(Benefit of Cooperation)

A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife open a package. What food might this contain? The mouse wondered – he was devastated to discover it was a mousetrap.
Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning:
“There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!”

The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, “Mr.Mouse, I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be bothered by it.”

The mouse turned to the pig and told him, “There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!”

The pig sympathized, but said, I am so sorry, Mr.Mouse , but there is nothing I can do about it but pray. Be assured you are in my prayers.”

The mouse turned to the cow and said “There is a mousetrap in the house! There is a mousetrap in the house!”

The cow said, “Wow, Mr. Mouse. I’m sorry for you, but it’s no skin off my nose.”

So, the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected, to face the farmer’s mousetrap alone.

That very night a sound was heard throughout the house — like the sound of a mousetrap catching its prey. The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught. The snake bit the farmer’s wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital, and she returned home with a fever.

Everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soup’s main ingredient.

But his wife’s sickness continued, so friends and neighbors came to sit with her around the clock. To feed them, the farmer butchered the pig.

The farmer’s wife did not get well; in fact, she died.
So many people came for her funeral; the farmer had the cow slaughtered to provide enough meat for all of them.

The mouse looked upon it all from his crack in the wall with great sadness.

So, the next time you hear someone is facing a problem and think it doesn’t concern you, remember — when one of us is threatened,we are all at risk.
We are all together involved in this journey called life, so it’s expedient we learn to cooperate with one another. We must keep an eye out for one another and make an extra effort to encourage one another.

Beware of Password Hacking Scams and Fake Tutorials

Beware of Password Hacking Scams and Fake Tutorials

Beware of Online ScamsIn the era of Internet, emails and social networking have taken a prominent role in almost everyone’s life, especially when it comes to the exchange of information and personal messages. So, hacking the password of an email or social networking account alone can reveal a lot of personal details about the person. Even though hacking is considered illegal, some people are left with no other option. This can be a parent wanting to gain access to the child’s email or someone who need the password of their partner’s social media account.

Well, this post is not about teaching you how to hack! But, it is about making you aware of some of the password hacking scams and fake hacking tutorials that are waiting to exploit those people who are in desperate need of hacking someone’s online password. Here is a list of some of the online scams that you should be aware of and always stay away from:

1. Password Hacking Services:

Many of the scam websites have managed to rank on top of Google for some of the most popular keywords about hacking. As a result, these websites attract a lot of people (who are in need of someone’s password) and promise them to give what they want! As most people do not have any knowledge about hacking, they often believe what is mentioned on these websites is true. Taking this factor as an added advantage, these websites (the so called hacking services) rip off money from the people and never keep up their promise.

Why password hacking services do not work?

The big reason behind why these services never work is that, most of them are owned by those scammers and noob hackers who do not have sound knowledge of how the hacking process actually works. Also, with the level of security adopted by the services like Gmail, Yahoo or Facebook, it is near impossible to to hack their database to obtain the password. Unlike, what is mentioned on most of these websites, it is not possible to use the brute force approach as well. Here is a list of some of the false claims made by most hacking services (in their own words):


  • We are a group of elite hackers working behind this site capable of cracking any password.
  • We have found out a certain vulnerability in the Facebook or Gmail servers using which we crack the password.
  • We use brute force approach to crack the password.
  • After a long time of research and hard work, we have managed to develop a program that can crack any password with just a click of a button.

If you come across a site making claims as mentioned above, it is a clear sign of a scam service. To identify them more clearly, here is a list of additional signs that you can look for:


  • Even though some websites claim that their service is free, they demand users to take up an online survey in order to avail the service. In reality, these websites are created to earn money by forcing people to participate in a survey program.
  • These websites accept payment only through services like Western Union and Money Gram but not via credit card. This is a clear sign of fraud as the money sent through these services cannot be tracked and refund cannot be claimed later.

So, the bottom line is that, if you come across a website that seems too good to be true or show some signs as mentioned above, it is always a better choice to stay away from them.

2. Fake Hacking Tutorials:

This is another type of scam that most teenagers fall victim for. This is because, most teenagers do not have enough money to afford the hacking services and hence go in search of free options and hacking tutorials that can easily get them the password they want. This is where the fake hacking tutorials come into play.

This tutorial is designed cleverly to trick users and make them believe it is true. But, in reality, when someone follows the method prescribed in the tutorial, they lose their own password in attempt to hack someone else’s password. Here is a small example of how this fake tutorial goes:

How to Bypass Right Click Block on Any Website

How to Bypass Right Click Block on Any Website

Bypass Right Click BlockYou might remember an experience where you tried to right-click on a web page but got a pop-up message saying that the “right-click functionality has been disabled”. Sometimes you may be trying to copy an image or view the source of a web page but when the right-click is disabled, these things would seem impossible. Bank websites and other sites that require a secure transaction such as a payment gateway are the ones to impose this kind of limited functionality on their pages. In this post, I will show you the ways by which you can easily bypass right-click block feature on any website.

In order to block the right-click activity, most websites make use of JavaScript which is one of the popular scripting languages used to enhance functionality, improve user experience and provide rich interactive features. In addition to this, it can also be used to strengthen the website’s security by adding some of the simple security features such as disabling right-click, protecting images, hiding or masking parts of a web page and so on.

