Stellar Merge Mailbox for Outlook Product Review

Published

on

Managing multiple Personal Storage Folder (PST) files can be difficult when you have multiple user accounts in Outlook. Besides, you may have duplicate mail items in the PST files. Merging multiple PST files into a single PST can overcome Outlook performance and other issues you may experience while managing several PSTs. However, manually combining multiple PST files into one file requires time and effort. Also, the manual process may lead to data inconsistency errors. A better alternative is to use a specialized merge PST files software.

In this post, we will review Stellar Merge Mailbox for Outlook software on different parameters, such as features/functionalities, ease-of-use, speed & performance, and compatibility.

No Ghanaian Woman Should Die from Cervical Cancer: Know Your Risk

Published

on

Historically, cervical cancer plagued women for a long time. A breakthrough came in  the mid-20th century when screening measures started being implemented.

The healthcare industry was hopeful that screening would drastically reduce cervical cancer incidence globally. Unfortunately, the disease is still prevalent worldwide, with sub-Saharan Africa bearing the burden of the disease. In Ghana, cervical cancer is the second most frequent cancer seen in women. Every year 2797 women in Ghana are diagnosed with cervical cancer and 1699 die from the disease.

In many cervical cancer cases, there are no early stage signs and symptoms. The cancer develops in the cells lining awoman’s cervix (the entrance to the uterus from the vagina) and is almost always linked to infection with high-risk Human Papillomavirus (HPV) – an extremely common virus transmitted through sexual contact.

 

Advanced-stage cervical cancer may have  like vaginal bleeding and unusual discharge, women often dismiss them as normal menstrual cycle-related events, or self-diagnose as another infection.

Women are recommended to always look out for bleeding during or after sex, or in between menstrual periods, pain during or after sex, changes in vaginal discharge, or pain in lower back or pelvis. These may be signs of more advanced-stage cervical cancer. It is important to note that having these symptoms does not necessarily mean you have cervical cancer;  you should however get them checked out by your doctor.The good news is that cervical cancerdoes not have to advance to this late stage. It can be detected early through regular screening, and successfully treated.

 

Screening for cervical cancer involves a pap smear or an HPV test, or both. A pap smear, also known as a pap test checks for the presence of pre-cancerous cervical cells. An HPV test checks for infection with certain high-risk variants of the human papillomavirus, which cause cervical cells to become pre-cancerous and develop into cervical cancer. If an HPV test determines that a woman is at high risk for cervical cancer, additional screening, like a pap smear, and a colposcopy ( visual examination of cervix) are recommended. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that women 26 years and above should get screened for high-risk HPV at least once every 5 years.

 

Thanks to Yemaachi Biotech, an African cancer research company based in Ghana, there is an affordable, accessible and easy-to-use test that will detail women’s level of risk for HPV-mediated cervical cancer. The Sheba HPV Testenables women to collect their own samples discretely at home, and drop them off at a conveniently located collection point for HPV testing at Yemaachi’s advanced molecular diagnostic laboratory. Detailed results are returned via email within 72 hours of drop-off.

Women are recommended to share their HPV test results with their physicians or other healthcare workers, especially in the event that a high-risk variant is detected, for further guidance on further testing or treatment.

When diagnosed early, cervical cancer is one of the most successfully treatable forms of cancer. Early detection saves lives.

Ghanaians and resident foreigners no longer require full COVID-19 vaccination before entering the country

Published

on

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has announced some changes to the guidelines for Ghanaians entering the country through the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).

Per the earlier modification implemented during the yuletide last year, persons aged 18 years and above, arriving in Ghana from December 12, 2021, were to provide proof of full vaccination.

But addressing pressmen on Wednesday, Director-General of GHS, Dr. Patrick Kumah-Aboagye explained that the directive has been reviewed to make it more lenient.

Now, unvaccinated or partially vaccinated Ghanaians and resident foreigners have been “exempted from the requirement of full vaccination before traveling to Ghana.”

He made this comment at the Ministry of Information where the press conference was held.

GHS revises Covid-19 travel guidelines for Ghanaian travelers at KIA
Dr. Kumah-Aboagye explained that persons who will be affected by the review are expected to take the vaccination on arrival at KIA.

In this regard, persons who refuse to accept the jab will be forced to go on mandatory 7-day quarantine at their own cost.

This, according to the GHS Director-General, forms part of measures to reduce the effects of the fourth wave of the pandemic in the country.

George Boateng: Ghanaian Computer Scientist Launches Smartphone-Based Coding App, ‘SuaCode’

Published

on

In ensuring that learning how to code becomes much easier and fun, George Jojo Boateng, a Ghanaian computer scientist and social entrepreneur created SuaCode, a smartphone-based coding app. The app was launched on Google Play Store in January 2022, and has had some great reviews so far.

