Ghanaian born, raised and now a full blown TV personality Edem Fairre, a host with TMGTV in an interview with Georgebritton.com’s Kwesi Omega disclosed how time and chance took her from the stone quarry to the screens.

The young and budding model plus TV personality recounted how difficult it was for her as a young lady after her parents’ pattered ways and she had to fend for herself and her younger siblings. This ended her up at a stone quarry amidst difficult times in school, which was coupled with bad experiences suffered from people she had met earlier on who promised hope but delivered nothing close. The grateful Edem through it all kept hope alive even with no hopes of how the offing will turn out to be.

Edem who got her first modeling gig as the face of Donthes media after a passport picture she took for personal use in 2010 which got the photographer blown away by her photogenic self also was the face of Beige capital customer service. From then till now, her courteous self-have graced many modeling stages. The model has also bagged some juicy deals; she was named the 2017 Woodin Textiles Connexion de Woodin and 2018 Voile de Woodin brand ambassador but in all this, little did Edem know she was going to end up on TV.

The then model who was at the time helping a friend out on the flank with event update on Top TV got called up by fashion GH to host their red carpet. She fell in love with the screens and just like a bait, Edem was thrown into the deep oceans of presenting with little training and no experience. Edem couldn’t help it but to sneer as she spoke about how she had to learn on the job, polish her skill and craft which has earned her a spot with VIENNTYS TV AND TMGTV.

VIENNTYS and TMGTV’s finest is currently doubling as the co-founder of Empire GH modeling management and holds an ABE level 6 certificate in Marketing management as she is beaming with the hope to soon further her education.

Amidst the trail, tear, misrepresentation and fake people, which has led to her breaking down on several occasions and had even contemplated suicide in 2018, Edem is still in high spirits. The gratifying Edem couldn’t say much, but be thankful to God, her family and friends who have been super supportive to her cause as she readies for another marathon of yet a busy year ahead for modeling and presenting which promises to be a bliss.

Jupiter’s Marble Image Released

Published

on

Jupiter, the “king” of planets in our solar system, is a hostile place you definitely wouldn’t want to visit. The gas giant is a swirling mass of storms that stretch hundreds of miles deep, and the larger storms on the planet like the Great Red Spot are large enough to swallow Earth several times over.

Despite its volatile nature, and the fact that nobody really knows what lies deep within the planet, Jupiter is still one of NASA’s favorite photography targets because it’s just so beautiful. Now, NASA is showing off a new, enhanced image snapped by the Juno spacecraft, and it’s pure eye candy.

The image might look like a single photo but, as NASA explains in a new blog post, it’s actually the result of three separate snapshots captured by Juno:

Juno took the three images used to produce this color-enhanced view on Feb. 12, 2019, between 9:59 a.m. PST (12:59 p.m. EST) and 10:39 a.m. PST (1:39 p.m. EST), as the spacecraft performed its 17th science pass of Jupiter. At the time the images were taken, the spacecraft was between 16,700 miles (26,900 kilometers) and 59,300 miles (95,400 kilometers) above Jupiter’s cloud tops, above a southern latitude spanning from about 40 to 74 degrees.

NASA uploads all of Juno’s “JunoCam” images to a web portal where citizen scientists can apply enhancements that bring out additional detail. In this case, a citizen scientist named Kevin M. Gill spent some time sprucing things up and the end result is the lovely view you see above (full resolution here).

Juno has proven invaluable to NASA during its over seven years orbiting Jupiter. The spacecraft has taught scientists about the planet’s intense currents and storms, and revealed that some of the planet’s most iconic features, like the Great Red Spot, are gradually dying.

Juno’s original mission timeline lasted seven years, but because the spacecraft was still performing well, NASA has since extended it until mid-2021.

Female Dragonflies Fake Sudden Death To Avoid Male Advances.

Published

on

In order to avoid males of the species bothering them for sex, female dragonflies fake their own deaths, falling from the sky and lying motionless on the ground until the suitor goes away.

A study by Rassim Khelifa, a zoologist from the University of Zurich is the first time scientists have seen odonates feign death as a tactic to avoid mating, and a rare instance of animals faking their own deaths for this purpose. Odonates is the order of carnivorous insects that includes dragonflies and damselflies.

Khelifa had been collecting the eggs of odonates in the Swiss Alps for experiments into how temperature affects larvae. But over the two summers he spent there, he noticed unusual behavior among female dragonflies of the species Aeshna juncea .

In a study published in the journal Ecology, he wrote that on July 5, 2015 “while I was waiting at a pond near Arosa, at about 2,000 meter elevation, I witnessed a dragonfly dive to the ground while being pursued by another dragonfly… the individual that crashed was a female, and that she was lying motionless and upside down on the ground.

