TECNO SPOT NG | 2022-08-12737

Camon 19 series
Hello T-fans. Giving you more room for customization, putting control of almost everything that says Android in your hands, HiOS 8.6 on CAMON 19 comes with options that allows you give a personal touch to how apps look on your device screen including icon size. If you’ve been on Android for long, you would know that this was a miracle for a lot of users when we made it available. In the past, Android users were stuck with default icon size that may appear too large or too small (according to individual interpretation) and may want them bigger so as to see them better when scrolling through their app drawer or may prefer them smaller in order to fit the screen better. Identifying this as a problem that also places mobile users in a situation where they are forced to swallow whatever pill is forced down their throat by app developers, we’ve shifted control of these to the hands of end users on all our recent devices, the CAMON 19 inclusive. To resize app icon to your preference on the CAMON 19, long press on your device home screen. Tap on ‘desktop setting’ and on the next page, tap on ‘icon size’. Use the slider to adjust app icon to whatever size of your choice from 80%-120%. Do you own a CAMON 19 or hoping to get one soon?

BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY

Lil'Jay | 2022-08-0902

Science
Hello T-Fans, You must have heard the phrase "blockchain technology" frequently during the last several years, usually in reference to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. You might even be wondering, "What is blockchain technology?" As there is no concrete meaning that the average person can readily understand, it appears that blockchain is a platitude, but only in a hypothetical sense. It is essential to provide an explanation of "what is blockchain technology," including the technology involved, how it functions, and how it is becoming important in the digital sphere. You will find out how to respond to the question "what is blockchain technology?" in this thread. Additionally, you will discover how blockchain functions, why it's significant, and how you may use this area of study to advance your profession. What is Blockchain? Blockchain is a decentralised, immutable database that makes it easier to track assets and record transactions in a corporate network. Blockchain is a technique for storing data that makes it difficult or impossible for the system to be altered, hacked, or otherwise abused. A blockchain is a type of distributed ledger that distributes and copies transactions among the network of computers involved. What is Blockchain Technology?Blockchain technology is a framework for storing public transactional records (sometimes referred toa s "blocks") across multiple databases in a network connected by peer-to-peer nodes. This type of storage is frequently referred to as a"digital ledger." Every transaction in this ledger is validated and protected against fraud by the owner's digital signature, which also serves to authenticate the transaction. As a result, the data in the digital ledger is quite safe. How Blockchain Technology Works.You may have observed that several businesses have been incorporating Blockchain technology in recent years. But how does Blockchain technology operate? Is this a substantial modification or merely an addition? Let's start with unravelling Blockchain technology since it is still in its inception and has the potential to be revolutionary in the future. Blockchain is a combination of three leading technologies: Cryptographic keys.A peer-to-peer network containing a shared ledger.A means of computing, to store the transactions and records of the network. Two keys make up a cryptography key: private and public keys. These keys aid in the execution of successful transactions involving two parties. These two keys are unique to each person and are used to create a secure digital identity reference. The most significant component of Blockchain technology is this protected identification. This identity is known as a "digital signature" in the realm of cryptocurrencies and is used to approve and manage transactions. The peer-to-peer network and the digital signature are combined; many people who serve as authorities use the digital signature to agree on transactions and othermatters. As soon as they approve a transaction, it is mathematically verified to ensure that it is valid, which leads to a successful secured transaction between the two network-connected parties. In conclusion, cryptography keys are used by Blockchain users to conduct various kinds of digital exchanges across the peer-to-peer network. Types of Blockchain.There are four different types of Blockchains and they are as follows: Private Blockchain Networks - On closed networks, private blockchains function well for private corporations and organisations. Private blockchains allow businesses to set network characteristics, accessibility and permission choices, and other crucial security features. A private blockchain network is controlled by a single authority. Public Blockchain Networks - Public blockchains, which were the source of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, also helped spread awareness of distributed ledger technology (DLT). Public blockchains also aid in removing some difficulties and problems, including centralization and security weaknesses. Other than being kept in one place, data is spread throughout a peer-to-peer network using DLT. The legitimacy of information is verified by a consensus algorithm; proof of stake (PoS) and proof of work (PoW) are two popular consensus techniques. Permissioned Blockchain Networks - Permissioned blockchain networks, sometimes referred to as hybrid blockchains, are private blockchains that grant approved users exclusive access. These kinds of blockchains are frequently set up by businesses to achieve the best of both worlds. They provide better structure when determining who can join the network and what transactions. Consortium Blockchain Networks - Similar to permissioned blockchains, consortium blockchains feature both public and private components; however, a single consortium blockchain network will be managed by numerous companies. Though initially more difficult to setup, these blockchains can provide superior security once they are operational. Consortia blockchains are also the best for working with various organisations. Advantages of Blockchain Technology Blockchains can protect and secure sensitive data from online transactions thanks to their high level of security, which is one of their main advantages. Blockchain technology also provides quick and convenient transactions for those who desire them. In contrast to other transaction techniques, which can take several days to complete, it actually only takes a few minutes. Additionally, there is no third-party involvement from governmental or financial entities, which many users view as a positive. Disadvantages of Blockchain Technology Public and private keys are used in cryptography and blockchain, and reportedly, private keys have caused issues. One drawback of blockchains is that if a user misplaces their private key, they are faced with a number of difficulties. The limitations on scaling that result from the cap on transactions per node are another drawback. As a result, completing many transactions and other chores can take several hours. Another important drawback of blockchain is that information can be hard to add or change once it has been recorded. Read all >>

