Pastor Adeboye's Mathematical Equations For A Successful Marital Life

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has drawn a link between mathematics and marriage. He recently revealed this link at the 1st annual lecture of the Pastor E.A. Adeboye Professorial Chair for Mathematics, held on Thursday evening at the Main Auditorium of the University of Lagos, the pastor who has been married for 47-years, told the audience about 4 simultaneous linear equations for a successful marital life.

According to the man of God, his understanding of the mathematics of marriage is what has kept his marriage strong. “I told my children that why I have remained married for 47 years is because I understand the mathematics of marriage. Mathematics is a science of living,” he said.

Equation 1: This states that love is blind. It was supported with a biblical passage from Proverbs 10:12, which states that love covers a multitude of sins.

Equation 2: This states that “marriage is a miracle worker with special anointing for curing blindness.” This can be found in Genesis 29:16-25 which gives the account of how Jacob was so in love that he did not know it was Leah that was given to him in marriage, rather than Rachel, until the next day.When simultaneously calculated, he said the result shows that during courtship, love does not make shortcomings obvious until after marriage, when all doubts about character are cleared.

The Entrepreneur Promoting A Walking Culture With His Business Start-Up

Meet Matt Tomasulo, the entrepreneur behind ' Walk [Your City]', a business that is promoting a walking culture and healthier lifestyle for citizens, business owners and visitors. Walk [Your City], as the name suggests, wants people to showcase just how walkable their city is. 

Tomasulo who is an urban designer and activist says, "A big obstacle to walking is this perceived barrier of a destination being 'too far,' when in fact it is a walkable distance." After a successful Kickstarter campaign, he launched his business in November 2013 and sells customizable signs that say things like, "It's a 12-minute walk to downtown" or, "It's a 5-minute walk to the library." 

Anyone can order the signs online; Walk [Your City] makes and ships them for $20 to $60, depending on the material. Over 5,000 signs have been made and installed in cities like Santa Fe, N.M., Grand Rapids, Mich., and Atlantic Beach, N.C. He hopes his efforts will promote a walking culture and "amp up interest from cities to invest in infrastructure that supports a healthier lifestyle."

Kenyan Female Entrepreneur Who Set Up Her Own School After Being Denied A US Visa

Meet 21 year old Martha Chumo from Kenya, a self taught computer programmer who intends to break the myth that programming is too difficult for young people to develop skills in. She is the founder of The Nairobi Dev School, a school that equips youth in East Africa with computer programming skills and helps them build technology-based solutions to everyday challenges. The Nairobi Dev School has since conducted skills development training in Kenya, South Sudan and Somalia.

Chumo decided to toe the path of entrepreneurship after being denied a US Visa. Her school was established in 2012 and she hopes to teach children in rural Kenya how to write code, and break the myth of technology being too difficult for young people to develop skills in. Read excerpts of her interview with How we made it in Africa below:

Give us your elevator pitch.
Our goal is to equip young people with software development skills they can use to solve challenges around them. We talk about technology a lot in Kenya, but what does it really mean for education, healthcare and farming? We want to make technology relevant to us. We teach beginners as well as experienced people such as fresh graduates.

I have found when someone is learning something to get a job, they are motivated to do the minimum required because their aim is a job, not to transform the world. But I like the energy and naivety of young people. At age 14 they have nothing to lose, their parents are giving them pocket money and they have time. They can throw in as much creativity and take risks.

Her inspiring story was recently aired on CNN's African Voices.  She says: "I am a role model for a lot of children with disabilities and it's very important for me to showcase to the world that... Yes ... You can have a disabled child and it's not the end of the world. There is so much that that child can end up doing given the right resources."

These institutions administer loans to their customers by sending a code to their mobile phones via SMS. That code can be exchanged for money at any branch, making small loans available immediately.

Bedwei and her family resided in Dominica, Grenada and the United Kingdom before finally settling in Ghana when she was 9 years old. She gives a lot of credit to her mother who home schooled her till the age of 12. Her family also noticed her passion for computers at an early age and enrolled her for a 1-year computer course at the age of 15, she was one of the youngest in the class. In her words:
"I'm sure most of my classmates were wondering what I was doing with them. But that it how I started my career as a software engineer because through that course I realized what aspect of IT I was going to specialize in. I loved the idea of solving problems and creating things," she says.
