KDF via Uganda, Somalia, Ethiopia

Hello, the blog is doing fantastic uptime is okay regarding the recent surrender which happened in east africa by the defense forces a clean gateway into the turmoil surrounding domestic as well as civilians over in kismayo. Since september the border appears to be in control of the kenyan troops who requested for directions regarding Somalians and rebels spots throughout various towns, if your occupation is in the forces of Kenya and/or United Nations increased chances are you fighting for a better cause one which may involve Terrorists but it just seems like this was one quick way to wrap up and ongoing feud that has left many unemployed. What kinda mess up is it on my timeline I really don't want to get up to hear this the link should help anyone wondering about what it can take to become a universal soldier. I heard from BBC that the battle was fought and won the images in the news appear to be about troops pulling up in heavy trucks and making life better for refugees, they still cook up the beef it's a long wait perhaps a stand that may just have to be put to an end. I also have written a letter to BBC news service East Africa offering my advice I found the address my main aim is to leave the beef and settle for doing things the right way they will not be easily fooled but it's over whoever went there, expensive sedans now for Kenyan troops cashout and scarface such tendencies shouldn't deter civilians in Nairobi walking along to catch a glimpse of a plane. If your tuned into the media then you may hear about the clashes which are spreading all over the newspapers, in France for instance they cook up beef but in America they sell them sticks, sometimes whole chicken inside a grill, Italian places to chow down pizza ask around and you may even get a cold shoulder from the Tex-Mex spots. All in a good days work your not going to see anything other than an effective way of finding the bad guys whether by plane or radio, Kenya is most definately has the upper hand they are just hard to convince fromt he look of it it's just a waste trying to get what you cannot achieve. So whoever is in control of the operation certainly has to make good judgement a Major standoff mission impossible but it's only to help #KDF # #OperationLindanchi. So I also wanted to respond to the television which didn't show very much other than the documentary about poverty in Kenya a very truthful move from the enemy but the kenyan border must be controlled by these citizens.

When Will our Email Betray Us? An Email Privacy Primer in Light of the Petraeus Saga

EFF - As part of the unfolding scandal that led to the resignation of CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus, the FBI read massive amounts of private email messages that uncovered an affair between Petraeus and his biographer Paula Broadwell. We've received a lot of questions about how this works, and what legal process the FBI needs to conduct its email investigation. The short answer? Our email privacy laws are hopelessly out of date. If we learn nothing else from the Petraeus scandal, it should be that our private digital lives can become all too public when over-eager federal agents aren't held to rigorous legal standards.

Denzel Washington Learns How to Fly

Today, I have just retured from seeing Flight not much to say about this movie, it seems like Hollywood is undergoing some renovations whatever this means it's up for the audience to decide but for now I think it's worth watching a second time. Someone is asking to find the meaning of flying who is the master here? who is in control how am I going to be able to please everyone? when all i've got is my job. Many things are on the line so I suppose looking for a problem doesn't solve it but makes it worse, I may have to cut it off stop from worried about others deal with it own issues. Just do what your told I suppose it's the Lord turning some bad scenes you hear, until you end up a screw up and make it out alive stop asking where is my job? how can I get it back you know? going to leave that alone blah come to think of it something such as acting isn't simple am going to make mistakes alone just watch it. Some of us just don't like that fact but it's true, let's just say you cannot give up but when you do don't fail at it. Never going to understand exactly what a professional Pilot has to go thru it's just funny when things go wrong it sounds well organized a higher order unable to take it from me. Who understands such things? it's up to you to decide switch to the next station or look towards the awkward dolefulness. The main performer from actor playing this elaborate role everything isn't okay did seem to attempt to ignore the main actor Denzel Washington. I follow him on twitter do not care attitude. My attitude but has changed since seeing it open in theaters.

