Bright lights, black magic: Contemporary HK Lore

ilbonito blog 2007

After a mad run in the last few weeks, Hong Kong’s stock market is bracing for a crash landing – all the moreso now that a certain TV series, widely considered to be an infallible omen for a bear market, has popped up again on repeat. In the perfect synergy of Hong Kong’s obsessions with money, celebrity and, err, feng shui, the 90s stockmarket drama “Greed of Man” is believed to herald a downturn on the city’s bourse every time it appears. Wikipedia explains:

“The Ting Hai effect, also known as the Adam Cheng effect, is a stock market phenomenon in which there is a sudden and unexplained drop in the stock market whenever a film or a television series starring Hong Kong actor Adam Cheng is released.[2] It still remains as a popular topic among stock brokers, years after the television drama The Greed of Man was…

Monsanto creeps into Europe via Ukraine, Covert War on European Food Security


Monsanto’s Covert War on European Food Security

Working quietly on the back of political turmoil driven by Western special interests (including itself) Monsanto has begun literally planting the seeds of genetically modified organisms’ spread throughout Europe, starting in Ukraine and working westward toward the European Union thanks to a slowly but surely softening by regulators regarding GMOs, despite their widespread unpopularity.

Mzungu Mama

To all the ladies who have ever loved a child, given care, sacrificed to make a difference in the life of a child, I thank God for you. When God created Kirabo Seeds, he didn’t choose an experienced business leader to develop the vision, he chose a MOTHER.

It is my absolute privilege and honor to mother the Kirabo Seeds children along with the five he’s placed in my daily life.

And thanks also to all the ladies God has placed in my life to mother me in your meaningful and impactful ways. In Uganda parenting is a community activity not a possessive position.

Reflections from the past

Reflections from the past

Stepping back from rushing forward gives us the chance to examine one or two reflections from the past. Whether we feel particularly connected to our heritage or not is irrelevant to the issue here. We present ourselves today as an accumulation of experiences making up our history.

Reflections from the past may be found in the actions of today if looked for, in addition to the intention providing energy for their initial creation yesterday. On occasions our behaviour and attitudes are reflections from the past, results of how our life had been lived until then.

Looking at reflections from the past, in the form of achievements from yesterday, we can derive encouragement to go out and be our best for the sake of leaving a legacy of today tomorrow, if we so choose.

We might not be inspired to construct imposing buildings, for example, but in our own…
