The 2 Sides of Success


By Kelechi Nwaorgu

Aesop's fable "The Goose and the golden egg" is the story of a poor farmer who one day visits the nest of his goose and finds at her side, glittering golden egg. Though he suspects it to be a trick, he decides to take it home, where he learns, to his delight, that the egg is actually pure gold.
Every morning thereafter, the farmer gathers one golden egg from the nest of the goose and soon becomes fabulously wealthy. As he grows rich, however, he also grows greedy and impatient with the output of the goose. Finally, in an attempt to get at once all the gold in the goose, he kills and opens it, only to find nothing.
The moral of this fable has a modern ring to it. True effectiveness is a function of two things
1. What is produced (the golden egg); and
2. The producing asset, or capacity to produce (the goose)
Like the foolish farmer, we often emphasize short-term results at the expense of long term prosperity. Effectiveness lies in the balance between- what we call the "P/PC" balance:
P stands for the production of desired results, the golden egg;
PC stands for production capability, the ability or asset that produces the golden eggs.
Excessive focus on "P" results in the run in the health, worn out machines, depleted bank accounts and broken relations.
Too much focus on "PC" is like people who run 3 or 4 hours a day, bragging about extra ten years of life it creates, unaware that they are spending them running.
Time and chance presents us with great opportunities, whether we take advantage of them is another thing entirely.

Education system at risk due to JAMB latest policy - ASUU

The latest infamous policies of JAMB which includes, reassignment
of candidates to
institutions different from their preferred choice, has
not augured well in the Academic community. Latest
to voice their displeasure at the draconian policies is
the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU),
University of Ibadan chapter.
Professor Segun Ajiboye the Union Chairman made a call to President Muhammadu Buhari to call the Registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board Professor Dibu Ojerinde to order.
He also added that Jamb must respect candidate' choice preference and also consider security, cost proximity and the rights of the Nigerian child before arriving at any policy.
JAMB had earlier announced that students who did not meet a university's cut off mark would be re-assigned to other schools, a decision which affected thousands of students who were to apply for the Post- UTME at the University of Lagos.

Diezani Allison Madueke Critically Ill

‘Let Our Daughter, Diezani Be’
Some family members of the immediate past minister
of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Allison-
Madueke have appealed to Nigerians, especially her
critics to let her be.
Mrs Allison-Madueke is said to be in a critical
condition from an undisclosed ailment in a London
hospital.
“Our daughter has been in hospital where is receiving
treatment for some weeks now. She is currently
under close medical observation. We learnt that the
observation means that she has been unable to see
anyone outside close family members over the last
few weeks.
“They have also discouraged her use of phones to
avoid any risk of infection which will be extremely
harmful for her.
“Diezani is responding well, but doctors are
concerned about her movement and interaction given
the intense treatment being administered.
“It is such an emotional time for us all as she is
quite fragile and we are careful to keep her away
from all the gossip and falsehoods being attributed to
her in the media. We expect the media to respect the
family’s feelings at this trying time,” the family said.
On those calling for the probe of the former minister,
the source appealed for balanced coverage of some of
the opinions being bandied around by different
interest groups.
“The press, especially online media, should be careful
to be professional and balanced in their reporting,” a
family source added.

Reasons why every girl wants a bad boy, but needs a good guy

People are pretty screwed up individuals — or, at least, that’s the way most of us come across. It seems as if almost every want and need we have is closely paired with its exact opposite. What we want and/or need seems to contradict itself continuously when observed over a stretch of time. This can especially be seen when looking at the types of people we date. We date a certain type of person until we decide we are no longer interested in that type. Then, we try to land the exact opposite — convincing ourselves we are testing out the waters and figuring out what exactly it is we are looking for in a partner.

Snoop Dogg says he was victim of 'racial profiling' in Sweden

Rapper Snoop Dogg has accused Swedish police of racially profiling him after he was arrested in the town of Uppsala following a concert.
The artist – real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr – was pulled over on Saturday night by police who questioned him at a local police station and tested him for suspected drug use.
National police spokesman Fredrik Wallen said that test results would not be available for some time, according to Associated Press.

