How To Increase The Fire Of Love In Your Marriage

Do you still remember the very first kiss you planted on the lips of your wife – The woman you truly love?
What about before the first kiss, the difficulty you experienced in expressing your desire to be intimate with her?

Do you still remember that burning feeling you had, and how unhappy you are when you don’t see her for a long time?
What about the first time you FINALLY made love to her on your wedding day, the impatience to consummate your marriage that wedding night?
If you have been married for over a year, no doubt, those feelings may have started giving way.
For men who have married for several years, those beautiful memories may have faded away completely. But if your marriage still makes you happy, these are some of the most memorable events during your courtship and union.

For some other group of men, who suddenly discovers the true identity of their wives, they may be wondering why they got themselves married to this individual in the first place.
Many marriages today are having…

Health Tips: 7 Early Warning Signals Of A Heart Attack

It may seem as if a heart attack comes out of the blue, but there are numerous symptoms that can sound the alert -- if you know what to watch for. According to a recent Harvard study, only 25 percent of heart attack victims had no prior symptoms. The trouble is, these danger signs aren't necessarily the symptoms you've been warned about. Here are seven early warning signs that could save a life -- yours or that of someone you love.
1. Rapid, pounding, or irregular heartbeat

Sudden, unexplained episodes of rapid, irregular heartbeat and pulse can predate a heart attack by weeks or months. Skipped beats or arrhythmias that aren't accompanied by an increase in heart rate are less serious, though they still need medical attention. However, an irregular heartbeat accompanied by an increase in the number of beats per minute -- what's known as supraventricular and ventricular tachycardia -- can indicate a serious problem.
Scary stat:Ventricular tachycardia, particularly after ex…

Nollywood: Ghanaian Films Banned In Nigeria

Speculation are rife that the once harmonious relationship between the Nigerian movie industry, Nollywood and its counterpart, Ghana’s Ghollywood, is currently under threat as the movie marketers under the aegis of Film, Video Producers and Marketers Association of Nigeria (FVPMAN) has placed embargo  on Ghanaian films with effect from the end of this month.

The association has also resolved to halt the distribution of films produced by non-professionals. It insists that if such film(s) must be distributed at all, it’s right of ownership should be transferred to its members on negotiation.

The FVPMAN chairman, Onitsha branch, Mr. Uzo Godson Nwosu who confirmed this development to HVP, said this position was taken after the association’s general meeting last weekend in Onitsha.

According to him, the decision became necessary following the position taken by their Ghanaian counterparts who have banned the distribution of Nigerian films in their country long time ago.

His words, “starting fro…

Health Tips: Working Overtime May Hurt Your Heart [Study]

Working a lot of overtime may be good for your wallet, but it may be bad for your heart. In a study of about 6,000 British civil servants followed for about a decade, working three or more hours of overtime a day was associated with a 60% increased risk of heart-related health issues, including heart attack, angina, and death from heart disease. Lead researcher Marianna Virtanen, PhD,  disclosed that for the white collar civil servants in the study, working overtime was associated with more type A behavior traits like aggression, hostility, competitiveness, psychological distress, and sleep problems.
'The importance of having a good balance between work time, leisure time, and family time may be more important for the heart than has been appreciated,' she says.

The study participants were enrolled in the larger, ongoing Whitehall II health study of London-based civil service workers begun in the mid-1980s. The data on working hours were introduced in the study starting in the …

Parental Guidance - Stella Damasus

I thought I was done with articles about children and what we expose them to all in the name of trying to be cool parents, parents that know what’s up, that want to show that they have the money to provide everything for their children and also want their kids to go show off in school and among their friends that their parents can afford to buy just about everything for them.

But I have children and I want to make people to understand that there are some things that we are doing wrong. When we say that the younger generation is coming up with all sorts of things and we are worried about what life holds for us because we see them as the future generation and if we do not start to model their minds, their thought processes, the way they think to the right direction, then we have not achieved anything, we haven’t put them in the right state of mind, we haven’t shown them that they have to go through the right path.

I’m a bit worried because everything that is evil, everything that is sinfu…

“Not that I don’t wear dresses, I do, but on very rare occasions. I am still trying to be a lady but I can’t still do without my jeans!”

7 Stages Of Love In Relationship

Yes, to a certain point of your relationship love has several stages where it starts transforming from an innocent attraction to an unconditional love. Here are seven steps to peak of love:

1.   The Start. In this stage love is a very vulnerable feeling that depends on you just like a baby needs his mother to be suckled. If you manage to behave with this feeling in a gentle and subtle way, you will achieve the upcoming stage of the more mature love.

2.   Passion. You want it all and right now! Any hesitation or unfulfilled wishes evoke an inner anxiety. If you're together, everything seems splendid; if something goes wrong-you can't find peace.

Health Tips: microbiologist Advises Women Not To Wash Vagina With Soap

A clinical microbiologist with the National Hospital, Abuja, Dr Kenneth Iregbu, on Wednesday advised women to use clean water to wash the vigina as against use of soap.

He gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

Iregbu said washing the vigina with soap could cause viginal discharge.

He said that many of the soaps women used contained alkaline substances, adding that such substances were detrimental to the well-being of the vagina.

“Washing the vagina does not require more than clean water. Most of the soap we use in bathing are alkaline, so when you use them there, they will alter something at least for some period.

“When women use a lot of cosmetics - alkaline materials - to wash their private parts right inside, you tend to distort the normal PH of the vagina, which is supposed to be acidic.

“So if you go on neutralising the acid by use of alkaline substances, you will encourage the growth of one group of organisms against the other, and could lead …

Microsoft Launches “Surface” To Compete With Apple’s iPad

Microsoft Corp introduced its own line of tablet computers on Monday to compete with Apple Inc’s Ipad. 

The new tablet line, named Surface, includes a consumer device aimed directly at the Apple ipad, and another, larger machine designed to compete with lightweight laptops. Both include a keyboard that doubles as a cover, and both will be powered by versions of the new Windows 8 operating system.

The move breaks with Microsoft’s operating model of the past 37 years, which has relied on computer manufacturers to make and market machines running Windows. It could throw the world’s largest software company into direct competition with its closest hardware partners such as Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and Hewlett-Packard Co.

The new software is the biggest overhaul of Windows in years, and features a new touch-friendly interface dubbed “Metro”. It is scheduled to be available for the Christmas shopping season.

The lighter, thinner version of the Surface tablet, built on an Nvidia Corp chip desi…
