About biko

A story monger; keen to pick on the details as he goes about it all. He finds fun in making the written feel like it was just spoken. So to say sarcasm and reality often race in between his lines, one slightly outrunning the other - pick your take.

Growing up with Mathematics

I remember my little brother complementing on my math work with nostalgia. There was always a contention between the math signs we used.
Being a class lower, he insisted on me writing the addition sign + wrongly in my multiplication sums where I used * sign. In his reasoning, I had inversed the addition sign. It became interesting whenever he got my book, and rush to our mother, being a primary teacher then; screaming the discormforts. “Mama see how Biko is so stupid to write the plus sign wrongly! He deserves a stroke mother, doesn’t he?” The whole house would then be in a laughter frenzy.
The smart guru would then proudly work to my table and correct the sign at my face! The witty knight gets the crown!
The memory of this moment always make my ribs crack  owing to the fact I ever doubt my answers in a Math Test!

What holds my future?

Growing up as a child, so many carreer opportuniyies were displayed before me without even my knowing. Those before me knew, however,  how much following such activities like music, athletics and drama would benefit my future. Probably they did not know as well. Ignorance is the reason for human destruction I believe.
I remember not taking co-curriculum activities seriously because the exposure, I suppose, was limited. I could be nostalgic about my childhood development but I ain’t regreting for not taking part in those activities; I had equally much effort in bookwork that has also in a sense made me accomplish a lot in life. On my side, I was drilled to believe that my life lied in the books and it was only through study that I would be able to realise it. However, having grown up I stand to oppose this notion. Our future lies at our childhood exposures.
We can actually realise our future right from early child trauning. I consider some of my friends that were so talented in music but were never natured. In fact the talent was lost in books. The few who were determined to nature their talents were seen as losers, and we were also made to believe so.
Currently, the individuals have greatly developed themselves; money and influence can legally be there second names. The akward thing is the frequent comments a friend may whisper to you,” You know I shared a class with that athlete who recently won gold and 10M in the London cross-country marathon?” This is envy at display.

Media Confrontation Harms the Nation

The media is a voice of the people by the people and for the people.

Therefore impedimg its actions limits the government’s access to the sincere needs of the people. Consequently, the people also have a barrier in accessing truth from the government. The superior individual thus has to force false self manipulated information to circulate in the public domain at the expense of credibility and trust from the people.
Can such an entity progress? Tell me those lying in governance. Are you serious that you want to lead us this in this manner?
I think you have missed the point by understimating our intelligence all this while.

Frustating the media frustates the whole nation

The media in its service to the public acts as the government’s watchdog. In most countries where freedom.of speech is under so much restrictions it is the media that becomes the
spokesperson” of the citizens. Unfortunately it is so in most of the African countries as well as worldwide although it is much common in the former. The funny thing is that the “dog” is never allowed to watch much thus its service is curtailed oftenly through threats freebies and even shutting down of press houses. This was observed in Uganda. The recent appeal by Mr. Kimaiyo for the press to spare on what it reveals with relation to the Westgate Attack. Apparently the government feel threatened that its security sources ain’t reliable including its intelligent sources! The terrorists had been presumed to be 15 with 5 killed and 11 also presumed to have perished at the collapse of the building. This was replaced by a factual account by the press that the attackers were only 4! Imagine the degree of fooling here! So I ask was the plead sympathetic or desperate? If it were poetry I think it would be In a sympathetic tone bearing in mind the context of the plead. This is is just an additive to these occurrences.
It is however important to realise that such threats and actions to interfere with the activities of the media not only hinders its progress but also of the entire nation.
Let us get the bigger picture. When the government and its stakeholders hides things or details of occurences from the media, the details are actually being hidden from the public: their people whom they serve. Here is where mistrust ensues and we watch ourselves fall. A house can’t stand if the insiders have mistrust among them. It is morover painful to observe a decades work scrumble in that dirt as well. Someone somewhere is cursing this people and actually in fury now when his or her work to liberate the media is downtrotten and instead of a more valuable information to the public, self interested rubbish is dished out.
The media speaks of the people and for the people. The Heroic definition of Democracy fits here so well: a government of the people by the people and for the people. Thus

the media is a voice of the people by the people and for the people.

