Stop Lying; We Demanded N3tn, Not N130bn, ASUU Tells FG

Nasir Fagge

Nasir Fagge

The National President of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Dr. Nasir Fagge, has accused the federal government of not telling Nigerians the truth about the demand of the union as regards the government’s statement that the union’s demand has been met.

Fagge said ASUU had a Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with the federal government for it to spend over N3 trillion to turn around the fortune of all federal and state universities and also to better the lot of the educational sector in the country.

“The agreement is for the federal government to spend N800 billion yearly for the next four years, but what we have is government talking about N130 billion which is very insignificant,” he said.

Speaking, Tuesday, while fielding questions from journalists at the end of the congress of the Benue State University chapter of ASUU, in Makurdi, Fagge said: “Our demands are genuine, and it is based on the mutual agreement entered into in 2009 by government and ASUU. We urge the government to be responsible to that agreement.

“President Goodluck Jonathan said the strike is being politicised but the truth is that it is government that is playing politics with our demands. It is as if every problem in this country is now being politicised.

“I want to ask one basic question: Is it political to ask government to be responsible enough to implement an agreement she willingly entered into.

“It is important to state clearly that we are a union of intellectuals, and we cannot accept a situation were the tail will wag the dog. Whatever we do is for the betterment of the Nigerian university system,” Fagge said.

The ASUU national president also said: “It is important to place on record that the struggle is a continuous one but the implementation of the 2009 agreement is key to improving on facilities in our universities and placing it at par with what we have in other parts of the world.”

How to write the perfect investment proposal

As an established Investment network, we have been responsible for reviewing literally thousands of investment proposals and one of the repeating themes that we have been asked over and over is to explain the methods that can be employed to create the perfect investment proposal or investment summary that is almost guaranteed to get the attention of Business angel investors

The type of investment proposal that will GRAB a business angel Investor’s interest and have him/her almost demanding to discuss the investment pitch further! Over the years I have seen this occur many times on Venture Giant, and I have seen seemingly weak value propositions receive 9 – 10 angel investor contacts on the day of despatch only because the investment proposal had been well written and well thought out!

Is it possible, and can it be learned? I believe that it can be – and this article hopes to explore some of the crucial elements that you should think about whilst crafting your perfect investment pitch. I have also taken the liberty of enclosing a sample investment summary that I am sure will be of great benefit to entrepreneurs looking to create their own investment proposals but not knowing how to apply some of the points that I will talk about below.

My main aim with Venture Giant was not only to create a portal that can get entrepreneurs connected with Angel Investors so as to raise the necessary angel funding that they require but to also create more and more resources of useful, actionable articles that can assist entrepreneurs actively to become ‘investment-ready’ – and this to all in a very reasonably priced environment. From the feedback we are receiving I am now starting to see more and more entrepreneurs benefiting from the knowledge and experience that is featured in our News Channel. At the very least (according to one of the emails I received recently) entrepreneurs are now demanding more from Angel investors and citing the correct investment terms when doing so, and this is very encouraging.

As Venture Giant is primarily an angel Investment deal flow service for angel investors, high net worth individuals and angel syndicates our main aim has always been to send out the most attractive investment opportunities to our investors that read well, make sense, and ARE investable.

Ultimately, if the investment proposals we send out to our Investors on Venture Giant are not up to this standard then we are at a risk of losing active angel investors that sign up to use our service.

It is in my interest to ensure that our entrepreneurs’ submit investment proposals that are of a certain calibre and meet our guidelines of service.

So, the main purpose of this article is to concentrate on how to create the perfect investment opportunity that can be used to submit onto Venture Giant, or for that matter – on any other investment network.

Six points on the perfect investment pitch:

1. The first point I would like to address is that regardless of what you are seeing in the press and in the media about the recession and shrinking GDP data – there will always be money out there for businesses that can MAKE money. Always was there, and will always be there. So your investment proposal must always be geared towards this important point. So make your proposal sound like it can actually make money by creating a convincing proposition.

2. Second point to consider when describing your product is to KEEP IT SIMPLE! I have seen it to many times and it is deeply disappointing for me – an entrepreneur submits a really good opportunity to our angel Investors, but it turns out to be too darn complicated!

Yes agreed, it is important to show to a potential angel investor that you know your stuff – but keep your investment proposal simple.

When investors look through your investment summary they are going to scan through it – and using jargon rich words like CMS, CRM will inevitably confuse and put-off most Angel Investors and move them away from your value proposition! Ignore this advice at your own peril – Use simple words like Software – not a CRM solution! Online media/advertising instead of PPC campaigns etc.

3. Another major point that I have seen entrepreneurs overlook is what Industry sector their business is in! Let me give you an example:

‘What industry sector is google in?’

Think about it for one second: Immediate responses will inevitably always be: Computer, Software, but NO. It’s Advertising! Why? Because 96% of Google’s revenue comes from advertising! So as an industry sector, you would choose Internet, and Advertising. You do not want to lose potential investors because you chose Computers or Software instead of Advertising or Media!

4. Don’t be shy! Talk about your Funding Requirements with no shame! How do you wish to use the money that you raise? What will you purchase – and why is it needed? These are all very valuable questions, and they must be addressed in your investment proposal.

5. Include your background/experience information ONLY if it is relevant to your business or investment proposal. Do you have complementary skills that will assist you in running your business and turning it into a success? If so, talk about this. If not, does your management team have the necessary skills? Talk about this! If not, then skip it for now!

6. Scalability! Does your business have global appeal? Make sure you include this if it does! Facebook, Google are scalable globally.

If you would like further in-depth analysis of any of the terms listed above, we have written entire articles about each aspect of your investment proposal and this can all be located in Venture Giant’s News channel.

How to write the perfect Investment Summary
on Venture Giant for submission to Angel investors

Venture Giant is NOT an ‘unmoderated forum’. All investment proposals are checked by us, and we do not approve all investment proposals.

TO maintain a fair and equitable environment please always ensure that you do not mention your company name or supply any types of contact details in your investment proposal that you submit on Venture Giant. So instead of using your company name use a generic term, like “our Aeronautics Company” or “Media Trading Platform”. Alternatively use expressions like: “Our Limited Company,” or “We”, “Us”, “I”

An investment proposal by a company called “Media Deals” is attached below and through our assistance received a lot of attention on Venture Giant.

Please review it – and though it may not be related to what your industry and/or business, this sample investment proposal will at the very least give you an idea of the quality of investment proposals that we send out to our registered investors.
1. Investment Title Guidelines:
The investment title of your proposal must explain what your business does. So create a compelling enough title that will position your business to be understood instantly in the investor’s mind before he/she has even read your investment proposal! Consider also that the Subject line of the email that is sent out to our registered angel Investors will include your Investment title. A simple, catchy, snappy title will ensure that an investor will open his email and read your entire investment proposal that he receives through Venture Giant. A good title will also ensure that any other investors browsing through our angel investment network will be compelled to read more!
Sample investment Title: (25 Characters)

Media Trading Platform 

2. Investment Summary Guidelines:
This is the public part of your proposal and this must compel an investor to want to read the ENTIRE investment description.

Ideas to mention here are:
Why your investment opportunity is attractive!
How much money is needed, and how will it be used?
What will be the return on investment (ROI) for an Angel Investor and when will they see this return?
Ideally you should aim to write this paragraph AFTER you have created and drafted your entire investment pitch below, so as to ensure that you do not miss out any important facts!
Sample Investment Summary: (500 Characters)

We have created a state of the art UK media trading system that offers Print-media-buyers and ad-sellers (newspapers, magazines and publications) the opportunity of accessing real-time print ad inventory for which agencies and/or advertisers can either buy or bid for. We are seeking a £50k angel investment to be used for Working Capital and Online Marketing. Based on our projections, Angel Investors will see a ROI in year 2 of 34%!

3. Investment Description Guidelines:
Your Investment description that you create on Venture Giant will have to answer the question:

“What’s in it for the Angel Investor!” – I have seen it to many times! Entrepreneurs talk and talk about their product and business…. And then that is it! Strike a balance, and talk about your business, how you will make money, why you are seeking investment and how an investor will make a return!

This is your investment pitch – and don’t forget to add some Industry Statistics! A simple search on Google will reveal some interesting facts that you can include in your investment proposal.

Venture Giant Insider Edge:

Your investment Description is essentially your pitch (or elevator pitch).

 Address key issues like:
What makes your investment proposal an attractive investment opportunity?
How much money is needed, and how will it be used?
What will be the return on investment (ROI) for an Angel Investor and when will they see this return?
This can be effective as a teaser to attract the initial attention of an angel investor particularly when using email or an online angel investment matching service.

Sample Investment Description:
(3000 Characters)
Our Online Media trading system has been in development for the past 12 months. It offers Print-media-buyers and sellers the opportunity of accessing real-time print ad inventory for which agencies and/or advertisers can either buy or bid for.
Publishers always have excess adverts to sell at discounted rates before their 7PM print deadline (the “deadline discount” game) and there is a great demand for this ad-space as it is usually heavily discounted. But in the UK there is no way of accessing these heavily discounted ads. The only real way is to create relationships with magazines, and/or, call each publication and ask them for a ‘deadline discount’.
Our online eBay type bidding system aims to solve this problem by enabling magazines, newspapers and other publications to advertise their ‘deadline discount adverts’ to people wishing to purchase these adverts. All discounted advertising space is automatically categorised by magazine type, ad-size and cost.
Purchasing an ad on our online trading system involves a user simply “adding the advert” to their shopping basket and paying for it via a credit or debit card.
We expect to generate revenues from these purchases of between 6% and 8% on all transactions. It is FREE for Media publishers (magazines and newspapers) to upload their advert availability.

This trading platform can be scaled globally, and my longer term plans is to licence the platform to individuals on a country to country basis. Apart from the upfront and ongoing revenues, further commercialisation could come from INTERCONNECTING the databases together from each country. So, a UK based customer who was looking to buy advertising space could also browse advertising opportunities in India (for example) and if that customer from the UK system subsequently chose to purchase an advert in a different country, we could automate and revenue share between licensees. The commercialisation possibilities are endless.
The Industry
It is often stated that ‘offline media (magazines and newspapers) is in serious trouble’. However all the real-data points to the contrary. According the media handbook 2007, it is estimated that the value of consumer magazines are £7.2bn and the business media industry – including magazines are valued at £18bn to £20bn.
Magazines themselves – the printed ones – have continued to flourish in the last decade since the launch of the Internet. At least one new title is launched every day of the year and has resulted in rising total volumes of sales and of consumer expenditure on printed products.
The Advertising Association (AA) predicts a 15.6 per cent increase in consumer magazine ad-spend over the next 12 years, taking overall advertising investment in the industry from £750m in 2006 to £889m in 2018, which is a view shared by the UK’s leading advertiser, Procter & Gamble, who have increased their investment in print by 10.7 per cent over the last two years.

In Summary
We believe that our online service could do amazingly well in the fight against online advertising as advertisers identify how effectively magazine advertising can build customer loyalty. Our online service has now been created and is all set to launch.

I have had 10 years experience in the publishing business, and I have worked with Random House and learned their marketing methods. I have seen this gap in the market, and I believe an online media trading system is much needed. Using my skills, and experience in this space, I believe that I can turn this business into a great success and commercialise this media trading platform to generate sustainable turnover and profitability.

