BUSINESS LIQUIDATION

812774 | 2022-11-26016

General
HELLO TFANS! The Business and Marketing World has numerous ups and downs involved in it. If one wants to start a business, he must be ready to accept the fact that there are good days and there are also bad days. Today, we would be discussing the topic ‘BANKRUPTCY’ According to Investopedia, Liquidation is the process of bringing a business to an end and distributing its assets to claimants, which occurs when a company becomes insolvent.Bankruptcy is a legal process that involves a person or company that is unable to pay its debts. Liquidation can allow you a fresh start, but it will stay on your credit reports for a number of years and make it difficult to borrow in the future. Liquidationallows an organization to start over by forgiving debts that are simply unpayable and allowing creditors the opportunity to get some kind of payback depending on the assets available for liquidation. In theory, the opportunity to file for bankruptcy promotes the general economy by enabling people and businesses a second chance at credit and by allowing creditors to get a share of debt repayment. The debtor gets released of the debt obligations incurred previous to filing for bankruptcy when the bankruptcy processes are successfully completed. HOW TO AVOID LIQUIDATION Whether your company or business is on the verge of liquidation or bankruptcy, you're certainly eager to avoid it. Here are some suggestions for dealing with a financial crisis head-on so you can save your sinking ship. 1. Make paying off debt a top priority. Bankruptcies are caused by unpaid debt, thus repaying payments should be the primary priority. Examine all of your accounts, paying close attention to how much you owe and to whom you owe it. From here, you can prioritize and pay off the most crucial expenses first. It's always a good idea to pay off high-interest accounts first, as they'll cost you more money in the long run. Unpaid tax payments should also be prioritized because you don't want to offend HMRC. 2. Cut out all non-essential spending. The next step is to examine your business expenses in the same manner. Are there any areas where you may save money? Perhaps you're covering the cost of company lunches or organizing high-profile events. Is it possible that company cars may be substituted with less expensive public transportation? Is it necessary for your executives to join a gym? Cutting costs isn't fun, but anything that isn't absolutely necessary should be reduced from your budget until your debts are paid off. 3. Re-negotiate your repayment schedule. Creditors may be more receptive to working with you than you think. Take the initiative and call your suppliers to see if you can renegotiate payment conditions. It's not a bad idea to be both clear and honest, because most lenders would prefer to receive a cheaper monthly payment. 4. 4. Dispose of non-core business assets. It's time to inventory all of your business assets, just as you did with non-essential spending. Are there any that you just use once in a while or never at all? You may, for example, have a copy machine that is rarely used since you scan all of your documents. Perhaps you have a large parking lot where certain spaces could be rented out for a fee. Look for areas where you may downsize and potentially earn more money to cover your bills. 5. Increase your revenue streams as much as possible. In the same vein, you should be looking for strategies to increase your earnings. For some people, this may imply taking up a second job. Looking at methods to broaden your brand's clout to benefit the firm as a whole could be a good place to start. 6. Create a new business plan.Finally, use this time of change to switch up your business plan going forward. Your business plan should always be a working document rather than set in stone, and if you’re facing liquidation you know it’s worth an edit.Preventing liquidation won’t happen overnight; it’s a long process that requires a total rethink of your relationship with money. Whether or not you succeed, it’s worth closely analysing what went wrong to make sure your next business stays afloat. Read all >>

IMPORTANT THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE YOU "JAPA"

PresidentSan | 2022-11-24017

Hello-TfansJapa has become a common language of the average Nigerian. Since the country, riddled with bad leadership, continued to show her citizens different shades of shege. The best bet is to find another place, where the grass is at least a bit greener. If you know how many people apply for visa monthly, you would wonder how there's still anyone left in the country. Not even students are left out. The Asuu- FG annual carnival has forced many to give up all hopes of education in Nigeria, causing the country a loss of more than $20 billion annually to universities abroad. So sad we have to leave our mother's land, just in search of what she's supposedly blessed to provide for us with ease. While Japa might be a way out, it's not always as rosy as many think. Here are a few things you need to know before you consider to Japa. 1) It's not an automatic ticket to the promise land: Money doesn't rain down abroad, you have to work for it. All your sufferings won't end as soon as you alight from the plane. It's going to take a while, and you may have to put up with some struggles at first, before you finally adapt. 2) Prepare your accomodations ahead: Get every plan about your accomodations sorted before you leave for your destination. You don't want to get to the airport and be stranded. There's no room for aimlessly toiling around. Be sure of where and who you are staying with, and be certain they are willing to put up with you and take care of your bills before you find your balance. 3) It can be lonely out there: You can't find the hospitality of Nigeria everywhere you go. You may already be used to a community where everyone is their brothers keeper, where you don't have to know your neighbor up close, before you walk up to their compound to ask if they could spare some vegetables from their garden. Out there, you are on your own, and friendship may not be as closely defined. 4) Post graduate studies abroad is not a walk in the park: If you're planning to japa for the purpose of education, don't be deceived by the false knowledge that Nigeria is the only place where school is hard. You would have to get serious to truly graduate with a good result, and sometimes it takes sleepless nights. Read all >>

