Brain Development and Due Process
Africans, especially Nigerians are stereotyped on the internet and offline in foreign countries as corrupt, cheats and thieves.
Whenever I have to introduce myself to foreign contacts, whether online or offline, I must make visible effort to prove my contact wrong, because he or she instantly sees me as a scammer-419, another Nigerian cheat or thief.
This situation must be very disheartening to innocent Nigerians, who must be wondering why government seems unable to correct the awful situation. But should the question; why is our nation bedeviled with the scam scourge and corruption that rubbish us in the eyes of the international community not be asked?
The answer is: Our society is carbohydrate dependent and so poor brained, and government officials are products of this same carb-society. Just as over consumption of carbohydrate predisposes the awful degenerative disease known as diabetes, our country and continent progressively degenerate into poverty, corruption and scam scourge of international dimension.
Yes, that's true!
The genesis of corruption is poverty. Both Continental and national poverty stem from lack of balanced diets that result stunted brain development.
Nigerian and indeed African diets are 90% carbohydrate and 10% of overcooked soups, with very little or no nutrients required by human brain to develop fully in order to be able to handle due process.
Because of this situation, cheating which begins right from school coupled with lopsided curricular taught by teachers, tutors and lecturers who are ill-equipped both intellectually and materially produce graduates whose main goal in life is consumption by all means, in a comatose economy of abject lack of honest means of livelihood.
The brain is the intelligent part of the body. It controls the rest of the body through the interpretation of sensory impulses that triggers the different functions of life. A brain that is carbohydrate dependent is incapable of due process, both within and without.
The highest function of life is thinking which takes place in the brain by the constant transfer of chemical signals between brain cells, up to one thousand limes a second.
To be able to do its work of coordination and control of life's functions, the brain's nutritional needs must be met for it to manufacture correct and adequate quantity of chemicals that it requires, diet must delivered correct and adequate quantity of nutrients into the blood stream and across the blood-brain barrier to provide constant nourishment, replenishment and both hormonal and chemical balances that will support brain's mental ability for due process.
Just like other cells and organs of the body, the brain's requirement and availability or non-availability of nutrients forestalls or predisposes stress, impairment or lack of vigour. Which leads to the brain devising shortcuts such as cheating and corruption instead of due process?
This is a heavy price for depending on diets that are devoid of both major and trace minerals, vitamins and protein.
Most Nigerian and indeed black African diets are 90% carbohydrate and 10% of useless overcooked vegetable soups. Fruits are eaten inconsistently, even though both vegetable and fruit's nutrient contents are almost totally diluted by poor soil, hazardous agricultural practices and food processing methods that leave little or no nutrients for the brain to develop fully and be able to handle due process.
Nigeria, therefore, suffers from poverty occasioned by poverty of the mind due to poor nutrition, which results chronic corruption.
Dont Hate Them Because Theyre Beautiful
Tonight I'm going out with two extremely impressive ladies who I am introducing to one another. They are both GORGEOUS, in their mid 20s and both incredibly intelligent. One is divorced with kids and is probably one of the most flawless and incredibly beautiful women I've ever met, the other is single and possibly one of the most fashionable and forward thinking women I've ever met.
How To Build A Business Ethics Program
Recent corporate financial scandals have highlighted the importance of business ethics and legal compliance. Yet a recent National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) survey of 280 corporate CEOs and directors found that "only one of three directors felt that they were highly effective in ensuring legal compliance".
The Only Thing You Get for Free in Life is Hungry!
My grandfather was a very wise man. Simple but wise. He once told me "The only thing you get in life for free is hungry." There is a lot of truth in that. I see it all the time online and offline that people are looking for the perverbial "free ride."
Conflict: Not Necessarily a Bad Thing
I got yelled at tonight. Not the type of yelling that someone does when you've done something to tick someone off, but the kind of yelling that was a swift kick in the pants about something that I'm NOT doing.

