Celebrities / 4 ‘unnecessary’ Things Nigerian Celebrities Should Stop Doing On Social Media by itseedris(m): 7:18pm On Oct 06, 2016
Celebrities are always in the eyes of the storm! The things they do are not hidden especially in today’s social media world. Immediately something happens to them, they are trending on twitter and before the flip of a finger, the story has gone viral. Recently, Kim Kardashian West was robbed in her home in Paris by five men and they made away with valuables.
Although we sympathize with her, we know Kim’s ‘social media extravagance’ where shares picture of her million dollar jewelry. From reports, the robbers may have gotten information from her different social media accounts. Back home in Nigeria, celebrities are gradually going the same way as they do some things that will bring unnecessary attention.

Unknown to them, the social media space is unregulated. Different people with ulterior motives are on social media. Hence, you should be careful what you share on social media to avoid being a Kim Kardashian. Jumia Travel gathers 5 things you need to stop doing on social media as a celebrity.

4 ‘Unnecessary’ Things Nigerian Celebrities Should Stop Doing on Social Media

Be careful with sharing your location

This is called geotagging. That is sharing where you are on social media. Most times, when you share a post on social media, you will be requested to add your current location. Better still, you can remove location information from photos.

Keep valuables off social media

This is the norm among celebrities. They share and show off valuables like bags, shoes, and piles of money as well as a fleet of cars. This also includes expensive jewelry. It is advisable to keep these valuables off social media.

Don’t advertise you are leaving town

If you want to know if your favourite celebrities are in the country or not, you should check their social media accounts. Hence, sharing your travel plans on social media can leave your home unprotected. To stay safe, stop sharing your itinerant on social media whether within Lagos or any other parts of the world.

private things should be private

As a celebrity, it is difficult to keep your personal life private. Despite this, you should be prudent with the things you share. Private pictures, your relationships, and personal life should be off social media. People will be interested but it will bring unwanted spotlight.

TV/Movies / Vampire Diaries’ Chris Wood Is Coming To Supergirl Season 2 by itseedris(m): 9:02am On Jul 21, 2016
Okay guys, it's not over yet, we've been asking "Who would you like to see in the second season of Super gilr? With the show’s production being moved from Los Angeles, California to Vancouver, Canada, the vast majority of these questions focused around which members of the cast (chiefly, Calista Flockhart) would possibly be affected, see their roles reduced, or be lost in the transition entirely.

Thus far, all signs seem to indicate that certain roles (like that of Flockhart’s Cat Grant) might be reduced as a result of the move, while others are being added left and right in order to fill in the gaps. Teen Wolf’s Tyler Hoechlin was the first to join to the second season’s cast as none other than the Man of Steel himself, and was quickly followed thereafter by Cougar Town‘s Ian Gomez (as hard-hitting journalist Snapper Carr), Floriana Lima (as Special Crimes Unit captain Maggie Sawyer), and Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, as the P.O.T.U.S.

Now, TV Line is reporting the latest Supergirl casting, which comes in the form of CW regular Chris Wood. Wood, who recently secured a regular role in the second season of PBS’ Civil War drama Mercy Street, will be joining the cast in a series regular role has yet to be revealed – though it is reported to be “a surprise DC Comics character.” Wood’s character will debut early on in Supergirl season 2.

Wood’s casting in Supergirl marks the fourth series that the young actor has been cast in for The CW in the past few years alone. After debuting on the network in The Carrie Diaries as Adam Weaver, a love interest to Anna Sophia Robb’s young Carrie Bradshaw who received a six-episode arc before the show’s cancellation in 2014, Wood was then cast as Kai Parker in The Vampire Diaries. Most recently, he co-starred as Jake in the epidemic drama Containment, which was similarly cancelled after a brief run on the network.

Do you want to boost the traffic of your website while increasing sales? Well, this complete SEO guide will provide you with strong understanding of what SEO means and why it is valuable.

What is SEO?

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) refers to the process of improving visibility of a website on unpaid search engine result.

Why should you care about SEO?

If you are already running a business website, there is no doubt that you know how important it is for a website to be displayed high on the search engine results.

When your website is ranked high on search results, you will definitely get more traffic which will lead to more sales. With a lot of competition nowadays, you will need to customize your site with SEO in such a way that it will rank higher in the search results.

Google AdWords keyword planner Tool (adwords.google.com/keywordplanner) will help you discover keywords that are related to your specific topic by automatically generating suggestions based on the niche of your website.

