More Rain in Namibia, Means More Human and Animal Babies, for Namibia?

It’s the middle or nearly end of April, which is almost Winter season in Namibia, but it’s still raining nonstop; and I’m loving this weather. It has even recently made a headline news on CNN, and the CNN Weather Forecast predicts that there’s more rain to come in Namibia.

Now, amid the flood and its devastating effect in the Northern Namibia; there’s some good news for this rain, which is;

Generally, Namibia is an arid desert-like dry country; however, this year’s rain is poised to help change that. As it keeps raining, more and more wild animals and plants will grow and evolve faster.

That’s; the plants and trees will grow bigger and taller as they compete for the best sunlight spots, and their roots will keep growing deeper and deeper into the ground to reach the underground rivers for more water and nutrients. Hence the trees and plants in Namibia will now likely turn Namibia into a rain forest country faster than perhaps previously ever expected or imagined for that matter.

And as the rain continues to pour down; then trees and plants will continue to grow bigger and taller, so as wild animals. They now have more water and food, and when there’s more food for them, so as their mating activities are increasing – hence more baby animals and baby birds in just a few months.

It’s a new ecosystem in the making; more plants, more animals, more birds, and even new animals and birds from elsewhere could migrate to Namibia, hence perhaps more new animal and bird species could be found in Namibia in years to come.

Now, amid the devastating effects from the flood in the North; the rain tends to make more people want to stay in bed longer; and as more and more people stay in their beds, so as more sexual activities among humans in Namibia will increase as well; and so as HIV and STDs. Thus, in about 8 – 10 months, Namibia could experience more human babies; hence an exponential eruption of population increase could take place in Namibia, or perhaps more HIV and STDs infections if they don’t protect themselves better.

All of these could simply mean more unexpected government spending in social welfare programs and services, but not only for humans this time, but also for animals and birds.

And this would cause to change the entire Namibia’s preset National Development Plans and Fiscal Budget for the year 2011 – 2015.

However, above all of that; there’s good news due to the economic ripple effects from the Groot Town Center ecosystem, which when is fully implemented within 3 years, it will be able to aid the government in meeting its social welfare programs and services, more efficiently and perhaps not as much as it would have otherwise if it was never been implemented.

Or perhaps; God simply forgot to turn the rain off for Namibia? And if so, it could rain like this until the next rain season. Then Namibia certainly becomes like the US and Europe. Which is cool in a way.

How Chemistry Compatible Are You With Your Lover?

Here is a simple formula and scientific method to help you determine whether your relationship is favorably destined to happily last forever or cursed to the dead pool.

Simply collect the data, all the likes and dislikes, endogenous and exogenous variables, general things  that are directly and indirectly related to your lover, personal habits, career, and just about everything that you like (savory) and dislike (unsavory) about your lover. Write them all down on a piece of paper.

Then regress them by adding them all up, and then average them to get their mean value, and then factor them by dividing them. To get the factor value of what you like about your lover, divide your savory by the unsavory factor, and to get your unsavory, simply do the opposite, and multiply each factor by 100 to get their percentage value.

Now, what is the percentage value do you like and or dislike about your lover? If 10% is what you like about your lover and 90% is what you dislike him or her, then divide them; 0.1/0.9, which gives you a factor of 0.11.

How about if your savory is 90% and 10% is your unsavory? That’s, 0.9/0.1 = 0.9. So, the higher the factor, the more likely your relationship will last, but if your factor is lower, you may want to think twice about your relationship, as it may be headed for a brick wall.

If your savory factor is 0.01 or less, then you may not even want to try to make it work. But if your savory factor is 0.5 or higher, then drop the bucket and run to the chapel and tie that knot, as yours is a match made in, hmm… some silly formula I just made up – I gotcha!

But seriously, it works.

Making the Best Out of the Worst, Especially Right Now

Someone once told me that the start is always the easiest but is the end that counts the most. So, whatever it is that you are doing, people will always appreciate how you start, but will always remember how you finish.

Well, for me, it’s been a long journey trying to find my pitch, my niche, and I believe I found it now. Since August 2008, I’ve embarked on a project that seemed nearly impossible, in a crowded market economy. But I’ve always believed in myself, and the power of being creative, to find the best out of the worst, even when most of us may seem to be out of luck due to our current economy. But I believe the best is yet to come. I think I can truly say so, because being an economics student here at OSU, and in Spring 2010, I hope to start my PhD program in Economics, I strongly believe that our economy will turn around sooner than we think, and no matter where you are or whatever you are doing, you can make the best out of anything, especially right now.

