Recruitment - EFCC To Recruit 2,250;

EFCC To Recruit 2,250; 750 Employees Per Year As Buhari Approves. 

As part of plans to beef up the anti-graft war, President Muhammadu Buhari has approved 2, 250 job slots for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The agency is expected to recruit 750 new employees per annum over three years.

The anti-graft agency in collaboration with the Federal Character Commission (FCC) has started the recruitment test nationwide based on the zonal offices of the EFCC in order to create a level-playing ground for candidates.

The commission was also said to have resorted to zonal basis in order to avoid a repeat of the stampede which affected a similar exercise in the Nigerian Immigration Service.

The President approved the slots to increase the commission's number of core and support staff since the anti-graft war is moving to the next stage.

It was however learnt that some highly-placed Nigerians want the recruitment to hold in Abuja so as to be able to wield influence.

A document obtained by our correspondent indicated that the EFCC has written to the Federal Character Commission (FCC) and obtained approval to go ahead with the recruitment.

The document showed that each zonal recruitment test is being coordinated by a Director of EFCC, two commissioners from the EFCC and other top staff of the anti-graft agency.

A source, who spoke in confidence, said: "The approval letter was specific that we should employ at least 750 workers per year for the next three years. We have brought this approval to the notice of the relevant committees in the National Assembly. There is no question of secret or under-the-table recruitment.

"We decided to take the recruitment process to the zonal offices to create a level-playing ground for all. And given the high number of applicants, we chose zonal procedure to avoid recruitment stampede.

"But we are not waiving our recruitment procedures under any guise for the new hands. Apart from screening their certificates, we subject them to covert investigation and ask them to write tests.

"In order to be fair to all candidates, we are conducting the recruitment process at our zonal offices and after selecting the best, the relevant desks at the headquarters will further evaluate their performance based on our tight regulations.

"At the end of the day, the best candidates will proceed to the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) in Kaduna for training.

It was also learnt that Magu has drawn only 37 per cent of the N150million security votes appropriated for the EFCC chairman in 2017.

This is contrary to insinuations that the Acting EFCC chairman had been getting N15million monthly as security votes.

Another official said: "The records are clear. With a month left to the end of the year, Magu has only collected 37 per cent of the statutory N150million security votes (per year) for the office of the EFCC chairman. This is the least the commission has ever recorded."

Tips For Healthy Eating

Everybody wants to eat healthily but most people don't, not because they are too lazy to discipline themselves to do so but because they just don't know how. Many have tried to eat healthily but after a short while they seem to regress, and it is still for the same reason of not knowing how to eat healthily.
Eat What You Want
Surprising right? But you can totally eat what you want when intending to eat healthily, the only thing that really matters is 'portion'. Every food has benefits and detriments, meaning there is no food that is well-prepared or packaged that is completely bad for you, it always has a benefit or two. However, some foods should be taken in moderation because taking them liberally will ultimately be bad for your body and end up frustrating your intention to eat healthily. You can also think of it this way – 80% of the time you should eat healthily while the remaining 20% of the time you can eat whatever you want in moderation.

Don't Have Cheat Days
Having cheat days unconsciously makes you develop a diet mentality that can be detrimental to your healthy eating plans. Healthy eating should be a lifestyle, something you do because it makes you feel good about yourself and is good for your body and well-being. It should not be a diet thing and as a result, you don't have to have 'cheat days'. As explained above, there is no food that is in itself bad for you (as long as it is well washed, prepared, packaged etc.), what matters is just the quantity. If you must take something sugary, simply take it in moderation, you don't have to wait for a 'cheat day'. Cheat days can really be very counterproductive and the main reason for this is that they encourage indulgence because you tend to 'overdo it' on these days since you're more prone to shun the concept of healthy eating.

Focus More on 'Abundance' than 'Restriction'
Rather than focusing on what you should not be eating, it is more productive to focus on what you should be eating. This 'abundance' mentality will make it easier for you to adjust to eating healthily than the 'restriction' mentality. For example, rather than obsessing on not being able to eat this or that because of this or that, focus more on the things you can or should be eating or eating more of, which include – proteins, fibre etc.

Understand The Need to Boost Your Activity
The reason why, as humans, we have so many joints in our body is because we were created to move. No matter how healthily you eat, if you are not active, eating healthily will do little for you. You simply need to move your body. Working out is one way to do so but it is not the only way - this one thing most people fail to understand. There are many people that lose weight or keep fit without necessarily working out because they move around a lot, they don't live a sedentary life. If you simply become more active in your daily life, you might not even need to work out or rather your activity can easily become your work out.

Features of iphone 8 plus

It's easy to write-off the iPhone 8 Plus as a minor upgrade to the iPhone 7. Certainly, iPhone 7 owners might be hesitant to upgrade unless they're on one of the yearly upgrade programs. But I do think the iPhone 8 Plus earns its crust as more than just the usual "S" designation Apple uses on odd years.

Here are five reasons why iPhone 8 Plus is worth buying.

The screen

True Tone is amazing. This tech is what allows the iPhone to match the light it produces from the screen to the ambient light around you. So outdoors, in daylight, the screen is a cooler, bluer tone and indoors it has a warmer hue to it.

