No but yeah but no but yeah.

No but yeah but no but yeah.

There are two kinds of people in this world. Those people who say yes and mean yes and those who say yes and mean no or maybe. How can you tell them apart? You can't.

Just how honest is too honest? As a straight shooter, tell-it-like-it-is advocate I am constantly under fire to watch my mouth and be more diplomatic in expressing my thoughts and feelings. As a rule, I do not volunteer my opinion on sensitive issues or to sensitive people unless asked. Questions such as 'how do I look?', 'Am I fat?' are best directed at other people unless you really do want to know the answer. I don't see the point of lying unless I am going to get into trouble for telling the truth and so the only two people I tell fibs to are the traffic police and my mother.

Is it true that sometimes people ask you an apparently straightforward question but don't really want you to be honest with them? This concept really baffles me. If someone asks me whether they look fat and they look like a right hippo, they can rest assured that all their doubts on the issue will be allayed and what they will come to possess is the total knowledge that they are fat.

I have a friend who is a self-confessed two face and she is proud of it. In order to avoid hurting your feelings she will tell you the very thing you want to hear and then tell her friends the truth when your back is turned. I never ask her opinion on anything.

I have another friend who finds it extremely difficult to say no. This would be a wonderful personality trait if she actually intended to do the thing she has promised you. If I cannot do something I usually say no upfront because I'd rather do that than have to avoid phone calls and make up excuses and generally be a dodgy fellow.

I understand that you should sugar coat things sometimes,I'm not completely tactless. You should refuse the impossible nicely. An acquaintance asked me once to bring back an overweight suitcase for them because they already had two bags and I had just one. Plus they were leaving that night and I was leaving in a couple of days. Alarm bells immediately started going off in my head and I could all but taste prison food in my mouth as I was having flash forwards of the people at customs finding pure cocaine in the lining of the bag.I told him N to the O plus I do not know you from Adam. Okay not in those words, but I did make sure he knew why I refused to do it. I could not vouch for what the bag contained and I was not prepared find out.

I told this story to a friend and she said I should have said yes at first and proceeded to screen all my calls till the appointed time of departure. This appears to be expected behaviour.Another time my colleague asked me to take some money to her sister in the UK because she wanted to save money on the bank transfer charges. Once again I had flash forwards of forgetting the money in Abuja or leaving my hand bag on the plane and having to explain how I came to no longer be in possession of the cash. I could not do it. I did not think I knew her well enough for her not to think I was a liar and a thief and every other name in her language she would certainly call me if I told her I had lost the 2000 pounds. Of course I politely declined outlining the above explanation and what do you know this woman starts arguing with me talking about how rude it is to say no pointblank, how can I say we do not know each other that well and all sorts of Christian Religious Studies.

I am now confused,should I reverse and rewrite 20 something odd years of honest intentions and forthright behaviour just to please the faint hearted or are there many more people like me who just wanna hear to truth and have a place to turn for a good dose of it?

I do not come to you by chance

I Do Not Come To You By Chance 

I just finished this novel called I do not come to you by chance by a Nigerian Author Tricia Nwaubani. While I would not say that shes broken any literary records it was a very good story. An apt portrayal of the Nigerian advanced fee fraud industry, because that is what it is. I say she hasnt broken literary records because her style, in my humble view is not very solid. Her story, though, speaks for itself in the sense that the story sucks you in and you almost start to believe that the characters are your next door neighbours and you can see, smell and touch them.

She also does not end the story in that way that most of these stories end where everyone lives happily ever after. The ending is actually quite realistic appreciating that life gives you a bunch of lemons and you have to make lemonade.

Now its a common fact that we bloggers are aspiring writers/authors/novelists/call us what you want and I am no exception. If only a good plot would come to me, and I would find the time to put pen to paper, or rather fingertip to keyboard of my rather ancient 2005-model toshiba laptop with the quote mark key not working. I am inspired by Nigerian female writers such as Chimamanda Adichie and Tricia Nwaubani for actually believing in themselves and trusting their abilities and not restricting themselves. Their books can be found chest to chest with international bestseling authors in foreign countries.

Alas, I have to keep dreaming that one day I will actually be a writer like carrie Bradshaw, especially Carrie Bradshaw although I wont be writing anything remotely about sex. No, even I am not that liberal(yet). Instead i will pour all my thought into this my personal space, this blog I have been trying to write and sustain for the past two years(with a high fail rate) and I hope that one or two people will find the time to read and enjoy it.

