ARRESTED : Nigerian nanny force-feeds baby to death in U.S

Oluremi Adeleye, a 73 nanny convicted of murder in the U.S. for force-feeding a baby milk has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

According to Washington Post, the septuagenarian was found guilty of child abuse and second-degree murder by Prince George’s County Circuit Court, Judge Karen Mason.

“While I don’t find the defendant is an evil-intentioned baby slayer, I also don’t find her actions were accidental.” Mason said before handing down the sentence.

Prince George’s County prosecutors argued that the nanny unscrewed the lid of a baby bottle and poured nearly eight ounces of milk down 8-month-old Enita Salubi’s throat.

Adeleye, a native of Nigeria, testified in her own defense at her trial that she was “cup-feeding” the baby to ensure it didn’t go hungry, a custom in her home country.

She and her attorneys said that she did not mean to hurt the child and that Enita’s death was a “tragic accident.”

Adeleye had others testify in her defense, saying that cup-feeding — pouring liquid in one’s hand to feed children when they do not want to eat but need to be fed — was common in Nigeria.

“Please forgive me. I didn’t mean to kill your child,” Oluremi said in court on the day the judgement was delivered.

The child had roused the nanny from a nap, and the girl essentially drowned in milk while in Adeleye’s care in Glenarden on Oct. 24, 2016, prosecutors said at trial.

Enita’s mother, Nikia Porter, said at the sentencing that she moved from the South Side of Chicago to escape gun violence that could have put her family in danger.

“I didn’t want to lose my child to a stray bullet…. I lost her to a formula.”

Adeleye, opted for a bench trial, in which a judge weighed her fate instead of a jury.

In finding Adeleye guilty of all the charges against her, Mason said Adeleye lied to homicide detectives in recorded interviews about whether she unscrewed the cap of the bottle to feed the child.

The shifting story, Mason said, demonstrated a “consciousness of guilt.”

HEALTH ISSUES : Reasons why your urine may smell

Sweet, honey-like urine may smell like you’re doing something right but it actually could be a sign that you have diabetes mellitus. As excess sugar spills into your urine, it creates a sweet, sugary smell (and taste). In this day and age, urologists run blood tests, not taste tests, to check for diabetes. But back in the 17th century, urologists would analyze urine samples for diabetes by using three of their senses: sight, smell, and taste. Thomas Mayo, a physician in 1675, described the taste of diabetic urine as “wonderfully sweet, as if it were imbued with honey or sugar.” A sweet taste and smell was typically a surefire sign that a patient had diabetes. If you notice any sudden unusual smells in your urine (good or bad), make an appointment with your doctor to get checked out. The smell of your pee and even the color of your pee are just a few of the strange symptoms that can signal a serious disease.

You ingest a lot of vitamin B-6

Sometimes your pee smells funny when you take certain kinds of multivitamins. If you get a big whiff of an unpleasant medicinal smell in your urine, your vitamin B-6 supplement may be to blame. Vitamins dissolve either in fat or water before they are absorbed by your body. Vitamin B-6 is water-soluble, which means it excretes into your urine. Not only does this give your urine a strange “multivitamin pill” odor, it can also turn your urine a fluorescent green or greenish-yellow hue. The good news is that these vitamin-induced urine smells are harmless, so you should keep taking your daily vitamin supplements.

Woman left with “disfigured” breasts after implants went wrong.

A woman said she nearly died after getting two botched boob jobs at a clinic she saw advertised on Instagram.

Holly McCulloch, of Greasby, Wirral, has been left with two mismatched breasts- a B-cup and a D-cup – after her implant surgery went horribly wrong in Turkey last July.

The 28-year-old said she booked into a clinic in Istanbul via Whatsapp after seeing an advert, reassured by ‘celebrities’ who were promoting it on Instagram.

She flew from Manchester to Istanbul, where she later paid £2,700 for her operation and a five-day all-inclusive villa stay.

Holly, who is 5ft 6in and a size 8, claims that when she told the doctor she wanted G-cup breasts he responded with a high-five and did not question anymore.

