"Today I had to say bye to my father who was there for me everyday of my life, he was the best father I could ask for. It's horrible that someone gets shot dead just for being a police officer. Everyone say they hate cops but they are the people they call for help. I will always love you and I will never forget you. RIP Dad."

Ramos and Wenjian Liu were assigned to an area of the borough that has more crime than their usual beat in downtown Brooklyn, police said.

Witnesses saw Brinsley walked to the car and assume what they described as a shooting stance. New York Police Commissioner, William Bratton, said Brinsley fired several times. Ramos and Liu were shot in the head. The officers were shot with no warning, no provocation, "they were quite assassinated."

Brinsley was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at a nearby subway station, authorities said.

Dozens of officers gathered as the families of the fallen officers rushed to Woodhull Medical Center on Saturday. 
Ramos just turned 40; Liu had just been married for two months. Both had a dream of becoming police officers, said Bratton.

The Least Prosperous Nation in The World is Nigeria

Nigeria being the largest economy in Africa, the country has yet been ranked least prosperous nation in the world in 2014. Despite being the giant of Africa, Nigeria is also one of the poorest nation beaten by smaller countries like Niger, Benin, Mali and Cameroun, released by annual global survey.

A UK based Legatum Institute, a research organization that documents annual prosperity indicators around the world, ranked Nigeria as 125th out of 142 countries surveyed.

Despite Nigeria's acclaimed $510 billion economy, the nation failed to make the list of Africa's top 10 most prosperous countries; a league dominated hitherto by Botswana and South Africa. Other countries involved are Morocco, Namibia, Tunisia, Algeria, Ghana, Rwanda, Burkina Faso and Senegal.

Please, can anyone sincerely explain what this means?
Serious issue for Naija.
These and many more are what we need to eradicate.
Winks.....if you know what that means.

So Far So Good-2014

In this year, I'm quite sure everyone has learnt something new. These things if not acted upon wouldn't have made any meaning. Unfortunately, most of us would prefer to keep such things to ourselves which is very bad in my own opinion and might be so to anyone that wishes to make impact. The world is not about keeping successful ideas to oneself but rather sharing it even if at a charge.
That little secret you know might be all someone needs to kick-start their success in life which will in-turn glorify you and also put you on the spot of unthinkable limelight.
All you've learnt, known and practiced will only value itself when you decide to share it (free or at a fee). Better ideas comes while sharing as the person might give some insights that will be of great benefit to you or even while teaching it.
