WHY STUDENTS FAIL AT SCHOOL AND THE SECRET OF MATHEMATICS AS I SEE IT…BY OBAFEMI TOLULOPE

1.WHY SOME STUDENTS FAIL

Majority of students fail not because they do not have academic potentials or are not well equipped but because they choose to fail deliberately.

Some careless students fail because they will never realize that little things matter a lot. Such careless students either over estimate or under estimate simple instructions. The consequence of this leads to failure. And when they asked to do some assignment in class, they will not do it, instead, they usually engage themselves in worthless and useless activities.

Lots of other things really contribute to failure. For instance some parent over – pamper their children such that when they get to school, they become totally useless to themselves. They tend to flout school rules and regulations against smoking, drinking and roaming about aimlessly. These are usually detrimental to their academic pursuits.

Also some parents lavish so much money on their children who in turn indulge in luxuries and lifestyles not befitting their status as learners or students. One can say some parents do not take education seriously themselves.

In many schools, girls spend most of their time “making up” just as boys do over – shine their footwear there by wasting most of their precious time with their parents’ hand-earned money for facial make-up to the neglect of their studies.

Surely, it is how one lays his or her bed that he/she lies on it. If a student is determined to succeed and tenaciously works hard, there is no reason such a student should not succeed in life.

2.ODUMOSU: OUR BLESSED GIFT.

He hails from Ogun State
He sits great among men
Day in, day out on the desk
Not boastful not selfish
And for his pupils’ success, he toils
Oh! Our gifted prince of knowledge
Raining or burning the day may be
He is ready for service.
Moving from one class to another
Giving necessary hands to students
Strict and cheerful to all workers
If everyone should realize his good deeds
Our respect for him should ever remain great
And lasting even If all names are forgotten
Yours will ever stand king in our memory
It shall be written in letters of gold
Raised high on a silver stand
Where neither dust nor stain dare come
A befitting statue shall witness your worth forever
And you shall see the goodness in the world.
Odumosu, our blessed gift

3.THE SECRET OF MATHEMATICS AS I SEE IT

Almost the enemy of most students
The most logical subject
Whenever an error is made
It never works again
Or it turns the other way round
Barrier to most education courses
Your very high average in all others subjects will not help
Unless an average is obtained in it
It is like a lion barring your way
You either turn back because you cannot cope with it
Or you kill it and go on your way
Everybody plans to kill the lion and go on
But many cannot cope with it
It therefore obstruct their ways
Also when a problem is solved
If you check it is always true
For some, it turns to be magic at this stage
They lose all hope
But cane is there, to force some to kill the lion
And continue their journey
But there are some who insist
On putting more effort
But such students should know that
Determination always wins in the end
The secret of Mathematics
Is continuous practice
So, fellow students
Do the right thing at the right time

CORCOVADO MOUNTAINS: SURELY GOD RESTS HERE!…CONTINUING THOSE LONG AGO DAYS OF MINE IN RIO BY KAYODE ODUMOSU (3)

 

CONTINUED FROM LAST POST

But three years later, with a new job and new employers I was back in Rio, this time for a real holiday with my wife.It was affordable because of a 7-day package for 2 by Varig Airlines. It allowed us know a little bit more of Rio. As dreamed, we walked the Copacabana promenade together happily taking a few pictures with our Kodak.

We visited the jewelers with me wearing a magnificient Babariga and the tallest Shagari cap you can ever imagine. My wife ,as usual, was looking very beautiful in her Nigerian native attire such that if you were told she was the Nigerian ambassador you were bound to have believed. After 8 years of marriage we had decided to change our wedding bands in Rio. But our attire had caught the fancy of the favela boys. We were aware they could be in the crowds milling in and out of shops so my wife carefully hung her bag in front of her where she was going to be aware of any funny movement or activity.But when they struck and emptied its content she never knew. Luckily for us they did not get our new bands or our money which was deeply embedded in my Babariga

The following day we took a trip to the statute of Christ the Redeemer at Corcovado which we found very touching. We also visited Pltaforma1 that night. Back in the hotel and while my wife was sleeping I decided to pen down our trip to the statute as follows:

SURELY,GOD RESTS HERE!

Breakfast and frequent ‘Obrigado’ at (Windsor) Plaza Copacabana
Recalling another score and seven years this time
On our way to Othon Palace Hotel through Avenue Atlantica
To board tour bus taking us to the statute of Christ the Redeemer

We soon put Sugar Loaf far behind us on our way to Ipanema
Recalling on the bus the track by Frank Sinatra and the famous girl
We saw the bikinis catwalking the Copacabana promenade
We saw the g-strings on the girls from Ipanema but they never seemed to see us

Rue Jardim led us directly to the Corcovado mountains
And several miles of Miliken Hills with children looking underfed
Ford cars, Fiat, Chevrolet and Santanas, all made in Brazil
But the long and winding road was hardly wide enough for two buses to share