Why People Hate Female Doctors

The average age men are getting marry is around 25 years of age. This means, on average a man is capable to take care of themselves for 30 years prior to admitting to the life of marriage. On average a men can then make it a year or two before their wives feel the need to start getting them healthy.
Also would you have read this if the title was “I am a tiny winy man, and I could not control my wife?”

We are not here to talk about the man that Dr is, but more the lifestyle changes that we have to endure because the better half in our life has watched Dr and is now changing the things we love. This is a blog to get our voice BACK…at least out of the ear shot from our wives that is.

When our wives start in with a lecture on, “Well I saw on Dr …” A man could just scream. And so, that is what we have created, a place to scream, “I could give a rats tail what Doctor z says…pass the gravy and hand me my beer!!”

Don’t get us wrong, we actually think Dr is a great doctor, and we don’t hate him specifically. However, the desire to sit down in the evening and have a beer, a soda, or maybe even a glass of Gatorade, without the wife bringing up Dr z and high fructose corn syrup.

Battlefield Knowledge - L85A2 Weapon Analysis

13 Ways to Die - Mass Effect 3

13 Ways to Die - Mass Effect 3

Episode 2 takes on the Reapers! I've taken on-board some of the criticisms from last time (More sound effects etc) and am much happier with this one! More silliness too! :D

The Punkbuster Bible KING JAMES VERSION

The Punkbuster Bible 

1st: Let's start with the eula from pb that you agreed to:

PunkBuster notes they may be considered invasive, and that they reserve the right to inspect someone's entire hard drive and all of their files: "Licensee understands and agrees that the information that may be inspected and reported by PunkBuster software includes, but is not limited to, Licensee's Internet Protocol Address, devices and any files residing on the hard-drive and in the memory of the computer on which PunkBuster software is installed." "Further, Licensee consents to allow PunkBuster software to transfer actual screenshots taken of Licensee's computer during the operation of PunkBuster software for possible publication." "Licensee agrees that any harm or lack of privacy resulting from the installation and use of PunkBuster software is not as valuable to Licensee as the potential ability to play interactive online games with the benefits afforded by using PunkBuster software."
This is why you must rename the hack exe. to anything that has nothing to do with hacking and put it inside of another folder and not on your desktop as they will be searching for it.

2nd:You receive a pop up message and you are kicked from the server.

This is an admin that kicked you to make room for a member of that server(clan member etc) or it is a script running so it kicks you for team killing, base raping, high ping etc. you are not banned just kicked from that particular server temporary.

3rd:You recieve a pop up message pb error.

81001:Corrupted File/Memory = Run a virus/malware scan of your computer to see if anything is trying to attach itself to the running program.(ex.fraps) Also run a memory stress test to see if there is a fault there that could be causing issues. You can find such a program on the following website: - Memory Diagnostic

85000: corrupted file or memory = reinstall PB

9005: loosing key packets = Turn off firewall and anything else using internet (ex.downloading movies,music,games etc)

125083: Shut off any programs you have running in the background.

Disallowed Program/Driver: = Disable steam overlay,open steam,go to File/ Settings/ Ingame tab/ Uncheck the "Enable Steam Community In-Game" checkbox/ Restart Steam
PnkBstrB.exe initialization failed: = Delete the PB folder from the game directory and in C:/Users/username/AppData/Local/PunkBuster/bbc2, uninstall pb and reinstall again
PnkBstrB.exe heartbeats stopped: = download the Pbsvc.exe and run the uninstaller. Then reinstall the services. If you have a firewall make sure you allow Pnkbstr A and B files full access.

4th: How to install, uninstall and update pb:

Uninstall: = Download pbsvc/run the Uninstaller in pbsvc,go to C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Battlefield Bad Company 2 and delete the pb folder to remove any leftover files, if you don't find it, search for pb, run Ccleaner and restart your pc
Install: = Run pbsvc again and Re-Install all Punkbuster Serivces,if your using Vista don't set compatibility to XP, run as admin, after it installs click the test option to check the punk buster install you just did it should come back all green
Update: Download pbsetup/ it will automatically updates your Punkbuster, If your using Vista/7 don't set compatibility to XP, run as admin,run pbsetup and add BFBC2 if its not already listed

5th: You receive the pop up window with ban message:

