Naija Inventors

A young but talented boy from Enugu state has constructed an aeroplane with locally sourced materials.

Although the mini airplane has no engine, it looks like a real jet and even can hold two or three passengers.

Sulaiman Famro is a cheerful, 65 year old engineer, and a master of branding. He built the prototype “Farmking” three years ago and claims he can save the country $1 billion a year, just in savings on starch importation.

The Farmking is a one-stop processing plant for cluster and farm-site processing of root crops and grains. It has a diesel powered engine that allows for remote processing, with power out connections for lighting so that it can work all night, if needed.

iphone 7 versus samsung 7

Samsung 7 versus Iphone 6

Comparing both phones to  highlight which phones have a better range of features.

 

Apple is coming to market with a new iPhone at the end of the year and that, undoubtably, will shake things up.

Samsung Galaxy S7: 5.1-inch Super AMOLED, 2,560 x 1,440, 577ppi

iPhone 6S: 4.7-inch IPS LCD, 1334 x 750, 326ppi, 3D Touch

The Samsung Galaxy S7’s display is very similar indeed to the S6’s. This means that once again it is radically sharper than the iPhone 6S’s screen, and once again displays deeper blacks thanks to its Super AMOLED tech.

For those that don’t know, AMOLED screens display deeper and richer blacks by electrically charging each individual pixel when generating colours, letting them create blacks simply by turning off the relevant pixels.

 
GALAXY S7 VS IPHONE 6S: PERFORMANCE
Samsung Galaxy S7: Exynos 8890 octa-core/Snapdragon 820 quad-core CPU, Adreno 530/Mali-T880 MP12 GPU, 4GB RAM

iPhone 6S: Apple A9 64-bit dual-core CPU, 2GB RAM

The Galaxy S7 is powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 8890 processor in most territories, including here in the UK. Our US cousins get the more general, off-the-shelf (but still highly capable) Snapdragon 820.

Whichever chip you get, it will offer radically better performance than the Galaxy S6. Samsung claims that both will offer 30% better performance than the Galaxy S6’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core CPU. The phone’s also got a memory upgrade, with Samsung having loaded the Galaxy S7 with a staggering 4GB of RAM.

 

GALAXY S7 VS IPHONE 6S: CAMERA

Samsung Galaxy S7: 12-megapixel, phase detection, Dual Pixels, OIS, f/1.7 lens, 1/2.6″ sensor, 1.4 µm pixel, 4K video, 5-megapixel front camera

iPhone 6S: 12-megapixel rear camera, f/2.2 aperture, dual LED flash, 4K video recording, 5-megapixel front camera

The iPhone 6S is no slow poke when it comes to snapping photos. The phone’s automatic mode is one of the best we’ve seen on a smartphone and makes it quicker and easier to take great photos without having to get bogged down in complex settings.

It’s only drawback is its lack of optical image stabilisation (OIS), a factor that, combined with its lower f/2.2 aperture meant it struggled to compete with the Galaxy S6 in low light.

The Galaxy S7 widens the gulf in that respect, employing a number of techniques to help boost its low light performance.

For starters Samsung’s loaded the Galaxy S7 with a new 12-megapixel sensor – actually less than its predecessor – that’s been designed to capture bigger pixels, and as a consequence more light.

 

GALAXY S7 VS IPHONE 6S: STORAGE

Samsung Galaxy S7: 32GB, microSD

iPhone 6S: 16GB / 64GB / 128GB

Samsung’s only loaded the Galaxy S7 with 32GB of internal storage. By comparison the iPhone 6S is currently available with 16GB, 64GB or 128GB of internal space.

So, a win to the iPhone, right? Not quite.

While the additional options are nice, and we wish Samsung had followed suit and offered more, the entry-level Apple offering is pretty much hopeless. 16GB is completely inadequate for a modern flagship phone.

Galaxy S7 allows you to bolster its fixed storage with a microSD slot

 

SAMSUNG GALAXY S7 VS IPHONE 6S: DESIGN

Samsung Galaxy S7: 7.9mm thick, 152g, metal alloy, glass front and back, IP68 certified, Black/Gold

iPhone 6S: 7.1mm thick, 143g, Series 7000 anodised aluminium back, Space Gray/Silver/Gold/Rose Gold
The Galaxy S6 was the prettiest phone Samsung’s ever made by quite some margin. It ditched the horrid plastic backs seen on past Galaxy phones, replacing them with a wonderfully luxurious mix of glass and metal. The design made the Galaxy S6 look and feel premium.

 

SAMSUNG GALAXY S7 VS IPHONE 6S: PRICING
Samsung Galaxy S7: Averagely same

iPhone 6S: Averagely same

nigeria china buhari loan deal

Real or Fake News $2bn Dollar Loan from China

There is a news doing the round, Buhari visit to China is to borrow $2bn dollars. This is a huge news if true.

But there is no shred of truth in it. In the first Instance, The Chinese Prime minister invited President Buhari.

According to government, this a trade mission to explore how both countries can increase their trading relationship.

Lets be honest, Nigeria as a country don’t export much apart from unrefined crude.

