30 Killed After Islamic Gunmen Attack Boarding School, Many Children Burned Alive

“POTISKUM, Nigeria (AP) — Islamic militants attacked a boarding school in northeast Nigeria before dawn Saturday, killing 29 students and one teacher. Some of the pupils were burned alive in the latest school attack blamed on a radical terror group, survivors said.
Parents screamed in anguish as they tried to identify the charred and gunshot victims.
Farmer Malam Abdullahi found the bodies of two of his sons, a 10-year-old shot in the back as he apparently tried to run away, and a 12-year-old shot in the chest.
‘That’s it, I’m taking my other boys out of school,’ he told The Associated Press as he wept over the two corpses. He said he had three younger children in a nearby school.
‘It’s not safe,’ he said. ‘The gunmen are attacking schools and there is no protection for students despite all the soldiers.’

Stop taking us for twits: How shameless stars are plugging brands on Twitter - without admitting they're being paid thousands to do it

Via - Daily Mail

Oh, how celebrities love Twitter. They can pour out whatever drivel they please without interruption. But best of all, for them at least, they can get paid for their ‘thoughts’ on the social networking site.
A sting on soap stars in Manchester, which was revealed this week, has shown just how commercial celebrity tweets have become.
Actors from Coronation Street were invited to a ‘gifting event’ at a Manchester Hotel and then wrote glowing tweets about freebie goodies they’d been given by a fake company called Puttanta Aziendale (amusingly, in Italian that means ‘corporate whore’). 

What is Wrong With This Picture?

Tope Alabi's Husband Clears The Air On His Wife's Alleged Sex Scandal


Following the claim by a Lagos clergy, Prophet Ajanaku, that Yoruba gospel artiste Tope Alabi asked him to have sex with her; Tope Alabi had initially debunked the story HERE her husband, Soji Alabi, however has this to say:
“This trouble started when we stopped attending Prophet Ajanaku’s church because he was beginning to see himself as a god in our lives. All he has said to the media are bunch of lies, just to look for a way to bring us down. I know there is a God in heaven who will judge everything we do on earth and reward all of us accordingly. I intentionally told my wife not to say anything and leave God to judge everything but I am using this medium to tell everyone out there that Tope Alabi never asked Prophet Ajanaku to sleep with her.”
For now the couple has embarked on a church to church ministration while waiting to choose the next church they will be attending.

Man With 100 Pound Scrotum Gets Surgery – Ends Up with 1 Inch Penis

Wesley Warren Jr relaxes with his 100 pound ball sack at a bus stop
A man with 140 lbs. testicles is unhappy after their removal - as the operation left him with a tiny penis.
Wesley Warren Jr had a 13-hour procedure to remove his swollen sac after it grew so huge he had to wear a hoodie top as trousers to support the load.
The 49-year-old couldn’t have sex and suffered from crippling pain from carrying around the testicles - which weighed more than a baby hippo.
But now the American fears he will never be able to have a relationship with a woman after the surgery left his manhood measuring just an inch long.

A monkey expert's wife has revealed the secret to her husband's success as one of China's top trainers - she breastfeeds his simian students.
Jiao Xinzhen revealed the bizarre method during interviews to promote husband Huang Aiqing's monkey school in Nanyang, Henan province.

Human Breast Milk Becomes New Luxury Item For China's Super-Rich With Firms Even Offering Wet Nurse Services

Via - Daily Mail 

China's super-rich are paying thousands of dollars a month for human breast milk, with some even choosing to be wet nursed.

The bizarre new trend has seen a rise in adults buying breast milk and drinking it either straight from the wet nurse or after it was expressed.
Newspaper reports on the service have provoked outrage in China with tens of thousands of people posting on Sina Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter. 
According to the Southern Metropolis Daily, domestic staff agencies are offering wet nurses for newborns, sick people or anyone who will pay up to 16,000 yuan (£2,600) a month.
Customers say they want the concentrated nutrition breast milk provides.
It has a unique combination of antibodies, living cells, enzymes, hormones and fatty acids that has led some people to treat it as the latest superfood. 
'Adult (clients) can drink it directly through breastfeeding, or they can always drink it from a breast pump if they feel embarrassed', Lin Jun, owner of company Xinxinyu that offers the service, was quoted as saying by AFP.
Critics say the practice turns a mother's milk into a commodity and cheapens the bond between mother and child.

