New Parking Lot Creates Annoying HoldUp Around IMSU

The thought of leaving home early usually makes people wish that the weekend never ends but leaving home early in the morning and getting locked-in in a bumper to bumper holdup leaves one very frustrated.

That has been the case here, there has been a delaying hold up at the front gate area of IMSU which has gradually extended to IMSU junction and the entire Samek Road. This was caused by the new development in school. We enquired from one of the security operatives who was directing the traffic and he revealed that the management gave instruction for all cars that do not belong to staff to be packed just by right as one enters through the front gate.

Hence, all cars that belong to students and visitors were packed there, leaving their owners no option than to complete their journey on foot.

We can't say for now what prompted such decision but we know that the resultant effect is not appealing and if this decision has come to stay then there has to be a better way of doing it before IMSU front gate gets a reputation of traffic. 

Human and vehicular movement has also significantly increased following the on-going second semester examination of the school. 

IMSU Students Fight Over Seat In Exam Hall

As IMSU examination which started Monday 9th September with the faculty of Education advanced this week with other faculties joining, Serious fight has erupted at the faculty of humanities examination hall over seat disagreement.  

It was a combo between two students, a male and female over who secured the sitting space first. It was a well heated fight that drew the attention of all students brining the hall to a total stand still for more than 1 hour. It took the intervention of senior student leaders to quell the inferno. 

Infrastructure has been one of the major challenges of the school. Hopes are still alive with the absolute sealing of okigwe campus to IMSU.

Church Where Special Work Are Done For Yahoo Boys
Miracle Church for Yahoo Boys in Abraka.

If you are a yahoo boy in Abraka and still haven’t heard of APM, then you still haven’t been around for long.

APM is a church sterming over 400 members on Sundays and many more members numbering thousands on special programs. The church is still being housed in a plank model, but it’s rapidly developing his new site. The church is headed by the Apostle, a former carpenter turned pastor three years ago.

In three years only, the church now have a branch in Warri, Obiaruku and other places.

Special programs are offered to yahoo boys to enable them have a quick pick from their potential clients (maga).

“On one occasion, a boy was called out and a prophecy was confirmed that he was expecting 10million naira from a client which he agreed. Special prayers and sacrifice were performed and the boy later came to testify.”.

All Sundays, testimonies of confirmation go around the church to the glory of the lord of the Apostle.

“There is no way you will be a member here without picking money. god is truly here”….A member said.

If you are looking for a miracle, this might just be the place but meeting the pastor one on one takes more than membership. You need to be special to see him as well. Only good tithers are allowed to see him or those his spirit chooses.

What JAMB and Schools Do When You Reject Admission on CAPS

As part of the yearly admission process, candidates are to continually be checking their 
JAMB CAPS status and when offered admission thereon, accept or reject the offer. Now, what happens if you should reject the admission? Below is the official update on how JAMB and schools will handle things.

The three scenarios identified are:
  1. Where a candidate is offered admission into a programme and he/she does not want the programme/Institution during year’s admission-exercise.
  2. Where a candidate is offered admission and after acceptance, he/she or the institution is desirous of changing the programme offered and accepted while the year’s admission is still in progress.
  3. Where a candidate is offered admission and he/she neither accept nor reject the offer and the institution is desirous of substituting the candidate.

Agreed Solution (Process) to Address the Three (3) Scenarios 

1. Where a candidate is offered admission into a programme and he/she does not want to accept the programme/institution during the year’s admission exercise, he/she does the following:
  • The candidate would only need to reject the offer of admission and the candidate would be available to the institution or any other institution in addition to the market place for reconsideration (recommendation) through CAPS. This is an established procedure.
  • The quota utilised for such candidates would also be released and made available to the institution automatically.

2. Where a candidate is offered admission and after acceptance, he/she or the institution is desirous of changing the programme offered and accepted while the year’s admission is still in progress, the following is applicable:
  • The candidate will complete and process Substitution of Programme Form which is available on eFacility for download. The Form would read in part “I have accepted earlier to read…………….. and now agree that my programme should be changed to …………..……”. Registration number, Name of the candidate, Name of the institution and any other vital information should also be reflected.
  • The Head of the institution MUST sign the form which would be transmitted to Coordinator of the JAMB State Office for upload for Registrar’s approval
  • Once the Registrar gives approval, the candidate’s status is automatically updated and he/she would be informed through mail.
  • Through synchronization, CAPS is notified.

