Cheating on your lover will kill you, Medically - Research

It is news likely to bring an ironic smile to the lips of many a scorned spouse – adultery is bad for the heart.
A wealth of studies show that men who cheat on their wives risk not only their marriage but also their cardiac health.
Liaisons away from home and with younger women are particularly dangerous.
The warnings come from Italian researchers who reviewed previous studies on the causes of infidelity and its effects.
These showed ‘sudden coital death’ to be much more common when a man was meeting his mistress than when he was with his wife.
The researchers can’t be sure why but put forward a variety of reasons, including a guilty conscience.
The review’s authors, from the University of Florence, began by scouring medical literature for research papers including the words “unfaithfulness”, “extramarital affairs”, “infidelity” and “men”.
This provided information about the type of man who is unfaithful and the potential consequences.
The analysis showed that heart attacks, including fatal ones, were relatively rare when a man was having sex with his wife at home. But when he started to play away, the dangers grew.
German studies show that most men who died during sex were having an affair and meeting away from the family home. Furred-up arteries were blamed for more than a third of the deaths – the physical demands of sex is said to cause the fatty plaque that has built up inside arteries to rupture.

Big Brother: Mampi takes her big bakasi out of the house

 Ok guys usually dont care whats going on in the Big brother house. But once in a while when we find ourselves caught watching the show, the main attraction is the ladies. Mampi and her behind(which she knows how to throw around) is one of the reasons some guys stay glued for a bit longer.
Mampi became the first Upville housemate to be evicted from Big Brother StarGame on Sunday night. The Zambian was sent home after receiving the fewest country votes from Africa this week. She was also the most-nominated Upville housemate, with 6 nominations from her peers.
Having had a week off from the pressures of a looming eviction, normal service resumed in Downville as the random nomination process returned – leaving Ghana’s Mildred and Keitta and Botswana’s Edith and Eve up for eviction this week.

The Monalisa Chinda, Joe Ben relationship

Joseph Benjamin popularly known as Joe Ben is definitely one of the hottest single male actors in the industry. It is common knowledge that many actresses had tried to get the better side of him, but the smooth player is always so elusive. He hardly hangs out after any shoot. He quickly disappears from the set whenever his takes are over.
Though he is not known with any lasting relationships, there has always been a suspicion that he and Monalisa Chinda has a special relationship. The two had been casted as lovers and married couple in recent times, and have been on various set together in many other movies. Though it is hard to pin-point, there seem to be chemistry between the two. Joseph and Monalisa are always having time out together in between shoots. When there is a break, they usually don’t stay with other actors, but with each other, chatting away.
In a chat, Joe confirms his likeness for Monalisa Chinda, though he claims it is merely a professional thing. “Working with Monalisa Chinda has been amazing, I can’t explain what I feel but there’s something about her that makes her stand out. She is just a great person. I have worked with her before and would love to work with her over and over again.” Obsession you might say.
Monalisa Chinda, had been married once to Dejo Richard, a musician and business man, and the marriage produced a daughter. A year after they parted ways, Dejo Richards got married to an American based cousin of Hip Hop World’s Ayo Animashaun.
Speaking of divorces in Nollywood, Joe says; “It’s because the actresses in question are married to people outside lime light, for me the thing called marriage is not worth rushing into. Some get married for wrong reasons which lead to physical abuse and the only way out is to separate,” he said.

16yrs old genius solves 300yrs old mathematics problem

A GERMAN 16-year-old has become the first person to solve a mathematical problem posed by Sir Isaac Newton more than 300 years ago.
Shouryya Ray worked out how to calculate exactly the path of a projectile under gravity and subject to air resistance, The (London) Sunday Times reported.
The Indian-born teen said he solved the problem that had stumped mathematicians for centuries while working on a school project.
Mr Ray won a research award for his efforts and has been labeled a genius by the German media, but he put it down to "curiosity and schoolboy naivety".
"When it was explained to us that the problems had no solutions, I thought to myself, 'well, there's no harm in trying,'" he said.
Mr Ray's family moved to Germany when he was 12 after his engineer father got a job at a technical college. He said his father instilled in him a "hunger for mathematics" and taught him calculus at the age of six.
Mr Ray's father, Subhashis, said his son's mathematical prowess quickly outstripped his own considerable knowledge.

