Business process outsourcing (BPO)
Brought to you by IPMC
Business process outsourcing
(BPO) is a form of outsourcing
which entails contracting opera-
tions and responsibilities of specif-
ic business functions (or processes)
to a third-party service provider. In
the early days, BPO usually consist-
ed of outsourcing processes such
as payroll functions.

Now it is common for organizations
to outsource financial and adminis-
tration (F&A) processes, human
resources (HR) functions, call center
and customer service activities and
accounting and payroll.

Most services provided by BPO vendors are offered on a fee-for-service basis. This helps a company
become more flexible by transforming fixed into variable costs. Outsourcing may provide a firm with
increased flexibility in its resource management and reduce response times to major environmental
changes.

A company is also able to focus on its core competencies, without being burdened by the demands of
a bureaucratic structure. Key employees are thus released from performing non-core or administrative
processes and can invest more time and energy in building the firm’s core businesses and thereby help-
ing the company create a competitive edge.

Finally, BPO can be a major foreign exchange earner for a country’s economy. India currently receives
revenues of about $10.9 billion annually from BPO. In Africa, Morocco, Egypt and South Africa have
emerged as the African powers of BPO.

To increase Ghana’s competiveness, IPMC College of Technology is collaborating with international BPO
firms to set up offices in Accra, Ghana’s capital. Prior to that IPMC would be training individuals who
wish to work in the BPO industry. Already, IPMC College of Technology has incorporated BPO courses at
its two major branches – Graphic Road & Tesano. These courses shall be extended to other IPMC College
of Technology branches very soon.

Hair talk with Clu-chey
Shampooing techniques
Now its time to shampoo! As you are aware, shampoo is a
purifier/cleanser for your hair. Shampoos work well when mixed with
water and massaged in. The primary purpose of a shampoo is to
remove sebum (oil), dead cells, sweat and product build up. In addi-
tion, it also stimulates your scalp and helps to make your hair shiny Sam Clu-Chey Adika Technical
Manager Softsheen-Carson
and healthy (when done correctly).

How to shampoo
First completely wet your hair all over. This is necessary because it helps remove dust and
1 other materials from the surface of the hair. Saturating hair first will also helps the molecules
in the shampoo to get rid of dirt easier.

Massage sufficient shampoo between your palms before spreading it onto your hair and scalp
2 with your fingertips. (Never pour shampoo directly from the bottle onto the hair). Massage
firmly but gently. Remember, using force will not make removal of dirt any easier. The ideal
shampoo to have is “Dark and Lovely Moisture Seal 3-N-1 Conditioning Shampoo”. This
shampoo, cleanses gently, conditions, detangles and locks in moisture during the shampooing
process.

Rinse it well with clean warm water until all shampoo is out. Though
3 rinsing your hair may seem simple enough, the fact still remains that, most
people do not rinse well enough. Work your fingertips through your hair
while rinsing. Poor rinsing will result in dull hair, flaky and itchy scalp. If you
have thick/coarse hair, or your hair is very dirty then shampoo again.

After a thorough rinse with warm water – at least 30 second – gently
4 pat your hair with a towel and lightly squeeze down the hair to the end
or wrap a towel around your head and leave it on for about 5 minutes.
Never rub your hair strongly, unless you want dreadlocks.

Shampooing tips:
• Brush/comb your hair before shampooing. This will remove dirt/dead
skin cells from the scalp, free hair from all tangles and possibly pins
used in styling.
• Never use water that is too hot or cold. Always use clean warm water.
• Never rinse your hair with used bath water.
• Remember, any time you shampoo you loose some hair, so, don’t panic
this is normal.

PROFILE OF GHANA’s magician
A magician is an individual performing art that
entertains an audience by creating illusions of
seemingly impossible or supernatural feats, using
purely natural means. These feats are called magic
tricks, effects or illusions. In some years past in
Ghana, troops of magician passed through the
towns and villages in Ghana performing such acts
as cutting someone into pieces burying them and
eventually resurrecting them after 3 days.
One Ghanaian, who is still involved in this practice
currently and renowned the world over is
CHRISTOPHER VONCUJOVI. Known as the black
superman, he was born on the 4th of July 1960
into the family of Traditional Chief Makers of the
Volta Region, in whose hands mysticism and real
magic was an everyday affair. He grew up around
traditional magicians admiring their feats and
dreamt of becoming one himself when he grew
up.

After his first Career as a teacher he went to India
to study Oriental Philosophy and became a Hindu
related Sanyansi (Monk). He was made Regional
Priest of Bangkok Region covering Vietnam, Laos
and Cambodia including Thailand, but finally left
the Monk hood after four years and decided to go
back to his childhood fascination of becoming a
great MAGICIAN.

Combining African, Indian and Western Styles of
Magic, Christopher has originated what he calls:
“AFRICO HINDU MAGIC” which includes the Fakir
styles of magic, Fire eating acts, magic with ani-
mals, playing cards, silks, dancing on broken bot-
tles, lifting things with his eyeballs, mind reading,
illusions and many other Stunts with which he
traveled the world performing at Night Clubs,
Hotels, Resort Hotels, Amusement Parks etc. He
has performed on Trains, Cruise Boats and other
social gatherings around the World. He has per-
formed to audiences which include African leaders
at the A.U summit, lifted the Ghana flag high at the
Japan Cup and the launch of M.T.N, night of 1002
laughs among others. At all these performances
the audience is held spell bound by his style and
the professionalism he brings to the act.

