Who knows, but you might just get some useful tips on how to meet and know the right one.

API: LET VTPASS.COM SERVE YOU WELL

The first question that will be on your lips is what is an API?

Well, here is a textbook definition:

An API stands for “Application Programming Interface.” An API is a set of commands, function, protocols and objects that programmers can use to create software or interact with an external system. It provides developers with standard commands for performing common operations so they do not have to write the code from scratch.

But not all of us are computer geeks or nerds. Ok, most of us are not. So here are simple, fun ways of understanding what an Application Programming Interface (API)  is:

You buy an extension, which you intend using to charge your phone, laptop and the likes. For the extension to work, you are not going to plug straight to the transformer next to your house, or the wire transmitting electric current to you, right? No, you need an interface. Something that can stand in the gap and collect the energy from the electric current down to you. You need a socket. This socket which is usually connected to a wire on the wall serves as an interface to which you plug your extension. This in response to the interface, enables you to charge your phone and any other thing.

The API is just like that socket, except it is something you can’t see and it has more to do with the internet world.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE

You want to buy rice and chicken from your favourite restaurant. Now, do you just go into the kitchen where it is being cooked or stored? And then demand a plate of rice and chicken? Of course, not, there is an attendant, a waiter. In this case, an interface that delivers your request for a hamburger to the kitchen staff. They in response to your request, hand over the food to the waiter, who will, in turn, place it before you. And then, lunch or dinner is served. Or breakfast, if you are the one that does late meals or does not fancy the routine bread, tea and egg.

The waiter has served as an API, relaying messages for you all in a bid to deliver a service. You must have guessed by now that in the real sense, the person making the request is not a person, but codes. Just like the waiter and kitchen staff responding to the requests are are all codes.

So, simply put, APIS are messengers that take requests from a user end, go to the right quarters to deliver the message.  And then relays back an answer to the user again. In a technical sense, you use an API when you employ the code written by someone else or their database for your own purpose, or to service your own website.

WHY DO I NEED TO KNOW API?

There are a lot of ways knowing how the API works can profit an average online business person. Say, you have a natural hair blog that sometimes needs to display videos. You might not have these videos at all. But by integrating Youtube’s API to your site, these videos can be displayed on your site.

It is through this the API that many videos on YouTube get featured on sites that clearly are not Youtube. Another easy way of using API is having a website where you need people to sign in or login. Because you know Google or Facebook already have the sign in feature which is way professional.  On proper request, you can simply use Google or Facebook’s sign in feature. So that, what you will have on your own website is “sign in with Google or Login with Facebook”. You might be nodding in understanding right now. That’s good, but there is something even better.

Well, this can be easily done through the MTN Share and Sell.

HOW DOES MTN SHARE ‘N’ SELL WORK?

As a first time user of MTN Share ‘N’ Sell, it is advisable to change your pin before any transaction so as to ensure that your phone is not trespassed upon and used to send airtime randomly. Have it in mind, then, that the default pin is 0000.

Changing your MTN share ‘n’ sell pin

To change your pin, you should dial

*600*0000*NEW PIN*NEW PIN#.

What this means is that if you decide your new pin (which must be a four digit number) will be 3421, then you should dial,

*600*0000*3421*3421#.

Another way you can change your pin is by sending a message with the entry 0000 NEW PIN NEW PIN to 777. Again, if your pin were to be 3421, it would be

0000 3421 3421 to 777.

Once a confirmation message is sent to you, you can commence transfers of airtime. Simply dial *600*Recipient’s number*amount*PIN#. Here is an example:

mtn
Code for MTN Share ‘n’ Sell

*600*08009576890*200*3421#

An example: Transfer 08009576890 200 3421 to 777

In another confirmation message that will be sent, enter the word YES and forward it to them. Bear it in mind though that you can only share airtime worth #10,000 every day.

EID-EL-KABIR: TEN FACTS YOU NEED TO KNOW

Though the celebration of Eid-el-Kabir has not started in full measure, it is not too early to say, Happy Eid-el-Kabir to every Muslim faithful. And also to Nigeria in its entirety. Despite the several economic and security factors attempting to deplete this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration, all hands are on deck to make sure the celebration embodies, in all respect, the solemnity of the feast. Here are ten facts you need to take note of as we plunge into this festive period which is to begin on Friday, the 1st of September, all through to Monday, the 4th of September.

