Tribute to the god of football - Pele (1940-2022)



 It is no longer breaking news that Edson Arantes do Nascimento aka Pele the football/soccer god breathed his last on the 29th day of December, 2022. Although he retired from playing football in 1977 before some of us were born, I can remember vividly how the first player I associated with the wonderful game was Pele and to show my last respect, I am writing this tribute to the Legend himself. After all, what would the Sports Health Column of a Blog  be without acknowledging the amazing contribution of this Maestro to the wonderful game of football? 



๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†

Oh great Pele, with a reported 1,283 goals in 1,363 games for country and club sides, and amongst other trophies, 3 FIFA World cups to crown it all, you signed your signature on the memory plates of those who were opportune to watch you live; changed the destiny of Samba forever and whispered your name into the ears of unborn foetuses even before they were birthed and eventually grew to love the game.



You manifested your own manual for the number 10 position; redefined the meaning of dribbling during the wonderful game of football and took style on the field of play to a stratospherically different level. If anyone was going to live their dreams until they became reality on the football pitch and beyond, then it had to be started by you, the one and only Pele!!!



Complications relating to progression of colon (large bowel) cancer might have resulted in your physical body going the way of all the earth but as long as football/soccer continues to exist, the potency of your legacy will increasingly grow stronger and your name mentioned by many generations to come, of lovers of the great sport ⚽!!! Rest in strength Legend.

Compliments of the season

  


Compliments of the season from myself and the rest of the team to “DR KEVWE’S BLOG” readers and “DR KEVWE TV” watchers all around the world. We’ve not been consistent with blogging or Vlogging but some of you have continued to peep back in to encourage /motivate us. Whilst 2022 came with various challenges, one of which was ‘creators block’ for me, there were also wonderful and encouraging aspects to the year. As the activities of the year quickly grind to an end, holding unto the positives and running with the energy into 2023 is a no brainer. We are wishing everyone a happy & prosperous new year in advance. 

The World Bids Farewell To Queen Elizabeth II At The Greatest State Funeral Of Modern Times


 

As the world bids farewell to Queen Elizabeth II in the greatest state funeral of modern times, the solemnity on the streets of the United Kingdom today is unquestionably palpable. 99% of Non-essential Service Providers have shut their doors to pay their last respects to the Queen and the atmosphere at my current location is just mind-blowing, even as Windsor where the state funeral is being held is over 2 hours away. Classical example of a Queen loved by her people to the moon and back, if you ask me.

96 years of a life well lived with over 70 years of a reign that stood the test of time and gained the admiration of many across the length and breath of the globe. Queen Elizabeth II was one of a kind and her devotion to the service of her people will remain as a shining light for exemplary leadership for many many years to come. Adieu great Lilibet

A TRIBUTE TO HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN OF GREATNESS: ELIZABETH II 1926 -2022

 

Source: sky.com

On the 8th of September 2022, I was at work when the news of the death of Queen Elizabeth II sent shock waves across the world. At the ripe age of 96 and after over 70 years of serving your people diligently, you peacefully slept on, for others to continue with the greatness of the legacy that you built over the decades of your existence. The classical example of a life lived to the fullest.

I didn't have the opportunity to meet the Queen in person but one way or the other, she had been introduced to us and remained a constant there after, in all our lives. From the South South Rainforest regions of West Africa, myself and other kids sang and danced to the nursery rhyme that verbally illustrated a "cat going to London to visit the Queen". Social Studies then introduced Colonialism to us and from my understanding via the history books, you inherited a Kingdom whose major international business for many years was Global Trade, exploration and territory acquisition. Some still associate your memory with this business but those who followed your modern reign closely can confirm that, you have a heart of gold filled with nothing but love and kindness through and through. I watched part of the message you gave on your first visit to Dublin and you clearly reflected on how many things could have been approached and done differently, if the hand of time were to be turned back.

The Queen was the embodiment of true service to her people and the commonwealth. Behind all the earthly power and glory, there was a beautiful, compassionate, caring and God fearing woman/mother/grandmother/great grandmother. The current testimonials say it all and it's obviously as clear as day light that, in our life time, there will never be another Queen to take your place in our hearts. Rest in strength great one.

International Women's Day 2022:Can We Break The Bias?

IWD Zoom background via internationalwomensday.com


 Today, Tuesday 8th of March, is International Women's Day 2022 and this year the theme is "BREAK THE BIAS" but amidst all the campaigning and events across the world, the silent question begging for a genuine answer is, can we break the bias? If you were a male or female recruiter mandated to get Experts behind the computers in the office depicted above, will you employ 3 women and 3 men accordingly?

 Will your choices be free of: bias, stereotypes and discrimination? 

Will your choices be: diverse, equitable and inclusive?

Can we break the bias? My personal answer is, YES WE CAN #BreakTheBias and here is how:



If you were born of a woman; have a sister or a daughter, then best time to act is now!



This has nothing to do with who is the head of the family or not! 



Yes we all have to help forge a gender equal world; everything will be much better, wouldn't it?



Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias !!! I hope women all around the world have had a meaningful day's celebration and still doing so. Our heart break for innocent women and children in Ukraine right now. All we can do for you is pray that things get back to normal for you and your husbands, fathers and brothers. Hopefully, some day, we will raise our heads in confidence and say, we all played our roles to #BreakTheBias.

TENNIS:From Uncertainty With Foot Problems To A 21st Grand Slam Tittle - Vamos' Nadal!

 


It's been a few weeks since Rafael Nadal pulled off what appeared to be an astonishing miracle at the 2022 Men's Tennis single finals of the Australian Open Tournament, coming back from 2 sets down to beat Daniil Medvedev, the athletic, never-say-die Russian, in a 5-set show down, despite suffering from severe worsening of what has been reported to be a chronic left foot problem. The recurrent left foot pain warranted Specialist attention and left the now 21-Grand Slam titles winner in doubt about his future as a Tennis player. The pictures and videos he posted to celebrate on Instagram say it all.



Following a series of instagram posts towards the end of last year, die hard Rafael fans began to panic but somehow, the Champ sounded positive about coming back and that's exactly what he did. See one of his instagram posts below about the foot problem.


I don't have the exact details of what happened to Rafael's left foot. I have come across various diagnoses in different websites that I cannot verify, thus not comfortable to comment about these. One thing I know is that, he was in quite some pain, as a result of the body's reaction to injury of some sort in the foot; a process we refer to as inflammation in Medicine. Whether "Kohler's disease" or some sort of "avascular necrosis of the Navicular bone", the most important thing is that, the Team of Specialists did an outstanding job and Rafael recovered excellently. The foot, just like any other part of the body, can be very complex and even the slightest of problems can lead to poor/deterioration of mobility and that's almost always bad news for sports personalities.

Whatever the case may have been, Rafael Nadal has his second Norman Brooks challenge cup trophy/ his 21st Grand Slam title chilling in his museum and if you listened to his speech, he promised to continue to fight for more, so VAMOS' NADAL!

2022:Happy New Year World

 


This is to wish all of "DR KEVWE'S BLOG" Readers, friends and well wishers a very Happy and safe New Year ahead. We hope that 2022 brings you all you wish and pray for. From optimal health seeking behaviours to perfecting your craft and business; we hope you have a fulfilled year ahead. 2021 was an interesting year and in so many quarters, at some point, things almost came to a stand still because of the COVID-19 Pandemic. In Healthcare, we were so busy that, I developed severe writers apathy/writers block and I am sure this might have been the case with many people in various key sectors of the various polities of the world. We hope and pray that, the worst is over and everything that experienced a setback in 2021 will bloom and flourish in this 2022 and onwards.
