Dr. Donna Kakonge’s Writing Service (Online Writing Help)

Former Just Answer Homework Expert offering you fast service at better prices.

The way it works is that you pay upfront, however, there are no refunds. If you want good work, then this methodology will work for you.

I handle all of the payments through PayPal. You can trust that I will do good work, plus deliver your work, fresh, originally written and/or edited, on time. If I default on my promise to you in the invoice that I do not deliver the work to you then despite my no refund policy, you can fight the fact that I did not deliver the work to you and you will get your money back (if I do not do the work), through PayPal.

It is essentially a company policy that works because I am honest. Honest for long enough in my life, that I can declare that publicly.

Payments are tax deductible for education expenses. You also receive free .pdf books with purchase that I have written of the same money amount of purchase. Prices subject to negotiation based on difficulty to pay in USD.

FREE Hairnet Café

I was reading a really interesting article on Global News email alerts today about a woman who used a cheap shampoo for 30 years and caused wax build-up in her hair! Well, my hair friend, just creating my dreadlocks the first time back in 1999, I used beeswax, and the buildup in my hair was so thick that it caused me to go to a hair salon called O’mari’s in Montréal when I was living there and the barber cut off my hair to look like one of the singers from Boyz to Men (he really had no choice). Only the hair close to my scalp was not murky:

So, my friend, the 30-year build up from cheap shampoo my friend, I would then use products that would also cause build-up on my hair. Even with the locks that I started in March of 2012 with the help of Mariam Ibrahim who has written a great book that I helped to edit:

Stepping Out by Mariam Ibrahim, Cover Design by Mariam Ibrahim

I would use products on my hair and then have just realised pretty much within the past six months, that my hair, and even afro-textured hair, pretty much wash and go and really does not require a lot of product, nor washing. Some of the people with straight hair, because most people with curly hair or frizzy hair know this, but most people even with straight hair, as I have been told by straight-haired people themselves, probably wash their hair more often than they actually should. Mariam Ibrahim herself, told me after I asked her: “how often should I wash my hair?” Yes, a common question I know, however, Mariam’s answer was not common. She said: “whenever it feels dirty.” Yes, this is true. And even many people know this about the skin on their bodies. Many people will wash their skin too often, then wonder, why they have dry skin? Well, if you wash your skin, face, clean your nails, etc., based on the theory that simply dirt, literal dirt, grime, buildup, etc., needs to be removed, then I would imagine, as I experience myself, that you will not have dry skin.

Why would this be important? Well, many people complain even about things such as wrinkles. As I grow older, I think about this. I am almost 50 years old, and not to brag, but I really don’t have wrinkles. But, it’s not necessarily because I am black, it has more to do with the fact that I use Castille soap which has an alkaline level to egg white, and I also dilute it, I’m not a construction worker, I’m a writer, I’m not exposed to any harsh chemicals as even some hairdressers themselves could be, therefore, I am really not exposing my skin to anything particularly damaging. It’s not that much different, in order to be a little funny, then if you have a piece of favourite clothing. If you barely wear your favourite clothing, it will last longer. If you wear it out, just like shoes as well, a lot, it will start to look raggedy.

All of this is meant to start an online forum that is absolutely free, called the Hairnet Café.

This is a revival of a café similar to the vibrations of the universal voices, not just curly hair talk, but straight hair talk, all different colours, as well as American spellers, and people with absolutely no hair. Let’s talk about hair, skin, nails, etc. If we get some advertisers on here, you may find out about some of the best places all over the world you can go to look the way you want to. If we have some great do-it-yourself types out there, you may receive some wonderful free tips.

This would be an on-going free Hairnet Café that is universal, where actually I began this idea in 1998 in Montréal, Québec inspired by Mariame Kaba who was talking black hair and writing it while I was just thinking about it:

http://bcrw.barnard.edu/fellows/mariame-kaba/

Also, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Chris Rock’s “Good Hair” documentary in 2009:

But this time, the conversation I would like to be universal, not just about black folk! All folk have the same issues. Listen to notable academic Grant McCracken who also wrote another inspiring book I read while doing my original research on black hair politics back in 1998 and here is the book first, then a video from TEDxHarlem:

https://www.amazon.ca/Big-Hair-Grant-Mccracken/dp/B006CDNDEE

Bob Phillips: Canadian

Bob Phillips was the editor of a bilingual newspaper in Aylmer, Quebec. This tells of his story of a sensitive man who tried to bridge the gap between two language communities in the place where he lived:

The Twelve Days of Xmas on the Cheap (Originally Published on The Shoestring.com

Christmas time is near and you have to buy for your true love. Keep these tips in mind for giving during the 12 days of Christmas on the cheap:

On the first day of Christmas, you may give the true love seedlings that you can find for under $5 CDN to grow a pear tree. They may need to buy their own partridge you can note on the card.

