[4]. A third type of Diabetes is: Gestational Diabetes. Gestational Diabetes is described as hyperglycaemia or raised blood sugar, with blood values above normal but below blood levels that can diagnose diabetes, during pregnancy.

Women suffering from gestational diabetes are at an increased risk of developing  complications, during pregnancy and delivery. The pregnant woman and her children could be at an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, in the future.Related image

[5]. Currently, 422 million people globally, suffer from some form of diabetes. The prevalence of Diabetes, has steadily progressed in the past 3 decades. This mirrors an increase in the prevalence of obesity and overweight people.

Research states that,diabetes is growing most rapidly in low and middle – income families.

[6]. Diabetes is now, the number 1 leading cause of death, in the world. In 2012, diabetes caused 1.5 million deaths.

An additional 2.2 million deaths were caused in the same year by higher than optimal levels of blood glucose, through an increased risk of cardiovascular and other diseases. It has been noted that, even when blood glucose levels were not high enough to signal a diagnosis of diabetes – damage can still ravage the body.

Cardiovascular disease, is a risk that increases, as blood glucose levels rise.

Jacques Moritz, M.D., an OBGYN at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City said:

“This is antiquated and total B.S.,” “It used to be that the risk of a woman at age 35 having a baby with Down syndrome (one in 350) was equivalent to the risk of her suffering a miscarriage during amniocentesis (a test that detects chromosomal abnormalities).

He continued:

“This is why experts believed 35 and older to be a high risk age. Now, however, that’s completely outdated: “Thanks to technology such as guided ultrasounds, the risk of miscarriage during an amnio can be as low as one in 1000.”

Jacques Moritz explains:

“While the study didn’t define the individual circumstances that are more likely to cause birth risks, age in and of itself is not the determining factor.”

“It’s true that age definitely plays a role in fertility (it starts to sharply drop at age 35), but past performance is the best indicator. If you’ve had a healthy baby before, you should be good regardless of your age.”

PREGNANCY AND THE MIRACLE OF LIFE

one of the most important elements for avoiding complications is maintaining a healthy weight, which makes one, less likely to have gestational diabetes or preeclampsia (a dangerous condition that is always characterized by high blood pressure).

Dr. Moritz advised: “If approved by your doctor, try certain diet changes and workouts for each trimester.

Regular exercise and a well-balanced diet are the key to supporting a healthy pregnancy regardless of age.

SLAVERY AND SEX TRAFFICKING IN THE 21ST CENTURY – LIBYA AND ITALY: PROBED

ITALY BURIED 26 NIGERIAN GIRLS WHO DROWNED DURING A MIGRANT CROSSING FROM LIBYARelated image

The 26 Nigerian women who died in the Mediterranean sea, were attempting to cross from Libya to Italy, were buried en masse, in wooden coffins, with white flowers, in the southern city of Salerno, Italy.

A Roman Catholic Bishop and a Muslim Imam, officiated the mass burial. Only two of the 26 women were identified. Some were pregnant.

Sex traffickers from  Libya and Italy are enslaving, raping, dehumanizing and killing Nigerian and most of Africa`s migrant laborers.

Several Nigerian young migrant laborers including Africans from other parts of the continent are forced into slavery and prostitution in Libya and Italy on a daily basis.

MIGRANTS AT A DETENTION CENTER IN ZAWIYAH – LIBYA

Nigerian girls, as young as 13 are being beaten and threatened into submission by their so called “SAVIORS” and dangerous captors. These children and women are being forced to sell themselves on the streets of Libya and Italy for as little as $10.00.

A LIBYAN COASTGUARD LOOMS OVER 147 MIGRANT LABORERS WHO HAD HOPED FOR A BETTER LIFE IN EUROPE

UNICEF and The International Organization For Migration says:

Some African migrant laborers are susceptible to to abuse, dehumanization, gang rape and an assorted array of exploitation, from Libyans and Italians. Among those who are more vulnerable are, migrant laborers who have endured long journeys,  the uneducated, those who travel alone and children of any age.

A UNICEF spokesman – Christopher Tidey says:

“Migrant laborers from sub-Saharan Africa are most vulnerable of all, simply because of their skin color.”

“It’s a brutal, terrible reality, but young people need to know the risks before deciding to go,” “Bottom line: This proves how essential it is that migrant and refugee children have access to safe and legal migration pathways.”

THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA IS DEMANDING AN EXPLANATION FROM THE LIBYAN AND ITALIAN OFFICIALS ABOUT THE DEAD 26 NIGERIAN WOMENRelated image

There is research documenting the abuse and exploitation of migrant laborers, based on a large number of factors. It disclosed the testimony of 22,000 migrant laborers and refugees, from age 14 to 24, trying to cross the Mediterranean.

The research offers an example:

An adolescent boy from sub-Saharan Africa, even one who has secondary education and travels in a group along the Central Mediterranean route, faces a 75 percent risk of being exploited.

If he came from another region, where skin tones are lighter, the risk would drop to 38 percent, it says.

“Countless testimonies from young migrants and refugees from sub-Saharan Africa make clear that they are treated more harshly and targeted for exploitation because of the color of their skin,” the report says.

Tensions between North Africans and sub-Saharan Africans have long existed.

FACES OF SOME OF THE NIGERIAN IMMIGRANT LABORERS AND THEIR CHILDREN – WHO WERE SAVED FROM THE MEDITERRANEANRelated image

An upsurge in employment has motivated migrant laborers from several Sub – Saharan African countries to leave home in the hope of finding work in European countries.

While children are always at greater risk than adults, no matter their country of origin, those who cross to Libya, are always at the greatest risk.

The IOM also added that:

“In Libya, they contend with pervasive lawlessness and violence and are often detained, by state authorities and others.”

In Libya, most immigrants are shot at, locked up, beaten, starved to death and tricked into calling their relatives forcing them to pay large ransoms to secure the release of their loved ones.

A Sierra Leonean migrant laborer, who currently lives in a tent in Italy, named Sheku B. Kallon said:

“Smugglers charge people who have black skin more money for the trip. Traffickers justify the steep fees because they face more difficulties taking black people through Libya, where discrimination is more common.”

Sheku said, in Libya, himself and several other migrants with dark skin, were covered with dark tarpaulin in the back of trucks by the traffickers, who dreaded being seen with black immigrant laborers.

The dark skinned migrant workers were forced to pay more money to smugglers because there is so much discrimination in Libya.

On arrival in Tripoli, Libya, Sheku and his group worked for Libyan Arabs. They were paid less or not at all because, their employers resented them for the dark color of their skin.

Mr. Kallon added:

“I do not think there is any place, worse than Libya”

Prince Charles, Prince Harry`s father made the announcement, saying that, Prince Harry had also informed his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the royal family.

Prince Charles said:

The couple started dating, last summer. Prince Charles is said to be quite thrilled with Prince Harry`s proposal and happily disclosed on Twitter that, Meghan Markle`s parents have graciously given Harry,  their consent.

Prince Charles added that, only the queen and certain members of the family knew about the engagement which took place in London, earlier this month.

The engaged couple will be available for photographs outside Kensington Palace this afternoon and will take part in a broadcast interview, in the evening.

Ms Markle’s parents, Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, said their daughter was a “kind and loving person” and they were “incredibly happy”.

They added:

PRINCE HARRY AND MS. MEHAN MARKLEImage result for Photos of meghan markle and prince harry

Since the announcement of the happy couple’s engagement this morning, everyone from royal correspondents to Twitter users have been passing comment on Ms. Markle’s mixed-race heritage.

In 2015, she wrote a first-person piece for Elle magazine explaining how she feels about it.

In part, she spoke of having to fill out a “census” for her English class, with the only options of black, white, Hispanic, or Asian.

“You could only choose one, but that would be to choose one parent over the other – and one half of myself over the other.”

Her teacher told her to pick Caucasian, because – in the teacher’s view – that’s what she looked like. But a young Meghan refused.

“So, I didn’t tick a box. I left my identity blank – a question mark, an absolute incomplete – much like how I felt. When I went home that night, I told my dad what had happened. He said the words that have always stayed with me: ‘If that happens again, you draw your own box.”

Asked by a reporter when he knew Suits star Ms Markle “was the one”, Prince Harry said: “The very first time we met”.

“The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh said they were “delighted for the couple and wish them every happiness.”

Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, said:

“We are very excited for Harry and Meghan”, adding: “It has been wonderful getting to know Meghan and to see how happy she and Harry are together.”

Ivanka Trump and former President Bill Clinton and former Democratic Presidential Nominee – Hillary Clinton`s daughter, Chelsea Clinton, have come to the defense of President Barack Obama`s teenage daughter – Malia Obama.

Malia was videotaped blowing smoke rings and kissing her boyfriend, Rory Farquharson, right before a Harvard-Yale football game, on Saturday. Members of the press, normally  keep their distance and do not get involved in personal matters that involve the young children of our Presidents and past Presidents.

