So too are the large colonies of Gelada monkey that populate it. Opened in January, the Limalimo Lodge is its newest place to stay, with just 12 guestrooms constructed in the vernacular style using rammed earth, wood and thatch. Guests can spend their days exploring the vastness of the surrounding landscape with its walia ibex, leopards and Ethiopian wolves.

  • Rescued Child: Murle militia groups locked us in huts for the past four weeks

    One of the rescued 56 children this week who were abducted by Murle militia group from the Ethiopian Nuer community last month said they had been locked in huts for the past four weeks by their abductors after crossing them into South Sudan.

    Jany, 11-year old, was abducted with his two brothers and one sister, but was only among the rescued kids while his siblings had remained behind under the captivity of the Murle abductors. Jany explained to his mother, Nyandhan, how the bigger boys of his age were Rescued Child: Murle militia groups locked us in huts for the past four weekssingled out and locked alone inside huts, surrounded by heavily armed men, and given only milk to drink during their captivity. His mother, Nyandhan, however said she was happy to see one of his children back, but added that she longed to see all of them rescued, as she praised the Ethiopian troops who have crossed into South Sudan for the rescue mission.

    "I didn’t believe that I would see him [Jany] ever again," she told the BBC on Wednesday, while feeding his rescued son as she held up the plate by her hand. "I am really happy to have one of my children back. It is a blessing and it is thanks to the on-going rescue mission. I have been worrying day and night about my children, that I might never ever see them again. I am still waiting for the others," she said.

  • Elevated buses that drive over cars are in China's transportation future

    As the world's most populated country, China's gridlocked traffic is legendary, especially in major cities like Beijing and Shanghai.

    To help combat the problem of traffic jams and maximise limited road space, the country's top engineers have unveiled the Transit Elevated Bus (TEB) at the 19th China Beijing International High-Tech Expo on Sunday.

    The TEB is an electrical powered elevated buss that runs on rails and operates high above ground so cars can drive underneath it like driving through a tunnel while it transports passengers from station to station, bypassing road traffic. Each bus has a capacity of 1,200 passengers.

    In an ideal scenario, the TEB will ease China's traffic congestion, boost China's public transport system and reduce pollution.

    According to Bai Zhiming, an engineer in charge of the TEB project, this new mode of transportation functions in a similar way to the subway but it's cheaper to build and construction of the system could be completed in a year.

    However, questions still remain as to how safe the TEB will be, considering the scale model at the expo used only cars and not tall and heavy vehicles such as trucks and vans, to demonstrate how it would work.

    The demo model also lacked safety barriers that separated the cars from the bus, raising safety concerns on traffic collisions which are already common throughout the country's roads.

    CCTV reported that the TEB will undergo first runs and rigorous testing in the second half of this year. The tests are scheduled to take place in Qinhuangdao City, which is in the northeast of China's Hebei province.

    NBC has recently predicted that in 2017, all of America will be tagged with microchips. They will be implanted to help identify individuals immediately. According to the report, the technology is used to answer one question, “Am I who I say I am?”

     Some worry, however, that the RFID Microchip Implant will give the government too much power, allowing them to track every move. In some states, like Virginia, legislation is in process to stop this from happening. The report also reveals an RFID Brain Chip that has been developed and is currently being tested on several humans.

    It was reported that the use of Micro-Chips in Bill H.R. 4872 was located on Page 1014 under “National Medical Device Registry” it tells about a “Class II Device That is Implantable” and yes, they passed the bill. Read Page “1014″ In The H.R. 4872 Read Class II Special Controls Guidance For FDA Staff. With the RFID Microchip they can track the movement of the people that are implanted. They can also control the money and food of the people. It is also reported to be possible to even kill the people that don’t obey. The HR 3962 Bill is an exact copy of the HR 3200 bill in with the exception of just a few words removed concerning the RFID Microchip but the ability to Chip Every Citizen of the United States is still in the bill.
