Ginger is a flowering plant and its official name is Zingiber officinale. The rhizome, which is the root is what you are likely familiar with. The root is spicy and have a peppery flavor, with loads of medicinal properties. It’s used all over the world in culinary and clinical applications—both for good reason. 
Ginger has been called a super food time and again,  what is it that makes it so powerful? This root has the following superpowers; 

Stimulates Digestion: 
Ginger helps increase the body’s ability to empty food from the stomach more quickly—known as gastric emptying. With this increased motility in the digestive system, it’s less likely that heartburn or indigestion will occur. 

 Lowers Blood Pressure:
Ginger has been shown to improve blood pressure (in conjunction with medication) by acting as a vasodilator—it expands your blood vessels. This is helpful for increasing circulation in the body, which reduces the overall blood pressure throughout the body. Ginger also contains potassium, a mineral that research has found can help lower blood pressure 
 Reduces Nausea:
Nausea is no fun. Whether it’s from motion sickness, morning sickness, post-surgery effects, chemotherapy, or pregnancy, nausea is not an experience anyone wants. And when you do experience an upset stomach, you’d give anything to end it. Ginger has also been found to reduce the amount of nausea you might otherwise experience when seasick. After surgeries, it’s common for some people to experience nausea and vomiting. The good news is that researchers have found ginger to be an “effective means for reducing postoperative nausea and vomiting.” Not only does ginger provide relief from post-surgery nausea, it can also help people who have been diagnosed with cancer. 
In a study of both adults and children undergoing chemotherapy treatments, ginger was found to be effective in providing relief from the nausea that accompanies those treatments. Based on the scientific evidence, ginger is definitely worth a try when you’re experiencing nausea of any kind.

Antibacterial Properties:
If you aren’t convinced of the medicinal properties of ginger yet, you will be now! Researchers have found that ginger is an effective antibacterial for many drug-resistant bacteria in clinical applications. The antibacterial benefits don’t stop there. In oral health, two types of ginger have been shown to inhibit the growth of pathogens that contribute to periodontists (inflammation of the gums that is caused by gum bacteria). The antibacterial properties that ginger possesses show that food truly is medicine. 

 Reduces Menstrual Pains:
Many women know how debilitating menstrual pain can be. Even though there are over-the counter pain medications dedicated to this specific pain, but ginger is your best bet.

The Candidates: Peter Obi Speaks On Deporting Beggars To Akwa Ibom

The Vice presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, says he did not deport beggars to Akwa Ibom State during his time as Anambra state as alleged in some quarters.

Rather, Obi said it was Lagos State Government that deported beggars to their various states of origin, and that he did not engage in retaliatory action to that effect.

The PDP vice presidential candidate made this comment when he featured on The Candidates, a live television programme on the 2019 elections anchored by Kadaria Ahmed on Wednesday, January 30. 

Obi, a former governor of Anambra state also revealed that his wife hailed from Akwa Ibom and that he would rather welcome needy persons from that part of the country, instead of deporting them.



 Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri conceded "maybe I am not able to motivate these players" after the Blues suffered their heaviest league defeat for 23 years. 

Wednesday's 4-0 loss at Bournemouth saw Chelsea slip to fifth in the table.

Sarri kept his players in the dressing room for more than 40 minutes after the game, later explaining he wanted to "talk to them alone, without anybody".

Sarri had previously said his team were "difficult to motivate" - after a 2-0 defeat by Arsenal earlier in January.

The Italian accepted responsibility for the defeat, saying it was "my fault", but after his side dominated possession in the first half Sarri said his players did not play as a team after the break and they "found it difficult to accept" going behind.

Two goals from Joshua King and one apiece from David Brooks and Charlie Daniels sent Chelsea to a second consecutive league defeat, while the Cherries climbed to 10th.

Chris Wise Tweet "At the end of the first half it was impossible to think the second would be a disaster and I want to understand why," said Sarri.

"Just like two months ago when we had to face difficulties, we lost our identity and played as 11 individuals."

Former Napoli boss Sarri replaced Antonio Conte as Chelsea boss in the summer. His side were unbeaten in their first 12 matches but have lost four of their past 12.

Sarri thought the "situation was apparently solved" when they beat Tottenham in the Carabao Cup semi-final last week.

But he said defeat at the Vitality Stadium means his players "need to change something in the mentality".

"You can concede but you need to play because the match was under control in the first half," he said.

"I am frustrated, of course, and it is a very strong setback because we knew this match was very important."


Planning a Travel to Istanbul? Grab These Tips.

1. Getting a Turkish Visa
This is very easy to do and can be done ahead of time online. It costs $20. If you can’t print out your copy, they will accept it on your phone. As of May 2015, you could still get it on arrival as well, but they are phasing that out. It takes 5 minutes, do it online and go prepared. Save this multiple entry visa, just in case you go back while it is still valid.