Impeding the media actions gives a lot of cover to ills such as corruption, favouritism, misuse of funds, just but to mention a few of the common viles.
Well the government is playing old school here. I pray they remain ignorant of our new media: the internet. Or are they already? Even if they were the contents here circulate at light speed and it is impossible to contr traffic.
For all the common mwananchi with limited access to internet, they should be granted access to a free independent media.
There is fact that is maybe not drilled properly in the government’s brain ideology; the media links you to your people. Having it free alllows you to get individual opinions of the citizens which are more benefitial than having a general manipulated opinion. Do the math.

Internet media is the best promotion tool

Yes advertising is revolutionising the corporate market in a way that every organisation now must rely on it alongside public relation for awareness.
This does not leave government parastatals and politicians aside. Advertising can as well be a forum for making the consumers and the public aware of policies and ideas.

Poetry; A thriving river within my soul.

Poetry flows within me as it is among men of words and tastes so profound. It has no limits or rules. A boundless field it is to the minds and souls so creative.
Alas! by intuition this virtue thrives in the souls of men and women who by their careful and witty selection of words have their works so beautifully defined.
It’s no wonder I wade in it its streams. Am no wallower in the depths ashallow.
My knees and torso fully deeped, I yern for a time that’ll be fully ermersed in this Paradise.

Communication rates up

Communication can be defined as the process of relaying information to anotehr source. This blog gives a brief insight to the significant role this process has achived in human history.

This is a complex process that is best undestood when it is analysed wth reference to the industrial sectors that it is dépendent. The telecommunication engineers have their own definition and understanding of communication, so do the teachers, journalists and doctors. Every profession defines it in a unique way. The understanding of communication however in each of those professions is fascinating with the fact it plays a very vital role in the key areasof  its application.

The esssence of communication is preruquisite to ignore. The foundations of the world are built upon it. The simplest most contemporary example is when you want something from a friend you communicate to them your need for a favour or a helping hand. They understand that you need help because you communicated about it.

This significance of communication is even evident in our body functionality. We feel pain when pricked with a pin because of the interconnection between the synapses that relay signals thus communicating the feeling (signal) as pain to the Central Nervous System. It is as complex as communication itself. Body physiology explains this process in a more interesting and elaborate way.

Communication rating in terms of significance is not easy. It has grown eminently and it is an “evolving industry.” This is not just in terms of the mind blowing and vast technological innovations in communication gadgets like mobile phones, laptops, computers or satellites.

A key insight in the evolution of communication is by far deeper than this. Insights where communication is used as a tool for diplomacy and problem solving gives the evidence of the much value communication has to the society; nationwide and globally. Theories from Scholars like Socrates during the Medieval Period sentised this significance. It is from these theories that communication has grown from  poetry, music, oratory to the present negotiations between countries and states.

Communication when viewed as a field that unites all the element s of the world together gives a significant insight to the dependence the earth holds to this much despised field. The entire eathl communicates with itself. Every sound and signal made by creatures of the earth sends a signal to another receptive creature. For instance the communication between insects and birds during th mating period. Can one fathom how a gazelle gets a amte and how the sea creatures mate as well? Only organisms of such species understand that.

This is also significant with reference to manipulatio of machie operations in Physics where machines are given instructions to perform tasks, graphs are drawn and verified as a result of the interelation between figures. Moreover In Chemistry where atoms bond comunication network betweenth eatoms is represented in the form of ionic energies and in Biology where body fluids and nerve impuses are transfered and transmitted within the body frameworks communication channel in the form of body organs are vital.

Communication whether viewed in what perspective still gives significance to the world. However a small section of an entire proce It is the reponsibilty of every individual to value this field that is incorporated in every other field.
