If you travel abroad frequently for work, or if you have an e-commerce store with customers from all over the world, it’s worth noting that there are a number of English words that, phonetically, don’t work in other countries and can lead to double entendre or unintended offence territory. Here are 20 of them to help you ensure that your communication isn’t lost in translation.

Preservative. Avoid asking about preservatives in France; you’ll probably be met with strange looks. It means ‘condom’ in France.

Pick. If you’re visiting Norway, don’t use the word ‘pick’. Your Norwegian colleague is unlikely to be impressed - it means ‘dick’ over there.

Fitter. Does your business specialise in fitness products? Be mindful that in Norway, the word ‘fitte’ refers to a woman’s genitals.

Peach. Going to Turkey? Avoid asking for a peach in the supermarket or anywhere else for that matter. It means ‘bastard’ in Turkish.

Gift. ‘Never look a gift horse in the mouth’, we’re told; perhaps more so in Germany where the word means ‘poison’.

Latte. In Germany, latte doesn’t mean the frothy, milky concoction you get from your local Starbucks. It means ‘erect joystick’ in some German quarters.

Salsa. Out for a Mexican in Korea? It’s probably best not to ask for salsa: it means ‘diarrhoea’ in Korean.

Speed. Try not to talk about speed when in the company of others in Sweden. It means ‘fart’.

Bump. If you’ve had the misfortune of a bump on your car, note that the word ‘bump’ in Swedish means ‘dump’.

Speed bump. Put the above two words together and you have the phrase ‘speed bump’, which in Swedish means fart dump.

Kiss. If you ask your Swedish host or hostess for a kiss, they might very well direct you to the toilets. In Swedish, the word means ‘pee’.

Pay Day. If you’re in Portugal, refrain from singing with happiness that it’s ‘pay day’. No one will be impressed. In Portuguese it means “I farted”.

Exquisite. Extend a compliment to your Portuguese host by describing something belonging to them as ‘exquisite’ and you might be met with askance looks: ‘esquisito’ in Portuguese means ‘weird’.

Cookie. If you’re visiting Hungary, whether on business or for pleasure, avoid asking for a cookie. It means ‘small joystick’ in Hungarian.

Jerry. It’s perhaps a little late for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, but if you’re in Japan, avoid using the word – it means ‘diarrhoea’ over there.

Bra. Do you sell luxury underwear? Whilst you and I might initially understand the word to mean a garment that covers the breasts, if you’re in France your French colleagues might think you’re selling arms. Literally.

Tremendous. Refrain from boasting about the tremendous prices you offer your clients. In this country, ‘tremendo’ is the word for ‘terrible’.

Bill. Asking for the bill might raise a few guffaws in the Netherlands: ‘bil’ means ‘buttocks’ there.

Lager. It might confuse your Dutch colleagues if you were to ask for a ‘lager’ when having a few drinks with them after work. Lager means ‘storage’ in Dutch.

Cool. The word cool is too close for comfort to the Spanish word ’culo’; a crude term for ’bum’. Best avoided.

Disregard call to close Turkish schools – Proprietors tell Nigerian govt
The Turkish ambassador to Nigeria, Hakan Cakil has written to the Nigerian government, alleging that some institutions in the country are owned by the Fethullah Gulen Terrorist Organization.
Cakil made the call on Wednesday when Shehu Sani, Vice-Chairman, Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, paid him a courtesy visit.

A little 9-year-old pupil has been drugged and brutally r*ped by her two teachers who could not resist her body.
Paul Murithi and Nicholas Mwirigi 
Two horny teachers have been arraigned before a court after they allegedly r*ped a 9-year-old pupil repeatedly.
According to information revealed by Kenyans, Nicholas Mwirigi Mithika and Paul Murithi Njeru of Little Angels Academy in Isiolo were arrested on Tuesday after being identified by the minor.
It is alleged that the two who appeared before Isiolo Resident Magistrate Joan Irura in a packed courtroom, had on numerous occasion brutally r*ped the girl since the beginning of the month.
The prosecution counsel revealed that the suspects used to drug the victim making her lose consciousness before engaging in indecent acts with the minor.
“You intentionally administered a substance with intent to stupefy her before engaging in sex with her,” read the charge sheet.

