Get Rid Of The Passion Of The Love For Mobile Phones And Dangers We Often Ignore For Good

Expensive mobile phone

Luxury mobile phones often give us worries when they get missing

As the world, environment, life, and society rapidly change the creation of technology also changes, bombarding us with amenities of luxury and comfort of life in the fields of science, industrial arts, engineering, and electronics.

The humpback television many are using is gradually fading away giving room to what is now known as flat screens. Above all, to make communication easier, facilitate and enhance the business world, mobile or cell phones have become a very important part of our daily lives today.

In the city, at airports, shopping centers, and mobile phone shops, the sight of beautifully designed multi-brands of phones act like a powerful magnet pulling us into the shops either to feed our curiosity or forced us to change our phones, even though you are using one of the best phones in the world.

In today’s society, it is very difficult to live without a cell phone as most of our work is done using cell phones. Cell phones have made life simple, traveling and  communication in business easier, through text messages, browsing the internet, reading the weather and e-mail.

However, it seems our passion many times takes possession of our heart and steals our mind and concentration. Many often ignore the idiom ‘Cut your coat according to your cloth.’ They often buy expensive cell phones. Just imagine losing a phone that costs 850 between 1500 Euros. This can give you sleepless nights for over a month.

Due to often stealing and loss of cell phones new security measures are being introduced to trace a lost cell phones but not every lost phone is recovered because some are experts in decoding and changing built in security codes for the ‘new owner.’

Another sad part of the passion of cell phones is losing concentration when engaged. Not too long in Antwerp, a woman whose mobile phone has stolen her concentration was killed by a passing tram. This could easily be avoided. Many carelessly ignore the dangers surrounding them when actively engaged.

You often see them, texting and driving at the same time. I have seen many especially, teen girls on bicycle texting. The birth of technology doesn’t only help to make life easier and beautiful but also demands safety and carefulness to enjoy them for a very long time.

The I-Threes: The Golden Voices Behind Bob Marley

RIT 2Rita Marley, Judy Mowatt and Marcia Griffiths

Music is like my passport and water I need daily when travelling. I can’t do without it because it gives me inspiration. It’s great to have musicians and players of instruments around us. Music fills the courts of heaven as heavenly beings praise our Lord and Creator. When God created the world, the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy, that’s what the Bible says at (Job 38:7)

Music fills the courts of heaven as heavenly beings praise our Lord and Creator. When God created the world, the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy, that’s what the Bible says at (Job 38:7)

You will know the I-THREES if you love music because they were highly talented musicians supporting Bob Marley as back vocals, in the history of Jamaican music. Rita Marley, Judy Mowatt and Marcia Griffiths, knew each other long before they became internationally known.

Marcia Griffiths was already a star before the group I-Threes were formed. Her duet recordings with Bob Andy, which included “Young, Gifted and Black,” had brought her international attention, when she invited Judy Mowatt, who had previously sung with ‘The Gaylettes,’ and Rita Anderson, to support her on a recording with Andy. This invitation brought the three women together.

In Jamaica, that time was ‘The Wailers’ formed in 1963, which was a vocal group consisting of Junior Braithwaite, Beverley Kelso, Bunny Livingston, Bob Marley, Peter McIntosh, and Cherry Smith. Livingston later became Bunny Wailer and McIntosh simply Peter Tosh. In 1966, Braithwaite, Kelso, and Smith left the group leaving the trio of Livingston, Marley, and McIntosh.

Shortly after the departure of McIntosh and Livingston from the group, Bob Marley asked the three women to sing on his recording, Jah Live. They continued to sing for Bob Marley as back vocals for the next ten years. Later Bob Marley married Rita Andersen, whose original country of birth was Cuba. Surprisingly, both Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh became successful in their solo careers.

In early 1975, the I-Threes joined Marley for a tour as opening act for ‘The Jackson Five.’ The I-Threes continued to sing with Bob Marley until and after his death. But that wasn’t the end of the careers of the women, the three pursued a successful solo career.

On May 26, 2009, the I-Threes performed with Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespear, the Compass Point All Stars and celebrated Island Records’ 50th-anniversary in London at Shepherd Bush Empire. The message of The I-Threes is one love, hope, peace and unity to all mankind.

Air On Planes Confirmed As ‘Toxic’ And ‘Dangerous’ To Human Health

PlanePosted on February 24, 2016 by Sean Adl-Tabatabai in News

A new study has revealed that airline passengers and cabin crew could be breathing in toxic and potentially deadly fumes while travelling on airplanes. 

German scientists say they have found dangerous chemicals and volatile compounds from burning aircraft fuel in the blood samples taken from people aboard planes.

The chemicals, known as organophosphates, form the basis of many insecticides, herbicides, and nerve agents.

Dailymail.co.uk reports:

Most aircraft recycle around half of the air inside the cabin while other air is drawn in through the engines – often without passing through filters.

Known as ‘fume events’, sickness in passengers and aircrew have been recorded since the 1950s.

One such event was implicated in the death of a British Airways co-pilot Richard Westgate, who died in 2012 after suffering a condition called aerotoxic syndrome.

The 43-year-old had complained of suffering from persistent headaches, nausea and chronic fatigue and he claimed this was caused by fumes in the cockpit.

A study conducted following his death found that air in cockpits was being contaminated by contained organophosphates and other chemicals.

Now a new study by scientists at the University of Göttingen, which has still to be published, suggests the problem may be widespread.

The researchers tested 140 patients who reported symptoms of aerotoxic syndrome and found traces of organophosphates and volatile organic compounds in their blood.

