His Excellency Mr. Frédéric Clavier, Ambassador of France to Ghana
they all were convinced of the economic importance of Ghana. We’ve made it now! J.M: Obviously, the creation and launch of the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry is to address one or more needs. What are they? A.F.C:
H.E. Mr. Frédéric Clavier, French Ambassador to Ghana
Juanito Mario (J.M) :
Your Excellency, ‘Enjoy’ Magazine thanks you for this interview. In your opinion how far have relations between France and Ghana travelled?
When I arrived in Ghana a little over two years ago, I immediately ranked this project a priority. Right away, French Foreign Trade Advisors and the Head of the Economic Mission set to it. Likewise, Ghanaian businessmen told me: ‘we need a Chamber of commerce to strengthen further our trade and investment relationship.
Ambassador Frédéric Clavier (A.F.C): Our relations are excellent, based on great confidence between political, and economic officials. That is something very tangible, I would even say something new, to have reached such level of maturity in the relationship between our two countries. Exchanges are constant, and they encompass all the issues. J.M: I also wish to congratulate you on the launch of the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Ghana. My information is that you were especially keen on the creation and launch of the Chamber. Would you explain why? 8 | June 2014 ENJOY No 90
J.M: How did you make the Chamber of Commerce a reality? A.F.C: Together with Foreign Trade Advisors of France, we have work ed for the past two years. The process has been a complex one, involving lots of people, including officers of the French Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Economy and Finance; we also had to involve Ubifrance, the investment promotion agency. Everyone has been very receptive and has pushed in the same direction, as
There was first the need to let people know what France can bring to Ghana in terms of economic partnership and investment. Also, it was necessary to showcase the destination France to Ghanaian businessmen and investors. In all my interactions, I perceived on either side an appetite to work together. The Chamber will enable each and everybody to know one another and generate business opportunities. J.M: Between the French enterprises and the Ghanaian enterprises, which ones craved the creation of this institution the most? A.F.C: Frankly speaking, both! When I met a Ghanaian or a French businessman and I talked to them about this project, they would show interest and even enthusiasm at once. Companies need a body which would support them in their moves and give them information on the markets. The Chamber will be dedicated to that.
“Some French companies which work and create jobs in Ghana need that agreement. The Chamber will fulfil, I think, its part in this debate.”
Interview JM: So kindly tell us whom the Chamber of Commerce and Industry is targeting? A.F.C: All businessmen who want to work with France, with Ghana but also with the French-speaking neighbouring countries. We will be listening to them and, above all, we will be accompanying them in their projects. J.M: How would you express your hopes, on the economic front, after the creation of the Chamber? A.F.C: I want to set myself an ambitious but reasonable goal: to increase twofold the trade flows between our two countries in the coming five years. I think that it is realistic. Today, the figure is USD1.7 billion. That is good but there is room for more. That applies to investment, including SMEs. J.M: Can we expect impact also in other areas? The “Francophonie”, tourism, culture...? A.F.C: Yes, nothing is to be left out. I have strong beliefs in our ability to create bridges between individuals and institutions, what is termed as de-compartmentalization. To create links between Anglophone countries and Francophone countries falls in line with the logic of history. The idea is also to refuse to consider any areas as out-ofbounds including tourism and cultural industries. J.M: Here in Accra, the Ambassador put his shoulders to the wheel alongside other personalities so that everything is on track today. But in Paris, to what levels did
the Quai d’Orsay and Bercy get involved? Maybe even of the Elysée Palace? A.F.C: Indeed, the highest French authorities were informed and they readily supported the project. That tells you about the unprecedented mobilization by the French officials around the President of the Republic and the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development to promote economic diplomacy, adapted to the challenges of today’s world. J.M: On the Ghanaian side, what has been their contribution to this achievement? A.F.C: I had all the necessary support not only from the Ghanaian authorities but also from the business community and professional associations (GIPC; PEF; AGI), which have been encouraging me. Let me pay my respects to them here and convey my appreciation. J.M: This brings me to the next question: what does Ghana represent in the French diplomatic set-up, on a continent en route for more freedoms and economic comfort?
A.F.C: It is a friendly country which France exchanges with on many issues in a most transparent manner. Ghana has come extraordinarily far in 20 years. Today, it is a pillar of development. It is also a country well-respected abroad for its contribution to freedom, democracy, peace and stability. Our diplomats work confidently on an almost daily basis with each other on all the big issues on the international agenda. J.M: Your Excellency, the big issue of the moment is undoubtedly the Economic Partnership Agreements. To what extent can the CCFG contribute to the debate here in Ghana? A.F.C: This is an important issue for the future of the EU-Ghana relationship because it is about access rights of each of our markets. Negotiations are well advanced. There is still some way to go but I believe an agreement is at hand. Some French companies which work and create jobs in Ghana need that agreement. The Chamber will fulfil, I think, its part in this debate. J.M: A while ago, you mentioned economic diplomacy and that is the order of the day for all diplomatic set-ups nowadays. Your word for economic operators in the host country? A.F.C: France has strengths. French companies are known for their techniques, their know-how, and their seriousness in business. They want Ghanaian entrepreneurs to take advantage of that. To know better the Ghanaian market and to know better the French market; to join possibly: That is what is called a win-win situation. e ENJOY No 90 June 2014 | 9

