Tech and Social Media Giants

February 13, 2020 0
The 21st century: An Era characterized by science and tech innovations aimed at enhancing the human standards of living. Technology has helped with the birth of the internet and in turn, Social Media.

With the dawn of this new tech Era and the internet, people get more and more involved in digital trends, most precisely - social media networks. An average person spends 30 minutes to 4 hours a day, according to Adrienne Matei of The Guardian - shuffling from one social media network, to the other.

Social media lets users share contents, in the form of an open diary, events, creative contents, products - just any content deemed fit by the user, which certainly follows the user guideline of each social media they choose to enteract with.

In every 'game', there always exists a giant(s), and then, the competition(s). In the digital media, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn - considerable are to be called the giants of this 'game'.

They possess an enormously impressive amount of users - users that businesses are willing to pay however big it takes, just to seize the attention of these users, and get their brands and/or products to their fore.

Brands recognize the importance of time. Yeah! You're right - the 30 minutes to 4 hours an average person is willing to spare for social media a day. They know how much, time and attention is worth. That's why they are perpetually creative with their social media marketing strategies, and always try to tap into new and evolving trends.

Social media influencers play a vital role in the digital media. They're practically just individuals who have access to a large audience and have established credibility and trust, over a period of time, through their interactions with their audience. They're rather specific to a niche.

The help of social media influencers, cannot, by any means, be over emphasized. Getting a content to go viral can be as easy as just a flick of a button. They possess, most of the times, loyal fans, who are willing to go extra miles to get a given goal achieved. With this much power they weild, getting recommendations - that can enormously increase sales and awareness for brands, are easy-peasy.

Moreso, brands can choose to go the traditional way, by just getting their products out there through the regular promotion procedure on every social media platform.

However, just like every other thing that comes from ones and zeroes, social media networks weild their algorithm. Learning how to beat or follow these algorithms, can catapult your business to a great height.

Social media algorithms are basically an artificial intelligence based way of sorting posts in users' feeds, which relies on importance, instead of time of publication. These bots learn users' interests overtime, and therefore arranges contents, based on presumed importance, and prioritizes it on their feed. The mastery of these sequencial patterns of different social media platforms, can overwhelm you with success and make you stand out - just like a super hero.

Inside Instagram

Instagram, owned by the bigger giant, Facebook, is a place where glamour pays, and probably clout et fake life - yeah! You can add those. It's constantly updated with photos and videos of dapper looking men, colorful flower-like beauties radiating from ladies who love to pose for the camera. It's a place where almost every user seeks validation. It's safe to say that it's meant for youngsters, hipsters and everyone who loves to flow with the trend.

Instagram has a way of rewarding users who constantly use IG stories, IGTV and systematically also uses carousel. It has a history of helping with reach and engagement. Posting constantly and on the right time, does its magic as well. Importantly, studying the background reports and performances of your page, understanding them and finding more creative ways to go around it will surprise you with success.

Instagram Users, have short attention span. So, unless you're capturing their attention and interests, within the first 5 seconds - especially on videos, you're not gonna see no success. You know what? Instagram bots takes note of that as well. It's going to do well, to put that post where it belongs. Exactly! Oblivion. That's where!

Instagram is good for a broad spectrum of markets and audiences. It's where practically everything trends. Brands pay huge for Ads on this platform.

Inside Facebook

The father of the 'new trend'. Founded in 2004 by Mr. Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook has grown over the years, to an unimaginable height.

Unlike it's daughter platform, Instagram, it allows for less trendy, old fashioned and less colorful presence. It opens its warm hands to everyone, no matter how trendy, old fashioned or private you may be.

It hit a whooping 2 billion active users in 2017. A milestone not every platform has achieved. It's useful for digital marketing and it however, encompasses a wide veriety of communities.

A variety of features present on Facebook, are rather absent on Instagram. For example, the presence of groups, it's link friendly nature, it's more concise and advanced feel - more like a hosting platform.