Most of the time these are just admin bans that mean you are banned from that particular server and if you try to join that sever again it will say something like "prior/kickban" You are raging and the server admin caught you or someone went on their ventrillo or team speak and called in admin to ban you remember a admin can make the pop up window message read anything he wants and if they own more than one server they may add you to the ban list on their other servers. Sometimes they ban you just by your soldier name and you can create a new soldier and rage the server again. This is not a guid ban you can join any other server

6th:The real ban:

You receve a pop up window AIMBOT #50*** this means your guid is banned. This means your key is banned. It doesn't matter if you run the hack or not now cause that cd key is banned. You can still play on non pb servers. To play on a Pb server you will need a new key, a new email address, and create a new soldier. You do not have to delete and reinstall BBC2. Just use ea download manager activate a new email. Now go and start BBC2 enter your new email and password and it will ask you for the new key, enter the new key and make a new soldier. In steam make a new steam account with a new email. Do not use your old steam account or your old ea email account.

7th: Delay ban:

The reason they do this is pretty simple really. Before the delay system hack forums would just rely on feedback, as soon as someone posted that the hack was detected, everybody stopped using it. 2-3 people got banned, and many players were saved their GUID's to cheat again, so long as you checked the forums daily for detection status, you were for the most part fine to cheat as you pleased. To counter this, Punkbuster started a delay ban system. In other words, when they figure out the algorithm a hack uses, they add that to their detection database, anyone who uses a hack for the 1-2 weeks while it is there will be stuck in a waiting list to be banned. Then Punkbuster updates the client and everyone gets banned the next time they play whether running the hack at that time or not. This way it's not a few players getting banned, but instead a few hundred to even thousands on some hack communities.This is why you see people saying the new hack is detected because they are on the delay ban and they load the new undetected hack and they got banned.

Tramadol Why The Hype ?

Tramadol Why The Hype ?

Me and my husband firm have tried this on several credit occasions, and it seems to work well. Tramadol

Another method will be to submerge your feet in a basin of warm water so that it bring the blood pressure down from your throbbing head. Drugs

As Panadol is a pain killer, the more Panadol you take, the lesser would be your threshold for pain (your endurance level for p! ain).

We all will fall ill as we aged, for woman, we would need to go through childbirth. Imagine that we had spent our entire life popping quite a substantial amount of Panadol (Pain Killer) when you need to have a surgery or operation, you will need a much more amount of general anesthetic to numb your surgical pain than the average person who seldom or rarely takes Panadol.

If you have a very high intake dvd release of Panadol throughout your life (Migraine, Menstrual cramps) it is very likely that normal general anesthetic will have no effects on you as your body is pumped full with panadol and your body is so used to pain killer that you woul! d need a much stronger pain killer, Morphine??

Value your life, THINK b4 you easily pop that familiar pill into your mouth again. Please send this to people you care about. Mad Men season 5

One real story from a friend....

My husband was working in a hospital as an IT engineer, as the hospital is planning to set up a database of its patient. And he knows some of the doctors quite well.

The doctors used to tell him that whenever they have a headache, they are not willing to take PANADOL (PARACETMOL). In fact,they will turn to Chinese Herbal Medicine or find other alternatives.

This is because Panadol is toxic to the body, and it harms the liver. According to the doctor, Panadol will reside in the body for at least 5 years.

And according to the doctor, there used to be an incident where an air stewardess consumes a lot of panadol during her menstrual as she needs to stand all the time. She ' s now in her early 30 ' s, and she needs to wash her kidney (DIALYSIS) torrent every month.

As said by the doctor that whenever we have a headache, that ' s because it is due to the electron/Ion imbalance in the brain.

Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer BEST EPIC STRATEGY GUIDE

If I were asked what the one thing is that separates the good and bad players, it would be situational awareness. If were to only take away one thing from this guide, this I believe to be the most critical. While many have began to instinctively perform these actions without such examination, it is by putting it into simple language that those of us who haven't may begin to do so and those of us who have to improve through careful examination.

Situational Awareness
Particularly in our case called Battlefield Awareness, is remaining knowledgeable about your environment, the implications of every aspect of it, and it's projected status when variables have changed. To break that down in our situation this means to...

A.) Remain aware of the environment.
Know the map. Every nook and cranny. Know where every ammo boxes are and always know how much ammo you have left. Know which of you powers is best used in what situation and remain aware of the cooldown. Most importantly this means knowing where the enemy is at all times. There is a phenomenon called tunnel vision in which we become so focused on an objective, such as bursting down an important target, that we lose awareness. It is critical to realize when your doing this. If you are shooting at an enemy and suddenly you are shot from the side or back, you weren't remaining as aware as you could have been. To prevent this you...

