Hello T-Fans, I believe some of us has had one or two experience with this skin disease called 'Ringworm'. Unlike its conventional name, it doesn't mean a worm is actually the cause of this disease, it is just like blaming chickens for causing chickenpox, though ringworm is contagious and can spread from pet to human. Also it is not caused by any known parasite. Ringworm is actually a skin condition that is caused by a fungus called 'Tinea'.

Normally a Ringworm patient will suffer from red itchy scaly patches all over their skin, and as time goes by it takes the shape of several rings or better still a circle, which lives on dead skin tissues such as; hair and nails. Though it is the most common on the arms and scalps. Apart from the above-listed parts, you can actually get ringworm across anywhere of your skin, and this includes the face. The only good thing about this skin disease is that, it responds well to home remedies.
Home Remedies / Medications For Treating Ringworms.
✓ Aloe Vera:
The majority of us will also agree with me that this herbal plant is well renowned for its antibacterial and antifungal properties. And I am certain there are lots of medicinal statistics to back up the healing properties of this plant. Aloe vera has been proven to cure ringworm and also soothe the symptoms of discomfort, itching, and inflammation. All you have to do is break up a piece of aloe vera and rub it's natural gel directly across the affected fungus area.
This yellow plant is a member of the ginger family, it possesses numerous health benefits such as; anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, it is also a home remedy used for treating arthritis. All you have to do is mix a teaspoon of turmeric powder, with little amount, of water, or better still little coconut oil, mix until it becomes like a paste, then apply directly on the infected skin and leave it to dry.
✓ Coconut Oil:
This so happens to be a highly effective home remedy for ringworm and other fungi infections like; Candida. The reasons are not far fetched seeing how coconut oil possesses both antifungal and microbial properties which can be used to soothe the itching and irrigation of ringworm. All you have to do is heat the coconut oil either with a gas cooker or microwave, until it turns into liquid form, after which you apply over the affected area, this process should be carried out three (3) times daily until it heals.
This can also be used for treating ringworm seeing how rich it is in bioactive compounds such as; Allicin. The compound possesses some antifungal properties that can help soothe and heal the infection. All you have to do is get about 3 cloves of garlic, crush or better still grind these cloves together till it becomes a paste, then proceed to apply directly over the affected areas and leave for fifteen (15) minutes before washing it off. Repeat this step daily till it heals.
✓ Oregano Oil:
This is yet another effective antifungal extracts that can be used to treat a fungal skin infection, athlete foot, and also ringworm. All you have to do is mix two (2) to three (3) drops of oregano oil with a carrier oil such as; olive oil or coconut oil, and apply directly to the affected area three (3) times daily.
✓ Tea Tree Oil:
This is yet another bioactive compound, that possesses both antifungal and antibacterial properties, also it has also proven to be effective in the treatment of fungal skin infection. If you have got sensitive skin all you have to do is dilute the tea tree oil in a carrier oil such as; sweet almond oil or coconut oil, get a cotton ball swap and dip into the mixture, then apply directly on the affected area. Should you not have sensitive skin, simply apply the tea tree oil directly on the affected part, with the aid of cotton wool, threw times daily.
Ringworm is highly contagious, and it is easily spread when you are in contact with someone who is infected with it. These effective home remedies can help you manage and treat ringworm infection while you are in the comfort of your home. Should symptoms persist after two weeks, it is imperative you see a doctor so as to unveil any underlying dermatological issues.
If you find any of these home remedies helpful in alleviating the symptoms of ringworm, do share your experience, thoughts, and feedback via the comments sections below, and don't forget to follow my account to see more of my posts.

Have you ever been in a situation where your phone got stolen and you are rendered planless? As if that was not bad enough, the thief decides to wire all your money from your bank account! Double tragedy!
I came across a piece of information that I felt would be useful to T spotter so I decided to make a thread on it. according to the information, you can deactivate the USSD access connected to the device. All you need to do is punch in a USSD combination on any phone around. Cool right?
So if you ever find yourself in such a situation, just get someone around and dial the code *901*911# and input the stolen number and that number would be blacklisted from USSD transactions temporarily.
This feature is only available to Access bank users!
Do you know any other bank that offers such services, drop a comment in the comment section!