This Media Trading System is a Win/Win business solution for print media. Advertisers will get discounted ad-space and publishers of magazine will get to move inventory in a much easier, faster and streamlined way.

Please contact me to discuss this investment proposal further.

Venture Giant Insider Edge:

Always try to end with something that the investor should do.

So use expressions like:

We have a full business plan available on request. We are very passionate about our business and we would invite any interested angel investors to contact us now to discuss this investment proposal further with us now.
Always make it easy for Angel Investors to understand your business and investment proposal. Talk about your background and business, and then talk about your product! Yes you have the scientific knowledge on the chemical composition of Biodiesel, but an angel won’t so keep it simple!
Pearl – As an entrepreneur you must learn to demonstrate that you can make Angel Investor money! Convince investors that read your investment proposal that your business opportunity is sustainable and that you are the man (or lady) for the job! This is so important! Your investment summary should demonstrate how you are going to translate an Angel Investor’s investment into profit for them.

Thank you for taking the time to read this brief outline, and I hope that it helps you to create a compelling enough story that will get you the Angel Investor interest – whether it be through MGN,Venture Giant, or otherwise!

The investment proposal listed above is based upon an online web based service. Please follow this link if you are a Property Developer looking for Property Funding and would like to view a Property development funding investment template.

FG To Pocket N1.33trn From Sale Of PHCN

The Federal Government will earn about $8.3 billion (N1.328 trillion) from the sale of the unbundled power generation and distribution companies of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria, PHCN, according to the National Council on Privatisation, NCP.

Part of the money, according to NCP, will also be derived from the sale of the 10 new power plants being built by the Niger Delta Power Holding Company Limited, NDPHC.

Speaking at a special forum on, “Financing the Power Sector Reforms for Economic Development,” organised by the Bankers’ Committee in Abuja, Chairman, Technical Committee of the NCP, Mr. Atedo Peterside, said the new owners of the PHCN assets are expected to invest about N300 billion in Nigeria for the provision of 6.52 million electricity meters and other capital expenditures.

“For the Discos, some very significant investments will also be required to improve efficiencies and reduce Aggregate, Technical Commercial and Collection Losses. Based on the proposals submitted by the core investors, new meters will be installed over the course of the next five years as follows:-

“At an estimated weighted average cost (purchase and installation) of N25, 000 per meter, this amounts to over N150bn. “The bulk of this should be recoverable from the consumer, but then the distribution infrastructure also needs to be modernised and expanded to achieve greater coverage. The 11 Discos are projecting annual capital expenditures in the region of N60 billion per annum for each of the next five years,” Peterside said.

He added that a grand total of approximately $3.3bn (N528 billion) should accrue to the Federal Government’s coffers from the PHCN Genco and Disco transactions.

He further stated that at a crude estimate of $1.2 million per mega watt, the sale of the Federal Government’s 80 per cent equity stake to core investors will raise close to $5 billion (N800 billion), expressing optimism that about 70 per cent of the amount will be financed in 2014 largely through debt/loan instruments provided by Nigerian banks.

Peterside disclosed that the new owners of the power generating and distribution companies will need to make investments of about $4.28 billion (N684.8 billion) to boost the country’s power supply by an additional 4,284.4 mega watts.

“The nine PHCN Gencos, including Omotosho and Olorunsogo, only had available capacity of 2,692 MW as at 10th Sept. 2013, as against a total installed capacity of 6,976.40 MW.

“Financing the necessary capital expenditure (capex) to fund this incremental 4,284.4 MW that is required to achieve full capacity, crudely estimated at $1m per MW approximately, will cost an additional $4.28bn.” he said.

He conceded that there are still some unfinished businesses in the privatisation of the assets of the PHCN, calling for concerted efforts to ensure the success of the exercise.

He said, “I must emphasis that there is still some “unfinished business” with the privatisation of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) Successor Companies and so, like accomplished sportsmen, I believe we must stay focused and not take our eyes off the ball until the game is truly over.

“However, it is pertinent to remember that this is really the beginning of a journey and not the end of a journey as some have mistaken it to be. As we all know, the purpose of privatising the Discos and Gencos was not just to transfer ownership of the assets. The primary purpose was to bring into play new owners with deep pockets who could finance and/or access financing for the rapid restoration of lost capacity and/or add significant new capacity to make up for decades of Government neglect and mismanagement.”

Continuing, Peterside said, “In my opinion, FGN should also continue to offer a safety net by subsidising the tariffs for the poorest consumers, that is, the R1 and R2 customers. [Vanguard]

Jim Iyke’s Deliverance: the Actor Debunks News Reports in a New Statement

Nollywood ‘bad boy’ actor, Jim iyke has cried out to debunk news report going viral on the Internet that he was delivered from witchcraft at the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) headed by Prophet TB Joshua.

The actor was said to have undergone deliverance recently, Sunday, at the church and was reportedly freed from some evil spirits which have allegedly prevented him from finding a wife despite being qualified to have one.

Some had also reported that he was delivered from witchcraft, but the talented make-believe star has rebuffed such reports by laughing it out.
He reacted to such reports via his Twitter handle when he wrote,

“lol witchcraft?! It’s imperative I underscore that people are oblivious to what transpired [during my deliverance]. Ignorance is no excuse. Tailor your opinion to who you know.”

Meanwhile, reactions have continued to trail the incident. Some Nigerians have questioned the authenticity of the video which showed the deliverance of Jim Iyke.

Others termed it as another form of ‘acting’ by the actor allegedly planned with the church for publicity purpose.

Things To Love About Being Single

A great deal of the cultural dialogue about being single or unmarried is focused on the negative aspects of being single or on how to find someone to marry.

There are negatives to being single. However, I am also told that there are negatives to being married. Yet, we are not bombarded with articles and opinions about how married people should work hard on getting divorced. OK, that is extreme, but you do see my point, right?

There are people who are single because they do not want to be married, but most of us, including those who are divorced or widowed, are single because our personal and professional choices have not aligned to produce a (or another) marriage-worthy relationship. I told someone recently who was attempting to fix me up that I’d prefer they leave it alone.

Why, you say? Shouldn’t I take all the help I can get? No. In my short life I have learned two things about myself and life as it relates to dating:

(1) Blind dates and fix-ups are usually only good for the purpose of collecting entertaining war stories and

(2) God will do what God will do and he’ll tell me about it when I need to know about it.

So, what do we do while we are waiting for our choices to align or God to do his part? We enjoy the good things about being single.

Here are my five favorite things about being single…

1. Freedom

“I’m single because I was born that way.” – Mae West
This is the big one. I have asked married friends and family and the consensus is that the thing they miss most about being single is freedom. As one friend put it, I miss “being able to make any decision without consulting or compromising on anything from paint colors, to car buying, to vacationing.” As a single person, I am free from the obligation to consult the schedules, opinions, feelings, needs and desires of another. I am also free from the responsibilities that come with family and marriage, which are many. I don’t have to worry about the financial stability, safety or the personal and professional future of another person. I can buy what I want, eat at whatever fancy restaurant I please, travel to places that interest me and live a lifestyle that supports my interests. Single people can do whatever they want. Living as independent single people — not reliant on family or a partner — is the only time in our lives when we will have almost total control over our lives and be really free.

2. Self-Awareness

“I don’t like to be labeled as lonely just because I am alone.” -Delta Burke
One of my favorite things about being single has been getting to know who I am, Getting to know ourselves is a great opportunity. I know that sounds corny and everyone says it, but think about it carefully. While it is true that we can create ourselves into what we want to be — we can become a doctor or parent or school teacher or circus animal trainer — that is not the same as getting to know who we really are deep down inside. Being a single adult provides the opportunity to explore who we are, what we like, what we value, what we require to be happy and, sometimes more importantly, what we do not want in life and in relationships. This kind of self-exploration is difficult when you are in a relationship or married.

In relationships, much time is focused on figuring out the relationship and getting to know or meeting the needs of your partner. Knowing who we really are ensures that we don’t lose ourselves in a relationship and it makes dating and finding a partner much easier — you know in advance what you
want and need and the areas in which you are willing to compromise.
It is also a lot easier to “just be yourself” if you know that person.

3. Simplicity

“I like being single, I’m always there when I need me.” – Art Leo
Being single can be easy — if you let it. Relationships, no matter how good, are complicated. Anytime two people are in close quarters, there will be conflict and compromises. Single people almost always, in almost every decision, have the option to take the path of least resistance; in relationships, that option doesn’t come as often.

A single person’s decisions involve only themselves and who they choose to involve; in a relationship, all decisions have the potential for conflict and complication.
I only have to consider my family at holidays and special occasions.

At my house, there are no arguments about the thermostat, how fast the dishes get washed, whether to get cable or pay someone to mow the lawn or how the house is decorated. I love my 1,600 square-foot house. It is just what I need: It is small and simple. I only have to buy for one person. That’s one car, TV, computer, cellphone, plane ticket… you get the idea. Singleness also provides flexibility; I can accommodate change (like moving, accepting a new job offer or taking a last-minute trip) much more easily than someone who is in a relationship. While there are plenty of things that can complicate life in general, being single is less complicated than being in a relationship.

4. Selfishness

“The only reason to get married is if you want children.” – Alice Tate
I do not like being around selfish people. It is one of the hardest things for me to do. I am talking about those folks who can only talk about themselves, are stingy with money or think we are all here to serve them. So, I am not suggesting that single people act like jerks. No.
Here, I am talking about the ability to focus on areas of your life that would get less attention if you were in a relationship or married. Being single allows you to focus (selfishly) on your career, rather than balance your career time with the career and personal needs of someone else. If you are ambitious, then being single will treat you well. You can work long hours, do all the professional development you can stand and spend your evenings reading all those books on leadership.

(Note: this kind of selfishness improves your ability to be a solid and contributing partner in a future relationship or marriage, if that is your aim.) As a single person, you can selfishly pursue your own hobbies, interests and relationships with friends and family without the necessity to balance your time between your partner’s hobbies, friends and family. I can take an entire Saturday morning to write without the need to worry about someone else’s schedule, I can have friends or family over whenever I please or I can play the guitar while watching Netflix (this requires the volume on the TV to be at about 45) all evening. Singleness permits you to be selfish in good ways.

5. Service

“Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I do.” (1 Corinthians 7:8, NIV)
The Apostle Paul also told the men that he’d prefer them to be unmarried as well. Why? Because they would be free spend their time in prayer and service to God. Being single gives you more time to be of service to others, whether it is your church, a community service organization or your favorite non-profit. Singleness allows you to be unselfish with your free time and resources. Once you have determined what you value and what you want to support, you can commit to volunteerism and philanthropy without the need to consult with someone else.

Time and money are powerful tools in helping others, but money is often a huge point of contention for many couples. As a single person, you are in control of how your money and time is put to use. Service is a great way to help others, feel good about you, and make friends.

Clearly, this is not an exhaustive list. There are many good things about singleness wrapped up in these five areas. In fact, I chose not to list all the good things individually because there are far too many. This is why I think the discussion of being single needs a new perspective.

Being single is not worse than being married; in many cases, it is better, but, at the very least, it is just different.

I hope one day to bump into the marriage-worthy fellow that God has for me, but until that time, I am going to enjoy my life. Being single is a good thing.

