Yesterday’s monologue RIP or Rest In Peace inquiring restlessness in pieces by Savtia Rani, and Satsang Teatro in CRIPA was mature performance on the topic of feminism or life of a women in India.
Savita depicts a wife, who’s sole purpose is to be a devoted wife, and a mother, who’s duty is to be beautiful, fragile … feminine. Yet, the wife decides that she wants, and needs to be more that that, and finds her fulfilment on the day when her husband takes a decision to travel. Her plan succeeds, but along bring disappointments. Although the wife is happy to travel, and learn more about life, she get across as well the ugly tricks of political games of her husband.

Secret Agent

Today’s musical podcast features Tony Allen’s album Secret Agent.
Tony Oladipo Allen (born 1940 in Lagos, Nigeria) is a Nigerian drummer, composer and songwriter who currently lives and works in Paris. His career and life story have been documented in his 2013 autobiography Tony Allen: Master Drummer of Afrobeat, co-written with author/musician Michael E. Veal, who previously wrote a comprehensive biography of Fela Kuti.
As drummer and musical director of Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s band Africa 70 from 1968 to 1979, Allen was one of the primary co-founders of the genre of Afrobeat music. Fela once stated that, “without Tony Allen, there would be no Afrobeat.”[2] He has also been described by Brian Eno as “perhaps the greatest drummer who has ever lived.”

Sustainability with Hemp

Controversial, yet very hot topic on use of hemp or cannabis (marihuana) …was in the spotlight  of today’s interview with Viki Vaurora and Deblina Chowdhury. Fighting with his own illness,  Vicki got across with medicinal properties of cannabis, and amazed by results he dive into the topic. In 2014 The Great Legalization Movement was established, and along with others Viki also initiated Indian Hemp Research Institute which is in process to be supported by Indian government. However both, Deblina and Viki do see sustainability of the country in the use of industrial hemp which versatility could replace many materials , from our homes, clothing, food, to bio plastic, and fuel.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemp
Hemp or industrial hemp (from Old English
hænep) typically found in the northern hemisphere, is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. It is one of the fastest growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber 10,000 years ago. It can be refined into a variety of commercial items including paper, textiles, clothing, biodegradable plastics, paint, insulation, biofuel, food, and animal feed.

Although cannabis as a drug and industrial hemp both derive from the species Cannabis sativa and contain the psychoactive component tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), they are distinct strains with unique phytochemical compositions and uses.[6] Hemp has lower concentrations of THC and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD), which decreases or eliminates its psychoactive effects. The legality of industrial hemp varies widely between countries. Some governments regulate the concentration of THC and permit only hemp that is bred with an especially low THC content

Libanga

Music industry, as we know it all over the world is falling apart. But Congo is an exception . Congolese musicians has invented “libanga”. They’re not relying on all the complex laws and technology, digital rights management . Use of “libanga” or shout out to rich and powerful people in their songs. For example Eternellement – This simple, poetic love song, “Eternellement,” crooned by megastars Fally Ipupa and Koffi Olomide, is really an open appeal for sponsorship that’s specifically addressed to a man named Laurent Lorenzo.
If the number becomes a hit, Lorenzo — and other elite members of Congolese society — will feel compelled to reciprocate with gifts of money, cars and even houses. So, in one of the poorest countries in the world, the use of “libanga” helps popular musicians to stay afloat.
Following musical podcast features Congolese Rumba pieces, made in “libanga” style.

Fally Ipupa – Eternellement
Koffi Olomide – 13ieme Apotre

Skin Bleaching is Addictive!

For Catherine Tetteh the story of skin bleaching is very personal. She is actively educating people and fighting against skin bleaching in Togo and throughout Africa.  People are not aware of the Skin Bleaching industry being more profitable than the Pharmaceutical industry, or illicit drugs,  along with dangerous effects.  Aside from some of the very dangerous and harmful ingredients of bleaching products, it is also a fact that they are highly addictive due to cortisone as a main ingredient of those products.
Catherine talks about various side effects of daily usage of skin bleaching products which vary from skin rashes to cancers, sterility, and diseases induced by deep penetration of toxic and carcinogenic bio-products into the body.
Skin bleaching is widely used around the planet.  The reasons for its use slightly vary in different parts, but have a common denominator – “beauty comes first” says Catherine, but people and the industry are quiet about it.

What Is Skin Bleaching?
Skin bleaching is a cosmetic treatment to reduce the prominence of skin
discolorations and even out the color of the skin. You can buy bleaching creams over the counter and by prescription.
Some people apply skin
lightener to their entire body to change their complexion, but this can be very risky. The active ingredient in some skin lighteners is mercury, so bleaching can lead to mercury poisoning.
Mercury is a
toxic agent that can cause serious psychiatric, neurological, and kidney problems. Pregnant women who use a skin lightener with mercury can pass the mercury to their unborn child.
The use of mercury as an ingredient in skin
lighteners is banned in the U.S. However, some skin lighteners produced outside the U.S. may still contain mercury.

Skin lightening agents may include:
Hydroquinone
Cysteamine
Topical
retinoids
Botanicals
Other agents
Topical
corticosteroids
Mercury
