Its funny how we think we know stuff about our bodies, then we realize how much  we have no clue, I have no clue about.As usual i got Google - ing and i got very intresting facts about the human body and of course im going to share them with you, so you may become learned as well....

1. Although the brain processes the signals of pain to the rest of the body..the brain actually feels no pain!Lucky bustard.

2.A higher I.Q. equals more dreams. The smarter you are, the more you dream.If you aint dreaming you are foolish.A high I.Q can also fight mental illness. So if you are mad, you are damn stupid.

3.Women smell better than men. LOL!! as in our scent is better or our sense of smell is better.

4.Adrenaline gives you super strength. In short those guys who lift cars up and pull trucks, they just have a super strong adrenaline rush.

5.Your teeth are growing before you are born, even though they are seen months after you have been born.

The caller...My Mr.Big

It is true to say that nobody goes hunting if there is no prey.It is also true to state that more often than we may realize, the hunter could turn  to be the hunted. 

Just a few years back i was one of those who i like to call the walking wounded. I had just taken a grip of my career life and also had just started living as a legal adult.I remember once when i had to make a decision and i thought to myself that even though we had been taught of all the skills to adult survival, no one had ever told me that when you grow up, the decisions you make determine your life!To cut along story short, I meet the guy whom i thought at the time was my life. After the ups and downs of a dramatic relationship, we finally called it quits because of the actions, annoyance and abuse that we caused each other. It was as though if we stayed together,we only caused more harm on each other.The big girl in the city had accustomed to being in one bad relationship to jumping into a worse one.
I recall thinking to myself that this subject of life called love is just not for me. Its just not for people who are willing to give so much and ready to take in all the crap that could come their way. I remember telling God, from now hence fourth its all about me and my career and my friends. No lovers involved.At this particular moment is when i realized i was a walking wounded. I was a prey. A prey that seemed to be a target to every man i dated. All they wanted to do was shoot me down and make a barbecue meal out of me!At this realization, i decided i would let them think of me as Prey but in reality i would hunt them down. I would make great "Mshkaki" out of them.I had a plan and with my plan i needed loyal friends who knew exactly what i was talking about...It was time to teach the hunters that in the century we live in women can also hunt....
We had everything ready for the job, new wardrobe, new looks and most of all our acting skills sharpened! Everywhere we went, everything we did we made sure if you smiled at us, you would be signing the contract to death row.. our plan make you fall in love with us, make you think you were the one then as soon as you said and meant the three amazing words "I LOVE YOU" , you'd get dumped in public.Humiliate, embarrass and degrade were the main action words.My friends an i were women with an agenda, women with ambition. women with a plan.Until... I got the call.
Ring Ring Ring........
 I knew i had to stick to the plan, that i was not meant to brake the friends new code and most importantly i could not abort a mission that i created and established.Unfortunately, my caller kept on being sweet,kind, generous all done on phone. This was getting strange. This caller would call me through out, send me gifts, write emails, send beautiful text messages and it was scary and yet amazing. I knew this was just a phone thing and that we probably would never make it a real relationship.Little did i know, that my caller had decided to come and see me in person!This is a stranger i had never seen face to face, yet through the millions of conversations we had had , he knew everything about me, every little thing and in every little detail. In my defense, i was certain i would never get to meet him so,it never crossed my mind that this man knew every cuticle in my nails yet we were complete strangers to each other!

 This was a situation, my friends did not know i was in a telephone relationship bearing in mind we had a hunt the man down! The situation was getting out of hand, and i could not do anything to change it. He was here and there was nowhere to run. I did not want to burn the outlandish bond that we had but i also did not want to admit that i was getting sucked into a relationship yet i had already made my friends draw up a cartel of destroy men!

The day finally came when the man came to my city.We had planned a lunch date, a date that i planned to tell him the truth. I was an assassin, an assassin who was wearing a love bomb.Tricky enough, this man knew me well enough that he probably sensed i was not going to show up for the date!What did he do? He came to my office unannounced, and when he walked in..my heart dropped to the ground and so did my jaw!He was perfect!!! also, true danger!
This equaled to ................

  I arranged for a meeting with my friends and over drink i decided to tell my own cartel of love bombers, the truth. I had fallen in love.In an awkward silence of about thirty seconds, they all started talking at once...."I knew you could not do it" "You are more silly that we thought" "We are so happy for you!" "Is he handsome?" Just like Carrie in Sex and the City, i told them i think i found my Mr. Big. The only question that lingered in my head now that i had assassinated my plan of hunting and roasting men..was my Mr. Big really Mr.Big?

