Fashion police:Cute or not?

Can you rock this dress?

Stress can lead to mental health disorders.

distressed man
The focus of this discourse is that the human mind, with its limited coping facilities, is at the center of all these challenges. In Africa, we mourn the dead and even mount big ceremonies in their memories, but no care is instituted for the mental health challenges of survivors of road and air accidents as well as suicide bomb attacks.
Nigeria has one of the largest and gallant army of soldiers who have fought to keep our nation together but with no adequate care for the attendant mental distress they live with, consequent of combat experiences. Survivors of armed robbery attacks have considerable mental distress which has made some families to abandon their new buildings for rented apartments.
 There is a whole  family of psychiatric disorders traceable to exceptionally stressful life events; and, depending on the duration and peculiarity of symptom, there is  the acute stress disorder and post traumatic stress disorder. Basic symptoms include disturbed concentration, disorientation, emotional numbness, anger, panic anxiety and despair, among others.
Post traumatic stress disorder has the listed symptoms but in addition has emotional numbness and blunting, detachment from others, re-experiencing symptoms when such persons involuntarily relive aspects of the traumatic experience in a very vivid and distressing way as flashbacks in which the person acts or feels as if the events were reoccurring, nightmares and intrusive images from the traumatic event, just as some actually avoid activities and situations reminiscent of the event.
Men experience more traumatic events than women, but the women experience higher impact events. The critical challenge in recognising this disorder is that the clinical picture is often marked by substance abuse and depressive illness. The view of a layman is that traumatic events cannot fully explain this abnormal mental state, but literature and clinical practice have established a spatial relationship between these events and the occurrence of these disorders.  The experience for those directly involved or witnesses carry a possibility of actual or threatening death or serious injury or threats to the physical integrity of the self and others. We should realise that survivors of traumatic events require mental health management and should be appropriately referred.
Our culture and religious orientation encourage the suppression of the emotional experience, thereby militating against a speedy recovery. Untrained counsellors get them to deny the reality of their feelings which impairs the principle of “working through” the trauma. The Federal Government needs to urgently incorporate mental health programme in the rehabilitation of the survivors of suicide bomb attacks, in addition to economic empowerment and social repositioning for those who have suffered significant handicaps as a result of the crisis.
This is important because economic deprivation and loss of social role functioning are potent factors of poor recovery. The amnesty programme being proposed cannot be successfully implemented unless a preliminary rehabilitation of survivors of the attacks is undertaken.
The ministry of defence should have a strong mental health programme to cater for soldiers, both serving and those retiring. Cases of rape should be promptly reported, not just for prosecution but for timely rehabilitation.
Our state ministries of health should be at the center of public health campaigns in managing survivors of disasters, as they have input in disaster management effort.
In conclusion, the relevance of the mental health professionals in primary health care is undisputable, especially for public enlightenment.

An ESUT student drags EFCC to court

Enugu-  A university student, Ifeanyi Okoye, on Monday dragged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to a Federal High Court in Enugu for alleged character assassination.

Okoye, of Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT), filed the suit alleging character assassination and a breach of his fundamental human rights.

The counsel to the plaintiff, Ralph Nnamu, said his client was arrested by the EFCC at a cyber café where he was sourcing information for his postgraduate project.

Nnamu said that on Jan. 21, 2011, operatives of the EFCC stormed the cyber café and whisked his client away to unknown destination.
He said that the operatives alleged that his client defrauded one foreign firm located in London, Global Ventures, of N10 million.

``It is unfortunate that up till now the EFCC is yet to furnish this court with clear evidence showing that my client truly committed the crime he was accused of.

``He has been going to the cyber café for his project work since his enrolment as a post graduate student.

``I don’t know where the EFCC sourced their information which they relied upon to prosecute my client,” he said.

The counsel to the EFCC, Ethelbert Onunze, said it was a case that did not require much legal tussle.
He said the case was simple and straight forward as far as cases associated with cyber crime were concerned.
``The operatives of the EFCC acted on an alert by a concerned citizen who had been furnishing the commission with the activities of the plaintiff at the cyber café on weekly basis.

``The accused heinously defrauded the foreign firm of the sum of N10 million, claiming that he will supply them with raw materials for production of textiles.

