Indications have emerged that the ongoing monorail construction in Rivers State will be launched in October as proposed by the state government as the project appears to have entered its final stage of rail installment on the track.
The monorail project had become a subject of political controversy in the state as many of the opposition to Governor Rotimi Amaechi had dismissed it as a wasted effort and resources because it was not going to fly, especially given  the slow pace of work on site.
But Amaechi had continued to dismiss any such misgiving, saying even if that was the last thing he would do before leaving office on May 29, next year, he would make sure it is realised.

Hoops on a Chelsea kit?! The horror! Blues fans can relax though as they won't be walking out next season looking like some sort of copycats to west London neighbours, QPR
Instead Jose Mourinho's team will have two shades of blue dashed across their home strip. It was a feature seen on the Chelsea kit which won the Champions League in 2012, so it's a good omen at the very least.
And as a standalone shirt, it's still not a bad design. Place it with the plain blue shorts though and it looks rather mismatched.

Beyonce-father-Mathew-KnowlesMathew Knowles Hit With Another Paternity Suit

New Finger Device Reads Books To The Blind

Researchers from the MIT Media Lab have developed a device shaped like a giant ring that can read to people who are visually impaired. They call this 3-D printed prototype, FingerReader.
After slipping the device on, the user just runs an index finger below the printed text in a magazine, on a business card, or on a menu, for example. A small camera scans the words and the device reads them out loud in real time. Audio cues and a small vibrating motor alerts the user if he or she needs to move to the next line or has veered from the line of text.
Details about FingerReader can be found in this paper [pdf], and here’s a video of how it works:

Confab: Drama As Odili Denies Owning Abuja’s ‘Biggest Private Hospital’

There was mild drama on Tuesday at the National Judicial Institute, NJI, Abuja, venue of the ongoing National Conference, when a delegate, Sidi Ali, said the biggest private hospital being built in Abuja is owned by a former Governor of Rivers State.
Delegates continued their deliberations on the report of the Committee on Devolution of Power and what took the attention of most delegates in their contribution was the issue of increasing the derivation allocation from the present 13 per cent.
In his contribution earlier in the day, a delegate representing the Civil Society, Nasiru Kura, stated that he was not against an increase in the derivation principle, but that whatever additional money the oil producing states get would eventually go into serving the leaders of the area to the detriment of the people in the communities ravaged by oil exploration.
