Intel Makes Changes To How Antivirus Programs Scan Your Machine.Improved Performance:Details

If you are a frequent user of a computer you are moat likely to be familiar with the term computer Antivirus Software.These are computer programs that are used to detect, prevent and remove harmful software from your computer.examples of antivirus software are Avast Antivirus Software and Kerpsersky Computer security.These modern antivirus programs protects the users computer from a variety of threats such as malicious browser helper objects,rootkits, back-doors,Trojan horses, worms, adware among other threats.

These anti malicious software running on a computer affects the performance of a computer. This is because the antivirus software requires CPU resources to scan the computer and this adversely affects performance of the computer hence slowing it down.
The company Intel is finally providing a solution to this problem by allowing virus scanners to use Integrated Graphics chip sets to scan for threats.This will allow a machine to save battery life and improve its performance.This is set to reduce CPU utilization from 20 Percent to 2 Percent.

Intel is currently working with Microsoft to implement this change with Microsoft already using the technology in Windows Defender Advanced Protection in April 2018.
With these new changes we are finally optimistic of our computers being secure and performing optimally.

Google Planning to Ban Cryptocurrency Adverts

The tech giant Google is planning to ban cryptocurrecny related adverts from its platform. Google is updating its financial services ads related content on their platforms. The crackdown also applies to Wallets, Initial Coin Offerings and ads on trading advice.Google is planning to roll out this update in June 2018 following Facebook's ban that was also announced early this year. The two companies feel that they have seen too many ads related to cryptocurrencies that may cause consumer harm.
Even though cryptocurrency ,market has generated a lot  of wealth for many people this field still remains vastly uncontrolled. This is a major concern as it may lead to very high profile scams.This news came as Google released its annual trust and safety ads report.
Google has come to this conclusion after taking down more than 3.2 billion ads that violated their policies.
It is understandable why google may want to make the ads space safer for its users as Google's parent company Alphabet gets 84% of its earnings from advertising.

US Secretary of State Fired by Trump after Visit to Kenya!!

Photo Courtesy Standard Digital: Rex Tillerson in Kenya

The U.S Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has been ousted by the U.S President Donald Trump. The President plans on replacing Tillerson with the CIA Director Mike Pompeo.Trump asked him to step aside. This cut short his visit to Kenya as he had to return to Washington DC immediately to address more "pressing matters". The tension between the president and his top diplomat has been growing for the past few months and reached breaking point last week when he finally asked Tillerson to step aside amid on going delicate negotiations  with North Korea. This signifies a major change to the President's national security team at such a crucial time.

The reason for his firing still remains unclear. According to the spokesperson for the Secretary of state Rex Tillerson had no idea why he was fired.
The Director of the Criminal Intelligence Agency, Mike Pompeo will replace Rex Tillerson while the current deputy Director of the CIA ,Gina Haspel will succeed Mike Pompeo as Director of the CIA making her the first female to ever head the CIA since it was formed.
However the Trump nominees will still have to go through the Senate for confirmation.Tillerson felt that he was left out of the loop when President Trump aggreed to meet North Korea Leader .He had insisted on a diplomatic approach on the nuclear stand off between the U.S and North Korea.Pompeo, who had developed a good rapport with the President of the US as the Director of the CIA has long been rumoured as Tillerson's replacement. Trump's latest move confirms this rumour.Tillersons removal had been wildly anticipated and even had a nickname "Rexit".This rumor had been made even stronger in November 2017 when NBC news reported that Tillerson had called Trump a "moron".

10 Things to do to Make your man beg for a sleepover

So girls let us make this very straight : never let any man sleepover at your place. you are at no one point allowed to serve food,  wash dishes and give a bombass sex in one place.  Let it all be that when you break up, the only loss you encounter is your vajayjay's elasticity.  Rule number two,  don't have sex with  a man more than a night.  When you sleep and wake up,  it's your time to get moving.  Don't wife yourself to a man who doesn't have a ring. 
There is no life without a woman.  They need us. It's fine,  they don't want commitment, let him go buy a baby in the hospital.  The following are top ten things you should do in a sleepover.

1. Arrive late
Simply because he invited you over,  you don't have to arrive there at in the morning. This is for the safety of your nails and your restrictions from doing wifely duties on a girlfriend contaract. Think of it, the earlier you get there the more you face the temptation of giving him just a hand job and a hand in his dirty dishes because you want to prove how feminine you are.  The less time you spend with him, the better.

