The Barbershop: Social Network|Topic: Cryptocurrency - Bitcoin

As long as black women need to get their hair "did", and black men need to get lined up, we will always come together in the "Shop" or around kitchen tables to share the latest news.  No matter how many social networks like Myspace, Facebook and Twitter spring up they will never replace Low tech media such as The Barbershop,The Beauty Salon & Kitchentalk.      On this video, Software and Mobile App developer Anari Sengbe, illustrates this point when after his days of disrupting Silicon Valley, he returns to the village to talk about cryptocurrency. I've been following this tech guru since he came up with the GoVote app that would allow volunteers to wait in line for others who couldn’t afford the long wait time to vote I was updating ads on my blog and I came across a story I "pressed" on him last year.    As you can tell, from the name of this blog, I look for interesting  "characters" and so I followed up with him on LinkedIn to find out the latest. 

Earlier this year, Anari Sengbe launched OWO (Yoruba-English translation: Money).  OWO.world is a digital platform that has a suite of applications from social to gaming with a twist that allows users and developers to earn/exchange cryptocurrency.   

I'm working my way up the learning curve to understand this digital currency, but I like the questions these brothers ask because when you teach you learn.  And Sengbe is able to answer these bitcoin questions in a way that s easy to understand.   

By the way, Gaming is included in the Trillion-dollar Media & Entertainment industry but I don't think the government did an assessment that includes bitcoin mining.   
My head is spinning trying to make sense of all this  but you only get old when you stop learning. 
 

FREE YOUR MIND FROM TOXIC ENERGY

FREE YOUR MIND FROM TOXIC ENERGY     http://kweenyakini.blogspot.com/2018/04/free-your-mind-from-toxic-energy.html     We must begin to let go of anyone and anything that does not serve our purpose if we want to achieve elevation.  This was one of the most important lessons that I had to learn through my journey.  Because I discovered that when I was holding on what I thought I needed, it was preventing me from finding what I truly needed.  I also found that our growth is born from our pain and that we have to morn our losses and then move on to our next level.  Because negative energy can not co-exist with positive energy therefore one must replace the other.  This means letting go of any toxic relationships personal or business in order to cleanse your environment.  This process will hurt, but it will also release you and allow your mind and spirit to rise.  Then you will begin to focus on the things that are meant for you and this is when you will find peace and true happiness.  There is an old proverb that says: “When one door closes another door will open”.  Ase’

How to Profit from the Underclass

The Black community who have nearly zero wealth but $1.5 trillion buying power keeps the U.S. economy afloat.    
Some have the belief,
Absolutely some of those tactical and strategical solutions require mental reprogramming and behavior modification.   The Black community didn’t create fiat money or its banking system.  Therefore, we're clueless when dealing with it.  The system terrorizes and traumatizes others, crushing them under the weight of insurmountable financial problems.   The former can be solved by education, while the latter would require reprogramming to alleviate ourselves of its pressures.   For example, many believe we derive our worth from our financial portfolio, our parents or where we were born.     Society programs us to believe what we own, who we can influence even our zip code determines our value.  Once we’re indoctrinated into that belief system; once we begin to equate our intrinsic value to tangibles such as assets, physical appearance, influence or anything outside of our control; we quickly travel downhill on a slippery slope.       For many of us, this is a way of life.  It is as natural as breathing.    We’ve been taught to seek outside acceptance, or even popularity, i.e., create an artificial demand for ourselves.  We will do anything to achieve it.  We'll pay for things we can’t afford to get the attention of people we don’t know, have a relationship with, or even like.   When we follow this path, we create demand for human-made products giving it value and thereby enriching its producer. Ironically, the value comes from the demand. Without demand, there would be no value.  Humans, however, are valuable whether or not there's a demand.      Looking for outside validation, or even valuation wouldn't be necessary if we recognize that we're invaluable from birth.   More on that later when we discuss remedies for financial pathology.   Some attention-seekers don't understand how attention derives its value or its purpose. So, they exchange it for money.  Others attempt to convert it into status. Once in demand, the goal for many is to gain an illusory higher ‘position’ in society.     Hollywood even has a rating system for a celebrity’s popularity and will pay according to the rating.      And as a society, we’ve agreed to this rating system as if it’s nature’s design.  Instead of what it is, an artificially created social stratification system.  In nature, there’s no such hierarchy only symbiosis and mutualism.   Every species has a role and carries out for the continued evolution of this planet.  
 