On the second day of Christmas, two turtle doves can be costly, but two bars of Dove soap is handy and practical. If you look for them on sale, you will only be out a maximum of under $10 CDN.

On the third day of Christmas, three eggs from a French hen is something you can probably get for free right out of your own fridge. Just caution your loved one to handle with care. If they are a vegetarian, you might want to remind the person to keep stored in a cold place. If for your pet, they make for a good source of protein if your pet likes human food.

On the fourth day of Christmas, calling birds to remind me of calling cards, which always come in handy. Ask around amongst people who use them to find out some of the cheaper places to go to get good ones. I’ve heard that in Toronto places around Spadina and Dundas Streets in Chinatown are great for getting calling cards. This may be one of your more major expenses among the 12 days unless you buy three $5 CDN cards which would give you at least half an hour of chirping, even on the other side of the world.

Okay, the fifth day – five golden rings can be expensive even if you buy them at a pawn shop. See if you can find your true love five plastic rings at The Dollar Store in the children’s department that are the colour of gold. You can suggest they put it on their keychain for decoration.

On the sixth day of Christmas, this is a time where you can use your creativity. Again at The Dollar Store, you can buy art supplies and draw “six geese a-laying.” You can even buy a dollar store frame for it and the whole thing should cost you about $3 CDN for the paper, art tools, and frame.

This is where you can take your true love on a trip to your bathroom. For under $7 CDN, you can buy plastic swans at The Dollar Store or a place like Home Hardware, fill your bathtub with water and let the seven swans a-swim. If you’re concerned about your hydro bill, go back to the sixth day and use the money you have spent on the art supplies and paper – for a dollar more buy another frame – and you’ve started to create quite a gallery for your true love as you draw the “seven swans a-swimming.”

For the eighth day, I will interpret “eight maids a-milking” as meaning barmaids. Take your true love out for a drink (in time for them to get the liquid out of their system) and order eight glasses of milk for them – hopefully one at a time.  Nothing says in the rules that there’s anything wrong with chocolate, strawberry, mocha or other flavours of milk. It could even be goat’s milk if the restaurant serves that. It could also be cheaper to stay at home and buy a jug or carton of your love’s favourite milk, put an apron on and pour the eight glasses – imagining you’re a barmaid for a night. What you do after that is up to you.

On the ninth day of Christmas, rent Moulin Rouge or Chicago, under $5 CDN, for your loved one and play a game where you can see at least nine ladies dancing.

On the tenth day of Christmas – this is a moment where you and your loved one can huddle around your computer. For the low cost of your Internet connection or free connection, you can visit www.lordofthedance.com and enjoy video clips of Michael Flatley’s Celtic dance and “ten lords a-leaping.” You can make a game out of this as well and count them in the video clip. If you want to see the whole performance which has sold out all over the world, check out your local video store.

On the eleventh day, you will need to do some planning. Check out your TV Guide or online one and see what HBO or Bravo in Canada is scheduling for that day that includes an orchestra. You will find at least “11 pipers-piping,” there is entertainment for the low cost of your monthly cable bill. If you’re not home at the time it airs, remember VCRs? You may even be fortunate enough to have a recordable DVD player – I hope you got a deal on it.

Last but not least, the 12th day – where you have “twelve drummers-drumming,” is a wonderful time to introduce some music into this art of seduction. I would suggest anything Aboriginal or African where drums play a key role in a lot of the music. I will leave the selection up to you, but if you buy something you like for your true love at a second-hand CD shop, or download something from the Internet onto your IPod, you’re looking at a price anywhere from $10 CDN to free.

Reading for Less

At the time I was really young, I used to love buying books. I think in some ways I had more money then. I didn’t pay rent and my food was free. Everything is cheaper when you’re a kid, so for those reading, enjoy it while you can.

Open House signs for dream homes and condos are all over the city for most people who can get to them. What about if you cannot get to them? What happens when you are looking for a dream home and your sight, your hearing, your chair, your cane…prevents you from climbing those stairs or even reaching the newly renovated cabinets?

J’ai fait cette histoire au lycée. Je ne l’ai plus, mon ancien professeur d’anglais, M. MacPherson, l’a et je ne sais même pas s’il vit encore ou s’il l’a encore, mais c’est dans ma mémoire.

