Nigeria’s crude oil crashes to $31.49 per barrel

As the Federal Government grapples with how to salvage the economy, the continued sliding of the price of crude oil may require that its effort should be intensified.
Indeed, Nigeria’s Bonny Light crude oil hit its lowest level at $31.49 a barrel at the weekend due to global crude oil glut at the international market.
The price of Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) basket of 12 crudes stood at $31.49 a barrel compared with $32.28 it earlier recorded.
The new OPEC Reference Basket of Crudes (ORB) is made up of the following: Saharan Blend (Algeria), Girassol (Angola), Oriente (Ecuador), Iran Heavy (Islamic Republic of Iran), Basra Light (Iraq), Kuwait Export (Kuwait), Es Sider (Libya), Bonny Light (Nigeria), Qatar Marine (Qatar), Arab Light (Saudi Arabia), Murban (UAE) and Merey (Venezuela).
But to ease the fuel crisis in the country, the Federal Government has directed the Pipelines and Products Marketing Company (PPMC) and Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) to embark on renewed special supply intervention measures to ensure a countrywide availability of petroleum products ahead of the Yuletide and beyond.

Feeling angry, or is someone getting you pissed? (Anger management)

Feeling angry, or is someone getting you pissed? Do not let one angry moment ruin your day , your week, your month, your year or your life. It is not easy most times to not be angry when it seems right to do so. Can you choose not to be angry? is this even possible. How do you deal with anger issues.

There are many ways one could deal with being angry, and it will definitely be hard to find one solution that fits all as contexts and cases will always differ. However, a good place to start from could be to ask yourself this question, WHY??

And continue asking why till you find the answer inside of you, the truth in your inside will speak the answer to you and you will reunite with peace again.

e.g., Someone slanders your name or slaps you. This is sufficient to make most people angry right? Yeah. Lets ask ourselves the Whys

Why are you angry?
Answer: This person just slapped me, slandered my name, spoke ill of my person, disrespected and insulted me. or whatever other way this has made you feel.

Why did they do that?
You may know the answer, or you may not. You could find out or you may not. Could be politically motivated, it could be a joke (an expensive one), it could be just attention seeking, whatever the reason might be.

Are you feeling angry?? do you feel the negative emotion rising, Its an energy from inside of you, rising like fire, looking for more fuel. From the answers to the first two whys you may have found a good source for this fire of anger. Like the fire triangle, removing one of the components of the fire triangle can stop the fire. The source, Oxygen and combustible material(fuel). Replacing the thoughts on the hurt done with more positive thought can have huge impact on this angry fire burning inside.

The way I interpret this is making excuses for people. Giving them grace instead of punishment for their wrong. If someone does me wrong. Instead of dwelling on the answers to the 2 whys, why am I angry and why did he slap me. I will focus my mind on the excuse i make for the person and feel more positive energy. The anger just flies away. e.g wow that slap was painful, if it was a joke, then I get it, but i will just let him know i don't appreciate such jokes, If he was looking for a fight, I will laugh it off, and say wrong address, why should we fight, I am not interested. If he was trying to be oppressive. I will see that as his own problem, an inferiority complex he has, that makes him try to assert his better-ness over others. I just laugh it off and go away happy. I always make excuses for people as it creates a better energy, plus keeps the heart light and free of excess thoughts. Just pick one excuse, walk away and let your life go on.

Are you saying we should just allow people go on with their bad attitudes?  ermm, no, Just saying you maintain your own positive energy around you, and not allow the ills and negatives of the other person rob you of your own happiness. You can be of better help to the person when you are positively aware and most times after the heat of the moment. When a person comes with some negative heat, or unpleasantness, do not feed this negative energy, its like a trap. That little fire of anger inside, calling for more fuel, calling for a reaction from you that will feed the angry fire. Do all you can to resist this temptation. To help, much later, make subtle and positive suggestions on how the other person can get better. Yeah, you can not be bothered about helping the other person if you are still dwelling in that negative hurt as well. You ought to have let it go and mind your language when starting the dialogue. Avoid using aggressive language. Approach this dialogue from a positive place.

Some Tips:
If you are becoming angry, take a deep breath and try counting down from 10 - 1. as in 10, 9, 8....etc.

If you are driving, and you are becoming angry, what I do sometimes, is try to take my mind way from the negative thought, and look for ways to help someone, like another motorist trying to get in my way, just allowing them go in before me, and they nodding and raising a hand in appreciation, normally releases some positive energy. Or pedestrians trying to cross....

Best still don't drive when angry.....

There are other deeper and simpler approaches to dealing with anger. However the deeper and simpler approach might sound too simple and unconventional for many and can only be received when the individual is ready. However post has presented an approach to dealing with anger from the writers point of view.

Thanks for reading....

TRUTH: Did Paul say Women should remain quiet in church??

2 Timothy 2:15  Rightly divide the Word of Truth.

1 cor 14:
33 For God is not a God of disorder but of peace—as in all the congregations of the Lord’s people.
34 Women[f] should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the law says. 35 If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church.[g]
36 Or did the word of God originate with you? Or are you the only people it has reached? 37 If anyone thinks they are a prophet or otherwise gifted by the Spirit, let them acknowledge that what I am writing to you is the Lord’s command. 38 But if anyone ignores this, they will themselves be ignored.[h]
39 Therefore, my brothers and sisters, be eager to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues. 40 But everything should be done in a fitting and orderly way.

Looking at the above, you would see some contradictions. How will Paul say women should be silent in verse 34 and same time say in verse 39. my brothers and sisters, be eager to prophesy and  do not forbid speaking in tongues.

Paul could not have said about women prophesying in 1 Corinthians 11 and go on to say women should be silent in 1 Corinthians 14.

The truth is there is no contradiction. If you follow the story from the beginning, you would see that there was a central theme bothering around orderliness in worship and verse 34 and 35 seems out of place. The reason is because Paul was responding to letters they had written to him, hence verse 34 and 35 was a quote from their letters. They were pointing to their Law, how women were not allowed to speak. Paul questioned them asking if they were the only ones who had God's word or if the Word of God originated from them. In KJV verse 36

36 What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?

This was an interaction between Paul and the Corinthians, he was responding to a letter they wrote earlier.

1 cor 7:1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
So the book of 1 Corinthians was Paul's response to their letter to him, and he did quote from their letters directly in his writing to them, which was not properly reflected in the English translation.

The truth was that Paul was rebuking them. He took their quote in verse 34 and 35 and tore it apart. Reading the verses before and the verses after would give more insight.

The point is Paul never said that, the Corinthians said that, and Paul was responding to that.

Read the post again if you have.....

Stay blessed.
