Oldest Conjoined Twins In The World Celebrated Their 63rd Birthday




Having been through a lot and going against what scientists predicted, the oldest conjoin twins celebrated their 63rd Birthday in Ohio, USA.
Ronnie and Donnie are joined at the waist and face each other. They have four arms and four legs and separate hearts and stomachs but share a lower digestive tract, a groin, a rectum and penis, over which Donnie has control.

The twins were born healthy in October 1951 but stayed in the hospital for two years as doctors tried to figure out how to separate them. When experts said they could not guarantee both babies would survive an operation to part them, the parents said they would stay as they were. The boys did not go to school as teachers asked them to leave because they were too distracting to the other students. From the age of four to 39, they supported their family by performing in carnival sideshows in the U.S. and circuses throughout Central and South America.

The twins live with their younger brother Jim

IDRIS ELBA- THE BLACK JAMES BOND, THE CONSPIRACY AND CRITICS


One of the revelations that came out from the hacking of Sony was the contemplation by senior brass in the company of ditching Daniel Craig, the latest James Bond, in favor of Idris Elba, the British actor whose parents are from Benin republic in Africa.  Immediately this was made known, many ‘whites’ are already up in arms against the idea.  According to reports, the charge of the ‘whites’ are being led by drug abuser Rush Limbaugh, who according to the Huffingpost can’t stand the idea of a black man playing James Bond.

In the Huffpost article, Limbaugh is quoted as saying “James Bond is a total concept put together by Ian Fleming. He was white and Scottish. Period. That is who James Bond is, was.” “But now [they are] suggesting that the next James Bond should be Idris Elba, a black Briton, rather than a white from Scotland.”

Chris Brown & Karrueche Tran -Given Their Whole Relationship Another Shot



 


Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran were reportedly on the outs recently, but the two have seemed to resolve their differences to stay together!
 
But when this occurred was NOT immediately clear until a new report suggested the time and place when the reconciliation happened.


This apparently happened on December 23rd at the Playhouse nightclub in Los Angeles, California

The two apparently met and were conversing politely in the club until one source claims Chris Brown asked Karrueche if they could talk in a place more private which she agreed to!
 
And we guess whatever Chris Brown said worked because the two are giving the whole relationship thing another try!

 And so far it seems to be going pretty well!
 

Chris Brown undoubtedly CAN be one charming and convincing guy when he wants to — but hopefully he can stay consistent with that side of his personality. If he can - then maybe this relationship between these two beautiful people can last for a long time!

You’re A Compulsive Liar- Soyinka To Obasanjo


Nobel laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, yesterday, gave a rebuttal to former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s latest book, “My Watch,” describing it as a narrative by a compulsive liar who is always determined to crookedly project himself above his true standing among men.
Affirming his general detestation of such men, Soyinka said the Obasanjo brand was compounded by the inclination of even foisting lies on members of the younger generation.
Obasanjo had in his book described Soyinka as a self-serving critic who always sought to shine out among men, claiming that the Nobel Laureate was a “misfit as a political analyst, commentator or critic.”

“For Wole, no one can be good, nor can anything be spot-on politically except that which emanates from him, or is ordained by him,” wrote Obasanjo.
“He is surely a better wine connoisseur and a more successful “aparo” (guinea fowl) hunter than a political critic, not to talk of what he would do as a politician. I take him seriously on almost all issues except on the political, particularly Nigerian politics.”

LIFE AS A WIDOWER......SO TOUCHING


This is a very touching write-up from a man grieved by the death of the love of his life and how he is trying to start afresh a life without her but only his son. The story of a young widowed father opening up about living with loss.
The eighty-five-year-old driver who killed my wife, Desreen, was jailed today for eighteen months for causing her death by dangerous driving. He was also banned from driving for life. I suspect he, his family and friends are feeling really quite dreadful right now, and, for what it’s worth, mine and I aren't exactly celebrating either.

You see, I’ve had time to think since attending the trial and I’ve realised that you can punish a crime but you can’t transfer pain. Any suffering caused to the defendant as a result of his sentencing could in no way take away mine. I’ve since learned that, having suffered so much myself, I genuinely wish no hurt on any other person and I never wished a prison sentence on the driver, either.

ANGRY WIFE WANTS N40M FROM HUBBY FOR INFECTING HER WITH HIV





No longer able to condone her husband's alleged acts of infidelity, which has also made her a carrier of the dreaded Human Immune Virus (HIV), a house wife in Kano has demanded a whooping sum of N40million for settlement from her husband.

The embittered woman dragged her husband, Mansur Musa, to a Sharia court sitting at Sabon Gari in Kano State for allegedly infecting her with HIV.

The case has been on since the early months of 2014, but it seems the husband and his counsel want the case settled out of court.

The lady, who sued her estranged man for N40million, was later begged to settle out of court with N2million, a fee she out rightly rejected.


The suit has been adjourned till 2015.

