Things You Should Know About Ultimate Cycler

"Ultimate Cycler is among the hottest online networking business in Nigeria today just like MMM, Crowdrising, iCharity etc. In Ultimate Cycler, Members Donate Money to Members meaning you are not paying money into the site system. Its a mutual community where Members help members.
When you register, you will need to donate the sum of N12,500 to a fellow member you registered under his link, and he will then confirm your donation.
Your registration will be complete when you have sent N12,500 ($25) to the person you are matched with.
After that, login to your ultimate Cycler account, click on “My Profile”, when your profile loads up, scroll down to the part that says “Payment Instructions.” Delete the default text you don’t need there and enter your bank account details there.
Note: You will get paid to the bank account details you entered in the “Payment Instructions” section. So, make sure it is correct.
Whenever you receive payment go to your Ultimate Cycler account to confirm that the person has paid you. This is also important.

Death be not proud; for the arrow of God will strike you like an African Thunderstorm and I will pronounce your name carelessly, like the way the Kenyan women ruthlessly protested their husbands' impotence in public.

Although I'm still trying to believe the news of your sudden demise, I can't underestimate the 'stealing power' of death whose source of joy is the tragedy of all and sundry. 

Mr death will only be displaying his heightened form of ignorance if he feels he has succeeded in putting a stop to your literary prowess. as far as I'm concerned, it lives on because one of the beneficiaries  of your beautifying wisdom and knowledge still lives.  The invaluable knowledge you inculcated in me has no doubt made all nooks and crannies of my life invaluable.

It is so saddening and heartbreaking but my solace is the so many lives you have enriched with your great wisdom who will in turn affect more lives positively. 

I am very proud to be a branch of your rare wisdom. Until we stop having British fiction, I will never forget you!

5 Different Ways To Say "I Understand" In English.

I don't see any reason you should stick to the old way of doing a particular thing while there are varieties of ways through which you can do that thing. If you are really tired of the old fashioned pattern, this article is for you.

Today, I am going to show you five different ways you can say 'I understand' in English Language.

1. I get you
Although this expression is very common among native English speakers, it has also made its way to non native English speakers who have even made the slang, 'I gat you' from it. It is another way of saying 'I understand' and its usage is acceptable in an informal setting as it is mostly used among friends but not suitable in formal atmosphere/environment. It has 'I got you' as its past form.

For example:
Hello Jeff, I'm sorry I can't make it to the rehearsal scheduled for today.

Why? Your presence is really needed.

I have a professional exam tomorrow so I need extra time to prepare for it.

Oh, I get you. Success in advance.

2. I hear you.
You know people always want to be heard and feel that someone understands them, especially during a conversation, so telling them 'I hear you' simply means you are fully engaged in the convversation and paying attention. Invariably, you are telling them you understand what they are saying.

For Example:
I am so angry with myself.


I can't believe I failed a simple test.

I hear you. Maybe you didn't prepare well. You should try harder next time.

Okay, I will. Thanks!

3. I know what you mean.
Using this expression to show understanding simply means you have had an experience of what the person you are chatting or discussing with(i.e. the interlocutor) is talking about.

For Example:
I am so weak and tired.

I was awake throughout the night because of my professional exam.

Oh, I know what you mean. I actually felt the same way when I was preparing for my JAMB examination. You will be fine.

4. Of course.
We say this most times not knowing that it is another way of saying 'I understand'. When someone is explaining something to you and you understand or are in agreement with the person, it is very common to say 'of course' in order to reaffirm that agreement. Non native speakers have even added 'yes' to it by saying 'yes of course' or 'of course yes'.

For Example:
Teaching as a job can be very tiring. Only teachers understand what I'm taliking about. I really need a holiday to ease the stress.
Of course. A holiday would be good to ease the stress.

5. I see where you are coming from.
This is just like 'I know what you mean'. Therefore, using it as a way of saying 'I understand', puts you in the shoes of the person you are interacting with, hence your easy comprehension of the person's opinion and the reason behind it.

For Example:

Mr John, your attitude at work these days is very appalling. You hardly meet the deadline for the submission of lesson notes.
I am really sorry about that; I have some family problems and it has been very difficult for me, especially at work.

I see where you are coming from, but you must try to be hardworking while here. Why don't you take a day off to spend with the family? I am cocksure it will help.

Thanks! I will consider that.

