How To Be A Celebrity When You Are Not: Your Personal Appearance Influence How Others View You

Dressed 3

Just as homes have straight forward stories to tell about people’s behavior and the sort of environment they grew up, the same way our personal appearance says much about us. In the first place, why is it necessary to be clean, neat and be modest in clothing? Being naturally clean person and hygienic conscious conclude that you have self-respect.

There are certain important things we need to do daily in our lives that can’t be ignored. Even though due to poverty, health and other life problems, many have lost the control and ability to take proper care of themselves. It is very common and part of our everyday life to see ladies and gentlemen in town and offices, but they dress very shabby. Some of the dressings are so bad that you may wonder if they have mirrors at home.

Others put on the most magnificent perfume to add program to their personalities, but by chance if some of these glamorous workers invite you to their homes, you may not like to go to the house again if given second invitation, because of the the poor organization and filth in the house.

If you take a wider view of things, you can discover that dating and friendships seem to be disappointments. Many are hurt or recovering from love affair disasters. Why must my date end in this way? This is one of the questions that usually follow. Many times it may be differences of opinions, careers and misunderstandings but at times it may turn out to be that the partners don’t like something about each other, especially about his or her home, body or clothes.

Keeping the body clean and modestly dressed are very important. One that works at the office’ clothes shouldn’t be the same like a clown who entertains at the circus. Have you ever heard someone telling another person “Repair your shoes, for they talk about you?” If the heels of your shoes are completely worn out, every step you make attracts people to look at you, because the rhythm of the footsteps is unusual. Imagine if you haven’t polished your shoes over a year, how will they look like?

Cleanliness is next to Godliness they say, apart from good health and the creation of healthy environment, good personal appearance attracts people to view you as outstanding among others. The good news is you look like a celebrity in the eyes of onlookers but the bad news is you may get many date invitations, which you may not feel comfortable with it, because your heart belongs to only one person. However, count yourself a lucky person when you attract than repel.

Child Soldiers: Children Who Don’t Know What Classroom And Education Are

Child soldier 4

Young boys are often lured by some African leaders to fight for ‘freedom’

Third World Countries are plagued by crisis. Among the most critical is poverty, which has taken hundreds of children out of the classroom. Children are the world’s greatest resource, future leaders, and assets to national development, thus; it is, therefore the right of every child to be educated; unfortunately, worldwide many children aren’t aware of what education is, instead serving as slaves under child labour and serving as child soldiers in fields and wars.

As a child growing up in Africa, I find myself in an environment witnessing how many parents struggle to educate their children. Every weekend, I go hawking as a trader with banana, eggs, and bread, just to make some extra money to help my parents to keep me in the classroom. In the early hours of the morning a friend of mine sells newspapers as a vendor, before coming to school at 8 A.M. Despite the global assistance and benefits from advanced countries, many children in poor countries have no access to education.

There are no words to describe the plight of children roaming the streets in Africa, Asia, and South America, due to poverty. In the rural areas, imagine a school without a roof, as children sit and learn under shady trees. Imagine a child who carries his table and chair to learn and after school carries them back home. The classrooms haven’t any tables and chairs thus; the parents struggling to educate their children must provide those tables and chairs, with difficulties sometimes of buying textbooks.

Poverty hasn’t only taken children out of school but has also brought misery, sickness and exposing them as prey to physical or sexual abuse, having a devastating impact on families and communities. Due to poverty parents engage children in child labor, in order to improve their chances of attaining basic necessities. Extreme poverty statistics in parts of Africa, Asia, and Latin America has pushed many children there to become child laborers.

How the European Union is making a difference in Somalia

World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, once told a Georgetown University student that he experienced racism as a young Asian-American growing up in Iowa, but that he learned the true meaning of his identity when he began working to end poverty in Haiti, one of the world’s poorest nations. The stride to end or alleviate poverty is a costly and long-term process; it has therefore become illusion than a reality and also loan was given to poor countries to fight poverty, often lands in the pocket of corrupt government officials. However, many foreign agencies, foundations and private associations are supporting and financing educational projects in Africa.

In Somalia, the European Union and its member states are collectively the largest donors in its educational development. The country has the weakest educational structure in the world and will not achieve any of the Millennium Development Goals on education by 2015. The European Union support focuses on creating primary and secondary education opportunities, vocational training and boosting employment.

The United Kingdom as part of the donors assisting Somalia launched Girls Education Challenge, worth £21.3 million to get girls into school and ensure that they receive the quality education and the new government-run program called Go2School  to give a free elementary school education, has been successful putting  at least 1 million children into the classroom.

Could Poor Drainage System Leads To Flood And Fire Disaster In Ghana?

Fire 3

Gas explosion in the city of Accra: Wednesday, June 3, 2015.