``It was at the point of collecting the sum of N700 000 meant for the transportation of the said raw materials that the EFCC arrested him.

``The accused never worked or dealt with any firm here in Nigeria that was associated with the production of textile materials,” he said.

The presiding judge, Justice M.L. Shuaibu, adjourned the case till Oct. 9 for further hearing.

Inspirational quote for the day-Life is beautiful

 quote for the day

“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go.

The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soul-mate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything.

Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”

Micheal Jackson's sister,La Toya claims her brother's ghost is haunting his home.


La Toya Jackson claims a family bodyguard has heard a series of unexplained noises in the property,which she thinks can only be explained by the presence of her brother's spirit in the house.
She said: "He says that he hears someone tap dancing. Michael used to do that every Sunday for two hours. "When he told me I said 'You're kidding,'that made me want to know even more about hearing someone tap dance over a certain part of the house."We go up there and no one's up there ... just tap dancing."And the dog barks at his room, the window, every single night at the same time ... the dog doesn't even know that that's Michael's room, and the security didn't know ... so it's weird."
And La Toya insists she has also felt a "presence" that she thinks is the late King of Pop - who died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 - even though she has no proof.
She told Good Day New York: "It's the strangest thing. You feel something, like,thick around you or behind you and you're wondering ... You don't see anything, but you feel a presence.
"It's very interesting because it is there,
it's definitely there."

Love quote for the day

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you.
 When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. 
 There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you.
 You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”

Signs a woman would make a great wife

Many men have ended up in making their girlfriends wives,and their wives,girlfriends.


There's a huge difference between a girlfriend and a wife.Marriage  is a  life-term institution  and can be destructive if it is embarked on with the wrong person. You have to be absolutely sure that the woman in your life is someone you’ll be happy spending time with every day of your life, forever. The signs are;
  •  She’s Dependable
            A great wife should be someone you can trust and rely on.  She should be someone who will support  her man no matter what, someone you know you can count on, come rain, come shine.
  •  She’s Respectful
Disrespect is one of the major causes of marital dysfunction. The woman you decide to marry should respect you no matter what. She should respect your family and your friends, even if she doesn’t like them. She should be a respectful person all round.
  •  She’s Humble
A proud woman will encourage grudges and nothing destroys relationships faster than malice. The ideal wife should be able to apologize even when she isn’t in the wrong.
  •  She’s emotionally stable
The woman you decide to marry should be stable emotionally and otherwise. An emotionally unstable woman can’t handle the pressures of marriage. She should be mature and know how to handle situations without constantly losing her cool. You don’t want to marry a woman who will break down in tears over every little challenge.

Facts about Mercy Johnson

Nollywood actress Mercy Johnson Ozioma  hails from Okene  in Kogi State. She is the fourth child in a family of seven. She watched Genevieve Nnaji in the movie titled Sharon Stone and decided tht she wanted to become a Nollywood actress. In 2001 she approached a dear friend for assistance to feature in a movie, but was unsuccessful in securing a role despite a year of constantly frequenting the National Theatre.
Mercy's first starring role was in 2002 in a movie titled 'The Maid' by Kenneth Nnebue. She played the lead role and has been on a meteoric rice ever since featuring in hundreds of African movies

Girl Vs Woman

This comparison of girl vs woman has gone viral on Facebook,just thought to share it
1. A girl knows how to demand. A woman knows how to contribute.

2. Girls complain too often. A woman will observe for a while, and then call her man's attention to the matter arising.

3. Girls can spend 5k on ice cream & make-ups. A woman can manage 5k on cooking for a week.

4. A girl will wanna keep up with trends. A woman will wanna consider her man's progress.

5. A girl will never ask how he manages. Caring after him is a woman's priority.

6. A girl will measure her man's worth by the weight of his pocket. A woman will measure her man's worth by his level of Wisdom, the fear of God and how disciplined he can be towards finances.

7. A girl is naturally selfish, stubborn, and short sighted. A woman is sacrificial, loyal, future oriented and family minded.

8. A girl wants everything now. A woman waits until they can both attend to their needs as at when possible.

9. A girl is not considerate. A woman helps her man to plan.

You definitely MUST grow from being a girl to a woman to be able to handle a home. U can't still be a girl and expect a man...., of cos you'll get a boy.
How true is this?
