Foreign Affairs / School Teacher Sworn In As New Peruvian President. by seunlayi(m): 8:40am
Pedro Castillo was sworn in as Peru’s fifth president in three years Wednesday on the 200th anniversary of the country’s independence, promising an end to corruption and a new constitution.

The 51-year-old rural schoolteacher, who has vowed to upend a quarter century of neo-liberal government, enters the job with a lengthy to-do list: tame the coronavirus epidemic, reactivate a flagging economy and end years of political turmoil.

“I swear by the people of Peru for a country without corruption and for a new constitution,” he declared before Congress, coming back to a campaign promise to change Peru’s free-market friendly founding law.

The existing charter is a relic of ex-president Alberto Fujimori, serving jail time for corruption and crimes against humanity, and father of Castillo’s main presidential rival, the right-wing populist Keiko Fujimori.

Insisting Peru could not “remain a prisoner” of the 1993 constitution, Castillo said he would send a bill to parliament with a view to organizing a referendum on replacing it.

Castillo’s Free Peru party does not enjoy a majority in a fragmented congress, holding 37 of the 130 seats. Fujimori’s Popular Force party has 24.

Castillo was declared the victor on July 19 for a five-year term — more than six weeks after a runoff race against Fujimori, whose allegations of voter fraud then had to be reviewed by an electoral jury.

Wednesday’s swearing-in was attended by Spanish King Felipe VI, five Latin American leaders, former Bolivian president Evo Morales and the United States education secretary, among other guests.

Some 10,000 police officers were deployed in the capital Lima, and hundreds of Castillo voters came out waving banners in a show of support.

– ‘New deal’ with investors –
“This is the first time this country will be governed by a peasant,” Castillo told guests at his inauguration, sporting his trademark, traditional white sombrero and a typical black Andean suit.

He also sought to calm fears among investors, the business community and backers of Fujimori, who had sought to portray him as a communist.

“During the election campaign it was said that we are going to expropriate (assets). It is totally false. We want the economy to have order,” the new president said, adding, however, that he would be looking for a “new deal with private investors.”

Castillo is Peru’s first president in decades with no ties to the country’s political or economic elite.

He has promised reform to ensure there are “no more poor people in a rich country,” but has softened his initial campaign talk of nationalization.

He is a devout Catholic opposed to gay marriage and abortion.

Peru has been hard hit by the coronavirus epidemic. With nearly 200,000 deaths among its 32 million population, it has the world’s highest reported mortality rate.

An extended pandemic lockdown in 2020 is blamed for the loss of millions of jobs and dumping the country into recession. GDP dropped more than 11 percent.

As his chief economic adviser, Castillo has appointed World Bank economist Pedro Francke, seen as a moderating influence on his boss.

Francke vowed, in a recent interview with AFP, that “we will not expropriate, we will not nationalize, we will not impose generalized price controls, we will not make any exchange control that prevents you from buying and selling dollars or taking dollars out of the country.”

– President of all Peruvians –
It is widely hoped Castillo will bring an end to years of political upheaval in Peru.

A series of corruption scandals culminated in three different presidents in office in a single week last November.

Seven of the country’s last 10 leaders have either been convicted or are under investigation for graft, and now that she has lost, Fujimori faces an imminent corruption trial for allegedly taking illicit campaign funding for two previous presidential bids.

The election campaign has also been deeply polarizing, with often vehement public support on both sides of the political spectrum for the final two contenders.

“Castillo must rapidly position himself as a president of all Peruvians and not as a president of half of Peruvians,” political analyst Jessica Smith told AFP.

On Monday, Castillo received congratulations in a call with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken who “reinforced our shared commitment to promoting inclusive economic prosperity.”

Castillo, who has vowed to renounce his presidential salary, said Wednesday he would also not govern from the official presidential residence, Pizarro Palace, which he suggested should be turned into a museum.

Have you seen me argue anything work-related with him since he began quoting me? His work history which he claimed here is fraudulent.

Of the needlessly boastful people I have gone against and put in their places, he's not even the top 15 most boastful and megalomaniac.

These are persons I have mentioned their monikers on this thread over and over again, and whom their disgrace Nairaland still bears testimony to, with most of the threads still up.
What has he claimed to be that we haven't read on Nairaland from these disgraced persons? A globetrotting medical doctor? A veterinary doctor with an elite clientele? A top financial analyst?

These were people who fooled Nairalanders for years with their hogwash for lies and people were too ready to believe anything. ...Until their hubris made them go against me. That's when it all began to crumble for them.

Screw it! These are people I have gone against and exposed with my main monikers, my full names known and my off-Nairaland social media accounts known and still public.

It begins with fact-checking lies like Baba60+'s fictional work history. smiley

Education / Fresh Varsity Strike Looms, FG, ASUU Resume Fight On Payment Platforms by valentineuwakwe(m): 9:25am On Jul 28
• UTAS lacks tax deduction, we can’t pay without deducting tax, declares Federal Govt

The Federal Government on Tuesday denied allegations that it had breached agreements it reached with the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

The Spokesman for the Ministry of Education, Ben Gong, who stated this in an interview with The PUNCH in Abuja, also explained why the Federal Government could not adopt the University Transparency and Accountability Solution, a payment platform developed by ASUU.

According to him, UTAS does not make provision for tax deduction from salaries. He added that ASUU members cannot collect salaries without paying taxes.

