Programming / Re: Check Out My Nairaland Clone Website Page by Arobake: 3:58am On Apr 12
Thank you.

A responsive design using HTML becomes a website when you deploy it on the web. Go to app.netlify. com (remove the space before .com), create an account and click to add new site. Thereafter you just have to drag the folder containing your design into the netlify page and it will be deployed for you (make sure your html file is named index.html). You can now copy the link of the deployed site and paste here. It's pretty easy, but if you need more guide, you can Google 'how to deploy your site on netlify'.[/quote]

Hello.
Does one need a background in Engineering or Mathematics to learn Software development (Java, etc), please?

Also what age would you say it's too old to learn/make money with the knowledge?

Thank you.

Lalami3232:
Software development na blood money oooo. I paid 300K to learn just Java at NIIT back then. I would advise youths to go into it because it's the only business you can start up without need a capital in 9ja. It's the only good job you can get in 9ja without needing a BSC. Though I've left Java sha, but the experience I got from Java gave me advantage to learn JavaScript (React and Node), Python (Django) etc.
Instead of you to go do ashawo or yahoo, go learn programming and thank me later. If you no fit get access to materials, I go help to give you some. It's my little way of taking menance from the street grin

I absolutely agreed with everything you said, until you got to the last bit..."she will be the one at the losing end".
Losing end of what, though? I mean what is the opportunity cost here? What is the irrestitable prize? A useless, dishonest man who makes you feel less than zero? High blood pressure/stroke? All kinds of veneral diseases/potential death? Not ever being happy in your own home for the rest of your life? Just so you can be Mrs. Something? Smh. Nah. The prize doesn't justify the life.

When she dies or develops a stroke and becomes a vegetable from a veneral disease or high blood pressure, some1 else will "take her place" anyway.

So like you had said, let her get a job/business first. And she can take it from there.

And she should know that, if she leaves the man, the other baby mama will step in and take her place... So she will be at the losing end...

Step 3. It will redirect you to this website www.safefrom.net
Choose your video file type and format of the video and press the download button and the video will get downloaded on your pc for free.

NOTE: Spot the difference in the youtube video URL of Step 1 and Step 2. Make sure you add the “ss” after www. i.e www.ss then the rest of the link

ALSO NOTE: The URL http://www.ssyoutube.com/watch?v=Gt2SmMprL48 is for tutorial. Use the URL of the video you want to download.

Take a closer look, dear. Think outside the box. Now, look at the thread like an entrepreneur -
and these are the facts that will strike you:
You dont need to waste time (and some stupidly-priced software) to do market research as to if these would be well-received in the market or not. You read that there were loads of expatriates there. You can see (hear) all the ooohs and aaahs at the beauty of the items.
2. You know where to get the items (I bet if you looked further, you will even see cheaper places in Balogun). But that will come later.
3. You have a good idea of the costs.
What are you all waiting for?!
You could banish that your poverty.
Look for money, not even up to #10'000.00
Buy only 2. Add the cost of your transport, then for profit, add only #500.00

-Aggressively advertise on your Facebook account in the time you spend following and liking and watching vid clips on Fbook. Advertise on Olx and Jumai/Daily deal (or whatever it is called/Konga/Nairaland etc.
-Carry to those high networth offices - banks, oil companies & multinationals in Ikoyi, Lekki, V.I. I"ll give you another tip free of charge: those people are very very well paid but they are also very very well-used. So they have money, but dont have time to relax and visit such markets.
A lot of them also have friends outside the country who would love these items as gifts.

Reinvest your profit till you are a bit comfortable. As a matter of fact, at this stage, you will find friends who will be happy to invest once they see your Account Book (please have an account book from day 0 of the/any business).

What is the worst that could happen if you bought 2? You will definitely sell one. If the business doesnt work? Importantly, you will know you did your best. Saw a crack and gave it a shot.

#This is an opportunity I myself would have jumped at and partnered with someone at home. They will sell like c-r-a-z-y here. Unfortunately I've been burnt too many times by my people.

**Interview between you and a journalist:
Question: Have you always been interested in selling artefacts, sir/ma?

You: no, not at all.

Question: So how did it happen?

You: It was a chance occurrence. Pure luck. I was just browsing through Nairaland one day when I happened to see a thread by travelwaka. And I started the business in bits (of course, you woulda forgotten ME who gave this advice by then). After some time, I started diversifying gradually.

Question: Really?!

You: Yes. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Question: And you have become a multimillionaire 3 times over! W-h-oa!

You: God is great.

Question: what will be your advise to people who want to be entrepreneurs or very poor at the moment?

You: I will say to them, do not despise the day of little beginnings and think after the box. Also, very important pray always.

Journalist: Thank you sir/ma.

You: Thank you too.

One day, the above conversation could be you or anyone, man or woman, reading this today.

Go on, seize the day!

OMGoodness!! ���� Y-o-u are awesome.
And one of the most maddening things is because you are intelligent, smart or what they call "strong", they you are "obirin bi okunrin" i.e a woman like a man. Hell no! I am not a woman like a man. "Strongness", smartness etc isnt the franchise of any gender. I am a w-o-m-a-n and despite all the challenges, I am very happy and very proud to be one. Wouldn't swap it for 10 million pounds.

NiCurious:
Beyond just plain ENJOYING playing football with the guys?

