Her words were, 'I had to give your kids, or your students, the answers because they're dumb as hell,'" Jones told test-cheating tribunal.

I know this is serious but I can't help it; hehehehehehehe.

LADY GAGA ON THE COVER OF VOGUE IS PHOTOSHOPED

Don't be fooled by how perfect celebrities look, mostly it's the power of photoshop. Lady Gaga donned a curve-hugging gown that seemed to perfectly accentuate her hourglass figure for the cover of Vogue's September issue, but a behind-the-scenes video of Gaga's hair-raising photo shoot shows the singer may have gotten the airbrush treatment. Hmm, they have slimmed down her waist, arm and jawline.


Chai, but they can fit to fool us en.

AURORA SHOOTING: SUSPECT CALLED A PSYCHIATRIST MINUTES BEFORE SHOOTING

Defense attorneys revealed in court on Thursday that the suspect in the Colorado shooting that left 12 people dead and 58 wounded, tried unsuccessfully to call his university psychiatrist nine minutes before he opened fire during a Batman movie premiere.

James Holmes placed the call to a number at a hospital at the University of Colorado,  where he could reach psychiatrist Lynne Fenton, defense attorney said.
It wasn't clear why he called Fenton, and she wasn't immediately available to talk to him. Holmes is accused in the July 20 shooting that left 12 people dead and 58 wounded.

The detail about the call came out during a hearing about Holmes' relationship with Fenton, to whom he mailed a package containing a notebook that reportedly contained violent descriptions of an attack.

Omg!! If only she had taken the call, the disaster might have been avoided.

JOURNALISTS MOURN VANGUARD ENTERTAINEMENT EDITOR

The Nigerian media was thrown into mourning yesterday over the sudden death of the Vanguard Newspaper’s Entertainment Editor, Ogbonnaya Amadi. The journalist, who would have marked his 50th birthday by December this year, was said to have died in his office after an asthma attack. His colleagues made efforts to rush him to the  nearby hospital for treatment but met with heavy traffic on the Mile 2-Apapa Express Way, Lagos. He died on the way to the hospital.

Family members, friends and media colleagues thronged his Ogba, Ikeja residence yesterday to console his grief-stricken widow and children, who were yet to come to terms with the news of the sudden death of their father and breadwinner.

So so sad. May God give his family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.

PARALYMPICS: NIGERIAN WINS GOLD MEDAL, SETS WORLD RECORD

Nigeria's Yakubu Adesokan has won a gold medal in Power lifting and also sent the World record crashing on Thursday with his amazing 178 kg lift in his men’s 48 category which was over three times his body weight. This is the first gold for Nigeria at the Paralympics and this is a deserving compensation to Nigerians after our disappointing feat at the just concluded Olympics.

Well done.

LUGARD AIMIUWU: CBN SHOULD ENCOURAGE THE USE OF COINS

The President and Chairman of Council, National Institute of Marketing Nigeria, Chief Lugard Aimiuwu, advised Nigerians against taking positions on the issue of restructuring the country's currencies, but to explore other advantages the currency restructuring could bring about, especially the coin usage.

“Maybe they should be encouraged to support a culture of having coin boxes all over the place where people can pay for things in coins. For instance, the dual carriage rail system they say they are doing from Lagos to Ibadan; if they ask the passengers to pay with coins, that will support the culture of coin usage.

It is not professional to write off a policy without having facts and figures, but one thing that is very obvious to me is that if you have N5,000 in one note on the same size of paper for the other notes, the cost of producing it will be cheaper", he said.

The estimated cost of minting the proposed new currencies is alleged to be N40bn.

Do you agree with him?

JOKE OF THE DAY

A Really Bad Day

 There was this guy at a bar, just looking at his drink. He stays like that for half of an hour.

Then, this big trouble-making truck driver steps next to him, takes the drink from the guy, and just drinks it all down. The poor man starts crying. The truck driver says, "Come on man, I was just joking. Here, I'll buy you another drink. I just can't stand to see a man cry."

"No, it's not that. This day is the worst of my life. First, I fall asleep, and I go late to my office. My boss, outrageous, fires me. When I leave the building, to my car, I found out it was stolen. The police said that they can do nothing. I get a cab to return home, and when I leave it, I remember I left my wallet and credit cards there. The cab driver just drives away."

"I go home, and when I get there, I find my wife in bed with the gardener. I leave home, and come to this bar. And just when I was thinking about putting an end to my life, you show up and drink my poison."

KSB ATTACKS WANDE COAL, DON JAZZY OVER NUDITY IN VIDEOS



Top Nigerian Gospel Singer Kenny Saint Best, has lashed out at Mavin  Record Boss, Don Jazzy and his artiste, Wande Coal over the nudity contained in his new video, 'Go Low'. She told them to stop bringing nudity back into Nigerian mucic videos as this is leading to the  increase in rape cases in the country or be stopped by God.

KSB said, "Naked girl in Wande Coal's new video is a thumb down from me. We have kids watching. You are bringing nudity back to Nigerian [music] videos to increase cases of rape in our society. It has stopped. Please stop it.
"We don't want rape cases to increase. Please Wande Coal and Don Jazzy, stop this nudity in your music videos before God stops you. My dear brother (Wande Coal), the mercy and the favour of God were the elements that brought you this far, not nude girls in your music video. I say NO to NUDITY."

I think nudity in videos should be banned. We have kids watching this videos and that it's ok to get naked in front of a camera is not the kind of message we want to pass to them. Just saying.