Recall that the President of ASUU, Prof Emmanuel Osodeke, in an interview with The PUNCH on Monday, accused the Federal Government of violating agreements it reached with the lecturers before they called off their strike on December 24, 2020.

He specifically accused government of not paying the earned academic allowances as contained in the agreements.

He also faulted what he called the selective payment of salaries to ASUU members, saying professors in some institutions received N80,000 in June and senior lecturers got N25,000.
Osodeke said the union had been proved right in its opposition to the IPPIS. He said in June, a number of lecturers in Nigerian universities received different salaries.

But Gong, in the interview with The PUNCH, challenged the union to be more specific in its allegations that government had violated agreements.

He said the ministry was preparing an official letter to seek clarifications from ASUU over its recent pronouncements.

Gong stated, “Let them (ASUU) be specific on their accusations. Let them state the parts of the agreements which have not been met.

“Let them also mention the ministries responsible for not meeting the agreements.

“For example, if we say we want to pay them this amount of money, is it not the ministry of finance who will do the payment?

“For the UTAS platform, there is no provision on that platform for tax deduction. How do you pay someone’s salary without tax deductions? Let them list their issues.
When we saw the publications (by ASUU). We wrote to the permanent secretary to notify him of the allegations by ASUU and we pleaded with him to tell the Chairman (Executive Secretary) of the National Universities Commission to launch an inquiry.”

Besides the issue of payment, ASUU also accused the Federal Government of appointing non-graduates into the governing boards of universities.

Responding to this, Gong stated, “The permanent secretary has directed that a letter be written to ASUU. This was what the permanent secretary said, ‘Write to the ASUU president to indicate those he claimed are not graduates among the members of governing council for further investigations.’ I am already writing the publication.”

ASUU, a few day ago, issued a fresh strike notice to push for the payment of outstanding allowances and adoption of UTAS for the payment of lecturers’ salaries, instead of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System.
Recall that in March 2020, ASUU embarked on a strike following its disagreement with the Federal Government over the funding of the universities and implementation of the IPPIS.

ASUU, however, developed UTAS and had several meetings with the ministries of Finance, Education, Labour and Employment, and the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation.

Government agreed to pay outstanding salaries to the university lecturers and resolve all other issues which ASUU raised.
Before calling off its strike last year, ASUU insisted that its members would not register the IPPIS.

In response, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, said the UTAS platform would first be subjected to an integrity test.

The National Information Technology Development Agency is saddled with the responsibility of subjecting the UTAS platform to an integrity test.

When contacted on Tuesday, spokesperson for the NITDA, Hadiza Umar, said, “I do not have any update on it at the moment, I will contact the team tomorrow.”

When contacted, Spokesman for the Ministry of Finance, Budget and Planning, Yunusa Abdullahi, said, “I guess you should direct your inquiry to the Ministry of Education. Thank you.”

FG yet to meet any of our agreements – ASUU
Responding to Gong’s statement, ASUU insisted that none of the agreement it reached with the Federal Government had have been implemented.

Speaking in an interview with The PUNCH on Tuesday, the President of ASUU, Osodeke, maintained that the Memorandum of Understanding which was signed with the Federal Government in December 2020, had not been implemented.
Osodeke denied the allegations which Gong made against UTAS and the other issues he raised.

Education ministry wrong, UTAS deducts tax, it encompasses everything, ASUU insists
He said, “He talks without consulting his principals. If you call the Minister for Education he will not say all these. Was he there when UTAS was tested for him to say it doesn’t deduct tax? UTAS has passed through many stages. All the ministries where we presented UTAS, applauded it. UTAS deducts tax. The National Assembly applauded it. It was also presented at the office of the AGF. UTAS encompasses everything you can talk about in a university, not just about salaries alone, even human resources. He doesn’t know what he is talking about. If you want to know the real details of what is happening contact the Executive Secretary of National Universities Commission, ministers of Education and Labour. They all have a copy of the MoU we signed in December.

FG yet to pay our members – Union

“They know that UTAS, which is the major one has not been implemented. The revitalisation fund has not been released. They agreed that they would mainstream our earned academic allowances into the salary system in 2021. We are in August already and preparing 2022 budget, yet nothing has been done. They said by December they would pay the backlog they are owing our members and till now they have not paid a number of them.

“They agreed that they would review the NUC law to ensure that no government would wake up one day and be proliferating universities, they haven’t gone to the National Assembly. “

Politics / Biafra: Open Letter To Alphonsus Uche Okafor-mefor(video) by fenibak: 6:31pm On Jul 27
This is one of the hardest article that I would ever write because it took me almost 5 months to write this because I really don't know what to say to you and when I first started and I heard the story of why you left Ipob I supported you and I even wrote an article about it here https://www.biafranboys.org/why-nnamdi-kanu-must-appoint-deputy where I told Kanu to appoint another deputy because he should not hold all the powers in Ipob, because of situations like today and I was right, by now a deputy would have taken over the helm of affairs of Ipob, so i supported you for leaving Ipob since they know longer valued your input.



When I was looking for a pro-Biafran group to join I came across you guys and I started following and I was listening but what I noticed is that you guys talk about Kanu 24/7. come on, even the people would see you as Anti-Biafra, look I am not saying don't attack Kanu but let it be on the level of 20% and give Fulanis 80%.all you guys do is talk about Kanu and you do nothing on the ground.



