Getting ready to see Bruce again tonight, which should be my 50th time, as I enter my 5th decade. He defies time, looking better at 64 than he did when I first saw him when he was 28 years old. He is Living Proof that we can all get better as we get older. Hightlights of this 30 song 3 hour set for me were all the cool covers, especially Staying Alive, and his solo acoustic Growin' Up. Thank you to my bother Gary who turned me on to him 34 years ago and convinced me to come to up to CT this weekend with him. And thank you Bruce for getting me through high school!

Laffin Ma *** Out Yesterday, we were seated in church when pastor was preaching; "We need to take our destiny very seriously". Destiny maybedelayed but it can't be changed. Pastor asked: "how many people have watched MERLIN?" Only 2 people raised their hands. Pastor said, "you see the destiny of Camelot was placed on Merlin's shoulders". Pastor asked again; "who among you has watched LEGEND OF THE SEEKER?" Only 5 people raise their hands. Pastor said; "that's a very good film. The daharans took over the midland but with the help of the Seeker they won. So you must take your destiny very serious. You don't know the destiny of ur country, may rest on ur shoulders". Pastor finally asked; "how many people have watched SPARTACUS or FORBIDDEN SCIENCE?" Everybody for church raise hand. choir o, elders o, ushers o, church workers o, pastor's wife, pastor's childrden. Pastor shouted "Don't watch that movie again.. it's a DESTINY KILLER"

Something about the room not being fully ready, or something. The tributes are allowed to wander the building. Which could involve going to the kitchens, staying in their rooms or chilling in the lounge. Mentors and other high personnel are also around and are free to talk to tributes. Just no killing one another...

Spending 700 million from taxpayers money to build KIBAKI an office is such a cool idea Wooow, what a fantastic brainer . An idea worth millions. You see, an office for a retired president who will be doing NOTHING is very important-Atleast in Kenya. More important than using the money to build decent homes for those living in slums; Mor important than resettling IDPs, more important than improving the salaries of our teachers and the police force; more important than building a classroom for the hopeful education-craving children in Turkana west schooling under a leafless acacia tree in the scotching sun! Indeed the government has its priorities set right!

"Alig", "Senior" and"Junior", these three words more or less carried almost maximum cultural and traditional responsibility of Aligarh Muslim University since last centrury. But now it seems flowing towards downfall. Many times observed when interacting with new generation of Alig fraternity, they ask our identity. Their common questions are who are you? where are you came from? I donno you brother? Can you explain about you some? Its a hammering on the name of "Alig". I dont know when this developed, but surely the root cause is " Ban on tradtional Introduction", which was our cultural heritage and a transforming mechanism of a raw material into a well shaped, updated, culturally equiped and transformed into the mould of "Junior" by our "Seniors" as an asset of the Qaum which start to work after few sessions like their decessars with the most prestigious prefix of all the time "Alig". And our "senior" were "Myammar" of our future dreams. In the other hand if we analyse about our responsibillity as a " .. ...

Observing a conversation on Akil Fahd's status regarding marriage and polygny and saw this comment: " 20 failed marriages is better than 1 night of zinah!" by Abu Shaquille. Then this morning Shahidah Siraaj and I were talking about the numerous amount of non muslim black women that we know approaching 40 that have never been married some having children and others not. It appears that Islam ( or the context of Muslims) has afforded many of our women options that others aren't as privy to. Every woman, especially those with or planning to have children, wants to be a wife at some point. Islam creates a context where the pressure to marry to relate to women is all but obligatory. Without this context the value of marriage is lost. Even in the church the emphasis isn't on men to marry the women the sexually engage with. It is clear that while Christian women have children and sexual relationships, marriage isn't seen as a high priority. This is the way of Muslims and to the benefit of Muslim women even as t ...

