Beyoncé Studies now available at Rutgers University

Beyoncé has made us long for our university days like never before with this amazing news that you can now study her and her amazingness as an actual degree. WE KNOW.

Thanks to Rutgers University in New Jersey, students can now enrol on a brand new course called 'Feminist Perspectives: Politicizing Beyoncé'.

Created by PhD student Kevin Allred, the course will combine Queen Bey's empowering lyrics and super sexy videos with readings from feminist writers.
'This isn't a course about Beyoncé's political engagement or how many times she performed during President Obama's inauguration weekend,' he told the University paper.

'Rather, the performer's music and career are used as lenses to explore American race, gender, and sexual politics.'

He added: 'It's important to shift students away from simply being consumers of media toward thinking more critically about what they're engaging in on a regular basis.'

Australian Open 2014: Nadal beats Federer to reach final

Rafael Nadal powered past Roger Federer to reach the Australian Open final and maintain his dominance over the 17-time Grand Slam champion.

The world number one came through 7-6 (7-4) 6-3 6-3 and goes on to face Federer's compatriot, Stanislas Wawrinka, for the title on Sunday.

And the Spaniard, 27, will be a strong favourite to claim his 14th Slam, and become only the third man to win all four majors at least twice.

Nadal was in brilliant form in his 33rd meeting with Federer, overcoming a blister on his racquet hand and, if anything, growing stronger as the match progressed.

Federer, 32, had captured the headlines throughout the tournament with his eye-catching form, built around some excellent serving, but he was constantly under pressure against Nadal.

The Spaniard missed two backhands on break points in game seven as both men struggled off that wing, and another went begging in game nine, but he dominated the tie-break.

12 Year Old Ejigbo Victim Advocates Death Penalty For Perpetrators


Nike, a 12 year old girl who was one of the three victims of suspected OPC members who tortured 3 pepper sellers in Ejigbo, Lagos state, for allegedly stealing pepper worth 50 naira, has advocated death penalty for the suspects for causing her step-sister’s death.

Nike, who was the third and youngest of the victims, appeared at the public hearing ordered by the Lagos State House of Assembly to investigate the incident which occurred in February 2012.

At the hearing, she identified three men as the ones who tortured herself and her step sister for stealing pepper worth 50 Naira.

She further revealed that one of the suspects (who was without a shirt in the viral video) had promised to set a trap for her because she rejected his advances.

She identified the man who wore jeans as ‘Tirin,’ the man who wore native attire called ‘ankara’ as Jibola, the third man, ‘Abolore’ and ‘Baba Oja.’

She also said that she witnessed the murder of a certain individual by the said men at the same location where they tortured her family members.

Nike, who was unaware of her sister’s death as a result of the severe injuries sustained, was asked what penalty she wanted for the criminals and she said “the people that kill somebody, they use to kill them.”

At the hearing, the Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly,  Adeyemi Kuforiji, redeemed the 1 million Naira promise made by the ad-hoc Chairman to the family who helped in locating the victims. Part of the money was given to the victims.

The case has been handed over to the Office of the Public Defender.

Long Distance Relationships

By Stephan Labossiere

To start this off there is a quote I found online by Roger de Bussy-Rabutin which states “Absence is to love as wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small and kindles the great.” Let that marinate for a second. The topic of long distance relationships comes up all the time with people seeking advice and guidance. Is it a smart move? Can it really work? How should one approach entering into a long distance relationship? There are so many angles to discuss but today I’m just going to give a general overview on how I see long distance relationships.

Victoria Beckham on Spice Girls Reunion: "I Won't Ever Do It Again"

The 39-year-old said that despite rumours she will team up with Emma Bunton, 37, Mel B, 38, Mel C, 40, and Geri Halliwell, 41, for one more hurrah it’s time for her ‘to leave the party.’

‘I won’t ever do it again,’ the fashion designer said. ‘Doing the Olympics was an incredible honour. I was so proud to do it; proud to be British…

‘That was a perfect time to say, “That’s great. Thank you to everybody, but no more.” Sometimes you’ve got to know when it’s time to leave the party.’

Nigerian Pastor Arrested For Alleged Fake Currency Printing


The Kogi State Command of the department of State Security Service as arrested a clergyman, Reverend Godson Akubuiro, his children and his 15 man syndicate for printing and circulation of fake Naira notes

The state Director Security Service (SSS) Mr Mike Fubara told journalists that the major breakthrough came as a result of painstaking investigation for over four months which took the operatives of SSS to Ikorodu in Lagos where they were all arrested.

Fake currency printers and distributors used by the suspects were seized by the SSS.

He told journalist that the prime suspect reverend Godson Akubuiro who is the general overseer of the Mountain of Breakthrough Deliverance Ministry also known as land of solution located at plot 7 Mountain of Breakthrough Avenue Koya Estate, Igbo Olomu, Agric, Ikorodu Lagos had been into printing and circulating of fake Naira notes.

Russian President Putin defends anti-gay law

Russian President Vladimir Putin has offered new assurances to gay athletes and fans attending the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics next month. Yet he defended Russia's anti-gay law by equating gays with pedophiles and said Russia needs to "cleanse" itself of homosexuality if it wants to increase its birth rate.

Putin's comments in an interview broadcast Sunday with Russian and foreign television stations showed the wide gulf between the perception of homosexuality in Russia versus the West.

