Everyone is talking on social media about Kabuura and Flavia. Almost everyone except Kabuura and Flavia.
This country is weird
I propose that political parties nominate candidates for speakership and then we ugandans can use an SMS portal(a version with moves like U-report) or something better for citizens to vote the speaker. That way, people will hurt less. Coz the speaker is for the country and most citizens don't even trust their mps to vote minus envelopes. A speaker won't bribe the whole country I guess.
Same should apply to chief justice and since all advocates have smart phones , an app can be made to allow only lawyers with pcs to vote.
Ovcos with more technology comes hacking. But I'm speaking my mind. Speak yours
Just because you have the power and means doesn’t mean you abuse humanity.
We matter too.
Don't get stuck when private cars are allowed back on the road. Download SafariShare from play store and make extra cash from those empty seats. Let's facilitate your travels!
SafariShare is a platform for people keen on travelling safely, affordably & conveniently. We provide that ‘homely’ comfort that public transport cannot while offering an opportunity for drivers to make extra cash to cover their fuel costs.
Who is SafariShare for?
Drivers travelling with extra seats can make money by inviting people taking the same route to share the trip.
How it works:
All a driver needs to do is post their trip so that someone who wishes to travel the same route can contact them and share the trip at a reasonable cost – similar to public transport!
Similarly, anyone who wishes to travel can search for trips along their route and choose between various drivers travelling at different times. A traveller can immediately get in touch with a driver they have matched with.
The SafariShare app is available for download on Google Playstore. Search as one word "SafariShare", register, get approved and cut down on your travel expenses.
At SafariShare, we value the lives of our drivers and passengers. We ensure that our users are not targeted for any form of criminality or injury on and off our platform.
We take the strongest actions toward ensuring user safety through;
1. Legally recognised identification documents are required to register as a driver or passenger
2. Panic button in the app itself that provides real-time security alerts to the SafariShare team (still under development)
3. Live location sharing with friends and family

English Lessons For Today!
Topic: Essay Writing!
A good way to approach an essay is to envision it as a Five Part project. An essay is made up of the Introduction, Three main points (the body), and the Conclusion. So it looks like this:
2. Point One
3. Point Two
4. Point Three
Of course depending on the length and breadth of your paper you may have more than three main points. However by using this structure it will make envisioning your paper easier.
An Introduction should answer three questions
1. What am I talking about in this paper?
By answering this question you let the reader know what the subject of the paper is. For example, if your paper were about a particular book, your answer to this question would give the title, author, and any other necessary information.
2. How am I going to talk about it?
This is where you let the reader know how your paper is organized. Here you very briefly introduce your main points or the evidence that will prove your point.
3. What am I going to prove in this paper?
This is the dreaded THESIS STATEMENT. The thesis is usually the last sentence in the first paragraph and it clearly states the argument or point you are making in your paper.
The Body consists of everything between your intro and conclusion and it is where you discuss your three main points. A good starting place is to envision that each point is a separate paragraph (or in a long paper each point might be a section). In each paragraph you:
· Introduce your point
· Explain your point
· Give supporting evidence (this is where quotes go!)
· Explain how the point and evidence relate to your thesis
The whole point of each paragraph is to relate your point to your thesis, but it helps to spell it out clearly in at least one sentence of the paragraph.
Basically, the conclusion restates the introduction. So just reiterate questions 1, 2, and 3. It is also helpful to trace y.
Happiness does not start when ‘this, that or the other’ thing is resolved. Happiness is what happens now, when you make the best of what you have.
25 LITTLE STORIES FROM THE UNKNOWN MAN
1. Once upon a time I met a man who told me that telling the truth and making someone cry, is better than telling a lie and making someone smile and happy.
2. He said to me your true friends are those who will never avoid you just because they have met new friends.
3. As he kept on speaking to me, he said If some people do not appreciate and value my presence, I should work hard to make them value and appreciate my absence.
