I Am Not Scared Of Going To Jail – Senate President

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki has revealed that there are some powerful people in President Buhari’s government who are controlling him

Saraki also alleged that these powerful individuals are using the Executive to carry out their personal agenda.
The Senate President said he is ready to go to jail than yield to the manipulations of those selfish politicians.
According to Daily Post, he said “This is a cross I am prepared to carry. If yielding to the nefarious agenda of a few individuals who are bent in undermining our democracy and destabilising the Federal government to satisfy their selfish interests is the alternative to losing my personal freedom, let the doors of jails be thrown open and I shall be a happy guest.”
Adding that “I will remain true and committed to the responsibilities that my citizenship and my office impose on me. Without doubt, the highest of those responsibilities is the steadfast refusal to surrender to the subversion of our democracy and the desecration of the Senate.”
The Senate President also said he will continue to rise above the persecutions and distractions.
Saraki also said “Let it be abundantly clear, both as a citizen and as a foremost Legislator, I will continue to rise above all the persecution and distraction that have been visited on me. In the words of Martin Luther King Junior, “the ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at a time of challenge and controversy.”
The Chief Whip of the Senate, Professor Olusola Adeyeye, has said that it would be impossible to remove Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
Adeyeye also confirmed that the Senate standing order was tampered with.

Kwara APC attacks Presidency over Saraki

Kwara state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reechoed the view of Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki that that “there is a government within the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.” 

– Kwara APC also accused Femi Adesina of trying to create discord between the President and the Senate leadership Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Whatsapp Saraki and Ekweremadu The Kwara state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reechoed the view of Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki that that “there is a government within the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.” The state chapter in a statement by it publicity secretary, Alhaji Sulyman Buhari also attacked the presidency for denying the assertion of the former Kwara governor. “The statement by Mr. Femi Adesina on behalf of Mr. President is not only unpresidential, it also failed to convincingly dismiss the widely held view of Nigerians that, indeed, there is a government within the government of Mr. President.
      “It is instructive to note that the Senate President is not the first Nigerian to express such observations. “The Senate President, through the press statement he personally signed, only called the attention of Mr. President to the danger ahead if the ugly situation is permitted to fester. 
        Kwara APC also accused Femi Adesina of trying to create discord between the President and the Senate leadership. “In fact, the statement by Mr. Adesina is the clearest indication that a government exists within the government of Mr. President. The President that we know, the President that we have worked with, the President that we have worked for, the President that we voted for, would not have directed his media adviser to issue such anunpresidential statement. That statement is a confirmation of the Senate President’s observation. “The intention of people like Adesina in the Villa is to create a discord between Mr. President and the Senate President, but that will never happen.
       “It is the same cabal that embarrassed Mr. President himself by padding the 2016 national budget, including the budget of Aso Rock, to the extent of inflating some figures in the Villa expenditures. “It is the same cabal that has made it nearly impossible for many ministers and Special Advisers to have access to Mr. President. The Presidency should be reminded that a cabal hijacked and destroyed the government of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.”

SHOCKING!! You won't believe how much Nigerians spend daily on sport beating.

           Casinos and endless entertainment are primarily what Las Vegas in the US is known for. But back home in Nigeria, those involved in casino and sports betting are discriminated against by the larger society. In an interview, Yahaya Maikori, the president of the Nigeria Gaming Association (NGA), speaks on the success and challenges of the industry back home in Nigeria. Excerpt. Betting is becoming very popular in Nigeria with the likes of Naija Bet, 1960 Bet amongst others.What is fueling this revolution as far sports betting is concerned in Nigeria? Yes. 



   It may seem revolutionary but it is not entirely a new thing. It started with pools betting which has been around even from when we were children. However the revolution you talk about is now fueled by several things which include access to media, technology and the internet, which have now brought sports even to our mobile phones. Also, the emergence of big brands like the English Premier League, the German Bundesliga, etc. Some of these companies worth hundreds of millions of dollars have in the process of building their brands embarked on some form of evangelization attracting massive followership across the globe.

