Cardi B & Meek Mill Are Working On A Song Together Amid Nicki Minaj Beef

Cardi & Meek Mill reportedly recorded a song together amid their ongoing beef with Nicki Minaj! Here’s what we know about the rumors!

Both in feuds with Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, and Meek Mill have reportedly joined forces in more ways than one. According to some insider secrets, the two rappers may have collaborated musically together, which would be a huge slap in the face to Nicki. In a tweet by Adamid Nim Grandmaison (AKA Adam22), he seemingly claims that Cardi and Meek “100 percent” have a song together, based on something that he had been told by a reliable source. We’ve reached out to a rep for Cardi and Meek for comment.

We reported earlier how Meek has felt badly over his past feud with Nicki. “Meek feels horrible about the fight between Nicki and Cardi,” a source close to Meek EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife. “He has a lot of love and respect for both Nicki and Cardi and he would like to do whatever he can to help squash the feud. Meek was inspired by working on things with Drake and he feels like if he and Drake can set aside their differences and work together, then maybe he can help Cardi and Nicki do the same. Meek wants to play peacemaker in this hip-hop war because, since his time in jail, his perspective on everything has changed, he wants to help now.”

However, we’re not sure if Nicki’s beef with Meek will be over any time soon. In fact, before this latest development, Meek was recently spotted hanging out with none other than Cardi. Apparently, Meek and Cardi kicked it at the Billboard Hip-Hop Power Players event on Sept. 28, and cozied up for the cameras!

Labour Adamant, Begins Nationwide Strike Today (Minimum Wage)

Despite pressure from the federal government, the organised labour, comprising the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC) and United Labour Congress (ULC), yesterday insisted on commencing a nationwide strike to demand a quick implementation of a new minimum wage for workers in the country. There is palpable fear in the land that barring any last minute change of plan, the industrial action may ground government and other business activities across the country. As at last night, motorists and other consumers of petroleum products across the country involved themselves in panic buying of the products for fear of the strike action by organised labour. Fueling the apprehension, President of Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wabba, told journalists at a press briefing yesterday that public offices, schools, banks and other places of work are expected to comply with the strike action, which is bound to shut down the economy. According to Wabba, it became obvious that the government did not intend to keep its promise of implementing a new minimum wage for workers.
He pointed out that the industrial action became the last resort following the federal government’s refusal to reconvene the meeting of the tripartite national minimum wage committee to enable it to conclude its work.

He said, ” The action is in compliance with the decision of the various organs of the organised labour which endorsed the 14-day ultimatum served on the federal government by members of the Organised Labour who are members of the Tripartite Committee on the new National Minimum Wage. “The Labour organs further mandated their leadership to take all necessary steps, including a warning strike in the first instance to compel the government to reconvene the meeting of the Committee in order to bring it to a logical conclusion. In compliance with this mandate, all workers in the public and private sectors at all levels across the country have been directed to comply”. Noting that economic activities, both in the private and public sectors, will be grounded today, Wabba said, “Industrial unions, state councils, all worker organisations and our civil society allies have been directed to step up mobilization of their members.
“All public and private institutions, offices, banks, schools, public and private business premises including filling stations are to remain shut till further notice.
“All those who mean well for this country are to see to the success of this action. Furthermore, this action is to remain in force until further directives are given”.
LEADERSHIP recalls that the national minimum wage committee, which was inaugurated in November 2017, had commenced work in March 2018 with timelines to deliver on its mandate of arriving at a new national minimum wage between August and September 2018.

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, had in February this year during the 40th-anniversary celebration of the NLC, assured workers that they would have a new minimum wage in September. The NLC president said the claims by state governors that they cannot pay salary is due to high level of corruption, excessive cost of governance, indulgence in obscene lifestyle, white elephant projects and not lack of funds. He said, “Indeed, the government ought to have commended workers and their unions for waiting patiently for two years before commencing negotiations for a new National Minimum Wage. We advise that our disposition should not be taken for granted.
Meanwhile, the federal government yesterday said the tripartite committee on the new national minimum wage will reconvene its meeting on October 4 to conclude its negotiation process.
Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige said this while addressing journalists after a closed meeting with the leadership of organised labour.
The minister earlier met with organised labour leaders who were also part of the Tripartite Committee on the new National Minimum Wage to update them on the government decision.
“One of the ways that we going to show it is by implementing the new national minimum wage and this we need to fix a base for the lowest paid worker in Nigeria. We are resuming next week, precisely on Thursday, October 4, and the meeting may spillover to October 5, as we normally use two days for the meeting. So, we are reconvening the meeting on the October 4, and all the process has been put in place”, he said.

