#New Nigeria Dream- a dream we must all embrace... pls read this!


Are you are an Activist, a Politician, a Civilian, a Blogger , a Change maker, a Media house, a voice on social media, are you a Nigerian? Then one attribute we must all embrace at this time is the power of a vision/dream. The ability to see beyond our present circumstance and believe even in the face of contrary evidence that Nigeria will rise again! Nigeria will not just rise above her problems but She will rise as the Giant of Africa and a force to be reckoned with in the world's economy. Yes we can!

Yes we can have politicians who will put up a fight, a fight not of blows, beats or for ‘National cake’ but a fight for Justice, Peace, Freedom and for the right of the very people who elected them.

Yes we can have a New Nigeria! Where the solution for over population is not daily insurgencies that leaves us with the fear of a non-existing Nation if God does not intervene. Yes I see a Nation where the attempt to solve unemployment is not death and injuries. But a Nigeria that is secured and can gainfully employ its citizens is what I see.

Lupita Nyong'o's $150K Oscar Gown stolen from her hotel room.

On the one hand, you want your dress to get a lot of attention at the Oscars. Those pictures last forever, and a great dress lands you on all the right lists and in all the right headlines. But it turns out there is such a thing as too much positive attention: you don’t want so much that someone sets out to steal it!

Lupita Nyong'o's white Calvin Klein gown might have earned the most buzz on Sunday night. The actress worked with designer Francisco Costa to create the the halter-neck silhouette, covered with over 6,000 natural pearls; the dress is worth approximately $150,000. “It was so much fun to create this dress. We talked about it being fluid and liquid. I wanted it to be an homage to the sea,” she told Yahoo Style. She wasn’t worried about losing a pearl or two—”They’re sewn on quite tightly.”—but maybe she should’ve worried about losing the whole thing?

The New York Daily News confirms a TMZ report that Nyong’o’s gown was stolen from her room at the London Hotel in West Hollywood on Tuesday. And since actresses rarely (if ever) own their red carpet gowns, the Oscar winner wasn’t even able to file a police report; Calvin Klein will have to do so. “We got a call at about 11:30 last night from someone at the London Hotel about a high value dress that was stolen from a hotel room,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Officer John Mitchell told the paper.

The bad news is that dozens of people had access to Nyong’o’s hotel room: hair stylists, makeup artists, managers, agents, friends, and stylists. The good news is that hotels have surveillance cameras and that dress looks particularly heavy, so it should be easy to catch the thief walking out of Nyong’o’s room with the dress. TMZ reports that the police are reviewing tape from 9AM to 8PM yesterday, when the actress wasn’t in the room. The sad truth is, it probably wouldn’t ever be worn again anyway.

'Jihadi John' from ISIS beheading videos unmasked as a Britain citizen.


Investigators believe that the "Jihadi John" masked fighter who fronted Islamic State beheading videos is a British man named Mohammed Emwazi, two U.S. government sources said on Thursday.

He was born in Kuwait and comes from a prosperous family in London, where he grew up and graduated with a computer programming degree, according to the Washington Post.

In videos released by Islamic State (IS), the black-clad militant brandishing a knife and speaking with an English accent appears to have decapitated hostages including Americans, Britons and Syrians.

The Washington Post said Emwazi, who used the videos to threaten the West and taunt leaders such as President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron, was believed to have traveled to Syria around 2012 and to have later joined IS.

True life love story of a couple who died together with hands joined.

This is not a movie or novel story, it's not like what you watched in "NoteBook" "Romeo and Julliet" etc.  It is a true life love story that tells there is power in love. When the marriage vow is taken, "Till death to us part" is usually the promise. But for this couple it is "Death cannot part us." They were married for 67 years, lived a simple life and did everything together. Let me not bore you, just read the story below:
 
The couple, who had been married for 67 years, died in their home in a very "Notebook"-like situation.

 As the two laid close to one another, Scharton and other immediate family members pushed their beds close together as they all knew the end was near. Continue.........

Amazing what American singer Robin Thicke did in court.

Robin Thicke
 American singing star Robin Thicke is sure a great talent and have a good sense of humor, but displaying all of that in a serious and tensed environment of a court room while he stands to defend himself is puzzling. Well like E! said this is a new approach.
 
Robin played the keyboard, sang and danced a little in court. According to E!
Robin Thicke took the stand on Wednesday in a Los Angeles court for his copyright trial against Marvin Gaye's children, which will decide whether his 2013 hit "Blurred Lines" infringed on Gaye's 1977 song "Gotta Give It Up."‎ Continue.....

Read General Buhari's full speech at Chatham House - Nigeria's Transition

Read the speech below...

Permit me to start by thanking Chatham House for the invitation to talk about this important topic at this crucial time. When speaking about Nigeria overseas, I normally prefer to be my country’s public relations and marketing officer, extolling her virtues and hoping to attract investments and tourists. But as we all know, Nigeria is now battling with many challenges, and if I refer to them, I do so only to impress on our friends in the United Kingdom that we are quite aware of our shortcomings and are doing our best to address them.

 The 2015 general election in Nigeria is generating a lot of interests within and outside the country. This is understandable. Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country and largest economy, is at a defining moment, a moment that has great implications beyond the democratic project and beyond the borders of my dear country.

Amazing! 10 year old Nigerian already in a University in the UK.


While the average child is still rounding up their primary studies, extraordinary ten year old Esther Okade is already sitting in for her degree course in the UK. Esther who is UK’s youngest students from Nigeria, has been accepted to start her maths degree at the Open University. Esther, who enrolled three weeks ago, is already top of her class, scoring 100 per cent in a recent test.

Esther’s mother, Efe, said the process of applying to the university was ‘an interesting one because of her age.

she said “We even had to talk to the VC and after they interviewed her, they realised that this has been her idea from the beginning. From the age of seven Esther has wanted to go to university.

“But I was afraid it was too soon. She would say, ‘mum, when am I starting?’, and go on and on and on. Finally, after three years, she told me, ‘mum I think it is about time I started university now.” 

Esther applied in August, and after a phone interview, an essay and a maths exam, she finally got the news in December that she had been accepted onto the course.

Though she watches cartoons and plays with barbie dolls, Esther’s aim is to get First Class honours degree in two years and start a PhD programme. She also intends to run her own bank.

HOME POWER.


As an Aesthete – someone with a special love/understanding of art and beautiful things, this topic is of utmost interest and importance to me.


If you were given an option not considering any limitations, what kind of life will you be living? Hey don’t look at Buckingham palace or some Prince Charles kind of life and wish it or give me an answer that fits someone else’s life that you are probably watching right now. Look inwards and answer this question – What kind of life will you be living, considering you have no limitations?



The Art of Living is actually putting into best use the potentials that you have around you and within you to create all that you want to or ought to be. No one will give to you what you deserve you have to make it happen with the God given potential that lies within you, I call it your home power.

Your home is actually a birthing place for all of your dreams and desires and also for all of the world’s solution for peace, harmony, justice and equality. Home Power is a concept that exists in all aspect of human existence….. Politics, Education, Business, Entertainment, Family, Media etc.

Can we take a closer look at our homes! More on this soon.
