Stakeholders in environment protection should not be deceived by loud noise made across the country to mark this year’s World Environment Day. As expected, a number of states observed World Environmental Day by staging some talk shows or organizing tree-planting activities. The Acting United States (U.S.) Consul General, Brandon Hudspeth participated in a tree-planting event with students of St. Savior’s School, Ebute Metta, Lagos, along with the General Manager of the Lagos State Environmental Protection Agency (LASEPA). Essentially, World Environment Day is merely used by government officials to deliver beautiful keynote speeches and rehearse the same environmental problems plaguing the country without providing any solution. It is time governments at all levels embark on concrete actions to stem these endemic problems, beyond the fanfare of marking the World Environment Day every year.

Teaching your children how money works is one of the most important life lessons you can give them, it goes beyond the benefits of naira or dollar. Children that learn the art of wealth creation early have been known to be financially responsible, have leadership qualities, are self-disciplined, philanthropic, emphatic towards others, appreciate delayed gratification, and are quick to forgive. Show by example; remember children learn more from watching you. Not the money you gave them, let them pay from the money they saved or the money they were gifted. If you do have money to pay, let them also know how much you had to sacrifice to put the money together.

MMA analyst Michael Bisping believes UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman is near impossible to defeat. On August 20 in Salt Lake City, Leon Edwards will finally get his chance at glory as he prepares to lock horns with Kamaru Usman for the UFC welterweight championship. Michael Bisping, who has been watching Edwards’ development closely believes Usman would be a difficult opponent to beat and Leon would need to be perfect throughout the fight to get a result. Because one thing to be sure, if Kamaru Usman can catch Leon the way that Nate Diaz did, then, of course, he has the power to knock him out. He knocked out Masvidal, and stopped Gilbert Burns, he has such a tremendous amount of power… So, Leon’s going to have to be perfect.”

Kechi Richard Sheidu is a luxury expert and IATA/ASTA member, with over a decade of experience in luxury travel and tourism. But above all these, I have always loved the hospitality business and come from a family that is also into hospitality. I don’t agree with this narrative at all and I didn’t even know people saw the hospitality business as feminine. So, I don’t think this business is feminine; I don’t think it is easier than what I was doing before. You started Kahera Travels at a time when luxury travel wasn’t very popular.

It is common to have your child ask for things he wants and when you cannot provide, it could be a difficult task declining his request. Telling your child that you can’t afford something is not encouraged. It is key to teach your child to look past what your present circumstances are, showing him what he could be and how to get there. While every parent wants the best for his child, including providing and buying expensive gadgets that give desired comfort to the child, when these needs cannot be met, a parent should honestly communicate with his child. Explain your situation, and if you can’t afford something, it’s important not to give in to pester power and risk getting into debt.

Millions of women in the US will lose the legal right to abortion after the Supreme Court overturned a 50-year-old ruling that legalised it nationwide. The court struck down the landmark Roe v Wade decision, weeks after an unprecedented leaked document suggested it favoured doing so. Thirteen have already passed so-called trigger laws that will automatically outlaw abortion following the Supreme Court’s ruling. The Supreme Court had been considering a case, Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization, that challenged Mississippi’s ban on abortion after 15 weeks. The landmark 1973 Roe v Wade case saw the Supreme Court rule by a vote of seven to two that a woman’s right to terminate her pregnancy was protected by the US constitution.

It was observed on Wednesday that transporters charged N400 as against N300 from Iyana-Ipaja to Oshodi, while from Iyana-Ipaja to Ikeja, fares went up to N300 from N200.
