US, Russia or China? 

1. Google CEO is an Indian 

2. Microsoft CEO is an Indian 

3. Citigroup CEO was an Indian 

4. SoftBank Vision Fund CEO is an Indian

21. Now IBM CEO is also an Indian origin guy 

22. Britain’s Chancellor of the Exchequer is an Indian 

23. Britain’s Home Secretary is an Indian

. Dr Abraham's Comment: 

 *Interesting...to know that they were just as abused as Blacks, yet they have quietly gone on to make an impact in the world!* 

And the CEO of Dangote is Indian! 

There is no alternative to quality education. You are sought after!

 _The price of greatness is responsibility_ . Sir Winston Churchill.

How Nigeria can reap from WTO – Okonjo-Iweala

 

The Director-General of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, on Monday, asked Nigeria to encourage and push for more trade.

Okonjo-Iweala, saying this was the only way the country can benefit from the WTO, also called on Nigeria to add value to its products and exports more that will attract the rest of the world.

‘So, WTO will support Nigeria with capacity building and technical assistance to improve the quality of the products that we export. We will work with entrepreneurs and producers to make that happen so that others can access other markets, particularly since we need to diversify away from oil and process agricultural products and this needs a lot of care. So, we hope to be able to provide that directly,’ she said.

Okonjo-Iweala disclosed that the WTO will partner with other organizations that have access to more finance, particularly the World Bank, the African Development Bank (AfDB), the Asia Investment and Infrastructure Bank (AIIB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to help Nigeria solve some of the deficits as far as infrastructure is concerned.

She also assured that assistance will be rendered to Nigeria in other areas, including the regulatory framework for some of the trade areas in order to strengthen Nigeria for bigger and larger trade, particularly on the African continent.

Okonjo-Iweala further pledged financial assistance to Nigerian and African women under the International Trade Centre which possessed the capacity to train women entrepreneurs and help them access international markets in collaboration with the Nigerian Export Promotion Council.

‘A lot of women already run businesses and they want to access markets. But one of the things they complain about is the quality of their products and access to marketing and how they can sell. So, those two things the WTO actually has the capacity to be able to assist them. And we have already done something. We started with women and men who produce share butter and worked with a cooperative and we have been able to assist them to increase their production and meet their quality requirements to use share butter for cosmetics for 200 metric tons and others for 500 metric tons. So, that is a specific example of what we can do working with women entrepreneurs,’ Okonjo-Iweala also said.

Foreign Affairs Minister Onyeama, meanwhile, hailed Okonjo-Iweala as the first woman and first African to clinch the coveted position of the Director-General of the WTO.

Onyeama added that Okonjo-Iweala made the country proud by attaining the position with hard work, diligence and competence.

Facebook announces new tools to help users get vaccinated

 Facebook said this week that it's releasing tools designed to help its social network's users find authoritative information about COVID-19 vaccines.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a post on the company's Newsroom blog that the tech firm will release utilities in Facebook-owned apps — including Messenger, WhatsApp, and Instagram — that connect people with information about how and when to schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment. The tools are intended to help users find nearby vaccination locations and will have information such as vaccination-site contact details, links to how to make an appointment, and, if available, hours of operation.

Data for the new utilities is provided by VaccineFinder, a site developed by Boston's Children's Hospital, and available on Facebook's Coronavirus Information Center site. The company will also make the information center available on Facebook-owned Instagram. Facebook says the site will soon be available in 71 different languages.

The tech firm is also providing localized information about COVID-19 cases and vaccination deployment in over 200 countries and territories via a COVID-19 map and dashboard. Data is "nearly real time" and supplied by Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Maryland and is intended to help public officials and policymakers better understand concerns and trends about the vaccine throughout the world.

Facebook says they are attempting to combat COVID-19 disinformation and misinformation by amplifying "credible health information" from international health organizations including the World Health Organization, NGOs such as the International Medical Corps, and global governing bodies including the European Union and the African Union. The social network is also adding informational labels to posts that could increase vaccine hesitancy.

Facebook's new vaccine information tools will help users find location vaccination spots.FACEBOOK

Facebook's data tools will help medical professionals refer patients to a valuable source of credible information about the vaccine, said Dr. Hala Sabry, a physician and founder of the Physician Mother Group, who has helped mothers and families struggling with COVID-19.

"I think that the scale of misinformation and disinformation over the last year has been more than any time in my career," said Dr. Sabry. Facebook's new tools can prevent harm by helping the average Facebook user "know the difference between a good resource and a false resource, or [a resource] that's not pro-science." 

Facebook's announcements come as the tech giant faces mounting criticism over their sluggish response to COVID-19 disinformation. In December, Facebook banned misleading  information about COVID-19, and in February of this year the company expanded its restrictions to include misleading ads. The company also removed over a million posts related to false cures treatments because they could lead to "imminent harm."

In an interview with CBS News, Facebook's Chief Product Officer Chris Cox acknowledged that disinformation remains a challenge for the social network, but said that the new tools will help curb the spread of harmful content.

Removing misinformation

"[Misinformation] is certainly something we're taking very seriously," said Cox. "There's a lot of information out there about COVID, and there's a lot of questions about COVID. We took the step, as you know, of taking a stand that for anything that was a viral piece of misinformation or a hoax spreading misinformation about COVID, we were going to work with fact-checkers to identify those and that we were going to take it down to remove it from our platforms."

The social network has been a target for disinformation throughout the pandemic. Last spring the company yanked a misleading video called "Plandemic" after the clip accumulated millions of views and interactions. The conspiracy group QAnon pushed the hashtag "scamdemic" across private Facebook groups and pages. Several of these pages are still active. A recent report by the Washington Post found that even small groups of coordinated users, including QAnon and other conspiracy groups, can fuel the spread of disinformation that leads to vaccine hesitancy.

Cox is optimistic about Facebook's battle with COVID-19 disinformation. 

"The thing we're paying attention to and what we've learned from all of our research here and from public health experts is the most important thing you can do is find as many of those posts as possible," Cox said. "Let's forget about what some would call misinformation and some would call a debate, and just being there with authoritative information in every instance. And that's what we're talking about today is having authoritative, informational labels that help people get access to good information."

2021 GRAMMY AWARD WINNERS AND NOMINEES

2021 GRAMMY AWARDS were held Sunday night on CBS. Trevor Noah hosted the ceremony from the Los Angeles Convention Center, just across the street from the award show's usual home at the Staples Center. As with other award shows held during the pandemic, there was no live audience for the Grammys this year, save for a limited number of performers and nominees.

Performers at the event included Bad Bunny, Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion. Beyoncé led the field with nine nominations and, after picking up the 28th Grammy win of her career, she broke the record for the most Grammy wins ever by a female artist and most Grammy wins ever by a singer. Dua Lipa, Roddy Ricch and Swift each scored six nominations themselves, and Swift took home her third Album of the Year award.