A NEW DAWN FOR NIGERIAN FEMALE ATHLETES

Joshuaboy | 2022-08-1015

Others
HELLO T-FANS, Nigeria's male athletes appear to have taken a backseat in today's sports, allowing the female athletes to take center stage. Male competitors are no longer the dominant force they once were in major sporting competitions, from football to athletics. Nigerian women have garnered more accolades for the nation than their male counterparts this year, making national headlines even before the just concluded WorldAthletics Championships in Oregon, where Nigeria made history by winning her first-ever gold medal, women had been the dominant athletes, leaving the male as ‘bystanders' • The Super Eagles failed to advance to Qatar while the Super Falcons qualified for the 2023 World Cup. • The Falconets (U20) earned a spot at the World Cup being held in Costa Rica • The Flamingoes (U17) qualified for the World Cup in India. • Asisat Oshoala won African Best player award for the fifth time. No Nigerian male player was among the top list at the CAF Award held in Morocco last week. • Rasheedat Ajibade was named joint top scorer at WAFCON. • Mimisen Iyorhe Onwuka officiated at the WAFCON final in Morocco and wasthe only Nigerian referee selected for the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup. • Ndidi Madu was the first Nigerian referee (male or female) to use the VAR when she officiated at the WAFCON in Morocco. • Sprint hurdler, Tobi Amusan, set a world record and became the first Nigerian to win a gold medal at Oregon 2022. • Ese Brume became the first Nigerian athlete (male or female) to win two medals in the World Championship when she won a silver at Oregon 2022. • After the men crashed out of the heat event at Oregon 2022, Nigerian women’s 4×100 relay team set an African record. • At the just concluded Commonwealth Games, Nigerian female athletesoutperformed their male colleagues by clinching all of the country’s 12 gold medals representing its best performance ever. • After winning gold at the World Athletics championships in Oregon, USA, last month, and the 22nd African Athletics championships in Mauritius in June, Amusan has now become the only Nigerian athlete in history to complete a grand slam of titles at the continental, Commonwealth, and world levels. The list goes on and on and the gap seems to be widening on daily basis. Team Nigeria amassed 12 Gold, 9 silver and 14 bronze, a total of 35 medals at the end of the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. Nigeria’s largest gold medal haul since the games began in 1950. All gold medals came from the females, the gold medalists include Rosemary Chukwuma, Eucharia Njideka Iyiazi, Goodness Chiemerie Nwachukwu, Ese Brume, Nzubechi Grace Nwokocha, Favour Ofili, Chioma Onyekwere, Amusan Tobi, Joy Chinenye Uno Gabriel, Alice Folashade Oluwafemiayo, Rafiatu Folashade Lawal, Adijat Adenike Olarinoye, Odunayo Folashade Adekuroye, Miesinnei Mercy Genesis, and Blessing Oborududu. They won medals across board, from Weightlifting,Discus Throw to Freestyle Wrestling, Para-Athletics and Powerlifting, among other sports. These fourteen athletes have imprinted their names in history, and have garnered nationwide admiration, including special praise from The President. In Nigeria, women are largely seen as the "weaker sex" but the situation appears to have changed when it comes to sporting events. Men in Nigeria are currently the ones giving way to female athletes and players. At international competitions, few men ascend the podium to receive medals. The female athletes are still set to do more, can the men matchup, take up the challenge and do us proud as well? Read all >>

