the porn industry: influence on society morals

The porn industry in America is a thriving business which every dick, Tom and Harry is getting themselves into all for the sake of the popularity and the money which is involved. They all wanna make it very big, and the stars of the screens that they have there are all becoming the very embodiments of what the church and common Christianity abhors greatly. Talk of the likes of Nicki Minaj who is so surgically altered to become the very embodiment of the porn industry that the people are seeking out and they all love her very much and cherish her for the fact that she’s the sexual equivalent of an inflatable doll on the screens for them to ogle and wish they can fuck and get away with the fact since there’s the fake appeal that she offers to the viewing public.
Everybody is exposed to the pornography that is being dispensed across all the media types and there is nothing to be done about it by the viewers, some of whom even stumble upon the thing in the course of an honest internet search for something that will serve a great need for their lives.
And one would be very tempted to ask the burning question as to what the people that view the porn being churned out by both the professional actors and the amateurs that we have all over the place who are seeking their own little spot in the limelight with the best of them. There are the pictures of the stars all nude and done up in sexually provocative poses that have men having hard-ons for them at the mere sight of the nude bodies that are being churned out all over the place. We have the likes of our bad girl Rihanna posing and having Google turn up millions of hits per day for her nude body and her bum; we also have the likes of Nicki Minaj, Madonna herself who was the poster bad girl of the eighties and the nineties. And I ask again: are these celebrities trying to dabble into the porn industry that the common people have already filled to overflowing?
The average 15 year old boy has seen porn a total of not less than fifty times per month. Is this the trend that is to be supported by the people who are now screaming that their children are becoming too sexually active at very young ages?
The answer is too ridiculously simple: there is a glorification of the fact that a man and a woman or a woman and another woman or a man and another man or a mixture of the both, are having raunchy sex which will then be forwarded up to the internet with a single click.
Morality and decadence are now glorified beyond the goodness that is supposed to be the very milestone for the kids to grow up on. They now grow up on a rich diet of nude bodies and is that the very ideal that should be promoted? Move over, Briana Banks, and do you know why? It is because of the fact that the young ones are all taking over from the older ones in the porn industry. Just take out the time to perform a very simple Google search for the latest porn from the under-age category and the hits you’ll see for the sexual exploits of a young girl from a rural town in Minnesota will completely eclipse the hits gotten by a Nobel prize winner who wants to do something to the world and for the world. Is that funny? Or is it hot? Or is it some thing that the parents of the young kids of today should be very worried about in their beds as they sleep?
WHAT DO YOU THINK????

Nnamdi Kanu Bail conditions: Constitutional or onerous?

Nnamdi Kanu Bail Conditions: onerous or constitutional?

By

Kingsley Ugochukwu Ani Esq. (LLB., BL.)

Introduction

Bail is simply a process or procedure whereby a person who has been denied of his constitutional right to freedom of movement (in other words, incarcerated due to the alleged commission of one crime or the other) is released upon security provided by him to the tune of the order of the court or any other body that has the authority to grant such bail application.

 

The case of Nnamdi Kanu who has been granted bail on April 25th, 2017.

 

The Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja, has granted Nnamdi Kanu bail in his long trial for charges bordering on treasonable felony. The justice, Justice Binta Nyako, while granting the bail application by the counsel to Nnamdi Kanu, on health grounds, ordered that he be released on bail on the following grounds:

  1. That he provide a highly respected Jewish leader as a shorty for his bail
  2. That he provide a ‘highly placed person of Igbo extraction such as a Senator’ as well as a ‘highly respected person who is resident in and owns landed property in Abuja’.

Each of the sureties to be provided by Nnamdi Kanu is to make a deposit of N100 million each for his release. He has also_ as part of the conditions for his bail_been precluded from attending any rally or granting interviews to members of the press. He is to also surrender his British and Nigerian international passports to the registry of the court.

Thoughts on the Bail Conditions

First and foremost, it is to be noted that the Federal High Court (or any other court for that matter, so long as it has the jurisdiction to try the offence) can impose whatever bail conditions it wishes on the bail applicant, taking into cognizance such factors as the nature of the offence, the ability of the applicant to influence witnesses and/or evidence due to high standing in the society, and a host of other factors.

