Thinking of My Future Wife

   This is not going to be about me, as I am a pretty reserved guy, but instead this will be a letter to my unknown future wife and the hopeful joys we will share together in marriage and s3x. As of writing this now, I am alone, nude and sitting on my chair with a very hard cock.



Here it goes.

Babe I love you. I love your face, hair, smile, laugh, personality, touch, kiss, faith and body. I can’t get enough of it. You’re patient, selfless, caring, helping and stunningly pretty. God has brought us to each other and for that I am eternally grateful to him. I hope and know we can be loving, passionate, and intimate with each other as much as we desire. To look forward to each other every day and be so addicted to each other.

I picture our wedding, holding in each other’s eyes, holding hands, and kissing before everyone in attendance. Oh the feel of your lips and tongue touching mine tantalizes me. Then, after the celebrations of marriage we would be alone together to conduct the most special act between a married man and woman. s3x.

I will leave my mother and father to be one flesh with you, babe. Seeing your naked body as you look at mine. I will cuddle and kiss you all over before caressing and sucking your bo0bs before going down to taste your lovely pink lady place.

I think about you taking my cock in my hand, kissing the head and wrapping your wet tongue around my cock to enjoy it all for you, giving me hand and blowjobs with the naughtiest expression in your eyes. Good girl.

Shortly, you’ll spread your hot legs for me, giving full entry of your pussy. “Put your cock in my pussy and fuck me!” My pleasure, s3xy but not yet. I go to you, put my hard throbbing cock on your stomach thrusting it back and forth on and off your belly playfully teasing you. You love the tease but I can see you wanna get your pussy pounded. “Put it in me baby, please please please fuck me.”

Now I will. I give you every bit of love in my body, both of us feeling agonizing but amazing sensations. You hit the bed and scream in total ecstasy. Suddenly I’m about to explode and feed you my cum, a real meal for you, baby. I let it all over you, making you look even more s3xy than you are.

R0mance - Simple Blessing

In the last two years, my wife has been in a depression. This has changed the frequency and completeness of our intimacy.



I know that this is part of what it means to be in a long and full relationship with another person. It has taught me compassionate love, caretaking love, patient love. I now understand these in a depth not known before – I am grateful for this.

In a rare moment recently, there was a brief parting of the clouds and a beautiful togetherness we were able to share.

I came home from a business trip, having been away five days. When my wife gave me a hug it was fully open and receptive. When she fully presses her abdomen into me, it has always been a way of her saying, I’m ready to receive you. I’m not sure if it’s even conscious or not, but it was an invitation.

That night when she came to bed she was nude and moved right to my side. I put my arm around her and the feeling of flesh against flesh, the warmth, the pure simple intimacy of this moment was sensual and erotic.

I closed my eyes and smiled, it’s been a long time. I knew to treasure this.

Our kisses began softly, gently yet with a familiarity of movement and feeling. It’s been a while, but we still know each other and that was playing underneath the tenderness of connecting again.

Our hands found each other, familiar pathways of pleasure, play, teasing. She laid back on the bed, open and receptive to being explored. I was fully aroused, just to touch her, the feeling of her is all I need. I simply wanted her to feel good, to feel the movement of us together and leave the worry so often in her mind behind.

Ero3ic - Our Weekend: Part 2

“Babe? I’m going to take a shower, and then I’m going to bed.”
“I’ve got to get something from the bedroom. I’ll take my shower when you’re done.”
“Are you sure that you don’t want something in the shower instead?” I smile coyly.
You look at me with a confused expression for a second. When you realize what I mean, you laugh, kiss me, then smack my butt as I walk away.



I get into the shower and wash my body. Right as I am about to rinse off the body wash, you pull back the shower curtain and step into the tub with me, and under the shower head. You start to kiss me, and then step back.

“You taste like soap,” you say with a laugh.
“Well, that’s probably because I haven’t rinsed it off yet,” I reply with a bit of sass in my voice.

I trade you places. You pick up the shampoo bottle, and after squirting some into your hand, begin to apply it liberally to your entire body. After rinsing your body, you wash and rinse your hair.

You wrap your arms around me and kiss me. You were already starting to get hard when you stepped into the tub, but by now your friend is standing completely at attention. This is the first time you’ve ever been in the shower with me, so I’m already turned on. Add that to the fact that the water acts as a bit of a lubricant, and I don’t need much else.

I back against the wall and grab the rail for balance as you wrap one of my legs around your waist. You guide your penis into me, then wrap my other leg around you. We had tried this position earlier today with me against first a mattress then a wall, but it didn’t work because I didn’t have anything to hold on to for balance. This time was proving to be SO much better. As you thrust in and out of me, I look down to see what you’re doing to me. You look so very s3xy.

Mubi suicide blast biggest attack in Adamawa

At least 50 people were killed on Tuesday when a suicide bomber blew himself up in a mosque in northeast Nigeria, police said, in an attack blamed on Boko Haram jihadists. The blast happened during early morning prayers at the Madina mosque in the Unguwar Shuwa area of Mubi, some 200 kilometres (125 miles) by road from the Adamawa state capital YolaIt was the biggest attack in Adamawa since December 2016, when two female suicide bombers killed 45 people at a crowded market in the town of Madagali.



Security analysts said Tuesday’s bombing again underlined the threat posed by Boko Haram, despite an overall decline in deaths from attacks by the group last year. Adamawa state police spokesman Othman Abubakar told AFP that at least 50 were killed in the Mubi attack. “It was a (suicide) bomber who mingled with worshippers. He entered the mosque along with other worshippers for the morning prayers. “It was when the prayers were on that he set off his explosives.” Asked who was responsible, Abubakar said: “We all know the trend. We don’t suspect anyone specifically but we know those behind such kind of attacks.” – Roof blown off – The attack bore all the hallmarks of Boko Haram, the Islamist militants whose insurgency has left at least 20,000 people dead and more than 2.6 million others homeless since 2009. Haruna Furo, head of the Adamawa state emergency management agency, and Musa Hamad Bello, chairman of the Mubi north local government area, both confirmed the attack. They gave lower death tolls but both said the number killed was likely to rise. Another emergency services official described the blast as “devastating” and said there were “high casualties”.

