Dressing for your body shape

I’m sure almost every lady has walked into a shop and bought some clothes only to be disappointed when she looked at herself in the mirror. The clothes don’t look so great on her. Studies have revealed that 98% of women do not know their body shapes and that is why they have trouble shopping for the right clothes for their body. In my previous post I talked about dressing mistakes that ladies make but, at times you actually think you have nailed it when it’s a disaster just because you are wearing an outfit that is not meant for your body shape. So how do you get to know your body shape and dress accordingly? Lets get right into it shall we?

Apple/Round

What you should wear: Go for empire dresses which slim down your tummy and define the narrow parts of your body. Floppy tank tops or empire line tops would look great on you also. Long tunics will help slim your your torso and would look even more fab with skinny jeans. Classic jeans or boot cuts would be perfect. By the way ladies with this body shape usually have lovely legs so you might just want to consider wearing high-low skirts or dresses.

Rectangle/Banana

What you should wear: Belts should be your thing. Belts define your waist and add a more curvy look and I’m sure you’ll love them too. You can also try out pencil skirts with a side slit they’ll look good as well. The best part is you look great in colourful bottoms and prints so go ahead, try some. Try rounded or curved shoes to add more shape to your body.

Triangle/Pear

What you should wear: I’m sure you’re very familiar with this body shape but it could be very tricky. Wear tank tops to show off your arms and add a jacket to add more volume to your upper body. One simple way of rocking this body shape is by wearing off-the-shoulder or single arm tops to balance your shoulders and hips. For your pants, bootlegs (full length), full leg line or ankle length straight pants would look awesome.

Inverted triangle

What you should wear: The trick for this body shape is creating a balance between the upper body and lower body to draw away attention from your shoulders. Go for V-neck, square or cowl neck tops or dresses to reduce your shoulder width. Wearing stretchy tops will also make you look slimmer. Try wearing well fitting blazers and blouses in dark colours to balance off your body. High waist, layered or fuller skirts will add instant curves and yea, you DO have them. Skirt lengths can be short and flared or long and flowing.

Hourglass

hourglass

What you should wear: Instead of hiding your curves, you should actually consider showing them off. Hourglasses come in petite, medium and bulk sizes so whatever size you are, embrace those curves. Wear two-piece dresses, pencil skirts or anything that accentuates your curves and smooths your thighs. Belts and peplum tops should be on your list as well to create that edgy look. Avoid baggy clothes that conceal your shape making you look bigger and older.

So which one is your body shape?

Looking and dressing good is not about which body shape you have. I know society believes that certain body shapes are the true definition of being a woman when its not true. The perfect body shape you can ever have is the one you have right now because it makes you uniquely you. Never allow social perspectives to kill your self esteem. Instead, identify your body shape, wear what suits your body shape and be confident about it. Take time to research on what you are supposed to wear and be the lady God made you to be. The girl who loves her body and owes no one an apology for being created in a certain way. You are special and be-you-tiful in God’s eyes so go ahead, dress accordingly and be the best version of you.

Teenage whizz-kid makes UZ history

History was made since the founding of the University of Zimbabwe in 1953 when 18-year-old academically-gifted Maud Chifamba graduated with a Bachelor of Accountancy Honours yesterday.

She was among 3 667 graduates from nine faculties and the College of Health Sciences who were capped by President Mugabe at the institution of higher learning.

As of 2012, Chifamba was the youngest university student in Africa. She was born in 1997 in Zimbabwe and was accepted to the University of Zimbabwe to read for an accounting degree.

The teenage whizz-kid began attending in 2012 and also received a $9 933 scholarship from the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority Chairman’s Charity Fund. Chifamba lost her father when she was five, in 2002, before she started first grade.

By that time, her mother was suffering from cancer and could not care for her and her brother, two years younger.

This prompted Maud to fall under the care of a step brother, who at the time was residing at a plot he had been allocated during the land reform programme in Hunters Road, in between Kwekwe and Gweru, Midlands Province, Zimbabwe.

In 2003 she started her first grade at a school named Hurudza Primary school. In 2005, when she was in grade 3, during the mid year exams, she was mistakenly given a grade 4 exam paper in which she scored 100 percent. The following term during the same year, she requested a Grade 5 test paper in which she achieved the highest score.

She proceeded to Grade seven and she had 6 units. As Chifamba did not have money for high school she studied on her own(home schooled) and completed her Ordinary Level in just two years, that was 2009. She was later identified by the Ministry of Education and awarded financial assistance for her advanced level, upper six in 2011 and she scored 12 points.

Her mother died of cancer that year. After making headlines internationally, Chifamba was awarded a $9,993 scholarship by the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority. In 2013 Chifamba scored distinctions at the University of Zimbabwe, where she was studying for her Bachelor of Accountancy Honours Degree.

She wrote her Grade seven examination at the age of 10 and her A-level at the age of 13. In 2007 Chifamba was named the best student under the most difficult conditions in the Midlands Province.

