Models of Government structures


Model 1(This model is what we currently have)

1. National Top Government make all kind of laws and policies.

2. Government collect money through tax, selling bond note & borrowing.

3. Government give out money/budget every year to all lower entities like Counties, Cities, to ministry of “security, education, transports, agriculture, etc.”.

It is no good for 3D corrupt humans, the truth is that it is the absolutely model of the Grand Universe but it is unfit for current Earth world, it gives power too much to a few people leading to corruption and conflict of interest in many areas.

Model 2

1. National Top Government make all kind of laws, policies.

2. Government collecting money through tax, volunteer contribution.

3. The total government’s budget of this year must below the total money/assets they collected from last year.

4. Government give out money/budget every year to all lower entities like Counties to cities, to ministry of “security, education, transports, agriculture, etc.”.

It’s in this model that you give power back to people.

Model 3

1. Top Government make few laws, policies which related to nature, environment & foreign affair only

2. Smaller tier like county/city government will make their own laws & policies including tax and have power only in their own country/city.

3. Counties/Cities government collecting money from people.

4. County/Cities government will have their own budget/spending but must be lower than total money they collect.

5. Top Government will collect small amount of “net profit” from counties/cities.

6. Top Government give out money to few national brand like military, research, scouting, observers, foreign stuffs, etc.

That is just an example of new Government model, but there are 2 keys:

1. Laws, Policies.

2. Money, Budget.

Who in charge of each of these things? Is it the national or the county government? Or should it be a shared responsibility?

Don’t call Rich Successful Women whores.


The World today woke up to a good news of Kylie Jenner hitting her one Billion dollars mark making her the youngest billionaire in history at least until now displacing Mark Zuckerberg. That’s a huge amount that you’ll rarely achieve in your lifetime. Think of the well paid profession and tell me how long you’ll take to reach that net Worth.

However, her achievement has come along with many criticism more so from low class men. Some bringing the question of morality as a justification as to why she’s in that List. But let’s face it, Kylie is very influencial among men and women under the age of 35. Her cosmetic line is the envy of so many people. That’s real impact to me.

Don’t call rich , successful women whores. They do the work and no right thinking man will ever give a woman that amount of cash just to have sex or use her as a sex object in that case. It’s that moment in history, where men are suppose to man up and once more accept the impact women are making. The first step to solving a problem is acknowledging there’s one. And we’ve failed in that. Instead of us doing the work, we get involved in the loser typical blame games. Attacking their sexuality and trying to lower them down.

That brings me back home to our very own, Akothee. A friend asked my opinion on her last months viral photos and didn’t comment, but now I can. “ It’s absolutely Okay. ” This is why. Akothee is a typical reflection of the Kenyan heroic tale, starting off from scratch to actually amounting to something. That’s a story that resonates with all of us. That is a story that inspires us. Anyone in their clean conscience, shouldn’t blame another for doing their best to make a life or even a name in that order for themselves.

Tesla’s ‘secret weapon’ disappears from website and fans are panicking


The Model 3 was supposed to be Tesla’s secret weapon in the car market, but fans are panicking after it disappeared from the company’s website, Electrek’s Fred Lambert reports.

However, this might have to wait.

The UK would be ‘irresponsible’ to let Huawei into 5G, think tank warns

Chinese tech giant Huawei is facing a new attack as it tries to persuade the UK government to let it help build super-fast 5G networks in the country.
Top British cybersecurity officials are reportedly confident they can manage any risks from Huawei’s telecommunications equipment, but a report published Wednesday by the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), a top security think tank, said that would be a mistake.

11 Best Entrepreneurial Books


There is no friend as loyal as a book!”

Every entrepreneur needs an active reading list. After all, books are one of the most valuable knowledge resources.

From self-development to business best practices, here are eleven must-reads for all entrepreneurs:

  1. The Innovator’s Dilemma – Clayton M. Christensen

Why is it so difficult for big brands and major corporations to keep up with the rapid-fire evolution of their respective industries? In Clayton M. Christensen’s well-known business book, The Innovator’s Dilemma, he tackles why outstanding companies can continue to perform at optimum efficiency and still lose ownership over their market. This book serves as a history lesson as much as it is an actionable guide for business leaders who want to ensure the long-term success of their company.

