KENYA: @UKenyatta gagging of media will not work out well @MigunaMiguna @RailaOdinga

Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta has finally succumbed to the EAC disease of gross Human Rights Abuses and tries to hide them from the world. Today, major global media is running stories of Dr. Miguna Miguna brutally handled at Jomo Kenyatta Airport in Nairobi.  AND we have the videos which are on the Internet which Uhuru will never deny. The problem of African dictators is they did not grow up in the age of Technology (ICT) and Social Media so they fail to realise how fast we can share information withRead More


LIBRARIANS: What does a librarian do? EVERYTHING

LITERARY HUB – Growing up, I liked to imagine what it would be like to work in a library. What little I knew about them was what I’d gleaned from movies and TV because my conservative parents never took us to any and only let me read books they purchased from the Bible Book Store. I didn’t know any librarians in real life—outside of the elderly woman who ran our tiny school media center—but I understood librarians were smart and savvy. Cool and collected.

“Never put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.”

“Never put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.” – Mark Twain https://ift.tt/2wyXp9n To this effect, it is “plausible deniability” to think that you can let President Yoweri Museveni be the planner for your future and the future of your children. It is now 32 years since the National Robbers’ Movement invaded Uganda and “liberated” us for our own good to bring for us peace, sleep, security, delopment, free education and prosperity.  YET YET… Now there are many Ugandans who claim that whatever is going onRead More


KENYA: Compromised media is not telling truth about @MigunaMiguna torture by @UKenyatta

A correction to the compromised media. Dr. Miguna Miguna 1 hr ·  Many aspects of reports in the local media are inaccurate and distorted. No one gave me passport application forms to fill. I couldn’t have torn a document I was not given. What I was given and tore at 2:30pm on March 27, 2018 – not in the morning as falsely claimed by the despots and your compromised media – was a citizenship application form. I am a Kenyan by birth who has never renounced his citizenship. Justice Luka KimaruRead More

Traditional research on memory has focused on the advantages of remembering everything. But looking through years of recent memory data, researchers Paul Frankland and Blake Richards of the University of Toronto found that the neurobiology of forgetting can be just as important to our decision-making asRead More