OVEN MAINTENANCE TRICKS

Simileoluwa445 | 2022-08-1005

Tips and Tricks
HELLO T-FANS, Welcome to today's session, today's post is about a major kitchen appliance called oven. An oven is one important and useful appliance found in most kitchens. Ovens need to be in the best conditions so as to get the best use out of them. Below are useful tips to ensure your oven stays in good shape. 1. MAKE USE OF YOUR OVEN'S SELF-FEATURES : Most ovens have these, but very few people are familiar with how it works. Read your manual or contact the manufacturer. Be sure to wipe down the inside of the oven after it cools down. And, whatever you do, never start the self-cleaning feature and leave home. Manuals are one thing that shouldn't be overlook, there's a lot in there to help guide you in making the best out of your oven. 2. CLEAN YOUR OVEN REGULARLY: Experts say that you should give your oven a thorough cleaning at least twice each year. Of course, if you use it daily, you may want to increase that cleaning routine to, say, every couple of months. Leaving burnt food to continue to re-burn with every use will eventually cause your oven to work less efficiently. Not to mention that the continuous smell of burnt food every time you use it will eventually start affecting the taste of your new meal. Every appliances needs it own cleaning, so also does an oven. 3.DON'T REMOVE YOUR OVEN'S KNOB: These knobs are directly connected to your oven’s control system. When you remove them to spray cleaner on them, you are actually putting yourself at risk of electrocution. As tempting as it is to clean them this way, don’t. Leave your knobs right where they are. 4. INSPECT AND REPLACE YOUR GAS LINE: Every time you purchase a new oven, you should always update your gas line, too. It seems like a logical thing to do, right? After all, a fresh line means less chance of a leak down the road. But, here’s the thing – what if you have invested in a well-working oven and you don’t plan on upgrading anytime soon? If you have had your oven for a while, you may want to take the time to inspect the line. If it looks at all worn, replace it. 5. CHECK YOUR ELEMENT (BURNERS) REGULARLY: If you see any debris on it, any deformities, or a spot that glows a little bit brighter than the rest, you are going to want to replace it. It can spark and create a flame as it shorts out. Generally, it’s a rather minor issue. However, it can result in heavy damage to the appliance. As soon as you notice this, stop using your oven and replace the burner/element. Thanks for reading. Read all >>

