“We believe technology can help local and national organizations to better reach their goals and solve some of the continent’s most pressing challenges, and we are eager to back people who are using technology in new ways to make a positive difference in their communities,” said Charles Murito, Country Manager, Google Kenya.

“We also want to highlight the healthy state of social enterprise in Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa today, and encourage non-profits to consider how technology and innovation can help them reach their goals,” he added.

People are encouraged to apply since the applications are open for the next 6 months. The public will vote for the idea they believe has the most potential, and the judges will select 3 more winners after hearing in-person pitches from a set of finalists.

Google whose main offices are in  California is also simultaneously rolling out the GIC in Nigeria and South Africa, bringing the total grant offered in the three countries to USD 6 million.

At Google4Nigeria in July 2017, Google.org announced that it is investing USD 20 million in non-profits working across the continent over the next five years.

Many African non-profit organisations are using technology in innovative ways. However, access to funding and technological expertise are often a barrier to other, equally ambitious projects getting off the ground. Google hopes the Impact Challenge will change that and encourage the entire non-profit sector to think big.

GIC judges will review submitted projects based on three criteria:

  1. Impact. How will the proposed project improve lives? How many people will be affected if successful and to what extent? Is the proposal rooted in research that identifies the size of the problem and how the proposed idea will help solve it?
  2. Technology / Innovation.  Does the proposal leverage technology in a new and creative way to tackle the issue it seeks to address?
  3. Scalability. If successful, how easily can this project scale? Can this proposal serve as a model for other efforts?
  4. Feasibility. Does the team have a well-developed, realistic plan to execute on the proposal? Have they identified the right partners for implementation?
  • Community Impact: If successful, can the proposed project create economic opportunity in the area, and make a difference in the lives of underserved populations?
  • Innovation: Does the project present unexpected solutions to the target population’s needs?
  • Scale: Does the project have the potential to help a large part of the target group? Can it serve as a model for other communities? Will its scope grow over time?

Feasibility: Is the project plan well thought-out, and the team well equipped to execute on it?

Other Google Impact Challenges around the world have supported ideas ranging from smart cameras for wildlife conservation tosolar lightsfor off -grid communities.

to a mobile application that helps  to protect women from domestic violence.

Since 2013, Google has run 18 GICs in 15 countries, received more than 10,000 nonprofit applications, made 370 Grants and involved more than 2000 Googlers.

Interested nonprofits and social enterprises in Kenya can apply on Impactchallenge.with google.com /kenya2018 or visit: g.co/kenyachallenge.

Man who stabbed his son to death commits suicide in police cells

A man who stabbed his son to death during a fight with his wife has committed suicide in police cells.

Eutycus Githinji hanged himself with his shoe laces at Huruma police station, where he was remanded by a court. His body was found hanging from the window of the cells’ toilets.

Githinji, 45, was arrested last Monday, weeks after he stabbed his stepson with a kitchen knife and went into hiding.

Dennis Mwema, 18, was stabbed on May 9 at their Huruma home as he attempted to stop Githinji from beating his mother Eunice Wanza. Mwema was confirmed dead at hospital.

Wanza, 37, sustained minor injuries. She reported the matter to officers at the Huruma station.

Untold tale of how Ida Odinga rescued Yvonne Khamati from an abusive hubby

She said Mwema was stabbed with a kitchen knife.

Wanza had been married to Githinji for eight years. He returned home drunk at 3am and the two got into a verbal altercation, which turned into a fistfight.

Mwema was asleep but woke up to rescue his mother. Githinji turned on his stepson with kicks and blows.

He dragged Mwema into the kitchen, where he stabbed him. Neighbours said they heard Wanza screaming for help.

Yesterday, Nairobi DCI chief Ireri Kamwende said police are investigating Githinji’s death.

Mwema’s case is among many where children are caught up in fights between their parents.

In March, police in Voi arrested a woman who allegedly killed her one-week-old son following a domestic squabble with her husband.

Taita Taveta police boss Fredrick Ochieng said Esther Wanjala, 27, is suspected of suffocating the baby during the fight at their home in Dambi village, Sagalla location.

Surgeons grow soldier’s new ear in her forearm after she suffered a head injuries in a car accident

A soldier who lost her ear will get a new one – once it finishes growing under the skin of her forearm.

Private Shamika Burrage lost her entire left ear in a car accident in 2016 when she was just 19.

In a rare and remarkable procedure, Army surgeons at the William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, Texas, have recreated an ear for Burrage out of cartilage, and tucked it into her arm to finish growing.

