Opera to offer free Wi-Fi via WOW car in India

The WOW car will hit the road in phases, first covering the northern belt of India. After Agra, the WOW car will travel around Lucknow. Its next stops are Kanpur, Varanasi and Allahabad.

NEW DELHI: Opera Software has launched Web on Wheels (WOW), featuring a specially-equipped WOW car that provides free Wi-Fi access to those in range.

Over the next 10 months, the WOW car will travel across India, covering 20 cities. Agra, the city of Taj Mahal was its first stop. The car was stationed at multiple locations, such as Raja Mundi, Paliwal Park, Sadar Bazar, St. John's College, among other notable locations throughout the city.

The WOW car will hit the road in phases, first covering the northern belt of India. After Agra, the WOW car will travel around Lucknow. Its next stops are Kanpur, Varanasi and Allahabad.

Opera hopes to encourage new users to get online and experience the internet from their mobile phones, the company said in a statement.

The WOW car will offer 20 minutes of free internet access to users. There is no limit to the amount of data that can be used during this time or the websites and apps that can be used with this free internet service.

"Today, almost everyone has a mobile handset that is capable of accessing the internet. However, many users are reluctant to use the mobile internet due to a lack of awareness or the perceived high cost", says Sunil Kamath, Vice President for South Asia & South East Asia at Opera Software. "We hope Web on Wheels can help in lowering the barriers for new users to come online."

"At Opera, we strive to bring the web to everyone. This year marks our 20th anniversary. With Web on Wheels, we want to give something back to our users and hope to help more people see how fun and educational it is to be on the web," adds Kamath.

More than 55 million users in India already use Opera web browsers. Opera Mini is a fast web browser that shrinks webpages by up to 90% of their size, helping users save on mobile data. Opera is also taking the Web on Wheels initiative as an opportunity to engage with its millions of users from India's Tier II and Tier III cities.

TEXTUAL ANALYSIS OF HABILA’S MEASURING TIME

This chapter concentrates on the textual analysis of Helon Habila’s Measuring Time. It aims at projecting the forms of lexico- syntactic creativity employed by the author. Basically, it reveals how the author has foregrounded grammar, syntax and oral African forms to create beauty.

How The Digital Economy Can Help End Extreme Poverty

When I was in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia recently as part of the U.S. government’s delegation to the Third International Conference on Financing for Development, I was struck by how much the international development landscape is changing.

Where governments were once the primary source of development assistance, today the private sector, civil society, academia and donors are all working together to discover, fund and scale innovative solutions to longtime development challenges.


Some of these solutions have already resulted in transformative innovations that have improved development outcomes.

As we at USAID (United States Agency for International Development) work together with our partners to meet the ambitious goal of eliminating extreme poverty for roughly 1.2 billion people, increased funding will not get us there alone (The World Bank defines extreme poverty as living on less than US$1.25 per day; check out this report for more information). We need to find new ways to achieve greater impact at lower cost.

In the past two decades alone, advances in mobile technology and digital connectivity have completely revolutionized how we interact with the world around us. They also provide unparalleled opportunities to deliver social impact and economic returns to millions of people in developing countries, while engaging new actors in the development process.

How can digital tools and advances help developing countries break through to the next level of economic gains? According to Booz Allen Hamilton, the “digitization” of developing economies could yield as much as a $4.1 trillion increase in GDP among the most underserved 3.9 billion consumers.

We’re already seeing promising signs of this digitization in Africa. The convergence of social, political and economic factors, including a high demand for basic unmet public services, the spread of smartphones and broadband access and the global growth of the digital economy, is making Africa a center for development innovation.

With new business models, African countries are leapfrogging older technologies to create digitally enabled solutions for local populations.

Other parts of the developing world are also seeing positive results. As part of the WorldFish Center’s Aquaculture for Income and Nutrition (AIN) project in Bangladesh, Mostafa Kamal works to improve technical competence by providing training and small stipends to local farmers.

By introducing mobile payments for the training allowances through USAID’s Mobile Solutions Technical Assistance and Research (mSTAR) program, training allowances are now directly transferred to mobile wallets; it now takes 15 fewer days to transfer funds to Kamal and other trainers. In addition, mobile money has mitigated the risks associated with traveling with large sums of cash.

To help more people like Kamal benefit from the digital economy, we believe all development actors involved need to embrace a holistic approach to “digital development.”