THE FIVE SECOND RULE by MEL ROBBINS

sirsmallz | 2022-08-08033

Stories
HELLO TFANS, “The 5 Second Rule is a simple tool that undercuts most of the psychological weapons your brain employs to keep you from taking action, which will allow you to procrastinate less, live happier and reach your goals.” Years ago, CNN contributor, world-famous speaker and bestselling author Mel Robbins discovered one little trick that changed her life for the better when she hit rock bottom. The Rule is a simple, research-based metacognition tool that creates immediate and lasting behavior change. Metacognition, by the way, is just a fancy word for any technique that allows you to push your brain in order to accomplish your greater goals. The reality is there is generally just a 5 second window of opportunity between having a great thought about something productive you should do and your brain starting to come up with excuses for why you cannot do that. That's the time when you have to step up and take action or your doubts will crowd out that desire forever more. Change your life and your career for the better five seconds at a time. "It takes just five seconds to change your life. Sounds like a gimmick, doesn’t it? It’s not. It’s science. I’ll prove it to you. You change your life one five-second decision at a time. In fact, it’s the only way you change. The 5 Second Rule has transformed the lives of people around the world. The Rule is easy to learn and its impact is profound. It's the secret to changing anything. Once you learn the Rule, you can start using it immediately. The Rule will help you live, love, work, and speak with greater confidence and courage every day. It wakes up the inner genius, leader, rock star, athlete, artist, and change agent inside of you." – Mel Robbins This book consists of many true life stories of people who have benefited from using the rule and demonstrated how this rule is grounded in science. The 5 Second rule can be used in a variety of situations. It assists people overcome challenges and accomplish goals. The book cites relevant instances on how to use the rule and portrays the effectiveness of the rule in those situations. The 5 second rule works only by counting backwards from five to one and then taking action. If you are wondering why it cannot work counting forward; the answer is, when counting forward, you won’t stop counting after 5, but when counting backwards, after the number one, there is absolutely nowhere to go and that in turn requires prompt action. It helps people take the right course of action, instead of procrastinating or getting distracted by worry. By using this rule, people can gain courage and confidence to accomplish goals. It is a powerful tool that, with some effort, can help them change their lives for the better. 3 MAJOR THINGS THIS RULE WILL HELP YOU WITH; 1. HELPS BUILD CONFIDENCE The 5-second rule is a way to stop the brain from being distracted by excuses and worry, and instead concentrate on the task at hand. It’s like forming a new habit, which raises confidence and encourages greater effort. 2. UNLEASHES COURAGE The great thing about the 5 Second Rule is it unleashes the courage which already lies within you. If you have the courage to do what you think every day, you'll be amazed at what you can achieve. If you use the Rule to take action whenever you face challengingcircumstances in your life or career, you'll be surprised at how many opportunities for growth you unlock. 3. BREAKS BAD MENTAL HABITS The 5 Second Rule can also be used to break the mental habits of anxiety, worry and fear. By using the Rule to change the way you think, you can change the way you act and ultimately become more optimistic and confident. The 5 Second Rule gets your mindworking for you instead of against you. SOURCE Read all >>

THE GRAY MAN (2022)