Our belief system should reflect what exists in nature.     Our innate abilities, talents, and Love at its apex are for this planet's growth, not its destruction.   It's inherent within the Black community or any indigenous people to know their role in nature.    We're here as sustainable support for nature and all that exists within.    Still, that knowledge conflicts with the members' need for acceptance.      Further, the natural system wouldn't benefit parasites who have learned how to thrive off the artificial system of selling attention-getting products.  Unfortunately, they have convinced us to bury our talents and abilities and instead trade our time for a pittance so we can pay twice the amount of our earnings for trinkets.     The price of human ingenuity is incalculable.     Meanwhile, the black community is financially-strapped because they work to get attention. Some will convert the attention into money to buy things they don’t need, tire of it and unfulfilled will self-destruct.     Others will use the attention currency, convert it to power then into money to maintain the social stratification system.     Of them, in whispers, we'll say, "so-and-so sold their soul."     For the rest, the tactical solution is to remember individual intrinsic value. Then we'll realize humans belong at a roundtable not in a pecking order.      But I digress.     There's a difference between how things are and how they should be. There's a difference between reality and belief.     Maybe our psychological challenges stem from overthinking this lopsided mixed economic system.    Therefore, a strategic solution is to understand that in democratic capitalism, money is a medium used in an exchange of goods and services.   The key is knowing the difference between price and cost.

Character Building

It all begins with the character.  The story has its genesis in the character. Without the character - there is no story.   

Whenever I'm having a problem writing fiction, ( or even in my own life)  I know I have to return to the protagonist. 

If she's fully developed then I have to concede that maybe she's in the wrong story.

Creative Minds Have the Power to Heal

https://kweenyakini.blogspot.com/   Creative Minds Have the Power to Heal   By:  Kween Yakini    Creative minds were born to be different For our purpose is to touch others with our light  And creative thinkers will continuously evolve Because we are the ones who make the others think And we usually have awareness of many things Because we always take notice of our surroundings So, our perspectives are constantly expanding We are inspired by things like moon lit nights And the beauty of the sun Creative minds are the music writers Because there is music in our souls And Art is the fuel that drives us Performing feels like church to us So, we give each other praise And we will face our fears  So that we can bare our souls  Even if it feels like our heart is about to bust out of our chest Because that is what we were meant to do Creative thinkers interpret their feelings  And recite their thoughts We are magnetic to other souls They feed off our energy Because there is force inside us Creative minds are unique spirits And we were made to heal souls

GOING BACK TO WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

GOING BACK TO WHERE IT ALL BEGAN   When I was a child I loved writing short stories because it felt like I was transporting my mind to another world.  And when I was a teenager I got involved in the Hip Hop Scene and I began writing verses and rhymes just for fun.  Then I stopped writing, and I tried doing all the things that I thought would bring me happiness like work, family, and so on.  But my creative energy always kept rising up inside me.  So, I tried doing Arts and craft, and small projects to keep my mind busy.  But I it didn’t have a true passion for any of those things.  Later in 2013 I got divorced, and eventually I started dating which is a whole other story, but let’s just say I learned a lot.   By 2015 I quit my job which I absolutely hated and I began feeling lost and unsure.  Until one day I started to write again as I did many years ago.   And I began to write every day.  I started out writing simple short poems and then they grew in length and then I began to write about my perception of life.  So, I decided to start a page on Facebook, and my page grew to over 11,000 likes.  I could not believe that this was because of me and my words.  But I continued writing until one day I decided to perform Spoken Word, which turned out to be one of the most profound experiences of my life. Now I have several platforms on social media and a Youtube Channel.  And today I am ready to speak about my journey and write about it because I am ready to manifest my dreams.  So, today I’m telling my story to whoever reads this because I feel like if I write it, then it becomes an affirmation.  And like the Beloved Luther Vandross used to sang it “A chair is still a chair even if no one’s sitting there”.  So, I may just be a chair but here I am.  Thanks for reading😊 Facebook                                                                    https://www.facebook.com/kweenyakinipoetry/                                                  https://www.facebook.com/kweenyakinisharran/?view_public_for=1576328289347392   Youtube Channel                  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCDoduDLKNn3vrpsXD0mc1g?view_as=public     Instagram                             https://www.instagram.com/kween_yakini/?hl=en