Hello, T-Fans. 802.11ax is the original IEEE naming standard for WiFi 6. But WiFi Alliance has voted to give WiFi an easy name so that most people can relate to the various WiFI modifications. The old name will remain relevant to Network Administrators and ICT professionals but for the general public, WiFI (number) is the name to remember and WiFI alliance is pushing the new name. Below we would be looking at some of the technologies that make WiFi 6 special.
OFDMAOFDMA (orthogonal frequency division multiple access) is the same technology adopted in 4G LTE. This innovation is designed to improve data transmission efficiency by reducing the individual waiting time for devices.It works by splitting the data transmission channel into a large number of subchannels. These subchannels can carry data intended for a different device.
MU-MIMOMU-MIMO(multi-user, multiple-input, multiple-output) is a technology which exists in use in present 802.11ac (WiFi 4) and devices, however, 802.11ax(Wi-Fi 6) upgrades it.The technology allows an access point to interact with multiple devices at the same time, rather than broadcasting to one device at a time. The currentMU-MIMO in 802.11ac (WiFi 4) allows routers to communicate with four devices at a time but WiFi 6 steps that up to eight.
TARGET WAKE TIME (TWT)Target Wake Time enables devices to determine when and how often they will wake up to send or receive data. This allows 802.11ax(WIFI 6) access points to effectively increase device sleep time and significantly conserve battery life, a feature which is very important for IoT devices and mobile phones.A simple analogy of TWT, with 802.11ac(WiFi 4) the access point usually sends a broadcast signal to alert all devices of a possible data transmissions. Since the AP can only communicate with one station at a time, they have to “stay awake” to receive data packets from the AP one after another regardless of how long that process takes. This causes extra power consumption and shorter battery lives for network devices.
BACKWARD COMPATIBILITYWiFi 6 is backwards compatible with devices which comes with 802.11n(WIFI 3) and 802.11ac (WiFi 5) devices. If you are opportune to get yourself a WiFi 6 Access Point or Router you don't have to change all your home devices, WiFi 6 will work perfectly fine with then but those devices will be capped at there previous existing speeds.You will need a device with WiFI 6 capability to take advantage of all the WiFi 6 speed.
Talking about speed, that which everyone is interested in. Of course, there is a significant theoretical speed boost to 9.6 Gbps. That’s up from 3.5 Gbps on Wi-Fi 5.Although these speeds are theoretical and your very much unlikely to hit these speeds, but it's a good thing to have large bandwidth like this especially when you're looking to connecting lots of devices.
Security upgrades are also as important and speed and bandwidth upgrades. Consequently, the WiFi Alliance has certified WPA3 as the default encryption for WiFi 6. WPA3 security is made to offer protection against offline password-guessing attacks. This is where an attacker captures data from your Wi-Fi stream, brings it back to a private computer, and guesses passwords over and over again until they find a match.WPA3 will be compatible with devices that support WPA2, so your old devices won’t stop working because you got new ones.
ITS ROLL0UT WILL BE GRADUAL
WiFi 6 rollout will be gradual. WiFi 6 routers and Access points are already available in the market but just the expensive ones. Qualcomm has already started supporting WiFi 6 on their high-end SoC like Snapdragon 855. It might take a while before it becomes mainstream.

