If I was a Gardener, I would say this platform is as sweet as honeysuckle, if I was a Month enthusiast, I would say it is as sweet as the lilies in May, if I was a musician, I would say it is as sweet as spring's first song heard in the grove's retreat, well, maybe I should incarnate Edwin Arnold and say, Afritalks is as sweet as the last smile of sunset.

What is a pedigree dog?
A pedigree dog is the offspring(puppies) of two dogs of the same breed, which is eligible for registration with a recognized club such as AKC, FCI etc.
Does having a pedigree dog means I'm getting a good pup from responsible breeder?
Buying a registered dog guarantee nothing about the dog's health nor the responsibility of the breeder. Most countries now have another group or association called the Assures Breeders Scheme, for which membership is based on breeders meeting a set of criteria that the Kennel club demands to be an indicator of responsible breeding.

Before buying a puppy, pedigree or otherwise, it’s Very important to do your research first.
*finding out where and how the puppy was bred
*making sure you see a puppy with its mother in the place where it was bred
*ask about previous buyer and if you could contact and ask questions

Be A Great Listener
Ask anybody what the most coveted quality in a best friend or significant other is, and they will most likely "listening skills". This is because we feel important when someone listens to us attentively. Talking also releases stress and emotions, meaning the person chatting away feels relieved and even enlightened following the conversation. Do this for the people in your life, particularly to new people you meet. You will be instantly likeable and sought after.
Always Be Yourself
No matter how desperately you want to include more people in your personal circle, or how delighted you'd...
A pet is widely recognized as an ideal addition to the household. Pets provide positive physical and mental benefits to their owners, including decreasing blood pressure and depression. Additional benefit is the fact that they provide comfort and fun to any family they are a part of. Not every pet is right for every human though, but some animals consistently rank at the top of the popularity list.
However, out of the numerous lovely animals out there that are suitable as pets, we all have our preferences. If you had a chance to pick a pet out of these five, which would it be? Is it the dog that is termed worldwide as "man's best friend" or the cats with their calm nature and pretty eyes or a parrot who you can never be bored with or the thick fluffy rabbit that is also very friendly or a little fish that is quite compact and not that difficult to keep?

A dull burning sensation was building up somewhere deep inside Adriana. She tried to fight the thirst, but she knew that it would be of no use. The thirst will eventually grow to a maddening point. Still, she tried to concentrate on her sleep. But sleep was long gone. Adriana was becoming restless. This maddening thirst always brought memories from the past, some of which reminded her of the carefree days when she was just like another normal girl. But not all memories are good. Along with sweet ones, bitter ones also came along which brutally reminded her every time what a monster she had become.
Even after decades, Adriana remembered everything, every single detail, every single word spoken on that fateful night. There was an upheaval. But she didn’t know what it meant. Many times Adriana had heard her father talking about the Civil War. For her it simply meant that she couldn’t visit her friends after sunset. But nobody knew that there was a greater danger ready to pounce on...
My friend invited me to his church for a thanksgiving service, and I sat at the front row.
When it was time for offering, the offering basket was passed around. Despite the Pastor's charge for good offering, I still hurriedly and secretly pulled out N20 from my pocket and dropped it. Just then, the person behind me tapped me on the shoulder and handed me a N1,000 note. I smiled, so generous. Then majestically, I looked around and put the N1,000 in the basket and passed it on. Then I turned and thanked the man seriously for being so generous. He replied "don't mention'' be more careful next time, it fell from your pocket" Whaaaat!!!!!???????......." "Usher please wait, wrong transaction!!!!!!!!!."
If you are in my shoe, what will you do?
Have you been told you are ‘pre-diabetic’ by your doctor? Have they advised you to lose weight, exercise more often, and even proposed some new ideas for food? So, are you prepared yet to change your entire lifestyle to halt what might be, or might not be your fate? This is how thousandsof Nigerians feel every day when they meet with their doctor and are given this news. So how do you deal with it?
Food is used as a comfort item, a social item, and in some cases a bribery tactic for parents. We are programmed at a young age that if we are good we get those sugary snacks. No wonder now that we are adults we are staring down the barrel of a gun loaded with pre-disposed diabetes as the bullets. What do we do now?
Break the Cycle: Stop rewarding your children with sweets when they have done a good job, earned a good grade, or drew you even the most adorable picture you have ever seen. Children being exposed to sugary sweets as rewards will be at risk at a greater rate to be...