Webmasters / How To Choose The Perfect Wordpress Theme For Your Website by itseedris(m): 6:53am On Jun 17, 2016
This is because each and every theme looks better than the other. How will you choose the perfect theme? In this guide, I have shared specific things to consider when choosing the perfect WordPress theme for your website:

Strive for Simplicity

Lots of WordPress themes come with flashy animations and complex layouts. Sometimes you can require such things but in most cases you will not require. You should consider looking for a theme that has a layout that supports your business goal. Make sure that the design layout is good but does not compromise on simplicity and usability. The main reason why you should choose a simple design layout is the fact that you will help your audience find information quickly and this will help you achieve your specific goals at the same time. If a specific theme looks great but doesn’t help your users find information around your website, then it’s not a good theme at all.

Responsive is not an option

Regardless of the demographic and topics of your website, you should select a responsive and mobile friendly theme. The best way to test a theme is to copy and paste the URL of your preferred theme in Mobile friendly test page in Google. (https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/)

Browser compatibility

Your target users might be using different browsers. You should always remember that your preferred theme might look prefect on your browser but might be broken in other browsers. In this case, you should consider running some basic tests in order to confirm that the theme you have chosen is prefect on different browsers such as Chrome, Internet explorer, Google, Safari, Firefox etc.

SEO friendliness

Themes play a huge role in the SEO friendliness. Good looking themes can still generate poor codes which can affect the performance of your website on search engines. In this case, you should confirm by checking the features of the WordPress theme to confirm that it has already been optimized for SEO.

TV/Movies / 23 Best Movies On Netflix You Haven’t Yet Seen by itseedris(m): 12:01pm On May 02, 2016
You think you have watched all the best movies on Netflix? No you're wrong, below are best movies on Netflix you haven't seen curated by agoodmovietowatch, take your time and read to the end you're going to love this!

23 Best Movies On Netflix You Haven’t Yet Seen

23. Spy Game (2001)

Robert Redford and Brad Pitt make quite the ensemble in this edgy game of espionage. With performances as strong as their jawlines, this action packed rescue mission will keep you in suspense! Be sure to keep up with all the witty banter and interesting plot twists shifting between flashbacks and present day scenarios. Keep in mind that this isn’t your average spy movie, with a more realistic approach and a character driven storyline, most of the flash happens cinematically.

22. What Maisie Knew (2012)

A rock singer (played by Julianne Moore) and an art dealer (Steve Coogan) start a battle for the custody of their daughter, Maisie, mainly to spite each other. When one of them marries, the other rushes a marriage as well. What Maisie Knew is all that and more from the perspective of the little child, Maisie. Written by two writers, directed by two directors, and sporting an excellent cast, you should not be surprised to learn that What Masie Knew perfectly portrays its complex and sad subject matter, giving an honest, bitter portrayal of dysfunctional families.

21. People Places Things (2015)

«When comedians get a bit older they do a movie with “emotions” in it. Here’s mine.» Flight of the Conchords’ Jemaine Clement on Twitter. People Places Things is exactly that, a funny yet heartfelt comedy. Will Henry, A New York City graphic novelist walks on his girlfriend with whom he has twins cheating on him on the twin’s birthday party. A year later, Will is struggling to define his new life as a single parent while still getting over his breakup. Smart, honest, and charmingly led by Jemaine Clement, this film will strike you in its simplicity.

20. Dope (2015)

At the same time a fun, crazy, and meaningful movie about Malcom and his friends, high school teenagers and proud geeks who suddenly find themselves immersed in the underground LA drug scene. It’s a 2015 Superbad meets Boyz in the Hood. But in its essence it mostly resembles another beautiful film, Juno, in the way it evolves around a character played perfectly who you get to know, agree and disagree with, and ultimately learn from and relate to. Above all it’s an outright enjoyable film, a smart one too, with a great soundtrack to boot.

19. We Need to Talk About Kevin (2012)

Adapted from the Lionel Shriver novel of the same name, We Need to Talk About Kevin is the story of a mother (Tilda Swinton) that never quite bonds with her child, but not by her choice. The son grows up to do a heinous act that begs the question: nature or nurture? This film is an uncompromising view on the development of an unloved child. Silent pain gets voice. Feelings are shown by actions not emotions in an authentic, comprehensible and aesthetic manner. Great work.