Boateng started SuaCode in 2017 as a graduate student at Dartmouth College, during Project iSWEST, an annual innovation bootcamp for high school students in Ghana organised by his education non-profit Nsesa Foundation. From 2018 to 2020, with four pilots, SuaCode had over 3,000 applicants from 69 countries, accepted over 1,000 students, with a 62% completion rate and alumni getting internships, jobs and studying computer science and engineering in top universities, including, Yale, Columbia, Dartmouth, and MIT.

In 2021, Boateng and cofounder Victor Kumbol improved on the idea and launched the startup, SuaCode.ai to transform SuaCode into a smartphone app, with the aim of teaching millions across Africa to code using smartphones and an AI teaching assistant, Kwame.

The SuaCode app enables users to learn how to code on their phone at anyplace, at anytime in a community of learners across the globe. Through Kwame, a bilingual AI Teaching assistant that Boateng built, the app presents lessons in English and French along with fun and hands-on coding exercises, quizzes and assignments. It also provides quick and accurate answers to students’ coding questions.

The app’s Automated Grading Software, AutoGrad, grades users’ assignments while checking for plagiarism and providing individualized feedback; and users receive a certificate of completion when they complete courses.

For his work on SuaCode.ai, George Boateng has been recognized by the MIT Technology Review as a Pioneer in the 2021 list of 35 Innovators under 35.

Currently pursuing his PhD in Applied Machine Learning at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, Boateng is also the President and co-founder of Nsesa Foundation, which aims at achieving the vision of creating an “Innovation Revolution” in Ghana. He was also, recently, appointed as a Visiting Researcher at the University of Cambridge’s Computer Science department, where he will be exploring collaborations on AI-powered mobile heath research.

Dating in Nairobi laid bare as Single Kiasi (Singleish) premieres, also available in 33 countries in the diaspora

Published

on

Single Kiasi (Singleish), the new Kenyan Showmax Original, is now streaming, with new episodes releasing every Thursday. The show will also be available to Kenyans in the UK, France and 31 other countries in the diaspora.

What does the pursuit for the one look like for 30-something women in Nairobi?

Sintamei (Gathoni Mutua) is trying to start a family with her loving husband Kevin (Lucarelli Onyango) while also building her career as a corporate lawyer.

Rebecca (Faith Kibathi) is all about motherhood, being a housewife and staying loyal to her “husband” Eric (Michael Munyoki), even though he doesn’t have a shilling to his name.

And Mariah (Minne Kariuki) is all about expensive gifts and traveling to the best destinations her rich sponsor’s money can buy, while chasing the next social media high and sharing slay queen dating tips with her many followers. “Paris was amazing. If your guy takes you to Dubai, please dump him,” she tells her fans while on a private jet from her vacation in France.

When we catch up with them in the first episode of Single Kiasi, they seem to have their lives and their romantic relationships under control. But dating in Nairobi can be hectic, and it doesn’t take long before the men of Single Kiasi prove the popular saying in the city’s dating scene: “Men will embarrass you unprovoked,” as reiterated by Mariah.

In the course of the 13 episodes, Single Kiasi follows Sintamei, Rebecca and Mariah as they go through the ups and downs of love and dating in Nairobi while also reminding us that, at the end of the day, friendship is the most powerful relationship they can have.

Single Kiasi is the second Showmax Original series in Kenya after the Kalasha-winning Crime and Justice.

The show is adapted from the popular South African series Unmarried, which already has successful adaptations in Nigeria (Unmarried Nigeria) and Ghana (To Have and To Have Hold).

“It’s a universal story of womanhood, love and friendship,” says producer and director Grace Kahaki. “But we had to make some changes here and there for the story to fit to who we are as Kenyans.”

For instance, Single Kiasi incorporates a Kikuyu traditional marriage ceremony (nguracio) in place of a church wedding.

“In the South African version, one of the leading women has an affair with a security guard but we felt that this wasn’t authentic to the Kenyan setting so changed the guard to an intern, which is more reflective of what happens here,” Kahaki says.

Single Kiasi tackles important issues that Kenyan women go through, such as sexism in the workplace like when Sintamei is passed over for a promotion that she clearly deserves, sexual assault like in the case of Mariah who is forced to confront a past she’d rather forget, and women (and mothers) finding their own identities outside of what society expects of them like Rebecca getting to relive her youth which she missed out on by marrying too young.

“This show aims to look at women through our three main characters and allow them to choose what label they want to attach to themselves, be it single, married, wife, career woman, mother, etc,” Kahaki says.

Kahaki co-produced and co-directed Single Kiasi alongside her Insignia Productions counterpart Philippe Bresson, and Robby Bresson (Simiyu Samurai).

 

Catch episode 1 of Single Kiasi, now streaming on Showmax, with new episodes releasing every Thursday.
