“The most impressive thing for me were the little details that make driving easier.”

The Fully Automatic Renault Koleos

t

he Koleos is a delightful vehicle. Those were my first thoughts as I surveyed the cabin. There’s nothing to dislike about it. Everything is well laid out and within the drivers reach. The steering wheel is sleek and slender and because it’s not as large as the steering wheel in competitors' models, it offers the driver a confident grip no matter the size of their hands. Did I mention it’s a fully leather interior? It’s utterly comfortable and the powered adjustable seats allow you to try a variety of driving positions. You’ll never feel like you’re too low or too high.

Reviewed by Nana Owusu

The car itself already sits high enough for a driver to have complete view of the road ahead, beside and behind. It just puts you in a power position. Even the back seat is adjustable, giving your rear passengers the opportunity to relax on lengthy journeys. This is perfect for long drives or when you’re just stuck in traffic. Leg room is generous and there is adequate headroom so that your taller passengers won’t feel cramped. The Koleos is categorized as a crossover vehicle. That means it combines the sleek spaciousness

auto review of a beautiful sedan with the height, power and performance of a 4x4. That also means this is an off-road vehicle that allows you to tackle all the rough terrain you encounter in absolute, airconditioned comfort. It means you’ll never have to avoid any roads because the Koleos can literally go anywhere you decide to take it. I drove it through the back roads around Dzorwulu and Abelemkpe and it handled them effortlessly. But that’s not the most impressive thing about this car. The most impressive thing for me were the little details that make driving easier…Like the fact that it’s a 6-speed automatic system, but also has a steptronic system that allows you to switch from automatic and change gears yourself without the need for a clutch. Or the little drop down mirror that allows you to keep an eye on the passengers behind without having to look back – especially handy if you’re carrying children. Or the parking sensors, that guide you as you reverse. Best of all, the Koleos introduces its owner to a simpler and safer life with inbuilt technology. It has keyless entry and a start stop button so you do not need a key to open/lock the car or start it. With the push of a button, your engine starts smoothly and silently. The onboard computer allows you to control the radio and automatically syncs your phone via Bluetooth. So, whenever

you get a call, it comes through the car speakers and you can have conversations without being distracted by your phone. It has cruise control and a speed limiter for long journeys so you can relax and enjoy the drive at your preferred speed. Apart from electronic stability control and an anti-locking braking system, it also has hill descent control that prevents the car from slipping back when you’re driving up a slope and even maintains control when you’re driving down a steep hill. The striking thing is that all these features come as standard and that is what sets the Koleos apart. It’s definitely a car worth looking at considering the fact that it combines two worlds, and gives its driver a fulfilling driving experience. If you’re looking for the right car yourself, for the family, or for your clients, for travel or to drive around town, or if you’re torn between getting a sedan or a 4x4, the Koleos could be the car that solves all your problems. It’s certainly worth a test drive. e

PROMASIDOR CORPORATE PROFILE

“The vision is to continue to offer high quality, value-for-money products and strive to satisfy the high standards that our consumers have come to expect from our products.”

R

obert Rose in 1979 founded the Promasidor Group then as Wonder Foods. The desire of the founder was to provide food value to the African consumer as he believed quality and affordable food was a basic human right. This desire drove Promasidor to distribute milk powder across the vast African continent, making affordable milk accessible to everyone. Promasidor began selling the Cowbell brand in the Democratic Republic of Congo (then Zaire) in 1979. Today Cowbell is sold in many countries across the African continent including Ghana and Promasidor has operations in over 30 African countries. With an extensive knowledge and expertise gained in manufacturing, 10

Promasidor profile

“Promasidor has taken great strides in the area of socially responsible projects with a focus on the areas of education and health.”

One of the important vehicles for the promotion of its brands and a healthy lifestyle for the average Ghanaian is sports. This Promasidor has supported both at the mass and professional level. One such sport is cycling. Promasidor today organizes mass bicycle caravans across the country with very high patronage. Other sports supported by Promasidor include athletics, swimming, and basketball to mention just a few. In addition to its commercial objectives, Promasidor has taken great strides in the area of socially responsible projects with a focus on the areas of education and health. Some of the projects that the company have undertaken include the construction of school buildings and the provision of water facilities to schools in the Ada estuary. Promasidor’s CSR portfolio also includes supporting orphanages nationwide as well as providing support for scientific and nutritional conferences. In the coming months, PGL is looking to set up a scholarship scheme for needy students at the tertiary level as a way of extending its CSR support even further. In the future, Promasidor intends to continue to explore new ways of fulfilling its mandate of providing quality food at an affordable price to the entire nation. e

Bertha De Graft – Johnson, A stalwart in the Golden Tulip Hotel sales and marketing team written by Alain Gbeasor

What are some of your strong attributes and what have been your contributions to the Golden Tulip since your appointment?