The undeniable truth about Global Warming....?

I have never taken keen interest in science.When i was growing up, science was just another subject that i needed an A for a pass and that was that.

I watched and witnessed one of Kenya's Heroines Wangari Mathai get awarded in 2004 as she became the first African woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for her contribution to sustainable development, and i thought what a waste of time and money!

Little did i know that all she fought for, all she cried for, all she said actually was meant for my survival! I have watched scientists talk about end of the world, i have seen religiousts talk about end of the world , i have witnessed the looming truth yet i still battle to believe that it all could be true!

 The above picture depicts what is to be, and how the heating has slowly began. Just recently, sited in my leaving room i got to watch the Russia fires, and this is where my doubt and questions began?Could we be ignoring the truth to escape from reality, because the reality of earth being extinct is too much for us to bear?

Reports have come in saying that this could be as a sign or result of Global Warming!Religious believers have also been reported to term this as a sign of the end?And others including scientist have sought to prove that this has nothing whatsoever to do with Global Warming!
If you are like me,you are left wondering whom to believe? Who is right?What is the way forward? Do we even need a way forward?And who will give us that way ?

Scientists have proved that by avoiding pollution,planting trees, we actually could help in cooling the Earth. Recent reports and findings by the Australia Academy of Science warns that in 2100 the Earth will be hotter than at any time in the past few million years!The have gone on to warn that Global Warming is a real phenomenon.If they are talking about Year 2100, this means that in the next 90 years human race will be extinct?Our children and children's children will not exist?

I may not believe in science, i may doubt the fact that humans just like me are convinced by year 2100 the Earth will be on flames , you may call me doubting Thomas if you are a religiousist but all said and done if there is a way to stop this life threatening wave, i will take the plug and do something and here is an interesting peice of art that i believe may help us save ourselves....

Goodbye Serengeti - Masai Mara migration?

Nature and disaster.......
If you have no clue what the migration is all about the here are a few facts, The migration is the movement of vast numbers of the Serengeti's wildebeest, accompanied by large numbers of zebra, and smaller numbers of Grant's gazelle, Thompson's gazelle, eland and impala. These move in an annual pattern which is fairly predictable. They migrating throughout the year, constantly seeking fresh grazing and, it's now thought, better quality water. The precise timing of the Serengeti wildebeest migration is entirely dependent upon the rainfall patterns each year.

This migration made the Masai Mara be declared the Seventh wonder of the world! Now we face the looming truth that this wonder of the world, may become extinct having that the Tanzanian President Jakwaya Kikwete has approved a long presiding debate of constructing a highway through the Serengeti National park. This move will undoubtedly interfere with natural wonder that has captured and fascinated people from all over the world, leading masses of people into the Kenyan owned National park, come see and witness the seventh world wonder.
Is this move politically inclined? Poor infrastructure, employment, power and land conflicts are top on the list of the Ngorongoro constituency people. In 2005, the now president is reportedly have used the highway construction as a political gambit, promising better infrastructure which would make the lives of these people better considering location and distance logistics to the Kenya / Tanzania border as compared to Arusha.
Five years later, elections are round the corner and the politicians need to justify their stay in the political House.How in God's name will they do this if they have not proved to the people who will vote for them that indeed they honored their promises?

The word as it is.... 


August 1st 2010, we woke up to the news that the Tanzanian President had signed and agreed to the construction of the highway. The alarming shock of this is that tourism sector is one of the biggest industry ranked in Kenya.A majority of the people depend on this wildebeest migration period to earn a living!to feed families! There are more than 50 Lodges & Camps in the Masai Mara, what happens if the animals stop the crossing? Does this mean the number of jobless people in Kenya is just about to rise? Does it mean that the migration is now a thing of the past? Does it mean that we are about to bring down a number of trees yet we are still complaining of Global Warming? Does this mean that the seventh wonder of the world is just about to become among the ancient wonders of the world?Does it mean, for the sake of political pressure and political gain, we all suffer the consequences?
Actions speak louder than words.....

In a move to stop this selfish cruelty, please join in the petition in  hope of stopping the highway  by http://www.savetheserengeti.org/issues/stop-the-serengeti-highway or please tweet, facebook, email or share this article.....

Many Thanks!
