Who Is An Illiterate?

“You are an illiterate!” – This is a very common insult among Ghanaians, especially school children. It is probably the one insult that sums up your whole life and very depressing as such. According to the Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, an illitrate can be any of these definitions, “not knowing how to read or write”, “having or showing a lack of knowledge about a particular subject”, ” not grammatically correct”. I have been struggling with the concept of education since high school and trying to understand why we refer to others who can’t read or write ‘English’ illiterates. This is a very sensitive ...

Random Newbie Photos On A Cheap Camera

I have slowly developed an intense interest in photography for a year and a half now, I guess as a hobby. I love very artistic stuff and photography seems like a great way to express emotions, and a situation without saying a word. It’s crazy how a picture can convey so much meaning. I personally love close up shots, landscapes, human art, and interactions with nature. I am not sure if those are even real terms in the photography world but that’s how I feel about the photos I take. I do not own a very good camera, but I try ...

Without further or do, in no particular order, here is my top 30 favourite ...

My Top 10 Favourite Must Have Linux Apps

I love the Linux operating system. It is the best and I have tried so many distributions and I have finally settled on one I like, Ubuntu 12.04. I was never a huge fan of linux and I disliked the look and feel. I was comfortable with using windows and I wasn’t interested using another OS. However, it sounded cool to be a linux user and so I partitioned my drive and installed linux on it. I never really used it and brought it up during geeky conversations to sound cool :), don’t judge me! I am a huge fan ...