Ghana is mourning once again, after the Melcom shopping mall disaster in 2012. Without warning tragedy has struck. “This loss of life is catastrophic and almost unprecedented. A lot of people have lost their lives and I am lost for word.” These are the comments of Ghana’s President John Dramani Mahama, while visiting the scene of the blast, following a heavy torrential rainfall in the city of Accra.

During a heavy rainfall, people taking shelter from the rain at a gas station, unexpectedly find themselves engulfed by fire, following an explosion. According to eyewitness, the the strong blazing fire burnt everyone across its path. The Red Cross and emergency services retrieved dozens of bodies from the gas station in central Accra, where the fire occurred on Wednesday night, at about 10 pm.

Waste disposal, recycling and poor drainage systems, remain a key challenge facing many African countries, including Ghana. It’s not arguably that many cities in Africa are extremely dirty with garbage-choked drains, gutters and blockage of sewage pipes. Indiscriminately disposal of wastes such as plastic and polythene plastic and uncollected waste blocked holes and gutters brewing bad odour that engulfs the environment.

Apart from malaria and other tropical diseases, poor drainage system often leads to common floods, leading to death and destruction of properties. In the past, Ghana’s capital and its surroundings have experienced heavy rain and flooding, often causing mass destruction and taking lives. The question: How can the Ghanaian government prevent such tragedies?

It is always easier said than done, but there wouldn’t be any success or failure if one doesn’t try to do something. The Ghanaian government should consider embarking on a good waste disposal and underground drainage facilities. Ghana deserves it as a great nation, years after independence.

How Bill Gates’ Statement Exposes Ebola As A Created Disease

Bill Gates

“We’ve created, in terms of spread, the most dangerous environment that we’ve ever had in the history of mankind,”-  Gates tells Vox.  Can any intelligent person or the media gather evidence from this statement made by the 59 years old successful businessman? Like always, the aim of the media today is to misinform, to manipulate, twist and hide facts from the public over diseases just to keep their jobs to feed their families.

Showing concern over a possible outbreak of a disease in the next few decades, Bill Gates said “I rate the chance of a nuclear war within my lifetime as being fairly low. I rate the chance of a widespread epidemic, far worse than Ebola, in my lifetime, as well over 50%.” “It’s especially terrifying, given the way we reacted to the last epidemic: The Ebola outbreak of last year showed how unready the world is for dealing with infectious disease.”

“The last widespread killer epidemic was the Spanish Flu. Between 1918 and 1919, it killed between 20 million and 40 million people worldwide — more than World War I. What’s even more frightening, Gates says, is that we don’t even know where the Spanish Flu came from, it was just called the “Spanish Flu” because the press in Spain were the first to report on it.”

The need for Bill Gates to be worried is necessary. I quote: We don’t know where the Spanish Flu came from, it was just called “The Spanish Flu” because the press in Spain were the first to report on it. But certainly Bill Gates knew where Ebola came from, because the virus was created by America, Russia and Germany for biological warfare purpose, long before it exploded in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Congo and Guinea.

I wasn’t surprised at all when the business tycoon ended his talks with Vox, saying  “We’ve created, in terms of spread, the most dangerous environment that we’ve ever had in the history of mankind.” Let World Leaders and America continue to fool the people, but they can’t continue fooling the people all the time. Over the truth of Aids and Ebola, time will tell.

 

Lassa Fever: “The Virus Exists In Laboratory Since 1930’S, Before Discovery In Nigeria 1969”- Says Prof. Johan Van Dongen

By Johan Van Dongen and Joel Savage

Lassa fever medical crime

Lassa Fever is another medical bioweapon against Africa

 

Lassa fever, an arenavirus is an acute viral illness that typically occurs in blacks in West Africa. The illness was discovered in 1969, when two missionary nurses died in Nigeria, according to the CDC, but how can Africa trust the Center for Diseases Control, when in collaboration with America, World Health Organization and Europe, responsible for the Aids and Ebola crimes?

“Because the clinical course of the disease is so variable, detection of the disease in affected patient is very difficult, that’s why it can be used as a biological warfare agent.”- Prof. Johan Van Dongen

History of Lassa Fever

There are seven deadly diseases of concern; the three most unpredictable are Lassa fever, Marburg virus disease and Ebola virus disease. In this article the epidemiological and bio-warfare aspects of these diseases are discussed, with particular emphasis on exportation from their indigenous areas in Africa and on the occurrence of secondary cases.

Any of these diseases for instance could be brought into Canada or the United States of America, inadvertently or by aeromedical evacuation.Between 1972 and 1978, there were seven occasions when Canada could have been involved with handling cases of Lassa fever.

The Government of Canada purchased several bed and transit isolators. The units with filtered air under negative pressure, accommodated the infectious and patients were transported and cared for without any health hazard to the attendants or the environment.