2. Carry a purse, small enough to fit an extra thong
Your dowry has not yet been paid.  So no big baskets. You want to have an extra of everything, shoes,  clothes, hats, coat. It's exhausting.  You are practically moving into his house even if it's fwd-arrangement. The next time he will want to come to your place just to get rid of you when he wants to. Let him buy that new toothbrush for you, and make sure you carry it back home.  Don't let another woman use it to lie her baby hair.
3.  Eat wash, your face and go to 'sleep'
Enough with long stories.  Let him talk. Let him do his things.  Take your time as if you are studying him,  let him play his playlist, his TV station.  If he bore you too much,  give him a sloppy head.  And it's true what they say,  the noisier the head,  the faster he gonna shoot.  If not,  you might be really demotivated with a painful neck. After your prayer partnership,  go to sleep.  Cuddles is for your teddy bear.
4. Remove your clothes,  arrange and keep them neatly and go naked in bed
He knows you need a T-shirt.  If he won't give you,  sleep with a curve on your back. Round two should not come anything earlier than midnight. They start sleeping at 2am, this is the time to start your coup.  Be dirty and be nasty.  Touch him,  caress him,  massage his big belly. Make it awkward for him that you want to fuck him.  Then do it.  Play with that joystick as if you are possessed by a black stallion.  Do it how you want it,  feel it,  fill it in you,  moan,  groan, at least once in a while call his name.  Nothing more. Don't ask silly questions like "ni tamu?" and don't even start your confessions such as "nakupenda". Do it like its business,  touch yourself once in a while.  Do it so sexily that he will want to be your hands.  Don't get off until you come.  Wake up,  go to the bathroom,  wash your cat with some cold water and go back to bed. 
5. Good morning head
Let the first handshake he has is from his head. Massage the little guy in agony,  like you will dearly miss him.  After that say goodbye.  6.30 should find you saying your goodbyes. No morning sex. He had enough of it at night.  You are no longer horny and you also need to go back to your place. You just came to sleep and now that's off the hook, go home.
6. Don't ask for transport
Don't spend where it's not needed.  Don't travel to rongai from Kahawa to go eat chapati madondo . The cost of coming and going back home to your place should be equal to the cost of food you eat at his place.  If it's a deficit of 100 Bob,  ask 100bob for fare. If you had chicken barbeque and more,  pay your own fare. 
7.Dont text
Yes don't get into the matatu and start texting.  "That was the best night,  oh sex"  saying this doesn't add an A to your sex game.  If it was bad,  that's it. If it was good,  no need for talking about it.  Pillowtalk is only for Zayn Malik,  and he ain't a Kenyan . Get home,  text him you are home,  and get busy.  Don't talk about the sex,  in fact act like it never happened.
8. Don't plan for another sleepover for at least 5 days
self explanatory.  Stop wishing to go back and take mirror selfie in him house.  Be humble, accept what you have and stay at your place.  A normal man takes around two weeks to be totally horny again,  so use your mathematics. The best man to fuck is a horny Man. He will work as if he is fighting with his juices out of his body and at that time they will think of nothing better.  Win win for both of you.
9. Don't leave anything
Yes.  No ' I forgot excuse'. Take everything of yours and leave no woman trace of you. You will be surprised how much a man wants someone who doesn't want him. It their animal instinct.  You just have to reverse it on them. Don't leave your toothbrush. Nor your panty under the bed,  or your hairclip next to him TV or couch.  Carry everything with you. 
10. Alternate
Don't alternate men.  Alternate the things you do. Today is a sleepover,  next time is a rave,  then a movie.  A wife's duty is to stay at his home and cook his food,  wash his clothes,  give him unlimited sex.  Yours is to do girls and boys things together.  Watch football,  go window shopping, eat out. Let him not scare you that you are not a wife material.  Of course you wear clean clothes,  you really fat and eating healthy, and you have younger siblings.  That's proof enough.

That was on the28th of Janury when Wasafi records had an event to reveal their latest signing.Diamond Platinumz and his ex ,Wema Sepetu ,were present. In a lengthy rant on social media, she expresses her disappointment on her husband who has been involved in many scandals since their marriage kicked off. She expected Diamond to be more cautious with women since he became a family man but he does not learn from any of the scandals he has had with many women at all.

