American Hip Hop Artist
better known by his stage name Nas, formerly Nasty Nas, is an American rapper. Son of jazz musician Olu Dara, Nas is well known for his 1994 debut album Illmatic. This album established Nas as one of hip-hop's most profound lyricists, introducing his signature poetic style. Raised in the notorious Queensbridge housing projects in New York City, he represents a continuation of a hip-hop tradition in Queensbridge that has spanned through early hip-hop, including the Juice Crew, Mobb Deep, and MC Shan.
I first heard of Nas in the 90's when the Fugees was still a hip hop artist, Tupac was still alive and P diddy was still Puff daddy.
I like Nas cause his radical and subversive but politically correct at all times.
I like his name, it sounds like Nos as in Nitrous Oxide a chemical compound
is sometimes injected into the intake manifold of a car to increase speed.

A Humanitarian force that can be in force if the government will do its part to help the masses. This act can be permitted in Burma to help the hundreds of thousands of victims of a horrendous cyclone that made Myanmar a grave.
The whole world wanted to help but the Junta of course dictates.
An epidemic might scatter not only from the neighboring countries of Burma but to the entire world.
The Filipino people demonstrated People Power to the world and this can be used in those countries.
But who are the leaders of those countries to lead them into a peaceful victory?

The August 2007 demonstrations were led by well-known dissidents, such as Min Ko Naing (with the nom de guerre Conqueror of Kings), Su Su Nway (now in hiding) and others.
Reports have surfaced of at least one death, of activist Win Shwe, under interrogation.
On 19 September 2007, several hundred (possibly 2000 or more) monks staged a protest march in the city of Sittwe.Larger protests in Rangoon and elsewhere ensued over the following days. Security became increasingly heavy handed, resulting in a number of deaths and injuries.
Sources in Burm said on 6 October that the internet seems to be working from 22:00 to 05:00 local time.
October 13, 2007, the military junta of Burma made people march in a government rally, reportedly paying some participants 1000 kyat (approximately $0.80) each.
Junta officials also approached local factories and demanded they provide 50 workers each; if they didn't, they were to be fined.
7 February 2008, SPDC announced that there will be referendum for the Constitution in May 2008, and Election by 2010.
Various global corporations have been criticized for profiting from the dictatorship by financing Burma's military junta
World governments remain divided on how to deal with the military junta.
Calls for further sanctions byUnited Kingdom, United States, and France are opposed by neighboring countries; in particular, China has stated its belief that "sanctions or pressure will not help to solve the issue".

Some Filipinos who never experience good life in the Philippines treated other Filipinos in America like a trash and a piece of manure.
They never experience good life in the Philippines and act like they own the entire world when they settle down in America with high paying jobs.
I am so disappointed with some Filipinos who laughed, ridiculed,humiliated and embarassed other Filipinos because they make more money than those unfortunate Filipino immigrants.
Remember my fellow Filipinos We came from a third world country.
We never look back where we come from because you are making tons of money but in fact you are still poor in heart and still living in ridicule and a materialistic world.
You forgot where you come from!!!
I wish I was in Cebu where my heart belongs and the dream that became a reality. I always wake up smiling in Cebu where I can smell the ocean breeze during low tide and watched the splashing of the waves on high tide.
I craved to be in Cebu where I grew up and learned to harvest clams and get spooked by a sea snake.
I learned to speak Cebuano and learned to respect the elderly but my experiences was interrupted when my parents decided to move to Pangasinan.
I never wanted to live in America but my Mother warned me of the economic instability of the Philippines and a scar that cannot be remove.
The scar that the Filipino people are still trying to heal from the past.
I fell in love in Cebu like a puppy licking its wound to be healed. I never wanted to live in America because I wanted to live and die in Cebu but now in Boston.
