The economies of Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC) dominate most discussions on emerging markets, but attention is now turning to lesser known countries with attractive demographic profiles and high growth rates(Nigeria being one of them).
Nigeria has a tremendous amount of resources, talented individuals and manpower, this discussion goes more indept into the reason why Nigeria and other lesser known countries are emerging markets and growing rapidly.
I know it's kind of long but hey I didn't upload the video lol.......... Enjoy and leave your comments
Here's Tiger's official statement:
''As you all know, I had a single-car accident earlier this week, and sustained some injuries. I have some cuts, bruising and right now I’m pretty sore. This situation is my fault, and it’s obviously embarrassing to my family and me. I’m human and I’m not perfect. I will certainly make sure this doesn’t happen again.
This is a private matter and I want to keep it that way. Although I understand there is curiosity, the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible.
The only person responsible for the accident is me. My wife, Elin, acted courageously when she saw I was hurt and in trouble. She was the first person to help me. Any other assertion is absolutely false.
This incident has been stressful and very difficult for Elin, our family and me. I appreciate all the concern and well wishes that we have received. But, I would also ask for some understanding that my family and I deserve some privacy no matter how intrusive some people can be''.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!! Does something seem fishy here is it just me???
Singer/Songwriter/Producer The Dream comments on his new wife Christin Milian's cooking
''MY WIFE IS KILLIN THE KITCHEN RIGHT NOW RED VELVET FROM SCRATCH SWEET POTATO C.GREENS, HAM TURKEY WOW OF COURSE I CANT EAT NONE OF THIS SH*T. I STILL CANT GET OVER HOW A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE 21ST CENTURY COOKS SO WELL I THOUGHT THAT WAS PLAYED OUT SHE REALLY CAN COOK! IM FROM GA
SO YOU KNOW MY CHUBBY AZZ KNOW ABOUT GOOD FOOD BUT SHE ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT SHES DOING! IM SO IMPRESSED OKAY THATS ENOUGH OF THAT MUSHY SH*T..''
So I was on necolebitchie's blog and I seen this comment by The Dream that he posted via his twitter about his wife Christina Milian being a great cook and I was like WOOOW!! I had no idea she could cook anything. But now I'm even a bigger fan of hers, I personally think women should know how to cook, but I also believe that a man should know how to cook as well because he might not always have a woman around to cook for him and even if he does have a woman around she might need a break every once in a while............Ladies the truth is that the secret to a man's heart is his stomach period.
The pregnant woman is an odd creature. She is beautiful and at the same time prone to fits that can make her positively horrendous. She carries life within her and can appear to have the very life and vitality drained out of her at the same time. This is the one thing that she can TRULY do better than a man! However, she can be sensitive to the point of discomfort, as many a husband has been dismayed to find out. There are some things that one should never say to a pregnant woman. I have a few in my head but this is by no means an exhaustive list.
1) “ My…how you’ve grown! You look about ready to pop!!”: Uhm…no, no and again I say no! FYI she is VERY aware of her bulging, burgeoning shape. You do not need to remind her, genius! She feels like she’s about ready to pop and if you’re lucky, she just might…in front of you. Not pleasant. Very messy.
2) “ That’s a very odd shape…looks a bit like a misshapen pumpkin…”: Einstein, who told you that all pregnant bellies are created equal? There are some that are like cute little basketballs and others that look like oblong watermelons (yep, it’s gross but true). Please don’t tell her that. You may have one of 2 reactions: she may burst into tears…or she may attack you.
3) “Uhm…are you sure if you eat that the baby will turn out…you know…normal?”: There are very few times in life when a woman can eat what, when and how she wants and pregnancy is one of those times. So do her a favour and leave her alone. So what if she’s eating yoghurt with pickles and ketchup? The baby will turn out just fine. Worst comes to worst she’ll have a bad case of indigestion.
4) “Aren’t pregnant women supposed to glow and be radiant?”: ‘So you mean I’m not?’ That would definitely be her response and then you will fluster and sputter and try to apologize ‘No, that’s not what I meant…’ ‘Well, what did you mean?’ “Oh, uhm..I..uhm’. You get the picture. Don’t start what you can’t finish. And a pregnant woman is not a person you argue with: she has stamina and she can be C-R-A-N-K-Y!!!
