December 23, 2019
The wellness industry once again told us we could all be healthier, happier and more attractive this year – if only we parted with some hard-earned cash. And if anything, 2019 has been the year of the vagina. 
6 WTF Wellness Products Women Were Told They Needed In 2019
We saw the opening of the world’s first Vagina Museum and big brands starting to accurately use the terms “vagina” and “vulva”. But those steps forward were not enough to stem the flow of the eyebrow-raising, vaj-related merch that followed. They were joined by the usual culprits in anti-ageing, crystal-gazing and “motivation mist” form. 
Here’s a look back at the weird and (occasionally) wonderful products of 2019, that have had us wincing, gasping and giggling in equal measure. The post-sex sponge on a stick California-based FemTech entrepreneur Frances Tang launched ‘come&gone’ in October – an invention to “mop up all the excess fluids” after sex. The disposable absorbent sponge, fastened to a stick lolly pop-style, is designed to be inserted in the vaginal canal, swirled and then thrown away.
We may have scoffed (not least at the name), but the site was soon awash with testimonials from women praising the end of the “bathroom waddle”. We’ll stick to tissues.  
Read more here.The endless CBD products The CBD industry shows no signs of slowing down. You’ll now find oil, beauty products, foods and even vaginal suppositories infused with the cannabis-derived compound for sale. Advocates claim they have a seemingly endless list of health benefits, from easing anxiety to curing acne. But leading experts told HuffPost UK the commercial CBD market is largely unregulated, meaning it’s impossible to know what’s in these products and what impact (if any) they may be having on our health. “Because these products are not licensed as medicines, the controls over what they contain are far less than they would be if they were medicines,” explained Roger Knaggs, associate professor in clinical pharmacy practice at the University of Nottingham.
When it comes to CBD vaginal suppositories, Dr Jen Gunter told HuffPost UK: “We have very little data on CBD for pain. And when there’s no data, it’s very ripe for abuse. What we know right now is that any cannabis product that is designed to be inserted into the vagina is untested, so you should be very wary of any company making health claims.”
Read more here.The stick designed to ‘tighten’ your vagina View this post on InstagramA post shared by Jamu Stick (@jamustick) on Jun 2, 2018 at 12:37pm PDTThe Jamu Stick is designed to be inserted into the vagina to “clean and regenerate” a woman internally, and is said to help “tighten the vagina, strengthen vaginal muscles, and increase libido”.
HuffPost UK originally spotted the product being sold on Etsy, but after gynaecologists labelled it “stupid” and said it could potentially “cause harm”, the online retailer removed the item from its site, saying: “We do not allow content that promotes prohibited medical claims.”
It’s still being sold by the makers of Jamu Stick. At the time, a spokesperson told Refinery29 that claims the product is unsafe are “not true”. Studies to support Jamu Stick’s use were not available, they added, because the stick is “made based on the traditional recipes in home industry”.
Read more here.The vagina spa selling a ‘vajacial’You know what your perfectly clean vagina doesn’t need? A spa day. But the VSPOT Medi Spa, which currently has sites in Philadelphia and New York, announced plans to expand to London this year.
While a branch in the capital is yet to materialise, the treatment list certainly got us talking. Options include the the ‘O-Shot’, which involves having your own blood platelets injected into your vaginal tissue, and the gold vajacial, which involves having wax infused with 24K gold smeared over your pubes and whipped off, before your bikini area is blasted with LED lights. Because everyone wants a glowing vulva, after all.Dr Vanessa Mackay, spokesperson for Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), told us the vagina is designed to clean itself. “The vagina contains good bacteria, which are there to protect it. If these bacteria are disturbed it can lead to infection, such as bacterial vaginosis or thrush, and inflammation.”Read more here. The tuning forks to “restore balance”Reminding us that wellness isn’t all about vaginas, Marie Kondo made her mark on the industry by opening her first online store in November, specialising in what could be called “wellness knick-knacks”. 
The queen of tidying – who found fame telling us to throw out useless items – suggested fans fill that empty space with “meaningful objects”. 
Products on the site – which sells “a collection of items that spark joy for Marie and enhance your everyday routine” – include a selection of crystals and accompanying ‘tuning forks’ costing $75 each – “helping to reset... and restore a sense of balance”. There’s also a $27.00 “motivation mist”. The question is, will these products actually “spark joy”?

