Yoruba religion The Yorùbá religion comprises the traditional religious and spiritual concepts and practices of the Yorùbá people. Its homeland is in Southwestern Nigeria and the adjoining parts of Benin and Togo, a region that has come to be known as Yorùbáland. Yorùbá religion is formed of diverse traditions and has no single founder. It has influenced or given birth to a host of thriving ways of life such as Lucumí, Umbanda and Candomblé.[1] Yorùbá religious beliefs are part of Itan, the total complex of songs, histories, stories and other cultural concepts which make up the Yorùbá society.[1][2][3] Beliefs[edit] The Black SphereSinister Source Code in the Obamacare Program! - Iceweasel Day by day, wave after wave of Obamacare horrors are washing up on the American consciousness…one recent horror being a hidden source code within the ACA site.

A divination recital can take a whole night.

5 ways to motivate yourself to study a boring subject and/or complete a project ‘How do I get motivated to study?’ is one question I am constantly asked by students. Having just completed my honours thesis (which turned out to be the hardest, most stressful and rewarding project I have ever done) I am happy to say that there are many ways to motivate yourself, but it may involve some pain, frustration and overcoming mental barriers to begin with (at least this was the case for me!). Unfortunately, there are no quick and easy solutions to have you feeling totally inspired and energised about studying a subject or completing a project that may not be all that inspiring/interesting at times. Here are some of the things you can do to motivate yourself to get on with the work and study that needs doing. 1.

Stupid Easy Paleo - Easy Paleo Recipes - Iceweasel Once Upon A Time: Girl meets sugar at a young age. Girl falls in love with sugar. Becomes overweight. Struggles with diets. Is always hungry. Mali needs more than a call to arms My mind, frankly, was on anything but peace as I entered the United Nations conference hall to participate in a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence event. On that same day – 21 September 2012 – yet another UN resolution had been released on the crisis in Mali. I felt overwhelmed by the ponderousness of the UN machine. That the UN, in association with African political leaders, recognised the danger posed by fundamentalist aggression to the Sahel and west Africa was not in doubt. The sense of urgency, however, lagged so far behind my own that it was a marvel I did not invade the conference hall with a banner, screaming: TAKE BACK MALI – YESTERDAY!

Take college and university courses online completely free In recent years massive open online courses (MOOCs) have become a trend in online education. The term was coined in 2008 by David Cormier, manager of web communications and innovations at the University of Prince Edward Island. The first MOOC was created the previous year, at Utah State University.

Central African Republic Becoming Worse For Children By Carimah Townes on January 4, 2014 at 2:50 pm "Central African Republic Becoming Worse For Children" As deadly violence escalates in Central African Republic, child endangerment has reached an alarmingly high level. A Room Full Of Feminists Just Applauded A Guy Who Attacked Feminists. Wait For It… - Iceweasel At first I was like, "Where is this feminist vs. Taliban analogy going?" But then I was all like, "Oh, I see what you did there!" It takes a special kind of dude (like Joss Whedon, noted writer/director/creator of feminist characters) to hate on the word "feminist" in a way that doesn’t make me immediately want to light him on fire.

Real Life Legolas: Archer 'Rediscovers' Ancient Archery Techniques, Can Shoot Three Arrows In A Second This is a video of Danish archer Lars Anderson demonstrating the ancient archery techniques he's been practicing. The key to a lot of them is holding spare arrows in your hand instead of a quiver. Doing so, Lhars can shoot 10 arrows in 4.9 seconds, shoot 11 arrows before the first hits the ground, shoot through chainmail, shoot three arrows in less than a second while falling, and shoot three disks while running backwards in 1.12 seconds. I wish I was better at archery. I think the bow might actually be my favorite weapon if you don't count laser blasters or psychological warfare. Keep going for the worthwhile video, but feel free to skip around.

Africa Needs Gay Rights Like A Naked Man Needs A Hat The Pink Smokescreen Uganda is on the verge of enacting one of the toughest anti-gay laws in the world; it is part of a wider rouse to divert attention from the rampant corruption, lack of services, crime, and poverty that plague Uganda. Right on cue, President Obama condemned the law and said Uganda would pay the price of such foolhardy action. This allowed Museveni to grandstand in the name of national sovereignty and fighting the dictates of neo-colonialists trying to “impose their lifestyle on us.” The law is cruel and unusual in meting out excessive punishment to any person suspected of being gay, helping gays, failing to report gays and so forth. It is a totally unworkable piece of legislation, poorly written, contradictory, and too generalised – it is more a moral statement condemning homosexuality than a workable law.