We hope the government spokes people  can provide more details about the trip. Those politicians leveling those allegations need to provide some evidence.

Lets stop promoting fake news .

nigeria political tool lagos

Don’t be a Political tool

Fellow Nigerians don’t be a political tool for APC or PDP. Rather, we should hold each politician accountable for their activities. Division is the oldest tool in the box to divide and rule.

Whether based on tribal, religious, or geography. Nigerians are well educated, but i notice quite a few can’t go a day without criticizing APC or PDP.  Some people even want a political party to fail,  to prove their theory of the other political party right.

If a ruling party fails, that means millions of Nigerians suffer. We should all route for Buhari to succeed and criticize where necessary.

This fuel crisis have been handled badly. The government deserve some flaks and rightly so.

But criticism, should be geared towards them getting it right.  Not  hoping or wishing they don’t get it right. There by wishing many millions of your fellow Nigerians hardship.

Don’t be a tool. Root for Nigeria to succeed, that is how we can succeed as individuals.

panana leaked offshore account tax heaven

Full List of Panama Leaked Names

This is  the full and comprehensive names in the leaked document.

Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca — which specializes in helping foreign individuals and companies  set up international shell companies to protect their financial assets – leaked the papers to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists to expose the offshore holdings and hidden financial dealings of some of the world’s most familiar names.

 

Our list is comprehensive and easy  on the eye.

Heads of state and government
Current:
Mauricio Macri, President of Argentina

While Macri was mayor of Buenos Aires, he did not disclose his position on Fleg Trading Ltd., where he was the director. The company was incorporated in the Bahamas in 1998.

 

Sigmundur Davíð Gunnlaugsson, Prime Minister of Iceland (Resigned)

The Prime Minister and his wife, Anna Sigurlaug Pálsdóttir, held approximately $4 millions in bonds through Wintris Inc., a shell company based out of the tax haven British Virgin Islands. He didn’t disclose his 50% stake in the company when he took office in 2009, and then sold his share in Wintris Inc. to his wife for $1 at the end of 2009. This is an important revelation, because PM. Sigmundur was elected as an anti-establishment figure against the banking crisis and is quite clearly as bad as they were.
 Vladimir Putin, President of Russia

Sergey Roldugin, who’s a friend of Putin’s, was listed as the owner of several offshore companies that received shadowy money in the range of tens of millions of dollars. ICIJ said “the evidence in the files suggests Roldugin is acting as a front man for a network of Putin loyalists — and perhaps for Putin himself.”  The Russian government has already said it was “obvious” President Vladimir Putin was the main target of the Panama Papers leak. Whether or not the objective of the leak was to smear the Russian president, the findings showed a $2 billion trail of secret offshore deals and loans all pointing toward Putin
 Xi Jinping, President of People’s Republic of China
In 2009, Deng Jiagui, Xi Jinping’s brother in law, became the sole proprietor of the companies Best Effect Enterprises Ltd. and Wealth Ming International Limited, both of which were based out of (you guessed it) British Virgin Islands. It is, however, unclear what the companies were used for.
 Bashar Al Assad, Syrian President

Rami and Hafez Makhlouf, which are Assad’s two cousins, has long been the target of international sanctions and are suspected to be in control of important gateways to the Syrian oil and telecom business.
Salman, King of Saudi Arabia
Salman held an “unspecific role” in a company called Safason Corporation SPF S.A. that owned British Virgin Island companies which took out $34 million in mortgages to purchase luxury homes in London. He’s also the primary user of a yacht that was held by a British Virgin Island company.

Najib Abdul Razak, Prime Minister of Malaysia

Mohd Nazifuddin bin Mohd Najib, son of the Prime minister, has had a wide range of businesses in sectors such as: finance, technology, energy, paints and coatings, and mass transit. Became VP of the Olympic Council of Malaysia in 2015.
 Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates and Emir of Abu Dhabi

 Sheikh Khalifa, one of the world’s wealthiest men, was the owner of, at the very least, 30 different companies established in the British Virgin Islands by Mossack Fonseca.

 Petro Poroshenko, President of Ukraine

 Poroshenko’s assets include auto plants, a TV channel, a chocolate business, and a shipyard. He’s the sole proprietor of a holding company called Prime Asset Partners Limited, which was set up through Mossack Fonseca.
Nawaz Sharif, Prime Minister of Pakistan
3 of Nawas Sharif’s 4 children (Mariam, Hasan, and Hussain) are implicated in the Panama Paper leak. There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the family over their business network in industries that include: steel, sugar, paper mills, and international property holdings.
Former Bidzina Ivanishvili, Prime Minister of Georgia

 Bidzina owned a trust called Lynden Management Ltd. that was based out of the British Virgin Islands. It was established by Credit Suisse, and has come under scrutiny for the fuzzy source of its funds.
Ayad Allawi, Prime Minister of Iraq

Ayad Allawi controlled a British Virgin Island company named Moonlight Estate Limited and a Panama registered company named I.M.F holdings; both controlled real-estate in England.

