I am surprised at the learned Professor's comments. Violence took place in other parts of the nation before during n after elections. Many lives n properties were lost in those areas. Therefore by the professor's comments, it means many elected officials in the country climbed in over dead bodies.

lastpage:Only fool and imbeciles commit suicide when there is an option and better alternative to stay alive. Sensible normal thinking human beings will run today so as to continue fighting tomorrow. The major financier of the orka coup is alive today and enjoying his money because he ran when the heat was on . Every sensible intelligent soldier must know when to run and when to fight. Once a soldier is dead he is as useless as a dead dog . Charles Taylor ran away from doe only to come back and become the president. Don't play the hero when you have the opportunity to run because even ur wife will Bleep other men after 3 months and you will become a forgotten memory. He who fights today and runs only lives to fight another day. The coward will sit down with his children,wife in a nice wonderful mansion and be pointing to the grave of a brave man who is already rotten 6 feet below.i will rather be a living legend than a dead hero. Abiola could have been alive today and maybe even become the president if he had ran or played the fool then.

Hours after the birth of her twin girls, Margaret Emmanuel gave up the ghost, leaving her husband with the twins and their three grown-up siblings. To make matters worse, Margaret’s family in Ebonyi are demanding that Emmanuel fulfils a vital aspect of their culture before the burial ceremonies even commence. Taiwo Abiodun reports.
At first it was congratulations and celebration galore as Madam Margaret Emmanuel was delivered of a set of beautiful twin girls. But few hours after, the joyful mood turned sour and mourning took over, as news filtered in that mother of the twins had passed on. She gave up the ghost on her way to the hospital, living the twins behind without the very vital motherly care. It also marked the beginning of the trauma of her husband and father of the twins, Mr. Adejo Emmanuel. Aside being shattered by the news, he was suddenly faced with a somewhat insurmountable challenge of weaning two infants alone. But the trauma did not end there, only Emmanuel didn’t know at this point in time.

Now I'm impressed with your civility kudo.
However it is not right but the people are making it difficult to defend them. In one of their protest they went on taunting soldiers who they know are intoxicated by the power of the gun. I hope that answers that
Its unjustifiable in a sane society seriously. However there legal ways to go about such not forcing people to close down their shop because of your own interest to protest.
ikennaf1:I despise the way Kanu was going about everything like a fanatic and all his doings make treason offence to be slam on him with all his hate and spiteful message beyond. Freedom of expression has limitation not asking arm to fight a state and all sorts
Biafra is free to pursue anything this is a free world but not in that manner. Have you ever seen Cataluya in Spain which is also seeking stateship in that manner? Legal ways are availble
Seek international lawyers for advice
Proceed to UN
Referendum and all legal methods
And not the way they are telling people to shut down their business to protest
RIP to the dead

Influence Your World With The Christ-life - Sunday, February 14th.
You yourselves are our letter of recommendation, written on your hearts, to be known and read by all men; and you show that you are a letter from Christ delivered by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts (2 Corinthians 3:2-3 RSV).
Many people have the wrong perception about Christianity. Some say its the worship of God. Others say its the belief in Jesus Christ; and some others say its going to church. Though Christians worship God, believe in Jesus Christ, and go to church, none of these really define Christianity.
Christianity is the out-working of the Christ-life in a human being. Its the manifestation of the righteousness of God in a human person. Its the daily walk of divinity in humanity; Gods daily walk in a man; thats Christianity! Christianity is the Word of God in manifestation; Christians live-out the Word of God.
Your life, as a Christian, is the expression of the Word of God; youre the epistle of Christ. Therefore, your lifestyle should reflect who you really are; youre a true witness, a living proof that Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, and is alive today. The Apostle Paul, in explaining this, said were living epistles (letters).
Your life is being read by all; therefore, your words, actions, and attitude should transmit, and transfer, the Christ-life to the people around you. Influence your world with the grace and glory of Gods Kingdom. Impact those in your world with the Christ-life! Thats your calling; thats your purpose; thats your life!
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for making me an expression of divinity and a manifestation of your Word. As I walk the paths of this earth, I have the consciousness that my life is the expression of the righteousness of God! As Jesus is, so am I in this world. Im your outstretched arm to the world, in Jesus Name. Amen.
Further Study :
Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; 2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour.
Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: 27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
1 John 3:10
In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

