JEITO: why are you angry because he said he was going to crush BH? Was it Lagos state that restricted entries into Nigeria after patrick sawyer? Or was it lagos state that set up ebola testing and isolation centres in all the geo-political regions of this country? And ensured those who were infected were adequately quarantined and those that escape to other states brought back? Or was it lagos state that did mass sensitization of Nigerians on ebola
Jeito, I like ur comment... But do u know what politics is? They acted on the success of Lagos State. We have federal police in Lagos but Lagos provide them with ammunitions n automobiles. The ones detected elsewhere were sent to Lagos. Didn't u see him on TV cleaning his hands with sanitizer as if Ebola na germ? Let's reason from every angle... To me, he is using the chibok girls for politics... The guy's advicers too dey watch Scandals + House of Cards

|Family / 9 Terrible Habits You Need To Stop Immediately by ledafaze(m): 4:24pm On Sep 22|
9 Terrible Habits You Need to Stop Immediately
Don’t overwhelm yourself, Ferriss says. Just tackle one or two at a time, eliminating counterproductive habits step by step, and eventually you’ll reclaim impressive amounts of time and energy.
Do Not Answer Calls from Unrecognized Numbers
Ferriss gives a couple of rationales for this one. First, the interruption will throw your concentration, costing you far more in time and brain power than just the conversation itself, and second, if it’s important, you’ll find yourself in a poor negotiating position, scrambling to formulate your thoughts when the caller is already well prepared. Instead, use Google Voice to check your messages or a service like PhoneTag to have them sent to you as email.
I still received one useless call from Glo today since they've started using well constructed numbers.
Do Not Email First Thing in the Morning or Last Thing at Night
“The former scrambles your priorities and all your plans for the day and the latter just gives you insomnia,” says Ferriss, who insists “email can wait until 10am” or after you check off at least one substantive to-do list item.
Do Not Agree to Meetings or Calls With No Clear Agenda or End Time
“If the desired outcome is defined clearly… and there’s an agenda listing topics–questions to cover–no meeting or call should last more than 30 minutes,” claims Ferriss, so “request them in advance so you can ‘best prepare and make good use of our time together.'”
Do Not Let People Ramble
Sounds harsh, but it’s necessary, Ferriss believes. “Small talk takes up big time,” he says, so when people start to tell you about their weekends, cut them off politely with something like “I’m in the middle of something, but what’s up?”
But be aware, not everyone agrees with this one (and certainly not in every situation), and you may want to pay particularly close attention to norms around chit chat when traveling internationally.
Do Not Check Email Constantly
Batch it and check it only periodically at set times (Ferriss goes for twice a day). Your inbox is analogous to a cocaine pellet dispenser, says Ferriss. Don’t be an addict. Tools like strategic use of the auto responder and Boomerang can help.
Do Not Over-Communicate With Low Profit, High Maintenance Customers
“Do an 80-20 analysis of your customer base in two ways,” Ferriss advises. “Which 20% are producing 80% or more of my profit, and which 20% are consuming 80% or more of my time? Then put the loudest and least productive on auto-pilot, citing a change of company policy.”
What should those “new policies” look like? Ferriss suggests emailing problem clients with things like guidance on the number of permissible calls and expected response times. If that sounds like it might annoy your loudmouth customers, his response is, essentially, who cares? Point them to other providers if they don’t like the new rules. “Sometimes you really have to fire your customers.”
Do Not Work More to Fix Being Too Busy
The cure for being overwhelmed isn’t working more, it’s sitting down and prioritizing your tasks, Ferriss believes. So don’t make the mistake of working frantically if you’re swamped. Instead, sit down and decide what actually needs doing urgently. If that means apologizing for a slightly late return call or paying a small late fee, so be it, as long as you manage to get the important things done.
“If you don’t have time, the truth is you don’t have priorities, so think harder, don’t work harder,” he says.
Do Not Carry a Digital Leash 24/7
At least one day a week leave you smartphone somewhere where you can’t get easy access to it. If you’re gasping, you’re probably the type of person that most needs to do kick this particular habit.
