Politics / Re: "Twitter Orubebe" - Omojuwa Mocked By Ben-Bruce, Nigerians On Twitter by dreamersdream(m): 11:37am
This is an insult to Orubebe. All that matters to Bruce Lee is the attention the tweets bring. I won't be surprised if I hear him ask for the meaning of "twitter ineffectual Buffon" tomorrow.

Finally, twitter no dey increase vote in case he is eying 2019. if in doubt Atiku Vs PMB APC primary election is a perfect case study.

Religion / Re: The Non-Christian Chatbox ( sticky ) by FOLYKAZE(m): 11:37am
Lol. I hope after providing the etymology of spirituality you'd have a LoGiCaL defense not some statements saying nothing. He's already making a mistake by thinking Spirituality is opposite of Religion. But I will provide it still.

Here it is: And Read. Read. Think. And Think. Except you are already made up on what to accept.

'of or concerning the spirit" (ESPECIALLY IN RELIGIOUS ASPECTS), from Old French spirituel , esperituel (12c.) or directly from a Medieval Latin ecclesiastical use of Latin spiritualis "of or pertaining to breath, breathing, wind, or air; pertaining to spirit," from spiritus "of breathing, of the spirit".

Do you agree with this if you don't tell me the etymology?

You are very manipulative in your argument. You went and brought out distored definition fit into what you want me to see (religion)

The embolden is the real deal Rey.

Your presented etymology buttress my points further. Here are the points:

1. The embolden word 'especially' shows you are not providing a sincere and traditional definition of spirituality. Therefore, the first coming definition is one sided, not traditional or original and cannot be accepted.

2. The word 'especially' there makes your whole definition not acceptable. Especially is employed when one want to single out a thing, or situation over others. So what you provided is heavily distorted, one sided, not realistic and cannot be accepted.

3. Etymology of a word got lost when you define the said word from a particular angle, perspective, or aspect. A very good example is the word worship. Etymologically, worship simple mean acknowledging the worth of someone or something. But when you define worship from the christian aspect or perspective, we arrive at this definitions - the act of showing respect and love for a god by praying with other people who believe in the same god; and - The ceremonies, prayers, or other religious forms by which this love is expressed. Can you see the gap between etymology and christian perspective of worship? What has 'acknowledging worth of something' got to do with communual prayer or ceremonies? Do you now see that perception from one particular angle distort, dillute and redress the original or traditionall or root meaning of a word? So Rey, your definition and etymology do not align and cannot be accepted.

4. I dont really have problem with your presented etymology. But what does the etymology have to do with christianity? What are the relationship between the etymology of spirit and Christianity?

5. I am not making any mistake when I said religion is not spirituality. Religion is from the latin religionem meaning bond between man and God. Another latin word is ligare meaning bind. So we can define religion as a belief system that binds some groups together. This is opposing to spirituality from the word spirit which has it root in the latin word spiritualis meaning wind or breathe. , generally meaning individual animation. This seems to translate to the fact that religion is a group belief system, whereas spirituality is more of an individualist belief system.

Christianiny is a group belief system which is religion. Ifa is an individualist belief system which makes it spirituality.

Christianity as a religion contain codes, ethic, rules and regulation, this cannot be said of Ifa which makes it a spirituality.

The most important thing here is individual spiritual experince over brotherhood of christ.
Career / Massive Pay Cut Or Outright Dismissal, Which Would You Choose? by kboyonline007: 11:37am
Originally published at benefitonline.org

Some days ago, I overheard a conversation between a man and one of his friends that works in an oil company regarding a letter the friend had purportedly received from the management of his company about an impending downsizing at the company. This friend that works at an oil company needed an advice from the one who happens to be an entrepreneur, on the next stage of his life.

His company had been really nice by even sending letter to their employees in preparation for an impending layoff. This seems to be the norm these past few months post plunging oil prices, the effect which needs no overemphasis here.Why this article has not been written to discuss the cause or solution to the global economic tumult, we cannot ignore the knock on effect of the falling oil prices on other sectors nonetheless.
Some of these companies have been kind of nice to the point of offering their workers the choice of having to take between massive pay cut or face the axe. Whether the workers accepts the pay cut or otherwise, these corporations always have the upper hand in the end. In as much as lots of people have been led to believe that the current economic tumult is only affecting oil companies, it is far from the truth in reality. Many other companies are also being affected by the problems indirectly example companies supplying equipment or offering other professional services to oil companies.

The question that begs an answer is, if you are faced with the scenario of having to choose between outright dismissal or massive pay cut, which would you choose. Why the most likely response might be a massive pay cut, for those who would rather be employed than go start from scratch, the next question will still ask what if it happens again? I can guarantee you that it will happen again and again until the company no longer needs your services. You ask the question, what if I chose dismissal, what will I be doing? I wish I could give straightforward answer, unfortunately it isn’t that simple. It kind of depends on what you can do.

These friends I overheard their conversation couldn’t convince the other friend of what he needs to. This was someone that was taking home a six figure salary but apparently never planned for the rainy days. His vacations were spent shuttling from Holland to Dubai to the Caribbean and back to work. His mouth had become so wide that his friend was hesitant in advising him on what to do.

This is where the next question comes, are you prepared to start afresh? If you are prepared for the rough journey of being an entrepreneur, you need to walk away and become your own boss. However, what I can not guarantee is the fact that you are going to have a smooth ride to the top, that’s absolutely impossible. But you will be happy you took that step towards self dependence. If instead you choose to accept massive pay cut, I can guarantee you that it will happen again, again and again until you are no longer useful to the company. So you make a choice, carefully.

Business / Re: How Do I Do Twiiter Ads As Nigeria . Needs Help by imohchard(m): 11:37am
I suggest you check your country settings to ensure it is correct. Sometimes, Twitter would detect a divergence between your country settings and the actual IP your ad is loading from and instead of giving you a clear error message they'd just ignore you. Check here for help: https://support.twitter.com/articles/20169220?lang=en#

Alternatively, why not use Facebook? Their system has larger web population, more flexible and more easily targeted... and even more affordable. And they are more responsive too.

Twitter is cool also... I even prefer it to Facebook.. But if you don't know how to go about it you might stuck and that why many people don't use it

9ice response from the Ooni of ife

“Let me emphasize for the umpteenth time that Kabiyesi Ooni is less concerned over any supremacy hullabaloo. He is only interested for now in how the sacred throne of Oduduwa can explore measures through which the collective interest and genuine unity among Yoruba and other tribes within the larger House of Oduduwa can be enhanced.

let the benin's continue to rewrite history. continu!!!

Don't mind these Bini fools. Some even said the Oba of Bini will use some voodoo on Ooni of Ife - hysterical. How are you going to use the orishas you borrowed against the original custodian of the orishas? grin If and when the Ooni visits what's left of the relics of the small ancient kingdom that later became overrated due to fables - the Oba of Bini has to bow down to his progenitor.

Everything about bini was borrowed from Yorubas. They borrowed the Oba dynasty. Borrowed Yoruba orishas. Borrowed knowledge of artworks from Yorubas. Borrowed idea of building moats from Ijebus etc.. They borrowed almost everything, yet they make noise everywhere.
