct the patrols which stabilize its 460-mile coastline, prevent weapons smuggling from Yemen, and deny Al-Shabaab access to its vast rural areas. While the UN has eased its arms embargo on Somalia in order to allow AMISOM to operate and to supply Somali government forces (who more often than not sell their weapons to the radicals for some quick cash), it continues to enforce an arms embargo on Somaliland that is an artifact of the situation in Somalia three decades ago.

Trump and National Security Advisor John Bolton are right to question foreign aid. Sponsoring parades in Bulgaria or art workshops in Central America have limited utility. But, every million dollars invested in Somaliland’s security could offset defense needs with a price tag several orders of magnitude higher. Somaliland seeks not tanks and modern fighter jets, but simply small arms and more patrol boats. The region’s willingness to invest more than fifteen-times proportionately what America’s NATO allies do in defense shows it is serious and not simply seeking subsidy for what it could otherwise achieve on its own. Somalia’s government might complain, but Washington need not kneel to Mogadishu. If Trump truly wants to end endless wars and American engagements abroad, perhaps it is time to embrace rather than ignore allies, bolster democracies and recognize that even at the height of its greatness, America has never truly gone it alone.

USAID/DJIBOUTI Workforce Development Project: Graduation Ceremonies for 475 Trained Djiboutian Youth

DJIBOUTI CITY, Djibouti, August 8, 2019/APO Group/ — July 24th was an important day for 155 youth in Gabode who successfully completed 18 days of Work Ready Now! training under the USAID Workforce Development Program (WFD), implemented by Education Development Center (EDC) in collaboration with the National Agency for Employment, Training and Job Placement (ANEFIP).  A total of 475 youth completed WRN training across all of Djibouti’s regions in July.  A total of 1,624 youth have completed the training to date.  ANEFIP Director General, USAID representatives and EDC’s Chief of Party were pleased to present the graduates with their training certificates.

During the closing ceremony, the Director General of ANEFIP, Mr. Mahamoud Omar Guelleh, encouraged jobseekers to seize any opportunity to gain work experience, no matter how small.  He also advised them to register in ANEFIP offices.  The WFD Head of Project, Mrs. Laura Dillon-Binkley, encouraged them to continue moving forward and to take initiative on their own to search for a job.  A representative of USAID, Mr. Moussa Abdillahi, congratulated them for having completed the training and wished them good luck.

A total of 1,624 youth have completed the training to date

Through Work Ready Now! Training, participants gain self-confidence and preparation for the world of work.  One participant at the Gabode training center said that, “to go into the field, one needs to be armed.  This training is my weapon.”  A participant from Tadjourah shared that, “before the training, I blamed everyone else for my situation.  Now I am convinced that I am the master of my own future.”

Work Ready Now! is a competency-based training program consisting of 7 modules delivered over 76 hours.  The first four modules focus on foundational skills that allow participants to better know and manage themselves, as well as to improve their skills in critical analysis, leadership, team work, communication, taking initiative, and resolving problems.  The three remaining modules help youth understand risks in the workplace, the rights and responsibilities of employees and employers, as well as how to plan and manage their personal finances.

In 2018, 72 participants out of 359 interviewed stated that they had found a job within the months following the training.  In collaboration with ANEFIP, as well as the Chamber of Commerce of Djibouti and the National Ministry of Education and Vocational Training, WFD will ensure there is a better link between job opportunities and qualified jobseekers to better facilitate durable job opportunities for youth.  To participate, unemployed youth can register at the nearest ANEFIP office.

The United States Mission to Djibouti, which includes USAID/Djibouti, also promotes youth employment through English language training and vocational skills training for both refugee and Djiboutian youth.

Crowdfund London: coming to a street near you?

Imagine a space where you can grow food, watch films, eat well, learn carpentry, experience camping and make new friends. Just for starters. A place that inspires and welcomes. An urban oasis. And all down the road from where you live.

Step forward Tottenham Café Connect. Formerly an unloved bowling club, now a community hub serving a diverse community and – crucially – a safe space for young people to hang out, learn new skills and not get bored – thanks to £37,000 funding from Crowdfund London.

Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, recently visited the café in Haringey to launch his £1 million Crowdfund London 2019 Programme. He described the café as an inspirational example of how crowdfunding works in relation to civic projects and called on the capital’s businesses, foundations and philanthropists to rally behind the programme.

“We want to harness that entrepreneurial spirit and apply it to the challenges and opportunities faced by communities across the capital. So I urge anyone with a creative project to consider applying to this year’s crowdfunding programme.”

Get involved

For the uninitiated, Crowdfund London uses crowdfunding technology to raise funding for community-led projects across the city. Civic crowdfunding platform Spacehive is helping deliver the programme and entrants have until May 1 to apply for up to £50,000 in funding.

You don’t have to have done anything like this before to get involved.

If you have an idea – or the seed of an idea – about how to make your neighbourhood better, you’ll be pushing at an open door. The whole point of Crowdfund London is to trigger the creativity, harness the experience and build the confidence of local people.

It’s called people-powered regeneration and it’s supported by London Economic Action Partnership (LEAP).

In the words of Alexandra Depledge MBE, LEAP member: “Real magic happens when communities come together. Local people know best what’s best for their communities and Crowdfund London is all about getting these voices heard.”

Successful projects so far have included a self-build community space in Lewisham, a library of things in Crystal Palace, a light installation celebrating local culture in Southall and a market run by and for teenagers in Barnet.

Somaliland: Visit of United Nations Special Envoy to Discuss Governance and Cooperation

Jul 29, 2019

Somaliland President Muse Bihi Abid has received United Nations Special Envoy James Swan to discuss Somaliland’s democratic progress, UN-funded programs, as well as good governance and security in the Horn of Africa. The visit comes as Somaliland has stepped up its efforts in recent months to establish bilateral ties with other countries in West Africa and the Middle East. 