Hello T-Fans, Another episode on History. Today, we'd be talking on how the country was named. We all know the colonization process that took place in Nigeria many decades back, it changed its culture, way of thinking, and every other thing. It also brought about civilization. One of which the whole territory was named -Nigeria. History has it that it was coined by the wife of the then Governor-General (Lord Lugard). Her name is "Flora Shaw," who later got married and became "Flora Lugard. She came up with the naming after several look at the country with the observation that it is a beautiful country with human and natural resources and capability. Also, it has several oceans, rivers, seas, one of which is the River Niger. Nigeria was then coined from the word "Niger Area." NIGERIA TODAY After the independence, Nigeria has had it's development in several areas, such as Foreign trade on her own, development of industries, intelligent minds, creation of many sectors in the economy, and several others that contributes to the growth of the economy at large. Also, news has had it that there is the new printed currency in the country. How do you think this contributes to the economy? Does it have an adverse effect? Please keep checking our page as we make justice to these questions in the point view of Economics. Trust you had a great read? Read all >>

ALL THE OLD KNIVES (2022)

Stories
HELLO TFANS, In early 2020, CIA officer Henry Pelham is informed by his boss, Vick Wallinger, that the CIA has reopened the case of Turkish Alliance 127, a 2012 terrorist hijacking which ended in tragedy. Headquarters suspects there was a leak from the Vienna station, where Henry and Vick work. Henry is sent to interview Celia Harrison, who also worked at the Vienna station at the time of the hijacking. Henry and Celia were lovers, but she left him shortly after the event. Celia, now retired, lives in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California with her family. Henry meets her at an upscale restaurant, which is almost empty of customers and staff. As Henry and Celia talk, she reveals that an Austrian intelligence agent named Karl Stein approached her shortly after she moved to Carmel. He wanted her to inform on her coworkers, but she refused. Henry has Celia recall the events of the hijacking. In a flashback to 2012, Flight 127 is on the runway when it is hijacked by four armed militants belonging to an Islamic terrorist group. The Vienna station jumps into action to address the crisis and learns that Ilyas Shushani, a Chechen and former informant for Henry, may be involved. The hijackers threaten to kill the passengers unless several of their comrades are released from custody. Ahmed, a CIA courier who happened to be on the plane, contacts the CIA and suggests an attack via the plane's undercarriage. Celia connects with a possible source named Mohammed, but the meeting seems to yield nothing of value. Henry tells Celia and her mentor, Bill Compton, that when Henry worked in Moscow his superiors forced him to betray Ilyas to the Russian government as a trade-off for intel on an imminent attack on a U.S. embassy. The Vienna station receives another message from Ahmed saying that the terrorists have a camera mounted on the plane's undercarriage and the assault should be called off. Celia notices differences in the language of Ahmed's messages and fears he has been compromised. Checking the station's phone logs, she notices that a call to Iran was placed from Bill's office phone. Then Ahmed is killed and thrown off the plane. The next day, Celia leaves both Henry and Vienna. In the present, Henry asks why she ended their relationship so abruptly. Celia reveals that she saw a call on Henry's cellphone from the same Iranian number that she found in the station phone logs. It is revealed that when the terrorists' demands were not met, they released sarin gas, killing themselves, the crew, and all passengers. The Vienna station is devastated by the outcome. Realizing that Henry was the leak, she left him but did not divulge her discovery to the CIA. She further confesses that, after Henry contacted her to arrange this meeting, she contacted Karl Stein, and he arranged the meeting place, the staff, and fake customers, with the aim of poisoning Henry via his wine. As Henry begins to succumb to the poison, Celia tearfully asks why he betrayed everyone to the terrorists. He explains that he was lured into a meeting with Ilyas, who had become radicalized and masterminded the hijacking. Ilyas' people staged the meeting between Mohammed and Celia to create the impression that Celia's life was in danger. This pushed Henry into revealing the presence of Ahmed on the plane, as well as the plan for an undercarriage assault in exchange for her life. Henry comes to terms with his impending death, and Celia returns home to her husband and children. Karl calls Vick to report that Henry has died, revealing that they had been working together the entire time. SOURCE Read all >>

COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY

Hello T-Fans, In modern day life, computers and electronics have a huge impact on everything from communication and medical to science. Despite the common misconception that computers are a recent innovation using electronics, computing predates the usage of electrical apparatus. The abacus, which dates back to ancient times, was possibly the earliest computing device. Since the earliest known complex of analogue computing devices, the Antikythera mechanism, was used by the ancient Greeks and Romans, analogue computing has a long history. Other early mechanical analogue computers include the slide rule (about 1624), the castle clock (1206), and Babbage's Difference Engine (1822). Due to the development of electric power in the 19th century, both digital and analogue calculations could be performed using electrical and hybrid electro-mechanical equipment, such as the Hollerith punch-card machine and Bush's differential analyzer. This technology was used to create telephone switching, which in turn sparked the creation of the first computers as we know them today. The theory underlying electrical devices was introduced with the Edison Effect in 1885. Electronic components, which were first in the form of vacuum tubes, were quickly incorporated into electric equipment, changing radio and later television. However, the full impact of electronics was only felt in computers. The Colossus and the ENIAC, two of the earliest electrical digital computers, were created during World War II. Analog computers used to calculate ballistics were important to the outcome of the conflict. Computers would became much smaller as a result of the development of solid-state electronics, the transistor, and ultimately, the integrated circuit, making them eventually accessible to the average customer. These days, "computers" are found in almost all facets of daily life, from watches to automobiles. Basic Applications of Computer Technology Computers are used in all aspects of life. They are employed in a variety of settings, including residences, businesses, academic and research institutions, healthcare facilities, and entertainment venues. Medical Field - In hospitals, computers are used to keep a database of patient information, including their medical history, diagnoses, X-rays, and real-time patient monitoring. Today's surgeons do remote procedures and delicate operations using robotic surgical tools. Technologies related to virtual reality are also applied to training. Monitoring the developing foetus inside the mother's womb is also helpful. Industry - Computers are utilised in many different businesses for functions including inventory management, designing, making virtual samples of products, interior design, video conferencing, etc. The potential of online marketing to offer diverse products to hard-to-reach places like interior or rural areas has undergone a significant revolution. Through the use of computers, stock markets have witnessed amazing engagement from individuals at all levels. Government - Computers are employed in the government to handle data, keep a database of citizens, and enable a paperless workplace. The employment of computers by the nation's defence institutions for the development of missiles, satellites, rocket launches, etc. has been extremely advantageous. Homes - Computers are used in homes for a variety of activities, including online bill payment, home entertainment, home learning, access to social media, gaming, and internet. They offer email as a means of communication. They support offering corporate employees the option of working from home. The student population can access online instructional support with the aid of computers. Entertainment - Computers provide virtual entertainment by allowing users to play games, watch movies online, and listen to music, among other activities. People working in the entertainment sector can record music using artificial instruments with the use of MIDI instruments. Computers are capable of feeding videos to large-screen televisions. There are wonderful features in photo editors. Banking - Computers are utilised in the banking industry to store customer information and carry out operations like ATM withdrawal and deposit. Banks now use computers a lot more, which has greatly reduced manual errors and costs. Education - Computers are utilised in the education sector for things like online classrooms, exams, reading e-books, and tutoring. They support greater use of audiovisual resources in the educational sector. Science and Engineering - High-performance computers are employed in science and engineering to encourage dynamic processes. There are several uses for supercomputers in the field of research and development (R&D). Computers can generate topographic imagery. Computers are used by scientists to plot and analyse data in order to better comprehend earthquakes. Read all >>