Do you have excessive fats u’d wanna burn down? »» How to Lose Weight Fast««

If you want to lose weight, you’re not alone. Almost half of all Americans are trying to lose weight at any given time. While there are many things you can do to shed pounds, losing weight too quickly can be dangerous. Fad diets, diet pills, and fasting may help you reduce the number on the scale, but these methods can cause severe health complications.

Fad Diets
The purpose of most fad diets is to promote rapid weight loss that you can see almost overnight. Fad diets are short-term solutions; if you stay on a fad diet for more than a few days, you could cause your body serious harm. You should always consult your healthcare provider before beginning any kind of weight loss program to make sure your body can take the added strain to its system. Here are some popular fad diets with simple instructions that claim to result in fast, short-term weight loss.

The Water Diet[2].
This diet involves drinking a daily total of about 64 fluid ounces (8 cups) of cold (preferably refrigerated) water, at regular intervals.
Drink a glass of water before each meal and before each snack to suppress your appetite by making you feel fuller.
Do not add sweeteners or flavorings to your water.
Do not replace meals with water.
Take a daily multivitamin to replenish the nutrients lost through more frequent urination.

Juice Detox Diet, Juice Fast, or Hollywood Diet[3]. Although there are many variations on a juice detoxification fast or crash diet, they generally last for one to three days.
You can only drink fruit and vegetable juices on this type of fad diet.
Some variations of this diet involve taking vitamins or nutrients along with the juices, while others let you have a single meal per day.
The juices are meant to help your body flush out toxins and eliminate several pounds of (mostly) water weight from your system.[4]

The Master Cleanse, Maple Syrup Diet, or Lemonade Diet[5]. This fad diet is a liquid-only diet.
Drink between 6 to 12 glasses of a special mixture of lemonade, cayenne pepper, water, and maple syrup each day.
You will also drink a cup of herbal laxative tea twice a day.
There is an optional period of easing into this fad diet, as well as an easing-out process.
It should only be done for very short-term weight loss and is supposed to function as a detoxifying cleanse rather than a strict weight-loss routine.
There is also an optional salt-water flush that can be incorporated into this diet.

The Cabbage Soup Diet[6]. This diet claims it can help you lose up to 10 pounds in one week.
It involves eating a low-fat, high fiber diet.
You mainly eat a special type of cabbage soup, but you can also have moderate portions of certain fruits and vegetables, occasional meats and rice, a minimum of 4 glasses of water and a multivitamin each day.
This diet lasts 7 days and is not recommended as a permanent solution for long-term weight loss because of the lack of nutrients you consume on it.

The Salt-Free Diet[7]. This diet helps you lose water weight by eliminating water retention in the body.
On this diet, you cannot have any salt, which includes not only table salt, but also all the added sodium found in pre-packaged and prepared foods.
This involves preparing sodium-free products at home or avoiding processed foods all together, which also means avoiding to eat out at restaurants.

It also involves drinking up to 2 liters (about 8 cups) of water each day to replenish essential bodily fluids, although green tea is also allowed in moderation.
Many prepared foods have as much as 30% of your daily value. You get your daily requirement of sodium from a healthy diet; too much can cause you toretain water weight.
Because some dietary salt is essential for good health, the Salt-Free Diet should not be followed for more than one to two weeks.
It’s important to note that this diet is more effective for those people who tend to retain water more easily than others. If you’re not sure whether you’re particularly prone to water retention, pay attention to your hands and feet the next time you eat something salty. If your rings are more difficult to take off, or your shoes become tighter after a salty meal, those are signs that your body is sensitive to sodium.

The HCG Diet[8].
This diet combines injections or supplements of HCG (human chorionic gonaotropin) with a severely restricted calorie intake.
The calorie restriction alone (only 500 to 800 calories per day) is enough to promote weight loss in most people; it is significantly under the recommended daily calorie allowance, even for people attempting to lose weight.
HCG is not monitored by the FDA, and can have unpleasant side effects in many people.

Those who follow this diet typically gain the weight back immediately after stopping it.
Weight Loss Spa Treatments
Another easy way to get fast weight-loss results is to get beauty treatments specifically designed to help you shed inches quickly. By visiting a spa, sauna, or wellness clinic offering weight loss beauty services and procedures, you can have your pick of numerous beauty treatments and spa services that are designed to help you lose weight quickly or to alter your appearance by reducing bloating, tightening your skin, or removing body fluids.[9]These processes only involve temporary weight loss, but the results are immediate and do not involve dieting or

  • Exercise.
  • 1.1
    Ask about a mineral body wrap. Some mineral wraps claim to help you slim down by literally making you “lose” inches off of your waist, thighs, and arms. The process involves a mineral-based cleanse that is supposed to detoxify your body, helping you shed weight, reduce cellulite (fat near the surface of your skin), and tone and firm your skin almost instantly.

    Get a lipase body wrap. Lipase body wraps are another quick-slim beauty treatment that follow a two-step phase.
    First, an enzyme wrap is applied to rid your body of fat tissue near the surface of the skin.
    A second mineral wrap is then applied, designed to tighten and smooth your skin.

    Get a European body wrap. European body wraps are another potential option for spa services aimed at dropping inches off of trouble spots. This procedure is supposed to firm and tone skin, reduce the appearance of cellulite or stretch marks, and temporarily promotes weight loss.

    Get a hot body wrap. Heat-based body wraps are perhaps a more well-known spa treatment, designed both to detoxify your body and stimulate smooth, toned skin. The heat and massage involved in most heat or steam treatments is targeted at improving circulation and helping your body slim down quickly.

    Go to a sauna. Saunas may result in a loss of a pint of sweat in just a quarter of an hour.
    You should hydrate by drinking a few glasses of water after spending time in a sauna to reduce the risk of dehydration.
    Keep in mind that time in saunas must be limited, preferably to no more than one 15- to 20-minute session per day.
    People with blood pressure or heart problems should not use saunas, nor should young children.[10]

    Get acolonic. Some spas offer colonic irrigation treatments, which involve physically flushing your colon with large amounts of water to remove fecal accumulation.
    This process may help some people who suffer from bloating, gas, and constipation and claims to spur weight loss in some individuals.[11]

    Liposuction can shed pounds instantly. Liposuction is a surgical option for fast, targeted weight loss, generally only recommended for people with one or two specific areas of highly fatty tissue but otherwise relatively healthy body weight.[12]

    Because it is a surgical procedure, it carries significant health risks and should only be performed by a licensed professional.
    Healthy Eating Habits
    Change general nutrition and lifestyle habits. Adopting a number of simple but significant dietary and behavioral changes can be enough to jump-start weight loss for many people. Combining the suggestions below with your short-term diet plan will enhance your chances of reaching your weight-loss goals faster and maintaining those results in the long-term.

    Develop a healthy and personalized meal plan.
    Figure out how much you should be eating by scheduling a consultation with a dietitian or a physician to discuss your weight loss goals, special dietary needs, current eating habits, and potential areas for improvement.
    Choose meals that have a healthy balance of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy, and lean proteins. A typical dinner plate should be filled with half vegetables or fruits, half whole grains and lean protein.

    Plan your meals in advance.
    This can help you incorporate more nutritious foods into your diet and limit your calorie intake.

    Determine your daily calorie needs.
    Your individual calorie needs will vary based on age, gender, height, and activity level. Knowing exactly how much your target daily intake is will help you stick to your diet.
    Monitor the number of calories and grams of fat you consume each day and try not to exceed USDA guidelines.[13]

    Keep a food diary.
    Write down every meal, snack, and drink you consume as well as the approximate quantities for an entire week.
    When possible, write down the number of calories in each food you eat as you eat it.
    Keep in mind that the recommended serving size is often considerably smaller than the serving you actually eat.
    Don’t forget to include coffee mix-ins, condiments, and other additions to your daily diet.
    Once you have done this, you should be able to estimate your typical daily calorie intake and compare it to your goal with an online calorie calculator.

    Identify your food triggers and plan accordingly.
    Careful planning can help you avoid trigger foods and empty calorie traps you may have identified in your food journal. If you don’t purchase these foods or if you plan meals in advance, you will be less likely to sabotage your diet when pressed for time.

    Watch your portion sizes.
    Look for healthy, delicious meal and snack ideas online or in cookbooks, and create a menu for the week. Make a list of what you’ll need for these meals, and don’t stray from your list when you get to the grocery store. Looking at market circulars can also give you ideas and even cut costs by buying weekly sale items and seasonal produce.

    Incorporate appropriate portion sizes into your meal plan. For instance, a healthy snack of almonds and dried cranberries can turn into a huge calorie source if you don’t pay attention to quantities. Also, preparing pre-apportioned healthy snacks can help you avoid mindless overeating and can make it convenient to grab a healthy snack.

    Don’t skip meals. Eating a healthy breakfast increases your rest metabolic rate earlier in the day, keeps your energy levels high, and may help you resist the urge of high-calorie snacks throughout the day. Plan to eat a snack or meal every 2 to 4 hours to keep your metabolism active. Eating regularly also keeps your blood sugar stable and reduces unhealthy calorie binges or deviations from your meal plan.

    Select smart substitutes for unhealthy sources of fat, sugar, and calories. Most foods have healthier counterparts that will allow you to enjoy your favorite foods without unnecessary fat, sugar, and calories. Exchanging high-calorie and high-fat foods and drinks for healthier alternatives can help youlose weightfaster.

    Snack smartly.Swap potato chips and candy bars for snacks that are nutrient-rich and low in calories and fat. Avoid processed and packaged foods when possible, or buy snacks that have single-serving packets of 100 to 200 calories. Healthy and easy snacks include nuts, rice cakes, fresh or dried fruits, baby carrots, cherry tomatoes, and so on. Vegetables are generally very low in calories, very high in fiber, and full of flavor and nutrition, but avoid fatty dressings or dips. Fruit provides a good source of soluble fiber, releasing energy more slowly and keeping you feeling full longer. Low-fat dairy products, such as yogurt or cheddar cheese, can also be healthy snacks in moderation. Try combining string cheese with a handful of grapes, spreading peanut butter on a few crackers, or dipping sliced red pepper into a few tablespoons of hummus.

    Sip on low-calorie 100% fruit juice, seltzer, or water instead of soft drinks, energy drinks, flavored coffees, and martinis. Cutting calories with substitutions can be a lot easier than you might think. For example, a tall latte in the morning may pack 500 calories. Since a pound of body fat (lost or gained) is roughly equivalent to 3,500 calories, replacing that rich beverage with black coffee can help you lose a pound per week[14]. If you eat salad frequently, try substituting a low-fat vinaigrette for your ranch or blue cheese dressing[15]. Similarly, cook with a tablespoon of olive oil instead of butter, for instance, or opt for skim milk instead of whole.

    Choose lean meats.Poultryandfishare naturally low in fat, and certain fish likesalmon, sardines, and fresh tuna are an excellent sources of antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial to your health. Ask your butcher for lean cuts of beef or pork if you choose to buy them, and trim visible fat from meat before cooking. Consider eating vegetarian a few days each week. By replacing meat with nutritious foods like beans, tofu, or lentils, you can cut significant amounts of your daily calorie intake while adding many nutrients to your diet.

    Replace high-calorieside dishes with healthier alternatives. For instance, exchange cheesy pasta or mashed potatoes with steamed vegetables or salad.

    Drinking waterinstead of soda, coffee, alcohol, juice, or milk may help you cut hundreds of calories per day. Increasing your water intake can also help your body efficiently use nutrients, keep you energized, get the most benefit from your exercise routine, and feel full longer. If you can handle substituting water for all other drinks for a week, you can expect faster weight loss and see dramatic improvement in energy levels and even appearance very quickly.