|Literature / QUEST FOR LOVE (for/to Ikpegbu Victory) by faboadetimothy(m): 4:52am|
QUEST FOR LOVE
(for/to Ikpegbu Victory)
Along the long lone love lane
I trod like an ancient weak snail
Looking for that my heart desires,
Which in me often ignite frosty fires.
Many I find are full of decent deceit.
Nooks and crannies verily I visit
Yet that which I seek remains hidden.
Yes, it remains somewhere hidden
Loudly like the archangels' trumpets
My voice echoes though like a puppet's,
But all seems like trying to fetch water
In a basket. Many a time I fairly falter
Neither its gain nor pain I fully taste
Yet without a stay I, out of love, waste
All I mainly make as my strength.
I plod to every breath and length.
The hope fades away day and night
And that which I search is out of sight.
If all ends here, standing quite upright
Is that which my burning heart desires.
And not until I find it I won't retire,
Amidst hellish sun and stony rain,
I walk and work without being frail.
Some voices far away say I'll fail
And that all the efforts are in vain
And their ill-fated words will prevail
They say long time ago Love died
And anyone pursuing the dead will die.
All warnings and threat I for once defy.
Like Romeo, for the course of Love
I will spend the last pint of my blood.
Not deterred I keep the timely pace
Looking forward to either the grass or grace
For what has beginning must have an end
My time, energy and money I spend
While looking for the rarest treasure.
And I deny myself the youthful pleasure
For this some call me the best fool
Who's looking for utopian thing in the Wood.
Ah! Muse! What would I later saintly say
When rather than glory I hold a fail?
Solitarily, I traverse the the lone road.
If I don't look back mine is the gold.
Ticking-tacking is the clock, the Time
Hurries on like an athlete with the Tide.
Behold her beamed with impeccable smiles,
And there lies that which I find
Which lives in her freely without a bind
So sacred in this snared sour clime
Her breath travels many million miles
And makes those who cherish love happy
I walk towards her direction in a snappy
She is as neat as the crystal placed
In the bright sun. I move forward to embrace
The rare gem gently like a dove on a tree.
The meeting is quite above the level of glee
For her fair flawless beauty drives me.
And like a flood words from my mouth flow
For everywhere, everything is quite aglow.
"Lady", I said, "Can I make out of you a wife"?
She like an innocent child looks at me a while
"In you I found the rare seed of love I seek
Beauty, though you have, makes you meek"
When she talks, my heart warmly cheers
Offloading all fears my poisoned mind bears
"Love is designed for who knows its worth
Some run after lust and later have its wrath"
"In you, I'll build a garden of love" I replied
"And you as the vinedresser I solely rely",
Again she smiled, "The seed will grow
Although it might at first be somehow slow"
My heart knows nothing but just joy
Which ends all the tangled weary toil.
Like a mustard seed the Love seed grows
And many more people want to know
How without being noticed it like a tower rises
Even in the pessimists' all-seeing blind eyes
In her, I find hope, cares, and confidence
Some out of dolorous doubt demand evidence
For they like theirs expect some taints
Like a celebrated bard I hold a beaded bell
Jingling to air my found love, a Belle
All is full of fun-filled fair affection
Bereft of any perceived defection
And free from any lustful infection.
All these I plan to on marble write
As we are getting things right.
|TV/Movies / "Pool Dead". Of Course He Thinks "Super",deadpool by miopioli: 3:24am|
Adaptation of superhero who normally put focus on the protagonist in crisis, his dark past and the like, Deadpool overflows escape conventions. The protagonist has, on the basis of inversion as "Pool dead". Of course he thinks "super", but does not want to mistaken as a hero.
With humor akin to the Kick-Ass , applied in irony and mockery, the film puts Deadpool red dress to hide the blood, while fear and incontinence take some of the villains trajarem brown. Without reservation, violence of action is explicit
|Travel / Re: Canadian Express Entry/federal Skilled Workers Program Connect Here by zandora: 3:21am|
Thanks for your message, of course I'll share my tips so here they are:
Your choices - Firstly I had already made up my mind that I wasn't going to do menial jobs immediately I landed and gave myself 7 months until I started looking at other avenues. The reason is that say you get a low skilled job working at McDonald's for example just to get the Canadian experience or to make ends meet before you finally secure your dream job, it will be almost impossible to land your dream job after. Why do I say this? You can apply for a job today and get called to attend an interview as early as the next day if shortlisted. Now if you've already taken up a menial job, what time would you have to attend the interview bearing in mind that if you're new to a job it's almost impossible for you to get any time off? How many excuses would you then be ready to give your new employer to take time off to attend your interviews? Another thing is that by the time you get home after work most of the time you'll be very tired and won't have time to start looking for the jobs in your field to apply to since most of those menial jobs are quite demanding. Finally, once you take that menial job and your working environment is very conducive, your manager very nice etc, you'll almost certainly become to comfortable and therefore end up being stuck in a dead end job before you know it.