“I have very good interpersonal skills. I’m a team player, honest and fair and exercise a very professional approach to my duties.”

T

he Golden Tulip hotel, Accra is a wonderful hotel of variations, from the imposing fort like entrance through the Branche restaurant to the poolside with its fantastic panorama of trees. Bertha De Graft–Johnson is a well known face at the Golden Tulip Accra hotel. As head of the sales & marketing department for the past 14 years, she has consolidated the image of the Golden Tulip hotel with clients from the corporate, individual leisure and the conference and banqueting sectors. With over 21 years experience practicing marketing in the hotel industry as well as an MBA in marketing, Bertha is highly regarded by both clients and her peers. 16

Yours truly caught up with her at the exclusive Branche restaurant and asked her a few questions. Can you introduce yourself to our readers? I am Bertha De Graft –Johnson, the sales and marketing manager at the Golden Tulip Hotel, Accra. I’m married to my very supportive husband Kweku Amoako Atta de GraftJohnson, research scientist and we have three children. Prior to my appointment at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Accra, I worked with the Novotel in Accra as assistant sales and marketing manager for 7 years.

www.enjoyaccra.com

I would say I have very good interpersonal skills. I’m a team player, honest and fair and exercise a very professional approach to my duties. With the support of my team we have worked hard to build a strong and positive image for the Golden Tulip brand in Ghana.Through intensive public relations including special events such as the bridal fair, food and wine pairing and other themed events such as ‘Adventures in the Diaspora’, and a ghanaian lunch every Saturday among others. On September 30 we are launching a new event, the ‘Tulip Mirror Ball’, a unique nightclub concept which will provide entertainment for the ‘old school’ generation. As far back as 1999 we were the first hotel to introduce the outside catering & party service. We introduced innovative marketing programmes such as management team visits combined with coffee breaks to some of our loyal customers. As far as I am aware, we are the only hotel with such a programme.

The Golden Tulip is now part of the Louvre Hotels Group, what does that bring to your clientele? The Louvre/Golden Tulip Group currently operates over 1000 hotels worldwide with 7 brands which include 1 to 5 stars. This means that our clients should have a choice regards the different brands that we offer and access to a worldwide reservation system network.

Your hotel recently won the prestigious CIMG Award for Hospitality Facility of the Year 2010. As head of marketing, how does this make you feel and what do you think contributed to your winning this award? I am delighted that our efforts paid off and our numerous clients were happy with our marketing programs which made them come back again and again. These included incentive programs for long staying guests, special room and food & beverage packages. Over the past decade to date we implemented a differentiation strategy that has positioned the hotel as the market leader and preferred hotel in Ghana. This year we Enjoy September 2011

have introduced new value added services to enhance services to our regular and VIP clients. Through these initiatives, the hotel has over the years won a number of awards. The ‘icing on the cake’ as we celebrate our 20th Anniversary in November, 2011, is this CIMG Hospitality Facility of the Year 2010 Award. Some of our past awards are: • Best Business Hotel in West Africa, October 2010 – Nigeria Akwaaba • Inclusion in Ghana Top 100 Companies 2009

www.enjoyaccra.com

Any final thoughts to share with us? I would like to express my appreciation to our clients, guests, staff, suppliers, and the press for their support over the past year. This definitely contributed to us winning the prestigious CIMG Hospitality Award. On the eve of our 20th anniversary celebrations this award could not have been a better testimony of our success and an acknowledgment of our contribution towards Ghana's hospitality industry. I assure all our stakeholders that we will not rest on our oars and that they should expect more of what we do best, delivering quality international service with a touch of local flavour. e 17

The People Of HAATSO MARK HOMOWO

H

omowo is a festival celebrated by the Ga people of Ghana It starts in May, before the rainy season begins, with the planting of crops. The word "homowo" in Ga means to hoot or jeer at hunger. The tradition of homowo started with a period of famine which occurred due to the failure of seasonal rains needed by crops. When the rains returned to normal, the people celebrated by creating the Homowo festival hence its name and meaning. A month before the celebration, there is a ban on drumming and noise making in the greater Accra region. The calendar for the celebration which is usually in August is made by the Dantu Priest. The festival starts when the Dantu priest celebrates his grand custom of feasting and making concoctions for the royal family to sprinkle on them to ward away evil spirits and protect them against diseases.

