(trg)="1"> HLOKO YA MHAKA YA KAPA | KASI A TIKO LEGI GIYA KWIHI ?

(src)="2"> THE year 2017 began with a dismal proclamation by the scientific community .
(trg)="2"> A TITLHARI ta siyensya ti sangulile lembe ga 2017 hi ku huwelela mahungu yo chavisa .

(src)="3"> In January a group of scientists declared that the world just got closer to the worst catastrophe ever .
(trg)="3"> Hi Janeiro a ntlawa wo kari wa titlhari ta siyensya wu tiyisile lezvaku a misava yi kusuhani nguvhu ni ku lova .

(src)="4"> Using the symbolic Doomsday Clock to illustrate mankind’s proximity to a global disaster , scientists moved the clock’s minute hand forward by 30 seconds .
(trg)="4"> Na ti tirisa Wachi go fananisa ga Siku ga Kulamula kasi ku komba lezvaku a misava yontlhe yi kusuhani ni ku welwa hi mhango yo tshisa , a titlhari ta siyensya ti engetele 30 wa tisegundo ka cikhati ci nga setilwe .

(src)="5"> The Doomsday Clock is now set at merely two and a half minutes to midnight ​ — nearer to a global catastrophe than at any time in over 60 years !
(trg)="5"> Zvezvi a wachi ga siku ga kulamula gi setilwe ka ma 23 : 57 e 30 segundos — zvi kombako ku a mhango leyo yo tshisa ya misava yontlhe yi kusuhani nguvhu ku hundza ni cihi cikhati ka 60 wa malembe ma hundzileko .

(src)="6"> In 2018 , scientists plan to evaluate again how close we are to the end of the world as we know it .
(trg)="6"> A titlhari ta siyensya ti na ni makungo ya ku maha kambisiso wun’wani hi 2018 kasi ku wona ku a misava yi laha kusuhani ku ya chikela kwihi ni ku lova .

(src)="7"> Will the Doomsday Clock still signal an impending and unprecedented catastrophe ?

(src)="8"> What do you think ?
(trg)="8"> U zvi wonisa kuyini ?

(trg)="9"> Kasi a tiko legi giya kwihi ?

(src)="10"> You might find the question somewhat difficult to answer .
(trg)="10"> U nga ha ci wona kota ciwutiso co karata .

(src)="11"> After all , even experts are divided on this subject .
(trg)="11"> Hakuva hambu titlhari ta siyensya a ti zwanani ka mhaka leyi .

(src)="12"> Not everyone believes in an inevitable doomsday .
(trg)="12"> A hi vontlhe va kholwako lezvaku a misava yi ta lova .

(src)="13"> In fact , millions of people believe in a bright future .
(trg)="13"> A vanhu va timiliyoni va rindzela zvilo zva zvi nene zvi to maheka cikhatini ci tako .

(src)="14"> They profess to have evidence showing that mankind and our planet will survive indefinitely and that our quality of life will improve .

(src)="16"> Is the world out of control or not ?
(trg)="16"> Kasi a tiko legi giya kwihi ?
(trg)="17"> Gi ta pona ?

(src)="17"> “ The Doomsday Clock is an internationally recognized design that conveys how close we are to destroying our civilization with dangerous technologies of our own making .
(trg)="18"> “ A Wachi ga Siku ga Kulamula i wachi go fananisa gi vhumelwako hi matiko yo tala gi kombako ku hi kusuhani ni kuloviswa ka misava hi tikinolojiya ya mhango yi vangiwako hi hina vanhu .

(src)="18"> First and foremost among these are nuclear weapons , but the dangers include climate - changing technologies , emerging biotechnologies , and cybertechnology that could inflict irrevocable harm , whether by intention , miscalculation , or by accident , to our way of life and to the planet . ” ​ — Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists .

(src)="2"> IF YOU are apprehensive or scared outright by the barrage of bad news , you are not alone .
(trg)="2"> LOKU ku hi lezvaku wa karateka kutani kuchaviswa hi mahungu yo biha u ma zwako , a hi wena wece .

