In the game of attraction, opposite genders usually have their personal preferences of what makes the other attractive.

Some prefer physical attributes while others prefer traits that are more than skin-deep. Here are some features and traits that women find attractive in men.

Football: the weird game where grown men/women in short shorts and a jersey, run around a large field, chasing after a small and inflated round object – spitting and tackling each other...all in the bid to kick the object into some kind of net-like cave.

Usually, a person stands inside this cave hoping to stop the object from entering the space. Another person, perhaps a kind of prefect, also stands outside the lines of the field watching the players, waiting to blow a whistle, and possibly wave a yellow or red card at a select number on the field who are being a little too naughty.

One of Bob Dylan’s most memorable songs, Positively 4th Street starts with the immortal lyrics “you’ve got a lot of nerve to say you are my friend...” the song is a rant against a false friend of his, and when I first heard it.

I was struck. Struck by a feeling of recognition, of that there was something intrinsically relatable about the song.

All of us, many times in our lives come across people who present themselves as friends. We come to trust them, spend time with them, but after a while, for whatever reason, their true nature shows itself.

It’s an unfortunate part of life: Some people cheat. And, while no one wants to be the person who was cheated on, people have a sick fascination with what goes down during cheating, when it happens, and how it happens.

Now, a new survey is looking to answer some of those questions.

For the study, UK website Superdrug Online Doctor asked 2,000 people questions about cheating and came up with some surprising answers.

How important is social media when applying for jobs? Is anyone really bothering to look at your LinkedIn profile?

Well, it’s been found that 93% of hiring managers look at social media profiles before deciding whether or not to hire someone.

Do you ever feel worse about yourself after scrolling through Facebook or Twitter?

Does it seem as though everyone is leading a life better than your own?

It’s all too easy to get jealous of others on social media. Vacation photos, engagement announcements, wedding shoots – it can be enough to make you seriously envious.

The Convention People’s Party (CPP) has rejected comments by former president John Agyekum Kufuor that Ghana’s first leader Kwame Nkrumah “virtually killed” democracy during his reign.

Kufuor who governed Ghana from 2001-2009 told the leadership of the International Democratic Union (IDU) which paid a courtesy call on him at his office in Accra recently that Nkrumah almost plunged the country into poverty and chaos.

He said by 1963, “our then President Nkrumah, left of centre politician, moved the country into a one-party state with a lot of intolerance; he built a whole prison just 22 miles of Accra for detention of political opponents.

Former Minister of Foreign Affairs Madam Hannah Tetteh has disagreed with statements by the second deputy Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin that politicians are corrupt because of the existing system.

The former Majority Leader on Starr Chat Wednesday told host Bola Ray that “we should all admit, we are all corrupt, it is a fact, because of the system.”

The opposition National Democratic Congress needs a fresh face to lead it to the 2020 general elections if it is to make an impact, a former National Security Advisor has said.

Brig. Gen. Joseph Nunoo-Mensah said Ghana has become too stale and needs a break from the norm which has pervaded the country's leadership for some time now.

He said the achievement of Emmanuel Macron in France whom he said is shaking up the system there should serve as an example to the opposition party and the country.