The Mandelas at war: Grave-robbing grandson claims his brother had affair with his wife as coffins of Nelson's children are returned to original burial site

A bitter feud between Nelson Mandela's family descended into soap opera farce today when his grandson and heir Mandla accused relatives of adultery and milking the fame of the revered anti-apartheid leader.
His comments came as the remains of the 94-year-old's three deceased children were reburied at their original resting site following a court order to return them after Mandla moved the bodies. 
In a news conference broadcast live on TV that stunned South Africans, Mandla confirmed rumours that his young son, Zanethemba, was in fact the child of an illicit liaison between his brother Mbuso and Mandla's now ex-wife Anais Grimaud.

Claims: Explosive allegations were made today by Nelson Mandela's grandson Mandla Mandela who called a press conference to reveal what he claims are the reasons behind the family's squabbling
Removal: The coffin of one of Nelson Mandela's children is brought to a burial site at former South African President's compound in Qunu
Return: Following a court case which granted Mandela's family the right to relocate the remains to Qunu, the remains were returned
Via - Daily Mail

With Mandela on life-support in a Pretoria hospital, the escalating feud has transfixed and appalled South Africa in equal measure. 
'Mbuso impregnated my wife,' Mandla said in Mvezo, the Eastern Cape village 700 km (450 miles) south of Johannesburg where Mandela was born and where Mandla serves as the formal chief of the clan.
Mandla, 39, first raised questions about his son's paternity last year when he split from French-speaking Grimaud, who has since moved back home to the Indian Ocean island of Reunion. He also revealed then that he was unable to have children.
His attempts to get the family to address the questions of Zanethemba's paternity had been rebuffed in the interests of preserving a semblance of unity in South Africa's most famous family, Mandla said. 

UK Visa Bond: Nigerians Are The Ultimate Losers

Via - Punch 
The British Prime Minister, David Cameron, recently hinted that his government might consider cutting aid to Nigeria over her anti-gay legislative stance. The news had barely hit the media before Nigerians shrilly reacted to the “blackmail.” Most commentators admittedly did not know what aid the UK was talking about and were too incensed to ask; they just felt the UK could “go to hell”. For their information, the UK aid consists of £102m spent on education in 10 of Nigeria’s 36 states in the past seven years and a projected spending of £126m by 2019. Nigeria is also one of the beneficiaries of an initiative that tackles malaria in Africa with more than an estimated £252m in 2011/12 and a projected £494m in 2014-15. These figures are in the public domain and I have not heard our leaders dispute their veracity.
The same UK has proposed a visa bond of £3000 from certain nations and once again, what? Drama. Unlike foreign aid, this potentially affects almost everyone directly and understandably, the outrage is amplified. Some commentators, like Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, have called for retaliation, stating that the UK citizens coming to Nigeria should be made to pay more. She compared the visa bond to last year’s deportation row with South Africa in which the latter eventually apologised for mistreating Nigerians.

Customs Accused Of Killing 30-year-Old Car Dealer

Via - Punch 

The Lagos State Police Command has commenced investigations into the murder of a 30-year-old car dealer, Uririnke Onojorhoevwo, who was allegedly killed by officials of the Nigerian Customs Service in Iyana Ipaja area of the state.
According to the police, the Delta State indigene was shot to death on June 16, 2013, after being pursued by customs men attached to the Federal Operation Unit.
Some policemen attached to Gowon Police Division, who witnessed the incident, said after the killing, the customs men fled.
A policeman, who craved anonymity, said, “On June 16, around 5am, we saw customs men in a Toyota Hilux van with registration number, CS307A01, chasing a white unregistered Audi Station wagon. The customs men shot the tyre of the vehicle and also shot its driver.
“The driver, who was bleeding profusely, came out of the vehicle and attempted to run. One of the customs men alighted from the Hilux, moved close to the car dealer, and shot him again. They did not touch the corpse but entered into their vehicle and fled immediately.”

