5 Reasons We Love Android Devices

Image result for Android devices

The debate on which is the better operating system between the iOS and Android operating system is a debate that will probably never be concluded, however, it is impossible to deny some of the impressive features that the Android operating system offers. Here are 5 reasons we love Android devices.

1.It’s Affordable

Buying an Android device is unlikely to devastate your bank account, and for that affordability it remains an attractive option to many. With varieties of devices, designs and specs, Android devices really have something to suit every budget range and offers a true and enjoyable smartphone experience. Android’s affordability is what has driven and continues to drive its worldwide dominance.

2.It Allows Customization

Another strong feature of Android devices is the fact that it allows customization. Unlike most Apple devices, Android devices let you choose any level of customization you want and this flexibility is what really appeals to most smartphone users. This is because many smartphone users generally tend to want to explore the limits of their devices, and they typically like having the ability to freely customize and play around with features and design of their phones.

3. It Allows For Multi-Tasking

Some might argue that iOS devices also allow multi-tasking, but what they cannot deny is that the level of multi-tasking that iOS devices support, does not come anywhere near the level of multi-tasking some Android phones offer. Samsung phones are a good examples of Android phones that have great multi-tasking features. This is one area that Apple is more or less playing catch-up to Android devices.

4. Its Seamless Integration With Google’s Services

Android devices integrate seamlessly with Google’s varieties of services, and this works just great because Google is largely considered the ‘king of the web’. Apple and iOS doesn’t seem to be able to keep up in this area, and have had to yield to accommodating more Google services on their platform. Unfortunately, the seamless integration enjoyed between Android devices and Google services, is not replicated in the integration of iOS and Google services.

5. There are Widgets!

With widgets you can ‘see all the information you need at a glance’ without having to open an app. Widgets are a major advantage Android devices have over iOS devices, mainly because even with Apple’s recent launch of widgets on their iOS devices, it still remains very limited on iOS compared to the widgets of Android devices that are more unbounded and offer more varieties.

COMMUNIQUE ISSUED AT THE END OF THE SOUTH EAST HUMAN RIGHTS SITUATION ROOM MEETING HELD IN ENUGU ON WEDNESDAY 13TH SEPTEMBER 2017

index.jpg

BACKGROUND:

The South East Human Rights Situation Room is a group of human rights non-governmental organizations working in the South East. Members held a meeting today Wednesday 13th September 2017 in Enugu to discuss the human rights situation and violence in the South East, especially Operation Python Dance 11and to determine what to do. It observed that from all indications, the operation has started ahead of the stated date of 15th September 2017 as announced in a press release by the Chief of Army Staff (COAS).

At the end of the meeting, participants expressed concern about:

1.  The escalating violence in the South Eastern States of Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo States in view of Operation Python Dance 11 and the need to maintain peace, order and the rule of law in affected areas.

2.  Events that have already occurred in affected states such as the attack on some journalists and residents of Umuahia, Abia State.

3. The operation commenced without adequate sensitization and dissemination of information about its modus operandi and the rule of engagement to the people of the zone.

In view of the above the participants resolved as follows:

1.     That the South East Human Rights Situation Room requests for lawful and ethical conduct of personnel executing “Operation Python Dance 11”.

2.     Whatsoever tactics adopted in the Operation must be in compliance with international human rights law and global best practices.

3.     We request the adequate training for military personnel on human rights and the rule of law, especially those who interact with Nigerians on the roads and check points on a daily basis in the course of this operation in the South East geo-political zone.

4.     We implore the military personnel to desist during the period of this operation from intimidation, inhuman and degrading treatment of road users and commuters.

5.      The South East Human Rights Situation Room will continue to disseminate safety tips to members of the public, especially the youths to shun violence in all situations and be Law abiding.

6.     We will embark on a campaign to educate the civilian populace and residents of the South East Zone on the need to conduct their daily activities in accordance with the law and report any infraction to the South East Human Rights Situation Room on telephone number 09060002128; and #HumanRights4SENigeria, Email:humanrights4senigeria@gmail.com

4 Foods You Probably Didn’t Know Originated From Africa

Image result for foods from africa

It might be interesting for some to find out that the following foods are in fact from Africa; Africa indeed has an astonishing lot to offer in diverse areas. We share 4 foods you probably didn’t know originated from Africa.

1.Coffee

Image result for coffee

The dark, delicious and stimulating coffee bean is believed by many coffee experts to have originated from East Africa, where it was first grown sometime in the 14th century. It then made its way to Northern Africa in the 1600s before spreading to other parts of the world.

2.Sugar

Image result for sugar

Sugar actually came from New Guinea before making its way to foreign lands like America via the Middle East more than 12,000 years ago. It is believed that in the attempt of the Arabs to conquer Southern Africa, they spread sugar throughout the region, which eventually made its way to Spain and became popular in Europe and the rest of the western world.

3.Rice

Image result for rice

While rice is able to be grown quite well on foreign non-African soil, African slaves are the ones credited with teaching foreigners (Americans to be precise) how to properly irrigate a rice field and thus grow rice.

4.Curry

This is one of the most widespread spices in the world and though it is largely identified with the Asians, its origin can be traced to Africa from the time of early railway construction to Uganda, when the British imported a lot of Indians who came to Africa with curries.

#MBGN At 30: Miss Kebbi, Ugochi Ihezue wins Most Beautiful Girl In Nigeria 2017

Miss Kebbi, Ugochi Ihezue has been crowned the 30th Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria 2017 at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

From traditional wears to bikinis and to their gorgeous evening wears, in a keenly contested battle, 36 beauties strutted the runway like the Queen that they crave to be.

This year’s edition had 37 beautiful ladies vying for the coveted MBGN crown and a chance to represent Nigeria at the Miss World pageant. They are mostly from the Southern part of the country representing all the states of the nation before Miss Delta pulled out for ‘personal’ reasons.

Ik Osakioduwa and Victoria Pepple  were the hosts of this prestigious event that combined glitz, glam, and of course beauty!

The theme for this year’s pageant is Gender Based Violence – The Plight of the Nigerian Woman.  The outgoing MBGN, Unoaku Anyadike made a passionate appeal to government at all levels to take the fight against gender based violence more seriously. Unoaku, in a very moving speech said, “It is sobering to realise that behind the closed doors of homes everywhere, in the place where women have the right to feel most safe, horrific abuse is a daily reality.” Unoaku, like many other campaigners before her, is shocked by the statistics which show that nearly 50 per cent of all sexual assaults worldwide are against girls 15 years or younger.”

Stunning renowned actress Stephanie Linus was one of the Judges of the MBGN 2017. The other Judges were Her Excellency Olufunsho Amosun, Producer of Banana Ghost Biola Alabi, Gozie Ochuba, Ogechukwu Ochaba
