As The Mary Sue says, “The whip-smart comedy is one of the best new sitcoms on network television… During the pandemic, many viewers have been returning to their favourite comfort shows like The Office and Friends. Grand Crew is a welcome new entry into the genre, and is hopefully on its way to becoming a new classic. So sit back, grab a glass of wine, and meet your new friends.”

PEN15’s second – and final – season brings us eight new episodes to close out the gloriously weird and uncomfortably honest story of 13-year-old besties Maya and Anna, living through the horrors and highs of teenhood in the year 2000. Thirty-something creators Anna Konkle and Maya Erskine return as the puberty-stricken versions of themselves, surrounded by actual 13-year-olds.

 

PEN15 was nominated for three Emmys last year, including Outstanding Comedy Series, and Season 2 holds a 100% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s also been nominated for Critics’ Choice and Writers Guild of America awards, among other honours.

BRAVE NEW WORLD | Binge now

 

Based on Aldous Huxley’s classic 1932 novel, Brave New World imagines a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself.

Brave New World won Royal Television Society Awards for its costumes and visual effects, but be warned: unlike the book, the series isn’t going to make it into any high school syllabus. Brave New World carries an 18SN age restriction, with The Guardian suggesting that it should have been renamed Brave Nude World and adding, “Not since Game of Thrones have I seen so many nude scenes so happily, lavishly and gratuitously staged for our viewing pleasure.”

Telecel Ghana CEO Calls for Multilateral Collaboration and Investment in Digital Public Infrastructure

Published

on

Chief Executive of Telecel Ghana Ing. Patricia Obo Nai

Chief Executive of Telecel Ghana, Ing. Patricia Obo-Nai has made a clarion call for stronger multilateral partnerships and cooperation between industry, government, and investors to accelerate the growth of digital public infrastructure in Africa. 

Delivering the keynote remarks on ‘Digital Infrastructure and Innovation: Accelerating Africa’s Development’ at the Mobile Technology for Development (MT4D) session of the 3i Africa Summit on Wednesday, Ing. Obo-Nai outlined a roadmap for leveraging technology to fast-track digital infrastructure, innovation and literacy across the continent.

My first call on the topic is for cooperation and partnership between governments, industry, domestic direct investors and foreign direct investors to work together on increasing digital public infrastructure if we are serious about it. Let’s not just discuss, let’s implement” Obo-Nai said.

Ing. Obo-Nai highlighted three key areas that require attention to expedite the integration of technology into public service to benefit every community – infrastructure, innovation, and digital literacy.

Hosted by the Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications under the auspices of the 3i Africa Summit, the MT4D sessions also hosted multiple panel discussions with experts from the field of technology, innovation and public information, who shared insights and solutions on expanding digital public infrastructure for inclusive development.

Future-proof infrastructure

Citing a report on the state of mobile internet connectivity in sub-Saharan Africa that showed that15% of people on the continent remain without network coverage, and 59% have coverage but are not connected, Ing. Obo-Nai advocated for expansion of safe, resilient and high-quality communication.

 As a service provider, Telecel, we believe in investing in network infrastructure and will continue to do so. However, we also believe in participating in infrastructure sharing and co-investment programmes to close the gap,” she said. “This will ensure the much-needed progress towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal 9 to provide universal and affordable access to the internet across Africa.

Innovation powers progress

Quoting the e-Conomy Africa report which revealed that Africa’s digital economy is one of the largest overlooked investment opportunities with a potential to add US$180 billion to Africa’s GDP by 2025, Ing. Obo-Nai urged stakeholders to invest in Africa’s innovative capacity and prioritise invention in schools and industry.

Innovation is the fuel that powers progress and drives change. We must be more deliberate and invest in tapping into the innovative capacity of our talents and prioritise innovation in schools and industry to drive development at scale.”

Ripple effect of digital literacy

Making the case for the scaling up and adoption of digital literacy programmes in schools to equip African youth with skills for the digital economy, Ing. Obo-Nai said, “If we have the infrastructure and sort out all the innovative solutions, will we have an African population ready to take advantage of it and accelerate our development?”

With Africa’s working-age population projected to increase to approximately 450 million individuals from by 2035, Ing. Obo-Nai believes expanding internet accessibility holds the potential to generate millions of job opportunities and upskill young people for tech opportunities in the digital landscape.

Governments and businesses must invest in digital literacy programmes to equip African youth with the skills needed to thrive in the digital economy, from coding to digital marketing to cybersecurity and data analytics. Instil digital technology knowledge in our young people right from primary school and build their exposure.”

Crack the code.