Facebook feels more calm and accommodating, with less noise and more value. An old fashioned person will feel rightly at home on Facebook.

Inside LinkedIn

Unlike other social media platforms, LinkedIn is made for professionals. It's more like the combination of a job board and social media. In the words of Microsoft, LinkedIn is considered a 'professional network.' It was acquired by Microsoft in 2016. A move that prompted one Silicon Valley expert to assert that 'LinkedIn will be, to recreate the connective tissue for enterprises.’

This is so because, Microsoft can now effortlessly embed LinkedIn with Skype, its email system and other enterprise products.

Most professionals prefer LinkedIn, apparently because of it's professional and drama free environment.

Nevertheless, LinkedIn has been a perfect platform for job seekers. According to statistics made available by and delivered by, a whooping 122 million people received an interview through LinkedIn, with 35.5 million having been hired by a person they connected with on the site.

According to Hubspot, LinkedIn is 277% more effective at generating leads than Facebook and Twitter.

Inside YouTube

YouTube is the second most visited sites in the world - according to Alexa. It's a Social Media platform made available for users who'd like to share video contents only - no matter how lengthy they may be.

You're being welcomed by a combination of red and black colors, plus the nicely placed 'recommended for you' videos - when you land on its home page.

It's home to billions of videos, both longevous and latest trendy videos. An estimated 300+ hours of videos are uploaded to YouTube per minute. And almost 5 billion videos are watched on this beast of a platform, every single day!

Google established this platform 2005, and since then, it has proved to be a massive beast of video contents.

This platform is especially good for video marketing as it blends perfectly with its environment.

YouTube is the social media platform that users are able to earn some bucks for their contents.

Social media has helped businesses grow, helped increase leads, helped shoot so many individuals to fame, helped us with connecting with family and friends etc.

It's no new fact that social media has helped humans in multiple ways. Ways we never envisioned - in their [social media] genesis. Tapping into this gold mine of a network is as vital as can be imagined.

Nevertheless, it's paramount to hire the right social media manager for your business pages, if you want to get the best out of it. An individual who understands his/her ways around beating each SM's algorithms, flows with the latest trends and is passionate about what he/she does.

The Art of Farting - A Funny Personal Narrative!

October 30, 2019 0
I fart, you fart, everyone farts! Fart is a natural gift given to all by nature. Farting comes with a huge relief to whoever it is that's relieved of it. It doesn't fail however, to come off as a strike to the nose of anyone who may be within its striking range. A fart can come off as a loud, most often, harmless 'missile', or sometimes, as a soft 'lethal' gas.

When I was younger, I used to think girls never fart - that they were perfect creatures crafted by nature. Uh-uh! Don't judge me! We all were once in that naive stage of life. I bet most guys can attest to that, especially those we had some kind of crush on.

A quick flashback to let's say - five years ago. I was at the mall, I had just finished eating beans, plantain and egg, before going shopping. I bet you know what a 'disastrous' combination a meal that was? Well, I felt the urgent call of nature. It was the soft 'lethal' gas type. You know, you can somehow tell the type it was, just before it's released to the world.

So, I quickly chose a suitable aisle, an aisle with no one on it. I released this fart, the seemingly silent one. The release lasted for like a few seconds. It was this type that came off like a chain reaction. I'd mastered the art of releasing this nature's call over time, so this wasn't going to be a thing to worry about. "Hmm...", I exhaled in relief, and smiled as I walked far away from my 'weapon of destruction' haha! I subsequently headed out of that aisle like a king.

Within seconds, an unlucky couple walked right into that aisle - I think it was the cosmetics section. The random fragrance from the cosmetics on the counter had nothing on the smell from my fart. It didn't take long before I heard multiple exhalations from them. "I think a rat died somewhere in this aisle", the man complained to one of the staff at the mall.

