Sierra Leone: 51 Years Later

Posted by Rujizzle on April 27, 2012 at 3:15 PM Comments comments (0)

The Bulom people were thought to have been the earliest inhabitants of Sierra Leone, followed by the Mende and Temne peoples in the 15th century and thereafter the Fulani. The Portuguese were the first Europeans to explore the land; the name Sierra Leone is derived form the Portuguese word "Sierra Lyoa" meaning "lion mountain" coined by Portuguese sailor, Pedro Da Cintra, due to the plateux and shape of the land. Mangrove swamps lie along the coast, with wooded ...

Women and Autism

Posted by Rujizzle on April 23, 2012 at 2:05 PM Comments comments (0)

The perception of autism as being a disease that's a function of "an extreme male brain," as one expert put it recently, makes it harder to help autistic girls. As Liane Holliday Willey, who has Asperger's and is the author of "Pretending to be Normal: Living With Asperger's Syndrome," put it, "Females are grossly underdiagnosed with autism. We do not 'present' as loudly as boys do."

Spring semester is quickly coming to an end, of course. As a student, these are the times that one has multiple emotions: excitement for summer break/vacations, sadness due to separation from friends, hopelessness due to weather change, and also that mini-heart attack of final exams approaching and thinking that you've learned nothing all semester/year-long. There are many more that are also unmentioned. These are the times that all the love an...

Don't judge me, before you know me!

Posted by Rujizzle on April 5, 2012 at 4:10 PM Comments comments (0)

A year ago, I wrote an entry detailing the reasons why autism awareness is dear to my heart. In this entry, rather than saying much about why I care, I'd like to showcase some individuals with autism in a series of videos. In one of the videos below, a boy stated "don't judge me before you know me." That really resonated to me, and that is one of the reasons why I find ...

Part 1: The Mind-Set of a man

Chapter 1: What Drives Men

In this chapter, Harvey talks about the drive of men and they are: "his title (who he is), how he gets that title (what he does), and the reward he gets for the effort (how much he makes). These three things make up the basic ...

In my opinion: Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man

Posted by Rujizzle on April 3, 2012 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)

One of my resolutions for this year and beyond is to read more books to educate myself beyond topics that are of interest to me. So far, I've been doing well in reading the Bible more than usual. But not very successful with other books. So in order to keep up with my resolution, I've decided to write reviews for each book I read; this will be my personal incentive. Also, there may be some people that would have interest in what I have to say.

It is NOT your fault

You DIDN'T ask for it

You DIDN'T wear the wrong outfit

You DIDN'T deserve it

It's OKAY to walk by yourself at any time and/or anywhere

That's NOT funny!

Posted by Rujizzle on March 24, 2012 at 10:20 PM Comments comments (0)

There's been something I've been wanting to write about for the longest, but just haven't had the time and focus to do so. BUT I can finally do it now! It has to do with people that find humor in certain topics but in return is offensive to others, also those that make silly remarks and not think about the repercussions of their comments. As one gets older, I believe that the mature thing to do is be wise about your comments and choose your words wisely. Yes, I support...

Label me!

A conversation I've had a few times with friends and acquaintances is how I can get more audience with this website and my social networks to read my posts on advice and life adventures. My regular response is that it does not matter and whoever the message must be conveyed to, will get it at some point. Yes, I know I could put more work into getting the word out there with a few tricks, but I believe that when one needs knowledge, they must seek it.

Start seeing...GREEN!

Three months ago, I watched a live Youtube stream for World AIDS Day 2011, sponsored by One Campaign. During one of the panel discussions with advocates for this day, Bono (U2 singer) mentioned that Africa has a bright future, and we should ask countries like China about this, because they see it and that is why they are going there more than ever now. Although I do not remember w...