In December 2012, Chifamba was fifth on the Forbes Top 100 Youngest Powerful Women in Africa and she was also entered in the book of African Records as the youngest university student in the continent.

In October 2013, Chifamba was a delegate at the launching of a Terre des hommes campaign for girls in Rome, Italy. On 25 October 2013, Chifamba shared the high table at the International Day of the Girl Child celebrations with ministers and musicians. The event was hosted by UNICEF, held in Zimbabwe and she delivered a speech.

Faculties that graduated yesterday are Agriculture, Arts, Commerce, Education, Engineering, Law, Science, Social Studies and Veterinary Science. Of the graduates, 3 106 were conferred with first degrees, 535 with Masters Degrees and 25 with Doctor of Philosophy degrees.

Among the graduates, 25 were conferred with Doctor of Philosophy degrees and from those graduating with bachelors’ degrees, 149 had first class passes. For the first time in the history of the University, an 18-year old student was also conferred with her Bachelor’s degree in Accounting.

The graduate, Maud Chifamba, joined the University at the age of 14 years and completed her degree at the age of 18 years. This year’s graduation ceremony also saw the first pioneering graduates of the Marondera University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology.

In his address, UZ Vice Chancellor Professor Levi Nyagura, described this year’s ceremony as historic saying all these achievements were a first in the 61 year history of the University. He said the University will continue to engage with various stakeholders and strategic partners for continuous improvement and to remain relevant.

“We do recognise that our society is getting more complex with dynamic varying sets of requirements,” said Prof Nyagura. He said this presented a challenge that called for a re-thinking of the nature of the public service the university should provide.

Prof Nyagura said to that end, the University’s focus should be more on socialisation of knowledge by making sure that the university produced highly-qualified professionals and that the best research results were transferred to society.

He said the UZ was also open to capture the knowledge generated by society so as to sustain and further develop the intellectual and cultural base of the country.

“In this endeavour, we have committed ourselves to participate in national projects that empower our country to be competitive regionally, continentally and internationally,” said Prof Nyagura.

He said in addition, the University also reviewed its curriculum to promote innovation, application of science and technology and entrepreneurship. “Our focus is to produce graduates with a strong foundation in science and technology and with problem solving and analytical skills,” he said.

Some of the training incorporated include Forensic Science, Geospatial Intelligence and Aeronautical Engineering. Prof Nyagura said the university had also excelled in the development of GIS (Geographic Information System) and Earth Observation Sciences.

“The motivation for this development is the realisation that geographic sciences are key to human security including disaster and emergency response, crime and terrorism prevention, surveillance of diseases and disease vector outbreaks,” he said.

He said the University’s GIS and Earth Observation Centre had since been assigned by the African Union to carry out two major tasks. Nyagura said the University also embarked on a number of projects aimed at increasing infrastructure to meet the growing demand of education.

These projects include a building complex with 10 state of the art lecture rooms with a combined sitting capacity of 1000, a pharmacy laboratory that accommodates 130 students and an engineering computer laboratory fully equipped with 100 state of the art computers.

The University also constructed three additional lecture rooms with a combined sitting capacity of 200 and is currently constructing a 1 100-seater modern lecture theatre.

#CampusMomentsAfterDark: The 6 Foods You Should Never Eat Before Having Sex

Picture this: You’re sweaty, out of breath, and sore at the core. Is it ab day at the gym? Or just some good ol’ fashioned mattress dancing? Either way, what you eat before any kind of physical activity can affect your performance. In terms of sex, bloating, fatigue, or indigestion, certain foods can significantly decrease libido. So if you’re expecting a roll in the hay after your Tinder date, steer clear of ordering dishes with these anti-aphrodisiacs

1. Indian Food

Pungent spices used in Indian-cuisine, like curry, turmeric, and cumin, sneak into your pores and linger there for a few days. While these aromas are heavenly in food, they stank on skin. So do your sexual partner a favor and skip the curried chicken perfume. If you can’t resist, check out these tips to get your hands to stop smelling like tikka masala.

2. Spicy Food

One minute you’re enjoying that hot, spicy meal, and the next — just when you’re about to shake the sheets — you regret every bite. Depending on how much you eat, spicy foods can cause heartburn, acid reflux, indigestion, and worst of all…fiery poop.

3. Bean-Based Foods

Hummus, chili, black bean burgers — you name it. Where there’s a bean, there’s a fart just waiting to ruin the bedroom rodeo. These kidney-shaped legumes contain sugar molecules your stomach and small intestines find difficult to digest. By the time these sugars reach our colon, bacteria breaks it down into a cloud of gas, making you feel puffy at the gut and weak at the groin.

4. Starchy Carbs

We all love carbs, but too much of them can drop blood sugar levels and make you sluggish and tired — not ideal if you plan to sexercise. When you eat hot chips, for example, you get a surge of energy from the carbohydrates. But once your body starts to break down and remove that energy, you lose your thunder and ultimately crash. To keep it exciting in bed, avoid eating carb-heavy meals like pasta or white rice.