Below is an article published by Somaliland Sun:

The President of the Somaliland Republic, Muse Bihi Abdi, received the United Nations Special Envoy, Ambassador James Swan in Hargeisa today [28 July 2019].

The President met with the new envoy, who recently took up his post in the region.

The delegation from the United Nations led by Ambassador Swan is in Somaliland to discuss areas of mutual interest, including democratic progress, UN funded programs, good governance and the general security in the Horn of Africa.

The new UN envoy, James Swan, is no stranger to Somaliland, having visited the country on numerous occasions whilst serving as the United Sates ambassador during the administration of former president, Ahmed Mohamed Mohamud “Siilaanyo”.

The UN delegation is expected to meet with senior government officials, members of the Houses of Elders and Representatives, as well as non-governmental, civil and business leaders.

The visit comes at the time when the Somaliland political parties reached a consensus, with the support of the EU ambassador, Nicolas Berlanga Martinez, on the issues pertaining to the forthcoming parliamentary and local elections.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has arrived in Derbyshire to meet residents evacuated from Whaley Bridge as work continues to save the town’s damaged dam.

Water levels at the Toddbrook Reservoir have been reduced by half a metre but engineers remain “very concerned” about the integrity of the damaged 180-year-old structure, which contains around 1.3 million tonnes of water. 

Hundreds of people have been evacuated from Whaley Bridge over fears it could rupture and flood their homes. 

On Friday night Mr Johnson arrived in the area by helicopter to talk to residents, emergency service workers and assess the scene.

He met a number of families affected by the evacuation, telling them he had flown over the dam twice and it was “dodgy but stable”.

The Prime Minister said at the Chapel-en-le-Frith High School: “I flew over the dam and it looks pretty scary. I can see the problem.”

He assured residents “you will all be properly housed” if the dam burst.

Mr Johnson told a group of police officers: “Lets hope it doesn’t happen.”

He spent about half an hour talking to different groups of residents in the school gym and also police officers who helped with the evacuation.

Matthew and Lynn Lingard told him they had left pets – two cockateils and two rabbits – at their home.

The Prime Minister said: “That must be very worrying . Are you going to be able to go back and get them?”

Mr Lingard said they had been told probably not in the next 48 hours.

One resident told Mr Johnson: “We’re all like zombies.”

Stopping for selfies in the hall, he asked where everyone slept last night and when it became obvious they would have to leave.

He also looked shocked to be told some people had refused to leave. Flanked by senior police officers, he said: “We’ve got to sort that out.”

Mr Johnson told another group of residents: “The plan is to try and stop the dam breaking, clearly. And so a huge amount of effort is going into that.

“The Chinook’s been over putting in the aggregate and putting in the sandbags to try and stop it bursting. They’re pumping out huge amounts of water.”

Mr Johnson said he thought they had to get the level of the water down about eight metres, although there was some discussion with the surrounding officials about whether this was the exact figure.

He said: “They’ve got a long way to go. Whatever we do, we’ll make sure we rebuild it.”

Earlier in the day the Prime Minister tweeted: “My thoughts are with those who have had to leave their homes and all of those who are affected in #WhaleyBridge. First responders, engineers and RAF crews are working around the clock to fix the dam.”

He added: “I have just spoken to GOLD Commander and Deputy Chief Constable Rachel Swann to thank them for their ongoing efforts and I have instructed the Environment Secretary to chair a COBR meeting later today to coordinate the Government’s response.”

An RAF Chinook and around 150 firefighters using high-volume pumps appear to have partly stabilised the “unprecedented, fast-moving emergency situation” caused by heavy rain.

During a multi-agency press conference on Friday night, Assistant Chief Constable Kem Mehmet of Derbyshire Police said there was still “a substantial threat to life” if the dam wall fails. 

“We would ask residents to continue to heed police advice and stay away from Whaley Bridge,” he told the press conference on Friday. 

Due to concerns raised by residents over pets being left behind, he said officers had made the “difficult” decision to allow people to return to their homes temporarily. 

“We will be putting plans in place for residents to return to their home to pick up very vital things they need along with their animal welfare,” he told reporters. 

“This is very controlled, I must stress that, because this is still life at risk.” 

Numbers returning will be restricted to one person per household, he said, and it was “difficult” to say when people would be allowed to return permanently. 

Julie Sharman, chief operating officer for the Canal and River Trust, told the press conference the water level needs to be reduced by “several more” metres, with more pumps being installed on Friday evening.

“This is still a very critical situation,” she said.

“Until we are confident we can control that risk, then our position has to be to protect the public safety and limit access because we don’t want to put people at risk.”

The Chinook has been dropping one-ton sandbags on to the damaged area to bolster the structure. 

Improving weather and work on the inflows means the amount of water entering the reservoir has also reduced. 

Police have closed railway lines in the Whaley Bridge area over the risk of potential flooding.

The Prime Minister said “first responders, engineers and RAF crews are working around the clock to fix the dam” and he has ordered Environment Secretary Theresa Villiers to chair a meeting of the Cobra emergency committee to discuss the situation. 

Around 1,000 people were evacuated from the town but most found their own accommodation with family and friends, according to Derbyshire County Council. 

Carolyn Whittle, who lives in Meadowfield on the hillside in Whaley Bridge, said: “I’ve lived in Whaley for the best part of 45 years and I’ve never seen water flood over the dam like that, ever, nor thought that we could possibly be at risk in this way.” 

The Environment Agency issued a “danger to life” warning covering the River Goyt on Thursday, as the river could “rise rapidly” due to water rushing in from the reservoir.

Meanwhile, clean-up operations are under way across parts of the North West hit by heavy rain, including Poynton in Cheshire – where residents were evacuated on Wednesday night. 

The Environment Agency has 10 flood alerts, six flood warnings and one severe flood warning in place across England. 

Richard Parry, chief executive of the Canal and River Trust, said an annual inspection of the Toddbrook Reservoir by a senior engineer took place last November. 

