Nigerian currency, Naira has dropped eight points to trade at a new record low of 436 against the United States dollar in black market, on Thursday night, September 22 to Friday morning, September 23.
This comes against the N428/$1 rate it was on Wednesday, September 21.
The Naira has continued to weaken after a data released by the National Bureau of Statistics showed that the economy was in recession. Also, the persistent dollar shortages on the official market is making life hard for Bureau de change operators.
But according to the Association of Bureau De Change Operators of Nigeria, the naira would recover by Monday, September 26 due to the introduction of Travelex, a licensed forex dealer.
Travelex, an international money transfer organisation, was officially directed by the CBN to distribute forex to the BDC operators by Monday.
Starting your morning with music you find beautiful, or a book you find inspirational or motivational, is the perfect way to set yourself up for success.
It can give you something to look forward to in the morning, and sets you up with the right mindset to greet the day.
You can adjust your music for the type of day you want to have, whether you need something that gets you pumped for an action-packed day, or something more soothing so you can handle a stressful day.
The mind is hungry for new tidbits of information it can go to work on, and you should feed it every day, the same way you feed your body.
Choosing the Right Audio
Whether you pick a group of songs, or an audiobook that inspires you, is up to you. Choose your songs carefully though, as they can get stuck in your head, and if this sort of thing drives you crazy you might be better off listening to a book.
I love these quotes...
"Think about what your thinking about."
"Saw it first from a Joyce meyer book"
"Change your thoughts and you change your world"
By Norman Vincent Peale
"With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts"
By Eleanor Roosevelt.
So start your day today with songs or audio books that will channel your thoughts towards a more productive day.
Thank you. Keep reading kingdavidpeter blog.
I love you.
Is port Harcourt still safe?
Guess what is happening... I am running.. Literally running...
Was scouting for salvation ministry, getting to the junction I was directed,
I heard gun shots... (That is around presidential bus stop...)
Beloved brothers and sisters as men started running what did you expect of your humble servant I follow pick race..
Looking out I saw the police officers that were standing at that junction in front of me running when and how they over took me, I cannot say...
But fear thou not I am alive and for locating salvation ministry, I'd better find another road or it waits for my next trip to port Harcourt...
Thank you... Keep reading kingdavidpeter blog...

After 12 years and six kids together, Angelina Jolie files for divorce from Brad Pitt just after their two-year wedding anniversary. Subscribe now for the real story behind the split, only in PEOPLE.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may have had the ultimate Hollywood romance from the outside, but behind closed doors, their marriage was slowly coming apart.
After months of mounting tensions between the two, Jolie, 41, told Pitt she
wanted a divorce , an end to their two-year marriage and 12-year relationship.
"Things built and built over time – it wasn't any one thing," a source close to the actress tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story, on newsstands Friday. "She's loved this man for several years, and [divorce] is not something you do impulsively."
Meanwhile, a Pitt source tells PEOPLE: "There was clearly a breaking point, where she'd just had enough," says the Pitt source. "He may have been broken himself and said he couldn't go on, and she reacted. This has been difficult for a while."
In the cover story, sources detail how Jolie told Pitt she wanted a divorce, why he "begged" her to wait and how their relationship began to crumble after their 2014 wedding. They faced increasing differences over parenting styles (with Brad taking a "stricter approach versus Angelina’s "more relaxed attitude," according to another insider), the direction of their careers and more.
For more details inside Jolie and Pitt's decision to end their marriage, pick up this week's issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday
A Pitt source says Jolie told Pitt she was moving forward with the divorce just two days before she filed papers in an L.A. court on September 19 – and Pitt was "wrecked."
"He was appealing to her to do this quietly – not to save the marriage but to consider the well-being of the children – and it was ignored," says the Pitt source. But Jolie – who said in a statement the decision was "for the health of her family" – did "what she needed to do," says a source close to her.
For more on the divorce, watch People Cover Story: Brad & Angelina on the new People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN). Go to people.com/PEN or download the free app on your Smart TV, mobile and Web devices.
Still, both sides say Pitt and Jolie still love each other and expect them to find a way to "move forward in a dignified way," as a Pitt source puts it. Says a Jolie source: "They have six kids together and are always going to be in each other's lives."

