Two toddlers shot by playmate at Michigan daycare.

TWO TODDLERS ARE in critical condition after a playmate accidentally shot them with a loaded gun at a daycare in the US state of Michigan.Police in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn said the child managed to get a hold of a loaded gun yesterday inside a private home that functioned as a daycare.The toddler fired either one or two shots that struck two children both three years old, according to US media which also reported that there were multiple guns inside the home.“I’m not going to guess on what occurred in there, but obviously there were weapons in proximity to where kids are, and that’s totally unacceptable to me,” Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad.As many as 1.7 million American children live in homes with an unlocked, loaded gun, according to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun violence, and the incident was the latest case of children being injured by unsecured firearms.Nearly 1,300 children die and 5,790 are treated for gunshot wounds each year in the United States, according to a recent study published in the medical journal Pediatrics.Michigan state law does not prohibit guns at child care facilities, but requires them to be unloaded and stored in a locked location away from children.The home daycare was run by Samantha Eubanks, herself a mother of six who regularly took care of other children according to neighbors and family members.Eubanks did not permit her husband Tim to keep weapons in their home, according to a woman identified as her sister.“She would always say don’t you ever bring a gun in this house, it’s not going to happen,” Ashley Escobedo told assembled reporters at the scene.The police chief said that the investigation was ongoing and charges were possible.

The sad story of a young woman who almost lost her life due to serious bacterial infection.She’d only made a careless mistake, something which all women can do.Everything started when she fainted in her bathroom one day.Before that,her health had worsened and she has experienced excessive hair loss. She also lost a couple of nails.When she reached the hospital, doctors diagnosed her with a toxic shock due to an unusual bacterial infection caused by tampons.As her health deteriorated rapidly,doctors had no other option, but to put her in an induced coma.This was the only way she could survive the treatment. 8 days she was brought back,but she couldn’t remember anything.In fact,she couldn’t even recognize her daughters.Specialists are trying to raise awareness among women and young girls that tampons can pose a serious health risk unless used adequately.Proper hygiene of the intimate parts is a must, especially during a period, and tampons should be changed frequently.In fact, they should never be left inside for more than 8 hours because the blood, warm and wet environment create the perfect environment for proliferation of life-threatening bacteria.

Nerf guns can cause serious eye injuries and internal bleeding, doctors warn.

BULLETS FROM NERF guns can cause serious eye injuries, doctors from a London eye hospital have warned.The warning comes after three people, two adults and one child,were presented to hospital on separate occasions with serious eye injuries after being shot at by a Nerf gun.All three patients were in pain, had blurred vision and all had internal bleeding in the eye, according to doctors from the Moorfields Eye Hospital.One of the three patients was a child, who had also developed swelling of the outer layer of the eye, the cornea,and the inner layer of the eye,the retina, from the force and speed of the bullet fired by the gun.The patients were given eye drops, and when they went for their check-ups their sight had returned and the bleeding had stopped.However, writing in the BMJ, the doctors warned that these types of injuries can have a serious impact.They said that a projectile Nerf bullet travelling at high speed can cause irreversible damage.Children should protect their eyes when playing with these guns, they advise.“Sports in which the risk of [eye] trauma is relatively high, such as squash ball,have seen an introduction of protective eyewear in the UK,”the authors wrote.“This case series emphasises the seriousness of [eye] injury from Nerf gun projectiles and calls into consideration the need for protective eyewear with their use,” they said.One of the injured patients commented that the bullets, also known as darts, were generic versions and were harder than the branded versions.This is something that parents may not be aware of, the authors said.They suggested that the safe age limit may need to be reviewed. Most Nerf products are aged 8 and over.In a statement,Hasbro,the company who makes Nerf guns, said:“Product safety is of utmost concern at Hasbro. Nerf products are designed based on years of consumer insights and research, and undergo rigorous reviews and testing to assure that they are safe and fun to play with,and meet or exceed global standards and regulations.”Hasbro said that Nerf foam bullets and foam rounds are not hazardous when used properly.Consumers must never aim Nerf blasters at a person’s eyes or face, should only use the foam darts and foam rounds designed for specific Nerf blasters, and never modify darts or blasters.“The Nerf brand encourages parents and caregivers to be involved in aspects of their children’s development, including play,”Hasbro said.“Ultimately,a parent or caregiver knows his or her child best and is best equipped to make decisions on what forms of play and entertainment are most appropriate for his or her child.”

