6 things we do which kills us very early

1. Microwave popcorn:

Studies show that microwave popcorn can lead to a lung condition that can shorten your life. According to research published by Discovery Health, a chemical called diacetyl that helps give microwave popcorn its buttery flavor can lead to a severe lung condition if it’s consumed too much. So you may have to start preparing you own popcorn on fire or stop consuming it altogether.

2: Taking sleeping pills

Taking

sleeping pills regularly makes you 4.6 times more likely to die earlier than people who do not. This is according to an article published by Daily Mail UK. The article explains that dangerous ingredients in these pills, which include benzodiazepines, barbiturates and sedatives are deadly and even those who took as few as four pills a year were 3.6 times more likely to encounter an earlier death.

3. Watching too much TV:

Watching television (TV) is one of the ways many Ghanaians relax after a hard day’s work but researchers say watching two hours of TV per day could take 1.4 years off your life. A study on ‘sedentary behavior’ has shown that too much time just sitting around is not good for your life expectancy.

4. Oversleeping:

For any ordinary Ghanaian, sleeping is understood to be a form of rest and they will do their best to sleep if they have the chance. But studies show that people who sleep eight hours or more a day die younger than people who sleep six or seven hours per day. And moreover, oversleeping has been found to cause diabetes, headaches, depression and heart diseases.

5. Sitting through bad traffic:

For any Ghanaian living in the big cities, commuting is a big problem because of the often bad traffic situations. But if you have any other alternative, you should take that because your too long daily commutes leads to a long list of diseases and health issues, shortening your life. And also, all the stress and inactivity is simply not good for your health.

6. Eating too much red meat:

Red meat forms a large part of the diet of many Ghanaians as we know it to be a good source of protein but it is advised that you eat it sparingly because people who have at least four ounces of red or processed meat per day are 30 percent more likely to die earlier. The reason is that red and processed meat have been found to be associated increases in total mortality, cancer mortality and cardiovascular disease mortality.

Prophetess claims she can ressurect ebony -pleading to ebony’s family to provide the corpse

Taking into consideration the bunch of controversies that characterized her carefree showbiz lifestyle, age and exceptional music talent.

Therefore, when her death went viral on February 8, 2018, most people thought it’s hoax especially Madam Beatrice Oppong, mother of Ebony. But when it turned out to be true per vivid evidence, Madam Beatrice shed uncontrollable tears that God should reverse the calamity because she feels her daughter is just asleep.

If you could remember, in one viral video on the internet, mother of Ebony was heard screaming and pleading with God to give her daughter a miracle, so she could be told that her daughter has risen from the death.

“Dear God, grant me a miracle and let me hear that my daughter has risen from the death. I want to have a convenant with you, I don’t want any pre-mature death in my family anymore. Please, God of TB Joshua, if you can hear me, please, help me, for I am drowning in sorrow”.

Yes!, Ebony is not dead but asleep as one Kumasi-based prophetess named Agyeiwaa Kodee has reasoned with Ebony’s mother and that she can bring back Ebony to life on condition. The condition is that the family has to release the corpse to her for the needed rituals to be performed to bring Ebony back to life by Sunday, February 25, 2018.

The prophetess added that God struck Ebony dead because He wanted to teach her a lesson per what God has revealed to her. In reference to the prophetess’ revelation, most people per their response to a publication on the issue at GHBase.com, have advised that the prophetess should be given a hearing by the family.

It’s in the light of this that most Ghanaians are rallying behind the servant of God that Ebony’s corpse should be given to her by the family. To those who shared their sentiment on the matter, Ebony is ‘dead’ so the family has nothing to lose if the prophetess fails to do the needful. Regardless the God worshipped by prophetess Agyeiwaa Kodee is a God of possibilities.

8 reasons you shouldn’t stand and drink water

It is not just about drinking 8 glasses of water a day to stay healthy and hydrated. It matters in what position you have the water. Do you sit and drink water, or normally have it in passing, while standing?

Some experts have uncovered that it is no old wives tale when the elders in the family ask you to sit down and then gulp your water. In fact, it is a gem of an advise that you had better heed to for a healthy living. To make the most of the water we drink it is advised to sit down and have it in small sips than glug it down in a rush while standing.

Here are some shocking scientific reasons that tell you the difference it makes to your body when you have your water standing as opposed to sitting down.

