General Discussion / How To Develop A Reading Habit As A Student
« on: March 08, 2017, 02:52:33 PM »
More and more people are finding it hard to read every day and this is a cause for worry in this generation globally!

Reading means different things to different people, some read for more knowledge while some read as a past time pleasure.

Some people do not know the joy derived in reading and the amount of knowledge you can acquire through reading.

The day I wrote ‘how I developed a reading  habit’, I got a lot of positive feedback, and so many people said I inspired them!

One said, he actually doesn’t read through any article he only skims but, with my article he read through to the end!

I developed the habit of reading at a very young age, I would read anything readable, sometimes, I would beg people to read for them!

Reading can be a bit boring especially if you are not passionate about reading, people do not know that it takes passion to read.

When I read other people’s article and go through the comment section, people would be complaining about the article being an epistle!

I would be like, how? Because I know the read wasn’t more than three hundred or say four hundred words.

You can become a good reader by first of all reading interesting articles like comic magazines, real-life stories and auto-biographies.

While you are reading, picture yourself in the scenes of the article you are reading or read like you were the one who wrote it!

There is a whole lot you can achieve or gain through reading, because through reading you can develop the habit of writing too.

Reading gives you a sense of responsibility; imagine reading quietly at an event where others are busy with gossips!

People who are observant around would point you out as a wise and responsible person and who knows, it might land you a job.

Another way to develop a reading habit is by reading last thing in the night, especially if you find the novel boring.

Have you noticed that boring novels are always interesting at nights? Because that is the only thing you have to do at that moment!

There are no distractions, nothing to take your attention from whatever you are reading, so reading at nights is essential for lazy readers.

Reading landed me a good job while I was in England, a client enjoyed being read to and I did that so well I replaced someone else!

These days people are only interested in skimming through an article and reading the gossips contained in it.

Some others are interested in looking at photos with funny or lurid captions; remember the information you feed yourself with is vital!

Reading informative articles like news magazines, newspapers, opinions and quality write ups can improve your English vocabulary too!

I have an uncle who did not complete his secondary education but, today speaks good and polished English.

You would think he graduated from Cambridge University. He believed reading would help him speak well and it did!

You too can do it, readers are leaders they say and there is a hundred percent truth in it, if you doubt me, ask my uncle! lol

General Discussion / 5 Characters To Achieve Brighter Future In Life
« on: March 05, 2017, 04:26:05 PM »
To achieve brighter future in life then this articles will be of help.   :D



1) Self-confident:- My friends, this is one of the most important quality you need in life to succeed. No one will ever do your believing for you. In any work of life you find yourself, if you don't stand bold, you will stand no chance. They are many people doing what you are doing or have even done what you are trying to do. In every work of life, there is competition to meet and it takes one with boldness to stand tall to them. You must learn to believe you were never destined to fail. Everyone fails at some certain time in life, yet some people just refuse to be tagged as failure; that's why they are successful today.
Like Ralph Waldo Emerson said in his words, “Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string.”

 


2) Self- development:- In everything you do, you really have to pay concrete attention on this at every time of your life. If you stop growing as a person, probably you having started dying. I don't mean growing in bank account balance, salary or profits; i mean self- improvement. You did something great yesterday doesn't mean that's the best you can do. Life is a journey: everyday is an opportunity to greater heights of improvement. That should be your first priority everyday.

Socrates in his beautiful statement said, “Let him who would move the world first move himself.”

3) Intelligence:- Being intelligent simply means acquiring certain amount of knowledge and having the wisdom to rightfully apply them. You must not dwell in ignorance of any kind. Don't say you don't have a degree or you didn't go to school. You can learn from any rightful platform(online or informally) and make sure you understand. The level of your understanding determines how you go in applying wisdom. Mind you: there is a big difference between examination success called brilliancy, and being intelligent. Most successful intelligent people didn't do well in school.

On this issue, Harlan Ellison has this to say, “You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”

 

4) Listening ears:- The problem of many youths is the inability to digest advise. No one is the pillar of knowledge. Even Jesus Christ said he follows the direction of His father. If you develop the habit of listening, then you are half way to better life. Every successful man has a backup speaker that  advises him on any moves he takes. In life, we all need each other to achieve great goals. Even Presidents has advisers. I mean listening ears on good advise.

Roy T. Bennett gave his advise, “Sometimes all a person wants is an empathetic ear; all he or she needs is to talk it out. Just offering a listening ear and an understanding heart for his or her suffering can be a big comfort.”

ALSO READ: 5 Common Characters of disliked people

5) Success hunger:- Every champion is built by this particular quality. True champions are never tired of success. If you must succeed in life, you must be hungry for it. Being hungry for success means you will only be satisfied when you finally win.

I buy to Israelmore Ayivor advise, “If you are not hungry for success, you will not make the best use of your time. It is simple and clear. People who are truly hungry for food never play with a meal when they see it.”

My friends, i didn't add number 6, because it is very clear that all things consist on God. If you have GOD and hope on Him only, you have all it takes to be great. Don't forget that, we also need to put ourselves in the right state, in other for God to use what we have rightly done for ourselves to bless us.

Following the issues that happened few days ago about the cadet and unilorin students which caused little riot at the school car pack.  :)



The cadet today released an official statement by Cdt. Maj. Elewude, T.P Commanding Officer, CADET CORPS, UNILORIN COMMAND.

He writes,

"THE CADET CORPS UNILORIN COMMAND writes to make clarifications on the happenings of Thursday 2nd of March 2017 which led to several misconceptions and falsified news and has brought about mixed feelings to the part of this command and as  well the University Administration as a whole.


THE ISSUE AT THE CBT CENTER ON THURSDAY 2ND MARCH 2017.

"On Thursday 2nd of March 2017, as part of our usual voluntary service for peaceful coexistence in the university community, we deployed about fifteen officers to the CBT center so as to assist the security division on the maintenance of order and to achieve a free flow of traffic (this has been our routine since the beginning of CBT Tests and Exams).

Around 5.45pm on the said date, the Students' Union President in person of Com. David Shobowale a.k.a Eminent placed a call to the Cadet Adjutant General that he has received several open letters to the effect that the Cadets coordinating queues at the CBT center are using cane on fellow students.

The Cadet Adjutant General disclaimed this and *he said that NO CADET OFFICER would use cane on a fellow student* and even presently as they speak the CADETS are still at the CBT Center performing their duties without denying any student of his/her right, Mr. Eminent was also told that anyone one claiming Cadets are using cane should present a valid claim and stop spreading falsified news.
The Student Union President himself went immediately to the CBT center after the conversation to see things himself and on getting there he did not find any CADET armed with any kind of weapon whatsoever even cane, on this note he proceeded to make findings from some University officials in which the Director of CBT was included on the claim of Cadets using cane and he was told no Cadet was armed.
He as well tried his best to calm the aggrieved students down but all proved abortive, he then placed a call to the Cadet Adjutant General *apologizing for the wrong accusation on his part to the command and he as well commend the efforts of the Cadet at the CBT center and also urged the Adjutant to please make sure his officers are present the next day.*
The case was also reported to the Deputy Chief Security Officer of the University’s Security Division and he as well *commend the efforts of Cadet and also seek for the continuation of the Cadet Service the next day.*


THE ISSUE OF THE CADET THAT WAS BEATEN.


On the withdrawal of the Cadets at the CBT center by the Adjutant General, they head straight to the park in a bid to go to their respective homes and in this course another duty calls because the park by that time has been jam-packed with about 6000 students who were coming from the CBT center.

The Cadets embarked on another duty at the park which is ensuring the orderliness of students and the curbing of shunting, it was at the point that a Cadet Officer on duty, (The Cadet Provost Marshal) was hit with a metal pipe by a 200level student of the Department of Arts Education, Faculty of Education.

The other students on the queue instead of rescuing the Cadet who was hit in the course of his duty shun that but instead joined forces with the attacker to further beat up the said Officer.
The main culprit who attacked the Cadet was later arrested by a Sister Club Officer (Man O War Unilorin Command) and was taken to the security division.

It was at this point that a direct order came from the Cadet Commanding Officer that ALL CADETS should stand down duty with immediate effect, and this was what led to Unilorites getting stranded and they having to struggle and hustle before getting vehicles to convene them to their respective homes, in which during the process 2 students were knocked down by vehicles and about 3 buses were damaged by some unknown aggrieved students.
The Cadet Provost Marshal was later taken to the school clinic and he was attended to, as at the time of writing this report the Cadet Provost Marshal has resumed back to duty.

On a final note, the student who hit a metal pipe on the Cadet Provost Marshal has claimed guilty to the offense charged for and his case has been handed over to the Students Affairs Unit and the Security Division.



Our Message to Unilorites.


*To the writer of “letter to Unilorin Cadets” and his colleagues like Rilwan Adetayo Balogun, Aladodo, Ademola Habeeb (Providence) and Oluwadanie.*
Before you make accusation, put consultation first so that you can be clarified and not to mislead or poison other people's mind. Composing a false write up does not make you a good writer but a killer because a lot of people will be living with heart full of lies.


The priority of the Corps is to maintain discipline, safety of every students and for peaceful coexistence within the University.
The Corps is an intermediary between the School Authority and the Students Security wise.
Stop transferring aggression to *we people of the GREEN UNIFORM.*
Imagine attacking a Cadet who was on duty at the school park when maintaining orderliness?
We guess the so called writers could not write about a Cadet who was hit with a metal pipe on the head by one of the students he was protecting (was he trying to assassinate him?)  But the writers could gladly write about a falsified news that Cadets are flogging their colleagues at the CBT Center….
Even after several false accusations and confrontations, we Cadets never relent in maintaining a peaceful coexistence within the University at the same CBT center the second day which was Friday (03/03/2017) even after one of us was nearly murdered… What a gallant 100% devoted, committed and determined Officers and Men we are.


University of Ilorin is known for Peace let us maintain the standard and let us shun all the acts of indiscipline.
We would always be of help to the entire University Community.

As it is the right of Cadets to render voluntary service so is to right of students to abide by the school laid down rules
Together we can live in Peace...

                                                                                                                                                                                   
*Did You Know the Difference between Cadet Corps and Other ParaMilitary Organization on Campus?
With reference to the recent happenings and past ones, it seems that in the view of some Unilorites anybody on uniform or anybody maintaining orderliness at the school park is a Cadet which is absolutely wrong.
There are four Paramilitary Organizations registered on Campus, which are;
1. Cadet Corps Unilorin Command
2. Man O’ War Unilorin Command
3. Red Cross Unilorin Detachment and
4. Air Scouts’ Unilorin Command
Each and every of these Paramilitary formations has her own respective colour which detonates the external organization it’s affiliated to and also each of these formations have her distinct trait and characteristics but still work hand in hand towards the same goal.

The Cadet Corps is identified with her *GREEN COLOUR Uniform*, The Man O War *BROWN*, Red Cross - *RED* and The Air Scout - *BLUE*


As students of this great citadel of learning, we should learn to differentiate rumors from facts. It astonishes the versions of the same story circulating in the social media. Everyone has an opinion but few have the fact. This is a saddening turn of events as the more these stories circulate, the more people get the wrong information about the Corps.
The Corps is ready to take responsibility of any of her officers caught with any infractions but the said infractions have to be proven beyond reasonable doubt.
On the issue of the Corps issuing a public apology, when the students has listed our infractions and proven that we are guilty beyond reasonable doubt, then you can expect an apology from us.

Thanks to Aladodo.
Thanks to unilorinpeeps teams,
Thanks to all Unilorites that read the post and ready to heed to it.

Good Morning fellow Unilorites, I hope you all had a wonderful night even though yesterday's incident might be a nightmare for some.
I was actually thinking that Unilorin will open a new revolutionary book of history as yesterday's event unfolds, but thanks to The Management, the Union and active Students leaders who brought the issue under control.

Fellow Unilorites, do you think taking things the hard way and turning down a whole school will lead us out of injustice and will get us back our rights that are being trampled upon? This question I leave you to answer.

If your answer is "No", then read :
Fellow Unilorites, we all know we are being oppressed, our rights are being trampled upon and it's the highest form of injustice. Yesterday's incident was really an Eye-opener, we can actually liberate ourselves without bringing in violence.

Let me start by saying, we all know our rights on campus, we know the school rules and regulation and we dutifully abide by those rules, the school should also reciprocate by fulfilling their responsibilities and see to it that not even a water drop of injustice touches us but the reverse is the case.

If we want to liberate ourselves, it is a collective duty and not a sole responsibility of anyone.
We have Student activist on campus who are ready to lead us without protest, we have activist who are people of high virtues, integrities and values.
We have beautiful writers on campus, who are ready to voice out our opinions and our voices will always be heard.

We ourselves are people of high values and integrity, We are better by far, let's show the Management that we all stand together In love, peace and harmony.
You can always liberate yourself from the bullies of the cadets if they try to rough handle you, let them know they are student just like you are and they are there to safeguard your interest and not to trample on it.

Thank God the Students' Union President has put a call through the Deputy Chief Security Officer (DCSO) and he has agreed that all Cadets and Security men on campus will sign and undertaken that such issues won't repeat itself. We will all see to it that the undertaken is signed and the President must pass it round social media for all to see.

Fellow Unilorites, you can liberate yourself from the Securities, let them know your fees pays their salaries, let them know you aren't here on a Scholarship scheme, let them know you have your rights and you stand for it.

Fellow Unilorites, you can always liberate yourself from the Harassment of the drivers, let them know your money feeds them and they rely on you for a living.

Fellow Unilorites, there are several ways we can do this without having to turn things around. We are better by far, do not let us result to violence for it will bring about nothing but more violence.

Fellow Unilorites, let us all unite and be each others keeper, stand for your friend whose right is about to be molested, stand for your course mates, your brothers and Sisters.

Fellow Unilorites, you can only face Tankè when you do it the wrong way. Know your manner of approach, take beautiful steps and caution, be an advocate of peace. And you are sure to conquer and overcome.

The School Management have sons and daughters amidst us, they know what it takes to give them sustainable, when we approach things the right way, we always end up winning.

Fellow Unilorites, I call on you all to say "No to injustice, No to molestation of our rights, whenever you want to do this, do it with wisdom, be an advocate of peace, things might not change overnight but I believe that when we go through the right channel, we will succeed and we will soar high like the eagle.

GOD BLESS UNILORIN!_
GOD BLESS UNILORITES!!_
GOD BLESS THE STUDENT'S UNION!!!

Something that almost all of us are going to have to go through at one point or another. Job interviews are a fact of life. We need money so we need to work (at least most of us do). To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of the 25 biggest mistakes you can make at a job interview.


25- Ask what job you are interviewing for

This sounds obvious, but it can happen, especially when you’re running between interviews. A better way to structure this question would be to ask what a typical work day looks like.

24- Say negative things about yourself

Only do this if you can explain how you will
change them

23- Ask about the drug test

Unless you are doing it to find out about its effect on your credit (it shouldn’t have any effect)

22- Chew gum

If you really need to do this out of nervousness, make sure to ask/tell your interviewer why you are doing it before you actually do it. That way you at least won’t look as disrespectful. It’s better just to avoid this though.