Abubakar Sule, who lives near the mosque, said he was present during the rescue operation and that 40 people died on the spot while several others were taken to hospital with severe and life-threatening injuries. “The roof was blown off. People near the mosque said the prayer was mid-way when the bomber, who was obviously in the congregation, detonated his explosives. “This is obviously the work of Boko Haram.”

 Yan St-Pierre, a counter-terrorism specialist at the Modern Security Consulting Group in Berlin, said the bombing fitted a pattern of previous attacks. “It fits with the increasing lethality and potency of suicide attacks of the organisation’s current ‘hot streak’, which started approximately four weeks ago,” he said. The latest Global Terrorism Index, published last week, said that deaths attributed to Boko Haram in 2016 fell by 80 percent. But St-Pierre said despite this “Boko Haram remains an extremely potent and dangerous organisation” which was far from being “on the back foot”, as the military has claimed. – ‘Operational presence’ – In October 2012, at least 40 people were killed in an attack on student housing in Mubi that was widely blamed on Boko Haram. In June 2014, at least 40 football supporters, including women and children, died in a bomb attack after a match in the Kabang area of the town. Boko Haram briefly overran Mubi in late 2014 as its fighters rampaged across northeastern Nigeria, seizing towns and villages in its quest to establish a hardline Islamic state. The town’s name was changed temporarily to Madinatul Islam, or “City of Islam” in Arabic, during the Boko Haram occupation.

 But it has been peaceful since the military and the civilian militia ousted them from the town, which is a commercial hub and home to the Adamawa State University. Yet in recent months, Boko Haram activity has been concentrated around Madagali, in the far north of Adamawa near the border with neighbouring Borno state. There have been repeated raids and suicide bombings, blamed on Boko Haram remnants pushed out of their camps in the Sambisa Forest area of Borno. Boko Haram fighters are also said to be hiding in the Mandara mountains, which forms the border of Adamawa and Nigeria with neighbouring Cameroon, where there has also been more attacks. Ryan Cummings, from security analysts Signal Risk, said the attack suggests Boko Haram “has an active operational presence in Adamawa” and retained the capacity to hit hard. “It appears that despite open calls for Boko Haram to desist in such acts of mass violence against Muslim civilian interests, that these have not been heeded,” he added.

Numan attacks, 105 killed in Mubi - Adamawa

By Umar Yusuf & Johnbosco Agbakwuru YOLA –  No fewer than 105 persons have been confirmed dead in two deadly attacks in Adamawa State in the last 48 hours, with several scores of others sustaining serious injuries.



While 60 persons were killed  by two suicide bombers at a mosque in Mubi, early yesterday, morning, 45 nomadic Fulani herdsmen were allegedly killed by unknown gunmen at Kikan community in Numan Local Government Area of the state.

The twin suicide bomb blast occurred in the popular Shiwa Mosque, located at Anguwar Medina, in Yelwa quarters of Mubi, the commercial nerve centre of Adamawa State. Although eyewitness account said 60 persons died in the blasts, the state police command, which confirmed 50, also confirmed the 45 killed in Numan. According to an eyewitness, the two suicide bombers ran from two directions into the mosque at exactly 5:05am, yesterday, while Muslim faithful were observing the SUBHI (morning prayers). The eyewitness, who identified himself as Bello Fari, said he escaped death by the whiskers as he was equally rushing to meet up the two rak’at prayers. Fari said: “My house is close to the mosque. I was almost late for the prayers and as I was rushing, I saw two supposed worshippers rushing to enter the mosque though there was some gap between me and them. Moments after the duo entered the mosque, there was a loud bang. “The bombers waited until the nearly 150-capacity mosque was filled to capacity before they struck.

 “Moment after the blast, the prayer was short-lived as the worshippers scampered for their safety, even as I watched from a close range.” Fari said he immediately ran back into his house to evacuate his family to another part of the city for safety, saying the magnitude of the attack and the loss of human lives were so devastating. Speaking on the attack, Chairman of Mubi North Local Government Area, Alhaji Musa Bello, who confirmed the incident, said though the casualty figure was being compiled, it was  dozens, with many more injured, some critically. 50 confirmed dead — Police Adamawa State police command also confirmed the attack, with the spokesman, Othman Abubakar (SP), saying 50 persons were confirmed killed and that investigation into the incident was underway. “We have 50 dead and we are now trying to get the exact number of those injured,” Mr. Abubakar said. Adamawa State government said a new security arrangement was in the offing in Mubi to prevent further occurrences.

The Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Ahmed Sajoh, said government and security agencies were on top of the situation, even as normalcy has returned to the ancient city. Mubi, the commercial nerve centre of Adamawa State, was the headquarters of Boko Haram insurgents, when they overran five local governments in the state in 2014 and renamed Mubi “Medinatul Islam.” Efforts to talk to some of the injured in the hospital in Yola, where they were taken for treatment, were frustrated by heavily armed soldiers who barred journalists from gaining entry into the facility.

It’s wickedness  — Gov Reacting to the blast, Governor of Adamawa State, Senator Muhammed Umar Jibrilla, described it as unfortunate. The governor in a statement in Yola, yesterday, said the attack was an act of wickedness perpetrated by criminals who were bent on destroying the hard earned peace in Mubi and other parts of the state. “We will continue to ensure that our people are protected and given a sense of security which is the most important responsibility of any government. ‘’We have also engaged all security agencies to ensure that this type of wicked act does not repeat itself in any part of the state. “We call for calm as security has been stepped up in Mubi and environs and we will not rest until those behind this wicked act are brought to book, and may the souls of the departed receive mercy with God.” Senator Jibrilla called for calm from all residents of Mubi and urged the people to come forward with any information that will help security agencies apprehend the culprits. “It is unfortunate that people will be killed in cold blood in the place of worship. Adamawa is in mourning and my heart bleeds.