How to Make Your Mall Experience a Free One

 Being in a shopping mall can be an overwhelming experience – especially when you don’t have the cash to spend. But, there are ways to have a good time without spending a cent.

Before you go shopping, you want to make sure you look good. Visit a makeup counter and get a free makeover and look gorgeous while you walk through the mall. It’s also a great form of exercise.

First and foremost – know about samples. Rather than buying anything you need, you can always ask for samples of things and stock them for supplies. This goes for just about anything. For example, I had heard that there was this great hair product called Phyto and went to the mall to get samples every time I needed some. You can do this for face creams, body lotions, and many other toiletries.

Trying on new clothes for the fun of it could give you some great ideas to find cheaper versions of what you love at discount places or to get hand-me-downs from friends.

Once you’re done with looking your best, catch some entertainment by going into an electronics store and watching some of the stuff they have on their screens. Some really nice stores have chairs set up and might even have a new DVD on. You could always ask them to put on something interesting so you can see the quality of the latest flat screen monitor, without having the money to buy it.

What is this world without music? Even the smallest of malls will have one music store and the bigger ones will have more for you to choose from. The best way to find out what’s hot and what’s not is to look at the racks and see how the different CDs are ranked. You can even mellow out by checking out the listening stations in places like HMV and enjoy the tunes.

Speaking of how things are ranked – check out the bookstores for the bestsellers. Books from Dr. Phil or the upcoming biography on Bob Denver you can read for free at Indigo or Chapters. Take your time; some bookstores have places to sit so you can be there for awhile. Or squat on the floor.

If you have a child, spend that special time in the children’s department of a bookstore reading to your little one. Toy stores are great ways to keep the kids occupied. Perhaps if they can play with that doll or toy truck in the store, they’ll tire of it and won’t hound you to buy it.

Get decorating ideas that you can do on the cheap from places like the Pottery Barn.

After all this excitement, go to the furniture department and take a nap on one of the luxurious couches of any of the big stores like Sears.

Now after you’ve experienced a fulfilling free time, look for loose change in pay phones and on the ground (it can pay to walk with your head down) go to the mall’s bank and make a small donation to Hurricane Katrina relief (every penny counts as you know).

If you do have a little cash to spend – The Dollar Store is always a great place. For example, I bought a pair of sunglasses for a dollar with black frames from there and took them to a one-hour optical place and paid way more for the prescription lenses than the frames. People are telling me all the time they look like $300 glasses – but I didn’t spend anything near to that.

When you get hungry, try checking out places like Baskin Robbins and many others for samples to get a quick fix. If you go to enough fast food joints for samples, you might even end up feeling full.

All this will make your shopping experience pain-free for your wallet and enjoyable. Have a good time and remember to throw a penny in the waterfall if your major mall has one!

Book review of Cane by Jean Toomer

Jean Toomer is the Author of Cane

I came across this book for three dollars at a Lebanese restaurant in the McGill ghetto of Montreal. It was worth every penny, and proves that you can find good books for affordable prices.

Jean Toomer was a genius. Cane is part of the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920’s. This book has influenced such writers as Langston Hughes, Countee Cullen, Eric Walrond, Zora Neale Hurston, Wallace Thurman, Rudolph Fisher and his other contemporaries of the 20s. When reading the book, there is no wonder that it had a tremendous impact, and should be revisted for some reasons I will point out now. Read More

Trecia Harley Does an Online Magazine - Photo Courtesy of Trecia Harley

Rachel Muenz - Writers - September 18, 2009

Writing and the written word have been a major part of Trecia Harley’s life ever since she could remember. As a child she loved to read and be transported to another world.
 
The magic of words was her main pastime growing up in Parry Sound, Ontario. Thus, writing became her favourite form of expression.
 
Trecia attended the University of Toronto where she studied English Literature, History and Celtic Studies. She also completed a publishing certificate course at Ryerson Polytechnic University.
 
“Throughout my entire education, I loved reading books, reading about the making of books, discussing the power of literature, and debating the need for it in daily life,” says Trecia. “To me, writing was, and will always be, THE ultimate form of connecting the minds of men.”
 
This lead Trecia to becoming involved with The Breath, an online magazine. The Breath was the brain-child of two men from Toronto: Shane Belcourt (Anthony) and Jordan O'Connor. Shane and Jordan are musicians and artists in their own right in Ottawa. Shane and Jordan saw the early possibilities of the Internet and were excited by the idea of forming an arts collective site which would house an e-zine and independent Canadian record label. 
 
Shane and Jordan asked Trecia and her husband Craig to help out - and they were immediately hooked.
