Kenya – Wonder of the World

The wildlife reaches its peak in Kenya. The parks have many natural wonders, including one of the 7 World Wonders: the migration of savage animals in Maasai Mara Natural Reservation. The Maasai tribe lives in this area and is recognizable by its red-painted skin. A huge number of wildebeests periodically cross the border from Tanzania to Kenya, exposed to other animals’ attacks in their journey. Nowhere in the world does something so spectacular happen.KENYA

Nairobi National Park and Amboseli are equally impressive. The lakes are also rich in fauna and flora; the mountains can be challenging for climbers and offer great landscapes. In addition, Kenya was the ground of Ancient civilizations, so you should check Kariandusi’s archaeological sites. The Lamu Archipelago includes one of the oldest inhabited towns in Africa. Nairobi and Mombasa are the better-known cities, with various tourist destinations and a very exciting nightlife. Actually, besides coffee plantations, tourism is the most profitable ‘good’.


Kenyans live in communities and value togetherness and solidarity. They can be very friendly and don’t appreciate gossip. They despise selfishness and individualism. People like to hang out in big groups and most of them are passionate about dancing. Cavacha and zouk are popular, but the music in clubs tends to be very diverse. There are many stereotypes about Kenyans, such as the fact men can marry many women. This is very, very rare. It’s true though that cows are a symbolical price for a bride. The prejudice that Kenyans respect tribal deities and have weird rituals remains untrue. Most of them are Christian, either Protestant or Catholic, and less than 10% of the population still holds indigenous beliefs.


They do have some interesting superstitions. They don’t depart with any farewell by night — ‘Good Night’ means you’re wishing the death of that person. What you do at the beginning of the week, of the month or of the year is what you’ll have to go through for that whole period of time. So it’s nice to give someone money on the 1st of January or make them feel good, since it means they’ll have a great year.

Bernie Sanders Challenges Hillary Clinton from the Left

Everybody knows Hillary Clinton is running for president and – like last time – she’s acting like she’s already secured the nomination and will be elected.

We know how well that worked out for her last time.Bernie Sanders Challenges Hillary Clinton from the Left

So imagine the surprise when the poll for New Hampshire came out showing that Sanders has 31% to Hillary’s 41%.

The poll is meaningless in terms of predicting how either candidate will do nationally, but it does show that Hillary is far from a “done deal” this time around, especially considering she will also face competition (more serious than with Sanders) from former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley.

Bernie Sanders Challenges Hillary Clinton from the Left

Hillary has never been seen as a serious “progressive” by the Left. She’s the establishment candidate and too hawkish on foreign policy causes and too cozy with big corporations for the taste of Liberals. Bernie Sanders has no chance of winning anything except the protest vote but he will force Hillary to tack Left more than she’d like and he may siphon enough votes off if he runs as an independent nationally.

Think of Ross Perot costing George H.W. Bush enough votes to allow Bill Clinton to win back in 1992.

Bernie Sanders Challenges Hillary Clinton from the Left

The more momentum Sanders (and O’Malley) build the more Left wing wackos that will come out of the woodwork which will expose more and more Americans to just how extremist the Democratic party has become.

That is why I am hoping Sanders keeps gaining in the polls. What I think will likely happen is O’Malley will win the nomination but the Democrats will be so bloodied by the Leftist in-fighting that they will be heavily weakened and, unless a complete idiot wins the GOP nomination (i.e. Bush) Republicans will take control of the Executive branch.

This Is How A Limo Rental Can Benefit You

Car rentals are very common and a number of people are taking cars on rent in order to take care of their daily travelling needs. Some of the car rentals are for outstation travels and some are for daily commute. Irrespective of what your needs are, you need to make sure that you go beyond a car rental and hire a limo for yourself today. A limo is something that not everyone gets to travel in. If you want to make sure that you are travelling in style as well as in comfort then there is nothing better than a Limo rental for you today. All you need to do is go online and check the best limo car hire that is on offer and book a Limo ride for you and your family.

Everyone deserves to ride in a Limo at least once in their lifetime. If you feel that you are going through a lot of stress and you need to unwind then there is nothing better than sitting in the backseat of a limo and enjoying a nice peaceful ride. You can even surprise your family members and ensure that they get the ride of their lifetime in a Limousine.

As you may already be aware a Limo can accommodate more than the standard four people. This means that no matter how big your family is you will be able to get them in a limo and have fun without sitting in a cramped up space. Another benefit of a Limo ride is you get refreshments along the way. Unlike a normal ride in a car where you would have to stop to get refreshments, the refreshments are provided inside a limo and you can even enjoy a drink or two along with your loved ones. You can book a Limo ride for a tour of the city or you can book a Limo ride for a drive to a nearby town. A number of people book Limo rides to get to work on a daily basis. Not only does this help to create a good impression it also ensures that they reach work comfortably. When your day starts on a good note your mindset is excellent and you will not end up losing your temper or getting frustrated through the day.