Do Not Expect Work to Fill a Void That Non-Work Relationships and Activities Should
“Work is not all of life,” says Ferriss. This seems obvious, but the sad truth is that while nearly everyone would agree to this in principle, it’s easy to let things slide to a point where your actions and your stated values don’t match up. Defend the time you have scheduled for loved ones and cool activities with the same ferocity you apply to getting to an important meeting for your business.

|Computers / For The First Time, Hackers Have Used A Refrigerator To Attack Businesses by ledafaze(m): 3:17pm On Sep 19|
For the first time, hackers have used a refrigerator to attack businesses
Smart Fridge designed by Ashley Legg
Security researchers at Proofpoint have uncovered the very first wide-scale hack that involved television sets and at least one refrigerator.
Yes, a fridge.
This is being hailed as the first home appliance "botnet" and the first cyberattack from the Internet of Things.
A botnet is a series of computers that seem to be ordinary computers functioning in people's homes and businesses, but are really secretly controlled by hackers. The Internet of Things is a new term in the tech industry that refers to a concept where every device in your house gets its own computer chip, software, and connection to the Internet: your fridge, thermostat, smart water meter, door locks, etc.
To a hacker, they all become computers that can be hacked and controlled.
In this case, hackers broke into more than 100,000 everyday consumer gadgets, such as home-networking routers, connected multi-media centers, televisions, and at least one refrigerator, Proofpoint says. They then used those objects to send more than 750,000 malicious emails to enterprises and individuals worldwide.
In the press release, Proofpoint explains:
The hack happened between December 23, 2013 and January 6, 2014, and featured waves of malicious email, typically sent in bursts of 100,000, three times per day, targeting enterprises and individuals worldwide.
About three-quarters of the emails were sent by regular computers, but the rest, slightly more than one-quarter, were sent by hacked home appliances.
Hackers didn't have to be amazingly smart when breaking into home appliances. Many times they gained access because the home owners didn't set them up correctly, or used the default password that came with the device.
Most homes are not yet a part of the Internet of Things, and looks like hackers will already be there to greet them when they arrive.
|Religion / Re: When An Atheist Denies God, What Exactly Is Being Denied? by ledafaze(m): 1:07pm On Sep 18|
qstar: Atheism isn't "denial" per se, atheism is a disbelief in god(s).
Disbelief simply means denial of existence...
I do not belief there is something named God can simply be put I deny his existence cos I dont believe he exists.
so literally, they are same.
|Religion / When An Atheist Denies God, What Exactly Is Being Denied? by ledafaze(m): 1:45pm On Sep 17|
Is it necessary for an atheist to define God before God can be denied? Can an atheist deny God without having some exposure to the concept of God?
|Family / Re: Can You Allow Your Son To Get Married To Your Adopted Daughter. by ledafaze(m): 12:23pm On Sep 17|
O so sini lenu, o tun b'uyo si...
Iso re, ko se'n pon la
Iyo re, ko se'n tu danu...
Well, it depends on the ideology and belief that was used in bringing then up (or let me say of the parties involved).
When the child was adopted, was she adopted on the ground that she becomes part of their family of a foster daughter... If adopted as a foster daughter, they can go ahead. But is adopted as part of their own family, it then becomes a big hard nut.

15 Things Every Man Should Know By The Age Of 30
1. How to cook a signature dish
No, "a mean beans on toast" does not count. You're 30 now, man – you need to have at least one dish in your arsenal with which to impress your friends.
Top tip: perfect the Sunday roast as its praise-to-difficulty ratio is stacked in your favour – people are disproportionately impressed by an ability to cut up potatoes and shove them in the oven.
2. Never try to replicate fun
We've all done it. You've been on an amazing holiday, or to an amazing party. Everything about it was perfect: the people, the location, the timing. So why not try to replicate it? You know, plan everything meticulously so it's exactly like it was before? Sadly, it's never the same – you always lose that wonderful frisson of unpredictability. By 30, you know just to cherish the memories.
3. It doesn't really matter what people think of you
Four words: you can't please everyone. Don't like the person I am, the person I've spent years cultivating? Bugger off, then. Goodbye forever.
4. Talking about university is boring
Ah uni, those were the days! Remember when you downed three pints of snakebite back-to-back and everyone cheered? Remember when you turned up to a seminar having not been to bed, eyes wide like saucers? Enough already. Yes you had a fun at uni but, seriously, it was EIGHT YEARS AGO! Time to move on.