Irrespective of what you do with your laptop, nobody wants their laptops to run out earlier than expected. especially in this part of the world where constant power supply is a big problem. Together we could look at the best way to get the best from your battery life.
THE REALITY OF LAPTOP BATTERYs
No matter what battery life tips you apply, your laptop battery can only be as good as its capacity, health and efficiency of its internal (i.e RAM, Hard Disk, and most importantly the processor).
If it's a new laptop, the battery capacity and estimated manufacturer's battery life should determine what you likey to expect from the battery life. For a second-hand laptop, just cross your heart and hope it lasts.
Battery life tips will only take you so far but can manage to squeeze out about an hour or 30 mins from your battery with the following tips.
ADJUST THE BATTERY LIFE PERFORMANCE SLIDER
With Windows 10 a is a battery life performance slider introduced, the slider can be found. when you click the battery icon from the notification panel. It group all of the settings that affect battery life into a few easy-to-understand categories. The company that made your PC determines exactly which settings the battery slider controls. But in general, sliding down to the best battery life reduces the display brightness by 30 per cent, prevents Windows update downloads, stops the Mail app from syncing, suspends most background apps and throttles the PC.
YOU CAN FURTHER GEEK OUT WITH THE PERFORMANCE ADJUSTMENT
The predefined performance slider can get you so far, however, you can further get some extra mins in the advance power settings if you know what you're doing. You can access the advance power settings by
> Right-clicking in the battery icon and clicking power options or searching for power option after pressing the Windows key.
> Click on change plan settings
> Select the advance power settings
> From here you can play around with battery tweaks like Processor power management, battery state etc.
Diacalmer, you should skip this them if you're not sure about what you're doing.
CLOSE UNUSED APPS AND TURN OFF RADIOS
Multiple apps and processes running on your system will kill battery life more quickly, and chances are you probably aren't actively using everything that's currently running on your PC. It's a good habit to adjust your laptop by sticking to one app at a time and closing everything else when you're not using it.
Just like your phones, radios (WiFI, Bluetooth etc) contributes significantly to battery drain, if you're not using any of this radio at any particular time, you should turn it off of totally enable aeroplane mode when you don't need internet.
ITS TIME TO CHANGE THAT BATTERY OR LAPTOP
Tip and tweaks can only take you so far if your system battery life is already depleted or if a long-lasting battery was never the design consideration for your laptop. If the above tricks don't work, you should start considering changing the battery, living with what you have got or getting a new PC.

3. BE CAREFUL HOW YOU PUT IT AWAY Unless you’re using a super-effective case or screen protector, ladies, avoid putting keys in the same section of your handbag as your phone. Gents – keys and phones don’t belong in the same pocket. If you’ve ever had a scratch that is right in the middle of the area you need to swipe, you’ll know that key scratches (and other scratches) can seriously ruin the touchscreen experience.
While you’re at it, don’t put the phone in dangerous places, like on a balcony railing, for example. That’s just asking for the phone to fall and get smashed to pieces. When you put your phone down, keep it away from hazards so it will survive till you’re ready to upgrade.
4. AVOID WATER AND EXTREME TEMPERATURES Most people don’t put their phones in water deliberately, but lots of people forget they have a phone in their pocket when heading to the beach or pool. One dip later, and the phone is toast (unless you manage to dry it out with rIce).
5. KEEP IT CLEAN You might not be able to see dust particles, but they get into your smartphone, even if you’re using a case or screen protector. Too much dust and your phone’s performance takes a hit. Use a soft screen-cleaning cloth with an appropriate screen cleaner to wipe your screen gently. Open the case every now and then to give the phone a wipe and get rid of the dust.
The five tips above help you provide external smartphone maintenance and protection, but safeguarding your phone is also about keeping it running smoothly. Here are some tips for doing that.
6. STREAMLINE AND UPDATE YOUR APPS Most smartphones include a bunch of apps that the manufacturer has installed. Chances are, you don’t need all of them. Since the more apps you run, the shorter your battery life, disable, or uninstall any apps you don’t need. For the apps, you DO use, make sure you’re always running the latest version. App developers update apps regularly, add new functionality, cut down on resource usage, and guard against malware and security threats.
Tip: Either set your apps to update automatically, or update them manually at least once a week.
7. CLEAR THE CACHE When you install apps or when they run, they may leave junk files behind in the cache. Those take up memory you could use for things you really want to do. Clear these files out from time to time. Both Android and iOS allow you to do this.
8. USE TRUSTED SOURCES Sometimes you want to download and install a new app, but where should you get it from? With the rise of malware on phones, the best advice is to use the app store for your device or another trusted app store, such as Amazon’s.
9. EXPAND YOUR STORAGE If your phone allows it, install an external SD card to increase the available storage, then run any apps you can from this storage. You can also use it to store media files. This frees up the phone’s internal memory, resulting in better performance.
10. LOOK AFTER THEBATTERY Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for looking after your battery. Depending on the age of your phone and the battery it’s using, this might include: charging your phone before it runs down completely letting it run down fully once in a while restarting your phone from time to time turning off services you don’t need (like mobile data when you can use Wi-Fi and live wallpaper) keeping the battery cool (and turning off the phone to let it cool down if it overheats)
There’s plenty of advice online about the best practices for your particular smartphone model. Finally, you also need to ensure you can find your phone if someone steals it. Use the security features built into your device to help with this: Lock your phone with a pin, password, or pattern. Don’t share your password.Install a security app to help you find your phone if it goes walkabout.