ORIGIN There are two theories for the etymology of ‘June’, the name given to the sixth month of the year. What is certain is that ‘June’ was initially named ‘Iunius’. Some say the name comes from the Roman goddess Juno, the goddess of marriage and wife of the supreme deity Jupiter. Others assert it originates from the Latin word iuniores, meaning ‘younger ones’. But really, who cares what sex the angels are? Note however that in the early Roman calendar, June only had 29 days. It was Julius Caesar who added the additional day giving June 30 days. e
Fun Facts about June: June is known as a great month to get married. The longest day of the year occurs on either June 21 or 22. The famous Wimbledon tennis tournament in the United Kingdom is played during the month of June.

Don’t Hope… Decide!
While waiting to pick up a friend at the airport in Portland, Oregon, I had one of those life-changing experiences that you hear other people talk about — the kind that sneaks up on you unexpectedly. This one occurred a mere two feet away from me. Straining to locate my friend among the passengers deplaning through the jet way, I noticed a man coming toward me carrying two light bags. He stopped right next to me to greet his family. First he motioned to his youngest son (maybe six years old) as he laid down his bags. They gave each other a long, loving hug. As they separated enough to look in each other’s face, I heard the father say, “It’s so good to see you, son. I missed you so much!” His son smiled somewhat shyly, averted his eyes and replied softly, “Me, too, Dad!” Then the man stood up, gazed in the eyes of his oldest son (maybe nine or ten) and while cupping his son’s face in his hands said, “You’re already quite the young man. I love you very much, Zach!” They too hugged a most loving, tender hug. While this was happening, a baby girl (perhaps one or one-and-ahalf) was squirming excitedly in her mother’s arms, never once taking her little eyes off the wonderful sight of her returning father. The man said, “Hi, baby girl!” as he gently took the child from her mother. He quickly kissed her face all over and then held her close to his chest while rocking her from side to side. The little girl instantly relaxed and simply laid her head on his shoulder, motionless in pure contentment. After several moments, he handed his daughter to his oldest son and declared, “I’ve saved the best for last!” and proceeded to give his
wife the longest, most passionate kiss I ever remember seeing. He gazed into her eyes for several seconds and then silently mouthed. “I love you so much!” They stared at each other’s eyes, beaming big smiles at one another, while holding both hands. For an instant they reminded me of newlyweds, but I knew by the age of their kids that they couldn’t possibly be. I puzzled about it for a moment then realized how totally engrossed I was in the wonderful display of unconditional love not more than an arm’s length away from me. I suddenly felt uncomfortable, as if I was invading something sacred, but was amazed to hear my own voice nervously ask, “Wow! How long have you two been married? “Been together fourteen years total, married twelve of those.” he replied, without breaking his gaze from his lovely wife’s face. “Well then, how long have you been away?” I asked. The man finally turned and looked at me, still beaming his joyous smile. “Two whole days!” Two days? I was stunned. By the intensity of the greeting, I had assumed he’d been gone for at least several weeks – if not months. I know my expression betrayed me. I said almost offhandedly, hoping to end my intrusion with some semblance of grace (and to get back to searching for my friend), “I hope my marriage is still that passionate after twelve years!” The man suddenly stopped smiling. He looked me straight in the eye, and with forcefulness that burned right into my soul, he told me something that left me a different person. He told me, “Don’t hope, friend… decide!” Then he flashed me his wonderful smile again, shook my hand and said, “God bless!” e By Michael D. Hargrove and Bottom Line Underwriters, Inc.

