The type of music you need to spruce up a romantic night

 

What are some of the romantic songs you would play for your boo? I have come come up with a list of songs, that have been played over time and are timeless.

You don’t only need to wait for Valentines just for you to show some affection to your boo or for anniversaries or special occasions. You can do it as often as possible to keep the flames of your relationship still burning.

It  has been argued time and time again that Kenyan men have no hint of being romantic, neither do they know how to show affection to the ladies.

I would like to challenge and give them this task of making the relationship more spicy and entertaining, not only in the bedroom but also outside it.

‘My man loves me yet I met him while procuring an abortion,’ Brags woman

Does where you meet a man determine whether he will marry you or not ?Well this is the dilemma one woman has found herself in.

They say you can meet the love of your life in a bar, church or at a bus stop but for * Nelly she met him as she was visiting a clinic to carry out an abortion.

Yes you read that right. The problem is that every time Nelly gets pregnant he takes her for an abortion and she feels he is using her past to judge her.

“My priest tried to penetrate me from behind,”cries city woman

Narrating her sad ordeal on a social media platform, she says

” I met him on my way to go and do abortion, because he was so nice I opened up to him, told him everything and he loved me for me.

I wanted him to taste my body before I take out the pregnancy so we had S#x in the car that same day , after s#x he drove me to the place I did the abortion and even paid and bought me drugs . 

Since then we have been dating and he is so sweet .

He does everything for me but I am scared he might not marry me I am scared because anytime we get intimate and I tell him I am pregnant, he will just drive me straight to where he met me and pay for the abortion

He even collected the docs number, I have 3 of his pregnancies since we met and I feel that he is judging me with my past .

Do you think he will marry me or should I ask just  him?”

Woman narrates how man used and abused her body during s#xual ordeal

Below are some of the comments some full of wisdom while some are straight to the point

How your skin changes in your 30’s

 

Your skin naturally loses some elasticity as one ages. While it’s all good in your 20s, by the time you enter dirty thirty your body produces less collagen and elastin—two substances responsible for the firmness of your skin .

So to avoidit looking saggy, heere are a few things you need to know to respond appropriately. From needing more sleep, to avoid too much alcohol and smoking and oily food (goodbye warus) your skin is in transition according to dermatologists.

This is a list of skin changes you can expect in your 30s:

1. You notice that your skin is looking a little dull
Your skin cell turnover slows down as early as your 20s. By the time you hit your 30s new cells are visible every 28-35 days, whereas they once turned over every 14 days or so when you were a child.

2. Your skin is dry, dry, dry
The top layer of skin struggles to maintain moisture from our skin care products and this is hen people notice your face is duller.  It’s recommended you se products with hyaluronic acid.

woman-eating-watermelon

3. Your face doesn’t look as full as it used to
Forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, bags under the eyes, and more prominent laugh lines are all new things you might notice in your 30s. Changing hormones also contribute to many of these changes, specifically a loss of estrogen that causes us to lose volume and bone mass in our skull, cheekbones, and jawline.

4. Your skin seems to get irritated more often
From experiencing more dryness, skin at this age is also affected by climate for instance dust, cold weather. Also products such as soap may lead to outbreaks at this stage in life, which means we more than ever need better skin care to include cleansers, toners, and serum.

5. Dark spots appear from nowhere and take long to fade unlike before

You may begin to notice scars and other marks taking much more time to fade.  It’s worse for our darker skinned sistas.

A list of the drugs used to spike drinks in clubs

 

Which drugs do people use to spike drinks at social venues?

The Star took out to investigate.

ROHYPNOL

For Stephen, the drug that was used on him is called Rohypnol.

These drugs are in the form of tablets and can be crushed and snorted up the nose or dissolved in a liquid prior to drinking.

Also known as bugizi, rape drug, forget me drug, circles or lunch money drug it is a colourless and odourless pill.

It retails at Sh850 at local chemists and online pharmacies.

The pill is preferred for its colourless and odourless characteristic when added to drinks or food.

The liquid form can also be applied to women’s breasts and sucked by men.

A police source who asked for anonymity says criminals prefer to have them in powder form for ease of spiking.

“The pill is grounded to powder and can be added to drinks or food without one noticing for it’s colourless and odourless,” he said.

