Travel / Re: Bayelsa The Pride Of The Nation (pictures) by dustydee: 9:04pm On Jul 23
Sloan: Houston, a city in Texas is oil producing as Bayelsa. Now, I will not even compare them in any way but why on earth can't ALL these roads even be marked and well delineated and landscaped? Yes, I know this was the best or one of the best roads you found and took a picture of but I am surprised you do not see this is a disgrace? Yet Bayelsa has a population of less than 2 M but a budget topping almost all the other states when you factor in their oil derivation component? So, in essence from Alamadeighna and Jonadaft and the 2 loonies that came after him, they still could not make one proper marking on that stretch of road? No sidewalk on that very long stretch?
The roads look well paved but the first thing I noticed was the lack of road markings. This is not peculiar to Bayelsa state but we need to take the safety of commuters serious in this country.
Politics / Re: 56 Punch-list Of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (GEJ) Achievements In 3 Years by dustydee: 8:42pm On Jul 23
@OP there are many holes in these "achievements" you have listed. For example:

6. 75% Increase in O'Level credit pass in Math and English
How did the government achieve this or what did they do to achieve this given that most of the secondary schools in Nigeria are either run by state governments or private investor? If your assertions are true, please why is the failure rate in the north still very high? Or is GEJ's policy in the south different from that in the north?

If the little girls from Pakistan did not come and mess him up, he will not hear the word of reason. Over 90 days your Girls are missing, a father of the Nation is hiding in the dark, dancing skelewu in kano and reading children book in the dark.

Kindergarten Presidency!
Father of which nation? Biko, stop that play. He is the president simple. In any case, a father will not act the way he did when this abduction took place.

Politics / Re: DSS Denies Arresting Ezekwesili by dustydee: 4:36pm On Jul 21
She was out at the park yesterday, why didn't the DSS question her then? Why did they wait until she was on her way out of the country before stopping her, collecting her passport and briefly detaining her? What is wrong is wrong. Tomorrow it may be any of us and if we are not as popular as she is, we may end up being detained unnecessarily without any just cause.
In any case, why is the federal government antagonistic towards the #bringbackourgirls campaigners? I bet the protest will seize as soon as those girls are returned to their parents.

These people make me sick a times. angry

Politics / Emerging Nations Plan Their Own World Bank, IMF by dustydee: 10:10pm On Jul 14
WASHINGTON (AP) — Fed up with U.S. dominance of the global financial system, five emerging market powers this week will launch their own versions of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.
Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa —the so-called BRICS countries — are "seeking "alternatives to the existing world order," said Harold Trinkunas, director of the Latin America Initiative at the Brookings Institution.
At a summit Tuesday through Thursday in Brazil, the five countries will unveil a $100 billion fund to fight financial crises, their version of the IMF. They will also launch a World Bank alternative, a new bank that will make loans for infrastructure projects across the developing world.
The five countries will invest equally in the lender, tentatively called the New Development Bank. Other countries may join later.
The BRICS powers are still jousting over the location of the bank's headquarters — Shanghai, Moscow, New Delhi or Johannesburg. The headquarters skirmish is part of a larger struggle to keep China, the world's second-biggest economy, from dominating the new bank the way the United States has dominated the World Bank.
The bloc comprises countries with vastly different economies, foreign policy aims and political systems — from India's raucous democracy to China's one-party state.
Whatever their differences, the BRICS countries have a shared desire for a bigger voice in global economic policy. Each has had painful experiences with Western financial dominance: They've contended with economic sanctions imposed by Western powers. Or they've been forced to make painful budget cuts and meet other strict conditions to qualify for emergency IMF loans.
Now, says Thomas Wright, a fellow at Brookings' Project on International Order and Strategy, "they want a safety net if they fall out with the West."
Developing countries have also been frustrated because the U.S. Congress has refused to approve legislation providing extra money to help the IMF make more loans to countries in trouble. The money is part of a broader reform program that would give China and other developing countries more voting power at the IMF.
Uri Dadush, an economist with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, sees no problem with the BRICS countries' development bank and financial crisis fund. But he worries that the five countries' decision to go outside of existing institutions provides more evidence of the "fracturing of the postwar (economic) system that gave us so much peace and prosperity. The system has not been able to adapt to the new reality, the rise of the new powers."
The IMF and the World Bank seem to be taking the new challengers in stride.
"All initiatives that seek to strengthen the network of multilateral lending institutions and increase the available financing for development and infrastructure are welcome," said IMF spokeswoman Conny Lotze. "What is important is that any new institutions complement the existing ones."
Answering a question about the BRICS development bank earlier this month, World Bank President Jim Kim said: "We welcome any new organizations ... We think that the need for new investments in infrastructure is massive, and we think that we can work very well and cooperatively with any of these new banks once they become a reality."

Wish you the best.

Sports / Sad: Brazil Fan Commits Suicide Because She Was So Devastated By World Cup Agony by dustydee: 3:01pm On Jul 10
A Brazil fan was so devastated by the humiliation of the World Cup hosts by Germany that she took the ultimate step and killed herself.

The victim was a 15-year-old girl in Nepal who was following the fortunes of Brazil from her remote village, located around 250 miles from the capital city Kathmandu.

According to reports, the sporty teenager hanged herself in her bedroom at home, after pals ribbed her about the staggering 1-7 defeat.

Nepalese police officer Sharad Thapa revealed what happened: "She was anxious to see Brazil in the final, but it went down to Germany," he said.

"Some of her friends started teasing her for supporting Brazil. Later in the morning, she took an extreme measure by hanging herself in her own room."

The football world was rocked by the defeat Brazil endured in the semi-final of the competition at Belo Horizonte stadium, this week.

Some fans in Rio de Janeiro took out their anger by burning vehicles in the aftermath of the defeat, while one man was filmed smashing a television set to pieces on the street.

The SSS is now becoming partisan. Where was she when the campaigners warned the public not to donate money to anyone on behalf of the #bringbackourgirls campaign? I remember they warned that fraudsters were soliciting for funds from the unsuspecting public. The SSS and other security agencies failed to make any arrest and weeks later turned around to accuse the organizers of having an account and soliciting for funds. These people make me sick a times. Do your job and stop trying to please some people for personal interests.
