In a profession which has an attrition rate as fleeting as the love of a playboy to a new found girl, one woman has remained so faithful to her second love- journalism.

For 20 years, Dzifa Bampoh has blazed the trail in a profession that brings popularity, leaves out prosperity in a material sense and offers lots of confrontation - on the job and on the field.

Heart attack risk for common painkillers

Posted On: 2017-05-15

A fresh study suggests there may be a link between taking high doses of common anti-inflammatory painkillers – such as ibuprofen – and heart attacks.

The paper, published in The BMJ, builds on a previous body of work linking these drugs to heart problems.

This research suggests the risk could be greatest in the first 30 days of taking the drugs.

Posted On: 2017-04-24

An overuse of mobile phones by parents disrupts family life, according to a survey of secondary pupils.

More than a third of 2,000 11 to 18-year-olds who responded to a poll said they had asked their parents to stop checking their devices.

And 14% said their parents were online at meal times, although 95% of 3,000 parents, polled separately, denied it.

The research was carried out by Digital Awareness UK and the Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Continue Reading »

Vigilante groups in Ghana a necessary evil Article

Posted On: 2017-04-19

The proliferation of vigilante groups in Africa and Ghana in particular, has been attributed by many scholars to the failure of the security services to guarantee safety.

But this is only a part of the story. In the book “Global Policing Research and Practice” it is noted that, the rise of such groups may be part of the package of transition from post-conflict and post-authoritarian rule to democracy and free market systems.

The authors argue this led to Continue Reading »

Why a Gospel musician may never win VGMA Artiste of the Year award

Posted On: 2017-03-31

Since the inception of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards eighteen (18) years ago, no Gospel musician has won the ultimate award before; and this has been the bane of Gospel musicians and their fans.

The closest they have ever come to winning the prize, is to get nominated and, as usual, there is one Gospel artiste nominated in this year’s Artiste of the Year category for the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards – Joe Mettle.

This year, I have seen fans and Continue Reading »

Posted On: 2017-03-09

This International Women’s Day I want to celebrate the New faces of telecommunications’ players in Ghana – they are SMART, they are experiencing, and they are fierce. Above all, they are women making waves in this traditionally male-dominated sector.

Vitamin D pills could stop colds or flu

Posted On: 2017-02-18

Vitamin D supplements could spare more than three million people from colds or flu in the UK each year, researchers claim.

The sunshine vitamin is vital for healthy bones, but also has a role in the immune system.

The analysis, published in the British Medical Journal, argues food should be fortified with the vitamin.

But Public Health England (PHE) says the infections data is not conclusive, although it does recommend supplements.

These, it Continue Reading »
