Spotlight: Discipline Maketh a man

By Brown Ratemo
Once a philosopher named Karl Marx said in his philosophical thought that one’s social class dictated one’s social life.
Basically, Marx meant that if one is in the upper class, life was one of leisure and abundance.
So as to his thought, itsa clear indication that the way on is being brought up by the parents so is the character.
The issue of being whoyou are starts from the parents and the discipline the imparted into you since the earlier ages.
Now that you are an adult and you expect tochange is impossible,believe you me such thing won’t happen but instead you can restrictthe way of thinking so as to curb its spontaneous actions.
I’m expressing due to what’s  being experienced in today’s era.
People have turned away from the  customs of being presentable, please getme clear, I haven’t said according to the traditional customs ,NOI mean from the way one will see and feel comfortable being with.
The way one walks,dress, eat and generally conducting is very vital to one’s character.Some of the outdated events have to be shun.
First,there is this issue that as rational people have to bury totally.
The habit of going or visiting a relative without their consent isdiversely experienced in the society.Ever surprised by a relative,friend  or someone who knows where you live and comes without alerting?
Yes,that’s what I am talking about.A friend told me that his brother tried to visitthem where they used to stay but to his surprise, he found out that they have moved from where the brother knew they were living.
You can imagine the embarrassment.Before we have an ideaof  visiting a relative,let them know you are visiting them and  that’s etiquette.
When visiting relatives and friends,there are some facts that you need to put in mind.
The habit of doing as your conscious leads in other people’s affairs and things you has to stop because you needto behave as they do,if they take sukuma wiki that’s what you have to take too till you get out to your place. When in Rome,do as the romans do.Secondly, there is an emerging trend that most of the youths have conversantly taken heed of.
The dressing style and neatness of both the body and attire.
Yes I get it, you want to look ‘civilized’ and recognized but NO that’s not the way.
You find that Parents have trained you well,some in a Christianset up  till it dawns on you and you get this classy handsome or beautiful young partnerwho from his/her family doesn’t follow parents advice or rather their parents are ignorant of what is supposed to be done concerning child bring up.
You date till the time oftaking her/him to the family arrives and you do all the necessary preparations to make her/him get know as the one.
Humorously or rather unfortunately, you hear from the parents that the partner you broughtisn’t qualified to be with you and they don’t want to see her/him again.
So why is that, maybe he way of dressing, hairstyle,talking above all manners or character. Why not try be who youare in terms of all that because I believe you didn’t born that way.
The society has corrupted us in many ways through various channels and we have to restrict ourselves in some of the predisposing lines which will eventually lead us to losing this earthly creatures.Finally, the eating habits among us is annoying. You invite someone to for a coffee or a meal in a cafe or a restaurant and you offer something to take but the table manners are aren’t observed. Why spit when you try chewing?
Can’t you exercise a little manners instead of embarrassing yourself or your friend? Yes you can.