 The  passion sports evokes has contributed immensely to the popularity of sports betting. Sports betting means to bet on a sporting event. Since Nigerians are sports loving people, getting people from just enjoying a game to staking cash on what they are passionate about is really easy. Tell our readers what they might not know about the Nigeria Gaming Association (NGA). The association started about five years ago when we started having issues with some of the government regulatory bodies. First we started as Association of Casino Operators of Nigeria (ACON), and as time went on, we started to notice the growth of other areas like sports betting, online, etc. So, we decided to broaden the association to cover the whole gaming industry. Currently, our trustees represent different sectors of the industry. The idea is to create a platform for the advancement of our common interest as well as liaise with relevant institutions particularly government to build an economically viable industry for all stakeholders. The manner in which you talk about ‘gaming industry’ suggests to me that we have an industry here in Nigeria.
            In actual sense, do we really have gaming industry yet? Oh we have a very big gaming industry, probably bigger than what you imagine. In an interview some time back I stated that sports betting were a N40 billion industry annually. But with the information currently available to me now, I know sport betting in Nigeria is much bigger than that and that is only one side of the story. We have casino, we have lottery, promos, poker, video games and apps, etc. READ ALSO: NFF furious with referees favoring teams in the NPFL The Nigerian Lottery Act defines lottery to include “any game of chance or game of skill”. If you use that definition, you will find out that the issue is gone beyond your traditional perception of the industry. It also means that promos sponsored by corporate organizations fall into this space; these include those by telcos, banks, FMCGs, etc. Traditionally, when we talk about the gaming industry, we tend to limit it to only when people stake money but it goes way beyond that. When you text for the purpose of winning something or when you play Candy Crush or Angry Birds on your phone or laptop it means you are actively engaged at some level in the industry. Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Whatsapp Yahaya Maikori In terms of size, sports betting alone is conveniently over N100 billion in revenues annually. There is a report that says Nigerians stake N1.4 billion every day on sports betting, although I don’t know the basis of that report. But that begins to give you an insight into how big the industry possibly is. Even looking at some of the information I am privy to reinforce those projections. We haven’t even talked about lottery, which is surprisingly still bigger than sport betting. How, in your view, can government create or increase its own revenue in this huge industry as you are saying? First of all, the government needs to understand the industry especially the value chain. Government should not wear the ‘we don’t want to get involved in it’ attitude. This industry is a critical part of the entertainment industry because that is the first service it provides. What you decide to do is entirely your own choice. Some people play video games without staking anything; while some play and stake something. Some people watch football and stake cash while others watch and don’t. The industry is totally ICT driven; a report says Nigeria loses over $5 billion to foreign companies on software per annum. So you can imagine the revenue and employment opportunities that government can tap into if they encourage Nigerian software developers. So primarily, any gaming company is an ICT company. Ninety per cent of what they do is based on ICT. 

