Education should be free for all children of the world - @LokomoPeter @RugyendoQuotes


About 6yrs ago, German's Chancellor Angela Merkel set a precident that most Africans missed. She declared #FreeTuition for International Students. There was an uproar of some sort.

There was one interview where she was asked about that policy. She said something like (I paraphrase) "If we keep demanding International Students to pay our exhorbitant fees, we exclude many brilliant students from poor countries and families yet they all need to be given the opportunity".

Since Merkel introduced that policy of no tuition for International Students, many other European countries have been eliminating tuition for International Students. GOOGLE it.

What is interesting is before Chancellor Merkel asked for no Tuition for International Students, MIT had put all their courses online for free (most). And MIT did this in 2007. MIT is one of those schools one is lucky to attend. All these years free online courses for the same courses as someone who flies to Boston and pays something like $65,000 minimum per year.

Ugandans should consider taking the free courses from MIT via the MIT Open Course Ware. Here is the link.

USA company embeds microchips in its employees


The microchips Three Square Market employees had injected in their hands are about the size of a big grain of rice.  THREE SQUARE MARKET

This company embeds microchips in its employees, and they love it

By MIT TECHNOLOGY REVIEW

Posted on Aug 17, 2018

Last August, 50 employees at Three Square Market got RFID chips in their hands. Now 80 have them.

When Patrick McMullan wants a Diet Dr Pepper while he’s at work, he pays for it with a wave of his hand. McMullan has a microchip implanted between his thumb and forefinger, and the vending machine immediately deducts money from his account. At his office, he’s one of dozens of employees who have been doing likewise for a year now.

McMullan is the president of Three Square Market, a technology company that provides self-service mini-markets to hospitals, hotels, and company break rooms. Last August, he became one of roughly 50 employees at its headquarters in River Falls, Wisconsin, who volunteered to have a chip injected into their hand.

The idea came about in early 2017, he says, when he was on a business trip to Sweden—a country where some people are getting subcutaneous microchipsto do things like enter secure buildings or book train tickets. It’s one of very few places where chip implants, which have been around for quite a while, have taken off in some fashion.

The chips he and his employees got are about the size of a very large grain of rice. They’re intended to make it a little easier to do things like get into the office, log on to computers, and buy food and drinks in the company cafeteria. Like many RFID chips, they are passive—they don’t have batteries, and instead get their power from an RFID reader when it requests data from the chip (McMullan’s chip includes identifying information to grant him access to the building, as well as some basic medical information, for instance).

Three Square Market CEO Todd Westby enters the company's office by holding his microchipped hand near an RFID reader. THREE SQUARE MARKET

A year into their experiment, McMullan and a few employees say they are still using the chips regularly at work for all the activities they started out with last summer. Since then, an additional 30 employees have gotten the chips, which means that roughly 80 of the company’s now 250 employees, or nearly a third, are walking, talking cyborgs.

“You get used to it; it’s easy,” McMullan says. As far as he knows, just two Three Square Market employees have had their chips removed—and that was when they left the company.

Sam Bengtson, a software engineer, says he uses his chip 10 to 15 times a day. At this point, swiping his hand over an RFID reader plugged into his computer is no different from typing in his password on a keyboard, he says.

Steve Kassekert, vice president of finance, is so used to using his hand to pay for soda at work that he was annoyed when the RFID reader on the vending machine went down a couple of months ago.

“It’s just become such a part of my routine,” he says.

The company is also exploring some ways to use microchips outside the body. McMullan says in August and September it is running tests at two hospitals—one in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and another in Hudson, Wisconsin—that will verify when doctors and nurses wash their hands. (They’ll wear bracelets incorporating a chip that they can scan on an RFID reader to turn on a sink—something that has been tried before.)

Nick Anderson, an associate professor in public health sciences at the University of California, Davis, says the privacy and security of any information stored on the chips is an obvious concern. The information gathered by readers could give lots of details about employees’ comings and goings, and someone could in theory ping your chip with a reader to find out what’s on it.

“You can sniff it if you’re at a bus stop,” he says.

McMullan says only some of the information stored on the chip in his hand is encrypted, but he argues that similar personal information could be stolen from his wallet, too.

There’s also the chance—and it seems certain to happen eventually—that the technology inside the employees’ bodies will become outdated. Bengtson, at least, is concerned about this.

“There may need to be a—dare I say—upgrade program, or something like that,” he says.

