"I believe we can go further. Indeed, I am convinced that we can eliminate single-use plastic bags altogether in favour of long-lasting and more sustainable alternatives."

Gordon Brown· Prime Minister ofthe UK

Fight the Plastic Plague

Our environment has become heavily ments Mr. Phillippe Courbet, Environment plagued with plastic waste. This is partly due Counsellor at the French Embassy.

to lack of education on the matter, insufficient

environmental initiatives and limited support for projects geared towards assisting our communities to understand the importance of keeping our cities dean.

Plastics have recently emerged the easiest and most cost effective material to preserve our food and water. While it has

solved one problem however, iit has created another. The unhealthy disposal of used plastic has lead to this enormous sanitation challenge.

In their bid to help address this issue, the French Embassy has joined forces with Trashy Bags to launch an initiative

called 'Fight

Plastic Plague'. This focuses on the idea of reducing, reusmq and recycling plastic waste.

'The principle is to have days reserved for sensltlsation on the negative impact of plastic bags on the environment and introduce more innovative ways of rnanaqinq plastic waste" com-

4 I December 2008

With support from Tigo, Ministry ofTourism and other organizations, 'Fight the Plastic Plague' takes off this month with shopping bag sales at all the major supermarkets including Maxmart,

Koala, Shoprite and Game. At these supermarkets customers will. be encouraged to purchase reusable bags produced by Trashy Bags and sold at subsidized prices ..

Mr. Stuart Gold, Managing Director of Trashy Bags explains, "The durability of the bags produced from reclaimed plastic sachets ensures that they can be used over a long period. I am very excited at the idea of helping Ghana tackle this issue head on."

Indeed, 'Fight the Plastic Plague' comes as a worthy initiative

that hopes to heighten awareness that the

disturbing sights of stacks of plastic waste does not represent a hopeless case and waste can indeed be converted into wealth.

So who is the first black American President and whats his story l'

Barack Hussein Obama Jr, to give him the full name which, he has joked, meant his parents could never have imagined he might run for president, had an inauspicious start in life ..

His parents' hastily-arranged rnarriaqe lasted barely two years and during a hectic, fatherless childhood he moved from Hawaii to Indonesia and back, raised mostly by his forrnldable grandmother Madelyn Dunham, who died just two days before Mr Obama was elected president.

Mr Ohama's Muslim-born father, Barack Sr, was a womanizer and heavy drinker who had already had iii "village marriage" and two children back in Kenya when he married the 19-year-old Ann Dunham in 1961, by which tlrna she Was already pregnant with their son.

The marriage defied conve.ntionat a time when many American states refused to sanction inter-

racial relationships, but the newlywed Mrs Obama, an anthropology student, was fiercely independent and decided to drop out of university to bring up her son.

By the time young Barack was two, his parents had separated, with his father leaving Hawaii to study at Harvard and subsequently returning to Kenya. He saw his son just once more, when Barack Jr was 10, before Mr Obama's death in a car crash in 1982.

Left to bring up her son alone, Mrs Obama instilled in him a strong sense of self-worth and a belief thai, as he said in his victory speech on Tuesday night, "anything is possible".

When he was six, she married Lola Soetoro, an Indonesian student, and moved with her young son and his new half-sister Maya to Indonesi.a, where Barack, or Barry, as he was then known, attended a Muslim school, ate grasshoppers and snake meat and had a pet monkey called Tata.

Der:ember 2008 I 7

leeture

When he reached secondary school age, Mr Obama was separated from his doting mother when he won a place at the prestigious Punahou Academy in Hawaii. His mother, who died of ovarian cancer in 1995, stayed in Indonesia (where her second marriage would also break down) while Barack moved in with his materna! grandmother.

Madelyn Dunham, known as "Toot", short for "Tutu", the Hawaiian word for granny, was a practical, sl ightly austere woman 'who worked her way up to a senior position as a bank executive.

Mr Obama's grandfather Stanley - known as "Grarnps' - who served in Europe during the Second World War while his wife worked on a bomber assembly line, was a dreamer. The Dunhams had moved west from their native Kansas but many of his hopes were dashed and he ended up as a struggling salesman.

