Employers may have to discern which injuries are real and fake because many workers might file for on-the-job-injuries to collect workers’ compensation benefits.

Other workers may use a different tactic, like exaggerating a minor injury. For instance, a worker bumps his head on a machine and then fabricates symptoms, such as severe headaches and dizziness.Their initial injury might be legitimate but they claim they are still injured weeks or months after the injury has healed.

Many Nigerians will experience serious fight, bickering over TV remote at this world cup season.

Many Nigerians will don their jerseys proudly at the beginning of the match, and the act may linger if Nigeria go far in the tournament. This is the period where many Nigerians show loyalty.

Word goooooallll will rent the air:

There would be noise in all quarters during the World Cup tournament, shout of goal before and after blowing of whistle by the referee would be heard in all quarters for those who will watch the match in open bars, viewing centers.