In concluding the keynote address, Ing. Obo-Nai advised stakeholders to go beyond the dialogues and implement the shared solutions to ensure the acceleration of Africa’s development through digital public infrastructure.

“Together, we must crack the code to realise the full potential of Africa’s digital revolution and development.”

Custom Tote Bags: A Trendy and Sustainable Choice in Fashion and Marketing

Published

on

Eco Friendly Cabinetry 1

In a world increasingly attentive to sustainability and personal style, custom tote bags have emerged as a popular and versatile accessory. Whether used for grocery shopping, as a stylish day bag, or a promotional item, these bags combine functionality with a strong fashion statement. This article explores the significance of custom tote bags in contemporary culture, their benefits, and the impact they have on both personal use and as marketing tools.

1. The Rise of Tote Bags

Historical Background

Tote bags were originally used to carry ice from cars to freezers in the mid-20th century. Their simple, sturdy design has since evolved into a fashion statement and a banner for personal expression and environmental consciousness. Today, tote bags are made from a variety of materials, including traditional canvas, recycled plastics, and organic fabrics, reflecting a growing concern for sustainable practices in fashion.

Popularity in Modern Fashion

As fashion increasingly leans towards practicality, tote bags have become a staple accessory. They are celebrated not only for their eco-friendly appeal but also for their versatility and capacity, which make them ideal for a range of activities from shopping to traveling.

2. Benefits of Custom Tote Bags

Environmental Impact

One of the most significant benefits of tote bags is their reusability. Unlike disposable bags, which contribute to landfill waste and pollution, tote bags can be used repeatedly, drastically reducing the need for single-use plastics. They are a practical component of a sustainable lifestyle, encouraging consumers to make eco-friendly choices.

Marketing Advantage

For businesses, custom tote bags serve as an effective marketing tool. They are a practical item that consumers are likely to use regularly, ensuring repeated exposure for the brand. Customizing these bags with a company’s logo or slogan turns an ordinary item into a mobile advertisement, enhancing brand visibility and consumer engagement.

Versatility and Convenience

Custom tote bags are not only eco-friendly and stylish but also highly versatile. They can be designed to suit various needs, from grocery shopping to serving as a daily carryall. Their spacious design and durability make them suitable for nearly any occasion or purpose.

3. Customizing Your Tote Bag

Design Options

Customization allows individuals and businesses to create tote bags that reflect their style or brand identity. Options can include various colors, graphics, and text. Adding unique designs or messages can transform a simple tote into a statement piece or a personalized gift.

Material Choices

Choosing the right material is crucial for both aesthetics and functionality. Common materials for tote bags include:

  • Canvas: Durable and sturdy, ideal for everyday use.
  • Cotton: Soft, lightweight, and often organic, perfect for casual use.
  • Polypropylene: A recyclable plastic option that’s sturdy and water-resistant, suitable for heavy groceries.

Size and Function

The size of the tote bag should be tailored to its intended use. Smaller bags are great for everyday essentials, while larger ones are perfect for shopping or as beach bags. Features like zippered pockets, adjustable straps, and interior compartments can also be customized to enhance functionality.

4. Using Custom Tote Bags in Marketing

Promotional Events

Custom tote bags are excellent giveaways at trade shows, conferences, or community events. They are practical, which increases the likelihood of them being used by recipients, thereby extending the reach of the brand.

Retail Merchandise

Many retailers offer branded tote bags as part of their merchandise, either for sale or as a complimentary gift with a purchase. This not only enhances the shopping experience but also encourages brand loyalty.

Corporate Gifts

Custom tote bags make thoughtful corporate gifts. Whether filled with other promotional items or given alone, they are a useful and appreciated token that can foster better relationships with clients and employees.

5. Sustainability and Social Responsibility

Supporting Eco-Friendly Practices

Businesses that use custom tote bags demonstrate a commitment to sustainability, an increasingly important factor for consumers. This commitment can strengthen a brand’s image as environmentally responsible and socially conscious.

Reducing Plastic Waste

By promoting the use of reusable tote bags, companies contribute to a reduction in plastic waste, a critical factor in global environmental conservation efforts.

6. Choosing a Supplier for Custom Tote Bags

When selecting a provider for custom tote bags, it is essential to consider the quality of materials, customization options, and the company’s environmental practices. Vograce, for instance, offers a comprehensive selection of custom tote bags with a focus on quality and customer satisfaction, making them a reliable choice for both personal and professional needs.

Conclusion

Custom tote bags blend functionality, style, and environmental responsibility, making them a smart choice for consumers and businesses alike. They offer an effective way to promote sustainability, enhance brand visibility, and express personal style. As society continues to embrace eco-friendly practices and personalized products, custom tote bags stand out as a practical and stylish solution that meets the needs of modern consumers.

