2012-04-26

 

Dear readers,

Starting from May, 2012 EZM Magazine will undergo some major changes to the content we choose to publish. Our content will be more focused on issues relevant to a middle aged audience. What they would want to know and how we can contribute to their lives for the better in entertainment, education, life and living.

We would also like to announce the launch of the “Z.C Teen and Youth magazine”. Z.C a daughter magazine of EZM is compiled by young, talented and ambitious teen editors seeking to educate, entertain and become a voice for teenagers and young adults in Zambia.

Most of our readers ask when we’ll start publishing. Well, we want to make a magazine that will be of high quality and this means taking a bit of time to ensure everything goes smoothly. In the meantime, both magazines will be online but we’re working everyday to make sure that when we launch the first printed hard copy of both magazines, it will be a memorable magazine that we can and will be proud of ten years down the line. We hope to roll out hard copies of both magazines in a few months.

My co-workers and I, want to thank you and we hope that you continue visiting the new EZM Magazine and also The “Z.C Teen and Youth Magazine”.

Once more, I thank everyone who has read the magazine on our website and fanned our Facebook over the last one year- It has been with great pleasure and honour to contribute to the Zambian society and culture. We have stood true to our EZM Magazine morals and ways, “To provide educating, entertaining, exclusive articles to our readers.”

Gospel Corner: How To Handle Temptation 2 of 3

Standard
Gospel Corner: How To Handle Temptation 2 of 3

 

(Matthew 4 vs 5-7)

“Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple.” (Matthew 4:5).

If you think Church is the last place Satan will tempt you from, am very sorry ; you are wrong.
Infact, its that one place he makes people boast, pride and despair.
In Matthew 4 vs 5, Jesus was taken to the HOLY CITY ; Satan surely walks up to the holy of hollies if he has to in order for him to get what he wants.
Its at the highest point of the temple that Jesus was taken. You may be a church elder, youth leader, praise team lead singer or any other minister of any sort. The more people you have looking up to you, the more the devil will want you to fall so you can bring a one third with you; when the devil was exiled in heaven, he brought a one third with him.

This time, Jesus was taken to his comfort zone ; Holy City.
And Satan with his ‘if theory’ once more ;

“If you are the Son of God”, he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'” (Matthew 4:6).

Satan is using scripture from Psalms 91 vs 11 and 12 to push Jesus to trust and rely on The Father for protection.
Some one can be able to quote the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, speak words of great encouragement and faith yet their Heart is filled with enmity for God.
Enough people misquote the scriptures for personal interest, selfishness and alike. One of the most common but misquoted scriptures is Matthew 7 vs 1, ‘Judge not that ye be not judged’, alot of people find this to be a loophole to not speaking out when something is not right saying ‘am not judgemental’. Look up 1Cor 2 vs 5 and understand this better.

In verse 7, Jesus resists the misquote not with urguement or saying, ‘whatever I ask of the Father is given unto me’, but with another quote from Deutronomy 6 vs 16 ; Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'” (Matthew 4:7).

For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.(Hebrews 4:12).
The word of God is a weapon; it can be used for or against you.
Its very dangerous to close your Bible and forget when you don’t understand something. Go and talk to your church elders, pastors, youth leaders or any other minister of the word for clarity. He who asks is ignorant for a while, but he who keeps quite is ignorant forever.
Dont hesitate, approuch someone everytime you have have trouble with understanding.

The Beyonce Diet ( Lemonade Diet)

Standard
The Beyonce Diet ( Lemonade Diet)

Many people want to know how to lose weight on The Lemonade Diet, and if it is even possible or if the diet is just a fad.

 

What is the Lemonade Diet?

 

The Lemonade Diet, also known as the Master Cleanse, has been around for many years. It was first explained in a book that was published in 1976, but has gained popularity in recent years because of a new book on the subject published in 2004.

The diet has also gained popularity as stories of celebrities using it to lose weight have circulated on the Internet and in magazines. Celebrities from Beyonce Knowles to Robin Quivers have credited the Lemonade Diet with helping them lose weight.

The Lemonade Diet is more accurately a fast, because you aren’t really eating anything when you are on the diet. It is meant to help cleanse the body of toxins, and allow the user to lose weight at the same time.

