Social problems faced by women
April 25, 2017

Women of today’s generation are facing a lot of problems, both physically and mentally in their day to day lives. If we look at the statistics we can see that these problems are increasing at a steady pace in recent four to five years. Men alone cannot be solely blamed for all the problems as women of today’s young generation too are to be blamed. But, it is time to improve and protect every girl child and stop them from getting harmed in the clutches of some evil people in our society. Let’s take action together. So, here I am highlighting some major problems faced by our present women community.


Women education has been improved compared to the past decades. Even though a lot of women are still fighting to get their primary education, many are fighting for their higher education. All over the world most of the women, especially in villages, are not aware of the value and importance of education. It is said that educating a girl child is similar to educating a family, in turn, educating the nation.

Child marriage:

Most of the NGOs’ and the government are constantly raising their voice against child marriage. But, still, there are so many child marriages happening all over the world. It is very common among the uneducated parents on the village side. They fail to acknowledge the problems of the child (girl child) which she faces after getting married at a very tender age. This has to be stopped or at least reduced by taking necessary actions.

Dowry or bribe:

Dowry or the bribe giving is a never ending problem. There are so many rules and regulations available out there in the name of protecting the women. But, still, a number of women are suffering from this dowry and bribe torture in our society. I see some men who marry a girl only for the dowry and not for the life and love. They see women as their profit and a money machine.

Sexual harassment:

According to a result of WHO, 1 in every 3 women is experiencing sexual violence in their life. Daily in the day to day life, there are so many women out there facing sexual problems in schools and workplaces. Most of us see or read at least one news daily about a woman or a girl being sexual harassed. With so many regulations and acts of the government, the rate is increasing day by day. Parents on seeing and hearing these they are afraid of sending their girl child out.

Employment opportunities:

Everybody talks about women empowerment and equality but when it comes to employing a candidate everybody wants a male candidate. Even if a girl gets selected for a job either she will get a lower salary than a male candidate of the same designation or she will be ill-treated. Being a civil engineer and a girl, having a good knowledge in my field despite, these most companies rejected me because of my gender.

Are all these fair? Absolutely no. We can’t change all the problems in a single day. But with a good heart, we can stand together and do something in empowering our women.

Time Management for Skills Training

Some hosts are confused about how to manage time in conducting series of training to old or new employees in certain companies. It wasn’t easy but there are some basic ways on how to deliver certain training. The preparation of the things needed should be carried out before hosting the skills training.

First, determine the target or list of participants. Second, send invitation trough emails or notice letter in every department of the company. Third, acquiring the needed materials such as photocopied of modules, equipment, soft copies of the powerpoint presentation, etc. Lastly, set up the venue of the activity.

Once accomplished the physical requirements mentioned earlier, then it is time to follow the simple steps in conducting the skills training are as follows:

  1. State the main topic

It is important to know the main topic of the training session. Some people might think it is so simple to state the main agenda. But then, it can be forgotten. As it was said, the host should always know the flow of the training.

  1. State the main objectives

The main topic will be followed to assure the expectations of the participants. This will guide the host on how to lead the skills training. If not, it would be a chaos situation. The participants can determine if the host is not ready or prepared for the said training session.

  1. Introduce the outline

The outline should be presented prior to giving the full details of it. The participants can able to anticipate which subtopics will be tackled. It is the core of the presentation and participants will have the idea of the training session.

  1. Provide the information

In this part, the full detailed information will be able to deliver. It can be presented through power presentation, photos, actual usage of products and the like. It depends on the host’s style. The most important thing is to give the essential information needed by the participants.

  1. Entertain the issues or concerns

At the end of the training, the host will raise the open dialogue to gather the issues or concerns that needed to be addressed by the host. It is the time for the participants can share what is running into their mind. The issues or concerns will be documented for the possible review on the next training session.

Cancer Is Very Dangerous – What Is Cancer?