The girl submitted that she would faint whenever the teachers called her and on regaining consciousness, she would find herself naked.
She narrated that the young teachers used to summon her in the evening as other pupils went home after which they would commit the offence. The girl's father divulged that her daughter was found at an unknown location having been drugged and defiled, with the same being confirmed by medical reports.
In a tense courtroom full of pupils and parents, Senior Prosecution Counsel Jalson Makori, requested that the suspects be denied bail to allow further investigations and also for fear that the accused would interfere with the probe, a plea that was granted.
“Taking into consideration that there is tension, which even has been seen in court today, the safety of the accused is not guaranteed. For that reason, the court treats the reasons raised as compelling ones,” ruled Magistrate Irura.
The teachers escaped death on Tuesday after police rescued them from a furious mob that was baying for their blood.
The incident took place in Kenya.

Girls need to learn from this…talking about travelling miles just to meet a boyfriend/friend whom they can’t vouch for… Tragedy befell this pretty lady who had prospects of marrying and settling down, after her life was cut short by a man (suspected ritualist) who posed as a suitor on Facebook and deceived her into traveling to Minna, Niger state just to see him.

An SS2 student who is a notorious armed robber terrorizing Ediba people in Calabar has been arrested by the police.  
His name is Christian Donatus, alias Inyang and he is a Senior Secondary School 2 student of Eastern Secondary School, Ediba, Calabar.
According to police report, Inyang who is the leader of the robbery gang that raided Value Mart, the shop owned by former Cross River State First Lady, Obioma Imoke, two weeks ago, has been arrested. 
Vanguard reports that the 19-year-old Christian from Akokwa, Imo State, was paraded by police alongside one of his accomplices, Ubong Bassey Essien, who is from Ikot Ekpene in Akwa Ibom State, while four other members of the gang are said to be on the run.

Police Public Relations Officer of Cross River Police Command’s  Ms Irene Ugbo, revealed that Christian and his gang have been terrorising various parts of the city, raiding homes, shops and commuters and dispossessing them of their valuables. 
According to her, the gang shot a medical doctor at Akim Qua three weeks ago and also carted away safes at a shop along Marian Road, containing large sums of money. She said Christian and one of his members were arrested on July 16 by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS. 
“Efforts have been intensified to track down those on the run and we hope that very soon they will be arrested and brought to book, while these ones in our custody will soon appear in court,” she added.
The Lagos State Government through the state's Civil Service Commission is massively employing graduates in some specified specializations.

MASSIVE Graduates Employment Ongoing By Lagos State Govt. Here's How To Apply

The Lagos State Teachers’ Establishment and PensionOffice on Tuesday said that an average of 10 teachers die each month in the post-primary teaching service of the state.
The Permanent Secretary of TEPO, Sewanu Ayodele-Amosu, made the disclosure at a Sensitisation Seminar and Capacity Building on Healthy Living for Post-Primary Teaching Staff of the state.
She said that apart from sudden collapse resulting in either temporary or permanent confinement in bed, the disturbing rate of deaths among teachers in the state called for concern.
This is another contributory factor for this worrisome adverse health condition of the teachers.
“This health seminar will be held quarterly to educate teachers on the importance of healthy living and to provide support for those that have health challenges.
“This seminar is designed to effect real behavioural changes among staff of the post-primary teaching service and promote capacity for maintenance and sustainability of good and vibrant health,’’ she said.

The Lagos State Deputy Governor, Idiat Adebule, said the state government would continue to pay adequate attention to the needs of teachers as it recognised their role to humanity.
Adebule said that the Ministry of Education was working with the Ministry of Health to issue Health Cards to teachers to enable them to access prompt medical care at the state’s health institutions.
The health card will be part of the requirements for promotion as a way of motivating our teachers to go for regular health checks.
“I urge you to take out time and take care of yourselves and your health because it is only when you are healthy that you can deliver efficiently,’’ Adebule said.
Also, Mary Adenikinju, a health expert, advised teachers to exercise regularly, eat less of processed and cooked foods and eat more of vegetables and fruits.
Adedayo Famakinwa, Lagos State House of Assembly Committee Chairman on Establishment, Training and Public Service, said that teachers were curators of the future and were expected to be healthy in mind and body.
OAU Vice Chancellor Pays Visit To All Hall Of Residence For Inspection (photos))

Obafemi Awolowo University Acting Vice Chancellor, Professor Anthony Elujoba embarked on an inspection to all Hall of Residence starting from Awolowo Hall to Mozambique,and he didn't only inspect the blocks but went as far as checking the toilets.

