According to witness reports, Boko Haram gunmen and suicide bombers killed at least fifteen people in an attack in the city of Maiduguri, Nigeria on Sunday, before the military forced the militants to retreat.

Locals reported hearing gunfire as evening prayers ended at local mosques. The military pushed back the militants, who were on trucks and firing at civilians with guns and grenade launchers, with heavy gunfire. Amidst the gunfire, suicide bombings were carried out.

A local resident Sheshu Mala said that during the attack, “all the residents in the area fled [from] their homes to other parts of the city.” As people fled, a female suicide bomber ran into a group of people in the suburbs, where a number of people fled to, and detonated herself. Another suicide bomber also carried out an attack.

Government sources say ten other suicide bombers have been killed.

The militant group Boko Haram started in the city of Maidugari, where the attacks took place; they lost the territory three years ago as the military retook the city.

The news came after another Boko Haram attack on the village of Kimba killed at least fourteen people.

We often think that great placement assistance comes only from big corporations. This concept is not always true in every sense. It has been noted time and again that smaller organizations or corporations helped their clients in finding great opportunities and openings.

With ever increasing status of unemployment across the globe, the number of skilled workers looking for suitable jobs has increased drastically. This is not unknown to the employers and as a result, they are thinking harder and taking longer time to judge the right candidate for their openings. Since, there are options to choose from number of skilled employees, employers try to identify the one best suited for the open position.

Many companies are even trying to outsource their entire process of hiring to various placement agencies. For every type of industry, there exists an agency for staffing, specialized in diverse niche ranging from legal placement service to getting internet programmers. Functioning of staffing agencies

The staffing agencies offer varied services depending on the particular agency. However, the basic functioning remains same where the objective of these companies is to provide assistance in job placement to the job seekers. If the agency believes that a candidate is an ideal one for an open position, then it tries to coach the candidate through the whole process of applying for that job. These may include evaluation of the job seeker’s resume and making the necessary changes in the styles and outlook. Moreover, these agencies set up mock interviews for their clients while supplying model question and answers of a typical interview. This helps the candidates to get accustomed to the interview environment and get less stiff during the final interview. It also helps them to be more comfortable while giving the actual one. Further, they provide valuable interview tips to the candidates regarding making successful negotiations with the employers.

Therefore, getting good placement assistance from staffing agencies (may be through the corporation where the candidates are taking their formal education and training) is vital for job seekers in finding a good job fit. At the same time staffing agencies are essential for employers to find the best available candidate for their companies and make their choice from the cream of candidates already selected by the agencies. Without staffing agencies, the hiring companies need to build their own one or meet many more potential candidates and evaluate them before making the selection. Thus, taking help from external staffing agencies helps the employers save some precious time and money.

Getting placement assistance from the big / Small Corporation

The primary reason for job seekers to work with placement agencies is as these placement services are offered without any added cost. A good corporation (such as an educational institute or training center) is it big or small should have either been tied with good placement agencies or build their own placement networks by inviting partnership with potential employers. Placement agencies can offer its services free of cost to the candidates as it receives payments from the companies where they supplied the potential candidate. The agencies, however, only get paid once the supplied candidate secures a position in the company. Therefore, the agencies really try their level best to groom the candidate and make sure that he or she gets the position. Besides, the agencies only select the right candidates for the job, making the life of employers easier. This system therefore, serves well for both the employers and the job seekers. The placement agencies need to fulfill the interests of both the companies and the candidates.

The difference between Big and Small Corporation

Good corporations, whether small or big need to have stable tie ups with several quality placement agencies. This is the reason why often it does not matter whether you are in a big corporation or relatively smaller one. Both small and big corporations may take help from the same placement agencies and eventually the talent and aptness of the job seeker makes the difference. A big corporation can have its own placement cells acting the same manner as a placement or staff agencies, whether the smaller one will depend on the agencies alone. However, in the job market it not always matters a lot as well as placement agencies are professional enough to handle large number of candidates seeking for jobs in various niches. A good corporation gives comprehensive training and education to its candidates of each course it offers. It typically makes the job seekers ready for the industry on completion of its courses. It should provide them all types of facilities so they can prepare themselves effectively as well as polish them in every aspect. They must be given individual attention and relevant industry exposures to have job-oriented trainings. While opting for a course or training for a big or small corporation, do check its recruiter background and whether new employees are joining hands with them thereby increasing its employer’s database with every passing day.

