| Education / Re: 5 Steps To Self Development by Runningwater(m): 6:51pm On Jan 22|
Quite a number of people live each day as it comes, clueless of what else the next minute holds.
They engage in so many things for the sake of seeking fulfilment, but keep going round the circles.
There are five major steps to coming out of this web of frustration, which I will quickly address.
1. The Listening Habit
The benefit of listening more than you talk can never be over emphasized. There are 101 things you are yet to learn, and if all you do is talk about the things you know, denying others the benefit of depositing some values in you, you will continue to remain where you are.
The more you listen, the higher your state of reasoning, that is like gathering knowledge from different angles, comparing and contrasting till you get the best of it.
Imagine if all you do is to give out, how then will you ever receive?
2. Setting Boundaries
There is this neighbour of mine who jokes a lot to the detriment of another. I mean, he can be so insulting and say things you will remember for life, all in the name of jokes.
I have been enduring his words just so I don't appear strict or unfriendly since no one else was complaining.
But at a point, I told him clearly to his face, right in the presence of everyone, never to say certain words to me again, I also made sure I warned him of his touchy ways. He wanted to laugh it off as usual, but I wasn't in for it. I stood my ground and created that boundary which brought back respect from everyone.
You need to understand that, there are certain things you need to say a big NO to, don't ever be intimidated to accept everything because others are accepting it. You are not everyone.
3. Daily Records
This is something that has helped me grately, each day, I pick a book and write out what I was able to do that day. I check out my mistakes, the words I said which I shouldn't have uttered, and what I desire to do the next day.
This process has brought about tremendous change. Why? Because I am now accountable to my inner mind. I won't want to repeat the same mistakes over and over again, instead, I get the chance to rewrite my ways.
4. Positive Words
One thing I have learnt to do is, never to say "I can't", when I haven't tried.
Why can't you when others can? You become exactly what you say to yourself.
If you have that believe that you can't achieve something, my dear, you won't.
The universe has ears, whatever you say to it is what it brings to you and makes you work on.
Do your best in avoiding negative words.
5. Be Selective
Yes, you read that right. Be highly selective when it comes to people you keep close. Don't be all about pleasing people or making friends with everyone. You don't need them, you can never please them.
Position yourself in a way you attract only people who will add value to your life.
Who has excess friends helped in this life? Instead it brings a lot of negative energies and frenemies.
Only people who are not ready to grow will tag that pride. If that is the price to getting your life on track and influencing your tribe, please pay the price.
These are basic tips that can set you on the proper development journey, especially in this year when everyone is set to grow.
You have certain questions bothering you?
You don't know how to get started?
You need someone to fuel your spirit and be interested in your growth?

Laptop or desktop computer that are preferable for coding are the ones with good CPU, high storage space (both primary and secondary), better OS, good hardware and software compatibility and others, regardless of the manufacturer like HP, Dell, Apple, Asus, Samsung, etc.

