Safety Tips on how to Commute In a Lagos rain.

images

The rainy season is upon us again, and despite our love and gratitude for it, we still face some constant challenges in it, and as Lagosians, it is considered worse than most, since it is a riverine state with water logged streets on it’s Island. Let’s take a litthe but significant look into the safety tips for rainy season.

  • IF YOU DON’T FEEL COMFORTABLE enough to drive in the rain, then wuthout shame or push, freely postpone the trip to someother time.
  • Keep a greater distance between your car and vehicle in front of you to help yourself divert or halt when need be.
  • Adhere to the posted speed limit when driving in the rain.
  • While you ride your bike/bicycle under the rain, try to make yourself and the bicycle reflective with bright coloured clothing and lights to tell other road users that you are present.
  • Do not drive through an extreme flood, it may pull the car away.
  • Avoid driving on the last two lanes of the road while it’s raining, because you just might underestiamate the proximity due to water level, especially if you are not conversant with  the road before the rain.
  • Do not drink and drive, and if you require a pair of glasses to drive,use them.
  • Don’t bike on busy streets going against the direction of traffic.
  • While driving in do not compete with yellow buses and keke, no matter how tempting it may be.
  • Be kind to pedestrians, but be careful who you let in.
  • Wath out for standing water. Drinking through standing water can cause your car to hydroplane or skid across the road.
  • Wind down, or pill over in a safe place when increase in humidity has caused the window to become foggy.
  • Do not be in a haste to get to your destination. So leave your home early enough.
  • Ensure you strap on the kids at the back seat and not the front seat of the car for their safety, and to avoid distractions.
  • Going in social media or texting whole driving is a big No.. No..
  • Get the airconditioner, lights and windshield wipers of your car in a working condition before driving in  the rain.
  • Ensure you advertising enough fuel in the tank of your car, before you set out in the rain.
  • Listen to traffic radio or Google map for warnings of roads to avoid.

Male Celebrities Stormed My DM When I Broke Up with Offset – Cardi B

US rapper #CardiB has revealed how different male celebrities flooded her DM when she announced that she was no longer with her husband and the Father of her child, Offset.

Cardi B also revealed that now that she is back together with Offset, a lot of people are bothered as to why she would return to such a man.

She shared: “A lot of people always telling me, like, ‘You could date, you could find another man, blah blah blah, And it’s like, I can. I can find anybody I want.

You don’t know nowadays who wants you for you.

Sometimes, I’m feeling, people want me for Cardi B.”

“Soon as I said I did a video that I’m not with this guy anymore I got all these male celebs in my DMs, like, ‘Yeah, let’s go to dinner. I’m in LA.

You wanna go to dinner with me? Cardi B?”
“I just feel like, it’s not as easy as people think.”

Cardi B concluded by stating that she and her man are currently taking things slowly.

“I think we’re going to be alright. You know, you gotta take it slow,” she said. “When I was 13, my parents separated, right? So I always feel like it’s important to have like, a two-parents household.”

NASRDA reveals total lunar eclipse will happen on Monday

Bloodmoon2-e1547822083709

The National Space Research and Development Agency on Friday says Nigeria will join other countries of the world to experience a total lunar eclipse on Monday.

The information was in a statement issued by Dr Felix Alle, the Head, Media and Public Communications of the agency in Abuja.

According to Alle, a lunar eclipse is a celestial incident where the moon appears darkened as it passes into the earth’s shadow.

He stated that “lunar eclipse occurs only when the sun, earth and moon are exactly aligned with the earth between the two.

“There will be a lunar eclipse over Nigeria on Monday, Jan. 21, 2019.

“The eclipse, expected to be total, will begin in the evening of Sunday and end on Monday.

“The eclipse will start across Nigeria in the early hours of Monday at approximately 3:36 am to reach its maximum

at 6:12am and end at about 6:43am.

“The total duration of the occurrence over Nigeria will be three hours and 15 minutes.”

The media head said that the lunar eclipse would by 4.33am become a partial eclipse, where the moon would start getting red.

He added that “at exactly 5.41am, a maximum eclipse of the moon which may be visible to human sight will be

witnessed, while the moon eclipse is expected to end at 6.43am”

The communications officer stated that the eclipse is expected to take place across North, South America, Western

Europe, North and West Africa and Asia.

He said that the year’s total lunar eclipse would be the last eclipse to be experienced until 2021.

MY OPINION 

That creeps me out every single time. Eclipse seem to have a biblical and spiritual meaning to it and that leads to a whole other world in my head.

blackfilm_com-1547893854807

The black community seems to have yet again been placed into a joyous mood as they been remembered this time yet again by the Hollywoodwalkoffame.

