5 most mysterious un-contacted tribes

Mysterious un-contacted tribes still exists in some of the most isolated regions of the world. Members of theses tribes have maintained traditions long left behind by the rest of the world and want nothing to do with civilization. After some research and findings here are the 5 most mysterious un- contacted tribes.

1. The Sentinelese
The Sentinelese are the indigenous people of North Sentinel Island in the Andaman Islands of India. One of the Andamanese people, they resist contact with the outside world. They are among the last people to remain virtually untouched and un-contacted by modern civilization. A National Geographic team was forced to turn back after the lead team member got an arrow through his thigh, and two local guides were killed.

2. Mashco-Piro tribe, Peru
Through the jungles of Peru, a tour group found itself face to face with members of an unknown tribe. Everything was captured. The tribe tried to communicate with the tourists but since the tribesmen didn’t know either Spanish or English, they soon gave up and left them where they’d found them. After inspecting the tape Peruvian authorities realized that the tour group had stumbled upon one of the few remaining tribes unknown to anthropologists. Scientists had known about their existence and had been searching for them for years without success.

3. The Suma People
The Suma tribe of Ethiopia avoided all Western contact for years. The Suma lived in groups of a few hundred and carried on with their humble cattle ranching for centuries while colonization, World Wars, and struggles for independence were going on all around them. The first people to hold a conversation with the Surma people were a few Russian doctors in the 1980s, thought by the tribesmen to be the walking dead because of the color of their skin.

4. The Amazon Tribes
The Brazilian government has been trying to find out how many people live in the isolated Amazon regions, for reasons of population control. In 2007, a routine low-flying photo operation suddenly came under fire by arrows shot from the bows of a previously unknown tribe. And then in 2011, a satellite sweep managed to find a few specks in a corner of the jungle no one thought was habitable: it turns out that the specks were people.

5. The New Guinea Tribes
In New Guinea, there remain dozens of languages, cultures and tribal customs still unknown to modern man. But due to the largely uncharted terrain and the unknown character of tribal inhabitants amid reports of cannibalism, rural New Guinea is seldom explored. While new tribes are discovered every so often, many expeditions that depart with the purpose of tracking them down are cut short and sometimes they simply go missing.

Signs you expect too much from your relationship

Have you ever wondered if you expect too much from your partner? First of all, you should know that there is no perfect relationship because we all make mistakes since we’re only human. We all want our partners to be there for us when we need them but do we consider their needs or desires? People often tend to measure unconsciously whether their partner is good enough for them. There is a lot of research that shows that people’s expectations tend to influence their relationship satisfaction, always try to pay attention to what you want from your partner and see if your demands are reasonable.
Here are ways to tell if you expect too much from your partner;
You feel your partner is not good enough for you: Do you often feel that your partner is not good enough for you? Do you think you deserve more but you don’t know exactly why you think this way? Apparently, your partner seems to be doing everything right but you still feel like your relationship is missing something. Well, have you ever considered that maybe you are just expecting too much from them? We are responsible for our own happiness, it’s not somebody else’s job to make us happy.
You are obsessed with your partner’s faults: If you seem to be focusing only on your partner’s faults, on what they do wrong, and you tend to neglect all the wonderful things that they do for you on a daily basis, you should consider the possibility that you may be a bit too demanding. We all make mistakes and we all have flaws; nobody’s perfect and neither are you.
You have high expectations of your partner: We all want to feel loved and accepted for who we are with all our flaws and qualities, but sometimes, we tend to idealize our significant other. We expect them to be romantic, cute and funny all the time and no matter how busy or tired they are, they should always do everything in their power to make us happy. Well, we all have bad days, so try to give them a break every now and then, take some initiative and be the one who helps them feel better.
You expect your partner to read your mind: This is one of the most common mistakes that couples make; they want their partner to know exactly what they want, without telling them what thing it is. Especially if they are in a committed long-term relationship, they feel like their partner should understand them without having to explain themselves.
You want a sensitive partner: Do you often feel like you deserve a sensitive partner? Of course, we all want to be with someone who understands us, who cares for us, who makes sure that we are safe and who is very attentive all the time. Well, there’s no such thing as the perfect partner. Instead, try to be the perfect partner yourself and see what effect this attitude will have on your significant other’s behaviour.
You think your partner is lucky to be with you: I’m sure you are a great girl and that your partner really is lucky to be with you but have you ever considered seeing things the other way around? Do you consider yourself lucky to be with someone as wonderful and caring as your partner? Do you notice their qualities or all the amazing things that they are doing for you on a daily basis?
You think about starting a new relationship when you feel frustrated: When your partner frustrates you, do you often contemplate ending your relationship or starting a new one? When you are having a fight, do you always blame your partner for all the things that go wrong in your relationship? Try to reevaluate your behaviour and see what are the things that you don’t do right because for a relationship to work, both partners should put in the effort and not only the expectations.
 Always try to be objective and see if your expectations are reasonable.