ADIEU, KOFI ANSAH !
e believed he had the duty of bringing happiness to fashion lovers with his God-given talent. He believed that hard work would allow him to discharge his principled duty, and he managed to put elation in hearts, smiles on faces and admiration in beholders’ eyes. He made sure he played his part and now, he has quietly taken a bow! He was 62. We wish his family well in these trying moments, and urge them to take deserved consolation both in the fact that The Great Maker made His sovereign decision and in the joyful stories that their celebrated son always told with his designs. Kofi Ansah was interested in “bringing happiness” to people who were inspired to choose his designs. That was how he achieved recognition and respects from far and near. Truly, Kofi Ansah mastered his fashion designing art. He loved fabrics and he translated that into splendid creations.
“Among many other achievements, he won the prestigious Millennium 2000 African Fashion Awards and then the much-coveted Ghana Quality Awards Diamond Division October 2003.”

Skin Care Therapies Brought to you by Nouvelle Parfumerie Gandour
sthetics is the application of various treatments to the skin, to maintain its health and vitality. Estheticians are trained in skin wellness, helping their clients balance oil and moisture content and achieve a healthy, youthful complexion. As well as various facial treatments (described in more detail below), they commonly also perform body treatments such as salt or sugar scrubs, moisturizing or slenderizing body wraps, hair removal techniques such as waxing or threading, and hand/foot treatments to rejuvenate the skin. A variety of treatments and products are used to protect skin from environmental hazards and combat fine lines, wrinkles, and a dull, uneven skin tone. Estheticians are also skilled in managing conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema, and dry skin, to name just a few. And finally, skin care treatments are wonderfully relaxing and rejuvenating. If smooth, healthy skin is your goal, visiting a skin care professional can benefit you.
Whatâ€™s the difference between dermatology, cosmetology, and esthetics? Dermatology is a branch of the medical profession, practiced by licensed physicians who specialize in disorders of the skin. Esthetic practice specifically excludes diagnosis, prescription, or any other service, procedure, or therapy that requires a medical license. If youâ€™re being treated by a dermatologist, your esthetician can provide complementary and support therapies. In addition, estheticians are trained to recognize early signs of many medical conditions affecting the skin, and will refer you to a dermatologist in such a case.
38 | June 2014 ENJOY No 90
Cosmetology is the study of beauty treatments including nail care, hair care and styling, makeup application, skin care and more. Esthetics is one branch of cosmetology; some estheticians work in other branches of cosmetology in addition to their skin care practice.
Techniques and products Techniques used by estheticians include facial steaming, wrapping, exfoliation, waxing, pore cleansing, extraction, and chemical peels. Creams, lotions, wraps, clay or gel masks, and salt scrubs are used. Machines may also be used to help deliver high-tech services.
• Chemical peel:
An exfoliation process, very effective in treating a large range of skin concerns such as aging, sun damage, acne, mild scarring, improving overall skin brightness and evening skin tone. Peels can be light, moderate or deep. Light peels require no down time from work or normal activities. Moderate peels may require a day or two of down time, and deep peels can require a week or more to allow the skin to fully heal. Estheticians who are not working in a medical setting perform light to moderate peels only. Deep peels are performed by a physican, or under a physician’s supervision, for your safety.
• Exfoliation: The removal of dead skin cells manually (scrubbing, brushing, or using a system such as microdermabrasion), with a chemical peel (a product that causes dead skin cells to shed) or with an enzymatic product that digests dead skin cells. • Extraction: This is the process of deep cleansing
the pores, either manually (using gloved hands and cotton or tissue around the fingers, with gentle pressure to remove the impacted pore) or using a metal extraction implement designed to clear blocked pores. This can also include the use of a lancet (a small sharp blade to lift the dead cells of the skin prior to extraction).
“Microdermabrasion can be very helpful in improving
skin texture, fine lines and the effectiveness of home care product penetration”.
• Facial: A facial is the most popular treatment performed by estheticians. It is a good way for your therapist to get a good understanding of your skin prior to suggesting more aggressive treatments. A facial generally includes makeup removal and skin cleansing, exfoliation by mechanical, enzymatic or chemical means, steaming, extractions, facial massage, a treatment mask, serum/ moisturizer and sunblock. For most people, facials can be scheduled every four weeks, although your therapist may recommend a different schedule based on your individual needs. • Microdermabrasion: The process of resurfacing the skin using a machine that sands the skin’s epidermal (outer) layer, using either a wand tipped with crushed diamonds, or a spray of special crystals which are then suctioned back up along with the dead skin cells. It can be very helpful in improving skin texture, fine lines and the effectiveness of home care product penetration. • Waxing:
Waxing removes unwanted hair at the root. There are two different types of waxes: hard and soft. Soft wax is applied warm to the skin in a thin layer in the direction of hair growth. Cloth strips are then applied to the warm wax, rubbed in the direction of hair growth, and quickly pulled off in the opposite direction. This method is best used on larger areas of the body such as the legs, back or chest. Hard wax is used without cloth strips. It is applied warm, in a layer about the thickness of a nickel, allowed to dry and then removed quickly in the opposite direction of hair growth. Hard wax is less irritating to sensitive skin and is excellent for the bikini, underarm and facial areas. e