B.) Know the implications of every aspect of the environment.
Know every piece of cover. Notice every direction in which every piece of cover gives you an advantage and more importantly note the weaknesses, which directions you can be shot from. Enemies will aggressively flank you which means trying to expose your weaker areas. Retaining awareness will allow you to react as quickly as possible when an enemy tries to do this. Knowing the cover intimately will allow you to move to a more favorable position where you gain the advantage, but it is absolutely key to retain awareness while doing this so that you do not expose yourself to the fire of another enemy. At any given time there is a most advantageous position to be in and you should be there. Variables change quickly however, so the most advantageous position one moment could be the worst the next. In order to determine what to do in these situations we must...

C.) Know all the possible outcomes of any given situation.
It is only through remaining aware of your environment and knowing the implications of it can we predict what will happen when variables change. This means knowing with confidence what to do no matter what happens. What if that enemy starts to flank you? Where will you move? What if there is an enemy turret around that corner? What if a phantom suddenly appears behind you? What if you head into that room and there are two atlas, three phantoms, a turret in opposite corners denying you cover, and smoke grenades are being tossed everywhere? We must ideally have a plan for each of the situations before you even turn that corner, head through that door, get shot in the back, etc. If that plan fails then you must in split seconds determine what the best course of action is. Expect your plan to fail miserably and have a second one immediately prepared. By layering these contingency plans we can retain the greatest advantage possible in any situation no matter what we are faced with.

Note that reading about this topic is certainly not enough, you must experience it.
Most importantly to capitalize on that experience, you must examine it. Soldiers in real life do not have the luxury of mistakes, but we do. A mistake is never a bad thing provided that you have learned from it. Any time you have done something wrong or even at any time in which you did not do the absolute best you could have, examine the implications of your actions. Study what you could have done to improve in that situation and experiment. Every mistake you make is an opportunity in which to learn a valuable lesson. The consequence of your actions essentially end with that session, but the lesson you potentially learn will be carried over into every game afterward. Playing it safe is usually good, until your faced with a worst case scenario. It is only by facing those situations and examining the implications of your actions can you know with certainty what to do when they happen. When you have become adept at adapting to the worst case scenario, you will find yourself maximizing advantages when your plans do succeed.

Splitting The Group
The second topic I'd like to discuss are the act of splitting into coordinated groups.

I cannot stress enough the advantages of dividing into two man teams.
Two individuals move together to support each other, never moving so far that they cannot support the other group. The ideal would be having one individual who can strip defenses (this can be through sustained fire or abilities like overload/energy drain) and the other who can provide some damage mitigation (this can be through krogan with fortification or even crowd control abilities like combat drone or stasis). Some abilities can do both, like overload, and some classes can do both, like engineer. Redundancy is a good thing provided you have divided the groups in the most advantageous way possible without leaving the other lacking. This changes depending on not only the skill of the player, their class, but even the choices in power evolutions. I wont go into listing the most advantageous groupings here because that could be an it's own very wordy topic. Moreover each group it would be good to have someone to have long range capability and one short range for maximum versatility.

Changing group dynamics on the fly is most advantageous.
If you'd have an appropriate amount of redundancy in capabilities, you could even further divide the group into several possible groupings given the situation. Group A, Player 1 (with long range) with player 2 (short range) would be default for adaptability and similarly with group B. Should you be faced with a situation such as enemies spawning down a long firing lane such as the Cerberus base, you could change the group dynamic to a second configuration. The groups then change to Group C, with both long range players setting up on the high ground, while Group D now formed of both short range players flaking the same enemy group and attack from the side through the corridors. You must understand in changing configurations like this, you are changing the strengths and weaknesses of each group. The concept relies upon knowing which group can capitalize on a given situation in order to play to it's strengths and minimize it's weaknesses. This is a very basic structure of the possibilities, attempting to maximize effectiveness for a given situation. It is key in using such a plan of course to have good communication and the players know exactly what to do when changing the group dynamics. Also a certain amount of redundancy is needed in roles such as defense stripping and damage mitigation, you do not want to
leave any possible group configuration lacking in a key area if your goal is to maximize advantages while retaining adaptability for when variables change.