    Avoid tempting grocery aisles. Avoid the areas in the grocery store that stock sodas, cookies, ice cream, pizzas, and other fattening and highly processed foods, so that you are less likely to purchase unhealthy options.

    Prepare your meals at home instead of buying fast food.

    The Mayo Clinic Diet[16].
    This plan was developed by the world-renowned medical research and treatment clinic to jump-start weight loss and promote a long-term plan for healthy and sustainable weight loss. It advertises a possible weight loss of up to 10 pounds in the first week, although results slow afterwards. This is one of the few diet plans with immediate weight loss results that are healthy to maintain in the long-term. It focuses on breaking unhealthy habits, creating healthy habits, and learning to eat and exercise well for life.

    Exercise More
    Remember, you canlose weighteither by decreasing your calorie intake or increasing the number of calories you burn. Any health strategy should include both, but if you want to lose weight fast, exercise is essential. Small changes to your activity level can add up over the course of a day, and can start making an impact on your weight within as little as a week.

    Make time for exercise.
    By making time for exercise and other healthy, productive activities, you can avoid temptation to overeat.
    Make chores exercise opportunities. Do your own gardening, wash your car to burn calories and get things done around the house.
    Don’t pick the most convenient parking spot. Park further from the entrance when you go shopping.
    Take the stairs instead of the elevator.

    Be realistic about the type of exercise you can do when starting a new program.
    Don’t be discouraged if you have to start out slowly; you can always adjust your routine as you gain skills and confidence.
    Even short time intervals of circuit training that combine cardio and fat-burning activities can trim inches off of your waist, arms, and thighs in 2 weeks or less. Participants in Chris Freytag’s 2 week trial[17]lost up to 10 pounds and as many inches when tested byPreventionmagazine readers, with up to 5 pounds lost in the first week after only 6 sessions of 20 minutes each. Many women’s and health magazines as well as personal trainers offer similar condensed workout routines designed to maximize weight loss and visible physical slimming within only a few days of beginning the regimen.

    Adopt a targeted exercise program.
    Fat-burning cardio routines can help you lose fat quickly, while weight and resistance training can trigger your metabolism to use energy more efficiently.
    Fat-burning exercise routines help you drop fat quickly by targeting fat loss. Having a healthy and balanced diet in combination with moderate fat-burning exercise is essential to prevent muscle loss. Try routines that are heavy on cardio.
    In order to lose a pound of fat, you must burn 3,500 calories. The most effective fat-burning routines contain short bursts of high-intensity workouts with interspersed periods of rest.[18]These are also called interval workouts.

    Variety in an exercise regimen is especially important, and can help both those who have reached a weight plateau and those who are just beginning the weight loss process stick with it.

    Choose workouts that require your entire body to exert an effort. This way, you work every muscle group and burn calories with more muscles at one time, like multi-tasking with your exercise.[19]For instance, combine a form of resistance training (try raising small dumbbells overhead as you work) with your arms while you jog or cycle with your legs.

    Perform low impact aerobic activities.
    Moderate aerobic workouts incorporating brisk walking, cycling, aerobic machines, or swimming not only burn calories they also keep your heart healthy. Swimming is great, especially if you are quite overweight or have joint problems, because you can get the same benefits of running typically burning even more calories with much less stress on your joints. Try to get at least 30-40 minutes of aerobic exercise at least three or four days per week.

    Pump some iron.
    Resistance training,weight training, can help both men and women stay lean by building muscle and raising metabolism. Weight loss strategies that incorporate both aerobic and weight training boost calorie burn significantly. If you gain muscle, your body’s resting metabolism (the amount of calories you burn when you’re just sitting still) increases. Studies have shown consistent weight training toraise the body’s metabolismby 15%. This means an average woman might burn 200-300 more calories at rest every day. Weight training can also tone flabby “trouble” spots, giving the appearance of weight loss by simply tightening and slimming your body.

    Make exercise enjoyable.
    Choosing physical activities that you like to do will make you much more lucky to succeed at maintaining your exercise regimen.
    Start a hobby that involves moving around a bit, even if it doesn’t sound like “exercise.” Gardening, building small projects, working on cars, or playing with animals are all great ways to burn calories.
    Remember that games like volleyball, tennis, and even Frisbee can help you burn calories while having a blast, making exercise a social and fun activity you will want to enjoy everyday.
    Find what you like and don’t be afraid to try new things. Many forms of exercise can help you reach your weight loss goals, even home-training programs such as Wii Fit, which guides you through yoga, aerobics, strength training, and balance exercises in the comfort of your own home.
    For more adventurous athletes, programs such as P90-X can also provide dramatic weight loss benefits through exercise.

    Get enough rest.
    Being properly rested will help you maintain sufficient energy throughout the day, making you less likely to overeat and less prone to injury during physical activity.
    Rest at least 24 to 48 hours between strength training sessions on the same muscle group (for instance, work out your biceps and abs on alternating days), and take one to two days off from exercising each week.
    Know how much sleep you need, since sleep deficiency impairs your ability to lose fat.

    Try cooking with olive oil instead of other unhealthy types of oils if possible. One of the major benefits of olive oil is that it’s a great source for monounsaturated fats which can help lower Low Density Lipoprotein also known as LDL. This can help protect against atherosclerosis. In addition to this, monounsaturated fats can actually lower the risk of heart disease. The reason for this is because these types of fats do not affect the levels of High Density Lipoprotein (HDL), which are also called “good cholesterol”.Cite error;

    You may be able to reduce your caloric intake by eating slowly; your brain needs about 20 minutes to get the signal that you are not hungry anymore. Taking a breather in between bites can help prevent overeating, provided you pay attention to how full you feel and stop after you are satisfied.

    Be realistic but stay optimistic. Set an achievable goal for your weight reduction. If the aim is not practical then you will easily get disheartened and stop follo
    wing your regimen. Keep in mind that even with minimal weight loss, toning muscle by weight training can give you a slimmer appearance very quickly.

    The goal is to lose fat, not just weight in general. If you are doing strength training during your weight loss (which you should be), you might actually see an initial gain in weight. If this is the case, don’t worry! You have probably lost fat and gained muscle, which is denser than fat and is much healthier

    You dont satisfy her the way u feel you should?»»PERFECT WAYS TO MAKE OUT««

    While kissing someone you like for even a few seconds can be electrifying or intense enough on its own, making out takes kissing to a new level. If you want to make out the right way, then you have to know how to sustain your passion, mix things up, and make your kissing partner feel appreciated. Whether you’ve been with the same person for a while or you’re kissing someone new, read on to find out how to make out like a pro.

    Part One: Initiating the Make Out Session

    Make eye contact.
    Meet your kissing partner’s eyes and give him or her a little smile to show that you’re ready for some action. You can also gently lean your forehead against your kissing partner’s, put your hand on his face, or even give him or her a quick peck on the lips before you really start kissing. This helps start a connection and gets your partner more ready to kiss you; if you swoop in without any warning, the kissing session may be unexpected — and not in a good way.
    Your eye contact doesn’t have to be super intense, especially if you’re just starting out with this person. Just a few seconds of eye contact should get the message across.

    Move slowly and gently.
    This is very important. The best way to prevent head-butting, elbowing, and clanking teeth is to do everything slowly, especially in the beginning and when you’re changing positions. As time progresses, you can introduce more passionate kissing techniques, but they can only be sustained for so long. Always return to a slow, comfortable pace. Start with a kiss on the lips, then, if you want to French kiss, slowly move your tongue into your partner’s mouth as he or she does the same.
    Once your tongues are in each other’s mouths, you can move them slowly in a circular motion, move them on top of each other, or do whatever feels good without moving too fast or getting sloppy.
    Remember that if you’remaking out for the first time, you have to be extra cautious before you begin. The first time is about figuring out the person’s comfort level, boundaries, and favorite maneuvers.

    Keep your hands busy.
    This doesn’t mean that you should frantically paw your kissing partner every chance you get. However, you’ll be more comfortable kissing if you don’t keep your hands neatly planted on your lap. Once you’re comfortable, and especially if you’re sitting down, try to explore your kissing partner’s body — as long as you’re both okay with it. Basically, just keep your hands moving from time to time, so you don’t get stuck in the same old boring position.
    If you’re kissing a man, put your arms around his neck or touch his arms, neck, back of his head, or even his chest.
    If you’re kissing a girl, touch her shoulders and her waist, and wait for the signal that she’s ready for more.

    Tease your kissing partner.
    You can still play hard to get in the middle of a make out session. When it’s going great, just pull back for a second and look into your kissing partner’s eyes. Locking eyes will be sexy and will make your kissing partner want to kiss you even more badly. Though you shouldn’t try this move all the time, once or twice per make out session will do the trick.
    This is also a great move if you need a little break from so much kissing.

    Remember to come up for air.
    Taking a little break from kissing is perfectly fine and can even help get you back into the kissing mindset. If you’re tired but don’t want to stop yet, just come up for air, slow down your kissing pace, or don’t be afraid to take a quick bathroom break or ask for a glass of water. If you’re not feeling comfortable with so much kissing, then you won’t be able to enjoy yourself or give your best effort.
    It’s okay. Taking a break from time to time will actually make you a better kisser.

    Making out involves more than just your lips; depending on the level of relationship, move your hands towards more sensitive zones, or wrap your legs around your partner or move your hips in closer. But make sure your partner is ready and work up to it slowly.

    WATCH OUT FOR PART 2………..soon!

    BREAKING: Bomb explosion at Redeemed Church kills 6

    A bomb explosion suspected to be from a male suicide bomber has killed six persons including the bomber.

    The blast occurred at a local branch of
    Redeemed Christian Church of God along Bauchi road in Potiskum Town, Yobe State.

    A resident of the town who is also one of the officials working with the aid agencies informed PREMIUM TIMES that the bomb went off at a time worshippers were observing the Sunday service.

    “Six persons died and there are no reports of
    injuries yet” he said.
    Efforts to speak with the police were
    unsuccessful as their phones were switched

    Also, the spokesperson of the Joint Task
    Force in Yobe, Lazarus Eli, said he had
    travelled out of the state for an official
    assignment and is yet to be briefed on the

    Details later…

    If You Want To Get Over Someone, You Have To Let Yourself Be Sad First

    If You Want To Get Over Someone, You Have To Let Yourself Be Sad First When your heart gets broken, the last thing you want todo is revisit those emotions ever again.

    The last thing you want is to feel depressed, to feel beaten down, to feel hopeless, to feel anything you feltthe second your partner told you it was over.

    It’s way easier to just shove those sad feelings away. It’s way easier to just abandon them, to push them as fardown into your soul as they’ll go and pretend they don’texist until you convince yourself they really, truly have disappeared.

    But they haven’t. No matter how stubbornly you force those feelings away in an attempt to bury them forever,they haven’t gone anywhere.

    Still, you’ll try to suppress them. You refuse to giveyourself permission to feel anything at all.You might feel fine the moment you suppress youremotions, but that moment won’t last long because allof your feelings will find their way out eventually.

    It doesn’t matter how much time you spentstrategically hiding them, how much energy you spent ignoring them. Feelings will always release themselves.

    And the only way to handle your breakup is to allow them to.In order to get over someone, you have to allow yourselfto feel all of the sad emotions that will inevitably plagueyou during the post-breakup period.

