1. My name is Akintunde Ahmad, and I am a senior at Oakland Technical High School. I am aware that many of you have heard about my story recently in the news. It is true, I am headed to one of the nations top universities, although I have not yet decided which one. However, at these schools my expected family contribution is still in the range of $17,000 to $28,000. That is why I would greatly appreciate any donations, as many people have expressed that they would like to help me with college tuition in any possible. 

    Thank you in advance, 

    Akintunde Ahmad

  4. "So Nigeria has now supplanted South Africa as Africa’s largest economy. But I’ve not had light (electricity) for seven days, so it means nothing to me."
    — A Nigerian social media user • Upon hearing that revised economic figures in the country—a revision 24 years in the making—put the country’s GDP (currently at $510 billion) far ahead of South Africa (currently at $353 billion) and other countries in the African continent. To give you an idea of how long it’s been: During the last GDP check in 1990, 300,000 landlines existed in the country. Now, there are 100 million cell phones. But that GDP level, above developed countries such as Chile, Sweden, and Belgium, belies a tough reality in the country—70 percent of the country’s population still lives in poverty.

    The Amazing Connections Between the Inca and Egyptian Cultures

    "The ancient Egyptians (in Africa) and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas (in South America) evolved on opposite sides of the globe and were never in contact.

    Yet, both cultures mysteriously possessed the same strikingly identical body of ancient art, architecture, symbolism, mythology and religion.

    The Victorian era scholars, faced with this enigma, concluded that both cultures must have been children of the same Golden Age parent civilization, “Atlantis.”

    Today, Egyptian/Inca parallels are not only being ignored by American and Western scholars, they’re being suppressed.

    Many baffling and unsolved similarities link the ancient Egyptians and the ancient pre-Incas/Incas ― even though both cultures evolved on opposite sides of the planet, separated by oceans” Read More

    I dreamed a dream in time gone by, when grades were high and fucks worth giving. I dreamed no test would make me cry, I dreamed that curves would be forgiving. Then I was young and unprepared, and A’s were made and used and wasted. There were no extensions to be begged, no nights unslept, no effort wasted. But the finals come at last, with their laughter soft as thunder, as they tear your grades apart, as they turn your dream to shame