AQIM (Terrorist ) works for the DRS (Algerian secret service). Really? The tragic incident that is taking place in In Amenas raised a number of reactions all around the world. The international press and experts seem to have agreed to stress on a specific point: the rudeness of Algeria’s special forces intervention. I watched several programs on many TV channels and almost all the “expert” guests kept repeating that Algeria is not a democracy and its Russia-trained forces do not care about the hostages’ safety. At the end I was left with a feeling that there was an international jury declaring Algeria guilty of killing the hostages. The fact there were hostage-takers kind of disappeared from the discussions. Fortunately, for a fair debate, a few experts reminded the public of some operations led by democratic states and which were as ruthless (example here). An article in The Independent also tried to give a broader perspective for the people to reflect. These experts also mentioned the very high ...

Ri receives her Master's Degree tomorrow and I couldn't be more proud! It will certainly be a very long day (held at the Meadowlands!) with thousands of graduates, but well worth it! She has worked long and hard to get here and has always kept her eye on the prize. I don't think I have ever met anyone else as focused. On another note, altho it is Ri's day, it is also a little "yeah-me day." When I was divorced and the kids were very young, I refused to be a "statistic." I was determined that my children would have the same life any child with two parents had! College was a given; grad school was an option. I listened through the years to all of the stereotypes about single-parent families, all of the "likelihoods" that went along with those stereotypes and it made me so angry. I, we, didn't fit any of them - and I knew I wasn't the only single parent that felt that way! So today I pat me on the back! My kids are phenomenal, smart, well educated (private school education; colleges: Gettysburg, Mu ...
Antony Oyugi: AN AUDIT OF THE FIRST 37 DAYS OF THIS GOVERNMENT-Having been incharge of things for the last 37 days, here is my Report Form for Uhuru's government... 1. Insecurity in Bungoma,Busia,Mandera and the re-emergence of Mungiki in Gatundu.. 2. The clamour by MPs for a salary increment 3. The beating up of peaceful protestors by the police. 4. The beating up of Boniface Mwangi by Atwolis goons in the presence of Uhuru. 5. The re-emergence of Kamlesh Pattni 6. The opaque recruitment of Principal Secretaries 7. The playing of hide and seek regarding the receipt of the TJRC Report. 8. Shuttle diplomacy reloaded and the waste of public funds towards this useless enterprise.none of the above issues has been solved so far. Instead things are just piling up. Those sycophants who call me a hater and sore loser, please tell me anything positive that this government has done for the country thus far!
Many people commented on the picture we posted that said "bombing people creates terrorists" and claimed that Islam is what causes terrorism. As a disclaimer, I don't believe this to be true (at least not fully true, it may contribute but so may many other religions). What do you think the relationship between Islam and terrorism is? Is this relationship particular to Islam or can other religions essentially have the same effect? -TJ

A young girl died last night at Jamaica hospital after being shot in the head on the Q6 in Jamaica , Queens by some one shooting random shots at the bus. Yes , this is very sad and upsetting and at the same time , I am angry at ourselves , why do some of our youth have this mindset of violence , ?where is it coming from ? We get upset but we really do nothing about it , we really have to look in the mirror and see what is being reflected and stop ignoring these problems and stop calling people negative when these issues are brought up. More importantly, A young girl died last night at the hands of a gun , are we accepting this as normal? Are we going to do another march and hope this goes away and make believe we did something about it?, i don't care what anybody say , this is becoming a culture problem, I see many youth praising this type of behavior, for instance, for some, it's cool to go to jail , drop out of school and be in a gang , I know a lot of did these things when we were young but it's some . ...

Umar Lee has exposed more about you and your religion than you may say about him. What you can't say about him is he is a lier, womanizer, scammed people for their money and a whole plethora of deplorable behaviors that Muslims find themselves involved in. Thank you my brother for exposing the fact that people didn't really care about you, just you being in their religious gang. Once you out the gang, your humanity is no longer of any value, which begs to question what was it worth in the first place. Some will be plenty relieved because we are left with a void of someone calling out these fake Muslims. They are excited and elated. Others are concerned about what it looks like that such a "prominate" brother would leave the perfect religion. Let me give you guys a thought.