  1. Never Eat Alone – Keith Ferrazzi

Every entrepreneur knows the challenge: how do I continue to build my network while I’m swamped with work? While various books attempt to answer, Keith Ferrazzi’s extremely popular book Never Eat Alone is a tactical guide to networking the right way, and the power of giving first. Here, readers will find advice on how to handle rejection, find their way into certain “inner circles,” and make the most of a conference. Ferrazzi’s approach to networking is both insightful and highly practical, and built on the proven principles he has employed in his own career.

  1. Meetings Suck – Cameron Herold

Various books talk of conducting successful meetings. However, this one is very different. How many times have you sat through a meeting and thought to yourself, “Why is this such a waste of time?” According to renowned business growth expert Cameron Herold, meetings aren’t the problem. We are. This is one of those books that helps shed some perspective on the importance of focusing on soft skills, like how to hold an effective meeting that leaves people feeling empowered. Meetings Suck is essentially a guide on how to be a better leader, by walking readers, step by step, through systems that encourage true productivity and efficiency.

  1. Unshakeable – Tony Robbins

Unshakeable is, by all accounts, a compilation of “the best of the best.” It pulls knowledge from the top financial minds in the world to create a playbook for financial freedom. For any aspiring entrepreneurs looking to learn more about managing the financial aspect of their life (both personally and professionally) or even seasoned veterans hoping to continue honing their skills, this is a must-read.

  1. All In – Bill Green

Serial entrepreneur Bill Green pulls from over forty years of business experiences to share 101 key insights that have helped him build one of the largest industrial distribution companies in the country. For aspiring entrepreneurs, this is a glimpse into what it takes to go from a startup founder to CEO of a publicly traded company. This is the sort of read that makes you realize that even the world’s most successful entrepreneurs once started as paperboys and door-to-door salesmen — and Green is no exception. All In shows the true value of committing 100% to a venture, and the level of persistence and dedication it takes to become successful.

  1. Good to Great – Jim Collins

How does an organization go from good to great? That is the question that Jim Collins set out to answer. He deployed a 21-person research team to comb through every Fortune 500 company that met their scrupulous criteria: companies that suffered a decade-long period of stagnant profits, followed by 15 years of great success and increasing profits. These companies ended up being the foundational case studies for his book, and act as teaching tools for any entrepreneur wondering how a company can ultimately surpass its competitors.

  1. How to win friends and influence people – Dale Carnegie

Tried and true, How to Win Friends and Influence People is one of the most popular business books of all time for a reason. With plenty of undertones of self-development, Dale Carnegie shows readers why handling business the right way is so imperative. He exhorts us to treat each and every opportunity with the same level of respect and dignity you would any other–and acknowledge that people want to do business with their friends. People sign deals with the people they like, and with whom they believe they’d work well. If there is one book out there that will teach you how to do just that, it’s this one.

  1. Zero to One – Peter Theil

Entrepreneurs everywhere say they want to do something different, that they want to change the world. Well, serial entrepreneur Peter Thiel has decided to tackle that topic head-on, and point out exactly what it takes to make something entirely unique and new. As he says, “The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. Tomorrow’s champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today’s marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their business will be unique.”

  1. Top of Mind – John Hall

This book is full of tactics, with insights into how consumer needs and expectations have changed over the past few years; how you can build a brand that serves both your ideal customers and your own employees; and ways to use digital content to build lasting trust with your readers, followers and subscribers.

  1. Be Obsessed or Be Average – Grant Cardone

From Cardone’s perspective, success ultimately comes down to three basic rules: first, be willing to set crazy goals, and aim to reach them, every single day; second, value your money and make it work for you; and, third, use your haters as fuel. This book is a humbling reminder of just how much you have to want success in order to eventually have it.

