Five Ways Men Can Escape Poverty

Five Ways MEN Can Escape Poverty.

1. *Leave Naked Women Alone:* Yes, those women who dress like they are in the process of undressing but they have not finished. Leave them alone. Most of them are up to no good and will only cost you a whole fortune in one weekend. Instead, get yourself a real woman: There is strength in a real woman. Get a woman who will not only support your vision but will also push you to achieve more. A woman who will inspire you to work hard and not a woman who just makes you hard. He who finds a real woman finds a good thing and obtains favour and power to create wealth.

2. *Stop Drinking Cheap Beer:* I have no problem with having a drink over the weekend for social interaction and networking. However, when you drink cheap beer, you hang out with cheap people who have cheap ideas and a cheap future. *Big business opportunities are found in places where the drinks are expensive.* In fact, in places where they sell cheap beer, the only people you will find there are people who will be asking you for money. *They even clap when you come knowing 'big buyer' has come.*

3. *Stop being Lazy:* "Man ooh Man, why art thou Lazy?" You are too lazy for your own good. You sleep the whole day and blame the govt for your poverty. *"A Little Sleep, a Little Slumber, poverty shall overtake you like a political cadre in overalls"*. A lot of men are just lazy when it comes to making money. *They have enough energy to give a woman five orgasms, but have no energy to start one organization.* That's why it is so easy for men to manufacture children than it is to make even pegs for putting children's clothes on the line.

4. *Know Productive Things:* You know too much about the, UEFA, EPL and LaLiga than you know about the Stock Exchange and Wall Street. If you keep too much junk in your head, you get a junk life. I know a lot of men who are so sharp when they are talking about girls, about soccer and about street politics, but bring a topic about investment, innovation and business, they start looking at their phone, yawning or saying bye. Useless things, videos and Menes go viral fast than constructive things. A man must know how to do at least one productive thing (i.e have one skill) even without having gone to college.

5. Get *Connected* to Big Men: A lot of men are failing because they are not mentored. They don't have anyone to whom they can sit down and listen, with obedience. In the olden days, old men would sit young men down and show them how to hunt and kill animals. And no man was considered a man enough until he has personally killed an animal. Now these men of nowadays are not mentored and can't even kill a bird. There are men out there who have made it in life, find a way to get mentored by big men who are making waves.

Controversy on cut off ; Professor Oloyede explains the basis for the reduction in cut-off marks for students admission

Controversy on cut off mark: UTME not for admission purpose but for Ranking -- Professor Oloyede (JAMB Registrar

The Interview

The decision to reduce the cut-off mark to 120 for universities and 100 for polytechnics has met with criticism from many quarters. It seems it is not a popular decision.......

You see, the issue is that people who are not familiar with a matter, rather than keeping their peace, will be commenting on things that they know little about. Our examination is not an achievement test. It is not a qualifying examination; rather, it is a ranking examination. Anybody that we want to admit into the university must basically have his five credits. It is not JAMB that qualifies them. But, because we don't have space for all of them, we decide to rank them. What we had been doing was to ensure that nobody who scored less than 200 had a chance. But, this year, we are saying that anybody who scores up to 120 has a chance. With 200, we have never filled our quota in the last 10 years. Some of those who scored over 200 do not have five credits in their O level results.

And you cannot be admitted if you don't have five credits. Those who are talking have not even dissected the problem, yet they are making recommendations. Other agencies all over the world, like the UKEAS in the United Kingdom, also rank candidates. Some of them do not even conduct any examination. Our examination is not a qualifying examination, it is a ranking examination. What that means is that you can't admit anybody unless he is qualified. What qualifies an individual is the O level, not the UTME. The children of those who are objecting to this decision go to the UK to study. Do they write the UTME there? They are unfair to the common man who has not stolen money to study in Ghana and the UK. It is part of a class war that the poor man must be kept under.

This is a ranking examination and this is a decision of all vice-chancellors, provosts and rectors. Commentators cannot claim to know more than these people do because they are commenting out of ignorance. If you have 10 spaces and five of your children are qualified, then you look for a way of ranking them. You can use age. It does not mean that the number six child is not qualified. But, because he came sixth, then you take the first five.

And you can decide on three male children and two female children. So, the fourth male child will not say that you are unfair because there is a parameter. So, our examination is for ranking purposes. We want to rank all qualified candidates and what makes them qualified is the O level. As I speak with you, there was no time in the last 10 years that we have filled 70 per cent of the quota. The colleges of education and polytechnics are there doing nothing. And they kept on admitting students under the table. We are saying no more under-the-table deals. Come and tell us what you are doing under the table and let us see it. But people are commenting on matters that that they are not familiar with.

But 120/400 is a far cry from a pass mark…

I have answered that question. It is not the UTME that qualifies the candidate for admission. It is a ranking examination. We are not telling you to admit this or that candidate. Let me give you an example. Someone scores 300 and another scores 140, the person with 300 has four credits and the person with 140 has five credits. What it means is that you cannot take the candidate with 300 and you cannot also admit the candidate with 140. That is what we have been doing. What we are now saying is that JAMB is a clearing house. That is why people are faking our results and for them, it is a do or die affair. This is because we have created an unnecessary hurdle. Everywhere in the world, what qualifies candidates is the O level. The same thing applies to us. But because we do not have enough space, we have set an examination for them to rank them. There is no pass or fail with the UTME. We are not saying that universities should leave somebody with 230 and take another with 140.

Let me give you another example. We have never filled 50 per cent of the quota for Physics in the last 10 years. Not that there are no individuals who want to study Physics, but because they did not meet the cut-off point. You are paying the lecturers, but the classrooms are vacant. And, if the candidate is fortunate enough to have parents who can sponsor him to Ghana, he will go to that country with his O level and come back with the same degree. He will now be boasting to his colleagues who were not fortunate enough to have a father who can pay their transport fare.