I was going through a brilliant reply you gave to asari when he said Igbos are Ijaw slaves, asari is a pig and you are a refined man just like Kanu, asari is a tout, I still prefer tompolo, asari is a loudmouth.



I just learned that in life a man must have Principles, how would you go back to asari dokubo?and the worse part is that you are now a media guy for asari. It is shameful, I know you are not built for the military side of freedom fighting.



I feel bad that a man like you would go back and work with a mentally unstable man like asari and the truth is that you need a strategist around you, talking about Kanu now that he is in prison is a very wrong move, if you had stayed mute or issued a statement in support of Kanu it would have made the people love you more, but instead you have missed that opportunity to unite Biafrans.



It stinks of fish smelling hypocrisy for you to accuse Nnamdi Kanu of pursuing an armed struggle and you go behind and start working with asari a militant and asari said the reason why he left IYC was that he wanted an armed struggle and he said the one gunshot is more effective than a thousand years of harmonization and he said they are going for the gunshot and he did and that got him pipeline contracts, talking didn't get him what he wanted.



Lastly, I want you to know that we are dealing with the descendants of Usman Dan Fodio, I attach a link to the reply that you gave asari dokubo here https://www.biafranboys.org/uche-mefor-and-asari-dokubo-why-man when he said Igbos are Ijaw slaves, just to refresh your memory.it would have been better if your group did not get involved with asari dokubo a man that you beautifully destroyed in that letter, this shows that you have no principles. my advice to you is to change your strategy.UDO

It took hospital management quite a task to get through this. She is barely 20 and dying and what she needed to foster her treatment was just blood, the family kept insisting no blood but doctor knows she is an adult and can speak for herself and she inquired from her if she want to be alive and she said yes, though she could barely talk but she craved for anything that will keep her alive. At this time, just because she agreed on blood transfusion they all abadoned her, with what i saw at the NNPC medical center i doubet if she can go more than 24 hours.
Long story cut short, she was giving blood and she made it.
Presently, she is among the non witness member of her family.

Culture / Re: Is It True Edo's (Bini people) Are The Lord's Of Most Southern Lands. by ThickSharon123(f): 11:32pm On Jul 26
samuk:


Benin hardly wrote her history, infact it wasn't till the middle of the 20th century that a Benin person made the first attempt to write down Benin history. The best the Benin did in documenting her pre colonial history was in her artefacts.

The greatness, the influence of the Oba and the extent of the Benin empire were independently documented by Europeans who were actually eyewitnesses to what they wrote down since the 1400s.

For example Ida is in the middle belt of Nigeria, which is much further away from the east to Benin. In the 1500s the Europeans wrote about the Benin Ida war which the Benin worn against the Attah of Igala.

In 1602 a Dutchman wrote about how Lagos was already a military garrison with Benin soldiers that daily reports back to the Oba in Benin city.

It was documented that the Oba of Benin control a distance of 200 miles along the coast up to Dahomey. I am sure you have heard of the bight of Benin.

It was documented that the Oba of Benin had a standing army and could mobilise a military force of 100,000 soldiers in 24 hours.

It was documented that Europeans and Dutch mercenaries served in the Benin army. Benin was the first significant kingdom to acquire guys and canons, these with European mercenaries serving in Benin army greatly helped the Oba expand the Benin kingdom.

There was no force that was able to invade and defeat Benin since her written history began in the 1400s until 1897 when British destroyed the city.

Irrespective of what anyone may feel today, it doesn't change the fact that Benin history was independently written by Europeans eyewitnesses throughout the centuries beginning from the 1400s to 1800s.

Are you aware that Rome which is just a small part of Italy today once rule most part of Europe and part of North Africa? Infact Rome colonised Britain for 400 years. What national festival does Britain, Egypt and other part of Europe Rome once colonised have today to commemorate or celebrate Roman emperors or Rome. The difference between Africans and Europeans is Europeans acknowledges their historical past whilst Africa tries to downplay the achievements of their fellow Africans who is not of the same tribes as them.

Benin history is world history that wasn't written by Africans, so it's authenticity will always be acknowledged by serious historians because it was documented by eyewitnesses.

Have you read Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe autobiography about Benin/Onitsha relationship?

Some part of southern Nigeria that didn't directly feel the impact of the Oba of Benin rule were still greatly influenced by Benin people who migrated to those places. These Benin immigrants always become the ruling elites of those tribes, the reason you keep hearing various tribes across southern and middle belt Nigeria tracing their ancestral roots back to Benin.


Now when you talk of the Roman empire, their remnants can still be found in most parts of Africa and in Europe, one example in Africa is "The Great Alexandria" seaport of North Africa and more.

In Britain we have many that can be mentioned, and the Britons are proud that Rome is part of their history, followed with France, and the rest.

Now, the Bini people claim they ruled and ruled large expanse of land. They have no common cultural attire with the Igbo, language none, festival none, and all...that's one.

Secondly, the Oba seemed like he was thirsty to have more subjects under him, and as a king his worthy for that. The east was rich with not only resources that could be used for the Obas expansive agenda for that time, but people that can be applied to the military, why did he forsake them? The east, very well seems untouched to your Oba, in which you claim Igbos was under his rule.

The Obas main interest was the west, but I guess he tried but was resisted by them westerners.

