We hereby announce eight (cool latest updates from JAMB regarding the forthcoming UTME 2017 for all candidates wishing to sit for this years Unified Tertiary Examination Examination for admission into Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges of Education in Nigeria.

While many are gearing up to complete registration for UTME 2017 and prepare academically for the examinations, here are some vital updates they must keep in mind:

1. Registration has not started
It is vital that we begin with this, because many have put up posts that the registration has begun. However, in his latest discussion with the press, the JAMB registrar stated clearly that registration has not commenced , but will commence soon. UTME 2017.

Therefore, ignore any other news to the contrary as we will be breaking the news, when registration commences.

2. 1.7 million candidates are expected
In 2016, the number of candidates that registered for the exam was: 1,561,443, this year about 200,000 more people are expected.

The registrar of JAMB, Prof Ishaq Oloyede himself gave the figure while speaking with students and other bodies . This means that you need to ensure you begin registration as early as possible to get a good centre and avoid been caught in last minute rush.

3. Mock UTME to be conducted
This is also good news for those who are taking the exam for the first time as it will help them have a feel of what it is like, before the pressure of the real thing.

Plans are in place for a mock UTME and this might explain the delay in beginning the sales of the examination forms. So if you are preparing, start your preparations now, so you can do well in both the mock and the real deal.

4. CBT Centres
As the number of expected candidates has increased the board also has plans in the works for more Computer Based Testing (CBT) Centres in order to the make examination exercise far better.

Since there is only one week to satisfy, 1.7 million students, it is totally understandable that more centres will be brought into play.

5. There Will Be CCTV
Another key feature of the 2017 UTME that students need to keep in mind is that cheating and any other form of examination malpractice is really frowned upon.

To ensure this is enforced, the guideline for CBT centres include: The adoption of CCTV cameras for all of them. This means one thing, the exams will be closely monitored.

6. Technology Will Be Deployed
Also, technology will play a big role in this year’s exam. This is the type of hall to expect as a UTME 2017 candidate:

A single hall containing 250 functional desktop or laptop computer systems with extra 25 as backups.

The computers must be minimum 15 inch screens and must be connected to robust computer server with capacity to carry a minimum of 250 systems concurrently.

7. Validity Duration
Another wonderful news for students is that unlike previous years, the result they get from this year’s exam will now be valid for 3 years and not one year as it was previously. The Nigerian Senate passed the extended validity period into law on Thursday, October 13, 2016.

8. Harmony of timetables
Lastly, the organizers of the major examinations, including JAMB met to avoid a clash in schedules and in order to have a harmonized timetable. An agreement was reached at the national headquarters of the Board in Abuja on Tuesday, January 24 , after a meeting with National Examination Council (NECO), West African Examination Council (WAEC) and National Business and Technical Examination (NABTEB) to harmonize the timetable.

Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB May Conduct A Mock Examination Before 2017 UTME – JAMB Registrar. Report reaching us has it that the Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, has disclosed that the body has been working with the possibility of conducting a “mock examination” to test its preparedness with the new technology and also examine some people that are desirous of knowing their competence with the JAMB examination.

He made this known during interaction with newsmen after a meeting with JAMB officials and other stakeholders regarding the new Information Technology being introduced into the system to make it less stressful to candidates.

He added that so far the the board has been working on increasing the capacity of the CBT centres to maximize their effectiveness to examine more candidates within a given date.

He mentioned that an estimated 1.7 million candidates are expected to register and sit for the Computer Based Test (CBT) across the country which is expected to commence soon.

He however stated that he cannot promise hitch free examination because the board is still testing certain things and in the process of changing the status quo.

​Relocation and redeployment of corp members is a thing that is open to any corp member that is willing to take it. NYSC has made it in such a way that if any prospective corp member has genuine reasons why he/she should not serve in the state they have been posted to, such corper has the right to request for a change of state. And that’s exactly what is called “NYSC Redeployment/Relocation”. But mind you, such reasons must be genuine and reasonable.

There are only two ways through which you can apply for Relocation and get approved afterwards.

1. Applying on Camp: One of the major ways, and of course, the initial way of applying for Nysc Relocation and Redeployment is applying for it on camp.

During the 21 days Orientation course on camp, interested corp members will be given the opportunity to apply for Relocation at the 2nd week on camp.

A form will be given out to any interested corper to fill. This form will require, among other things, the corper to state the reason he/she wants a relocation and also give reasonable evidences to back up any excuse given. Together with the form, you will also be asked to submit an application letter.

2. Applying Online After Camp: Before, it’s very difficult or rather impossible to get a Relocation approval after camping is over. But now, it has being made possible and easier to apply for relocating by simply allowing corp members to apply online even after camp is over. Some believes it’s not possible to get approval for relocation until 3 months after camp. But i will tell you, that’s also not true. You can apparently get approved for relocation even after 2 weeks of application. So, how do we go about the online application for Nysc Relocation;

1. Visit the Relocation portal: that is the Nysc official website

2. Sign in with your email and password; same as the ones you earlier used in registering on the portal.

3. Click on “Relocation”

4. Fill in your details appropriately into the fields provided .

And That’s all. You will be afterwards notified through text messages and mails about developments on your application. That’s the same way you will be notified when it’s approved or otherwise. How to Print Nysc Online Relocation and Redeployment Letter

1. Log in to Nysc official website

2. Log in with your email and password

3. Go to “Manage Relocation” and click on it

4. Make a payment of #1000 and wait for it to redirect you after successful payment

5. Print your payment receipt. It’s your evidence of payment in case any unexpected issue arrises latter

6. You will be redirected and now allowed to print your Nysc Relocation letter online

7. Do not forget to make copies of the letter and keep for reference If you still have any thing not clear about this topic, u can use the coment box to notify us so we can help you out with reasonable information on how to go about it.”

