Understandably, it is not every elder who knows how to use a smartphone, oftentimes; they are put through by their children. No matter the divide you belong, there are important and helpful apps that must be present in the device of all elders. These apps will ease many of the tasks they do especially when the children are not around to assist them.


A major difficulty that seniors face is reading. As they advance in age, vision changes and the eyes become less effective compared to when they were young. The EyeReader App makes it possible to read despite their age. The app converts an iPhone into a glass with light that you can zoom.


For seniors who are always alone at home, this is the perfect app to remind you to take your drugs. Of course, adults will always be forgiven if they forget to take their drugs. But the effect of this may be dire. It is easy to use because it allows you to effectively manage your meds.


Seniors are lonely today because they have few people to interact with. And they love to talk. Since no one is available and they can walk around like in the past, CogniFit app can easily fit in. The app has puzzles, trivia, number games and brainteasers that will task the brain as well as keep their mind in good shape.


Talking to anyone in any part of the world is very essential. With Skype, seniors can make cheap and affordable calls. The video call option where they can see whoever they are talking to is also available.


This is for elders who find it difficult to view the names and numbers in their contact list because of their failing eyes. BigNames enlarge the text for you to see clearly.

Things you Should Never Say to Solo Female Travelers

When Nigerians see lone female travelers, all sorts of thoughts flood into their mind. The most obvious question they ask themselves is why she is travelling alone? Oftentimes, than not, they frown at solo female travelers. This disposition is often hinged on either ethnicity or religion. The advantages of travelling alone as a female either from Olumirin waterfalls in Osun or the Lekki Leisure Lake in Lagos cannot be overemphasized. In fact, there are now many women travelling alone.  It is important for you to know the things to  say to these women. We are here to points to you some of these things.

You are travelling alone. What about your  friends or boyfriend?

It doesn’t necessarily mean that because a woman is travelling alone she has no friends, family or even a boyfriend. It is always wonderful to have a travel mate while travelling. But, some women may just want an alone time, hence they hit the road for a thrilling vacation on their own. Besides, there is no written rule where her significant other should always travel with her.

Are you not scared?

There are lots of things that happen on the road that can freak out travelers including the female travelling alone. Of course, you will be terrified, but it doesn’t stop her from journeying solo. The fact is that men can't be asked this question. She is aware of the risk before deciding to travel under her own steam. You don’t need to say anything to her.

Be safe

Typical Nigerians don’t hesitate to offer unsolicited advice. Although you may be genuinely concerned about her safety. Every traveler knows that their safety is paramount and not to wander aimlessly. Hence, it is not in your place to tell them.

Are you married?

For single women who are not travelling, they are always asked, are you married? This question pop up from time to time even  if they observe that you are not wearing a wedding band. So, when next you see a female traveler alone, don’t ask if she is married. Women feel uncomfortable with this question.  

Don’t you ever get lonely?

It is awesome to always have a travel mate or companion that you can chat or share memorable moments with. It will definitely make you feel better. But since she is on her own, you don't need to worry about being lonely. She will simply enmesh herself in the thrills and frills of the destination thus forgetting that you are alone.

You are so brave!

Yes! Women who travel alone are brave. You may consider it a compliment but women don’t find this statement funny at all. It is like you are eroding their independence, drive to travel and resourcefulness. Only brave women travel but you don’t have to say it to their faces!

Facebooking instead of reading books

For many kids who own smartphones, their new book is
Facebook. They spend so much time on social media that they barely read their books. This will no doubt affect their output and performance in school. This can be clearly reflected in the recent failures recorded in national exams.

With a smartphone, children get unhindered access to nude images and watch inappropriate content online. You will not be aware of this except you check their online activities. But this will be difficult because they know how to hide these contents.


Instant messaging apps like WhatsApp, BBM and Facebook messengers amongst others have made it easy for sexting to happen. Sexting means chatting about sex on the aforementioned instant messaging platforms. A handful of kids engaged in sexting.

Digital dementia

Many kids are now suffering from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). They can only concentrate on their phones. Children can’t learn if they cannot pay attention.

Early addiction

If your child is having ADD, it is time to take away that phone from them. This will help them break the addiction before it becomes uncontrollable. According to a recent study, one in 11 children aged 8-18 years are addicted to technology. You don’t want this for your child.

The only way that one knows that an antigen-antibody reaction has occurred is to have some means of directly or indirectly detecting the complexes formed between the antigen and antibody. The ease with which one can detect antigen-antibody reactions will depend on a number of factors. Many factors influence antigen-antibody reactions. They can be conveniently classified in two groups, according to whether they act on the equilibrium constant or not.


The higher the affinity of the antibody


Lock and Key Concept 

The combining site of an antibody is located in the Fab portion of the molecule and is constructed from the hypervariable regions of the heavy and light chains. X-Ray crystallography studies of antigen-antibody interactions show that the antigenic determinant nestles in a cleft formed by the combining site of the antibody. Thus, our concept of antigen-antibody reactions is one of a key (i.e. the antigen) which fits into a lock (i.e. the antibody).

Definition of Immunogen

An Immunogen is a substance (or adduct) that is able to trigger a humoral and/or cell-mediated immune response.(Parham, Peter, 2009). It first initiates an innate immune response, which then causes the activation of the adaptive immune response.

Antigen-antibody interaction

Antigen-antibody interaction, or antigen-antibody reaction, is a specific chemical interaction between antibodies produced by B cells of the white blood cells and antigens during immune reaction. It is the fundamental reaction in the body by which the body is protected from complex foreign molecules, such as pathogens and their chemical toxins.