5) “Let’s hope baby doesn’t end up looking like Uncle Clement (or Auntie Abebelubelanetta)”: That is a definite no-no…especially if the said Uncle or Auntie is aesthetically challenged in the facial department. Seriously, no mum-to-be wants to visualize her baby with Uncle Clement’s red brick nose or Auntie Abebelu(etc)'s satellite dish ears.
6) “Good LORD! I’ve heard of women’s noses getting big during pregnancy but yours…” You have just officially entered the danger zone. The condition you speak of is called pregnancy induced acromeghaly and is quite common. However it’s one of those things you pretend not to notice…for you own well being. As mentioned earlier in points No. 2 and No. 4: Pregnant woman= cranky and sensitive!
7) “Wow…got a Dolly Parton thing going there, have we?”: How do I put this delicately…a pregnant woman’s body is preparing for a new person. That new person can make a loud and HUNGRY entrance into the world and for the safety and sanity of all around there had BETTER be food on the menu around the clock, a fully stocked bar so to speak! For some ladies this is a rather welcome development while for others, it’s a bother. Better to err on the side of caution and not try to find out which of the sides the lady is on, right?
“ Geez…I thought you were a Size 6. When did you start wearing your husband’s shoes?”: There are cases in which the lady gets swollen feet and hands. That can be quite distressing. Equally distressing is the fact that gone are the days of sassy Manolos and in come the Crocs and flip flops. For the fashionista mum-to-be this can be extremely depressing. So please when you see her donning a less than flattering pair of shoes/slippers, leave her be. Believe me, she’s grieving the loss of her high heels.
9) “ Oh I’m sure you’ll be back in shape in no time after…you gained 28 kgs? Oh… I see. Well, nothing a year of vigorous diet and exercise won’t clear up!”: Oh don’t rub it in! She knows she looks like a beached whale. Please don’t remind her needlessly. If you’re not going to be her personal trainer and help her lose the weight then please don’t talk about it.
10) “ Gosh, I hope you don’t have one of those long 75 hour labours…”: Labour is not a pleasant walk in the park and for some ladies it is a terrifying prospect. The less said to scare her, the better. Besides, you may make things even harder for her husband as she is likely to pour out all her labour room angst and horror at him!
Great entertainment or should I say great acting and damn does Toni ever age, I mean she still looks 25...........What you guys think????

Tiger Wood's Wife Whooped Him With A Golf Club For Cheating? (CNN Asks Suspicious Questions To Cop Bout Tiger's Alledged Car Accident)
WOOOW!!! EVERYBODY GOT DRAMA GOING ON IN THEIR BACKYARD LOL... IF THIS IS TRUE, HOW SOFT IS TIGER WOODS????
To amusingly yet convincingly dramatize the need for the Panasonic nose hair trimmer’s safety cutting system, creative billboards were built around actual electric poles and wires in Indonesia.
With thousands of sensory nerve fibers in human nostrils, trimming nose hair can be as risky as cutting live wires.
Lol, what do you guys think???

“Using an original technique of light painting I aimed to create simplified graphic versions of each of these classic shapes. The timeless, current and forward thinking design of each model has made creating these representations a massively inspiring experience,” says Mark Brown.
The feature was on this weekend’s episode of BBC Africa Business Report. Watched it and found it quite insightful and inspiring. We can tell you firsthand that doing business in Nigeria is really challenging but ultimately very rewarding. Reports like this send a great message. It shows a different side of Nigeria to the world, one of progress and positive initiatives. It also lets people know that indeed they can make a difference and drive their business ideas to fruition.
See the report below.
Africa Business Report, BBC World News, Nigeria
Kabir Audu has returned to Nigeria after working on Wall Street
Kabir Audu is a very successful Nigerian. He’s 30. And he has an idea.
“It was Ben Gurion in the late 1940s,” he says.
“He called on Israelis around the world to come home. To build an Israel greater than their wildest imagination.”
“We see Nigeria every day – tremendous talent, this tremendous potential. Imagine if it’s wielded toward one vision.”
Kabir and his friend Tunji Abdul are living proof of Nigeria’s mass migration homeward.