Climate Change is no longer fake, listen to our kids on #ClimateStrike


The child who started the #ClimateStrike is not older than most of our own teenagers. Greta does not come from an impoverished country facing droughts, hunger and debilitating diseases. She is a solid child. Listening to some word leaders disparaging her, I asked one of my kids (teenager) "What do you think of Greta and her work?"

Never ask your teenage child for an opinion. They will beat you black and bleu hands down.

My child replied "In 40yrs from now, you will be dead. I will be raising your grand children on an inhabitable planet. You adults must listen to our voices because it is us who will have to clean up your mess".

The most prominent science researchers keep telling us about Climate Change and yet in our arrogance, we rubbish science. All we have to do is listen to the voices inside us. Our children. These kids have valid concerns and are telling us what we must do now.

Here is a song by a 10yr old child in British Columbia singing about oceans.

Video: A Child’s Song About Tar Sands

Kid can sing. Video has hit almost  100,000 views.

It’s got a good beat and you can weep to it.

en-year-old Ta’Kaiya Blaney stood outside Enbridge Northern Gateway’s office on July 6, waiting for officials to grant her access to the building. She thought she could hand deliver an envelope containing an important message about the company’s pipeline construction. But the doors remained locked.

“I don’t know what they find so scary about me,” she said, as she was ushered off the property by security guards. “I just want them to hear what I have to say.”

The Sliammon First Nation youth put in a great effort learning about environmental issues and the pipeline in particular, and hoped to share her knowledge and carefully crafted words. Enbridge officials said they were unable to provide Ta’Kaiya space or time and failed to comment because the Vancouver office is staffed by a limited number of technical personnel. Their headquarters are located in Calgary.

So Ta’Kaiya stood outside, accompanied by three members of Greenpeace, her mother, and a number of reporters and sang her song “Shallow Waters.”

She co-wrote her song after learning of Enbridge’s bid to build twin 1,170 km pipelines to transport oil from the Alberta tar sands to British Columbia’s north coast. Like the proposedTransCanada Keystone XL pipeline that would connect the Canadian tar sands to the U.S. Gulf Coast, Enbridge’s Alberta-B.C. pipeline is widely opposed, largely because it would bring hundreds of oil supertankers a year to the Great Bear Rainforest – an ecologically significant region along a particularly dangerous route for tankers.

“Oil pipelines and tankers will give people jobs, but if there is an oil spill like the [BP spill] in the Gulf of Mexico, that will take other people’s jobs and the wildlife will die,” said Ta’Kaiya.

According to a Greenpeace website, “Twenty-two years after the Exxon Valdez tragedy, crude still coats Alaska’s shores. Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trustee Council estimates that 21,000 gallons of the 11 million gallons of crude oil that bled from the stranded tanker Exxon Valdez on the night of March 23, 1989 remain in the subsurface.”

And Dustin Johnson, a Tsimshian youth who works at the Sierra Club in Edmonton, says that the tankers that are proposed to transport tar sands crude from northern Alberta to the B.C. north coast are much larger than the Exxon Valdez. “If the tar sands pipelines are successfully built on the coast,” he said, “this would lead to at least 250 tankers per year navigating the intricate B.C. coastline – a risk the salmon- and ocean-dependent Northwest coast communities and economies cannot afford to make.”

Video Description:

10 year old Ta’Kaiya Blaney is Sliammon First Nation from B.C., Canada. Along with singing, songwriting, and acting, she is concerned about the environment, especially the preservation of marine and coastal wildlife. Shallow Waters was a semi-finalist in the 2010 David Suzuki Songwriting Contest, Playlist for the Planet. The song was recorded in studio by Audio Producer Joe Cruz. Footage from Vancouver, BC was filmed by Colter Ripley. Footage of the traditional ocean-going canoe from the Squamish Nation (Burrard Inlet, North Vancouver, BC) ; Ta’Kaiya in traditional cedar bark regalia (Tofino, BC); the Oil Refinery in Burrard Inlet; and the Vancouver Aquarium was filmed by Tina House.

