Services not Retail trading is key to surviving the harsh economy, Entrepreneurs' watch!

All hail Alphasoars . . .

How has the soaring gone, I feel steady progress. I have been hearing that some of our Excellencies have gone for a London based sightseeing or rather inquiry based visit to the Abuja house in London.
Good-luck to Nigerians. I don't really know what our country has turned into. Which one do we believe, our president is healthy and at same time receiving treatment or our president is hale and hearty but he cannot speak to his countrymen on a televised live video call. I am not a politician for now and I don’t speak for or against any Nigerian party.

The only thing I have to say is that anywhere he is, if sick I wish him quick recovery, if hale and hearty, let the Airplane that took him there bring him back safe. Udo!!!

Economy is bad, has been the lyrics from the most populous song we have been singing for the past 24 months. The economy really has had its toll on all. It is like the adage about war, in that it is ill wind that blows no one good. Businesses have closed and institutions that cannot bear the heat have parked up.
For every, problem in life I so much believe that there is a fruitful solution to it. It is just a matter of Knowing (Knowledge) and approach (Application).

We have had calls by agencies and pleas from the government for entrepreneurs to take over the economy as that will boost the economy and grow the country's GDP. That is however a fact that cannot be disputed. Entrepreneurship bothers on so many things and becoming one has got a lot of things to consider. As you consider yourself an owner of a business enterprise that either deals with goods merchandise or sell of services, you are already seeing yourself as an entrepreneur.

However, I have the following thoughts and contribution.

And if any man hunger, Let him eat at home!

All hail Alphasoar . . .

Howdy all. Hope everyone is having fun, knowing fully well that having fun and being happy is limited to a particular day of the week or month.
Today, we are at the door of our HealthCheck section. To our bachelors and spinsters, this post na for us oh.
Let Soar, shall we . . .

The greatest Apostle of the Bible, in one of his writings, gave us the post topic for today. At the time of writing his text, he was referring to people who come to take the Lord's Supper on empty stomach. He was advising them to eat at home before coming to avoid one or two reactions.
But on another hand, he was advising Us on a serious issue. An issue that concerns the body and soul. For us that are not married, we have one thing in common, Money plus Future. But we totally forget how to get money by taking care of our body.
Breakfast has been termed the best meal you could treat yourself with. And in the bid to get this treat, many people who cannot spend little time in their homes to prepare meals resort to patronizing road side food sellers. Like Paul the Apostle will say 'let him eat at home, it is highly recommended to cook your food yourself.

Hazards abound in taking in food that you don't know the type of environment it was prepared. Was the environment hygienic enough? So many road side food vendors do not take adequate care when preparing food the sell to the general public, so it is done anyhow. 
A story of teenager who developed kidney stones and it was discovered he developed the complications as a result of constantly patronizing a woman by the side of his school for food almost on a daily basis.

Today, the main subject is eating at home. Being a bachelor does not entail that you must be buying food everyday from other people whereas you could actually take out some time and prepare yourself a great meal. With my little observations, |I have also found out that eating outside of one’s home could be an addiction. And when it thus comes to this, where it becomes an addiction, the health of the individual is going to be at a great risk.

Ijele

All hail Alphasoars . . .

Howdy all? Who else has been listening to the news lately? Our own dear Lai Mohammed, the Honourable Minister for Information and Culture has received many backlashes following his declaration that Nigerian trying to shoot their movies or music videos abroad will not enjoy a smiling face from the Federal Government.
"We cannot continue to go to South Africa or any other country to produce and then send them back to be consumed in Nigeria" was part of the statements credited to him on the issue.

I think the South Africa issue has got to do with the recently concluded Big Brother Naija that was hosted in South Africa which was supposedly a Nigerian thingy. Oh well, what do I know as regarding the entertainment industry. He has being largely criticized by the Entertainment industry key players.

My main talk today is not about what they are saying but something else I find very interesting and wish to share one or two of my views, still on the entertainment industry.

Some weeks ago, a popular singer released his album with title as mine. That's normal and overdue for his fans. Something caught my attention while browsing on YouTube and finding someone with name as Semah G. Weifur.


He has been a fan of the artist for some time now having in mind to meet him in person someday. it happened that earlier this year, the singer was having a tour in his country, Liberia. As his luck caught a better part of the argument, March 2017 he finally met in person his idol. He performed one of his songs live in the singer’s presence.

May 2017, about two months later he, Semah was in Nigeria to see his music idol. They had good moments. Funny enough, last week of June, the singer released his album and guess who was featured in the last track, Semah G. Weifur.

Designing for the Future

Design is the skeletal framework done by a designer that shows an intending structure. Of recent, many areas have inquired and adopted design abilities due to advancement in technology and science. The years are fast revealing many design varieties. We have moved from Pencil on Paper designs to 2D designs and then to 3D and so on.
These varieties of design have in time revealed to designers in different areas the ability to control an installation or a building before it is eventually built.
In this post, I will be focusing on buildings and architectural designs. So let us flow together. Shall we?
 
Source
Design technologies have made designing buildings and architectural edifice easier. With this, architectural designs, if not properly observed will adversely affect the property owners and the environment in the nearest future due to many facts such as climate change, modifiability and maintenance of such edifices. The future taken into consideration, the following should constitute decision making guidelines.

Idiosyncrasies of Social Media

All hail Alphasoars . . .

How has the soaring gone? I hope good.

Social media has gone from communication to confusion. When Daniel in the Bible said, Oh Lord, to us belong confusion of faces" (Daniel 9:8), I think he was actually referring to this age. The time where what we see in the media is either the adulterated or fake of the original.

I joined Facebook in 2012 (guess so). I never thought it was something used not only for information and message sharing but for show of whatever nonsense one have got (food, cloth, property). Is this the real reason why Facebook was created.

As the days go by, we find that social media channels are becoming funnier and dirtier. It has been a means of many social vices which might not be committed in actually sense.

