ERA OF TERROR ?

Gunshots,explosions,bomb-blasts
Wreckage,carnage,fill in the blanks
Black September,if you remember,mujaheddin
Hezbollah,Hamas,enemies within
Is terror,terror,simply,the era?

These terrorists,arsonists,fooled 
In airports,stadiums,even in schools?
Segregated,discriminated,marginalized
Brainwashed,down pressed,radicalized
Is terror,terror,the era?

 In the name of religion,the Caliphate,Isis
Yet reckless,and ruthless,a global crisis
Ask Africa,or Bombay,or,even Sweden
Up to Mali,Paris,nine eleven
Is terror,terror, simply the era?

CNN,Al jazeera,full updates
Fatalities, and casualties, is the world too late
Toll rising as given
Watch your back,worry stricken
Is terror,terror, the era?

Cease fire,cease fire,should have been the word
For the pen,be still mightier,than,the sword
Let's then see a decrease,constant press release
Or debris,for we all decree, planet peace
Is terror the era?

GROPE

Suddenly it's all silent,pindrop silent
Suddenly it's all black,dark ,pretty much quiet
Suddenly it's all boring, goring
Suddenly it's all grotesque,fresk,abhorring

And they are all out,by their balconies
They are all out, by their benches,pointing,at felonies
And they are all out,trading, that very same question
They are all out,nodding,unsure,of the very next cession

No box office,where's the jukebox
It just turned errie,such must be life,to a fox
What of the school work,my homework
She'll hear none of it,she will go berserk

Cut off from the glow,of cashflow
Cut off,live music shows,even in glasgow
What of the kiosks,of which we live off
What of this embosk ,so much to write off


Then all of a sudden,it's all smiles,and engines roar again
Then all of a sudden,rushed in again,as the children out shout,that hey!it is back again !!!
When power blacked out,real power chucked out
When power blacked out,its was all a burn out,back out,a phase out,a tap out

THE GENDER AGENDA


The Lgbt wave globally is raging across all factions of society with guts and gusto unfathomable.Meandering through the leity,the clergy,including the political and business class.And as it seems ,even those previously afflicted by the pangs of war are up on the bandwagon.For Kakuma refugee camp one of the biggest refugee camps is said to have hosted quite a 'pride' parade mid this year to the surprise of many.You might need to check that your cellphone has the rainbow lgbt flag among the flag emojis,just in case.Is it the new republic?opium of the masses?new formation?

While you would be sent behind bars in the most places for example for homosexuality in the 60's.Today, you will have action taken againist you for anti homosexuality actions or even speech in some casez for that matter.

When and why then did the rules change? Today,in some places,dare speak against this ' freedom' and you are looked at as misplaced,country and homophobe is your third name.

There's then  reason to fear for homo sapiens sapiens.As a matter of fact, let it be  known that yet another method of possibly grounding and depopulating planet earth has been found.For nowadays a child grows up not with mommy and daddy .But with papi and daddy.Or yet, a mummy and a mama as parents.Paving no way for procreation.

And even funnier,whoever a child calls daddy is naturally the mother who carried child and came to birth upon full term. Whilst the momma per se fathered the kid, in a transgender family setup.What is happening?

Recently a female footballer as they put it " discovered " she is male and rushed for hormonal intervention. Now her club and the footballing bodies are confused of how to handle her case.In a perfect set up she would be accused of having doped with testestrone hence not good to go. Might we begin to see football clubs where half of the team is male,while the other half is male but by fabrication ?.Again,why this shambles?

Today we have fake men and women walking amongst us. You  might be required to think more than once about the attractive man or woman you spot on the street. Lest you be shell shocked upon discovering they are anatomicaly fashioned opposite of what's perceivable on face value.All in the name of freedom.The 'aliens' are here.An "alien" species, only for lack of a better word.

What is the cradle of this humongous freedom ?To the point that a child as young as below  ten decides he or she is opposite gender and the parents tearfully respect that decision and guide them to the nearest physician for hormone altering medication.To stop respective natural hormones from doing their work come puberty.Hence doing a tectonic shift on genders.And there are several cases of people who reversed from natural and upon realizing that was a bad move are this day caught up in a frenzy contemplating engineering a return journey.Last time I checked our bodies were His temple.

But some claim it is genetic.Yet we have cases of identical twins.Where one claims they are oriented different from their twin.But  we all know identical twins have perfectly matching genes.If it was by default, a thing right into one's DNA , there wouldn't be such differences especially in identical twins.These are merely lifestyle choices picked up on an individual level.A product of possibly identity crisis,the same that leads people to drugs and substance or to  join gangs et cetera. Others as a result of exposure to extreme material and people.Bad company corrupting good morals.There's nothing genetic. Its from the outside in.Learnt.Pressed upon.Introduced.Picked up.

Gay hate crimes and murders are becoming common with the day.But we don't necessarily do the same harm to drugs and substance abusers or gang members.Nor do we in any way support their actions or statuses.Yet its likewise the same issues that have shoved them into their entanglement. We build rehabs and scramble professional and spiritual expertise for them.The same should apply to this group to help them come out of their detour and align to natural course. Harming and hating does not achieve much. 

Gay conversion centres have been setup in some countries. Where victims voluntarily check in or are sent for the necessary professional help.This is positive and has been said to registered positive feedback.

