Mr. Musk finally seem to accomplish his goal of buying out 100% Twitter ownership.

Twitter, Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by an entity wholly owned by Elon Musk, for $54.20 per share in cash in a transaction valued at approximately $44 billion. Upon completion of the transaction, Twitter will become a privately held company.

Under the terms of the agreement, Twitter stockholders will receive $54.20 in cash for each share of Twitter common stock that they own upon closing of the proposed transaction. The purchase price represents a 38% premium to Twitter’s closing stock price on April 1, 2022, which was the last trading day before Mr. Musk disclosed his approximately 9% stake in Twitter.

Bret Taylor, Twitter’s Independent Board Chair, said, “The Twitter Board conducted a thoughtful and comprehensive process to assess Elon’s proposal with a deliberate focus on value, certainty, and financing. The proposed transaction will deliver a substantial cash premium, and we believe it is the best path forward for Twitter’s stockholders.”

Parag Agrawal, Twitter’s CEO, said, “Twitter has a purpose and relevance that impacts the entire world. Deeply proud of our teams and inspired by the work that has never been more important.”

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” said Mr. Musk.

“I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spambots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential – I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”

Transaction Terms and Financing

The transaction, which has been unanimously approved by the Twitter Board of Directors, is expected to close in 2022, subject to the approval of Twitter stockholders, the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals and the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions.

Mr. Musk has secured $25.5 billion of fully committed debt and margin loan financing and is providing an approximately $21.0 billion equity commitment. There are no financing conditions to the closing of the transaction.

What got our attention was the fact that under the terms of the agreement, Twitter stockholders will receive $54.20 in cash for each share of Twitter common stock that they own upon closing of the proposed transaction.

Imagine owning just 100 shares?

This and many reasons why investing is so important!!!

A group of Doctors and Consultants were standing across a major road and enjoying a cup of tea when they saw a man limping towards them.

One Doctor said he has Left Knee Arthritis.

The second, and a Consultant said he has Plantar Fascitis.

The third said it was just an Ankle Sprain.

The fourth said: see that man cannot lift his knee, he looks like he has a Lower Motor Neuron lesion.

But to me, he seems to have Hemiplegia Scissors Gait, said the fifth.

But before the sixth could proclaim his diagnosis, the man reached the Group and asked: “Please, is there any *Cobbler* nearby who can repair my *Slippers*”?

That is exactly how people express opinions on your issue. So, don’t bother about their opinions. In whatever you’re doing, Standalone, be straightforward, don’t compromise, believe in yourself, with time others too will believe you. Face your Creator. Be focused and fervent in your prayers and He will answer you soon.

Learning is a continuous process

To calculate the total number of cement the bag needed for your building project, we need to, first of all, calculate the number of blocks required by reading my previous post published a few days ago on calculating the number of blocks.

ZZZ

For example, if you are the person moulding your own blocks
on the building
the site, a bag of cement
will give you about 35 – 40 blocks
(6inch solid blocks
), or 35-40 blocks
(8inch hollow blocks
), the number of blocks
Your mould in this range of 30blocks to 40blocks will determine the quality of the block.

When I say the quality of the block what
I mean is the strength based on the cement
and sharp sand mixing ratio and the compacting force
used doing the cement making.

In terms of making mortar for mason one bag of cement
mortar (soft mixture of sharp sand and cement
used in laying blocks
) can lay up to 100 solid blocks
(6inch) or 100 hollow blocks
(8inch).

Be informed that the bigger the size of the block the lesser the number.

However, you can still lay more the block
with just a bag of cement mortar or a lesser number of blocks with a bag of cement mortar, everything depends on the quality of the house you intend to build.

Mortar made with a very high concentration of cement tends to hold the blocks stronger and helps to prevent easy cracking of building walls later.

So please carefully discuss with a builder near you to ascertain the appropriate number of blocks
a cement bag mortar can lay for you by specifying the type of block you are using for the building.

Thank you very much for your time.

Welcome home valued reader.

Please get this straight.

Immediately after;
If you notice that a condom has broken in the course of sexual intercourse, kindly stop any sexual activity and move away from your partner quickly.

If you have had sex without a condom, remember that there are a few things you can do immediately to help.

Here are the guidelines to follow;

1. Use the bathroom

First, head to the bathroom to remove lingering fluids from the vagina, penis, or anus.

This can make you feel more comfortable and help remove bacteria that could result in urinary tract infections (UTIs).

You can sit on the toilet and push out your genital out any remaining fluid. Peeing can also help.

Just know that if you have a vulva and have had penis-in-vagina sex, peeing will not remove the risk of pregnancy.

That is because sperm has already travelled toward the egg.

Do not douche, but do wash up

It is a myth that genital areas need a thorough cleanse after sexual activity.

While washing and drying genital areas can further increase your comfort, vaginal or anal douching can actually put you at increased risk of infection.

This is because douching products can cause irritation and inflammation.

So if you want to wash, simply have a shower or use lukewarm water to splash the area.

Please make sure you take time to ask yourself how you are feeling.

It is normal to experience a wide range of emotions after sex without a condom, whether that is worry, anger, or sadness.

