YOUR WORLD AND YOU
We are in a world but different people are in different worlds. Every person has his own specific world which is customized only for him. The programming of every person is perfectly designed to suit his own world. In other words, our individual worlds are all connected together through multi-factorial, highly intellectual and interactive programming network designed by our Creator. You need to understand the programming of your world, the processes of your world,
DREAMS, VISIONS AND EMPOWERMENT
"Dreams are impulses of thought, at times they are fantasies of one's head or thoughts of one's mind that one wishes to acquire, have or become in life."
Our empowerment base comprises the pools or deposits of resources, skills, knowledge and experiences; we have acquired or inherited overtimes in the process of life. Our empowerment base equips us to bring our dreams and visions into a reality. Without empowerment the actualization of our visions and dreams would be a mirage. What then is vision? Vision is the power of imagination and an expression of wisdom in
WORLD RELIGIONS: EXPLORING DIVERSITY
It is crystal clear that religious perspectives all over the world are complex and multifactorial in nature. There is no
generally accepted standard that can be used to judge the truism of any religion claims. I believe the experiential
dimension of religions rooted in diverse experiences and environmental encounters brought above different religions all
over the world. It is evident that there is a part of humans carving for the supernatural, this part of us has to be
satisfied if we really want to lead a fulfilled life. Religions have charming and captivating impact on us, we believe
in the supernatural and different religions devised the way to get in touch with the supernatural. My own religion
experience has made me to believe in the Almighty God, the Creator and Architectural Designer and Programmer of life,
who sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to the world to redeem mankind from the power of death and sin.
No scientific method of empiricism can be used to prove this, but for the fact that my claims cannot be proven by
empirical methods of science, does not make my claims nonsensical, this is the case of religions.
LOGICAL THINKING PUZZLES FOR CHILDREN
In school, pupils are taught how to do addition, subtraction, division, multiplication, and how to apply rules and formulas to solve problems but the creativity and intelligences that brought about all these mathematical operations are often neglected. For instance, logical-mathematical intelligence is the ability to reason, calculate, recognize patterns and handle logical thinking. It is usually found in researchers, scientists, computer programmers, engineers, mathematicians, doctors, police investigators, accountants, economists, lawyers and animal trackers. Famous examples well-known for logical-mathematical intelligence include: Sir Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Bertrand Russell, Marian Diamond, and Bill Gates.
CARD MATHEMATICAL INTELLIGENCE GAMES
If magic is the use of intelligence in form of tricks, deception or strategies to produce mysterious, amazing and mind-blowing results then card mathematical magic can be defined as the use of mathematical intelligence in form of card tricks or strategies to produce mysterious, amazing and mind-blowing results. The novelty of card mathematical intelligence game tricks is that they are based on simple mathematical principles. The principles underlying card mathematical intelligence game tricks were coined out from distributive regeneration of ordered system (Taylor, 2013).
Psychology first came to the attention of the general public through intelligence testing. During World War I, Army
Alpha, a group of intelligence test administered to recruits, was taken by more than a million American men. It was about
the same period the work of Lewis Madison Terman with the Stanford-Binet tests of intelligence came into limelight,
attracting a great deal of attention in the popular press. In recent times, there have been a lot of arguments on the
limitations of various available intelligence tests. Many are of the opinion that popular intelligence tests are only
designed to test verbal and logical reasoning, and that there are other types of human intelligence that cannot be measured by these popular intelligence tests.
DIMURELO is a logical-mathematical intelligence puzzle developed from the aspect of Kola Analysis named Complexity Emergence in Distributive Regeneration of Ordered System. Unlike Sudoku which is a (sometimes addictive) puzzle, Dimurelo is basically a distributive puzzle presented on a square or rectangular grid in a distribution form. The puzzle revolves around the four core characteristics of logical-mathematical intelligence. They are concrete reasoning which involves breaking down systems into their components; linear reasoning which involves seeking order and consistency in the world; causal relationships which involve identifying cause and effect within a system; abstract reasoning which involves using symbols that represent concrete ideas, and lastly complex operations which involve performing sophisticated algorithms.
THE ETIOLOGY OF IQ
Intelligence is the ability to acquire knowledge, ability to apply the knowledge acquired in solving problems and ability to engage in abstract reasoning. The attempt of psychologists in measuring intelligence brought about the concept of IQ. Intelligence Quotient forms an average value of one's intellectual capacity and population reference; it does not calculate one's intelligence. Formerly, Intelligence Quotient (IQ) was a quotient or a ratio: IQ = MA/CA x 100 [CA is the chronological age, MA is the mental age]. It is the score one gets from several standardized tests created to measure intelligence. Nowadays, scores are calibrated against norms of actual population scores (Boeree, 2003).
THE BANE OF PLAGIARISM
The fundamental concept of writing assignments especially in an academic setting is to present well-researched materials that are original, knowledge contributing, ethically acceptable, showing the true reflection of the students' understanding and creativity. When this fundamental concept is defeated through academic misconduct like plagiarism, one of the main purposes of education in building and nourishing creativity and intellectualism is defeated. From legal point of view, emulating, copying or reproducing the work of another person without his authorization or without proper citations can be subjected to legal proceedings which may fall under civil or criminal laws. Therefore, plagiarism can simply be defined as the representation or presentation of someone else's words, ideas or thoughts as your own (Integrity.ou.edu 2013).
