It was long before this but for me, it all started at Bell Lab when an engineer saw the need for a permanent software programming language that could stay long after him. He wanted a generational language. Based on his age he decided to make the language static, but fully functional and features rich. The project when successful and it was launched. Many programmers join in to learn and program in C programming language.

Somewhere somehow there was a discussion of new ideas. For other programmers C was very procedural and slow, but to others it was good but they needed something different. Two programming languages immerged. C++ and Java programming languages were built. C++ was build to go fast, but it gotten dangerously faster. Java was built to go slow and safe. There was a single problem that was common to both of these languages, the need for team. Both man had ideas to change C, but alone it was not going to get done. Java was adopted by Oracle and C++ gotten help from varies team of individuals. When both languages gotten public, there became so much loved, but they were both male programming languages. They produce good results but there were no clear way to keep and organize their work in one place. Good thing happened. Oracle already had Miss mysql. Mysql acted as a she language. It was able to make both languages and many others keep their data in a something called database. This was a brilliant idea.

Then there came many other languages after java and C++ and the programmers where satisfied now. We have what we need to do our job. You can program, keep your data and have the best result as you wanted. But somehow there seems to be a problem. There might have been a discussion about programmers being dressed in uniform, decorate their work place and do all they needed with the looks of their offices but the programs themselves do not do same thing. “We need a suit guy”, they suggested. There came the man who shows it all in the first web he created. It looked good. He dressed it well and was able to look the way he wanted. So the other programmers might have decided to adopt HTML and CSS to format and design most of these languages. These changed the look and feel of software products. Especially in languages like java EE, python, C#, C++, and php and much more.

All were good, but not exciting still. To make it exciting the guys at Netscape came up with JavaScript. JavaScript was exciting and made actions in other programming easy to happen. They went farther by bringing in JSON, Ajax, and JQuery.
There was one particular case that was different to all others. It was the introduction of Mr. Love-PHP. PHP might have been an idea of ownership, love, creativity, but it was sneaky. It was made to go inside HTML without the other programmers knowing it was there. Did you ask yourself why faceBook is the stickiest social site? It is built on love, ownership, and PHP language.

You may have different or many rules or versions of rules of bowling. This is how we bowl. Bowling is a game for people from 2 and onwards.

Clean:This game is mostly played on grass and sand for this reasons, the person to be hit put their rules for you to follow, but you have the right to counter them.

clean ma leng: This just means make my bowl be seen because it could be in sand or grass. If it is in grass, you shake the grass to see if the bowl moves. If it does the person's with the bowl to be hit have a problem because if you hit the grass it means it will shake the bowl and you have eliminated one person or the whole team. The owner of the bowl extends the rule by

clean ma leng pilipili(pure clean): Now here you may have to NDELO (to the surface). Most people NGWAR (try) from here to see if they will make it. This is because some just seems like you cannot make man. You just need to up your man a little because then you are ready for loosing by worrying. You have one chance in this game my man.

clean ma leng change dok(return): This comes mostly from the person whose chance is to play. Its like second chance of death. It means, if I miss it from here, am going back to my original position because if I can miss your from there then you can also miss me there( seems like position problems).

Guard: This means drawing line around the bowl. You are allowed to draw a 360 degrees line around the bowl, but the distance from your current position to the bowl should be same to the original. This is from the player's side

Line: If the played person realize exposer to getting knock out, they will counter you with

No line: so you are not able to see them.

peak(hit Hard): this is so because you are too close or a bit far to the bowl. So close that when you bend, you are away from the bowl.

peak ma tek (hit it hard): So that you cannot control your speed.

peakk ma tek wing wing (hit it real hard): even tighten further by this rule. when you take your hand that far and bringing it closer don't you think you missed the bowl? when you miss here(guys) Ombute is on its way, but when you get it of course it is a Tingit(target)

Kaduch: This is from the player or played mostly when the position is too close. You just roll it ndok ndok (confident slow) because you are surely aware its going to knock it or you do so to make sure when you miss you are a little distant from them to make sure they don't get to hit you that easy.

