Quoted @TheAtlantic

"I am suffering for you," Trump says. And his supporters say, "Thank you." @olgakhazan reports on one sociologist's view of white men's enduring support for Trump: https://t.co/YP98e4uwZJ

A good read to understand the deep seeded support for Trump from some White Male Americans. Emotion and lack of empathy appears to be main drivers, and decisions like that dont end well for all involved. https://t.co/nzPREq1txs

#Ethiopia this is a little before/after session. You see the implementation of drip irrigation at our #FruitBoxAfrica farm. #FarmLife #Food https://t.co/bc8pQzuhfa

Would be great if our gov, business people, and the real NGOs focus on drip irrigation. I have read a study suggesting that our Somali region can be the most productive region through drip irrigation. https://t.co/GbP4pbAwls

Quoted @VOAAfrica

UN Says Poor Countries a Dumping Ground for Used Cars  https://t.co/97UibVIF99

One major cause is the #African government, eg #Ethiopia, exorbitant vehicle import custom duty tax. Robbery level 500% tax encourages importing old cars. "used vehicles exported into developing countries are generally unsafe and responsible for an epidemic of road accidents." https://t.co/mUB2H9MT0Y

My man, @dkm14! You are faster than a speeding train. "Going above and beyond" to stop the opposing team from scoring. https://t.co/CilkiIKzDY

For almost 20 years, I have said, again and again, Amara people need to organize and defend themselves and protect their interest. But I get accused as "Woyane." Don't cry me a river. I told you so. https://t.co/GpIBWXJQcK

For your pondering this Friday: "Exploring your whys creates clarity and guides your actions." Why do you do what you do? Is what you do getting you closer to your goal?

#Microsoft Azure Modular Data Center. This addresses the lack of ICT infrastructure issues in #Africa and will help digital transformation. https://t.co/L3cbepLNVx

Do you live in US and are 16 years or older? Do you want to get software related technical skills for free. The organization is looking for 5,000 people. https://t.co/bR6ayVF9N0

I see our #Oromo activists campaigning. I sympathize and empathize. I only say selective advocacy deprives you of solidarity and exposes each of us to tyranny. Voice equally when innocents get killed, expelled, and their property burns/looted. When prayer places burn.

Even though ground and aerial control operations continue against swarms in the #HornOfAfrica & Yemen, the situation remains worrisome & could potentially deteriorate during October because of recent breeding.

Lots of plastic waste in #Africa. Thriving building construction. Costly cement. Solution: cinder blocks made from recycled plastic. https://t.co/Vyn48R0jMk

We appeal to @ethiotelecom to make wired and wifi network connection available at elementary and high schools. We are building schools and libraries. Buying and shipping paper books is costly and limited. We would rather buy and ship computers.

Interesting that they all start out acting very nice and democratic at first.

The very first decree of Ahmed bin Ibrahim al Gazi (Gragn) after taking over Harar: "Everyone must remain in his own house; and each may observe his own customs. Do not be afraid and do not grieve and do not be jealous of any of the people."