How To Become A Nse, Coren Registered Engineer In Nigeria

It is the pride of every Engineering graduate to have the title "Engr." precede their names. It is for this reason that knowbaseconsult interviewed Engr. Ahmed Kazeem on the procedures required for a fresh engineering graduate to become a registered Engineer with the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) and Council for Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN).

NSE and COREN are separate and different bodies so that they cannot be referred to interchangeably. The Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) is a voluntary association established by the practitioners of the profession while the Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) is a statutory organ of Federal Government, established by decree and concerned with certificate of persons for the purpose of practicing the engineering profession in Nigeria.

After 5 years of studying an engineering course in an accredited university, a minimum of 4 years practice is required before you are qualified to apply for professional exams. The NYSC year inclusive of the 4years.

The professional exam is conducted by The Nigerian Society of Engineers. The exam is of three stages

++Technical Report
++Oral Interview and
++Professional Exam.

Technical Report requires you to submit a report on an Engineering project or design which you have supervised or which you were part of. It can also be a sole project executed by you. The submitted technical report will be evaluated by NSE. If they are satisfied with the project, you proceed to the second stage for Oral Interview.

Oral Interview is aimed at testing your technical practical experience and understanding of some other issues that relate with being a member of a professional association.

The Professional exam comprises of different aspects; Essay writing, multi choice question, and others. Before the examination day, NSE organises about 3 workshops for the applicants.

After sitting for and passing the NSE professional exam, you are inducted as a corporate member of NSE, by this you can have the title Engr precede your name, and have MNSE (Member, Nigerian Society of Engineers) after your name. By obtaining the NSE Corporate membership certificate you are qualified to apply to COREN.

If your application with COREN is successful, you will be issued a COREN number and bear the title R.Eng, meaning: Registered Engineer.

Benefit of being a COREN registered Engineer.


To The Public

++Registration protects the public from quacks, charlatans and unworthy persons;
++It provides a strict yardstick against which the engineering professional may be judged on her ability to undertake specific responsibilities;
++It assures that an independent body has examined the registered person and found him/her competent to be registered.

To The Employer

++Registration assures a skill base to cope with new technologies and market changes;
++It shows investors, analysis and customers of good quality of staff;Registration assures customers of professional standards to meet legal requirements
++It demonstrates that the aspirations of new employees can be satisfied.

To The Individual

++Registration provides proof of standard of education, training and experience;
++It provides international recognition
++It increases mobility across wide range of employment
++It keeps the person abreast with latest developments
++It stimulates career development
++Registration creates opportunities for satisfying work

Finally, organisations who provide core engineering services are required to be COREN registered. One of the criteria for a company to be COREN registered some members of it board of directors must be COREN registered. Such directors are entitled to an annual professional fee from the company. This means by being a COREN registered engineer can earn your some "royalties".

The NSE Corporate membership certificate also qualifies you to apply for corporate membership of any Engineering Division (NIMechE, MENA, Civil Division, Electrical Electronics division, mining division, water division, aviation divisional, naval division, e.t.c) without sitting for any other examination. Note that you will have to pay some fee to get certified as a corporate membership of these engineering divisions.

After serving as a member of NSE for a specified number of years, you are qualified to become a FNSE; Fellow Nigerian Society of Engineers, which is the peak of Engineering Titles.

FNSE is not an automatic title, a panel is set up to screen individuals to become Fellow of NSE. From experience becoming a FNSE is not solely determined by the number of years of being a menber, the years of being a practising engineer counts more.

Top 10 Pageants In Abuja With Unpopular Beauty Queens

Beauty Pageant in Abuja has become the biggest sector of Abuja Entertainment Industry, While most Beauty Pageants and Queens gain influence and credibility with Projects and Endorsements some others are nowhere to be found in the Picture.

Beauty Queens think that their skeletal Instagram Followers is their judgement for Fame while they neglect Social Media Publicity, Brand Visibility, Project Awareness and Campaign promotion.
In this 24 Century, TV and Radio is gradually losing some of their viewers to Social Media addicts and Blog loyalists as well as celebrity committed fan followers.

Today, Barcity Media in partnership with One of Abuja Biggest Media Firm, Abuja Press came up with a list of Top 10 Beauty Pageants with unpopular Beauty Queens, some of the reasons why we termed them unpopular is because we don't see them more on the media due to the fact that they got no reputable project that get featured on Media Platforms.

Here is the List...

1 Face of Democracy: This Beauty pageant is One of Abuja's biggest pageant and over the years they have proven to be one of the most vibrant beauty pageant on the Media but their queens end up being unpopular for some reasons.

Queen Esther Zamani was at Headies Awards and Lagos Fashion Awards, she has also been interviewed on HIPTV but we have not seen any of their other queens name anywhere.

We feel their queens remain unpopular due to lack of creative projects and good media engagement.

