Everybody is doing me…. The mysterious life of the electric eel This post resonated with me, so I am sharing it. It was posted on a forum I belong to. WHAT’S YOUR MINDSET? As I watched the National Geographic Channel on DSTV, I came to learn, for the first time, that the Fish called “The Electric Eel” is Electrophorus electricus. The fish is commonly found in the Amazon and generally in fresh waters. In the narration of the documentary, Electric Eels are mostly blind, although they are not born blind. I see them as such beautiful creatures and wondered how come they are blind? I then read about them and came to understand that these animals have three pairs of abdominal organs that produce electricity as a form of defensive mechanism against predators. Whenever the animal is under attack, it activates an electric field of up to 860 Volts (that is nearly 4 times the 220V electricity supplied to our homes) to electrocute its attacker. The Eel also requires rising to the surface of the water every 10 minutes in order to take in oxygen before going back under the water. Due to this routine, the fish has developed a mindset that it is vulnerable to attack due to its constant coming up to breathe and hence it is always on a ‘suspicious’ mode – constantly electrocuting its environment, even when it is not under attack. The sad effect is that in the course of continuous electrocution of its environment, its eyes are also electrocuted and hence causes its blindness! But then, as I watched this animal swimming around blindly and only using its sense of feeling and hearing , and unable to see, it goes into more suspicion and every movement it feels in the water makes it to release further electric shock worsening its plight. The fish thus goes into a cyclic paranoia and self infliction of pain causing it to be more blind irreversibly. When stranded and in dire need of assistance, its nature of continuous release of electric shocks, prevents helpers from getting to it. You see, such is the situation in some people’s life. They suspect everybody and everything! They are always on a mindset of; – ‘someone is doing me’ – ‘something evil is happening to me’ – ‘someone is planning to harm me’, etc. By having this kind of mental picture or mindset, such people release shock waves that electrocutes whoever comes near them; – Friends who mean well, are branded enemies – Parents are considered evil – Siblings are suspected of hatching evil plots – Work colleagues are branded enemies, etc When people go into such self-destructive mode, all they think about is themselves and not the feelings of others. The desire to protect oneself ends up in hurting others. Copied

Be passionate about your teaching IGNITE YOUR FIRE. BE PASSIONATE. “Teaching anyone without passion is like living without purpose. Both are boring, time wasting and failure bound” – Melissa Chukwuma. We are aware of the fact that some teachers in our schools are not professionals and therefore may find it difficult to cultivate a user-friendly learning environment with current teaching methods for their students. Now, If we accept the fact that as a teacher, you are not professionally trained, must you add to that by coming into class looking dejected, bored, tired, angry, and with the ‘I couldn’t care less attitude’? The classroom learning environment should be one that a student looks forward to every morning. The students are not the cause of your challenges in life! Kindly stop taking it out on them. We have a responsibility to ensure that as teachers we are passionate about what we do! Passion simply lights the fire in you which you transmit to your pupils/students. If you are teaching because you don’t have anything else to do, at least find something you love about your work or the children and develop your passion for what you do through this. Only a passionate teacher can take a child who seems lost through a journey of transforming the child to yield amazing results! Passion cannot be hidden so ignite your fire today. Change your style! Resolve to get better!! Try teaching with passion!!! Melissa Chukwuma Groom Villa Consult.

Acute change in climatic condition Dear all, You would have noticed recently that the heat during the day and night have been unbearably high. This is as a result of heat waves stemming from the emission of greenhouse gases. The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NIMET) has warned Nigerians to prepare for more hot days and warm nights. This preparation will require smart adaptation strategies and engaging in climate resilient practices to cope with the damage that has been done. The common effects of heat waves on humans are dehydration which can lead to fainting or death, chickenpox, heat rash, and psychological stress. In order to cope with the current climate conditions, experts have advised that we Should drink more water to keep hydrated. Keep a water bottle with you to remind you to take water. Avoid alcoholic and caffeinated drinks during this period. Reduce intake of foods that are rich in protein because they increase metabolic heat. Fresh foods, fruits and vegetables are better options. Monitor your blood pressure Should, as much as possible, stay indoors between 12noon and 3pm Should take cold baths before going to bed at night Please endeavor to adhere, we need you hale and hearty! Stay blessed….sent as received

Am a teacher Everyday I am up by 4:00am. Thinking of other people’s children . Off to school to welcome other people’s children.  Off to school to make sure other people’s children are happy.  Off to school to make sure other people’s children are learning.  Off to school to build lives. Off to school to smile even when I don’t feel like, I must, I do because I know lives depend on that smile. Off to school to mark the register, checking on every child to be sure all is well.  Off to school to play the role of a nanny, yes my day is made playing that role well. Yet, the society wants to See Me as poor. They measure me by what I earn, not ready to make it better but just wanted to make me feel small……….. They try to compare me with professions I made because I choose to be who I am A TEACHER. They care less about making me the STAR that I am, suddenly I know better now….. Now I understand no man can make me feel small without my permission. No one has the right to define me, I define myself. I am not who the society calls me, I am who I call myself. I am the Nation BUILDER.  I am the helper of destiny.  I am A Star.  I am a moulder.  I am full of compassion.  I care. I teach. I help. I discover. I unfold. I bring to light. I AM A TEACHER. When next you think about me, see my job beyond what you pay me, look at the NATION I am building. I AM HAPPY TO BE IN THE HUMBLE PROFESSION

2. If you would use one word to describe your school what would that one word be?

3. Looking at your school what 3 major areas makes it different from another school apart from quality academics and curriculum

4. What 3 major changes are you trying to give every child that comes to your school?

5. If there is one problem your school solves for your parents and what would that problem be?