Respect died many years ago since we can always sit at the back of our mobile devices and use our fingers and insult our elders without nothing happening. This in real sense has made the respect known in Africa to just die. Where elders talk in real life and little kids will never show face, on social media it is entirely a different ball game. Youngsters engage in conversations never meant for them. Social media has degraded decent social interactions.

My Country, How fah?

All hail Alphasoars . . .

It's been a while since our last post in here. I have issues that have been bothering me the past few days. The first one is that I can't find my president. The Nigerian president has been away for the past two months and no information whatsoever regarding his whereabouts.
I totally don't get it when our government cannot be accountable to the people that put them on the seat. Nigerian people are people that easily adapt to changes, no doubt. I think, that is why when they feel what they are doing is to the detriment of the people, they will still go ahead knowing the masses will in the long run accept it as their fate. Pathetic.

Secondly, our economy is not growing. What the heck is not happening. Empower citizens, they will not. Instead, they find two Keke, four sowing machine, three motorcycles and maybe some branded shirts and wheel barrows and they still has the guts to organise shows just to commission those silly item they bought for 'their people' and that also 'with the people's money'.
When you did a borehole and you celebrate. So you don't know you are supposed to provide water, electricity and other social amenities for the people. Okay, Ka'odiwazie!

It's Past Six O'clock

Time is really running fast and waiting for no one. I remember how I shouted Happy new year just 'yesterday' and then today we are half gone into the year.
Its past six already and we delivered some post on the blog. Let's check our diary . . .

January . . .
We wished ourselves Happy New Year here and moved on as America's first black president steps down for controversial Republican candidate. His last bow contains his last speech. The third post for January is a motivational one, SeeNoLimits and we left off discussing Diabetes, its meaning and prevention. Nigeria's political jamboree was discussed when we talked about A Likely Thunder.
In all, we had five posts for the first month of the year.

February . . .
I told you my blogging journey story when we talked about Blogging, the intrigues. I challenged all Alphasoars when we talked about Maximising 'the one'. We might have that one thing in us that might seem insignificant but when harnessed bring an explosive result. We then had the essay by Sir Alex Otti which was titled, Teacher, Don't Teach me nonsense. The next post was that of fun and humour, Please Come in Here lemme me epp you. Nigeria's telecommunication networks wahala was discussed and then Alphasoars blog listed its main objective and focus.

March . . .
Our first post sought to analyse home responsibility, we talked seriously about it here On Who Lies the weight of a house. The second is almost like it. It bothers on balancing a deficit relationship. So I ask, Do you know how to cure a deficit relationship?. You can know more from this post.

April . . .
The Big Brother Naija came to a close and one of the country's commentators had something to say. The post was written by Rueben Abati. Many people get inspiration from many places, both good and bad. I tried to expose the hidden danger in getting inspiration from addictive and dangerous habits here.

May . . .
Our politicians have not been helping at all. In this post we saw the backward state of our polity and the imminent danger we are been subjected to because of some persons selfish desires.

June . . .
Pretense is never good at any time, be sincere to people you meet around you and tell them how you feel. We talked about that here.
There is something about eating vegetables and pulses as compared to other things one might consider eating. We talked about that here.
Nigeria is got a good spirit, read here and find out about the spirit of Nigeria. Some person are too afraid to try new things, so I urged Alphasoars here to Please, press the spoil button. A controversial post went up here, where I was narrating about an act carried out in search of vengeance and revenge. Got some backlash though. Read that here.
Some folks go about their day to day activities with sad faces, they look forward to making connections but the can't. Read here and find why. The last post for the sixth month is the second part of the essay written by Sir Alex Otti. Read Here.

We had about twenty three posts for the first half of the year. We are expecting more.

Happy soaring!!!

Teacher, Don’t Teach Me Nonsense –2

The second part of the essay by former governorship aspirant in the gubernatorial elections in 2015 in Abia State, Dr. Alex Otti. Read the first entry here.
“The educated differ from the uneducated as much as the living from the dead” Aristotle (384-322BC).
“Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond; cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with college education” Mark Twain (1835-1910)

We open the second phase of our discourse of education with two great quotes from two great minds. Aristotle and Mark Twain need no introduction. Aristotle was an ancient Greek philosopher and scientist, who together with Plato and Socrates laid the foundation for what is today referred to as Western Philosophy. His contributions cut across logic, metaphysics, mathematics, physics, biology, botany, ethics, agriculture, medicine, and politics. He was a student of Plato, who was in turn, a student of Socrates. He is often referred to as the father of logic. One of his theories that I like so much is called syllogism. Simply put, syllogism refers to a sound reasoning that says that “if A is equal to B and B is equal to C, then A is equal to C.” To Aristotle, to the extent that the premises of an argument are true, then the conclusions are guaranteed to be true.

Your Bluetooth is not Discoverable

All hail Alphasoars . . . 

Happy Sallah celebrations, happy Eid to my Muslim friends. Shebi yesterday was sallah? and I was expecting some chevon or beef but alas I was disappointed. There is God ooo!!!
Anyways Happy holidays all.

I was on a taxi heading to my house. Those in the taxi were busy with boring news and dissecting what may never be. I quickly brought out my phone to play me some music.
Robert Kelly was giving me some tunes, bad as it may, my ear phones were not closer so the person closer to me was hearing the song playing. The person closer to me, A God Created Lady asked me to transfer the song to her. The available option was through Bluetooth. So we put on our Bluetooth for the transfer to take place.


We had to pair first. I couldn't find her phone as I searched for available devices. She tried same and same result. I now realized that the discoverable option on the Bluetooth settings was not activated. We had to select the option and then re-searched, paired then the transfer was completed.

How I Practiced Babalawo On a Friend

All hail Alphasoars . . .
How has the soaring gone. Budget is signed, can we see the CHANGE we've always anticipated or are we going to continue dancing the same song played by 'the blame game lords'.

