Selfies: (Noun) used before a verb. The ability to create amazing pictures of yourself, by yourself using the front camera of your smartphone.

Selfies have become a word that conjure up reactions such as pouting, tongue-out, head tilting, cheering, and different funny expressions from the person pressing the selfie camera button.
No doubt, selfies are fun to take, but the social media reactions in terms of likes and comments on them makes them more pleasing. Whether you like selfies or not, the truth is no one wants to end up with a bad picture on social media. This is why we have created a list of five creative tips to make your selfies picture-perfect!

Strike flattering poses: strike a pose that doesn’t accentuate your best facial features and you will have people swiping to the next post without even clicking the like button. Take note that your posture matters. So, take selfies from the right angles that show clear detail of your profile. You can pop one hip to the side for a slimmer waistline, or try placing a hand on a hip for slender looking arms among other stunning poses.

Check out the lighting: most people make the mistake of taking selfies by backing the light, but not only does it reflects poorly in the picture but it creates a distracting glare and overexposes your selfie. So next time, find good ambient light to illuminate your face without exposing every detail.

Optimize your background: imagine taking a selfie with a background that screams creepiness. Your background is a very important element in photography. Learn to remove unnecessary distraction and clutter that can make your picture look shabby

Use the right selfie camera smartphone: you can only get all these steps right if you have the most resourceful smartphone in hand. I would recommend the new itel S15 Pro, a smartphone built to fulfill a selfie lover’s dream. With a 16MP AI selfie camera and the new AI Face Beauty Mode 3.0, you get to capture not just clear but clearer, brighter and excellent selfies both in bright and low light conditions. Also, the advanced Screen Fill Light technology provides you with a softer and more balanced light source than selfie flashlights. It also helps you to create radiant selfie moments at any time of the day. Other specs include 2GB RAM +32GB ROM (expandable up to 128GB ROM), Dual 4G internet connectivity, triple rear camera, face unlock, fingerprint sensor, and a 3000mAh battery with AI Power Master.  itel S15 Pro is a smartphone for everyone that is available at an affordable price.  

Take selfies using high angles. Remember to take selfies horizontally. Always make use of hashtags to increase the chances of your picture getting seen.

The complaint led to arrangement for launch of a modified reality show where the true Nigerian culture will be shown, Nigerian food will be eaten and Nigerian dresses worn. Otunba Segun Runsewe, the National Council for Arts and Culture Director-General disclosed this when paid a visit by the President of the National Council of Women Societies Dr Gloria Shoda.  It is also expected that the NCAC will represent the 2008 Nudity Bill titled ‘A Bill for an Act to punish and prohibit nudity, segxwal intimidation and other-related offences in Nigeria,' sponsored by the former chairperson, Senate Committee on Women and Youth, Eme Ekaette.

“We are going to represent that bill You can’t fight a battle without a legal framework; we are definitely going to be conscious of that”, Runsewe assured.

 “I will take up the issue of Big Brother Naija; I have spoken with officials of the National Broadcasting Commission because what is going on now is terrible. Having love affairs on screen is not part of our own culture at all.  “Let me use this forum to tell Nigerians that a new Big Brother Naija is on its way coming and we are working with Startimes. We are doing BBN that will reflect the true Nigerian culture. We are already working on it, all that will be eaten there will be Nigerian food, the dresses will be Nigerian dresses" he added.  On her own part, the NCWS President said she was concerned with the negative impact the live sex has on Nigerian youths.

Shoda said, “Having a live sex on stage is the thing affecting my sensibility and it is impacting negatively on the young children coming up. Does it mean that they can’t abstain from sex for three months? I’m condemning the sex content on BBN.”

It has come to my notice that a post was made about myself and the Luminee brand about an unfair treatment of my assistant who was was instructed to kneel outside my house.

First of all, I will like to let everyone know that I wasn't the one who told her to kneel outside, under the sun.

Secondly, she was punished by her uncle who introduced her to me because of integrity issue; please watch the video to the end.

I always treat my workers like family members; we hangout, take pictures and do a lot together and I will never ask any one of them to kneel in the sun. Even if they offend me badly, I will rather punish them like I can punish my own daughter - Anjy.

Those who know me closely know that it is not in my character to treat anyone badly because I know where I'm coming from and I have never forgotten that for once.

12  Forum / Law and Crime / Nigeria Pirates Have Been Accused Of Fresh Kidnap Of Seamen In Gulf Of Guinea on: 16-08-2019 08:11 AM

Cameroonian Navy has begun a search for an unknown number of Asian and European seamen who were kidnapped Thursday aboard a vessel in the Gulf of Guinea off the southern port of Douala. “(They) were abducted this morning,” said the source, who gave no details about the number or nationality of the kidnap victims. The name of the vessel was also not given.

“The kidnappers are probably Nigerian pirates,” the source said. “Cameroonian forces have launched search operations.” An official at Douala port confirmed the kidnappings, and said the seamen had been taken after their ship came under attack.

“We don’t know the number of abducted seamen for the time being,” the official said. The Gulf of Guinea, whose coastline stretches in a huge arc from Liberia to Gabon, is notorious for piracy as well as oil theft, illegal fishing and human and drugs trafficking.

According to the International Maritime Bureau (IMB) 62 seafarers were taken hostage or abducted in the area in the first half of 2019. The Gulf of Guinea accounted for 73 percent of kidnappings and 92 percent of hostage-takings at sea worldwide, it says.

The 17 countries in the Gulf of Guinea and adjacent regions have limited surveillance and maritime defence capabilities. They have been trying for several years to bolster their means of intervention and to put in place closer collaboration.

