Imagine yourself out on a very hot and sunny day. You are exhausted, thirsty and sweating. You decide you need to drink cold water, need air conditioner, need to pee and even sit for a while to relax while using a WiFi to surf the internet. But you are out of cash.

There is a bank close to you. What do you do? I bet some banks might start watching out customers who are inside the banking hall not for any real transactions, but to use free facilities.

Jimmy Arni's did a very good job at the way he narrated this story, from a first person's POV. Emotions, thoughts, heart beats, and every painstaking detail about the narrator are all detailed. This could pass for a movie. At the point where Chief was about to be murderd, I could feel my heart beating because I thought he almost failed and that would have been disastrous, knowing what a villain chief was.

The officer who opened the door in the end is just a great way to leave us wondering a million things that could have just happened. Let's wait for a follow up if any is in progress. Great story.

I wouldn't recommended this book to anyone below the age of 18 because of the rate of f-word usage... In the past, we read stories and could use a little help from a dictionary to digest new words. For this book, you need internet connection and need to have watched a lot of contemporary movies to understand some comparisons.

I found this art on a WhatsApp status and thought I should share it. If you know the artist, we can give credit.

Art, Science and Technology are as important as air on earth.  I remember when we were in secondary school and we all thought only the smart ones deserve to study science courses.


Alas, we were wrong. Good music has been able to cure several mental illnesses just like medicine. Technology has reached great heights, but what's the use of a great flat screen TV without a good movie to watch alongside.


Appreciate arts, appreciate science, appreciate technology, for they all require creativity and hardwork, and our lives depend on them all. The people good at art are smart too. Not just the science and tech guys.

There are several motivators  for engaging in different bodybuilding exercises. The sport of bodybuilding is one that has inspired  a lot of people. Many will hit the gym to achieve the desirable type of body for competitions like the famous Mr. Olympia. There are so many bodybuilders and actors out there who have inspired people all around the world  to visit the gym and engage in various workouts.

Getting that type of body is not that easy because you have to put in a lot of  work. Apart from exercising, you can also use of supplements that will speed up the  process of acquiring the desired body mass. You can check them out online, for example, Samento, which is cheap and readily available.

One type of exercise common among many bodybuilders is the deadlift. It is a weight training workout which involves lifting a barbell  loaded with extra weights slowly from the ground to your hip level. This is a good exercise because it helps to stimulate both upper and lower parts of your body. There are times when you may get injured or need a change from deadlifting , so here are some of the best alternatives:

Block Pull

This  is one of the best alternatives to deadlifting that you can try. Commonly referred to as a rack pull, you must first  load their bar with weights. They should be at your knee level. Also, keep the bar at a slight distance from your body. Make sure your back is straight as you lift the bar, assuming a position that will allow you to do so. If you’re interested in taking your training further, you could  find a personal trainer who could help you to train as required and avoid injuries.

One-Leg Deadlift

This  is another ideal alternative to the deadlift. This type of exercise provides your body with the perfect body balance. It is quite similar to the regular deadlift, the only difference being that you have to do it with one of your legs. You can try out both sides to get quality results. Make sure your back is straight throughout the exercise.

Reverse Hyper

A  great exercise, a few sets of these  can help improve your hip movements. The reverse exercise can also help build strength in the upper parts of your body. It can be done on a flat bench. All you need to do is to lay down flat on one side of the bench with your face facing down and your legs on the floor. Raise your legs and hips slowly above the floor, before lowering them back slowly.

One Arm Deadlift

This is another excellent exercise which can be done using a dumbbell. It helps stimulate the upper part of your body. Place a dumbbell on the outside of one of one of your feet. Gently bend, slowly, with your back straight, and lift the dumbbell carefully . You can do this  for both arms and repeat several times if you feel capable.

Writing a book review can be a blessing, and it can be a disaster. You may like a particular book extremely, but still make many mistakes in reviewing it. We, of course, can't oversee all the potential errors a student can make when dealing with this writing assignment, but here will cover ten most common mistakes to avoid.

Taking the Tone of a Professional Critic

You are writing a college or university book review, you are not a professional, highly esteemed Critic, and it is good to humble yourself and remember it. Your professor will be irritated if you don't do it. The fact that this book made it to your program means that it is worth something, so treat it with enough respect. Even if you address a professional writing service with your write my book review for me request, and it will surely be written by an expert, the tone still will be very moderate, calm, not a snob.

Repeating the Same Thoughts Numerous Times

You have some brilliant ideas, we get it. However, it is not good to repeat them again and again during the review. Even if something impressed you beyond belief it is better not to emphasize it more than twice in your text. You have read the whole book at least twice, you should have fresh ideas to put in your writing.

Retelling the Plot

When in high school, you had assignments which implied that you should retell the story the way you understood it. Your ability to remember and later retell what you have remembered in a concise way was checked. Writing a book review is entirely different. You don't have to explain plot lines, give many quotes, or elaborate on each important character before you actually get to the review part.  

Emotionally-Driven Uncalled for Arguments

Good books provoke emotions. It is good if you feel emotional while and after reading a book assigned in class, as it is often that students stay completely cold regarding things they need to read. However, you should be very careful not to make that book review of yours a blog post more suitable for Facebook discussion, not a class. It is accepted to express your sympathy to heroes in a correct manner, but you can't "hate," "love," "detest" heroes. You can, though, use phrases like "I suppose the author used these means to make readers sympathetic to this character."  

Excessive Length

When you just start writing, you feel like you will never be able to write that book review, that the needed number of pages is too much, and there is just nothing to say. However, soon you may notice that you've almost exhausted the allowed number of words and still didn't express yourself enough. Start editing. Don't hope that your professor will be impressed by two extra pages, he or she will just cross them away or won't accept your paper at all.

Too Many Extra References

You like to read, we got it. Still, it is not the best idea to put all the books you've written recently into your paper to boast and show off. Be humble, include only references and allusions which are truly relevant. You are also not supposed to include every book of the same author into comparison, that is too much.

Lack/Excessiveness of Originality

This one is good, and that one is bad, the narration is long, and the ending is sad. This is a short description of most of the reviews written by not enough diligent students. Such analysis is boring and predictable; you should do better than this.

Not Enough Criticism

Even if you like the book entirely, you should find something to criticize in a professional, well-thought-out way. Remember, criticism is not actually about saying mean or even harmful things. It is more about spotting some questionable places and elaborating on them.

Ignoring the Author or Focusing Only on Him/Her

Some students solely focus on the author; some overlook the author and only analyze the Plot. Both strategies will lead you to failure, as the book and its author are genuinely interconnected, but assessing this connection, you should not put the Plot and the artistic means behind.

Broken Logic

This mistake is inherent to texts written either in a hurry, or part by part with long pauses. For example, you received this assignment weeks ago, wrote third, later gave up and finished writing two hours before the submission, not even reading much what you have written before.


Writing a book review, don't neglect following rules for this task stated by your professor and in your handbook for this course. Step-by-step guides are truly useful in such situations.

“The man of knowledge must be able not only to love his enemies but also to hate his friends.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche.

Sounds confusing, but an explanation below:  For me this quote by Nietzsche is addressing true objectivity.


Think of the “man of knowledge” as a referee in a football game. They love one team and hope that team will win.


But they have to be fair.


They can’t let their “hatred” of the one team or their love of the other influence the truth of a call. In this case they must learn to ‘love their enemy” (the other team) and “hate their friends” as a metaphor for the difficulty in staying in “What is true, regardless of your relationship to either side”.
