NOCTURNAL ENURESIS

She picked up her phone—a well-deserved break after a long day. Her colleagues were leaving already, but she would be here for some hours more, as always. Scrolling through her Facebook feed, her eyes caught a video reposted by one of her friends, and she started to watch.  “I was 21 when I stopped bedwetting…”  She shut her eyes and paused the video. No. It could not be. Normal human beings do not wet the bed into adulthood. Normal human…

SPORTS IN UIMSA: A NEGLECTED AFFAIR

Surely, it’s the hope that kills! After an almost endless bout of anticipation, the advertised weekend-only U-lympics (UIMSA Olympics) scheduled to start on Saturday 16th October, has been rescheduled for the 60th Health Week. This was confirmed in a heart-wrenching memo released by the executive council on Monday. This didn’t come as a shock as we’re used to expecting so little when it comes to sports in UIMSA. When quizzed about what brought about the change in a chat with…

FOOTBALL RECAP: WEEKEND OF 16TH OCTOBER

Bayern: emphatic as usual – a 5-1 win at Leverkusen, and Bayern are showing no signs of taking their feet off the pedal anytime soon. Manchester City: routine 2-0 home victory over Burnley keeps the chase alive! The Citizens remain 2 points behind leaders, Chelsea, and are enjoying a consistent string of good results so far, after a rather below-par start to the season. Kelvin De Bruyne sealed the victory after Bernardo Silva’s early opening strike, keeping things rosy for…

DEMOCRACY IN 2k22: IS NAPOLEON ALWAYS RIGHT?

For lovers of literature and written words, George Orwell’s Animal Farm is more than just another fiction. It is a political satire – a graphical juxtaposition of the drama and brouhaha that often come alongside the politicking and democratic governance of any nation or group of people. It is from this classic of Orwell I would love to lend a picture – one that might, perhaps, bear some semblance to the governance of the MBBS Class 2k22, University of Ibadan. Old Major…

HOW TO DEAL WITH FEAR

Fear is an unpleasant feeling of apprehension or anxiety caused by the presence or anticipation of danger. It is an emotion triggered by the threat of some form of harm. It is sometimes manifested in bravado or symptoms of anxiety and prompting a decision to fight the threat or escape from it.  Imagine you are to give a public speech without preparation, or you have a biochemistry test that you haven’t prepared for at all the next day, you would…

HEALTHCARE IN 2050

The year is 2050. You open your eye to a new day. Before you are fully awake, your virtual assistant is ready to greet you “good morning Sols, you had 1hr 48min of deep sleep last night. That’s very good. It will make you more energetic today. Are you ready for a full-body scanning?” You stand up in your room for the body scan. Your scanner scans you and compares today’s data with not only your health history but also…

WHO ARE YOU?

Who are you? Right here, right now, if I ask you this question, what will you say? I am not going to give you time to think about it, but I do expect an articulate answer, one that will cover the different aspects that make you, you. Can you answer this? I realized some time ago that I wouldn’t have been able to answer this question expressively on the spot, not like I would a book I just read or…

2021 JCI FOPA AWARDS

I was fortunate to be present at the Fifteen Outstanding Personality Award organised by the Junior Chamber International, University of Ibadan Chapter. The fifteenth edition of this award took place at the famous Trenchard Hall on Saturday, 2nd October 2021. Just before I was chosen to be the representative of UIMSA Preclinical Press, my typical Saturday is usually a bland one characterised by intense rest, movie binge-watching and football. However, this one turned out different as I got to try…
