A young man has been left brokenhearted after his girlfriend of six years left him to go and marry another man.

According to a Twitter user, Papi Cazorla, who shared the story on social media, the guy had been dating the lady without much problems.

Though they had be planning in the last two years to get married, things had not materialised and the guy was trying his best.

Recently, there had been pressure mounting from the girl’s family for the guy to come perform the marriage rites.

To get the pressure off, the jilted man had planned to go and do a knocking ceremony for the lady on her birthday in July 2019.

But in the morning Friday, June 14, 2019, the guy received a call from one of the friends of his woman to come to the Suntreso Hospital in Kumasi.

Thinking that the girlfriend had been hospitalised, he took some money and hurriedly went to the hospital.

When he got to the hospital, he saw his girlfriend and the lady who had called him. The two of them handed him an envelope and upon opening it, he realised his girlfriend was getting married to another man.

The lady is getting married to her old schoolmate who has just returned from abroad.

In an obvious bid to ‘compensate’ the guy who is a photographer, she was asking him to take up the photography job for her wedding.

The story as shared by the Twitter user has got diverse reactions. While some think he got what he deserved for wasting the girl’s time, others have sympathised with him.

Good nutrition is the foundation for a healthy body, sharp mind, and the energy required to get you through your day. So many foods are heralded for their ability to build strong bones, improve cardiac health, or maintain blood glucose levels. Those are all great and necessary aspects of health. But you may wonder what you can do to nourish and protect the skin that houses the whole package that is your body.

Since the first thing others notice is your face, it is only natural to want to present a face that is fresh, youthful, and glowing with health.

Your diet contributes to the health of your skin as well as your other body systems.

Here are 12 foods you can indulge in to keep that fresh glow.

1. Fruit

Fruits are rich in antioxidants, which prevent cell damage by free radicals. This means that not only will your skin be protected from the ravages of free radicals, so will your heart and your brain.

The fruits richest in antioxidants are those that have vibrant colors. Colourful blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries all contain powerful antioxidants. So do vibrant purple grapes, shiny red apples, and bright red tomatoes.

2. Vegetables

Leafy and dark green vegetables also contain powerful antioxidants that can contribute to healthier, younger-looking skin.

Broccoli contains vitamin C, vitamin A, and zinc, which are important for healthy skin. Studies show that a diet rich in the phytonutrients from plants can help protect skin against sun damage.

Flavonoids, beta carotene, lycopene, and lutein are some of the nutrients that help in the fight against damage caused by the sun’s rays.

Choose vibrant vegetables like dark green spinach, bright orange sweet potatoes, and collard greens for a healthy body and younger-looking skin.

3. Fatty Fish

Fish like salmon, tuna, mackerel, and herring are rich in the omega-3 fatty acids that fight inflammation. Omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce the inflammation caused by exposure to the sun’s rays and decrease the risk of skin cancer.

Indulging in fatty fish twice a week will treat your skin to the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids while also providing your body with the healthy fats it needs for optimal function.

Vitamin E provided by these fish is also an antioxidant that can protect your skin from free radicals.

4. Olive Oil

Olive oil is another source of vitamin E, which protects against tissue damage. Olive oil contains polyphenols that not only improve the health of your skin, but also prevent heart damage, cancer, and inflammation.

No matter how good your skin looks, you need to be healthy enough to enjoy it. In addition to eating foods cooked with olive oil, you can use it topically.

Apply olive oil as a moisturizer or rub it into fingernails to revive dry, brittle nails.

5. Beans

Black beans are rich in anthocyanins, antioxidants which prevent cell damage. Soybeans contain isoflavones, which have been studied for possible anti-aging effects.

Beans and other legumes, which include lentils and chickpeas, are also good sources of nutrients such as iron, potassium, folate, and magnesium.

These nutrients are important for the maintenance of healthy skin and tissues. Legumes are also a rich source of protein, the building blocks for the body’s cells.