Mobility is absolutely key.
I touched on the aspect of flanking using these two groups and to do this it is not necessary to get so complex as I have done in the paragraph above. The advantages of the two group structure are invaluable even with suboptimal groupings. This inherently provides damage mitigation by dividing enemy fire and splitting their attention, while giving you the advantage of focusing on more singular grouping. An enemy will often focus on one group, who is not even being actively damaged because of cover, while the second group sweeps those who are not focused on them. Each group covers the other to create a situation where you are mitigating damage to you and maximizing damage to them. Maximizing of course with area denial in such that an enemies cover may provide nearly complete defense to one groups firing lane, it provides none to a second group who is flanked to the side effectively denying them the area.

To use the term in a rudimentary fashion, this establishes a killbox.
This means that if the enemy takes cover from group a, group b has a clear firing lane to pick them off and vise versa. So no matter where they move, they will not have cover. For example anyone who has played enough at the Cerberus base may know about the L shaped area with a ladder down to it to the side of the center high ground with the ammo box. Enemies will often spawn near the landing pad down one alleyway as well as to the opposite side of the level parallel to the corridor. This makes being in that corner near the ladder into a killbox where if you take cover from one enemy group, the other can clearly hit you. I've seen it wipe entire groups due to a lack of understanding that this area is inherently disadvantageous. Our goal splitting into groups is to use this same tactic on the enemy. This goes back to battlefield awareness, knowing where the best position for each player to be at any given moment in direct relation to each other player and each other enemy.

In conclusion, I have been playing far to much trying to get my girlfriend the asari adept.

Making half a billion dollars disappear

Levy had vowed his store will stay open, but he said in an April 6 blog post that he will be stepping down from the day-to-day activities of running Hank Lee's Magic Factory and will leave that to his employees. Of course, he may have to do that, anyway. He is looking at possible jail time, though due to a plea agreement, prosecutors aren't going to try to put him away forever.

If it weren't so sad, capitalone this might be a funny story. After all, the owner of a magic shop in Boston took a customer's credit card and made half a million dollars disappear.
But looking deeper, it's really the story of a man who caused himself and his friends and family a lot of pain.
Hank Lee's Magic Factory in Medford, Mass., has been something of a landmark -- for magicians, at least -- in the greater Boston area since 1975. According to a 1982 Boston Globe feature, Harry Levy, 61, the owner, got into magic way back in 1959. So this is a well established business with an owner-magician who, by all accounts, was a reputable pillar of the community capitalone.

But Levy pulled an elaborate trick on a customer and made his own reputation disappear.
According to the Boston Globe, Levy recently pleaded guilty to making over $500,000 in unauthorized transactions on a customer's capitalone credit card.

The Globe reported that Levy was charged with making 134 capitalone transactions over the course of nearly two years on a wealthy Texas customer's American Express card. This went on until apparently the cardholder said, "Hey, wait a minute…"
And I guess that's what it's really like to be rich. To go two years and not notice that you've had half a million dollars stolen.

Levy had vowed his store will stay open, but he said in an April 6 capitalone blog post that he will be stepping down from the day-to-day activities of running Hank Lee's Magic Factory and will leave that to his employees. Of course, he may have to do that, anyway. He is looking at possible jail time, though due to a plea agreement, prosecutors aren't going to try to put him away forever.

Got till it's gone

Got till it's gone 

As promised, I'm here delivering my weekly dose of wisdom and reflection to you all. Unfortunately, today's post will be tinged with a shot of sadness and grief. They say you never miss a good thing till it's gone. A lot of the time we take a lot of good things for granted- we don't realise that there could ever be a time when that thing will not be right where we left it. We procrastinate about other things forgetting that time waits for no man and it only takes a second for someone to close their eyes and be taken away from us and from this world.

Last week it was Fabrice Muamba who I had never heard of until I noticed several updates on my Blackberry with various incarnations of 'pray for Muamba'. I couldn't stand being the odd one out anymore and a quick survey on Google and my trusty Wiki revealed to me that this young man(only 23)collapsed on the pitch during a game of football supposedly from a heart attack. The sub plot was that he had a 1 year old son and a fiancee whom he had betrothed just on Valentine's day. My heart skipped a beat. Not because I particularly care whether any footballer departs from this earth any more than I care whether a footballer is born, but because on sober reflection, I realised that it was possible that Muamba's fiancee had a fight with him that morning.She might even have uttered the two deadly words: 'drop dead!' in a fit of vexed passion, not meaning a word of it but as is usually the case when one is filled with blind fury saying the first hurtful thing that comes to mind. The alternative scenario is that there wasn't any fight.Maybe she embraced him as he departed for London from Paris, uttering one or two words of encouragement about his upcoming game against Tottenham Hotspur assuming that he would return, of course, after the game back to her and their son Joshua.He's in critical condition, they say, but he's not gone.

