CHILDHOOD OBESITY; what can be done

CHILDHOOD OBESITY; what can be done

Obesity among children has reached epidemic proportions in many countries. The world health organization says that worldwide an estimated 22 million children under the age of five are overweight.
A national survey in Spain revealed that 1 out of every 3 children is either overweight or obese. In just ten years (1985-1995), childhood obesity tripled in Australia. In the last three decades, obesity in children aged 6 to 11 has more than tripled in the USA.
Childhood obesity is also extending to many developing countries and Nigeria is not left out. According to a taskforce, in some parts of Africa, more children are affected by obesity than by malnutrition. In 2007, Mexico occupied second place in the world, behind the United States, for childhood obesity.
What are the complications? Three are diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. These are health problems formerly considered characteristic mostly of adults. According to the U.S. institute of Medicine, 30 percent of the boys and 40 percent of the girls born in the United States in the year 2000 have a lifetime risk of being diagnosed with obesity-related type 2 diabetes. Survey shows an alarming rate trend among children. Climbing rates of obesity are leading to climbing rates of high blood pressure.
Contributing factors
What is behind this global epidemic of childhood obesity? While genetics can be a predisposing factor, the alarming increase in obesity in recent decades appears to indicate that genes are not the only cause. Commenting on the cause, the Mayo Clinic, in the United States, says: “although there are some genetic and hormonal causes of childhood obesity, most excess weight is caused by kids eating too much and exercising too little.” Two examples illustrate the changing trend in eating habits today.
First, as working parents have less time and energy to prepare meals, fast food has increasingly become the norm. Fast food restaurants have sprang up all over the world. One study reported that nearly a third of all children in the united states aged 4 to 19 eat fast food every day. Such foods are typically high in sugar and fats and are offered in tempting large sizes.
Second, soft drinks have replaced milk and water as the beverage of choice. For example, Mexicans spend more each year on soft drinks, particularly colas, than on the ten most basic foods put together.

What can parents do?
1. Buy and serve more fruits and vegetables than convenience foods

2. Limit soft drinks, sweetened beverages, and high-fat sugary snack foods. Instead, offer water or low-fat milk and healthier snacks

3. Use cooking methods that are lower in fat, such as baking, broiling, and steaming, instead of frying

4. Serve smaller portions

5. Avoid using food as a reward as a bribe

6. Do not allow children to skip breakfast. Skipping it may lead to overeating later.

7. Sit at table to eat. Eating in front of a TV or a computer screen promotes consumption and lessens awareness of feeling full.

8. Encourage physical activity, such as bike riding, playing ball, and jumping rope

9. Limit time spent on watching television, using the computer, and playing video games.

10. Plan active family outings, such as visiting the zoo, going swimming, or playing in the park.

11. Assign active chores to your children.

12. Set the example in healthful eating and exercise.

What is the solution?
Nutritionist do not recommend putting children on a restrictive diet, as this may compromise their growth and health. Rather one of the best strategies to combat excess weight in your children is to improve the diet and exercise levels of your entire family. Make healthful habits a family commitment. If you do, they will become a way of life for your children, carrying over into adulthood.



How do you prepare yourself during your pregnancy period? According to the United Nations Population Fund, each year more than a million women die of pregnancy-related causes. In addition, the United Nations children’s fund (UNICEF) notes that annually more than 60 million women suffer acute complications from pregnancy and that nearly a third of these sustain lifelong injuries or infections. In developing countries many women are trapped in a cycle of pregnancies, deliveries, and self-neglect, leaving them worn out and ill. Yes, pregnancy can be harmful-even dangerous. Is there anything a woman can do to make her pregnancy safer?
Preparation during pregnancy:
– Choose your hospital, doctor, or midwife wisely by doing advance research.
– Make regular visits to your doctor or midwife, establishing a trusting, friendly relationship.
– Give careful attention to your health. If possible, take the appropriate vitamins, but avoid medication (even over the-counter products) unless your doctor approves. It is wise to avoid alcohol. “Although the highest risk is to babies whose mothers drink heavily, it is not clear yet whether there is any completely safe level of alcohol during pregnancy.
– If you experience premature labour pains (prior to the 37th week), contact your doctor or maternity ward immediately. Prompt attention may help to prevent a premature delivery and the complications that can result.
– Document personal decisions relating to medical care. For example, many have found it helpful to have a durable power of attorney (DPA) card filled out ahead of time. Find out what is used and legally acceptable in your country.
– After the birth be mindful of your health and that of your baby, especially if the baby came prematurely. Consult the pediatrician right away if you observe any problems.
– Beware of possible environment hazards, such as over-exposure to X-rays and harmful chemicals. Limit use of sprays and other household substance. Do not become overheated because of exposure to excessive temperatures or over exercise. Avoid prolong standing and overexertion. Use proper seat belt positioning.

