I WANNA CREATE A DIFFERENCE IN AFRICA.

Imagine Africa with free access to information!, Free Access to Information means, free access to education content, health care, knowledge, financial services and almost free access to everything. People in Africa are not informed, this is the reason many African countries are very poor and still struggling.

Through the integration of Information Communication Technologies in Service delivery, we can achieve the sustainable development goals in Africa. Am dedicated to making a change on how things are done. ICTs are driving the education sector in Africa, mobile technologies are rapidly changing lives.

Let all African children have access to information & education content.

The Dot. In Your Gmail Address Doesn’t Matter.

The Dot. In Your Gmail Address Doesn’t Matter.

For quite a long time Gmail users have always thought that having albert.smith@gmail.com and albertsmith@gmail.com are two different email addresses, For just that reason, Google decided to do things differently from other email providers when it launched Gmail.

Namely, it decided to ignore periods in its users’ email addresses altogether.

That’s right—they make absolutely no difference. As a post on Google’s help forums clearly explains:

  • albertsmith@gmail.com =alb.er.t.sm.i.th@gmail.com
  • albertsmith@gmail.com = ALBERTSMITH@gmail.com
  • albertsmith@gmail.com = Albert.Smith@gmail.com

You could even email a.l.b.e.r.t.s.m.i.t.h@gmail.com, and your message would still make its way to the very same donut-loving dude.

So the inclusion of dots on to your Gmail address don’t actually matter, never say your receiving someone else’s message’s just because you missed a dot between your initials on the address. However this doesn’t apply yo the other emailing companies like Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo Mail, Apple iCloud.

“Every Guy Could Use A Pair of These!”, Every Man is Obsessed With These Men’s Dress Shows – They Are Hand Made And Can Rival Much Higher Pricier Brands.

“Every Guy Could Use A Pair of These!”, Every Man is Obsessed With These Men’s Dress Shows – They Are Hand Made And Can Rival Much Higher Pricier Brands.

Dress shoes pose a conundrum for many guys: On the one hand, you want your shoes to be comfortable and of high craftsmanship; on the other hand, you don’t want to have to spend upwards of $500 on a pair to get those features.

Paying for quality is smart, but not everyone can (or wants to) spend more than $200 on a pair of black lace-ups or loafers. This notion resonated with Ariel Nelson and Lane Gerson, co-founders of the wildly successful men’s footwear company Jack Erwin; so much so that they quit their day jobs to start this venture.

We built Jack Erwin because we couldn’t find the shoe we wanted — so really we are the best representation of our customer. We focus on what we would want from a brand and go with it,” Nelson and Gerson told Business Insider.

Since launching the direct-to-consumer company back in 2013, Jack Erwin has come to offer 16 different “well-made, beautifully designed shoes at an affordable price” — ranging from suede driving loafers to leather bluchers and wingtip combat boots. In keeping with the mindset of company’s namesakes (Nelson and Gerson’s fathers, “two men who appreciate great shoes, but who will never pay more than $200 on a pair”), the most expensive three pairs in its collection are just $220. The other 13 are less than $200. 

For today’s wolves of Wall Street, that’s a deal. For comparison’s sake, the average Salvatore Ferragamo loafer will set you back at least $500, if not $600 or $700. Even Allen Edmonds dress shoes, which are by and large what the majority of finance guys wear (or aspire to wear) on a daily basis, run closer to $400 a pair on average.

Accessibility is a very much an issue in the men’s dress shoe market; and it’s one Jack Erwin is tackling — not only by offering its customers affordable prices, but by accompanying those prices with style and comfort that can rival much pricier pairs. “After the break in period, comfort is very important,” Gerson explained to us. “To really look good and feel good you have to be comfortable. We have worked with our factories in Spain to find high-quality leathers that soften as they wear. We’ve increased the flexibility of our insole boards and leather outsoles, and we’ve introduced rubber sole options to further address comfort and durability,” added Nelson. They just look great on top of that.

If you’re in the market for new oxfords for work, or casual loafers for weekends, have a look. All signs point to Jack Erwin being a solid investment.

You may need up to 5 wears to fully break in these Goodyear-welted bluchers, but after that, the leather should begin soften and conform to your feet. Their a brogued overlay and traditional long-wing details are nice touches for the modern gentleman who’s concerned with style as well as comfort.

Suede driving loafers are a great choice for casual Fridays and weekends. The ‘Ernie’ comes in three colors, though the navy is our top pick.

Carter

Not every guy is a boots guy, but if you’re one, you could do much worse than the ‘Carter’. The military-style boot should work well with your jeans and chinos, and if you’re on the more stylish side, the burgundy color (they also come in black and chocolate brown) is a welcome department from the norm.
