It’s a lot easier to live disappointed, than it is to feel disappointment. When we live a life where we make feeling disappointment as a norm, we eventually tend to trigger a long term downfall of what makes us whole and healthy. Being healthy includes but not limited to a healthy body (medication, seeing doctors regularly, vitamins, etc), but also includes a healthy environment, financial life, mental life, sex life, pleasure, fun, easiest methods of managing stress and all those other aspects which cause/take a toll on our physical.
Our lived experiences are very much different. Coming from several backgrounds, cultures and ethnic societies which most often define what is right or wrong, what we can and can’t do, it makes it quite difficult when we need to live up to those standards set by those norms, even when our bodies continuously whisper to us to stop, change or do whatever makes us happy, simply because we don’t want to disappoint or feel disappointment.
But hey, there is so much more to a healthy life than what society has preached so far. Make listening to your inner self a priority. There’s no prescription out there than can heal our Inner self. If we keep stressing our bodies, our bodies will eventually lash out. Even if it means quitting years of education, work and growth and taking a fresh start, do it. We need our bodies as much as our bodies need us.
I challenge you to make your own prescriptions whenever your inner self whispers silently to you.

One of the most interesting words in the English language today, is the word “fuck”. It is a magical word. Just by its sound it can describe pain, pleasure, hate and love. In language it falls into many grammatical categories. It can be used as a Verb, both Transitive: “John fucked Mary”, and Intransitive: “Mary was fucked by John.”
And as a Noun: “Mary is a fine fuck”. It can be used as an Adjective: “Mary is fucking beautiful”. As you can see, there are not many words with the versatility of fuck. Besides the sexual meaning, there are also the following uses:
- Ignorance: Fucked if I know.
- Trouble: I guess I am fucked now!
- Fraud: I got fucked at the used car lot.
- Aggression: Fuck you!
- Displeasure: What the fuck are you doing?
- Enjoyment: I had a fucking good time!
- Request: Get the fuck out of here!
- Hostility: I’m going to knock your fucking head off!
- Greeting: How the fuck are you?
- Apathy: Who gives a fuck?
- Innovation: Get a bigger fucking hammer!
- Surprise: Fuck! You scared the shit out of me!
- Anxiety: Today is really fucked!
And it is very healthy too! If every morning you do it as a transcendental meditation just when you get up first thing, repeat the mantra: “Fuck you”: five times, it clears your throat too!

Ten major volcanoes have erupted along the Ring of Fire during the past few months, and the mainstream media in the United States has been strangely silent about this. But this is a very big deal. We are seeing eruptions at some volcanoes that have been dormant for decades. Yes, it is certainly not unusual for two or three major volcanoes along the Ring of Fire to be active at the same time, but what we are witnessing right now is highly unusual. And if the U.S. media is not concerned about this yet, the truth is that they should be. Approximately 90 percent of all earthquakes and approximately 80 percent of all volcanic eruptions occur along the Ring of Fire, and it runs directly up the west coast of the United States. Perhaps if Mt. Rainier in Washington state suddenly exploded or a massive earthquake flattened Los Angeles the mainstream media would wake up. Most Americans have grown very complacent about these things, but right now we are witnessing volcanic activity almost everywhere else along the Ring of Fire. It is only a matter of time before it happens here too.
Sadly, most Americans cannot even tell you what the Ring of Fire is. The following is howWikipedia defines the “Ring of Fire”…
The Ring of Fire is an area where a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean. In a 40,000 km (25,000 mi) horseshoe shape, it is associated with a nearly continuous series of oceanic trenches, volcanic arcs, and volcanic belts and/or plate movements. It has 452 volcanoes and is home to over 75% of the world’s active and dormant volcanoes.
An easy way to think about the Ring of Fire is to imagine a giant red band stretching along the perimeter of the Pacific Ocean.
And yes, that includes the entire west coast of the United States and the entire southern coast of Alaska.
10 major volcanoes along the Ring of Fire have suddenly roared to life in recent months. The following are short excerpts from news reports about those eruptions…
Volcano creates new island off the coast of Japan: A dramatic volcanic eruption in the Pacific Ocean has created a tiny new islet in Japan’s territorial waters, officials said Thursday, the first time in decades the nation has seen the phenomenon.
