Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are preparing for their highly anticipated Monday night debate showdown in ways that appear to be as different as their candidacies. One looks to be hunkering down with homework, research and rehearsals, while the other seems to be taking an on-the-fly casual approach to what could be the most important 90 minutes of the presidential election.
The first presidential debate could easily become one of the most watched events ever, and it will be nearly impossible to avoid seeing at least some parts of it on a television screen, cell phone, tablet or laptop or social media.
Here's what we know about how they are preparing:


These wonderful organisations, men and women are the outstanding winners of the Nigeria Safety Award for Excellence.

They have displayed a true commitment to promoting and raising safety consciousness in Nigeria.
We wish to use this medium to say a big thank you to every participant, sponsors and well wishers. We are sincerely grateful.

OFILI SPEAKS: Addicted To Truth

Stop criticizing the Church or else you won’t get invited to speak there.
Stop accusing our schools of mis-educating our youths or else they will never allow you speak to their students.
Stop exposing the hypocrisy of our politicians or you may never get invited to Abuja to speak at that Conference.
In others words “OFILI” stop speaking the truth so that you can get paid!
But I can’t stop speaking the truth … I am addicted to it.
I don’t want to get paid for suppressing the truth. I don’t want money for lying to the youths.
Or honorariums for honoring compromised Pastors. All I want to do is speak the truth, whether is makes me famous or not.

Because the Truth at the end of the day is all that matters.

TECH WORLD: Uber launches first ever driverless car service in the US

In an ambitious experiment, a fleet of cars laden with lasers, cameras and other sensors — but with no one’s hands on the wheel — were to be deployed by the web-based ride service on the challenging roads of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, steering themselves to pick up regular Uber passengers who are used to being fetched by cars driven by humans. 


Last week, we heard of Hiliary's fight with Pneumonia.