Obama and Romney in final push

Last night, I watched the debate on live television what I imagined is seeing both candidates getting a better pay; plus an ability to reach voters. But my registration card was sent back in the mail so I dunno if i'm going to vote this coming election. I watched in split screen but no questions from the reporter who sat right in front of the President Obama and Fmr Governor Mitt Romney. I tried to think about the topics they were discussing but it just seems like the first lady is controlling the entire show, there's a possibility of this being a one term president. With so much to do in the office I believe the point is being heard at the crossroads, but often when someone is speaking to a large crowd it's difficult controlling what to say. Everybody is all ears as both cadidates are speaking I was talking on the phone for a shortwhile, sometimes nobody wants to talk they just want to keep their secrets no matter the cost. In first place is our president who appears to be in control but not for long something tells me whatever he was talking about was understood by those who support him and that's painful. I just want to say time goes by very fast unlike the previous administration which did their thing. What about if you think they are doing wrong things - Former president Bill Clinton who created fear amongst the people there was tyranny; when his government feared the people there was liberty. leading the nation afterwards was it liberty? it's hard to say. Secondly the challenger Mitt Romney, where is everybody this looks like a stage coach going bananas it's so hot temperature rising but yet things seem normal. When is it the right time for a take over someone's job is on the line the challenger is prepared to smash everything. In our country people go to rallies and listen to politicians no matter if what their saying is true or false. I believe if your going to vote then the card should have gone and not been returned. I am able to listen without being judgmental, acting in front of the nation isn't a gift so why do it? I watch the media and this is just one last waste of time. I talked to three people before watching this debate the previous one at Hoffstra didn't ask very many questions they have done plenty but served nothing. I simply spoke too much to myself and it's now that I figure something is missing, these people must be looking forward to leaving and wanting to win me over so i'm not going to hold them hostage go somewhere. You cannot put a play/drama together that way America, anyway what you want is something to come in and do something but your not willing to look what this one person had to do to get it. Just listening isn't going to make the next step better. So perhaps if we could just elect a new candidate for office would be okay with me, it's clearly not up to me to decide our president just has to either stay or get kicked out. This is one difficult game your playing and it doesn't seem to be working especially when the future depends on it. I am unemployed I intend to find work so I believe Mitt Romney is creating something that is impossible to get back, and he should not give up. We need to pay out debt if not straighten the country a.s.a.p let's not embarrass ourselves "Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom" Thomas Jefferson.

Hip-hop singer Flo Rida performs at UTA in October

Today, went to our local university campus to look for advertisements in the campus newspaper and couldn't see anything about this upcoming event at the UTA. Everyone is outside so i'm walking out you could hear a pin dropping but some laugher so i'm walking by the waterfall near the library and wondering where everyone going. I guess it was not such a good idea to go there, I had set the event into my phone, so the day really just happen to begin when I got out of bed. I just parked and then walked up the stairs looking around then down; as i'm going across the bridge. No I do not jump I see someone walking next to me. I asked the dame who appears to be Asian where she is going? she told me to class her major is Biology. I continue walking I look forward and continue speaking she looked familiar I think she was in my computer class at the junior college. It's not until afterwards when I enter the building that I realize there's a sign inside saying Banned; there's some writing and crayons. I just sat down to read the newspaper looking for 'Flo Rida' I departed to go back home because I felt tired where's my car. I left in a hurry I guess because it was over no rap concert until the 19th, the girl said next week but I was looking forward to getting in free. The telephone when I called earlier was not answered speaking about coffee I wonder what flavor they want.

Tech Crunch ~ This is about my social network there is alot to be saying that is happening over there has anyone heard lately about this domain, if you've surfed there and enjoy seeing how it functions please don't be afraid to explain what could happen to it. I hear share holders are disappointed I don't work there, but I think the legal thing to do is go there. Does it need to be shut at this moment it appears otherwise it's a bug and it's supposed to make money. I have been using the social network Facebook for a long time, but I think they waste it and are giving users this impression of success and organization, those techies who like to look for the next best mishap. Yet destroying morality and loosing does it lack discipline sure. Appreciating another hopefull success story, perhaps if they move on. Who would know how to "make a shilling" the way the internet portals should function right. Using Facebook isn't very much a coincidence nowdays. I like to drive but the waiting it's like there's plenty of stuff happening with friends, they're not yet going to leave that place their going to see us walking out. I really prefer receiving some kinda cash or tokens. To play for cash like selling magazines, playing video games, buying cellphones the clock is ticking the stock could be, better droop it Google is at the 600 mark.