DANA CRASH: RELATIVES OF VICTIMS TO RECEIVE N2.48B IN COMPENSATION


The insurance companies that insured the Dana Aircraft that crashed in Lagos on June 3, is expected to pay N2.48bn in compensation to relatives of the 153 passengers who died in the accident. Each passenger of the ill-fated plane was insured for $100,000, while each of the four cabin crew members and two pilots were insured for $150,000 and $250,000 respectively.
This means the family of each of the passengers will get $100,000 or about N15.7m, for the four crew members, their families will get N23.55m each, while the respective families of the pilot and the co-pilot will be given N39.25m each, totaling about N2.48b
The compensation will be paid upon verification of the rightful beneficiaries.

I really hope this gets done on time 'cos knowing Nigeria, they will drag  the process for so long until the beneficiaries give up.

CYNTHIA'S MURDER: HOTEL SACKS EMPLOYEES FOR NEGLIGENCE

Cosmilla Hotel, Amuwo Odofin, has sacked some of its employees following the murder of Cynthia Osokogu in the hotel. The hotel management was angry that no one suspected anything when the alleged murder was taking place despite the fact that Cynthia, who was in Room C1, fought her assailants and made a noise.

The hotel employees were also sacked for not verifying the true identity of her assailants, who used a fake name  to lodge at the hotel. Also, they failed to register Cynthia at the counter, as a result there was no record of Cynthia in the hotel which made it difficult for police to ascertain the identity of Cynthia. She was in the morgue for two weeks before her body was identified.

COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY STUDENT JUMPS TO HER DEATH

 Marta Corey-Ochoa commited suicide last night by throwing herself off a dorm building at Columbia University. On her Facebook page, she proudly declared herself a member of the Class of 2016(graduating class) at Columbia University, her father’s alma mater but she never made it to the lecture halls of the ivy league college.

Just two hours after a meet-and-greet for freshmen at her dorm on Monday night, she apparently jumped to her death from a 14th floor window.
Police do not think her plunge was an accident, and a source said Corey-Ochoa had a history of psychiatric problems.

An only child, oh my God!! Can't imagine what they must be going through.

Mr & MrsTeeves

Families of the Aurora shooting victims' families held a joint press conference in Denver on Tuesday to voice their anger and demand "a robust voice" in the handling of money given in their loved ones' names to Giving First and the Colorado Organization for Victims Assistance (COVA).

The foundation has been collecting money from both private and corporate donors for victims caught in the Aurora theater. So far, more than $5 million has rolled in.
But instead of going to the victims and their families or to victims who are struggling to pay bills due to incapacitation resulting from injuries sustained from the shooting, the money has been doled out to non-profits and government agencies, said Teves, father of 24 year old Alex Teeves who lost his life in the shooting.
The fund was set up with the endorsement of the Governor of Colorado, John Hickenlooper, who has not directly answered victims' complaints, Teeves said.

MICHELLE OBAMA'S FACE SUPERIMPOSED ON FAMOUS PAINTING OF A TOPLESS SLAVE BY SPANISH MAG


 

They photo shopped the first lady’s image onto ‘Portrait d’une nĂ©gresse,’ by French artist Marie-Guillemine Benoist, painted in 1800.The painting depicts a female French slave in a headdress and white gown, one breast exposed. This controversial move has left critics wondering if the image choice was more provocative than political.

 

 “Let’s be clear: This image has nothing to do with acknowledging Obama’s enslaved fore mothers, and everything to do with reinforcing and extending the historical denial of black women’s individuality and agency,” says the writer, Althea Legal-Miller. 

The White House said it had no immediate comment on the issue.

I think it's just in bad taste.


WHY DAVIDO COULDN'T PERFORM AT D'BANJ'S UK CONCERT

What do you think? Do you think its been retouched?

A three-month old baby (not the baby pictured above) has allegedly been stolen by an unknown woman during a church service at St. Theresa's Church, Anyiin, Logo Local Government Area of Benue State. The incident took place during the church service when an unknown woman, who stood at the entrance of the church approached the mother of the stolen baby, Mrs Mbatumun Oseh, and offered to help her hold the baby to avoid being pushed down by crowd at the church.

According to the source, Mrs Oseh obliged her and thereafter the strange woman also offered to sit at the back to avoid distracting members while the baby's mother sat in front. Mrs Oseh however, detailed one of her children to sit close to the woman while the service went on. However, the woman sent the child to a nearby shop to buy her sachet (pure) water, but before the girl came back, the woman had disappeared with the baby.

This is really sad. I hope they find the baby. But leaving your baby with a stranger?

The pop star, 27, turned down the $20million offer made by the the show's producers who were so eager to have her join the judging panel  for a year-long contract. The execs have continued their search to replace Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson (who will vacate his seat on the panel and instead serve as a mentor during the upcoming season). A number of other names have been bandied about as possible Idol additions, including Nicki Minaj, Pharrell Williams, Keith Urban and Nick Jonas, though none at this point have been confirmed.
In late July, Mariah Carey officially signed on to judge, accepting an $18 million payday making her the highest-paid judge on any music competition show.

OMG!!! 17 AFGHANS BEHEADED FOR DANCING.






17 civilians were beheaded on Monday in a Taliban-controlled area of southern Afghanistan  because they attended a dance party that flouted the extreme brand of Islam embraced by the militants. The victims were part of a large group that had gathered late Sunday in Helmand province's Musa Qala district for a celebration involving music and dancing. The Taliban slaughtered them to show their disapproval of the event.
The Taliban ruled the country from 1996 to 2001 and under them all music and film was banned as un-Islamic, and women were barred from leaving their homes without a male family member as an escort.
This is outrageous and inhumane. Losing your life for dancing? Really?
