Lagos pupil expelled for putting acid in classmate’s bottle

Its scary these days when you see and hear the atrocities committed by young children in schools. Some weeks back it was an attack of male students on their female counterparts in a secondary school in Ikoyi.

What kind of morals and discipline are being instilled in our children in homes and schools.? What kind or pressure are kids going through and how are parents resolving these issues? Why would a pupil want to poison and kill his classmate because of class position and jealousy?

A Junior Secondary School pupil I of the Lekki British International School, Lekki, Lagos, has been expelled for allegedly putting sulphuric acid and ethanol in the water bottle of his classmate. ACID-875-875x583 According to punch, the 12-year-old was envious of the 11-year-old female classmate, who had beaten him to the first position in the first and second terms.
The incident happened around 1.30pm on Wednesday, June 14. The school was planning for the third term exam when the 12-year-old allegedly sneaked into the school’s laboratory and stole the acid and ethanol. He was said to have mixed the chemicals and poured them into the 11-year-old’s water bottle. Two pupils of the school reportedly caught him in the act and reported to the school management. The suspect allegedly owned up to the crime, saying he had been planning it for sometime. A member of the 11-year-old’s family said on Wednesday that despite the culprit’s confession, the school allowed him to sit for the third term examination. When our correspondent contacted the school management, an official, who did not identify herself, said the pupil had been expelled. She said, “The boy has been expelled with immediate effect. The girl is in school and she is fine. We have zero tolerance for such misbehaviour.”

Man batters wife for disrespecting his sick mother sick 

A middle-aged man, whose wife was rescued from his grips, while he was beating her, has said that he was provoked by her ill-treatment of his sick mother. Joy Abiagan, the housewife At the moment, his wife, Joy Abiagan, is nursing an injury in her right eye in a hospital in Ogun State. battered-wife The victim, who also complained of body pains, accused her husband of striping her naked in public at their Ifo home, Ogun State. When contacted, her husband, Francis Abiagan, accused his wife of being disrespectful to his ailing mother. According to Vanguard, he said, “I have been married for 10 years. My mother had stroke and no one was available to give her special care. My greatest undoing was to bring her home, as my wife would not allow her a moment of rest. “I have been accommodating all her siblings, but in return for my gesture, they (siblings) have turned my life into a nightmare. “First, she started by starving her so I decided to hire a house help, who would be cooking and caring for her. “But the humiliation on my mother came to a height after my wife was seen dragging my mother on the ground, calling her a witch. I have been enduring all other insults, but I could not bear this particular one. “She told the cook not to come again. The church where we worship organised several meetings for us, urging her to change, but she refused. “I gave her the treatment she deserves.”

Stop discriminating against childless couples

The founder of Range Foundation, Dr. Oluwatoyin Bass, has called for an end to the discrimination and stigmatisation of childless couples. She made this call during the public presentation of her book titled, Range and Wellness Found Me and Beyond, as part of activities to mark her 40th birthday.
According to Punch, Bass, who gave birth to her son through In-vitro Fertilisation, noted that stigmatisation could also delay conception in affected couples. “It took nearly eight years for us to have our son and I know how it felt; the way people look at you because you don’t have a child, the things that are said behind your back and even family friends. They might mean well; but the things that they say also put pressure on couples when they’re trying to have a baby. DR BASS “So we are seeking to dispel that stigma of infertility and, hopefully, we can lend our voice to this fight so that other people who are facing the same challenge can also benefit in inexpensive treatments that are available.” Bass also called on couples to rise above social stigma and consider adoption as this could also ease their worries. “ We need to open up to adoption because there are a lot of children out there who need homes.  These children need to be loved and so, while we are waiting, there is nothing wrong with adopting. It is also a stigma that is attached to adoption that makes people not to come forward to adopt. “If you think about it when you were growing up, you probably had other children who passed through your home. Your parents raised other people’s children without legally signing a paper. So, I don’t know if it is because we have to sign a paper that there is a problem. “Society should not judge those whose hearts are open to adoption. It’s not enough to be the biological parents of a child; it is the person who nurtured and raised the child that is really the parent,” she noted.

Policewoman poured hot water and soup on househelp

A female police officer, Joy Okoshi (pictured), allegedly poured hot water on her 15-year-old
househelp identified as Chinyere Igwe in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State capital.
It was gathered that the victim was preparing soup when Okoshi complained that she did not follow her instruction. In anger, she poured the hot pot of soup on her and later followed it with a bowl of hot water.
“I failed to follow her instruction and in anger, she came out and carried the pot of soup together with the egusi (melon) and threw at me and it landed on my back. She also carried iron and hit me on my body and ordered me to bend down and raise my leg up but I refused because my back was paining me seriously. She locked me up in a room while she went to boil water to pour on me. I pleaded with her to have mercy on me but she went inside and brought tear gas, then I started crying when she rushed to get hot water and poured on me,"Igwe said.
According to the victim, she had suffered various forms of abuse in the two years she lived with the policewoman.
“Only my mother is alive and I have been living with my madam for over two years now. This is as a result of my father’s death coupled with my mother’s financial handicap.
She added that the policewoman’s husband also hit her.
"Her husband also beat me up, but he was not aware that I had such injury because it was in the night. He later apologised and asked his wife to use honey to treat my back," Igwe said.
Meanwhile, wife of Ebonyi State governor, Mrs Rachael Umahi has called for the arrest of the officer. Umahi made the call after officials from her office and the State Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development rescued the girl from the policewoman's home.
Chief Press Secretary to the governor’s wife, Donatus Owo in a statement last Saturday said the victim is receiving treatment.
“The matter has been reported to the police while the victim was taken to Police Clinic for medical treatment,’’ she said.

