President Trumps pardon of Jack Johnson is as welcome as it was unexpected

There is a particular irony in the fact that it took President Donald Trump, hardly a champion of rights for African-Americans and other racial minorities, to be the one who pardoned former heavyweight champion Jack Johnson.



An African-American who is among the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time, Johnson was convicted by an all-white jury in 1913 of violating the Mann Act, which was enacted in 1910 and made it a felony to transport a woman across state lines for “immoral purposes.”

His conviction was a glaring miscarriage of justice and many, notably Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and filmmaker Ken Burns, have championed Johnson’s cause and pushed for a pardon. Congress passed a resolution in 2015 calling for Johnson’s pardon, but President Obama didn’t sign it.

Eric Holder, who was President Obama’s attorney general from 2009 through 2015, told WPIX in New York in 2016 that allegations of domestic violence against Johnson made him difficult to pardon.

Nigeria vs Atletico Madrid : Diego Simeone lauds Nigeria team B

Nigeria vs Atletico Madrid – Diego Simeone, the Atletico Madrid of Spain Coach, has described the international friendly between his team and Nigeria’s Super Eagles in Uyo as a tough tie. Eagles team B lost 2-3 to the 2018 Europa League Cup winners on Tuesday.



Simeone also told a post-match briefing at Godswill Akpabio International Stadium that the Super Eagles gave a good account of themselves.

“”We are happy to be here today. It was a difficult match though we won. The Super Eagles played very well, they tried,” Simeone said. The coach said that his team came with the mind to play and win even though it was a friendly match. The Super Eagles Coach, Salisu Yusuf, commended his boys for their superlative performance in spite of the loss. Yusuf saiad that although his team played very well Atletico Madrid showed maturity and experience, adding that the two goals conceded by his team were cheap.

 “”We played compact football, they have maturity and were more experienced than us. ““We are going to develop the team to the next level. They played against the best,” he said. He said with such performance the Eagles team B could metamorphose into dependable team for the future. The Super Eagles Captain, Musa Mohammed, said they were happy to trade tackles with the Spanish premier league giants. Mohammed also told NAN that they played according to instructions. The News Agency of Nigeria reports that goals from Angel Correa, Fernando Torres and Borja Garces denied the Super Eagles B side a victory in the entertaining match. The Super Eagles scored two quality goals through Kelechi Nwakali (30th minute) and second half substitute Usman Mohammed. Observers said Mohammed’s goal brought back memories of Nigerian legend Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha. Roberto Olabe equalised for Atletico Madrid and Torres, who was introduced in the second, half scored the second goal for team. (NAN)

Amazon Threats Are Not In My Lane!! Says Trumps Top Economic Adviser

President Donald Trump’s top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, says it’s not his job to weigh in on his boss’ repeated threats against private e-commerce company Amazon.



“That’s not in my lane,” Kudlow, who chairs the White House’s National Economic Council, said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “I can’t really comment specifically. I haven’t looked at that.”

“Well it comes under the National Economic Council, doesn’t it?” asked host George Stephanopoulos.

“Well, I suppose so,” Kudlow responded. “I haven’t really been involved in that discussion. Look, the president is a man of many opinions. It’s up to him. He may be carrying the ball. I can’t really comment on it.”

Trump has ramped up his attacks against Amazon in recent weeks, accusing the company of avoiding taxes and running a “post office scam.” He has also targeted The Washington Post, which is owned by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, calling the newspaper a lobbyist organization for the company.

On Friday, The Los Angeles Times reported that Trump “personally pushed U.S. Postmaster General Megan Brennan to double the rate the Postal Service charges Amazon.com and other firms to ship packages,” a move the newspaper said would cost the companies billions of dollars.

Many of Trump’s claims about Amazon’s business and its relationship with the U.S. Postal Service are outdated or plainly false, according to the website PolitiFact. Amazon pays taxes in most states, and it has “provided some help to the financial picture of the Postal Service,” according to the agency.

But Kudlow, a free market advocate who opened his former CNBC television show “The Kudlow Report” by reciting the motto, “We believe that free market capitalism is the best path to prosperity,” again declined to push back on the president’s claim that Amazon was costing the Postal Service money.

“I’ve seen the figures, offense and defense, on that one,” he said. “To be honest with you, I have seen numbers. You can probably do this on both sides. A lot of the numbers, by the way, have not been made available. We’ll see.” 

