Lambasted Emeralds: How Our Precious Stone Became A Pebble…

By ‘Joba Ojelabi


Love, like many other issues of the heart, is a complex yet simple phenomenon. There have been many schools of thought that have come to state that its control is not totally with man: That we cannot decide who or when to love, it just happens. And indeed, I remember that in my years in the Obafemi Awolowo University, never had I seen so many people love one lady so and interestingly, it was for no good reason. Jacob Oluwatosin had come to contest for office at a time when even the walls did not know her name. She had been a representative of the Faculty of Law at the Hallowed Chambers before then but only few cared to know, not when her competition were both former officials of the Hall Executive Council. However, it would seem that all she needed to do to change the mind of the great Ife was hold the microphone at Oduduwa Hall. Interestingly and very unusually, I was unable to attend the Debate of the elections that brought in the people’s precious stone but even I …

Picking Fruits Over Soft Drinks

Image
By Ayantayo-Ojo Damilola

The stress an average student passes through during the weeks of lecture can get quite tiring. Walking far distances to different lecture threaters in the sun to receive lectures. This obviously creates fatigue in the body as a chill refreshing soft drink is the next resort of students.  The body feels refreshed as it soothens the heated body instantly. The magic of the fizz seems to soothe the body and mind instantly.

Therefore, it is easy for students to get addicted to soft drinks such that they make it a thing of complusion everyday. Some even go ahead to take as much as two to three drinks in a day. An  average student takes at least four soft drinks within seven days.

   Though refreshing, these drinks are often filled with a lot of sugar and can have serious negative effects which might not be comparable with the short refreshment attained.
The soft drinks could cause serious health  problems such as teeth and bone damage, high risk of infertility, obesity…
