Former President, Jerry John Rawlings set to form new political party

Information reaching my desk indicate that former President, Jerry John Rawlings and his wife, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings have formed a new political party by name, National Democratic Party which is yet to be registered.
It is speculated that the formation of this party is intended to split the National Democratic Congress formed by them in 1992 and now taken over by the sitting President, John Evans Atta Mills, who was once his vice president.  The former president who championed the cause of victory for the NDC in the 2008 general elections feels he and his wife have been neglected and relegated to the background in the activities of the party.

Her death came less than a month after a Pakistani filmmaker won the country's first Oscar for a documentary about acid attack victims.
Younus' story highlights the horrible mistreatment many women face in Pakistan's conservative, male-dominated culture and is a reminder that the country's rich and powerful often appear to operate wi…

Coitus after 50?

Hi good people of blog ville,

I've missed you so much, I read this on the net and wish to share with you. Source will be duly acknowledged. Read on.

Coitus after menopause? Some experts will tell you it’s a downhill ride of waning sex drive and dried up hormones.

Sorry, we’re not buying it. We happen to think there are plenty of 50-plus babes who are rocking it just as much as in their younger days. (See Madonna.) And there’s no reason the rest of us shouldn’t too.

“You’re not bothered by menses. You’re not bothered by kids in the house. You can have sex in any room in the house,” says Irwin Goldstein, MD, the director of San Diego Sexual Medicine at Alvarado Hospital. “You can have the greatest sex life on earth.”

No pregnancy worries
Sex in your 40s can be great, but you may still be making school lunches, wiping noses, juggling a career, and trying to avoid pregnancy.

“Forty to fifty is still an anxiety point for many women because you can still get pregnant,” says Margaret E.…

What makes you wear the shoes you wear?