Greenpeace Message From 10-Year Old Ta'Kaiya - 'Protect Our Coast From Oil spills'



Greenpeace Message From 10-Year Old Ta'Kaiya - 'Protect Our Coast From Oil spills'

March 24, 2011 Open Letter to Canadian politicians, My name is Ta'Kaiya Blaney. I am 10-years-old. I live in North Vancouver and am from the Sliammon Nation. My name means "special water." I am writing to you because the Enbridge Corporation is planning to build a pipeline from the tar sands of Alberta to Kitimat, BC. I thought it would be very risky for our coast so I wrote a song, called "Shallow Waters" about an oil spill happening in the shallow waters. You will be debating Bill C-606 soon, if an election is not triggered, which would ban oil tankers from our northwest coast. I am sharing my song's music video and a personal message to encourage you to vote in favour of the bill. Today is the anniversary of the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska. Even today, 22 years later, oil still remains a few inches under the surface of the water. With this song, I hope to encourage government officials, people of British Columbia, and people across the world will realize the dangers of oil pollution, replace jobs that destroy the environment with jobs that help the environment. I ask government and corporate officials such as yourselves change your plans stop oil tanker traffic on BC's coast and in waters around the world. Please feel free to share my letter and video with others. All my relations, Ta'Kaiya Blaney For more information, please read Stephanie Goodwin's blog: https://ift.tt/2szyaCP Shallow Waters was a semi-finalist in the 2010 David Suzuki Songwriting Contest, Playlist for the Planet.

Wikipedia's Article of the Day December 1, 2019: Banksia marginata


Banksia marginata, the silver banksia, is a species of tree or woody shrub found throughout much of southeastern Australia. It ranges from the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia to north of Armidale, New South Wales, and across Tasmania and the islands of Bass Strait.

It grows in various habitats, including Eucalyptus forest, scrub, heathland and moorland. B. marginata varies widely in habit, ranging from a small shrub, 20 cm (7.9 in) high, to a large tree, 12 m (40 ft) tall. Its narrow leaves are linear. Its yellow flower spikes appear in late summer, eventually fading to brown and then grey and developing woody follicles bearing the winged seeds.

Many species of bird, in particular honeyeaters, forage at the flower spikes, as do native and European honeybees. Although the silver banksia has been used for timber, it is most commonly seen as a garden plant, with dwarf forms being commercially propagated and sold.

UGANDA: Iryn Namubiru and Hilderman are a perfect duo


#IrynNamubiru #NzeNawe

This song is a perfect of complimenting each other in a song. Dr. Hilderman complements Namuniru very perfectly. She is very good. I think her natural voice is Alto and she trained well.

I have listened to some of her music where she will be singing Alto and then changes to Soprano and drops to Base and then swings to Alto. What a wonderful voice to have. She maintains perfect control of her voice in all her songs.

GRATITUDE: When you have no food in the fridge!!!


I had to drive to Shediac tonight because I have had no milk, cheese or meat for the last 4 days. I have been on Chai mukalu.

But it shocked me because I even dislike meat and I am 95% vegetarian. But not having these items in the fridge came as a shock.

Now I know what hunger is. Mazima I am even cooking porc and I cannot even stand the smell but tonight, I wanna eat like a #Munene and I swear, I am gonna drink the full litre of milk in one night.

By the way, in our family we only drink homo milk with all that wonderful fat because I miss my mother's fat filled good milk!! Plus, when you boil it, it makes Lubonda.

MUSEVENI'S HONOURING OF MUTEESA FOR RESISTING EAC FEDERATION IS A MOCKERY



CHANGE OF GUARDS - For sinister motives, including assimilation of certain communities whose geographical identity is of great concern, Museveni has proven to be the sole ardent top advocate of the East African Community (EAC) integration.  The idea of an East African union comprising of Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania was first floated by the British colonialists in the 1920s and 1930s. 

This idea was resisted strongly in Uganda and especially Buganda.  It was feared that an East African Federation would open the doors for European settlers in Uganda. The Baganda feared that their ancient kingdom, with its cherished customs and culture would be swallowed up in the much larger polity of an East African federation and this why they were determined to resist.

The British colonialists attempted to make Kiswahili the lingual franca of East Africa.  However, the Kabaka (King of Buganda) and the church feared the spread of Kiswahili because of its association with Islam. The schools that were supposed to teach Kiswahili were controlled by the Church.

By 1953, when the British colonialists abandoned the push for the Kiswahili language, it had become the language for the armed forces because the whole of East Africa had one army - Kings African Rifles (KAR).  The British were forced to reluctantly abandon the entire idea of an East African federation.  An attempt by Obote to reintroduce Kiswahili in the late 1960s was again defeated on the same grounds.