Soon, the ear grown in her own body will be transplanted to the left side of her face, where Burrage, now 21, will even be able to feel her new appendag

In 2016, Burrage and her cousin were driving back to her post in Texas from a visit to family in Mississippi when one of the car’s tires blew out.

Behind the wheel, Burrage stomped on the brake and remembers looking with concern at her pregnant cousin next to her.

They skidded off the road for 700 feet and the vehicle started flipping.

‘I just remember the first flip and that was it,’ Burrage told Army.mil.  

Burrage was thrown from the car, bashing her head against the pavement and fracturing her spine in several places.

Her body tumbled and slid on the pavement, leaving her with road rash, and completely destroying her left ear.

ear

The soldier came to on the ground, looking up at her pregnant cousin who was standing above her, looking remarkably unscathed.

‘Then I remember people walking up to us, asking if we were okay and then I blacked out,’ she said.

When she next opened her eyes, Burrage was in the hospital. She had lost her ear and a lot of blood.

Doctors had to reopen her ear canal, which had been damaged during the  crash.

If she’d been on the roadside for another half hour, she probably wouldn’t have made it to the hospital alive.

Burrage was alive but deeply shaken by the accident.

She spent several months in physical rehab, and started seeing a counselor.

The crash and her injuries were traumatic for the young woman, and every glimpse in the mirror was a reminder of those horrific moments.

‘I didn’t feel comfortable with the way I looked so the provider referred me to plastic surgery,’ Burrage said.

She could be fitted with a plastic prosthetic ear or she could have one reconstructed.

‘I didn’t want to do [the reconstruction] but gave it some thought and came to the conclusion that it could be a good thing,’ she told Army.mil.

‘I was going to go with the prosthetic, to avoid more scarring but I wanted a real ear.

‘I was just scared at first but wanted to see what [the surgeon] could do.’

Her surgeon, Dr Lt Col Owen Johnson III encouraged her to have the reconstruction.

‘She was 19 and healthy and had her whole life ahead of her. Why should she have to deal with having an artificial ear for the rest of her life?’ he said.

Together, he and Burrage chose a procedure that would not only give her a new wear, but cover some of the scarring to the side of her face.

To give Burrage a new ear, Dr Johnson, chief of plastic and reconstructive surgery at the William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, Texas, first harvested cartilage from her ribs.

The cartilage was then shaped into an ear in a first-of-its kind effort for the Army.

Meanwhile, the plastic surgery team expanded a segment of skin on Burrage’s forearm to make room for the precious cargo she would soon carry there.

When enough room had been made, newly-molded ear was surgically placed under the skin flap.

The body, recognizing its own tissue, then encourages the growth of new blood vessels and even a nerve in the fledgling ear.

‘[The ear] will have fresh arteries fresh veins and even a fresh nerve so she’ll be able to feel it,’ said Dr Johnson.

As an added bonus to the reconstruction, the extra skin stretched on her arm will cover the scar tissue by Burrage’s jaw.

Making her an ear from scratch has taken more than a year but Burrage now has just two more surgeries to go.

‘It’s been a long process for everything but I’m back,’ said Burrage.

This luxurious cars make you want to rethink your life and the decisions you are making now, but for now just drool!!!

Pagani Huayra ($1.4M)

That’s a cool Sh141Million.

This car is named after a South American wind god called Huayra Tata. A mid-engined hypercar with a better power-to-weight ratio than a Bugatti Veyron SS, the 1,350kg Huayra uses a 6.0-litre AMG-sourced 60-degree V12 with two turbos to produce 700-ish bhp and 728lb ft of torque. Translation? Zero to 62mph in less than 3.5 seconds and ‘over’ 230mph. There’s a seven-speed sequential driving the rear wheels only, and the ‘box is interesting in that it isn’t a dual-clutch: Horacio Pagani believed that the increase in weight (70kg extra) over a normal sequential wasn’t the kind of trade-off he wanted to make.

Aston Martin One-77 ($1.4M)

Sounds crazy right? But again, that’s Sh141Million.

The car which was developed in New Zealand can reach 100kmph from zero in just 3.7 seconds and travels up to 354kmph. It weighs 1630kg, has a whopping 7.3L V12 engine, and a carbon fibre monocoque structure.

 

The $4 million Aston Martin One-77 can go from zero to 100kmph in just 3.7 seconds.