JAMB to hold mop-up UTME May 26

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board on Sunday said that it had set May 26 for rescheduled Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examinations for more than 12, 000 candidates across the country.

The Board’s Head of Media, Dr Fabian Benjamin, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.



According to Benjamin, more than 12, 000 candidates are expected to sit for the mop-up examinations in few of its centres across the country.

This category of candidates, he explained, are those whose biometrics were not  captured during the initial period of the UTME in March.

He said: ““It would also include those, who are yet to see their results since the end of the examinations in March till date and have not been involved in any form of malpractice.

“It will also include those, who were unable to print out their e-slip before the earlier examinations and those whose centres were cancelled for suspected malpractices.’’

According to him, “there are centres that were cancelled because of suspicious activities but the board was unable to identify the actual culprits.

However, he said that those, who were involved and caught in illicit acts and centres where a case of malpractice has been established against them would not partake in the rescheduled examinations.

7 Signs You Have Staphylococus,STDs or UTI and Why Antibiotics no Longer Works

” How I Was Able To Completely Get Rid Of This Stubborn Staphylococcus After Trying Every Drug With No Result…”

As a good looking fun loving bachelor. there were many nights I go out with my friends, almost tipsy.

Pick up girls and have sex till the next morning.

Okay, I am going to quickly brief you on how I met Amaka in on one of such night chills, how she gave me staph and Herpes and  how I came across this natural solution that flushed out the infections after spending thousands of naira on drugs,also where and how you can get this solution within 48 hours.


I have been in a relationship with a girl I love so much for 4 years now, we have made so many plans for the future and I was even going to pop the question (Will you marry me?) soonest. …..she came over to my house on this fateful day, we were gisting as we normally do when her phone rang and she kept cutting the call. At some point she excused herself to pick the call which is not usually the way its been between us.

 I was worried there was something wrong or that she was hiding something from me. Curiosity got the best of me and that night I went through her call logs, chats and text messages.  I was broken with the kind of things I saw on her phone. I was broken but I couldn’t speak up just yet and alcohol seemed like the only solution to my problem. 

I just kept looking at the ring, I was going to propose to her in few days but I was making necessary plans to make that day memorable for us. At a bar close to the house I sat there to drink that night, a lady walked up to me , sat on a chair close to where I was…she said her name is Amaka we got talking and before I could say jack robinson we were both drunk. What happened afterwards I really cant remember, but then I woke up the next morning in my house to the girl I met in the bar snuggled up beside me on my bed.

I felt bad I had cheated on my girl friend, but then I had the excuse she was doing the same.

Fast forward to two months after , I had called it quit with my partner but I wasn’t feeling same way. I started having symptoms such as:

1 . Frequent urinating
 2. Light boils 
3. Sexual inadequacies of all sorts that only lasted for one round of sex
 4. Loss of sexual urge 
5. Watery sperm 
6. Some worm like movement within the body 
7. Pain while urinating

My next thought was to go the hospital immediately  As I couldn’t understand what was going on with me.

I took some tests and tested positive to STAPYLOCOCCUS AUREUS. Staphylococcus aureus is the most widespread infection in Nigeria. It is a a very complex disease, apart from being contracted sexually or as a toilet infection; there are some other ways of getting infected. If you have contracted any form of disease in the past like, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes, urinary tract infection  etc, which you may have treated but not totally cured, could lead to staph infection. The doctor prescribed some certain drugs for me to use which I used religiously. 

After completing the dosage of the prescribed drugs by the doctor, the symptoms disappeared. 2 months down the line, they came back,this time double. I became bothered.  Why Didn’t the Antibiotics The Doctor Prescribed, Work? I didnt have to thin too far. Google answered it .

3 slaughtered by herdsmen, 10 killed by bandits in fresh Kaduna, Benue attacks

No fewer than 13 persons have been killed in fresh attacks in four villages in Birnin Gwari, Kaduna State, and Ukemberagya community, Gaambe-Tiev council ward of Logo Local Government Area of Benue State.