I turned back with immediate effect and joined them in complaining about the said 'dead rat'. The 'dead rat' that oozed with smell on the cosmetics aisle. It was like a spell, I still can't understand my real motive for doing that. I told them that infact, the smell was too bad that I couldn't make up my mind on the body spray I was to buy - such evil! Haha!

As the conversation went on, I lost it to an uncontrollable laughter. They all turned and stared at me with so much confusion. They couldn't understand why I was laughing that much. The staff asked me, "oga is everything alright, this one you're laughing like this"? At that moment, I did what I couldn't believe I'd ever be able to do - what many humans never have the balls to do. I looked them all eyeballs to eyeballs and told them that I actually farted on that aisle - that infact, they've been inhaling my fart for the past few minutes.

At that point, they'd understood what brought about the hysterical laughter. They all dispersed with an apparent disgust. They couldn't get their eyes off me all through my shopping at that mall. I bet they probably were wondering how a human being could produce a fart with that much concentration - and with so much bravery.

Nevertheless, each time my eyes met with one of the trio while still in the mall - I made sure to give them a lovely smile - while they wouldn't hesitate to look elsewhere with disgust.

Just to give you a heads up, I was relieved of the loud harmless 'missile' kind of fart while writing this article. Haha! Fart. Get yourself relieved of that natural burden whenever you feel like it, but make sure not to be a burden to someone else's nose while at it.

Farts can be suppressed if you don't feel like it - unlike diarrhea stool that can not be suppressed. That one is the boss of them all! Well, that sounds like a topic for another day.

Do tell us what you think on the comment section.

Pole Dancing Robots Debuted In A Nightclub In France

September 02, 2019 0
In recent times, robots have been used as a replacement for the jobs formerly done by humans. However, we humans never thought robots as a replacement for pole dancers in nightclubs - but that is exactly what is happening in Nantes, France.

A total of two robot dancers, equipped with high heels and a CCTV camera for a head, has debuted at the SC-Club in the French city of Nantes, to celebrate its fifth anniversary.
The bots which were developed by a British artist, Giles Walker, concealed their metal bodies with some plastics from mannequins.

In reference to their CCTV camera heads, British robotics developer, Giles Walker, said the robots aimed to "play with the notion of voyeurism". This however, raised the question of "who has the power between the voyeur and the observed person".

He conceived the idea about 10 years ago, and has toured and loaned out the robots over the past few years. Despite the rise of robot work forces, club owner Laurent Roue said the new members of staff will not replace the 10 human dancers who currently perform there, instead saying it was a way of honouring the technology.

He said: "For us, it's a wink, a homage in a way to robotics. "We need something human, warmth, physical contact, and this is really putting together opposites." He added: "To each his own."

Types, Symptoms, Causes - All You Need To Know About Fibroid

September 02, 2019 0
Fibroid is a serious medical condition, prevalent in women. They are tumors which grows and develops in or on a woman’s uterus. These tumors sometimes, may tend to become quite enormous in size and cause severe abdominal pain, abdominal swelling and heavy periods. In some women, they cause no signs or symptoms at all. The growths are typically benign, or noncancerous.

The causes of fibroid, however, are currently still unknown to health researchers. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), about up to 80 percent of women have them by the age of 50. However, most women don’t have any symptoms and may never know they have fibroids.

Types of fibroid
The type of fibroid a woman develops depends on its location in or on the uterus.

Intramural fibroid

Intramural fibroid appears to be the most rampant or common type of this disturbing medical condition ― fibroid. These types appear within the muscular wall of the uterus. Intramural fibroid may grow so enormous to the point of stretching your womb.

Subserosal fibroid

Subserosal fibroids are known to form on the outside of your uterus, which is called the serosa. They may grow large enough to make your womb appear bigger on one side.

Pedunculated fibroid

Subserosal tumors can develop a stem, a slender base that supports the tumor. When they do, they’re known as pedunculated fibroids.

Submucosal fibroid

These types of tumors develop in the middle muscle layer, or myometrium, of your uterus. Submucosal tumors aren’t as common as the other types.

