Empowering Youth Through Sports for Development and Peace
01. December 2019 at 09:00
by Maulline Gragau
When I think of the power of sport in achieving youth development and peace, the infamous film Invictus comes to mind. Invictus is a remarkably inspiring true story of how the late former South African President Nelson Mandela joined forces with 1995 South African National Rugby team captain, Francois Pienaar, to unite a country divided along racial and economic lines.

On 24 June 1995, Pienaar led his team, the Springboks, to win their first Rugby World Cup by beating New Zealand, 15-12, in a memorable final played at Ellis Park in Johannesburg. The result was more than a win for South Africa as it unleashed a wave of goodwill and nation-building across the country which a year earlier had celebrated democracy following decades of racial segregation. The result was more than a win for South Africa as it unleashed a wave of goodwill and nation-building across the country which a year earlier had celebrated democracy following decades of racial segregation.


It is therefore not surprising to see Pienaar’s excitement when 24 years later, the Springboks under the leadership of Siya Kolisi (the Springboks’ fir...

Of Social Vices and Youth
27. November 2019 at 09:01
by Abdulwaheed Sofiullahi
It's an article that tells the tale of a notorious Nigeria burger, who developed his inevitable interest. It shows the way of this inevitably inevitable problem in the society. The article also treats different things that causes social vices in our society.

Meanwhile, it's worthwhile before I proceed that the phrase "social vices" be expantiated. ''Vices", according to Wikipedia dictionary,it's a latin word -'vitium' which means defect or failing. Therefore, social vices are bad traits, unhealthy and negative behavior, that agree against the morality of a society and frowned at, by members of the society.


 For those who have ears to hear, and of course those who blind but not mindedly, would sense menace should we continue mistaken right for wrong and wrong the rights. Though ,not all who engage in what society frowns at, are of willingness but just as a say has it -" Show me your friend,and I will tell who you are". Through chosen a wrong friend , a semblance of soap and leave as different entities which become one,when stitched together for long.

Life is in stages. Every stage requires time, patience, commitment, hard work and determination. The beginning of every stage is not always easy and exciting but it is always demanding(afterall, nothing good comes easy).

Your end can be greater than your beginning!!


Many people most times feel that they are of no good simply because their first attempt did not go as plan. Often, they compare themselves to many others who may have past that stage Of their life. Both consciously and unconsciously they admire them and may inadvertently wish they are them.


Frequently, they forget that the people they so much admire now were once in their shoes, they have also been told "No", "you are not getting it", you're not good enough countless times. Regardless of all these, they Pushed on.


It is germane to establish here, that there are stages in life. To attain the height, you must have to start from the beginning. This is unarguably true because you can not build an upstair(house) without first building a dow...

Impeachment Inquiry - Will president Trump escape?
18. November 2019 at 22:02
by Dickson Eyinmosan Jnr.
Impeachment from time immemorial results more from a political undercurrent than any other smoke screen make-believe objective. However, according to the given specific grounds as stated in the constitution which includes treason, bribery, high crimes and misdemeanor, both the Senate and the House must state beyond every reasonable doubt that an elected official have fallen short of any of the listed grounds.

From the Crimea to Washington, the dramatic unfolding of events as it happens in real time has continued to attract both startling remarks and baffling attention. Similar to what is attainable in a box office thriller, the melodramatic events currently playing out at the United States most treasured building calls for a cursory look with serious concern. 


From been a reality TV showman to becoming the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump has continuously hobnobs through scandals and controversies since his official assumption into office on January 20th 2017. From the sublime to the ridiculous president Trump alongside his henchmen has continue to stir the ship of states through unparalleled affinity for unethical conduct and unbridled disregard for standard and convent...

Some Jeff Bezos Quotes That Are Gospel For Every Entrepreneur
10. November 2019 at 12:20
by Kunal Bansal Chandigarh
Jeff Bezos needs no introduction, but just for sake of it, here it is. Jeff Preston Bezos is the chief executive officer, president, and founder of Amazon.com. It’s not a surprise that Amazon is the biggest e-commerce website in the world. After all, the business helped Jeff Bezos in surpassing Bill Gates to become the richest person in the world.

Jeff Bezos collected all of his life’s work and put it into one thing, his dream to make things available for everyone. Online shopping is a big thing nowadays and Jeff Bezos can easily be crowned the king and I believe that everyone will agree with this statement. The best part about him is that he isn’t stopping and I don’t think that he ever will. It’s one thing being the richest in the world, but if you surpass someone to become the richest, that’s on a whole other level.


The chief executive officer of Amazon.com doesn’t only have the power to inspire his employees, he has the power to inspire the whole world with his legacy. The things he has done, is doing, and will do, will keep inspiring a lot of people. Not only his actions but even the things he says are filled with motivation and inspira...

Yet Another Tragic End To A Great Life: Cokie Roberts Passes Away At 75
01. November 2019 at 09:00
by Mohit Bansal Chandigarh
Mary Roberts was (it hurts saying ‘was’) an American journalist and a best-selling author. She was famously known as ‘Cokie Roberts’. She said that she got the name Cokie from his elder brother and it stuck with her. Mary Martha Corinne Morrison Claiborne Boggs (yes, this was her full name, however, it was still too short considering her greatness and knowledge) was born on 27th December 1943, in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The reason why his elder brother Thomas Hale Boggs Jr. (an American lawyer who passed away on 15th September 2014 just 3 days prior to his birthday) called her ‘Cokie’ was because as a kid, he was unable to pronounce Corinne properly. Other members of her family were her father Hail Boggs, her mother Lindy Boggs and her elder sister Barbara Boggs Sigmund (the Mayor of the Borough of Princeton, New Jersey who passed away on 10th October 1990).


Both of her parents served for decades as domestic members of the house of representatives from the state of Louisiana. Cokie did her schooling from the Academy of the Sacred Heart which was an all-girls school in New Orleans, Louisiana. She graduated from the Stone Ridge School, Washington, DC in 1960 which was also an all-girls school. Roberts completed her ...
