Fresno State professor under fire for celebrating death of Barbara Bush

Fresno State University is distancing the school from a professor who celebrated the death of former first lady Barbara Bush as it reviews the matter, officials said Wednesday.

“Randa Jarrar, a Fresno State English professor, made deeply disrespectful statements on her personal Twitter account,” Lynnette Zelezny, vice president of academic affairs at Fresno State, told reporters at a press briefing. “Understandably, many people are very concerned and upset about the nature of Professor Jarrar’s personal comments. Please know the university is taking this matter very seriously and the incident is under review.”



Zelezny declined to say whether the school intends to fire Jarrar.

“The university is a public institution and must follow certain specific procedures in addressing personnel matters,” she said.

According to Zelezny, Jarrar had taken a personal leave of absence and was not teaching classes this semester. Jarrar did not immediately return a request for comment.

On Tuesday night after news of Bush’s passing broke, Jarrar took to Twitter, apparently angry about the outpouring of tributes to the former first lady.

“Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal,” Jarrar tweeted. “F*** outta here with your nice words,” she wrote.

“I’m happy the witch is dead,” Jarrar continued. “Can’t wait for the rest of her family to fall to their demise the way 1.5 million iraqis have.”

She added: “All the hate I’m getting ALMOST made me forget how happy I am that George W. Bush is probably really sad right now.”

Jarrar’s Twitter account was later set to private. But her tweets, captured in screengrabs, continued to fuel outrage.

In response to one critic who warned that her tweets could lead to her losing work, Jarrar bragged: “I work as a tenured professor. I make 100K a year doing that. I will never be fired.”

Fresno State President Joseph Castro issued a statement late Tuesday condemning Jarrar’s comments,  emphasizing that they were “made as a private citizen, not as a representative of Fresno State.”

Iran Threatens Israel With Revenge for Syria Airstrike That Killed Drone Commander

Iran has threatened to punish Israel for its airstrikes in Syria, after reports emerged that an unnamed Israeli military official had confirmed his country was behind an attack on an Iranian drone base in Homs province.



Bahram Ghassemi, the spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry, has now warned “Tel Aviv will be punished for its aggressive action. The occupying Zionist regime will, sooner or later, receive an appropriate response to its actions,” Haaretz reported.

Earlier this month, at least seven Iranian military personnel were killed in the missile strike on the T4 airfield, including Colonel Mehdi Dehghan, who led the drone unit. Syria, Iran and Russia all blamed Israeli forces.

Though Israel’s secretive military regularly refuses to either confirm or deny its actions, an unnamed military source admitted to the New York Times that his country was behind the strike. The source noted: “It was the first time we attacked live Iranian targets—both facilities and people.”

The source said the air base was targeted because it was serving as an Iranian drone command and control base. In February, Israel shot down an Iranian drone launched from Syria which it claimed was armed with explosives. The target of the drone is still unclear.

Israel responded to the drone incursion by launching missile strikes from F-16 warplanes against Iranian targets within Syria. One aircraft was shot down by Syrian air defense systems on its return to Israel.

After this month’s attack on the T4 base, Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman warned that Israel “will not allow Iranian entrenchment in Syria no matter the price to pay. We have no other option. Allowing Iran to strengthen itself in Syria is like accepting that the Iranians strangle us.”

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said his country will continue

Deputy Hezbollah leader Sheikh Naim Qassem echoed the threats from Tehran. He told pro-Syrian government television channel al-Maydeen: "The deliberate Israeli slaying of Iranians in the T4 base will have a response but we don’t know its nature or its details.”

Yossi Kuperwasser, former director-general of Israel's Ministry of Strategic Affairs, said that conflict between the two countries is not necessarily inevitable. In a press briefing, Kuperwasser told reporters that Israel and Iran are “in an ongoing armed conflict around Iranian aspiration to turn Syria into a base from which it can improve its capability to hit Israel.”

However, given the potency of Israel's military and intelligence services, Kuperwasser believes Iran will likely proceed with caution.

Abia State Teachers Embark On Strike Over 6 Months Unpaid Salaries

Teachers in Abia public schools have embarked on strike over six months salary arrears owed them by the state government.

This was even as the teachers accused the state leadership of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) of undermining the plight of members by always thwarting moves to ventilate their grievances.



The strike led to shutdown of all government-owned primary and secondary schools in Abia, which were supposed to have resumed on Monday, for the third term academic session.