Causes fibroid

It’s currently still unclear why fibroid develop, but a bunch of factors are pointed to influence their development..


Estrogen and progesterone are the hormones produced by the ovaries. They cause the uterine lining to regenerate during each menstrual cycle and may stimulate the growth of fibroid.

Family history

Just like other medical conditions like seizures, diabetes etc; fibroid may run in the family. If your mother, sister, or grandmother has a history of this condition, you may develop it as well.


During pregnancy, there's an increase in the production of estrogen and progesterone in the body. These two hormones are pointed to help the flourished growth of Fibroid in the body.

Here are the outlined risk increasing factor for fibroid, that is, women who have one or more of these factors are more likely to develop fibroid:
  • Pregnancy
  • A family history of fibroid
  • Age of 30 or older
  • Africans
  • A high body weight

Symptoms of fibroid

The symptoms you notice depends mostly on the number of tumors you have, as well as the location and size in your body. For instance, submucosal fibroid may cause heavy menstrual bleeding and trouble conceiving.

If your tumor is very small or you’re going through menopause, you may not have any symptoms. Fibroids may shrink during and after menopause. This is because women undergoing menopause are experiencing a drop in their levels of estrogen and progesterone, hormones that stimulate fibroid growth.

Symptoms of fibroid may include:
  • Heavy bleeding between or during your periods that includes blood clots
  • Pain in the pelvis or lower back
  • Increased cramps during menstruation
  • Frequent urination
  • Noticeable pain while having sex
  • Longer lasting menstruation
  • Pressure or fullness in your lower abdomen
  • Noticeable abdominal bloating or swelling

5 Early Signs of Breast Cancer That Almost All Women Ignore!

August 28, 2019 0
Breast cancer has higher mortality rate than child birth and old age combined. This deadly disease affects one in eight women around the world ― and thousands of men. In 2016, it accounted for 30 percent of newly diagnosed cancers. Always going for screening or examining yourself can help in early detection of abnormal cells when it's still in it's early stages, which however, can increase your chances of survival. Mammograms are the best way to identify breast tumors early when they are easier to treat.
Breast cancer awareness goes far beyond knowing the statistics. It’s about active prevention, and being able to recognize the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, in hopes of detecting it in it's early stage.

The following five warning signs of breast cancer are ones that many women tend to shrug off, but recognizing them may be vital to saving your life.

1. A New Mole Or Change in an Existing Mole

Moles are mostly associated with skin cancer, however, they may also be linked to breast cancer. In one study, researchers followed 89,902 women  ages 40-65 years old, and noted their medical records over a period of 18 years. Researchers found that the women who had the most moles out of the group had a 13% higher risk of breast cancer than women who had no moles. If you notice a new mole, or any type of change in an existing mole, visit a health care professional.

2. A Cough or Hoarse Throat That Won’t Subside

Breast cancer can spread to the lungs, and it can be detected by a prolonged cough or hoarseness. Cancer spreads to the lungs in 60-70% of women who become terminally ill from breast cancer. The most common signs are shortness of breath and dry cough.

3. Changes in the Bladder or Bowels

Drying out the urethra is one of the changes that comes with hormonal changes, caused by breast cancer. These changes makes it difficult for you to control your bladder, when you're pressed. This is known as incontinence, and common signs include leaking urine during activities such as coughing, laughing, sneezing or exercising, experiencing sudden and urgent needs to urinate, and urination that takes longer than usual. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, make an appointment with your ASAP.

4. Fatigue 

Fatigue is common in breast cancer patients and survivors. Fatigue from cancer is not alleviated by sleep or rest. It’s typically very severe and often associated with high levels of distress, unrelated to amount of exertion. Cancer-related fatigue is often accompanied by other symptoms such as pain, sleep disturbance and depression.