A successful Delivery:
A woman who takes care of herself during pregnancy will be less prone to complications upon delivery. Naturally, she will have planned whether she prefers to delivery at home or in a hospital. She will also know, to a good degree, what to expect and how to cooperate with skilled midwife or physician. This person, in turn, will know the woman’s informed preferences-where a choice is possible-on such issues as delivery position, episiotomy, and the use of forceps, analgesics, and electronic fetal monitoring. There must be agreement on other issues: to what hospital or clinic will they go if the home delivery becomes complicated? What exactly will be done in case of excess blood loss? Since hemorrhage causes many maternal deaths, blood substitute must be readily available for patients who do not accept transfusions. Also forethought should be given as to what will be done if a cesarean section is required.

“Healthier mothers have healthier babies,” says the UN chronicle. It also observes that when a woman gets inadequate medical care or none at all during pregnancy, childbirth, and the period thereafter, her baby also receives little or no medical care.
In some lands it may be difficult for a pregnant woman to get adequate care. Perhaps she has far to travel, or she may be unable to cover medical costs. Still, if at all possible, an expectant mother should try to get at least some professional prenatal care.

The following are steps to take during pregnancy. They include;

1. Choose your hospital, doctor, or midwife wisely by doing advance research.

2. Make a regular visit to your doctor or midwife, especially a trusting, friendly relationship.

3. Give careful attention to your health. If possible, take the appropriate vitamins, but avoid medication (even over the counter products) unless your doctor approves. It is wise to avoid alcohol. “although the highest risk is to babies whose mothers drink heavily, it is not clear yet whether there is any completely safe level of alcohol during pregnancy,” states the National institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.

4. If you experience premature labour pains (prior to the 37th week), contact your doctor or maternity ward immediately. Prompt attention may help prevent a premature delivery and the complications that can result.

5. Document personal decisions relating to medical care. For example, many have found it helpful to have a durable power of attorney (DPA) card filled out ahead of time. Find out what is used and legally accepted in your country.

6. after the birth be mindful of your health and that of your baby, especially if the baby came prematurely. Consult the pediatrician right away if you observe any problems.

ANTARCTICA; A Continent in Trouble.

ANTARCTICA; A Continent in Trouble.