There are lots of hidden features on your HiOS launcher I bet most users don’t know about. These features may not be major, but they offer you a level of customization that makes your interface stand out from other Tecno users.
One of such cool hidden feature is your ability to change the text colour of your launcher. I bet you didn’t know that!
So, why do I need to change the colour of my text you may ask? Well, sometimes your text colour blends with your background and it makes it difficult to read what is on the home page. With this level of customization, you can just change the text colour to your preferred colour.
Changing the text colour is quite easy. Just follow the steps below:
Step 1: On the home page, press and hold till the launcher setting shows
Step 2: Click on the desktop settings
Step 3: Select text colour
Step 4: a dropbox shows. You can select auto or any of the basic colours. If you want more options, select custom

Hello! T fans, we all know coronavirus and social distancing have presented a new challenge of staying in touch, hosting meetings and attending classes remotely. Zoom quickly became the go-to tool for running company meetings and attending classes, because Zoom is easy to set up, easy to use and lets up to 100 people join a meeting for free. But there's a downside. Zoom's ease of use attracted hackers and lots of scrutinies.
PROBLEMS WITH ZOOM
ZOOMBOMBING: The problem started with a vulnerability known as ZoomBombing. This allowed any unwanted intrusion into a video conference call by an individual if they know the meeting number, and then use the file-share photo to post malicious images.
CRYPTO MALWARE: Researchers at Trend Micro discovered a version of the Zoom installer that has been bundled with cryptocurrency-mining malware. The Zoom installer will install Zoom version 188.8.131.52 on your Windows PC, alongside a coin-miner nicknamed Trojan.Win32.MOOZ.THCCABO. To avoid getting hit with this malware, make sure you're running an antivirus program, don't click on any links in emails, social media posts or pop-up messages that promise to install Zoom on your device. By the way, the latest Zoom client software for Windows is up to version 4.6.9, and you should get it only from here.
ZOOM ENCRYPTION LIES: Zoom mislead users about its "end-to-end encryption", Zoom says it uses AES-256 encryption to encode video and audio data travelling between Zoom servers and Zoom clients. But researchers at the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto, in a report posted April 3, found that Zoom uses the somewhat weaker AES-128 algorithm.Encryption is one of the major reason companies and organization such as Google, NASA etc have banned Zoom use for their staff.
USE ZOOM WITH CAUTION: Its been a hard period for zoom who were well on their way to financial success, now they are faced with all these privacy and cybersecurity problems.There has been a lot other data bridge which involved leaked accounts and passwords, most of which I didn't detail in this report because some of them have either been fixed as the time of writing this report or the company has promised to address the issue.These reports do not mean you shouldn't use Zoom at all, You just need to be aware that the Zoom software creates a huge "attack surface," and that hackers are going to try to come at it every way they can. If your working on anything that involves high privacy and confidentiality, we would advise you to avoid the use of Zoom.

World’s largest social media company, Facebook is designing a massive underwater cable around Nigeria and other African countries, bringing high-speed connectivity to the continent’s 1.3 billion inhabitants.
Facebook has partnered with the likes of South Africa’s MTN, Britain’s Vodafone,France’s Orange, and China Mobile, and other Africa based operators called 2Africa to build the laudable project, which worth about $1 billion.
According to Bloomberg, Facebook has assigned Nokia-owned cable systems providers and others to build the subsea cable. At 37,000 km, Facebook claims the internet cable will equal the total distance covered round earth.
The main object of this massive project, Facebook says, is to bring efficient and high-speed internet connectivity to citizens of Africa.
Africa is “currently the least connected” in the world, Facebook wrote in a blog post yesterday with just 25% of its population having access to the internet
The submerged cable will interconnect 23 countries in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
In addition, Facebook said it will “provide nearly three times the total network capacity of all the subsea cables serving Africa today.”