2 Miss Comely Nigeria: Here comes the bre*st Cancer Fighting Queens, The Beauty Pageant has actually tried in gaining acceptance in Abuja Pageant Industry while their queens still remain unpopular, we actually haven't heard of any projects from the Miss Comely Queens.

3 Miss Independence Beauty Pageant: Miss Independence Beauty Pageant is one of Abuja's emerging Beauty Pageant, they have produced so many beauty queens who still remain unknown and unpopular due to lack of good project and media features, they once produced a beauty queen called Queen Nneze Richard who had the buzz but since then we haven't seen anyone else from this beauty pageant.

4 Miss Falconet: Miss Falconet Beauty Pageant Case is worst because the Pageant is also still struggling to gain acceptance while their Queens Popularity remains tremendously poor.

5 Miss NGO: Miss NGO Beauty Pageant have staged amazing editions of their shows but they still end up crowning Snakes who shouldn't be called Queens at the first place.
The Former Queen, Miss Carmelita made headlines even though only her efforts wasn't fully recognised by the Media.
The current Face of Nigeria World Tourism, Queen Ijeoma okafor was the immediate past head queen of Miss NGO, little was heard about her when she was Miss NGO.

Their Queens remains one of Abuja most unpopular Beauty Queens in Abuja Pageant Industry. 

6- Finest Girl Nigeria: Here comes one of the oldest and biggest beauty pageant in Abuja but the fact still remains that the Queens still remain irrelevant even though the Pageant Organizer claims his online TV has 5million reach but that don't still promote the Queens, we have also seen their events been over hyped with words like "5 Governor's, 3 Ministers, 10 Senators" but we end up not seeing even an SA to a Local Government Chairman when we attend, we also know of one of their queens called Queen Aisha who is only seen in Parties and Nightclubs.

7- Face of Culture: The Previous Edition this Distinguished Pageant crowned Queens that helped in pushing the brand but the latest Queens are nothing to be written home about, the event also ended up in a ridiculous way after crowning of Queens that were disqualified from other pageants, we haven't seen or heard of Anything from their Queens either.

8- Face of Fashion Africa: Face of Fashion Africa was very controversial that even during the event, almost all the seats were empty, the girls were looking horrible and we haven't seen them before anywhere near a project or media since when they left Face of Fashion Africa Stage.

9- Queen of Unity: This Pageant shouldn't have been featured if they had more queens like Queen Simi Silas, Their other Queens have never been seen on the Media and even on during events which is the cheapest form of Publicity..

10: Miss UN Habitat: Last year, this pageant had one of the biggest controversy, from UN Alleged attack to Jaywon controversy and finally to their Queen controversy of travelling home with the official car which haven't been fully paid for.
Since the Crowning of the Queens, they have been sent to exile because we haven't seen them anywhere near the media or a project.
The organizer also made an appearance at Mrs Accolade event which was one of
first appearance months after his event.

Money Mistakes To Never Make When Planning Your Wedding
Planning a wedding is not a child’s play whether you engage a wedding planner or not. It is very challenging and demanding because it requires thorough planning and of course money. The funds you have will go a long way in determining your type of wedding. But since Nigerians love weddings and it is once in a lifetime, they go all out and they don’t mind breaking the bank. Regardless, if you are not careful, you will make some monumental money mistakes when planning your wedding. Not to worry, Jumia Travel, the online booking agency identifies some of these mistakes.

Talk about the budget

There is no gainsaying that you must have a budget when planning your wedding. However, you must ensure that you discuss the budget with your bride or groom. This will ensure that both of you are on the same page when the spending eventually starts.

You don’t put a price to whatever you are shopping for

The prices of groceries and other items have significantly increased. Therefore, it is smart if you put a price to nearly everything to make your shopping easier. You can get the prices of whatever you want to buy online by going window shopping.

Sticking to your budget

Sticking to your budget when planning your wedding is not advisable because emergency expenses will always come up. You should make arrangement for these extra expenses so that you will not be caught in a web.

Not making arrangements on how to recoup money

This may be funny but you should do it anyway. You should make arrangements for how to recoup some of your wedding expenses. You should employ a live band and make sure there is time for couple’s dancing on the list of things to do. This way you will get some money to settle certain expenses.

Borrowing to finance your wedding

You should never borrow money to finance your wedding because you will have to pay back after tying the knot. You may end up paying for debts in the first few months of your wedding which doesn’t leave a good taste in the mouth.

Nnamdi Ezeigbo – CEO Of SLOT, Infinix And Tecno
Nnamdi Ezeigbo is the founder and CEO of SLOT systems limited, and also the brain behind TECNO and INFINIX, the fastest selling phone brands in Nigeria. Many people are not even aware that these popular phone brands are the brainchild of a fellow Nigerian. His success story is a very remarkable one.
Nnamdi Ezeigbo studied Electrical Electronics Engineering at the Yaba College of Technology in 1988, and got a Higher National Diploma (HND), before serving his country, Nigeria, during his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) year at Guinness Nigeria PLC, in 1996.

After completing his youth service year, Nnamdi Ezeigbo tried to no avail to secure a job with a company in Nigeria. With no promising signs of any potential employment, he went on to work as an apprentice learning how to repair computers. After which he launched out on his own to repair computers for individuals. Since he didn’t have any cash at the time, he had to squat with a friend of his at Ikeja, who owned a book store. His customer base grew, largely because of his honesty and the premium he placed on customer service.