    You have to feel itall to heal it all.You need to be honest with yourself abouthow you feel.The post-breakup period is filled with some of theheaviest feelings you’ll ever experience in your life.

    You’ll feel depressed and broken. You’ll feel desperateand forlorn. You’ll feel empty and hollow.You’ll feel like your heart has been burnt to a crisp, andinstead of pumping blood, it pumps bits of ashesthroughout your bloodstream, darkening your thoughtsand clouding them with despair, poisoning everycrevice of your soul.

    You might go through periods of not believing it’sactually over, of questioning reality, of trying toconvince yourself this is temporary and you will getback together soon, all of which will make you feel likeyou’re bat sh*t insane.

    But you absolutely must be honest with yourself aboutthese feelings. You must admit you’re sad.I know nobody likes to admit that. We live in a world inwhich vulnerability and emotions equal weakness, andit’s the norm to pretend everything in our lives isperfect — or, at least, to display our lives as perfect onsocial media.

    Well, who cares what anyone else thinks about how you’re feeling?This is your time to be selfish, to take care of yourself,to have your own back.

    Nobody is going to get youthrough the healing process but you.You’re upset. You need to accept the fact that you’reupset.You need to confront your demons.You must be your own exorcist.

    If you don’t confront the bad feelings once youacknowledge that they exist, your heart will force you toconfront them.Even worse, your heart will manifest the feelings in avariety of unrelated ways.

    They will be uncovered from wherever you hid themand catapulted out of your body unexpectedly — at thebar after a few drinks, to a friend at whom you explodein anger, during work hours when you simply can’t findit in yourself to finish an assignment, in the form ofanxiety and self-destruction and self-hatred.

    If your feelings are trapped, and you refuse to let themout, they will let themselves out.

    The best way to prevent all of this from happening is toconfront the exact problem. To confront your breakup.If you don’t, you’ll add a million other problems thatyou’ll have to address, which will only exacerbate yourpain.

    Face your breakup. You simply can’t fix what you don’tface.You need to understand the quicker youdeal with it, the quicker you can heal fromit.

    Once you face the breakup — the exact source of yourpain — you need to let yourself feel sad about it.

    Purge yourself of your emotions by writing in yourjournal, making a sad playlist, venting to a friend whowill listen, walking alone in the rain, laying in your bedall day or doing anything else that lets your emotionscompletely and utterly devour you.

    Trust that if you give yourself permission to sink this deeply whenever your emotions beg you to let them, you won’t want to do so all the time.

    Over time, the need to purge will come less frequently,until one day, you’ll wake up and realize you haven’t done it in awhile.But if the need comes around again — and, trust me, itwill — don’t beat yourself up about it. Just purge.

    Purge until it’s all gone.Throughout your healing time, you will purge in varyingdegrees.You will do everything from eat a whole pint of icecream and binge watch “The Bachelorette” for hours toletting yourself shed a single tear on your walk to classor work.

    The most important thing is to listen to your emotions.They’re your guide on the healing process.You need to learn you can’t appreciate the good unless you appreciate the bad.

    If you want to know what it’s like to be happy, you haveto know what it’s like to be sad.If you spend your whole life avoiding sadness andsimply riding the fleeting happiness you get from little moments in which life goes “your way,” you won’texperience true, unfettered happiness.

    Life isn’t about getting your way all the time. Life isn’tabout denying your suffering.Life is about accepting what you can’t change, which isthat you will feel really f*cking sad sometimes because that’s just a part of the complex experience of being ahuman being.But there’s a silver lining.

    If evolution has allowed us to feel this sad, this broken, this battered, imagine how happy it’s capable ofmaking us feel.

    Imagine how much happiness we’re destined for.Dr. Bigelow: So you took a chance on being happy, eventhough you knew that later on you would be sad.
    Louie: Yeah.
    Dr. Bigelow: And now you’re sad.
    Louie: Yeah.
    Dr. Bigelow: So, what’s the problem?
    Louie: I’m too sad. Look, I liked the feeling of being inlove with her. I liked it. But now she’s gone, and I missher, and it sucks. And I didn’t think it was going to bethis bad, and I feel like, why even be happy if it’s justgoing to lead to this, you know? It wasn’t worth it
    Dr. Bigelow: You know, misery is wasted on themiserable.
    Louie: What?
    Dr. Bigelow: You know, I’m not entirely sure what yourname is, but you are a classic idiot. You think spendingtime with her, kissing her, having fun with her, youthink that’s what it was all about? That was love?Louie: Yeah.

    Dr. Bigelow: THIS is love. Missing her, because she’sgone. Wanting to die. You’re so lucky. You’re like awalking poem. Would you rather be some kind of afantasy? Some kind of a Disney ride? Is that what youwant?
    Don’t you see? This is the good part. This is what you’vebeen digging for all this time.Now you finally have it in your hand, this sweet nuggetof love, sweet, sad love, and you want to throw it away.You’ve got it all wrong.

    Learn Why You Should Date Someone You Admire, Not Just Someone You Love

    What makes a relationship last? Love. Now for the harder question: What is love?

    This is one of the most difficult questions one must come to answer. Because love is a subjective experience, it varies greatly between individuals.

    It’s a sort of alteration to one’s reality — to how one perceives and interprets the world around him or her, as well as his or her relation to it.

    It involves thoughts, beliefs and intense emotions. Love is what allows for a connection between two individuals to form.

    As is so often the case, however, time is love’s enemy. Or rather, it can be love’s enemy.

    At the same time, love can grow stronger and deeper each year, allowing the bond between two individuals to form something almost otherworldly.

    So why is it that for some couples, the love manages to last — even grow — while other couples can’t seem to make things work?

    The obvious answer is the two individuals aren’t the right matches for each other.

    Maybe they were the wrong type. Maybe they simply met at the wrong time in their lives, while living incompatible realities.

    But this doesn’t really tell us much. All it states is that the relationship didn’t work because it couldn’t work.

    Of course, different relationships fail for different reasons, but at the same time, those who succeed usually only succeed for one reason.

    When it comes to love, there are a million ways to fail but only one way to succeed.

    Your love must go past the shallow, past the purely emotional, to a state of mutual fascination and mutual respect — mutual admiration.

    Admiration is often the missing ingredient.

    When you admire an individual, you respect him or her intimately. Admiration is a very personal matter.

    While you respect strangers, respect your elders, respect for the sake of respecting, admiring an individual is a much more personal matter.

    Especially when that admiration comes paired with romantic love. I’d even go as far as to argue that without a mutual admiration, romantic love can never reach what some would call everlasting love, what the Ancient Greeks referred to as “agape.”

    Without a mutual admiration for each other, you and your lover won’t be capable of making it the distance because you will get tired of each other.

    You will lose interest in time, and your mind will waver, eventually breaking the bond the two of you have created over the years.

    Unfortunately, admiration alone isn’t enough to keep the love alive indefinitely.

    What it does do, however, is make it much easier for you to keep that flame burning.

    When you admire someone, you never completely lose the need to impress him or her.

    Just as those who love wish for that love to be reciprocated, those who admire wish to be admired in return.

    This may not hold true when the relationship is a shallow one, when we’re simply admiring from a distance, but when the relationship is an intimate one, we have a need for the people we are with to admire us as we admire them, see us as we see them and love us as we love them.

    Those in love already have a level of admiration for each other, but how intense the admiration will vary.

    Most relationships hold a shallow mutual admiration — sometimes a one-sided admiration.

    If you can manage to admire and feel the need to solicit admiration from your partner — and do so successfully — you create a self-perpetuating cycle feeding into itself, allowing your love to flourish.

    The reason you admire the person you love is all that really matters.

    Admiration is great. It allows you to bond in a way you otherwise wouldn’t have been able to do.

    Yet it’s not so much the admiration itself that makes all the difference but the reason behind it that allows for an amazing partnership.

    People don’t admire for the sake of admiring. Like love, admiration is not something you can fake.

    You can’t make yourself gaze in wonderment at how incredible this person is.

    You can’t make yourself feel proud of all that your partner has accomplished, be proud of his or her strength, beauty, intellect and wisdom.

    You can’t just decide the person you love is an incredible specimen because it’s something you must feel.

    Something you must feel in response to interacting and spending your life with this individual.

    In a sense, this is something the person you’re with must inspire in you. You can’t choose to admire; you need to feel inspired to do so.

    As we all know, it takes two to tango. There are countless factors at play, enough to fill several volumes.

    If the relationship is right, feels right, then the majority of these factors line up into place.

    When a relationship is doomed to fail, it’s because admiration is an impossibility.

    Either we aren’t capable of admiring someone, he or she isn’t capable of inspiring admiration in us or vice versa.

    Sometimes there is nothing that can be done to make a relationship work. But sometimes there is.

    Hello Girls: 5 Things Your Guy Doesn’t Need To Know About You….

    Honesty is key to a healthy relationship, but how much info is too much?

    Having someone to talk to and confide in is one of the beautiful perks of being in a relationship. But if you think it’s best to maintain a keep-no-secrets level of closeness, we’ve got to warn you: Not every detail has to be shared.

    In fact, it can be advantageous to keep him in the dark about certain things, like these.

    1. Your Crazy Sex Stories

    Playfully bragging about past s,e.xual endeavors may seem harmless. But does your boyfriend really want a mental image of you and your ex joining the mile-high club? Not likely.

    “It’s bound to tap his insecurity and jealousy, and it never feels good to think about your partner being with other another person,”

    Limit discussions about your s.e.xual history to whether you’ve been checked for STIs, if you have one, and how you want to use protection during se.x.

    2. Trivial Family Drama

    Opening up about emotional issues you or family members have faced can bring you two closer together and it can let you know that he’s a solid, empathetic guy, says Morse.

    But trivial drama, like your mom arguing with her sister about who will host Thanksgiving this year? It isn’t exactly need-to-know information, says Karen Sherman, Ph.D., a relationship psychologist and author of Marriage Magic! Find It, Keep It, and Make It Last.

    If you don’t want to spill why Turkey Day becomes a war, don’t feel like you have to.

    3. A Random Lip Lock With a Guy Friend

    Remember when you and that cute guy from your office made out last year because you had one too many margaritas at happy hour? Yeah, consider that classified info.

    Telling him about that one drunken make out session will leave your partner paranoid that you have real feelings for the guy in accounting, no matter how many times you swear it was the tequila talking, says Sherman. You shouldn’t keep full-blown, past relationships from your partner, but leaving out a lip lock here and there won’t hurt.

    More from Shape: Mindful Minute: Am I Settling In A Relationship?

    4. That You So Don’t Like His Family

    It’s okay if he complains about his parents. But you’re technically an outsider, and your joining in on the gripe session can make him shift gears and feel protective of them, not to mention hurt him because it implies you don’t like the people he loves.

    Unless they’ve done something horrible or disrespected you, let him vent about his family and try not to judge, says Morse. Try to imagine how you would react if the tables were turned before you respond.

    5. Your Cheating History

    Fessing up to this bombshell can have crazy-serious repercussions. “Telling him that you’ve cheated on a previous boyfriend will trigger his insecurities,” says Morse. “Even if he brushes it off, believe me, he won’t ever forget.”

    Translation: He’ll always be secretly wondering whether you’re going to do the same thing to him. Ultimately, it’s up to you. If you deeply regret your two-timing and don’t plan on doing it again, it’s okay to keep this skeleton under lock.

