Cell Phone Takes Bullet For Gas Station Clerk | Photo

During a robbery in Winter Garden, Fla., a gunman fires at a gas station clerk, and the
Sprint HTC in the clerk’s shirt pocket takes the blow.
Engineers delight in putting pens in their shirt pockets. For gas station clerks, however,
the location of your cell phone in your shirt pocket could save your life.This seemed to
be the case at a Winter Garden, Fla., Hess gas station, which was subject to a holdup.
As WFTV reports it , a man walked in, demanded the safe be opened, and brandished a
gun. Two clerks tried to open the safe, but failed. The robber took off, but not before
turning and firing at one of the clerks, when the police arrived, one of the clerks
complained of chest pain. A touch of angina? No, a bullet to his HTC.

32-yr-old man butchers uncle over destiny manipulation

A man identified as Chinweoru Ugbo, 32, was weekend arrested by the Onueke
Divisional Police Command, Ebonyi State for allegedly butchering his uncle, Mr. Ogbuleji
Nwite, 78, with an axe.
The crime was allegedly committed at Nsokkara Community in Ezza South Local Government
Area of the state over claims that the deceased was diabolically manipulating Ugbo’s destiny.
The suspect allegedly lured his victim to a lonely farmland near a neighbouring community in
Amagu, under the guise of showing him (the victim) a piece of land he wanted to purchase.
He reportedly inflicted 27 cuts on late Mr. Nwite in the early hours of Saturday, unaware that
some people saw him.
Vanguard gathered that the suspect was caught by the villagers at Igweledoha Nsokkara
community, when he was packing his luggage to flee the community.
It was also learnt that the suspect, a trader resident at Owerri in Imo State, was said to have
returned home on Friday night with the intention of killing his uncle.
Eyewitnesses’ story
An eyewitness, Nweke Nwankwo, alleged that the act took place in a vegetable farmland.
The witness said: “I was on top of a palm tree harvesting fruits and saw both of them
conversing. I never suspected anything because they were relatives.
“But I felt cold to the spine when the boy started brutalising the old man, who recently
returned from the hospital after an eye surgery.”
Another witness, a woman who spoke on condition of anonymity, stated that she was weeding
in her farm, some distance from the scene, when she heard a cry.
She said: “I did not know that an abomination was being committed because the loud shout
was just once.
“I continued with my job until passers-by, who first sighted the dead body, raised alarm.”
It was learnt that a white T-shirt, which an eyewitness claimed the suspect wore that morning,
was brought out from his room with blood stains.

Nigerian man jailed in the UK for raping a woman in her own home

A Nigerian night club bouncer has been jailed for seven years in the UK for raping a woman in
her own home. Idreez Popoola (pictured above), who twice dodged deportation, brutally
attacked his victim on 29th December 2012, eleven months after he successful appealed his
deportation ruling.
Prosecutors said Popoola met his victim while working as an agency-employed bouncer
outside Bar So in Northampton town centre. He took her out for drinks then managed to
convince the woman to take him back to her home. It was in her home that he attacked her.
Popoola, 34, was jailed for seven years at a court in Northampton on October 18. He was also
ordered to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register for life. The court told him he would be
automatically deported back to Nigeria on his release from prison.

Mysterious figures also shows up at Stamford Bridge (Photos)

Mysterious sightings continued to rock football on Sunday as 11 cloaked
figures sat in the famous Shed End at Stamford Bridge for Chelsea’s match
against Manchester City .
On Sunday evening, the 11 men sat motionless throughout the match, but did
celebrate by raising their fists together when Chelsea scored both of their
goals in the 2-1 victory.
The baffling presence caps off a strange week for the sport after Hackney
Marshes in London’s east end and Rio de Janiero’s Sugarloaf Mountain were
both invaded by unexplained balls, including a three-metre football.
At Stamford Bridge, the mysterious men wore white paint on their faces, with
a black triangle painted on their foreheads.
Twitter was awash with speculation about why the men were there. @b4llack
tweeted: “Who were the weird guys in black at Stamford Bridge today?”
Another tweeter made the raised the possibility that the mysterious sightings
are connected. @Peter_NotMorgan said: “The weird-black-robed-martian
looking 11 are gracing Stamford Bridge. Same chaps who were at Allianz
The latest reports from across Europe state that similar men, wearing the same
outfits, were seen at the Allianz Arena in Munich – the home of Bayern
Munich – and
Juventus Stadium in Turin, too.
It is not yet known whether the footballs on Hackney Marshes and the strange
groups of men are linked.
The cryptic words #WINNERTAKESEARTH were printed on the footballs in
Brazil and Hackney – but supernatural experts are unable to explain how the
words are linked to the strange sightings.
What could this be? We managed to capture some video footage of these
obscure sightings during the match on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.
Take a look above and see if you can grasp the meaning of this and why
football has become the target of these seemingly paranormal events.