How JavaScript Works?

Before you proceed to the next part which tells you how to disable the JavaScript functionality and bypass any of the restrictions imposed by it, it would be worthwhile for you to take up a minute to understand how JavaScript works.

JavaScript is a client side scripting language (in most cases), which means when loaded it runs from your own web browser. Most modern browsers including IE, Firefox, Chrome and others support JavaScript so that they can interpret the code and carry out actions that are defined in the script. In other words, it is your browser which is acting upon the instruction of JavaScript to carry out the defined actions such as blocking the right-click activity. So, disabling the JavaScript support on your browser can be a simple solution to bypass all the restrictions imposed by the website.

How to Disable the JavaScript?

Here is a step-by-step procedure to disable JavaScript on different browsers:

For Internet Explorer:

If you are using IE, just follow the steps below:

    1. From the menu bar, go to Tools -> Internet Options.
    2. In the “Internet Options” window, switch to Security tab and click on the button Custom level…

IE Security Settings

  1. From the Security Settings, look for the option Active scripting and select the Disable radio button as shown above and click on “OK”.
  2. You may even select the Prompt radio button, so that each time a page is loaded, you will have the option to either enable or disable the scripting.

For Google Chrome:

If you are using Chrome, you can disable the JavaScript by following the steps below:

    1. Click on the Chrome “menu” button (on the top right corner) and select Tools.
    2. From the “Settings” page, click on Show advanced settings…
    3. Now under Privacy, click on the button Content settings…

Chrome Content Settings

  1. Under the JavaScript, select the radio button which says “Do not allow any site to run JavaScript” and click on “Done”.

For Mozilla Firefox:

Steps to disable JavaScript on Firefox:

    1. From the menu bar, click on Tools -> Options.
    2. From the Options window, switch to Content tab, uncheck the option which says “Enable JavaScript” and click on “OK”.

Firefox Content Options

How to Bypass the Right Click Block?

In order to bypass the right-click block or any other restriction imposed by JavaScript, all you need to do is just disable it in the browser and refresh the same page, so that it now reloads without JavaScript functionality. You are now free to right-click on the page, view its source or even copy any of the images that you may want to. Don’t forget to re-enable the JavaScript once again when your job is over. Otherwise lack of JavaScript support may result in unusual rendering of web pages.


Imagine this scenario…….­………..

You are driving along in your two seater car on a wild stormy night. It’s raining heavily and when you suddenly pass by a bus stop, you see three people waiting for the bus:

1. An old lady who looks as if she is just about to die.

2. An old friend who once saved your life.

3. The perfect soul-mate you have been dreaming about all your life.

Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing very well that there could only be one passenger in your car?
Think before you continue reading…


This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job interview.

* You could pick up the old lady and take her to the hospital to save her life since this is the humane thing to do.

* Or you could choose the old friend because he once saved your life and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back.

* However, you may never be able to find your perfect soulmate ever again.

The candidate who was hired {out of 200 applicants} had no trouble coming up with his answer. Guess what his answer was?

He simply answered:

“I would give the car keys to my Old friend and let him take the old lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the perfect soul-mate of my dreams.”

Sometimes we gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn egocentric thoughts . Always remember to “Think Outside The Box.”

So what was your answer?????

The teachers strike and the 11
defaulting states
Here are the states/governors that have
refused to implement the 27.5 per cent
enhanced salary scale and N18,000
minimum wages:
1. Cross River [PDP]
2. Ebonyi [PDP]
3. Benue [PDP]
4. Kogi [PDP]
5. Niger [PDP] – “led by the servant
governor, ex-labour leader”
6. Sokoto [PDP]
7. Ekiti [ACN]
8. Ogun [ACN]
9. Edo [ACN] – “led by the ex-NLC
10. Borno [ANPP]
11. Zamfara [ANPP]
A good look at this list would suggest the
I. Almost half of these states are from the
opposition and indeed some of them are
led by “larger-than-life-defenders-of-the-
rights-of-the people.”
II. More than half of these states are from
Northern Nigeria and I would have
expected that these states would be the
ones to do better in this regard considering
their current placements on Education.
III. If you had traveled to these states to
notice that kids were at home rather than
in school, you would most likely have said
“this GEJ govt sef doesn’t appreciate
IV. There are many other sectors where
similar patterns would be revealed when
you look deeper showing that even though
the governors pocket half of the revenues
shared in this country on a monthly basis,
they still get to shy away from doing the
needful knowing that at the end of the
day, the polity is only addicted to “what
happens at Aso Rock.”
V. Many of these governors seem to have
perfected the act of under-performing
knowing that the polity only discusses
what happens at the center thereby joining
others to paint the President as “the
perennial murderer” as they continue to
have a jolly ride.
VI. Many of the governors from the
opposition despite all their rhetoric of
“shortage of infrastructure” still find it
difficult to achieve 50% Capital Expenditure
and to meet up with “special/critical
projects of a recurrent nature like
Education/support” within their annual
budgets due to the large over-bloated
overheads that they run.
Well, in the coming weeks I intend to shed
more light on these discrepancies – it is
time Nigerians began to ask the governors
about how they contribute towards the
development of Nigeria away from their
current practice of “spending 21 days in
Abuja; 5 days in their states; and another 5
days outside of the country” on a monthly