sirsmallz | 2022-08-06037

Stories
HELLO TFANS, The Gray Man is a 2022 American action thriller film directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. In 2003, senior CIA official Donald Fitzroy visits a prisoner. Eight years earlier the prisoner was a minor convicted of killing his abusive father to protect his brother. Fitzroy offers the man his freedom in exchange for working as an assassin in the CIA's Sierraprogram. In 2021, on a mission in Bangkok, the murderer, "Sierra Six," is working with fellow CIA agent Dani Miranda to assassinate a target suspected of selling off national security secrets. He is unable to do so stealthily without harming civilians and attacks the target directly, mortally wounding him. Before dying, the target reveals that he worked in the Sierra program as Sierra Four, and hands Six an encrypted drive detailing the corruption of CIA official Denny Carmichael, who is the lead agent on the assassination mission. Carmichael is elusive about the true purpose of the mission and the contents of the drive when confronted by Six, and Six refuses evacuation from Bangkok with Carmichael's men, calling a now-retired Fitzroy to request extraction. Carmichael hires mercenary Lloyd Hansen, a former CIA agent kicked out of the agency for his sociopathic tendencies, to track down Six and retrieve the drive. Hansen does so by kidnapping Fitzroy's niece Claire, forcing Fitzroy to authorize Six's murder by the extraction team. However, Six kills them and escapes. Frustrated, Carmichael sends his subordinate Suzanne Brewer to oversee Hansen and keep him in line. Hansen keeps Claire hostage in a mansion in Croatia, where he has based his operations. Hansen also puts a bounty on Six's head to attract mercenaries and assassins to hunt him down. Six heads to Vienna to find Claire's pacemaker's serial number from Laszlo Sosa, but Sosa betrays him for the bounty. Six escapes just as Hansen arrives with his team, and is rescued by Miranda. Miranda's reputation is in tatters following the Bangkok mission and she initially plans to bring him in to salvage her career at the CIA. Six convinces her to drive him to Cahill's apartment, where she decrypts the drive, which reveals the extent of Carmichael's corruption on behalf of a mysterious benefactor working for a shadow government. Hansen sends several teams of assassins to Cahill's home, and the terminally ill Cahill blows up her home to give Six and Miranda a chance to escape. Six is arrested and handcuffed in the square. A shootout in the streets of Prague follows and Six escapes on a tram. A long chase and gun battle ensues, and Six is saved by Miranda, in Cahill's bulletproof car. The two infiltrate a hospital to track down Claire through the wireless signal broadcast from her pacemaker. The mercenary "Lone Wolf" steals the drive from them, knocking them out, and brings the drive to Hansen. Six and Miranda follow the pacemaker to Hansen's base. Miranda creates a distraction while Six infiltrates the mansion and rescues Fitzroy and Claire. Fitzroy is mortally wounded as they flee and sacrifices himself in a failed attempt to kill Hansen. Miranda knocks out Hansen's men, but Lone Wolf narrowly escapes. He defeats Miranda in a fight but gives her the drive, having become disgusted with Hansen's willingness to kill children and his lack of morals. Hansen manages to take Claire hostage and drags her into a hedge maze. After a standoff, Hansen lets go of Claire and fights with Six. Before Six can kill him, Hansen is shot and killed by Brewer, who tells Six that she plans to pin Carmichael's actions on Hansen in order to gain leverage over him. Furthermore, Brewer pledges Claire's safety but only if Six continues to work for the CIA. Six and Miranda are forced to co-operate in the cover-up, where ultimately no action is taken against Carmichael. After the debriefing at the CIA headquarters, Miranda threatens to kill Carmichael if any harm comes to Claire. Six escapes custody and frees Claire, who is being held at a secret location.

TECHNOLOGY IN AGRICULTURE

Lil'Jay | 2022-08-0502

Science
Hello T-Fans, The way modern farms and agricultural operations operate differs greatly from how they did a few decades ago, largely due to technological developments in the form of sensors, machinery, devices, and information technology. Robots, temperature and moisture sensors, aerial photographs, and GPS technology are all frequently used in modern agriculture. Businesses can become more successful, productive, safe, and environmentally friendly thanks to this cutting-edge equipment, robotic systems, and precision agriculture techniques. WHAT IS AGRICULTURAL TECHNOLOGY? The technology employed in the manufacture of farm equipment is referred to as agricultural technology. Almost all stages of the agricultural process have been suited for agricultural machinery. Due to the fundamental need for food and the necessity to feed a constantly expanding population, agricultural technology is one of the most revolutionary and influential fields of modern technology. Emerging Agriculture Technologies Satellite Imaging - Real-time crop photography is now possible thanks to advancements in distant satellite imaging. This includes photographs with resolutions of at least 5 metres and not merely snapshots taken from the air. With the aid of crop photography, a farmer can inspect crops virtually, just as if they were in front of him or her. A farm can save a lot of time and money by even checking photographs once a week. Additionally, this technology can be combined with crop, soil, and water sensors so that when danger thresholds are reached, farmers will be notified and provided with the relevant satellite photos. Vertical Farming - Since the 1950s and possibly before, vertical farming has been the subject of science fiction, but it is now not just technologically but also financially feasible within the next ten years. modern vertical farming The method of growing food in layers that are piled vertically is known as "vertical farming," which is a subset of urban agriculture. This has a lot of benefits. The ability to grow in urban settings, which enables fresher foods to be made more quickly and inexpensively available, is perhaps the most noticeable. However, contrary to what was previously anticipated, vertical farming won't be restricted to merely urban settings. It can be used by farmers everywhere to make better use of their land and to cultivate crops that wouldn't otherwise be feasible there. Soil and Water Sensors - Water and soil sensors may be the technology having the most noticeable impact right away. These sensors are reliable, discrete, and reasonably priced. They are affordable enough that even small farms may use them, and they have a lot of advantages. For instance, the farm might utilise this information to decide when to water and fertilise rather than following a set timetable because these sensors can detect moisture and nitrogen levels. By saving water, controlling erosion, and lowering the amount of fertiliser in nearby rivers and lakes, this not only results in more effective resource utilisation and reduced costs for the farm. Weather Tracking - Despite the fact that we still make fun of our local meteorologists, computerised weather modelling is actually getting more and more advanced. Farmers can get these services on specialised onboard and handheld farm technologies as well as through mobile apps that run on virtually any consumer smartphone. There are internet weather services that are focused solely on agriculture. This technique can provide farmers with enough prior warning of hail, frost, and other weather conditions that they can take actions to protect the crops or at least significantly reduce losses. Importance of Agricultural Technology Farmers no longer have to evenly distribute water, fertiliser, and insecticides throughout entire fields. Instead, they can utilise the bare minimum necessary, focus on very particular locations, or even handle other plants differently. Benefits include: Increased crop output. Less water, fertiliser, and pesticides are used, which helps keep food prices down.. Lessening of the impact on natural ecosystems. Lower chemical discharge into rivers and groundwater. Improved worker safety. Robotic technologies also make it possible to monitor and manage natural resources—like the quality of the air and water—more accurately. Additionally, it provides farmers and other producers more control over the growing, handling, distributing, and storing of plants and animals, which leads to: Higher efficiency and lower costs. Safer growth environments and foods. Reduced influence on the environment and the ecosystem. Almost every element of our modern life is being changed by technology, and farming is no exception. The vegetables on your dinner plate tonight will have arrived quicker, fresher, and more affordably thanks to cutting-edge agricultural technologies. In the coming decades, agriculture technology will become even more computerised! Have a great weekend T-Fans!!! Read all >>