I also remember many years ago when I lost one of my best friends, it was and still is the most sobering experience that I've had in my 20 something years on earth, to date. I could not reconcile the news that she had died in a car accident with the fresh memories of parties we escaped to in secondary school right after classes and right after we sloped home claiming to be at after school lessons. Memories of our many conversations of which guy was hot and which wasn't from the measly selection we had at school those days. Memories of our joint attempt to master the lyrics to 'Candy Rain' and 'The boy is mine' in thirty minutes flat. A friend who I'd known from the first day of the first year in secondary school, I simply could not process the news. But I just saw her a couple of months ago, I thought.It was a few months after I'd relocated to London from Nigeria and we kept making plans to meet up and postponing them, assuming of course that there would always be tomorrow. Well, tomorrow never came and when I thought about the silly arguments we'd had in the past over complete and utter inconsequentials, it made my heart break. I would give up every one of those fights just to bring her back to this earth. All the times I wished she'd disappear from the face of the earth- well, she did, and I couldn't wish her back.

The phrase taken for granted literally means to assume that a thing will always be there just like the air that we breathe.We only have to be alive and the air fills our lungs automatically- granted.Some people take their jobs for granted- phoning up sick in order to go and watch the tennis at Wimbledon,cursing the day they took the job because the workload is too heavy and they've missed their lunchbreak, again. And then the recession happened and they were out of jobs. Who gets to watch Wimbledon all day now? And whose bank balance is in double barrel zeros? That's right.

For others, it's their cars. I remember during a particularly barren period of fuel scarcity in Abuja once when I could not buy fuel to drive my car-queuing up to buy petrol was literally a contact sport- and I'd literally glare at the redundant,bright blue thing parked in front of the house that couldn't do a thing for me because it was juice-less. This was a car that I'd just hop in and out of previously expecting that when the little wand dipped below a quarter tank I'd just pop down to my local AP petrol station, pop the lever and have them refill the juice. I took that automobile for granted. It was only when the fuel scarcity began,persisted and lasted that I realised that car was indeed a luxury. After being alternately beaten by the sun and pelted by the rain in the name of waiting for taxis; having had to endure the indignity of pleading for rides from semi-strangers and then watching the nairas deflate in my wallet all in the name of transport in Abuja, I began to appreciate the convenience and comfort that bright blue thing afforded which I never thought about because it was just there whenever I wanted it-granted.

To take something for granted or much more someone, is to assume that they will always be there,like the birds in the sky or like a new morning when we wake up. It is to assume that the person owes you their time and resources. It is to assume that nobody else has any use for that thing but you. It is to presume that the thing only has one home. The only constant thing is change and even birds migrate when they find more comfortable trees to build their nests.

This post is dedicated to my dear uncle who passed away this morning.May his soul rest in peace.

FOX Makes No Bones About An Eighth Season Renewal

The last few years, the fate of whether Bones would get picked up for another season has been coming down to the wire. The last few renewals have come at or near the May deadline for network upfront presentations of their new fall lineups, but this year, fans of the saga of Boones, Booth, and the rest of the squints can breathe an early sigh of relief. reports that FOX has given the series an early pick up for an eighth round. This order will see the long-running procedural dramedy hit the 150 episode mark.

Kevin Reilly, President of FOX Entertainment, had this to say regarding the announcement: "Over the past seven seasons, Hart Hanson, Stephen Nathan and the incredible Bones cast and crew have redefined the traditional crime procedural with an irreverent and adventurous sensibility and I’m really happy to have this distinctive, fan-favorite on our schedule for another season."

It's not hard to see why FOX jumped on these Bones faster than usual this year. The network has had an unusually unsuccessful lineup of new series this season, with Terra Nova, I Hate My Teenage Daughter, and Allen Gregory already canceled, House ending, Alcatraz, Breaking In, Napoleon Dynamite, and Bones spinoff The Finder all pretty clearly headed to the graveyard, and Fringe hanging on for dear life. The way things are looking, FOX is going to have a dearth of established returning programs next season, it's not surprising that they would be in a hurry to lock in one of their few scripted dramas that actually gets good ratings.

