Famous Comedian, Seyi Law Comes Cor Kemi Olunloyo Again

Seyi Law has spoken on Kemi Olunloyo again. While speaking with Saturday Beats, the comedian admits Kemi Olunloyo is a brilliant woman, but uses her brain otherwise. In his words, He said;

  • “I don’t have any grudge against Kemi Olunloyo. The truth is that I see a lot of brilliance in her but it is just that her way of doing things without having ethical values is what makes people get pissed at her. If she had initially written something like I saw Seyi Law’s daughter’s picture and I think he should watch the weight of his baby so that she doesn’t become obese, that would have been better because it is a piece of advice. It is a better approach and not calling my baby obese without having the necessary precautions like taking the baby’s weight, height, eating routine and other things.

    If she had done all these things before coming to the conclusion that my baby is obese, that would have been medically fine. If we were in the US or UK; providing a baby’s medical report on social media without the approval of the parents, I know what it entails and the amounts she would pay as fine. The cyberspace is not limited to a country, it is worldwide. She claims to be a citizen of the US and my child is a US citizen. I could decide to sue her in the US and she would pay out of her nose. She could even be the one to pay the money that would send my child to school. Some people are brilliant but they take their stupidity to an extent that they ruin themselves along the line. Brilliance without caution would make you become foolish. This woman can be very good sometimes with some of her reports and she could be blunt at other times with her write-up and we appreciate that but when you operate as a person, you need to be careful with your choice of words. If you want to be blunt, it has to be with evidence. You don’t just say you are blunt by writing falsehood and that is where she has a problem.”

7 Most Important Things To Do Before You Drive Out Your Car In The Morning

A car is just like our body. We do not really care about it until we have a headache or something happens. That is when we remember the doctor or hospital. This is not supposed to be the case but many of us do it. Perhaps we are scared of hospitals. It is the same with our cars. Some people just jump in their cars without checking or doing anything and zoom off. This is very risky.

It is better to take precautions before you start your car so as to avoid stories that touch.

Check below to see the things you must check in your car before you drive out your car in the morning.

1). Check the brakes
Before you set out on your journey, make sure to check the brakes and see if they have the needed stopping power. If you feel the brakes are not effective enough, head immediately to your mechanic or add more brake oil.

2). Check your tyres
Tyres are a very important car accessory. Never joke with it because you do not want it bursting while driving. Hence, check if you have a flat tyre and also make sure that it contains the required pressure. Importantly, always carry a spare.

3). Your fluids level
You don’t need to check the fluid levels on a daily basis but do so once every 15 days or at least on a monthly basis. Some of the fluids include engine oil, brake oil, power steering oil. Do not forget the water level.

4). Adjust the rear view mirrors
Adjust the rear view mirrors to the point you would be able to see a small portion of the rear end of your car along with the lane next to it on your outside rear view mirrors (ORVM).

5). Adjust your seat
You should do this frequently if you are not the only driver. As a rule, do not commence your journey unless you are comfortable in the driver’s seat. You should be able to reach up to the pedals without having to stretch your legs.

6). Fasten your seatbelt
If your car has a reminder to fasten your seatbelt, it is good. But if it does not, make a habit. In fact, today you may be risking arrest in Lagos if you fail to fasten or use your seatbelt.

7). Check the gears
Do a check to see if the gears are working properly to know if they are getting stuck or jamming up, and needs servicing. Don’t forget to put the gear back in neutral before starting the car.

Photos: Meet The New World Richest Man

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has overtaken Bill Gates and is now the richest person in the world, with a fortune topping $90 billion for the first time ever.

When markets opened on Thursday, Bezos had a net worth of $90.6b, putting him $500m ahead of Microsoft founder Bill Gates. Amazon stock opened up 1.6% on Thursday, adding $1.4b to Bezos’ net worth. That was enough to put him ahead of Gates, who was last surpassed on Forbes’ real-time rankings for just two days nearly a year ago by Spanish retail giant Amancio Ortega.

Forbes started tracking billionaires around the globe in 1987. Bezos is now the seventh person to hold the title of the world’s richest person and the third American to top the global ranks besides Gates and Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett.

While Gates and Buffett both appeared on Forbes’ first ranking of America’s 400 Richest people in 1982, Bezos is a newer addition to Forbes’ wealth rankings. He first appeared on the Forbes 400 in 1998, a year after Amazon went public, with a $1.6 billion fortune. Bezos ranked third richest in the world on Forbes 2017 list of the World's Billionaires, published in March, with a fortune of $72.8 billion.

