|Every year, thousands of people especially woman and children fall into the |
hands of human Human traffickers. While Human trafficking is generally
abhorred and tagged 'modern dayslavery' to a select few.
"The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent, but if we can come to terms with this indifference, then our existence as a species can have genuine meaning. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light." - Stanley Kubrick

|This cape's broad A-line silhouette is paired with a figure-hugging trench coat. |
The full skirt and shoe-boots make her neck and legs look doll-like
|Teaming these pale blue Chloé trousers with a pair of high |
platforms makes petite Victoria's legs look like they go on and on
|A Victoria Beckham dress. The stiff material won't reveal any|
lumps and emphasises those thin pins
|A simple jumper from her own collection is paired with a large |
panelled skirt that reveals her legs right up to the thigh
|A doubly-flattering effect: The loose trouser bottoms make her|
thighs look tiny and the nipped-in waist is very slimming
|A funnel-necked cape by Giambattista Valli gives a glimpse of her|
legs and slender arms which are dwarfed by the large pockets and collar
|Most people would look like a blancmange in wide trousers and a flowing|
jacket, but Victoria gets it right here by keeping her arms bare
|Belted confidently at the hips, this Balenciaga dress billows |
out at the waist, making her stomach look tiny
|The single colour instantly streamlines her figure. The sharp |
angles of the coat make her look equally angular - and slim

Angelina told a Norwegian TV station, she came across 'Gloomy Sunday' on YouTube while looking for a jazz song to help her fall asleep. She added, 'I felt something special about it ... when I sang it for my mum, she said that this song is nice, but it was incredibly sad...'
So sad, in fact, the BBC banned the Billie Holiday version during World War II out of fear it would lower troop morale.
Dearest the shadows I live with are numberless
Little white flowers will never awaken you
Not where the black coach of sorrow has taken you
Angels have no thought of ever returning you
Would they be angry if I thought of joining you?
[[Gloomy is Sunday with shadows I spend it all
My heart and I have decided to end it all
Soon there'll be candles and prayers that are sad I know
Let them not weep let them know that I'm glad to go
Death is no dream for in death I'm caressing you
With the last breath of my soul I'll be blessing you
Dreaming, I was only dreaming
I wake and I find you asleep in the deep of my heart dear
Darling I hope that my dream never haunted you
My heart is telling you how much I wanted you
It was Angelina's soulful and hauntingly similar take on the song that had fans so impressed.
As a reporter for Metro put it, she 'belted out the world weary essence of a heartbroken, middle-aged woman.'
A writer for the Daily Caller wrote she sang as if she had 'lived a hard, booze-filled life.'
To no one's surprise, the judges sent Angelina through to the next round.

Recent study presented at the America Society for
Reproductive Medicine’s in 2013 Annual Meeting in Boston, discovered that bacon
and other processed meats are not too healthy for men's fertility.
Dr. Allan Pacey, a fertility specialist at the
University of Sheffield, said it was already known that a healthy diet could
increase male fertility, but it was less clear whether specific foods could be
attributed for lower sperm count.
Dr Pacey stated that “The relationship between diet and men’s fertility is an interesting one, and there is substantial evidence that men who eat more fresh fruit and vegetables have better sperm than men who don’t. However, less is known about the fertility of men with poor diets”
- Blood in urine
- Needing to urinate very often or suddenly
- Pain while urinating
- Pain below the ribs that doesn't go away
If you notice blood in your pee, even if it's just once, tell your doctor.

