PHOTO LEAKS: Female Student Of Covenant University Doing Things




This is what happens when ladies fail to live strictly to the rules of their environment. Winners Chapel, owners of Covenant University are a bunch of no-nonsense people. To school there, you must be above board. But this girl, Bisi, decided to take her twerking character from the streets into the university and unfortunately for her the video of her secret act has leaked with everything she's got on display.

Sadly, I heard Covenant University has expelled Bisi over the mess. What is she going to tell her parent?

'Nigeria's Mark Zuckerberg' puts tech into higher learning

In late 2012, Nigerian Gossy Ukanwoke launched <a href='http://bau.edu.ng/' target='_blank'>Beni American University</a>, the West African country's first private online university.
In late 2012, Nigerian Gossy Ukanwoke launched Beni American University, the West African country's first private online university.

(CNN) -- At 23, many people around the world are still at university -- at that age, Gossy Ukanwoke had already started one.

The young entrepreneur is the founder of Beni American University (BAU), Nigeria's first private online university. Launched in late 2012, the school allows students to access their classes at any time of the day with any internet-enabled device.

"We are providing executive programs for graduates who are looking for employment and want to build up their resumes, or managers who want to climb up the hierarchy of their companies," says Ukanwoke, now 25.

"We also have courses targeted at people who want to start their own business."

'Nigeria's Mark Zuckerberg'

Ukanwoke's idea to start BAU came from his previous online venture called Students Circle, an educational social networking site he'd launched while in university that allows learners to interact and access free resources from leading schools.

"When I created Students Circle in 2010," explains Ukanwoke, "I found out that ... many were looking for certificates, hoping that they could get something they could use to maybe find employment or get a promotion in the workplace.

"There was a need for a new institution to be created in Nigeria," adds Ukanwoke, who was once described by Forbes as "Nigeria's Mark Zuckerberg."

Now, some 18 months into his new business endeavor, Ukanwoke has hired 10 instructors and has about 200 students, with an average age of 26.

But the startup's journey so far has not been without challenges -- Nigerian laws require universities to have a physical campus so last year Ukanwoke went and bought land in the country's Benue State with the goal to build a private campus that could accommodate some 10,000 students.

The project is expected to launch next year, but in the meantime the web courses are up and running -- a 12 week online program can cost between $100 and $300. Among the courses offered are corporate diplomacy, global marketing, leadership and management, digital journalism, project management and entrepreneurship and innovation, which is the university's most popular class.

"It's good because I have four kids," says Chinenye Madukwe, one of BAU's students. "I have opportunity to work at the same time, because I have a small interior design outfit."

Oo Nwoye, another BAU student, says he enrolled "for the knowledge."

"It is just helpful for my business and that is the most important thing to me," he explains.

Education is key

A son of two teachers, Ukanwoke says he is driven by his passion to use technology to solve social problems.

"I grew up within the framework where education was put at a very high level of importance, and entrepreneurship is something that I always wanted to do," he says.

"Without education I don't think we can do any progress," he adds. "It's not just about getting a certificate -- education is about teaching people how to make a living and teaching people how to live; how to interact with others, how to lead their lives and make something out of themselves," continues Ukanwoke.

"With education comes discipline and we need a lot of discipline in Nigeria as well, so education is really important."

Ukanwoke relies mainly on social media to advertize but says that it's student referrals that are increasing BAU's enrollment.

"We still have a long way to go, we have a lot of work to do, a lot of policy wrangling too," he admits. "But it's a work in progress and we are quite happy with where we are."


The university offers a variety of courses, including corporate diplomacy, global marketing and digital journalism.

How Robbers Now Use ATM Cards To Enrich Themselves In Lagos


Photo: How Robbers Now Use ATM Cards To Enrich Themselves In Lagos

May we not fall victim of this, but there is now a new trend of how robbers rob innocent Lagosians at cash points. Here’s the gist; these robbers don’t rob Monday nights, Tuesday or Thursday nights, but Friday nights. What they do is this. Some of them stay around the bank, while one of them walks up to the person making the transaction and gently smile and show him or her a gun or a sharp object. In case you want to play funny, he quickly points at his other members and tells you to corporate or you risk wasting your life.  He will then ask you to confirm your pin and makes withdrawal while you are still there, and dispose you of other ATM cards on you, after their pins have also been confirmed. They make the daily maximum withdrawal from Friday to Sunday and the smart ones wake up very early Monday morning to also make another withdrawal before you get to the bank to lodge your complaints, if you don't make use of internet banking. This has been going on for a while now, but it’s getting more rampant weeks after weeks.