The following are a few of my recommendations, published for the 2015 Brookings Blum Roundtable Foreign Assistance in the Digital Age:

    Catalyze Increased Connectivity: For individuals, communities and countries to thrive in the 21st century, mobile and Internet connectivity needs to be seen as a core infrastructure alongside water, roads and electricity. Connectivity can open new economic opportunities for individuals and increase access to information, yet today only 44.6 percent of the population in developing countries are mobile subscribers, only one-third have access to the Internet and women are 23 percent less likely than men to have access to the Internet.

    Enable a Digital Workforce: Building the skills and ecosystem to participate in the fast-growing digital economy is likely one of the most powerful drivers for future employment and economic prosperity. When governments and the private sector work together, they can train the workforce for this new era and help match them with job opportunities.

    Expand the Reach and Usage of Digital Financial Services: Globally, around two billion adults (disproportionately women) lack access to formal financial services, and instead rely on cash or physical assets. Digital financial services, like mobile money, can help individuals more effectively manage finances and build resilience against economic shocks.

Enhanced access to digital information and services can empower individuals and open new windows for delivering more effective and scalable development projects. Through USAID’s U.S. Global Development Lab, we’re working to help facilitate access and promote business models and technology innovation to reach communities in need.

Challenges of Community-Based Organizations in Rural Development in Nigeria

Malthus (1999), identified some of the problems facing cooperative societies in Nigeria to include; shortage of skilled personnel, inadequate financing, excessive government control and lack of trust among members.
Njoku (1999) enumerated constraint

The Role of Community-Based Organizations in Rural Development in Nigeria

Studies have shown that community based organizations (CBOs) have been part and parcel of every community in Nigeria.
          According to Anyanwu (1992) and Fakoya) et al (2000), this is based on the principle of “self-help”, “self reliance” and “citizen participation”,

Concept of Rural Development

The world bank sector policy paper 1975 sees rural development as an economic issue, that of raising the low levels of rural incomes, through agricultural modernization.

The Foundation of Women organizations

Women organizations are also community based organizations which are informal organizations, and are more pronounced in the rural areas.
          They contribute in cash, labour and materials like cement, sand corrugated iron sheets, woods etc.

Definition of Community-Based Organization

Community based organizations are formal voluntary social groups that are found in communities which differ in size, objectives and degree of interaction among members,
          They influence ideas and actions of others.  They have effective means of changing the structure of the communities, harnessing their resources and improving agricultural development.

Institutionalizing ethics in Nigerian Public Administration: is Code of Ethics described?

Every government of country of the world and organizations that describes progress and development have created atmosphere that promotes ethical decision-making by institutionalizing ethics and morals in their places of work by establishing code of ethics. According to Onah cited by Ezeani (2006) a code is a statement of policies principles or rules that guide behavior.  To him code is a statement of policies, principles of rules that guide behavior.

Evolution of Ethical Considerations in Public Administration.

Evolution of Ethical Considerations in Public Administration.

Public Administration in the earliest decades avoided problems of morality or ethics (Waldo, 1074). However, since the late 1960s, considerations of morality or ethics have been creeping into the public administration literature particularly the “new” public administration literature (Marini, 1971). There are many reasons for this development. First, is the recognition of the fact that a policy matter is inevitable a matter of

Conceptualizing values and Ethics in Public Administration.

In simple term, the values of a person or group are their moral principles and beliefs. To Mcshane and Glinow (2003) values…are stable long-lasting beliefs about what is important in a variety of situations. There are evaluative standards that help us define what is right or wrong, or good or bad, in the world. Indeed, values are at the heart of what influences employees, drives motivation and behavior. Thus, values not only represent what we want, they also state what we ought to do in socially desirable ways to achieve those needs (Mcshane and Glinow, 2003).

HOW TO SHARE DATA PLAN ON AIRTEL

I have been hearing people say that MBs (megabytes) can now be shared on certain mobile Networks in Nigeria, so I set sail to find out how true this is.



The first place I landed was Airtel. I discovered that can actually share MB on Airtel but not for free. I also discovered that for every MB you share or transfer, you will pay 100MB in return. From this, it will be advised that whenever you are sharing MB, you share huge amount so it will the sacrifice of paying a whole lot of 100MB, which is #1000.00 if you are buying it!

Secondly, Airtel has been very liberal in the aspect of their BlackBerry Services. When you pay for any of their BIS data plan, you can use it for any other purpose, unlike other stingy networks we have around.
so the key is, when you discover that your BIS is about to expire, you can share or transfer the remaining MB with your friends or other Airtel sim with which you can browse with your dongle (modem) or any other device. Isn't this lovely?
HOW TO SHARE NOW:
  1. To transfer 10MB;
dial: *141*712*11*recipient number#
e.g:*141*712*11*08126629049#
    2. To transfer 25MB
dial: *141*712*9*recipient number#
   3. To transfer 60MB
dial: *141*712*4*recipient number#
For more information, dial *141*1# and follow the voice prompt.
SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS  and remember to show your appreciation in the comment box.

