Family / Re: Before DNA, Consider The Emotional Health Of Your Wife And Child, Lady Cried Out by RubiesBanking: 8:18am On Sep 29
I don't understand, if the baby was swapped during when the mother was giving birth, they should easily detect if the baby and the mother have a match through DNA...
Shouldn't be a reason why the proposed DNA test center being established in Lagos should be abolished.

There's need to introduce new stuufs. It's easier to introduce different fonts and formats on forums like Reddit and even quota without having to go through a near-coding process. New features are all needed, like a block button and banning of IP addresses so that trolls won't be able to create another account after getting banned. Some of Nairaland mods should also be sacked.

There is a reason they won't ban IP address. Your public IP address is being recycled by your ISP.
It's not a static IP address but a dynamic address which changes constantly.
If you decide to start banning IP address, it will also affect innocent users.

The newly developed qualifications are:

1. Artificial Intelligence;
2. Cloud Computing;
3. Cyber Security;
4. Data Science;
5. Design Thinking Lead;
6. Design Thinking Practitioner;
7. Internet of Things;
8. Robotic Processing Automation;
9. Quality Engineering Automation;

11. e-Waste.

Madibana said that these qualifications will equip young professionals and the current workforce to deal with the disruptive effects of new technologies, enabling them to innovate and create new products and services across industries.

The qualifications were developed in collaboration with a community of experts such as universities, colleges, and government departments, he said.



Hmm...I'm going into cybersecurity and doing some needed Comptia certification exams to get certified. I will look more into this maybe it can help further my knowledge on the field.

Business / Re: Can I Be Arrested For Defaulting On A loan To A Loan App? by RubiesBanking: 7:37am On Sep 14
I really don't blame them to be honest. I still remember when I borrowed one of my guy around 50k and he promised to pay back next week.

When it reached the week he was supposed to pay, i started hearing stories and it kept on going for over 3 months. I had to involve some guys to collect my money from this dude before he could pay back.

And do you know the most funniest thing? The dude started acting as if I'm wicked and all but he decided to block me and not respond to my messages for almost 2 months?

Initially I didn't support what these apps do nowadays calling your contacts to retrieve their money, but honestly most Nigerians are very wicked when it comes to paying back the money they owe. If you don't involve someone to threaten him to pay back you won't see your money.

Some even brag to themselves how they did not pay up thinking they're wise and they pocketed free money. That nonsense attitude must stop.

If you know you don't have a means of paying up during the agreed time it's best you don't go to them for help.

Crime / Re: Is It Legal For Fueling Stations To Charge 50naira For Using Jerricans? by RubiesBanking: 7:31pm On Aug 24
SportsHD:

Which state Is this?
They once tried it with me at one petrol station in gwarimpa, in Abuja. I just put the keg in my boot, paid for the petrol I bought and zoomed off. I don't have time for nonsense.
That's a ploy for attendants to make extra money.

Lagos state to be precise around Ogba. Even the customers that are meant to be supporting you against this illegal charge will be mocking you because they think the money is too small.

The money is not an issue but for the fact they claim what they're doing is legal. Even the new fuelling stations that just got opened around the area didn't take long before they started joining them.

Crime / Is It Legal For Fueling Stations To Charge 50naira For Using Jerricans? by RubiesBanking: 7:13pm On Aug 24
I just stopped near one of the fuelling stations around my area to buy fuel, and I noticed this issue of fuelling stations deducting 50 naira on the basis that they're not meant to sell fuel to customers using kegs.
Is it legal what they're doing? And it's almost in every single fuelling station they do this sort of thing.
The worst thing about this is if you argue it out with them, they will just take the fuel they sold for you and sell it to another customer whose ready to pay.

Phones / Facebook Is Letting Religious Groups Charge Users $10 Per Month For Exclusive Co by RubiesBanking: 9:02am On Jul 27
Facebook is trying to persuade religious groups to partner with it, The New York Times reported.

The Times reported that Facebook has been courting religious groups since at least 2018, but it's made even more effort over the past year.

The Times spoke with the Leaders of the Church of God in Christ church, which recently trialed two new tools from Facebook to help it make money. The first let worshippers donate to the church while watching livestreamed services, and the second was a $10 subscription service for exclusive content, including messages from the bishop.

The Times also reported that, last month, Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook's chief operating officer, held a virtual summit for faith leaders in the style of a religious service. At the summit, religious leaders discussed new products Facebook had been trialing for their groups.

"Faith organizations and social media are a natural fit because fundamentally both are about connection," Sandberg said, The Times reported.

On Thursday, Reuters reported on Facebook's recent push to appeal to religious groups, saying the company introduced a new "prayer" tool in May.

Facebook did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Facebook has been partnering with religious groups, The New York Times reported.
A US church said Facebook gave it access to new monetization tools.
This included a $10 monthly subscription for exclusive content, including messages from the bishop.

Sandberg also touted Facebook's virtual-reality ambitions.