Spotlight: Great Friends;Social Life

A great way to meet and make new friends in and outside the office.
A fairly common social issue people have is that they’re not sure how to make friends and put together a social life for themselves.
There are quite a few ways someone can find themselves in this situation:
    • They’ve moved to a new city and don’t know very many people yet.
    • They’ve been in a long-term relationship and have let their social life wither.
     • Their old friends have slowly been dropping out of the picture (moving away, busy with work or a new family, etc.) and haven’t been replaced by new ones.
      • A large chunk of their social circle disappeared overnight, like everyone graduated from university and most of their friends moved out of the city.
      • They feel like they’ve grown apart from their current friends and want to make entirely new ones.
      • In the past they were happy being alone a lot of the time, but now they want to be around people more often.
      • They never really knewhow to make friends and have always wished their social lives were better.
     • They’ve recently made a big lifestyle change such as deciding not to drink anymore, and need to develop a new social circle that’s more suited to it.
Below are my thoughts on how to make friends.
I’ll cover a basic structure first, then go into some attitudes and principles towards the whole thing that I think are important.
I’ve noticed people who are already good at making friends naturally tend to do most of the things I outline below.
Bare bones guide on how to make friendsHere are the basic steps to making friends.
It seems simplistic, but there can be a lot to each point.
People who struggle with their social lives often stumble on one or more ofthem as well.
1. Find some potential friends
To make friends you first have to find some possible candidates. There are two main ways to do this:
Draw on your current contacts
This won’t apply to people who have just moved to a new area and don’t know anyone, but often you’ll already have the seeds of a social life around you.
You don’t necessarily have to go out and meet ten strangers to have one.
It’s often easier to turn existing contacts into full-fledged friends than it is to meet new ones.
There are probably a handful of people you already know who could end up becoming part of a new social circle. I’m talking about people like:
    • Acquaintances you’re friendly with when you run into each other, but who you never see otherwise.
    • People at work or in your classes who you get along with.
    • Friends of people you know who you’ve gotten along with in the past.
    • Someone who has shown an interest in being your friend but you never really took up the offer.
    • People you very occasionally hang out with, who you could see more often.
     • Friends you’ve gradually lost contact with who you could get back in touch with.
     • For some people, cousins who are close toyour age.Meet some new peopleGetting more out of your current relationships can go a long way, but it doesn’t always work.
Sometimes you’re at a point where you need to meet entirely new people.
Not having easy access to potential new friends is a big barrier for many people in creating a social circle. Overall, I’d say the easiest things to do are:
      •Put yourself in a situation where lots of potential friends are around, and you naturally have to get to know them through your day-to-day interactions. Work and school are the two big ones.
      •Meet one or two good people and then getting to know all their friends. If you hang out with fifteen people, you shouldn’t have to have met them all individually.
       •Get into hobbies or communities where you’ll naturally meet a lot of people, ones you already have something common with and a built-in activity/conversation opportunity to do with them.Overall, meeting new people may require making an effort to pull out of your day-to-day routine.
If most of your hobbies are solitary you might also need to add some more people-oriented ones to the mix.
Also, the easiest way to naturally meet a lot of people is just to live a full, interesting life and run into lots of potential friends as a side effect.
Once you’re in a situation with some prospective friends around, you need to strike up conversations and try to get to know them.
You won’t form a connection with everyone you interact with, but if you chat to enough people you’ll find you like and get along pretty well with some of them.
Once you’ve done that you could say you’re now at the Friendly Acquaintance stage, or that they’re context-specific contacts (e.g., work “friends”).
2. Invite potential friends to do something with you
Once you’ve met those people you seem to be clicking with, ask them to hang out and do something outside of the situation you met them in. This is the most important step in my experience.
You can meet all the people you want, and they can think you’re great, but if you don’t take any actions to do something with them in the future, then you won’t form many new relationships. People will stay as the guy you talk to in class, or the girl you chat to at work in the break room.