When astronauts view the earth from space they say the continent Antarctica “radiates light like a great white lantern across the bottom of the world.” Containing some 30,000,000 cubic kilometers of ice, Antarctica is an ice-manufacturing machine of continental proportions. Snows falls on the continent and packs down to form ice. Gravity forces the ice to flow slowly towards the coast, and there slips into the sea to form massive ice shelves.
Parts of Antarctica can get so cold, says one writer, that “if you drop a steel bar it is likely to shatter like glass . . . and if you haul up a fish through a hole in the ice within five seconds it is frozen . . . solid.” Because of its extreme conditions and its surreal, naked beauty-at times complemented by breathtaking displays of the southern lights-Antarctica could pass for another world.
But Antarctica is very much a part of this world. Infact, it has been likened to a vast natural laboratory for studying the earth and its atmosphere as well as global environmental changes. It is in relation to these studies that scientists are becoming increasingly concerned. They have observed ominous new phenomena in the south Polar Regions, and these suggest that all is not well.
To begin with, Antarctica-the most isolated continent in the world-is a continent of contradictions. It is supremely beautiful and pristine but brutally inhospitable. It is the windiest, coldest place on earth, yet it is singularly delicate and sensitive. It has less precipitation than any other continent, but its ice represents 70 percent of the planet’s fresh water. With an average thickness of some 2,200 meters, the ice makes Antarctica earth’s highest continent, averaging 2,300 meters above sea level. It is also earth’s fifth-largest continent, yet Antarctica has no permanent residents larger than a one centimeter wingless midge, a type of fly.
As you venture into Antarctica’s interior, you see fewer and fewer signs of life, especially when you reach the areas called dry valleys. Covering some 3,000 square kilometers, these polar deserts are mostly set high in the transantarctic Mountains-a chain of ranges spanning the continent and rising in places to over 4,300. Mount Vinson Massif, 4,896.9 meters is the tallest mountain. Yet, even the dry valleys host life! Inside porous rocks, in tiny air pockets, live exceptionally hardy forms of bacteria, algae, and fungi. They all survive on the barest trace of moisture. Outside, their surreal world is one stark rock formations called ventifacts, whose bizarre shape and high sheen are the result of countless centuries of Antarctica’s unremitting winds.
Speculation about a giant southern landmass goes way back to the ancient Greek philosophers. Aristotle, for one, postulated the need for a southern continent to counterbalance lands known to exist in the Northern Hemisphere. The book Antarctica-Great stories From the Frozen Continent says that “as the northern hemisphere lay under the constellation of Arktos, the Bear, so, Aristotle (384-322 BC) reasoned, the unknown land to the south must be Antarktikos-in other words, the total opposite”- or the antipode. So Antarctica enjoys the distinction of being named, in effect, some 2,000 years before it was discovered!
In 1772, British explorer Captain James Cook sailed south in search of this postulated southern continent. He entered a world of windswept island and huge icebergs, or “ice island” as he called them. Determined, Cook continued south, and on January 17, 1773, his ship, the resolution, and its companion, the adventure, were the first vessels known to cross the Antarctic Circle. Cook doggedly navigated his way through the pack ice until eventually he was blocked. “I could se nothing to the southward but ice,” he wrote in his log. He was infact, just 120 kilometers from Antarctica soil when he turns back.
Cook “stumbled upon what was probably the largest congregation of wildlife that existed in the world, and he was the first man to let the world know of its existence. Nowadays, however, international laws protect all Antarctica flora and fauna. Additionally, an absence of land predators combined with a bountifully marine food supply make the Antarctica coast a summer haven for wildlife. But Antarctica shows signs of a more insidious assault, one that may be beyond the reach of international agreements.
Who Rules Antarctica?
Although seven countries claim portions of Antarctica, the continent as a whole has the unique distinction of having neither a sovereign nor citizenry. “Antarctica is the only continent on earth to be completely governed by an international agreement,” reports the Australian Antarctic Division.
Called the Antarctic Treaty, the agreement was signed by 12 governments and entered into force on June 23, 1961. Since then, the number of participating nations has grown to over 40. The treaty’s objective is “to ensure, in the interest of all mankind, that Antarctica shall continue forever to be used exclusively for peaceful purposes and shall not become the scene or object of international discord.”
In January 1998 the environmental protection protocol to the Antarctic treaty came into force. This protocol bans all mining and mineral exploitation in Antarctica for a minimum of 50 years. It also designates the continent and its dependent marine ecosystem as a “natural reserve devoted to peace and science.” Military activities, weapon testing, and the disposal of nuclear wastes are prohibited. Even sled dogged are banned.
In the meantime, high above Antarctica a hole twice the size of Europe has formed in the atmosphere’s ozone layer. Ozone, a form of oxygen, shields the earth from harmful ultraviolet radiation that damages eyes and causes skin cancers. Because of the increase in radiation, researchers in Antarctica must protect their skin from the sun and don goggles or sunglasses with special reflective coatings to protect their eyes. Only time will tell to what extent Antarctica seasonal wildlife is affected.



Making money online is a goal that many people share but only a
small percentage achieve. It’s certainly not an easy task when
you’re just starting out. It requires a certain degree of knowledge
and determination to succeed.

There are a number of skills which you’ll need to learn if you want
to be really successful. And by that I mean making enough money to
replace your current income. If you’re not too ambitious and you
just want to supplement your existing wage with a little bit of
extra money, it shouldn’t be too difficult. There are easy ways to
do this and you can always scale up your efforts to increase your
income if things go according to plan.

But first you need to understand the basic methods of how to make
money using the internet. Below is a list of ways that are the most
common and established ways to make money online.

In no order of preference these are…

1. Affiliate marketing – a method used to promote other people’s
products and services from which you can make a commission when
your marketing efforts lead to a sale or a sales lead. Making money
as an online affiliate can be as simple as placing a link on a
website that contains your affiliate code. But more likely it will
involve you recommending a product or service, either through a
written article or some form of advice that people will find useful.