Tourism is another opportunity for government to tap into and that is why people go to Las Vegas and you will be amazed at how many Nigerians travel to Vegas, Macau, etc. Lottery has traditionally been seen as form of taxation and I believe you are going to see many state governments start to run their lottery as an alternative revenue stream. Shouldn’t we be thinking about adequate legislative framework now as a step towards unleashing the industry’s huge economic potential in order to increase government’s revenue in the sector? 
      At the moment, there is nothing deliberate in terms of legislation as far as the gaming industry is concerned. What we have is haphazard. You know in 1977, I think it was Obasanjo’s government that banned the importation of slot machines. Whatever the intention was then the purpose has been defeated and the law is obsolete because things have totally changed. With the benefit of technology people simply download slots apps on their phones while using their credit cards to pay. There is a need for us to have national policy on gaming for the purpose of integrating it into our developmental plan. In fact, a new research shows that with the continued automation of businesses will result in massive unemployment, the millennial will depend on the gaming industry for livelihood potentially making it the biggest industry in the next 10-15 years. For most investors they consider our market a grey market because of the lack of proper legislation in most of the states. Government needs to know that the gaming industry is part of popular culture and technology has made it ubiquitous and the only way you can get a grip is to be proactive in legislating for the sector. Now, there has been this talk of diversifying the Nigerian economy by successive governments since only God knows when, without any deliberate policy and action to back it up. Using the same terminology (diversification), how can government benefit in the industry in terms of taxes? The gaming industry is being taxed at the moment but without an understanding of the uniqueness of the industry and I think this was one of the reasons why our association was formed. The uniform application of taxes without regard to the peculiarity of the industry has discouraged a lot of local operators and potential foreign investors to the Nigerian market. 
        But if the tax regime is properly aligned with what obtains internationally, it will definitely be a huge revenue stream for Nigeria. So, taxes for lottery and sports betting are totally different; in short all the subsectors are taxed differently taking into account their uniqueness. Improper taxation will simply discourage investments while making operators go underground which can become detrimental to the economy. So, engaging the Federal Inland Revenue is top on our agenda. That now takes us to job creation. In what way can government partner with the gaming industry key stakeholders including the gaming association to create employment for the teeming youths in the country? Also, since government maybe naïve of this opportunity, what is your organization doing to bring government up to speed about this huge potential? Part of what we intend to do soon is to hold a media briefing with some of our trustees and members in attendance. This briefing I believe will help lift the mystery surrounding the industry. We need the media to understand in order to help push our agenda of ‘economic development through gaming’. At this briefing data from other jurisdictions would be showcased to disprove some of the misconceptions about the industry. For example, the word ‘casino’ evokes memories of the 60s where all manner of crime converged but casinos are now legitimate establishments you can go to without fear. Besides, the government has several mechanisms in place to check even money laundering which they were hitherto known for. In any case, today’s casino has changed and can also be experienced online or with your phone. We hosted an event last year (Big Africa Summit) in Lagos, where we had key government officials in attendance. We are planning another one this year. We intend to interact with some of the key government agencies we think are important to the development of the industry. This kind of engagement will be the first step towards being able to profile the value chain and how to leverage on the potentials. In the ICT world, companies have been valued in billions of dollars without grossing any revenue. If for example, the gaming companies were using local  software, you can only imagine how much of the $5 billion being lost annually on software will be saved by Nigeria! That amount represents a huge leakage to our economy. So, gaming companies are essentially software companies with huge potentials for exports and I believe we have enough local talent to build software that can become dominant in powering the industry world wide. But is there any country you can sight as example where gaming industry is hugely adding to its economic value? Let us not go too far. Let us look at the UK and the US. What drives the economy of Las Vegas, Macau? Some will call it tourism while some call it entertainment and this is part of the reason for poor data because it touches different sectors. Some call it gambling but elsewhere they are known as the software or tech industry. The gaming industry contributes hugely to the economy of these countries. Even in Nigeria, the problem is that we have just not been able to look at it for what it is, and that is why we have not been able to figure its exact contribution to Nigeria’s GDP.   
        So, what is the association of which you are the president doing to bridge this data gap in order for you to be able to state categorically the gaming industry’s contribution to the GDP? I asked this question because government may want you to convince it what your contributions are at the moment if it will have a sense of this potential. We have started engaging all the relevant stakeholders. We also make available templates to our members to assist us with data capture; but the most effective way of covering the leakages is to educate government on the benefits and importance of putting in place framework that will enhance proper licensing, monitoring and enforcement. As a first step to achieve this, we are partnering with Clarion Events, owners of ICE/EIG, to host a high level event this year where we are going to have all the critical government institutions in one room to chart a way forward. Lastly, who are those that constitute the stakeholders of the gaming industry in Nigeria? The stakeholders are many. We have government institutions, state governments, those interested in entertainment, financial institutions especially those involved in payment processing; investors, operators and even the punters. The truth is that we are all stakeholders in this industry at some level

Life Without Love Is Lifeless

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us."1

Dr. Alfred Adler, international psychiatrist, based the following conclusions on a careful analysis of thousands of patients: "The most important task imposed by religion has always been, 'Love your neighbor….' It is the individual who is not interested in his fellow man who has the greatest difficulties in life and provides the greatest injury to others. It is from among such individuals that all human failures spring." 

As I have said a number of times, it may not be the most desirable for many of us, but we can live healthily as a single or without romantic love in our life. But we cannot live healthily without loving relationships—or at the very least, without one loving relationship. 

I would agree with Dr. Adler in that, more often than not, it is a lack of love that drives people into self-destructive behaviors such as: looking for love in all the wrong places and getting deeply hurt and disappointed; acting out sexually as a false substitute for love; and turning to drugs and alcohol as a means to anesthetize or deaden the pain of emptiness caused by a lack of love. 

So, if we are lacking in love or feel that we need more healthy love in our life, where do we find it? Easy question; tough answer. 

First, it begins by admitting to ourselves and to at least one trusted friend exactly how empty and lacking in love we feel. 

Second, remember that we get damaged in damaging relationships and are healed in healing relationships. This means we need to be in relationship with at least one loving, accepting, non-judgmental, trusted person (a capable counselor if necessary) with whom we can be totally open and honest and, step by step, open up and reveal our true self—warts and all. It's only as we reveal who we truly are that we can be loved and accepted for who we are, and not for what we have ever done or have failed to do. As we are loved and accepted in this way, little by little we learn to love and accept ourselves. 

This, of course, takes courageous work and time. However as we learn to love and accept ourselves, we are not only freed to change, but also in a position where we are attracted to loving people and they to us. Remember, we can only be loved to the degree that we are known—and we can only love and accept others to the degree that we ourselves have been loved and accepted. 