SanaTambo is here!

Good day all,  I wanted to accomplish a few things early two thousand and eighteen: make a video game utilizing some sort of Black cultural reference, sell it on a platform; I achieved it. SanaTambo which mean art puzzle is here; it is a rendition to nonograms, more commonly known in the usa as picross; the images one can create are versions to Adinkra from Ghana. To access it, you must use the Kobo App. If you want to test out whether you can utilize it, you can use the first entry in the SanaTambo series, which is free.  https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/sanatambo-adinkra    The process itself was very interesting. I will share that in my emailing list. If you want to join my email list, you can comment on here as a member or guest and we will connect.   SanaTambo Versions   English   https://www.kobo.com/pt/pt/ebook/sanatambo-adinkra-1 Français https://www.kobo.com/fr/fr/ebook/sanatambo-adinkra-3 Português https://www.kobo.com/pt/pt/ebook/sanatambo-adinkra-1 日本語 https://www.kobo.com/ja/ja/ebook/NNxdRbPVXT-g8GicV2IVSw  中文  https://www.kobo.com/zh/zh/ebook/sanatambo-adinkra-2      SanaTambo Example    I have created a system that allow me to make puzzles in the style to picross/nonogram/SanaTambo .

Being a Black Girl

BEING A BLACK GIRL By:  Kween Yakini   Please don’t tell her that she’s too pretty to be a Black Girl
Don’t let her think that life would be better 
     if she wasn’t so Black
Now I even hear some Africans bleach their skin
     because they think Dark skin is wack
Can you imagine that?
I just don’t understand why some Black Girls 
     don’t love being Black 
And why some would rather lighten their complexion
     cause they want to be anything other than dark black
It’s sad that they should ever learn to think like that
     and sometimes I just want to give them a little smack
How did so many of us get so off track? 
I think most of you know the answer to that
But now it’s time for us to praise our young girls 
Time to help them get their confidence back
Cause all Black Girls are Lit and that is a #Fact!

My Quote of the Night: Wind

Love is truly like the wind. You can't see it, yet you feel it against your skin as though you are constantly walking with a gentle breeze across your face. When a woman is in love... that's when stuff becomes completely amazing. She is never so fascinating. She gleams kaleidoscopic like diamonds under sunlight. Her smile, so childlike as though keeping a secret, could stop your heart. I saw a woman in love once and the only thing I could think of is how could any man wanna take that away from her. How could the man she loves ever risk losing sight of that.

My Morning Dose (Hot For Teacher)

Yesterday I started a list of the things you wouldn't find on a school curriculum. They don't teach you how to love a woman, how to make her smile, how to keep her laughing even when she doesn't find you funny. They don't teach you how to scale back when you and that same woman just don't see eye to eye on a peaceful resolution. They don't teach you how to practice patience. They don't teach you how to walk away nor do they teach you that it isn't necessarily important to win every fight. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind. They don't teach you what to say to someone who's heart you broken. They don't have a book that explains how holding her hand can be immensely powerful. Nope, there isn't a study guide that gives you, in great detail, instructions on how to kiss her lips as though the world was ending. You see, I began to love you simply, desperately, without actually knowing how, despite proper training. And the more I loved you the more I began to understand that you, from day one, have taught me all I needed to know. I have become a straight A student, honor roll, on the dean's list, for you have taught me everything about love. You have been my greatest teacher. And for that... I am extremely thankful. XOXO

My Quote of the Night

(These Things) to feel, to give, to take, to laugh crazily, to get lost absentmindedly, to be found, or to dance, to crave and to lust, to cry out profoundly, to kiss ever so softly is to be very unapologetically human. I'm hoping to change your perception, hoping to dissuade you of this constant delusion that you are not worthy of love. You do not have to change what you want or accept less from anyone anymore. Let those people who refuse to maintain love, envy you for finding and accepting someone that takes you exactly the way you are. Get swept off your feet on purpose.