5. Unexplained Back Pain 

Back pain is a common medical problem — so common that 8 out of 10 people will experience it at some point in lives. However, back pain can also be a significance that breast cancer tumors are forming. Back pain associated with breast cancer may feel like pressure on the ribs and spine, or pain in the upper back that feels like it’s coming from the bones.

August 28, 2019 0

You may want to feel that way for much longer time — stop! That's you nurturing negative energy.

9 Torture Methods Used In The Medieval Ages That Would Give You Goosebumps

August 27, 2019 0
Medieval Ages, mainly marked the growth of the power of nobles in the society. “Justice” those days meant only one thing, TORTURE. Ancient torture methods were so brutal that they often resulted in death of the accused.

Europe’s Medieval period lasted from the 5th to the 15th century. During this time, torture was often used to extract confessions, or obtain the names of accomplices or other information about crimes.
Laws and local customs did not impose limits on the treatment of prisoners or the extent to which torture could be inflicted. In fact, confessions were not considered genuine or sincere when so-called “light torture” was used.

I bring you 9 horrifying ancient torture methods that will send a chill down your spine, each more scary than the other.

1. Judas cradle or Judas chair:

Using ropes, a prisoner would be lowered above the pyramid-shaped “seat” with the point inserted into the anus or vagina. Victims would be tortured by intense pressure and stretching of the orifice, resulting in permanent damage.
In many cases, the victim would succumb to rips in the muscle tissue that would later become infected. Weights would be added to facilitate the effect, often resulting in death by impalement.

2. Breast ripper

Adultery in the medieval times didn’t have an easy escape, especially for women. As the name suggests, this device was used to tear off the breasts of the woman who was accused of adultery(or at times self-abortion). The tool was popular in the Free State of Bavaria (Germany) until the nineteenth century.

The ripper made of iron would be heated red hot before it’s used on the accused, it would then be placed on the exposed breasts the spikes would then be penetrated deep inside the skin. This in turn causes a large  chunks of flesh to come off and causes huge loss of blood. The victim either dies or remains degraced for life.

3. Saw torture

This was a form of execution in which a living person was sawed in half, either longitudinally or transversely, through the central body mass. This was done either by sawing the individual in half across or along the body length.

4. Pear of anguish:

This heinous contraption was used during the Middle Ages as a way to torture women who were accused of facilitating a miscarriage. It was also used to punish liars, blasphemers, and homosexuals. The device was inserted into one of the prisoner’s orifices — the vagina for women, the anus for homosexuals, and the mouth for liars and blasphemers (which is why it’s also known as the Choke Pear).

The device featured four metal leaves that’s slowly separated from each other as the torturer turns the screw at the top. The torturer could use it to tear the skin, or expand it to its maximal size to mutilate the victim. It rarely caused death, but was often followed by other torture methods.

5. Boiling

In 1532, Henry VII of England, made boiling a legal form of capital punishment. It began to be used for the murderers who used poison after the Bishop of Rochester’s cook, Richard Rice mixed poison in the porridge resulting in the death of two people.

A huge cauldron filled with tar, lead or oil would be brought to boil, the accused would then be placed inside the cauldron so that he would be cooked slowly, or placed in head in the boiling liquid.

6. Concrete shoes

Introduced by the American Mafia for the execution of their enemies, traitors. The victim’s feet is placed inside cinder blocks and wet cement would be poured inside it. When the cement dries up, the victim will then be thrown into a river or other deep water body to drown and never rise afterwards.

7. Iron chair

In medieval Europe, the Chair of torture was one of the most common ancient torture methods. The victim is made to sit on the chair and to avoid movement the victim’s wrists are tied to the chair and two bars would then be pushed against it till the spikes penetrates the flesh and the arm held firmly.
The idea of this type of a torture was to create psychological fear among the other victims, and easy extraction of confession.

8. Head crusher:

This is as self explanatory as the pictures and name appears. The device, which is basically a vise for the head, slowly crushes the skull and facial bones when the screw at the top is being turned. Even if the torturer stopped before death, permanent damage to the facial muscles and structure would occur.