If you grew up in the ghetto or rather in the village, you will have come in contact with some native practices. Some of which are spiritually propelled. Some ghetto lifestyle are propelled by the environment one finds himself. Many people who have lived in the village and later migrate to the city may not find the need to carry hoes on their shoulders and heading to the farm. This may be because of the absence of farming areas. That is why it is somewhat difficult to find babalawos in the cities, though today they have developed adaptive features that allow them to migrate to the cities without much discomfort.

Growing up in the village, I came to understand that what you what, you could actually get by any means you would wish especially when it seems the clear legal route is blocked. Back in the days, for our play group, we always have to challenge ourselves to tasks. Good one and equally the bad ones. We fight for superiority. I remember fighting my best friend when he seems 'to be growing wings' and trying to encroach into my territory. The most beautiful thing about the village is the 'life of adventure'.

You enter thick forest, with clear thinking that meeting an adder is inevitable but still, you keep moving especially when you are bound on a task that must be accomplished. Adventure and curiosity continued driving us till we figured out how to hit back on those that offend us.

Please, Press Spoil!

All hail Alphasoars . . .

Let's do a short post today . . .!!!

When was the last time you pressed the spoil button? Many people are too afraid, they never attempt new things. It takes only the adventurous minds to press the spoil button. Our Christian friends will not forget in a hurry what the wisest king said in his writings.
In Ecclesiastes, the third chapter and in the first verse he told us that "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven"
I know some people will give me a nod but try to add exceptions. But I beg to disagree on the exceptions you are trying to invent. He said everything and that includes the good, the bad and the ugly.
Why people are not pressing the spoil button is because they don't want to make mistakes or attract serious queries from their superiors.
It is very very unfair to not press the spoil button because, the chances that you will continue to repeat a cycle is there. In other sense, seeing a spoil button means that it must be pressed now or in the nearest future. You will be trying to not make mistakes and by that, you avoid knowing 'how bad it is' to know 'how to make it good'. Inventors are people that that have made mistakes. People that have tried pushing the publicly known 'spoil button' and the not 'so known spoil button'.

The Spirit of Nigeria

All hail Alphasoars . . . !!!

It is rainy season in Nigeria. A time characterised by a high amount of rainfall that leaves the weather cool and wet. A season most despised because of the frequent rains and the obstructions it brings to all and sundry.
To business groups, it is mostly despised as it hinders the influx of customers who are in their homes finding shelter against the heavy and frequent downpours.

The weather affects the religious groups who hold outdoor gatherings. Due to the lower standard of electrical installations across the country, ranging from telecommunication mask to television base stations and even the electricity installations, there is a slight drop or most times, a complete outage of the services that these installations power.

The spirit of Nigeria is the spirit of courage and determination. A spirit that never gives up on life. Nigerians are found in almost every country of the world. They are super hustlers. Their tempo towards a given task is always that of winning, success and breakthrough.




Despite the economic downturns in the country, a firing spirit can be visibly seen at work in the hearts and minds of Nigerians.

The spirit of Nigeria is the spirit that never quits despite 'the little'.

The spirit of Nigeria is the spirit that dares political leaders to lead with carefulness.

It is the spirit that divides the red sea of drought to pull a multitude of fishes to the shore.

It is that spirit that wakes up an idea and carries on with it through actualisation.

The spirit of Nigeria is the spirit that spells 'ethnicity' with 'one'.

The spirit of Nigeria is a spirit that is consumed in immortality. It rings the bells of 'our heroes past'.

The spirit of Nigeria is the spirit that leads other nations, that counsels with authority, that consoles with soothing words, that preaches and practices true unity and friendship.

Arise, oh courageous soldiers,
Put on your armour, you builders,
Approach the enemies den,
For all their hisses, roars and growls of feign
Under our will, they must fall.


Happy Soaring!!!

"Prove thy servants . . . and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink"

In a hasty world, everybody is damn so busy. We consider important things last as long as the consequences are not going to materialize 'in a minute'.
Health is wealth, they say but we avoid the road to being healthy. A life consumed by stress needs twice of the time stressed to refresh. The Babylonian King sought him young men, fresh, sound, well able and capable (mentally and psychologically and physiological) to be his ministers. In other words, he was looking for healthy individuals.

The three Hebrews citizens, Shedrack, Meshack and Abednego were among the captives that were recruited for the kingly service at the palace of Nebuchadzer. They understand that their facial appearance matters too as well as their mental capabilities.
When they understood that the idolatrous meals been served were against their beliefs, they differed and begged to be served pulse and water. The Chief of Staff in charge of the recruits feared for his life (not his job because tyrants don't punish by relieving but by killing), he intimated them on the consequences of wearing a sad, long face before the emperor by not eating.


But, understanding the two food that the Hebrews demanded could have saved him of the sweat of analyzing all the cost and effects of abstaining from the palace meals.
Pulse according to Wikipedia is a plant or its fruit or seed in the family Fabaceae. Legumes are grown agriculturally, primarily for their grain seed called pulse, for livestock forage and silage, and as soil-enhancing green manure. We refer mostly to them as beans.
Pulse is rich in needed nutrients necessary for man’s growth. It contains a higher level of protein and other vitamins. A quick check, rates pulse as the highest source of plant protein. The protein content in a given amount of pulse is put at about 25%.

I Am OK!

All hail Alphasoars!!! How has the soaring gone? I perceive, 'smooth'.
Happy New Month. I want to use this medium to inform, remind and update all Alphasoars that my birthday is fast approaching and you'all know what's up, right? Lols.

It is June 11!

Today's topic is not about me though it sounds personal. I want us to look at ourselves and ask, and answer truthfully, "How am I".

It sounds so simple but when you look at it critically, you will discover its complexity. It demands a simple answer but requires an indepth analysis. Humans have through the time made themselves the worst pretenders. They give a reply to questions like this in so simple a manner. They give you the "I am fine" response while they bottle up the "I am not completely fine" symptoms by all means.

