Roumors has it that Diva Beyonce is pregnant

Happy couple waiting for their bundle of joy
March 25, 2010. It's been a long time waiting . . . but now it's finally happened. MediaTakeOut.com just learned from a ROCK SOLID source that legendary singer Beyonce and her hip hop mogul husband Jay Z are expecting their first child together.

According to our source Beyonce is doing fine and resting (for now), but she's expected to continue working throughout her pregnancy. And we're also told that Jay Z is EXTREMELY happy to be having his first child with Bey.
Beyonce has spoken about the hard work of having a baby, having watched her younger sister Solange marry and have a son while she was still a teenager.
If it's true, congrats! If not, nevermind!
The pair have been married almost two years and she's coming off a world tour.

Ricky Martin has confirmed he is gay- kazi ipo

Hatimae ameamua kusema ukweli kwamba yeye si ridhki.

While it was widely known that he had a liking for the guys, Ricky Martin has finally officially announced that he's gay.

The "Livin' La Vida Loca" hitmaker has often been the subject of gay rumors - fueling speculation in 2008 when he adopted twin baby boys, Matteo and Valentino, born to a surrogate mother.

Coming out of the closet via a message on his Web site, Martin wrote, "A few months ago I decided to write my memoirs, a project I knew was going to bring me closer to an amazing turning point in my life."

"From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside. Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth. And this is something worth celebrating."
While many close to Ricky have advised him against the full confession, the singer admits, "Allowing myself to be seduced by fear and insecurity became a self-fulfilling prophecy of sabotage. Today I take full responsibility for my decisions and my actions."

He adds, "These years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn't even know existed. What will happen from now on? It doesn't matter. I can only focus on what's happening to me in this moment. The word 'happiness' takes on a new meaning for me as of today. It has been a very intense process. Every word that I write in this letter is born out of love, acceptance, detachment and real contentment. Writing this is a solid step towards my inner peace and vital part of my evolution. I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am."

Office gossip; Ni lazima sana kuendekeza umbea kazini?

This is a major problem at workplaces. You will hear in the corridors "have you heard the latest" so and so are doing this and that........ ili mradi tu umbea. Hebu nitumieni maoni yeu, do you think gossiping is a necessarry evil? is it possible to work in a gossip free environment? Do we need to put in place anti-gossip strategies. Just asses yourself: Have you seen gossip used as a weapon in your office? Have the effects been positive or negative? Do you enjoy gossip, or do you try to discourage it?

See how you can discourage gossip at workplaces
Step 1.
Stop at-work chit chat by halting a conversation that is headed in a gossipy direction. Try lines such as, "Let's hold off talking about Sheila until she's here," or "This not something I feel comfortable talking about with Peter in the next room." Your co-workers will be caught off-guard, but chances are they will change the subject.

Step 2
Announce the possibility that email correspondence may be recorded. Large companies perform random checks of at-work email, and this tactic can be very effective at eliminating office gossip. True, coworkers can still talk in the break room, but that's a much riskier move than spreading gossip via people's inboxes.

Step 3
Remind yourself and others that participating in gossip ruins credibility. Although coworkers may come to you for gossip, they certainly won't come to you with a serious secret or when they are in need of trusted business advice. Unfortunately, gossip goes on your invisible resume and may slow the speed at which you achieve career goals.

Step 4
Attack gossip indirectly by working toward a tighter knit community. Humans are naturally petty and self-centered, but gossip is much more likely to occur when coworkers are not getting along. If you have the luxury of working in a small or medium-sized office, create an environment that brings out the best in everyone. You'll see the gossip greatly reduced. In larger, more corporate offices, this is a difficult feat. Bring in professionals for community-building events or demand that everyone attend an office retreat.

 Step 5
Shut your own mouth. A surefire way to put a stop to office gossip is to take yourself out of the game entirely. When your mouth is shut, you can't dish it out and you can't take it. Coworkers will respect your ability to rise above the small talk and hopefully follow suit.

