Astrology, humbug or science? Even if you don’t believe in fortune telling, everyone has read some sort of daily horoscope before, it is fun and entertaining; sometimes it totally relates to one’s personal situation. Some go further and say that the Zodiac Sign not only determines your character, success in work and relationships but also your food preferences and which foods are beneficial or harmful for your well being.

Hellofood takes your wellbeing very seriously and conducted a research together with central and eastern European psychologists on specifics of different star signs and their relationship with eating habits.

Aries

They are brave and honest and often considered as insensitive people, but this does not apply to their food preferences. You cannot go wrong with Aries if you raise the topic of good wine and dishes. They favor foods in red, green and everything spicy.

Aries eat: brown rice, bananas, fruit juices, olives, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, cucumbers, spinach, beans, lentils, walnuts, figs, garlic and mustard. Foods to avoid: salt and alcohol.

Taurus

The Taurus is steady, stubborn, passionate and disciplined. People of this sign have a passion for luxury. They prefer the best foods that can be found in stores and restaurants, like risotto with black truffles, oysters, and lobster served with champagne.

Taurus eat: blueberries, asparagus, beefs, cauliflower, cucumbers, spinach, onions, radishes, and squash. Foods to avoid: rich and heavy foods and excessive amounts of carbohydrates.

Gemini

People under this star sign are fearless, creative, fun and sometimes large rebels. They love travelling and new experiences. They love all foods in yellow, green, orange, and even more the exotic cuisine – Moroccan and Caribbean.

The Gemini eats: Plums, oranges, grapefruit, grape juice, raisins, apples, lettuce, spinach, carrots, and celery. Things to avoid: coffee and root vegetables such as potatoes.

Cancer

Cancer is one of the most sensitive and emotional zodiac sign. They like to feel protected and prefer domesticity. They prefer the light flavors and creamy texture. French cuisine is best for them, especially prepared at home.

Cancers eat whole grain rye, rice, oats, fruits, bananas, steamed vegetables, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, tomatoes, beets, squash, cucumbers, beans and natural sugars. They should avoid fatty foods, salt, sweet and refined sugar.

Leo

The lion is one of the strongest signs of zodiac. They like to command and keep things in theirown hands. They can be extremely arrogant, but extremely fun. Thanks to their ruling planet, Sun, they prefer fiery colors – orange, yellow, red. Adequate food is mish-mash or spicy chicken with lots of paprika. They eat whole grains, rice, citrus fruits, apples, potatoes, carrots and radishes. They should avoid dairy products.

Virgo

Virgo are analytical, practical perfectionists and may be critical. They weigh the pros and cons very carefully before any decision. The representatives of the zodiac sign Virgo are the best cooks. However, they do not like to experiment and rely on well-known foods.

Nile Special ‘No Excuse’ Campaign to highlight Sexual Harassment  

Published

on

Nile Breweries under its flagship brand Nile Special has launched a behavioral change campaign dubbed “No Excuse” with the aim of addressing the predicament of sexual harassment in the country. The brand will address the subject by calling for smart drinking measures among its consumers,since alcohol abuse has been identified as one of the primary catalysts for sexual harassment.The aim of the ‘No Excuse’ campaign is to:

• shine a spotlight on the  sexual harassment problem.

• to bring about a change in long established societal behaviours and attitudes

• to activate bystanders with the aim of decreasing and preventing this act

• challenge the public to take appropriate action against perpetrators of sexual harassment

• encourage stakeholders to support the victims to access appropriate support services.

Attention is increasingly being paid to the prevalence of this vice in Uganda. Whether this is down to more cases being reported or the abuse is on the rise, is a matter worth investigating. What is certain, is that the public space in which women can freely express themselves must be guarded. This calls for collective reflection by all stakeholders on the measures to be undertaken to ensure that every individuals rights and freedom are protected as enshrined in the constitution under Article 20.Utilizing the brand’s online platforms, the campaign will implore the public have its say on what constitutes sexual harassment. The information will be curated and the data presented into a communication campaign to both raise awareness and also educate the public about sexual harassment while changing people’s attitudes and beliefs.

 Francis Nyende, the Nile Special Brand Manager said, “It is a good thing that the plight of women regarding sexual harassment is edging to the fore of the national discourse. But it’s also rather disturbing that almost daily there’s a story about a woman that has been sexually harassed. As one of the leading Ugandan brands we have decided to champion the cause. ”Our ultimate goal is to reduce and prevent the incidences of sexual harassment, which affects the lives of too many women, both directly and indirectly, and thereby make a much safer society.

“Some of the places where women are more susceptible to sexual harassment is during the nightlife (bars, discos etc). At certain hours of the night, after consuming a couple of bottles, some men throw caution to the wind at the expense of the women. So we are here to educate revelers that they should drink smart, there’s no excuse for sexual harassment,” says Nyende.

Ms. Gloria Nakafeero, the Commissioner Gender and Women Affairs, Ministry of Gender,

Labour and Social Development said, “We are using the ‘No Excuse’ campaign as a catalyst to

get people to question themselves and their behaviors. We are aware that by identifying the problem we shall need to do more to try and create meaningful change.  So by raising awareness about the issue, the existing laws and policies as well as the existing support services, we will contribute towards positive change in attitudes to make sexual harassment “inexcusable” and unacceptable and demand positive actions towards the elimination of sexual harassment.

I am happy to be associated with the Nile Special ‘No Excuse’ campaign.  It always starts with a simple insight. What rings true for me was the idea that in Uganda, whenever we observe or encounter of sexual harassment, we’re inclined to absent ourselves of any responsibility – or worse still, excuse behaviour that’s totally inexcusable.”  Article 24 of the constitution protects the dignity of every one in Uganda. No person shall be subjected to any form of inhuman or degrading treatment. This includes respect of a person to their psychological or mental wellbeing.

Enough is enough. Let’s stop excusing sexual harassment. Learn more at the Nile Special ‘No Excuse’ campaign websitewww.noexcuse.ug
