MILK FOR THE CHILD FUND

Image
Would you give milk to a famished child?
Milk is very essential to life growth and development. Everyone needs milk. Much as it is important, there are children who do not even get the cheapest yet most valuable type of milk which is the breast milk. Several reasons can be given for this. As a result, their physical growth is affected, mental development is retarded. Lament 4:4 says “The tongue of the sucking child cleaveth to the roof of his mouth for thirst: the young children ask bread, and no man breaketh it unto them” (KJV). Do you know there are some children who do not have access to Daily milk? It is not because they are in remote places or out of communication coverage. The only reason is that they cannot afford it. Would you be used of God to give such children the “Milk” needed for spiritual growth? A copy of Daily milk (now in full color) is N350 The 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, 1000 or more copies you pay for will be distributed free to such children. This way, you would have he…

This Is Why You Should Stop Using Deodorant

Image
If you’re like most American women, your typical morning routine includes a shower, brushing and flossing, and wrapping it all up in a bow with the application of a swipe or spray of deodorant. That’s before we even start with hair and makeup. In fact, a whopping 95 percent of Americans regularly use deodorant, which has made the deodorant business an $18 billion industry.

While few of us could ever imagine walking out the door without putting on deodorant, there is some compelling evidence that shows that not only is deodorant unnecessary for many, the use of deodorants and antiperspirants can even be dangerous to your health. I know, giving up deodorant or antiperspirant sounds unimaginable, but consider what scientists are discovering about their use.

The advent of the deodorant industry is relatively recent

First, let’s take a little look back on the history of deodorants and antiperspirants.

Deodorants and antiperspirants, while often dumped into the same category, are not the same …

Democracy, Biafra and a sense of history by Reuben Abati

Image
Here’s another interesting piece from former Presidential Spokesman, Reuben Abati.

It is sad that many Nigerians today talk glibly about the possibility of a coup or of military intervention in politics. They make it seem as if this democracy is something we can exchange for something else. We need to be reminded, as we celebrate democracy day 2017, how we got to this very moment, and how precious democracy is to us as a sovereign people.

From 1966 to 1999 (with the short break of civilian rule from 1979 – 1983) the military dominated the political landscape in Nigeria. It was eighteen years ago yesterday when our country returned to civilian rule.

The military practically overstayed their welcome. The first military coup in Nigeria was in January 1966, followed by the counter-coup of July 1966, and then the civil war of 1967-70 which turned Nigeria into a military theatre more or less as the Federal forces engaged the Biafran secessionists in a fratricidal war that resulted in the loss…

5 Health Benefits Of Fasting

Image
Fasting refers to not taking either food, drink, or both by yourself with no force, for a particular period of time. It could be done partially for some certain kind of food or as totally in which no food or liquid is consumed for a day or a few days.

If you can’t skip food for a day, give up coffee or sweets, here are top reasons to fast.

Detoxification:
This is a normal body activity when the body neutralizes or gets rid of any type of toxins in the various organs like the colon, liver, lungs, or
skin . During fasting, the body turns to the fat deposits for energy, which releases chemicals from the fatty reserves and results in the removal of these chemicals through these organs.

The Harmful Effects of Sleeping In A Bra..Every Woman Must Know This

Image
Bra is an abbreviation of the word “brazier.”

A bra is worn to support the br**sts, provide modesty and increase the sense of security a women feels. It temporarily affects the shape of the br**sts, such as uplifting them to create a cleavage. In the 1930s, a boyish look was fashionable, so bras were worn to flatten the chest. For larger women, it also provides welcome control. However, there has been a strong dialogue about the harmful effects of wearing a bra, especially during sleep.


Restlessness

Wearing a bra can be irritating for some women at the best of times, so sleeping could enhance this feeling. Women who sleep on their back may feel the bra catch press into their skin, causing discomfort. An underwire bra could also dig into the underside of the chest tissue, causing scratching or red grooves. The effect of these problems is waking through the night and continuous discomfort.

Weakened Ligaments
Although support is a primary reason to wear a bar, it can actually be adverse to a…

“My Babe Now Acts Cold To Me, How Do I Turn The Situation Around?”

Image
She no longer comes to my place anymore. I’m confused [because] even when I call her, she sounds dull and tired.

My name is Chike, [and] for some days now my relationship with my girlfriend has been cold.
She sounds like she’s no longer interested but she always say I’m angry with her.
She no longer comes to my place anymore. I’m confused even when I call her she sounds dull and tired.
I really love her and I don’t want to lose her. What should I do?
I feel the best the first/best thing to do is to watch the way you speak or act to her. Whatever is being said to make her feel that you are angry with her needs to be stopped.
You need to always make her feel safe and happy; not scared and worried. That could be why she is acting cold to you.
If, however, you have been gentle, kind and loving to her as your mail suggests, then, this matter seems pretty straight forward.
All you mentioned are the signs you see or notice when someone has lost interest in a relationship.
So you are quite right with…