In sum, English as a language is very rich in synonyms, so using a particular word, phrase or clause often, only shows your lagging relationship with the language. Always visit this blog for more.

How To Write A Good Summary.

How To Write A Good Summary.

Summary writing has posed a lot of challenges among native speakers and learners of English, especially those sitting for their Senior School Certificate Examinations (SSCE), probably because they don't have the patience to read the text over and over again in order to get the intention or purpose of the writer. Many have even resorted to 'mindless lifting'. Mindless lifting is when you copy a writer 'word for word' while summarizing his/her text.

Summary writing has rules and, at all times, these rules need to be strictly adhered to. Flouting any of these rules simply means you are not writing a summary.

Today, I'm going to take you on a ride to show you all the nooks and crannies of summary writing.

What Is A Summary?
A summary is a precise rephrasal of the substance of a text. It is a brief and clear statement of the main points of a given text in a condensed form with minimal elaboration or explanation. A summary must contain only the essential idea(s) or main points. It must be accurate and brief; precise and clear.

Guidelines/Rules for Writing a Summary
  • Read the text more than once and try to find out the intention or purpose of the writer.
  • Pay close attention to the topic sentence which is found in each of the paragraphs. A topic sentence is a sentence which contains the main point in a paragraph. Every other sentence in a paragraph explains the topic sentence.
  • Distinguish between the relevant and irrelevant information and make use of only the relevant information. 
  • Omit examples, illustrations and details from your summary.
  • In writing down your answers, make sure you use your own words and do not distort facts. In other words, you should try not to lift words from the passage. Hope you remember what I said about 'mindless lifting' in the introductory paragraph of this essay?
  • Use words economically, and be brief.
How To Select The Main Ideas In A Summary Passage.
  • Understand the text, and this is done by reading the text more than once.
  • Study the topic sentence carefully because that is where the main point is found.
  • Give a suitable title to the passage if none is provided in order not to shift from the writer's intention.
Qualities Of A Good Summary/ How The Main Points of A Summary Can Be Stated.

  • Clarity: This means that you have to state your points clearly when summarizing a text.
  • Brevity: This means that, in stating the points, you have to be brief, forgetting about examples and illustrations.
  • Correctness: This means you have to keep the original line of thought while stating your points.
Importance of Summary Writing.
  1. Summary writing helps us to eliminate what is not relevant from a text.
  2. It encourages thinking in us since we are to restate only the main points clearly.
  3. It helps us to state the basic knowledge we get from various sources and to communicate effectively with it.
  4. Summary notes are very important to students at later dates.
  5. It is a time-saving device as it helps us to quickly get only the main facts from a text.
To The SSCE Students:
Students writing WAEC, NECO and NABTEB are always asked to summarize a passage in three, four or five sentences. For example, "In four sentences, one for each, state the effects of noise pollution according to the passage."

What this simply means is that you should state four effects of noise pollution, and each of the stated effects should explain a single idea. Therefore, you are expected to give your answers in  simple sentences in questions like this because a simple sentence expresses a single idea. Avoid the use of coordinating, subordinating and correlating conjunctions in order not to express two or more ideas in a sentence. Read about conjunctions here.

However, you can use either of the aforementioned types of conjunction if the question is asked like this: "In four sentences, state the effects of noise pollution according to the passage. 

The difference between the first and second questions is the phrase, 'one for each'. Whereas question one has 'one for each,' which introduces the use of a simple sentence, question two does not; thus, giving you the freedom to make use of conjunctions.

A good summary shows how an individual understands the content of a text.

The Correct Version Of The Seeming Piece

The other day,I sent you a piece which seemed very correct but filled with grammatical errors. Remember? Well, if you are unable to recollect, you can read it here:

After discussing the piece with my colleague, Godswill Amadi, who helped in fishing out the grammatical errors I couldn't see(although we had differences in the use of punctuation marks), I decided to come up with this as the correct version of the seeming piece.

Read the correct version:

The first doctor,Mr Akin, did a better prognosis than the second,Mr Obin.However,a piece of medical advice from the Health Organisation(H.O) cancelled further medical session involving the patient; the prognosis notwithstanding.The H.O broke news, a heartwarming news, of a European hospital which had offered to grant the patient free medical treatment.The government, according to reports, had received the offer with great joy and in their generosity, decided to foot the bill of her travel.

You can still make your corrections where necessary.