SHUTTER SPEED: Understanding Pro Mode On The CAMON 19 Series.

General
Hello T-Fans. Here’s how to go professional with Pro-Mode on the CAMON 19 Series? The Pro-Mode camera features on the CAMON 19 series offer you options to push your mobile photography skills to another level, giving you control of the desired end result. One of which is Shutter Speed. Unlike regular phones, Pro Mode on CAMON 19 Series lets you adjust your camera shutter speed to capture the awe of the moment. Shutter speed on the CAMON 19 Series is responsible for two things, brightness of your photo and creating dramatic effects by either freezing action or blurring motion. Shutter speed controls the electronic camera shutter. And it does so by switching the mobile camera’s sensor on and off for a period of exposure. It determines the length of time that the camera sensor inside the CAMON 19 Series is exposed to light when taking a photograph. The amount of light that reaches the sensor is proportional to the exposure time. Essentially, shutter speed is how long your camera spends taking a photo and this has a few important effects on how your images will appear. Long shutter speed (also called slow shutter speed) means more time spent by the camera shutter to take a photograph, which results to dramatic effect of blurred motion along the direction of your moving subject. This effect is used often in advertisements of cars and motorbikes, where a sense of speed and motion is communicated to the viewer. Slow shutter speeds are also used to create a sense of motion on rivers and waterfalls while keeping everything else completely sharp with the help of a tripod. And when you do, the opposite, using a fast shutter speed, the camera of the CAMON 19 Series quickly freezes motion, eliminating motion blur from a fast moving object like birds in flight or cars, etc. The slower the shutter speed, the more light that hits your camera sensor and the brighter the image becomes. The faster the shutter speed, the lesser the light that hits your camera sensor, resulting in a darker photo. Although, this is also influenced by other factors like ISO and Aperture, which will be explained in another thread. Shutter speed is measured in seconds and fractions of a second, with the slowest being 30 seconds on the CAMON 19 Series, following a sequence like this; “30”, “20”, “10”, “6”, “4”,"2", 5″, 2″, 1″,½, ¼, 1/8, 1/15, 1/30, 1/60, 1/125, 1/250, 1/500…” The larger the denominator, the faster the shutter speed. And as we move from the left to right on the Pro Mode shutter speed feature on the CAMON 19 Series, the shutter speed gets slower, with, for example, 30 indicating 30 second. This means the sensor is exposed to light for 30 seconds. To access Shutter Speed on the camera Pro Mode on the CAMON 19 Series, launch the default camera app. Swipe upwards, away from the camera menu at the bottom to bring up the Pro-Mode camera features of the CAMON 19 Series. Tap on Shutter Speed and adjust as you see fit for desired results. Leave a like or comment below if you’ve learnt something new on this thread about the CAMON 19 Series.

