Love & Relationship : 5 Qualities of a Real Man – Ladies Check This

love-relationship-5-qualities-of-a-real-man-ladies-check-this Love & Relationship 5 Qualities of a Real Man Ladies Check This : We women have made names for ourselves for being highly picky and uncommitted when it comes to the men we choose to mingle with and that is simply because we always tend to set the bar really high. We always look out for faults with which to judge our men instead of looking for some really important qualities in them.

Ladies, let’s tell ourselves the truth, how many of us have told off a guy just because of some silly ‘supposed’ bad habit he exhibited at one point, when we didn’t even get a chance to see his qualities? There are a lot great men out there that have the qualities we really need, if and only if we can see past their weaknesses (supposed bad habits).
For those of us who are overly picky and sometimes confused, here are 5 qualities we should really look out for in a man;

1. HE LEARNS FROM HIS MISTAKES.

By nature, we humans are imperfect and we tend to make more mistakes than we will ever admit, that said, the best quality a can posses is the ability to admit he was wrong whenever he makes a mistake and work towards fixing it.
Even the most successful people today have experienced failure and defeat, but instead of dodging from it, they openly embrace it. A good man will admit he is wrong, a great man will admit he is wrong and will become a better person because of it.

2. HE IS GENEROUS WITH HIS TIME

Truthfully, we woman love to be showered with gifts and money, when it’s time for valentine or any special occasion, we expect our man to give us things like flowers, shoes, bags and the rest and if he doesn’t deliver any of those, we assume he doesn’t care about the relationship.

The rare truth is, a man who gives his time rather than money is the real deal. A man who will give you his attention is more precious than that very one that showers you gifts, yet he’s never around. A man who values time and memories over material things is Priceless.

3. HE IS STRAIGHTFORWARD

To start with, some of us don’t even like it when we are told the reality, we are used to living in a world where things are shrug off and prefer to say “it’s okay” even when it’s not. A man who’s not afraid to tell you ” how it is” is hard to come by, a straight forward and honest man would want to know what the matter is, simply because he would love to help, this sometimes comes with “tough love”, because you will hear things you really don’t want to, but in the long run, it’s best to hear it and have it dealt with.

4. HE IS COMPASSIONATE.

The ability to embrace someone else’s trials or jubilation is one of the most powerful emotions. It’s great to have a man who can understand your pains and also take part in your joy, he’s not afraid to put himself in your shoes so he can see things as you see them and do his best to move forth in a positive manner.

5. HE CAN LAUGH AT HIMSELF.

It is very important to have a partner who can laugh at himself when the going gets tough, as it is, life is tough, and it will be tougher when taken too seriously, have a partner who wouldn’t take out any form of frustration on you, but would rather take a break, laugh it off and get back to set it right.

For Men: Exercises For Better Sex Performance and Skills

 for-men-exercises-for-better-sex-performance-and-skillsFor Men: Exercises For Better Sex Performance and Skills : Want to give your sex life an added boost? It’s as simple as hitting the gym. Exercise increases energy, tones your muscles, burns fat and improves your mood and self-image. But for more reasons than you may know, exercise can also improve your sex life. And even if you already have a pretty great sex life, try incorporating these exercises and stretches into your workout routine and reap the benefits in the bedroom.

1. Swimming:

In another Harvard study of 160 male and female swimmers, swimmers in their 60s reported sex lives comparable to those in their 40s. Since sexual activity can be an act of endurance, long-distance swimming can keep you going and going like the Energizer bunny. Swimming for at least 30 minutes three times a week will increase sexual endurance and also lead to weight loss, which can also lead to better sex. A randomized, single-blind study of 110 obese men with ED found that losing just 10 per cent of their body weight improved sexual function in one third of the men. And it’s no secret that losing excess body fat will help attain those six-pack abs and make you more attractive to potential partners. The result: better sex!

2. Weight lifting:

Strength training could be just what the doctor ordered for your sex life. The reason – weight lifting causes the body to produce testosterone, which is the primary precursor for the male sex drive. In fact, some studies have linked short intense exercise, such as weight lifting, with increased testosterone levels. So go for push-ups, sit-ups and crunches. These muscle-building exercises can help lead to better sex by strengthening the shoulders, chest, and abs. Strong upper body strength can increase stamina since these muscles are used during intercourse.

3. Kegels:

Doing Kegels is considered a good sex exercise for men because these exercises can help endurance and control by toning the pubococcygeus (PC) muscles – the ones that let you stop the flow of urine mid-stream. Named after Los Angeles physician Arnold Kegel, they strengthen the muscles in your body’s pelvic floor, which can lead to better sex. Men can use Kegels to delay ejaculation by contracting these muscles just before orgasm. To do Kegels, start by interrupting the flow of urine when going to the bathroom to get familiar with your PC muscles. After that, you can do Kegels anytime and any place by squeezing the PC muscles. Hold for 10 seconds, relax, and do as many reps as you can before tiring.

How to do them: Start by interrupting the flow of urine when going to the bathroom to get familiar with the PC muscles. Once you’re familiar with them, your goal will be to progressively increase the squeeze duration, intensity and number of reps until you tire. But when you do them, don’t hold your breath, push down or tighten your stomach, buttocks or thigh muscles. Work up to five-second squeezes, relaxing in between each contraction, for 10 to 20 reps.

4. Yoga

Want to shake up your sex life with some new positions? Practicing yoga will give you better sex by allowing your body to get into creative positions for maximum pleasure during intercourse. Yoga poses that improve pelvic muscles are the Bow Pose, Peacock Pose (also called the Forearm or Elbow Balance) and Shoulder Stand.

5. Lying Leg Raises:

Lying leg raises provide an intense core workout, which helps improve thrust and provide mild engagement in the quads and glutes, helping you last longer in upright positions.

How to do it: Lie flat on your back with your legs stretched out in front of you. If you have any back issues, fold a towel and put it under the small of your back. With precision and control, raise your straight legs up toward the ceiling and stop when your legs are perpendicular to your body and the floor. Then, slowly lower your legs back down until they are about an inch off the floor. If the exercise feels too easy, try to lower more slowly. Repeat five times then rest for 30 seconds. Start with three sets and increase repetitions and sets as you get stronger. To modify this exercise, start with your legs bent at the knees and calves parallel to the floor. From there, straighten the legs to the ceiling then slowly lower the legs back into the bent-knee position. Lower your bent legs toward the floor until the toes are an inch from the ground. Return to the start and repeat.

6. Push-ups:

Push-ups strengthen your upper body and core, providing increased all-around endurance and enabling you to rock those on-top positions during sex. If you commit to doing them regularly, you’ll notice a difference in your staying power, your ability to maintain a strong thrust and your overall core and upper-body strength during sex.

How to do them: Begin in a plank position, hands directly under the shoulders and feet hip-distance apart. Do not allow your pelvis to sag too low or lift too high. Lower your chest to the floor and slowly press back up. Do as many of these as you can manage at least twice a week. To modify, take your feet slightly wider apart or drop to your knees, keeping a solid plank position from your neck to your knees. For added intensity, bring your feet together and your hands in slightly. Try adding a clap between push-ups or do one-armed push-ups if you’re feeling really strong.

7. Squats:

Because squats are known to increase testosterone levels and to increase blood flow to the pelvic region (making orgasms more intense), they’re an incredible exercise for enhancing sex. They’ll also strengthen your lower body for a more powerful thrust both while you’re on top and while your partner is on top.