The minister noted that the Labour leaders have been informed about it and are expected to communicate to their members that there is no need to embark on the strike action.
He assured organised labour that before the meeting on the October 4, the necessary demands by organised labour would have being factored in.
The minister said, “Part of our consultation means that the Economic Management Team, which is managing the entire economy of the country, would have something to work on.
“Already, they are working on it together with the National Salaries and Wages Commission and it is expected that before that meeting on October 4, they would have been through with the work. Everything is subject to negotiation. So, on Thursday, October 4, we are going back to the negotiating table”.
Ngige added that the 14-day ultimatum issued the federal government did not get to him otherwise he would have addressed it scientifically the way it should be done.
He also said that federal government was optimistic that the committee would wrap up in October and all other processes pertaining the new national minimum wage for workers in the country.

NNPC Cautions Against Panic Buying Of Fuel
Meanwhile, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) yesterday appealed to motorists and other consumers of petroleum products across the country not to engage in panic buying of the products for fear of the planned industrial action by organised labour.
The group managing director of the Corporation, Dr Maikanti Baru, said the federal government is seriously engaging the NLC and other labour unions on the issues raised.
In a statement he issued in Abuja yesterday, NNPC group general manager, group public affairs division, Ndu Ughamadu, quoted the NNPC GMD as affirming that the nation has 37-day self-sufficiency in petroleum premium motor spirit (PMS), otherwise called petrol.
According to the statement, Baru assured that all the NNPC depots across the country, including the private ones engaged by the corporation on throughput basis, have an abundance of petroleum products to meet the needs of Nigerians.
He said all NNPC depot managers have been instructed to intensify products loading and other activities in their depots to avert any fallout of developments in respect of the NLC’s proposed strike.
Baru explained that the NNPC would continue to meet the products consumption needs of all Nigerians wherever they may be within the shores of the country.

Google Celebrates 20th Birthday Today

Hurray Google is 20 today, the 27th day of September 2018!

According to Alexa, a company that monitors website traffic, Google is the most visited website in the world. This is absolutely true! There is hardly a day that passes that I don’t visit Google. I know this is also the case with many people. We live in a world where there is a huge craving for new information and search engines like Yahoo, AOL, Ask, Bing, Baidu and Google make it even easier to find new information at the comfort of our homes.

According to Forbes, in May 2018, Google has a net worth of $132.1 Billion and it is listed as the world’s second most valuable brand in the world after Apple.
How Google rose from a website formed at the dorm room of two PhD students at Stanford University in 1998 to become one of the world’s most significant companies offering a wide variety of products is simply amazing.

Larry Page and Sergey Brin grew up in families that had a good background in science and technology.
Sergey’s father was a maths lecturer at the University of Maryland and his mother was a scientist at NASA. Larry’s father had a degree in computer science from the University of Michigan while his mother was a database consultant with a master’s degree in computer science.

Therefore, before both of them met, they were already used to computer systems and database management. Previously, search engines ranked results by counting how many times the search terms appeared on the page, however, Larry and Page thought about and then developed a better system that analyzed the relationships among websites which they called Page Rank. Page Rank was a system of determining a website’s relevance by the number of pages, and the importance of those pages that linked back to the original site.


Looking For Funds

Larry Page and Sergey Brin did not actually found Google in order to build a business or a company. Their main drive and inspiration was to build a great PhD thesis. They formed a prototype of their search engine, called Backrub, and later renamed it Google in 1997. The term Google was actually a play on the word googol, a mathematical term for one followed by 100 zeros, which represented the vast amounts of data on the web. While on campus, the founders launched their invention on Stanford University’s intranet. This new search engine soon gained much popularity among the university environment via word-of-mouth recommendations, as users quickly discovered how faster and more relevant its search results were.

The founders attempted to sell this new technology to Yahoo, Excite and Alta Vista which was the most popular search engine as at that time for about $1m. However, each of companies declined the offer. At that time, search for information and Google’s technology to produce search results in split seconds didn’t really present any attractive opportunity to revenue generation to advertisers. But then, the founders were very passionate that they had created a product that people truly needed, they were left with no option but to take the Google to the market themselves.

In August 1998, Larry and Sergey met private investor Andy Bechtolsheim, a co-founder of Sun Microsystems who had earlier sold another business to Cisco for hundreds of millions of dollars. Bechtolsheim was fascinated with this new product that he wrote out a cheque of $100,000 on the spot in favour of Google Inc, compelling Larry and Sergey to incorporate the company. This became the birth of Google.

The Company Today

Today, with more 60,000 employees in 50 different countries, Google makes hundreds of products used by billions of people worldwide which includes: YouTube, Android Operating System, Android phones and tablets, Smartbox, , Google Search, Google Maps, Google Earth, Google Chrome browser, Gmail, Google Analytics, Google Calendar, Google Finance, Googleplex, Google Plus, Google Drive, Google Fibre, Google Play, Google Translate, Google Store, Google Duo, Blogger and many other numerous products.

Most of the things we do on the internet are controlled by Google and recently they started working on a project called the Google Self Driving Cars. In this project, cars will be automatically controlled by a software created by Google.

The company is the world’s second most valuable brand after Apple and has a net worth of $132.1 Billion as at May 2018 and it continues to grow, increase in its innovation and new products and it keeps attracting the best minds in ICT across the world.

Happy birthday once again to Google for impacting the lives of many people around the world.
