I live n Kenya and I am surprised at some of these comments - I would like to show you pictures where I live where people work out of shacks and out side the bigger towns -infrastructure esp is just not there. CArs in KEnya are very expensive adn there are rules ot stop bringing imports in .OLd recks are 5000 dollars to keep poor people off the road. I wanted to use my phone the other day ran out of credit and 20 africans I worked with had phones but no credit -like most! The drivers etc are there to smoke all the money out of those with money and the poor stay poor
you can not remove color when it was color why the original people were oppressed to begin with. So always let's start with facts. because because that will dictate the direction of the topic. we use all the technology that we don't make ourselves. watch out for the next take over of africa. there is a movement my people to get them out of our land and remove ourselves from neo colonialism
Thank you Marek,
I really appreciate all what you have done in my country, and my people.
How are wish many westerns would visit and see for themselves.
Africa, will come alive again especially my country "Nigeria "
Bless you and take care wish to met you and Rob minds together. 😙😙😙😙.
Are you sure his white? l hope my eyes are not playing tricks with me, because for queen Elizabeth and british people all they do is to promote tribal wars so that shell will be busy stealing free oil while their self appointed lifeless leader called buhari lies in their hospitals in London for eye and brain damages.
I am from Douala, Cameroon and the city is very busy day and night. Not to mention yaounde the capital. Most businesses are small scale and owned by nationals. Almost everyone has a mobile phone bank accont.
he is right. Iv seen a lot of very well "developed" systems in Africa in comparison to similar systems in so called developed countries.
The real KILLER of Africa is the cancer of Corruption. If they can cure that, I promise, Africa will rise like uv never seen it before.
"African" am pulling your ears!!! shine your eyes and have value for your real asset (land and God given resources) because time is coming when we will be able to talk and negotiate not be told what to do.
Africa doesn't want charity, Africa needs business. Imagine if EU or the US markets were open to African produce. Farmers would take their kids to school and pay tuition fee themselves without EU grants. Oh also you'll be buying groceries at a tenth the price you are buying it at now in Europe.
Why!!!!!!!!!!! Because they are the CHOSEN CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH. I AM!!! OUR FATHER🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾😊😊😊😊😂😂😂😂🤓🤓🤓🤓🤓🤓🤓🤓🤓 Knowledge is POWER.... PLEASE STOP BRING WILLINGLY BLIND TO THE FACT .... IT'S ALMOST OVER
What ll need in africa is for govt to provide enabling environment, everything ll fall into place. Our leaders should stp junketing all over d Europe and Asia looking for foreign investors,, they ll beg to come if we put our house in order
When I first saw the title of his presentation, I thought he was African but is not. I was really offended by his title. I'm sure he had a lot of good pointers but I tuned out soon as I found out he wasn't African.
Jesus Christ is love you guys come back to Jesus Christ he is Lord And king
John 14 (KJV) - ዮሃንስ
6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.John 3 (KJV) - ዮሃንስ
15: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17: For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18: He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
You need to visit South Africa, maybe you will change your statistics around !!
South African non blacks live in absolute fear because of crime!
My opinion is that most South African blacks will take a thousand years to grow tails and they still wont be half as smart as donkeys, that's how backward they are !!
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
