Foreigners Thinks Nigerians Are Odd

But Please what is Odd in this

They cook with Red Oil!

RED-OIL

Foreigners believe we cook most of our meals with red oil (Palm oil).  I met Cheng in China Town, Ojota and he expressed how he felt about eating food made with red oil.  He said, “even though it was dreadful for me the first time I ate Egusi soup made with palm oil, I will never forget the delicious taste and aroma; now I eat Naija soups like a Nigerian”.

If you haven’t tasted soups or moi moi made with palm oil, cooked beans made with palm oil, you are seriously missing. These meals are utterly delicious!

So what is Odd about That…. Free us Joor

IT WAS A GENOCIDE “For the dead and the living, we must bear witness.”

wildebeest-2  “Genocide is the responsibility of the entire world.”

 

 

“My people are few. They resemble the scattering trees of a storm-swept plain…There was a time when our people covered the land as the waves of a wind-ruffled sea cover its shell-paved floor, but that time long since passed away with the greatness of tribes that are now but a mournful memory.”

 

“It is not what you can do for your country, but what you can do for all of mankind.”

How will we deal with grief and the loss of a loved one?

Imagine yourself sitting on the deck of a beautiful white yacht, the sun shining its warm rays on your skin and the wind filling the sails speeding you along a beautiful deep blue ocean. You are watching dolphins playing nearby. They jump out of the water one after another, they spin gracefully through the air in an arc before diving back into the sea.

The arc is not unlike the cycle of life and death for human beings. We appear in this world like the dolphin jumping out of the water, visible for a short time. Before long, we return to mother nature like the dolphin diving back into the ocean, to complete the circle of life that began there.

When a dolphin disappears beneath the waves, we feel no need to grieve because we know it is…

Snowden can stay in Russia for the next 3 years, government decides

NO Comment!

Russia has granted Edward Snowden a 3-year residency permit, after his temporary asylum expired. That means the NSA leaker can stay in Russia, where he has been stranded since the U.S. cancelled his passport a year ago while he was in transit to Latin America.

Activists across Europe have been pleading for their countries to let Snowden in to give testimony about mass surveillance in person, but not one government has agreed to do so, even those that have launched official inquiries over his revelations.

According to RT, Snowden’s lawyer said on Thursday that the leaker hadn’t applied for political asylum. He said Snowden would be able to apply for Russian citizenship in 5 years, and that in the meantime he is free to travel outside Russia for up to 3 months at a time.

It’s good for Snowden that he isn’t going to be forced to return to…

Soldiers could spend the majority of their deployments in the trenches. Here, a soldier receives a haircut from a barber on the Albanian front. 

 

In honour of World War I’s centennial this year, The Open University has “colourized” a sample of select photos from the conflict with the help of a photograph restoration expert. 

 

The photos, which were originally in black and white, feel jarringly current when colourized. World War I began 100 years ago, but these photos remind us one of the worst and seemingly most inexplicable conflicts in history isn’t quite as far off as it might seem.

 

The conflict, which killed over nine million people and affected almost ever corner of the globe, began on July 28, 1914. Thought of as the “war to end all wars,” World War I marked a number of firsts in military conflict, including the use of planes, tanks, and chemical weapons. 

Trenches provided no protection against the deployment of chemical weapons. Here, a Canadian soldier poses with his horse while wearing a gas mask at the Canadian Army Veterinary Corps Headquarters.

World War I was truly a global conflict. These soldiers were members of the 1st Australian Imperial Force, and are pictured here at a military base in their home country. 5-australian-imperial-force-ww1-colour
