mounting effective opposition to the military regime from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s “Indeed the NLC was banned between 1994 and 1998 and its offices occupied by an administrator appointed by the military through which the complete destabilisation of the labour movement was achieved and from which it took many years to begin to recover” he said On why the Labour Party formed by the movement in 2000-2004 has not fared well the former INEC boss stated that only political parties with broad popular appeal could win elections in the country He explained that it was difficult for a single modular political platform that appeal to a dispersed small segment of the voting population to capture political power in a country like Nigeria “The chances of victory are better with a political platform that has a broad popular appeal that is not politically or even economically sectional; and that is above all with concrete potential benefits for overwhelming majority of citizens” Jega said Reno Omokri a former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to Governor of Benue State Samuel Ortom’s quitting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) DAILY POST recalls that Ortom at the banquet hall of the Government House in Makurdi on Monday announced that he is no longer with the APC Ortom stated this while swearing in the newly appointed Special Adviser on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs Jerome Torshimbe disclosing that the APC had given him ‘red card’ to quit the party Reacting through his Twitter page Omokri commended Ortom for dumping APC He wrote “I commend Benue State Governor Sam Ortom for officially dumping @OfficialAPCNg today He and the people of Benue don’t belong in a party like APC that is conducive to poverty atrocity and animosity “They need prosperity sincerity and respectability Benue needs @OfficialPDPNig”

earlier this week it was clear she wasnt the only casualty of the trap – she was pregnant with two cubs Credit: BarcroftThe big cat was found in a ravine in the province of Riau Indonesia days after being caught in the trap Authorities believe the mother-to-be was carrying two unborn cubs one male and one female both of whom were lost Ultimately she died from a ruptured kidney after actually managing to escape from the trap but part of the snare stayed wrapped around her body She was found by authorities about 150 metres from where the trap had been setCredit: GettyThe New York Times reports that the head of a local wildlife conservation named Suharyono said: "We deeply regret the death of the protected animal "The tiger was pregnant with male and female cubs" It was confirmed by officers that they have detained the person that set the trap Sumatran tigers are the most critically endangered tiger subspecies with numbers estimated to have dwindled to a devastating 400Earlier in the year villagers in northern Indonesia slaughtered a tiger as they reportedly believed it was a supernatural creature Because the tiger had mauled at least one resident in the village in North Sumatra and villagers thought it was a Siluman – a shapeshifting spirit Tragically the poor creatures body was found completely disemboweled and hung on a wooden plank from the ceiling of a public hall in the village There is an estimated 40 Sumatran tigers killed per year for the illegal animal trade giving a clear indication of the extent of the damage inflicted on endangered species by poaching But despite the evident problems created by poaching the accelerated loss of habitat is more of an immediate threat to the animals The WWF reported deforestation transforms the tigers wooded

we’d have boots on the Red Planet as early as 1975 So… how’d that work out The problem has been partly a lack of will partly a lack of wallet and partly that getting to Mars is vastly dauntingly harder than getting to the moonlargely because it’s so far away At its absolute farthest the moon is about 250000 miles (402000 km) from Earth The corresponding figure for Mars is 250 million Still NASA is hard at work on the problem Astronauts are spending a year at a time aboard the International Space Station to study the impact of extended exposure to zero-gravity on the human body Earth-based crews are investigating the psychological impact by serving similar long-duration rotations on the ground as TIME explored in this week’s magazine with an overnight stay at a simulated Mars base in Hawaii While a trip to Mars still won’t happen before at least the 2030s we now know how we’d fly the route and the ships and machines we’d need if we finally go The workhorse for a journey to Mars would be NASA’s new Space Launch System (SLS) which basically means the rocket There are two types of SLS’s now being built: a smaller one capable of carrying about 70 metric tons of payload and putting crews in low Earth orbit and a heavy-lift model that can loft nearly twice as much weight Before any astronauts leave the ground a number of heavy-lift SLS’s would go up parking essential hardware along the route to Mars The crew that follows would likely be made up of four people and include one or more astronauts from at least one of the partner countries that would be sharing the work and the cost of the Mars mission The astronauts would take off atop a smaller SLS that would carry them into space in their Orion spacecraft a sort of 21st century Apollo moon ship also under construction The crew would stay briefly in Earth orbit to check out their systems and then blast out on their seven-month flight to Marsbut they’d need to make a detour first Just three days after launching they would swing by the moon and pick up a bus-sized habitation module that a heavy-lift SLS would have left parked in lunar orbit That’s critical because while Orion with an interior volume larger than the old Apollos would be fine for a short journey the crew needs a good deal more room to move around for an interplanetary flight When the astronauts arrived at Mars on what NASA expects to be the 217th day of their trip they would find a descent module similar to the insectile lunar module waiting for them in orbitalso left by an SLS All four crew-members would climb aboard and descend to the surface One of themsomeone whose identity is impossible to know right now but who is likely a late teen or young adult at large in the world alreadywould become the first person on Mars For this initial visit the stay on Mars may be relatively shortjust 30 days or less That’s because the distance between Mars and Earth changes all the time depending where they are in their respective orbitswith that 250 million mile gap sometimes shrinking to as little as 34 million mi (55 million km) The crew would leave Earth as one of those close alignments is approaching and then leave Mars before the gap grows too wide again Tarry more than 30 days on the Martian surface and you’re stuck for a year waiting for the favorable planetary conjunction to recur The astronauts would leave Mars aboard an ascent module also placed there in advance Once back in Mars orbit they would link up with Orion and the habitation module jettison the ascent module and light out for home As they approached the moon seven months later they would drop off the habitation module for use by the next crew fly the rest of the way home and splash down in their Orion spacecraft 651 days after leaving Earth All that at least is the way things are supposed to go but there’s a lot of metal to cut and hardware to buildto say nothing of money to allocate and spendbefore human beings truly do become an interplanetary species As in the old Apollo days however we now have the target in our sights and are at long last doing the hard work of trying to hit it
