A few years ago, a friend told me that if all the wealth in this world were redistributed equally right now, it would take only a few years for the top one percenters to go back to the top of the food chain! I disagreed and asked him to explain what he meant...#issathread
He said that people who have created genuine wealth – not the ones who inherited wealth from their parents or stole from government coffers – know a thing or two about wealth creation that the rest of us do not know...

It is your last day in your old apartment. This house has been both good and bad, filled with all sorts of memories and you do have a couple of testimony from staying here. But, times have changed.

We are now live with @Ronikpe @Devcoms who answered our questions on the topic "Linkage between family Planning and women's health" You want to know why to space birth and not rush the process because you want to be young and fine again. #ISSathread #FPfriday

@ronikpe @Devcoms @Getittogether The impact of childbearing is directly proportional to the time interval of births. The lesser the spacing, the less healthy a woman is. We should realize that pregnancy is a physically and emotionally demanding process/journey for every woman- @Ronikpe #FPFriday

The vagina padlocks the penis!
But Doc, it's jaz!

Ceaserean Delivery ( C-Section, Surgical Birth, Abdominal Delivery) is the delivery of a baby or babies, through an incision (cut) in the abdomen, and the Womb. This is often indicated when a Vaginal birth ( Normal delivery) would put the mother or baby at risk
#DrJohnAfam
Its one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures.
There are a LOT of reasons, why your Doctor would recommend a C-Section and not all of them can be covered in this thread (That's how many there are).

Do Girls Mature Earlier than Boys?

Is it Scientific? Or Just a Social Construct?

If they do, why do they?

If they dont ,why do we think they do?

Fam,
#IssaThread
#DrJohnAfam
Girls actually Mature earlier than Boys,it is a Scientific and Cultural fact

Here's why,

Girl hit puberty earlier than boys, at this stage you body starts preparing for the possibility of having and raising a child.

There is an increase in the "woman" hormones
#DrJohnAfam
With puberty and its corresponding physical change, there also are many emotional and psychological changes that a woman experiences.
It is also during this time that the gray matter develops in a woman's brain.
Social awareness sets in during this whole process.

The King’s Seed – A Story About Integrity
There was once a King who had no children and needed to choose a successor.
#IssaThread @femigbaja @DrJoeAbah
Thousands of children from across the kingdom came to the palace and were surprised when the King exclaimed that he was going to choose one of them. He gave them all a seed. They were to go home to their villages, plant the seed in a pot and tend it for a month.
There was a poor boy who also received a seed. His mother helped him to choose a pot & put some soil into it. He watered his pot everyday. Often, the children of the village would gather to compare plants. After a few days, there were signs of life in all but the poor boy’s pot.