The mutual trust and good relationship with his customers, was what gave him his first break in business. One day, an old customer he knew from his days as an apprentice, came to his little shop to see him. He told him he would love him to continue fixing his computers, but would prefer he operated from a larger and more serene environment. To help him out, the customer brought some printers for Nnamdi to sell, from which he used the proceeds to setup a new shop for himself. He paid for the store at a then price of 180,000 Naira (He later bought that same store many years later for 100 million Naira).

From his new store, he began to sell computers. As his business grew, a lot of customers started to both demand for Slot stores in areas close to their vicinities, and to ask if they sold mobile phones. With a keen eye to spot opportunity when it presents itself, Nnamdi Ezeigbo immediately expanded his business to also cover the sale of mobile phones.With no real knowledge on how to manage a growing business, Nnamdi decided to enrol for an MBA program at the prestigious Lagos Business School. He also began to attend many workshops on entrepreneurship, which helped to sharpen his business acumen and develop his legendary entrepreneurial prowess.

During this process, he and his team decided to take a 5 year route to build a strong reputation for their brand. By the time the projection had elapsed, the Slot brand name was the most reputable mobile phone retailer in the whole country.
The rise of telecommunication networks created many opportunities in the Nigerian market. Their poor services caused many Nigerians to purchase more than one mobile phone, so they could try a different network when the other was bad. Nnamdi realised this problem early on, and approached Nokia in a bid to convince them to manufacture dual sim phones for Nigerians, so they would carry only one mobile phone at a time instead of two. They refused to listen because, seeing people carry more of their phones meant more phone sales for them.

According to his interview with Nairametrics, Nnamdi said;
“So I went to China and got a guy who had worked with a company called Bird then. Bird was into phones but they got choked and lost market share. I met with the guy and asked the guy to let us do something. I came with that name and I registered it here and brought the guy to Nigeria. And that was the high point of our business. We came together and I designed the first Tecno phone, Tecno T101. We started it but the market did not accept it and we also had problem with the dual SIM not working together and we had to make corrections and we came with Tecno 201 and that was a bit accepted by the market. But we were basically giving marketers on credit to sell the phones and then pay us later. And I was funding it all alone. Since I was funding it alone, we were finding it difficult to get the right quantity to sell until the market started accepting us. What I now did was to make them pay in advance, I mean the dealers. So we started using their money to order the products. This was around 2007. The introduction of Tecno brand was the turning point of our business. Like I said, Tecno is my baby and we kept improving. I knew a day would come when the middle class would accept Tecno. Initially, it was a phone for low income people but based on improvement and upping our game, the middle class had to accept it and when the economy went down in 2008 that helped Tecno to move to the top. Since purchasing power had dropped, they had to go for something that have same capabilities but cheaper. So with N15,000, you could buy a Smartphone and thank God for 3G network. The advent of 3G network actually helped Tecno to move up. So students who could not afford to buy phones in the range of N30,000 could buy one for N15,000 and enjoy features of Smartphone like Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp and so on.”

Today, Nnamdi Ezeigbo is a phenomenal success story in Nigeria and indeed Africa. From a humble repair man, he has built a multi-million dollar company and one of the most recognizable brand in Nigeria.
There are many lessons in this story.

Pay attention to your business no matter how small it is today, it can be the seed of a global company tomorrow.
Integrity in business is extremely important, it will open doors for you, and speak for you, even when you are not present.
When you see opportunities, grab it and run with it.
Keep improving your products and services every day. Nnamdi kept improving Tecno steadily until it became an accepted brand in Nigeria.
Most importantly, the greatest investment you will make is an investment in yourself. As a business man, if you can afford a business school, enroll.
Don’t waste your time crying over the economy of the nation, there is nothing you can do about it, but there is a lot you can do about your own personal economy.
Improve yourself and your personal economy will improve. At least, let us all start from somewhere.

There are some situations where you find yourself using the phone of a friend, colleague or your significant other. For some people, this may be very uncomfortable because they don’t like someone else going through their phones.

This is because they store personal information that is not meant for the eyes of just any random individual. And definitely, there are individuals who have the knack for checking other people’s phone. What are they looking for? This said, if you find somebody phones in your hands, heroslodge shares 5 things you should never do.

1. Do not pick the phone without permission
In some love relationships where trust is absent, the tendency of checking phone without express permission is very high. They check received calls, pick calls and read private messages which are not supposed to be the case. This actions rather than remove the cheating suspicion usually intensify it. Beyond relationships, it is awkward to pick someone else’s phone or calls without their permission.

2. Don’t guess the password
If you do not know the password, don’t bother to guess the password. This is because if you enter the wrong password, the phone will be locked temporarily. Due to your actions, the owner of the phone has to spend money to unlock. Why not just ask them for the password?

3. Don’t use their data
Your friend briefly hands you his phones and the next thing you is to freely use their data to download files and check your emails. You completely forgot that it is not your phone. So, don’t use someone else’s phone data or WiFi without their consent.

4. Don’t go through their photos
There are all sorts of things that people save on their phones including private photos, videos, and documents. So, if someone hands you their phones, it is not an opportunity to go through their pictures because you may see images that are not meant for your eyes. If you do this, you may end up jeopardising your relationship with the owner of the phone.

5. Don’t sign out their social media account
You should not sign out the social media accounts of your friend in a bid to sign in yours. Your friend may not remember their passwords because you do not expect them to sign out from their social media accounts or emails when it is their phone.