cancer is very dangerous

cancer is very dangerous

Cancer already known as malignant tumor is a class of diseases in which a group of cell display uncontrolled growth, invasion, and sometimes metastasis .Most cancers form tumors but some, like leukemia, do not. Cancer affects people of all ages with the risk for most types increasing with age. Cancer caused about 13% (7.6 million) of all human deaths in 2007.Cancers are classified by the type of cell that resembles the tumor, and therefore, the tissue presumed to be the origin of the tumor. The general categories are:
CARCINOMA – Cancer that begins in the skin or in tissues that line or cover internal organs such as lung, breast and colon cancer.
SARCOMA – Cancer that begins in bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, blood vessels, or other connective or supportive tissue.
LYMPHOMA AND MYELOMA- Cancers that begin in the cells of the immune system. Central nervous system cancers – cancers that begin in the tissues of the brain and spinal cord.
GERM CELL TUMOR – Tumors derived from tot- potent cells. In adults most often found in the testicles and ovaries, in the fetuses, babies, and young children most often found on the body midline, particularly at the tip of the tail bone, in horses most often found at the poll(base of the skill)
BLASTIC TUMOR OR BLASTOMA – (Usually malignant)which resembles an immature or embryonic tissue. Many of these tumors are most common in children.
Cancer is the result of cells that uncontrollably grows and do not die. Normal cells in the body follow an orderly path of growth, division, and death. When this process breaks down, cancer begins to form. Unlike the regular cells, cancer cells do not experience pragmatic death and instead continue to grow and divide. This leads to a mass of abnormal cells that grow out of control, bulging out of the skin, forming unwanted bumps with regular or irregular shapes inside the body of the victim. Cancer is very dangerous and the factors that leads to it is best to be examined to enable people know the reasons why cancer comes into a body.

Join No Spank Challenge to have Peaceful Homes & Classrooms
April 13, 2017

Do you spank your children? Would you like to learn how to teach and guide your children by no spanking, punishment and even yelling?


30 April is Internationl SpankOut Day. It is a day to bring awareness to everyone where we need to stop physically punish our children and start guiding them with non-violent alternatives. Many parenting websites or blogs share resources, tools and techniques on the gentle parenting discipline methods, so parents or caregivers will get to learn and stop physically punishing the children.


Amy Bryant from Parenting Beyond Punishment has been having this No Spank Challenge for 4 years. This year, the 4th annual challenge focuses on “Peaceful Homes & Classrooms“. It provides great information not only for parents, but for educators. This online event is usually held in April, and it is free. It is a three week program, which is from 10 to 28 April 2017. There are webinars, teleconferences, live Q&A, articles for us to access and learn from the parenting experts. You might already knew some of the event contributors: Amy Bryant, Lori Petro, Tosha Schore, Robbyn Peters Bennett, Sheena Hill and many more.


We do not only learn to information about stopping spanking or physical punishing the kids from this event, but we also learn how to teach and guide our kids better, with more effective ways and without yelling. There are topics such as “How to get kids to listen without yelling“, “Parenting from our center“, “Dealing with our own triggers“, “Games to teach emotional regulation“, “How to set limits and be heard” really catch my attention. I am not so worried about spanking, as I never spank or hit my children, but I do yell, scold, get angry with them and I am constantly learning how to guide them with positive or attachment parenting methods, which is I would really love to have a peaceful and joyful home. How nice if everyone in the family is happy working and hanging out together at home? I understand this “ideal” condition does not come from our kids. I cannot expect my kids to listen to me all the time, to do what I request them to do or even do more than I expected. I need to expect myself to make a change, to bring harmony to the family, to build better connection with the kids. First of all, I need to learn how to regulate my own emotion before I can teach my kids to regulate theirs.


I am sure it will be a very busy month, as there are so many great information floating around for this event. I will need to allocate time to read the articles and watch the webinars, but still spend good time with my kids. Sometimes I have spent too much time online learning these parenting tips and techniques, but I did not really apply them in real life, as I still get angry and yell at my kids sometimes.

The Purpose of Dumbing Down a Population
April 10, 2017

What I write does not extend to every corner of the Earth all the time.  Like tides, the process comes and goes, depending on the situation.

There are times an educated population is required, there are times when it is rejected.   There are times when education is specifically limited to a segment of a population, times when it is universal.   The decision is political.  It has nothing to do with humanity or the greater good, it has to do with here, right now.

There were periods in history in which the population was dumbed down to such an extent that the term used is ‘Dark Ages’.   There are times when a population enters an ‘Age of Enlightenment’ or a ‘Renaissance’  in which exposure to education is first on the agenda, and people are encouraged to go as far as fast as they can.

The best example in modern times was the situation that existed directly after World War II in which those who attended school in the 1950s / 1960s / into the early 1970s were pushed as hard as they could manage, so as to create a highly educated thinking population.

Everything was done to insure the child born in the late forties/fifties even into the sixties, was given proper nutrition and exposed to the most education they could manage.

In New York City, for example, children in the sixth grade, (eleven/twelve year olds) were capable of reading and doing math at tenth grade level; (fifteen/sixteen year old; First Year of High School) and were put into special programmes.    There were many such children, some ‘skipped’ eight grade, attending an accelerated class which was a combined seventh and eight grade.