Tips & Warnings
Some managers take the risky, yet effective approach of confronting a gossiping employee. After discussing the problems with at-work chatter and offering disciplinary action, the manager uses the office gossip as feedback and constructive criticism for himself and the rest of the staff. This is very difficult to do in a tactful way that doesn't hurt anyone's feelings, but if it can be done well, it is a great tactic.If gossip gets to the point where it is creating a destructive office environment, consider threatening employees with a suspension or dismissal on the grounds of breach of confidentiality. It is hard to prove that gossip is destructive and idle threats aren't always the best idea, but in extreme situations, this may prove effective.Unless you happen to work in a mature, loving environment with a staff of self-aware and generous people

How to deal with conflicts at workplaces

Friction in the workplace can be stressful and counterproductive for everyone involved. Learn to approach the person with whom you are struggling and resolve the situation. Follow these few steps to alleviate awkwardness in the workplace.

1. Decide whether you want to confront the person who is bothering you. It is usually better to air grievances in the open than to let them fester.
2. Step 2
Speak to the other person calmly, politely and rationally. Focus on the situation and facts, avoiding gossip and personal attacks.
3. Step 3
Be careful not to express hostility in your posture, facial expression or tone. Be assertive without being aggressive.
4. Step 4
Listen to the other person carefully: What is she trying to say? Be sure you understand her position.
5. Step 5
Express interest in what the other person is saying. You can acknowledge her ideas without necessarily agreeing or submitting. Saying, "I understand that you feel this way. Here's how I feel..." acknowledges both positions.
6. Step 6
Communicate clearly what you want, offering positive suggestions and recommendations. Be willing to be flexible.
7. Step 7
Speak to your supervisor if a problem with a difficult co-worker seriously threatens your work, but avoid whining.

Tips & Warnings

• Deal with problematic personalities by trying to understand what motivates their behavior, then tailoring your actions to work with that personality type. Once you grasp why people behave as they do, you will be able to interact with them more effectively.

• For example, be firm with bullies at work ' don't allow them to pressure you into doing anything unwanted. Be forceful in your opinions, but act with a bit of caution.

• Around complainers, avoid acting too sympathetic if you feel their complaints are ill-founded; instead, ask what sorts of actions they plan to take to change the situation. Squarely ask th

Is your boss a pain in the neck? see How To Deal With A Difficult Boss

Summary: Bosses and supervisors aren't from another planet, but sometimes they seem to be. If you deal with the boss from hell you know. Conflict between a difficult boss and an employee can be daunting and intimidating. Here are some tips to help you deal with difficult bosses and supervisors.


Most people at some point in their lives have to deal with a difficult boss. Difficult supervisors vary in personality from being a little pushy or rude, all the way to being downright abusive. Many people feel that an abusive boss has control of their personal life outside of work by lowering their self-esteem and making them live in constant fear. The role of a supervisor sometimes attracts certain controlling-type personalities because they crave the power it gives them and because they lack such control in their own personal lives. A supervisor has complete control over your most basic human needs—your ability to put food on the table and a roof over your head. These are powerful motivating factors that allow a difficult supervisor to control people out of fear of losing these basic needs. We may not be able to always correct their behavior, but we should never have to live in fear and let our difficult boss control our lives.

Here are some strategies on handling a difficult boss situation.

1. Always have a plan B. Most people are scared about having a discussion with their boss concerning their abusive behavior because they fear reprimand or losing their job as a result of it. Their fear is usually justified if the supervisor is a control-freak and feels that their subordinate is threatening their control. Before you deal with any type of conflict, you always need to have a plan B in case things don’t work out. A plan B is the best alternative that you can come up without having to negotiate anything with your boss. In this type of scenario, your best plan B would probably take the form of having an actual job offer in hand with another employer before you have your talk. By not having a back-up plan, you have given your abusive boss even more leverage over you because they know you have no where else to go. Having a plan B, however, empowers you with the ability to walk-away at any time should the negotiation not go right. Increase your power and have a plan B before you deal with the conflict.