Church Fights Klint Da Drunk Over N250,000 Show Fee As Friends Claim He Would Have Been Bigger If Not For Video Games

Photo: Church Fights Klint Da Drunk Over N250,000 Show Fee As Friends Claim He Would Have Been Bigger If Not For Video Games

An Abuja based Church, Christos International Church is presently very bitter with comedian Klint Da Drunk for not showing up to anchor its empowerment programme after the church paid him N250,000 upfront. According to the church, Klint was given a part payment of N250,000 to anchor the said programme but failed to show up. The comedian later said the church gave him a wrong date of 23rd of March, 2014, instead of the 22nd of March, 2014 when the event held.

The church leaders however wondered why they would give him such a date, when they gave his other colleagues Frank Edwards and Asu Ekiye who were present the correct date.

On hearing this, Klint’s friends claim Klint would have gone far more than this in his career, if not for his unserious behaviour and love of video games. They said he prefers to play his games instead of honouring important meetings which can eventually earn him thousands of naira.

The church is however threatening to bring in the police if Klint does not refund the money.

D’banj Speaks About Finding Love And Kanye West… Threatens To Sue Uk Dailymail



Dbanj in an exclusive chat with Encomium magazine has revealed he has found love and will settle down in no time. He said a lot of you are now asking me when I will get married, but 2fase, Peter and Paul have all settled down. I will settle down he said. He also spoke about his relationship with Kanye West and his record label. Finally he revealed he will be suing Uk Dailymail soon because all they wrote about him being a womanizer and about his koko slang were all false. Find the interview after the cut.

When are you getting married?

I'm going to marry at the right time. Trust me. You guys are asking me when I'm getting married because Tuface has married. Peter (psquare) is married. Even Paul has also married. At God's appointed time, I will marry just as my friends are now getting married.

Have you found love?

Yes, I have found love

Who is the lucky girl?

I won't tell you (laughs)

What was the attraction?

I won't tell you anything about my private life until I marry (laughs)

There is this allegation by UK daily mail that you are a serial womanizer. The tabloid of records also claimed you are romancing US actress and model, Kenyan Moore. What is the story?

It is a rumour. The story has no substance. I'm even about going to sue UK daily mail for the defamation of character. I'm discussing with my legal team. They didn't hear from me. Everything they wrote is totally wrong. They defined Koko master wrongly. I think they wanted to talk about Kenyan Moore, who was a former Miss America, but they didn’t get their facts right. Everything they wrote was false .They are going to hear from my legal team, soon.

The story is that your deal with Kanye West has crumbled?

Kanye is now married....the truth about it is that we are now operating from different territories. How things work here is different from what is obtainable in the States. They cannot control what I do here because na here I don dey since. It has always been a mutual partnership.


10 Fascinating things that happen to your body when you're in love

http://www.highstreetmail.com/media/k2/items/cache/0b696b2d3db98632b11d787201b4394d_L.jpg


People often say that you'll just know when you're in love, but one thing's for sure: your body definitely knows when you're smitten. Check out the strange — and fun — ways your body reacts when you've got it bad.

Your brain activity changes instantly

Love at first sight may exist after all: falling in love activates about 12 regions in your brain, according to a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. The result? You can 'know' you're in love within a fifth of a second.

Your heart stops (OK, slows down)

Being in love affects your hormone levels, decreasing your blood pressure and heart rate.

You have trouble sleeping

In at least one study, love-struck participants reported losing about an hour's worth of sleep per night, according to the Journal of Adolescent Health. Why? Thinking about the object of your desire can literally keep you up at night.

Your aches and pains ease up

Love activates the same neural receptors in the brain as pain-soothing drugs, according to a study from Stanford University School of Medicine.

You become forgetful

When you're smitten with someone, your brain releases oxytocin (often thought of as the love hormone), which can impair memory. So that's why you've been so absent-minded lately.

Your jealous side comes out

Turns out, you can't help it if you get a little crazy when you see your S.O. talking to another woman: a recent study from Florida State University found that love can make a person overprotective of his or her partner.

You'll think everything tastes sweeter

Students in one study wrote about love, then sampled various foods and drinks. Regardless of what they tasted, they said everything had a sweet flavor, according to the American Psychological Association.

You become easily distracted

Since you're constantly thinking about your partner, being in love can hurt your ability to concentrate and focus on specific tasks. And that's not just personal experience talking — a study published in the journal Motivation and Emotion proved it.

Your voice gets higher

When women are speaking to men they find attractive, they often speak with a higher pitch, according to a study published in the Journal of Evolutionary Psychology.

Your bones become stronger

Researchers found a correlation between happily married couples and better bone health. Hey, we'll take it!

