So I guess I’m going to just plug away at these as a I can. Graduate School takes all of my writing and pulls it from this periodical and my budding novel.

Here’s some things to take a look at:

When I do have any down time, I’m on this right here. I grew up on the classic and this show is excellent. Give it a spin.

Based on a book I never got around to, this Nextflix original had high hopes from me. I’d love to get ya’lls comments the film. Right now it’s sitting at a 7/10 for me.

That’s what I have for ya’ll! See y’all soon!

Hey y’all.  

 

It has been been a busy month for me; moved into a new apartment, started graduate school, began the last few chapters of my book... it’s an exciting time, I think. 

 

In the midst of those changes, I’ve still been able to read and watch some really cool things, so here’s what I’ve got: 

I’ve spoken often with friends about what’s the myriad of activities between China and many African nations.  

 

Zambia is one of the most recent to find itself in a familiar predicament.

If you’re not familiar, China has been pumping a LOT of money into Africa for quite some time now. All types of loans and investments, with the promise that it’s more business and philanthropy than modern-day colonialism. 

 

Right now, I think it’s fair to call it very concerning in the least.  

 

I also just just recently finished Ozark. I’ll assert it’s one of the most subtly intense shows out there right now and it is easily one of the best sequel seasons you can find. Check it out.

Took a few weeks of to deal with a few personal matters, but I'm back now!

I've spent a few weeks off of social media to get my mind together and I've been easing myself back in to all the hustle and bustle. Until I get all my thoughts together, here's weird and cool series on Netflix that I've been watching. It's called The Hollow.

Holy crap, read this article. 

"The latest example of this is an “ethnicity detection” algorithm marketed by Moscow-based NtechLab as an “upcoming feature” to the facial recognition technology it sells. The new algorithm which promises to accurately look at images of people and determine their ethnic background; an image that was on the site, but has since been removed due to public backlash, showed classifications like “European,” “African,” and “Arabic.” While the image has been removed, ethnicity recognition is still listed as an upcoming product on the NtechLab site."

And another one...

Uganda is worried about the number of Chinese men marrying their women

"Contractors, petty traders, investors, and entrepreneurs from China have been pouring into Uganda for the past decade. China is a top investor in the east African country, accounting for as much as half of total foreign investment between 2014 and 2015, according to the Uganda Investment Authority.

But according to Ugandan immigration officials, there’s one major downside: an increasing number of Chinese men are marrying Ugandan women to gain residency and continue their business interests in the country."

Also, reading Blink again.

 

Thanks y'all. Big stuff happening soon.