If you are reading this is an obvious reality that you know of Tspot and you have an interest on boosting your numbers of followers on Tspot.
So today I'll be sharing with you all how to get more followers on T-spot but first you need to know that the rules that applies to most social media, seriously don't apply here. So you literally can't go about doing anyhow that pleases you. There are rules here and if you want to see results, it's best you stick to all of them. Not 'SOME' of them but 'ALL'. Because no matter what I tell you on how to get that rise on the numbers of followers, it all still centres round the rules that apply here. So here's a list of do's and don't on how you can go about that.
(1) BE ACTIVE: If you really want to see that increase on the numbers of followers, you need to be very active on Tspot. Some of us are only active when we have complains. We don't mind staying online for days posting same complains over and over again and once we get the solution, it is bye bye to Tspot until the next problem shows up. There are some of us that are active but in a negative way. Being active is divided into two (negative and positive).
Negatively active users are always online constantly spamming the forum with every opportunity they get. You always know that everytime you hear from these people would involve a spam message and if you are in this category, egungun becareful na express you dey go. You could get kicked out of Tspot for good.
Positively active users on the other hand are always online, consistently adding value. Everyday you hear from them is an addition to your knowledge. They are constantly trying to assist people with solutions to problems even before they experience it and there's no way you'll be in this category and not see a consistent increase in your numbers of followers. So if you would like this for yourself, you need to be ACTIVE and not just being active but POSITIVELY ACTIVE.
(2) ADD VALUE: You need to give people a reason to be around you and the fastest way you can do that is to add value to the forum by sharing your knowledge or your experience on certain issues with people. It doesn't necessarily have to be a solution to a problem users might be experiencing on their device, it could be your experience or thoughts on things that matter to you, an example could be on the COVID-19 issue the world is battling with right now, if not as a thread, you can do so on the comment box on any that speaks of it especially under the health section of Tspot.
You can also share with others a recommendation of your favourite android apps and why it deserves to be on their phones. It could also be on how you were able to get around a problem on your device or the services at carlcare or your favourite music, movies etc especially now with people stuck at home, looking for how to engage themselves. There's a whole lot you can add to the forum if only you are willing to make the time for it.
(3) BE CONSISTENT: There's a saying that anything worth doing is worth doing well but in this case, am going to say, anything good worth doing is worth doing over and over again.
In adding value, you need to be consistent. You need to constantly give people a reason to return every now and then. And one way you can do that is to put up threads that touches every corners of discussion.
(4) GET RECOGNIZED: Are you familiar with badges on Tspot? If you are not, return to the homepage>mine>membership>current badges. It will give you a list of badges available on Tspot that you can earn for yourself. Click on any and it will tell you what you need to do to earn one for yourself. Among them is one that you can quickly get for yourself even if you are a just joining Tspot for the first time as a new user. It is called the 'SUPER FAN MEDAL'.
To get this, all you need to do is follow a user with over a 100 followers and that's all. You get recognized on Tspot with a super fan medal.
(5) ALWAYS VISIT YOUR COUNTRY'S HOMEPAGE: Charity they say begins at home and same applies here. You need to familiarize yourself with those around you. Since we are from the same country, there's a high chance whatever you post is easily relatable to someone from the same locality. So whatever you do on Tspot, let charity begins at home, start with your country's section on Tspot.
(6) MARK YOUR PRESENCE: Even in reality, people who marks their presence everywhere they go, leave their footprints in the sands of time and in the case of Tspot, marking your presence means leaving something behindeverytime you are online especially comments on the post of others. Always ensure that you say something or contribute to what others have said. When this begins to happen, people would want to hear from you as much as possible which would all come down to you gaining followers.
You can add to this list on the comment box and ensure you follow others who makes a comment on the thread. You can also get recognize with a super fan medal immidiately you follow me on Tspot.