When Andrew Cohen became  the new Governor of Uganda in January 1953,  he came with major reforms that were perceived by Buganda to have negative impact.  When the Secretary of State for the Colonies floated anew the idea of a federation for East Africa in a speech he gave in London in June 1953;, alarm bells went off in Buganda. There were strong protests from both the Lukiiko and the Kabaka. Indeed, the Baganda begun to mistrust the direction that British rule was now taking their kingdom and strong calls started emerging for Buganda to be separated from the rest of Uganda.

Since Buganda had willingly entered into what she considered an agreement of protection in 1900, she now wanted to have her independence and separate identity restored and honored by the British who however, resisted. This led to a political impasse.  A series of negotiations between the Kabaka and the Governor failed to break the stalemate. Although the Governor gave assurances that an East African federation would not be pursued without consulting Buganda which was now more anxious to protect her position by separating from the rest of Uganda. The Governor then proceeded to invoke the 1900 Agreement and demanded that the Kabaka accept specifically the British policy of developing Uganda as a unitary state. This would of course be a betrayal of the aspirations of the vast majority of the Baganda who wanted to maintain a Buganda identity and the Kabaka would not do it. On November 30, 1953, the Governor signed a declaration withdrawing British recognition from Muteesa as the Native Ruler of Buganda under clause 6 of the 1900 Agreement. The Kabaka was immediately deported to the UK where he stayed in exile until 1955.

This prejudice against Buganda Kingdom, and the Buganda in particular, was carried by the anti Iddi Amin forces in 1979.  Buganda was considered as a hostile zone with a proud community by key players in the so-called 1979 Liberation.  It is for the same.reason that the first two post Iddi Amin  Baganda Presidents, Prof. Lule and Binaisa lasted 68 days and less than a year in office respectively. 

Last week, Buganda Kingdom commemorated 50 years since Mutesa’s demise.  He was described as an African King, Knight, and President by, the Palace Chief Advisor, Apollo Makubuya who said Mutesa is one of Uganda’s heroes who should be remembered.
         "He was at the forefront of the struggle against the British colonial rule and, in particular, led the resistance against the colonial policy that aimed to add the Uganda Protectorate to the East African (EA) federation.....Mutesa’s opposition to adding the Ugandan Protectorate to the EA federation was because it was a colonial project to expand their exploitative politics."

During the same occasion, Museveni described Mutesa as Pan Africanist who worked towards the EA integration.
         "We better be clear wherever we are. If you are not an enemy of Africa, know that prosperity lies in a big market. I am happy to hear people talking about the East African Federation."
Museveni awarded the 50th anniversary Jubilee Medal to the late Sekabaka Mutesa II in eecognition of his role towards the liberation and development of the country'.

Any reasonable person who understands Museveni's ways obviously understands that his view of Muteesa is of a divisive character.  That is why for the last 33 years, Museveni has been on a mission to destroy Buganda Kingdom and nationalism.  Therefore, it can't be the same Museveni who so much cherishes the EAC integration to honour someone who vehemently opposed the integration over five decades ago.  It is just a mockery.

Today in History - November 30 MARK TWAIN - Library of Congress

Mark Twain

Samuel Langhorne Clemens, popularly known as Mark Twain, was born November 30, 1835, in Florida, Missouri, and spent his childhood in nearby Hannibal. Twain is best known for the novels set in his boyhood world beside the Mississippi River, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer External (1876) and his masterpiece, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn External(1884).The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn From the Book by Mark Twain. Everett Henry, Illustrator. Cleveland: Harris-Intertype, 1959. Language of the Land: Journeys Into Literary America. Geography & Map Division.Bird’s eye view of the city of Hannibal, Marion Co., Missouri 1869. Drawn by Albert Ruger, 1869. Panoramic Maps. Geography & Map Division

As a young man, Clemens worked as a typesetter for his brother Orion’s newspaper before following his dream of navigating the Mississippi on paddle wheel steamboats. He piloted boats for three years until the outbreak of the Civil War stopped river traffic in 1861.

Clemens wrote for the Virginia City, Nevada, newspaper Territorial Enterprise in 1862, adopting the pseudonym Mark Twain. Two years later he moved to San Francisco where his writing gained further popularity and he developed the humorous style now famous throughout the world. In 1866 he went to Hawaii as a reporter for the Sacramento Union.