1. Standing and drinking water can cause arthritis

This may come as a greater shock to you if you have been in a practice of drinking water in a standing position, for you may well be affected by arthritis later in life. By drinking water standing you disrupt the balance of fluids in the body, and this often leads to a greater accumulation of fluids in the joints thus triggering arthritis.

don't drink water while standing

2. Water splashes on the stomach wall when had standing

Health experts have it that by having water fast and in a standing position, you let it flow to your gut while splashing on the stomach wall. This shock from the splashing of water can cause long term damage to the digestive system as it harms the stomach wall and the gastrointestinal tract.

3. You remain thirsty when you drink water standing

Your thirst is never fully quenched when you drink water in a standing position. You feel like drinking more water very frequently. It is better to sit in a place and have smaller sips to truly quench your thirst.

4. You always suffer indigestion when you drink water standing

When you drink water sitting down your muscles and nervous system are much more relaxed and it triggers the nerves to quickly digest the fluid and with it other food items.

5. Your kidney doesn’t filter water properly when had in standing position

Drinking water in a standing position doesn’t help the filtration process of water by the kidneys. Often impurities remain in the kidneys and bladder which can lead to urinary tract disorder and even permanent damage to the kidneys.

6. Drinking water in standing position doesn’t dilute the acid levels in the body

Even Ayurveda mentions it that water must be consumed in slow, small swigs while sitting down. This helps to properly dilute the acid levels in the body by getting combined with the necessary proportion of water.

7. Drinking water by standing causes ulcers and heartburn

When you drink water in a standing position it ends up splashing the lower half of the esophagus very hard. This in return can disturb the sphincter, which is the joint between the stomach and esophagus, and as a result the esophagus experiencesburning sensation because of the acids in the stomach flowing backward.

8. Your nerves are tense when you drink water standing

When you drink water standing, a ‘fight and flight system’ is activated which causes nerve tension in the body. But when you sit down and sip water, a parasympathetic system also referred to as the ‘rest and digest system’ comes into fray, this one helps to calm your senses and ease the process of digestion.

You had better sit down and drink your water before it is too late. Isn’t it?

Everyone has a gaurdian angel – 5 things you can do to connect with your angel

The myth or religious beliefs of mankind having their respective guardian angels who protect them from unfortunate incidents are complete belief systems that often apply to those who believe in the mythical powers of angels.

In fact, several arguments exist to either disapprove or approve of the existence of angels. Be it all as it may, this article dwells on the theological belief of the existence of Guardian Angels. It, therefore, applies to religious minds who believe in such a theological doctrine or belief .

We all do know of a guardian angel as that messenger from God who supports us in times of need, protects us from the snares of the enemy or even guides us through the journey called life. But even as we drool over ever wanting or having that angel with us; you need to know they truly are next to us, waiting for you to just communicate to them.

Let’s go through six easiest ways of making this a dream come true – of how to communicate with our Guardian Angel.

  1. Personal prayer(s) Prayer, talking with a Supernatural Being (God or Angel) has been known since distant Jewish history as the only way of connecting with one’s God-scent angel. In praying, express your loving devotion. Ask for help – all of which must be done in the quality of a sincerity.

  2. Talk to your guardian angel Even though you may not see that shiny glittery angel trail beside you as you make your way through the day, believe me – they surely are around. You can communicate with your angel while you take walks, talking about questions, challenges, and desires you feel and just watch for your angel’s response to your questions and requests for help. You would be amazed by the magical response you get!

3. Meditate You may want to freely open your heart and senses to hear responses to your prayers and also feel the soothing love of God. This should normally be done in coolest places like gardens, parks, forests, or even in the silence of your house/ bedroom. Remember, angels, are best felt in silence and harmony.

  1. Desire – What do you want? Your desires create a force that compels you to take action. Your guardian angel and God respond to your desire. If you desire a deeper relationship with God and your guardian angel and take the action of reaching out, you will experience a respon.

5. Cleanliness As the old saying goes, cleanliness is next to godliness. The only way to attract a holy and Godly spirit is when your heart, soul, and mind is absolutely clean and pure. Take off all the sins, evil thoughts, bitterness and vengeance in your heart and rather make way for that calm spiritual connection.

13 Mistakes we do when spending money

MONEY MISTAKES

Money Mistake 1
Never borrow money that accrues interest to start a business . That is to say, never borrow money to start a business expecting that the business will generate income to pay back the borrowed money plus the interest.

