Certain sensitive issues create trouble for naysayers who act innocent willing to overpower the police for example obtaining weapons?? it's a sin the morals which are enacted by forefathers and presidential candidates.

25th African Union (AU) Heads of State and Government Summit

Hello, Today I was watching the final moments of the Le-Mans 24 Hour race and would like to post this update because the country has been celebrating and buzzing with events. If you look at the headlines corruption and theft etc have been mentioned plenty, the eradication of poverty, illiteracy, disease, terrorism, the environment the response to emergent threats at various counties. What takes place during the week is reported in the news don't know exactly when citizens are going to sit and debate these matters, since attacks in Garissa, Kenya. What took place as gunmen drove towards a University College campus and opened fire the security guards weren't called i'm sure it doesn't matter if the campus was a haven for criminals it's not very unusual for such a scene to be depicted on television screens.

People who live and had to sit reading the headline in those areas have access to cars didn't someone attempt to provide their assistance, but turn around and become a scapegoat? someone walking can get upset and react to what already happened in the media the other way correct. If you went to the holiday celebrations rally at the park the presidents speech wasn't very clear it was alright they talked and left in a motorcade. I had to view it online didn't sound like they were ashamed to be there but I myself am a victim I paid attention am not a coward sitting in a prison. They then went to the railway engineers the company constructing the countries main projects to hear what they had to say, they have made promises to look forward to better faster reliable transport. I want to let it be known this is an important milestone for the Kenyan railway system an important construct costing millions. Can we agree about something despite the travel ban imposed on travelers arriving from the Middle East the schedule remains the same a phone has been ruled out, it doesn't cause train crashes but human error does. The leader has been to many areas parts of East-Africa talking to foreigners sometimes for hours, days. Who is wondering about the farming industry? the titles handed out what does all this mean from a foreign standpoint let's dialog, citizens need to be told not to despise his gratitude as third president. Just like in Asia when peasant workers and miners encounter accidents they need compensation how about now? these counties make news headlines do we need to read between the lines honestly. What made the news? East-Africa sits and responds to terrorists in Garissa, the railway construction it doesn't appear worth it mining and promoting criminal wrongdoing the confusion must end. Let's promote tourism settlements like in South Africa promotes hatred I know enough about where I came from since leaving Nairobi Africa has become a thing of the past with stars taking the front seat. The railway does look "worth it" mining and promoting your governance when the tourism sectors takes a beating no laughing matter it became dangerous I notice certain crowds leaving let's deDeescalate it. As president Uhuru Kenyatta visits specific countries let's hope he's not lambaste him in public, the weather has been rough the Vice President and him stand next to these construction projects the railway masterminds. When is he going to address cabinet there are view points the media highlights to the public. How many diplomats number unknown their maybe not on the agenda but international participants looking forward to visiting aren't listening to leaked information. Let's make sure that nothing ends up on the front news that puts freedom in jeopardy items such as the nations flag following these violent reactions, things which never work. Financial the president maybe does want to depart in a hurry, onto places nobody has seen or heard of what about the countries history? just to talk about promotions and the Olympics now the Fifa scandal. A kenyan abroad does intend to obtain merchandise and be given support a donation perhaps no matter the consequence of someone's positive/negative response towards them.

