Sudan, Africa’s largest country, is in the final run-up to a critical referendum on independence for the oil-rich south in January 9, 2011 that seems certain to split the war-scarred state.

Time to get your wallet out: only two more weeks before Christmas. It’s that time of the year again, when miracle happens: mean people become somehow friendly, crazy drivers become tolerant of others, people actually smile at you without reasons, and somehow we all truly believe that we have unlimited cash on our bank accounts to buy everyone a gift in this world.

First of all, secrets are very destructive, whether the topic is abuse, addiction, or sexual affairs. Secrets within families are responsible for many of our psychological and emotional problems. With secrets in the way, family problems do not get addressed.

GENERALLY, I TRY TO STAY AWAY from Natural on Tanzanian issues and keep to writing essays on subjects that interest me. However, on this issue, the issue of Tanzanian women going wild in the Americas I feel an investment to say my two pennies piece.
