rock album

by the alternative rock band The Flaming Lips. Released on October 28, 1997, the experimental rock album consists of four compact disc (Compact Disc)s. Each of its eight songs consists of four stereo tracks, one from each CD. The album was designed so that when played simultaneously on four separate audio systems, the four CDs would produce a harmonic or juxtaposed sound. The discs can also be played in different combinations, omitting one, two or three discs. The album's title is a portmanteau of two words: ''Zaire'', chosen as a symbol of anarchy after Wayne Coyne heard a radio news story about the political instability of the African nation, and ''eureka (Eureka (word))'' (literally: "I have found it"), an expression of joyous discovery.

According to interim Rwandan Prime Minister Jean Kambanda's confession to the ICTR, President Mobutu Sese Seko of neighboring Zaire, (now DRC) had warned Juvenal Habyarimana not to go to Dar-es-Salaam on April 6, the day before his assassination. Mobutu said this warning had come from a very senior official in the Elysée Palace in Paris. There was a link between this warning, said Mobutu, and the subsequent suicide in the Elysée of de Grossouvre.

Ostensibly, the aim of the merger, in the terms of the Manifesto of N'Sele, was to transform the role of trade unions from "being merely a force of confrontation" into "an organ of support for government policy", thus providing "a communication link between the working class and the state".

Zaire

'''Zaire''' ) was the name of a Central African state, now known as the Democratic Republic of the Congo, between 1971 and 1997. The state's name derives from the name of the Congo River, called ''Zaire'' in Portuguese (Portuguese language), adapted from the Kongo (Kongo language) word ''nzere'' or ''nzadi'' ("river that swallows all rivers"). Peter Forbath, ''The River Congo'', p. 19.

The state was a right-wing single-party state and dictatorship, run by Mobutu Sese Seko and his ruling Popular Movement of the Revolution party. It was established following Mobutu's seizure of power in a military coup in 1965, following five-years of political upheaval following independence known as the Congo Crisis. Zaire had a strongly centralist constitution (Centralised government) and foreign assets were nationalized. A wider campaign of ''Authenticité (Authenticité (Zaire))'', ridding the country of the influences from the colonial period (Belgian Congo), was also launched under Mobutu's direction. Weakened by the end of American support after the end of the Cold War, Mobutu was forced to declare a new republic in 1990 to cope with demands for change. By the time of its disestablishment, Mobutu's rule was characterized by widespread cronyism, corruption and economic mismanagement.

The state collapsed in 1996 amid the destabilization of eastern Zaire in the aftermath of the Rwandan Civil War and growing ethnic violence. In 1997, Laurent-Désiré Kabila, at the head of the ''Alliance des Forces Démocratiques pour la Libération du Congo-Zaïre (Alliance of Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Congo)'' (AFDL) militia, led a popular rebellion against the central government. With rebel forces making gains in the east, Mobutu fled the country, leaving Kabila's forces in charge.