The navy spotted smoke about 1,000 kilometres (600 miles) south of Tokyo on Wednesday and Japan’s coastguard later verified the birth of the islet around the Ogasawara island chain.
Video footage showed plumes of smoke and ash billowing from the 200-metre island, and Japan’s coastguard said it was warning vessels to use caution in the area until the eruption cools off.
Mount Sinabung in Indonesia: A volcano in western Indonesia has erupted eight times in just a few hours, “raining down rocks” over a large area and forcing thousands to flee their homes, officials said Sunday.
Mount Sinabung has been erupting on and off since September, but went into overdrive late Saturday and early Sunday, repeatedly spewing out red-hot ash and rocks up to eight kilometres (five miles) into the air.
Colima in Mexico: On Monday night and Tuesday morning, the Colima volcano showed two strong exhalations; ejecting lava down its slopes and ash skyward, that has reached several villages. Since last Sunday, the Volcan de Fuego de Colima was reactivated after several weeks of apparent calm and until Tuesday registered between 30 and 35 puffs per day, spewing lava down its slopes and ash that reached the people of Cheese, municipality of Cuauhtémoc, Colima, and some towns in the state of Jalisco.
Sakurajima in Japan: After a short phase of weaker activity, the volcano began to erupt more violently yesterday with a series of powerful explosions that sent ash plumes up to 15,000 ft (4,5 km). Near-constant ash emissions have been taking place from the Showa crater.
Fuego in Guatemala: Two lava flows are active on the upper slopes of the volcano at the moment, to the Taniluya (south) and Ceniza canyon (SE). The effusive activity started on 11 Nov and increased on 18 November, reaching a length of 600 m. Constant avalanches detach from the flow fronts. At the same time, explosive activity at the summit crater remained at low to moderate levels, with strombolian explosions that produce ash plumes of up to 800 m height and incandescent jets visible from distance.
Santa María/Santiaguito in Guatemala: A phreatomagmatic (water-magma interaction driven) explosion yesterday morning produced a plume of fine ash rising to 3.2 km altitude (700 m above the lava dome) and drifted SE, causing ash fall in Finca La Florida.
Yaser in Vanuatu: Geohazards reports that the volcano continues to produce near-continuous ash emissions while explosions are relatively weak. This phase of ash emissions began on 3 November and are likely to continue into the coming days and weeks.
Popocatepetl in Mexico: The Popocatepetl volcano showcased with a layer of snow was observed throughout the morning and mid-day from the city of Puebla and columns generated by medium-intensity exhalations. According to the monitoring system of the National Center for Disaster Prevention (Cenapred) in the last 24 hours, the colossus presented 57 exhalations of low intensity, probably accompanied by emissions of steam and gas.
Mount Marapi in Indonesia: Mount Merapi, the most active volcano in Indonesia, erupted earlier Monday, shooting a cloud of black ash about 2,000 meter high, officials said.
Kliuchevskoi on the Kamchatka Peninsula: Kliuchevskoi on the Kamchatka Peninsula in Russia had a busy weekend after its busy week — and a lot of the action was caught on the webcams pointed at the volcano or by satellite. For much of Friday and into Saturday (October 18-19), the volcano continued to produce some vigorous lava fountains and lava flows, mixed in with Strombolian explosions that sent bombs down the slopes of the volcano. This activity was significant enough to cause some aviation alerts even over the western Aleutian Islands.
So why is this happening?
Why is the Ring of Fire suddenly roaring to life?
And what could this mean for the United States?

On Saturday the 9th of November 2013, there was a situation at Buea; Eta Palace to be specific about a girl being devoured by a Man who turned himself to a python after promising to give this girl a certain sum of 500,000frs (as per the story) for an affair they both had at this hotel. First of all, lets accept that witchcraft exist and people have totems.
However and as a disclaimer, the said story has been discredited with statements of it being a “plot” to tarnish the image of this hotel. Also several pictures of a snake swallowing a woman went viral. These pictures are false pictures and I personally can prove that.
Media outlets, the radio and TV stations are not saying anything concrete about it. Some state that it’s a rumour, others state that there are no pictures or videos to prove the claim. As I proceed, I’ll paint the situation and provide counter questions to justify and corroborate the fact that the government is hiding something, and something happened.
Per the story, – “this man and girl are in the same room, she steps into the bathroom to ease herself and on returning to the room, she sees a snake instead of the man she was with and is killed by being swallowed”. Some people say there were no 3rd parties in the room to justify what happened.