2. Plan to Walk a Lot
Istanbul can be very overwhelming, because it is HUGE. You can drive for hours in every direction and still be in the city, that is, if you even make it anywhere in the horrid traffic. Traffic is horrendous, which actually makes getting around by foot the faster option sometimes, depending on where you are going.

3. Taxis in Istanbul
Taxis are cheap, so if you’re heading to the airport or somewhere further than walking distance, and take a cab. Just make sure you ask for the meter before you go anywhere.

4. Bazaar Etiquette
Just two quick notes: Try things that people give you in the Spice Bazaar (i.e. Turkish Delight). They expect to give out samples to everyone walking by, so don’t be afraid to say yes, you won’t have to pay for it or be expected to buy anything. Also, don’t be afraid to bargain with the vendors. My bargaining rule of thumb is to try to start at half the asking price and work my way up from there.

5. Watch Your Pockets
Ladies, I ALWAYS recommend a purse that zips closed, and guys, don’t leave your valuables in loose pockets. Don’t make it easy for pick-pocketers to steal from you. This is true for any city, Istanbul is no different.

Accessories can extend your wardrobe and help you achieve multiple looks from one simple staple item.

When it comes to accessories, choosing the wrong ones to accentuate your outfit can lead to an intervention from the fashion police. Our rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings all play an important part in defining our style and completing a trendy look.

However, with such an array of accessories to choose from, it can often feel overwhelming deciding how to choose the best accessories to highlight your features and outfit. To make sure your final touches will make and not break your look, here are our four tips to avoid any fashion accessory missteps. 

SKIN TONE; It is just as important to choose jewelry that not only matches your outfit but will complement your skin tone. A cool skin tone looks best with red, purple and blue gemstones like garnet, amethyst and topaz and matches perfectly with white metals like silver or white gold. A warmer skin tone is highlighted best by shades of yellow, orange and green. If this is you, choose stones such as citrine, moonstone and emerald set in yellow metals like gold or copper. 

CONTEXT AND OCCASION; While we do live in a time where style rules are far less conventional than they were in the past, you still need to pay close attention to context and occasion When choosing accessories for work, big rings and a myriad of bracelets might make it hard to type.
Similarly,you need to keep in mind how an accessory will draw attention to certain body parts and if that will be appropriate for the occasion.

SCALE;you need to consider size when pairing your fashion accessories with your outfit. If you are wearing loud prints, it is best to keep your accessories understated and minimal. The same goes for ruffles, sequined or other embellished garments; you want your pieces to accentuate the outfit not compete for attention. Another thing to keep in mind is the scale and shape of your handbag as well as your body type. If you are tall and thin, choose slouchy bags like hobos. Short women should stay clear of handbags with long straps, and hourglass women look beautiful with medium sized structured bags that balance out their curves. Accessories can extend your wardrobe and help you achieve multiple LOOK.

COLOR;The next thing to consider is the color of your outfit While it is always good to experiment to find the colors that work best for you, don’t use more than three colors in your whole ensemble. If you want to play it safe, opt for colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. These colors work very well together and match each other on the same level of light and darkness.



At whatever age your child begins school, they will likely bring homework. The need to actively take part in your child’s day to day school activities need not be over-emphasized because they feel happy when their parents show great interest in the academic work and other activities; most especially their mum. But most parents might not have the luxury of time or simply do not know the best approach to use.

Here are three fantastic ways is carefully crafted out for you.

A healthy Environment breeds fresh air for learning, so your first bet as that caring parent is to create one! Yes, create one it doesn’t matter where you live. Designate an area of your home for school work it could be anywhere near a kitchen table, a desk in your child's room, or a corner in your home office.

This helps for total concentration, for instance getting a reading table and chair at a convenient place in your home will eliminate your child from doing homework’s in the living room with the TV on! Sounds interesting right?

Take part in a class room lesson, visiting the classroom and sitting in a lesson or more is a great way to get a clearer idea of what your child is learning you may want to find the rules and modalities guiding your child school regarding such approach.

Endeavour to monitor your child school work, be a second teacher to your child, keep track of their assignments. Taking an active role in your child's education can be very beneficial in helping them succeed. One of the most important things you can do is to pay attention to what they are learning in school. Younger children always bring home their homework, and information from their teachers always keep track on what subjects they are working on. In that way you would not only be actively involved in their Education but always cultivate a blissful bond with your little one.



Tottenham are exploring the chances of signing Monaco midfielder Youri Tielemans, Sky Sports News has been told.

One source close to the negotiations has confirmed they are in talks over a possible deal to bring the Belgian midfielder to north London - though another source close to the club has denied they've entered into negotiations for him.

Leicester City remain the favourites to bring Tielemans to the Premier League - possibly with Adrien Silva going in the opposite direction as a part-swap deal.

But Spurs look ready to compete with Leicester over his signature - Monaco want in excess of £20m.

