What are the causes, initial symptoms and treatments of cervical cancer?
16. December 2020 at 16:40
by Mansi Chhikara
Cervical cancer occurs in the cells of the cervix in the lowermost part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. Various strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection, play a role in causing cervical cancer.

Cervical cancer occurs in the cells of the cervix in the lowermost part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. Various strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection, play a role in causing cervical cancer. When exposed to HPV, the body's immune system typically prevents the virus from harming. However, in a small percentage of people, the virus survives for years causing some cervical cells to become cancerous cells. The risk of developing cervical cancer can be reduced by having screening tests and receiving a vaccine that protects against HPV infection.

Causes of cervical cancer 

Cervical cancer begins when healthy cells in the cervix develop changes in their DNA. The accumulating abnormal cells form a tumor. Cancer cells invade nearby tissues and can brea...

Resolving the 5G phobia: What Big Tech can do
16. December 2020 at 16:40
by Chukwudike Ukeje
The emergence of 5G technologies has brought a sort of unprecedented phobia across the globe. While many people may have little or no knowledge about the modus operandi of the technology, this article looks into some of the ways big tech. companies can help to salvage the situation.

Lately, there have been a lot of claims that 5G technologies cause a series of serious illnesses. The Belgian government at the beginning of the year halted a 5G test in the country over radiation and health concerns. In Europe and across the world, citizens have come out to campaign against the implementation of 5G networks in their environments. However, many of the claims on the harmfulness of 5G technologies are wide conspiracy theories as there are no known technological or scientific findings backing them up.

Recently, Howard Jones, the head of communication and technologies at one of the UK’s top mobile network provide...

United States of Africa: An African Elitist Revolution
16. December 2020 at 16:38
by Nana Kwaku Asamoah
The idea of a United States of Africa is curiously an African elitist revolution and Africans need to truly understand what it is.

I am an optimist about life. I refuse to go along with the opinion, fashionable in some corners, that the fortunes of Africa can’t be turned around or that there are no solutions to Africa’s problems. The impression that Africa is doomed forever is a shambolic dated thought I refuse to accept. If Africa garners the will and the necessary courage, the fortunes of the continent and its people can be turned around. I also profoundly believe that there is no more noble cause than dreaming up ideas, galvanizing support for those ideas and implementing them to help transform the lives of millions of people.

But, first and foremost, it must be realized candidly and very unblinkingly quite how stuck and paralyzed the African continent has become in the...

Reflection of a Young Sierra Leonean
16. December 2020 at 16:38
by Jeremiah Thoronka
Growing up in Sierra Leone was filled with hope for a better future. We sang the national anthem pouring out our hearts, we pledged, we happily sang about the then 12 districts and the 7 major rivers of Sierra Leone.

As the ages of been naive goes away, we started hearing some amazing stories of these major rivers, we were spanked to remember Rokel River (386 km), Sewa River (340 km), Jong River (230 km), Little Scarcies River (260 km), Rokel River (260 km) and Moa River (190 km), Great Scarcies (101 km) etc. 

As I reflect on how far we have come as a nation, what have we achieved from all these amazing rivers? The 50 MW Bumbuna Hydro project brought a lot of relief during its preliminary stages but has it lived up to expectations? A study conducted by Pöyry Energy GmbH for the ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) found the theoretical hydropower potential for all rivers in Sierra Leone to be an estimated 4381 MW, quite exciting right? As a nation what have we achieved? It’s a ...

Coronavirus: Blessing or Curse
16. December 2020 at 16:30
by Mahd Sheriff
While the world views Coronavirus as a lurking monster looming around globally threatening lives and escalating fear and panic, there's another face of Coronavirus hiding amidst all turmoil that we don't clearly see.

While the world is going through a pandemic conundrum igniting global shutdown, sparking confinements and quarantines, cancellations and indefinite travel bans swirling around the normal lives of the masses. The chaos will soon fade away but this normalcy that we see today will not be tommorow. The chaos of Coronavirus perhaps seems to a blessing in disguise hard to see and understand.

While the fears of Coronavirus is radically initiating global lockdowns, curbing flights, transportations and productions it is also deliberately stopping us from polluting the planet and has drastically reduced carbon imprints,air polluti...