University was free and was not ‘watered down’, so that many could gain a very strong education and enter into professional school/Masters programmes as quickly as possible.

Look at a syllabus of a sixth grade class in the mid 1950s and comparing that to a High School (tenth grade) syllabus, what was taught to a twelve year old then is barely reached today.

The process of dumbing down, of creating a stupid population easily led, was the purpose.   For after the upswing of protests in the 1960s – 1970s, America decided to cease producing intellectuals and go for sheep.

Persons who entered school in the 1980s would find an end of streaming, which was created to separate the intellectually gifted from the average intellect.   This is because, in all groups, be they classrooms, clubs, religious organisations, the stupidest person controls.

The stupidest child in that class room causes lessons to be slowed, repeated, and wastes time.  The intelligent child becomes bored.   This is treated by ‘diagnosing’ the intelligent child with one of many fabricated ailments which allows them to be turned into zombies by drugs.

The rich, of course, send their children to private schools, or use home schooling, and/or tutors to ensure the education of their child.   Those who bear stupid children bribe institutions to accept them and keep them.

It is not only in America where the dumbing down process was implemented, in many countries the grandparents, those who attended school after World War II are surprised by the lack of education given to their grand children.

Whether the grandfather had to learn Latin to graduate High School, or the Grandmother had to get an ‘A’ in biology to enter college, the remarkable lack of education is commented on, and, of course, slapped away, for disrespect for the older generation is virtually ‘vaccinated’ into the younger.

The election of an inarticulate, irrational as Donald Trump could never have happened in the 1950s/1960s/1970s.    It happened in 2016 because of the lowered intellect of Americans in general.

It is not only in America, one sees the previously laughable clowns all around the world getting on the ballot, some being elected.    The majority of people are so intellectually damaged that they don’t question; they don’t have the capacity to question.

For example, if a political candidate was to stand up and say; “I will reduce income tax!”   The intelligent would ask how, and request information as to where the shortfall would be made up.   The stupid would vote, then be shocked when property taxes of sales taxes are increased.  But it is quite obvious that the money has to come from somewhere, if it isn’t salary deductions then it would be garnered from some other venue.

The intelligent, who didn’t vote for the ‘tax reducer’ would stand nodding. The stupid who voted for the candidate and elected him, would now complain because they can’t afford to pay their property tax, or that their supermarket bill has increased.

Yet, it is perfectly obvious that if one revenue gathering area is limited then another would be increased.

This reality is clear to those who can think, not to those who can not.  Hence teaching people not to think, limiting their ability to reason, plays into the hands of the demagogue.

Those who can think, those who are educated, who know the connections between burning coal/air pollution/ illness/lower crop yields, which is simply a matter of logic,  can speak, but the dumbed down won’t listen or comprehend what they are hearing.

To create a stupid population isn’t difficult.

Begin at birth and shout ‘the breast is best!’ but do not test the mother to ascertain if she has all the necessary nutriments to be successful.   Encourage the poorest, hungriest, most vitamin deprived to breast feed, and a child with permanent brain damage results.

Do not toilet train.   Do not teach the child self control or command of his/her body.  Let them sit in their own filth until kindergarten.

Do not discipline.  Allow the child to run amok and do what s/he pleases until the child suffers death or injury or becomes ‘uncontrollable’ and can be subjected to zombie drugs, destroying what is left of their brain.

Have mock eduction where children are taught at a very low level so that they can not achieve very much and can join the ranks of unskilled and resort to crime to enable them to survive.

Build many prisons in which one set of uneducated can be employed as warders for another set, take others into the military where they can be disposed of, and leave a small core of elite who are educated and can fill the better jobs.

America has been quite successful in this which has placed them in the position of having to go outside of America to bring in competent skilled workers.   It is not surprising to see Computer firms filled with ex-pats any more than to find ex-pats as doctors in hospitals.   Simply put, the dumbing down has been far more successful than believed.

If other nations, primarily China and Russia, can maintain a highly educated population they will easily be able to out maneuver the United States.   That they have done so, China being able to dump its cheap and poorly made goods in the United States, Russia being able to manipulate American politics, is proof that the dumbing down was not universal.