3. Where a candidate is offered admission and he/she neither accepts nor rejects the offer and institution is desirous of substituting the candidate, the following applies:
  • The institution would forward the list of the candidates to the Board through CAPS in the following format
Registration No
Course Offered
Date of Offer (i.e. date of approval by Desk Officer) 
Reason (if any) for non-response
Remark (to include I want to replace, I want to …e.t.c)
  • The list must be signed by the Head of the institution for Registrar’s approval.
  • Once approved by the Registrar, the candidates would be deleted automatically and the utilised quota is made available again to the institution.

In case a candidate does not accept or reject admission on CAPS before JAMB’s closure of CAPS for the year, the candidate would not be regarded as admitted and would not be on matriculation list for the year. He is not expected to be registered by any institution without JAMB’s admission letter which cannot be printed without acceptance of admission.

Five Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do With Google Search

Using Google can be straightforward, whether you are doing academic research for assignments as a student, finding out about competitors as a business person or just for entertainment. Google Search’s Web, Image, Video, News, Maps and More tabs help ensure you get the kind of results you are after.

Here are 5 things you didn’t know you could do with Google Search.

1. Search lyrics to your favourite songs

Google displays music lyrics at the top of its search results pages when you search for “song name” plus “lyrics”. Now you can find the lyrics to your favourite songs and own the stage at karaoke, as a chorister, a musician or just simply as a music lover.

2. Search by voice

You can also search Google by speaking. Simply click on the microphone icon, say what you want to search for, and watch Google reveal the results. You can find the microphone icon on the right-hand side of the Google Search bar. Go ahead, click and speak.

3. Search health conditions

Search for a health condition and relevant health knowledge panel results appear, providing a snapshot of the condition, its symptoms and possible treatment. Health knowledge panels are available on both mobile and desktop, covering over 800 health conditions.

Did you know Google collaborated with a team of medical experts from institutions such as the University of Ibadan and the Mayo Clinic to ensure that all the gathered facts represent real-life clinical knowledge from health institutions and experts around the world? It should be noted though that the health card feature is intended for informational purposes only, users are advised to consult a medical professional regarding actual health concerns.

4. Find jobs faster on search

Searching for a job can take time. And keeping up with new jobs that are posted throughout the day can be challenging. Whether you are a graduate seeking a job or an employee looking for the next opportunity, Google offers a quick and easy way to find suitable vacant positions. Job seekers can search for, and apply to, open positions directly from the Google search bar. Just type the job query into Google Search and it will give you a list of jobs that match that query. Details of the job posting, such as job title, location, whether the job is full-time, part-time or an internship will be included.

If you use Google Maps integration, you can also search for jobs in any place that you can find on the map, and if you are signed in, you can even see how long it will take to commute from home. Google has also made keeping up with new vacancies easy – simply push the “get alerts” button to get email notifications when new jobs matching your search appear.

5. Google the weather

If you’re planning your day, your week or some fantastic weekend getaway, it is important to take the weather into consideration. Asking Google what the weather will be like wherever you will be heading to lets you know if you will be needing an umbrella or a pair of sunglasses and guide you in your choice of clothing.

If you’re travelling and want to know what to pack, simply ask Google, “What is the weather at Enugu like”, or type in “weather at Enugu”, and right there on your search results page, you’ll get the current forecast, extending to the next week.
Protesters Carry Placard Blaming Victims Found Dead In Port-Harcourt Hotel (Pix)
Twitter users called out the protesters for victim-blaming.

Some pointed out that the murdered women were likely victims of the latest method of ritual killings where online vendors are lured to hotels for business but on getting there they are killed.

Other pointed out that even if the slain women were prostitutes, that doesn't excuse their murder.

The protest comes barely 24 hours after another female victim was found dead in an hotel room in the city of Port Harcourt, on Sunday.

At least, 10 ladies have been reportedly killed under similar circumstances, within the space of few months all in Port Harcourt.

Below are some tweets calling out the protesters;