Chivalry Sun

Some acts are so innocently intimate that you can't help but to perform them with pride. For example... I relish the feeling of removing her coat and placing it across my arm. It feels as though I just unwrapped my greatest gift in front of the entire world. She shines brighter than the sun at that moment, her smile is indescribably priceless at that moment. And at the end of the date, when I go to place her coat back on, I sneak a forehead kiss to make this simple, effortless, painless act, a moment she will not easily forget. This is what makes chivalry fun. This is what makes love so important.

10 Top Tips on How to Complete a Job Application Form

Why Do Employers Request an Application Form Instead of a Resume?   I don’t think I have ever come across anyone who enjoys filling out a job application form – I’m not a fan, myself! Unfortunately, more and more employers are using these as part as their recruitment process as an alternative to CVs and resumes, so it’s important that you fill them out correctly.   Employers tend to favour application forms over CVs or resumes as they create uniformity, so that each applicant completes the same information requests. Many employers use the opportunity to ask questions on the form, which they use as a guide to the competency of each candidate in relation to the role. More on this later. Each box and request for information should be fully completed, however, I would question whether you should fill in personal details, such as your age and other personal information that could potentially be used to discriminate against you…but, hey, that’s another hub!   Here are my top ten tips to complete a job application form so that you maximise your chances of securing a job interview.   1. Take Your Time Take your time when filling out a job application. This is no time to rush. It is much better to send in one great quality application form rather than fire out lots of messy or incomplete ones. Quality over quantity is the key to your success. You only need one great application that will get you the one interview and ultimately a job offer. Read through the form first, so that you know all the details that are required and read the small print. If it is a request that you write in black ink, then write in black ink! If you write with a blue pen, your application may be rejected and you will have wasted your time. If you are hand writing the application form, then ensure you take your time over it, so that your handwriting is neat, tidy and legible.
2. Write in Block Capitals Write in block capital letters unless otherwise stated. It will be much easier for the hiring manager to read. Sometimes the boxes on application forms are really small, so capital letters will make it easier for you to squeeze your text in.   3. Use Your CV or Resume Don't try to reinvent the wheel. Use the information that you already have on your CV or resume and transfer it across to the application form. If you are using an online version, you should be able to copy and paste the information. If you are hand writing it, just copy the relevant information.   4. Answering Questions If there are any specific question on the application form, make sure you take your time and really think about your answers. You’ll be surprised how many candidates don’t. Keep your answers succinct and to the point. Application forms often include hypothetical questions, for example, "What would you do if a customer complained?" to establish how you would react in certain situations that you may or may not have dealt with in the past. The may also include competency based questions to determine how able you are to do the new job based on your past experiences. There questions usually start with "Tell me about a time when..." or "Give me an example of..." For competency based questions, it is important that your answers include real life scenarios where you can give a good quality description of a past experience in the work place. If you are asked a question on the application form that you have had no prior experience, then say so. Don't just leave it blank. A trick is to include an example of what you would do if you were to encounter that particular situation.   5. Work History Details Work History should only go back 10 years maximum unless otherwise stated. Any further back than 10 years is unlikely to be relevant to today's job market. It's much better to focus on your most recent positions that can show the new employer that you have transferable skills. That will make you more valuable to them compared to someone who has a lengthy career history. It’s OK to use a separate piece of paper if you need more space rather than trying to squeeze in illegible text. Always think about the reader. If he or she is struggling to read your application form, they may reject it and move onto the next person.   6. Reasons for Leaving If there is a section asking for your reasons for leaving your previous roles, keep your answers brief ie. Career progression, end of contract, contract ended (if you were fired!), relocation and so on. Avoid being ambiguous by stating personal reasons or private as it may look like you have something to hide. There's no need to go into great detail here. One or two words will suffice. Wait until you are sitting in front of the interviewer before you give a full description; or confessional!   7. Salary Salary requirements may be asked for. In this instance, make sure that you have researched the role and know the average salary range of similar positions. Realistically state a range that you require that won’t price you out of the market or undersell your skills. You may be asked for your prior salaries. If this is the case, don't just list the monetary figure of Platinum Play Reviews . Make sure you include the whole compensation package and its worth. For example, include company car, mobile phone, health insurance and any other perk of the job. If you don't include these, you may receive a lower offer if you are successful in landing the role.   8. Additional Information Ensure you complete the boxes that ask for additional information or general comments. Use the opportunity to market your skills and experience. You can put your personal profile in these sections and it is fine to use an additional sheet of paper if you have more to say, but make sure you don't waffle. You are the product here, so sell yourself accordingly by using the job description to seek out the main qualities and experience the employer is looking for and state how you meet this criteria in the comments box. Remember that when sending an application form, the employer won't have the opportunity to view your CV or resume, so make sure you have included all the details on the form in some way, shape or form.   9. Proof Read Proof read your application form over and over again as though your life depends on it. Ask a friend to help. A fresh pair of eyes may pick up mistakes you have missed.   10. Ask For Help It may be a good idea to ask someone to help you fill out the application form, particularly if you find some of the questions or requirements a bit tricky. Do you have any friends or family who are managers?   If anything on the application form is confusing you, call the company and ask for clarification. They won't think any less of you - quite the opposite, in fact. They are more likely to be delighted that you have shown your initiative and are serious about your application.   You can also ask a professional CV and resume writer to complete the form on your behalf. People like me!

