The good in NYSC

 Source "I remember being so mad when people used to say that “NYSC is a waste of time”. Something in me simply refused to believe those lies and the truth I held on to saw me scaling through the year touching lives and hitting goals."
http://www.bellanaija.com/2015/10/18/frances-okoro-reflections-of-an-ex-corper-on-a-meaningful-service-year/
Frances Okoro served in Ekiti State
"I set out into different schools, speaking and counselling the young ones, inviting speakers to steer them unto the right academic path, inviting trainers to teach them basic skills, fielding questions on relationships from confused young hearts…"

Her conclusion: "my one year in NYSC has taught me that we weren’t created to get all we can… we were created to give out of ourselves, of our talents, of our resources… we were created to pour out and finally die empty. And in pouring out, we find ourselves being refilled."

Did you have a meaningful service year?

Will malaria ever go away?

http://www.economist.com/news/briefing/21672080-end-sight-one-humanitys-deadliest-plagues-breaking-fever?fsrc=scn/tw/te/pe/ed/end-sight-one-humanitys-deadliest-plagues-breaking-fever
I'm AS (genotype, sickle-cell carrier) and I think I have pretty strong malaria resistance - I usually end up with flu symptoms instead of the full-blown fever.  Lucky.  You? 
"Since 2000, malaria deaths around the world have fallen by nearly half. The steepest drop has come in sub-Saharan Africa, where 90% of fatalities occur. Malaria still kills around 450,000 people each year (see chart 1)—most of them children in Africa."
The Economist has More on how the world is working to destroy malaria FOREVER

Boko Haram stories: What our people are going through

Courtesy of UNICEF, you can find interviews and features like this one:
says Gerida, a UNICEF public health specialists in Nigeria: 
One day all of this will be over and in the meantime it’s our job to keep these girls alive and make sure they are prepared for life when peace sets in.
I can't wait.

Do you love depressing stories?  More here.

http://beforeitsnews.com/war-and-conflict/2014/11/nigeria-boko-haram-militants-capture-chibok-town-again-2454696.html
The other day I found out that my parents and many of their neighbours have workers from Chibok.  That is, we have IDPs (IDP = refugee within the same country) right in our neighbourhood, well, in our home. 

I had known this kid for months before I ever asked about his hometown and then he told me about having lost his family, his sisters disappeared.  Real life stuff - all that going on and he always smiles.

Kwara is Yorubaland?

Explain this South-West and North-West divide - is it about language and ethnicity or what?  Or are the "geopolitical zones" merely developmental/representational regions based on needs or populations?   

Isn't Ilorin a Yoruba town?   What other languages are spoken in Kwara State?  Do Kwarans consider themselves Yoruba? 

Anyway, one Nigeria.
