ASPIRE: HEREIN LIES THE FORMULA

ASPIRE: HEREIN LIES THE FORMULA
Just like a hopeful soul,
looking into the deep scroll
out of which reveals many secrets.
One thing emerges bit by bit
placing you among many candidates
You know you’ve got to strive to get that prize. IMG-20180507-WA0012

Truth is like oil,
no matter the amount of water you pour on it,
it will always float.
Be inspired to aspire
as a lofty aspirant
and be not ignorant.
You know the truth is bitter,
But you’ve got to accept it. IMG-20180507-WA0013

The good, the bad and the ugly
Craving to know the real truth
Ambitious yet lazy –
not an option to bank on, missy.
Your dream awaits your potentials;
No doubt, but what have you to offer?
To unveil the secrets, you’ve got to be prepared
It ain’t just about your desire but your hard work. IMG-20180507-WA0011

COOKING OILS: THE FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW

Oil has been on the world stage for a long time coming. The myths surrounding it are also just as old as oil itself. This article aims to debunk most of these myths and help consumers make right and healthy choices as regards cooking oil. I think the myths kept lingering on because people misinterpreted the studies and articles that were being published. For us to be sure that a research is true, a Randomized Control Trial (RCT) must be done to establish the fact. images (5)For example, a research was carried out to establish a relationship between Trans-fat and atherosclerosis. If the research was a RCT, the scientist will say, for instance, Trans-fat will predispose people to atherosclerosis. If any other form of research method was employed, the scientists will say, in this case, Trans-fat may predispose people to atherosclerosis. But what people do is go on and on and misinterpret so that the populace have the wrong ideas in their head
What is even more annoying is that many people think they have the right to share their thoughts with having any form of prior knowledge or education in Human Nutrition. Botanists, accountants, lawyers, optometrists, just anyone speaking on national newspaper on what they think they know, but sadly don’t. It’s a pity, really.
Oil is made up of smaller units called triglycerides. A triglyceride is composed of one molecule of glycerol and three molecules of fatty acids. The structure of any glycerol is the same. Continue reading

I’M DONE SETTING GOALS!!!

He squalled in frustration as he dumped his files on the floor. “I’m totally done!” She yelled at him. “Oh please! Snap out of it! Are you willing to give up, just like that?”

Six out of ten people will tell you that they don’t and cannot settle for less. Now, don’t look at it as if they are proud or………… Actually, three out of that six say the same words but they don’t mean it while the other three go all the way, standing firm on their grounds. Those that don’t even give a hint or make any statement are the remaining four; for them, anything goes. People have different opinions about different situations, topics, and circumstances. When you meet a fellow that tells you that he or she does not or cannot settle for less; It could mean a thousand things. It could be related to love, family, career, finances, or anything worth the price of a settlement. Does that make sense? I mean you have to understand how important it is for a man to want to set his priorities right. Taking time to make a list of what you feel you want or what you desire to achieve.

Oops!!! BODY ODOUR Is Real.

How well do you treat your body with care? Unavoidably real. This is the unpleasant smell produced by bacteria on the skin which breaks down sweat into acids. It is referred to as bromhidrosis in medical terms. What are we talking about? BODY ODOUR.hujk.jpg

Body odour usually becomes pronounced at puberty (between 14 to 17 years) due to the development of sweat glands which produce sweat that the bacteria can act on.

Sweat is essentially odourless. It is the rapid multiplication of bacteria in the presence of sweat that leads to the breakdown of sweat-producing acids that eventually cause the unpleasant smell. indexhog.jpgBody odour is most likely to occur in our feet, groin, armpits, genitals, pubic hair, folds, and other hairy areas of the body and to a lesser extent on the rest of our skin.

Body odour can be a nice smell, specific to an individual, and can be used by animals to identify people. Everyone’s exclusive body odour can be influenced by diet, gender, health, and medication. Examples of conditions which influence body odour include:

  1. Consuming spicy foods, drinks and alcohol.
  2. It is said that men are more likely to have body odour than women because they sweat more.
  3. Being overweight or obese.
  4. Living with diabetes, hyperthyroidism or liver disease.
  5. Using medications like antidepressants.

CARE FOR BODY ODOUR

  1. Have a warm bath at least once daily paying attention to folds like the armpit. The frequency of baths can be increased during hot seasons.kl
  2. Shave your armpits regularly; do not try to keep a forest in there.
  3. Wear clothing with natural fibres such as cotton, wool and silk to increase evaporation of sweat.
  4. Limit spicy foods such as garlic and curry. These and lots of red meat have been noticed to make body odour worse.
  5. Wear clean clothes and shoes.
  6. gyhTry to let your foot wears get some air before putting them on for another long day.
  7. Use a deodorant or an antiperspirant.
  8. You can also get help from a healthcare professional.

