, Nogokpo: What you need to know about the sacred town feared by many, Frederick Nuetei

Nogokpo, to many Ghanaians is the name of a famous deity somewhere in the Volta region of Ghana. Nogokpo is the name of a small town in the Ketu South Municipal of the Volta region, just along the Trans-West African Coastal Highway. The small village is one of the most mentioned villages in Ghana because of the presence of a famous shrine located in the village.

According to legend and historians of the towns, the shrine was brought to the village after a heated misunderstanding between the townsfolk and their then chief, Torgbui, in the early 1900s. Since then the shrine has become their spiritual protector offering them protection against evil spirit as well as resolving differences and offering justice to the aggrieved and cheated. Incidents of crime such as stealing is almost not existence in the small town due to the fear of being punished severely  by the gods of the shrine, especially in cases where the victim consults the shrine and demands for the thieve or perpetrator to be punished severely.

While the town may not be a huge tourism destination due to the fear it strikes in people, there are a few brave ones who occasionally make the trip to Nogokpo to have a closer look at the shrine that imparts fear into all and sundry, whether old or young, rich or poor. The very few who have visited the town to go and have a look at the famous shrine have spoken highly of the town people and how friendly and welcoming they are. This may be the time to finally kill your curiosity and go have a look at the shrine that gets men to shiver at the mere mention of its name.

What is new in iOS 15?

Published

, What is new in iOS 15?, Frederick Nuetei

Apple in June 2021 introduced the latest version of its iOS operating system, iOS 15, which was released on September 20. iOS 15 introduces new features for FaceTime calls, tools to reduce distractions, a new notifications experience, added privacy features, complete redesigns for Safari, Weather, and Maps, and more.

Notifications have been redesigned in iOS 15, adding contact photos for people and larger icons for apps. To reduce distraction, a notification summary collects notifications together for delivery at an appropriate time and arranges notifications by priority.

This year’s update is also a bit different because you don’t have to update to iOS 15. If you’re fine with iOS 14, Apple won’t force you to make the jump to iOS 15. You’ll still receive security patches. Some people will simply dismiss iOS 15 altogether.

It seems like a small change but it actually says a lot about the current state of iOS. Apple considers iOS as a mature platform. Just like you don’t have to update your Mac to the latest version of macOS if you don’t want to, you can now update at your own pace.

iOS should also be considered as a mature platform for app developers. iOS 15 adoption will be slower than usual as people won’t necessarily update to iOS 15 right away. Apps should potentially work on older iOS versions for longer.

Of course, users will ‘update’ to a new version of iOS when they buy a new iPhone and replace their old iPhone.

Focusing on you instead of your phone

One of the biggest change in iOS 15 is the ability to change your Focus from Control Center. It’s a surprisingly powerful feature with a lot of options and tweaks. I would say it doesn’t feel like an Apple feature.

But it’s definitely one of the most interesting features of iOS 15. Chances are you spend a lot of time with your phone and your device requires a lot of attention from you. With this new feature, it reverses the balance and puts you back in charge.

‘Do Not Disturb’ users are already quite familiar with the idea that you can silence notifications when you don’t want them. If you want to keep using ‘moon mode’ with iOS 15, you don’t have to change anything.

But you can now create additional Focuses. By default, Apple suggests a few Focuses — Work, Sleep, Driving, Fitness, Gaming, Mindfulness, Personal and Reading. Each Focus is customizable to your needs and you can create new Focuses from scratch.

When you turn on a specific Focus, it basically blocks notifications by default. You can then add people and apps so that notifications from those people and apps still go through. App developers can also mark a notification as time sensitive so that it always goes through. I hope they won’t abuse that feature.

There are three more settings that you can activate. First, you can optionally share that your notifications are currently silenced in Messages and compatible third-party apps. Second, you can hide home screen pages altogether. Third, you can hide notifications from the lock screen and hide badges from the home screen.

Focus gets particularly interesting when you realize that you can couple specific Focuses with automation features. For instance, you can automatically turn on ‘Sleep’ at night or you can automatically turn on ‘Work’ when you arrive at work.

Power users will also have a lot of fun setting up a Focus and pairing it with a Shortcut. For instance, you could use Shortcuts to open the Clock app when you turn on Sleep mode. You get it, this new feature has a lot of depth and beta users have just started scratching the surface.

How to set your iPhone Do Not Disturb settings

Published

, How to set your iPhone Do Not Disturb settings, Frederick Nuetei

Do Not Disturb is a helpful iPhone setting for periods when you do not want to be interrupted, such as meetings, formal events or at night. This setting only has an effect if your iPhone is locked.

You can schedule Do Not Disturb to repeat at the same time each day, and to set exceptions for certain types of calls to ring through. Understanding Do Not Disturb can help you prevent your iPhone from making unwanted disruptions in your day-to-day life. Thankfully, it’s easy to enjoy the positive parts of Do Not Disturb while still ensuring those important calls come through.

Set up Do Not Disturb

There are two ways to set up Do Not Disturb on your iPhone: turning it on and off one time, or having it turn on and off on a schedule. To turn it on just once, you can swipe up on your iPhone and press the moon button. When you’re ready to turn it off, just click the moon button again.

To have Do Not Disturb stick to a schedule, you’ll need to go to your settings and scroll down to Do Not Disturb. Here, you’ll have an option to schedule it to turn on and off at whatever time you’d like.

Make your exceptions

You might want to make exceptions to Do Not Disturb, like I do for my roommate and my immediate family members. To do that, you’ll want to first decide who should and should not make the list. Is it really important for all of your friends to be able to contact you while your Do Not Disturb is on? That’s your call!

Open the contact card

The first step you’ll have to take is to open up the contact card of the people you want to be able to contact you even when your Do Not Disturb is on.

Edit

Click “Edit” on the contact you choose. This will allow you to change anything about the contact, including their name, number, notes, and, yes, even bypassing a Do Not Disturb order.

Emergency bypass

Next, you’ll scroll down and click “ringtone.” You’ll see an option at the very top labeled “Emergency Bypass,” which allows sounds and vibrations from that contact even when Do Not Disturb is on. It’s important to note here, that it bypasses everything. That means if you don’t have Do Not Disturb on but your ring switch is set to silent, sounds and vibrations will still come through from this person. Once you’re all set, you’ll click “Done.” Voila! Now, you won’t be disturbed — except by the people you want to be disturbed by.
