Travel / Re: Expert Explains How To Survive "Almost Every" Plane Crash by uzoexcel(m): 7:05pm
I wonder what d procedure is for when the plane Is about to crash into the sea or ocean
Acmetek:
Almost all aircraft accidents are survivable – with 87.7 per cent of incidents involving zero fatalities – but there’s one step which can massively increase your chances, an expert has explained.
Last year, crew members who were pulled from the wreckage of the plane crash which wiped out nearly an entire Brazilian football team said they had survived by "following emergency protocol’ – while other passengers stood up and screamed.

Specifically, the crew members remained seated, and huddled over to protect from the impact.

Adopting a ‘brace’ position, where passengers curl over and fasten seatbelts will prevent many of the most severe injuries incurred in crashes, an unnamed plane safety expert told Mail Online.

The expert said, "When a plane crashes you have two impacts."
"The first one passengers feel is a tightening of the seat belt. But as the aircraft stops you continue to move forward.

"But it’s the secondary impact that’s critical. What will happen is that your upper torso will move forward. And in moving forward you will hit something.

"That’s certainly the case in economy class seats.

"The best position to adopt is one where you crouch down and reduce the movement of the head in a forward direction.

"Anything you can do to stop your upper torso and your head moving forward is the best position to be in.

"If you’re in an aircraft accident you have a very good chance of survival.

"Very few accidents involve total impact with the ground, and those that do are probably non-survivable."

God bless you jare. Nigerians tallk as if these countries don't have embassies in Nigeria hence they don't know Nigerians. If you really want to know about Nigeria ask a foreigner. They do a lot of researches and studies about us and the get direct interactions with our People so they know our mindset. I can bet you there are south Africans in Ajegunle and onitsha on a study mission getting direct info on how we think about them and their country. When they talk we will argue they don't know us. They know a lot. We talk to them everyday about our plans to go and hustle (negatively) in their country foolishly. The give feedback to their country. They know us well. We are fool of evil. The world has gone beyond that level where 9 out of 10 people just get on a plane to go and hustle in a strange land. Now 9 out of 10 go to work for their companies while just 1 goes on behalf of him/herself into a strange country. See Chinese, Germans, Americans, South Africans, even Lebanese etc.

You fail to see that these S. Africans are xenophobic. They hate foreigners, most especially Nigerians. It's not as if Nigerians are perfect. If this hate speech is encouraged by people like you, don't be surprised if it comes back to haunt you.

@Osemigho

The Canadian embassy website explicitly states that you need a total of CAD10K plus tuition fee for a year a as proof of funds. It also stated that it can be proof of funding paid from within Canada if you have a scholarship or are in a Canadian-funded educational program.

My question is, having been granted full funding do you still need to provide SOA or will the funding letter suffice?

Even though i got through school a while ago, i'd add a few things to the thread

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

*Ease of visa =3/5 getting tougher to get a visa but you improve your chances with admission to top tier schools with good funding offers
*Quality of Education= 5/5 I'm not sure where else you can get the same quality of education
*General Affordability = 2/5 Education is tremendously expensive here. If you don't have rich parents or were not able to secure funding, it can be a nightmare. Note that school loans are not available to international students
*Ease of Admission= 3/5 A good GPA and excellent test scores should stand you in good stead
*Quality of life as a foreign student= 4/5 Americans are generally very friendly, besides, you'll definitely find a Nigerian in practically most cities here
* Size of African/Nigerian students= 3/5 Depends on the school. Schools in smaller towns typically have fewer nigerian/african students. If that's important to you, then target bigger schools in larger cities.
*Survival/hustle= 0/5 Don't even think about it, you'll be on a plane out of the US before you know it. Being illegal here is not an experience you want to go through
*Long term benefits = 3/5 getting an H1B to work after school isn't automatic. Without it, you can't work here and will have to return home. If you can find a nice American girl to marry (a real marriage please!) then you're set for life!

Wow! This is quite comprehensive! Great job. I wish more people could contribute.
Travel / Remind Me Never To Book An Early Morning Flight by dukeokafor: 4:10pm On Feb 15
I had engagements to meet up with, in Enugu, so I just had to book a morning flight. Otherwise, I'd have slept my way through, gone in the evening and would have saved myself from the whole ordeal.

Naturally, I'm someone who keeps to time, so I woke up by 5am. Showered and did all the man things to look sexy but at the end of the day, "Who sexy epp?". I had planned that I would leave the house by 6am but when it got to the said time, the driver who was meant to pick me had switched off his phone and was inaccessible. Apparently, my dear driver man had been misinformed that my flight was 6pm and not 6am. Who misinformed him? I don't know. People from his village I suppose.

By 6:10am, I knew that waiting for this 'Oga' would cost me my flight. That's how I started looking for alternatives. In my confusion, my friend burst in, "Duke, Use Uber nah". "Which one be Uber again?! That thing go cost and as you see me so, I no get money jor", I retorted. After much convincing, I decided to use Uber. I'm not going to advertise the app by talking about it, they should pay me first!

