Published

on

Christened at birth as Felicia Akosua Tawiah, Feli Nuna now as she is widely known has over the period weaved her way into the hearts of music lovers as the only Daavi who doubles up as a Diva but keeps it covered as best as she can.

Nudity has become the easiest way to push a female act onto the scene and we have seen how the exploration of such has dashed the careers of very promising female arts in the industry.

On the topic, Georgebritton.com identifies Feli Nuna as one of the few who has been able to keep it covered and still pottery her act and sell her craft, we picked her thoughts on the subject matter and she had some interesting things to say.

She said, “I believe people should be themselves and not to allow pressures to change them, if you are someone who does not feel comfortable wearing short things be you, s*x sells, but it will sell you in a bad way, don’t, don’t do that with the thinking that you will get more attention, traction or mileage.”

She gave a dose of advice to female artists and up and Coming’s saying, “ Be yourself, be free, but don’t fall for the pressure to do the wrong things, think about the people you inspire and reach out to with your works”

She continued with the advice, “If you are a young girl, don’t follow blindly, do things that you will be proud of in some years to come”

She rounded up with an advice for the music consumers, “Let’s focus more on the art, their work, the music and the message than what this person or that person is wearing. If we do this it will go a long way to help people desist from indecent exposure and this will help the industry as a whole and not only the female artist.”

Below is an audio visual of her new project “Dream”, do enjoy.

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.

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.

Ghana was the first country south of the Sahara to gain independence from British colonial rule and it was very significant in terms of the overall independence of Africa. As the great Dr Kwame Nkrumah proclaimed at exactly 12:00AM on 6 March 1957 at Independence Square: “ We have won the battle and again rededicate ourselves.

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. Ghana on the other hand saw a total collapsed of the palm oil industry.

Speaking to www.georgebritton.com’s Journalist Gerrard-Israel, the Assistant Headmaster of Ebenezer Mission Academy Mss.

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.

ABLE Initiative Donates To 1964 Independence Day Celebrations Bomb Victim, Elizabeth Asantewaa.

Published

on

Ghana witnessed a tragedy on 6th March, 1964 when a bomb exploded at the Accra Sports Stadium during an Independence Day Celebration. An innocent minor, Elizabeth Asantewaa, while she was presenting a bouquet of flowers to the President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah, was the unfortunate victim when it blew her up instead of the target, the President of Ghana. She has since been through countless episodes of treatments, the most prominent being her trip to London for a surgery which was sponsored by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah after he took keen interest in her case, thereby making it a point to take care of her and handle all expenses. Unfortunately, he could not do so after he was overthrown in 1966, and later passed on to glory. Fifty-three years on, after the demise of Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Ms. Elizabeth Asantewaa’s health has deteriorated as she has been neglected by subsequent governments.

Mr. Samuel Awunor, the founder of ABLE Initiative, a Non-Governmental Organization that seeks to aid and support Persons living With Disabilities, chanced upon Ms. Asantewaa’s story and considered it an obligation to make her a priority for the Initiative. On 3rd March, 2019, he, together with Mr. Nathaniel Mensah, known in showbiz circles as ‘Ajeezay’, and other members of ABLE Initiative paid a visit to Elizabeth Asantewaa at her Dansoman Residence to interact with and present certain items to her.

Her predicament, indeed, is one to make mention of. As a victim of circumstance and with no one to readily come to her aid, she considers herself neglected and abandoned by the Government of Ghana. Due to her amputated limb and the other barely able to maintain her weight, she is unable to move and thus restricted to her porch. In our bid to assure her of our loyal support to her, she expressed bitterly how other private bodies have trooped in and out of her residence and assured her of same but have unfortunately failed to carry out their promises. It is our utmost desire, at ABLE Initiative, that Ms. Asantewaa is provided at least, with such basic necessities of life as a comfortable place to lay her head since she is confined to her mat day in and out as a result of her inability to walk. “They say material things are vanity, but sometimes they are necessary” she opined. All she needs now is some constant care and a consistent source of livelihood. A renewal of her hope in Ghana is worth considering, nevertheless, since her love for her country led her to this state. We therefore plead with all to provide any form of assistance to Elizabeth Asantewaa, be it cash or kind. Your kindness will go a long way to put a smile on her face and revive her hope in humanity.
Do reach out to her through the following medium;
