What color is on your tube of toothpaste?

When you find out about this, you’ll never buy the wrong toothpaste again! What color do you have?

Toothpaste – a regular product that we all have at home without spending too much time thinking about it. Because well, whichever one you prefer, they’re all the same right? We brush our teeth with toothpaste because it makes sure our teeth are clean, healthy and strong. However, not everyone is aware which type of toothpaste is right for their teeth.

There are so any different types of toothpaste in the world; whitening toothpaste, anti-cavity toothpaste, toothpaste for sensitive teeth.. you name it! It’s understandable that all these options make it pretty hard to make a good decision.

That is why most of us buy all-in-one toothpaste. You know the ones that are supposed to take care of all of our dental problems at ones. However, did you ever notice that those tubes have a black square on the back? And that is not actually a good thing… Perhaps you may have already noticed that every tube of toothpaste has a colored square on the back. This square can be green, blue, red or black. These colors represent the ingredients that the toothpaste is made out of.

What color is on your tube of toothpaste?

 

Green square: Do you see a green square on your toothpaste? Then lucky you, that means you’re using a toothpaste that is completely natural!

Blue square: If you see a blue square, that is still good because that means that you’ll find both natural and chemical ingredients in your toothpaste.

Red square: When you see a red square on the back, we have less good news for you because that means your toothpaste is made out of lots of chemicals and as you might suspect that isn’t really good for you teeth.

Black square: The worst type of toothpaste you can use is the one with a black square. These toothpastes are purely made out of chemicals that can really damage your teeth overtime.

So, the best toothpaste you can use to take care of your teeth is the one with a green or blue square on the back! Did you know about this? What color do you find on the back of your toothpaste? Share this article with your friends and family to let them know about this.

7 Ways for Dads to Strengthen Their Relationship With Their Daughters

While fathers certainly love all their children, it sure seems that more dads spend a lot more time with their sons. Perhaps they think that they have more in common with their boys, or maybe they are a little intimidated by the girls.

The Benefits of Father-Daughter Relationships

But with a little more understanding, fathers can feel just as comfortable around their daughters as they do their sons.

It is certainly important for fathers to connect with their daughters. Family research suggests that daughters who have secure and loving relationships with their fathers:

  • Have better grades in school
  • Feel better about themselves
  • Are more assertive without being aggressive
  • Feel more confident in relationships with men in general
  • Are more likely to be admitted to graduate school and get a degree.

Having a daughter with those attitudes and directions is worth a lot to a father. But in addition to the lifelong positives of a good father-daughter relationship, nurturing that kind of relationship can be a real opportunity for a father in the here and now.

So what can a father do to create a loving and secure relationship with his daughter?

Start on Her Birthday

Fathers who best create this positive relationship start on the day she is born. Get involved in her life from the very outset. Take an active role in caring for this baby girl.

 The more time you spend with her earlier, the easier it will be to continue building the relationship later.

Teach Her New Things

While it is great when a dad teaches his daughter to ride a bike or to read or do chores, often the best things he can teach her are “guy things.” Skills like fixing a car, fishing, golfing, or home repairs will serve a girl just as well as a boy and will give her confidence that she can tackle anything.

Just being with her dad doing things he is good at will be a real treat for her.

Listen Lots

Many of our daughters love to talk and girls tend to vocalize more than the boys do growing up. What a dad can do to build his relationship with his daughter is to listen more. Pay attention to what she says when you are together. Listen to what she is thinking, dreaming and wishing in her life. And most of all, keep confidences. When she shares something with you that is private and bares her soul, don’t repeat the story. It is one sure way to hurt your relationship when you violate a trust.

Make Time For Fun

It’s important to make daddy/daughter dates. We suggest checking out the latest toys at the toy store or go out for an ice cream treat. Do things together that are fun and entertaining such as miniature golfing, hiking, swimming, going to library story time and going to plays. Building fun memories in a positive environment can make a big difference.

Tell Her She’s Beautiful

This will sound a little corny to some fathers, but it is important. Modern culture and the media often give our daughters messages that they need to be the right weight, wear the right makeup, dress stylishly and sometimes immodestly to be beautiful.

When you tell your daughter she is beautiful, emphasize the importance of being beautiful inside – more than skin-deep. Compliment her when her eyes sparkle or when she breaks into a big smile.

Write Notes and Letters

You may remember from your dating years that girls love cards and notes and letters. Take the time occasionally to write your daughter a letter expressing your feelings, letting her know how you feel about her and how proud you are of her. These little personal expressions mean and lot to our daughters and are a good way of showing love.

Be a Great Example of Manhood

The way your daughter sees you treat women makes a big difference in how she will see ​men later in her life. Be on your best behavior with her, her mother and other female friends and relatives. Simple courtesy and kindness will go a long way in helping her know what to expect of men in her later life.​

Making time and expending energy in building your relationship with your daughter will pay big dividends over time. Even though it may seem like more fun to spend time with the boys, there is still nothing quite like the relationship that can develop between a daughter and her daddy.

Legendary musician Hugh Masekela has died

Legendary musician Bra Hugh Masekela has died, SAfm and eNCA reported on Tuesday. Bra Hugh’s manager, Josh Georgiou, was not immediately available to confirm the report. The musician’s team released a statement in October saying he had been battling prostate cancer since 2008.

The statement explained that the jazz veteran underwent eye surgery in March 2016 after the cancer spread, and had to go into theater again in September 2016 as another tumor was discovered.

In December, Georgiou told TshisaLIVE that he was fighting the disease with everything he had.

