Typically, copulation time between pandas is about 30 seconds to five minutes.

The President said he had no doubt that he is the luckiest Nigerian.
“For me as an individual, this Easter coincides with the time I am leaving but I always say that I am one of the luckiest Nigerians. I am yet to see somebody luckier than me.
“From 1999, I was in the hands of government for 16 years. Not just in government as a parliamentarian because if you are a Senator or House of Representatives member, you take care of yourself, you live in your own house.
“I was in a cage, being taken care of by the government. From May 29, 1999 to date; 16 good years. I think it is enough and I am happy, help me to thank God for that.
“I will continue to thank Nigerians for giving me that privilege. I became a deputy governor because Bayelsans voted for me and my governor then. I became a Vice President because Nigerians voted for Yar’Adua and myself.
“I continued in 2011 because Nigerians voted for me and Architect Namadi Sambo. I have to thank all Nigerians. Wherever I will be, I will remain grateful to this great country. Today is a glorious day for me.”
The belief in soul mate is reinforced by a belief in preordained marriage partner. Your pastor says your husband is on the way and you should hold out steadfastly cos you will meet him/her someday. When he comes he will stay and never let go. That even your nags would sound like Natalie Maria Cole's ballad to his ears. He won't make a face about your poor culinary skills, even your snoring would be a great lullaby for sleeping. Such perfect unions are often written and read in novels.
Can anyone complement you perfectly?
Psychologists state that the belief that a soul mate exist is an unrealistic expectation. No snowflakes are exactly alike. No two persons are exactly alike or are perfectly-complementary in every way. Everyone is different, only with their uniqueness and individual differences they can be able to make a good match with other people. Your strength offsets the weakness in your partner and vice versa.
Great relationships are achieved and worked out, they are not something we chance upon. You have to work towards it. It is like trying to keep fit physically, you need to exercise and maintain a fitness regimen. Building a stable relationship requires being realistic, appreciating each other, and also seeing disagreements as an invitation to reach agreement on differing individual standpoints not as an incompatibility pointer.
Don't let the soul mate fallacy lead you to miss out on the opportunity of building a strong relationship just because you are hoping that someday you will meet that special person who will be your "twin lover". Soul mates are to be made not to be found. You can start from yourself.
The nun had been teaching at a school in the town of Kysucke Nove Mesto in northern Slovakia when she told unsuspecting pupil Adam Celko, 7, to come to the front of the class.
She then took a needle out of her handbag and rammed it into the boy’s hand in front of the horrified class, telling him that this was how Jesus suffered - and he would too if he behaved badly.
The boy’s outraged mum Helena, 30, said: "When Adam got home he had a wound on the back of his hand and when I asked him what had happened he told me the nun had done it.
"I was completely shocked. I mean, what on earth was she thinking?
Local priest Peter Holbicka said: "The Sister in question has been removed from the school and I shall be taking the matter up with her personally."
You can determine what drives you more. You can be in charge of your emotions and channel them to positive ends. Believe me emotional energy is the most potent. It directly and indirectly influences other bodily, sensual and psychological functions. Having that in mind, you need to be master of yourself, your actions and reactions by activating your screening mechanisms. You need to scrutinize every information that flows to the subconscious. Be careful how you digest the news you hear, the articles you read, the candid advice that people offers you and the public opinions. All these shape your thought in a subtle profound way much more than you are ready to admit or even aware of.
Your spirit can be dampened by a negative talk from a relative or by a gloomy report from an economic analyst, but the good news is you can dispel and neutralize its damaging effect by feeding yourself with positive talks. Block every port of negative emotions and thoughts in your system. Don't dwell much on depressing thoughts, news or words. They will slow you down.
You ought to be internally-driven! People can motivate you, inspire you but the downside is being overly dependent on motivation from other people would cause you frustration and self-doubt if they withdraw their moral support. Besides, everybody is too engrossed in their own lives to care about what's going on in somebody's else's life. You got to be your own motivator! Enough said!
Extreme passion can manifest in three ways:
Desperation is an emotional push. A desperate person loses ability to internally evaluate situations, or even contemplate actions critically before before taking a plunge. Desperation emanates from a strong inclination to accomplish a particular task or attain some status or position. It is often egotistically driven. Here, one can't separate self from his ambition. Such fusion of self and the goal of pursuit makes a desperate person to care less about morality, ethics, personal safety, since he/she has reduced his essence and worth to the attainment of a set goal or position. A desperate person feels he is doomed if he fails to achieve what he/she sets out to accomplish.
Celebrate this Easter with a heart filled with love and peace. Have a blessed and wonderful Easter!
I greet you all, especially our Christian brothers and sisters, as we celebrate Easter in commemoration of the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
For Christians all over the world, the major lessons of Easter, which we celebrate this year in the midst of general elections in our nation, are to be found in the Messiah’s Divine love and glorious self-sacrifice for the redemption of mankind.
This year’s celebration of Easter is taking place at a period of very critical national choices and decisions, during which we must all be prepared and willing to make sacrifices for greater unity, peace, political stability and progress in our beloved country.
We must therefore seize the opportunity of the Easter holiday to reflect deeply on what more we need to do as a people, to ensure that the political process in which we are currently engaged is successfully concluded and that our beloved country, Nigeria continues to move towards a better future for all of its citizens.
Happily, we have already successfully scaled the hurdle of the Presidential and National Assembly Elections. I am quite hopeful that the Gubernatorial and State Assembly elections will also be conducted peacefully.
To the glory and pride of our fatherland, our collective actions since March 28 have assured the world that the democratic spirit is alive and well in our nation.
By the grace of God, our beloved nation, Nigeria is moving forward despite all challenges.
Let us all pray this Easter, that God Almighty who has brought us this far, will continue to bless our nation as we march onward towards the fulfillment of our collective vision of a truly united, strong and prosperous nation.
I wish you all very happy Easter celebrations.
Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR
Federal Republic of Nigeria
“I can never regret anything I do. I stood for what I believe in, not because of financial gain. At the end of the day, the victory goes to Nigeria. This election showed true democracy and I am proud of the man that I supported. He is a hero. He conceded graciously and that is the trait of a true leader. This is democracy and nobody should work against me because I supported Jonathan.”
“It is just that I want to use the opportunity to celebrate President Goodluck Jonathan for his uprightness. If a man that has been tagged as weak and clueless demonstrated something we thought was almost impossible in Nigeria, I eternally want to celebrate him. I will never regret campaigning for Jonathan and if this election is done again, I will still campaign for him. Why would I regret supporting him? I was not coerced or bribed into it. I was not given money, I was convinced and I still stand by my conviction. If that would make me face the international court, I am ready to face it. While supporting Jonathan, I did not kill anybody; I was only using the word of mouth to convince people.”
“I stood for what I believed in and if I had the opportunity, I would do it all over again. I do not ever regret campaigning for Jonathan. If I believed in Buhari, I would have done the same thing. I wish him all the best and hope he would take the country to a better place. It is no longer about Buhari or Goodluck but about Nigeria.Fidelis Duker,
“I am not a card carrying member of PDP; I supported the President because I believed he has done well for my industry and Nigeria as a whole. I am a Nigerian and I have every right to the freedom of expression. Being silent would be foolhardy on my part. In 2011, I was campaigning for Fashola, why was I not silent at that time? We are all Nigerians and I don’t think Buhari would victimise me because I supported Jonathan.”
“I can never regret supporting President Goodluck Jonathan. When he is having a welcome party at Otuoke, I will be there with him. He has done very well and I am still very proud of him. It has never happened in the history of Nigeria where an incumbent will lose and he will walk away.”