1. Installing malware

One of the biggest misconceptions about
smartphones is that you don’t have to worry about
security with them nearly as much as you do with
your computer. But that’s a myth, and downloading
apps at random without doing your research is a
great way to end up with malware on your device.

Malware ends up on your phone via an app, so it’s in your best interest to avoid downloading apps from third-party stores or clicking download links on suspicious websites, even if they show the icon and name of an app you think you can trust.

Downloading an infected app is a great way to damage or even permanently ruin your phone, so your best bet is to only download apps from trusted sources, always be vigilant about what you’re downloading, and be careful about which apps you’re granting permissions, especially if you’ve rooted or jailbroken your phone.

2. Leaving your phone plugged in

Leaving your smartphone plugged in and charging all night isn’t great for the longevity of the device. It may not really be a problem to leave your phone plugged in for a couple of hours once it’s charged completely, since devices can limit the power being transferred to the battery once that battery is fully charged.

But there’s no benefit to continuing to charge your phone after the battery reaches 100%, and leaving the device plugged in for long periods of time can
generate excess heat and damage your phone.

Another great way to damage your phone as you
charge it? Leaving the device plugged in when it’s
tucked under your pillow or even just sitting on top
of your mattress. A smartphone heats up as it’s
charging, and if you don’t place it somewhere where
that heat can dissipate, it can overheat.

3. Allowing your phone to overheat

Speaking of overheating, your phone doesn’t have to
be plugged in for the device to get too hot. Whether
you’re reading the news on the beach or playing a
game at your neighbor’s barbecue, it’s relatively easy for your phone to overheat in strong sunlight. Even leaving your phone on the table while you jump in the lake can be enough to make your phone
overheat, and in some cases, a phone can get hot
enough to shut down when left in direct sunlight,
even in an air-conditioned room.

The problem there is that excessive heat can damage the battery. That’s never a good thing, particularly because most people want longer battery life out of their smartphones, not shorter times between charges.

Typically, a phone that overheats will shut itself off to prevent damage. But repeatedly pushing your phone to that point will likely do more harm than good, so shielding your phone from the sun, turning it off if you have to leave it in a hot car, and otherwise keeping your device at a comfortable temperature is a good idea to prevent accidental damage.

4. Keeping your phone on 24/7

Just like you turn your computer off when you aren’t
using it, it’s a good idea to shut your phone down at
least occasionally to give it a rest. Leaving your phone on all the time burns through the life expectancy of its components more quickly than you would by shutting it off every once in a while.

Regularly shutting down your device, or even simply rebooting it, will help ensure that caches are cleared and that everything is running smoothly. Think of it as a well-deserved power nap for what may be the hardest-working device you use on a daily basis.

4 Ways To Abandon A Life Of Sin
​Trying to abandon a sinful lifestyle is not easy.

It requires a lot of hard work, determination, and persevering, even in the midst of temptations.

With all of the above, it comes as no surprise that a lot of people fall back to their old ways, and let go of their goal.

Today, we shed some light on how to finally let go of the darkness and step into the light.

Here are four ways to abandon a life of sin and embrace a Godly lifestyle.

1. Figure out the why, what the goal is and hold on to it: Trying to change or letting of habits is never easy. However, you can achieve your goal by understanding why you need a change. Once this is done, you need to determine the goal, which is finding God and living a life, your creator can be proud of. This will be your anchor.

2. Abandon your old lifestyle completely: Just like the new believers at Ephesus, who brought out all their books on witchcraft and pornography and burned them in public, you also have to let go of your old ways. This is both mental and physical. Physically, you might have to throw out some clothes, movies, books, and so. Mentally, you need to slowly change your thoughts, behaviour, and the words that come out of your mouth.

3. Build up your spirituality by reading the Bible: Step 2 says free your mind of the bad, this step says fill up that empty space with the word of God. This way, you are not left empty, or open to negativity. "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God" (Matthew 4:4 KJV).

4. Pray constantly: "Stay alert; be in prayer so you don’t wander into temptation" (Matthew 26:41 MSG). The only way to avoid going back to your ways is to pray constantly. Praying reminds us of our vulnerability to sin, and the desperate need to hold on to God, the author and finisher of our faith.

Top 15 Small Businesses Any Student Can Do Right Now
There are many productive things you can do with your free time when you’re not doing school work. These are some of them.

Sometimes, doing business in school doesn’t just earn you extra cash, it also instills a sense of responsibility in you. So no matter your motive, where it is to earn extra cash and fend for yourself, or it is for sport, or it is just your own training for post-school life, here are a few businesses you can start with little capital and scale up on:

1. Hairdressing:
If your hair making skills are tight, and you can convince 5 friends to tell everyone to come make hair with you, you’re in business.

2. Graphics Design:
This is probably one of the most sought after freelance job at the moment. Whether it is a simple poster, to designing for a big project, it’s possible to juggle it on the side.

3. Programming:
Everyone is building something. Many small Internet companies are always looking for developers to help them build everything from a website to software.

4. Writing and Research:
If you know how to dig, research and get the work done, then there’ll always be someone willing to pay you to help them with their project work or essay, or research paper. Your win.