21- Bring your kids

Or your parents. Just don't.

20- Fist bump the interviewer

Use a regular, firm, right-handed handshake.

Note: I know you’re probably not crazy enough to do this but our point is to keep your greetings simple and formal.

19- Be late

But don’t be too early either. Aim for about 15 minutes before your scheduled time.

18- Give the impression that you aren't sticking around

It’s okay to say that you want to go back to school eventually, it shows ambition. Just don’t make the interviewer feel like you’re leaving within the next few months.

17- Talk over the interviewer

This is another one that sounds obvious, but some people may do this out of nervousness. Fight the urge.

16- Focus on yourself

You might be asking, but how? What I mean is, don’t just ask questions pertaining to time off, salary, benefits, etc. And don’t make it sound like the only reason you want to work there is for the money. Rather, focus on how you fit into the company and how you can help the company solve the problems they are hiring you to solve.

15- Underdress

If you are unsure about what to wear, suit up. Overdressing never hurt anybody.

14- Be rude to non-interviewers

Just because they’re not doing your interview doesn’t mean that they won’t be consulted. Your interview starts at the reception desk.

13- Ask how you did

It doesn’t matter how confident you appeared during the interview. This one question will destroy all of it.

12- Talk poorly about previous employers

This is a huge red flag. If you badmouth one
company, what’s to stop you from saying negative things about another company?

11- Use words that you don't know the meaning of

This is a quick way to make yourself look both pretentious and uneducated

10- Lie

Most people are terrible liars. And besides, if it’s not obvious right away, if your lie is ever found out it could potentially terminate your
employment down the line.

9- Be somebody you're not

If you’re a joker, be a joker. If you’re a nerd, be a nerd. Don’t put on a show unless you’re
auditioning for a theatre or something like that.

8- Neglect hygiene

Brush your teeth, comb your hair, iron your
clothes, look sharp.

7- Bring your phone

Leave it in the car. Just do it.

6- Stay seated when being introduced

Stand up. Always

5- Ask about things that were stated in the job posting

It just makes it look like you didn’t actually read it. And on that note, make sure you actually read the job posting.

4- Wear too much perfume or cologne

A little is okay, too much is not okay.

3- Give a sob story

Everybody has a sob story, and sob stories are usually obvious. Don’t rely on it during an interview

2- Look desperate

This doesn’t mean to act smug or stuck up though. It just means that you shouldn’t make it look like your life is hanging on getting the job

1- Look like your time is being wasted

Even if you’re applying to McDonalds, this will not earn you points with the recruiter

General Discussion / No More Unilorin Cadets - A Student writes
« on: March 03, 2017, 08:24:07 AM »



A student who also an eye witness expressed his own opinion concerning the incidents that happened in school last night.

He writes,

The real commotion actually started when a CADET beat an innocent guy with a rod.... I could hear the sound 100 meters away. That was when everyone lost it and instead of trying to control the crowd the Cadets were busy beating up the guy who was trying to retaliate. So before anyone comes here on the defense of the Cadets u should get ur details right. I was a live witness.

Obviously Cadets has done more harm than good to Unilorin community. I think is time to say Goodbye.

« on: March 03, 2017, 07:06:32 AM »


This evening,at the park,while on duty at the park:monitoring the queue,attending to health issues,and collating reports on the developments that arose from the imbroglio at the park today, we immediately moved on to the school clinic.where some students were hitherto rushed down from the park.

We met with,and attended to two of them; one just got stitched on his left face some minutes earlier after he was hit by a bus,while the other was being attended to by the nurses on duty.

We can confirm that these students have been properly admitted and attended to by the Doctors, and their details have been taken.

The nurses gave word that the other two students have being attended to before our arrival.

We must relate that the state of things at the clinic is currently under control...


We have to appreciate the lots of our students who volunteered themselves to bring these students down here,and all those who partook in subjecting the situations at the park to control.

We shall brings more updates to you later.