    Of course, what you decide to do is totally up to you, but experts say not fessing up isn’t a deal breaker.

    Ibeh Genius: The Life of a Yahoo Boy, Lessons and Insights.

    Many of us are aware of this old adage “Even a broken clock is right twice a day”, if this is correct, then I will not be making much mistake if I say there’s no completely bad person.

    Yahoo boys are like the rejects in our society from the perspective of a moral Nigerian. They are seen as the bad eggs. These guys have given us a bad name in the international community, they scam and defraud unsuspecting persons of their resources mostly money. Most online shopping websites have blacklisted Nigeria. Our corporate image has been soiled probably beyond repair. No one wants to deal with a Nigerian… so pathetic.

    However, there are lots of positives and lessons that we can learn from them. They are not as bad as some of us think, provided we try to view their actions with an open mind.

    If you read the following, learn from it. Remember “He that has no sin, should throw the first stone (an account in the bible)”

    Passion – Someone said “passion is the fuel that drives our vision”, if that is correct, then anything we do without passion will soon wear us out. A yahoo boy has the drive and passion for his trade.

    He wants to get rich or die trying. His carriage, words, and actions all portray his trade. Little wonder, they can be easily identified in our society. He prides himself in his business and no one can stop him. In some cases he avoids his family members and anyone that decides to talk him out of this dreadful path instantly become an enemy of progress.

    Dedication – According to Bishop David Oyedepo, dedication is deadly commitment to a cause.  From vocabulary.com dedication was defined as committing yourself to something,” like your dedication to marathon training that had you running every single morning for four months. This is what yahoo boys are known for. They are very dedicated individuals, they understand the nature of their business, considering the fact they try to reap where they have not sown; and as such they have to bury themselves into what they do.

    Networking – In my opinion, this is the greatest strength of Yahoo boys. They don’t work or strategize in isolation. They have pubs, clubs and places where they hang out regularly to have fun but ultimately network.  Sometimes his networks extend to law enforcement agencies especially the police. When a Yahoo boy identifies a new opportunity (a potential victim to be coned or scammed), in other words, when he catches a new maga, he immediately looks inward to see if he has handled similar scenario before. If yes, his experience will make it easier, else, he looks in his network for more experienced person(s), if the deal is successful, every stakeholder shares the proceeds according to agreed terms. In most cases, Yahoo boys live together, eat together, flock together and even trade together.

    Hard work – These guys work extremely very hard. They sometimes sit on their computers for as long as 18hrs at a stretch. In most cases these computers must never go off. They labor repeatedly, strategizing and thinking about lies to be told, reading case studies etc. to ensure maga must pay. Much of the time on his computer is also used to communicate with magas, business associates and sourcing for other business leads.

    If a maga becomes too tough or gets smart after so much hard work, he quickly moves on to the next. No emotion, no extra attachment, strictly business. He understands that for him to survive, he needs to be up and running.   He is in constant motion, and never mixes business with pleasure.

    Wasteful – This is rather the most pathetic part of a Yahoo boy’s life. Sometimes it may take him months to make say 10,000 USD but in 24 hrs after making such an amount of money, he might be back to nothing. Greater percentage of whatever he makes is squandered on girls, gadgets, holidays, cars and other stuffs to enhance his swag. He is confident that maga will pay but if for some reason maga gets smarter or refuses to pay, this then takes him to our next discussion.

    Consulting – Just like in the business world, Yahoo boys consult. Some consult with veterans of the trade and the very desperate ones consult herbalists and “fake pastors or alfas”. This is also known as Yahoo plus. Sometimes he runs out of ideas, tricks and strategies, this prompts him to source for a way out. In some cases, he repents of his trade, asks for forgiveness and sources for other legitimate means of livelihood; else he consults an herbalist or people believed to have some spiritual powers to enhance his business. Every form of consulting comes with a cost and the costs are always very harsh, the devil does not have any good gift.

    Disclaimer: The above are my basic observations of a Yahoo boy. As someone who thinks with an open mind, I don’t think there anything wrong in looking at the brighter side of seemingly dark things. Life is a matter of choice, the decisions we make are products of our choices. Every man will account for his life. If you are into this trade, Please desist and spend your time and energy on something enviable.

    SAD!!! See How Ritualist Slaughtered and Drained a Young Boy’s Blood to Become Rich!

    In spite of civilization, some Nigerians have remained as crude as men in the stone age, if not even worse, and the rate at which ritual killings continually increase, makes you wonder, the extent some folks can go in order to join the league of the rich. Here’s a shocking story of how a grown man, slaughtered and drained a 13year-old boy’s blood, just so he becomes a rich man;

    Vanguard:Muyideen Salaam, a 35 year-old apprentice at Aketegbo community in Seme, Badagry area of Lagos, gave this chilling confession of how he killed a 13 year-old boy, Rilwan Amuda, in his crave for materialism.

    The Ibadan-born suspect claimed he was tempted to opt for money ritual after his wife left with their two children when feeding became an uphill task for him.

    According to him: “ I was alone in the video shop club owned by my master when one of my friends named Nuru came and said he knew someone who could make us rich . He told me all that was needed was just the blood of a boy of about 15 years of age. Ritual

    He said all I needed to do was to get the person since he had already contacted a herbalist. In my desperation, I told him we would take Rilawan, mama elewa’s son since I had easy access to him because he usually ran errands for me and sometimes I gave him money and used clothes. We felt it was useless to go out and get someone else since Rilawan stayed in the same area with us. I made him understand that getting someone was not the problem but taking him to the herbalist’s shrine where he would be killed.

    When we told baba our constraint, he gave Nuru a ring and instructed us to just touch whoever we wanted to bring with it , that the person would follow us without hesitation.

    On that fateful day, I called Rilwan and touched him with the ring . To my surprise, he became dumb and followed us to the shrine. We kept him there until it was dark .

    When it was midnight and there was no one in sight, we took him away from the shrine and laid him on the ground. While Nuru slashed his throat with a knife given to us by the herbalist, I held a bowl close to his neck for the blood to pour into it.

    Rilwan did not put up any resistance as promised by baba because he was hypnotized. And his memory was gone.

    After we collected the blood, we gave the bowl to baba and carried Rilawan’s body far away from the shrine to avoid suspicion and dumped it on the expressway so as to give an impression that he was hit by a vehicle. We thereafter, went to bath with the blood as instructed by baba.

    He performed some rituals fore us and mixed the blood with a black native soap and gave us to bath with after which he said we would become rich.

    But after bathing with the substance, by the third day, we did not see any money as promised by baba. We were as poor as we used to be . We were so angry and decided to go to baba’s place to fight with him.

    But on our way, Rilwan’s mother held me and asked me to produce his son for him. She said she was informed that he was last seen with me. She vehemently refused to let go of my trouser even when I denied. This caused a scene and people gathered around me and started beating me. Nuru who was with me managed to escape. Policemen from Seme division came and took me away. It was at that moment I opened up.

    But Nuru who lured me into it is nowhere to be found . I am left to bear the brunt alone . If I had known, I would have continued working for my master where I was paid N1,500 every month. The most painful aspect is that I do not have a mother, father, sister or brother. I am just all alone in the world. I do not want to die even though I partook in killing somebody “, he said in an emotional laden tone.

    After his arrest, policemen reportedly took him to the herbalist shrine where the suspect showed them the bowl that was used to drain Rilwan’s blood. The herbalist identified as Soji Akodiya did not deny demanding for a human blood from Muyideen and his fleeing friend but he stated that the killing never took place in his shrine.

    Out of curiosity , this reporter was forced to ask why he looked so haggard and tattered when he could make money to take care of himself. In response,he looked at the reporter , smiled sheepishly and said, “you will not understand”

    Continuing he said : “ Yes, I told them what they needed for money ritual was human blood. Because money ritual is one of the greatest tasks in our line. I told them they could either use their own blood for it but I believe they never wanted to and brought that of the boy. I was not around when the boy was slaughtered . I did not even know when they brought him. He was not even killed in my shrine….”

    But Muyideen interrupted saying “It is a lie. You knew when we brought him. It was even you that gave us knife and a bowl to put the blood. You even told us not to kill him in your shrine for security purpose and you were aware we were going to kill him that night”.

    But the herbalist ignored the interjection and continued “ I am a herbalist who speacialise in attending to barren women. I also help people to get jobs and also give charms to traders to sell more than their fellow traders. I collect, N50 to N500 , depending on what the oracle demands. It is then left for my clients to appreciate me. I got money ritual charm from a colleague ten years ago when all herbalists went for a meeting in Ijebu-ode . Usually, what we do at such meeting is to help ourselves. For instance, if I have the cure for any disease and others do not, I will give to them and vice visa.

    That was how the baba gave all of us ogun owo (money ritual charm)and instructed us on how to administer to our clients . I have never used it before, this is my first time. It was even when Nuru came to me that I realised I had the charm”.

    Asked why it did work for the suspect and his fleeing partner in crime, the herbalist relied “ it did not work because they did not follow my instruction. The instruction was to bathe with the prepared concoction nine days after its preparation but they used it on the third day. Had they followed the instruction, they would have noticed a total turn around in whatever they set their hands to do . Their businesses would have been lucrative . And if they leave N1000 in the bag, they would wake up to meet triple of what was there”.

    Mystics. Pure mystics. It’s unbelievable the extent many go to get rich. There are the politicians who believe that charms can make them powerful and transport them into powerful positions. Even when the efficacy of these rituals is in doubt, some people still believe that rituals can change their lives for the better. Evil men continue to chase their shadows. One thing is clear. Evil begets evil. There’s a price for every bad thing. Those who indulge in these primitive and devilish tendencies never end up well.

    Hmmmmmm, all I can say is,God help us!

    South African Man Raped At Gunpoint By Three Women

    A 33-year-old South African man was raped at gunpoint by three women, who subsequently collected his semen, stored it in a cooler and fled with it. Afterwards, they abandoned their victim.

    Read Daily Mail‘s report on the bizarre incident:

    The man gave the women directions when they pulled up in a black BMW. Suddenly, one of the women armed with a gun got out and forced him into the back of the car at gunpoint.

    The trio then drove him 500km away and fondled him in the back of the car but he did not become aroused, so they forced him to drink an ‘unknown substance’ from a bottle to aid him.

    They then raped the man repeatedly and collected his semen in plastic bags, placing them in a cooler box.

    The man was then kicked out of the car, 500 km away from where they picked him up in the Kwazakhele township, Port Elizabeth, and made off with the stolen sperm.

    The exact same method is being used by women in Gauteng, who are also forcing men to drink from a bottle and stealing their semen but no arrests have been made.

    “Any Igbo That Votes “jimi Agbaje” instead of “Ambode” would Die in Seven Days” – Oba Of Lagos

    Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, according to Daily Independent gave a stern warning, when he met with Igbo leaders resident in Lagos at his Palace on April 5th – The Monarch, who said he owns Lagos for the time being, made it clear that, he has chosen the governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Akinwunmi Am­bode, as the next governor of the state – And if anyone goes against his choice, that would be their end…

    He said:

      “On Saturday, if anyone of you goes against Ambode, who I picked, that is your end. If it does not happen within seven days, just know that I am a bastard and it is not my father who gave birth to me.

