What Is Infantile Convulsion/Seizures In Children ?

Infantile convulsion is an attack of unconsciousness of violent onset. It is an imbalance body heat (hyperthermia and hypothermia). It is also known as seizures in children. They are most often the result of a raised body temperature associated with a throat or ear infection or other infectious disease. This type of seizure is known as a febrile convulsion and is a reaction of the brain to high body temperature. Epilepsy is another possible cause of seizures in infants and children. Although seizures can be alarming, they are rarely dangerous if properly dealt with. For safety’s sake, however, the child should be seen at a hospital to rule out any serious underlying condition.
Aims of Treatment
  • To protect the child from injury
  • To cool the child
  • To reassure the parents or carer
  • To arrange removal to hospital.
Causes of Convulsion/Seizures
  • High fever

Treatment of Convulsion/Seizures
  • Protect the child from injury. Position pillows or soft padding around the child so that even violent movement will not result in injury.
  • Remove any covering or clothes. Ensure a good supply of cool, fresh air (but be careful not to overcool the child)
  • Use towel to cool the child’s skin with tepid water; start at his forehead and work down his body.
  • Once the seizures have stopped, keep the airway open by placing the child in the recovery position.
  • Reassure the child and parents or career. Monitor and record vital signs, level of response, pulse, and breathing until medical help arrives or you get to the hospital.

Chelsea Welcomes Christian Pulisic and Gets to Know About the Vicinity

Christian Pulisic

Chelsea has welcomed Christian Pulisic into their club and Pulisic is getting to be aware of the vicinity.

The 20-year-old United States international has just spent a couple of days in England getting to know his new surroundings and made it clear the size of the expectations he places on himself.

Christian Pulisic signed a five-and-a-half year contract with the Blues in January but was immediately loaned backed to Germany to finish the campaign at Borussia Dortmund.

"It is incredible to see what Eden can do," Christian Pulisic said in an interview from a reliable source.
"He is a guy to look up to and what I would love to become. "It is definitely a goal. Any player would be dumb not to want to be in the same team as him."

The Chelsea's new £58m forward Christian Pulisic wants to reach the same level as Stamford Bridge favourite Eden Hazard - and hopes he gets a chance to play in the same side as the Belgian next season.

May Offers MPs Withdrawal Agreement Passes


The United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May has now offered MPs referendum European Union withdrawal agreement passes. May has said MPs have "one last chance" to deliver Brexit, urging them to back what she said was a "new deal".

In this regard it means MPs will get a vote on whether to hold another referendum if they back the EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill, she said

Jacob Rees-Mogg has described MPs deal on offer was "worse than before", while Zac Goldsmith said the bill was a "convoluted mess" and the prime minister - who has offered to quit once a Brexit agreement is approved by Parliament - should leave now.

The Labour called it was a "rehash" of existing plans and Tory Brexiteers took to social media to vent their anger.

The bill also contains new guarantees on workers' rights, environmental protections and the Northern Irish border as well a customs "compromise".

MPs have rejected the withdrawal agreement negotiated with the European Union  three times.

In what is seen as a last roll of the dice, Mrs May is now bringing the Withdrawal Agreement Bill - legislation required to bring the agreement into UK law - to Parliament in early June. If MPs reject the bill, she warned them a negotiated exit would be "dead in the water" and Brexit could be stopped.

Clergy Describes The Nigeria 2019 General Elections As Worst Ever Conducted

News today

A clergy has described the just concluded  2019 general election in Nigeria as the worst ever conducted election in history of the nation.

The Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) President, Rev. Dachollom Datiri, described the 2019 general polls as the worst ever general election in the history of the country at the opening of the Church’s 96th General Church Council, ongoing at its headquarters in Jos, the Plateau State capital.

The Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) also equally prayed that those seeking justice will find it at the tribunals.

The clergy said that the elections have come and gone, proving wrong apprehensions of Nigerians of potentially violent polls.

The elections were generally peaceful, but with the drafting of the armed forces including the Nigeria army to the polling units, and the number of petitions already at the tribunals reaching 736. These were the worse elections ever in the history of Nigeria.

The clergy later stressed out that we all need to pray that justice will be done at the tribunals.

Study Uncovers Two Metres Increase in Sea Level In Coming Century

Sea levels next century


Study has uncovered that there will be two metres increase in sea level in next century. The United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said its 2013 Fifth Assessment Report that under current emissions trajectories -- a "business-as-usual" scenario known as RCP8.5 -- would likely rise by up to one metre by 2100.
In this regard, the global sea level geometrical increase by two metres will displace tens of millions of people by the end of the century, according to new projections that double the UN's benchmark estimates.

Further more, the vast ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica contain enough frozen water to lift the world's oceans dozens of metres. The expansion of water as oceans warm also contributes to sea level rise.

However, but predicting the rates at which they will melt as the planet heats is notoriously tricky.
That prediction has since been viewed as conservative, as the levels of planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise year on year, and satellites showing accelerated rates of melt-off from massive ice sheets atop Antarctica and Greenland.

Kami R. Sherpa Sets Another Record for Mountain Climbers

Kami Rita Sherpa

Kami Rita Sherpa set another record for mountain climbers. He has climbed Mount Everest for twenty fourth times. He first climbed Mount Everest in 1994 and currently climbed 24th time in 2019.