CALORIE RESTRICTION, INTERMITTENT FASTING AND A HEALTHIER YOU
In an age where we have more food than we can eat and eat more food than we need, calorie restriction is a healthy choice not only for obvious benefits such as weight loss but also for lowering the risk of chronic diseases. Multiple studies have confirmed that restricting caloric intake prolonged lifespan and slowed down aging in a number of animal species. Recent evidences also indicate that calorie restriction can also provide similar benefits for humans.
THE TOP BENEFITS OF DARK CHOCOLATE
There is no doubt that dark chocolate is good for your health. Past and new studies have confirmed most of the benefits we grew up associating with chocolate. Overall, chocolate improves the body and mind. With new evidences from recent studies, we finally have a clear understanding of the mechanisms by which chocolate improvesour health. Perhaps the most evident effect of chocolate is on mood. Chocoholics know this and their "addiction" is mostly due to craving "chocolate high."
FRUITS TO HELP LOWER YOUR RISK OF DIABETES
Sweet fruits are rich in simple sugars such as glucose and fructose. Unfortunately, high fructose consumption can increase your risk of developing a number of chronic diseases including type 2 diabetes. For this reason, you should moderate your consumption of whole fruits and avoid fruit juices entirely. Fruit juices contain most of the sugar content of whole fruits with none of the fibers in their pulps or the phytonutrients in the peels.
THE ART OF MASTICATION: WHY CHEWING YOUR FOOD PROPERLY IS IMPORTANT
Chewing food is a reflex action for everyone. If you are hungry or eating in a hurry, chances are that you will chew your foods very quickly and improperly. Some people have made a bad habit for not chewing well before they swallow their foods. Unfortunately, this habit may affect your health in more ways than you know. Your chewing pattern as well as the duration of mastication can have simple but profound effects on the digestive process because digestion begins right from your mouth.
STOP TEEN COSMETIC SURGERY
Cosmetic surgery is defined as surgery to improve a "normal" appearance, such as reshaping a nose or augmenting breasts (Zuckerman). Over the years, there have been a lot of hot debates for and against teen cosmetic surgery especially in the press, social and academic gatherings. While its proponents are vehemently promoting it, others see no reasons why it should continue. Historically, teenagers have been allowed to undergo cosmetic surgery such as Nose job (rhinoplasty) and Ear surgery (otoplasty), but now they are seeking for the many other types of cosmetic surgery. The number of teenagers seeking for cosmetic surgery is on the increase especially in the developed countries. The question is "Should teenagers be allowed to undergo cosmetic surgery despite all the risks involved?"
HUMAN DEVELOPMENT AND AGING
The understanding of human developmental stages and aging has helped a lot in proffering solutions to most of the health and social challenges of life. Life stages starts at infancy and ends at old age and it is generally accepted that the mystery of aging is enshrined in the process of human development. Life begins with a one-celled zygote that is made possible through fertilization of the ovum by spermatozoon. It progresses sequentially to prenatal development, birth, infancy and childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, middle age, and old age. Some scientists believe that the clock of aging could be brought backward or even stopped if the process of human developmental stages leading to ageing could be slow down or re-adjusted.
HOW TO STOP ALL BAD HABITS IN JUST 21 DAYS
Without exaggeration, all of us have habits we would want to quit but one way or the other we find it difficult to get rid of them. We all know that kicking out our bad habits would make our lives much better and more productive. Many people find it extremely difficult to quit bad habits despite the unpalatable experiences associated with them. A habit is a form of automated behavioural pattern that is established through customary practice. Habit can be divided into two: good habits and bad habits. A good habit is a generally accepted way of living in the society without compromising good hygiene, etiquette and the norms and values of the society.

HEGEMONY OR COOPERATION
In recent years, international political economy has evolved into a growth industry. Before 1970, it was practically nonexistent as a field of study. International political economy began its boom after the oil crises in the 1970 that affected both states and world markets. Today, the field of international political economy is not only comprised a lot of political economies but also entailed international and comparative politics. Attention was shifted to the field’s main focus when the Cold War ended. After the Cold War, scholars suddenly took interests in international political economy to understand how states and markets affect one another. With the advent of international political economy, scholars are realizing that the impacts of politics on the openness and stability of the international economy are profound. Undoubtedly, international political economy is the study of the impacts of politics on world economic actions.
OBAMA'S INAUGURAL ADDRESS: ITS RHETORIC, RHYTHM AND STRATEGIES
Politics is a skirmish for power to actualize specific economic, political and social ideas. It is imperative to know that language plays a crucial role in the process of politics particularly in the preparation, influence and accomplishment of every political action. It is evident that active politics cannot be devoid of the strategic use of language. Barack Obama’s Inaugural Address 2009 is a testimony to the importance of the strategic use of words to produce desired effects. Before going into the rhetoric, rhythm, and strategies of Obama’s Inaugual Address of 2009, let briefly go down the memory lane. Barack Obama in November 2008 emerged as the first African American president in the history of the United States. In the political and social arenas of the American society, his electoral victory was considered to be a leap forward. His victory consolidated the dream of Martin Luther King Jr., and millions of his fellow citizens.