The Drop It Like It’s Hot rapper – who is on tour for his recently released album, Bush – documented the incident in a series of videos on his Instagram account where he told his five million followers that officers "came and snatched me out of my car".
In another clip he said: “They made me pee in a cup – didn’t find s***.”

Landlord’s manhood disappears after giving stranger N700 in Ogun

Tragedy struck over the weekend along Liberty Road, Igbala area of Sango Ota, Ogun State, when a landlord in the area suddenly discovered that his manhood went missing after assisting a young man in his mid-twenties financially.
Narrating his experience, the landlord said, “He looked desperate and pitiful. He said he needed N700 to get a particular drug for his sick mother, though I have never seen him but his pleas really moved me. He said he dropped his last kobo on the lunch he bought for his sick mother and out of pity, I brought out N700 and gave him but immediately I felt something hit me.”
He further stated that the young man thanked him and then received a call which he said “It was successful this time,” just then the landlord realized that his manhood has disappeared.
An eyewitness who resides in the area said “It is not his first time, about this time last week, this man asked me for exactly N700 to get drugs for his mum, exactly the same story but God saved me from giving him the money because I didn’t have any to give actually, he was really convincing and looked so innocent”
The alarm raised by the victim was said to have led to the suspect been caught and handed over to police officers from Sango Otta Division.
It was gathered that the culprit upon being interrogated by the police at the station, started behaving like a mad man and refused to talk, adding that two of the officers on duty tried calling the last set of phone numbers he called but the numbers where not going through.

After All Is Said And Done

This morning, I woke up to hear about the sad news of Bobbi Kristina's death and it got me thinking.
Life is uncertain, and death is very certain. The uncertainty of life is such that one minute a person is taking a selfie and people are loving up that picture and the next minute, that same picture is on people's instagram page as memorial. That is also when you realise that all is truly vanity. All the struggling, hustling, scheming is just vanity and you would leave the earth without anything you have worked for.
So what do you want to be remembered for? What do you want people to know you as?

PDP condemns Ambode’s N39bn loan

The Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has berated Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for “hastily” obtaining a N39.4bn loan from the World Bank.
In a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, on Sunday, the Lagos PDP advised the governor to rescind the decision to borrow pending the book check on all previously obtained loans in the state, especially by the last administration of ex-Governor BabatundeFashola.
The PDP also described Ambode “as weak to fight corruption and block leakages” in the state.
“The party’s positions are on the heels of the reports of another World Bank loan and the recent announcement by the governor to scrap the state’s finance and administration department while renaming its administration and human resources department,” the statement said in part.

Roadblocks are ineffective, hence their removal – IGP

The Nigerian Police force would keep its resolve to totally wipe out roadblocks from Nigerian roads, as it is not a healthy way of policing in the country. This were the words of the Inspector- General of police Mr. Solomon Arase who also said plans were in top gear for the implementation of a reform in the police, including human rights and intelligence gathering. 

The IGP, who spoke shortly after a ceremony organised in his honour by the Ora-Ekpen Development Association, Sabongida-Ora, Owan West Local Government Area of Edo State, also gave the assurance that the Nigeria Police would continue to crack down on cultism and other forms of criminality in the country. Speaking on the roadblocks, he said “the roadblock was not a panacea or crime prevention strategy. It is an avenue that creates social friction between us and the members of the public.

Nigeria loses 195,000 children to Pneumonia every year

Nigeria loses its under five year old children more to pneumonia than any other disease. This startling revelation was disclosed by the Director of Projects, Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria-Partnership for Advocacy in Child and Family Health, PSN-PACFaH, Remi Adeseun. 
He said pneumonia claims the lives of about 195,000 children annually, while about 124,000 others die of diarrhoea. Speaking, yesterday, at a dialogue and media roundtable with key stakeholders in Kaduna, Adeseun described pneumonia and diarrhoea as silent child killer diseases that had yet to received the necessary attention. 
Quoting a recent World Health Organisation, WHO, statement, Adeseun said pneumonia alone was the biggest killer of under-five children worldwide, noting that various intervention initiatives had been able to reduce pneumonia mortality from four million in 1981 to just over one million in 2014. 
“The disease still accounts for nearly one fifth of childhood deaths worldwide,” Adeseun said. He explained that the roundtable was designed to sensitise pharmacists and media practitioners on the overview of WHO’s new treatment guideline for children under five years suffering from pneumonia and diarrhoea. 