Historians identify 'Holy Grail' as goblet in Spanish museum, new book says

Margarita Torres and Jose Manuel Ortega del Rio - authors of the book 'Kings of the Grail' - claim the much sought-after cup used by Jesus Christ at the Last Supper was given as a gift to Spanish King Fernando I by a Muslim ruler. The historians said they identified the goblet after a three-year investigation.

(USE FIRST) Ending the quest: This cup at a church in northern Spain is the Holy Grail, say historians and book authors Margarita Torres and Jose Manuel Ortega del Rio. The artifact is currently not on display as San Isidro Basilica looks to find a larger space to keep it.

Two historians claim the search for the Holy Grail is over.

The famous cup used by Jesus Christ during the Last Supper was identified in a book written by Margarita Torres Jose Manuel Ortega del Rio, titled "Kings of the Grail" and published last week, as the jewel-encrusted goblet on display at the San Isidro Basilica in the northwestern Spanish city of Leon.

News of the discovery caused masses of people to flock to the historic church to view the precious chalice - forcing the operators of the museum to pull the piece from the exhibit, according to French news agency Agence France-Presse.

The museum's director told AFP that they were looking for space large enough to accommodate the crowds.

"It was in a very small room where it was not possible to admire it to the full," Raquel Jaen told the agency.

There are more than 200 golden cups that have been thought to be the one used during the Last Supper, but Torres and del Rio identified the Spanish goblet during a three-year investigation that started with a piece of Egyptian parchment found at the University of Al-Azhar in Cairo, the agency reported.

The supposed Holy Grail was offered to King Fernando I, who ruled between 1037 and 1065, as a peace offering by the head of a Muslim kingdom within Spain, the historians said.

The cup, made of agate, gold and onyx, is actually two goblets formed together, the authors claim.

The artifact had been known until last week as the goblet of the Infanta Dona Urraca, King Fernando I's daughter, AFP reported.

Two employees and a guest of the museum at San Isidoro Basilica in Leon, Spain, admire the goblet that a new book has identified as the Holy Grail.

The Holy Grail, made of agate, gold and onyx, is actually two goblets formed together, claim the authors of ‘King of the Grail.’


Western corporations carve up Africa

April 1, 2014 — A newly released report reveals how the British and American governments are facilitating the corporate takeover of African food systems.

Campaigners protest outside the UK Department for International Development. Photo: WDM

Huge tracts of land in African countries with access to the sea and high economic growth are being targeted by corporations such as Monsanto and Unilever with help from the British and American governments –including millions of dollars that are intended for helping the poor, says a report published today by UK campaigning group World Development Movement.

The document, titled Carving up a continent: How the UK government is facilitating the corporate takeover of African food systems, explains that a G8 initiative called the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition is using money intended for poverty reduction to instead ease access to key African locations for some of the world’s biggest companies, which already control much of the global food market.

Doublespeak and the new “scramble for Africa”

What’s more, the New Alliance agreements signed with ten key African countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Malawi, Mozambique, Nigeria, Senegal and Tanzania) are conditional, and many of them require the country in question to bring legislation – for example, revising seed laws to force small farmers to buy seeds and fertilisers from the corporates rather than seed sharing, which has been practised for generations and ensures biodiversity.

Under the new paradigm, multinationals gain access to fertile land and agricultural corridors on the pretext of tackling food poverty and helping Africa’s starving and needy. In reality this is doublespeak. If the New Alliance continues unchecked, it’s likely that problems are stored up for the future, as small scale and family farmers are forced off their land to make way for industrial scale crop production. WDM also identifies issues such as insecure and poorly paid jobs and a focus on producing for export markets rather than to feed local populations.

The report’s introduction, by WDM director Nick Dearden, says: “This is an old story given new impetus. More than a century ago the ‘scramble for Africa’ was instituted under the pretence of civilising the continent. Barbaric crimes were committed and the continent systematically de-developed because it profited Europe. Since that time, Africa’s problem has never been a lack of integration into the international economy – the problem is how it is integrated and in whose interests.”

Oblivious citizens

This isn’t the first time the New Alliance has come under fire – the Guardian newspaper published a critical piece last year. But the general populations of the countries whose taxpayers are supporting this power grab are woefully unaware that it is even happening, and so too are the citizens in whose countries these events are unfolding. This despite the fact that a whopping £600 million of UK aid money, for example, via the Department for International Development (DFID), is being channelled into this between 2012 and 2016.

