WI-FI THE SILENT KILLER

wi fi 8451 2                                                    Is the wi-fi we use in our homes and everywhere we go actually safe for our health? Everyone seems addicted to the internet, and it has been made more and more available to us.

Even though it was safe to say that companies who manufacture the devices that transmit and receive the wifi signals are safe to use, the health professionals are not so sure about this fact. Let us take a glimpse in details how the wifi impacts our overall health.

There are some consequences of being around the wi-fi all of the time, and the side effects are: sleep issues, pain in the ears, chronic fatigue, lack of concentration, and frequent and strong headaches.

Well, giving the fact that the newest technology has made our lives much simpler, you cannot just say to someone to give up on it, the response will be definitely no.

But, what you can do is reduce the emission of WLAN around you by following some easy and simple steps. Please do consider them, in order to preserve your health.

First, you should not place your router in your bedroom or kitchen, because it can do much more harm from there. Second, protect your children from the electromagnetic waves by turning off the wi-fi when you are not using it.

Third, this may be a little more difficult, but try using phones with cables when you are at home, to relieve yourself from all the electromagnetic waves. And finally, disconnect all your wi-fi programs before you go to bed.

Follow these simple tips and avoid the harmful exposure of the wi-fi to your health.

Revered playwright and Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, says he will hold a private funeral on January 20 when United States President-elect, Donald Trump, is inaugurated as President.

Soyinka, who spoke in Lagos on Monday, explained that the funeral is not to mourn with the citizens of the US over their choice of president but to mourn the death of Nigeria’s common sense.

“Our common sense is totally lost. I am embarrassed sometimes that I occupy the same nation space with some people,” he said.

 

He also said Nigerians did not have the right to query his personal decision to tear his US green card.

Details later…

1.2 Million Nigerians To Get Soft Loan

At least 1.2 million Nigerians will be given soft loans which attract between two and three per cent interest rate as part of efforts to create jobs under government’s social investment programme. Mr Laolu Akande, the Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, in Abuja on Sunday said that government was synergizing with its enterprise agencies and the private sector to achieve the goal. He named the agencies as the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN), Bank of Industry (BOI), Bank of Agriculture, the National Directorate of Employment(NDE), among others. “About 1.2 million Nigerians are going to be given soft loans, may be at two or three per cent, loans of N20,000 to N50,000, N100,000, the traders, for people that have small businesses. “We are going to be using co-operatives, so all these groups mentioned will be working together because we believe small and medium enterprises are very critical to the recovery and rejuvenation of the economy. “So, we are working to design all kind of intervention financial facilities since we are not getting the kind of affordable loans in the main banking sector. He said that government was using the intervention funds to release money to small and medium scale enterprises so that they can trade with the money at very little interest rate. He said that the Federal Government was hoping to do more for Nigerians using the intervention fund as part of its social investment programme. He said that the SMEDAN, BOI, Bank of Agriculture, NDE, others had been harnessed to provide such support. Akande said that government would continue to use resources from the agencies to actively boost social investment programmes. “We are working with these agencies to have that kind of glory of affordable loan to 1.2 million Nigerians to do trading of different kinds,’’ he added.

Nigerian Nobel prize-winning author, Wole Soyinka claimed on Thursday that he has already destroyed his US residency green card.

Soyinka said he would throw away his green card and depart the country if the Republican Presidential aspirant to the last month’s election, Donald Trump wins.

Afterwards, he had vowed to destroy the green card on Trump’s swearing in day, to protest against the Republican billionaire’s campaign speeches.

But he has now told Journalists in South Africa that, “I have already done it, I have disengaged (from the United States). I have done what I said I would do.

“I had a horror of what is to come with Trump… I threw away the (green) card, and I have relocated, and I’m back to where I have always been.”

The Arsenal attacker got his name in the Guinness Book of Records after beating the previous best altitude by two metres

 

Arsenal's Theo Walcott has set a world record for controlling a ball dropped from a high altitude.

Wenger blasts 'weak' Arsenal

The England international took part in a challenge during training, competing against team-mates Laurent Koscielny, Francis Coquelin and Nacho Monreal.

The quartet were challenged to stop a ball being dropped from a crane, with Walcott showing his skills by controlling it superbly after it was dropped from 34 metres.

Walcott beat the previous record by two metres in front of a certified Guinness judge, ensuring his place in the Guinness Book of Records.

Walcott takes the record from English football freestyler who John Farnworth set the record at 32 metres, after Lionel Messi had initially recorded a height of 18 metres in a promotion for a Japanese television show.

However, Farnworth can take solace in the fact that his name is still in the record books, having completed 83 around the world keepie-uppies in a minute.
