There’s a concept in economics that is known as opportunity cost. Wikipedia defines it as “the value of the best alternative forgone where, given limited resources, a choice needs to be made between several mutually exclusive alternatives”. I loved economics in secondary school and I was really good at it, if pharmacy hadn’t worked out, I probably would have put in economics as first choice in JAMB.
Aloe Blacc has a way of making songs that vibrate my soul. He’s a phenomenal musician and his songs have a lyrical depth that is rare today. My current ring tone is a snippet of The Man and because i like that song a lot, I’m sharing its lyrics.

Pastor Adeboye’s comments to his members on marriage and the attributes of a “marriageable” woman has sparked up fierce debate in social media and out of it. I think the emphasis on cooking and laziness and length of prayer time is hilarious, I have seen marriages fail with wives who are excellent cooks, harder workers than the average bee and who can conduct their own vigils by themselves.
