Engineer found near engine of upturned vessel, which sank on Lake Victoria

Navy divers resumed the search operation inside the sunken MV Nyerere early on Saturday after hearing sounds that suggested signs of life. They pulled a man out of the overturned ship and he was taken to hospital, a witness said, while bodies continued to float to the surface around the vessel.
Tanzania‚Äôs president, John Magufuli, has ordered the arrest of the managers of the ferry, which may have been carrying as many as 300 people when it capsized near the dock on the Ukara Island. The precise number was unknown, however, because the ticket-seller had drowned and the machine recording sales had not been found.
During a speech on public television on Friday night, Magufuli referred to negligence and said he had ordered the arrest of all those involved in the management of the ferry. ‚ÄúIt appears clear that the ferry was overloaded,‚ÄĚ he said, adding that the arrests had already begun.
The president also declared four days of national mourning.
The works, transport and communication minister, Isack Kamwelwe, said the government was sending sophisticated equipment to aid the rescue. ‚ÄúThis equipment will increase efficiency in the rescue operation and we will continue with the search until we are satisfied that we have rescued everyone,‚ÄĚ he told Reuters. At least 40 people were brought to safety on Thursday as dozens of security forces and volunteers wearing gloves and face masks spent the day hauling bodies into wooden boats.
Tanzanian ferries often carry hundreds of passengers and are overcrowded, and there are shifts in weight as passengers move to disembark. The Nyerere was crowded because it was a market day.

Roads and venues remain unbuilt as the southern Italian city struggles to be the 2019 capital of culture
When the southern Italian city of Matera found out it had been selected as the 2019 European capital of culture, its ancient streets echoed with cheers. Thousands gathered in October 2014 to watch the announcement live from Brussels in a central piazza. ‚ÄúIt reminded me of the day when Napoli announced it had acquired Diego Maradona,‚ÄĚ said Daniele Kihlgren, an Italian-Swedish businessman who has invested in a hotel in Matera. ‚ÄúThe same uproar was heard throughout the town.‚ÄĚ

The deputy leader insists that the party can be unified and says MPs who oppose Jeremy Corbyn must stay and fight
Tom Watson is a peculiarity. Labour‚Äôs deputy leader is the only nonbeliever who was in Jeremy Corbyn‚Äôs first shadow cabinet and is still sitting there ‚Äď much turmoil and many waves of resignations later.
This does not mean he is trusted by the Corbynites, many of whom have regarded him as a sworn enemy since the attempt to oust the Labour leader two summers ago. Yet Watson insists that their relationship is a good one. ‚ÄúDespite what people say. We text regularly. We talk about the kids. We usually have a lot of football talk. One thing we agree on is that we should spend less time in each other‚Äôs company at NEC [national executive committee] meetings, because the last one was nine and a half hours and it was torture.‚ÄĚ Continue reading...

Improved nutrition and access to water among factors that have added 11 years to average lifespan in a generation
People in sub-Saharan African can expect to live for 11 years longer than the generation that went before them, new statistics show.

The number of years children typically spend in school has also increased across the region, growing 14% over the past decade. Continue reading...
Save the Children says two thirds of infants in conflict zones are not being treated for life-threatening hunger
Starvation being used as a weapon of war has become the new normal, according to Save the Children. Its analysis shows more than half a million infants in conflict zones could die of malnutrition by the end of the year if they do not receive treatment, the equivalent of one every minute.
The charity makes its own estimates using UN data, and projects that 4.5 million under-fives will need treatment for life-threatening hunger this year in the most dangerous conflict zones ‚Äď an increase of 20% since 2016. At current rates, only one in three will receive treatment, and 590,000 could die as a result. Continue reading...

The US president will lead a crucial assembly in New York, raising fears of global backlash over Iran
In medieval English folklore, the lord of misrule was an anarchic, half-crazed clown who presided over an annual Feast of Fools. This week the UN security council, that most august and sober of international bodies, looks set to revive the tradition with its own riotous diplomatic banquet. In the chair and wielding the gavel for the first time: none other than Donald Trump, 45th US president, former reality TV host, and modern-day lord of misrule.
Trump will be in New York for the annual UN general assembly of world leaders. Some 84 heads of state, 44 heads of government and senior ministers from the UN‚Äôs 193 sovereign states are due to attend. Like other presidents and premiers, Trump will address the assembly on Tuesday. Last year he stole the show when he tore up protocol, threatened to ‚Äútotally destroy‚ÄĚ North Korea, and mocked its leader, Kim Jong-un, as ‚ÄúRocket Man on a suicide mission‚ÄĚ ‚Äď before performing a dizzying U-turn this year.

In an age of wild claims churned out by politicians, media and advertisers, perhaps people don‚Äôt care as much any more
This month, the two major online sites for reporting UFOs ‚Äď the National UFO Reporting Center and the Mutual UFO Network ‚Äď both documented steep drops in worldwide sightings. The declines started around 2014, when reports were at a peak. They have since reduced drastically to 55% of that year‚Äôs combined total, many UFO interest groups have folded, and numerous previously classified government documents have been disclosed.
Do these declines reveal that UFO interest is becoming a blip on the human cultural radar? Perhaps UFO and alien lore is seeming more like a reflection of human culture, tied to the space age, motivated by conquering new existential frontiers. Continue reading...
