Popular On Air Personality Matse Uwaste has been sacked by her bosses at Nigeria Info, Though the company has not put up an official announcement, my sources have not denied the story either. Apparently she had some issues with her bosses which made them give her the boot. Its shocking to note because she is close to the Moussalli family and used to date a distant relative of theirs and was even thought to be engaged to him. She has always had running issues with all her colleagues, they don't like her and see her as a snitch and are quite weary of her. She known to be quiet brash and arrogant. Her sack isnt a surprise to her colleagues. A handful of her colleagues are hoping she gets called back. I pray she gets called back because she good at what she does. If this does not turn out to be true remember there's no smoke without fire.
The photograph shows a young woman smiling as she points what looks like a pistol directly between the eyes of a child aged around two years old. There are few details about when or where it was taken, but it seems to have appeared originally on an Argentinian Facebook page around a month ago, suggesting the people in it are Latin American. The image sparked panic when it was posted on blogs which campaign against domestic abuse. No Longer Victims shared the photo, saying: 'If there is anybody that can help us to find this child, please please do so. The blog later added: 'A baby can be traumatised like anybody that is a victim of abuse - and this is a form of abuse.' Facebook users have reacted with outrage to the image, with some calling it 'downright evil'. It is not known whether the gun shown in the picture is in fact real, or whether it is a capgun or a prop weapon. However, many people have suggested that even if it is some sort of replica, it is nonetheless irresponsible to expose such a young child to gun violence.

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has yet again opened up over the estranged relationship between him and his former deputy, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, saying that despite the fact that the latter was corrupt during their regime, he (Obasanjo) had to take him along for his second term in office in 2007 due to expediency. “At that time, politically, I needed to carry him (Atiku) along but then to put him in check,” said Obasanjo. Obasanjo, who said that he was unaware of Atiku’s activities until law enforcement agencies in America alerted his government, however, confessed that he could not in good conscience ask that his deputy be investigated then. He, however, said he could not ignore the calls by the Americans to investigate the ex-vice president, which the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) did then.

China is in the middle of yet another crackdown on what it terms "online rumors", as the government tries to rein in social media, increasingly used by Chinese people to discuss politics, despite stringent censorship. According to a judicial interpretation issued by China's top court and prosecutor, people will be charged with defamation if online rumors they create are visited by 5,000 internet users or reposted more than 500 times. That could lead to three years in jail, state media reported, citing the judicial document. That is the standard sentence for defamation.

The discount, which also included 18 holes for $19.11, was valid for the anniversary on Wednesday only. News of the offer spread on social media and the golf course's Facebook page was overrun with negative comments. Course owner and general manager Marc Watts said he received death threats and threats to burn down the family-operated public golf course. An apology posted by Mr Watts on Facebook said: "We would first like to apologise to everyone that we have upset or feels we have disrespected in anyway. By no means did we mean to do this."Mr Watts said he began running the promotion two years ago, and until now it had been warmly received. Abit insensitive i say.
. I know exactly where I was when I first heard the news that a (small) plane had crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City. That small plane quickly turned into a passenger jet. Quickly followed by another one. I had just come back for summer holiday straight from uni, and was wondering what all the commotion was about on TV, all the major news channels were showing the world trade centre live. The world stopped turning and looked on in amazement.