The belief has always been that our universities are oversubscribed…

I am in a position to know and I know that they are not oversubscribed. There are institutions that are oversubscribed, but they are few. Tell some institutions, maybe more than five, that have in the last 10 years, filled 70 per cent of their admission capacities. It is because there is a mismatch. You ask universities to admit 60 per cent of science students and 40 per cent of those who studied humanities. But what the school system is producing is 70 per cent Arts students and 30 per cent Science students.

How do you react to arguments that this was done to assist private universities to lower their standard and accommodate these candidates?

That is not correct. I have no reason to encourage private universities. But, having said that, for God's sake, what is bad in encouraging private universities? You allowed them to be established, you set up regulatory agencies for them and you abandon them. I travelled to Uganda and discovered that 40 per cent of the students in private universities in Kampala are Nigerians. I went to their classrooms and took pictures with them. They did not sit for the UTME, but because their parents are comfortable, they want to oppress the children of the poor.

Do you see public universities adjusting their cut-off marks with the latest development?..

Universities are universities. They have the right, under the law, to admit whom they want to admit. All these people commenting, you will see their reaction when they start to see results. I am not afraid of controversy. I know where I am going and they are the ones who are just commenting casually. I have a goal. I want to appeal to people to be patient and reserve their comments. Let us see the results. I have been in this for 40 years. Why can't you credit me with the fact that I had the opportunity of being the chairman of the Academic Planners of Nigeria Universities, where we plan academic matters? I had the fortune of being the chairman, Committee of Vice-Chancellors, I had the opportunity of coordinating the association in West Africa and I had the opportunity of being the president of the association in Africa. Don't you think that I would have studied the situation?

How do you react to the fact that facilities in our institutions are overstretched?

What we have done has not increased quota. We have taken all those into consideration. Not JAMB alone, but also the NUC, NCC and the NBTE. We have fixed a quota, based on availableg facilities. We are not telling schools to overshoot their quota, we are saying, "Bring those people who are roaming the streets into the classrooms to fill the quota." What correlation do facilities and that has to do? I am not the one who fixed the quota.




If you can't be kind, be quiet. If you don't believe, be quiet... The miracle at the Samaria gate



When Helping others, we are actually helping Ourselves

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY. A group of 50 people attended a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped and started giving each person a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room. Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their respective names written on within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their names, pushing and colliding with each other, and there was utter chaos. At the end of 5 minutes, no one could find their own balloons. Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloons. The speaker began: This is exactly what is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all over the place, not knowing where it is. Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Help them Find their happiness and you will get your own happiness too. And this is the purpose of human life... Learn to put a smile on someone's face, and you will also smile in due course.​

<Food for thought>
L E S S O N : when you're making others to succeed in life you're also a success. Power of team work🔥


Stop

It's end of my first day of school...Miss Ugo asks us to hug each other.
I don't like hugs because it is always always painful. I don't know why we have to hug even in school.
I didn't want to disobey Miss Ugo and become a bad pupil.
So I turned away from the class and began to remove my clothes.
After removing my clothes and also my pants, I looked around for a clean space to lie down.
I found a space, laid down and spread my legs wide open. I wondered why everyone is taking time to get ready for 'hug'. Someone has to take the lead, I guess.
My teacher didn't look very pleased, judging from her expression...Some of the kids covered their faces.
"Poor kids" I thought, still lying on the floor.
"They don't even know what a hug is" I continued in my head of course.
My teacher is approaching me, she looks angry now. I could tell because her cheeks are red. My mum's face is usually that red whenever she is washing my body and I tell her my "Bum Bum" Is paining me. So my mum will get angry and her cheeks will turn red, sometimes she will cry and not say anything.
I don't want my teacher to cry, so I got up. I'm beginning to get worried because I am still the only person who has no clothes on.
I still can't understand why my whole class does not know what a hug is or how to do it.
Well, this once, maybe this once I have to believe my daddy. "This is a special kind of hug, Lucy" he would say amidst sweats. "It's only for special girls" he would continue.
Maybe I really am special.
"Here! Put on your clothes and follow me" Miss Ugo shrieked angrily.
In our proprietress's office. I told "Big mummy" (That's what we were told to call her) and Miss Ugo how my daddy hugs me every other night.
They were both in tears as I tell them that, the only part of hugs that I hated the most is when my daddy tries out his fingers one after the other until one fits inside my bumbum.
It's already school over and my daddy will be mad if I don't wait in my class like he had instructed.
Big mummy gives Miss Ugo a look, she picks up her desk phone and dials a number. Miss Ugo takes me outside and puts her arm around me...It felt so good.
"That is a hug" Miss Ugo whispers and breaks down in tears again.
"How can this be a hug? It wasn't painful " I thought.
My daddy is around and Miss Ugo asks him to see Big mummy. Shortly after, 2 police officers come in and enter big mummy's office.
I can hear myself talk from big mummy's cell phone. I sounded so funny, I let out a light chuckle.
The police comes out of big mummy's office with my father. His hands are tied behind his back. He looks angry. I know I am in trouble.
We didn't go home. We went to the hospital in big mummy's car. Miss Ugo was beside me the whole time until the Doctor asks me to follow him. He removes my pant, collects torchlight from the nurse and looks into my bum bum. I closed my eyes expecting pains but he doesn't put his fingers inside. He puts off the light and talks to the nurse who jots down what he said. He helps me wear my pant and takes me back to meet big mummy and Miss Ugo.
Back in Big Mummy's car, Miss Ugo calls out our address for Big mummy.
We get to my house and my mum comes out. She doesn't say anything as usual. She just brings out a big placard that reads "I AM DEAF and ALSO DUMB"
Big mummy and Miss Ugo started crying again. I have had enough so I joined them to cry and my mum followed suit.