This product split readers in September; while some of you said it would make sleeping easier with bigger boobs, others asked: “What the hell are cleavage wrinkles!?”
Do we really need another anti-ageing product aimed at yet another body part?

Star Wars Director Says It's About Time A Woman Makes A Star Wars Movie
Jan 02, 2024
Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Sharmeed Obaid-Chinoy is directing an upcoming Star Wars movie that brings back Daisy Ridley in the role of Rey. Obaid-Chinoy will become the first woman to direct a Star Wars film, dating back to the franchise's origins in the 1970s. Speaking about this, Obaid-Chinoy told CNN that she is "very thrilled" to make the movie and create something that is "very special.""We're in 2024 now, and I think it's about time we had a woman come forward to shape the story in a galaxy far, far away," she said.Obaid-Chinoy won Best Documentary, Short Subjects Academy Awards for Saving Face (2012) and A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness (2015).In 2020, Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy told the BBC that a woman would eventually direct a Star Wars movie, saying that would "absolutely" happen, "without question." Victoria Mahoney was a second unit director on The Rise of Skywalker, but a woman has never claimed a top directing credit on a Star Wars movie.On the TV side of things, The Mandalorian has featured a number of female directors, including Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard. Chow went on to direct the Obi-Wan TV series, too.Another high-profile franchise that has never had a female director is James Bond. Producer Barbara Broccoli and Skyfall director Sam Mendes have both said they want to see a woman direct a future 007 film.As for Obaid-Chinoy's Star Wars movie, little is known about it apart from the fact that Ridley will come back to play Rey. It is expected that this film will be the first of the three new Star Wars films to come to theaters, possibly releasing in December 2025.According to a report, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight is writing the Rey movie, taking over for Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson.

NBA Names Clare Akamanzi CEO Of NBA Africa
Jan 02, 2024 15:29
The NBA named Clare Akamanzi – an accomplished business executive and international trade and investment lawyer – as CEO of NBA Africa. Akamanzi will start her position on Jan. 23, 2024, and report to NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum. In this role, Akamanzi will oversee the NBA’s business and basketball development efforts in Africa and will be responsible for continuing to grow the popularity of basketball, the NBA and the Basketball Africa League (BAL) across the continent, including through grassroots basketball development, media distribution, corporate partnerships, and social responsibility initiatives that improve the livelihoods of African youth and families. For the last six and a half years, Akamanzi was CEO of Rwanda Development Board (RDB), where she spearheaded Rwanda’s economic development by enabling private sector growth. Under Akamanzi’s leadership, RDB implemented several business policy reforms and initiatives that led to significant investment and development for the country, including through partnerships with the BAL, Arsenal FC, Paris Saint-Germain FC, FC Bayern Munich and TIME Magazine, among others. “Clare’s business acumen, international experience and familiarity with basketball and the NBA make her the ideal executive to lead our business in Africa,” says Tatum. “NBA Africa and the Basketball Africa League are well-positioned for continued growth, and under Clare’s leadership we believe these initiatives will transform economies, communities and lives across the continent.” “I’ve seen firsthand how sports can positively impact businesses, families and communities in Africa, and the NBA and the BAL are a perfect example of that,” says Akamanzi. “The NBA has done an incredible job growing basketball and the economy around it across the continent, and I’m excited about the enormous opportunities ahead to build on that momentum.” Previously, Akamanzi was Chief Operating Officer of RDB and Head of Strategy and Policy Unit, Office of the President of the Republic of Rwanda. She has extensive international trade, business and diplomatic experience, having previously worked for the Rwandan Government at the World Trade Organization in Geneva, Switzerland and at the Rwandan Embassy in London, England. Akamanzi has worked or studied in seven different countries and holds an honorary LLD from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, in recognition of her work in Rwanda. She earned a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she was the recipient of three prestigious awards for academic excellence and distinguished contribution to the community: the Lucius N. Littauer Fellows Award, the Raymond & Josephine Vernon Award and the Robert Kennedy Public Service Award. In addition, Akamanzi holds a Master of Laws degree in international trade and investments from the University of Pretoria in South Africa, and a Bachelor of Laws degree from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Akamanzi has served on several company boards, including the World Health Organization (WHO) Foundation, ECOBANK and Aviation, Travel and Logistics (ATL) company. She was recognized by Forbes as one of Africa’s Top 50 Powerful Women in 2020.