How to do them: With a dumbbell in each hand held straight down at your sides, bend at the hips and knees to squat as low as you can while keeping your back straight. Keep your shins as vertical as possible and your knees directly over your ankles. As you lower, slowly raise your arms straight out in front of you to shoulder height. Drive through the heels and you will naturally lean forward a bit in the upper body for balance. Slowly rise to standing as you lower your arms back down to your sides to complete one rep. Do at least 15 reps.

8. Fast-Walking:

In a study of 31,000 men over age 50, Harvard researchers found that aerobic exercise resulted in a 30 per cent lower risk of erectile dysfunction (ED). More specifically, according to another study, aerobic activity that burns at least 200 calories per day (equal to fast walking for two miles) can significantly lower the risk of ED. Brisk walking is thought to help ED by improving circulation and blood flow. Fast walking, running, and other aerobic activities keep your blood vessels clear. The result can be stronger and longer erections. Vigorous activities, such as running and brisk walking, also release endorphins and relax you, which can boost sexual performance.

Professor Nasiru Shu’aibu : ABU Professor Invents Malaria Vaccine

professor-nasiru-shuaibu-abu-professor-invents-malaria-vaccineProfessor Nasiru Shu’aibu ABU Professor Invents Malaria Vaccine : Professor Nasiru Shu’aibu of the Biochemical Parasitology Department in Ahmadu Bello University, has invented a new vaccine to combat the malaria parasite.

Explaining how the vaccine works, he said a minute quantity of DNA was extracted from a mosquito.

“It is then injected into the body of the animal or human and it eventually enters the cells of the animal in the same way a virus enters and infects cells.

“The injected DNA now uses the cells in the body to produce chemicals that will prevent malaria from infecting the body,” Mr. Shu’aibu said.

He said the approach was also different from the other malaria vaccine (RTS,S/AS01) that was likely to be licensed but the goals were the same, to control and eventually eliminate malaria.

Nigeria, with an estimated population of over 170 million, constitutes the highest malaria burden in Africa and in the world.

Paracetamol Causes Infertility in Men – Experts

Paracetamol Causes Infertility in Men – Experts

Experts have warned that a common painkiller could impair a mans fertility.

New research has suggested that paracetamol, which is also known as acetaminophen and sold under the brand name Tylenol in the United States (U.S.) and Panadol in the United Kingdom (U.K.), has been linked to infertility.

The findings are published online in Human Reproduction whichwas reported by DailyMailUK.

Couples, where the male partner had high levels of the drug in his urine took longer to conceive, according to scientists at the National Institutes of Health.

That was compared to men who had lower levels of the compound in their system.

Paracetamol is a non-prescription drug widely used as a pain reliever and to reduce fever.Paracetamol Causes Infertility in Men - Experts

It is also one of the compounds produced when the body breaks down aniline, a chemical used to make rubber, pesticides, and coloring agents used in food, cosmetics and clothing.

Dr. Melissa Smarr, the studys first author, from United States (NIHs) Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, said: At this point, our findings need to be corroborated by future research, and there is no cause for alarm.

Smarr explained that the high levels of paracetamol in the urine of certain men, who participated in the study, were unlikely to result from taking the painkillers alone.

The findings, she said, are more consistent with those seen from environmental exposure, either to aniline or paracetamol, or a combination of the two.

But, she said, the findings could have implications for the amount of paracetamol exposure that is deemed acceptable.

Researchers led by Dr Smarr analyzed data from the Longitudinal Investigation of Fertility and the Environment (LIFE) study, established to examine how lifestyle and exposure to environmental chemicals may affect fertility.

Men 10 tips to delay and Stop Premature ejaculation

Men 10 tips to delay and Stop Premature ejaculation

10 tips to delay ejaculation ,Sex is often too short. Blame it on a rapid ejaculation … To make it last, some tips and techniques can help you control the movement “reflex”. The advice of Dr. Pierre Desvaux, andrologist sexologist.Men 10 tips to delay and Stop Premature ejaculation

Use and Apply the Following Tips ToStop Premature ejaculation

Stop struggling like hell

Preconceptions die hard! ” Men have to belief that only goes back and forth vigorous will give them to them, as their partner, pleasure longed ” said Dr. Desvaux. This back and forth frenzied function would be to maintain a sufficiently high level of excitement to keep a good erection. ” This is actually the best way to” come “too fast ” ensures our expert. We must return to the slow and build on the changes of pace, ” it ahead of inertia, alternating with accelerations .” In this rhythm is not just mechanical, return to the sensations gently … So can delay ejaculation.

Skip voltage pleasure

Ejaculation is mostly experienced as relief of tension due to the excitement: it is then a discharge … fast. ” It is possible to learn to play with his excitement, to make it last, seeking pleasurable sensations ” suggests our expert. This learning is possible through masturbation . His advice: “Rather than fussing quickly, install comfortably, to caress you, intending to stop when the excitement rises too fast .”Your new goal: to give you pleasure rather than quickly relieve excitement.

You probably know the effect of your fantasies to stimulate excitement, including in situ. Conversely, ” when the excitement rises too fast, focus your mind on something else. Anything, provided there are no erotic connotation ” suggests Dr. Desvaux. It is a voluntary practice! If it is probably not the best for the partner, it has the merit to take effect.

Relax the perineum

Muscle contraction is a primitive reflexes that accelerates the coming of orgasm .Explanations during coitus, the man contracts his muscles bulbo / icchio / cavernosa to increase the quality of erection. ” The release, conversely, will allow to lower its level of excitement ” ensures the sexologist.

It’s a learning process.Men 10 tips to delay and Stop Premature ejaculation

Choosing the right positions

The sexual relationship is a real physical choreography. ” In the orchestration of positions, if you want to last, it is best to start with lower-risk positions and eventually one that leads you to orgasm ” offers Dr. Desvaux. Indeed, some will favor too rapid excitement, others the opposite will allow better control.

A priority:

1 The position of Andromache . Your partner is on you. It is she who sets the pace and depth. You can not dance a jig with your pool, it is a good point for not going “too fast”. However, its fun it can also stimulate your excitement too. In this case, the non-verbal dialogue is essential. Her moans and body language give you directions. If you feel too rapid ascent, you can immobilize his pelvis gently.

2 The position of Small spoons . Behind her, lying on his side, your hands are free, the nested body. This position promotes hugs and slow.Men 10 tips to delay and Stop Premature ejaculation

Avoid certain positions

Some will favor too rapid excitement, others the opposite will allow better control.

To avoid :

1 position in Greyhound : It is too exciting for most men. The vision of the buttocks of their reactive partner archaic images, and stimulates the desire to give great shots basin: all of which lead to rapid ejaculation.

Opting for Stop and Go

Described by Masters and Johnson, the American couple who revolutionized sexology in the 60s, this technique is used primarily for the treatment of premature ejaculation . ” However, it can be an interesting alternative to simply delay ejaculation in a classical context ” says Dr. Desvaux. It is simply to interrupt the movement when the excitement seems to no longer be controlled, and “out” if necessary. Then resume intercourse as soon as the excitement “falls”. It is not always pleasant to your partner, but it’s effective. The idea is to save you.

Practicing squeezing

For Masters and Johnson, is the art and the way to learn to recognize the pre-orgasmic sensation and delay this time in an emergency. The partner must pinch the penis between the thumb and forefinger, with the brake location precisely. ” A gesture that stopped dead the rise ” says our expert. This requires of course to withdraw, and to be fast and accurate. ” It is clear, moreover, that if you go back over again in a frenzy of back-and-forth, this technique will be insufficient ” warns Dr. Desvaux. You can use it during intercourse, but it is not very pleasant for the partner.

