አዲስ አበባ ዩኒቨርስቲ ከስፔን ብሔራዊ የምርምር ምክር ቤት /CSIC/ጋር በመሆን ውኃ ውስጥ ያለውን የፍሎራይድ ኬሚካል ዚዮላይት በተሰኘ ንጥረ ነገር ማጣራት የሚያስችል አዲስ ቴክኖሎጂ ማግኘቱን አስታወቀ።

የቴክኖሎጂ ግኝቱም ከአዕምሯዊ ንብረት ጽህፈት ቤት ለአዲስ አበባ ዩኒቨርስቲ የባለቤትነት መብት ተሰጥቶታል።
በዩኒቨርስቲው የዩኒቨርስቲ-ኢንዱስትሪ ትስስርና የቴክኖሎጂ ሽግግር ዳይሬክተር ዶክተር መንገሻ ማሞ እንዳሉት፥ የቴክኖሎጂ ግኝቱ ዩኒቨርስቲው የሚያደርገው ችግር ፈቺ የምርምር ሥራ አካል ነው።
በኢትዮጵያ ስምጥ ሸለቆ ክፍል የሚገኘው የከርሰ ምድር ውኃ ከፍተኛ መጠን የፍሎራይድ ኬሚካል እንዳለው የገለጹት ዶክተር መንገሻ፥ ይኸው ኬሚካል በሰው ጥርስና አጥንት ላይ ጉዳት እንደሚያደርስ ገልጸዋል።
ፍሎራይድ በተፈጥሯዊ ስነ-ምህዳር ከሚመነጩ ኬሚካሎች አንዱ ሲሆን ከመጠን ያለፈ ፍሎራይድ በመጠጥ ውኃ አማካኝነት ሲወሰድ በሰዎች ጤንነት ላይ በተለይም በጥርስና አጥንት ላይ ከፍተኛ ጉዳት እንደሚያስከትልም ነው  ዳይሬክተሩ  ያስረዱት።
የዓለም የጤና ድርጅት የጥርስ ፍሎሮሲስን ለመቀነስ እንደ አካባቢው የሙቀት መጠን ቢለያይም በአንድ ሊትር ውኃ የፍሎራይድ መጠን ከ 0 ነጥብ 5 እስከ 1 ነጥብ 5 መብለጥ እንደሌለበት ይመክራል።
የቴክኖሎጂ ግኝቱ ተግባር ላይ ሲውል በአገሪቱ የስምጥ ሸለቆ አካባቢ የሚኖሩ 14 ሚሊዮን ነዋሪዎች ከፍሎራይድ ነፃ የሆነ ንጹህ የመጠጥ ውኃ እንዲያገኙ የሚያስችል ነው ብለዋል።
ፍሎራይድን ለማጣራት የሚውለው ዚዮላይት የተሰኘው ንጥረ ነገር በአገር ውስጥ ከሚገኙ አለቶች በስፋት ማግኘት የሚቻል በመሆኑ በአነስተኛ ወጪ ቴክኖሎጂውን በመጠቀም የውኃ ማጣራቱ ሂደት ዘላቂነት ማረጋገጥ እንደሚቻል አመልክተዋል።
በተያያዘ ከዩኒቨርስቲው የሚወጡ አዳዲስ ምርምሮችና ቴክኖሎጂዎችን ወደ ኢንዱስትሪዎች ለማድረስና የኅብረተሰቡ ችግር እንዲፈቱ ለማስቻል ከዘርፉ ንግድና ማኅበራት ምክር ቤት ጋር ትስስር ለመፍጠር ጥረት እየተደረገ መሆኑን ገልጸዋል።

A MOBILE app developed in Scotland has the potential to help millions of farmers in East Africa.
The VetAfrica app will allow vets, farmers and others in Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and Tanzania diagnose diseases quickly and identify effective drugs.
The app was developed by Glasgow-based technology company Cojengo, in partnership with software giant Microsoft and its 4Afrika initiative. Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the company was a "shining example" of a new generation of creative Scottish companies.

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia  Export of oilseeds has become the biggest foreign exchange earner for Ethiopiaovertaking coffee, the country’s number one export item for decades.
A ten-month performance report obtained from the Ministry of Trade (MoT) reveals that Ethiopia obtained just under 585 million USD from export of oilseeds, knocking coffee off its perch for the first time. In contrast, coffee generated 489.28 million USD during the same period.
The country exported over 404 thousand tons of oilseeds during the first ten months of the budget year, a rise of over 10 per cent compared to the same period last year. The revenue obtained also showed a growth of 52 per cent compared to the same period last year.
The achievement is over 95 per cent of the revenue the ministry projected to obtain during the period.
However, the picture is rather gloomy for coffee. The ministry projected to obtain 822.08 million USD during the first ten months but achieved about 60 per cent of the target.
When compared to the previous budget year, export performance of coffee in the first ten months of this budget year showed a decline of 8.7 per cent and 15 per cent in amount exported and revenue generated, respectively.
The overall export performance saw the country earn 2.6 billion USD during the ten months of the budget year, registering a growth of 4.8 per cent from last year.

The second Alle Bejimla wholesale cash & carry store opened at Kaliti on Wednesday, June 25, 2014, with the third, at Merkato, to follow on July 2, 2014. The cost to the government of setting up the three stores has reached 26 million Br.
A profit making state venture under the Ethiopian Trading Enterprise (ETE), with the trade name Alle Bejimla, which literally translates as “wholesale available” commenced operations on May 26, 2014, this year, when Prime Minister Hailemariam Dessalegn inaugurated the opening of its Megenagna store.
The Kaliti store will target residents of the Akaki Kaliti and Nefas Silk Lafto districts.
The Merkato store is anticipated to be opened in front of the Khelifa Building in Somali Tera in Addis Ketema District. All three stores are using facilities owned by the Merchandise Wholesale & Import Trade Enterprise (MEWITE).
The ETE has set out to set up 36 wholesale stores in 27 cities, with a demographic figure of more than 100,000, Nuredin Mohammud, acting general manager of Alle said. There is, however, a plan to open more stores in Shashemene and Hawassa in the near future, he added. These cities were chosen as Alle’s early destinations for their viable trade mobilisation and national diversification, according to Nuredin.
The Enterprise, a profit making business establishment, is responsible to the Ministry of Trade (MoT). It works hand in hand with the private sector to curb unfair competition and foster a modern trading system, maintaining relatively reasonable prices and thereby lowering inflation, he says.
Alle offers locally and internationally sourced products, with 60pc of the goods in store  purchased from local producers and manufacturers.
Customers are to comply with the terms and conditions laid down by Alle to have transactions with it. There are about 13 terms and conditions, which serve as a prerequisite to conducting business with Alle Bejimila. These include TIN number, verified commercial address and willingness to distribute commodities at prices set by Alle. Alle has deployed 175 workers at the two stores now open.
Girma Woldegiorgis, former president of Ethiopia, said this while explaining the reasons behind the disinterest of the ruling elite in the separation of civil service and partisan politics. Girma noted that this is a must, even if the ruling elite does not support it, in his exclusive interview with Yegna Press – an Amharic weekly- published on Wednesday, June 25, 2014.