The Uber guy came and journey to MMA2 started. "Bros, you go drive fast because as e be so, I go lose my flight", I kept on repeating this. He was fast enough and then we got to the airport. It was time to pay and the trouble started. The trip fair was just N500 but my debtor of a friend had an outstanding balance of over N3200 and the Uber wasn't gonna let me go or else he is settled. "Which kind Incubus and Saccubus be this wan this morning?", I asked my self. I slipped my hands into my back pack, brought out the money and painfully paid the money. I could literally feel pain in my chest. I started walking to the departure while cussing the living daylight out of my friend who made me get into the Uber. "If only the designated driver had shown up", I thought to myself.

I got to the domestic flights departure lounge, ventured to check-in and was greeted with, "Sir, check-in for the flight to Enugu is over". My head first rang - gbagam! I didn't have money to go back home, I can't get on a flight too, somebody shoot me already. I switched to pidgin immediately, "Una go kill me for here today be that!". Everyone on the queue turned to look at me but I really didn't give two flying bees as to get to Enugu was my goal.

The lady checking in asked me if I had any luggage and I told her I had just my back pack, 'shikena'. She quickly checked me in and told me to hurry. I carried my 'kaya' and started running to board. In my mind I was like, "Today na for Aeroplane Tyre I go dey enter Enugu".

Got to the security checkpoint. They asked me to remove my laptop and my sneakers. I just went weak......

I snapped out of the weakness in a matter of nano seconds and I just pulled off my 'Aba made' Puma Fenty Sneakers without removing untying the laces. I passed through the whole thing, held my laptop with my left hand, my sneakers with my right hand while my bag was strapped to my shoulder and started racing to enter 'aelonprane' with my heart doing 'kpum kpum kpum'.

I was the last passenger to get inside and everyone was already seated. I could see their judgy eyes looking at me especially one man with a Unclad chin who was fixated on my beards. "20B, 20B, 20B", I kept repeating, it was the seat allocation for me. To me, I was repeating this in my mind but little did I know that my mouth was doing the same thing, slightly aloud. My fellow concerned Nigerians kept pointing and pointing until I got to my seat.

I carefully placed back my laptop in my bag and stored my bag. Sat on my seat and never bothered to wear back my sneakers. Strapped myself in with the seat belt and I gently drifted off. Apparently, I have experienced some sort of stress to drift off that way.

"Bros, we are in Enugu now", said the gentleman beside me while tapping me to wake up from my slumber. He had helped me keep my inflight snack. I picked my sneakers up, got my back pack, and walked down the steps of the plane to the arrival lounge with just my socks on.

As I walked to the arrival lounge on socks alone - sneakers in hand, I kept telling myself, "Emeka, If dem born you well, if you know say dem really born you well, book early morning flight again, anu mpam".

Lies




The demise of the airline began just after being managed by KLM. During the reign of Shehu Shagari, the airline accumulated enormous debts and in fact at the end of the administration, the debts were even bigger than its revenue. To make the matter worse, the airline had an excessive number of staff with up to 500 staff for each plane. By 1984, which corresponded to the reign of General Buhari, about nine of the aircraft were not serviceable and the airline had up to 8500 employees even though it had no need for most of them. As a matter of fact, few ideas were initiated during the administrations but these proved abortive.

http://aviationtribune.com/airlines/africa/rise-demise-nigeria-airways/

Stop changing history see below except from Wikipedia just 3 months after he took power ,this proves Buhari inherited a lot of working planes


"The fleet was 22-strong in March 1985, comprising two DC-10-30s, four Airbus A310s, three Boeing 707-320Cs, two Boeing 727-200s, ten Boeing 737-200s, and one Boeing 737-200C;"

All the aircraft you mentioned there was ordered by the Shagari govt ,the fact that a few were delivered in 1984 doesn't mean Buhari ordered them ...Madam it is on record that Buhari didn't initiate a single capital project a military head of state (pls prove me wrong) ..

Are you aware that Buhari inherited from Shagari 28 sepecat Jaguars , 29 L39 Albatros , 29 alpha jets, about 18 Mig 21s and 12 C130 transport planes making Nigeria the most equipped Airforce in the region at that time , are you also aware that in 20 months under BUHARI this same Airforce will be a shadow of itself ...we are all living witnesses to him performing the same failure all over again ..Keep pretending he is a great leader Okay but one of these days his incompetence will touch you where you might never recover

You know what is funny: I took the pains to go through each of the links hoping you understood what was said to you or if you even read the links you put there. You did neither.

If a plane takes off in Nigeria and 10mins in flight the Pilot realizes 2 of his engines have given way. Then he tries everything possible to salvage the situation but the plane crashes in Ghana. Your argument will be that the Pilot made a mistake in Ghana(resulting in the crash), even when you have evidence that few seconds after take-off he complained to the maintenance engineer at the Towers that his 2 engines had packed up.