2. Never react to verbal abuse or harsh criticism with emotion. This will always get you into more trouble than you started with because it will become a war between egos and chances are good that your boss has a bigger ego than you have—hence why he is difficult in the first place. When a personal attack is made on you, they are trying to bait you into reacting emotionally because once you react, you become an easy target for additional attacks. The key then is not to react, but to acknowledge and move on. By doing this, you effectively strip all of the power behind their verbal attacks away from your abusive boss, without creating conflict. If your boss happens to be an intimidator or a control freak, then the best way of dealing with their behavior is to remain calm and acknowledge their power by saying, "You're right, I'm sorry." By saying this, you take away any chance of them lashing back at you because you have sidestepped their verbal attack rather than meeting it head on.

3. Discuss rather than confront. When your boss criticizes you, don’t react out of emotion and become confrontational with them about it because that just breeds more conflict. Instead, use their criticism as a topic for discussion on interests, goals, and problem-solving and ask them for their advice. If they criticize your work, then that means that they have their own idea on how that work should be done, so ask them for their advice on how your work can be improved.

4. Manage the manager. A source of conflict usually occurs when a group of employees gets a new manager who demands that things run differently. These changes are usually reactionary in nature because the employees go about their regular duties until the manager comes by and criticizes the way it is being done. Instead of waiting for their criticism, take a proactive approach and be absolutely clear from the very beginning on how your boss wants things to be done so that there is no miscommunication later on. There are many ways of completing a task and having a discussion about them at the very beginning will allow you to see things from their perspective as well as sharing your own with them. Get to know their likes and dislikes inside and out so that you can avoid future criticisms.

5. Know that you can do little to change them. Being a difficult person is part of their personality and therefore it is a very difficult, if not impossible thing to change in a supervisor, so don’t think that you can change how they act. Instead, change the way that you view their behavior. Don’t label them as being a jerk--just merely label them as your boss. By avoiding derogatory labeling, you avoid making it easy on yourself to be angry with your boss.

6. Keep your professional face on. Know the difference between not liking your boss and not being professional. You don’t have to make your boss your friend or even like your boss as a person, but you do have to remain professional and get the job done and carry out their instructions dutifully as a subordinate, just as you would expect them to be professional as do their duties as a supervisor.

7. Evaluate your own performance. Before you go attacking your boss, examine your own performance and ask yourself if you are doing everything right. Get opinions from other coworkers about your performance and see if there is any warrant to the criticisms of your supervisor before you criticize their opinions.

8. Gather additional support. If others share in your concern, then you have the power of numbers behind you to give you additional persuasion power over your boss. It is often easy for a supervisor to ignore or attack one employee, but it becomes more difficult to attack all of his employees. He might be able to fire one of you, but he will look like an idiot (and probably get fired himself) if he tries to fire all of you. An interdepartment union is a good way of mustering power against an abusive employer.

9. Don’t go to up the chain of command unless it’s a last resort. Going straight up the chain of command is not an effective way of dealing with a difficult supervisor because it only increases conflict in the workplace. Your immediate supervisor will consider this a very serious backstabbing maneuver and might seek some sort of retribution in the future against you and your career. Also, other people in your workplace might brand you as a whistleblower because of your actions. Try to discuss issues with your supervisor first and only go up the chain of command as a last resort.

10. Encourage good behavior with praise. It is easy to criticize your superiors, but criticisms often lead towards resentment and hostile feelings. Everyone likes a pat on the back for good behavior, so you should strive to watch for good behaviors from your supervisor and compliment them on that. Proactive praising is much more effective than reactive criticisms.

11. Document everything. If you choose to stay with a toxic employer, then document everything. This will become your main ammunition should a complaint ever be filed down the road. Document interactions with them as well as your own activities so that you can remind them of your own achievements at performance review time.

12. Leave work at work. Get into the habit of leaving work at home and not bringing it into your personal life because that will only add to your level of stress. Keep your professional life separate from your personal life as best as you can. This also includes having friends who you don’t work with so that you can detach yourself from your work life rather than bringing it home with you.

Bold Jackets - the in thing

Kwa wale mashion diva, jaribuni hiki kivazi. Point to be noted is dont overdo it!

And Queen Latifah wore a striped silver and black jacket with a black tank and jeans to perform at the Super Bowl.

