The Art of Beautiful, Natural Hair

first_imgNatural and healthy – the perfect formula for a balanced way of life.Taji was recently in Liberia visiting her parents. She expressed delight at seeing so many natural hair enthusiasts and specialists. She, herself, is committed to promoting natural hair health and awareness. Taji provides men, women, and children with the tools to help them acquire and maintain healthy, natural hair – for life.“Our scalp is a part of our body’s skin system. And just as the earth’s topsoil covers and protects the earth, so does our skin, including our scalp, cover and protect our bodies from head to toe. Our hair is like the plants that grow best in the rich, black topsoil of our garden. And so our scalp must be nourished and cared for like our garden soil to produce beautiful hair.“We would never use a bulldozer to clean our garden. And we should never use harsh soaps like laundry soap to wash our hair.” We must make sure harmful chemicals never touch our precious ‘garden’ of hair. The natural oil crops we have right here in Liberia like coconut and palm kernel oil (“kanna” oil) are nourishing for our hair unlike the chemically produced pomades and greases. Natural oils absorb into the hair shaft instead of coating and clogging the hair strands.”We’ve all seen women whose natural hairlines are receding backwards leaving baldness where hair used to be. This hair loss is from tight plaiting and tight extensions or chemical straightening (relaxing). Synthetic (plastic) hair, and any style that prolongs tension and weight on the hair root also causes hair loss and balding.A gorgeous head of hair is a beautiful sight to behold and we can achieve it while prolonging the life of our hair by keeping it healthy.

Suncor suspends development in Montney Shale

first_imgIt reports, the Calgary-based company has also ruled out liquefied natural gas as a potential moneymaker for the assets.It is seen as yet another sign of weak North American markets for the fuel, despite the recent, eastern weather driven bump, in natural gas prices and it comes with major energy companies under pressure to focus spending and boost returns as rising costs threaten to squeeze margins.Suncor has reportedly pulled the plug on early-stage delineation work in the Montney zone straddling the B.C.-Alberta border.- Advertisement -Estimated to hold 271 trillion cubic feet of gas just on this side of the border, what the Post describes, as the gas rich rock area, has been the subject of earlier industry predictions, suggesting it will anchor billions of dollars of new development in the coming decades.The paper says that Suncor has made this move after assessing prospects for the play including potential partnerships tied to export terminals planned for the West Coast.For B.C., the Post reports,  the decision underscores the degree, to which future prospects in the Montney, hinge, on tapping  the fast- growing, Asian Pacific markets.Advertisementlast_img read more

Video: Manchester United reject back to his best?

first_img Shinji Kagawa celebrates with his team-mates 1 Shinji Kagawa didn’t have the best of times with Manchester United but there are signs he is now getting back to his best with Borussia Dortmund.The Bundesliga side, who had been having a terrible season until recent weeks, bought back the Japanese international for £6.3million in the summer having sold him to the Red Devils for an initial £12million in 2012.It’s taken a while for Kagawa to show anything like the form he showed during his first spell at the Westfalenstadion but his two assists in Dortmund’s 3-2 victory over Stuttgart on Friday night will please manager Jurgen Klopp.His first, a short pass, allowed pacy Gabonese star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to slot home and his second, a cunning back-heel, allowed Ilkay Gundogan to get himself on the scoresheet as they moved up to tenth in the league.You can see the assists and the highlights of the five-goal clash in the video below…VfB Stuttgart 2 – 3 Borussia Dortmund All Goals… by ViralDailyTVlast_img read more

Area land values continue to hold steady

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Farm land values in the region encompassing Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee continue to hold steady, despite a challenging ag economy.“In the 12-month time period between July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016, the four-state region saw a collective average value increase of 0.18 percent,” said Dennis Badger, Vice President of Collateral Risk Management, Farm Credit Mid-America. “A gentle downward trend since the last reporting period of July 2014 to June 2015 was expected as the land value hikes from 2010 through 2012 continue to force market corrections and we believe our region continues to hold steady due to the diversity of the operations within the region.”These results affirm land values are starting to decline in response to lower commodity prices, but at a pace that is supportive of a soft landing in our markets. While Indiana experienced a decline in farm land values of approximately 6 percent, the overall average rate of change in our four-state territory experienced a minimal change of 0.2 percent, which is good news for the area.What can farmers do now that we have a clearer picture of the land values situation in our area?“Since land values are expected to decrease slightly in the next year but interest rates are expected to rise, now is the time negotiate cash rent or make an investment,” Badger said. “A good rule of thumb during an economic downturn is that if the investment looks solid despite current conditions, it will probably be a good long-term move.Quality land generally holds its value better than marginal land and tracts improved with irrigation and drainage systems appear are desirable features to most purchasers. Overall, farmers should be cautious but still consider and weigh opportunities as they come up.AUDIO: The Ohio Ag Net’s Ty Higgins visits with Badger about the current state of land values.Farm Credit Mid America Full Interview Dennis Badger 10.03.16For more financial tips, insights and perspectives from Farm Credit Mid-America visit e-farmcredit.com.last_img read more