9. The brazen bull:

This one is incredible in every way. So the bull is made of Bronze and you place the victim inside it. Then you build a fire under the bull and it heats up slowly cooking the victim alive.
The ‘mouth’ and inner piping of the bull was built in such a way that the screaming of the victim inside sounded like the bellowing of an angry bull. Interesting fact, the creator this device was considered so sadistic that he was killed by the very King who he’d created it to impress.

Here Are Some Causes Of White Tongue And How To Fix It!

August 26, 2019 0
A normal tongue is meant to be red in colour, so if your tongue has a different colour, then there obvious is a problem. The tongue is covered with papillae – small nodules on the tongue that give it a rough texture.

When food debris, bacteria and dead cells become lodged between inflamed papillae, white tongue occurs. It’s usually harmless and temporary, but it can also be an indication of an infection or a serious condition.

The most common cause of white tongue is dehydration. A dry mouth is a breeding ground for bacteria. Brushing your teeth and tongue less than twice a day increases your risk of developing white tongue. It can also be caused by an overgrowth of candida, which is a fungus that causes yeast infections or oral thrush.

Candida often lives inside the mouth. The problem arises when it accumulates. It can spread to the roof of the mouth, the gums, tongue, tonsils and the back of the throat. This creates white tongue, lesions, redness and even bleeding.

White tongue that cannot be scraped off and doesn’t go away after using antifungal treatments may be the result of a more serious condition. A white tongue accompanied by a sore throat may be symptoms of strep throat. White tongue can be caused by any of these factors:

  • Dehydration
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Illness or infection
  • Dry mouth
  • Fever
  • Reaction to certain medications, such as antibiotics or steroids
  • Candida yeast infection (oral thrush)
  • Smoking or tobacco use
  • Alcohol use
  • Spicy food such as habanero and jalepeno peppers
  • Congenital heart disease in adults

Natural Treatment for white tongue:

1. Baking Soda:

Baking soda is able to exfoliate the tongue, removing any residue that causes white tongue. It also helps maintain good pH levels in the mouth by neutralizing acids. Simply mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda with lemon juice until it creates a paste. Add the mixture to your toothbrush, then brush your tongue and mouth.

2. Coconut Oil Pulling

Coconut oil pulling is a great way to remove bacteria from the mouth. Research has shown it to be just as effective as mouthwash at improving bad breath and reducing the microorganisms that can cause bacteria buildup in the mouth. Swish 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in your mouth for 10-20 minutes then spit it out in the trash. Rinse your mouth with warm water then brush your teeth as usual.

3. Sea Salt:

Thanks to the natural antibacterial properties of sea salt, gargling can help eliminate bacteria in the mouth that causes white tongue. The coarse texture of sea salt also works as an exfoliate. Combine sea salt and water to create a mouthwash. Use the mouthwash, then brush your teeth and tongue with the sea salt.

4. Aloe Vera Juice

  Aloe Vera has natural antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s commonly used to heal infections and treat burns. It can be used to remove dead cells and destroy bacteria in the mouth. Swish 1 tablespoon of Aloe Vera juice in your mouth 2-3 times daily until the coating his disappeared.

5. Probiotics

Oral thrush and white tongue can be caused by an imbalance of healthy bacteria in your gut. Eating probiotic foods helps to balance your bacteria and treat health conditions related to candida. Probiotic foods include, unsweetened yogurt, dark chocolate, pickles etc

UNBELIEVABLE! This is what your home will look like when you live on Mars.

August 24, 2019 0
For quite a long time, living in Mars has been a topic on a lot of people's lips. It's sometimes considered a myth in some part of the world by some people. To me, Mars is a place worth going, I mean think of the adventure of floating in space crafts, having to be in a place far from the boring usual. It's just way too much to imagine.

If you have always had retirement plans prior, there’s a chance that, sooner or later, you might have to move further than you were thinking. As far as Mars.

