THE MASSES SHOULD BE SENSITIZED ON TERRORISM


The recent Kampala bombings by the al Shabab militia a Somali based armed terrorist wing that collaborates with Osama bin laden's AQAP(Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula),brought to Uganda's public eye a question that has for so long been ignored,the scourge of terrorism,Terrorism which has worldwide been described as both a crime and a holy duty;a tactic and strategy;more plainly a justified reaction to oppression and an inexcusable abomination,is the calculated use of unlawful violence or threat of unlawful violence to inculcate fear; intended to coerce or to intimidate governments or societies in the pursuit of goals that are generally political, religious, or ideological. The scourge of terrorism has swept over the world at such pace as never imagined,undoubtedly terrorism is here for keeps and the degree to which all countries are becoming vulnerable is scaring.
Although the nations of this earth seem to have acknowledged terrorism as an epidemic that we have potential and ability to eradicate from our mother planet,it appears little has been done to curb this disease,the world doesn't fight terrorism as a united force,only a few countries are comfortable sharing their technology,expertise and energy to fight terrorism with other nations,,the narrow interest poor countries especially from Africa and Asia find it practically impossible to keep up with the rapidly changing technology these terrorist employ,the responsiveness of government agencies is slow and the government security intelligence agencies are not adequately trained and properly equipped so as to be able to provide accurate information on impeding terrorists attacks,grants and aids are not availed to the poor countries to fight and contain this scourge,apathy or the lack of interest in and concern for this subject has created an atmosphere that can easily be manipulated by the terrorists.
Because these terrorist organizations are secretive and small sized ,the amount of publicity that government should give to this subject should be grave and all masses should be sensitized and terrorism warnings to the public be aggravated, there is a tremendous need to educate the government agencies about these acts of terrorism
Preparation for a disaster is complicated, however. Better equipment is needed to deal with such a disaster,all relevant government agencies must be involved, More funding is needed for research and development. The authorities should formulate public policy with the political resolve to take steps against foreigners who are exporting terrorism.
Every citizen would have to be vigilant in identifying the danger,from the traders in Owino to the corporates in offices,we should come forward and start participating through team policing
Active participation of the masses could help in mitigating the terrorist effects, People should be made aware of the ways of possible terrorist acts and their duty in such events be specified
Due to the significant presence of Ugandans in this bombing plot,there is a paramount need to sensitize, educate enlighten appropriately and make aware the citizens of this country to be able to to fight the menace of terrorism and shun the elements in the society who perpetrate terrorism,
Terrorism should be introduced in schools and institutions as it is very important that our next generation be aware of it
Society should come forward and start participating through team policing and network of information between people and police is very important in combating terrorism

The public should be sensitized an taught about the terrorism definition and aims of terrorists,
grounds and the areas of interests of terrorists,equipments and gadgets used by the terrorists,the appearance of terrorists in different disguises

As we condemn this acts of cowardice,barbarism and badly placed religious beliefs in the name of terrorism,we should all,young and old,rich and poor,strong and weak join hands and and fight this scourge.

For all our fallen brethren,may their souls rest in eternal peace and all those who sacrificed their efforts,energy,resources,time and prayers the lord shall reward you abundantly
                                                                
For God and my country

The Jesus Film - English Language

THE OTHER LEAST HALF

John(not real names) was a jovial nonchalant family man who would go an extra mile to have his family of two kids and a wife happy all their life,he was a responsible God fearing man with strong integrity and moral characterization and  more so he believed his wife loved him so much until he caught his wife red handed with a man 'pants down'
It was the worst thing to happen to him for all his life,a look at his face could speak out even to the bystanders that a dark cloud of hate and rage had befell him,he could not pick himself up for the one he loved most had betrayed him,his love and his entire family
Today it is known that infidelity is absolutely the greatest cause of divorce and separation in this ever competitive society
Cheating is usually a symptom of an unhealthy relationship. It destroys friendships, breaks trust, and causes guilt, anger, hurt and many other negative emotions. Cheating in relationships is not going to last. People know all these facts, but still go on cheating others.
The major point about cheating in relationships is that it is accidental. Most people do not want to cheat on their associates. A known fact is that most persons who experience infidelity in their relationships are likely to experience it in future also, even when they move on to other relationships. This is pretty incredible, but true. Some people think that getting badly burned once would be sufficient. However, this is not quite the way it occurs for many people.
There are several reasons why cheating, adultery, infidelity and extra marital affairs often occur in many relationships. People are complicated and appearances can be deceptive. Cheating in relationships depends upon several factors.
One important factor is the choice of a partner or spouse. If the choice is not in line with what they require or wish, or with what their partner can give them, there is a chance of cheating.
Cheating also occurs when people fail to give their relationships priority by putting time and energy into them. Another major reason is the failure to understand the issues that led to infidelity in the first place. Many people do not want to analyze the role they played in the failure of a relationship. In most cases, they blame others for things that went wrong rather than look inward for complete understanding.
Cheating often occurs in many marital relationships.
Communication is here the most problematic issue. For a myriad of reasons, partners get little time to talk about feelings with each other, particularly negative feelings. In some relationships, partners are not allowed to share unhappiness.
Misunderstandings also make people feel that their spouse does not want to hear their problems. So they do not talk about difficulties. The lack of a sense of empowerment, issues of self esteem and unequal partnership are also significant problems in any relationship.