Did you also realize that your first "objective link" said Nigeria's previous recession years included 1981, 2004 and 2009? LOL

Knowing you, I expect you to come back again to discredit your own links one by one because none of them made any case for you and instead of taking the option to learn, you trudge on, on this your ignorant path to empty drivel, dumb hero-worship/ lionization of past charlatan leaders and selective patriotism.

And your last question to me just exemplifies what someone else said (which is that you are arguing for the sake of arguing). FYI, if someone was to make it in Nigeria based on 400k in today's economy, it would be more serendipitous than by analysis of factors that you either told blatant lies about, or conjured up in your own chimerical and delusional world.

Hey, you can rant all you like, I wonder what your epistle is for? I don't know if you live abroad or you live in Nigeria but you should be ashamed of yourself regardless.

I see you did not analyse the Bloomberg report, you refused to make sense of the other reports no wonder you keep advocating that people should leave the country, no wonder you can't see opportunities even the ones under your nose. It seems you want others to make the same mistakes you made because I don't understand why you are so unpatriotic, i'm sure you are pained about being unable to return or something.


People make it with 400K, that's a good salary even in this economy, that's a fair salary, he conveniently save 200K out of it (especially being single) that's like a million after 5months.

Remember he isn't paying $2500 for rent per month so please don't bother converting it to dollars (we are not in yanky) his house rent might be around N350K to N450K, which should get him a place close to his office to avoid stressful commuting (if he works in Lagos, one bedroom flats in good locations go for this price range)

People like you don't believe in building wealth, all you want is for large sums of money $7.9m to be dropped at your feet to squander, it's unfortunate.

Travel / My Narrow Escape From Death : A True Life Story by Hotguy27: 5:49pm On Feb 11
I was coming back from work after a usual hectic day on Friday 10th January 2017 when the unexpected happened. I travel for about 130km to and from my new office everyday pending when I can get an accommodation. As far as the place is, I do not feel it because of the good road (so straight and recently tarred) and my new luxury car. I drive myself and sometimes I will activate the cruise control system. On my way back at about 6:20pm, I started feeling slight headache coupled with the usual fatigue after work. To make the case worse, my car developed fault that I could not travel at 150km/hr. I had to slow down to 80km/hr and at this time I activated the cruise control system to assist me avoid the usual speed. Soon after that I saw a towing van positioning to lift out one of the two cars that possibly had a minor head-on collision from the road side. I briefly thought what could be the cause of such accident on a good road like that. Could it be that it happened in the night? I couldn't remember the conclusion of my thought. But I could remember one thing very clear. Yes, very clear - I was hearing sounds like that of a running plane on the tarmac a moment later. I woke up! Yes! It was not a dream. I slept off while driving and I already skipped to the other side of the road. I was already driving (or rather, the car was moving) in the same speed on the other side of the walkway filled with gravel. The sounds produced from my 4 new tyres travelling on the coarse gravel woke me. Thank God I tapped down a little the front side glasses that the sounds were able to filter everywhere in the car.
In confusion but very stable, I brought down the second hand to hold the steering wheel while I screamed 'Jesus! Jesus!!' I could also remember that I muttered 'Blood of Jesus! What is happening?'. I held my steering firm and straight and drove for about 50 meters on the pedestrian way before I stopped. I looked at my back and saw about 3 commercial vehicles and 5 bikes going opposite my direction and in my front, about 15 bikes and 4 vehicles upcoming. I started shaking? I imagined a lot of things. How did it happen? I was not hurt. No dent on the car. What if I had died? I bade bye bye to my friends and colleagues in the office few minutes ago. It would have been the last we saw. My family saw me off in the morning and it would have been the last. God is great! I have never had such a close shave with death. I blamed myself.

REVELATION
The following day, I was still thinking what happened when God revealed to me that he made me invisible during the time I slept off. Road users were not seeing me until when I was moving on the walkway. This is the only thing that has reduced the constant shock I have been having. I am just a pencil.....
To God be the Glory.

There is actually a rail line linking both Abuja and Kaduna. In fact, it was completed some weeks ago.

But a 2nd runway should be constructed at the airport. One can be used for arriving aircraft, while the other could be used for departing aircraft, like it's done at Heathrow.

A new 3.8km runway won't cost more than N10bn.

Moreover, the air force base in Abuja could be upgraded to handle the presidential air fleet. That means the president's plane would only take off and land at the Airforce base.

Show Nigerians with professionals and evidence why they could not use Minna or the former local wing that is now used for private jets.
They talk to us like to he'll with us.
Landing gear of lufthansa plane was what he cited. Is it one day that one will spoil? What about other planes that landed in Abuja why didn't they experience landing gear problem.
They just want chop money big and spend money in Kaduna the home of the kingmakers

Good decision, who will want to go and board a plane where he does not know the location the fulani herdmen are laying ambush.

The northern elites should arm their miscreants for more terrorism in their region, and they should live with it alone.