[assuming that tomboys = girls who like to dress boyishly and play "boy" games with the boys]

Another reason you might find a girl acting tomboyish, is when she perceives that only males are respected and compensated for their contributions. She knows how people tend to be blinded by stereotypes, and prescribe for other people how they "should" behave, irrespective of their talents and preferences. If by birth she is "supposed to" sit on the sidelines, wear pink dresses and play with dolls, and follow after boys--in spite of the fact that she has much of value to contribute and which would be valued if she were male--she might reject a feminine appearance to make others take notice of herself for herself, to be heard, and fully express herself and her gifts, and be herself.

A tomboy can be a strong individual reacting to social norms that are too narrow and short-sighted. She is finding another way to be herself, when the first path is closed to her.

Teehaha I like you. You seem to be one of those who know iya Osho more than Osho. You have convinced yourself than you know my thoughts more than I do. You imply that I implied so and so. No, that was not what I implied.
But first, this is the definition of "imply" with example: Impu indicate the truth or existence of (something) by suggestion rather than explicit reference.
"salesmen who use jargon to imply superior knowledge"
See, it does not mean it is true that the salesmen have superior knowledge even if they "implied" same.

Secondly, with permission of 3 of the 5 individuals concerned, I will tell you what I meant by using "mostly". I did not want to be explicit initially because the 5 individuals had confided in me.

3 gays and 2 lesbians. 2 are friends of mine, 2 are colleagues and 1 of them was my student. Each and everyone of them is still undergoing therapy and being used in on-going experments to see if it is possible for them to alter their sexuality. Each one of them claims that he/she "became gays and lesbians" because they were sexually abused multiple times by people of their gender when they were in foster homes.

Sadly, in those days, enough due diligence weren't carried out before babies and toddlers were placed with foster parents. (Sadly, I personally, still believe that enough due diligence isnt being done, but that is story for another day.)

So, once again, quit putting words in my mouth that I did not say. Also quit attempting to get into my head, you can not. And finally, tomboyishness and LGBTs should Not be discussed in the same breath. They are not the same at all. At all.



Kayceenaz:

By using "mostly," you imply there are other factors besides "being born that way" which could trigger a transgender switch. That is where tomness and external influences such as sexual abuse, peer orientation, emotional heartbreak, misogyny/misandry, and so on, come in. Although not every tomboy/tomgirl turns a transgender (a point I have reiterated and you've misunderstood, too), my contention is the probability is high due to the growing comfort associated with assuming behaviours of the opposite gender. Such could (not must) lead to the transgender decision, especially when the resources to effect it are reachable.

Clearly, my position gives room for tomboy/tomgirls to significantly quit the personality as time passes, and advises the "shedding off" can be made earlier for harmony with the self. The fact tomness can be outgrown suggests it doesn't constitute the person's essence, making it extrinsic rather than intrinsic.

No. Please don't put words in my mouth. The ONLY reason I use "mostly" is because
1. I am not a scientist.
2. I am not transgender and unlike most people I don't presume "to know Ọṣọ's (colloquially, Osho) mother more than Ọṣọ himself".
3. I can tell you one thing for free, though, and authoritatively, Tomboyishness isn't caused by "sexual abuse, peer orientation, emotional heartbreak, misogyny/misandry".

Thank you.

Goodness gracious!!

Xclusiveme:
This is a very lnteresting topic. Let me help by clarifying things here.
When a child is been born, a gender is assigned to him/her due to the physical characteristics. Being a man or a woman isn't about your physical structure. It's how you think and behave. Tomboy/girl is just an incomplete transformation to being who they want to be. They don't have the will power or strong mind to tell the world that they don't literally fit in their bodies cos of the society. They are not coached enough about genderism. So as they are growing up, they are stuck with who they are from birth and not who they want to be. That's why you see tomboy and Tom girl everywhere. But sometimes due to a long term in their lives, their body and mind adjust. Either caused by the hormones or gender transparency. So tomboy is an efficacy to trans boy. Meaning incomplete transformation. With surgery and hormonal implants it's a full transformation
Family / Re: Why Turning A Tomboy Or Tomgirl Is Self-Conflicting by Arobake: 11:51pm On Oct 08, 2019
What she said is true. Even the last paragraph corroborates your initial assertion.
What we are saying, essentially, is that Tomboy and its vice versa have no place in this write up - at all.

Lesbians and Gays are mostly born that way not because of the people around them; And Tomboy isnt a catalyst to becoming gay at all. At all.

Mostly, Tomboys start shedding their boyishness when they start "noticing" boys. We evolve into girlfriends, wives and mothers (and grandmothers!). It's also scientifically proven that we keep one or two of our childhood boyish interests. I believe that. As even now in my (very) late 50s, I still love (car) speeding and soccer (my blood is Blue!)

Yours is a common misconception - grouping tomboys with all types of trans. But it NOT the same thing at all.

Thank you.

Kayceenaz:

If you re-read the concluding paragraph, you would discover I never asserted there is a necessary link between tomboys/tomgirls and transgenders. My point was such behavioural tendencies tend to lead to a decision to drastically alter one's gender. The high possibility of some transgenders today once being tomboys/tomgirls underscores the need to reconsider appropriateness of leaning towards such a personality. If you don't wanna get burnt, avoid moving close to the fire.

Also, I beg to differ on "tomness" being solely physical and not psychological. Exihibition of behaviours opposed to one's gender is the product of a belief system, a mental evaluation favourable to ways of life of an opposite sex. That goes on to pattern one's physical actions after it. In psychology, the term "Psychosomatic relationship'' sheds light on this truism.