Money Mistake 2
Never spend money you haven’t received. Don’t even promise someone money based on a promise you have from someone else. If someone tells you: “Ezra, come to my office tomorrow at 9am and pick #30K”don’t go out to buy items on credit based on this promise, with the hope that you will pay off your creditor when the promised money comes; it may not come as promised and this will leave you in problems with your creditors.

Money Mistakes 3
If you want to save, whenever you receive money, don’t start spending hoping that you’ll save what remains. Normally what remains is zero because as long as money to spend is available, the numerous things you can spend it on are also available. And things to spend on even incite their ‘relatives’ so that you spend even more than you had planned. When money to spend is not available, we naturally find a way of doing without it. Before you spend any money, put your savings aside then spend what is left after saving.

Money Mistake 4
When you get an opportunity to meet a very wealthy person, never ask for money. Ask for ideas on how to make money. They may even choose to give you money on their own after seeing that your ideas are great, but let getting money from them never be your objective.

Money Mistake 5
Keeping your seed instead of planting it. Many people stop at saving. It’s very, very difficult to save and have all you need to maintain your lifestyle especially after retirement. When you save, your savings are seed; plant it. When you just keep the seed (saving money) some seeds begin to die (eaten by inflation and the like). That’s why I recommend that you read about the different types of investment vehicles you can use to grow your savings. I am not necessarily talking about putting the money in a business, because you can easily lose money in business. I am talking about putting it in an investment.

Money Mistake 6
Never lend someone money you are not willing to lose. By the time you lend someone money, be contented in your heart that should the person fail to pay, you will not die. You should not even lose that person’s friendship if they fail to repay the money you lent them. If you feel the person might fail to pay you and this will not affect your relationship with them, then lend them money. If their failure to pay would make you hate this person’s entire clan, please advise the person to go to the bank.

Money Mistake 7
Never append your signature to guarantee someone on a financial matter if you are not willing or able to pay the money on their behalf. Do I have to explain that one? No, it’s self-explanatory.

Money Mistake 8
Avoid keeping money you don’t intend to use in the short-term within easy reach. For instance, don’t walk with #100K in your pocket when all you plan to do in a day costs #20K. Like I mentioned in Money Mistake 3, there are always expenses available to gobble any money that is within reach, so if you don’t want to lose it, put it away in a safe place.

Money Mistake 9
Avoid keeping money in inappropriate places e.g. in socks, under the pillow, in a pit, in the sitting room, in the bra, in a travel bag that you will place somewhere in a bus … impulse buying is a devil that will keep you busy!

Money Mistake 10
Spending money on an item that you can do without (at least for the time being). These days when I pick money from my pocket or wallet, before paying for something I ask myself: What would happen if I didn’t buy this? If I find I can live with the consequences of not having that thing, I smile and walk away.

Money Mistake 11
Paying an amount for something that’s not the minimum you can get that same value for. In other words, if you are along east Legon road and you pay #5K for a shoe that you can get at #3K at Makola market, that’s a money mistake except for those who have achieved financial freedom.

Money Mistake 12:
Consistently spending all you earn or more than you earn. It’s like having a drum where you have an inlet that’s smaller than the outlet. It will never get full. And should the inlet ever reduce significantly the drum will run dry. If you do it the other way round and the inlet is bigger, it will get full and even overflow. Hence, we have to always ensure we are widening the inlet while narrowing the outlet – all the time. Your side hustle comes in handy!

Money Mistake 13:
Thinking about short-term only and forgetting about long-term or thinking about the long-term and forgetting about the short-term. For instance, Lydia was told that there’s money in land. She saved money over a long period of time and bought 30 acres of land. Now she has the land but she is always broke. She is always complaining. She’s disgruntled and she doesn’t seem to see herself earning from the land in the near future. Now, let’s ask ourselves: Having 30 acres of land and no money to feed your family or take a child to hospital, is that wealth or poverty? I think Lydia only looked at long-term needs and forgot that she has short-term needs that require money. What of those who find they are one paycheck away from salary? Are they thinking about the long-term needs?

Let’s take stock of our finances. How many mistakes are you guilty of? Do you now feel better-equipped to do better with these tips? Good luck, savers!

God bless you as you work on your financial prudence as we match into 2018

Fifteen (15) stupid things many women practice and they end up destroying thier marriage

1) DARING YOUR HUSBAND TO BEAT YOU:
You block the door way, then dare him to beat you up and see what will happen. A Lot of women have done this and end up regretting.

2) DARING YOUR HUSBAND TO SLEEP WITH ANOTHER WOMAN:
You will be making a major mistake if you dare your husband to sleep with another woman. You may live to regret it.