Black Urban Patriotism Today: Blindsided on the White Side

400+ years of social & economic disparity, white supremacy has dazed Black folks psych and focus.  Now, ineffective struggles for ‘change’ have transformed Black demands into a monster, with an eye on ‘replacing’ White hegemony (with our own brand of oppression) as a solution to Black disparity.  Power does, indeed, corrupt! Instead of continuing a united fight for control over Black lives as a whole, we struggle for equality, equal opportunity to oppress; alongside White folks.    In Libya, Blacks have reverted back to the slave trade (selling their own people), some Europeans and other countries are buying them.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            “Oh, but they are animals.  That could never happen in America, not again.”  It’s what White folks say too!  Really?   Education Secretary, Betsy Devos, policies furthering aspects of the ‘hidden curriculum’ in schools is already preparing Black children towards a (forced) labor market permanent policy.  Many Black parents, Black education leaders support these efforts (they’ve been duped into believing is good) will benefit the Black community at large.   And that’s just one of the many first hints,  a revelation of the larger and more complex struggles to come!

Hope Drunk (a poem)

It’s harder, than ever, these days to see the bright side of life, what with reality the way it is. Suffering imminent, never ending pain, reminiscent, expand a good plan some evil is collected. All is well in love and war, child victims, seniors - sore no more, snuggled in bunks, hope drunks. It used to be, expression is free, disappointment, now the price to throw the dice, and nothing left but breathe, from God, hope drunk. For the best candidate a bullet bump, in secret, hope drunk. Benefits, saved for a few, who knew, insistent, demanding positive thinking order of the day and those in a slump, hope drunk. A golden watch, a fish dinner, a thank you for support, and with nothing more, shown the door. A life insurance policy, satisfied, died in a dump, hope drunk. In reality the same way, celebrate defeat on the seat of dismay. The problem before was not the score, a punk, hope drunk

Duped Again: Wealth, the only Compensation for not Being White?

