A local mom and her son have achieved great heights in education, but it didn't come easily. The pair recently earned their PhDs on the very same day, a goal that seemed impossible when their long journey began.
"Never in a thousand, million, trillion years [did I expect to get my PhD]. The thought of becoming a doctor anyone was far fetched," said Dr. Maurice McBride. He got his diploma at a ceremony in Minneapolis, MN in August, but the day wasn't just about his accomplishment. It was about sharing the stage with his mother.
"I never thought I would get chance to see my mother walk across the stage and then she turned around and saw me walk across the stage," he said. CONTINUE

Recently, a friend and I were having a discussion about cheating. He was feeling a bit guilty and wanted to know if fantasizing about someone else during sex with your partner is cheating. Hmmm….good question. Of course, I had to ask who he was fantasizing about. Was it Kim Kardashian…or an ex girlfriend? He said out of the hundreds of times he’s had sex with his girlfriend, he only fantasized about someone else twice. Once was with a chick he never actually had sex with, but who he wished he did, and the other was with an ex. So what do you think, is it cheating?

Via Sahara ReportersThe Nigerian ambassador to the United States, Prof. Ade Adefuye has said that God is a Nigerian. He made the declaration yesterday at the Christian Association of Nigerian-Americans’(CANAN) first Charity Gala and Top Ten Awards Dinner.

He said that at the point when some people were throwing around the “doctrine of necessity,” there was a real chance of a coup that would have torpedoed Nigeria’s democracy. CONTINUE.

“One of the songs listed on the paper that was brought home was ‘Big Pimpin’,” she told me. “Another song talked about thug life. My child was getting an education about thug life.”
She could not believe that her child was learning about a man who sings songs that degrade women and glorify the thug life." CONTINUE

Personally, I think Rihanna is a cyber bully and because her fans her very quick to support her, she doesn't know when she has crossed the line with someone. Anyway, this whole situation started over a video that TT posted on instagram, of her singing to a song by Anita Baker "Caught in the Rapture".
In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Joe rips into each member of the reality TV family and claims marrying Khloe was the worst mistake 33-year-old Lamar ever made! Among Joe’s amazing claims are:
* The Kardashians have cursed his boy and ruined his basketball career;
* The reality show put too much pressure on Lamar, forcing him to turn to drugs; and
* Kris Jenner is an “an evil b*tch” and dismisses Kim as a “porn star”.

I am in need of some serious advice. I am 29 years old, no kids, and been with my ex-girlfriend for almost 7 years, off and on, up and down. She is now 27 years old. My problem is that I am filled with so much guilt and regret because of some of the choices and decisions I made. Me and my ex were in a long distance relationship for quite some time. She’s in Ireland and I’m in London, and we were going back and forth. She always used to say to, “You know I can’t do this long distance relationship.” And, I understood that. So, I said ok, I am gonna take care of what I have to do in London and then move. The problem is we were a little strained, but we were trying to work it out. Continue to see my reply
"Early buyers of the iPhone 5S, which went on sale Friday morning, appear to be overwhelmingly choosing the gold-colored model over the two other color options. People trying to buy a gold phone in Apple’s online store Friday saw a message stating the phone will not ship until October. By contrast, Apple said the silver and “space gray” models will be shipped in 7 to 10 business days. Anecdotal reports from lines of shoppers outside Apple stores Friday also showed big demand for the gold-hued phones, which Apple is offering for the first time."SMH....I think the hype is the fingerprint scanning and the gold case but i don't mind if you get one for me sha *runs away*

A scientist in Nigeria has come up with an interesting theory that gay marriage is wrong via an experiment using magnets and other methods. Chibuihem Amalaha, a graduate student of chemical engineering at the University of Lagos, claims that same-sex unions can be disproved scientifically and has the academic support of his university. Nigerian newspaper The Daily Live profiled Amalaha, who has written and published various articles as a science reporter. Along with puffing his chest over his various achievements in science, Amalaha revealed his head-turning revelation that gay marriage is wrong and how his multilayer research proves as such.
A bar magnet is a horizontal magnet that has the North Pole and the South Pole and when you bring two bar magnets and you bring the North Pole together you find that the two North Poles will not attract. They will repel, that is, they will push away themselves showing that a man should not attract a man. If you bring two South Poles together you find that the two South Poles will not attract indicating that same sex marriage should not hold. A female should not attract a female as South Pole of a magnet does not attract the South Pole of a magnet. But, when you bring a North Pole of a magnet and a South Pole of a magnet they will attract because they are not the same, indicating that a man will attract a woman because of the way nature has made a female.

1. Yes, God is real.
2. Be the real you and "Never" wish to be somebody else.
3. Don't let people change who you are just be who you are with someone else..
4. A mother's love is stronger than distance, more powerful than time and can transcend the grave.
5. Heartbreak can make you hard! But don't let it make you bitter
6. Don't try to be seen, God may be hiding you on purpose.
Earlier this year, I was approached to do some media consultancy in Nigeria. I’d just left the BBC after 18 years, to set up my own business, so this seemed a great opportunity. I spoke to a number of friends and former colleagues. I’d heard many stories about Nigeria, seen the reports on Boko Haram and had my own impressions of sub Saharan Africa.
The advice fell into two camps:
a) Don’t go, you’ll get kidnapped or catch malaria. Either way, you’re going to die
b) Nigeria is a nightmare. When you arrive, you’ll be swamped by hustlers trying to rip you off, steal your luggage and all your money. If they don’t get you, the corrupt police officers and officials will. CONTINUE
Teigen changed into another strapless ivory Vera Wang dress for the reception – the design featured a micro-pleated bodice and sheared organza full skirt. And at the after-party she had a third Vera Wang design of the night – a crimson strapless mermaid gown with a hand-draped bodice, inverted flange skirt and embroidered crystal wheat detail. The nuptials follow a seven-year courtship for the couple, who became engaged in 2011 while vacationing together in the Maldives.
Earlier this year, Teigen, 27, confirms that her Grammy-winning groom, 34, would perform his new song "All of Me" at the wedding, which was written for her.
Lebron James tied the knot in California last night -- and instead of some crappy band "We Are Family" -- playing at the reception ... they got JAY-Z and BEYONCE!!!! The Miami Heat forward and his fiance Savannah Brinson made things official during a ceremony in San Diego at the Grand Del Mar Hotel ... after dating 12 years. According to reports -- the 28-year old basketball player was joined by teammate Dwayne Wade and his girlfriend Gabrielle Union ... as well as Jay-Z and Beyonce who performed "Crazy in Love" at the reception.

I wonna look like this at 54 (running to the gym...tomorrow)...On The X Factor, Lillie McCloud tells the judges that she’s 54 years old. The audience reacts with shock. In her video package, Lillie reveals that she has grandchildren, and that she’s been singing for years trying to catch a big break. She takes on singing “Alabaster Box” by Cece Winans. Kelly tears up after being moved by the performance. I actually thought it was Whitney Houston...continue to video.

I know this is one of those obvious questions with a straightforward answer but with the advent of thirsty chics everywhere and with the catchphrase of "Fake it till you make make", i don't think this is a one-off answer. Let me explain; a lady is the best "master of disguise", from the fake hair, nails, eyelash, boobs, bum and height, and one would think the guys would learn. But from my personal research, guys are attracted by what they see and as such would go for what is well "packaged", True or False?
So, do you think men really do prefer a real woman or are more enticed by fake women?