4. He said I must not be angry with anyone who is quiet on me because there must be a reason why they are quiet, and that I will get to know the reason later.
5. He told me it is always better to be a blessing to others at all times than to be a burden at all times.
6. He said I must learn to forgive others not because they deserve it but because I deserve the peace that comes with forgiveness.
7. I must know that everyone deserves a second chance and many more chances if they ask for forgiveness, but I must not loose my guard over their intentions.
8. I must not only talk to people in my free time, but I must free my time to talk to people.
9. I must know that the truth may hurt for a little while, but a lie will hurt for a long time.
10. I must learn to value and respect people who tell you the Truth no matter how painful the truth is.
11. I must make my decisions when I am in the right mood, not when I am angry, likewise I must not make promises when I am excited with high emotions.
12. I must know that some people are like candles that burn themselves to give light to others. I should not have regrets if I happen to be one of such candles.
13. I must learn to be a caring friend because it is a thousand times better than a careless lover.
14. I should value and protect my relationships of many years of investments because they are like a book that takes years to write but can get burnt only within few seconds.
15. He specifically said this repeatedly that If have a problem with someone, I should go tell the person and not go tell the world.
16. He said to me that I should know that nobody is too busy, it is just a matter of their priorities within a day.
17. He said to me that people can trust you when you are consistent with what you say and what you do.
18. He said with a low voice, only God can be totally trusted. Trust God 100%.
19. He then said no matter what, I must not forget those who helped and stood by me in my time of trials and during my difficult times.
20. I must always remember those who turned their backs on me in my difficult times of trials. Not for vengeance, but for the lesson of life.
21. I must be careful with those who put me into difficult times but I must never hate them. It is a lesson of life.
22. He said again I must be grateful at all times to God for this life and for living. It is a privilege and not a right.
23. As he was leaving me, he said, always remember how temporary this world is, I must always be conscious of the reality of eternity with God in heaven or with Satan in hell fire.
24. He smiled and left waving me for a long time. Who must this man be?
25. What he told me may be useful to you.
Just like cops and doctors, after a long time in practice, a lawyer can see the signs...see the "symptoms" and figure out the deduction
"My kid's dad is fake. He never pays for anything. I have to do everything myself. Men only want me for s*x and they're not interested in a relationship because of my kids. I haven't got a car and I need money for the kid's school uniforms..."
Never again will I ask a waitress for the wine list
What are some of the unknown facts that are true?
1. The dates 4/4, 6/6, 8/8, 10/10, and 12/12 all fall on the same day of the week during any one year.
They're called , which are part of an algorithm designed to tell you the day of the week that any date of the year falls on.
2. In 1938, Adolf Hi**er was Time magazine's OF THE YEAR and in 1939, he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
World War II began in 1939.
This sound familiar in Uganda?
3. There are no clocks in Las Vegas casinos.(The reason? To get you to lose track of time and keep gambling all of your cash away.)
4. Some people claim an Episode of Johnny Bravo cartoon predicted 9/11.,
In this scene from a Johnny Bravo episode that aired on the Cartoon Network on April 27, 2001, a movie poster appears to show a burning tower emitting a smoke cloud with the ominous words "COMING SOON."
5.Caligula, the emperor of Rome from 37 to 41 CE, ordered his troops to go to war with the sea.
Never known for his rational sense of mind, he made them bring back seashells as "plunders of war," indicative of his triumphant victory against Neptune.
6.The national anthem of Greece has 158 stanzas
7.The word "facetiously" contains all five vowels and "y" in alphabetical order.
8.Dragonflies have shovels shaped pen*ses so they can scoop out their rivals' s***m. Hilarious... Dragon power😂

In this season of rain when you see two animals moving in the same direction just follow them, they might be heading to Noah's ark.
Can you imagine what George Washington, the first President of the United States, would think if a time machine were to bring him to the present?
