POLITICIANS..... A DAMNED LOT

A busload of politicians were driving down a country road, when suddenly the bus ran off the road and crashed into an old farmer’s barn.

The old farmer got off his tractor and went to investigate. Soon he dug a hole and buried the politicians. A few days later, the local sheriff came out, saw the crashed bus and asked the old farmer where all the politicians had gone.

The old farmer told him he had buried them.

The sheriff asked the old farmer, "Lordy, were they ALL dead?"

The old farmer said, "Well, some of them said they weren’t, but you know how them crooked politicians lie."

BLAME YOUR EMPTY WALLET.....FOR YOUR LOW IQ

Whenever Kenya Certificate of National Examinations ( KCSE) results are announced, schools like Sunshine Academy, Alliance High School and Mang’u High School never miss the top list.

Easily noticeable is the fact that most – if not all – students who attend these schools, and who go ahead to lead everybody else, come from either middle class or out rightly rich families.

Ever wondered the connection?

In a study published in the journal Science, a team of researchers from British universities and US selected 400 people at random and divided them into ‘poor’ or ‘rich’ group based on their income and afterwards performed intelligence testing on them.

To their amazement – and mine too – they found that being poor reduces a person’s IQ by up to 13 per cent: participants in the poor category performed much worse in the IQ test if they first considered their economic circumstances, but those in the ‘rich’ group remained unaffected.

“The gap between the rich and the poor goes up, in both IQ and impulse control,” pointed out Harvard economist Sendhil Mullainathan, as reported by international media. “Our results suggest that when you’re poor, money is not the only thing in short supply: cognitive capacity is also stretched thin”

To prove the results of the study, the researchers also visited a village in rural India, where sugarcane farmers are paid the majority of their income once a year. The farmers performed significantly better at intelligence tests in the month after being paid than before – when their savings were no more.

As it turns out, the amount of money you have does not only makes you capable of affording expensive things; it also influences your intelligence. If you have limited financial abilities you are more likely to make bad decisions.

Mullainathan thinks that the possible explanation to these findings would be that a person experiencing poverty suffers a cognitive deficit because his mind is dealing with many issues at different levels of life. As a result, they “have ‘less’ mind to dedicate to everything else,” including thought process.

Do you feel thick inside your cranium? Blame your empty pockets.

Are you a person of faith? Here is great inspiration for you!

“So Jesus said to them, “It is because of your unbelief;
for assuredly I say to you, if you have FAITH as a mustard seed,
you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,'
and it will move; and NOTHING WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE for you."

- Gospel of Matthew, 17:20 (NKJV)

PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS ABLE TO HEAR WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO THEM
(By anonymous author)

A Native American (“Red Indian”) and his friend were in downtown New York City, walking near Times Square in Manhattan. It was during the noon lunch hour and the streets were filled with people. Cars were honking their horns, taxicabs were squealing around corners, sirens were wailing, and the sounds of the city were almost deafening. Suddenly, the Native American said, "I hear a cricket."

His friend said, "What? You must be crazy. You couldn't possibly hear a cricket in all of this noise!"

"No, I'm sure of it," the Native American said, "I heard a cricket."

"That's crazy," said the friend.

The Native American listened carefully for a moment, and then walked across the street to a big cement planter where some shrubs were growing. He looked into the bushes, beneath the branches, and sure enough, he located a small cricket. His friend was utterly amazed.

"That's incredible," said his friend. "You must have superhuman ears!"

"No," said the Native American. "My ears are no different from yours. It all depends on what you're listening for."

"But that can't be!" said the friend. "I could never hear a cricket in this noise."

"Yes, it's true," came the reply. "It depends on what is really important to you. Here, let me show you." He reached into his pocket, pulled out a few coins, and discreetly dropped them on the sidewalk. And then, with the noise of the crowded street still blaring in their ears, they noticed every head within twenty feet turn and look to see if the money that tinkled on the pavement was theirs. "See what I mean?" asked the Native American. "It all depends on what's important to you."