3) NEGLECTING YOUR BODY AND LOOKS BECAUSE YOU ARE MARRIED:
“I am married i can relax, after all who is looking at me.?” He married you Slim, sexy and trendy. Next thing you become obsessed, dirty and shabbily dressed.
It is the mistake of most careless married women.

4) DENYING YOUR HUSBAND SEX REGULARLY:
You are a career woman; You are an overly religious woman… Hmmm! You feel sex in marriage is secondary, you deny your husband your body regularly, so he is sexually starved and intimacy famished. His Secretary, colleagues and girls in church are seducing and begging him to come to them but you have padlocked your Jerusalem and expect him not to lust after others. His mind will drift from you towards them.

5) LEAVING YOUR HUSBAND FOR YOUR FEMALE FRIEND TO CATER FOR:
“My dear friend, please be my eye as I travel for this one week, help cater for my husband and my little kids”. By the time you are back, your dear friend has so really helped you by sleeping with your husband and expecting a new baby as continuation from where you stopped.
If at all she has not eloped with your man, leaving your children all alone.
It is very stupid to commit your husband into the hands of your beautiful and very active friend.

6) LEAVING YOUR HUSBAND IN THE HANDS OF YOUR HOUSE MAID:
Your maid is the one that cooks,cleans the house, cares for the children and your husband. You suddenly become a lazy bone since the arrival of the maid. All you do is shout and place orders. Not bad! But if your husband feels more love and care from the maid, sister that maid won’t struggle to snatch your husband. You are the one graciously giving him to her and those that need him.

7) EMPLOYING A FULLY GROWN, RED BLOODED LADY AS A MAID:
She is fully grown up and well endowed back and front very tantalizing. She dresses skimpily and sexily like an actress, cat walks like a model and that is your own house maid?
What a mistake!

8) EMPLOYING A HOUSE GIRL THAT IS MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN YOU:
Employing a house girl more beautiful than you is a major technical mistake most women make. This means you are using your money to employ a rival for yourself. Don’t be foolish when getting a maid. They act dumb like maids to you for the time being but when your husband starts sleeping with them, you will be shocked they are more agile than you when they start fighting you.

9) USING ANALOG BRAIN TO LIVE WITH A DIGITAL HUSBAND:
Your husband is growing with ideas and all; you contribute nothing than sitting down at home to eat. He is dressing like a guy with jeans and face cap; you are celebrating the fact that you are a married woman to a Yuppy cute man. Your husband is on Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp, Skype etc; the only thing you know about mobile phone is receiving and making calls. Your husband is talking about stock market; you only talk about tomato market. He’s talking about Forex; you are talking about fruit and vegetables only. He will see you so backwards, local and dumb. Upgrade please!

10) FAILING TO COMMIT YOUR FAMILY INTO THE HANDS OF GOD:
A wife won’t do well if she fails to commit her family into the hands of God regularly. Don’t make such mistakes of thinking you are in charge of your husband and marriage and you can handle things. Be prayerful, hand over your family to God daily. May you never labour in vain and another reaps where you have sown!

11) FIGHTING YOUR MOTHER IN-LAW CARELESSLY:
You may fight your Mother in-law dirty and think you have won especially if she’s innocent, you will end up losing. Her son and herself have been friends and lovers for years before you came; may be before you were born. She was the first ‘wife’ of your husband and also the first ‘girlfriend’. Her son cannot divorce her and she is more experienced than you in matrimonial battles, in fact she is a veteran of many conflicts. Yes i know that a wife becomes a priority and number one and some men try to place their mums above their wives . That is stupid and sickening! Apply wisdom and talk to God and your husband about it. But don’t come in with the intention to separate mother and son. Respect a worthy mother in-law. Not all of them are wicked. Not all are witches. You meet a wicked one, apply wisdom and avoid her ways.

12) TELLING YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT YOUR SEX LIFE:
When you tell your friends about your sex life and how your husband rocks you, you are indirectly telling them to go have a feel of him. They can size you up and know whether your husband is hot or not, whether he is sexually fulfilled or not. They may even know your Husband’s “turn on” and use it against him then grab your husband. Most women have carelessly lost their husbands as they boast to their friends “my husband is too sexually demanding, he is an expert when it comes to sex, he is a horse, he almost kills me in bed, he has a horse size” etc… Your friends will pick information like this and cover things up where you have been failing.