The June 12 Full Moon expands your horizons, widens your world, and maybe blows your mind. Keep some control so you’ll recognize yourself afterward. Don’t be afraid to blunder into a great learning experience. June 19 and June 20 are powerful days for you. If your critical mind takes a break on June 19, your instincts could take up the slack. You may be supercharged to the point of hyper on June 20, so do something physically demanding. Your family position gets a boost under the June 27 New Moon. Start something new that makes you happy, and conclude or decide something that makes everyone glad.

People might make a lot of demands on you during the June 12 Full Moon. Do what you can, accept graciously what is offered in exchange, and then let it go. You may feel less secure and grounded from June 21 through June 23. Keep track of your wallet, phone, and keys, and relax. This won’t last long. Siblings (or a few close friends) could descend on you during the June 27 New Moon. Watch your Ps and Qs a few days before. Be well situated and ready to jump in and turn a new corner in a relationship.
Big love is possible at the June 12 Full Moon - so is a generous new lover. Be on guard since these things rarely come without strings attached. You should be able to communicate and network more effectively starting June 20. Try to keep it toned down, though. Avoid getting chatty or overbearing. You can charm your way into almost anything on June 24. Control your temper and impatience on June 25. Money matters are highlighted at the June 27 New Moon. You might have more resources (and fewer problems) at home than you realized. Don’t let anyone or anything spook you.
Try to stick close to home at the June 12 Full Moon. Good things will find you there and tend to last. Don’t wait idly - keep busy in the meantime. The Sun enters your sign on June 21 and brings the first day of summer with it. Feel comfortable in your own skin no matter what’s happening in the world around you. It’s a fresh, powerful New Moon for you on June 27. If you’ve needed to project a stronger self-image of your choosing, you can do it now. Just remember to include your roots and background.
June 7 and June 8 are powerful, if not easy, days. Self-motivation and energy could spike, but you’ll still be able to slow down the pace of life to suit yourself. The June 12 Full Moon could whet your curiosity and set you exploring something that interested you before but has since been dropped or forgotten. If work or office life gets a bit rocky before June 27, the New Moon lets you touch up any rough spots with co-workers or superiors. You could even make a major change in career direction. Don’t be brash, but don’t be anxious, either.
Let the June 12 Full Moon boost your self-confidence and sense of security. Don’t hide from people, but expect to do your best work and thinking out of sight and out of the minds of others. There’s less criticism that way. June 14 could be a busy and emotionally intense day. Stay cool and calm, and refuse to get rattled. A love interest or romantic involvement could appear close to home at the June 27 New Moon. If a friend of a friend of a sibling has a crush on you, don’t be surprised (or rude). Roll with it if it appeals to you.
You could be the center of attention for the first few days of the month, so look good, behave well, and see if you can’t gain some extra respect and good memories out of it. Cravings for big fun might rock your world at the June 12 Full Moon, or perhaps it will be an explosion of creativity. Either way, it won’t be boring. The June 27 New Moon lets you make some personal changes and start a new approach to an old problem without a lot of people interfering with you. You don’t have to tell anyone about anything unless you really trust them.
June 9 and June 10 could pack a punch that brings to a head something that most people have been avoiding. You may not like it either, but the resolution will be well worth it. Have your finances in order - or at least in hand - for the June 12 Full Moon, since this lunation affects your money and material possessions. Think no surprises, and perhaps an opportunity or two for increase. The June 27 New Moon might drag you out of seclusion and push you more into the public. Step up, be yourself, and maybe make some new contacts.