Without seeing the actual implant, she said: “I was anxious because it all felt strange and rushed, but I had made my decision and at the end of the day, more than anything I was just so excited.”

Four hours later, Holly was wheeled down to the operating theatre and the last thing she remembered before surgery was the doctor saying to her ‘you wake up with big boobies!’.

But Holly said she woke up in ‘absolute agony’.

“Each time [the nurse] touched me, I was in agony. It was like my chest was on fire – all I could do was sign for her to pass me my phone and I frantically typed into the translator ‘I can’t take anymore’,” she recalled.

She said the doctors came in and took her into the operating theatre again and when she woke up again, the implants were gone.

Holly was left devastated as she noticed her skin being stretched out from the huge implants and looking loose and saggy.

WORDS OF A FORMER CHAUVINIST: My Views on Feminism by Chiedozie Ude

I recently went through Chimamanda’s article on feminism and truth be told, I was convinced that it is an ideology worth practising, howbeit with a few exceptions and disagreements to certain things about it such as the desire to completely change things as they are, and of course, the name itself which I feel does not do justice to the human race in the larger picture. In my opinion which I know is shared by many, the rightful term for ‘Feminism’ should be ‘Egalitarianism’ which simply means ‘equality of all races, religions and sexes.’

Many may argue that every good campaign or ideology has a title which invigorates the emotions of the followers, thereby building in them an unflinching and diehard feeling of ‘No Retreat No Surrender Until Our Grievances Are Met.’ But the title ‘Feminism’ as I said earlier is not one that can bring up these feelings in many an Individual, most especially the men, due to the fact that it sounds too feminine and also because to many, it only covers the rights of women and their whims (which is actually not true).

Despite the fact that I know what feminism is all about, it leaves a bitter taste in the mouth whenever the realization of what it has turned out to be in a world already hanging precariously on a line as a result of segregation. Feminism is meant to unite us all instead of being an object of division and ridicule (it is not uncommon for people to scoff when you mention the word ‘feminism’) and political imbroglio just like other ideologies such as ‘Negritude’, ‘Zionism’ and ‘Nazism’ (I am really sorry for including Nazism due to the world’s history with the dreaded Adolf Hitler because feminism has never been as brutal but I hope you get my point.) because what most women call feminism is simply radicalism or a thin line from it. In this part of the world, violence by a woman on a man is usually branded as feminism, a woman neglecting her instinctive duties as a mother is also addressed as feminism or some may say ‘Women Revolution’. You will hear things like ‘after all, men have always been doing it’. But like I always say, ‘violence is violence, evil is evil no matter the perpetrator’

Just like negritude, feminism should not be about a particular set of people, it should be about humanity in general and the respect for people’s rights as individuals. Despite the fact that we are likely not going to get a name change to this ideology, I still agree with Chimamanda when she said ‘we should all be feminists’ because truly, the women have been marginalized by various nefarious laws from countless ages ago, and also, the status quo which we all met that automatically places a man ahead of a woman irrespective of their qualifications. Laws that brand females as weaker vessels were probably once useful in the days when brute strength was needed for survival. But in this generation, these laws are quite useless because the trait needed for survival is simply smartness and this trait is not exclusively reserved for any gender. Leadership positions and employment opportunities should be acquired by merit and not by gender, age or race.

All these changes we expect cannot happen in a twinkling of an eye because it is a gradual process and must be practiced systematically because a die hard African man or male chauvinist will surely take an exception to a radical change in the status quo. That is, the belief of male superiority over females.
The first step to ensure this idea is bought by the majority is through ‘home training’. Boy should be taught from a tender age that girls are not toys. I know a man (I am not going to mention his name so I will call him Mr X) who has four children; two girls and two boys. The sons of Mr X are allowed to keep girlfriends and do absolutely what ever they like while his daughters are literally imprisoned by him all in the name of protecting them. This experience made me ponder on a lot of things ‘Why was this man teaching his sons not to respect girls in the name of training them to be independent young men?’ ‘Who was he protecting his daughters from? Men like his sons?’ ‘Who is protecting the girls being used like hand rags by his sons?’ Sadly, most parents are guilty of this, and that is why we have boys who grow up into ‘wife beaters’ because the idea of superiority over women has been implanted in them.

