This allows smaller, though more technologically-advanced, nations to compete with larger, lesser-developed ones. Modifiers in the form of bonuses and penalties are added to refine the list. Some things to observe in regards to the finalized ranking:
• Ranking does not simply rely on the total number of weapons available to any one country but rather focuses on weapon diversity within the number totals to provide a better balance of firepower available (i.e. fielding 100 minesweepers does not equal the strategic and tactical value of fielding 10 aircraft carriers).
• Nuclear stockpiles are NOT taken into account but recognized / suspected nuclear powers receive a bonus.
• Geographical factors, logistical flexibility, natural resources and local industry influence the final ranking.
• Available manpower is a key consideration; nations with large populations tend to rank higher.
• Land-locked nations are NOT penalized for lack of a navy; naval powers ARE penalized for lack of diversity in available assets.
• NATO allies receive a slight bonus due to the theoretical sharing of resources.
• Current political / military leadership is NOT taken into account.

Your phone overheats. But is it happening all by itself, or do you have apps running in the background that you don’t know about? Perhaps you’re gaming too much, or the environmental conditions are too extreme… the fact is, it’s difficult to pinpoint just why your smartphone is overheating.
Perhaps the device becomes sluggish when hot, or perhaps it shuts down until it has cooled. Either way, it has to stop. So let’s have a look at the various causes and help you to work out just what is going on.
by Admin / 3,007 ViewsThere a lot of things I don’t understand about men. But maybe the thing I don’t understand the most is why they care so much about how big (or small or medium or whatever) their p*nis is. I just don’t get it! The thing is hidden behind pants most hours of the day.And truly, there are so many things that matter more.1. What he smells like.Does he smell like a dog that just ran into a dirty pond, or does he smell like his personal brand of deodorant with a touch of I was just playing outside doing boy things?2. How good he is at maintaining eye contact.Because I’m looking at your eyes, not your crotch-al region, when we’re having intimate conversations.3. How well his pants fit.Not because I’m trying to get a glimpse at the goods, but because I want to know that you can shop for yourself like an adult.4. What sort of music he likes.Seriously crucial if we’re going to get along. Not crucial to how well we get along? The size of your thing.5. His opinions on political issues.Are you #WithHer or do you want to Make America Great Again? P*nises can’t vote (I think).6. How nice he is to my friends.I want to make sure my friends like who I like, or else it’ll never work out. And probably my friends will never see the family jewels, so they don’t have much of a say in the matter.7. How well he listens to me.pen*ses do not have ears. And even if they did, I don’t think they’d be very compassionate (they have a one-track mind).8. What side of the bed he sleeps on.I guess your pen*s will sleep on whatever side of the bed you sleep on, but I’m pretty sure you’re the one calling the shots.9. How good he is at communicating.Want to make sure he texts back regularly and is easy to get in touch with. Can’t text with a pen*s (d*ck pics don’t count).10. How good of a kisser he is.Mouths are just so much more interesting than a pen*s, which really can only do so much anyway.11. His willingness to learn more about feminism and gender equality.The pen*s is welcome to come along for the ride on this one but a #woke pen*s is one that realizes size doesn’t matter. Crucial.12. How good he is at making me orgasm.You’d think this would have a lot to do with pen*s size, but that’s where you’re wrong, buck-o. It really does not. It really does not.

I’m talking gas and charcoal, people. Burgers, dogs, chicken, veggies, the works. Bonus points if you can do that thing where you cook corn, with lime, in tin foil.by kuzak / 5,293 Views
Through Every race and ethnic group and what they like about women but the passion African men have for big but-ts and bre-asts are extremely outrageous.
Taking this as an example to explain the above, if two Ghanaian and 2 Nigerian men are discussing about a serious issue or some important business and if a woman with big but-ts or bre-asts passes, the whole conversation will come to a standstill but this is never the same with slim women. Most men often fight and some can even die because of big but-ts and will do anything to have them. Reading this, many will not believe a man can do anything just to have a lady with big butt’s or breasts but if you want evidence of this, you can go through our article on the list of women with big b00bs and but-ts and go to the comments section, you will see how African men are going crazy over these women. It seems to be a culture in itself.by Admin / 48 Views
In this day and age, we are more apt to strike up a conversation with someone we don’t know personally through social media than we are with the person sitting next to us on the bus or the subway. Australian student Matt Kulesza Wants to rekindle good old fashioned face time with real, live human being. So he is taking the next 3 years to meet and have coffee with each and every one of his 1,000 friends on Facebook.by Admin / 135 Views
In April 2007, the Malawi Broadcasting Station (MBS), a state-owned radio station, had its office furniture and cars impounded by the country’s police following a dispute over unpaid music royalties.
The measures followed a long-running legal wrangle between the station and the Copyright Society of Malawi (COSOMA). A Malawi court ordered MBS to pay USD 250,000 to COSOMA for years of accumulated music royalties. The confiscation was aimed at ensuring MBS pays up the sum.
COSOMA, a consortium of associations in the field of intellectual property, is a statutory body tasked to enforce copyright laws of Malawi. Boasting a history of over two decades, the society is considered a role model for the rest of Africa in the protection of copyright. Here is one of the six African countries where an Ethiopian delegation went last year to draw lessons. The delegation was tasked with the responsibility of proposing an amendment to the Copyrights and Neighboring Rights Protection Proclamation (No. 410/2004) of Ethiopia.
