Destiny’s Child reunited Saturday night for a performance at the Stellar Gospel Music Awards!
Yes, yes, yes:BeyoncéandKelly Rowland joined former groupmate Michelle Williams at the Las Vegas event to sing Michelle’s song “Say Yes.” Awesome in and of itself, but the trio made it even better by dressing in their signature “same but different” outfits, with variations of white jackets and jeans.
This was the first time the ladies performed together since 2012, when they joined Beyoncé for a medley of “Bootylicious,” “Independent Women Part 1” and “Single Ladies” during Bey’s Super Bowl halftime show.
A new study claims that the most popular hair products for black women and children contain “multiple chemicals” linked to cancer, weight gain, asthma, and fertility issues, among other things.
Silent Springs Institute found that 80 percent of the 18 tested products (chosen based on customer surveys) contain high levels of chemicals that “disrupt” the endocrine system, which regulates metabolism, reproduction, and more. The product test was broken into six different categories: hot oil treatment, anti-frizz/polish, leave-in conditioner, root stimulator, hair lotion, and relaxer.
The study also found that 84 percent of the “detected chemicals were not listed on the product label,” while 72 percent of the products contained methyl paraben and diethyl phthalate (an acid that can emit toxic gases if burned). The highest numbers of parabens were found in hair lotions:
“The hair products tested contained 45 endocrine disrupting or asthma-associated chemicals, including every targeted chemical class. We found cyclosiloxanes, parabens, and the fragrance marker diethyl phthalate (DEP) at the highest levels, and DEP most frequently. Root stimulators, hair lotions, and relaxers frequently contained nonylphenols, parabens, and fragrances; anti-frizz products contained cyclosiloxanes.
Hair relaxers for children contained five chemicals regulated by California’s Proposition 65 [a 1986 law enacted to protect drinking water in the state from contamination from chemicals known to cause cancer, and reproductive issues] chemicals or prohibited by EU cosmetics regulation. Targeted chemicals were generally not listed on the product label.”
Higher levels of parabens were found in products targeted to black women compared to white women, the study uncovered. Additionally, research suggests that exposure to toxic chemicals in hair oils and relaxers could be directly linked to a “higher prevalence” of asthma in black girls and women, as well as early menstruation, fertility issues, obesity, uterine fibroids, and premature birth rates, along with increased cases of breast and endometrial cancers.
“These results indicate the need for more information about the contribution of consumer products to exposure disparities,” the study concludes. “A precautionary approach would reduce the use of endocrine disrupting chemicals in personal care products and improve labeling so women can select products consistent with their values.”
This isn’t the first time that perilous ingredients in black hair care products have been exposed. In 2016, Black Women for Wellness concluded a five-year study that found similar results.

First let me quote Jane Stanford of Standford University
“with a ‘spirit of equality’, one of my goals for the university is to resist the tendency and the stratification of society, by keeping open an avenue whereby the deserving and exceptional may rise through their own efforts from the lowest to the highest stations in life”.
According to various hypothesis and statements, the first and foremost purpose of education is to educate and give everyone equal opportunity as a means to succeed in life. Education is a way of igniting and enlightening the thought of an individual.
It should help learners to discriminate between knowledge and ignorance, help to create a spark and create the sense of realisation with logic and a way to reason why the other things are illogical. Click to Download your copy today
The purpose of vocational education
Every man must have a vocation – a trade, a business, or a profession – (if they are able too) in order to earn his livelihood so that they can support themselves, their family and people who cannot help themselves in our society. There are institutions for imparting various types of specialised training to help people qualify for this. The specialist is in demand everywhere, – in the office as well as in factories, in educational institutions and governments.
The Interlinkages between Technology and the economy
Innovation is pushing ahead at warp speed. We are certainly living through one of the most exciting periods in human history. The pace of change is so fast that even the technology of five years ago seems prehistoric.
Those of you who are students probably do not even remember a time when phones were not smart when cameras contained film when texts meant school books, and when wireless was a word used for old-fashioned radio! In view of this whilst conducting my mini research for this paper, I began to wonder how some of the following statements and themes became interwoven into the core of education and who started this process?
So let’s take a look at some of these themes and schemes, like me I think you will begin to wonder what happened to simply teaching someone something properly.