Are you pleased that Bones will return? Or should it have quit while it was ahead?

No Justice, No Peace,

In the religion of the Yoruba people, Obatala is the king of the white cloth.  This Orisa must love chlorine bleach and Mr. Clean because his white clothing is always unblemished and pristine.  He is often depicted as a wizened elder dressed in his white cloth from head to toe.  His great age is simply a manifestation of his wisdom.  And if he is illustrated with hair it is always the peppered or white that indicates significant age.  He is the one Orisa with the responsibility to create land over the water.  Baba Obatala’s realm is the mountains, especially the ones with snow capped peaks.  He is the old man that rarely moves and when he does, it is slowly and with a purpose.  But when he does move, pay close attention because its significance is as great as a massive earthquake.

His energy is the essence of clarity.  It is clarity that allows humans to make the right decisions and to differentiate right from wrong and perhaps most importantly, to see things as they truly are.  And it is because of this energy that Obatala is the Orisa of the courthouse and of all things judicial.  White forms a perfect background for correctly seeing and identifying that which is around you.  His association with the color white is also viewed as a sign of purity in the ability to discern and to make judgments.  His energy gives us the ability to see the complete picture for any issue needing to be judged and weighed despite the complexity.  For the children of Obatala the world is seen in black and white and there is no gray area.  With Obatala help, we can see things as either right or wrong and there is rarely any middle ground.

Obatala can only help us do our jobs to find clarity and seek the truth when we make the honest search for truth our goal.  But when our law enforcers are not honest and use their position as arbitrator to push a particular outcome based on personal bias and prejudice, Baba Obatala has no choice but to wash his hands of the matter and leave people to their own devices void of any clarity or righteousness.  And the result is chaos and mistrust and nothing that even remotely resembles justice.

Ever since people of African descent set foot in America we have been forced to deal with the painful backhand of America’s justice system.  It is this alleged justice system that judged black people as less than human.  An honest look at what it means to be human would have recognized black people as people with a different skin color and heritage.  But people had an agenda when the question was asked if it was right to consider the children of Africa the equal of the Caucasian.  White people would lose their source of cheap labor if the question was answered honestly.  And therefore, from the beginning black people were judged a lesser form of life void of any hope of justice.  And the lack of true justice that was established then is the same pattern of justice that we continue to follow today.

Today, the prejudice against black people is thick.  Despite the legal presumption that a defendant is innocent until he or she is actually proven to be guilty, our justice system regularly operates under the presumption that black people are in fact guilty and a trial in a court of law is just a formal, drawn out process full of legalese to reach a foregone conclusion.  Statistics show that black people are more inclined to commit crime and so we can dispense with any real determination of facts and just run with our racially tainted prejudice.  Never mind the fact that the circular logic that black people are more likely to be guilty therefore we can find them guilty without really looking for truth.  The chance for real justice is lost, or at the very least unfairly far more difficult to obtain.  It is very unfortunately that our national collective has decided to stumble down this path of mistrust and fear.

Just like all of our other social systems, the judicial system is heavily biased and heavily weighted against the well being of people in the black community.  We like to promote the idea that our courtroom is a place where people are judged by the merits of their case.  But all too often the baggage of our learned social orthodoxies is just as much a part of standard courtroom procedure as a gavel or the black judge’s robe.  Color that robe black and give your honor a matching pointy hat and nobody would know the difference.  Give that same modified uniform to a lot of people who work to keep the wheels of justice moving, if only at a snail’s pace, and you would have a much more precise image of our justice and legal system.

It’s time people wake up to the fact that the United States judicial system was never meant to be a place where black people would be treated fairly.  When it comes to black people America’s special brand of justice is about as blind as the Hubble space telescope.  There is no clarity.  There is no truth.  There is nothing to make sure the process is fair for people in the black community.  That’s the way it was founded.  That’s the way it exists today.  Hopefully, we will come to the realization that this injustice needs some kind of attention.  And just like when the mountain moves things will be shaken up to such a point our national community will have no choice but to sit up and take notice.   And maybe then Baba Obatala will take his rightful place in our courtroom and we will have true clarity for a change.

Wanna Live Life to the Fullest ?

“Life is short, Break the Rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably. And never regret anything that makes you smile.”-Mark Twain
As Jack London once said, “The proper function of man is to live, not to exist.”  Far too often we travel through life on autopilot, going through the motions, accepting what is, and having every day pass like the one before it.  Everything seems relatively normal and comfortable, except that constant twitch in the back of your mind that’s saying, “It’s time to make some changes.”