Clemens joined his brother in Nevada where Orion had been appointed secretary of the territory. Roughing It, first published in 1872, is Clemens’ account of his journey. In the Prefatory, Clemens describes his writing style:

Yes, take it all around, there is quite a good deal of information in the book. I regret this very much; but really it could not be helped: information appears to stew out of me naturally, like the precious ottar of roses out of the otter. Sometimes it has seemed to me that I would give worlds if I could retain my facts; but it cannot be. The more I calk up the sources, and the tighter I get, the more I leak wisdom. Therefore, I can only claim indulgence at the hands of the reader, not justification.

Prefatory. In Roughing It, by Mark Twain. Hartford, Conn.: American Publishing Company (1891). “California As I Saw It”: First-Person Narratives of California’s Early Years, 1849 to 1900.

While in the West, Clemens stayed briefly at the California boarding house of uprooted Missourian Mrs. Lee Summers Whipple-Haslam. In her book, Early Days in California, she recalls that her mother engaged Clemens in extended conversation:

As usual with Missourians, they imparted numerous and various details of ancient forefathers, and, after lengthy discussion, decided that according to all the rules and laws of Missouri, they were cousins.

Later, when other boarders, thinking Clemens “wonderful,” asked if there were others like him in Missouri, she replied “no” and explained that “he was a Missouri freak that had broken loose from his hitching post.”Letter from Mark Twain to Gardiner Greene Hubbard, December 27, 1890. Alexander Graham Bell Family Papers at the Library of Congress. Manuscript Division

The Alexander Graham Bell Family Papers features a letter from Mark Twain to Gardiner G. Hubbard, “The Father-in-law of the Telephone,” dated December 27, 1890. In his familiar satirical style, Twain complains to Bell’s father-in-law of the poor telephone service at his home in Hartford, Connecticut. He objects that there is no night service and that he is regularly cut off while practicing his cursing. In fact, Twain enjoyed and made use of new inventions.

UGANDA: Regime atrocities on natives create ticking time bomb (VIDEO)


Very bad things are coming down. This level of anger is very dangerous. That website TPA (The People's Agency) should be taken very seriously. Yes, there is information on it that I can dispute but that site is warning people like these cop thugs of what the masses will do to them.

I hear 85% of Ugandans were born in 1980 going forward. They have never seen a coup or lived a coup in Uganda. People, it gets very ugly. Please praise Museveni silently. Or do it publicly bragging about it with your photos and videos on social media. You will remember these words. I have lived Amin's fall and the subsequent governments. I saw very ugly things.

UGANDA: Write for your audience and always KISS

When you are writing, no matter what level of education and unless it is an academic paper, the rule is KISS.

Keep
It
Simple
Stupid

Write it such that a Grade 3 (P3) student can understand it without looking up the words in a dictionary.

There are Ugandans who have written and sent me their articles and I have asked them if they know what COMMUNICATION is. It is knowing your audience. Never use big words. It makes you look stupid. AND THIS WAS TAUGHT TO ME by my Professor at University of Toronto during my masters degree. The course was on how humans seek, receive and use information.

I asked my friends why they were using fancy words that I could not even care less to use. Their articles were for Daily Monitor. Just imagine how that is even possible.

Have you ever read an article in Reuters, Associated Press, Washington Post or Voice of America that had any single word which is not used in daily English conversations?

Even Bloomberg does not do it. Yes, there are words in Bloomberg Business articles which a Grade 3 student will not understand but this is because that kid should not be trading the VIX in the first place.

Consequently, know your audience. Sure, I use big words sometimes but this is always only when the intention is to insult that particular reader. And I always end with "Just Google it".

Despite all the above, it does not hurt to have an arsenal of vocabulary in case you need it one day to insult a Muzukulu or Munyampi or any fool that tries Okukumanyila. The best way to improve your vocabulary is to read daily. READ as if your life depends on it. Because it does.

Writing for your audience:
==
Ugandans love abbreviations so phrases like the following are okay:

1. Elo dia
2. Dat scholarship, give me da link.
3. Ope u r fyn
4. Am a teacher of Inglish. I rilly nid dat job. Call mi on mai numba

If you call the above writing for your audience then you are a mutt. If you think I just made up those phrases then you do not know Uganda.

Did You Know?

In Middle English, to disparage someone meant causing that person to marry someone of inferior rank. Disparage derives from the Anglo-French word desparager,meaning "to marry below one's class." Desparager, in turn, combines the negative prefix des- with parage ("equality" or "lineage"), which itself comes from per,meaning "peer." The original "marriage" sense of disparage is now obsolete, but a closely-related sense ("to lower in rank or reputation") survives in modern English. By the 16th century, English speakers (including Shakespeare) were also using disparage to mean simply "to belittle."

