Encourages everyone to know their HIV status

Image
This year’s theme for World AIDS Day, which will be marking its 30th anniversary tomorrow  1 December, will be “Know your status”. Significant progress has been made in the AIDS response since 1988, and today three in four people living with HIV know their status. But we still have miles to go, as the latest UNAIDS report shows, and that includes reaching people living with HIV who do not know their status and ensuring that they are linked to quality care and prevention services. HIV testing is essential for expanding treatment and ensuring that all people living with HIV can lead healthy and productive lives. It is also crucial to achieving the 90–90–90 targets and empowering people to make choices about HIV prevention so they can protect themselves and their loved ones.  Unfortunately, many barriers to HIV testing remain. Stigma and discrimination still deters people from taking an HIV test. Access to confidential HIV testing is still an issue of concern. Many people still only get …

Every drop of water is precious

Image
We use water for many purposes like drinking, washing, bathing, cooking etc. Most of the time we take water for granted. It is only during the summer season we can understand the value of it, when we have to face its shortage. Water is vital for life on earth. All animals and plants need water to survive. Human beings need water the most. Our body itself contains more then 70% of water. Some vegetables and fruits like tomato and water melon contains more then 95% of water. Water is a big necessity of every man or we can say that it is necessary for every living thing. Plants, animals and humans can't live even a day without water. If we don't drink water, one full day we start feeling dizziness. Plants wilt and ultimately can dry if they are not properly watered.

The amount of water needed by a person for drinking, washing, cooking and maintaining proper hygiene is aproximately of 50 liters per person per day. This amount is about two or three buckets of water per person. If we…

The key to success

Image
How do you define success? Is it fame and fortune? A promotion at work? Or is it simply being able to live your life the way you want to? When you look around you on your drive to work, while you are shopping at the mall, or when you go out to your favourite restaurant. Being successful in one way, shape or form is something we all strive for as young people. We all want better lives for ourselves and the people we love. However, what differs among people around the world is whether success is seen as external recognition from our peers and colleagues, or internal peace and joy with the things we do and people we love. If we make a survey of how affluent people in Asia, the Middle East and Africa defined success, a wide array of answers will came up depending on their country of origin. Japanese, for example, defined success as “living an enriching life”; in China, it's “living a more valuable life, where success is more than just money”; and in South Africa, it is defined as a “…

Reasons why youths should invest in Agriculture in Cameroon

Image
Have you ever wanted to become a farmer? I would not be surprised if you said no. Increasingly fewer young people in developing countries are aspiring to lives as farmers After interviewing a lot of youths, we found out the following Youth want to be better educated to get good jobs;Farming is mentally and physically challenging;Youth don’t consider agriculture as a future in part because of a lack of access to inputs and land;Changing norms, especially for women, are creating new opportunities to seek education, employment,Most of them think agriculture is for the poor and the less educated etc. But this I wrong. The discovery of agriculture was the first big step toward a civilized life. Discovery of agriculture is probably the biggest milestone in human history. Agriculture was the backbone of formation of human civilization. After formation of agriculture cities, villages started to prosper so did the art science and logic. Even in the current stock market and globalization age ag…

Coins Trafficking in Cameroon

Image
Astonishing discovery at the Ndogbong district, Douala III district. On November 1, 2018, more than 2 000 000 FCfa coins of 50 and 100 F, contained in 43 bags were seized in a private home. Suspected of being at the head of a trafficking organization of silver coins from Cameroon to Asia, two individuals were arrested. He is a Cameroonian and a Chinese, all 37 years old. This operation owes its success thanks to the denunciation of the neighborhood which had noticed strange behaviors at the home of the suspects. During this trick carried out by the elements of the Territorial Gendarmerie Group of Douala, about twenty slot machines, rare wood species (Bubinga, ebony) but also ammunition were also seized, reports Cameroon-forum. This organized circulation of coins is undoubtedly one of the causes of their scarcity in Cameroonian trade in recent times. MUH PLAVIOUS KIENYUI  NAYD CAMEROON

Future me

Image
Dear Future Me, I see you smiling, sitting so peacefully; you are simply in awe. You're looking at me, the younger, and more naive, more determined, more self-righteous self; you have nothing but love and gratitude for me. You watch me cry on my living room floor, completely bored and unmotivated by life. You see that I am outraged at how stuck I feel. You watch me consumed by more depression tied to how large my body has become; you see me struggle daily. You see the pain I carry around in my heart.
You see my struggle, you see me have momentary outbursts and cry in fits of rage; and you see that I make it through. You see that I'm OK. My pain, my struggles, my issues are not what define me. You see that I make it through this rough patch, and you know that I come out stronger, smarter and more self-aware than ever before.
I see you smile with gratitude for all of the lessons I am in the middle of. The gut wrenching, painful moments of extreme self-hate, followed by harsh ju…
