Congratulations to the Maroon Team, 5-2 winners of the 2014 (5th Annual) UOP Cup and its team captain, Alejandro Cardenas.  This year’s cup was the largest ever, with 46 participating players.  The 2014 “Golden Boot” trophy goes to Kelvin Obareti for his hat trick in the big game.   Attached are photos from the game and team party.  Special thanks to our referees and linesmen (Julian Ballarin) and to Karisma for taking most of the action photos. 

About $400 raised through the cup was donated to Unicef to purchase anti-malarial drugs for children around the world.   Once a child is infected with malaria, they have about 24 hours to reach anti-malarial treatment after which their chance of survival decreases sharply. There are about 1 million people that die each year from malaria and the majority are young African children. One packet of Anti-Malarial Drugs has 30 doses which are sent to malaria-prone communities to guard against infection. With the UOP Soccer Club donations, we were able to purchase 13 packets and save the lives of 390 children!!!

Oscar Pistorius - The Blade Gunner

The circus and media frenzy surrounding the Oscar Pistorius trial is painstakingly unnecessary. 
Since when does a case that factually leans on conviction take this long? 
Oscar is like the star attraction of the show.
He plays all his cards right.
Plays the grieving fiance,
the distraught observer and 
the man with the flow of tears. 

I deeply suspect men that shed a lot of tears because it shows a bit of mental weakness. 
Can Oscar be said to suffer from mental weakness? 
A seasoned sportsman with medals cannot be said to suffer from such a defect because it takes mental toughness and a lot of grit and determination to become a champion. 
Has he applied his attributes of grit and determination in ending the life of Reeva?

Since when does exhaustion lead to postponing a case of this magnitude.
This is not a trial of an 11 year old. 
This is not the youth court. 
This is the trial of a grown man that has to face the consequences of his action.
I don't know the motive for this act, but if he committed the crime, he must surely face the consequences. Celebrity status should not guarantee special treatment. 
The law should be blind to status. 
Lady Justice does not open her eyes but weighs the balance. 
This balance has to be struck as soon as possible so that the deceased party can grieve properly.

Is Life Really About The Survival of The Fittest?

Allow me to interchange between fittest and strongest as this is the easiest way I can explain what I'm about to share with you.

In evolutionary terms, it is a common theory that the fittest survives!
However, if this is true about everything then our world will be empty today simply because:

The strong will wipe out the weak

The stronger will wipe out the strong

The strongest will wipe out the stronger and 

In the strongest league, the cycle will continue till nothing is left.

In the bible, the wisest man that ever lived said 
"I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all" -Eccleiastes 9 V 11-

In my journey through life, I have come to realise that the survival of the fittest does work with other species to an extent but in human case, it is about the ability to adapt to situations spontaneously. In the toughest situation, the fittest won't survive but those that can adapt will.

As humans we have to spend our time wisely and take chances. We must also be open to respond to situations when time and chance happens. If you have anyone you look up to, observe their life closely. You will see that they are not where they are today because no one can do it better but because they took chances and was able to adapt spontaneously.

I hope I have been able to put my point across in a way that's easy to understand. Leave comments and questions below and share :).