A visit to some of the schools in Aba, including the Constitution Crescent Primary school, Abayi Girls Secondary School, Okigwe Road Primary and Secondary Schools, Girls Secondary Commercial School and Boys’ Technical College were all locked.

Some teachers, who were seen at venues for the ongoing West African Examination Council exams and who would not want their names in print, for fear of victimisation, told newsmen they are on strike.

“We are on strike, but, as you know, Abia State NUT strikes are usually funny. The leadership of NUT here is made up of people who betray the interest of members. By the time they finish their meeting with government and some money exchange hands, they’ll force us to go back to work; without our demands being met.

In Nigeria!! Cocoa Sector Anticipates A $290, 000 Tons Rebound For The 2017-18 Mid-crop

In Nigeria, the operators of cocoa sector forecast a 15% increase in production during the 2017/2018 mid-crop, which begins by April / May.

According to Savina Riman, head of Cocoa Association of Nigeria (CAN), adequate sunshine and good rainfall will help harvest 290,000 tons of cocoa. This contrasts with the 40% decline a year earlier, due to drought.



Regarding the main season, the official said that the dry weather that strikes the growing areas could cause the country to miss its production target of between 300,000 tons and 320,000 tons.

Let’s recall that Nigeria, which is the world sixth-largest cocoa supplier, produced 225, 000 tons of the beans during the 2016/2017 season.

7 Officials Stole Billions From NEMA – Presidency

Fresh facts have emerged on how seven government officials looted public funds from the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) running into billions of naira.The officials have already been suspended by the governing board of the agency and are being investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Com-mission (EFCC).



A top Presidency source yesterday confirmed to New Telegraph that a detailed report on how the officials misappropriated the funds has been submitted to President Muhammadu Buhari for consideration.

“The report submitted to the President shows the enormity of the crimes committed by the officials which comprised misappropriation of public funds, frivolous claims of personal emoluments and conspiracy with the other officials to short-change the Federal Government of due revenues, among others,” the Presidency stated.



On the former NEMA Director General, Mr. Sani Sidi, the report indicated that he maintained 20 different accounts in various banks. “EFCC found suspicious deposits amounting to $164,000 in his domiciliary account at Standard Chartered Bank alone, all within 18 months, i.e., between January 2014 and June 2015. “This almost averages out at $10,000 per month.

At the same time, he had up to £58,000 in his pound sterling account. He faces allegations of misappropriation of public funds, frivolous claims of personal emoluments and conspiracy with the other officials to shortchange the Federal Government of due revenues.”

On the suspended Director of Finance and Accounts, Akinbola Hakeem Gbolahan, the Presidency stated that he maintains many bank accounts with questionable transactions.

“EFCC, the report indicated, has noted in particular his account in GTBank where suspicious deposits were found, totalling N27,650,000 which is, in addition, the over £37,000 and $120,000 found in his domiciliary accounts, and his naira account which has several suspicious deposits in excess of N50 million, much of which flowed directly from NEMA,” the source stated.



For the Acting Director of Special Duties, Mr. Umesi Emenike, findings from the report revealed that funds meant for programmes and maintenance of the South- South zonal operations of NEMA under his supervision were paid directly into his personal accounts.

The government stated that 14 of the accounts have been discovered by EFCC in various banks, instead of the Zonal Office Account. “And he was found to have withdrawn freely in cash, by electronic transfers or through ATM machines, without any evidence of the money being used for NEMA activities,” the report said.

The report also shows that his subordinate, the Zonal Accountant, also made several cash lodgements into the personal account of Mr. Emenike. “About N238 million has so far been traced from NEMA directly to Mr. Emenike’s personal accounts which were placed in fixed deposits and used freely by the Ag. Director,” it said.



The report also revealed that the Director of Risk Reduction, Mr. Alhassan Nuhu, also maintained five bank accounts which were apparently used as conduits to receive and distribute money from NEMA’s coffers. According to the report, so far, Mr. Nuhu has not been able to give satisfactory account of the transactions, including NEMA’s funds moving through him to a company called Dambo Farms Limited.

John Cena and Nikki Bella End Engagement Weeks Before Destination Wedding

John Cena and Nikki Bella End Engagement Weeks Before Destination Wedding
People. 
John Cena and Nikki Bella have called off their nuptials just weeks before their wedding date.