I see the millennials.A generation well versed with the technology of the day .Where everything is a click away,making their lives much more easier.Something their predecessors did not have.Yet I again  see a generation likely to go down in history books as having been plagued on a global scale.By amongst other plagues,the horrendous plague  that is gender crisis.That is if enough logistics and effort is not amassed and  deployed towards this very course.

Luckily ,in some parts of the world .Where other than the 'free' and  'liberal' mind there is enough tradition and modern religion encouraged to fine tune the hearts and minds of men  from straying.These issues are seemingly in check and regulated.Work has to be put in anyway to retain sanity lest the bubble burst.

In schools today,pupils are learning more genders and pronouns other than his or her in the same accommodative spirit.Is it zer or something for a transgender person. And for entertainment, there's cartoon with enough transgender and homosuggestive characters for your young one.

' Jacob's new dress' and other similar story books bent on making  look okay the idea of disoriented sexualities have been popularized as part of school literature for all and sundry in some places.All in an attempt to steal, recruit and indoctrinate innocent kids way into  infancy.To sow a seed expecting to reap in due time.So be on the lookout for what children watch and read.Lest they bite the bait unawares.

The penal code also needs to come up with stiff penalties to mete out the malicious minds behind these tactics .Where unhealthy ideas are installed in the subconscious minds of kids without their consent.A very criminal trajectory.

It's hence time for the ' come out '. Out of unnatural lifestyles that are statistically clinically unhygienic and highly susceptible to sexually transmitted infections and diseases.It's time for the ' come out ' in pursuit of professional assistance for those already stepping on this quicksand.It is time for us all  to come out as a counter measure against all kinds of devices bent on recruiting and indoctrinating especially young innocent kids into this agenda.Create awareness,educate,rehabilitate.

The gender agenda(pens off).

KG - KITAROVIC

The world cup is one of the most sought after events in sports globally.Being a major unifying factor our different colours irrespective.

Winning the golden trophy and carrying it home is indeed the ultimate achievement for every nationality represented.Recognition of outstanding personalities according to their dexterity in the sport is a big part of the events award ceremony.Very notable also, is the presence of different countries including presidents from various nations congregated in support of their teams.

In the recently concluded world cup held in Russia.Croatia's president Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic  came out as interesting and outstanding among the many visiting heads of state.

She demonstrated sheer servant leadership and it kept many in awe about the leadership qualities that might come  with a woman especially employing her motherly instincts.

To travel to Russia madam Kolinda Grabar Kitarovic bought her own ticket and used economy class taking selfies and mixing freely with rank and file.She went ahead to don a Croatian jersey and support Croatia from the terraces  avoiding the luxurious VIP suite.And after the final whistle ,she joined thé team in the chambers thanking and encouraging them with her characteristic hugs.Their sweaty state notwithstanding....just one of her many gestures of humility.


When it was time for the finals,interviewed,she remarked that her team came a long way already and whether they made it to gold or not.A silver Croatia would still take home with a lot of pride.

Maybe it began way back growing up as daughter to Branka and Katarina Grabar,her parents, who owned a butcher shop and ranch in Rijeka Croatia.

During a leadership forum at Columbia state university she narrated how they once gave shelter to three asylum seekers for more than a year at their Rijeka home.Only to find them jobs for themselves and release them later.Charity begins at home.She seems to  have had a good vantage point  home for her diplomacy and political career to follow later in the years.She did play football a bit as a young girl.Her daughter is also sporty  and is Croatia's junior skate champion.

She boasts to have received full military training in her country. She was first NATO assistant secretary general nicknamed swambo,a bold decision maker .

Noticeably,despite her power and success,when asked in an interview with Isabelle Kumar of Euronews whether she was feminist. She answered in the negative to the surprise of many. She's only interested in championing for the fair representation of all ,gender irrespective.But not that women be necessarily advantaged, she said.

She sums up  as a Roman Catholic who chooses to stick to traditional values even in a quite dynamic world.

Below is a fact file about her

Name: Kolinda Grabar kitarovic
Âge    :  50 ( 29 April 1968 - 2018)
Birth place : Rijeka ,Croatia
Marital status : Married to Jacov Kitarovic
(A tech guru)
Children    :Katarina Kitarovic and Luka Kitarovic
Religion     : Roman catholic
Proffesion : Politician (Croatia président)
Éducation : Los Alamos High school
                   : University of Zagreb(Masters of Internetional relations.
                   : Diplomatic academy of              vienna
                   : George Washington University
Languages: English, Portuguese,Spanish,Croatian(fluently)
Awards : Honorary Doctorate(Russia)

KG - Kitarovic the youngest and first female president of Croatia is indeed inspiring in many ways.And we have enough lessons to learn from her leadership style and her seemingly balanced personality.Especially today ,where to rise to power is synchronized to breaking free of traditional setups like family so as to man up enough to compete.
Her all inclusive,conservative and ambitious nature denotes that with hard work and the right frame of mind the heights are for anyone to scale gender and all else irrespective.

Croatia today under her leadership is enroute European Union membership and Euro currency compliancy.Its expected she will come up with smart ideas for the refugee crisis and solve the not so good ethnic animosity and strife history that plagued her country in the years before.Her exposure as NATO assistant secretary general and Croatia's ambassador to USA for sometime are prerequisite enough.

It might be time then we  want to allow women, of competence and substance into the echelons.Angela Marchel has been doing a good job so far,Sirleaf Johnson did try her level best in Liberia especially in her first few years of leadership.