In time like this

Dear all,

We are going through a recession in Nigeria. This is the time to help someone out! Things are rough for a lot of people, even the ones one may think are rich or doing well. If you can help someone please do.
This is the time to help your gateman pay his children's school fees. This is the time to give him some food items. This also goes for your maid, give her some transport money if she/ he isn't a live-in.
Buy that colleague lunch. He or she is probably not dieting, they just can't afford it. Give some colleagues a lift even if to a certain point.
Buy your friend petrol for their car and or generator. He's not walking because he wants to exercise.
Give that Uncle or Auntie N10k, they're probably in dire circumstances hence they're ringing off your phone.
Patronise farmers if you can. It's cheaper to get your goods from them. Eat more greens - they're cheaper.
Don't go to people's houses expecting to be fed. It's rude and times are hard. Be thankful if they feed you, it's not easy for anyone.
Give out you and your kids old clothes and shoes to people who truly need them.
Pay an undergraduate's school fees. Recommend a good graduate if you know of a job opening. That may be the only way he or she can feed their parents and siblings.
Let neighbours fetch water from you if you have a borehole.
Feed a homeless child or person. You never know who you're helping. That might be the next Einstein.
Pay someone's hospital bill, it could be life or death. You could literally be saving a life.
We all know how prices have doubled . Some families may not have food on festival day, feed a family. Invite them over. People won't tell you what they're going through so be sensitive and see through the facade.
If you live abroad and can spare some change for poorer family members please send it, it's no joke. Folks can barely feed daily.
There are so many little things that can be done, please search your heart and be creative to come up with other ways you can give. Folks are hungry, angry and tired. Leave the government, we are the welfare system in Nigeria.
None of these are compulsory please. It's just a way to help each other out. Do what you can. If you're already doing any of these and can afford to, then well done, if you can do more please do. Keep being kind. We are a very religious lot, this is the time to practice what we preach and the essence of every religion - love! The law of giving never ever fails, believe it or not!
Show love to someone today, tomorrow!
God bless you as you do🙏. #copied cos it touched my heart.

Open Heavens Daily Devotional

Open Heavens
24 August 2017 Thursday Daily Devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye

THE CHURCH OF GOD III – Thursday August 24th 2017

Memorise:
That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. Ephesians 5:27
Read: Ephesians 1:1-4 (KJV)

1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:

1:2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Bible in one year: 1st Chronicles 6-7, Ezekiel 30:5-19, Hymn: Sing hymn 6

MESSAGE:
The Church of God is a living entity that thrives upon the life of God. The life of Jesus circulates freely through His Church, just as blood flows through the human body. The Church of God feeds on heavenly food, which is the word of God, breathes the atmosphere of heaven, which are the commandments and principles that guide her operations, and thrives on the life of God that flows through her veins, which is the Holy Spirit. By implication therefore, the primary qualities and attributes of God automatically become the primary characteristics and nature of His Church.

In Isaiah 6:3b, the primary quality and nature of God is announced in this proclamation from Heaven:

Holy, holy holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory."

For this reason, today's Bible reading declares that the Church of God was chosen by God to be holy and without blame before Him in love. Holiness is the moral excellence of God that unifies His attributes and is expressed through His actions. The Bible presents holiness as a nature that includes moral purity, separation from evil and a devotion of God's glory. God is Holy, His Name is Holy, His words and everything about Him is Holy. As a result, in the Old Testament, the place of worship, the altar, the priests and the people had to be sanctified and made holy before rendering service to God (Exodus 29:44). To be dedicated to God's service, we also in this new dispensation must be set apart from the sins of this world. Hebrews 10:22 says,

"Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water."

God's holiness provides a pattern of His people to emulate (1st Peter 1:16). Holiness simply means separation from sin and devotion to God (2nd Timothy 2:19). As a child of God, sin should not have dominion over you (Romans 6:14). You are expected to make holiness your lifestyle by walking in the fear of God always (2nd Corinthians 7:1). To this end, Colossians 3:5a says,
 
"Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth;"

This means you should put to death or destroy everything that is carnal in you, using the sword of the Spirit (Hebrews 4:12). It means your heart should continually be cleansed from carnality, using the water of God's word. Even though you are genuinely born again, your body still has passions, desires and appetites that must be allowed to break out beyond their legitimate bounds in the Lord. By holy, and be sanctified!
Prayer Point
Father, grant me grace to keep myself under the control of Your Holy Spirit in Jesus' Name.

The Principle of New Beginning

THE PRINCIPLES OF NEW BEGINNINGS
(A DOSAGE FOR PARENTS LOOKING FOR NEW SCHOOLS) - Part 1

SOURCE: The Diary of a Man Lost in Education – Mec Collins

PHILOSOPHY: Many parents end up in wrong places because they lack basic knowledge and skills in getting new schools.

ABSTRACT: Every school has minimal, average and high strengths and weaknesses, only upon your digestive comprehension of this article will you be able to accurately classify a school but unfortunately, a school's status changes with time, ups and downs are parts of every school system and should you beckon a school's downs, you will never achieve a trace of satisfaction hence, the great need to persevere with your child's school's weaknesses and get married to its strengths.

INTRODUCTION: Just like in searching for a life partner or a wife or husband material, a lot of far and close assessments must be skillfully, patiently, interrogatively and practically employed beyond the words of mouth.

APPRECIATION: I thank everyone who would patiently study-digest this piece and do hope earnestly that it leaves great impacts on every individual who reads it.

SECTIONS: This work is categorized into four thus; General Attributes of a Possible More Consistent Good School, Dos in Choosing a New School, Don'ts in Choosing a New School and Common Mistakes Parents make in Choosing New Schools.

GENERAL ATTRIBUTES OF A POSSIBLE MORE CONSISTENT GOOD SCHOOLS

A good school is a school you can tolerate. So, a school good to you may not be good to me because no school is all good. So, settle for one, be careful in choosing that one because it is an uneasy task to change a school. A good school is not by number, structure, location, owner, staff and so on but by mission, vision, consistency, products and simplicity.

