There are steps to protect your cards and what you can do if the Automatic Teller Machine swallows your card, according to http://echeck.org. Wait for 10 minutes to restart: As annoying as it may be, I suggest you wait 10 to 15 minutes first before doing anything.

Note the date, the place you are, and the type of machine (if possible).

Image
The Registrar, West African Examinations Council (WAEC) Dr Iyi Uwadiae says the knowledge of ​m​athematics ​is very important for national development.

Image
The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, has revealed how the cut off marks were fixed for higher institutions. It said contrary to insinuations that it fixed the Tuesday’s tertiary institutions’ minimum admission cut-off marks, it was rather a collective decision of stakeholders in the education sector.

Questions to Ask a New Partner Before Having S*x

Image
Before hopping into bed with a new s*x partner, have an open and honest conversation about your s*xual histories, risks, and the last time you were tested for HIV and other $exually transmitted diseases (STDs). Knowing someone’s test results isn’t enough. “Even if your partner tested negative for HIV last week, it doesn’t mean he or she isn’t HIV positive,” says Perry N. Halkitis, PhD, a psychologist specializing in HIV at New York University. “Most HIV tests can only detect the virus starting three to six months after infection—so you should ask about your partner’s s*xual history for the past six months.” Here’s what you need to find out. Of course, you probably won’t get too far down the list if you just roll out the interrogation; but these are the questions you really do need answers to, one way or another. One option: Start by sharing your own history, and see what you get back. 1. Are you HIV positive? 2. Have you ever tested positive for a $exually transmitted disease? If so,…
