This morning I lost my husband and my best friend while the world lost one of its most beloved artist and human beings, I am utterly heartbroken. On behalf of Robin's family, we are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millionsRobin struggled with alcohol abuse and cocaine use but quit Cold turkey after John Belushi's fatal overdose in 1982. I remember him as Mrs Doubtfire. He also acted several other movies like The Fisher King, Night at the Museum, Secret of the Tomb and Good will hunting among others. May his beautiful soul rest in peace amen. He is survived by his wife Susan and three adult children from two earlier marriages, 25 year old daughter Zelda , Sons Zachary 31 and Cody 22. His final Instagram post was to his daughter where he wrote " A happy birthday to Ms Zelda Rae Williams! A quarter of a century old today but always my baby girl happy birthday @Zeldawilliams Love you"

This gruesome video gathered by Amnesty International provide fresh evidence of war crimes perpetrated by Nigerian soldiers in response to Boko Haram attack. This video is currently showing the men called forth one by one and asked to lie on the ground, their necks cut off and their bodies dumped in mass graves. No screaming, no noise, just subservience. We understand this video is just a tip of what is really going on there. Is this what it has turned to? Taking laws into our hands? Who says these are truly Boko Haram members?

Convinced that all he needed to prevent him from catching a sexually transmitted disease just two weeks before his wedding was to be circumcised, Xiao opted to have it done.
Four Months after 21 year old, Xiao He in China checked out of the Hospital, he is suing the Boadi Bohai Hospital in Tianji where circumcision left him without a penis!
The story is that he was not informed of the risks or side effects involved. Over the first week following circumcision he found his penis gradually changing in colour from the bright (painful) red of a fresh amputation site to a very dark deep colour. He checked himself into Shanghai Jiaotong university Hospital and soon underwent another surgery on his penis. The physician performed repeated surgery completed a penis debridement and local flap Angioplasty of the Urethra to try and save his penis but the damage was to severe and his entire penis was removed! This is a warning to all parents, make sure you do a lot of research if you are pregnant with a boy child so that you are armed with knowledge before he is cut. How can a man survive happily without a penis? I am astounded at this info. Please do not joke with it. In my former street in Surulere I knew a woman who used to pay some aboki malaams N200 to circumcise her sons. The malaams used to walk around streets for new mothers to see them and invite them to perform the butchery just because it was cheaper. Big risks I call it. How much do Hospitals even charge for this?

Nigerian government has asked the United States to return $500 million recently frozen by the United States government as part of the funds stolen by the late dictator.
Premium Times is reporting that yet again on Wednesday the Federal government of Nigeria withdrew all corruption charges filed against the late dictator Sani Abacha and his son Mohammed Abacha who helped his father launder the money. The government had accused Mohammed of receiving stolen property worth $100.38 billion. The money believed to have been stolen by Abacha when he was the Nigerian head from 1993-1998. Several billions stolen by the late head of state and kept in foreign countries have been recovered by the government. The question now is that after recovering such monies where are they kept? Your guess is as good as mine...

I expected Vicent Enyeama to be in the final list for the goalkeepers but I am more delighted and looking forward to seeing Austin and Chigozie in their element. What do you think about the selection, hit or miss? Whats your opinion about the new Jersey, some say it looks Abaish!

An Australian cleric hired by Goodluck Jonathan to negotiate the freedom of the Chibok girls has ruled out the possibility of a rescue because he says the girls are scattered in several groups in different camps across the Nigerian border in Chad, Niger and Cameroun. He explained to PUNCH that rescuing one group could endanger those in another group.
According to Stephen Davis some of the girls are really ill and need medical attention. He says:
"One of that small group of girls is ill and we had hoped we might convince the Commander of the group holding her that she should be released so that she can get medical treatment. There are other girls who are not well and we have come close to having them released but their captors fear a trap in which they will be captured in the handover process. One girl has what I assume is a broken wrist as they demonstrate to me how she holds her hands. I have been told that others are sick and in need of medical attention. But I am encouraged by the progress everyday there is a possibility of the release of the girls. This is painful for the parents and the nation. The well-being of the girls is constantly on our minds and we want to see their release as soon as possible."

