Blogging / How Google Differentiate Between Good And Bad Content by ikoiikenna: Last week on Sun at 06:21am
The web is like that one girl who in high-school had the ducky look with braces and all but evolved into a run way model just before puberty hit the home run. But of a cause, you can’t think of the internet without appreciating the immeasurable importance of search engines.

Search engines like Google and Yahoo play a primary function within the discovery of content material on the net and as anticipated at any time when a search comes into play, Google would be the most used. In other words, about 80 percent of web users make use of Google every day, making it the ‘Big bang’ of the web. The planet has unconsciously tasked Google with the filtration of content on the net because it presents search outcome to a greater majority of the online world. But can Google actually tell the difference between good and bad content?
First off, what can also be labeled as bad content material? Asides the traditional blacklist of pornographic content, terrorist affiliations, malware and fraudulent transactions, what relatively can also be classified as dangerous content material? In layman phrases, the unhealthy content material contains knowledge that doesn't go well with the expectation of the viewers.

Being conscious of the impact they have on of the internet, Google has in its potential, tried to make sure that its audience gets quality content. No person understands Google’s obsession with wildlife and confectioneries (see Android), however over the span of 6 years, the search engine has yoked the project of discovering right content material on three separate algorithms; Panda, Penguin, and Hummingbird. With every launch in different time frames for separate tasks, Google’s algorithms have tried in fact, to filter content in every nook and cranny on the internet via making sure certain knowledge sought out by users are of exceptional quality.

Over the years, Google has evolved by constantly updating its algorithm thereby ensuring web content is well scrutinized. Let’s take a look at these key algorithms;

Panda[ - launched in February 2011 made definite that content material providers with the dependency of stealing and/or copying expertise from other sources were relegated in search results, giving customers the possibility to access content that has been common, on factor and deemed to be of ‘excessive high-quality’.

The Penguin - introduced in 2012 eliminated illegal references that affect search results.
Hummingbird (2013) mixed the attributes of the above engines with another spice, pin point accuracy in its search processes. Nevertheless, authorities have opined that Hummingbird was once deployed to enhance voice searches providing you with exactly what you requested for.

A couple of years ago, it might have been a substantial assignment for Google to differentiate between excellent and bad content but with updates and improvements in their algorithm’s form, customers can sleep peacefully understanding that Google will invariably provide the right outcome to their numerous queries.

So to a great extent through the combination of its various algorithms, Google can definitely differentiate between good and bad web contents. Have a nice day.

Training & Workshop / The Real Truth Of N-power You Are Yet To Know by ikoiikenna: Last week on Sat at 12:02am
My thoughts on the 500,000 job empowerment initiative recently launched by the present administration that struck me most is "Every participant will be given a laptop computer for the program"Somebody will say; and so?, I already have a computer?, The computers might even be fake?, Who cares?, and the likes but those words can only escape from the tongue of a shallow thinking individual. A low thinker. An end result of bribe-and-pass educational flow.Yes! Who cares if the government give 3 computers to every 1 participant?Who needs it anyways? Like the words of a popular Nigerian artist, "who heEPP"? No one! But it takes a great mind to see the bigger picture.

The ones-in-a-lifetime opportunity this could mean for you, me and for us(ofcourse without the myopic thoughts). There have never been anywhere in the world where this large number of computer is distributed to a single parastatal. The contract to distribute even a low tech 500000+ pieces of computer system runs in Billions of Nigerian Naira (OMG!). No single firm can handle this large distribution in the given time bracket.

So hello Nigerian youth, I have read both your positive and negative reactions on this newly publicized initiative and although everyone has an unchallenged right to personal thoughts and freedom of speech but so is the right to be responsible for what comes after. I have passed the stage of feeling irked by the weird and thoughtless comments I read from the handles of our supposed leaders of today and now I believe the mission of the biblical Moses should be embraced, not to lead the Israeli slaves to the promise land but to free the children of Israelites from their slavish way of reasoning. The ones who escaped "the promise land" to Nigeria.

