When you’re single, you have a lot of free time on your hands to think about relationships. Lately, I’ve looked back at some of the relationships I’ve had and analyzed some of the relationships my friends and family have gone through. And I’ve realized that if you really think about it, all relationships end in either death, heartbreak, or an alien abduction.
If you don’t believe me, then let’s go through some thought experiments. First, let’s assume that the relationship is a success. Two people fall in love and eventually get engaged and married. Their marriage is a happy one, and they never break up or are abducted by extra terrestrials. Eventually, one or both of them will die and the relationship will end. This is the essence of “til death do us part.” It’s a happy ending, but a sad one too.
Now, let’s go in…

It has always been a topic of debate amongst many people, if women really talk more than men. This is actually a fact, women talk more than men. An average woman speaks about 20000 words per day while a male of same age can only reach 700. In average, a chatty kind of woman could speak 4.7 million more words than the male.
This fact has been unexplainable and unclear to scientists and researchers , and its why a team of researchers sought to find a biological underpinning for why women tend to have a natural gift for gab. Their question : What makes women more talkative than men?
A team of neuroscientists and psychology, noticed a behavioural adaptations of baby rats. They noticed the male rats squeaks more than the female and attracts the attention of their mother than the female.
When their brains were checked, a protein called “FOXP2” that is responsible vocalisation was more in the male rats than the female.
The researchers went ahead to reduce this protein in the male rats and increased them in the female, then the female squeaked more than the male.
This test was carried on human and was noticed that the female folks have more of this “FOXP2” protein than the male.
So Dont get pissed or angered when that lady beside you talks too much, and as a guy Dont get too surprised when that lady has enough words for expressions than you do, she apparently has more “FOXP2” protein than you do.

Born and raised in England and of Nigerian parentage, Ola Orekunrin made history when at the age of 21 she became a medical doctor thus becoming one of the youngest medical doctors in England. She started her medical degree at the University of York and passed with flying colours.
She was raised by foster white parents and went to a primary school run by Catholic nuns and her family often struggled to make ends meet. According to her, her foster mother, Dorren was a tremendous influence in shaping her life.
Now at age 26, Orekunrinis founder of The Flying Doctors, the first air ambulance service in West
Africa. She was prompted to start the new venture after her younger sister died of anaemia. Her sister was always in and out of hospitals and eventually died for lack of the availability of an air ambulance. But starting this venture was not easy.
She gave up a high flying job in England and her dreams of becoming the
president of the British Medical Association and minister for the conservative party and moved to Nigeria.
According to her, “I was rejected more times than I can remember.” “Sometimes I would spend hours waiting in an office only to be told to come back the next day and then be turned down.” she said.
“One time, on my way to Ondo State, I was robbed of all I had and was told by my companion, who was travelling with me, not to speak or else my accent would give me away and be the basis for my kidnap. Even in the face of difficultly, I was able to get some funding in addition to what I had saved up.
“The first time an air ambulance service was suggested for Nigeria was in 1960 and nothing was done about that idea. Having studied the models in Kenya, Libya, Uganda and India, coupled with my growing passion to help improve the health care system in Nigeria, which I believe is poor, I became even more determined to bring a similar service to Nigeria,” she said in a recent interview.
“We are completely physician-led and adhere to the highest standards of medical practice supported by the East Anglian Air Ambulance in the United Kingdom. Our mission is simple— to provide the best possible standard of health care to all.”
When asked if poor Nigerians would be able to benefit from her service, shesaid: “What I do hope is that more states will take up cover as well as making it increasingly available to the common man. I know that as Nigeriastarts to take health care reform more seriously, this will begin to happen.”