However, at all times, courts are expected to ensure that the conditions imposed by them for granting a bail application are reasonable and not onerous, such that the applicants can be able to meet up with the conditions in order to secure their freedom and be free from the clutches of the prison yard.

Please note that the operative word here is Onerous; that the conditions set for the bail of the applicant are not onerous.

 

Question:

In the above case of Nnamdi Kanu, is the bail condition imposed by the Federal High Court too stringent and onerous?

A bail application if and when sought by an accused person is simply to further the provisions of Section 35 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria; to seek the enforcement of said rights and secure the freedom of the person in question.

 

Is Nnamdi Kanu’s Bail terms onerous?

The question of whether or not the bail terms imposed on an accused person is onerous or too stringent depends on the peculiar circumstances of each case before the court.

In the case of Nnamdi Kanu’s bail application, several persons spanning the entire length and breadth of Nigeria, has taken to Social Media to protest that the bail terms imposed upon the Leader of the Independent People of Biafra are too stringent for him to meet. N300 million is too much a sum of money, as well as the insistence of the Justice that he provide a Jewish leader as a surety. Is there any law in Nigeria that provides for such? Surely that is unreasonable? In my own opinion, it is.

What if he is unable to procure a Jewish leader as a surety? He remains in prison?

Yes, if Nnamdi Kanu is unable to provide a Jewish leader, a person resident in, and with property in Abuja, and a person of high standing in the Igbo community, all of them to provide the combined sum of three hundred million naira, then Nnamdi Kanu is going to remain in prison.

 

Steps to take:

If the Counsel to Nnamdi Kanu considers the bail terms to be too stringent and draconian, then they can apply to have the terms varied for the leader to something they consider reasonable enough for them to put up with. For, as the famous saying goes: if the bail terms granted to an applicant are too draconian such that he cannot meet them, then it means that no bail was granted.

 

Further thoughts:

Nnamdi Kanu had been granted bail in the past, yet the Muhammad Buhari led administration consistently refused to allow him to leave the clutches of the Kuje prison in Abuja, dredging up a plethora of excuses pertaining to why he should remain in prison custody. The Federal Government blatantly disregarded the rule of law.

In this new bail granted to Nnamdi Kanu, will the Rule of Law prevail? Or will the Buhari-led government decide once again to keep the man trapped in the clutches of Federal prison?

How to use social media for career success

HOW TO LEVERAGE SOCIAL MEDIA FOR CAREER SUCCESS

 

When you contact a person_a professional_for the very first time, the one thing that professional is going to do is to research you online. The person is not going to say anything to you; rather, that person will simply type whatever name you had addressed yourself to them as into Google or any of the other search engines available. In other words, they are going to engage in some cyber snooping of who you are. I remember contacting someone once about submitting a particular material I needed from him to me, and within fifteen minutes of his receiving my email, I received a Google Alert from Google, notifying me that someone had searched for Ugochukwu Kingsley Ani. it made me smile because I would have done exactly the same thing if someone were to contact me out of the blue.

When they search for you, what do they see? Nothing? Someone that is not you? Or, even worse, no information at all?

Well then, what impression do you think that is going to give to them about you? That person might then not take you serious or your services serious if you are offering something to them.

So, now that we have established the background, let us go in deeper and talk about the ways you leverage social media in your professional life to your advantage. Underlisted is a checklist of things to do:

Routinely search for your name on search engines.

This might sound weird, and I can bet you, it is weird, but searching for your name on search engines is going to notify you of the kind of online visibility you have; if any. You might have a LinkedIn account, a business Linkedin account, Facebook account, among others, but when you type in the requisite name you will see something that is totally unrelated to your name; or you can find your name buried in perhaps the tenth or fifteenth page of Google.

That should send a red flag waving in your consciousness. You know why? It is because 90% of visitors to search engines hardly ever go beyond the 2nd page of their search before they click on what they need and forget all about the other search results that might run into the remaining thousands of pages.

