1380119196.jpeg (600×800)
The new flagship Walkman NW-ZX1 have just been announced by Sony Japan.

The Sony Walkman NW-ZX1 and NW-F880 have just been announced by Sony Japan. The NW-ZX1 is a premium Android MP3 player while the NW-F880 comes in three colours.
Both devices run on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, sport 4-inch 480 x 854 Triluminous screens and feature Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC.
The NW-F880 continues Sony's F series and offers 24 bit/192 kHz lossless audio for FLAC or WAV files. It also has sports hardware buttons for easy access to playback controls. There will be three models: the 16GB NW-F885, 32GB NW-F886 and the 64GB NW-F887.
The NW-ZX1 is a premium MP3 player that does away with some of the offerings on the NW-F880, such as FM radio and digital noise cancellation, so as to improve audio quality and cram in its 128GB storage. That bulge at the back of the device is a headphone amplifier called S-Master HX which reduces noise distortion. The ZX1 doesn't come with free headphones as Sony recommends using a good pair to enjoy the high-quality audio.
The NW-F880 will come in white, black, blue and pink, although the 64GB model only comes in black and white. The 16GB is priced at $274 (£155), the 32GB at $304, and the 64GB at $405. The NW-ZX1 comes in silver only and costs $760.
The new Android Walkman devices are set to launch in Japan on 19 October with no details of international availability.

Rant: Claire Moloney was filmed having a screaming argument with an Asian man on a Tube carriage after going out drinking with colleagues
A commuter who told an Asian man to ‘f*** off back to your own country’ in a rant on a Tube train has been found not guilty of racial harassment .
Accountant Claire Moloney was allowed to sit with her family while the verdict was announced.
A gasp of relief was heard when she was pronounced not guilty, and her husband put his arms around her and gave her a hug.
One family member was heard to say, 'About time.'
Mrs Moloney said during her trial that she was embarrassed to watch film footage in which she screamed at an unidentified man, and which was later uploaded to YouTube, and shown to the court at her trial.

Tomb raider: Man Spends $65,000 on Macabre World Tour of Celebrity Graves

Mark with the grave of Bruce Lee Acclaimed martial artist, actor and icon buried with his son Brandon at Lake View cemetery

Most people's holiday snaps involve colourful scenery, famous landmarks and smiling tourists.
But not if your morbid Mark Dabbs, his ideal holiday snap involves him standing alongside the tombstones of some of the world's most famous late greats.
In fact, the 38-year-old is so interested in the final resting places of the rich and famous, that he has spent more than £40,000 touring the world to visit as many of them as possible.

From the Seattle grave of the kung-fu legend Bruce Lee to Russian Marxist Leon Trotsky's shrine in Mexico City, Mr Dabbs has trekked across continents to search out cemeteries.
It all began at the age of 18, when he visited the final resting place of John F Kennedy in Virginia, USA.
Since then the staff nurse has dragged his siblings and even a string of girlfriends on his odysseys to seek out star-studded graveyards.
But while some may think his hobby bizarre and find his endless tomb snaps boring, the staff nurse can't think of any better way to spend his summer holidays.

Huangluo – The World’s First Long-Hair Village

Hair is very important to women, who generally use it to highlight their features, but for the women of the ethnic Yao people of Huangluo Village, China, hair is their most prized possession.
Located in the Longji Scenic Are of Gulin, China, Huangluo Village numbers around 82 households of Red Yao ethnics, who get their name from the traditional red clothing. Like many other Chinese villages, Hunagluo enjoys very attractive natural surroundings and has plenty of ancient traditions to keep tourists entertained, but the most fascinating thing about it is the women’s obsession with long hair. 

In fact, the Yao settlement has received a Guinness certification for the “world’s longest hair village” and is also known as the “Long Hair Village” across China. Considering the average hair length of the 120 women in Huangluo is 1,7 meters and the longest locks exceed 2.1 meters, I’d say its reputation is well-deserved.