  1. The Power of Habit – Charles Duhigg

What does it take to build a habit? Furthermore, what impact do our everyday habits have on us, as human beings? According to Charles Duhigg, they have a far greater impact on our happiness, productivity, relationships, and everything in between than we might think. It was Duhigg’s interest in the science of habits that sparked this well-known book, and in it, he tackles questions like how and why companies use the science of habit building to influence what we buy–and when we buy it. Out of various books on habit, this one will truly change the way you do what you do!

Entrepreneurship is a commitment—not only to your venture or business, but also to a unique learning process. And these books will definitely go a long long way in contributing to your success!

On June 29, 2007, the official release date for the first iPhone in the US, Apple Inc. was trading at about $17.50 per share. As of Wednesday, Apple shares were trading near $171. Rough calculations show that an investment of $500 made in Apple stock 12 years ago would be worth about $5,000.

Trash Bin


Once upon a time there was a lonely trash bin. His name was John.
John was very lonely because he always stays alone at home with no one to speak to.
But one faithful day, the landlord of the building where John stayed at decided that today was the day to add two new trash cans next to John.
The green trash bin was named Susan. She was a recycle bin for all the papers to be reused. She was a hero to all the trees to the world!
And the blue trash bin’s name was Paul. Paul was used to store glass bottles! He was very important to the environment.
When John had first met Susan and Paul he was the HAPPIEST trash bin in the world! He had never experienced this feeling in his whole life. He stayed up all day and night talking to Susan and Paul, trying to get to know them better. I mean, it’s the only thing John could do!
John, Susan, and Paul quickly became the best of friends. They were always together. Rain and shine, hail and sleet, always.

But one warm afternoon, something terrible happened. John had discovered a tiny crack on the rim of his trash bin. Susan and Paul freaked out! But John had told them that everything would be alright. That he wasn’t going to go anywhere.
Little did he know…

August 27th, 1968. 3:26AM

John woke up with a jolt of pain on his right side. He turned to that side to see what was wrong. What he found was beyond terrifying. He found a split on his can. It went from the very top of his trash can to the very bottom of his trash can. It had hurt so bad. The contents, all his trash, had begun to spill out.
He quickly woke Susan and Paul. He showed them what was wrong and it wasn’t long before all three had begun sobbing.
The pain John was experiencing was so intense he could barely breathe. He knew he was dying.

John uttered his last words to Susan and Paul, smiled, and closed his eyes….
Paul, who never cried, shed his tears. One by one they trickled down his face and down his chin. He let out a sob and another. He replayed John’s last words over and over again in his mind.

“Thank you for being my friend.”

John passed away at age 36 on August 27th, 1968 at 3:48AM

How do snakes hear if they dont have ears?


When people and most animals hear, sound waves strike the eardrum and go to the inner ear, which is sensitive to the sound waves or vibrations. Snakes do not have eardrums, but their skins, muscles, and bones carry the sound waves to the inner ears.

1 taught you to believe in yourself
2 hired you into your dream job
3 helped you overcome unexpected setbacks

Am Done watching you suffer trying to Love me.


Have you ever faked a smile
Have you ever been so sad
To a point you couldn’t even cry?
Have you ever spent a sleepless night where your mind wonders off till the morning light
Have you ever felt so lonely
even the thought of having company gives you goose bumps?
Welcome to my life!
A life of ups and too many downs
A life am too sad to write a poem about
Am sitting in the dark and its past midnight
My troubled heart knows no sleep it bleeds through the night
Tears fall from my eyes
Tonight’s tears are of letting go
Am letting you go , setting you free
you can finally be what you want to be
Would you survive without me?
I know I can’t but this has to be
Am done watching you suffer trying to love me.

Which country first adopted time zones?


On November 2, 1868, the then-British colony of New Zealand officially adopted a standard time to be observed throughout the colony, and was perhaps the first country to do so. It was based on the longitude 172°30′ East of Greenwich, that is 11 hours 30 minutes ahead of GMT.

Why are icebergs made of fresh water?


True icebergs are galcier fragments that have fallen into the sea. Glaciers are made of compacted smow, which is fresh water. Additionally, “sea ice” that forms from the freezing of sea water is also basically fresh water as well. This is because when saltwater freezes, it excludes salt from the ice crystal lattice.