Ofu: is the final and worse of all. In or out and you are taking it our you or all of you are heading for a lost. And here there is no counter. That is the whole rule. Just make it happen.

Founders: East Africa was historically founded by three countries (Uganda, Kenya and Tanzanian) that also means three founding fathers known to all of us in 1967. Today, there are six East African countries with more countries seeking to join in. President Jomo Kenyatta, President Julius “Mwalimu” Nyerere, Prime Minister Obote, the “founding fathers’ of the first EAC

Differences and similarities: East Africa is blessed with Land, water, and favorable temperature suitable for farming, human inhabitation and so on. Having said that, East African countries do not have same opportunities because of their locations and kind of resources available to them. These also means that we have different strengths and weaknesses. It is naturally good idea to create differences amongst society especially when they share same strengths and resources for instance, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Somalia etc are all coastal countries i.e. they all are bordered by Indian Ocean. Because of that, they have similar activities to do for instance fishing, ports, beaches, human settlements. On the other hand, Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia and Burundi have same resources such as fresh water, abundance of land for agriculture, and modern borders entering and exiting. That might imply that each country comply and choose their strength from the list and give other countries chance to prosper or a few of the things. It also means thinking outside our own country and thinking of East Africa at large. It require different idea and logic to do that because it is wide, more people, more challenges and opportunities. That might need us to change our way of life, thinking, reasoning and tasks. That means our enemy is different from us and our competitors have to change. It will have to be another region verses us. East Africa has to use all her resources. I mean wouldn't be to have retirees speaks their minds, is it not waste of human capital to make senior politicians, academicians, farmers, and economist redundancy? They could help us solve problems using their skills and experience or leads major projects etc.

Future: Since the founding of East Africa community, there had been the political issues and differences at top of agenda. We might need to change our views to businesses, education(institutions), Sciences, Engineering etc. It also means that we have let those body run their businesses like the political body do without political interference what so ever. This will allow big competition which will result into unity, creation of jobs, formation of new bodies, enabling more people involvement, and getting access to more voices of different thinkers in the region. East Africa also has to think hard and deep about offshore descendants. They are the major financial contributors yet most ignored. I am talking about passport. They need to have access to East African passports which will allow them travel, trade, work, and study in all East African countries(their countries) with ease. Whatever it is, something ought be done to encourage the diaspora to participate as family to the region. I have sense of pride being call an East African but disappointed of my position in my own home. I might not be the only one here, there could be others with same situation as I am. So, please do help especially the political body which is the largest and most active for now.

Discrete mathematics: Combinatorics
This problem(s) cause me a big mute. I choose Discrete mathematics especially Cobinatoric to help me solve it. I may not be 100% right, but at least I want to try and do something. I am going to use four most important part of Combinatoric namely, Rules of sum, Rules of product, sequence, and Binomial. Thanks for reading.
1: Rules of sum: If an action is performed by making A choices or B oher choices, then it can be performed A + B ways.
Let's think that a tribe has community with population of
A(Uminmadit) = 1,200,000
B(Nakwar) = 500,000
C(magi) = 450,000
D(Omi) = 120,000
F(Lodi) = 380,000
G(Gories) = 140,000
H(Peilwor) = 80,000
I(poki) = 420,000
therefore, Totoal Communities(A+B+C+D+E+F+G+I) = 8
Total population(1200000+500000+450000+120000+380000+140000+80000+420000) = 14,090,000 people
2 Rule of products: If an action can be performed by making A choices followed by B choices, then it can be performed AB ways.

Bad leader with the following attitudes towards the community

  • dominant leaders with intention to control everything and shut down growth
  • demorolising behaviours
  • setting confusion

Good Leader with the following attitudes towards the community

  • Building community for the future
  • encouraging people in their own strength
  • solving problems in away suitable for everyone
  • teaches others to follow the right path
  • Healer
  • Job creator
  • preventing community from harms

Using Rules of product
Good attitutes = 3*8 = 24 characters
Bad attitutes = 7*8 = 56 characters

Using Rules of sum
total characters(24+56) = 80 leaders that can confused or build the entire communities of 8.
3:Binomial coefficient: nCk (N choose K(constant))
n = total number of people
C = choose
K = constant(number chosen)

let imagine that for every problem or solution provided in the community, the result impacts people either bad or good.