Bezos would be nowhere close to being the world’s wealthiest person had Gates not given so much of his fortune to philanthropy. Gates, who created the Giving Pledge with Buffett to encourage billionaires to give at least half of their wealth to charitable causes, had given away $32.9 billion over the course of his lifetime through end of 2016. Forbes estimates that Bezos, who has not signed the pledge, had given approximately $100 million to charity through the end of 2015. In June, Bezos tweeted out a request for ideas for his philanthropy, garnering thousands of responses.

Bezos attended Princeton and then worked at a hedge fund before starting his online bookseller in a garage in Seattle in 1994. Amazon has since grown into an online retail behemoth selling a wide range of products. It also offers cloud services through its Amazon Web Services division, known as AWS. Outside of his day job, Jeff Bezos owns aerospace company Blue Origin and the Washington Post.

Gates fortune is built on software firm Microsoft, which he founded in 1975 with his friend Paul Allen. Gates has sold off much of his Microsoft stake but still owns about 2% of the company's shares, worth about $12.4 billion -- just under 14% of his fortune. His investment firm Cascade Investments has ploughed Gates' money into a wide variety of assets, including public stocks, real estate, private equity and venture capital. Gates owns stakes in companies as diverse as Canadian National Railway, hygiene technologies firm Ecolab and Mexican Coke bottler Femsa.

Court Sentenced Grandma To Jail For Dumping Daughter’s Day-Old Baby In Bush

A 36-year old Nigerian Grandmother, Mrs. Bosede Oyetunde, has been sentenced to one month’s imprisonment by a family court sitting in Oke Eda, Akure, Ondo State, for dumping a day-old baby boy, her grandson, in the bush.

The incident happened in Omotoso town in the Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state.

Common Mistakes People Make About Money

We’re all guilty of it at one point or the other, but if we want to have more control over our finances and make money work better for us, it is best to learn to avoid these common money mistakes that can have such detrimental effects on our finances.

Below are some common mistakes people make about money.

1). Spending Money You Don’t Have Yet
You might be tempted to splurge on one or two things and tell yourself you’ll replenish the money with your next income, however when the income comes, you quickly realize other pressing commitments come up which you have to take care of. Ultimately, you end up overspending and being broke till the next paycheck comes. This will then put you in a tight and very uncomfortable financial position in the meantime and you might even end up borrowing to make ends meet; this is likely to launch you into a vicious cycle of debt (unless you’re able to discipline yourself enough to make the necessary sacrifices to get out of it).

2). Forgetting That Small Purchases Lead Up to Big Expenses
Spending N500 here for a biscuit, then another N500 there for an exotic drink, might not seem like such a big deal at first especially when chilling on vacation. If you continue spending that way for a week, you would have spent N2500 more than you budgeted for and, though little, it can easily become a significant amount of money if you continue spending that way for a month. Little purchases add up, and rather than spending money frivolously, you can be using it to take care of important expenses like groceries. Pay attention to your ‘little’ expenses, if not you’ll be surprised at just how big they can become.

3). Not Keeping an Emergency Fund
Never make this mistake because when these inevitable times come, they can leave you completely destabilized if you’re not adequately prepared for them. It is best to have some money saved in an emergency fund or bank account, which you can earn interest on, till an emergency occurs. On the bright side, if an emergency never occurs, you would have accumulated a significant amount of money that you can enjoy or re-invest wisely to make more money.

4). Spending More Than You Earn
You either spend less than you earn or earn more than you spend- this is the simple principle. Your spending should never be equal to your earning (because you need to keep some money aside for emergencies) or exceed your earning (because this can lead to debt and avoidable ‘gbese’). Living from paycheck to paycheck (that is, spending as much as you earn) or accumulating debt because you spend more than you earn, are very inconvenient ways to live. The importance of being disciplined with your spending cannot be overemphasized and you should make the necessary sacrifices or lifestyle changes to make your spending align better with what you earn.