And in Rwanda and Sweden where women make up about 50 % of the members of Parliament. They  experience corruption on the down low and all-round well being on an uptrend.Not forgetting for Uncle sam,Hillary Clinton came quite close but no cigar.

You want to watch their pace !

THE GENDER AGENDA

In the oncoming weeks Kakuma refugee camp,one of the biggest refugee camps in the world.Will hold a ceremony most of its inhabitants are not familiar with.The so called ' pride ' ceremony.
The Lgbt wave is raging across all factions of society globally.Meandering through the leity,the clergy,the political and business class.And as it seems ,even those previously afflicted by  pangs of war are up on the bandwagon.You might need to check that your cellphone has the rainbow lgbt flag among the flag emojis....just in case.

Is it the new republic?the opium of the masses?

While you would be incarcerated in the USA  for homosexuality in the 60's.Today, you will be incarcerated for anti homosexuality actions or speech for that matter.

When and why then did the tables turn? For a fact ,though there have been claims of these acts dating way back.It was scarce,a minority of minorities.Today, it is the done thing.And dare speak against and you are looked at as misplaced,country, and homophobe is your third name.

There's then reason to fear for homo sapiens sapiens.In fact, if it's not in their agenda.Let the New World Order conspiratists know that yet another method of possibly grounding and depopulating planet earth has been found.

For nowadays a child grows up not with mommy and daddy. But with papi and daddy ,or yet mummy and mama as parents.Watching a video on a same sex family,two white men and their two adopted kids ,black girls.The young girls during the interview seemed to have a lot of questions lingering in their minds.The confusion and the disconnect being right on their faces.Their young mind still in awe of how the paternal faculty can be converted to a maternal.Did kids learn how to fake ?I bet no.

And even funnier.Whoever a child calls ' daddy' today could be the actual mother who carried child and came to birth upon full term. Whilst the momma per se posesses the anatomy to father a kid ,in a transgender family setup.What's not happening?  'Earth a run red' say they in the Caribbeans.
Only recently in Germany.A female footballer as they put it " discovered " she is male and rushed for hormonal intervention. Now her club and the footballing bodies are confused of how to handle her case and where exactly to place her.FIFA has no provision of this kind because in a perfect setting she should be accused for doping with testestrone and possibly grounded for competitive participation in the women league.But her intention is far from doping,she wanna actually man up !!

Who knows soon we might begin to see national football clubs,worst case scenario. Where half of the team is male,while the other half is male but  fabrication.In the US millitary for example,it's a known thing there are fake men serving alongside real men,the kind that would never share a bathroom.And the reverse is true.Again,why this shambles?Signs of times,some will tell you.The 'aliens' are here.An "alien" species  for lack of a better word.
But yet ,what you hear today, or what is expected you to say,especially in the "developed" world is."But its their choice " ," oh you are so good together ".Or  likewise " I didn't necessarily like the decision my kid took but what I can only do for them now is to help them ,to support them,".This is what you hear listening around.

The question then becomes,what is the origin of this humongous freedom ?To the point that a child as young as below  ten decides he or she is opposite gender and the parents tearfully respect that decision and guide them to the nearest physician for hormone altering medication.To stop respective hormones from doing their work come puberty.Hence doing a tectonic shift on genders.Last time I checked our bodies were His temple.

But some claim oh! it is genetic .And then we have these cases of identical twins.A case in point is this twin in the USA one homosexual,the other transgender already having taken up medication for the feminine look.But yet we all know identical twins have perfectly matching genes.If it was by default, a thing right into one's DNA , there wouldn't be such a difference in a twin pair.These are merely lifestyle choices picked up on an individual level.A product of identity crisis,the same that leads people to drugs and substance or to join gangs and do crime. Others as a result of exposure to extreme material or people of extreme mannerisms.Bad company corrupting good morals.There's nothing genetic. Its from the outside in.Learnt.Picked up.Acquired.

In the Caribbean again, they slash people with machetes if they suspect homosexual activity.Gay hate crimes and murders are common in the USA too.To the point that 'Pink Pistols' an armed gay group based in Philadelpia state.Trains and brandishes weapons to stop anyone attempting to do them harm.It is  getting this serious....

But we don't necessarily do the same for drugs and substance abusers or former gang members.Nor do we in any way support their actions or statuses.Yet its likewise mostly issues of identity that have shoved them into their entanglement. We build rehabs and scramble professional and spiritual expertise for them.The same should apply to this group to help them come out of their detour and align to natural course. Harming and hating and shaming doesn't seem to be achieving much. 

Gay conversion centres have been setup in some countries.South Africa included. Where victims voluntarily check in or are sent for the necessary professional help.This is commendable and has registered positive feedback.

Sometimes back it was lgbt ,today it has stretched to LGBTQIAA to include intersex,queer,questioning, asexual, ally etc.Basically to house the more.'The more the merrier 'they say.....

For the intersex,I wish they were not included in this.Because for them,its out of their grasp not a matter of choice.And have been born not necessarily able to cormfotably identify with either gender even on an  anatomical level.Their 's is a genetic issue.And most will be reserved not flashy,recruiting,indoctrinating and priding.