5. It's easiest just to tell a girl you like her
God, it was tough. You'd go through it in your head over and over again: how do you tell someone that you like them? And what if she rejects you? That horrible humiliation; that crushing self-doubt. Yeah, all that has gone by 30. Like a girl? Just tell her. Life is short.
6. Know when to call it a night
It's 4am. You've just heard Everywhere by Fleetwood Mac for the second time tonight. The smell of desperation is beginning to pervade the room. Then someone says: "We need to get more booze." "Great idea!" comes the response. Except it's not; it never is.
7. How to choose a good wine
You don't need to be able to witter on portentously about the grape's integrity but you should by now be able to remain unflustered and pick a tasty wine when faced with a snooty waiter and a menu longer than War and Peace.
8. Fancy dress isn't all about offending others
The party invitation says "fancy-dress". What do you do? You probably want something fancy, funny and maybe a bit provocative. Fine. Then some guy thinks he's being edgy rocking up in a bin Laden outfit. "Look how shocking I am," he thinks to himself. Thirty-year-olds look at him and think: what an attention-seeking prat.
9. How to change a flat tyre
You're 30 now; it's time you acquired some practical skills. See also: putting up bookshelves and performing basic home repairs. (Confession: I am yet to change a flat tyre.)
10. Friends getting engaged is a happy occasion
I know, I know: you should always be happy when your mates get engaged. But come on: when you were 25, your first thought was, "well, there goes our friendship." Am I right or am I right? Now, though, you're the first to "Like" their Facebook announcement and marvel at the beauty of their love. Maybe.
11. Have a signature aftershave
Aftershave is one of those things you can never really buy for yourself. It's a birthday present from your mum or a Christmas gift from your godmother. Maybe you'll get some for Valentine's Day. Make it easier for everyone, then: stick to one scent.
12. Glamp it up at festivals
Sharing a small tent for five days with nothing but baby wipes to cleanse you may have been OK when you were younger, but now, now you want more from you festivalling experience. The answer is simple: glamping. Clean toilets, nice shower in the morning, spacious living quarters: yep, that's the way to do it.
13. How to drink the whole day
If there's one thing the quarter-life onslaught of weddings teaches, it's how to start drinking at midday and carry on going until long after dark. No 30-year-old, then, should ever get so blindingly drunk that he has to go home before dinner is served.
14. Alfred Hitchcock's back catalogue
It should be made a law that everyone watch Alfred 'The Master of Suspense' Hitchcock's entire oeuvre by the time they reach 30. OK, maybe not all his work – there are 52 surviving films – but certainly Vertigo, North by Northwest, Rear Window, Psycho and Strangers on a Train. Each and every one is a ripping yarn that will provide you with ample input should the 'what's the best film ever made' conversation come up in the pub.
15. What happens in the bedroom stays in the bedroom
Maybe there was a time when you'd regale your friends down the pub with stories of your glorious sexcapades, rejoicing in every salacious detail possible. Not anymore. By the time you're 30, almost anyone you share an intimate moment with stands a chance of becoming your lifelong partner. And the last thing you want is for your mates to know about the bedroom predilections of your own wife.
|Romance / Three Girlfriends Turn Up At Airport To Confront Boyfriend by ledafaze(m): 2:59pm On Sep 16|
Three girlfriends turn up at airport to confront boyfriend
Anything to declare? Three girlfriends turn up at airport to confront boyfriend, 20, after discovering he cheated on them all ... so he fled with his granny
A Level student Becky Connery, 17, was in love with Charlie Fisher, 20
Then she discovered the supermarket worker was seeing another girl, Lizzie
They then discovered their boyfriend, from Hatfield, had yet another woman
All three, from Hertfordshire, made contact over Twitter and Facebook
They met and decided to confront him at Luton Airport when he got home
Mr Fisher came out of customs to see all three shouting 'Liar, liar' at him
He fled with his grandmother as girls berated him for stringing them along
Becky says: 'It's not the 16th century any more - women won't take this'
A supermarket assistant who had three girlfriends at the same time was confronted by all of them when he flew home from holiday.
Charlie Fisher, 20, had been stringing along Becky Connery, 17, Lizzie Leeland-Cunningham, 19, and another girl, who does not wish to be named, for more than six months without any of them finding out about each other.