It’s a hot social scene at the June 12 Full Moon. People are going to want to be with you. Don’t have so much fun that you’re exhausted the next day, however. June 16 and 17 could be a roller-coaster ride. Be mentally sharp and bright on June 16, but don’t be surprised if you’re washed away on a tide of emotion the next day. The June 27 New Moon is a great time to start a bunch of small but significant changes or additions to your work routine or diet. Be good to yourself in a million little ways.
Your powers of critical thinking will get a big boost on June 7. You can make things perfect and correct many minor errors. Fully embrace your discriminatory powers. The June 12 Full Moon shines on your family and home environment. Try to keep things quiet, don’t force anything, and let the magic of the night provide its comfort and blessings. If there’s friction with friends before June 27, the New Moon brings you a chance to shift things around socially and make some new friends and different alliances. Satisfy yourself and let the chips fall where they may.
The June 12 Full Moon is all yours. Be prepared to shine and attract attention. There’s no point in being shy or not speaking up. Be nice about it all. You could be drawn into someone else’s affairs just before the New Moon on June 27. Anything you do to help will only benefit you and your family in the long run, but don’t get nervous about the preconceived notions of anyone else. The day after the New Moon, June 28, watch for a special personalized blessing, pop of good luck, or simply a chance to do a very good deed.
The June 12 Full Moon brings extra light into your work and career efforts. Act generously but speak modestly for the best and most long-lasting results. June 18 could be profoundly touchyfeely. Be generous but respectful about hugs. The June 27 New Moon opens doors and provides lots of opportunities for fun and creativity. Psychodrama could peak, too, especially with family, so try to minimize or completely skip that part. Not getting scared or feeling inferior can help. The last few days of the month set you up to do great things for someone else and earn massive karmic brownie points.

The Secondary Education Improvement Project (SEIP) initiated by the Government to increase access to secondary education in under-served districts and improve quality in low-performing senior high schools, has received a $156 million support from the World Bank. What is expected of the SEIP is to build on existing government systems and also on the key objectives of the Education Strategic Plan 2010-2020, especially in its focus on equity and quality of services and on efficiency and accountability of education management. The Ghana Secondary Education Improvement Project is being developed as part of a larger program to support the secondary education sub-sector. Its targets are areas that complement the government’s expenditures. The SEIP supports the Government’s long term vision for expansion of Secondary Education. Government strategy aims to rapidly expand both access and quality of secondary education, making it gradually universal and also progressively free for students who are unable to afford access to secondary education. Besides, construction works for the 200 community day SHSs promised by President John Mahama have started. e

athers play a critical role in the development of their children. Those fathers who are actively involved in raising their children can make a positive and lasting difference in their lives. Here are my top five reasons why active fathers are essential: • Love-love involves more than the words “I love you”; it is demonstrative of quantity and quality of time together. Building emotional bonds that improve self-esteem. •
Model-modeling tends to impact children’s behavior that they witness on a consistent basis. Stability brings balance.
Emotional support-by listening and supporting their children when they experience joy, sadness, anger, fear, and frustration; developing empathic interaction skills and greater moral development.
Physical/Monetary support-children with fathers that put money where the sperm was, have a higher academic succession, reduced teen sexual activity, reduced suicide rate, lower criminality, and clearer understanding of the world around them.
Life Skills-most of the essential skills children need to learn to survive are learned at home. Fathers can teach their children valuable skills that will enable them to grow up to be healthy and productive adults.