“While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another,” the couple, who had been together for six years, said in a statement tweeted out by Bella. “We ask that you respect our privacy during this time in our lives.”

The professional wrestlers got engaged in April 2017 on live TV during a couple’s match. Their destination wedding was scheduled for May 5. (In October, they announced that they’d changed the date due their schedules.)

While promoting his movie Blockers, Cena, 40, told PEOPLE about how he already felt married to the 34-year-old Total Bellas reality star.

A post shared by Nikki Bella (@thenikkibella) on
‘People come up to me and say, ‘I love watching your wife on television.’ And I love that, so that happens to me 10 times before it would be a, ‘Yo man I love your work.’ It’s always, ‘I love watching your wife on television,’” he said, adding that he wished the two had tied the knot “yesterday.”

“I’m already ready to go there and it sounds nice hearing it,” he said of fans calling Bella his wife. “I know that we will have a wonderful future together because I love the way that sounds.”

New Zealand regain their crown as kings of Commonwealth rugby sevens

New Zealand started the game in blistering fashion, Etene Nanai-Setro producing the first try of the game, with a powerful surge to break through the Fijian line.
The 18-year-old Nanai-Setro, who is of Fijian descent, produced a superb performance showing why so many have him pegged as a player with a big future.
Regan Ware then created a second try for New Zealand with some individual magic to put them 14-0 ahead.



New Zealand flew out of the blocks, scoring two tries in quick succession in the first half.
Fiji have lit up this sevens tournament with some dazzling displays, notably with wins over Wales and reigning champions South Africa in the semifinals.

But with the game running away from this big and physcial Fiji side, tempers started to flare and Sevuloni Mocenecagi and New Zealand's Sam Dixon were involved in a heated exchange.
Mocenecagi then flew into Dixon with a high tackle, leaving the New Zealander in a crumpled heap on the ground and in need of medical attention.

The Commonwealth Games is supposed to be the "Friendly Games" but this was anything but. The New Zealand bench was up and the players were furious.



Regan Ware breaks through a Fijian tackle to score New Zealand's second try of the final.
However, the referee adjudged that Mocenecagi had first made contact with Dixon's chest and produced a yellow rather than a red card.
With Mocenecagi languishing in the sin bin, New Zealand looked to have converted a third try with just seconds remaining in the first half, but after reviewing the incident the video ref decided that Ware had spilled the ball.

Mocenecagi was still off the field when play resumed but you wouldn't have noticed as Fiji started the second half on top and only a brilliant saving tackle from All Black captain Scott Curry prevented the Fijians from getting a try back.
"Scott Curry's tackle on the far side [to stop a Fiji try] was unbelievable. He made a similar one yesterday [Saturday]. Your defense always shows how tight you are as a group and I think that shone through tonight," New Zealand coach Clark Laidlaw told New Zealand website Stuff.co.nz.
The tackle would set the tone for the second half with New Zealand putting on a defensive masterclass.



New Zealand captain Scott Curry rises high in a lineout.
"It's desire. We've spent a lot of time working off the field as a group, getting close. The last couple of weeks has brought us even closer," Laidlaw said.
"That's probably the part I'm even more proud of, how close we've got as a group, and it showed in the defense."
In possession New Zealand used every tactic available to run down the clock, which was not always popular with the Australian crowd but was effective game management.
And every time Fiji looked set to break the line and race through to score a try, there would be a New Zealander to make the tackle.



New Zealand men and women's team pose with their gold medals following their wins.
In the bronze medal match earlier England came from behind to beat South Africa 21-14.

Policeman Allegedly Kills Pregnant Teenager In Benue

Officers of the Nigeria Police Mobile unit deployed to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp in Daudu, Guma Local Government Area of Benue State on Saturday shot dead a pregnant displaced teenager, simply identified as Queen Zoho, who stays in the camp.



New Telegraph newspaper reports that she was killed during a melee that arose from an argument between youths of the area and the policemen.

The deceased was reportedly shot alongside two other men currently in critical condition.

It was gathered that the deceased had been staying in the IDPs camp since the outbreak of the farmers/herdsmen crisis and has since not been able to return to her ancestral home as the Fulani insurgents have taken over their communities.

According to eye-witnesses, the killing which ignited serious tension within and outside the vicinity of the camp, started when a man identified as Ornyiev, conveying a passenger on his motorcycle to a village in Daudu for a wake keep was intercepted by the Mobile Policemen at a roadblock they had mounted.