A Small Change Can Make A Big Difference


“Does anyone dare despise this day of small beginnings?” Zec 4:10 TM

Imagine the temple lying in ruins, and having to be rebuilt from the ground up. That’s what things were like when Zechariah shared his vision with the people of Israel. Some thought it couldn’t be done, and others thought that their particular contribution would make no difference. So Zechariah challenged them in these words: “Does anyone dare despise this day of small beginnings? They’ll change their tune when they see Zerubbabel setting the last stone in place!” In 1963, MIT meteorologist Edward Lorenz presented the hypothesis that became known as the butterfly effect. He theorized that a minor event, like the flapping of a butterfly’s wings in Brazil, could conceivably alter wind currents sufficiently to cause a tornado in Texas. Lorenz came to the simple yet profound conclusion: “Minuscule changes in input can make macroscopic differences in output.” That simple discovery has the power to change your life. It can radically alter your spiritual, emotional, relational, or financial forecast. It can change the atmosphere of your organization or your marriage. One decision. One change. One risk. One idea. That’s all it takes. You don’t have to make one hundred changes. All that does is divide your energy by one hundred, and results in a 1 percent chance of success. You have to be 100 percent committed to one change. It will take an all-out effort. It will probably be the hardest thing you’ve ever done. But that one change has the potential to make a 100 percent difference in your life.

Sound Financial Advice (episode 2)


“The wise have wealth…but fools spend whatever they get.” Pr 21:20 NLT

It’s foolish to buy things you don’t need and can’t afford, especially when your bills are overdue and you’ve nothing set aside for the future. Your financial security is determined by what you owe, not by what you earn! Having to work for years to repay debt severely limits your options. So determine your lifestyle by your actual income, not by what you wish it was or hope it will be. And when you get a raise, don’t automatically spend more. The Bible says, “There is…treasure…in the dwelling of the wise, but a foolish man squanders it” (Pr 21:20 NKJV). One of the wisest things you can do today is to start saving for the future, and sowing at least one-tenth of your income into God’s Kingdom so that you’ll have a harvest when you need it (See 2Co 9:6). Author John Kennedy writes: “Peddling Biblically-based financial advice has become a cottage industry. It’s not that the counsel is new, or that people haven’t heard it enough. The fact remains…Christians have racked up debt with no plan for financial accountability…they’re tapped out keeping up with interest payments.” Is your philosophy in life, “Why wait and save when a credit card will let me have what I want right now?” If you’re buying things you don’t need with money you don’t have, stop it! Before you purchase anything else, ask yourself if you really need it. And even if you think you do, ask yourself if you can live without it for a while; otherwise you’ll become a slave to credit card debt. Here’s some sound financial advice: Pray for God’s guidance before you make any nonessential purchase.

Sound Financial Advice


“The godly love to give!” Pr 21:26 NLT

The level of financial blessing God will entrust to you depends on three questions: (1) Are you mature enough to handle it? (2) Are you hoping to reap but unwilling to sow? (3) Are you a hoarder or a giver? God knows we can’t all give the same amount. Jesus honored a widow for giving her last two cents, saying: “Others gave what they’ll never miss…she gave her all” (Mk 12:44 TM). On the other hand, businessman Barnabas “sold a field he owned and brought the money and put it at the apostles’ feet” (Ac 4:37 NIV). The more God blesses you with, the more He holds you accountable for. Jesus said, “Much is required from those to whom much is given” (Lk 12:48 TLB). At offering time, a pastor told his congregation to reach out and grab the wallet or purse of the person sitting in front of them. “Now,” he said, “Open it up and give as much as you’ve always wanted to give but felt you couldn’t afford!” The truth is, we’re not all called to give equally but we’re all called to sacrifice equally. That levels the playing field. Isn’t it interesting how you can go to dinner at the home of somebody who doesn’t have a lot, and leave feeling like royalty because of their hospitality? That’s because the essence of generosity is self-sacrifice. God entrusts financial blessing to people who aren’t controlled by the love of money. How can you tell when you’re controlled by the love of money? Because instead of giving when God tells you to, you withhold. Understand this: When God impresses on you to sow a seed, there’s a harvest coming your way.

