~1.0 mins read
The Adamawa State Police Command has nabbed a man for allegedly stoning his two children to death.
The command said its operatives apprehended 25-year-old Elisha Tari on Friday, August 18, after he allegedly murdered two of his children aged between three and five years in the Himikidu community of Michika Local Government Area where they lived.
The Command, in a statement signed and sent to newsmen Saturday afternoon by police spokesman Suleiman Nguroje, said Tari killed the children with stones and sticks “which he had used in hitting them on their heads severally.”
The incident was reported at the Divisional Police Headquarters, Michika, by the grandfather of the victims, the police said.
According to the statement, “Preliminary investigation reveals that the victims’ mother got separated from the suspect two months ago after they had a misunderstanding.”
The police explained that the suspect was arrested while he was trying to escape to the Cameroon Republic, and is currently in Police custody undergoing interrogation.
The police said part of the investigations is for operatives to ascertain why the man would use stones and sticks to kill his own children.
“The Commissioner of Police, CP Sikiru Akande, who expressed his sadness over the in-human act, directed the Deputy Commissioner of Police CID to take over investigation and ensure prosecution of the suspect to serve as deterrant to others,” the statement added.
Kindness Don't Go Unrewarded

At 10 PM on June 15, 2022. 17-year-old Anthony Zhongor was sitting in his car, parked on a dock on Long Island when he saw a car drive off the dock, straight into the bay. Mr. Zhongor ran to the edge of the dock and saw the car sinking. Its occupant was trapped inside, banging on the door. “She went pretty deep in there,” Zhongor said. “She was banging on the door, banging on the window, trying to break the window, of course, and that kind of got me nervous, scared for her, so I just took my clothes off and went into the water.”
Zhongor dove in after the car, but couldn't get the door open from the outside. Thinking fast, he used his weight to push down the front of the car so that the tailgate would be above water. He opened the tailgate, allowing the driver, 18-year-old Mia Samolinski, to escape. They both swam to shore, and Samolinski tearfully thanked him for saving her life. “She just came up to me and said, ‘Oh my God, thank you’ and was crying,” Zhongor said. “It doesn’t matter who it was, they were suffering. I couldn’t watch anybody suffer in front of me.”
Samolinski had accidentally hit the gas instead of the brakes.
She and Zhongor are high school classmates, although they had never met in school. He graduated in June, and had just enlisted in the Marines. "Zhongor’s selflessness and decisiveness makes him a shining example of the caliber of person we seek out to earn the title Marine," said his recruiter.

We define corruption as the abuse of entrusted power for private gain. Corruption erodes trust, weakens democracy, hampers economic development and further exacerbates inequality, poverty, social division and the environmental crisis.The most common types or categories of corruption are supply versus demand corruption, grand versus petty corruption, conventional versus unconventional corruption and public versus private corruption.Corruption is a complex social, political and economic phenomenon that affects all countries. Corruption undermines democratic institutions, slows economic .In a nutshell, corruption increases inequality, decreases popular accountability and political responsiveness, and thus produces rising frustration and hardship among citizens, who are then more likely to accept (or even demand) hard-handed and illiberal tactics.
HOW TO OUTSHINE AS A STUDENT IN CLASS
~3.2 mins read
To outshine as a student in the glorious four walls of a citadel of learning, there are certain principles you must follow.
This could not get any simpler. If you do not understand something, ask the teacher for help—that's why they are there. Don't ever be afraid or embarrassed to ask a question, this is how you learn. Chances are, several other students have the same question.
Teachers love to work with students who are pleasant and positive. Having a positive attitude will directly impact your learning. Though there will always be bad days and subjects you don't enjoy, it is important to let positivity permeate everything you do. This will make school more enjoyable for you and you will find success easier to achieve.
Following directions and instructions is an essential aspect of being a good student—not doing so leads to mistakes and poor grades. Always listen carefully and take thorough notes when a teacher is giving instructions and explaining something, especially new material. Read written directions at least two times and ask for clarification if you still don't get it.
Every assignment should be completed to the best of your ability and turned in to the teacher on time. There are two negative outcomes when work is not completed: you miss out on important learning opportunities and your overall grade is lowered. To avoid learning gaps and poor scores, do your assignments no matter what. It may not be fun, but it is an essential part of school and learning that excellent students do not skip.
The best students go above and beyond, often doing more than the minimum. If the teacher assigns 20 problems, they do 25. They seek out learning opportunities and are excited to learn. Try doing extra research about ideas that intrigue you, finding your own ways to practice, and asking the teacher for extra credit opportunities to become a better student.
A structured routine after school can help you maintain academic focus at home. Your routine should include a designated time and place for homework and studying that you can count on each day. The goal is to minimize distractions and make a commitment to prioritize completing assignments over other activities. A routine for getting ready for school each morning can also be beneficial.
You should always set academic goals for yourself that apply to both short- and long-term learning. Whether one of your goals is to attend college someday or you just want to get a good grade on an upcoming test, it is important to self-direct your accomplishments. Goals will help you to maintain focus throughout your education so that you always remember what you are working toward.
Good students know how to stay focused in the face of distractions. They know that they are responsible for their own learning and do not let other people or situations stand in the way of that. They make academics a priority and keep their sights set on their long-term educational goals.
Your level of organization directly influences your level of success in school. Try keeping your locker and backpack neat and tidy as well as recording all assignments and important deadlines in a planner or notebook. You will find that school becomes easier to manage when you can find and keep track of things.
Good students are often bookworms. Reading is the foundation of learning, after all. Strong readers are always looking for opportunities to increase their fluency and comprehension by picking books that are entertaining and challenging. Set goals for yourself and check your understanding as you read to instantly improve your reading skills.
TAKE CHALLENGING CLASSES
Learn to feel comfortable being challenged. A healthy amount of challenge grows your brain and it is better to experience difficulty than to coast through school. Push yourself to achieve goals that are harder for you to reach for larger pay-offs in the long-run than easy courses will grant you. If you are able, select tough classes that will really make you think (within reason).
GET A TUTOR
If you find that there is an area in which you struggle excessively, getting a tutor might be the answer. Tutoring can give you the one-on-one help that you need to make sense of difficult courses and concepts. Ask your teacher for tutor recommendations and remember that there is nothing wrong with needing extra help.
FG To Ban Ponmo, Says It Has No Nutrition To Nigerians
~0.7 mins read
The Nigerian federal government says it is planning to enforce a law against consumption of animal skin, locally known as ponmo, in the country in order to revive tanneries.
The director-general of the Nigerian Institute of Leather and Science Technology (NILEST), Zaria, Muhammad Yakubu made the statement in Abuja on Sunday.
He said that the new litigation by the FG was necessary, because it would revive the comatose leather industry in the country.
Yakubu expressed that the habit of eating animal skin, which has no nutritional value to the body, should be stopped to save the leather industry in order to boost the country's economy.
He also added that the institute, in collaboration with stakeholders in the animals skin industries, would approach the state governors and national assembly to bring out legislation banning “ponmo” consumption in Nigeria.

Do you still feel you don't have reason to thank God? Think again!
Do you know that during dialysis, blood is removed from the body through the red tube, passed through the dialysis machine, and then reintroduced into the body through the blue tube.
This process is repeated for four hours while the patient remains immobile in bed.
The procedure is carried out three times a week, which results in twelve times a month, and each time it takes four hours, which results in a total of forty-eight hours a month.
For those not affected, this process of flushing your kidneys occurs automatically 36 times every day with zero effort or discomfort.
Always be grateful to God for what you have. ❤️