What SHE Stands For………

Honestly, one would think that attaining such a ripe age is a bridge to fulfilment. In times like this, it is nothing compared to an accomplished dream. Truth be told, she is far away from living up to her real expectations. She is flanked by unjust bloodstreams, dysfunctional tissues and embodied with organs having a non-adaptive behaviour. guShe has become one of the biggest drawing cards to be seen by her sisters and her in-laws; now critically made jest of. However, does this genuinely define what she stands for?

With sincerity; without pretence, she was formerly regarded as a giant. A titan, in fact. In her early days, her sisters and her in-laws came to her to tap from her ability to deal resourcefully with her uncommon problems. She was in one mould. Even her sisters and in-laws depicted jealousy in their actions. She was a reserve supply that can be drawn upon when needed. Regrettably, she was emptied of her contents. Maybe not all, but to a large extent. Still, does her specifications really depend on this; a sudden smash on her life? Continue reading

SEX: DIRTY or NATURAL?

                “ Go for it! After all, you are in the prime of your life. Sex is natural. Feel it now.

                             “No, you should wait for sex until you are married. It’ll be more special.”

Yeah, you should wait, but we know you’re going to do it anyway. Grab a condom- Take a poll. Protect yourself.

Lots of people talk about sex, but what do you do if the messages contradicts each other? Parents say one thing;

School says another, TV and music says something else.

Which message should you listen to?

If sex is natural why can’t you enjoy it before you marry? If you’re supposed to wait, why do you have hormones racing around your body now? If sex is so good, why do you need protection? And why should you read inspirational books on morals if you have already had sex? Isn’t it too late?  Continue reading

ENDURANCE IN ACTION

“Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing, but to turn it into glory.”                                              —William Barclay.

fop

“Guilty as charged; sentenced to death,” so stated the jury on January 10, 2017, convicting Dylann Roof for the murders of nine members of the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston. One of the deceased, Rev. Depayne Middleton-Doctor, had a sister at the sentencing hearing who acknowledged the anger she was feeling, and speaking to Roof, added, “But one thing that Depayne always enjoined in our family…. Is she taught me that we are the family that love built. We have no room for hating, so we have to forgive. I pray God on your soul.” This incredible forgiveness testifies to the hope of the resurrected body and eternal life for forgiven saints.

Such testimonies change lives. For example, the Rev. Anthony Thompson is the husband of victim Myra Thompson, who was killed by Roof. When he was asked to speak about the tragedy at a nearby church that is predominantly white, a woman was so moved by his forgiveness of Roof that she publicly confessed her own sin of racism.

The congregation responded by giving glory to God, and other white members of the congregation stood and repented of their racism.

Practising the Christian virtue of endurance places us in the middle of God’s salvation account brought to completion in Christ, because it demonstrates in our soon-to-be-resurrected bodies that we are co-heirs with a suffering Messiah.romans-5-clipart-1

indexj

Endurance for Christ and responding to evil with good expresses a believer’s sure hope of abiding forever with our crucified – and resurrected – Lord.

The gospel message of Christ’s loving forgiveness has transformed these believers, and the promise of eternal, resurrection life has given them enduring hope. Forgiveness and endurance shape our values as believers according to God’s kingdom ethics.

≈ By Lynn H. Cohick, a Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College. 

“Nothing reflects so much honour on a workman as a trial of his work and its endurance of it. So it is with God. It honours him when His saints preserve their integrity.” – Charles Spurgeon.

“We really feel happier when things look bleak. Hope is endurance. Hope is holding on and going on and trusting in the Lord.” – Michael Novak.

Lessons about the way WE TREAT PEOPLE

1 – First Important Lesson – Pickup in the Rain.

One night, at 11:30 p.m., an older African American Woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a lashing rain storm. Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride. Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car.

A young white man stopped to help her, generally unheard of in those conflict-filled 1960’s. The man took her to safety, helped her get assistance and put her into a taxicab.

She seemed to be in a big hurry, but wrote down his address and thanked him. Seven days went by and a knock came on the man’s door. To his surprise, a Giant console colour TV was delivered to his home.
A special note was attached.

It read:

“Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes, but also my spirits. Then you came along.

Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying Husband’s bedside just before he passed away… God Bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others.”

Sincerely, Mrs. Nat King Cole.

2 ~ Second Important Lesson ~ Cleaning Lady.
During my second month of college, our professor Gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions until I read the last one:
“What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?”

Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the Cleaning woman several times. 22556074-Cleaning-lady-Stock-Vector-woman-old-cartoon.jpgShe was tall, Dark-haired and in her 50’s, but how would I know her name?

I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade.

“Absolutely, ” said the professor.. “In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant.. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do Is smile and say “hello..”

I’ve never forgotten that lesson.. I also learned her Name was Dorothy.  Continue reading
