“The Americans have made such allegations to justify their hostile policies and to raise tensions in the Persian Gulf,” Zarif told state news agency IRNA. “Increased US presence in our region is extremely dangerous and it threatens international peace and security, and this should be addressed,” he said. It follows decisions to speed up the deployment of an aircraft carrier strike group as well as to send bombers and additional Patriot missiles to the Middle East. Iran has threatened to disrupt oil shipments through the Strait of Hormuz if the United States tries to strangle Tehran’s economy by halting its oil exports through increased sanctions. Western experts say Iran often exaggerates its weapons capabilities, although there are concerns about its missile programme and particularly its long-range ballistic missiles.

Princess Diana and Margaret Thatcher rocking polkas (Courtesy)I can’t get over the fact that there’s actually an entire song about a polka dot swim suit. Apparently, the polka dot craze didn’t start then. Twenty years before, Polka Dots and Moonbeams Jimmy Van Heusen became a big hit when American jazz legend Frank Sinatra recorded it. One of her most famous photographs is when she wore a polka dot dress during her visit to Nigeria in 1988.

By SAM KIPLAGATMore by this AuthorA legal battle is looming between the National Police Service and graduate constables as the institution seeks to overturn a court’s decision directing it to promote the officers and remunerate them accordingly upon graduation. NPS, together with the National Police Service Commission, has indicated that it will appeal a decision issued this week by the Employment and Labour Relations Court. Justice Byram Ongaya ruled that NPS was discriminating against police constables who have acquired degree certificates after joining the service. The judge directed that the officers be immediately moved from Job Group F to J in the rank of inspector. Five police officers — Evans Muriuki, Ruth Odikara, David Ochom, Linet Wandia Njagi and George Barasa — filed the case, accusing NPS of discrimination.

“Clearly the biggest threat is through the escalation of trade restriction measures, and this is happening as we speak. The world economy is expected to pick up slowly next year, but only if Washington and China drop their latest tariff moves. SEE ALSO :Trump orders tariff hike on remaining Chinese importsThat kind of tariff escalation, plus the associated rise in uncertainty about a broadening of the trade war, could lop about 0.7 percent off the world economy by 2021-2022, the OECD said. Other G20 nations will be urging them to step back from the fight, chief among them Germany and Japan, two export power-houses which have much to lose from a long trade war. But over the longer term, a protracted trade war is likely to drag down the consumer economy too.

Voices Africa Day: Let’s reflect on an Africa of hope and opportunityThere is no over glamourising Africa or glossing over her many imperfections; the mirror has too many faces to be packaged so simply. And let’s face it: in Africa we have had and continue to have a fixation with what’s broken, what’s not working, why it’s not working, etc. Africa Day is a good opportunity to reflect on what there is to celebrate, explore, debate and reframe. Because businesses, especially multinationals, have some of the most unfettered access to critical thinking and learning resources. Because businesses, especially “big business”, has the ear of regulators and legislators in a way that not many other stakeholders do across the continent.

We are never in the mood, and our men are getting jittery about this,” the chairperson said as she welcomed me to address members. If the mood was foul or depressed, they lost desire and had no sex. The right mood therefore remains the paramount determinant of whether a woman will want sex or not. The big question, however, is whether men know how to bring their women back into the mood. Overall, mood is king for female sex desire, and the successful husband is one who can harness it and keep the woman in the mood for years on end.