Third, and most important, realize that we not only need the love of others, but most important of all, we need to know and experience God's love, forgiveness, and His divine acceptance. As we open up to Him and confess our true self to Him—sins and faults—and ask for His forgiveness, He forgives us totally. And, of course, we need to learn how to forgive ourselves. Then we are freed to experience God's love in the depths of our inner being. And joyously we will discover, as we grow in love towards others, our love for God will also grow and be enriched. As God's Word says, "If we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us" 

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please help me to find a loving friend with whom I can feel totally safe to open up and share my true self—my sins and faults—and give me the courage to be totally honest and do this. Help me, too, to grow in love towards others so that Your love is made complete in me. And then, help me to give the same love to others as they and You have given to me. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully in Jesus's name. Amen" 

1. 1 John 4:11-12 (NIV)

MUST READ : Answers you should know before interview

With the competition keener than ever and the economy in a slump, you need to prepare for your job interview thoroughly. It’s no longer enough to offer a firm handshake to your interviewer, make eye contact, and nod pleasantly now and then. You need to prepare a dynamic application letter and resume.

You need to research the company. And you need to present a confident image and develop the ability to answer tough questions on the spot.

Although no one can predict the questions your potential employer will ask, you can think about how you’d answer some of the commonly asked ones. Here are ten questions for you to consider and a few hints about how to answer them:

Tell me about yourself.
Chances are the employer doesn’t want to know how much you weighed when you were born, when you learned to tie your shoes, or how much you had to drink last night. He or she wants to know how you would fit into the company and what your relevant job experience is. You might answer by asking the interviewer what he’d like to know. Or you might talk about your education, the fact that you’re a team player, or whatever you think might be important to this particular company.Why should we hire you?
Even though five people may be waiting outside, you need to sound confident, calm, and capable. Explain how your experience has prepared you for the job. Emphasize the qualities you think the employer is looking for, such as your outstanding work ethic or the fact that you’re a fast learner. What is your worst characteristic?
Some human resource specialists suggest that you make a virtue sound like a flaw. “I tend to be a perfectionist,” or, “Everyone says I work too hard.” But others say these answers have become clichés. Mention a minor flaw, such as, “I think I’m too outspoken at times, but I’m working on it.” Where do you want to be five years from now?
Let the interviewer know you’re looking for job stability and that you aren’t planning to use this job as a temporary stopping point in your quest for a better position. You
could say, “I’d like to be employed in a small company like this one, where I can learn,
contribute, and advance.” Why did you leave your last job?
Never put your former employer or your co-workers in a negative light. Don’t blame them for your departure. Give a positive reason, such as you left to take advantage of another opportunity that was better suited to your skills. Tell me about a problem you had in your life and how you solved it.
Be prepared with a short answer that shows you’re resourceful. “I really wanted to go to a private university, but my parents didn’t have the money. I went to a community college for two years, worked part time and saved my money so I could attend the last two years at the college of my choice.” Have you had difficulties getting along with supervisors or co-workers?
You’d have to be a saint to have had no problems with the people you worked with. You might answer, “Nothing major. I try to get along with everyone.” How do you deal with stress on the job?
The employer wants to know if you’re going to run out the door when things get stressful. Ask yourself if you thrive on working with deadlines or if you need creative time to function more effectively. Think about how you handle stress and be honest. “I focus on the work I’m doing,” or, “I make time to work out at the gym.” What salary do you want for this job?
Rather than stating a definite figure, tell the interviewer you’d expect to get somewhere in the standard range paid for this position. Do you have questions for me?
Always have a few questions. They show that you researched the company. Ask about a
current issue the company is working on or how their recent layoff in another department
affected company morale.Remember– the job interview is a two-way discovery process. By doing your homework and answering interview questions intelligently, you’re striving to prove you’re the person for the job On the other hand, you need to decide–sometimes in the midst of the questions—if the position you’re applying for is what you want to do and if the company is where you want to spend most of your time for the next few (at least) years.

The key to a Happy life


The Key to a Happy Life  

Everyone has a mind, however, very few of us possess a deep understanding of the nature and functions of the mind. For example, if we have not studied and trained in Buddha’s teachings we probably know next to nothing about the different types of mind, how they are generated, and what effect they have on our lives. Therefore, it is difficult to distinguish virtuous minds from non-virtuous minds, and we are clueless about how to cultivate the former and abandon the latter. Why is it necessary to understand our mind? The answer is simple and logical. Happiness and suffering are states of mind, and so if we want to be free from suffering and enjoy true happiness we need to possess a thorough understanding of the mind and how to control it. There is no other way that we can we definitely improve the quality of our life, both now and in the future.