Examples of disparage in a Sentence

Voters don't like political advertisements in which opponents disparage one another. It's a mistake to disparage their achievements.

ENGLISH: Word Of The Day INCOGNITO

incognito

adjective or adverb | in-kahg-NEE-toh

Definition: with one's identity concealed

Did You Know?

The ancient Greeks and Romans knew that there were times when you didn't want to be recognized. For example, a myth tells how Zeus and Hermes visited a village incognito and asked for lodging. The apparently penniless travelers were turned away from every household except that of a poor elderly couple named Baucis and Philemon, who provided a room and a feast despite their own poverty. The Romans had a word that described someone or something unknown (like the gods in the tale): incognitus, a term that is the ancestor of our modern incognito. Cognitius is the past participle of the Latin verb cognoscere, which means "to know" and which also gives us recognize, among other words.

 Examples of INCOGNITO

"I do walk around the [Las Vegas] Strip. I walk with my head down and a baseball cap on and—so far—no one has noticed. I’ve been incognito." — Paula Abdul, quoted in The Las Vegas Review-Journal, 17 Nov. 2019

"[Constance] Messmer remembers the night that the cast of 'Beverly Hills 90210' came to eat, and there were kids trying to peer in through the windows. Or the time that Sharon Stone arrived incognito, hiding underneath a big floppy hat." — Geoff Currier, The Martha's Vineyard Times, 17 Oct. 2019

CREATION: The real story and why you should only read the Bible, Confuscius


God spent 6 days creating Heaven and Earth. He took the 7th day off to rest.

In that one day while God slept, China made the rest!

UGANDA: Yowerk Museveni's Bazukulu Entitled Generation


en·ti·tled

/inหˆtฤซdld,enหˆtฤซdld/

adjective

believing oneself to be inherently deserving of privileges or special treatment.

"kids who feel so entitled and think the world will revolve around them"

BACKGROUND
This morning I blocked a Muzukulu. He is in university taking medicine. He asked me to get him a Masters scholarship in Canada for Public Health. I told him that I do not customize scholarship information. Just read what I share.

He asked me 10 times to do it and I told him my billing rate is $350/hr to be his secretary "And I am very busy".

HIM: OMG, that is the monthly salary of a doctor in Uganda. But even if you are busy, you should help me. God will reward you.

MLN: "I do not personalise service".

HIM: "For me, you will".

Come on, you are gonna earn only $350/mth and you think my parents sent me to Namagunga to be a secretary???

ENTITLEMENT. No one owes you anything. Stop demanding for things. You can also use Google!!

Your shithole medical degree might scare Ugandans but it is nul in Canada!

These kids DEMAND things. Whether you like it or not. Things our own children would never demand from us. It is really shocking.

MARTHA LEAH NANGALAMA
#TeamCommonSense

ADD ONs:

Emotional Intelligence should be taught in all Uganda schools by force. I am still shaking my head at how a 3rd year medical student in Uganda can demand that I research for him and find him scholarships for only him because he is going to be a surgeon. Like the hell my kids are gonna be operated on by a shithole surgeon in Rwakai hospital. Those people are even cannibals.

And how do you dictate to a Canadian citizen older than your mother what she should do for you? Do these kids ever stop to think why they are surgeons earning $350 per month?

It is because you are too dense to deserve better pay. In fact, you are the kind that is so entitled that you will leave your patient on the operating table and grab your iPhone to check if that nurse posted your photos from last night's date on your couple's Instagram page.

UGANDA: Business owners should take social media seriously




I just got a new follower. Now, here is where if Ugandans had not wasted 3 years trashing me for being GAY, they would have read my posts of 2013 telling them how to use social media for business. A whole beach hotel by Lake Vic only set up a Twitter account recently and has 10 followers?

Are you people even serious? You can go on the Nangalama blog and search for "How to use social media to grow your business". Companies have dedicated social media teams and you use social media as just a joke? Do you know how many sales leads you can generate via social media? Or even customer retention!!

This is no different from your social media for job prospects or your own small business. AND ENSURE YOU POST IN PROPER ENGLISH. The other day,

I blocked an Agripreneur who had excellent ideas and needed only my guidance. He kept writing broken English assuring me that it was correct and that is how he writes, texts and emails his clients. I told him "you said you started your business 3yrs ago but you are not getting new customers and some old ones are living you. And you want me to help you. Okay, I am helping you. Not AM HELPING YOU". And over and over he kept saying "Am okay with your advice".