Dare delaying condoms

There is an extensive range of condoms , including those in delaying effect. What is it about ? The inside of the condom-covered product that reduces sensation in the penis. The effect obtained is of the order of a lower perception of excitement. If the description is not immediately exciting precisely, this product has the merit of being effective. According to sexologist: “When using this product, the more stimulation can come from giving pleasure to your partner, while increasing your ability to control the duration of erection

Medical students in Nigeria to spend seven years in school not 11 years

Medical students in Nigeria to spend seven years in school not 11 years

The National Universities Commission said that Nigerian medical students will spend 7 years to obtain their first degree not 11 years.

They opined that the new is misleading. Mrs. Adebukola Olatunji, the NUCs Head, Information Department said in a statement on Monday that medical students will only spend seven years in school, rather than 11 years which was widely reported in the news.

She said NUCs Executive Secretary, Prof. Julius Okojie was misrepresented by newsmen.

She said in the, Development of Medical Education in Nigeria: Prospects and Challenges, address, 11 years was not mentioned or implied.

Olatunji said “What Okojie explained was that the NUCs basic minimum academic standard for Medicine and Surgery had been reviewed such that anyone wishing to study Medicine and Surgery and Dentistry will first have to study any of the four-year basic medical science courses, such as Anatomy, Medical Biochemistry and Physiology, before proceeding to the clinical training that would run for three years”

Punch had it that:

Although, the so-called 11-year Medical Programme stories have been credited to the Commissions Executive Secretary, Prof. Julius Okojies keynote address, titled, Development of Medical Education in Nigeria: Prospects and Challenges, which was delivered at the Matriculation and Inauguration of the University of Medical Sciences, Ondo, on Saturday, March 12, 2016, nowhere in that lecture was 11 years mentioned or implied.

Prof. Okojie, who was represented by the Deputy Executive Secretary l, Prof. Chiedu Mafiana, had explained that the new curriculum provides for a seamless seven-year programme.

With the new curriculum, a medical student would be expected to graduate in Basic Medical Sciences, with options in Anatomy, Medical Biochemistry and Physiology in the first four years, before proceeding for the clinical training that would run for three years.

Senator Buruji Kashamu donates 2.5 million Naira for kidney transplant

Senator Buruji Kashamu donates 2.5 million Naira for kidney transplant

The joy of Mr. Adeyemi Aderogba, a patient being treated for kidney failure at the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital (AKTH), Kano, Kano State, knew no bounds on15th March, 2016 when he was presented a cheque for the sum of N2.5million to perform a scheduled kidney transplant at the hospital, courtesy of Senator Buruji Kashamu.

Kashamu is the Senator representing Ogun East Senatorial District of Ogun State and the Founder of a non-governmental organisation, the Omoilu Foundation.Senator Buruji Kashamu donates 2.5 million Naira for kidney transplant 2

The management of the teaching hospital had in January, 2016 written to the Abuja office of the Senator seeking financial assistance to be able to continue the dialysis being done for the patient.

But rather than simply accede to the request for support, Senator Kashamu directed his aides to go further. The Senator wanted to know if more could be done; whether there was a donor for the patient and what the cost of performing a kidney transplant at the hospital would be.
Hospital management confirmed a donor was indeed available and the cost of a kidney transplant would be N2.5million.

In response to the news, Senator Kashamu immediately dispatched two of his aides, Honourable Onadeko Onamusi and Mr. Austin Oniyokor, to Kano where they presented the N2.5 million cheque to the hospitals management.

The team was received by the Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, Prof. Aminu Zakari Mohammed, who was accompanied by the Chairman of the Medical Advisory Council, Dr. Muhammad Mijinyawa and the Director of Administration, Mallam Adamu Aliyu, among others.
In his address, Onamusi, who is the Senior Legislative Aide to Senator Kashamu, said the gesture was natural to the senator as a compassionate leader and philanthropist.

Onamusi spoke of how the Senator has touched countless lives personally and through the Omoilu Foundation, adding that, I think it is safe to say he has dedicated his entire life to giving without looking back.

Onamusi also commended the management of the hospital for taking the initiative to write the senator soliciting assistance for the patient, stressing that such a move was novel.
Responding, Mohammed expressed the gratitude of the members and staff of the hospital to Senator Kashamu for the life-saving initiative, and added that the hospital had done about 30 kidney transplants over the years.

We have heard and read about the good things Senator Kashamu has been doing and we thought that we could approach him on the issue of this patient. We are happy that we are witnesses to his kind gesture. We thank him and pray that the Almighty Allah rewards him abundantly.Senator Buruji Kashamu donates 2.5 million Naira for kidney transplant

We also wish and pray that more wealthy and highly-placed Nigerians would take a cue from Senator Kashamu in giving hope to the hopeless, Mohammed said.

Narrating his ordeal with tears rolling down his cheeks, Adeyemi, 38, said he took ill in May of last year and thought he had contracted malaria.

But, upon being treated for malaria and typhoid in Akure, Ondo State, where he was based, his condition did not improve. So, he went to a hospital in Palmgrove, Lagos, where he discovered that his kidneys were failing.

He was later referred to the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital where he has been undergoing dialysis with the support of his relations and friends. But, as the days went by, and weeks turned to months, his resources began to thin and it was becoming increasingly difficult to raise funds for the dialysis.

That was when the management of the hospital told him they would appeal to well-meaning Nigerians like Senator Kashamu to come to his aid, and according to Adeyemi, Here am I today; Senator Buruji Kashamu being a kind-hearted person has decided to come to my aid.
I cannot thank him enough.

Lagos state launches sexual assault standing order, rape kits

In line with the mandate of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team in partnership with the Ministry of Health and the Primary Health Care Board at the weekend launched the Sexual Assault Standing Order and Sexual Assault Evidence Examination Kit, also referred to as rape kits.
The Coordinator of the DSVRT, Titilola Vivour-Adeniyi, said the launch was done at a training session for health workers of Primary Health Care Centres.
Vivour-Adeniyi listed the five pilot centres to include Ogudu, Ita-elewa in Ikorodu, Ajilete in Ifako-Ijaiye, Palm Avenue in Mushin and Oshodi in Oshodi-Isolo.
She said the selection of the pilot PHCs was methodically done as statistic reveals that sexual and gender based assault related crimes are most prevalent in these areas.
These centres render 24 hours service, laboratory, HIV Counselling and Testing and Maternal and Child Health Services.
According to her: The Rape Kits contain the necessary instruments used for evidence gathering and examination some of which include microscope slides, saline water, swabs for collecting fluids from delicate body parts like the lips, cheeks, thighs, private parts.
The Kit also includes materials for blood samples, comb, paper sheets for evidence collection such as clothing fibres and hairs, nail pick for scraping debris from beneath the nails, gloves. The documentation forms which include the consent form and Patient History/Sexual Assault History are also in the rape kit.
Vivour-Adeniyi said the Lagos State Sexual Assault Standing Order, the first of its kind in Nigeria, was produced to guide the provision of health care services as well as set the minimum acceptable standards for the provision of quality health care to the survivors of sexual assault.
She expressed optimism that the Standing Order will equip healthcare providers with tools to facilitate examination, treatment and management of sexual assault patients.
She said: The output of this training in terms of knowledge shared with the workers will ultimately facilitate examination and management of patients after sexual assault, and also improve the quality and documentation of evidence collection.
The protocol response to be adopted is now clearly enumerated, some of which include taking the survivor/patient to a designated area, getting the informed consent of the survivor to have the examination, obtaining the medical history, and then proceeding to collect the different samples necessary for forensic examination and testing.
The training was organised by the Lagos DSVRT with technical support from the United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS, United Nations Population Fund and FHI 360

Obiano Effect: Anambra Achieves another First, Performs Open Heart Surgery on 5 Patients in January

Anambra State has continued to remain in the news for the right reasons. The State has been performing, is still performing and will continue to perform open heart surgeries.