I see the millennials.A generation well versed with the technology of the day .Where everything is a click away,making their lives much more easier.Something their predecessors did not have.Yet I again i see a generation likely to go down in history books as having been plagued on a global scale.By amongst other plagues,the horrific plague  that is gender crisis.That is if enough logistics and effort is not amassed and  deployed towards this very course.
Luckily ,in some parts of the world say Africa for example.Where other than the 'free' and  'liberal' minds of the so called first world.There is enough tradition and modern religion to fine tune the hearts and minds of men far from straying.These issues are seemingly in check and regulated.Work has to be put in anyway to retain sanity lest the bubble burst.

In some schools today,young pupils are learning more genders and pronouns other than his or her in the same accommodative spirit.Is it zer or something. And for entertainment, there's cartoon and video games with enough transgender and homosuggestive characters for your young one.

' Jacob's new dress' and other similar story books bent on making  look okay the idea of disoriented sexualities have been popularized as part of school literature for all and sundry in some countries.All in an attempt to steal, recruit and indoctrinate innocent kids way into their infancy.To sow a seed expecting to reap in due time.So be on the lookout for what children watch and read lest they bite the bait unawares.

The Penal Code  needs to come up with stiff penalties to mete out the malicious minds behind these tactics .Where unhealthy ideas are installed in the subconscious minds of kids without their consent.A criminal trajectory.

It's hence time for the "come out". Out of unnatural lifestyles that are statistically clinically unhygienic and highly susceptible to sexually transmitted infections and diseases.Its time for the ' come out ',from locker room syndrome in pursuit of professional assistance for those already sinking in this quicksand.It is time for us all  to come out as a counter measure against all kinds of devices bent on recruiting and indoctrinating adults and especially young innocent kids into this agenda.

Create awareness,educate,rehabilitate.

MILLENIALS

According to the oxford dictionary a generation is defined as all the people living at about the same time,regarded collectively.

The 21st century has seen many generations,the latest of which is the millennials a.k.a generation Y.They are said to form the greatest part of the human workforce and population in most countries in the world today.And comprise people born within the 1981-2001 year bracket.

The biggest and one of the most characteristic event of their time is the advent of the world wide web which they have encountered brand new and first hand.

Due to events happening during the time in which a generation runs,each generation has traits unique to it and the millennials are not to be left out.

Today in point form, lets look at about a dozen most common traits characterizing the millennials.

  1. Technology attachment through especially hand held devices comes in as a key trait among the millennials.They are likely to pull out a smartphone first thing in the morning and end the day logging out from the same only to pspectrum m right next to them and continue the cycle next day.The attachment is almost like an addiction in the day.
  2. Compared to predecessory generations millennials appear least prejudiced and more tolerant over a broad spectrum of issues.Divisive culture, geopolitical ideology etc don't seem to quite resonate with them.They are more open and flexible in approach.
  3. Millennials are characterized as generally more ambitious in out thinkers with an affinity for providing the right solutions for issues in their day
  4. They are for a free mindset hence the possibility of detering authority,breaking from old preset rules et cetera.
  5. On the contrary millenials might come with poorer social skills.Their incline to technology bends them towards being quite introverted. With high speed internet and the right gadgets I bet a millennial can stay in an island cormfortably much longer.
  6. Their sense of entitlement/individuality apears stronger. Sharper inclination towards their rights.They might  be as a result a little high headed in comparison.
  7. They also have a more positive view of their economic features with most set on the fine things of life.
  8. Millennials are generally more urban than agrarian in various approaches.Prefering to offer new,simplified,quick solutions appertaining to respective savvy .
  9. They are as compared to the predecessor generations less interested in politics and statesmanship and the affiliations therein.Low voter turnout has been recorded.
  10. Millennials come out as less patient.The technology of the day has programmed them towards getting most things at thumbnail proximity.
  11. Millennials also embrace better the advantages of good networks characteristic of most dealings in the world that they find themselves in.
  12. Rightly so,the points as highlighted are not standard operating procedure but an overly outlook.Personal practice might differ upto and including different environments on a cross cultural and geopolitical basis .

Nevertheless their goes generation Y  the largest part of the populace and workforce in most regions around the globe.Feel free to give additional views on the same in the comments box below.(pens off)

KEKISTAN


Kekistan.The recent buzz billowing over the world wide web,is just but a fictitious country.Kekistan is now  fully set up. And,with a flag as symbol of national unity,a very loyal citizenry,instruments of war incase of aggression,founding fathers and even a deity(kek).

It has its rights on image board open end websites such as 4 chan and 8 chan where members use memes and other such items to express themselves .

Big man Tyrone,a UK based you tuber of Cameroonian decent is the brainchild behind Kekistan.It's citizenry the Kekistanis, are a disgraceful lot who have a war to wage against the Normies(normals/mainstreams) every now and then.Only recently did Tyrone call for a meme jihad by the oppressed Kekistanis as they would want to be described against the Normies.


Meme crafting is a trade it is claimed they have  learnt to perfection from their forefathers way back in the day.And this they use in a flurry incase of a situation against their main foes the Normies .

Normies seem to represent those who are anti Kekistani in ideology.The same are known to believe and prefer mainstream media outlets like the normal TV bulletin for information unlike  Kekistanis who rely on the online space to get the latest news or buzz and sort it all out with memes and other new day armour in the cloud.

Pepe the cartoon frog is  the most popular meme.He is said to have come up around the year 2005.In the recent past however, he has been associated with separationism.