Ironically this comes at a time when alternatives to the industrialisation of agriculture are being explored worldwide, and as the realities of climate change are being better understood. Africa is a place where new models of permaculture could meet old models of sustainable farming and cooperation to leapfrog the West – finding sustainable and locally owned solutions to nutritious food production.

The wheels are already turning
But this hangs in the balance. Many New Alliance partnership countries, such as Malawi, have already instituted many of the changes demanded as part of their agreement, and it has become much easier for foreign corporations to buy great tracts of land. Ghana recently saw the Plant Breeders’ Bill being pushed through its Parliament by politicians that Food Sovereignty Ghana implied might be on the take.

The corporations involved in the New Alliance are huge – Monsanto, Unilever, Syngenta, DuPont, Cargill, Diageo, SABMiller, Coca Cola, Yara. The last company – Yara – may not be a name you recognise, but is the largest global manufacturer of fertiliser. According to the WDM report, these agrochemicals “already cause serious levels of food poisoning in sub-Saharan Africa, with the UN estimating that health problems linked to pesticides could cost the region $90 billon between 2005 and 2020. Fertilisers also damage soil, leading farmers to rely on them even more in order to maintain production, which increases their risk of getting into debt.”

“The tragic consequences of small-scale farmers’ reliance on fertilisers in India have been much reported. An estimated 250,000 farmers committed suicide between 1995 and 2010 after getting into debt through buying agrochemicals.”

Campaigners representing the New Alliance multinationals carve and eat up Africa. Why no protests anywhere in Africa? Because most of us are oblivious to what’s being done behind our backs, is the simple answer. Photo: WDM

Under the guise of charity

Remember that old development chestnut “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Show him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”? The New Alliance seems to be about snapping his fishing rod in half, throwing it into the sea and telling him that you now own the sea and he must buy his fish from you, at wildly fluctuating prices. And it’s under the guise of charity.

Yet look at the personnel. Unilever’s external affairs director was previously at DFID and DFID’s director of policy used to work for Unilever. Meanwhile, for all the talk of wanting to solve African hunger, the chosen countries are almost all coastal, and tend to have high economic growth. Of the countries in Africa that have the worst hunger index scores, only one – Ethiopia – is a New Alliance country.

While all the players talk about poverty reduction and food security, the reality is that the path that will have the most positive effect for African farmers and populations long term is food sovereignty. That means ownership and control of land and non-reliance on imported seeds and foods, as well as being able to adjust crops to need. It might be tempting to apply the machine logic of industrialisation to agriculture and scale it up, on the basis that more food grown equals more people fed. But in reality the problem of hunger is not one to do with volume of food produced worldwide – rather it’s to do with existing unjust systems of food production and distribution. These are the very systems that the New Alliance is desperate to bring to Africa.

Other players are the Alliance for Green Revolution in Africa, set up by the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Gates Foundation; the New Vision for Agriculture, launched by the World Economic Forum and led by 33 multinationals from Monsanto to Walmart; and Grow Africa, a collaboration between the World Economic Forum and the African Union.

Of course, the New Alliance does have its defenders. Namely, international pop gimp Bono’s ONE Foundation, which hit the headlines a few years ago for giving a whopping 1% of its funds to actual charity…

In its 2013 report Growing Africa: Unlocking the potential of agribusiness the World Bank said: “Africa represents the ‘last frontier’ in global food and agricultural markets.” Once Africa’s greatest commodity to line the pockets of its pillagers was its human capital. Now they’re coming for the land, and the sustenance it offers. Don’t wait until it’s too late.

8 Signs You're In The Right Relationship

http://i1.huffpost.com/gen/1706815/thumbs/n-COUPLE-IN-LOVE-large570.jpg

When it comes to finding "The One" -- that one special person and relationship that will last a lifetime -- the conventional wisdom is simply, "When you know, you know." That's all fine and dandy, but many of us require something more concrete than just a gut feeling.

We reached out to marriage and relationship experts to help us pinpoint the most telling signs that you're in the right relationship. Find out what they had to say below.

1. You know what your partner needs to feel loved -- even if those needs are different than yours.

Some people feel loved when their partner brings them a cup of coffee in the morning. Some need their spouse to tell them how beautiful or handsome they look. Others require sex and physical forms of affection. The point is, each of us has different preferences when it comes to giving and receiving love.

"We have to teach our partner to love us and not expect them to read our minds," sex and relationship expert Dr. Tammy Nelson said. "You know you are with the right person when they tell you what makes them feel loved and you are happy to generously lather them with whatever they need. And they do the same for you."