DO' S IN CHOOSING A NEW AND DURABLE SCHOOL

In choosing a school, be guided by the following and a few others:

1. Patience : You can't be in haste while in search for a new school, ask many questions and watch the consistency of the answers, possibly request to watch teachers teaching and students learning, be relaxed and try to get everyone at relaxed states. Do sampling of opinions and sometimes try to act against the average opinions.

2. Time: Give enough time, one visit will not be enough, go when the learners and teachers are on and request for their yearbooks, bulletins, logbooks and so on to read while waiting at the reception. Take tour of their websites, social media platforms and other sources of their profiles.

3. Familiarity: You need to be familiar with the location of the school, the alternative routes and the mentality of the descendants and inhabitants of its surroundings. Don't go to schools that would psychology draw you aback of your exposures and education.

4. Convenience: Ensure picking or dropping your child or the child going and coming are both finance, health and time healthy, just like renting a house, it is not making initial payments that matters but renewals, go for what you can maintain on the long run at slight upwards or downwards in your income and schedules.

5. Consistent Income: Sizing your financial class is too important here, ensure you proportionate your steady income to overhead expenses in ratio to your continuous footing of the school bills. If you are in business, consider how established the business is and if a salary earner, your alternative investments as you can lose your job at any time unforeseen.

6. Road Network: For sure, some look for schools during dry seasons only to start looking for new schools in rainy seasons, if you are new in a place, ask questions about the roads. Not only rain, in traffic overwork so that your child doesn't get exhausted before getting to school or home every day or getting late home or to school. See to ensure there is an alternative road that is motorable if you are mobile. Some roads to some schools are flooded on small rains or very mouldy and child-unfriendly, be sure to find out. I don't believe that with so many schools out there, you need to go afar to fetch education for your child.

7. Religion: This is vital, be ensure of the religion of the school before you opt for it, is it specific religion based, mixed or undecided?

8. Security: There are some badly located schools amidst smoking ends, drug points, bad meeting places, illegal business places, brothels, clubs and moral forbidden places, could you ensure you do meticulous findings? Not only that, the water sources, waste disposals, and other health security devices must be in place.

9. Child safety compliance: Simple safety measures like fire extinguishers, emergency exits, safety signs, floors, perimeter fencing, etc are unavoidable watch-outs

10. Collective decision: Don't just send your spouse and sit back to beckon on what he or she will say coupled with the bills you can afford, be involved, sample your views and disagree to agree, if not, the other will most likely always put all blames of the school's shortcomings on the infield marshal who sourced and recommended the school. Most times women are involved solely, most women are very ill-behaved, they are after bargaining with any school ready to play along in getting her own share and so on and believe me, women are easily lured to wrong choices. This is though not obtainable in rare women.

DON'TS IN CHOOSING A NEW SCHOOL

There may be more to the following don'ts but most of them are:

1. The School is big: This is the number one priority of the rich people, the size of the container not necessarily its contents as initial factor.

2. The fees are high: This has always been a misleading factor; everyone believes that the amount a school charges determines its quality. This is a universal erroneous belief; so many tokenism schools out there out-perform most of such schools.

3. The environment is luxurious: Modern schools in modern environments having modern facilities are found to grow within an abnormal short period of time. Why? Education is a luxurious demand. Yet, the children of the poor, attending poor schools, in most cases, go into the labour market only to threaten the people from the other end if at all such people find their ways into the market.

4. The school uniform is fine: Fine, if this is your reason, very soon, you will pull it off your child for another uniform, a school may have good designers in fashion but bad ones in management or standard, that one is creative doesn't make him productive.

5. The children speak well: Speaking is an art, education is more a science. Many are good speakers of English who are only known for grammatical expressions.

6. The teachers dress well: Packaging is a part of it not its whole, if this is what attracts you to a school, welcome to one-chance drive.

7. The front-desk officer is attractive: Some are carried away by these professional customer care ambassadors of the schools. Look, these people are on their jobs, they have been well trained to do the job in such ways. Their appearances are conditioned to suit the job as some schools even go extra miles to spend extra on their appearances, that should not automatically magnet you to a school and in case you think enrolling your child or ward will bring you closer to the beautiful or handsome front-desk person, I just wonder how many hands will be on him or her. Don't allow professional smiles, touches and treats deceive you, you are strictly on your own. Remember that the beautiful ones are not yet born, so, there are probably more beautiful or handsome front-desk officers in other schools, will you keep moving?

8. The School Owner is always on ground: This must be a small school, standard schools have branches, school owners can't be in each branch all the while. In fact, millennium schools are owned by boards, please wake up. Today's School Owners have also learned to involve in other businesses especially training of other schools in areas of their strengths. No School Owner of good quality is stationery today, they are mobile.

9. The School Owner speaks well: Have you wondered if he or she teaches the staff talk less, the learners and if yes, how often and how many classes? His or her great accent or grammatical luggage may most likely not have direct impacts on your child.

10. I was told they teach well: This depends on people who said so to you, are they those working there and looking for how to pull you there or those already there who may be friends to the school or just trying to ensure you are where they are. You can't hold on this to choose a school for your child.

11. The School has a school bus: It is usually painful to prioritize this although I understand you may not be able to combine work with picking and dropping your child but please always go abroad beyond the school bus availability.

12. They go on excursions: Field trips and excursions are teaching methods in education but not absolute. In education, no singular method is recommended the most effective as a good lesson must have the combination of several teaching methods, so why should you just base on excursions to choose on a school?

13. The School does lesson and has longer closing time: You may be looking for people who would keep your child longer but the truth is, it is not how long but how well.

14. My friend, family or neighbour works there: Will he or she be there for as long as your child has to stay for continuity and come to think of that, what productive difference does this make on your child?



