Imagine one group of rebels gets the $ reward for capturing another infamous rebel... Indeed it's a mercenary's game in the Great Lakes.

So then this success can't be attributed to AFRICOM or U.S. troops (and the millions being spent)?

Proving #Einstein's theories correct, decades later....
E=mc2 Albert Einstein proposed the most famous formula in physics in a 1905 paper on Special Relativity titled Does the inertia of an object depend upon its energy content? Essentially, the equation says that mass and energy are intimately related. Atom bombs and nuclear reactors are practical examples of the formula working [...]

Very surprising.. Perhaps a reflection of Europe s economy?

"A study published last year found that between 1995 and 2009 the use of antidepressants across Europe increased by almost 20 percent per year on average."

"Barack Obama, the most cerebral and eloquent American leader in a generation, regularly plays the same card, droppin’ his Gs and dialing down his vocabulary to Hee Haw standards.

His ability to convincingly play a hayseed was instrumental in his 2012 campaign against the patrician Mitt Romney; in one of their televised debates the President referenced “folks” 17 times.

An aversion to complexity—at least when communicating with the public—can also be seen in the types of answers politicians now provide the media. The average length of a sound bite by a presidential candidate in 1968 was 42.3 seconds. Two decades later, it was 9.8 seconds. Today, it’s just a touch over seven seconds and well on its way to being supplanted by 140-character Twitter bursts."

The United States is being overrun by a wave of anti-science, anti-intellectual thinking. Has the most important, powerful nation on Earth lost its mind?

Many Americans are expressing sympathy about the kidnapped Chibok girls. In daily conversations people don't expect my reply that there are worse situations occurring (South Sudan, mass killings in Nigeria by security forces and terrorists), and our attention to the BH videos actually helps them achieve their goals.

The reply to #BringBackOurGirls linked below aptly describes the folly of increased militarism African calamities conveniently stimulate...
Simple question. Are you Nigerian? Do you have constitutional rights accorded to Nigerians to participate in their democratic process? If not, I have news you. You can’t do anything about the girls missing in Nigeria. You can’t. Your insistence on urging American power, specifically American military power, to address this issue will ultimately hurt the …

Traffic citations in New York City have fallen by 94% - since police have started a work stoppage.

Is the current style of policing in the U.S. expensive and inefficient, or a good use of publicly-funded labor?

It's not your imagination — there is a new wave of African immigrants beginning to make their mark in Colorado.

#Ethiopia is the second most popular country of origin for immigrants after #Mexico.

(Have you seen the "Lagos Market" sign? Naija know no boundaries!)
The proof of a rising Colorado political bloc is on the ballot in November as Joe Neguse, son of Eritrean parents, runs for secretary of state, and Naquetta Ricks, born in Liberia, could join the University of Colorado Board of Regents.

"politicians love to eat the world over, but rarely do so many have to wait for so long, in such uncertainty, to find out if they’ve secured their seat at the table."

Interesting piece on #Malawi's drawn-out elections. #Africa

"In January 2012, President Goodluck Jonathan himself said that Boko Haram may have infiltrated the Nigerian government."

#Nigeria #Africa
On the night of 14 April, members of from the Islamist militant group Boko Haram attacked a secondary school in Chibok, Borno State and abducted more than 200 girls, most of whom are still being held. Some reports claim that Nigeria's military had advance warning of the attack but failed to act.

Some really surprising conversations are coming out of the #BringBackOurGirls push on #socialmedia.

This conversation (w/ colorful language) hinges on co-option and the damage it can do.