2020 has been a very unexpecting year and the world has been attacked by a pandemic. People from from different backgrounds and conditions in the whole world are affected and are still suffering. In spite all the difficulties, people did not give up and are still fighting!

 The year 2020 had a good start; people hoped for better things but no one knew or could imagine that a pandemic was waiting for us in the same year. This all started actually in China according to the people and the news in the end 2019. The doctors found out that it was a disease called covid 19 and could not be treated easily and did not have any vaccine. This was very dangerous and created a very big impact and problem not only to the affected people but also to the whole world. This caused a global pandemic.

As I mentioned, it started in China and a few people were affected and it was also shown in the news but no one considered it very serious. But later on, when the people started to travel and communicate in different places, people noticed that many were getting infected and some also died. This terrified...

Evaluating the performance of OGDCL-NTHP Program
16. December 2020 at 16:29
by Muhammad Attique Shah
As we all agree on this little stance that education is backbone behind development of any nation. So this article tries to evaluate the performance of OGDCL-NTHP Program that is being run by Sukkur IBA University. Till now, more than 1200 students are pursuing free education in one of top ranked business schools of Pakistan.

According to Pakistan Higher Education Commission report for 2013-14, there are over 3 million students enrolled in grades 13 through 16 in Pakistan's 1,086 degree colleges and 161 universities. Majority of students prefer to study in their hometowns, and after subtraction of those, good guess would touch 0.5 million students who are studying in regular programs while preferring to continue their higher education in some prestigious institutes of the country. Most of students have satisfactory financial background to fulfill their educational needs. Some of them middle class background. While some, and this comprise of majority of students, are financially less privileged. This is the group where a poor guy is faced with inferiority complex. Of course, it seems bid difficult task to provide a world class educat...

"Who is John Galt?"
16. December 2020 at 16:28
by Maulline Gragau
In the last few months, Ethiopia has witnessed internal strife that has led to internet shutdowns, demonstrations, and arbitrary arrests of citizens and journalists who have dared to challenge the government apparatus as it were. I recently had the opportunity to have a chat with one such journalist, who has been threatened and intimidated because of their articles.

As a defender of truth, the journalist has been keen on making the government accountable through their opinion pieces in one of the popular newspapers, Addis Fortune. It would seem that their critical appraisal of the government's performance has rattled some people in Prime Minister's Abiy's administration who have since resorted to fear and intimidation tactics. The journalist's experience made me think of John Galt and what he represents in our current society. You are probably wondering:

“Who is John Galt?”

Well, this is the question that is posed at the very outset of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged. While the book has faced its fair share of criticisms, it is an ...

Many pandemics around the globe had taken lives of millions of people in the past. In the age of globalization, lives of people all over the world are interconnected which made the current pandemic grow relatively at a fast pace than was ever imaginable,and it will take some time for people to adjust themselves to the new normal.

Many pandemics around the globe had taken lives of millions of people in the past. However, this pandemic, which started in late December 2019, has taken a shift from the previous ones. In the age of globalization, lives of people all over the world are interconnected which made this pandemic grow relatively at a fast pace than was ever imaginable. To this, many people are in deep shock whether how and when will this end. International researchers are putting in their effort to create a vaccine that can cure the infected ones. Meanwhile, international donor agencies are helping people worldwide by providing medicines and other relief measures. However, many are still wondering about the post-pandemic scenario and how it will shape their lives.

The corona virus also termed as COVID-19 is basically a virus that causes severe acute ...

Don’t Let Anyone Tell You You’re Too Young

There’s no doubt that entrepreneurship is challenging. You’ll need to build a diverse set of skills, work with a wide range of personalities, and often spend long nights building your brand. Can you do it at 16 or 18? Of course you can!

Honestly, I didn’t know exactly what it would take to succeed when I created Scope Marketing at 16, and I’ve learned a lot since then. But despite everyone who told me to wait until I was older, I managed to grow my company into a leading marketing brand in just two years.

I couldn’t tell you that building a business is easy. That said, I can tell you that anyone can do it if they have an innovative idea and the will to turn that idea into a concrete reality.

Some people see my story as one in a million, but I hope it inspires young people around the world to pursue their dreams, regardless of their age or any other obstacles. I want to cover three seemingly simple ideas that completely transformed my outlook and helped me reach the point I’m at today.
