                                            Rudolph Augustus Piggott
   Rudolph Augustus Piggott, Philosopher, Historian and Historiographer, direct descendant of Pharaoh's line,
   disciple of the Egyptian Sun God,Ra, and the most powerful God in the Universe, Amon Ra, fictionalized
   by Ayn Rand as Howard Roark in  The Fountainhead,

                                      Spiritual Advisor
to George Bailey, Harold Saldenah, Irving Mc Williams, Stephen Derek and the Eustace  Clan,
mas man extraordinaire whose stellar production of Pax Romana, with Jean George as Queen of the Band, portraying Empress Josephine, and Invaders providing the music on the road,

Father of the Mega fete (6 bands in PSA Grounds), long before Poison and Tribe, has departed this Plane to join Eric Eustace Williams and Walter Rodney in order to complete the Triumvirate of The Pantheon.

He was the first to publicly question why George Headley was being hailed as the "Black Bradman" when, in fact, Donald Bradman deserved to carry the moniker of " The White Headley".

His contribution to Education will receive mixed reviews principally because his mission was to force his students to think for themselves. Nevertheless, we remain steadfast in the knowledge that Rudy can only die when we die.

 He Lives!

Best one so far for 2018

I went to Massy on Tuesday afternoon on my bicycle, bought a bottle of 'Old Oak Rum',
and put it in the bicycle basket.

As I was about to leave, I thought to myself that if I fell off
the bicycle, the bottle would break. So I drank all the 'Old Oak Rum'
before I cycled home.

It turned out to be a very good decision because I fell off my bicycle
seven times on the way home.

Leiba Ranked Among Top Women's Soccer Coaches In The Nation

WASHINGTON, D.C. – With the 2017 women's soccer campaign on the horizon, head coach Brent Leiba was featured in the NCAA – CoachRank poll by on Tuesday.

"I am honored to have been recognized as one of the top coaches in the nation," said Leiba. "This recognition is shared with our student-athletes, coaching staff and administration. As a program, we are very excited about what we have built and accomplished! The bar continues to be raised as we look forward to another exciting year!"

Leiba, who led the Bison to their first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance in 2015, ranked 24th among NCAA Division I head women's soccer coaches. It is the highest standing for Leiba as he moved up nine spots since last year's poll.

"We want to congratulate Brent on being recognized as one of the premier soccer coaches in the country," stated athletics director Kery Davis. "He represents the true spirit of our mission for Howard athletics, which is to create champions in the classroom, on the field and in life."

In the third year as a member of the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC), Leiba led Howard to an undefeated 9-0-1 league mark in 2016. The victories included five shutouts while three games were decided by one point.

Another one for the books .........

While stitching a cut on the hand of a 75-year-old farmer, the doctor struck up a conversation with the elderly man. Eventually the topic got around to Donald Trump and his role as President elect of the United States

The old farmer said, " Well, as I see it, Donald Trump is like a 'Post Tortoise'

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'Post Tortoise' was.

The old farmer said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a tortoise balanced on top, that's a Post Tortoise."

The old farmer saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain.

"You know he didn't get up there by himself, he doesn't belong up there, he doesn't know what to do while he's up there, he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb asses put him up there to begin with."

        It was getting a little crowded in Heaven, so God decided to change
        the admittance policy. The new law was that in order to get into
        Heaven, you had to have a really bad day on the day that you died. The policy
        would go into effect at noon the next day.
        So, the next day at 12:01 the first person came to the gates of
        Heaven. The Angel at the gate, remembering the new policy, promptly
        asked the man, "Before I let you in, I need you to tell me how your day was
        going when you died."
        "No problem," the man said. "I came home to my 25th-floor apartment on
        my lunch hour and caught my wife having an affair. But her lover
        was nowhere in sight. I immediately began searching for him. My wife
        was half naked and yelling at me as I searched the entire apartment.
        Just as I was about to give up, I happened to glance out onto the
        balcony and noticed that there was a man hanging off the edge by his
        The nerve of that guy! Well, I ran out onto the balcony and stomped on
        his fingers until he fell to the ground. But wouldn't you know it, he
        landed in some trees and bushes that broke his fall and he didn't die.
        This ticked me off even more. In a rage, I went back inside to get the
        first heavy thing I could get my hands on to throw at him. Oddly
        enough, the first thing I thought of was the refrigerator.
        I unplugged it, pushed it out onto the balcony, and tipped it over the
        side. It plummeted 25 stories and crushed him! The excitement of the
        moment was so great that I had a heart attack and died almost
        The Angel sat back and thought a moment. Technically, the guy did have
        a bad day. It was a crime of passion. So, the Angel announced, "OK,
        sir.. Welcome to the Kingdom of Heaven," and let him in.
        A few seconds later the next guy came up. To the Angel's surprise, it
        was Donald Trump. "Mr. Trump, before I can let you in, I need to hear
        about what your day was like when you died."
        Trump said, "No problem. But you're not going to believe this. I was
        on the balcony of my 26th floor apartment doing my daily exercises. I
        had been under a lot of pressure so I was really pushing hard to
        relieve my stress. I guess I got a little carried away, slipped, and
        accidentally fell over the side! Luckily, I was able to catch myself by the fingertips
        on the balcony below mine. But all of a sudden this crazy man comes
        running out of his apartment, starts cussing, and stomps on my
        fingers. Well, of course I fell. I hit some trees and bushes at the
        bottom, which broke my fall, so I didn't die right away. As I'm laying there face up on
        the ground, unable to move and in excruciating pain,
        I see this guy push his refrigerator of all things off the balcony. It
        falls the 25 floors and lands on top of me, killing me.

        The Angel is quietly laughing to himself as Trump finishes his story.
        "I could get used to this new policy," he thinks to himself. "Very
        well," the Angel announces. "Welcome to the Kingdom of Heaven," and he
        lets Trump enter.
        A few seconds later, Bill Clinton comes up to the gate. The Angel is
        almost too shocked to speak. Thoughts of assassination and war pour
        through the Angel's head. Finally he says, "Mr. President, please tell
        me what it was like the day you died."
        Clinton says, "OK, picture this.  I'm naked, inside a refrigerator......"

Sports Summit Opens in Nairobi

The inaugural edition of African Sports Business Association summit opened in Nairobi on Wednesday, with veteran Trinidadian coach Lincoln Phillips giving a tear-jerking account of how black athletes struggled through the race barrier in USA four decades ago.

Phillips, now an international sports entrepreneur, led the famous Howard University to the national collegiate football championships title in 1971, becoming the first black football coach to reach the national finals.

However, the all-black Howard University team was stripped of the title for allegedly fielding ineligible players, in a move seen to be discriminating against blacks in USA.

The forum is organised by US-based Mombi Thairu. Among the speakers at the two-day conference are Trinidadian Sheldon Phillips, Kenyan marketers Peter Gacheru and Paul Oyier along with veteran Nation Media Group journalist Waigwa Kiboi.

Lincoln Phillips represented Trinidad and Tobago in the 1976 Pan American Games’ football tournament with his nation winning a bronze medal.

He was then selected as one of the players to play professional football in Baltimore just as the USA launched its pro football league.

“It’s not how good you are but how hard you work,” Phillips told the audience on Thursday in his keynote address.

“We didn’t look at the white people badly at the time, but instead we sympathised with them because we knew they had a problem. That was the height of the civil rights movement.”

He also noted the importance of sport in personal development, saying although he was not quite university material, sport made him grow.

“I wanted to stay in the army and simply coach, but at the Pan-Am Games, I got exposed at many ways of getting an education and realised that you can use sport to get to where you want, and that’s when I added university education to my pro football contract.”