He doted on young Barry, driving he and his friends around in a battered old Ford Granada. At Punahou, the future president blossomed, developing a life-long passion for basketball and proving an able, if not particularly hard-working, student. He also developed the classically Hawaiian laid-back and even-tempered demeanour which he has to this day.

But he also dabbled in cannabis and cocaine at

school, which he later described as his greatest moral failure.

After High School Mr Obama went to Occidental University in California, where he first began to call himself Barack as he searched for his racial identity. A transfer to Columbia University took him to New York.

The watershed in Mr Obarna's life was his decision to move to Chicago in 1985 at the age of 24 to become a community organiser. In some ways it was a risky move. In others, it was a clever foundation to build forthe political career he was considering.

Serious to the point of asceticism, he began to build hts practical skills and to embed himself for the first time in a black community.

"In Chicago he had to become pragmatic to survlve," said Jerry Kellman, who hired him for the job. "His idealism was tempered by the difficulty of life in Chi.cago. He had to deal with the machine and the mentality of the area. The idealism became tempered with a lot of realism."

Mr Obama wrote in his memoir that during those years in Chica.go he "broke out of the larqer isolation" and began sharing his life with ordinary people who "gave me the sense of place and purpose I'd been looking for".

8 0 e cern ber 2008

He left his new roots in Chicago for Harvard Law School but promised to return. At Harvard, he first became something of a national figure when he was elected to be the first black editor of the Harvard Law Review, a post that won him plaudits for conciliation and moderation and landed him a book contract for his memoir "Dreams From My Father",

When he went back to Chicago to spend time at a law firm, the person given the task of being his mentor was Michelle Robinson, a fellow Harvard alumnus three years his junior who was viewed as a star in her own right.

Their marriage was to cement Mr Obama's identity as a black man and to give him a political home. His wife's family was descended from slaves and had lived through the civil rights era. The aspiring politician - he was elected to be a state senator in 1996 - began to navigate the sometimes troubled waters of racial politics with ease and grace.

"Barack relates to everyone really well," said Mr Kellman. "One of his greatest gifts is diversity. I mean he is diverse himself and he's had diverse experiences. So he's comfortable moving in different worlds. And was very comfortable moving into the largest African-American community in

the country which is the South Side of Chicago." After seven years toiling in the State Senate and a bruising loss when he tried to unseat a former Black Panther from the House of Representatives, Mr Obama decided to run for the US Senate. It was seen as an audacious move that was unlikely to succeed.

But succeed Mr Obama did. By the time he was chosen to speak at the Democratic Convention in 2004, he was already coasting to victory and destined for Washington.

By the time he stepped down from the podium, many Americans had already decided that the lean, eloquent figure they were looking at - who had travelled a long way from being the chubby little boy from Hawaii - was a future president.

In order to introduce the new range of products they have brought onto the market for the Christmas celebrations, Say Cheers and Cape Trading two of the leading wine and liquor importers in the country held a wine tasting exhibition at the Captain Hook's restaurant in Cantonments.

The exquisite decors, the immense of collection of wines of choice, was as it had never been seen before. The program was also so graciously attended by the "who is who" of our society, both expatriates and locals, The connoisseurs could not but marvel at such an exquisite collection of wine which hitherto was only found 'in the taverns of rich royalties. The secret wines of kings and queens of old are now present right here in Ghana.

The atmosphere of cordiality exhibited by managers of these two rival companies in organizing such a successful event only tells us that they are concerned about the quality of the goods they provide their patrons.

Beaujolais Nouveau is a red wi ne made from Gamay grapes produced in the Beaujolais reqion of France. It is the most popular VIN de primeur, fermented for just a few weeks thenofflclally released for sale on the third Thursday of November. Vin de primeur(nouveau wine) are a category of French wines that are permitted by Appellation d'or.igine contrcles (AOC) regulations to be sold in the same year that they are harvested.

Beaujolais Nouveau is a purple-pink wine that is particularly lightweight, even by the standards of Beaujolais. The method of production means that there is very little tannin, so the wi ne can be dominated by fruity; ester flavors of bananas and pear drops. These are enhanced by the frequent recommendation to serve the wine lightly chilled, at approximately 13"( (55"F).

