Do you know that snail causes brain disease, you probably don’t know?
Have you asked yourself if all these snails you are dealing with carrying diseases? Does it mean that other animals may carry diseases and snails don’t?
You are wrong in thinking it does not. It carries a deadly disease.
Although not poisonous, giant African land snails are capable of transmitting some diseases to humans. These snails can become carriers of Angiostrongylus cantonensis, a parasitic worm if a snail eats droppings from a rat that also carries the disease. Infection by rat lungworm, as it’s more commonly called, can cause meningitis in humans. The worm could be transmitted from a snail to a human if the human ingested the snail. It’s also possible for these snails to transmit salmonella and other bacteria to people, especially if the snails were living in the wild
It has been found that snails may cause brain diseases. Recently, 10 children affected with brain diseases in Ernakulam were found to have contracted it from these snails.
How do we get the snails? All of you pick snails from outside or from farms or gardens. These dangerous rats are found in the bush and snails eat their droppings. The snails are just carriers, they are not affected. But when humans touch them or their slime, there is trouble. You have to keep children away from snails you are not sure of.
Have you ever wondered why snails come to your house or walls? The average snail needs a lot of calcium to keep its shell strong and safe against enemies. So it comes to your walls to suck the calcium from the cement you use and that is why they come close to the house.
Advice: Please STOP picking snails and rearing them, it is very dangerous. But from farms, because the snails there are kept away from contact with others in the wild. Just be careful. I see people picking snails and they don’t know what they are doing. Please wash your hands very well if you do; the slime is where the disease is.
Five Stages in Dating You Need to Know
Here are five stages in dating that you need to know, at a point in our lives we tend to need someone by our side, a person who can comfort us in our trying times, a person who understands our mood and accepts our flaws.
When we find that type of person then we decides to date the person.
While dating a person we must understand that there are stages it takes before we may finally accept to marry the person.
Here are the fives stages in dating that you need to know:
Every couple experiences this stage. In this stage, everything seems so beautiful, amazing, spotless, and wonderful. The focus at this stage is only on the good things you both will share.
In this stage, you both will spend more time together chatting, calling without missing a day, going out together, and laughing at every silly joke you both cracks whether it’s funny or not.
This stage is when you’ll start finding flaws in your partner. Not that you don’t love them anymore, but things will no longer be as it was.
At this stage, you can go a whole day without calling, texting, or chatting with your partner even if you are seeing them online.
3. ANGER AND CHILDISH BEHAVIOUR:
You’ll start getting angry over every little misunderstanding. Those silly jokes you use to find funny back then will now start sounding like an insult to you.
You’ll no longer be afraid of losing your partner. You’ll start talking to them disrespectfully about every little mistake they make.
And in this stage of the relationship, you’ll start casting blames on your partner and you’ll start thinking about how you’ll leave the relationship.
Most relationships are bound to fail at this stage if couples are not aware of the stage they are in. And also at this stage, cheating is inevitable if both parties are not disciplined
This stage is when you will realize that you both are different individuals from different backgrounds, who have different qualities, who are not perfect, but still, you both have chosen to stick together
5. COMMITMENT AND SUBMISSIVENESS:
With time, you’ll get to know each other so well that you’ll be committed and submissive to each other. Now at this stage, you’ll no longer hide anything from your partner, and you’ll no longer thinking of spending your life with anyone else apart from your partner.
And also, this stage is when couples are aspired to get married; because they now know themselves very well to the point they are no longer afraid of the unknown or the future.
The Relevance of Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE)
The relevance of the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) is that students sit at the end of junior secondary school since the certificate they acquire does not contribute to their employability in future.
I must say, this is a typical certificate-oriented Nigerian question.
The relevance of the Nigeria Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) is as stated below:
The Basic Education Certificate Examination is one of the most powerful tools we have in our education system. It is meant to help students determine their pathways after JSS3.
It should be used:
1. To highlight if a child should continue the academic pathway by going into SS1 or tow the technical/vocational pathway by joining a technical or vocational school. There, they will become trade certified in their chosen fields and can start to work and earn money after three years of education.
2. To help secondary schools determine the strengths of students who decide on the academic pathway. The subject grades will help schools guide/mentor students on subject choices for Arts, Science or Humanities Department.
3. To predict students’ grades in WASCE. If a child scores a C in English Language in BECE, chances are they will score two levels below that in WASCE without interventions. The school can then put plans in place to improve those grades within the next 3 years.
4. As a tool for school improvement. If properly analysed, it can tell a school its subject strengths and weaknesses. I say up to 30% of a school fails the English Language in BECE, it shows the school is very weak in that area and they may need to look at the teachers, the curriculum, the timetabling, etc on a whole-school level.
Unfortunately, many schools (and supposed professionals) don’t even understand how to use assessment as a tool for students’ progress in general terms…and this type, for national development and planning
We have to understand that assessments aren’t always for the certificates or the future; sometimes they are for now…for data…that leads to interventions and measurable progress.
An employer shouldn’t have any business with your BECE results, actually…maybe, even WASCE
Corruption and fake certificates are what brought on verification exercises in government employments.
