6 Steps To Handle A Tire Burst While Driving




Do not apply your brake pedal during the blowout since it worsens the imbalance of the vehicle.

Serious accidents coming from tire bursts recently have triggered the public awareness of dealing tire burst incidents.

As reported by FRSC, tire burst ranks as the most feared accident by motorists on the highway since a tire blowout will take the driver off control over their vehicle, especially, if it happens with MUVs or SUVs, it can even flip the vehicles over.

Tire burst ranks as the most feared accident by motorists on the highway

Although high technology has been frequently added to improve tire quality, dangers from tire blowout are still there; So it is essential to learn 5 steps you should know to better deal with a tire burst while driving.

1. First step: Adopt a habit of driving with a safe speed

The lower the speed is, the higher chance you survive and the less damaging the accident would be.
2. Second step: Do not apply your brake pedal during the blowout

This one is tricky as our brains are wired to urge for the brakes when something suddenly astounds us. That said, hard braking seriously worsens the imbalance of the vehicle in the event of tire bursting.

3. Third step: Slowly release the accelerating pedal

Don't disengage the accelerator abruptly. In fact, it is recommended that you keep the same force on the accelerator for a short while before gradually releasing it. In case you’re on cruise control, disengage it right away.

4. Fourth step: Make sure your car keep going straight on

If your vehicle is pulling to one side, it is critical that you pull the steering to the opposite direction to keep it pointed straight or you may collide with surrouding vehicles.

5. Fifth step: Keep your composure

Don't try to make unnessary control. While the most important thing in this misfortune is to keep balance, an overly sharp yank on the steering wheel may lead to a rollover.

6. Sixth step: Get to the roadside safely

Let the vehicle take its course to a halt. You should only apply the brake pedal when your car is going really slowly and almost reach a stop. Signal the turn and get to the roadside. When already being at the roadside, make sure the hazard lights are on to give signs to approaching vehicles to steer away off.

4 Sure Ways To Earn Extra Money As A Working Class Nigerian

Image result for BUSINESS



Extra money is great. At a minimum, extra income is more change in your pocket. Beyond that, it can diversify your income sources and make your finances less vulnerable to a disruption.

There are many types of non-salary income, but one way they're often divided up is passive versus non-passive.


Consider the following ways of making money even from your workplace;


Running a Small Business

Running a small business can be a great way to make money from a source other than your salary. The range of options for small business is infinite. Just for starters, virtually all the "irregular job" items from the previous section could be just as easily arranged as a small business. Instead of painting houses or walking dogs, you start a house painting or dog walking business. Plus, running a business may confer certain tax advantages (deductions, anyone?) which can make it an even healthier secondary income source. The next two ideas can also be structured as small businesses.


Working at an Irregular Job Online

This is just basically about freelancing on the internet. Most of us have so much time for leisure at our workplace, so you can just freelance with the time. I recommend a site called Fiverr for you..

Do you know you don’t actually need the skill to earn on Fiverr? 


Don’t jump out of excitement. That is the reason I discovered so many things when I first joined, and I was happy I took my time to learn the basics and strategies before signing up. 

In the extensive Guide I created, I listed out the simple jobs you can do on Fiverr and make about 100k monthly. It is as simple as ABC.

I consider myself a Fiverr pro having made up to a million since I joined, and I’m not looking back.

The guide I created would help answer all the questions you intend to ask plus alongside my free personal consultation.


Become an Affiliate Marketer

This business can earn up to 1 million Naira in commission if you know the ins and outs of the business.

The secret to this business isn’t knowing all the theoretical jargons like most websites would tell you. It is about being in the business and knowing everything about it.

Affiliate marketing basically means directing a buyer to his product of choice through a personal dedicated channel allocated to you by the originator of the product the customer intends to buy.

The basic beauty of starting this affiliate marketing is that you can make money even while you sleep. You have no need being awake all the time.

There are three players in the Affiliate Marketing world

- The producer (The person who owns the product you intend to sell to the customer)

- The Middleman (Affiliate Marketer) – which is you

- The target audience (People whom you are going to sell to)

There are several places you can apply to become an Affiliate Marketer to earn the high commissions you desire. Popular ones include;

-Clickbank

- Amazon

- Convertkit

- Shareasale, etc.

