6 WAYS TO KEEP YOUR V*GINA ATTRACTIVE

vag9

Every women wants to have a beautiful vagina, both to feel confident and to please significant others. There are some simple steps you can take to easily improve the looks of your vagina.

1. Hair removal
The part of the genitalia where pubic hair grows is actually the vulva, not the vagina.  Nevertheless, improving the appearance of the vulva will in turn make the vagina look better.  Shaving the pubic hair is a common method women use to give their vulva a more unique appearance.  This doesn’t necessarily have to be all of it; some women shape the hair into designs, or simply trim the edges.  Waxing and laser removal are other ways to remove hair. So dear ladies trim the forest to allow free movement and fresh air after-all Bi-Laden died long ago.

2. Tightening the vagina
This is one of the steps that will please your partner in particular.  After childbirth and aging, the vagina can loosen.  There are pelvic strengthening exercises called Kegels that can give you a tight vagina.  This will look nicer and make sex more pleasurable for both of you. Just imagine you are wearing an oversize pant…yeah…that’s exactly how we feel if your kingdom is loose.

3. Improving the odor
You’ll most likely want your vagina to smell nice to match its beautiful appearance.  A bad vaginal odor can be a sign of infection, so go to your doctor and see about treatment if you think you might have one.  Poor hygiene is a possible cause as well.  Regular washing with a gentle soap will keep your vagina clean and smelling fresh.Well a personal testimony, I got this lady in bed after a 2 year hustle. Everything was okay until I had the green light to open the gates of the kingdom and OMG!……At once, my guy just dropped. That was the last day I made the lady to see me.

4. Stay free of bumps
While vaginal bumps usually aren’t a sign of something serious like an STD, they can be unpleasant to look at.  Keeping your vagina clean should take care of this problem as well, especially if the bumps are pimple-like.

5. Try Genecure 442

Genecure 442 is an organic product that natural ingredients to improve the condition of your vagina.  It cleanses, tightens, improves the smell, and many other things.  It’s really an all-around good product for general vaginal health.

6. Be confident
The most important part of having a beautiful vagina is being confident.  All vaginas look a little bit different, like faces.  Even if your vagina doesn’t look like others you might have seen, that doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with it.  As long as you’re comfortable with your body, everyone else will be too.

THE “CHACHA” IN GHANA’S EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM

CORRUPT

 

Been born in Ghana as at this era is more of a curse than a blessing; no wonder the infant mortality rate is on the rise. No public institution seems to be is working at all. From health, education, transportation, on and on the list goes. Everything in Ghana today is been sown in a political gown.

The Educational Sector is one of the key areas which is of interest to me as far as national development is concerned. For the past decade Ghana has gone through series of political policies in the educational sector, ranging from free education in the primary sector,increasing the 3 years Senior High School Duration to 4 years and the reversal to 3 years following the change of government, the conversion of polytechnics to technical universities and the recent free senior high school policy to be commenced come September 2017.

Have you thought about why and how the Polytechnics were converted to Technical Universities?

Polytechnics as per the Parliamentary Act 2007(Act 745) are mandated to provide tertiary education in the fields of manufacturing, commerce, science and technology, applied social science, applied arts and of course to provide opportunity for skills development.

Unfortunately, the core vision for establishing these Polytechnics got missing along the way as cited to be the main reason for the conversion according to the committee in charge of the transition chaired by one Dr. George Afeti. According to the 24-page report presented by the committee made up of 9 people, about 60% of the total population of all the Polytechnics across the country enrolls in Business and Management programmes although majority of the courses offered is in the Technical field. Where we are in Ghana now, everyone will agree with me that we need more of the technical skills than the intellectual skills after all majority of our past leaders did not offer us any best resource with their so call intellectual backgrounds. We can also testify that countries like Singapore and Malaysia who we all started the independence struggle at the same time is far advanced than us as a nation in terms of infrastructural development  and this is not a rocket science; they focused more on skills development than the intellectual.

So logically, if the above problem is the cause of the deviation of the core mandate of the Polytechnics, does the new policy seek to address the situation? It’s a big “NO”. The new policy still offers the Business and Managerial courses, therefore adding more yards to the problematic cloth.

Let’s have a look at this carefully; the cost of Polytechnic education in Ghana today is cheaper as compared to the Universities, therefore allowing the Polytechnics to award a First Degree will rather increase the admission into the institutions, therefore the Business and Managerial programmes will still be in a comfortable lead since the new policy did not scrap the entire Business and Managerial programmes off the institutions’ files. The report does not even seem to mention a specific quota of the Business and Managerial students to be admitted as against the regular Technical students which is a way to control the situation at least for the moment.