And for the Onitsha and Bini relationship that you said doctor Nnamdi talked about, if they were so close, is it that they didn't know that there were more people like the Anambra people, and the Oba could conquer...my dear, this is all logic.

Using placards and bronze all isn't proof of rulership my dear, it was written by men (and please I'm not refuting that,)

But what bewilders me is the level of pristinity of the east when it comes to Benin. And if they influenced Onitshas why don't they speak a corrupted form of Benin at least, if they were in a so-called peaceful and harmonious relationship. It all doesn't make sense.
Health / Re: Any Sure Way To Conceive A Male Child??? by shadeyinka(m): 9:03pm On Jul 26
flawlesskayc:
Hi all.

Has anyone worked towards or tried conceiving a particular gender and it worked??
Kindly drop tips, advise e.t.c.

Ps - Please Don’t come here preaching how every child is a child!.
WE ALL KNOW THAT!.

Thank you.

I’m a mom of 2 beautiful girls & would love to have a son next.
The quote below by Ugaboy has solved your problem of increasing the probability of having a male child. the oly addition I will add is that
1. have sex ONLY AFTER when ovulation is CONFIRMED as against having sex close to ovulation (some will recommend that you start with 24 hours after ovulation to start with for a few months: if no conception, reduct to 12 hours after for a few more cycles and if no conception, go for six hours AFTER)
2. Adopt an after sex position that keep the semen close (by gravity to the cervix)..best time at Night so that you can sleep in that position
3. Have orgasm a few times before the real sex (the wetness and orgasims cause dilation of the cervix)
*Expect a few missed timings because you are having sex only after ovulation is confirmed
Even after all these, there is NO guarantee you have only increased the probability of having males
The only guarantee is when you do IVF with sex determination as objective

The The Shettle Method work but your genetics and that of your husband is also very important e.g.
1. There are some men who produce more male than female spermatozoa
2. There are some women whose reproductive system favour the male spermatozoa than the female (naturally alkaline and conducive)

Ugaboy:

The Shettle Method
One widely suggestion to increase your chances of having a boy is a conception plan called the Shettles method, which was developed by Landrum B. Shettles around 1960.

Shettles studied sperm to determine what might impact the speed of the sperm. (After all, the sperm that wins the race and fertilizes the egg determines the gender.) He considered timing of intercourse, positions, and the pH of body fluids to see which may have an impact on gender.

Key points of the Shettles method include:

1. sex close to ovulation
2. sperm deposited close to the cervix using positions allowing for deep penetration
3. alkaline environment in the vagina
4. woman having an orgasm first

How effective is the Shettles method? Well, it depends who you talk to. Shettles claims an overall 75 percent success rate in the current edition of his book, and there are plenty of people who claim that they successfully conceived a boy or girl using his method.

On the other hand, some older research found that sex 2 to 3 days after ovulation may not lead to pregnancy at all. And another (also dated) study suggestedTrusted Source that X and Y chromosomes do not have the meaningful shape differences Shettles believed existed.

At the end of the day, it is God who gives children. Thank God you have yours (male or females) without tears!
Shalom

Yousef's DS

You seem nervous?

He has been overwhelmed, and he is still trying to connect with everyone in the house. He feels different, he hopes he doesn't make them uncomfortable with how he operates *mentions something about him being from the North*....

Biggie asks him to take a deep breath, he does.

This is your diary Session, as you can see, the Chair is quite big (basically asking him to relax) Do you need a moment to gather yourself?

He says he thinks he is ready.

Biggie reminds him this is a social experiment, and people of different backgrounds were chosen. He need not walk on eggshells amongst housemates and his beliefs are to be respected, and celebrated, in some cases. He should feel at home.

Let's talk about the other housemates?

He connected first with Saga, Saga is cool and he has been himself the whole time. He thinks there is a negative reaction he feels, and he feels a lot of people are pretending, he can't tell because he hasn't been getting closer to them. He thinks a lot of people are telling lies and he can't be comfortable, when things are not to his own understanding. He is trying to balance it, and be himself. He is just processing it and how he is going to be an amazing friend and connect with all the cliques and everyone in the house. He will take some days to get to know them all and then free himself and his soul, and talk more with the housemates. He is also maneuvering himself through the house and learning of it. That is basically how he feels at this moment.

A few moments ago, he spoke of his aversion for pretense and lies. Who does he think are the pretenders and liars?

Sammie is saying a story he feels did not happen, because he is trying to make the world feel sad for him, and he knows he is trying to play his game. He respects the game, but he does not like the way he is shut off. He hates to hear lies or people telling him what to do, and he feels like he is leading him to the wrong path. Boma, he was very energetic towards him, when he first came in, but after the 24-hours something changed, and he now tries to dodge the conversations when he is talking to him. He knows they are both models, so, he thought they would bond on that. Sometimes, he feels Boma is pretending not to respond to him.

Isolation experience and lesson?

He was thinking of what the other housemates would be like, and how he can make himself as fun as possible and how to hang out with everyone, despite where he is coming from. He hoped some of his things would not make them feel uncomfortable. One of his challenges was contact with the outside world. He kept thinking of what people outside were thinking, he also was concerned if the house would be a house for everyone, and if people would receive him positively or negatively.

