On Wednesday, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan launched and obtained the 64 page e-passport in Abuja. The existing e-passport is 32 page.

The Presidency reveals that the 64 page e-passport conforms with international best practices. It helps frequent travelers, it is gender friendly, and more cost effective for low income earners.

The cost for the passport which is strictly for frequent travelers, is N8,750. It has also been stated that this new passport in no way invalidates the 32 page passport.

The President also had a word for Nigerians and how they portray the country outside the shores. He urged Nigerians to paint respectful pictures of their country so that others would see it in the same light.

The President then proceeded to be the first citizen to get the e-passport followed by the Vice President, Namadi Sambo, as they got captured by the Immigration officials.

The e-passport takes off from…

How to survive that long flight

Worldtraveland

DSC_0023-1

Here are some tips on how to feel good and comfortable in a long flight:

DRINK PLENTY: Economy flights rarely provide enough water for passengers, so take a two-litre bottle with you. As you dehydrate, your blood thickens, making a clot more likely. The recycled, air-conditioned atmosphere on a plane is as dry as a desert, so drink plenty of fruit juice and water before and during your flight, especially if you are returning from a hot country and are already dehydrated. Avoid tea, coffee, colas and other caffeinated drinks, which are all diuretics.
TAKE AN ASPIRIN: A 75mg aspirin on the morning of your flight, with one per day for the following two or three days, can lower your risk of a Deep vein thrombosis  (DVT) by one-third, says Farroll Kahn, because it thins the blood. However, if you have not taken aspirin before or have stomach problems…

The Facebook Experiment: the ‘why’ questions…

For profit reasons or for sociology?….. these are the questions I think the experiment is yet to answer….besides aren’t businesses going to gain since the experiment Will provide alternate ways of marketing ?

Paul Bernal's Blog

Facebook question markA great deal has been written about the Facebook experiment – what did they actually do, how did they do it, what was the effect, was it ethical, was it legal, will it be challenged and so forth – but I think we need to step back a little and ask two further questions. Why did they do the experiment, and why did they publish it in this ‘academic’ form.

What Facebook tell us about their motivations for the experiment should be taken with a distinct pinch of salt: we need to look further. What Facebook does, it generally does for one simple reason: to benefit Facebook’s bottom line. They do things to build their business, and to make more money. That may involve getting more subscribers, or making those subscribers stay online for longer, or, most crucially and most directly, by getting more money from its advertisers. Subscribers are…

Worldtraveland

Summer Vacation Beach

Workaholics please take note – a vacation is a must. So forget your guilty feelings. Trash your stoical attitude of boasting about not having had a break since the year dot. Times have changed! Here are ten reasons why you should take a vacation>>>>>>>
1. Gain Perspective on Life – During day to day work our minds are caught up with the problems and activities of the job. Vacations are times for a change of pace. A great vacation might cause you to think, “This is what life is about!” Ask yourself – Do you live to work or work to live?

2. Wards Off Burn Out – Vacations give you time to relax, de-stress and let go. Constant stress on the job can lead to burn out. Recovering from burnout requires lots on non work time.

3. Enhances Creativity – Any down time in which you let the daily worries go…