It’s a cloudy ,chilly and lonesome road to get to the redeemer
But green lushes everywhere around you. Surely, God rests here!
Do you attempt to worship, meditate or remember Philosophy here?
You are floating in the air around when the voice of the bus guide brings you back to earth

You switch transportation to a tram for the last leg of your journey to the statute
You again noticed like at Plataforma that tourists around you are from all over the world
Nigeria, Japan, India, USA, UK, Canada, France, Spain, Mexico and even Argentina
There are also joggers on the hill emulating long-distance runners of Kenya

Then Tijuca forests with more green lushes and waterfalls beckons you welcome to the Redeemer
As you emerge from the tram you see a sea of tourists and Coca Cola sun covers everywhere
Even there are beggars holding footballs! You also see restaurants and shops selling Brazilian artifacts
Then the statute of Christ the Redeemer! Its breath-taking. A marvelous piece of architecture

Its rather cloudy but my dear brothers and sisters welcome to another world!
Come in to experience the love of God through a statute constructed by human ingenuity
You look up the statute and you immediately feel the simple message of love passed down from on high
There are also huge bulbs or strobe lights pointing and flashing illumination upwards to help you
You go around the statute expecting to see Rio from there, but you see nothing!
It’s indeed a very cloudy day. Then you go back to the shops selling junk to pick a carved piece
Of the statute and some other memorabilia of your visit which you are keeping till today
After a few photos on Kodak, you offer a prayer of thanks to God that you were there by His love.

CONCLUSION

I feel really grateful to God for allowing me  finish this write-up about our trips to Brazil. It has been a project on my mind for almost 25 years. I am elated right now and can boldly say,thank God and Godwin!

In view of the coming 2016 Olympics i might add new notes later as follows:

1.The Favelas of Rio and Nigerian Olympic tourists

2.What i got to know about  THE GIRL FROM IPANEMA recently!

Till then, peace!

THE CITY OF THE CARIOCAS AND THOSE LONG AGO DAYS OF MINE IN RIO BY KAYODE ODUMOSU (2)

CONTINUED FROM LAST POST

However, before we went to Cabo Frio we had gone through certain work and entertainment in Rio. For instance we holed up at a hotel at Ipanema which is supposed to be the best beach in Brazil. But we came to another hotel on Copacabana where the board meeting took place. After the board meeting we had lunch at a place called Churrascaria Palace which was a few blocks away. At night we went out to experience the night life of Rio including the samba-dancing place called Plataforma 1.Even after we had finished all business in Brazil I was allowed to spend a few more days before taking another flight on my own to Paris for another Board meeting by the same client My total experience of Rio was penned down ( as a half travelogue and half poem) in the hotel the night before my departure as follows:

THE CITY OF THE CARIOCAS

Restaurante Giratorio on Rua Santa Luzia
Gave me my first food and wine in Rio. It was beautiful
Followed by a visit to the Maracana that magnificient stadium
And so much delicious meat and music at Churrascaria Palace

Avenue Princess Isabel leads you to the opulent Hotel Meridien
But on your way the boys from the favelas stare at you. Welcome to Rio!
Safely at the hotel you ask about visiting Sugar Loaf Mountain on Urca
But the mention of cable cars in the air freezes your blood and you decline

So you asked about the Carnival months and schools to cover up your fears
They told you with glee that you can watch samba at Plataforma 1 instead
So there you go later in the night to see and take part in dancing samba live
And there you see visitors from races all over the world having fun without care

If you are a Bishop try to avoid Avenue Atlantica on the side away from the hotels
The Copacabana promenade is out of this world with temptation to spoil your meditation
For ordinary human beings like us sometimes we laugh and at other times feel embarrassed
Here everything goes and nothing surpasses those in bikinis or surprises revelers

Rio is incredible with exotic meals and shopping spread all over the city
But your hand can be cut if the favela boys ask for your ring and you delay
These “area boys” make you remember Michael Jackson but they don’t care about you either
They are patient and watchful and will slash your bag open before you can blink an eye open

Then you have Botafogo, Flamengo, Leblon and other less known beaches
And you ask yourself whether God created Rio for board meetings or for carnivals and holidays
The jewelers and their shops do quick business here both honest and dishonest all day long
Just like the beautiful chocolate-skinned carioca girls said to be in ratio 7 to 1 of their men

You can’t but marvel about your delicious potato salads and amazing menus
The clean surrounding of your hotel and the constant ‘Obrigados’
Also you wonder about residences without walls or barbed wire fences
And you ask yourself the obvious question ‘where are the favela boys?’

