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.
It was this base Model 3 with a standard battery pack that was supposed to be Tesla’s “secret weapon” on the car market, the affordable luxury electric vehicle that would solidify and boost Tesla’s dominance in its niche market and spread it over into the mainstream car market. 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.

“Our expansion across the U.S. has been crucial to finding great new talent, improving the services that people use every day, and investing in our business,” Pichai wrote in the post. He said this will be the second year in a row that Google will grow “faster outside of the Bay Area than in it.”

If you bought Apple stock instead of the original iPhone, which would be the better investment?


The first smartphone, designed and marketed by Apple, hit the shelves in June 2007.
RT decided to calculate how much a $500 investment would be worth today if the money had been invested in Apple stock instead of buying the original iPhone.
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

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.

History of Nobel Peace Prize


Alfred Nobel died on December 10, 1896. His will, written one
year earlier, directed that the vast majority of his fortune—
estimated at $9 million—was to be used for the establishment
and award of annual prizes in five categories: literature, medicine
or physiology, chemistry, physics, and for the “person who had
made the greatest contribution to the cause of promoting friend-
ship among nations, disarmament or limitation of armaments, as
well as to the establishment and popularization of the Congresses
of Peace.”*
Ever since, people have marveled at the incongruity between
the man, his career, and the award that was named for him. Alfred
Nobel was a Swede who spent many years living in other nations;
he spent a lot of time in Paris; and he died in Italy. He made his
fortune in his thirties by perfecting the manufacture of explosives,
which he patented in 1867. This was the beginning of dynamite.
How strange that such a man would leave most of his vast fortune
to the establishment of international prizes, and that one of them
would be the Peace Prize.
The first peace prizes were awarded in 1901. Nobel had estab-
lished the selection process, by which a committee of five persons
chosen by the Norwegian Parliament made the choices. They began
a custom of announcing the prizes in October and giving the actual
awards on December 10 of each year, the day of Nobel’s death.
More than 100 persons and organizations total have been
awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Nobel’s will provided that the
award could be given to as many as three persons in one year;
there have been numerous occasions on which it was given to two
persons, and one occasion when it went to three. Examination of
the recipient list indicates that the Nobel Prize committees have
indeed fulfilled Nobel’s intention that the prize should not be limited
to one nationalist or ethnic group. But further perusal also shows
that there have not been many women selected for the honor.
Baroness Bertha von Suttner was the first to win, in 1905, but as
of 2005, only 10 other female peacemakers have been recognized
with the award.
Americans have fared well in the Nobel Peace Prize selec-
tion process. President Theodore Roosevelt won the award
for mediating the peace conference that ended the Russo-
Japanese War; President Woodrow Wilson won it for his work
at the peace conference that ended World War I. But there have
been some controversial selections, including that of Dr. Henry
Kissinger, who, as secretary of state, worked toward ending the
U.S. presence in South Vietnam. Kissinger’s critics claimed it was
a farce for this man, who had been behind so much of U.S. policy
that led to the Vietnam War, to receive the Peace Prize.
Two of the biggest events surrounding the Nobel Peace Prize
had to do with Middle Eastern diplomacy. In 1979, Israeli Prime
Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat
shared the prize for their work on the Camp David Accords that
led to peace between their two nations. In 1993, Yitzhak Rabin
and Shimon Peres, both of Israel, shared the Nobel Peace Prize
with Yasir Arafat; the three men had worked long and hard on
the Oslo Accords, which promised peace between Israel and the
Palestinian Authority. Sadly, this set of accords did not deliver on
its promise.
Alfred Nobel started the process in 1896, and it has been
continued by presidents, prime ministers, social workers, medical
doctors, and others. Would Nobel have been satisfied? This is dif-
ficult to say, but, as some critics even acknowledge, it is better to
light one candle than to curse the darkness.

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.

What organ produces adrenaline?


Epinephrine and norepinephrine are two separate but related hormones secreted by the medulla of the adrenal glands. They are also produced at the ends of sympathetic nerve fibres, where they serve as chemical mediators for conveying the nerve impulses to effector organs.

Why is it called the Continental Divide?


The Continental Divide, also called the Great Divide, is a natural boundary line separating waters that flow into the Atlantic Ocean or Gulf of Mexico from those that flow into the Pacific Ocean. It runs north-south from Alaska to northwestern South America.

Who is Happy? The Peacock and The Crow


A crow lived in the forest and was absolutely satisfied in life. But one day he saw a swan. “This swan is so white,” he thought, “and I am so black. This swan must be the happiest bird in the world.”

He expressed his thoughts to the swan. “Actually,” the swan replied, “I was feeling that I was the happiest bird around until I saw a parrot, which has two colors. I now think the parrot is the happiest bird in creation.” The crow then approached the parrot. The parrot explained, “I lived a very happy life until I saw a peacock. I have only two colors, but the peacock has multiple colors.”

The crow then visited a peacock in the zoo and saw that hundreds of people had gathered to see him. After the people had left, the crow approached the peacock. “Dear peacock,” the crow said, “you are so beautiful. Every day thousands of people come to see you. When people see me, they immediately shoo me away. I think you are the happiest bird on the planet.”
