The Good News About This Pandemic

 
What good can come from all this bad?
 There’s reason to be optimistic. Throughout history, terrible events have led to great transformations.
The plagues of the past as well as other catastrophes, such as floods, hurricanes, fires, recessions, depressions, and wars, have led to radically improved infrastructure and revolutionized healthcare, up to this point. Though this may not be a Nigerian reality, it is, in other climes.
There are other pluses too.

Adieu Chairman

Did you ever meet someone who understood life? I mean really understood life so you never had to explain anything too much - you just had to say it, to tell it, whatever it was, it doesnt matter how awkward, or stupid, or ugly, or painful, or even evil, if you just told it, the person would immediately get why you were thinking what you were thinking and feeling what you were feeling? Would get it, and profer a solution if it was required. Did you ever meet someone like that? I did, he died a few days ago.

The Avengers Infinity War

The first thing I didn’t like about it was the title. The previous one was titled ‘Civil War’ so unless they intend to add ‘War’ to all their titles, I didn’t and still don’t see the point. I would have been happy with ‘Infinity Stones’ or anything elseThe next thing I didn’t like was the action starting at the very beginning of the movie. This brings to an end my dislikes about the movie.

The Dangers Of Sleep Deprivation

Do you know anyone who sleeps three to four hours only, and yet wears it like a badge of honor? I do. Sadly, not everyone realizes that the day actually starts when you go to bed, and not when you wake up; and the better and longer you sleep at night, the more productive your day will be.

"The concert though slated for 7pm, began at midnight because at 8pm some of the performing artistes were still having their soundcheck. All the bands had to perform regardless of the late start, so instead of its being a 7pm to 11pm event, it ran from midnight (12am) to 4am the next day. Afterwards i hung out with a few friends from other bands, then eventually went to our room at the hotel. Of course i could'nt sleep immediately, we talked about the just concluded concert for a while, then eventually some of us began to drift off to sleep one by one. I think i slept for about 1hr 30mins then i had to gather my things and rush off, while the rest of my crew snored on blissfully. I had a morning rehearsal with another band i work with." - Christy

General Manager‎, Lagos State Environment Protection Agency, LASEPA, Adebola Shabi said the decision on noise pollution came as a result of the increasing rate of petitions by residents, who were lamenting the frequent disturbance from the beer parlours, clubs and religious houses.

Tips for a happy wedding.

Marriage Boundaries

Being married is hard work! When you got married you probably said something that resembled the traditional marriage vows: “I will love you, and comfort you, and keep you in sickness and in health, forsaking all others, keep unto you as long as we both shall live. And I take you for better or worse, richer or poorer, in sickness and in health; to love and cherish you until death do us part.” But, did you really realize what you were getting into?