But when he went away on holiday, Becky discovered he was cheating on her with both Lizzie and the other girl, who is 20, so they came up with the idea of humiliating him at the airport when he got home.
The Iceland worker from Hatfield Garden Village, Hertfordshire, walked through arrivals onto Luton Airport's main concourse to be confronted by all three girls shouting 'Liar, liar' at him before he fled with his grandmother.
Revenge best served cold: Becky Connery, 17, left, Lizzie Leeland-Cunningham, 20, centre, and the third girl went to Luton Airport, left, were all going out with supermarket worker, Charlie Fisher, 20
Today Becky, an A Level student from Welwyn Garden City, told how she found out that the man she was in love with was cheating on her - and how she and his other girlfriends decided to have the last laugh.
She told MailOnline: 'I'd known Charlie for three years but started seeing him in March, and early on we had the conversation that we weren't seeing anyone else, that we were exclusive.
'I was in love with him, and he said he was in love with me, but I had my suspicions from the start.
'He was very protective of his phone, he wouldn't let me put pictures of me and him on social networks, he deleted comments I made about us - looking back, he was very shady.'
Becky, who said Mr Fisher was 'very clever with words', was at his house the night before he flew on holiday when she picked up his phone and saw a message from a girl saying 'I will meet you later'.
It instantly made her suspicious as she said he'd asked her to go home early that night as he had to finish his packing.
Becky, who works part-time as a hairdresser when she's not studying, said: 'Charlie caught me and we had a row - I asked who this girl was and he said she was just a friend.'
Mr Fisher, pictured with Becky earlier this year, used excuses about seeing family and friends to juggle girls
The next day, after Mr Fisher had flown off on holiday to see family in Germany, Becky found the girl, who lives in Hatfield but does not want to be named, on Twitter and sent her a message.
Becky said: 'I told her we were both seeing the same person and she wasn't surprised - she had been with him since January, and had always had her suspicions'
The two girls then met and discovered there was a third girl, Lizzie Leeland-Cunningham, 19, who lives in Hatfield, and made contact with her through Facebook. Lizzie, a bar supervisor, had been dating Mr Fisher since meeting him on Facebook in April.
She said: 'He was a real charmer and had a real way with words - he knew how to say the right thing at the right time.
'But what I didn't realise was that when he was going off to see his friend 'Chris', he was actually seeing one of the other girls. He did it to them, too, saying he was going to see 'Harry' when he was seeing me.
The three women Mr Fisher was seeing have now become firm friends - and say they're glad he's gone
The girls met in the pub to compare notes, and discovered he had been using excuses he was seeing friends or family when he was actually seeing one of them.
Lizzie said: 'I suggested as a joke that we should all go to the airport to meet him. The other two said "Yes, good idea" straightaway, so we met on Saturday morning and went to the airport together.'
As Mr Fisher came out through customs, all three girls called his name.
Becky said: 'He froze and looked at us. He said: "Why are you here? Why would you do this?"
'We were like "Are you joking?"
'I said to him: "I can't believe how you could be like this for seven months."'
Lizzie said: 'He came out of customs and saw all of us and his face just dropped. We said we wanted to talk to him, and he said "Can't I talk to you later?" and we said no, we wanted to talk to him now.
He came out of customs and saw all three of us and his face just dropped
'I said to him "Don't you have anything to say to us?"'.
Mr Fisher headed towards the car park with his grandmother, who had come to collect him, but the girls continued to berate him, stopping only to explain what their grievance was to his grandmother.
'She just shrugged and said "OK" when we told her why we were angry', Becky said.
Becky put a picture of the girls at the airport on Twitter, with the caption: 'Just been at the airport to meet my cheating boyfriend...' and was celebrated as a hero by Twitter users, who said: 'This is awesome - you go, girl.'
Now the girls, who say they're happy to have ousted him from their lives, have forged firm friendships with each other.
'They're great - I'm seeing both of them for nights out soon,' said Becky. 'We can't think what we saw in Charlie in the first place.
'I'm so glad we confronted him - it's not the 16th century any more - girls don't have to put up with this.'
Mr Fisher did not reply to MailOnline's request for a comment today.
