-“It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”
-“Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.”
-“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”

He seems like a fun person and a bit of a ladies man. Maybe all work and no play may not be the best way to get smarter. But the best way is to experience new things and learn as you go along

Rwandan Genocide

November 12, 2012

This was one of the most shameful atrocities committed. In 100 days 800,000 died. The animosity between the Tutsi and Hutus did not just start in 1994. It was built up over numerous years.
Tutsis were the upper class and oppressed the lower class Hutus.
But these two races spoke the same language and had the same religion.
Though the ethnic differences were magnified during the Belgian rule, it was already obvious.
The Belgians even separated people with ID card that told your race.
Radios and politicians called Tutsi’s cockroaches for god’s sake
In 100 days around 800,000 people died in the genocide. The world could have helped and stopped the genocide. The UN could have intervened but our countries felt Rwanda wasn’t worth the vote. We could have helped. But we didn’t.
Let’s hope this never repeats and the world will work together to help.

I think you have reached the peak of fame once a dinosaur is named after you. J.K. Rowling is a brilliant writer who takes you to a whole new world. Her books have such wealth in the detail that it is amazing to most.
It also show scientist have such great humour. Stephen Colbert actually made a campaign to get a spider named after him like Neil Young. Aptostichus stephencolberti was later born. Frank Zappa has many species named after him, seems his music is popular in the scientific community.
Scientists are wonderfully quirky

An immortal jellyfish

An immortal jellyfish

They are such elegant creatures. If humans were immortal we may have used it to get richer or rule worlds. But these jellyfish live peacefully with their surroundings. These days we are getting more people and longer lives. Instead of being peaceful we ravage the lands of its wealth.Obviously no-one can chose how many children another can bear nor their right to live, but we could improve ourselves to live sustainably. Also educate the masses on having to many children. Maybe the Catholics could reverse what they feel on birth control as those Catholic Africans are suffering most by this rule.
Humanity do not rule the Earth we are merely guests. Let’s not overstay our welcome and make sure we do what is right for our planet. What is the point to so much progress if there will be no planet functioning left. We will have nice houses and gadgets but a lack of food and animals.
We are messing with forces greater than our abilities. Not god, but the Earth’s precious ecosystems.
Let us love peacefully like this creature who frolics the sea with the greatest of elegance and propriety.

Parenting

Since when has parenting become a numbers game. How many gadgets your child owns? How many hours of a day you spend with your child? How much money you spend on them? How many A+’s they get?

Just spending time isn’t enough it should be quality. I had a busy working mom but when we spent time we did it properly. I went to museums, galleries and I learned to sew, knit and paint.
Also tuition is a joke (not music). If your child is coping tuition from an early age is useless. It turns learning into a bore and a chore, let kids be kids. They have a lot to worry if later. Also things like tuition at an early age can make a child close minded. For them to learn take them places like museums where the displays are cool and they can learn (children love visuals). Just let them have fun.
My mom did now in my teens I always get top grades and am an all rounder. Due to my mom’s parenting I love to LEARN anything anytime. Liking learning is quite handy at school.
