Charly Boy- Parents from Hell

I never really got along with my father till about 27yrs ago. Before then, nothing I did was ever good enough for my father. Since childhood I resented him, I saw my father as a bully, as an overbearing, insensitive, unloving, harsh and wicked man. All my siblings at the time wanted to please him except me. It was like my father was from Hell; he whipped me so many times that I became immune to the pain of his cane. I was very close to my mum and would rather not have anything to do with my father at all. My father had been a Principal before he became a lawyer/ Judge. He loved literature so he constantly made me memorize all Shakespeare’s play, way before I even went to secondary school. Can you beat that? God help me when I didn’t get my lines right, he would whip my behind as if he was taking his frustrations out on me. It was not a surprise that I hated school, my dad unknowingly made learning very scary. By the time I became a teenager in secondary school, my resentment for my father grew big time. It was all about how he wanted things to run in our house, our house was like a court room, he was the Judge, the Jury and the Prosecutor. His rules were final. No wonder I rebelled all my

Breakthrough? Scientist grow minniature human brain in lab

Miniature "human brains" have been grown in a lab in a feat scientists hope will transform the understanding of neurological disorders.

The pea-sized structures reached the same level of development as in a nine-week-old foetus, but are incapable of thought.

The study, published in the journal Nature, has already been used to gain insight into rare diseases.

Neuroscientists have described the findings as astounding and fascinating.

The human brain is one of the most complicated structures in the universe.

Scientists at Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences have now reproduced some of the earliest stages of the organ's development in the laboratory.

Ancient S*x Secrets.. so much of Our Lifestyle has changed..must Read

In fact, more than 40 million Americans in relationships aren’t having sex at all.  Jill Blakeway, the clinical director of the YinOva Center in New York City and author of “Sex Again: Recharging Your Libido,” spoke with Fox News Health about why people should look to some ancient wisdom to fix this problem.      “We live in the most sexualized society there has ever been,” Blakeway said. “You can’t turn on the Internet or go to a movie without seeing very graphic sexual images in some ways. It’s right out there, and yet Americans are having less sex than ever before and less sex than people in other countries.”  Blakeway believes that this pervasive amount of sexual imagery is actually the reason couples are having less sex.  According to her, it directs people’s sexual energy outwards instead of inwards, to their primary relationships, preventing them from creating strong

Arsenal targets Benzema and Di Maria

Arsenal are working on deals to sign Real Madrid attacking pair Karim Benzema and Angel Di Maria. The Gunners are prepared to pay £40m for 25-year-old France striker Benzema after missing out on Gonzalo Higuain and Liverpool's Luis Suarez.

Who will be $300,000 richer in Big Brother?

I thought the organizers of Big Brother Africa would be easy on their own contestant, but I was shocked last Sunday when South Africa’s Angelo was kicked out.  Now we are left with Nigeria’s Beverley and Melvin, Ghana’s Elikem, Namibia’s Dilish and Zambia’s Cleo.  Truth is, it could be anyone’s money at this point. Anyone but Beverley. Nigeria favours Melvin over her. My money would be on Dilish, though.  Angelo became the 22nd housemate to be evicted, bringing an end to the final couple in the House - Bengelo. The 91-day reality show on DStv ends this Sunday. It has been an unpredictable season with some of the promising characters and entertaining personalities crashing out of the game before they could say BBA.  Clearly at this point, in line with the show’s unpredictability this year, whoever wins on Sunday will be no shock. Africa seems to be rooting for Elikem or Dillish, though.