18. The World’s Fastest Indian (2005)

You know Anthony Hopkins as the evil Hannibal Lecter, but in this film he gives a warm and heartfelt performance portraying real life New Zealand motorcycle legend Burt Munro who set a land speed record in 1967 on a hand-built 1920 Indian. It’s a story of never giving up on your dream even in the face of ridicule and opposition. Hopkins’ performance turns what could have been just another schmaltzy formulaic story line into true gold. You’ll be cheering for Burt/Anthony by the end!

17. God Bless America (2011)

Good Bless America is a deeply ironic and violent action comedy from folk legend Bobcat Goldthwait. In a turn of events sure to ring true to many viewers, the protagonist, Frank Murdoch (Joel Murray), after being informed of his terminal brain cancer, sets out on a killing spree out of sheer distaste for the vile, rude, and materialistic culture that surrounds him. Large swaths of the movie are pure rage fantasy, a cathartic blend of violence and humor as the cretinous bogeymen of the modern era are gleefully dispatched. Obviously not a fantastic date movie, but perhaps a good one for a bad mood.

16. Liberal Arts (2012)

Funny and relatable, this film recognizes the struggles of both an emotionally lacking college graduate and those of his newfound liberal arts lady. A perfect balance of passion and sensibility also adds up to make it utterly engaging. Elizabeth Olsen delivers a great performance, and as for the man of the movie, Josh Randor, who wrote, directed and starred in this – let’s just say you’ll see more to him than Ted Mosby. A heartfelt effort and above all a very enjoyable film.

15. Atonement (2007)

Atonement is a tribute to cinematography, an epic film that might just remind you why you fell in love with movies to begin with. A young girl and aspiring writer has a crush on the man her older sister loves, so the young sister indulges her imagination to accuse the man of a crime he didn’t commit. The two are separated and the latter is then sent away to prison and after joins the army. As the young girl grows up and realizes the true consequences of her actions, what can she do, what can anyone do, to remedy such a wrong? Winner of two Golden Globes and nominated to 6 Academy Awards.

14. The Grand Seduction (2013)

The Grand Seduction, a remake of 2003 French-Canadian film La Grande Séduction (2003), is a lighthearted comedy about the residents of the small fishing village of Tickle Head, Newfoudland attempting to convince a young doctor to become its long-term caregiver in order to secure a contract for a new petrochemical facility. Desperate to guide the town out of its impoverished conditions and lack of employment opportunities, the citizens band together to pull ever bit out of deceit and chicanery out of their hats (in often laugh-out-loud fashion) in order to sway the young doctor Paul (Taylor Kitsch) into believing that Tickle Head is where he belongs. It’s a lighthearted and funny story, despite undeniably familiar shades of The Shipping News, Doc Hollywood and Funny Farm. Brendan Gleeson is particularly good as the new mayor of town and Paul’s head “seducer”. He gives the film that extra bit of humanity and wry humor that lifts it above the familiar plot points and into “notable recommendation” territory.

13. Mr. Nobody (2009)

Based on a beautiful premise, sprinkled with artistic vision, it is an intelligent man’s sit back and relax movie. The film explores the life and times of Nemo Nobody, the last mortal man on earth, as he reflects on important choices he took. Each of these choices are presented as branching pathways of what could have been, utilizing innovative non-linear cinematography. In addition to the film’s winning structure, its soundtrack is considered a masterpiece, perfectly fitting the plot via looping and trilling melodies. The film garnered 6 Margaritte awards, and has slowly been developing into an indie cult classic.

12. The Imposter (2012)

The impossibly true story of a mysterious Frenchman that claims to be the 16 year old son of a family from Texas that went missing three years prior. This movie is shot so well with a story so unbelievable that I had to look it up to believe that it was a real documentary instead of a fiction film played as true. Expect twists and turns at every corner, with brilliant storytelling from the real life people that lived through the whole thing. If Christopher Nolan created a 48 hour story, it would pale in comparison to this film.

11. How to Change the World (2015)

How to Change the World is an insightful and candid documentary about the formation of Greenpeace in 1971 by a small group of environmentalists and activists in Vancouver, British Columbia. Beginning with their attempt to disrupt U.S. nuclear testing in Amchitka, Alaska, the film follows their subsequent efforts to thwart commercial whaling in the Pacific, their anti-sealing campaign in Newfoundland, and their ongoing efforts to defend the natural world against what they perceive as excessive human intervention and abuse. How to Change the World is as much a poignant tale of inspired activism as it is an interesting study of the organization’s early tribulations: idealism vs. anarchy, social movement vs. organizational structure (or lack thereof) and leadership vs. disunity. The voice of co-founder Robert Hunter (de facto leader of Greenpeace from inception) is heard posthumously throughout via narrator Barry Pepper, and it adds an impassioned air of gravitas to the film, detailing the many complexities Greenpeace experienced over the course of its early years of growth and development. A compelling and educational viewing experience.

