Beyoncé and Jay-Z are billionaires!

They’d already been dubbed the king and queen of hip-hop, well it turns out they really are just that rich.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z are now worth 1 billion dollars according to the International Business Times, making them pop music’s first billionaire couple!

Jay-Z has sold 50 million albums worldwide but is topped by his missus, who’s sold over 75 million. They aren’t just top-selling artists, however, they’re also a power couple, savvy business people who know how to market their image.

Jay-Z was recently named hip-hop’s second richest artist behind Diddy, with a net worth of 460 million dollars, thanks to his highly successful Watch The Throne Tour, Live Nation deal, his 40/40 club chain. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. He’s now looking to sell his stake in the Brooklyn Nets to pursue his dream of becoming a sports agent with his new venture Roc Nation Sports. He already represents some of the hottest acts via his entertainment company Roc Nation.

In addition to being a brand ambassador for L’Oreal, Beyoncé has multi-million dollar deals with Pepsi and H&M, and will reportedly earn approximately 116 million dollars thanks to her Mrs. Carter Tour. She has her own fashion line, House of Dereon, and recently joined Gucci’s Chime For Change campaign that aims to empower women around the world.

The highest paid celebrity couple of 2012 is now looking to buy their very own island. Why not after all? They can certainly afford it!

Dawa za kuongeza akili zaingia nchini

Mtindo wa maisha, ulaji na msongo wa mawazo, vimewasababishia Watanzania wengi maradhi lukuki hata vifo.

Hata hivyo, wataalamu wa afya kutoka Afrika Kusini wamekuja na dawa maalumu, zilizo na uwezo wa kurudisha kumbukumbu, kuongeza upeo darasani, kuondoa sumu mwilini na kumfanya mzee kuonekana kijana.

Dawa hizo zinazotumia vitamini zilizomo kwenye vyakula vya kila siku, zina uwezo wa kuongeza kiwango cha uelewa kwa mwanafunzi au mfanyakazi.

Kiwango hicho cha uelewa kitaalamu unatambulika kama ‘IQ’.

Mratibu wa dawa hizo hapa nchini, John Haule anasema kuwa dawa hizo zina uwezo wa kufanya kazi kwa haraka.

“Virutubisho hivi ni vizuri kwa wale wanaokwenda katika mitihani au wanataka kufanya kazi inayohitaji umakini wa hali ya juu,” anasema Haule na kuongeza: “Zimetengenezwa kwa vyakula tunavyotumia na siyo kemikali.”

Haule ambaye ni mtaalamu wa tiba asili na mimea anasema kwamba mtindo wa maisha na vyakula vinavyoliwa na watu mara kwa mara kwa sasa huufanya mwili kuhifadhi sumu nyingi mwilini.

Anasema kuwa dawa hizo pia zina uwezo kuondoa sumu mwilini na kuufanya mwili wa binadamu kurejesha rangi yake halisi na kumeng’enya vizuri chakula anachokula.

Haule anayefanya kazi pamoja na Shirika la Nativa linalotengeneza dawa hizo la nchini Afrika Kusini, anaeleza kuwa tangu kuingiza dawa hizo nchini watu wengi wamejitokeza kuzihitaji.

Ofisa Uhusiano wa Mamlaka ya Chakula na Dawa (TFDA), Gaudensia Simwanza anasema kuwa mamlaka hiyo inazitambua dawa hizo kama virutubisho vya chakula, zimesajiliwa na ni salama kwa binadamu.

“Tuna taarifa kuwa bidhaa za ‘Go Woman’ na ‘Go Man’ zimesajiliwa na ni salama,” anasema.

Dawa nyingine zinazotengenezwa na kampuni hiyo zimetajwa kuwa na uwezo wa kuunda mifupa kwa watu wazima na majeraha ya wagonjwa wa kisukari

Chadema: Wabunge waliofukuzwa ni mashujaa

Chadema: Wabunge waliofukuzwa ni mashujaa

Dodoma: Mwenyekiti wa Chama cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo (Chadema), Freeman Mbowe amewasifu wabunge wa chama hicho waliosimamishwa huku akimshambulia Spika wa Bunge, Anne Makinda na Naibu wake, Job Ndugai kuwa wanaliendesha Bunge kiharamia.

Akizungumza jana katika uzinduzi wa Chadema kwa Kanda ya Kati, Mbowe alisema Spika Makinda amekuwa ni mwongo hata kuidanganya dunia kuwa uamuzi wao ni sahihi jambo ambalo si kweli.

“Spika Makinda ni mwongo, ameidanganya dunia na amekuwa akitumia maneno ya uongo kuhalalisha uharamia uliofanywa na Naibu Spika wa Bunge kwa kuwatoa ndani wabunge watano wa Chadema,”alisema na kuongeza:

“Uhuni kama huu ndugu zangu haukubaliki, tutaendelea kufanya kazi usiku na mchana kuhakikisha tunatetea masilahi ya nchi hii na watu wake. Na hapa natangaza mbele yenu kuwa wabunge walioondolewa ndani ya Bunge ni mashujaa,” alisisitiza Mbowe.

Mbowe ambaye ni Kiongozi wa Kambi Rasmi ya Upinzani Bungeni, aliwaambia wanachama na mashabiki wa Chadema kuwa wanafanya kazi katika mazingira magumu ndani ya Bunge na kwamba wanatakiwa kuwa majasiri wakiwa bungeni.

Alisema kwamba wakati wote wamekuwa wakishutumiwa kuwa wanafanya fujo ndani ya Bunge, jambo alilosema siyo kweli bali wao wanasimamia Kanuni za Bunge ambazo zimekuwa zikivunjwa na Spika na Naibu wake kila wanapokuwa ndani ya viti vyao.

Alisisitiza kuwa hawako tayari na kamwe hawatakuwa tayari kutii mamlaka yoyote wanayoamini kuwa inawakandamiza na kuwaondolea haki yao, zaidi ya kupambana.

Kiongozi huyo alinukuu baadhi ya vifungu vya Kanuni za Bunge alivyosema kuwa vingetumika kwa kumaliza tatizo la Lissu, aliyemwelezea kuwa alikuwa sahihi, hata angesimama mara mia moja kwa sababu alikuwa akipinga upuuzi.

Kuhusu Katiba

Akizungumzia masuala ya mchakato wa Katiba Mpya, Mbowe alisema kuwa uamuzi uliotolewa ndani ya Bunge katika hotuba yake ndiyo msimamo wa Chadema, akatahadharisha kuwa ikiwa Serikali haitakubali kufanya marekebisho waliyopendekeza, chama hicho kitajitoa.

“Ule ulikuwa ni msimamo wa Kamati Kuu ya chama chetu na bado tunasisitiza kuwa wasipokuwa makini tutajitoa. Kama noma na iwe noma, hata kama uchaguzi, tutashinda kwa nguvu ya Mungu,” alisema na kushangiliwa na umati wa watu.

Hata hivyo, alionya kuwa kama Serikali itapuuza ushauri wao, itaisoma namba kwa kuwa wanajua kinachotaka kufanywa na tayari wameshajipanga kukabiliana nacho.