meet 69 old twins prostitutes

IT'S hard to say for sure, but we're willing to take a punt that Louise and Martine Fokkens are the oldest twin sister prostitutes in the world.
And now the sisters - who share a gleeful sense of humour as well as a profession - are the subject of a new documentary film.
The 69-year-old Fokken sisters have more than 80 years experience between them working in Amsterdam's notorious Red Light District.
“I can't tell you how many tricks we've had,” says Louise. “Countless.”
Although Louise retired two years ago, age 67, due to arthritis ("I couldn't get one leg over the other."), Martine is still working in her window, often dressed as a dominatrix.
“She needs the money,” says Louise. "You can't live off a state pension."

Who would Michelle Obama be if she could be anyone?


"It looks like musicians just have the most fun," Obama said in an interview with People magazine.

She admitted, though, that there's one thing she's lacking - being musically gifted.

The first lady also revealed a bedtime ritual with her husband, the president: He tucks her in at night.

"I'm usually in bed before anybody," the first lady said. "He'll come and turn the lights out and give me a kiss, and we'll talk. He's like, 'Ready to be tucked?' I'm like, 'Yes, I am'."
Obama did the interview in connection with the release next week of her new gardening book American Grown.

Prophet arrested for rebuilding 'house of God'

A ‘prophet’ with the Cherubim and Seraphim Church was yesterday forced to demolish the church he erected near the Ijora-Olopa bridge in Lagos State, Southwest Nigeria.
The area was again raided by men of the government task force two weeks after they had earlier demolished all illegal structures and shanties under the bridge. The task force officials said they received information that area boys and miscreants had gone back to the area and had begun living under the bridge again.
When the task force officials arrived, many of the area boys, including the ‘prophet’, were caught unawares as some of them were sleeping in their makeshift apartments.
They were all forced to quit while the task force officials confiscated their properties which they later threw away. (Metro news)

They believe that it is good and bad at the same time. the second largest group of voters are those who do not care about what happens to Funke Akindele.

But the hold up at Mobolaji Bank Anthony way could not let me get to the arrival of MMA on time. With several calls to MNET, I was able to have a brief chat with the two this afternoon.
The duo were all bubbly and full of life. You would not know that they had just gave up the chance to win N45,000,000. It was more than normal. It was more like the demeanor of two young men who has resigned to faith. Looking very closely at Ola, you could see underneath his "it is no big deal" attitude, there was a deep concern there.

Tonto breaks 2 packets a day cigarette addiction

After many years of denials, controversial actress, Tonto Dike has finally agreed that she was indeed a smoker. She accepted the allegations by claiming she has just quit smoking. On her Tweeter page, on Monday morning, she said that she had good news for her friends and well wishers, then she announced that she had quit smoking.
"I have good news for those who wish me well.  It's a silly good news but you all are going to love this. I quit smoking.” Despite her numerous denials, those close to her knew that cigarette smoking was becoming a problem to her. She was said to finish a pack of 20 sticks before noon every day. The effect of it is clear from her voice, and darks lips which she easily covers up with lipstick.
Last year, Tonto was in a bitter war with fellow actor, Van Vicker when she reportedly puffed cigarette at. Many of her colleagues had been advising her to cut down on the habit. Though industry people were aware of her addiction, she would fight tooth and nail with anyone who says she does smoke. She had rained insults on a journalist who reported on her smoking habit, while maintaining that she does not smoke. So it came as a shock when she tweeted that she did not only reduce, but claims to have totally stopped smoking all together.
Tonto came into the industry in 2006 with a daring start. She had like her colleague, Cossy, showed some skin, to get attention. Unlike Cossy though, she did not do it wildly, she acted timid with an innocent looking face. She quickly got attention. Today, she has proven that she is indeed a good actress, and she has over 50 movies to her credit. 