While 10 were killed by bandits in Birnin Gwari communities on Tuesday, three others were slaughtered in Benue by herdsmen, yesterday. In the Birnin Gwari incident, which came less than three days after Tukur Buratai, Chief of Army Staff, gave his men a three-week ultimatum to flush out bandits from the area,“10 bodies of people killed were recovered, while many are unaccounted for,” Malam Umar, a resident, was quoted as saying in a statement by a group, Birnin Gwari Wakabias for Security and Good Governance. The armed bandits attacked the villages around 5.00 p.m, lasting about three and half hours. Also, the armed bandits burnt houses and grains stock of the affected villages, while several other persons were injured. Confirming the attack, Kaduna State police spokesman, Mukhtar Aliyu, said: “Yes, I can confirm to you that there was an attack in Birnin Gwari, but it is sketchy for now.

 We will brief you when we get details.” 3 killed in Benue In the Benue attack, three persons were feared dead, while scores sustained serious injuries early yesterday when gunmen suspected to be herdsmen attacked Ukemberagya community, Gaambe-Tiev council ward of Logo local government area. The attackers also set ablaze several houses, huts and food barns in five villages in the affected community. The latest attack came barely 24 hours after Vice President Yemi Osinbajo visited the local government area to commiserate with victims of herdsmen attack in the area who now reside in IDPs camp at Anyiiin.

 Wakabia gathered from a source in one of the affected communities that the armed  herdsmen stormed the council ward at about   6:30am shooting sporadically and razing the besieged villages. According to the source, “they came around 6:30am, shooting and razing our homes, farmlands and food barns at Tse-Mue, Torkaa, Mgbakpa, Torjem and Ifer villages. The operation lasted till about 9:00am when they pulled out in their usual hit and run style. “It was after the attackers had left that we managed to enter the village and our farms to search for our loved ones who were missing.



At the moment, we have recovered the corpses of three persons, including those of Bem Torjem, Apedzan Chia and Akpuku Koya, which have been deposited at the mortuary in Anyiin. The injured are also receiving treatment in the hospital and clinics in the area. “As we speak there is palpable fear in neigbouring communities because the affected villages have been deserted as people are fleeing in droves to seek safety in those villages. “We are still searching the bushes because many others are still missing and unaccounted for especially our children and women so casualty figure may increase but we pray it doesn’t. Another eyewitness, told Wakabia that those killed in the attack were returnees from the Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs camp at Anyiin   who were sacked from their homes in January.

In Kaduna - Kidnapper kidnapped over 100 people in 4 days , demand ransoms

Armed bandits have reportedly kidnapped over 100 people along the Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna highway in just four days.
In a report by Reuters, Surajo Usman, an official of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) reported that he escaped an abduction attempt which has claimed over 120 people in just four days.



"Over 120 people were kidnapped between Friday and today, Tuesday along the Birnin Gwari-Kaduna road," he said.

Yahaya Hussaini, who works for a civil society organisation, also reported that his group's motorcade was attacked on Sunday, May 13, by bandits armed with assault rifles.

He said, "On Sunday, in our entourage alone four vehicles were blocked by the kidnappers in military fatigue. They kidnapped about 48 people. Many of those vehicles attacked are still left on the road and the luggage of victims still litters it."

An unnamed NURTW official also told PRNigeria that most of the kidnapped victims were passengers travelling between North and Southern parts of the country and the organisation has warned its members to desist from using the road.

Keith Richards Explains How He Got Rid Of Trump Nearly 30 Years Ago

Guitarist Keith Richards was once so angry at Donald Trump that he pulled out a knife ― when the future president wasn’t in the room ― and stabbed a table.

The rock icon told the BBC that back in 1989, Trump was the promoter of the Rolling Stones’ “Steel Wheels” tour dates in Atlantic City. When the band arrived, however, they found Trump’s name in huge letters and the band’s name in much smaller type.



“I got out my trusty blade, stuck it in the table and said: ‘You have to get rid of this man!’” Richards told the BBC. “Now America has to get rid of him. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!”

Concert promoter Michael Cohl told a version of Richards’ story in 2015, saying Trump had agreed to host a pay-per-view event featuring the Stones in Atlantic City. But the band wanted nothing to do with him ― and when Trump turned up, Richards ordered Cohl to get rid of him.

“Keith pulls out his knife and slams it on the table and says, ‘What the hell do I have you for? Do I have to go over there and fire him myself?” Cohl recalled, per the Los Angeles Times. “One of us is leaving the building – either him or us.’”

