Steve Jobs-Great Dude

Steve Jobs-Great Dude
'....A lot of times people don't know what they want until you show it to them'-Steve Jobs, March 25 1998
How prescient, how visionary! B-). Who will argue against this quote now? Not after the holy trinity of the ipod, the iphone and the ipad has ensured that Apple remains supreme in cyber world-bestriding our day to day life like a Colossus. Like any shrewd entrepreneur, he takes no prisoners.  Cruel that such a great man should suffer ill health. Well, you know what they say -“one cannot successfully achieve wealth, have a good health and a great family at the same time – something gotta give. The question is, which one.” :( Check out some of his other great quotes here.
Will his resignation take a big bite out of Apple? (no pun intended :) ) and cause this company to lose it's world domination? . If you're a betting man ,will you put your money on this outcome? I wouldn't :)

U20 World Cup Final-Brazil wins

U20 World Cup Final-Brazil wins
Brazil won the U20 World Cup earlier today-beating Portugal 3-2-and giving hope to millions of Brazilians. This team has shown what it means to wear the yellow and blue of the national side(unlike their mediocre counterparts in the senior squad) and should form the backbone of the squad which will be 'launching the assault' for the senior world cup in 2014. Incidentally, the Brazilians are hosting that competition.

Boring Premiership

Boring Premiership
Three of the main teams in the English Premiership were in action yesterday. Frankly, it was like watching paint dry!! :( Makes me wonder if this league is over-hyped. Liverpool vs Arsenal was like watching two relegation-bound teams!. Speaking of relegation, something drastic needs to happen at Arsenal 'cos they are in relegation form at the moment. At Chelsea, the only thing that has changed is the Manager. Goal-less Torres is still doing what he knows how to do best-failing to score !:D Anelka will always slow down the tempo of the attack, Drogba will continue to sulk for not been in the starting line up(rightly so, as I don't think Torres is better) and, sincerely, I don't think Kalou has what it takes at this level anymore. It's all looking good for Man. Utd again. I think their only serious competition is Man. City. It's early days yet, I hope things change because at the moment I think this is a boring league!!

David Starkey's ethnic year zero | Dreda Say Mitchell | Comment is free | The Guardian

David Starkey's ethnic year zero | Dreda Say Mitchell | Comment is free | The Guardian
Lesson for Starkey: Never try to intellectualize an issue that is so emotionally charged. As a white man( who has benefited from the privileges that this society affords people of his ilk) he will never understand the black struggle, let alone black culture. If you don't know me, don't judge me. This is not making excuses for the significant number of melanin-blessed people who continue to negatively portray the Race  with their bad behaviour. To those people, I say: you embarrass me, you embarrass yourself

'...Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, until there are no longer first class and second class citizens of any nation. Until the colour of a man's skin is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes, until their basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all, without regard to race, until that day, the dream of lasting peace world citizenship and the rule of International morality will remain in but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained...'
Speech from H. Selassie Jah Rastafari 1969. As a Historian-I hope Starkey remembers this speech :)

Let’s return to a clip round the ear culture


Let’s return to a clip round the ear culture

Read this interesting article this afternoon-an obvious response to the recent youth thuggery and violence in the UK. The responses by fellow readers were interesting. 
Hear one Molloy:

'Children misbehave because they get away with it, and discipline is the only answer. When my child was 2, she began with tantrums and loud obnoxious behavior. She was put out on the stairs, treats were withdrawn, and i now have a well behaved 9 year old with beautiful manners, who respects the rights of others. This was supported by projects in her school, which dealt with having 'kind words and kinds hands and feet'. Bullying, violence, and bad behavior is not tolerated. That said, her school is an Educate Together, which requires parents to get involved in decisions and policy implementation. Not every child is as lucky.
When such a vast amount of children misbehave, in such a violent and destructive way, we, as a society, have to take responsibility. Society has failed these kids. They have no hope, no community spirit, no feelings of culpability, compassion, or remorse. The footage of them robbing that young man whose jaw was broken, as his blood poured down his face onto the street, was stomach turning. What kind of a human being can feel so little for the suffering of another, that they can further abuse them in a situation that should inspire compassion, even in the most heartless and cynical of people? They, obviously, felt none.
A 'clip around the ear' is not the answer. Suggesting that there is any immediate quick fix for this situation is ludicrous. The end result of treating human beings as merely consumers and economic units has just been demonstrated. If people are taught to do nothing more than consume, and told that this is all that defines them- property as personal worth and status- and then left in situations where they have no hope of attaining these aspirations; then, like locusts, they will consume, even when they don't have the means to do so.
Blaming the kids themselves, the welfare system, or liberal notions of punishment for bad behavior, is missing their point; and not listening the these kids now is going to have drastic consequences. What are they going to be like in their 20s and 30s, if this is what they're doing now?
Children learn by example. At the moment, most governments are putting economic concerns first, as a priority above investing in the social fabric that generates and serves their economy. The elderly, the disabled, children with special educational needs, schools, hospitals, and the worst off in society are all suffering, as a result. The media bombards us with images daily, we are accosted by advertising everywhere we go, which tells us that acquisition is the only route to happiness and self-worth. We are told that only the strong survive, that you have to be ruthless to succeed. Those who cannot consume in the same way- the poor, the disabled, the elderly- are worthless, and have nothing to offer.

These children have absorbed these lessons perfectly, and the riots, looting, callous behavior, and total lack of consideration and compassion for others is the end result. Children don't listen to what you say; they watch what you do. The baying for swift retribution and 'justice' is absurd, but it exonerates the rest of society from feeling any responsibility for what's just happened.

These kids are a symptom of a very sick society. There aren't any quick and easy answers, but the questions their actions raise need to be examined, not dismissed with glib buzz words, and knee-jerk reactions. Perhaps if they were being raised in a society whose governments and media endorsed social responsibility, care for the vulnerable, and civic values of decency and compassion, they wouldn't behave like this? If you teach kids those values by example, they will live by them. A person is worth what they contribute to life, in time, knowledge, compassion, and consideration- not the price of their trainers' 

God bless you, Molloy. I hope the policy makers are listening.

Nigeria won her third consecutive match with goals from Ahmed Musa and Olanrewaju Kayode late in both halves. Both teams however advance-but Nigeria avoids meeting the Brazilians in the quarter-finals-playing England, instead.
Ahmed Musa is gradually becoming one of the players of the tournament. He currently plys his trade for VVV Venlo in the Eredivisie. At this rate, he'll surely move to a better club after the competition

Dog Day Afternoon-'Kiss me...'

Dog Day Afternoon-'Kiss me...'
Dog Day Afternoon(1975) 'Kiss me, when I'm being f*cked I like to get kissed..' laughing smiley Bank Robber- Sonny Wortzik's(Al Pacino) sarcastic sexual quote-showing his disdain for the way Det. Sgt. Eugene Moretti (Charles Durning) was trying to con him into surrendering. This bank-robbery-gone-wrong drama based on a true life story was critically acclaimed-winning one Oscar(best original screen play). 
This particular scene was memorable for the way Sonny turned a hopeless situation around(temporarily)-even managing to garner public sympathy with his chant of Attica. Pacino's performance and quotes were pure joy! sunglasses smiley
He was nominated by the Oscars for best actor but lost to Jack Nicholson(One flew over the cuckoo's nest)-he won a BAFTA that year though and his performance as Sonny was cited by Premiere magazine(2006) as the 4th greatest ever.
