GUILD-LINES TO BRUSHING YOUR TEETH


Brushing your teeth is an important part of your dental care routine. For a healthy mouth and smile….


-Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush. The size and shape of your brush should fit your mouth allowing you to reach all areas easily. 

-Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won’t do a good job of cleaning your teeth.

-Make sure you are using a good toothpaste.

HERE ARE FEW BRUSHING TECHNIQUES;

-Place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums.

-Gently move the brush back and forth in short (tooth-wide) strokes.

-Brush the outer surfaces, the inner surfaces, and the chewing surfaces of the teeth.

-To clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, tilt the brush vertically and make several up-and-down strokes.

DANGERS OF DATING A MARRIED MAN


TRUTH BE TOLD! Two out of every five men has had an affair by the age of 45. If you're the other woman, you might be in for a lot of hurt and heartache. If you think your married lover is going to leave his wife for you, think again! The fact that he didn't end his relationship with his wife before starting to date you is something you need to seriously consider. You might be in love and believe he is your soul mate, but guess what!? “A real soul mate would not set you on the sidelines." 

If you have eyes for a married guy, you’re probably sitting here looking for every excuse under the sun to rationalise what you’re thinking of doing. But here’s the cold, hard truth: pursuing a married man isn’t worth it! Here’s why;

COMMITMENT ISSUES AND LOST TIMES; The married man might tell you he loves you, or even say his wife never made him feel the way you did. But be careful. He does not have to commit, because he can use the excuse that he is married and he can't leave his wife or the kids need him. He can drag out your relationship for years. You might miss out on opportunities to meet the love of your life and get married. You could end up putting your whole life on hold for this man. You will be the one suffering and waiting. Unless he divorces his wife right away, you just don't know how long you will wait.

TRUST FACTORS; you are dating a married man, after all. This means he has been dishonest with his wife. How can you trust him when it comes to your relationship? What kind of person takes up with someone else while still married? He might tell you he and his wife are both OK with the situation, but you just don't know. He might say his wife is a horrible person and try to put her down, but again, you don't know. It's not a good sign that he'll cheat on someone instead of being honest and working on the relationship. If his wife really is as horrible as he says she is, that calls into question his taste and judgement in women. If he has a pattern of not choosing the right woman for him, that doesn't bode well for your relationship.

GUILT ISSUES; you don't know the nature of his relationship with his wife. However, when you put yourself in his wife's shoes, you see things differently. How would you feel if that happened to you? But in this situation, you are the other woman and you are coming between him and his family. Guilt can set in as you think about what you are doing to his wife.

LONELINESS AND DEPRESSION; you’re going to spend many nights alone when you date a married man. He might give you the excuse that he needs to do something with the kids. You might go a week or more without seeing him. If this goes on for years, you will suffer a lot to live your relationship around his life and schedule. You basically will live according to his whims. You will not be able to call him at home. He will probably spend holidays with his family. The loneliness can cause you to feel depressed as you realise how much you have sacrificed to stay in this relationship with him.

ROBERTO MARTINEZ RULES OUT SELF FROM REAL MADRID VACANT HEAD COACH POSITION

Roberto Martinz was quick to dismiss talk of possible contact with Real Madrid over the vacant head coach position on Friday.
The Belgium boss speculated to be one of the leading candidates to succeed Julan Lopetegui on a permanent basis following his sack at the end of October.

However, Martinez insists his only concern is Belgium national league matches with Iceland and Switzerland, which occur next week.

“I don’t want to say whether I or my agent had contact with real Madrid”, he told a news conference.

“This is irrelevant and would be of little respect in the run-up to the matches against Switzerland and Iceland. That’s what we are doing now”

When pressed on whether Madrid could be an option i his future, Martinez replied. “I don’t want to talk about anything other than the matches against Switzerland and Iceland.

Martinez has long been earmarked as one of the favorite for the Madrid job, along with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

However rumor is building that interim coach Santiago Solari could be offered the role full-time after leading the team to three wins and no goals conceded in three games.

WHY I HAD SEX WITH MY MOTHER’S CORPS, SAID AN 18 YEAR OLD TEENAGER.



An 18-year-old boy, Samuel Akpobome Emobor, has confessed that he killed his mother and slept with her corpse for the purpose of money ritual.

Samuel who hails from Oghara in Delta State committed the act at their rented apartment in Ologbo community in Ikpoba-Okha local government area.

Speaking to newsmen when he was paraded at the Edo State Police Command, Samuel said he was pushed to commit the act by a ritualist who sells drugs in the community.

According to him, “I wanted to use my mother for ritual. I am 18 year old. My father is dead. It was one man called One Love that told me to use my mother for money ritual. He promised to give me N50, 000 if I killed my mother and sleep with her. He said I should cut my mother’s ear and fingers and bring them to him.

“I wanted to cut the ears and fingers before the people came in. I slept with my mother only once. I pressed my mother’s neck to kill her while she was sleeping. The One Love sells drugs. He put something inside the drink he gave and he told me to go and kill my mother.

The day I went to his house with policemen, the man has ran away. I hail from Oghara. I work in a pure water factory.

“I now feel very bad because I was beaten badly by people. I did what the ritualist told me.”

The Police Commissioner, Babatunde Kokumo, said the suspect would soon be charged to court.