- As human beings, our primary instinct when we find ourselves in danger is to seek for help. The most common form of doing that is by SCREAMING which usually comes as an uncontrolled response when faced with a situation. By screaming, our surrounding is alerted which will definitely draw attention.
- A woman will scream, at the very sight of a snake in an uncontrolled environment or in her bedroom. Even a man will act quickly and call for assistance to have the snake killed immediately. But at least some awareness will be raised.
- Per the story, – “she reached for her phone, called up her friends and beckoned with them to come rescue her, before being grabbed by the snake and the tale continues”.
From the above highlights, 3rd parties could definitely have been reached out in 2 ways. It’s either the call she made is true, or assuming that she didn’t make a call, she definitely would have screamed for help as a natural first reaction and given that it was in a hotel, more than one 3rd party would have heard and rushed to the scene to attend to the distress call for help.
There is a huge question which plagues the lips on many. Where are pictures or videos to prove that the situation is true? I’ll in turn ask, How will pictures or videos exist if the heavy police barricade did not let the press get in to cover the story, talk less of the angry mob who got into a confrontation with the police which ended with the exchange of stones and tear gas to gun shots??. The police did all they could to prevent the angry mob from getting in. Of course, damage was done and wounds incurred.
Quick question: Why will the police get to that extent of preventing a “mob” from getting in to see for themselves?
Well that’s an obvious question which will get an obvious answer. Let me get a lot more specific.
Why were press and reporters on scene denied access into the hotel? (That’s an open question and will expect an answer, if any objective one exists).
The press has rights to report situations, it’s their job. Being denied entry will only mean, there’s something on the inside which they don’t want to be released. That said, suspicion grew up stating that the man involved could be a top official. Let’s put you in that position. You have power, and you can exercise your power on a great scale, and will even use it to defend yourself. Knowing how corrupt our government is, will you not use that same power to protect your identity if need be?
As a result of the story, it was said that a lot of evidence was destroyed. What evidence? I’ll want to think any device, be it a phone or camera which could record the situation from within. The hotel’s records were apprehended. Why? Of course, not to reveal the identity of the person.
Why will the police and government get to that extent to cover up such a thing if it does not exist?
A Pastor was granted access to get in. Yet, the police barricade was the furthest he could get across. He was denied further access on the inside. Why bring in a pastor if, it has nothing to do with spirituality or metaphysical issues? Or was the pastor going into the pray for the dead girl?
That notwithstanding, there is something greater than what we anticipate. Radio stations and TV new reports this said day Monday 11th do not say anything with regards to revealing the insights, but say that it’s just a rumour to discredit the hotel. Awilo on IPP said that “he’s under hot conditioner, not air conditioner”. He is known for daring to report certain things which the national radio station CRTV will not. But if he said – he is under a hot condition, then it should ring a bell.
I will not conclude giving the impression that the story is True or Not True because nothing concrete has been released. There are several versions of this story. This article is based on the several questions being asked and actions taken to which I am providing counter questions and not based on the assumed stories circulating. If they say it is just a plot the discredit the hotel, that same day, the hotel management would have made a statement to support the rumour and state what happened, they would have granted the press and a few others from the mob access into the hotel and not let the government and police run things. About 15 arrests were made that day.
A stigma has already been created, and the longer they keep their silence, the deeper it gets. I’ll end with one of my favourite African proverbs.
“WHEN THE WIND BLOWS, THE FOWLS ANUS WILL SHOW”

UPDATE: BBM roll out continues today. Get the details here: http://blogs.blackberry.com/2013/10/bbm-android-iphone-launch/ — Donny H., October 21, 2013
Prior to launching BBM for Android, an unreleased version of the BBM for Android app was posted online. The interest and enthusiasm we have seen already – more than 1.1 million active users in the first 8 hours without even launching the official Android app – is incredible. Consequently, this unreleased version caused issues, which we have attempted to address throughout the day.
Our teams continue to work around the clock to bring BBM to Android and iPhone, but only when it’s ready and we know it will live up to your expectations of BBM. We are pausing the global roll-out of BBM for Android and iPhone. Customers who have already downloaded BBM for iPhone will be able to continue to use BBM. The unreleased Android app will be disabled, and customers who…