(src)="3"> In 2014 , Barack Obama , who was then president of the United States , suggested that because of all the bad things reported in the press , many conclude “ that the world is spinning . . . fast and nobody is able to control it . ”
(trg)="3"> Hi 2014 , Barack Obama loyi a nga hi hosi ya Estados Unidos , i nyikile a mawonela ya ku hi kota ya wubihi gontlhe gi haxiwako , a votala va chikelela a magumo “ yaku a misava ya cica nguvhu . . . niku a ku na munhu a nga zvi kotako ku yi wonelela . ”

(src)="4"> Yet , shortly after making that statement , he spoke passionately about current strategies to fix many of the world’s problems .
(trg)="4"> Hambulezvo cikhatanyana ndzhako ka ku wula lezvo , i wulawulile hi kuhiseka hi mizamo yi mahiwako kasi ku lulamisa a zvikarato zvo tala laha misaveni .

(src)="5"> He called certain government initiatives “ good news ” and said he was “ fundamentally hopeful ” and “ profoundly optimistic . ”
(trg)="5"> I wulile ku a mizamo ya mifumo yo kari “ mahungu yo saseka ” a tlhela aku i wa “ rindzela zva zvi nene . ”

(src)="6"> In other words , he pointed to noble human endeavors as the means to control the world and avert a global catastrophe .
(trg)="6"> Hi magezu man’wani , i wulile ku a mizamo ya vanhu yi mahiwako hi zvigelo zvi nene yi nga maha ku a misava yi nga welwi hi mhango yo tshisa .

(src)="7"> Many share his optimism .
(trg)="7"> A votala va ni mawonela yalawo .

(src)="8"> For instance , some put their trust in science , predicting rapid advancements in technologies that promise to fix the world .
(trg)="8"> Hi cikombiso , a vokari va tsumba a siyensya leyi yi tsumbisako ku lulamisa a zvikarato zva misava hi ku tirisa tekinolojiya .

(src)="9"> One expert in digital technology and innovation confidently predicted that by the year 2030 , “ our technology will be a thousand times more powerful and by 2045 , it will be a million times more powerful . ”
(trg)="9"> A tlhari yo kari ya ku kambisisa a tekinolojiya ya ku tsala ni ya ku tsamba zvilo yi wulile lezvaku lomu ka va 2030 , “ a tekinolojiya ya hina yi tava ni ntamu nguvhu niku hi va 2045 a ha ha wuli . ”

(src)="10"> He added : “ We’re doing pretty well .
(trg)="10"> I engetele aku : “ Hi maha zvilo zvo hlamalisa .

(src)="11"> While the problems we face have never been greater , our capacity to meet challenges is outpacing them . ”
(trg)="11"> Hambu lezvi hi kumanako ni zvikarato zva hombe nguvhu , hi ni ntamu wa ku zvi hlula . ”

(src)="12"> Exactly how bad are world conditions ?
(trg)="12"> Khwatsi - khwatsi a misava yi bihile a ku ya chikela kwihi ?

(src)="13"> Are we really at the brink of a great global disaster ?
(trg)="13"> Xana hakunene a misava yi laha kusuhani ni ku welwa hi mhango yo tshisa ?

(src)="14"> Although some scientists and politicians preach a hopeful message , many people still feel uncertain about the future .
(trg)="14"> Hambu lezvi a titlhari ta siyensya ni mifumo va huwelelako a mahungu ya kutsumba , a vanhu vo tala a va zvi tivi ku a tiko giya kwihi .

(trg)="18"> A ku hambana ni lezvo , a varangeli vo nonoha a va cheli kota hi milayo ya ku wonelela kumahiwa ka zvibhamu .

(src)="19"> Countries with a history of nuclear weaponry are frantically upgrading their old bombs and creating new deadlier ones .

(src)="2"> COVER SUBJECT | IS THE WORLD OUT OF CONTROL ?
(trg)="2"> HLOKO YA MHAKA YA KAPA | KASI A TIKO LEGI GIYA KWIHI ?

