It's time to give America a raise- President Obama says.......

US President Barack Obama is taking his campaign for a minimum wage rise to the streets, visiting local businesses after his State of the Union address.

Mr Obama travelled to a Maryland Costco store and a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, steel plant.

The visits promote a proposed national minimum wage increase to $10.10 per hour (£6.09) over the current $7.25.
He said on Tuesday he would issue an executive order raising the minimum wage for federal employees.

“If you work hard, you should be able to pay your rent, buy your groceries, look after your kids,” Mr Obama told Costco employees on Wednesday.

Costco workers are said to earn at least $11.50 an hour, far above the current national minimum wage Mr Obama has asked a gridlocked Congress to increase.

When will our leaders in Nigeria be the ones on the street protesting for the right of the people as it regards wages and improving living standard? Not many can afford a good residence due to it's unreasonable high cost in the federal capital, when will landlord's and agents be called to order, when? Lots of republican senators share their fear of the negative effect of this measure but I still think the intent is right. Continue to read

The whole team of Interior Majik blog wishes Oprah Winfrey a happy 60th birthday. She reached a personal milestone on Wednesday, Jan. 29: her 60th birthday. The TV mogul reflected on her life's biggest accomplishments in the January 2014 issue of O- The Oprah Magazine.

"Sixty. I'm turning 60 this month! I'm so glad I've lived long enough to say those words and celebrate their meaning," she wrote before the big day arrived. "I'm turning 60. I'm alive. Healthy. Strong."

"I'm turning 60, and—please don't take offense—I no longer have to be concerned about what anyone thinks of me! (You know, the old Am I doing it right? Am I saying it right? Am I being what or who I'm 'supposed' to be?) I'm turning 60, and I've earned the right to be just as I am," she continued. "I'm more secure in being myself than I've ever been.'

In hindsight, Winfrey is amazed that she's been able to break so many barriers throughout her 30-plus-year career. "I am in awe of the way my journey here on earth continues to unfold. My life has been marked by miracles for as long as I can recall—and even before," she explained. "My early days speaking in a Mississippi Methodist church—Baptist leanings, shoutin', and Holy Ghost included—prepared me for a future of speaking in a public arena I could never have imagined."

At 60, the savvy businesswoman wants to "share" the lessons she's learned over the years. "I want to continue to encourage as many people as I can to open their hearts to life, because if I know anything for sure, it's that opening my own heart is what has brought me my greatest success and joy.

Desmond Elliot Checked Out His Family From Nigeria!

Popular Nollywood actor and producer — Desmond Elliot has decided to relocate his family abroad. Could it be a wise decision following the turn of political events in Nigeria or it is just for a better or greener pasture for his family. The actor’s wife and four kids have permanently relocated to the United States so the kids could have a better education he says. 

Better education, you're right Desmond, considering the standard of education in public schools in Nigeria and how Nigerians have to pay their children's school fees in private schools with all of their earnings, I think he made a wise choice. But can education in Nigeria really get better? Well that is the question for all Nigerians, especially to the players in the industry.

Even though they left few months before now, people thought they went for vacation, but a source in the know has confirmed, they won’t be returning any time soon.

Desmond Elliot is still very much in town and will be visiting his family from time to time. He will be missing them for a period, but has got no room for an extra....... he is in every word a faithful husband. It pays to stay faithful to your wife and family, guys.

Following her courtiers' advice, Her Majesty the Queen's reserve fund has fallen from £35 million ($58 million) in 2001 to just £1 million ($1.6 million) in 2014. The report states the royal family is "spending above their means and dipping into the reserves...the balance now stands at an all-time low." Continue...

A cruel story of how 4 teenagers murdered a man in Utako, Abuja.

GRUESOME: 4 Teenage Boys Stab Man To Death In Abuja [GRAPHIC IMAGE]Crime rate is on the increase all over the country and stories of cruel and mysterious death are all over the news. Could this trend be as a result some lapses in the nation's security or it is just an uncontrollable turn of events. When a crime trend is not immediately dealt with it's after effect could be deadly. 
When a group of teenage boys unleashed terror on Utako Village last week, little did indigenes and residents of the village know that what initially appeared like the usual fight among boys would degenerate to the extent of causing the death of one of their own.

The victim, Alhassan Musa had woken up that fateful day oblivious that death was lurking around. If anyone had told him the boys in the neighbourhood who were in the habit of fighting one another were capable of killing, he would probably have doubted it.

Indeed, if he had known that staying at home on the evening of Thursday, January 23, 2014, would cost him his life, he would probably too have elected to move out of the area. But like they say, death does not give its victims notice in advance.

27-year old Alhassan Musa, a indigene of Utako Village was gruesomely murdered by four teenage boys in the community at about 7pm last Thursday. Many indigenes of the community who feel shattered by his death, describe Alhassan as he was called by all as a promising young man with bright prospects.

A must read by Sam Adeyemi- How to get what you want in 2014!

Life is not a reaction, it is an action. People who are highly effective in life are people who are proactive. They do not wait for things to happen, they make things happen.

