So this is what a BokoHaram terrorist looks like. OMG! Seeing ds pic of a captured BH terrorist tweeted by @HQNigerianArmy, my feeling is a mixed one. Happy abt d victory but sad when I realized it may just be temporary perhaps we're just a few moments away frm next attacks...
...as ds menace may continue 4 a long time cos d root isn't tackled. I'm nt wt bad intent, I'm only pointing out d obvious thru past xperience.
Ds pic portrays a youthful energetic pauper who has no means of surviving bt later ended up in d hands of Devils & became...@renoomokri
..a tool of destruction to his own people & d community wt his laggardness & pyscho-infirmity occasioned by destitution, making him very susceptible to be brainwashed into believing killing innocent souls will earn him whatever pleasure he desires. @segalink @ogundamisi @Omojuwa

When the #NSA discovered that #Iran may have been buying computer chips from the #UnitedStates routing them through a U.S. ally
&
Potentially supplying them to detonate #bombs against U.S. forces in Iraq & #Afghanistan
It credited so-called economic intelligence with the find.
The solution wasn't a death blow delivered by the #military but rather a new regulation on the export of certain #technologies via the #CommerceDepartment which the #NSA said would end up “saving #American & coalition lives.”

From Crazy Rich Asians to Cherry, our #FridayReads:
.@jafreenmu is re-reading Tahmina Anam (@tahmima)’s novel The Bones of Grace, “a story that draws you in so deeply into the world of its characters, I'm as captivated the second time around as I was when first reading it!”
.@MLRStrategy is reading Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan, “a light beach read that’s been perfect for summer; a love story spanning socioeconomic and class divides that plays out amongst the uber-wealth of Singaporean high society. Will see the movie next!”

September is a big month! I’m at the airport on my way Florida for The #Exvangelical Community: Paths, Projects, Prospects. In the last two days I’ve filed two pieces with editors, and this week I did podcasts w/ @NiceMangos and @kitchencultpod (@haettinger and @mxdarkwater). #FF
Next weekend I’ll be in Charleston, South Carolina to give a talk for @CHShumanists, and am very much looking forward to that! October is also pretty full!

1. Not gonna lie; I'm surprised that World Magazine, an evangelical publication, would release such a withering expose of Liberty University's authoritarian crackdown on the college newspaper. But this is a must read:

2. Heavy-handed control over college newspapers--essentially rendering them propaganda outlets--is one common tactic used when evangelical colleges crack down to impose orthodoxy, a frequent pattern. Here's an investigative piece I did on these crackdowns

3. I interviewed David Wheeler (@WheelerWorkshop), who was faculty adviser for the student paper at Asbury University, and one of his former students for the article linked above. Asbury refused to print the student's article making a Christian case for legal same-sex marriage.