Science
Hello T-Fans, Today, we would like you to have an insight into Mechanical Technology. In previous threads, we have discussed Technology and the various types of Technology in the world we live and today we will be enlightening on one of these types. WHAT IS MECHANICAL TECHNOLOGY? Mechanical technologies apply mechanical engineering principles to designing, operating and testing machines and equipment. Mechanical Engineering Technology deals with the combination of technological developments with engineering principles to improve the manufacturing process and come up with better designs for mechanical systems. In contrast to a standard engineering degree, a mechanical engineering technology programme will give you opportunities for a more practical education. You will spend less time on arithmetic and more time applying the principles you study in your classes. Mechanical engineer technologists concentrate on putting ideas into practise, in contrast to mechanical engineers who are very design and theory-oriented. Applications of Mechanical Technology. Mechanical Engineering Technology is being used in various ways. Some of these are explained below: ROBOTICS - This aspect of computer science and engineering crosses several disciplinary boundaries. It involves the creation, maintenance, use, and operation of robots. The objective is to create devices that can aid and support people. These devices can be created in any shape, but some of them are even designed to seem like people. AUTOMOBILE ENGINEERING - Focuses on creating, producing, and operating automobiles. It is a branch of vehicle engineering that deals with things like trucks, buses, and motorcycles. Additionally, it has safety, software, electrical, mechanical, and electronic components. MECHATRONICS - Engineering that integrates mechanical, electronic, and electrical engineering systems is known as mechatronics engineering, and it also combines robotics, electronics, computer science, telecommunications, systems, control, and support. Artificial intelligence, design engineering, applied mechanics, and other fields are examples of other implementations of mechanical technology. Career Options in Mechanical Technology. Professionals in mechanical technology work for utility corporations, engineering firms, and industrial development labs. They might also work in the manufacturing, building, car, and aerospace sectors. For instance, you might work on the design and development of vehicles, power systems, heating and cooling systems, or aeroplanes. You might also be qualified for a job as a mechanical drafter or engineering assistant, depending on your interests and abilities. Read all >>

