Female Kenyan MPs blast polygamy law

Step in the wrong direction: traditionally first wives must approve of additional wives, now an amendment to a bill that was supposed to be an improvement for women has gone sour and taken a step backwards, stating explicitly that men never need any longer to do this, nor even inform wives beforehand. This is outrageous. It affects woman, the family, and society as a whole. Very bad news.
Also, unfortunate that inheritance is limited to 30% rather than 50%, and that no rights are granted to live together couples after a set passage of time together.

Kenya to microchip all its rhinos

Dunno..sounds good, until you consider that the poachers could hack in and track the rhinos too, enabling a kill far quicker than the monitors could realize and retaking. Also, how difficult would it be too remove/disable/block a tracker, once a kill has been made.

So in this scenario, all rhinos could be made immediately and intimately vulnerable.

Hopefully, thus scenario is unable to occur, and the benefits of such a program are prudent. I applaud that people are trying..

Maybe I’ve been watching to much “24” (tv series on Netflix), but then again, there was another article today describing how hackers for two years had gained control of a shipping port, ensuring their drug trade thrived and was secure!