Man in court for false alarm over disappearance of manhood

The police on Monday arraigned a trader, John Fadeyi, for allegedly raising false alarm
over the disappearance of his manhood in the public.
The accused, 32, who resides at Oja Street in Orile, is facing a two-count charge of assault and
raising false alarm in a Magistrates’ Court in Tinubu, Lagos.
The Police Prosecutor, Sgt. Daniel Ighodalo, told the court that the accused committed the

contact with him, adding that he immediately felt something leaving his body.
“Fadeyi alleged that when the lady hit him, he felt a shock and that when he touched his
private part; he discovered that it had disappeared.
“He raised an alarm and people immediately gathered to plead with the complainant to return
his private part,’’ he added.
Ighodalo said that the complainant claimed that she was beaten up because of the false alarm
which Fadeyi raised.
The prosecutor said that the offence contravened Sections 166 and 171 of the Criminal Law of
Lagos State, 2011.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The Magistrate, Mrs O. M. Ajayi, granted the accused bail in the sum of N40,000 bail with one
surety in like sum.
She later adjourned the case to Nov. 4. (NAN)

Get to know How Ferguson sold Ronaldo

Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has
lifted the lid on how he promised Cristiano Ronaldo his
dream move to Real Madrid .
In Alex Ferguson: My Autobiography, which goes on
general sale on Thursday, the Scot tells of how then
Madrid president Ramon Calderon's public overtures riled
him to the extent that he refused to sanction a sale
despite Ronaldo's desire to move to Spain.
Ronaldo would eventually join Madrid for £80
million (€94m) in 2009, which Ferguson
believes was a
statement of intent from re-
instated president Florentino Perez.
The Scot writes: "Madrid paid £80 million in
cash for him, and do you know why? It was a
way for Florentino Perez, their president, to say
to the world, ‘We are Real Madrid, we are the
biggest of the lot'.
"When the possibility of him leaving edged
towards being a probability, I reached a
gentleman’s agreement with him.
"I went to Carlos’s house in Portugal to find
the boy expressing an urge to go to Real Madrid, and told him: 'You can’t go this year, not after
the way Calderon has approached the issue'.
"I said, ‘I know you want to go to Real Madrid. But I’d rather shoot you than sell you to that guy
now. If you perform, don’t mess us about, and someone comes and offers a world record fee, then
we will let you go.’
"I did well to calm him down. I told him that the reason I was refusing to sell him that year was
because of Calderon. I said, ‘If I do that, all my honour’s gone, everything’s gone for me, and I
don’t care if you have to sit in the stands. I know it won’t come to that, but I just have to tell you
I will not let you leave this year'."

5 Warning Signs That Your Mate is Tired of Your Relationship

There’s no better way to say it: breakups suck. An even worse scenario that many women
have experienced is being blindsided by the news that your partner wants out. The shock,
pain, unexpectedness, and confusion can be hard to bear. There are, however, tell-tale
signs that give fair warning that trouble is brewing and breakup is looming.
Once you have the ability to notice the signs, make the decision to address the
relationship issues before it’s too late. Better yet, turn the tables and end the relationship
first, on your terms. As unpleasant as the entire situation may be, it is always better to do
the dumping than be the dumpee.

