  • Social media critic still persists against Tewodros Tsegaye

    People are downplaying the comments suggested by Journalist Tewodros Tsegaye and his colleague about Teddy Afro’s new “Ethiopia” album draft poster and expectations of contents of his melodies in the new album.

    Social media posts are seriously critising the comments of the journalist as it reads: “comments on Teddy Afro album forwarded on Riyot show are totally not expert wise views, it lacks professionalism”.

    Tewodros commented on pictures of the draft poster for the album and he went on to say that, “Teddy Afro songs in the new album must come up with his new and original ideas than sticking to famous personalities as he did before”.

    Facebookers and some social media pages are still resisting the journalist for his comments, but he said in his show about Teddy Afro’s album that “We’ll continue to give our opinions, especially after the album is officially released”.

    Tewodros Tsegaye has a background of Bachelor of Arts in Law from the Addis Abeba University.

  • Four million Ethiopians living with depression: WHO

    Four million Ethiopians are living with depression that put the country second next to Nigeria, a data from World Health Organization (WHO) indicates.

    A data released in 2015 indicated that 48 million Nigerian are the victims of depression.

    The theme for WHO’s World Health Day on April 7, 2017 is “Depression: let’s talk”. According to the latest WHO’s estimates, 322 million people are living with depression worldwide, with the numbers increasing from by more than 18 percent between 2005 and 2015. Close to one in 20 people (4.4 percent) are affected, with depression being more common among women (5.1percent) than men (3.6 percent).
    Dr. Dawit Assefa, General Manager of the Amanuel Specialized Hospital and a Psychiatrist by profession told Sheger FM that depression is a continuous loss of happiness feelings.

    Especially when long-lasting and with moderate or severe intensity, depression may become a serious health condition. It can cause the affected person to suffer greatly and function poorly at work, at school and in the family and social life, according to Dr. Dawit.

    At its worst, depression can lead to suicide. Close to 800, 000 people die due to suicide every year. Suicide is the second leading cause of death in 15-29-year-olds.The last stage of depression is committing suicidal, according to Dr. Dawit

    The number of people living with depression in Ethiopia shows how much little attention and medication have been implemented in Ethiopia, said Dawit.

    Although there are known, effective treatments for depression, fewer than half of those affected in the world (in many countries, fewer than 10 percent) receive such treatments.

    Barriers to effective care include a lack of resources, lack of trained health-care providers, and social stigma associated with mental disorders. Another barrier to effective care is inaccurate assessment. In countries of all income levels, people who are depressed are often not correctly diagnosed, and others who do not have the disorder are too often misdiagnosed and prescribed antidepressants, sates the WHO.

    A temporary depression could be treated by some way of entertainments like walking and seeing movies.

    Dawit advises a person suffers from continuous depression should immediately go to doctors before it reaches to its worst stage.
    Depression is a common mental disorder, characterized by sadness, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, feelings of tiredness, and poor concentration, according to the WHO.

    Depression is the leading cause of disability worldwide, and is a major contributor to the overall global burden of disease.

  • Meet the artist behind Beyonce's pregnancy photo -

    Beyonce's pregnancy announcement portrait is now the most liked Instagram post of all time. But who is the artist behind the image? The photo of Beyonce wearing a veil and cradling her stomach has now been liked over eight million times.

     

    This might not be a big deal for the 35-year-old singer. But it's a huge accomplishment for Awol Erizku, the artist who took the famous photo - and the entire series of pregnancy photos that Beyonce has since uploaded to her website. Here are five things you should know about him. Who is he? Born in Ethiopia, 28-year-old Awol grew up in the South Bronx area of New York.

    In 2014, he graduated from Yale University with a masters in fine art and his work often fuses photography, video installations and sculpture. And while he's now responsible for the most liked picture on Instagram, Awol has a humble following on his own social media accounts. He has a strange way of using social media to share his work If you've tried to find more of his work on Instagram after seeing his portrait of Beyonce, you probably know already that his page is closed for business.

     

    The 28-year-old treats his Instagram account like an art gallery, where he hosts Instagram-only art shows. For example, his account has detail about "gallery" opening hours: timings for when his feed is opened up for public viewing. He combines his art with music With each of his exhibitions, Awol has released what he calls a conceptual mixtape. Think of this as a kind of soundtrack to the artist's latest creations. One of Awol's most played mixes was released alongside a film and photo project called Serendipity, which was a response to the Black Lives Matter movement in America.