Kami Rita Sherpa whose current age is  49 years , successfully scaled the world's tallest mountain named Mount Everest on 21st May, 2019. Sherpa  hails from Nepal

He has set a new Mount Everest record, making it to the top for the 24th time - with his second summit in only seven days.

It was his second record in seven days, having reached the summit for the 23rd time on 15 May and he has became a guide for international companies that organise climbing expeditions.

He says he has no plans to retire, and hopes to clock up more ascents in the years to come.

"I can climb for a few more years," he told before the 23rd attempt one week ago. "I am healthy - I can keep going until I am 60 years old. With oxygen it's no big deal."



You Are Marvelously Unique

Don't Fear

Human beings are special. God created us with marvelous uniqueness and the awesome ability to have an intimate relationship with Him. Like David, we can praise Him because we’re the workmanship of His loving hands.

What are some practical implications of knowing and believing you’re fearfully and wonderfully made? What are some negative consequences of not believing this? God created human beings to be like Him.

Human beings are not special—at least according to the London Zoo. In 2005, the zoo introduced a four-day exhibit: “Humans in Their Natural Environment.” The human “captives” were chosen through an online contest. To help visitors understand the humans, the zoo workers created a sign detailing their diet, habitat, and threats. According to the zoo’s spokesperson, the goal of the exhibit was to downplay the uniqueness of human beings. One participant in the exhibit seemed to agree. “When they see humans as animals, here, it kind of reminds them that we’re not that special.”

What a stark contrast to what the Bible says about human beings: God “fearfully and wonderfully” made us in “his image” (Psalm 139:14; Genesis 1:26–27).

David began Psalm 139 by celebrating God’s intimate knowledge of him (vv. 1–6) and His all-encompassing presence (vv. 7–12). Like a master weaver, God not only formed the intricacies of David’s internal and external features (vv. 13–14), but He also made him a living soul, giving spiritual life and the ability to intimately relate to God. Meditating on God’s handiwork, David responded in awe, wonder, and praise (v. 14).

Dear Lord, help us to know that it's in You that we find and discover our true identity, and in a world that is built with chaos and confusion, help us to take great comfort and knowing that as Eph 1:5 puts it, we're predestined for adoption to sonship in Jesus Christ. May this Word be a reminder to those needing encouragement and strength to continue their walk with You. And it's in Jesus name we pray. Amen!

Today's Scripture: Psalm 139:1-14

God’s Standard Remains



To explain the place of law and grace in our lives as Christians, one of my sons once said that the law teaches us godliness while grace gives us the power to do what the law commands. We can then say that law and grace work together for us to live acceptably before God. You cannot claim to be under the grace of God and live a lawless life, because those who live under God’s grace are subject to the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1-2). You are a partaker of God’s grace because the Spirit of Lordship now lives in you and controls you to live by Christ’s commandments. On the other hand, you cannot obey the instructions of this Spirit of Lordship without the help of God’s grace. Why? It is because His standard is high and His was uncompromising. This is the reason why Christ paid such a high price for us to gain access to God’s throne, where we obtain grace that helps us in this regard. Hebrews 4:16 says:

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

God’s standard is entrenched in His word. No matter how much the world changes, the standards which God’s word sets for man to live by cannot be changed (Matthew 24:35, 2 Timothy 2:19).

Our Lord Jesus Christ in today’s Bible below said He did not come to destroy the law or the prophets; rather, He came to fulfil them by the grace He brought from heaven. His grace is more than enough for those who are willing to obey God, love Him and worship Him in spirit and in truth. Whatever the Lord commands, He gives the grace to do (Philippians 2:13). From the Lord’s teachings in Matthew 5:27-32, it is obvious that His standard of the Law of Moses. This is because His standard establishes the will of God as it was in the beginning (Matthew 19:8). Thankfully, His grace is more than enough to help us meet this standard. For example, Christ brought the grace not only to avoid going into the act of sexual immorality but also to help us not lust after the opposite sex in our hearts (Matthew 5:27-28). The law says we should not commit murder, but the letter of grace helps us not to be angry at all. The same thing applies to the issue of divorce. Jesus Christ taught against divorce, equating it with the sin of adultery (Matthew 5:31-32). God’s standards have not changed, and they will never change. Our love for God should motivate us to live by His standards. James 1:25 says:

“But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”

Let us continually look into the perfect law of liberty in order to please our God daily.
MEMORISE:
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Matthew 24:35

BIBLE PASSAGE : Matthew 5:17-20
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, please grant me the grace to live by Your standards daily, in Jesus’ Name.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:  Exodus 35-36
Jeremiah 39

HYMN 12: DEEPER, DEEPER IN THE LOVE OF JESUS
Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
Daily let me go;
Higher, higher in the school of wisdom,
More of grace to know.
Refrain:
Oh, deeper yet, I pray,
And higher every day,
And wiser, blessed Lord,
In Thy precious, holy Word.

Deeper, deeper, blessed Holy Spirit,
Take me deeper still,
Till my life is wholly lost in Jesus,
And His perfect will.

Deeper, deeper! though it cost hard trials,
Deeper let me go!
Rooted in the holy love of Jesus,
Let me fruitful grow.

Deeper, higher, every day in Jesus,
Till all conflict past,
Finds me conqu’ror, and in His own image
Perfected at last.

Deeper, deeper in the faith of Jesus,
Holy faith and true;
In His pow’r and soul exulting wisdom
Let me peace pursue.