10. Headhunters (2012)

A nasty little chase film with dark humor and balls to the walls action sequences. It is slightly insane, has some brutal fights in it and is completely beyond belief. The thing that keeps it going is its sheer pace; often circumstances shift so quickly the whole film seems a little surreal, which is part of its charm. The only point at which the film does slow down is when it hits incredibly suspenseful moments, which are stretched to near infinity. As it’s from the continental tradition, expect all the raw colors, emotion and slightly off kilter characters reminiscent of a violent Lars Von Trier.

9. What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993)

“Moving” is definitely the best adjective to describe this movie, in which teenage Johnny Depp plays the part of Gilbert Grape, a young boy who feels stuck in a little town where nothing exciting ever happens. Gilbert has to carry the weight of his family, a morbidly obese mother and a mentally handicapped brother, both of who depend entirely on him and his two sisters. But one day a beautiful girl comes across his way, and shows him a whole new perspective in life. Anybody with a heart will appreciate this film’s effots to show the difficulties that some families with disabled members have to face. The biggest highlight of this movie is Leo DiCaprios’s performance of Arnie, an 18 year-old boy with cerebral palsy. He does it so brilliantly that he outshines Depp and Juliette Lewis, who are great too.

8. Beginners (2010)

An American romantic comedy, Beginners is told through a series of flashbacks telling the story of Oliver and his complicated and difficult relationship with his father. The film is gorgeously heartbreaking, demonstrating how hurtful we are to those we love, while showing the ties of mutual need that bind people. In the way it also takes on the process of finding one’s happiness, through the character’s eyes and his father’s, what that process has in common for both, and how one is inspired from the other. Beginners is lovely, funny, interesting, and above all very enjoyable.

7. Blackfish (2013)

A striking and revelatory documentary focused on captive Killer Whales and their treatment and behavior within SeaWorld and other theme parks around the world. At the center of the story is Tilikum, a bull orca whale that has been responsible for the death of three individuals, and the legal and ethical challenges that have arisen from apparent cover-ups by officials. What happened to Tilikum to make him adopt such behavior, and more simply, what are Killer Whales? First-hand accounts by former whale trainers and experts deliver fascinating truths about Tilikum and the species as whole, with particular attention on their remarkable intelligence and advanced social behaviors. Blackfish will undoubtedly change your perspective on whale captivity indefinitely. It’s certainly not to be missed by anyone who appreciates top-notch documentary film-making as honest historical record.

6. Fruitvale Station (2013)

The true story of Oscar Grant III, a 22-year-old black man on the last day of 2008, where his will to change is challenged by his past, surroundings, and the police. You’ve probably read and heard a lot about young black men’s sad recent encounters with the police, and for this reason you might feel like skipping this film. Don’t.

Produced by Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker, it is so compassionate and powerfully told, that it surpasses the sadness of its subject matter to almost be a celebration of life. It is an extraordinary and important watch.

5. The Station Agent (2003)

The Station Agent is about loneliness, change and friendship. Sounds corny right? It’s not. The characters are developed, they have their own reasons for the choices they make and nothing feels forced, neither actions or conversations. It’s a small and wonderful movie about a little man that moves out of the city and his comfort zone when his only friend dies, moves to said friend’s old train station and sets his life there. From there on it follows his social interactions with a slew of people, the relationships he forms with them. Oh, and the little man? Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), who pulls off a great performance, albeit a quiet one.

4. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007)

Directed by celebrated artist-turned-fillmmaker Julian Schnabel, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly is the true story of French journalist and fashion editor Jean-Dominique Bauby (Mathieu Amalric), who suffered a devastating stroke at the age of 43. Almost completely paralyzed by what is termed “Locked-in Syndrome”, Bauby was left with only the operation of his left eye intact, leaving him forced to communicate via partner-assisted scanning (selection of each letter of the alphabet via blinking). Ultimately, Bauby employed this painstaking procedure to dictate his own memoir “Le Scaphandre et le Papillon”, which became a number one bestseller in Europe. The film alternates between Bauby’s interaction with his visitors and caretakers (including the dictation of his book) and his own dream-like fantasies and memories of his life prior to paralysis. With the title, Bauby uses the diving bell to represent his self-perceived state of isolation, akin to a deep-sea diver encased in an oxygenated chamber, and the corresponding butterfly to represent the freedom he enjoys as he often journeys quite magically through his own mind’s eye. It’s a somber yet engaging film full of heart and vision, featuring wonderful performances by the entire cast across the board.

3. Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father (2008)

You will not come out of this movie the same person you were going into it. Get ready to cry your eyes out, scream in anger, and rejoice that such a powerful love can exist in our world. DO NOT READ ANY SPOILERS OR SUMMARIES BEFORE VIEWING! This loving documentary about the father of a young boy is one of the best movies of this decade! We can’t recommend this film enough!

2. Beasts of No Nation (2015)

An instant classic, Beast of No Nation is a unique and uniquely-paced war drama which ranges in patterns from explosive visual storytelling to calm character studies. A child joins a rebel group consisting almost entirely of children and led by a charismatic leader credited as Commandant. As you get to witness the conflict through the child’s eyes, his own development and his commander’s, the film unfolds as an exploration of the never ending, pathetic state of war in Africa. From there it takes you to varying conclusions, most of which you will have trouble admitting you've reached.

As Commandant, Idris Elba is transfixing, proving once more that he is one of the best actors of our time. The whole cast of almost entirely non-actors, as well as the deeply authentic staging by True Detective and Sin Nombre director Cary Fukunaga, are both mesmerizing.

1. Short Term 12 (2013)

Short Term 12 is exactly like being injured in a part of your body where you didn’t think it was possible to get injured before. It will hurt but it will make you care.

Natural and understated by budget and by purpose, it is powered by perfect performances that will take you on an emotional roller coaster ride you will never forget. It is at times sweet, at times depressing and at times hilarious.

The thing is, without even taking into consideration its small budget or the importance of the issues it talks about – we would still consider Short Term 12 as one of the best movies of the past 20 years.

Music/Radio / 7 Ways To Be Fulfilled In Your Musical Career by itseedris(m): 7:08am On Apr 07, 2016
Many atimes we complain of not getting immense fulfilment in our chosen field or career whatsoever, blaming it on one reason or the other. It’s pertinent to know that anything that doesn’t bring fulfilment is not worth doing. Here in are 7 ways to be fulfilled in that musical career you so cherish. I decided to write this as many people seek this but seem not to find it. I do hope you enjoy this;

1. ESTABLISH YOUR PARTICULAR FIELD: This is often the first thing that must be done. You can’t sow beans and expect to harvest nuts though they are both legumes. The field of music is so wide and open for any sub-field you can ever think of. You must first decide what you want to do; singing, instrumentation, producing, mentorship, vocal coaching etc. This can be determined by where your interest lies in.

After you have established the context or particular field you want to venture into, next is to start with something. You may notice that you love singing or have passion for one instrument but don’t know how to sing like the songsters you’ve admired on TV or the professional instrumentalists you’ve watched or heard play, however, you have to start no matter how shitty it appears. Know that big things are started small.

Music is something that is very tasking and onerous. If you want to succeed musically, you must be ready to endure the pain of rehearsals, singing and vocal tutorials or practices. If it’s about learning a particular instrument, it can be very frustrating at the very beginning (novice stage) but you must not give up, keep rehearsing, keep singing even though you have one of the worst voice. Soon it’ll be the best on air. *smile* Keep trying out new things.

4. FIND A MUSICAL GROUP OR BAND TO JOIN: Music is something that is people geared, that is, it becomes very much interesting, exciting and revealing with the number of people involved. There are so much musical groups you could join for a start, it could be choir groups, acapella groups, musical bands, group of other instrumentalists and what have you. It does helps as you’ll get to meet other people in your field of music or instrument who have a wealth of experience more than you do and can put you through. It also helps you to discover new music cheats via gigs and mashing up…mmmmmm

5. GET A MENTOR IN YOUR FIELD: A mentor is not just anyone who does what you do but someone who you can be responsible to you, someone who want to see you be become better than he/she is in the musical field. A mentor could be your church’s musical director, choir cordinator, vocal coach , school music teacher, lecturers of music in higher institutions and what have you. The role of a mentor is that which Jesus played upon his disciples, he/she will give you reasons to move on, even in times when you feel like giving up. A mentor is someone You can easily access i.e close by. This is what differentiate a mentor from a role model. For those aiming to hit the highest notes and adlib like anything else, Kim Burrel can be your role model but you need a mentor.

