VIDEO: Raila RETURNS FIRE to Pres Uhuru, DEMANDS answers on EUROBOND, WARNS DP Ruto against ‘Juvenile’ THREATS

kenyapoa

Watch raw video – Prime Minister Raila Odinga returns fire to President Uhuru on Eurobond scandal.


1. Where is the Eurobond Cash? Government cannot account for 140billion

2. 140billion is not little cash, if pumped that into the economy, it will be felt, the construction industry will be vibrant- we see nothing. No major project funded by Eurobond is on progress?- where did the money go?

3. We are the official opposition, its our duty to put your government on toes. Government MUST be held accountable

4. Stop threats, you cant arrest a whistle blower- You cannot threaten me with imprisonment. I have been to serious jails like Kamiti.

5. Stop wasting time on Opposition, direct all your energy in your government, that is where architects and executors of mega corruption are.

6. Finally, DP William Ruto should stop abusive language, he should not abuse leaders raising legitimate concerns on…

“O brave new world, that has such people in it!”

A. J. MacDonald, Jr.

“O brave new world, that has such people in it!”

O wonder!

How many goodly creatures are there here!

How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world,

That has such people in’t. ~ William Shakespeare, “The Tempest” (Act V, Scene I, ll. 203–206)

“O brave new world,” he repeated. “O brave new world that has such people in it. Let’s start at once.” ~ Aldous Huxley, “Brave New World” (Chapter 8)

See: Brave New World – http://www.huxley.net/bnw/eight.html

See: Brave New World – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brave_New_World

“The title “Brave New World” is a quote from Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”. It is used by Huxley for several reasons. Firstly it allows him to connect the two stories together and highlights the issue of ‘civillisation’ vs. ‘savagery’ that dominates in both and also helps us to draw parallels between characters such as the savage Caliban in “The Tempest” and John the Savage in “Brave…

What happens when you get 1,200 anti-corruption activists in a room?

accountabilitylab

 iaccBy: Blair Glencorse, Executive Director

There was plenty of irony in the fact that Transparency International’s (TI) flagship meeting- the International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC)- took place in Malaysia last week during the largest ever protests against corruption in the country’s history. The Prime Minister perhaps sensibly stayed away from the meeting in the end, but Jose Ugaz, the President of TI, certainly wasn’t going to let him get away that easily, asking publicly in the opening session: “Who paid the money and why? Where did it go?”

Troubled Genders and Double Standards – “What Makes a Body Obscene?”

Sociological Images has commented on the recent cover of a magazine called Dossier. The image referred to depicts the up-and-coming male model Andrej Peijic who is famous for his androgynous fashion spreads and walking in fashion shows for women’s clothing. The cover image for Dossier takes the same line, presenting Pejic in a feminine hairdo and submissive pose while removing his shirt, which clearly reveals the naked chest of a young man. Or does it?

Apparently, the American book store Barnes & Noble wasn’t quite so sure, and “banned” the nudity from its customers’ eyes, meaning they [..] “bagged” the magazine, like they do pornographic ones, such that one can see the title of the magazine but the rest of the cover is hidden. Sociological Images points out that while nude chests of non-ambiguous cisgender men are completely acceptable on the magazine racks accessible to the…

COMICS REVIEW: THE KILLING JOKE

COMICS REVIEW: THE KILLING JOKE

Right Ear Left Blog

Martin Dupuis Killing Joke_1Brian Bolland did a wonderful job on the art but I don’t think it’s a very good book. It’s not saying anything very interesting.” – Alan Moore

It’s probably well known that John’s choice of colors turned out to be startlingly at odds with what I had in mind” – Brian Bolland

Context: Tim Burton’s Batman came out in 1989 and got lots of kids picking up comic books for the first time, me included. My dad brought me to a comic shop he had found during a lunch break and bought me The Greatest Joker Stories Ever Told (seen below). It had a cover by Brian Bolland, which looked great. But to my disappointment none of the art inside, which was all drawn by different cartoonists was as good as that cover. A few months later I saw The Killing Joke on the shelf, fully…

Batman Essentials: The Dark Knight Returns

Nothing But Comics

DKRIf you peaked to the best of your abilities would you know it? Would you realize it in hindsight? What would you do afterwards? I often think about this in regards to Frank Miller, a creator whose work I really admire from one point in his career and generally despise now both as an artists as well as in the general sense of being a human. But that doesn’t change the validity of his creations and with all that said when Miller was on he was able to work with a level of comic book alchemy that is still head and shoulders above anything else in the medium with his crowning achievement being The Dark Knight Returns; the greatest creation in the history of the comics. It takes all the things that only comics can do in a story and does them better, it redefines an entire superhero universe for the modern era, it satires it’s time but is…

Sexualized Saturdays: Bruce Wayne a.k.a Batman

Lady Geek Girl and Friends

Ah, Batman. If there was a prize for a character’s sexuality being questioned, Batman would win every year. This after all was the character that inspired The Ambiguously Gay Duo.

Bruce Wayne, also known as Batman, is well known as being a very typical archetype of the stoic brooding male figure. He’s a badass. He’s the Goddamned Batman! And maybe it’s because Batman is so cool that people are constantly asking questions about his sexuality.

The artists and writers were doing a decent job outing Batman themselves.

The first person to attempt to “out” Batman was Fredric Wertham, a psychiatrist who wrote a book called Seduction of the Innocent, and argued that Batman and Robin where homosexuals in a very homoerotic story and these stories were encouraging children to be gay… yeah. (He also accused Wonder Woman of being a lesbian, because a strong woman that doesn’t…