The reservoir is on the north-west edge of the Peak District National Park and was built in 1831, according to experts, although the Environment Agency records it as being built in 1840-41. 

According to a 2011 Environment Agency report on national dam incidents, Toddbrook “has a history of leakage”.

Somaliland accuses Somalia and Italy of frustrating its recognition status

Somaliland President Musa Bihi waves a flag in Hargeisa on arrival from Guinea. Photo/COURTESY.

By CORRESPONDENT, NAIROBI, Jul 8 – Somaliland is now accusing Somalia and its former colonial master Italy of working together in frustrating her quest for international recognition.

Somaliland President Musa Bihi however, says the international community is warming up to welcoming Somaliland back to the world map by granting the country recognition.

Bihi, on arrival from Guinea where he was on official visit on invitation of Guinea president Alpha Conde said Italy had pile pressure on Guinea not to welcome him and his delegation from Somaliland.

“Italy was among nations that bore great pressure on Guinea heeding the hysteric calls of the Mogadishu administration. In fact, Italy exerted the greatest pressure but to no avail,” said Bihi.

We are now seeing Somalia working with some countries in the west to frustrate our quest for recognition and at the same time bully our international friends who are sympathetic to our course,” added the Somaliland leader when he arrived back in Hargeisa.

“But we are happy, the number of nations that have shown sympathy to our course and are willing to help us in the push for self-determination is increasing and soon we will be a recognized stated.”

The visit by Bihi to Guinea has elicited strong reaction from Somalia who announced it had cut all diplomatic ties with the west African state.

Somali foreign ministry in a statement said the government had cut all diplomatic ties after Guinea “accorded the protocol of head of state… to the leader of a separatist movement”

At the weekend, Guinea president responded by saying Somaliland had all rights to chart her destiny.

The events of last week have hardened Somalilanders’ attitudes towards Mogadishu’s based government. This has given rise to the opposition urging Somaliland to stop talking to the Mogadishu government.

Bihi, was met with a rapturous welcome on his return from Guinea Conakry. Crowds thronged the streets, most businesses were closed and people flocked to the capital Hargeisa from all corners of Somaliland.

Somaliland has waged a 29-year campaign to be recognized after it separated from Somalia in 1990 when the civil war stated. The two countries had merged after independence. Somaliland was a British protectorate while Somali was colonized by the Italians.

Somaliland invites French investors to explore country’s aviation industry

Dominic Omondi 26th Jun 2019

Somaliland Managing Director for Civil Aviation and Airports Authority Mohammed Rodol (right) shakes hands with French embassy commercial Attache Emmanuel Dragon as somaliland envoy to Kenya Bashe Omar (left).NAIROBI, KENYA:

 Somaliland has sent an invitation to France to explore investment opportunities in the country’s aviation industry.

Somaliland’s Managing director for Civil Aviation and Airports Authority Abdi Mohammed Rodol during a meeting with the French Commercial Attache Emmanuel Dragon at the France embassy in Nairobi said there are massive openings in aviation, which France can take advantage of.

“Ours is a young Nation seeking to welcome investors in different fields.

As the civil aviation director in Somaliland, I welcome investors from France to come and explore these opportunities,” Rodol said during the meeting that was also attended by the Somaliland representative to Kenya Bashe Omar. Meanwhile, Kenya is mulling on introducing direct flights to Somaliland capita Hargeisa.

With the frosty relationship on between Kenya and Somalia, which has seen the former close its borders and bar flights to and from Mogadishu, Kenya Airways, is considering Hargeisa as its next destination in the Horn of Africa.

This will be a massive boost for trade between Kenya and the internationally unrecognized Somaliland.

Over 15,000 Kenyans are living and working in Somaliland in the hospitality and education sectors.

Somaliland Managing Director of Civil Aviation and Airports Authority Abdi Mohammed Rodol is in Nairobi ostensibly to hold discussions with authorities in Kenya on the suitability of Hargeisa as a destination for Kenya Airways.

So far, Ethiopia Airlines provides two flights that fly directly to Somaliland between Addis Ababa and Hargeisa.

Fly Dubai also has flights that fly between Dubai and Hargeisa bringing business people to Somaliland from all over the world.

With plans to open a consulate in Hargeisa still on, the Kenya Airways sees this as an opportunity to introduce flights to the country which parted ways with Somalia after the start of the 1990 civil war.

Last month, the Foreign Affairs ministry directed Mr. Philip Mundia Githiora to establish the mission in the Somaliland capital.

Ethiopia and Djibouti have already set up diplomatic missions in Somaliland.

Somalia Flies Into Another Puerile Tantrum on ROS President Visit to Guinea

Date 7/3/2019 3:40:46 PM

(MENAFN – SomTribune) His Excellency the President of the Republic of Somaliland, Musa Behi Abdi, and a delegation he led is on a state visit to Guinea following an official invitation extended to him by President Alpha Conde’.

Somaliamedia reportedthat the Federal Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ahmed Awad, scheduled a press conference for 2 p.m., Wednesday, at which he was to fly into yet another harangue about some country – this time Guinea – violating ‘Somalia sovereignty’.

@MinisterMOFAbecomes apoplectic upon seeing howPresident@musebiihiof#SomalilandRepublic was most royally received in#Guinea . He called a press conference to protest only to cancel it the last minute. Instead, he’ll be writing another envious, silly letter to the AU.pic.twitter.com/mxLwjJVWnb

— Ibrahim J Abdi (@JIbrahimj)July 3, 2019

The meeting was called off at the last minute.

Similarly, a Tweet attributed to Villa Somalia President, Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed ‘Farmaajo’, which was hastily pulled out, circulated the social media.

“We are against all forms of diplomatic breaches witnessed in recent days, we call all brotherly countries to respect Somalia’s sovereignty and statehood,” the President, reportedly said in his Tweet before it was deleted.