Reacting, Franks Edwards, took a swipe at the dancehall artiste, noting that he got into trouble because of his rant on pastors and tithe.

He wrote ”When he said he will beat up a pastor I knew he will get into trouble. Youths pls stay out of violence.

Burna Boy had waded into the ‘tithe controversy, saying God will be happy if he knocks out pastors and preachers.

”The way I genuinely dislike pastor, preachers, e.t.c I might have to knock one of them the Bleep out one of these days.

“I know God will be happy”, he wrote on his twitter page.

Why Obianos electoral victory cannot be challenged - Governor Okorocha

- Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo is congratulating Willie Obiano over the latter's reelection

- Okorocha accuses leaders of his party, the APC, of working at cross-purposes during the electioneering in Anambra state - He wants the APC to resolve all internal issues ahead of future elections in the country Governor Willie Obiano of Imo state has congratulated Chief Willie Obiano, the governor of Anambra state, over his reelection on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA). Okorocha also used the opportunity to urge his own party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) to resolve all internal wrangling ahead of future elections in the country.



The governor, according to the New Telegraph, attributed internal crisis in the APC to the loss the party recorded at the election. He also alleged a lack of genuine commitment on the part if his party members in Anambra state during the election. Okorocha reportedly said Obiano’s victory was too clear to be challenged. He thus advised the candidates of other political parties, who partook in the election, to congratulate Obiano and avoid going to court to question the victory. He however said with the position of the APC in the election, it shows that the party has bright chances in the South East in the future.

He also urged Nigerians to commend President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC-led government at the centre for allowing a level playing ground for all the candidates.

(PDP) in the just concluded Anambra election, changed his stand on the outcome of the exercise and congratulated Willie Obiano. Governor Obiano was declared winner of the election after he defeated the other candidates including Obaze, who initially rejected the outcome of the exercise alleging massive rigging of the process. 

Survivor Series Winners and Losers: Who Emerged in the Raw-SmackDown Competition?

WWE presented the Survivor Series on Sunday night, which saw the Raw brand victorious over SmackDown.



The four-hour show, which took place at the Toyota Center in Houston, peaked early with an incredibly entertaining opening match between The Shield and The New Day. Survivor Series served as a solid show, well worth the $9.99 price of the WWE Network, and creates more interest for January’s dual-brand Royal Rumble.

As for the results:

--The Shield defeated The New Day

--Asuka was the sole survivor in the 5-on-5 Raw vs. SmackDown women’s elimination match

--Baron Corbin defeated The Miz

--The Usos defeated Cesaro and Sheamus

--Charlotte forced Alexa Bliss to submit

--Brock Lesnar defeated AJ Styles

--Triple H and Braun Strowman were the winning members of Team Raw in the 5-on-5 men’s elimination match

In honor of the 5-on-5 elimination match format, which WWE began using in 1987, let’s highlight five winners and losers from the 31st edition of the Survivor Series.

WINNER: Braun Strowman

Wrestling is no simple business, but there is one staple of the industry that is not overly complicated: listen to the crowd.
The audience in the Toyota Center made it known that Braun Strowman was the star of the show.

Strowman is one of WWE’s most popular homegrown talents in the past two decades. He has all the tools, including a spectacular look and size at 6’8” and 385 pounds, to carry the company as world champion.

Despite the company’s interest in booking him as a villain, the cheers from the crowd are overwhelming every time Strowman’s roar hits the speakers. There was no doubt that people wanted to see Strowman deliver hard times on Triple H to end the show.
Will Strowman’s popularity force WWE to re-evaluate its plan of a Brock Lesnar-Roman Reigns main event at WrestleMania 34? Strowman has no clear path for WrestleMania, and he would make for a rare Royal Rumble winner that is cheered by the crowd.

LOSER: The WWE championship

AJ Styles and Brock Lesnar delivered a compelling match, but there could only be one winner, and Lesnar was it.
Imagine if WWE had five giants that dominated all of their competitors? Very quickly, Braun Strowman’s impact (not to mention domination) would feel pedestrian. When there are multiple giants, then no one is a giant. The same problem exists for multiple world champions. There cannot be two equal champions. Vince McMahon affirmed that belief when he had Lesnar defeat Styles at the Survivor Series, and the “Phenomenal One” now returns to SmackDown with a belt that means less than Lesnar’s Universal championship.
The match did serve as a reminder that there is no greater draw on a major stage than Lesnar. Whether the opponent is The Undertaker, Samoa Joe, Goldberg, or Styles, there is no doubt that Lesnar’s authentic fighting style, surprising amount of mobility, and facials add an entirely different dynamic to his matches.

WINNER: Father Time

Father Time remains undefeated, and that includes his work in the wrestling ring.
Kurt Angle and Triple H, both 48 years old, and even 40-year-old John Cena all looked a step (or two) slower in the Survivor Seriesmain event.
If the plan is to feature Triple H vs. Angle at WrestleMania 34, or, for that matter, John Cena vs. Jinder Mahal, then it may be time to reassess both of those matches.

LOSER: Big E

Malia Obama Kissing, Tailgating at First Harvard-Yale Game

Malia Obama Gets Her Pregame Makeout On For Harvard-Yale Game 1 11/20/2017 9:53 AM PST Malia Obama's gonna remember her first Harvard-Yale football game -- and so is the guy she made out with during the tailgate party! Barack and Michelle's oldest was pregaming with friends Saturday outside the Yale Bowl in New Haven, CT, and wound up kissing a mystery guy who seemed to be pulling for Harvard, too ... based on his crimson tee.