      “By the grace of God, I am the owner of Lagos for the time being. This is an undivid­ed chair. The palace belongs to the dead and those coming in the future. On Saturday, if anyone of you, I swear in the name of God, goes against my wish that Ambode will be the next governor of Lagos State, the person is going to die in­side this water.

      “For the Igbo and others in Lagos, they should go where the Oba of Lagos heads to. When they were coming to the state, they did not come with all their houses. But now, they have properties in the state. So they must do my bidding. And that is the bidding of the ances­tors of Lagos and God.

      “I am not ready to beg you. Nobody knew how I picked Ambode. Jimi is my blood relation and I told him that he could never be governor in Lagos for now. The future belongs to God. I am not beg­ging anybody, but what you people cannot do in Onitsha, Aba or anywhere you cannot do it here.”

    Presidency begins investigation on leaked Jonathan/Buhari phone call

    The matter is being probed to determine where the leak came from – whether from the seat of power or from General Buhari’s camp.

    The Presidency has begun investigations to uncover the person or persons behind the leak of the acclaimed telephone conversation between Nigeria’s incumbent President, Goodluck Jonathan and President-elect General Muhammadu Buhari.

    Jonathan had called Buhari to congratulate him on his victory in the Presidential election last week, but surprisingly, the audio recording leaked online via a Twitter handle @EveryNigerian.

    According to a Punch Villa source, the leak was an embarrassment to the Presidency. The matter is however being probed to determine where the leak came from – whether from the seat of power or from General Buhari’s camp.

    “Definitely, unauthorised release of a raw recording of the President’s telephone conversation, if from our (Presidency’s) end is a security breach that cannot go without being investigated,” the source said…

    Ghanaian Pastor Allegedly Murders His Pregnant British Wife in Cold Blood

    A Ghanaian pastor is on the international news right now, for allegedly murdering his 3-months pregnant British wife in their hotel room in Ghana…

    Charmain Adusah, 41, was discovered by hotel staff face down in a bath where it is believed she had been lying for four days – Meanwhile, her husband Eric Isaiah Adusah, a self-proclaimed prophet and evangelical preacher, was alleged to have left the hotel hurriedly on the day she is believed to have died, after telling Hotel staffs that his pregnant wife was ill and did not want to be disturbed,

    Daily Mail UK reports.

    Mrs Adusah’s body was only discovered after a concerned hotel staff used a spare key to open her room door, when she didn’t answer to the door.

    Now her 28year old preacher husband, whom she married in a whirlwind romance last September, in a wedding that shcoked both family and friends, is being held by Police in Ghana.

    The couple had travelled to Ghana early this month so Mr Adusah could preach at a three-day religious conference hosted by controversial evangelist ‘Bishop’ John Yaw Adu, who has been exposed for chaining up
    mentally ill patients at ‘prayer camps’ for days on end so he could ‘heal’ them through prayer… but they had an argument early in the trip, so he booked himself into a budget motel alone, leaving her to stay with Bishop Yaw Adu.

    The couple settled their difference at the end of the conference, and checked into the Mac-Dic Royal Plaza Hotel in Koforidua, where they booked in for five days on March 1 and that was where tragedy struck, as it was
    reported they also argued throughout their stay.

    ‘I will be leaving office in June – Prof. Jega says he has no interest in continuing as INEC chairman

    INEC Chairman, Professor Attahiru Jega says he will be leaving office in June this year when his tenure as Chairman of the electoral body ends. In an interview with BBC Hausa, Professor Jega said even if he is asked to continue in office, he would not.

    “I am grateful to God. I was asked to come and contribute my own quota to the national development and I have done my bit to the best of my ability. Whatever assignment one will do for five years, just like this difficult one to me, if one is able to successfully accomplish the task, someone else should be given the opportunity. Because for me I am not interested & if I am requested to serve again, I will not do it, by God’s grace” he said.

    Niger Delta militants blow up pipeline in Delta state

    A Niger Delta militant group identified as Urhobo Gbagbako, has blown up the NPDC Oil pipelines at Ighrenene, Afiesere and Ekiugbo communities in Delta State. In an email sent to reporters claiming responsibility for the bombing which occurred yesterday April 2nd, the spokesperson of the group, Priest Omodjuvwu, said the group, which consist of ex-militants, men, women & children of Urhobo origin, decided to blow up the oil pipeline following the continued neglect of the Urhobo militants in the pipelines protection contracts offered to ex-militants from other ethnic groups. 

    Spokesperson of the militant group, Mr Omdjuvwu said they decided to blow up the pipeline to draw government attention and demand to be included in the pipeline protection contracts.

    “We have now resumed attack on the NPDC pipeline facilities on a massive scale, which scale of bombings shall be unprecedented,” the email read.

    The Resident Electoral Commissioner in Kano, Munka’ila Abdullahi, his wife, and two children were burnt to death in a mystery fire in Kano this Friday morning (the Good Friday), and no one has been able to ascertain the cause of the fire…

    There are speculations by some residents that the REC and his family members were killed, others have also claimed the fire was accidental.

    OVARIAN CANCER: Causes,Signs,symptoms

    Ovarian cancer may cause several signs and symptoms.

    Women are more likely to have symptoms if the disease has spread beyond the ovaries, but even early- stage ovarian cancer can cause them. The most common symptoms include:


    »Pelvic or abdominal pain

    »Trouble eating or feeling full quickly

    »Urinary symptoms such as urgency (always feeling like you have to go) or frequency (having to go often)

    These symptoms are also commonly caused by benign (non-cancerous) diseases and by cancers of other organs.

    When they are caused by ovarian cancer, they tend to be persistent and represent a change from normal − for example, they occur more often or are more severe.

    If a woman has these symptoms more than 12 times a month,
    she should see her doctor, preferably a gynecologist.

    Others symptoms of ovarian cancer can include:

    »Upset stomach
    »Back pain
    »Pain during sex
    »Menstrual changes
    »Abdominal swelling with weight loss

    However, these symptoms are more likely to be caused by other conditions, and most of them occur just about as often in women who don’t have ovarian cancer.

    Can ovarian cancer be found early?
    About 20% of ovarian cancers are found at an early stage.

    When ovarian cancer is found early at a localized stage, about 94% of patients live longer than 5 years after
    diagnosis. Several large studies are in progress to learn the best ways to find ovarian cancer in its earliest stage.

    Ways to find ovarian cancer early
    Regular women’s health exams During a pelvic exam, the health care professional feels the ovaries and uterus for size, shape, and consistency.

    A pelvic exam can be useful because it can find some reproductive system cancers at an early stage, but most early ovarian tumors are difficult or impossible for even the most skilled examiner to feel.

    Pelvic exams may, however, help identify other cancers or gynecologic conditions. Women should discuss the need for these
    exams with their doctor.

    The Pap test is effective in early detection of cervical cancer, but it isn’t a test for ovarian cancer. Rarely, ovarian cancers are found through Pap tests, but usually they are at an advanced stage.

    See a doctor if you have symptoms
    Early cancers of the ovaries often cause no symptoms.

    When ovarian cancer causes symptoms, they tend to be symptoms that are more commonly caused by other things. These symptoms include abdominal swelling or
    bloating (due to a mass or a buildup of fluid), pelvic pressure or abdominal pain, difficulty eating or feeling full quickly, and/or urinary symptoms (having to go urgently or often).

    Most of these symptoms can also becaused by other less serious conditions. These symptoms can be more severe when they are caused by ovarian cancer, but that isn’t always true. What is most important is that they are a change from how a woman
    usually feels.

    By the time ovarian cancer is considered as a possible cause of these symptoms, it usually has already spread beyond the ovaries. Also, some types of ovarian cancer can rapidly spread to the surface of nearby organs.

    Still, prompt attention to symptoms may improve the odds of early diagnosis and successful treatment. If you have symptoms similar to those of ovarian cancer almost daily for more than a few weeks, and they can’t be explained by other more common conditions, report them to your
    health care professional — preferably a gynecologist —
    right away.
    Screening tests for ovarian cancer
    Screening tests and exams are used to detect a disease, like cancer, in people who don’t have any symptoms.

    Perhaps the best example of this is the mammogram,
    which can often detect breast cancer in its earliest stage,
    even before a doctor can feel the cancer. There has been a
    lot of research to develop a screening test for ovarian cancer, but there hasn’t been much success so far.

    The 2 tests used most often to screen for ovarian cancer are transvaginal ultrasound (TVUS) and the CA-125 blood

    TVUS is a test that uses sound waves to look at the
    uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries by putting an ultrasound wand into the vagina. It can help find a mass
    (tumor) in the ovary, but it can’t actually tell if a mass is cancer or benign. When it is used for screening, most of the masses found are not cancer.

    CA-125 is a protein in the blood. In many women with ovarian cancer, levels of CA-125 are high. This test can be useful as a tumor marker to help guide treatment in
    women known to have ovarian cancer, because a high level often goes down if treatment is working.

    But checking CA-125 levels has not been found to be as useful as a screening test for ovarian cancer. The problem
    with using this test for screening is that common conditions other than cancer can also cause high levels of CA-125.

    In women who have not been diagnosed with
    cancer, a high CA-125 level is more often caused by one of these other conditions and not ovarian cancer.

    Also, not everyone who has ovarian cancer has a high CA-125 level.
    When someone who is not known to have ovarian cancer has an abnormal CA-125 level, the doctor might repeat the test (to make sure the result is correct).

    The doctor could also consider ordering a transvaginal ultrasound

    In studies of women at average risk of ovarian cancer,
    using TVUS and CA-125 for screening led to more testing and sometimes more surgeries, but did not lower the number of deaths caused by ovarian cancer.

    For that reason, no major medical or professional organization
    recommends the routine use of TVUS or the CA-125 blood test to screen for ovarian cancer.
    Some organizations state that these tests may be offered to screen women who have a high risk of ovarian cancer
    due to an inherited genetic syndrome (discussed in the section “ Do we know what causes ovarian cancer?”).

    Still, even in these women, it’s not clear that using these tests for screening lowers their chances of dying from ovarian cancer.

    Better ways to screen for ovarian cancer are being researched. Hopefully, improvements in screening tests will eventually lead to a lower ovarian cancer death rate.

    There are no recommended screening tests for germ cell tumors or stromal tumors. Some germ cell cancers release
    certain protein markers such as human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) into the blood. After these tumors have been treated by surgery
    and chemotherapy, blood tests for these markers can be used to see if treatment is working and to determine if the cancer is coming back.

    Researchers continue to look for new tests to help diagnose ovarian cancer early but currently there are no reliable screening tests.

    What are the risk factors for ovarian cancer?

    A risk factor is anything that changes your chance of getting a disease like cancer. Different cancers have different risk factors. For example, unprotected exposure to strong sunlight is a risk factor for skin cancer.

    Smoking is a risk factor for a number of cancers. But risk factors don’t tell us everything. Having a risk factor, or even several risk factors, does not mean that you will get the disease. And many people who get the disease may not have had any known risk factors.

    Even if a woman with ovarian cancer has a risk factor, it is very hard to know how much that risk factor may have contributed to the cancer. Researchers have discovered
    several specific factors that change a woman’s likelihood of developing epithelial ovarian cancer.

    These risk factors don’t apply to other less common types of ovarian cancer
    like germ cell tumors and stromal tumors.


    The risk of developing ovarian cancer gets higher with age. Ovarian cancer is rare in women younger than 40.

