The African State and the Effect of Its Sino-Relations.


Friday, April 27th, 2012  

Over the years, Africa, being home to majority of the developing countries of the world, has been and remains the continent where the most products – both original and sub-standard – are being dumped, making the African continent a dumping ground. Also, Africa, being home to mainly third world countries, has been and continues to be exploited by the developed countries of the world. Significant hazards in this regard include the signing of unfavourable trade agreements which are unhealthy to the African state, both economically and environmentally.  A vivid example of these exploits can be seen with the foreign oil companies in Nigeria, which employ methods of extraction of oil that pollute and destroy the surrounding land and water and the environment, making it hard to farm and fish. It is important to note that these oil companies do not do much to stop this pollution and they do not make any attempt to clean the environment or pay compensation to the affected communities for the destruction.

Abortion Rights Of Women.


Friday, April 27th, 2012  

Pro - Life Library 46 Information links · Pro - Life Articles

Advocates for gender equality and the recognition of women as not inferior to men, but as their counterparts, often contend that the only difference between a man and a woman lies in the structure of the reproductive organs. Hence, they assert that a woman is merely ‘a man with a womb’. However, this ‘minor’ difference has in practice proven to have far-reaching consequences, which sometimes lead to an election between the two greatest forces in the world; life and death.

One of such consequences is the dilemma faced when a woman has to determine whether or not she wants another life to spring forth from her. In other words, the determination of whether she wants to carry a pregnancy to its full term or she wants to terminate it.

In fact, the issue of abortion has proven to be one area where the opinions of people are strongly divided, with each side of the divide having firm legal, religious, and philosophical bases in support of their views.

ENTERPRENEURSHIP AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE: VITAL TOOLS FOR NIGERIA’S ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT


Monday, April 23rd, 2012  

www.theentrepreneur.my

Entrepreneurship and corporate governance are two vital tools in the development of any country which must not be overlooked. Their usefulness and unquestionable importance cannot be over-emphasized. According to Jeff Hawkins, lecturer at the Stanford University, ’entrepreneurship’ is the act of being an entrepreneur, which can be defined as one who undertakes innovations, finance and business acumen in an effort to transform innovations into economic goods. Corporate governance, on the other hand, is ’the system by which companies are directed and controlled’. It involves a set of relationships between a company’s management, its board and stakeholders. It deals with prevention and mitigation of the conflict of interest of stakeholders.

Get Rich or Learn Trying…


Friday, April 20th, 2012  

Picture from bigcitybeerbudget.blogspot.com/2010/11/personal-finance-books.html

From a country boasting of a human power of over 165 million people, an appreciable portion of the age pyramid within the youth bracket, the value of young enterprise can sparingly be exaggerated.  In Nigeria, it would seem that the heavens show favor by providing just the right ingredients for the next economic boom- underutilized resources, a shortage in people-oriented services, socio-economic hardships, poverty and, most importantly, (a personal favorite) the young and restless.

Inhibitions may raise a red flag at this juncture; it is by no means an error. Perceived independently, each of the above so called ingredients creates a further myriad of problems which this article need do little to restate. But taken together, mixed down and shaken over, the keen eye begins to see what appeared not to be. And to what shall we ascribe that which we can perceive only by our 6th sense? Necessity.

The Importance Of Research And Writing


Monday, April 9th, 2012  

One of the oldest characteristics, habits, or even hobbies of man has been his innate need to put down his thoughts. One might associate this characteristic with another innate need to communicate; the early men for example, however unintelligent their scribbles and drawings seemed, wrote on walls for reasons humanity would continue to speculate till the end of time. Further down the history ladder, we have the more organized Egyptians who wrote more intelligently on their walls and on the papyrus. Thus, the modern man has inherited this trait, as writing has become a necessity.

Writing is basically about communicating with oneself and with others. Aside from the fact that writing is an inescapable part of my everyday life, writing has made my life. I always encourage my friends to make writing a part of their daily routine; my slogan is “just write a few hundred words everyday”; most people ask why?

Seven Questions …


Monday, April 9th, 2012  

Writer, Author of “the way of the Africans”, and Professor of African Regional Affairs, Edward Guillotine, talks on African youths, regional growth, African unity and leadership

Q:You lecture at the Foremost University on African Regional Affairs. What is the experience like?

A: Well, after finishing my doctorate in African Relations, and writing a couple of theses on and around the same topic, it follows very much that I should specialize in this area of life in my lectures. Lecturing my students on African Regional Affairs has been a joy, and I have helped open many future entrepreneurs to the dangers that exist in investing in a volatile Africa, as against stable American and European countries.

Q: Your last reply and many of your articles seem to tilt almost on the verge of racism. What will be your reply to the talk that you are racist?