A woman has passed US Marine infantry training for the first time.

A FEMALE US Marine has become the first woman to complete the Corps’ notoriously rigorous training course for infantry officers.Many women serve in the Marines and other branches of America’s armed forces but the woman, who has requested that her name not be released, is the first to make it through the Marine Corps’ 13-week infantry officer training course.“I am proud of this officer and those in her class,” Marine Corps commandant General Robert Neller said.“Marines expect and rightfully deserve competent and capable leaders, and these (Infantry Officer Course) graduates met every training requirement as they prepare for the next challenge of leading infantry Marines; ultimately, in combat,” Neller added.As an infantry officer, the woman, a lieutenant, will be assigned to lead a platoon of around 40 Marines. She will join the 1st Marine Division in Camp Pendleton,California, the Marines said.A total of 131 Marines started the infantry officer training course in July and 88 graduated today in Quantico, Virginia,the Marine Corps said.Three dozen female Marine Corps officers had previously signed up for the infantry training program but failed to finish, according to the Marine Corps Times.On its Twitter feed,the Marine Corps released a video showing the woman taking part in exercises in the mountains alongside male infantry officer candidates.Women make up about 15% of the nearly 1.4 million active duty troops in the US armed forces.Former president Barack Obama opened up all military positions to women, including combat units,in March 2016.Women were previously technically barred from combat, but thousands of American servicewomen saw fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq nonetheless.The Marines have been seen as the branch of the US military that has been the least accepting of women in combat roles and the infantry plays a special role in the lore of the Corps.Earlier this year, the Marine Corps was rocked by the revelation of a secret Facebook group called “Marines United” where nude pictures of female Marines were posted without their consent.In 2015,two women became the first to graduate from the US Army’s elite Ranger School.In July,a woman reportedly applied to become a member of the celebrated Navy SEALs but dropped out before completing the selection program.

Saudi Arabia will allow women to drive for the first time in its history.

SAUDI ARABIA WILL allow women to drive from next June, state media announced this evening, in a historic decision that makes the Gulf kingdom the last country in the world to permit women behind the wheel.The shock announcement comes after a years-long resistance from women’s rights activists, some of whom were jailed for defying the ban on female driving.The decision risks riling religious conservatives and is part of the government’s major reform drive, conceived by powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.“The royal decree will implement the provisions of traffic regulations, including the issuance of driving licences for men and women alike,” the Saudi Press Agency said.It added that the decree would be implemented from June 2018.he announcement follows a dazzling gender-mixed celebration of Saudi national day at the weekend, the first of its kind, which aimed to spotlight the kingdom’s reform push, analysts say, despite a backlash from religious conservatives.Men and women danced in the streets to drums and thumping electronic music, in scenes that are a stunning anomaly in a country known for its tight gender segregation and an austere vision of Islam.Women were also allowed into a sports stadium  previously a male-only arena to watch a musical concert, a move that chimes with the government’s Vision 2030 plan for social and economic reform as the kingdom prepares for a post-oil era.With more than half the country aged under 25, Prince Mohammed, the architect of Vision 2030, is seen as catering to the aspiration of the youth with an array of entertainment options and promoting more women in the workforce.The gambit to loosen social restrictions, which had so far not translated into more political and civil rights, seeks to push criticism over a recent political crackdown out of the public eye, some analysts say.Authorities this month arrested more than two dozen people, including influential clerics and activists,in what critics decried as a coordinated crackdown.Ultra-conservative Saudi Arabia has some of the world’s tightest restrictions on women, despite ambitious government reforms aimed at boosting female employment.Under the country’s guardianship system, a male family member  normally the father, husband or brother must grant permission for a woman’s study, travel and other activities.But the kingdom appears to be relaxing some norms as part of the Vision 2030 plan.Today’s announcement comes at a crucial time for Saudi Arabia.The OPEC kingpin is in a battle for regional influence with arch-rival Iran, bogged down in a controversial military intervention in neighbouring Yemen and at loggerheads with fellow US Gulf ally Qatar.The 32-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed is set to be the first millennial to occupy the throne in a country where half the population is under 25, although the timing of his ascension remains unknown.Already viewed as the de facto ruler controlling all the major levers of government, from defence to the economy, the heir apparent is seen as stamping out traces of internal dissent before any formal transfer of power from his 81-year-old father King Salman.