I am a strong believer, always have been. I believe that each and every one of us have certain God given, unalienable gifts and talents, and it’s up to each and everyone of us to go all the way and explore how to maximize our potential in order to make our dreams come true.

In August 2008, my team and I started working on my new project, Welated (www.welated.com), and it seemed almost impossible making it and developing it to become an actual, viable entity with an actual business model that doesn’t just depend on paid ads like other social networking sites, and I have to say that, with God’s help, I think finally made it happen. Welated is now done, fully functional, and I am very excited about it. We started testing it on January 2009, under a certain code name, and over 8,000 people signed up within just two months, and that was amazing.

We’re now migrating the site from the testing alpha to beta mode, it is a combination of Facebook, MySpace, and Hi5.com, all in one. We combined all the cool tools you’ll find on most of your favorite social networking sites and place them in one easy-to-use Welated platform.

However, Welated has a creative twist to it, that’s, instead of simply offering traditional social networking tools, Welated offers an innovative platform that allows users to keep track of what their lovers are doing at any given time. That’s, a Welated user can instantly know if her or his wife/husband/boyfriend/girlfriend is being unfaithful and more, anywhere. I purposely founded Welated to help people learn more about each other’s dating history, interests, and activities, so that no one can ever say; I wish I only knew.

Please, take some time and check out Welated at www.welated.com, sign up, it’s free, and take a tour of the site, experiment with the tools on the site, and please let me know what you think. You can always delete your account at any time if you decide not to stay registered, and feel free to search for my name on the site and connect with me.

What Every Organism Wants: Sexual Selection

Yes, the title is an indicative to capture your attention. And, since you’all seem so tired and perhaps stressed out, well, we are now in “officially” a recession. Perhaps, an economic depression is next, but not soon or may be never, I hope.

So, I wanted to arouse your attention for a minute and entertain your curiosity. The following may rather be out of the box discussion, but we may as well have an interesting discussion, other than focusing on the news about job loss, layoffs, rise of unemployment, etc. So here it is.

What Every Organism Wants: Sexual Selection

This week, in my biological evolution and speciation class, we had an interesting discussion, a lecture from my professor, Dr. Taylor at Ohio State University, focusing on sexual selection. The subject was about mate choice between males and females for reproduction.

The question that Dr. Taylor posed was: “If sexual preference was not biological but a choice, then how did you make your choice?”

Now my question is this; if you are a man, did you hop from one man to the next, different men each time, any number of times, and then to a woman, different women each time, any number of times, testing your sexual preference?

Likewise, if you are woman, did you also hop from one woman to the next, different women any number of times, and then to a man, different men each time, any number of times to test and decide your sexual preference?

So, how did you decide your sexual preference?

New Site, Welated, Due to Spill the Beans on Your Love Life

In May 2007, I launched a patent pending data tool, RentersQ (www.rentersq.com), the most loved to hate rental history reporting site, which Business First of Columbus calls “… a tool for landlords to help take guesswork out of tenant screening”.

This year, I am launching a new site, Welated (www.welated.com), which is poised to be the site that you and everyone else in the world will have to check before you go on a date with anyone, anywhere.

In 2000, I launched InterCOL (www.intercol.net), which I thought was the best business history reporting site project ever, back then, and then in 2005, I launched Tip-Mart (www.tipmart.com), a patent pending online reverse auction site, a new site is coming in early 2009, and then RentersQ.

Since last year, I have also been developing Gatepedia (www.gatepedia.com), another patent pending innovative marketing utility platform, but this one is a huge project and will take at least another 10 months before it’s launched to the public.

Each time I work on a project, I always think that this is my best, but when I start to develop a new one, then I realize that this one is my best yet.

So, Welated is the social venue you’d love to hate, and you’d wish you can stop me now, so I don’t have to launch it. Because, no matter who you are or wherever you are, Welated is going to spill the beans on all your personal relationships and love life. The good thing is, it’s going to be a lot of fun…!

I have to stop here, because I am starting to reveal too much about Welated.

It’s is on, just stay tuned…!