In recent years our knowledge and control of the external world have increased considerably and as a result we have witnessed extraordinary material development; but the resultant effect has not been an increase in human happiness. Suffering around the world has not decreased, and there are no fewer problems. On the contrary, it could be said that there are now greater problems and more unhappiness than ever before. Therefore, we can see clearly that the cause of happiness and the solution to our problems will never be found by increasing our knowledge or control of the external world. Happiness and suffering only exist within the mind and so their origins are not to be found outside the mind. If we want to find lasting happiness and freedom from suffering we must improve our understanding of the mind.

When things don’t go our way or we experience difficulties in life our normal reaction is to regard the situation itself as the problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience arise from within the mind. If we were to respond to life’s difficulties with a positive or peaceful mind they would not be problems for us; indeed we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for spiritual growth. Problems arise only if we react to difficult situations with a negative state of mind. Therefore, if we want to be free from problems we must gain control of our mind.

The Source of Our Problems  
Since we all have within us unlimited potential for peace and happiness, we may wonder why it is so hard to maintain a continually happy and peaceful mind. This is because of the delusions that fill our mind and disturb our inner peace. Delusions are distorted ways of looking at ourself, other people, and the world around us – like a distorted mirror they reflect a distorted world. The delusion of anger, for example, views other people as intrinsically bad, but there is no such thing as an intrinsically bad person. Desirous attachment, on the other hand, sees its object of desire as intrinsically good and as a true source of happiness. If we have a strong desire to eat ice cream, ice cream appears to be intrinsically desirable. However, once we have overeaten and start to feel sick, it no longer seems so delicious and may even appear disgusting. This shows that in itself ice cream is neither delicious nor disgusting. It is the deluded mind of attachment that projects all kinds of desirable qualities onto its objects and then relates to them as if those qualities come from the object itself.

All delusions function in this way, projecting onto the world their own distorted version of reality and then relating to this projection as if it were true. When our delusions are arising within our mind we have lost our grip on reality and are not seeing things as they really are. Since our mind is under the control of at least subtle forms of delusion all the time, it is not surprising that we constantly experience stress, anxiety and confusion. It is as if we are continually chasing mirages, only to be disappointed when they do not fulfill our desires.

10 tips for an awesome and SEO-friendly blog post

Writing a blog post like all other writing- is a skill. To keep your reader interested, you should think about structuring your text and writing in an appealing style. You can help your readers to grasp the main idea of your post by providing headings, subheadings and clear paragraphs. If people understand and like your text, they are much more inclined to share, like, tweet and link to your post. And that will increase your rankings! So, in order to improve your ranking in Google, you should definitely try to maximize your writing skills!

For some, writing for SEO purposes and writing to attract and keep attracting your audience could appear as two contradictory goals. I totally disagree with this. Indeed, if you not only want a good but also an SEO-friendly blog post, the words you want to be found on should be in a very prominent place. But, using your keywords toooften severely damages the readability of your text. So, you definitely shouldn’t do that!

In this post, I would like to give some tips on writing blog posts that are both very readable as well as SEO-friendly. I genuinely think those two goals should (and easily can!) go hand in hand.

Elementary writing tips for good blog posts

Before anything, your blog post just has to be a good piece of writing! A lot of bloggers just begin to write when creating a new blog post. They just type what comes to mind. For some, this may be sufficient, because they are natural writing talents. Others might need some help. I always follow the next set of ‘rules’ myself.

1. Think before you write!

Think hard about the message of your text. What do you want to tell your readers? And what’s the purpose of your text? What do you want your readers to do at the end of the page? Write down the answers to these questions before you begin writing.

2. Write down the structure of your blog post.

Start your post with creating a clear structure. Every post should have some sort of introduction (in which you introduce your topic), a body (in which the main message is written) and a conclusion (which should summarize the most important ideas or deduce some new idea). Write down what you want to write in all these three sections. You now have a kind of summary of your post. The real writing can begin!

3. Use paragraphs.

Everybody uses paragraphs, but make sure to use paragraphs that make sense. Do not start a new sentence on a new line, just because it looks nice. There should be a reason for making a new paragraph. Every paragraph should have a main idea or a main subject. Ask yourself what the main idea of each paragraph is. You should be able to grasp that main idea in only one sentence. If you need more sentences, you simply need more paragraphs!