“On arriving at the roadblock, Ornyiev was flagged down by the Mopol who seized his motorcycle. He (Ornyiev) then called his district head on the telephone to intimate him about what had happened on his way to the burial.

“The district head swiftly sent words that the officers should please pardon the cyclist and release the motorcycle to him.

Judge says torching victim can testify from beyond the grave at boyfriends trial for her murder

A woman who died after being set on fire by her boyfriend will testify at his murder trial from beyond the grave. Judy Malinowski, 33, died in August 2017, two years after being torched by her boyfriend Michael Slager outside a gas station near Columbus, Ohio, in June 2015 but recorded a video in hospital before she lost her fight for life.



 Slager goes on trial for her murder in July, and in a rare move, a judge has allowed the interview Malinowski gave from her hospital bed to be heard by the jury. The judge ruled Friday. The mother of two suffered burns to 80 percent of her body and clung to life in a hospital for two years. Slager was charged with assault and was due to go to trial in 2016. ...

Plurality of Democrats Now Say Trump, Not Obama, Is Responsible for U.S. Economy, Poll Finds

A plurality of Democrats have indicated that President Donald Trump—not his predecessor Barack Obama—is responsible for the current state of the country's economy, a tonal shift from earlier this year when top members of the party argued the economic conditions were still due to former President Barack Obama.

As of April 9, 46 percent of Democrats agreed that the United States economy was down to Trump, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released earlier this week. The results suggest the current occupier of the White House is getting more credit for the economy, although the view that the current state of the economy is healthy was not a uniform one.

In the poll, 51 percent of American voters said the economy was in "good" condition, while 27 percent thought the state of the economy was "not so good" and 12 percent thought it "poor." Just nine percent of participants in the survey felt that the economy was in "excellent" shape.

Trending: New Gmail Update: Leaks Show Self-Destructing Messages, Snooze Feature, Design Changes

In January, ahead of Trump's first State of the Union address, Democrats had gone on offense, anticipating that the president might take credit for the economy.

"Here are two words we won’t hear President Trump say tonight about the economy: ‘Thanks Obama,'" Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor hours before the speech. "President Trump was handed an already healthy economy by his predecessor."

Single mom supports teenage daughter by being paid to date

Single parenting has its challenges, and for Jordyn Smith, managing finances is one of the hardest. The mother, who does not receive child support, has held a variety of jobs — from serving as a cocktail waitress to being an exotic dancer — to offset the costs of raising her teenage daughter. Currently though, the Las Vegas, Nev. resident is unemployed — but she’s still raking in cash (albeit, in a rather unorthodox way).



Through a website called WhatsYourPrice, Smith is being paid to go on dates and maintain platonic relationships with men.

“The men will either send me an offer and I can counteroffer, or I’ll send them out an offer of like $150 to $200, and then they can counter or I can accept,” Smith explains to Yahoo Lifestyle of how the website works, an eBay-type service. “It’s just like a bidding thing. But I don’t do less than $100.”

And while the arrangement is fairly similar to Seeking Arrangement, which connects women with “sugar daddies” or even comparable to being a prostitute, Smith insists that this process is different because of the lack of pressure, and legality.

“I did sign up for the Sugardaddie website, and that was just garbage,” she explains. “It put a bit of a bad taste in my mouth, so I didn’t really have high expectations for WhatsYourPrice, to be honest. I was nervous because I didn’t want the men to expect anything. But I did point out on my profile that it would be no strings attached. I am good company, I am fun, but don’t expect anything out of this.”

Teen Gets Decades In Prison For Murder Of Someone Killed By A Cop

A judge on Thursday sentenced an Alabama teenager to 65 years in prison for a series of crimes, including murder, even though a police officer was the one who actually killed the victim.

Lakeith Smith, now 18, was convicted under the state’s accomplice liability law in March. Based on that law, a person can be convicted of murder if they were committing a crime with the deceased that led to the other person’s death, according to the Montgomery Advertiser. In Smith’s case, he was involved in burglaries alongside A’Donte Washington, 16, when a police officer shot and killed Washington in 2015.



In February 2015, both Smith and Washington were part of a group of five who broke into two houses in Millbrook, Alabama, the Advertiser reports. When police responded to the scene, the two sides exchanged gunfire. Body camera footage played in court showed Washington running towards an officer pointing a gun at him. The officer then shot and killed Washington.