Due to the technical complexity of affiliate marketing, I have created a money making guide which I believe would help you stamp your feet in the world of affiliate marketing and make money with ease.


Mini Importation

Believe it or not that this is one cash cow business that is open to everyone to make money on the internet. The beauty of this is that you don’t need any technical expertise like Web Development, Web Design, Graphics, and all other technology businesses.

With Mini Importation, you stand a chance to earn millions of Naira by importing things at a very cheap rate and selling at a high price.

To succeed as a mini importer, you should know the business in and out, before you make a move. There are several things you would need to consider before importing mini goods into the country.

- Size of goods: Not every product is classified as mini importation. Due to the increase in the price of dollars, we know the products that would sell and the ones that won’t sell.

- Location to buy: There are so many online stores, so you should know which one would serve you best.

- Target Audience: Who are those who would purchase your product? How can you be able to reach them and sell to them without stress? All these are contained in a manual I have designed to help you achieve all of them.


These 3 sure businesses are very sure ways to make money even from your workplace in Nigeria. If you want to learn more, click the link below;

7 Reasons Why You Should Never Stay Off Campus




There is the feel to teach students and aspirants on the needs to stay ON campus, which brought about the topic : As A Student – 5 Reasons Why You Should NEVER Stay Off Campus. See reasons below :


1) CONCENTRATION: Why were you admitted, to concentrate right?? Staying on campus gives you loads of opportunities to focus on your studies. There are heaps of dialog gatherings to join, bear in mind the instructional exercises as well. Companions would call you to come and read during the evening in one of the lecture rooms. Staying off campus will deprive you of these opportunities.

2) EASE OF TRANSPORT: Staying on campus would without a doubt spare you heaps of cash when boarding transports or taxicabs. Also, on the off chance that you think you got the quid to spill, then you could get found amid RUSH HOUR, where enormous overwhelming folks would tear you into pieces when scrambling for transports. Staying on campus makes you simply have a walk and appreciate the view!

3) SECURITY: This is essential!!! We generally hear instances of assault, theft, ambush and so forth outside the school premises, yet on campus, there are bunches of security watchmen on watch. Indeed, even the man-o-war troops, cadets, and so forth would loan a hand.


4) PUNCTUALITY: when you stay on campus, you have the tendency to be more serious, so you wake up, have a shower, spruce up and stroll down to the lecture theatre , you may get a space in front. Be that as it may, on the off chance that you stay off campus, you wake up, have a bath, dress up, sit tight for the transport for 30mins, the bus may break down, may even tear your new Thomas pink shirt.

5) COMPANIONSHIP: Its dependably fun staying with your associates, campus hostels can never be a dull spot, its like a scaled down town!!! There are comics, touts, comedians, actually no dull minutes!!! There is dependably a hall rep, who is a programmed individual from the student union agent committee, who may even organise shows, end of session dinners, and so on and it has a tendency to be free.

6) TO MAKE MORE FRIENDS : Staying on campus will inevitably get you more exposure to other students, which invariably gives you the opportunity to make more friends on campus. If you are the type that is aiming a political post on campus, you can’t but just stay on campus.

7} TO GET INFORMATION FASTER: Information is known to spread like wind in school hostels. You might not get that opportunity off campus, especially if you are not the ‘Always Online’ or ‘Friendly’ type.

5 Reasons Nigerian Children Are Not Speaking Their Native Language




Image result for Nigerian Language
In the past children spoke Nigeria’s indigenous languages namely Yoruba, Igbo, and Hausa fluently and unashamedly. However, today, the complete opposite is the case. Kids can barely communication in Efik or Idoma without adding a bit of English. The consequences of this are that many of these languages are facing extinction while some of them have gone extinct.

A research that is cited by those concerned to lend credence to the import of indigenous languages is that of former Minister of education, Prof. Babs Fafunwa. The late Prof made a case for the native language as the medium of education for the first 12 years of the child’s life.

Through an organized native language education program, they discovered children taught in the Yoruba language performed better. Regardless, it has not changed the fortunes of these languages because kids have refused to communicate. In line with this, Kikiotolu.com shares reasons children are not speaking their native language.