5.) Not Having an Allowance for Entertainment Spending
There really isn’t much more that can be said on this topic than for you to ensure you have a budget for your entertainment expenses, which you must be disciplined enough to strictly adhere to. One thing that can help in creating an efficient budget for your entertainment expenses, is to understand your entertainment needs and set up a budget based on that understanding. Discipline then comes in, to help you determine the things you can in fact do without and the things you have to do without because you can’t afford them. You can then comfortably settle at a middle point, setting aside an average range for your entertainment expenses that you’re more likely to adhere to.

"Real Madrid Contract Termination Is My Decision" - Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho claims he had to beg Real Madrid to let him go.

He, however, said he does not expect to suffer a similar ending to his time at Manchester United.

Mourinho ended his three-year stay at the Santiago Bernabeu in May 2013 by mutual consent, despite having three years left on his contract.

He then returned to Chelsea for a second spell a month later before moving to United for the start of the 2016/2017 season.

Asked what he considered the hardest part of rebuilding United following the underwhelming reign of Louis van Gaal, he told reporters: “The hardest part in my opinion was the period where there was an evolution in football overall, in terms of every other team, not just the typical powerful teams, but all the others. Their evolution in relation to the changes in football allowed them also to be economically strong.

“At the same time there was an evolution and Man United did not follow that evolution and my work is not just about arriving at a football team and developing the football team to attack, football targets and objectives, it was more than that.

“It was to go into the structure and to try to adapt the structure around the football team to a new dynamic. And that was the same at Real Madrid, a big club with big expectations but a difficult period with the evolution of other teams and the distance between Real Madrid and Barcelona growing bigger and bigger and bigger.

“When I arrived it was not just about developing a football team to try to stop that domination, but to also develop everything around the team and in that respect I can see similarities in terms of the difficulties and similarities in terms of the dimension of my job.

“I think what we did last season, Europa League, League Cup, sixth in the Premier League is what gets into your eyes. But I know that my job was much more than just the success in some competitions and being unsuccessful in the Premier League.

“To be honest, with the club [Real]’s structure, they wanted me to stay, they didn’t want me to leave. Everybody in the club, president, CEO, the board, myself, we all felt after the years I was there that the difficult part of the job was done and they wanted me to stay.

“In fact, I almost had to beg to let them let me go. I don’t think that at United is going to happen, because I don’t want to go.

“Real Madrid, for me, was really something that I wanted to do. It was something I had a chance to do twice before and didn’t. And on the third time, I don’t think you can say ‘no’ three times to such a club. I wanted to go and win the title in Spain, but it was not for me to stay. I was not in love with my life there. I wanted to come back to England and in that case, to Chelsea.”

See Photo of French Mayor as He Eats RAT After Losing Bet On FC Barcelona

FC Barcelona 's surprising Champions League bounce back over Paris Saint-Germain last season forced a French mayor to eat a RAT after a bet backfired.

With PSG hammering Barca 4-0 in the first leg of their last-16 encounter, Charles Dayot of Mont-de-Marsan — a commune in southwestern France — took to Facebook to announce he would gobble down the unappetising dish if the Ligue 1 giants were dumped out.

But Dayot was left with no choice other than to swallow his pride along with a cooked rodent when Barcelona completed the unlikeliest of victories.

Although the Spanish giants led the second leg 2-0 at half-time, the bullish mayor was far from ratty as PSG appeared likely to score at least once at the Nou Camp.

A 50th-minute Lionel Messi penalty left him biting his fingernails but Edison Cavani netted just after the hour mark to leave the Spanish giants facing an uphill battle once again to turn the tie in their favour.

However, Messi and Co refused to throw in the towel and two late goals from Neymar — one a penalty — were followed by a last-gasp strike from Sergi Roberto.

With Barca winning 6-1 on the night and 6-5 on aggregate, Dayot was left facing the horrifying fact that he would have to munch on vermin.

And although it took him a while to stay true to his promise considering the tie was decided in March, he donned a PSG shirt as a napkin to tuck into is rat dish on Sunday.

He even went as far as to suggest the unusual cuisine actually tasted like rabbit — proving there really is no accounting for taste.

"All Thanks To God, The President Is Recovering" - Ebonyi State Gov, Dave Umahi

The Governor of Ebonyi State, Mr. Dave Umahi, has described the rate of the recovery of President Muhammadu Buhari as a miracle.

Umahi, who is one of the seven governors that visited the President in London yesterday night said that he and his colleagues were surprised with the level of his (President) recovery.

