Anonymous: Once you got this, you have to say five users you like and why (publicly) then send this to 10 of your favorite followers.

five users i like this time?  why not five things i like about myself? I was just getting comfortable with that question.

Alright, well in no order and there’s a lot of other users who I mess with so here goes nothing

  1.  hiba hiba hiba hiba because why not? She;s very nice, rich, and Sudanese, more than enough reasons as to why she is likeable
  2. At number 2, she likes pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. lol but she is really nice, and gives great compliments youfallforme
  3. From Libya to Cali, raised in the Valley. Her url is dead serious munawantstostabyou
  4. You can learn a lot from this man. Very real blog, heart felt personal posts. Feel like I’m reading a book of poetry when I visit his blog.  africanamerican-muslim
  5. Last but not least, theinashow , show him some love and visit his blog and look at his drawings. He’s Palestinian, i think that’s more than enough of a reason to know why he’s OG.

Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria, Chad, Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Djibouti. Those are the countries. It will be drought-resistant species, mostly acacias. And this is a fucking brilliant idea you have no idea oh my Christ

This will create so many jobs and regenerate so many communities and aaaaaahhhhhhh

more info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Green_Wall

it’s already happening, and already having positive effects. this is wonderful, why have i not heard of this before? i’m so happy!

Oh yes, acacia trees.

They fix nitrogen and improve soil quality.

And, to make things fun, the species they’re using practices “reverse leaf phenology.” The trees go dormant in the rainy season and then grow their leaves again in the dry season. This means you can plant crops under the trees, in that nitrogen-rich soil, and the trees don’t compete for light because they don’t have any leaves on.

And then in the dry season, you harvest the leaves and feed them to your cows.

Crops grown under acacia trees have better yield than those grown without them. Considerably better.

So, this isn’t just about stopping the advancement of the Sahara - it’s also about improving food security for the entire sub-Saharan belt and possibly reclaiming some of the desert as productive land.

Of course, before the “green revolution,” the farmers knew to plant acacia trees - it’s a traditional practice that they were convinced to abandon in favor of “more reliable” artificial fertilizers (that caused soil degradation, soil erosion, etc).

This is why you listen to the people who, you know, have lived with and on land for centuries.

Fantastic.

The Great Green Wall, to resist the encroachment of the Sahara. Fascinating.

"And since we all came from a woman

Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman

I wonder why we take from our women

Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?

I think it’s time to kill for our women

Time to heal our women, be real to our women

And if we don’t we’ll have a race of babies

That will hate the ladies, that make the babies

And since a man can’t make one

He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one

So will the real men get up

I know you’re fed up ladies, but keep your head up”

(via Which everyday English words came from Arabic? | OxfordWords blog)

Arabic also has a big influence on Spanish. According to my history professor, 1/4 of Spanish words have Arabic roots. Examples. Oil, in Spanish= aciete , in Arabic = az-zait. Sugar, in Spanish= Azúcar, in Arabic= Sukkar.

I think that it may be even more than 1/4 because of the presence of the Moors in Spain for about 700 years, I believe it was, before Isabella and Ferdinand tried to change that, so there is a lot of Arabic influence in words and phrases, especially in Spain.

aliii786: AsalaamuAlaikum brother. How do i post something on someones wall? Im knew to this

Wa alaykum as-salam brother, ah lol first, it’s not like Facebook where you can post on someones wall. If you want to put like a picture on someone’s page you can “submit” it to them and they might use it. If you want to chat with them you can “send fanmail” or just ask a question. Or just use the @ when you write a post to tag them.
