This from the movie ‘Blue Crush’- mothers, wives and lovers hate irresponsibly disposed used condoms

Aside  —  Posted: August 3, 2013 in Uncategorized

Pradeep Mule, director of Passco Environmental Solutions Pvt Ltd. who works for the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) said that used condoms and sanitary napkins were biomedical wastes and had to be destroyed. “Rotary Clubs in the city have come forward to collect the napkins and destroy it in incinerators, but there is still no system to destroy the used condoms. In the future we may have to seek the help of Rotary clubs to dispose condoms also.”

Champs, ever seen a complaint against used condoms in a local publication?

Anna Nakale said in an interview with New Era on Wednesday that residents from different locations in Otjiwarongo dump their rubbish at the open area in the Ombili location just a few metres from her family’s shack residence. According to Nakale people dump pills, used condoms, used female sanitary pads, rotten food and sometimes, dead animals.

New Era inspected the dumpsite on Wednesday and can confirm Nakale’s fears. “The children in the location use the used condoms as balloons. My daughter even came with a small dead decomposed dog once,” a very annoyed Nakale told this reporter.

Condom & Wedding Band

Married couples, irresponsible used-condom disposal, children, distaste…Champs we can do more

The biggest reason for the high rate of HIV in married and steady partners is the low use of condoms among this group.

Last week at a conference in Nairobi,  the head of the National Aids STDs Control Programme (Nascop), Dr William Maina, said  that while the rate of new HIV infections had declined by 40 per cent in the last five years, infections among steady partners is today the greatest concern and currently stands at 44.1 per cent.

Condom Dilemma

Posted: July 16, 2013 in Uncategorized

Champs promote the female condom more vigorously

The most widely used contraceptive, the world over, and in many ways the most effective, is condoms. But the use of condoms in contraception presupposes a willingness by the man to put one on.

Condoms and Royalty

Champs lets follow the stars to Kensington Palace for;  a baby is born… What items should our royal baby gift package contain?

Kela, the Social Insurance Institution of Finland, has gifted the Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge its traditional “baby box,” an assortment of newborn products given to all expectant mothers in Finland. The BBC reports that the box, which is big enough to double as a bassinet when emptied, includes baby clothes, a bath towel, a teething toy, bra pads, diaper cream and condoms.

Champs, one wishes our ‘Utumishi kwa Wote- service to all‘ were as zealous as their Guangdong counterparts

Guangdong: The local police arrested female sex workers, for littering the green belt of the town with condoms, used by their customers, thereby defacing the greenery of the place.

The police raid was particularly aimed at putting an end to this littering… The cops were acting on repeated complaints by the cleaning staff of the area, who has been exasperated with having to clean cartloads of condoms every day. In the raid 13 prostitutes were caught.

The stretch from Fashion Avenue to Jihua Road in the Chencheng district has been identified as a green zone, but the beauty of the place has been marred by the unseemly sight of condoms strewn all over.

Condoms and Pets

Ok Champs, if the dog’s owner is concerned….

Deja and I are particularly fond of one of the larger parks in our area. We are frequent visitors; in fact we average about two times a day. We have seen an increase in the number of USED condoms at this particular park. Although both Deja and I are excited that people are practicing safer sex at area parks, we would appreciate proper disposal.

In other words, if I have to remove another used condom from my dogs mouth I think I will go ballistic.

USED Condoms?

Condoms and Waterworks

Posted: June 12, 2013 in Uncategorized

Champs, can we adopt this method and solve the problem of irresponsibly disposed used condoms once and for all?

Consisting of 800 liquid-filled condoms hanging from strings in a public square, the illuminated art project is playfully dubbed, ‘Prophylactic Rain That Doesn’t Wet Anything’

…the (extra-large) condom installation is best described in a cheeky press release as having the “feel and form of silicone breasts, very pleasant to touch and squeeze.”

The work was constructed with the help of volunteers in the area and was left overnight in the square for everyone to […] admire. Watch the video [below] for a closer look at the “balloon” artwork and let us know your thoughts … in the comments.

Condoms and Violence

Posted: June 11, 2013 in Uncategorized

Ok Champs, this is quite interesting… But we can re-phrase it… when there are too many used condoms around, users are less likely to use condoms

Condom companies need to invest in reducing violence.  Specifically, violence against women with children.

Why? First, according to the World Health Organization and the U.S. Center for Disease Control, when there is a threat of violence, women are less likely to negotiate condom use. Second, growing up in a violent home as a child is one of the best predictors of being a victim or perpetrator as an adult. However, if condom companies help reduce violence against women now, these women will be able to negotiate greater use of condoms today and odds are their children will be better clients in the future.
