|Jobs/Vacancies / Re: Recruitment Consultant: Ask Your Question... by jephiano: 10:10pm On Apr 27|
Well it depends on the firm. I think its best to find out from someone in the firm that is a 3rd party contract personnel. Some firms almost automatically renew these contracts every year and you see people who spend decades in that level. U could ask someone who works there before u inquire about the potential availabilty of a 2-year contract from HR. Wish u the very best bro.

herquleez: so some people dont know that airbags are deadly for kids abi.
Dude i think the 10:2 position is no longer viewed as the best; i read somewhere that the 9:3 postion is ideal due to the presence of airbags. You should try looking it up.
|Politics / Re: Most Expensive Cities: Lagos, Abuja Among Top 4 In Africa by jephiano: 8:43am On Mar 16|
If Lagos is one of the most expensive cities in Africa then PortHarcourt would be one of the most expensive cities in the world.
Most Lagosians that relocate to PH find the cost of living to be considerably higher than what they were used to in Lag. Abuja peeps also notice the same but console themselves with the fact that they pay less for accomodation.
Yenagoa i think is even more expensive than PH.
Thus this 'research' doesnt really make sense to me.

If i remember correctly its about someone who lost his memory so the title ought to have been 'Who Am I?'

|Sports / Re: Osaze Blasts West Brom Fans by jephiano: 1:46pm On Jan 27|
OP do you by any chance work for The Sun newspaper? You would fit into their team because you equally share a passion for sensational headlines.
Well as Yuzedo said, Osaze talks too much. There are so many players that have been or are in his shoes but they dont go about badmouthing and blaming the fans for their decisions. He should know how to use social media;we already have Joey Barton, we dont need him to join that ignoble bandwagon. Real players respect their fans. What would reallybe silly is if he apologizes about his rantings AGAIN.

Ah Naija! See ur best ever president! Just like Alams is the best ever Governor of Bayelsa! We celebrate incompetence and mediocrity with such aplomb, pomp and panache. Nigeria is like a rich man who throws a party for building a one-room plywood apartment in a slum. SMHWW
|Romance / Re: Guys Will You Take Back Your Gift After A Break-up by jephiano: 12:25pm On Nov 08, 2012|
fyne_Ijay:Are the gifts payments or giving in exchange for s.ex? Is this some kinda prostitution or what? GOD'S WAYS ARE ALWAYS THE BEST.
Well i believe that any gift giving during a relationship should not be returned. Thus i think its best to only give gifts that u could do without irrespective of the direction the relationship takes. (and i dont think an engagement ring is a gift...the mature thing is for the lady to return it irrespective of the cost or beauty or whatever.)
|Politics / Re: What's The State Of The Flooded Areas Now? by jephiano: 6:04pm On Nov 07, 2012|
Its gradually receding in Onelga (Omoku, Ebocha, Ndoni area). The road that leads to Owerri from the area is now motorable...other roads are now passable too. Some have moved back to their homes while some haven't since the water hasn't completely receded.

|Events / Re: Wedding Mistakes ~ What Would You Have Done Differently? by jephiano: 4:52pm On Nov 06, 2012|
Some people have implied planning your wedding yourself is an excercise destined for failure. Well i beg to differ. I planned and executed my wedding plans with the assistance of my wife, family and some wonderful friends and i can say it was definitely a resounding success.
1. My work takes me out of town for two weeks every month but we arranged weekend meetings when i was around.
2. We assigned duties to committed, mature people; we divided the hall into 5, assigned each segment to someone and got people to work under him to share food drinks and souvenirs.
3. My wife and i butchered the list of prospective invitees until we got a manageable number...the turnout was just ok and everyone got to eat.
Alot of other factors came together to make it a success. The compliments we received that period where just too many......i'm the last child so the level of organization seen in my wedding earned me respect from my siblings. I feel we were quite fortunate with somethings and we thank God for his support. Infact i remember telling my best man at the end of the day that i just got another reason to believe God exists. GOOD WEDDINGS DO NOT COME BY CHANCE.
PS. I am enjoying the marriage o....its a massive upgrade on the wedding.....to Jah be all the glory.
|NYSC / Re: A thread for corpers posted to Kebbi by jephiano: 10:21pm On Nov 04, 2012|
Oh Kebbi! Six years after i still cant get over u completely! See me on this thread 'liking' almost everyone's comment. Well i served in Karaye Village Maiyama LGA around 2006/2007. Wasnt easy but we had fun in our own way. The weather should not be too bad now....expect really cold harmattan soon and heat that makes u feel the sun has moved in next door around march, april. We survived so u guys would do too....
If u like freedom to mingle freely, try and go to Zuru......anyways enjoy camp first! Wish u guys the best.
PS: if u r a Jehovah's witness, try and get to Birnin-Kebbi, Zuru or Yelwa......only places u would see K.Halls and have some freedom for preaching....ciao