A Russian law passed last year banning "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations" among minors has caused an international outcry.

Putin refused to answer a question from the BBC on whether he believes that people are born gay or become gay. The Russian law, however, suggests that information about homosexuality can influence a child's sexual orientation.

The law has contributed to growing animosity toward gays in Russian society, with rights activists reporting a rise in harassment and abuse.

International worries about how gays will be treated in Sochi have been met with assurances from Russian officials and Olympics organizers that there will be no discrimination in Sochi, and Putin reiterated that stance.

Ana Ivanovic dumps Serena Williams from Australian Open in the fourth round

Serbia's Ana Ivanovic stunned world number one Serena Williams at the Australian Open on Sunday with a 4-6 6-3 6-3 fourth-round upset at Rod Laver Arena.

Ivanovic ended the American's 25-match winning streak to reach her first grand slam quarter-final since the 2012 U.S. Open with an inspired display of clean hitting.

"It's amazing. I just tried to play the best I could," a thrilled Ivanovic said in a courtside interview.

"You guys have been amazing. I'm so thrilled," she told the crowd.

Ivanovic, a former world number one, had never taken a set off Williams in their four previous encounters.

A winner at Roland Garros at 2008, she was aggressive from the outset, breaking Williams at 2-2 in each of the first two sets and holding firm in the second to draw level.

A shell-shocked Williams was then broken at 1-0 in the deciding set when the Serbian laced a brilliant return down the line.

With the Rod Laver Arena crowd roaring their support for the underdog, Ivanovic coolly raised three match points and sealed the tournament's biggest upset when Williams missed a return.

Ivanovic will play the winner of Casey Dellacqua and Eugenie Bouchard for a place in the semi-finals.

"It was not easy playing such a champion and I had never beaten her before, but she is just a human and I know that she has pressure on her too," she added.

"So I just went out there and was swinging at the ball and I did that really well."

You will be jailed 14 years and I your supporter 10 years. Go to a country that can use your expertise and where u can live in peace and contribute to that country’s quota and be safe. As time goes on, change your citizenship.

Nigeria does not want you or love you. Our government says it’s not OK to be yourselves. They train our ppl and children to be fake. They attribute homosexuality to the bible yet they have broken every single 10 commandment. Many people will end up killing you via vigilante justice one day like in Uganda.

Leave before its too late. Do not closet your entire life. Good Luck and Best Wishes in your travels. Most of u gays have my number already if you need help with the asylum process. Call me if you need me as I know you all individually.

Relationship: 10 Signs he's a desperate man

In the dating world, a desperate man is one who is overeager, anxious, presumptuous and willing to be with any woman to avoid being alone. Women can spot desperation in a man from miles away, and if you suffer from it, you'll never stand a chance at getting any girl.

A man who is desperate may have a strong want and desire to have a relationship; however, due to having little experience in the romance and dating department, his behaviors can indicate low-self esteem and a host of other issues that turn women off and can actually be viewed as creepy and disturbing.

Here are 10 warning signs that can help you determine if you fit under the portrait of a desperate man:

Read Tolu Ogunlesi "Open Letter" to President Goodluck Jonathan

Dear Mr. President,

I am constrained to write this open letter to you before this season of letters comes to a close. I will go straight to the issues at stake. Let’s start with the level of toxic-ness in the air, sustained to a large extent by the attitude of your array of spokespersons, who today do little more than insult and dismiss everyone deemed to be an “enemy” of the President. Just as you have a point when you said that the easiest way to be deemed “progressive” is to abuse Jonathan, it has also become that criticising the President quickly earns one all sorts of unprintable labels from the your camp.

Everyone in your camp seems obsessed with the fact that the world is against you. One adviser recently accused everyone criticising you of lacking home training. Another, who made his name writing brilliant articles that skewered the governments of the day, recently lamented — without any sense of irony — that all Nigerian media is in the hands of the opposition.

Cristiano Ronaldo wins 2013 Ballon d'Or

Cristiano Ronaldo ended the four-year dominance of Lionel Messi when he was awarded the 2013 FIFA Ballon d`Or in Zurich on Monday.

The tearful 28-year-old Real Madrid and Portugal star had been the overwhelming favourite to pip Barcelona and Argentina star Messi, winner the previous four years, and France`s Franck Ribery, who won the treble with Bayern Munich in 2013.

Ronaldo edged Lionel Messi (Barcelona/Argentina), who had won all three Ballon d'Or Awards since its merger with the FIFA World Player of the Year in 2009, and Franck Ribery (Bayern Munich/France) to win the marquee individual honor.

Lionel Messi says Cristiano Ronaldo is a worthy winner of the 2013 Fifa Ballon d'Or after he finished runner-up to the Portugal star at Monday's gala in Zurich.

Nigerian authorities asserted that the rogue former banking executive siphoned over N200 billion from the commercial bank he ran. Officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission also accused Mr. Akingbola of using his loot to buy swanky properties in Europe and other parts of the world. The former InterContinental Bank chief also reportedly manipulated his bank’s stocks in insider trading deals.

Pope Francis named his first batch of cardinals on Sunday, choosing 19 men from Asia, Africa, Latin America and elsewhere, including the developing nations of Haiti and Burkina Faso, in line with his belief that the church must pay more attention to the poor.