15. It is owned by my church or mosque member: This will always disappoint you. Holiness is bound in the building of a religious place, once you are out, the true colour of everyone is clear. These set of people have been found to give room to greater negligence and unprofessional treats to their consumers who are their members in the same religious worship places.

16. It is owned by a church, Pastor or Imam: Is a school a religious place? Does this automatically ensure your child's all-round-success? Please, this is not a point to consider. Some of you have selfish motives for going, believing he or she is a religious leader so would be considerate in charges, in payment grace and so on, you have just lost it, very soon, he or she will be too busy to even remember there is a school under his or her administration.

17. The school is approved: Whether a school has been approved or not, this is not an express guarantee of excellent practices or standard. Lest I forget, most of those schools you see 'GOVERNMENT APPROVED' have really not gotten approval or have only been incorporated not approved by the Ministry of Education who don't even recognize incorporations on schools. Your incorporation is just to be taken as a business unit free to own bank accounts and carry out other business transactions while approval with the ministry is the super and main security on approval that any school could secure.

18. My child was happy going for summer there: Child's psychology is highly important here and I will also back it up with the Law of Diminishing Returns. Children like new places, friends and things in general. Your child must have been enticed by one thing and there you go, carried away by the child singing it at home that he or she likes the place. Mind you, schools tend to go an unsustainable extra mile during summer to impress the kids, this is why some schools will even make their summer fees very ridiculous to just get children to attend then leave other things to them. Please be smart. The little difference that has been made on your child is on sustenance base, in strong doubt and you know what, after your child gets fully registered, the child starts disliking some if not a lot and most times, tells you after a while that the previous school is better if at all you dig deeper.

19. Their handbill is fine: Excuse me, that handbill was designed by a graphics designer who most likely is not even a staff of that school and even if he or she is, how does the beauty of handbills add to your child's success?
20. The School won in a competition: Who did they compete with, did the children they took for the competition start all their education lives with them, are you sure the school is the sole former of such children academically or in the skill they won on or those children have private teachers from other sources doing the bulk of the jobs or acquired their excellent skills from their churches, mosques or other social places? Does taking your child to that school automatically get him or her such a winner and how consistent is even the winning for the school? By the way, who judged the winning, what parameters were used in judgment, are you sure it was not bought?

21. I was given good discount: Can you please never mention this? This is always a trap. This is a no guarantee of excellence.

22. My wife says she likes it: Did I just hear you say your wife or maybe your husband? Wonderful! Choice of school must be a joint one not one person's likeness or otherwise. Look, your spouse must have based on some erroneous reasons to insist to you his or her likeness. Please discuss all.





Which type of bone are you

#SchoolOwnerAndEducators

Every organization is structured from four kind of bones.

We have the jaw bone; this set of people do all the talkings but does little less.

Another is the wish bone who wish others are doing the work.

Also is the knuckle bone which criticize everything that anyone else tries to do.

Fortunately we have the backbone which get under the job and do most of the job.

My fellow people, which bone are you?

Good Morning All!

If you have lost anything, be grateful because God is the reason you have not lost everything

Hello my precious friend, how are you.
I learnt something at the Halleluyah convention which was not easy to digest but after sometimes it made a lot of sense. Please reflect on these and see if it made sense to you as well and if it does keep being grateful to the One who owns everything including you.
" *If you have lost anything, be grateful because God is the reason you have not lost everything* ".

THEME: *THE CHURCH OF GOD II*

MEMORISE:

Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
Ephesian 4:13

READ: 1 Corinthians 1:1-11

1:1 Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,

1:2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their's and our's:

1:3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

1:4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

1:5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;

1:6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:

1:7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

1:8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.

1:11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.

MESSAGE:

The Church of God is the embodiment of Christ here on earth and for all eternity (Ephesians 1:23). God will continue to inhabit the praises of His people, and His people will continue to live in Him and worship His majesty forever (John 14:16). The Church of God on earth is the representation of his personality among men. She is the Body of Christ, filled and controlled by the Holy Spirit, and so, she renders all honour and adoration to God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Although the Church is operating in the world, there is no room for the world in the Church (John 17:16).

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!" Psalm133:1

The Church of God is called to live in blameless unity. Unity is a characteristic that distinguishes God's people. We derive this characteristic from the nature of God in us; therefore, God expects His Church to manifest unity, through commitment to one another. In essence, the Church of God is one, because it is founded on one gospel, united in one Lord and walking in one Spirit (Ephesian 4:4-6). However, the unity of the Church is constantly under attack because the enemy knows she is unstoppable when she walks in unity. Because it is inherent in our fallen human nature for people to be divisive, unity needs to be continually maintained and actively expressed in fellowship. The fellowship that Christians share as a result of our common union with God through Jesus Christ is expressed as we share the triumphs and challenges of life together. The Bible strongly emphasizes the importance of Christian unity. Acts 4:32 says,

"And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common."

God exhorts the Church to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace (Ephesian 4:3-16). We as Christians are to preserve the oneness that the Spirit imparts to all who are baptized into the Body of Christ, which is identical to the oneness of the Holy Trinity. The unity of the Church should be evident in our love for one another, in worshipping together and in a practical commitment to one another, which is demonstrated through deep concern for the weak and a readiness to provide for the poor and needy.

PRAYER POINT:

Father, please baptise Your Church with true love and bind the Body of Christ together with a strong cord of unity in Jesus' Name.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
1 Chronicle 4-5, Ezekiel 29:10-30:4

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

HYMN 18: ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIER

1. Onward Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before.
Christ, the royal Master,
Leads against the foe;
Forward into battle,
See, His banners go!

Refrain:
Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus,
Going on before.

