Tragic story of a father who lost his brother and son, 12, to cancer in the same week

Tragic story of a father who lost his brother and son, 12, to cancer in the same week

A father was left devastated after his son died in his arms four days after his brother passed away.

Chris Bacon, of Oldham, Manchester, lost both his 12-year-old son Jett and big brother Tim to cancer in May 2016. Jett died a year after being diagnosed with rare bone cancer Ewing’s Sarcoma. Tim, 52, had battled lymphoma, cancer in the blood cells, for 14 years, but in his last two years had developed melanoma.

 

Recalling the worst week of his life, Chris, 48, said: "To watch your loved ones die in front of you, and Tim was my best buddy, but to watch your own son take his last breath, you can’t ever get over that. It’s incomprehensible really, you wouldn’t wish it on your worst enemy."

Chris, a father-of-five originally from Australia, added: "It’s still very emotional, I cry every day. But I know Tim is looking after Jett now."

 

 

Chris said that while he and his older brother openly talked about death, it still came as a shock.

He said: "He [Jett] had a terrible time. That whole period was the most traumatic period of my whole life. What kept me strong was my phone calls to Tim every morning. I miss those calls.

"Tim left us, but he wasn’t allowed to go before Jett. That was our little pact. I said to Tim, 'don’t go before Jett, do us a favour'. He said, 'Chris, I’m not going anywhere, I’ve told the doctors'. But then he went and four days later my son died.

"I went to see Tim to give him a cuddle, and then I went and stayed with my son.’

 

 

He said of his brother: "Tim was my big brother, I loved him dearly, he was so charismatic. Tim was the smooth operator, he walked in the room, and everyone would take notice. He was a legend wasn’t he? I tried to copy him."

Men are contributing to joblessness and luring women into cheap prostitution - Nollywood actress, Liz Anjorin

Nollywood actress, Liz Anjorin in a lenghty post on IG blamed men for leading alot of ladies into cheap prostitution and joblessness.

 

According to the Yoruba actress, 'some men are like BOLAR (those guys that picks dirty and rotten irons): even when they see gold or diamond, even things that can help their life, they will rather mash it together and sell it to recycling company. As a female child from a humble or hidden background, you will definitely face a lot of rejection and heartbreaking from men. Parent and Govt. should work more on male child bcos the rate men are jumping from one girl to another is too alarming'.

23 Ugandan radio stations shut down for ‘promoting witchcraft’

23 Ugandan radio stations shut down for ‘promoting witchcraft’

No fewer than  23 radio stations have been sut down by Ugandan authorities for “promoting witchcraft’’ and trying to con people out of money.

 

The stations’ licencses were suspended after they had guests on air who claimed they could heal diseases like HIV, Pamela Ankunda, the Uganda Communications Commission spokesperson revealed.

 

“The radios have been promoting witchcraft. People claimed on these radios to cure diseases like AIDS and cancer . These people have been fraudulently getting money from the public. Their operations and licences have been suspended until they are able to assure the commission through writing that they will abide by the minimum broadcasting standards,’’ Ankunda said.

 

She said that Uganda has 292 radio stations, mostly privately-owned and its common for various religious leaders, self-proclaimed prophets and traditional healers in Africa to claim being able to cure HIV and other incurable diseases through their platforms.

Women are more likely to orgasm when they have sex with other women, new study reveals

Women are more likely to orgasm when they have sex with other women, new study reveals

According to a new report, women are more likely to orgasm when they have sex with other women than when they have sex with men.

This revelation comes from an exclusive report from The Sun, which takes note from a survey of 2,300 people around the world. Researchers found that women are more likely to orgasm during same-sex encounters, with some women who have sex with women reporting having orgasms as many as 55 times a month. Straight women, on the other hand, said they experience around 7 orgasms a month.

Dr Kristen Jozkowski, from the University of Arkansas, explains that this is likely because women having sex with other women tend to do more things than just penetrative sex – their sex is "excitingly diversified".

Basically, this means that when women have sex with other women, the focus isn’t on rushing into penetration; it’s about exploring pleasure through oral, fingering, sex toys, and other stuff that many straight couples dismiss as optional foreplay.

The stats on orgasm gaps have been around for quite some time. A study from Chapman University, Indiana University, and the Kinsey Institute found that straight women are less likely than any other demographic to have an orgasm during sex.

A study of more than 52,000 adults found that while heterosexual men reported that they orgasm 95% of the time they have sex, heterosexual women orgasm just 65% of the time – and only 33% of heterosexual women said they have an orgasm every time they have sex, versus 75% of men who could say the same. That’s not because the female orgasm is much harder to achieve, to be clear.

Lesbian women reported that they orgasm 86% of the time, while bisexual women orgasm 66% of the time. So again, a woman’s likelihood to orgasm drops pretty significantly if she’s having sex with a man rather than a woman.

