Mayor_of_Lagos: That is impossible. International airports have multiple runways for precisely that reason. If a runway is unusable there usually are two parallel sets aligned N-S and E-W to give airlift assist with tailwind for departing and headwind for landing. So at minimum there will be four. If one is blocked what happened to other three?
that word is not in our dictionary in Nigeria

|Religion / The Dead Sea Scrolls -- "The Greatest Manuscript Discovery Of All Times" by OLAADEGBU(m): 12:09pm|
The Dead Sea Scrolls -- "The greatest manuscript discovery of all times"
By William F. Albright
The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls (DSS) at Qumran in 1949 had significant effects in corroborating evidence for the Scriptures. The ancient texts, found hidden in pots in cliff-top caves by a monastic religious community, confirm the reliability of the Old Testament text. These texts, which were copied and studied by the Essenes, include one complete Old Testament book (Isaiah) and thousands of fragments, representing every Old Testament book except Esther. The manuscripts date from the third century B.C. to the first century A.D. and give the earliest window found so far into the texts of the Old Testament books and their predictive prophecies. The Qumran texts have become an important witness for the divine origin of the Bible, providing further evidence against the criticism of such crucial books as Daniel and Isaiah.
Dating the Manuscripts. Carbon-14 dating is a reliable form of scientific dating when applied to uncontaminated material several thousand years old. Results indicated an age of 1917 years with a 200-year (10 percent) variant. Paleography (ancient writing forms) and orthography (spelling) indicated that some manuscripts were inscribed before 100 B.C. Albright set the date of the complete Isaiah scroll to around 100 B.C.—“there can happily not be the slightest doubt in the world about the genuineness of the manuscript.”
Archaeological Dating. Collaborative evidence for an early date came from archaeology. Pottery accompanying the manuscripts was late Hellenistic (c. 150–63 B.C.) and Early Roman (c. 63 B.C. to A.D. 100). Coins found in the monastery ruins proved by their inscriptions to have been minted between 135 B.C. and A.D. 135. The weave and pattern of the cloth supported an early date. There is no reasonable doubt that the Qumran manuscripts came from the century before Christ and the first century A.D.
Significance of the Dating. Previous to the DSS, the earliest known manuscript of the Old Testament was the Masoretic Text (A.D. 900) and two others (dating about A.D. 1000) from which, for example, the King James version of the Old Testament derived its translation. Perhaps most would have considered the Masoretic text as a very late text and therefore questioned the reliability of the Old Testament wholesale. The Dead Sea Scrolls eclipse these texts by 1,000 years and provide little reason to question their reliability, and further, present only confidence for the text. The beauty of the Dead Sea Scrolls lies in the close match they have with the Masoretic text—demonstrable evidence of reliability and preservation of the authentic text through the centuries. So the discovery of the DSS provides evidence for the following:
1) Confirmation of the Hebrew Text
2) Support for the Masoretic Text
3) Support for the Greek translation of the Hebrew Text (the Septuagint). Since the New Testament often quotes from the Greek Old Testament, the DSS furnish the reader with further confidence for the Masoretic texts in this area where it can be tested. (Generated from Norman Geisler, “Dead Sea Scrolls,” Baker Encyclopedia of Christian Apologetics).
"But the word of the Lord endures forever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached to you" (1 Peter 1:25) The Evidence Bible

@back2sender so you think rivers and delta state would join you in your biafra republic? Lol i laugh in ikwere. Most you land grabers attach others to you ridiculuos ambitions? For your information, cocoa is Nigerias second export produce after crude oil, contributing 40% to the national revenue, and it is a known fact that yorubaland is the home of cocoa products. Ondo state also has several oil producing communities in the ilaje/eseodo area of the state. Presently the biggest petrochemical ferteliser plant/petroleum oil refineary in africa, is under construction at the OLOKOLA FREE TRADE ZONE at the ondo/ogun state axis. So tell me who is feeding who?

Love_Decay: Bros... U dn fail the course ooh !
Thanks for the post man!
Now for the points raised. First, this company has come a long way not to seize the opportunity in increasing its bandwith in the Nigerian mobile data market, with the likes of Glo rolling out fibre optic cables a couple of years ago just to meet up demand capacity in the mobile data market and stay relevant with the ever growing competition; I mean, its a no brainer! Who wouldn't want to sell water to the inhabitants of the Kalahari desert (if any)? For a multinational company like Airtel? The likes of Dangote within the shores of Nigeria easily get loans from financial institutions at home and abroad, let alone a telco giant like Airtel. My curiousity goes beyond this to tell me that there's more to that decision of theirs than meets the eyes.
So, lets still come up with more ideas on why Airtel came up with the decision, and if there're other networks that have come up with a BIS plan to take off from where Airtel left off, let's share it here!
|Literature / Re: Fighting Back! by Queen xstar(f): 12:08pm|
This was the fifth time her phone was ringing and the number was strange. That apart, she didn't feel like picking any calls, same as the day before.
Her legs were crossed, she looked up from the magazine she had collected from Ethel. When it was the seventh time, she picked the phone and dragged the receive key. She waited
''Hello Sweetheart …''
She held her breath.
'Hi, who am I on to? '
"I am your one and only sweetheart, don't ever forget. "
'You are nobody to tell me what I should or shouldn't do Oladimeji. You shouldn't give yourself hope on me 'cause you are making the biggest mistake of your life.'
'Hester you should be apologi …'
'Shut your trap and listen to me! I don't give a hoot about the relationship you had or have with my parents but you will never have me. Let me give you some pieces of information that will be handy since your head is not yet upgraded. Hester Douglas can never be yours, you don't mean a thing to me, you don't belong to my class, we are not of same social status, you are not my calibre, we don't share same beliefs, we don't have same physiology about life and our value system has no similarities!'
He exhaled. "Hester I love you and I've forgiven you for everything you have ever done to me. I expect you to be sober, your tongue to be bridle, I expect you to be apologizing. '
'To blazes with you and expectations Oladimeji Adeniyi! Open your eyes, clean your ears, wake up Oladimeji wake up, get a wet handkerchief and wipe your face. You have crossed your rubicon with me, I was proud to announce to the world that you have no hope with me. Pitch your tent somewhere else.'
'No matter how far you run, you can never hide, I will come because you are mine.'
'Yeh! Please …please, I am afraid Oladimeji, I am quivering, very funny.' She laughed. 'You should be ashamed, I have broken many of your rules and you have never been able to do a thing. I am not afraid of you that is Why I jilted you at the altar, that is Why I did what a thousand and one wouldn't dare. I am not browbeaten about the power you possess. let your tail lie between your legs, lick your wounds, pick up the broken pieces of your heart and move on.' With that she ended the call.
She hissed and picked the magazine.