HOW TO TRANSFER ETISALAT MEGABYTE TO ANOTHER ETISALAT USER

Here, we will discover that apart from Airtel, Etisalat also renders this service to its esteem customers. In the case of Etisalat, it is even more simpler and quick to perform. Here you are not charged anything to transfer megabytes unlike Airtel. Just type in the amount you want to transfer and press your send button and you are good to go!

FOLLOW THIS STEP:
Dial: *229*pin.*Amount of MB*phone No#, then you send.
example: *229*0000*40*08095837440#
This action will transfer 40MB to the recipient number (sim)
Very simple right?
SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS and remember to use our comment box to show appreciation.

HOW TO SHARE YOUR MTN MB WITH YOUR FRIENDS ON MTN

HOW TO SHARE MEGABYTES ON MTN

Airtel and Etisalat have been doing this wonderful service to humanity for a while now. We did a post for each of them so as to enable Nigerians enjoy the services easily. Many people who are addicted to MTN have been praying for this wonderful service to come to their rescue but until now when one of our own came up with a pattern and a tweak that will just do the trick. I am talking of the CEO, Crackloaded.com.
According to him, two simple steps are all you need to enjoy the service:
STEP ONE:
Send "Reg" in a sms to 131 and immediately the system will respond by sending you a message that contains:
                 Y'ello, you have successfully registered your 
MTN Shared Data Bundle, your default pin is 0000. 
Kindly change pin by texting 
'CHANGE OLD?PIN NEW?PIN NEW?PIN' to 131.

Quickly, what you are expected to do is to change your pin as described by the message MTN sent to you, following the above pattern.
Example: change 0000 1212 1212 and send it to 131 (Hope you know that its in a text message format and that 0000 is the default pin that you are expected to change and 1212 is the new pin. PLEASE you are not asked to use 1212. its just an example...lol). If you are able to get through with this, you almost there!

STEP TWO:
Here you will be able to transfer the MB from your MTN sim to that of your friends following this process:
GIFT()number()amount of MB()pin {note: () stands for space}
example: GIFT 08031234567 10 1212 AND send to 131 in sms.

Please note: For every MB you send MTN is going to deduct it from your phone. That is, if you transfer 10MB to a friend, MTN will immediately cut #100 from your account. So use it wisely!!!


Did you find this post useful, why not share it with your friends and family members.

Try and say thank you to Mr. Crackloaded using our comment box.

Investment is the change in capital stock during a period. Consequently, unlike capital, investment is a flow term and not a stock term. This means that capital is measured at a point in time, while investment can only be measure over a period of time.

Investment plays a very important and positive role for progress and prosperity of any country. Many countries rely on investment to solve their economic problem such as poverty, unemployment etc (Muhammad Haron and Mohammed Nasr (2004).

Restoring The Glory Of Breast feeding

IN Nigeria and Africa as a whole, breastfeeding has been the most culturally acceptable mode of feeding babies within the first two years of life. As a practice, breastfeeding has a strong connotation for promoting the bonding that started at pregnancy between mother and child.

Breastfeeding in the Nigerian setting has always been a thing of pride.   Culture actually demands that every mother should breastfeed her child except otherwise advised. Nigerian mothers used to be well known for breastfeeding anytime and anywhere.

Some even breastfeed while working on the farms, which is why advocates of breastfeeding recommend the continuation of the practice by breastfeeding babies wherever mothers earn their living.

Breast milk serves as the best food for babies that are less than six months. Breastfeeding a child provides all the goodness of breast milk that are known to be uniquely superior and vital for optimal infant physical, emotional and mental growth. It is essential for their healthy development and all other short and long term outcomes.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends that infants should be exclusively breastfed for the first six months of life to achieve optimal growth.

In response to the importance of exclusive breastfeeding, the Federal Government established the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) in Benin, Enugu, Maiduguri, Lagos, Jos and Port Harcourt with the aim of providing mothers and their infants a supportive environment for breastfeeding and to promote appropriate breastfeeding practices, thus helping to reduce infant morbidity and mortality rates.

It is, however, worrisome and unacceptable that Nigeria currently has one of the lowest exclusive breastfeeding rates in Africa.  In a National Demographic Health Survey (NDHS), the rate of exclusive breastfeeding in the country stood at 13 per cent.