FAT
ATTACK
The body gains a lot of weight as you reach your middle years: self-confidence, wisdom, con-
trol, stature, freedom and unfortunately weight. Whether it’s a joke of mother nature’s or an
accident of evolution, your scale and age creeps at the same time as you reach your thirties,
forties and beyond.

All sorts of factors fight against you in your battle with extra pounds at this period of time in
your life. It’s very easy to gain weight. There are many kinds of metabolic metamorphoses that
promote weight gain as you grow older. Your body’s metabolism slows down, in other words,
you burn less calories as you perform an activity now than you would have some 20 years ago.
Even most athletes decrease energy expenditure (output) with aging. You also tend to be
physically inactive at this stage of your life than you were at your younger age, and it slows
your calorie burn even more. Most of all, the muscle mass naturally decreases. Muscle use
more energy fuel than any other kind of tissue, including fat, and since muscles are used to
burn fat, having less of it diminishes your calorie burn still further. It sounds as if you are
doomed, but there are reasons to give hope a chance. We are not supposed to look the same
as we did at age 20 or 25, so a little extra weight will not hurt us, especially when we were
physically active. On average, most men and women gain 10-15 pounds by age 60. The key
to these years is to find a healthy weight as you “TRAIN SMART and EAT RIGHT”

The art of weaving canes and
baskets is as old as the history
of mankind. Traces of baskets
have been found in the
Egyptian pyramids, and
woven basket liners have left
their impressions inside the
fragments of ancient pottery.
Usually the traditions and
expertise is transferred down
from generation to generation
of adept craftsmen.

As you take a stroll through
the streets of Cantonments
you discover with awe the rich diversity of products created by some of these expert craftsmen. New
times require new technologies, Kwaku hails from the Jomoro district of the Western Region, tells me
they now had to learn carpentry and electrical in order to meet the design needs of their mostly
expatriate clientele.

Kwaku sits using cane strips, weaves what appeared to be a standing basket, his eyes were fixed
intently on the work, hands moving expertly. The basket intricately done with artificial designs was
the product of a skilled and professional cane weaver. A closer inspection of the finished work
reveals a most beautiful Television stand with six completed light shades and electrical wiring to pro-
vide lighting.

I could not but be held in awe
at the beauty before me, in
this open air workshop one
could find hand woven beds,
book shelves, dining tables
sets, sitting room chairs and
tables as well as other fashion-

ing your house or even office
the perfect décor.

“How long have you been
doing this?” I asked him and
the answer was forth coming
with hint of pride “for the past
twelve years.” Kwaku had
been weaving on off since his childhood and decided to work full time in 1997. It was a trade he had
learnt well and has gained considerable experience in.
Kwaku and his colleagues, who number about ten, work as a team on projects so as to finish faster
and their location in Cantonments is ideal for their target market.

In days gone by basket cane
weaving was mostly for making
baskets for the transport and
storage of everything imaginable
from food, clothing, seeds and
even babies. Cane weaving has
evolved so much so that almost
any conceivable idea with wood
can be created by these men
hungry to make your day, of
course at a small fee.

History has it that the art was
transferred across the continents
through the explorers. As the
explorers arrived in new lands,
they traded goods. The goods
were shipped in baskets- thus, as
the recipient of the goods looked
over the basket, he/she then
applied that weaving technique
to the materials of their own land.
This explains how so many Asian
techniques- like hexagonal
weaves- are found in European
baskets, and how European tech-
niques were then carried over to
the Americas.

Thus, the basic types of basket
weave patterns can be applied to
grasses, trees and other natural
fibers worldwide

Kwaku and his colleagues howev-
er are appealing to the govern-
ment for a permanent place with
a structure to do their work.
According to them all work ceas-
es when it starts raining.

Cane weaving can be a rich
source of employment for our
unemployed youth and once
their group is well organized then
they can then contribute taxes to
raise the revenue of the state.

I just got myself a nice laundry
basket with my name inscribed
on it, go get yours at the cane
weaving shop near you.

Synopsis: British director Danny Boyle takes another
intriguing career turn with this heartfelt underdog tale.
Slum dog Millionaire is the story of Jamal Malik, an 18 year-
old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who is about to expe-
rience the biggest day of his life. With the whole nation
watching, he is just one question away from winning a stag-
gering 20 million rupees on India’s “Who Wants To Be A
Millionaire?”But when the show breaks for the night, police
arrest him on suspicion of cheating; how could a street kid
know so much? Desperate to prove his innocence, Jamal tells
the story of his life in the slum where he and his brother grew
up, of their adventures together on the road, of vicious
encounters with local gangs,
and of Latika, the girl he
loved and lost. Each chapter
of his story reveals the key to
the answer to one of the
game show’s questions.
Intrigued by Jamal’s story,

ent desire for riches is really
doing on this game show?
