The kitchen is a hotspot for bacteria and parasites. This is why good kitchen hygiene during both food preparation and cooking are extremely critical in terms of preventing food borne illnesses. 

Bacteria may sit on kitchen counters, stick to your raw meat, and end up contaminating all those delicious foods. These being germs, they are for the most part responsible for bacteria caused illnesses. Many people tend to assume that diarrhea and other forms of sickness only come due to food poisoning from outside our homes. While you may never guarantee 100% protection against a diversity of food borne illnesses, there are several simple good kitchen hygiene precautions which you can implement towards reducing the risk.

Here are 10 must-follow kitchen hygiene rules: 

Wash Your Hands! Germs can very quickly and easily spread between our hands into food, so keeping clean hands before initiating in any food handling process is essential. Washing hands properly when you are going to touch raw meat, especially after visiting the toilet or using the kitchen bin significantly helps in reducing the spread of several types of harmful bacteria. 

Proper Food Storage: is as critical as correct cooking. When storing cooked food in your fridge or cooler, ensure it is at room temperature or even lower. Placing warm food inside a fridge implies it has not cooled evenly and could as such, cause food poisoning.

Cook Food Thoroughly: you are perhaps thinking this is obvious stuff! But you will be surprised by the number of people who actually under cook their food. With under cooked food, there is a higher risk of harmful bacteria getting ingested which may trigger food poisoning. All animal foods ought to be cooked to a minimum of 170 ° F, if you want to get rid of viruses, bacteria, and parasites which bring food borne illnesses.

Clean Up and Down: after cooking, keeping a clean kitchen is very important. It is estimated that the average kitchen chopping board carries more faecal bacteria compared to the average toilet seat. Damp kitchen sponges and washing brushes are known bacteria havens. Washing your kitchen and wiping down your equipment with the good hygiene products greatly reduces cross-contamination risk dramatically.

Regardless, when feelings begin to fade in any relationship, it can hurt, or be confusing, if you can’t pinpoint an exact moment things went awry. I’m by no means an expert on love or friendship, but seeing as I’ve been through the gamut, here are some tried and true ways to deal with the inevitable end of your most treasured bonds. And know that if something fades and you grow apart, that’s OK—sometimes it happens. 

Talk to each other about it. 
First things first. If you feel the slow fade in action, talk about it. Maybe your partner or friend doesn’t realise they’ve been distant or they’re taking forever to respond to a text or maybe they’re cancelling plans too often. 

If it doesn’t work out, don’t beat yourself up. 
Let's say you’ve tried to talk things out but that didn’t help or maybe even made things worse. Maybe it’s something that you don’t feel you can or should fix. That’s OK. Sometimes it makes the most sense to make it a hard break-up instead of a soft fadeaway. And sometimes, in order to heal, that means de-friending this person on all social media fronts, avoiding the places you might run into them, or ridding yourself of any physical memories you’re holding on to. 

. Reach out to new people, too! 
On the flip side, if it’s a close friendship you’re losing, reach out to some people you might’ve kept in your acquaintance circle. I know this sounds daunting but sometimes the only way to move on is to gather whatever support you can. Your next new BFF might be at that work meeting you never went to or that party you didn’t go to. Take some chances and put yourself out there for new experiences. You might be surprised at all the things you have in common with your hairdresser, mailman, or barrister! 

Give yourself space. 
Losing love or a friendship that meant something to you is taxing. Give yourself permission to do nothing. No, really! Spend this time on you, what you love to do, discover who you are. Another person cannot fill you up. You have to do that on your own. Use this time to do that, unapologetically, and you’ll come out of it stronger than before. 

Reach out to other friends. 
If you’re going through a never-ending, silent break-up, good friends can rescue you from seeing the bottom of an ice cream carton alone or bring you some when you need it!. Friends not only find the humour in situations but they make good shoulders to cry on, too, so even if it’s hard or not in your character to reach out when you’re in need, ask for help, compassion, whatever it is you need. That’s what friends are for, right? 



Breast cancer is cancer that forms in the cells of the breasts. 

After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women in the United States. Breast cancer can occur in both men and women, but it's far more common in women. 

Substantial support for breast cancer awareness and research funding has helped create advances in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Breast cancer survival rates have increased, and the number of deaths associated with this disease is steadily declining, largely due to factors such as earlier detection; a new personalized approach to treatment and a better understanding of the disease. 

Signs and symptoms of breast cancer may include:

• A breast lump or thickening that feels different from the surrounding tissue

• Change in the size, shape or appearance of a breast

• Changes to the skin over the breast, such as dimpling

• A newly inverted nipple

• Peeling, scaling, crusting or flaking of the pigmented area of skin surrounding the nipple (areola) or breast skin.

• Redness or pitting of the skin over your breast, like the skin of an orange 

A breast cancer risk factor is anything that makes it more likely you'll get breast cancer. But having one or even several breast cancer risk factors doesn't necessarily mean you'll develop breast cancer. Many women who develop breast cancer have no known risk factors other than simply being women. 

Factors that are associated with an increased risk of breast cancer include: 

• Being female

• . Women are much more likely than men are to develop breast cancer. 

• Increasing age.

• Your risk of breast cancer increases as you age.

• A personal history of breast conditions.

• If you've had a breast biopsy that found lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS) or a typical hyperplasia of the breast, you have an increased risk of breast cancer. 

• A personal history of breast cancer.

• If you've had breast cancer in one breast, you have an increased risk of developing cancer in the other breast.

• A family history of breast cancer.

• If your mother, sister or daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer, particularly at a young age, your risk of breast cancer is increased. Still, the majority of people diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of the disease.

Inherited genes that increase cancer risk.

