Art, Graphics & Video / Re: Hyper Realistic Pencil Portrait Drawing Of Late Nelson Mandela By Oscar Chuks by BBDelta(m): 9:43pm On Apr 12
Oscarrazzi: I just finished drawing this pencil portrait of Nelson Mandela today, so I decided to share it here on Nairaland to encourage amateur artiste who wish to step up their game to something more hyper realistic as this. I also have portraits of 2face Idibia and Tonto Dike amongst other pencil works I have made. This is something new am trying, so I really need your encouragements as well. Thanks

As soon as you mentioned Tonto dike, I knew you are a nairalander, nice work ops.... all the best.

See Nigerians and negative comments. I think something bad happened and they didn't keep it away from him. I had a friend who lost a cousin coming for his wedding in an accident. He cried during the reception when he finally heard.

Business / Re: Dangote Formally Launches 42.5 Cement Grade With SON Approval by BBDelta(m): 7:43am On Mar 27
naijacutee: I respect Dangote, and his entrepreneurial flair but this is low. This is a plot to kick his competitors out of the market. Let me explain briefly:

1. Let's note that the different cement grades indicate functionality, not quality. 42.5 grade cement is not better than 32.5 grade cement, the same way that 12-inch Remy Brazilian hair is not better than 8-inch Remy Brazilian hair. It all depends on the style of weave you want to have, and with cement, it depends on the kind of structure you want to build. 32.5 cement is multi-purpose for block making, plastering, etc. and 42.5 & 52.5 are used for high rise structures.

Industry experts advice that there are instances (such as in the North) where using anything above 32.5 grade cement could lead to disaster to your home, due to the heat. To read up on this, see an interview with an industry expert who spent 24 years in the cement industry: http://businessdayonline.com/2014/03/all-cement-grades-have-specific-applications/#.UzLafP07jwI

2. A press release was carried out in February asking for the standardisation of cement in Nigeria. This press release was chaired by a certain 'Tunde Ojo' who was the spokesman for 'coalition of civil society groups and professional bodies in the construction industry', a mysterious group that appeared out of thin air (and has also vanished out of thin air). The coalition is untraceable in this modern day of the internet and I have tried to search for this mans name in relation to cement in any work/job/publication/press release before February 2014. Nothing. One can only conclude that this coalition was created for this purpose, but I stand to be corrected. If anyone knows this 'Tunde Ojo' or this coalition, please feel free to educate us. See the release: http://www.vanguardngr.com/2014/02/coalition-raises-alarm-artificial-scarcity-cement/

3. One week after this press release was carried by all Nigerian newspapers, (some papers just copied & pasted without editing - which makes me wonder who ordered them to carry the story, and for how much?) a Dangote spokesperson came out to petition the SON to take 'substandard cement' off the market "so that the incidence of building collapse can be tackled and the use of poor building materials can be stemmed". First of all, 32.5 cement is not a "poor building material' in the same way that 8-inch Brazilian weave is not a poor hair product. This happened in India also when cement companies were de-regulated and there was much competition in the market. Some marketers tried to convince buyers that 52.5 grade cement was higher quality than others in order to sell their product, therefore this is not a new marketing tactic. See the number of housing estates built using 32.5 cement in Russia: http://eurocement.ru/cntnt/eng10/plants2/russia1/savinsky_c1/savinsky_c2.html?forprint=1
In South Africa: http://www.finnbuilder.co.za/technical.htm
In-depth guide (UK) on cement production & grades : http://www.cemex.co.uk/Userfiles/datasheets/mortar-cementitious.pdf

4. One blogger predicted that even though normal review processes should take 36 months, by some miracle this one might be compressed to weeks or even days. See his write up here: http://aguntasolo.com/2014/03/18/the-konkere-wars-part-ii-starring-alhaji-as-v-v-putin/

5. We're almost there, all the strings have been put in place: http://www.codewit.com/business/17525-nigeria-fg-sets-to-eliminate-32-5-grade-of-cement

6. How does this affect the price of garri you may ask. Well, while Dangote says the price will remain the same (which we perceive to be a good thing), what happens if the next step in the game is to increase the price of cement after eliminating all the competitors? So Dangote decides that cement will be sold at N5,000 a bag due to "high manufacturing costs", no competitor can sell at N4,500 because they have already been eliminated! So everyone is forced to pay the exorbitant Dangote costs and thus people don't have enough money left over to buy garri because we all donated it towards making Dangote the richest man on the planet!