He'd probably be pleased to learn the blacks had been freed, but unhappy they hadn't been sent back to Africa. He'd be pleasantly surprised that women had the vote, that one had run for President, but like most of the rest of the nation, he wouldn't be enamoured by Hillary Clinton.
He'd be pleased that education was long universal, including for women, but he'd be bemused that so many women learned rubbish like gender studies.
He'd be amazed to learn about his white privilege and his male privilege considering the struggle he underwent when the Colonies revolted against Britain.
And amazed as he would be by modern technology from trains, planes, television and the Internet, he would be even more amazed that America had voted in a black president twice, and that the current incumbent of the White House communicated to the people by tweeting like a bird, and that men married other men without being hanged for it.
How hard is Law School! Pretty hard.
Remember how you used to surpass all your classmates, back in High school, and get all sorts of accolades? Well, guess what? — all the other star students are now your competitors in law school, and the competition runs between stiff and savage.
True Story — my first year at UCU, I joined a study group. NO ONE can do all the reading assigned and/or otherwise necessary to do well in each and every one of your classes. That’s deliberate. The school engages in social Darwinism and hates first year law students with a passion. What have you ever done to deserve one of these rare slots, at this, the gateway to one of the most demanding and prestigious fields of endeavor known to the human race. [In truth, law school is none of those things, but you won’t learn that until the last half of your third year…] But, anyway, you get my drift.
Your fellow students are all in the same boat as you, and logic suggests that if you pool together and work as a team, your individual result is likely to be better than if you go it alone.
BIG MISTAKE, kiddo. What happened to my small study group was that we divided the course into ten parts, and each one of our ten students was going to be responsible for reading his (there were no women) part, outlining it, and handing over the notes two weeks prior to the year long course’s final exam. All clear? I did my part, as did the fellow who lived a couple of doors down the hall from me in our rathole apartment building. Then came the BIG DAY to exchange notes. Five of us turned in the whole outline of our part of the course. Two muttered excuses, and finally coughed up a few pages, a week late. And the others, after grabbing our outines, blew us off completely. Suckers!!!
You see, my child, law school breeds not only stiff competition but savage survival at any cost, win at any cost, type thinking.
Those of us who had been bilked had no recourse but to work like demons to blitz read our way through all the secondary sources (things called Pamphlets, back then) and hope for the best. After all, our particular exam only lasted three hours — so, how much depth could "You Know Who" (to borrow a famous character’s name from the movies!) put into that time slot?
But then again, having to go into overdrive on one course did not exactly help us out in studying for the other courses, so the damage was done to each one of us — a nice bonus for our competitors’ chances....it's a war out there.
“Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord.” But sometimes, we get a chance to help Him out. It was odd, but as the years wore on, those ever so smart wise guys who had betrayed us all, and even those who just didn’t do their fair share although they made a pass at doing ‘something,’ all of them had their days of reckoning. It was subtle, but major research source materials disappeared from their bags. Repeatedly. Almost completed papers that were due under stringent deadlines got erased from the primitive memory computers and laptops of the day… Interview times with firms offering the juicy summer law clerk positions got mixed up — One fellow’s letter of recommendation from his favorite lecturer got “lost” in the secretarial pool at Matovu's For two weeks, until after the deadline for applying for clerkships had passed. [And no, I didn’t personally do any of those bad things to any of the culprits… for as Sun Tzu says, the wise man but has to sit by the river long enough and he will see the dead bodies of his enemies float by.]
IF you want Four years of this, where you will always be the dullest person at every party (because you are constantly checking your watch out of fear of being away from your studies for too long — “the law is a jealous mistress” and all that), then sign right up. Learn how to survive on just a few hours’ sleep, bad food, and bathing every third day whether you need to or not. [Lest anyone think this is an exaggeration, the last comment perfectly describes the fellow who graduated no. 1 in our law school class… not a bad person per se, either… everything he achieved was through dint of outworking everybody else in the school….]
If you want that for your next Four years, law school is for you.