When we get married, we promise to be together until death separates us. However, these couples decided not to wait till the end and not to let the death separate them. So, they got married in pink coffins!
This strange wedding ceremony has taken place in Bangkok, Thailand; in one of the local temples. Here is what they did. Several couples in their turn laid down in the pink coffin. There they have exchanged their wedding rings and pronounced their vows. As many as 10 couples have gotten married that way on one day.
Why did they pick such a bizarre ceremony for the best and most special day of their lives? Well, locals believe getting married in a pink coffin destroys bad luck and promises blessings and success to the newlyweds.
Then even more absurd things happened. The new husband and wife were covered with a piece of the white fabric, while lying in the coffin. It symbolizes their death and burial! And the monks started chanting over them and mourning them, as if the just married couple was dead!
After the wedding and the burial ceremonies were over, the couples went on to celebrate the marriage and had the feast. Every year on the Valentine ’s Day this local temple offers such unusual ceremonies to the brides and the grooms of Bangkok. They are done once a year. Thank God, we know how to do better and stay away from the heathen traditions!
Scrape Your Tongue
Taking time to scrape your tongue is one morning routine you won’t want to give up once you start it. It helps get rid of morning breath, and also is in line with the rejuvenation process you need to do to make the transition from sleep to wakefulness each day.
As a bonus you’ll be able to taste your food better without the film that’s on your tongue even after brushing your teeth.
The Right Scraper
Some toothbrushes come with a built-in scraper on the back of the head. If yours doesn’t have one you’ll want to invest in one. You can find some that are literally just a plastic triangle-shaped scraper, and others that feature special bristles that are designed to get into the grooves of your tongue. You can also go with the type that is stainless steel and U-shaped to get the job done.

Wake Up Earlier
In order to fit in a fantastic morning you’re going to need some extra time compared to your current routine.
If you’ve turned into a night owl because of the peace and quiet it affords, you’ll be equally satisfied by the same peace and quiet an early morning provides, and it’s simply a matter of shifting your personal time to the wee hours of the morning rather than late at night. The difference to your body is noticeable.
The Ideal Time to Wake Up
Wake up in conjunction with circadian rhythms if possible.
Civil twilight is a great time to wake up because there will be enough light to see, the birds are chirping, and you still have time to catch the sunrise if you’re keen. Since this time varies by the time of year, it may be more feasible during some seasons than others. Give yourself an hour and a half before you have to be out the door.
Its funny after this study I reduced the blinds in my room to just the inner ones so I could feel the sun rays penetrate them and meet me on the bed. Lol.. Ive Experienced this for like 4days nows and it feels like american movie or music video things... Lol.. Waking up earlier to watch the day brighten or the sun rise (if you're that patient) comes with its own joy... Try any.

TRANSITION INTO THE UNKNOWN
It is a natural phenomenon that existence carries along with it advancement. In this, the pace, direction and specification of the advancement remains naturally unknown. Albeit an inkling could be drawn from the happenings of the present.
- Going by the steady ticking of the clock, it becomes nothing of a surprise to notice that, it has been about fifteen years, since the 20th century gave way. The transition was not overtly dramatic, whilst being characterized by some peculiarities. With about eighty-five years left for the 21st century to give way, some individuals are of the opinion that premature it is, to determine its outcome. But then, with proper calculation as well as a perspicacious insight, the landing point of a projectile is determined long before it lands.
Having established the above fact, one can convincingly state that, the 21st century will most certainly give way for the transition, into a system yet to be known. Be this as it may, the seemingly contrasting views and opinions, are not to be utterly discarded.
Meanwhile, the process of moving or changing from one form or status to another, primarily explains the concept of transition. More so, for something to be unidentified or not yet known, it can as well be said to be unknown.
Individuals in various fields, have brought to the fore their stances, as regards what 21st century, supposedly has to offer.Some educationists are of the opinion that, 21st century learning will be purely learner-driven, with the breaking down of the traditional systems or models of education. While some individuals in the same field are opinionating that the systems of learning in the 19th and 20th centuries will be upheld, but with some modifications.
