Lagos schools where pupils sit on bare floors unearthed
The World Bank as the largest external financier of education in the developed world found a reason to partner with the Lagos State Government to develop education to the tune of $90m, an initiative called the Lagos Eko Project.
The body seems to recognise the fact that as the commercial nerve centre of Nigeria –the most populous black nation in the world – education in the state needs all the attention it can get.
But if the state of the furniture in public secondary schools in the state is anything to go by, this needed attention is lacking.

Lady Gaga's Greatest Thanksgiving Looks -- Delicious!

Miley Cyrus Just Crapped All Over Christmas

Saheed Balogun and Estranged Wife Fathia Balogun In Court Over Name Wahala.

Saheed and Fathia Balogun have called it quit long before now. But Saheed isn’t finding it funny that Fathia still bears his name-Balogun. Saheed last year threatened that Fathia should stop using his name, but that fell on the actress’ deaf ears. In an interview shortly after Saheed asked her to stop using his name, Fathia said, “I laugh, my name is Fathia Balogun and it’s going to remain Balogun; nobody can ever change that and nobody can stop me from answering that name.”

The case is now in court.

ABC's "Lady Gaga and the Muppets Holiday Spectacular" featured a few of the pop star's famous friends -- Elton John and Kristen Bell -- and several sketches that fell flat.

Lady Gaga Muppets - H 2013
"Touch me in the dark / Put your hands all over my body parts," Lady Gaga demanded in the family special that earned the post-Charlie Brown Christmas slot on ABC this year. But there's getting felt up, and then there's feeling up actual felt, which brings us to her co-stars, the Muppets. Alas, there was little suggestion of a love triangle between Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and Miss Gaga, interspecies love apparently being too taboo for the usually daring pop provocateur.

Children learn sexism at school – so that's where we should begin to fight it

Schoolgirls doing exams

High-profile cases in Rochdale and recent reports into gangs suggest that the sort of girls who are harrassed and abused are weak and friendless, girls whose chaotic homes lives leave them vulnerable. Yet, while law-abiding parents are reading these stories as if they are missives from Mars, harassment and sexism has become an everyday reality for their daughters.

Gov. Oshiomhole Apologizes For Harsh Public Dismissal Of Helpless Benin City Widow

Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State has apologized for his abominable dismissal of a helpless widow on a Benin street during a “project tour.”
A fast-circulating online video shows the governor, who was leading a large team of officials, telling the crying woman, who was on her knees begging him, to “go and die.”
The incident was videotaped and uploaded to the Internet and widely-circulated to social media activists, including Saharareporters.  By early today, the video had already garnered over 100,000 views and 360 comments on SaharaReporters fanpage alone. 
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the governor apologized to a delegation of Muslim women of the  Federation of Muslim Women's Associations in Nigeria (FOMWAN), which visited his office yesterday, and explained that he made his comment in anger and now regrets it.  It is unclear if the governor has apologized to the woman herself.
Several commentators on SaharaReporters were seething with anger in condemning the action of the governor.
Several other groups set up an online campaign to raise money for the poor woman to enable her set up a business in Benin City.  Even the opposing Peoples Democratic Party (Edo State chapter), cashed in on the campaign by donating N250,000 to the widow.

Video: Watch Gov Adams Oshiomole Tell A Widow: 'Go And Die!'

This is quite disheartening.
The woman may have broken the law, by selling her wares in a prohibited area but the statement from Gov Oshiomole, that's not good at all.

'You are a widow! Go and DIE!!', despite her tears, cries, begging for mercy, begging for help. Wow!!
This is really heartbreaking!!

Incase you are wondering what happened, Gov. Oshiomole's task officers confiscated the weeping woman's items cos they 'caught' her selling by the roadside.
But the lady started pleading that she wasn't selling....that she was only waiting for a vehicle, that that's how she usually places her goods when trying to get a transport.
But the Governor insisted she was lying.

The lady wept for mercy, telling the governor that she's a widow, that her husband was a police officer, only for Gov Oshiomole to say "YOU ARE A WIDOW, GO AND DIE"!

WHAT will President Goodluck Jonathan do to please Nigerians?

In the spirit of the openness and transparency that have characterised his highly successful but much maligned Transformation Agenda (T.A.), his spokesman Dr Reuben Abati issued a statement, saying his principal was “ indisposed” and had sought “precautionary” medical attention.

Abe Lincoln, cross-dressing and the American way: The real history of Thanksgiving

Americans really love Thanksgiving. While Christmas is the undisputed king of American holidays, with its irony-proof annual ritual of greed, envy and lust-driven consumerism in celebration of the birth of a humble, first-century Nazarene Jew who told his followers to sell all of their possessions to the poor, Thanksgiving has nonetheless risen to a prestigious position in the ranks of cherished American holidays. Heck, in 2011, Americans doled out over 15 billion Thanksgiving dollars to the turkey farming industry alone.

Over 40? 15 Tips To Easily Lose Inches and Look (and feel) Sexier Than Ever

1. Weigh yourself every day. I keep an eye on my weight, by having the scales next to my shower. It may seem obsessive, but it helps me not to lose focus. My weight seems to fluctuate within a 2 kg range randomly. I don’t panic if it gets to the top of the range.
2. Water is the key. I don’t know why, but drinking water really helps me. The more water I drink, the better my body functions. (If you don’t like water, put a few drops of apple juice in the glass to give it some flavor.) And I don’t stop drinking before I weigh myself, because I would be kidding myself. Weight loss starts with honesty to yourself.

Say ‘Thank You

Have you given any thought to how much getting there is in thanks giving?
"Thanks" is what you say when the Starbucks clerk hands your venti-latte-extra-whipped-cream through the drive-up window. Offering thanks for life's bounty is a common prelude to the turkey and pumpkin pie throughout the U.S. on Thursday.
But the thanks I'm talking about is the kind that's much more intentional than automatic. It's an act of appreciation, filled with meaning and sincerity. That's the kind of gratitude that pays back in spades, according to research by Martin Seligman, PhD, director of the Penn Positive Psychology Center at University of Pennsylvania.