Circuit Judge Sibley Reynolds sentenced Smith to 65 years in prison on Thursday — 30 years for a felony murder, 15 for burglary and two 10-year sentences for theft.

“The officer shot A’donte, not Lakeith Smith,” said Smith’s attorney Jennifer Holton during the trial, as per USA Today. “Lakeith was a 15-year-old child, scared to death. He did not participate in the act that caused the death of A’donte. He never shot anybody.”

This Is What It is Like To Be Married To An Instagram Influencer

Behind every great Instagram influencer is an Instagram spouse with the photo-taking patience of a saint. (And inevitably, very little free space on their phone. True love is deleting a few apps to make room for more photos of your S.O.)



What’s it like to be the person behind the camera? Instagram husbands (and one wife!) told Wakabia about loving someone who makes their living on social media.

It’s a full-time job. Literally.
For many Instagram spouses, it’s a full-time gig to work on a partner’s social pages and blogs. They’re the photographer behind the posts that draw in thousands of likes; sometimes, they’re also the “spouse-ager” running the business side of things.

That commitment makes sense, given how much money you can make off Instagram if you play your cards right. Sponsored and partnered posts are an especially lucrative deal, with some businesses paying high-profile influencers about $150,000 per post.

The decision to combine forces panned out well for Daniel and Jess Wang, a married couple who left their careers in finance three years ago to work exclusively on Jess’ blog and Instagram, Not Jess Fashion.

How Military Will Use $1bn Approved By Buhari To Fight Boko Haram – Buratai Reveals

The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, has revealed how the $1billion approved by President Muhammadu Buhari for the purchase of military equipment will be used.



Addressing journalists on Thursday at the Second Nigerian Army Procurement Seminar in Abuja, Buratai said the money will be utilised judiciously.

Recall that Buhari had approved the fund during a meeting with the Minister of Defence, Brigadier General Mansur Dan-Ali (rtd), and the service chiefs at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

The Army chief was optimistic that the money would boost the efforts of the military in the war against insurgency in the North East and other security issues affecting the country

According to Buratai, “Our capability is increased in terms of the platforms that would be procured, in terms of the further training that would be carried out.

“Once this equipment is procured, it means further consolidating on other areas where there are challenges so that the troops will be able to use this equipment and operate very efficiently to be able to defeat all those criminals.”

China says will fight back at any cost against U.S. trade tariffs

BEIJING/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - China warned on Friday it would fight back "at any cost" with fresh trade measures if the United States continues on its path of protectionism, hours after President Donald Trump threatened to slap an additional $100 billion in tariffs on Chinese goods.



In light of China's "unfair retaliation" against earlier U.S. trade actions, Trump upped the ante on Thursday by ordering U.S. officials to identify extra tariffs, escalating a high stakes tit-for-tat confrontation with potentially damaging consequences for the world's two biggest economies.

On Wednesday, China unveiled a list of 106 U.S. goods - from soybeans and whiskey to frozen beef and aircraft - targeted for tariffs, in a swift retaliatory move only hours after the Trump administration proposed duties on some 1,300 Chinese industrial, technology, transport and medical products.

Washington has called for the $50 billion in extra duties after it said a probe determined Chinese government policies are designed to transfer U.S. intellectual property to Chinese companies and allow them to seize leadership in key high-technology industries of the future.

Responding to Trump's latest comments, the Chinese commerce ministry reiterated that China was not afraid of a trade war even though it did not seek one, and accused the United States of provoking the conflict.

"If the United States disregards the objections of China and the international community and persists in unilateralism and trade protectionism, the Chinese side will follow through to the end, at any cost, and definitely fight back resolutely," a spokesperson was quoted as saying in a statement on the ministry's website.

The ministry has called for a media briefing on Friday night, in an unusual move on a public holiday.

Earlier in the day, Chinese state media had slammed Trump's threat of more trade action as "ridiculous".

"This latest intimidation reflects the deep arrogance of some American elites in their attitude towards China," the state-run Global Times said in an editorial.

While Beijing's claims that Washington is the aggressor and is spurring global protectionism, China's trading partners have complained for years that it abuses World Trade Organization rules and propagates unfair policies at home that lock foreign firms out of some sectors as domestic champions are being nurtured.

China has repeatedly vowed that it would open up sectors such as financial services.

President Xi Jinping next week is expected to unveil fresh measures on reform and his country's opening up at the high-profile Boao Forum, China's equivalent of Davos, in the southern island province of Hainan.

