"I will run again in 2011" Pastor Chris Okotie

























"It was a divine call to duty to salvage our beloved country from the in-ept, corrupt and purposeless leadership of the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP). Without any doubt, I remain fully persuaded that only the emergence of a credible, visionary and progressive government can usher in a new Nigeria of our dream. And I am confident that I represent this ideal and with my fresh agenda, we can create a new nation which will take its rightful place in the comity of nations.” - Rev. CHRIS OKOTIE, Pastor of Household of God, said this morning as he officially declared his intention to vie for the presidency of Nigeria under the platform of the Fresh Democratic Party (FDP).

You don't have to drink eight glasses of water everyday...??















A recent study determined that 'drink EIGHT glasses of water a day' is more urban myth than science-backed.


“No one knows where it originated, but it isn’t true. The average person does not need to consume this or any set amount of water. In fact most of suck down more than enough liquid via coffee, sodas as well as food sources like fruit and grains. “Eight glasses of water on top of this is overkill. The best water advice is to grab a drink whenever you feel thirsty. Thirst is a sign that your body needs fluid, not that you are already dehydrated.” explains Steven G. Aldana, PHD, professor of health and human performance at Brigham University in Utah

Munachi Abii signs with RMG company

Munachi Abii, former beauty queen (MBGN 2007), signs to The RMG Company as a solo rap artiste. Over the last couple of years 'Muna' has expressed her intention to throw her tiara into the rap game, with appearances and features on songs by other artistes' like Banky W, Ikechukwu (Killz), Jesse Jagz and Waje. Now she has started recording her yet untitled debut album due out early next year and has just recorded a song called Pop Sugar with another RMG artiste Michael Word (the song is produced by Sarz).

Her rap style is so eclectic and 'free range' that many who only see her as a pretty face will be pleasantly surprised (or shocked). Muna (AKA "Baby Rella") will record her album with producers in Nigeria, the UK/Europe, and in the United States where she hopes to pursue her other entertainment interest as well.

You go girl!!!

"My World Cup experience" Femi Kuti


















"They called me to come and play, I said I was not going because I didn't know what I would be doing at a football event. I wanted to sit at home and watch football and the opening ceremony. I didn't want to participate but they kept insisting. And I said, what song would I be playing? They said bang bang bang. I said that's over 12yrs, but fortunately the song is still very popular in Africa and the world. I did not know I was still popular in South Africa until I got to the stadium.  Words alone cannot describe how I felt; all the emotions. We had about 90, 000 people in the stadium, we had at least a billion people watching all over the world, that's the biggest crowd and audience anybody can play for. To just be on stage for two minutes and it was successful, which connotes the positive side of not just Nigeria, but Africa." Femi Kuti speaks with Encomium mag on his World Cup experience.

Nigeria's lawmakers are the highest paid in Nigeria


















Did you know that the National Assembly members are probably the highest paid lawmakers in the world?

Here's proof.
1. Senate President - David Mark, gets an unbudgeted N250million every four months. This is in addition to his N45, 581 million annual salary.
2. Deputy Sen. Pres. - Ike Ekweremadu, pockets N15million every four months. This is in addition to his N41, 795million annual salary.
3. Other principal officers of the senate like - Majority/minority leaders and their deputies, Chief whip etc collect the sum of N78million every four months.
4. The remaining senators get N45million aside N35, 158 annual salaries.

These facts came to light recently when some Senators who feel short changed by the leadership of the Senate cried out that their quarterly unbudgeted  allowance of N45million should be increased to N95million.
***

SMH! These thieves people forget that after all said and done, when we leave this earth, we leave with nothing, absolutely NOTHING! Whatever you can't take with you when you die is not worth dying for. We should think more of the legacy we leave behind. I guess this is what they want us to remember them for.
Sad!
God is such a merciful God.

Condom with 'Teeth' Designed to Catch Rapists

A female condom with jagged “teeth” that grips a man’s penis is the latest device developed to catch rapists in South Africa, CNN reported Sunday.

South African Dr. Sonnet Ehlers is distributing the condom — called Rape-aXe — for free during the World Cup, in a country with one of the worst rape rates in the world.

The condom is inserted by women like a tampon and its jagged teeth-like hooks inside attach to a man’s penis during intercourse. Once it grabs hold, only a doctor can remove it. Ehlers hoped this will help authorities to catch offenders.
***

A condom that grips the penis? I'm laughing so hard I have tears in my eyes...lmao. This doctor has yawered o! But I love, love, love, love the idea...my only problem with this is, if a rapist is stuck inside of a woman and can't remove himself, he will probably beat the shit out of the woman before the police arrive. BTW, who will call the police? They're both stuck for goodness sake...Lmao..
Still love the idea sha
