Dominzy: Why do you think you should be elected at the secretary general?

M.C.C: There are many reasons why I should be elected as the Sec. Gen. Like they say, politics is a dangerous game and I personally don't like involving myself with anything that will tarnish my image.  Though, looking at what is happening presently in the academic system of FUTO, you will notice that the cordial relationship between the management and the student is no longer there and that is why I, Martins Chima C. will take it as one of my agenda to at least find a way to restore the relationship between the management and the student.

Dominzy: What do you consider to be your best strength?

M.C.C: What I consider to be my best strength is my leadership experience. I have been a leader from my primary school up till today. So, my central knowledge is enveloped in leadership. Before others will start developing ideas in solving problems, I, having been in the leadership positions will be steps ahead of them and push Nigerian students to a greater level.

Dominzy: Do you see yourself winning this election and why?

M.C.C: Yes. I see myself winning 100% because I believe good things comes to good people. I have good agendas and I believe that both the Nigerian students and the school management likes good things.

Dominzy: When you eventually become the secretary general, how will you help in solving the current numerous problems in the school hostels?

M.C.C: OK. Like I said earlier on, one of my agenda is to bring back the relationship between the school management and the students.  When we the students have good relationship with their school management, they will always like to help us whenever we encounter problems. I will help in penning down to the management to come to our rescue.

Dominzy: What challenges are you facing as regards this election?

M.C.C: I am facing Challenges like combining my Lectures and reaching out to people for the elections altogether. it has not been easy to me but all thanks to God

Dominzy: SECret in my GENe, what is it all about?

M.C.C: It means I have the charisma the guidelines on how to handle the post of SUG SEC GEN  if I am elected as the SEC GEN

Dominzy: What message do you have for FUTO students reading this interview?

M.C.C: What I have to say to FUTO students is that I am saying I'm the best candidate, but I know that I'm better than the rest and I want them to believe that "Hoc es verum et nihilinisi verum" which means whatever I'm saying here is the truth and nothing but the truth. So I want them to join Team MCC in working together just to see that there is betterment in our generation because Team MCC have the SECrete in our GENe.

Dominzy: Okay, that will be all for now. Thank you so much for the wonderful time.

M.C.C: It's my pleasure.  

Whatsapp Live Location Sharing: The Latest Added Feature On Whatsapp

Out of all of Facebook's various properties, WhatsApp definitely isn't the fastest when it comes to adding new features or catching up with competitors in that regard. But it does still launch new functions from time to time, and today we're talking about live location sharing.
This has been seen before in apps such as Google Maps and even Facebook Messenger - the launch in both of those cases happened back in March. Seven months later, the feature is finally ready to be added to WhatsApp

It will be rolling out "in the coming weeks" in the chat service's Android and iOS apps. Live location sharing is end-to-end encrypted and you can control who to share with and for how long. You're also able to stop sharing at any time.
To start live location sharing, open a chat with the person or group you want to use it with, choose the Attach button then Location - the new Share Live Location option is what you want to pick of course. Choose for how long you want to share and tap Send. That's it.
If you're sharing to a group chat, every person in that group will be able to see your real-time location on a map. And if more than one person shares their live location, all of their whereabouts will be visible on the same map for added convenience.

Whatsapp Plans To Introduce Group Voice Call

GROUP VOICE CALLS will be one of the next features!

Unfortunately there is actually nothing that we can show you as above mentioned, seen that WhatsApp is internally working on it, but when WhatsApp will add something more that will be possible to show, we will immediately publish all screenshots and information.
We can already tell that, seen that this feature requires a lot of development, it will be available for the next year, so don’t expect too much to see this feature in WhatsApp soon. WhatsApp has other priorities right now, for example the imminent RECALL release.

All You Need To Know Before Joining The Nigerian Army

Things You Didn’t Know About Those Commissioned Into the Nigerian Army

This article on the different commissioned officers in the Nigerian Army, will help clear the confusion lingering in the minds of civilians that want to take up a career in the Nigerian Army.

There are 5 types of commission in the Nigerian Army (NA) – Not Armed Forces.

They are:

1. Regular Combatant (RC). Training takes 5 years.

2. Short Service Combatant (SSC). Training takes 6 – 9 months.

3. Direct Regular Combatant (DRC). Now attained on conversion from DSSC.

4. Direct Short Service Combatant (DSSC). Training takes 6 – 9 months.

5. Executive Commission (EC). Training takes 2 – 3 months.

Details of such commissions are to be found in the Harmonized Terms and Conditions of Service (TACOS) for officers of the Nigerian Armed Forces but a summary goes thus: RC and SSC are combatants, trained to fight battles. Others are not meant to be combatants.