Apart from Umahi, others governors in the entourage are Udom Emmanuel (Akwa Ibom); Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara); Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo); Samuel Ortom (Benue); Umar Ganduje (Kano); and Kashim Shettima (Borno).

Six of the governors were chosen based on the six geo-political zones in the country while the governor of Zamfara State was picked because of his position as the chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum.

Umahi, who was one of the two governors from the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, said that it was difficult for members of the opposition to believe what they were being told by the handlers of the President that he was getting better.

He, however, said that he was happy, just like the other six governors, that the President was making progress and that he had improved very well.

The governor said the President would soon return to the country as soon as his doctors certified him alright.

He said, “We met a cheerful President whose level of recovery is a miracle. We know he will soon return home as soon as his doctors certify him to do so. What he’s treating is not mere malaria that we can say he will return today or tomorrow.

“However, we are happy and we thank God for what we saw. It is contrary to the pictures people are painting on the social media. The President we saw is recuperating well and we are happy for that.

“It is even better that, we as members of the opposition party, are among the entourage. Nigerians should continue to pray for the President.“

Asked whether the President told them the likely date of his return, he said no, adding that there was no need to be too expectant, saying that the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), was doing a good job.

“We don’t need to panic because we have a hardworking acting President who is doing a fantastic job. All we need to do as Nigerians is to continue to pray for the President,” the governor added.

IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu Says Court Can’t Stop Him

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, on Monday, granted an interview to some journalists in Enugu.

Kanu was in Enugu to receive awards from a number of pan-Igbo groups, including the Igbo Women Assembly, the Eastern Consultative Assembly and the Igbo Students Union.

Justice Binta Nyako had barred Kanu from granting interviews, and being in gatherings of more than 10 persons, when she granted the IPOB leader bail.

Asked if he was not worried that he could be re-arrested for flouting the bail conditions by granting the interview, Kanu said the court cannot stop him from speaking.

He said he was only responding to questions asked him by journalists.

According to him, refusing to respond to the questions would be seen as a sign of arrogance on his part.

He said, “I am replying you. That is what I am doing. I am not giving an interview, I am responding to the question you asked me.

“The judge is a very learned fellow. She cannot stop me from speaking.”

Kanu added that President Muhammadu Buhari and the Department of State Services were the ones that are guilty of flouting court orders.

“Buhari and the DSS have been in multiple breaches of court order after court order. I wish you can go to the DSS and ask Daura, what is his name? Lawal, whatever his name is, the DSS Director General, why DSS does not obey court orders.

“They are the ones flouting the court orders. It’s not me.

“What I am doing is entirely legal. You ask me a question and I respond to you because if I keep quiet you see me as a very arrogant fellow.”

Nigeria President, Muhammadu Buhari Says He Is Progressing

President Muhammadu Buhari says he is making good progress in London, United Kingdom where he is currently receiving medical attention.

He has also expressed his readiness to resume work once his doctors give him the go ahead.

According to a statement today by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President made the disclosure in a “thank you” letter he wrote to the President of Guinea, Alpha Conde, for the nationwide prayers held last week by Guineans for his recovery and good health.

Adesina said the President had earlier made a phone call to Conde, who is the current Chairman of  the Assemblies of Heads of State and Government of the African Union. Buhari’s letter to Conde dated July 24, 2017, read, “I thank you for your kind and thoughtful action in organising nationwide prayers for my good health. ” It is a gesture that I will forever cherish and treasure.

“Your Excellency will be pleased to hear that I am making good progress, and as soon as doctors advise, I shall return to my duties and continue serving the Nigerian people who elected me and are daily praying for my recovery.

” In an earlier letter,  Buhari was said to have also accepted his nomination as leader of the ‘2018 AU Theme on the Fight Against Corruption’, which came from African leaders at the 29th Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the AU in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on July 4, 2017.

“While thanking you for the kind words and for the nomination, I wish to express my readiness to accept this new important role and to reiterate my commitment to contribute towards our collective efforts to strengthen good governance and development on the continent.

“I, therefore, look forward to working closely with you in the realisation of this objective,” Buhari was said to have written in the acceptance letter.

"Always ‘Visit’ And ‘Protect’ Jerusalem" - Turkish President Erdogan To All Muslims

 Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan today urged all Muslims to visit and protect Jerusalem after violence broke out over metal detectors that Israel installed and later removed from a sensitive holy site in the city.

