Arts That Speak: From Africa to the World with Love

The beauty of Africa has stood the test of time after stumbling through rough waters like slavery, colonialism, and modern day politically engineered civil wars. One would be tempted to think that with the destruction of Africa’s original heritage, the authenticity of these peoples will be wiped clean by the evil masking her history. Being a peace loving people, Africans have always tried to bring something new to the world stage although most of these breathtaking talents almost always never get the recognition they deserve since most of the citizens of Africa are now slaves to the western brands. Nevertheless,…

Spectacular Bamboo Craft from Bafut by AMBEBI ALBERT CHE

At a time of duress, at a time of  emotional explosion, at a time of unfathomable pain, one thing remains untouched; craft. The beauty of man becomes unreasonably selfish when he lets the darkness in him overshadows craftsmanship. Our generation has experienced faults and folds of events that are enough to make the tides of our history sanguinary. To say the least, the Darwinian theories on evolution have proven true from one generation to the next, and it has always been the survival of the fittest. In this trying time, very few of our kind have stood their grounds, they…

What Does Makeup Say About You?

Does the amount of makeup you wear communicate your attitude to casual sex? Why do women wear makeup? Human behavior is complex and there are likely a number of reasons, but it is probably uncontroversial to suggest that by far the most important is to increase attractiveness. Many research studies have shown that women wearing makeup are judged more attractive by both male and female raters. This is probably because makeup exaggerates the femininity of the face (the natural color of the lips and eyes is darker compared to the surrounding skin in women than it is in men) or because…

237 Fashion Industry in a 2017 Vista

Cameroon’s Fashion Industry Being perfect will seem farfetched to many, but to the keen observer, that’s where the 237 Fashion Industry is heading to. In the not too distant past, many of the designers making wave across the country today were just ordinary tailors. With evolution hitting us hard in series of shock waves, survival of the fittest set in and everyone hard to follow the wind of change. Social media, rise of new talents, introduction of new technologies, changes in taste and fashion, domination of the continent by neighboring countries, etc., together, changed the perception of Cameroonians towards tailoring.…

Breaking free from the tyranny of the password we lived under in 2017 and beyond

  When I lost access to my Google account (when I lost my password) recently, it left a gaping hole in my digital life and showed me just how tenuous the link to our online world can be. One thing I learned from the story I wrote last week about my experience was that I was far from alone. I got more than a dozen emails and tweets from folks who had been similarly locked out of Google, Facebook or Amazon Prime, and couldn’t figure out how to find their way back. It raises a valid question about identity itself…

Peeing Before Or After Sex: An Expert Breaks The Myth Once And For All

The answer may surprise you: UTIs stirs up the mind. GETTY IMAGES Orignal post: https://www.womenshealthmag.com/sex-and-love/pee-before-or-after-sex Sexual folklore says that vagina-havers must dutifully pee after sex, if they want to avoid urinary tract infections. Basic intuition, meanwhile, says we should probably pee before, if we don’t want to be uncomfortable and distracted. But Mother Nature calls when she calls. And if we were able to have more control over timing, things like long car trips and airplane window seats would likely be less inconvenient, bladder-straining experiences. Yet here we are.Either way, most of the chatter surrounding bathroom trips before or after sex…