Here are photos of his movement.

It’s no news that the AU have proposed to launch a diplomatic passport for its African citizens, this they said was to be modeled after EU’s type. Well, today, the African Union successfully launched its diplomatic African passport, the passport was launched at the opening ceremony of the 27th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the African Union.
The African Union (AU) has finally launched its continental passport. With the goal of helping to “realize the dream of visa-free travel for African citizens within their own continent by 2020“, AU leaders hope this will be a key stroke in boosting integration and free movement in Africa.
Among the first recipients of the passport were presidents Paul Kagame (Rwanda) and Idriss Deby (Chad). As it is initially available only to African heads of state, AU officials and select national government personnel, it might take a while before regular Africans will hold these passports. While there is no definite timeline, Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, African Union Commission chairperson, says the body has agreed “to create the conditions for member states to issue the passport to their citizens, within their national policies, as and when they are ready.”

Even though the African Union cites the launch of the passport as a major effort towards opening borders across the continent, there are still questions to be asked of its effectiveness.
For one, a much quicker way to make travel easier for Africans immediately could be urging countries to ease restrictive visa requirements like some, most recently Ghana, have done. Also, while it might make visas more accessible for Africans, brandishing an African Union passport at airline counters will not make air travel any cheaper. With costs of flights being a major impediment to free movement and trade, opening air routes between the continent’s biggest markets will not only drive down ticket prices but also boost local economies.

However, there are some schools where girls aren't allowed to braid their hair, there's only a single hairstyle and it's called "lowcut". Ever wondered why? Let's check out these few reasons I have below :

1. Uniformity - Apart form school wears which regulate the appearance of the students, it would make sense if the students' hair is also regulated and kept in the simplest way (lowcut).Thus, enhancing the students' uniformity.

2. Time management - The time female students spend in making their hair which would be done every week could be used for something more productive and helpful in their academics instead of spending some hours going through the pain of making hair.

3. Belief - Some schools believe that making students go through the pain of making hair every week is an unnecessary suffering so they insist girls must cut their hair.

4. Economic reasons - Looking at the cost of making hair every week, it's quite expensive after paying school fees, buying textbooks, etc.Schools mandate girls must cut their hair to keep cost of maintenance down.

5. Control - The school mandating girls to cut their hair is another means of control over their students, apart from other things they have control over.

So, there are my humble reasons, on Why Some Nigerian Secondary Schools Mandate Girls Must Cut Their Hair.
The 2016/2017 Post-UTME /Admission screening of some schools have been concluded and some other schools and institutions have released their screening forms as well as the results of those that have concluded their screening exercise.

A female teacher, Mary Beth Haglin, accused of sleeping with a pupil has blamed her former school's administrators for her alleged relationship, claiming the school administrators "turned a blind eye."

Mary Beth, a substitute teacher claimed authorities "allowed this to happen" after she was arrested for her relationship with a 17-year-old male student at Washington High in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

According to her, SubCentral, a multidistrict database for substitute teachers, should be blamed because they knew about the relationship since February but refused acting on it or reporting to police because they wanted to look good in the eyes of the public.

During an interview with CBS 2 News, she said "From April 17 to May 17, they knew and certainly probably longer than that, probably since February when they first questioned me."

''I am not shying away from this, I am not running away from this. I am facing this head-on. Previous abusive relationships led me into this. The environment the school put me in didn't help to curb anything. These people all knew what was going on, but they turned a blind eye because they wanted to protect their school and didn't want it to get into the limelight. They allowed this to happen. They knew in February."
Mary Beth has been ordered not to have contact with her teenage lover after she was released from custody at Linn County Jail and will appear in court on August accused of sexual exploitation of a minor.

A photo making the rounds on the internet, showing some students on their graduation day, has sparked a stir.
This photo has got tongues wagging since it emerged on the internet.
The photo shows a set of graduating students on their graduation day all dressed up in their academic garbs.

However, ther graduaion is not what has got people talking. What really got people stirred is the look on their faces.
Social media users have observed that they all look very bored, disinterested and sad. It's as if they were being condemned to serve a jail term.
According to a twitter user Goredema, who shared the photo, the event took place in Zimbabwe.
This is the highest point of sh0ck and disappointment for a graduate to dance and make Video in a manner like this, it is really a very sh@meful video to watch