"Our hope is that one day people will host religious services in virtual reality spaces as well, or use augmented reality as an educational tool to teach their children the story of their faith," she added, The Times reported.

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook's CEO, has championed Facebook's VR division, and he said in an interview last week that he wanted Facebook to become a "metaverse company" — meaning consumers would interact with it in 3D, rather than through their phone screens.

Education / Have You Ever Looked Directly At The Sun During A Solar Eclipse? by RubiesBanking: 7:22am On Jun 09
I have read articles talking about how looking at the sun especially during a solar eclipse can cause a permanent eye damage or a hole in your retina.

Even watched a video by a guy named Mark Thompson, who did an experiment to see what will happen to a pig eye if it viewed the sun directly. I have already attached the video of the experiment below.

WARNING...THIS IS GRAPHIC.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9cMXCemoJI


I also managed to get a few comments from people who made the mistake of viewing the beauty of nature during a solar eclipse with 0% protection and how it regretted that mistake.

Sometime in the early 80's, 82 or 3 I think, there was a solar eclipse. We were TOLD, no idea who, but the rumor was that it was safe to look at it through exposed x-ray film.

So, we lined up outside Lexington hospital ER with our exposed x-ray films in hand and stared at the solar eclipse that afternoon.

It was an amazing thing to see. And when it was fully covered it got dark and very cold from the noon heat that we're used to. I remember a very very bright searing light and a flash sort of then it went away. The lights came back on and the afternoon heated back up and everything returned to normal.

Life happens and you move on. I started using readers many years ago, but no big deal. That's just part of aging.

About 10 years ago while driving I had a big brown perfectly round spot appear in my right eye. Wouldn't blink out, or go away. The left eye was ok. Pretty much freaked me out.

The next day, the optometrist examined it and the first thing he asked was am I right handed, I said I was.

The next question was 'have I ever looked at a solar eclipse?' I said yes, but that was in the early 80's. And "they" said it was safe if we used x-ray film.

He said they were wrong. Then he said you have a burn on your right retina that's perfectly round and consistent with a burn from looking at a solar eclipse. Sometimes the damage takes years to show up, in which it did in my case. Stress and aging can cause it to swell and become visible.

I was working in the cath lab and had a particularly long day and was hurrying and rushing to Lexington for a ceremony to honor Leeburn Ray Harris at the band room when it occurred.

There is nothing that can be done for it, it's irreparable. It's sort of like macular degeneration.

Over the years, the brown spot has gone away unless I get really tired, which I try to avoid because, well..I love sleep.

But my vision in my right eye is severely impacted from a rumor of what was safe. I was young and would try most anything at least once. I can still see out of it, but I only see really big letters. My left eye has accommodated to help it out.

I didn't write this from the victim standpoint because the world needs less whiny victims.

I wrote this to let everyone know to take this upcoming solar eclipse seriously; it's not play.

I have no intention of looking at it again. Don't have but one good eye so I can't lose it.

Be sure to check with an eye doctor about the safest way, if there is one, to look at this phenomenon coming up.

Just a tip.

Don't risk it.

Be safe.


Not me, but 3 friends of mine lost a bet a while back. They each had to stare at the sun for a couple of seconds. One came out okay, but the other two got some form of color blindness. It was a shame because one of the two was a successful graphic designer, but it worked out. He now asks his SO whenever he creating something if the colors are okay, and he goes on as normal


Despite all these stories on the effect of looking at the sun especially during a solar eclipse, some guys feel it's a hoax by scientists (won't blame them since they're used to hearing how eating beans and plantain is bad for your health).

An annular solar eclipse will occur on June 10, 2021, when the Moon will pass between Earth and the Sun, thereby partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth

Now, my question is anyone here is suffering from an eye damage caused by looking at a solar eclipse or know someone that made the same mistake?

Oh she did her best to teach me mathematics but my heart and body isn't just there, I can't count how many times I've been made to crawl the entire school compound just because I was disturbing during maths period.

Mrs Ogunsanya tried though with that her accent, I will just be smiling sheepishly whenever she starts teaching. Her accents makes me laugh in a good way though cheesy

Janet go just dey do pass herself for maths class, always asking questions and answering them like say na maths na her name thereby making the rest of us look bad undecided I won't forgive her for that.

Riliwan comes to school by 10am with lots of excuses, in fact the school got tired of punishing him but only us(his crew) knew he was avoiding maths period grin if only I can do that as well but the fear of my uncle is the beginning of wisdom in my house cry

But in all, I simply don't like maths na after all na art class I dey, wetin consign me consign maths edakun The only time I come alive is during government, English and Literature period.

Op, I get the fact that you're a maths genius, no dey make the rest of us feel bad na cry


I have come to believe that in life, everyone have a special talent, some are gifted in artsery, others in music's, programming...etc
Don't feel bad just because you don't have the skill someone else have, look at what your good at most especially what you love doing and try to hone that skill so you be at your very best.
