Nude Content In The Media

Image
It is worrying that some individuals find it normal posting nude pictures and videos of themselves and other people on social media with impunity. It is even more disturbing to know that some of those who post these items do it on the blind side of the people involved. It is believed this is done to bring shame on those involved. What I don't understand is how that has become the best form of bringing shame on someone.

There is even a new hacking software on social media (especially Facebook) where some rogues post videos to certain groups and those who watch such videos get their social accounts hacked. The only means of knowing that your account has been hacked is when a close friend draws your attention to one or you happen to come across one yourself.

Plight Of Female Nursing Students: Who Is To Blame?

Image
Nursing as a noble profession is guided by a code of ethics and code of conduct. In fact, it takes someone with a kind heart and empathy to be able to care for the sick and the dying. No wonder it is often said, “Nursing is a calling.”
There are numerous government and private nursing institutions in Ghana that train people with the interest to become nurses. As such, nursing students are seen in almost every corner of Ghana these days. It is easy to distinguish between female staff nurses and student nurses from their uniform. Whilst female staff have a full white armband on their uniforms, students have strips of white bands on their uniforms. The level or stage in which you are in school determines the number of white stripes on your uniform. However, a male staff is not so distinguished from male students as they all dress in the same manner.

Electricity Situation In Savelugu Getting Worse

Image
The erratic power supply that has plagued this nation for more than four years, popularly known as “dumsor” among Ghanaians, is stabilizing gradually and the general economic situation is improving too.  Businesses are beginning to increase production and work output is increasing. However, the situation in the Savelugu Municipality of the northern region of Ghana, which is about thirty minutes drive from Tamale, has assumed a downward trend.

Savelugu Municipality is mostly a farming community with a few small-scale enterprises dotted across the town. Businesses in Savelugu include grocery stores, barbering and hairdressing saloons, sachet water production, grinding mills, and a few others. All these businesses depend on electricity to operate. So, in the absence of electricity, all businesses tend to suffer in one way or the other. Savelugu is being supplied with two power lines; the first and more powerful four-phase line and a newer two-phase line.
