I had anticipated something of the liberty and recklessness epitomized by sixteen-year-olds who drove their own cars (and I was soon to exercise my own liberty by choosing to be an art historian instead of an astronaut). But I was astonished by the Phil Donahue show, by how little sense of shame people seemed to have; and I was more than astonished by the black-white divide.

The journey to Kalamazoo seemed like a journey of return, the opposite of exile. A direct flight from Lagos to JFK, followed by a daylong train journey across the Midwest, had brought me to the town where my parents were married, the town where I was born and baptized.

I had no anxiety about legal documents. Picking up my Social Security card was an afternoon’s errand. I got a job at McDonald’s, and banks gladly loaned me money for college. But, my first evening on campus, as I wandered around in what seemed like intolerable cold, it suddenly struck me that everyone I loved on this earth was almost six thousand miles away.

I was flooded with panic, like a young boy in a helicopter being pulled away from all he’d ever known. Seventeen years of invented memories abandoned me. A sob ascended my spinal cord.

That evening, I began to invent new memories for myself. These new memories were all about the home I had left to come back home: what I had liked about that other life, and what part of it I was happy to be rid off."

Photography critic for New York Times Magazine and a regular contributor to The New Yorker, The New Inquiry, Teju Cole is the author of two books: a novella, Every Day is for the Thief and a novel, Open City.

“Another issue that he raised that I think we should look into is to have a database of such people at our fingertips because they are now coalescing on behalf of Africans such database that can be useful to them at this level and this environment that they too can push.

“And finally, I saw an opportunity which I’ve been looking for them to download all jobs vacancies so that I too can advertise them on FCSC’s website. Those are three things that I’m going back home with.”

Ms. Ayo had, at the meeting with the UN official, lamented over what she termed deficit in Nigeria’s representation at the UN.

7. Always review your notes before starting an assigment.Obviously, before you can review yournotes you must first have notes to review.

Always make sure to take good notes in class. Before you start each study session, and before you start a particular assignment, review your notes thoroughly to make sure you know how to complete the assignment correctly.

Reviewing your notes before each study session will help you remember important subject matter learned during the day, and make sure studying targeted and effective.8. Make sure you're not distracted whiles you're studying.Everyone gets distracted by something.

Maybe it's the TV. Or your family. Or maybe it's too quite. Some people actually study better with a little background noise.

When you're distracted while you're studying you (1) loose your train of thought and (2) you're unable to focus -- both of whichwill lead to very ineffective studying.

Before you start studying find a place where you won't be disturbed or distracted. Some people this is a quite cubical in the recesses of the library.

9. Use study groups effectively.Ever heard the phrase "two heads are better than one"? Well this can be especially true when it comes to studying. Working in groups enables you to (1) get help from others when you're struggling to understand a concept, (2) complete assignments more quickly, and (3) teach others whereby helping both the other students and yourselve to internalize the subject matter.

However, study groups can become very ineffective if they're not structured and if groups members come unprepared. Effectivestudents use study groups effectively.

10. Review your notes, schoolwork and other class materials over the weekend.Successful students review what they've learned during the week over the weekend.

This way they're well prepared to continue learning new concepts that build upon previous coursework and knowledge acquired the previous week.

We're confident that if you'll develop the habits outlined above that you'll see a major improvement in your academic success.

8. Not Hesitating To Ask Questions:Can you imagine what this world would have been if nobody asked questions? Many people are hesitant about asking aquestion, so they will rather let it remainunanswered.

This is where they go wrong. Always remember, there is no one in this world who has the answer to every question. So there is nothing silly in asking a question.

In fact, not asking a question when you want to, is silly.

9. Learning To Stand Up For Yourself:
Often people aren’t able to do this and let others around them treat them like a doormat. If you don’t speak-up for yourself, you will never be able to do anything for yourself.

Others will use you till a point where you allow them to do so. If you are waiting for some princecharming to come and stand-up for you, you need a reality check.

You need to learn to speak-up for yourself and take your stand.

10. Preparing for uncertainty:
Life is never certain. You cannot expect things to go the way you expect them to.

Life will always surprise you. So if you want to be one step ahead and be prepared, always be ready with a plan B for every important decision.

By this youwill never see a day, when you don’t know what to do.We hope by this article, you were able tolearn something that you did not learn inschool. Have a great life.

Tank 4 won't get filled up until tank 3 is full.
The upthrust of the water is upward making it slower for the water to flow.