Pope John Paul II stated, “It is easier for a father to have children, than it is for children to have a father”, that was said when addressing the State of the World Address many years ago. What was he saying? The role and functionality of a father cannot be replaced by video games, smart phones (or some other form of artificial intelligence), money, and/or “things”. When I think of the word “father”, two other words come to mind immediately, ‘headship’ and ‘protector/ guide’. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “The institution of the family is decisive in determining not only if a person has the capacity to love another individual but in a larger sense whether he is capable of loving…the whole of society rests on this foundation for stability, understanding, and social peace. It is in the family that obligations and values are learned.” There is no institution that is functional, effective, and successful without headship---the father is the “head of the family”. This rather means high level of accountability not a dictatorship or absenteeism. A man can have many children, some have countless, but a man does not truly become ‘a man’ until he becomes ‘a father’. The word “father” is a title of great distinction, reverence, and privilege. A male can have children, but it takes much more to be a father. I am eternally grateful to my fathers, thanks Dad & Pops. e

What Is Breast Cancer? changes in the breast that can make them lumpy, tender, and sore. Cysts are small fluid-filled sacs that can develop in the breast. What Is a Normal Breast?
ancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. When cancer starts in the breast, it is called breast cancer. Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women. Breast cancer screening means checking a woman’s breasts for cancer before she has any symptoms. A mammogram is an X-ray picture of the breast. Mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms. Can Men Get Breast Cancer?
Men can get breast cancer. In men, breast cancer can happen at any age, but is most common in men who are between 60 and 70 years old. Male breast cancer is not very common. Less than 1% of breast cancers occur in men.
What Is Breast Cancer? This diagram shows the parts of the breast and the chest wall. Cancer is a disease in which cells in the body grow out of control. When cancer starts in the breast, it is called breast cancer. Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women. A breast is made up of three main parts: glands, ducts, and connective tissue. The glands produce milk. The ducts are passages that carry milk to the nipple. The connective tissue (which consists of fibrous and fatty tissue) connects and holds everything together. Lumps in the Breast Many conditions can cause lumps in the breast, including cancer. But most breast lumps are caused by other medical conditions. The two most common causes of breast lumps are fibrocystic breast condition and cysts.

Are There Different Kinds of Breast Cancer?
There are different kinds of breast cancer. The kind of breast cancer depends on which cells in the breast turn into cancer. Breast cancer can begin in different parts of the breast, like the ducts or the lobes. Common Kinds of Breast Cancer—
• Ductal carcinoma. The most common kind of breast cancer. It begins in the cells that line the milk ducts in the breast, also called the lining of the breast ducts. • Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). The abnormal cancer cells are only in the lining of the milk ducts, and have not spread to other tissues in the breast. • Invasive ductal carcinoma. The abnormal cancer cells break through the ducts and spread into other parts of the breast tissue. Invasive cancer cells can also spread to other parts of the body. • Lobular carcinoma. In this kind of breast cancer, the cancer cells begin in the lobes, or lobules, of the breast. Lobules are the glands that make milk. • Lobular carcinoma in situ (LCIS). The cancer cells are found only in the breast lobules. Lobular carcinoma in situ, or LCIS, does not spread to other tissues. • Invasive lobular carcinoma. Cancer cells spread from the lobules to the breast tissues that are close by. These invasive cancer cells can also spread to other parts of the body.
For men, signs of breast cancer and treatment are almost the same as for women.
No breast is typical. What is normal for you may not be normal for another woman. Most women say their breasts feel lumpy or uneven. The way your breasts look and feel can be affected by getting your period, having children, losing or gaining weight, and taking certain medications. Breasts also tend to change as you age.
Some warning signs of breast cancer are—
• New lump in the breast or underarm (armpit). • Thickening or swelling of part of the breast. • Irritation or dimpling of breast skin. • Redness or flaky skin in the nipple area or the breast. • Pulling in of the nipple or pain in the nipple area. • Nipple discharge other than breast milk, including blood. • Any change in the size or the shape of the breast. • Pain in any area of the breast. Keep in mind that some of these warning signs can happen with other conditions that are not cancer. e