This seems basic, but lonelier people often hit a wall here.
There may be someone they joke around with at work, or chat to in one of their classes, but they won’t take the stepof inviting them out and taking the relationship to the next level, and beyond the acquaintance stage.
If you’re on the shyer side, you might be a little hesitant to invite people out. While it is a little scary at first, and there is some risk of rejection, it’s fairly easy to get used to.
It’s not nearly as bad as asking someone out on a date, for example.
Depending on how you met them, you may invite someone to hang out fairly quickly or wait a few weeks.
For example, if a friend brings one of their buddies along to have drinks with you one day, and you spent four hours together and hit it off from the start, you may be totally comfortable asking them to hang out again right away.
On the other hand, if you seem to mesh with someone at your job, but can only have short conversations with them here and there, it may be a month before you feel ready to invite them out.
Make a habit of getting people’s contact informationIt’s a good idea to get into the habit of getting people’s contact info fairly early.
You may meet someone interesting, but youcan never assume you’re going to see them around again anytime soon. Ask for their phone number or email address, or see if they’re on Facebook. That way if an opportunity to get together comes up, they’ll be easy to reach.
Also, if they have your info, then they can get a hold of you if they want to invite you to something.
Have a basic grasp of how to make plans.
To hang out with someone you’ve got to plan it. Sometimes the process is straightforward.
You ask them if they want do something, they agree, and you set a time and place.
At other times trying to nail down a plan can be tedious and unpredictable, especially when more than one other person is involved. It helps to accept that this is just an area where there’salways going to be an amount of uncertainty, and you can’t control everything.
If inviting people out and arranging plans allseems like a big hassle, it also probably feels that way for everyone else at times.
They shouldn’t always have to step up and organize things for you.
Do some of the lifting yourself when you need to.
Do your best to accept every invitationOf course, making your own plans is important, but if someone asks you to hang out, then that’s even better.
If someone invites you to do something, then you should go.
Why turn down a free chance to get out there with people? When you’ve got more friends and different options competing for your time you can be more choosy.
If you’re more of a shy or solitary person it’seasy to mull over the invitation and rationalize that it won’t be that fun and that you don’t want to go. Ignore those thoughts and go anyway.
You never can be sure how fun something will be until you show up and see how it is for yourself.
Sometimes you’ll have to inconvenience yourself for the sake of your social life. You may get invited to a movie you don’t particularly want to see, or someone might call you up on Friday evening as you’re about to go to bed, asking if you want to go out. Whenever you have two or more peoplein the equation, you’re going to have to compromise sometimes.
Again, just being out there outweighs these minor annoyances.Another thing to consider is that many people will stop inviting someone out to things if they decline too often.
They may have nothing against the person, but the next time they’re planning an event will think, “Paul never comes out when I ask him, so no point in letting him know this time really.”
3. Once you’ve got some budding friendships, keep in touch, keep hanging out, and let the relationship grow.
It’s one thing to hang out with someone once, or only occasionally.
You could consider them a friend of sorts at that point.
For that particular person maybe that’s all you need in a relationship with them, someone you’re casually friendly with and who you see every now and then.
However, for someone to become a closer, more regular friend you need hang out fairly often,keep in touch, enjoy good times together, and get to know each other on a deeper level.
You won’t have the compatibility to dothis with everyone, but over time you shouldbe able to build a tighter relationship with some of the people you meet.
4. Repeat the above steps more often to make more friends
If you join one new club, hit it off with three people there, and end up hanging out with two of them long term, then you’ve made two new friends.
If you stop there then that’s all you’ll have.
If week after week you’re coming up with new ways to meet people, and then following up and attendinglots of get togethers, then you’ll have a pile of friends and acquaintances eventually.
It’s up to you when you feel like stopping.
There’s no law that says everyone has to have dozens of people in their social circle either.
Many people are perfectly happy only having a few really close relationships.
If you only have a couple of friends and decide you want more though, you can always get out there again.

