Whatsapp Will Stop Working On These Phones From 2018





WHATSAPP WILL STOP WORKING ON THESE PHONES ON NEW YEAR'S DAY

Which phones will WhatsApp stop working on? These are the devices which will not support WhatsApp from January 1 2018

This is because WhatsApp has become one of the most popular messaging services to date over the past few years due to its ability to work on all devices - something which iMessage does not have.

Some phone users will have to say goodbye to the app from January 1 2018 though.

The service was bought by Facebook in 2016 but 2018 will see it become incompatible for older devices.


The reason behind this is that when the service was founded in 2009, the mobile landscape was very different. Back then, everybody thought a Blackberry was the phone to have but now they are seldom seen.

"About 70% of smartphones sold at the time had operating systems offered by BlackBerry and Nokia," the company explained.

"Mobile operating systems offered by Google, Apple and Microsoft - which account for 99.5% of sales today - were on less than 25% of mobile devices sold at the time."


SO WHICH PHONES WILL WHATSAPP STOP WORKING ON?

The full list of unsupported devices from January 1 2018:

BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10
Android 2.1 and Android 2.2
Windows Phone 7 (and any phone using Windows 8 or older)
iPhone 3GS/iOS 6

IN THE FUTURE
Nokia S40 (from December next year)

Android 2.3.7 and older (from February 2020)

He added that it would also give hope and practical support to the youths who are key to the state’s prosperous future. The governor further appealed to the State House of Assembly to expedite action for quick passage of the budget.

Despite The Anti-Open Grazing Law, Herds Of Cattle Seen Roaming In Makurdi





Some Fulani herdsmen violated the Anti-Open Grazing Law and they were spotted Wednesday with their cattle around North Bank area of Markurdi. 
This was made known when an activist took to Facebook to share a post and wrote: "THIS IS NORTH BANK MAKURDII just saw these cows with the herdsmen passing in front of the police station and the check Points. My point is should I have come down to report to the police there? I made a post about this same spot last week where these herdsmen made their way again in front of the police station and some people in their comments said I should have reported to the security. They are in front of the security so who should I report to now again?"
#THEANTIOPENGRAZINGBILLMUSTWORK
It would be recalled that the Anti-Open Grazing prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law was signed by Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, on May 22 and went into effect on November 1, 2017.

Ikoyi Whistle-Blower Jets Out As FG Pays First Tranche Of His N421m Reward





The whistle-blower, who helped the EFCC recover the $43m, N23.2m and £27,800 (N13bn) from an Ikoyi apartment on April 12, 2017, has finally been paid his commission, Punchng reports. .

It was also learnt that the whistle-blower travelled out of the country less than 24 hours after receiving part of the N421m reward. The whistle-blower’s lawyer, Mr. Yakubu Galadima, confirmed the development on Wednesday.


He praised the government for finally honouring its agreement after eight months. He, however, said his client had not been paid in full, adding that the FG had promised to pay him the balance next year.
The N13bn recovered from the Osborne Towers was said to have been part of the $289,202,382 the NIA received from the Central Bank of Nigeria in February 2015. .

The transaction was purportedly approved by former President Goodluck Jonathan through the embattled former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.). .

On paper, the transaction was known as an intervention fund for national security or special services with the aim of fighting insurgency during the six weeks period between February 14 and March 28 after the election was postponed.


However, the operatives of the EFCC believe that the money was meant to finance the 2015 general elections. No one has, however, been prosecuted till date.

JAMB Admission Success Tips For All Candidates





The new admission procedure in Nigeria has put some students in panic. Scoring a high mark in JAMB is the best way to have hope of admission. JAMB slashed the cut off marks to 120 but that didn't stop top universities like UI, UNILAG, OAU, UNILORIN and UNIBEN from sticking to their usual 200 cut-off mark. If you want to get into one of these top universities, then you are in for some smart work. Scoring 250+ in JAMB is no difficult task. All you need is the right subject combination and your passion. You can not have passion for engineering and decide to study medicine, you will eventually get lost. Here are things to take note of:

1. Identify your passion: Like I said earlier, You can not have passion for engineering and decide to study medicine, you will eventually get lost. You have to identify the subjects you are passionate about. For example, if you are a science student and you are in love with chemistry, you should go for chemistry - related courses and draft them down. What courses would be in your mind? Pharmacy, pharmacology, lab science and technology, chemical engineering, medicine and surgery, nursing, dentistry etc. These are the top courses related to chemistry. When you draft them down, you can start identifying your passion for each course. Are you a fan of doctors?
Would you love to be like Otedola and own a filling station? Or would you rather spend 5 years and be established on your own as a pharmacist? When you identify what you want, keep that in mind. Let your day rotate around it.

2. Subject combination: Since you have combined your passion and sub-passion, you have to get the best subject combination for your course. Wrong subject combination is one of the major reasons why some intelligent students fail.to be admitted into universities. A pharmacy aspirant may think because mathematics was always important in their secondary school, they must do it in JAMB and prove themselves. Even if you get a 100% in mathematics and 90% in the three other subjects, you won't still gain admission because of your subject combination. The correct subject combination for pharmacy is English, chemistry and biology. It's only a handful of courses that you need mathematics in your JAMB. 
3. WORK SMART: Don't just work hard, also work smart. Smart work means utilising your opportunities in the easiest ways possible to bring out the best result. A student who is aspiring for pharmacy would write English, chemistry, biology and physics. Before the student applied for this, he/she must have had passion for at least one of these subjects...especially chemistry since it's like the bed-rock of pharmacy. Now if that student focuses more on chemistry with at least an average knowledge of other subjects, he should attain 250+ in his JAMB.
LET'S DO THE MATH 
You read well on chemistry since it's your favourite subject and you try your best to get at least 85%, physics 55%, English 65% and biology 52%...that's a total of 257 in your JAMB. That is pretty nice for any university but it also depends on your O'level result and post utme. You can achieve more than this if you read the English novels given during registration. At least 10 questions are set based on these novels, if you can manage to get 8 of them correctly and boost your total score to 75, you will see your JAMB score rising to 267. In any university in Nigeria, you already qualify for screening if you have this kind of result with a good O'level result and post utme score.

