Top Places To See In Accra

  • Black Star Square 

Black Star Square, also known as Independence Square, is located in Accra, Ghana and is now the site for all the major military and civic parades in the Ghanaian capital. It was completed in 1961 to coincide with the state visit of Queen Elizabeth II. The young Queen was keen to keep the unstable African republic within the Commonwealth, and was adamant on making the tour of Ghana despite a spate of bombings that were rocking Accra in protest of Nkrumah’s rule.

From the first parades in honor of the Queen’s visit all the way up to the present day, Black Star Square has hosted all of the country’s major national public gatherings, national festivals, military parades, concerts, and occasional fashion shows. None of these are more important than the Independence Day parades held in the square each year on March 6.

  • James Town Lighthouse, Accra 

Today’s lighthouse was built instead of an old Jamesfort Light dating back to 1871. It is located in the James Town district of Accra and was erected in the 1930s. The Lighthouse is the highest point of the place, and it is seen from a distance up to 16 nautical miles. It is a stone structure, 30 meters high, and is still operating today. Taking photos of the construction is forbidden, but you can get official permission.

Located in the heart of Accra in the University of Ghana is the Legon Botanical Gardens, a beautiful, dynamic outdoor play space for all ages where nature and fun collide.

This dynamic Garden provides several recreational activities for the public and constantly adding new ones. The managers always give you reason to visit again and again. The facility has a colorful first class playground for children and a rope walk session for them also with genial staff.

  • Makola Market

Makola Market was constructed in Accra in 1924 and stood at the heart of the urban Ghanaian life. The market was the main wholesale and retail marketplace in Accra, the epicenter of trade in the country and one of the nation’s most important social and cultural institutions.

On 18 August 1979, 55 years after its creation, Makola Market was destroyed. The Rawlings government that agreed on the demolition of the centre of trade in Ghana thought that devastating Makola would improve the economy. Indeed, there were accusations that various products considered banned in Ghana were being sold in the Makola Market. In this way, the market women were accused of Ghana’s economic problems.

  • Labadi Beach 

Come the weekend people flock to Accra’s most popular beach to play ball games, frolic in the surf, go horse riding along the sand or party to loud dance music in the bars and restaurants that line the shore. Needless to say, if you’re looking for a quieter experience, come on a weekday. Labadi is about 8km east of Accra; to come here, take a tro-tro (minibus) at Nkrumah Circle in Central Accra or along the Ring Rd.

Apple revealed new MacBook Pros, and nearly everything about them has changed.

Most importantly, the MacBook Pro laptops come with Apple’s new chips. That’s right, its chips, plural, because Apple launched two new chips: The powerful M1 Pro, and the even more powerful M1 Max.

The M1 Pro has either six or eight high-performance cores and two efficiency cores, giving it 70 percent better performance compared to last year’s M1. It also has a 14-core or 16-core GPU, which Apple claims gives it two times better graphics performance compared to the M1. The M1 Pro supports a maximum 32GB of RAM memory.

Then there’s the M1 Max, which has more memory bandwidth, and 32 GPU cores, giving it 4x better graphics performance than the M1. It supports a maximum of 64GB of RAM memory.

But this time, the MacBook Pro hasn’t only been upgraded on the inside. The devices come in new sizes — 14.2 and 16.2 inches — and have a new keyboard that has physical function keys instead of the Touch Bar.

The display has also been upgraded, and the rumors were true: The new MacBook Pro laptops have an iPhone-like notch on top, which hosts the new 1080p FaceTime camera. This is because the bezels on the displays have shrunk to just 3.5mm, which means that those display sizes were made possible in nearly the same-sized enclosure as on the previous models.

The 16.2-inch model has a resolution of 3,456 x 2,234 pixels, for a total of 7.7 million pixels, while the 14.2-inch model has a resolution of 3,024 x 1,964 pixels for a total of 5.9 million pixels. Both displays have the same mini-LED tech seen in the iPad Pro, and support an adaptive refresh rate up to 120Hz.

As expected, the new MacBooks now have a ton of ports: On one side, you get HDMI, Thunderbolt 4, and an SD card reader. On the other, there’s a headphone jack, two more Thunderbolt ports, and yes, the MagSafe connector has returned.

Speakers and microphones have also been upgraded, and the new MacBooks are far more versatile when it comes to connecting additional displays; with the M1 Pro chip, you can connect two additional XDR displays, and with the M1 Max chip, you can connect up to three XDR displays and an additional 4K TV.

As for battery life, Apple claims the smaller model can handle up to 17 hours of video playback and up to 11 hours of wireless web browsing. The larger model can do up to 21 hours of video playback, and up to 14 hours of wireless web browsing.

The 14-inch MacBook Pro starts at $1,999, though the price goes up to $2,899 when configured with the M1 Max chip and 32GB of RAM. The larger, 16-inch MacBook Pro starts at $2,499 when configured with the M1 Pro chip, and it starts at a whopping $3,499 when configured with the M1 Max chip.

How to AirDrop from iPhone to Mac and Mac to iPhone

Published

, How to AirDrop from iPhone to Mac and Mac to iPhone, Frederick Nuetei

AirDrop lets users wirelessly send files between Apple devices. Because it uses Bluetooth technology, it relies on devices being in close physical proximity to each other. It’s a handy way to quickly share files, photos, etc. without the need to draft an email or message. Plus, AirDrop files are encrypted, so it’s also secure.

Make sure you follow these steps beforehand so that you’re good to go:

  • Turn on Bluetooth and WiFi. You do not need to be connected to a WiFi network but the WiFi setting does need to be on. Also, turn off your hotspot if it’s on. AirDrop won’t work otherwise. 
  • Make sure that the devices are within range of each other — no more than about 30 feet apart.
  • Check the AirDrop sharing settings of the device that is receiving the file. The settings are “Receiving Off,” “Contacts Only,” or “Everyone.” If you choose to only receive files from contacts, make sure that the owner of the device sending the file is saved as a contact. You can adjust these settings in your Control Center or by going to “Settings” > “General” > “AirDrop.”

How to AirDrop from iPhone to Mac

Open the file that you want to AirDrop, then tap the share icon, which is the square with the upwards-facing arrow.

That will show you all of the ways you can share a file. Tap the AirDrop icon, which is the concentric circles with a triangle cut out at the bottom.

From there, select the user/device that you’d like to send it to. Tapping the user/device automatically starts the AirDrop process. If no devices are showing up, double-check that all of your settings are correct.

To accept an AirDrop on your Mac, a preview window will pop up on your device asking you to accept or decline the transfer. If you accept the AirDrop, it will show up in the same app it was sent from (a photo sent via AirDrop will show up in your photos app.)

How to AirDrop from Mac to iPhone

There are a few different ways you can share a file via AirDrop on a Mac.

1. From Finder

Locate the file you want to share. Instead of opening it, control-click/right-click on the file. In the dropdown, go to “Share” then choose AirDrop from the menu.

2. From the open file

If the file that you want to share is already open, you can AirDrop from the toolbar of the open application. Find “Share” then AirDrop from the pop-out menu. The “Share” button will usually be under “File,” but might be its own section in the Toolbar or in another section, depending on the app.

3. Drag and drop

Last but not least, in the “Finder” window, you can drag and drop the file into AirDrop. Click and hold down on the file and drag it into the AirDrop section located under “Favorites.” Still holding down on the file, drag and drop it over the receiving device.
