Is the world in a leadership crisis?


In recent the world has seen an unprecedented revolt against political leaders from different countries. The youth have risen against their leaders asking for their removal. this shows clear where the power belongs. Power indeed does not belong to one person but to the people and citizenry of any country. Many, have express their support for the recent uprising in the Middle East whilst others say it a bad precedent for the world. The question for the day. Is the world in a leadership crisis?

HEALTHY LIVING FROM UDS



Diarrhea diseases including Cholera and other
illnesses such as typhoid continue to impact
negatively on our health and hence our wealth. Our
healthcare facilities are choked with people
vomiting and passing stools. Many of these
diseases are simply a result of the filth we surround
ourselves with and our poor personal and
environmental hygiene.
Before cholera breaks loose once again and other
illnesses virtually drain all the fluids in our body, we
will master a few easy to follow steps that can keep
us safe.
Easy to follow steps that protect us from infectious
diseases:
A.
Wash your hands with SOAP and WATER (wiping
your hands in your clothes is unacceptable):
• AFTER using the toilet
• AFTER cleaning a child or adult
• BEFORE eating
• BEFORE cooking or handling food
• AFTER multiple handshakes e.g. after a funeral or
party
• BEFORE going to sleep especially for children.
These simple steps can reduce the incidence of
vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pains and certain
pneumonias.
B.
• Brush your teeth properly at least twice a day
(morning and last thing before sleeping. Toothpaste
must contain fluoride) – it may even protect you
from heart disease
• Two baths a day is ideal. Wash your hair regularly
and comb or brush it.
• Do not continue wearing soiled clothing – sweat,
grease/oil, ingredients from cooking etc
• Wash your clothing with soap or a detergent DO
NOT just air them out
• Hair in armpit and pubic area should be shaved
regularly
• Keep fingernails (especially) short to avoid
trapping dirt
• Wipe dry the area in between your toes after a
bath
• Change your underwear daily
• Do not wear socks unwashed for days.
• Wash your bed sheet and towel at least once a
week
C.
• All refuse should be well covered
• Indiscriminate defecation should be avoided (can
you imagine how faeces may leak into burst
pipelines?)
• All water storage containers should be tightly
covered
• Drinking water should be boiled and filtered (boiled,
at least), and allowed to cool before drinking.
• Eat food while warm and be sure the source is
reliable
D
• Ensure your gutters are clean
• Do not entertain pools of water – they can breed
mosquitoes
AS ALWAYS LAUGH OFTEN, WALK AND PRAY
EVERYDAY AND REMEMBER IT’S A PRICELESS
GIFT TO KNOW YOUR NUMBERS (blood sugar,
blood pressure, blood cholesterol, BMI)

KNUST TO GO BIOMETRIC

Finally, KNUST has accepted biometric verification for SRC elections. I hope you don't encounter the problems our national elections had! But as students of the law, let's analyze the legal issues here.

1. Who is to manage this biometric elections, SRC EC or the Dean of students?

2. If the latter is correct, is the elections legal since the SRC constitution expressly states that the SRC EC is responsible for the conduct of all SRC elections.

3. Does the Judicial committee have the power to sit on any dispute in relation to this elections

should any dispute arise since the DOS is not subject to the jurisdiction of the court.

4. Our constitution expressly states that our elections be conducted by ballot. Does it include e-voting? (check out the dictionary meaning of ballot) Good luck to you all
