“Texila Raises Bar in Education Provision in Zambia”

Texila American University (TAU) Group has pledged, through TAU Zambia, to push beyond the next level the quality of excellence in education provided in Zambia.

In so doing, over the last couple of weeks, TAU Zambia had been finalizing and consolidating its in-country operations prior to the January, 2017, inauguration of the newly acquired 25,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art campus in one of the Capital City’s most exclusive suburbs.

This consolidation has seen the finalization of the acquisition of TAU Zambia’s new property and the recruitment of highly qualified academic and support staff to run the university when it opens in March, 2017.

TAU’s Founder and President, Saju Bhaskar S.P, made it emphatically evident that TAU’s desire for educational excellence that supersedes what currently is the standard in Zambian Education could only be achieved through the expanding and maximising of Zambia’s educational capacity.

The President made this clear when he paid a courtesy call on the Minister of Health, Honourable Chitalu Chilufya M.D., at his offices on Tuesday, 25th October, 2016.

In plainly outlining how TAU, through TAU Zambia, would expand and maximize Zambia’s educational capacity, the President assured the Minister that TAU Zambia would bring together both local and international expats that would provide unparalleled and experience-drenched services, which, coupled with the quality education and infrastructure for which the TAU Group is synonymous, would maximize the aforementioned capacity.

“The high quality infrastructure that TAU Zambia’s facilities will provide in the form of state-of-the-art laboratories, classroom and libraries, and the Educational Tourism that will be generated by Zambia through the university’s aim of not only catering to Zambia but the rest of the region as well, will generate revenue for the country,” he said.

The President further unquestionably elaborated to the Honorable Minister that TAU Zambia was more than capable of not only exceeding the requirement standards set by the Health Professions Council of Zambia (HPCZ), but in setting a benchmark at which all other medical institutions in the country will be judged.

And speaking at the same occasion, Dr.Chilufya stated that the Ministry would facilitate partnerships between TAU Zambia and local hospitals for the successful training of medical doctors who graduate from the university.

The President acknowledged that the Ministry of Health’s facilitation of partnerships with local hospitals on behalf of TAU Zambia and, more so, his pledged personal capacity facilitation, would allow for a much larger partnership for TAU Zambia beyond the more than the five (5) hospitals that are already keen to partner with the university.

The School of Medicine, Department of Nursing, Department of Pharmacy, Department of Public Health, School of Business, Information & Technology, and Education, are among the inaugural schools for which the university is currently enrolling and that will commence in March, 2017.

Furthermore, the President acknowledged that pushing educational excellence in Zambia would require a two-pronged approach that is anchored on one end with the provision of quality education, and on the other end with the generation of revenue for the country to, thus, bolster and encourage more investment in the sector by the Government.

It is for this reason that when the President paid a courtesy call on the Minister of Higher Education, Honourable Nkandu Luo Ph.D., on Wednesday, 19th October, 2016, the main talking point was Educational Tourism and how TAU will capitalise on this revenue generating venture for the betterment of the Zambian republic.

Educational Tourism, which is one of the fastest growing areas of the travel that is part of the, as of 2014, US$7.6 trillion global tourism industry, refers to any programme in which participants travel to a location as a group with the primary purpose of engaging in a learning experience directly related to the location (Rodger, 1998: 28).

The main idea behind this concept is that travel is as much about self-improvement as it is about relaxation. Therefore, as students come to Zambia to study, they not only travel within their destination country of choice but throughout that county and even to neighbouring lands.

The goal here is to widen the educational experience so that university students do not only know their own culture but also that of at least one other nation.

Headaches: A common Burden of Life

headache Headaches: A common Burden of Life Headache is one of the most common medical complaints. Almost everyone experiences a headache from time to time. In the large majority of cases, it is a completely mild condition which is a nuisance and does not represent any significant or long-term medical problems. Headaches can be more complicated than most people realize. Different kinds can have their own set of symptoms, happen for unique reasons, and need different kinds of treatment.

Once you know the type of headache you have, you and your doctor can find the treatment that’s most likely to help and even try to prevent them.

What Are the Types of Headaches?

There are 150 different types of headaches. The most common ones are:

Chronic headaches: Also called stress headaches, chronic daily headaches, or chronic non-progressive headaches, they are the most common type among adults and teens. They cause mild to moderate pain and come and go over time.

Migraines: These headaches are often described as pounding, throbbing pain. They can last from 4 hours to 3 days and usually happen one to four times per month. Along with the pain, people have other symptoms, such as sensitivity to light, noise, or smells; nausea or vomiting; loss of appetite; and upset stomach or belly pain.

Cluster headaches: This type is intense and feels like a burning or piercing pain behind the eyes, either throbbing or constant. It’s the least common but the most severe type of headache. The pain can be so bad that most people with cluster headaches can’t sit still and will often pace during an attack.

They’re called “cluster headaches” because they tend to happen in groups. You might get them one to three times per day during a cluster period, which may last 2 weeks to 3 months. The headaches may disappear completely (go into “remission”) for months or years, only to come back again.

Sinus headaches: With these, you feel a deep and constant pain in your cheekbones, forehead, or bridge of your nose. They happen when cavities in your head, called sinuses, get inflamed. The pain usually comes along with other sinus symptoms, such as a runny nose, feeling of fullness in the ears, fever, and swelling in your face.

Acute headaches: Kids get these headaches that start suddenly and go away after a short time. If there are no symptoms of other nerve problems, the most common cause is a respiratory or sinus infection.

What Causes Headaches?

The pain you feel during a headache comes from a mix of signals between your brain, blood vessels, and nearby nerves. Specific nerves of the blood vessels and head muscles switch on and send pain signals to your brain. But it’s not clear why these signals turn on in the first place.

People often get headaches because of:

Illness: such as an infection, cold, or fever. They’re also common with conditions like sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses), a throat infection, or an ear infection. In some cases, the headaches may be the result of a blow to the head or rarely, a sign of a more serious medical problem.

Stress: Common causes of tension headaches include emotional stress and depression as well as alcohol use, skipping meals, changes in sleep patterns, and taking too much medication. Other causes include eyestrain and neck or back strain due to poor posture.

Headaches, especially migraines, tend to run in families. Most children and teens (90%) who have migraines have other family members who get them. When both parents have a history of migraines, there is a 70% chance that their child will also have them. If only one parent has a history of these headaches, the risk drops to 25%-50%.

Here is an Article published by The Week Magazine on the types of Head Ache and the way to block it. Doctor Dobson Program Chairman for MMSC Sports and Exercise Medicine of Texila American University has shared his views and comments on the same. For his detailed views,