5. MC’ing:
This is AY. He started off MC’ing in Delta State University, his school.

If you’re funny enough, can speak in front of a crowd, and genuinely believe you’re not as boring as your Vice Chancellor, with some practice, you can earn money MC’ing at events. People do it for a living.

6. Event Planning:
Makeup: Start with your friends, the people they know will see it, and if you’re really good at it, someone will be willing to pay.

7. Artist:
How are your painting, or doodling, or drawing skills? There’s a growing movement of young, middle class people who are beginning to appreciate art more. You might want to find them, and make them pay for your art.

8. Modelling:
Linda Ikeji, for example, started out modelling at the University of Lagos.

Ah. You know the drill. Start with small gigs. Small gigs will eventually lead to big ones.

9. Social Media management:
Small businesses are always looking for people to help them manage their social media presence, so if you seem to have Social Media in your palms, you can also find a way to get that money in your palms too. No course in school can teach you this.

10. Promoter:
Are you popular, resourceful, and convincing? People will be willing to pay you money to bring students in your school to an event.

11. Voice over:
You know that famous “Gulder The Ultimate” voice in the ad or the “We know it’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it” in that Fidelity bank ad? That’s Femi Sowoolu, and he makes a good living doing voice overs, amongst other things of course.

Besides your boyfriend or girlfriend of course, do people generally think you have a great voice with even greater diction? If you do, then you might want to research people on how to be a narrator and voice-over person.

12. Barbing:
Dude, if you can barb, and your friends aren’t willing to pay you to barb their heads, are they really your friends?

13. Baking:
Mama taught you how to bake. You better learn how to make money with it. Like, someone is celebrating something every week in school. You can be the person they come to for all your cake problems.

14. Photography:
Bayo Omoboriowo is the President’s personal photographer. He started off while he was in University. When do you intend to start?

15. Tailoring:
Everyone needs dresses for the next Owambe, they need a tailor, you have the skills. What are you waiting for?

Remember, there’s nothing shameful about trying to make money legally. If your friends laugh at you, then maybe you need new friends. There’s no dishonour in making money, as long as it’s legal.

5 Things You Need To Stop Doing In 2017
We are products of habits. We make our habits and our habits in turn make us. You can tell the future of a person by taking a look at the person’s habits. It's like an indicator with a 99.9% accuracy rate. This is why it is important that you must constantly do a self-evaluation. We are already in the year 2017. Here are five things you should stop doing this year.

1. Stop sleeping for long:

Sleep is necessary for the proper functioning of the human body. It gives the body an opportunity to rest and regain its vigor. Science says that the average human being needs to sleep for about eight hours a day. But anybody who is really serious about becoming rich cannot afford to sleep for long hours at a stretch. A large number of the world's influencers sleep for a short time each day. Reduce the amount of time you sleep. Spend the time working on your goals. Read a book. Invent in something. Your best thoughts will come in the night when others are sleeping

2. Stop having an entitlement mentality:

This is one of the greatest enemies to success. There are people who have erected a mindset of expectancy from others. They believe that someone owes them a favor and it is that person’s responsibility to do it. If that expectation is not met, they tend to become bitter. Such people will not go far. Why? Because they place the power of their future in another person’s hand. Quit expecting anything from anyone! Stop accusing people around you. Stop blaming the government. Realize that you're the CEO of your life and that you're 100% responsible for your life.

3. Stop playing it safe:

Too many people are too careful about life. They are slow to make decisions or take any action because of the fear of making the wrong decision. What they fail to understand is that indecision is also a decision to do nothing. This is the mindset that paralyzes them and keeps them from taking risks. Life favors the bold. Like someone said,"in life, your biggest regret will not be from what you did but what you did not do". So, brace up. Try something new. Master your fear. Take new calculated risks.

4. Stop depending on your job alone:

If there is anything 2016 thought us about jobs, it is that having a job is not a very reliable option. This is evident by the massive retrenchment that happened last year. Nobody anticipated it. Don't misunderstand me, having a job is good. But it is advisable that you should have an alternative source of income. Search for new opportunities. The internet is home to many opportunities that won't take your time and efforts. Set up one for yourself. Insure yourself from any form of unsavory future occurrence.

5. Stop ignoring opportunities:

Someone once said that to be poor means Passing Over Opportunities Repeatedly. This is very true. Every human on earth has an opportunity to achieve their goals. Some people’s opportunities are more glaring than others. But nobody has been deprived by fate of that opportunity. The problem is that many people never recognized the opportunities that came their way because it did not come as they expect. Others just ignored it. Choose to explore new grounds.

Even in the best of relationships, feelings change. It’s just a normal part of love. It is so normal that psychologists have noticed a near-universal pattern in the way lovers’ attitudes towards one another change.

There are basically FIVE distinct stages of love which every relationship and marriage pass through. Though most relationships and marriages end in stage 3, couples that can pass through this 3rd stage will sure enjoy that dream happy-ever-after kind of relationship.

Stage 1: Falling In Love Or Romance Stage:

During this stage, partners project their hopes and dreams of spending their life with one another. Each believes the other is their perfect soulmate who will provide them with pleasure and companionship for the rest of their lives. Partners who just came out from previous relationships will be wondering where on earth he/she was all these years. It feel so special!

Phone calls, text/whatsapp/bbm messages, dates, hangouts etc are regular. Couples are never tired of each other. Flaws are ignored at all times.

This is the "perfect love" that is projected in movies, novels and fantasies of our minds.

