Jeremy Corbyn Calls for the BBC to Audit Itself over Gender Pay Gap

There is a bit of a controversy at the moment in the United Kingdom after a list of top earners in the BBC showed that men earned more than women across board.

Labour/opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn has added his voice to the discussion. ITV reports:

BBC "needs to look very hard at itself" over the gender pay gap.
The Labour leader said he would join more than 40 leading female stars in signing an open letter calling on the Director General Tony Hall to act.
He told The Andrew Marr Show the treatment of women by the broadcaster was "appalling".
"The BBC needs to look very hard at itself because the levels between the gender pay gap are quite astronomical," he said.
Mr Corbyn said Labour would insist on a gender pay audit of every organisation and would also look at the ratio between the chief executive and the lowest paid staff member of every public sector organisation.
"And the BBC is very much public sector," he added.

JarusHub and HotProForum Raise Standard for Online Debates in Nigeria

Leading career guidance, mentoring and management company JarusHub and its platform for professionals to meet and network announced the winners of their inaugural online debating competition on Monday evening.

Posting before the announcement was made, CEO of Jarus & JAN Internet Group, Jarus submitted: "The purpose of this debate is to improve the presentation, articulation and research skills of the debaters, who are from our Career Club. You are a group of young students, graduates and early career professionals. You have done very well. I have always been a fan of debate. At the risk of being immodest, I would say if there is anything like being the father of online debate in Nigeria, I deserve it, for far back 8 years ago, I championed organised debates on Nairaland Politics Section, and today, I still receive kudos for such initiative, which was never sustained when I moved on.
I am happy we have a platform to continue this, although the focus will continue to professionalism - not politics. We are building hot professionals here."

The competition was held between the 4 JarusHub Career Clubs (JCC) hosted on WhatsApp.

This set-up the final between JCC 2 and JCC 3 which held last Sunday with the topic: Agriculture is Fundamental to Nigeria's Emergence as a Global Economic Power: Agree or Disagree?

JCC 2 agreed with the motion while JCC 3 disagreed with it.

Both teams of 3 debaters were at their best but after a 24-hour poll, JCC 2 got 32 votes while JCC 3 30 votes. The winners get a free training slot with JarusHub Academy and a certificate of achievement while all members of their Career Club are eligible for Jarus' widely-acclaimed career guidance book, The Road to Victoria Island. The 2nd team also got consolation prizes.

The organizers have promised new innovations that are in line with their ethos of building young professionals and their capacity to deliver in the work place or as entrepreneurs.

How to Search With an Image on Google

Google is so popular as a search engine that it has become a verb in English language meaning to search for information online.

But do you know you can actually search for images and not just text? I am sure you might have wondered what that car you saw the other day is called or what that strange fruit is?

You don't have to keep wondering, just snap it and then go to Google Images, drag the picture from the location you have saved it and put it into the browser. Alternatively, click on the camera icon and upload the image into the search bar. 

Google will automatically upload it and give you the information it has on the picture with similar images to it. 

This is really cool, you should try it out.