Dark Ambiguity, “The Concept of Darkness in the Human Psyche”

Little is known and little has been presented about the presence of this peculiar propensity of the human psyche. It is and remains a powerful evolutionary adaptation (hard wired) in the human mind with it’s distinct “generalized purpose” As part of our self preservation apparatus, our minds have generalized all perceptions of darkness and associated these with potential or impending evil, danger or harm. Virtually all evil that has befallen us is shrouded or associated with darkness.

On Monday, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a decision to allow gay and bisexual men in the United States to donate blood. To be allowed, the men must avoid sexual intercourse with the same sex for at least one year.

Men have been asked whether they had sex with men since 1977. During the HIV/AIDS crisis, in 1983, the FDA started banning the men from donating their blood. Since then, medical and gay rights groups, like The National Gay Blood Drive, advocated lifting the blood donation federal ban on the men.

In May 2015, the FDA first proposed allowing gay and bisexual men to donate if they do not make sexual contact with the same sex for the minimum of twelve months. About half of 700 comments on the proposal suggested upholding the ban. This month the FDA repeals the ban and approves the proposal.

Activists criticize the FDA’s restrictions as “discriminatory”. Nonetheless, other countries like Australia, Japan, and the United Kingdom enforce similar restrictions on gay and bisexual men. Australia has enforced the rule for more than a decade.

Annually, about 15.7 million units of blood have been donated in the U.S. According to a 2010 UCLA study, lifting the ban will increase annual U.S. blood donations by 2–4%.

The FDA has screened the donations for transmissible diseases like HIV before shipment. Australia has done the same.

On Monday, a suicide bomber blew himself up on a motorcycle in Bagram District, Afghanistan. The bombing killed six US NATO service members and injured several others.

According to NATO and Afghan officials, the bombing occurred at 1:30pm local time in a village near Bagram Airfield. Bagram Airfield is located about 40 km (25 mi) north of Kabul, the Afghan capital.

The bombing killed six US NATO soldiers. The US Department of Defense delayed officially releasing their names, following policy, but all the victims have been identified.

One of them is Joseph Lemm, aged 45. Lemm served fifteen years as an officer of the New York City Police Department and has a wife and two children.

Another is Adrianna Vorderbruggen, an openly lesbian US Air Force major. Vorderbruggen advocated repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and is now married to her same-sex partner. The couple has a son.

The others are Peter Taub from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Michael Anthony Cinco from Rio Grande Valley, Texas, age 28; Chester McBride Jr., Statesboro, Georgia; and Louis Bonacasa, Coram, New York.

The bombing also injured others, including two US military personnel and, according to an Afghan official, three local police officers.

Via email and Twitter, the Taliban, whose regime the US overthrew after invading the country in 2001, claimed responsibility to the bombing.

Currently, about 10,000 US, and less than half as many NATO, military personnel remain in Afghanistan.

Yesterday, three people, all of whom had previous criminal arrests, appeared in court in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, accused of first degree murder; they allegedly killed two Mac’s convenience store clerks during robberies at two different stores on Friday.

According to police, the victims were alone in their respective stores when the gunmen arrived. The clerks were shot dead, both within a short period of time, and the suspects left with a small amount of money. Karanpal Bhandu, one of the victims, was taken to hospital and died, while another, Ricky Cenabre, was found dead in the store’s storage room.

One 13-year-old boy briefly appeared in court yesterday, crying during the proceedings. His name cannot be disclosed. The next hearing in his case is set for January 4 next year. The boy has previously been charged with illegally carrying weapons, including nunchucks and bear spray, and robbery.

Another man accused, 27-year-old Colton Steinhauer, is supposed to appear again in court on January 11. He has allegedly violated his probation orders, and has been convicted of multiple crimes, including assault causing bodily harm.

The third man, 24-year-old Laylin Delorme, has repeatedly been convicted of crimes in recent years. For assault with a weapon he received six month prison sentences twice, once in 2010 and once in 2014, losing his right to own firearms. He has also previously been jailed for two years after being convicted of possessing drugs for trafficking. Delorme has previously posted images featuring firearms onto social media, including one captioned “ski mask on I’m coming for your ice, bare face I’m coming for your life”; Steinhauer has also posted similar posts onto his social media accounts. Delorme is also expected to appear in court on January 11.

Edmonton Police Chief Rod Knecht said the murders were “absolutely unnecessary”, “gratuitous”, and “evil.”