To give the 'I am fine' response, one must be completely sound Mentally, Psychologically, physiologically and Emotionally.
A complete analysis of your present state should tell you if you are fine. When you are emotionally disturbed and distracted, there is that higher percentage that you are going to be irrational in dealing with other people's feelings.
There are two things I found out that could make you not to be fine emotionally, psychologically, mentally and emotionally and I will also tell you how to handle them effectively.

Your Future is Marred and Your Life is at Risk

Doom doom doom!
Can you but spell it,
D - O - O - M, Doom,
Its meaning, brings heat.

Doors of Opportunities opened but Opposed by Man,
On the heels of each fateful day,
You have no option than to ask, How can?
and you, forgetting that man as gods also have the keys.

I weep for thee, Oh Spermatova,
For thy future has been sold for pennies,
Rest in thy haven before emergence
For want and drought has overshadowed the day.

I pray you, show me when you must come,
For with my blood, as mingled with water,
I will fight to unlock these opportunities, so locked,
For thy happy stay.

My Inspiration Bank

All Hail Alphasoars!
Happy Easter to everyone. How was your celebrations and I hope Alphasoars' Chief is not left out in your celebrations, send my Chicken and Rice across oh.
Happy celebrations/Holidays as you continue tomorrow been Easter Monday.

Today we will be talking Inspiration.

Miriam-Webster tells us that Inspiration is
1. something that makes someone want to do something or that gives someone an idea about what to do or create
2. force or influence that inspires someone
3. a person, place, experience, etc., that makes someone want to do or create something.

Going by the above meaning as giving by MW, influence is the driving force behind new innovations and creations. There are times when one's bank of ideas seems to be running dry.
When it seems you've lost control of your mental capacity and it looks like you are at the brink of quitting a one time fulfilling course.
That time when you pick your pen to write and discover you want to sleep more.
That time you are way-down than your real self, you feel depressed.
That time what is needed is a little 'push'. That time like the 'Christians' will say, you need the ressurection power to bounce back.

This push is better known as inspiration. Some know what and where they go immediately when it seems they lack inspirations to get inspired.
It is a process that says that you are Tired and almost Expired, then you Retire (to your inspiration bank) then bounce back in almost a fresh nature to Refire!
There are things or places where creative minds could get that push. It could be from Lone Time Meditation, Spiritual (God), Books, Songs, Artifacts and Nature.

However, I discovered that most persons that were creative in there various fields were inspired from negative influences from drugs, Alcohol, sex and spiritism.
A known English writer never wrote his best poem until he was under the influence of alcohol.
Addiction to these negative influences in a bid to get inspiration could be very dangerous because of the after effects that follows such engagements.
A private tutor once told me of an encounter he had with one whose inspirations were motivated by hard drugs.
*** He board a Keke to take him to school where he taught. The keke driver was a well dressed and clean looking young man.
They had gone about ten minutes into the journey and the driver started to plead with him, "Senior man, abeg make I go blow small". He was saying it and panting seriously while driven and shaking like a rat that has its tail lit with fire.
"Abeg carry me go school, am late" he told the driver.

Reuben Abati on 2017 Big Brother Naija TV Show

What a relief! So, the Big Brother Naija reality television programme is finally over. It ended Sunday evening with 23-year old Efe Michael Ejemba, University of Jos graduate of Economics and singer winning the N25 million + SUV at stake, with 57.6% of the votes from over 24 million voters across Africa. Warri, where Efe’s family lives, erupted in excitement. At the Multichoice viewing centre in Ikeja, Lagos, where Katung Aduwak took charge so brilliantly, there was a similar eruption of incandescent joy. I was relieved because for about 70 days, the Big Brother Naija show was a big distraction, crass capitalism at its most cynical edge, a source of unmanageable madness in homes and on the streets. Now that it is over, it is time for some honest frank talk for the attention of all stakeholders involved.

Let me start with the lessons, on a positive note, before delivering the blows. Lesson one: In a very instructive manner, the Big Brother Naija reality television show promoted the ideas of choice and people power at the heart of democracy. Televised across Africa, the viewers had the final say in determining who stayed in the house or left during eviction moments on Sundays. The votes were collated, audited and confirmed by Deloitte, a firm of auditors and thus, the viewer as the voter determined the outcomes. In that regard, a reality show of that sort promoted a consciousness of democracy, choice and influence and it further explained why the people from Nigeria to Cape Agulhas all the way up to the Mediterranean sea took fierce ownership of the programme. In a continent where power is the ultimate aphrodisiac and every access to power, fame and influence is seen as an opportunity to oppress and demean, whatever is done to promote a consciousness of choice and the civil society is laudable. Multichoice, thanks.
 
Lesson Two: in every business concept, perseverance pays. Multichoice has been running its Big Brother Naija and Big Brother Africa concepts for a number of years. Apparently, this year’s Big Brother Naija has been the most impactful, the most profitable and probably also, the most exciting. In one week, over 11 million persons voted to determine the eviction. In the final week of the programme, over 24 million persons voted – that is more than the total number of persons who voted in the Nigerian Presidential election in 2015. This year, Multichoice has made more money from the Big Brother franchise than it has ever done. The programme was sponsored by PayPorte, and with all the voting, and the money spent on recharge cards, Big Brother and Multichoice are the biggest winners. In the end, it is all about business and profit. Everybody has been used. In business, once you have a good, attractive product and you can capture the market, you can fool everybody and make profit. Multichoice, weh done - in Falz, the bad guy’s voice.
Lesson three: humility pays. At the end of the day, in the last week of the programme, the decision by the viewing public was a moral, sentimental one. The biggest star of the programme was, I don’t know what you think, TBOSS (real name: Tokunbo Idowu), half Nigerian, half-Romanian. She dominated the space with her Jezebelic antics, even got some of the male participants ousted by entrapping and outsmarting them with her sexual wiles. She projected herself as a sex object, the ultimate manipulator, the champion Delilah of the Big Brother Africa series. She even made a joke of the entire Big Brother concept by saying she didn’t need the money and if she won, she would spend it in two weeks to pay off debts, and in any case, she had men hitting on her, offering to take her on a ride in their private jets.

