  • Female orgasm mystery ‘solved’: Scientists finally find out why women experience sexual pleasure

    Scientists have finally worked out why women have orgasms – and it’s all thanks to monkeys.

    For years, researchers have wondered why exactly the female orgasm exists. It plays no part in reproduction and is functionally redundant, unlike in many other animals.

    But scientists now say that the experience is an afterthought of evolution, left from our ape ancestors.

    In many mammals, the male starts ovulation by sexually stimulating the female and leading her to become fertile. But in humans that link has been lost, since the clitoris shifted from inside the vaginal canal to the outside, which at the same time appeared to remove the link between orgasms and reproduction.

    Scientists have been puzzled because there doesn’t appear to be any association between the orgasm and whether sex leads to reproduction or the number of children that might be conceived. So the scientists instead explored the hormones that are released during the act – and found that those same hormones play an important role in ovulation in many other mammals.

    That led the researchers to believe that the trait now called the orgasm had another function in the past, helping trigger ovulation.

    "Prior studies have tended to focus on evidence from human biology and the modification of a trait rather than its evolutionary origin,” said Yale Biology Institute researcher Gunter Wagner.

    But the scientists say that it is important to note that the evolutionary ancestor of the climax isn’t necessarily the same as it looks today.

    "It is important to stress that it didn’t look like the human female orgasm looks like now," said Mihaela Pavlicev, who helped lead the study. "We think that [the hormonal surge] is the core that was maybe modified further in humans."

    But the research worked by identifying the surge itself, rather than the thing that’s now known as the orgasm. It is often difficult to find the same trait in different species because they change with time, but by identifying the surge they could track it through history.

    "We think the hormonal surge characterises a trait that we know as female orgasm in humans,” Pavlicev said. "This insight enabled us to trace the evolution of the trait across species.

    Arsenal set price cap for Lacazette

    Arsenal will not increase their offer for Alexandre Lacazette above £33.7million (€40million), according to Squawka.

    The Gunners have already had a £29million approach for the Lyon front man turned down - but they are expected to come back with a second bid.

    But they will refuse to go higher on the price, should their latest transfer attempt be shunted.

    They will cap their spending at the same price as what Chelsea paid for Michy Batushuayi, as Arsene Wenger reportedly scouted both men and saw them at a similar level.

     

    United to target Matuidi if they miss out on Pogba

     

    Manchester United will target Blaise Matuidi if the Paul Pogba deal falls through,reports the Manchester Evening News.

     However, United are confident that they will complete the Pogba deal before the Community Shield and have him in their squad for the new season.

     But frustrated manager Jose Mourinho is getting impatient and could soon give a deadline for the negotiations to be completed.

     It means United would then turn to their No.2 midfield option in Matuidi, who is expected to be allowed to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

  • Ethiopia getting set to host Opex 2016 for first time in Africa

    Preparations are in full swing for the Omani Products Exhibition (Opex) 2016, scheduled to take from April 11 to 14, at Millennium Hall, in Ethiopia’s capital city of Addis Ababa, under the auspices of the Ethiopian minister of finance and economic development.

    Dr Ali bin Mas’oud Al Sunaidi, Oman’s minister of commerce and industry, in addition to government officials will be present at the exhibition.

     

    Ayman Al Hasani, vice-chairman for economic and branches affairs at Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OCCI), and head of the Opex Organising Committee said that more than 100 Omani firms are set to participate in Opex 2016 representing various industries including natural resources, minerals, wood products, manufacturing products, furniture, food, medical and pharmaceuticals, fertilisers, plastic and metal equipment, perfume, leather, and logistics.

    Al Hasani added that Opex will be held for the first time outside the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states following the success of previous Opex events held in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE.

    “An integrated plan has been put in place to facilitate logistics, customs and other related issues for the participants,” Al Hasani affirmed. “This event represents one of the major steps to promote Omani products in the African continent.

    The Organising Committee aspires to promote the Sultanate’s industrial sectors in Ethiopia and Africa through strengthening partnerships with various regional and international institutions. Additionally, the committee seeks to play a pivotal role in stimulating trade movement between the Sultanate and Ethiopia, which eventually develop businesses of local companies and expand their trade to various regional and global markets,” he pointed out.

    “Opex 2016 seeks to develop mutual objectives of the two governments and deepen comprehensive partnership, in addition to opening up prospects for further cooperation among similar companies in Oman and Ethiopia, and increasing the volume of trade exchange between the two countries,” Al Hasani added.

    Nasima Al Balushi, Ithraa director general of Export Development, emphasised that Addis Ababa was chosen to be the destination of Opex 2016 following studies been conducted to determine the added value and the advantages of East African markets in general and the Ethiopian market in particular.

    “Ithraa, which is one of the bodies that form OPEX Organising Committee, in addition to OCCI and Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (PEIE), has implemented a marketing study on the Ethiopian market to provide comprehensive facts on the market in order to familiarise the Omani exporters, and on the other hand brief the exporters in Ethiopia on the promising Omani products. The study indicated that there are significant opportunities for Omani exporters to benefit from in the fast growing Ethiopian market,” Al Balushi added.

    Al Balushi explained that based on the results of the study, an Omani trade delegation held b2b meetings, in Addis Ababa in an effort to strengthen and develop the volume of Omani non-oil exports to the Ethiopian market, find promising opportunities and deals, and boost trade relations with Ethiopia in line with the plan to develop non-oil Omani origin products.

    “A group of Omani companies, which participated in these meetings achieved a number of deals. Around 50 per cent of Omani exporters assigned a commercial agent for their products in Ethiopia on day one of the business to business meetings. Besides, one of the companies signed a MoU with one of the major importing Ethiopian companies for foodstuff. These positive results following the b2b meetings have encouraged Opex Organising Committee to choose Addis Ababa as the destination of Opex 2016,” Al Balushi noted.
