Hopefully other wannabe baby mamas will learn from this drama but I doubt. As soon as they see a celeb, they get wet instantly. Awon oma ale.

|Agriculture / What Makes Nigerian The Biggest Producer Of Cassava Worldwide? by Perotti: 12:53am On Jun 06, 2018|
Hello Agripreneurs and my bosses, As a grad student of soil and crop at here in the US, one research question that has always intrigued me is what makes Nigeria the biggest producer of cassava worldwide (since 2002 till date). Considering that most farmers cannot afford chemical fertilizers, pesticides and optimized irrigation, I don't know what mother nature has endowed us with that makes our soils so good for cassava farming. I tried doing a google search but came up short, so I have decided to seek the opinions of our esteemed farmers here on Nairaland.
Documents and links are also encouraged. Please share. Thank you

Guys and ladies in the US, please which money transfer company has the best rate to send money to Nigeria?
|Travel / Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 13 by Perotti: 1:29am On Feb 09, 2018|
And they earn way more than professors in Nigeria. It’s better than nothing.

Hello to the great folks in this house, I want to ask those who have been living in the US about buying a car. I saw one Ad on facebook for a 2003 Nissan Murano going for $2500 with mileage of 198k. The owner says the only repair issues i need to do is a tune up and new tires.
Do you think it will be wise to go for such?

Recreational marijuana is legal in Colorado.

I don't know but its an easy search to do via google. I can speak for my college (Agriculture).
|Travel / Re: General U.s.a (student) Visa Enquiries-part 13 by Perotti: 8:40pm On Jan 19, 2018|
Not sure because I am not an Engineering grad student. I think you can try but make sure your GRE is very high.

It’s been 6 months of my stay and studies here at Colorado State and it’s been good so far.
My advice for incoming folks without funding:
Sort out your finances before coming here.
Never give up
Hold onto God
I will attach a photo of stuff I got for free from the Larimer county food bank (once every month on campus) to motivate guys. Pls we neeed more black folks here at Colorado State. Apply and hope for the best!

|Politics / Why We Need A Paradigm Shift In The Nigerian Way Of Life by Perotti: 12:04am On Oct 08, 2017|
It was a sunny Friday morning and as we sat in a restaurant in Downtown Fort Collins, having breakfast and awaiting the arrival of the Chair of the Agriculture committee of the Colorado State House of Reps, all sorts of questions and thoughts formed in my head. Is this really happening? What if she sends a rep? Can a Nigerian Professor schedule a meet with a member of his/her state rep without any hassles? Can I ever get this opportunity in Nigeria? Finally, she arrived, dressed as modest as possible with no trace of flamboyance characteristic of the agbada-wearing, siren-blowing and larger-than-life honorable and senators I am accustomed to. This meeting was scheduled by my thesis supervisor to push for a bill to give grants and incentives to Coloradoan farmers to practice sustainable Agriculture for the long term benefit of soil health which is crucial to mankind’s continued supply of food, fibre and fuel. As they both ironed out the details of this bill and how best to present it, I sat and absorbed what was going on like a fish out of water. It was interesting and educative, but even more inspiring. More inspiring not just because I have never met a Nigerian Rep face-to-face but here I am witnessing how good governance works and not the empty rhetoric I was used to. We really need to wake up in motherland Nigeria. For a Nigerian Prof to schedule this sort of meeting will not just involve knowing multiple “Ogas at the top” but even the PA to the Rep could be a stumbling block let alone other bureaucratic bottlenecks in the system. Rhetorics like ‘be the change you envisage to see in Nigeria’, ‘4 years is not enough to make a difference’ and other similar ones that has been used by Nigerian politicians has been used as a camouflage for the crass ineptitude and inefficiency of our political class. Instead of ‘leading by example’ some of these jobbers prefer to hug the famous ‘do as I say not do as I do’ mantra. During the inauguration of the late President John F. Kennedy of blessed memory, he inspired millions of Americans and indeed the entire world by his eternal wordings of ‘Ask not what your country can do for you, ask for what you can do for your country’, and this wasn’t empty rhetorics. He led by example in countless ways. If we all want a better future for Nigerians both living and unborn, we must shift our way of life from a ‘chop-I-chop, man-know-man’ mentality to a system that rewards hardwork, integrity and uprightness. Beginning from our student union presidents in our universities, to the top echelon of the political class, we must begin to imbibe and demonstrate virtues such as selfless service, humility, true patriotism and honesty. This is not a choice to be made but a price to be paid for local, regional and international greatness. Rome was not built in a day and America was not built in a decade but Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore was built in less than 30 years. Malaysia, Taiwan and other Asian tigers were mostly beneath Nigeria economically in the 60s but today they are all far ahead of the so-called ‘giant of Africa.’ Fellow countrymen, we need to wake up and shift our mindset and way of life!

