Jemal Abraha

13-year-old Jemal Abraha from Eritrea has become quite the star after creating a formula that associates a person’s phone number with their age.

This fit has earned him a place at Apple where he has been offered a lifetime scholarship and a signing fee of 30 million dollars to work with the company upon graduation.

The formula takes less than a minute to solve, find it below;

  • Take the last digit of your phone number
  • Multiply it by 2
  • Add 5 to it
  • Multiply the answer by 50
  • Add 1766
  • Subtract your year of birth

The answer you get must be three digits with the last two digits as your age

Praise the Lord

By Alfred Saforo (alforo@gmail.com)

Praise the LORD, all nations; Laud Him, all peoples! For His lovingkindness is great toward us, And the truth of the LORD is everlasting. Praise the LORD! Psalm 117:1-2 NASB

Insight

Have you ever said, “I can’t think of anything God has done for me, how can I praise Him?” This psalm gives two reasons for praising God: His great love toward us, and His faithfulness that endures forever.

Challenge

If God did nothing else for us, He would still be worthy of our highest praise.

Memory verse

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the LORD! Psalm 150:6 NASB

Inflatable hoodie

 

Nap on the go with the inflatable hoodie!

As normal as any hoodie except it comes with a valve which you can blow into for a makeshift pillow, whenever and wherever you get the urge to nap.

So you can rest  just as comfortably when you’re not in your own  bed.

Number your days

By Alfred Saforo (alforo@gmail.com)

So teach us to number our days, That we may present to you a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12 NASB

Insight

Realising that life is short helps us to use the little time we have more wisely and for eternal good.

Challenge

Keep in mind that your days are numbered. In your quiet moments, ask yourself, “what do I want to see happen in my life before I exit this side of eternity, what small step could I take towards achieving this purpose today?”

Memory verse

Since his days are determined, the number of his months is with You. Job 14:5a NASB

Women’s day

 
March 8 is the day set aside to celebrate women all over the world.
International women’s day has been observed since the 1900s and was adopted by the United Nations in 1975. More recently, it has been commemorated with a yearly theme, most bordering on women’s rights and empowerment.
As we reflect on the theme for 2017, “BE BOLD FOR CHANGE“, I hope we will remember the words of Rosa Parks;
You must never be fearful about what you are doing when it is right
To the women taking bold steps to effect positive change socially, politically, culturally, economically and otherwise; you are special, you are celebrated, you are important, you are loved.
Happy International Women’s day!