“Upside down is an atypical posture for a dragonfly. The male hovered above the female for a couple seconds and then left. I expected that the female could be unconscious or even dead after her crash landing, but she surprised me by flying away quickly as I approached. The question arose: Did she just trick that male? Did she fake death to avoid male harassment? If so, this would be the first record of sexual death feigning in odonates.”

Khelifa notes there are few instances of animals faking their own deaths, with four others known to science. These include two species of robber fly, the European mantis and the spider speciesPisaura mirabilis, where the males fake death in order to avoid being killed after mating. One study describes the females of another species of dragonfly lying motionless—but researchers did not suggest it was faking death.

Over the next few months, Khelifa documented dozens of cases where females would crash land and play dead while being pursued by a male. He also looked at the reproductive behaviour of A. juncea to try to work out why females would do this.

His observations showed females would arrive at the ponds where the males were waiting to mate. Males would intercept females mid-air before copulating somewhere nearby. The male then flew away and the female laid eggs on her own, without any protection—unlike many other dragonfly species, where the male will guard the female.

“Females became vulnerable to male coercion at that time because conspecific males were constantly patrolling each corner of the pond looking for a mate,” Khelifa writes.

Further observations showed that the more male competition there was, the more likely female dragonflies were to fake their own deaths. In 86 percent of cases, females would crash to the ground. Those that kept flying “were all intercepted by a male.” “Of the 27 motionless females, 21 (77.7 percent) were successful in deceiving the coercive male,” he adds.

Khelifa suggested this behavior is common among the female of this dragonfly species, and that it could have evolved for a number of reasons: “On one hand, this behavior could have resulted from exaptation. Since death feigning already exists in the behavioral repertoire of dragonflies, females of the moorland hawker expanded the use of this anti-predatory function to avoid male coercion,” he wrote. “On the other hand, the origin of this exaptation is probably sexual conflict where each sex adopts reproductive strategies that best serve its own survival and reproductive success.”

Former President Jerry John Rawlings has commended President of Burkina Faso, Roch Marc Christian Kabore for supporting the quest to create a lasting memorial park for late Burkinabe leader, Captain Thomas Sankara.

According to the former Ghanaian leader, Burkinabe should keep reminding themselves that noble people have died for their country, not only in the fight for independence but also in the fight for true freedom and justice.

The ceremony was addressed by President Kabore and other leading members of the Sankara Memorial Committee and attended by families of the late Sankara and the twelve who fell with him in October 1987.

Former President Rawlings who arrived in Burkina Faso on Thursday, February 28 earlier held meetings with the Sankara family and also chaired meetings with the Sankara Memorial Committee. On Friday he addressed a symposium where the main design of the Sankara memorial monument was unveiled.

After the unveiling of the statue on Saturday, the former President later took part in the closing ceremony of the 50th edition of the Pan African Film and Television Festival of Ouagadougou (FESPACO). Leading figures at the event included the Burkinabe President, Malian President, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and Paul Kagame, President of Rwanda.

The former President also called on the people of Burkina Faso not to allow the pain of the tragic circumstances that led to the demise of Thomas Sankara and some of his compatriots to be lost on the country.

The former President was equally grateful to the families of President Sankara and his colleagues for their presence at the ceremony.

Ghana was the first country, where the British established oil plantations followed by Malaysia in the nineteenth century. The story goes that Mr Alexander Cecil Goff established the first oil palm plantation near the coast of Ghana in the early 1900’s. The Malaysians came to Ghana to learn about oil palm plantation cultivation, the production techniques and also took away seeds. Today Malaysia is the second largest exporter of palm oil and accounts for 39 % of world palm oil production accounting for over 10 billion USD of Malaysia’s gross national income.

Founder of Ebenezer Mission Academy, Apostle Patience Evelyn Sabuki reiterated that, in preparation towards Ghana's 62nd Independence Day Anniversary and the grace and love of God on the nation Ghana, there is a need to showcase their appreciation to God through their African and Traditional prints.

Apostle Patience Sabuki appreciated New Patriotic Party administration led by, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo effort in initiating the Free Senior High School policy, however, she made a plea to government allocate excess mechanisms to make the education sector more comfortable for students, to alleviate the level of illiteracy in the country.

In advocating for the construction of footbridges, pedestrian crossing, street lights and road markings, the Minister of God urged the government to fix the deplorable state of the roads, fix the footbridges and also provide road safety security to ease the stress students have in crossing the road to attain knowledge in schools.
