Cultivating effective learning skills is of paramount importance if one must excel as a student, and by extension as a man. By man, I do not mean all male folks, but everybody. It is against this background that this treatise solely concerns itself with elucidating the skills in question. Skills such as:

Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story.

Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story is a 2009 movie directed by Thomas Carter, starring Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding Jr. and NAACP Image Award winner Kimberly Elise. It is a movie based on the life story of world-renowned neurosurgeon Ben Carson from 1961 to 1987. A Johnson and Johnson Spotlight Presentation, the movie aired on TNT on Saturday, February 7, 2009. It was also made in to an autobiography about his life as a kid to a surgeon.
Its title was re-used from a 1992 direct-to-video documentary about Ben Carson released by Zondervan.

The movie begins in present day 1987, where Dr. Ben Carson (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) goes to Germany to visit a couple named Peter and Augusta Rausch, who have twins conjoined at the head. Ben knows that chances of saving them both will be at risk, because one baby always dies in situations like that. Ben agrees to do the operation, but he will wait four months so he can come up with a plan to save them both. While looking into some of his books, the movie flashes back to the year 1961, where 11 year old Ben Carson (Jaishon Fisher) starts out life as an African American child from a one-parent home with failing grades at school. Ben has an older brother named Curtis. His mother, who dropped out in the third grade, starts making decisions for him. When her boys need to learn multiplication tables, she has them swear to learn them while she is gone to check herself into a mental institution. When she sees her two sons' success hindered by TV, she forbids them to watch it and commands them to read two books per week from the library and give her a book report, she also moves them to better schools.
Meanwhile as time passes,

Get Fired May 27 edition report...

It was a great relief shutting down the laptop computer at about 3:30pm on Friday 27, 2011; that effectively drew the curtain on the low-key launching of Get Fired…redefining purpose, winning back the future. It is an educational revival and student redemption project conceptualized by UKSolutions

HALLMARK COLLEGE IBADAN…breeding future leaders with the fear of God

May 27 has come and gone, but the memory will always linger on us at Get Fired. It is one of such memory that we bring to you in this profile.
During the planning stage of the May 27 programme, we met a wonderful citadel of learning, HALLMARK COLLEGE, situated at plot 11 – 14 Executive layout, Odo-Ona Elewe, Ibadan. We were there to secure their permission to have their school as the host of Get Fired, May 27 edition, but we left with a lasting impression. We decided to go some steps further by going beyond our business, to knowing more about the school and trust me, we weren’t disappointed. Some structures caught our attention,

GET FIRED… redefining purpose, winning back the future.

An Educational revival and Student redemption project initiated by UKSolutions to give the educational sector a strong footing.

It would amount to stating the obvious, that moral decadence, misplaced priority, academic ineptitude/indiscipline, which happens to be the bane of Nigerian students is assuming a dangerous trend quite inimical to the future highly coveted by our dear nation, Nigeria. It would also amount to bias if we shy away from beaming our searchlight on the archaic and obsolete administrative skills of most educational administrators around. Statistics revealed by examination bodies, educationists, and counselors alike in the country shows that something urgent must be done to save the dying educational sector.