Woman sacked for having big breasts

A New Jersey woman said on Monday that she was dismissed from a temporary job at a New York lingerie warehouse because her male employers felt she was too busty and dressed too provocatively for the workplace.
Wearing a form-fitting sequined black dress and black leather, sequin-studded boots, Lauren Odes, 29, said her Orthodox Jewish employers at Native Intimates told her that outfit and others like it were "too hot" for the warehouse.
"We should not be judged by the size of our breasts or the shape of our body," Odes said.
Odes's attorney, celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, said she filed a gender and religious discrimination complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in New York.
Odes said she felt her wardrobe was appropriate for a business that sells "thongs with hearts placed in the female genital area and boy shorts for women that say 'hot' in the buttocks area."
Media photographers climbed on chairs and crashed into each other as Odes held a pose and Allred held up a series of purple, black and brown outfits she said also led to the woman's dismissal.
Odes said that on successive days during her week-long employment in late April she was warned that her attire was too alluring, that her breasts should be taped down to make them look smaller, and that she was asked to wear a red bathrobe to cover one outfit.

Joseph Benjamin, Funke Akindele married but living single

Nigerian movies usually have good stories but the production is always wrong. Except for a few of the. This is mostly because they are low budget. Watching Married living single however has changed my mentality. One can actually achieve good quality at a tight budget. Not that it was a cheap film, one could tell that the producer used good hands, and the output shows for it.
The media unveil was held during the week and the movie held journalists spell bound. Of course only a part of the movie was shown, and the question on everybody’s mouth was, ‘when will it get to the cinemas’. According to Ayo Akindele the Publicist to the distributors, Blue pictures’ She explained that the movie will be out first on cinema from Monday and might later go on CD.
From the synopsis, the movie is all about relationships and how different folks get different strokes. First was a couple who had everything, money, good job and healthy children, but the wife (acted by Funke Akindele was such a workaholic and did not have time for her family. The husband (Joseph Benjamin) soon got fed up and thing started changing in the erstwhile peaceful home. The other home was that of a man who beats his wife at every opportunity, he too soon got what was coming to him.
The movie was the first I had seen Funke Akindele acting in English and also as a corporate woman. One could see her struggle with the role a bit, but she eventually caught the bug, and it was smooth sailing for her. Joseph Benjimine on his part was a little bit laid back, a big contrast to his usually sharp demeanour. That usually is the lot of self-employers as he portrayed in the movie.

Why Ola and Chris crashed out of Big Brother

In what must have been a heart wernching decision for the the Nigerian duo, Ola and Chris have both had to leave the Big Brother house.
Why this voluntary departure? Well, Ola has a medical condition that is forcing is blood pressure to dangerously high levels. In order to seek proper medical attention, he has to leave the house. And, as per the game rules, this means that Chris automatically has to the leave the house as well.
It was a teary farewell as they told the Downville house at large. Shocked laughter greeted the announcement, as most of their housemates thought it was a joke. However reality sunk in and soon the laughter turned to tears. Junia in particular had a hard time, as she and Ola had become particularly close over the 12 days (is it just 12 days?).

Etoo makes Forbes list

That Samuel Eto'o is the highest earning African footballer is really not news, the Anzhi Makhachkala striker struck pay day with his move to Russia last year.
The surprising transfer to the Eastern European country effectively made the former Inter and Barcelona forward the highest paid footballer on earth.The May edition of Forbes Africa has listed the Cameroonian’s weekly wages as $554,000, and $28.5 million annually.
This dwarfs the annual salary of second-placed Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure who previously held the top spot. Toure takes home an annual salary of $17.6m and is the highest paid player in the English Premier League.
Yaya confirmed his billing with his recent exploits that helped the Citizens win their first league title in 44 years.
Tottenham Hotspur’s Emmanuel Adebayor comes in third place with an annual salary of $14m. His weekly wages are put at $268,000.

EFCC to battle JAMB exam malpractice

Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has approached the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for assistance in curbing malpractice in the conduct of public examinations in Nigeria.
JAMB Registrar and Chief Executive, Dibu Ojerinde, on Wednesday made this appeal when he paid the EFCC chairman, Ibrahim Lamorde, a courtesy visit in his office.
A statement from the anti-graft agency said Ojerinde noted that the most challenging issue confronting JAMB is the issue of examination malpractice.
He explained that although the mandate of JAMB is to conduct credible and valid examinations free of malpractice, the rising spate of sharp practices among students has become a cause for concern.