At this stage, hormones like oxytocin, dopamine and serotonin go wild, adding to the feelings of love.

Call it infatuation, you are not wrong.

Stage 2: Becoming Partners:
In this stage the infatuation characteristics is a bit reduced, little flaws are spotted but couples brush them aside.

While some enter into marriage, some others, especially younger couples formally engage their partners or do some pre-engagement. Married partners build their lives together, have kids, build house(s), buy lands or project a future. For the unmarried partners, they talk about marriage, fantasise about life together and work to strengthen each other.

In fact, couples become one, there is high sense of appreciation for each other and a strong sense of security. They wish it will last forever...But here comes the next ..

Stage 3: Disillusionment Or Power Struggle:

For most relationship and marriages, this is the beginning of the end.

Everything just seem to go wrong. Partners feel more insecure and unhappy with each other. The infatuation of stage 1 and illusion of stage 2 have both worn off. Partners begin to feel they made terrible mistake entering relationship with their other half. Partners fight and quarrel a lot over particular and most times tribal issues. To a partner one is not understanding, while to the other assume/conclude that his/her partner is disloyal.

Comparisons and statements pops up. Statements like, "I thought s/he was different, how foolish was I" "Tonye my ex wasn't as problematic as this" "Modupe was even better when we were together" "s/he isn't worth it" "I've had enough and I am quitting" "Ibrahim is even cuter and richer, I think I gotta dump this guy before he dumps me" "Chiamaka is even more beautiful and mannered than her" "wetin carry me join this short broke man" "no be say she even fine like that sef".

This is a very delicate stage. This is the stage where some people cheat, some open up to accommodate friends of opposite gender to "get what they lack" in their partners. Some married people separates, while some divorce. Engagements and commitments of other yet-to-be married couples are broken.

Some couples breakup and makeup, breakup again, then makeup and continue the circle till they either move past the stage or break it completely.

For some others, they give each other space without breaking up, work on themselves, and decide whether to move past the stage or break it up to start afresh with the next guy or lady.

Basically, couples either breakup or survive in this stage. This stage is a "necessary evil" in all relationships and marriages.

To get past this stage, couples/partners will learn to try not to force or control the other into being who they thought they were, but instead accommodate the flaws and make healthy moves to influence their partners to be who they want them to be while working on themselves too to be that partner their spouse dreams about. Partners must appreciate each other, realising who they are and what they have(not materialism please).

I must admit that this is easier said than done, but we just can't help it else our ex counts will be uncountable before we reach 60.

The irony of this stage is that partners that give it up enters into another relationship and goes through the same process over again.

I must warn/advice that people have to be careful not to engage in infidelity or a fall back relationship if they desire better deal as that will mess up the whole thing leaving them with guilt and inward shame/regret especially when the partner finds out(which he/she will definitely do).

Stage 4: Real Love/Commitment
For those that survived stage 3, they begin to enjoy real love. The married couple feel so comfortable with each other. They help each other heal wounds of stage 3, they realise how much they are in love with each other, become so bonded and will even lose an arm for the sake of their partners. For the married, the man will always protect his wife, the woman protects her home and family against "invaders". They become each others bestfriend. This is the stage the unmarried are so convinced that they usually tie the knot with their sweethearts. At this stage, only death can come inbetween.

But partners must be careful as once in a while, stage 3 might raise its ugly head but the good news is that the bond of love and friendship between them will conquer any challenge or reincarnation of stage 3 as they have now got a common ground to handle disputes. This stage is also called Real Love stage.

Stage 5: Combining Forces To Change The World:

Some couples get stuck in stage 4 (which is fine) but some others move further. They combine the power of two to do one thing together. It could range from being counsellors, engaging in community service, promoting a cause like Bill and Melinda Gate, book writing, politics like the Jonathans and the Obamas, entertainment like Olu Jacob and Joke Silva etc.

Their love is admired by all and their works affect the community. They improve each other as individuals and couples. Wow!

Everybody and every couple can achieve this ultimate stage of love as seen in stages 4 and 5. We have the responsibility of prioritising the kind of man or woman we want to end up with by factoring traits such as characters, habits, orientation, norms, faith etc of the would-be partners.

I have to state that no matter how you may try, a serial cheat, sexmaniac, chronic liar, physical abusers, selfish and greedy individual, heavy drunk etc will NEVER give that ideal love to you, at best you will be stuck in stage 3 till you either accept your fate and live miserably ever after and "take it to the Lord in prayer" or you get worn out and move on with the hurt, except you are comfortable with such traits and habits.

May God Bless Us All And Grant Our Desires

Chloe Bridgewater wrote Google about her interest in working at the firm

She wanted to work at the firm after seeing the bean-bag chairs and go-karts

CEO Sundar Pichai said that he looks 'forward to receiving' her job application

Some kids want to be astronauts, firefighters or chefs when they grow up – but one little girl has her sights set on one of the biggest tech companies in the world.

Chloe Bridgewater, age 7, sent Google a handwritten letter noting her computer skills and expressing interest in working at a place that provides bean-bag chairs and go-karts for their employees.

The 'Google boss', CEO Sundar Pichai, replied telling Chloe that he looks 'forward to receiving' her job application and encouraged the young girl to follow her dreams.

Chloe, who lives in Hereford, was inspired to write the letter after seeing images of Google offices filled with comfy bean-bags, go-karts and slides.

