An effort to empower women and girls while connecting them to opportunities for personal growth, technology giant, Intel Corporation, has launched a new radio show and a features column on a top Nigerian blog. The initiative has demonstrated Intel’s commitment to empowering girls and women by not only providing digital literacy skills to girls and women, but also by pushing the concept of digital literacy forward through new, innovative and scalable models The radio show tagged ‘She Will Connect radio show’, which is a part of Intel’s She Will Connect programme, is targeted at helping young girls and women access an innovative combination of digital literacy training, online peer network, and gender-relevant content. Speaking at the unveiling of the radio programme and column, the Public Relations and Marketing Manager, Intel West Africa, Adim Isiakpona, disclosed that the programme is expected to bring millions of women online, and reduce the gap in access to internet and digital literacy skills for young women by up to 50%, while also connecting millions of women to new opportunities through technology. According to Isiakpona, “Girls and women are an important part in the growth of any economy and the She Will Connect programme has gone a long way to reach and enable them to do more. “ Intel will continue to drive momentum into its She Will Connect programme. We want to use this radio show and the column on Bella Naija, to empower several girls and women by closing the gender gap in education access, inspiring more girls and women to become creators of technology, and connecting girls and women to opportunity through technology access.” , he explained. Commenting on the success of the empowerment programme, She Will Connect Ambassador, Titilope Sonuga, observed that several girls and women have been enabled and connected to endless opportunities that abound online through the programme. “Working with strategic NGOs, we have equipped girls and women with digital skills, from basic knowledge of computer operations, computer programming and software development. We are optimistic that the She Will Connect radio show on Women FM and the blog posts will further address gender relevant issues and help to close the technology gender gap”. Titilope Sonuga, who is a renowned poet, actress and a Civil engineer will be the face and voice of the She Will Connect Radio show and the blog column, called ‘Through Her Eyes’.

Three boys, 11-months old Aderomola Orekoya, 4 year old Adedamola Orekoya and 6 years Demola Orekoya were taken from their home in Surulere yesterday morning April 8th by a housemaid their mum employed just a day before. The woman said she placed an ad on OLX for a housemaid and the woman showed up. After interviewing her and speaking with two of her supposed relations who claimed they lived in Ikorodu, she decided to employ her. Only for the housemaid to disappear with her boys the following day. The housemaid phones and those of her 'relatives' are now all off.
If you have any info on the kids, contact the nearest police station or call 08052062117, 09098097935

Last week Micron announced its newest solid-state drive (SSD), one that uses its densest process ever and one that has a chip capable of programming the memory to act like a high-performance SLC or high-capacity MLC flash drive. This new client-class SSD is known as the M600 SSD and uses Micron's new 16nm lithography with 128GB NAND density.
That greater density allows the company to drop the cost per GB to as low as $0.45. In addition to that, the ability to dynamically program the flash also reduces power use while improving write performance up to 2.8 times over models without this feature, according to Senior Technical Marketing Engineer for Micron Jon Tanguy. Tanguy also added that the M600 also has a sequential read/write rate of 560 MBps and has a random read/write rate of up to 100,000 I/Os per second and 88,000 I/Os per second, respectively.
The M600 is based on an 8-channel Marvell controller that comes with government-grade hardware encryption using the 256-bit AES protocol. This SSD is being marketed to manufacturers of corporate notebooks and ultra-thin netbooks as well as workstations and desktop PCs. As a result, the M600 comes in three form factors: a 2.5" SSD, an mSATA card and an M.2 memory stick. The mSATA and M.2 form factors come in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities for $80, $140 and $260, respectively. The 2.5" SSD comes in all the same capacities for the same prices but adds in a 1TB version that runs $450. In addition to that, the prices drop depending on the quantity you purchase, meaning the more you buy the cheaper they are per unit.
These prices may seem a little steep but they are in line with consumer-class products. SanDisk recently released its Ultra II SSD, which sells for $0.44 per GB. This SSD uses triple-level cell NAND flash, which means it stores three bits of data per NAND flash cell making it the densest industry specification to date. However, the more bits that are stored in cells the bigger the potential for data errors, which requires companies to create more sophisticated ECC.
Micron, instead of packing more bits in cells or over-provisioning its SSD with flash capacity, reduced the size of its process technology and added what "Dynamic Write Acceleration". Dynamic Write Acceleration is a special firmware that changes flash cells from single-level cell technology to multi-level cell technology. According to Tanguy, "So you can swap back and forth dynamically in order to deliver a pool of SLC or MLC capacity. Any new data programming is performed in SLC mode for really high performance."
This new firmware allows Micron to create a dynamic pool of cache without the need to overprovision. "We think doing this gives us a good method to address client loads that tend to be bursty in nature as opposed to enterprise data center write workloads that tend to be sustained," Tangy added. However, changing the NAND flash from SLC to MLC and back does increase write amplification. Increasing this wears out the usable lifespan of NAND flash more quickly. "The additional write amplification introduced with the new dynamic write acceleration firmware is manageable," Tanguy stated.

Have you ever had your cell phone, tablet, etc., battery die and not be able to charge it? It’s a very frustrating experience.
This is where a portable power bank charger can be an absolute Godsend.
With the advances in technology, our gadgets provide us with convenience and lightening speed communication.
Our mobile phones are becoming smaller and more economical so that people can easily carry them in their pockets.
In the last 20 years there has been an amazing shift towards buying portable devices that enhance the quality of our lives. Cell phones have evolved from being bulky to being sleek lightweight efficient devices. With the tremendous increase in their usage there is a need to keep them charged at all times. It is for this reason that many companies have introduced Power Banks into the market.