22

One interesting aspect of the celebration is twins day. On this day all twins in the town are dressed in white calico, and paraded around town. There is also a boat race between the Asafo groups (Traditional warriors); this is just to add to the excitement of the celebration. There is a special meal for the celebration. This meal known as (kpokpoi) is made from maize and is eaten with palm nut soup. The paramount chief of the GA traditional area, the GA Mantse, goes round the town sprinkling food on the ground. The food he sprinkles is for the gods, a show of appreciation for keeping people safe. Natives who have travelled return home and family issues are discussed in every household. Disputes are settled and there is much merry

making and celebration. There is also a grand durbar of the chiefs and people of the region. The King delivers his annual speech and advises the people to do what is right and live in harmony with one another. The chief priest pours a libation and prays for the people. The king sits in state and receives dignitaries amidst drumming and dancing. The festival is to show people that with hard work and determination, they can succeed in everything they do and overcome adversity as their ancestors did. Facing starvation they didn't just sit down but worked hard to overcome this hardship. e

1st Annual Ghana Youth Forum Sponsored by Enjoy Accra

Student participants and stakeholders

A

t an event held at the Adae Kese hall of La Palm hotel on 30 July 2011, Ghana’s youth came together to explore improving their education system at the first annual Ghana Youth Forum. The Ghana Student Education Fund, in collaboration with the Generation of Honour Group and the Be Bold show asked Ghanaian Senior High School Students to evaluate their educational system and consider some of the reforms needed to in order to improve it. Students from various Accra senior high schools debated pertinent issues that needed to be addressed in order to improve Ghana’s education system. The vision of the annual Ghana Youth Forum is to bring together stakeholders from the education system to support the youth as they develop policy reforms for the educational system as a whole. The focus is on the curriculum for senior high schools, 24

but long term reforms are targetting all levels of schooling. This year's inaugural launch focused on public senior high schools in the greater Accra region. The event at La Palm was the final event in a string of preliminary rounds that were held to determine the best policy debators who would qualify for the finals. Out of the 8 public senior high schools from Greater Accra Schools that participated in the preliminary round, three were selected by youth judges as the best debate teams. O'reilly Senior High Schooll and West Africa Senior High School tied at the preliminary round and had to endure a knock out round at the final event of which, O'reilly Senior High School pulled ahead. The final policy debate was between O'reilly Senior High School and Ordorgonno Senior High School. The competition was tight, but in the end Ordorgonno Senior High www.enjoyaccra.com

E

Eric Oduro Aniagyei (48), is a Ghanaian artist, who has received international acclaim for his wire sculpture. He creates amazing works of art from galvanised and enameled copper wire. His sculptures are depictions of human, animals and even text from famous quotes. Much of Aniagyei's recent work focuses on figures such as his musicians, the beggar series, "the dichotomy" and the globe men. The forms are realistic and life-like. A self-taught wire sculptor, he was formally trained as a biologist and an environmental scientist at Cape Coast University and University of Ghana, Legon, respectively. He has no formal training in art but believes every experience in life trains a person in one way or the other in whatever field a person finds himself. His sculptures have been exhibited in Ghana, the US, South Africa, and Australia. e

A ries

Cancer

Libra

21/3-20/04

22/6-23/07

24/9-23/10

September is likely to be an especially busy month for you, dear Cancer, and while you can feel pulled in a number of directions, you manage to stay on top of things. There are fewer problems with transportation and communication than there were in August, and this helps you to get through your days much easier. The 23-24th is strong for money earned from your profession, as well as for recognition for your talents. The last three days of the month bring the need to get serious about your family and domestic life.

Work done in relative solitude is your best bet this month, dear Libra, although the last week of September brings more outgoing energy and a stronger desire to mingle. Friendships become especially lively. Some of you will be making a new, very positive connection with a helpful person. Strains in your close relationships can be part of the picture towards month's end. Someone could be questioning your character. Challenges can be overcome, however, and bonds can be strengthened, especially with charming Venus in your sign from the 14th forward. Personal charisma can win the day.