This came after a hand full of her entertainers gain more fame, acknowledgement and recognition in the form of a star on the Hollywood walk of fame,for the entertainer who has been significant in the industry.

Something that was initially considered to be a white event,  that gave the impression that the blacks were prohibited from participating ,more so,  they were even never remembered for for it.

While the tables seem to have been turned in the last five years,  the black community entertainers seem to have been remembered  for their proud long working membership of the USA entertainment  community, recognised and given the well deserved accolade. Now that it is Taraji P Henson’s turn, we are indeed elated to hear this news, especially for the Fact that she gives the rest of the females trying to make it in the industry so much hopes for their  ability to do anything they put their mind to, no matter what anyone says. Congratulations to her. This is to happen on 28th Janunary 2019.

Man poses with baby shark for a selfie, and gets more than he bargained for.

no thumb

from @oceanskeepers 😡🤬 Karma is a dish best served… with VERY sharp teeth!

Although this juvenile Black Tip was eventually released back into the ocean, people need to learn about the deadly effects of taking sharks out of the water.

Because sharks don’t have bones, their skeleton structure is made from cartilage, and when a shark is removed from the buoyancy of water (i.e. taken out of the water and brought onto land), the cartilage isn’t strong enough to stop the weight of the shark’s body collapsing onto its organs and crushing them.

So with each second that passes by while you’re taking photos and having a laugh, the shark you’ve just caught is being crushed to death by gravity. And although it may swim off after being released, the effects of that 5 minutes out of the water could slowly kill it over the next day or two.

Sharks aren’t trophies and they shouldn’t be used for photo opportunities but if you are going to fish for them, please keep them in the shallows and PLEASE speed up their release 😓

Michigan man discovers glowing, florescent rocks called “Yooperlites”

Screenshot_2019-01-13-00-54-46

from @underwaterhub – Michigan man discovers glowing, florescent rocks called “Yooperlites” 😍
Erik Rintamaki discovered a rock that glows under an ultraviolet light made of a mineral never seen before in Michigan. Without knowing what they were or why the rocks glowed, he named them “Yooperlites”. Rintamaki says it all started in 2017 when he went out on a beach in Lake Superior with a UV light and discovered tons of these glowing rocks.
To the naked eye, they look like gray rocks, but under the UV light, the mineral composite makes the rocks glow

How much do you know about a Hermit Crab?

no thumb

@oceanshot – This is so cool ! 😍
Hermit crabs are crustaceans. They have jointed limbs, claws, a hard exoskeleton, eyes on stalks, and two sets of antennae.
#AnimalFact : Crabs interact with each other and are often found in large groups. Marine hermit crabs live in the ocean and land hermit crabs live primarily on land 🦀
The hermit crab is not like other crabs. The hermit crab’s abdomen does not have a hard covering. To protect the abdomen, a hermit crab inhabits an empty snail shell.
The shell also stores water for the crab. Hermit crabs have gills that need to remain moist in order for them to breath

Caucasian Nature Girl Sara Underwood Acknowledges the injustice done to blacks who were enslaved.

Obyoriji.com

from @saraunderwood – On my recent trip to the Bahamas it was impossible to not feel humbled by the beauty of the islands. It was equally impossible to not feel humbled by the history of the islands that have some of their roots in slavery. Don’t mistake my feeling humbled for “white guilt”. It is not guilt, it is fact, that white people, maybe even my ancestors, captured people from Africa, forced them into bondage and brought them to this very spot. It is not guilt, it is fact, that police brutality and systemic racism towards people with black and brown skin is a serious problem in the United States to this day. It is not guilt, it is fact, that I as a white person have benefited from this systemic racism even though I am not a willing participant in it. If you are white and you acknowledge these realities, don’t let people dismiss it as white guilt. Speak the truth and ally yourself with causes that fight for the justice we all deserve. This piece, “Genesis” by Antonius Roberts and Tyrone Ferguson is a profound monument to the past, present, and future. Happy New Year.

A newly discovered blind and burrowing amphibian named after President Trump

guardian_us-1545492664912

@guardian_us – No, really. A newly discovered blind and burrowing amphibian is to be officially named Dermophis donaldtrumpi, in recognition of the president’s climate change denial. The name was chosen by the boss of EnviroBuild, a sustainable building materials company, who paid $25,000 at an auction for the right. Aidan Bell said the small legless creature’s ability to bury its head in the ground matched Trump’s approach to global warming.