The committee also cited the lack of infrastructural facilities as a factor in the failure of the polytechnics.Now the question which comes to mind is that, “Are the appropriate facilities available as the conversion is on the go now”? Has the Lecturers been adequately equipped to deliver a comprehensive tuition leading to awarding of a First Degree to their students  which can meet other Universities standard   across the globe or it’s a kind of Honorary Degree to be confined on them ? With a personal check I did, none of these things are available nor has the lecturers been given any further training into preparing their students for a deserving First Degree.

Here we are again, the POLITICAL GAME!

The follow up question again is that “Is the government ready to provide the adequate funding for the new policy”? Mind you, since the policy seems to increase their status, the status of the Lecturers also goes up implying that their salaries too shoot up automatically. The report of the committee also captured that in 2014, the Polytechnics where allocated only GHC150,571,282.00 out of the requested budget of GHC325,547,304.00 leaving a funding gap of about 54% deficit.

The total population of all Polytechnic students in Ghana as at 2014 is 53,078 implying that the government spends only GHC 2,836.00 on each student. The committee prior to their recommendation of the conversion of the Polytechnics to Technical Universities, made a week’s visit to some Technical Universities and Universities of Applied Sciences in Germany and it noted that the German government spends between 5000-7200 Euros (GHc15,000.00-GHC21,000) on each student in a University of Applied Sciences  annually. The committee we t ahead to suggest that “the huge gap between the current and optimal funding levels will have to be bridged if QUALITY TRAINING in the converted Polytechnics is to be comparable to international standards”. Therefore now that the government has started the conversion process without addressing the suggestions by the committee, I expected them to come out and caution the government because it is Biblically said “It is inevitable that stumbling blocks will come, but woe to the one through whom they come”.

The sad thing is that the government officials and the committee members will enroll their relatives in universities abroad after making such deadly decisions and claim it’s in the good of the Ghanaian populist and expect us to clap for them for their good work. If the policy is the best, why then do they enroll your wards abroad? If Parliament were to be an organized institution and an avenue where they have people at heart, they would have passed a bill compelling every public official to enroll their wards in only public institutions in the country and to forbid them from enrolling them in schools abroad, in that way they will accord circumspection in formulating policies for the good people of our dear nation. But in our case they are all part of the rot. They will enroll their relatives to gain a diploma in Harvard University and you the countryman will enroll your ward in the converted Technical Universities  for a degree and when they present  their respective qualification for a vacant position in the country, they will choose his diploma over your hard earn degree, isn’t that a pity? Indeed we should note that the politicians pass these policies not for the good of it but to score for themselves a cheap political point.

In our economy currently about 80% of the total population is employed in the informal sector, therefore if the students are run through this weak system with their “confine” degrees, and there are no jobs in the economy, what then is the work done? One will ask, what the current condition of the free basic education is, well it is nothing to write home about. It is indeed free, free of knowledge. Go to my village and see, no one cares if teachers come to school or not but if their wards in the international schools in the country comes home to tell them their teacher was absent in a day, they will immediately follow up.

Someone may think that I am against the policy, but that is not the case. They policies should be implemented at the right time in the mist of the requisite resources.

I will rest my case with my advice in these 3 little proverbs below for it is said that “the wise man is spoken to in proverbs not a plain language;

You need the people on your way up the ladder because they are the same people you need on your way down.

The sheep is only deceiving himself if he thinks he is spoiling the community with his bows forgetting he is spoiling his own buttocks.

When a fetish priest prophesizes a doom for his nation, he shouldn’t forget he is also a resident of that nation.

These are my humble thoughts, you are also entitled to yours because I know sense doesn’t reside in one person’s head and together we can make Ghana a better place to live.

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“I SLEPT WITH FUNNY FACE’S WIFE”

Funny-Face-Nana-Adjoa-620x330

After holding back his words for 7 months since the scandalous news of the breakdown of his marriage as a result of alleged indiscriminate cheating by his wife broke, Ghanaian comedian-Funny Face, real name Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng has finally spoken exclusively to Ghanacelebrities.com.

Yesterday, Ghanacelebrities.com published an interview with a close friend of Funny Face — in which the friend went all out, talking about the multiple chop down of Funny Face’s wife by several men and shockingly revealing that he had even slept with Funny Face’s wife – Elizabeth Nana Adjoa Ntim.

Speaking to Ghanacelebrities.Com a few minutes ago over the phone, Funny Face said he has finally decided to break his silence because he is upset about his friend’s breach of confidence — saying, everything his friend said is true but he told him all of that in confidence and never expected him to mention it anywhere.