  1. THE  MEANING OF EID-EL-KABIR

The name, Eid-el-Kabir, is an Arabic phrase for “Feast of the Sacrifice”. Another way of calling it is Bakr-Eid (Sacrifice Feast). Eid-el-Kabir can also be called Eid-al-Adha.THE ORIGIN

2. THE ORIGIN

According to Islamic sources, Eid-el-Kabir epitomises the willingness and sacrifice exhibited by Ibrahim. Ibrahim who was asked by Allah to sacrifice Ishmael, the promised son, was very complaint even to the point of almost giving up his son. It was the angel Jibril that stopped him in his tracks and told him that due to his submissiveness, his sacrifice had been accepted already. Woven into this was Ibrahim’s journey from Canaan to the rocky plains of Mecca, Saudi Arabia with his Hagar, Adnan, and Ishmael.

On his return to Canaan, he left behind Hagar and Ishmael who ran out of food and water. Due to Allah’ provision, Hagar and her son were able to drink from a spring of water and even got food by selling from the water.

Ishmael became a prophet delivering the message of submission from God to nomads in the desert. This served as a precedent to the present Hajj.

3. SOLEMN PRAYER

eid el kabir
PIC. 9. MUSLIMS PRAYING DURING EID EL-KABIR CELEBRATION AT ISHERI-OSHUN, IJEGUN IN ALIMOSHO LCDA OF LAGOS STATE ON THURSDAY (24/9/15).
6821/24/9/2015/OOA/BJO/NAN

To commence the Eid-El-Kabir, prayers are offered at all the mosques all over the world. This is to seal the solemnity of the feast, as Eid-el-Kabir is considered the holiest of the two Muslim celebrations we have.

4. THE SACRIFICE

EID EL KABIRThis is the highpoint of the Eid-El-Kabir celebration. Even before the appointed time for Eid-El-Kabir, several lorries are seen towing the roads in Nigeria supplying rams and cows to the many markets from where they will be sold out to Muslims. After the prayers at the mosques, these animals are slaughtered in the head to represent Ibrahim’s own willingness to sacrifice his own son.

The representative sacrifice might not necessarily be a cow or ram, it can be a camel or goat, depending on the prevalent culture in a given place. However, the domestic animal used must meet certain requirements to be accepted.

5. COSTUME

eid el kabirFor the slaughtering of the animal, a blue coat clothing must be worn. Also, very festive clothes are worn on the other days. This is the time when the Muslims wear their very best. The women wear new, stylish lace, Ankara and colourful hijabs. Most times, the men are seen putting on guinea or damask clothing, with fanciful caps.

6. SHARING

During the Eid-El-Kabir, a lot of love is spread in style. The animals sacrificed are meant to be divided into three part. One part is for the family who slaughtered it. While the other two are for relatives and friends and the indigent ones respectively. Also, families visit one another and share meals together even after the celebration. Even these meats are taken across borders to be shared with truly indigent people.

7. SECURITY

According to security forces, 33,000 security personnel have been deployed nationwide to ensure peace and security. Also, due to the relative peace that has pervaded the North East in recent times, the former fear that accompanied the region in the past, preventing them from celebrating the Eid-El-Kabir has been somewhat dissipated. Expectedly, those in the North-East anticipate highly this year’s celebration.

8. EID MUBARAK

EID EL KABIRFor the Eid-El-Kabir, Muslims all the world greet themselves in just one way- by saying, Eid Mubarak. This form of greeting is one regulated way of showing the success of the Eid-El-Kabir celebration and shows the happiness of the Muslims in encountering yet another celebration.

9. THE ISLAMIC CALENDAR

It should be noted that the date assigned for the observance of the Eid-El-Kabir differ due to the several calendar dates we have. In the Gregorian Calendar, the celebration starts on the 1st of September which is tomorrow. But for the Islamic Calendar, it happens on the 10th day of the month Dhu al-Hijjah. This is usually eleven days later than the date assigned by the Gregorian calendar.

RELATIONSHIP TIPS: THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE GOING INTO A RELATIONSHIP

If there is one thing we can never take a break from, despite the fast lane on which life tows these days, it is love. Love really does make the world go round. Every day, new relationships sprout up and old ones die. Maybe you suddenly have budded affection for a particular someone and you are thinking of cementing your growing feelings. Yes, going into a relationship with this special person would be the right thing to do. But there are certain factors you need to note before starting out. You wouldn’t want to get heartbroken or find out that you had been on a crumbling galley all along.

