Jallianwala Bagh massacre:General Reginald Dyer had ordered his troops to open fire on a gathering on 10,000 unarmed people at the Jallianwala Bagh in Amritsar on April 13, 1919.

5 things you must not do in Singapore


5 Things not to do in Singapore.
  1. Do not stand in the sun. I repeat, do not stand in the hot tropical sun. You risk getting heat stroke if you’re not used to the heat (esp if you are from the Northern Europe). Singapore’s average temperature is 30C (86F). The heat together with the tropical humidity and the concrete urban environment of Singapore is a dangerous combination; Singapore is very close to the equator which makes it extremely humid. I’ve seen European tourists who don’t realize how hot and humid Singapore is, and risk getting heat stroke for themselves and their children standing in the sun. Please do not leave your kids or dogs in the car. They do not realize how fast you become hot and dehydrated in this hot humid land. Singapore has a lot

Which Country is most difficult to invade


Top 3 countries - the most difficult to invade:

1. United States: The whole territory of USA is isolated by the Pacific in the west, by the Atlantic in the east and south and the cold Canada covers the north. The situation is, you cannot just invade USA flying from the mainland Africa, Asia or even Europe and USA would not let you to set up any military bases near the Americas (north/south).
2. Canada: The same conditions are applicable for Canada. Moreover, the geographic location and the weather condition of it remains a matter of tension for the others.
3. Russia: Others can invade Russia but the affected area would surely be very small and very easy to regain for Russia. History shows the downfalls of the invasions towards Russia such as Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812 and Hitler's during the WWII. So, the size and geography of Russia will make the difference.
It will be high risk to plan invasion on this countries

How can you destroy a US aircraft carrier?


A carrier is a floating seaborne airbase. Its main purpose is to launch and service military aircraft. It’s also capable of a number of other things, including landing troops on the shore, but that’s worthless without aerial support. All the supporting vessels, destroyers, frigates and submarines are there only to protect the carrier from enemy attack. They are very good in that, you have to give them that.
The problem is that nowadays even a relatively poor country can build craploads of these things and launch them against a carrier. (i doubt nigeria)

Mind blowing phone accessories most people don't know about.

It’s called a Finger Ring. You stick it on the back of your phone or phone case, and it provides a ring grip that you can put your finger through. This allows you to hold your phone more securely. I have seen my friends drop their phones many times, either while using it or when someone bumped into them. Their screens would shatter or the phone would be completely broken, even with a case.

FEAR OF RENEGOTIATING NIGERIA


There have been numerous out cries from the east, the north, the south and the west raging sorrowful for a get together among the several ethnicities that were merged to make up the Nigerian state. A get together that is supposedly fashioned to create a platform on which a lasting peace can be established among the inhabitants of the so called Nigeria irrespective of its outcome (disintegrated or integration). But ignorantly some group of selfish politicians is not seeing the looming danger it portrays to ignore such a necessity. The oppressed people of Biafra have been advocating for a referendum since there is no room for a renegotiation, this as well has fallen on deaf ears.

Brexit: Get out now, EU tells Britain

European leaders told Britain on Tuesday to act quickly to resolve the political and economic chaos unleashed by its vote to leave the European Union, a move the IMF said could put pressure on global growth.

European countries are concerned about the impact of the uncertainty created by Britain’s vote to leave on the 27 other EU member states. There is little idea of when, or even if, the country will formally declare it is quitting.

“The process for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union must start as soon as possible,” French President Francois Hollande said. “I can’t imagine any British government would not respect the choice of its own people.”

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker sent a similar message, saying “We cannot be embroiled in lasting uncertainty.”

But those who campaigned for Britain’s leave vote have made clear they hope to negotiate a new deal for the country with the EU before triggering the formal exit process. European leaders have said that is not an option. “No notification, no negotiation,” Juncker said.

Delta approves appointment of Obi of Ubulu —Uku




The Delta State government may have approved the appointment of the newly crowned monarch, Chukwuka Noah Akaeze as the Obi of Ubulu-Uku in Aniocha South Local Council of Delta State.

This is against a strong protest by Chief Emmanuel Ejiofor, the Onishe of Ubulu-Uku.
The Commissioner for Information, Mr. Patrick Ukah told journalists yesterday that the government decided to approve the appointment of the teenage king as he has met all the requirements from the traditional council of Ubulu-Uku Kingdom to the local council and the state government .

Ukah assured: “The date for the presentation of the staff of office has not been fixed. There are processes for an Obi to be appointed. As far as we are concerned, there is no petition before the government against the Obi. We have no evidence of any crisis in that community. If there is any, it has not reached government.’’

BIAFRA REFERENDUM IS A RIGHT NOT A PRIVILEGE

I woke up on a Friday morning to the news of Britain has broken out of European Union (EU) in a referendum called by resigning Prime Minister David Cameron. I was not really intrigued with the news but most of my colleagues of Family Writers were excited, little on the victory of the Britons and mostly on the resignation of the hypocritical David Cameron. 