According to Funny Face, when he was at his lowest and was suicidal, he needed something to talk to as he couldn’t contain what his wife was putting him through. And that was when he spoke to this friend who already knew whatever he was going through.

Funny Face mentioned that, he spoke to his friend one late night of February, 2016, pouring his hearts out to him, thinking it would stay just between them.

Therefore he is shocked and somewhat angry that even though he told his friend not to air any of the things he knows, he proceeded to grant an interview to Ghanacelebrities.com—intending to let the world know his side of the story but ending up tainting his ex-wife, the very thing he has tried to avoid for about 7 months now.

During the interview, Funny Face stated that, he did not even know that this friend had slept with his wife before even though he is friends with four ex-boyfriends of the woman he married.

Ghanacelebrities.com‘s Editor-Chris-Vincent Agyapong Febiri just spoke to a friend of Funny Face who admitted to sleeping with Funny Face’s wife-Elizabeth Nana Adjoa Ntim, but that was before she got married to Funny.

Beyond this, the friend stated among other things that the woman is a loose woman, who was constantly chopped down by multiple men while married to Funny Face, turning Funny into a laughing stock.

The friend of Funny Face emphatically stated that, just two days after Funny Face married his wife, she went to sleep with her ex-husband at a hotel — this he claims was later confirmed to Funny Face by the 62 year old man who divorced Elizabeth Nana Adjoa Ntim because she was indiscriminately cheating on him too.

The friend of Funny Face was frank and admitted that indeed Funny Face once battered the wife, but he did that out of frustration and anger because of her chronic cheating.

He also mentioned that the assault even became a police case but there was no prosecution as Funny Face showed instant remorse and also because it was his first, caused by the on-going diabolical behaviour of the woman.

During the conversation, it was said that Funny Face’s wife, who is a police officer was ironically into Sakawa with some Tema fraud boys. She is a Tema girl — those who believe the hovering Tema girls’ dirty reputation wouldn’t be shocked.

7 THINGS YOU SHOULD NEVER DO AFTER WORKING OUT

AB22736

After I bring myself to work out, all I want to do is eat, nap and Netflix.

Because I worked my behind off, I’ll usually go for an all-in meal of all my favourite fatty foods. Naturally, this is not healthy (or helpful) behaviour. To find out exactly what I could do – and what I should absolutely stay away from – I tapped a few fitness and health experts for their thoughts on the subject.

You’ll find all the drinks you should stay away from, the foods you definitely shouldn’t eat, and a few common mistakes you’re probably making along the way.

1. EAT A HEAVY MEAL

“After an intense workout, it’s extremely important to give yourself time to cool down before eating, says Leila Fazel, co-founder of Aerospace. “A gruelling workout will leave your body stressed and, subsequently, your brain will think you’re more ravenous than you actually are. That can end in unnecessary bingeing.” Instead, while your body is still revving, give yourself a breather before eating.

2. INDULGE IN A SUGARY SPORTS BEVERAGE

“People tend to go overboard after a workout, fuelling up with sugary drinks like Gatorade or Powerade,” explains Fazel. “Unfortunately, those drinks are laden with sugar and high-fructose corn syrup. Though sugar in the short term makes you feel good right away, drinking a ton of sugar after a workout won’t allow your body to metabolise – it’s not dehydrating what your body has lost during the workout. Water is the best fuel post-workout.”

3. TAKE A NAP

Fazel says, “Though your body may be exhausted after an intense workout, resist the urge to take a nap. Going to sleep directly after exercising won’t allow your body to relax and cool down. It’s similar to slamming on the brakes in a car. Your muscles are still fatigued and overworked – it’s important to take an hour and a half to two hours to truly cool down before resting.”

4. RUSH YOUR STRETCH

Stretching is one of the most important (and often neglected) parts of a fitness routine. Fazel recommends, “Stretching post-workout helps the breakdown of lactic acid that your body built up during exercise, releasing it through the muscles. Getting into the habit will help avoid injury and soreness, as well as drastically improve your flexibility.”

5. TOUCH YOUR FACE WITH SWEATY TOWEL

“Think about it,” SoulCycle instructor and holistic nutritionist Eve Lynn Kessner says. “You wipe your sweat off your shoulders, abs, then your face? Your hands are filled with germs you (or the person who used that machine before you) sweat out. First thing, wash your hands and splash your face with some cool water. Beauty comes from the inside out, but clogging those pores won’t help your cause.”

