My name is Tererai Trent I was born and raised in rural Zimbabwe, and my dream growing up was to have an education. I met a woman who inspired me to believe in my dreams; I buried a list of my education goals under a rock where I used to herd cattle. I believed in achieving these against many challenges. The rock where I buried my dreams solidified and grounded me in many ways. I was at peace since I knew I had made a pact with the rock to keep my dreams alive!Today, I hold a PhD, which allows me to work all over the world, because other people cared enough to help me fulfill my dreams.

Those who downed six or more cups of coffee a day had a 20% lower risk of developing any sort of prostate cancer, and a 60% lower risk of lethal prostate cancer. Even those who were more moderate, drinking one to three cups per day, were 30% less likely to have lethal prostate cancer — and the benefits were the same, regardless if the coffee was decaffeinated or not.

Today, psychologists explain that people who join groups such as the Ku Klux Klan are insecure and feel a need to belong to something that makes them feel powerful and superior. Perhaps W.E.B. Du Bois, historian and civil rights leader, understood Klansmen best: "These human beings at heart are desperately afraid of something," explained Du Bois. "Of what? Of many things, but usually of losing their jobs, being declassed, degraded, or actually disgraced; of losing their hopes, their savings, their plans for their children; of the actual pangs of hunger, of dirt of crime."

- finally buy new tires for my car;
- get out of Kampala for a weekend.
- the pleasures of the amazing views from the bank of the Nile River;
- being a wordsmith during an intellectually stimulating game of Scrabble with worthy, genius opponents;
- developing new massage techniques during impromptu twilight therapy sessions.
- It seems kind of like carefree.
- It's like a peanut allergy, like an emotional peanut allergy.
- Don't dress up your penis, ever.
- I can't focus on my porn with all this real sex going on around me.
- Did you make me a period mix?
- We're sluts, Emma, we're dirty, dirty sluts.
- No, we don't need her; make her leave.
- You look like a pumpkin, bitch!...
- Ring! Ring! It's the pumpkin patch; they want their pumpkins back.
We're not pumpkins!We're ladies!Well you're so orange!Hey, someone call Charlie Brown! We found the great pumpkin!
- That hole is my bitch.
- That's why they call him Bones.
- Because he loves Lil' Wayne, ok? You don't know everything about your dad.
- I think I'm gonna do it all the time. It's gonna get weird.

“DP wrote a letter informing us that they intended to hold a rally at Kololo. Arrangements were made on Thursday to meet the organisers at Kololo but they did not turn up,” he explained.
“On Friday, they communicated that they had postponed the rally and changed the venue to Constitutional Square. We shall not allow this.”
“Police told us they had no problem with it but said the management of the grounds is under President’s Office. They demanded for a letter from the office showing that we have been cleared to use it (ground),” DP president Norbert Mao said.
The recent riots were a very sad event. What really went on? How many people really lost their lives due to excessive use of force? How did all those people get shot if, as one paper reported, the police only used tear gas, batons and water cannons.

The New Vision: In return the Police and army used tear gas and batons to disperse the rioters.The Police also used a water cannon truck, which constantly released a colored, itchy liquid into the people.
What's its purpose?
To borrow a favourite quote from Elle Woods:
I'm well aware that stories can be told from different angles, and I've had my own experiences with having my words twisted or being quoted out of context. However, I cannot help but think that some of what is being written/said is intentionally being spun to confuse the public and/or incite emotions.
"Who do you trust! Hubba, hubba, hubba! Money, money, money! Who do you trust? Me? I'm giving away free money."

Somebody Please Tell Nicks Who the Eff I Is
I am Timothy Hatcher...
Super Bass and its accompanying video are two more reasons why Ms. Minaj is my current teenage crush.
Imitation is said to be the sincerest form of flattery, right? Well, Nicks has some pretty high-profile peeps offering up their best and sincerest attempts at flattery.
Selena Gomez's cover has already made an appearance on my blog. It's just so fun!

And on that note: Just a kiss goodnight.
