A List of Reasons to be Grateful.

By Losioki Somoire

Reasons to be grateful

There are a hundred reasons we need to be grateful

You saw me graduate high school – standing on that stage
more stone than human, ancient
invincible and undying.

You saw my passion and need for education,
And cherished my dreams to one day change this world,
there is much I gained since setting my foot forth here
Thank you for teaching me immortality is a feeling,
not a state of being.

That at times I forgot my role and only thought myself useless and incapable
But you saw and new exactly what I so wanted
Thank you for teaching me that I should always initiate change around me,
And not to wait for X to do
Thank you for teaching me that through books, myfreedom and prosperity is assured.
Again, through the same books, you coined morality in me,
that good is bigger than bad.

Then my first semester of college when I realized
the best learning doesn’t happen at desks, wooden and square –
but on the floor, dirty dorm room carpet,
sitting cross-legged with your friends
debating the existence of God.

Thank you for teaching me to listen more than I speak
and to give more love than I take.
And to praise more than I complain,
That before I doubt I should believe,
And thank you for teaching me that my seniors are a worth source of knowledge
Thank you for making me to understand what humility is; that to the old I should not rebuke, to the little ones I treat like sisters and brothers.

In your waters I lost a friendship –
watched it succumb like a sandcastle
to the foaming mouth of a rabid sea.
Thank you for teaching me some things
flourish at a distance but dissolve
at the first touch of closeness.

It was then I realized that, some things are good from far, but far from good.
Through your eyes I saw a larger world; you always watched my steps to see that I reach that mark.
So thank you Moi University and the stolen identity when I joined first year,
and my first time on the grounds of a higher institution, thank you for the new friends and lecturers who were kind and speak so fast others so rude.

Thank you for fresh pain and books
and people and a load of assignments
And thank you for the library that expanded my frontier of what I know now, bigger than what I knew before
and the chance to be called a student of this institution
and for the new opportunities to build my career, meet new people.
Thanks for all of it, even the bad parts.
Thank you for every new feeling.
Thank you.

Martin Luther King Junior

Martin Luther King Junior won The 1964 Nobel Peace Prize for his role in fighting for black rights using non-combatant method.

Dr. Martin Luther King Junior

Malcolm X

Malcolm was one of the black American human right activist, known for his no-nonsense stand in the fight for the liberation of black people from racist attacks. He was majorly Muslim and he believed in extreme methods of dealing with the racism in America at that time.

He is famed for speeches like ‘Who taught you to hate the skin God Gave you?’, ‘The house neegro vs the field neegro’, ‘When one exercises intelligently directly extremism for the sake of liberty for human beings, it’s no vice’.

Albert Einstein

Now, this is the father of all inventions and intelligent quotes. Besides the Law of Relativityand E=MC2 radioactivity equations, Einstein gave several quotes and made several discoveries. During his time, the German was considered themost intelligent person in the world. After the WW2, he was offered to be the President of Israel, but declined. How did you even become a university student if you don’t know Einstein?!

 

Socrates, Plato, Aristotle

If you don’t know them, it’s only understandable if you are a green first year and haven’t seen the door to a lecture hall yet! These three Greek Philosophers are the reason art guys go to school or so I suppose. You will never do an art course at the university today without mentioning these names. They were so wise that their only equal would be probably Solomon. Catch up with a book like The Republic by Plato and you will marvel at just how, hundreds of years before Christ (about 400BC), people would reason out things like this! These are the real guys in the  List of 8 People Every University Student Must Know!

What You Must Know Before Placing Bets for Barcelona

If you don’t consider reading this, you might end up hanging yourself after losing cash to betting or predicting in Barcelona matches! Here are tips you must uphold when predicting Barcelona matches, or before you every engage yourself in placing a bet on Barcelona. Millions of people across the world love to predict for this team, because it looks a perfect bet, a team that never loses. Whenever you place your bet on Barcelona, you are almost sure to win, whether in SportPesa, BetIn, BetWay, Bet365 or others. But that could really cost you if you do not know Barcelona’s history and trends in winning. Here are the tips that will help you safeguard your money by placing the right Barcelona bets!

 

How To Bet for Barcelona

1 Bets for Barcelona: If Barcelona plays against an EPL team, go for Barça!

 

Barcelona is in its own league when playing with foreign teams, especially compared to those from England. EPL only masquerades as pompous ‘guys’, but there hasn’t emerged any formidable team that could fight against the Catalans! Their game and formation looks just too pretty and overwhelming for the two Manchester teams, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, or even Liverpool. But Manchester United under Ferguson had beaten Barcelona in 2008. Since 2009, when Michael Essien of Chelsea beat the Spanish team 1-0 in a stunningly impossible goal, all the successor games have been a chance for Barça to humiliate fans and teams. In the hands of Barcelona, Manchester United, Arsenal and Manchester City have been on the receiving end ever since. It goes unmentioned, that in 2001, Barca beat Liverpool 3-1 where in one of the goals, Liverpool did not touch the ball for over 20 minutes! Thus, confidently, place your bet for the Catalans, every time they play against English teams.

 

2 If Barcelona plays against a German team, bet this way

 

Germany has some of the best teams in the world. Though Bundesliga is not widely televised like the Spanish and English leagues, the German side produces some of the world’s most proficient giants. Mostly drawn from Netherlands and Germany, the players in Bundesliga are far above the pass mark! They know the game is defined by goals and thus, they never hesitate to impress. Actually, soccer was invented in Germany! But when they play against Barcelona, you need to study the records the right way. Barcelona wins at home– Camp Nou- but finds it hard on German soil. Mostly, it is very hard for visiting teams to win in Germany. So, make sure you place a Barcelona’s home win. But in the case of Bayern Munchen and Borrussia Dortmund, a wise better will assume no game is on the screens. He will neither bet for Barcelona or any of the two German sides! Never forget that in 2013, while Barcelona was in its good mood, the Bayern scored 3 in Camp Nou and 4 at the Allianz Arena, summing up to an aggregate of 7-0!