Assumption: Lets assume that bad behavior is caused by only one of the community e.g. The poki community.then, the factorial (0<>k<>N) of 8! choose 1!*7! = 8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1/1*7*6*5*4*3*2*1 = 40320/5040 = 8 notorious leaders with bad characters.

Assumption: Lets assume that for each of the 8 notorious leaders all have all 3 of bad leadership characteristics and each bad characteristic affects about 12 people from each community of 8. Lets use sequence to help solve this part of the equation. That will mean 3^8 = 6,561 well armed bad characters ready for destruction. It does not end here, there are still 12 more people from the other communities who can be affected by this characters. Then this means we have about 6,561*12 = 78,732 people possessed with bad characters now ready for destruction. What if all this leaders have about 4 more people that they know in each community? Using rules of product, then that will be 78,732*4 = 314,928 people affected in the community enough to take one whole community down with them . The reverse of this is strong enough leaders to convince all the other 7 community members and be able to bring down the leaders of bad characters. They can turn all of them in to good characters unless they become silent and do not reject attitudes of bad characteristics leaders from expanding their powers. Imagine one of the 8 leaders of bad characters raised his/her hand to confuse the people from the 7 communities and the 7 strong good leader characters also raised their hands and voice to stop them. Good will always win, but if the number is opposite then they bad characters leaders always wins. The less people can also win if they have more dominant people while the more people can loose if they all have inferrior character leaders. Even worse if you think of this in terms of years.

Scenario: Without naming a particular leader, lets take two scenarios of leaders. One from the west and one from Africa. This is about what power a leader of a country has on people of her country. We are going to use example of military power. Lets assume that both of this leaders have about 1,400,000 military personnel under their command each.

Africa: a president, or prime minister, or chancellor chooses where their targets are for instance, one of the village is growing stronger. He deploy half of his/her military for a task there. Whether to take control or for his/her own purposes, the soldiers go and complete their task. Then that means the president alone has 1.4 million time leadership power. what if he has the bad characters, lots of lives are either save or destroyed. I assume this could be the reason why Africa have ethnic, power, power clinging, and one sided growing countries. To solve this problem(s) according to me, Military should be a multi party wing. That means they agree on word of the parliament, public, and a well signed document by several wings of country care takers.

West: In the west, before a president, or prime minister, or chancellor deploy soldiers for a task, their opponent(opposition) must know and agree to it. They do this true the parliament. All the parties sign an agreement or understanding of the deployment of the troups wherever they are going or whatever task they are going to do. By doing this, power of leaders in the West is divided equal to the number of people in the Parliament. Remember, the people in the parliament also have family and relatives. They will join in to either reject or agree to the call by the leaders. This leads to the entire country agreeing before something is done. I assume that is the why the west have clean, developed, and always growing communities.

In conclusion, For community(ies) to co-exist, all leaders should have one direction of intention and that is to make and build members and the community(ies) prosperous. They should be able to see suffering, needs, and wants of the people in the community instead of trying to solve their own egos. If you try to solve your own problems, you are going to have problem(s) with the community. They may not tell you straight away, but will be able to let you or your family know in the future. The sense and spirit of togetherness yields more good and produces better future for all. This work can go further, but I hope we all got what it means.

This is a personal work. It is either sponsored by anyone or directed toward anyone. It is an opinion of individual as a citizen of this planet. If you fall under bad one just try to see if you can change or adopt more better characters. If you fall under good one, try to help the other so we all become better people and citizen of this planet earth of ours. I might be one under the bad one too. If you tell me I will know. This work is under development. I do not support either west or Africa governing system, but tries to tell it in this scenario as I know.

Kuyere(peer) has many forms, definitions, sections and meanings because it is a thing that we do because we get evolve through such things and becomes it. If Kuyere means Learning, then, it is a learning of class of people of different or same age and gender. It could on the other hand explained passing of knowledge from one generation to the next normally elder to younger, educated to uneducated and the like. Kuyere is preferably good because knowledge pass on and retain. It also sets foundation for future generations. Experiences and skills learned may be used in future. Learning is also easy because information passed are raw, consumable and easy to translate and relate since age is almost same or same generation of people. It is also advantages to parents because rules are passed to children and their acceptance to it is immedaitly noticed.