Regardless of whether shady or transparent, fair or corrupted. Regardless of the modalities or chances of an average Nigerian getting employed.Regardless of the intent, purpose, goal or objective or whether it'll survive or not. Regardless of who's driving the program, his integrity,commitment to the cause. Regardless of the need for the program or the impacts of its existence. Regardless of party affiliation, criticism,ethnical reasoning or ideological differences clouding the success of this program, the REALITY is, Five Hundred Thousand Computer Systems will be distributed and the contract will be given out to a particular someone or group for execution.

My question then is, will you keep languishing in your penniless world (or better still, the average world of an employed youth)frolicking thoughtlessly with the gadget beautifully designed by youths like you spilling ignorantly on issues just to get on the list of contributors while hiding under the hypocritical umbrella of an alphanumerical identifiers you call username or get your ass up and think about how to benefit financially or experience wise from a program flagged in your own backyard... Your own country?!

Forgive me for been so shallow minded and having a unidirectional thought on matters that seems so ladened with endless opportunities but I'll rather push forward with the believe that somehow there is an opportunity mirages in the unstable situation of this country than languish in circle of plebeians whose thoughts has been myopically colonized and reasoning enslaved in their chained cycle of low self-esteem and limitation. This isn't to say the Nigerian dubious system as changed so much that youth can get their hands on government contracts so easy though. This piece is to encourage the few ones who understands that to hunt and Elephant, a hunter needs to break through the walls of his own limits.

I dare ask you, even when all the odds says the milky part of this program is preserved for "the peeps in their cycle", have you made an effort to break through their walls? Well, my thoughts though.

W.E/General / The Role Of Technology In Employment by ikoiikenna: Last week on Fri at 09:59pm

Technology has greatly made an impact in all aspect of human life from agriculture, banking, cooking, transportation and so on. Technology has improved our life immensely in various ways, making things being done faster and much easier.

Technology has so much improved ways in which business are done, for example with technology, you can do business with anyone across the world without even meeting the person and get paid instantly. This can happen with the improved technology we have now, that with computer and internet you can interact with someone across the world, negotiate on your business and get paid instantly. This was not possible some 20 years back.

But we want to look how technology has affected the employment market. It can be related that technology has made doing business easy and more profitable with less people on hands. This is one of the most basic fact of technology, less hands and more efficiency, which is better for business owners but not for workers. As technology improves, the more likelihood more people will loose their job.

People will loose jobs as technology improves for, technology renders some services useless. Like with the use of electronic mail, courier services has been reduced to just the transportation of heavy items that cannot mostly be sent electronically. Before mails, companies hire courier services or employ courier boys to deliver very important and personnel mails to be delivered directly. Also in the case of factories, machineries have been designed and programmed to carry out specific duty that were usually done by a number of people.

This also can be related to the banking sector, with the use of ATM, POS and now that it is possible to carry transaction through any internet connected devices, banks had reduced their workforce and branches especially in developed countries.

Also as technology is improving the workforce are not keeping up with the pace of improvement so its like they are left behind and are no more viable with the job.

So its advisable to acquire soft skills especially related to computers in the present state of the world. The world is becoming digital and hard skills are to be complimented with soft skills. Even every business that do not join the technology advancement will not survive the age.

It can be seen that most small businesses are embracing the advancement in technology, traders now put their goods online and connect to customers easily, most small shops have POS as most people do not like carrying cash and prefer any source of online transaction.

So as businesses open up to technology advancement, employers should endeavor to advance with the time and make themselves of more value by improving on their skills.

Business Ideas / Top 10 Recession Proof Business Ideas To Start Today by ikoiikenna: Last week on Tue at 04:51am

Are you looking to start a business but weary due to the recession? Do you have a great business idea you want to startup but wonder if you can successfully start during economic recession? What are the best recession proof business startup ideas? If you are asking any of the above questions then worry less, West Entrepreneur got you covered.