6. STAY IN SWEATY CLOTHING

“Take your time hydrating and cooling down after your workout, but don’t walk around all day in sweaty clothing,” advises Kessner. “Let that inner glow shine (not chafe), and put on something clean and breathable.”

7. FORGET TO DRINK WATER

Kessner exclaims, “Always hydrate!” She continues, “If your workout was super sweaty, go for some natural electrolytes by way of coconut water – so many juice places now will serve it straight from the shell – or watermelon water.

UG students go to parliament over “killer” fees

ug

 

Some concerned students of the University of Ghana have formally petitioned the Speaker of Parliament, Professor Mike Oquaye over what they describe as exorbitant academic fees being charged by the school.

The students are accusing the university authorities of arbitrarily increasing fees every new academic year, a situation they say compounds the hardship they have been enduring.

They want Parliament to scrutinise the fees before the university is allowed to bill students.

The petition was also copied to the Minister of State in charge of Tertiary Education.

Receiving the petition on behalf of the Speaker, Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, who is also the chairman of the Subsidiary Legislation Committee Mahama Ayariga asked public universities to comply with the law by submitting their proposed fees to Parliament.

He said: “My committee is meeting on Thursday and I want to assure you that I will present the petition to the entire committee for its consideration and you will hear from us. But I want to assure you that parliament has already raised the issue of the need for the universities through the Ministry of Finance to bring their proposed fees for consideration.

We have not yet received that from the Ministry of Finance. We have some information that some universities have started submitting their proposed fees to the National Council for Tertiary Education, I believe for onward transmission to the Minister of Education and then Minister of Finance.”

He continued: “Now I want to join you to appeal to the universities to comply with the law and present their proposed fees to Parliament for consideration.

I believe that if they move fast with some demonstration of good fate, the committee might sit during recess to consider proposals so that when parliament is recalled for any other business, there will be an opportunity to re-lay it.”

“PAY $5000 TO BE TRANSFORMED INTO A MILLIONAIRE”- PASTOR OTABIL

icgc

The issue of Pastors is something that I personally do not talk about because the Bible warned us against criticizing them.

But it’s about time we speak against the dubious means Pastors on this part of the continent is making money out of the poor people under the cover of God.

And the International Central Gospel Church(ICGC) in Ghana for that matter it’s founder Pastor Mensa Otabil is one of such people that the government has to descend on. Last night I was driving around the Independence square where their evening parts of the Greater Works 2017 Event is held and the human and vehicular  traffic on the road was very terrible.There is no problem with organizing such events but asking the poor people to pay such a stupendous amount is very stupid and an act of day-light robbery. I can say on authority that this Pastor is one of the richest pastors in Africa and someone will ask where is his money coming from? Forget about his Central University College, when was the school established?

If the government is unable to take a step on this matter because it’s more to do with religion then I will suggest that there should be a bill pass to tax offertories in churches.Assuming he got 20 people paying  $5000 the tax the government will get is Ghc75,250.00. And that can build a 6-unit classroom block in my village.

Jesus upon returning to his maker said, He has left us in the care of the men of God, and if this is how those “men of God” is robbing us, then the question I’m asking is “Are we safe?”. God save mother Ghana.

 

 

 

HOW TO IMPRESS A GUY ON A FIRST DATE

 

first date

If you come to think of it, basically there are two kinds of women: those attractive to men and those who impress them. While this may come to you naturally, it is possible that you are asking yourself how to impress a guy?

Well, first of all, impressing a guy isn’t rocket science. If you do it right, you will find the answer to the question how to get a boyfriend.
In case he is impressed by you, you can be sure that he will call you the next day and it won’t be long before you have your second date. Just make sure to remember the best ways to impress a guy.

Are you looking to leave a lasting impression on him? You are in luck! Here are the basic ways to impress a guy without fail. Dive into how to impress a boy, man, or any guy. The sky’s the limit and guys are falling.

  • Your emotional IQ
Always have the right thing to say to him even if it’s bad news

If you would like to know how to impress a guy on a date, the first thing you have to keep in mind is that you are a woman. This means that you are supposed to have emotions. However, there is no need to burst in tears every time he tells you a sad story. Instead, you should work on your emotional IQ. Having a high emotional IQ helps you say all the right things at all the right times. When asking how can I impress a guy, it all starts with knowing what to say when he tells you he had a bad day.