10 Surprising Facts About Albert Einstein ( Exclusive Photos)

We all know the basics about Albert Einstein. He was one of the greatest
scientists of all time. He came up with the theory of relativity. He was
born in Germany but moved to America, where he died in 1955. And yes,
he rocked a wild hairdo.
But over the years many other facts about the famous physicist have
come to light -- including some that are pretty surprising. Consider these

Fact #1: Einstein wasn't a beautiful baby. When Einstein was born on
March 14, 1879, the back of his head was reportedly so huge that his
family worried something was wrong with him. But within the first few
weeks, the shape of his head became more normal-looking.

Fact #2: Einstein was slow to talk. Some say he didn't start speaking
until age four. Stanford economist Dr. Thomas Sowell even coined the
controversial term "Einstein Syndrome" to describe exceptionally bright
people whose speech is delayed.

Fact #3: Einstein did NOT flunk math. It's long been rumored that
Einstein was a bad student -- and these rumors have been fueled in part
by headlines like one in a "Ripley's Believe it or Not!" newspaper:
"Greatest living mathematician failed in mathematics." In fact, Einstein
was not a poor student. He was conversant in college physics before he
was 11 years old, was a ''brilliant'' violin player, and received high marks
in Latin and Greek. Before age 15 he had already mastered calculus.

Fact #4: Einstein had an illegitimate child. Before Einstein and his first
wife, Mileva Marić, married, she secretly gave birth to their daughter at
her parents' home in Serbia, Time magazine reported. But the fate of the
baby, who was named Lieserl, is unclear. She essentially disappeared
from historical records shortly after birth. There is no evidence that
Einstein ever saw his daughter.

Fact #5: Einstein set weird rules for his wife. Einstein demanded a lot
from Mileva. In fact, he gave her a set of rules to follow. Included on the
list was that she had to serve three meals day, to stop talking if he asked
her to, and to expect no intimacy from him.

Fact #6: Einstein got along really well with his cousin. So well, in fact,
that she -- Elsa Einstein -- became his wife in 1919. The two reportedly
were romantically involved during Einstein's first marriage, according to

Fact #7: Einstein was popular with the ladies. In letters that he wrote
to Elsa, Einstein readily acknowledged many extramarital affairs. He
wrote that his girlfriends showered him with "unwanted" affection, The
Telegraph reported.

Fact #8: Wearing socks wasn't Einstein's thing. In another letter to
Elsa, Einstein wrote that he "got away without wearing socks" at the
University of Oxford. The world-renowned genius eventually became
known for his unkempt appearance -- though more attention was focused
on his hair than on his feet.

Fact #9: Einstein was a member of the NAACP. Specifically, the chapter
in Princeton, N.J., where he lived and worked. But even before Einstein
moved permanently to America in 1933, he corresponded with civil
rights activist and scholar W.E.B. Dubois, a founder of the NAACP. And
during a 1946 speech at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, Einstein
called racism “a disease," .

Fact #10: Einstein may have hastened his death. Einstein died on April
18, 1955 after suffering a burst blood vessel. According to the website of
the American Museum of Natural History, doctors suggested surgery, but
Einstein declined, saying, "It is tasteless to prolong life artificially."

2-Year-Old Dead After Accidentally Shooting Herself With Handgun

A 2-year-old girl is dead after accidentally shooting herself with a
handgun inside a North Carolina home, according to multiple reports.
Police said the girl, who was nicknamed "Coco," found a loaded handgun
and that it discharged, local NBC affiliate WNCN-TV reported. She was at
the home with her aunt and grandmother at the time.
When officers found the girl, whose name is not being released, she
wasn't breathing. She was immediately brought to the Cape Fear Medical
Center where she was pronounced dead, the local outlet reported.
"She would always come to to the fence line and play with my dog,"
neighbor Byron Brown told WRAL-TV. "To lose a 2-year-old baby who
hasn't even lived horrific," he said.
Another neighbor, Felicia Brown, told WNCN-TV there have been "too
many shootings" in the neighborhood recently and that she plans to
move away.
Police ruled the death an accident, but say the investigation is ongoing.
While there have been no charges filed yet, authorities say that will
likely change.