MTN GHANA REFLECTS ON WORLD TELECOMS AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY DAY

Published

on

Stephen Blewett CEO For MTN Ghana

 On the occasion of the celebration of World Telecommunication and Information Society Day, MTN celebrates the transformative power of communication technology. At MTN Ghana, we remain committed to connecting people, enabling progress, and driving digital inclusion across our nation.

This year’s theme, “Digital Innovation for Sustainable Development,” is aligned with MTN’s Ambition 2025 strategy which seeks to lead digital solutions for Africa’s and Ghana’s progress with Environment, Social and Governance at the core. It demonstrates that technology, innovation, environmental and societal concerns are realities that cannot be overlooked if long-term sustainable socio-economic growth and prosperity is to be achieved in Africa. It also underscores the importance of leveraging and harnessing digital innovation in the telecommunications industry to provide innovative products and services, address global issues, drive socio-economic empowerment, and boost digital and financial inclusion.

Over the last 30 years, MTN has played a crucial role in Africa and Ghana in driving digital innovation on several fronts. From enhancing access to education and healthcare, boosting economic growth through digital skills and other support programmes, innovation in the fintech and digital economy sectors, fostering strategic collaborations, infrastructure investment among others, MTN’s contributions have been far-reaching and invaluable.

As a company rooted in Africa, our journey has been one of innovation, resilience, and collaboration. We have set the pace with our innovative products, empowered communities through our corporate social investments, and paved the way for a brighter digital future through our massive infrastructure investments. Partnerships with governments, businesses and others have been at the centre of our success in areas such as financial inclusion. As we reflect on our achievements, we extend our gratitude to each stakeholder who has been part of this remarkable journey.

As we celebrate the day, we reiterate the remarks of the CEO of MTN Ghana, Stephen Blewett, at the recent 3i Summit that “Africa’s fintech ecosystem is the engine that will drive its digital revolution and economic development in the coming years. Fintech can stimulate local economies and drive progress across the continent in several ways – financial inclusion, innovation and entrepreneurship, job creation, cross-border transactions and payments, digital identity and security, agriculture and rural development, government services, investment, and funding, as well as digital and financial literacy.”

His call for policy and legal frameworks to encourage the establishment of innovation hubs and 

digital sandboxes to provide the platform for incubating, testing, and rolling out new products reinforces the need for governments and businesses to be deliberate and collaborate in their approach to sustainable development.  Such hubs will be the channels for mentoring and nurturing the next generation of African entrepreneurs while providing the necessary resources, environment, and training in the digital space.

As we mark World Telecommunication Day 2024, let us reaffirm our commitment to harnessing digital innovation for sustainable development. By embracing technology as a force for good and leveraging its transformative potential, we can all work together in shaping Africa’s progress. 

Today, we celebrate the power of connectivity, the promise of technology, and the unity of purpose. Together, we shape a future where every Ghanaian can thrive in the digital world and affirm our belief that “everyone deserves the benefit of a modern connected life.”

We thank all our customers for being part of our journey and wish everyone a Happy World Telecoms and Information Society Day.

Potter’s family Chapel launches “UNTIL ONE DAY” with the theme SUPERNATURAL

Published

on

IMG 20240513 WA0017

In a gathering filled with blessings and the anointing of God, the launch of the church’s program “UNTIL ONE DAY” was a divine moment for all in attendance.

As members came together to kick off this special program, they reflected on the goodness and faithfulness of God, and the hope in Christ Jesus. It only takes one day for God to reveal His strength and power in our lives, turning our sorrows into joy and struggles into victories. One day can transform tears into joy, pain into gain, and tests into testimonies.

We are honored to welcome Rev Dr Anthony Cudjoe and Arch Bishop Charles Agyin Asare, esteemed fathers of faith, who will share their divine wisdom with us. Their presence is a testament to the divine connections orchestrated by God for this event.

From June 19th to 21st at 6pm each night, we will be blessed by the ministry of these servants of God, hosted by Prophet Alex Armstrong in prayer and worship. On June 23rd, there will be a gathering to dedicate the church building, Mercy Temple, as a symbol of God’s faithfulness and provision.

“UNTIL ONE DAY” is a time of hope and renewal of faith, trusting in God’s perfect timing and plan for our lives. May this program be a time of spiritual awakening, hope, and transformation as we draw closer to God and experience His presence in a new way.

May God’s blessings be upon us all as we embark on this journey together. Amen.
