Health officials have issued a warning over a new strain of super gonorrhoea that is resistant to two crucial antibiotics – including a last-ditch resort. In the first recorded case worldwide, an unidentified English man – who was having regular sex with a woman in the UK – caught the STI from another woman during his travels to south-east Asia earlier this year. Public Health England revealed his gonorrhoea was resistant to ceftriaxone and azithromycin – the two drugs that the World Health Organization recommends to be given to patients with the STI. The Government-run agency has issued an alert regarding the possible spread of the bug – which proved resistant to recommended treatment. A PHE report read: ‘This is the first global report of high-level azithromycin resistant N. gonorrhoea which is also resistant to ceftriaxone.’ It added that it has now ‘formed an incident management team’ to coordinate the investigation and contain the spread of the superbug.
In Ghana, everyone is a health specialist. Complain of any illness and everyone and their grandmother swears they know of something that can cure it. Regular checkups are not a normal thing in Ghana because people feel they know even more than the doctors and would rather drink a concoction made by someone whose child … Read more

Since Netflix expanded worldwide early last year, Ghanaians have had access to some excellent original content and a range of TV series and movies. However, Netflix ran into a problem. Many series and movies have already been syndicated to local TV here, and they don’t have the rights to broadcast this content. Of course, there are ways to get around this, and access the full catalogue of shows available in the US and elsewhere. Here is how to change Netflix to American catalogue. Use a VPN A virtual private network (VPN) is basically software that routes your internet connection through a foreign server. Many people use it for security purposes – it blocks hackers and any other surveillance from tracking your online activity. After all, if they don’t know where you are, they can’t identify who you are. While proxies do the same, VPNs are more popular since they encrypt your data, adding an extra layer of protection from identity theft. Since this software routes your connection through a server that can be outside of the country – in America, for example – it can trick Netflix into thinking that you’re in the US, and you’ll get access to the full catalogue. Not long after Netflix expanded, however, they took measures to stop this.
The World Health Orgainzation (WHO) has issued a report warning about the growth of antibiotic resistant gonorrhoea, mainly due to an increase in oral s*x and a decrease in condom use. According to the organization, this dangerous combination is creating a super resistant strain of the bacteria which could soon become nearly impossible to treat.
Quiet recently I was at Kaneshie and had to head to Kasoa from there. I asked some passers-by who directed me to an awaiting vehicle at the station. Guess what. I went to sit in without asking for any further clarification from the passengers and slept off.
After about an hour, someone tapped me on the shoulder. The conductor was asking for my fare. I just paid and slept again.
After about 30 minutes, the conductor tapped me on the shoulder. “We have reached.” I opened my eyes to see clearly. “Ah! Where are we!?” I wondered. “Madina!” he exclaimed.
“Ah! I am going to Kasoa,” I explained. He retorted, “Well… this is a Madina car.” In awe, I heaved, “But I thought…”
Countless times in this life, we have assumed that others should think what we are thinking― in our marriages or relationships, workplaces, every aspect of our lives. Fact is, the best service we can sometimes render ourselves is to be certain that what we are thinking is indeed what we should think. Assumptions are sometimes deceptions.
Ask. Don’t just assume. Be certain. Don’t only presume. Others can’t always discern our thoughts. We can’t be so sure that what we thought was what they thought, too. Many hearts have needlessly been broken on the altar of assumptions. A husband thought his wife should have known better when the wife was also assuming he should have known best.
Getting over a broken heart is no mean task, trust me. It’s no easy task to overlook broken trust or disappointment by a loved one. Whatever it is, you need your life back. I hope these few tips help you out. 1. Pray for strength to forgive. Forgive he/she who broke your heart no matter … Read more
Each church is full of different characters–and it being a house of God does not really do anything to some of the most annoying and pathetic human characters. Of course, it’s the same people you meet on the street who converge at our churches, burdened with a high expectation to suddenly act different or become … Read more
A newly released, multi faceted global study into the alcohol consumption rates of males and females have found that in terms of equality between the s*xes, there’s one gap being closed rapidly – and that’s the rate at which both consume alcohol. It has been the preserve of men for a long time but the study shows that in the modern era, the drinking levels between the two have closed to near negligible levels.