10 Psychological Studies That Will Change What You ThinkYou Know About Yourself

Why do we do the things we do? Despite our best attempts to "know thyself," the truth is that we often know astonishingly little about our own minds, and even less about the way others think. As Charles Dickens once put it, “A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.” Psychologists have long sought insights into how we perceive the world and what motivates our behavior, and they've made enormous strides in lifting that veil of mystery. Aside from providing fodder for stimulating cocktail-party conversations, some of the most famous psychological experiments of the past century reveal universal and often surprising truths about human nature. Here are 10 classic psychological studies that may change the way you understand yourself.

Unbeliebable: Man pays $100k for plastic surgery to look like Justin Bieber

A 33-year-old man has spent five years and $100,000 in an effort to look like his
hero - teenaged pop idol Justin Bieber.
Toby Sheldon is a songwriter from Los Angeles who has used Bieber's youthful features as the
inspiration for numerous surgeries, including face fillers, a chin reduction and eyelid surgery.
Sheldon's obsession with his appearance began when he started having treatments to prevent
his hair thinning at the age of 23, but really took off when a pre-pubescent Justin Bieber hit
the big-time in 2008.
Sheldon, along with hordes of preteen girls, became
enamored of the pop star.
'Once Justin shot to fame his face was everywhere and I all I kept thinking when I saw his
picture was, "I want to look like him,"' Sheldon says.
Sheldon had already spent $8,000 on hair transplants to supplement his thinning blond locks,
but he wasn't happy with the results.
He took a picture of Bieber to his plastic surgeon to demonstrate exactly how he wanted his
hair to look.
'It took three transplants and a total of $21,000 to accurately lower my hair line, close off my
temples and grow back my bangs,' he says.
Once he had perfected his Bieber-style hair, Sheldon, who admits to a phobia of aging,
decided he wasn't finished.
'By using Justin’s charming baby face as my inspiration, I’ve been able to restructure my
entire look to maintain a much more youthful appearance through plastic surgery.'
Sheldon says he admires Bieber for his youthful good looks, if not his musical output.
'I didn’t necessarily listen to his music or fawn over him as a celebrity, but his face was just
so flawless every change I made was modeled after him.'
In this quest, Sheldon has remodeled his features so that he bears little resemblance to the
fair-haired, pleasant-featured man he was before his surgeries.
After his successful hair refurbishment, Sheldon had his face and lips plumped up with filler to
look more youthful.
Next, he had Botox and Aquamid injections in his forehead and temples.
In 2012, he spent $4,850 on eye surgery to lift his upper eyelids.
'But it took going to eight different surgeons before anyone would agree to operate on me as
everyone thought I was crazy to be obsessing over such a tiny detail,' he says.
His most recent procedure, a three-part smile surgery, has literally turned his frown upside
down in an effort to emulate his 19-year-old idol’s boyish smile.
Popular in South Korea, smile surgery has doubled in the U.S. in the past year.
'When I first sought out to look like Justin I only paid attention to specific aspects of his
boyish look like his hair and the structure of his face,' says Sheldon.
'But the more I started studying Justin and young people in general it’s really their smile that
gives them their youthful glow. If you look closely, you’ll notice that when younger people
just barely have their mouths open they naturally show their top teeth, giving them a sort of
natural and effortless smile.'
For $30,000 Sheldon's Beverly Hills plastic surgeon lifted his upper lip, turned out his bottom
lip and turned up the corners of his mouth to give him a 'perma-smile.'
He also had liposuction on his chin to smooth out his smile and had the fat from his chin
transferred to his hands, lips and under his eyes.
Even after a total of $100,000 worth of plastic surgery to look like his baby-faced idol, Toby
says he still hasn’t achieved his dream look.
'I know there is more work to be done in order to make a full transformation into Justin
Bieber’s doppelganger like a nose job and jaw reduction, which my surgeon has suggested.'
Sheldon proudly relates a story about being turned away from a liquor store recently because
the staff didn't believe he is 33.
Although Sheldon's similarity to his teen idol isn't immediately obvious even after spending
$100,000 worth of surgical procedures, he says he does get mistaken for Bieber.
'Between our similar hairstyles, baby faced smile and overall youthful appearance I finally look
like Justin Bieber and I couldn’t be happier about it,' he says.