This should give you an idea pertaining to where you stand.

Create a web site for your business

I think I will be right to say that the Internet and businesses have gotten married in recent years, with one dependent on the other…perhaps even more than we know.

As a business owner, it is imperative for a professional with diverse services that might be of help to paying clients to have their online visibility already prepared on the Information Superhighway Ether.

Nowadays, most clients_particularly the ones that are tech-savvy_will hardly do business with an analogue practitioner. They want professionals that are smart as well savvy and up to date with the times.

You need to create a site and not only display the requisite information about your business (which you must do, by the way), but also display a wealth of information about the services you provide and other allied matters.

For example: a medical health practitioner with particular focus on optometry should have a site that details this information, plus also offer a lot of information on the problems of patients relating to that field of practice. That way, clients can search for you and they can find you. Then, if you are within their location (or even outside it), they can always call you or email you, seeking for consultations. You have shown that you are an expert in your field and people love to deal with people that are competent at what they do.

Alternatively, create a personal/professionally branded blog

You may not have the money and vast technological resources to create a big web site for your practise. But then you can still create a blog. Blogger is free to use; WordPress has amazing, over-the-top options for personal blogs which you can create using whatever specifications and themes that will be more suited to your needs.

Create a Brand

You know that niche that you are into. If you are a lawyer, then this post: The Eight Beatitudes: Lessons from Lincoln, written by Joseph Onele and published on my blog: Kingsley Ugochukwu Ani L.P. can help you with the branding.

The point is this: know you field, then work on it. You know about your profession more than I do. So, create a personal brand that speaks for that profession for which you are known for, then brand yourself appropriately using the tools listed above. Know the kind of contents to create, know the image you will use to project the image of a seasoned professional in his element to the world.

Then, once you have determined your niche and possibly how to go about it, you can now start creating the necessary content and marketing yourself and your business in order to gain visibility and even clients.

That way, you win.

Final Tips

In order to make it on social media as it pertains to your career, you have to create a social media strategy and make sure you stick to that strategy. Please note that being able to navigate Facebook and Twitter, looking up and gisting with friends, does not mean that you have a social media strategy or that you an market yourself. No; far from it. Things to do:

  1. Build an online profile: note that almost all tech-savvy recruiting firms will conduct a search for you if and when they want to do business with you or if they want to hire you.
  2. Create a strong LinkedIn profile: I think I am going to emphasize on this more than on the previous one. Why? I search out every single person I want to contact on a career related matter. I will not tell you, but I will do it.

And if I do it, then please note that others will do it too.

Make sure that your LinkedIn profile is professional-looking and up-to-date with relevant information because of the fact that it is like your online CV. Yes, your CV. People will go through it before dealing with you.

You don’t have a LinkedIn profile? Please create one.

You have a LinkedIn profile but don’t use it? Please update it and keep it top-notch. You never know who might be sniffing you out from there.

Well, I hope this was enjoyable to you.

Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline| a review

Ready Player One.

That is what introduces the user to the world of the OASIS in Ernest Cline’s utopia novel Ready Player One.

In a world where the energy reserves have gone down and the world economic system is slightly paralysed, users on Earth are introduced into an online utopia where they can do anuthing; where they can study and walk and drive freely without the constraints of Earth’s new physical and economic restrictions. They are in their own utopia.

And then there is the hunt for the builder of the OASIS easter eggs by gunters intent on winning the prize and being the inheritors of the man’s vast, sprawling empire.

In Ernest Cline’s work we have a world-within-a-world structure.

Lovers of the utopia and dystopia and science fiction genre will find this book all to their taste.

But I don’t really. I mean, it reads slowly, like every day conversation rammed up with eighties games and other trivia and the characters trying to one-up each other. All in their virtual reality world, that is.

Over Information

This book, though enjoyable I am its bits and pieces, contains a lot of over information and tecno-babble that the book could have easily done without.