13) REPORTING YOUR HUSBAND TO HIS MUM:
It looks beautiful to report your husband to his Mum, but the end result will hurt you. Most mothers will support their sons any day; children are always right before their Mothers. Seek counsel in the right quarters, never report your husband to his Mum unless his mum is so god fearing, honest and impartial.

14) LETTING CHILDREN TAKE THE PLACE OF YOUR HUSBAND:
Many wives abandon their husbands, denying them of love, care and attention as soon as babies begin to arrive they transfer all affection to their kids. To sleep in bed, they put the Baby in between themselves making the man feel lost and the bond divided. No warm hugs, caress etc.

15) USING SEX WRONGLY:
Sex is supposed to bind you both together, it is supposed to create intimacy and love but in many homes it is the bone of contention. Some women do turn sex to a tool of manipulation;
Some use it for trade by barter. Some wives will suddenly become commanders at home when their husbands touch them for sex, ordering the man around, “go and off the Fan” “go and lock the gate” “go and check whether our children are sleeping” “How about that money I asked you to give me?” Etc…
This is just too bad.

Some wives sleep like log of wood in bed while some even wear Jean, knickers to bed.
Nothing sexy
Nothing erotic
Nothing romantic
Nothing Inviting!
If you continue like this you will hurt your marriage deeply and you may destroy your future also. He will start lusting and chasing sexy daughters of Jezebel out there who may fetish him out of home to themselves

A smart wife builds her home, the stupid ones are careless. I know you will be like…. Why can’t he have self control and stay faithful?

Forget it dear.

We are all humans and things push us to do things we never planned.

Be wise!!!

Do you know your face shape could determine the possibility of cheating on your girlfriend or boyfriend -read

You probably haven’t given much thought to the shape of your face. But now you might want to, because a new study suggests it can say a lot about your sex life.

Researchers at Nipissing University, Ontario, Canada, interviewed 145 undergrad students in relationships about their sex lives, asking them questions about how often they wanted to have sex and how many times they masturbated in a typical month.

As it turns out, students with a larger facial width-to-height ratios, or wider faces, reported they did these things more than the students who had narrower faces.

So what does that mean? The study found that men with wider faces have higher levels of testosterone. The researchers suggested this was correlated with a higher incidence of promiscuity, a higher sex drive, and a greater willingness to be unfaithful.

This isn’t the first time that face shape has been linked to various personality traits. (In fact, there’s a term for this type of research: it’s called physiognomy, or the study of the face.)

Previous research, for instance, has indicated that men with wider face shapes are more likely to have higher levels of testosterone and aggression. But physiognomy is not a perfect science, so such research should be taken with a grain of salt.

That’s why it’s important to note that if you do end up caught with your pants around your ankles, the last excuse you should use for your behavior is your face shape. (We know someone’s gonna try it.) Ultimately, you’re in control of your actions — not your face.

Caution “You Will Never Carry Your Mobile Phone To The Toilet After Reading This

75% of us use our smart phone whiles attending to nature’s call or in the toilet room.

We all take our smart phones or tablets to the toilet. In fact it has become a very common habit among Phone users.

But according to scientist it is very dangerous habbit and exposes the user to all forms of infections by bacteria such as E. Coli or Salmonella which which can o a lot of damage to the body system.

Are you wondering how that is possible?

Dr. Lisa Ackerley has the answer. “If you wipe your bum then pick up your phone, you may as well not bother washing your hands because all the bacteria you put on your phone will end up back on your hands,” she says.

What option then do phone users who have grown addicted to this habit have?

Well, according to Dr. Ron Cutler, not taking your phone in the bathroom is the right step. “Basically, you just shouldn’t (take your phone into the toilet) if you are at all concerned about the transfer of viruses and fecal contamination.”

The doctor went on to explain that the level of contamination depends on the location of the toilet facility.

Compare to offices and home toilet facility, public toilets have high increase risk of infection.

He went on to explain that virus transmission is very common and can be transferred by anything. A such its not restricted to only by hands or air

A single spray from the toilet can travel six feet from the flush and end on your toothbrush, which is why it should be in a closed cupboard.

Germs can even survive on your phone for days! “Phones heat up a little bit giving bacteria a nice warm environment. If people handle sweets and leave a sticky coating on the phone, that’s an even better place for bacteria,” Dr. Cutler says.

This is why it’s very important to wash your hands well with soap and water any time you’re using the bathroom.

With such knowledge, you should try as much as possible to leave the phone when attending to nature calls. Prevention as always is far better than cure.