1. Parents don’t speak the languages to them
Parents don’t speak their mother tongue to their children anymore. In fact, some of these parents when they go for attending events one of the best hotels in Lagos , they order their children not to speak the language. How can such a child learn the language? Parents should speak more to their kids in their mother tongue.

2. It is tagged vernacular
In some schools today, Yoruba, Hausa, and Igbo among other languages are banned because they are considered vernacular. A child who speaks his or her mother tongue would be penalized. So from the formative years of these children, they already have the perception that speaking their mother tongue is bad.

3. They are uncivilized
Many people believe that you are uncivilized or local if you speak your mother tongue. So, in other to join the bandwagon and be accepted, they dish Ibibio for English. This is all in the name of being civilized. Children have also been caught in this web

4. It is not compulsory in primary and secondary schools
While English is compulsory in secondary schools today, the indigenous languages are not even though a child must study one of these languages. Children will think the languages are a joke. Hence, they won’t bother to learn or speak it.

5. Technology
The engagement or interaction of children with technology is entirely in English. Their smartphone, video games, laptop and other tech gadgets are in English. So since many of them spend so much time with these gadgets, they don’t have anything to do with the languages. This is a challenge to Nigerian developers to design tech gadgets in the indigenous languages.

Hence, there is no argument that mobile phones have contributed so much to the development of Nigeria. i share 5 ways mobile phones have changed Nigeria.

15 Funny But True Observations On Nairaland (with Pictures)

Image result for nairaland



Nairaland is undoubtedly the best and most populous online forum in Nigeria (and Africa sef)... Seun I didn't mean to swell your head sha o, I'm just stating facts ni. Thank me later.

We all know how entertaining and educating nairaland can be. As in, this forum has added immensely positively to different aspects of Nigerian endeavours and youth development, aside the informing and entertaining aspects.

In the course of everything, though, I as a member of this forum have made some vivid observations which for sure are inevitable if you're on nairaland. Observations which I'm sure we're all also familiar with. The observations, some funny and some bitter.

Here they are...


1. You'll have noticed that Lalasticlala is undoubtedly the most popular Nairaland personality... Being a super mod, everything virtually rests on this guy's shoulder. He had also from time to time bore the brunt of all jokes over here... But then, ashually, some are true anyway. He loves snakes, I know that for sure. Lala.. I see you bro cheesy


2. With regards to political affinity or association, nairalanders can be broadly classified into two groups:
Its either you're a "Zombie" or you're a 'Wailer". Which are you? Lol...


3. A long post will be made, and somebody in the comment section will still quote the whole thing, making you pass through the agony of scrolling.. cry


4. That moment when nairaland stopped all airtel's freebasics users from viewing pictures or even logging in, thereby rendering the whole thing useless... They left 'us' all like

(Seun, biko, that thing saves lives. Bring it back for us. Please.)


5. When other bloggers see the traffic nairaland is generating on a daily. It gets them wishing...


6. Those annoying OPs who will make a post with 1 sentence and then refer us to their own personal blogs to view the complete thread... Please why can't you just paste the whole thing here to ease our reading? I doubt if they're even actually after sharing the information. Their own is just to drive traffic to their blogs. Please, if you're one of them, biko, I have had enough o. You cannor come and finish my mb for me.
angry






7. Somewhere, all the time there are those groups of people always on the lookout for new (potential Front page) posts like...


8. How they rush to comment all in a bid to become "FTC"


9. The eventual FTC winner now be feeling like... cool


10. Meanwhile, the OP is somewhere feeling himself, watching his 'views' and 'replies' multiply..


11. OP when he sees Lala viewing his thread.. tongue


12. OP when the post finally hits front page.


13. Meanwhile, there exists a group of people (I belong here) who actually don't give a f?ck about what goes on.. They just come to read comments and get entertained. All the time they're like... grin


14. The funny thing is, atimes you don't even have to read the post. Just come down to the comments, you'll find out what's its all about.


15. And lastly, whenever you think you're jobless, just remember that there are people who are found online on nairaland as early as 3am scavenging for potential FP posts like...