No you are not. One cannot help a person who insists on insulting you by persistently writing broken English. I think that kid should just sell his business and go work in Oman. Even his posts alone were all bastardized English!!

I do not think Ugandans really know the power of social media. Yet, all these things, I have repeatedly told them over the last 7yrs. Why do you think dictators hate social media? Because you complain about them daily.

You can use the same platform to advertise your products and services very much like a paid Ad in a newspaper. Except it is free. You can use the same platform to advertise your skills. For example, you just got your degree (my nephew Timothy actually just got his).

His Facebook has many photos and I have no idea what he got his degree in. When posting your nice photos, you can add "I just graduated from Ndejje University with a Bachelors in Communication and I am searching for opportunities". YOU NEVER KNOW who might read your post and contact you to send your 9 page CV and 4 page cover letter.

This information might be useless to you but there are over 10m unemployed youth in Uganda.

You are always a guide

CANADA: Consider us for your future education - @LokomoPeter @RugyendoQuotes

Let me address a question some Ugandans have asked me.

"I only graduate in January, can I apply for scholarships before I convocate"?

As someone who did high school in Canada pearsoncollege.ca and undergrad in Canada trentu.ca, there is nothing like a requirement for you to have your UACE (alevel) certificate before applying for a bachelor. Our universities accept your current grades to admit you for a bachelor. The admission will usually be conditional upon submitting your final grades.

For Masters degrees, you do not have to wait to convocate and get your final transcripts. The university will admit you based on your current marks. Conditional upon sending your final transcripts.

PhD candidates face all the above. However, for a PhD, your Masters and Bachelors speak for you. Even if you have not yet completed your Masters, your current research speaks for you. In your Masters, you will likely have written some kind of dessertation. This is what you will use. PhD potentials should contact me 1 on 1 as there are other technicalities. The most wonderful thing about doing a PhD in Canada is all PhDs are fully funded and your visa getting here is for permanent residency culminating into citizenship. There used to be a quota of 5,000 PhD visas for International students. I am not sure if this quota exists but you can check out the govt website cic.gc.ca (read on a computer).

In Canada, you do not apply for a scholarship. You apply into a program and indicate that you need financial assistance. Some applications specifiy which scholarship you can apply for. KNOW WHAT YOU WANNA STUDY.

Scholarships tend to be first come first serve. Consequently, even the program, university or scholarship says the deadline is March 15th, those who applied earlier are ahead of you. I ADVISE THAT YOU APPLY by December 15th.

I will add to this link if I remember other things. Please understand that I did Alevels (IB) in Canada, bachelors in Canada and Masters in Canada. I frankly have no idea how things work for international students. I only share what I think might be.

UGANDA: MP for Bududa / Manjiya will be Martha Leah Nangalama

Future MP of Bududa Bulucheke Manjiya
Dear Uganda and people of Masaba aka Bugisu, I will be your MP in parliament for the fake elections of 2021 or 2023 (whichever year).

I will contest as an MP and will get all the votes for Male MP, Female MP and Youth MP. I will collect the salaries for 3 MPs.

MANIFESTO:
All my 3 salaries and vehicles will be donated to Bududa / Manjiya as below:

Year one - tamac the road from Mbale to Bududa

Year two - repair all schools

Year three - repair all the hospitals

Year four - triple all salaries of teachers, medics and Agriculture officers.

Year five - Establish skills academies in all of Bugisu.

Year six - hand over all work to the next generation.

I come very highly recommended by none other than Martha Leah Nangalama (aka Leah Makhame).

My retirement package will be put in a Foundation to take care of our elders.

You should vote for me because I will deliver on my promises.

You should vote for me because you need a breath of fresh air for real positive change. There shall be no more selling of your children into slavery.

Vote for me so that I can build libraries in every community.

Vote for me because I will never betray you.

Vote for me because for 35yrs, you have suffered profoundly.

Vote for me because I am your daughter.

On October 29, 2000, as my father was fighting for his last breath, he said this to me "Mayi, naramile khukhawuzi khatini inzya khufa. Ukhebilala ingo tta mayi wose Leah. Ukhebilila isi wama tta mayi wose ingukana naabi. Nga wamalile byebulaya, keno ukobole ingo uyetta balebe bowo. Ukhebilila ingo tta".

The last conversation I had with Prof. Wandira was "we sent you abroad to learn, learn and we hoped thay one day you would return home for your people".