The makeout sesh is no big deal -- just a freshman doing what freshmen do -- but the fact Malia lit up a cigarette might not sit well with mom and pop. Remember, Michelle famously disapproved of Barack smoking. We'll say this though ... Malia made out a lot better than her

Natalie Portman on Hollywoods S3xual-Harassment Problem: I Have 100 Stories

Like many actresses, Natalie Portman is still unpacking decades of work tainted by s3xism and s3xual harassment amid the deluge of allegations emerging from Hollywood.



“When I heard everything coming out, I was like, wow, I’m so lucky that I haven’t had this. And then, on reflection, I was like, okay, definitely never been assaulted, definitely not, but I’ve had discrimination or harassment on almost everything I’ve ever worked on in some way,” she said during Sunday’s candid talk at Vulture Festival L.A. The more she reexamined her experiences, other incidents come into sharp relief. “I went from thinking I don’t have a story to thinking, Oh wait, I have 100 stories. And I think a lot of people are having these reckonings with themselves, of things that we just took for granted as like, this is part of the process.”

For example, she says a producer once invited her to fly with him and his company on a private plane to a place she was also going. “I showed up and it was just the two of us, and one bed was made on the plane. Nothing happened, I was not assaulted. I said: ‘This doesn’t make me feel comfortable,’ and that was respected. But that was super not okay, you know? That was really unacceptable and manipulative and could have been — I was scared, you know? But just the fact of any woman, if you’re walking down the street alone at night, you feel scared, and I’m not sure guys know what that [feels like].”

Portman also admitted she turned down work that could lead to her being overly objectified when she was younger. “There was definitely a period where I was reluctant to do any kind of kissing scenes, s3xual scenes. Because [for] my first roles, the reaction people would [give] in reviews [was to] call me a Lolita and things like that, and I got so scared by it,” she said. “And I think that’s also got to be part of our conversation now: When you’re defensive as a woman against being looked at that way, that you’re like, ‘I don’t want to’ — what do we close off of ourselves or diminish in ourselves because we want to protect ourselves?”

Portman noted the overwhelmingly male-dominated film sets she’s experienced throughout her career. “Usually you walk into a movie as the only woman, and you’re often the only woman on set. It’s very rare to have female crew members apart from hair, makeup, and wardrobe — the very stereotypical departments for women to be in — and I think women experience this in a lot of industries,” she said. “If you do get the opportunity to work, you’re often the only woman in the room. I hear this from friends of mine who are lawyers, business people, writers on shows.”

Why Do Some Guys Spend Lavishly On Women But Fail To Take Care Of Their Parents?

I was merry-go-rounding on the Internet this afternoon, then I came across this thread, and I’m pretty sure it will sprout up alot of conversation on Wakabia.



So guys, you are all invited to participate in this conversation.  In all ramifications, this negative trend is quite disheartening, alarming. After God, your family ought to be a priority.

Let me quickly share a true life story:-

Jackson took his fiancee to the village for the purpose of introducing the woman he intends to marry to his parent.

She politely rejected the drinking water his parent served her bcoz it was dirty (instead went to the car to get a bottled water).

Later during the day, due to the unhygienic condition of the toilet, she politely refused to use the toilet, instead held urine in her bladder.

His parents said the lady was rude & not a marriage material.

Diz is a lady who is neat, ambitious, humble, intelligent, & responsible.

She was disappointed in her fiance bcoz he is very rich but failed to transform the lives of his poor parents.

She cut off the affair on the basis of his irresponsibility & wickedness.

Many men fall under this category.

You buy iPhone 8 for girlfriend but can’t give your parents N50,000.

IPOB - Obiano Did Not Reach Constitutional One-Quarter of Registered Voters

If anything will prevail in Nigeria; it is illegality and total negligence of their very constitution; Anambra state experienced a total election boycott whilst there are reports that figures were bloated to help the situation, yet it could not meet satisfactory level. The election is expected to have a run off but that would be a story for another day.



The mouthwatering Anambra state election has come and gone but one thing will remain in our memories; this is a year a Governor emerged with 1 single (hundred) figure. The poll was peaceful which further defines the peaceful approach of IPOB. The only thing to take home is the blatant boycott; even though a winner will unconstitutionally emerge.

An INEC official who is a friend had told me that the government would not allow IPOB to destroy things in the country and that they would make do with what they have. In Anambra state; they have made do with what they have and that is clear fight for political survival.
The population density of Anambra state is more than five million whilst registered voters are more than two million (2.1 and fraction million people projected to vote) and a leading candidate won the election with One Hundred and Ninety Seven Thousand, Two Hundred and Fifty Six votes (197 256). Automatically; nearly two million registered voters boycotted the election.


The total people that allegedly voted were Three Hundred Thousand Voters; if calculation is made, we get less than 15% participation. In other words; less than 25 percent of registered voters came out to vote and this percentage summed up the friends and families of the 38 people jostling for the seat.
No matter how this goes; the election which is a practical referendum within the political sphere shows that the people are with IPOB on the quest to restoring Biafra. If 75% of active voters could suddenly boycott election to press home a demand; then it is time to consider Biafra referendum.
Let us have the mathematical breakdown:
Below are figures;
1. Total number of valid votes = 425 257
2. Total number of rejected votes = 16 985
3. Total number of votes cast = 442 242
4. Total number of registered voters = 1 770 127
5. Total number of accredited voters =465 891
Mathematically ;
Give that registered voters = 1 770 127
and votes casted = 442 242
Calculate;
i, percentage (%) votes cast.
ii, percentage (%) election boycott.
Solution:
i , percentage (%) votes cast
% votes cast = ( 442 242/1 770 127) x. (100/1)

WWE Survivor Series 2017 Results: Why AJ Styles Should Have Defeated Brock Lesnar

WWE Survivor Series 2017 was a golden opportunity for WWE to alter the status quo and have David slay Goliath, but AJ Styles couldn’t overcome Brock Lesnar. Over the past few years, “The Beast” has slayed everyone in his path, dismantling the likes of Dean Ambrose, John Cena and even Braun Strowman.



