According to Egypt Independent,  a law has been drafted banning the use of 'foreign names' (Western names), such as 'Mark','Sam', 'Lara'. This was introduced by MP Beider Abdel Aziz and it was discussed by his country's parliament yesterday.

He said, "The fine should be between LE1,000- LE5,000 ($60-$300) and the sentence should be six months at the most.

He claimed, "Using western names and abandoning Arabic ones will lead to an undesired and radical change in our society and culture, our sons will no longer be connected to their true identity.

He also added that western names are difficult to pronounce for other Arabs.

The draft law has caused so many outrages among social media users who have expressed their condemnation, citing it as a trivial issue that the Parliament shouldn't discuss.\

Windows 10S operating system is designed to only run Windows Store apps which is going to be a problem for most Windows user, hence a need for an upgrade to the full Windows Pro version.

Computers priced at $799 or above, schools, and accessibility users, will get a free upgrade until the end of the year.
Those that are not in the category above will pay $49 for an upgrade, which is processed through the windows store.
Here is how to upgrade from Windows 10S to WindowsPro;


  • Download a desktop app to trigger the switch: When you download an app outside the windows store and attempt to install, a dialogue box will be seen which explains the restricted OS, and offer you a way out. Microsoft plans to customise this per app in the future, so as  to give the oppurtunity to download the app from there. Right now, the only difference you will see is between the dialogue boxes, is if you attempt to install another browser as microsoft tempts you back to its edge browser instead. Follow the "see how" link at the bottom of the dialogue box, where it says, "still want to intall aps from outside the store?"

  • Windows store will open through the link to a new age that offers to switch to Windows 10 Pro, and offer a comparison between between Windows 10S and 10 Pro.  If you need to pay the $49 fee, you can do that, if not, you will see a free upgrade button. Make sure you backup your files before you switch to Windows 10pro, because the process is irreversible. To avoid a $49 fee, you can manually enter your own Windows 10 Pro key, or simply proceed by clicking the ugrade button.

  • Windows 10 will then ask if you’ve saved all your files, and then prepare to switch the PC over to Windows 10 Pro. Less than a minute is required for the switch to take place, and then the system will reboot and you’ll be immediately converted to Windows 10 Pro. All apps and settings will remain, and a notification will inform you that the switch has been successful. At this point you can proceed to install regular Windows desktop apps from outside the Windows Store just like any other regular Windows 10 PC.

Our attention has been drawn to false and fraudulent reports circulating especially in the Social Media that new N-Power applications are now being received on the N-Power portal.

Beneficiaries and potential beneficiaries of the N-Power Volunteer Corps should ignore such reports emanating from fake sources and outlets and only relate with bonafide presidency and FG sources and web portals (http://npvn.npower.gov.ng, http://npower.gov.ng).

Any information that does not emanate from this identified sources or directly from the Presidency should be simply and outrightly dismissed.

Date for commencement of the next batch of volunteers for the N-Power program will be announced on http://npvn.npower.gov.ng and http://npower.gov.ng.