The "Beaujolais Day" or "Beaujolais Nouveau Day" sees heavy marketing from the producers, with races to get the ftrst bottles of the vintage to different markets. This year's Beaujolais Nouveau's reception held at the plush Novotel Hotel was once again a true success. In spite of the heat the wine was fresh and flavor and quality of the cheese was unsurpassable,

Let's not forget the sympathetic atmosphere brought on by the invited guests and also that th is annual gathering was made possible by the support of partner, such as; SG SSB, (FAD, BOWRE SDV, TOTAl.. KiM,AlR FRANCE. BACCHUS WINE SHOP and NOVOTEL

Ghana's 08 and 2009 premier' league

sports

An exciting season appears in insight for Ghana's sixteen premiership dubs.

Preparations for the 2008/2009 Premier League campaign started long ago for some as players near full match fitness but for others it's a time to justify their si.gnings.

Kosta Papic's Accra Hearts of Oak has been one of the clubs which has been heavily involved in the preseason build up but the Phobians will have to wait to find out how formidable their team is and whether they can stand the challenge from this season favorite, Liberty Professionals and Kumasi Asante Kotoko when they open their league campaign.

The story is different in the case of their arch rivals and defending league champions. Kumasi Asante Kotoko who had little time to prepare for the new season because of their involvement in the Caf Confederations Cup and the domestic Top 4 competition.

The team will also have to do without last season's Premier League's best coach of the year Bashir Hayford who turned down an offer to become an assistant to Maurice Coleman the club's new coach.

The New season is expected to bring good tidings to last season's best performers Heart of lions, Berekum Arsenals and Uberty Professionals who have been very consistent in recruiting and producing very good players in the league.

A nervy start to this year's league will affect the unpredictable teams like Sekondi Hassacas, King Faisal, Terna Youth, RTU as well as All Blacks. Only two

points away from relegation last season, they will have to go beyon d the attitude of on Iy winn in g their home matches if they want to survive in the league. Though some of them couldn't maintain the core of the team which seems to suggest they will struggle, they can only hope that their replacement can live up to expectation.

Fans of the most resourced but very inconsistent in their premiership, .Ashanti Gold have every reason to be happy. The former chief executive officer of Kotoko Mr. Herbert Mensah is expected to change the fortunes of the club. With his experience he is sure to make a great Impact In the league if not this season then in the ones coming up.

Last season's new comer's Kessben Fe and Wa All Stars wlll continue with their agenda of maintaining a place in the league. Three new entrants Saint Mirren, Berekum Chelsea and Sekondi Eleven Wise make up the list of teams to compete in the 16-club league. Nana Agyeman Jead Sekondi Eleven Wise has brought life to Sekondi- Takoradi,

After 10 years absence from the elite league, "The Show Boys" have come in a better package with respect to their technical and managerial direction. With the vision of building a winning side and a tea m that will sta nd the test of time, the dub has acquired a fully furnished dub house and a new bus. The signing of Rahim Ayew. son of Abedi Pele, is a motivator to the dub.

EN ROUTE FOR X-MAS

All over the world Christmas is celebrated as a special day for Christians to reminisce the birth of the Savi or of mankind Christ Jesus. Dependi ng on one's country of origin, the tradition for the celebrations vary.

Normally in Ghana, the holidays start from the 20th of December to the first week in January with lots of Xmas decorations and activities. The holidays provide an opportunity for people to take time off their busy schedules to worship God, visit relatives, travel to the village and other parts of the country as well as throw parties. Every tribe has their own peculiar celebration styles which have evolved over theyears si nee the arrival of the first Portuguese ships on the coasts.

Christmas Eve, is a day often spent with friends at the beach and the night is an all-night session at a Church with services that have drumming and dancing. Children often put on a Nativity Play or other drama. Some institutions like schools and churches organise Festivals of Carols and this keeps them entertained all night long. Christmas Eve is a ni ght of si nging, dancing, parties and fireworks. On Christmas day is a family's day out, after the Church service on Christmas morning, people quicklyqo back to their houses to start giving and receiving gifts.

There are children's parties, em p I.oyees , end of year parties and lots of entertain ment events at the National Theatre,

32 I De-cember 2008

International Conference Centre, the Beaches, School Parks and Community Centers with "afinhyiapa" wishes to everyone. lhe31st. December is another beach day but a great majority of the people go church in the evening to ask for Gods guidance inthe coming year. The service is often a countdown to the New Year with loved ones hugging, kissing and exchanging Seasons Greetings.

