Learning, unlearning and relearning — New media comes to the rescue

When women come together and talk business

Violence against Men: Who will speak for the men?

Tuesday September 17, 2013 was not a normal day in the Nigerian House of Representatives as several Honorable Members decided to embrace a free for all fight. The astonishing occurrence was not that this happened as it has somewhat become a norm; it was that there was a recorded account of violence against men in Nigeria. A seemingly furious female [...]

In the course of snatching several moments out of my extremely busy weekday schedule to learn and effectively using my weekends to embrace various forms of street photography, I can actually say that this is a hobby that might [...]

I went window shopping, and other not-exactly related stories