Kuyere is also bad because children learn bad characters, ideas and get to do them as they are not supervised by elders during those time.

Technology rule now and it may continue to rule for some time. It was ideally replicating our physical world virtually. It happened and it ease our lives in many ways for instance education e.g. documenting, videoing, good tools for writing, storage and distribution of information and documents, gaming and many others. It did not stop there, now, we try to bring our virtual world to reality for example drones, robots like cleaner robots which helps us with domestic works, and autonomous cars, Rovers, bichola. What is the next thing if I may ask? I just think we are about to pop things out of our virtual world and emerge them to our physical world. That means we can have a car racing anywhere in the world and have drivers from anywhere in the world. They will either have a device connected to a single race car or connect online on their computer then play. We might loose paper cash and move to digital money. Try to imagine having your own pet but electronic one which talks with you, walk with you, and help you do tasks. They will think for themselves and act in accordance to situation. If that is to happen, I just need Oyo! What would you like to have and what do you think is next thing?

Note: World refers to human beings and things that surround them externally excluding their movements.

A business as they say is an organization or enterprising entity engaged in commercial, industrial or professional activities. A business can be a for-profit entity, such as a publicly-traded corporation, or a non-profit organization engaged in business activities, such as an agricultural cooperative. Business can also be a hobby practiced for an extended period of time that yields or evolve into income generating activity. The main point here is not business anyway, it is starting a business. Allow me say this, it is hard, dreading, time consuming, require patience, skills, and commitment because it has lots of challenges, pains to go through, its hard/difficult. In some reasons, business does not earn much money rather employment does more good especially when a business has no demand, has no customers and product has no consumers.

Choice of business
Choice of business counts because most businesses are meant to bring in income. The best type of the business however, is the one that solves problems, not easy because everyone can just start and do it which creates flooding of market. How do you a business is solving problem? Almost all businesses do. It also good to start a business that adds value to itself as it grows, change with the public needs and interests and evolves with time. If you own a banana plantation, you are solving food issue at immediacy, but in long term you could go into stems which produces fibres for making rags, papers, bags etc. The later products always have higher costs to start and requires more skills to do. Or take products like cassava with later products like polythene papers, shopping bags, Jerry cans etc.

Turning hobby into business
What if I earn enough? people with enough cash spend them on charity type business. They are the ones that build water, roads, electricity especially for poor places that cannot afford such. What if you just graduated and have no job? what if you love a job you have been in for the whole of your life? what if a hobby generate more money than your income? what if a hobby makes you too busy that you cannot do other things? Well, to me, a hobby is things you do out of love for the love of it. You only do when you have the time however, when it earns lots of money, then it might force you to go into business. That means hiring more people with the right skills to help solve or fill the gaps.

My choice for you
My choice is Technology - software in particular. Learning software might take you a hefty time to master but, it will be the only thing you will appreciate you did. There are few basic languages that are easy and in general are used in most other languages. They are like the base programing languages e.g. CSS, HTML, SQL, and Javascript. When you learn this languages then you can proceed to where and what you want to do in software industry or what you want to solve by software. Games C++, Web PHP, and desktop and mobile including web Java. If you mast any of these three languages, you have arrived to the leagues of logic. The need for software engineers are more than anything you can think of in this world. People or region who will have more software engineers and programmers will lead the rest because everything you will do in the future is either online or on a piece of device. Just an example for you. Mpesa is a Nigerian idea. The guy was in the Uk and tried everything there, but nothing worked. He moved to USA so he can achieve it - it didn't work too. He lastly moved back to Nigeria with one laptop and start learning programming. There were two of them at the time. He struggled for twenty years learning Java. Later he started a company called Software culture(I cannot find it but that is what I remember). The company grew to about 300 employees and after Mpesa type product, they released pay role, academy products and many others. Today, he helped save our lives and making it easy.