Remembering 9/11

If you or anyone would like to see what took place on 9/11/2001 take a look at some of this photographs. I would also like to note the former president George Bush, I doubt if anyone bothered asking for his autobiography at the local library but I have done it. It's been hard on us Americans this just happened and whether anyone is to blame is up to the Lord to decide it. The power to express my ingratitude has been tarnished sometimes by the constant attention being given to techies who don't really seem to care about the poor. In order to move up one sometimes has to figure out and obtain whatever is necessary to help himself get over such a tragedy. This is very complicated and one might need to speak to a law enforcement officer, someone with legal ends or a pastor. But I really think Al-Qaeda came down on that day it's not even worth it telling you what has taken place since that time. Only problem is the darkness that needs to be checked upon because i'm not going to sit and tolerate such a catastrophe theory will someone tune to Cnn.

Rant: DFW Airport Overhaul

I just arrived home from North Dallas and everything looks okay, I saw about two cop cars otherwise traffic is moving just fine. The reason i'm typing this is because I was just there and the traffic from last weeks journey kinda made me want to sit down and share a word something about the construction happening over at the North Entrance - Exit bothers me. I went the wrong way I was going to visit someone one evening during the rain and disliked looking for my car, leaving the bus terminal and searching for my car. The airport is located in a very bad place far from downtown, near Irving where the Cowboys used to play football. Late night and morning traffic problems I don't like to explain what was just completed but it's that bad. Anything happening there is none of my biz but if you look around and notice the incomplete road work, it should be considered a serious matter. One cannot help but brave thru the traffic it's a congestion as you leave the malls and area restaurants. While your driving the wait inside the car and obvious road conditions made me suspect something could be going on ahead of us, so can someone help me understand what could be wrong with the TxDOT. So I did some searching but couldn't find anything about it except for maybe some competition about, how you want it designed. Since I always go by there I just wanted to say that it's looking much better but don't know who could have finished it. Some international airports like in Great Britain, Qatar, Italia, France and Japan could be better or local ones such at Alaska, Atlantic, Hawaii, Michigan, Washington, Maryland, San Antonio, Houston, Newark these are perhaps better traveling on such short notice. The traffic is still there but with some of the lanes closed as I was going past there I believe the only thing happening is the new terminal D. Notice planes parked but it's going to take a lifetime remodeling my local airport..it just needs more upgrades to match other high performing airports like in Tokyo situated along the globe.

The MLB season has been going on for sometime now and despite the sluggish movements and the setbacks I think Texas has a good chance of winning most of the games, after the world series it's about time we got past our differences and hot climate to end the season. Perhaps it's too early to predict looking at the way they've started playing it's not impossible to give any hint but I just think baseball is no longer something I enjoy watching. I just wanted to wish them "good luck" even if they happened not to beat anything last season. I suggest they do something about the batting lineup, it's an open field the ball goes into the left field and the stadium is going to be on espn at 4am. I cannot follow up on that and i'm not around to watch it..doesn't make the sport look safe at all so return to perfecting the look of the team..the lineup to watch for areas of improvement.

Take a look at the infographic and it's clearly all for the former president I suppose he did a good job and never lied to Africaans.

The main suspects behind Saitoti/ Ojode deaths uncovered

It’s No secret anymore, the suspects are well known...MP Rachael Shebesh didn’t get her facts from outer space...Today I will unveil to you the main suspects..You be the judge as to who you think killed the two. First and foremost I would like to clarify one thing which is that Saitoti was the main target in the Helicopter crash ...Orwa Ojode was just a victim of circumstances better known as collateral damage. Before I mention the suspects, it was well known that police commissioner Mathew Iteere was supposed to be on that very flight but he missed it by a whisker...Why? ati he was delayed in a flight bound for Mombasa from Nairobi. Anyway here are the main suspects: - Saitoti family, Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka, al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Shabab fighters and Raila Odinga, the Kenyan prime minister.

