Various cool ways to use the OTG feature

0

I bet most of us have never used half of the features of our smartphones. On that note, i am taking you on a long walk on the uses of On the go (OTG).

You probably are asking what then is OTG? Do not worry. This article is posed to explain to you whatever you do not know about the OTG. Our phones can do much more we can imagine. We just need to know how far they can go, which is to our benefits.

In a layman language, OTG allows a device to read data from a USB connection without the need for a computer.

Android is endowed with a standard micro-USB port. You will need to look for a micro-USB Male to full-size USB Female adapter to activate this. There are also flash drives with micro-USB and USB Ports.

How to check if your android support OTG

Locate the company’s website to check if OTG is among the specifications or check the box it came with.
You can also check if your phone supports OTG by downloading USB OTG CHECKER ,a tool that can quickly check and verify your Android device system USB OTG capabilities.

Various uses of OTG

  1. Connect External drives: How many times have I enjoyed during this more than the usual way. It is so magical. Just plug it and boom, it reads your files to you. External drive with their own powe source works fine but not portable hard drives. Portable hard drives draw power from android when plugged.
  2. Print from the printer: you can print without requiring a wireless connection. Also no need to transfer anything to a PC before printing. You can do that straight away. To print photos and documents, you will switch to photo to photo in your USB Connection. All these at just click! Is it not cool?
  3. Connect with gamepads: For the gamers in the house, you are not left alone. Otg allows you to connect through OTG.
  4. Control Android With Keyboard and mouse:  you probably have not heard that you can use your android most especially a tablet as Android. Get a wireless keyboard yet with a unified reveiver since you only have access to one USB connection.
  5. Charge other devices: This should not be new to you. OTG reverse charging allows you charge other phones through the USB OTG cable. It means you can use your phone as power bank for other phones. Your phone can be a source of energy when you connect it to the other.

What to bring along to NYSC Camp?

0

There must have been a lot of questions on your mind on what are the necessary things to take to the NYSC camp. Of course you have been excited about the prospect of leaving your comfort home to the regimented arena.

It will be all fun and excitement as you come across all different tasks you probably are not used to. Along the way, it will get boring but the fun are much more than the former.

I remember those days i was preparing for camp life. I searched earnestly for answers at wherever i can get it. On getting to the camp, i realise that most of the items i took along were not needed. 

On this note, I will provide you with a comprehensive list of important items you need at the camp. Trust me, you don’t need to spend much before fully prepared for this adventure.

  1. NYSC Green Card and Call-Up Letter(Original & Photocopies): Make atleast 3 copies of the originals. Chances are that you wont even make use of the photocopies.I heard some camps are fully computerized and no manual documentation. To be at safer side, make 3 copies. Photocopies are more costly at the maami market. You can save few changes by doing that before you leave home.
  2. Statement of Result or Certificate (original and photocopies): It is your duty to have made your clearance at your institution which at the end of it will lead to you being awarded your statement of result of certificate.For those in the medical field, registration certificates obtained from legal boards such as the Pharmacist boards, Nigerian Medical Council, or Optometrist Registration council along with evidence of completion of horsemanship are necessary items
  3. School Identity Card (Original and photocopies): You also need to make 3 copies of your ID Card. During registration, you will be asked to provide your ID card for verification purposes. Dont make mistake of leaving home without it. It is as important as your green card and call up letter.
  4. Passport Photographs: You only need not more than 12 copies for on camp and after camp(LG Documentation). The passport photographs must be recent.
  5. Certificate of Fitness (Original and Photocopies): Only certificate of fitness from Military Hospital or General Hospital will be accepted. Come along with atleast 3 copies.
  6. Bank Verification Number (BVN): Make sure your BVN is in order before leaving for camp. Contact your bank and ask them for your status.

    Ask them if the name you are using tally with the one in their database. Any slight error may affect your being paid your allawee.What to take along to camp

Below are the essential things you need to make camp life easy

  1. File Jacket: This is needed to house your important documents. You do not want to misplace any of your documents especially the originals.
  2. Stationery: I remember when I was going to the camp, i was told i will need to buy stapler, correction tipex and glue. All these are never used when i was at the camp. All you need is just your pen and permanent marker. The permanent marker is needed to secure your the identity of your belongings.
  3. Round Neck White T-Shirt, underwears white socks and white shorts: Go with atleast 2 each but if you are one who never have time for washing, you might as well go with more. Reason i said you should go with two is that is among what NYSC will give you at the camp. You will be provided with 2 each.
  4. Plain white tennis shoes (Rubber): Dont make the mistake i made when i was going to the camp. Buy oversize rubber tennis.You are going to be drilled to the extent that you might get a numb toes that is if you go to the camp with your perfect size.
  • Provisions: Although you will be catered for both day and night. You are entitled to 3 square meals. Sometimes, the food are never enough.Other times, you dont feel like taking what is prepared. Buying your provisions before you arrived at the camp will save you cost.
  • Waist pouch: This is very important to house your cash, phones, ATM card, keys and other important stuffs while you go about the business of the day
  • Other things you will need are mosquitoes net, padlock, money, toiletries, bucket, bathroom slippers, two pair of jeans and tops or native ones as you deem fit. A power bank wont be a bad idea as well.

