Christmas Note by Julius,O.Akubo

image

All over the world you see people decorating and furnishing their buildings with Christmas trees and lights of different sizes and shapes. To be candid,most of these decorations are far more than just beautiful,there are rather exquisite. But on a second thought it has being discovered that most of these people go through all the stress of decoration and celebration without actually knowing the reason for the celebration. Its really baffling that so many people are just following the customs of the season.
Any well knowledgeable Christian should be able to tell you that Christmas is not just a time to expect Santa’s gifts. Christmas actually goes beyond the feasting and jubilations that comes along with it. Its a time for reflective and appreciative celebration of God’s benevolence to humanity. Though not exact, the date simply brings to memory the day Jesus was born in the manger far in Bethlehem of Judea.
Its fair enough to celebrate but its disastrous to celebrate who you have not accepted and believed. The birth of Jesus will be futile over a life that has not wholly submitted to him. Don’t just celebrate the birth,ensure that the birth has fulfilled its purpose over your life merry Christmas!!!

image

Considering the Nigeria general elections scheduled for February 2015 there has being a lot of agitations and dilemmas as to  who will finally emerge as the President of Nigeria come 2015. A lot of aspirants have shown interest but from our research its being discovered that the contest as it stands is between the incumbent president, Dr.Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan and the former military head of state Major General Muhammadu Buhari .

Dr Goodluck a 57 year old man from  Bayelsa state is the flag bearer of the ruling party;People’s Democratic Party (PDP)

While Gen Buhari a 72 year old man from Kastina state recently emerged as the All Progressive Congress (APC) party flag bearer.

The two are seriously standing a chance of becoming the next President of Nigeria but who will become the next President?

HOW TO COPE OR RELATE WITH ONE ANOTHER AND THE ISSUE OF RELATIONSHIP IN TERTIARY INSTITUTION by Ocheh,E.Emmanuel

image

Often times most people tend to wonder why life is not really in their favour, most especially in relating with people, they classify some as being bedeviled, temperamental, fraudsters, untrustworthy, hard to come by, difficult, egocentric etc.
This work is aimed at helping us to relate with one another in peace and to accept each other`s weaknesses and also not to make the wrong decision and conclusion in life. Whoever you come across in life as a writer says “is in one way or the other better than you” once you realize this, learning and adaptation will be inevitable, hence the need for us to know or be reminded on how we can actually relate with people for a better and happier society.
Teenage or Adolescence refers to period between childhood and adulthood, often times it is believed to be between age 13-19 years, most at times it also revolves round the mind, the teenage is characterized by maturity and development, emotionally they are fragile, vulnerable to practically everything: failure, criticism, embarrassment, at times feel hopeless and helpless, psychologically they become aware of themselves, want to control their own affairs, want to feel important or be known, this is when they long for friendship of a special person, yet they fear of being different from everyone else, intellectually, they learn to reason for themselves, their mind developing rapidly.
HOW TO COPE OR RELATE WITH ONE ANOTHER
1. Accept and respect one another, irrespective of their weaknesses, colour, sex, the way they look. One way you can make somebody like you is make that person feel he/she is somebody.
2. Show love to one another through your patience, kindness, trust, the Bible says love covereth all sins, often times they are vulnerable to make mistakes and a times be misunderstood. Your love gives them security to make mistakes and try again in achieving their goals.
3. Always maintain a happy/cheerful look (smile always). A smile is like an antidote, when taken, it has a way of healing a wound, amending offences and bringing hope alive. You may not know the impact your smile will have in life until you start smiling to people. So many people have missed it in life because they don’t know how to smile, your smile can be a solution to someone’s problem and your smile can also make somebody smile or his/her smile to smile. Take note, ‘no one can ever make you unhappy unless you allow yourself to be unhappy.
4. Be a good listener, give people opportunity to express themselves, their fears, problems etc. Often times people just need someone who can give them listening ears and when you settle down to listen to people, you will be able to tackle great issues in their lives, don’t allow your answer or your word to stir up anger, always see yourself everyday as a destiny changer or catalyst for success and it is also imperative to understand people’s temperament.
5. Encourage creativity and development, make one another know they can be better than they are with just little effort, inspire them to develop through reading books, planning their lives.
Relationship
The basic objective of this item is to make us know that relationship should not be one of the priorities in school for the fresh students in particular because this is the stage most guys comes around.
Relationship is a loving or mutual or sexual association between two people i.e. a boy and a girl. Another good name for relationship for those in pre-degree, diploma, 100-200 level its distraction or lust. You can’t afford to think about or say yes to a relationship at this tender stage and often times the basis for relationship is abused and it is commonly said that when “purpose is not known abuse is inevitable” so many people are regretting in it now because of wrong basis or purpose, it’s unfortunate that 70% of ladies suffers heart breaks in relationship. Ladies, you are beautifully and wonderfully made, imagine a pot of soup well prepared without salt, it is good and inviting but tasteless, the salt brings out the flavor, imagine the world without a woman, A world without beauty, flavor, colour and shape, the presence of a woman brings out the best in the world and also in man. You are the beauty of your world, the savor of your generation.  Without you, the world would have lost a mother. A saying goes, “save a man, you save him alone but save a woman and you save a generation”. Dr. Myles Munroe said, “if you give a woman sperm, she will give you a baby, give her a house, she will give u a home, give her ingredients and she will give you a meal, give her a smile, she will give you her heart”.
I am saying this to make you know that God created you uniquely with worth, dignity, purpose and skill, don’t allow a guy or brother to destroy your destiny, there is no true relationship at teenage or this tender stage in school. Most people often say that 90% of school relationships ends at the gate, don’t fall a victim of one, Watch out!!! How do you this? Mind the type of friends you keep, choose your friends, don’t be carried away by “everybody is doing it syndrome”. You are unique, stay different, later they will celebrate you if you take your stand. Also brothers and sisters as my friend Nicholas will say  “work on your character and your charisma will take care of itself”.
Finally, brothers and sisters the issue of relationship is not something you meddle with, it is a crucial issue that you can’t afford to joke with at this tender stage.
Take note.
Wrong reasons why people enter into relationship(s)
I have arrived (I am of age)
Everybody is doing it
I can’t wait
I need to be loved
Lust
Questions you should ask a guy asking you for a relationship now
Why me?
What do you see in me that got you attracted to me or make you think I am the one?
What happens in the future if that which you see is no longer there?
Do you think you can cope with my excesses if there is one?
General questions you should ask yourself as a Guy or Lady
Am I really ready to enter into a relationship? (What is driving/pushing me?)
If yes, why do you think you are ready?
How far can I really go in moulding and developing that person for a better future?