He still does the things a married man should not even be thinking about and expects his dear wife to be cool with it. Zari says the man has continued to disrespect her in public and she is not having that anymore. She finally decided to let the man go and live her life. Since this is a family marred with so many scandals, we are sure this is not the end but just the beginning since they have kids together and the marriage has not even lasted a full year without issues springing up most of the time.

This incident made Zari, Diamonds beloved wife block him immediately after the video of Diamond and Wema Sepetu surfaced. Here is what Zari had to say about the video.

Lakini wewe unaendelea tuu, like I can’t even explain it,” said zari.

Advantages And Disadvantages of Marijuana (weed/pot)

Marijuana or better known as “weed” is the slang word used to refer to quantities of the cannabis plant which is the oldest psychoactive substance used by the human race. Other popular names it also goes by are pot, Mary Jane and ganja. Weed is made from the cannabis plant. Cannabis has three strains namely; Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis.

 The compound in weed that makes you “high” is called THC which is an acronym for tetrahydrocannabinol. THC is responsible for the psychoactive way one feels after using the drug. When you ingest weed, the THC binds with the cannaboid receptors and you also start feeling high when it binds with the brain regions that are responsible for pleasure, time, perception and pain. This sparks a chemical reaction that stimulates the production of dopamine which is a brain chemical that makes the user “feel good or high”.

Brief History of Marijuana

It was a popular medicinal drug in the USA during the 1800s.This however changed in the 1900s as the drug was now associated with immigrants who were fond of smoking the drug for recreational purposes. During this time (1900s), most immigrants, who were mostly Mexicans had a lot of marijuana cases which forced most anti-immigrant groups to rally for the prohibition of the drug leading to its illegalisation by 1930 with around 24 states in the US banning the drug. By 1937 congress passed the Marijuana Tax Act which effectively banned pot except for a few medicinal purposes only.
As the war on marijuana raged on, the Narcotics Control Act and Boggs Act came up with the penalties for possession of marijuana for first time offenders one was to be given a 2-10 year sentence and a $20,000 fine.
In the recent years states have however been less aggressive on marijuana use with 26 states now having the drug legalised for medicinal use by 2017.

More on how Marijuana Affects Your Brain and Body

Even though marijuana has both medical and recreational uses, it can also be detrimental to health that is specifically to our brains and bodies. This is mainly because most of the effects of THC are registered in the brain where THC reacts with receptors of the brain which I referred to earlier as cannabinoid receptors. Another intriguing fact is that our bodies actually produces chemicals similar to THC which are used by the brain during normal function.

THC usually co-opts these natural ways to produce most of the effects of this natural phenomenon, that is the production of dopamine.
Here are some of the bottlenecks of using marijuana.

Memory Formation Blockage

When THC acts in the hippocampus of the brain it changes the way information is processed and how memory in the brain is formed. For a teenage user the effects of memory blockage may be seen in early adulthood. In early adulthood it causes cognitive impairment.

Causes Imbalance

When THC is ingested, it interferes with the brain areas called cerebellum and basal ganglia which is the centre for balance, posture, coordination and reaction time. This makes the user to have a hard time talking and walking properly. It can also impact the user’s ability to drive.

Increased Depression

Due to the fact that most people use the drug as a way to reduce depression, it has been largely assumed that most weed smokers are usually people who are depressed and may be looking for a way to relax and get their minds off things. A study from Netherlands shows that smoking cannabis increases the risk of depression for young adults who have vulnerability to mental sickness. It has been established that the long term usage of the drug increases depression for people with the serotonin gene which is responsible for the increased risk of depression.

Psychosis, Anxiety and Panic

A small percentage of cannabis smokers usually react with intense anxiety and panic after taking the drug. Users who have taken large doses of the drug may experience acute psychosis which usually causes hallucinations and sometimes loss of sense of identity.

Makes us feel “High”

This is due to the effect of THC which makes the brain to release dopamine which is usually associated with the body’s reward system. Dopamine makes you feel good when you do things that are good to ensure your survival and your offspring. These good things may include sex.

Controls Epileptic seizures

A study done on rats in the Commonwealth University showed that epileptic rats given extract of cannabis and synthetic marijuana relieved the rats of the epileptic seizures for about 10 hours. This is made possible by the binding of the THC to the brain cells responsible for excitability which in turn causes relaxation.

Treats Inflammatory Bowel Diseases

Marijuana use is a health plus for people with inflammatory diseases like Crohn’s disease. The chemicals in marijuana (according to University of Nottingham researchers) react with body cells responsible for gut formation and immune responses. THC increases the permeability of the intestines and consequently blocking out the bacterial agents responsible for bowel diseases from getting in. This makes the intestinal cells to bond together.