In France, the main Christmas meal, called Reveillon, is eaten after everyone has returned from the midnight Church Service on Christmas Eve. A chocolate log (called a buche de Noel) is eaten for dessert.

Some regions in France have a tradition of 13 different desserts to be eaten! All the desserts are made from different types of Fruit, Nuts and Pastries. The Christmas menu in France is incornplete without the foie qras, chapon (a roasted castrated cock fed on natural diet over a period). The chapon is one of the most expensive meats served on Christmas.

The French are known to have some of the best cuisines in the world and Noel (Christmas) is the time When these are expressed in all theirforms. If you heve a French friend, visit them at Christmas you are always assured of some good food.

Rhapon

In Spain Christmas Eve service is called the Midnight Mass or 'La Misa Del Gallo' (The Mass of the Rooster). It is called so because it is their belief that a rooster is supposed to have crowed the night that Jesus was born.

Most families eat their main Christmas meal on Christmas Eve before the service. The traditional Spanish Christmas dinner is 'Pavo Trufado de Navidad' which is Turkey stuffed with truffles (the mushrooms not the chocolate ones!) In Galicia (a region in north-west Spain, surrounded by water) the most popular meal for Christmas is all kinds of different seafood, from shellfish and mollusk, to lobster and small edible crabs.

After the midnight service, people walk through the streets carrying torches, playing guitars and beating on tambourines and drums. One Spanish saying is 'Esta neche es Noche-Buena, Y no Es noche de dormir' which means 'Tonight is the good night and it is not meant for sleeping!' In Spanish Merry Christmas is 'Feliz Navidad~

In Ethiopia Christmas is celebrated on January 7 in accordance with the Coptic calendar,

One thing is clear depending on where you come from, the seasons dishes vary. It is clear that the essence of Christmas day all over the world is that good food. In Ghana, a big bowl of Fufu and soup is never missing in any home.

In the days of old, Fried rice, Jollof and Chicken was only eaten during Christmas and about four kids had to share one soda bottie. I was 50 fond of Christmas as a kid because I got to show off my new shoes, attire and my toys from "fada krismas"

Hmmm, I can feel the adrenaline rising and surely Christmas 2008 will be entertaining,

Feliz Navidad, Joyeux Noel, fe yeye na ml, afi a af and Afihyia pa to you all.

Enjoy.

As we draw closer to Christmas, residents of Sekondi Takoradi like others living on any part of the globe are keenly shopping towards the yuletide. For the people living within Ghana's only twin city Christmas shopping is almost always an exciting experience. This excitement stems from the fact that unlike Kumasi or Accra, where shopping for a merely a trolley full of groceries can be torturous, with tortoise speed, nose to tail traffic, compounded by the overcrowding conditions of most of the shopping malls.

There are a lot of popular shops in the twin city, which have on sale a wide variety of product ranging from toiletries, to food. The most interesting thinq about shopping in Takoradi is the fact that all the major shopping malls and shops are doted around the Takoradi Market circle. My Home Super Market, All Needs, U 84, Lucky bazaar, 1 st Samuel, are some of the notable shops in the city.

For most of T'ardi residents when they thin k of shopping for any thing for the this season's celebration the only place worth going fOT this kind of shopping is to get closer to the city's biggest roundabout with the market sitting right in the middle; the Market Circle. The brisk nature of the shopping that is going on around this time of the year is so intense that one wonders whether small shops in communities like Effiakuma, Kwasimintim and Chapel Hill record any sales at all.

Speaking to some shop owners about the feel of

Takoradi

*x·

mass

Shopping in the twin city*

shopping within the city, they tell me the volume of sale is not comparable to the sales shop owners in Accra or Kumasi could be making but most of them are satisfied with the rate of sales looking at the population of the area. Within most of these shops, especially My Home, which is the biggest and most patronized shopping mall in the city the shopping experience, is made even more interesting by pleasant-sounding Christmas songs that fill the mall.

For the shoppers especially the women, they say shopping is not just fun, it's an endeavor they would like to repeat so long as they have a few cedis to spend.

