She posted these photos on her Instagram page and wrote:
“It’s easier for people like me to wear tank tops, sleeveless tops, above-knee skirts(because I don’t have fat arms, or stretch marks); but, I have realised, not everyone is this confident.
Some can’t because they don’t like their bodies, others are scared of what people will say. (P.s: please work on your body, if you really want a change) but in the mean time, LOVE your body. Embrace your body. That’s all you’ve got.
Today, I applaud bodies that have carried humans and are not as they used to.
I applaud bodies that are undergoing some panel beating. I applaud me, for going out of my comfort zone to agree to doing this.
As I prepare to learn to swim (don’t postpone things oh, old age na wa), I love my body now, and will do even later. I feel very beautiful, because I am. So should you..#EmbraceYourBody. See more photo below;
Many of us will reach after a glass of cold water right after we are done eating. But is this habit good for your organism and overall health?
Remember what happens when you pour cold water over a pan in which you have just been frying something? Unfortunately, the same happens to your digestive system as well.
Cold water has the ability to harden food’s fats once they are in the stomach. This way you will end up with solid mass in your stomach. This mass is very hard to digest. However, when this hard mass comes into contact with stomach’s acids, it is crushed and thus absorbed in the intestines. The worst part is that the hardened mass will be absorbed before the solid food.
All this can lead to cancer occurrence due to impaired function of the whole digestive system.
So, avoid drinking cold water right after you are done eating. Instead, drink lukewarm water, tea or warm soup.
The importance of making love regularly is often underestimated. Nonetheless, there are 8 good reasons why you should not disregard the sex life. This is what happens to the body when stop having sex:
1. You get sick more often
If you don’t have making love for a long time, your immune system becomes significantly weaker. Germs then have an easier job of spreading in your body and you can contract a bug or get this season’s flu virus more easily. So, have more sex to be more healthy.
2. The stress levels increase
Regular intercourse is an effective way to decrease your stress levels. The amount of stress hormones reduces during regular intercourse and makes you feel more relaxed in everyday life. Without this important balance, you could become a ticking time bomb.
3. It’s harder for getting aroused
It’s hard to believe, but true: If individuals don’t regularly “have sex, it’s difficult to become aroused. Men can experience problems having erections while for women are difficult to have an orgasm. So, you have to stay on top of things to make sure the “switch” always remains on.
4. Your dreams change
Some individuals suddenly notice that they have strange dreams when their sex life is suffering. It can mean that you unexpectedly start dreaming about sex or have orgasms in your sleep.
5. You lose the desire to have sex
If your body notices that you’re having a prolonged dry spell in the sexual sense, the production of sex hormones decreases. You do not like to have sex because you have been abstinent for a while. Additionally, your libido will feel different and this is due to the fact that sex hormones are slowly vanishing.
6. You’ll feel more distance between your partner and yourself
When the partners rarely sleep together, their interpersonal distance becomes really huge. There is possibility to start having some feelings of uncertainty related to your partner and other people may seem more attractive to you.
7. It lowers the feeling of self-worth
It is not surprising that a person’s self-worth is harmed, if that individual does not regularly feel desired. But a lack of sex has been proven to affect a person’s well-being, leading to sadness or depression when sex is absent from their lives. Studies have proved that regular sex helps in fight against depression. It can sometimes even work as well as antidepressants.
8. Your risk of cancer increases
The risk of prostate cancer increases for men when they don’t have sex for a longer period of time. So it’s not a bad idea for men to “flus h out” the pipes. Because then the risk is significantly decreased.
Well, if all this isn’t motivation enough, then I don’t know what is! For all these reasons, it would be almost irresponsible not to make love more regularly, don’t you think?

Edith Steiner will be celebrating her 71st valentine with the Scottish soldier who helped save her in World War II.
Mail UK reports that John Mackay, 96, was in the ranks of a commando team that liberated a number of Jewish prisoners from their Nazi guards in Poland.
Their love story began when 23-year-old John got love struck when he saw 20-year-old Edith Steiner at a village hall dance to celebrate their liberation, but he was too shy to approach her.
He sent a friend to ask her if she will dance with him, but she refused, saying she will only do so if he came himself. That was the first page of their love story as they got married in July 17, 1946, and have two children, seven grand-children and five great-grand children.
They worked as hoteliers before moving to a care home in Dundee after they retired.
Mouawiya Syasneh was just 14 when he sprayed anti-government slogans on his school wall in Deraa, Syria.
It was February 2011, and he could never have imagined that such a minor act would spark a full-blown civil war.
More than half a million people have been killed in Syria since the start of the war. Mouawiya’s home city has been ravaged by street fighting, shelling and barrel bombing. The war has left scars that may never heal.
Now a young man, fighting on the frontline for the Free Syrian Army, Mouawiya admits that had he known what the consequences of his actions would be, he would never have taunted the country’s president, Bashar al-Assad.
His life has been transformed by that adolescent prank. He has lost friends and relatives, including his father. And Syria has been changed for ever.
The Boy who started the Syrian Civil War offers a glimpse into life in Deraa since the start of the conflict.
We meet Syrians trying to lead normal lives amid the chaos as well as those who have taken up arms against Assad’s forces.
FILMMAKER’S VIEW – by Emmy Award-winning producer, Jamie Doran
I was in Moscow recently, chatting to people you might have thought would have known better. Educated folk, among them an experienced journalist. I had asked them a simple question: how did the Syrian war begin?
They uniformly launched into the answer that has been peddled so often in recent times, that it has now become fact in certain circles: “It was the terrorists who started it all.”
The fact that ISIL in its current form didn’t even exist in Syria at the time, or that al-Nusra wouldn’t arrive until many months afterwards, appear to have been conveniently forgotten – not just in Moscow but in most media coverage around the world.
