Brunei Bans Christmas Celebrations, Imposes 5-Year Jail



Oil-rich Brunei has banned public celebrations of Christmas for fear of Muslims being led astray, its officials announced today.
In a country that last year controversially instituted tough Islamic sharia penalties - such as the severing of limbs - a ban relating to all Christmas references was issued following the holiday on December 25.
The tough restriction was put in place after children and adults were seen wearing clothes 'that resemble Santa Claus' - thereby promoting a religion other than Islam.

In April, Brunei was condemned after announcing the introduction of a penal code that will eventually include penalties such as the severing of limbs and death by stoning.
The tiny state on the island of Borneo is ruled by Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah and relies on oil and gas exports for its prosperity.

AKON DASH HIS MOM HIS ATLANTA HOUSE AS EARLY XMAS GIFT





Akon already feels the holiday spirit ... he just turned over the deed to his Atlanta home to his mom.
It's a 5 bedroom pad about an hour outside of the ATL. Akon bought the home a decade ago for $293k but his digs are now much grander ... a mansion in the Atlanta burbs.


The bond between Akon and his mom goes beyond blood. They both devote a lot of time to the Konfidence Foundation, which helps kids in West Africa. She's the president/CEO.

There might be another reason for the transfer ... Akon's got a bunch of outstanding tax liens ... so it'll be a lot harder for Uncle Sam to go after the crib.

I Would Have Ended Up Being A Post Master – Fashola Reveals Inspiring Story





Mr Babatunde Raji Fashola, Minister of Works, Power and Housing, may have ended up being a post master, but for his passion for litigation as a young lawyer.

After graduating from University of Benin (UNIBEN) and he was unemployed, his father presented him with the opportunity to work with the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST). This was at a time working with NIPOST was a dream job. While he realized it was a fantastic opportunity, he was extremely passionate about litigation and thus turned down the offer, and opted to pursue a career as a lawyer.

“I had a different passion and that was being in the courtroom; I therefore had to go for my dream to find a job that would help my career.   It took me a while before I could get a job and that meant I was jobless for several months after NYSC”, he said at a group mentoring programme for entrepreneurs organised by Young Business Leaders of Nigeria (YBLN) in Lagos.

He, however, noted the failing education system in country and thus lauded the YBLN’s initiative in training young entrepreneurs for positive change in the country.
