The General Manager of Paragon FM and the Chief Servant at AdFocus who equally doubles as  an artist manager has advised bloggers in the Western Region to pay attention and blog about the activities and achievement of artists based in the region.

His comments was based on an interview a Tadi artist  Singlet granted on an entertainment show hosted  by Feeling Daddy.

In his view the artist who is currently promoting his single “Play Man” stated that he never saw any story about his travel to Dubai to shoot a music video with Guru on any website and that Tadi bloggers do not support local artists. This comment generated a heavy debate on social media and Ralph Menz just couldn't resist but added his piece.

He equally advised our local bloggers to make Tadi bigger than the outside world sees it by  creating local  stories to promote the creative industry in the region.

MY ALL NEW FULANI CORNROW CRAZE

MY ALL NEW FULANI CORNROW CRAZE

The year 2017 really came with some interesting hair styles and the latest  that has caught every young lady in the Sekondi Takoradi metropolis and as a matter of fact the whole country's attention is the Fulani Cornrow.

Going through various social media handles from Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest  and even on twitter, i realized that was the latest hair trend and ladies where rocking it really well.

After going throw so many photos I realized the season was all about Fulani braids. 

Upon seeing  some features of the Fulani Hairstyle which includes the  incorporation of beads, cowrie shells and other hair jewelry,  placing a center braid or roll down the middle of the head and a wrap braid around the periphery of the hairline as well as  forward facing cornrows by the ears, I concluded it was satanic.

After a while I decided to read about it and was blown away with what I saw and the articles people have written about the Fulani Braids . Before my research I knew Alicia Keys had rocked it before and was even part of her brand.

Then with the help of Wikipedia, all fears were allayed. Now my turn to tell you more about this Fulani Braids
Fulani’s are one of the largest ethnic groups in the Sahel and West Africa, widely dispersed across the region and the new craze was one of the common traditional hairstyle for their women.

Many Fulani trace their beginnings back one thousand years to the Senegambia area. By the eighteenth century some had migrated as far east as the Niger and Benue Rivers (now in Nigeria). In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, some Fulani populations adopted the Islamic religion  and initiated jihads (holy wars) in several parts of West Africa.

Today, one finds both nomadic, pastoral Fulani and settled Fulani. The pastoral Fulani (full-time cattle keepers) move about with their cattle for much of the year. In contrast, the settled Fulani live permanently in villages and cities. Although both groups share a common language and origin, they regard themselves as only distantly related.Fula's  have a fascinating culture, and one vibrant feature of it is their intricate hairstyles. 

As new and current  as you might think this hairstyle is am sorry to tell you it existed way back. It took me an hour to get my Fulani braids beautifully done and all i needed were 2 packs of mesh and some plain rubber beads and i was good to go. Take a chill pill and join the frenzy. a

PARAGON MELLOW WEIRD WACKY WEDNESDAY

BILLBOARD

A New York judge has stopped an impending auction of pop star Madonna's personal items, including a love letter from her ex-boyfriend the late rapper Tupac Shakur, a pair of worn panties and a hairbrush containing her hair. A Manhattan state Supreme Court judge Tuesday ordered Gotta Have It! Collectibles to pull 22 items from its rock-and-roll-themed auction scheduled for Wednesday. The Material Girl sought an emergency court order saying she was "shocked to learn" of the planned online auction of the Tupac letter and had no idea it was no longer in her possession. She says it's "outrageous and grossly offensive" her DNA could be auctioned. An auction house spokesman tells the New York Post the allegations will be "challenged and refuted" in court.

The crew of a police helicopter filmed people sunbathing in the nude, naturists at a campsite and even a couple having sex, a court in Britain was told on Tuesday, the BBC reported. South Yorkshire police officers Lucas, Walls, and pilots Loosemore, and Reeves, each denied charges of misconduct in public office when they went on trial in Sheffield in the north of England. Former police officer Adrian Pogmore, 50, had previously admitted to the same charge. The people recorded included two naturists at a campsite in 2008, a mother and her daughters sunbathing nude in 2007 and a couple having sex in their garden in 2008, the prosecution told the court. Footage taken by the crew of the couple was said to have shown the woman involved waving up at the helicopter at one point.

QUIRKY THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT JAPANESE

Most tourists heading to Japan expect to experience bizarre and perhaps even downright weird sights and sounds. Although the Internet and popular media exaggerates Japanese culture somewhat, the country is proud of its eccentricities and kooky nature. A visit to Japan can be very confusing, so it’s worth finding out about some of its quirks before you book your flight.

Bowing is Very Important

You probably know that bowing plays a huge part in Japanese culture, but the intricacies and subtleties of bowing can be take years to fully understand. For example, an informal bow is made at a 15 degree angle while a formal bow is at 30 degree angle. Also, if one person bows for slightly longer than expected, the other party will bow again in return. This can lead to a succession of gradually diminishing bows between two people.

Some Vehicles Sing

Don’t think you’re going crazy if you hear a truck or car singing in Japan. Some vehicles talk or sing when they are reversing, and police cars and ambulances say which direction they are going and thank other cars for moving out of the way.

Women Only Areas

It can be a common sight to see ‘women only’ signs in Japan. Some Internet cafes, hotel areas and apartments are strictly for women, and there are even pink train carriages during the morning rush hour which are a male-

No Eating in Public

If you start eating on a busy train or while walking down the street in Japan, expect to receive a few glares from passers-by. Many Japanese people consider it rude to eat in public. It is common to see people crowding around vending machines in Japan because they prefer to immediately drink and eat their purchases rather than do so while walking around.

Tips to improve your health if you sit at a computer all day 

You may have heard that the workplace is contributing negatively to your health. We spend at least one third of our lives at work, so developing healthy habits in the office can help improve our quality of life. Here are five simple, practical tips you can start using today to stay healthy at work:

Switch your seat

If you’re mainly working from an office all day, try sitting on an exercise ball for some of your day. This strengthens your core and works different muscles. In the last few years, several researches have deemed that sitting is the smoking of our generation. Other alternatives are using a standing desk and alternating between sitting and standing throughout the day, and walking during your meetings.

Drink plenty of water

This helps with headaches from screens. Try to drink two (or more) 40 oz. of water a day each day. If you have a difficult time remembering to drink water at work, set a timer on your phone reminding you. Another trick for staying hydrated throughout the day is to always keep a full water bottle in plain sight.

Get regular massages

There are many benefits to getting a massage, such as reducing stress levels, relieving workstation related muscle tension, and maintaining energy levels. Make it a point to treat yourself to a massage every so often.

Move around

The key is to do some kind of activity every day. It doesn’t have to be a five-mile sprint. A walk to and from work, taking the stairs, or doing some light stretching can keep you healthy, even if you stare at screens all day.