P.S I like Dangote, and this is a completely unbiased view.


Madam all this could have been summarised to say, the upstair my grandfathr built in 1945 is still standing strong. On a serious note I enjoy you analysis, it boils down to the fact that the nigerian platform has given him that space for such unethical market strategy that does not conform to world best practices. One thing is sure no matter the price of cement , we will still build taller, stronger and better buildings than dangote and all of them all.

Jobs/Vacancies / Re: The Biggest Mistakes 20-something Job Seekers Make - Forbes by BBDelta(m): 1:00pm On Aug 05, 2013
howardriddle:



The Biggest Mistakes 20-Something Job Seekers Make

Young job seekers need to get over their sense of entitlement.

There was the young job seeker who showed up at his interview 15 minutes late, failed to apologize, and thenasked if the interviewer had a garbage can so he couldthrow away his gum. There was also the 20-somethingapplicant whose call to the hiring manager went dead in the middle of the conversation. The young woman didn’t call back for two hours, only to explain, without apology, that she had dropped her phone in a tub of water while she was getting a manicure. Then there was the mother who called her son’s boss when he wasn’t hired at the end of his internship, and demanded to know why.

Dani Ticktin Koplik, 58, an executive and performance coach in Englewood, N.J. has lots of stories like these. For the last several years, half of Koplik’s coaching practice has been made up of so-called Generation Y, or Millennial, job seekers. This group, age 20-32, makes a series of job-searching mistakes that stem from their sense of entitlement, lack of deference to authority and over-involvement by their parents. Kopliksays in her own practice, parents frequently call and email, and try to micro-manage the coaching process. To run interference, Koplik schedules a monthly meeting with parents, mostly to tell them to stop meddling. She also coaches them to give their kids a consistent message. Too many parents tell their offspring that they have to earn a living, and then let them live at home indefinitely rent-free. Koplik recommends timetables and limits.

I asked Koplik for a list of mistakes her 20-something clients make, and she had plenty of ideas. Here is her list of the top ten.



1. Acting entitled
One of the consequences of over-involved parents is that young people feel as though they deserve an easyride. Koplik tells of an intern who, on the first day, informed his supervisor that he had to leave early that Thursday for a horseback riding lesson. “It didn’t dawnon this person that he was being totally inappropriate and sabotaging his career,” says Koplik.


2. Starting the process too late
Ideally, college students should start looking for meaningful internships for the summer after their freshman year. Students who assume that they will geta job without too much effort, wait too long to begin the process.


3. Under-utilizing the alumni network
Though parents and their friends can provide good contacts, the network of professionals that comes through a college or university should be one of the first places a young job seeker turns.



4. Using a résumé that’s sloppy and too self-centered
Young job seekers are often weak on résumé basics, like clear, tidy layout, careful proofreading for grammar and punctuation, and use of keywords from the job description. Another big problem: the “objective” section tends to be too much about what they want, and not enough about the potential employer. For example, young applicants often say, “entry level position where I can use my skills, ideas and enthusiasm and I can learn a lot.” Instead, the emphasis should be on what they can contribute to theemployer. Applicants should also leave off menial jobs like camp counselor, unless they can quantify their achievements, like saying they organized waterfront activities for a group of 150 campers.



5. Writing cover letters that repeat the résumé
Many young applicants regurgitate their résumé accomplishments in their cover letters. Instead, cover letters should be short and vivid, and say something particular about what the applicant can bring to the job.


6. Doing poor research
Young job seekers often just glance at a company website before an interview. Instead they should read everything on the site, search for news clippings aboutthe company, and track social media information, like Twitter feeds, on company managers.



7. Failing to clean up their social media profile
All of those drunken, bikini-clad pictures on Facebookshould be removed, or locked down with privacy settings. Everyone, including college students, needs apolished LinkedInprofile.