Is a mushroom a vegetable?


A mushroom is neither a fruit nor a vegetable; technically mushrooms aren’t even plants. They are a special type of fungus—a notion that puts some people off. If you don’t mind the fungus part, though, mushrooms are a great addition to a healthy diet—not to mention totally delicious.

What part of the body never stops growing?


Bones, stop growing after puberty and muscle and fat cells also stop dividing. But cartilage – that’s the plastic-like stuff in ears and noses – cartilage continues to grow until the day you die. Not only does cartilage grow, but the earlobes elongate from gravity.

Why are your lips red?


Your lips’ red or pink pigment comes from underlying blood vessels — red-colored, blood-filled capillaries are close to the thin skin on your lips. The transition of the reddish-pink outline of your lips to the rest of the skin is called the vermillion border, and it’s found only in humans.

Why do cats eyes glow at night?


Cats, dogs, and many nocturnal creatures appear to have glowing eyes because the back of their eyeballs include a special reflective layer called the tapetum lucidum. This helps animals (cats in this case) see better in low light by working like a mirror on the retina to reflect the light back through the eyes,

Your body will replace the blood volume (plasma) within 48 hours. It will take four to eight weeks for your body to completely replace the red blood cells you donated. The average adult has eight to 12 pints of blood. You will not notice any physical changes related to the pint you donated.

Carousel


When The mutable grace of our world becomes my ultimate path of survival; when every atom,every molecule,every blood bids to stand firm posing change; when beliefs propel from here and there with every pump in my heart; i chose to move and stay still however ambiguous that sounds.
My thoughts are weekday fatigues,abridged arrays of perspectives carried by emotive shores and dumped around the corner of reasonable doubts. Waking up a little less purposeful than the worm,it tickles me when its passion and faith for bed,it tickles me when its cold survival for the coming night. indeed,living has been a joke drilling and thrilling man kind.
My opinions are on a war, they say they are fighting change some shooting new some bombing progress and few seemingly Liberal thinking tied by absurd conclusions, buried six inches bellow with two degrees of freedom,cognitive rationality and mare confusion
my entire existence is not utterly intricate or captivating but rather greasy and slick like the European knights galloping in circles while tossing balls from one to another on a yet unnamed rotating platform and if i am like the tossed ball? swiping mercilessly? finding comfort at any destination? i will still be laughing to it, and i will be laughing with it and at it with every breath as my alarm and every fiber of my faith as another contradictory anchor fiercely attached lest the ordinary.
Affection,lust, smooth turns and intimacy flew with a blink of an eye and superficial interactions decorated with few forced smiles swing in on a chariot . If its laughter today,pain ignites tomorrow its poetry and creativity then its crude reality where the heart sits still on a turning chair, its a heavy bridge spanned in inches weighting in pounds made of raging rocks, woven with a smile, untied with infinitely circular fear and hope. hanging ,floating,turning with a knee to feet distance from its core my head is a spinning carousel roasting on a Sunday morning sunlight blinded by the brightest of lights. that’s where a gentle mighty hand placed your glowing soul to light my way more and more and more.