Both were making a fortune on Wall Street. Both were bored.
“Every deal felt just an extension of a previous project,” says Tunji.
Kabir and Tunji are planning Lagos’s first sustainable skyscraper
“I came back to Nigeria after 10 years. I realised this place was calling for young entrepreneurs – to breathe new life into the system.
“That’s why I came back.”
They’re real estate developers, building modern homes – and the first sustainable skyscraper in Lagos.
It will harvest its own rainwater and be powered by solar energy.
“We want our architecture to shape the way people feel about their space, their community,” says Tunji.
“Great buildings, inspirational buildings, don’t just have to be in the UK or the US.”
Tunji and Kabir are two among hundreds of thousands.
Bode Pedro is another.
He’s 26 and runs a computer manufacturing start-up business employing 75 people.
“It’s a renaissance,” he says. “We’re talking about art, science, technology, entertainment, media and business.
Recruitment agencies specialise in bringing talented Nigerians home
“People are coming home because they want to be part of it.”
All of them were educated in the US, but their rich American accents are barely noticed in the nightclubs in Lagos.
Here, vowels from New York and Oxford blend into West African pidgin English.
Another giveaway – Lagos is sprouting recruitment agencies with a difference.
They specialise in bringing talented Nigerians back home.
“In 2003, we thought around 5,000 people a month were coming in,” says Funto Akinkugbe from Find A Job In Africa.
“That’s multiplied by three now. We’re looking at the best part of 15,000 people on a monthly basis.”
The influx is startling. Nigerians have a word for them – “re-pat”.
And, it appears that there are two types.
Entrepreneurs like Kabir and Tunji have spotted a market and are starting businesses.
Some 140 million people living here makes Nigeria quite a business opportunity.
You have to make sure you’re one step ahead. Get up earlier and leave the office later
Tunji Abdul, entrepreneur
Meanwhile, thousands of others are seeking shelter from the global financial crisis.
Job losses in the financial sector – and the financial crisis itself – make going home suddenly seem very attractive.
And these refugees are attractive employment for the entrepreneurs tapping into Nigeria’s potential.
With a huge market and a huge labour force combined, Nigeria ought to stand alongside Brazil or Russia.
So why doesn’t it?
‘One step ahead’
The answer is that Nigeria has not enjoyed the same economic growth.
Here, a businessman’s lot is not always a happy one.
Chronic electricity failures, traffic jams that last for hours, the delays, the half truths and shadows of corruption. All of that makes doing business here very difficult.
“What do you need to survive? Passion!” laughs Tunji Abdul.
“You have to make sure you’re one step ahead.
“Get up earlier and leave the office later. Move around when traffic is a bit less.
“It’s your business to find a solution.”
And if you can make it work the rewards are worth it.
“Nigeria is phenomenal,” says Kabir.
“People keep saying, ‘Oh, you gave up a lot of money on Wall Street, to come back here…..’.
He pulls a face and smiles. “Actually, it’s not the case. In terms of rate of return, it is significantly higher than where we’re coming from.”
Being part of change
Bode Pedro agrees.
“Nigeria is so fresh. Right now, we have 5% computer usage here.
“It’s changing fast – and you’re either part of it, or not.”
For all of them, the bottom line is very good – but the personal kick that thrills them is the impact they’re having.
“You coming here is being part of a renaissance,” says Bode softly.
“In five years, you’ll be part of something new. You’ll be part of something different.
“You’ll be part of the growth of a superpower called Nigeria.”

It’s the year 2009 and with each passing year, more ‘Independent Women’ anthems seem to be hitting the airwaves. We ladies are feeling like ‘we got our own’ and in general, feeling more financially independent.
Which brings me to the topic of today…
As we dey here, dey do ‘Ms. Independent’, are we adopting that same approach to dating and relationships? Specifically, I am curious as to which stage in the courting process, if at all do you ladies offer to pay for the date?
Imagine if an object of interest is courting you, and wining and dining you, and let’s assume that you guys have been on about 4 dates so far. By the 5th date, do you feel like you should reach into your wallet and at least offer to pay for the date, or do you feel that if a man is wining, dining and courting you, it is his financial responsibility to pay for all your dates?
