It's a whodunit, conspiracy show about a murder in a South Sea Islander community. Pretty good. I'm liking how they build the characters. And each character is kind of familiar.

People are wondering why on earth someone would go to a shithole like India. I'm thinking it's because they:
a) were scammed by locals (tr4fficker network)
b) are a village person that doesn't believe it's a toilet
c) are a criminal
d) are fooled by outsourcing

I don't know what it's going to take to drive home the message that certain countries are just evil places and no one should ever go there. But government needs to figure it out.

Racism is a profound mental illness.

Imagine a man (if such a person can be called that) investing time, energy, and even money into pushing this lie about desirability. The reality is that the only foreigners that consistently have trouble getting partners in different countries are east and south Asian males. Almost everyone else does just fine.

Travel / From February 1, 2023 Nigeria-trained Teachers Can Qualify To Teach In The UK by Cousin9999: 12:46pm On Dec 19, 2022
Information here

English teacher training leads to a professional teaching qualification called qualified teacher status (QTS).

If you’re a qualified teacher from outside the UK, you can work as a teacher in England for up to 4 years without QTS.

After that, QTS is a legal requirement to teach in many English schools, and considered desirable for teachers in the majority of schools in England.

From 1 February 2023, teachers who qualified in the following 9 countries will also be able to apply to TRA for QTS:

Hong Kong
South Africa
This change is part of the launch of a new service, apply for QTS in England. From 1 February 2023, the way we award QTS will change.

Teachers from all eligible countries will have to show they meet a consistent set of criteria for the award of QTS. Over time, this route will be opened to qualified teachers from every country outside the UK.

Working as a teacher while you undergo assessment only QTS
You can work as a teacher in England and earn a salary while you’re assessed for QTS.

The 4-year rule means you can find a teaching job and apply to a teacher training provider offering assessment only QTS in the region of England where you work. Your employing school can support you with this.

When you apply for assessment only QTS you’ll:
have to pay a fee
not have to undergo any further training
not have to visit the UK

International qualifications
If your qualifications come from a non-UK institution, your assessment only teacher training provider may want to see a ‘statement of comparability’ showing how they compare to UK qualifications.

You can call us on 0800 389 2500 for:

guidance on the UK equivalents of your qualifications
a free statement of comparability from UK ENIC once you’ve submitted your application, if your provider asks for this
Your teaching experience must:

consist of time spent teaching (as opposed to other responsibilities in a school)
have taken place in 2 separate schools (not 2 classes within the same school or 2 school sites within the same organisation)
demonstrate you’ve taught young people from a range of different backgrounds
demonstrate you’re familiar with different approaches to teaching, learning and school management

Your teaching experience can have been:

gained in any type of school, for example, international schools, schools teaching the International Baccalaureate, and state-maintained schools outside the UK
spent teaching a non-English curriculum (though you may need to show you have knowledge of the subjects taught in the English curriculum)
divided between 2 school settings as long as you have 2 years’ teaching experience in total
British international school organisations
British international schools provide suitable experience for teachers wishing to apply for assessment only QTS. However, it is not a requirement to gain your experience at a British international school. Reputable British international school organisations include:

the Association of British School Overseas (AoBSO)
the Council of British International Schools (COBIS)
the Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA)
British Schools in the Middle East (BSME)
the Association of International Schools in Africa (AISA)

Assessment only costs
Fees range from about £1,500 to £4,000, but vary between providers and may be substantially more if you’re outside the UK. Check with individual providers for more details.
Travel / Ottawa Reveals Plan To Welcome *500,000 Immigrants A Year* By 2025 by Cousin9999: 9:35pm On Nov 02, 2022
OTTAWA - The federal Liberal government has unveiled plans for a massive increase in the number of immigrants entering Canada, with a goal of seeing 500,000 people arrive each year by 2025 as it seeks to address a critical labour shortage across the country.
While the plan was largely welcomed by industry groups and others, there are questions about whether it goes far enough - and whether it is even achievable, given a large backlog of applications at Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.

Immigration Minister Sean Fraser revealed the new plan on Tuesday. It puts a heavy emphasis on admitting more permanent residents with needed work skills and experience, alongside more-modest targets for family members and refugees.

“Make no mistake. This is a massive increase in economic migration to Canada,” Fraser told The Canadian Press. “We have not seen such a focus on economic migration as we've seen in this immigration levels plan.”

The new plan envisions a flood of new arrivals that will see 465,000 people come in from outside the country in 2023, rising to 500,000 in 2025. By comparison, the immigration department says 405,000 permanent residents were admitted last year.

Most of those new arrivals will be what are known as economic immigrants, who will be expected to fill some of the roughly one million jobs that are currently sitting empty across various sectors of the economy.

“There were a million jobs available in the Canadian economy at a time when immigration already accounts for nearly all of our labor force growth,” Fraser said. “We cannot maximize our economic potential if we don't embrace immigration.”

The minister also underscored the long-term stakes as Canada's labour force continues to age, with fewer workers supporting not only those who have already retired but also vital public services such as schools and hospitals.