North Korea says may reconsider summit with Trump, suspends talks with South

SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea threw next month's unprecedented summit between Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump into doubt on Wednesday, threatening weeks of diplomatic progress by saying it may reconsider if Washington insists on pursuing a one-sided denuclearization deal.



The North's official KCNA news agency said earlier Pyongyang had called off high-level talks with Seoul in the first sign of trouble in what had been warming ties.

Citing first vice minister of foreign affairs Kim Kye Gwan, KCNA later said the fate of the U.S.-North Korea summit, as well as bilateral relations, "would be clear" if Washington spoke of a "Libya-style" denuclearization for the North.

"If the U.S. is trying to drive us into a corner to force our unilateral nuclear abandonment, we will no longer be interested in such dialogue and cannot but reconsider our proceeding to the DPRK-U.S. summit," Kim Kye Gwan said, referring to the North by its official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Kim specifically criticized U.S. national security adviser John Bolton, who has called for North Korea to quickly give up its nuclear arsenal in a deal that mirrors Libya's abandonment of its weapons of mass destruction.

North Korea previously clashed with Bolton when he worked under the Bush administration, calling him "human scum" and a "bloodsucker".

"We shed light on the quality of Bolton already in the past, and we do not hide our feeling of repugnance toward him," Kim said.

The statements, combined with joint military drills by South Korean and U.S. warplanes, mark a dramatic reversal in tone from recent months when both sides embraced efforts to negotiate.

North Korea had announced it would publicly shut its nuclear test site next week. Trump and Kim are scheduled to meet in Singapore on June 12.

ECONOMIC INCENTIVES

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday the United States would agree to lift sanctions on North Korea if it agreed to completely dismantle its nuclear weapons program.

However, Kim Kye Gwan's statement appeared to reject such an arrangement, saying North Korea would never give up its nuclear program in exchange for economic trade with the United States.

"We have already stated our intention for denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and made clear on several occasions that precondition for denuclearization is to put an end to anti-DPRK hostile policy and nuclear threats and blackmail of the United States," Kim said.

North Korea has always defended its nuclear and missile programs as a necessary deterrent against perceived aggression by the United States, which stations 28,500 troops in South Korea, a legacy of the 1950-53 Korean War.

Asian stock markets dipped after Pyongyang called off the talks with the South that were set for Wednesday. A cancellation of the June 12 summit in Singapore could see tensions flare again even as investors worry about China-U.S. trade friction.

"This will weigh on the Korean reconstruction beneficiaries that have had a strong run on peace and even reunification hopes recently," JPMorgan analysts wrote in a note.

Cee-C says i owe Tobi no apology

Tobi says the kind of support Cee-C is receiving makes her feel like she did nothing wrong in the #BBNaija house.

Following their stay in the Big Brother Naija house, Cee-C has said that she doesn't think she owes Tobi any apology.
The housemate made this known during their interview with Media Room Hub, where they also spoke about their controversial relationship, which was one of the highlights of the season.



According to Tobi, while he doesn't hate Cee-C for her actions in the house, he wants her to accept that she was wrong, apologize and then try to be better.

Read excerpts from the interview below:

On if other housemates frustrated her into depression
Cee-C -  Yeah. Coming out of the house, I realized that other housemates saw me as a threat to them and they tried to pull me down. I feel like people were intentionally doing certain things to frustrate me.


Cee-C - I won’t say because someone did one or two things and I reacted, I don’t have... You can be angry but don’t react that way, that’s not cool.

For me, it’s all about learning [and] knowing the fact that bottling thing inside is not good enough. You can explode at any time and hurt the other person.

On apologizing and making things right
Tobi – To be honest, nobody can tell me that part [Cee-C abusing him] in the house was a game. Of course, professionally I don’t hate her. A lot of things I did in the house and how I was able to handle a lot of things in the house was because I still see her as a friend.

But for me, for this relationship to continue three things are involved. Accept you were wrong, apologize and then try to be better.

Cee-C – I don’t want to sound defensive in here but the truth is I don’t think I owe Tobi any apology as at now. You know why? Because I have already apologized for using certain words at him.

When I went into the house, I didn’t ask Tobi to come around me, I didn’t force him to like me. He should have simply walked up to me to tell me what I did wrong.

One thing I know I did very wrong was the day that I used a lot of bad words to him [and] for that I [have] apologized to Tobi.

Tobi - It wasn’t the first time.


On apologizing to Tobi for insulting him

Cee-C – I apologized not because he was not wrong or did not do anything for me to do what I did, but because no matter what, attitude is good with all regardless, and I feel like that is not who I want to be.

I don’t want to hear Cee-C is this Cee-C is that, and I don’t want that for myself either. Everybody watched the show; you all saw what went down in the Big brother house. You all saw what Cee-c did wrong, what Tobi did wrong.

I agree I was wrong by using certain words for Tobi and I apologized to him. Whether he thinks it was a game of whatever, that’s his cup of tea and he can drink it.


On working together in the future
Tobi: We can work together, I am very professional or let me say I have to be professional. When I was head of house, I had issues with a lot of people. People didn't like me, but regardless, we come together and achieve. Smile when we have to smile, [and] get the job done.

For me, I would like to get the job done regardless of personal issues. So working professionally? Definitely, we can. But to try and be in a relationship? We can’t.

We just have to be friends, I repeat just friends. Looking at the kind of support she is getting, she feels there is nothing wrong with what she did or said in the house. Before leaving the house she felt that way, leaving the house now she even feel more like that.

Cee-C - Sorry about what exactly, like I said earlier I owe Tobi no apology.

Dokubo warns N-Delta leaders against selfish interests

Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Affairs, SAPND, and Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Professor Charles Dokubo, has urged leaders and elders of the Niger Delta not to pursue individual interests, but offer advice and guidance to benefit the people of the region.



A statement by Murphy Ganagana, Special Assistant (Media) to SAPND, said Dokubo who spoke yesterday, noted that issues of the Niger Delta were being addressed, describing the amnesty programme as work in progress, saying it was time for Niger Deltans to put things in order and do the needful.

According to him: “We have questioned authority, we have questioned governance; and now, we also have the time to set our house in order; to do the things that we are supposed to do. I believe that with the powerful organization that has come to my office and the guidance you are going to give me; guidance that will only benefit our Niger Delta people, guidance that is not supposed to benefit individuals, but our people, I believe we shall be on course.” He spoke in Abuja when members of the national executive committee of the Pan Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, paid him a courtesy visit in his office. Expressing determination to chart a new direction for the amnesty programme, Dokubo harped on the need for qualitative training that would give jobs to beneficiaries, declaring that  this was the panacea to sustainable peace in the Niger Delta.

Biafra Group Exposes Why Buhari Travels Out For Medical Check

The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) on Tuesday alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari was travelling to London to strategize with Queen Elizabeth of Enland’s “Royal house cabals” on how to “frustrate the emergence of Biafra.”



MASSOB made the allegeation while dismissing claims by the presidency that Buhari was travelling to London for a medical check-up.

Leader of the pro-Biafra group, Uchenna Madu insisted that Buhari’s sudden travel to London for medical a check up was to deceive the people that ”found themselves in an enslavement called Nigeria.”



The statement reads, “Buhari did not go for medical treatment but went to London to liase and strategize with the British Queen Elizabeth, Prime Minister and the Royal house cabals for another easier, effective and diplomatic means to frustrate the emergence of Biafra.


“Britain is more jittery and uncomfortable since the meeting of President Buhari and Trump of USA. The meeting which exposed the false foundation of Nigeria against the British deceit shocked the the government of United Kingdom and their collaborators.MASSOB call on the people of Biafra to be more vigilance, our people must know today that the arch enemy of Biafra is not Hausa Fulani but the British government. They deceived the world against Biafra during Nigeria. Biafra, today, they are trying to frustrate the independence of Biafra from Nigeria which they will never succeed. The deceit, hypocrisy and lies of Queen Elizabeth led Britain have been exposed MASSOB insist that with the current consciousness and desire for Biafra actualization and restoration, no amount of President Buhari meeting, lobbying and manoeuvring with the British and their Islamic allies will ever stop the emergence of Biafra because God, History and Humanity are on our side, Biafra Revolution is indestructible.

Trump spars with Kerry over possibly illegal talks on Iran deal

Former Secretary of State John Kerry on Monday dismissed President Trump’s suggestion that Kerry’s discussions with the Iranian foreign minister about salvaging the Iran deal are “possibly illegal.”

