Did we ALREADY forget about the Panama Papers?


Enjoy this April 2016 episode of The Daily Show on corruption among political leaders worldwide.

Journalism needs a longer memory, don't you think?  Or should that be left to the judiciary?

Why art?

It can feel like a hug sometimes.
It can feel like angels.

Is this Rwanda?

Everybody remembers the horrible genocide of the nineties.
Then Rwanda became an African miracle -
the little nation that could
turn that terrible past into a modern economy
following the leadership of one young-and-slender-like-Obama president.
I've only heard lovely things about the country.
So where is the shit?  
a society that cannot speak is like a body that cannot feel pain 
Because everybody shits.

Old Politicians, New Media and the very clever Trevor Noah



 I'm getting hooked on The Daily Show (again! - but this time, online, from a distance.) 

In this June 2016 episode, House Democrats Stage a Sit-In.  No, really.  A real protest (slash) slumber-party by US politicians over an issue very dear to the hearts of the American people.

Remember?

http://www.nationalplanning.gov.ng/images/docs/NationalPlans/nigeria-vision-20-20-20.pdf
Nigeria Vision 2020
We are a people with a vision.  Or two.  :)
Remember this one?  "The NV20:2020 economic transformation blueprint is a long term plan for stimulating Nigeria’s economic growth and launching the country onto a path of sustained and rapid socio-economic development. The blueprint articulates Nigeria’s economic growth and development strategies, for the eleven -year period between 2009 and 2020, and will be implemented using a series of medium term national development plans."
http://www.nationalplanning.gov.ng/index.php/national-plans/nv20-2020
The Federal Ministry of Budget and National Planning houses the above National Plan along with some tracking and scoring mechanisms.
Why then does it sometimes feel as though Nigeria is without a roadmap?

Is this Angola?

These Angolans were arrested one year ago after a book club meeting.
They remain in detention.

Here is the book, From Dictatorship to Democracy, by Gene Sharp. 
I, like thousands (millions) of people, read this book many years ago.
You can too.
What else do you know about Angola?  I know there's this very rich and pretty girl, the president's daughter or something, named Isabel dos Santos, and they speak Portuguese.  Here's more about the government and economy:

Stunting



Globally,
50 million children under 5 were wasted
of which 16 million were severely wasted
- WHO

One of every four children under five in the world today is stunted. 


https://www.nestlehealthykids.pk/kids-and-calorie-intake.php
All the wastin' and stuntin' ... no, we're not rapping about "substances" hehehe, we're talking about malnutrition: 
"The first 1,000 days – from the time a woman becomes pregnant to the second birthday of her child – is the most important period of individual human development. This is the time when the foundation for good physical growth is set, when the brain is developing most rapidly, when the immune system is strengthening. What happens in those 1,000 days determines to a large extent the course of a child’s life — his or her ability to grow, learn, work, succeed – and, by extension, the long-term health, stability and prosperity of the society in which that child lives."

It's all around us.  :(

June 12th 2016 ... Where is our holiday?

answer:

No June 12 holiday in Lagos, Ogun, Oyo - PUNCH

Who remembers June 12, 1993?
Here is some history.
Who remembers this campaign ad for SDP and MKO Abiola?


Who remembers what the other party was called?

Is June 12th usually a holiday?  What does it commemorate?