2. At the name of Jesus
Satan's host doth flee;
On then, Christian soldiers,
On to victory!
Hell's foundations quiver
At the shout of praise:
Brothers, lift your voices,
Loud your anthems raise!
[Refrain]

3. Like a mighty army
Moves the Church of God:
Brothers, we are treading
Where the saints have trod;
We are not divided,
All one Body we—
One in faith and Spirit,
One charity.
[Refrain]

4. Onward, then, ye people!
Join our happy throng;
Blend with ours your voices
In the triumph song.
Glory, laud and honor
Unto Christ, the King;
This through countless ages
Men and angels sing.
[Refrain]

Sad Story of a poor molested girl child

It's end of my first day of school...Miss Ugo asks us to hug each other.
I don't like hugs because it is always always painful. I don't know why we have to hug even in school.
I didn't want to disobey Miss Ugo and become a bad pupil.
So I turned away from the class and began to remove my clothes.
After removing my clothes and also my pants, I looked around for a clean space to lie down.
I found a space, laid down and spread my legs wide open. I wondered why everyone is taking time to get ready for 'hug'. Someone has to take the lead, I guess.
My teacher didn't look very pleased, judging from her expression...Some of the kids covered their faces.
"Poor kids" I thought, still lying on the floor.
"They don't even know what a hug is" I continued in my head of course.
My teacher is approaching me, she looks angry now. I could tell because her cheeks are red. My mum's face is usually that red whenever she is washing my body and I tell her my "Bum Bum" Is paining me. So my mum will get angry and her cheeks will turn red, sometimes she will cry and not say anything.
I don't want my teacher to cry, so I got up. I'm beginning to get worried because I am still the only person who has no clothes on.
I still can't understand why my whole class does not know what a hug is or how to do it.
Well, this once, maybe this once I have to believe my daddy. "This is a special kind of hug, Lucy" he would say amidst sweats. "It's only for special girls" he would continue.
Maybe I really am special.
"Here! Put on your clothes and follow me" Miss Ugo shrieked angrily.
In our proprietress's office. I told "Big mummy" (That's what we were told to call her) and Miss Ugo how my daddy hugs me every other night.
They were both in tears as I tell them that, the only part of hugs that I hated the most is when my daddy tries out his fingers one after the other until one fits inside my bumbum.
It's already school over and my daddy will be mad if I don't wait in my class like he had instructed.
Big mummy gives Miss Ugo a look, she picks up her desk phone and dials a number. Miss Ugo takes me outside and puts her arm around me...It felt so good.
"That is a hug" Miss Ugo whispers and breaks down in tears again.
"How can this be a hug? It wasn't painful " I thought.
My daddy is around and Miss Ugo asks him to see Big mummy. Shortly after, 2 police officers come in and enter big mummy's office.
I can hear myself talk from big mummy's cell phone. I sounded so funny, I let out a light chuckle.
The police comes out of big mummy's office with my father. His hands are tied behind his back. He looks angry. I know I am in trouble.
We didn't go home. We went to the hospital in big mummy's car. Miss Ugo was beside me the whole time until the Doctor asks me to follow him. He removes my pant, collects torchlight from the nurse and looks into my bum bum. I closed my eyes expecting pains but he doesn't put his fingers inside. He puts off the light and talks to the nurse who jots down what he said. He helps me wear my pant and takes me back to meet big mummy and Miss Ugo.
Back in Big Mummy's car, Miss Ugo calls out our address for Big mummy.
We get to my house and my mum comes out. She doesn't say anything as usual. She just brings out a big placard that reads "I AM DEAF and ALSO DUMB"
Big mummy and Miss Ugo started crying again. I have had enough so I joined them to cry and my mum followed suit.

Learning from our imperfection

Some of the most important things we can communicate to our children is  that feelings are *Okay*
Mistakes are *fixable* and there's nothing they could do that would push you away or make you love them less.
Behaviour is not perfect, it is communication.
Embrace the imperfect and show your child they are worth holding close to your heart.
No matter what! Yes!

Good morning

Health Implications of being a Teacher

All those who r in teaching profession👇🏻👇🏻

Dear Teachers...Please read🙏
Teachers have a very unique problem with regard to appetite and satiety. On an average, they are speaking loudly for 4-5 hours in addition to the regular daily conversations. Unfortunately, the calories that they burn with speaking do not help in weight management and their fitness levels.

The practical problems:

1. They build up a big appetite because of the constant talking.
2. They develop wind or gas in their stomachs. The wind makes it difficult for them to eat even though they are hungry.
3. Eating on time may not be always possible because they have back to back classes apart from the routine administrative work.
4. Most teachers forget to drink water as they go to different classes and do not carry water bottles with them.

What are the health problems they face?

1. Acidity issues due to the gas formation and inability to eat.
2. Acid reflux which leaves them with a dry cough or a sore throat.
3. Water retention and weight gain due to inadequate water consumption.
4. Skin problems due to less water consumption.
5. Hormonal imbalance due to inadequate water consumption leading to weight gain.

What can you do?

1. As difficult as it may sound, carry a small bottle of water and a small snack like biscuits with you at all times. The chances of you drinking water when it is readily available are much higher.
2. Stay sufficiently hydrated throughout the day. Aim for a minimum of 1 litre of water during work hours.
3. Do a plain water gargle once in the morning and once before bedtime. If you tend to have dry cough or acid reflux frequently, use saunf water for gargling. Saunf or fennel seeds are traditionally used in India to reduce the mouth acidity after a meal. The seeds can be dropped into a glass of water, allowed to stand for 5 mins and then strained. The clear water can be used as a gargle.
4. Eat every 2 hours. You can either split up your lunch into 2 packets or just eat half your lunch as a mid morning snack.
5. Always eat biscuits along with the coffee or tea during your breaks. The biscuits soak up the beverage and do not allow acid reflux.

If you are in the teaching profession, please understand that there will be fewer of you as the years go by. It takes a big heart to be in this profession. For you, you could be just a teacher but to your students you are their hero! Please take care of your health for your students' sake. Please forward this to your/our teacher friends.  Received  from one  lecturer in unilag.