Bild Magazine a German newspaper has published a photograph of Kate Middleton's bare ass. The picture was taken during Kate's recent visit to Australia when a gust of wind briefly caught her dress and her flimsy underwear did not offer much cover. It ran the photograph alongside those of Kim and Khloe Kardashian and captioned it "back sides which have moved us these past few days"
The breach of privacy comes less than 2 years after the Duke and Duchess launched legal action against a French Magazine that printed topless photos of Kate on holidays.
As the wind from the Helicopter's rotor blades lifted Kate's 295 pounds Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress an opportunistic photographer captured it and touted it around International Newspapers. It was finally sold to the highest bidder. Now see several photos of the wind playing with Kate's dresses, its beginning to look like she actually enjoys this, otherwise why the same kinda dresses every time? Click to see all the various times it has happened.

In 2009 Salkida was exiled from Bornu to Abuja by the Governor in what looked like an internal deportation of its citizen because he interviewed the Boko Haram leader Mohammed Yusuf before his death in the hands of the Nigerian Police. See his Tweets after the cut... You can follow him on Twitter @Ahmad Salkida. He is also followed by Christian Amampour I discovered.

Chief of Defence Staff Air Marshal Alex Badeh says they know where the abducted girls are but they cannot attempt a rescue. Because doing so will put their lives at risk. He says even the parents of the missing girls know where they are. More than 200 girls were abducted from their school by the Boko Haram sect about five weeks ago and this is what we get from our leaders? There have been tracked to three different and after that what next? These girls maybe getting raped every day some may even be pregnant already!
I50 people have died in the past week with 3 different bomb blasts in Jos claiming lives and properties yet nothing is being done to curb these sect and our leaders go on TV to tell the world how clueless they are? President Jonathan needs to stop pussy footing and act like a leader who cares about his people. His non action shows that he is afraid to even try. I don't think he is as inept as he wants Nigerians to believe. If Aso Rock is bombed will the story not change? Telling the abductors we know where you are but we do not want to put the lives of the girls at risk is another way of telling Boko Haram to change their base. Somebody is in cahoots with the enemy. What is your opinion? Meanwhile watch the video of the Minister below talking crap about forces of darkness.

The bombs went off at Jos Terminus market with the first explosion detonated by a suicide bomber in a Fiat car around 3pm while the second bomb went off in a Toyota Sienna 20 meters from the scene of the first bomb. Eye witnesses put the death toll at 150 with about 45b injured!

Traditional hunters armed with home made guns and poisoned spears and amulets have gathered in hundreds and are eager to use their juju skills to help find the abducted girls. Between the ages of 18 to 80 all 500 have been waiting for two weeks in Bornu to get backing from the Military.
With cow horn trumpets and echoing eerie war cries that can send shivers down the spin. These men were selected by their peers for their spiritual powers twirl around and stab themselves with no apparent harm. They also have herbs and other substances wrapped in leather pouches. with cowrie shells, animal teeth and leather bracelets they say they are impenetrable to bullets. They claim they are not saying they are better than the soldiers but they are laying claim to knowing the bush better. They say they have reached the end of their patience and if the government is not ready to use them then they will disband. What does this portend for Nigeria? Strange happenings in this country of ours.

Solange was ferociously kicking and swinging at Jay Z inside an elevator according to TMZ report. This happened immediately after the MET gala after party last week. A large man who appears to be a bodyguard attempts to hold her down but she manages to connect at least 3 times. At some point she kicks and Jay Z grabs her foot but he never attempts to retaliate. The bodyguard presses the emergency button of the elevator presumably to keep it private. Solange then smacks Jay Z with her purse and the contents spills all over. They all walk out of the elevator together and while Beyonce and Solange get in the same car, Jay Z gets in another car. Its unclear what triggered the fight but I suspect he must have done or said something that angered her. During the fight Beyonce watches idly by as if she was used to this kind of fight or that she just did not care. She posted the following post right after the fight about purging people around her. see it after the cut