The same way the Kekistani community is hugely associated with white supremacy,racism and the alt rights .Kekistan and Kun Klax Klan would also  sound similar, on a lighter note though.Additionally,the Kekistan flag save for th
e colours and the insignia resembles the infamous Nazi flag in every other aspect.

And that is basically what the viral talk,chit chat or Internet joke is all about .And it loudly bespeaks how radio and tv as was conventional are being pushed out of the top spot as most reliable media.At least as the online community gets more and more interesting  with the day.And the discourses therein percolating even into everyday life.

Also as others will want it put. Man simply has a natural affinity for association or belief for that matter in some thing.Be it a political wave,sports formation,some Kekistan,religious faith et cetera.

Online sources or mainstream media?white supremacy or equal rights for non indigenous whites and the rest?All yours for the asking.

A BAG OR A BUG ?


Our environment  has seen pollution rise to dazzling new heights in the recent past.Largely to blame is the use of non biodegradable plastic bags as a means of packaging the various commodities within day to day commerce.

Huge garbage mounds to the tune of mini hills are a characteristic of most cities around the world today.Recyling some of  them is the done thing but this only allows the vicious cycle to continue.With the plsupermarketsin circulation.
Plastic  generally is  an important faculty of modern society and it can be out of order to solely bedevil it.

Most home appliances,utencils,electronics,and a wide array of accessories we have around have a plastic component attached to  them.Entirely facing out plastic,a cheap,reliable,insulant is not an option due to the broad areas it finds application in the world today.
 
The non biodegradable plastic bag however has been a matter of great concern. This is due to its volatility,seeming irrecyclability and very huge volumes produced and consumed daily.

 When we talk of major contributors to environment pollution today.The plastic bag  in particular is always up the stack.

To decompose takes not less than a century for these bags.And,using incineration as a disposal method releases toxic chlorofluorocarbons into the atmosphere.Mark you ,coal,natural gas and crude oil are the building blocks from which plastic is made.

In the form of microlitter plastic swept into the seas finds way into the bellies of  sea animals.The same are sought for food by humans and it  goes on further plaguing the ecosystem.The Great Pacific garbage patch is a clear case in point.

 As a result ,many places around the world including the  city of Edmonton,Hongkong,Bali, Kenya and Rwanda have come up with austerity measures to curb the use of this bags and the subsequent pollution they cause to the  environment.

In the case of Rwanda,a total ban to the use of plastic bags has been put in place.And with authorities within the country and in it's major transit points on sentry to implement this zero tolerance policy.Kigali was indeed voted cleanest city shortly by UNESCO as a result.

Bags made of paper,casava and sisal are a good environment friendly alternative that can be adopted in the place of plastic bags.Not only are they biodegradable but are rather cheap and in most cases more convenient to carry whatsoever from the shops,groceries and supermarkets.

Plastic bags give a helping hand but they are polluting our land.Lets shun unduly lamination of our planet with plastic.Bags made out of biodegradable material should still be the way to go.

We still can be fantastic without the plastic.

Yeah even jurrasic.

THE PLACE :PARADISE LOST


The coining of a name is a vital part of the process  in bringing about the desired marketing effect upon the target audience,in any establishment.Noticeably so,the tourism docket also has very mind boggling names for some of its popular destinations.

A case in point is Hells gate park.The name leaves one thinking of the heights of mysteries this place comprises.The theory behind it anyway is its deep natural gorges whose destination is seemingly infinite.
Paradise lost resort is another destination tucked in central Kenya east of Africa.Whether it is indeed a paradise of sorts needs paying a visit to demystify.
Rolling fields, of some of the worlds choicest coffee plantations is what ushers you into the park.The twittering of birds, serenity and sweet smell of flora is immediately characteristic of this microenvironment upon arrival.

One of the major attractions within the park only a few yards from the entrance are the Mau Mau caves at the entrance of which are falling Waters from river Gichi.


History has it that Mau Mau warriors used them as cover in their pre colonial resistance against the imperial government of the day. Today,they are well lit and going in to explore is indeed worthwhile.Word going round has it that artefacts of stone age era have been discovered therein to mean early man might have had footage in this caves.


And,stretching over 20km the Mau Mau caves are  probably the only labyrinth of caves this long and with a waterfall enjoined,right at the entrance.Indeed a masterpiece.
Additionally if you are a wannabe jockey. Or,simply has love for riding  animals,paradise lost is the place to be.Here you can enjoy quality time on the saddle of a horse or camel and with friendly attendants to help you in the process.
The lush green lawns also offer the best place for relaxation,picknicking,camping or team building activities of your choice.

To crown it all ,you can choose to go by Paradise dam. Quite a huge natural mass of water.Here boats are available for hire,where you can choose to paddle your own connue or join friends and row downstream in the same boat as you enjoy water sporting,birdwatching and the surrounding nature.

Such a cocktail of nature's best souvenirs must have been the reason behind the eye catching name of this magnificent destination .

Actually paradise lost, but found ,and , up for your discovery.But for the Christians paradise is to be gained and found not lost.

