Fashola Commissions 2.9km Yaya Abatan Road On Democracy Day

The Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola, on Thursday the 29th of May 2014 handed over the upgraded and rehabilitated 2.9 kilometre Yaya Abatan Road to the People of the State.
The governor used the occasion to thank the people for their patience and endurance.
He also warned the citizen to desist from using the walkways as a trading zone, stating that while the main road served motorists, the walkway was meant for pedestrians, “who also have a right to use the road.”
Urging the residents to take ownership of the road, the governor advised against dumping of refuse into the drains, saying that the people owed it a duty to protect the drains by ensuring that “they clean and make them free flowing.” Fashola thanked all tax payers in the state for paying their taxes regularly, adding that if they had not been paying the taxes, the government might have been waiting for funds from the Federal Government to deliver the project.

Breaking! All European newborn Babies will be Microchipped from May 2014

On May 2014, through Europe newborn children will be compelled to take in a subcutaneous RFID chip.
Public clinics in the European Union are to be alerted. The chip in inquiry will be contributed with the report sheet on the newborn.
Detailed Analysis

Social media feeds and email inboxes are currently being inundated by a supposed news report that claims that all babies born within the European Union will be implanted with a subcutaneous RFID chip beginning in May 2014.

The report claims that the implanted chips will contain GPS technology that allow a direct connection to a satellite. Supposedly, public clinics in Europe are being alerted about the new requirements and a "report sheet" for each microchipped baby will be provided.

But, of course, the claims in the message are utter nonsense. The report is pure fiction with not even the most tenuous connection to the truth. Babies in Europe - or anywhere else in the world - are not set to receive mandatory microchipping.

How does "bulletproof" glass work?

At first glance, bullet-resistant glass looks identical to an ordinary pane of glass, but that's where the similarities end. An ordinary piece of glass shatters when struck by a single bullet. Bullet resistant glass is designed to withstand one or several rounds of bullets depending on the thickness of the glass and the weapon being fired at it. So, what gives bullet-resistant glass the ability to stop bullets?
Different manufacturers make different variations of bullet-resistant glass, but it is basically made by layering a polycarbonate material between pieces of ordinary glass in a process called lamination. This process creates a glass-like material that is thicker than normal glass. Polycarbonate is a tough transparent plastic -- often known by the brand name Lexan, Tuffak or Cyrolon. Bullet-resistant glass is between 7 millimeters and 75 millimeters in thickness. A bullet fired at a sheet of bullet-resistant glass will pierce the outside layer of the glass, b…

50 Cent's Son, Marquise has taken to social media to vent his anger on his dad for not being present at his high school graduation, "Yea I broke down. I was really excited to see my pops at my graduation but he never showed up smh. My sister and mama is always there for me just know that you wasn't. I did it without you." he wrote.
But 50 has come out to clear himself that he didnt miss out intentionally but his baby mama blocked him from attending.
Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ, Fiddy is extremely hurt and upset by the photo his son Marquise Jackson posted on Facebook Sunday crying in his cap and gown while hugging his mother.

We're told 50 spent last weekend in NYC for a charity event.

Pregnant Woman Sentenced To Death For Being A Christian

KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) — A pregnant Sudanese woman who married a Christian man was sentenced to death Thursday after she refused to recant her Christian faith, her lawyer said.
Meriam Ibrahim, whose father was Muslim but mother was an Orthodox Christian from Ethiopia, was convicted of "apostasy" on Sunday and given four days to repent and escape death, said lawyer Al-Shareef Ali al-Shareef Mohammed.
The 26 year old, who is eight months pregnant, was sentenced after that grace period expired, Mohammed said.
Amnesty International immediately condemned the sentence, calling it "abhorrent." The U.S. State Department said it was "deeply disturbed" by the sentencing and called on the government to respect the right to freedom of religion.
Mohammed, the lawyer, called the conviction rushed and legally flawed since the judge refused to hear key defense witnesses and ignored constitutional provisions on freedom of worship and equality among citizens.

Beyonce, Jay Z And Solange Say They've 'Worked Through' Private Issues That Caused Elevator Fight

NEW YORK (AP) — Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange say "families have problems and we're no different" after a video leaked of Beyonce's sister attacking the rap mogul in a hotel elevator.
In an exclusive statement to The Associated Press on Thursday, the trio said they have worked through their differences and moved on since the video emerged this week showing Solange kicking Jay Z as Beyonce looked on.

But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it," the statement said. "Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family."

10 Foods You Should Never Keep In The Fridge

When it comes to storing food properly, there are many conventions that some people swear by and others will argue 'til the end of time. Do you store bread in the fridge, freezer or in a bread box? Should you store tomatoes in the fridge or on your countertop?
One of the most-discussed foods in the food storage domain is butter. People have long debated whether or not and how long to keep butter out of the refrigerator. Butter straight from the fridge is too hard to spread, and what good is that? As with many culinary debates, there's not really a cut-and-dry answer. According to the USDA, you should store butter in its wrapper in the fridge and keep butter out only for 10 to 15 minutes before using, but some cooks will use butter after leaving it out for a week. Because butter is made from pasteurized milk, the chances of contamination are low, says cooking blog The Kitchn. There's always a risk, however. Salted butter, because of its salt content and water …