Bra Hugh was born in KwaGuqa township in Witbank and began singing and playing the piano as a child.

After seeing the flick Young Man with a Horn at 14-years-old, Masekela began playing the trumpet. His first trumpet was given to him by Archbishop Trevor Huddleston, an anti-apartheid chaplain at St. Peter’s Secondary School.

He soon mastered the instrument and by 1956 joined Alfred Herbet’s African Jazz Revue. Bra Hugh’s music was inspired by the turmoil that South Africa went through during apartheid and he said it was used as a weapon to spread political change.

Ogoo

Ogochukwu Oye better known as Ogoo was born in a close-knit Nigerian family in Awka, Anambra State
in Nigeria. Her passion for music has always been there since her teenage years, and somehow crowns
her mom’s prediction that she would be a singer and dancer. Perhaps this explains why years after
practicing as a certified Barrister at law, Ogoo decided to pursue her first love and passion, music.
As Ogoo, whose music influences include Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars and Adele grew older, she found
herself loving music and music for her comes naturally. She grew musically by joining the choir at a
tender age.

The second track Onye Isi Oma is a beautiful classic love song depicting how lucky and grateful a girl is to have found her one true love. It is a beautifully crafted melodious and dance-able tune sung both in
English and Igbo that will surely keep you grooving all day.
Onye Isi Oma is available for purchase, download and streaming on iTunes, Apple Music, Deezer, Spotify,
YouTube and all other music streaming services.

Nozipho Zulu

Autobiography

 

Nozipho Zulu was born at Shongwe Hospital in 1987 and she was raised by her mother and her grandmother was still alive, she is the first born child and it happened that she was the only grandchild that her grandmother had to raise. “It was fun that I got everything I wanted from my uncles and anyone who visited home. Growing up being raised by my mom and grandmother was actually great. As for my father he was not always available but he loved me so much because every time he was around he would make sure that he visited me and would also have something just to cheer me I guess. She said.

“I have a younger sister but we did not grow up together because I had to move from Mgobodi to Clau-Clau to live with my uncle. Growing up living with my uncle was not so great it was just fine i managed to finish all my grades including my grade 12.”

Nozipho lost her mother in the year 2014. Then she knew that she was all by herself. “Things changed the moment I realised that I actually lost both my parents, it’s just me and my sister and I look around me, I see young people suffer, most of them they did not go to school due to lack of funds and some they ran away from home because of the abuse they face for not being raised by their parents. I told myself that that will not stand on my way to success; I wanted to be a testimony. And yes I am because now I am on a commercial online station (Ubuthebe FM Live), a station that talks to every young person who wants to make it in life and those who wants just to give up because of life they think it’s not fair to them, life yes it’s not fair to anyone but once you make a decision that you want to do it, you can and you will, you just have to make your dream a reality, this radio station has been able to change people’s lives for the better.

“I’m glad to have made a decision to be part of this amazing radio station now I live to see other people smile because they are making it out there.

8 Ways Your Relationship Changes After Marriage

8 Ways Your Relationship Changes After Marriage

Some people will say that tying the knot doesn’t change a relationship, but because it bonds two people together forever there are some fundamental things that will inevitably shift for a duo. For better or worse, here are some of the ways marriage alters the world of newlyweds.

1. Intimacy changes

Sex gets better after you’re married. Why? It could be because you realize you’re in it to win it in the bedroom (for life) or, more likely, that the intimacy the bond brings makes you feel more comfortable and confident when snuggling. Barriers be gone!

2. Others look at you differently.

Though people won’t say they’ll view you differently after you’re married, they will and the do. All of sudden it feels like everyone has a vested interest in your relationship and your life together. Some newlyweds even say they feel like their bosses assume they’re more responsible because they’ve tied the knot.

3. You fight differently

When dating, partners may sweat the small stuff, like who to hang out with and what to do on the weekend. Once you’re married, though, you know you have plenty of time to catch up with friends or tackle a task. Arguments become about larger more complex issues that will affect your life together, like saving for retirement or where to live.

4. Time flies by

Think about when you first start dating someone – you end up being infatuated with them. You’re probably young and figuring yourself out, too. All of the ups and downs you go through and the amount of time you spend getting to know your new lover can feel like an eternity. Time almost stands still. Not so when you’re married. Once you’ve sealed the deal and are together forever, life seems to blow by. That could be because new obligations find you (like buying a house or raising children) or it could be that you never feel like you have enough time to spend with your partner.

5. You do more.

When you’re single your schedule is your schedule. When you’re married, you have two people’s schedules to accommodate. There are also the minor tasks of keeping up your house and paying bills. Post-wedding day it will feel as though responsibilities are piling on your plate, as are get-togethers and party invites from various guests. The key is to roll with it. Juggling so many hats can be fun!

6. You look at everyone differently.

Never before will spending a night on the couch seem so lovely as it does once you’re married. That’s not to say you won’t want to go out and party with friends, it’s just that there’s a new level of security and comfort that goes along with coupling permanently.

7. Savings are superior.

Though not always true, how you spend money will change after you get married. Instead of dropping your latest paycheck on something that matters just to you, you’ll end up asking yourself whether the money could be better spent on something to enjoy with your partner (like a trip abroad or a house in the city). Savings almost always trump spending.

8. How you work together.

Once you’re married you’re officially a team, which means you tend to have each other’s backs more than you used to. Everything you do is to the benefit of the other. You end up being more supportive of each person’s individual endeavours and goals.