To make matters worse, the Somalia government dispatched its ambassador to the EU to Senegal, sharing boundaries with Guinea where President Behi is to try to sway the Senegalese government to influence President Alpha Conde’ to lower state of reception for the visiting President.

I understood #Somaliahave send her EU representative to Senegal to protest somaliland’sengagement with Guinea.Can someone tell our neighbor. Africa is not EU.Guinea is not Senegal and somaliland is not Somalia. Just fix your own country and leave us alone.

— Ayan Mahamoud (@Gobannimo)July 3, 2019

Ms Ayan Mohamoud, Somaliland Head of Mission in the United Kingdom, was quick to point out how Somalia is misreading all the signs, continuing on a spree of embarrassing misjudgments.

President Behi’s visit to Guinea, obviously, is making other unexpected quarters jittery, too.

The Tweet below purports that President Behi is not only paying a state visit to Guinea to discuss bilateral relations and strengthen cooperation between the two East and West African countries but that there is a hidden agenda to the visit: to negotiate with Russia on a p[ossible Russian base in Somaliland.

The Tweet, as you can see below. fails to explain why that cannot be done at any place closer to home.

Image

Analysts, however, dismissed above Tweet as another Somalia-inspired hoax to open many fronts on a more successful, but not internationally recognized, 28-year-old Somaliland.

Somalia (see below) has made another feeble lunge at Kenya and Somaliland protesting to the use of the word ‘countries’ in a Tweet the Kenyan PS of Foreign Affairs, Macharia Kamau, used in relation to a meeting he had with ROS Foreign Affairs Minister, Yassin Haji Mohamoud.

Somaliland and Somalia had never been signed or passed by parliament. It is only a matter of courtesy that Somaliland is talking to Somalia on matters relating how their relationship would be shaped without the union – or reunion as Somalia is obsessed with.

Somaliland was an independent nation recognized by more than 35 countries before the SNL party, led by the late president Mohamed Haji Ibrahim Egal unconditionally handed it over to Mogadishu only five days after independence in the mistaken belief that he was pioneering a Greater Somalia union of 5 Somalias.

Somalia Takes Another Feeble Swipe at Somaliland, Latter Responds

Somalia Takes Another Feeble Swipe at Somaliland, Latter Responds

Date 7/1/2019 7:07:18 PM

  • (MENAFN – SomTribune) In yet another attempt to put the world hostage to a non-existent, irrevocable, binding union between the Republic of Somaliland and it, Somalia has made another blunder which only diverts more attention to the long-standing dispute between the two countries.

Following up on other diplomatic pressures some of which it had scores with a world that had not read its history as meticulously as it should, the weak federal ‘government’ in Mogadishu wrote another biting letter to Kenya.

To deliver the so-called protecst, it summoned Ambassador Lucas Tumbo to its ministry of foreign affairs to highlight displeasure on a recent Tweet by Permanent-Secretary Macaria Makau relating to a meeting he had had with the Foreign Minister of the Somaliland Republic, Professor Yassin Haji Mohamoud.

PS Kamau stated that the two sides ‘discussed issues of mutual interest between the two countries and ways of strengthening cooperation’.

Somalia espied an affront in the tweet and was quick on the trigger trying to teach PS Macharia how to use the English language.

According to its letter the use of ‘two countries’ in reference to Somaliland and Kenya.

A press statement, carrying the core of Somalia’s professed ‘affront’ ran as follows:

“On Sunday (June 30th), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation summoned the Ambassador of the Republic of Kenya to the Federal Republic of Somalia (?), Lt. General (Rtd) Lucas Tumbo, and handed him a protest note against an offensive tweet by the Principal Secretary of the Foreign Affairs of Kenya, Mr Macharia Kamau, on 27 June 2019.We consider this tweet an affront to Somalia’s sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity as well as harmful to the relationship between Kenya and Somalia.Somalia stands for good neighborliness, mutual respect and close cooperation with its neighbors, and expects the same from Kenya.END

The core message which the note carried was that the Tweet was an affront to sovereignty in which, obviously, Somalia believes the Republic of Somaliland was part of.

The Somaliland Foreign Ministry did not lose a moment but responded in kind – and in much better language, more diplomatic suavity.

“As a sovereign nation,” the FM response pointed out, “Somaliland’s right to engage in peaceful and foreign relations with all other nations is enshrined in international law, and all coercive and threatening measures to deny such cooperation between regional partners not only represent affronts to the principles and protocols on which the international order is based, but does little to promote the peace and security that the region requires”.

It went on to establish how important it was that government attended to their corners of the fence before they tried tearing down other people’s attainments, poking noses into every nook and corner except theirs.

“The Somaliland government thus implores its neighbour Somalia to focus its attention inward, towards meeting the many security, humanitarian and development challenges which the international community has invested so much, rather than involving itself in the affairs of other sovereign nations, including Kenya and Somaliland.

The delusion Villa Somalia harbours stems from an ill-fated, never signed, never approved by parliament union between the erstwhile British Protectorate of Somaliland and Italian Somalia on 1 July 1960. The two parts had nothing with one another until that date and, even then, their ‘marriage’ was not properly officiated.

This latest Somalia attempt follows close on the heels of other impotent protestations one of which tried to stop international partners dealing with Somaliland development as they saw fit.

Relations between the Republic of Kenya and the Republic of Somaliland have visibly strengthened since Somalia took a maritime boundary dispute it had developed with Kenya to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in 2014.

Kenya has announced last year that it was going to officially open a diplomatic Mission in Hargeisa, the capital of Somaliland appointing Ambassador Philip Githora to head it.

Trade talks between the two countries have since gained fresh ground the latest development from which indicates that Kenya Airways may soon start direct flights connecting Hargeisa to Nairobi.

The international community-propped administration of federal Somalia has been biting its nails trying every trick in the world to keep the 28-year old, very mature, democratic Somaliland tucked away in the shadows forever – an impossible task in the circumstances.