This study found that the reasons for this are pretty simple: when a woman has sex with another woman, she’s more likely to have oral sex, she’s more likely to have sex for a longer period of time, and she’s more likely to try different sex positions – all of which are factors associated with increased orgasms.

Tokunbo said he and other young men had to look for a dark spot around some stalls in the abbatoir to hide out till the raid was over. He said about 400 men were taken away to the Police headquarters in Ikeja where they were slammed with murder charges and thrown into cell without food or water.

 

Those who couldn't prove their innocence have allegedly been taken to Potoki prison in Badagry where they remain till date.

Lagos dumpsite gutted by 'unusual' fire

Lagos dumpsite gutted by 'unusual' fire

Lagos State's most famous dumpsite at Olusosun, Ojota was gutted by fire on Wedneday evening, leaving residents, motorists and commuters in panic.  

 

Thick black smoke could be seen far from the site, located near the old Lagos Toll Gate. The unusual fire triggered a heavy traffic jam in the area, according to witnesses.  

 

Adesina Tiamiyu, the General Manager of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) told the News Agency of Nigeria  on Wednesday, that the cause of the fire outbreak was yet to be ascertained.  

 

Tiamiyu said that what was of utmost importance was to stop the fire, so that it does not extend to the LAGBUS Terminus. He said that the fire started around 4pm and there was no casualty.  

According to him, the emergency response team, the Lagos Fire Service, the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) were at the site to curtail the fire.  NAN reports that the Lagos State Government has said that the Olusosun and other dumpsites will be closed down, as part of the Cleaner Lagos Initiative (CLI). The government, through an Environmental Utility Firm, Visionscape Sanitation Solutions, has commenced the construction of the first engineered sanitary landfill in Epe, to ensure better waste management.  

 

‘Cleaner Lagos’, a Twitter handle of the Ministry of Environment explained the possible cause of the fire: ”It is necessary to clarify that the fire at Olusosun dumpsite wasn’t deliberately set by the Lagos state government or any individual. It broke out as a result of the pockets of unstable gases caused by indiscriminate dumping and further compounded by dry weather”.

Governor Ambode swears-in two new Permanent Secretaries (Photos)

Governor Ambode swears-in two new Permanent Secretaries (Photos)

Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode on Wednesday swore-in two new Permanent Secretaries with a charge on the appointees to lead by example and be champions of growth mindset in public service.    

 

The State Government had recently launched a special advocacy campaign to engender growth mindset among civil servants and imbue them with the right skills and attitude to contribute to the efforts to fast-track development and set the State on the path of sustainable and inclusive growth.    

 

Speaking at a brief swearing-in ceremony held at Lagos House in Alausa, Ikeja, Governor Ambode charged the new appointees Mrs Ayinde Rhoda Olubusola, and Mr Olusanya Ebenezer Abayomi, to key into the template already created for the civil service designed to stimulate change of mindset and the infusion of innovation and creativity in government business.    

He said: “every appointment comes with higher responsibilities and expectations. For the Lagos State Public Service, a template has been developed and it is being implemented systematically. Essentially, the template is about change of mindset and the infusion of innovation and creativity in government business. As members of the top echelon of the Public Service, you are expected to be champions of this paradigm shift not only by words but by your actions. You must lead by example and create the environment for your subordinates to emulate high standards of performance. This is the only way we can build a public service for the future and one that has what it takes to facilitate the level of development required of a Smart City.”    

 

While congratulating the Permanent Secretaries on their well-deserved appointments, Governor Ambode expressed confidence in their ability to succeed in their new assignments. He added that though the exercise had become a regular ceremony to fill vacancies, concerted efforts must be made to resist the temptation to see it as a routine but a solemn commitment to live up to expected standards.    

“Although this exercise has become a regular ceremony due to the vacancies created from time to time as a result of retirement of office holders, we must resist the temptation to view it as mere routine with no serious significance attached. On the contrary, it is a solemn occasion in which a commitment is made before God and man to live up to expected standards,” the Governor said.    

 

Besides, Governor Ambode thanked the former Permanent Secretaries whose retirement necessitated the appointment and swearing-in of the new appointees, for their contributions to the civil service. While Ayinde has been posted to the Office of Establishment and Training as Permanent Secretary, Olusanya is to assume office as Permanent Secretary/Tutor General, Education District II.

Sahara Reporters publisher, calls out Bukola Saraki after GoFundMe suspended him from raising campaign funds on its site

Sahara Reporters publisher, calls out Bukola Saraki after GoFundMe suspended him from raising campaign funds on its site

A few days ago, Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore opened a GoFundMe account with the intention of crowd-sourcing funds of up to $2 million dollars for his presidential campaign in Nigeria.

 

GoFundMe has however taken down the page and suspended him from using the platform to raise political funds.