“I think every American would want every voice possible urging Iran to remain in compliance with the nuclear agreement that prevented a war,” Kerry’s spokesman said in a statement. “Secretary Kerry stays in touch with his former counterparts around the world just like every previous secretary of state.”



Kerry helped broker the 2015 agreement.

“Like America’s closest allies, he believes it is important that the nuclear agreement, which took the world years to negotiate, remains effective as countries focus on stability in the region,” the spokesman added.

Last week, the Boston Globe reported that Kerry met with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif at the United Nations in April “seeking to salvage the Iran deal he helped craft.”

Trump responded to Kerry’s diplomatic freelancing in a tweet on Monday morning.

“The United States does not need John Kerry’s possibly illegal Shadow Diplomacy on the very badly negotiated Iran Deal,” Trump tweeted. “He was the one that created this MESS in the first place!”

The president was presumably referring to a possible violation of the Logan Act, an 18th-century law that prohibits private citizens, as Kerry now is, from conducting negotiations with foreign governments. Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani and his informal adviser Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard law professor, both raised the issue over the weekend.

There have been no prosecutions under the act for well over a century, although there was speculation in 2017 that contacts before Trump took office between his nominee for national security adviser, Michael Flynn, and the Russian ambassador to the U.S. might have constituted a violation.

The Obama administration hailed the agreement limiting Tehran’s nuclear program as historic. But Trump has long hinted that he may withdraw from the Iran deal, calling it “one of the worst deals I have ever witnessed.”

The president faces a May 12 deadline to decide whether the United States will remain in the pact.

During a state visit to Washington, D.C., last month, French President Emmanuel Macron urged Trump to stay in the deal. According to the Globe, Kerry also quietly met with Macron.

Over the weekend, London’s Guardian newspaper reported that Trump aides hired an Israeli private intelligence agency to orchestrate a “dirty ops” campaign against Obama administration officials who had helped negotiate the Iran nuclear deal.

The New Yorker magazine said that the Israeli operatives were the same spies hired by disgraced filmmaker Harvey Weinstein to gather dirt on his female accusers.

California to require solar panels on most new homes

There's no question that solar power is entering the mainstream, but California is about to give it a giant boost. The state's Energy Commission is expected to approve new energy standards that would require solar panels on the roofs of nearly all new homes, condos and apartment buildings from 2020 onward. There will be exemptions for homes that either can't fit solar panels or would be blocked by taller buildings or trees, but you'll otherwise have to go green if your property is brand new.



The plan doesn't require that a home reach net-zero status (where the solar power completely offsets the energy consumed in a year). However, it does provide "compliance credits" for homebuilders who install storage batteries like Tesla's Powerwall, letting them build smaller panel arrays knowing that excess energy will be available to use off-hours.

The new standards are poised to hike construction costs by $25,000 to $30,000 (about half of which is directly due to solar), but the self-produced energy is estimated to save owners $50,000 to $60,000 in operating costs over the solar technology's expected 25-year lifespan.

Short of a surprise rejection at the Energy Commission's May 9th vote, this will make California the first state to have a solar panel requirement. It's relatively easy to do this in the region given California's abundance of warm, sunny days and high real estate prices -- it's hard to see this happening in the American Midwest, where winter and lower home prices could make solar decidedly less practical. Critics have complained that this could make California's housing shortage worse by pricing people out of those homes that are available, and note that most people in the state only really draw on non-renewable energy when they come home from work and strain the electrical grid.

Even so, this could change the landscape for both California's energy and the market as a whole. Right now, no more than 20 percent of new single-family homes in California include solar power. Boost that by five times and that's a lot more business for panel makers and installers. That, in turn, could reduce the costs of panels and make solar more affordable in many places, not just in California or even the US.

Michael Avenatti Scorches Rudy Giuliani Over His Latest Train Wreck Interview

Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti saw Rudy Giuliani’s latest interview about his new client, President Donald Trump, and had this reaction: “I can’t believe that actually just happened.”



Avenatti appeared on WB Newsline “This Week” on Sunday after the former mayor of New York sat down with host George Stephanopoulos in a messy and at times rambling interview about Trump’s knowledge of a $130,000 payment to Daniels, a porn star whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford.

“It’s an absolute, unmitigated disaster for Rudy Giuliani and the president,” Avenatti added. “It’s a train wreck.”