Somaliland in another diplomatic breakthrough with president’s visit to Guinea

(MENAFN – SomTribune) Somaliland has made another diplomatic breakthrough with the state visit of the country’s president Musa Bihi Abdi to Guinea.

President Bihi is on a state visit to the West African nation of Guinea, on invitation by President Alpha Conde.

The visit is a sure sign of Somaliland’s rapid acceptance across the African continent and its growing economic and trading links with other nations.

President Musa Bihi and President Conde pledged to find ways working together in trade and fostering cooperation.

The Somaliland government is steadily building its case for recognition on the basis of trade and business opportunities with its fellow Africans, arguing that an independent Somaliland capable of trading with African and international partners will be a benefit to all and strengthen peace, prosperity and security.

Bihi who came to power after a peaceful, free and fair election with a peaceful transfer of power only 18 moths ago has been on a shuttle diplomacy to build Somaliland’s case for recognition. He has already Ethiopia, Djibouti, the United Arab Emirates.

Somaliland already enjoys warm and growing ties in East African, most notably with Kenya and it is keen on marketing itself as a new and profitable frontier economy in the region with considerable untapped resources.

Unlike neighboring Somalia which continues to be ridden with violence, instability and terrorism, Somaliland is enjoys stability and peace.

Unlike Somalia which continues to battle Al Shabaab on a daily basis despite massive support from AMISOM peacekeepers has suffered 589 documented acts of terrorism and assassination. By comparison, Somaliland has see only 1 act of terrorism in 27 years.

This peace and stability and open market economy is the reason why 10,000 Kenyans have made the journey to Somaliland in search of jobs and economic opportunity.

Kenyans can be found living freely and making a good living in the Somaliland capital, Hargeisa working as teachers, hotel managers, restauranteurs, architects, advisors in agriculture, construction and much more.

Somaliland minister for foreign affairs and international cooperation Yassin Haji Mohamoud said the mission to Guinea is to build the same kind of close relations with West African countries as Somaliland enjoys with East African nations

‘Of course the two countries will be discussing matters of mutual interest during our stay in Guinea,’ the minister said.

Guinea is richly endowed with minerals, possessing an estimated quarter of the world’s proven reserves of bauxite, more than 1.8 billion metric tons of high-grade iron ore, significant diamond and gold deposits, and undetermined quantities of uranium.

Somaliland is also endowed with considerable mineral wealth particularly iron ore, uranium, platinum, rare-earth metals, gold, copper tine and manganese.

Recent geological surveys indicate that Somaliland also has abundant deposits of gemstones, from emerald to aquamarine, ruby and sapphire as well as vast amounts of garnet, quartz and opal as well as lesser-known minerals such as titanite and vesuvianite .

Somaliland also is known to be a highly promising country for oil and gas. Two international oil exploration companies, the British company Genel and the UAE based RAK Gas will begin drilling their first exploration wells early next year.

No doubt the Somaliland delegation will want to learn from Guinea’s experience in this field as the International Monetary Fund {IMF} has identified mining as the key sector in Guinea’s economy.

‘The Guinean economy is growing at a fast pace, driven by a buoyant mining sector,’ Giorgia Albertin, the IMF’s mission chief for Guinea, said previously.

Somaliland finance minister Dr Saad Ali Shire who is part of the delegation to Guinea said the tour is to learn how the country has modelled its economy especially in the mining sector.

But there are other untapped business opportunities that Somaliland wants to attract African investors and companies too. Somaliland has an 900km coastline with some of the richest seafood and marine resources which is barely touched as well as fertile agricultural lands which remain uncultivated.

But the economic transformation of Somaliland is already underway with the $450 million investment by the UAE global logistics company DP World currently transforming Berbera port in Somaliland into a regional transportation hub.

On the flipside, Somaliland’s economy is currently vastly dependent on remittances from its committed diaspora community, which provide 55% of the GDP.

The country too is active in livestock exportation. President Musa Bihi aims to foster deeper and closer links with African countries on the basis of trade, business opportunities and investment in order to transform the economy of Somaliland and benefit African partners.

Guinea is the third African nation the Somaliland president has visited this year after his visit to Djibouti and Ethiopia in February. However, another crucial part of President Musa Bihi’s visit to Guinea is to build a case for the country’s international recognition which is slowly but surely gathering momentum.

Somaliland President Flies Out to Visit Guinea Conakry

(MENAFN – SomTribune) His Excellency the President of the Republic of Somaliland, Musa Behi Abdi, Monday, flew out of the country to visit the West African country of Guinea (Conakry).

The President, according to the Foreign minister, Professor Yassin Haji Mohamoud Hiir ‘Farattton’, was responding to an official invitation he and his government received from the Guinean President, Alpha Condé.

“Of course the two countries will be discussing matters of mutual interest during its stay in Guinea,” Professor Faratoon said.

On this visit, Minister Faratoon disclosed, the President’s delegation will include himself, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Minister of Finance, Dr Saad Ali Shire, the Minister for Health Development Omar Abdi (Omar Dheere) and a member of the Somaliland Recognition Taskforce, the very formidable Dr Edna Adan Ismail.

The inclusion of the last member and the fact that the delegation was traversing the continent from its eastern tip to its furthest west, implied loads but, however, neither the press probed nor answers were volunteered.

Minister Faratoon, on a separate note, speaking, of Somalia completely taking over the Somaliland airspace, said it was regrettable that the caretaker international agency – ICAO – went in cahoots with Somalia transferring management to it unfairly and without taking all possible ramifications into account.

Again the media failed to ask him why the government did not challenge the transfer process which had been on for the past two to three years and so abundantly covered by both local and international media.

Guinea borders the Atlantic Ocean to the west. On land, it shares borders with Guinea Bissau, The Gambia, Mali, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Cote d’Ivoire. Its population is estimated at 12.7 million and has a total area of 245,720 Km2 (94,873 sq. miles). 39.8 % of the population is urban (5,328,964 people in 2019).