Teenager plunged to her death in bungee-jumping

A teenager died because of the poor English of her bungee-jumping instructor, a court has heard. Vera Mol, 17, was told "no jump" by her instructor but she thought the instructor said "now jump", so she plunged to her untimely death. The sad incident occurred on the bridge of Cabezon de la Sal, located in the northern Spanish province of Cantabria back in 2015.

 

Vera was tied by the rope, but without being secured to the bridge when she took the plunge. The instructor, who has not been named, has appeared in court accused of causing the Dutch teen's death. Judges in the court of Cantabria, northern Spain, say the instructor should have checked for ID to make sure Vera was 18 years old. the judge also added that the instructor's English was "macarronico" (very bad). It is reported that the instructor should have said "don't jump" instead of "no jump".
The second issue raised by the judge was that the bridge used for the bungee jumping was not suitable under Spanish regulations. Flowtrack, who run the bungee jumping company which employed the man have said it was an accident. Martijn Klom from the company said the girl's death was caused by a misunderstanding.

Pic shows: Alimiha Seiti gets her hair arranged by her daughter;

A woman claimed to be the world’s oldest person celebrated her 131st birthday on Sunday according to Chinese state media.

The China News Service reports that Alimiha Seiti was born on 25th June, 1886.

She is said to have 56 descendants.

Alimiha, who lives in Shule County in the Kashgar region of China’s western Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, says she loves talking to visitors and often sings when she is in a good mood.

The gregarious lady says she loves having visitors and that someone comes to see her most days.

Local doctor Abdul Rusuli reportedly checked her over on her birthday and found normal blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

It was not reported how Alimiha celebrated her birthday, or what she says is the key to her longevity.

The Gerontological Society of China named Alimiha as the country’s oldest person in a 2013 report, and a London body known as Carrying the Flag Carrying World Records recognises her claim to be the world’s oldest person.

But Guinness World Records, with a different standard of proof of age, lists Jeanne Calment as the world’s oldest ever person.

Frenchwoman Ms Calment was born in 1875 and died in 1997, having lived 122 years and 164 days.

The oldest man ever was Jiroemon Kimura of Japan, who died on 12th June 2013 after having lived 116 years and 54 days.

Tips to make traveling with kids easier

Traveling can be hard, especially if kids are involved. Any parent knows that traveling with kids can be tricky, challenging, and fun all at the same time. As a matter of fact, the process might seem like an endless amount of things to do, all for a short time. Like in almost every aspect of life, however, with tons of preparation and patience, anyone (including you) can plan a family trip that’s trouble free. This article will focus on how you can make traveling with kids easy, exciting, and yes, even relaxing. Family Travel Tips Keep track of flight details: When traveling by air, it can be stressful (and even impossible) to schedule your kids’ bedtimes during long trips. Let’s say, for example, you’re traveling across the globe, from Lagos to somewhere in America or Europe. One way in particular to get around this, is to book a morning flight. That way, parents can just put their kids to bed a little earlier than usual the night before, ensuring that they’ll be well rested for the long journey ahead. European-Waterways-Family-Travel Traveling with the right type of luggage: When traveling, having a strong, durable, and reliable piece of luggage is an absolute must for kids. Children should be able to transport all their necessities in a bag that’s easy for them to carry and sized correctly for their height and age. Bright colors and patterns are not only fun for kids, but they also allow them to easily spot their belongings. The majority of bags nowadays have special features like luggage- backpack convertibility, and even ride-ability. Fortunately, there are a lot of great options for kids when it comes to luggage. If you’re a parent traveling by car, using a child safety seat (car seat) is the best protection you can give your child while traveling. These seats are designed to reduce the risk of neck injury in case of an accident. Every state in Nigeria requires that infants and small children be restrained – and with good reason according to the FRSC. As parents, once you select a seat for your child, be sure to try it out. Also, don't forget to use your seatbelt. Pack snacks and cool gadgets: Before leaving your home, make sure to bring ample snacks for the entire family. Homemade foods like puffpuff, cakes, chin-chin, cookies or biscuits, etcare just a few snacks parents can pack for the journey. Also, take lots of water along(either satchet water or bottled water depending on that which you can afford). Lastly, aside from including your child’s favorite snacks, be sure to remember their favorite handheld gadgets inside your bags. You might also want to throw in small earphones or headphones. It’ll be helpful if they want to enjoy movies and/or television shows during the ride. FAM U I think it’s safe to say we all know how the airport security measures and lineups are taken seriously. That being said, it can be quite nerve-wracking for some kids to go through all the personnel, inspections, and long lines. As a solution, inform and educate them in advance on what’s expected of them at the airport and discuss the environment if they’re old enough to understand. Organize their personal belongings ahead of time and make sure they aren’t wearing any belts and don’t have other metal objects with them that might attract security’s attention. Whatever the case may be, try to make the entire process fun. Consider a hotel at the airport: Most of the time, airports are viewed as a wicked place; that we must go through in order to make it to our flight on time. Staying nearby, however, at a hotel that’s just steps away from the terminal can be rewarding for families traveling with young children. Another option for parents, especially if you’ve arranged an early morning or late night flight would be to stay at an airport hotel before you head out.   With summer vacation gradually approaching, the pressure might be on to plan a family vacation. In fact, if all doesn’t go according to plan, make another plan. For example, if plane tickets are too expensive, look into renting a vehicle and driving your family to your destination. The only problem, however, is that children of all ages get restless no matter what. Meaning that parents might spend more time managing their child’s emotions than enjoying the drive.   Don't allow the guilty of letting travel obstacles give us the blues, but that shouldn’t change anything. It’s best to have a few backup options in your back pocket just in case someone needs a nap, or you just aren’t in the mood to do what you planned, you can switch gears without throwing everyone’s day off.

