Mountain gorillas are threatened bydeforestation as the region’s growinghuman population competes for resources.(Image: Craig R. Sholley, AWF) MEDIA CONTACTS • Faustin KarasiraKwita Izina coordinator+250 57 65 14 or +250 08 35 50 53Janine ErasmusRwanda’s annual baby gorilla naming ceremony took place earlier in June, with 18 of the endangered primate babies receiving names.The Kwita Izina is the annual national festival that brings conservationists and gorilla enthusiasts from all over the world, to the village of Kinigi, located in Musanze District, at the foot of the Virunga Mountains in the north of the country.This year’s event, the sixth edition, attracted not only visitors from China, Japan and the US, but also high-profile guests including Rwandan president Paul Kagame, the UN Environmental Programme’s (UNEP) executive director Achim Steiner, and American actor Don Cheadle, star of the 2004 genocide-focused hit Hotel Rwanda and a Goodwill Ambassador for UNEP.The 2010 World Environment Day was also celebrated at the event.“We believe that protecting the environment entails, among other things, empowering communities so that they change their attitudes and find alternative livelihoods that can promote sustainable and equitable development. And we are making headway,” said Kagame.Naming the gorillasThe baby gorillas born in the first half of 2010 were named Agashya, Agatako, Gasore, Icyamamare, Igihembo, Imbuto, Inshuti, Inyungu, Isabukuru, Isoko, Murakaza, Ntambara, Teta, Turate, Ubuhamya, Umurage, Wakawaka, and Zoya,Various agencies and governments were allotted their own gorilla – the Democratic Republic of Congo named its gorilla Igihembo (gift); while the Ugandan gorilla was named Isabukuru (anniversary). The US government named its gorilla Ubuhamya (testimony), and the Energy Globe Award named its baby Gasore (young man).The Rwandan Speaker of Parliament Rose Mukantabana named a baby Icyamamare (celebrity), and UNEP’s gorilla was named Umurage (legacy).Internet users from across the world were also given a chance to vote for a name through the UNEP’s website. Of the four suggestions – Yoda, Zoya, Ijabo and Hitamo – the people’s choice was Zoya.The world’s children, too, were given an opportunity to choose a name, and they voted for “Wakawaka”, which means “to light up” in Swahili. The term is also the title of the official 2010 Fifa World Cup song, which is performed by Colombian singer Shakira and South African outfit Freshlyground.“The US is trailing, in this regard, behind Rwanda,” said Cheadle. “To see their ability to get ahead of the curve should be an inspiration to other countries in the world to do the same and avail themselves of the resources that they have to address this problem.”Traditional ceremonyThe Kwita Izina (to give a name) is a traditional ceremony that has existed in Rwandan culture and society for hundreds of years, and was adopted three decades ago by the Rwandan Office of Tourism and National Parks as part of its gorilla conservation strategy.The ceremony remained an internal function until 2005 when the organisation decided to launch it internationally, with the aim of promoting awareness of the plight of the mountain gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei), one of the two Eastern gorilla subspecies, and the desperate need to protect them. The ceremony took its official name, Kwita Izina, in 2007.The theme of the inaugural event was “Ensure the future of the mountain gorillas of Rwanda”. The next year’s theme was “Recognise the role of the international tourists who selected Rwanda as destination” while the theme for 2007 was “Caring for wildlife concerns us all”. The theme for 2008 was “Working together to conserve our wildlife”.At the first five events 30, 12, 23, 20, and 18 mountain gorillas received names respectively. Last year’s event coincided with the UN-declared International Year of the Gorilla, and carried the theme “Celebrating the Year of the Gorilla”.The theme for 2010 was “Raising global awareness of biodiversity conservation as we give names to our baby gorillas”.Gorilla havenThe Virunga Mountains span three countries. They are a branch of the Albertine Rift, part of East Africa’s Great Rift Valley, and feature eight volcanoes, of which six are dormant. There are three national parks within the range – the Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo; the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda; and the Mgahinga Gorilla National Park in UgandaThe Virungas are famous as the last haven on earth for the mountain gorilla, which is listed as endangered on the Red List of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. About 750 individuals still exist, more than half in Virunga National Park and the rest in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, about 35km away – there is speculation that this population might be a separate subspecies, but to date this has not been established.The Karisoke Research Centre, established by renowned primatologist Dian Fossey in 1967, is here in the Volcanoes National Park. The facility takes its name from the two peaks between which it sits – Mount Karisimbi and Mount Visoke.Karisoke holds a massive amount of priceless data on mountain gorillas in its 40-year-old database, including information on gorilla behaviour and everyday life, their habitats, and conversation efforts and results.

