There are just a few things in the world that really gets me excited, and technology/electronics is one of them. I may not care much about whether I’m wearing a Sean John or driving a Porsche, but I do care on things that I use daily basis such as my phone.
Soccer has come a long way in the United States. I remember when I first moved to the United States, living in Philadelphia, PA. I couldn’t find a park with a soccer field, or kids playing soccer in the street. American Football and Baseball were dominating all kids gathering and I knew nothing about both sports.
I usually don’t like writing blog posts in response to current events, because I believe everyone needs time to think and reflect before speaking up (or in this case, writing) about any hot topics, because words are spoken and they will never be unspoken. Out of our mouth comes the power to give life and at the same time the power to take it away.
Until mankind can master traveling to the moon on a regular basis, human-led space exploration of any kind should not be recommended nor invested in. The closest celestial body to earth needs to be conquered first with such efficiency that even commercial travel to its orbit will become a routine activity.
Despite Colombia’s violent history, modern Bogota is energetic, artistic and wonderfully chaotic. This is a city that I’ve fallen in love with in the past years, after spending almost a year going back and forth for business. This city has put a vision in my heart on what most of African cities could become with the support of their local government leadership.
It’s Super Bowl Week-end, but for all of us “Real Football” lovers, especially Africans, we have other reasons to be excited about this week-end. The African Cup of Nations Quarter Finals kicks off today with Congo playing DR Congo, then Tunisia against the host country Equatorial Guinea. Yes, there will be drama, and there will be trash talks. But most of all, there will be unconditional passion and patriotic love display among the fans of each one of these countries that were able to make it to the Quarter Finals. This is Africa Pre-SuperBowl, because the CAN Final is yet to be played. An African Champion will rise among all this clashes.
