Women are more addicted to smartphones than men...


Smartphone addiction. You must have heard this phrase a lot nowadays. According to almost every parent their kid is suffering from it, even elders have got into the ‘human rattrap’ of smartphones. You might also be one of them. But what you have not heard is that women are more susceptible to smartphone addiction than men.
A South Korean survey of 1,236 students at six colleges in Suwon, Gyeonggi province conducted by Professor Chang Jae-yeon of Ajou University, shows us that 50 percent of women use their smartphone for four hours or more comparing with just 29.4 percent of men using it for the same time. Also, the percentage of women using smartphones for six hours a day was 22.9 percent and that of men was 10.8 percent. It is believed that women mostly use their smartphone for social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, etc.
​"We expect adolescents are likely to show similar results. Female users are advised to consciously put their phones out of their reach from time to time," Chang said in a paper published in the journal Public Health Reports.
While men usually use their phones only during free time and breaks, women use it even while doing other activities like talking to others.
Whatever be the percentages, smartphone addiction is not good for anyone. While smartphones do have pretty good advantages and help us in a million ways, if it interferes with our daily routine or simple things like not being able to have a conversation with someone physically present in front us, it’s got to stop. Time to put your smartphones aside and start living in the real world!

Sexual Assault: Catwoman defends herself against Batman

I decided to do this quick recount before it becomes over taking by event…ehm, before I forget to do so. No time to read over for errors. I'm serving it fresh and hot. On this fateful day, I had decided to join the coaster bus ride home, for two reasons, it’s got better seats and arrangement than the popular yellow buses (LT and Paragon), it would also arrive faster at my destination, albeit its more expensive than the yellow buses. I sat down, I can’t say in peace though, you can hardly be on the street of Lagos and expect that tranquility of Beverly Hills, as commuters strolled into the bus indecisively. It took a while before the bus got filled and ready to go. A young lady, had been in the bus for as long as I had been, some few seats behind me, surrounded by male commuters, she was the only female within 3 rows. The journey started slowly, because at this time of the day in Lagos everything goes slowly. The journey started uneventful, besides the occasional ranting of passeng…