According to a Press Release signed by the State Commissioner for Infomation, Culture & Tourisn, Dr Barr Mrs Uju Nwogu, a Team of Medical Doctors based in the USA, Global Eagle Foundation led by Dr Joe Nwiloh in partnership with the State Government and the Catholic Archdiocese of Awka has in January 2016 again successfully carried out open heart surgery on five patients with diseases of the heart and great vessels at the Dr Joe Nwiloh Heart Center, St Joseph’s Hospital, Adazi Nnukwu, Anaocha LGA.

Dr Nwogu stated that out of the five patients that were operated upon, four were adults while one was a child, all with failing hearts. She further stated that one of the patients was the first in the South East & South South Zones of the Federation to undergo a coronary artery bypass surgery. This she said was made possible by the sophisticated state of the art monitoring equipment & mechanical support which the Center has for all heart related ailments. The Information Commissioner in addition stated that patients are seen daily at the Center for routine checks & consultations even as surgeries are scheduled and done monthly. The goal of the Team is to service all the needs of patients afflicted with heart related diseases.

Anambra State through the vision of the Government is one of the few States in Nigeria performing heart surgery, with the Center being one of the top in Africa. People should therefore avail themselves of this great life opportunity available in Anambra State to treat their heart diseases and be healthy.

Dr Nwogu however called on philanthropic individuals and corporate groups to contribute to the growth of the center by assisting in acquiring a cardiac catheterization laboratory to enable it complete its diagnostic capabilities.

A paramilitary officer attached to the Lagos State Environmental and Special Offences (Task Force) MR. Uzan Rildwan was stabbed on his head and had 2 of his fingers cut off by commercial drivers and market touts under Oshodi bridge this morning.

The fracas was as a result of men of the Task Force arresting commercial buses obstructing traffic and causing traffic gridlocks at Oshodi under bridge this morning.
Commercial bus drivers and market touts under the Oshodi bridge came out and attacked both Police and Paramilitary officers with broken bottles, cutlasses, wood and other dangerous weapons in order to secure the release of the arrested 6 commercial buses.

Mr. Uzan Rildwan who was injured during the fracas was immediately rushed to nearby hospital for treatment before he was transferred to General Hospital Ikeja for further diagnoses on his head.

Meanwhile, with the introduction of Mobile Court , it is expected that motorists would comport themselves and complied with the Lagos State Traffic Laws of 2012.

The mobile court which will be moving from different locations across the state with Magistrates, Lawyers, Black Maria, Cashier, Police and Towing vehicles is set to deal with growing cases of traffic and environmental abuses in the state.

Offences by commercial motorcycles riding against traffic, refusal to obey traffic signs, commercial bus drivers (Danfo) who operate on motion with their doors open among others will be tried by the mobile court.

It is expected that bus conductors should always make sure that doors of their commercial bus is closed whenever their vehicle is on motion and most only stopped at designated bus-stop during when dropping and picking passengers, motorcycle riders should not ride against traffic or ride their motorcycles on restricted routes across the state.

The step taken by the government would bring sanity to the system and does not exclude private vehicle owners who constantly disobeyed traffic Laws.

However, during a week operation by the Lagos State Task Force across the state , 24 commercial and private vehicles who contravened traffic laws were arrested and made to pay fines, 43 were screened out of the 390 miscreants arrested while remaining 347 were charged to courts and 297 motorcycles were impounded by Task Force.

Zika virus, which spreads in Latin America via the Aedes aegypti mosquito was detected in the urine and saliva, a Brazilian scientific research institute says it is too early to know if this is a new mode of contagion. “The presence of Zika virus, in active form, was detected in saliva and urine,” said the press Paulo Gadelha, director of the Fiocruz Institute in Rio de Janeiro, “but that does not mean that there is a capacity of transmission through saliva and urine. ”

“We’ll have to do a lot of studies” to find out, however, “the saliva and urine should not be an important route of transmission,” said Paulo Gadelha. However, he recommended, especially to pregnant women to protect themselves. “Knowing that the possibility of this form of transmission exists, pregnant women should take precautionary measures,” such as “avoid kissing, sharing cutlery” a person with signs suggesting she contracted Zika, said the researcher.

Transmitted by the bite of Aedes mosquito, Zika is strongly suspected of being the cause of many cases of microcephaly, a congenital malformation in infants whose mothers were infected during pregnancy. About 1.5 million patients Zika virus have been reported in Brazil , where 404 cases of microcephaly were confirmed and 3670 suspected cases are being examined, according to the World Health Organization(WHO) has declared this week a “public health emergency of international concern”.

The only way is to avoid being bitten by the so-called Aedes mosquitoes, which transmit the infection. More than twentycountries, the Zika virus is placed in the same category as international concerns about Ebola last year.Meanwhile the Zikavirus been established in 21 countries, almost all in Latin America. Most infections are mild and cause few or no symptoms, although some cases of a rare paralysis disorder:.

Pesticides must mosquitoes cup miniaturization
Al days trying the authorities in the affected countries the clouds of mosquitoes with pesticides to a cup size. But a lot of it does not deliver on said mosquito expert Bart Knols. ,, For health reasons, the low dose of poison. Moreover, the mosquito is often resistant to pesticides. Furthermore, keep the mosquitoes that are indoors outside shot. Once someone clears a cloud of smoke in the street close windows and doors and the occupants survived the mosquito yet. “” It is preferable according to the mosquitoes expert to appoint more inspectors. ,, Who cleans up the mess around his house, it helps enormously to prevent the spread of the virus. The mosquitoes breed in stagnant water.

Not in rainwater puddles in the street but in buckets, cans or gutters. There you must do something. ” Knols uses a method in which mosquitoes into a trap with powder being lured. ,, Once they breeding countries, the powder kills the mosquito larvae in it. In the period between the early 40s and late 60s, the mosquito was virtually disappeared in Latin America. ,, It is possible to eradicate the animal, ” said Knols. ,, Then you’ve not only lost the Zikavirus but also dengue and chikungunya which are transmitted by the same mosquito. ”

British scientists have taken a major step in developing a vaccine against hiv. They developed two prototype vaccine vector. The study was published in the journal “vaccine”.

The prototype was developed by a team of researchers from royal holloway, university of london and imperial college london. It was based on chimpanzee adenovirus. They decided to use the variant of the chimpanzee because of its low prevalence in humans and, in recent studies, it was found that the human adenovirus increases the risk of hiv infection.

The researchers developed the chad3 and chad63 vectors. In studies in mice, scientists have used to produce these vectors transgene gag, pol and nef hiv. Findings have shown that t cells in mice responded to all three peptides induced only when chad3; with chad63, only two peptides responded. The magnitude of immune responses was influenced by the vector dose.

In general, the chimpanzee adenovirus vector are suitable candidates for the production of hiv proteins and can be used for a vaccine. However, it takes other pre-clinical tests, the study noted.