“[You must] act so that no man dares to strike you because he knows you speak the truth, to act so that you can no longer be arrested because you are speaking for the right to live, to act so that all of this will end, both here and elsewhere…That is what you must explain to others, so that you will never again be forced to bow down before anyone, but also so that no one shall be forced to bow down before you.” – Fa Keita, the Old One, in “God’s Bits of Wood,” a novel by the late Sembene Ousmane of Senegal.

It's BN reps who should be 'grateful' to voters K Temoc | 3:35PM May 17, 2013 Sometimes I wonder whether democracy is the best political system for Malaysia. Indeed sometimes I wonder whether we Malaysians deserve the privilege to use (or more likely, misuse) the label of democracy to describe our political system. No doubt democracy has never been perfect where even in its birthplace, the Athenians denied their womenfolk the facilities of democracy and even kept slaves. But notwithstanding its imperfections, modern democracy has provided everyone with a voice in the society he or she lives in. But in Malaysia, seemingly, poor democracy has gotten the raw end of the deal as we Malaysians continue to blaspheme its hallowed premise. We have our newly-minted home affairs minister telling the federal opposition to migrate elsewhere if they are not happy with the outcome of the 13th general election, forgetting that it is their democratic rights to voice their dissatisfaction. But obviously, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi ...
The Standard Newspaper before the elections published an article about a prophetess Josephine Nyaboke, who claimed she knew whom God had anointed to lead Kenya. She stated that " There is a heavy hand in the current leadership determined to deny him the mantle". She further said that Kenyan will experience turmoil because of arrogant and greedy leaders, and that some parts of the country will experience agitation. The question is, where is Kenya headed??? Are we on the road to achieving Vision 2030?? or sadly marching down the road back to the dark days of 1990s characterized by militia styles killings, political assassinations, police brutality, higher waves of violent crimes, unemployment and poverty???
Ruto is an ambitious young man. He is power hungry, even when they have not been in power for 100 days. How could he order the Military to be deployed in Mandera when he is not the President and also when the Parliament has not authorised such action? Ruto could just be a disaster in waiting...! Someone once said, unbridled ambition can sometimes be a stumbling block!

Sometimes when I have a moment to myself. I like to sit and just think about my life. Where I use to be and where I'm at now. It just amazes me how your life can just change in a blink of an eye. Thinking about life and i realize I wasn't always right in my choices that I've made, but I did learn not to be a repeater of mishaps. I stand today still not perfect but I'm content with Who I Am and What I've accomplished. Just my true moment of thoughts...

Government will create conducive business environment, President Kenyatta Cape Town 11th May 2013 PS President Uhuru Kenyatta has said that his government is committed to creating an environment conducive for doing business.

NEW DELHI : National Commission for Women and some parliamentarians today came out in support of Kashmir's first all-girls rock band 'Pragaash' whose singing was termed as "un- Islamic" by the Grand Mufti of Jammu and Kashmir. "This is wrong. Every one has their own perspective, there are traditions. But I believe that if after so many years of independence, we stop girls from any work, it will be our double standards," said Mamata Sharma, Chairperson of the National Commission for Women. "On the one hand we say that both genders should be equal but on the other hand we put restrictions on girls, that girls cannot do this...I believe this is very wrong," she added. BJD MP Jay Panda also came out in support of the rock band. "I think no body has the right to stop other people from expressing themselves through their music or other cultural activities," he said. Naeem Akhtar, spokesperson of Opposition Peoples Democratic Party in J-K, said the entire incident was an "unnecessary controversy". "Mufti sahab h ...

Uhuru Kenyatta was the minister for finance during the pre-trial proceedings. After the pre-trial judges confirmed the charges he resigned as a minister of finance. this is called "step aside until you are cleared by the court or tribunal". I find it very strange that Uhuru wants to elected President of Kenya even before he is cleared by the ICC Hague ??? The presidency is a much higher position than a minister.James Nyabuto.