2. Google AdSense – this method will enable you to earn money from
sponsored adverts. It’s a method that requires you to have a
website or blog with a regular flow of visitors, and provides
useful information on a specific subject. Certain topics will
provide better conversion rates than others so it pays to do some
research first. To learn more about how Google AdSense works study
the related articles in the column to your right.

3. Email marketing – email marketing is a method that requires a
lot of groundwork to be successful. It can be very powerful in
generating sales under the right circumstances. But it’s also
fraught with risks if not used correctly.

4. Online Network marketing – if you like dealing with people and
prefer the idea of building a business slowly that can provide a
long term income, network marketing might just be your thing.
Choosing the right business to deal with is essential though.

5. Membership sites – the profit potential from setting up and
running a membership site can be enormous. But this will largely
depend on what type of specialised information you can provide

6. Digital product sales – this is where experienced internet
marketing experts can really make a killing. Many have gone on to
reach millionaire status simply by creating their own digital
products and selling them through their own email lists. Or
partnering with other successful marketers with large lists of
potential buyers. They also use affiliates to promote and sell
their products for them which can be a very profitable experience
for both parties involved, especially for the product creator.

7. eCommerce website – a large percentage of business online is
conducted through ecommerce websites. If you’re serious about
building a solid business with real potential growth, establishing
a notable brand and setting up an ecommerce site selling products
that people are wanting to buy, can go a long way to building a
very successful business. A business that could possibly be sold
for a very tidy sum once it’s well established.

8. ebay selling – selling goods on ebay is something that anyone
with an ebay account can use to make some money. You may not
necessarily make much of a profit, but it’s a surefire way to
pocket some money if your items sell. But ebay gives you the
opportunity to do more than just sell a few unwanted things lying
around the house. If you want to learn how to make money on the
internet in other ways, selling on ebay can help you learn and
develop a few of the essential skills you’ll need to become a good
internet marketer.

Anyone who can learn the basic skills required to create an income
using one or more of the methods outlined above will soon be able
to take full advantage of the opportunities that exist to make
money online.



When occasional insomnia occurs, it is best one follows some practical steps to help overcome such habits. However there are things you must do or avoid to help you sleep well. What about occasional insomnia? Some of these practical steps will help:

1. Avoid alcohol as well as stimulants such as tea or coffee near bedtime.
Many people mistakenly believe that alcoholic beverages will help put them to bed. However, clinical studies show that alcohol can have rebound effect and keep you awake.
2. Quit smoking.
One authority notes; “smokers have greater difficulty falling asleep, because cigarettes raise blood pressure, speed up heart rate, and stimulate brain-wave activity. Smokers also tend to wake up more in the middle of the night, possibly because their body is experiencing withdrawal symptoms”.
3. Avoid extreme mental or physical stimulation just before bedtime.
Exercise promotes proper rest but not if done immediately before trying to sleep. Tackling big problems or mental challenges just before you go to bed can interfere with the relaxed mood often needed to drift off to sleep.
4. Make sure that your bed-room is quiet, dark and where possible, relatively cool.
Regarding noise, considered one famous study of people living near an airport who claimed that they no longer heard the airplanes. When their sleep patterns are tested, their brain waves recorded each landing and take off! The researchers concluded that the test subjects averaged about one hour less of quality sleep each night than those in a quieter zone. Earplugs or other devices of reducing noise would have greatly assisted them in getting restful sleep. Some find that white noise (defined as any low-frequency, steady, and monotonous hum), such as made by an electric fan, is especially helpful if there is a need to mask street sounds.
5. Be cautious about taking sleep-inducing medications.
There is growing evidence that many drugs prescribed to induced sleep are habit-forming, lessen in effectiveness with prolonged use, and have damaging side effects. At best, such drugs may be useful for short term therapy.
Since insomnia can be brought on by stress, it is thought that one key to healthy sleep is making the time the time just before to bed a quiet, pleasant period. It may be helpful to set aside the cares of the day and to do something enjoyable, such as reading. So when next you want to avoid occasional insomnia, why not try the above practical steps.