Despite sustained efforts, exclusive breastfeeding rates in Nigeria have fallen well below the WHO/UNICEF recommendation of 90 per cent for children less than six months in developing countries. Currently, exclusive breastfeeding rates in Nigeria compare poorly with other neighbouring countries in Africa.

As the global community marks this year’s edition of the annual World Breastfeeding Day with the theme – “Breastfeeding And Work: Let’s Make It Together”, more involvement and dedication is required to galvanise multi-dimensional support to enable women everywhere work and breast feed.

Nursing mothers in particular require more support to combine breastfeeding with work in the formal, informal and home setting. The private sector must get involved in the process of encouraging breastfeeding mothers through provision of crèches and breastfeeding rooms in work places while approving flexible work hours for mothers.

The promotion of actions by employers to become baby friendly and actively facilitate the support of employed mothers to preserve and reap the benefits of the age-long practice of breast feeding, is a task that must be done.

How to outsmart your cunning mother-in-law!

EVERY time Ireti visited her mother-in-law, her teeth were always on edge. Ruth, her mother-in-law is now in her mid 70s, frail and ailing, but as full of spite as when Ireti married her precious son 15 years ago.

“Ruth and I had always been at war,” confessed Ireti, “but Gboye, my husband was unaware of this. He’d been the result of an affair his mum had with a wealthy industrialist who bought mother and son a house, but kept the ‘embarrassment’ of a love-child away from his family. In spite of this shabby treatment from Gboye’s father, Ruth was always throwing his name around and telling people how much money he lavished on her. Ireti said, “After the man died, when Gboye was in his teens, his mum had poured all her love onto her only child. No wonder he worshiped her. Her frailness never concealed her razor-sharp tongue, especially when we’re alone together.

“Gboye and I had gotten married when, we met abroad, so I was already a mother of two when we came back home. The first time I met her, she became hostile as soon as her son left the room, and instead of being intimidated by her hostility, my back was up! Who did she think she was? I was in the kitchen when she’d whispered to Gboye that he should have married a more suitable wife—only she was loud enough for me to hear. On our way home, I’d warned that if she would continue to be unfriendly, I wouldn’t visit any more. But Gboye pleaded I should be patient with her that she was just over-protective of him. That was hog-wash as far as I was concerned, and by the time I’d known her a couple of years, I’d realized how devious she was. To everyone else, she was a sweet old thing who doted on her son. To me she was vicious! My pounded yam was always lumpy. The house not clean enough and the children (now four) rowdy. I hated her as much as she hated me. Only, there was this silent agreement to pretend to get along for Gboye’s sake. That was why I swallowed my rage at her catty digs, plastered on a fake smile when she visited. ‘It’s a relief to see both of you get on so well,’ Gboye had observed with pride on our way from one of our visits to her. I bit my tongue hard to stop me from disagreeing with him.

“Shortly after this, Gboye dropped his bombshell—Ruth couldn’t be trusted to live on her own. Her health was failing and he would love for her to live with us. What? On a permanent basis? All I know was that we’d be at each other’s throats all the time if we lived under the same roof—that calculating dragon was bound to drive me round the bend? The news so caught me unawares that I burst into tears. Gboye was alarmed. Didn’t I want his mum living with us? he asked, confused. “Of course I do,” I lied. “The thing is, I’ve been having my own health problems lately and what with work and the children, I sometimes feel everything’s just getting on top of me.”

Gboye was now really concerned. He wanted to know what was wrong and I’d had to invent a disease, symptoms of which a friend recently discussed with me. He consoled me and seemed to have forgotten about wanting his mum to live with us. But I knew it would be a matter of weeks before that witch would bring up the topic again. Discreetly I visited Gboye’s uncle who had always been nice to me and who was aware of the hostility between Ruth and I, and cried my heart out to him. He told me to dry my tears. His house was virtually free now the children were grown, and Ruth would be more than welcome to live with him and his wife. They had a couple of servants and I promised to chip in at the expense of Ruth’s upkeep but he waved off the offer. He then suggested I shouldn’t say anything to Gboye, he would make it look as if it was his idea.

“It was a relieved Gboye who came home a couple of days later to tell me what a wonderful option his uncle just suggested to him. Relief surged through me but I quickly hid it as we got ready to give Ruth the good news. ‘I’m glad she would be looked after by her younger brother’, Gboye enthused. ‘She’ll be fine, and knowing her, she would adjust in no time’. I’d won this battle! As we discussed the option of her moving in with her brother, she glared with pure hatred at me—but I looked through her. I wished I could stick out my tongue at her in triumph. Fancy living with that kind of a woman and for God knows how many years! People like her seldom die easily!”
