APPLE SELLS 10M NEW IPHONES IN FIRST THREE DAYS ON SALE





Apple Staff getting their new Apple Phones

According to Guardian, Apple says it sold more than 10m of its new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models in the three days after they went on sale on Friday, setting a new record despite the phones not being available in China.

The figure, which includes sales to operators as well to consumers – some of whom queued for days outside the company’s stores around the world – exceeds last year’s, when 9m of the iPhone 5S and 5C were sold, and 2012, when sales were 5m.

However in 2012 and 2013 the first weekend sales were boosted by sales in China, which has the largest number of iPhone users in the world, according to analysts. The government there has not yet approved the new models for sale.

Apple’s chief executive, Tim Cook, said: “Sales for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus exceeded our expectations for the launch weekend, and we couldn't be happier,” and added that “sell-through” – where phones are bought by end customers, rather than by mobile networks – had shattered previous figures “by a large margin”. Apple would be able to measure sell-through based on phone activations, which require the device to contact its servers during setup.

WOMAN GETS THIRD BOOBS IMPLANT TO SCARE MEN AWAY (PHOTO)






21 year old American Jasmine Tridevil, claimed she had plastic surgery to create a third breast to scare men away. And now she wants her own MTV reality show.

The woman who is based in Tampa Florida, shares pictures on her Facebook page to 'show the struggles she faces because of her surgery.' She said her main reason for getting a third breast was because she didn't want to appear attractive to men.
"I got the surgery because I wanted to turn off guys. I know it sounds crazy but I don’t want to date again ever. I still like to feel pretty. If I got a third breast implant most guys would think that’s weird and gross. But I can still feel pretty. I’m starting a reality show called Jasmine’s Jugs and my ultimate goal is to get it onto MTV. That’s my dream.”she wrote on FB

SCOTLAND VOTES NO TO INDEPENDENCE AND ALEX SALMOND RESIGNS HOURS LATER





Alex Salmond has announced he will resign just hours after admitting defeat in his battle for Scottish independence, as almost 2million people voted to remain in the United Kingdom. On the worst day of his political life, the First Minister (pictured bottom left speaking in Edinburgh this morning) tried to put a brave face on the electorate's crushing verdict, claiming that it showed only that a majority had decided 'at this stage' not to become an independent country. But with all but one council area declared, No had secured 55 per cent of the vote, a 10-point lead which will trigger speculation about whether Mr Salmond can survive as leader of the Scottish Nationalists.

Boko Haram Blamed As 13 Die In Nigeria College Shooting, Blast




Boko Haram Blamed As 13 Die In Nigeria College Shooting, Blast

Kano (Nigeria) (AFP) - Boko Haram insurgents have been blamed after at least 13 people died during a shoot-out between police and suspected suicide bombers at a teacher training college in northern Nigeria.

Kano State police commissioner Adelere Shinaba said the "insurgents", ran into the Federal College of Education after exchanging fire with police outside the grounds.

Most of the victims were in a lecture hall inside the Kano college, where the two gunmen opened fire on students.

One student who was having lunch nearby and asked not to be identified, said he saw the gunmen, dressed in black, and heard them shouting for all female students to lie face down.

"They were saying (in pidgin English), 'No be you say Boko Haram no they exist' (Is it not you who say Boko Haram doesn't exist?)," he added.

As shooting started, police opened fire and the explosives vest of one of the gunmen detonated. The other was shot dead, according to Shinaba.

"They were obviously suicide bombers," said Shinaba. "One of our officers shot at one of the gunmen and the explosives on him went off, killing him on the spot," he told AFP.

"Another gunman was also killed. Thirteen people were killed by the gunmen and 34 others have been taken to hospital with injuries."

MUST READ! Through The Valley Of The Shadow Of Death…Dr. Ada Igonoh survived Ebola


This story was culled from Bellanaija with the need to educate and spread the news regarding the killing virus called Ebola. This is a story of triumph over this deadly virus and survival of the affected person with assistance of Lagos State government.
It is a long read but definitely worth reading as Dr. Ada details her experience. It’s a really gripping read which shows the story of strength, faith and dedication. We are grateful to Ada for sharing her story with us.

