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 ar…

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 la…

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 ow…

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 …

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…

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 than…

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!#eachoneteachone

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.

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.

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 componentsSo 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 feel…

The safety of our children is paramount

Image
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 n…

Escaping Hunger in the Land

ESCAPING THE HUNGER IN THE LAND - Part 5 5. THOU SHALL NOT STEALWhen 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…

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?

Your kidneys deserve the best, so give it to them

Image
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 pro…

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

10 Grammatical Blunders Nigerians Make Regularly, That Have Become Normal.
Trafficate/TrafficatorThe 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 VigilA 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 LightThere 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 OffReverse BackReverse already means; to change the direction, order, position, result, etc. of something to its opp…

Don't leave them behind

Image
Gershom was the first son of  Moses, but we never really hear much about him.
This is as a result of one of the mistakes made by great men. Most great men leave their children behind while they train other men's children.
They unconsciously invest in their young, uneducated errand boys who go about with them. Little do the great men know, that while their children  are at home watching TV, the uneducated young errand boy that goes around with them is understudying and learning the keys to Sucess and greatness. Little do mothers know that as the house girl stays in the kitchen and the kids sit in the living room watching TV, they are empowering the uneducated village girl, and leaving their children behind. Little does the pastor know, that as he goes to church investing in other people's children, and he doesn't sit daily with his children discussing the Word of God, he is like a man who is repairing another man's car when his own car needs serious  attention. When a…