Rant: SNTweet

Silicon Valley: Twitter CEO Dick Costolo had it tough

I just watched the news about twitter reshaping it's strategy and whatever else they are asking from viewers because they want a new CEO. It's alright for it to come up with such an idea to begin with I first noticed the social network site when someone mentioned where they were supposed to be during that particular day, anyway it was a unique post I didn't expect such a statement to reach a climax or culminate into naming itself after google. What bothered me is these tech companies try and get rich from users let me explain take two letters from the alphabet, don't you realize it's English. But does anybody care about about tech giants making money the old school way someone is actually learning from such a conversation. It could have been named something else not twitter, this sounds very much like a convention center nightmare. Because I wasn't looking forward to using something I noticed placed under ticket master, someone could get it confused with someplace uncommon to most people. So i'm upset with the way this startup came up with the name and then the simple way it's used you type in a sentence and it's stacked over other words. I didn't come up with the idea to use simple sentences but since I no longer work I find it challenging for such a thing to be covering up office employees mistakes. A CEO should take responsibility for not just who puts on the pants or how you get to actually purchasing the pants, techies avoid the argument they create pitfalls when they talk on and on about bitcoin, when really the garbage is full and some inventor is getting rich controlling the way people think. I listen to a lot of music why don't they just come clean and explain exactly to people why the war in Iraq was fought the way it was? why the war on drugs is publicized the way it is? why certain individuals end up taking the blame when things like the flag get burned. If you ask me I think twitter should be blamed for many things not just for the webcam, waste of time cash shortages, loud music etc. But for the way it's users have turned against freedom and justice in America and instead ignoring the many cultures which built and trusted the web for media publicity. Much happens on a typical day sometimes the media posts news articles tweeting is a waste of my time, I wasn't all too impressed to have arrived for a music concert and people acting a certain way, could it be because the web is no longer safe. Should I be concerned about where they're taking the last dollar i'm worried about when the CEO steps down what will & won't happen? they have biz startups all over town some don't look to be making a single dime. But I noticed the immigrants hired to work at fast food joints at the airport etc at such a place they're not from silicon valley or cash strapped California, they're foreigners unable to buy land. Is the media trying to emphasize to people that certain individuals who did surf the web cannot, get employment or whatever penniless lazy. I don't want to buy into it but communicating like that through the cyber maybe isn't cheap it costs I want a job to but i'm looking employment is like loathing but the rich living in north america got stuff to buy. How come Twitter isn't helping make computer use affordable? why argue it's anti-trust anyway for them to sell chicken and offer computer users personal information sorry if I made immigrants upset. I filled my taxes and my IRS return isn't what I had expected i'm confused it's either their entitled to run with doing that online it's getting all the attention because it rhymes with me personal name. It didn't take much to make it work why think about deleting images when really your all they focus on next to work at the office? why fall short of expectations life is short profit doesn't mean anything to a boss for certainly the show ends people's feelings get hurt. Because of this kind of website it's now easy to share information no matter you race or ethnic background. Something they desperately don't own, inventors should know better than to just manipulate the economy with an internet startup such as twitter.

Video of officer who drew gun on black teens raises tension

I wasn't looking forward to viewing this on television it happened this past weekend, I normally realize someone is being ignorant when they refuse to talk or act in disobedience to someone's home & family. I had friends and we would walk to the store it's all over the globe now and I don't know how to explain over a computer what should and shouldn't get done, where we need to go. Alot happens communicating and showing up at the wrong time is probably the reason that starts conflicts, someone's home should not be disrespected I realize and understand that part of the argument. On the weekend many things happen people sometimes go to the area and local shopping mall not everyone has cash, the fact that there isn't anything to do puts local residents and neighborhood watch on high alert. I always used to run into away from school it's a mistake a misfortune walking past someone's home gives the audience the assumption that everything is is going to be all right it isn't your going to be bullied for it. Your left to control someone else's mistakes all the time I hear about the hate and the lying, Texans are loosing ground because of such accidents. Instances where nobody is to blame but your parents and individuals screaming ignoring their own trouble arrest them. I am not saying these children aren't to blame but come on? how many times is someone going to witness a black man getting murdered or arrested? because he got a nice car or didn't know the law. The police patrolman has to take the blame it just appears like there is a cover up real problems plaguing that community, it could be anything silence etc. I would like to know from the news report what that girl wearing a bikini has to say, she seemed to be shouting loud remarks is she abnormal? I had they organized a protest after the girl's father flipped enough about the verbal beat downs. Maybe sometime we respect young girls and don't harass the ladies like they did that girl and those young men. McKinney Mayor says the incident was "not indicative of our community""It does not define us."

It was an interesting matchup the Finals aired on Sports ESPN/ABC doesn't matter what went down it was sorta like a close tie but it did appear like they were shouting at each other. I noticed from the clips before the commercial how one of the Warriors was screaming at his teammate to box them Cavaliers, I wasn't looking forward to seeing stuff like the basketball getting shot right before half time but that's when I lost interest and switched it off. They weren't even serious because it started well I do assume the close tie was going to maybe last until the last minute but why show them winning or beating Cleveland when it's OT Two minutes left i'm not into drinking minute maid but why all the closeness and uncomfortable look on the basketball court. Lebron James was ridiculed before the finals but I think he tried to speak to his teammates and media about the backlash of any looser hating on them. So it simply wasn't a win/win situation they did the same thing they've done to get them on top Golden State always pulls out some kind of trick question and generally it's to make their opponents loose, if your following up on the finals let's just say one coach kinda controlled the court because it's the end and i'm returning to find the other guy standing around walking away with his staff it's game over. I like the term creative because it's unusual the team which is most in control of the final destination of the game may end up winning anytime anyplace. The Warriors went ahead 108-98 on free throws with 1:16 to play. James' layup with 8.9 seconds left accounted for Cleveland's only points in overtime. James, who missed three shots and had two turnovers in overtime, walked off the court in frustration as time expired. Incredible season at the end of the game they asked Curry about what he thought about the game and the guy just dissed the mic going on about something I don't exactly know what he said but it looked like he screwed the fans with some yellow kicks. Meanwhile notice Cavs' Irving being evaluated by team doctors afterwards I see him throw his Cleveland jersey and ignoring the craving to continue showing up playing along as a team next to Lebron James. I intend to see them accomplish the next to last mission especially with this kind of squad.