Girls also should be taught never to be dependent on boys for anything most especially money because naturally, the person who pays the bills also calls the shots when it comes to decision making. While many a lady is out there trying to get what they deserve and also trying to implement the doctrine of equality to the world, we still have ladies posting on social media, supporting the idea but still expecting the man to shoulder all the financial burdens in the relationship (hypocrisy at its highest).

Therefore, it is the duty of every parent to teach their children respect for every gender by setting a good example for the children to follow.

Another problem facing feminism in Nigeria is called ‘BRIDE PRICE!’ While I agree with the notion that every man should pay a certain amount of money to the bride’s family as a sign of respect and regard for them and perhaps our culture, it should not be seen as an opportunity to literally rip the man off. We see a lot a families collecting huge amount of goods and cash from the groom and this automatically places the woman under his control and in most cases, she will live the rest of her life trying to always please her man at the expense of her goals in life. How will women be regarded if the practice of literally selling them off continues? It is high time we stopped selling ladies into marriage because a buyer can use his goods the way he wants.

Feminism is surely going to be much more effective in our part of the world if certain things are fazed out such as the extra bit of affection awarded to male children over their female siblings, the unnecessary rigours men go through to marry in the name of bride price, and the existing state of affairs which brands it as the responsibility of every man to single-handedly pay the bills in every relationship.

Woman suffers and dies of stroke during sex

Medics at West Middlesex University Hospital in Isleworth, west London, said the patient was unconscious for three minutes after first suffering a headache during oral sex.

And her partner, whose gender is unknown, said they noticed “her body was stiff”.

“On closer history taking, the patient reported nearing orgasm while receiving oral sex from her partner before losing consciousness,” doctors this week wrote in the British Medical Journal .

“She had been otherwise well preceding the event.”

She had been former diagnosed of malaria in the brain, and occasionally seen to be a chain, smoker and asthmatic but all were not linked to the cause of her sickness rather it was really revealed that high orgasm and sex was part of the cause of her sickness.

Speaking in the video, which Kynlee’s mother sent to Fox 2 Now, the mom can be heard asking her daughter about her day at school.

‘What happened at school?’ she asked.Kynlee replied: ‘I took a headlock down on Jack and took him down.”You took him down?’ her mom asked, sounding slightly surprised – while her daughter nodded to confirm.

When her mother asked Kynlee for the reason she put her fellow preschool classmate in a headlock, the three-year-old responded with a matter-of-fact answer.She said: ‘Because kids don’t get married. So that’s why I put a headlock down on him.’ ‘Did he say he wanted to marry you?’ Kynlee’s mother asked, to which Kynlee replied saying: ‘Yeah!”But kids don’t get married so that’s why I put a headlock down on him, and that’s why I took him down,’ she added.Kynlee’s mother replied, saying: ‘You’re not supposed to do that.’And after processing the thought for a moment, she comes to a conclusion that makes it seem as though she doesn’t regret it.She said: ‘But that’s the greatest thing ever.’Eager to prevent Kynlee from repeating the incident, her mother said: ‘Let’s not put headlocks on boys.’ ‘Are you still happy?’ the toddler asked, before her mother responded saying: ‘I don’t know.”Let’s not put headlocks on boys,’ Kynlee’s mother said once again.Source: Daily Mail

Man drinks his urine as a source of healthy drink

Fabian Farquharson, 37, from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, first started the bizarre practise three years ago after reading about the purported health benefits online.

Source : GISTREEL.

The interior designer starts every day with a pint of fresh urine, chased down with 300-400ml of aged pee, and claims the unusual thirst quencher has left him feeling healthier, happier and smarter.

He explained: ‘I’d been researching alternative medicines when I read about drinking aged urine. I’ve always been open-minded about that sort of thing, so I decided to give it a go and drink it fresh.

‘It tasted a bit like a bitter ale initially, it was quite strong but not a terrible taste and I had no problem finishing the glass.

‘It was about half an hour later that I started to feel amazing, I was absolutely bursting with energy. Now I’d never go a day without it and would recommend it to anyone.’…
