Bring the thread down.....for what reason?? Kindly stop making such suggestions.

People spent several hours and days, researching and writing these stories and profiles. Different people collaborated to make this written documentary project, a reality.

And you want it taken down to achieve what??

None of the people profiled here, has ever uttered a word of complaint about what was written about them.

Most of the stuff here, have been published online elsewhere in the past, so it is all common knowledge.

The whole series was created to inspire Southwest entrepreneurs and start-ups, so that they could see and learn from what others within the same region had done, before them.

It was also done to debunk the allegations from some other quarters, that Yorubas know nothing about business, and cannot be successful entrepreneurs.

If you cannot add value to something, please waka pass.

It is not by force to read and comment on everything.

11-year-old emerges as the winner of the Next Robotics Legend Competition

Ifeoluwa Olusanya, an 11-year-old whiz kid from Lagos, has emerged the winner of the Next Robotics Legend Competition which closed out last weekend. Ifeoluwa designed a robot called Tropical Robotic Farming Solution (TRFS) to solve key problems he identified within the agricultural sector. These problems include the inability to detect soil diseases promptly and the lack of ‘intelligent’ agricultural equipment to control the rate of plant nutrients and fertilisers needed for crops to grow maximally.

Adekunle Odunsi named new director of Comprehensive Cancer Center at UChicago

Physician-scientist is renowned expert in immunology and vaccine therapy for cancer

Adekunle “Kunle” Odunsi, an expert in immunotherapy and vaccine therapy for cancer, has been appointed director of the University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center effective, March 1, 2021. Odunsi also will serve as BSD Dean for Oncology and Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Chicago
.

Odunsi is a nationally recognized physician-scientist with a deep knowledge of discovery and innovation in oncology. He comes to Chicago from Buffalo, New York, where he served as deputy director at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. He also served as executive director of the Center for Immunotherapy and chair of the Department of Gynecologic Oncology at Roswell Park.

“Dr. Odunsi will be charged with taking UChicago Medicine’s National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center to the next level of excellence among the elite cancer programs in the country,” said Kenneth Polonsky, dean and executive vice president for biology and medicine at the University of Chicago and president of the UChicago Medicine health system. “He will play a central role in integrating research, clinical care and education, and in strategic planning for community outreach and engagement.”

Odunsi is a gynecologic oncologist whose research focuses on understanding the mechanisms of immune recognition and tolerance in ovarian cancer and translating these findings to clinical immunotherapy trials. He pioneered the development of antigen-specific vaccine therapy and “next-generation” adoptive T-cell immunotherapies to prolong remission rates in women with ovarian cancer.

“I am incredibly honored and thrilled to be joining the University of Chicago to lead such an outstanding cancer center,” said Odunsi. “With the exceptional reputation for cutting-edge cancer research, compassionate state-of-the-art cancer care and culture of innovation throughout the UChicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center, there are limitless possibilities as to what we can accomplish together.”

Odunsi’s honors and awards include election to the National Academy of Medicine in 2018 and the Rosalind Franklin Excellence in Ovarian Cancer Research Award in 2019. Odunsi received his medical degree from the University of Ife in Nigeria, and his Ph.D. degree from the Imperial Cancer Research Fund Laboratories, MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine, John Radcliffe Hospital, in Oxford, United Kingdom.

Odunsi will succeed Michelle Le Beau, the Arthur and Marian Edelstein Professor of Medicine, who has led the Cancer Center since 2004. Under Le Beau’s direction and strategic vision, the Cancer Center was awarded NCI’s Comprehensive designation in 2008 and has maintained it since. She has guided more than 200 physicians and researchers in the expansion of clinical care, research, education and community engagement.


“Dr. Le Beau has worked tirelessly to revitalize the Cancer Center and realize its full potential,” Polonsky said. “Under her leadership, the strong focus on basic cancer discovery research has been strengthened, and she has led efforts to stimulate new research program development, particularly in the areas of population and clinical research.”

CNBC profiles Bukola Ayodele, a Nigerian software engineer living in New York City and earning $210,000 a year.


Ayodele earns around $210,000 pre-tax annually as a software engineer at an analytics company, including her base salary, bonus and equity. She doesn't touch the equity and lives off of her base salary and bonus.

Her parents placed a premium on education and it was expected that she would pursue a professional career. Born in Nigeria, she immigrated to America with her parents and sister when she was six. Her family worked hard to build a new life in the U.S., her mother as a middle school teacher, and her father first as an accountant and later as a school administrator.