Go and Do This If You Are Still Desperate For Children 3 Pray for Yourself
Man praying 2

Prayer moves God to change things concerning you

Prayer moves God to change things concerning you

In your prayers,ask your creator,He has” your life’s blue print in His hands” to lift your procreational estate and not to abandon you to laughter,mockery,jeering and insult of satan and his agents ,who act his wickedness.
The Psalmist says,” Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman wakes but in vain. (Psalm 127:1)Remember that God is the author and executor of destinies. If He does not do it, no one else does!.The Lord God gives children.
The Psalmist says,” Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. (Psalm 127:3).I strongly believe that God has not created any person without fruit of the body. Children are heritage from the Lord. This is because; procreation is an extension of God’s creativity. It is a mystery that after nine to ten months married couples bring out their replica and copy. Is it not wonderful?.
Children will surely come if young men and women will respect their bodies and pray without ceasing. The use of contraceptive drugs nowadays has dealt untold blows to ladies who played the harlot when they were young. Then they were not ready to marry. If you kept yourself, wait on God, follow the advices of godly men of God, your maker will surely lift you up from mockery.
See Psalm 75:4-7,which is written thus,” I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn: Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck. For promotion comes neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he put down one, and set up another”. Tell your maker to confirm His word by miracles and wonders of procreation that will keep the open mouths with poisonous tongues shut for ever.It is a one point prayer everyday till your laughter is established by Him who gives children.From today,do not discuss this matter with people as if you have no God.Discuss it with God.Say it,whisper it,gossip it to God alone. God has power to order what the devil had put in disorder.If you know you were promiscous as a youngster,confess to God,get delievered from evil yokes and believe the God of forgiveness.”Brocken and contrite heart,He does not despise”.You may get your own children,depending on the extent of damages you did to your reproductive system.So many ladies are walking the streets with perforated wombs,while some men are parading with disease destroyed reproductive organs.Praying to God changes your situation!

Go and Do This If You Are Still Desperate For Children 2 Relieve a Pastor of Burdens

You want Children? Go and relieve a Pastor of burdens

You want Children? Go and relieve a Pastor of burdens

There are couples whose gifts of children are divinely tied to the pronouncement of their spiritual leaders. The Pastor of the expectant couples gladly prays for the couple presenting their condition to God for relief. The pronouncement of spiritual leaders matter a lot. You can relieve your pastor by buying personal gifts for him-a car, clothes for sewing his wears, provisions, food stuffs, giving scholarship to one of his children, building a house for him or furnishing your pastor’s parlour etc.
Please read this story,” And it fell on a day, that Elisha passed to Shunem, where was a great woman; and she constrained him to eat bread. And so it was, that as often as he passed by, he turned in there to eat bread. And she said to her husband, Behold now, I perceive that this is an holy man of God, which passed by us continually. Let us make a little chamber, I pray thee, on the wall; and let us set for him there a bed, and a table, and a stool, and a candlestick: and it shall be, when he cometh to us that he shall turn in thither. And it fell on a day, that he came thither, and he turned into the chamber, and lay there. And he said to Gehazi his servant, Call this Shunammite. And when he had called her, she stood before him. And he said unto him, Say now unto her, Behold, thou hast been careful for us with all this care; what is to be done for thee? Would you be spoken for to the king, or to the captain of the host? And she answered, I dwell among mine own people. And he said, what then is to be done for her? And Gehazi answered, verily she hath no child, and her husband is old. And he said, Call her. And when he had called her, she stood in the door. And he said, About this season, according to the time of life, you shall embrace a son. And she said, No, my lord, you man of God, do not lie to thine handmaid. And the women conceived, and bare a son at that season that Elisha had said unto her, according to the time of life. (2nd Kings 4:8-17).
You can see from the story of Elisha and the woman of Shunem that she welcomed the man of God into her house, gave him bread and later prepared a transit accommodation for Elisha. She was blessed by the pronouncement of the man of God. At least the cry of a baby was heard in her house only when the man of God “Prophet Elisha “declared blessing on her. The writer of Chronicles, penned, “And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper. (2nd Chronicles 20:20)
Remember, The Old Testament Priest, Eli, confirmed the prayers of Hannah the mother of Samuel. The writer of 1st Samuel submitted,” Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant you your petition that you hast asked of him.(1 Samuel 1:17) .St Matthew recorded that Our Lord Jesus Christ said,” He that receives you(ministers of the gospel) receives me, and he that receives me receives him that sent me. He that receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward. (Matthew 10:40-42)
The declarations of pastors and men of God after blessing them with gifts cannot be over emphasized. Many people have laughed home because they relieved the burdens of pastors.