On the night of Sunday July 20, 2014, Patrick Sawyer was wheeled into the Emergency Room at First Consultants Medical Centre, Obalende, Lagos, with complaints of fever and body weakness. The male doctor on call admitted him as a case of malaria and took a full history. Knowing that Mr Sawyer had recently arrived from Liberia, the doctor asked if he had been in contact with an Ebola patient in the last couple of weeks, and Mr. Sawyer denied any such contact. He also denied attending any funeral ceremony recently. Blood samples were taken for full blood count, malaria parasites, liver function test and other baseline investigations. He was admitted into a private room and started on antimalarial drugs and analgesics. That night, the full blood count result came back as normal and not indicative of infection.

The following day however, his condition worsened. He barely ate any of his meals. His liver function test result showed his liver enzymes were markedly elevated. We then took samples for HIV and hepatitis screening.
At about 5.00pm, he requested to see a doctor. I was the doctor on call that night so I went in to see him. He was lying in bed with his intravenous (I.V.) fluid bag removed from its metal stand and placed beside him. He complained that he had stooled about five times that evening and that he wanted to use the bathroom again. I picked up the I.V. bag from his bed and hung it back on the stand. I told him I would inform a nurse to come and disconnect the I.V. so he could conveniently go to the bathroom. I walked out of his room and went straight to the nurses’ station where I told the nurse on duty to disconnect his I.V. I then informed my Consultant, Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh about the patient’s condition and she asked that he be placed on some medications.

Prince Harry At 30


There are three Prince Harrys. There is the army one: Captain Wales of the Blues and Royals, the Apache helicopter pilot with two tours of Afghanistan under his belt. There is the royal: a balcony-waving ambassador and walkabout veteran, currently fourth in line and "spare to the heir". Then there's the social Harry: pretty rich, very posh and immensely privileged.

At times the personas have got mixed up with calamitous results. "Too much army and not enough prince," he wryly acknowledged after camera phone pictures of him naked at a private booze-fuelled strip billiards party in Las Vegas, surfaced.

The Harry we have seen instead is the champion of wounded service personnel and energy behind the forthcoming Invictus Games for those physically and mentally scarred while serving Queen and country.

Largest Crocodile In Captivity





The largest crocodile in the world in captivity stretches 18 feet long, weighs 2,200 pounds, is an estimated 111 years old, goes by the name of Cassius (as in Cassius Clay), and would probably eat its owner if given the chance.

George Craig, 84, is the owner who has been feeding Cassius for 27 years at his Australian sanctuary on Green Island in the Great Barrier Reef. But the former crocodile hunter, referred to as the real-life Crocodile Dundee, knows it would bite the hand that feeds it.


“George likes to feed Cassius personally and after [nearly] 30 years of being his caretaker, he does have a soft spot for Cassius,” Billy Craig, George’s grandson, told Caters News Agency. “Cassius is aware of who George is, but there are no illusions that he would eat him if he had the chance, without a doubt.

Tears Of Oscar Pistorius As He Is CLEARED of MURDER





In a sensational ruling, the Paralympian broke down in tears as the judge found him not guilty of murder and pre-meditated murder. Pistorius had been accused of deliberately shooting the 30-year-old model (inset) during a furious row at his Pretoria home on Valentine's Day last year. But he had always maintained - often through wails of despair during his six-week trial - that he shot the law graduate in self-defence after mistaking her for an intruder. Judge Thokozile Masipa has yet to decide on a lesser charge of culpable homicide - similar to manslaughter.

JUSTIN BIEBER UNDRESSED TO CHEERS & BOOS




Justin Bieber ripped off all his clothes, except for his Calvin Klein boxers, during Tuesday night's "Fashion Rocks" event in Brooklyn -- but flashing his bod and ego nearly backfired.

Biebs was on stage with model Lara Stone to introduce Rita Ora, when he decided to strip down. You can hear boos start to rain down at first, but the more naked he got ... the more the screaming chicks started to win out.

Justin tweeted after the show, "Grandma always said kill 'em with kindness...and then strip on live national tv. Lol."

Thanks for nothing, Granny.