Certain gene mutations that increase the risk of breast cancer can be passed from parents to children. The most well-known gene mutations are referred to as BRCA1 and BRCA2. These genes can greatly increase your risk of breast cancer and other cancers, but they don't make cancer inevitable.

Radiation exposure. 
If you received radiation treatments to your chest as a child or young adult, your risk of breast cancer is increased.


Being obese increases your risk of breast cancer.
Beginning your period at a younger age. Beginning your period before age 12 increases your risk of breast cancer.
Beginning menopause at an older age.

If you began menopause at an older age, you're more likely to develop breast cancer.

Having your first child at an older age.

Women who give birth to their first child after age 30 may have an increased risk of breast cancer.

Having never been pregnant. Women who have never been pregnant have a greater risk of breast cancer than do women who have had one or more pregnancies.

Postmenopausal hormone therapy.
Women who take hormone therapy medications that combine estrogen and progesterone to treat the signs and symptoms of menopause have an increased risk of breast cancer. The risk of breast cancer decreases when women stop taking these medications.

Drinking alcohol.

Drinking alcohol increases the risk of breast cancer.

Amapakabo, Will Continue As Olympic Eagles Coach Not Salisu–NFF Chieftain

Imama Amapakabo is set to continue in his role as the chief coach of Nigeria’s Under-23 team – the Olympic Eagles despite earlier press statement from the Communication Department of the NFF on Thursday announcing that Salisu Yusuf had served out his one-year ban over bribery incident, reports.

Yusuf was in charge of the team before he was caught on camera taking bribe from journalist posing as football agents, an action which earned him a year ban, prompting the NFF to draft in Imama to take over the side. 

However, a controversial press release on Thursday came from the federation’s Director of Communication, Ademola Olajire suggesting what might have been a reinstatement of Yusuf.

But a top NFF board member in an exclusive chat with Complete Sports revealed that there was nothing like reinstatement of Salisu Yusuf.

He said: “It’s not the NFF [board] that will review the situation. And definitely for Imama [Amapakabo] doing well, the Technical Commitee will surely confirm him to continue with the U-23.

“For your information, even the WAFU Cup, NFF plans to use largely the U-23s so as to prepare the team, and it is Imama that was asked to submit the list and he has done so.”

Amapakabo on Tuesday led led the Olympic Eagles to qualify for the 2019 U-23 Africa Cup of Nations which will take place in Egypt in November after spanking Sudan 5-0 at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba, and winning it 5-1 on aggregate.

“People around you should understand that you cannot please everyone all the time.

“It usually ends up being a terrible move whenever you try to do that amongst people who fails to understand, or lack appreciation for even the little you do.

“We can only appreciate the sermon of ‘Give and it will come back to you…’ when you are in position to give.

“There’s always going to be someone disappointed, so you might as well make yourself happy and Be You. ‘Givers never lack’ no mean say make you lack sense.

Reality film on life in Chibok wins US award

Daughters of Chibok
Daughters of Chibok, a virtual reality documentary of life in Chibok without the remaining 112 kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls, has won an award in the United States, courtesy of the Venice Film Festival.

The film, produced jointly by a film making firm, VR360 Stories, and a Yola-based regional nongovernmental organisation, the Northeast Humanitarian Hub, portrays life in Chibok through the home of a mother, Yana, who regularly washes the clothes of her kidnapped daughter in the wishful expectation of the return of the daughter.

The virtual reality mode of Daughters of Chibok differentiates it from the more widely known regular documentary productions in the sense of its capacity to virtually take the viewer from wherever he is to the depicted scenes which he sees as vividly as if he were there.

The film had been shown at different times to different audiences earlier this year in Nigerian cities, including Yola where it was shown in August to journalists and civil society leaders.

Daughters of Chibok portrays the misery of life in Chibok without the missing girls and appeals to the sensibilities of relevant authorities on the need to bring the girls back.

The Chief Executive of VR360 Stories and producer of the film, Joel Benson, who received the Venice Film Festival award in the US on Saturday night, said in a video clip on the event, that he dedicated the award to the woman in the story, Yana.

He said it was a deserving honour to her for sharing her story with him, and that because of the award, “the world will hear of Chibok and remember the girls still in captivity.”

FIFA World Cup 2022 emblem unveiled

World football governing body, FIFA has unveiled the official emblem for the 2022 FIFA World Cup to be hosted by Qatar in 2020

The Arab country is getting set to give the world a taste of something almost entirely different as the countdown draws closer.
The official unveiling took place in Qatar’s capital, Doha, at 20:22 local time on Tuesday, with thousands of spectators witnessing the synchronised projection of the emblem onto a number of the country’s most iconic buildings, including Burj Doha, Katara Cultural Village Amphitheatre, Ministry of Interior, Souq Waqif and Msheireb and Al Zubarah Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

According to a statement on FIFA website, the emblem’s design embodies the vision of an event that connects and engages the entire world, while also featuring striking elements of local and regional Arab culture and allusions to the beautiful game.
“The swooping curves of the emblem represent the undulations of desert dunes and the unbroken loop depicts both the number eight – a reminder of the eight astonishing stadiums that will host matches – and the infinity symbol, reflecting the interconnected nature of the event.

“Besides echoing the shape of the iconic FIFA World Cup Trophy, the emblem’s central form takes inspiration from a traditional woollen shawl. During winter months, shawls are worn around the world and in the Arab and Gulf region in particular by a variety of people and in various styles.

Two stadiums are already in completion stage, while FIFA said the remaining six venues are scheduled to be completed before the end of 2020, including the spectacular fanar lantern‑inspired Lusail Stadium, which will host the opening match on 21 November, as well as the final on 18 December 2022.