| TV/Movies / Re: Mark Angel Is Africa's Greatest Youtuber, A Nigerian by Runningwater(m): 2:52pm On Jul 16, 2020 |
Nigerians Are Unaware That Africa's Greatest Youtuber Is A Nigerian
Alot of Nigerians do not know that Africa's biggest YouTuber is a Nigerian. Interestingly, that title belongs to one 29-year-old Nigerian comedian, scriptwriter, and video producer who oddly doesn’t have as much clout back home as he has loyal fans abroad.
With over 6.39 million subscribers and more than 1 billion views on his 300+ videos, Mark Angel is technically the biggest YouTuber in Africa.(Social blade, 2020)
The Nigerian is best known for the Mark Angel Comedy series of shorts on YouTube, often featuring child comedians such as his 9-year-old niece, Emmanuella Samuel, and her sister, “Aunty” Success Madubuike (age 5 as of 2019).
Mark Angel’s YouTube channel was the first African comedy channel to reach one million subscribers.
Mark Angel was born in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He had a stint at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Osun State, Nigeria, where he had been accepted to study medicine, but he eventually abandoned his studies due to family reasons.
After he left college, he spent time in Nigeria gaining experience in cinematography and theater. In 2013, he began independent filmmaking under the name, Mechanic Pictures, having been unable to find stable work in Nigeria’s film industry, Nollywood.
His skits became an instant hit. In 2017, Mark Angel Comedy received a plaque from YouTube for having reached one million subscriptions. It was the first Nigerian-based YouTube channel to reach that threshold.
Mark Angel’s niece, Emmanuella, has won comedy awards in Nigeria and Australia for her work with Mark Angel and is Africa’s youngest YouTube award winner.
In 2018, she even bagged a nomination in Nickelodeon’s famous Kids’ Choice Awards. Mark Angel Comedy videos can reach up to a million views during the first week after posting.
Few people know it but Mark Angel is, by some distance, Africa’s most successful YouTuber.
So, How Come Most Nigerians Don’t Know This?
Short Answer: It’s probably because Nigerians don’t care about YouTube and YouTubers that much, at least, not as much as they care about other social platforms.
As a matter of fact, compared to other social media platforms that are popular in Nigeria like WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram, YouTube has only a tiny fraction of active users of which only an even smaller fraction can be termed “consistent users.”
Maybe it’s not even Mark Angel, perhaps the fact of the matter is that most Nigerians don’t even know any of the biggest YouTubers in Nigeria.
And Why’s This?
Hootsuite’s State of Digital report placed the number of internet users in Nigeria at 98.39 million as of 2019.
Of the 98.39 million Nigerian internet users, it was found that 54 percent access the internet on a daily basis while only 12 percent (24 million) have active social media accounts.
Additionally, WhatsApp was found to be the most active social media platform in the country with 85 percent of internet users. Facebook placed second with 78 percent,
Instagram came third at 57 percent, followed by FB Messenger at 54 percent.
YouTube is only fifth on the rankings with 53 percent. And that says a lot about the popularity of the platform in Nigeria, and by extension, the popularity of the rockstars on the video-sharing platform in these parts.
Here’s Why YouTube Is Slacking In These Parts
Despite the increase in the number of internet users in Nigeria, overall internet penetration remains quite low, with only about 50 percent of the population connected to the internet, compared to the global average of 57 percent.
Besides that, many Nigerians who have access to the internet cannot afford to stream videos online, plus there’s the issue of spotty internet connections.
All these hamper YouTube usage in Nigeria, making the platform less popular and less frequently-used than other social platforms. It’s for this reason that the likes of Mark Angel get the bulk of their viewership from abroad.
“It is very discouraging for me as a video content creator,” lamented Tobi Ayeni, a YouTube creator popularly known as MissTechy, who spoke to TechPoint
“Imagine going through a lot of stress to shoot and upload a great video, only for people to watch just the first one minute or skim through because they are trying to manage the data they have,” she complained.
It’s a feeling shared by Dimma Umeh , a fast-rising Nigerian vlogger who runs a fast-growing YouTube channel where she bosses all things, fashion, makeup, and lifestyle, though, according to her, things are beginning to improve.
“I would say that adoption [of YouTube] has been gradual, especially when compared to other platforms where we often create short-form content,” she tells
“In the past two years, however, creators like me have seen a sharp increase in the number of viewers viewing from Nigeria and that gives us hope.”
Wow!! I never knew about all these statistics and Mark Angel comedy

Dude, there is no code. The first thing you learn as a computer science major is a basic calculator is not a computer. It is just an electronic device. Don't confuse the novice please.
I don't understand.... A computer is a device that accepts data, process data, store data and produce results. And you're still saying a calculator is not a computer? The oldest form of computer is an abacus ( a counting device that does simple operations like addition), pretty much a simple device and it's still called a computer.
A computer simply does calculations and that just what it does behind the scene nothing more. It seems modern form of computers have changed the view of what computers are.