    Most ovarian cancers develop after menopause. Half of all
    ovarian cancers are found in women 63 years of age or older.


    Various studies have looked at the relationship of obesity
    and ovarian cancer. Overall, it seems that obese women
    (those with a body mass index of at least 30) have a
    higher risk of developing ovarian cancer.
    Reproductive history Women who have been pregnant and carried it to term
    before age 26 have a lower risk of ovarian cancer than women who have not.

    The risk goes down with each full-
    term pregnancy. Women who have their first full-term pregnancy after age 35 or who never carried a pregnancy to term have a higher risk of ovarian cancer.

    Breastfeeding may lower the risk even further.

    Birth control

    Women who have used oral contraceptives (also known as
    birth control pills or the pill) have a lower risk of ovarian
    cancer. The lower risk is seen after only 3 to 6 months of using the pill, and the risk is lower the longer the pills are used. This lower risk continues for many years after
    the pill is stopped.

    A recent study found that the women who used depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA or Depo-Provera
    CI®), an injectable hormonal contraceptive had a lower risk of ovarian cancer. The risk was even lower if the women had used it for 3 or more years.

    Gynecologic surgery
    Tubal ligation (having your tubes tied) may reduce the chance of developing ovarian cancer by up to two-thirds.

    A hysterectomy (removing the uterus without removing
    the ovaries) also seems to reduce the risk of getting ovarian cancer by about one-third.
    Fertility drugs In some studies, researchers have found that using the fertility drug clomiphene citrate (Clomid®) for longer
    than one year may increase the risk for developing ovarian tumors.

    The risk seemed to be highest in women
    who did not get pregnant while on this drug. Fertility drugs seem to increase the risk of the type of ovarian tumors known as “low malignant potential” (described in
    the section, ” What is ovarian cancer?”). If you are taking fertility drugs, you should discuss the potential risks with your doctor. However, women who are infertile may
    be at higher risk (compared to fertile women) even if they don’t use fertility drugs. This might be in part because they haven’t carried a pregnancy to term or used birth
    control pills (which are protective).


    Androgens are male hormones. Danazol, a drug that increases androgen levels, was linked to an increased risk
    of ovarian cancer in a small study. In a larger study, this
    link was not confirmed, but women who took androgens were found to have a higher risk of ovarian cancer.
    Further studies of the role of androgens in ovarian cancer are needed.
    Estrogen therapy and hormone therapy
    Some recent studies suggest women using estrogens after menopause have an increased risk of developing ovarian
    cancer. The risk seems to be higher in women taking estrogen alone (without progesterone) for many years (at
    least 5 or 10). The increased risk is less certain for women taking both estrogen and progesterone.

    Family history of ovarian cancer, breast cancer, or colorectal cancer
    Ovarian cancer can run in families. Your ovarian cancer risk is increased if your mother, sister, or daughter has (or
    has had) ovarian cancer. The risk also gets higher the more relatives you have with ovarian cancer. Increased risk for ovarian cancer can also come from your father’s

    A family history of some other types of cancer such as
    colorectal and breast cancer is linked to an increased risk
    of ovarian cancer. This is because these cancers can be caused by an inherited mutation (change) in certain genes
    that cause a family cancer syndrome that increases the risk of ovarian cancer.
    Family cancer syndromes
    About 5 to 10% of ovarian cancers are a part of family cancer syndromes resulting from inherited changes
    (mutations) in certain genes.
    Hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome
    This syndrome is caused by inherited mutations in the
    genes BRCA1 and BRCA2, as well as possibly some other
    genes that have not yet been identified. This syndrome is
    linked to a high risk of breast cancer as well as ovarian,
    fallopian tube, and primary peritoneal cancers. The risk
    of some other cancers, such as pancreatic cancer and
    prostate cancer, are also increased.
    Mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 are also responsible for
    most inherited ovarian cancers. When these genes are
    normal they help prevent cancer by making proteins that
    keep cells from growing abnormally (they act as tumor
    suppressors). But if you have inherited a mutation (defect)
    in one of these genes from either parent, this cancer- preventing protein is less effective, and your chances of
    developing breast and/or ovarian cancer increase.
    Mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 are about 10 times more common in those who are Ashkenazi Jewish than those in the general U.S. population.
    The lifetime ovarian cancer risk for women with a BRCA1
    mutation is estimated to be between 35% and 70%. This means that if 100 women had a BRCA1 mutation, between
    35 and 70 of them would get ovarian cancer. For women
    with BRCA2 mutations the risk has been estimated to be between 10% and 30% by age 70.

    These mutations also
    increase the risks for primary peritoneal carcinoma and
    fallopian tube carcinoma.
    In comparison, the ovarian cancer lifetime risk for the women in the general population is less than 2%.

    PTEN tumor hamartoma syndrome
    In this syndrome, also known as Cowden disease, people
    are primarily affected with thyroid problems, thyroid cancer, and breast cancer. Women also have an increased risk of ovarian cancer. It is caused by inherited mutations
    in the PTEN gene.

    Hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer
    Women with this syndrome have a very high risk of colon cancer and also have an increased risk of developing
    cancer of the uterus (endometrial cancer) and ovarian cancer. Many different genes can cause this syndrome.

    They include MLH1, MLH3, MSH2, MSH6, TGFBR2, PMS1, and
    PMS2. An abnormal copy of any one of these genes reduces the body’s ability to repair damage to its DNA.

    The lifetime risk of ovarian cancer in women with
    hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer (HNPCC) is about 10%. Up to 1% of all ovarian epithelial cancers occur in women with this syndrome. An older name for HNPCC is
    Lynch syndrome.

    Peutz-Jeghers syndrome
    People with this rare genetic syndrome develop polyps in
    the stomach and intestine while they are teenagers. They also have a high risk of cancer, particularly cancers of the
    digestive tract (esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon). Women with this syndrome have an increased risk of ovarian cancer, including both epithelial ovarian cancer
    and a type of stromal tumor called sex cord tumor with annular tubules (SCTAT). This syndrome is caused by mutations in the gene STK11.

    MUTYH-associated polyposis
    People with this syndrome develop polyps in the colon
    and small intestine and have a high risk of colon cancer.
    They are also more likely to develop other cancers,
    including cancers of the ovary and bladder. This
    syndrome is caused by mutations in the gene MUTYH.

    Personal history of breast cancer

    If you have had breast cancer, you might also have an
    increased risk of developing ovarian cancer. There are several reasons for this. Some of the reproductive risk
    factors for ovarian cancer may also affect breast cancer
    risk. The risk of ovarian cancer after breast cancer is
    highest in those women with a family history of breast
    cancer. A strong family history of breast cancer may be caused by an inherited mutation in the BRCA1 or BRCA2
    genes and hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndrome,
    which is linked to an increased risk of ovarian cancer.

    Talcum powder

    It has been suggested that talcum powder applied directly to the genital area or on sanitary napkins may be
    carcinogenic (cancer-causing) to the ovaries. Some, studies suggest a very slight increase in risk of ovarian cancer in
    women who used talc on the genital area. In the past, talcum powder was sometimes contaminated with
    asbestos, a known cancer-causing mineral. This might explain the association with ovarian cancer in some studies. Since the 1970s, however, body and face powder
    products have been required by law to be asbestos-free.

    Proving the safety of these newer products will require
    follow-up studies of women who have used them for many years. There is no evidence at present linking cornstarch powders with any female cancers.


    A study of women who followed a low-fat diet for at least
    4 years showed a lower risk of ovarian cancer. Some studies have shown a reduced rate of ovarian cancer in women who ate a diet high in vegetables, but other studies disagree.

    How is ovarian cancer treated?

    This information represents the views of the doctors and nurses serving on the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Information Database Editorial Board.

    These views are based on their interpretation of studies published in medical journals, as well as their own professional experience.

    The treatment information in this document is not official policy of the Society and is not intended as medical advice to replace the expertise and judgment of your cancer care team. It is intended to help you and your
    family make informed decisions, together with your doctor.

    Your doctor may have reasons for suggesting a treatment plan different from these general treatment options.

    Don’t hesitate to ask him or her questions about your treatment options.
    General treatment information After the diagnostic tests are done, your cancer care team will recommend 1 or more treatment options. The main treatments for ovarian cancer are:
    »Hormone therapy
    »Targeted therapy
    »Radiation therapy

    Often, 2 or more different types of treatments are used.

    Consider the options without feeling rushed. If there is anything you don’t understand, ask to have it explained.

    The choice of treatment depends largely on the type of cancer and the stage of the disease., The exact stage may not be known in patients who did not have surgery as
    their first treatment.

    Treatment then is based on other available information.
    Other factors that could play a part in choosing the best treatment plan might include your general state of health, whether you plan to have children, and other
    personal considerations.

    Age alone isn’t a determining factor since several studies have shown that older women tolerate ovarian cancer treatments well. Be sure you understand all the risks and side effects of the various therapies before making a decision about treatment.

    What is cancer?

    The body is made up of trillions of living cells. Normal body cells grow, divide to make new cells, and die in an orderly way. During the early years of a person’s life, normal cells divide faster to allow the person to grow.

    After the person becomes an adult, most cells divide only to replace worn-out or dying cells or to repair injuries.
    Cancer begins when cells in a part of the body start to grow out of control. There are many kinds of cancer, but they all start because of out-of-control growth of
    abnormal cells.

    Cancer cell growth is different from normal cell growth.
    Instead of dying, cancer cells continue to grow and form new, abnormal cells. In most cases the cancer cells form a tumor. Cancer cells can also invade (grow into) other tissues, something that normal cells cannot do. Growing out of control and invading other tissues are what makes
    a cell a cancer cell.

    Cells become cancer cells because of damage to DNA. DNA is in every cell and directs all its actions. In a normal cell, when DNA gets damaged the cell either repairs the damage or the cell dies. In cancer cells, the damaged DNA
    isn’t repaired, but the cell doesn’t die like it should.
    Instead, this cell goes on making new cells that the body does not need. These new cells will all have the same damaged DNA as the first abnormal cell does.

    People can inherit damaged DNA, but most often the DNA damage is caused by mistakes that happen while the normal cell is reproducing or by something in our
    environment. Sometimes the cause of the DNA damage is something obvious, like cigarette smoking. But often no clear cause is found.

    In most cases the cancer cells form a tumor. Some cancers, like leukemia, rarely form tumors. Instead, these cancer cells involve the blood and blood-forming organs and
    circulate through other tissues where they grow.

    Cancer cells often travel to other parts of the body, where
    they begin to grow and form new tumors that replace normal tissue. This process is called metastasis. It happens when the cancer cells get into the bloodstream
    or lymph vessels of our body.

    No matter where a cancer may spread, it is named (and treated) based on the place where it started. For example, breast cancer that has spread to the liver is still breast
    cancer, not liver cancer. Likewise, prostate cancer that has spread to the bone is still prostate cancer, not bone cancer.

    Different types of cancer can behave very differently. For example, lung cancer and breast cancer are very different
    diseases. They grow at different rates and respond to different treatments. That is why people with cancer need treatment that is aimed at their particular kind of cancer.
    Not all tumors are cancerous. Tumors that aren’t cancer are called benign. Benign tumors can cause problems – they can grow very large and press on healthy organs and
    tissues. But they cannot grow into (invade) other tissues.

    Because they can’t invade, they also can’t spread to other parts of the body (metastasize). These tumors are almost
    never life threatening.