2. You fight, but you do it productively.

Conflict is a natural part of any relationship, but how you handle those disagreements can predict whether or not you'll be together in the long-run. "How both of you behave now when you have a disagreement also says a lot about how you will (or won't) resolve problems in the future," Dr. Terri Orbuch -- relationship expert and author of Finding Love Again: 6 Simple Steps to a New and Happy Relationship -- told The Huffington Post. "A good relationship is one where the two of you fight fair. In other words, you don't curse, scream, talk down to each other or dismiss each other."

3. You get a confidence boost from your mutual physical attraction.

"Feeling sexual attraction and sexually attractive is a life force like nothing else," Iris Krasnow, author of Sex After...Women Share How Intimacy Changes As Life Changes said. "That person who ignites you from within, boosting your self-esteem and also offers external pleasures is definitely a keeper."

4. You two are different enough to keep things interesting, but you're on the same page where it matters most.

They say that opposites attract, and while that may be true at first, it's not necessarily a long-term predictor of relationship success. In fact, Orbuch's research has shown that the strongest relationships are those built on a foundation of similar underlying values and beliefs.

"It is okay to have different interests or movie likes, but similarity in key life values (e.g., views on money, the importance of religion or how you raise children) is what keeps people together over the long-term," she explained.

5. Your family and friends give the relationship their stamp of approval.

Despite what your once-rebellious heart might have told you, your family's approval of your significant other does matter. W. Bradford Wilcox, the director of the National Marriage Project, told HuffPost Weddings that high levels of social support from your nearest and dearest are crucial to a happy marriage. "Such friends and family often have a more objective view of your partner than you do," he said. "And their support can be invaluable after the wedding. We know that couples who have parents, in-laws, and friends who support them as a couple are much more likely to go the distance."

6. You feel comfortable getting a little adventurous between the sheets.

Couples in secure relationships report that they can combine spontaneous acts of intimacy with tender expressions of their love. "The best recipe for great ongoing sex does not seem to be finding more manuals to get bigger and bigger orgasms but tuning into each other and feeling safe enough to go with the thrill when it comes," Dr. Sue Johnson, a clinical psychologist and author of Love Sense, told The Huffington Post.

7. You are willing to put the "we" before the "me."

A commitment to doing what is best for the relationship, rather than what is best for the individual partner, is a strong predictor of future marital satisfaction. "People who are marriage-minded should look for a partner who talks and thinks in terms of 'we' not 'me'," Wilcox said. "Someone who articulates shared dreams, shared values, and a willingness to put the relationship above his or her desires. Couples who put their marriage above their own desires are more likely to flourish."

8. You find yourself missing your partner when he or she isn't around.

Benjamin Le -- co-founder of ScienceOfRelationships.com -- says it's important to miss your partner when he or she is away. "If they are 'out of sight, out of mind,' that doesn't bode well," he said. "But if you have an emotional response to him or her being away, it's a signal that you really want to be with him or her."

Erastus Akingbola's London home sold for £5.7million



Embattled banker and former Managing Director of the now defunct Intercontinental Bank, Erastus Akingbola's London home has been sold by the UK government for £5.7million pounds, which is about N1.5billion.

A UK Judge, Justice Michael Burton of the Royal Courts of Justice, London, had on July 31 2012, found Erastus Akingbola guilty of theft and fraud of monies totaling £654million and ordered that his London home be sold as part of the properties he is to forfeit having been found guilty.

Mr Akingbola is also standing trial for Financial Crimes here in Nigeria. He is accused by the EFCC of stealing N47billion depositors funds from Intercontinental Bank.



World's busiest airport revealed - and it isn't Heathrow or New York JFK. So where is it?

With its five terminals, endless flurry of travellers and busy skies, many people assume that London’s Heathrow hub is the most visited airport on the planet.

But according to new figures released today, the UK capital’s biggest air terminus is only third on the global list of the world’s busiest airports.

The statistics, which use passenger numbers as the key gauge of an airport’s importance, show that Heathrow had 72 million passengers in 2013 – a rise of 3.3 per cent on 2012.

But this was easily eclipsed by Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in the southern US city of Atlanta – which retained its position as the planet’s busiest air hub.

A crucial connection airport for travellers within the United States – or for visitors from Europe continuing further west into the USA, or on into Central and South America – Hartsfield-Jackson played host to 94 million passengers in 2013.

http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/04/01/article-2594088-1CBCF42700000578-961_634x411.jpg

However, this was a slight decrease – of 1.1 per cent – on the airport’s performance in 2012, according to the figures released by the Airports Council International (ACI).

This allowed a fast-growing rival to close the gap towards the top of the list.

Beijing Capital International Airport saw 84 million passengers pass through its doors and terminals in 2012 – an increase of 2.2 per cent on numbers for the previous year.