Practical ways to boost your confidence

happy-ass-black-people1 They know that no matter what obstacles come their way, they have the ability to get past them. Self-confident people tend to see their lives in a positive light even when things aren't going so well, and they are typically satisfied with and respect themselves. Wouldn't it be amazing to have this kind of self-confidence, every day of the week? Low self-confidence isn't a life sentence. Self-confidence can be learned, practiced, and mastered--just like any other skill. Once you master it, everything in your life will change for the better. It comes down to one simple question: If you don't believe in yourself, how do you expect anybody else to? Try some of the tips listed below. Don't just read them, begin to practice them daily, beginning today. You might have to fake it at first and merely appear to be self-confident, but eventually you will begin to feel the foundation of self-confidence grow within you. With some time and practice (this is not an overnight phenomenon), you too can be a self-confident person, both inside and out, whom others admire.

  1. Stay away from negativity and bring on the positivity
This is the time to really evaluate your inner circle, including friends and family. This is a tough one, but it's time to seriously consider getting away from those individuals who put you down and shred your confidence. Be positive, even if you're not feeling it quite yet. Put some positive enthusiasm into your interactions with others and hit the ground running, excited to begin your next project. Stop focusing on the problems in your life and instead begin to focus on solutions and making positive changes.
  1. Change your body language and image
This is where posture, smiling, eye contact, and speech slowly come into play. Just the simple act of pulling your shoulders back gives others the impression that you are a confident person. Smiling will not only make you feel better, but will make others feel more comfortable around you. Imagine a person with good posture and a smile and you'll be envisioning someone who is self-confident. Look at the person you are speaking to, not at your shoes--keeping eye contact shows confidence. Last, speak slowly. Research has proved that those who take the time to speak slowly and clearly feel more self-confidence and appear more self-confident to others. The added bonus is they will actually be able to understand what you are saying. Go the extra mile and style your hair, give yourself a clean shave, and dress nicely. Not only will this make you feel better about yourself, but others are more likely to perceive you as successful and self-confident as well. A great tip: When you purchase a new outfit, practice wearing it at home first to get past any wardrobe malfunctions before heading out. black-
  1. Don't accept failure and get rid of the negative voices in your head
Never give up. Never accept failure. There is a solution to everything, so why would you want to throw in the towel? Make this your new mantra. Succeeding through great adversity is a huge confidence booster. Low self-confidence is often caused by the negative thoughts running through our minds on an endless track. If you are constantly bashing yourself and saying you're not good enough, aren't attractive enough, aren't smart enough or athletic enough, and on and on, you are creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. You are becoming what you are preaching inside your head, and that's not good. The next time you hear that negativity in your head, switch it immediately to a positive affirmation and keep it up until it hits the caliber of a self-confidence boost.
  1. Be prepared
Learn everything there is to know about your field, job, presentation--whatever is next on your "to conquer" list. If you are prepared, and have the knowledge to back it up, your self-confidence will soar.
  1. For tough times, when all else fails: Create a great list
Life is full of challenges and there are times when it's difficult to keep our self-confidence up. Sit down right now and make a list of all the things in your life that you are thankful for, and another list of all the things you are proud of accomplishing. Once your lists are complete, post them on your refrigerator door, on the wall by your desk, on your bathroom mirror--somewhere where you can easily be reminded of what an amazing life you have and what an amazing person you really are. If you feel your self-confidence dwindling, take a look at those lists and let yourself feel and be inspired all over again by you.