On Thursday, to mark the launch of its new six-part docudrama Mars, National Geographic will unveil the first ever Mars show home, giving earthlings an idea of what their life could look like on the Red Planet.
Set in the not-so-distant year of 2037, in Valles Marineris, a vast system of canyons on the Mars equator, the igloo-shaped structure could be the home of your future.

It depicts a house built using recycled spacecraft parts and Martian soil, called regolith, which has been microwaved into bricks. Some parts of the home are recognisable – kitchen, bedroom – but there are core differences that are vital for human survival.

We don’t think of our houses as things that keep us alive, but on Mars your dwelling will be a survival centre

As the Martian atmosphere is around one hundredth as thick as the Earth’s, people will need permanent shielding from the sun; society will move largely indoors. Most buildings will be connected by underground tunnels and the houses won’t have windows. The homes will have simulated solar lighting, or natural light that has been refracted several times.

Walls will need to be 10 to 12ft thick, to protect people from dangerous cosmic rays that can pass through six feet of steel, and a double air-locked entrance will keep the home pressurised.

“We don’t think of our houses as things that keep us alive, but on Mars your dwelling will be a survival centre,” says Stephen Petranek, author of How We’ll Live on Mars and a consultant on Mars.
This is not just the stuff of sci-fi. “Ten to 20 years from now there will certainly be people on Mars,” Petranek says.

Entrepreneur Elon Musk aims to land people on Mars by 2024 and thinks he can send 80,000 people to the Red Planet by 2050. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is working on a similar plan.
“We’ve had the technology for 30 years to do this, but we haven’t had the will,” Petranek says. But two main factors have “completely shifted public attitudes”
The private sector’s involvement has forced government agencies to up their game, and influential films such as Gravity and The Martian have caught society’s eye.

Petranek is optimistic about humans’ future on Mars. He likens the challenges of starting a new society in space to troops in war, who become close because they are dependent on each other for survival.

“I think we will create a very liveable and likeable environment,” he says. “It’s not terrifying. It’s kind of glorious.”

So what do you think about this agenda? What was running through your mind as you read through this post? You can't wait to get to Mars probably?
Do you think it's a bad idea? Well, you can put them all down in the COMMENT  section below.

How to determine If Your child has been SEXUALLY Abused

August 23, 2019 2
Research has it that one out of every eighteen minors get sexually abused before the age of 18 and tend to get proof of that on daily basis on both media platforms and those close to us.

The culprits of these dirty crimes could be guardians, relatives, neighbors or outsiders. What's more, for the most part, the sexual mishandle could wait for whatever length of time that the culprit needs, or the length of the guardians or gatekeepers of such kids don't discover.

Now and again, guardians of such youngsters may not see the manhandle until the tyke starts to limp; out of genuine uneasiness, hint at pregnancy or side effects of sexually transmitted infections. What's more, when the youngster is excessively youthful, making it impossible to stroll, as there are situations where minors of not exactly a year are assaulted, it could be more hard to recognize what he or she is experiencing.

In the mean time, the injury these sexually abused minors experience could have been minimized if their folks, watchmen, more established kin or even neighbors had discovered sufficiently early, preventing a repeat or the seriousness.

It ought to first be noticed that tyke sexual mishandle is not restricted to sex; touching a youngster's reproductive organs for sexual delight, making the kid to touch another person's privates, demonstrating smut to a kid, seeing sexual pictures of kids, intentionally uncovering a grown-up's privates to a tyke, urging a kid to listen to sexual discussions or wrongly viewing a kid disrobe or utilize the lavatory are all types of manhandle. 

Since kids would scarcely volunteer to discuss their injury, there is the need to call attention to the things guardians could pay special mind to know whether their kids had been or are being manhandled or not:

Sudden change in walking steps: One great approach to know whether a youngster, has been sexually manhandled is if there is a (sudden) change in the way the kid strolls. Given the area of the privates, and the way that their private parts are excessively delicate for such action, the kid may likely support wounds or agonies in that locale, which would influence the way such a youngster walks.