Shocker: Couple sell daughter for iPhone

A young Chinese couple are facing criminal punishment for “selling” their infant daughter
and using the proceeds to buy an Apple iPhone, state media said Friday.
Shanghai prosecutors have brought a case against them for human trafficking after they
illegally put their third child up for adoption online and accepted money for the baby, the
Liberation Daily reported.
Investigators found the mother, whose full name was not given, used the money to buy
an iPhone, high-end sports shoes and other goods, it said.
Apple’s products are wildly popular in China, where a teenager sold his kidney and used
the funds to buy an iPhone and iPad in an incident widely reported last year.
But the couple told police that they wanted the girl to have a better upbringing than they
could afford, since they already had two children.
“Giving away the child was not for obtaining benefits, but giving the child better
guarantees,” one said.
Some Chinese, especially in rural areas, have a traditional preference for sons though
reports did not say if the child’s gender was also a factor in the case.
Online commentary condemned the couple, though some used black humour to describe
modern Chinese society and the quest for wealth.
“So cold-blooded! These people do not deserve the right to be parents!” said
Wangzhan1969 in a microblog posting.
“This is good business — no capital, huge profit and no need to sell kidneys,” said
another posting.
An official of the prosecutor’s office handling the case expressed worry over
“sensationalism” surrounding the affair but declined to comment further to AFP.
Shanghai police could not be reached for comment.
Reports did not give the amount the couple received for the child, but their online
postings asked for 30,000 yuan and 50,000 yuan ($4,900 and $8,200).
Apple last month launched the iPhone 5s, including a gold-coloured model, and the more
budget-conscious iPhone 5c in China.

'Boxes' of body parts found at Kenya mall

Charred pieces of bodies, enough to fill two boxes, have been recovered from the Kenyan shopping mall that was stormed by terrorists last month.

The remains, along with four AK-47 rifles believed to have been used by the attackers, were found in part of the mall that collapsed during the siege in Nairobi on September 21.

A security official said it was possible the remains are of the attackers but it would not be definitively known until tests were carried out.

One of the four gunmen has been identified by a real name for the first time: Abdi Dhuhulow, a Norwegian-Somali according to the security official.

Norwegian tax records show a Hassan Abdi Dhuhulow was born in 1990 and was registered at an address in Larvik, southern Norway, as late as 2009.

One man living in another Scandinavian country, who only gave his first name, Yussuf, told AP he believes he had met the gunman at a gathering of Somali immigrants in Oslo, Norway's capital, in 2008.

Yussuf recalled the man's name as Abdi and said he was associated with "pretty radical" circles in Norway.

"He was mad. He didn't feel at home in Norway."

Yussuf said he had not had any contact with the man since then but added that several people he knew thought they had recognised him in the closed-circuit TV footage of the mall attack.

Newly released security video shows that gunmen entered the mall and casually opened fire on shoppers, the beginning of a four-day siege that left 67 dead.

The Somali Islamic militant group al-Shabab claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it was in retaliation for Kenya sending troops into Somalia to go after the group.

Police nab fake LUTH doctor..Photo

Lagos State Police Command, yesterday, paraded a 40-year-old man, Adeyemi
Stephen Akintolure, a suspected fake medical doctor, who claimed to be a staff of Lagos
University Teaching Hospital, LUTH, with card No. 13541, identifying him as a surgeon and
The fake medical doctor was also said to have fraudulently obtained N500,000 from one Joy
Umosekhaimhe of 2, Adesanya Close, Ifeko-Gbagada.
Akintolure, who said he uses the wife’s car as a mobile clinic, said the money in question was
borrowed from Umosekhaimhe, adding “actually, it was not N500,000. It was N260,000 she lent
me to use for my brother’s ailment.”