Ways to prevent kids from domestic accident

It may surprise you to learn that nearly 45 percent of unintentional injury or deaths of children happen in or around their homes. Even though when you think of injury,  you think  harm that occurs somewhere other than your own home;  It is an ideal thought that our homes should be the safest place for our family, loved ones, and ourselves. The best way to prevent accidents or injuries in the home is to make ensure you take the necessary safety precautions.
Here are some simple fixes you can make in your home to ensure that you do your best to prevent domestic injuries:
Clean up spills immediately: When there is a spill of liquids, grease, or anything else you could slip on, clean it up as soon as possible to avoid falls.
Secure rugs: To prevent rugs from moving around and causing slips, secure them with nonskid pads or preferably purchase rugs with slip-resistant backings. Another alternative is to use double-sided carpet tape to keep the rug in its place.
Beware of where you put hot liquids: If you have young children in the house, always be weary of where you put that cup of hot coffee. Refrain from placing hot liquids on a table that has a runner or table cloth hanging over as the child may pull on the fabric causing the liquid to spill on them. Also do not leave hot liquids in a place where children can reach it.
Install grab bars in the shower: For anyone who is unsteady on their feet such as an elderly family member, a shower can be a very dangerous place. Installing grab bars could help prevent disaster should they slip.
Check your hot water heater: Children and the elderly are more susceptible to burns from hot water. Make sure your hot water in the heater is always at 120 degrees Fahrenheit or lower to best avoid unintentional burns.
Keep electronics away from water: This seems to go without saying yet accidents involving electronics and water still happen every year. Do not keep electronics near water, in a place where they could fall into the water or a child could pull them in.
Check your basement and garage. These areas of the home are often used for storage, with that comes the risk of tripping over things. Check that these areas have a clear path to walk in and make sure boxes are stacked securely so that nothing falls on anyone.
Keep guards on all tools and store out of reach: Power tools come with safety covers for a reason. Be sure to keep all safety covers on the tools. Also, store the tools out of the reach of children or in a locked tool chest.
Stair safety: Stairs can be the cause of accidents for many different reasons. To best avoid falls make sure your handrail runs the full length of the staircase, carpets are secure, and do not put area rugs or mats at the base or top of the stairs. Also if you paint basement stairs it will be beneficial to add some sand to the pain to give the stairs more traction. For outside steps that are not well lit, paint the edges white so they can be seen in the dark.
Keep cleaning products out of reach: All cleaning products should be stored in a place where kids and pets cannot get to them. Put them in a cabinet with child-proof locks or better yet store them in a high cabinet.
Other Preventive measures include;
Never tell children drugs are “sweets” as this may give a wrong idea to children.
Choose toys appropriate to the age of children. Avoid toys with detachable small parts.
Never let children use milk bottle by themselves without adult’s supervision.
Never leave children alone in a bath tub or basin filled with water.
Bucket filled with water must be covered and kept away from children.
Keep floors free of toys and obstructions.
Windows and doors must be locked to avoid misadventure by children.
Avoid placing “step-stones” such as a chair next to a window.
Always store chemicals in their original containers with appropriate labels.
Accident cannot be completely avoided, but its occurrence can be minimized or prevented completely. Therefore, to prevent domestic accidents in children, adults should always pay more attention to home safety. Parents should also clear any hidden “hazards” in the house and teach children about safety. If accidents happen, it is advised to stay calm and call for help immediately.
Remember, taking the proper precautionary measures can help you escape deadly outcomes, and save numerous properties and lives.
Always be on the watch out for domestic accident.

Mourinho plans massive clear-out at Man United, set to spare only 7 players

It is believed that Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, is planning a major clear out at the Red Devils and only seven players are reportedly safe in the clear-out. Mourinho hopes to have a squad that can compete with Pep Guardiola City side for next season Premier League after the Citizens were confirmed winners of this season's League. The Irish Independent report that manager Jose Mourinho has had it with many of United players, and very few are safe in the summer. Mourinho would be willing to consider the sale of pretty much any players except David De Gea, Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic, Jesse Lingard, Ashley Young and Juan Mata. They are currently the only ones who have his full trust. The Red Devil sources are keen to point out that such swings have been a trend of Mourinho's time so far, and that his moods have been greatly influenced by the most recent big results. That has led to transfer plans drastically changing from month to month - in a way that just would not happen at Manchester City now due to their approach - and it is possible that victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semi-final at the weekend could cause another reversion.

39-year-old dropout owned a clinic at Mushin, Lagos state

The Lagos state police command has arrested a 39-year-old fake medical practitioner, Abdulrahman Mohammed, for allegedly owning a clinic and practicing medicine for four years without any license. Mohammed, who dropped out of primary school, reportedly has a clinic in Idi-Araba area, Mushin, Lagos state where he administered intravenous injections to patients and prescribe drugs for ailments, The Punch reports. The Lagos state commissioner of police, Edgal Imohimi, while parading the suspect on Monday, said: “On April 14, around 12am, detectives from the Area D Command, Mushin, arrested a native of Ran village, in the Gamboru Ngala local government area of Borno state, for operating as a medical doctor whereas his education stopped at primary school level, even though there is no certificate to authenticate that claim. “Further investigations into the activities of Mohammed, who had been impersonating a medical doctor for the past four years, revealed that he had been administering intravenous injections, conducting medical tests on his patients and taking their urine and blood samples. “The suspect confessed that he bought his drugs from Idumota Market. Exhibits recovered from him include blood pressure monitors – manual and electronic – syringes, drip packs both saline and sugar solutions, among others. The suspect will be charged to court as soon as investigation is over.”
Mohammed, however denied practicing medicine and claimed he was only a chemist who prescribed drug for people. He said: “I stopped school after primary six. I started selling drug and injections in 2014, but I don’t give people injections or drips. Some people came to check their blood pressure. If a customer says he has a headache, I can sell Panadol to him. I buy my drugs at Idumota. Nurses come to buy from me.” Admitting that he prescribed the drugs by merely guessing, he also said he couldn't tell the exact number of patients he had catered to, stating that sometimes the drugs worked and other times it may have harmed them. The Imo-state indigene who ran a drugstore at Seriki Aro street, Ikeja, Lagos, confessed after he was arrested, and some of his drugs were picked as exhibits.