Oyo realized they are giants in the world of Apyemwol based on size, height, number, creativity and kind of work they do however, they are not the most fierce, intelligent, productive, and powerful - Moro is. The question in Oyo Kingdom is, "what makes mworo different from us that makes them so superior?". Well, fact of the matter is, they are hunters, colonists, fighters, murderers in the most worst way you can ever imagine, learned to work in group and fight channeled battles and wars. There powerful weapon is their razor sharp teeth which pierce through leaves, stems, fruits, soil, branches and skins and hides. Moro other powerful arsenal is their persistence, commitment, and ability to grow mushrooms from other living things remains like trees and grass - a thing only done by them in the entire colony of Apyemwol. Imagine such level of intelligence! Moro are also the most brave of the bravest i.e. they can take on things small and big, fight them off and colonize their territory. Unlike others, Moro set themselves apart once they occupy a territory by changing the infrastructure to a style they understand, easy for them to live and adopt. Moro also taught themselves one fight for a win. That means when they do not win both the war and battle, they die in the fight(Just imagine). in spite of all this, Oyo dared to surpass Moro in the near future by adopting, copying, and learning living and behaving the Mworo way. Will Oyo? how? I leave that to you to find out.

It rained cat and dog in Apyemwol village that every one was worried about what was to happen next. Some thought that in few days or weeks the village might need to move kuca/kwica. The rest of the people like frogs, elephants, hippos, fish etc where excited about the news because they can then have enough water to swim in and have lot of fun. The news was not very good to Okoro(seashells, snail) because of their speed and size because much water to them also means discomfort(drawning). It will take so much time to cross when water level reached its height. Otongile(mantist) thinks that Okoro(seashells, snails) just needs to find leaf to float on and let water just take 'em to wherever it flows (easy hah!) because they will find a place at the end. Many Apyemwol believed that some Okoro might have listened to Otongile. They confirmed that from some of them now living in the seas, lakes, rivers, etc while others on land. Not only that, some apyemwol also thought that some might had gotten out of their shells and turned into lakaladini(leach). Okoro might have gone to ask experiences of other Apyemol like the Frogs and the like. All of them offered help to Okoro. Okolong(centipede/millipede) offered to coil itself to lift them across one after the other till all of them are safe. That was the most heart breaking offer Okoro receive because they are nearly or are exactly same in almost all things they do. The Water colony Apyemwol told all of them not to worry to much. If anything, they are all in together and they will make sure all are safe.

Apye = things that are all jumping
Mwol = things that are all walking, and scrolling
Apyemwol = all things jumping and scrolling.
Kuca/kwica = over there
Okoro = snail
Otongile = mantis
Lakaladini = (seashell)
Okolong = centipede

If there is one thing I hate the most about our(Luo) culture, it is definitely our homes. Our traditional housing styles does not favor life people during bad weathers and have short duration of time. It has been like that for centuries now. That does tell

us that we have nothing new and we cannot improve our housing conditions. We have however borrowed and adopted many models from o ur role models, friends and allies and they seems to work out just well.

Problems: The only problems with this house types are their price tags in spite of all the good that comes with it. It costs hundreds of thousand times our model and there are not enough skills to do so perfectly as yet because of materials use.

Benefits: There are more than one reason to have this housing condition particularly smart houses. It is secured, provide security, durable, safe to live in, healthy, provide conditions to things like fridge, water, and better lighting and family life.

Costs: Depending on country and location of building house prices differs. On average and in an averagely modern and good town, prices ranges from $10,000 to $20,000 thousand to build such accommodations excluding home ware like washing machines, tables, fridge etc. On top of that, you might be required to pay about $2,000 to $5,000 for land and that is it. All in all, about $50,000 should build a house seen in the picture.

Acquiring that money: Borrow or work in a group of about four people if you can save about $5,000 each a year. You can work on a house a year till you have four houses for all the four of you.

Reducing costs: It is work of civil servants to see into it that housing is provided to people who cannot afford to build for themselves. Building apartments and many government rental accommodations could help solve shortage and reduce crimes in towns and cities. It also help in managing people and making a city vibrant to the locals.