4. Be confident: This is what you need the most if you are planning to implement all these techniques. Without confidence, you might see yourself picking the wrong answers in the exam hall. Then you submit your exam and start hitting your head like "why why why". Make sure you gather as much courage as you can before the day if the exam. Set a goal for yourself. While solving past questions, set the score you want to reach and make sure you achieve it before the exam. This will boost your confidence level above 100%. But don't be overconfident. Try to access all your works and correct your mistakes. Make sure you are fast but at the same time, careful. When you have calculations, skip them. Don't even try to solve any calculation until you are through with all your questions then you can return to your calculation and take as much time as you like. Even if you calculate three out of five, it can go a long way in your result. Confidence is key! You can also formulate a quote that boosts your confidence e.g all is well, It is I, I got this.
Bonus: PRAY! PRAY! PRAY! All work and no prayer, makes JAMBITES register again. Make sure you pray for what you want and thank God for doing it before it is done. 
I wish you good luck! 

Why You Should NEVER Eat After 7pm




Eating late at night is putting millions of people in danger of heart attacks and strokes, experts warn. A late-night meal keeps the body on 'high alert' when it should be winding down, researchers found.

Heart experts recently advised that adults should never eat within two hours of bedtime – and ideally nothing after 7pm. In a healthy person, blood pressure drops by at least 10 per cent when they go to sleep. But the results of a study of more than 700 people with high blood pressure found that eating within two hours of bedtime meant their levels stayed high.


Experts think this is because eating releases a rush of stress hormones when the body should be starting to relax. People who do not see their blood pressure fall at night are known as 'non-dippers' – and have a much higher rate of heart-related death. Late eaters were nearly three times more likely to be non-dippers, the Turkish researchers found.

Researcher Dr Ebru Özpelit, presenting her results at the speaking at the European Society of Cardiology congress in Rome, said: 'If we eat late at night, the body essentially remains on high alert as during the day, rather than relaxing for sleep. 'Stress hormones are secreted, causing blood pressure not to decrease during sleep, which should normally happen.

'Dr Özpelit, from Dokuz Eylül University in Turkey, tracked 721 on people diagnosed with high blood pressure, with an average age of 53. She found that those who ate within two hours of going to bed were 2.8 times more likely to retain high blood pressure overnight. Some 9.4 million people in the UK are diagnosed with high blood pressure, which is also known as hypertension.


They are already at a higher risk of heart disease, but if their blood pressure does not fall at night, that risk increases to a far higher level. Experts estimate that 40 per cent of patients with hypertension are non-dippers – potentially 3.76million people in Britain - putting them at serious risk of major heart problems. Dr Özpelit said:

'It is more dangerous. If blood pressure doesn't drop by more than 10 per cent this increases cardiovascular risk and these patients have more heart attacks, strokes and chronic disease.' But even healthy people with normal blood pressure should take note of the findings, Dr Özpelit said.

'How we eat may be as important as what we eat,' she said. She advised that people do not skip breakfast, eat lunch, and keep dinner to a small meal. 'Eating breakfast and lunch is important but dinner must not be later than seven o'clock in the evening,' she said.

The findings add to a growing body of evidence which suggests keeping all meals to within a fixed period of time – and fasting at night – can have a wide range of health benefits. Previous research has found that an early dinner reduces the risk of  breast cancer, lowers blood sugar levels, and helps burn off calories. Experts think part of the reason is that the body evolved to expect meals much earlier in the day – because people went to sleep when it got dark.

Dr Özpelit said the invention of electricity changed that – introducing 'erratic' eating patterns. 'With the advent of affordable artificial lighting and industrialization, modern humans began to experience prolonged hours of illumination every day and resultant extended consumption of food,' she said.


'Late night eating and skipping breakfast is such an erratic eating pattern which is becoming more prevalent day by day.' Professor Peter Weissberg, medical director of the British Heart Foundation, said: 'This research suggests that eating a meal late at night may contribute to the failure of their blood pressure to reduce.

'It is normal for blood pressure to reduce overnight, even in people with high blood pressure. 'However, in some their blood pressure remains elevated throughout the night putting them at potentially higher risk of future complications.

Photo: 32 SARS Operatives In Detention In Abuja, With Most Of Them From Lagos State





At least 32 operatives of the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) are currently in detention, TheCable reports.

According to the report, that the arrested officers were moved to Abuja from different state commands during the weekend. “The suspects, who are all male, are now being held at various detention cells of the Federal SARS at Guzape District Abuja,” a source said.


Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of police, who reportedly ordered their arrests, is said to have assembled a team of top police investigators to look into their cases. TheCable learnt that they are being investigated for cases ranging from extortion, robbery, rape, among others. .

The commands where the suspects were serving have been directed to report to Abuja with proofs and exhibits needed in the course of investigation. The source said Lagos command has the highest number of suspects, next to the federal capital territory (FCT). .


“Their immediate orderly room trial and punitive measures will also become part of the ongoing moves to stem the tide of alleged impunity being campaigned against the police institution,” the source said. .

“At a recent meeting with the police management team, the IGP decided to apply prompt punishment for any SARS officer found wanting, here in Abuja instead of their commands where such cases are not properly handled. .

Jimoh Moshood, force public relations officer, confirmed the arrests but did not disclose the number of operatives in detention. “I am aware of their investigation but I don’t know the number of people involved,” he said.
