Millions of immigrants living illegally in the US will be allowed to apply for work permits under a major shake-up unveiled by President Barack Obama.
They include immigrants who have been in the US for five years and have children staying legally in the US.
About four million people are expected to benefit from a reform package forced through using executive orders, which allow Mr Obama to bypass Congress.
Republicans have accused the president of an "illegal power-grab".
There are estimated to be 11 million illegal immigrants in the US.
Under Mr Obama's plan, undocumented parents of children who are US citizens or legal residents will be able to apply for work permits lasting three years.
Only parents who have lived in the US for five years will qualify.Some 3.7 million people are thought to be eligible for this scheme, according to the Migration Policy Institute.
Another part of the package will extend a programme that gives temporary legal status to people who arrived in the US as children.
Currently only those under the age of 30 who arrived before 2007 can apply for the programme, which was launched in 2012 and already covers roughly 1.2 million people.

  • Akizungumza jijini Dar es Salaam jana, Kamishna Mkuu wa Mamlaka wa TRA, Rished Bade alisema kwamba mapato hayo yameongezeka tangu mwaka 2001 na  kabla ya hapo mamlaka hiyo ilikuwa ikikusanya Sh800 bilioni.
Dar es Salaam. Mamlaka ya Mapato Tanzania (TRA), imesema inakusanya Sh10 trilioni  ikiwa ni makusanyo ya kodi kila mwaka tangu mwaka 2001.
Akizungumza jijini Dar es Salaam jana, Kamishna Mkuu wa Mamlaka wa TRA, Rished Bade alisema kwamba mapato hayo yameongezeka tangu mwaka 2001 na  kabla ya hapo mamlaka hiyo ilikuwa ikikusanya Sh800 bilioni.
Akizungumza katika ziara ya Balozi wa Jamhuri ya Kidemokrasia ya Kongo (DRC) kukagua ufanisi wa Bandari ya Dar es Salaam jana, Kamishna Bade alisema kwa sasa kuna mwitikio mkubwa kwa Watanzania kulipa kodi.
Alisema miaka ya nyuma wananchi hawakuwa na mwamko wa kulipa kodi licha ya semina mbalimbali zilizokuwa zikitolewa.

Kitimtim bungeni

  • Wabunge washinikiza kujadili ripoti ya IPTL
  • Kauli ya Zitto yaashiria mtikisiko mkubwa
  • Pinda apata wakati mgumu akijieleza
Dodoma. Kitimtim bungeni. Hicho ndicho kilichotokea bungeni jana baada ya Naibu Spika, Job Ndugai kuwaomba wabunge kukishauri kiti chake juu ya hatua ya kuwasilishwa na kujadiliwa kwa ripoti ya uchunguzi wa IPTL kwa madai ya kuwapo kesi mahakamani.
Wabunge wa pande zote – chama tawala na upinzani waliopata fursa ya kuzungumza, walitoa kauli zinazofanana za kutaka suala hilo lijadiliwe na chombo hicho cha kutunga sheria, huku wakipinga njama za kutaka kuzima hoja.
Hata pale Waziri Mkuu, Mizengo Pinda alipojaribu kueleza umuhimu wa kumaliza suala hilo bila mihimili ya Bunge na Mahakama kuingiliana, zilisikika sauti wabunge wakimzomea, ikimaanisha kuwa suala hilo lazima lijadiliwe kwa uwazi bungeni.
Kwa jinsi mjadala huo wa wabunge ulivyokwenda, ni dhahiri kwamba ripoti hiyo iliyochunguza kuchotwa kwa Sh306 bilioni katika akaunti ya Tegeta Escrow italeta mtikisiko mkubwa serikalini na bungeni kama ambavyo gazeti hili liliripoti Jumanne iliyopita.

Wazanzibari wanaona giza tororo

JUU:  MUANDISHI BWNA AHMED RAJAB DURING HIS HEY DAYS AT THE BUSH HOUSE - BBC SWAHILI SERVICE!

NCHINI Chile, Amerika ya Kusini, kuna mahali panapoitwa Isla Negra (Kisiwa Cheusi).Ingawa panaitwa hivyo pahala hapo si kisiwa wala si peusi. Ni sehemu ya mwambao katikati mwa Chile na safari ya kufika huko kwa motokaa kutoka mji mkuu, Santiago, ni ya muda wa saa mbili.

Isla Negra pamepata umaarufu kwa sababu huko akiishi Pablo Neruda, mshairi maarufu wa Chile. Neruda alifariki 1973 akiwa na umri wa miaka 69. Angalikuwa bado yu hai basi Julai iliyopita angelitimia miaka 110.
Pablo Neruda alikuwa gwiji wa washairi wa karne ya 20.Sahibu yake mwanasanaa na mshairi wa Kihispania Pablo Picasso aliwahi kumuelezea hivi Neruda:
“Yeye [Neruda] si mshairi mkubwa nchini kwao tu, Chile, lakini ni mshairi mkubwa mwenye kuandika kwa lugha ya Kihispania na ni miongoni mwa washairi wakubwa duniani.”
Nimeamua kumkumbuka Neruda kwa sababu Neruda alikuwa ni mshairi wa umma aliyeyatunga mengi ya mashairi yake kuwasemea na kuwatetea wanyonge.

Forget Boeing! Delta goes with Airbus: $14 billion aircraft order sealed

Original and unique global international news with a focus on travel and tourism
Keeping the jobs at home? This is not really a priority for US-based Delta Air Lines these days. Champagne is flowing in Europe tonight, after US-based Delta Air Lines committed to spend US$50 billion on aircraft orders not with Boeing, but with rival Airbus in Europe.
Delta had chosen the Airbus A350-900 and A330-900neo to replace older generation Boeing 747 and 767 aircraft starting in 2017 and 2019, respectively.
Both Boeing and Airbus are fighting for their share in the global aircraft market. After Airbus scored with UAE based Emirates and the A380, now Delta adds a $14 billion order for 50 widebody jets from Airbus.
In return Boeing recently scored with Etihad Airways and a firm order for 71 Boeing wide-body aircraft which include 41 787-9s and 30 787-10s.