And the original letter was shared with Matt Weinberger of Business Insider by Chloe's father Andy Bridgewater.

In Chloe's letter, she tells Pichai, who she deems 'Google boss', that she enjoys using computers and plays a game on her tablet where she 'moves a robot up and down'.

She also explained that her dad said if she continues being a good student and get goo grades she will one day have a job at Google – Chloe also noted that she wants to work in a chocolate factory and be an Olympic swimmer.

The Bridgewater's received a response from Pichai earlier this month encouraging the little girl to keep working hard and follow her dreams.

'I'm glad that you like computers and robots, and hope that you continue to learn about technology,' the Google CEO wrote.

'I think if you keep working hard and following your dreams, you can accomplish everything you set your mind to – from working at Google to swimming in the Olympics.

'I look forward to receiving your job application when you are finished with school'.

Andy shared the letter on his LinkedIn stating his daughter was 'knocked down' by a car a few years back and the letter had a great impact on her.

'She lost a great deal of confidence after being knocked down by a car a couple of years ago,' he shared in a LinkedIn post.

'However, to say she is delighted after receiving this letter signed by Sundar Pichai himself is an understatement.'

'She is now even more eager to do well at school and work for Google.'

'Can't thank such a busy person enough to take time out to make a little girl's dream become one step closer, although not sure she's fully aware that it'll take more than riding go karts and sleeping in pods to make it with Google!'

There are principles that were handed to us by people from the previous generation. These were things they applied repeatedly in their time which worked for them. The problem now is that a lot of those principles have become obsolete and have no place in today’s world. The world has gone way past them.

It can be a very frustrating experience for anyone who keeps trying to apply these principles without recognizing that the rules of the game has changed. It is like trying to beat a dead horse. Some people get so caught up in tradition (the way it has always been done) that they frown at anything new. You will hear them say, “This is how it has always been done” or “this is how I am”. The real question here is: “what if the “YOU” is not working?” “What if HOW it has always been done is not giving you the desired results?”
This is why it is pertinent to re-evaluate what we have believed and make necessary adjustments. Here are five popular principles you should consider for re-evaluation.

1. Good Grades Guarantees Good Jobs:

This statement which was the gospel truth in the eighties and nineties is now a suicidal advice in our time. It was true because very few people were educated during that period, making the educated ones an elite class of some sort. Juxtapose that with our time and you will see how things have changed. You think you are the only one with a certificate now? I’m sorry, but there are hundreds thousands of people with better certificates yet, without jobs. Wake up! This point does not criticize academic success. No, it emphasizes the fact that you need more than good grades to get the life you desire for yourself.

2. Living By the Rules Is Compulsory:

In school, we were all taught to live by rules. Some of the rules were good because they checked against our excesses. But the rest of the rules were horrible. Why? Because they tried to force everybody into thinking and approaching things the same way. Even teachers taught us to solve questions using only their methods. Sometimes, rules can be suffocating. It can kill creativity and destroy ingenuity. This is why so many people now live life within the confines of societal standards. They have things they should do or not do. The real question should be, “is it legal?” If it is, then you need to really think again. Forget the rules and go for any opportunity that comes your way. Thomas Edison, while working on an invention, was told by his assistants about the rules they needed to follow. Thomas replied him, "Damn the rules. We are trying to invent something here."

3. A Job is the Target:

Have you ever heard someone say, “I’m hunting for a job?” It is a popular expression amidst job seekers. I have nothing against looking for a job. The problem is when graduates think that a job is the ultimate. This has made many become prolonged job seekers. Many have lost precious months (and some years) of their lives waiting for a job that never arrived. Since all they see in their mind is a job, they have missed countless opportunities that have crossed their paths. Their desire for quick money has made them lose valuable chances life throws at them .Their hunger for a job has blinded their eyes to the opportunities around them begging to be exploited. Don’t let that be you. If a job is not forthcoming, look around and find an avenue that you can channel your creative abilities into.

4. A Job Means Financial Freedom:

There are people who believe that sitting in an office is a sign that they have financial freedom. I call it the “white-collar job deception”. Nothing can be farther from the truth. You are not financially free because you have a job. Don’t be deceived by the false sense of job security either. It is a mirage, like a pot of gold. The only way to financial freedom is to create a venture of your own. Have a stream of income that is not dependent on your boss or a management board. Create a business of your own that will boost your finance. In that way, even if something goes wrong with your job, you will still be buoyant.

5. You need huge capital to start a business:

Nothing could be farther from the truth. If you believe that you need big money to make money, it is most likely true that you cannot make money. The basic necessity for a business is not money but ideas. Capital will always flow to anybody that has a good business idea and relentlessly acting upon the idea regardless of the obstacles obstructing him. in most cases, if the idea is valid and logical, it will require little capital to start it. Anyone who wants to immediately open a business in a big way most likely will not be able to cope with its growth and magnitude. If you have a business idea, start small. And then nurture it like a baby till it grows. Don't waste your time looking for huge capital.


with the rate of unemployment and underemployment in Nigeria, Nigerians need alternative income generating sources online. this is because, most legitimate online jobs never get saturated and requires a little or no capital. the form of online job that Nigerians have just started becoming aware that it is highly lucrative is affiliate marketing. affiliate marketing is the online business that i personally recommend to any Nigerian that wants to build a passive income source online.
