The 3rd edition of ‘Being A Woman’ workshop, an Emily God’s Presence’s project, was held yesterday, with a call on women to fight for the advancement of the family.
The workshop which had as its theme; “The Spear and Spindle: Should Women Fight?,” was held at the Elechi Amadi Faculty of Humanities’ auditorium, Abuja Campus, University of Port Harcourt.
Addressing participants, Dr Emily God’s Presence, the convener of the workshop, called on women all over the world to rise up to the responsibility of fighting for the advancement of their families, stating that once family is carried, along society is carried along.
Dr God’s Presence used the occasion of the workshop to also call for a good use of the spear, which according to her, represents masculine power, strength and authority, as an instrument of defence of the homefront and emblem of hardwork worthy of emulation by their growing sons, instead of using same as a weapon of destruction to scare the children from their fatherly nest into the blood-sucking embrace of deviants, cultists and miscreants.
Speaking also, the Mother of the Occasion and President of the University of Port Harcourt Women Association (UPWA), Mrs Ezinne Joy Lale charged parents to train their children up in the fear of God by ensuring that they were properly dressed at all time to avoid any tendency of rape of the girl-child, adding that they might not appreciate all the scolding initially, but would, when they are grown up.
She stated that due to stigmatization associated with rape, it was difficult for its victims to report such incidences, hence she charged all to break out of the silence and report such cases of rape in order for them to get their rightful place in the society.
She also enjoined participants to speak out against child marriage. Describing a child as one below the age of 18, Mrs Lale said such a one does not have what it takes to handle the instruments of marriage and so must not be pushed into emotional trauma by being subjected to early marriage.
In her analysis of the stress and strains of pregnancy, Mrs Lale said a female child below 18 years cannot be said to be prepared to answer all the questions about parenthood. She explained that when a child trains another child, the product is a social misfit.
She thus called on mothers to put down their feet and train their children so they do not end up becoming kidnappers, cultists, among others.
Meanwhile the Rivers State Deputy Governor, Dr Ipalibo Harry Banigo, has lauded the convener of “Being A Woman” Workshop, Dr Emily God’s Presence for contributing meaningfully to the advancement of women in the Society.
Dr Banigo made this known in a speech she presented through her Special Adviser on Social Media and Research, Ukinebo Assemota. In her words
“I want to personally say “thank you” to Dr Emily God’s Presence for setting up this workshop to empower women. I like to believe that from this programme many women participants will come out much better than they were.
She expressed joy that women are breaking limits now than before as they are positively contributing significantly and meaningfully to the progress of their children, families, societies and country at large, she charge women to see themselves as their own facilitators, motivators and inspiration, hence were in the best position to help themselves than the men.
Dr Banigo described the theme of the workshop as appropriate and therefore, called on concerned key players to say ‘NO’ to child trafficking, ‘NO’ to cultism, ‘NO’ to youth restiveness, and ‘NO’ to violence against women and girls, adding that all must ensure to protect Rivers State.
It would be recalled that the ‘Being A Woman Workshop is one of the many projects under the Emily God’s Presence Project instituted three years ago and provides a platform for all women from all professions and fields of endeavours to share their experiences and success stories to help challenge women to be dogged contributors to human and social development in the society.’

What to Look for in a Marijuana Smoking Device
Though there are various ways to enjoy marijuana, smoking remains the most popular way to get high. This method also happens to have the most devices available.
When buying a smoking device, you must get a high-quality product. Not all apparatuses are made the same way and provide the same doses. Various studies prove that the device you use is equally important as the weed itself and can make the overall smoking experience better.
Buying a suitable smoking device is all about understanding your preferences and tailoring accessories accordingly.
The Main Types of Pipes
There are many ways for cannabis users to smoke marijuana. A hand pipe, also known as a dry pipe or bowl, is a convenient and easy method to smoke weed, especially for people who occasionally smoke. Featuring a small chamber, a hand pipe delivers harsher hits than other types of marijuana pipes.
On the other hand, a water pipe or a bong is ideal for experienced users. From small designs to large, water pipes, unlike hand pipes, contain specific chambers to hold water and deliver a smoother experience.
The one-hitter is a tiny and discrete pipe designed for a single inhalation or, as the name suggests, one hit. One-hitters are popular because they help users control the dosage of their marijuana intake.
And then, there are portable vape or vape pens that offer a smoke-free experience. Vape pens are a discreet way of getting your fix when on the go.
How To Choose A Good Dry Pipe
Whether you are looking to get high at home or while hanging out with friends, pipes make consuming cannabis much easier and quicker than packing blunts or rolling joints. As they are practical, every marijuana user must have at least one good dry pipe. With so many different pipes available at various price ranges, you should consider multiple factors to find a suitable dry pipe.
The first thing you should consider is size. The size directly translates to portability. For those who travel a lot, a pipe smaller in size might be ideal. In contrast, if you plan to use the dry pipe as a tabletop centerpiece, you might want something bigger.
Additionally, smoking pipes are made from different materials. While commonly made from glass, marijuana smoking pipes can also be made from wood, metal, or ceramic. Typically, glass pipes are the best option for marijuana smokers as you will be treated to smooth and flavorful smoke regardless of the strain.
You should also take into consideration your budget when looking to buy a marijuana dry pipe. Remember that a low price doesn’t always translate to a low-quality product. You will still be able to land some great deals if you look around.
How To Choose A Good Water Pipe
To find a good water pipe, size is the first thing you should consider. If you are passing the bong with your friends, a larger bong might be a better option. On the other hand, if it is for more personal use, choose a smaller one.
Secondly, think about the material. Cannabis users often prefer glass as it provides the cleanest and the purest-tasting hits. However, it can easily break and is usually pricey. So, for a rowdier situation, an acrylic water pipe might be a better option.
How To Choose A Good One Hitter
If you are looking to buy a one-hitter, the pipe’s material is the primary concern as one-hitters are all generally the same size. The material can affect flavor and durability, so you must choose wisely. The common materials used to make one-hitters are glass, acrylic, and metal.
One-hitters made from glass offer an unparalleled flavor, while those made from acrylic and metal can make the hit less flavorful.
Furthermore, one-hitters highlight various features like a removable bowl, self-ashing mechanism, design that allows for easier cleaning, and heat resistance.
How To Choose A Good Portable Vape
Unlike desktop vapes, portable vapes are easy to carry around and use discreetly. What’s more, they tend to be less expensive and versatile, making them an ideal option for beginners. When looking for a portable vape pen, you should consider if they are made for vaping dry herb or wax.
The next thing you should consider is battery life. This factor is vital if you are on the go without access to a device charger. A few vaporizers come with external batteries, while others have long battery lives.
Furthermore, you should consider things like temperature control and the type of heating—conduction or convection. Also, see if the vape pen is easy to clean or not. Lastly, look at the price. As you will be holding onto your vaporizer for a while, it is a good idea to invest in a quality product from a certified seller like WeedSmart, a Canadian marijuana dispensary.
Explore the Arena of Marijuana Smoking Devices
With a wide array of marijuana smoking devices available on the market, it might be daunting to decide the one that’s best for you. The right choice for you will depend on your needs and what you think might be the best for you. If you don’t like a specific device’s feel, you can always look for other options.