One of entrepreneurs nightmare is recession, it wrecks business, reduces the morale of entrepreneurs to startup new business. Recessions is often a time when thousands of people lose their jobs, it is usually a time marked with many layoff by business in a view to cut down on costs thus resulting in search for job security and recession proof business ideas.
What really is a recession proof business?

Recession-proof just as the name implies are business which still boom even in the most sluggish economy or those business ideas that can survive economic recession better than the lots, They are hardly affected by economic meltdown and they continue to trend or survive unscathed.
This post was inspired by the question one of my loyal readers asked and just like him if you are interested in knowing or starting a business which can stay strong during economic recession then here are the top 10 recession-proof business.

1. Food and Food Stuff Business
Irrespective of the economic situation, people must eat (man must chop). Starting a business that will offer healthy food stuff is profiting as it encourages people to cut down on expense.

2. Bakery
Snacks remain a must eat for all, people will always buy bread, they will always drop by for snacks and fast foods regardless of the economic trend.

3. Laundry service
Irrespective of the hard times, people want to still look good and clean and in such will always squeeze out some bucks for that.

4. Security services
Out of frustration, during times of economic trials, people often look for a way to quick food, quick money and quick everything which in most cases becomes threatening to the next upper person around; thus people often need more security during this time for protection of properties.

5. Health Care Service
Regardless of the economic situation, people will always be in need of good professional health care attention. Health care services is one sector, irrespective of economic trends remain profitable starting a business in this sector is never a bad choice.

6. Contraceptives
Whether or not the economy is fine, couples still enjoy sex even without intention to have kids, teens also have casual sex and don’t want babies thus reason why there is huge market for contraceptives.

7. Cosmetics
Application of cosmetics has become a religious act (so to say). Infact, people (especially ladies) apply their facial and body cosmetics several times a day. Economic recession is no excuse for anyone to look ugly and thus people will always pay for cosmetic.

8. Garbage Collection
Though may seem a dirty job, the returns however is an immune to economic trend. People need to dispose waste and garbage but usually finds it difficult. Starting a garbage collection relieved this hardship and in returns relieves your pockets.

9. Repairs and Fix
During economic recession, people rather repair a broken item or fix them rather than by new ones. Thus repairs and fix services business is a lucrative and recess- free profit business.

10. Personals
Irrespective of recession, starting a business involving dating can help turn the tides. Regardless of recession people are always looking to make new friends, start a new date and ultimately get married. Providing a platform that allows people to do just this will remain rewarding.

With the unpleasant Economic recession in the country, many now embrace agricultural farming as a lucrative source of income. However, amidst this number, the majority still give little or no consideration to commercial pawpaw farming for profit. Pawpaw Farming in Nigeria for long has been seen only as an integral fraction of our farms; many farmers only plant one or two pawpaw tree either for personal use or for family consumption.

Recent research shows that we have for long-neglected a lucrative source of income due to our negligence to pawpaw farming business for profit.
Pawpaw plant is a tropical plant usually found in tropical climates which bear pawpaw fruits also known as Carica Papaya.

pawpaw-treeThe papaya fruit is highly known and consumed due to its medicinal and health benefits. Papaya fruit has low calories content, contains no cholesterol and is a rich source of photo-nutrients, minerals, and vitamins. Papaya is usually preferred over other fruits because of its soft, easily digestible flesh which has a high amount of soluble dietary fiber that assists in normal bowel movement thereby reducing constipation. Ripe papaya provides high vitamin C than any other fruits (Orange or Lemon) and thus regarded as an immune booster and anti- inflammatory agent.

The First Step to start this lucrative pawpaw Farming business is to get a land composed of the right soil for pawpaw cultivation. A good preferred soil is a mixture of sandy and loam soil [but generally, Nigerian northeastern soil is also good], however, avoid water logged areas and rocky lands.

