An Amazing decision by a father
Earlier this summer, Matt Lauer asked Mary Barra, the CEO of GM, whether she could balance the demands of being a mom and being a CEO. The Atlantic asked similar questions of PepsiCo’s female CEO Indra Nooyi. As a male CEO, I have been asked what kind of car I drive and what type of music I like, but never how I balance the demands of being both a dad and a CEO.
While the press haven’t asked me, it is a question that I often ask myself. Here is my situation:
* I have 3 wonderful kids at home, aged 14, 12 and 9, and I love spending time with them: skiing, cooking, playing backgammon, swimming, watching movies or Warriors or Giants games, talking, whatever.
* I am on pace to fly 300,000 miles this year, all the normal CEO travel plus commuting between Palo Alto and New York…

We must not be Silent
The new constitution was meant to cure the exclusion of citizens from participating in the governance of this country; it was also meant to address marginalization of regions from economic prosperity through unequal development. The core solution to that was devolution, found in chapter 11 of the constitution but also transcends the entire constitution.

Clearly I am losing my metal; see unlike patriotic Kenyans who adorned white shirts, convened at Uhuru for the #OccupyParliament match, I watched it from the comfort of my workplace.I was comfortably tweeting from my desk as Kenyans were mercilessly drenched by the mean ‘Black Marias’, saturated in tear gas, clobbered and arrested. For this, I salute the brave men and women who stand up for the nation’s honor.
I just have a little tiny big issue with what went down today;the pigs. I am a pig farmer and today, the key goal of the match was nearly lost on me at the sight of those pigs. For starters, that was Kes 100,000 worth of stock but that is beside the point. The distress that caused on the animals is what brought me to near tears as I took distressing calls from my own mother and sister(we grew up in a farm). The display of a severed pig head, suckling piglets and a nursing sow that was continuously fed on molasses and what the protestors called ‘mock blood’ rubbed me the wrong way.
See I was educated on pig proceeds; which come about when a pig has been killed and EVERY part including its bristles are put to commercial use. my point, A PIG GIVES LIFE, MEAT, SKIN, BRISTLES AND ALL so you can walk to the delicatessen to get your kick of pork products. Pigs are clean, economical animals that exhibit much intelligence and they are willing to give their lives so we can have the delicious products it yields. That sacrifice gave me and my siblings an education.
I have a problem with that visual; It is not at all representative of our members of parliament none at all;. In fact it is the very opposite of what these legislators stand for, they are not MPIGS that is too good a title for them.
A pig is not inconvenienced; it sacrifices its very life for the comfort of pork
A beautiful way to start 2013
If you knew you would NOT fail this year, what is the one thing you would do differently? What’s the one thing you’d do if you knew you were guaranteed to succeed? Invest everything? Go back to school? Start that dream business? Stop paying rent? Propose to the girl of your dreams?
2013 is a new year, and a new beginning, a time to leave the past behind and press on to what’s ahead. In the bible, every 50th year was the Jubilee and during that year, all that had been lost or taken away was restored. (Lev.25:10) As we listen to and apply God’s word, 2013 – our 50th year as a nation – will be a Jubilee year for the people of Mavuno Church.
It will be a year of freedom and celebration, a year of debt cancellation and release from bondage in…
