  1. <cite> @NGONGE said:</cite> Today is the second days of Eid and as is my habit in all happy occassions, I always look back on older days and places (like the poet) and remember people I liked, places I've missed and memories I loved. Eid Mubarak all, Ngonge, it seems our old age has relegated us to drop by every once in a while to see if the good old days have made a retro comeback. Nope, nothing to see here, no famous old names and familar avatars. But like myself, I assume, we all check in every now and again. Maybe we should start a "retired nomads" thread.
  2. This week marks the fifth anniversary of the arrest of Bernard Madoff, mastermind of the most notorious Ponzi scheme in history. He was arrested on Dec. 11, 2008 for bilking thousands of investors out of billions of dollars. He pleaded guilty three months later to charges of fraud, and was sentenced to 150 years in federal prison. He's serving his term at the medium security Butner Federal Correctional Complex in North Carolina and is slated for release on Nov. 14, 2139.
  3. No mention of Nobel prize award ceremonies? Surely there must have been some notable (and timely relevant) recipients

LOL @ "I hang back"....FGM is standing in the way of full American experience. Damn the entire backward ancestors who ruined her chance to "get down with the get down".
  10. Florida Mom Marissa Alexander To Serve 20 Years For Firing Warning Shot, While George Zimmerman Goes Free By Sarah Rae Fruchtnicht, Sun, July 14, 2013 A Florida woman was sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing a warning shot at her allegedly abusive husband. Claiming self-defense, just as George Zimmerman did in the Trayvon Martin shooting trial, a jury convicted Marissa Alexander of Jacksonville of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Alexander, 31, said she feared for her life when she fired a bullet into the wall of her home in August 2010. The Jacksonville mother of three had a protective order against her husband. No one was hurt in the shooting, but a jury found her guilty on May 11, and she was given the mandatory minimum sentence under the gun law: 20 years. Alexander had never been in trouble with the law before, but Circuit Court Judge James Daniel said he wouldn’t allow for any circumstances to reduce the sentence below the 20-year minimum. On Saturday, an all-female jury found George Zimmerman not guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the Sanford, Fla., shooting death of an unarmed 17-year-old, Trayvon Martin. There was no dispute as to whether Zimmerman shot and killed Martin. Instead, the jury considered whether Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, was justified in his use of deadly force, which by Florida state law means force "necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm." Zimmerman waived his right to a “Stand Your Ground” pretrial immunity hearing, CNN reported, and attorneys went forward with the trial as a self-defense case. When Alexander’s attorney made an appeal to reconsider her case under the “Stand Your Ground” law, the judge denied to grant her a new trial. State Attorney Angela Corey, who oversaw the prosecution of George Zimmerman, stood by the Alexander sentencing, according to Press TV. Corey believes that Alexander aimed the gun at her husband. She argues that the bullet fired could have ricocheted and hit him or others in the room. Zimmerman was outdoors in a densely populated neighborhood when he shot Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman also had previous run-ins with the law. He was arrested in 2005 and charged with "resisting officer with violence" and "battery of law enforcement officer." A recording of his 911 call shows Zimmerman said he was following Martin and ignored a dispatcher who told him not to approach the teenager. Zimmerman had no order of protection against Martin. Martin was unarmed. Is it fair for Alexander to spend two decades in jail for a crime that had no fatalities, while Zimmerman walks? Does race and sex influence a jury's decision?

  11. LOL Adeerka is a wise wise man. I see it now....Khat in Europe was the biggest boost to Somali feminism.

There will be a real issue here. I guess some will try to apply for social assistance and then go live in Kenya. However, that is not a long term strategy. I predict the price of khat will probably triple between now and when the ban goes into effect. Then after that maybe North American type pricing $70-$100 per majin. The younger population will resort to more weed smoking and alcohol drinking. Siisha profits will skyrocket. Someone should introduce odeyaasha to mild MDMA. Good replacement.
