2Pac – Do For Love

Brilliant. Remember the days when music was music. We get advice and messages everyday through music but seems we don’t listen. Or we try and distance ourselves from the situations. Ummmm

Oh well………

Swine Flu – Tsunami conspiracy

Flu

Influenza

 

I’m sure a few in the last few days have had a scare of the “scarry” swine flu. A sniff here, a sniff there can get one headed for the padded room – paranoia takes over – more like “i see dead people”. Even Barack Obama had a scare – arguablythe most protected man in the world.  So the same question as a few posts back – how safe are we.

What is this swine flu business anyway? Well here is a link to wikipedia and for those who do not know much about it – that could be a perfect explanation for the disease.

Not scared yet? Well, remember (lol-remember lol) the 1918 flu pandemic – the millions killed worldwide.  So if you thought all the huss and fuss about Swine flu is bullocks – well – think again.  it’s here – and it’s deadly and be warned.  No this isn’t another of  timbo’s conspiracy theories (followers of my previous blog may know of other conspiracies – Night Clubs, FACEBOOK, Scientology, Zuma, Mugabe…the lot) – it’s real, and precaution should be taken. Precaution number one – don’t go to Mexico – well, not now, seeing as the outbreak started there.

That said though – this has conspiracy written all over it. I mean it’s open for exploitation.  Remember the Tsunami in Asia – the number of people killed. Well, the thought process behind that was it was God’s punishment. Read about it here – a report claiming Christians were spared by the tsunami – after having been refused to celebrate Christmas and were told to go to a high hill to celebrate their “Holy Day” – and therefore the man upstairs “responded”. Open for discussion huh? i thinks its bullocks though – oh, yes I am a Chrictian – staunch Catholic! Something to do a bit of research on huh – here is something else interestig to ready : Saved By Humility

Anyway, on the Swine flu tip –  i think we need prayer.

till next time

South Africa Votes – IT Alternatives

Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela

The moment most of Africa, and i must say the world been looking forward to.  One can be forgiven for thinking this was 1994 all over again – South Africans take to the polls, amidst questions, doubts and fear over the favorite and possibly next president – Jacob Zuma.

It has been a rollercoaster time for the vaguely rich nation, with possibly the best candidate for presidency in the country, Thabo Mbeki, being ousted from his post, resign he did but he was forced.  Prominent members of the ANC quit, a new party (Cope) was established and there has been real competition for once in the polls and majority usually held by the ANC is undewr threat.  One can only imagine the consequencies had Cope been able to field a properly qualified and competent candidate for presidency.

Large turnout

Large turnout

So voter turn out was large, people had their say, and early signs are Jacob Zuma will be the next president.  Yes with the rape allegations and corruption charges still not letting their threshold on the feared man.

Eastern Cape Province, Cope official Gerlad Yona was shot and died after attacked at his home, yet you do not see this making much headlines.  It’s almost as if it is “currently” being treated as trivial, with most, if not every, report on the case just stating a few paragraphs and ending on how Cope had injected excitement, shortage of ballot papers and peaceful votes.  So much for transparency – are these the first signs of a Zima led governement. YES I SAID IT!!  It’s rather sad though. But then again, they say we cannot pass judgement as he has not had his chance, and every new president can be termed a risk (unless of course you’re the saviour of nations Obama lol…smh), so we wait – question though is – Is this a risk worth taking.

Earth Day – make it a holiday? Bring out the Hybrids

It’s that time of the year again. Appreciation of the beauty that is the earth.  Some may not care about Earth Day and may have according to them “Valid Reasons” why this day should not be recognised and blah blah..However, think about it.  As much faith as a Christian have faith in Christmas, how about those who believes in Earth Day?

See, we may demand respect and time to celebrate the “Birth of Jesus” on Christmas and expect not to go to work, have a holiday and sit home and relax because it is Christmas – respect for Christians.  How about respect for Earth Day as well.  They say give as you expect to get – how about it?

earth-dayYou can find out more abhout Earth Day and it’s origin from here. Sometimes it is simply acceptin the little things things in life we usually take for granted.  Reminds me of the beach – ever stood on the water’s edge and just stare at the seemingly endless pond and wonder “How did this get her”.  Ever thought of the reasons behind Life on Earth and well, why we cannot exist on other planets..why it had to be that the earth was at the perfect point from the Sun that would support life.

Whatever your belief – whether it was God given or coincidence – the beauty that is this earth is worth at least a day in a year for recognition and appreciatioin, and well, maybe a bit of the all up in your face Al Gore speeches – lets save the earth, and if you have a Hybrid, maybe its the day to drive one..

all that said – its only a moment of one’s time for appreciation of the phenomenon that has baffled many an idiot and geniuses..

till next time – 2seconds and 30mins for the earth. What a beauty!
