Take a bus to Karo Karungi and you will know why it was called that, go north to the plains of Kidepo Valley National Park or looking for the sunset in Murchsion falls National Park, have you stopped at the old train station next to the post office to watch the sunset with a friend or a lover as the abandoned train carriages lie below you in the dark while you bathe in the glow from the platform? (Platform 9 and three quarters wouldn’t hold a candle to that experience). Yes we are the Pearl in Africa’s crown and no one will ever…

(AllHipHop News) For the second time this month, rapper Rick Ross has been arrested in the state of Georgia. Ross (born William Roberts) was taken into custody last night by the Metro Atlanta Fugitive Task Force for outstanding warrants for aggravated assault.

WSB reports the “Stay Schemin'” rhymer got into an altercation with someone working on his Fayette County property. Ross is accused of pistol-whipping the man. He and his bodyguard were charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault, and aggravated battery.

Ross was arrested two weeks ago in Fayette County as well. The Maybach Music Group boss was booked on a misdemeanor marijuana charge. A police officer found the weed in Ross’ vehicle after stopping the Miami native for a tinted windows violation.

Hey eveery one

Its been a while, i have been up and down building on a number of thingds in my life. well the link above is to a podcast i host on a website i co own and co founded. I know what you are thinking, yess am into podcasts these days. I host the show every sunday @8pm, on Issues concerned with Ugandan HipHop.

My scarlet Pink arrival.

For a long time i have not been posting anything because i have had alot of breakdowns that kept me away from posting even a single word. But i want to say to you that i am back and fresher for i got my self a new wave of inspiration. Scarlet pink you may ask but its simply my facebook friend who i realised posts content for daily inspiration, worth reading. Thats why i chose to title this post in her names.

#throwback THURSDAY

Today i helplesslessly sat down thinking of what to write to the loyal readers and followers of this blog, in vain coming up with nothing. They say writing should come naturally, guess what “throw back Thursday” came in my mind. Its apopular club theme, bar and restaurant cliche and popular hashtag especially when giving back.
so what are you throwing back? you may ask! Well i made up my mind to give this blog a new look and i stumbled into a theme “confit” which is a restaurant based theme. But i liked it so i applied it, as a self throwback. And also to welcome you int6 anew year. Well wishes have come late, dont worry you can still take them in. I also want to here frow you, for i got mixed up and this blog got shaky. “thats the price 4 having a heartbreak in the line of duty” ha ha” not so emotional though.
TIP:You might wanna go to any hangout today i recommend a bar and grill or restaurant: you may stumble into a throwback pliz follow me @NuveySHAWN On

Facebook Starts Showing Fewer Text Status Updates From Pages, More From Friends


Page administrators in other words have to up their text updates.

Facebook has just announced a slight tweak to the Newsfeed algorithm. The newest version of the Newsfeed will show fewer text-based status updates from Pages, but will serve more text-based status updates from users.

The good news for Pages administrators is that Facebook will probably be distributing more status updates from Pages that are media- or link-based, as opposed to text-based.

According to a blog post, Facebook learned through testing that, the more simple, text-only status updates people see, the more they share. In fact, the initial test resulted in an average of 9 million more status updates written every day.

However, a text-only status update from Pages didn’t yield the same result as text status updates from regular users. Knowing this, Facebook has decided to pull back on text updates from Pages.

So what should Page administrators do to make up for the traffic?

Aside from the obvious…
