My name is George Collins and I will be running for Nairobi governorship position in the 2022 elections My campaign will focus on issues affecting Nairobians Rather than opponent Attack. I’ll be running not because I want to prove appoint, neither I’m I running to shift the political argument to Young people. Am running because of the need for change in the city: unity of neighborhoods over divisions, hope for all over fear and progress on living standards over cartel domination. Who am I to make this call? I’m a progressive!!
An elephant took a bath in a river and was walking on the road. When it neared a bridge, it saw a pig fully soaked in mud coming from the opposite direction. The elephant quietly moved to one side, allowed the dirty pig to pass and then continued its onward journey.
The unclean pig later spoke to its friends in arrogance, “See how big I am; even the elephant was afraid of me and moved to one side to let me pass”.
On hearing this, some elephants questioned their friend, the reason for its action. Was it out of fear?
The elephant smiled and replied, “I could have easily crushed the pig under my leg, but I was clean and the pig was very dirty. By crushing it, my leg will become dirty and I wanted to avoid it. Hence, I moved aside.”
_This story reveals :_
Realized souls will avoid contact with negativity not out of fear, but out of desire to keep away from impurity though they are strong enough to destroy the impurity.
You need not react to every opinion, every comment, or every situation.

China’s nuclear option of dumping US bonds would cause absolute chaos in global markets
The ongoing tit-for-tat tariff exchange between China and the US could push Beijing to strike back with the so-called ‘nuclear option’ – dumping its vast holdings of US Treasury bonds.
While the move would be partly self-defeating for China, it would also have devastating consequences for global financial markets, Sourabh Gupta, a senior fellow at the Institute for China-America Studies in Washington told RT.
Vienna has no intention of ditching Nord Stream 2 despite US pressure – Austrian president
Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen says Vienna has no plans to withdraw from the Russian-led Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project as the country’s energy giant, OMV, has made huge investments in the enterprise.
“Austria is not going to leave the Nord Stream 2 project, and Austrian oil and gas corporation OMV especially,” Van der Bellen said during a joint news conference after talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin ahead of the Sochi Dialogue Forum.
It’s coming ahead of the 30th anniversary of the Tiananmen crackdown.
China has blocked Wikipedia to varying degrees over the years, but now that censorship appears to be farther-reaching. A recent Open Observatory of Network Interference report has shown that China started blocking Wikipedia in all languages sometime in April, not just the Chinese-language version as has been the case since 2015. The Wikimedia Foundation told AFP that it hadn’t received any notices regarding the block.