Taurus

L eo

Scorpio

21/4-21/05

24/7-23/08

24/10-22/11

The New Moon at the end of August set the tone for the first four weeks of September, dear Taurus, and it's a highly creative, romantic, and fun theme! Others are finding you especially appealing, and you are making time for recreation. You could be feeling especially amorous. Creative Bulls will find plenty of inspiration. Recently, there has been much focus on the past in your love life, but September brings forward-looking energy to your relationships. Home life is improving this month. In the last few days of September, there comes a need to get serious about your work and health.

Emotions settle and September begins with a sense of calm, dear Leo. If you have been waiting for a loan, financial aid, mortgage, or other settlement, this is the month when you're likely to get the good news. Money is a big focus this month, and you are in a good position to improve your lot in life. Love becomes more about communication and sharing the little things with a special someone after the 14th. After the 18th, the pace of your life picks up, and you have the energy to move mountains. The 23-24th can bring a partnership to life and possibly news of a trip.

Your social life animates this month, dear Scorpio, and your ability to persuade others is stronger than ever. The Full Moon on the 12th can raise the temperature in a romance. Your career once again heats up from the 18th forward you are large and in charge. Recognition for your least acknowledged talents is forthcoming around the 23-24th. Those Scorpios looking for work can have attractive job offers then. While your working life continues to keep you on your toes through to the end of the month and into October, you begin to require quality personal down time and solitude in the last week of September.

Gemini

Virgo

Sagittarius

22/5-21/06

24/8-23/09

23/11-21/12

September is likely to be a more straightforward month for you, dear Gemini. Financial matters clear up, and work matters move forward. An important culmination of a professional matter can occur around the 12th, when recognition may be forthcoming. Family and domestic life assume more importance than usual. By midmonth, spending habits become more moderate, and security is more important to you. You come out of your shell on the 23rd, although the last week of September brings serious energy to a romance or creative project. Answers can come now.

More clarity and a stronger sense of purpose are with you this month, dear Virgo. Money matters tend to be strong, although there can be a need to get serious about your finances towards the end of September. It's important that you get all of your paperwork into order. Around the time of the Full Moon on the 12th, a relationship matter can come to light. Your powers of attraction are especially strong until the 14th with loving Venus in your sign, and your persuasive abilities powerful from the 9-25th.

Work matters can be very strong this month, dear Sagittarius, especially in the last week of August. You might receive recognition or some other fruit of your labour. Love relationships and friendships can be on the temperamental side, however. This hasn't the most reliable arena of your life recently. Arguments about money can figure, and there may be a misunderstanding surrounding just how serious a relationship is getting. Be particularly careful with money and intimate matters around the 9-12, when impulsive moves can bring negative consequences.

Work projects move forward and gain momentum in September, dear Aries. You're especially, busy and finding ways to eliminate waste so that you're more productive. Being busy actually feels good, and this is a strong month for getting a whole lot accomplished. While you may have been "living in the past" on a romantic level in August, this month you're looking forward. Personal appeal skyrockets the 23-24. Answers to relationship questions can come on the 27-30th, when you're getting serious about your future. Some of you could also begin a new partnership at this time.

Reinforcement Rewards

Capricorn 22/12-20/01

written by; S. Ganglani

You might confront more opposition to your plans than usual this month, dear Capricorn. While you typically do very well in the face of adversity, this month, you could be feeling quite moody. Energy is stop and go. Impatience with a partner is possible this month, and issues of freedom, responsibilities, and attention to family are likely heated topics. Clearing the air may be necessary. Review of your budget, and especially of debt or shared resources, can be very fruitful in August. Energy returns towards month's end, when you are more able to see the bigger picture.

A quarius 21/01-19/02 You need to be more realistic in your expectations of others and of relationships this month, dear Aquarius. Revisiting past relationships and solving old relationship problems are on the agenda in August. Watch for impatience, especially on the job, while driving, and while dealing with transportation or communication mixups. Work matters can be very hectic this month, and you may need to deal with troublesome co-workers. You can be quite impatient with routine now, and if you can find a way to set your own pace, everyone will benefit. Physical exercise will be an excellent stress releaser.

Pisces 20/02-20/03 More compromise in love is necessary this month, dear Pisces, but the tendency now is to come on strong and to rush things, which is not your typical style. Tame impatience as much as possible, as love needs time to unfold naturally. Circumstances signal the need for more rest mid-month, even though your instincts, and some snafus and mix-ups, pull you in the direction of work and putting more effort into daily routines. You might spend more money and time in August on "fun" things and leisure activities.