Biggie says the best way to show the world that the house is for everyone, is by being comfortable. It seems he thinks too much of what people think of him, and what would make others comfortable. He tells him to prioritise himself, and be comfortable in the house. He asks if he has anything else to discuss.

He has a lot of thoughts, but for now, there is nothing else, until his next session.

End of Diary Session.

Biggie says if he needs a moment to gather himself, he may do so before returning to the house. He says he understands and will think about it (I doubt he understood though)

Left, but back now...


Biggie: You seem abit nervous.

Yousef: I’ve been alone and still trying to connect with people in the house, I feel so different and hope I don’t make other housemates uncomfortable with how I am.

Biggie: Yousef, take a deep breath. This is your diary session, as you can see the chair is quite big.

Yousef; Readjusted.

Biggie: Do you need a moment to gather yourself?

Yousef; Yea, I’m think I’m ready.

Biggie: You must remember, this is a social experiment. People of different backgrounds were deliberately chosen, you are all guest here, you are all equal, you don’t need to walk on eggshells around your fellow housemates, your belief are to be respected and in some cases, celebrated. So kindly feel at home.

Biggie continues...

Let’s talk about your fellow housemates.

Yousef: Firstly, i think I connected easily with Saga, I feel a lot of people are pretending but I can’t fully tell because I haven’t gotten closer to them, but I feel a lot of them are selling stories for pity, I’m an honest person and I know I’m a little bit difficult, it makes me uncomfortable but I try my best to be an amazing friend and also connect to people in the house. I try my best to free myself and talk more with the housemates, I’m also trying to show myself to the world. Basically, that’s how I fell at the moment.

Biggie: A few moments ago, you spoke about pretenders and liars, who do you think tells lies a lot.

Yousef: Uhhhm! I think [Didnt get the name] is trying to sell stories for sympathy and I feel he’s just trying to play his game. I just feel he’s leading me into the wrong part. I think Boma, when I first came in, he was energetic, but after 24 hours, something changed about him, from talking to ye ye ye, trying to dodge conversations. I also know both of us are models, I thought we could relate. I feel he’s pretending and not responding to me.

Biggie: Yousef, before you entered the house, what did you learn from the isolation.

Yousef: Well, on the lockdown, I think I was thinking how can I make myself as much as possible, how to mingle with everyone, I was also thinking about how the outside world will see me as, was trying to balance the whole thing. I think some of my challenges were how to cope with people, will it be positive or negative, will it be something better? I feel and was actually thinking if my character and aims will be positive or negative.

Biggie: Yousef, the best way to show the world that the house if for everyone is by being comfortable, it may seem as thou, you think too much, it may seems as thou you are trying to prioritize others by making them comfortable, be yourself, be comfortable.

Biggie: Do you have anything to discuss with Big brother?

Yousef: No


Biggie: Your diary session has come to an end.

Yousef's DS

You seem nervous?

He has been overwhelmed, and he is still trying to connect with everyone in the house. He feels different, he hopes he doesn't make them uncomfortable with how he operates *mentions something about him being from the North*....

Biggie asks him to take a deep breath, he does.

This is your diary Session, as you can see, the Chair is quite big (basically asking him to relax) Do you need a moment to gather yourself?

He says he thinks he is ready.

Biggie reminds him this is a social experiment, and people of different backgrounds were chosen. He need not walk on eggshells amongst housemates and his beliefs are to be respected, and celebrated, in some cases. He should feel at home.

Let's talk about the other housemates?

He connected first with Saga, Saga is cool and he has been himself the whole time. He thinks there is a negative reaction he feels, and he feels a lot of people are pretending, he can't tell because he hasn't been getting closer to them. He thinks a lot of people are telling lies and he can't be comfortable, when things are not to his own understanding. He is trying to balance it, and be himself. He is just processing it and how he is going to be an amazing friend and connect with all the cliques and everyone in the house. He will take some days to get to know them all and then free himself and his soul, and talk more with the housemates. He is also maneuvering himself through the house and learning of it. That is basically how he feels at this moment.

A few moments ago, he spoke of his aversion for pretense and lies. Who does he think are the pretenders and liars?

Sammie is saying a story he feels did not happen, because he is trying to make the world feel sad for him, and he knows he is trying to play his game. He respects the game, but he does not like the way he is shut off. He hates to hear lies or people telling him what to do, and he feels like he is leading him to the wrong path.

Self harm ehn? That thought passed my mind when I heard about the 12 tattoos. Same with Aarin’s 24 piercings…

Brave of her to talk about the mental illness. I hope BB house will not make her regress….

I hope so too, Fans toxicity is the last thing she needs for her mental health.

Funny it was Arin that went to encourage her after she told her story and went inside to cry.

And it is matured for now for Saga to remove the ideology of playing games on her.

