  • The most expensive cities in the world 2017

    This is one time where most Americans don’t want to be No. 1.

    The Economist Intelligence Unit, the research and analysis division of The Economist Group this week ranked the world’s priciest cities. Of the 10 most expensive cities, five are in Asia. Singapore came out at No. 1, followed by Hong Kong. The third-most expensive city is Zurich, Switzerland, the city with the highest cost of living in Europe. Tokyo and Osaka, both in Japan, are fourth and fifth, followed by Seoul, South Korea. Geneva, Switzerland, and Paris tied for seventh, and New York and Copenhagen tied at No. 9.

    The study rated the cities according to how expensive it is to buy basic items there at supermarkets, mid-priced stores and specialty outlets, using the price of food, drinks, clothing, recreation and entertainment and the cost of buying and running a car (including the cost of gasoline).

    It also includes recurring expenses, including the cost of renting a home, utility bills, private schools and domestic help. It takes into account the relative strength of each of the countries’ respective currencies. A slight weakening of the U.S. dollar, for instance, contributed to New York’s relatively low ranking and kept many other pricey U.S. cities off the list.

  • Death toll reaches 65 in Ethiopia landfill collapse

    The death toll has reached 65 from the collapse of a mountain of trash at a massive garbage dump on the outskirts of Ethiopia's capital, according to media reports.

    It was not clear what caused Saturday night's collapse, though residents have said the dumping of trash had resumed there in recent months after protests at a newer landfill site.

    Weeping mourners clutching photos of the dead lined the narrow roads around the Koshe landfill as police tried to block people from entering, while rescue and recovery work continued. Most of the dead are women and children.

    The landfill has been a dumping ground for the capital's garbage for more than 50 years. Smaller collapses have occurred at Koshe — or "dirty" in the local Amharic language — in the past two years but only two or three people were killed, residents said.

    Addis Ababa's mayor has vowed to relocate those living at the landfill, which officials say receives close to 300,000 tons of waste collected each year from the capital.

  • Landslide at Addis Ababa’s major rubbish dump leaves 46 dead; Premier extends condolences

    Morethan 46 people have reportedly been found dead after a catastrophic landslide at a vast rubbish dump located in the South -West outskirts of Addis Ababa, authorities said on Sunday.

    Diriba Kuma, mayor of the Addis Ababa city, told journalists that about 46 people found dead and several people who had been rescued are receiving medical treatment.

    Many people at the site had been scavenging items to make a living while others live at the landfill because of cheap rental houses mostly built of mud.

    A number of makeshift homes surrounding the landfill are said to have been completely buried by waste.

    PM Hailemariam Desalegn extended his condolences to the families of those who lost their lives by the catastrophic landslide.

    In his condolence message, aired on the state-run Ethiopian Broadcasting Corporation (EBC), the premier expressed his government’s commitment to help the families of victims at a deadly incident.

  • Science Confirms: The More Coffee You Drink, The Longer You Will Live

    Coffee is one of the healthiest beverages on the planet.

    It is more than just dark-colored liquid with caffeine… coffee actually contains hundreds of different compounds, some of which have important health benefits.

    Several massive studies have now shown that the people who drink the most coffee live longer and have a reduced risk of diseases like Alzheimer’s and diabetes.

    Coffee is a Major Source of Antioxidants

    When hot water runs through the coffee grounds while brewing, the substances in the coffee beans mix with the water and become part of the drink.

    Some of these substances are well known, including caffeine, but there are hundreds of other compounds in there as well, many of which science has yet to identify.

    Many of these compounds are antioxidants that protect our bodies from oxidation, which involves free radicals that damage molecules in the body.

    Without getting into complicated details, oxidation is believed to be one of the mechanisms behind ageing and common diseases like cancer and heart disease.

    Coffee, believe it or not, happens to be the biggest source of antioxidants in the Western diet, outranking both fruits and vegetables… combined (1, 2, 3).

    When you’re treating yourself with a cup of coffee, you’re not only getting caffeine but a whole bunch of other beneficial compounds, including powerful antioxidants.

  • 6 COMMONLY MISSED SIGNS OF OVARIAN CANCER...

    1. Swollen or Bloated Abdomen

    Swelling happens when fluid, called ascites, is trapped in the Abdominal cavity This is a symptom that occurs later as the disease progresses, but can still be blamed on other health issues. Thus, it is important to keep track of your health and compare this symptom to any of the other signs below.

    2. Persistent Pain in the Abdomen or Pelvis

    Chronic pain that displays itself in the abdomen or pelvis is a clear sign that something is wrong. This is a symptom for both ovarian cancer and ovarian cysts. Any pain that does not go away after a couple of days should be taken very seriously.

    3. Feeling Full or Difficulty Eating

    Oddly enough, women who are suffering from ovarian cancer will feel full faster and will have difficulty eating as much as usual. This is most likely because the cancer is disrupting the hormones that control metabolism.

    04: Urinary Problems

    Increase urination is a sign of ovarian cancer. The fluid that builds up, and causes the swelling mentioned above will push on the bladder. This is why women with ovarian cancer will need to use the restroom more often. Unfortunately, this symptom is often attributed to bladder problems.
     
    05: Change in Bowel Movements
     
    Any change in bowel movements, or constipation or diarrhea, could be a sign of ovarian cancer. This could be because the cancer has spread to the colon or because pressure from fluid buildup could be affecting the area.
     
    06: Spotting Between Periods
     
    Spotting can be linked to several different health issues, and one of them is ovarian cancer. Any abnormal bleeding should be mentioned to a health care professional. It is not normal and is commonly linked to serious reproductive system health problems.
    Of course, one or two of the symptoms listed above could be attributed to another, less serious health problem. That is why ovarian cancer often goes undiagnosed for months.