4. Use headings.

Headings structure the entire page, so you should use headings. They’re important for readability, but for SEO as well. Headings help Google to grasp the main topics of a long post and therefore can help in your ranking. If you want people to find their way in your articles, you should use subheadings. Subheadings will lead people, help them scan your page, and clarify the structure of your articles. Make sure you use your keywords in some subheadings. Not in each and everyone of them though, as it will make the text unreadable.

5. Use signal words.

Signal words help people to scan through your text and help people to grasp the main idea. Let’s say, for instance, that there are three reasons for people to buy your product. You should use signal words like: ‘first of all’; ‘secondly’ and ‘finally’. Also, words as ‘nevertheless’, ‘surely’ and ‘indeed’ give a clear signal to your readers. Readers will instantly get that a conclusion will follow after words like ‘consequently’, ’so’ or ‘for this reason’. Signal words are therefore very important to structure your text.

6. Let other people read your post.

Before publishing your post, let someone else read your post first. Ask him/her whether he understands the main idea of your post. Correct typos and sentences that aren’t formulated correctly.

7. Optimize the length of your article.

Make sure your articles have a minimum of 300 words. Google likes long articles, if your article is too long though it might scare away users. So try to stop at around 700 words. And, as a general rule of thumb: try to put your search terms in about 1 to 2 percent of your text. So in an article of 300 words, you should mention your search terms 3 to 6 times.

8. Link to previous content.

If you already wrote some content about the topic of your current post, don’t forget to link to these posts. It will make your post stronger because you show some authority on the subject. Next to that, your link structure is important for your ranking in Google as well. You should readJoost his post about cornerstone articles if you want to read more about this.

9. Add content regularly.

Adding actual and functional information to your website will give Google the idea that your website is alive. If it’s not an active website, Google will crawl it less often and it might become less appealing to Google to include the page in the search results.

10. Use our Yoast SEO plugin.

Our SEO plugin helps you write an SEO-friendly blog post. You start by choosing your focus keyword. This is the most important search term you want people to find this particular page for. Our plugin checks your post to see whether you use the keyword in the right places, and it measures many other aspects of the text. These are the most important ones:

The plugin allows you to formulate a meta description.The plugin analyzes the text you write. It calculates aFlesch reading ease score, which indicates the readability of your article.It checks whether or not you used your keyword in 5 important locations: the article-heading, the title of the page, the URL of the page, the content of the article and the meta-description.The plugin also checks the presence of links in your article and the presence of images in the article.It calculates the number of words and the density of usage of the focus keyword in the article.Above that, the plugin also checks whether or not other pages on your website use the same focus keyword, to prevent you from competing with yourself.

If you write a relatively SEO-friendly blog post (based on the aspects mentioned before) the plugin will indicate this with a green bullet. Writing pages with green bullets will help you improve the ranking of the pages on your website.

Note that not every dot has to be green for the overall score to be “good”. For instance, these are the results of this post, which does have a “good” score:

If you’re not on WordPress, we also have this Page Analysis tool available on our site. It’s still in beta, so we’d love your feedback!