"From here I make a call to all Muslims. Anyone who has the opportunity should visit Jerusalem, Al-Aqsa mosque," Erdogan said in Ankara. "Come, let's all protect Jerusalem."  He was referring to the site, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, which is central to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Israel installed metal detectors at entrances to the site, which also includes the Dome of the Rock, following an attack on July 14 that killed two Israeli police officers.

Palestinians viewed the security measures as Israel asserting further control over the site and deadly clashes erupted during protests.

"They are attempting to take the mosque from Muslim hands on the pretext of fighting terrorism. There is no other explanation," Erdogan said in a speech to ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) lawmakers in parliament.

He said Israel's legitimacy rested on the extent of the respect it showed to Palestinians and their rights.

Erdogan also denounced attacks on synagogues in Turkey, referring to reports that an ultra-nationalist group threw stones at a synagogue in Istanbul last week.

"It does not make sense to attack synagogues here because something has happened at Al-Aqsa mosque. This does not suit our religion and it is not allowed,". Erdogan said.

North Korea Says They Have Nothing To Do With US Travel Restriction

Washington's ban on US citizens travelling to North Korea will have no effect on the country's tourism industry and Pyongyang does not care about it "at all", a senior development official insisted.

The measure is due to be enacted this week and once it goes into force US passports will no longer be valid for travel to the isolated country, which is subject to multiple sets of United Nations sanctions over its nuclear and missile programmes.

Around 5,000 Western tourists visit the North each year, tour companies say, with about 20 percent of them Americans. Standard one-week trips cost about $2,000.  But Han Chol-Su, vice-director of the Wonsan Zone Development Corporation, denied the loss of business would have any impact.

"If the US government says Americans cannot come to this country, we don't care a bit," he told AFP in Pyongyang.

Washington announced the move after the death of Otto Warmbier, the University of Virginia student who was sentenced to 15 years' hard labour in the North for trying to steal a propaganda poster.

Warmbier was sent home in a mysterious coma last month -- Pyongyang said he had contracted botulism -- and died soon afterwards, prompting US President Donald Trump to denounce the "brutal regime".

The State Department has long warned its citizens against travelling to North Korea, telling them they are "at serious risk of arrest and long-term detention under North Korea's system of law enforcement", which "imposes unduly harsh sentences for actions that would not be considered crimes in the United States".

Court Sentenced Man To Life In Jail For Allegedly Killing Girlfriend's Little Son

A man who beat his girlfriend's five-year-old son to death simply because he lost one of his trainers has been sentenced to life imprisonment.

Marvyn Iheanacho, 39, of Wesley Avenue, Hounslow, but of Nigerian origin was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum term of 18 years (less time already served) at Woolwich Crown Court on Tuesday, 25 July after being found guilty of the murder of Alex Malcolm.

Detective Chief Inspector Tony Lynes, of the Homicide and Major Crime Command, said: "Iheanacho subjected that poor little boy to a brutal assault after flying into an uncontrollable rage just because Alex lost one of his shoes.

"Afterwards Iheanacho came up with various stories to try to cover his tracks, insisted his girlfriend lie for him and attacked her when she tried to get medical help for her unconscious son.

"It is no surprise the jury easily saw through his stories and while nothing can bring Alex back, I hope Iheanacho's conviction today provides his mother and father, and their families with some comfort."

The court heard that on 20 November 2016, Iheanacho had spent the day with his girlfriend, Alex's mother, and Alex. Later that afternoon he said he wanted to go out to get a DVD and see a friend and would take Alex with him.

CCTV showed the pair getting on a bus at 16:39hrs heading towards Rushley Green. They were then seen walking towards Mountsfield Park in Catford, arriving around 17:15hrs.

They went to the play area.

Just before 18:00hrs, a witness heard Iheanacho shouting at Alex after he realised the boy had lost his shoe.

Through the park gates she saw Iheanacho and described him as "raging" at Alex who was keeping very quiet.

She then heard repeated booming noises and saw the gate vigorously moving as if it was being punched by someone.

The witness's dogs began barking and the punching stopped. She saw Iheanacho bending over Alex and whispering to him before they moved away.

Another witness heard the loud banging, a male voice screaming about the lost shoe and a child's voice fearfully saying sorry.

The prosecution said the banging noise was Iheanacho assaulting Alex.