One could argue that it’s worked in keeping alive the aura of Lesnar, who certainly is one of WWE’s most must-see stars and reportedly is one of WWE’s biggest draws. But there is mounting evidence that the substantial financial investment WWE has made in Lesnar, well, simply isn’t worth it. Lesnar is WWE’s highest paid star, but there is little to suggest that his presence is a huge difference maker

Donald Trump Says He Should Have Left UCLA Players Jailed In China

President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday that he shouldn’t have helped orchestrate the release of three college basketball players from a Chinese jail after they were caught shoplifting last week.



President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday that he shouldn’t have helped orchestrate the release of three college basketball players from a Chinese jail after they were caught shoplifting last week.

The president accused LaVar Ball, the father of one of the players, of being “unaccepting” of Trump’s personal intervention in the matter.

Trump’s bitter remark comes just days after Ball downplayed the president’s role in securing the release of his son, LiAngelo Ball, and his son’s UCLA teammates, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill.

“Everybody wants to make it seem like [Trump] helped me out,” the elder Ball told ESPN on Friday. “I’ve seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses. My son has built up enough character that one bad decision doesn’t define him.”

The three players returned to Los Angeles on Tuesday after being accused of shoplifting from high-end stores during a trip to China. UCLA has suspended them from the team indefinitely.

On Wednesday, Trump slammed the players for not thanking him for his help, tweeting that they could have spent 10 years in jail. Hours later, the players apologized for their actions and expressed gratitude to Trump.

“I’m a young man, however, it’s not an excuse for making a really stupid decision,” the younger Ball said. “I don’t feel sorry for myself and I’ve learned my lesson from this big mistake and I’m 110 percent sure that I will not make a bad decision like this again.”

The dead of a notorious killer - Charles Manson

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday after nearly a half-century in prison. He was 83.



Manson, whose name to this day is synonymous with unspeakable violence and madness, died at 8:13 p.m. of natural causes at a Kern County hospital, according to a California Department of Corrections statement.

Michele Hanisee, president of the Association of Deputy District Attorneys, reacted to the death by quoting the late Vincent Bugliosi, the Los Angeles prosecutor who put Manson behind bars. Bugliosi said: "Manson was an evil, sophisticated con man with twisted and warped moral values."

"Today, Manson's victims are the ones who should be remembered and mourned on the occasion of his death," Hanisee said.

California Corrections spokeswoman Vicky Waters said it's "to be determined" what happens to Manson's body. Prison officials previously said Manson had no known next of kin and state law says that if no relative or legal representative surfaces within 10 days, then it's up to the department to determine whether the body is cremated or buried.

It's not known if Manson requested funeral services of any sort. It's also unclear what happens to his property, which is said to include artwork and at least two guitars. State law says the department must maintain his property for up to a year in anticipation there might be legal battles over who can make a legitimate claim to it.

A petty criminal who had been in and out of jail since childhood, the charismatic, guru-like Manson surrounded himself in the 1960s with runaways and other lost souls and then sent his disciples to butcher some of L.A.'s rich and famous in what prosecutors said was a bid to trigger a race war — an idea he got from a twisted reading of the Beatles song "Helter Skelter."

The slayings horrified the world and, together with the deadly violence that erupted later in 1969 during a Rolling Stones concert at California's Altamont Speedway, exposed the dangerous, drugged-out underside of the counterculture movement and seemed to mark the death of the era of peace and love.

Despite the overwhelming evidence against him, Manson maintained during his tumultuous trial in 1970 that he was innocent and that society itself was guilty.

"These children that come at you with knives, they are your children. You taught them; I didn't teach them. I just tried to help them stand up," he said in a courtroom soliloquy.

Linda Deutsch, the longtime courts reporter for The Associated Press who covered the Manson case, said he "left a legacy of evil and hate and murder."

"He was able to take young people who were impressionable and convince them he had the answer to everything and he turned them into killers," she said. "It was beyond anything we had ever seen before in this country."

The Manson Family, as his followers were called, slaughtered five of its victims on Aug. 9, 1969, at Tate's home: the actress, who was 8½ months pregnant, coffee heiress Abigail Folger, celebrity hairdresser Jay Sebring, Polish movie director Voityck Frykowski and Steven Parent, a friend of the estate's caretaker. Tate's husband, "Rosemary's Baby" director Roman Polanski, was out of the country at the time.

The next night, a wealthy grocer and his wife, Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, were stabbed to death in their home across town.

The killers scrawled such phrases as "Pigs" and "Healter Skelter" (sic) in blood at the crime scenes.

Three months later, a Manson follower was jailed on an unrelated charge and told a cellmate about the bloodbath, leading to the cult leader's arrest.

In the annals of American crime, Manson became the embodiment of evil, a short, shaggy-haired, bearded figure with a demonic stare and an "X'' — later turned into a swastika — carved into his forehead.

"Many people I know in Los Angeles believe that the Sixties ended abruptly on August 9, 1969," author Joan Didion wrote in her 1979 book "The White Album."

After a trial that lasted nearly a year, Manson and three followers — Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel and Leslie Van Houten — were found guilty of murder and sentenced to death. Another defendant, Charles "Tex" Watson, was convicted later. All were spared execution and given life sentences after the California Supreme Court struck down the death penalty in 1972.

Atkins died behind bars in 2009. Krenwinkel, Van Houten and Watson remain in prison.

Another Manson devotee, Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme, tried to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975, but her gun jammed. She served 34 years in prison.

Manson was born in Cincinnati on Nov. 12, 1934, to a teenager, possibly a prostitute, and was in reform school by the time he was 8. After serving a 10-year sentence for check forgery in the 1960s, Manson was said to have pleaded with authorities not to release him because he considered prison home.

