Not only to create awareness but to solicit for funds to support those living with the disease.
Every year, over 1.38 million people get breast cancer. Males must be aware that breast cancer can also happen to them. Although you can lose your life after getting this disease, early detection of it saves more lives.

There was a heavy vehicular traffic today at some places like Kaneshie, Circle, Darkuman junction, Darkuman Kokompe and Cantonment which can all be found in the Greater Accra region.
The traffic occurred as a result of the gutters beside the roads which got flooded. Supposedly it rained in the morning, most students and workers would have been late to either their various schools or workplaces.
At some part of Cantonment, one private car was pushed into a gutter by one taxi driver. The driver was not injured since the gutter was not all that deep.
Around 6:00pm, the traffic became more heavier than around 3:00pm to 4:00pm. The police personnels at the road sides in a way were able to control the movement of the vehicles which later on reduced the traffic.
The pre-history is the period before man became literate. Pre-history includes the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. Societies without written records preserved their history through stories and myths. The nature and events of pre-history can be reconstructed through Archaeology, which examines the material evidence left behind by the peoples of the past: dwellings, tools and everyday materials.
For the study of pre-history, Archaeology is the main source of information. The period extends from 1,000,000 BC to about 500 BC. The pre-history is divided into four phases:
1. The Early Stone Age (1000,000 BC- 50,000 BC.
2. The Middle Stone Age (50,000 BC_ 10,000BC)
3.The Late Stone Age I (hunting and food gathering) (10,000 BC – 4,000 BC)
4. The Late Stone Age II (farming) (4,000 BC -500 BC).
Tracing the origin of man is very difficult because two explanations have been discovered.
1. The Religious ( Biblical) belief (explanation).
2. The scientific explanation (Darwin’s theory of evolution of man).
Until 1859, the origin of man has always been biblical. The explanation can be found in the book of Genesis 1:1-31 and Genesis 2:1-25. The chapter one verse twenty- six indicates how God said, let us make man in our own image, that is after our likeness and for him to have dominion over every creature on this earth. Likewise the chapter two verse seven shows how the Lord God Almighty formed man out of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils to get life. From verse twenty -one downwards shows how God created or formed a woman out of a man.
The scientific explanation of the evolution of man depends on Charles Robert Darwin’s theory of evolution of man. Charles Robert Darwin is a British naturalist whose theory stirred up so much controversy in the world , particularly in christiandom because his history- EVOLUTION OF MAN – has a totally different concept and meaning: far different from the biblical account/ explanation which universally says that man was created by God and put in the Garden of Eden.
According to the scientific explanation, man was like an “Ape” and with time he developed to become a man called “Homo Sapiens” or “thinking man”. At this stage, man began to reason and differentiate the good from the bad. According to Archaeologists, Homo Sapiens has been in existence for about 50,000 years. Again, they believe that the “Ape-man” evolved and changed until he became “Homo(man) and modern man.
In 1859, Charles Robert Darwin published a book titled “Origins of the Species” in which he criticized the Christian teachings on creation of man which says that God used dust or sand to create man in his own image at the Garden of Eden. According to him, organisms produce more offsprings than nature can support. For this reason, the organisms have to compete or struggle among themselves for the limited resources offered by nature. Those who are successful are those who would inhabit the environment and the unsuccessful would disappear. This is the theory of “the survival of the fittest”
In another book he published in 1871, “The Descent of man”, he expressed that man evolved from a primitive “monkey-like” animal in the tropic of Africa.
The earliest proof of human culture in the world was discovered in Africa in 1959,at the site of Olduvai Gorge in Northern Tanzania in Eastern Rift Valley. The discovery was made by the Archaeologists Dr. and Mrs. Leakey