Former Destiny's Child member Michelle Williams topped off a gray tank top and black harem pants with a silver and black diamond patterned jacket.

Retro style star Solange Knowles sported two different bold jackets to attend the 44th Annual Super Bowl Friday Night Lights party and the launch of New Tide Plus Febreeze Fresh Sport in Miami

If you want to wear the look for yourself, remember to keep the rest of your outfit simple so your jacket can shine. Like Michelle, Solange, and Latifah, wear solid colored shirts and bottoms with a sleek shoe. You'll be good to go!

Oprah Winfrey Settles Defamation Lawsuit

Hawa wameona waelewane tu nyuma ya pazia, i like the sister to sister talk, now they understand each other

The Philadelphia-based defamation suit against Oprah Winfrey by Nomvuyo Mzamane, the former headmistress of the media mogul's girls school in South Africa, was settled on Tuesday.

"The two parties met woman to woman without their lawyers and are happy that they could resolve this dispute peacefully to their mutual satisfaction," according to a statement by attorneys from both sides that was released by Winfrey's Harpo Productions.

In her lawsuit, Mzamane had claimed Winfrey defamed her in remarks made at the time of a 2007 sex-abuse scandal at the school.

Winfrey later testified in a deposition that she "did not intend the implications" placed on her statements, while Mzamane testified she had "no evidence" that Winfrey knowingly made a false statement, the attorneys say.

How can I dress well for work without spending a fortune on maternity clothes?

For the first three months or so, you'll probably be able to wear your usual clothes. You may have to leave the top button undone on your skirts and pants, but you can hide that by leaving your shirts and blouses untucked. When your waistband gets tight, loop an elastic band through the buttonhole and then wrap it around the button. This will provide a crucial extra inch or two of breathing room. If you find your bust grows quickly during this time opt for loose tops or wear suit jackets open over a blouse or shirt to disguise your increasing bustline. Or you could just flaunt it!

Then you enter the Awkward Zone. Although you don't really look pregnant, you're a bit big for your normal clothes, but perhaps not big enough for proper maternity wear. It's a frustrating time, but you can get round this problem with:

• A few pairs of pants and some skirts with elastic or drawstring waistbands in a size larger than you usually wear.

• Trendy low-rise pants that sit nicely below your belly.

• A wrap dress that accentuates your curves and accommodates your bump in its various stages of growth.

• Empire cut or baby doll dresses that hide the waist.

• Jumpers, cardigans, loose shirts, and floaty tops.

Long tops work especially well at this awkward stage, gracefully hiding your growing tummy without drawing attention to it. If you haven't shared your news with your colleagues yet, dressing in this way might buy you a little more time.

Once the word on your pregnancy is out, you may as well make life easier by dressing the part at work. You could try buying five items of clothing in similar fabrics and complimentary shades: pants, a skirt, a jacket, a dress, and a top. These can then form the basis of your wardrobe over the next few months and you can then mix and match these items with a few non-maternity sweaters and tops.

Who said villagers were not affected in North Mara gold mining?

This is shocking.

....and this boy has a future a head of him, whats  next?

So this is where we have reached, all in the name of greedy and money! I think somebody has to be responsible.
There must be safety measures at and around any workplace.We can not afford all this distruction to our people.

Dear Colleagues and partners,
Greetings from North Mara in Tarime.
I wish to share with you some photos of the current situation in North Mara. Rev. Magafu and I have been assessing and identifying the victims of the last year’s and ongoing waste ponds spillage at North Mara gold mine.
New cases of the victims are coming up with symptoms that are vivid and the situation is alarming. Two cases, though, needs immediate medical attention and action. This involves Mama Otaigo from Weigita village and Paul (8 year old boy) from Nkerege village.
The situation we have found them in is far different from when we met them during the health screening done in January 7th 2010. Their health state is deteriorating from day to day. I am attaching their current photos for your review.
As the governments still remains silent on this matter attempts to get referral letters from government health facilities have proved abortive and therefore we need to act as soon as possible to save the lives of those who are critically ill.
An appeal is made to all of you to act in your different capacities.
Kind regards,

We know it's not easy to just pack up and move somewhere for a new job -- we're only suggesting that you think about it. Assess where you are, personally and professionally. If there's nothing keeping you in your current city, expand your job search to other areas and see what you get. It's no secret that some cities have been hit harder than others, so try looking in thriving areas. It definitely won't hurt.