image

A French air force jet has been reported to have crashed into a home for disabled people in central France, killing one person and leaving several others injured. The Alpha Jet aircraft, which was on a training flight, came down in the town of Vouvray near Tours at about 17:30 local time (16:30 GMT). Fortunately the two crew members had ejected and were unhurt by the crash. The Health Minister Marisol Touraine after his visit to the scene said a 63-year-old resident who had lived at the home for several years was killed. The uninjured residents of the home reported to be housing about 75 people are being moved to new lodgings. The plane actually hit one of two buildings housing female residents.
Col Cyrille Duvivier, commander of air base 705 near Parcay-Melay, Said the plane had been on a night training flight with an instructor and trainee pilot on board. He described the Alpha Jet belonging to a generation of straightforward planes as being a very reliable design, which has been in service for some 30 years. History has made it clear that It is more than 30 years since such an accident last occurred at base 705.

HIV victims and You by Julius, O. Akubo

image

Thirty-five million people worldwide are said to be affected with HIV/AID in accordance with the Joint Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and the painful fact is that most of these people are not aware of this dilemma, so you can imagine how fast it would spread due to ignorance. But come to think of it, even those who know about it are so scared of sharing it freely because they are afraid of rejection and intimidation. And as it is popularly said “A Problem Shared is half solved” but how can people solve their problem halfway when they can’t share it.
   Aids has killed even more than the two world wars, Korean war, Vietnam war and the Congo war put together yet new people are being infected almost daily due to ignorance. Many of the HIV victims have died majorlly due to dejection and rejection and not the virus itself. An HIV victim is similar to someone infected with malaria only that malaria has some sought of cure. Optimistically I believe that in the nearest future, the cure for HIV and Aids would be discovered, but why we await the cure there is need for proper sensitisation.
The virus can’t be transmitted through a hug, handshake or even a peck as it has been proved by science that five cups of spittoon is needed for HIV to be transmitted through the mouth, so you can imagine our actions in the past. Happy people are liable to live longer so we can make these people live long by simply making friends and relating with them to keep them happy and relaxed. An HIV victim either by accident (unexpected) or by circumstance of environment should know that having HIV does not mean live is over. It has being proven that HIV victims can live their normal God given length of life if only they take their medication serious even though the medication for now only helps to strengthen the immune system.
You have a part to play in bringing HIV to an end, stop spreading it and stop stigmatising the already infected. It’s my dream that in no longer time from now the drug that will permanently cure HIV will be discovered.