8 Easy Ways Broken Relationships Can Be Reconcile

Broken relationships are the result of a broken world. They are bound to happen. Yet the disappointment, heartbreak, and emptiness never seem to sting us any less.

When this happens, there are two reactions that follow: locking our heart to future hurt or grappling with the process of forgiveness.

“Forgive us of our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us,” we say in the Lord’s Prayer. As Christians if we choose to follow a Christ-like life, we cannot lock our hearts to hurt. We must choose the path to forgiveness every time. What does that look like? Where do we even begin?

Below are 8 Easy Ways Broken Relationships Can Be Reconcile.

(1). Emotionally (and physically) step back. 
Sometimes, out of sheer desperation, we find ourselves overcrowding our thoughts and hearts with a relationship gone wrong. Where did we go wrong? What could we have done to avoid this? Will the relationship be able to recover?

It exhausts us! When we emotionally, and even physically, step back from a relationship, we are able to come to grips with our current emotional and spiritual state. We are able to understand ourselves and our situation with a more rational perspective. We are able to better take care of ourselves.

The answer to mending relationships never begins with impatience or a distracted heart. Jesus tells us, “Peace be with you,” for a reason!

(2). Go to church. 
What better place to begin cleansing your soul than with Jesus? Church is not made for the perfect, it is a place for the sick. It is a house for those that need healing.

Even if it takes all of you--loneliness, heartbreak, defeat and all--take a seat and listen to Word. Listen to the message for the service. God knows every corner of your heart. How is He using this time for your spiritual, emotional, and physical healing?

(3). Examine your conscience. 
There are two sides of every story. Because there is hurt, misunderstanding, and pain in a certain relationship, there is dissonance in the stories. Without excuses, where have you fallen short in this relationship? Where might you have sinned?

None of us are perfect. When your child screamed at you, did you scream back? When your friend did something that disagreed with you, did you gossip? When your parents asked something of you, did you disobey? When your coworker asked for a favor, did you make an excuse (lie)?

Understand your faults. The first step to recovery is admitting there is a problem.
(4). Find solutions. 
Once you understand your faults, find the solutions.

So your child has a temper and can lash out; how can you de-escalate the situation in the future? So your friend is behaving unfavorably; can you make time to sit down and confront the situation?

How can you remain an example of Christ in situations that have headed south or are heading south fast?

(5). Practice your virtues. 
It is not enough to call ourselves Christian by name. We are also required to act like it. In the breaking points, when we find ourselves at our wit’s end, our pride can be at an all-time high. Why can’t they see my side? Don’t they see how much they hurt me? They have to apologize first.

In these moments, it is most important to practice humility. It’s important to practice our patience. It’s important to show perseverance and not give up. Jesus humbled himself for us, dying on a cross. Jesus is patient with us through our sins and setbacks. Jesus pursues us again and again, no matter how many times we fail him.

To follow Christ, we must follow in His example in all aspects of our lives and act as he would.
(6). Communicate with contrition. 
Contrition: the state of feeling remorse. In some situations, we will need to be the first to reach out. At this point, we’ve reflected on the relationship. We understand what went wrong and we know the ideal solution.

From here, we have to step back into the ring. We must face our loved one--family, friend or coworker--and communicate with contrition. This requires serious humility and patience. When we communicate with contrition, we show our loved ones that we value their relationship over our differences and past transgressions.

We are sorry for the turn our relationship has taken, and we want to recover from it.
(7). Give it time. 
Let’s be honest: Depending on the relationship, it may not be restored right away. If this relationship has been damaged for a long time, there is healing that the loved one will have to go through in order to bring their best self back to you.

Remember that you have built yourself up for this moment. It is their turn to take personal stock of their emotional and spiritual state. Sometimes all we can do is show patience and a willingness to cooperate and support the other.
(8). Love, love, love. Repeat. 
Finally, do not forget to shower your relationships with love and compassion. Answer every situation with love, just as the Lord answers to us with only love. Broken relationships are hard; they hurt and we hate to suffer. Yet Jesus suffered for us so that we could be saved. Let us suffer for those we love, because these relationships are worth saving too.

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)

Tech: For India To Protect Her Solar Manufacturing Sector: WTO, Suitable Policy Changes Should Be Made

India has to make suitable policy changes by December this year to remove measures it had undertaken to protect its fledgling solar manufacturing sector from foreign competition, according to a recent notice issued by the Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) of the World Trade Organisation (WTO). DSB adjudicates on trade disputes between national governments.