The diet involves drinking a sort of lemonade made with lemons, purified water, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. The drink is consumed throughout the day, and laxative tea is taken in the evenings.

Most people follow the Lemonade Diet for about 10 days, though some use the diet for as many as 40 days.

How to Lose Weight on the Lemonade Diet

When the diets is followed strictly, there’s really no question as to how to lose weight on the lemonade diet. You simply won’t be getting enough calories to not lose weight if you stay on this diet for several days.

This diet is tough on the digestive system and you will see a big increase in bowel movements during the cleanse, which is really what this “diet” was intended to be. It’s not really meant to be used as a diet, and any weight loss that happens while on it will probably be erased quickly thereafter.

That’s because once you start eating again your body will think that it has to prepare for another starvation cycle (which is what going on a fast is) and you’ll quickly gain back what weight you lost, and maybe more, unless you make a real effort to follow a healthy diet to maintain that weight loss.

The Lemonade Diet is not a long-term solution for weight loss. While it can help you to lose a few pounds temporarily, as any diet that involves not eating would, it’s not a permanent solution.

It’s a much better idea to think about the Lemonade Diet under its other name, Master Cleanse Diet, because the real idea behind the diet is cleaning impurities from the body, not losing weight.

Detoxification

The Master Cleanse is a detoxification process, which means that it aims to get toxins and other unsavory things out of the body. Those who regularly do detoxification like the Master Cleanse say that they feel more energetic and think more clearly after the process than they did before.

The only trouble is, it takes a lot of work for the body to eliminate the bad things that have been accumulating in it for so long. There are many cleansing or detoxification symptoms that you may experience, including:

  • Hunger or food cravings
  • Irritability
  • Tiredness
  • Aches and pains
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Hot or burning bowel movements
  • Headaches

Those who are experienced with detoxification describe these symptoms as signs that you are eliminating significant toxins from your body and say that it is likely you will feel much better then next day after having these symptoms.

If you are trying to figure out how to lose weight on the Lemonade Diet and you aren’t really interested in the detoxification effects, you might want to consider if a different diet plan is better for you, since losing weight on this kind of plan is difficult and usually not long-lasting. If you want to lose a lot of weight and keep it off permanently, this diet is probably not the best choice for you.

couple stating that the partner is a second hand material and he/she isn’t
good enough, and in return the other partner starts to state the qualities
that the friends and onlookers publicly disapproved, and showers the
disapproved partner with blessings.

QUICK SKIN FACTS

QUICK SKIN FACTS

 

 

1. Clean your make up brushes every two weeks to remove bacteria and residue. If you

don’t, you just keep re-applying the filthy junk to your face!

 

2. Use a face primer before applying foundation to your skin. This minimizes the

formation of large pores and wrinkles.

 

3. Always use clean face towels for your face and body. Dirty towels promote bacteria

and germs that can cause acne.

 

4. Having greasy hair can be a factor in having oily skin which leads to blackheads.

 

5. Feed your face! Avocados contain vitamins A and C that can help slow the signs of

aging. A facial mask of honey and lemon enhances skin glow.

 

Now you have it! Get to work on these 5 easy D.I.Ys!

Why Never To Date Married Men

Standard
Why Never To Date Married Men

Dating married men has become a trend that most of our college ladies use in order to get the basic needs they cannot afford to get by themselves. This is degrading to society and it is the reason why many marriages are not working out right now. EZM thought it could be wise to educate the ladies on why they shouldn’t date married men in order to help them see with reason and not engage in such.

 
-Just like he started cheating on his wife after seeing you, he will do the same to you immediately he sees a new face fresher than you. The reason he cheats on his wife is because he wants some fresh experience and so what makes you special? Try to complain about it and he will dump you right there without second thoughts and think of how embarrassing it can be when he tells you to stop complaining because you are not his wife, Ouch!

 
-Most ladies have the wrong misconception that all married men are rich, just because your friend is dating a rich married man doesn’t guarantee you the same.Entering an adulterous affair with aim of gaining is wrong because you will end up more depressed that you were before, he will just use you and dump you. Some of these men cannot even provide for their own families, how sure can you be that he will provide for you. They may pretend to be rich at first but after seeing your nakedness, they will just walk away without giving you anything. If You try to ask they will ask  you if you are a prostitute to ask for money each time they have sex with you.