All the state government donated, is not even up to the value of the wheel chair that a concerned Nigerian gave to her, and still didn’t make noise about it,but see how they are taking pictures as if they have broken another Guinness world record by donating indomie that is nearly expired and rice which Lassa fever status has not been verified. – Niceprof

The problem is not only Rahama, there are plenty of them only that a good Samaritan brought her plight to the public. Govt. Should look for these kind of people with disabilities with the view of assisting them. They are everywhere. -Yusuf Mohammed

May god reward you with janna for these great donation which comes at the right time i m happy doe to the donation have been presented in my Local Govt. God bless u all – Usman

Aishat thank you very much, but this gesture looks more like stomach infrasture to me than empowerment. All I see here is not more than what the family can consume in 2 months. Governments should be more ingenious than this. A pepper grinding machine can generate income for the family than this stuffs. – Babatunde

Honestly kano state government is a monumental joke. How do you give a limbless child cartons of indomie and vegetable oil and call that a respite? How long will the food stuff last poor Rahma? The poor girl needs a life changing environment and not these food items.

Why am I even ranting? Is it not Ganduje? Nothing surprises me about dude. –Ahmad Umar

Zaria Massacre: Sheikh Zakzaky Sent To France For Treatment

Zaria Massacre: Sheikh Zakzaky Sent To France For Treatment

The Embattled leader was flown to France ortreatment of gun shot injuries he suffered during the encounter between his supporters and members of the Nigerian army last year.

According to The Vanguard, the news was confirmed by military sources in Abuja on Saturday, January 23.

Several security sources who are knowledgeable in the matter, revealed that due to the seriousness of the injuries the Shiite leader sustained a clash with the army, he was secretly flown to France by the Nigerian government some weeks ago for treatment before being returned to the country two weeks ago.

Since the clash between the sect and the Military, his whereabouts has been shrouded in secrecy until it was revealed that he was moved from Kaduna to a safe house in Abuja belonging to one of the security services.

One of the sources said: It is true that the federal government flew him out of the country for treatment. He was stabilized before he was brought back to Nigeria. The government did not want to take chances by keeping him in the country. We did not want a repeat of the incidence with the late leader of the Boko Haram movement whose death in custody exacerbated the crisis in the north east

It would be recalled that during the bloody encounter between members of the Shiites and the Nigerian army, several members of the sect were killed while many others sustained various degrees of injuries with some still on admission at the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital in Shika near Zaria.

The showed occured, following an alleged rift over a blockade mounted by members of the sect along the Zaria-sokoto road. The road block reportedly prevented the convoy of the chief of Army staff from passing through despite several entreaties.

It was in the wake during this tussle that a bloody clash ensued, leaving Sheikh El-Zakzaky with several gun shot wounds, with some reports claiming that one of his eyes was affected during the showdown.

Meanwhile, some Kano residents have written a letter of complaint to the governer of Kano stateabout Shiites dangerous activities in the Kofar Waika area of the state, the residents called for the demolition of the residence of late Muhammad Turi which has been converted to a shrine.

Rolling With Makeup Artists at the Halloween Parade

If you’ve ever spent an entire night just waiting for the moment you can kick off your heels, you aren’t alone. Actress Kristen Stewart has been busy killing it on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival.

They doubtless were Thark warriors who had been sent out to capture us, and we breathed a great sigh of relief that they were traveling in the opposite direction. Quickly lifting Dejah Thoris from the thoat, I commanded the animal to lie down and we three did the same, presenting as small an object as possible for fear of attracting the attention of the warriors toward us.

We could see them as they filed out of the pass, just for an instant, before they were lost to view behind a friendly ridge; to us a most providential ridge; since, had they been in view for any great length of time, they scarcely could have failed to discover us. As what proved to be the last warrior came into view from the pass, he halted and, to our consternation, threw his small but powerful fieldglass to his eye and scanned the sea bottom in all directions. Evidently he was a chieftain, for in certain marching formations among the green men a chieftain brings up the extreme rear of the column. As his glass swung toward us our hearts stopped in our breasts, and I could feel the cold sweat start from every pore in my body.

We are committed to remaining by his side as a family for our champion.

We are committed to remaining by his side as a family for our champion.

And then the moonlight flooded the cave, and there before me lay my own body as it had been lying all these hours, with the eyes staring toward the open ledge and the hands resting limply upon the ground. I looked first at my lifeless clay there upon the floor of the cave and then down at myself in utter bewilderment; for there I lay clothed, and yet here I stood but naked as at the minute of my birth.

The transition had been so sudden and so unexpected that it left me for a moment forgetful of aught else than my strange metamorphosis. My first thought was, is this then death! Have I indeed passed over forever into that other life! But I could not well believe this, as I could feel my heart pounding against my ribs from the exertion of my efforts to release myself from the anaesthesis which had held me. My breath was coming in quick, short gasps, cold sweat stood out from every pore of my body, and the ancient experiment of pinching revealed the fact that I was anything other than a wraith.

Again was I suddenly recalled to my immediate surroundings by a repetition of the weird moan from the depths of the cave. Naked and unarmed as I was, I had no desire to face the unseen thing which menaced me.

My revolvers were strapped to my lifeless body which, for some unfathomable reason, I could not bring myself to touch. My carbine was in its boot, strapped to my saddle, and as my horse had wandered off I was left without means of defense.

 

Unable longer to resist the temptation to escape

This horrible place I leaped quickly

The crisp, fresh mountain air outside the cave acted as an immediate tonic and I felt new life and new courage coursing through me. Pausing upon the brink of the ledge I upbraided myself for what now seemed to me wholly unwarranted apprehension. I reasoned with myself that I had lain helpless for many hours within the cave, yet nothing had molested me, and my better judgment, when permitted the direction of clear and logical reasoning, convinced me that the noises I had heard must have resulted from purely natural and harmless causes; probably the conformation of the cave was such that a slight breeze had caused the sounds I heard.

I decided to investigate, but first I lifted my head to fill my lungs with the pure, invigorating night air of the mountains. As I did so I saw stretching far below me the beautiful vista of rocky gorge, and level, cacti-studded flat, wrought by the moonlight into a miracle of soft splendor and wondrous enchantment.

Few western wonders are more inspiring than the beauties of an Arizona moonlit landscape; the silvered mountains in the distance, the strange lights and shadows upon hog back and arroyo, and the grotesque details of the stiff, yet beautiful cacti form a picture at once enchanting and inspiring; as though one were catching for the first time a glimpse of some dead and forgotten world, so different is it from the aspect of any other spot upon our earth.

Unable longer to resist the temptation to escape this horrible place I leaped quickly through the opening into the starlight of a clear Arizona night. The crisp, fresh mountain air outside the cave acted as an immediate tonic and I felt new life and new courage coursing through me.

As I stood thus meditating, I turned my gaze from the landscape to the heavens where the myriad stars formed a gorgeous and fitting canopy for the wonders of the earthly scene. My attention was quickly riveted by a large red star close to the distant horizon. As I gazed upon it I felt a spell of overpowering fascinationit was Mars, the god of war, and for me, the fighting man, it had always held the power of irresistible enchantment. As I gazed at it on that far-gone night it seemed to call across the unthinkable void, to lure me to it, to draw me as the lodestone attracts a particle of iron.

Presently it swung full upon us andstopped. The tension on our nerves was near the breaking point, and I doubt if any of us breathed for the few moments he held us covered by his glass; and then he lowered it and we could see him shout a command to the warriors who had passed from our sight behind the ridge. He did not wait for them to join him, however, instead he wheeled his thoat and came tearing madly in our direction..