While the influx could put even more pressure on already scarce affordable housing in many parts of the country, Fraser suggested the new workers could actually enable the construction of more homes by addressing a shortage of tradespeople.

He added that the new plan will also try to ensure immigrants are able to easily transition into local communities by directing them to areas that already have capacity for newcomers, and with an increase in federal support and settlement services.

While most of the planned growth in immigration over the next three years will be focused on bolstering the economy, the new plan also calls for a small increase in the number of family members who will be admitted into Canada.

It also projects an overall decrease in the number of refugees, from a high of 76,000 in 2023 to fewer than 73,000 in 2025, which Fraser attributed to the government's plan to finish resettling 40,000 Afghan refugees next year.

“In each of the last two years, we have resettled more than one-third of the total number of refugees who were settled globally,” he added. “And each of the last three years, we have resettled more refugees than any other country in the world.”

Despite the decrease, a representative for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees welcomed the government's continued support for accepting asylum seekers fleeing war and other threats.

“The United Nations Refugee Agency welcomes Canada's continued commitment to refugee resettlement as part of its overall immigration growth plan,” UNHCR Representative in Canada Rema Jamous Imseis said in a statement.

“Refugees need life-saving solutions like resettlement, and they also make important contributions to Canada's economy and the fabric of our communities.”

The response from Canadian industry was more mixed, with the Business Council of Canada arguing the government's plan didn't go far enough in addressing the country's unprecedented labour shortage.

“The Business Council of Canada welcomes the federal government's plan to increase the number of new permanent residents settling in Canada over the next three years,” Business Council CEO and president Goldy Hyder said in a statement.

“But with employers across the country unable to fill nearly one million job openings, bolder targets for economic-class admissions are required to tackle ongoing skill and labour shortages.”

Conservative immigration critic Tom Kmiec also welcomed the plan to dramatically increase the number of new arrivals in Canada, but questioned whether the government would actually be able to meet its own targets.

Kmiec noted officials within the immigration department have 2.6 million applications sitting on their desks waiting to be processed. While around 1.6 million are requests for temporary residence, about 615,000 are from people seeking permanent residence.

“Now they're talking about trying to bring in a half a million immigrants,” Kmiec said. “I just don't believe them that they're going to be able to do it. And that's completely unfair for people who are applying and hoping for a reasonable timeline to get a yes or no.”

Fraser defended the government's targets, saying he was confident that recent investments and a hiring spree in the department, along with changes to how applications are being processed, would address the issue and ensure that people arrive in a timely manner.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Nov. 1, 2022.

1. Genetics play a major role in how you look. Some guys can't get big or toned without steroids.

2. Do not use steroids. They do terrible things to your body.

3. If you just want size, you can lift weights and eat more. Do the main compound lifts: squat, deadlift, benchpress, and etc. But again, this may not give you the results you want because of genetics. It could also take a good 5 years to get the body you want.

4. There's plenty of videos, guides, meal plans, and workout plans online that work. Don't do too much too soon or you could injure yourself. Listen to your body.

5. It could be fairly expensive because you usually have to eat a certain way to pack on size, e.g. lots of protein and carbs.

Make sure you thoroughly investigate that company. It's risky, but potentially a good opportunity.

If you go, be careful and protect yourself. People call them xenophobic, but they're just racist.

In all, there are about 110,000 people in Sweden from the African continent. Besides Somalia, they also come from Ethiopia, Eritrea, Morocco, Egypt, Gambia, and Nigeria. Ethiopians make up the largest group. There are about 18,000 ethnic Ethiopians in Sweden. There are about 5,000 Gambians and a near equal number of Nigerians.

In 2016, close to 1.2 million people in Canada reported being Black.
In 20 years, the Black population has doubled in size, going from 573,860 persons in 1996 to 1,198,540 persons in 2016.
The Black population now accounts for 3.5% of Canada's total population and 15.6% of the population defined as a visible minority.

The hateful responses in this thread are from oyinbos that make it a point to devote time, energy, and money to injecting our discussions and spaces with their racist fantasies. There are no black people sitting around anywhere fixated on what oyinbos are doing, thinking, and discussing, nor do we devote time, energy, and money to injecting racism into their discussions.

Ask yourself, is this industry and hobby of racist propaganda the action of a group of people who are capable, secure, attractive, smart, charming, or any other quality that would make someone worth anything?

Oyinbos are pathetic, hideous losers. They have only managed to achieve anything through theft and extreme oppression, whether other races or their own. They have likely held all of human civilization back by millennia because they want to sabotage others and maintain their pathetic existence and false sense of achievement.

One thing i can't forget about mud houses is the natural cool temperature as if it has a coolant embedded somewhere inside, no matter how hot the weather is.

"High density materials such as concrete, brick, tiles, earth and water require a lot of heat to increase in temperature. They also lose heat slowly and are referred to as having high thermal mass."

No man should be seen being this nice to any Nigerian girl. It's foolishness! No Nigerian girl can cross a gutter for you no matter how she loves you. These "people" are not created to be loved or cared for.

Any man seen being this foolish should be treated as a criminal in a sane environment.