She played the role of a female barracuda.
 
Given her looks and talents, she would have been a perfect winner. She would have looked good on the billboards. But she lost because of her arrogance. Attitude is everything: this is the lesson of TBOSS’s disgrace and humiliation. When she was sent out of the House as the second runner up, the viewing centre in Ikeja, Lagos, including Kemen whose nemesis she was, danced in joy.
“They are taunting me?” she asked Ebuka, the anchor. No, sweetheart, they were making a far more serious statement about you. The melodramatic ending of Big Brother Naija 2017 is its only redeeming outcome. Bisola, the first runner up does not even have a degree but she showed talent and resolve, even if her whorish flirtation with Thin Tall Tony is so cheap and self-denigrating. Her One-Nigeria consolation prize is something big she should take seriously. Efe won because of his humility. He is considered the poorest and the most needy of the contestants. Patrons of the programme chose to vote for the contestant who looked and sounded like he would need the money and the opportunity. They gave him a chance in life, although the organizers must ensure that going forward, the show does not become a poverty alleviation scheme. Bisola came second because she too looked like she needed help. Debbie Rise and Marvis also made the finals, but that was meant to be a great compliment to their good conduct, but they didn’t have enough support to make it to the top. TBOSS is the main star who lost. I hope she was taken out of South Africa with a private jet or maybe a submarine! Beauty is not everything, baby.

How to Cure a Deficit Relationship

All hail Alphasoars,
How has the soaring been? I can visualize steady progress on every direction. We have a simple survey on the blog. It you are viewing this blog with a mobile device you will probably not see it, except you switch to Web View. It is on the top left side of the page. It is just a simple 'click to reply' survey. Thanks for having your views.

I describe a deficit relationship as one that has lost the touch of passion or completeness that has previously been visible. It is a relationship that has lost the act of 100% reciprocity. One in which one or both parties feel shortchanged and wish to break up or discontinue with the relationship.

From the foregoing a deficit relationship could possibly be termed one which is far from been called a normal relationship. And there are many things that can lead to abnormalities in a relationship. I will list a few below.

1. Seeing less of what you expect. John bought a beef sausage roll. He took it home having known that in a beef sausage roll, he will find beef enclosed in baked flour. He unwraps what he bought for a quick bite and on taking the first bite, he watered it down with a soft drink. On having the second bite, he realised that he has been short changed by the company that made the suasage roll in that he could no longer find beef enclosed in the baked flour.
By careful examination he found out that the company only added beef to both ends of the sausage roll and nothing was inside.

Hehe, I've succeeded in making someone salivate already, lols.

Like the sausage roll, some individuals apply what we could call 'packaging' in their outward appearance thereby deceiving the next person. And when they have gone through a short while together the other begins to notice that what was presented to her/him was false and not really the person behind the presentation, he tends to withdraw from the relationship.

On Who Lies the Weight of a House?

The Engineering profession is one of the oldest professions. It has never outlived its viability. It is a profession that has in it's entirety taken care of man's every need.
Shelter is adequately catered for by the civil engineers.
Food is one of the basic needs of man and adequately covered by the agricultural engineers.
Another area of need is clothing, and the material engineers are working seriously in that regards to provide clothing using available materials and going ahead to manufacture and use synthetic materials in the same direction.

One thing about our Engineers is their ability to quickly count the cost of a thing before going into work. Taking for our consideration, The Civil Engineers, they determine the position, strenghth and weight of any building to be erected. They take adequate care in determining the type of foundation to be giving to any type of building to be erected. They do this by meticulously taking measurement of the weight of every thing that will be in the house when it is finished, such as the chairs, beds, wardrope, furniture and even human beings.

When the weight is determined, it helps them put up a proper and strong foundation that will not collapse in the nearest future.

Have you taken a closer look at man, or even the creation story in its entirety. The Civil engineer (God) took consideration for every thing that need to be in the world (animal, tree, sun and others), he needs to lay a foundation to hold all these. And yes He did.
The foundation (man) was laid by creation. Man was created to bear the weight of the world. He determine how long he wants every thing to be by not collapsing.

As a man reading this, am talking to you. There are certain things that you shouldn't neglect.

1. Realise that you are the foundation of every thing around you. You are the head. This entails that you must take charge of your every activities on daily basis. Never neglect the power to wield change in any area you find wanting.

2. In building relationships, the success of it all lies in the palm of your hands. This is as the number of years a building stays depends on the number of years the foundation is able to carry it. Always remember that the foundation we are talking about here refers to the man! Be deligent enough to calculate what it will take you to have another partner (wife) with you. When you begin to complain, it shows that you are never solid and steadfast as a foundation should be. Don't start blaming your partner for every failed decision.

3. As a man, house responsibilities such as food, rent, school fees and others are your direct responsibility and indirect responsibility of your wife. It doesn't mean, you share it, it means that there is a closer place you can always look to for help. Let your wife make contribution and not take charge of house expenses.

3. Instead of boisterous and rash judgment, seek to lead. When you lead, you take responsibility for actions not perfectly carried out while seeking suitable solutions. Rash judgment give rise to blame games.

4. As a man, you must always be Responsible. In another sense, we could say, be Response-Able. You must have that ability to respond to whatever you meet.

5. As a man, the way of maturity is yours for life. Maturity is a key factor to know who is a man. The way you handle issues, like, when your wife says, no more cooking since you have refused to bring money while at this point you've made her understand that you are out of cash but she wouldn't listen when in real sense she could afford to cook from her purse but she wouldn't. How do you handle that? Maturity!

For the wight of the house not to crash you and bring you down, you must:

1. Seek counselling always.

2. Be proactive while been responsible.

3. Share yourself with your partner. Living as a bachelor while married will sink you down to your grave. No more secrecy and cover ups.

4. Learn to not only share yourself or your problems but also doing things together. Pray together. Eat meals together. Laugh together. Sleep together.