M

any of my young mother friends have frequent debates about whether rewarding the positive behaviour of their children is a good idea. “It gets the job done sometimes, but does it not spoil them?" I understand the concerns parents may have with rewards and the uncertainties associated with them, but the power of reinforcement should never be underestimated. When people think of reinforcement, they think of giving children candy or toys in exchange for good behaviour. Although many people resist the notion, reinforcement guides much of our behaviour. The principle of reinforcement is simply that if a behaviour is followed by something positive, it is strengthened and more likely to occur again. This does not mean that a child's social behaviour is primarily guided by someone giving him material things whenever he behaves in certain ways. Social re-enforcers like attention, and smiles, have the greatest impact on you and your child's behaviour. Most of your child's behaviour is established through social-re-enforcers that occur repeatedly each day. Reenforcers work gradually and have to occur repeatedly to significantly change behaviour. Your child is re-enforced more by little but frequent responses to him/her such as smiles and compliments than by material rewards. Rewards can be social or non-social. Social rewards are verbal (for example, "I like that you come to dinner when I call"), physical (like a hug), or activities (for example, a game). Non-social rewards are treats following desirable behaviour, and they should always be combined with praise. What is most important to your child is YOUR attention. In other words, simply giving a toy for good behaviour will not be effective in changing his/her behaviour. Rather, “Non-social rewards your attention in the form of social rewards are treats following is most important and desirable behaviour, and should be naturally they should always be linked to using noncombined with praise�. social rewards. Parenting is work but can be fun and rewarding! e

MAKING CHAMPIONS OF YOUR CHILDREN By JABARI AKIL A.K.A. The Love Doctor

0302-915-503; or email: love.doctor.@google.comBlog : ecohue.blogspot.com

t

he 21st century parent must be equipped to face the unparallelled challenges of the age. How do you raise a child to be the very best when he or she can be with many detractors aligned to discourage, disrupt, and destroy the budding mind of a child. Annotated from the book, Principle-Centered Leadership, by Stephen R. Covey, the following seven keys can also apply to making champions of the people you employ, manage, or lead.

First, build your children’s self-esteem.

From the day of conception, affirming a child can have lasting impact on confidence and competence. Giving large amounts of positive feedback, praise instead of punishment can go further than you can imagine.

Second, encourage primary greatness.

Primary greatness-is principled centered character, tapping the power within. Selfmastery and self-discipline are the roots of good relationships with others. Integrity, maturity, and commitment are keys that will be useful.

Third, encourage them to develop their own interests. Your child may be interested

in activities or sports that neither parent has an interest in or familiarity with. This is an excellent opportunity to build memories together.

“Giving large amounts of positive feedback, praise instead of punishment can go further than you can imagine.”

42

Fourth, create an enjoyable family culture. The family is the bedrock! Having a fun

and satisfying environment other than school, friends, and peers is a sure way of ensuring the proper imaging of the precious ones. Many parents overlook the importance of planning fun family events – events that become traditional.

Fifth, be the example of excellence.

Establishing expectations of excellence, being and acting to the very best of their ability and potential in every action and endeavour. This can define the very nature of the choices your children make.

Sixth, adopt their friends. Individual champions are often part of championship teams. That is why investing in teams, clubs, extra curricula activities with their friends usually is a good investment. Seventh, provide support, resources, and feedback. Exchanging letters, notes, text

messages, emails, and phone calls with children to affirm them and each other. Such constant affirmations have a cumulative effect. They become a strong emotional support to people. Raising children in ‘changing times’ is certainly not new, however parents in this day must be innovative to influence the direction of your growing child. Do you remember basic botany? The plant always moves toward the light, we must be that light to the budding plant! e

During their flight from Cannes to Accra, Thomas, Loic and Erwan were in for a lot of fun and anxiety. From an electrical fault on the aircraft manned by them to thunder storms as well as an emergency landing at night without head lights‌.They have seen it all and were excited and not a little relieved when the tower at the Kotoka International Airport came into view.

Europe is a fantastic place and a culturally rich destination which needs to be explored. There are many things to do: shopping, siestas on idyllic beaches, exploring museums and sampling the local gastronomy. Every summer Tina and Alain decide on a place to visit and this year saw them visit France, Switzerland, Italy and Germany. They visited the hometown of Dominique Paravicini in Belleville, France where the Paravicini’s held the baptism of their son Raphael. The ceremony was observed by a Beninois Priest and the swiss and french families of Raphael were present in their numbers. Guests then enjoyed a 12 course meal put together by Valerie and her team at the Restaurant Cote Saone. The restaurant overlooking the Saone river provided a stunning backdrop to the proceedings. e