She attended Columbia University where she studied political science. She graduated in 2016 with $7,000 in student loan debt, thanks to combination of needs-based financial aid and holding a job throughout college, as well as financial support from her grandmother and her parents, who also took out some loans. She paid off her loans by the beginning of 2018.

Growing up, "we had a saying that you could either be a doctor or a lawyer or a disgrace," she says, and after college, she expected to go into law. But it didn't take her long to realize she wasn't passionate about the work.

GoldNiagara:
Kevin Olusola (born October 5, 1988) is an American musician, beatboxer , rapper, record producer, singer, and songwriter. Olusola is perhaps best known as the beatboxer of the vocal band Pentatonix . [2] After the group won
NBC 's The Sing-Off in 2011, they released five albums, which all charted in the top 5 of the Billboard 200 charts, have sold over 2 million records, [3] and have amassed more than two billion views on their YouTube channel.


Olusola has also been identified as developing the art of "celloboxing" (playing cello and beatboxing simultaneously). [4] His celloboxing version of Mark Summer 's "Julie-O" went viral in April 2011, which led him to become involved with Pentatonix. Olusola has performed at classical musical festivals such as the Amsterdam Cello Biennale and the Kronberg Academy Festival, opened the TED Conference in Vancouver, and was chosen by
Quincy Jones to represent him in concert at the 2012 Montreux Jazz Festival on the same program as Bobby McFerrin and Chick Corea . [5] Olusola is fluent in Mandarin. [6]

Early life and education
Olusola was born in Owensboro, Kentucky, to Nigerian-born Oluwole Olusola, a psychiatrist, and Grenadian -born Curline Paul, a nurse. At that time, his father had just come from medical school in Nigeria and an internship in
Trinidad and Tobago to Loma Linda University (a Seventh-day Adventist institution), where he met his wife while she was doing her MPH . After they married, they moved to Hershey, Pennsylvania (where Kevin's sister Candace was born) for a short period of time, and then to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania , for his father to finish residency at Albert Einstein Medical Center (where Kevin’s brother Kellon was born). Olusola started his education at Greater Philadelphia Junior Academy, but his family eventually moved to Owensboro , Kentucky where he was raised. He attended the Triplett School, a Montessori-based school, for a short period of time before his parents transferred him to the Owensboro Public School system for their accelerated math program that allowed him to take precalculus starting in the 9th grade. He applied and was accepted to
Phillips Academy Andover , Choate Rosemary Hall , and Deerfield Academy for boarding school for 11th grade (upper year) but decided on Andover.
Olusola says that Andover taught him work ethic, tenacity, and discipline. [ citation needed ] He went from an average student to a high honors student in his senior year. He was involved in community service (directing a music program for elementary string students) and Spanish-speaking activities, where he led the Spanish language table and went to Costa Rica for four weeks to study Spanish. Olusola chose to attend Yale University , but was also accepted at Princeton University , Stanford University , University of Pennsylvania , and
Brown University .


At Yale, Olusola planned to pursue medicine and finished all his pre-med requirements. He started as an academic music major, but decided to switch to East Asian Studies after being introduced to China through a 10-day Chinese government sponsored trip for 100 Yale students. He lived in Beijing for 6 months through a PKU-Yale joint program during his sophomore year, and then took a leave of absence during the 2009-2010 academic school year on Yale’s Light Fellowship to study intensive Chinese at the Inter-University Program for Chinese Language Study in Beijing. In school, Olusola was the Director of Communications for a Rhodes Scholar-led non-profit called College Outreach, and he worked as a book monitor in the Yale Law School library and as a practice room monitor at the
Yale School of Music . He graduated from Yale in 2011.


Musical career
1988–2010: Career beginnings
Olusola’s parents discovered his musical talent when he was six months old and decided to put him in music lessons. He started the piano at age 4, the cello at age 6, and alto saxophone at age 10. He was heavily involved in music programs throughout grade school at
Owensboro, Kentucky, in school and the community participating in jazz band , marching band , concert band , orchestra , and community youth orchestra. When Olusola was 12 years old, he was selected as the principal saxophonist of the United States Collegiate Wind Band and toured Europe during the summer for three weeks. He was also the principal cellist of the Kentucky State Youth Orchestra and received the highest honor at the Kentucky Governor’s School for the Arts . He soloed and performed in a piano trio at
Carnegie Hall as the winner of the American Fine Arts Festival , and soloed a second time on alto saxophone for PBS ’s special " From the Top at Carnegie Hall ".