There’s a Yoruba proverb that says that the coal pot that wants to eat stew must be ready to get its back grilled hot. LoL. I must confess to you, if you’ve not faced any form of disappointment from people, colleagues or friends who would never believe in your ability or what you do, then it’s not worth doing. You must no matter what not stop because of them, they really need to see you become that musical success they never believed you’ll ever become. Imagine a scenario where you are singing and zap the mike is collected from you, it shouldn’t stop you from singing the more. In one occasion, I could remember sometime in my life, I was trying to hit a chord on the keyboard and ooops it was the wrong one or imagine being stucked on a different key signature as a singer different from the one the instrumentation is giving.

7. LET YOUR MUSIC BE GOD DRIVEN: Remember that anything outside God doesn’t last long and is devoid of fulfilment. Remember David, our harp player in the bible and how through music he was used by God. You can be used too. You can sing, play the instrument and people will run to Jesus. Never play the instrument without ministering to yourself even before others. Be purpose driven and God inspiring as this is the way to derive fulfillment in your chosen musical career.

These few steps if carried out can mean a lot to your musical career, I do hope this helps. This is just one way I want to reach out to others in my field who I feel may need this. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to share.

Health / Things Your Probably Don’t Know About Getting Enough Sleep by itseedris(m): 11:42am On Mar 21, 2016
Do you know that getting enough sleep is a science, and there are all kinds of biological, chemical, emotional, physical and lifestyle factors that influence the quality and quantity of your sleep. As a Sleep Acupuncturist with years of experience solely treating insomnia, I understand the complex mechanisms involved, and have used this expertise to help many patients. – Damiana Corca (Huffingtonpost)

Things Your Probably Don’t know About Getting Enough Sleep

The more tired you are, the harder it can be to sleep. That’s why short naps or simply lying down for half an hour in the early afternoon can help insomnia.

1. Insomnia can be induced by and fluctuate with hormonal imbalances linked with your menstrual cycle. Keeping track of your sleep patterns and menstrual cycle can help you feel more at ease, knowing there is reason and predictability to the changes. Then, work with a healthcare provider to regulate your hormones.

2. Waking up earlier than most people, even by an hour or two, is a sign of stress, also possible anxiety or depression. Try starting or deepening meditation and stress-reduction practices. Even five minutes of meditation each evening for 21 days can help you get enough sleep. Changes may be gradual, but even a 25% improvement is a sign that you can heal your sleep over time.

3. Eating a healthy breakfast that includes protein shortly after waking up triggers a spike in cortisol levels. As a result, most likely there will be a significant drop in cortisol in the evening and it can help falling asleep and staying asleep more soundly at night. Try eating about 20 grams of protein and also getting morning exposure to sunlight for 30 days, to see improvements in your sleep quality.

4. Just as you can’t make yourself faint, you can’t make yourself sleep. That’s why the goal, in your mind, should always just be to rest. Usually sleep follows. This is similar to when we intend to meditate and end up falling asleep instead. Our thoughts are powerful, and setting appropriate expectations can be very helpful.

5. Within a 24-hour day, 12 of those hours should be active, engaging and outward-focused. The other 12 hours should be less stimulating. I like to suggest that your life after 7pm be about slowing down, taking it easy, avoiding disturbing news, and putting aside most electronics (unless you want to watch a laugh-out-loud kind of movie).

6. The more “at peace” [/b]we are with ourselves, the better we sleep. Take the evening to acknowledge your inner angst, fears and worries. If you feel them, they are a part of you. Allow them to be, and they will release a little more. Then you are more likely to fall into a deeper sleep.

[b]7. Drop any/all ideas
you might have of what sleep should look like. Our bodies will do anything to get the sleep it needs to be at least functional. Allow enough hours in a night to sleep, but then forget how much you slept. Simply notice how you feel in the morning. That is how you gauge the level of your sleep quality.

8. Establish a general idea of when you want to go to sleep, then watch for that perfect of moment of sleepiness. You don’t want to miss that, or you will hit a second wind and have a harder time trying to fall asleep later.

9. Wake up at the same time each morning, no matter for how long you slept. If you keep up with it, your body will learn that you are committed to waking up at that time, and will naturally make your sleep more efficient.