The Moon Is a Kite


By Andrea Gibson;______________________________From the other end of the phone line my little sister says
“Andrea, poppy flowers are beautiful in the right light.”
I say: Laura, you’re right. And land mines look like toys to children until their limbs explode.
And their families find their bodies in ditches on the side of the road.
Our mother is crying herself to sleep again tonight.Your daughter is in my arms wondering where you are
and maybe this light is right for you
But from here I can’t see the stars
In the morning the sunbeams will look like jail bars
Please
Come back
PleaseI’ll breathe “I love you” into your bloodstream until the needles can’t compare
I’ll teether my veins into thread and stitch them through your torn seams
I’ll scream light into your bruises
Still lives beneath your track marks
You can stand on the cliff of my heart and shout nothing but ugly through me
I promise all I will echo back is Beauty, beauty.
You have always been beauty.Did I ever tell you on the day you were born I stopped believing in Jesus
and started believing in you
And sometimes its the metal in the wind chimes that reminds us how soft the breeze is
So even when you grew like a switchblade
Pupils dilating the apocalypse
More junk in your veins than blood
More rage on your lips than love
I still believed in youI know you blew this world a kiss and no one blew it back
and I wish I had a roadmap back to the time before the first time you mainlined midnight
in search of an escape
I wish I’d had your back that night
I wish I told you life is going to hold you at gunpoint
But time usually comes with a white flag
‘cause right now theres a body bag around the moonAnd every time your daughter cries the constellations look like chalk outlines of crucified angels in the sky
And I’m not sure I’m strong enough for this
I can see the veins in my wrists too clearly
can feel the knife in the drawer
We are more alike than you knowBut your daughter’s heart is beating
I can see her pulse in the soft spot in her head
and in the other room my mother is asleep and dreaming
now of the way we were when we too were just babies like her
and maybe we’ll never be that new againMaybe there will always be days when the sunbeams look like jail bars
Maybe it’ll seem we have more scars than life lines sometimes
But I’ve found its always worth trying to wake away from the land mines
and hope you come back with your skin intact
enough to drink the moonshine.Girl, I know you think this world is too dark to even dream in colour
But I’ve seen flowers bloom at midnight
I’ve seen kites flying in gray skies
and they were real close to looking like the sunrise
and sometimes it takes the most wounded wings
the most broken things to remind us how strong the breeze is
How precious the flight
so I’m still not believing in JesusI’m still believing in you.
I’m still telling your daughter the moon is a kite
attached to a string that’s held by your mother
and I promise she’s coming back soon.

Feminism (And Male Bashing)🇰🇪 Interesting Read


A lot of stupidity and totalitarian thinking has arisen with a #Metoo movement. Everyone around the world heard about Harry Weinstein story and I will not defend this man, he got what he deserved for being a pig. But I cannot take the fact that some mentally ill women are collecting signitures to ban Matt Damon from movies just because he says that people judge every case ” you know, there’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right? “. So called feminists are publicly slaughtering a man with alsmost ideal reputation just because he doesn’t blindly support their agenda. Isn’t it ironic that today they want to put up boundaries in a free speech, the one that actually led to the liberation of women’s rights.
After some time I stumbled apone a TED talk by some unknown actor(i’m not gonna advertise him) who was talking about that “guys, we are the problem” and suggesting that men should be more like women. This was last tiping point for me personally. Really, being masculine is a problem now?!
My personal answer to these omega populists, who’re trying to ride the wave of this new hype- if you don’t like being a man, go cut your balls and put on a dress. I am fine being a man, I do not see any issues being one and if someone tells me that something is wrong with it I will defend it the way man should defend his manhood.
As for the general ideas of feminism I totally support the rights of the women, but not the rights to oppress men.

Reading is not a Chore; Reading is Power


Reading is not a chore.

Reading is theft. It is a robbery.

That is power.

What percentage of our brain do we use?

The popularly and widely spread belief that we only use or have access to 10 percent of our brain’s power is often used to speculate about the extent of human abilities if only we could utilize our brain’s full capacity. In reality, this claim is 100 percent myth. We use all of our brain.

How to escape conformism.


⬛️ Folks, I’d also like to learn how to escape conformism. Do I know all of the answers ? No.
However we all must intuitevly realize that answers lie in our brains.
That means we should look deeper into ourselfs, but how do you do it? Well it’s very problematic, because we are conscious, but consciousness is the product of our brain. It’s like milk trying to study a cow, majority of work being done by our brain is invisiable to our conscience.
Therefore I believe that first step in recognising our limitations.
Second step is building mental “tools” in our brains for more critical thinking, I do not understan our brain better and to think more critically about the world.

Recognising limitations is not a building block – it’s a breaking block. No matter how smart you think you are, no matter how sophisticated are your mental “tools”, you can still be wrong about the reality. Recongnition of limitation can give you flexibility to change/adabt your tools whenever needed.
