|Business / support for Okonko Iweala to lead Wto, An Acid Test For Joe Biden by krisjnr007: 4:15am On Feb 03, 2021|
By quickly rejoining the WHO and Paris Accord, President Biden made clear his commitment to work with allies on the most important issues America faces in the world today. Repairing broken relationships globally is a critical means to even more critical ends, whether it is ending the pandemic or addressing climate change. For the Biden administration, a renewed commitment to multilateral relationships also extends to a more effective strategy to address China's behavior in the world, whether that pertains to irresponsible lending practices in poor countries or unfair trade practices with the United States and our allies.
But in one early test of this new commitment to lead with multilateralism, the new administration remains silent. After an extensive vetting process within the World Trade Organization, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala emerged as the consensus pick for WTO director general last fall, just prior to the U.S. elections. Okonjo-Iweala's selection came as no surprise. She is a widely respected public figure and economist, long known in international circles for her effective leadership in multilateral posts. She also happens to be a U.S. citizen. Unfortunately, the Trump administration blocked her selection in the 11th hour. They did so with brazen indifference to a careful process that worked steadily toward consensus across a wide and diverse group of WTO member countries.
WTO members in Geneva are now exercising considerable patience as they await a signal from the Biden administration to proceed with Okonjo-Iweala's selection. Some degree of patience is warranted. These are literally the first days of the administration, and very few of the key officials with responsibilities for trade policy are even in their jobs yet.
But to argue for patience also risks legitimizing the notion that the Biden administration faces a real choice here. Advocates for the candidate who ultimately lost out to Okonjo-Iweala now see an opportunity to re-open the contest. And as the process remains in limbo, a question of who will be toughest on China seems to have emerged as a purported test for the administration.
I can say from my time working with Okonjo-Iweala as an official in the U.S. Treasury and subsequently, I have no doubt about her ability and willingness to be tough when toughness is called for. And when it comes to my support for Okonjo-Iweala, I'm in good company. An impressive group of former officials from Republican and Democratic administrations have called on the Biden administration to allow Okonjo-Iweala's selection to go forward.
Ultimately, the WTO pick does stand as a test of the Biden administration's approach to China. But the question is not whether Okonjo-Iweala alone will be tough on China. It is whether the administration will embrace the consensus pick in a manner that strengthens the U.S. position in this critical multilateral forum, or whether it will carry forward a damaging legacy of the previous administration by snubbing the will of America's allies. The choice is so clear as not to be a choice at all. The Biden administration should give Okonjo-Iweala the nod as soon as possible.

|Crime / Re: Kidnappers Abduct & Kill Salihu Dovo, Ardo-kola LGA Chairman In Taraba by krisjnr007: 2:51pm On Jan 24, 2021|
Yes, he was kidnapped one time, but today he is your minister of labour. What office would the dead local government chairman hold again, those 44 rice farmers, are they coming back soon? I can go on and on.
The word kidnapping found its way in Nigeria from Niger Delta, but this they did for economic emancipation of the rejoin, though there is no less evil. But, killing is worst than any

Why would you want to pressurise democratically elected people to leave office? [/quote
Who voted them, who counted your vote. You need to be real. So your vote counted in ogun election, your vote also counted in kogi election, your vote also counted in 2019 general election.
Even if we can not demand for their resignation, we can demand for accountability while in office. How many people died of insecurities, who would you blame, me , you or the leaders

|Career / Re: Do Not Accept A Banking Job - I Refused To Listen by krisjnr007: 8:50am On Aug 06, 2020|
Unfortunately, I am one those that bank job almost ruined their life/discipline. I studied computer science and engineering and was very good in C, C++, qbasic programming language as the time I left school. My final year project topic was on website design, which I beautifuly executed. However, I got appointment as an executive assistant with one of the high paying Nigerian banks as at time, but little did I know I was heading to doom till I was coerced to resign because dwindling economy.
Today I am seriously learning programming from almost the scratch because, neither C, C++ nor Qbasic is a recognized language in programming in today's world. Things have changed, but I did not change with it.
For those who may still ask, CAN I TAKE A BSNK JOB?. The answer is neither YES nor NO. It all depends on the individual. Remember, some people studied accounting, banking, marketing or all those banking related discipline, so if they don't work in bank, where else would they work. So to these types, bank job could be their heaven.
My interest is on those guys that studied Engineering, Law, science courses etc. If the bank emoploys you as ordinary teller, cashier, funds transfer, marketer and you did not study bank related discipline, just be aware you are heading to doom.

As In my hypothesis about mothers. If you have a mother that have performed VD find out from her if a dick can be too big for her again. More the penetration more the sensation for this group, one can hardly hurt them with big dick

|Romance / Re: Does A Big Penis Make A Difference While Having Sex? by krisjnr007: 8:58am On Oct 24, 2019|
Mother's that have done VD(Virginia Delivery) have a different twist. What matters for them is dick length, no matter how big or small the dick it will not generate enough friction in the puzzy. They prefer it as long as possible
|Romance / Re: Does A Big Penis Make A Difference While Having Sex? by krisjnr007: 8:36am On Oct 24, 2019|
Women's puzzy is elastic in nature, so it can expand and contract in sizes.
However, the more you stretch an elastic material the more it looses it's elastic property. Have you ever seen a call gul complain of dick size being big or small. Most times, their puzzy have being stretched beyond elastic limit.

I think there is a variation in having ones sexual desires meet during intercourse. Just as we have men's members in different size, so do women's puzzy come in different sizes.
What makes sex sweet is the sensation that comes from friction at the epidemics layer of men's /women's erogenous zone.
Therefore, a plus size puzzy will require a plus size member unless there won't be enough friction to produce sensation that will make the sex enjoyable. Same goes for all the sizes.
However, if a lady has a small puzzy and the guy has a plus size dick, it will not work well. The guys dick will hurt her and she will not drive as much pleasure as she would have, if she is playing with a small sized guy.
Same goes for a small size puzzy

Do girls like a big member while having sex? Well, this is the most confusing part of all. Many girls are happy to snuggle with an average member, while many other girls want something that’s way bigger than just the average.
Some girls say a bigger penis means better sex, while other girls hate a big member because it hurts them. So what’s the deal here?
Does the size of a man’s member actually affect the outcome of sex?

8. Stay on topic
Clouding judgements with previous issues will snowball into bigger ones when the past is brought up. This will cause the disagreement to escalate into full blown fights that are not necessary. When you notice that the argument is snowballing, take control of it and bring it back to where you can both handle the issue at hand.

4. Don’t run away from the problem
Avoiding talking about the issue directly is damaging to any relationship. Try to tackle the issues head on rather than letting it drag for a long time and erupt in the future. Talking about issues can be scary and uncomfortable. However, it is better to handle them at once and communicate rather than shut down.
5. Have respect for each other
In case an argument happens, one of the ways that prevent them from escalating is maintaining mutual respect for each other. Do not call each other names, be rude towards one another or get physical. You must always remember that you are a team first and foremost.

|Romance / How To Approach An Argument In A Relationship by krisjnr007: 9:46am On Oct 15, 2019|
Arguments are a normal part of life. How you handle them is what makes all the difference.
Coming from different families, cultures and backgrounds, differences will always arise. Even siblings squabble from time to time albeit couples?
Arguments in relationships cannot be avoided. When we let arguments escalate into full blown fights, the relationship ends up being affected eventually. Learning to handle them is a very vital part of relationships.
Here are some tips on how to argue in a loving way.
It is important to plan as a couple on the right timing to discuss issues. You may decide that you should both cool off first and have some space as a way of practicing emotional control. Avoid having arguments when you are both tired, worked up or from work. Have patience with each other and schedule the appropriate time to handle disagreements.
2. Watch your tone
It’s amazing how tone has the power to escalate or deescalate an argument. Whenever you start yelling, no effective communication can take place. Don’t allow your emotions to get the best of you during this time. Approach the argument with a loving and calm tone at all times.
3. Avoid assumptions
More often than not, arguments are caused by miscommunication and misinterpretation of facts. Some couples have even broken up because of assuming that their significant other did something wrong or ‘he said, she said’ from other people. Before you approach them, have an open mind and give them the benefit of a doubt. You should also be able to accept when you are wrong and avoid being defensive.
