Waste Management: Facts on Cockroaches


Cockroaches

Cockroaches Facts and Fun

Oh my God! there are Cockroaches in my house! Ohhhhhhhh i just switched on the lights and they scampered away. What does it mean when you see Cockroaches in your house? The answer is that you are living with one of the most primitive living insects dating back to the time of dinosaurs!

I remember when i was in lower primary, i went visiting a village friend. Those days we lived in mud walled thatched houses, sure bleeding grounds for Cockroaches. On one of the posts i saw a “beautiful” nest of Cockroaches, they were black and glittering in the dim fire light. I was stupidly impressed.

I decided to carry a few to our hut which was about 2km away. Imagine the shock my mother had when after three months a “beautiful” black glittering nest of Cockroaches was sighted on one of the hut posts! I don’t think she ever forgive me on this one. The Cockroaches are still there to date. My other siblings are still amused by this escapade.

 

There are over 4,500 species of Cockroaches ranging in size from 3cm to 10cm long. Cockroaches are mainly nocturnal and will run away when exposed to light. But when you see them, all have a broad, flattened body and a relatively small head. As they move around, they secrete a chemical trail in their faeces and emit a perfume, which alerts other Cockroaches as to where the party is.

Scientists hypothesize that Cockroaches decide where to go based on just two factors; how dark it is and how many other Cockroaches there are! Unfortunately for us these chemical trails also transmit bacteria, which can mean disease.

Some Female Cockroaches stay fertilized for life:-

Did you know some female species of Cockroaches are known to be parthenogenetic, that is they only mate once and stay pregnant for life! They will reproduce without the need for a male.

Do you try to disguise the fact that you are living with these primitive creatures by buying insect spray, invading the kitchen in the middle of the night then letting loose with the insect spray?

The Electoral System is an anticipated good gift yet a headache


The Electoral System in Kenya has been subjected to the greatest rebuke for more than a decade now. In the recent past it has been seen as the greatest source of impunity. In 2007, Kenya’s elections were marred with the worst violence ever in Kenya’s history, this put the Electoral body on the spot light. The post violence election that caused thousands to be displaced (IDPs) and many to loose their lives and property is now a subject at the International Court of Crime (ICC) in The Hague.

It was joy and jubilation as the curtain fell down for the old constitution as we ushered in a new dawn in a constitution that was highly acknowledged by the majority of Kenyans. However, the Electoral System is causing a headache in the political class and cycles.

The Electoral System leadership is now undergoing a high standard of vetting to identify the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission commissioners. Some members of the political divide are trying to flex their muscles to see to it that their favorite candidates find themselves in the Electoral System and this is raising eyebrows.

What are the general principles for The Electoral System as prescribed by the constitution?

Relationships Counseling – The challenge of Age and Education Difference Factor


Relationships and marriages today are in the verge of crumbling even though nurtured on the face of clear religious values. The question is; does age and education have a bearing on this fall out? Why then do we experience lots of crazy and unexpected break ups?

It’s really extremely astonishing attesting to this fact. While many Relationships disintegrate due to other known factors, why then shouldn’t we consider age and education as a case study?

Relationships in the olden days:-

In the traditional set up, Relationships were a matter of prescribed traditional cultural norms. Challenges were not significantly noted due to the systematic design especially bearing in mind the age group set up, which consequently dictated marriage and subsequently resolution mechanisms were in place.
