I've reviewed the now-substantial research literature on hook-ups and discovered that the more the media (and some researchers) say that young adult sex has changed, the more it’s actually remained pretty much the same. The media did not use the term “hook-up” in a sexual/relationship context until the late 1990s, and it did not spread widely until 2006.Which raises a question: Did something change in young American sexuality during the first decade of the current century?
The Ooni of Ife is the spiritual head of the Yoruba.
Nigeria’s three largest ethnic groups, the Hausa/Fulani, Yoruba, and Igbo, represent 71 percent of the population.
Of the remaining 29 percent of the population, about one-third consists of groups numbering more than 1 million members each.
Most Hausa are Muslims engaged in agriculture, commerce, and small-scale industry.
While most live in smaller towns and villages, others occupy several larger indigenous cities.