Here are 15 simple suggestions for those who want to break free from the mold and truly live more of their life – to experience it and enjoy it to the fullest, instead of settling for a mere existence.

  1. Appreciate the great people and things in your life. – Sometimes we don’t notice the things others do for us until they stop doing them.  Don’t be like that.  Be grateful for what you have, who loves you, and who cares for you.  You’ll never know how much they mean to you until the day they’re no longer beside you.  Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you.  Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it to live.
  2. Ignore other people’s negativity. – If you allow people to make more withdrawals than deposits in your life, you will be out of balance and in the negative before you know it.  Ignore unconstructive, hurtful commentary.  No one has the right to judge you.  They may have heard your stories, but they didn’t feel what you were going through.  You do not have control over what others say; but you do have control over whether or not you allow them to say these things to you.
  3. Forgive those who have hurt you. – I forgive people, but that doesn’t mean I trust them.  I just don’t have time to hate people who hurt me, because I’m too busy loving people who love me.  The first to apologize is the bravest.  The first to forgive is the strongest.  The first to move forward is the happiest.  Be brave.  Be strong.  Be happy.  Be free.
  4. Be who you really are. – If you’re lucky enough to have something that makes you different from everybody else, don’t change.  Uniqueness ispriceless.  In this crazy world that’s trying to make you like everyone else, find the courage to keep being your awesome self.  And when they laugh at you for being different, laugh back at them for being the same.  It takes a lot of courage to stand alone, but it’s worth it.  Being YOU is worth it!
  5. Choose to listen to your inner voice. – Life is a courageous journey or nothing at all.  We cannot become who we want to be by continuing to do exactly what we’ve been doing.  Choose to listen to your inner voice, not the jumbled opinions of everyone else.  Do what you know in your heart is right for YOU.  It’s your road, and yours alone.  Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.  And be sure to appreciate every day of your life.  Good days give you happiness, bad days give you experience, and the worst days give you the best lessons.
  6. Embrace change and enjoy your life as it unfolds. – The hardest part about growing is letting go of what you were used to, and moving on with something you’re not.  Sometimes you have to stop worrying, wondering, and doubting, and have faith that things will work out.  Laugh at the confusion, live consciously in the moment, and enjoy your life as it unfolds.  You might not end up exactly where you intended to go, but eventually you will arrive precisely where you need to be.
  7. Choose your relationships wisely. – The best relationships are not just about the good times you share, they’re also about the obstacles you go through together, and the fact that you still say “I love you” in the end.  And loving someone isn’t just about saying it every day, it’s showing it every day in every way.  Relationships must be chosen wisely.  Don’t rush love.  Wait until you truly find it.  Don’t let loneliness drive you back into the arms of someone you know you don’t belong with.  Fall in love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely.  A great relationship is worth waiting for.
  8. Recognize those who love you. – The most memorable people in your life will be the ones who loved you when you weren’t very loveable.  Pay attention to who these people are in your life, and love them back, even when they aren’t acting loveable.
  9. Love yourself too. – If you can love children, in spite of the messes they make; your mother, in spite of her tendency to nag; your father, even though he’s too opinionated; your sibling, even though she’s always late; your friend, even though he often forgets to return what he borrows, then you know how to love imperfect people, and can surely love yourself.
  10. Do things your future self will thank you for. – What you do every day matters more than what you do every once in a while.  What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.  Make sure it’s worthwhile.
  11. Be thankful for all the troubles you don’t have. – There are two ways of being rich: One is to have all you want, the other is to be satisfied with what you have.  Accept and appreciate things now, and you’ll find more happiness in every moment you live.  Happiness comes when we stop complaining about the troubles we have and offer thanks for all the troubles we don’t have.  And remember, you have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life.  Read The How of Happiness.
  12. Leave enough time for fun. – Sometimes you need to take a few steps back to see things clearly.  Never let your life become so filled with work, your mind become so crammed with worry, or your heart become so jammed with old hurts or anger, that there’s no room left in them for fun, for awe, or for joy.
  13. Enjoy the little things in life. – The best things in life are free.  There is absolute joy and wonder to be had in the simplest of moments.  Watching the sunset over the horizon or spending time with a family member. Enjoy the little things, because one day you may look back and discover they were the big things.
