TIME HONOR CAPS CELEBRITY MAKING - MARK ZUCKERBERG .

Links to this post

Mark Zuckerberg, the 26-year-old co-founder and CEO of Facebook, was primarily known as a mysterious, sweatshirted figure, a Silicon Valley wunderkind familiar mainly to those in tech circles.
But this year, Zuckerberg has been thrust into pop culture ubiquity, appearing on screens of all shapes and sizes, from "Oprah" to one of the year's most acclaimed films.

On Wednesday, his public ascent was solidified by Time magazine, which named him its "Person of the Year." He's the youngest choice for the honor since the first one chosen, Charles Lindbergh in 1927.
In a posting — where else? — on his Facebook page, Zuckerberg said being named Time's "Person of the Year" was "a real honor and recognition of how our little team is building something that hundreds of millions of people want to use to make the world more open and connected. I'm happy to be a part of that."

It caps a remarkable year for Zuckerberg and Facebook, which has more than 500 million users worldwide and market valuations that go into double-digit billions. In countless redesigns and new features, Facebook has been pushing toward becoming not just a social media hangout, but also the underlying, connecting fabric of the Internet.

Time, which many expected to choose the news-making WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for "Person of the Year," cited Zuckerberg "for changing how we all live our lives."
 
"I'm trying to make the world a more open place," Zuckerberg says in the "bio" line of his own Facebook page.

The outspoken ten year old, who will be touring with Justin Bieber on his tour in Europe in March 2011 says: “I never really get to go to school because I am always on tour, or with my father.There is a tutor most of the time, but usually I am working so I never get to do the lessons.

AKUNYILI SET TO LEAVE JONATHAN'S CABINET.

Links to this post


AFTER a three-month pressure, the Minister of Information, Prof. Dora Akunyili, has decided to quit the cabinet of President Goodluck Jonathan for a Senatorial slot.
There were strong indications last night that Akunyili might leave the cabinet by the end of this month.
According to findings, the minister had been under intense pressure from some stakeholders in Anambra State to vie for a Senatorial ticket in either Anambra Central District or South, as she might like.
Among those who had prevailed on Akunyili are ex-Vice-President Alex Ekwueme; a former Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, Chief Emeka Anyaoku; ex-Biafran leader, Chief Emeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu; a political godfather in Anambra State, Chief Chris Uba; the National Vice-Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olisah Metu and the National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance(APGA), Chief Victor Umeh.
Although Akunyili is a serving minister in a PDP administration, it was learnt that APGA is "more interested in giving the minister a Senatorial ticket than the PDP."
A source said: "There is pressure on Akunyili because stakeholders in Anambra have made up their minds to field independent-minded candidates in 2011 foe enhanced representation.
"The era of godfatherism is gone in Anambra politics. When she was approached, the minister resisted but our leaders have assured her of their support.
"The challenge before her is the platform upon which she will contest. APGA wants her to consolidate its grip on Anambra but the PDP sees Akunyili as its brand."
It was learnt that Akunyili has made up her mind to vie for a Senatorial seat.
A reliable source added: "She will leave the cabinet latest by the end of this month. There is no doubt about her resignation.
"She has concluded wider consultations on her desire and the response has been encouraging."
Asked whether the minister is leaving because of alleged frustration in the cabinet, the source added: "Not at all, she has no problem with anybody."

To be frank, I just didn't have a good voice . My voice isn't good enough for singing. When you listen to people like Darey , Banky W you will understand what i am saying. I'm simply not in their class. Since I'm not gifted with the right voice for singing I decided to stick with rap music.

From The Press: Only 8% Of Lagos Residents Are Illiterates.

Links to this post



The Director General of the Lagos State Agency for MassEducation, Benedict Adebisi has disclosed that 92% of inhabitants of Lagos are literate.
Adebisi while disclosing this in Lagos, said the statistics obtained from a recent survey by the National Commission for Mass Literacy, Adult and Non-Formal Education shows that no fewer than 17, 447, 905 inhabitants of the metropolis, which has an approximate population of 18, 965, 114 people, are literate.
He said the figure represents 92 percent of the population, compared to 1,517,209 illiterate people, representing 8 percent.
Adebisi said that compared to most other states of the federation, the literacy rate in Lagos were impressive.
“The state has been able to achieve this low illiteracy rate owing to the commitment of the government and the promotion of education among the illiterate population in the past 10 years,” he said.
The director explained that the feat was achieved through the establishment of many literacy centers in the metropolis to widen access and provide appropriate literacy materials.
“No fewer than 401,000 new literate people have been produced in the state within the period,” Mr. Adebisi said.
He reiterated the commitment of the state to attaining and even surpassing the UN Education for All target of 50 percent reduction in illiteracy rate by 2015.
To achieve this and even attain zero illiteracy by the target year, the director said that the agency had evolved strategies to produce no fewer than 3000 new literate people in each of the 57 local council development areas of the state.
“This is on the proviso that there is no influx of illiterate population into the state from the other states of the federation,” he said.
Adebisi said that to actualize the target, the agency is collaborating with religious organizations, NGOs, and community-based organizations to deliver adult education to learners.
The director, however, said that the agency was handicapped by inadequate funding, as well as logistics. He explained that the agency lacked such facilities as boats, life jackets, and vehicles that could enable the agency to penetrate the mainly illiterate rural and coastal areas of the state.
He commended the federal government for the timely release of funds to aid the agency’s work, and implored the Lagos State government to increase its funding of the agency.

Alicia Keys’ & Other Celebs Come Back From The Digital Dead Thanks To Big Donation

 
Alicia Keys, Ryan Seacrest and more came back to “life” today after taking almost a week off of twitter and facebook while trying to raise $1 million dollars for Alicia Keys’ Keep A Child Alive Foundation.
Earlier today, the combined celebs had raised less than $300,000, but thanks to billionaire “Stewie Rah Rah” huge donation of half a million dollars, the foundation reached it’s goal. Money raised will go towards:
**Providing their clinic in Uganda with everything they need to care for more than 7,000 people living with HIV/AIDS for an entire year.
• Running their child rescue program in South Africa for the next 3 years, bringing justice to hundreds of children victimized by rape, and protecting thousands more.
• Provide a year’s supply of medicine, food, care and support to 1500 children in South Africa, orphaned by AIDS or living in child-headed households.
• Expand the programs at their safe-house project in India to more than 1,000 people, helping them regain their health and overcome the stigma of living with HIV/AIDS for 5 years.
By the way, Usher must have forgotten he tweeted over the weekend...

GLO NAIJA SINGS ENDS AS CASEY WINS.

Links to this post
Casey has been announced as the winner of the second season of Glo Naija Sings at the grand finale which took place at the MNET Studios in Lagos. ‘I got out of my comfort zone by performing songs by Fela with my R ‘n’B style; I had to conquer that phobia. Right now the competition is not over; I’m entering the industry so I’ve got more competition again. Everyone is expecting a successful musical career from me, something new; no one is expecting crap and that’s the task I have to live up to because I’m not going to make music for myself,’ said Casey in a recent interview.
‘I intend to invest with the money and get back to school and take care of my family. I want to learn something in a music school. I just don’t want to win this money and disappear into thin air. I want to do something big in music that’s why I have a competition, challenge and serious work to do. I have to step up, from my packaging to the kind of music people want’, he added.
Casey went home with a $100,000 cash prize and a Toyota Rav 4. He was also made a Glo Ambassador.