Have you ever been in love?
You know you’re in love when…
You can’t wait to speak to that person on the phone.
And if this person writes something giving the slightest indication that they feel the same way about you, it can make your whole day brighten up.
Even, there are chances that you don’t really know this person too well or understand this person but you love anyway. In fact, those things make you love this person more. And when you have misunderstandings—you work things out. You try to understand each other’s point of view, and you make compromises—finding the middle ground in a way that both sides are satisfied.
Do you look forward all day to that moment of time at night when you can hangout- in your favourite place (your house) and kneel in quietness and meet him in prayer? Do you hear the sound of His voice, so sweet that the birds hush their singing? Do you feel the warmth of His embrace?
And what happens when you ask God for something and He said not now my beloveth. Do you just get angry, and say, "God is God—he’ll do whatever He want." Or do you get on your knees and spend time to communicate to him and say, "God, I love you, I want to understand where you’re coming from, even if we have to talk all night. I am not happy with you, but because I love you, and I know you love me, I think we can work things out".
Think through these questions…and then ask yourself again…do I really love God? I think a lot of us did experience this kind of love when we first gave our life to Jesus Christ. I know after I Alaba Mariam Saliu received the Holy Spirit 16 years ago, I made myself a firm commitment. I will pray every day…I will study God’s word inside and out…I will do work for him joyfully…not because I have to…not because anyone’s telling me to…not because I want anything from God in exchange…but only because…I love him. The truth is, over the years, things have changed. And so, I realize. I say I love God. But I don’t really.
It’s the same that happened to the church in Ephesus. Check Revelation 2:5—Yet, I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. Remember the high from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first.
Do you love God? Are you like a bride waiting to marry her husband? Are you like the man and woman the songs of Solomon are talking about?
Imagine this scenario - an engaged couple who suddenly feels that spending time with her fiancé was boring and difficult. Imagine if this bride dreaded having to talk to his husband to be on the phone…and felt no joy when she was around him…if she felt this way, should the wedding go on?
Well, as a church (You and Me)…If our worship of God becomes dry and feels burdensome…If we don’t look forward to prayer…If we don’t feel joy when we’re in the presence of God. Then we’re like that bride, and we’re not ready to be married.
You see, Jesus Christ is exactly the same as He was when we first committed to him. It’s we who have changed. It’s our lives which have become complicated. It’s we who have wandered away from him. But the funny thing is…he still loves us anyway…he always has.
He still thinks about us every day. He still can’t wait for the moments that we decide to take time to talk to him. He cherishes the moments that we spend in his presence. So, as a bride, let’s wake up. Let’s remember back to the moment when we first accepted Jesus into our lives. Start over. Forget what lies behind…forget whatever happened since that day that has separated you from him…If a sin has caused you to be separated from him, repent of that sin and leave it.
Put aside everything that has caused you to forget your first love, and let’s prepare for the wedding day that’s written about in Revelation 19:7:
Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory For the wedding of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear (fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints)
Song of Solomon is also called “Song of Songs” and “Canticles.” is one of the nicest love songs ever written.
Now, when we hear the term ‘love song’ we tend to think of songs about physical love…the songs you hear on the radio or TV…”baby, baby, this” and “ baby I love you, jiggy that”
But those songs aren’t really about love. Or if they are, it’s infatuation.
But Song of Solomon is the greatest love songs, because they’re about a pure, spiritual love–the love that God has for us. Whatever else people call “love”, it’s just a mere shadow of God’s love.
And please read the Song of Solomon today; think about it from a spiritual sense.
The song of Solomon shows the relation between God and His people, or the relationship between Christ and the Church (You and me). Just imagine Chapter 3:4– It was but a little that I passed from them, but I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go, until I had brought him into my mother's house, and into the chamber of her that conceived me. “Christ desire over the believer cannot go, because He will not”. The mention of the "mother" excludes indecency, and communicates the idea of heavenly love, pure as a sister's, while passionate as a bride's. In another word Jesus love you and he will never let you go…….
The Summary of the Song of Solomon and how God expresses His love towards us –A voice calls to the other: They walk together (7:11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the field; let us lodge in the villages). They talk together. They express how deeply they love each other (7:6 How fair and how pleasant art thou, O love, for delights!). Their hearts are filled with such joy, they don’t want to leave.
So the next time you kneel down to pray, don’t just present your long list of requests to God. Don’t wander off and utter meaningless repetitions. Instead, plan a trip to the field, where you can walk, and talk, and be together alone with the One who loves you more than anyone has ever loved you.