One of the greatest needs of our country at the moment is entrepreneurs. Our country needs people of action. Entrepreneurs are people who refuse to surrender their lives to external forces. They are people who take initiative and use time productively. Entrepreneurs use time and chance as raw materials to create a favorable condition.

Our societal and educational structures produce people who put the responsibility on others to make things happen for them. We have a long list of what the government should do but, do we have one for ourselves as individuals?

The world is designed to be run by man’s internal forces. As a man thinks, so is he. True freedom begins from inside and not from outside. The journey from failure to success is an internal trip. True wealth begins from within you. Those who surrender their lives to external forces never succeed. TO SUCCEED, DO NOT WAIT FOR PERFECT CONDITIONS, MAKE THE CONDITIONS PERFECT.

It is frustrating to see people wait for things to happen and allow time slip by. Without a conscious effort to convert time to one’s advantage, it will be lost. People who take initiative go out and do what they need to do; making the most of every opportunity and not waiting for things to happen. They do what they have to do to make things happen the way they want them to be.

As an Aesthete – someone with a special love/understanding of art and beautiful things, this topic is of utmost interest and importance to me.

If you were given an option not considering any limitations, what kind of life will you be living? Hey don’t look at Buckingham palace or some Prince Charles kind of life and wish it or give me an answer that fits someone else’s life that you are probably watching right now. Look inwards and answer this question – What kind of life will you be living, considering you have no limitations?

The Art of Living is actually putting into best use the potentials that you have around you and within you to create all that you want to or ought to be. No one will give to you what you deserve you have to make it happen with the God given potential that lies within you, I call it your home power.

Your home is actually a birthing place for all of your dreams and desires and also for all of the world’s solution for peace, harmony, justice and equality. Home Power is a concept that exists in all aspect of human existence….. Politics, Education, Business, Entertainment, Family, Media etc.

Can we take a closer look at our homes! More on this soon.

NACOJP Youths threaten to make Nigeria a non-existing country if GEJ does not contest!

Read this and I can't tell you how angry it made it. 

The youth wing of the National Coalition for Jonathan/Sambo Presidency, NACOJP, have given President Goodluck Jonathan 45 days to declare his intentions to run in the 2015 Presidential elections or millions of youths will storm Abuja and Nigeria will become ungovernable.

Speaking at a ceremony in Abuja, NACOJP’s President, Comrade Godspower Denema, stated that Jonathan must contest in 2015 otherwise they will resort to drastic actions that might threaten the existence of the country.

“On behalf of the entire youths of Nigeria, I want to sincerely warn that if Mr. President refuses to contest the 2015 presidential election, the youths of Nigeria from the six geopolitical zones of the country will be forced to take some drastic actions,” he said.

“Some of the action may include but not limited to the shutdown of the entire country. More than 40 million Nigerian youths will storm Abuja in early February. We shall conscript Mr. President. We shall make sure that no Jonathan, no election in 2015 and most Nigerian youths shall change their national tags.”

He said that Jonathan deserved re-election in view of his “sterling performance” in his first term.

Beyonce and Jay Z tops the chart as most powerful couple in music!

Billboard Magazine dubs Jay Z and Beyonce the most powerful couple in music...
From Billboard
Who in the music industry did so better in the last year than this power couple?
Leveraging their star power to release new albums in unprecedented ways—Jay Z through Samsung and Beyoncé through iTunes—they instantly changed how the industry and fans thought about interacting with music. He gave his album away; she charged a premium price for hers. But they both used the element of surprise to restore the excitement that used to accompany a new release, before that impact was dulled by the endless thunder of carefully plotted promotion.
In short, they proved that content truly is king. Or, in this case, king and queen.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians - Kim reveals some-in-house news!

With the Kardashians it is drama, drama and more drama. Kim just told the whold that Khloé Kardashian wasn't unable to get pregnant with Lamar odoh's baby—she just knew she wasn't ready. Hmmmmm I could believe it just that I have some doubts about the statement, but if she said she wasn't ready, maybe she is right. What was sure obvious was that she worked hard to make things work between them.

Kim Kardashian explained that "the whole time" fans thought Khloé was struggling with fertility issues, "she wasn't trying to [get pregnant]." And as she said on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday, Jan. 23, it's now "more understandable" why a Khlomar baby never came to be.

APC on DSS visit to El-rufai's residence!

"APC decries harassment of its Deputy National Secretary by DSS" - by: Lai Mohammed - 24 January 2014

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has strongly condemned the harassment of its Deputy National Secretary, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, by the Department of State Security (DSS), describing as a shameful overkill the storming of his residence in Abuja by armed DSS operatives on Friday, without producing any arrest warrant.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Friday by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party expressed shock that the DSS was seeking to arrest El-Rufai for merely exercising his constitutional right of free speech.

It said there was nothing inciting or extraordinary in the statement credited to Malam El-Rufai that there might be violence if the 2015 general elections were not free and fair.

''What our Deputy National Secretary said is a statement of fact and should not warrant any harassment, unless of course the DSS is saying that the 2015 general elections will not be free and fair,'' APC said.