Every day, we get to learn more about how our lifestyles can either wreck or protect the health of our heart and we all know it’s never too early to start thinking about your heart and taking steps to care for it.
It is based on this background that Johannes Hinreich von Borstel, prospective cardiologist and former paramedic who also happens to be the author of a new book Heart: The Inside Story of Our Body’s Most Important Organ has revealed some of the surprising ways to keep your heart beating healthily from his own experience treating patients with heart conditions and from research findings.
Ghanaian researcher Dr Ato Duncan says he’s the saviour mankind has been waiting for, the one man who cures the troubling ailment known as Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The syndrome, developed from the Human Immuno-deficiency Virus (HIV) – refers to the final stages of the virus’ development when the human’s immune system is virtually destroyed and the patient dies from a variety of otherwise harmless infections.
For many whose perspective about the state of Ghana is obtained from a far distance, the West African country is placed to be swiftly developing–as some of the biggest brand names in the hospitality business have made giant entries into the capital, Accra, albeit, swimming in a comforting lack of competition pool.
There’s a huge non-befitting buzz about some of the places that somewhat are used to validate the assumption that Ghana has “arrived” or is truly developing and two of such places are the famous MovenPick and Kempinski Hotels, situated not far from each other at the heart of Accra.
Local conversations about these two places are extensively flattering but to me, the architectures are short of the elegance the words compliment. They are just modern hotels, just as you would find on the streets of Paris, Barcelona, New York, Copenhagen and several of the world’s developing capitals.
A new experimental compound in the fight against malaria is showing great promise in animal trials, preventing the host from contracting the parasites during the period of the study. Scientists from the Massachussets Institute of Technology and Harvard carried out the clinicals, using a compound that managed to stave off the malaria infection that’s all too deadly in many parts of the world.
A new research has found that millions of people are putting their own lives in danger by eating late at night–as late night meals put the body on ‘high alert’ instead of winding down.
Heart experts have advised that adults should never eat within two hours of bedtime –ideally, nothing after 7pm.
The blood pressure of a healthy person drops at least 10 percent when the individual goes to sleep but a study by Dokuz Eylül University in Turkey which used over 700 people has found that eating 2 hours of bedtime keeps blood pressure stably high.
To some of us we always look forward to having a goodnight’s sleep and this new research’s findings is going to give us more reasons to hit our beds at night
Findings from a study conducted by the University of Freiburg led by psychiatrist Christoph Nissen, indicates that sleep resets your brains memory connections, leaving it fresh to make new ones the next day.
The study which was conducted with 20 students between the ages of 19 and 25 years went on to reveal that when we get to the end of the day our brains ‘are saturated with things’ like the conversations, images and facts absorbed in the 18 hours or more that we stayed awake such that the connections in our brains are ‘strong, tense and unable to absorb any more’ making an individual cranky and unable to think clearly
Call it a moral booster or progress monitor, a new research says it doesn’t matter what you call it–if you post your fitness routine, then you may be suffering from a psychological problem. A new research from the Brunel University in London looked at why so many people share every workout photos on social media–they came to the conclusion that there’s an underlying problem. Per the research, as reported by BusinessInsider, “People who are always keen on documenting their gym activities (or every time you simply go for a good, old-fashioned run) tend to be narcissists. According to the researchers, the primary goal is to boast about how much time you invest in your looks. Apparently, these status updates also earn more Facebook likes than other kinds of posts.”
One of the biggest color trends this summer is something slightly unexpected: it’s yellow.
I say unexpected because yellow isn’t a color that you typically see everyone wearing. Yellow is bright, it’s loud, it’s in-your-face – it’s a bold color, and it’s not something you wear if you’re trying to play it safe.
I also know a lot of people who say that yellow isn’t flattering on them. As someone who loves wearing black, white, and brown, I’ve always felt the same way.
But then one year, I found myself buying a pretty yellow tank top to match a skirt I wanted to wear. I was honestly so worried about wearing the outfit, because it was a little out of my comfort zone, but it looked great! It ended up being one of my favorite outfits.
I cannot even begin to imagine myself in those medieval ages where people had to tire their fragile legs just to move from one destination to the other since the foot was if not the only means of transportation. Today, there is a lot more ways to convey goods and persons to and from their … Read more