Granted, this mentality of women offering to pay for dates or going dutch appears to be pretty westernized, seeing that if you are dating a man in Nigeria, it is very unlikely that he will even entertain the idea of a woman offering to pay for the date.
And of course, I’m not going to leave the guys out of this one so I will remix the question and throw it right back at y’all. If you’ve taken your object of interest out on 5 dates, and by the 6th date she has made no moves to reach into her wallet, or at least offer to pay for the date, how would you view this?
If a woman offered to pay for a date, would you be insulted?
And more importantly, would you ever ask a woman to go dutch with you on a date?
Man I guess when you're hot you're hot, is it me ir is Mr'Drizzy Drake on every one's record. This song is actually hot though, if you guys remember I featured it a few weeks ago when it was first released. Looking forward to the vid though.............

HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE......
Marc, Kenny and Eric talk with David Aldridge about Allen Iverson's decision to retire from the NBA.
Allen Iverson announced his intention to retire Wednesday, closing the door, for now, on a career marked by incredible personal highs and headline-grabbing controversies.
Iverson clearly believes he can still compete at a high level and contribute in a league where he spent 13 full seasons. The former MVP and 10-time All-Star played three games for Memphis this season, his first with the Grizzlies, before leaving the team amid questions of playing time and eventually being released.
Iverson fell into career limbo as several teams debated whether to sign perhaps the most talented "little" man in league history. Rumors in New York and Boston and elsewhere never materialized into substance, and A.I. delivered his goodbye via an open letter on Stephen A. Smith's Web site.
Iverson thanked his many fans, players that inspired him, former coaches and teammates, and the Grizzlies and Sixers, his first NBA team. But there was also a sense of remorse right off the top of the statement. "I always thought that when I left the game, it would be because I couldn't help my team the way that I was accustomed to. However, that is not the case."
Iverson isn't required to file retirement paperwork with the league office as a free agent. Since he's not under contract, Iverson isn't forfeiting any money by retiring. He remains free to sign with any team this season or in the future.
News of Iverson's retirement sent shock waves across the league. Players were quick to praise the contributions of the four-time scoring champ, who many credit for helping introduce a hip-hop element to the NBA.
"His legacy would be huge," said Cavaliers star LeBron James, a teammate of Iverson on the 2004 USA Olympic team. "He's one of the best guys, when you're talking guys 6-foot and under, to play the game of basketball. What he's done individually -- he played injured, he played hard every single night -- I don't think it should end this way if he's done.
"But at the same time if he does, he's left some great games behind. His name will live forever in the game of basketball."
Even without a title.
"It's not even the ring situation because lots of greats -- Charles Barkley doesn't have a ring, Patrick Ewing -- there's a lot of great NBA players who never got a ring," James continued. "But the way he's going out, I don't think it should be like that for him."
There's a strong belief Iverson can still play. Teams wanting him became the roadblock.
"It's sad, man, especially coming from a guy that's close to me, a friend," Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony said. "To see him go out the way he's going out right now is not how he'd want to go out. It's almost like he's being forced to retire. It's a bad situation right now for him."
Heat guard and former Olympic teammate Dwyane Wade: "I'm No. 3. He made No. 3 cool. He made crossovers cool. He did so much for the game as a pioneer. It's sad to see him think about retirement."
Mavericks guard Jason Kidd was glad Iverson made the decision on his terms.
"He has the right to do what he wants and if it's time for him to step aside, then that's his choice," Kidd said. "Everybody's gonna have their opinion these days and as long as he's happy, that's the most important thing."
Nuggets coach George Karl was shocked by the retirement announcement. Iverson was traded to Denver in 2006 and moved to Detroit last year.
"Yeah, I am surprised," Karl said. "I think he has something left to give some team out there, but if that's his decision he'll go down in history as the best little guard ever to play the game of basketball. I was happy to have him for a couple of years. Hopefully, our paths will cross."
Anthony said, "He got dealt a bad hand from when he went to Detroit up until right now. Everything's just been kind of spiraling downhill. I don't ever want to see anybody go through something like that, especially a guy with his talent. And somebody who can still go out there and be productive."
Spurs backup center Theo Ratliff played with Iverson in Philadelphia from 1997-01.