Enron?s Ultimate Victim: Ethics
FROM the 'MORAL HIGH GROUND', where we imagine ourselves, the Enron fiasco should have come as no surprise. Enron is simply a quintessential example of the degradation of principles such as trust, loyalty and ethical standards.
Work Ethics ? A Paradigm Shift
Work ethics is a hot topic in today's business and educational worlds. Yet, how do we define this hybrid phrase with the word work meaning more than a specific outcome and the word ethics being more than the values that enhance that outcome?
The Need to Survive; A Death Knell For Organizations
Changing the driving force upon which business decisions are based is crucial in order to not only restore ethics in business but to truly improve the lives of those whom they were meant to benefit: executives, employees and consumers. After all, weren't business activities meant to improve the state of existence of human beings on this planet?

Ethics? How To Take the Measure Business
When asked to write a small piece pertaining to ethics and integrity in the business world, my first inclination was to draw on personal experience.
The Three Schools of Business Ethics
G. Richard Shell, author of Bargaining for Advantage: Negotiation Strategies for Reasonable People, identifies three primary schools of ethics in negotiation. To me, they are equally valuable in examining ethics in the context of business in general.
Do Organizations Serve Us Or Do We Serve Organizations
We have seen an erosion in the confidence that society has in organizational leadership and its integrity recently with the numerous accounting scandals that have become public.Clearly this has led to the demise of several large organizations. In performance terms it is obvious that erosion of leadership integrity is not good for business.
Business Ethics: The Law of Corporate Karma
According to the shamanic traditions, the great mystery of being is that all things are alive and have a level of intelligence. This is because all things are a part of the Great Spirit. However, all things also function individually, in thought and action. It is in these individual actions that karma is born. Karmic laws also state that all karma, both good and bad, must also return home...return to sender!
Vice of Buggery at FTC
At the Federal Trade Commission we have seen attorneys who suffer from the vice of buggery get promoted to higher and more important international divisions. Now then, are these attorneys who have personal sexual problems and are breaking the laws of sodomy not wanted in the main group of Federal Trade Commission Employees? Is the FTC worried about sexual harassment laws? Are they worried about on-the-clock Men's Restroom "Quickies" and the possibility of the need for an unflattering in-house employee investigation becoming public? Is the Federal Trade Commission afraid to fire these buggerists, for some employee unlawful termination suit? Is buggery so pervasive that the FTC has to invent new titles for these guys so they can be moved up in rank to other divisions? If so why doesn't the FTC adopt a "Don't Ask, Don't Tell Policy" to prevent special treatment of those who suffer from buggery? Can't the FTC get psychological help for these men who thrust their penis up another man's rectum? Obviously these human organs were not set up to do that. We know that the FTC continually screw with the natural order of competition and evolutionary progress of efficient competition and survival of the fittest businesses. But why are they now trying to modify humankind's evolution?
Better Business Boundaries
To get a new client, we might be inclined to make concessions no matter what the cost: offer a second or extra long sample session; reduce fees; set session times we don't want to work. We might leap at any opportunity before looking at the possible return on investment of time. These situations end up being lessons learned, sometimes painful ones.

Business Ethics: An Oxymoron?
Why do I believe good PR and business ethics are inextricably linked? It comes down to definitions. Ethics is learning what is right and what is wrong and then doing the "right thing." PR involves providing counsel on the "right thing" to do and then helping the organization get credit for it.

Is Your Management Style Lead By Intimidation?
So many women make the mistake of thinking that they have to be these big mean diva bosses, to get respect and cooperation from their staff and colleagues. They walk around the office huffing and puffing, never showing satisfaction at the work their staff does. They rarely praise their subordinates or colleagues work and they try to make them work all hours of the night. These women mottos are "If I can stay here all night, so can you!" One boss I had in particular, her motto was "I don't get high-blood pressure, I give it.! She was proud of this and she caused some of her staff to be stressed out with high-blood pressure. She was later fired!