But now the sounds inside had ceased, and a thin circle of bright metal showed between the top and the body of the cylinder. Air was either entering or escaping at the rim with a thin, sizzling sound. They listened, rapped on the scaly burnt metal with a stick, and, meeting with no response, they both concluded the man or men inside must be insensible or dead. Of course the two were quite unable to do anything.

Henderson went into the railway station at once, in order to telegraph the news to London. The newspaper articles had prepared men’s minds for the reception of the idea. I found a little crowd of perhaps twenty people surrounding the huge hole in which the cylinder lay.

 

 

GREGG THE BUTCHER AND HIS LITTLE BOY

I think they perceived that nothing was to be done for the present, and had gone away to breakfast at Henderson’s house. There were four or five boys sitting on the edge of the Pit, with their feet dangling, and amusing themselves–until I stopped them–by throwing stones at the giant mass. After I had spoken to them about it, they began playing at “touch” in and out of the group of bystanders. Among these were a couple of cyclists, a jobbing gardener I employed sometimes, a girl carrying a baby, Gregg the butcher and his little boy, and two or three loafers and golf caddies who were accustomed to hang about the railway station. There was very little talking. Few of the common people in England had anything but the vaguest astronomical ideas in those days. Most of them were staring quietly at the big table like end of the cylinder, which was still as Ogilvy and Henderson had left it.

I fancy the popular expectation of a heap of charred corpses was disappointed at this inanimate bulk. Some went away while I was there, and other people came. I clambered into the pit and fancied I heard a faint movement under my feet.

It was only when I got thus close to it that the strangeness of this object was at all evident to me. At the first glance it was really no more exciting than an overturned carriage or a tree blown across the road. Not so much so, indeed. It looked like a rusty gas float. It required a certain amount of scientific education to perceive that the grey scale of the Thing was no common oxide, that the yellowish-white metal that gleamed in the crack between the lid and the cylinder had an unfamiliar hue.

 

 

WELCOME TO NEW YORK

“He pays reg’lar,” was the rejoinder. “But come, it’s getting dreadful late, you had better be turning flukesit’s a nice bed; Sal and me slept in that ere bed the night we were spliced. There’s plenty of room for two to kick about in that bed; it’s an almighty big bed that. Why, afore we give it up, Sal used to put our Sam and little Johnny in the foot of it. But I got a dreaming and sprawling about one night, and somehow, Sam got pitched on the floor, and came near breaking his arm. Arter that, Sal said it wouldn’t do. Come along here, I’ll give ye a glim in a jiffy;” and so saying he lighted a candle and held it towards me, offering to lead the way. But I stood irresolute; when looking at a clock in the corner, he exclaimed “I vum it’s Sundayyou won’t see that harpooneer to-night; he’s come to anchor somewherecome along then; DO come; WON’T ye come?”

Never in my life had I been so surprised, but the habit of military discipline is strong within me, and I dropped my little machine lightly to the ground and advanced on foot as I had seen the others do. As I halted before the officer, he addressed me in a voice audible to the entire assemblage of troops and spectators.

“In recognition, John Carter,” he said, “of your remarkable courage and skill in defending the person of the cousin of the jeddak Than Kosis and, singlehanded, vanquishing three green warriors, it is the pleasure of our jeddak to confer on you the mark of his esteem.”

Than Kosis then advanced toward me and placing an ornament upon me, said:

“My cousin has narrated the details of your wonderful achievement, which seems little short of miraculous, and if you can so well defend a cousin of the jeddak how much better could you defend the person of the jeddak himself. You are therefore appointed a padwar of The Guards and will be quartered in my palace hereafter.”

I thanked him, and at his direction joined the members of his staff. After the ceremony I returned my machine to its quarters on the roof of the barracks of the air-scout squadron, and with an orderly from the palace to guide me I reported to the officer in charge of the palace.

There’s plenty of room for two to kick about in that bed; it’s an almighty big bed that. Why, afore we give it up, Sal used to put our Sam and little Johnny in the foot of it. But I got a dreaming and sprawling about one night, and somehow, Sam got pitched on the floor, and came near breaking his arm. Arter that, Sal said it wouldn’t do. Come along here, I’ll give ye a glim in a jiffy;” and so saying he lighted a candle and held it towards me, offering to lead the way. But I stood irresolute; when looking at a clock in the corner, he exclaimed “I vum it’s Sundayyou won’t see that harpooneer to-night; he’s come to anchor somewherecome along then; DO come; WON’T ye come?”

Never in my life had I been so surprised, but the habit of military discipline is strong within me, and I dropped my little machine lightly to the ground and advanced on foot as I had seen the others do. As I halted before the officer, he addressed me in a voice audible to the entire assemblage of troops and spectators.

“In recognition, John Carter,” he said, “of your remarkable courage and skill in defending the person of the cousin of the jeddak Than Kosis and, singlehanded, vanquishing three green warriors, it is the pleasure of our jeddak to confer on you the mark of his esteem.”

Than Kosis then advanced toward me and placing an ornament upon me, said:

“My cousin has narrated the details of your wonderful achievement, which seems little short of miraculous, and if you can so well defend a cousin of the jeddak how much better could you defend the person of the jeddak himself. You are therefore appointed a padwar of The Guards and will be quartered in my palace hereafter.”

I thanked him, and at his direction joined the members of his staff. After the ceremony I returned my machine to its quarters on the roof of the barracks of the air-scout squadron, and with an orderly from the palace to guide me I reported to the officer in charge of the palace.

The Victoria’s Secret Angels’ Off-Duty Looks Are Just as Sexy as Their Runway Lingerie

To say were more obsessed with bare Minerals founder Leslie Blodgett than we are with the product itself would be a lie, so we like to say we love both equally.

She’s a sun-kissed blonde, straight-acrossno muss, no fuss. She came into the office wearing a red cardigan and ate Sour Patch Kids waiting for hairstylistDidier Maligeto give her a haircut. Not necessarily something drasticbut something new. Spring may have arrived with a hefty dose of snow this year, but once the seasons change, it’s hard not to feel like a little personal change is in order.

He takes Louise's hair and begins to cut long layers at the ends with scissors.

He takes Louise’s hair and begins to cut long layers at the ends with scissors.

Eventually Didier walks in and there’s Louise, hunched over, playing with her split ends. Maybe expecting someone with layered, voluminous head of hair ready for experimentation, instead he got the epitome of Midwest simplicity. She recently graduated with a degree in photography (eventually she plans on working as aphotojournalist) and made it through the four years of school cutting her hairmaybeonce. Her daily routine consists of washing and leaving her hair to air dry without brushing, in hopes of keeping any waves.

You should be a bit more wild,” Didier tells her. When she says at this stage, she already feels “too old for that now,” he responds: “Are you crazy? You haven’t even discovered life yet!” Haircuts are best served with a side of sage advice, we find.

Didier is known to be scissor happyhe’s comes from the school of hairstylists in the ’60s and ’70s who made sex hair a thing.”I’m not attracted to very neat hair. I think it’s an American thing to smooth and tame. Now, you don’t see any more pictures of models with little hairs sticking out. It’s all Photoshopped out.”

Hetakes Louise’s hair and begins to cut long layers at the ends with scissors.”Do you want to look?” Heasks her. “No, I trust you,” Louise says. It couldn’t really be called a full-blown haircut, but rather a few stylized, strategic snipsto give it more body. He then soaked Louise’s hair inL’Oral Wild Stylers by Techni.Art Beach Wavesfor some matte, subtle texture. Soaked isn’t an exaggerationhe kept forewarning Louise that he wasreallygoing to wet it.Windblown effects can be attributed to hosting the photoshoot part of the gathering on the roof.