LINGERING CONCERNS

While China has projected an image of multilateralism and restraint amid the escalating trade dispute with the United States, Beijing has been swift to respond to Washington's rhetoric and actions.

So far, U.S. information technology products from mobile phones to personal computers have largely escaped the ire of Beijing, as well as telecoms equipment and aircraft larger than the equivalent of a Boeing 737.

Among the most affected by a trade war could be the U.S. technology sector, particularly chipmakers. The U.S. semiconductor sector relies on China for about a quarter of its revenue.

It also remains to be seen if the trade dispute would trigger a nationalistic travel backlash. When ties between Beijing and Seoul chilled, Chinese tourism to South Korea plummeted and Made-in-South Korea products were shunned by consumers in China.

On Chinese social media on Friday, among the most searched phrases were "China hasn't grown up afraid" and "China will follow through to the end."

Nightmare bacteria are trying to spread in the U.S., CDC says

Nightmare bacteria” with the power to resist most antibiotics are popping up across the U.S., but new, aggressive policies can help stop them from spreading, federal health officials said Tuesday.

A new program for testing suspect bacteria turned up unusual antibiotic-resistance genes 221 times in 2017, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. And 11 percent of people screened for these superbugs carried them, even though they had no symptoms, the CDC said.



“CDC’s study found several dangerous pathogens, hiding in plain sight, that can cause infections that are difficult or impossible to treat,” said the CDC’s Dr. Anne Schuchat. “While they are appearing all over the place, an aggressive approach can snuff them out.”

Antibiotic-resistant germs kill more than 23,000 Americans a year.

They evolve quickly, developing mutations that let them evade the effects of antibiotics. If they are not stopped fast, they spread. Worse, the antibiotic-resistant DNA can be carried in little cassettes of genetic material called plasmids that bacteria can slip in their entirety to one another and to other species of bacteria.

It’s already happened several times in the U.S. — and when one superbug gives new powers to a different superbug, the result can be an infection that is impossible to treat.

“Once antibiotic resistance spreads, it is harder to control—like a wildfire,” the CDC said in a statement.

Nigeria Unity Is Non-negotiable And Buhari Deserves A Second Term To Complete His Good Works – Orji Uzor Kalu

Former governor of Abia State, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, has identified as challenges facing Nigeria today, the scathing criticisms of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration by persons who when they were in power, never obeyed the law.



Kalu faulted Buhari’s critics, saying notwithstanding the cynical and vitriolic attacks against him, the president deserves a second term in office to complete his good projects for Nigeria.

He spoke on Tuesday at the Ake Palace of the Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo, in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, when he visited the monarch.

Kalu, who is the coordinator of National Movement for Re-election of Muhammadu Buhari, declared that the president has done well to merit another term of four years in office.

The ex – governor’s comments came barely 24 hours after former President Olusegun Obasanjo tongue – lashed Buhari-led government for allegedly being ineffective, incompetent and reeking of failure.

According to him, Buhari has unfinished job to do and needs another tenure to complete it thoroughly.

“The greatest challenge of our country is leaders not obeying the law. When they are leaders, they don’t want to obey the law; when they go out of leadership, they criticise everybody who wants to obey the law. This is the problem of the country.

“We have had leaders who disobeyed every law of the land. We’ve also had leaders who were reckless when they were leaders and when they go out, they call people all kinds of name. We have also seen leaders that have never seen anything good in other people’s leadership, they only know about themselves.

“So, we want to thank you for the support…I know you are close friend of President Muhammadu Buhari and I want you to maintain that friendship; don’t allow anybody to distract you whether people from here or from my area, stay in course.

“President Buhari has not finished the job he came to do. If God gives him good health and long life, he has not finished. He has to go for another four years to be able to finish.

“Despite people who are criticising and these people also took no criticism when they were in office. Despite people who are writing letters; these people we also wrote letters to them, they didn’t reply to our own letters,” Kalu said.

Kalu, who lauded his host for his sterling military career, numerous community services and contributions to nation-building, declared that Nigeria’s unity is non-negotiable.

He urged the Alake and members of the Egba Traditional Council not to relent in their support for the president.

British family dies in Florida car crash after watching SpaceX launch

A British family of four was killed in a car crash after leaving the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on Monday, authorities said.