Conclusion

MUST READ : All you need to know about solar drying

1. Introduction
The importance of dried foods cannot be overestimated. The kitchens and food stores in any country will confirm the quantity and diversity of dried foods in use. The list of foods is impressive. Grains, fruits, vegetables, spices, meat, fish, nuts and beverages
such as tea and coffee are all dried and consumed in large quantities around the world.
Drying may be required for several reasons. Firstly and most often, water is removed from the fresh crop to extend its useful life. The dried product is later re-hydrated prior to use in order to produce a food closely resembling the fresh crop. Dried vegetables are an example of this drying application. Secondly, a crop may require drying so that it can be further processed. For example, many grains are dried so that they can be ground into flour. Finally, fresh crops are sometimes dried so that a new product, distinctly different from its original form, can be produced. Sultanas, the dried form of grapes, are an example of this drying application.
The importance of food drying is likely to increase. The global population is predicted
to exceed eight billion by the year 2025 (Cliquet and Thienpont, 1995). Food production
must therefore be increased to meet the rising demand but this is unlikely to come from
simply growing crops on previously unculti
vated land (Dyson, 1996). One strategy to
increase food supplies is to minimize crop wastage. In developing countries alone, the
minimum estimates of post-harvest losses, including those from poor drying, vary
between 10-20% (Pariser, 1987). A 1978 report by the National Research Council of the
National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C., cited by Salunkhe and Kadam
(1998), puts post-harvest losses as high as
30-40% in both industrialized and developing
countries.
In addition to foods for human consumption there are many other products that require
drying. These include organic crops like timb
er and rubber and inorganic materials like
paint. All of the above arguments emphasize the importance of drying in people’s lives.
However, according to Mujumdar (1990), "drying .... is the most energy-consuming
industrial process". It requires approximately
2.4 MJ to evaporate one liter of water. To
dry one metric ton of most fruits in a conventional dehydrator to the safe moisture
content for long-term storage requires approximately 100 liters of oil.
The shortage of energy is an issue in
many countries, particularly those in the
developing world. Even where conventional en
ergy is plentiful, there is pressure to
reduce the amount of fossil fuels used. Concern over global warming is universal and
this has focused our attention on energy intensive processes like drying where fossil
fuels can often be replaced by renewable
and non-polluting sources of energy. Drying
one metric ton of fruit in a conventional
dehydrator produces approximately 300 kg of
carbon dioxide.
Solar energy is an obvious energy source for drying various products, particularly food
crops. Many crops are harvested in the
summer months and are usually dried at
temperatures below 70
0
C - a temperature which can be readily attained by solar
technology. The growers dry many crops at the point of production themselves so there
is usually adequate land area available for the solar drying system.
Some solar technologies like photovoltaic cells and water heaters have become
increasingly popular, but solar dryers are less
widespread in use and therefore less well
understood. This article presents an overview
of solar dryer types and their applications.
It discusses the performance of these drye
rs and the other non-technical factors that
influence their acceptance in both industr
ialized and developi
ng countries. The
methodologies used to design solar dryers are described. Initially some fundamentals of
drying are presented in order to understand wh
at solar dryers are trying to achieve and
what is required when designing a solar dryer.

Advantages of solar dryers
Drying is faster because inside the dryer it is warmer than outside.
Less risk of spoilage because of the speed of drying. (if the drying process is slow the fruit start to ferment and the product is spoilt).
The product is protected against flies, pests, rain and dust.
It is labour saving. The product can be left in the dryer overnight or during rain.
The quality of the product is better in terms of nutrients, hygiene and colour.

Disadvantages
Somebody has to stay at home throughout the drying period to chase off domestic animals, to remove the produce when the weather becomes too windy and dusty, or when it rains.
The dried product is often of poor quality as a result of grit and dirt.
The product is often unhygienic as a result of microorganisms and insects such as flies.

1.2 OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
1. To study about solar energy.  2. To obtain knowledge about industrial applications of solar dryers.  3.To Understanding the way of selecting required components.  4. To familiarize with the workshop environment.  5. To get Familiarize with the way of project presentation.  6. To get the maximum benefit of the teamwork.  7.

Are you ready to meet Savannah’s 1st female Governor? Watch ‘The Governor’

Ebonylife TV is set to premiere a new high octane political drama titled ‘The Governor’ with its series premiere airing Thursday 7th of July, 2016 at 9PM WAT. 

The Governor is the riveting tale of Angela Ochello, the Deputy Governor of Savannah State who with no governorship ambitions finds herself suddenly entangled in a web of political intrigue after the untimely death of the incumbent Governor.

As audiences embark on this journey with Angela, we see how with the help of her trusted Chief of Staff, she learns how to maneuver through the rough and shark-infested waters of politics whilst balancing the demands of her matrimonial home. 

The Governor is set in Savannah, a coastal state in Western Africa established in 1964 and extremely rich in iron ore. Known for its widely spaced grassland with temperate weather conditions and unique tourist attractions, Savannah has a population of 15 million people majority of who are fishermen and farmers. The rich cultural diversity and political awareness of the people makes it one of the most politically active states in the country.

The Governor will take constituents and citizens alike through the shadowy often gruesome corridors of power and promises to be packed with lots of intrigue, drama and sometimes humour. Can Angela standup to her rivals and assume her place as Governor? Will the fear of losing her husband cause her to forfeit this opportunity?

Written by Yinka Ogun, Debo Oluwatuminu and Tunde Babalola and directed by Ema Edosio, the lead character ‘Angela Ochello’ is played by British-Nigerian actress Caroline Chikezie (Aeon Flux, BBC’s Casualty, Channel 4’sAs If). Other cast members include Bimbo Manuel, Baaj Adebule, Kachi Nnochiri, and Simi Adejumo amongst others. The 13-episode serieswill air Thursdays exclusively on EbonyLife TV (DSTV Channel 165).

King Adekunle Gold In New Artistic Portraits (Photos)

Adekunle Gold is celebrity photographer, TY Bello’s latest muse.

The YBNL artiste who is gearing up to release his debut album is clad in his usual Adire also played some unreleased music through the duration of the shoot.