6. Green Tea

Green tea is made from the unoxidized leaves of the same plant, Camellia sinensis, that makes black tea. Since the leaves have not been oxidized, they are powerful storehouses of the antioxidants that prevent cellular damage.

This means drinking green tea is another delicious way to prevent cancer, heart disease, and inflammatory diseases. It also means green tea can help your skin retain the youthful glow and firmness that signal good health.

Enjoy a refreshing, icy cold bottle of green tea on the go. Or curl up at the end of a long day with a soothing, hot cup of green tea and a good book.

7. Almonds

The almond is a tiny powerhouse packed with fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants. A one-ounce serving of this nut provides six grams of protein.

It also contains manganese, magnesium, and a whopping 37 percent of the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of vitamin E.

Almonds provide nutrients that rejuvenate your skin from the inside out. Additionally, almonds are included in beauty products such as topical lotions, moisturizers, lip balms, and bath gels.

8. Acai Berries

The acai berry comes from palm trees in subtropical areas of Central and South America. They have become wildly popular and touted as a “superfood” for their high concentrations of phytochemical antioxidants.

While these berries may not be any more “super” than other anthocyanin-rich fruit, they make tasty smoothies. For an extra boost of antioxidant power, enjoy an acai bowl topped with fresh strawberries, slivered almonds, and blueberries.

9. Turmeric

Turmeric is a vibrant orange-gold spice that livens up the flavour of Asian foods such as curry. The antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic properties of this spice contribute to the glow of healthy skin.

Turmeric may decrease inflammation and redness of skin conditions including acne. Turmeric may also help to decrease puffiness and discoloration under the eyes.

10. Kefir

This fermented beverage is a probiotic, similar to yogurt, that helps maintain a healthy digestive system. The probiotic microorganisms help keep your gut populated with the good bacteria that promote good health.

In addition to the positive effect on your gut, this leads to a healthy effect on your immune system and your skin.

11. Dark Chocolate

Of course we know that fruits and vegetables are good for our bodies, including our skin. It’s always nice to hear that a treat like dark chocolate has health benefits as well.

Dark chocolate, containing 70 percent or more of cacao, is another powerful antioxidant. The phytonutrients in cocoa, called flavonoids, actually help the skin reflect UV light, preventing skin damage.

The best part is that dark chocolate should be eaten often in order to achieve this effect. Nibble on a piece of dark chocolate each day or whip up some delicious hot cocoa made with raw cacao powder to treat your taste buds and your skin.

12. Water

When choosing foods to pamper your skin, don’t forget the benefits of water. Just as a large percentage of your body is made up of water, so are your skin cells.

When your skin cells become dehydrated, your skin becomes dry, tight, and loses its elasticity. Plump up your skin cells by keeping a bottle of water on hand to sip from throughout the day.

If plain water seems too bland, add a squeeze of lemon. Boil a cup of water and add green tea leaves for a delicious way to hydrate your skin and treat it to antioxidants at the same time.

Two Canadians who were kidnapped last week have been rescued according to a police source in Kumasi.

They were reportedly rescued on Wednesday morning in a suburb of Kumasi by a police SWAT team.

It is gathered that the driver of the vehicle used for the kidnapping who is a mechanic and one other person have since been arrested and are assisting the security agencies to unravel the identity of the others.

It has been revealed that the two victims are safe. It would be recalled that two Canadians aged 19 and 20 respectively were kidnapped in the Ashanti Regional Capital of Kumasi last week.

The Ghana Police Service in a statement signed by Director of Public Affairs ACP David Klu revealed that the incident happened at Ahodwo, Kumasi Royal Golf Club, at 8.25pm on 4 June 2019.

As a result, Canadian nationals in Ghana have been alerted of violent crimes in the country including armed robbery and kidnapping and urged not to show any signs of wealth.