OKADAMAN BEATS PREGNANT WOMAN TO COMA IN LAGOS



Some people are heartless! A commercial motorcycle operator has beaten a seven- month pregnant woman to coma along the Lagos-Badagry expressway, near Oluti bus stop in Lagos.

Trouble started after the woman was said to have paid the unknown rider a stipulated amount of money to convey her from Iyana Iba to First Gate bus stop, Maza Maza.

According to an eyewitness, who identified herself simply as Mama Bola, the pregnant woman, Feyisara, when she regained consciousness in a private hospital, said the agreement was for the rider to move her to First Gate only for him to stop near Oluti, screaming at her to get off from the motorcycle.

The source said Feyisara disclosed that an argument ensued and the rider wanted to move the bike but she held his clothes tight, preventing him from escaping.

US Airstrikes Killed Top ISIS Leaders





U.S.-led coalition airstrikes have killed “multiple” prominent Islamic State group leaders in Iraq, the Department of Defense said Thursday. The leaders were killed in the last month.

“We believe that the loss of these key leaders degrades ISIL's ability to command and control current operations against Iraqi Security Forces (ISF), including Kurdish and other local forces in Iraq,” a Pentagon spokesman, Rear Adm. John Kirby, said in a statement.  “Leadership, command and control nodes, facilities, and equipment are always part of our targeting calculus.”

After 22 years of marriage, Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner’s divorce has been finalized. And though Kris insisted she and Bruce will be friends forever, It has learned that the feeling is not mutual: According to an insider, Bruce “wants nothing to do with Kris!”
“Bruce is just relieved and glad it’s finally over,” a source close to the Keeping Up with the Kardashians family says.

Kris, 59, has already moved on with much younger man Corey Gamble, 33, but her ex is hardly jealous.

“Bruce is also glad that the divorce worked out so that he gets to keep what’s his,” the source continues. As Radar reported, Kris will have to pay Bruce $2.5 million to equalize their financial statuses as part of the divorce agreement.

Indian Child Kept As A Slave Because His Parents Couldn't Pay A Debt




This might sound touching and cruel at the same time regarding the situations surrounding the story. It is story of poverty and Sherlock (the heartless debit collector).
A nine-year-old boy was starved, beaten and tied up while being kept as a slave at a coal yard, after his parents failed to repay a loan.

Photographs that appeared in the local media show the unnamed child bound to a metal pillar with his arms tied above his head at the yard just outside of New Delhi.
Local police declined to comment on the pictures but said they were currently looking for a man suspected of kicking a boy he was keeping as a child slave after his parents were unable to pay a debt.

The practice of taking so-called bonded children as a guarantee against the parents paying off a debt is increasingly common, despite the fact is illegal in India.

It is little more than slave labor with the child often working unregulated hours in factories or farms.

Neighbors freed the little boy after they heard him screaming while enduring an hour-long beating with a stick, and they chased the man off and called the police.

The child said he was starving because his employer had not given him food for more than four days and had beaten him with a cane after tying him to a pole.
He said: 'I was beaten because I had asked for Rs 50 (90 cents) from the owner to buy some food.'
Police are currently looking for the coal depot owner, named as 57-year-old Net Ram.

Selena Gomez Cried Over Justin Bieber @ Taylor Swift's Party





The wailing you heard emanating from Taylor Swift's Tribeca apartment last Friday was not a cat trying to escape Taylor's rigid grasp, but Selena Gomez, who was crying because no one understands her. Not even her boyfriend understands her.

Us Weekly reports that at Taylor's 25th birthday party, Selena was seen "getting emotional" over her on-again, off-again BF Justin Bieber.

She shouted, "No one understands me! My boyfriend doesn't even understand me," an insider tells Us, adding that bystanders...just stared at her.

OMG Selena, there were a lot of famous bystanders at this party. Did Beyoncé see you crying? Eeep!

I Didn't Steal Daniel Adenimokun; Stella Damasus Confirms Relationship





During her recent interview on Gold Icons with Emma Emerson, Stella Damasus boldly put into record her relationship with Daniel Adenimokun and various rumors surrounding it.
She stated:
"Let me put it this way. Let me help you hit the nail on the head. One of the comments I have seen consistently, over and over again, is ‘Stella snatches somebody’s husband’, ‘Stella the husband snatcher’, which is what has been going on. And I had sworn that I would never talk about it, or even listen or stress myself about this thing but I have decided to do this now, so that I end this once and for all.
First of all, let me paint a picture for you and you let me know what makes sense to you. When I looked up the word snatch or steal,let’s go to the dictionary. It means, forcefully taking something away from its original position. Forcefully. From its original position to another position. Something that does not belong to you. That’s what I gathered from the word snatch or steal.

A Woman Cut Off Son's Genitals (Photos)




This is story popped up on the web but I am yet to confirm the authenticity of the news as I found it so bizarre for a mother to do that on her son.
A 30 year old mother cut off her son's sex organ in Manengole, Nkongsamba, in Cameroon. The poor innocent 3 year old child named Njankep Alexandre is presently in a protestant hospital in Ndoungue under intensive care while the mother is in jail awaiting trial. She hasn't yet said why she did this to her own child.
Is this motherhood or evil with brutality?
Really it might be she is experiencing some level of insanity for her not to think twice before doing what she did on the harmless boy.

