Can you beat my score?


Hardly anyone can correctly identify these 9 African countries on a map. Can you? 

I just tried it and thought you would be up for the challenge too. 

There’s an important reason I’m sharing this, but you’ll need to play the game to find out what that is!


Njagua aka Jaguar asks IEBC to relocate to Kicc.

Kigeugeu hit singer  turn MP Hon Njagua Kanyi aka Jaguar,
 has penned a letter to the Kenyan electoral body Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission proposing they moved their Headquarters from CBD to KICC area.

This must have been catalyst by the demonstration which have been witnessed in the capital for sometime now over the nullified elections held on 8/8/2017 by the Supreme Court of kenya.

Whether IEBC with heed his advice,no one knows.

Tanzania’s opposition wants FBI or Scotland Yard to investigate.

Chadema opposition party of Tanzania are sourcing for foreign investigative body to investigate the shooting of the controversial opposition politician Hon.Lissu who was shot afew weeks ago in Singida, Tanzania.
This happens even after the highest Court of the country assure they of the capabilities of the country’s investigating the incident.
Whether this will be agreed by the government is a matter of a wait and see.

A help for Wambilyanga and his avocados

It’s no secret that avocados are delicate, and the flesh of a ripe avocado can quickly change color after it’s been cut, from a gorgeous green to a kind of icky brown. That change in color is a result of oxidation, the chemical reaction that occurs when an avocado is exposed to air, and it’s not a good look. It also doesn’t taste good. The experts at the Hass Avocado Board don’t recommend eating the parts of the avocado that have oxidized or turned brown. The good news is that you can still salvage your browned guacamole or avocado toast, assuming only the top layer has changed color and “the underneath is green.” All you have to do is skim off the brown bits, revealing the green avocado you know and love.

But the best way to avoid eating browned avocados is to prevent oxidation in the first place, and there are a couple of easy ways to stop cut avocados from turning brown. The first, according to Harold McGee in On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen, is to add an acid to the avocado, like lime or lemon juice. This technique works because acid prevents the enzymes that cause the browning from working properly, and it’s a great option for mashed avocados and guacamole.

You can also prevent oxidization by blocking the avocado’s exposure to 

oxygen with plastic wrap. The trick to making this work properly is to ensure sure that the wrap is tightly surrounds the flesh of the avocado so no air can get in. “In the case of mashed avocado, this means pressing the wrap directly into the surface,” notes McGee, not just wrapping the bowl and leaving a pocket of air between the plastic and the avocado because there’s still oxygen in that little air pocket that’ll cause browning.

This plastic wrap solution works especially well for halved avocados, especially those with the pit still in it. That’s because the pit will act as a natural barrier against oxidation, so if you’re only using half of an avocado at once and saving the rest for later, wrap up the half with the pit inside.

There are other hacks out there that people swear by to keep an avocado fresh, like storing it with cut onions or 

brushing the flesh with olive oil. But really, keeping an avocado from getting brown means keeping it away from air, and as long as you keep that advice in mind, you’ll be better prepared to stave off the discoloration

How not to be bitten by mosquitoes

If you’re one of the lucky individuals mosquitos love, try this advice from Nora Besansky, PhD, a professor in the department of biological sciences at Notre Dame: “The simplest way, albeit uncomfortable in the heat, [to avoid bites] is to place a barrier between the skin and a day-biting mosquito—that is, long sleeves and long pants,” she explains. “Even better protection is to apply an effective mosquito repellant to such clothing.” She recommends spraying yourself with a product that contains DEET. For help choosing the right spray for you, check out our list of the best mosquito repellents.

5 why mosquitoes bite more than others.

(1)You’re pregnant

Female mosquitoes (the kind that bite) have a thing for carbon dioxide. Special nerve receptors help them detect the gas in the environment. What does that have to do with your baby bump? A 2002 study published in The Lancet found that women in the later stages of pregnancy (with a mean gestational in weeks) exhale 21% more CO2 than their non-pregnant peers. The researchers speculated that this physiological difference could help explain why the pregnant women who participated in their experiments attracted twice as many mosquitoes. (Because itchy welts are just what you need in your third trimester.) But CO2 may not be the only reason you’re suddenly more appealing: It could also be that pregnant women emit volatile odors that draw the insects, says Laura Harrington, PhD, a professor in the department of entomology at Cornell University.

(2)You’re dripping with sweat

If bug bites drive you nuts, you may want to take your workouts indoors this summer. Lactic acid, a byproduct of vigorous physical activity that’s excreted through sweat, is “indeed an attractant” for mosquitoes, according to Conlon. If you’re sweating profusely, your higher body temperature may play a role too. Warmth becomes more attractive as mosquitoes approach a potential host, says Conlon.

(3)You have type O blood

Just like you have favorite fro-yoflavors, mosquitoes possess so-called landing preferences, and one of them has to do with what’s running through your veins.A study in the Journal of Medical Entomology found that the bloodthirsty fiends are extra attracted to individuals with type O blood. “Type O individuals may share a propensity for exuding certain odors that mosquitoes find attractive,” suggests Conlon.

4)You just had a beer

APLOS ONEstudy done in West Africa on men who drank either beer or water revealed that “beer consumption consistently increased volunteers’ attractiveness to mosquitoes.” Harrington pointed to another study—a small experiment done in Japan—that suggested mosquitoes are drawn to people who have ingested alcohol. “But how widespread that phenomenon is truly remains unclear,” she said.

(5)Your genes make you more attractive

Research on identical and fraternal twins suggests that an underlying genetic mechanism may affect whether you get eaten alive in the deep woods, or escape relatively unscathed. Scientists from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine reported that certain people produce natural mosquito repellents, a trait that appears to be genetically controlled.