He said: “The most suitable formulation for children is dispensable Isamoxicillin and the dosage is based on the child’s weight and because of the risk associated with under or over dosing, it is crucial that paediatrics formulation have flexibility dose for adjustment and that is the reason for the dialogue. “Nurses, doctors and pharmacists from across Kaduna State have come together to deliberate on how we can improve the health status, especially that of Kaduna’s children.”

Boko Haram is losing this war – General Muazu

Nigerian graduates are globally competitive – Unilorin VC

The Vice-Chancellor of University of Ilorin (Unilorin), Prof. Abdul Ambali, has said that Nigerian graduates are competing favourably with their peers from across the world. Ambali said that Nigerian graduates were able to compete favourably because of the acceptable standard of education in the country. 

The vice-chancellor, who said this in an interview with NAN on Monday in Abuja, added that Nigerian graduates had always acquitted themselves creditably in the Diaspora. “I think the standard is acceptable because if you look at our graduates anywhere you go around the world and you see them, they are working in high places and they are proving themselves. “So if the standards were lower they would not be able to compete with their peers where they are now. So, to me it is a relative term because the standard in not falling to me.

Wenger – The positives from this weekend

Walcott celebrates scoring against Wolfsburg
Arsène Wenger says Arsenal’s defensive stability and incisive passing impressed him the most during the Emirates Cup. The Gunners lifted the trophy on Sunday for the first time since 2010, after beating Lyon and Wolfsburg without conceding a single goal. Arsenal scored six times in Saturday’s opener and, while the manager was happy with his team’s attacking verve, he was also pleased with their strength at the back.
The young players who played were convincing as well so you could see that it’s a photo of the present and of the future as well

How Saraki Lost Opportunity To Quench Senate Fire - And For Those Who Think That Tinubu's Star Can Be Dimmed They Are Deceiving Themselves.


 
I believe very much in the party supremacy and the rule of law otherwise I have no business being in the senate. As much as I respect the views and choices of my other colleagues, we must also recognise the fact that politics is fluid. When we started, it was healthy to have brothers to compete for a post, someone would emerge winner. The issue of zoning came up but it wasn't resolved and even up until now, it remains a speculation that some governors recommended that the senate presidency must go to a particular zone, but it was neither mentioned nor confirmed up till now. So it was still healthy to have two people from different zones competing for a post.

Medical Student Commits Suicide After Being Withdrawn From School

A medical student of Benue State University, Makurdi named Idoko Nicholas Inalegwu has been said to have commited suicide due to his withdrawal from the school.
He was said to have fallen into heavy depression after being withdrawn especially due to the fact that he had spent close to 10years in school.
Sources say that after he died, his colleagues deposited his coffin at the office of the vice chancellor in
protest, blaming the school’s action for his death.
Idoko was withdrawn for failing a haphazardly
organised resit exam that has bedevilled medical
students in the institution over the years.
It is said that Benue State medical school is notorious for extending resit exams which are supposed to be done after a preparatory period of 6weeks, to one year and this eventually would add up to the number of years studens spend at the school.

I never accused US govt of helping Boko Haram – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has denied accusing the United States Government of helping terror group, Boko Haram. Buhari’s denial was contained in a statement issued on Friday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina. It was widely reported earlier in the week that Buhari said the US by failing to supply arms to Nigeria was indirectly assisting Boko Haram. 

However, in the statement issued on Friday, the president described the reports as unfortunate misinterpretation and distortion of his remarks at the United States Institute of Peace during his official visit to Washington DC. “The regrets expressed by President Buhari at USIP about the impact of the application of the Leahy Law on Nigeria’s war against Boko Haram and terrorism cannot be construed as an indictment of President Barack Obama and the United States Government who have publicly and privately declared their preparedness to give the Buhari Administration the fullest possible support and assistance.