“I think I’ll keep it,” she says as she looks at the photosjust before Didier sweeps it up into a different look, this one more cockatiel cum black tie updo.Inspired by Louise’s vintage Celine secretary blouse, Didier went with the 1940s feel to create the rebellious Euro counterpart to the doughnut-ified American top-knot. It’s wild looking, but at least half of the fun comes from knowing you’ve got bangs, without actually having to get bangs. Maybe next time, Didier.

Angelina Jolie Might Have Just Found Her Power Color

Hollywood Babylon, Kenneth Angers 1959 book about the film industrys formative years, is so juicy its easy to forget that most of the stories in it are half-true, at best.

We got all the details from Rocha and her hairstylist Anh Co Tran, who gave herthe cut last night at Privby Laurentin NYC. They doubtless were Thark warriors who had been sent out to capture us, and we breathed a great sigh of relief that they were traveling in the opposite direction. Quickly lifting Dejah Thoris from the thoat, I commanded the animal to lie down and we three did the same, presenting as small an object as possible for fear of attracting the attention of the warriors toward us.

We could see them as they filed out of the pass, just for an instant, before they were lost to view behind a friendly ridge; to us a most providential ridge; since, had they been in view for any great length of time, they scarcely could have failed to discover us. As what proved to be the last warrior came into view from the pass, he halted and, to our consternation, threw his small but powerful fieldglass to his eye and scanned the sea bottom in all directions. Evidently he was a chieftain, for in certain marching formations among the green men a chieftain brings up the extreme rear of the column. As his glass swung toward us our hearts stopped in our breasts, and I could feel the cold sweat start from every pore in my body.

We are committed to remaining by his side as a family for our champion.

We are committed to remaining by his side as a family for our champion.

And then the moonlight flooded the cave, and there before me lay my own body as it had been lying all these hours, with the eyes staring toward the open ledge and the hands resting limply upon the ground. I looked first at my lifeless clay there upon the floor of the cave and then down at myself in utter bewilderment; for there I lay clothed, and yet here I stood but naked as at the minute of my birth.

The transition had been so sudden and so unexpected that it left me for a moment forgetful of aught else than my strange metamorphosis. My first thought was, is this then death! Have I indeed passed over forever into that other life! But I could not well believe this, as I could feel my heart pounding against my ribs from the exertion of my efforts to release myself from the anaesthesis which had held me. My breath was coming in quick, short gasps, cold sweat stood out from every pore of my body, and the ancient experiment of pinching revealed the fact that I was anything other than a wraith.

Again was I suddenly recalled to my immediate surroundings by a repetition of the weird moan from the depths of the cave. Naked and unarmed as I was, I had no desire to face the unseen thing which menaced me.

My revolvers were strapped to my lifeless body which, for some unfathomable reason, I could not bring myself to touch. My carbine was in its boot, strapped to my saddle, and as my horse had wandered off I was left without means of defense.

 

Unable longer to resist the temptation to escape

This horrible place I leaped quickly

The crisp, fresh mountain air outside the cave acted as an immediate tonic and I felt new life and new courage coursing through me. Pausing upon the brink of the ledge I upbraided myself for what now seemed to me wholly unwarranted apprehension. I reasoned with myself that I had lain helpless for many hours within the cave, yet nothing had molested me, and my better judgment, when permitted the direction of clear and logical reasoning, convinced me that the noises I had heard must have resulted from purely natural and harmless causes; probably the conformation of the cave was such that a slight breeze had caused the sounds I heard.

I decided to investigate, but first I lifted my head to fill my lungs with the pure, invigorating night air of the mountains. As I did so I saw stretching far below me the beautiful vista of rocky gorge, and level, cacti-studded flat, wrought by the moonlight into a miracle of soft splendor and wondrous enchantment.

Few western wonders are more inspiring than the beauties of an Arizona moonlit landscape; the silvered mountains in the distance, the strange lights and shadows upon hog back and arroyo, and the grotesque details of the stiff, yet beautiful cacti form a picture at once enchanting and inspiring; as though one were catching for the first time a glimpse of some dead and forgotten world, so different is it from the aspect of any other spot upon our earth.

Unable longer to resist the temptation to escape this horrible place I leaped quickly through the opening into the starlight of a clear Arizona night.

As I stood thus meditating, I turned my gaze from the landscape to the heavens where the myriad stars formed a gorgeous and fitting canopy for the wonders of the earthly scene. My attention was quickly riveted by a large red star close to the distant horizon. As I gazed upon it I felt a spell of overpowering fascinationit was Mars, the god of war, and for me, the fighting man, it had always held the power of irresistible enchantment. As I gazed at it on that far-gone night it seemed to call across the unthinkable void, to lure me to it, to draw me as the lodestone attracts a particle of iron.

Supercool Shoe Line Just Won a Major Fashion Award

“When I saw fur shoes, I knew I was in the right place,” Kanye West exclaimed after visiting the Brother Vellies presentation this past Fashion Week.

Should You Be Wearing Wedges Instead of Heels?

Who doesnt love the way their legs look in heels? Unfortunately, we all know the damage they can do not only to our feet, but also to our backs and the rest of our body.

On the sidewalks during Fashion Week,lewk-wearers will attempt some styling tricks that might look incredible in a picture, but don’t necessarily work for the real world. Take that whole thing aboutthrowing your jacket over your shoulders at this point, it’s a street style clich. But leave it to fashion people to turn toward something even more challenging as trends start to tire…

We call it the forced shoulder exposure. Whether you’re wearing your jackets around your elbows or pulling a wide neckline down and around a shoulder, manipulating your clothes to look like they’re already halfway off has made its way from a runway styling trend to a Fashion Week attendee trend. If we read the patterns, that means you’ll probably be seeing a real-life version on the street in just a few months…or maybe in the mirror?

I can see why she wouldnt be into talking to me, another nosy reporter. So, I’m pleasantly surprised when she arrives and greets me with a warm hug that lasts longer than I expect it to. Her raven hair and impossibly long eyelashes are every bit as dazzling in person as they are in her glamorous Instagram selfies. Save for a bit of sparkle shadow on her lids, she appears to be makeup-free. She is only 5-foot-5, but she seems statuesque in her cropped sweater, high-waisted leggings, and heels. The outfit gives the illusion that she is nearly all legs.

After the hug, Gomez sits down, tucks her hair behind her ear, folds her hands nails painted a deep, slate gray and carefully filed into pointy talons and waits for the first question. Shes all business. After spending years being judged in the press and media-trained by the Disney machine, she has built up a protective wall that can seem impenetrable. Finding out who she really is beyond the gossip is like digging for fossils with a Q-tip.

HOW TO CONTROL YOUR DREAMS

But by 20 minutes in, were getting somewhere. We talk about the complexities of female self-confidence at best, its schizophrenic and we laugh about an Amy Schumer joke that she roughly translates as, Some mornings you wake up and you’re like, ‘Everything about me is amazing!’ And the next morning you’re like, ‘How did anybody ever sleep with me?’

After an hour, Selena Gomez is giving me a tour of her tattoos. There are six in all: a tiny music note on her right wrist was her first. I wanted something small to test the waters, she says. Now Im addicted. Theres the initial G behind her left ear for her 2-year-old sister, Gracie; her mothers birthday in Roman numerals on the back of her neck; a Bible verse on her right hip that reads, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. The date on her left hip represents when she met one of her best friends eight years ago, and the phrase in Arabic on her back means, Love yourself first. Shes contemplating getting a seventh tattoo to celebrate her own revival the album and the personal reinvention.

