  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.
  • Eat lighter and avoid obesity.

BLACK NOVEMBER IS THE NEW BLACK FRIDAY

The end of every month brings with it a new hope for the things that are yet to be. But alongside this new found hope, there are lots of pending bills to pay. It can be frustrating enough trying to balance one’s account at the end of the month. But what is more frustrating is finding a way to settle our bills right on time and with ease. VTpass settles this problem with a reputable technical acumen. By logging on to www.vtpass.com, you get to pay for, not just your accumulated expenses, but your daily services. Through www.vtpass.com, you can pay your electricity bills, cable tv subscriptions, airtime, data and so on. So, November is drawing close to its end and it would be good to examine just the sheer significance of the month. And if there is anyone word to qualify November, it would be black. Black November.

Really, there was quite a lot of Black going on in November, the most notable of which is the Black Friday. But is this the reason for the name Black November? Not quite. We can bank the meaning more on a thrilling Nigerian 2012 action drama film. This film was called Black November and it did a lot to mirror the Niger Delta’s struggle against indiscriminate pollution of their environment.

But more than this, Black November has recently come to mean more than this. It now denotes the exhilarating, cheap offers and sales discount that comes with the month. Right from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday to Black Friday, there are always cheap sales and bonuses going all over. And now, even beyond Black Friday, goods go out at cheaper rates and people buy more in preparation for the incoming days of celebration.

In fact, you would want to know that Black Friday, as a one-day shopping spree is becoming extinct, giving way to the word Black November. “Analysts are proclaiming the death of Black Friday and the rise of Black November.” And although “Black Friday still remains one of the biggest shopping days of the year, but now it shares the spotlight with Thanksgiving, Cyber Monday, and the two weekend days in between. Thanksgiving is now the third-biggest shopping day of the year, behind Black Friday and Cyber Monday”. This was a report by Dennis Green. So, Black Friday is no longer just a day, it is now a whole month. Hence the word Black November.

Even as November fades away, know that you just walked through one of the most exhilarating seasons of the year. But if you did miss some set moments in the month, do not worry. We at VTpass see every month as a celebration and are all out to make you see that too. Do you need to get good services at just the right convenient time? Then, you should partner with us. Through our stable, www.vtpass.com, you can get your daily services like MTN, GLO, 9MOBILE, AIRTEL airtime and data. You can also get your DSTV, GOTV and STARTIMES tv subscriptions and electricity bills. And what’s more, you get your money’s worth. VTpass is a simple and secure way to celebrate every season.

 

A HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM VTPASS

VTpass wishes everyone who is privileged to sit around a table of roasted turkey or other sumptuous meal and say thanks a happy Thanksgiving. There is nothing worth thankful for than being alive and having your family and friends all around you. And what’s a Thanksgiving without sharing? Well, VTpass has made sharing, even more, fun and convenient through the online payment platform, www.vtpass.com. By logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can easily share airtime and data with your friend. You can even afford to pay their electricity bills, cable tv subscriptions and so much more without having to see them at all. Really, this is more than any plastic-wrapped turkey you can afford to give them.

Talking about roasted turkey; this week, Donald Trump performed the obligatory before-thanksgiving ceremony where he got to pardon a lucky turkey and spare him the burden of coming under the knife.

The turkey which weighs about 36 pounds was given official pardon while the rest are left to bend their neck to the Thanksgiving celebration. Honestly, except for the fact that it is practised by one of the world’s powerful nations, this tradition sounds quite bizarre but it has quite a formidable heritage supporting it. Something that truly deserves a telling over and over again.

It all started with Tad, the fine son of our good president, Abraham Lincoln. In 1863, a turkey had been brought to Lincoln’s home for Christmas dinner. But young Tad took a liking for the turkey and pleaded that its life should be spared. Following this, the tradition of keeping a turkey alive has somehow managed to slip into modern civilisation.

But at first, it was not quite a binding rule to spare these turkeys. In fact, dead and roasted turkeys were usually offered as gifts to presidents during the 1870s. A Rhode Island poultry farmer Horace Vose was very accountable in this regard. Called the poultry king, Vose’dead and roasted Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys started with President Ulysses S. Grant and continued till he died in 1913. Even after his death, the “turkey gifts” were established as a customary practice and an emblem of goodness.

It was not until 1947 that the National Turkey Federation and the Poultry and Egg National Board gave live turkeys to the then President Harry Truman. Somehow, President Truman got pretty excited about this and photographed himself with the adorable turkey weighing 42 pounds before slapping it unto his Christmas plate. But already, the iconic image stuck out like a thumb in the minds of many.