BREAKING!!! You’re Incompetent, Northern Leaders Tell Buhari, Call For His Resignation

In a shocking twist of events, Northern Leaders have called for the immediate resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari, for making a deliberate attempt to dialogue with the Niger Delta Avengers, while clamping down on Boko Haram terrorists.

Controversial Northern figure, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, who spoke on behalf of the Northerners on Sunday, June 26, likened the militant group, Niger Delta Avenger, to a terrorist group, and called on Buhari either resign or deal with the militants, as it has been dealing with the Boko Haram terrorists.

“No forward-looking nation negotiates with terrorists. And I should say that if he does not have the political will to deal with the militants, he should step aside. Governance does not have room for destroyers,” he said.

This is coming, barely 24-hours when the president offered to meet personally with the Niger Delta Avengers, through the Governors, Elders and other stakeholders in the Niger Delta Region, as part of his efforts towards seeking peace in the region, following renewed sabotage of oil and gas installations by the militants

Speaking further, Mohammed, called on Buhari, to deploy its full military might, to deal with the Niger Delta militants.

According to him, it will be an error for the Buhari led government to try to appease or appeal to the Niger Delta militants, to stop destroying oil installations, when a similar group in the North-East, are being confronted and dealt with as a terrorist group.

Mohammed, a former adviser to President Shehu Shagari, cautioned that any move by this administration to dialogue with the militants, and not out rightly crushing them to serve as a deterrent to would be terrorists, could result to another civil war in Nigeria.

“Why is Buhari tackling Boko Haram with the military might, and going behind to negotiate with Niger Delta militants?

“If Buhari is not careful with the NDA he will plunge the country into another civil war, because he does not have the mandate of the law to negotiate with terrorists”.


BiafrExit

Only those who are spiritually blind cannot see that the Hand of God is on Biafra restoration. Only the deaf cannot hear the waves as the Land that flows with milk and honey approaches redemption, never to be subdued again. The Land of the rising sun is rising again. We were never defeated because God's children can never be defeated. We are a chosen race and a special breed.

The world powers rose up in alliance to silence us, but they were disappointed because we are indestructible and indomitable. Today, we have outnumbered those who engineered our extermination- both academically, economically, numerically and otherwise. The miracle is not our own making, it is divinely oriented. 

Like seeds, Biafrans has germinated across the ends of the earth, we are blessed with a type of versatility and wisdom that enables us to adapt peacefully anywhere we find ourselves. We are not suicide bombers because we believe in the sanctity of human life. We are republicans by nature, even before colonialists came. 

Our success stories even in the face of and subjugation and extermination is the envy of our adversaries. How our fathers manufactured their own weapons to save the most brilliant nation in Africa from an impending genocide remains a mystery to the world. How they held a Nigeria backed by world powers hostage for more than three years is still an unfinished story. The colonialists couldn't believe that such a crop of people with so much outstanding talents and bravery could be found in Africa.

Today, the world is seeing the resurgence a Biafra more powerful than the Biafra of the 90s. Nnamdi Kanu has the magic wand. His ideology to always remain whiter than white in all truth and honesty is an indispensable characteristic every revolutionary leader must possess. Nnamdi Kanu knew that Biafra is divine, and he never failed to make the Supreme Being the anchor of the struggle. You only have to hear him pray, and you will see a man next to God's heart and a messenger of liberation. God knows why he struck Buhari with foolishness into arresting Nnamdi Kanu. He knows why He has hardened his heart not to release him. God is about to do something which will shock the World. Maybe we should ask the Biblical Pharoah of Egypt.

Only at the mention of Biafra, a very powerful force of attraction is formed. Biafrans are now more bonded in unity and love more than ever. God is using Nnamdi Kanu to make the impossible become possible. 

Today, Nigeria has been turned upside down for desperately trying to suppress a divine mandate and imprison the voice of truth. I can't wait to write my dirge for the artificial creation which will soon cease to exist. The kings of tyranny, oppression and marginalisation are no longer far from their doom because the 'last miracle' is already happening and any desperate attempt to quench it is nothing more than a suicide mission. BIAFRA IS DIVINE.

Lagos Uninhabitable


Lagos state is one of the major commercial cities in Nigeria with estimation of 20 million people and still rising, of no doubt has a lot of advantages from other states of the federation majorly as a former capital territory.

Workers in Lagos are already used to the routine of leaving for work by 4:00 am so as to beat the morning traffic. As i watch my friends prepare for work i just couldn't stop laughing ... Lol

It's time for the Government of Ambode to come with a working plan and fortunately fashola is Minister for works. i forsee a chnage

HeadPhone for N11million ... hmmmmm


A newly released pair of headphones could be the best ever made - but will set you back an eye-watering $50,000 (£32,400, N11m). Sennheiser's Orpheus headphones have 6,000 individual components including gold-vapourised ceramic electrodes, platinum-vapourised diaphragms, and Carrara marble amplifier housing from Italy.
