RACE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE, EITHER A RACIST OR NOT | Stephen Wise

Image
let's face it that people like people who are or looks similar to them. often times when things get rocky, harsh or tough, it is no longer about your ideas or skills. It is simply because people don't like you even without knowing they dislike you. Do you agree with me? racism is the extreme instance of this.
As a foreigner, to make people like or love you, you must need to dig deep in other to find out what your similarities are with those around you rather than focusing on the differences.
while it is germane, expedient to respect your own culture and traditions, following your residing country's customs and culture will make your acceptance more clear and easier.
Being one of them should be, and it is the first step to your success and survival as a foreigner. You should not/cannot fake your love of foreign culture, so you must build your understanding, tolerate and appreciate the local culture first.
This will prompt you to read vast, immerse yourself in their culture and…

BURSTED! Congolese Dr. Denis Mukwege Quits the COVID19 Task Force

Image
Nobel Peace laureate Dr Denis Mukwege has resigned as head of a local task force fighting Covid-19 in eastern DRC in frustration at the government’s response to the crisis. He said a lack of coordinated action had crippled his work. Two months into his job as vice-president of a special health commission set up to fight Covid-19 in South Kivu province, Denis Mukwege called it a day on Wednesday, blaming organisational problems. In a statement, he cited "weaknesses in organisation and clarity between the various teams in charge of the response to the pandemic in South Kivu" in the government's response.  Mukwege said that it took more than two weeks to get coronavirus test results from the national reference lab in Kinshasa, which was a "major handicap for our strategy based on testing, identifying, isolating and treating". Sources from the national response team have acknowledged the resource shortage but have vowed that, as of next week, test results will be a…

A BRIEF ON PHILIPPINES NATIONAL FLAG | Stephen Wise

Image
This research was done willingly for the benefit of all, especially those who do not have chance for research and those who have not been opportune to hear the history about the Philippines flag, either a Filipino or foreigner. Though a foreigner, the zeal was enkindled as a result of my love to the Filipino people at large. In this article, I will brief about the construction, color, Symbols, the historical and current flag of the Philippines and other representations. The National Flag of the Philippines (Filipino: Pambansang Watawat ng Pilipinas) is a horizontal flag bicolor with equal bands of royal blue and crimson red, with a white, equilateral triangle at the hoist. In the center of the triangle is a golden-yellow sun with eight primary rays, each representing a Philippine province. At each vertex of the triangle is a five-pointed, golden-yellow star, each of which representing one of the country's three main island groups—Luzon, Visayas (though originally referring to Pan…

WHERE THERE IS LIGHT, THERE'S LIFE | StephenWise

Image
Early this Sunday morning, on my meditation desk, the question about ‘light’ bothered my mind and my intellect got illuminated and I began to reason, research and write. The notion of light has greatly influenced centuries of philosophical speculation and led to metaphysical, cosmological, and noetic theories. In the mythologies of early cultures and religions, light was conceived as an important condition not only of life but also of sight and knowledge. Although usually connected with the divine, in many religions light was not so much a constituent as an attribute of the deity–a life-giving factor, a cause of happiness, wealth, health, knowledge, and beauty. Light as a Symbol: Light is one of the most universal and fundamental symbols. It is the spiritual and the divine, it is illumination and intelligence. Light is the source of goodness and the ultimate reality, and it accompanies transcendence into the Nirvana of Buddhist doctrine. It is the SUN, and it is the avenger of evil force…

I CAN ONLY MAINTAIN MY HAPPINESS BY CHOOSING WHAT IS RELEVANT TO ME | David Antia

Image
The most astonishing thing I have realised over time is that people don't progressively become happier as their status in life increases.Let's take instances in this white knuckle ride. Think of yourself being in a job that pays you 40,000Naira in a month. You have got needs to meet and wants to fulfil. Then you are afraid that the job isn't paying enough . What happen? Your worries lead you to become sad ,unhappy and unfulfilled. Assuming that on the eve of the day after work while you sit in your couch drinking a sad sweet coffee, an old friend calls you to announce a new job offer that pays 70,000Naira.. The question I want to raise here is; Does this new pay have what it takes to make you happy for a lifetime?

While I allow you to chew over that, let us consider yet another instance. When we contest for a position (maybe political) or a prize and eventually wins. Does the outcome keep us at the state of perpetual happiness? OK, how about the losers of elections and co…
