Just A Little Cuban Independence

Assalaamualikum Wa Rahmtullahi Wa Barakatuh,

So I've been researching US foreign policy and I came across the struggle for Cuban independence. Cuba was originally under Spain's control but Cuba wanted independence and with American assistance they won against Spain in 1898.However Americas kindness and altruistic nature really only comes to surface when they ban the Cuba government from signing treaties with other countries as well as making Cuba their personal little coal and naval station, really America you are too much! 

There was debate among the people despite there being imperialists there was also anti imperialists like Tillman who really did not want to interfere in the Cuban peoples right to govern ( the Teller Amendment) however the one who actually had a bigger say unfortunately felt they weren't capable of self government, I would say I'm surprised at McKinley but then again I'm not even though he, originally did not even want to go to war with Spain, because of his God-fearing, is-this-the-right-thing-to-do mentality undoubtedly became corrupted by his chums. And if that's not worse McKinley also decides America should also govern Philippines. 

What I don't get is, how America actually justifies their imposing actions, like honestly put it under the pretence of "helping" but who are you actually helping when all you do is greedily use the land for yourself? 

This is why it's essential our goals and reasons in life always have a fear of God, because look at McKinley he obviously fell short somewhere if he thinks God would be happy about him trying to take land unjustly. (this being said he may have repented or realised his mistakes, let's hope)

Aswell as that it just makes you think you know, how power can get to your head if we don't think about God, without Taqwa we become selfish and conceited and forget our purpose!

Well that's all I have to say for now, I'll be back soon, oh yeah I've been thinking about doing more posts like articles, I'm not sure if you know but I've always been interested in Journalism so I may start doing my own amateur article stories maybe local stories I don't know, I'll have to see!

Run like Mad

I've been running for about two months now and I've picked up a few things that may or may not be of interest to you in any case read on if you'd like to know.
1)Firstly, setting up a running routine is good because you know exactly when you want to run and you can fit in your other life around it, this includes the time of day you want to run and where, as well as for how long. I run in my local park which is about a 10minute walk from my house, however some people don't have park that's close in that case you could run in the local area. I also run for 30-40mins on Wednesday and Friday this equals to about 3laps around my park, the reason why it's good to round it to laps is so you don't have to check the time. I usually do a long run on Sunday for about an hour. I usually run after breakfast but as I tend to write in the mornings if I wake up late it can be early afternoon too. 2)Next, at the beginning you might not experience running injuries but after…

Running to the Docks

So last week I went to the royal docks- well that's pretty ordinary, no idea why you decided to mention it as a post
Well guys, I ran there.
I knew the course roughly via barking road until you need to turn towards Newham University Hospital, from there its straight until you get to Prince Regent DLR and then a right and about 10minutes will you get you to Royal Victoria DLR. It's a simple route, but I did get lost at the T-junction towards Custom House or Eastham, luckily I had my phone on hand to guide me. 
The route was easy enough, I have ran to Plaistow a couple of times, so that was familiar, from then, it was touch and go. However with such a long route you do need pitstops. My pitstop was Newham University Hospital, they have a toilet and a prayer room, what more could you ask for? Plus it was Sunday, so it was practically empty!But other pitstops could be Westfield, from Plaistow you just follow it round, but that would be a detour from the route so I found the Hospit…

Barefoot basics

Today I tried out barefoot running it was definitely an experience! I could really feel my feet doing the work and I quite liked feeling my feet hit the ground. I didn't have any injuries or much pain than usual. My muscles were a bit sore like normal.




You can buy a similar pair from sports direct any sort of aqua shoes should be enough protection for your feet.
These are the hot tuna pair I think my sister bought them for a few pounds I don't remember.

Pros:
-you can feel your feet hitting the ground which feels kinda nice
-you can get used to it quite easily
-very lightweight on your feet

Cons:
-you have to work a bit harder because your feet are doing alot of work your feet get tired more easily
-you can feel the ground when you're walking when you're running it doesn't really matter

I borrowed my sisters hot tuna aqua shoes. Hot tuna usually do sports gear for water sports. The ones I wore are a cheaper alternative to Vibrams. Vibrams are a bit more on the expe…