 

According to Sowore who shared the news,'GoFundMe Just Alerted Us To The Suspension Of Our Fundraising Efforts On Their Platform! Apparently, our opponents have panicked and massively reported the fundraising effort considering how successful it was. There is no going back!'.

 

Sowore then went on to attack the Senate President, Bukola Saraki saying he's the one behind the suspension of the account.

He said,

'It just came to my notice that the Kwara thief who leads the Nigerian Senate and his apprentices were behind the reporting of our GoFundMe fundraising as "Fraud". We learned he panicked soon as he saw that Nigerians were supporting our Revolutionary Movement.  This Act In Itself Will Not Delay His Day Of Judgement'.

Meek Mill reportedly one step closer to being released on bail

Meek Mill reportedly one step closer to being released on bail

 

Philadelphia rapper, Meek Mill who is serving to 2-4 years in state prison for violating probation from his 2009 drug and weapons case, is reportedly one step closer to being released on bail.

The good news from the District AttorneyLarry Krasner's office comes after the rapper's mother, Kathy Williams publicly pleaded with the attorney to “step in” and help her son.

 

On Wednesday, the Philadelphia District Attorney's office said it’s not against letting rapper Meek Mill out of prison on bail as he appeals his conviction.

This also follows the police corruption scandal surrounding Meek's arresting officer who reportedly lied under oath, according to documents acquired by the Daily News.

 

Prosecutors confirmed that the arresting officer was among those prosecutors from the previous administration who tried to keep off the witness stand because of credibility questions. 

Prosecutors point out hundreds of previous convictions have already been overturned, and they think Meek will follow suit, shortly.

According to the prosecutors, they see no reason for Meek to be held without bail.

Reacting to the positive feedback from the Philadelphia District Attorney, Meek's mother told TMZ: "I would like to thank the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office for carefully evaluating my son’s matter and not opposing the request for bail. The fact that Robert’s entire conviction could be overturned is a blessing and I pray that God gives Judge Brinkley the wisdom to make the right decision and allow my son to return home to his family. I truly believe justice will prevail.”

Teenager commits suicide over low JAMB score in Delta

Teenager commits suicide over low JAMB score in Delta

A teenager in Ekiugbo community in Ughelli North of Delta State, has allegedly committed suicide after finding out she had low scores in the just concluded Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME). 

 

The teenager simply identified as Loveth became very depressed after she found out she scored 163 which is inadequate for her to study Medicine in the university. 

She reportedly drank three bottles of a dangerous insecticide known as Sniper and was found dead yesterday morning at her home where she resides with her parents.

 

A relative of the deceased, who spoke under condition of anonymity to the Nation, said her parents, who believed their daughter could still be revived, made last minute efforts to save her life.

“She was said to have scored about 163 in the JAMB exam. When she got home from where she had gone to check her result, her father told her that the score was too low to study Medicine. The father even assured her that she could get admission with the result into a polytechnic. After the discussion with her father, she was said to have left for her mother’s shop, which is some few metres away and secretly collected the three bottles of Sniper to drink. She drank all three bottles found in her room. According to what her parents told us, she didn’t show any form of premonition that she was going to kill herself. When she was not seen in the sitting room, they went to check her in her room but she was dead. Nobody knows why she killed herself ,” the family source said


Her remains have been deposited at the state morgue.

'Fake marriages are now taking place in Nigeria'' Immigration boss, Muhammad Babandede, says

''Fake marriages are now taking place in Nigeria'' Immigration boss, Muhammad Babandede, says

The comptroller general of the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS), Muhammad Babandede, has said that a lot of fake marriages are taking place between Nigerians and foreigners in the country.

 

According to Babandede, male foreigners are the ones that are mostly involved in the sham marriages. They come into Nigeria just to get married to a Nigerian woman so they can easily get a residence permit.

The Immigration boss disclosed this when he spoke at the Zonal Coordinators and State Comptrollers of the agency's meeting held at its national headquarters in Abuja yesterday March 14th.

We have observed that foreigners, especially men, are trying to beat the system of issuance of residence permits. A lot of fake or `arrangee’ marriages are going on, and that would give them permission to stay in this country without much liabilities. The advantage is that when you are the spouse of a Nigerian, you have no limitation on the job you will do; you don’t have to pay residence permit fees; it is easier for you to stay. So, we are beginning to face difficulties because many people are becoming married on temporary ground'’ Babandede said.
 


Speaking further, Babandede said

We will not allow any person to come for holiday marriage, because we have also observed that people just come on holidays, arrange marriages in Nigeria and go back. Read also ; Nigerians arrested over fake marriage “We will not allow that anymore; you have to stay for a period of six months after marriage before you get our residence permit. “You have to also enter with permission to stay in Nigeria, so you must come with the residency visa; you can’t come as a tourist and get married,’’ .