For instance, a 60-year-old man engaging in sexual relations with a six-year-old young lady would likely leave the young lady with extreme vaginal wounds. What's more, as indicated by reasearch, youngsters that have quite recently been mishandled tend to walk as though there is bubble in the middle of their laps. "It is better for guardians to pay consideration on any such change before the torment would recuperate and it would be overlooked."

Dischrage from private parts: Children who have been mishandled, particularly young ladies, have a tendency to have some fluid, or blood release from their genitals. Given that such young ladies have a tendency to be virgins, the intense intercourse could abandon them seeping for quite a while, which would recolor their jeans. Subsequently, on the off chance that you discover your kid's gasp recolored, particularly with blood, make inquiries or see a specialist.

Having bad dreams: Due to the injury such youngsters have experienced, it is normal for them to have unnerving dreams or all of a sudden shout out from rest. This may not be a solitary marker of sexual manhandle, but rather it could likewise be a pointer, which is the reason guardians ought to focus.

Scratching private parts: While it may not be totally strange for kids to need to scratch their privates for various reasons, specialists have said it ought to be an issue of concern when a tyke does that reliably, as it could be an indication of disease or agony occasioned by mishandle. They said making inquiries could be an answer before it ruffians into a blemish or something more genuine. In a similar vein, Parents Protect has prompted that physical signs, for example, unexplained soreness or wounds around private parts ought to draw the consideration of guardians.

High temperature: It has similarly been watched that the push, 'dread of being executed' as said by the attacker, and tension that have a tendency to go with such "odd" action, could make a youngster that has been manhandled to have high temperature.

Frequent Urination: Research also has it that; minors who have been recently sexually abused tend to pee routinely, which could misdirect the parent to imagine that the tyke took an excessive amount of water. Accordingly, if your kid is utilizing the bathroom every now and again, dissimilar to some time recently, give careful consideration and make inquiries.

Being bizarrely cryptic: It has likewise been watched that kids who have been mishandled will probably abruptly gotten to be undercover, principally because of the way they had been debilitated by the attacker. Their quietness could likewise be out of the dread of being condemned by their folks. Along these lines, there could have temperament swings or be carrying on in unusual ways. As indicated by Parents Protect, being all of a sudden cool, pulled back or clingy, which for this situation implies exorbitantly clutching someone else out of feeling unreliable, are signs guardians ought to keep an eye out for. They are along these lines encouraged to delicately ask questions for what reason the tyke had been acting in a weird way.

About-facing to old practices: Due to the unpalatable experience they had, discoveries by Parents Protect have demonstrated that such youngsters have a tendency to do a reversal to some old propensities, such as bed-wetting. Thus, if your tyke abruptly continues bed-wetting, having ceased prior, give careful consideration.

Change in dialect: Ordinarily, kids are not anticipated that they would know certain terms, by temperance of their age, particularly when it needs to do with sex, yet when a youngster starts to say or depict such terms, without having the capacity to give the wellspring of such data, guardians are encouraged to give careful consideration and make inquiries.

Bizarre conduct within the sight of people of the inverse sex: Now and again, kids who have been manhandled have a tendency to be careful about people of the inverse sex since they would likely observe each such individual as a potential attacker. Subsequently, they might need to flee, begin panicky or abstain from being distant from everyone else with any individual of the opposite sex separated from their folks or kin. That could likewise be a sign.

In any case, it ought to be noticed that one sign might possibly be adequate to close, however Parents Protect close attention to that the nearness of at least one of these signs could recommend that such guardians ought to start to make inquiries and consider looking for help, all the more so kids are wont to give suggestions as opposed to talk when something is transpiring.

How, to abstain from being casualty, specialists have exhorted guardians to teach their youngsters on issues this way and afterward create solid amicable association with their kids to such an extent that at whatever time anything untoward happens, they would don't hesitate to open up to them, paying little respect to any danger from the culprit
