Female Student Shot To Death For Fighting Off Armed Robbers Who Tried To Rape Her

The escalating incidence of students shot dead by dare devil men of the underworld is frightening to say the least. 
And this is happening as government is busy fighting Boko Haram on all fronts while other evil vices seem to have taken over- as armed robbers, cultists, rapists and ritualists are having a field day unperturbed.
According to popular blogger Linda Ikeji, classmates and friends of the slain student sent the story to her. The student, Wunmi Adebayo, was shot at point blank last night when she went to visit a friend of hers in his house at Golden Estate in Ijebu Ode, Ogun state.
The 200 level student was visiting the said friend when they were suddenly attacked by armed robbers who robbed them of their possessions and later shot Wunmi in the face because she fought them off as they attempted to rape her.
Her corpse has been deposited at the mortuary. Wunmi was the first child of her parents and friends say she was very jovial, friendly and kind hearted. Her candlelight procession will hold tomorrow at skyfield in Lagos.
May her soul rest in peace.

 Is this child abuse, or does pushing your kid to extremes help make them stronger? This guy had his kid out in the snow wearing only underwear and sneakers!!! Rubbish punishent!!
A Chinese dad on a visit to New York made his 4-year-old son run and do push-ups in the snow to develop a “masculine temperament”  while the boy was dressed only in gym shoes and a pair of yellow underpants.
The dad, He Liesheng, insisted he was simply trying to get his son to develop a “masculine temperment.”
He claims his brand of tough love has helped his son, Ho Yide, overcome developmental difficulties after he was born with water on the brain.
But reaction to He’s video, which went viral on the web after the dopey dad shared it with friends, has been harsh in his native China.

Serena Williams Wins U.S. Open Racking Up Her 15th Grand Slam Title

                                 Power shot: Williams hadn't dropped a set in the tournament, losing only 19 games through six matches before Sunday

Finally tested, even trailing, at the U.S. Open, Serena Williams turned things around just in time to defeat Victoria Azarenka on Sunday.
Two points from defeat, Williams suddenly regained her composure and her strokes, coming back to beat top-ranked Victoria Azarenka on Sunday night for her fourth championship at Flushing Meadows and 15th Grand Slam title overall.
‘I honestly can’t believe I won. I really was preparing my runner-up speech, because I thought, “Man, she’s playing so great,” Williams said during the trophy presentation after the 2-hour, 18-minute match, adding: ‘I’m really shocked.’
The victory came as little surprise to sports analysts, however, as Williams hadn’t dropped a set in the tournament, losing only 19 games through six matches before Sunday.
The win at the Open comes months after she had an unexpectedly quick exit from the French Open in May, which marked , the American’s only first-round exit in 49 career major tournaments. Since then, she is 26-1, winning Wimbledon and the London Olympics.

Shop Owner Lifts Barack Obama Off The Ground Out of Joy .

Florida pizza shop owner Scott Van Duzer lifted President Barack Obama a solid foot off the ground in a bear hug during an unscripted stop at his Fort Pierce, Fla., store.

Van Duzer is a regstered republican who says he'll vote for Obama in November. They had a very friendly conversation as seen below:

"Scott, what's going on, man," the president called as he arrived. "Let me tell you, you are like the biggest pizza shop owner I've ever seen."
"Everybody, look at these guns," Obama said as he chatted with Van Duzer, who is 6'3" and weighs 260 pounds. "If I eat your pizza will I look like that?"
"The two men laughed. They embraced. Van Duzer lifed Obama a good foot off the ground," according to the pool report filed by Politico's Reid Epstein (who is featured giving his best "gadzooks!" look on the far right in the picture below).
"Look at that!" Obama said upon his return to terra firma. "Man, are you a powerlifter or what?"
Well, yes. The pool report notes that Van Duzer later said he can bench press 350 pounds.
My question now is if our president Goodluck Jonathan enters your shop will look happy and even lift him like this?