Tielemans is 21, but has already won 19 caps for Belgium and helped them to the World Cup semi-finals in the summer.

He began his career at Anderlecht, scoring 35 goals in 185 games before joining Monaco in 2017.

He is the youngest Belgian to play Champions League football, making his debut in the competition aged just 16 years and 148 days.

There are many women out there who seek out and build relationships with older men, so much so that there is a term for it in the western world, the May—December romance. While many people may look down at couples that have a significant age gap between them, there are some very legitimate reasons why women seek out older men to have romantic relationships with.
The use of the term May—December romance to describe a younger woman dating an older man comes from European culture. The phrase makes use of metaphors of the seasons, with May representing springtime when a woman is her youthful best and December representing the start of winter when the man is past his prime. 

Reasons why some women find older men more desirable. 

Older men maybe better in terms of pleasing and treating women; 

In my opinion, older men have had their fair share of both short-lived and more stable relationships, and this gives them a bit of an advantage when it comes to handling relationships. Their previous experiences have helped them learn what women generally want and what makes women happy.
Not only do they know more in bed, but they also understand women a little bit better. They are also more sensitive to their partner's needs. Older men tend to be more romantic as well. They have a good sense of humor that does not involve shaming their friends or other destructive behavior. Just think about it for a second!
older men have had the time to develop and practice their skills at pleasing women. This experience makes a big difference in comparison to younger men who have not yet put in the same amount of work when it comes to treating and pleasing women. 

More experienced and cultured; 

Men are like wine: they get better with age. Their experiences in life, at work, and in previous relationships have taught them a lot of life lessons to make their situation better than before. They are more mature and understand that things don’t always happen the way they want them to and so they are more understanding and patient with their partners. They know what they want and they go for it. They are very confident and so they carry themselves very well, especially in public. They are generally well-mannered. They have been to several places in the past and so they know a lot of things about other cultures. 

Older men are more financially stable;

Let’s face it!  most women look for men who can support/contribute to them financially. It is all about practicality. When you start a family, for example, it is important that the man is able to provide security. A self-sufficient woman will not easily settle for anyone who doesn't earn at all. For some women in the poorer regions however, they seek out men who are capable of supporting himself because they are the ideal partner. They will not settle for a man who has no job because life is already difficult for them as it is and can't afford additional mouths to feed. Now, from a logical perspective, a typical guy in his late 20's will have fewer savings, less wealth, and fewer assets accumulated compared to what he'll become 20 years later. That is considering that he continued to work and save as he gets older. In this regard, an older man has enough assets and money in the bank to support a family. This is why some women go for men who have stable jobs instead of those who are still generally starting with their career when they are planning to start a family. You don't have to be rich, no, this article is not about that at all. I am not saying that women should depend on their partner financially, no! 
In fact, I admire women who stand up for themselves and accomplish a lot of things on their own. But, some societies consider it ideal for women to stay at home and take care of the kids and for the husband to work to support the family. 

Older men generally look for a serious relationship; 

Men mature much later than women, and normally middle age in men is the age of maturity. This is where they seek a more stable and healthy relationship. This is the age where they usually have pieced their life altogether, and they are now ready for a more serious and deeper commitment. Women who are tired of short-lived and immature relationships can find a more satisfying and more stable relationship with an older guy than a guy in his late 20's for example. Younger men are still at an age where they love to explore and try different things before settling on something more serious. So, if a girl feels that she is ready to tie the knot, or if she is ready for a serious commitment and ready to start a family, a younger man in his late 20's is just not the right person for her. 

Older men generally live a healthy lifestyle; 

They love to drink wine and beer and yes some of them smoke as well, but they know their limitations. The only time this is not the case is when they are having difficulty coping with their own problems which I believe is an exception because older men can generally handle their issues because they are mature enough to solve them. Older men also tend to have at least one or two sports that they really enjoy doing. They maintain an active lifestyle apart from the office. They like spending their money on things like travel and spare parts for their car or bike and not on gadgets and game consoles which the younger men are more inclined to buy. They also understand the need for relaxation time, and they do not feel the need to constantly push themselves into exhaustion like so many younger men. Instead, they take a more focused, laid-back approach. 

Older men have more sophisticated tastes; 

When it comes to the finer things in life like wine, food, beer, traveling, and clothes, older men tend to choose the better quality ones. First, they can afford it (although it doesn't really have to be expensive) and second, they just know that it is good. I repeat, it doesn't have to be expensive.
They also know that when it comes to food and drinks, quality does not always come with a hefty price. You don’t need to eat at a 5-star restaurant to be able to enjoy your food. You can find an affordable place that serves 5-star quality food and drinks with much better service as well.
When traveling, older men avoid touristy places because they know that they won’t get authentic products for the right price and they won’t be able to enjoy the scenery with the entire crowd roaming around. They are happy to sit in one corner where you can have all the views for yourself. Now that takes careful planning, timing, and experience. Older men as experienced travelers, know that.