 

 Ali Abu al-Ragheb, Prime Minister of Jordan

Ali Abu was the director of several British Virgin Island based investment companies; he held 3 different companies in Seychelles and had family members serving as board of directors on multiple British Virgin Island companies.
Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, Emir of Qatar
Less than a year after Hamad bin Khalifa contacted Mossack Fonseca to buy a shelf company registered in the British Virgin Islands. The company, Afrodille S.A., would hold accounts in Luxembourg banks and shares in two South African companies.

Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, Prime Minister of Qatar

 Hamad bin Jassim held investment companies in Panama and two companies, which he co-owned with the then-Qatar Emir Hamad bin Khalifa. He’ve also held several other companies in the Bahamas and British Virgin Islands – also one through which he managed a $300 million yacht.
Ahmed al-Mirghani, President of Sudan
Al-Mirghani owned Orange Star Corporations, which was a company based out of the British Virgin Islands. After being created in 1995, Orange Star Corporation made a long lease purchase of an apartment in London for more than $600,000. When al-Mirghani died, he held assets through the company worth $2.72 million dollars, according to ICIJ.
Pavlo Lazarenko, Prime Minister of Ukraine
Lazarenko was convicted in June 2000 for money laundering in Switzerland and then in the United States in 2004 and then sentenced to 9 years in prison; the sentence was then reduced to 97 months (8 years and 1 month). $250 million from his offshore accounts are still being tracked down by U.S. authorities.

Pedro Delgado, former Governor of the Central Bank
o In 2012 Austrobank Panama S.A a subsidiary bank of Grupo Eljuri and client to Mossack Fonseca processed a large mortgage loan on behalf of Pedro Delgado and his wife Maria Veronica Endara. The loan of 190,000 dollar was to purchase an estate in North Miami Beach. This happened over the course of time when Delgado served as governor of the Central Bank of Ecuador. However, the mortgage was first declined by a law firm that found the conditions of the mortgage to have too many holes in the transaction. But Mossack Fonseca immediately found another law firm that could record the mortgage in Miami.

France

UNCLE KAY CHOSE ‘KUNU’ OVER BREAST MILK. NOW, HE REGRETS IT!!!

An Adventure of Uncle Kay (Part One)

It was in Makurdi immediately after my service year. I was foodstuff seller; buying from the North and selling in Lagos and Ibadan. On one of my trips, I decided to buy from Lafia and environs because a friend who lived and worked in Makurdi advised I could get good quality grains at competitive prices in that region.

So, off to Makurdi I went. Aside from being on business, I also wanted to stay there for a few days. For a southerner Makurdi was terribly hot for me. As a result, my friend got me entertained with the local drink – Kunu. He buys every morning and put in the freezer before leaving for work. Within two days, I fell passionately in love with Kunu. The four litre keg that we bought the last two days became grossly inadequate for me.

 

By the third day, my friend decided to contract the supplier to bring whatever quantity I ask for daily. This went on for another three days. I soon became friendly with the 30-something year old woman seller.

On the fourth day of her retainership, she came to deliver Kunu as arranged. Only that on this day, she decided to deliver more than Kunu. Unlike the previous days when she would stand by the door, this day, she came into the living room as the door was not locked. I was in the shower, but rushed out (in towels) to know who the intruder was. Lo and behold, it was my supplier. Infact, she was already moving towards the direction of the bathroom where the noise was coming from!!!

To cut the long story short…(you can guess the rest of what happened)!

Okay Okay – you don’t want to guess. Okay I will tell you….

Unlike the previous days, she insisted on collecting her keg. So I implored her to wait for me to finish my bath and she agreed. I soon got dressed in shorts and t-shirt. I went into the kitchen to empty the keg of ‘kunu’ into containers. She offered to help and I obliged.

As she bent down to pour the drink, her wrapper opened and behold, she was wearing no bra! We looked at each other and there was no iota of embarrassment in her. (I was embarrassed – I was an Altar boy for most of my youth you know).

Then, I assured myself its okay to take it further. I grabbed hold of one of her boobs and put it in my mouth. I sucked like a ravenous pig. To my shock, horror and amazement, milk flowed into my mouth! I was aghast!

I had no experience of such, neither have I ever heard that its okay for an adult to suck breast. I immediately split it out.

To my embarrassment, she asked “what’s wrong?”

I replied “there is milk coming out!”

And she said “Don’t you like it”? “Have you never had it before?”

I said “NO” vehemently.

Then I asked “are you a nursing mother?”

“Yes” looking at me as if I was an embarrassment.

My mind went into a panic. I was afraid. All the passion welling up in me dissipated immediately.

You see, running around with another man’s wife wasn’t my idea of a trip to Benue. I have heard somewhere in the past that ‘Agatu’ (the general name we Yorubas call people from that region) are hard men who more than most do not play with their wives.

Noticing my jittery state, lady Kunu supplier said “What kind of a village man are you? You’re the first man I know who refused breast milk. But I thought Lagos men are exposed to such things?”

Fast forward to today in 2016, Uncle Kay is a 50-something year old man who now deeply regrets missing out on such opportunity. He now says, he would grab such opportunity with both hands if it were to be offered.

What do you think? Do you think Uncle Kay was a good man? What do you think is responsible for his change of views?