With individuals still in the euphoria of the various astonishing scientific discoveries already made, scientists are still of the opinion that facts yet uncovered remain inconclusively known – better still unknown. In stating this fact, they claim that certain ‘mysteries’ yet to be covered include: The identity of the dark matter, The nature of the dark energy that drives acceleration, relationship between genes, cancer and luck, the meaning of quantum entanglement, amongst many others.
In the medical field practitioners opine that owing to the speedy turn of systems as well as springing up of storage health conditions, the current facilities and systems may soon become obsolete.
Having stated the above, it is evident that the 21st century is characterized by same level of uncertainty. This is amidst its undeniable uniqueness.
Necessary at this point it is, to refer to Newton’s first law of motion which states that; ‘’ A body continues in its state of rest or uniform motion, unless being acted upon by an external force’’. By extension, the force is the determinant factor, as regards the direction of the motion. More so, the object progresses in motion, if the force that pulls it forward is greater. Or an object starts moving if the force that pushes it, is greater.
According to Albeit Einstein. The key to understanding every thing better, is looking deep into nature. Furthermore, a deep look into nature will uncover the fact that humanity is in motion – an increasing one. Referring to Newton’s law which hasn’t been refuted by anyone, the ‘force’, acting on the ‘relative motion’ of humanity is increasingly overwhelming, with part of the aftermaths being the uncertainty of events. These professionals haven’t ceased in acknowledging. Be that as it may, one can strongly opine that 21st century, will record a transition into an endpoint, system or era still unknown.
This ‘force’ can be attributed to the insatiability of humans’ quest and desires.
Furthermore, the natural and corporate right to be individuals, is partly posing a threat to the existence of humanity. Worse still, this is an irrevocable right.
By nature, humans seem untamable, in whatever facet this might be
viewed. If an individual is stopped from walking about, can he also be stopped from; thinking, associating or believing. Daily, problems arise as a result of the wrong channeling of these, amidst the warnings and enlightenment. One wonders the outcome of tomorrow at the regular and increasing display of the negative offshoots of individuality.
More worrisome, it is as this has partly proven to negate any point of order. As negligible as this might appear to be, its still a huge determinant factor as to how blissful or horrible, tomorrow might be.
More so, democracy is universally acclaimed to be the best system of governance, as no one has successfully debunked that. But one thing remains worthy of note which is the fact that, no system has been able to curtail individuals from conceptualizing or experimenting with ideals or beliefs. The future in this regard hangs in the balance.
Globally, there is an increasing and concerted fight against fundamentalism and extremism. At the same time, there is an increasing menace of extremism with a seemingly modifiable status. In view of this, one may ask; when shall they proponents of global peace, sing the victor’s song?
Applaudable are the efforts by some individuals as well as organizations aimed at eradicating poverty or substantially reducing the rate of unemployment. In fact, such effort is one notable goal of the global big players. As we all know, the world is tilting towards the line of rapid modernization. And with modernization comes mechanization. With various forms of uncertainty, being traceable to mechanization.
From the optimistic point of view, this uncertainty can be eradicated if the empowerment as well as enlightenment is brought to the nooks and crannies of the universe. But in the realistic sense, this appears to be a lifelong goal. Even if it were not, is it an achievement to be conclusively written on the pages of the 21st century? More so, when will majority of humanity be empowered such that poverty will become a strange topic to be discussed on the global stage?
Inasmuch as appreciable efforts a re being made in this regard, what tomorrow holds for this goal remains tightly occluded. What ever report read and circulated today, is purely theoretical; just a product of mere optimism.
Science they say rules the world. But then, many are eager to be in the know, as regards the direction humanity will be led, before the 21st century gives way.
The world of Medicine, is one area that has recorded tremendous success, within the last century. Just recently, there was a record of a successful head transplant in South Africa. Amidst all these, Medical Scientists insistently opine that, there are many more nuts to be cracked. In the past, the years set as limits had been reached, with no conclusive result. As a matter of consequence, they have been extended. Even at that, the practitioners have not yet given a conclusive report as to when it shall be. Thereby making ‘the near future’, become a cliché.
