In November 2016, law enforcement provided Silicon Valley giants, Yahoo with data files which a third party claimed was Yahoo user data. This data was analysed by Yahoo with the assistance of external forensic experts and found that it appears to be Yahoo users data. Based on further analysis of this data by the forensic experts, Yahoo believes that an unauthorized third party stole data associated with a broader set of user-accounts in August 2013, including all Yahoo account holders and email users. Yahoo has not been able to identify the intrusion associated with this theft. Yahoo believes that this incident is likely distinct from the 500-million hacked accounts they disclosed on 22 September 2016; another hacking-incident totally separate from this one which has affected over 1-billion Yahoo email account users.
MMM is an international mutual-aid Community created to improve people's lives and to overcome social inequalities. In 2016 the MMM Community united millions of people in Nigeria. Regardless of their age, social status, ethnicity or confession, millions of Nigerians help each other with MMM and change their lives for the better. The abbreviation MMM was believed to be coined from the names of the 3 founders of MMM Global; Sergei Mavrodi, his brother Vyacheslav Mavrodi, and Olga Melnikova. MMM is an acronym which means Mavrodi Mondial Movement . MMM Nigeria is a 'subsidiary' of MMM Global. MMM is a community of people providing each other financial help on the principle of gratuitousness, reciprocity and benevolence. In MMM you don’t have to make contracts or pledge your property. In MMM there are no lenders and no debtors. Everything is very simple: one participant asks for help — another one helps. The only thing that MMM demands from its participants is to be honest and kind to each other. You ask for financial help when you need it, you give financial help when you are able to do it.
The internet may be a cool way to communicate and make friends but there's so much more to the internet than most people realize. There are so many legitimate ways of making money and expanding one's business online but that takes practice, ingenuity and a whole lot of access to the internet at an affordable rate and reliable speed. Which is why the introduction of the Long Term Evolution (LTE) also known as the 4G LTE comes at a pivotal time in Africa's fast-developing e-commerce economies. 4G LTE is a standard set for high-speed wireless communication for smartphones, tablets, netbooks, notebooks and wireless hot-spots terminals. 4G LTE is 10 times faster than 3G; 4G LTE averages up to 1,000-Megabits per second (Mbps) while actual use may be in the region of 100 Mbps. So what does this mean for young African entrepreneurs who depend on the web to sustain and grow their business-base daily?
For those who don't know (and apparently, a lot of people are genuinely unaware); Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving Day and the Friday before Cyber Monday in the United States of America - USA. It is a busy shopping day and is a holiday in some states/regions. In recent times (owing to the technological advancements of science and social media), Black Friday has become a global shopping holiday when everyone gets to buy stuff at outrageous discount prices. Saving for Black Friday has become somewhat of a religion for this writer and for many other tech-savvy geeks alike. It's amazing the amount of amazing deals one can get on Black Friday, knowing fully well as Africans that "Christmas" is closely around the festive corner. In times past, it used to be extremely difficult and sometimes nearly impossible for Africans to partake in this global shopping phenomena, but not anymore thanks to the emergence of MALL-FOR-AFRICA; one of Africa's brightest and most innovative 21st Century startup companies.
Starting up a business anywhere in Africa is never easy. Almost everything seems to be against young entrepreneurs:- the economy, the environment, lack of steady power/electricity supply, outrageous foreign exchange rates and a dire lack of government support, especially to those in rural and less privileged areas just to mention a few. But despite all these challenging challenges, young Pan-African leaders prove time and time again that we can achieve great things through innovation and determination. Access Cards NG are no different. The rise of this young Pan-African business-startup is one which all Africans and business people alike can learn and indeed benefit from. Their high-standard services for businesses, organizations, governments and visionary individuals are world class.