Dr Astrid Heutelbeck, who led the research, told German newspaper The Local: ‘These are all substances that are forbidden in consumer products.’

Organophosphates, however, are known to circulate widely in the environment as they are used in many pesticides.

This means the general public can often be exposed to these chemicals by eating fruit or vegetables without washing them first.

Some organophosphates are also used for treating lice in fish farming and there are fears the chemicals can accumulate in the bodies of marine animals.

Historically, organophosphates were also used in nerve agents for chemical weapons.

It is thought they may get into aircrafts from fuel leaks from the engine into the air supply.

According to the UK’s department of transport, fume events occur on roughly 0.05 per cent of flights.

Research conducted by Cranfield University for the Department of Transport in 2011 showed 95 per cent of aircraft cabin samples had no detectable amounts of two organophosphates called TCP and TOCP.

It did find low levels of an organophosphate called TBP, which is an element in aircraft hydraulic fluid, but the levels were 1,000 times smaller than the exposure limits set by health authorities.

New airliners, such as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, are now being designed to avoid the use of ‘bleed air’ from the engines.

A 2013 report published by Professor Michael Bagshaw, a specialist in aviation medicine at Kings College London, also noted: ‘The amounts of organophosphates to which aircraft crew members could be exposed, even over multiple, long-term exposures, are insufficient to produce neurotoxicity.’

However, the new study is likely to raise fresh concerns and lead to calls for a full epidemiological study being conducted to assess the risk to passengers and aircrew.

Do You Experience God’s Miracle In Your Life?

Genesis 2I grew up in a family that strongly believes in God. At the corner of my parents’ bed room, stands a small table covered with a white cloth. On this table, lies the Holy Bible, which belongs to my mother. She wakes up early in the morning to pray without ceasing. Sometimes I see her shedding tears in her prayers, when she feels her prayers had been answered or touched spiritually.

Life, to many is sex, enjoyment, doing drugs, rock and roll, then after, you say good bye to your friends, when it’s time to go and sleep peacefully or tormented in your grave. That’s not the meaning of life. Life has a significant meaning or purpose. Watching my mother, each morning, behind the small table, I developed certain interest in seeking the face of God and started following her footsteps.

I read my Bible daily, and tried my best to live to the principle the holy book teaches. Like everyone, I wasn’t perfect, I did many things which I shouldn’t do as a child, but not in my adult hood. As I begin to mature, I started experiencing the miracle of God’s hand in my life. There are times I joke about it saying: Death doesn’t like ugly people, the reason I’m still living.

I was once carried away by the sea, because I couldn’t swim. Like Jonah in the belly of the whale and brought to the shores of Nineveh, after people gave up to save me, they watched as a mighty wave brought me ashore. The impact was heavy and the state of shock I find myself in at that moment, prevented me to put on my clothes. I walked home naked. Till now I’m scared of the sea and can’t swim.

I was once crossing a busy street in Africa, after watching both sides of the road, I felt secured to cross, but from nowhere I was caught up in the middle of the road, when a taxi hits me. Like a superman, I find my body in the mid-air, landing on top of the vehicle’s bonnet. The impact severely damaged the bonnet, but I survived.

In Africa, I was travelling on a mini-bus with other passengers. It was a very sunny day. I think the pressure in the vehicle’s Tyre warmed up to certain degrees Celsius, thus; one of the front Tyre’s exploded. The vehicle somersaulted continuously and finally landed on its side. I jumped out from the front seat without a scratch, when many were rushed to the hospital with injuries.

In Lagos State, Nigeria, I was kidnapped by armed robbers in military uniform. It was a swift action which took me by surprise. I was holding a small hand bag which attracted them. They thought probably the bag has over a million dollars. In the rear of the car, I struggled with them and wouldn’t let the bag go, while the butt of the rifles they were holding rain on every part of my body, including my head.

After every attempt failed, they pushed me from the vehicle while in motion and I landed on the ground with a force, like a bag of salt. I stood up, brushed the dust off my body and walked home. But the scars of the beating I had, can still be traced on my body today, after three decades.

In Amsterdam, I was nearly killed by a woman while on my bicycle. I fell and rolled ahead, while her front Tyre were on my bicycle. According to her, the sun partially blinded her, so she didn’t see me. I had bruises all over my body. She carried my badly damaged bicycle to a repairers’ shop and paid for the cost. Anxious to know of my condition, she called me the next day. I told her I’m doing well. That was the last time she called.

In Antwerp, Belgium, after holidays in Africa, I came back penniless with bills to pay. There was a particular one I needed time to pay 110 Euros at my son’s secondary school. That was a second letter reminding me, thus; the third letter wouldn’t be good for me. The end of the month to get my salary was still far, thus; the situation was actually disturbing.

It was winter and very dark, on my way to work, I spotted something like a folded money on the bicycle lane. I stopped and walked back to see if it’s money or mind is just playing tricks on me. Behold, it was money. I took it and unfolded it. Guess how much? Two fifty Euro notes, one ten Euro note and one five Euro note, a total of 115 Euros.

After work, I quickly went home to pay the 110 Euros to the school and used the five Euros to buy some few thing I needed most. There is no need to doubt over these stories, because they came from Joel Savage, the writer who loves non-fiction articles and books. Have you ever experienced the miracle of God’s hand in your life?

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Said Jesus at Matthew 7:7. Just as sports is good for the body, reading the Bible is good for the mind and your spiritual being.