 
-Unwanted luggage’s also come hand in hand with married men, not only are there diseases that are deadly, but also think about the implications of unwanted pregnancies.Why should you bring on earth a child you did not legitimately get, you will torture the innocent child’s mind and you will not even manage to fend for both you and the baby. People in society will look down on you and the one who impregnated you. A female mostly suffers for such acts, and not only this, imagine you are in class and someone comes to pull you hair out because you are dating her husband. It really destroys your image.

 
-Dating a married man means you are breaking a home, his marital home. Think about the woman that cries each day and night for her husband to just look at her for once.Every night she cannot sleep because she is waiting for her husband to get home safely when all the time his with you. You will even create hatred in his children’s hearts because no child wants to see his mother suffering. It’s good to realize that you are a woman and one day you will get married, what if your husband starts doing the same to you?  Life gives you back exactly what you throw at it and so just think of how you would feel in that situation.

 
-If you are ever dating married men and go to all sorts of places with them then chances are high that you will lose out on your right suitors. It may look as though guys at your level don’t notice such but word spreads like bush fire and so you cannot cover up. Immediately they know this, they will lose interest in you and will give you cold shoulders. They consider you used material and since no man wants a used product, you will probably end up alone and depressed with time. You may have all the attention at some point but time flies and you might even failing to choose who you want and go for big-buyers but when you finally get tired of playing, no man you would want will be there to love you.

-As long as the person you are dating has a wife, you will always be a second option for him instead of being someone else’s  first option. You will always be the girl he calls when his wife refuses to give him some. No matter how hard you try, you can never be his number one because the first cut is the deepest.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SEX AND LOVE MAKING

Standard
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SEX AND LOVE MAKING

Love-making is defined as the copulation of two individuals normally a man and a woman to express their strong emotions towards each other, in such cases the two are willing to endure the pleasures and pain brought by sexual intercourse, Sex on the other hand  is having sexual intercourse just for mare  pleasure. Most people don’t know the difference between sex and love-making and so to help you realize the difference between such, EZM magazine has decided to help you recognize them by listing them down.

·        You can only make love to one person no matter how many people you have sex with,no matter how many times you mess around with different people, there is always that special person that moves you sexually and makes you feel fulfilled sexual wise. This person gives you good thoughts whenever you think of the things you do together and it makes you want to do it over and over again with them, they are more like a sexual appetizer.

 

·        Sex does not necessarily mean you are in love with someone, it can just be to ease yourself, please someone, or serve as a trade where you agree to be friends with benefits.

 

·        Love-making requires the two individuals involved to fully give in with all their emotions without holding back and don’t feel restricted to trying out what they want. If you make love to someone, you won’t feel embarrassed of what your partner would feel because you can trust them with your body. Love-making requires special timing and a comfortable place like a bedroom in order to cater both individual needs.

 

·        Sex can be done anywhere regardless of place or time, it can be in cars, bushes,toilets and so on, it is also mostly done within a short phrase of time.

 

·        Love–making takes great interest in knowing whether your partner is enjoying or comfortable and it is mostly done with special care not to hate the other, sex on the other hand  does not take time to study what the other person is feeling or to analyze the mood of the person.It is mostly done to satisfy the initiator and mostly selfish in that it is sometimes one sided.

 

·        Love-making ignites special and sweet memories of the person even when you are not together, you will have a strong attraction to the other person because they mean so much to you and this teaches you to appreciate and value your partner.

 

·        Sex does have to bring about good memories and you can do it with anyone at any place. It can just be done because you are bored, stressed, form of exercise or just to learn more about your sexuality and how far you can go sexual wise.

 

·        Most sexual relationships end up miserable for the people involved unless if it was just a contract or form of trade. Otherwise most people who have sexual encounters in the name of a fling end up in tragic situations in that one of the two falls in love with the other or starts to feel more than just a fling and hence jealousy and insecurity starts to creep up. Love making draws people close and connects them emotionally as some kind of attachment.

So-which one are you having, pleasure or commitment?