5. Asparagus

If you’re a picky eater who won’t eat anything green, then you’re off the hook for this one. But for all of you asparagus-loving bros out there — beware. Once eaten, these tender green shoots break down into a sulfur-like substance called asparagusic acid.In as little as 15 minutes, this acid travels all throughout your body. That means when it’s time to go down, stuff not only smells funky but tastes sour.

6. Onions and garlic

To all you ladies, it’s important to remember that your cha-cha is a little ecosystem. Anything that throws it off balance can result in unpleasant odors, among other things. Strong-smelling, pungent-tasting foods like onions and garlic might slightly change the odor of your…um…secretions. So if you’re looking to get turned on later, skip the caramelized onions and garlic sauce.

Now that you know about the major food no-no’s, you can safely make the bacon without any smells, discomfort, or embarrassment. May the food you eat be in your favor.

TWISTED IN THE GOLDEN HOUR

by Neddy Makonza | NUST-ZW

THE most embarrassing thing to do is tell someone about your manhood. Can you however live with telling someone about the disability of your manhood? This can happen if you feel excruciating pain around your groin area and decide to be strong and not seek help.

torsion-of-testis

Testicular torsion is a true urologic emergency and must be differentiated from other complaints of testicular pain because a delay in diagnosis and manage­ment can lead to loss of the testicle. Al­though testicular torsion can occur at any age, including the prenatal and perinatal periods, torsion is most frequent among adolescents with about 65% of cases presenting between 12 – 18 years of age. It occurs in about 1 in 4,000 to 1 per 25,000 males per year before 25 years of age. , it is the most frequent cause of testicle loss in that population.

The testicles are 2 organs that hang in a pouch of skin called the scrotum which sits below the penis. This is where sperm and male sex hormone (testosterone) are made. The blood supply for each testicle comes from the spermatic cord. This cord starts in the abdomen and extends into the scrotum. This cord also contains the vas deferens, which carries sperm from the testicles to the urethra. Damage to these structure is detrimental as they determine the fertility of an individual. However luckily one has two of them.

Testicular torsion occurs when a testicle rotates, twisting the spermatic cord that brings blood to the scrotum. The reduced blood flow causes sudden and often severe pain
and swelling..

Testicular torsion occurs when a testicle rotates, twisting the spermatic cord that brings blood to the scrotum. The reduced blood flow causes sudden and often se­vere pain and swelling due to ischaemia. The testicle is deprived of oxygen and also swelling occur causing compression of the structure and pain. This occurs in about 17% of males and is bilateral in 40%.The following features are associated with higher likelihood of torsion :

  • Pain duration of less than 24 hours
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • High position of the testicle
  • Transverse lie of the affected testis
  • Abnormal cremasteric reflex

 

Embarrassment in the young patient may prevent disclosure of scrotal pain, and scrotal pain referred to the lower abdomen may be perceived as not being of scrotal or testicular origin. For this reason, any young male who com­plains of lower abdominal pain should undergo examination of the external genitalia to rule out the possibility of scrotal or testicular pathology.

In contrast intravaginal torsion most commonly occurs in adolescents. It is thought that the increased weight of the testicle after puberty, as well as sudden contraction of the cremasteric muscles (which inserts in a spiral fashion into the spermatic cord), is the impetus for acute torsion. Testicular torsion is also associated with testicular malignancy, especially in adults; one study found a 64% association of testicular torsion with testicular malignancy. This is thought to be secondary to a relative increase in the broadness of the testicle compared with its blood supply.

This is a urological emergency; early diagnosis and treatment are vital to saving the testicle and preserving future fertility. Testicular torsion requires emergency surgical treatment to prevent further ischemic damage to the testis. If treated quickly, the testicle can be saved. But when blood flow has been cut off for too long, a testicle might become so badly damaged that it has to be removed.

@kidshealth

 

To prevent loss of the testicles the patient must present within 6 hours after onset of symptoms. Salvaging of the testicle in this instance is possible. This period is called the ‘golden hour’ as it determines whether the testicle survives or not. However if pa­tient delays and present within 24 hours there is a very slight chance to save the testicle but it is indefinite. Presentation after 24 hours the testicle is most likely damaged so nothing can be done to revive the testicle.

History and physical examination are imperfect in ruling out testicular torsion. However very useful and time conscious as patient is quickly taken to theatre if torsion is suspected. Imaging studies (eg, ultrasonography, nuclear scans) may be useful when a low suspicion of testicular torsion is noted. Surgical exploration should not be delayed for the sake of performing imaging studies as this will eat into the golden hour.

Complications that can occur due to un­treated testicular torsion are ;Testicular infarction( death of testicle), Scrotal ab­scess (pus in the scrotum and infection), Gangrene of testis (death and loss of testi­cle), Recurrence, Chronic epididymitis.

In conclusion immediate action in the golden hour is vital to save one’s testicles, fertil­ity, pride and prevent future marital problems.