But a day or two after, you look about you, and prick your ears in this self-same.

For all her supposed skittishness, Gomez actually wants to show the world who she is and, in the coming months, shell have plenty of opportunity to do that. Besides the new album, shes joining The Voice as an advisor, handpicked by Gwen Stefani for her confidence and creativity, Stefani said via email, adding, Selena is incredibly passionate about her craft, and her talent far exceeds what one would expect from a woman her age.” Gomez will also appear in four upcoming movies, including a hush-hush part in Decembers financial-crisis drama The Big Short, starring Brad Pitt and Christian Bale.

And, in a role that seems to be the definition of “giant leap,” she portrays a Depression-era young mother in the onscreen adaptation of John Steinbecks In Dubious Battle, a performance her director (and Spring Breakers co-star) James Franco promises will reveal the depth of her acting talent.
If she were allowed to play [more] roles beyond just teenagers with teen interests, she would show her innate maturity and strength, Franco said via email. She has had to face pressures and scrutiny at a young age that most never face in a lifetime. So when she is able to display the strength and leadership she has developed, she shines.

So yes, you might say this is a big moment for Selena Gomez. After a rough 12 months, shes picking herself back up and taking control of her career.

Not bad for a 23-year-old who got her big break dancing with a plushy.

Its all overRevival. Before Good for You was released

The video to that song features her rolling around on a couch, the floor, and in the shower. The artwork for the albums cover is a black-and-white portrait of her sitting cross-legged and topless, staring into the camera. Its not a come-hither stare. The expression seems to say, with self-assured attitude,Yeahwhat?

All the numerous implements which have been in use.

It’s not something where I’m like, let me glorify what I do in the bedroom, she says. But I think I have a very healthy perspective on my sexuality. It’s part of being an adult, and I’m still figuring out how to be one of those, too. (A happily single one, at the moment. She issues this PSA to potential suitors: Do not try to date me right now.)

And as for those who, previously hearing of the White Whale, by chance caught sight of him; in the beginning of the thing they had every one of them, almost, as boldly and fearlessly lowered for him, as for any other whale of that species. But at length, such calamities did ensue in these assaultsnot restricted to sprained wrists and ankles, broken limbs, or devouring amputationsbut fatal to the last degree of fatality; those repeated disastrous repulses, all accumulating and piling their terrors upon Moby Dick; those things had gone far to shake the fortitude of many brave hunters, to whom the story of the White Whale had eventually come.

Nor did wild rumors of all sorts fail to exaggerate, and still the more horrify the true histories of these deadly encounters. For not only do fabulous rumors naturally grow out of the very body of all surprising terrible events,as the smitten tree gives birth to its fungi; but, in maritime life, far more than in that of terra firma, wild rumors abound, wherever there is any adequate reality for them to cling to. And as the sea surpasses the land in this matter, so the whale fishery surpasses every other sort of maritime life, in the wonderfulness and fearfulness of the rumors which sometimes circulate there. For not only are whalemen as a body unexempt from that ignorance and superstitiousness hereditary to all sailors; but of all sailors, they are by all odds the most directly brought into contact with whatever is appallingly astonishing in the sea; face to face they not only eye its greatest marvels, but, hand to jaw, give battle to them. Alone, in such remotest waters, that though you sailed a thousand miles, and passed a thousand shores, you would not come to any chiseled hearth-stone, or aught hospitable beneath that part of the sun; in such latitudes and longitudes, pursuing too such a calling as he does, the whaleman is wrapped by influences all tending to make his fancy pregnant with many a mighty birth.

One psychologist says she can basically
make herself orgasm in her sleep.

No wonder, then, that ever gathering volume from the mere transit over the widest watery spaces, the outblown rumors of the White Whale did in the end incorporate with themselves all manner of morbid hints, and half-formed foetal suggestions of supernatural agencies, which eventually invested Moby Dick with new terrors unborrowed from anything that visibly appears. So that in many cases such a panic did he finally strike, that few who by those rumors, at least, had heard of the White Whale, few of those hunters were willing to encounter the perils of his jaw.
But there were still other and more vital practical influences at work. Not even at the present day has the original prestige of the Sperm Whale, as fearfully distinguished from all other species of the leviathan, died out of the minds of the whalemen as a body. There are those this day among them, who, though intelligent and courageous enough in offering battle to the Greenland or Right whale, would perhapseither from professional inexperience, or incompetency, or timidity, decline a contest with the Sperm Whale.

Olivia Palermo Takes Her Denim With a Side of Johannes in a Blazer

We couldn’t be happier that Olivia Palermo decided to step out right smack in the middle of the week, offering us outfit inspiration for Thursday, Friday, and weekend brunch.

Presently it swung full upon us andstopped. The tension on our nerves was near the breaking point, and I doubt if any of us breathed for the few moments he held us covered by his glass; and then he lowered it and we could see him shout a command to the warriors who had passed from our sight behind the ridge. He did not wait for them to join him, however, instead he wheeled his thoat and came tearing madly in our direction..

But now the sounds inside had ceased, and a thin circle of bright metal showed between the top and the body of the cylinder. Air was either entering or escaping at the rim with a thin, sizzling sound. They listened, rapped on the scaly burnt metal with a stick, and, meeting with no response, they both concluded the man or men inside must be insensible or dead. Of course the two were quite unable to do anything.

Henderson went into the railway station at once, in order to telegraph the news to London. The newspaper articles had prepared men’s minds for the reception of the idea. I found a little crowd of perhaps twenty people surrounding the huge hole in which the cylinder lay.

 

 

GREGG THE BUTCHER AND HIS LITTLE BOY

I think they perceived that nothing was to be done for the present, and had gone away to breakfast at Henderson’s house. There were four or five boys sitting on the edge of the Pit, with their feet dangling, and amusing themselves–until I stopped them–by throwing stones at the giant mass. After I had spoken to them about it, they began playing at “touch” in and out of the group of bystanders. Among these were a couple of cyclists, a jobbing gardener I employed sometimes, a girl carrying a baby, Gregg the butcher and his little boy, and two or three loafers and golf caddies who were accustomed to hang about the railway station. There was very little talking. Few of the common people in England had anything but the vaguest astronomical ideas in those days. Most of them were staring quietly at the big table like end of the cylinder, which was still as Ogilvy and Henderson had left it.

I fancy the popular expectation of a heap of charred corpses was disappointed at this inanimate bulk. Some went away while I was there, and other people came. I clambered into the pit and fancied I heard a faint movement under my feet.

It was only when I got thus close to it that the strangeness of this object was at all evident to me. At the first glance it was really no more exciting than an overturned carriage or a tree blown across the road. Not so much so, indeed. It looked like a rusty gas float. It required a certain amount of scientific education to perceive that the grey scale of the Thing was no common oxide, that the yellowish-white metal that gleamed in the crack between the lid and the cylinder had an unfamiliar hue.

 

 

WELCOME TO NEW YORK

“He pays reg’lar,” was the rejoinder. “But come, it’s getting dreadful late, you had better be turning flukesit’s a nice bed; Sal and me slept in that ere bed the night we were spliced.

But I got a dreaming and sprawling about one night, and somehow, Sam got pitched on the floor, and came near breaking his arm. Arter that, Sal said it wouldn’t do.