Why does this matter? Well, it allows for better on-screen colours. The purpose is to try and make sure you always see what's on screen as a perfect reproduction, and True Tone is designed to help prevent the ambient light from distorting what the display shows you. Some people love it, some hate it but I think it makes the iPhone a lot nicer to look at.

And the screen, in general, is capable and stunning, even when compared to the OLED in the iPhone X - there's a reason Apple stuck with LCD for so long, it's very reliable and produces great results at lower costs and higher yields. 

Apple's wide colour gamut support means that colours are rich and scream at you with real power but they also retain their ties to the real world. This is not the case with Samsung's Note 8, which I feel over-saturates everything to the point of distorting reality. It looks good, but it doesn't match the realism of the iPhone 8 Plus.

Nearly as good as the iPhone X, significantly cheaper

Look, I'm a sucker for the iPhone X but the reality of that phone is that it's tricky to get hold of, and reasonably expensive. If you're in the market for a new device and want to get, perhaps, 95% of the features then the iPhone 8 Plus is the phone for you.

From a pricing perspective, the iPhone 8 Plus in the larger 256GB capacity is $50 cheaper than the iPhone X 64GB. And even more staggering, the 64GB iPhone 8 Plus is $200 cheaper than the 64GB iPhone X.

We all want the iPhone X, but right now the practicalities of that make it a somewhat difficult choice.

Incredible power

In the right circumstances, the iPhone 8 Plus is much, much more powerful than the iPhone 7 Plus. How so? Well, Apple now designs its own GPU too, which gives it control over optimisations. This means that the iPhone 8 is able to make photo processing a real-time endeavour while a lot of phones need extra time to process images.

This is apparent in the new portrait modes which require considerable processing. It's also visible in the AR apps that Apple is now pushing with its devices. Both of these are slick and smooth and happen in real time or, in the case of some photos very close to it.

This might now sound like much, but when you're shooting photos you don't want the camera to be locked up while you want to get on to take the next snap. The power helps Apple do what Apple does best - seamless hardware and software integration.

And the extra speed means that the phone should last you longer too. Apple will support new versions of iOS on this for years to come, so while the phone is expensive there's no reason to believe it won't last you two, three or even four years - as long as you get a case.

Stunning video and photos

I'm a video guy, I love video. The iPhone 8 Plus really takes video to a new level thanks to 240fps slow motion at 1080p and 4K video recording at 60p.

Apple doesn't have the fastest slow motion going, that honour goes to Sony with a massive 900fps. The problem is, Sony's allows a fraction of a second record time at that rate, and capturing things is hard and requires staggering amounts of light. Apple's more moderate slow motion is seemingly unlimited in duration, and produces a massive slowdown for high-speed action. It also does so at full HD.

Then there's 4K video at 60 frames per second. This is a feature that a lot of expensive video cameras don't have. What it gives you is smooth and crisp video that has insanely high resolutions. It's an amazing tool for shooting videos of pets, kids and life in general. It won't look stuttery like 24fps video does, and if you want to apply effects later to make a more "film" look, you certainly can do.

Think of 4K 60p as an archiving format that will give your videos a lot of life for years to come. And right now, the iPhone is the only device that can really deliver these amazing video features.

And we all know the iPhone stills camera is great. New portrait modes make the 8 Plus a stunning camera to photograph things with. Things like Stage Lighting are still being tested, and need some work - but even so, they can produce stunning results.

Wireless charging

Yes, I have a Palm Pre that had this nearly a decade ago and your toothbrush probably uses this tech too. But again, it's not so much about the fact that Apple has included it, but what it offers on Apple devices. After all, Android users that already have wireless charging aren't going to suddenly shout "this is the feature that was preventing me from becoming an iPhone owner".

The thing with Apple's Qi implementation is that it's just better than any other I've seen. My Note 8 uses the same Samsung charging pad as the iPhone, but it's more tricky to place correctly, and it takes ages to detect the charger. The iPhone, on the other hand, picks up the charger incredibly quickly and then starts charging far sooner than the Android devices I've checked.

And then add in the option of an Apple-built charger that does your watch, the phone and AirPods and you start to see how Apple takes tech and makes it more cohesive and whole.

Generally, the eggs of snails are lemon yellow in colour and resemble small bird’s eggs.  The eggs hatch usually within 30 days.  Young adult snails lay more eggs than old ones. Where to get snails for your farm: The farmer can gather wild snails from nearby bushes for use in his farm.  He could also buy from people who gather and sell wild snails.  Snails could equally be bought from another snail farmer in his locality.  

Snail Farming

Snail Farming
According to Awa (2003), snail farming is the rearing of snails in captivity.  The snails are confined in an enclosure and most of their requirements like feed; water and lime are supplied on a regular basis by the farmer.  On maturity, the snails are harvested, processed and consumed by the farmer or sold.  Since the seasonality of supply of snails from the wild limits their use for meat on a continuous basis, the need for organized small or large scale snail farming has become imperative. There are two main systems of snail farming.  These are indoor and outdoor systems.