Spotlight: How often do we interpret messages?

By Brown Ratemo
I may not know the meaning of the word ‘sorry’ but from others or the majority it may refer a  state of being regretful on an action.
‘Sorry ‘to some countries mean a totally different thing given that we either speak Mandarin, us English or British English.
‘Sorry’can be substituted with ‘apology’ depending on the context in which one is.
For those who have ever in the communication class may concur because according to the lectures of Media social Context, many of us perceive and encode the message differently through levels such as in the ;
      Reflective approach
In reflective approach, some may take the message the way it is and this may be done so according to the level of one’s social status.  I.e ‘Africans are monkeys’ someone somewhere might interprete the way it is by accepting so.

        Intentional approach
In the intention approach we tend to interpret the message giving or finding the intention of the message or speaker ,what she /he meant by saying ; ‘Africans are monkeys, in real sense when  they aren’t.

       Constructivist approach
An approach where the message is encoded and interpreted in a way that it fits it’s meaning without considering any abusive and distortion of any kind. Like finding the real meaning of Africans being referred to as monkeys.

Hope we be in a state of encoding and interpreting our communication well.
     Blessed week

Spotlight: Will trained Journalists ever get jobs?

   By Brown Ratemo

This is not the first time for me  pinning down the corruption and unprofessionalism  of the media.
The Kenya’s journalism platform  has of late been wanting to say the least.
Cases of journalists who seem to have forgotten the very principle of journalism have emerged for the last five years ago.
The most recent example of journalistic neglect is the story of the late Mercy Bundi who committed suicide after an alleged social media relationship with a foreigner.
The story was on point,but it turns out that the picture they attached to the article belonged to someone else.
As i was taught,getting the right information from the very source of the incident or related witnesses is very acknowledgeable.
The problem with Kenyan journalist  is very minimal and can be returned to its course if the media houses revise the journalistic code of conduct.
Many of the journalists always lift or get the information from directly from websites like the Mirror, Daily Mail, Lifehack  and others without looking them if they are credible or not.
Many can bear witness that most of journalists in Kenyan media houses aren’t who they are.
And thus the independent, objective,fair and professional  way of informing the mass has,is and will always down there unless the media houses and its conglomerates do something.
There are so many trained, full baked journalists and communication experts out there without jobs but because of the ‘commercial’ thing of making money , popular comedians,musicians and celebrities get the chance of doing what they haven’t trained for this leading to unprofessional and light news and services from the media.
When will we get to be civilized organizations? Disseminate real information to the mass from real sources,channels and real personnel.
Below have alighted some of the reasons on why the journalistic platform using the dark.
Unprofessional personnel.
The truth of the matter is that in current times, if you want to be a journalist, you first have to work on being a celebrity. Proof of this can be seen in our media houses in Kenya where most of the presenters are either musicians, actors,comedians or divas.
How then do we expect them to know the journalistic codes of ethics when they have never stepped into a classroom, or received any journalistic training.
It is a wonder that they duplicate material from the real struggling professionals.
Money minded
It is said that money runs the world. The world of journalists seems not to be an exception.
Most reporters freelance for different media houses and have different deadlines to meet.
Think about it for a minute, what time do they have to research their stories?
A good piece will usually involve weighing of facts, contacting sources and verifying everything before actually putting it in print.
Today’s journalists are just too money minded to be bothered to go through the procedures.
Don’t care
The journalism profession is about passion for the truth and reporting of facts.
However, if journalism wasn’t really your first choice, you will find yourself just doing it to make a living. This is what the ‘celeb’ journalists are doing.
Perhaps it is time the real journalists take their place in newsrooms and radio Stations in Kenya.
Otherwise, journalism in Kenya is slowly dying and we will always be in a nonconfidence with the media.

Spotlight: Living to your Standards

By Brown Ratemo
What is Lifestyle?
Live A Lifestyle You Can Afford, one of the most stressful ways to live your life is to live above your means.
Many people spend more than they earn and get stressed on a daily basis about their financial situation. It is important to treat yourself, but the treat shouldn’t be a big expense.
Ask yourself these questions; what do I truly need to survive? Do I need this, or do I want it? Will it bring happiness into my life?
Be Aware Of Your Power And Take Responsibility
Many people blame others and the world around them for the bad things in their life, but the truth is you have full control of your life.
Only you can change the things in your life that you are unhappy about. You arein control of your life, and you hold all of the power.
Seize this power and make choices that will bring happiness into your life.
Find A New Job If Your Job Makes You Unhappy.
Your job doesn’t have to be the best part of your life, but if you dislike going into work you should look for a new job. This is how you spend 40 hours of your week, and your job should be more than just a way to pay the bills.
Ask yourself these questions; what could improve my job?
What am I looking for in a job?
Do I need to improve my skills to find my perfect job?
Your outlook determines the way you see the world, so make sure you’re looking at a positive view of the world. Your mind has the power to make you see life negatively, or it has the power to inject positivity into every day.
Start to think more positive thoughts and you will notice both your mind set and your life changing and improving.
Start To Live A Healthy Life
For many people, being healthy is a big part of their happiness.
Respect your body and drink lots of water, eat fruit and vegetables, exercise and get a good night’s sleep.
All of these things will help you to feel happier and more proactive.
Follow Your Passion
You know yourself better than anyone else, so you know what direction your life should be following.
Listen to your heart and pick up hobbies that make your soul sing.
Be Honest And Learn To Say No
A big part of having self-respect is being able to say no to others. While it is a great feeling to help others out, it is important you are not being a push over.
Say yes to others when you genuinely want to help, but don’t put your own life on hold.
Throw Away Social Norms
Many people live their life following social standards because they believe it is the safest choice, but they are unhappy.
Take command of your life by doing whatever makes you happy, rather than doing what you feel like you should be doing.
Be proud of yourself and stand out!
Do What Makes You Happy
If you want to do something that you think will make you happy, do it – don’t let fear of failure put you off.
Fear can be a prison that stops you from finding happiness,so take a chance and see what happens without worrying too much about the outcome. Life is for living!