Food / This Is What Eating Will Do To You by itseedris(m): 8:41am On Jan 27, 2016
Eggs are extremely healthy food, so it is highly advisable to include them in your daily menu.
Here are 12 most important reasons to do so:

1.Eggs Can Save Your Life
Many of you do not know that the human body can produce eleven essential amino acids, necessary to sustain life, but it needs nine more, so can you guess where can you find the rest? In eggs, indeed! A lack of those 9 amino acids can lead to muscle wasting, decreased the immune response, weakness, fatigue, and changes to the texture of your skin and hair.

2. Improve Your Cholesterol Profile
We all know some the main things concerning cholesterol, that it can be bad if high, that there are two types of cholesterol: good and bad, and that eggs contain cholesterol in large amounts.

3. Boost Your Immune System

An egg or two in the day can help you prevent infections, diseases and viruses. Namely, eggs include around a quarter (about 22 percent) of your RDA of selenium, a nutrient that boosts your immune system and regulates the thyroid hormones.

4. Reduce The Risk Of Heart Diseases
LDL cholesterol is ‘bad’ cholesterol, since LDL particles broadcast their fat molecules into artery walls, and drive atherosclerosis, mainly botching the arteries.

5. Improve the brain function

The essential nutrient called choline found in eggs provides their nutritive value and power. It is a component of cell membranes and is needed for the acetylcholine synthesis.
6. Eggs lead to healthy teeth and bones
Being one of the rare natural sources of Vitamin D, eggs are extremely beneficial for the health of the bones and teeth, as they strengthen them. They help the calcium absorption, which is crucial for the healthy function of the heart, colon and metabolism.

7. Eggs can improve your hair and skin
B-complex vitamins are crucial for the healthy condition and appearance of your skin, hair, eyes, and liver, and eggs are abundant in B2, B% and B12. They also maintain the proper brain function.

8. Great for your eye health
Two antioxidants, found in the egg yolk, lutein and zeaxanthin, protect the eyes and promote eye health.
These antioxidants significantly decrease the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts, which are among the major reasons for blindness and vision impairment in the case of older people.

9. Eggs can help you lose weight
Eggs are known to be very useful in the process of melting fat and losing excess pounds. The major reason for this may be the fact that they provide a longer feeling of fullness.

10. You’ll Feel Fuller And Eat Less
They are so rich source of quality protein, that all other sources of protein are measured compared to eggs. Many studies have demonstrated the effect of high-protein foods on appetite. In other words, they take the edge off. On a scale called the Satiety Index, which estimates how much foods contribute to the feeling of fullness, eggs score pretty high.

11. Eggs Eliminate stress and anxiety

The deficiency of the nine amino acids that can be found in eggs can affect the mental health. According to a study from 2004, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, potentially by adjusting serotonin in the nervous system, diets containing lysine greatly decreased anxiety and stress levels.

12. Eggs provide much energy
Vitamin B2, also known as riboflavin, is part of the eight B-group vitamins. These vitamins are extremely beneficial for the body, as they promote the energy production, by converting the consumed food into fuel. Namely, an egg contains 15 percent of your RDA of vitamin B2! Apart from energizing your body, eggs enter the list of 25 best foods for a nice toned body.

Foreign Affairs / Married Zimbabwean Pastor Involved In Car Accident During Sex With School Girl ( by itseedris(m): 10:50am On Nov 11, 2015
A PASTOR with a local pentecostal church and his friend’s sex adventure turned into horror recently. They picked up two school girls and began having a fling with them in their car as they drove along Leopold Takawira Street, resulting in an accident.

The pastor was a driving a silver Honda vehicle, registration number ADG 9166.

Eyewitnesses said the pastor’s friend was having a fling with a girl in the back seat while the pastor, who was driving, had the other girl in the front passenger seat. When the news team arrived at the scene, police had whisked away the two school girls after an angry crowd began beating them up.

However, the pastor’s wife had arrived and sat in the car arguing with the man of cloth. The wife had promptly arrived after eye witnesses phoned her. Excited crowds pulled out the school girls’ ties and socks, throwing them in the air as they enjoyed the drama.

Those who know the pastor phoned his wife and advised her to come and confront her cheating husband. As she was on her way to the ‘sex scene’, members of the public were busy beating up the pastor, his friend and the two young girls.

After a thorough beating as punishment for doing what he preaches against, the pastor began bleeding and surprisingly, beer bottles and cider cans were also found in pastor’s vehicle. Two used condoms were also found in the car and the disgruntled ‘Mai Mufundisi’ was breathing fire at her cheating husband.