5. Seek for informations from books and attend seminars. Don't do it alone. Attend seminars together. Buy two copies of a book you want to read and let her have one. Review each chapter finished together with your wife.

6. Be controlled! Don't go out of boundary to please your self or your wife by acquiring wanted but not needed materials. But don't neglect getting some of these wanted items! You can get them as gifts. Am sure you know the differece between Wants and Needs?

7. Generally, don't try to make anybody happy. Your wife, neighbour, boss or any other person, superior or inferior! Just Do the Right!

When you do these, you will live long!

When you live long, you will be happy!

You will be happy because you will enjoy life!

When you enjoy, others will definately feel the goodness that comes from you!

When you die, you will go to heaven!

When you go to heaven, God will be happy with you!

Happy soaring!!!

Nigeria's Telecommunication Networks: A Nigerian's Story

To begin this discuss, I will like to draw your attention to these two important quotes on telecommunication.
"Leadership in telecommunications is also essential, since we are now in the age of e-commerce" Michael Oxley

"Smart businesses do not look at labor costs alone anymore. They do look at market access, transportation, telecommunications infrastructure and the education and skill level of the workforce, the development of capital and the regulatory market" Janet Napolitano.

Telecommunication is an advanced form of communication. It involes the transfer, dispersal or diseminating of information in a more effective way by means of applied science - Technology. The world has evolved in a great extent to this regards. Many methods has been used in different manners from the stone age, to the bronze age and on and on until our later centuries discovered science and applied it to its simplest form in terms of communication.

Time will fail to fully outline the positive effect of telecommunication to man. It has aided communication in terms of speedy spread of news/information, cost of communicating information to those miles away, bridging the gap between the different classes in a society.
The Nigerian case has not totally been a different case altogether.

All thanks to Chief Obasanjo under whose distinguished leadership, the country witnessed the introduction of Mobile GSM.
It helped us communicate with our friends, neighbours and business associates who are far away from us. The system has evolved in many respites including but not limited to cost of purchase of Mobile phones and the Subscribers Identification Module otherwise called the SIM card and also the advent of many other telecommunication networks.

This article is specifically about the services rendered by these telecommunication networks. To the average Nigerian businessman, the mobile phone is a tool by which transactions could be initiated and sales or further contact established. Therefore bringing into mind the above quote by Janet N. describing that limitations put on labour in time past is no longer the best approach since there are other things to be considered of which telecommunication is also of utmost importance.

Michael Oxley from his expressed thoughts above could be saying nothing lesser than that the competition that exist among telecommunication networks is healthy since they are striving to be among the leaders in the industry but these quest among those in Nigeria has not been effectively managed. This is especially as it has endangered effective communication among individuals and business groups.

We are now in the period where consumers' satisfation is secondary!

We are now in the period where communication is based on the amount of money in your pockets.

We are now in the period where your account balance can be frequently stolen from by operators without remorse.

We are now in the period where operators SUBSCRIBE a customer to secret operations where their hard earned money is dutifully deducted on daily basis without notice.

We are now in the period where operators use the monies recharged by aged women in the rural areas without notice who might not be learned in knowing what frivolous packages has been subbscribed upon them forcefully.

We are now in the period where operators sale your identity (number) to online marketters to start sending you promotions unannounced. Whatever happens to consumer privacy policies!

I have been customer to some of our most recognised operators, consuming their services and I had to, at the long run quit some of them for some of these activities.

I left the MTN Network for unwarranted deductions they always carry out on my line of which when I call the customer care, the reply I always get is "we cannot do anything about".

I left Etisalat Network some years back for always disturbing my peace with promotions and unsolicited SMSs. This happened before the advent of the code invented by NCC to stop some of these SMSs. Where was NCC years back.
By popular believe, parents come before their children. By this, the Federal Government and the NCC are to be parents to these operators referring to them as our children. Why then did we witness the frivolous activities of these network providers (children) before the eventual manifestation of their parents (the FG and NCC).

Another annoying fact is the absence of effective customer care among these operators. When you call the network provider's customer care line, they keep giving you adverts and all sorts for almost 50 minutes and at the end they give you option to either by any means serve yourself through the recorded messages or hang up.

The Airtel network is the only one which has an outstanding record in this aspect.

When you put the customer first in every form of business you do, the market strength will never diminish. It is a fact!

Gain above customer satisfaction will always lead to business downturn!

Please I want to plead with our network operators to always consider the customer in trying by all means to deliver effective service. The networks I mentioned here are not the only operators with a bad service record in any aspect but by this, you as a network service provider should know that the Nigerian populace is Onyokomitaring you.

Thanks!

Teacher, Don’t Teach Me Nonsense –1

By Alex Otti alex.otti@thisdaylive.com

Credit for the title of today’s column is to no other person than the late King of Afro beat music, the Abami Eda himself, Olufela Olusegun Oludotun Ransome-Kuti, also known as Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Those who are old enough would agree that Fela, who died 20 years ago, was not just a philosopher but a crusader and revolutionist. In this 1980 song, Fela insists that everything one does must have been taught by someone. At birth, the teachers are the parents, and by school age, the teacher is the school teacher while at university level, the teacher becomes the lecturer. When one gets done with school and begins to work, Fela argues that the teacher becomes the government which can also be called the society. What is taught, according to Fela, is a function of Culture and tradition.