Try to speak to friends or family about the situation so that they can support you.

If you are still not comfortable speaking to anyone you know, consider reaching out to Planned Parenthood or the National Coalition for Sexual Health for help.

Thank you very much for your time.

There are some aspects of our current educational system that needs to review. I personally don’t subscribe to the notion that our educational system is bad. We can work on it to become better. We can’t just brush it off like that.

The politicisation of our educational system is one big problem that must be eradicated if not we will never be able to catch up with our African peers. We keep changing the system for no apparent reason. We were smoothly running a 3-year high school system. Suddenly a new government comes to power and decides to change the high school system to 4 years. Another government comes and reverted it to 3 years. It is appalling and uncalled for.

Because of political expediency, we rushed in implementing a free senior high school program just because we promised in our manifesto without considering all other factors that come into play. We are always reactive instead of proactive. We changed the syllabus for our basic school system and for over 2 years we haven’t provided textbooks and other teaching materials that are needed. We are now hearing of plans by the Ghana Education Service to introduce uniforms for public school teachers. Really? Are we serious in this country?

Proposed uniform for public school teachers

Why are we doing this to ourselves? Should it always be about politics? If we really want to change this country then we must be prepared to do what is right and stop playing politics with everything.

Kindly follow me, like and comment on my articles and also share them as well.

 

There must be some reason why a guy (or woman) embarks on a s£xual voyage and never returns. There are a variety of reasons why this occurs. As a general rule, it is induced by s£xual activity or underlying medical issues.

During s£x, there are two common causes of death, according to a study.

Addiction to Drugs

There are many people who succumb to this common habit, especially when they’re more concerned with their partner’s well-being than they are with their own needs. Although this can be risky, a large number of people take medicines to enhance their intercourse performance.

The use of illegal narcotics could result in the sudden death of a couple while having s£x. Some people take narcotic medicines and alcohol at the same time. Some people even combine booze and s£x enhancers. The usage of marijuana or cocaine by chronic drug users is not uncommon. Hypotension (low blood pressure) can lead to mortality when a nitrate-containing medicine is coupled with an s£x-enhancing substance. Drugs such as cocaine can also cause heart attacks, seizures and respiratory depression.

Prevention

A drug’s most effective defence against addiction is just abstaining from using it in the first place.

The use of s£x-enhancement medicines should be avoided at all costs.

If you’re having trouble quitting drug misuse on your own, seek the assistance of a doctor, therapist, or other health care professional.

A heart attack.

Having a heart attack is another major cause of death that occurs suddenly while having a sexual relationship. A blood clot is the most common cause of a heart attack. Tissues that are deprived of blood eventually perish.

In general, men face a greater danger than women. People over the age of 45, women over the age of 55, those with diabetes, hypertension, and those who smoke or use illegal drugs are all at risk for heart disease.

Prevention

If you want to lessen your chances of having a heart attack, try these tips.

Eat a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol and high in fiber, maintain a healthy weight, and engage in regular exercise to lower your blood cholesterol. If your cholesterol is still high despite your best efforts, talk to your doctor about drugs that may help.

Maintaining a healthy weight and not smoking are the best ways to lower high blood pressure. If your blood pressure persists despite your efforts, speak with your doctor about your treatment choices.

Keep an eye on your blood sugar levels if you have diabetes. People with diabetes are more likely to suffer a heart attack than those who do not.

Ghana Education Service (GES) is an organization responsible for seeing the day to day activities of teachers in Ghana from Kindergarten to Senior High Schools.

New pictures circulating on social media seems to suggest that, teachers under GES may be wearing a uniform, just like the security services in Ghana ( Soldiers, Police, Immigration, Custom Officials and Prison Service).

Unconfirmed reports have it that, this is a proposed uniform for teachers under the Ghana Education Service. 

Although it’s circulating on the various social media platforms, GES is yet to clarify the issue. The main teacher unions GNAT, NAGRAT, Coilation of Concerned Teachers and ATAG have not officially come out if they have agreed for their members to wear uniform.

In Ghana, most of the workers in specific Uniform, enjoy uniform allowances. Teachers may negotiate for such allowance if it becomes mandatory for them to wear uniform.

Some years ago, female teachers were usually seen wearing a particular uniform but as time passed by, each Madam, wear what she likes to school.

The question is will teachers accept to wear the uniform if it becomes mandatory or they may not? As it stands now, we wait for further development.

Social Media users haven’t taken it lightly with their distasteful responses to supposed leaked photos which are in the process of becoming the official uniform for Ghanaian public school teachers across the country.

Ghanaians seem to disagree with the supposed new uniform yet to be made public to all public school teachers.

They believe it’s just not professional nor ethical for teachers to be in uniforms likewise the students too. This massive reaction to this picture now circulating widely on social media is just not settling down well with worried Ghanaians.

They have tabled out their reasons as to why they don’t and will not support this old-fashioned agenda. Some of the comments were also directed to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on their worrisome state with this news on the supposed leaked uniform for public school teachers.

Do you agree with this supposed yet-to-be-announced teachers uniform?
