I think it’s time for the truth to come out... dirty secrets are not my burden to carry.
I’ll start by saying up until a few years ago, I was fully indoctrinated into toxic police culture. I fully bought into it. If I heard anything like my story I wouldn’t believe it. I’d hold popular opinion that she’s crazy/incompetent/vindictive/lying/slutty and a bitch.

I know 2 Sudans, the story of transitioning from one identity to another and the long awaited change to the conversations of who qualifies as a government representative for the discussion that begins next week on #FacesofJunub could you list some panelists to zoom in?
In this discussion we begin to debunk the use of language to define culture and ethnicity in the modern setting of #AfricaDialogues what significance does artistic expression have in shaping a revolutionary struggle?
Its certainly a renaissance of artistic expression when speaking of the cross cutting effect of Madilu system's lingala music on the radio, followed by Diamonds Tetema and singing it in unison, but have you heard an old song that sticks with you? I think of Lucky Dube's reggae

Heute ist ein ganz besonderer Tag. Vor genau 100 Tagen hatte ich die ersten Symptome: Einen trockenen hohlen Husten, brennende Augen und erhöhte Temperatur. Das war noch ok. /1
Dann begann eine schier unglaubliche Fatigue und es folgten: Lungenentzündung, kompletter Geruchs- und Geschmacksverlust, Ausschlag, Atemaussetzer, Taubheitsgefühle, pieksen, unbändiger Durst, Kopfschmerzen, Gelenkschmerzen, schwere kognitive Probleme, u.v.m. /2
Wie sieht es in Woche 15 aus?
- Ich habe eine bronchiale Hyperreagibilität.
- Ich bin wegen der kognitiven Probleme wieder arbeitsunfähig und niemand kann mir sagen, wie lange das dauern wird.
- Ich habe wieder einen kompletten Geschmacksverlust.

2013: 7 years ago we were freed by Spanish homeland security after spending 2 months in jail for illegally entering Europe by sea. This, after attempting for one year from Morocco. I had nothing by then but a dream and a faith of pursuing it.
Some people will always (1/3)
tell you that it's too late, that you can’t make it, that it's not meant for you, that you're not worth it, or that you can't succeed without them (while their lives aren't an exemple of success). Those voices are always around the corner to make you quit your dream (2/3)
and maybe your destiny. It’s up to you and only you if you let them get to your mind, but you can also reject or ignore the negativities around you and make it in your own way. (3/3) #throwbackthursday

On our #ThrowbackThursday, we're looking at the Adamma mask.

Adamma is a contemporary maiden spirit mask that originates from Enugu and can be found now in Anambra.

The mask is performed by men only and is accompanied by music that the masker dances to. Unlike other Igbo masks,
Adamma mask does not have any spiritual value behind it.

The ceremonial masquerade is named after Adamma, a name loosely translated to ‘beautiful woman’ and reserved for the first daughter of a family. She is always gorgeously dressed in colourful attires and dances so...
beautifully that most times, people wonder whether it’s actually a man under the mask and has been described as a performance of femininity in a glamourised and controlled manner.

Generally in Igbo culture, "nwanyi anaghi eti mmonwu" masquerades have never been reserved for the

Today on #ThrowbackThursday, we're giving a brief insight to the defunct Bakassi Boys group of the South East.

The group of the Bakassi Boys was created in 1998 by traders in the commercial city of Aba!!

A thread!!

The aim of the group was to protect themselves from armed robbers, hoodlums, ritualists, kidnappers, and even the practice of dark magic itself as was observed in the case of Eddy Nawgu, an alleged false prophet and occultist whom they killed and beheaded.
As a "vigilante group" they successfully reduced crime in Aba. Their services were now in high demand and their activities spread to other Eastern Nigeria cities of Owerri and Onitsha with the same Modus operandi.

Founding members (who joined voluntarily) were primarily young..

It's #ThrowbackThursday at The NDN Silver Blog, with a work commissioned by one of our dearest friends for another, a piece intended not precisely to replace something lost, but rather to accompany the wearer in a journey of renewal:…. Image
This was a commissioned piece from something a little under two years ago. One of my dearest friends asked me to have Wings create this for a different friend, one who had previously worn one of Wings's coils.
I say "previously," because it was lost, along with virtually all of her material possessions, and her home, in the NorCal wildfires in late 2018.

The previous one embodied love, and dreams. Going forward, she would need plenty of both. Image

“China believes that its rightful place is at the center of the world and views the last 100 years as an aberration it intends to correct.” - @marcorubio #ThrowbackThursday…
They have no interest in adhering to the rules of a post-war international system, instead seeking to upend or replace it. They pursued these plans while “hiding their strength & biding their time,” portraying themselves as a poor developing country and a non-expansionist power.
And they succeeded in luring American policymakers into making negligent and catastrophic mistakes. Washington passed financial, trade, tax, and patent laws designed to smooth over the process for companies to open up operations in China.

#TBT #ThrowbackThursday

Last Thursday, I got a fish bone stuck in my throat. A day later, I had developed a headache, my ear hurt and my throat was sore; I was very uncomfortable. By Saturday, it became unbearable so I decided to go see an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) specialist.
When I arrived at the hospital, I told the lady at the front desk it was an emergency. I let her know what the problem was and she immediately arranged for me to see the doctor as soon as he became available.

I decided to use the wait time to respond to some emails.
Some minutes in, a nurse came to call me, I asked her to please bear with me for a minute or two as I was almost done with my response to an email.

I hadn’t typed two more words when I heard the doctor’s loud voice, “how can she say she has an emergency but she’s on the phone...
