By Loveline Priceless 

Four hundred and three soldiers, who have completed a six-month training in new skills have formally bowed out of the service. The soldiers numbering 281 from the Nigerian Army, 17 from the Nigerian Navy and 105 from the Nigerian Air Force were sent off. It was held at the Nigerian Armed Forces Resettlement Centre, NAFRC, in Oshodi Lagos.

The ceremony was attended by the Minister of Defence, Brig.-Gen. Mohammed Dan-Ali (rtd) who urged them to continue to contribute their quota towards surmounting threats to lives and property within their domiciled area.

“You are all aware of the security challenges confronting our country, particularly insurgency in the north east, cattle rustling, kidnappings, pipeline vandalism and other criminal activities across the country.
“Be notified them that as retired personnel of the Armed Forces of Nigeria, much is still expected of you in contributing your quota towards overcoming any threat to lives within your area of domicile.
“This will go a long way to abridge these vices in order to improve safety and security which is important for meaningful socio-economic development as well as peaceful co-habitation and existence,” he said.

He said the federal government was committed to ensuring that service personnel were properly resettled after dedicated service to the country.

Forget Biafra, Nwodo tells IPOB

President General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief John Nnia Nwodo, has restated his earlier position that it will be injurious to the Igbo to pursue self-determination and urged members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to drop their agitation and join the organisation’s quest for a restructured Nigeria. 
  He spoke during a Town Hall meeting organised by the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation in Lagos, yesterday.
Nwodo, who  noted that the youths were free to express themselves over what he described as the relegation of the Igbo to second class citizens in Nigeria, stressed that the South East would be the ultimate loser in the event of another civil war. 
“Whether we agree with them or not,  they have a right to express their opinions. When I was at their age, I was in the trench fighting for Biafra. I’m not sure that anyone of them has heard the sound of a gun.  I lost a close friend who was with me in the trench; a mortar caught him in the ear and he died instantly.
The Ndigbo leader disclosed that more than half a million Igbo died in the war through the gun and bombings by the federal troop while another one million died out of hunger and starvation.
‘‘The Igbo suffered enormous loss to the war.  I am telling this story because I, Nnia Nwodo,  will be a saboteur if the Igbo choose to go for another civil war. Anybody at my age who does not speak the truth is not doing himself any good. Ohanaeze does not support war; we support restructuring, which will allow the federating units in Nigeria to take charge of their affairs.”he told the gathering.  Members of IPOB had come to the event displaying placards with various inscriptions like “Biafra is the solution,” “Ohanaeze stop deceiving us,” “No federal presence in the South East, only python dance,” “Where is Nnamdi Kanu,” and “Ohanaeze Ndigbo stop the killings in Biafra land,” among others. 
  Nwodo emphatically told the agitators to stop nursing the dream of an independent state of Biafra, saying, “when you want to fight a war,  you must ask yourself how do I fight this war’’.
‘‘Our young men must learn; we know better than them and they must learn to listen to us.  In order to get a pride of place for every Nigerian, we must ask ourselves how do we do it.  If we go back to the trenches to fight,  we are doing disservice to this nation;  we are doing disservice to our children.” 

ADULT VIDEO SITE VISITORS AT HIGH RISK OF DEADLY VIRUS

wp-image--1453104387

It has been reported that pornhub has been hit by hack which means that internet users who visit pornhub could have contracted a malicious virus. This secret virus runs like an advert on a free pornography site and has been running for over a year. It works by secretly entering people’s computer and having their system taken over, without the knowledge of the user. This problem has been running quietly for over a year though effort has been made to shut it down as soon as it was discovered but it is now obvious that the shutdown was not of a success. This malware could spread its damages across the internet.

The virus advert will pose itself as if it is updating a browser or an operating system, once clicked on will install itself automatically. As the virus contaminates a system, it incurs debt by clicking automatically on fake ads on behalf of the user, it could get worse by taking from the users data (increasing mobile data consumption) and using the mobile user’s access to commit fraud on the internet. It can also steal information. This hack could come from other sites but porn site visitors are more vulnerable as so many adults visit the sites and will be less likely to report such attacks as not to expose their little secret.

