LAND SELECTION

Choice location for farm is upland near Doma dam in Nasarawa state with low chance of flooding. Farm size is 3.2 hectares. Also, choosing upland for rainfed cropping season (as proposed) is still the least risky alternative to floodplains.

How does an African business start? We keep focusing on why they fail but not how they start. Even when we talk about successes, the conversation is largely anecdotal and not scientific or with any rigor. We get caught up in terms and buzzwords, notice I didn’t say “startup”?

Nobody wants to fail. The greatest open secret about not failing is that it largely depends on how you start. A lot of focus on starting is about ideas and money when it should be about people, processes and regulation. …

On the evening of October 31, 2015, I got an email inviting me to participate in a 3-day hackathon in Lagos starting November 6. I was excited! The email read in part:

At the event, shortlisted teams formed around the best ideas submitted for the Challenge will leverage technology and expertise from Oracle to develop and deploy their applications at a 48-hour rapid prototyping hackathon.

I arrive Lagos in November 2015.

7 months have passed since I started working on something with 10 colleagues. We’ve created a technology solution (in 2015) to help the people no one seems to care…

If you remember this equation y = mx + c (also expressed as Y = bX + a), then here’s a story to help you understand it even more; especially in terms of real world scenario. At the end, you may find it even more enjoyable and convenient to explain this important mathematical expression to your friends, family, kids, and even the general public.

For the benefit of doubt, regression is a mathematical equation that helps us understand how a change in one thing (the independent variable) leads to a change in another (dependent variable).

Let’s assume you live in…

I found myself with a messy installation of Apache on a borrowed laptop and need to get back to work. The following steps helped me completely remove any installation so I could do a fresh install. I’m more comfortable having my localhost in /opt/lampp instead of /var/www/html.

Step 1:

Completely uninstall any existing Apache installation

(If you just want to install, skip to Step 4)

Run this to stop any instance of Apache running (don’t copy the $ sign at the beginning of command);

$ sudo service apache2 stop

Then these;

$ sudo apt-get purge apache2 apache2-utils apache2.2-bin apache2-common
$ sudo apt-get autoremove

Check if there are any…

The differences have actually been extensively discussed, but here’s a brief but concise explanation by my friend, Rashidat Blessing Mikairu.

Startups, by their very nature, are paragons of uncertainty; a lot is being figured out — revenue, business model etc. This characteristic should mean that they are able to move faster, iterate quickly and severally. A startup does not necessarily have to be “small”. Some of your biggest tech unicorns are still considered startups. In addition, that’s why some of the larger, traditional corporate companies are encouraged to adopt the startup mindset.

A small business, on the other hand, is…

The characteristics of laser that makes it different from other sources of light is (spatial) coherence. What this means is that the light emitted by laser is able to be concentrated in a tight spot. (You are not paying attention 🧐), what I mean is that laser can be focused on a tiny spot; as small as a very tiny teeny-weeny dot.

When you focus normal light on a spot on a wall (e.g flashlight), it has the tendency to spread out. By spreading out, this is what I mean; if you drop a blue ink on a wet white cloth…

Fashion selling and buying is fast leaving traditional channels, as Touchabl Pictures is stretching the traditional boundaries of fashion marketing, and with the support of technology we are offering an opportunity where fashion can be sold and bought on instant demand rather than traditional and social media hawking.