Basic principles of securing a friendly and protective environment for our students

basic principles of Securing A Friendly and Protective Environment for our precious children either as Primary or Secondary Caregivers
So securing A Friendly and Protective Environment for our precious children begin with our commitment to do so recognising that the number one responsibility of a school is not to teach but to protect… Because our precious children do not feel protected learning cannot take place…

The commitment to secure a protective environment for our precious children does not answer to wishful thinking… It answers to meticulous planning…

Permit me to say that Securing A Safe and Protective Environment for our precious children begins with a system which must have at least 5 components

So how do we know that a system is effective either at home or in school? Simple we turn to the child… An environment is not safe and protective for the child until child feels safe… A child does not present himself/herself for learning or any activity for that matter until he/she feels safe and protected… Feels at home
Questions
5 components which are :

Permit to share with you the fundamentals of the these five components of a system before sharing with you same: Prologue
Think the CHILD…Think TODAY…Think the FUTURE™…According to Fredrick Douglass 'It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.' Therefore, it is Taiwo Akinlami's fundamental approach to Child Protection that Enlightenment is Superior to Enforcement™

Responses
Enlightenment is superior to Enforcement. Hmmm i like that.
I guess by both the school and the parents?
I feel u

Systems Approach to Securing A Friendly and Protective Environment for our precious refer to coordinated and professionally established prevention and response measures for the protection of the precious children under our care from all forms of abuse like physical, sexual, emotional, neglect and any other act or omission that are not in the best interest of the precious children under our care

The safety of our children is paramount

My final words to you will be that securing a Friendly and Protective Environment for our precious Children will require us to pay actual attention as primary and secondary caregivers... We may also need to invest in knowledge and skill in this areas and work with experts as organisations... The bottom line is the only major threat to our institution of learning today is abuse because once a child is abused he/she is distracted from learning... I can tell you categorically because my childhood was very rough and full of abuse... I was physically abused, lost my virginity at the age 6 by a female neighbour my mother left me with... As a child, I had already started having sexual relationship with other children, as a teenager I had started having anal sex, in today's parlance you call it homosexuality, as a teenager, i have sexually molested our neighbour's daughter... I suffered emotional abuse also and my parents were not available... I became a dysfunctional adult... I was not suffering from low self esteem... I suffered from no self, no esteem... I found help 20 years ago when I gave my life to Christ and that was the beginning of a turning point in my life and knowing the impact of wrong upbringing, i have dedicated my life to ensuring that our precious children are protected working with parents and all who work with children... I know that the impact of wrong upbringing is eternal except by divine intervention....

Escaping Hunger in the Land

ESCAPING THE HUNGER IN THE LAND - Part 5

5. THOU SHALL NOT STEAL

When life becomes tough, when condition becomes critical, when your situation makes mockery of you, please don't forget one of the principles of becoming wealthy: DO NOT STEAL!

Some weeks ago, a little boy stole some fruit, when he was questioned, we discovered he was hungry. Someone among us gave him a plate of food and a bottle of water. But thieves are not lucky all the time. Sometimes they get lynched.

While we acknowledge the fact that some people steal just to eat; it is clearly not the way to go. Rather than steal, work with your hands. Enjoy the reward of your labour. God blesses work not theft.

Our society has changed, people are more concerned about what you have and not how you got it.

Recently, a policeman made a comment that got me thinking. It was a case of online hacking gone bad. The funds were trapped somewhere and the hackers needed the money at all cost. The policeman had been promised a percentage if he could help get the funds. In his "zeal" he asked what the business of the bankers was with the source of the money. According to him: "In this economy, who bothers about how people get money?" It is in times like this I almost agree with someone who said "Police Na thief". Well, at least that one is a certified thief.

But the issue is not with the police. It is a societal ill. Before that policeman joined the force, he was a part of the society. He picked his ideology from society. The policeman, the corrupt politician, the "yahoo boy" are all products of the Society.

I read something years ago that completely changed my orientation. This is it:

"Like the partridge that gathers a brood, which she did not hatch and sits on eggs which she has not laid, so is he who gets riches by unjust means and not by right. He will leave them or they will leave him in the midst of his days, and at his end he will be a fool." (Jeremiah 17:11. Amplified)

That did it for me. I just made up my mind not to be a fool. If I steal, I may satisfy today's hunger but I will never satisfy the hunger of reputation, the hunger of God's blessing; I will have no defence against the curse that will come upon me or the pains I will put those in my lineage through.

To escape the hunger in the land, work and do not steal (we will talk about work subsequently). When you take what is meant for common good and use for yourself and family, you bring a curse on yourself, your children and their children. I know folks whose parents stole and who now have to contend with all sorts of evil that plague them. They might have 10million dollars, but their problems are worth a billion.

For my father's age mate stealing government money; for the official diverting funds meant for the poor; for the young boy engaged in scamming people online (they actually argue that they are paying back the white men that enslaved Africa); for the guy who breaks into homes to steal and those who rob at gunpoint; think once more about what you're doing. It will not  help you escape hunger. Instead when punishment comes on you, there will be none to deliver.

Prayer points for our children

Today's Prayer Points for Your Children

Pastor Bisi Adewale

You can't outsource parenting, you can't delegate it, nanny cannot help, house help cannot do it, teachers are not trained for it, and the experts that can do it are Daddy and Mummy.

Let us pray :

1. Father, I stand against every spirit of frustration that has been appointed against my children  in Jesus name.

2. Lord, open my eyes and ears of my children to receive divine revelation and message concerning their life

3. Father, give my children dominion over the power of sin and manifestation of the work of the flesh. Gal. 5 vs. 19-20, Rev. 12vs11.