"While we were all there we basically grew up together with that team," Ratliff said. "We were at the bottom of the league, but by that third or fourth year we were at the top. It was just a growing up process. He was a young guy who had his issues, but he was a very giving and very understanding guy of his family, which was his teammates and his immediate family.
"It was no secret that he was a guy who had his entourage, his people that he grew up with and he felt that he needed to take care of them. He was at the top of the league at the time. He was the No. 1 star, the face of the league. Of course you're going to have everyone with their hand out ready and willing to ask for anything. And he was a guy who most of the time gave. That was the kind of guy he was."
Whatever issues he had off the court, Iverson was almost universally respected by his peers on the hardwood.
"I hope he doesn't retire because I know there's still a lot of basketball left," Bobcats guard Stephen Jackson said. "I know he really wants to play the game and still has love for the game, but if he does much love and respect to him always.
"He's always been a big brother. He showed me that I can be myself in this league regardless of what people say as long as I go out there and respect the game. That's the type of person that he was. He laid the foundation for a lot of guys like me. I have nothing but respect for him and wish him the best."
Warriors guard Corey Maggette said, "He's been one the faces of the NBA. Everybody respects A.I. A lot of people in the league started getting braids because of him. He's influenced the league so much. That's just the real talk."
Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki said: "He's been so much fun to watch. At the size that he is and the way he performed over so many years, he'll definitely be missed in the league if he retires."
Iverson's competiveness and toughness are legendary.
"Everybody talked about competing pound-for-pound," said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, an assistant on the 2004 USA Olympic team. "He was just one hell of a competitor. I don't care what he weighed or how tall he was, he sacrificed his body a lot and took a pounding and played hurt a lot."
"That [retirement] has to be rough for him, because I know the type of competitor he is," Ratliff said. "I wished it wouldn't have gone the way it went toward the end of his career. You can never predict how you end your career. I just hope he has his life in order and keeps on moving forward."
Here's A.I's official retirement Statement via Stephen A. Smith's blog
NOV. 25, 2009
TO ALL OF MY FANS:
I would like to announce my plans to retire from the National Basketball Association. I always thought that when I left the game, it would be because I couldn’t help my team the way that I was accustomed to. However, that is not the case.
I still have tremendous love for the game, the desire to play, and a whole lot left in my tank. I feel strongly that I can still compete at the highest level.
Stepping away from the game will allow me to spend quality time with my wife and kids. This is a reward that far exceeds anything that I’ve ever achieved on the basketball court. I have prayed for this day and I see it as my greatest gift.
I want to thank the people of Reebok International Ltd., for always allowing me to be me and for supporting me my whole career through all the ups and downs. I have enjoyed 13 wonderful seasons in the NBA, and I am grateful.
I want to first acknowledge my fans everywhere, who have been with me throughout my entire career. Without you, there would be no me. You should all know that I appreciate your support from the bottom of my heart. Thank you!
To Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Isiah Thomas, Charles Barkley and Larry Bird, you guys gave me the vision to play the game that will be forever in my heart.
To my Mom, who encouraged and inspired me to play every day, and to all of my family and friends who stood by me from the beginning. Thank you!
To my high school coach, Michael Bailey, Coach John Thompson at Georgetown University, Coach Larry Brown and to all of my other coaches, teammates, administrators, owners and staff who’ve been a part of my career, Thank you as well!
I’d like to give a special thanks to the people of Memphis. I never played a home game for your beloved Grizzlies, but I want you to know how much I appreciate the opportunity given me by a great owner in Michael Heisley, and the support of the city. I wish the Memphis Grizzlies’ organization all of the success that the game has to offer.
And finally, to the city of Philadelphia: I have wonderful memories of my days in a Sixers’ uniform. To Philly fans, thank you. Your voice will always be music to my ears.God Bless all of you,
WOOOW!!! I never thought I'd see the day, when A eazy retires. I mean this guy is barely 6 feet tall and he carried a NBA team(The philadelphia 76ers) on his back for over 10 years, I mean c'mon what more can you ask for. He's recieved every accolade there is to recieve except for a championship. 4 time NBA scoring champ, NBA All - Star MVP, NBA season MVP, Carried his team to the NBA finals, led the league in steals for several seasons I mean. The list goes on and on. I think AI just couldn't fit with any team right now and he figured he'll just retire before the situation becomes embarrasing. I honestly don't like the way he's going out of the game but I guess sometimes things don't always work out the way you planned. He has left behind a moments that will never be forgotten by me or any of his fans and haters. Iverson may be a little guy but he has the heart of the a giant so don't be surprised to see him comeback to the league......
