The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo Prampram constituency, Mr Sam George, has called on the government to implement the United Nations (UN) conventions on the statelessness of refugees in the country.
Are you putting off a big project that you really should start today – perhaps holding out for the perfect possible time?
You could be on to something.
Most people decide to make changes in their lives around landmark dates. Mondays and the New Year are obvious choices for initiating a new, goal-oriented behaviour, such as getting started training for a marathon, getting out of debt or striving for a promotion.
One of the most salient truths about relationships is this: You teach people how to treat you. This applies to dating, work, friendships, and every other kind of relationship.
All of your communication, verbal and nonverbal, accrues to show another person how you expect to be treated. That’s why it’s crucial for you to stand up for yourself and refuse to be treated unfairly.
Starting school before 8.30am increases students' risk of suffering depression and anxiety, new research suggests.
Early start times are thought to put pressure on children to get plenty of shut eye, which hinders their ability to sleep and puts them at greater risk of mental health conditions, the researchers believe.
You may already have heard the warnings: Don’t overcharge your mobile phone. Make sure you unplug it from the charger after it reaches 100%. Wait to charge your phone until it’s almost down to 0%. Don’t leave it charging overnight. Or else.
The direness implicit in those imperatives may be overblown, but they're not paranoid conspiracy dictums — you still shouldn't overcharge your phone. Here's why.
For the many students who complete senior high school, a relatively small number make it to the university and other institutions of higher learning. The stark reality is that the vast majority of graduates from the nation`s institutions of higher learning are faced with the challenge of unemployment.
You obviously do not want to be a part of the statistics of unemployment. I will show you what you need to know and do to make the most of the opportunities offered as a part of the university community.
Like 99% of the population, your sex education probably consisted of an awkward biology teacher showing you how to put a condom on a banana, plus some out-of-date annotated diagrams. That's if you had any at all.
Thanks to a myriad of technologies, exposure to sex is greater than ever before, but there's no sign of sex education in schools getting up to speed. The UK government recently blocked plans for sex and relationship education to become a statutory requirement in all schools as part of personal, social, health and economic studies (PSHE). This gap in discussion could have worrying impacts on young adults.
According to a recent McKinsey Global Institute report, the number of people in the global labor force will reach 3.5 billion by 2030 — and yet there will still be a shortage of skilled workers.
The result is likely to be intensified global competition for talent. Rather than assuming we’ll work in one location, in our native culture, we will need new skills, attitudes and behaviours that help us work across cultures.
About two years ago, during a prayer session at a wedding ceremony, a young woman was heard loudly reminding God how long she had waited for a wedding and pleaded that this year God gives her a wedding as splendid and beautiful as the one she was witnessing.
This woman is not alone. Fact is most Ghanaian women are obsessed about wedding. Each day, each moment they think and dream of their wedding; the dress, ring, make-up, flower arrangements, wedding bells and shouts of ‘dondo, dondo’ as they walk down the aisle with a life partner and an elaborate reception.
Never has 'eat your greens' sounded more appealing – it seems that men who eat a diet heavy in fruit and vegetables and more likely to be attractive to women. Researchers from Macquarie University in Australia carried out a small study in which they tested the diets of 43 men.
Scientists used a skin test (bright red, yellow, and orange foods tinge our skin very slightly when consumed regularly) to measure the diets of participants. After, they asked the men to exercise while wearing a clean, unscented cotton t-shirt. After, nine women gave them a big sniff.
So you want to start a business, you’ve found some great co-founders, a pot of seed capital and think you’ve got a cracking idea.
But is there something you’ve forgotten to do? MT bent the ears of a few entrepreneurs who’ve been there, done that, to find out what they wish they’d thought of (or are pleased they did think of) before starting out.