4. I refuse to be a failure in all my endeavors/undertakings in life in Jesus name.

Go do the necessary check up

And so on Monday, i decided to service my car. Engine oil #6K , oil filter #3K , labour and diagnostic cost #10K.  To cap it all i filled the gas tank up  with just #12K . Total cost #31K!
So as i was going back to the office on Tuesday a terrible thought began to gather in my mind. I asked myself, how much have I spent this year to service my body? We have just lost a dear friend and colleague to the cold hands of death. I was told he only complained of toothache and slight headache and then death struck! For how long will I keep thinking all is well with my health in-spite of all odds? I drive through dust at times, inhale all kind of unclean air, drink some water I don't even know their sources, face computer and phone with my eyes everyday, expose to phone radiation every hour and on and on and on.

If my car could gulp over  #30K at an instant just for fine tuning i think i deserve to diagnose and upgrade my system.
Who is doing the tough job, you  or your car?
When last did you check up your system my 30yrs and above old friends? Try service your eyes, ears, vital organs like heart, liver and lungs. Check your cholesterol, blood-sugar level and do  urinalysis. It could make a difference.

Lastly, we need to know that d body needs vitamins, minerals and amino-acid to perform optimally but unfortunately, all of these are lacking in almost all of our meals in nigeria. I hope and pray that someday, Nigerians will start feeding to LIVE rather than feeding to DIE!! Enjoy the rest of the week. Regards

Your kidneys deserve the best, so give it to them

HERE ARE THE TOP 6 CAUSE OF
KIDNEY DISEASE:
1. Delaying going to a toilet Keeping your urine in your bladder for
too long is a bad idea. A full bladder can cause bladder damage.
The urine that stays in the bladder multiplies bacteria quickly.
Once the urine refluxes back to the ureter and kidneys, the toxic
substances can result in kidney infections, then urinary tract
infections, and then nephritis, and even uremia. When nature calls
– do it as soon as possible.
2. Eating too much salt,You should eat no more than 5.8 grams of
salt daily.
3. Eating too much meat. Too much protein in your diet is harmful
for your kidneys. Protein digestion produces ammonia – a toxin
that is very destructive to your kidneys. More meat equals more
kidney damage.
4. Drinking too much caffeine Caffeine is a component of many
sodas and soft drinks. It raises your blood pressure and your
kidneys start suffering. So you should cut down the amount of
coke you drink daily.
5. Not drinking water. Our kidneys should be hydrated properly to
perform their functions well. If we don't drink enough, the toxins
can start accumulating in the blood, as there isn't enough fluid to
drain them through the kidneys. Drink more than 10 glasses of
water daily. There is an easy way to check if you are drinking
enough water: look at the colour of your urine; the lighter the
colour, the better.
6. Late treatment . Treat all your health problems properly and
have your health checked regularly. Let's help ourselves...God will
protect you and your family from every disease this year.
(3) Avoid these Tablets, they are very dangerous:
* D-cold
* Vicks Action-500
* Actified
* Coldarin
* Cosome
* Nice
* Nimulid
* Cetrizet-D
They contain Phenyl Propanol-Amide PPA. Which causes Strokes
& Are banned in USA

Doctors in the United States have found new cancer in human
beings, caused by Silver Nitro Oxide. Whenever you buy recharge
cards, don't scratch with your nails, as it contains Silver Nitro
Oxide coating and can cause skin cancer. Share this message with
your loved ones.
Important Health Tips:
Answer phone calls with the left ear.
Don't take your medicine with cold water....
Don't eat heavy meals after 5pm.
Drink more water in the morning, less at night.
Best sleeping time is from 10pm to 4 am.
Don't lie down immediately taking medicine or after meals.
When phone's battery is low to last bar, don't answer the
phone, bcos the radiation is 1000 times stronger.
A very good morning 2u, av a blessed weekend.




10 Grammatical Blunders Nigerians Make Regularly, That Have Become Normal.

10 Grammatical Blunders Nigerians Make Regularly, That Have Become Normal.

Trafficate/Trafficator

The correct word is "Indicator", when it's on a vehicle. When you use your indicator, the verb is "to indicate". The word trafficate doesn't exist in English. Trafficator is an obsolete word, used to describe an obsolete device on the side of a motor vehicle.

Night Vigil

A Vigil means a period of time when people remain quietly in a place at Night. So, really, there's no point adding Night to it when Vigils are known to mostly hold at Night. You may just want to call it a Vigil.

On/Off The Light

There isn't much to say about this grammatical blunder apart from the fact that each time you make that statement, make sure you add Switch to it. For example; Switch On the light/Switch Off the light. Can be used with any other object that can go On or Off

Reverse Back

Reverse already means; to change the direction, order, position, result, etc. of something to its opposite. So, if an object is in motion, it can be reversed. And when it is in reverse, it's surely coming back to it's initial position. No point adding Back to it.

Next Tomorrow

Most Nigerians generally use "Next Tomorrow" when speaking English. Please, stop murdering the English Language. The correct thing to say is; Day After Tomorrow.

Cattle Rearer

The word; Cattle Rearer does not exist in proper English dictionaries. Instead, you may say Cattle Herder. That's a more appropriate way of referring to people who raise/tend to cattle or other ruminant animals.

Convocate

Convocate is an archaic English word which means to call together or assemble but Nigerians mostly use it when they're graduating from tertiary institutions. Proper word is Convoke.

Plate Number

Most Nigerians including traffic law enforcement agents use the word Plate Number, which is very wrong. Number is supposed to come before Plate. So, basically, it is called Number Plate and not the other way round.

Barb/Barbing

This is very common among Nigerian men. Barb or Barbing does exist in the English dictionary but it has nothing to do with haircuts. You can go have your haircut at the Barbershop but you cannot Barb your hair because Barb means; a sharp projection near the end of an arrow, fish hook, or similar objects.

Short Knicker

Knickers ordinarily mean loose-fitting 'short' trousers gathered in at the knees. The British call it Knickers while Americans call it Shorts. Nigerians call it Short Knickers which is very wrong. It is either you call it Knickers or you call it Shorts.