2. Instead of networking with only friends and family ... try broadening your network

Everyone knows that one of the best ways to find a job is through friends and family. Hiring managers are more likely to pay attention to a résumé from someone they trust than by searching through hundreds of applications. If you've been doing this, but your job search is still coming up short, it's time to cast a wider net. Reach out to former co-workers and managers, old college professors or members of clubs or associations you belong to.

3. Instead of applying only to "new" companies ... try revisiting old possibilities

You might hesitate to reach out to companies you have already applied to for fear of seeming impatient or nagging, but we beg to differ. It never hurts to get back in touch with people you've already contacted. You can let them know you are still looking for work to see if they know of anything that might be up your alley, or you can specify the type of position you were hoping to find in their company. Even if you interviewed with an employer, reach out to them and get feedback on why they didn't hire you. If they chose a more experienced candidate, for example, maybe they have an open position that is a better fit with your qualifications.

4. Instead of focusing on your strengths ... try strengthening your weaknesses

While you should focus on what things you do well, consider that those aren't the things that need work. After all, it's not like you aren't getting a job because you are so good at something, right? Say, for example, that you know you look good on paper and you get a lot of interviews -- but nothing pans out after that. One might guess that your interview skills aren't up to speed. Instead of trying to "fix" something that works (your résumé and cover letter), try spending more time perfecting your interview skills. Review questions you've been asked in interviews before and had a hard time answering, and work through answers to questions you'll be asked all the time, like, "Tell me about yourself," or "Where do you see yourself in five years?"

5. Instead of waiting for a full-time job ... try looking for something in the interim

While most people might prefer to lock down a full-time job, these types of jobs are not abundant right now. Try expanding your search to something temporary or part time. Any kind of work, no matter how many hours you put in, will help you build up your skill set, which can only benefit you in your search for a full-time job. Not to mention, any new supervisors or co-workers that you meet will likely serve as a reference or at least part of your network in the future. Lastly, if you're able to land a part-time gig in an area that interests you and in which you excel, it could lead to a full-time job.

How to Turn Your Internship Into a Full-Time Job

Young job seekers who can't seem to land full-time employment may want to tap into a segment of the job market that is always recommended, but often overlooked: internships.

Internships have always been encouraged among college students and recent graduates, but they've never been more important than in the current economy. In this competitive job market, the first thing employers are looking for is relevant experience. Internships help not only to build skill sets and establish successful track records, but they offer great networking opportunities to land a full-time position after graduation.

Fifty-nine percent of employers said they are likely to hire their college interns as full-time, permanent employees.

Earning money vs  experience

For employers, the most valuable part of an internship is providing young people with real-world experience, as well as an enhanced skill set. But for the interns, the most valuable part also includes the contribution an internship makes to their bank accounts.

What are employers looking for?

Many students in internships don't know what hiring managers are looking for in potential full-time candidates. When asked which factors were among the most important in influencing their decision to hire a college intern permanently, employers cited the candidate's aptitude to produce timely, quality work (77 percent); critical-thinking and problem-solving skills (76 percent); and level of professionalism (73 percent).

If you're looking to turn your internship into a full-time gig, here are five tips to help you:

1. Treat your internship like an extended job interview -- because it is. Arrive on time, beat (or at the very least meet) deadlines and consistently deliver strong work.

2. Seek out challenges -- Employers want employees who show initiative and a desire to learn and develop. The majority of employers (59 percent) are more likely to permanently hire a college intern who asks for more responsibilities.

3. Ask good questions -- Employers know you don't have all the answers. In fact, 46 percent said candidates who come to them with thoughtful questions have a better chance of getting hired full time.

4. Remember the golden rule -- Always be respectful, address co-workers courteously and don't get caught up in office gossip.

5. Leave a positive impression -- Show enthusiasm for the projects you're working on and the company overall; don't complain; and refrain from e-mailing or talking to friends.