Important things to take to NYSC CampWith the above, you can be rest assured that you are fully set for the camp.

Take note that some items get seized at the gate. You must have made your findings before adding to the list. Seized items will be returned at the end of the orientation.

NIN Registration: How to do pre-enrolment and check status

0

Following the news that The Federal Government of Nigeria is set to approve the mandatory use of the National Identity Number(NIN) starting from January, 2019.

There have been series of questions as how to get registered under the scheme and way to avoid the long queue.

I am sure a lot of people were discouraged to do that hearing that there are still large numbers of people who are yet to get their permanent card.

Nevertheless, the print out that has your unique number is as good as the card as it is now getting the attention it deserves.

Now that I have made my point, it is time I get back to the business of the day and that is how to get registered. Not just registered but without having to queue forever.

How to get registered for NIN number  with no stress

The first thing you should do is do Pre-erolment. Pre-enrolment is you filling some of your information on the NIMC official website.

This is done by accessing the erolment form on the official site. This helps you do things quickly as you can now cut out some times you would have burnt at that NIMC boring office. Pre-enrolment can even be done while sipping your coffee or in your bed. Is that not cool?

How To Be Your Own Boss

0

People are beginning to realize business is the real deal compared to working under someone. To start a business, you will need a lot of information on how to start and ways to go about it.

As we were taught in the four corners of classroom, it always begins with a business idea. I believe that will take a lot of tasks as you will need to be sure if it will pay off at the end of the day.

Some steps to take to become your own boss

1. Build a business plan

Now that you already have a refined idea on the ground. The next step is to make a thorough plan of how you are going to manage your business. Of a truth, it is never easy but this is important for the growth. Ask yourself some certain questions like what is the reason for this business? Who are your targeted audience and the cost? Your end goals at the end? How do you intend to get the finance for it?

A lot of people just embark on business without having a good feasibility study. This is bound to fail except one along the way, do things right. It is always advisable to have a well-written plan so as to forestall any chance of failure.

Conduct a market survey and know your competitors are the right things to do.
A business plan is like a roadmap that helps you outline goals and ways to achieve the goals.

2. Estimate your finance

To start a business, you require more than a great business idea. You will need to determine how you are going to get the needed cash and resources for it. Do you already have the cash in your coffer or you intend to borrow? If you are planning to leave the job which is currently putting food on the table for you, do you have some money aside to support you until you are finally smiling to the cashier?

I am not in support of anyone starting a business on borrowed funds as it has proven over time that these businesses always fail. Obtaining a loan to start an unproven business is a bad idea. Before you say jack, the banks are already on you.

New businesses always fail due to a lack of enough money. Always overestimate the amount you will need as there will be a lot to do when you eventually start.

3. Register your business

Registering your business is so important
If you want to become an officially recognized entity. Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) is responsible for that in Nigeria.

The requirements are
1. At least 2 members and not more than 50. Members must be at least 18 years old.
2. Only people of sound mind and not disqualified by CAMA or bankrupt can be registered.
3. minimum share capital has to be at least N10,000.

Aside from those previously listed out, Articles of Association and Memorandum will be required, Notice of registered address of your business, Receipt of payment of stamp duties, and Statement of compliance by a legal practitioner.

4. Tax Registration

Now that you have registered your business, the next step is to get your business registered at the tax office. In Nigeria, it is called Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS). This is the body that will collect tax on value-added, withholding, and company income.

Once you are done, you will be issued Tax Identification Number (TIN)
It is very important to pay taxes regularly as there are penalties for tax defaulters.

5. Get a website

It is important to set aside some cash in order to help you create awareness for your business. To do that, you need a quality website. Having a website makes it easy for your customers and potential customers to connect with you easily. Get a good designer who has had successes in those fields.

Having a responsive website and fully optimized for search engines will make it easy for your customers to always come back. If you really want to enjoy successes, then you need a professional website designer to help you set it.

I know it may come a bit high but kindly pay up as it will help you in the long run. Remember, marketing is the soul of business and a website can provide you with the platform.

6. Assemble your team

You will need a group of professionals to help your business gel. Getting the right people for the business is also as important as others except you will be running it yourself.

Nothing bad in running a business by oneself but having people around you hastens the growth of your business. People around you come up with different approaches to help you settle and also for the long term benefits.

7. Create awareness

You already own a website. That is good for a start. But you are still going to do more. You will need to get your businesses known to those who have no access to the internet. But before you venture deeply, it is important to have your own brand. Design a logo to help people identify your own brand. The logo gives you a unique feeling.

You also make use of social platforms to help create awareness. Make use of third parties such as vendors as they are more closer to the customers than you are. Treating them right could give your business a boost.

Lastly, when you reach a crossroads, ask questions from those who have long been in the field. Seek professional advice. This is important to the growth of your business.
