Solar Eclipse: Nigerians anticipate and the Director General of National Space and Research Agency, Dr. Seidu Mohammed warns

How are you Preparing for Sunday's solar eclipse? 

As people all over the world prepare with great excitement for the solar eclipse,which will occur this Sunday,November 3, 2013,it is necessary to alert our people to the significance of the cosmic event and prepare them on how to safely observe it.
This very event is a solar eclipse, otherwise known as eclipse of the sun,which occurs when the moon passes between the sun and the earth thus casting the moon's shadow either partially or wholly on the surface of the sun. It is essentially a natural phenomenon already demystified by science, even though religious and traditional believers often attribute supernatural significance to it. 

The Director General of National Space and Research Agency, Dr. Seidu Mohammed, wants Nigerians to bear in mind that the eclipse is a normal natural event that should not bring about undue panic.
The excitement generated by eclipses all over the world is centered on the fact that because they are unique and sometimes occur a few times in a person's lifetime,people naturally,want to view this interplay of heavenly bodies. That is where the main danger is and where everybody must play safe. 

According to an article on entitled: "How to Safely Observe Sunday's Solar Eclipse": " We are reminded to play safe. A fraction of a second of magnified, unfiltered sunlight will sear your eye's retina irreparably. Imagine a horrible sunburn on your eyeball. Your eye cannot grow new layers and (peel off)the (burnt) ones like your skin tissue can, so staring directly at the sun is dangerous without the protection of safety equipment used by veteran sky watchers and astronomers." 

We are appealing to government to deploy their media and orientation outfits to mount a massive civic education of the populace because it will do us no good if after the eclipse we have a new batch of avoidably blind citizens.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