Slows Development of Alzheimer’s disease and stops cancer from spreading

Studies done show that THC slows the formation of amyloid plaques by blocking the formation of some enzymes in the brain which are responsible for the formation of the said amyloid plaques. These plaques are responsible for Alzheimer’s disease and kill brain cells. The use of marijuana slows down the formation of these plaques consequently slowing down the development of the disease.
Another chemical in Marijuana called cannibidiol prevents the further spread of marijuana by turning off a gene called Id-1.This gene is used by cancer to spread throughout the body. Cancer uses this mechanism to spread to other parts of the body as it makes more copies of this gene even faster than the cancerous cells themselves to help the disease spread faster. Studies in breast cancer show that marijuana use reduced the cells with gene Id-1 expression hence reducing the spread of cancer to the breasts.

Positive And Negative Effects of Masturbation

Masturbation is the stimulation of genitals with the hand for sexual pleasure. In Africa the act is highly loathed by the community and is never discussed openly. A teenager caught masturbating is considered very promiscuous. It’s even worse for girls, this act may earn you a visit to traditional healers for what they call “divine intervention”. Some even go the nine yards and end up circumcising girls i.e. female genital mutilation in an effort to lower her libido and the risk of sexual promiscuity.
What if I told you that masturbation has both positive and negative effects?

 Any person growing up usually feels the urge of exploring their bodies. Some do it for sexual pleasure and to release sexual tension. There have been myths about masturbation for a long time but despite these myths it actually has no physically harmful side effects. Excessive masturbation however may be unhealthy in terms of your relationships with other people and your everyday life. It’s fun, normal and healthy to masturbate but not overdoing it.
Masturbation may have negative side effects when one suffers chronic masturbation or if one feels too guilty for doing it.

Guilty Conscience

This is usually accrued to cultural, spiritual and religious beliefs. One may feel guilty because the society treats it as a dirty and shameful act. Some may make fun of you for being a “wanker” and you may even become the laughing stock of your school, workplace or even your own family. If you feel this way about the act its advisable that you talk to someone about how you feel so that they help you move past the guilt. Sharing is always advised. You may end up meeting others with the same problem and you can all work together to move past the guilt. Therapists that specialize in sexual health may be the best option if you can afford one.


This may be the number one problem for those who masturbate. This is usually a problem especially if you spend too much time masturbating as it may cause you to skip your daily schedule, you may miss going to work or school and the worst if you have plans with your girlfriend or boyfriend you may end up ignoring them and end up messing up your relationship with them.

The guilt may also make you miss social events and gatherings because you feel “dirty”. It also lowers your productivity if you have a demanding job. In the case of your loved ones you may end up not paying attention to their needs.
If you have genuine concerns about addiction you are advised to speak to your doctor as soon as possible. Also whenever you feel the urge to engage in the act try and replace the activity with other things that can help you generally as a person and avoid wasting most of your time yanking your genitals around.

Sexual sensitivity

Masturbation among men and women has been linked to an increased desire , arousal and overall sexual function . It increases lubrication in women and better erectile;e function for men. However on the flip side for men it may affect sexual sensitivity for men during sex with a female .

This is because of the tight grip on the penis during masturbation hence decreases sensation during normal sexual intercourse with a lady. Sexual health experts recommend changing your masturbation technique during the action to restore sensitivity during normal sexual intercourse.

Overall Benefits 

It’s a healthy exercise and has both physical and mental benefits. Firstly, it may help you relive stress and have a better good night sleep. It also boosts your mood and relaxes your mind. For ladies it helps also to relive cramps. From the constant practice it may also help you have better sex and also have a better understanding of your sexual needs.
For men it may reduce your chances for prostate cancer due to regular ejaculation. Women during pregnancy may have heightened sexual desire due to hormonal changes in their bodies. It’s a very safe way to release sexual tension during pregnancy. However, for women with high risk pregnancies this not advised as it may increase their chances of labor.

Masturbation is therefore a safe and healthy natural way of improving one’s life in many ways. It is not as bad as people take it to be. It has benefits for your mind and body at large and may also be the safest sex because it lowers the risk of contracting diseases propagated through sharing of sexual fluids. Therefore, everybody should feel free to enjoy self-pleasure of masturbation.
