Travel / Re: Have You Ever Been Denied Visa To A Country Before? Share Your Experience by learner007(m): 7:49pm On Feb 20
But with your F1 visa, have you legalized now ?

Have you got your papers ?

No, I haven't. I am absolutely taking things easy and following due process. I will file for EB2 once I get a few of my PhD papers published. This is one way to save myself from more dramas. I have had enough with these Western women. Once you are Nigerian, some will straight up tag you 'paper hustler'... grin grin

LIAR! angry

Just imagine a newbie like you who's fresh off the boat and in the U.S for <2mths saying this sort of NONSENSE! angry

You're probably being fed, clothed and definitely squatting with someone and already acting like you're all that. undecided This exactly is the result of the negative thinking of the typical Nigerian and why they don't make it in the diaspora.

You indeed have a very long way to go and we'll see how 'easy' you'll make that money. cool

He was actually having a good day until he mentioned B1/B2 visa. I was like this one don lie the lie wey pass him size. That is the worst visa you want to come to the US with if you intend to stay back. After 6 months, you are illegal. You cannot get a social security number. Once that is missing, you hardly can do anythjng meaningful until your status is restored. You could be lucky to find a citizen who is willing to help, if not, African-Americans go show you shege and subject you to all forms of ignominy. For the next 2 years sef your life never arrange talkless of building mansion. I guess this kind of fables was what I was trying to avoid when I put in the hardwork and moved here for grad studies. Don't believe everything you read on the internet!

Romance / Re: My Girlfriend Just Broke Up With Me Because I Refused Going To Church by learner007(m): 4:07pm On Feb 07
Going to church doesn't signify the fact that you'll go to heaven. Some people go to church based on the fact that " If I don't go people will talk" which is absolutely wrong. Go to church because you want to and not because you are forced to. She can force you to church but she can't force you to heaven

And the God of that heaven you are going to didnt advise you in His word that you should fellowship together with people of like mind? I'm sure the day the church starts paying members, just like your job does, then you would start encouraging them to go... undecided
Education / Re: Why Is Any Number Multiplied By Zero Equals To Zero? by learner007(m): 2:25pm On Jan 14
Let me respond as a professional mathematician:

First, you need to know that multiplication means repeated addition. What do I mean?

3 x 4 = 3 times 4 or 4 times 3 (commutativity property)
= 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 (or 4 + 4 + 4 )
= 12
If you have 10 x 0, then it means zero is added in 10 places: 0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0+0 =0
By the commutative property, you could say 10 in no place at all grin

I hope this helps.
Travel / Re: Canada Hype And Travel Rush: Here Are Things You Need To Know by learner007(m): 1:13pm On Jan 11
E easy to advise people from outside the country. We know it is easier to start up a business in Nigeria, but do you know that when the system is messed up individual potential dies? You need Electricity to run any venture, good roads to be accessible by your market and fluid transport for delivery. Why do you think home deliveries is the order of the day in naija? Traffic wan kill people. Guy, forget that thing! Leave Nigeria for politicians and the rich pikin dem. A stupid country where the law is only against the poor but impunity it the right of the rich cry

Not Everyone has a Destiny outside the Countey.
Not Everyone outside the country is doing great.
Many there are Living on the people home.

Seek the Face of GOD to know where your Package is. Else you travel out and the Hawker at Home is better than you are..

It is high time you tamed this desperate urge, of yours, to always read to reply, instead of to read to understand. He said, "if you want to and have the opportunity to do so". Moreso, he didn't say to burn the bridge, he gave an option to come back. To build a CV and career abroad is not by illegal means. Whether your 'holier than thou spirit' has revealed this to you or not is not our concern, but the fact remains that international exposure doesn't hurt so much. You can't count 10 top CEOs and MDs in Nigeria who didn't have an international exposure. Don't ONLY stick to the Bible alone, read other books too. That way you will make more sense, both here and in heaven, and that we are going to heaven doesn't mean we should be foolish and irrelevant on earth. Shalom!

This is an example of how the morality of the society is being systematically broken down by the evil forces that rule the world.

What is the lesson here for the younger generation? That being upright doesn't matter anymore?

Not quite, but that even in chastisement, we can still learn to show some love. The public shame and expulsion has taught all a great lesson. But then we don't necessarily need to throw away the baby and the bath water. God loves us deeper than this...

Travel / Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by learner007(m): 10:20pm On Jul 07, 2020

Thanks, you already answered it all. So, to schedule an appointment, I need to start by calling NPVS or the Nigerian embassy in DC? I really dont wanna travel all the way to DC just for passport renewal.

I just wanna know where to start, like the person to call and start the scheduling processing. I like your wordplay up there tho, indomie generation wouldn't know what is 2go

Just go to the DC embassy website and apply directly. Just Google it, you will find the link. Fill in your info and pay, then a link will be sent to you...that's all!
Travel / Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by learner007(m): 9:50pm On Jul 07, 2020

Can one go to the embassy without an official appointment? I got scheduled for December

I would ask you to try your luck. I was scheduled for Nov 16th, though I got an initial date of July 1st from innovate1. I went anyways and presented my case in an 'omoluwabi' manner. I found favor with them

PS: I had to go because I had booked my flight and all before the change of date. Plus, the date doesn't work with my current passport, as it expires in August and ISSS already sent me a friendly reminder. I had only one option, 2go and tell them whatsapp! grin grin grin


Travel / Re: General USA Student Visa Enquiries-part 15 by learner007(m): 9:45pm On Jul 07, 2020

Damn, did yo ;Du have to go all the way to DC or you did it online? I'm in California and wouldn't want to travel to DC for this. If you did online, could you pls share the link including contacts of the agency? Also, how much did it cost you in total? Thanks for responding.

You have to appear in person for your biometrics. I had thought they would transfer the one I did at Ikoyi, but they didn't. I had to travel all the way from Urbana-Champaign to DC. But really, it was an amazing experience. I used the opportunity to see The White House and other places in DC. DC is damn beautiful! grin grin grin

PS: I don't quite get what you mean by how much in total. I assume you mean passport, feeding, airbnb, metro, flight and all. I spent about $600 (spent 4 days in DC). NPVS charges $165 for passport renewal while direct payment is just $106.

Has anyone renewed their Nigerian passport here in the US? How did you go about it pls? I need to know the steps on how to renew a Nigerian passport in the US

I just did mine last week at the DC embassy. Right now it is hellish, as there are tons of applicants still on the queue since far back as January. The NY embassy is still closed down, Atlanta refused to reply any emails, so I had to apply though NPVS (an agency that relays your application though innovate1). It costs more but was worth it for me. The embassy at DC only resumed skeletal services on the 1st of July, and has been mandated to attend to ONLY 20 applicants per day.

Beware of these 4 killers of a sweet relationship. They are also called the 4 Horsemen of Relationship Apocalypse. You have to be on the lookout to when these tendencies begin to rear their ugly head up in your relationship and manage them properly. They are all as a result of emotional outburst or emotional overwhelm. The way they are being managed will determine if a certain relationship will be salvaged or not.
These 4 horsemen are:
1. Criticism: This is the negative flipside of complaint. Complaints are not bad infact they are constructive to any relationship. They help put things back in order when both partners have a good listening habit. Complaints are targeted at a specific action at which your partner failed. Criticism on the other hand convey distraught mixed with negative words targeted at your partner.
Look at these:
Complaint: There is no petrol in the car. Why didn't you fill it up like you said you would?
Criticism: Why can't you ever remember something? I told you a thousand times to fill up the tank and you didn't.
You see! Criticisms are demeaning. Let's learn to honour and respect our partners. Be nice.

2. Contempt: Contempt is a feeling of disgust........