Below are some highlight vids of A.I's legendary NBA career.
Mr. Fashola disclosed this while presenting the 2010 budget to the State House of Assembly in Alausa, Ikeja.
He said: "We have now reached a stage where it is no longer avoidable to ask: ‘How many people can Lagos State meaningfully employ and sustain?''
Notorious B.I.G. the King himself, told us Mo' Money Mo Problems; being broke all the time, is definitely the way to go. Let's show you how...
Tip 1: Once you receive your first salary after not having for a long time, start doing everything you watched people who had money do. E.g. pop bottles of champagne, take 24hrs Car Hire…
Tip 2: Buy all the aso-ebi’s for events so that you can be like Banky W and be in Encomium every week and so City People wouldn’t leave you alone.
Tip 3: Go for parties every weekend, and spray money to everyone who as much as looks at you.
Tip 4: Pay for everything including for someone to wash your underwear, isn’t that what people with money do?
Tip 5: Tomorrow will look after itself, so endeavor to spend your last kobo on things you don’t need before the clock strikes midnight.
Tip 6: Follow all the latest trends like buying expensive human hair, and designer shoes even though your salary can clearly not afford it.
Tip 7: Do everything wrong to make sure you’re a regular LASTMA customer…in fact, once you receive your salary, just hand it over to the first LASTMA official you see.
Tip 8: Try to impress everyone around you by making sure that you buy something new everyday, whether you need it or not.
Tip 9: Don’t give your hard-earned money to people in need o!! All those people that say Givers Never Lack don’t know what they’re talking about.
A wise person once said, "Being Broke is Childish"...nuff said!!
Lol, funny but true....

Talk about swagg on high!!!. Snoop was looking tooo fly, and everyone else had thier G - Pass on deck.
Miss the good ol hip-hop days...............
A company called Swype has developed a new technology that allows you to text without lifting a single finger. All you do is swipe from letter to letter and the software automatically determines what you’re typing. Verizon is releasing the first phone with this technology, the Omnia II on December 2nd…
I might just have to try this swype texting thing, looks kinda cool.
Rihanna had a pretty good interview with Angie Martinez of NYC Radio Station Hot97.
Here are some excerpts from the interview...
On the pics of her grabbing boobs online:
There are tons of those pictures. I grab boobies all the time, I’m obessesed. I don’t have much so anytime I see a good rack I’m like “wow, I wish mine looked and felt like that”. Women are beautiful. I’m not into them but they are hot.
On her nude photos leaking:
Which ones? The hot ones? They should be hot, they were for my boyfriend at the time. If you don’t send your boyfriend naked pictures then I feel bad for him. Trust me I was [freaked out], that was the worst thing that could possibly ever happen to me. I just feel like my privacy was taken before that and then when that came out I was like “Oh great! So, Now there is nothing they don’t know about my private life”. It was humiliating and embarrassing, especially my mom having to see that and it was two days before Mother’s Day so I was nervous…
Listen to the interview to hear more....Enjoy
A Porsche is special enough for most, but for those looking for a bit more, there is no shortage of German tuners that specialize in Zuffenhausen's finest who'll be glad to bring it to the next level. Arguably foremost among them is 9ff, the relatively new outfit that made its mark with the record-breaking GT9.
With the Essen aftermarket tuner show coming up next weekend, 9ff has prepared the new Speed9. Based on the latest 911 Turbo convertible, the Speed9 sacrifices its rear seats for a slick profile evocative of the iconic 1955 Porsche 356 Speedster, with enough ground effects to match. Naturally 9ff hasn't stopped at looks alone, boosting the twin-turbo engine up from 473 horsepower to a shocking 650. No official word on price or performance, but you can expect both to exceed expectations.
I've always said it takes a special type of person to own a Porsche..............
