PAY YOUR RESPECT LIKE BILLS...

Sometimes you think you know everything, then you meet someone that opens your eyes.

When you think you're protecting them, they're actually protecting you...

Elders, pay respect to them. 

Pay it on time like your bills... don't wait till the forth or fifth notice... cause in a short while, you might not see them again.


Got this from Bernie Mac show...

PDO TUTORIAL SERIES 1

WHAT IS PDO?

PDO is an acronym for PHP Data Objects. PDO is a lean, consistent way to access databases. This means developers can write portable code much easier. 

According to php.net, It is an extension that defines a lightweight, consistent interface for accessing databases in PHP.

PDO provides a data-access abstraction layer, which means that, regardless of which database you're using, you use the same functions to issue queries and fetch data.

MY LAGOS EXPERIENCE... A LITTLE PUSH... TOTAL CHAOS...

So many people in Lagos State are on the verge of total mental breakdown, with just a little push... they just loose it... Such is the experience i had this morning, i am so thankful i was not the one in the young man's shoe... So what happened?

A woman was so 'edgy' and restless, she kept moving and moving, though she was sitting beside me... I felt like complaining but then I didn't... The guy behind me, adjacent to her was not comfortable with her moving around (imagine how i would have felt?)... so he did the complaining... And that was the little push she needed... She start hurling insults at him with a very loud voice, no one responded including the guy that complained... Then when she wouldn't stop talking... the young man probably felt more irritated, responded to her insults... and you can be sure, that was all she needed for total madness.... And then it dawned on me... She's not mentally normal...

The first man cured of HIV, formerly known only as the “Berlin Patient,” released a first-person account Tuesday of his breakthrough stem cell transplant. Timothy Ray Brown’s essay, which was published in the journal Aids Research and Human Retroviruses, gives an in-depth look at the events surrounding his widely reported 2007 transplant.


Brown was first diagnosed with HIV in 1995 while attending college in Berlin. In 2006, he was so tired during a bike ride that he had to stop midway; the extreme exhaustion prompted him to go to the doctor’s office, where he was diagnosed with leukemia.

CAN YOU BUY THE NEW NOKIA PHONE?.. 29 DAYS OF BATTERY LIFE ON STANDBY

Nokia always had a reputation for building well-made, affordable handsets that appeal to the hundreds of millions around the world who can’t afford full-fat smartphones — and Microsoft is apparently keen to continue that legacy. Eight months after buying Nokia, the US company has launched the new Nokia 215.

It costs just $29 pre-tax and is aimed at emerging markets, offering customers 29 days of battery life on standby, a dual-SIM option, a built-in torch, and FM Radio. There's also a 2.4-inch, 320 x 240 display, a 0.3-megapixel camera, and Bluetooth connectivity. Crucially, however, Microsoft say the 215 is their "most affordable Internet-ready entry-level phone yet," offering the Opera Mini mobile browser and a limited array of pre-installed apps including Twitter, Facebook, Messenger, and Bing Search.