(src)="3"> THE dire state of the world today was foretold in the Bible many centuries ago .
(trg)="3"> A MATSHAMELA yo biha ya tiko lawa ma nga kona nyamutlha ma phrofetilwe kale lomu ka Bhibhiliya .

(src)="4"> And what is more , the Bible specifically predicted a bright future for mankind .
(trg)="4"> Niku ahandle ka lezvo , ku tlhelile ku phrofetiwa wumandziko go tsakisa lomu ka Bhibhiliya .

(src)="5"> What the Bible says should not be quickly dismissed in view of the fact that so much of what it foretells has actually been fulfilled in amazing detail .
(trg)="5"> Lezvi a Bhibhiliya gi zvi wulako a hi faneli ku hatlisela ku zvi kaneta hakuva a kutala ka lezvi gi zvi wulileko zvi kari zvi tatiseka hi ndlela yo hlamalisa .

(src)="6"> For instance , consider the following Bible prophecies :
(trg)="6"> Hi cikombiso , wona zviphrofeto zva Bhibhiliya zvi landzelako :

(src)="7"> “ Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom , and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another . ” ​ — Matthew 24 : 7 .
(trg)="7"> ‘ A tiko gi ta vhukela tiko , ni mufumo wu ta vhukela mufumo ; ku tava kona tindlala ni kutsekatseka ka misava matshan’wini ma tsalangeneko . ’ — Mateu 24 : 7 .

(src)="8"> “ In the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here .
(trg)="8"> ‘ A masikwini yo gumesa ku ta chikela a zvikhati zva zvikarato .

(src)="9"> For men will be lovers of themselves , lovers of money , boastful , haughty , blasphemers , disobedient to parents , unthankful , disloyal , having no natural affection , not open to any agreement , slanderers , without self - control , fierce , without love of goodness , betrayers , headstrong , puffed up with pride , lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God . ” ​ — 2 Timothy 3 : 1 - 4 .
(trg)="9"> Hakuva vanhu va ta ti randza wutsumbu , a varandzi va mali , a vamatshandza , a va manyanga , a va tihlamba , a va nga ingisiko vapswali vabye , a va nga bongiko , a va nga basangiko , lava va nga randziko a va ka kabye , lava va nga tsetseleliko , a valumbeti , lava va nga tiviko ku ti khoma , lava va lunya , lava va nga randziko zvinene , lava va nga tsumbekiko , va cikanikani , va ti kukumukisako , lava va randzako ku ti tsakisa ku hundza ku randza Nungungulu . ’ — 2 Timote 3 : 1 - 4 .

(src)="10"> Those prophecies describe a world that some might say is spiraling out of control .
(trg)="10"> A zviphrofeto lezvi zvi tlhamusela a matshamela ya tiko lawa ma mahako a vokari va wula lezvaku a tiko giya gi biha nguvhu hi ndlela yo kala ku woneleleka .

(src)="11"> In a sense , our world is indeed out of control ​ — out of the control of humans .
(trg)="11"> Hakunene a ku na munhu a zvi kotako ku wonelela tiko .

(src)="12"> According to the Bible , humans simply do not have the wisdom and power to bring about a permanent solution .
(trg)="12"> Hi kuya hi Bhibhiliya , a vanhu a va na wutlhari ni ntamu wa ku lulamisa zvikarato hi kumbhelela .

(src)="13"> This is highlighted in the following scriptures :
(trg)="13"> Lezvo zvi vekiwa kubaseni hi mitsalo yi landzelako :

(src)="14"> “ There is a way that seems right to a man , but in the end it leads to death . ” ​ — Proverbs 14 : 12 .
(trg)="14"> ‘ Yi kona ndlela yi wonekako ka munhu na yi lulamile ; kanilezvi magumo ka yona yi yisa kufeni . ’ — Mavingu 14 : 12 .

(src)="15"> “ Man has dominated man to his harm . ” ​ — Ecclesiastes 8 : 9 .
(trg)="15"> ‘ Mun’we a fumela mun’wani a mu yisa khombyeni . ’ — Mutshawuteli 8 : 9 .