Virtually all the countries of the world have got its teaching right based on their culture and tradition except African countries.
He believes that is the reason we have problems with governance in Africa because our governments ignore our culture and tradition in administering our countries and instead learn other people’s culture and tradition. This is also the reason, he continued, we adopted the colonial democracy model which he called “dem all crazy” and “demonstration of craze” According to him, demonstration of craze brought about corruption, mismanagement, stealing, inflation, election rigging and the new one called “austerity measure” that made him laugh. He laughed at ‘austerity measure’ because the rich steals from the poor and forces the poor to tighten their belts to pay for the former’s profligacy. He believes the white man taught African leaders the wrong things and actively encouraged them to misgovern their societies. Since Fela is not in the same category with those that have been taught the wrong thing, he warns the teachers not to attempt to teach him nonsense.
Today, we are going to look at teaching or better still, education and how seriously we have addressed that subject in Nigeria. We will also like to situate education within the context of the myriad of problems we are grappling with and how qualitative and ‘quantitative’ education can help liberate our youths from the shackles of poverty and hopelessness.
As a point of departure, I completely agree with Fela that whatever we do, we must have learnt. Think of a new born baby. It starts learning how to eat from liquids through semi solids to solids. The child learns how to crawl and subsequently how to walk and run. The first set of teaching happens in the home. Where the parents devote a lot of time to teaching their children, they turn out to be better children than where the parents had little or no time for them. Of course, this is the rule. Just like it is said, to every rule, there is an exception. The rule, however, is that good parental upbringing is synonymous with good behaviour in children and vice versa. Any situation that does not conform to this principle is an exception. Parents must, therefore, pay attention to the kind of examples and training they give their children particularly at those early formative stages of their lives. It is often said that man is a product of his environment. A tardy environment would naturally produce a tardy human being.
Beyond the family is the early school setting. This would include nursery school which is not available to everyone particularly the majority brought up in the villages. The officially recognised and generally acceptable early level education is the primary school. For most children, the primary school defines their basic encounter with education. Most kids take their bearing from their primary education. Habits get formed from here.

Maximizing 'The One'

This piece might be a bit lengthy but I promise you a nice read and you will be glad you did!
When Charles Babbage and Alan Turing were trying to conceive the 'computer idea', I think what was in their mind was something like:
1. Something that could make work easier
2. Something that could multi-task
3. Something that could establish an outcome very easily, very fast and accurately and other reasons we at this time might try to conceive.

At the end of the day, taking a closer look at the modern computers we have now, I believe the idea has been fruitful. We now have computers that compute figures (even much heavy figures) easily and fast.
We can also work on the computer on different things at the same time, like, communicate with other users on a network while working on a project on MS-word or on the internet, wanting to search for informations but you must download a video of about 10gb. You start the download and close or start another page to search for your informations.
But again, there are computers that cannot multitask at same time, I.e. you must do one thing at a time. Such computers could be our everly useful calculators or the wrist watch.
So many things are responsible for these limitations on a selected computers and they are not in any way lesser than what a computer is. And as well they were not built by chance or accident but by purpose to serve a specific function.

The Bible in Matthew the twenty fifth chapter and verses forteen through twenty nine has a human application to what I have earlier explained about the computer. Been a curios reader of that holy book will prompt you to observe a line that I shall highlight. It is in verse number fifteen and in the middle of it, "...to every man according to his several ability..."
The story reveals that three persons were called and talents were delivered them. To each one of, a distinct and different amount of talents was awarded to them. Another thing I found there was the fact that the master never give them any specific instruction as to When, How and Where to trade the talents, but they were left to themselve to decide but to make sure that they were not idle when the master returns.

The story tells what happened at the end of the day. But there are salient facts that I think is worth considering:
1. You are different from every other person. Like the master of those servants did in given each one of them a specific number of but not same talents depicts that they weren't same. They are human beings quit sure with a totally different 'built in' characters. So there was no way they are going to receive the same measure of goods/talents.
Like the computer I explained earlier, they make work easier, produce results faster but not all computers produces hard form of result and not all can perform two function at a time. We see lots of people each day living with what I call delusionary+imaginary regrets. They always see the good in others and wants to do that same thing they find in others despising 'The One' in them.

2. Everyone of Us is got talent(s). Whether it is with an 's' or not, we all have got talents in us. Oxford Dictionary tells us that talent means "A natural ability (built in) to do something well".
Like popular milk brand in Nigeria will say, "It's in you". In everyone like a natural ability to do a particaular thing well. It behooves on every human to find that thing in you that you can do well. You can sing well. You can write well. You can act well. You can teach well. You can 'care' well. Find it! It is in you.

Blogging; The Intrigues!

Blogging as an act of sharing information on the internet through different platforms has eased writers the stress of going to the printing press to have their daily, weekly or monthly journals published. Internet blogging has helped individuals garner a wider readership worldwide without spending much or nothing at all. And this applies specially to those who have the flare for writing. Though writing is an art that could be acquired, nurtured and developed but still there are those who find writing as a normal routine, a part of their life and they find writing and blogging 'exceptionally easy'.

By age thirteen, I have written three books. A journal titled 'See the World', analyzing my environment as I see it and the two other were stories. The worst, they never saw the light of the day. Then 2012, I heard about blogging through a social media platform. Then I quickly grabbed my pen and scribbled the web address chukwumafly.com. Whatever SOARING and FLYING got to do with me, I don't know. I JUST FELT I COULD FLY!

Due to immaturity and all, it died as it was birthed. Later on, I got hold of a band new lappy. It spurred my writing passion once again. Within three months of handling the system, I had composed about twenty poems and four short stories. The process to bringing my writing to the world was once again cut short due to malware and malfunction. The only word was "TOTAL FORMAT". Then again, my writing was lost.
Fast forward to "13, I decided to enter internet by force, lolz. I went from different blogging platforms to the other.

Everything Goes: A Likely Thunder!

Every day presents another opportunity to either Correct yesterday or Continue from yesterday. The power of choice lies in our hands and our ability to go the right direction is a key to landing at our desired destination.
The country has gone through processes which have either bettered or battered it. Reasonable eyes will discern the truth. We have gone from One Nigeria where there is unison in the voices that are heard, whether political, religious, social or secular to that where we have to keep our ears focused to get out a particular voice which we want to hear and silence the other. The power of choice is still active but not visible.
The voices which have echoed in our ears in times past have been that of
Let’s build Nigeria
Let’s uphold Nigeria
Let’s love Nigeria
Let’s strengthen Nigeria
Lets defend our past heroes’ footprints.
But at this moment can we of a truth say these voices are still singing same choruses up until now or a bitter cry is been heard from all quarters?