So get injected with this…..
1. All men are not the same.
2. It is not all men that cheat on their spouses.
3. Some men don’t have time for women.
4. It is not all men that like women.
5. What a man needs from his woman is respect. Just respect and obey him. He will love and take care of you.
6. Sex cannot make a man love you. If you like give him sex everyday, if he doesn’t love you, he doesn’t love you.
7. If you want a man to love and take care of you, treat him like a baby. Pet him.
8. Men hate a nagging wife.
9. Allow him to be in charge of the house. Allow him to head the family. Do not control him.
10. Do not try to use sex to capture his heart. It will not work.
Cook delicious food, be obedient to him, be submissive. You will capture his heart.

Deadly habits by Nairobi Touts

By Brown Ratemo
As human beings living in a third world era,we are in such away that our behavior differ from the past beings who lived in the same planet as we.
Philosophically, we were born with     a natural sense of knowing the good and bad,but after experiencing some changes,our minds were corrupted and never blame the western culture because it’s not a contributor of what we go through in our daily existence.
So many behaviours and bad doings are being happening and to divert form them maybe would be a disaster or a God sent angel diverter.
This has come into my nerves to my everyday commuting routine where some behaviours need be changed.I know most of us don’thave personal vehicles that will make us feel comfortable as we journey from one point to another but I bet soon we will own one.For those like i who usePSVs have in way experinced some of thefollowing behaviours from the drivers and conductors.
Loud Music in PSVs
I ever heard NEMA terming sound as the most abused environmental factor and it did restrictit.
ThePublic service vehicles haven’t seen or rather checked in for the law instead they are in a total mess of this.
I can’t be wrong to saymost or all matatus aremounted with ‘heavy’ speakers where the loud music emanates from.
Most notorious routes are; Westlands ,Rongai,Thika superhighway, Langata, Umoja,Kayole,mlolongo ,Embakasi and South C.
Matatus in this routes pump up the volume of their systems that will make the eardrum to burst out.
It is difficult even to make or receive a call.
Playing Vernacular music
Yes,we know and understand that you wanna be yourself tribally,and you didn’t step in a class and if you did, things went like wind and you don’t want to hear any musicin English or kiswahili but a vernacular mugithi,kanungo, embarambamba and others.In PSVs matatus,there are like 42 tribes and queing a particular music allied to a particular tribe absolutely unacceptable.
Play the music for all maybe zilizopendwa and gospel will do.
Use of abusive language
Eastlando routes notorious for this.
Matatus bound to eastlands areas like Kayole,hillocks,Buruburu,Lungalunga,mlolongo and its environs are victims of the behaviours.
This happens when one needs to be given back their ‘change’.
The behaviour by conductors of not giving back customers money after a deduction leads to exchange of abusive words.
This extends to customers or commuters who give a five hundred or a thousand shillings noteto a conductor to deduct Sh. 30,Sh.50asa commuting fare.
Bad Odour
They say cleanliness is second to God ,but I sometimes wonder if those who are dirty and stenchy are of satan’s caliper.
Philosophically, I disqualify the thought and conclude that be it smart or dirty,all recites the most high image and likeness.
This brings us to the fact that many of the drivers and conductors of matatus bound to ‘ñ.mmmiii’ slums fumes out a bad and stenchy Odour when they talk.
I once sat next to a door where touts usually hang, as he talked something thudson my face , guess what?……….Yes, that is what I mean. I know some of the management read my posts and I ask you extend the message to all touts and drivers forthe betterment of the transport sector and to customers.
Touts and drivers need be supplied with sacco uniforms like it’s trending in other matatu associations.
Matatu associations and its management should take charge of what is happening in the transport sector and  change the nasty behaviours being portrayed by their employees.