Politics / The Impunity Of Executive Convoys On Our Roads by itseedris(m): 3:54pm On Sep 11, 2015
According to a facebook user Sunday Akoji, he stated that his friends were on their way to markudi from abuja when this incident happened.

READ What he wrote on his facebook timeline:

Yesterday my friends Lois Iorvihi, her younger Sister Joi and brother Jerry were at the receiving end of Police brutality at the instance of an Executive convoy.

The trio were on their way from Makurdi to Abuja. The journey from Makurdi through Lafia to Akwanga was smooth until they got to Nasarawa Eggon less than 100km from Abuja.
If you are familiar with the road, just immediately after the bypass on that sharp bend where many souls have perished, a dispatch rider overtook her car and was crisscrossing in front of her instructing her to clear off the road.

Before she knew what was going on she heard a loud siren from behind. As she was trying to veer off the road, a Hilux van loaded with riot Policemen armed to the teeth pushed her car off the road. In her agitated state she managed to bring the car to a halt in front of the valley.

Immediately she brought the car to a stopped four riot Mobile Police men descended on the car using the nozzle of their rifles to perforate and scratch the body of her car.

While this was going on, her brother seated on the passenger seat wind down and pleaded with the Police men thus:


Immediately they dragged him out of the car, used the butt of their rifles on his jaw and beat him up to a pulp.

While this was going on her younger sister Joi brought out her phone and took some pictures. They saw her and seized her phones and Ipad, and smashed all their devices.

Meanwhile Lois has gone hysterical and was screaming on the middle of the road shouting, “Is this fair,” repeatedly.

At a stage traffic began to build up on both sides of the road. Someone whispered to her, “Madam their Oga dey inside that Jeep, go and beg him.”

She then walked towards the heavily tinted SUV bearing the Nigerian Coat of Arm and insignia of a Governor. When she got to a few yards before the car, the heavily tinted widow was brought down. Lo and behold, seated at the owner’s corner was Governor Tanko Al Makura of Nasarawa state.

The first thing the Governor said was, “Young girl, you are so rude. Look at how you’re dressed like a prostitute.”

(She was wearing a short gown that covered up to her knee).

In her agitated state, she fired back at His Excellency, Governor Tanko Al Makura and said:

“How am I rude. Is this fair? Is this why we voted for you? We did not vote for you so that your convoy will run us out of the road. Look at what your security are doing? They are destroying my car, beating my brother to a pulp and smashing all our mobile devices just because we had the misfortune of driving in front of your convoy?”

Governor Al Makura fired back at her thus:

“You can take the case to wherever you wish or go to hell.”

He wind up and his ADC who was standing by the car window pushed her away and entered the car.

She saw his name on the tag on his chest. She called out his name, RINGIM!


And they zoomed off leaving the Hilux van loaded with riot Policemen.

They arrested Lois, Joi and her brother Jerry and took them back to the Divisional Police Headquarters in Lafia at about 5pm yesterday.

On getting to the station in Lafia, she was slammed with two count charges:



The were detained until this afternoon and released after forcing her to write a letter of apology addressed to His Excellency, Governor Tanko Al Makura of Nasarawa state for obstructing his convoy and being rude to him.

As we speak Jerry is in pains and presently receiving treatment from Police brutality.

His offense: Asking the Policemen to take it easy with his sister who was driving in front of Governor Al Makura’s convoy.

Joi is depressed! Her phones, Ipad were smashed on the road and a Police man attached to the convoy of Al Makura used his jungle boots and jumped repeatedly on the devices so that they are destroyed beyond repairs.

Take a look at the attached photo of Lois’s car. That’s her Peugeot 407 without a single dent before the encounter with Governor Tanko Al Makura’s convoy.

Photo below:My people, is this fair? Much as we cannot do anything and Tanko Al Makura and his Rottweilers playing God has all the powers and teeth to deal with hapless citizens who obstructs his convoy on a Federal Highway, we must ask the question again and again, IS THIS FAIR?

Today it is the turn of Lois, Joi and Jerry. Tomorrow it may be your turn. Remember injustice to one, is injustice to all.

Let the words go out, share it widely, the convoy of Governor Tanko Al Makura and the Policemen attached to him are a beast oppressing motorists on the road.

Run for dear life when Tanko Al Makura is driving behind you.

The Last line:
