#LegitLists: Doing These 8 Things Can Damage Your Immune System. Be Careful!

You are more susceptible to getting sick when your immune system is weak. Hence, having a healthy immune system is crucial for your body’s ability to ward off viruses, bad bacteria, parasites, and other infections.

Our own behaviors and habits have a definite impact on our health, and these activities can cause some serious damage on our immune systems.

It’s much better to take matters into your own hands with preventative care, than wait before your immune system gets weaken completely.

Here are 8 Things You Are Doing That Can Damage Your Immune System:

STAYING LONELY.

In as much as we love to keep to ourselves most times, unfortunately being lonely all the time can indirectly weaken your immune system due to the stress it triggers. To avoid this try getting social once in a while or more often.

ALLOWING STRESS EAT YOU UP.

Living a stress-filled life with so much anxiety can be very harmful to your health. This is because stress reduces the immune system’s ability to fight against diseases. Also the stress hormone can stop the immune system from functioning well.

NOT GETTING ENOUGH EXERCISE.

Not getting the needed exercise your body requires can be bad for your well being. Staying indoor all day without moving your muscles can contribute to a poor immune response. Working out regularly not only boosts your energy. It can also boost your immunity.

Physical fitness pumps up the number of antibodies and white blood cells in your body, which are equally necessary for the early detection of infections and for fighting them off.

TAKING TOO MUCH ALCOHOL.

Taking in more than the needed amount of alcohol your body needs is very dangerous to your health. The excess intake of alcohol makes it harder for the immune system to fight against diseases and infections. It also increases the risk of serious infections.

EATING A LOW-FIBER DIET.

Eating a variety of local fiber-rich foods like fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes (beans), rather than excess meat, poultry, or dairy products will do more help to your immune system. Fiber provides nourishment to the billions of “good” bacteria in our guts responsible for keeping our immune systems in great health.

TAKING TOO MUCH ANTI-BIOTICS.

An excess usage of antibiotics for the slightest ailment or infection can cause damage to your immune system. Medical studies prove that antibiotics can actually work against the body and impair the way the immune system wards of germs if taken in excess.

LACK OF PROPER HYGIENE.

Different types of microbes, including viruses and bacteria, are present all around us. These can cause a variety of illnesses if we do not maintain a healthy immune system. One of the factors that contribute to the weakening of the immune system is the lack of proper hygiene.

The best way to keep these microbes at bay is to maintain proper hygiene habits like washing hands regularly, wearing clean clothes and drinking pure water.

LACK OF SLEEP.

Sleep is the time when your body recharges and heals. If you’re not getting enough sleep, your body is denied the downtime that’s necessary to stay on top of invading pathogens. This is because sleep helps sustain the functioning of the immune system.

How To Talk To Girls – Ways To Talk To Girls & Get Her To Like You

^Figuring out how to talk to girls can be difficult, but is really key to improving you dating success.

Imagine you see a girl that you like, but you don’t know what to say to attract and seduce her.

Firstly, know that girls do not remember everything you say, just like you hardly remember what a girl said to you.

So getting every little detail right for your opening line is putting unwanted extra pressure on yourself.

To learn how to talk to girls requires a little bit of training.

Yes, that’s right, you need to train your social skills in order to improve your abilities for picking up and seducing girls.

So if you think reading this article is all you need, then you are mistaken my friend.

If you are trying to figure out what to say to that one special girl, then my best advice is to practice on a lot of girls you don’t care about first.

So what specifically can I do to make sure the conversation goes smoothly?
Firstly have some good conversation topics to talk about.
That way if there is a pause (or worse, an awkward silence) you will have something else to continue on the conversation with.
  • Just make sure to always avoid creepy/weird subjects.

Come to the conversation realizing that the girl you are talking to could be very bored.

So if can be the guy who grabs her attention and makes her have fun just by talking to her, then you are halfway to seducing her.

If you are afraid of putting in the hard yards now to learn how to talk to girls, then you will be in trouble.

A lot of people think that having a cool car or loads of muscles is what gets the girl.

They’re not wrong, but…..

A girl will go out with a guy for a short while if he is really good-looking or really ‘buff’ or really rich.

However without the ability to actually talk to girls and have a decent, fun conversation, then they will have a lot of trouble either keeping the girl without her cheating or leaving them altogether for another man.

BREAKING News: All Schools In Nigeria Are Resuming On 7th September (University, Poly, Secondary School And Others

Universities, Poly and Others Set to Resume September 7 as Post-UTME Kicks Off

According to an information reaching us revealed that the Joint admission and Matriculation (JAMB) and all tertiary institutions have agreed to commence the 2020/2021 post- Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) screening on September 7.

On this note, all tertiary institutions are set to reopen after the shutdown of schools across the nation in march 2020 following the outbreak of the deadly virus (Covid-19).

Reopening of all tertiary institutions ahead of the 2020/2021 post-Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) screening on September 7 is compulsory because schools must be fully opened to enable the successful conduction of 2020 post UTME Screening.

Hostels across all tertiary institutions must reopen for candidates to have accommodation as they sit for 2020 post UTME Screening.

All indication shows that students must resume in all campuses from all levels as Universities, Poly and Others Set to Resume September 7 for Post-UTME Kicks Off.

According to JAMB bulletin that was released on monday 10th, August, 2020,The board explained the shift in the date of admission processes was to allow students sitting for the 2020 O’ level examinations conducted by the West African Examinations Council, National Examination Council and National Business and Technical Examination Board obtain the required O’ level qualifications

Registrar of JAMB, Prof Is-haq Oloyede, disclosed this on Monday after a consultative virtual meeting with Vice Chancellors, Rectors and Provosts of tertiary institutions.

NUC Directs Vice Chancellors to Urgently Ascertain Level of Preparedness for Safe Reopening of Varsities
The federal government through the Minister of State for Education, Mr. Emeka Nwajiuba has said the decision on the full reopening of tertiary institutions and others, will be reached after the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 evaluates all the necessary data presented before it.

This is coming as the government has also said that 46 percent of those that have tested positive to the pandemic in the country are the youths, just as only eight states of the federation and the FCT accounted for 70 percent of the tests carried out so far, with Lagos State accounting for 25 percent of the 70 percent tests.

Nwajiuba made this clarification yesterday when the members of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 addressed the media.

The minister said he held a meeting with some owners of private universities yesterday in relation to the reopening of the tertiary institutions.

He also reiterated the appeal which some stakeholders had made to the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), to place a moratorium on strike actions for the next three years, in order to allow the Nigerian university system to rebuild itself before they start further agitations.

“We are working with science and data and when the country is ready to reopen, I do not believe that ASUU will be unreasonable or illogical about resuming. They have over 10, 000 professors out of nearly 65, 000 lecturers and I am almost confident that they would know as well as we do that the children need to go back to school as long as we are ready,” Nwajiuba said.

The eight states accounting for the 75 per cent COVID-19 tests alongside the FCT, include Lagos, Kano, Plateau, Oyo, Kaduna, Edo, Ogun, and Rivers.

The federal government said that it is currently investigating healthcare-associated infection in a health facility in Kaduna State.

Speaking during the media briefing, the Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire said that COVID-19 has had a significant impact oN young people.

He said: “As of (Wednesday) 46 percent of positive cases in the country are young people between of ages 21-40”.

Ehanire also expressed concern over the resurgence of infection among healthcare workers.

He said that in a bid to sustain the gains the country has made in reducing the rate of infection among the health workers, the ministry has embarked on training and retraining of health workers on infection prevention and control.

In Abia state, Ehanire said the ministry has concluded the training of 594 healthcare workers from private and public health facilities on infection prevention and control.

“We are currently investigating healthcare-associated infection in a health facility in Kaduna State. Lessons learnt from this will be used to improve service delivery.

Ehanire spoke of the plan to carry out tests on at least one percent of the country’s over 200 million population.

“Our target remains to test one percent of our population across the country. As of today, more than 70 per cent of all the tests conducted have been in nine states including Lagos, Kano, FCT, Plateau, Oyo, Kaduna, Edo Ogun Rivers with 25 per cent of the tests in Lagos alone.

We shall continue to work with state governments to ramp up case findings and sample collection activities,” he said.

Also speaking, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama said he could not explain how he contracted COVID-19.

The minister, who tested positive for the virus three weeks ago, attended the PTF meeting and media briefing yesterday after he had recovered and tested negative to the virus. He said he caught the virus despite adhering to all the safety protocols.

He expressed gratitude to the PTF Chairman, Mr. Boss Mustapha, and other members for keeping his moral high while in isolation.

In his speech, Mustapha also confirmed that 684 out of the 14,906 Nigerians who were evacuated from other parts of the world in the heat of the pandemic tested positive for COVID-19.

Don’t Reopen Schools Until 2021 – ASUU Tells FG


According to ASUU, they are in full support of the Federal Government’s decision to stop Senior Secondary School 3 pupils from partaking in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination earlier scheduled to commence on August 4.

The union advised the government to shut down schools until 2021 to ensure adequate preparations, citing the case in some countries such as Kenya.

The Federal Ministry of Education met with officials of the West African Examination Council in Abuja and resolved to announce a new date for the examination.

The Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, had also said the government would consult with the four other countries under WAEC to set a new date, while announcing COVID-19 mandatory guidelines for schools which must be kept before July 29.

The ASUU President, Prof Biodun Ogunyemi, who made the recommendations in an interview with Sunday PUNCH, said no reasonable government would take such chances unless parents would be told to sign an undertaking.

Ogunyemi said, “Look, Kenya has said they have closed all their schools till next year (2021); they too have exams to write. Safety first. If it means closing the schools until next year to safeguard the lives of Nigerian children and safeguard the health of all Nigerians, so be it.

“So, if that will help us to address cases that can lead to increase in mortality, I think Nigerians should go that way and all of us should see reason for it. If they need to cancel admission for the year, it is good for them. Life matters first, people must have life first before they can go to university. Are the universities ready to work now?

“Our position is that they should not experiment with the lives of our children. Nobody can tell; the situation may soon normalise and they can do their exams and there is another opportunity for external candidates around November. So, it’s not as if the door is totally closed.”

The ASUU president added that the union had not seen any evidence to show that schools were secured for students to go back.

He said, “The first thing that should be tackled is whether schools are safe. And if the schools are not safe, why do you want to carry out an experiment with the lives of our children? An attempt to send back the children to school at a time there is a spike in COVID-19 cases in Nigeria is like experimenting with the lives of our children.

“If they put all the things in place, including social and physical distancing, sanitisers, kitting the children as we see in other places, decontamination with water flowing in the schools and all the gadgets, why not? So, if government can meet all these conditions, then they can reopen the schools. But if they cannot meet all these conditions, they should not experiment with even 10 students in any school.”

Meanwhile, the National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools has said that its members are ready for school reopening and that as part of measures to curtail the spread of COVID-19, it has directed its members to open schools for about four hours daily.

NAPPS, in an interview with PUNCH oted that since the Federal Government had given the directive on school resumption for terminal classes, it was relating with its members nationwide on a number of safety protocols to put in place.

The NAPSS National President, Chief Yomi Otubela, said, “Our association, as the registered umbrella body of private schools in Nigeria, has been interfacing with Federal Government representatives, including the Ministry of Education and other agencies, concerning how to combat the spread of COVID-19.

“The fact that pupils are returning to school does not mean that we are going to spend the total hours as it used to be in the past. We are considering a little time of about three to four hours in school. This is to ensure that there is no room for children to go on break and play around the premises.

“And we have also discussed with our members that there should be staggered resumption. Staggered resumption means that if the JSS3 class comes to school by 8am, SSS3 can come by 9am and the Primary 6 classes can come by 10am. This is to ensure that we don’t get the entrances and the exits crowded.”

The president noted that schools had been instructed to have infrared thermometers, and also avoid teachers marking students’ books manually.

Government has given school owners up to July 29 to meet all the COVID-19 guidelines released for the safe reopening of schools.

The Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba, made this known today July 17.

According to a statement released by the Ministry of Education’s Director of Information, Ben Goong, the Minister said schools are expected to undertake self-assessment and send feedback to State Ministries of Education, not later than July 29. The Minister added that an official date for safe reopening of schools will be announced once these guidelines have been put in place.

Nwajiuba said the Federal Ministry of Education, consulted widely with the Federal Ministry of Health, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), the Education in Emergencies Working Group before developing and circulating the guidelines issued for the reopening of schools. He added that a mechanism to assess and monitor compliance with the guidelines will be put in place.

“Consultations with relevant stakeholders will be held to review the situation and decide on a specific date for reopening or otherwise.

“Furthermore, the Minister said, having taken the painful but necessary decision not to reopen schools without necessary preparations to ensure the safety of students and teachers, the Federal Ministry of Education has continued consultations with stakeholders, and a mechanism to assess and monitor compliance shall be put in place,” the statement said

Regarding the 2020 WASSCE that has been cancelled, Nwajiuba said

”We met with WAEC on Monday and have agreed to further consult with four other countries on a new examination date. We appreciate the concern shown by all stakeholders and note the divergent views expressed on the matter.

Parents should be rest assured that the safety of our students and teachers is paramount as we work assiduously towards speedy reopening of our schools for the exit classes to take external examinations.”

Atiku Abubakar and Reno Omokri kick against FG’s decision to cancel WASSCE


Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, and former presidential media aide, Reno Omokri, have kicked against the Federal government’s decision to cancel the West African Senior School Certificate Examination WASSCE for this year.

Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu had on Wednesday, July 8, announced that the Federal government will be rescinding its decision to reopen schools for graduating students to take part in the WASSCE examination scheduled for August 4 to September 5. Worried by the increasing number of confirmed Coronavirus cases in the country, Adamu said schools in Nigeria will only be opened when it is safe for students.

However, in a statement released today July 10, Atiku said canceling WASSCE examination puts Nigeria at more risk. He said the decision to cancel the examination which is not meant only for Nigerians, is not in the best interest of the country. His statement reads

”As a parent and investor in the education sector, I wish to register the fact that the Nigerian government’s policy of unilaterally cancelling the West African Senior School Certificate Examination, held annually by the West African Examinations Council, is not in Nigeria’s best interest.

At a time of the global COVID19 pandemic, it is understandable that an abundance of caution be put in place to save lives. However, caution, without consultation, and thoughtful action, may be counter productive.

1.5 million Nigerian youths write the West African Senior School Certificate Examination annually. To abruptly cancel this examination is to set back our nation’s youth, and place them behind their contemporaries in other West African nations. This is perilous, because Foreign Direct Investments and other economic indicators, are tied to the educational indexes of nations.

Already, Nigeria lags behind other African nations in crucial indices, like school enrolment, pass rates, and out of school children. This action, will further create chaos in the public education system and exacerbate an already bad situation.

Rather than cancellation, there are better ways to protect the health of Nigerians and prevent the pandemic from escalating. We could mobilise all available public and private infrastructures including primary schools, stadia, and cinemas, for the examinations. In the alternative, the Federal Government can prevail on WAEC to have a staggered examinations with a different set of questions for each shift. Doing so will allow WAEC Nigeria implement social distancing and achieve the goal of carrying out the examinations. A win-win scenario.

I urge this administration to take into account that the lives they are trying to save will be further put at risk, because if this policy is not reversed, tens of thousands, and possibly hundreds of thousands of Nigerians, will breach social distancing rules to cross over to neighbouring West African nations to write their WASSCE, rather than miss a year.”