Your resume - Your resume has to be in the Canadian format, in fact this is a must! You can look up Canadian format resumes online or pay one of those Canadian recruitment websites to clean up your resume for you (my friend got rejected and was told it was because of the grammatical errors on his resume). Furthermore, get rid of the countries on your resume. Sadly in this day and age people still discriminate, so once they see an experience is not from Canada but from a 3rd world country like Nigeria they'll be very quick to judge. If you've got the skills trust me they'll contact you and then ask where the company you worked for was located and if they like you they'll take you. Trust me, I can't count how many times interviewers told me they had never heard of First Bank.
Your Accent - Believe it or not this is a deal breaker, I didn't believe it before until I saw it for myself. A friend of mind told me and another friend about a job opening so we applied for the job. A few days later I got a call from the HR of that company asking me a few basic questions, then he booked me in for an interview on the spot. Excitedly I called my other friend to ask if he ever got the call and if he too was to attend an interview. He told me that he got a call but the HR guy didn't book him in for an interview but instead said he'd contact him later (he never did). I then asked my friend what he said to the HR guy on the phone and he said "nothing oh!, I only said elo, oo is this", I just knew there and then it was because of his accent. Now my accent was never perfect, in fact it took me a while to stop pronouncing ask as aks. I'm not saying you must have phonetics, just be able to pronounce you words clearly without any 'h' or any factor. It might be hard but it's achievable.
Your Experience - Whatever is on your resume would be the job you'll be shortlisted for. So if for example you worked in customer services then you should apply for a customer service job. If you worked in a bank as cashier then you should apply for a teller job to maximise your chances of being selected. If you are a cashier applying for a sales or any other role it'll be very difficult to get the job. So my advice, if you have experience in a job you didn't like doing, put it on your resume then when you get the same job here work for 6 months and change departments. There's lateral movements in many companies here, infact companies that are looking to fill vacancies hire internally before going externally.
The Interview - I flunked my first 3 interviews because one of the reasons was that I was always boning like I was attending a frowning contest. When I was in Naija I landed my jobs by frowning and speaking viciously. Unfortunately I thought this would work here but how wrong was I. It was after my 3rd interview that I then went to carry out some research and found that Canadians are one of the friendliest people and like when people appear friendly and chatty. So on my 4th interview I planted the fakest smile I could muster, jeez I was smiling at every and anything so it was no surprise when I progressed to the next stage of the interview.
How to answer interview questions - In total I've attended about 10 interviews (all good roles in financial institutions). Wasn't successful in 4 of them, got 2 job offers and progressed to the next stage in the remaining 4 but cancelled after I accepted one of the offers. Around my 4th interview I did some proper research and realised I was answering questions wrongly. Firstly all the companies asked some repeated questions which were: Tell me about yourself? Give me 3 strengths and 1 weakness? Give me an example of when you worked in a team? Why XX company and why this role? You may look at the questions and think it's easy to answer them, wrong! There's actually a way to answer these questions effectively which is:
- Tell me about yourself: You need to use the EES approach which is Education, Experience and Skills. So you should talk about your education from your highest degree, then your experience from the most recent, then the skills you've acquired over the years (hint: you need to look at the skills they require from the Job posting and mention some of them).
- Give me 3 strengths and 1 weakness: If you just list them then you're making a big mistake. You have to mention each one and then give an example. Therefore you could say 'I'm very proficient in the use of Microsoft office suites, for example in my previous job I used Microsoft Word to type out letters to our clients and PowerPoint to give presentations'. Then for the weakness question you have to talk about a weakness you previously had and you've now worked on and how you worked on it.
- Give me an example of when you worked in a team: Talk about how you worked in a team, saw challenges, how you were able to overcome the challenges and the result.
- Why XX company: Check out the about us section on the company website. Also always talk about diversity because many, infact all companies hire ppl from various backgrounds as a policy. Each time I tell them I would want to work for them because they're very good at hiring people no matter the background they come from they always have this big smile on their faces and nod their heads affirmatively, they love it!
- Why this role: Talk about the previous experience you had in this role and how you loved it.
These are the most important things to ace a job in your field.
One important advice to those who are yet to arrive, don't believe those people who tell you that you won't get a job in your field. You only need to believe in yourself, have determination and trust in God. You're a skilled worker for a reason, so show the reason why you qualified as a skilled worker in the first place. At times you might be frustrated by rejections as I did but the biggest mistake you'll make would be to give up. I'm not saying that everyone who arrives would get a job in their field, but majority should.
I'm still going to take some certifications so I can transfer to another dept in my bank and in a higher level.
I apologise to the people who may think I'm taking up space by my posting as this thread is for people seeking advice for the FSW preparation but I just thought this might help a few people.
