“Your user agreement sucks” Sen. John Kennedy tells Facebook CEO

Sen. John Kennedy had a blunt message for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg: “Your user agreement sucks.” He said that’s what everybody has been trying to tell him today. “You can spot me 75 IQ points. If I can figure it out, you can figure it out,” Kennedy said. “The purpose of that user agreement is to cover Facebook’s rear-end. It’s not to inform your users about their rights. Now, you know that and I know that. I am going to suggest to you that you go back home and you rewrite it and tell your $1,200-an hour lawyers, no disrespect, they’re good, but tell them that you want it written in English and non-Swahili, so the average American can understand it. That would be a start.” The Louisiana Republican told Zuckerberg he can either spend millions of dollars to fight new legislation to regulate Facebook or help Congress solve the problem. He said there are two problems with Facebook: privacy and propaganda. Kennedy told Zuckerberg he was disappointed with the hearing because he felt like they were not connecting. “I think you are a really smart guy and I think that you have built an extraordinary American company and you’ve done a lot of good,” Kennedy said. “Some of the things you’ve been able to do are magical, but our promised digital utopia, we have discovered, has minefields. There are some impurities in the Facebook punchbowl and they got to be fixed, and I think you can fix them.” WATCH NOW

Beyoncé and Jay-Z celebrate 10 years marriage anniversary

Beyoncé and Jay-Z celebrate 10 years marriage anniversary It all began in October 2001, when Destiny’s Child and Jay-Z both had to play the post-9/11 “Concert for New York City” benefit at Madison Square Garden, and that was where it all began, that’s reportedly where they had a real, face-to-face conversation for the very first time. He asked for her number and you can picture the rest. Time flew and things went by, memories and conversations, shows and tours came and gone and on April 4, 2008, they decided to pick a ‘VI’ tattoo instead of a ring as a token of their love. A decade ago today, the two quietly wed in front of family and friends, formally solidifying a romance that had already long dominated public curiosity. A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on Apr 4, 2017 at 11:59am PDT Despite many scandals, lies and media controversies, the couple is standing tall. “I live so I can die with you.” It was on this day last year that Beyoncé commemorated her wedding anniversary with a song dedicated to her partner, husband, right-hand man, Jay-Z. “I don’t have a reason to be, if I can’t be with you and I don’t need air in my lungs, if I can’t sing your song,” the track went. “No, I don’t need hands if I don’t get to keep you warm and I don’t really need myself, if I don’t need you.”

Unbelievable !!! See what killed MMM founder Sergei Mavrodi

Russian businessman Sergei Mavrodi, whose MMM pyramid scheme deprived millions of Russians of their savings in the 1990s, died of a heart attack, according to Russian media. According to reports, the 62-year-old man was taken to the hospital on March 25 with chest pain and died several hours later. The MMM financial pyramid of Mavrodi was a typical Ponzi scheme in which previous investors receive their profits from subsequent investors. Mavrodi promised yields of 20 to 75 percent per month, as well as lotteries and bonds for investors. As soon as the number of new clients stopped growing, the pyramid collapsed, causing huge financial losses for at least 10 million people, in some cases leaving them destitute. In 1994, Mavrodi was elected as a legislator, a decision he later said was to ensure that he received judicial immunity. In 1996, he lost his parliamentary mandate. In 2007, a Moscow court found him guilty of financial fraud and sentenced him to 4 and a half years in a penal colony. In 2011, Mavrodi launched another pyramid scheme called MMM-2011, asking investors to buy the so-called Mavro currency units in an attempt to get rid of the “disloyal” financial system. About 15 months later, Mavrodi stopped the project. From 2011-16, Mavrodi launched Ponzi schemes under the MMM brand in India, China, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Nigeria. In many of these countries, Mavrodi’s operations were closed or suspended later. Sergei Mavrodi founder of MMM, a ponzi scheme died of a heart attack in a Russian hospital in Moscow.

Prayers for Strength

Have you ever needed supernatural strength to face a situation head-on, but not known what to pray? God is waiting and wants to offer us strength in time of need. Do not be afraid to pray and ask God for His strength to fall upon you! When you are weak, weary or unready to stand, and unsure of what to ask, pray along with these words!  Here is a Prayer for Strength Lord, I’m weary. My energy is sagging, and my motivation is lagging. And I am so in need of you. I need your strength and your fresh touch to get back on track again. Your Word says the joy of the Lord is my strength. If that’s true, then I need your joy to replace all the bone-tired parts of my mind, body, and soul. The pressures of life sometimes push me into a corner, rendering me helpless to move forward. A hundred voices call my name, and I feel paralyzed at times to answer, not knowing where to turn. Lord, help me not to quit, to keep running the race faithfully, and to find strength in that safe, secret place of yours, under the shadow of the Almighty. I need your strength to say no when I’m tempted to surrender to harmful things, or when selfishness clings to my clothes and won’t let go. I need your strength to say yes, when cowardice and fear nudge me to deny the convictions of my heart. I need your strength to reach out in love to those both close to me and all around me. When don’t I need your strength, God? You are my rock, and I run to you today, believing that you will lift up my heavy arms, that you will fuel me for the tasks you’ve given me, and that your joy will completely consume the weakness of my life and make me strong again. I don’t want to stay grounded, crippled by limitations and failed attempts. I’m tired of feeble efforts. Lord, I want to mount up with wings like an eagle and not just fly. I want to soar. Renew my strength, Lord. Fill me with your supernatural power to overcome each obstacle in my path. With my eyes on you, Lord, with you walking beside me, working through me, I can make it. Thank you, Lord! In Jesus’s name, Amen