8. Not showing enough appreciation for the interviewer
Young applicants often fail to conclude an interview with an expression of gratitude for the interviewer’s time. Always thank the interviewer in person, make it clear you would consider it a privilege to work at the company and ask about the next step in the process. Then follow up with a handwritten thank-you note or email that references specifics discussed in the interview.



9. Failing to show generational deference
Koplik tells of the summer intern who, at the end of his time on the job, marched into the office of the chief diversity officer at a big company and said, “Could I give you some feedback on my internship?” Young people are so used to being included in conversations, they fail to grasp their position in the pecking order.


10. Relying too heavily on listings and job fairs
I write this in every article about job search mistakes, because it’s a chronic problem. Koplik says that young job seekers are just as guilty of spending too much time applying to online listings, and through anonymous job fairs, as their more senior peers. We say this over and over: People find jobs through people they know, rather than through advertisements.If you see a listing for a job, try to find a personal connection to the employer and use that as your entry point.

Nairaland / General / Re: Why Are Some Nigerians Crazy About Title? by BBDelta(m): 10:31am On Jul 31, 2013
Feraz: Good evening all! Recently, I went to a function and while they were calling out the names of the guests, I noticed a common trend which was attaching a title before the person's name. It reminded me of when I was in my school's lab and a guest came looking for someone. He told the lab. attendant that he was looking for Mr..... and the lab attendant replied harshly, "Is it Mr.....or Engr.....?" The guest was like "oh, sorry! I mean Engr...." before he replied that he was the one. In my mind, I was like WTF??!!!! undecided When I say title, I don't mean Mr./Miss/Mrs; I mean titles like Pastor Mr., Sir Engr., Bishop Evangelist (is it that both don't preach the word of God?), Dr. Engr., Prof Chief abi na Chief Prof.? Even our supposed lecturers are not left out of this? Try addressing a Dr. or Prof. as Mr. (even if it is a mistake) and watch his reaction....Some have as many as four titles.....does title mean achievement for some?.....Is it only in Nigeria or am I the only one who has noticed this?

Religion / Re: Does Christianity Support Underage Marriage? by BBDelta(m): 12:47pm On Jul 21, 2013
Krasid: Is it right for an Underaged person to get married in the church?.What does Christianity say about underage marriage?

Stop bringing Religion to everything you do in life. Use your common sense and ask yourself and others who you wish to agree with on this. Can a Girl child of 7 - 17yrs be a wife? Would she face any kind of health, psychological issues? Would she be mentally stable? Would she have gotten enough training to bring up another child? Why would you want to marry a girl of that age?

To get into your religious unending debate.... I would ask you how old was Mary mother of Jesus when she conceived Jesus Christ and when she became Joseph's wife? From whatever source you check, she was damn under 18yrs and IMPORTANT question to make your Religious position on this usse irrelevant would be, does that means Christainity support under 18yrs marriage?

I heard, Presidency FC signed two new strikers (Paul Erokoro SAN and Tayo Oyetibo SAN) yesterday to play no. 9 (same role) without each knowing of the other.

At the Abuja High Court training field both of them embarrassed themselves, but the Football Governing body had to adjourn the training session and sent both players home to put their houses in order. Though the two new signings of Pro-Ameachi Utd ( Femi Falana SAN and Yemi Osibaja SAN) both strikers who came for training at the same field had a filled day.

Let the debate continue…………… before the match proper.
Politics / NIGERIA 2015 Championship......presidency FC Vs Pro-ameachi Utd, Today 8pm LT by BBDelta(m): 8:35am On Jun 26, 2013
As preparations continues against the Presidential 2015 Championship, there shall be a crucial warm up match today in Abuja between the Presidency FC and Pro-Ameachi United by 8pm Local Time today.

It will be recall that Pro-Ameachi United trashed Presidency FC 19 - 16 in an earlier friendly encounter last month, though Presidency FC blamed it on poor officiating despite the use of high modern technological gadgets’ to reduced irregularities.

Presidency FC has since their earlier defeat reshuffled their coaching crew and as such Pro-Ameachi United must understand that they are facing a different Presidency FC side.

Happy Watching! Stay tuned for live updates as the different teams and supporters moves to the stadium, it’s not clear at the time of reporting who the referee of the match would be but evidences of adequate security is on ground to forestall any kind of break down of law and order.