Awkward habits of Nairobi Ladies

image

      By Brown Ratemo

I think you’ve ever experienced awkward behaviours possesed by today’s ladies.
Have an issue with the way our sisters from another parents conducts themselves in many levels.
There is this rampant habit fashioned where the very moment you enter into the matatu and sit next to lady and you look ‘good’ an interview emerges from nowhere.
You will hear ” hi pal,you look good and flashy,by the way where are you going?
In really sense you both in a matatu that is bound to town or any other place you commuting to.
Surprisingly, she goes further asking for what most of you know and ask when you meet someone for the first time.
It’sa habit that need to seize because one day you will ask and time the wrong person who will shut your big mouth.
Secondly, there is this thing that everyone does but not in an enclosed area but if you have or had to do it, then you there is a way of doing it courteously.
You sit next to a person preferably a lady who I don’t know has a malady that if she is not chewing ‘cud’ she will die, a habit that many ladies fall into victim.
Recently a bus bound to town from westlands, I entered a matatu and sat next to a lady. Knowingly what she was doing,picked up double mint chewing gun from his pouch and set it to a  ‘chewing machine’ only for a reason that am sure of she was up to,this habit of protruding a balloon like thing from the mouth after a chewing a gum is immoral and STOP it.
Thirdly, I think ladies and Mamas need to style on this,why do you make yourself look like a zombie who has just concluded sucking human blood?The lipstick thing is trending mostly on all female ages, yes anyway you need to look beautiful and presentable but not to exaggerate on make -ups that to some people they even make them ugly.
Dress you make-up responsibly and try not to offend any one because I saw a guy who tainted himself from the lipstick from his girl in the name of kissing.
Lastly, some minor habits need to be taken to their level of managing them. You ever sat next to a person somewhere and suddenly he/she shots pretending not to be the one? Yes, remind the person it is normal but to do it in an intended way. And for those who doesn’t close their mouth when yarning or doing it correctly should seek advice.
Hope and trust that my sisters have got the meaning of this writing and seek to change course.

Spotlight: How exposure will keep you ahead of the pack

Life is a daring adventure, or nothing. The extent to which a person dares life depends on the depth of exposure they have had in the course of their life, because exposure defines what is possible and what is probable. Exposure informs the human mind of the untapped possibilities in his field of endeavour.

Nothing in the world pushes back the boundaries of impossibilities like exposure. Exposure is like a map that shows you how much territory is available out there for you to conquer. Apart from education, the other thing that a parent can give to a child is exposure.

Apart from all the knowledge you may have acquired over time in your life, the greatest favour you can do to yourself as a human being is to expose yourself to a vibrant world that epitomises multiple possibilities that exist out there in the universe.
I read somewhere that exposure and experience are all that counts in life. By the way, do you know that exposure is more powerful than formal education? This is because of the fact that exposure carries within itself so much educational value, but education may not necessary always give you exposure to the real stuff of life.

With time and age, I came to understand that behind every beautiful thing in the world, there is some sort of exposure. You name it. No greatness stands alone. Behind it silently stands exposure. No wall is too high for a human mind that has been exposed to a world of infinite possibilities.

At one point in his life, Bill Gates, for long the richest man in the world, admitted that exposure from a young age to the realities of the world is a super bigger.

If you are familiar with Bill Gates’ biography, you will understand that the reason he was such a genius from a very young age, the reason he was able to achieve at a very young age what people double his age could only dream of, was the fact that he was exposed to the computer world from a very young age.

This while his peers were busy pursuing traditional interests, those days when computer technology was something very new and very bizarre.

If you have read The Outliers by Gladwell Malcolm, you will understand exactly what I mean by this. From high school, Bill Gates got real-time exposure to computer technology when other kids were in the fields playing traditional children’s games. His early exposure to the computer set him aside from his peers and placed him above and ahead of his contemporaries. This is exactly what exposure does to us. It makes us different.

 We view the world from unfamiliar angles and believe in things that others cannot even afford to imagine. We see beyond and above reality. Whenever we face impossibility, we know at the back of our minds that somewhere, sometime, someone faced the same challenges and somehow managed to overcome them.

Exposure makes us confident in risky situations, for the simple reason that we know it is possible to take a big risk and survive, or make it to the other side. This is because precedents have been set by individuals who took even greater risks and eventually made it.

Exposure also opens our minds to a new world that we never thought existed. It makes an individual a possibility thinker.