Ivanka Trump was the first person who leapt forward, strongly defending the teenage Malia Obama, while showing her distaste for the press and their blatant disregard for young Malia Obama`s privacy.

Ivanka said:

“Malia Obama should be allowed the same privacy as her school aged peers. She is a young adult and private citizen, and should be OFF limits.”

Right after Ivanka Trump`s tweet came Chelsea Clinton`s tweet, admonishing the press and simply stating the fact that, Malia Obama`s personal life should not be compromised.

“Malia Obama’s private life, as a young woman, a college student, a private citizen, should not be your clickbait. Be better.”

Several concerned citizens started Tweeting their support for 19 Year old Malia, while chiding certain members of the press.

Astrid Silva tweeted:

“When 19 year old Malia Obama, a college freshman, is under more scrutiny for who she makes out with than old White male elected officials for assaulting women…something broke”.

Kaivan Shroff, COO and Chief Strategy Officer at Institute for Education in New York, said:

“Malia Obama is a 19-year-old acting her age at Harvard. She balanced being a kid and being First Daughter extremely well, despite unethical pursuit by the media. If conservatives are worried about America’s teens, they should stop adult men from dating 14-year-old girls”.

THRUPLE WORKS JUST FINE FOR MARRIED COUPLE – CHRIS AND MATT! #chrisandmattbrandt #caitearnest #thruple #relationship

CHRIS BRANDT, 28, CAIT EARNEST, 28 AND CHRIS`S HUSBAND, MATT BRANDT, 38, ARE A THRUPLE

Married couple, Chris and Matt Brandt, decided to explore an open relationship after 8 years together. Chris finally met 28 year old Cait on a 2015 dating app and the trio decided to embark on a Thruple.

They decided to invite Cait Earnest into their marriage, knowing that several problems  could possibly begin to creep into their 8 year relationship, should either one of the three decide to change the dynamic of their new relationship which has become a  – Thruple.

THEY SHARE THE SAME HOUSEHOLD, THE SAME BED AND THE SAME PETS

The trio all share the same household, sleep in the same bed , share two adorable pets and plan to have children with Cait.

Chris and Cait developed very strong feelings for one another after meeting one another on the dating app, back in 2015. Matt worked that dilemma out with Chris, by suggesting that they invite Cait to join their marriage as a girlfriend to both of them.

Chris explained that Matt had never been in a relationship with a woman.

He said:

“Matthew had never had any experience with women before he’d met me. And before I met Matthew I had dated quite a few girls and quite a few guys”.

“I suggested to Matt, ‘How would you feel about involving a woman in some fashion?”

“At first he was completely opposed to the idea but after a while we talked about it and he warmed up to the idea.”

AFTER EIGHT YEARS OF MARRIAGE, CHRIS HAD A BRILLIANT IDEA: THE INTRODUCTION OF A WOMAN, INTO THEIR UNION

Eventually, all 3 of them, fell madly in loved with one another and their Thruple relationship proceeded full speed. They were so much in love, all 3 of them became  inseparable.

THE THRUPLE, CONSTANTLY SHOWERS ONE ANOTHER WITH GIFTS THAT EXPRESS THEIR LOVE

Chris continued:

“I suggested to Matt, ‘How would you feel about involving a woman in some fashion?’At first he was completely opposed to the idea but after a while we talked about it and he warmed up to the idea”.

“The three of us started to spend more and more time together and after about seven or eight months she was staying over five nights a week”.

CHRIS, MATT AND CAIT, ALL PLAN TO HAVE CHILDREN TOGETHER, AT SOME POINT

In light of the decision all three of them have made to stay together. Cait prefers to be quite candid with people concerning the dynamic of their relationship.

Cait said:

“When we meet somebody at a bar I will usually say, ‘Hi, I’m Cait and these are my two boyfriends. People often ask if I’m joking”.

Although things are usually plain sailing, the thruple’s relationship throws up some curve balls too – including ‘bed placing’.

Chris said:

“In regards to bed placing, it does complicate things. Matthew and I used to sleep on opposite sides and then Cait came long.

CAIT ASSERTED HER PRESENCE BY CHANGING THEIR SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS

“If I wanted to stay on the same side Cait would have to be in the middle and we found quickly she didn’t like that”.

Cait, for the fist time in her adult life, was suddenly introduced to sex with more than one partner, after she met Matt and Chris.

She said:

“I had never been with two people at the same time before. It’s different strokes for different folks but I would say it’s a pretty fun sex life”.