While at Yale , Olusola was one of the principal cellists of the Yale Symphony Orchestra and participated in chamber music. It was during his junior year when he started thinking about music as a career when, that previous summer in Beijing, he began working on "celloboxing". One of his teachers at a Harvard summer intensive Chinese program suggested that he should try combining the two abilities. He won runner-up in Yo-Yo Ma ’s "Celebrate and Collaborate With Yo-Yo Ma" competition (Ma said Olusola’s version of Dona Nobis Pacem was "inventive and unexpected"wink and opened for KRS-One at Southern Connecticut State University . Olusola says that, during that spring break, his pre-med mentor Brandon Ogbunugafor (who was MD/PhD at Yale at the time) helped him to make the decision to finally go into music, saying medicine would always be there. After a summer of neurobiology research at Yale, Olusola moved to Beijing for his academic year of Chinese study and continuously honed his celloboxing skills. He started uploading celloboxing covers to his YouTube channel and performed for Ambassador Jon Huntsman, Jr. at his residence, and on Beijing Television with Li Yu Gang and Chong’er (Chinese beatboxer). He also met KorElement , an American rapper in Beijing, and they did covers on YouTube, in addition to performing together at the American Pavilion for the 2010 Shanghai World Expo . [10]
2010–present: Pentatonix
After Olusola’s academic stint in China, he spent the summer in Beijing working on his celloboxing version of Mark Summer’s "Julie-O" the summer of 2010 while living in a Chinese friend’s apartment as a way to begin expanding his skills. He continued working on it throughout the year and decided to audition to music schools with it. He was accepted at
New England Conservatory for their Third Stream Program and Berklee School of Music , but chose Berklee in the end. During his spring semester of senior year, Olusola (along with YouTube sensation Sam Tsui ) was nominated for a graduation-day prize and videotaped "Julie-O" with the help of YouTube star and Yale alum Jake Bruene. Olusola posted the video on April 14, 2011, and by the second week, the video had reached number 6 on
Reddit, and had become a viral video on the Internet, garnering national and international acclaim.


At the time the video was going viral, Olusola was contacted by Scott Hoying who was impressed by his musicality and beatboxing skills. Hoying was forming a group with Kirstie Maldonado, Mitch Grassi, and Avi Kaplan to compete in season three of NBC ’s The Sing-Off and he wanted Olusola to join. The second weekend after Olusola graduated college, he met the group the day before the audition, and Pentatonix was born. After the taping of the show, Olusola did a brief stint as the cellist for
Gungor on the David Crowder Band "7" Tour before returning with Pentatonix for the season finale. The group won the Sing-Off title on Nov. 28th, 2011, which landed them a recording contract with Sony Music Entertainment and a $200K cash prize. The band immediately moved to Los Angeles to record their first album with producer Ben Bram, whom they met on the show. [11][12] Their first EP , PTX, Volume 1, was released on June 26, 2012, charting at #14 in the US Billboard 200 chart and #5 on the digital chart. [13] It sold 20,000 copies in its first week of release. [14][15] They embarked on a fall 2012 tour and released their Christmas EP, PTXmas, on November 13, 2012.


After their winter–spring 2013 tour, Pentatonix returned to the studio to finish their second EP, PTX, Vol. II. [16][17][18] Olusola became more interested in songwriting and production, especially with how stomping and clapping could be used as an effective production tool for bolstering their a cappella tracks. Olusola co-wrote four of the songs on the album,
Natural Disaster, Love Again , Hey Momma/Hit the Road Jack and Run to You . The album was released on November 5, 2013 and debuted at number ten on the Billboard 200 and number one on the Independent charts, selling 31,000 copies in the first week. The Christmas album was re-released on November 19, 2015, additionally labeled the "Deluxe Edition", and contained two additional tracks. [19] One of these, The Little Drummer Boy , charted in several Billboard categories including peaking at number two on the "Streaming Songs" chart and number one on the "Holiday 100" chart. It became the fourth-highest charting holiday song on the Hot 100 in Billboard history. [20] Pentatonix signed a deal with RCA Records after finishing their third US tour and their second European tour in 2014, and have finished and released [ when? ] their self-titled album. Olusola also released a solo EP in early 2015, titled The Renegade EP . It charted #1 on Billboard Classical Albums Chart and Apple Itunes Classical Chart.

On February 8, 2015, Pentatonix won a
Grammy in the "Best Arrangement, Instrumental or a cappella " category for their song "Daft Punk", a medley of songs by Daft Punk . [21] On February 15, 2016, Pentatonix won a Grammy in the same category, this time for “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” from their “That’s Christmas to Me” album. [22] On February 12, 2017, Pentatonix won a Grammy in the "Best Country duo/group performance" category for "Jolene" which featured Dolly Parton. [23]