Religion / Re: Russia’s Mysterious Campaign Against Jehovah’s Witnesses by MaxInDHouse(m): 6:50am On Jul 26
danielmadueke:
I think that the ban of Jehovah witness grp by the Supreme court of Russia is in order. It was a matter of National Secursecurity threat. CIA was using Jehovah's witness to infiltrate Russia. Alot of these so called Jehovah's witnesses in Russia are CIA agents so the ban is in order.
The highlighted is the funniest comment ever made in the history of mankind!
Guy i was a Muslim and an agent before i began studying with JWs. I have been to so many countries so i had to work with so many other agents of the intelligence from different nations across the world.
Our training and other prerequisites for becoming an agent totally contradicts the beliefs of JWs who strongly oppose the idea of carrying weapons or training how to kill! Micah 4:3
So no single JW with the intelligence throughout the whole wide world!
But you're on track because that's the same report a senior colleague told me the Orthodox Churches in Ghana brought to Jerry Rawlings decades ago. He said they were sent to investigate, as agents of the intelligence they had to pretend as interested persons so as to penetrate the deepest places and secrets of Jehovah's Witnesses but by the end of the day the agency lost 5 of their best guys to the JWs! undecided
WHY? Before they could complete their mission many of them have become convince that JWs is the one and only true Christian group because they had to study deep before they can be allowed to get to the root of everything JWs are doing. About 10 out of the agents became appointed servants in JWs that means they must have known all the secret of the organization and five of them decided to continue serving the God of JWs.
My colleague said his best friend (late) wrote a letter and waited until the day he had to deliver a talk (preach before the members as JWs do say it) that was the day he read his resignation letter that he's not a JW and he will never live his religion (Islam) no matter what the JWs infuse in his heart. The audience were shocked when this man walked out of the Kingdom Hall and never returned!
But the other five are still serving as JWs today.
My colleague was relating this experience to discourage me from having any dealings with JWs i quote him "They have some charms that will make you forget all your dreams and career in life, and before you know it you're already helping them to sell books and the worst part is you will find yourself doing so with the greatest joy, do you think that is normal?" Matthew 16:24; Luke 18:22

Today i'm one of JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES and always happy that i no more see people as suspects as agents do view everyone around them, today i know that the only set of enemies that needed to be arrested and chained are Satan and his demons {Ephesians 6:12} so no matter what anyone think, say or do against us today we just take them for puppets in the hands of Satan and his demons therefore our heartfelt prayers for them is:

"Jehovah, please forgive them because they don't know what they are doing" Luke 23:34; Act 7:60

May you have PEACE! smiley

Romance / How Did You Get HIV? by Lostchild(m): 11:39pm On Jul 25
Anonymos
Answered Saturday, September 22, 2018

I got infected in 2006 when I was 18 and just about to finish my high school, looking forward to uni the following year... My then boyfriend who was way older than me and who probably knew infected me...

I could want to blame him for this, but I had a responsibility to make sure we either get tested before we have unprotected sex... But I didn't... And it cost me big time...

I could also try to justify the circumstances that led me to make such a decision to even date and older guy... Let alone give him my virginity... Before then I had only dated guys my age and we had not gone past the stolen kisses and occasional stolen moments of intimacy... Then I met this guy... Older guy... Exactly 24 years older than I am...

He seemed so mature and loving unlike the younger boys I had dated... He was even willing to help my sister move to his country to get a job... I think that's part of the reason why I thought he was worth giving my virginity... And boy was I wrong...

We did the deed a few times.... Now that I am older and wiser there wasn't really much to it... But to an 18year old experienced girl it was everything... Soon afterwards he became distant and I had a painful breakup... No reasons why and no closure... Just him distancing himself and that was it...

5 months later my high school results were out and I had passed so I could proceed to university to study law... I remember one day walking past the hiv counseling and testing center I decided to walk in and get tested... Not that I was ill.. Far from it... I just felt compeled to and I got the shock of my life... Imagine being 18 And hiv positive!

I went to my mom's work and cried my eyes out, we both did... Thereafter we called my late sister who had already migrated to the other country after this guy had helped her... We all cried and something prepared me and I immediately accepted my fate...

I would sometimes have moments of rage... I even questioned the existance of a God who would allow something like this to happen... I felt sorry for my mom who single handedly raised us after my dad passed on when I was 5...

This totally messed up whatever relationships I had thereafter.... How do you open up and tell someone... talk about the stigma that surrounding this virus... I wondered if I would ever get married... Have kids... Lead a normal life.. Worse still my mom could not afford my university fees so I had to set aside dreams of ever becoming a lawyer and have to move to the other country where was sister was and look for menial jobs....

I eventually met my husband in 2011 who accepted me as I was although it hasn't been easy... My husband and both my kids are hiv negative.. All thanks to the ART treatment... My viral load is undetectable... I look after myself well and if I didn't tell you you'd never know... I take my meds religiously...

In the past I have had days when my husband would rub it in my face that I am high positive and he is not... The real circumstances that led me to this virus he doesn't know... It hurt so much at first... But now not as much and he has since stopped using that to hurt me... This year I'll be 31 and living positively for 13 years... I have also decided to go back to university and get that law degree

Religion / Aspiring To Higher Levels? by kpakpandoN(m): 7:26am On Jul 25
There are various levels in life. When we talk about health, we have those who are sick; even among the sick, there are levels of sickness some are sick, some are very sick while some have terminal sicknesses. Some may even be dying. When we talk about wealth, there are the destitute, the poor, the comfortable, the rich, the very rich, the wealthy and the flourishing. The flourishing are those who, according to the Bible lend to nations. There are also those who have so much abundance that it is difficult to imagine. In 2 Chronicles 9:20 we read:
“And all the drinking vessels of king Solomon were of gold…”

There are also various levels of joy. There are those who are sad, there are sympathizers, there are those who have joy and those with great joy. The Bible in Psalm 16:11 talks about the fullness of joy that is available in the presence of God. The Bible also talks about joy unspeakable in 1 Peter 1:8

There are also varying levels of victory. There is victory after a fight, victory without a fight and victory when the enemy miraculously disappears. There is also a kind of victory recorded in Psalms 23:5 : Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. There is nothing as glorious as rejoicing in the presence of our enemies.