Hearing clinic goes the extra mile to help patients suffering from dementia

by jonlinds

When Kari Weisgerber was studying to become a hearing aid practitioner, one of the first patients she worked with was an older woman living with Alzheimer’s disease.

When the woman grew frustrated, as those living with dementia sometimes do, she’d pull out her hearing aids and throw them away. Her Alzheimer’s could make it impossible to find them again.
“She was much less combative when she could hear, so her family would always replace the aids,” says Kari. “But hearing aids are expensive! We don’t want them getting lost.”

After thinking it over, Kari had an idea: a lightweight strap for the aids, barely noticeable to the patient.

It was simple, but it worked like a charm. The woman would get frustrated and throw her aids. She’d enjoy a break from the noise. Then a caretaker would discreetly tuck the aids back into her ears.

Seeing the impact this had on the patient and their family made a big impression on Kari, now the director and CEO of the Hear In Edmonton clinics.

“Being able to hear is not a cure for dementia,” she says. “But we certainly see improvement in the quality of life for our patients with dementia and their families when we help them hear.”
That is why Hear In Edmonton’s staff are all specially trained in testing the hearing of people suffering from dementia.

“It may take a little longer, or need to be done in pieces, but we almost always get some very useful results,” says Kari. “Whatever the patient can give us, we can make use of. For instance, with speech testing, instead of letting the machine do it, we do it with our own voice and just take our time.”
Kari and her team all do house calls, making it easier for patients who might struggle in new environments to enjoy the best hearing they can.

“We’re unique in that we’ll come to your home,” she says. “All of our equipment is portable, and we can accommodate any health problem or situation.”

In fact, depending on the case, a house call can result in better treatment for a patient, as their hearing aid can be calibrated in their particular environment.

“Hearing loss and dementia both can result in frustration, misunderstanding what people are saying, and not getting the full picture. Telling them apart can be pretty tricky.”

But Hear In Edmonton’s services don’t just improve the lives of those diagnosed with dementia. “People are often surprised when they learn about the similarity in symptoms of dementia and hearing loss,” says Kari. “It’s widely known in the industry, but not among people in general.

“Hearing loss and dementia both can result in frustration, misunderstanding what people are saying, and not getting the full picture. Telling them apart can be pretty tricky.”

If you think a loved one might have dementia, it’s worth making sure that hearing loss is not part of the problem. You might even find out that what was thought to be dementia can be remedied with hearing loss treatment.

Of course, hearing aid technology has come a long way since Kari’s student days. One of the most important innovations for patients with dementia is the development of GPS-linked hearing aids, which can help locate loved ones who may wander off and get lost. They can also make finding the aids themselves much easier.

Kari remembers one patient with dementia in particular who benefitted from this.

“He was very hard of hearing, and he wouldn’t go anywhere without his hearing aids,” she says. “His wife really appreciated that she could locate him on her phone if he managed to leave the home without anyone being aware. It was a really wonderful peace of mind.”

Other technological developments of note include wireless microphones that connect to hearing aids and can be clipped to a lapel and allow a patient to engage in conversation in noisy public places like cafes and restaurants. These mics also allow Kari’s patients to do things like go to church and still hear the pastor.

The tools used have changed since Kari began her career two decades ago, but the intent of her craft is the same: restoring personal connections.

“All too often it’s easier to step back from someone who has dementia, or hearing loss, or both, and not engage,” says Kari. “I think that’s a shame.

“Modern technology gives us so many tools to reconnect people with their loved ones. We want to maximize hearing to minimize challenges.”

26 JUNE 1960 ILAA 1 JULY 1960 TAARIIKH LAMA ILAA WAAN AH!

Waxaa mudan in aan sulfad ku dulmaro qoraankan Afka Ingriiska ku qoran ee muujinaya qadiimanimada Somaliland oo dad u haystaan in 1991 kii uun ay ka bilaabanto taariikhda Somaliland oo u maleenayaan in la soo noqodadii xornimadeedu aaney ka horeyn. Bal yara daymo taariikhdan kooban:

The history of Somaliland, a region in the eastern horn of Africa bordered by the Indian Ocean, Gulf of Aden, and the east African land mass, begins with human habitation tens of thousands of years ago. It includes the civilizations of Punt, the Ottomans, and colonial influences from Europe and the Middle East.

wikipedia.org:-

The region that today encompasses Somaliland was home to one of the earliest civilizations in Somalia. The most salient feature of this ancient civilization is thought to be the Laas Geel Neolithic cave paintings, which are among the oldest such rock art in Africa. These cave paintings are located in a site outside Hargeisa, the capital of the Somaliland region, and were untouched and intact for nearly 10,000 years until their recent discovery. The paintings show an indigenous people worshiping cattle. There are also paintings of giraffes, domesticated canines and wild antelopes, with images of cows wearing ceremonial robes while next to them are some of these people prostrating in front of the cattle. The Las Geel caves and their paintings have become a major tourist attraction and a national treasure. The caves were even visited by a French archaeological team during November and December 2002.

26kii Juun 1960, waa maalintii Somaliland , noqonay dal xor ah oo ka mid ah dalalka adduun weynaha, waxaana  aqoonsaday dalal ka badan 30.Waxaa aan Muran ku jirin in maalintaa 26 June ay Somali oo dhami ku faraxdey oo ay noqotey hooyadii Xoriyada waa cadaan in Somaliland tahay Dawladii ugu horeysey ee Somaliyeed ee xor ah.Waxaa Dalka xoriyada gaarsiiyey  xisbiyadii NUF, USP iyo SNL, balse taariikhdooda waxaa baabiyey Somalidii koonfureed oo ay u geeyeen dawladnimadii

Xisbigii SYL ee Konfurta Somaliya ayaa taariikhdiisa la buunbuuniyey waxaana taariikhdii xisbiyadii Somaliland (SNL,USP iyo NUF) laga dhigey iyaga iyo halgamaashii xoriyada keenay ee reer Somaliland kuwo laga ilaaliyey in taariikhdooda la sheego oo si fiican loo gudbiyo dadka Somaliyeed taasina waxay ka mid tahay dhibaatooyinka xasadka u badan iyo taariikh qarinta ee Somalidii konfureed ee aynu la midoobnay inagula kacayn.

