  4. ^^thx for the info. Will/did/remind them to call the local social svs. What's child "mining"?
  5. great thx Blessed. MMA-now that i remember, I only knew abuur as planting, but good to know there is another meaning of it.
  6. International campus of what-ma skool ba? Some of buildings look like primary school classes. N'ways Banaadir campus is pretty. (sorry for being a bit critical here) laakin dhulkii dhamaa ee dhismooyinka ku socdaan waxaa laga dhige dhagax & sibidh/sibir (Shamiito). Even the grounds for walking hadii laga dhigo pavement, & we have problem w/deforestation to begin with....how are we going to survive in the future w/little oxygen capacity anakoo carigeena awalkii ahaa SEMI-ARID? Aloow gormaan Lido iyo agagaarkeeda tegi..
  7. Alpha walaalo, sorry if that's how it came across. No they aren't ignorant....I meant print materials in English (can't read or write that) as they would be fine to getting along w/their daily life in Arizona if that was the case. Not Somali. I was merely asking for any SOMALI resources in ARIZONA, specifically any if, in MESA, for this family. (I Have informed them to check out the local libraries,bookstores-discounted or not for materials, but wondering if any other resources)-such as daycare services so that they can attend school. **Thx for the Headway -I have checked out, but i think it could be dialect issues as the ones i have looked up on GOOGLE are of british Accent, hence can cause cross-cultural misunderstandings-makes sense?
  8. I got a call from a daughter of a colleague volunteering w/a Somali Refugee family (ies) in MESA, ARIZONA (USA) asking if there are materials available for this family to use as they can't afford daycare, to attend Adult language classes close by. (the family has young children, & somehow don't have childcare assistance-or maybe they don't understand the system well, i don't know), so can't go to school. Do you guys know any resources I could refer them to? Somali communities? Daycare resources? DVD's/CD's/Audio etc. I am guessing they won't be able to read or write so print material might not be the best-but anything. Or where i can find such materials? Thank you.
  9. Wiil Cusub;975189 wrote: But patented issue is only for rich countries. Pakistan and Idea re produce so many patented medicines, china copied every thing from those who come with blue print of their prototypes for cheap industrialization. Why should Africa worried for patent rights. Rich countries indeed have patent wars but those multinational companies are holding the local farmers (& hence the whole agriculture-& for all that's concerned the food chain) by the throat/hostage-by suing farmers that neglect to use their seeds (watch Food Inc., this is just a start..)-those that fight, end up loosing not only the battle, but their livelihoods due to litigation costs (millions), or settle out of court. ***I joked once when Dr. Osman posted Puntland's farmland & Machinery & said hopefully you follow Monsanto regulations or your are screwed. The truth is that the patent is not in the minds of the local somali/geeljire farmer, but due to the dependency of the farmer towards the seeds every growth season is problematic & not cost effective (compared to the old ways of using previous harvested seeds to replant). Ok, its a known fact that also companies like MONSANTO also manufactures herbicides/pesticides like RoundUP; as research indicates that such products pollute not only the environment, but as well pose health risks (because crops fed to the domestic livestock can lead to resistance to antibiotics & other health issues. As well as GMO foods reduce the nutritious value of our foods), & our waterways. Those herbicides as well lead to super resistant weeds that wipe out local plant lives & eventually destabilize the local ecosystems during flood/rain seasons. So, yes we have issues (drought, famine, lack of security)..laakin should we even stagnate the local economies by making them even more dependent on the "foreign aid"? How can we ever sustain ourselves if we are can't realize the big picture (dependency vs. self-determination/liberty/sovereignty) ?
  10. ^^^ I have used google translate w/swahili (technical or for scientific rhetoric)sometimes, but I am cautious as some of the words are not even in context to the whole text-hence issues such as above pointed out by Abbaas. Nonetheless, i wlc it.
  11. Che -Guevara;974850 wrote: A human rights issue has been to reduced to "My friends and I will all be in a nightclub having a crazy time, but while they are getting guys' numbers, I hang back," Very unfortunate. Indeed-che & the hang-out's or party lifestyle is besides the point-that's part of some people's growing up. DOC-hopefully some Somali/Lander chick doesn't go "bobbitt" on your Pee-wee eh :rolleyes: ***well if some on this forum, could stomach the details of the article w/out getting caught up on the sexual escapades..well that's a start...
  12. I heard of this last night. Ina lillaahi waina ileyhi rajicuun. May Allah grant him Janna & may his family have the strength to go on-InshaAllah Amin.
  13. ^^waa loo baahanyahay boogaag afka hooyo ku qoran. Mid mid baad ka heli maktabadooyinka (local libraries) if you search. Wyre,..kama hamna kisomali..ulikuwa unasoma...ABUNUWASI, MALKIA na MFALME & Mills & Boon ama
  14. ^^ I can't see the pic(damn work, sometimes i can, sometimes not). So, assuming that he fainted/dropped dead or dead last something. Maskiin. Waryaa MMA-long distance marathonkaa..soor 2bo beri kahor baa laiska soo dharjiyaa. weydii nuune.
  15. So you are back from your honeymoon hah Rudy, there are some (maybe plenty) of SOLers that are back home & you can hook up w/them-inquire around. However, you'll have to tame your serious night-trawls & wake up before the cockerel crows-if you can hang w/that..you're good to go! Otherwise get ready for some Sh*t to bblow your mind-for real:D
  16. artistically yes...however, focus-he's derailed the topic as Homunculus said. I was waiting to hear what happened..only to get "meel Xun bey isla gaadhen" ah. Laakin Fowsia & Amina are professionals, waana gabdho walaala ah ee somaliyeed..at the end of the day-they'll do what's best for the Somali people-be it in Kenya or Somalia. The crux of all this is as the prof said: "What have we done to our children, abandoned as they are to abject poverty and mass prostitution in the drinking bars and brothels of the very Kenya our diplomat is trying to expel? Contemplating the pass we’ve brought to ourselves, any other people would have wilted with collective, malignant shame. But not Somalis. " We need time to heal & reflect. Good read nonetheless.
  17. AT & bi Kidude was fantastic. Thx
  18. Sad. The sheikh's should partake more in community activism instead of just preaching from the pulpit-go to the communities, visit hospitals, refugee camps, schools, feed the homeless (I am not saying that they do, but they need more than just spewing religious rulings from their seatings; they are mindyou wealthy as many of them invest in local Somali businesses). NinYaaban-is daji... As much as i condone violence, but some of these youth-have hopeless outlook in life, who can blame them at the status we are in? Allow sahal.
  19. great work by those brothers-Manshaallah
  20. The importance of Fasting. Watch : Eat, Fast and Live Longer with Michael Mosley http://video.pbs.org/video/2363162206/
  21. protection by any means necessary. Alpha-its similar to machete but more of a farm tool/clearing grass/bushes than fighting. (google a picture of PANGA) many africans use it though as a weapon also.
  22. I just see it as a case of growing pains..we are different, culturally, religious-wise, linguistically, & the prolonged instability back home hasn't helped further our case outside of the country-than many of the refugees that come from Africa at least that recently resettled in western countries-Hence we stand out. Insha-allah in matter of years we will rebuild our communities & things will look less bleak. Arch-wlcm back.
  23. Nuune, I concur, in which such lifelines affect disproportionately the poor (majority Women, elderly & children)-where the SFG can't provide such services but can quarrel about aviation (when many of the folks can't afford something to eat) except the bloated MP's iyo "enlightened" diasporas'. (***not that getting control of the aviation airspace isn't important but....).