Adam Stephenson, 30, his wife Maryanne Stephenson, 29, Brian Stephenson, 66, and Sheralyn Stephenson, 56, all from Bristol, were killed after a pickup truck crushed their white rented Mitsubishi sedan when making a turn, Titusville police said.

Authorities believe the family was leaving the Kennedy Space Center after watching Elon Musk’s SpaceX rocket launch.

James Walsh, 28, the truck’s driver, was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. It’s unclear if he’ll be charged.

The Stephensons were driving back to their rental home in Davenport when the 6 p.m. crash happened.

The GPS in the Mitsubishi instructed Adam Stephenson to make a U-turn at an intersection because of an earlier crash on State Road 407 — which was the family’s original path home, police said.

The crash remains under investigation.

Breaking !! Trump is becoming the backfire president

If you were Jeff Bezos, what would you do?

The Amazon (AMZN) CEO faces a new dilemma, since President Trump is now threatening punitive action against his company—and may have the power to follow through.

Trump argues (in a series of tweets) that Amazon gets a sweetheart deal with the US Postal Service, shipping products below cost, with taxpayers essentially subsidizing the deliveries.



That’s probably not true. The Postal Service’s contract with Amazon is private, so we can’t know for sure, but federal law requires the USPS to price package delivery at rates that are profitable. Package delivery is actually a bright spot for the Postal Service—an area of growth amid a long-term decline in regular mail. Instead of ripping off the USPS, Amazon is probably helping keep it alive.

Trump can’t just tear up Amazon’s contract with the USPS. But he could insist on tougher terms whenever the contract is up for renewal. He could also put regulatory barriers in the company’s way, even if courts might strike them down, which helps explain why Amazon’s stock has tanked since Trump started his latest tirade against the company.

So if you were Jeff Bezos, what would you do?

You’d probably explore options for reducing your exposure to Trump and the government he oversees. Amazon already plans to develop its own logistics business, with a pilot program due to start later this year. It might make sense to speed that up and go big, so that Amazon can deliver its own packages and free itself of political meddling relating to the Postal Service.

If it did, the Postal Service would lose one of its biggest customers, while gaining a tough new competitor in the (lousy) bargain. That could make the Service’s chronic financial woes even worse. But Trump doesn’t seem to care about the consequences of his actions—which is turning him into the backfire president.

Kaduna Monarch To Subjects: Dont Be Killed Like Fools… Defend Yourselves

Zubairu Gwari, emir of Birnin Gwari in Kaduna state, has asked his subjects to defend themselves against suspected bandits invading their communities.
One of the 23 local government areas in Kaduna, Birinin Gwari has recorded a high level of insecurity in recent times.

It was in the area that 11 soldiers were killed earlier in the month.

In an interview with Daily Trust , the first class traditional ruler said he asked his subjects not to “behave like fools” and get killed.

“A month ago, in one area called Anguwan Gajere, the bandits attacked a village, and the villagers fought back, in the process they killed more bandits than the people of the town,” he said.

“All of a sudden, we were told that the people who came were Fulani men, and Miyetti Allah was in the vanguard of protecting them. What we have been preaching to our people is that they should not sit down like fools and watch themselves and their families get killed. If you can do anything to protect yourselves, protect yourself. I will repeat it in front of anybody.

“We can’t be fools to wait for somebody that will not come. Nobody can stop me from telling my people to protect themselves.

Trump declares April $exual Assault Awareness month

Washington (AFP) - US President Donald Trump -- who has himself been repeatedly accused of s3xual misconduct -- on Friday designated April 2018 "National s3xual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month" amid a national debate over the issue.



"s3xual assault crimes remain tragically common in our society, and offenders too often evade accountability," said a proclamation from Trump released by the White House. "These heinous crimes are committed indiscriminately: in intimate relationships, in public spaces, and in the workplace."

"Too often, however, the victims of assault remain silent. They may fear retribution from their offender, lack faith in the justice system, or have difficulty confronting the pain associated with the traumatic experience," it continued.

"My administration is committed to raising awareness about s3xual assault and to empowering victims to identify perpetrators so that they can be held accountable."

At least 20 women have publicly accused Trump of engaging in s3xual assault or harassment prior to becoming president. The White House has maintained that the women are lying.

Lady Arrested As Buhari Visits Lagos For Trying To Use A Bridge Shut Down(Photos)

Earlier today, Nigerians were made to stand under the scorching sun and were also not allowed to use Pedestrian bridge because President Muhammadu is in Lagos. Major roads in the state were shut down – leaving motorists and road users stranded due to the president’s visit.