THE MEN WHO SUED GOD

In the US state of Nebraska, State Senator Ernie Chambers filed a suit during 2008 against God seeking an injunction, as an effort to publicize the issue of public access to the court system. The suit was dismissed due to the fact that God could not be properly notified, not having an address. The Judge stated 
"Given that this court finds that there can never be service effectuated on the named defendant this action will be dismissed with prejudice". The senator believing God to be singular and all-knowing responded 
"The court itself acknowledges the existence of God. A consequence of that acknowledgment is a recognition of God's omniscience ... Since God knows everything, God has notice of this lawsuit." 
Chambers filed the lawsuit in response to another lawsuit he considers to be frivolous and inappropriate.
In response to Chambers' case two responses were filed. The first was from a Corpus Christi lawyer, Eric Perkins, who wanted to answer the question "what would God say". The second was filed in Douglas County, Nebraska District Court. The source of the second response, claiming to be from "God", is unclear as no contact information was given.
On July 30, 2008, local media sources reported the Douglas County District Court was going to deny Chambers' lawsuit because Chambers had failed to notify the defendant.However, on August 1 Chambers was granted a court date of August 5 in order to proceed with his lawsuit.
"The scheduling hearing will give me a chance to lay out the facts that would justify the granting of the motion," Chambers was quoted as saying. He added, 
"Once the court enters the injunction, that's as much as I can do," he said. "That's as much as I would ask the court. I wouldn't expect them to enforce it."
However, a judge finally did throw out the case, saying the Almighty was not properly served due to his unlisted home address. Chambers responded to the news by saying 
"the court itself acknowledges the existence of God. A consequence of that acknowledgment is a recognition of God's omniscience. Since God knows everything, God has notice of this lawsuit." 
As of November 5, 2008, Chambers filed an appeal to the Nebraska Supreme Court.The former state senator John DeCamp and E. O. Augustsson in Sweden, asked to represent God. Augustsson's letters, mentioning the Bjorn (see the BjornSocialist Republic) were stricken as "frivolous". The Appeals Court gave Chambers until February 24 to show that he notified DeCamp and Augustsson of his brief, which he did. The case was finally closed on February 25 when the Nebraska Court of Appeals dismissed the appeal and vacated the order of the district court. The court quoted cases according to which "[a] court decides real controversies and determines rights actually controverted, and does not address or dispose of abstract questions or issues that might arise in hypothetical or fictitious situation or setting".
A Romanian prisoner, identified as Pavel M, serving 20 years after being convicted of murder, filed a lawsuit against the Romanian Orthodox Church, as God's representatives in Romania, for failing to keep him from the Devil, essentially stating that his baptism had been a binding contract. The suit was dismissed because the defendant was neither an individual nor a company, and was not subject to the civil court of law's jurisdiction.

In the comedy film The Man Who Sued God, a fisherman played by Billy Connolly successfully challenges the right of insurance companies to refuse payment for a destroyed boat on the common legal exemption clause of an Act of God.(force majuere) In a suit against the world's religious institutions as God's representatives on Earth, the religious institutions have the dilemma of either having to state God does not exist to uphold the legal principle, or being held liable for damages caused by Acts of God.(force majuere)

In the "Angels And Blimps" episode of the television legal drama Ally McBeal, a boy with leukemia attempts to sue God. 

In the episode "The Nutcrackers" of the television legal drama comedy Boston Legal, a woman sues God for the death of her husband. "God in the Dock", a 1980 episode of Christian TV series Insight, featured Richard Beymer as God put on trial by humanity.

Former Auschwitz concentration camp inmate Elie Wiesel is said to have witnessed three Jewish prisoners try God in absentia for abandoning the Jewish people during the Holocaust. From this experience, Wiesel wrote the play and novel The Trial of God. It is set in a Ukrainian village during 1649 after a massacre of the Jewish inhabitants, possibly as part of the Khmelnytsky Uprising. In the play, three traveling minstrels arrive in the village, having intended to perform a play. Instead they perform a mock trial of God for allowing the massacre. The verdict is innocent, after a stirring lone defense by a stranger who, in a twist, is revealed to be the Devil.

In a satirical news piece, The Onion parody newspaper published an article stating that New York attorneys had filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of the Children of Israel (the Israelites). The suit alleged a breach of the religious covenant between God and his chosen people, and sought $4.2 trillion in punitive and compensatory damages.