Go and Do This If You Are Still Desperate For Children 1 Go and Make A Vow
Ekechukwu Samuel August 2014 029

Go and make a vow if you need children

Go and make a vow if you need children

If you are desperate to have a child,go to a Godly priest and make a vow like Hana This is th story of Hana.
See 1st Samuel 1:8-11 Then said Elkanah her husband to her, Hannah, why do you weep? And why do you not? and why is your heart grieved? Am not I better to thee than ten sons? So Hannah rose up after they had eaten in Shiloh, and after they had drunk. Now Eli the priest sat upon a seat by a post of the temple of the LORD. And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore. And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head.
Making vows to God most times make it quicker to have children, but You must keep your vow. The writer of Ecclesiastes penned, “When you vow a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed. Better is it that thou should not vow, than that thou should vow and not pay. ”(Ecclesiastes 5:4-4) When thou shall vow a vow unto the LORD your God, you shall not slack to pay it: for the LORD thy God will surely require it of thee; and it would be sin in thee. (Deuteronomy 23:21)You cannot decieve God or rob Him.
A woman seeking for children went to the church and built a mansion for God.She agreed that her request be granted.At the end of the building construction,she became pregnant and had twins.A boy and a girl.Her dream was multiplied because her husband supported and encouraged her.These days many people make vows and refuse to pay it.Such ones close their road of blessings.
Remember the words of Apostle Paul to the Galatians ” Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever man sows, that shall he also reap”. (Galatians 6:7)

Although inspired, I Didn’t Write About…
April 2, 2017

During research, I came across the fact that the United States of America has slipped to a wiggly eight when it came to being rated as an ‘educated’ nation.

I was inspired to write a long and intricate article as to how the ratings were made, the nations which came from one to seven, the others who were poised to pass the United States.

It was a lot to information, and I almost made the mistake of publishing it here.  I almost did, but recalling my slap downs for “plagiarism”  I didn’t.

I didn’t because there is no way to post; (and I’m totally inventing here to avoid quoting and being slapped down)

“In Atlantis, all children attend a ‘play school’ from the age of three until six in which they are exposed to various ideas.  They visit the zoo on ten occasions and learn about the various animals, from the dragons to unicorns, their habitats and behaviours.  They are taken to the museums and shown many historical exhibits. They go to the planetarium, learn about astronomy.  They are taken on weekend trips to the forests, beaches,  lakes and hills.  This exposure is kept ‘fun’  and is more to pique the interest as these trips are repeated during the next ten years, each time becoming more scholastic, until at the age of fourteen, their knowledge ranges from astronomy to geology, from biology to physics.”

Now there is no way, (imagining that this was an actual quote from Atlantis… which is an imaginary country) that I could change such information substantially to the effect that a plagiarism checker would not flag me.

So I did not post an item about how Singapore, for example, exceeds the United States, for there is no way I can do it without raising the flag.

If I tried to paraphrase, it would either be vague; “Children go to a pre school from three to five where they are taken on many trips to many places to be exposed to many things,”   or dumbed down;  “On weekends the children go to lots of different places to show them different aspects.”

So, it is better I leave it as is/where is.

Having been slapped down for my article about Brasil, and the vast sums they lost on the World Cup and Olympics, and then on my article about Polio, I have become very timid in expressing too many facts and writing items that can be quoted.

Hence, I will say simply that my statement that education in the United States has been dumbed down can be proven, and if one is interested, do on line searches.

Refrain From the Sins of The Fathers It Hinders Procreation.
Genocide in Rwanda

Genocide in Rwanda
The sins of the fathers refer to the breaking of religious or moral laws especially through willful acts of wickedness. Such act becomes an offence against God and man. There are sins of the fathers in the past and even now those who are still on them attract curses not only to themselves, but on their unborn children flowing from their loins.
A curse is a direct calling on God to send evil to some persons or thing deserving punishment. A curse is also “a profane oath” said by an injured victim to a villain-a wicked character or scoundrel. A curse refers also to “an evil that seems to come in answer to the act of wickedness meted to a person or persons especially from the stronger person to a weaker person”.
A lineage curse is “an inherited curse from a father or mother down their lineage, example from a man to his grandchildren and great grand children etc.The children of the villain (the wicked man or woman) continues to have unpleasant experiences in the family life and passage, as a result of retribution, which is a deserved punishment for evil done.
A generational curse is also an inherited curse manifesting as unpleasant experiences extended from a villain-father or mother to his or her children over the years. A generation is 30years.A generational curse appears within succeeding people of the same parents in 30years time and continuously.
The sins of the fathers are clearly spelt in the Ten Commandments handed over to Moses by God. It is a warning to the Israelites and the entire world to desist from the anger of God which falls upon sinful act meted by villains against God and man. To get the passage clearly, let us check this issue in the second book of the Bible Exodus: “Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;”(Exodus 20:5) From the quoted passage, God warns against idolatry and apostacy.See (Exodus 20:4)” Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth”.