In any aspect of life, everyone is at one level or the other. It doesn’t matter where you are, there is a higher level you can get to. Moving from one level to the other involves three possibilities: One, you want to move to the next level unassisted. Two, you want to move to the next level with assistance. Three and lastly, you are trying to move to the next level, but facing resistance.

It is easier to move to the next level of your life when you have the Lord Jesus Christ as your ally. The Bible says the blessing of the Lord maketh rich and addeth no sorrow with it Proverbs 10:22. Surrender your life to Christ now so that He can take you to the next level. No one can resist or stop Jesus from doing whatever He is determined to do, according to Psalms 24:1-10. The plan of God is to take you to the next level according to Jeremiah 29:11 which says:
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
Written by Pastor E.A. Adeboye.

RuudVanNisteroy:

Your income determines which tax bracket you fall under. He was under the highest tax bracket at 24% and paid millions in Rivers and Lagos state during the times he lived in those fantastically corrupt states.

If you work for a private company , the tax comes off your paycheck every month. For example in Lagos 10% of taxes paid by private sector employees is paid to Tinubu's Alpha Beta account.

Mr, your dad is not the only person who worked with a big firm in Nigeria.. Is Nigeria government both federal and states have credible auditor to determine how much a big company made as profit annually not to talk of the workers?

And please cut that crap of Lagosians paying 10% taxes to Alpha Beta.. Is Alpha Betta not a company being paid for the service they provide or the 10% is just free money?

Is it only Lagos state that Alpha Beta is operating? Are they offering the service for other state for free?

Romance / My Wife Still Left Me After Forgiving Her For Cheating by Loveandromance: 11:45pm On Jul 24
I have been married for 9 years now. God blessed me with a good woman that has supported me and my vision for years. We have four children and I am a blessed man for sure. The issue started when after our third child, I told my wife that we have to stop having children cos we have to manage to care for the ones God has given us.

My wife said she wants 2 boys and 2 girls. We had 2 boys and 1 girl. I told her no. But this this woman agreed and later, got pregnant with the fourth child which turned out to be a boy . I was so angry cos we agreed. She lied to me that she was on contraceptive. I wont lie, we are not poor but having 3 children was not easy. And now, with 4th…things became very tough.

To make things worse, I started to have challenges at work and lost my job. I tried to find another job but eventually took a job with lower pay than the former. And this job was taking all my time cos its a one man business kind of job. So, my home and ministry suffered because I was always at work even on weekends.

My wife felt neglected and tried to talk to me about it but I told her, it was her fault for having plenty children and now, I cannot be there to support as I should. We quarreled alot. I didn’t like that but to avoid the quarrels, I stayed away from home more and more. My wife complained of me neglecting her s*xual needs but for some reason, I just lost interest in s8x. Maybe I was tired of having babies and responsibilities ,so I blanked away from the idea of s8x.

My wife became hysterical, saying I was cheating on her. That if I am not sleeping with her, then I was sleeping with someone else. To be frank, I actually made a mistake once but I did not sleep with the person. In my spending more time at work, I almost slept with a colleague but God gave me strength to stop before we went too far. But that was not the reason I did not want to sleep with my wife.

I just really got frustrated with work, finances, and the constant quarreling. I was avoiding trouble at home cos it became very uncomfortable for me to come home and not hear one complain or nagging or shouting.

After a couple of months, I noticed my wife changed. She stopped talking to me or calling me. She would send the children to call my phone instead of talking to me. I realized that she was keeping malice with me and my ego did not allow me make an effort to make things work. Yes, I tried a little but soon as I touched her, to try to make love to her, she would fling my hand away and scream at me.

That was when I decided to leave her alone. We lived like that for months. Until, one day, I closed from work early because I was not feeling fine. I took sick leave and got home early. I called my wife on the phone but she did not pick up. I got home and decided to surprise her,so I did not knock, I used my key and went inside.

What I saw was just unbelievable. My wife was stark naked on the sitting room floor and was using something on herself and was having a video call with a man.

Romance / I Got Entangled In An Open Marriage But Jealousy Is Tearing Me Up by Loveandromance: 11:35pm On Jul 24
It started about a year ago. This lady (lets call her Gloria) was employed to work in our company. When she resumed with us, it was obvious that she could not do the job. I don’t know how she was selected but within the first two weeks, it was very clear to everyone that she did not know what she was doing.

From afar, I watched how she struggled with her job. I felt sorry for her. So, I went to her and asked her if she needed help. She just burst into tears. I then promised to help her learn the job very quickly.

So for the next couple of weeks, I was like her mentor, putting her through the job. She was a fast learner …thank God. In between showing her how to do the work, we gisted a little sometimes. I found out that she was referred by her uncle for the job, who is friends with our MD..cos there was no way she could have qualified for this job by the normal standards.

I also got to know that she was engaged to be married. I had no intention of getting involved with her but having worked together, we became close naturally. Sometimes, we took same transport home after work. Sometimes, she would order same Uber for us. The Uber would drop me off cos my place was closer and take her home.

