Call off Meaningless Madaraka; Letter to the President

NationMirror

Mr President, I hope this finds you well and in good health.

Since six in the morning I have been at this small Mbila Market here in Makueni. On my old motorbike longing for a single passenger to come along. It’s 11am now and none has come.

My mouth is still bitter and dry. At home, my kids eagerly await their father to return home with a bite. They had to sleep hungry yesternight after askaris arrested me and demanded Ksh 2000 bribe.

I was left penniless. Helpless. Hopeless.

For the background, I bought this motorbike, courtesy to former President Mwai Kibaki for lowering the taxes. Then business was promising. Fuel was low. Passengers paid without much bargains. Profits were realized. Life was somehow tolerable unlike now.

Mr President, am so sorry should the grim and sordid contents of this letter mess up with your royal appetite today. But they…

YOUTHS IN BUSINESS

HOPE FOR YOUTHS
Youths are Jobless, youths are tarmacking, youths are getting hopeless.
A practical situation:
Last month, Tuskys Supermarket advertised for INTERNSHIP opening. Truth has it that they received 20,000+ applicants (Not for jobs, INTERNSHIP).

All these are jobless graduates with papers, where is the hope for the a little not advantaged to have that high education? Their hope is in hopelessness.

I think the time has come for our leaders and more so the youthful leaders and those with youths at heart to talk to youths about WORK not JOB. Encourage Self employment and entrepreneurship.

“In my capacity, I stand to talk of entrepreneurship, I commit to educate youths on ways of/to self employment, I promise to coach a few youths on entrepreneurship skill.”

BILLIONAIRES ARE SERIOUS BORROWERS

Borrowing money is their cup of tea and their signature. If you have never borrowed money, you will never lend money. And cant lend it if you don’t have it.

A bank is a broker between the poor and the rich. The only place where the two meet is in a bank. The poor brings the money and the rich takes it.

A poor person saves the money because they have more money than their thinking capacity. So they keep the money there so they can go and think what to do with it…

Rich people come to pick that money because they have many ideas than the money they have. So they come to pick that money to go implement those great ideas. Only poor people operate savings and fixed deposit accounts.

Fixed deposit accounts are for the living dead. People who undertake and commit that they will not think about any idea for that money until the expiry of that period of time, and that if they end up thinking and want that money, then they will be penalized.

Rich people operate current accounts. Therefore, a bank exists purposely for TWO reasons:

A) For the poor to bring in the money
B) For the rich to come and take it away

Banks make more money from borrowers than savers. Hence they respect the former.

FUTURE IN TECH

In a recent interview the MD of Daimler Benz (Mercedes Benz) said their competitors are no longer other car companies but Tesla (obvious), Google, Apple, Amazon .

Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years.

Uber is just a software tool, they don’t own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world

Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don’t own any properties.

Artificial Intelligence: Computers become exponentially better in understanding the world. This year, a computer beat the best Go player in the world, 10 years earlier than expected.

In the US, young lawyers already don’t get jobs. Because of IBM Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans.

So if you study law, stop immediately. There will be 90% less lawyers in the future, only specialists will remain.

Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, 4 times more accurate than human nurses. Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans. In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans.

Autonomous cars: In 2018 the first self driving cars will appear for the public. Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be disrupted. You don’t want to own a car anymore. You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location and drive you to your destination. You will not need to park it, you only pay for the driven distance and can be productive while driving. Our kids will never get a driver’s licence and will never own a car.

It will change the cities, because we will need 90-95% less cars for that. We can transform former parking spaces into parks. 1.2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide. We now have one accident every 60,000 miles (100,000 km), with autonomous driving that will drop to one accident in 6 million miles (10 million km). That will save a million lives each year.

Most car companies will probably become bankrupt. Traditional car companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels.

Many engineers from Volkswagen and Audi; are completely terrified of Tesla.

Insurance companies will have massive trouble because without accidents, the insurance will become 100x cheaper. Their car insurance business model will disappear.

Real estate will change. Because if you can work while you commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood.

Electric cars will become mainstream about 2020. Cities will be less noisy because all new cars will run on electricity. Electricity will become incredibly cheap and clean: Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you can now see the burgeoning impact.

Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil. Energy companies are desperately trying to limit access to the grid to prevent competition from home solar installations, but that can’t last. Technology will take care of that strategy.

With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water. Desalination of salt water now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter (@ 0.25 cents). We don’t have scarce water in most places, we only have scarce drinking water. Imagine what will be possible if anyone can have as much clean water as he wants, for nearly no cost.

Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this year. There are companies who will build a medical device (called the “Tricorder” from Star Trek) that works with your phone, which takes your retina scan, your blood sample and you breath into it.

It then analyses 54 biomarkers that will identify nearly any disease. It will be cheap, so in a few years everyone on this planet will have access to world class medical analysis, nearly for free. Goodbye, medical establishment.

3D printing: The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from $18,000 to $400 within 10 years. In the same time, it became 100 times faster. All major shoe companies have already started 3D printing shoes.

Some spare airplane parts are already 3D printed in remote airports. The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need for the large amount of spare parts they used to have in the past.

At the end of this year, new smart phones will have 3D scanning possibilities. You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoe at home.

In China, they already 3D printed and built a complete 6-storey office building. By 2027, 10% of everything that’s being produced will be 3D printed.

Business opportunities: If you think of a niche you want to go in, ask yourself: “in the future, do you think we will have that?” and if the answer is yes, how can you make that happen sooner?

If it doesn’t work with your phone, forget the idea. And any idea designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure in the 21st century.

Work: 70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years. There will be a lot of new jobs, but it is not clear if there will be enough new jobs in such a small time.