According to Dr Faith Mwangagi, the drug causes sedative effects.

The action of the drug is experienced 20 minutes after administration and can last for six to seven hours.

For some, the effect can last for 12 hours or more after administration.binge-drinking-

 

“The action of Rohypnol appears in 20 minutes after administration and lasts six to seven hours,” she said.

If wrongly administered she said it causes slurred speech, inability to concentrate, poor coordination, dizzy feelings, lack of inhibition, nausea and amnesia.

Rohypnol may also be used with other drugs of abuse, such as alcohol or cocaine for various effects.

Rohypnol can increase the intoxication of alcohol or may be used to lower the irritability and anxiety linked with excessive cocaine use (binging).

VALIUM

Dr Geoffrey Mutuma says Valium at lower doses helps ease pain, reduce anxiety and relax muscles.

He said short term use is generally safe and effective.

When misused it causes some to sleep and feel out of touch with their surrounding.

“Valium is a sedative. It relaxes muscles but if misuses it makes one oversleep,” he said.

He said Valim does not kill when used in overdose but instead makes one sleep for even two days.

KETAMINE

Ketamine helps sedatives work and may help people need fewer addictive painkillers, like morphine after surgery or while caring for burns.

When misused, ketamine can change your sense of sight and sound.

Colleagues drinking together in bar

“You can have hallucinations and feel out of touch with your surroundings and even from yourself, “Mutuma said.

He said Ketamine can make it hard to speak or move, and it’s been abused as a date-rape drug.

He said its overdose does not kill.

It can reduce bodily sensations, prompting a floating feeling which can render you immobile – an experience which is sometimes referred to as “entering a k-hole” in instances when the drug is taken recreationally.

It can also provoke hallucinations, panic attacks and memory loss.

The effects can begin after five minutes of taking the drug and a “trip” normally lasts between 30 minutes and several hours.

Kenyan man, 31, confesses addiction to the blue pill to impress girlfriend

Court of Appeal Judge Prof Otieno Odek collapsed and died in his Milimani home in Kisumu.

Police say they found blue pills on his bedside. While it’s not confirmed his death was as a result of the medication, investigations into the cause of death have been launched.

This formed the basis of the Tuesday conversation where Mwalimu said men are under pressure by their women to perform.

A young man called in saying he desperately wants to wean off the blue pill but knows his lady may dump him for failing to match up.

‘I’m stuck and can’t let go’

The man first tried the pill in response to the demands of his girl. He wanted to impress her with his skills, but unfortunately couldn’t match up without a little help from medicine.

at the age of 31 I was diagnosed with hypertension.My doctors have been pleading with me to stop using, but I can’t let go because they say it might be one of my causes for the disease cause of blue pills

The fear of disappointing her led him to a chemist.

From then on, the man said things progressed until he became addicted to the pills – taking them every time he was with his woman – which given his desire to show off his skills was quite frequently.

I am on hyertension drugs na bado nameza the blue pills coz I set a standard, coz it gets to a point I can’t let go. I set a standard to my women I can’t let go. I met another doctor who advised I let go for a month, then I use again, it’s very bad, how do I stop using the blue pill and the standard is set?

 

Many doctors warn that while Viagra is a very safe drug that can help many men and save marriages, taking any medication when it hasn’t been prescribed by a doctor and isn’t necessary comes with risks and side effects.

Dear Classic 105 fam, have you resorted to using the pill and what has been your experience?

How to use Apple Cider Vinegar to stop itching from braids

 
How do you naturally stop an itchy scalp?

I have for the longest time dealt with itchiness owing to constant braiding. A friend advised me to buy Apple Cider Vinegar, as a home remedy to stop the scalp from driving me crazy.

It worked guys, it’s all I ever use.

Apple cider vinegar has antibacterial , anti-inflammatory, and antifungal properties.

box braids

For those dealing with hair issues such as itchy scalp or hair breakage, apple cider vinegar might be a great natural remedy to explore.