Black the beautiful, naturally kinky hair, natural walk, and talk, values traded for the almighty dollar.  African American is led down many roads to envy, feelings of discontent and a resentful itch caused by the possessions, qualities, and dumb luck of white America.  The problems we face lay just behind the facade of the greatest lie ever told; that enslave, imprison, kill, and steal distinction of Black folk.  We’re given a title that separates us, African American; and left confused about who we are or want to be.  And don’t even realize it!   And we agonize over debasement of our Black children, worry for their safety and wonder how matters got so far out-of-hand in-spite of our (so-called) successful accomplishments.  We dismiss the straight hair conversion, bleaching cream discoloration, and our fortunes over the unfortunate as part of the problem.  We are content, over happiness with what we’ve become.   Village elders molest the children, instead of help rearing them, while the children compete, one with the other, in fatal games designed in the name of freedom.     As the band plays on, joints and needles are distributed to soothe and to celebrate our individuality.   African American is led down many roads to envy, satisfied or dismissed by material possessions.  The band plays on to satisfy our perverted needs; we're almost like White and White folks.

Poetry or More...

I successfully published a poetry book, i entitled, Poetry or More. Now, the original plan I used is to place three year in one book, text side audio. Unfortunately, a 100MB or 100,000KB limit exist on ebooks that can be loaded <that is fair cause that equate to a huge amount from raw text>. Thus, I made four version, one is only text that include all the years. The other three are partials: 2015-2016, 2017 January to June, or 2017 July to December. 
The text only includes all the poem stories, poem of the months or seasons. I placed the links to each Poetry or More variant below, and if you want an excerpt I kept the December solstice 2017/December 2017/December Poem Story 2017/July Aphelion 2017 poem blog entries.

Mama Earth in less than a moment tilt her axis farthest from parallel to the Sun, more than any other time save one between the Perihelions. May those in the northern hemisphere, have a collective , communal warmth, may those in the southern hemisphere, have a energetic smooth cool.    A once virgin prince, now white hair king
Ponder to her tomb, the Last Rose, from Hadinchi
On his regal seat, in a cold empty hall
He remember, the fairies dance, on all the jewel pall's
No longer their sprinkle's, in this long fall
He leave his seat, stride slow on broke floor
He see her portrait, made when good time's were more
A goblin weave'd her skin, from hairs on the amber boar
No longer it make step, in this long fall
Open the hall door, and on to the mausoleum
The path shimmer or shine, throughway, to where his woe's sum
From glass depicting her life, molded from dragon fire's, or jitu hum's
No longer they breath or song, in this long fall
Finally, to her body rest, in grandeur timeless
A statue made, from the king mind or hand, to her likeness
Eight ninth from centuries, on the craft, and still a jumble mess
No longer can he remake, in this long fall
And fall... the white hair king, crying My Love! my love...
Time smooth over, and none recall, or only hear whisper, in winter
To the once virgin prince or Tamawari, his lover
...But, the rarest whisper, say a black dove cry in a spring, will end their leter   Audio link( https://www.spreaker.com/user/6716082/december-solstice-2017-poem ) Check out my ebooks- the free one is noted, please read/enjoy/give me your response: LINK Short Story Collections  LINK JIHI series

In a temporal expanse 
Tween cluster's from star's or nebula's  
On a planet from like set 
Aside a beach, part to an isle in the caribbean, is waterfall's 
Where she sit 
I don't know her name 
Have not ask'd about 
Been here a few day, and still not approach 
I have no game, or malice play 
A simple joy, watching the sun, shadow, wind, or mist mix, about her, or her dress 
But... time is near done 
The time this somewhere 
Me no romeo, her no juliet 
Nor us two ship, to make a living idol or gret or regret 
Only a woman enjoying the sun, shadow, wind, or mist, mix about her, or her dress 
Or a man enjoying where she sit, honorable distance, no persistence 
Two pleasant, quiet, honest...    model: amber rayne  photographer: Travis Houze  https://www.flickr.com/photos/37051354@N04/27333584943/   Check out my ebooks-  please read/enjoy/give me your response: LINK Short Story Collections  LINK JIHI series