Koenigsegg One:1 ($2.0M)

The car boasts of a 1:1 kilogram-to-horsepower ratio. . That’s right, this car has 1,340 hp, and can theoretically peak 273 mph. Simply put, this is one of the fastest automobiles ever made, and behind its F1-style honeycomb core, carbon fiber intake manifold, and ventilated ceramic brakes, it’s one of the most militant. The car goes for Ksh201.6 million.

Ferrari F60 America ($2.5M)

It really is a slick-seeking machine, with clear revisions above the F12’s already svelte bodywork. The F60 America will take the type of a roadster, with carbon fiber-trimmed flying buttresses that stretch from behind the cabin to the rear of the automobile. There’s no electrical power soft- or hardtop available – rather, Ferrari says the car can be closed off with a light fabric leading which is usable at speeds of up to about 75 miles per hour.

The car goes for Ksh 252 Million, with that kind of money you can buy land in Lavington according to statistics released  in Kenya, invest and still walk around throwing some cash.

Mansory Vivere Bugatti Veyron ($3.4M)

The luxurious car boasts of a fascinating carbon fiber body, an accumulation spoiler package, upgraded LED lights, a rebuffed cabin, and a redesigned stomach grill. Further classifying the Veyron as a take take steps of art,  and it can do 254 mph

Larger air outlets on the flanks of the vehicle and at the rear give optimized motor cooling, and together with the new diffuser and the two air intakes, they underline the transition from roof to bonnet on this powerful car design.

She’s Glowing! K24’s Mwanaisha Chidzuga heavily pregnant with 4th child

In an interview with this writer, the singer revealed he was the one who organized the baby shower for his wife.

“I planned the baby shower myself and invited her workmates and a few of my relatives. That has not happened again, it is always the other way, but I chose to organize it myself because I wanted it to be private.

I did not even call our friends because I knew, atajua ata before the day itself.”

That is odd, Right? he said;

“I am the one who knows her, I know what she likes and what she does not like.”

The singer has also taken it to his instagram page to appreciate his wife.

Shock For Former KTN Editor As Judge orders His Remand In Theft Case

Things seem to be going badly for former KTN editor Aaron Ochieng after a Magistrate ordered he be remanded after contempt of a court order.

The order came after the former editor (below) forfeited his bail in a Sh2.8 million theft case in which he had been accused of stealing a Mercedes Benz belonging to Joy Doreen Biira, who is now working under the Ministry of Mining. The case was scheduled for mention yesterday.

Former KTN editor Aaron Ochieng

Ochieng’ initially accused Biira of collusion, a statement he later recanted his statement and apologised for  after which the court allowed the two to settle the case outside court.

The court magistrate Andayi was yesterday informed that Ochieng’ had only paid Sh350,000 of the Sh1 million he was to repay, the matter was referred to Andayi from senior principal magistrate Peter Ooko after Joy(below) and Ochieng failed to agree on payment terms. Andayi directed Ochieng’ to remain in custody pending payment of the new bail. The accused requested the court to give him more time to raise the money.

But Andayi dismissed the request and forfeited the Sh300,000 bail Ochieng had posted. “This file has been brought to me from a different court and it seems that the parties have failed to agree on settlement for almost a year. The accused should remain in custody until he pays the new bail,” Andayi said.

In September last year, the dispute was scheduled to proceed to full hearing after the two journalists failed to settle the dispute out of court.

Ooko granted them a last chance to settle the dispute. The case will be mentioned on June 5.

According to the Star, Mackline delivered, but during the stitching, a needle was left inside her genitals.This resulted in a lot of pain and she was transferred to the Bungoma Referral Hospital, where an X-ray at the same hospital showed a needle was stuck in her genitals.

The young mother will have to endure the pain for a little longer after doctors at the referral hospital claimed that they cannot operate on her since the machines are, not repaired

This is not the first time that a medical practitioner is accused of negligence, given that a few months ago a patient died at the Kenyatta Hospital after doctors performed a brain surgery on the wrong patient.

Bungoma medical superintendent Magrima Mayama confirmed the needle was left in the woman’s body, but medics are working on how to remove it.
“It’s true the medics at our facility in Bulondo accidentally left a needle in her body. When we took her to theater to remove it, we found our machines out of order,” she said.
Mayama said they have contacted the supplier of the machine to send a team of experts to repair it before conducting the operation.
She said they tried to convince the family of the patient to take her to Eldoret Hospital, but they declined.
Amunga said her family could not afford to take her to Eldoret Hospital.
“I have no money to go to another expensive hospital. If I have to be moved to another hospital, then the county should pay the bills,” she said.
Amunga has appealed to the national government to intervene.
