4 Lessons I've Learned as an Introverted Black Girl

Photo Source: huffingtonpost.com

The thought of an after-five networking mixer exhausts me. It’s not that I don’t like meeting new people. It’s not that I’m an anti-social hermit. And it’s not that I don’t appreciate the slick ambiance, Lalah Hathaway and Ledisi singing in the background, or the myriad of saditty finger foods and drinks (no shade; I love saditty food. It’s actually my favorite type of food). It’s just that I’ve been around people at work all day. Before I douse myself with another dose of social stimulation, I need to recharge and say the word that Martin Lawrence made famous in Bad Boys: WOO-SAH.

An Open Letter to Black Women About Mental Health

Photo Source: huffingtonpost.com

I remember the first time I became aware of my own struggles with mental health. I couldn't eat, I couldn't sleep, I isolated myself from my peers and I was extremely irritable and always frustrated with the world and with my life. I was 16 years old when I came to the conclusion that I could no longer handle the life that I was given and I became suicidal. I was consumed and obsessed with the thought of ending my life, and I took the first step when I began to self-mutilate and neglect any health concerns related to my body.
Now, at the age of 25, I take a look back at my fragile 16-year-old self and ask her, "Why didn't you get help?" I see a young girl who was broken, bruised, hopeless and searching for love and belonging. I silenced my hurts and my pains and my thoughts had me enslaved. I carried on in life as if I were completely fine, completely normal; yet, the tally marks engraved on my wrist were evidence that things weren't as good as I portrayed them to be.

EC Should Stop The Crap

This is not the time for the Electoral Commission (EC) to emit negative signals about its already battered integrity.
The information making the rounds on the political terrain is that the commission deliberately waited for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to go into a vetting mode before it commenced a voter transfer exercise.
Yesterday a statement from the NPP did not take kindly to the decision to organize the voter transfer exercise and asked that it be ceased since the political parties were not duly informed.
With Kwadwo Afari-Gyan on his terminal leave never to return to the office again, it is amazing that such inappropriate and eyebrow raising manouvres would be undertaken by a commission whose performance attracted queries at the hands of both the electorate and the Supreme Court.

The Ghana/Côte d’Ivoire Maritime Boundary Dispute: A Geo-Political Analysis

Photo Source: modernghana.com

“Beware the ides of March” was what the soothsayer bid Caeser in Julius Caeser, in Act 1, scene 2, 15-19. The importance of the ides of March for Caesar is that it is the day he will be assassinated by a group of conspirators, including Brutus and Cassius.
The parallel in here lies in a 2013 published article entitled “President Outtara poohs poohs while President Mahama engages” in which the author warned about the silent diplomatic subtleties going on regarding our Oil Fields from the Ivorian quarters (Featured article of Saturday, 14 December 2013). The author had warned by then that, “If not done yet, Ghana Government must mount as a matter of urgency a crack think tank on energy, put together the energy experts and legal brains as well as international experts and consultants on the subject matter”

Pass On The Knowledge

Photo Source: ModernGhana.com

Throughout my tenure in college most of the handouts handed to me quotes and phrases from Socrates, Roosevelt and the like. I just peeped through a list of political scientists in Wikipedia and I see no Ghanaians. So, Dr. A. A. and Professor B. B.? When will we see your writings, research videos and pictures in Wikipedia? Help your students quote your statements and phrases during exams. Help me too... to quote you in my next article.
I am happy when I see the books during my senior High School tenure such as Aki Ola series and ‘a touch of class’ in senior high by Naa Afarley Sackeyfio. The connection is deep since it is a blood author whose experiences transcribe to our understanding. Do you find it difficult or you don’t have time? Pass the knowledge, Professor, for 
knowledge is only best when shared, only if you are looking for a better and powerful generation.

Edwinology’s Lab: You have to be ‘crazy’ to be a Black Stars supporter

Photo Source: MyJoyOnline.com

The Black Stars are gonna go up against Guinea next week in their third African Nations Cup qualifying match.
Go Black Stars go!!!
Don’t mind what happened in Brazil. We have heard enough of it. We understand you now. The Government didn’t release your money early enough. They broke their promises - bad enough.
And as for that John Boye’s own goal, we heard you guys just couldn’t concentrate on the game because you had $100,000 in your backpacks locked up in the dressing rooms.
Come on, that’s surely, surely understandable. See some of our politicians here can’t concentrate long enough to sign a contract if you slap $10,000 on their office desk so it’s fine. Really- it’s okay.
No hard feelings. And, and, and well, we have forgiven you for all the wrongs you did. We now know the whole story.
So when exactly is the Guinea game? How much is the ticket to watch your next game? And who is gonna be in the first 11 against Guinea.

Emma Watson gives feminism new life

Photo Source: CNN.com

 Gayle Tzemach Lemmon is a fellow and deputy director of the Women and Foreign Policy Program at the Council on Foreign Relations. She wrote "The Dressmaker of Khair Khana," a book that tells the story of an Afghan girl whose business created jobs and hope during the Taliban years. The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of the author.
 Emma Watson lent her name and her glittery profile to the cause of feminism at the United Nations, and in the process got places that rarely cover this eight-letter "f" word to pay attention.

Prevention Is The Only Answer To Ebola

Photo Source: ModernGhana.com

The situation in Liberia and Sierra Leone, as regards Ebola, is dire. Groups of extremely brave and humane individuals are doing their best to bring the disease under control. But they are overwhelmed by the sheer numbers of people who are infected on a daily basis, and the lack of safe, hospital facilities with which to nurse them back to recovery. The worst part of it all is that many of the brave, dedicated people fighting against the disease are themselves being killed by it.

#Occupyflagstaff house: The revolution is on

I have a confession to make. Two confessions actually.
The first one has to do my dormant blog. A little over a year ago I tried to explain away my failure to keep the blog active by claiming that I was too busy with school work and that I couldn’t make time to write for the blog. That wasn’t the whole truth. Just a part of it.