Here are two different ways you can deal with an itchy scalp:
Rinse the hair BEFORE you install. The girls at the salon won’t do it, so here’s where your DIY skills come into play. Soak the hair braids in a bucket of lukewarm water, an add the vinegar. Let it sit for 15 minutes, then rinse it out. Air dry the braids, and head out to the salon.

side braids

Use a spray bottle. If it starts to itch or becomes irritated a few days after braiding, get a spray bottle and put 2 parts water to 1 part apple cider vinegar and spray it on directly on the entire scalp. Let it sit for about an hour and then rinse.

Thank me later when you feel the immediate relief. Girls, what other tips do you have, that would benefit other clueless sisters out there? Drop your comments below.

9 carcinogenic things you are exposed to everyday

 

You must have heard this word before but never paid much attention.

Here’s why you should read this article.

A carcinogen is something that can cause you to have cancer. It may be a substance in the air, a product you use, or a chemical in foods and drinks.

Clinical Nutritionist Stella Kimani was on Classic 105, where she discussed matters Cancer.

‘When we’re getting cancer and other diseases, why? I mean we brought ourselves here, The farmer could be feeding you carcinogens. We are seeing alot of weed, herbicides, that have been banned on other countries coming into Kenya.

So before you’re food even gets into your plate the farmer has already started the process of killing you and then the person selling that probably was grown on sewage decides to apply on apples some sort of stuff to make them look shiny so that they look fresh to you, the grapes as well, so the entire food chain is problematic’

Here are things that are carcinogenic, and you had no idea:

  1. Tobacco
  2. Crispy brown foods – When some vegetables, like potatoes, are heated to high temps, they give off a chemical called acrylamide.
  3. Formaldehyde – From plywood to some fabrics, this chemical is used in many household products. Studies on lab rats and people who are around formaldehyde at their jobs show it can cause cancer.
  4. Ultraviolet Rays – Studies show that ultraviolet (UV) rays, whether from the sun or a tanning bed, get absorbed into your skin and damage the cells there. Most skin cancer cases are due to UV rays.

‘All is well’ Governor Nanok assures after mild stroke scare

Turkana Governor Josphat Nanok has given an assurance that he is well and recuperating at home.

The governor insisted he was doing fine and was not in the hospital as earlier indicated.

He, however, did not disclose what he was ailing from despite having told his colleagues that he had been unwell.

A message seen by the Star states.

Other sources told the Star that Nanok had complained of abdominal pain and facial weakness before going to the hospital.

josephnanok

“An endoscopy was done and an MRI scan. He was immediately put on physiotherapy as it was suspected to be a mild stroke on the left side of his face,” the source told the Star.

The governor’s communication team did not deny or confirm the reports.

One of his communication directors said he was not aware of the incident, but said he would make inquiries and get back.

However, several attempts to get a confirmation from him thereafter were futile as several calls and text messages went unanswered.

Another source said Nanok’s team had not been notified about what was ailing the governor.

Eating AFRICAN ants, grasshoppers and silkworms could protect against CANCER

 
– Scientists at the University of Rome made drinks out of ground up insects

– They tested them for health-giving antioxidants such as vitamins A, C and E

– Some types had five times as many antioxidants as orange juice

– These can prevent DNA damage which may lead to cancerous tumours forming

Eating ants and other bugs could protect people from developing cancer, according to scientists.

Although not an appetising ingredient of a salad or smoothie, the creepy crawlies may be worth stomaching for their health benefits alone.

Research found some types contain more antioxidants than orange juice in a study which saw them ground down to be mixed into a drink.

Antioxidants, such as vitamins, reduce the development of potentially-dangerous free radicals in the body, the scientists said, protecting against DNA damage.

One researcher said nearly a quarter of people in the world already eat bugs and the rest might do well to overcome their squeamishness and follow suit.

Scientists at the University of Rome ground down various insects including ants, grasshoppers, crickets and silkworm.

They then tested the powder to work out how many antioxidants – compounds such as vitamins A, C and E and beta-carotene – were in them.

Only the soluble parts of the insects were used – their wings and stingers were taken off first – with the view of them being consumed as a drink.

The tests revealed silkworm, African caterpillars and giant cicadas had twice as many antioxidants as olive oil.

And powdered cricket, grasshopper and silkworm had five times as many antioxidants as notoriously nutritious orange juice.

‘Edible insects are an excellent source of protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids, minerals, vitamins and fibre,’ scientist Professor Mauro Serafini said.