26 June 1960 Maa aha maalin qarsoomi karta waa maalin ku xusan taariikhda dunida waa maalin laga helayo qoraalada diplomacy yada ee Caalamka waayo waxaa xoroobey dal dhan oo ka mid noday Caalamka Xorta ah Mudo Afar cisho ahna iskii u taagnaa waana dalkii ugu horeyey ee Somaliyeed ee xor noqda Somaliland Dalkayga.

Trump says ‘I don’t care about the Europeans’ after questions on Iran crisis

© Provided by Independent Digital News & Media Limited

Donald Trump has said he “doesn’t care about the Europeans” when it comes to dealing with Iran as the feud between Washington and Tehran escalates.

The US president said he had called off an attack against Iran in response to the shooting down of an American drone because he “didn’t think it was proportionate”.

Yet Mr Trump also said the US military had identified Iranian targets for air strikes. “I have so many targets you wouldn’t believe … We have targets all over,” he told interviewer Chuck Todd on NBC’s Meet the Press.

“I’m not looking for war and if there is, it’ll be obliteration like you’ve never seen before. But I’m not looking to do that.”

Mr Trump dismissed European leaders’ efforts to uphold the Iranian nuclear deal forged between world powers in 2015.

“I don’t care about the Europeans,” he said. “The Europeans are going out and making a lot of money … In France, they’re selling cars to Iran. They’re doing other things.”

He added: “And let me tell you, we’re very good to Europe. We take care of them. NATO, we spend a tremendous amount … On trade, the European Union’s taken, really, they have really taken advantage of us for a long time.”

Mr Trump said he backed away from the planned strikes about 30 minutes before the planes were ready to leave after learning 150 people would be killed. “I didn’t like it. I didn’t think it was, I didn’t think it was proportionate.”

Asked by Mr Todd whether he felt pushed into military action by any of his team, such as national security adviser John Bolton, the US president said: “I have two groups of people. I have doves and I have hawks.

“Yeah, John Bolton is absolutely a hawk. If it was up to him he’d take on the whole world at one time, okay? But that doesn’t matter because I want both sides.”

WATCH: President Trump tells Meet the Press: “Saudi Arabia is a big buyer of American product. That means something to me. It’s a big producer of jobs.… Take their money. Take their money, Chuck. “

Asked what he thinks Iran wants, Mr Trump said, “I think they want to negotiate. And I think they want to make a deal. And my deal is nuclear. Look, they’re not going to have a nuclear weapon … I don’t think they like the position they’re in. Their economy is absolutely broken.”

Questioned about the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Mr Trump said he did not discuss it during a phone call on Friday with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

When asked about arms deals with Saudi Arabia, the president said: “I’m not like a fool that says, “We don’t want to do business with them.” And by the way, if they don’t do business with us, you know what they do? They’ll do business with the Russians or with the Chinese … Take their money. Take their money, Chuck.”

BEESHA ISAAQ……..!

Xildhibaan Dhakool Sidee uu u mid uga sii ahaan karaa Golaha Wakiilada Somaliland isaga oo Aminsan in :

a) 18 may tahay maalin beesha isaaq ay iska lee dahay.

b) Gobolada darafyadu waxay 18 May u yaqaanin maalin madow.

c) beesha SNM ayaa xanuun ka qaadey 26 Juun taas oo ay uga guureen 18 May.

d) 18 May waa maalintii la qaxiyey buuhoodle iyo boorame.

Waxaa aan u arkaa in ay ceeb ku tahay Golaha wakiilada in uu ka sii mid noqdo golaha wakiilada Somaliland.

Waxaa ku haboon in uu is casilo oo uu ka tego golaha wakiilada iyo waliba siyaasadaba.

Waxaa ay u muuqataa hadaladiisu kuwo ku saleysan xinqi iyo ka fogaansho runta 18 May oo ah maalintii Dadka reer Somaliland isa saamaxeen nabad iyo wada noolaasho ku heshiiyeen saldhigana u ah nabada iyo horumarka dalka sidaa darted dhakool fikirkuusu waa mid halis ku aha nabada iyo wada noolashaha bulshada reer Somaliland.

Sidaa darted waa in uu shacabka Somaliland ka raali geliyaa waxii uu yidhi waana in uu iscasilaa oo uu ka dhuuntaa shacabka reer Somaliland ilaa inta uu mawqifkiisa bedelayo.

Siyaasigu waxaa uu metelaa shacabka oo dhan reer keliya ma matalo,balse waxaa uu ku yimaadaa cod inta badan ee degaanka ama gobolka laga soo doortey sida guud ahaan dhacda golalha wakiilada ee dalalka dimoqraadiga ah.

Sidaa darted waxaa aan rajeynayaa dhakool in uu mustaqbalka dambe uu bedelo Wakiil wax tar leh oo gobolka laga soo doortey iyo qaranka somalilandba ku wada nolaadaan siyaasada iyo stragyyada qaranka ee walaaleynta iyo mideynta bulshada reer Somaliland. Dhakoolna waxaa u arkaa xildhibaan lagu qasaarey, marka aan dhageystey war bixintiisa waa mid u muuqata isku dir iyo abaabul fidno.

28 SANO OO HORUMAR AH SOMALILAND IYO 28 SANO OO DIB U DHACA SOMALIYA Q.1aad

Maqaalkaygan waxaa aan isku barbar kooban ku sameenayaa waxa yaabaha ay ku kala tageen Somaliland iyo Somaliya 28 sanadood ee ugu dambeeyey iyo sabaha keenay iney kala durkaan oo ay ka kala horumaraan dhinacyada Siyaasad,Dhaqaalaha,Waxbarasha iyo Caafimaadka.Aniga oo midmid uga hadlidoona waana dood furan oo si cilmiyeysan aynu iskula eegi doono waxyaabahaasi.