1. THE TIME FACTOR

Now it is important you consider if you have the time on your hands to go into a relationship. Are you a thoroughly busy person who barely has time to live for yourself? Then, you should not be thinking of bringing someone into your life. Because in a relationship, you have to be responsible for the other person. There is no way a relationship will work if one of the duos is miserly with time. For love to grow into any height, there is a need for the partners to send a lot of quality time together.

RELATIONSHIP
EVEN IF THERE IS NO TIME, MAKE OUT TIME.

Spending time together does not necessarily have to happen physically all the time. Logging on to www.vtpass.com, for instance, affords you the opportunity of buying phone airtime and data subscription conveniently from anywhere and at any time. So you can call your partner from wherever you are and at any time. You can also have takeout and TV time with your potential other. Just make sure to pay for your electricity bills and tv subscription at your very convenience with www.vtpass.com.

2. CONSENSUS

You should know if your partner equally feels the same way as you feel about them. It would be pointless if you are the only one head over heels, and your partner is not really into you as you are into them. This inevitably turns a relationship into a sour grape. Even before verbally confirming a partner’s feelings for you, there are ways you can find out if your intended lover feels something for you. For one thing, the body language of people; their regular dreamy gaze at you or shying away once you look at them, their endless attempt to mirror your movements, touch you and laugh at your not-so-good jokes can mean they like you.

RELATIONSHIP, CONSENSUS
BE WITH SOMEONE THAT ONLY WANTS TO BE WITH YOU

Also, try asking for help to see if they will hurriedly come to your aid. Notice if there are any subtle compliments coming their way or if their friends are all cosy around you once you show up. These are signs that can indicate if the feeling is mutual. And once you find out, don’t hang around too long, feeling too special. Make sure you immediately reach out by calling straight up or striking a friendly conversation on social media apps. Vtpass.com comes in handy here. Having double thoughts about reaching out to a sweetheart? At www.vtpass.com, we don’t give a chance for second thoughts. The faster your fingers are in logging on to www.vtpass.com to get your phone airtime or data subscription, that’s just how nearer you are to hooking up with your potential other.

3. EXPECTATIONS

RELATIONSHIP, TIRED
DEFINE YOUR EXPECTATIONS BEFORE GOING INTO A RELATIONSHIP SO YOU DON’T END UP WITH A MIGRAINE

Before going into a relationship, you must consider the things you expect from your proposed partner. Not just that, discuss these expectations with them. Do you expect to see your partner every day in a week or do you expect your guy to always take you on romantic night-outs and call you at night before you go to bed? Then you would want your partner to know. Don’t expect them to know because we are all humans. Know what you want and then ask for it. Ther is no way you can have a go at great night-outs or late night conversations without buying airtime or data subscription or making sure the electricity bill is settled. You can conveniently do this in record time by logging on to www.,vtpass.com

4. PAST RELATIONSHIPS

Still looking back to the bustling romance you had with an ex or that event that happened to you in the past and has affected the way you see things or view people? Then you wouldn’t mind taking a backseat, crossing your legs, folding your arms and sipping some chilled drink with a straw. Long and hard.

RELATIONSHIP
GET RID OF YOUR PAST BEFORE STARTING A NEW RELATIONSHIP

Because no, you are not ready for a relationship. Going into a relationship with some lurking past creeping in is not a good way to groom a relationship. And certainly not the perfect note to start at all. So why not rid yourself of this haunting past, no matter how painful it is. And start afresh. Every day presents us with a new opportunity, a new life.

Please don’t tie yourself to the past that you can’t relive. Talking about sitting back and taking a drink, you would also like to add a couple of refreshing episodic Telemundo soap-opera from the big screen. And definitely, you would need a good running decoder for that. You can renew your DStv, GOtv, Startimes decoder conveniently,  efficiently and comfortably by logging on to www.vtpass.com, clicking on Pay TV subscription, selecting the appropriate options and paying.

5. CHARACTER

Take it or leave it, going into a relationship without considering the character trait of potential significant other is like buying a car without giving thoughts to its engine. And that, you must agree, is the easiest way to landing in a crash. You wouldn’t want to do that so you should want to check out the character of your partner. Is there is any sign of excessive anger, bossiness, rudeness or the personal things you detest in a person? Is your partner a control freak, an attention seeker? Of course, being in love, you would not immediately see this. But still make sure that while you are following your heart, you do not leave your brain behind.

RELATIONSHIP
WATCH OUT FOR NEGATIVE CHARACTERS. IF YOU CAN’T LIVE WITH IT, DON’T BEAR IT

In all these, starting out into a relationship is one great thing that can happen to a person. But starting out right gives a better edge.