TSPOT HEALTH NG | 2022-11-23024

Health
Hello Tfans, Tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils, two oval-shaped pads of tissue at the back of the throat — one tonsil on each side. Signs and symptoms of tonsillitis include swollen tonsils, Sore throat, difficulty swallowing and tender lymph nodes on the sides of the neck. Most cases of tonsillitis are caused by infection with a common virus, but bacterial infections also may cause tonsillitis. Because appropriate treatment for tonsillitis depends on the cause, it's important to get a prompt and accurate diagnosis. Surgery to remove tonsils, once a common procedure to treat tonsillitis, is usually performed only when tonsillitis occurs frequently, doesn't respond to other treatments or causes serious complications. SYMPTOMS Tonsillitis most commonly affects children between preschool ages and the mid-teenage years. Common signs and symptoms of tonsillitis include: Red, swollen tonsils White or yellow coating or patches on the tonsils Sore throat Difficult or painful swallowing Fever Enlarged, tender glands (lymph nodes) in the neck A scratchy, muffled or throaty voice Bad breath Stomachache, particularly in younger children Stiff neck Headache In young children who are unable to describe how they feel, signs of tonsillitis may include: Drooling due to difficult or painful swallowing Refusal to eat Unusual fussiness When to see a doctor It's important to get an accurate diagnosis if your child has symptoms that may indicate tonsillitis. RISK FACTORS Risk factors for tonsillitis include: Young age. Tonsillitis is most common from the preschool years to the mid-teenage years. Frequent exposure to germs. School-age children are in close contact with their peers and frequently exposed to viruses or bacteria that can cause tonsillitis. COMPLICATIONS Inflammation or swelling of the tonsils from frequent or ongoing (chronic) tonsillitis can cause complications such as: Difficulty breathing Disrupted breathing during sleep (obstructive Sleep apnea) Infection that spreads deep into surrounding tissue (tonsillar Cellulitis) Infection that results in a collection of pus behind a tonsil (tonsillar abscess) Strep infection If tonsillitis caused by group A streptococcus or another strain of streptococcal bacteria isn't treated, or if antibiotic treatment is incomplete, your child has an increased risk of rare disorders such as: Rheumatic fever, an inflammatory disorder that affects the heart, joints and other tissues Post-streptococcal Glomerulonephritis, an inflammatory disorder of the kidneys that results in inadequate removal of waste and excess Fluids from blood. TREATMENTS AND DRUGS At-home care Whether tonsillitis is caused by a viral or bacterial infection, at-home care strategies can make your child more comfortable and promote better recovery. If a virus is the expected cause of tonsillitis, these strategies are the only treatment. Your doctor won't prescribe antibiotics. Your child will likely be better within seven to 10 days. At-home care strategies to use during the recovery time include the following: Encourage rest. Encourage your child to get plenty of sleep and to rest his or her voice. Provide adequate Fluids. Give your child plenty of water to keep the throat moist and prevent Dehydration. Provide comforting foods and beverage. Warm liquids — broth, caffeine-free tea or warm water with honey — and cold treats like ice pops can soothe a Sore throat. Prepare a saltwater gargle. If your child can gargle, a saltwater gargle of 1 teaspoon (5 milliliters) of table salt to 8 ounces (237 milliliters) of warm water can help soothe a Sore throat. Have your Ichild gargle the solution and then spit it out. Humidify the air. Use a cool-air humidifier to eliminate dry air that may further irritate a Sore throat, or sit with your child for several minutes in a steamy bathroom. Offer lozenges. Children older than age 4 can suck on lozenges to relieve a Sore throat. Avoid irritants. Keep your home free from cigarette smoke and cleaning products that can irritate the throat. Treat pain and Fever. Talk to your doctor about using ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) or acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) to minimize throat pain and control a Fever. Use caution when giving aspirin to children or teenagers. Though aspirin is approved for use in children older than age 2, children and teenagers recovering from Chickenpox or Flu-like symptoms should never take aspirin. This is because aspirin has been linked to Reye's syndrome, a rare but potentially life-threatening condition, in such children. Antibiotics If tonsillitis is caused by a bacterial infection, your doctor will prescribe a course of antibiotics. Penicillin taken by mouth for 10 days is the most common antibiotic treatment prescribed for tonsillitis caused by group A streptococcus. If your child is allergic to penicillin, your doctor will prescribe an alternative antibiotic. Your child must take the full course of antibiotics as prescribed even if the symptoms go away completely. Failure to take all of the medication as directed may result in the infection worsening or spreading to other parts of the body. Not completing the full course of antibiotics can, in particular, increase your child's risk of Rheumatic fever and serious kidney inflammation. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about what to do if you forget to give your child a dose. Surgery Surgery to remove tonsils (tonsillectomy) may be used to treat frequently recurring tonsillitis, chronic tonsillitis or bacterial tonsillitis that doesn't respond to antibiotic treatment. Frequent tonsillitis is generally defined as: More than seven episodes in one year. More than five episodes a year in each of the preceding two years. More than three episodes a year in each of the preceding three years. A tonsillectomy may also be performed if tonsillitis results in difficult-to-manage complications, such as: Obstructive Sleep apnea. Breathing difficulty. Swallowing difficulty, especially meats and other chunky foods. An abscess that doesn't improve with antibiotic treatment. Tonsillectomy is usually done as a one-day surgery, unless your child is very young. That means your child should be able to go home the day of the surgery. A complete recovery usually takes seven to 14 days. LIFESTYLE AND HOME REMEDIES The germs that cause viral and bacterial tonsillitis are contagious. Therefore, the best prevention is to practice good hygiene. Teach your child to: Wash his or her hands thoroughly and frequently, especially after using the toilet and before eating. Avoid sharing food, drinking glasses or utensils. To help your child prevent the spread of a bacterial or viral infection to others:. Keep your child at home when he or she is ill. Ask your doctor when it's all right for your child to return to school. Teach your child to cough or sneeze into a tissue or, when necessary, into his or her elbow. Teach your child to wash his or her hands after sneezing or coughing Read all >>

Hello T-Fans, Leadership training involves the process in learning so manyattributes a leadership should possess. About two weeks ago, Leadership qualities where we spoke on the principles a ledear/representative should possess, skills (which includes inter-personal, trainings -physical and soft, a good sense of humor, being determined to give out excellent service, optimism, compassion, being approachable, A.I, E.I, and lots more. Today's discussion won't deviate from the earlier discussed topic but would emphasize more on it. Leadership can be learnt. It doesn't come freely and some are natural expert at it that it excludes others. No!. Look through our previous topic and check the skills and principles. Be knowledgeable. You can't give out what you don't have. You won't be able to dish out instructions if you haven't found a way out already. Please note that those you govern over are looking out for instructions from you. On the other hand, everyone is knowledgeable, everyone has senses to think, and everyone has emotions. They'd obviously question if it's not inline with the stated course of the association/organization. While dishing out instructions, make it as much as possible to be inline with the earlier stated goal. Try every possible best to do this leadership thing effortlessly and get the dignity and accolades that comes with it! Trust you had a great read? Read all >>
