Why Skilled Workers Will Own The Future

What's the Big Idea?
In our current atmosphere of high unemployment there are many factors that have prevented companies from growing faster and adding jobs. But one area that has not received nearly as much attention is the labor shortage when it comes to skilled workers. Recruiters simply can't fill these job vacancies. In industries such as manufacturing this problem is particularly pronounced, as the older work force that possessed the right skills is retiring, while the younger generation has shunned careers in this sector. After all, the outlook for manufacturing was quite gloomy for a long time.

While H-1B visas have allowed an influx of highly skilled immigrants in the technology sector, that is still not enough to meet labor demands. In fact, a recent survey found that 83% of manufacturers reported a moderate or severe shortage of skilled production workers to hire. The problem is also found across many other sectors of the economy, from energy to aerospace to consumer products and technology. 
"There is a huge mismatch between the jobs that are available and the workers that are out there," says Patricia Milligan, President of Human Capital at Mercer. Milligan says the workers with the right skills need to be considered "a pretty critical asset" to businesses, and the task of keeping them engaged needs to be "one of the single most important thing that leaders and managers focus on."

What's the Significance?

According to Milligan, "never before has keeping the right people and finding them been as high on the agendas of great companies as it is today." So what are successful companies doing to engage and retain these key assets? Milligan points to "world-class companies" who are working with academic institutions to more rigorously evaluate curriculums. Many of the "skills" that are currently being taught are what could be called "transitory" because the jobs themselves are being transformed or replaced by automated technological processes. More dynamic curriculums are needed to keep up with the pace of change if we hope to train the work force for the jobs that will exist in the future. 

When you look at the global picture, the demographics, the birth rates and replacement ratios in the workforce, Milligan sees a "skilled workers’ world," and they will have the power. "There’s no question that the workers with the right skills around the world are going to own their own futures," she says, "and we want to compete for those workers."


According to the latest reports, the most used instant messaging application, WhatsApp will now tell you which messages were forwarded to you. They are accompanied by a “Forwarded” label that appears to both senders and recipients. The feature has been in testing since June and has been released for all users.

WhatsApp Starts Labelling Forwarded Messages In Effort To Fight Fake News

The most used instant messaging application, of course, WhatsApp will now tell you which messages were forwarded to you. They are accompanied by a “Forwarded” label that appears to both senders and recipients. The feature has been in testing since June and has been released for all users.

For WhatsApp, this helps determine whether a friend or relative actually wrote the message they sent, or whether it came from someone else. However, the app does not tell who the original author is, unlike the Telegram – who already had this feature.

And of course, if you want to forward a message without the “Forwarded” prompt, simply copy it manually, paste it and send it to the recipient.

Fight Fake News

The company also says: “We encourage you to think carefully before sharing forwarded messages.” The idea, it seems, is to help combat false information, which spreads very easily – sometimes with fatal consequences.

This month, five people were lynched to death in a city in India. Rumors scattered about WhatsApp said they were kidnappers. Other similar cases have been occurring in the country.

A new program called WhatsApp Research Awards will give up to $50,000 for researchers. The idea is to find ways to detect fake news by protecting end-to-end encryption in the application.

Ways To Improve Your Study Habits And Recall Better

If you're a student attending classes, you have undoubtedly experienced many moments when it was hard to make yourself settle down and study, even when an important exam was coming up.

If you're like most students, you delay studying until the very last minute. The night before the exam, you'll burn the midnight oil cramming, getting little or no sleep. In the morning, you'll drag yourself out of bed, gear up yourself with lots of coffee and some cigarettes, and go into the exam feeling tired, drained and stressed out all at the same time. You'll find it hard to focus or think, and you'll be cursing yourself for not starting to study sooner.

And not surprisingly, unless you're blessed with natural intelligence, or you happen to know the subject matter very well, you'll probably do awfully on the test.

If this is your usual method of studying, you already know it doesn't work. Every time you go through this ritual, you tell yourself that you're going to improve the next time you face a big exam. Next time you'll start to study weeks in advance, you say. But instead, you keep repeating this crazy pattern. Why does this keep occurring? And what should you be doing instead if you want to get better marks?

A big problem for most people, especially those who are young students, is that life gets in the way. If you're a student, you probably have a part time job, and like most juvenile people, you also want to have a social life.