POLITRICKS


A proffession of since antiquity
Players of which,might be smeared with iniquity
Ask Machiavelli,of the benefits of atrocity
Self interest,self gain,crime against humanity

But they come but pleading
Legislature,infrastructure,agriculture,all but pledging
Another year, another term , to keep but trending
Buy their outlook,sell your own,that's the game they're  sending

Most tyrants,most aristocrats,few be true leaders
Most tricksters, gobblers,coming to seek us
Cash outs,hand outs,and we let them lead us
Then over and over continue to trick us

A call then,for independent minds
Elders,millenials,people of all kinds
Who by higher inspiration,shoved this behind
Having found  a brand new island to abide

Cast your vote,fellow countryman,but spare thyself
Ballot issues,will you kindly shelf
Arise and shine,toil for yourself
Girded with hope,resilience,ambition,for another day save this elf

And success will be indeed your portion
Having  now knowledge of what's the better option
Hurry then, this into implementation
Yes we can,a good instruction

OF DIALECTS

Of the 7.5 billion people in the world, a whooping 1.5 billion,about 20% are English  speakers. In Africa ,according to  a survey by the  World  linguistic agency. Ugandans  are the best  speakers followed by natives of Zambia, South Africa  and Kenya in that order.West Africans have this pidgin accents that cost them a place even though  they are equally  well versed and proud english  speakers. 

Globally however, english  seems to be split between American english, native British and Australian english which scores somewhere in between. Of all the three there is something about American english that stands out.Majorly ,this is as a result  of how bold,street and open  it sounds as compared to other forms. Some of it's  traits form the basis of our interaction today. 

As stated , American english comes out as open, bold and pompous in initial trajectory as compared  to the British accent.Which would sound reserved, laid-back and altogether conservative. Also ,while American english is a mouthful, the British accent  is more nasal and raw in voice  projection.
You listen to both of these groups  speak and you immediately notice a big difference in sound and even overall pronunciation of the  letters.Most noticeable are the letters t and d.

 While the Americans will put some stress on letter t to the point of it sounding like a d. The British counterparts come out low key  to the  point  of appearing to not pronounce engulfing the sound within the strong accent. Case in point  is the pronunciation of the  words part of,water, what about ,but etc. The Americans will almost  replace a d sound for the  t. 

Below in point  form are other distinguished and popular  phrases  common in American english.

THIS SET, THAT IS THE MINDSET

Mankind is such a marvelous creation.Indeed as it's put, is in His image and likeness.And,consisting of the mind,body and soul.

Top up the stack is the soul.Following  closely and in tandem is the mind,while the body is the medium and  instrument through which the vibrations internal manifest.

The soul immortal is where life exists,with its many spiritual dimensions as base.The mind and the heart is where all tangible and intangible issues of life find ground.With a person's sensual capabilities forming the better part of what plays on in their hearts ringing into the mind,and back and forth.The product of which are actions then persisting ,character, or, sometimes reputation as perceived.

Ever had the saying,what your think is what you become.Sure, for this is without doubt true.Only dreamers having held firm what in the view of others could have been faint and mediocre  by  enough preparation attracted their preestablished destinies.
The minds content  are a product majorly of even heredity but much more of the environment including the information we take in.Same way as GIGO. Garbage in garbage out.

"It's all in the mind",chanted the team leader as the students heaved into the truck.Then the journey to the starting point started.The students in high spirits began singing in merry to phyche themselves up.It was a steep drive downhill with the test being to run back to starting point almost the same time it took down hill.

As the journey continued  the voices grew dimmer everybody taking a glance at their watches.The journey was getting longer and hence beating the set time seeming more and more difficult.Soon the truck came to a halt just about the one hour mark.Everybody alighted prepared for a minute or so and the whistle was blown for the journey back.

Running fast,slowing down,panting,sometimes spitting,pushing,looking back,straight ahead pushing.Surely in normal terms the math was not adding up,about quater an hour on a truck and only a few minutes more to be back this time jogging uphill.

Funny enough though, the  more they ignored this thought and pushed on anyway,the more beating the time begun to appear possible.On that day all except only one or two with popping injuries arrived back on time to their own amazement.It course was by design to check on their grit .It was really all in their mind.
Moral of the story.Always take inventory of your state of mind in accordance to your goals or dreams, image you would want to put up et cetera.Be in pursuit for all what reaffirms you.Check regularly
also for impurity in  form of say your physical environment or
company.

They say environment supersedes heredity.We all have a genetical bias but who and what we surround ourselves with much more dictates our minds,hence action and way forward.

Remember then to keep sentry of all other things your mind.Which masters you towards or away from accomplishment. Therefore,worry no more,only by safeguarding and creating the right environment in your mind , position yourself into opportunities for your betterment.
If this calls for shrinking from the multitude for sometime,do exactly that .It is even often said "no one ever led the orchestra without first turning his back to the crowd".Hence ,if need be,stand even alone if necessary.Being bold on your way.

Sooner in the right time things  will begin to fall in place and you will reap from your efforts.Thats the fundamental part of the process,its all in the mind.

What is in your mind? because,its at times, all that matters.

NATURE'S NATURE


Nature,nurtures,could torture and in many ways will even teach.Rightfully so,it is the common denominator from which everything else builds up.

Scientists,researchers,name them all.Have been known to simply use nature's own as raw material to engineer much of the development we see today.

And some of the math is this simple.Compare how aeroplanes taxi,lift,and glide all the way into the skies. To, what most of these birds do ,and the parallelism is obvious.Similarities in the outward designs are also loud enough.An aeroplane is basically a bird only maybe of a different species.