INTERVIEW: Why we killed Ironsi and installed Gowon — Jeremiah Useni

Lt. General Jeremiah Useni needs no introduction. The prominent role he played during the reign of late Head of State, Sani Abacha, as Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, is well known. However, there are two things about Jeremiah Useni, who was referred to as ‘Jerry Boy’ at the time. He was indeed a Boy, because he joined the Army at the age of 14. Firstly, he was one of the soldiers who fired shots during the coup against General Ironsi in which the General was killed in Ibadan. Mr. Useni was also the closest person to General Abacha up to his last moments.
This interview, conducted in Hausa by the Hausa language newspaper, Rariya, and translated to English by PREMIUM TIMES’ Sani Tukur, reveals a lot of things many of us didn’t know, including the conspiracies that denied him the opportunity of succeeding Mr. Abacha after he died. Enjoy…
You joined the Army as a fourteen year old, and you were posted to England for a Course at sixteen, how did you feel at the time?
Honestly, it was like a dream to me because I broke my left leg during a game of football, just one year after I joined the Army. As a young footballer, I had very strong shooting ability with my left leg. Anyone who was unfortunate to be hit with my shots really suffered no matter their size. I spent about four months at the hospital In Kaduna. Most of the hospital staffs at the time were Europeans, and they were very efficient. They joked a lot with their patients and they related with you as if you had known them for ages. One day, they decided to come and test all of us and see those who had made progress, so that they would be discharged. When they came to me, they asked; ‘can you stand up?’ And I said, ‘yes’. Then I was asked to stand up and walk. The whiteman said, ‘this one is ok now, he can be discharged’.

Chastising Me For Smoking Weed Is Another Form Of Racism – Jesse Jagz Opens Up On Marijuana Use

At ‘The Jesse Jagz Experience’ free music concert which held last month at the New Afrika Shrine, Lagos,  the music maker took time to explain his weed smoking habit and how it doesn’t concern anybody.
This one’s for the blogs. You people keep reporting about me smoking marijuana, chastising me for smoking is just another form of racism’, Jesse Jagz blurted out in between performance.
He then went on a rant about how he did not ‘find it anyone’s business’ because he patronised the green leaf calling it ‘grass’ created by God himself.
It was once reported about Jesse Jagz use of Marijuana but record label Chocolate City denied it.
Well, we guess Jesse’s open statement has proved his former label wrong…

Over a year after winning the second season of Nigerian Idol, singer Mecry Chinwo is yet to be given her N7.5m recording contract.
As I speak to you, I’m one-man standing. I am not in any record label, I am alone. I have to say the truth. I am not or was never tied to nay record label‘, the Port Harcourt-born singer told Encomium Weekly last week. She however confirmed receiving the N7.5m cash prize.
Franchise owners of Nigerian Idol, Optima Media Group (OMG) had announced that the winner of the talent show would go home with the overall prize of a recording contract, an SUV and a mouth-watering cash of prize of $100,000 (N7.5m). The show was sponsored by Etisalat and Pepsi.
We could not establish contact with OMG as a rep for the media company refused to pick our phone calls and reply text messages.
Mercy’s case isn’t the same with season three winner Moses Obi-Adigwe who says everything OMG promised has been delivered. ‘Yes I got the money and my contract, everything is okay‘, Moses told us in a telephone chat. The singer says he has received his N7.5m cash prize and has released three new singles.
Apparently, Moses’ recording contract is with OMG who recently setup their own label. Moses says he is more relaxed working with OMG than any other label as they would ‘have time’ for him.

What has taken over the minds of these young ones is simply the internet and what they see on cable TV, and this has no doubt created such a picture as this.

Fashola Apologises To Igbos Over Deportation Saga

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN) on Thursday offered an unreserved apology for the misunderstanding generated by the alleged deportation of some destitutes to Onitsha, Anambra State.
The state government was accused of dumping 70 beggars at Onitsha Bridge on July 24, a situation that generated public outcry and bad blood.
The government had said it relocated the 14 people to Onitsha after rehabilitating them, but the explanations did not appease the aggrieved Igbos, who felt they were being badly treated and hated
Fashola, who spoke at the silver jubilee of the Igbo socio-cultural think tank, Aka Ikenga held at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs, Victoria Island, insisted he has no problems with the Igbos.

Warning: Death! I Don't Think They Will Be Walking Away From This.

Situational awareness. Be when and where you are. Remember you might be the only one who can save your or someone elses life. Crazy shit happens all the time. Because it's unavoidable. Seems depressing to think the ultimate end is negative.

Actress Jada Pinkett-Smith penned an open letter to a friend who has decided to get a divorce. In her letter, which she posted on her Facebook page, Jada said couples who hope to grow old together must give each other space and time apart to miss each other.