Agriculture: There will be a $100 agricultural robot in the future. Farmers in 3rd world countries can then become managers of their field instead of working all day on their fields.

Aeroponics will need much less water. The first Petri dish produced veal, is now available and will be cheaper than cow produced veal in 2018. Right now, 30% of all agricultural surfaces is used for cows. Imagine if we don’t need that space anymore. There are several startups who will bring insect protein to the market shortly. It contains more protein than meat. It will be labelled as “alternative protein source” (because most people still reject the idea of eating insects).

There is an app called “moodies” which can already tell in which mood you’re in. By 2020 there will be apps that can tell by your facial expressions, if you are lying. Imagine a political debate where it’s being displayed when they’re telling the truth and when they’re not.

Bitcoin may even become the default reserve currency … Of the world!

Longevity: Right now, the average life span increases by 3 months per year. Four years ago, the life span used to be 79 years, now it’s 80 years. The increase itself is increasing and by 2036, there will be more than one year increase per year. So we all might live for a long long time, probably way more than 100.

Education: The cheapest smart phones are already at $10 in Africa and Asia. By 2020, 70% of all humans will own a smart phone. That means, everyone has the same access to world class education.

Every child can use Khan academy for everything a child needs to learn at school in First World countries. There have already been releases of software in Indonesia and soon there will be releases in Arabic, Suaheli and Chinese this summer. I can see enormous potential if we give the English app for free, so that children in Africa and everywhere else can become fluent in English and that could happen within half a year.

Must read article on how our lives will change dramatically in 20 years by CEO of Mercedes

Rest Easily Myles Munroe

It was at 6:47am, a date like today, now three years ago.
The dawn broke as any other , things unfolded as usual until 13min to 7am.

I was in my shop and had just settled and set all the apparels for the day in place to keep my daily activities rolling.

The previous two weeks, I had read a book entitled #REDISCOVERING_FAITH. The very book had taught me a lot and indeed prepared for what I hadn’t known. The author of that very book had typically walked me the salvation, spiritual and professional journey from 2009 through. We had become so close and inseparable. So dear and unavoidable.

Things are set, the shop is tidy and the day is set. I tuned my radio to classic 105. Immediately after the song #Hallelujah by Alexander Burke, Miana Kageni the show host popped with the worst news ever, and this were his exact words, “THE PROMINENT AND PROFICIENT INTERNATIONAL PREACHER AND MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER DR.MYLES MUNROE IS DEAD.” Now this was the shortest horror movie was forced in to watching. I immediately found sat, profusely sweating and the next thing I remember doing , Closing the shop in uncontrollably typical tears.
It was the most expensive news I was forced into believing.

Today marks exactly 3years since your left.
You died yet alive.
You departure yet welcomed,
Thank God you LEFT EMPTY.
Keep resting easily my Mentor Dr. Myles Munroe. I love you so much and Death can’t take away My love for you.

Unthankful Visitor

How does it feel when you welcome a visitor to your condominium and suddenly, he/she keeps quiet, stops talking to/with your -the host, stops getting concerned with you? Yet they don’t want to leave…
You try to seduce them to talk, they are busy with their phone. Yes, you welcomed them nicely, but still they are not even concerned with you the host.
Right, they are taking the sweet juice and luscious meals you are serve, but still don’t seem to mind you hosting them. Apparently they are more concerned with their other friends. The ones they passed by as they came to your place..How am I supposed to feel, as the host?

THAT is exactly how God feels when you come to him with a divided mind. He wants to host you with all hospitality, serve you with the best of delicacies, but still you seem careful of other things.
He blesses you but still, you remember how you enjoyed life before you came to him.
He seduces you to talk and have a communication with Him, but you are not ready.

God is good and His Goodness is unmerited, but still, He needs your concentration in His goodness and your input in the friendship. He wants your full attention and that is what makes your relationship merry.

Feel implored

Money Mistake #4

Poor by choice

GIVE the needy, give to God

When you get an opportunity to meet a very wealthy person, never ask for money. Ask for ideas on how to make money. They may even choose to give you money on their own after seeing that your ideas are great, but let getting money from them never be your objective.

Marriage Secret #1

Everyone you marry has a weakness. Only God does not have a weakness. So if you focus on your spouse’s weakness you can’t get the best out of his strength.

When you get an opportunity to meet a very wealthy person, never ask for money. Ask for ideas on how to make money. They may even choose to give you money on their own after seeing that your ideas are great, but let getting money from them never be your objective.

Blessed are they who give to the needy.

Strange things we do in Africa in the name of “It’s Our Culture

Poor by choice

1. We care more for the dead than we do for the living!

2. We spend more to bury a person than we do to save their life.

3. We will not travel to go see a sick relative but will travel to bury him and/or her

4. People will rarely respect you while alive but will want to “pay their last respects” to your casket.

5. A person may NEVER receive roses in their entire life but they will get lots dumped on their graveyard!

6. We will spend a night at a neighbour’s funeral and it will be our first time to see the inside of their house!

7. No one gives a damn to know your village until you die and they will all fill car after car to “escort” your corpse to the same village

8. We will take the dead to the mosque/temple/church knowing fully well they had nothing to do with worship while alive.

9. We might not have granite tops in our kitchens but use the granite in the graveyard!

10. An entire village might not have a single house with cement floors but the only place with cement will be a graveyard!

We say how dear a person was to us after he died. When he is alive we do not tell him.

It is proposed we have “Cultural Reforms”. We have a culture of “hypocrisy”… a culture that is “Pro-death” and NOT “Pro-life!”
We need to value life BEFORE death…