Another benefit of a Limo ride is you get the most trusted drivers at your doorstep. When you have the best drivers driving you around town you will not have to worry about how reliable their skills are or how reliable the person is. All background checks are done on the drivers and only then are they put on the job. If you have availed of the service before you can even ask for a specific driver that may know the way you like to drive around and your specific stops. This way you will not have to repeat yourself over and over again and you will even get a personalised service if you have the same driver again.

Hoover Dam & Lake MeadThe Hoover Dam and Lake Mead area of Nevada is a very popular Las Vegas side trip. Two to three thousand people visit daily to see the architectural wonder of the dam and experience nature at the Lake Mead National Recreation area.


Hoover Dam is a massive curved wall 660 feet thick at the bottom and 45 feet at the top. It towers 726 feet above bedrock and holds 9.2 trillion gallons of water in Lake Mead.


The Hoover Dam was a significant achievement of its time and accomplished two main goals; it stopped extensive flooding in the spring and summer months, and did away with the dry, rough terrain that lacked irrigation the rest of the year.

Fun Fact

It took 6 1/2 years to fill Lake Mead, which is named after Elwood Mead who oversaw the dam’s construction.

DIY Wilderness Survival

In a survival situation, many people panic because of a lack of wilderness experience or knowledge of survival skills. Even if you lack hard skills, however, you can use simple strategies to prioritize tasks and maintain a positive mental state. By staying focused on your mental clarity, you can use common sense to stay safe until you are rescued.

Step 1

Stay calm. Although your first instinct in a survival situation will likely be to panic, it is crucial to stay calm and maintain a positive attitude. In the book “Deep Survival,” author Laurence Gonzales explores the factors that allow stranded people to survive despite overwhelming odds. His website mentions that the first aspect of survival is mental; he writes that you should admit to yourself that you are in a survival situation and assign yourself tasks that will aide in your rescue or safety. For example: set up a shelter, find water and gather wood for a fire.

DIY Wilderness Survival

Step 2

Assess your environment. Prioritize your survival strategies based on the situation. Use your instincts to determine the greatest danger to your personal safety and health, and take the first step to eliminate that risk. If you are stranded in the mountains in the winter, your first goal should be to make a shelter to shield you from snow or rain at night. Then, focus on making a fire to stay warm. If you are in an area where bears are a danger, place any food you have in a high, safe place–hang it from a high tree branch away from your shelter area, for example.

Step 3

Find water. Dehydration is a serious danger to people in a survival situation. Humans can survive longer without food than without water, so make it a priority to find and collect water. Streams are good options, or you can melt ice or snow. If you are in an area with no immediately available water, the Wilderness Survival website suggests digging a large, deep hole; water will collect in the bottom. You can also collect rainwater in a tarp or waterproof jacket.

DIY Wilderness Survival

Step 4

Make a fire. In many environments, a fire is important for warmth or to deter animals. If you have matches or a lighter with you, use them. If you do not, you can build a fire with friction. Use your shoelace and pieces of wood to create a bow-drill fire, as described on the Wildwood Survival website: tie the ends around a flexible piece of wood, twist in a narrow spindle and use the bow to rotate the spindle on top of a bottom board to create friction and a coal.

DIY Wilderness Survival

Step 5

Evaluate movement. Before you move, stop to think carefully about the surrounding area. What knowledge do you have of the terrain? Can you remember a road nearby? Use the sun’s motion to help you find direction, and only move when you have evaluated your safety and set limits for stopping. If you are traveling through mountains, for example, be sure to start early and stop before afternoon weather rolls in. If you are in a hot area, consider traveling during the cooler parts of the morning and late evening to avoid heat stroke and further dehydration.

Why President Obama and the Democrats Want to Admit 10,000 or More Syrian Refugees to the U.S.

President Obama has said he wants at least 10,000 Syrian refugees to be flown to the U.S. and re-settled here. Democratic Congressman Dick Durbin wants 65,000 or more to be admitted. Thus far, up to 90% of the Syrian refugees who have been admitted to the U.S. have been Muslim even though Christians are being slaughtered by ISIS and other Islamic groups and having their churches destroyed and their women sold into slavery.

Obama Snubs Iraqi Prime Minister at G7, ISIS Then Taunts

These “refugees” are being dropped, by the Feds, into 190 American cities (PDF link to list). Idaho, for example, is being forced to accommodate 500 Syrians although locals were told expect possibly 2,000 total.

These will be people without family there to take them in, little knowledge of English, uncertain skill sets, no money, unknown health maladies, and from a different culture and religion who have never probably experienced the “freedom” of the West before.

Obama Snubs Iraqi Prime Minister at G7, ISIS Then Taunts

So many refugees are being admitted so quickly that the FBI cannot even conduct background investigations into them so who know how many may harbor terrorist ties.

Why is Obama – and his party – so vested in this forced injection of Muslim refugees?

Probably because Barack Obama dislikes the fundamental nature of the United States and wants to change it. Democrats likely support this influx because they hope these people will vote Democrat and not Republican.

In other words, it is all about changing the country whether the country likes it or not and putting the Republicans out of reach of the Executive Branch – for good.