Radar  in aviation is used in the same context.As a higher depth,higher resolution eye into the skies.Scanning for any oncoming aircraft and clutter altogether.The artificial eye that sees but though a little differently.The concept though is solely generated from nature.And with widespread application.

Hence, let's begin to embrace,perceive and understand nature better.There's plenty of wealth,solution and inspiration from nature if only we were to take a closer look.

Its a known thing also that most celebrated  fashion designer's colour combinations are inspired by the beautiful birds and marine life around.And,easily accessible to all and sundry.You hardly come by a creature with mismatching pigmentation by the way.All their colours seem to blend perfectly with each other.

And in the medicine world,ecotherapy is also becoming very popular.Especially nowadays.It is not uncommon for medics to recommend sometime alone in a park or arboretum of sorts.The fresh air,sounds of chirping birds and flowing waters have been known to make the heart fonder and the mind calmer.

You might even begin shying away from the hustle and bustle of the noise blaring cities and it's similar leisure joints.And begin to seek the quiter parks for your day offs and vacations.Even in the beginning, HE did place them at Eden.

To continue enjoying we then must preserve.Hesitate not at any opportunity to plant a tree, shun the plastic bag for the biodegradables,use the litter cans,report the poachers et cetera.This way we will have protected our planets choicest possession for our own good and that of coming generations.

Then the Savannah's,the Amazons and the Galapagos will perpetually offer us this awesome presents and much longer.

Mother nature,she is indeed to treasure.

EMPOWER THE BOY CHILD

 A man is indeed a leader,protector and provider.This are responsibilities apportioned him by nature at least by default.It is only from the boy child that we can raise,nurture and put up men competent and efficient for the future.Hence the need to empower the boy child.

In the recent past however,a lot of emphasis has been put on the girl child.And,sometimes ,at the expense of the boy child.We all know of massive anti fgm,anti gender based violence and anti priority to first educate the boy child in the yet to develop world.

From infancy,the girl child is under the cover of activist,whistle blowers and law groups all championing for her fair share of the societal cake.And,much has been the fruit of this by the way.We see women now able to take part in almost every other sporting discipline.Boxing,wrestling,football and rugby inclusive.In the event of an opportunity in the job market,the issue of gender balance will always come up in male dominated fields the reverse of which is not necessarily obvious.And,a good percentage representation in the legislative bodies et cetera.

The boy child or young man on the other hand is expected to muscle his way through,as a man should.And some falling short of good mentorship end up into various vices after seeking solace in the street and other not very good places.And when his time comes he is not also a role model figure to those under him,and so he makes mistakes affecting many,and the cycle continues.
In the event of family breakdown, the girl child will usually earn sympathy from some persons.While the boy child will languish in the street as an urchin and pick up other ill fated titles with time.He will also be easy prey for scouts for the  role of child soldier in the event of civil unrest, while the family takes cover in the  provided places.

All this while,no organizations are formed to nurture him and toe him on the line towards delivering his noble societal expectations and in case of infringements to his rights defend him.

We need more of the likes of YMCA to really come up and see to it that the boy child and young man of today is provided ample ground for wholistic development. We need fraternities, philanthropy and enough foundations specifically geared towards this.

Let's see more of present day Baden powell, founder of the boy scouts movement. Or Dr Griffin,founder of Starehe boys center,an institution of excellence.The products of which are many prominent people in Africa today.

QUARTER LIFE CRISIS


The birth of a child is one of the most exciting things both in traditional and contemporary society.The newborn especially traditionally, is welcomed in fanfare,colour and many ululations.Sometimes five for a boy and four for a girl in some traditions.

Like all other species, the human child enjoys the tender care of its life givers for sometime.In modern society ,this is usually the eighteen age mark.By this time ,necessary documents to live and be productive as an adult citizen have been acquired.This basically ushers in 'quarter life'.

A sometimes tiresome search for job opportunities is a thing most young people of today will experience.Having dropped cv's and certifications left,right and center.And  having checked every other notice board,job opportunity websites and adverts on the dailies mostly with no light at the tunnel end.

Most youngsters will be forced to settle for jobs they are overqualified in or are not passionate about  for the sake of the bills.Scaling the heights of a career usually takes time and will require  a lot of patience and perseverance as the skills are mastered.

Going solo, the art of being smart can only be mastered.Fake friends,fraudsters and opportunists have to be predetermined as they seem to litter every other place.From the neighbourhood,workplace,utility personell and the scroll is a lengthy one.                                                

After sometime maybe changing jobs
and  gaining more skill interpersonal and intrapersonal ,some comfort and stability will be achieved in one way or the other.

Sooner or later,real relationships will  kick in.This phase is not any easier. Here mistakes are made with some being unable to easily reverse.The awareness of the ticking time bomb of the responsibilities of parenthood begin to become more and more vivid with time.This of course will require stringent emotional and financial measures and of course the right partner.

Nevertheless, finding the right partner is quite an issue for some if not most  young people.Languishing in solitude is common practice.As a result of lack the right match and some unpreparedness to responsibility. This becomes stressful and a real issue with some youth.

And so many issues will seem to crop up around this phase of life. Adhesive bosses,confusion on whether to go by ones elder's advice or what one should feel as quite right for them as an adult becomes cumbersome.And the cycle is without end.

They say,decisions are a product of information. In quater life ,where important personal decisions are to be made. The young man or woman will need to be well informed to make the right decisions.