15  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Nigerians Spend More Time On Twitter and Instagram Than Americans and British Combined on: 16-08-2019 07:31 AM

Nigerians spend more time on social media than citizens of most countries, according to a survey conducted by Global Web Index, a market research company. In the survey, 575,000 internet users aged 16-64 were interviewed across 46 markets. The social media networks considered in the survey include Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, Facebook Messenger, LinkedIn, Skype, Snapchat, Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest, among others. The findings revealed that Nigerians spend an average of three hours 30 minutes on social media, coming second after citizens of the Philippines who spend an average of four hours one minute per day.

Nigeria is followed by Mexico whose citizens spend three hours 10 minutes, then Turkey with an average of three hours five minutes. The high level of social media engagements in these countries could be as a result of the youthful population and the younger demographics of the markets. In Nigeria, the unemployment rate might have also contributed to the high social media engagement, as Nigerians have sought ways to monetise activities on social media. Lots of trading activities, such as sales of clothes, shoes, and other items are being carried out on social media. Services such as social media influencing, media commentating, comedy, dance, among others are also being promoted through social media. There are also people who make money through sharing contents for brands, politicians and companies.

Meanwhile, citizens of Russia, India, and China spend over two hours on social media networks daily, while citizens of the US, UK, Spain, France, and Germany spend over an hour, according to the report. Japan citizens spend 45 minutes, which is as a result of the low birth rate in the country. Japan has the highest proportion of older people – or those aged 65 and over – in the world, followed by Italy, Portugal and Germany. The survey also showed that social media use shrunk in the first quarter of 2019 when compared with 2018 figures.

19  Forum / Law and Crime / Head of Service, Oyo-Ita Lands In Hospital After EFCC Drilled Her Over N3billion Contract Scam on: 15-08-2019 09:38 AM

Mrs. Winifred Ekanem Oyo-Ita, Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, was on Wednesday interrogated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over alleged N3billion contract scam and for alleged abuse of duty tour allowance, money laundering and stealing of government funds.

According to the Nation after a four-day grilling during which she was in custody of the anti-graft agency beginning from August 8, Mrs Oyo-Ita landed in the hospital after being granted administrative bail. She has been given restricted access to visitors at the private hospital in Jabi area of Abuja where she is receiving treatment.

Although the administrative bail was granted so that she could be reporting for further interrogation from her office, she has not been able to return to the anti-corruption agency’s office since she was allowed to go.

About N600million has been traced to the account of one of her key aides who has been unable to give any justifiable explanation for it.
Southern, Middle Belt leaders berate PDP BOT chair on RUGA.

The EFCC has blocked the account and has initiated the process of obtaining an interim forfeiture clause to seize the cash.

Preliminary findings confirmed that about N3billion has been traced to the Head of Service which came in through proxy companies.

Detectives, it was gathered, uncovered slush funds linked to the Head of Service while probing the activities of a former Minister under who she served as Permanent Secretary.

A source said: “Preliminary investigation confirmed that she used different fronts or cronies to obtain contracts from Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs)

“While tracing embezzlement by the ex-Minister, detectives stumbled on diversion of funds into proxy companies which the Head of Service has relationship with.

“The startling revelations made detectives to dig further into her activities as a Permanent Secretary and Head of Service.

“There were proofs of how she secured contracts through proxy firms from some ministries including Special Duties, Power, Works and others. There was a case of abuse of office because there was evidence of pressure on Permanent Secretaries to get her contracts. She moved from one ministry to the other.

“Investigators also discovered that she was involved in falsification of Duty Tour Allowance (DTA) and estacodes

The source added: “About N600million has been traced to the account of one of her aides. This illicit account has been blocked and the EFCC is in the process of invoking interim forfeiture clause.”

Sections 28 and 34 of the EFCC (Establishment Act) 2004 and Section 13(1) of the Federal High Court Act, 2004 empower the anti-graft agency to apply Interim Assets Forfeiture Clause.

“Section 28 of the EFCC Act reads: “Where a person is arrested for an offence under this Act, the Commission shall immediately trace and attach all the assets and properties of the person acquired as a result of such economic or financial crime and shall thereafter cause to be obtained an interim attachment order from the court.”

Another source said: ”We have only covered a fraction of the preliminary findings, she will still have to return after completing her treatment.”

But there was a pall of silence in government circle because of the sensitive nature of the EFCC’s findings.

Top government officials, who were aware of the grilling, kept mute in anticipation of a soft landing for the head of service.

But going by precedent, she is likely to be suspended from office by President Muhammadu Buhari, pending the outcome of the ongoing investigation.

A source added: “Although she is a former official of the defunct Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) where she worked under President Muhammadu Buhari, the law will take its course if she is indicted by EFCC.

A brief on the Head of Service on the website of the Public Service Institute of Nigeria reads: “Winifred has an impressive and well-documented work experience spanning over 30 years, including being the first female indigenous Managing Director/CEO of Cross River Estates Limited, between 1993 and 1995.

“She later transferred her service to the federal civil service where she was appointed to the rank of Assistant director in July, 1997 and rose to the position of a director, Finance and Accounts in January, 2009 in the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation.

“Mrs. Oyo-Ita Winifred was appointed to the position of Federal Permanent Secretary on the 16th of March, 2013 and posted to the Federal Ministry of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs as the pioneer Permanent Secretary of the re-established Ministry.

“She was redeployed to the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology in April, 2014. She was appointed as the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation in acting capacity in October 2015 and confirmed in January 2016 by President Muhammadu Buhari.”