As earlier stated, scientists are in sessions of increasing experimentation. In a bid to answer some questions, many more are raised. The question of how to make life easier and productivity more efficient has to a reasonable extent been answered. Now the big question psychologists are asking is this; ‘’What shall be done to actively engage and increase the reasoning ability of individual?’’.
That which taught the inhabitants Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki painful lessons in August 1945; earlier started as a mere experimented object. Today, the majority is calling for the abolition, whilst some are spoiling for war. Of a truth, the world is puzzled on this. As in one on a journey to an unknown destination, the end to that is just being merely hoped for with uncertainty seen at various corners.
The information age, which was made possible by the capitalization of the computer microminiaturization advances, has continued to grow in leaps and bounds. In a bid to have a fail-proof network that could connect computers together and remain resistant to any single point of failure, the concept of the internet came to be, in 1969. A British scientist named Tim Berners –Lee is being appraised for the invention of the world wide web in 1989, as well as its introduction in 1991.Thereby making the internet, an easily accessible network.
Furthermore, the invention of the internet, has had some questions answered and some problems, theoretically solved. With its ever-evolving nature. Today, its essence has obviously become limitless. In that same limitlessness of the internet, concerned governments and organizations are daily faced with the onerous task of curbing its excesses. Be this as it may, the internet goes on in its sophistication. Then there the issue of whether the internet has many more grounds to conquer, or better still, the possibility of the internet being put under flawless oversight until the 21st century winds up. A conclusive answer, not likely to be given, in that regard.
Interstellar travel, remains a hard nut for astronauts to crack, after a successful attempt at interplanetary travel. Several efforts have been made, and structures put in place. Yet the future in this regard seems bleak. More than ever, efforts have been in the 21st century to uncover the bleakness of events, yet uncertainty beclouds its future.
The extrapolation so far is evident. if any century were to be associated with the most uncertainty, it’s the 21st century. Wherein today, we are filled with assurance but as regards what tomorrow holds, one can only wish, indeed no facet, is left out.
Nevertheless, it isn’t a cause to be paranoid but then, a lifejacket becomes necessary, in the light of the possibility of drowning.

The September 11 attacks (also referred to as
9/11 ) were a series of four coordinated
terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group
al-Qaeda on the United States on the morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001.
The attacks killed 2,996 people and injured over 6,000 others and caused at least $10 billion in property and infrastructure damage and $3 trillion in total costs.
Four passenger airliners operated by two major U.S. passenger air carriers (United Airlines and American Airlines)—all of which departed from airports on the northeastern United States bound for California—were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists , losing one of their passports in the World Trade Center area.
Two of the planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 , were crashed into the North and South towers , respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in New York City . Within an hour and 42 minutes, both 110-story towers collapsed , with debris and the resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the World Trade Center complex, including the 47-story 7 World Trade Center tower, as well as significant damage to ten other large surrounding structures. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77 , was crashed into the Pentagon (the headquarters of the
United States Department of Defense) in Arlington County, Virginia , leading to a partial collapse of the building's western side.
The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93 , initially was steered toward Washington, D.C. , but crashed into a field in Stonycreek Township near Shanksville, Pennsylvania , after its passengers tried to overcome the hijackers. It was the deadliest incident for firefighters and
law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 343 and 72 killed respectively.

Drink A Glass Of Warm Lemon Water
Drinking a glass of warm water with lemon first thing in the morning is an excellent way to get your body going. It’s like oil for the Tinman as it goes to work lubricating all of your different internal systems.
You want the water to be warm so that it’s not a shock to your system first thing in the morning. The lemon will help get your digestive system ready for the coming meals, and makes the water tastier. You can add a bit of honey to it as well if you want to cut down on some of the tartness.
The Rehydration Process
When you wake up in the morning you’ve just gone without water for about 8 hours, so it’s important to turn things around and start up the flow of water again. What you don’t want to do is leave out the water and go along with your day, having breakfast and other beverages before addressing your need for water.
NB: Drinking a glass of warm water with lemon first thing in the morning is an excellent way to get your body going. It’s like oil for the Tinman as it goes to work lubricating all of your different internal systems.