"My father is the jailhouse. My father is your system," he would later say in a monologue on the witness stand. "I am only what you made me. I am only a reflection of you."

He was set free in San Francisco during the heyday of the hippie movement in the city's Haight-Ashbury section, and though he was in his mid-30s by then, he began collecting followers — mostly women — who likened him to Jesus Christ. Most were teenagers; many came from good homes but were at odds with their parents.

The "family" eventually established a commune-like base at the Spahn Ranch, a ramshackle former movie location outside Los Angeles, where Manson manipulated his followers with drugs, supervised orgies and subjected them to bizarre lectures.

Phone Unlocking Guild For All Carriers - Latest Method

Free yourself! How to unlock a phone from the icy hands of your wireless carrier . Your two-year contract is finally up, and you want to save some money by bringing your phone to a carrier with lower rates. Sadly, odds are that your phone is locked to your carrier, which prevents you from jumping ship and using your phone on another network.



Thankfully, legislation and the FCC made the process of unlocking your phone easier than ever. More importantly, it superseded an earlier decision made by the Library of Congress that interpreted cell phone unlocking as a violation of copyright (a ruling that actually saw phone unlocking rise in popularity). Cell phone unlocking, in other words, is legally permissible.

Just because unlocking your phone is legal doesn’t necessarily mean it’s easy to do, though. To that end, let’s dive into how to unlock a phone and break free of your two-year cycle with your carrier.

RATED TECH UPDATE

What you’ll need


Before you set your mind on unlocking your phone, you’ll need to keep in mind that doing so isn’t a fast process by any stretch of the imagination. Unlocking your phone can take several phone calls and hours of work. In addition, unlocking your phone before you leave your current carrier would be wise, as the incentive to help you through the process won’t be as great.

With that in mind, there are a few nuggets of information you’ll need:
  • The account holder’s name and account number
  • IMEI of your device
  • Your phone number
  • The account holder’s social security number or password
  • A finished contract and/or device payment plan
  • Overseas deployment papers, if the nature of your inquiry involves you being in the military and wanting to unlock your phone before your contract is up

Now that you have that information by your side, let’s see how each carrier handles unlocking your phone.

Unlocking a Verizon phone

Even though Verizon uses CDMA instead of GSM, most of Big Red’s devices come with an unlocked SIM card slot. According to Verizon, its 4G LTE devices aren’t locked, and, if you want to bring one of them to another carrier, there is no code you need to rejig the phone’s radios for other networks.
Even though SIM-equipped Verizon phones can be used on AT&T, T-Mobile, or other GSM carriers, the phone will need to have roaming GSM radios in order to make phone calls and send texts in the United States. While most recent Verizon handsets will work just fine on American GSM bands, your mileage will vary when it comes to LTE support.

Verizon doesn’t have an online unlock request, but you can call 800-711-8300 and request a SIM unlock.

he procedure’s a bit different for postpaid 3G devices on Verizon’s network. Most aren’t locked, but require that you enter a code — either “000000” or “123456” — to enable third-party cellular compatibility. Verizon’s specially branded World Devices, on the other hand, can’t be unlocked without the assistance at the request of a store tech, which you can request by dialing the company’s support line at 800-922-0204.
Unlocking a prepaid device can get a bit dicier. A vast majority of the prepaid 3G phones on Verizon can be unlocked with the code “000000” or “123456,” but Verizon’s off-the-shelf Phone-in-the-Box Prepaid handsets are locked into the network for 12 months after activation. And, as with Verizon’s World Phones, you have to call Verizon support at 888-294-6804 in order to start the process.

Unlocking an AT&T phone

The process on how to unlock a phone from AT&T is a bit more complicated than with Verizon – indeed, you’ll need to jump through a few more hoops with AT&T than you do with Verizon.
Here’s the checklist of prerequisites you’ll need to meet in order to unlock your AT&T handset:
  1. You must be a current or former AT&T subscriber.
  2. The device in question must be from AT&T.
  3. It must not have been reported lost or stolen.
  4. It must be attached to an account with “good standing” — i.e., one not associated with fraudulent activity.
  5. It must not be active on a different AT&T customer’s account.
  6. It must have been active for at least 60 days with “no past due or unpaid balance.”
  7. If you’ve upgraded early, you must wait for the 14 days “buyer’s remorse” period to pass before unlocking your old phone.
Unlike Verizon, AT&T offers an unlock request form you can fill out online. After submitting it, you’ll have 24 hours to click the link within the confirmation email sent to you. After about two business days, AT&T will send instructions for unlocking your device via email. AT&T no longer specify a hard unlock limit per year, as was previously the case – instead, the company crack down on individual cases. But unless you’re sending a hundred unlock requests a month, you shouldn’t need to worry.

Apple’s iPhones, however, don’t need an unlock code. Instead, after receiving the email specifying that your unlock request was approved, remove your AT&T SIM card and insert the SIM for your new carrier to begin the setup process.
In the case of prepaid devices (anything on AT&T Prepaid/GoPhone), AT&T also requires that they’ve been active for at least six months. The network offers limited unlock support via its support line, 800-331-0500, but doesn’t officially unlock handsets over the phone.

Unlocking a T-Mobile phone

There are several things to keep in mind if you want to unlock your T-Mobile phone:
  1. It must be a device from T-Mobile.
  2. It must not have been reported lost, stolen, or blocked.
  3. It must be attached to an account that has not been canceled, and is in “good standing.”
  4. It must have been active at least 40 days on the requesting line.
  5. If the device is on a service contract, at least 18 consecutive monthly payments must have been made.
  6. If using T-Mobile’s Equipment Installment Plan, or if your phone is leased through JUMP! On Demand, all payments must be made and the device must be fully paid for.
  7. You’ve made fewer than two unlock requests, per line, in a single year.
  8. T-Mobile may request to see proof of purchase.