WEST HAM VS MANCHESTER CITY PREVIEW

Football
HELLO T-FANS, After 75 long days since the end of the 2021/22 campaign, England's top flight returns and football fans are ecstatic, especially those who have seen their team sign new great players. There are countless names on the list: Erling Haaland, Darwin Nunez, Raheem Sterling, Richarlison, Gabriel Jesus, Kalvin Phillips, Christian Eriksen, Jesse Lingard, Julian Alvarez, etc. The only managerial change made by any of the 20 Premier League clubs this summer was the replacement of interim manager Ralf Rangnick by Erik ten Hag at Manchester United. On Sunday, defending champions Manchester City will begin their title defense away at West Ham in the final match of the opening weekend of the new Premier League season. Last season, West Ham had a strong campaign and finished seventh in the Premier League. They got to the fifth round of the FA Cup, quarterfinals of the EFL Cup, and semifinals of the Europa League. Due to Manchester United's struggles toward the end of the season, the Hammersshould have placed sixth, but David Moyes' team ultimately settled for seventh place and a spot in the playoff round of the Europa Conference League rather than a place in the group stage of the Europa League. West Ham has been impressive in the transfer market this summer, bringing in Gianluca Scamacca, Nayef Aguerd, and Flynn Downes, Maxwel Cornet, and Alphonse AreolaThe club will be hoping to push close to the top four in the league this season. Man City, on the other hand, will come into this game off of a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool in the Community Shield last weekend, with the Reds able to hit the initial blow in what could be yet another exciting matchup between the top two teams in English football this season. It will be interesting to see whether the fact that the Citizens only participated in two preseason games—beating Club America 2-1 on July 20 and defeating Bayern Munich 1-0 three days later—will have an effect on how they perform in the opening weeks of the season. Man City came from two goals down against Aston Villa to win 3-2 on the final day of last season campaign, edging out Liverpool for the title by one point. They finished their 38 games with a record of 29 wins, six draws, and three losses. With the additions of Erling Braut Haaland, Kalvin Phillips, Stefan Ortega, and Julian Alvarez, Pep Guardiola's team has strengthened their squad and will once again be title favorites this season. TEAM NEWS Moyes may have to line up without two of his new arrivals. Centre-back Nayef Aguerd was forced into surgery on his ankle during preseason and Gianluca Scamacca isn't quite up to full match fitness following his arrival from Serie A. Scamacca's Italian compatriot Angelo Ogbonna has been playing with the club's under-21s, easing his way back to full fitness after he suffered a season-ending injury in November. City, meanwhile, will be missing Aymeric Laporte, who isn't expected to return from knee surgery until September at the earliest. Erling Haaland Is expected to start having struggled to make much of an impact in the Community Shield. Despite the fact that Moyes' team failed to defeat Pep Guardiola's squad in the Premier League last year, West Ham is a difficult opponent for City to face due to their strengths in their traditional blind spots; counterattacks and set pieces. The fact that Guardiola's club tends to start League campaigns somewhat slowly is the only criticism that can be leveled at Guardiola at City. While City haven't historically been strong early-season performers under Guardiola, losing games in the first month of the previous five seasons, they still enter the great majority of games as favorites, especially against difficult competition like West Ham.