Both SSC and DSSC are of relatively short duration (not more than 12 years I think, excluding extension of service) and must convert to RC and DRC respectively to enjoy a longer career. Theoretically, RCs and DRCs can rise to become generals i.e Brigadier Generals, Major Generals etc. Remember the pyramid structure? The higher it gets, the smaller it becomes. In other words, many are called but only a few are chosen.

DRC’s are mainly professionals – surgeons, pharmacists, chaplains, surveyors etc. and are usually not found in the core combat arms of Infantry, Armour and Artillery but are to be found in the Army Engineers and Signals. EC’s are made up of former soldiers and do not usually exceed the rank of Major.

There are varying criteria for the various commissions. In reality, the advantage is more on the side of those who were originally RC,s than those who were originally SSC,s in terms of age, rank in the Nigerian army, numbers etc. However, anything can happen, for instance Lt. Gen. Ishaya Bamaiyi (rtd.) rose to become Chief of Army Staff (COAS), even though he wasn’t originally an RC.

Although DRCs may never become COASs or General Officers Commanding (GOCs), they can apart from being Staff Officers also hold command posts in corps or services in which they predominate. These include Education, Medical and Finance among others.

Life in the Army here in Nigeria can be promising, particularly now that efforts have been made to consolidate emoluments, but achievement of success or wealth in the Army (here in Nigeria as well as is in other countries) is a product of motivation and determination. If you want to live well, you will. If you don’t, you won’t. The choice is really yours! For RC or DRC, minimum years of service is about 15 years and life as a cadet can be quite strenuous.

Generally, training is in the Infantry Corps Centre and School (ICCS), Jaji, Kaduna State. As for the DSSs and ECs, their training is usually less strenuous, not as in NDA where RCs and SSCs are trained. Cadets are usually humorously welcomed with the euphemism, “Unfortunate Nigerians, you will nearly die but you will not die!” But you should survive if you are physically fit after all, many have gone before you.

As a cadet, you are entitled to allowances which may not really cater for your family if you have one but could go a long way to help you sustain yourself.

If you wish to obtain more information on the Nigerian Army and the types of application forms available, you can check with the Army Public Relations Department in any military barracks near you.

For RC, you need at least 5 credits including English and Mathematics. For SSC, DRC and DSSC, you must be a graduate. Lawyers in the army are usually found in the Army Legal Services and the Military Police. They can also be found in lesser numbers in other corps and services.

As for your private practice, it all depends on what type but you won’t be expected to have your private practice as a lawyer alongside your military career.

Lastly, it is also noteworthy to say that the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) now offers some post-graduate courses for those in the military as well as for those not in the military.


Young Boy From Sokoto Sets New Record At NDA

Bature practically swept all the awards on offer during the Passing out Parade at the Nigerian Defence Academy, Kaduna. He was so outstanding his statue was unveiled to perpetuate the memory of his sheer brilliance, focus, hard work and exceptional life of discipline.

According to military sources, by having his life size statue erected at the NDA (a relatively new tradition in the academy), he joins other exceptional cadets before him in the military Hall of Fame.

But he surpasses them all still: 2nd Lieutenant Ahmed Buhari Bature has set a record that will be difficult to match, much less beaten.

22-year-old Bature, from Sokoto State, is described by officers at the NDA as charismatic, hardworking and highly disciplined.

When a child does well, the whole village celebrates him. An elated spokesman to Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State announced on Twitter and Facebook: “He won every accolade on offer. A statue was errected in his honor.”


Bature joined the academy in 2012 to study for a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Computer Science. Through his consistent, sheer brilliance and discipline, he was said to have become a prep winger within a short time.

This means he was training other cadets who joined the academy for short service.

It is said that his going to England for further training at the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst had to be deferred because he had become so valuable at training and mentoring other cadets.

He not only emerged the best in his department; in the final year of his training at the academy, he emerged as the Academy Cadet Adjutant (ACA).

The ACA, according to military sources, is the most senior/powerful cadet, and more or less the de facto administrator of his set in the academy. He oversees all the affairs of his (cadet) set and liaises with the military authorities in the academy on their behalf.



He is respected (indeed, feared) by his set and exercises vicarious authority on behalf of the military leadership in areas of discipline, welfare, training, drills and so on.

Usually, only cadets with exceptional all-round brilliance, and who have shown consistent promise (in all areas of training, academics, discipline, etc) are chosen as Academy Cadet Adjutant.