London 2012 Olympics: 14 days to go - live blog

Is anyone interested in the coming Olympic Games click here to get Live coverage of all today's news in the run-up to the London 2012 Olympic Games. Looking back on previous athletic events such as this one which took place in The United States in 1932, I seem to want to ask what about the climate? it was in Berlin 1030 X Olympic congress or IX that a gathering of 600 canoes were offered just as an usher. The issue of venue security has been a vexed one for London 2012 organisers. Not to worry that security is going to be regarded as high level, I don't intend to be attending so sitting home sounds normal despite a lack of income and transportation. Sitting home at my computer and wondering about going to the Olympics is something I rather not discuss now. But coming back to my previous point of the climate, how is the public trasportation going to function. "Our advice to those going to the Olympics is to keep up to date with the forecast to know whether to pack your sunscreen, a poncho or both. Always go prepared for whatever the weather has in store." If you do happen to make it to London 2012 what about driving to see beach, this doesn't sound like a walk in the park the biggest event in world sport. Unlike France i've seen and heard alot about the hotels in Britain some very expensive, if I was to try directing while looking around I don't need to get uncomfortable they cannot just simply find it. London has spent billions preparing to host the 2012 Olympics, constructing state of the art stadiums, overhauling transport links and installing anti-aircraft missiles to beef up security. But there is one thing organizers can't control: The Great British Weather. It’s the International Olympic Committee. So how do they decide? According to the "Official website of the Olympic Movement:" “To make it onto the Olympic program, a sport first has to be recognized: it must be administered by an International Federation which ensures that the sport's activities follow the Olympic Charter. If it is widely practiced around the world and meets a number of criteria established by the IOC session, a recognized sport may be added to the Olympic program on the recommendation of the IOC's Olympic Program Commission.” What about the Saudi females/women? Al Maeena says it's not about challenging norms (the women play in private female-only facilities) but about wellbeing. "It's a social debate that we have to go through to promote [sports] and tell society, or the opposing segments in society, that we're not going against our religious or cultural beliefs," Al Maeena told CNN in February.

When digital beef gets real: What Drake, Chris Brown, Meek Mill can learn

Hello, I just want to post this article on my blog concerning this beef between the performers, i've been picking them up and trying to think what it all could mean..I guess by now there is a lack of respect and obvious jealousy online. Because how can men like one thing, how come the person being wanted cannot find a way out of the relationship trap? they just want to squabble or be spoken of the interest ain't even available. Rihanna is all over doing promo's i'm at a loss for words today this just seems like a person unable to control themselves. Landing in more and more trouble even though problems have already been explained, you just cannot stop from stepping into it to hurt yourself. It's the reason why there is fighting but really in order to explain how it all started I would have to put blame on Rihanna, she's been thru this before so she needs to show some kinda maturity about the brawl anyway fighting is not the right thing to say just make sure you see Chris Brown he's got a girlfriend. Must read VH1's Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta article.

I will post as many headlines as possible but they definately weren't going to give OKC a chance.

Ngong

I was watchign the news just now and found some disturbing images about an accident that happened in my home country of Kenia. Fortunately I know the politicians who are involved in the accident. Since the beginning of the yr stuff has reached climax because it seems as though matters keep flooding the web about various topics things beyond my control. The east african region where it happened may sometimes get ignored by the camera today was just one of those days when I received the sad news, take a look at the article. For instance i've read tweets mentioning flights taken that happened to be dangerous, and have even heard convo about choppers. I just didn't think this type of stuff could happen to cops and senior government official following the bomb blast which rocked Nairobi this past week. The plane mentioned was a factory AS350B3e Ecureuil helicopter a recent acquisition by the Kenya Police Air Wing from Eurocopter Southern Africa (Pty). The cause of the crash is said "poor weather" I urge you as well as others to pray for the family if it's for real may the victims rest in peace.

I am single and a big fan of R&B so her music has definitely been on my mind I could say i'm going to be there for a person. I cannot stop looking it's an eavesdrop i've yet to obtain the second Good Girl Gone Bad record. I made it to the Loud tour and am partly overseeing this stuff she's done about the "Rihanna Navy" not bad.