Atiku Shares 5 lessons he learnt from the movie #Blackpanther

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has shared some lessons he learned from the movie, ‘Black Panther’. Atiku who went with his kids to the cinema to watch the movie said he is pleased with how the thoughts of Africans solving African problems were portrayed in the movie. In his remarks, he said “When the first scenes came up, and I saw “Sambisa Forest”, I was unhappy that the only reference the film-makers could have for Nigeria was a negative one, but I was later encouraged by the thought of Africans solving African problems. “That is a good thing, the kinds of things we used to do. For young people who may not remember, Nigerian civil servants and indeed most able citizens used to contribute money every month to support the struggle against Apartheid in South Africa. “Nigeria was the single stabilizing force across West Africa. Helping to restore peace in Liberia and Sierra Leone are examples of the gigantic status we once had.” “Seeing another African country come play ‘Big Brother’ to Nigeria made me very sad. We must return to a place of respect. We may argue that the film is a work of fiction, but there are many truths in the story. One of them is that young girls are being abducted by terrorists across the northeastern region of Nigeria, and they need to be rescued. “Only recently, a band of terrorists stormed another girls’ school in Dapchi, Yobe State. After days of confusing information, it is now confirmed that 110 girls are missing. Nigeria has once again been thrown into sorrow with many of us wishing that there was indeed a ‘Black Panther’ to help rescue the girls. Here are my takeaways on Black Panther: Institutions are important “Wakanda was portrayed as a technological giant, which was ruled by great kings, supported by a council, and traditions are held in high esteem. But it was easy to see that most of the decisions are those of the king, which presents serious institutional problems. Institutional order in the dispensation of justice could have helped handle the betrayal of Wakanda by the king’s brother, which would have prevented the hatred of Wakanda which filled the heart of the nephew who was left behind”. “The succession system is also another example of institutional weakness in Wakanda. The young man from America came in and within days, destroyed the long-standing institutions, even when he seemed to be trying to help Black people all over the world”. “In one moment of folly, he decided to destroy the garden that guarantees powers to every other king of the future. Should there not have been a process whereby a council needs to approve the King’s orders before they are carried out? Institutions are better guarantors of good governance than kings or strong men/women.” “Checks and balances are important in leadership. This is why democracy is important. As a Nigerian who has lived through many dictatorships, I would have liked Wakandans to adopt a new model, which gives them a say in who leads them, as well as includes checks and balances. This would at least ensure the country against the rise of tyrants and demagogues.” Killmonger’s liberation philosophy was terrible “The most successful tyrants always have simple philosophies, which on the surface appear good. We only see the deviousness of the plan after a second look.” “Many people would be drawn to the message of black liberation that the young American returnee preached, but closer scrutiny reveals that it wasn’t liberation he was preaching, but reverse oppression. When the oppressed becomes the oppressor, has justice really been done or are we just exchanging one evil for another? Nigeria’s hope is Nigerians “One of Wakanda’s most valuable resources was mentioned in the film, but not shown. Many Wakandans abroad providing intelligence to their country back home. There’s enough Nigerian talent abroad to turn our country into a technology and industry giant. The question then is how we can make the environment conducive for them to return and contribute to its growth and development. “During my time in government, mining the ‘natural resource’ of Nigerians in the Diaspora was an important part of our strategy, bringing back Nigerians who had established themselves abroad to come home to work. Sadly, many of those people who came back have packed up and returned abroad. We are losing professionals in all sectors in their droves every month, at the fastest rate not seen since the 1980s. ‘We cannot build the Nigeria of our dreams without keeping our best people in the country and empowering them to work and build businesses. We cannot keep our people healthy when the best of our medical professionals are being forced to pack up and leave. We always need strategic alliances “One of my favorite characters in the film was Mbaku, the big chief of the mountain tribe. He sounded and acted very Nigerian, which made me like him a lot. His alliance with T’Challa was very innocuous?—?having failed to defeat the new king in the challenge for the throne, the king encouraged him to give up, that he will be useful to the king in the future. That little moment is the reason Wakanda was saved later in the film. “As a Nigerian, I always wonder how much stronger our regional leadership would be if we built better alliances. Nigerian soldiers spent most of the 90s and 2000s helping stabilize West Africa. Wouldn’t it be in our interest to strengthen our influence on the basis of those sacrifices? “Women in Africa get things done” “One important thing I noticed in Wakanda was the strong role of women in all aspects?—?defense, technology, leadership, spiritual leadership, among others.” ‘When there was trouble, the women of Wakanda didn’t just stand by, they found a way. I remember in the mid-90s when many of Nigeria’s leading democracy activists were running away in crates and bush border crossings, (I also miraculously escaped), the women were there to save us. Women were either helping the movement go underground, or taking up the fight. It would be a disservice to Nigerian women, if we speak about June 12, without mentioning the role of Kudirat Abiola. I was honored to present a posthumous award to MKO Abiola’s family during the recently held Silverbird Man of the Year Awards, and I wish more awards will go to the women who often led or supported the pro-democracy movement.” “I finished the Black Panther movie wondering how much better our country would be if we let more women into leadership. We are losing up to 40% of our productivity because we still haven’t fully integrated our women into economic and socio-political leadership. “But I was also left thinking, what if the king’s first child was a girl; would Wakandans support her to be Black Panther?”