“The United States and India have agreed that the reasonable period of time for India to implement the recommendations and rulings of the DSB in the dispute ‘India – Certain Measures Relating to Solar Cells and Solar Modules (WT/DS456)’ shall be 14 months from the 14 October 2016, date of adoption of the DSB recommendations and rulings. Accordingly, the reasonable period of time expires on 14 December 2017,” DSB said in a communication on 16 June.

“We have been given time till December and have been asked to complete all on-going projects. We will not be able to keep the provision of a secure market for Indian suppliers. Even Indian projects, which are owned by the private sector, cannot have Domestic Content Requirement (DCR),” said an official in India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE). “However, WTO permits us to do projects by the government. So, if the government or its public sector units are undertaking a project, they have the provision of DCR.”

On 6 February 2013, the United States had requested consultations with India concerning certain measures of the country relating to domestic content requirements for solar cells and solar modules. The matter reached the level of a dispute, was taken to the WTO, and was settled in October 2016 in the favour of the US. The June statement comes after India accepted the ruling.

The December deadline is not a surprise, according to Raj Prabhu, CEO and co-founder of Mercom Capital Group, a clean energy consultancy. “Public sector units were already reluctant to tender DCR projects due to cost issues. The government has finally realised that it has to pay from its own pockets to pursue protectionist policies,” he told . “Some manufacturers will lose out, but most have not invested in R&D, so the result is not unexpected.”

According to Bridge to India, a renewable consulting firm, India provided some breathing room to local manufacturers through DCR and toyed briefly with anti-dumping duties. However, such protectionist measures have not helped local manufacturing anywhere in the world and the share of imports in India has continued to go up from 74 percent in 2014-15 to 89 percent in 2016, it said.

There are no real threats to the Indian solar industry in the short-term, Prabhu said. “The government is all for lowest power prices and it is doubtful they will disrupt the markets when they are getting solar power at cheaper prices than coal.

With DCR tenders disappearing, some manufacturers will fail, but most of the jobs in solar are in project development and not manufacturing.”

The Indian solar sector had brushed aside any worries earlier as well. However, there had been some concern just after the WTO ruling came out.

Madhavan Nampoothiri, founder-director of RESolve Energy Consultants, also believes there will be no major impact due to this ruling. However, the capacity utilisation of domestic manufacturers, which is already low at an industry level, could go down further, Nampoothiri said.

The MNRE official said private developers who own a project, and install and develop it on their own and then sell power to the discoms will not have the DCR component.

But projects owned and undertaken by government-owned National Thermal Power Corporation, Coal India or Solar Energy Corporation of India will continue to have the local content policy. “We have a scheme called Central Public Sector Units (CPSU) and, under this, there was a target of 1,000 MW. Now, we are in the process of bringing the second phase of this scheme, which will have a target of 7,500 MW,” he said. “Once that comes, the Indian industry supplier will have an adequate market.”

Prabhu explains that even when the DCR category was in place, Indian manufacturers were way behind the Chinese. “As of now, there is no competition between the two as Indian solar manufacturers form a negligible part of the global solar manufacturing industry. Solar tariffs have been going down largely due to cheaper Chinese modules, for example, in Rewa, Kadapa and the Bhadla solar parks. The Indian solar market is completely dependent on Chinese modules now and the Chinese are subsidising Indian solar installations.”

“It is a fact that our suppliers are not competitive enough. Their prices are higher than the imported ones and that is precisely the reason why for the developer mode projects, they would always opt for the cheaper Chinese modules, since they have to compete,” said the MNRE official. “When it comes to bidding for a tariff, the cheapest one will give benefits, so they opt for it. This is unfortunate but is the case now.”

Bridge to India suggests that instead of considering a short-term response to this issue, “the Indian government should consider long-term implications for the sector and send a clear policy signal to reduce uncertainty for all stakeholders.” India’s National Solar Mission talks of creating a domestic manufacturing supply chain. However, market dynamics have not supported that vision, says Prabhu.
“Currently, the Indian module manufacturing business model is built on importing Chinese cells and assembling them in India.”

The MNRE official said that the Indian government doesn’t want to remain dependent on imported solar cells modules and is committed to supporting the industry. “We will ensure that some kind of policy is always in place to support the solar industry,” he said.
