Kindly help a learner

I don't think you can do anything at this point cos appointment has been scheduled already. Check your portal though.

PRICE RANGES FROM 1500 to 2k usd for economy, places like houston are slightly cheaper. are travel agents really cheaper?. dont really like using them, cos of the inflexibility stories, if perhaps there is need for date change

Tickets have conditions. The last ticket we got from an agent was 1,100 direct flight. This ticket accepts date change the only snag it is non refundable. I no mind cos e de cheap. You can still buy direct from airlines it doesn't matter.

Not so high if you book early or go through a reliable agent.
Education / Re: The Government Didn't Ban History In Schools by flourishing247: 5:48pm On Jul 28
When I read online that the federal government banned the teaching of History in schools because it didn't want Igbos to read about the Nigerian Civil War, I believed it hook, line and sinker, even though I am a northerner.

I little bit of research would have made me realized the truth, but I was ignorant. I believed what other people said without finding out if they were right or wrong.

A school I was recently employed to teach Computer Studies wrote NECO exam, and the subject was History. I felt so stupid when I saw the question paper. If the government banned history, why is NECO, a government examination body allowing people to write History?

What I noticed over the years is that students don't like history because the subject is bulky. There are lots of dates and events to cram in history, and most students don't want to stress their brains.

I asked around today, and I realized that even though my school doesn't offer History as a subject, other schools do. Students from other schools that didn't have a NECO center, registered to write the exam in mine.

From the look of things, it is up to schools to decide if they want to offer history as a subject or not. This has got me thinking. What other lies have I been believing?

It was scrapped years ago. It was brought back recently.

Business / Re: Are You An Employer? New Scam Discovery by flourishing247: 10:14pm On May 09

To combat this type of theft, you must have a fully manned CCTV following every suspicious movement in your Bar.

How many businesses monitor CCTV? They only go back to check it when something happens.


Business / Re: Are You An Employer? New Scam Discovery by flourishing247: 9:47pm On May 09
I help out in a hospitality business. For weeks I have noticed a sharp decline in profits. Despite the fact that patronage has increased noticeably. Projected profits not met despite the increase in consumption.

Wetin dey happen. I investigated every department everything dey go well. This week I faced the bar and restaurant. Told the waiters and barmen to write everything sold. Even to bottled water. I didn't tell them why I just explained that I needed to know how every drink is being consumed so that my suppliers will increase the quantity they bring.

I collated the sales and instead of profit I lost over 50k. Hehehe thief no dey tiff tiff. Entered statement of account from the bar accounts and saw it was balanced with the figure projected. Nice one. Called the staffs. Who owe una....no one. No problem. Collected the pos receipts and boom, caught the thief. You see what she did was she prints a receipt twice. Let's say you bought stuffs worth 20k. She prints it twice. And keeps the merchant copy for two. when someone else pays she tells them POS is not available and then provides an account number. Once the amount is up to 20k she takes that her copy and drops it with the accountant. How she edits it I'll never know. I asked her to go home as if nothing happened. Today she has been picked up. We are still collating her theft. As at one hour ago E don reach 500k. So disappointed.

Make una dey careful out there guys. Some people aim na to destroy you.

Look deeper there's more. They bring in their drinks and sell it before they sell yours. They usually work as a team and your supplier might be the one supplying them too.

CBP: How long are you here?
Me: 5 weeks , including the 10 days of quarantine
CBP: What are your plans?
Me: first I will visit Bleep , and then plan my visit to yyy and zzz

She was asked how long she will be staying, she said 5 weeks when she’s gonna be here for much longer. What her plans were: she said visit, when indeed she was here to give birth. But what do I know?

I’m not sure if people know that their interactions with CBP officials are always noted and could come up in their subsequent renewals.

They don't know na. LOL. I always laugh when people try to act smart. I do not know what they think the officers are typing when one is answering questions. Grocery list Everything you say is noted. That's why when some go for renewals their interview is very fast. They pull up your records and check for red flags.

Thanks for your response, we'll reduce to 3weeks if that'll make getting the visa easier, only wanted to use the opportunity to visit some friends and family in some other states, we're being sponsored by my aunt.

Sponsored by aunt or she's writing the Invitation letter?
If she is sponsoring your trip then i think you should wait until you can sponsor your family vacation. Do not jeopardize your future applications. Just hold in for now. Please.

After all he started during this Covid19 ish..For him to always show up, you don't know his challenge don't just conclude.
My elder brother had this same sort of friend back then, always coming to chill with is and all that but upon all, there wasn't a complain. He will sleep over, eat , even demand more et al. Our upbringing, we don't really care everyone is welcomed.
That same friend now is an SSA to the SP.

SSA? Did he appreciate you guys? The one we helped is even in house of rep, dude just zoned everyone out.
Crime / Re: Member Of A 5-Man Gang Who Raped A Girl Confesses, Seeks Forgiveness Years After by flourishing247: 4:47pm On Mar 20
I'm sorry she was raped. No woman deserves to have her life ruined like that. All rapists deserve the worst possible punishment in this world. But my question is this; what was she doing sleeping in a classroom by 2am? There's definitely more to that story.

As for the guy that's seeking for forgiveness, if he's serious about being remorseful, he should report himself to the nearest police station, confess his actions and do the time.
All rapists whether repentant or not deserve to be behind bars.

If you read her book then you'd understand why.

Hello friends,
Is it possible to use my generated D160 reference number to book for USA visa interview appointment then come back to complete and submit the form? This is to ensure that my travel date is not earlier than the available interview appointment date. Please help.

Nope. You have to submit the form before your interview. You will get a confirmation slip which you will take to the embassy.

I had my interview on Tuesday and I was refused visa ,I think it was entirely my fault as I answered all the questions with monosyllabic responses … I didn’t try to convince the vo… he asked what I do and I said ‘video editor ‘ he asked my purpose for visit and I said vacation lmao… could I have done better? Yes ofcos as I have travelled to many countries including Uk and Canada before.. all I wanted to do was spend 2 weeks vacation in us since I had never been there before. I’m married with a 4 year old kid but hubby was going to allow me go for vacation alone to blow off some steam after working so hard. I was denied based on the fact that i didn’t have strong ties which is ridiculous, would I leave my 4 year old kid behind and abscond? I intend to reapply and even if I get denied again, it won’t be because I didn’t do my best cos I knew I could have done better… the feeling of inadequacy makes me so sad and hunts me

Awww. Don't feel bad, count it as an experience. Please avoid the embassy for now. They might feel you are desperate. Give it at least one year.

It is totally wrong for him to marry his wifes sister, it is an abomination. The man deserves a sound slapp to bring him back to reality. He is wicked and has betrayed his wife.

No it is not an abomination especially in igbo culture. It is a matter of choice and it has to be agreed on by the two families.