Police trail robbers who hypnotize victims in commercial buses in Lagos

The Lagos State Police Command, on Friday said it was on the trail of some suspected criminals using handkerchief containing some substances to hypnotise people before robbing them of their valuables. The command’s spokesman, DSP Kenneth Nwosu, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) while reacting to the command’s efforts to curb the criminal activity.
 “The Lagos police are on the same page with the state government in fighting crime and criminality. We have devised strategies to check the suspected criminals. “We want people in Lagos to be security conscious and be at alert, particularly in commercial vehicles. “Members of the public should report suspected persons to the police.

Victims of 2014 NIS recruitment stampede urge Buhari to investigate unfulfilled jobs promise

Victims of the 2014 Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) stamped had urged President Muhammadu Buhari to investigate the unfulfilled jobs promised them by the immediate past administration. The call is contained in a statement issued by Malam Muhammad Sani, the Coordinator of the NIS Victims in Niger, made available in Minna on Friday. 
In the statement, Sani urged Buhari to revamp the Ministry of Internal Affairs and to release appointment letters to the NIS stamped victims. 
The statement quoted Sani as alleging that the NIS recently employed new personnel while victims of the 2014 recruitment exercise were yet to be absorbed into the system as promised. He said “we the affected persons were, on Apirl 15, 2015, screened at the NIS headquarters in Abuja for absorption. “After a while, we got information that our letters were ready. “Issuing the said letters that were purportedly ready for over two months has however become insurmountable for the ministry. 
“Sir, it will interest you to know that recently, the ministry gave appointment letters to several persons who are not victims of the 2014 stampede and they are presently undergoing induction. “Meanwhile, relatives of the deceased shown on national television are yet to resume work, while the injured persons are yet to receive letters of appointment.” Sani then urged President Buhari to look into the case in fulfilment of his campaign promise to ensure creation of employment for Nigerian teeming unemployed youths.

 “We have been screened and we are desperately waiting to receive our appointment letters. “We reject the cancellation of our screening that was done earlier and demand that our appointment letters be given to us without further delay,” 

he appealed. In a reaction, Mr Ezekiel Kaura, the NIS Coordinator in Niger told NAN that the command had on April 15 delegated officers to accompany the stamped victims to its headquarters for screening. Kaura said “we have contacted our Head Office on the issue; I urge the affected persons to exercise more patience as plans are underway to bring succour to the victims.”

David Mnyambugha, Dodoma regional acting police commander, said the accident occurred in the evening as the bus running from Shinyanga to Dar es Salaam veered off the road following a front tyre burst.
“The bus lost control and hit a tree, killing eight passengers on the spot,” said Mnyambugha.

NICKI MINAJ ACCEPTS TAYLOR SWIFT APOLOGY: 'EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES'

Nicki Minaj has accepted Taylor Swift's apology over the VMA nominations race debate, saying, "She gained so much more respect from me. Let's move on."
The debate was prompted by the announcement of the MTV VMA nominations. Nicki Minaj received three, but her Beyonce collaboration, 'Feeling Myself', was snubbed - and 'Anaconda' failed to be recognised in the choreography category.
"If I was a different 'kind' of artist, Anaconda would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well," tweeted Minaj. She then added, "When the 'other' girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination. If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year."
Interpreting this as a direct reference to her own nomination for 'Bad Blood', Taylor Swift decided to respond - a decision that many deemed to be derailing. "I've done nothing but love & support you," she wrote. "It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot.."
Minaj's response was one of confusion, and she subsequently took to Instagram to write, "Nothing to do with any of the women, but everything to do with a system that doesn't credit black women for their contributions to pop culture as freely/quickly as they reward others."
After several high-profile people also entered the debate, and numerous mainstream publications criticised Swift for derailing the conversation of race, Swift took to Twitter to apologise.
Minaj responded, "That means so much Taylor, thank you," adding, "Everyone makes mistakes. She gained so much more respect from me. Let's move on."

The MTV VMAs, which started this whole debate, take place on 30 August and will be presented by Miley Cyrus.