World first human head transplant has been successfully carried out

Head Transplants: Sergio Canavero Is About to Perform the First Human Surgery—and There’s Nothing to Stop Him

‘And that is the final step for the formal head transplant for a medical condition which is imminent.’

Professor Sergio Canavero said earlier this year that his team had successfully repaired severed spinal cords in rats – a key step towards a successful transplant.

The team severed the spinal cords of rats, then treated them with polyethylene glycol to seal and repair damaged spinal cord nerve cells.

Within a month, the rats had recovered some movement – and two returned to a state that was ‘basically normal’.

Canavero has previously admitted, ‘The final goal is immortality.’

He says that there has aready been interest from ultra-rich patients seeking to extend their lives by grafting ageing heads onto fresh, young bodies.

Dr Canavero said last year, ‘You bet – there are a few funds working on prolonging life expectancy, and they are well-funded.’

Stop It: Drinking, Smoking Takes Toll on Looks (You look older than you are)

Don't want to look old before your time?

A new study suggests that heavy drinking and smoking -- besides posing serious health risks -- make people look older than they actually are.



The research tracked more than 11,500 Danish adults, aged 21 to 93, for an average of nearly 12 years. Women consumed, on average, 2.6 alcoholic drinks a week, and men consumed 11.4 drinks a week. Smokers included 57 percent of the women and 67 percent of the men.

Heavy drinking and smoking were associated with visible signs of physical aging and people looking older than their age.

Specifically, signs of aging included earlobe creases; a grayish opaque ring around the cornea of both eyes; and yellow-orange plaques on the eyelids.

Light to moderate drinking was not linked with visible premature aging, the researchers said.

The study was published online Nov. 15 in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health.

The researchers noted that this was an observational study, so it wasn't possible to make firm conclusions about cause and effect. They also pointed out that they were unable to account for any effects of stress, which is associated with both heart disease risk, smoking and heavy drinking.

CDC Wants America to Eat Its Fruits & Veggies None

Fruits and vegetables can be delicious and nutritious -- but too many Americans are still passing them by, a new report finds.

Just 9 percent of adults eat enough vegetables and only 12 percent get the recommended amount of fruit daily, according to a new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.



Vitamins, minerals, fiber and other good stuff in fruits and vegetables can help ward off heart disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers and obesity.

But just one in 10 adults is eating more fruits and vegetables than recommended in the government's 2015-2020 dietary guidelines.

How much is enough? One-and-a-half to two cups of fruit, or its equivalent, and two to three cups of vegetables daily.

Men fare worse than women on the fruits-and-veggies scorecard. And by age, young adults, aged 18 to 30, are less inclined to eat their greens, broccoli and bananas than older folks.

"Continued efforts are needed to identify and address barriers to fruit and vegetable consumption," wrote researchers led by Seung Hee Lee-Kwan, of the CDC's National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion.

High cost and limited availability may prevent some Americans from following the guidelines. Also, the misperception that vegetables and fruits require extra prep time could put some people off, the study authors said.

Actually, for vegetables, often the simplest preparation is the best, a New York registered dietitian said.

"There are few vegetables that you can't cut up, drizzle with olive oil, season with a little salt and herbs, and roast in an oven or toaster-oven," said Stephanie Schiff, of Northwell Health's Huntington Hospital. "They will be delicious."

For the new report, the CDC used data from a 2015 national survey to update 2013 findings. Participants were asked how many times in the previous month they ate 100-percent fruit juice; whole fruit; dried beans; dark green vegetables; orange vegetables; and other vegetables.

States reported significant differences, with fruit intake at a low of 7 percent in West Virginia and a high of almost 16 percent in Washington, D.C. Vegetable consumption was even lower -- ranging from about 6 percent in West Virginia to 12 percent in Alaska.

All socioeconomic groups scored poorly. However, the wealthiest Americans were more likely than others to meet vegetable requirements, the investigators found.

Schiff said buying fruits and vegetables in season -- like apples in the fall -- can cut costs. "And if fresh fruits and vegetables aren't available, frozen or canned can be just as good," she said.

"Frozen vegetables are picked at their peak ripeness, and are a wonderful option," said Schiff, who wasn't involved in the research.

By eating fruits and vegetables in different colors, especially dark colors, you can take full advantage of the antioxidants plants have to offer, she noted. Antioxidants can protect cells and help ward off conditions such as heart disease and cancer, she added.

Heather Seid, clinical nutrition manager at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, called fruits and vegetables "miraculous foods that impact the body from the inside out." Besides protecting you from disease, they contribute to healthy skin, hair and nails, she explained.

"Fruits and vegetables are incredibly versatile," Seid said. "You don't have to eat steamed veggies or raw fruit to get the benefits -- be creative!"

Be Careful - Air pollution exposure in early pregnancy leads to miscarriage, Suggests From WB study

Ozone is a highly reactive form of oxygen that is a primary constituent of urban smog.

What

Exposure to common air pollutants, such as ozone and fine particles, may increase the risk of early pregnancy loss, according to a study conducted by the National Institutes of Health. The study appears in the journal Fertility and Sterility.



Ozone is a highly reactive form of oxygen that is a primary constituent of urban smog. Researchers followed 501 couples attempting to conceive between 2005 and 2009 in Michigan and Texas. The investigators estimated the couples’ exposures to ozone based on pollution levels in their residential communities. Of the 343 couples who achieved pregnancy, 97 (28 percent) experienced an early pregnancy loss — all before 18 weeks. Couples with higher exposure to ozone were 12 percent more likely to experience an early pregnancy loss, whereas couples exposed to particulate matter (link is external) (small particles and droplets in the air) were 13 percent more likely to experience a loss.

