Politics / Re: Why Are Workers Of Government Corporations So Rude? by 1forall: 3:08pm On Sep 13, 2013
anonimi: Do you know any country in this world whose government agencies are "set up to make profit"
A short list will do.
Thanks.

Official statistics show that councils are continuing to forecast to make £635 million profit from parking charges and fines.

That's one to begin with, a simple Google search will help you populate your desired list.

See, not every country in the world runs a rentier economic system like us - some actually THINK of the national future in running their affairs. Surprise! smiley

Politics / Re: Why Are Workers Of Government Corporations So Rude? by 1forall: 1:08pm On Sep 13, 2013
Nig govt agencies are not setup to make profit because they don't stop getting money from the government budget to spend thus they're not motivated to be accountable for anything. And even government's annual budget is prepared without taking the monies generated by these agencies into consideration; no forecasts nor projections, so the govt itself couldn't care less how they're run and consequently, everyone in the chain is more or lesss accountable to themselves.

Add to that list:

The Men Who Built America

The mini series shines a spotlight on the influential builders, dreamers and believers whose feats transformed the United States, a nation decaying from the inside after the Civil War, into the greatest economic and technological superpower the world had ever seen. The Men Who Built America is the story of a nation at the crossroads and of the people who catapulted it to prosperity (from www.imdb.com).

The best way to find out the requirements is to look for such vacancies on airlines' websites and see what they ask for. What you mean by benefits is not quite clear, but if you like very frequent travel and hotel accomodatiion you might consider cabin attendant work as beneficial.

Someone I know calls the role that of a 'waiter/waitress in the air' but it's actually a bit more than that because in addition to delivering customer service, they undergo safety trainings too. However the sky is the limit cheesy in that field, and career progression is not really great. Once you've moved to the senior cabin attendant/purser position, there really are no further options.
Career / Re: Java Or Oracle DBA Or Oracle Developer by 1forall: 8:21am On Sep 11, 2013
^ Thanks for that comment.

DBA is quite different from software development so the OP can help us to be helpful by telling us why he's considering these 3 areas. OP what are your own thoughts?

As technology is very dynamic, and as you can't plan to be static, you would need to be flexible in your approach to skills development. You could learn Java and then find yourself in an environment that requires some Oracle skill so be ready to learn whatever it takes.

Java however would give the broadest foundation and probably is best to start with.

This is rather vague, you would need to provide more detail about this employer or it may get taken off. Contact blocked in the meantime as we await you to fix this. Thanks.

2good: The average Nigerian is backward in reasoning and very much uncivil in the public including the educated ones that is why the whole country is messed up.