Politics / Re: Adeboye Doesn't Comment On National Issues To Avoid Influencing People by BBDelta(m): 5:50pm On Jun 01, 2013
I.Joan:
General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has explained that he is careful in making public comments to avoid mistakes.

In an interview with Haaretz newspaper during a visit to Jerusalem, Adeboye said he had shied away from speaking out on national issues in order to avoid influencing people in the wrong way.

He also said he was aware of the enormous responsibility on his shoulders as the leader of a global church with millions of members.

“At times it’s frightening. In Africa you have a saying, the man who is carrying a basket of eggs must walk gently … whatever mistakes you make, you affect destinies,” he said.

Adeboye stated that his transformation from a Mathematics lecturer at the University of Lagos to a pastor was a divine call, noting that he has a mandate to preach peace everywhere he goes.

“I’ve always said turning a mathematician into a pastor takes only God. In my work with God, I’ve learned that he has a sense of humour,” he stated.

The pastor, who has led the RCCG for three decades, arrived for a meeting at the Dan Jerusalem Hotel, surrounded by an entourage of eight loyal aides, who treated him with the awe normally reserved for heads of state, the paper said.

Speaking on the growing global influence of African preachers, he said the seeds sowed by missionaries who brought Christianity to Africa were producing fruit.

“When you reap, after a certain period you begin to sow. Today, in many parts of the Western world, people have gone rather cold toward the church. Fortunately, the seed sowed in Africa has germinated and the harvest is now coming back to them. So, they are merely reaping what they sowed.

Art, Graphics & Video / Re: Learning Printing Process From Scratch To Finishing - by BBDelta(m): 12:48pm On May 14, 2013
pinehazel: Printing Production Process and Analysis:
My name is Mosiu Adelabu Kazeem I will be your host on this platform all through, teaching you everything you need to know, and also to become a printing agent in less than a month. In this, article you will be taught step-by-step how to start any kind of printing project from start to finishing. Projects like Calendar production, invitation card, jotter, shopping bag, handbill, posters, business cards, letterhead, etc.
I will not only teach you how to do all these, but also show you the secrets to costing any form of projects no matter what quantity it is. All for free!
Flier Production Process:
Flier is also known to be handbill. It is usually recognized by a particular size called as in printing term. This size may either be vertical or horizontal depending on the choice adopted by the graphic designer who created it as stipulated in the brief by the owner of the project.
If you want to dabble into production of filers; certain number of factor must be considered, starting with design source. Who is that person or company to handle the art work.
This is a very important aspect that must be handled with care; because whatever is designed will be used in the remaining stages of the production process.
What do I mean?
In any form of printing, art work plays a major role which can make or mar any project.
I will advise you to pay much more attention to where, who and why your design or artwork has to be trusted in to the custody of a particular person or agent.
Your artwork must be handled by an expert in that field; who has made every necessary bad and good judgment in that profession with years of experience is qualified to handle such delicate and sensitive stage of production. I will be there for you, should you have anything to involving graphic design/artwork. Contact me for honest and professional advice.


Requirement For Hand Bill Production .
a. Artwork d. Paper
b. Digital film e. Impression
c. Plate making f. Finishing
Obviously, we have spent some valuable time discussing artwork, but doesn’t mean we still don’t have relevant things to mention. This time around I only want to make a salient point on your design presentation and setting. Designs are meant for various purposes; church program flier design is expected to wear a different look from that of entertainment industry. Make sure that you are not carried away with the beauty of any design. Be certain that it suits the category it is meant for, before proceeding to filming stage

Digital Filming: This is the stage when designed artwork is being transformed into film by a machine called Digital Separation Machine. This machine is programmed in such a way that all colours present in any artwork design is separated into one, two, three or four process colours that will eventually enable plate making. Note this: before an artwork gets to late making stage you must consider the number of colours involved in the designed artwork.
An artwork could be single colour, 2colours, 3colours or 4colours termed cyan, magenta, yellow and black. These colors formed the basis on which price is fixed on printing machine. The process whereby film is exposed on to the surface of a plate sheet is called lithography.