The plaque reduction neutralization test (PRNT) has been used routinely in serological studies with such arena viruses

These plaque reduction neutralization tests (PRNT) were used in the forties of the last century, long time before the first outbreak in 1969, in Lassa, Nigeria, in order to look for a biological warfare product.

The first scientific publication about the Lassa virus was written by C. Armstrong in 1934, as “Experimental lymphotropicchorio meningitis of monkeys and mice produced by a Lassa virus encountered in studies of the 1933 St. Louis Encephalitis Epidemic, Public Health Rep. 49: 1019 -1027 (1934).”

Nowadays Lassa fever is an acute and sometimes severe viral hemorrhagic illness endemic in West Africa. One important question regarding Lassa fever is the duration of immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody after infection. We were able to locate three people who worked in Nigeria dating back to the 1940s, two of whom were integrally involved in the early outbreaks and investigations of Lassa fever in the late 1960s, including the person who was isolated from Lassa virus. Two people had high titers of Lassa virus-specific IgG antibody over 40 years after infection, indicating the potential long-term duration of these antibodies. One person was likely infected in 1952, 17 years before the first recognized outbreak.

Background of Lassa virus

Though first described in 1934 and later in the 1940s and 1950s, the virus causing Lassa disease was not publicly identified until 1969. The virus is a single-stranded RNA virus belonging to the virus family Arenaviridae. About 80% of people who became infected with Lassa virus have no symptoms. One in five infected of the disease is very severe, where the virus affects several organs such as the liver, spleen and kidneys.

It is said that normally Lassa fever is a zoonotic disease, meaning humans can become infected when in contact with infected animals. The animal reservoir, or host, of Lassa virus is a rodent of the genus Mastomys, commonly known as the “immaculate rat.” Mastomys rats infected with Lassa virus do not become ill, but they can shed the virus in their urine and faeces. But the rats were infected by scientists, such as Cooper in 1961, and many others in laboratory and later set free in the the environment, for example in Lassa, Nigeria, to prey on humans, in order to see the effects or find the result.

Because the clinical course of the disease is so variable, detection of the disease in affected patients is very difficult, that’s why it can be used as a biological warfare agent. However, when presence of the disease is confirmed in a community, prompt isolation of affected patients, good infection protection and control practices and rigorous contact tracing can stop outbreaks.

Lassa fever or Lassa hemorrhagic fever (LHF) is an acute viral hemorrhagic fever caused by the Lassa virus and first described in 1969 in the town of Lassa, in Borno State, Nigeria. Lassa fever is a member of the Arena viridae virus family, similar to Ebola clinical cases. The disease had been known for over a decade but had not been connected with a viral pathogen. The infection is endemic in West African countries, resulting in 300,000 -500,000 cases annually, causing approximately 5,000 deaths each year. Outbreaks of the disease have been observed in Nigeria, Liberia, Sierra leone, Guinea and the Central African Republic.

The Lassa virus plaque assay satisfied the criteria proposed by Cooper in 1961 for determining satisfactory plaque technique

The plaque reduction neutralization test (PRNT) has been used routinely in serological studies with such arena viruses as Junin, Machupo, and Parana. However, difficulties have been encountered in using the PRNT for LCM virus, while conflicting views have been expressed about the reliability and efficacy of the test with Lassa virus.

 

Lassa fever medical crime

Johan Van Dongen is a Dutch scientist who revealed that Aids and Ebola were bio-weapons against Africa by America

“I don’t want a name for myself, but I will not allow CDC to continue fooling the world”- Prof J. van Dongen.

They therefore investigated and evaluated the plaque assay for Lassa virus. In addition, the suitability of the PRNT for determining the potency of a serum and its efficacy in passive immunization for the treatment of Lassa fever was also investigated. The Lassa virus plaque assay satisfied the criteria proposed by Cooper in 1961, for determining satisfactory plaque technique. Lassa virus plaques appear within 3 days of inoculating Vero cell cultures.

By day 5, the plaques are clearly defined, discrete, and measure 1.5 to 2.0 mm. In the plaque reduction neutralization test, the use of native non-inactivated serum was required for a reliable and reproducible determination of serum antibody titer. The potency and suitability of a serum for Lassa fever serotherapy was determined by the use of a constant serum-varying virus (CS-VV) and/or a constant virus-varying serum (CV-VS) PRN technique.

Questions for readers to ask Center for Diseases Control

How is it possible that the Lassa virus which is known in the thirties, forties and fifties in laboratory circumstances, the first official outbreak occurred in 1969, in Lassa Nigeria? CDC can fool the public or the world that the disease was first discovered in Nigeria, 1969, but they can’t fool Johan Van Dongen.

This finding is similar to the first outbreaks of the Marburg virus in 1967, in Germany and the Ebola virus in 1976, in Africa as described in: “Aids and Ebola the greatest crime in medical history against mankind” amazon.com.
