A call has been made to the government and other stakeholders to as a matter of urgency, prioritize the Development of Arts in the country since the area is a crucial point for accelerating development.

Professor Victor Yankah of the Film and Theatre studies at the University of Cape Coast [UCC], made the call at a roundtable organized by the Sustainable Development Goals Graduate school.

A Memorandum of Understanding [MOU] has been signed between three [3] universities to help collaborate peacefully to partly exchange students from these institutions to enable them invite academic staffs for a certain period of time.

The institutions namely the University of Hildesheim, Germany, University of Maiduguri, Nigeria and the University of Cape Coast, Ghana have initiated a research training group to help train graduate students particularly PHD and Masters students on centers around the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The School of Educational Development & Outreach, Center for Teaching Support of the University of Cape Coast [UCC] is set to hold a seminar on Thursday April 27, 2017.

The seminar themed "Decolonizing mind and action, improving teaching and impact in higher education: reflections in Ghana", is expected to draw a large number of people from the academia to the School of Medical Sciences Auditorium where the event is scheduled to take place.

The Vice Dean of the Faculty of Arts, University of Cape Coast Professor Peter Kojo Grant, has indicated that the President’s promise to make Accra the neatest city in Africa cannot be possible in the first term of his administration.

He is of the view that the current state and peculiar problems of Accra would make it very difficult for the president to fulfill his promise in his first term of office.

I first met Oluwatosin “Mr Eazi” Ajibade in Lagos, on one of those days around Christmas when the IJGBs (“I Just Got Backs” — local slang that pokes fun at visiting Nigerians) descend from all corners of the Diaspora to partake in festive debauchery.

Parties raged everywhere, club nights packed out, and music award shows one-upped each other, all boasting the region’s biggest, best, and newest. Tall and lean-framed, Mr Eazi was front and center, just like he’d been all year on the Nigerian charts and radio.

Singlehood allows us the freedom to grow and stand upright.

A common misconception is that single people are single by default through a lack of options and opportunities to be with someone else. Another popular assumption is that singlehood is a lifestyle bereft of joy, peace, comfort, fulfillment, and companionship.

Hello everyone, it’s been a while and I hope you all have been putting your best faces forward with good skin care practices.

Let’s restart our sessions by reminding ourselves habits you should consider in order to maintain good skin.

When you work hard every single day and there’s only so much money left after your regular expenses, you have to make certain it’s well spent. Spend your limited funds on what science says will make you happy.

Fascinating!

Pecking, smooching, French kissing, and playing tonsil-hockey — there are as many names for kissing as there are ways to do it. Whether we use it as an informal greeting or an intensely romantic gesture, kissing is one of those ingrained human behaviors that seems to defy explanation.

In the day to day of our relationships, a lot of stuff can get swept under the rug. Combine that with the fact that a lot of partners don’t really get to know each other on a deep level at the beginning of their relationships (or at any point) and you could be highly prone to emotionally stepping on your partner’s toes without knowing it.

I recommend asking some of the following questions once every few months, and others on a weekly basis.

As a therapist and life transition coach, I’ve worked with many couples struggling with relationship issues. Most often, the issues revolve around ineffective communication, mistrust, the need for power and control, and the quest to be right.

In order to have a loving and thriving relationship, a couple needs to have a good energy flow and synergy. But it can be hard for people to know where to start when creating this type of relationship. But the 5 C's can help when used as a guide.

The Ashanti Regional Youth Organiser of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Yaw Brogya Genfi, has petitioned the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), in his capacity as a citizen of Ghana, to investigate the recent $2.25 billion bond issued by the government of Ghana.

Mr Genfi’s petition follows assertions by the Minority in Parliament that Mr Trevor G. Trefgarne, a director at Franklin Templeton, the institution that bought 95 per cent of the bond, is also a Director at Enterprise Group Limited, a company which Ghana’s Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta is co-founder, thus, raising issues of transparency, conflict of interest, and suspicion.

The Trump administration in America is set to deport seven thousand Ghanaians who have abused the terms of their Visas.

The Ghanaians are currently at different stages of the deportation process, the US ambassador to Ghana Robert Jackson has revealed.

Former President John Dramani Mahama has rubbished rumours that he is working to “scuttle the government’s free secondary education policy.”

Speculations are rife that the immediate past president is scheming with officials of the Ghana Education Service and the Bureau of National Investigations “and some faceless South Africans to make it impossible” for the NPP’s popular Free Education policy to kick off.

“How is it possible, for a person who does not control government’s kitty to make it impossible for the government to implement its policy initiative?

“It is obviously evident, as previously noted by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Minority in Parliament, that government has no plans and has outlined none on how it is going to fulfil the many promises it made to the people of Ghana,” Mahama’s special aide Joyce Bawa Mogtari said in a statement.

Irate supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Mpohor District of the Western region have issued a stern warning to President Akufo-Addo to appoint no other person than their former constituency chairman George Bernard Eshun as District Chief Executive (DCE) for the area.

The supporters who were clad in red armbands said information available to them suggest that President Akufo-Addo has settled on another aspirant by name Assah Mensah.