Impression Running: Here is the stage where images that are exposed on the plates is being transferred to the surface of paper material. This process could be better understood if you can take a visit in form of excursion to a nearby printing press around you. This is just for you to physically comprehend what I am teaching you in theory. But if you are going to have challenge with that; I can organize one for you in my printing press. Depending on the quantity needed, a printing machine could print as many as possible quantity of project at hand. Lest I forget, quantity is usually measured in number of papers (print run) to be used.

Paper: This is a crucial stage in printing where choices are made in what kind/type and quality as well as quantity of paper material needed to execute a printing project.
There are different types of paper available for printing predominantly we have papers and card. In the paper category; present are art-paper, mart-paper, bond-paper, conqueror etc. While in the card category, we have art-card, mart-card, alabaster-card, vanguard-card, chip board etc. The choice of kind of paper or card to be used depends largely on the nature of the project before you.

Printing Run /Quantity: This is the most important part of this article, and I will advise you pay utmost attention to every single point mentioned.
For an aspiring printing contract agent; understanding the quantity and cost implication in any project will be a pointer to your success in this industry. Let’s take for instance, you have an order to produce 20,000 copies of 6”x 9” handbill; the pertinent question should be “how much am I going to charge per copy? And how do I go about determination the cost involved?.

Don’t worry; you are not alone …..
To start with, I will want to make a check list of what is required to produce such quantity of handbill as well as the cost attached to each.
Check list;
a. Art work d. Paper
b. Film Making e. Impression
c. Plate making (Lithograghy) f. finishing
Before any cost could be determined, you must firstly consider the type of printing machine you want to use for printing-run, which is going to be the yard- stick for the cost of each item on your checklist.
There are different types of printing machines available, but at this stage of learning, I will want to restrict you to the most commonly used.

Types of printing machines:
1. Speed master (SM) 4 - 5 colours at a time
2. Sord - 2colour at a time
3. Kord - 1color at a time
4. Gestetner-1colour a time

to be continued in the next 48hours .... Thank You and God bless ....Mosiu Adelabu Kazeem

Politics / Re: Picture From CPC Convention In Abuja by BBDelta(m): 5:45pm On May 11, 2013
Sincere 9gerian: What an irony. When it comes to political rallies for selfish political ambitions Buhari and other leaders of the north will pull CROWD. But when it comes to solving national problems, like rein in on Boko Haram insurgents to stop the mayhem, leaders in the north become POWERLESS. Why cant northern leaders organise anti-Boko haram rallies in the north? Why cant APC governors of Borno and Yobe, alongside Buhari (as leader of APC in the north) organise anti-Boko haram rallies in affected states? Is it that they dont consider the Boko haram menace big enough to warrant such intervention? Wont it be to the credit of APC if thru such mobilizations the current mayhem in those states stops?

Rather than participate in finding solutions to the problem, APC and Buhari are trying to ride on the back of the blood shed in those states to Aso Rock.

Anyway, since the political and religuous leaders in the north have decided to be lukewarm on this issue of Boko haram and if eventually the ongoing dialogue efforts fail, the govt will be left with no other option but to continue and INTENSIFY the military campaigns in affected states. One thing is certain, those who hope to climb to Aso Rock through the blood shed in the north will be FATALLY disappointed


Wait oh....... I could really speak simple and correct English Language, Seun you would have to excuse me on this, I need to express my mind to this fellow in pidgin.

O Boy dem send you come? Make Buhari/Govs use which money take organise rally? na who wan pay them for the time and resources? may monkey dey work and baboon dey aso rock dey chop abi? why GEJ/PDP Govs for north no organize the rally, abi the above 25% votes them get no reach? plus our taxes and oil money wen dem they thief, no reach.....?

Romance / Re: "7 Signs You Are In A Relationship With A Single Guy" by BBDelta(m): 4:06pm On May 11, 2013
Emylexray: The topic or caption is clear. "7 signs to know that you are in a relationship with a "single" guy". The word single in that context connotes "a player".

Why was I confused? I noticed I was not alone though..... ok explaination gotten...

Next time spoke, oh sorry sparke!, oh I mean speak in the context we all understand. Never knew single could actually be used for player...... am learning fast.....