Reno in his reaction said Nigeria’s education system does not have the capacity to handle an overwhelming number of students who would be ready to take the examination next year. He wrote

1.5 million Nigerians write WASSCE every year. Nigeria does not have the capacity to hold WAEC exams for 3 million people next year. What this means is that, if this policy is not reversed, every Nigerian child will miss a year, not just the final year students.

Edo has 2,210,534 voters, while Ondo has 1,822,346. A total of 4,032,880. WAEC has 1.5 million registered students in Nigeria. WAEC exams takes 5 hours. Voting takes all day. So, what is the rationale for suspending WASSCE, yet go on with Edo and Ondo elections?

Ghana opened schools for final year students and confirmed that WAEC examinations will hold. Meanwhile, Nigeria suspended WAEC exams. That is because Ghana’s President, @NAkufoAddo is a graduate of @UniofOxford,  and General @MBuhari has questionable WAEC status!”he tweeted

My Nurse friend Revealed Totally Natural Solution That Help Men Get Stronger Erections, Last 25minutes plus and Increase size without side effects

Some few years ago, before I met my wife and got married to her… I travelled to another state for some work and business.

Coincidentally, I met with an ex-girlfriend, who happens to now be a nurse.

Truth is, we have been in love during our university days. As a guy at that time, on a normal level, I invited her to the apartment-homes where I lounged.

When she came, we talked, ate our meals together. Everything was going as planned, until we started kissing and smooching.

But unfortunately for me, my mind could not go away from the fact that my manhood refused to get or maintain a normal erection. I felt so uncomfortable and desperate.

During the foreplay, she was in total control.

She pulled off her dress, pulled off my shirt, and then pull off my boxers… then all of a sudden, I looked at her face.

And noticed a sudden change in expression (from excitement to disappointment).

She became sad and unhappy because I could not get erect and probably it was ‘too small’ like that of a 5 year old primary school boy.

That day, I felt as if the ground should open and swallow me, because the shame was just too much for me.

I will come back tell you the entire gist…

Let’s cut long story short… my nurse friend simply explained
that here are 3 things that can cause a man not to get
proper erection, and release too fast:

1) Destroying your body response with bad habits like smoking and drinking too much alcohol, excessive masturbation

2) Poor exercise and sedentary lifestyle

3) Taking too much foods and drinks that contains sugar

Like it or not, most of the foods we eat these days, are processed foods, canned foods, pastries and pizzas that contains too much chemical ingredients and way too much sugar that kill your natural vigor and manpower.

That was when my nurse friend recommended a NAFDAC approved and certified herbal remedy that helps men get stronger erections, last 25minutes and improves libido.

To continue reading my story, and see the recommended solution to get stamina to last 25minutes+ in bed, get harder erections, and also get the herbal remedy that ends poor bedroom performance of a 1-minute man… CLICK HERE