The surprise, even shock on their faces when I pulled out my laptop and showed them the trailer for our latest film for Al Jazeera, The Boy Who Started the Syrian War, was a wonder to behold. They simply had no idea.
They claimed they hadn’t been aware of how, for decades, dissenters towards government authority had faced the daily dread of a visit from the secret police, of torture, disappearance and extrajudicial execution.
They had apparently never heard about how fathers were frightened to allow their daughters to be alone on the streets for fear of abduction, rape and murder at the hands of the Shabiha, Assad-family militias that operated with virtual impunity.
And they were totally unaware that it was a mischievous prank by adolescent schoolchildren that lit the fuse that set a country ablaze.
Early in 2016, I was sitting in Books@Cafe, a hangout for liberally minded Jordanians on Al-Khattab Street, Amman, with cameraman and filmmaker Abo Bakr Al Haj Ali. He was busily puffing away on his narghile (hookah), as we discussed how Deraa, the city which had given birth to the revolution, had been virtually ignored by the media in recent years.
One of the reasons it had been overlooked was that the Jordanians wouldn’t let any Western journalists cross from their side. Almost the only other option was an official tour of government-controlled areas via Damascus that didn’t appeal to me at all, even if they had let me in, which was rather unlikely.
I’d spent the previous week sitting on the border, just an hour’s drive from Deraa, having established an agreement with the Jordanian military which would have made me the first Westerner allowed to cross over in three years.
There I was, in the border compound about to leave Jordanian soil, when a call came to the post. Moments later, I was very politely placed in a saloon car … and driven back to Amman. I later found out that the representative of the British intelligence agency, MI6, in Amman had advised the Jordanian government that it would be a bad idea to let me cross … even though I was travelling on an Irish passport!
So, back at Books@Cafe, Bakr and I sat chatting about how we could make a film about Deraa without my physical presence. It’s his home town. His territory.
“So, who do you know, who was there at the very beginning?” I asked.
“I know the commander, Marouf Abood, who set up the very first people’s militia, after government troops attacked his village,” he responded.
“Interesting. And who else?”
He went on to reel off half a dozen names; commander this, commander that.
“Come on, Bakr. You must know someone else, someone different. Someone fresh,” I said.
Continuing to drag deeply on the narghile, deep in thought, he told me that there was no one else that was really very interesting.
And then he added: “Well, I suppose there’s the boy who scrawled the anti-Assad graffiti on his school wall that started the war.”
It was one of those moments where you could have knocked my 90 kilos over with a feather.
The boy who started the Syrian war! Think about it. It wasn’t ISIL, nor al-Nusra, nor any other terrorist group. It was an act of defiance, a moment of youthful rebelliousness, if you like, that led to an uprising which has seen more than half a million people killed and a country torn to shreds.
It wasn’t, of course, the fault of this 14-year-old boy and his three friends who joined him in this moment of adolescent disobedience – a prank which would have enormous consequences beyond their understanding. But when they were arrested by the police and tortured in a most horrendous way, a line was crossed from which there would be no turning back.
When their parents and families arrived at the police station to plead for their freedom, they were told: “Forget these children. Go home to your wives and make some more. If you can’t manage, send us your wives and we’ll do it for you.”
Anger rose. The fuse had been lit and, when police started randomly killing marchers in the demonstrations that followed, armed resistance became an inevitability.
For me personally, this film has taken on an importance beyond many that I have made in the past. To be able to remind (and, in some cases, inform) a massive global audience of the true origins of the Syrian civil war, is an enormous privilege for a filmmaker.
For those directly involved in those origins, however, our film has provided an opportunity for reflection. So many have suffered greatly and sacrificed so much for a revolution which, by any calculation, is and will remain incomplete, no matter what the outcome of negotiations.
Mouawiya Syasneh, The boy who started the Syrian War, is now a young man who, like so many other young men in Deraa, carries a Kalashnikov rather than a satchel these days. As viewers will discover, his own family has paid a dreadful price for the events that followed his actions back in February 2011.
His own reflections are now a matter of record for the first time.
A 31-year-old woman identified as Lisa Williams, left a Valentine’s card message for her children before she was found burned to death on a beach.

According to Metro UK, police are not treating the death as suspicious.
Just hours before she went missing, Lisa posted a message on Facebook saying: ‘Everyone makes mistakes in life, but that doesn’t mean they have to pay for them the rest of their life.
‘Sometimes good people make bad choices, it doesn’t mean they are bad. It means they are human.’
One of her children children replied on Facebook writing simply: ‘Love u mam and miss u.’
It is understood Lisa had medical treatment and recently underwent a major operation, a hysterectomy for non-cancerous growth around the womb.
Neighbours said had also recently parted from her partner of nine years. It is also understood social services had been involved with the family. She was believed to be living in bed and breakfast.
One former neighbour said: ‘She’s been through hell and back for different reasons recently. Those poor kids.’
Dozens of messages from heartbroken family and friends were left on the Facebook page after news of her death broke – and offering their condolences to her children.
One wrote: ‘Your mam loved you and your brother’s and sister so much. I’m sure you all know that.’
Another said: ‘Your mam adored the bones of you all, such kind and caring woman, she’ll always be with you no matter what.’
Ms Williams’ remains were found by a security guard from Holyhead port at around 10:40pm on Sunday.
District Inspector Jason Higgins, at Llangefni Police Station, said: ‘The lady, who we believe to be local was pronounced dead at the scene. Our thoughts are with them at this very difficult time.’
Wyn Parry, Holyhead Port Operations Manager, said: ‘She was found by one of our security details. We are very sad to hear about it, and send our condolences to her family.’