Rant: Trayvon Martin Shooter's

The news today about what happened in FL seems like it's all over the airwaves so I just stepped in to sit and try to understand what happened there. My media view is that there wasn't enough time for the man with the weapon to think, so I put alot of blame on the gun owner (himself) I may want to own a weapon but using it is another explanation. For instance I know some folks have got security jobs your called to answer questions so pressure is mounting for the victim to pause from any harm he's merely looking to be put in a stretcher. I once told a friend if they wanted to own a firearm they should obtain a license otherwise if the law clamped down onto y'all shooting away on the 4th of July get it outta here posting bail will not be anything cheap. Anyway citizen Trayvon Martin is a victim of the fields where your able to sit next to others and can hear them laugh or chat about their lives some run the streets earning a living at such a low wage causes problems just don't bother to confuse yourself someone is already willin to creep up and blow you away. I'm very sad that he's picture is in the news but when are we ever going to stop being argumentative and take this seriously lives of the youth cannot be taken for granted. In order to find a reason to forgive cannot be easy but I just realized his father is speaking on TV, standing next to his wife, and lawyer and wish the gun didn't sound. I was standing to ask whether the court judge had something smart to say but they're about to march like it's a party, the cops I hear tried to intervene telling George to step away from the suspect. This dude is free to roam the street I can tell there is alot of information regarding his civil case, people need to get organized do alot more than sit and think to go on a protest. This kid is from Florida where it's rough your living one second going nowhere all you want is to stay out of trouble and avoid the drug dealing to look at his picture some more but it's not funny, so I stand here speaking on behalf of everyone on the web the law did it's best. I also want to add that I once did notice a tweet from Khloe Kardashian about getting on the airwaves at Florida's z100 - social networking may have to restrict being the scapegoat here are some of the anouncements a complete waste. So just because the cars are moving and traffic is flowing makes living that much more difficult, Al Sharpton is standing next. Basically a case like this needs no further explanation but I just think it's not over they are even calling some black panther members to speak on the matter, I object.

New Video: Jay-Z and Kanye West "N*ggas In Paris"

I just wanted to share the new video Jay-Z and Kanye West "N*ggas In Paris" ...before we approach Saturday what I would like to explain but it's non of my biz i'm just someone who once used to live in NJ. Over the weekend CNN reported from Los Angeles announcing that Houston was attending a pre award grammy party host by recording producer and music mogul Clive Davis; it was there that you can see a crowd standing waiting around some speaking to reporters this at The Beverly Hills hotel. Houston, 48, was found dead underwater in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills hotel, according to police they show Los Angeles and Atlanta where they've got black neighborhoods asked q's?? but my weekend starts out with gangland episodes from Tennessee. Devo things only got worse when I go into more episode's about Gangs and travel, house hunters international, the grammys. Vexed as a matter of fact until I tuned into watch the media report nothing was happening. I look at this from a fans perspective there isn't anything to do try talk about it very sad incident. There is also alot of news clips coming thru about the Singer have some time please take look for these collaborations; a letter from Bobby Brown is available here. Three things that don't seem to be going away anytime soon: Twitter, the NBA and Linsanity.

Celtics’ Rajon Rondo headed to Lakers?

The Los Angeles Lakers are in need of a point guard and the word is that the team wouldn't mind doing a deal with the Boston Celtics to land Rajon Rondo. Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak tells Lakers.com that there is definitely something he'd like to do before the trading deadline: "If there were a way for us to get a 25-year-old, All-Star, ball-handling guard we'd love to do it … but that's not likely in February. So you look at other alternatives, and see if it's better than what you have. That's all." As Hoopsworld points out, Rondo is the only 25-year-old, All-Star, ball-handling guard in the league right now. Sources also tell the site that, in exchange for Rondo, the Celtics "have interest" in forward/center Pau Gasol, who has two years left on his contract after this season. Gasol is averaging 16.4 points, 10.1 rebounds and 0.5 blocks per game. Rondo is averaging 13.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 9.8 assists per game for the Celts.
