The sad story of a young woman who almost lost her life due to serious bacterial infection.She’d only made a careless mistake, something which all women can do.Everything started when she fainted in her bathroom one day.Before that,her health had worsened and she has experienced excessive hair loss. She also lost a couple of nails.When she reached the hospital, doctors diagnosed her with a toxic shock due to an unusual bacterial infection caused by tampons.As her health deteriorated rapidly,doctors had no other option, but to put her in an induced coma.This was the only way she could survive the treatment. 8 days she was brought back,but she couldn’t remember anything.In fact,she couldn’t even recognize her daughters.Specialists are trying to raise awareness among women and young girls that tampons can pose a serious health risk unless used adequately.Proper hygiene of the intimate parts is a must, especially during a period, and tampons should be changed frequently.In fact, they should never be left inside for more than 8 hours because the blood, warm and wet environment create the perfect environment for proliferation of life-threatening bacteria.

One death is just too many': Parents told to put high-vis vests on kids as they cycle and walk to school.
WITH CHILDREN ACROSS the country already in school over the last couple of weeks, parents are being urged to think about their safety on their route to school and ensure they are visible to drivers and other road-users.For the seventh year running, the Road Safety Authority (RSA) and ESB Networks will distribute free high visibility vests to every child in school. Speaking to today, RSA chief executive Moyagh Murdock said children are particularly vulnerable road users are they “don’t have the same hazard perception” as adults.“So really the message is to get them as well protected as possible and make sure everyone is aware of them out there,” she said. The back-to-school campaign is aimed, in particular, at children who cycle to school as the number of cyclists killed on the roads this year has risen.However the RSA is also encouraging parents to dress their children in high-visibility gear for the walk to school or the bus stop, especially in the winter months.“Even walking to the bus stop, some of the bus stops are not much more than a pole in a footpath that says ‘this is where the bus stops’ and the lighting isn’t great around them, and they’re small and people aren’t expecting to see somebody small out there. The evenings will draw in very quickly, we can even see now the weather has changed for August, really as the evenings draw in, make sure the children are out there with the reflective clothing,” Murdock said.“Thankfully, this year the numbers of school children involved in serious and fatal crashes and accidents like this has not been as bad as some years, but always one is just too many. What we do know is that if you’re wearing high-vis clothing you’re much more likely to be seen.”
A hate preacher who told children as young as three that martyrdom is the "supreme success" while encouraging support for ISIS at his charity-funded mosque is facing jail.Iman Kamran Sabir Hussain, 40, asked Allah to "give the Islamic State the victory" during a sermon in Stoke-on-Trent during Ramadan.His audiences included Asian men and young children aged between three and 15, according to an undercover law enforcement officer named Qasim who recorded some of the meetings.Toddlers could be heard babbling as Hussain talked about bullets, sword wounds and killing on one of the tapes.He said: "What's the nature of life? That you are killed, that you kill and that you are killed. This is your part of the contract...to fight in the way of Allah, to kill and be killed."In return for this Allah will give you an everlasting life of pleasure."Hussain also referred to an "eternal life of enjoyment" before claiming that martyrdom was "the supreme success".Children's voices were also heard as Hussain referred to going before Allah on Judgement Day "with the bullet wounds and the sword wounds and you are raised in that situation with the blood still coming from your body".Hussain was found guilty of six counts of encouraging terrorism and two counts of encouraging support of a proscribed organisation following an Old Bailey trial.The court heard he was jailed for 14 months in 2008 for perverting the course of justice by intimidating jurors outside a trial he was due to give evidence in as a defence witness.He stood in the dock wearing a skullcap as the jury announced their decision after nine hours and 44 minutes deliberation.Hussain will be sentenced on September 28.
"I will continue to rock these braids in solidarity with young girls and women who look like me, and for those who don't."MP speaks out on body shaming.
This is Celina Caesar-Chavannes, the MP for Whitby, Ontario, and she is not here for body-shamers.This MP Called Out Body-Shaming In The House Of Commons And People Are About It.On Wednesday, Caesar-Chavannes wore her hair in braids to the House of Commons and launched into a speech standing up for women with natural hair.
"This week I have my hair in braids, much like I’ve had for much of my childhood," she said.
"However, Mr. Speaker, it has come to my attention that there are young girls here in Canada and other parts of the world who are removed from school or shamed because of their hairstyle.
"There have been numerous reports of girls and women targeted by their schools or workplaces for having natural hairstyles.
"Mr. Speaker, body-shaming of any woman in any form from the top of her head to the soles of her feet is wrong," Caesar-Chavannes told the House.
"Irrespective of her hairstyle, the size of her thighs, the size of her hips, the size of her baby bump, the size of her breasts, or the size of lips, what makes us different makes us unique and beautiful.
"She then said she'd continue to rock her braids for three reasons,
the first being "they look pretty dope.
"She also said she was wearing them in solidarity "with young girls and women who look like me, and those who don’t."
"I want them to know their braids, their dreads, their super curly afro puffs, their weaves, their hijabs, and their headscarves and all other variety of hairstyles belong in schools, in the workplace, in the boardroom, and yes even here on Parliament Hill."

I want to crave the indulgence of all Ibadan people, especially the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII) and the Mogajis. I want to suggest that all Ibadan indigenes fight and ask for Ibadan State.I don’t know why Ibadanmesi are so silent about Ibadan State. Ibadan needs to join the old regional capitals which had, for many years now, been made new states in their own right, for example, Kaduna and Enugu. Therefore, it should be possible to carve out a State from the densely populated Oyo State. Ibadan people, please do this for next generation to be proud of you and for the sake of your ancestors too.