 

3 Bets for Barcelona: If they are playing against a La Liga team, here are the best predictions

Barcelona is a King- emperor- in Spain. Most thrillingly, the team keeps thrashing the rest with hat-tricks and other packets full of demolishing goals. Therefore, be confident when placing your odd predictions for Barca in La Liga matches. The only issues you may need to reason out are their current forms especially when playing against Real Madrid or Valencia. But also, you must be extremely careful while dealing with Athletico Madrid in serious, cup-oriented knock outs. In most of the matches that Athletico and Barcelona have met in knock outs and EUFA- Athletico has most certainly won.

 

So, be wise enough. Place your odds the right way. And don’t forget that though luck plays part in sports betting, you need to be a vigilant analyzer. Never forget people lose bets due to their ignorance!

With Kenyan Roots, Doing Great Abroad

Most Successful Kenyans Abroad: With Kenyan Roots, Doing Great Abroad

Chris Rock once stated that Kenyans are not the kind of guys to lose races. Of course, he was campaigning for Kenyan-rooted Barrack Obama, 44thPresident of the US- one of the Most Successful Kenyans Abroad. But as you will find out here, Obama is not the only successful Kenyan living in the United States or elsewhere in the world. You will marvel at the way Kenyans are slowly but surely taking over the social, political, sports and even the economic scenes. Even at the International Criminal Court (ICC), Kenyans must be respected as the guys who took themselves there, and then out, voting a suspect for president, and then vilifying the credibility of the court to the whole world!

Here are brief profiles of guys you didn’t know were actually from Kenya!

 

Edi Gathegi

Eddie Gathegi is a Hollywood Star

Another of the Most Successful Kenyans Abroad! Edi is one of the guys you have met in several movies across Hollywood. But did you know he was born in Kenya? Well, ‘Gathegi’ is a name originating from Central Kenya. Born in March 1979 in Nairobi, to Dr. John N Gathegi, a Professor of Information Law and Policy University of South Florida.

http://www.254campusnews.com/category/campus-relationships/

He lived in Nairobi before relocating to the United States where he studied acting at the New York University.  Gathegi is renowned for his roles in The Black List series, where he takes a role of Solomon Martial, an agent to the ‘Cabal’ fraternity. You must have seen him harassing Herald Cooper, Tom, Dembe and other associates of Raymond Reddington. Others films in which he features include The X- Men First Class, Twilight, Story Telling, Namaste Bitches, Proof and many more! Edi has lots of accolades including a nomination for “Teen Choice Award for Choice Movie: Chemistry” Throughout Hollywood, Edi Mue Gathegi is a name to reckon with, but in Kenya, he is a celebrated son!

 

Divock Origi

 

Origi is a Belgium and Liverpool Star

This is one of the Most Successful Kenyans Abroad! You certainly don’t follow soccer if you have not come across this Belgium star! Divock Origi is famed for his roles in making his Belgium do well in the 2014 World Cup Finals in Brazil.

Origi, currently a professional footballer at English side Liverpool, has become a voice to reckon with all through Europe for helping his teams win. The born ‘95 kid traces his roots from Nyanza, a region in Western Kenya.

 

Victor Mugabe Wanyama

 

Wanyama

Southampton! The English premier league is slowly but eventually turning into a Kenyan affair. With guys like Wanyama on the defense, not even Cristiano Ronaldo’s or Messi’s antics can penetrate!

 

Wanyama is highly respected in Kenya for his roles in the national team, Harambee Stars. Though the team barely does well, Wanyama’s talent has skyrocketed to his current position. He hails fromWestern Kenya.

 

Ajuma Nasenyana

 

Ajuma

Ajuma Nasenyana in a previous pageant

Kenyans are beautiful people, right? Well, Ajuma is one of the best expressions of black beauty, with a 6.78’ tall, slim and curved elegant body that everyone covets either to possess or profess! Well, Ajuma’s star rose high in 2003 when she was won the Miss Tourism Kenya. Ever since, she has been one of the top models in the United States and UK, modeling for the Victoria’s Secrets. She also featured in a film ‘How To Catch a Dream’. Ajuma hails from Turkana.

If you ask Naomi Campbell who rivals her most, she will frankly tell you ‘Ajuma Nasenyana’! Most Successful Kenyans Abroad, even on the runway!

 

Prof Ngugi Wa Thiong’o

Ngugi

Among African authors, Ngugi wa Thiong’o could probably fit as second in hierarchy from Chinua Achebe. He has authored so many novels and literary material that almost every upcoming writer wants to meet him as a life’s breathtaking moment! Ngugi’s books include: Weep Not Child, The River Between, Petals of Blood, Decolonization of the Mind’ and a list of endless literary material. It can’t go unmentioned, that as one of the Most Successful Kenyans Abroad, Ngugi has appeared in the list of Nobel nominees for quite far too long and it is time they just give it to him, or?! He is currently a professor at several universities in the United States.

 

Well, of course there are many other Successful Kenyans on the list. Barrack Obama himself is Kenyan, Lupita Nyong’o the Hollywood actress, Wangari Maathai- Nobel Laureate in 2004 for her role in environmental conservation and many more! And by the way, in this list, field athletes and runners have not been included. If we did, we’d have turned the article into a novel!