  • What to wear to impress a guy
Sometimes all it takes to dress to impress a guy is taking advantage of the fact that he is a guy

One of the most important questions that women ask themselves regarding their dates is how to dress to impress a guy. Although you may have heard this a million times before, it is a good idea to show some skin on your date. Naturally you should be thinking about something tasteful, yet sexy. For example, you could go for a little black dress with a nice yet not too revealing cleavage. For some reason men are obsessed with women’s chest. This doesn’t mean they are superficial; they are simply men.

  • Get the bill
Some men are impress when you get the bill. Go figure.

There are many different ways to impress a guy and one of them is to get the bill at the restaurant. Although this isn’t something that you should do on the first date, it is nice for men to have someone else get the bill for a change. When asking how do I impress a guy you should know that this will show him that you are generous and it shows that you have a lot of confidence too. Also, it is nice to know that you don’t need him to pay all the time. However, because he will be strongly impressed, most probably he will pay most of the time.

  • It’s in your smile
Smiling is either your greatest strength or your greatest weakness. If not the latter, use it to your advantage. Smile.

Although you may not believe it, the best way to impress a guy is to be smiling. If you are thinking about how to impress a guy at work, this is something you will have to be thinking about. Naturally, it shouldn’t be just any smile. It has to look genuine and sweet. In order to avoid awkward situations, you should make sure that the remains of the parsley and sesame seed salad you had for lunch aren’t still “clinging” to your smile. Also remember not to force it so that he won’t think you’re some kind of freak.

  • Agree to disagree
Guys don’t like it when girls agree on everything they say. Girl who are ‘clingy’ rise to the occasion to agree. Point: Don’t be that girl. Agree to disagree.

Women are often wondering what to say to impress a guy. Some may be tempted to agree with him in everything he says so that he will like them. In the end the guy may have the impression that the woman in question doesn’t have an opinion. This is why it is best to disagree when you feel the need without being disagreeable. One of the tips to impress a guy is to say out loud when you don’t disagree, but wrap it up nicely. It will be fascinating for him to meet someone who sees the world differently than him.

  • Your hairdo
The time you spend playing with your hair is directly-proportional to how much you can impress a guy on a date

You may think that men don’t care about such details, but you should know that hair is one of the things about women that men are fascinated with. If you are asking how to dress to impress guys, you should wear a dress that leaves your neck uncovered and let your hair loose. It is important for your hair to look soft and to look as if it had a nice smell. The women wondering about what to do to impress a guy should remember to play a bit with her hair. For some reason this seems really appealing to men.

  • Have a hobby and talk about it
What guy wouldn’t be impressed with a independent woman who’s got her own… hobbies?

In case you are wondering how to impress a guy on a first date, put hobbies on your list of things to talk about. They might not realize it but men are bored of talking about their job and listening to other people talking about their jobs. It is nice to hear someone talk about something else for a change and you get bonus points for being able to share information regarding your hobby. If you would like to know how do you impress a guy, you can be sure that you are on the right path. This way he will be more likely to share his hobby as well.

  • Be smart
Someday he’ll find out that you are smarter than him. Someday. Or you are one of those people who think there’s no time to calculate-pi, just show him already. Eventually, someone will get you.

There are some people saying that men don’t like smart women. The truth you have to know when it comes to how to impress a man on a first date is that only not-so-smart men don’t like smart women. The knowledgeable women who know that they are smart and don’t feel a need to impress are really impressive. This means that if you are asking how to find a boyfriend, you will have to show off your brains. If he feels threatened by you, you can be sure that you weren’t meant to be together… ever.

Is impressing a guy with clothes overrated?

You may be asking how to impress a guy with clothes, but remember that your personality is the most impressive aspect about you from a guy’s point of view.

“YOU CANT STOP ME”-MRS SHATTA

Shatta-Michy

Shatta Michy, wife of dance hall artiste Shatta Wale is unfazed by plans by the Accra Metropolitan Assembly to demolish her pub at East Legon in Accra.

The Diamond Pub and Grill is among other structures lying within the East Legon Green Belt zone which have been earmarked for demolition by the assembly.

MICHY FB

Michy added that all these trials and challenges will not stop her from achieving her goals in life and she intends to inspire other young ladies with her works.

“I’m 24, I have my businesses, my education, my wonderful family, and I’m grinding still, there’s money to be made on these streets and nothing will stop me and my fellow young ladies who are willing to make it out here. You can’t break me. Try something else,” she stated.

MICHY2

About four months ago, the young showbiz personality and wife of dance hall colossus Shatta Wale was ridiculed for putting up a container pub. Her critics said the container pub was unbecoming of her status.

Shatta Michy who got married to Shatta Wale few years ago was recently featured on her husband’s ‘Tempo,’ one of the hit songs in the country at present.