EARTHQUAKE: Claiming over 200 lives in Mexico

 

Over 200 people have been killed following a 7.1 magnitude earthquake which struck Mexico yesterday 19th of September 2017.

More than 200 people are dead after a magnitude-7.1 earthquake rocked central Mexico Tuesday afternoon, hitting on the 32nd anniversary of the biggest quake to ever strike the country’s capital.

The earthquake struck about 75 miles southeast of Mexico City but caused extensive damage there, leveling at least 44 buildings, including homes, schools and office buildings, according to Mexican, President Enrique Pena Nieto who did a flyover of the city Tuesday afternoon.

Among the dead are at least 22 people, including students and at least two adults, from a collapsed primary school in the south of the city. Pena Nieto visited the school late Tuesday. He said the 22 bodies have been recovered but that 30 children and eight adults are still missing.

Earthquake occur mostly along techonomic plate boundaries especially on the pacific ring of fire. It is the shaking of the surface of the earth, resulting from the sudden release of energy in the earth’s lithosphere that creates seismic waves. Earthquake can range in magnitude from those that are so weak that they cannot be felt to these violent enough to toss people around and destroy whole cities. If the epicenter of a large earthquake is located offshore, the seabed may be displaced sufficiently to cause a tsunami. Earthquakes can also trigger landslides and occasionally volcanic activity.

Earthquake is considered one of the natural disasters which is usually experienced in different parts of the world but not common in Africa. Earthquake could come by shaking and ground rupture, landslides and avalanches, fires, soil liquefaction, tsunami, floods, human impacts.

Major earthquake occurrences has been recorded in history in places like Asia, South America, Australia/Oceania, North America, Europe and Antarctica. The most devastating earthquake ever recorded was 1556 Shaanxi earthquake which claimed over 830,000 lives. The deadliest of the 20th century was Tangshan earthquake in 1976 which claimed between 240,000 to 655,000 lives. The earthquake with the largest magnitude of 9.5 happened 22 May 1960 Chilean earthquake.

earthquake 2

This year 2017 over 80 cases of earthquakes has been recorded across the world from January till date in places like Fiji islands, India, Philippines, Italy, Colombia, Alaska, Mexico and some others.

This is a natural disaster and cannot be avoided but can be manages and prepared for by future forecasting, evacuation and lots other measures.

At this point I join the global community to sympathize with Mexicans, this is the second time of such disaster occurring in Mexico within this month of September the previous claimed over 90 lives and barely some days after there is another strike, it is really a great tragedy.

 

Kids from wealthy family in position to hold jobs unlike their counter part


(AP) — Teenagers from higher-income families are more likely to hold jobs than those from lower-income households, according to University of New Hampshire research that suggests employment itself has become an extracurricular activity.

The university’s Carsey School of Public Policy examined the latest numbers from the National Survey of Children’s Health, which collects data on about 95,600k children ages 17 years and younger every four to five years. For the report released Tuesday, data was analyzed on about 35,000 children ages 12 to 18.

According to the survey, higher-income youths are twice as likely to be employed as their lower-income peers, a finding that researcher Sarah Leonard said was perhaps surprising since one might expect lower-income youth to have higher employment rates. She said that could suggest that after-school jobs have become a form of extracurricular activity.
“This possibility could explain why rural youth are more likely to work — if fewer traditional extracurricular opportunities are available in rural areas, employment may serve as a replacement,” she said.
Higher-income youth are one-and-a-half times as likely to participate in extracurricular activities, defined as school-based or extramural activities that aren’t required by schools or eligible for school credit, including sports, clubs and other structured activity. The reasons for the disparities are unclear, Leonard said, but it’s possible that financial costs, eligibility for and availability of activities could be factors. For example, many schools require students to maintain minimum grade point averages to participate in extracurricular activities.
“If low-income youth have lower academic achievement, as some research shows, their opportunity to participate in school-based extracurricular activities will be diminished,” Leonard wrote. “In turn, since extracurricular participation is linked to better grades, decreased participation could also lead to poorer academic achievement.”
She suggests policy makers and school systems consider changing their eligibility requirements for school-based activities and making participation in such activities more affordable and accessible. She said colleges and universities should also reconsider admissions policies that are heavily influenced by extracurricular involvement.