 Days earlier, Giuliani made some bombshell revelations on Fox News, telling host Sean Hannity that Trump repaid his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen for the $130,000 payment. The president had denied knowing anything about the payment, which was allegedly hush money for an affair that Daniels said she had with Trump.

“This guy’s all over the map in the last 72 hours on some very simple facts that should be very straightforward,” Avenatti said, adding later: “He’s done considerable harm to the president. I think his representation has been nothing short of a disaster.”

Following Giuliani’s appearance on Fox News, Trump told reporters that the former prosecutor was new on the case and that “he’ll get his facts straight.”

On Sunday, Giuliani parrotted Trump’s statement, contradicting himself and taking aim at Daniels for appearing on “Saturday Night Live” the night before. Trump has also appeared on the show in the past.

“The more Rudy Giuliani talks ... the better our case gets,” Avenatti said.

Take a look at the full response in the video above.

Lagos pastor arrested for allegedly raping nine-year-old

A 54-year-old pastor of a church, Christ Abiding Church, on Bankole Street, Somolu, Lagos, has been accused of raping a nine-year-old daughter of his neighbour.

The pastor, Udoh Okon, reportedly molested the girl in his wife’s shop on several occasions before the alleged crime was reported to the police on April 18.



Wakabia Metro gathered that the mother of the girl had observed semen dripping out of her private parts while she was asleep.

After pestering her, she allegedly told her mother that Okon slept with her and that he had been doing so since 2017.

The Pedro Police Division consequently arrested the pastor, who was paraded on Wednesday by the state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi.

Imohimi said although the pastor denied the allegation, a medical examination of the girl revealed that her hymen had been ruptured.

He said, “The command recorded a case of defilement which was reported at the Pedro Police Station. According to the complaint received from one Peace Effiong, her nine-year-old daughter has been behaving unusually. So, on April 13, 2018, while the little girl was asleep, the mother observed that semen was dripping from her private parts.

“She was alarmed. She woke up the girl who told her that one Pastor Udo Okon, the man in charge of Christ Abiding Church, had been having unlawful carnal knowledge of her since last year. The victim went further to reveal that it was in the pastor’s wife’s shop that she was raped.  Investigation into the case is in progress.”

Imohimi, who urged parents to be vigilant about their children, said the command would henceforth arrest negligent parents and prosecute them in accordance with sections 247 and 249 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

Court demands N360,000 for man accused of N360,000 fraud

A car dealer, Nelson Oyem, has been remanded in the Ikoyi Prison after he was accused of defrauding a man of N360,000.

Oyem, who was arraigned at the Ebute-Meta Magistrate’s Court, was granted bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum.



The Chief Magistrate, Mr. O.A. Komolafe, however, added that the sureties should deposit the sum of N360,000 in the account of the Chief Registrar of Lagos State before the bail could be perfected.

The 32-year-old was arraigned on April 17 on two counts of fraud and stealing.

The charges read, “That you, Nelson Oyem, sometime in January 2017, on Pastor Joel Street, Ogombo, Ajah, Lagos, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did fraudulently obtain the sum of N360,000 under the pretext of clearing one 4Runner Jeep, 2002 model, from Cotonou port, thereby committing an offence punishable under Section 314 (1) of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.

“That you, Nelson Oyem, on the same date, time and place, in the aforementioned magisterial district, did steal the sum of N360,000, property of one Osemeke Okeibunor, thereby committing an offence punishable under Section 237 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria 2015.”

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charges and elected summary trial.

His counsel, Spurgeon Ataene, asked the court to admit him to bail in liberal terms.

The police prosecutor, Inspector Adams Cousin, did not object to the bail application.

Cousin announced the presence of the complainant and the Investigating Police Officer, Inspector Alli Uwensuri, of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Yaba.

The chief magistrate admitted Oyem to bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties each in the like sum, adding that the sureties must be resident within the court jurisdiction.

“The sureties should show evidence of residency registration by the Lagos State Residents Registration Agency and tax payment to the Lagos State Government; the residence and office/business addresses of the sureties should be verified and the sureties are to deposit the sum of N360,000 only to the Chief Registrar of the High Court of Lagos State. The said sum is to be paid into the Chief Registrar’s account,” he added.

The case was adjourned till May 16, 2018 for mention.