But what if your vision is to be a noble social justice warrior, righting the world’s wrongs, as you ride in to court to dazzle Justice Pooh?
Well — time for another reality check, kiddo. First of all, unless your name happens to be Plato or Aristotle, you ain’t that person. At best, you have a second class mind, like the rest of us in the profession. You will wind up adopting some political hack’s talking points as your great “truth,” and when you ride in to court, you will be sliced into small pieces by the real pros, those who actually know what they are doing because they have been there, learning all the tricks for years and years. Can you become one of them? — one of the real gun slingers? No. You are not good enough. Odds are, even after 20 years wasted trying to be good enough, you will be a second rater. Very few gunslingers survive long enough to become consultants and the odds are against you. Way against you. By the time you figure that out, you will have wasted your professional life and join the ranks of burned out lawyers who suffer from alcoholism, drug abuse, and divorce. [Our record in those areas is abysmal, by the way.]
Each year, the Bar loses as many veteran lawyers who quit us to go on to something else… anything else, in many cases… as we get new lawyers coming in to fill the ranks.
Is that what you really want to do?
Or, maybe you think you’ll be a hotshot deal maker, working in corporate mergers, or in IPO stock offerings. Well… good luck. I mean it — good luck. A high school football player’s chances of playing in the Express Villa for a ten year career, and a Super man ring, are better than yours. Why? — because that’s how few of these slots are open. So, good luck.
STILL want to go to law school? — and become a lawyer?
Well, I tried my best to talk you out of it, kid. So, welcome aboard. Apply to law school. Go WAY into debt, with no realistic way to pay it back. Go out into a savage job market, where any law job… anything at all… is hard to find. And then, experience your moment of terror.
What is your moment of terror? Somewhere out there, there is some poor soul who has a legal problem. To him/her, that problem is the biggest issue in the world. Your job is to guide this poor lost soul through the torments, and get them to some safe harbor, the best the law allows under this particular situation. It is a humbling feeling, and a terrifying one. YOU are the only thing that stands between your client and……………… well, something awful.
That’s what we lawyers really do.
For now I won't even mention the Law Development Center.

Apparently a senior citizen was advised as thus,
"If you are trying to amend the Constitution to remove age limit and the citizens are up in arms, don't you worry- more so if you have a population that is not very analytical! Just bring in another amendment allowing MPs to extend their terms by two years. The citizens will be more angry about the extension of two years and forget about the age limit. They will say "Both amendments are bad, but the extension of MPs' terms is worse." In other-words, the citizens will cease to care about you, and see the MPs as their real problem. You will hear them start to say "I don't have a big problem with the age limit. But I swear those MPs are selfish!!" Therefore, when court finally nullifies the extension of two years, many citizens will celebrate, thinking they have won. Some will celebrate the independence of the courts. They will eagerly wait to show their anger to the MPs at the ballot in 2021! In any case they will falsely hope that they can remove you too by election in 2021. That is how you manage or control their expectations. Thus the 49th Law of Power becomes - When you bring something bad and your people are unhappy about it, just add something worse. After their outcry, remove the worse thing and people will celebrate.
Do this also for things like taxes. If you want a 0.5% tax on mobile money, don't just bring it like that. First bring it as 1%. When the citizens complain, reduce it to 0.5% and blame the MPs for not thinking about the people. You'll be celebrated as a savior. That's how you achieve your objectives- if you study your people, and realise that they are devoid of analysis!" Bangyenzi, this country needs a super intercession in all our local languages n tongues...eh!
This is an interesting one. I absolutely love the quality of it...the incredible colours, the yellow on blue, and so forth. But the quotation is a great one if people give it a chance.
Sidenote: I'm shocked I left out the attribution. It's by Henry George Bohn.
Anyway, it saddens me to no end that the vast majority of quality sayings by philosophers & thinkers go unnoticed, in favour of more trendy tripe.
That might be a bit harsh, or maybe I'm reading the wrong books.