|Health / Re: A Day In The Life Of Someone Living With Sickle Cell by jephiano: 2:50pm On Oct 29, 2012|
OP: thanks for sharing. People in 'love' (especially the young) often have this gree-die spirit when it comes to relationships, wrongly believing that there is only one person for them or nobody can love them like this person despite their numerous weaknesses or even that they are so compatible with so-and-so person that they are even a perfect match. This clouds their judgement even when they are both AS. I know because it happened to me. I broke up with two ladies due to genotype but the third one wasnt easy. If not for her bad character that later developed i might have been somewhere by now worrying each time she gets pregnant if the child would SS or not. Tufiakwa!
Men i did gentotype tests like 7 times; 2 tests proclaimed me AA while 5 confirmed me AS. This further made it hard to end the relationship. Well we thank Jah it ended and i married a lovely lady thats AA(yes o i had her tested like 3 times in different places!)
Hence some of us evidently need such info so as to know the harsh realities of the condition and know if we would willingly wish to subject our future kids to this.
|Family / Re: Great Things About Your Marriage by jephiano: 6:40am On Oct 29, 2012|
Guy dont allow cynicism to blind you. The guys are not jobless; their 'crime' is wanting to spend more time with their families and helping out with chores. Some men are very good at that and even enjoy it. If the guy that drives to his wife shop everyday started a thread complaining that though his job provides for the family adequately, his wife is pushing him to go and hustle with his spare time, u would most likely come here and bash women (afterall u have already called them Oliver Twist).
Beyond that if money is so good and wonderful, how come the really poor are not commiting suicide in droves but sometimes even the rich do? Being rich should never be equated with being happy, fulfilled and content.
madam Debrief, thanks for ur response on the matter.
bjcole: women & their funny comments, so if a man has not turn to houseboy, u wont luv him, d world is surely upside down, Someone drives 2 his wife shop everyday & stay there throughout D day & he is nt praying 4 it change. I rather be a femi otedola r mike Adenuga with little or no time 4 wify gossips, than a woman rapper.The more time u spend wit a woman in d house, d more insults u receive.Women olivertwists little wonders some f d commentators here r nt still satisfy even after all d so called treat.
|Family / Re: Great Things About Your Marriage by jephiano: 10:36pm On Oct 28, 2012|
I've been married for just a year and three months so i dont really feel 'qualified' to talk about marriage. So far to be honest its been too easy. We just compliment each other so well that quarrels are basically non-existent. We r just so proud of eachother. She is so strong, worked real hard during her pregnancy. Infact her allround strength made me so calm and confident during her labour and delivery. I just knew if God protected her from uncertaintities she would deliver quite easily and she did. She has been my best friend, my confidant, an excellent cook and i pray we grow from strength to strength.

|Career / Re: How Do You Handle Envy From Co-workers Or Colleagues? by jephiano: 10:24am On Oct 26, 2012|
OP you have received alot of advice. I want to believe you are smart enough to analyse, sift and implement the advice u have been given. But i think you should start from yourself. I have former colleagues who call me to complain about the treatment they are receiving from their workmates when in reality their inadequacies is the root of their problem and they wrongly assume its envy. While im not saying thats ur case, it wouldnt hurt to first look inwards. Most people lack the ability to carry out a truly objective self-introspection. I hope that isnt ur case. Wish u the very best.

|Politics / Re: Okah Gave Instructions For October 1, 2010 Bombings - Witness by jephiano: 5:31pm On Oct 05, 2012|
Mustapha, this is basically an over-flogged issue but let me help u understand....these men (especially Hitler and Musolini)cannot be called pescemakers. They are more or less terrorists but they are not religious terrorists. The men u referred to were at best nominal christians. What ever acts they carried out were due to their own personal views or ideals or to further their nationalistic visions. Though some of their actions may have had some religious overtones, THEY NEVER CLAIMED TO ACT BASED ON THEIR RELIGOUS BELIEFS OR CONVICTIONS. But most of the acts of terrorism perpetrated by PROFESSED muslims are said to be done in defence of islam hence the frustrations expressed by people.
mmmustapha: If okah is a muslim, all of U will jump to conclusion n say islam is a religion of violence n muslims r terrorists which I hate to hear. Hitler,mussolini n bush wat r they, terrorists or peace makers No abuse just answer me if u can't dnt even write ur poo

Santi222: I like what you said but I'd like to know, taking materialism away, Who or What exactly is a successful person in the eyes of the Lord God?In simple terms, a successful person in God's eyes is one that learns God's ways and does his utmost to live by them.(Joshua 1:8;Psalms 1:2,3) Naomi, Ruth, Joseph and Mary, etc were materially poor but can be viewed as successes in God' eyes due to their faithfulness and they would not be less in God's eyes than Abraham or other rich servants of God. God knows that money is important but it has limitations.(Ecclesiastes 7:1 and 12)my guy i no like to form pastor for NL! I hope u understand the small explanation sha.