A Californian eight-year-old boy was beaten to death by his mother's ex-boyfriend while he was trying to protect his younger sister from molestation.Dante Daniels was attacked by Deandre Chaney Jr., 23, with a hammer on September 1st in South Sacremento,California.

Former US congressman Anthony Weiner sentenced to 21 months in sexting case.

Anthony Weiner.
FORMER US CONGRESSMAN Anthony Weiner has been sentenced to 21 months in prison for sexting with a 15-year-old girl in a case that rocked Hillary Clinton’s campaign for the White House in the closing days of the race and may have cost her the presidency.Weiner, 53, dropped his head into his hand and wept as the sentence was announced by Judge Denise Cote. He must surrender to prison officials by 6 November.The sentencing completed the sordid downfall of the New York Democrat, whose penchant for exchanging lewd messages and photos with young women online destroyed his career in Congress in 2011, doomed his bid for mayor of New York in 2013, wrecked his marriage to Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, and became entangled in the 2016 presidential campaign.Admitting “I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse”, Weiner pleaded guilty in May to transferring obscene material to a minor, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, for illicit contact with a North Carolina teenager.He sought to be spared from prison, tearfully telling Cote that he was “a very sick man for a very long time.”Weiner, weeping as he read from a written statement on a page he held in front of him, called his crime his “rock bottom”.Prosecutors said he sent her porn and got her to take her clothes off and touch herself on Skype. Assistant US Attorney Amanda Kramer urged Cote to give Weiner a significant prison sentence to end his “tragic cycle” of sexting.The FBI was investigating Weiner’s contact with the high school student when it came across emails on his laptop between Abedin and Clinton, prompting then-FBI Director James Comey to announce in late October 2016 that he was reopening the probe of Clinton’s use of a private computer server.Two days before Election Day, the FBI announced there was nothing new in the emails. But Clinton has blamed Comey’s handling of the episode more than any other factor for her loss to Donald Trump. In a recent NBC interview, she called the FBI director’s intervention “the determining factor” in her defeat.Weiner’s lawyers had argued in court papers that he was undergoing treatment and was profoundly sorry for subjecting the girl to his “deep sickness”. They also portrayed her as an instigator, saying she wanted to generate material for a book and possibly influence the presidential election.Prosecutors responded by arguing the victim’s motives were irrelevant to the punishment and said Weiner’s habit of getting caught sexting “suggests a dangerous level of denial and lack of self-control”.Weiner, wearing his wedding ring, seemed pensive just before today’s hearing began. His parents were in the courtroom but not his wife. He and Abedin are currently going through divorce proceedings.Weiner’s behaviour in all its lurid detail  including his online alias ‘Carlos Danger’ and a selfie of his bulging underwear  turned him and his last name into an irresistible punchline for late-night comics and mortified his wife again and again. The couple, who have a 5-year-old, are getting divorced.In her new memoir, What Happened, Clinton revealed that Weiner’s wife “looked stricken” and burst into tears upon learning her husband had triggered Comey’s ‘October surprise’.“This man is going to be the death of me,” Abedin was quoted as saying.

One death is just too many': Parents told to put high-vis vests on kids as they cycle and walk to school.

WITH CHILDREN ACROSS the country already in school over the last couple of weeks, parents are being urged to think about their safety on their route to school and ensure they are visible to drivers and other road-users.For the seventh year running, the Road Safety Authority (RSA) and ESB Networks will distribute free high visibility vests to every child in school. Speaking to today, RSA chief executive Moyagh Murdock said children are particularly vulnerable road users are they “don’t have the same hazard perception” as adults.“So really the message is to get them as well protected as possible and make sure everyone is aware of them out there,” she said. The back-to-school campaign is aimed, in particular, at children who cycle to school as the number of cyclists killed on the roads this year has risen.However the RSA is also encouraging parents to dress their children in high-visibility gear for the walk to school or the bus stop, especially in the winter months.“Even walking to the bus stop, some of the bus stops are not much more than a pole in a footpath that says ‘this is where the bus stops’ and the lighting isn’t great around them, and they’re small and people aren’t expecting to see somebody small out there. The evenings will draw in very quickly, we can even see now the weather has changed for August, really as the evenings draw in, make sure the children are out there with the reflective clothing,” Murdock said.“Thankfully, this year the numbers of school children involved in serious and fatal crashes and accidents like this has not been as bad as some years, but always one is just too many. What we do know is that if you’re wearing high-vis clothing you’re much more likely to be seen.”