Doing Better at Avoiding Eye Disease of Aging (Boomers)

Macular degeneration is a major cause of vision loss in older Americans. But new research shows that baby boomers are somehow avoiding the illness at higher rates than their parents did.



Why the improvement? The researchers aren't sure, but say that lowered rates of heart disease -- long tied to poorer eye health -- may be one reason.

In any case, "aging baby boomers [born between 1946 and 1964] may experience better retinal health at older ages than did previous generations," concluded a team led by Karen Cruickshanks, of the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Eye experts welcomed the findings.

"This suggests that those born in newer generations are possibly living healthier lifestyles, and that this may account for overall better health in later years," said Dr. Jules Winokur, an ophthalmologist at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital in New York City.

He read the findings, which were published Nov. 16 in the journal JAMA Ophthalmology.

In the study, Cruickshanks' team tracked the eye health of more than 4,800 Wisconsin residents. This included people who were older than 43 when the study started in the late 1980s, as well as their "Generation X" kids.

The researchers tracked the number of new cases of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) that emerged over a five-year span.

The result? "The five-year risk for AMD declined by generation throughout the 20th century," Cruickshanks and her colleagues reported.

The decline has been significant: While nearly 9 percent of people born between 1901 and 1924 (the "Greatest Generation") developed the eye illness, that dropped to just 1 percent of baby boomers -- and so far macular degeneration has only hit 0.3 percent of Gen Xers.

Biafra: Why I cannot produce Kanu for trial, Buratai tells court

…says soldiers tracked truck load of arms, ammunitions to IPOB leader’s house By Ikechukwu Nnochiri ABUJA – The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, on Thursday, prayed the Federal High Court in Abuja to dismiss a suit seeking to compel him to produce the ‘missing’ leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu.
 Why I cannot produce Kanu for trial, Buratai tells court



says soldiers tracked truck load of arms, ammunitions to IPOB leader’s house By Ikechukwu Nnochiri ABUJA – The Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, on Thursday, prayed the Federal High Court in Abuja to dismiss a suit seeking to compel him to produce the ‘missing’ leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu.

A team of lawyers representing the embattled IPOB leader had in the suit, prayed the court to order Buratai to produce their client either dead or alive.

The lawyers who were led by Mr Ifeanyi Ejiofor, told the court that they have not seen or heard from their client since September 14 when the Nigerian Army invaded his house “on a murderous raid, where life and mortar bullets were fired on unarmed and defenceless populace, leaving 28 persons dead and abducting many”. Pursuant to section 40 of the Federal High Court Act, F12, LFN 2005 and section 6(6) (1) (4) of the 1999 constitution, as amended, Kanu’s lawyers applied for “an order of Habeas Corpus ad subjiciendum, commanding the Respondent (Buratai), to produce the Applicant in Court”. 

However, in a counter-affidavit he filed in opposition to the suit, Buratai told the court that Kanu was never in custody of the Nigeria Army. He maintained that contrary to claims in the suit, soldiers who were deployed to the South-East for ‘Operation Python Dance II, did not have any contact whatsoever with Kanu on September 12 or 14, or anytime thereafter as alleged. The Chief of Army Staff told the court that the Nigerian Army did not at any time arrest or take Kanu into custody within the period the military operation lasted, even as he denied allegation that soldiers invaded the IPOB leader’s house in Afara-Ukwu Ibeku, Umuahia, Abia State.

 A colonel attached to the Chief of Army’s office in the Army Headquarters, Abuja, Col. A.A Yusuf, who deposed to the counter-affidavit on behalf of Buratai, said the alleged invasion of Kanu’s house was totally false. However, the Army boss told the court that his men only chased a truck he said was laden with arms and explosives of different kinds, into a compound he said was later discovered to belong to Kanu and his father. The counter-affidavit read in part, “That the applicant (Kanu) is not and has never been in his custody or in the custody of any person, officer or institution receiving instruction directly or indirectly from him. “That the applicant was not at any time whatsoever arrested, taken into custody or detained by the Officers and men of the Nigerian Army.

 “That the officers and men of the Nigerian Army did not have any contact whatsoever or confrontation or any operational engagement with the applicant on September 12 or 14, 20l7 or any other date thereafter, contrary to the allegations in the affidavit in support of the application. “That the allegation of invasion of the South-Eastern part of Nigeria by officers and men of the Nigerian Army, especially the applicant’s home and or residence is totally false.” He told the court that during “a peaceful movement” that formed part of Operation Python Dance II, soldiers, on September 14, pursued a truck loaded with arms and ammunition into a compound which was identified in the suit as jointly owned by Kanu and his father. He alleged that the fleeing truck and its occupants ran over Army barricade and defied soldiers’ order stopping them to be searched. Buratai insisted that soldiers that chased the truck into Kanu’s house did not fire any shot, saying it was the occupants of the fleeing truck that deliberately ignited the ammunition they were carrying. “That while on a peaceful movement on the said September 14, 2017, the soldiers randomly conducted stop-and-search operations as are necessary and it was during one of such exercises in Umuahia, Abia State, that it flagged down a truck, which as it turned out later, was loaded with arms and ammunitions of varying degrees and descriptions. “Rather than comply with the stop order, the driver and other occupants of the truck recklessly ran over the barricade mounted on the road by the soldiers and sped off, whereupon the soldiers at the point gave a hot chase and called for reinforcement to enable them pursue and arrest the fleeing vehicle. The soldiers did not fire any shot at the fleeing truck in order to prevent the loss of lives. “That the truck loaded with the arms and ammunition was pursued into a compound which has now been described in this application as belonging to and under the control of the applicant (Kanu) and his father. “That it was the legitimate attempt by the officers and men of the Nigerian Army to arrest the fleeing occupants of the truck and impound the truck that precipitated the deliberate igniting of the ammunition in the truck by persons now believed to be IPOB members. “That the act of the IPOB members resulted in sporadic explosions within the said applicant’s compound”, the affidavit further stated.
