TECHNOLOGY SLAVES vs TECHNOLOGY MASTERS

Source:
Mavor,

I hope your day has started in an exciting way? I wish to get educated daily and I chose to add more words from the heterogeneous lexicon of Nigeria, I asked, “how are you?” in Urhobo language of Delta State, Nigeria. I pray that you will end the day beautifully.

I remembered that in the early 2000s, radical technological changes happened. We were all amazed at the new order most especially in Africa. 15 years after, we have become inseparable from this new order. Every product is now a product of technology; man lives on technology and feeds on technology. Some weeks ago, I was a part of a workshop where I heard the definition of the users of technology and I believe you will also like to learn. Let’s think together, technology slaves versus technology masters.

Technology slaves are those who are addicted to working with technology; they are those who work so long. In order words, they have been sold out to technology. They crave for every new gadget; they want to be technologically sophisticated; they have sleepless nights because they were not online in a day. They want to be response real time, however, life itself, does not offer every solution real time. I looked at the words, “slaves and addiction” but truly, one becomes a slave to whatever one is addicted to. There was a woman whose husband broke the blackberry device, he bought for her because she had abandoned all her responsibility to her children and him; she was always pinging.

Technology masters are those who have the ability to manage their time and increase control of their lives. They are people who use technology when it is available; they are people who can restrain their internet usage. They are people who have the strength to stay sane when they are offline for days. They are people who are not driven by the craze to acquire gadgets.

With these definitions, we know where we fall. In the New Year, there are habits that we need to drop; would you be a slave to technology or be the master of technology. I know that many opportunities abound on the technological space and if it is not seized immediately; it can be gone forever.

Let’s live a modest life and remain masters over all situations.

Have a great week.


Cheers!

INTERMEDIARY vs DIRECT ACCESS

Source:
Omoime,

As a Nigerian who appreciates the heterogeneous nature of the country. I said “My friends” in Ishan language of Edo State. It is a great day to reach out to you with our weekly diet. I wished to have ran away (stopping this series) but I found myself in love with it and am glued to writing it.


Have you ever gone to an office, waiting for the boss but someone will just come in; ask the Personal Assistant (PA) or Secretary if the boss is inside the office, notwithstanding, if there was someone else with him; he would walk in boldly. You have to wait for the authorization of the PA or Secretary to go for your discussion. Let’s discuss intermediary versus Direct Access.

An intermediary is the go-between you and the person that you need something from; the intermediary might be for PA or Secretary, a close pal to the person, a blood relative etc. It is however, saddening, for blood relatives not to have direct access to one another until another relative intervenes. The need for intermediary came as a result of artificial distance created by parents who try to jealously guard and guide their children from relating to others. Also, we thank God for social media that has broken down this barrier a bit.

Direct Access is exactly as written; I have direct access to my parents and other associates. There is no person that needs to authorize a child’s request to the father. There is no limit to discussion with someone that one has direct access to. Direct access is what makes close kin of top executive exchange banters with him either in the office or at home. As customary to political office holders, around here, who go about with security details, those who see them have direct access.

The need for an intermediary or having direct access is dependent on our relationship. I have found out that there is no important person; your level of closeness determines the importance of the person. Develop your relationship so as to gain direct access and not wait for an intermediary. The anticipated intermediary might fail but having direct access is the based on you!

Have a week filled with Direct Access to good things of life!


Cheers!

Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2014 collection was a study in tonality, and so were the wigs, individually dyed to match the pinks, creams, beiges, and brown shades of the clothes.

Wear it dry, and you’ve got your standard dusting of color—classic and predictable (in a good way). But wet! Wearing it wet opens a whole new world of opportunity. “What you’re doing is bringing out the pigmented nature of the shadow,” makeup artist Vincent Oquendo says. “Whenever I wet an eye shadow, it’s when I really want it to pop—but it really has to be a special kind of product to be able to blend after it sets. Because a lot of the times when it sets, you get streaking.” Nobody wants that. In order to avoid any wet shadow mishaps, follow these guidelines:

Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2014 collection was a study in tonality, and so were the wigs.

First, go with the obvious: any eye shadow labeled wet-to-dry. The Nars Dual-Intensity line is the standout—the singles come in 12 different shimmery shades, and there’s a corresponding brush (then there’s the newly released Dual Intensity Blush line, which was all over Fashion Week—but that’s a product for another post). Burberry also makes a few very versatile shades specifically for this in their Wet & Dry Silk Shadows. And the technique-specific eye shadow category isn’t just a ploy to get you to buy more product. “You can’t just use any eye shadow for this,” Vincent says. “Certain ones will harden up on top and become unusable because they’re not made for this.”

Baked shadows are also fair game—we’re fans of Laura Mercier’s Baked Eye Colour Wet/Dry and Lorac’s Starry-Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Trio in particular.

For more advanced players, Vincent suggests moving on to straight pigment (MAC or even OCC’s Pure Cosmetic Pigments). With the added moisture, they’ll become easier to layer with other products. For a look with more depth, try using a cream shadow as a based before swiping with a wet powder shadow. “It’s like insurance,” Vincent says. “You’re doubling your wearability.

Brush
This all depends on exactly what you want to do. “Mind the resistance,” Vincent says, particularly if you’re looking for uniform color across the lid. “I tend to recommend a blender brush, which is the brush that looks like a feather duster. If you do it with a stiff brush, you’re defeating yourself before you even start. The joy of a wet-to-dry is you have to get it right amount of product loaded up, and then it blends itself. If the brush is too stiff, it will leave the shadow streaky and then much harder to control.”

However, if tightlining or waterlining is in the cards, a much thinner brush is required accordingly.

Liquid
Do not, repeat, do not put eye drops, water, or any other sort of liquid directly on your eye shadow. This’ll screw up your product for later use. “Lately, I’ve been wetting the brush with the Glossier Soothing Face Mist, but Evian Mineral Water Spray is good for sensitive eyes,” Vincent says. If the top of your powder does get a little hardened by wet application, there’s a trick to remove it: Get a clean mascara spoolie and “exfoliate” your compact, Vincent recommends. This won’t crack the compact and will make it ready to go once more.
