Over last weekend, while uploading contents to my social media handles, a valuable lesson was gained from trying to upload to my blog. I had successfully published the post and shared the link to my social media handles when I realized the image quality was poor. I was disturbed and went back to re-upload the images. For over an hour and a half, the same quality of images was given even after refreshing the web page repeatedly, switching networks, and sitting positions. I finally succumbed to the thought of leaving the image like that, I had logged out of blogger and as I stood up to go about other activities I felt disappointed with myself.

And boom, I had my eureka moment; image resolution was perfectly loaded. I sighed in joy and in retrospective, I understood that t


In marking the World Cancer Day #february4 ✴️ Cancer is a disease of global spread, it affects all socioeconomic groups and according to WHO, 70% of all cancer-related deaths occur in low and middle-income countries. ✴️ Generally speaking, cancer can affect anyone the young and old, the rich and poor, men, women, and children. ❇️ I trust you no longer have the mindset that Cancer is a disease of the rich does not affect the poor. It has been assumed that some set of diseases are for the elites while some are for the lower class. ⛑  The main constant in cancers is their alteration of DNA. The cells are by definition abnormal. The commonality is that on top of being abnormal they are also able to be masked from the immune system's ability to kill them off. 🆘 Early detection of cancer greatly increases the chances of successful treatment. Most people don't have a real concept of cancer as a set of diseases that can be diagnosed and treated, some assume it is a death

Two days ago, I went to get a bag of satchet water and as I sat down waiting for my change and water from the seller, I observed he was agitated. Upon collecting both items, I throw in a big smile and asked Oga Viko, as we call him, why you dey vex na? He answered saying, 'na one of my friend dey vex me jor! wetin dey pain me say I go still forgive her', by this, he meant that he is pissed with her but just have to bring himself to forgive her. I asked him, what her offense was? He replied I have known imabong for over 18years, and the only time she calls me is when she needs a favor, and I will agree to help most times because I know if I don't help her, God will surely raise another person to meet the need; so why not do it.

Either as an employer, employee, student, self-employed, or stay at home worker, daily you are in contact with harmful organisms, and toxins that pose a threat to your wellbeing. Detoxification is the cleansing and nourishing the body from the inside out, by removing and eliminating toxins, then feeding your body with healthy nutrients. Our body has a natural detoxification system that functions to clear these toxins, but you can increase its efficiency by timely nutritional and lifestyle changes. These toxins are in your water, food, and the air you breathe; it’s tough trying to get away from them, but you can have a defense against them. They include metals, chemicals, pollutants, artificial food additives, pesticides, and herbicides. SIGNS THAT YOUR BODY IS SCREAMING FOR A DETOX §    You frequently feel tired and stressed. §    You experience unexplained headaches, mental confusion, and lack of enthusiasm. §    You repetitively feel colds and contract infec

This occurs when the loss of body fluid especially water is higher than the amount taken in. Water is 75% of our weight, the basal solvent, and carrier of minerals, vitamins, proteins, fats, hormones, etc. in our body.

Dehydration can occur at a mild and moderate level, both of which can be stabilized by the intake of fluid; but at a severe level, immediate medical care is needed as it can lead to death. Causes / Risk Factors of Dehydration Diarrhea and vomiting No access to safe drinkable water Heat exposure and excessive exercise High blood sugar / Diabetes.
