  5. Health Professionals: Ban smoking in public places Accra, May 31, GNA - Health professionals on Tuesday called on government and parliament to pass a legislation to ban smoking in public places in the country.

The countries' leaders said in a joint interview that Germany was responsible for the war, adding that it also suffered greatly.

  24. Just a quick update on what has happened on my birthday and what I wanted to share here: On Sunday (a day after) we went to a lake and had some ice cream. The cool thing about it was: My car's gauge showed "Hey, it's time for a refill" and my grandmother said, well then let's have it refilled. What's the special thing about that you over there may wonder... Normally I always have my car refilled for maybe $10; I just can't afford more. But she gave me a full refill worth € 50 ($60). Seeing the gauge's needle go to "1/1" does maybe happen once a year. Normally it hardly moves out of the red a