I'd enjoy hearing if I'm not the only one who thinks that way
A few years ago Barack Obama was having dinner with the queen of uk.
He said, ‘I want to be king’, to which her majesty replied ‘Barack, you need a kingdom to be a king’
Well, said the wog, ‘a prince then’
‘No’, replied her maj, ‘you’ll need to have a principality to be a prince.’
She continued, ‘you do have a nice country though.’
It doesn't matter if you are the best in the training... What matters is if you are the first in the race
Whenever I explain the science behind something in nature that is beautiful, I will sometimes have someone say “Thanks for ruining it for me. That takes all the mystery and beauty out of it.”
If you have ever said anything like that, I hate you a little.
I despise that phrase and anything even remotely like it. It is a proclamation of willful ignorance and that is something I simply can not respect.
I was hanging out with a group of friends once and one was commenting on the beautiful colors of the sunset. Someone else said that they wondered how the color changes so much as the sunset progresses.
Sooo… I jumped on the chance to drop a little knowledge. I started talking about refraction of light, atmospheric conditions, etc. The person who was curious listened intently and was fascinated.
The first person, though. They got mad at me. They said that they couldn’t see sunsets as beautiful anymore because now they knew it was all just sciency stuff happening. They got up and left in a huff.
What the .....?
Not sorry in the least for this, but I find it incredibly stupid that someone’s perception of beauty could be based on abject ignorance.
No, scratch that. I find it disgusting that someone would think that way. It is abhorrent to me that someone would choose to remain ignorant of something they enjoy because that knowledge would ruin it for them
Lemme just drop this here
Woes of living in a one room:
You enter the room(home) so tired after a long day. Drop the keys on the chair by the door, but the bag next to the door, remove the watch and wallet and put them next to the keys-on the chair.
You run and turn on the switch and play capital FM to soothe you. You remove the suit and hang it in the closet. Put the shirt and vest in the "bucket". Then you lock the door and relax on the bed.
You wake up few minutes later and dress up. Turn on TV/laptop and find something to watch. By 6:30pm you slept off and wake at 7:00pm.
You realise your room is kinda (disorganized). You prepare supper, and as it cooks up, you remove things from the chair to their right places. You go for a shower and come back for supper.
Then u lie on the bed again. Looking around the room, you see your :sitting room, kitchen, bedroom, closet(wardrobe) and also the dining. Then you smile and thank God.
You realise that the next day is a busy day and you may wale late. So you get the bag, organise it with all you want, since you iron on weekends, all is ready so you decide to choose what to wear when you wake. You Polish your shoes and place your wallet, watch , cufflinks and all you may need near your bedrest.
And then you watch movies till 2:00a.m as you enjoy social media. You sleep off minus knowing and realising.
At around 4:00a.m, you wake and find you slept off. You turn off the lights, reduce the volume and play music.
Then at 5:30a.m the alarm wakes you. You snooze it. For the next 30 minutes, you are woken in vain by it around 3/4/5 times. At around 6:00a.m, you jerk up. Go and shower, dress up and by 7:35, you are heading to a taxi. At 8:00a.m you are either at work or in jam.
At 9:00, they find you at work and it's a new day at work.
Flights from Havana to Entebbe International Airport cost roughly $2,000 - the cost of bringing 200 Cuban doctors would be around $400,000 which is about UGX1.4bn without their accommodation, logistics and food. How is this cost effective again?

One simple suggestion....
There are thousands of people who live their entire lives on the default settings, never realizing they can customize everything. – Don’t settle for the default settings in life. Find your loves, your talents, your passions, and embrace them. Don’t hide behind other people’s decisions. Don’t let others tell you what you want. Design YOUR journey every step of the way! The life you create from doing something that moves you is far better than the life you get from sitting around wishing you were doing it.
To my mind--such as it is--kindness is the only thing which really matters; I want to be kind.
I am a simple and an honest man, and I want to be remembered as a kind man too
Ushering in the weekend.... Closing up the week