Studying can seem very dull compared to all the exciting temptations just outside your door. Or the games on your computer. Even watching old reruns of Sesame Street can seem more interesting than the biology text your teacher is expecting you to master!

One reason we often don't start studying until the last possible minute is that we have miscalculated how long it will actually take us to grasp and understand the material. If your mid-term is still six weeks away, that might seem like plenty of time left before you need to get around to studying. You might find however, that the subject matter is a lot harder to understand than you thought it would be, and all of a sudden there's no time left to ask someone to explain it to you.

Another reason we often delay starting to study is that we are too overwhelmed with how big the project actually seems to be. Somehow we assure ourselves that putting off a tough study project can be the best way to avoid feeling overwhelmed by it.

When we are faced with a study project that seems extremely difficult and overwhelming, it can be to maintain a high level of interest and motivation for the duration of the learning process.

If you have been guilty of all these bad study habits, it's not too late to pick up some other habits that will work better for you.

First, remind yourself why you want to perform better in your studies. Maybe you need a good mark to get into a good college. Maybe you want a chance at a career that will pay you well. Always keep your end goal in mind.

You can put little cards up around your room with inspirational messages, and attractive photographs that will remind you why you want to do well in school.

If you feel very overwhelmed, you can improve your motivation and your performance by breaking up the project into smaller sections, or "chunks". Each time you accomplish one little bit successfully, give yourself a significant reward.

If you have a deadline looming, decide how much of the project you need to tackle at one time.

Let's say you have six weeks to master the content of a difficult biology text. Looking through the book you realize that if you study one chapter each night, you can get through the book in 28 days, leaving two weeks in which you can again review the material.

With this erudition you can pace yourself. You know what your assignment is. You know how much you need to read every night. Concentrate on the immediate task at hand. You don't need to feel overwhelmed by the entire book at one time. Next, work out a system of rewards for yourself. Give yourself a series of small rewards each time you master one chapter, and a larger reward for completing the entire book.

For rewards to work they must be immediate, and personally meaningful to you. There is no point in rewarding yourself with a new fishing rod if you hate fishing.

Rewards don't need to be material objects if there is something else that would really motivate and inspire you. How about attending a special concert, or taking a special trip? You decide. Get creative and think of something that will incite you to take action.

It's very important that the reward take place soon after the work has been accomplished. This creates a sense of positive reinforcement. Give yourself a small reward every time you finish a small part of the job, and a bigger reward when the project is completed. If there is too long a gap between the activity and the reward, it will not have the effect of strengthening the desired activity.

Besides motivating yourself with a series of external rewards, learn to motivate yourself internally. Tell yourself you're a good learner. Tell yourself you enjoy learning. Tell yourself you enjoy giving your brain a good work out. Congratulate yourself for your efforts. Tell yourself you love gaining new knowledge, and let yourself feel a joy in learning. Be proud of yourself for the work you do to gain more knowledge.

For information to sink into your brain and be accessible to you, you need to review it several times, and your brain needs to sleep properly for the memories to be encoded in your neurons. You need to reduce your mental stress. Your brain requires good nutrition and it needs to be in a peaceful, confident state. Drugs and alcohol don't help the process of learning.

Write out what you are learning in your own words, and find a learning partner. Practice explaining to someone else what you have learned. This will increase the possibility that your brain will remember it.

If you start to cram the night before, you are putting your brain at a big drawback.

You're increasing your physical and mental stress, and you're not giving yourself time to review the material several times. By cutting back on your sleep, you're not giving your brain a chance to put the information you've been studying into the hard drive storage of your brain.

By starting your studies early, and reviewing what you've learned, you have a much better chance of remembering and understanding what you need to know when you face a big exam.

Donald Duke Releases 2019 Campaign Posters For Presidential Election

Former governor of Cross River State, Mr. Donald Duke, has said Nigeria has continued to lag behind in growth and development due to lack of sincerity of purpose and determination to confront emerging challenges.

According to Duke, his decision to contest the 2019 presidency is informed by the need to lead the path in the restoration and survival of the country, stressing that Nigeria would do better with the right vision.

Duke made the remarks, yesterday, in Enugu, as a guest to the Law Students’ Association (LAWSA) 2018 dinner of the Faculty of Law, University of Nigeria, Enugu campus. He said: “We all agree that we can do better than we are doing currently. The ideas are not lacking. What is lacking is the sincerity of purpose and the determination to get it right. The three things I believe we require are the vision, the will and the attitude.