College basketball fans, particularly student fans, have long looked for different ways to distract visiting teams during games. Some of the more creative methods have been displayed when opponents go to the line to attempt free throws, and such was the case with some fans at Davidson during last night’s game against Dayton. With 7:16 remaining in the game, and Davidson leading 66-49, Dayton shooting guard Jordan Sibert stepped up to attempt a pair of foul shots. It was then that TV cameras caught five Davidson fans, clad only in black speedos, dancing and gyrating in an attempt to throw off Sibert’s concentration.The tactic failed, as Sibert nailed both shots. Still, the Wildcats knocked off the 22nd-ranked Flyers, 77-60, and this quintet of fans left an indelible image on the minds of anyone who saw their stunt.

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment The Danforth Music Hall hosted 202 shows this year, and hopes to continue its hot streak through its 100th anniversary in 2019. (RENE JOHNSTON / TORONTO STAR) Fans of live music have witnessed a lot of casualties on the local scene lately — with one club after another closing or threatening to — so they might understandably fear the worst.But lurking behind all the talk of a “venue crisis” — which reached a fever pitch when the beloved Silver Dollar Room went dark in May after remaining a fond fixture on the Spadina Ave. strip since 1958 — there’s also some pretty good news.We might have lost places like the Dollar, the Hoxton, the Holy Oak, the Central and the Hideout over the past year or so, and watched Hugh’s Room and Cherry Cola’s barely achieve stays of execution. Login/Register With: At the same time, though, the Horseshoe Tavern just celebrated its 70th birthday, the 69-year-old El Mocambo looks to finally reopen in the spring, and the revamped Danforth Music Hall turns 99 next year.

Visakhapatnam: Defending champions Chennai Super Kings produced a clinical performance to beat Delhi Capitals by six wickets and enter their eighth final of the Indian Premier League, here on Friday. CSK dished out a disciplined bowling and fielding effort to first restrict DC to 147 for nine and then chased down the target with ease, reaching 151 or four in 19 overs. Dwayne Bravo (2/19), Ravindra Jadeja (2/23), Deepak Chahar (2/28) and Harbhajan Singh (2/31) shared eight wickets between them to keep DC in check after opting to bowl.

The two teams have met each other thrice in summit clashes of the tournament earlier with MI finishing on the winning side twice while the Chennai outfit came out triumphant once. While CSK won the final battle in 2010, MI finished on the victorious side in 2013 and 2015. Chasing the modest total, Faf du Plessis (50 off 39 balls; 7x4s, 1×60 and Shane Watson (50 off 32; 3x4s, 4x6s) got CSK off to a flier, stitching 81 runs in 10.2 overs. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai MastersThe duo started cautiously before opening up to not allow any DC bowler to settle down. Du Plessis was the aggressor among the duo, scoring 50 off 39 balls with the help of seven boundaries and one six while Watson played the second fiddle initially. But just after notching up his 12th IPL fifty, Du Plessis departed while going for a big shot over deep square-leg off Trent Boult (1/20), only to be holed out by Keemo Paul. After Du Plessis’ dismissal, Watson took the centrestage and struck Paul for one four and three sixes to pile up 25 runs off the 12th over and also registered his half-century off 31 balls in the process. Watson looked in a hurry to finish off the chase and that eventually led to his downfall, caught by Boult off Amit Mishra (1/21) in the second ball of the next over. Suresh Raina (11) and skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (9) got out cheaply but Ambati Rayudu (2 not out) remained at the crease to ensure a comfortable win for the three-time champions. Earlier sent into bat, DC made a shaky start with Prithvi Shaw (5) and Shikhar Dhawan (18 off 14) adding 21 runs in 2.3 overs before the former was caught plumb in front of the wicket by Chahar. Shaw’s dismissal opened the floodgates as DC lost three wickets in quick time to slump to 75 for four in 11.3 overs. Dhawan was the next to depart, caught by Dhoni off Harbhajan and then Colin Munro (27) was holed at deep square-leg by Bravo off Jadeja as the South African went for a slog sweep. Skipper Shreyas Iyer (13 of 18) tried to anchor the innings but he too fell while going for a big shot, caught by Raina off Imran Tahir (1/28) in the 12th over. Brief Scores: DC: 147/9 in 20 overs (Pant 38; Bravo 2/19, Jadeja 2/23, Chahar 2/28, Harbhajan 2/31) vs CSK: 151/4 in 19 overs (Faf 50, Watson 50; Boult 1/20).