The overload of information made the book an indefatigable bore. Honestly, the encyclopedic incursion into the eighties world and a whole lot of other trivia was unnecessary and could have been dispensed with easily and the book would not have missed a bit. It’s like he and Anne Rice had the same editor that edited nothing and left the entire ramblings untrimmed. Dear Lord.

The Quest

However, from the moment Watt discovers where to go for the quest of Halliday’s Copper Key, the story seems to pick up the slack and move forward…

And move forward… And move forward.

The story rode on a heavy crescendo of hard techno war within the virtual real world. To this effect, Ernest Cline had done great really, because the story now speeds along pretty quickly, a now amazing read from the initial bore it was.

And then the continued unraveling of the story and the quest… One magnificent quest for control of something that will control the entire dystopia physical world of Earth and the get-away utopia world of the OASIS.

Seriously, Ernest Cline really tried well in Ready Player One.

I will recommend this for virtual reality lovers.

How to earn free Bitcoins

What is Bitcoin
Like the name suggests, it is a coin, but in digital form, not physical. It exists in cyberspace, and Bitcoin has consistently proved to be the highest crypto currency in the whole world now because everyone wants to have at least one bitcoin.

It is worthy to note that people are gradually moving away from all things analogue and becoming mired in their digital counterparts. Now, with the unsteady nature of the dollar and other international currencies at the exchange, plus the fact that the third-party money transfer networks charge a lot in order to effect international money transfers, everybody has run into cryptocurrencies. That is the new deal right now: cryptocurrencies.

WHAT IS CRYPTOCURRENCY?

It is simply money in digital form, on open source blockchain networks that allow people to trade for them with other coins or the normal fiat currencies available, or to even earn them freely of charge through websites that give out thousands of whatever cryptocurrencies they deal in; there is also cryptocurrency mining. That is what makes it perfect: it is not money you have to carry around with you in your pockets, neither is there any limits to the transactions you can make with them. They are not subject to the normal laws; nobody can stop you from trading with them; nobody can monitor transactions you make online with for example bitcoin(BTC), litecoin (LTC), Ethereum, The Billion Coin(BTC), Ripple, Monero, and other cryptocurrencies.

YOU DON’T HAVE A BITCOIN WALLET? NO PROBLEM, CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR ONE

Transactions with bitcoins and the likes of it are transacted on the Internet between peers_ it is peer-to-peer_ and there is nothing that can stop you. There are no transaction costs whatever; no government secret agencies can be snooping into your bitcoin wallet or your litecoin wallet. To this effect, a person can even launder huge sums of money across international borders and there is no way it can be detected.

HOW TO EARN FREE BITCOINS

When Bitcoins were introduced in 2009, they went for the ridiculous price of $0.09 dollar per one bitcoin. Now, they are valued at close to a $1,000 USD as at the time of writing this post. Imagine what it would have been like for someone to have invested a thousand dollars then in Bitcoins_ do you know how rich that person would be now? That person would be a multi-millionaire, and if you are Nigerian, then you are a multi billionaire. People now want to buy Bitcoins, but they are quite expensive; the value has appreciated to over a thousand times what it was like eight years ago.

WANT TO EARN FREE BITCOINS? THEN CLICK HERE!

However, there are ways to earn free Bitcoins. Several sites give incentives for people to earn units of the Bitcoin in what is called Satoshi or Bitcoin Faucets.

NB: there are a 100, 000 000 satoshis in one Bitcoin, and though this may ordinarily seem daunting to the average person who wants to have a Bitcoin, you can earn thousands of satoshi units in one day, accumulating them to the point that they will one day reach a single Bitcoin.

TO EARN FREE BITCOIN UNITS, CLICK HERE

It is quite easy to earn free Bitcoin units, called satoshi which can accumulate to become one bitcoin. That was how I earned my first Bitcoin units, and now, I have quite a little best egg of satoshi units that I keep on selling all the time.

Hehehe.

That’s the fun of it.

What are you waiting for? Follow this link to register and earn free Bitcoins here.

Want to buy The Billion Coin? Then Whatsapp me on +2347035074930 or email aniugochukwu@gmail.com… Note that I however prefer a trade of these coins with Bitcoin.