Dublin private school suspends two boys for racist abuse and violent threats.

TWO FIRST-YEAR students at a private Dublin secondary school have been suspended after making death threats and racist comments to a black classmate. The three boys were part of a Whatsapp group which was created when they all began their classes earlier this month.One of the children then started receiving abuse on the messaging app by two boys in his class.What started out as mocking then turned into more violent and racist exchanges.In messages seen by, the boy, who is 12 years old, is referred to as a “fucking n****r”. They then threaten to attack the boy.His parents noticed that their child was acting differently and discovered the racist slurs and violent threat on his phone. After speaking with the principal of the school, it was decided to suspend the two boys who are believed to have sent the messages and the board of management is now deciding whether or not to expel them.The school has been contacted for comment yesterday but received no correspondence from the school by time of publication.A complaint has yet to be filed to gardaí relating to the incident. However, it is understood that the parents of the child have consulted solicitors on the matter.Alex Cooney, chief executive of CyberSafeIreland, warned parents to be vigilant about online safety and said that incidents of bullying and threats are “sadly too common”.“There are a lot of incidents that we deal with. But advice for parents is to have regular and open conversations with your children about what they’re doing online. Make it normal to have that conversation.“Parents should set up clear ground rules on when and where they’re using their smartphones.“Don’t let them disappear into their rooms with their phones. If they’re in the living room or kitchen or wherever, you can throw your eye over.”

Hate Preacher Who Encouraged Children As Young As 3 To 'Kill And Be Killed' For ISIS Faces Jail.

A hate preacher who told children as young as three that martyrdom is the "supreme success" while encouraging support for ISIS at his charity-funded mosque is facing jail.Iman Kamran Sabir Hussain, 40, asked Allah to "give the Islamic State the victory" during a sermon in Stoke-on-Trent during Ramadan.His audiences included Asian men and young children aged between three and 15, according to an undercover law enforcement officer named Qasim who recorded some of the meetings.Toddlers could be heard babbling as Hussain talked about bullets, sword wounds and killing on one of the tapes.He said: "What's the nature of life? That you are killed, that you kill and that you are killed. This is your part of the fight in the way of Allah, to kill and be killed."In return for this Allah will give you an everlasting life of pleasure."Hussain also referred to an "eternal life of enjoyment" before claiming that martyrdom was "the supreme success".Children's voices were also heard as Hussain referred to going before Allah on Judgement Day "with the bullet wounds and the sword wounds and you are raised in that situation with the blood still coming from your body".Hussain was found guilty of six counts of encouraging terrorism and two counts of encouraging support of a proscribed organisation following an Old Bailey trial.The court heard he was jailed for 14 months in 2008 for perverting the course of justice by intimidating jurors outside a trial he was due to give evidence in as a defence witness.He stood in the dock wearing a skullcap as the jury announced their decision after nine hours and 44 minutes deliberation.Hussain will be sentenced on September 28.

We need Ibadan State-Ibadan people cried out

We need Ibadan State
I want to crave the indulgence of all Ibadan people, especially the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII) and the Mogajis. I want to suggest that all Ibadan indigenes fight and ask for Ibadan State.I don’t know why Ibadanmesi are so silent about Ibadan State. Ibadan needs to join the old regional capitals which had, for many years now, been made new states in their own right, for example, Kaduna and Enugu. Therefore, it should be possible to carve out a State from the densely populated Oyo State. Ibadan people, please do this for next generation to be proud of you and for the sake of your ancestors too.

During the reign of Oba Odulana Odugade, whenever he gave an address, he always asked for the State. But since his demise and since an Ibadan son became governor, the agitation for Ibadan State has stopped.

If Ibadan State is acualised, this will usher in sustainable developmet for Ibadan. It will also make Ibadan indigenes to be more committed to their fatherland.