Different dog breeds fascinated man for millennia. As a matter of fact, it is impossible to acknowledge who came with the idea of dog breeding since it could be traced back during the prehistoric times. There are several reasons why dogs are bred and why you should consider having your dog bred.
Reasons for Dog Breeding
It has been proven that through artificial selection, we could alter the genes of dogs to create a superior breed, prevent abnormalities that appear from certain dog breeds or simply get a pure breed. It has been proven that this process influenced the offspring’s behavior, size, and shape.
Mating the right breeds of dog results to a more superior breed to meet man’s need. This is the reason why there are dog breeds that have their specific purposes like hunting and guarding.
Nowadays, people also do dog breeding to remove the bad gene that results to diseases or other birth abnormalities present in a certain breed of dog.
There are several dog...
Entrepreneurs fail for many reasons, but there are also other reasons why they can be successful. It doesn’t have to be difficult to achieve success as an entrepreneur. Here are ways to do that:
1. Be smarter: Not talking about the usual IQ here, but entrepreneurs should have higher EIQ or Entrepreneurial IQ. Unfortunately, many entrepreneurs don’t know what they are doing. They need to be smart enough in taking advantage of opportunities and tackling obstacles in the market. Entrepreneurs who are incapable of doing these tasks can be considered as prone to failure and not smart enough.
2. Choose the right type of funding: Many new entrepreneurs fail because they choose the wrong kind of funding. Even if they have enough money in personal savings, they could use too much of it. Borrowing money from friends and family members could actually become a source of distraction. We should expect that they will ask how their financial investment (our company) is doing. If we want to...
I know you feel guilty when you do it...sometimes, me to. But the point is, this very private activity is one of the most liberating and fulfilling things you can do for yourself. Straight to the point; here are the goodies...
1. You can deny it makes you happier.
2. You become more comfortable with your body. This means your self esteem will thrive on masturbation! Believe it
3. Masturbation allows you to explore your body and find out what feels best. Knowing your body in this way can make you more confident in bed and more vocal with partners. Once you figure out what you like, you can tell your partner where to touch you.
4. It helps you sleep.
There’s a reason most of us feel so sleepy after those toe-curling climaxes: Orgasms physically and emotionally relieve tension and exhaust the body, which allow you to fall asleep quicker. Generally people do sleep better after masturbating, but very often it’s from feeling...
Fibroids develop some where between first menstruation and menopause. Uterine Fibroids are non-cancerous growths in the muscles that line a woman's uterus. The foods a woman eats may reduce symptoms of Fibroids and prevent new growths from forming. For example, foods that tax the liver, which breaks down estrogen should be avoided.
These substances include alcohol, milk products, meat and sugar. Dairy products and meat can be a source of additional hormones from livestock and are fatty, which adds to a woman's estrogen stores. As a woman near the onset of menopause, hormonal changes increases the likelihood of fibroid development.
Lower amounts of progesterone and increased amounts of oestrogen can cause fibroid, which can lead to menstrual problems, anemia, dizziness and fatigue. A few changes in your diet and other healthy natural changes can help prevent the formation of fibroid, shrink and eliminate existing fibroid.
First of all, it would be a good idea to get a complete...
The rate at which our daily lives revolve round Facebook is alarming and that huge social dependency built on Facebook has raised the stakes really high. Pay close attention to the issues i am about to point out to you. And if you don’t use Facebook, please stop reading.
1. Facebook’s security is laughable.
‘The convenient’ isn’t always the best, is it? We often fall for the temptation to tick the box ‘remember this password’ when logging into websites because it ‘saves time’. Well, on Facebook it does more. There’s even a Firefox add-on which will allow you to hijack the Facebook login details of anyone using the same public WIFI as you. That means your passwords are not reliable to keep you safe. Do not stay online on any browser…always log out each time you want to close your browser. This would save you from giving out your login details unknowingly.
2. Stalking is incredibly easy.
People can have all the details of your life and activities without your permission,...
No thanks to social media, smartphones, and the likes. Kids of nowadays are exposed to many things they are supposed not to as a result of technology and civilization.
In the light of this, it's difficult for parents to completely monitor their children's daily activities and actions. Putting this into consideration, I will like us to learn from each other by discussing;
1. When is the right time for a child to start having a romantic relationship with an opposite sex
2. What advice can we give to a child about relationship
3. How do we identify an unhealthy relationship in our child's life
4. Can we discuss s3x with our teens
5. If we are late or accident happened, is it right to scold or support the child
I look forward to your deep thought on these aformentioned questions.
"We remain on the side of the people. We feel their pulse and their pains. We believe the removal of fuel subsidy is a great misadventure, and have conveyed our stand
on the issue in a letter to the President, though we never
got a response."
‘’President Jonathan did not tell Nigerians during his electioneering campaign, that his administration will only be able to deliver the dividends of democracy by removing fuel subsidy. Therefore, it amounts to arm-twisting the people to say that funds saved from fuel subsidy removal will be used to construct roads, build hospitals and schools and other expectations from the
"The government should have been honest enough to say it is seeking ways to raise money for governance,
and Nigerians would have been glad enough to let it know how to raise money without resorting to a
phantom fuel subsidy removal.
"Our message to the President is that if he feels he cannot explore other areas to raise money for
development, like cutting...