HOW TO TURN PROCRASTINATION FROM AN ENEMY TO A FRIEND

Hello-Tfans Google has hundreds of articles on how to get procrastination out of the way. But it seems every time the Google high court sentence the criminal to life imprisonment, he always find a way to break free and come back with better tricks to avoid the cops next time. Maybe that's why even the authors of those Google articles still struggle with procrastination till date. We all have difficulties fighting procrastination because we see it as all evil, without bothering to check if it has any good side to it. What if you could turn procrastination into a friend instead following these formula: 1) Have a single highlight for the day: You often procrastinate because you feel you have a lot to do for the day, so many tasks you don't know which one to start with. So at the end, you find yourself achieving little or nothing, then you roll over the tasks to the next day, just to repeat the same circle. To tackle this, have a single highlight for the day: one major thing you would do that would make you feel fulfilled for that day. It shouldn't be just any task, it should be something that connects you to a bigger long term goal. Dedicate 90 minutes of focused work on that single task, before doing anything else. 2) Set priorities for the remaining tasks: After completing your highlighted goal for the day. Move on to other tasks, prioritize what needs to be done immediately, and in between give yourself a few minutes "distraction" time. Yes, distraction is only disastrous when it happens unplanned, set your timer and watch a comedy video for 20 minutes, or just do something fun, before getting back to work. 3) Procrastinate less important tasks: This is the major point of making procrastination a friend and not an enemy. Don't deceive yourself into thinking you could do everything all at once with maximum efficiency. Identify which task requires your full attention now, and what can be put off till a later time. This way procrastination can become a tool for increasing your level of productivity. 4) Delegate: No one is a master of all trade. Some tasks would demand skills that you may be lacking or are not really good at. This is one of the reasons you need to surround yourself with valuable friends who are experts in their own field, they can easily fill in for you, when you need a timely assistance in an area.

Naira falls at I&E window despite a 163% surge in forex supply The exchange rate between the naira and the US dollar closed at N430.67/$1 at the official Investors and Exporters (I&E) window. Naira closed on a bearish note on Tuesday, falling by 0.42% to close at N430.67/$1 from N428.88/$1 recorded in the previous trading session. This is despite the 163.3% increase in forex turnover to $158.68 million.

This is following a shocking depreciation recorded in the previous week, when the naira fell to a record N705/$1 as a result of FX scarcity and panic buying. Meanwhile, Nigeria’s external reserves recorded its tenth consecutive decline on Monday, dropping by 0.23% to stand at $39.1 billion from $39.18 billion recorded as of Friday, 29th July 2022. The decline in the country’s external reserve could be attributed to the increased flow of FX in the official market in the past two days. Black market speculators lose big after naira gains N50/$1 in a few days Since the start of August, the naira has continued to rise while holding onto its gains amid weak buying pressures of the greenback in Nigeria’s black market. A few days after security personnel stormed a Bureaux De Change (BDC) hub in Abuja, the naira continued to strengthen on the black-market Wednesday, strengthening to N660 per dollar. Recall that at the parallel market last week, the naira traded at N710 to the dollar. This also demonstrated the naira’s increase of N50 to the dollar in a matter of days. Since Monday, August 1, the Naira has strengthened against the US Dollar significantly more easily in all facets of the foreign exchange (FX) market. There has been a relative relief for the Naira against the US Dollar across all segments of the foreign currency (FX) market after it faced challenges in July due to demand for the dollar which was spiked by panic buying over devaluation concerns. Although there are local and global viewpoints on the pressure on the naira, the demand for foreign exchange for goods and services has remained constant, posing a demanding challenge. In addition to damaging investor confidence and reducing forex inflows into Nigeria, the country’s deteriorating security situation also damaged the economy by driving up the price of gasoline subsidies and increasing oil theft. The apex bank reaffirmed its commitment to continuing to reform the forex market and pursuing all measures aimed at sanitizing the market to increase transparency and ensure proper operation in order to get rid of illicit currency traders from the economy. FG disburses over N66 billion to 1.258 million Nigerians under MSMEs Survival Fund The Federal Government says that it has disbursed over N66 billion to 1.258 million Nigerians under its Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) Survival Fund and Guarantee Off-Take Scheme.
