Tanzanian and Japanese athletes run for peace with Burundian refugees
MTABILA REFUGEE CAMP, Tanzania, February 13, 2009 (UNHCR) – Juma Ikangaa and Toshihiko Seko used to face off against each other in athletics meetings and road marathons around the world. On Thursday, the former world-class track runners reunited on the red laterite soil of a refugee camp in the heart of Africa and took part in a race to promote peace and oppose sexual violence.
"Last year, I was at the Olympic Games in Beijing. Under the slogan "One World, One Dream," athletes and visitors from all over the world were united around sport. Today, I am here with the same message of peace and team spirit," 51-year-old Ikangaa told the scores of refugees and visitors who joined him in the five-kilometre-long "Ekiden for Peace" race.
The UN refugee agency and its Canadian-based implementing partner, Right to Play, organized the Ekiden – the Japanese name for a long-distance relay race – around Mtabila Camp, which is home to some 40,000 Burundian refugees who fled their homeland in the 1990s.
An Ekiden race does not require batons or special equipment. It only needs tasuki [sashes] to pass from one runner to the next, so it was seen as an ideal team sport in a refugee camp situation.
More than 160 people took part, including refugees young and old, volunteers from Japan's Waseda University, government officials, aid workers and UNHCR staff, led by Representative Yacoub El Hillo.
Ikangaa and Seko set the pace as relays of runners snaked through the narrow paths that criss-cross the camp in the hills of north-west Tanzania. "Ekiden is a very popular sport in Japan," said Seko, 52, who took part in two Olympics in the 1980s and won the Boston (twice) and London marathons during his running career. "I came to Tanzania to share this traditional team sport with you in order to promote peace and non-violence," he added.
Alphonse Nyanburi, a primary school teacher in the camp, said he had encouraged his pupils to take part. "Sport is important," he said. "It shows a decent life is possible in the camp." This is a sentiment shared by UNHCR, whose internet-based ninemillion.org campaign is aimed at ensuring education and sport opportunities for all refuge children.
A first Ekiden for Peace charity run was held last September at Japan's fabled Mount Fuji with the aim of gaining moral and material support from the Japanese public for refugees worldwide, particularly the Burundians in Tanzania.
Since 2002, UNHCR has assisted the voluntary return of some 357,000 Burundian refugees from camps in Tanzania, including 63,000 last year. In a separate repatriation launched last year for Burundians who fled their country in 1972, the agency has repatriated another 30,000 people. A further 165,000 have submitted citizenship applications, which are now under consideration by the government of Tanzania.

Edward Weston (whose invention of arc lighting, among other things, lit the Brooklyn Bridge at it's opening!)Mausoleum Newark, NJ
Here is the final resting place of Edward Weston, one of many great inventors to live in the city of Newark.
Born in England, Edward Weston made his career in the United States in the electroplating industry. He invented equipment to measure electric charge and improvements to battery technology. When Weston died in 1936 he had received over 300 American patents.
Less well known about Weston is that he was a philanthropist. In 1879, Weston was one of the founders of the Newark Technical School, later called the Newark College of Engineering, the forerunner of NJIT. Along with Louis Bamberger, Felix Fuld, Wallace Scudder, and Franklin Conklin, Edward Weston donated money for the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts to buy land in the Warren County and Sussex County for summer camps.
In his will, Weston remembered Newark by donating his whole scientific library and his early scientific instruments, to the Newark College of Engineering. Weston's gift of 15,000 books tripled the College of Engineering's library.
Weston's success with his pioneering measuring instruments has perhaps obscured his early research into lighting equipment. After emigrating to the US in 1870, Weston found a job in the electroplating industry, and made many improvements in the processes used. He realized that a constant source of current was required for quality plating, and the batteries used at the time were not sufficient for the job. After the first company he worked for went out of business, Weston had a short career as a photographer, but returned to the plating industry in 1872, opening a business in partnership with George G. Harris. In 1873 he developed his first dynamo for electroplating, and by 1875 he had moved to New Jersey, in business for himself making dynamos. One of Weston's dynamos, running electric arc lamps, was shown at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1876, but it received little attention. Shortly after this, Weston was contacted by Frederick Stevens, who offered Weston the opportunity to set up a dynamo division of his Steven, Roberts & Havell company. In 1877 the division was organized as a separate company, the Weston Dynamo Machine Company, in Newark, New Jersey.
Weston had first used a carbon arc lamp in his own shop in 1874, run by his plating dynamo, and he continued to research lighting equipment. By 1877 he had made many developments in arc lighting and in 1878 he put an arc light on the Newark Fire Department's watchtower in the center of town. Publicity from this led to an order from the city for lighting Military Park, and this was followed in 1879 by an installation in Boston's Forest Garden. In 1880 the firm's name was changed to the Weston Electric Light Company, which became a leader in the supply of arc lighting systems, providing the lighting for the new Brooklyn Bridge when it opened in 1883.
