Ebola Free: Amber Vinson Released From Emory University Hospital

The second Texas nurse (Amber Vinson) who contracted the Ebola virus while taking care of Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man who was the first patient diagnosed with the deadly virus in the United States is now Ebola free.



The happy nurse attended a press conference at Emory University Hospital after she was declared Ebola-free on Tuesday October 28, 2014.

Instead of answering questions at the press conference, she read a statement thanking God, her family, and her doctors.


Vinson thanked everyone who helped save her from Ebola amid tears
She also used the opportunity to appeal for privacy as she returned home to Texas, and she asked "that we not lose focus on thousand of families who labor under the burden of this disease in West Africa."

Amber Vinson is the fourth Ebola patient dischared from the hospital. First was Dr. Kent Brantly, second was Nancy Writebol, third was Nina Pham (the first Texas nurse that contracted the virus while taking care of Thomas Eric Duncan at the Texas Presbyterian Hospital).

Am happy for her too. Thank God!

Nigerian Man Arrested After Scaling The White House Fence

A Nigerian man by the name, Dominic Adesanya was arrested in the United States after scaling the white house fence on Wednesday October 22, 2014.


The 23 year-old Maryland resident was said to have climbed the fence on the North Lawn of the building and got about 20 yards past the fence before he was taken down by the secret service k. 9 dogs.

He actually punched one of the dogs that attacked him (for entering into the white house uninvited). I saw it on the news yesterday night and it all looked like a movie. I wonder what the guy was thinking. Smh

Ebola: Create An Awareness Instead Of Living In Fear #CleanHandIsKeyToPrevention

Seriously, instead of spreading the fear of Ebola, I think what we need to do is to spread the awareness. Let us remember that clean hand is key to prevention.


I know it's normal for us to be afraid at first, but we should learn to overcome our fear and tackle the problem at hand, especially people living in the United States.

Living in fear will not stop the virus from spreading, but creating awareness will.

If you listen to my radio program every Friday on RootsRadioLove, you will find out that I talk about how to avoid contacting the virus and I also went as far as asking some of the musician I promote on my show to record an Ebola awareness jingle for my radio show (I'm glad they did).

According to several reports, I read that some of the passengers who shared Frontier Airline with Amber Vinson, the second nurse to catch Ebola in Dallas, are now living in fear, not because they were sick but because of Ebola anxiety.

Please let's create an awareness Instead of living in fear.

Together, we can stop the virus.

7 Types Of Meals That Aide Fertility

When we talk about fertility, the first thing that comes to mind is "Women should be concerned about fertility not men". Well, I think both parties got work to do here, it shouldn't be a one party concern.

As human being, we all have our favorite food and drinks, and few of us have our favorite fruit or juice (some people are not really into fruit *don't quote me on that*)


While surfing the internet for different health topics, I found these particular article on PUNCH website. See the 7 types of meals that aide fertility below...

According to research by hellofood.com, these are the foods you should include in your diet on a daily basis, as they have shown to balance your hormones, nourish the bodily system and help promote fertility. They’ll also help you calm down and feel great.

Leafy greens/salads: These are great foods to take because they are very high in iron and folic acids. Iron and folic acids are ideal for both men and women. Eating leafy greens is particularly important for women who have low iron levels, as they are more prone to experiencing infertility.

Hard-boiled eggs: Eggs are frequently cited as among the most effective foods for promoting your fertility, as they are packed with protein, vitamins B12 and E, and often enriched with monounsaturated fat like DHA. The egg is where most of the fertility-boosting nutrients lie.
