Sudan:Poor women are flogged for ‘indecent’ dressing

 

Khartoum, Sudan – Omnia Hamid is pretty laid back about whether the turquoise scarf loosely covering her head stays there. As she sits at her desk at work, it keeps falling of, onto her shoulders and even when she tugs it back onto her head, it just slips off again. In this, Omnia, a office employee in her early thirties, is typical of many urban educated young women in Khartoum. She covers, but not obsessively, and is as happy in trousers as skirts.

“I am very comfortable with the way I dress,” she says later, relaxing on a magenta sofa next to her sisters at their her home. “Islam is about principles and beliefs, it is not about the way you dress. In fact I only own three skirts.” Continue reading “Sudan:Poor women are flogged for ‘indecent’ dressing”

Photo:COZA church loses large amount of members

 

Smite the shepherd and the sheep will flee”. This biblical injunction vividly captures the ongoing scenario at the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, COZA.

The name COZA became a ‘street anthem’ a few months back following a shocking confession by one Ese Walter, an ex-member of the church of her week-long sexual escapade with the senior pastor of the church, Abiodun Fatoyinbo. However, since then, the pastor has neither come out to refute or accept the allegation, but claimed that he was still waiting for God’s order.
While many still doubt the authenticity of the allegations, some light-hearted members of COZA are gradually leaving the church.It was learnt during a recent visit to the Lagos branch of the church, situated in Maryland, Ikeja. Continue reading “Photo:COZA church loses large amount of members”

18 warning signs your relationship is doomed

Gogus olculeri

 

Have you ever tried to salvage a relationship, only to be burned badly? Other times, no matter how hard we try, our partner is no longer interested in a relationship with us. Here are some warning signs to show that your relationship is in trouble.

Not all warning signs have to be present for there to be a problem in the relationship, as different problems and various personalities can make a number of unique combinations of relationship trouble.

The common denominators here are your gut telling you something is wrong, and your insecurities that did not surface (or worsen) until AFTER the relationship. Continue reading “18 warning signs your relationship is doomed”

Why are law students arrogant and lawyers humble?

 

Lawyers in Nigeria are not as employable as medical doctors. Go to Lewis street in Obalende and observe them crowding newspaper stands or bookstores arguing (as always) about one matter or the other.

There’s a category of people who read this blog and for some weird reason believe it is anathema to comment publicly – they prefer to attack me via facebook message or other means and one of this turns out to be a doctor who called me on phone yesterday to protest about what I perceive about their professional arrogance. Those who know me know I rarely take kindly to such calls except the person is an eminent member of any emotional group I belong to or speaks their mind jocularly. Well, this doctor dude (as personally arrogant as British royalty)was the wrong poster boy for doctor’s yesterday and I reminded him of several occasions where his arrogance had been pointed out – once by a roadside mechanic on Bode Thomas. His saving grace yesterday was that he had an argument: he claimed that every profession has a form of arrogance, especially lawyers.

ASUU strike: Lecturers are only fighting for allowances, not better education – FG

 

The rift between the Federal Government of Nigeria and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has deepened even as the FG accused the organization of fighting for its own selfish interests and not for the benefit of  Nigerian students.

The  government has accused the university body of not being honest and sincere about the real motive behind the almost 3-month old strike which has crippled academic activities in the country’s universities.

Expert Opinion: 6 Things That Influence Your Dreams

 

When we’re sleeping, our bodies do everything they can to stay asleep. So rather than waking us up, outside stimuli — smells, sounds, sensations — often become woven into our dream narratives. “The dreaming mind has this really cool way of seemingly flawlessly incorporating the outside interference into the storyline of the dream,” explains Lauri Loewenberg, a certified dream analyst and member of theInternational Association for the Study of Dreams.

Which means that there are a lot of influences that can shape how your dreams play out. Just keep in mind that your natural dreams, i.e. those that aren’t at the mercy of what’s happening around you in the real world, help you process your thoughts and feelings about your day. Too much interference, Loewenberg says, “can be disruptive to the message your dreaming mind is trying to give you.” Continue reading “Expert Opinion: 6 Things That Influence Your Dreams”

How I Escaped Nairobi Attack — Soyinka

 

Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has said that the late Ghanaian diplomat and poet, Kofi Awoonor and himself could have been together at the Storymoja/Hay Literature Festival held in Nairobi, Kenya.

He said he was invited to the same festival but could not attend.

Awoonor was killed by terrorists last Saturday at the Westgate Shopping Mall shooting in Nairobi. Soyinka said two commitments: a public conversation with a very brave individual, Karima Bennoune, an Algerian national, whose trenchant publication – Your Fatwa Does Not Apply Here, and the annual conference of international investigators in Tunis, were responsible for his inability to attend the festival. He said: “My absence was particularly regrettable, because I had planned to make up for my failure to turn up for the immediate prior edition.

Things That Turns Men Off

 

Five things that surprisingly could be a turn off for men

Second-guessing your thoughts, your instincts
Some women avoid communicating and expressing their feelings and thoughts. They expect men to read their minds and guess their thoughts, which is not always possible. And when they fail they receive the cold shoulder for not playing the guessing game right. Nothing is more annoying for men then a woman who will just not say what she wants but expect you to read the ‘signs’. Another thing that really gets to men is some women assuming that men know what they want them to do. Saying one thing and doing just the opposite just confuses things even more for men. So, play it straight and just speak up, it leaves no room for miscommunication or misunderstandings. Continue reading “Things That Turns Men Off”

Why Séx Should Be After Marriage

 

True love waits. If a boy or girl truly loves you, they will want the best for you. They will not want you to suffer fear of disease, unwanted pregnancy and the psychological difficulties of premarital séx. They will want to experience love with you only in the very best place of all – the love nest of marriage.

1,Séx is a powerful force that can destroy if not used properly. Like atomic power, séx is the most powerful creative force given to man. When atomic power is used correctly it can create boundless energy; when it is used in the wrong way it destroys life. Séx is the same kind of powerful force. Séx is a gift from God to give us the greatest pleasure, to help in creating a deep companionship with one’s spouse and for procreation of the next generation. But if you play with this powerful force outside the bounds of marriage, it destroys you and those close to you. Continue reading “Why Séx Should Be After Marriage”
