A biomedical scientist by training, Matengo, a Zain Africa Challenge Scholar and a Duke of Edinburgh Award holder, is a versatile writer with a passion for literature that is only rivaled by the love of the outdoors.

Though not exactly a weightlifter, Matengo regularly hits the gym to keep fit, and from his experience he can say this about exercises; aerobics are far more effective than weight lifting in keeping the whole body toned and fit.

His current areas of interest in medical research include comparative studies of substances in khat (Catha edulis) and “muguka”, substances known/believed to have amphetamine-like compounds. That and the creation of a CO/CO2 filter that can be retrofitted onto the exhaust pipe of vehicles to reduce pollution.


Kelli Cooper is a writer who has covered a range of topics from social media to alternative medicine. As someone who spends copious amounts of time online, she has learned a thing or two about using blogging and using social media effectively. Her dream of traveling the world prompted her writing career and she is grateful to be able to make money anywhere she can grab an interent connection.


Matthew Papaconstantinou (or Matthew Denos for short) is a biologist.  Until recently, he was working as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri.  His research on cardiovascular disease, and specifically the role of the blood coagulation factors, was supported by two grants that he was awarded by the American Heart Association.

Matthew is particularly interested in the field of obesity and the ongoing research on obesity treatment.  He believes that proper education as well as emotional fitness can help people achieve a better health. He enjoys writing articles based on latest scientific papers (like this one) and enjoys posting them on Weight Loss Triumph, a website that aspires to provide solid information from credible sources on weight loss topics.

His favorite sport is windsurfing.