It is said that an ACA is a potential future Chief of Army Staff, and is so prized, protected and honoured.

As ACA (reportedly the youngest so far), Bature is said to have ‘administered’ over 2,300 cadets, possibly the largest ever in the history of the academy.

Saturday Tribune gathered from reliable military sources that Bature has, indeed, set a record as the first cadet ever in the NDA to have swept all the honours available the way he did.

Young Bature was said to have shone like a star during the Passing out Parade, as he was repeatedly called to receive awards.

Some of those awards include the ‘Indian Shield’, which is given to the best in cadet tactics; ‘Gold Medal Army’, which is given to the overall best among the army (cadets); and the ‘Golden Sword of Honour’, given to the best all-round cadet in academics, military courses, character and discipline.

The Sokoto State chapter of the National Youth Council is already celebrating him as a worthy ambassador for the youths, especially of Sokoto State.

A statement by the chairman of the council, Bello Bala Shagari, says Bature has become “a role model who has proven his worth and that of the young people of Sokoto State.

“We at the Youth Council believe that if the youth of Sokoto State are given the chance, such hardworking and excellent qualities that are inherent in our young people will come to light,” it state.

It then called on government of the state to continue the good work of identifying gifted young people of Sokoto State and honouring them in the best way possible.

“Insha Allah, we will all live to see 2nd Lt Ahmed Buhari Bature become a General in the Nigerian army; the kind of General that Nigeria and the world at large will be proud of.”

Angel Di Maria Sentenced To A Year In Prison



Paris Saint-Germain forward Angel Di Maria has been  sentenced to one year in prison and will pay a £1.76million fine after admitting to tax fraud in Spain.

The Argentine winger defrauded the Spanish government a sum of £1.14million during his four-year spell with Real Madrid between 2010 and 2014.

Di Maria according to SunSports made a deal with authorities to avoid a trial at the Spanish Supreme Court – which found Lionel Messi guilty of similar crimes last year.

He admitted to two separate counts of fraud – each of which will carry a six-month sentence – and will pay 60 per cent fine on top of his arrears, coming to £1.76m.

The Argentinian is unlikely to spend any time behind bars as sentences of under two-years are usually suspended, providing the convicted has no criminal record. Di Maria’s charges relate to the player’s image rights with Los Blancos in 2012 and 2013.

According to Madrid prosecutors, the former Manchester United star transferred his rights to an Irish company owned by super-agent Jorge Mendes, via another holding in Panama.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Jose Mourinho, Radamel Falcao, Ricardo Carvalho and Fabio Coentrao have all been investigated for related offences.

Barcelona ace Javier Mascherano also struck a similar deal do Di Maria’s earlier this year. Di Maria’s admission means he now avoids a high-profile court date.

Messi, also 29, and his father Jorge were each sentenced to 21 months in prison after being found guilty of owing £3.4m in tax payments in July last year. Ronaldo, 32, is due to appear in court on July 31 to face allegations he owes the Spanish tax man £13m.

The Real Madrid star faces no formal charge at this stage and is appearing in court as an ‘investigated person’ and could be fined as much as £37m if he is found guilty.

See Why These 5 Billionaires Still Drive Cheap Cars, Including Mark Zuckerberg

Very rich people fabricate their fortunes on savvy money related choices. Once those fortunes are made, however, they can stand to spend too much on things they don't generally require — like extravagance autos.

Here are five remarkably modest vehicles owned by five of the world's wealthiest people:

Warren Buffett

The CEO of Berkshire Hathaway is well-known for his frugal quirks . He never spends more than $3.17 on breakfast, and he lives in the same house he bought for $31,500 in 1958 (or $260,000 in today's dollars).
In 2014, he reportedly bought a Cadillac XTS, a car with a retail price of around $45,000. It was an upgrade from his previous car: a 2006 Cadillac DTS, which he decided to get rid of when his his daughter Susie told him it was embarrassing.
The business mogul justified the delay, as you might expect, pragmatically, telling Forbes: "I only drive about 3,500 miles a year so I will buy a new car very infrequently."

Mark Zuckerberg

The founder and CEO of Facebook, the world's largest social networking platform, is often seen driving a black Acura TSX, a car valued around $30,000 . He says he prefers the choice because it's "safe, comfortable and not ostentatious."
He also reportedly has a Volkswagen GTI , a car of
similar value.