CHRIS, CAIT AND MATT ARE SO CLOSE, THEY EVEN OPTED TO HAVE THESAME TATOO

Nine months into their relationship with Cait, Matt and Chris tied the knot but they made sure Cait was right there with them.

Matt said:

“Even when we got married Cait officiated the wedding, we wanted to make her the most involved as she possibly could be.”

While Chris and Cait are both bisexual, Matt identifies as homoflexible.

CHRIS AND CAIT ARE BISEXUAL, WHILE MATT BRANDT SAID, HE IS HOMOFLEXIBLE

Matt added:

“I’m homoflexible so I like guys and I’m open, flexible to women – I prefer men.

“I guess I had an awakening after I had a sexual experience with a woman. It is just another body, another soul, a connection that I can have”.

Although the trio is content now, they have all struggled with jealousy at one point in the relationship.

Cait said:

“When we first got together I was struggling with jealousy.

“With having a very strong connection with Chris and sometimes feeling frustrated that I would have to split time with Matt” “But with a lot of that came a lot of insecurity, because I didn’t know where my place was in the relationship”.

Matt disclosed the fact that he was mindlessly jealous of the connection between Cait and Chris, at a certain point in their relationship.

He said: “It was a struggle even for me. The insecure part of me was like, ‘Chris loves me more because he’s been with me longer’, but then he told me ‘I love you just as much as I love Cait, so I was like, ‘I need to come to terms with that’.”

With the three of them in the relationship, no-one in the thruple is ever wanting for attention, but Matt says there’s one particular highlight – the gifts!

MATT EXPLAINED THE INITIAL PROBLEMS THAT PLAGUED THEIR DECISION TO BECOME A THRUPLE

He said: “One of the best things about being in a thruple is that you get more gifts. Holidays, birthdays, we like to celebrate everything!”

Now that they have been living together for two years, the thruple are even discussing future children.

Matt added:

 

“As far as kids, I think any child would be lucky to have three parents but we have twodogs for now and that’s enough”.

Fashion`s nonconformist and designer to the stars – Azzadine Alaia is dead at age 77. The diminutive designer died at his home in Paris, France on Saturday, announced the French Haute Couture Federation.

On February 26th, 1940, Azzedine Alaia was born onto a wheat farming family in Tunis, Tunisia. His parents had no interest in fashion but his twin sister began to nurture and encourage a talent she recognized in her brother and helped him gain admission into the local Eco des Beaux- Arts in Tunis.

He began studying the human form and sculpture and later moved to Paris in 1957. In Paris, he started working as a dressmaker`s assistant and then moved on to work for Guy Laroche, Thierry Mugler and Christian Dior.

In the 1970s, he opened his own shop and began dressing very wealthy women such as the Mitterands, Picassos, Marie-Helene de Rothschild, Louise de Vilmorin and his close friend – Greta Garbo.

Azzadine was well known for his form fitting designs and became globally recognized as the “King Of Cling” during the 1980s, 1990s and the better part of his career.

Alaia was the only notable designer who had no qualms about focusing on few private showings while his peers would consistently compete for best exhibit of their work, during the French and Italian capital`s seasonal fashion frenzy.

The fashion renegade who always wore black Chinese cotton pajamas as a uniform, dressed dignitaries such as Michelle Obama, catwalk icons such as Naomi Campbell, Stephanie Seymour, Cindy Crawford, Yasmeen Ghauri, Elle Macpherson, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista and Karen Alexander.

Compelling artists such as Grace Jones, Tina Turner, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Rihanna, Monica Bellucci, Uma Thurman, Megan Fox, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez and many more.

“A small man but huge in the world of fashion”.

The director general of UNESCO – Audrey Azoulay, a former French culture minister, said:

“Alaia was a “genius weaving links between fashion, architecture and sculpture, creating dresses to highlight women’s bodies”.

NAOMI CAMPBELLRelated imageRelated image

Edward Enninful, Editor- In- Chief of British Vogue said:

“Azzedine Alaia was a true visionary, and a remarkable man”. “He will be deeply missed by all of those who knew and loved him, as well as by the women around the world who wore his clothes”.

“The generosity of his spirit and genius of his designs will never be forgotten.”

Nina Garcia, editor of Elle magazine and a judge on fashion design reality TV programme Project Runway, described Alaia as a “legend and true original”.

“We will miss this creative genius”.

In 2015, while explaining how innately dedicated he is to his ability to perfect his art, Azzedine said:
