  4. A President's 32" TV By Garba Shehu

    I think the reason that Bayo wanted to have that picture was a burning desire in him, and in all of us, to show that the President is well again, and has resumed his normal life. What a majority of Nigerians saw in that picture was a lot more than that.
  5. AFRITALKS AND THE PROMOTION OF AFRICAN POETRY

    I sat down and wondered why poetry has not been encouraged in Nigeria and Africa at large. It has been a trending reality that websites in Africa that are not literary centered do not encourage poetry. I shed tears on how artistes are only promoted on social media by websites. But there is this website that stands out among websites, this website decided to break history and make history by promoting poets in Africa even though the website is not literary-centered. It took me a shock when...

  8. Breed Conformation part two

    During movement, the back is straight and level. The dog will lower its head 40degree during trot to allow to shift the centre of gravity forward, increasing longitudinal stability and reducing the effort the dog has to expend. Low head carriage(below shoulder blades) and curvature of spine normally seen in show dogs(called slope back) flattens the withers and drops the thoracic vertebrae. Making the dog fall of its hand(goosestepping) during movement. This is unattractive inefficient....
  9. Buhari For Second Term

    The state of Nigerian government under which we are today can be likened to that the Cuban government where Fidel Castro, after having spent about 40 years as the President of Cuba, handed over to his own younger brother, Abel Castro in the guise of administrative continuity. Until his death in 2016, he remained the material president of Cuba while his younger brother reigned in his stead. The present political interchange that we experience in Nigeria today might not be seen as a replica of...
  10. Buhari Is Not The Problem Of Nigeria, Take It Or Leave It

    A piece by Victor Okechukwu Anyaegbuna WHO ARE THE KLEPTOCRATS? Read this intriguing and provocative piece; yet Nigerians refuse to be provoked instead holding one man, Buhari, responsible for all their woes! How far can you push a Nigerian before he reacts like an angry lion? Isn't it a ridiculous mockery and insult that Nigerians are the only world citizens that when pushed to the wall, spend more energy to break the wall and cross over rather than fight back? Read this and let's know...

  12. Child-Raising: The Unacceptable African Model

    There is a relationship between how we raise children in Africa and economic growth. We place unnecessary constraints on children in Africa, especially Nigeria, and raise them in an environment of fear and blind obedience in spite of personal beliefs. Most children are forced to pursue the passions of their parents and not their own, resulting in wasted talent since everyone wants to be a doctor, engineer or lawyer. They are forced to embrace their parents' ideologies instead of developing...
  13. Consanguineal Importance to Dog Breeding

    5/5,
    Whether you studied biology/genetics, animal science, or not; if you stick two dogs together to usher into the world a new life, you are an animal/breed conservationist. Begin to act like one! Every day, an influx of imported stocks grace our shores despite the economic downturn. What the breeding circle fail to realize is that they contribute immensely to the economy of their countries whether the government is yet to agree or not, or there's yet to be a statistical data to support this....

  15. Early Neurological Stimulation

    Surprising as it may seem, it isn't capacity that explains the differences that exist between individuals because most seem to have far more capacity than they will ever use. The differences that exist between individuals seem to be related to something else. The ones who achieve and outperform others seem to have within themselves the ability to use hidden resources. In other words, it's what they are able to do with what they have that makes the difference. In many animal breeding...