A good book,spiritual base and mentors come in handy here.With the right informational environment hence frame of mind.The young people can hence cope and sail through quarter life and it's issues and move on to be smart,succesful,productive and responsible citizens.

Voila !

MATATU CULTURE


Visit any place and there will always be what is trademark to that particular locality. For ,hardly is there a place mirror image of another.

Nairobi,the city in the sun.Is a nice city. Green,modern and also serving as the capital of Kenya.Much has been written about Nairobi including it being the only city with a national gamepark adjacent.Visit Nairobi and you will likewise immediately notice its eye catching minibuses serving as public transport.

Matatus as they are referred to are privately owned and came in to add on to and eventually face out  government provided buses post independence.They derive their name from the three cents the buses charged as commuter fee.(matatu means three in the local Kikuyu dialect).Unlike buses,matatus come with a 14 seater,25 seater,33 seater and a 55 seater configuration.

A cinema theatre,moving sound system or art gallery are all terms that have been used to refer to these masterpieces.Jump into a matatu and it will be an experience you will carry with you for a while.Contrary to typical public transport .Where you simply board,ticket and take your seat awaiting destination.A matatu will tickle your fancy from the word go.




From the outside a matatu is well 'pimped as they put it.With vinyl graphics,graffiti,classy rims and cutting edge fabrications. The choda design being the trendiest and most popular one.The horns will be blaring,the engine roaring and the music ever blazing.Of touts, they will whistle gracefully, wave the fare by hand signal and even come right where you at to ask you in.Just make sure you've learnt a few of the slang as everything around matatu will be in popular slang.


Once you are in,especially if you are lucky to board a really classy one.Cutting edge upholstery will be first to catch your eye. Of course after the screens ,interior design and acoustic sound systems.Some have a screen behind every seat.So don't worry,you won't need to crane your neck to catch the big screen as their is one for each passenger.A VIP section,a small compartment for elite experience is also a feature you can come by .Wifi is also provided.Simply look around and find the password displayed mostly at the front and log in .

Notice also pictures of celebrity personalities,reknown televangelists and politicians gracing the insides.Advertisement stickers, bible verses and gutter press stickers the content of which is in most cases comic also add to the interior.You are allowed to giggle,or smile at yourself if it is funny enough.

The tout experience is also one of you should look out for.Catch them whistle in melody to communicate with the man behind the wheel on when to slam on the breaks for a pick up or a drop.Watch them also do acrobatic stunts at the doorway even as the wheels roll in high-speed.

En route,a matatu will meander through traffic in tact and skill second to none.Dont be surprised to see the driver roll onto the pedestrian/cyclist passage overtaking or anticipating space ahead in a traffic jam.It is populary known as an overlap,punishable, but it's the done thing.


You will notice the commuter fee is collected midway or at your point of dismount depending on the crews modus operandi.At this point better make sure you have loose money for convenience purposes..Plus there's chance your integrity might be tested 'by fire ' if the conductor skips you or simply forgets to charge you.

For a first timer,by the time you alight usually in the space of minutes the experience will indeed have given you something to  tell a story about.Some skillfull and youthful enough will be able to get off before the matatu is fully stopped.Kindly wait till the vehicle is fully stopped if you don't subscribe to such skills.And there is enough slang for this stunt also.


On the bigger picture, the matatu industry is a major employment provider in the Kenya.Talk of thousands working round the clock as designers and matatu crew.Not forgetting those employed in the many sacco's managing the business . Having mentioned these, one guy Moha is to be applauded for doing the first artwork on a matatu years ago. Setting the trend from where the rest followed suit.And, opening up a big big job opportunity for artists, interior designers and electronics specialist.


On a community level, matatu have also made their fair contribution.A story is told of touts who help physically challenged persons daily to their seats.A matatu saved a possible car jacking by escorting a vehicle the other day.And in tango one plying route 23 and owned by R.O.G sacco,a church based company and major player in the industry.A woman with the help of pedestrians and of course goodwill from the crew who had already detoured to help her into hospital .Came to birth right aboard just as the vehicle crawled into hospital.Young school going children are also handled gracefully on their way to and from school.And,not forgetting, top of the range customer services in some matatus.Where, lost and found goods will be kept secure for you. Plus  you will be welcomed in ,guided through wifi connection, and , you almost think you are aboard something else.


Additionaly matatus also come in as instruments of expression of various things going on in the country.You just need to read most of the graffiti and quotes written on matatus to catch a glimpse of  what word is going round in various facets of the country. Brand names like ngamia 1,eurobond ,kiongozi et cetera are evidence of this.

Only recently, Nganya awards ,a platform where the best and most disciplined drivers, conductors,saccos, sound technicians and fabricators are recognized  was set up.Further spicing up talent,work ethic and competitiveness in the industry.

To now level the ground .A finger has been pointed at particular sacco's plying particular routes for entertaining criminals who steal from passengers on their way and even air explicit material. Only recently did a trio receive what most considered a heavy judgement for a misdeed involving a female commuter in one of the matatus.Return on investment is also another issue.Where some investors overspend on the designs not taking into consideration subsequent wear and tear hence profitability margins .

Nevertheless ,matatus will remain an iconic landmark to the city of Nairobi .A means of expression in Kenya urban culture. The affordable and timely means of commute for a surmountable number of city dwellers operating almost 24hrs. And a major source of employment for many around the country.

Visit Kenya,visit nairobi and sure enough board a matatu.
