In 2007 the New7Wonders Foundation contracted a partnership with the United Nations in recognition of the efforts to promote the UN's Millennium Development Goals". The UN stated:
However, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), in a press release on June 20, 2007, reaffirmed that it has no link with the "private initiative". The press release concluded:
|“||There is no comparison between Mr. Weber's mediatised campaign and the scientific and educational work resulting from the inscription of sites on UNESCO's World Heritage List. The list of the 7 New Wonders of the World will be the result of a private undertaking, reflecting only the opinions of those with access to the Internet and not the entire world. This initiative cannot, in any significant and sustainable manner, contribute to the preservation of sites elected by this public.||”|
EgyptEgyptian commentators viewed it as competition to the status of the Great Pyramid of Giza, the only surviving monument of the original Ancient Wonders. "This is probably a conspiracy against Egypt, its civilization and monuments", wrote editorialist Al-Sayed al-Naggar in a leading state-owned daily. Egyptian Culture Minister Farouq Hosni said the project was "absurd" and described its creator, Weber, as a man "concerned primarily with self-promotion". Nagib Amin, an Egyptian expert on World Heritage Sites, has pointed out that "in addition to the commercial aspect, the vote has no scientific basis."
After the complaints from Egypt, the New7Wonders Foundation designated the Pyramids of Giza — the only remaining of the 7 Ancient Wonders of the World — as an Honorary New7Wonders Candidate, and removed them from the voting. However the Great Pyramid of Giza is not featured in their official results
Additionally, leading corporate sponsors including Banco Bradesco and Rede Globo spent millions of reais in the effort to have the statue voted into the top seven. Newsweek reports the campaign was so pervasive that:
This number is estimated as the New7Wonders Foundation never released such details about the campaign.

The rise of injecting drug use in east Africa: a case study from Kenya
Studies on injecting drug use in East Africa are reviewed. The existingstudies document the spread of heroin injection in Kenya and Tanzania, both countries where HIV rates are high. No data from Uganda on injecting drug use was found by the authors. A case study of the growth of heroin injection in a Kenyan coastal town is presented. The need for needle-exchange programmes and other prevention services is discussed. lthough bearing the brunt of the AIDS epidemic, Africa has long been considered largely free of injection drug use. Notwithstanding the assessments of the UN International Drug Control Programme 1, international organisations have been slow to recognise either the spread of heroin use in Kenya or the existence of injection drug use. The largely unheeded spread of injection drug use in East Africa has wide implications for public health in the region. Injection drug users (IDU) are a 'high risk' or 'core group' for HIV infection. Many IDU share needles and syringes as well as having unprotected sex, and have been identified as a 'bridging population', speeding the spread of HIV to the general population [and .
Heroin injection now appears to be occurring in most large towns of Kenya and Tanzania. A study of 336 heroin users in Nairobi, Kenya found that 44.9% were, or had been, injectors Of 101 current injectors, 52.5% were HIV positive.

Chuo cha mifugo Tengeru na vyuo vingine vya mifugo kwasasa vimebadili mfumo na kuwa mfumo wa chuo
kimoja chenye matawi yaani CAMPUS pia imebadili jina na sasa chuo cha mifugo tengeru kinatambulika kama LITA yaani Livestock Training Agency TENGERU Campus. mfumo huu unalengo la kujaribu kuboresha zaidi mfumo wa vyuo vya mifugo Tanzania. Ni jambo zuri kuweka mfumo kama huo japo mwanzo utakuwa mgumu hasa kwa mfumo wa mitihani na ufundishaji kutoka term hadi semester ambayo ukifeli katika semester husika unakuwa umediscolify (DISCO) Na hii binafsi ninawasiwasi sana na serikali kupata hasara kwa wale ambao wanasoma kwa kutegemea sponsor kutoka serikalini kwani inapotokea wamefeli kama watu 20 au zaidi jambo ambalo linawezekana kutokana na idadi ya wanafunzi ilhali washalipa ada yake halafu anarudi nyumbani sifuri. sina uhakika sana lakini tuombe MUNGU yasiwakute wahusikahawa.