Meanwhile, Nigerians have condemned the virtual shutdown of Lagos due to the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari.

They also berated the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode-led government for shutting down the nation’s commercial hub.

Hell Does Not Exist – Pope

Pope Francis says hell – believed to be a place of condemnation for deceased sinners – does not exist.

The pontiff reportedly said this in an interview published by Daily La Repubblica, an Italian newspaper.



The interview was conducted by Eugenio Scalfari, a veteran Italian journalist and atheist who regularly muses about faith and religion, and enjoys access to the leader of the Catholic church.

“There is no hell where the souls of sinners suffer in eternity,” Scalfari quoted the pope to have said.

“After death, the souls of people who repent are pardoned by God and join in his contemplation. But those who do not repent, and therefore cannot be pardoned, disappear. Hell does not exist… what exists is the disappearance of sinful souls.”

But hours after the report was published, the Vatican issued a denial, saying comments attributed to the spiritual leader denying the existence of hell are a product of the journalist’s reconstruction of the pope’s remarks and not a faithful transcript of the pontiff’s real words.

The Vatican said the pope did receive Scalfari “in a private meeting” to exchange Easter greetings, but he did not “give him an interview”.

See As Russia Warns of New Cold War After Mass Expulsion of Diplomats

The West risks plunging the world into another Cold War because of its response to the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal, Russia’s ambassador to Australia warned.



In a show of unity, 23 nations expelled over 130 Russian diplomats and spies after the Russian double-agent Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, were attacked on British soil with a Moscow-made nerve agent called Novichok. Western allies blame the Russian state.

“What's happening is a well-orchestrated campaign...it's boorish behavior [by] the West and we would have to retaliate,” Russian Ambassador Grigory Logvinov told journalists in Canberra, according to Reuters.

"The anti-Russian campaign has no future...If the West would follow this line, I'm afraid we will be deeply in a Cold War situation,” Logvinov said.

Russia denies being behind the attempted murder of the Skripals on March 4. But the U.K. said its intelligence leads it to conclude that either the Russian government arranged the attempted assassination or was negligent in allowing Novichok to fall out of its control.

The pair were poisoned while out in the city of Salisbury, England, where Skripal lived. Skripal went to Britain in 2010 after he was released from a Russian prison in a spy swap deal with the U.S. The retired Russian military intelligence colonel was convicted in 2006 of spying for the British and sentenced to 13 years in prison.

The U.S. expelled 60 Russian diplomats and closed a consulate in Seattle after the Skripal incident, joining allies across the West taking similar steps.

“The United States takes this action in conjunction with our NATO allies and partners around the world in response to Russia’s use of a military-grade chemical weapon on the soil of the United Kingdom, the latest in its ongoing pattern of destabilizing activities around the world,” a White House spokesperson said, announcing the expulsions ordered by President Trump.

DMX faces the music: serenaded by judge, gets year in prison

NEW YORK (AP) — A judge heard a DMX rap song before adding his own lyrics to a court proceeding on Wednesday, ordering the rapper imprisoned for a year in a tax fraud case.



U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff took requests, accommodating DMX's desire to hear his autobiographical hit "Slippin'" before DMX faced the music over his admission of guilt. The judge called DMX's fraud a "brazen and blatant" crime that could not go unpunished.

The 47-year-old rapper, known to law enforcement and the courts as Earl Simmons, has been incarcerated since his bail was revoked in January. He sobbed during the proceeding as his lawyer Murray Richman recalled his nightmarish childhood.

"I never went to the level of tax evasion where I'd sit down and plot ... like a criminal in a comic book," DMX said when given an opportunity to address the court.

He said, at times getting choked up, that he "wasn't following the rules."

DMX, whose albums include "It's Dark And Hell Is Hot" and "Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood," recalled that the judge ordered him imprisoned in January for failing to obey bail restrictions that had allowed him to continue performing concerts while he received treatment for drug addictions.

"It woke me up," he said.

Before that, he said: "I was in a cloud. I wasn't thinking straight."

Richman said DMX, who has appeared in movies such as "Last Hour" and "Romeo Must Die," has been a model prisoner. Still, prosecutors sought five years in prison for him, citing a lengthy rap sheet and drugs.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Cooper said DMX engaged in tax fraud for six years after having paid taxes previously.