Effects of Krokodil: This Russian man is suffering the side-effects of Krokodil use - Banner's Poison Control Center in Arizona says the two first cases of people using a drug that can rot flesh have been reported

The first cases of a terrifying new drug called 'Krokodil' that eats flesh from the inside out, is flammable and leaves addicts with reptilian-like skin have been reported this week in Arizona - and the state fears the beginning of an epidemic.
Popular in Russia, Krokodil is homemade, is three-times cheaper than heroin and created by mixing codeine with gasoline or oil, filtering it and then injecting the rancid concoction into the users body.
Banner's Poison Control Center most likely encountered the drug when two addicts arrived in emergency rooms with their flesh hanging off their body, exposing bone or with skin resembling that of a crocodile, hence its name.

Mall collapse preview

Shocking new video today revealed the true extent of the destruction caused to the Nairobi shopping centre during the four-day battle between Kenyan forces and Islamic militants.
Aerial footage shows a gaping hole in the mall's roof after three storeys collapsed when Kenyan soldiers fired rocket-propelled grenades inside the complex, knocking out a support column, a government official said.

During the firefight, hostages reportedly had their throats slashed from ear to ear and were thrown screaming from third-floor balconies as the siege came to a bloody end.
Shell-shocked Kenyan troops said the inside of the Israeli-run mall resembled a ‘scene from a horror movie’ with blood spattered everywhere and dead bodies strewn across the floor.

My decision to visit his church was based on curiosity. That was in 2007. Sincerely, there is no way you won’t marvel at his preaching. He preached with persuasive and authoritative words.

Untold Story Of How Boko Haram Overrun Nigerian Soldiers, Massacre Hundreds In Borno

Dressed in full military fatigue and armed with anti-aircraft guns, rocket propelled grenades (RPGs) and a fleet of armoured tanks that they stole from Nigerian soldiers, the Boko Haram insurgents now stage bolder attacks and even overrun federal  troops in northeast Nigeria.
There are fears that the continued attacks on the military and the looting of arms by Boko Haram also threatens the fragile peace being enjoyed by residents of Maiduguri in the past three months. There are also concerns that Boko Haram’s continued attacks on  towns and villages located around a 100 km radius of Maiduguri, could possibly weaken the defence around the capital city.
In the past month, Boko Haram has carried out several gory attacks on both civilians and soldiers on the five major routes that lead in or out of Maiduguri, and these point of attacks are all less than 80km away from, Maiduguri.
Last Tuesday, Boko Haram gunmen, in their hundreds, staged their second attack in a week on the town of Benisheik, 75 km away from Maiduguri. They left at least 140 persons either injured or dead. About a hundred homes and businesses premises were burnt and scores of vehicles, including military tanks, looted.

2015: Jonathan Woos South-West Leaders

Barely 24 hours after President Goodluck Jonathan officially declared his intention to run for a second term in office, he has started reaching out to prominent groups in the South West to actualise his ambition come 2015.
One of such groups is Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC, whose leader, Otunba Gani Adams,  played host to Special Adviser to the President on the Niger Delta and Chairman, Presidential Amnesty Programme, Mr. Kingsley Kuku, yesterday.
Although the duo denied that their close door meeting which lasted for several hours in Lagos, had nothing to do with President Goodluck Jonathan’s 2015 ambition, the undertone of the courtesy visit showed otherwise as a reliable source close to the corridors of powers disclosed that the meeting was in line with Jonathan’s effort to woo the South-West ahead of 2015.

President Goodluck Jonathan Ineligible To Run In 2015 – New PDP

President Goodluck Jonathan
The leadership of the New Peoples Democratic Party has  said that  President Goodluck Jonathan is not qualified to seek re-election in 2015.
The reasons why he cannot contest, according to the group, are: The 1999 Constitution, an agreement the President  entered into and his open statement in Turkey in 2011.
The President had  on Monday said that the 1999  Constitution allowed  him to be in  office for a maximum of eight years.
He had said, “Already, we have a constitution that makes provision for maximum of eight years for anyone who wants to become a President or a governor.
“There is no President or governor that all citizens vote for but at the end of the election, if somebody emerges, you must allow the person to work.
“If you love your country, you would want your country to work. That does not mean that you will not vote against the person if you don’t like the way he works, but you must allow him to work.”
But the New PDP, in  a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Chukwuemeka Eze,  warned  that Jonathan’s second term ambition was not in the best interest of the country.
“After reviewing the state of the nation and the pulse of  Nigerians, we wish to advise President Jonathan to abandon his plan to seek re-election in 2015 as this   is not in the best interest of the country,” it added.