Consequently, my returning home is an obligation to serve my people. NARUDI NYUMBANI.

WHAT POLITICAL PARTY?
Of course I will be contesting under NRM. Even I am not stupid enough not to know who has the money.  I do look terrible in yellow though. Consequently, when I write my formal apology later to HE Fointain of Youth, I will pledge total loyalty as long as he lets me wear colours which complement my skin.

You should see me in Purple. Red is wild on me too. Blue is perfect. Just colours. No yellow. It is hideous. I know Papa will allow me.

Finally, if I have promised that I will give all my income to my people of Bududa / Manjiya, how will I pay my bills???

Easy answer. I am a writer. I will sell books. Books I am writing about you. And oil companies give great pensions for which I am eligible in 2027.

UGANDA PUBLIC DISCUSSION OF SANITARY PADS IS DIVERSIONARY


CHANGE OF GUARDS - It’s no myth that menstruation has become one of the leading contributors to school dropout rates among girls in Uganda.

Many girls, especially in rural Ugandan schools, miss school and some eventually drop out because they cannot afford sanitary pads that would save them from the embarrassing leaks during their menstruation periods. The pads would also help them maintain a good standard of hygiene while they are in their periods.

Museveni pledged to provide school girls free sanitary pads during the 2016 election campaigns in West Nile. It was estimated that 30 percent of Ugandan girls from poor families miss school because of lack of sanitary towels.  However, in February 2017, Museveni's first wife who is also the minister for education, told parliament that the government didn't have enough funding for the president's $4.4 million initiative.

The announcement angered many, including the Makerere University researcher Dr. Stella Nyanzi, who called Museveni's wife a "big-thighed cow” with an “empty brain”.  Nyanzi described Museveni as a “pair of buttocks”. She went ahead and created Pads for Girls Uganda on the social media site, Facebook, to collect donations of sanitary towels. Soon, however, she was arrested and accused of insulting Museveni and his wife.

As the public debate about the subject ragged on, the government announced that sanitary pads were  to be sold free of value-added tax. Since then, several individuals and non governmental organisations have been intervening to address the situation. Some young female students have been skilled in the making and use of reusable sanitary towels from locally available materials. However, the hygiene of these reusable pads is questionable owing to limited access to clean water that is not a guarantee in some parts of Uganda.

So important are sanitary pads to keeping girls in school that the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA) has distributed 50,000 disposable pads in 14 districts of Uganda since November of 2015.

Mid this month, Parliament sought an explanation as to when government would fulfill Museveni's 2016 campaign pledge of providing free sanitary towels to school girls.

The Minister for the Presidency, Ester Mbayo, asked the House to use its appropriation role to allocate a budget for the provision of free pads. However, she said the Education Ministry would provide such details. She further noted that the Presidency Ministry is aware that girls face a number of challenges such as lack of clean sanitary facilities, changing rooms, waste disposal facilities, water and soap for washing and hygienic sanitary wear.

      "Therefore, such girls, from primary five up until senior three resort to "unhygienic substitutes such as rags, pieces of foam mattress, toilet paper or banana fibers, for menstrual management which causes considerable health risks and absenteeism, " Mbayo told MPs.

She went ahead to cite statistics from the 2012 study done by International Rescue Centre that noted that one in ten menstruating girls skip school four days every month, which is about 24 days the entire year. There are about 220 school learning days a year. She noted that though the pledge has not been fulfilled, the ministry of Education is working with some civil Society Organizations to pilot interventions on providing sanitary pads to girls in a number of districts in the country. They include Afri-pads, Uganda Red Cross, Eco-pads, Fields of Life, and plan International.

Menstruation is still taboo in many countries around the world, where it’s often considered embarrassing or shameful. Since time immemorial, our mothers and sisters managed their menstrual periods with the highest level of secrecy and privacy. The use of factory made modern sanitary towels was for the very few urban elites. The majority used improvised materials and there was no record of outbreak of associated infections.

In primary and secondary schools, a Senior Woman was designated to  manage physical and psycho-social changes associated with menstruation and sexual education in general for the girl child.

With the emergence of politics of cheep popularity,  the political leaders jumped into the fray to take advantage of the appallingly economic conditions of the majority citizens. On the contrary, if the population is economically empowered, the issue of acquisition and use of the so-called hygienically secure sanitary pads for girls and women would remain a private matter. By pretending to care for them and moreso to give empty promises iz tantamount to a mockery and is therefore diversionary.