X' mass will be fun in T'di.

THE FAT FINDINGS

Fat has become Diet Enemy Number one, blamed for all sorts of evils form increasing you risk of heart disease and concern to packing on extra pounds. The effort to cut back on dietary fat has given rise to a feed frenzy of astonishing proportions. What many consumers don't realize, however, is that many of these product contain the same amount of, if not more calories than their full-fat counterparts.

There's no question that consuming too much fat is harmful or that fat contains double the calories found in an equal amount of carbohydrates or protein but some dietary fat is actually needed by the body. Dietary fat performs a variety of crucial functions in the body, including making hormones, aiding, digestion and promoting the absorption of the fat soluble vitamins A, 0, E and K plus, fats make eating more pleasurable by adding flavour and texture to foods.

While the total amount of fat you consume is important, the type of fat you consume is also a critical issue. The "good" fats, such as monounsaturated fats. found in olive or canola oils, reduce artery clogging LDL cholesterol Without affecting HDL (the "good) cholesterol. The worst fats are the saturated variety, found in meats and dairy foods, and Trans unsaturated fats (a.k.a. Trans fatty adds), which are found in margarines and baked goods, both of which increase the risk of heart disease. In additions. polyunsaturated fats found in seafood and corn oil appear to decrease heart disease risk, but some evidence suggests that the type in corn oil may be linked with an increase breast cancer risk.

Most reputable health associations now recorn-

fitness

mend that you restrict your fat intake to less than 30 percent of your total calories. What's more, less than 10 percent of the day's ca lori es shou Id come from saturated fat, less than 10 percent from polyunsaturated fats, and up to 15 percent of total calories can be derived from monounsaturated fats in your diet is easier, now that packaged foods have labels that contain specific nutritional information, including the fat and saturated fat content. If you get in the habit of reading labels and checking a fat-gram chart for commonly eaten food, the job of eating healthy becomes much easier.

Christmas is approaching, be mindful of your pastries, iced creams, dairy products and high caloriecarbohydrate foods. Always remember to "Train Smart" and "Eat Right"

Wishing all my readers Merry Cnristmas and a healthy New Year

Almost everyone experiences a headache at one time or another. With some people, headaches, often referred to as migraines, are at times accompanied by nausea, visual disturbances and other symptoms.

Any num ber of factors can trigger a headacheincluding allergies, constipation, stress, sleep disorders, lack of exercise, poor nutrition, the overuse of painkillers, emotional changes and hormone changes.

Low blood sugar is often associated with headaches as studies have shown that the lower the blood sugar level, the more severe the headache. This is why people often get headaches as a result of not eating after along period oftime.

The trend for this season is HAIR COLOR!!!

Hair color offers an instant transformation to one's look. It also adds volume to thin hair. Again, when done properly, can add shine to dull hair. The season's trend is to have your hair properly trimmed to shape or have it cut fashionably and then add colors to enhance the cut. Remember hair color comes out well when hair is in good condition.

Prior to having color in your hair, deoide on the level of commitment you can give to this change. Remember, temporary colors wash out after a shampoo or two, semi permanent colors may last up to 8 weeks wh ile perma nent colors stays on ti II hai r is cut. (One has the option of changi ng the color though) The fact is that, the perma nent colors gives better resu It, has. a wider range of shades to choose from and the cha nges on the hai r after the use of permanent color are very obvious.

Few facts before coloring ...

Shampoo and deep condition your hair. Then wait a couple of days before coloring. This will help color to set/deposit better and give you a harmonized result .

Apply color during day time and close to natural day light possibly by a window. This will allow you to see the color in it true shade while it is processing. Applying color

Do not apply permanent colors same day as you apply chemical relaxers. Wait 2 weeks between a ny one of these services.

Few facts to keep colored treated hair healthy ....

Maintain color treated hair with shampoos made for color treated hair. You may have to get Optimum Care Stay Strong shampoo from SoftSheen Carson. This does not strip color and will keep your hair soft and natural looking.

Also, deep conditioning is essential. Deep condition regularly with Optimum Care Stay Strong Conditioner also from SoftSheen Carson.

Finally, stay out of the pool waters and the sea waters. If you have to ... cover your hair or rinse immediately after the dive in anyone of the two waters.