President John Kennedy in 1963 took a cue from this and pardoned a turkey given him for a celebration. The president’s choice to offer clemency to the turkey might be slightly influenced by the sign that stuck around the turkey’s head which read, “Good eating, Mr President.” To this, Mr President simply replied, “We’ll just let this one grow.”

After Kennedy, this sparing a turkey’s life, it was pretty much becoming a campaign so that President Richard Nixon went on to send off the birds offered to him as gifts to the local petting zoo. Perhaps he didn’t feel right sending off the birds to a straightforward death in the presidential kitchen. President Ronald Reagan followed this trend, sending off Charlie, his birdie gifts to the Frying Pan petting zoo, but not without mentioning that the turkey had been pardoned.

November 26, 2008
George Bush (C) pardons a turkey named Pumpkin

Well, George H. W. Bush on the 17th day of November 1989 came all out to declare the pardoning of turkeys. He said “let me assure you, and this fine tom turkey…he’s granted a presidential pardon as of right now.”

And true to Bush’s words, several lucky turkeys have received pardon every November at the hands of benevolent American presidents.

Wow, this is quite a story. It tells of the making of history by merely sharing and offering gifts. You too can make a good impression on your folks by sharing so much love with your family. And this you can do with www.vtpass.com. By logging on to www.vtpass.com, you can in three easy steps share airtime and data with anyone.

2018 WORLD CUP: NEWSREEL

Every four years, several national teams unite together on several green fields across the world for one purpose. And that’s to bring home the glory and prize of the FIFA world cup. And every four years, Nigeria has participated in this memorable event. Most times, they have failed to impress a lot of Nigerians with their performance. But it seems the Nigerian football body is going all out this time to propel the Nigerian team into winning. So, you would want to get in tune with the preparations of the Super Eagles for the 2018 world cup. And you can conveniently do this by visiting www.vtpass.com for your data and airtime.

But in the meanwhile, the Nigerian Football Federation is showing quite as much support for the Super Eagles. For one, they intend to pay players and officials the sum of $2.4 million for the World cup in Russia. Not only that, the NFF has also agreed to remit the other benefits and due payments to the game players. So, this action is a retrospective of the 2014 world cup when issues regarding the pay row led to a poor performance on the part of the Nigerian team.

It looks like a lot is going on for the Super Eagles. This is not only in terms of the money doled out to them, but there is quite a lot going on for them on the field. On one hand, the team beat Zambia to qualify for the World cup just as they had a tie with Algeria in a recent friendly. And there is the recent victory against Argentina in an International friendly.

In appraising this match, Orji Kalu, the former governor of Abia State, had this to say:

vtpass,2018 world cup“The well-deserved victory of the Super Eagles against the Argentine team is inspiring and worth celebrating. The Super Eagles’ players have demonstrated uncommon soccer sagacity.”

It is evident that more than all these, a whole lot is going to go down for the Super Eagles as well as other teams in the 2018 world cup. You wouldn’t want to miss any of the action that is bound to unfold. Log on to www.vtpass.com now to make quick and convenient payment for your airtime and data.

GIRL CHILD DAY: A TRIBUTE TO SHE BY VTPASS.COM

She is just a word, but it can do more to embody every woman who has walked the surface of the earth. She- the little girl who learns to accept her role as a homemaker. She- the young teen who must know how to live for other people before thinking of herself. She- the university student that must earn a degree and also earn a proficiency in cooking. She- the married woman who can’t simply seem to keep tabs of the many things she has going for her.

Obviously, a She always has commitments to her family, workplace and the society.

she,girl,vtpassSometimes, in the midst of trying to stay afloat, she loses herself. So that there is usually no time to attend to the several wee but important details that complete us. There is no time to have a fun TV time because the decoder stays inactive most times. Why? Because she just can’t make out time to go pay the bills.

she,girl,vtpassAnd as if that’s not all. Most times, she even forgets the very important things. She needs to make an early call but somehow forgets to recharge your phone.  She needs electricity to work. But the moment she steps into the office is the moment she remembers she has not paid your bill.

she,girl,vtpassWithout a doubt, these things put her off at times and make some days frustrating. But she is human. And humans live to forget just as they forget to live. Well, for this she, there is one simple, secure way to avoid and correct these human tendencies, and that’s through www.vtpass.com.