Well, my great people, its kinda long overdue for my POE and American transcript. Departed the shores of Nigeria on the 13th of August via Royal Air Maroc and it was a nice experience except the long layer overs (10 hrs in Casablanca, 7 hrs at JFK). Nice meal aboard the flight to JFK. Got to JFK around 2am and my POE officer (Asian man) asked me just two questions I can't remember again but no big deal. The flight from JFK to Denver was nice but long too (4 hrs). Got to Denver and took a prebooked shuttle to Fort Collins. Stayed with a nice white family for 3 days before moving to my own place. First week of classes has just flown by and its been great here so far. My 2 cents advice for those who do not want to take the GRE is that the stress of taking the test is really worth it especially for the sake of funding. I wont advise anyone to come here without properly loading up financially even if you get funding.
Stats; GRE: 307, 4.0 AWA, TOEFL: 105, 4.02/5.0 (BSc), 72.3% (MSc), research/work experience (1 year), Agric Microbiology/Plant Science.
I got my admission+funding via an advert on Twitter, the PI was looking for a student to do some research relating to my field and I threw in my CV, and God did the rest. I advise anyone with similar stats to follow Profs on twitter doing a similar research, they do tweet or retweet grad students openings in related labs. My desperation for funding led me to twitter and its another goldmine of info.
Cheers and see you all at the top!!!

Visa approved earlier today, 07/08/2017. God is just too good. My admission to visa journey all in 3 weeks!
Story for another day.
VO: pls pass your i20 and passport.
Me: passed them and added good morning.
VO: good morning. Why this school?(she didn't even read the i20, and she just started typing fast on her computer)
Me: Because I will be working with Dr Lionel Messi as research assistant on a funded project in the Department of Crop and Soil Science at Colorado State University. Colorado state also has an agric experimental station where they produce quality research output.(I was so tensed, I spoke so fast, VO said I should calm down and talk to her as a friend)
VO asked me the same question again and I answered in a similar fashion. VO said again that she is given me a last chance for the question. I calmed down well and answered her, tho I added that I had two Skype interviews with my supervisor and we have a good working relationship...
VO: tell about your MSc thesis
Me: I explained what I did and after a while she cut in
VO: where did u do your MSc?
Me: Federal University of Agric, Abk
VO: you did your undergrad in a diff school?
VO: who is sponsoring your studies
Me: I got a full assistantship.
VO: wow okay, have you traveled before?
Me: yes to Canada for a conference and...she cuts in and says, don't say too much than asked.
VO: how long did u spend in Canada
Me: one week
VO: which other countries have u been to
Me: Benin rep
VO: tell me about your family
Me: I come from a family of 5, two siblings.
VO: are they all here?
VO: tell me about your ties to Nigeria
Me: I currently work as an extension officer withe the FGN as an intermediary BTW farmers and researchers. I facilitate and communicate best agric practices to them
Vo: are your employers guaranteeing your job when you return
Vo: kept typing and all of a returns my i20 sevis and the famous white paper. She said I will receive a text on picking up my visa..bla bla bla.
Me: thank you very much..
I am so grateful to God. He broke multiple protocols for me.
I felt tensed because she denied a guy before me going to Boston Uni or so and the guy had a GRE score of 327. She asked him if he had ever traveled before and he said no. Visa approval is a battle oo. Scaling through admission is one battle, visa is another. I pray that God will help us.
Special thanks to Toakins, she is in Iowa State now and she did a mock for me before she flew. Thanks to the indefatigable team of men and women of this great and legendary thread. God bless you all. Amen
Abeg I dey find cheap flight o. I am leaving on Sunday..Colorado people pls show up o