Alice Walton

Heiress to the Wal-Mart fortune, Alice Walton is now the wealthiest woman in the world after
Liliane Bettencourt passed away this week. Her vehicle of choice is a 2006 Ford F-150 King Ranch , with a modest price of around $40,000
Her late father Sam Walton, the founder of Wal-Mart, drove around the 1979 version of the same truck until he died in 1992.

Ingvar Kamprad

Ikea founder Ingvar Kamprad doesn't like to spend money on what he doesn't need. He once claimed to save by only getting his hair cut when he's in developing countries.
In 2014, when he returned to Sweden after 40 years of tax exile, The Telegraph reported that he said on television, "If you look at me now, I don't think I'm wearing anything that wasn't bought at a flea market."
For two decades, he drove a 1993 Volvo 240 GL . He only gave it up recently when someone persuaded the now 91-year-old that driving it was too dangerous. Originally, the car was worth around $22,000 , but today, it wouldn't go for more than a few thousand dollars.

Steve Ballmer

The owner of the Los Angeles Clippers and former CEO of Microsoft has proudly driven Fords throughout his life because his father was a manager at Ford Motor Company .
In 2009, Ballmer was personally delivered a new Ford Fusion Hybrid by Ford's CEO at the time, Alan Mulally, in celebration of their one-millionth vehicle equipped with SYNC, an in-vehicle communications and entertainment system.
The car's original retail price was around $28,000 .

Sia Reveals Her True Face As She Abandons Her Wig

Sia usually prefers to hide her face under a fringed wig or hats so it was quite a surprise for many to see the superstar smiling as she walked through an airport today.
The Australian singer and songwriter left the the disguises at home while making her way through Los Angeles International Airport.

Sia, 41, flashed a smile for photographers as she strolled through the terminal, looking fresh faced and make up free.
Shunning the red carpet glamour some stars choose for the airport, the popstar was dressed in comfortable clothes for her flight, teaming a loose jumper with beige jogging bottoms.

Sia told James Corden at the start of the year she liked to keep her face hidden while performing in order to maintain an air of mystery and privacy.
While taking part in his Carpool Karaoke segment, she said: “I don't wear this unless there are cameras around. I only wear this to try and maintain a modicum of privacy.”
She added: "I was a singer for 10 or 11 years to mediocre success.
"I was an alcoholic and a drug addict, and I sobered up and I decided I didn’t want to be an artist anymore because I was starting to get a little bit famous and it was destabilizing in some way.

"I thought, ‘What doesn’t exist in pop music at the moment?’ And it was mystery!"
And in a 2015 chat with Interview mag, she added: "When people say, 'Show your face, you’re not ugly.' I want to say, 'I know. I’m not doing it because I think I’m ugly; I’m trying to have some control over my image. And I’m allowed to maintain some modicum of privacy.
"But also I would like not to be picked apart or for people to observe when I put on ten pounds or take off ten pounds or I have a hair extension out of place or my fake tan is botched.'"

10 Equations That Changed The World


1. ISAAC NEWTON'S LAW OF UNIVERSAL GRAVITATION

Newton's laws explains why the planet move the way they do, and how gravity works,  both on  Earth  and throughout the universe. First published in the principia in July 1687, the law of Universal Gravitation  was the defacto reference equation for nearly 200 years  until Einstein's theory of General Relativity replaced it.

2. ALBERT EINSTEIN'S THEORY OF RELATIVITY

Einstein's most famous undertaking is the  generally accepted theory on relationships  between space and time.  First proposed in 1905, the theory of Relativity has both radically altered  the course of physics, and deepened our knowledge of universe's past, present and future.

3. THE PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM

The ancient theorem  which was first recorded  570-495 B. C is a fundamental principle in Euclidean  Geometry,and the basis for the definition of distance between two points. Pythagora's theorem  also describes the relationship between the sides of a right triangle on a flat plane.

4. MAXWELL'S EQUATION

James Clerk Maxwell's set of equations  describes how electric and magnetic fields are generated and altered,  both by each other and by charges and currents . First published between 1861 & 1862 ,they are to classical  electromagnetism what Newton's laws of motion and universal gravitation are to classical  mechanics.

5. THE SECOND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS

Rudolf Claudius' law states that the energy always flow s from higher concentrations to lower concentrations .it also states that whenever  energy changes or moves, it becomes less useful. Formulated in 1865, it has led  to the development of technologies like internal combustion engines, cryogenics and electricity generation.

6. LOGARITHMS

Logarithms were introduced by John  Napier  in the early 17th century as a way to simplify calculations. They answer the questions "How many  X  number we multiply to get Y numbers? " Logarithms were adopted by early navigators, scientists and engineers. Today, scientific calculators and digital computers do the work for us.