A tweet by the Canadian government on Thursday June 6, 2019 “#Ghana: violent crimes, including armed robbery and kidnapping, may occur. Be aware of your surroundings and avoid walking alone or displaying signs of wealth. Ensure that windows and doors in your residence are secured”

If you are considering marriage, you need to be sure that there are no signs you shouldn’t marry him in the picture. Marriage is a huge commitment and should be for a lifetime. If the guy you are considering linking your life up with has any of the signs you shouldn’t marry him as discussed here, you need to carefully consider not only not marrying them but not dating them. The things listed here are issues that will most likely cause huge problems should you decide to get married.

1. They have been unfaithful

One of the top signs you shouldn’t marry him is if he has been unfaithful to you. If someone cannot remain faithful to you throughout the time period that you are dating, it is very probable they will not remain faithful throughout a lifelong marriage. The bare minimum you should be able to expect from your husband is his faithfulness. That is not an extra benefit in a good marriage. It is expected.

2. They have an alcohol or drug problem

If you are dating a man with an alcohol or drug problem, you need to get away from him as quickly as you can. Run away from that relationship! It holds nothing but heartache from you. You cannot fix him or save him from himself. Save yourself the heartache of marrying a man with an addiction problem

3. They have a different faith with you

Marrying someone who is of a different faith than you are can bring you both so much heartache. I am not talking about little differences in denominations of the same faith. Those can usually be overcome fairly easily. But if the two of you have completely different faiths, a happy future will be difficult for you to attain. And it is much easier to choose someone from the start that shares your faith than to break it off with someone of a different faith that you already care deeply for.

4. You fight constantly

If you cannot get along when you are dating, most likely you are not going to get along when you are married. In fact, you will probably fight much more. I have often heard it said that your relationship is the best it is ever going to be when you are dating. Marriage is hard, even when you both love each other deeply and are committed to treating each other kindly. If you cannot work out your conflicts before you get married, then don’t get married at all

5. You aren’t sure if you love him

If you do not know deep down in your heart that you are deeply and totally in love with your boyfriend then you absolutely do not need to marry them. Do not enter a marriage with doubts in your head and your heart. That gut feeling is there for a reason and it is usually right. At the very least, postpone a wedding when you have doubts to give yourself time to sort your feelings out. If you do end up working through your feelings then your guy will still be there if

6. Nobody likes them

Is your boyfriend a well-liked guy? What do people usually think of him? What is the general, common opinion of him? Those are very important questions to consider. While everyone has someone that doesn’t like them, if your boyfriend is disliked by a lot of people, there is most likely a reason for that that you need to consider carefully.

The Greater Accra Passenger Transport Executive (GAPTE), managers of the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) known as Aayalolo will resume operations today, Monday, June 10, 2019.

The company has said it “will be running on a limited morning and evening peak service from Amasaman to Tudu, Ofankor to Tudu, Pokuase to Tudu and Achimota to Tudu.”

In October 2018, operations of the Aayalolo bus service came to a halt because of financial challenges and what managers then referred to as technical hitches.
After six months, there was a partial resumption of operations to Kasoa; a deviation from the Achimota to Tudu stretch, where a kilometre of that stretch was designated for their services.

At a point in 2018, over 150 Aayalolo buses had been grounded at the Achimota Bus Terminal in Accra, while another 60 deployed to Kumasi for use were yet to start operations.

GAPTE reportedly applied for a bailout from the government to help it pay for the cost of fuel, salaries and other operational costs, but the Ministry of Transport turned down the request.

Patronage of the buses was quite high when the service began in 2016, but it started dwindling six months afterwards from the expected 12,000 passengers per day to 9,000.

Patronage on a daily basis ranged between 9,000 and 10,000 on the Amasaman-Ofankor-Achimota-Accra Central Business District (CBD) corridor.

Aside the low patronage, drivers of the Aayololo buses have embarked on a series of strikes over unpaid salaries.

Popular Kumawood actor, Kwadwo Nkansah Lilwin has narrated how his former manager, Zack Gh, Top Kay and Okadie (Zacks’s manager now) extorted huge amount of money from him just to give him access to his social media handles which were being managed by Zack.

No matter what he said and pleaded, these people insisted he has to pay or he should open another social media pages to continue his work.