Sometimes, I saw that our colleagues jokingly called me her office husband but she always made it clear that she was engaged and there was nothing between us. I was her go-to for anything in the office and she was happy that I always had her back.

After like 4 month after, she ordered an Uber to take us home after work one day. We started the journey and she was like, hmm..one of these days, she will come and know where I stay. I was like, ah…will your fiancé not object…she said no…that her fiancé trusts her and he is not the jealous type.

As a matter of fact, as we journeyed, it began to rain and when I got to my place, she said she would like to come in and know my place that night. I was like, oh but when will you get home, she said no worries…she will get another Uber. So, she got down from the Uber with me to my place.

On getting to my place, I showed her my apartment and she was like, wont you invite me in? I looked at her…with questioning eyes and she asked me if I don’t want her to come in or if my girlfriend will nto allow it. I told her I don’t have a girlfriend, so she came in. She liked my apartment and complimented the way it was furnished.

Next she asked if I wont offer her a drink. I told her I am a bachelor, I did not store anything in the house. She strolled into my kitchen and saw a cartoon of noodles. She offered to make me noodles. So, I ran out to a shop in my street to buy eggs and sardine for the noodles.

By the time I returned, she was in the kitchen making preparations. I thought she just wanted to make a quick dinner for us,eat and go. But after she made the noodles, which was veyr delicious…she made no move to leave. Infact…she cleaned up the dishes and asked if its ok if she spends a little time chatting with me. I said but its getting late and she was like…if she cant find an Uber, she can spend the night.

My eyes popped wide open. I now understood what she really wanted. So, I relaxed and we got chatting and she said she really wanted to thank me for putting her through at work. I said no problem. She asked to use the bathroom and I showed her. Next thing she returned from the bathroom in Nothing but her underwear (bra and pants) I was confused.

This lady who was supposed to be engaged started to kiss me and do all kinds of crazy thing. I went along cos I was by this time going crazy from what she was doing to me. Then shocking, as things went further,…I found out that she was a virgin. I stopped and told her I could not do it. I told her to keep it for her fiancé.

Then she told me she was indeed keeping it for her fiancé but they are having issues cos she found out that he cheated on her. So, clearly, she wanted revenge. I tried to talk sense into her but she said she would rather give her virginity to me for all I done for her …that I have been like a very good friend and saved her job. I told her this was too much to say thank you but this girl, virgin or not…knew how to do things to my manhood and I lost the debate.

Emusan:

Stop exposing your ignorance up and down.
Jesus' statement there didn't mean He HASN'T ASCENDED TO THE FATHER BEFORE that time but it's not YET the time to ASCEND FINALLY as He won't be SEEN again until the second coming.


" Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father,
to my God and your God."

A) Notice the bold didn't say I have not yet ascended to the Father Finally ?

There is nothing like Finally in the text

B) the highlighted didn't say I am ascending ONCE MORE ?

Emusan lie will not kill you.

The absurdity of your idea is everybody go to heaven when they die. Clearly spirit of man is not a person.


The Bible says, Jesus didn't come to HELP ANGELS

That's why I first asked you, what is the essence of Jesus preaching to ALREADY CONDEMNED ANGELS for everlasting destruction? Which you codedly ignored.

I again asked, what is the impact of the message Jesus preached to this angels who are already CONDEMNED TO EVERLASTING DESTRUCTION? you pretended as you you didn't see that.

Finally, I've been asking, what is the MESSAGE Jesus preached to THIS ANGELS? Which you turned a blind eyes, as if you didn't see the question just because you know your lies will be exposed once again.


The Bible said This are spirits in Prison who disobeyed in the days of Noah. . No man was promised Prison as a reward of their sin. It's more absurd when you realize this create unequal punishment for sinners , and make God partial. Prison is not for any human, it's for spirit angels chained in darkeness


Evidence that Human spirit is a person is that The spirit KNOWS what is in the mind of Man. ONLY A CONSCIOUS BEING have that ability.

This means every body go to heaven , agree ?





Evidence that Holy Spirit is a person abound throughout the scripture.
As:
1. The Holy Spirit was called "HE"
2. The Holy Spirit said to BE ANOTHER ADVOCATE, if Holy Spirit isn't a person, then Jesus can't talk about ANOTHER advocate.
3. The Holy Spirit Has MIND
4. the Holy Spirit has WILL
5. The Holy Spirit can be GRIEVED
6. the Holy Spirit is grouped along The Father and the Son, in many places in the scripture i.e Matt 28:19 & 1 John 5:7.
7. The Holy Spirit can be talked to and speak.
8. The Holy Spirit can teach.

And despite all this holy spirit cannot know what the Son doesn't know. Creating the question : Is holy spirit among the nobody knows at Matt 24:36 ? Or it was omitted as it's not a person ?

Hello nairalanders, pls does anyone know anything about getting admisson into a masters programme in belgium including visa processing and other related proceedings. Any info will appreciated. Thanks

If you’re planning to travel to Abuja to authenticate your documents at the Federal Ministry of Education and also at the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs, please sit down and recalculate

I can do that for you at a very fair and unbeatable price and return your documents safely to you (GIG Logistics).

The processes can be done on your behalf by a third party. I repeat: No need spending heavily on hotel accommodation, transportation fares, and feeding for SOMETHING THAT CAN BE DONE AND COMPLETED IN 24 HOURS.

Send me a PM let’s talk.