Get Seeds- Propagation
Propagation of papaya tree is via seeds. There are options to explore at this stage- either to buy already prepared Agric pawpaw seeds or prepare them yourself. Preparing or getting a pawpaw for planting simply involves getting seeds from ripped and fully matured pawpaw fruits then sun dry them. Either option can be explored but in each case ensure getting good species for planting.

There are many varieties of pawpaw, but mostly cultivated variety is the Red flesh and the yellow flesh. The ones with yellow fresh are regarded to be the best due to its big size, taste and long shelf life.

Raise Seeds
Due to some reasons in addition to the fact that pawpaw tree is a delicate plant, one is advised to plant seeds directly in the intended place while leaving a 5-meter gap in between holes. But with good knowledge of transplanting and nursery, one can initially and temporarily create a nursery bed prior transplanting. The best practice is to use big nursery bags, packed full with a mixture of sandy soil, loam soil, and manure, and then introduce two seeds per bag. Ensure seeds are located at the center of each bag to avoid damage to the roots during transplanting. Mulching, Watering, fertilizing is done for the first two months after which they are due for transplanting.

Note: Chemicals needed at this Early stage
· Vegimax- a fertilizer for healthy growth
· Dudu cypher- insecticide to killing insecticides.

Assuming you planted firstly in nursery bag/nursery beds follow the below steps to ensures safe transplant, proper growth, and maximum fruiting.
To transplant- dig 10ft holes inline but 5 meters or 10ft apart. Please note this spacing is highly recommended to ensure good exposure to sunlight and to avoid pawpaw trees from just growing tall with poor fruiting. 250 pawpaw trees are recommended for one acre of land.

Inspection and Weeding
Just like most farming, weeding and inspection of the farm are advised. The wedding is of high importance at this stage to avoid competition for food, space, water, sunlight between the pawpaw tree and the weeds which may cause poor fruiting.

Pawpaw matures very fast, harvesting commence exactly at 9 months after planting. Though at this stage, the harvest is still low or scanty, as they are yet to reach full production. But when trees are between 12 months to 18 months harvest is high and at its apex.

As early mentioned, the market for pawpaw is very huge and the demand is high, the sale of harvest can be guaranteed. Also one can start a fruit processing factory too, to make even more from this business.

The challenge of this business is minimal. However, one that must be noted is the need for good preservative means to avoid perishing of harvest as pawpaw are prone to perish.

Pets and Disease
A major disease of pawpaw is the fungal diseases which are known to damage the leaves.
Control- Spray with Dythene or Dudu Cyper.
Conclusively, Pawpaw farming is a lucrative business for any investor.

Registration/Licencing / How To Obtain An Export License In Nigeria by ikoiikenna: This month on Wed 05 at 06:27pm
In our previous post, we discussed extensively on the opportunities in exportation business and we even gave our free business plan/ feasibility report on it to get you started.
As a follow-up and in answer to some of your questions, we will be discussing the practical step by step guide to obtaining an export license easily.

Exportation business remains lucrative irrespective of the type of product you exports, whether an Agricultural product like better Leafs, better kola, soybeans, Crayfish, catfish, etc or you choose top export Mineral products, the earning potential is high. However, if you intend starting and export business on a large scale then the need to obtain an export license from the regulatory agencies becomes mandatory.
An Export License provides legal coverage for you and your exportation business and enables you to export governmentally approved export commodities.

In Nigeria, there are basically two approved government agencies commissioned to issue an export license and they are:-
Nigeria Export Council and
Federal Ministry of Solid Mineral Development.
For agricultural products and commodities, Nigerian export promotion council is the regulatory body commissioned to issue an export license. But if you intend exporting only mineral products then you need head over to Federal Ministry of Solid Minerals development as they are responsible for licensing.

Registration process:
The registration process takes a little longer time than registration with C.A.C but fairly easy when you have all the requirements which include:
- Certificate of Business- this is your certificate of business registration with Cooperate Affairs Commission. The company you intend to get a license for must be fully registered.

- Fully Filled Registration Form: - Have applied you will need to duly fill out the form given to you with you full credentials