This is despicable! Unbelievable! See what the woman did to her son after the cut... *warning - it's graphic. Very graphic*

Only Few People Speak Good English In Nigeria - Rapper Reminisce




Indigenous rapper, Remilekun Safaru popularly known as Reminisce said he believes only few people speaks good English in Nigeria. According to Alaga Ibile, Indigenous rappers have been neglected, but few of them in the game have strived had to be heard. He also says so many people want to be razz these days, because razz is seen as the new cool.

“I don’t think anyone has given indigenous rappers any chance, we took it by ourselves”.


We just decided among ourselves that we need to make people know what we have to offer. Indigenous rappers own the crowd. Let’s be very honest with ourselves, how many people can speak good English in this country? It’s about the audience affiliating with the artistes who speak their language. It’s not about calling indigenous rappers razz and local. More people want to be razz now; they think razz is the new cool. Luckily for me, I am selling razz music and I am getting rich off it.

Instagram Overtakes Twitter



In just over four years Instagram has reached the 300 million user mark globally, making the social network bigger than Twitter.

Twitter has 284 million active users accessing the service, putting it just behind the Facebook owned photo and video sharing network. Facebook still trumps them both however, with a staggering 1.35 billion monthly active users as of September 2014.

Kim Kardashian The Most Searched Celebrity of 2014




Though the year still has some days to go, the folks at Microsoft’s Bing search engine are ready to call it in favor of uber-celeb Kim Kardashian. The socialite-turned-reality-TV-star-turned-entrepreneur-turned-cover-model dethroned songstress Beyoncé as Bing’s most searched person of 2014.

A word of caution here: The people who are the top 10 most searched names are pretty much the people you wish we weren’t obsessed with. So, scan the list at the risk of falling into a pit of despair.

Kardashian topped the list this year, Bing-sters note, thanks to her “buzzworthy Vogue cover, extravagant wedding to Kanye, and her photos that ‘broke the Internet.'” And, yes, I’m linking to none of them.

In the far more mundane world of actual news, Bing also revealed our top 10 interests.

The World Cup was first on the list. But most of the entrants indicated, on a more hopeful note, that when real news is happening, people are willing to pay attention and make some attempt to be informed: Ebola, Ferguson, ISIS, Malaysia Jet, Ukraine.

See full list of celebrities most sought online for 2014

1. Kim Kardashian
2. Beyonce Knowles
3. Miley Cyrus
4. Katy Perry
5. Justin Bieber
6. Joan Rivers
7. Jennifer Lopez
8. Kendall Jenner
9. Kaley Cuoco
10. Robin Williams

50 CENT PERSONAL ACCOUNT FROZEN




50 Cent can't get 50 cents out of his ATM, because his personal bank account is now off limits.

It seems 50 didn't pay a whopping $17.2 million judgment over a deal he made to market headphones for a company called Sleek Audio. Sleek claimed 50 stole its design and then tried marketing it on his own. The law sided with Sleek, and 50 got hit with the massive judgment.

Legal Lesson: If you don't pay a judgment, the winner can garnish your wages and freeze your bank accounts. 

A source connected to 50 tells TMZ the rapper has complete access to his business bank accounts ... the only account affected by the judgment is his personal.

And it's not like he's broke. Forbes estimates 50's worth at $140 million.
update_graphic_red_barAn attorney for 50 tells us they are appealing the Sleek Audio judgment, and the company has been "desperately attempting" to hold money from any accounts it can locate. He added ... don't worry about 50 because his assets are "appropriately protected."

Amazing Place To Visit: Lake Baikal -Russia





Lake Baikal is the oldest freshwater lake in the world at just 25 million years.

In March, frost and sun cause cracks in the ice crust, which results in the turquoise ice shards we see at the surface.
It is not just the world oldest lake but also the deepest and the clearest lake.

WHY FASHOLA IS NOT CONSIDERED AS APC VICE PRESIDENT CANDIDATE



The APC has ruled out the possibility of the Governor of Lagos state, Babatunde Fashola as a possible running mate to any of the Presidential aspirants in the party.

According to a chieftain of the party who spoke on condition of anonymity to Punch, Gov. Fashola's religion has disqualified him as a possible running mate since the party would be fielding a Muslim as its Presidential candidate. The chieftain said the party was not going to be fielding a Muslim-Muslim ticket hence the decision to drop Gov Fashola as a possible running mate.

Heartbroken Dog Waited In Vain For Its Dead Owner



Masha, a heartbroken dog, has been looking for her late master every day since he died in a Siberian hospital last year.

When he was living on a ward in the Novosibirsk District Hospital, Masha was his only visitor. Now that he’s gone, his loyal dog refuses to leave.

Staff at the hospital hope somebody will give her a new home.

“She’s waiting for him, she’s not going anywhere,” said nurse Anna Vorontsova.