He said he is from Ondo State, studied Marketing at ObafemiAwolowoUniversity, Ife, as a part-
time student and graduated in 1997.
According to Akintolure, “I have not treated more than 10 people. I just treat them for malaria
and typhoid and I also give injections too because of my experience at Rivic Hospital at Akure.”
When asked how he got the identity card, he said he got it from a business centre and that the
computer operator signed it for him.
He said that he charges between N3,000 and N4,000 per patient, adding that his wife was not
aware of his trade.
Police Public Relations Officer, Deputy Superintendent of Police Ngozi Braide, said she
received a petition at the area H Police Command Headquarters, Ogudu, on July 19, that one
Adeyemi Stephen Akintolure obtained N500,000 from one Joy Umosekhaimhe.
Braide said that a letter was written to LUTH on July 23 to authenticate Akintolure claims of
being a staff.
She said: “On October 10, LUTH replied that the suspect is not an employee of the hospital and
was not issued the identity card.
“In view of the revelation, the suspect confessed that he is not a medical doctor, but has been
practising for about four years, using his wife’s vehicle as a mobile clinic.”
She said his house and vehicle were searched and drugs, injections, syringes and laboratory
coat were recovered.

DO you Agree: 7 Things Women Usually Lie About »

should just realize that a woman can never have too
many pairs of wedge heels and not place her in the
position of lying.
1. THEIR WEIGHT: One of the things women commonly lie
about is their weight. This is probably the thing they
most commonly lie about. Even the most honest woman
may be shaving five pounds off of her weight when she
is asked about it. No woman wants to appear as a large
woman. She wants to be seen as petite and delicate.
2. THEIR AGE: Ageing is difficult, especially for women.
As men age, they become more distinguished. As women
age, well, we just feel like we become old. And that
reality is hard to swallow for some of us so we lie about
it. It doesn't make us any younger to lie about our age
but it might make us feel a little younger and that is a
temptation that many cannot resist.
3. THEIR COOKING: None of us can deny the fact that we live in a very fast paced world. We
don’t have time to cook the things we would like to cook as long as we would like to cook
them. Many, many women have attempted to pass off a store bought goody as one they
prepared themselves. Even if they don’t say it in as many words, they may attempt to give that
impression by placing the food item in a personal dish. At the very least, they won’t reveal
their secrets.
4. THEIR SHOPPING HABITSMany women also lie about their shopping habits. But really, that
should be understandable. Men should just realize that a woman can never have too many
pairs of wedge heels and not place her in the position of lying. Wouldn’t you agree, ladies?
Many women lie about their shopping habits to keep an argument down.
5. THE MONEY THEY SPEND: Going hand in hand with lying about their shopping habits is the
fact that many women lie about how much money they spend. They may not totally lie but just
stretch the truth a little on this subject. They may spend it on having their hair or nails done,
shopping, lunch with a friend or just little inconsequential things. But the temptation to lie
about how much money they spend, especially if they are married, can be quite high. A little
white lie seems much better than an ugly argument.
6. THEIR MARRIAGE: Many women choose to present a prettier picture than there really is of
their marriage. I actually don’t believe that this is totally a bad thing. While I do believe lying
outright is very wrong, I believe painting your spouse in the best light is the best thing to do
for yourself, for them and your marriage. When you choose to talk positively about your
spouse, everybody wins. You feel better about them, they feel better about you and your
marriage benefits.
7. THEIR LIFE: Many women don’t want to admit dissatisfaction with their lives, even to
themselves. And while putting on a brave face is a noble thing to do, it isn’t always the best
thing to do. If you are struggling with things in your life, go to a friend or a trusted counselor
or religious leader for counsel. We all have hard times and we should help each other through
them. It is much better to talk about how wonderful your life is when it really is.

WOW! 8 months pregnant Rebekkah leads team to WNBA championship

The Minnesota Lynx swept the Atlanta Dream Thursday night to clinch their second WNBA championship in three years, led by several dominant performances from 31-year-old, eight-months pregnant Rebekkah Brunson. Brunson, a 6-foot, 2-inch tall, 215-pound power forward who recently entered her third trimester, averaged 26 points and 14 rebounds in the series and was by all accounts the Lynx’s biggest threat on both ends of the floor. “Rebekkah was really the difference-maker, there’s no question about that,” said Lynx head coach Cheryl Reeve, adding that Brunson’s low-post game has drastically improved since putting on 40 pounds over the past