Alphasoars Healthcheck: Discussing Diabetes

Today we are going to be talking about Diabetes. Diabetes as we all know is one of the fastest killing diseases in Africa and as well as the world. There is type 1 and type 2 diabetes but we will be treating the term diabetes without the types because if you can be able to prevent the disease you might as well avoid the types. Type 1 is mostly common with children and teenagers while the other is a tormentor to the grownups – the adults. What is Diabetes? It is that ailment we have been made to believe comes as a result of excess sugar intake. If you drink that carbonated drink two times a day, you will surely get diabetes and …….. That is what they will tell us. That is a false truth I must admit. It has an element of truth. Diabetes is a disease in which there is an excessive presence of sugar in the blood. Typically the reason, why people take to their heels when they are presented with food that is got sugar in it. But in the reality what causes this ailment is the inhibition, insufficiency or absence of a typical hormone in the body that controls the uses and presence of glucose in the body.

#SeeNoLimits

Many a times supremacy over life's issues is largely dependent on how we see them, how we magnify them and how we occupy our thoughts with their comparisms.
Life difficulties and challenges will surely arise and if you are really sure of your destination in the nearest future, your prayer is not going to be that of avoidance but faith to fight through. There are times we are faced with new challenges (situations we haven't been through all our life), and this is after a not-long-ago solved challenges. This challenges is not really because there are millitators against your success but because 'you have just made a process'. If you see them as limitation and not as stepping stones, you are not going to hurt your progress because instead of going back to the drawing board to map out solutions, you will go back to recount your sorrows and past challenges which will never boost your ego to succeed but weigh you down on your knees. And you know what people who are brought on their knees do - they remember prayer. To them prayer is the last resort and that is where their perpetual failure starts because only prayer without plans is an open invitation to more problems such as depression and negative thoughts.
Moving Forward . . .
This requires a not regular approach, which is #SeeNoLimits. Do not try to see your problems or challenges before you see yourself. It brings negative self comparisms. See yourself first through the eyes of God. Moving forward is good and rewarding.
How To Move Forward . . .
The G factor is formost. Discover the place of God in your forthcoming success story. Many fail trying to do it alone. When you go to your drawing board, your face is met with a hard board, a thick paper and a strong pen. There is need to wet these materials. And been truthful to ourselves we will discover that there is not a single liquid that could be used in the wetting process apart from Prayer. The sweat from your burdened heart for success that flows through your body in payer is all you need to wet your planning materials first and thereby giving God the license to act on your plans before you.
+++prayerfully make your plans!
+++prayerfully work on your plans!
+++prayerfully dedicate yourself to accomplishing your plans.
Another thing on this 'How Process' is understanding your values. Value yourself more than your goals and plans because without you been there the plans are not going to be a reality. How do you enjoy your success if you are not there to see it come to reality. Therefore with such kind of value you put on yourself, when challenges you will find yourself, through God, bigger than them.
In a baby year of 2017, #SeeNoLimits.
Make Progress!
Achieve More!

Happy Soaring!

Obama: His Last Bow!

Obama's full farewell speech.

It’s good to be home. My fellow Americans, Michelle and I have been so touched by all the well-wishes we’ve received over the past few weeks. But tonight it’s my turn to say thanks. Whether we’ve seen eye-to-eye or rarely agreed at all, my conversations with you, the American people – in living rooms and schools; at farms and on factory floors; at diners and on distant outposts – are what have kept me honest, kept me inspired, and kept me going. Every day, I learned from you. You made me a better President, and you made me a better man. Read Obama's Farewell Speech . . . I first came to Chicago when I was in my early twenties, still trying to figure out who I was; still searching for a purpose to my life.

It was in neighborhoods not far from here where I began working with church groups in the shadows of closed steel mills. It was on these streets where I witnessed the power of faith, and the quiet dignity of working people in the face of struggle and loss. This is where I learned that change only happens when ordinary people get involved, get engaged, and come together to demand it.
It’s the conviction that we are all created equal, endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, among them life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It’s the insistence that these rights, while self-evident, have never been self-executing; that We, the People, through the instrument of our democracy, can form a more perfect union.This is the great gift our Founders gave us. The freedom to chase our individual dreams through our sweat, toil, and imagination – and the imperative to strive together as well, to achieve a greater good. For 240 years, our nation’s call to citizenship has given work and purpose to each new generation. It’s what led patriots to choose republic over tyranny, pioneers to trek west, slaves to brave that makeshift railroad to freedom. It’s what pulled immigrants and refugees across oceans and the Rio Grande, pushed women to reach for the ballot, powered workers to organize. It’s why GIs gave their lives at Omaha Beach and Iwo Jima; Iraq and Afghanistan – and why men and women from Selma to Stonewall were prepared to give theirs as well. So that’s what we mean when we say America is exceptional. Not that our nation has been flawless from the start, but that we have shown the capacity to change, and make life better for those who follow. Yes, our progress has been uneven. The work of democracy has always been hard, contentious and sometimes bloody. For every two steps forward, it often feels we take one step back. But the long sweep of America has been defined by forward motion, a constant widening of our founding creed to embrace all, and not just some. If I had told you eight years ago that America would reverse a great recession, reboot our auto industry, and unleash the longest stretch of job creation in our history…if I had told you that we would open up a new chapter with the Cuban people, shut down Iran’s nuclear weapons program without firing a shot, and take out the mastermind of 9/11…if I had told you that we would win marriage equality, and secure the right to health insurance for another 20 million of our fellow citizens – you might have said our sights were set a little too high. But that’s what we did. That’s what you did. You were the change. You answered people’s hopes, and because of you, by almost every measure, America is a better, stronger place than it was when we started. In ten days, the world will witness a hallmark of our democracy: the peaceful transfer of power from one freely-elected president to the next. I committed to President-Elect Trump that my administration would ensure the smoothest possible transition, just as President Bush did for me. Because it’s up to all of us to make sure our government can help us meet the many challenges we still face.