“The essential element is the will. Agriculture cannot go beyond processing level if you don’t have good policies tied to it; if you don’t have the requisite infrastructure tied to it. For our education, from 1990, we have not updated our curriculum to match the realities of the world. Our healthcare methods are still the way they were in the 60s.

“Our infrastructure is deplorable. Our financing system is wrong. We cannot grow an economy, where in my estimation seven out of 10 persons are unemployed, underemployed, with interest rate regime in the upper twenties.”He lamented that while a lot of young folks would like to start businesses, the system will not allow them do that, stressing, “We need a leadership that is determined to solve these problems.”

He tasked the students: “The country is getting more and more competitive and if you don’t put your best foot forward, you will miss it. Nobody will step aside and say young people should take over. You must work for it. It will be more competitive in the next 30 years.”

The Meeting started at about 10am and recorded a huge attendance from all members including the recently inducted year 1 students.

During the meeting everyone had hoped to see Comr. Akuma fortune walking into the meeting, being the Senate president of NAESS And one out of the three Ebonyians aspiring for the post of SUG president. but fortune was no where to be found. Meanwhile Ceaser was late to the meeting and being the Provost and also a presidential aspirant, this raised so much dust as he was cautioned by one of the members to desist from coming late to meetings and then coming to ask people to move to the front row, this was as a result of the supposed relevance the campaigner was seeking.

Meanwhile LEO who is the third aspirant for president also from EBONYI was pictured sitting very calm as usual. Such a perfect gentleman, little wonder he's the Ag. SUG president favorite. one would wonder if he has the ability to even struggle, but remember a book is not judged by it's cover.

Another person that cought people's attention was the Queen herself. Queen Gloria Ukpai the Vice Presidential aspirant. The highpoint was when the NAESS President urged all Ebonyians to vote Gloria Ukpai for Vice President.

The meeting ended by the president assuring every member of the University community of a free, fair and violence free Elections saying #ElectionNoBeFight a hashtag created by Aguero Banks and fostered by Baron crew.

The electoral committee through it's chairman Dr. Charles Nkem Okolie (Dean of Student Affairs) just released some vital information for the SUG contestants and the entire students.

This development came up because of the misguided information going on in various websites and platforms in order to win the vote of the students.

Therefore, the committee came up with some don'ts in the upcoming AE-FUNAI SUG election which includes:

1. There should be no form of gratification       or inducement with gifts. 

2. Colored posters or it's kind is banned or       not accepted in the forth coming                   election. 

3. Motor convoy is not allowed within and      outside the campus while campaign. 

4. No external body is accepted to parade      within the campus.

5. No form of character assassination by        co-contestants.

Anyone found going contrary to the above stated instruction stands the risk of being disqualified, therefore contestants and the entire students are advised to obey the instructions.

How ever this may be a pill too bitter for the BG time ballers who have been warming up to start showering some students with gifts in exchange for Votes. One can now say the Electoral committee has succeeded in creating a level ground for all contestants, feel free to leave your comments below.

Lagos City Suya Carnival by Suya Stops In Conjunction with Lagos State Government and Ministry of Arts...

The Lagos City Suya Carnival.
The idea was borne out of the need to celebrate Africa, Nigeria and most especially our Lagos using one of the chops that has become a household name across metropolis over several years.
Suya, as we all know, didn’t originate from Lagos but you will all agree with me that the average Lagos street or road has one Suya joint or a nearby Suya Mallam joint just few streets away. Such is the love we have shown this delicacy that has seemingly become part and parcel of Lagos.
A Suya carnival, you might wonder? Well, this is one carnival that isn’t been replicated from anywhere in the world as it has its own origin here in Lagos, Nigeria. Which better way could we have launched such a carnival with such magnitude? Where could we have launched this and when could we have launched the Lagos City Carnival are the questions that ravaged our mind when this idea came to me.
For us, after so many deliberations we concluded that no where other than Lagos is perfect for us to berth with this carnival. And which better way to launch it than the commemoration of the Lagos at 50 celebration with the event rounding it off. Making a 50ft long Suya steak and breaking a record hence putting Lagos state as a whole on the world map isn’t a bad way to launch the event of this magnitude.
