In The Zone

Yup yup! I am in the Blogging Zone right now, better enjoy it while it lasts. Naija to the Core means Naija-related stuff so:

The Mag - MADE MEN (

Started by young Nigerian Entrepreneurs, Made Men Magazine is a Lifestyle Magazine for African men. In particular, I believe it is the first Nigerian Mag for men so there you go! We can't keep True Loving and Genevieving when the guys have nothing to read, then we complain they are always out, maybe this'll keep 'em at home (yeah, okay..) hehe.

Their Recent News says:

"Made Launched with 5000 copies on sunday 3rd june.The 1st issue is the entertainment issue. The 2nd issue is the Fashion issue.Who do you want to see on the cover??From the 6th June 2007 Made Mag.will be available on Virgin Nigeira business class seats,its available via subscription on the net & the magazine,its also available at all outlets from Nu metro Palms and Silverbird to hotels bookshops etc."

Anywhoo, it looks really glossy and classy and fab. Check out the site - you gotta love it!

The Idea - Miss Plus Size Africa Pageant '07 (

AH, well I don't know how innovative this is since Africa is filled with voluptous women, but before you throw stones at me, I got this from Bella Naija's blog. Sounds great though.....

The Petition - McDonald's McJob (

Okay, this has been going on in the news for a bit now and I chose to ignore it but this now just takes the absolute biscuit! McDonald's wants the definition of a McJob (in the Oxford English dictionary) to be changed......or lifted. Right now, it's defined as "an unstimulating, low-paid job with few prospects, esp. one created by the expansion of the service sector.”

LOL (no *ish) whilst on the other hand, McDonald's has won several awards and been described as one of .........wait for it:

1) The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers 2006
2) Financial Times Best Workplaces UK 2007

3) Best Place To Work in Hospitality Award 2007
4) Working Families Employer Award 2006
5) Britain's Top Employers 2007
6) The Times Top 50 Where Women Want To Work 2006

Rrrrright, so this is sort of a big deal then. What do you think? Here is the petition - changethedefinition dot com you decide.