TY Bello wrote:

“I’m looking forward to attending his coronation .. I got to hear unreleased music while I made his portraits . …Nothing quite like his sound .. He’s the real deal…!He’s about to be crowned and I’m certain.

I’m a song writer myself ..so I can tell… Nigeria and indeed the world are about to discover their new favorite genius …One day I’ll be boasting about how I heard those songs before they came out .. The idea for @adekunlegold ‘s portraits came two days before he called me . I had just read about Bezaleel on Exodus 31 .. And how God gave him creative genius to work with Gold , silver and bronze .

I had made some art images that emotionally said everything I wanted but just never felt quite right … Bezaleel’s work spoke to me .. My work was missing some metal .So I began to study the use of metal in sculpture and design ….how to bring that into my work

I was trying to figure out which of my artist friends I’d like to collaborate with when Adekunle Gold’s messages started flooding in . .. He sent me photographs of designs and concepts with gold elements and asked me what I thought … I just smiled .. God had gifted me beautiful work and had taken time to prepare me.

I tried to stay calm as I started going on about how I was tying to decode Exodus 31 and bring it into 
my work .. And roughly described some ideas that I had for his album art .. I didn’t need to say much more .. He was completely in. I collaborated with Sobukola Oluwanisola, an artist friend of mine and we decided on using recycled metal built into crowns and deconstructed as pieces for the portraits .

So here are our portraits Rustic and futuristic .. Our Adire clad .. King explorer ..Ready to launch”

Nigerians Would Have To Pay More For Bread – Bakers Association

Chief Simeon Abanulor, the National Chairman, Association of Master Bakers and Caterers of Nigeria has said an increase in the price of bread, one of the most popular staple in Nigeria is inevitable if bakers are to remain in business.
Abanulor said this at a news conference in Umuahia on Friday

He said that the cost of raw materials, such as flour and sugar had skyrocketed and that bakers in the country had been operating at a loss.
He added that “we are helpless because the price of raw materials ranging from flour to sugar, wheat and butter, has gone up.
“It is therefore imperative that for us to remain in business, we will have to increase the price of bread.”
The chairman explained that the Association at a meeting with flour producers appealed to them to review the price of flour downward.
“However, they told us that there is nothing they can do because the Federal Government is not giving them foreign exchange and that they source it by themselves at the parallel market.
“They maintained that they cannot sell below their cost price.”
Abanulor then explained why it had been difficult for bakers to produce bread with cassava flour.
According to him, the Federal Government is yet to provide bakers with an improver called Enzyme that will enhance the cassava flour.
He said “you cannot bake cassava bread without an improver, it will not work.
“Our challenge is that we reached an agreement with the Federal Government that they are going to give us an improver.
“There are lots of potential in cassava flour but the problem is that government cannot provide us with improver.”

MUST SEE!!! A baby born without a skin in India Hospital

A baby girl born in Nagpur, Maharashtra is believed to be India’s first known case of Harlequin Ichthyosis –  a severe genetic disorder which leaves the entire body encased in armour-like thick white plates, separated by deep cracks leaving no skin on the body.



The child was born by caesarean section to a 23-year-old woman from the Indian city of Amravati at the Lata Mangeshkar Medical College and Hospital. The photos are very very *viewer discretion advised*
Doctors say the child will have to face daily treatments and daily moisturizing if she is to survive the condition. They say they’re applying petroleum jelly and coconut oil onto the child’s skin and giving her a special nutritional supplement.
Paediatrician Dr Yash Banait said: “There is no cure for this disorder. All that medical science can do is try to keep the baby alive.”

I Wish I Had My Children Earlier – Peter Okoye

Peter Okoye has opened up on parenting, saying he wished he had his children earlier.The 34 year old father of two told Punch

I wish that I had my children earlier; I was with their mum for years before we got married. I even had them before we got married.  If I had them a long time ago, we would relate more like siblings. If they were teenagers for instance, they would know that their dad is a celebrity and can learn certain things on their own.
On his style of parenting , he said


 I keep it young and fresh. People have turned parenting into something else just like marriage. I still live like a young boy; I don’t want to feel and act old. I want my kids to look up to me as role model. I am inspired by the footballer, David Beckham. I want my son to grow up to become my friend. That is why I said I wish I had my children earlier.
On if fatherhood has restricted him in any way
Everyone knows that I’m a crazy person on stage. I take off my shirt on stage and the fact that I am married with kids doesn’t change that. It’s called showbizness and that is what I do for a living. When I get on stage, I put aside every other thing and simply enjoy the show.
