In the absence of formal courts, the case...

(Overpowering Gratitude Vs Vexing Misgivings — By Ahmed I. Hassan) Somalilanders will, in all likelihood, always be grateful to Ethiopians. This is because once upon a time, Somalilanders, thoroughly attrited, were fleeing in mass on foot for dear life. And Ethiopia happened to be the only country where they found the safe havens which saved them from almost complete genocide. Why did...

A provocative article (targeting ladies) that I just read about on the local newspaper, Metro. Tracy writes: I was, for some reason, born knowing how to get married. Growing up in foster care is a big part of it. The need for security made me look for very specific traits in the men I dated — traits it turns out lead to marriage a surprisingly high percentage of the time. Without really...