Is Remi Tinubu Next Lagos Governor?

It first began like a rumour. Now, it is spreading fast and furious like a wild bush fire in the harmattan. Before we knew it, the speculation had also gone viral on the Internet, creating an instant buzz and talking point online. It is not totally surprising though. As the race for 2015 gathers momentum, speculations about who will occupy which position have become the subject of intense public debate. Usually and as it is with our brand of democracy, they first brew like the anecdotal ‘’beer parlour gossip’’ but they soon begin to gain a life of their own over time.

But as it has often been said, there can never be smoke without fire.

Also in this clime, politicians are usually evasive in declaring their intention for public office. Even when they so desire to run, they will still “insist on consulting with their consistency’’. And when their posters begin to appear like a thief in the night in the public space, they will lay the blame at the doorsteps of their detractors or play the ostrich altogether. It is all part of the game we have become familiar with. Expectedly, the debate about who will succeed Governor Babatunde Fashola in Lagos has begun to tread the same well-worn path. In recent times, speculations about Senator Remi Tinubu’s candidacy have begun to seep into public consciousness.

Last Friday, Sunday Sun caught up with Mercy Johnson at the Boys Correctional Center, Oregun, Lagos, where she went to speak to the boys and donate some gifts. She spoke briefly about motherhood and living beyond the moment. Samuel Olatunji recorded this excerpts…

You were at OJB’s house to see him and donate money, now you are here to donate to the Boys Reform Home in Lagos. What’s the idea?

No idea, we are just promoting the ideals of Mercy Johnson Foundation. The idea is to identify the needs, evaluate and help in our own little way. All fingers are not equal; those in position to help should do so without hesitation. You will be hearing a lot about Mercy Johnson Foundation from now on. We have put our house in order and now ready to help those we can. I strongly believe that as stars we should live beyond the euphoria of stardom and the moment. We will not always be here, what happens if you look back and realise you could do a lot to make the world better when you had the spotlight and you didn’t? I want to live beyond the moment.

Koko The 'Talking' Gorilla Specifically Asked For A Pet Cat For Her Birthday

Koko the 'talking' gorilla specifically asked for a pet cat for her birthday

Koko the gorilla is best known for being a sign-language speaking ape, believed by her handlers to know more than 1,000 signs. Her most humanizing characteristic has been the love and affection she has demonstrated toward her pet cats. Koko was first allowed a pet cat in 1985 after she specially requested one for her birthday.

She was even allowed to choose a kitten from a litter; a gray male Manx that she named "All Ball." Koko's gentle care and affection for All Ball was astounding to those on the outside who had never seen another animal treat another species as a pet before, but to Koko's handlers, who knew her well, it wasn't surprising at all.

Codex Gigas a.k.a. 'The Devil's Bible' - the largest extant medieval manuscript in the world, weighing nearly 75 kilograms.

The Codex Gigas was once considered the eighth wonder of the world; the book is three feet long and weighs a hundred and sixty-five pounds. It has 600 pages which, contrary to legend, are made from calf skins, not donkey skins.

The Codex Gigas includes a combination of texts found nowhere else. In addition to the full text of the Latin bible, the book contains herbals, history books, cures for dangerous illnesses, texts caring for the soul, medical formulas for treating illnesses and diseases, conjurations, and even solutions to problems such as finding a thief.

The book got the nickname of The Devil’s Bible because it is the only bible to include such a large portrait of the devil. Half-clothed in royal ermine; half man, half beast; with claws, cloven hooves, and a huge serpentine red tongue, the drawing shows Satan walled up in a cell alone rather than loosed in Hell. Immediately across from the devil is a portrait of the Kingdom of Heaven, creating an interesting contrast. More pictures after the cut.....