7. CALCULUS

The calculation shown is  the definition of the derivatives in differential calculus, one of calculus'two major branches. The derivatives measures the rate at which a quantity is changing.  If you are working  2km  an hour, then you will change your position by  2km every hour. In the 1600s Newton used  calculus to develop his laws of motion and gravitation.

8. SCHRODINGER'S EQUATION

This equation describes how the quantum state of a quantum system changes with time.  Developed by an Austrian physicist Erwin Schrodinger in 1926, it governs the behaviour of atoms and subatomic particles in  quantum mechanics. Schrodinger  equation paved the way for nuclear power,microchip,electron microscope and quantum computing.

9. INFORMATION THEORY

This is a branch of mathematics  that studies the coding of information in the  form of sequences of symbols and the speed at which that information can be transmitted. Applications of topics within information theory include data compressing and channel coding. Research in the field was also instrumental in the development of the internet and mobile phones.

10. CHAOS THEORY

This is a branch of mathematics that studies  complex system whose behavior is extremely  sensitive to slight changes in conditions.  In essence,it shows how small alterations can lead to  consequences of much greater scale.

Rhianna Regrets Giving Up Her Virginity

Rihanna while been featured on ELLE magazine has opens up about losing her virginity, wishes she can go back in time, to the day she lost her virginity, and change things.

The BBHMM singer, yesterday, launched the new collection of her Fenty makeup at the New York Fashion Week and on same day, revealed her latest feature for ELLE where she spoke 

with the magician David Copperfield.

When the magician asked her where she would want to go to if he made her disappear and reappear anywhere in the world, Rihanna said,

Though she has never talked about her first s*x, the singer who is fondly called Bad Gal Riri, often spoke about her experiences with the opposite s*x, and kinky things she likes to 
experience during s*x.

“My first kiss was in high school, and it was the worst thing ever,” she had told Rolling Stone.
“He pretty much dumped his entire saliva glands into my mouth. It traumatized me. I didn’t kiss for, like, ever.”

I like to be spanked,” she continued.
“Being tied up is fun. I like to keep it spontaneous. Sometimes whips and chains can be overly planned—you gotta stop, get the whip from the drawer downstairs….I’d rather have him 
use 
his hands.”

Also, in her previous interview with Vanity Fair, she talked about what casual s*x feels like.

“Even if you don’t love them per se, when you care enough about somebody and you know that they care about you, then you know they don’t disrespect you. And it’s about my own 
respect for myself.

The Vice-Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger State, Professor Muftau Akanji, who disclosed this in Minna on Friday, said the meeting deliberated on the ASUU strike and made recommendations to the federal government on the way forward.
Asked what the recommendations of the committee were, Akanji declined to give details of the suggestions, but said: “We asked that a middle way should be found into resolving the crisis.”
Akanji described the strike as “very unfortunate”, saying that the industrial action had come “when many universities are trying to stabilise their academic calendar. For us in the FUT everything would have been normal this year”.
He however pleaded with both the federal government and ASUU to settle their differences in the interest of the education sector, parents and students.

Scientists From Spain Turn Citrus Into Plastic

Researchers from the Catalan Institute of Chemical Research (ICIQ) have devised a way of producing plastics from citrus peel that could replace controversial chemical Bisphenol A, which has been found by several studies to be harmful to health.


Limonene is a colourless liquid hydrocarbon that is extracted from the oil found in citrus peel. Professor Arjan Kleij, who led the project, told Spanish daily La Vanguardia that the team was looking for a safer, more sustainable alternative to Bisphenol, which has been banned in a number of countries for its carcinogenic and hormone disrupting effects.

“My group has developed a catalytic process that allows the controlled coupling between carbon dioxide and limonene, both renewable substances, to form a polycarbonate which, compared to the current ones, is more sustainable, less toxic, and obtains from an abundant product in the nature and totally renewable,” Kleij said.

Bisphenol has been used commercially since 1957 and is employed to make a variety of consumer goods including water bottles, CDs and DVDs.
The new citrus polycarbonate also has better thermal properties than the present alternatives which means the plastics manufactured from it has a higher decomposition temperature that makes it safer for daily use.
And because it is made with natural compounds it is fully biodegradable.
Citrus bioplastics have already attracted a high level of interest from industry, including a company that manufactures coatings and adhesives destined for food packaging.

The team is now study more of the polymer’s properties – such as mechanics and resistance – in an attempt to find wider uses for it.
