The imperialism period in Europe

The term “imperialism” refers to a policy of extending a country’s power and influence through colonization or use of military force/other means. 

The period between 1870 and 1914 saw a Europe that was considerably more stable than that of previous decades. To a large extent this was the product of the formation of new states in Germany and Italy, and political reformations in older, established states, such as Britain and Austria. This internal stability, along with the technological advances of the industrial revolution, meant that European states were increasingly able and willing to pursue political power abroad.

However imperialism isn’t the word to describe the title of 19th century as many number of European states, most notably Spain, Portugal and the Netherlands, had carved out large overseas empires in the age of exploration.

Be like NO ONE (deep thoughts)

I might have some unethical style of writing blogs, some misconceptions of grammar and words, swearing and condemning the people and some customs of the society. 

Look at a tree, selfless service provider, standing tall with pride yet so generous as it showers the sweet and juicy fruits upon us. Be like a Tree

Look at Thor, the mythological god of thunder, so Pride, honorable, fearless, a warrior and the defender of Asgard who didn’t accepted the throne because he thought he didn’t deserve it. Be like Thor

Look at Eden Hazard, the Belgian international Soccer star, hardworking, dedicated, one of the best in the world, a great player and a more great human in life. Be like Hazard

Look at your father, fighting hard, motivational, can do anything for your happiness, loves you no matter how good or bad you are. Be like your father

Look at Dwayne Johnson, WWE legend, great actor, sick speaking skills, badass attitude, a brand more than a human, beast gymer yet so generous and kind. Be like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

We should get inspired from them, not try to be a ditto copy of them (if we can’t do it) because we’ll never be like anyone. That’s why I say

“No one” is like you, be like NO ONE 

We create our own demons

“We create our own demons”, this quote is one of the truest ever said or heard on the planet. We start with something pure and exciting. But then our ego and mistakes play their parts. Love and hate. Love becomes hate when it is twisted and filled with obsession, betrayal and redemption. Sometimes, we do things, terrible things, in the name of love, which is only the excuse that we made to justify our behavior. 


We often put our downfall and unsatisfactiom on the shoulders of others (ex. Our parents) but why don’t we take the blame ourselves. Our pointless blamings, hopes and expectations to others are as useless as “ueue” in “queue

It would rather be an inspiration rather than a fiendish. To do good is effortless but doing the opposite requires conscious exertion of pain, of trouble.”

Chelsea agree fee with AS Monaco for Tiemoué Bakayoko

Chelsea have agreed a £39.8m fee with AS Monaco for midfielder  Tiemoué Bakayoko, report the Times.

The 22-year-old midfielder impressed for Monaco last year as the team won Ligue 1 and reached the Champions League semi-finals and Chelsea have been hoping to strike a deal for weeks.

Now the Blues are happy to push ahead with a move despite Bakayoko carrying a niggling knee injury that is likely to rule him out for two months. Chelsea have been assured there should be no long-term issues.

Antonio Conte was frustrated to see Romelu Lukaku move to Manchester United at the beginning of this week but having already signed German defender Antonio Rüdiger from AS Roma, Chelsea are finally making some progress towards building the squad Conte wants for the new season.

Why rejoining under Ancelotti will be James’s Renaissance

When James Rodriguez became the latest Galactico to join the star-studded ranks at Real Madrid in July 2014 it was obvious what part of the puzzle he provided for Carlo Ancelotti.

It says everything about James’ quality that a team that had finally achieved their “La Decima” dream by winning the Champions League saw it necessary to fork out €71million to Monaco for his signature.

You don’t have to ponder for long to realise why Madrid made the decision.

James had just taken the football world by storm at the World Cup, winning the Golden Boot award with six goals including a volley against Uruguay that will forever be among the pantheon of great goals at football’s most prestigious tournament.

He did so after spending a solitary season at Monaco in which he scored nine goals and provided a further 12 assists.

Perhaps just as important for Madrid were the devilish good looks and an award-winning smile. Put simply, James was a marketing dream for one of the world’s most globally lucrative clubs.

And in Ancelotti, James had the perfect coach to utilise his talents. 


The river singing

The river tumbles onwards to the sea, 

And rushes, racing over rocks and stones, 
And boulders, branches, pebbles, sand and scree, 
Singing so many melodies to me, 
In whispering notes and thunderous roaring tones. 

Music that lingers in the ears and mind, 
Soothing confusing thoughts that come my way, 
Easing all stress, so my spirit is resigned, 
To watching its water ripple, swirl, glide and wind, 
And giving a soft contentment to my day. 

Always there, this river, which is never still, 
And every night and day, how strong it flows, 
Into each pool, each inlet and each new rill, 
It does, my thirsty soul, with pleasure fill, 
And sets my thoughts on peace, and my ‘being’ glows