You also remember tunnels and tunnels cut deep into mountains to link parts of the city
Beautiful landscapes and green lushes when Dubai was still a kid dancing to the samba of Rio
The spectacle and the accompanying thrill of The Maracana need to be felt and not just read
The intensity within the stadium on a match day is the same as the night life of Rio

See Rio and come alive-not die. See the numerous clubs and the innumerous shows
There are precious stones all over the city for you to spend your dollars on
You can change your wedding bands if you wish cause the prices are fairer
But again be very careful cause the favela boys may just be waiting around the corner

Perhaps you have seen lots of rainbow colors on favela houses and their steel bands
But as you move towards the bridge that takes you on the way to Cabo Frio
You can’t but notice decorative houses with beautiful facades of ceramic beside the road
The arts and their handicrafts in their forget-me-not shops are uploaded with catholic religion

You then remember the Ifa and Ogun chants at Plataforma1 said to have originated from Bahia
You also remember the dancers in colorful costumes and what the bus guide said about the girls of Rio
And the offer that if you were single and wants to have a Carioca bride you should please stay back in Brazil
Was she joking or just doing her well-rehearsed job? Anyway was i a bachelor?

Lest I forget, i became an instant millionaire a score and ten years ago in Rio
Just by converting my dollars to cruzeiros as was done by all members of the board who came for the meeting
But instead of the clubs, the wine, the girls, the lights waiting to suck out my millions from my pockets
To Saara market I went the following morning to shop for my wife, children and a few samba records for myself’

That night I was on my way to Paris by Air France and that was the end of my first visit to Rio.

THOSE LONG AGO DAYS OF MINE IN RIO DE JANEIRO BY KAYODE ODUMOSU(1)

PICS OF CABO FRIO WITHIN RIO DE JANEIRO STATE (SEE ‘CABO FRIO ON MY MIND’ BELOW)

This recall of Rio de Janeiro (Rio) and of Cabo Frio (Cabo) came out of two journeys in 1985 and 1988.The first was on behalf of Akintola Williams & Co to cover the Board meeting of a client domiciled in Ibadan but with BrazilianNigerian-Lebanese connections. The meeting took place in Rio but was followed by a short visit to Cabo about 200km away.

The purpose of our journey to Cabo, I later got to know, was to get the company’s Chairman interested in investing in an estate that was developing there. And he did! But to me it was another “money miss road” by another “big man” from Nigeria. From what I knew about his investments in Europe and Nigeria and having travelled widely around the world with him I was sure he might not even come back to Brazil in the next 5 to 7 yrs!

We then returned to Rio through the same road which passed through a countryside of many orange orchards. At that time there was no highway connection to Rio. Neither was there a flight connection. To some extent it was rural Brazil like going through Lagos-Ibadan road which passed through Shagamu and Iperu-Remo in those days when we were growing up.

From this trip I have penned something which is half-travelogue and half-poem.It goes thus:

 CABO FRIO ON MY MIND

Going down a lane of memories
After a score and ten years
Touched by an abundance of varied emotions
Remembering those idyllic villas of Cabo Frio

Going from Copacabana through Ipanema
Onto the long bridge leading out of Rio
To a charming countryside with no highways
No air travels, no telecoms but orchards of oranges

200 kilometers later Cabo Frio welcomes you
With open arms, wine and barbecue
It offers you lovely beaches and surfing
Sailing, diving, water-skiing and bowling

It promises you fishing and unending dunes of white sand
Breath-taking views of a lovely coast with schooner trips
But for its charming chalets, flowered villas and peace of mind
A few thousand dollars and your banker’s assurances will do

Cabo Frio, except in my dreams, will I ever see you again?
To feel your tranquility, your soothing balms for frayed nerves
To dine in your beautiful restaurants and sway to your samba
Even if I have to off load the few dollars in my pocket

FUTA DON URGES YOUTHS TO DESIST FROM USING DRUGS…BUT WHO IS LISTENING?

FUTA DON URGES YOUTHS TO DESIST FROM USING DRUGS…BUT WHO IS LISTENING?

Proesfsor Virginia Ola (FUTA Community)

FUTA Don Urges Youths To Desist From Using Drugs

Youths across the world have been advised to desist from the use and dependence on drugs to boost performance at any level.

Speaking at a parliamentary debate on Youth and Substance abuse at the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA), Prof. (Mrs.) Virginia Ola (Head of Department, General Studies) impressed on students the need to steer clear the consumption of hard and smart drugs which have recently been misunderstood to contain vitamins and herbs which improve brain cells, avoid and treat brain damage, increase mental alertness and reduce memory loss.

Reacting to the debate motion for the provision of smart drugs for students on demand by University Health Centres, Prof. Ola expressed shock at the dependence of some youths on what they referred to as boosters.She stressed that though there could be immediate and temporary satisfaction, the end product was self destruction.

Ola called on students not to abuse their brains by staying passive and dependent, charging them to be curious, adventurous, thoughtful and out spoken.
The don encouraged them to be great listeners and researchers in order to develop the language and carriage to address emerging issues, particularly those affecting young people, the nation and the world at large.

The debate was characterized by arguments from parliamentarians which left the opposition of the motion highlighting over dose, over dependence, excessive drug circulation and abuse as some of the effects of the use of smart drugs.