Professor Tells FG The Right Time To Reopen Schools


Professor of Educational Management, Sidikat Ijaiya, has asked the federal government to ensure that proper assessment was done before schools are permitted to reopen.Ijaijya on Wednesday warned that such assessment should be completed ahead resumption of students to avoid widespread coronavirus infections.The former Deputy Vice-Chancellor – Academics, University of Ilorin, told newsmen in the Kwara State capital, that in spite of fear, something has to be done for schools to resume.She observed that private schools online lessons were working for parents and students in urban areas, while the rural dweller are left out“In any case, online lessons cannot take the place of face-to-face teaching in the education of young citizens, so, it is inevitable,” NAN quoted her as saying.She urged all Nigerians to “speak up on the side of education, especially to assist the government on possible strategies to adopt in the reopening of schools without an upsurge in the spread of the pandemic”.The don said the challenges of Nigerian are worrisome already without the COVID-19 pandemic.She highlighted them as overcrowded classrooms, poor sitting arrangement, stuffy classrooms, poor infrastructure, poor hygiene, shortage of classrooms and teachers.“There are classes with 50 to 150 students, especially in big towns and cities. Pupils are sitting on mats and bare floors in some schools. How do we manage that in the face of the pandemic,” she said.On the Presidential Task Force (PTF) position on reopening, Ijaiya said “even though there is no date yet and the trend of the new spread does not look favourable, now is the time for Nigerians to speak up because it affects all of us.”The Professor advised the federal government to consider staggered/gradual approach, as suggested by the PTF, starting with SS3 students due for public examinations.She said this help to determine whether there is a need for staggered classes, as per morning and afternoon shifts.Ijaiya suggested that towards that end of the exam, all schools, “including the tertiary ones, can be mandated to prepare a draft of how they would manage social distancing and other aspects to prevent any spread of the pandemic”.She said that before resumption, teachers should receive thorough orientation on COVID-19 to allay their fears and to take precaution seriously as well as for information on what to do if they suspect a case.Ijaiya stated that the first few days of resumption of students should be spent on the same orientation and that there should be no assumption that the students know all about COVID-19.“In addition, schools will need some palliatives, not just food: more good teachers, classrooms, chairs and desks, sanitisers, soap, regular water supply, facemasks, wash hand bowls, towels, clean toilets, etc”, she said.

Monica-Mutsvangwa-660x400-1

FG postponed the reopening of schools from 29 June See New Date.


The government has postponed the reopening of schools from 29 June to 28 July to allow education and treasury authorities to mobilise for the provision of adequate resources.

This was said by the Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Monica Mutsvangwa while addressing the media during a post-Cabinet briefing this Tuesday in Harare.

Mutsvangwa said:

“In line with His Excellency, the President’s decision that schools should start re-opening, Cabinet resolved that the re-opening of schools be moved from the proposed 29 June to 28 July 2020 to allow the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education to engage treasury and other stakeholders to mobilise for the provision of adequate resources.”

“However, the decision to re-open schools does not affect the June examinations which will run from 29 June to 22 July, as initially announced.”

“Primary and Secondary Education Minister Cain Mathema said an average of 11 candidates will sit at each examination centre to enable social distancing to be observed-State media”

IPPIS: ASUU threatens to go on strike over withheld January salaries

The leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has threatened the association will embark on a Nationwide strike if the Federal government does not fail to rescind its decision to withhold the January salaries of lecturers yet to enroll in the Integrated Payroll Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

 

The Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation, in a letter dated Tuesday, January 21st and signed by the Director of IPPIS, Olufehinti Olusegun, directed the Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning not to release funds for the payment of January salaries of academic staff of universities, polytechnics and colleges of education yet to enroll on the IPPIS platform. Read initial report here.

 

ASUU President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi, who faulted the government for taking such decision while still in talks with the union, said if such decision is not reviewed, lecturers in the university system would be left with no other choice than to down tools. According to him, the union and the Federal government are still in talks over the IPPIS policy and withholding salaries when dialogue is still being held is inappropriate.

 

“We didn’t take part in that decision. What we were expecting them to do was to allow the ongoing discussion to run its full course. Now that we are reading about this in the media, it’s as if some elements in government are trying to sabotage the process.  We came out of the meeting with Mr. President believing that they will give us room to explain how the UTAS will better address our peculiarities and autonomy than IPPIS. However, they have not allowed that to happen. We suspect it’s due to the activities of some individuals or groups that are trying to sabotage the process.

“If they push us to the point of taking our final decision about it, we too will tell them ‘no pay, no work’ because we have a resolution that is on ground already. The resolution we took long time ago, which we reactivated at our meeting in Minna last month. So, whichever way they want to go, ASUU will rise to the challenge.” he said in a chat with The New Telegraph

 

 

On whether the union would issue an ultimatum to government to reverse its decision, Ogunyemi said: “I have worked for one month somebody is saying you are not paying me for that month, do I need to give you ultimatum to tell you that I can no longer work until you pay me?”
