E! presenter Giuliana Rancic to have breast surgically removed after cancer diagnosis

The 37yr old E! News presenter revealed during an interview on The Today Show, that she will have her breast surgically removed after doctors failed to 'get all the cancer out' when she underwent a double lumpectomy to remove cancerous growths in both breasts, last month.
She explained her decision:
To be honest, all it came down to was choosing to live and not looking over my shoulder for the rest of my life. It could have come back more aggressively next time, so for me it was just more important to get the cancer out.
With the double mastectomy I now have less than one per cent chance of getting it back, otherwise it was 20, 30 or 40 per cent chance and for me it wasn't worth it.
Giuliana was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months ago. God be with her!

Suspected ritualists dump baby in Festac swamp. Hands bound, baby organs removed

I am about to spoil your day...and I am sorry...but y'all need to see this. My goodness, some people will not die well, I swear! Read the story below, as reported by Sunnewsonline
Who are the parents of the baby girl that was dumped in a swamp by suspected ritualists at 6th Avenue, Festac, Lagos, on Monday?
This is the question agitating the minds of hundreds of people who besieged the area to catch a glimpse of the unfortunate baby. The bizarre act was carried out at about 12noon.
A close look at the baby whose arms were tied, revealed that her upper region was ripped open and some organs removed. Her mouth was also stuffed with some materials or items apparently used for the rituals.
The uncensored photo when you continue...but please be warned that the photo is gruesome, heartbreaking, and so painful to look at...if you don't have the heart, don't continue...

Chinedu and Nneoma Ikedieze cancel Dec 10th wedding

The couple who had their traditional wedding on Sat Nov 26th, have canceled their Sat Dec 10th white wedding. The new date is now Friday Dec 9th and they are keeping the venue secret. But it's at an RCCG parish somewhere in Lagos and reception still to hold at Essence Hotel in Ikoyi. Shhhh, don't say I told you, it's supposed to be secret...:-).

Reason for the new date is probably to manage the number of people who show up. They are only interested in close family and friends and have been sending out the new dates via phone calls and texts. I hear they are also planning a small and private reception party for only about 200 guests at a secret venue on Sat Dec 10th. All the best to them!

FRSC Van...Choi!

How in the world did this happen? Road safety people, I see you!...lol...*jokes*

Richard Branson opposes the new anti-gay law in Nigeria

Here's what the British Billionaire, who has some investments in Nigeria, wrote on his BLOG today...

Nigeria’s cruel anti-gay law - Richard Branson
Too sad to comprehend that Nigeria are passing a law in this day and age to put gay people in prison just for being gay.

The Prohibition of Same-Sex Marriage Bill passed through Nigeria’s Senate unopposed last week. It means gay couples entering into either marriage or cohabitation will be jailed for up to 14 years. Even people "witnessing" or "abetting" gay relationships could be punished under this sad, repressive and cruel law.

Like everyone else in society, gay people have an enormous amount to offer and Nigeria should embrace them not prosecute them.

All of us with influence in Nigeria must do what we can to stop this cruel law. I would urge educated Nigerians all over the world to do what they can to help fight this discrimination.