Somalidu waxay ku maahmaahdaa Aqoon La’aani Waa Iftiin La’aan!

Sanadkii 1991 bishii May 17 go’aanadii wada jirka ahaa ee ay wadagaadheen Madax dhaqameedada , Waxgaradka, ganacsatada ,siyaasintaSomaliland iyo Ururkii SNM ee Shirkii Burco ayaa lagu go’aamiyey qaraar dhigaya in Somaliland ka noqotey Midowgii labadii gobol ee Woqooyiga( Somaliland 26 Juun 1960) iyo Konfurta(Italiana Somali 1 July 1960) ee ay Ku midoobeen 1 July 1960 hal dal oo la yidhaahdo Jamhuuriyada Somaliya.

Wixii laga bilaabo 18 May 1991 Somaliland Waxay hirgalisey oo ay goosatey go’aankaas taariikhiga ah oo Shacabkii Somalilandna aad u taageereen muujiyeena sida ay uga raali yihiin dib ula soo noqoshada xoriyadoodii ay sida fudud ee bilaa shuruuda ah ugu wareejiyeen Somalidii Konfureed.

Go’aankaasi qodobada ku jirey waxaa ka mid ahaa in guud ahaanba dhibaatooyinkii uu abuuray Taliskii Maxamed Siyaad Bare ee uu reer reerka hubka iskugu dhiibey ee uu ku kala qaybiyey dadkii wada dhashay ee reer Somaliland aan wax aargoosi ah iyo wax dhibaato dambe ah oo bulshada dhexdeeda ah la geysan oo sidaa laysku saamaxo wadankana lawada dhisto oo Somaliland mid ah la abuuro dhinac kastana nabad iyo cadaalad lagu wada noolaado.

Go’aankaasi wuxuu ahaa mid sax ah oo wakhtigii ku haboonaa dhacay waana midka Somaliland ka badbaadiyey dhibaatada ka taagan ilaa hada mandaqada.

Shirkaa iyo qabanqaabadiisa ma jiro cid ka taageertay  sida dawlado shisheeye,hayado caalamiya iwm Waxgaradka iyo Siyaasiinta Somaliland ee wakhtigaasi  shirka qababqaabadiisa iyo habsami u socodkiisa  wadey  markaasi oo wax walba  oo tasiilad ahi aaney jirin dhaqaale,maamul,dawlad iwm balse waxgaradkii Wakhtigaasi guntiga u xidheen sidii ay u badbaadin la’aayeen umadooda Alle(swt) mahad dhamaanteed isaga ayaa iska leh waa uu u suurageliyey niyadaasi wanaagsan ee ay la yimaadeen iyo wanaagaasi.

Isweydiintu waxay tahay waxaa aynu maqalnaa Abaal gudyo Caalamiya oo la siiyo Shaqsiyaad ama hayado aduunka wax ku soo kordhiyey (Awarded for outstanding contributions for humanity in chemistry, literature, peace, physics, physiology or medicine and economic sciences).Sida  Peace Noble Braze ka iwm. Siyaasiintii iyo Madax dhaqameedkii shirkii Burco ee 1991 way istaahileen abaal gudkaa iyo mid ka sareeya ee haydaha bixiya Abaal marintaasi xagey la mareen?

Halkaa waxaad ka garan kartaa in xitaa aduunku kala bakheylay in lagu hambalyeyo nabada iyo wanaaga ka dhashay shirkii Burco ee taariikhda Caalamka aan hore uga dhicin in urur Hubeysan oo dal xoog ku qabsadey intuu Waxgaradii dalka iskugu yeedhay shir u qabtey lagaga arinsanayo mustaqbalka siyaasadeed ee dal waliba ka dhaceen xasuuqyada taariikhda caalamka naadirka ku ah sida ka dhacdey Somaliland Bishii May 1988 kii.

The Baidoa Security Training Centre will support the Somali National Army and promote long-term stability and security in Somali

MOGADISHU, Somalia, June 10, 2019/APO Group/ —

Somalia’s Minister of Defence, Hassan Ali Mohammed, Southwest State Speaker, Abdulkadir Shariif Sheekhuna, and the UK Foreign Office’s Political Director, Richard Moore, today opened a new UK training facility for the Somali National Army (SNA) in Baidoa.

The Baidoa Security Training Centre (BSTC), supported by the British government’s Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF), will support the SNA and promote long-term stability and security in Somalia. The new centre will train up to 120 Somali National Army soldiers at a time and will help the SNA improve the quality of its training.

Speaking at the opening of the facility, British Ambassador to Somalia, Ben Fender, said:

“The UK is one of the major international providers of support to the Somali National Army. We’re playing a central part in helping the SNA conduct current operations in Lower Shabelle including through giving practical help to the newly recovered areas – like new housing for Sabid community.”

“In Baidoa, the Somali forces we are supporting have been building defensive positions to make the approach roads into the city more secure. This is having a direct impact on the number of attacks in the city and the security of the surrounding area.”

“The SNA are motivated, keen to learn and professional. We are committed to long-term co-operation in order to help Somalia improve security and regain full control over its territory.”

The Somalia’s Minister of Defence, Hassan Ali Mohammed said:

“Security and stability is crucial for the future of Somalia. Al Shabaab is a threat to the national security and supporting the army is vital in undermining the extremist efforts.”

“I would like to thank the UK government for their continuous support to Somalia. To the SNA you have an important role to play in securing the country, take advantage of the trainings provided to better yourself and to secure the country.”

The British military personnel have been training the SNA since January 2017. They have delivered courses on areas such as medical skills, leadership, equipment care, logistics and human rights.