The federal high court, Abuja division, yesterday issued a bench warrant for the arrest of two embattled officials of the pension office, Mr. Aliyu Bello and Abdullah Omeiva, following their alleged complicity in a 12 billion naira pension scam.
Justice Adamu bello issued the warrant for Bello and Omeiva after counsel to the economic and financial crimes commission (EFCC), Godwin Obla, had informed him that the arraignment of 33 persons allegedly involved in the pension scam could not proceed oweing to the absence of the 3rd and 7th accused persons (Bello and Omeiva).
Obla said the duo, who were granted administrative bail by EFCC after due interrogation several weeks ago and were served notice to appear in court for their arraignment, did not send words to the agency or the court to explain their absence.
He said that the accused persons were served with the charged on march 23 and April 4, 2011.
Accordingly, Obla made an oral application as provided for in section 351 of the criminal procedure act, praying the court to issue a bench warrant to compel their appearance so that trial could commence on a latter date.
The judge acceded to the request for bench warrant against the 3rd and 7th accused persons and consequently ordered the inspector general of police to produce them on May 7, 2011, for their plea to be taken.
The duo are among the 33 accused persons to be tried by EFCC on a 136 – count charge of corruption, abuse of office and theft. The accused include a former director of the pension and Peoples Democratic Party governorship aspirant in kogi state, Dr. S.T. Shuaibu, his former deputy, Mrs. Phiana chidi and his personal assistant, Aliu Bello.
Others include officials and those allegedly served conduit-pipes for the siphoning of the said sums from the system.
EFCC had reportedly claimed that earlier investigation into the alleged pension scam led to the discovery of a secret personal bank account containing 1.5 billion naira, believed to have been diverted from the scheme. The discovery brought to 12 billion naira the money allegedly stolen from the scheme and said to have been lodged in three secret accounts by shuaibu, chidi and Bello.
One becomes so perplexed when all that can be seen from our own democracy is pains, greed, and corruption. Nigeria has continue to behave as if it is not part of the modern world but as a place where you can do anything to become anything. Once you have money by any means, you can buy everything including life and heaven will fall. What other societies will consider a crime is always the norm in Nigeria. We don’t care whether others are watching us. This is a society where a single person will park more than 20 cars in his compound and having houses in all major cities of the world and still be looking to acquire more as if he has 10 lives to live, as if he can sleep in two rooms at the same time and as if he can ride in two different cars at the same time. This kind of behavour has been the bane of our present democracy, political system and our society. Corruption still strives in Nigeria.

valentine uwakwe, Born like a Baby!

Many blogg and article readers must have held there breath high when post and articles bearing valentine uwakwe starts appearing on many eye catching sites like ezinearticles, go articles, factoids, etc. one begins to wonder who is this guy?
This is my story………………
My name is valentine chidozie uwakwe, male citizen of the federal republic of Nigeria. Am 27 years old and hails from the Igbo speaking part of Nigeria called imo state. My local council area is ezinihitte village is chukwuoma-okpofe. Am the first of five children. My parents are civil servants. I did not attend any pre school or kindergarten, so my friends become so surprise how I become so vast in information and knowledge. By January 4th 1988 I started my primary education at OREMEJI PRIMARY SCHOOL, tolu complex, olodi apapa, Lagos. An estate area presumes to be the largest land area in Africa that houses up to 21 secondary schools and 6 primary schools.
I graduated from the primary school to the secondary school which is known as OJOKU GRAMMAR SCHOOL, in the same tolu schools complex area. There I did my first West African examination council examination in 1998.i would not forget I graduated from school on July 1st 1998.
I resit for the exams again in 1999 at UNITY SECONDARY SCHOOL and made my papers before proceeding to the University of Portharcourt, in far away Rivers state to study Geography & Environmental Management. I would cease also to mention some of my few failures in writing examination at my junior levels that I have come to believe in the adage that ‘Examination knew no cleverness”. I wrote two general certificate examinations (GCE), yet to no avail.
Back in my school days at the secondary level, I was good in six core subjects of Geography, English language, Biology, History, Government & Technical drawings. Funny enough, I was a science student intending to study medicine at the college but things didn’t turn out my way. With this core subjects firmly in my hands I held the big guns and become undisputed in A grades in these areas.
I enter the university with that ego and went on to graduated among the top five students at the department level and top 30th on the faculty of social sciences ratings. I was ever popular in school that the nickname of VAL202 took over my name.
I graduated from the university in 2008 and went for my mandatory Nigerian youth scheme of NYSC in2009. I was posted to serve in the north east state of Adamawa. I was assigned the head of Art departments of Gaanda secondary school, Gaanda, LALA division of Gombi L.G.A of the state where I taught Geography, English language and Biology was later at the end of the service year in the LALA area the best serving corp. member, though I dislike the area I was posted to serve my fatherland, cos it could be said to be ten years back of our present day civilization!
