Check Out the N666m Bachelor Pad Scott Disick Bought after Rocky Year with Kourtney Kardashian

Scott Disick already shares a home in Calabasas with his baby mama Kourtney Kardashian. But on December 23, he snapped up another property which is in his name only. According to MailOnline, the $3.7m- N666million bachelor pad is in Beverly Hills, about an hour's drive from where his children Mason, aged five, Penelope, aged two, and newborn Reign reside.  

It looks more like the home of a bachelor rather than a father of three - even though it has five bedrooms and six bathrooms - because there aren't too many play areas and the swimming pool is not gated. For the past month, the tension between Scott and Kourtney has been explored on Kourtney & Khloe Take The Hamptons. It is not known if Kourtney has kicked Scott out of her $5.8m Calabasas

Guys, 13 Weight Loss Resolutions You Shouldn't Make

Get this: 30% of all New Year's resolutions are broken before February! ''People tend to fall off the weight-loss wagon so quickly because their goals are unrealistic," says Toby Amidor, a registered dietitian based in New York City. "When people feel as though they've failed, they tend to throw in the towel for good instead of giving their resolution another shot."

So guys, here are common weight loss resolutions that almost always backfire.

  • "I want to lose 20kg"

Dropping 20kg is a great long-term goal, but dieters tend to fall off track when they have such a lofty resolution.
Revised resolution: Lose 1 pound per week 
"Instead of taking on such a big task, focus on losing one pound a week by setting small diet and exercise goals. For example, resolve to pick skim dairy over whole and pledge to work out 30 minutes, three times a week. You'll be surprised how small tweaks can result in major change."

  • "I'm going to try the ________ diet"

Obiagaeli Ezekwesili Named Y!/ Person of the Year 2014

Surely, you know this, that as you celebrated Christmas on the 25th of December this year, perhaps safely with friends and family, a crew of citizens like you, and like us, gathered yet again on the streets of Abuja, under the aegis of the #BringBackOurGirls movement, to continue daily sit outs that have been holding for more than 200 days now.

They also marched the streets of Abuja, distributing fliers, making the same request they have made since May, while making the same simple request they started since April, irrespective of their religions, ethnicities or social status: they were demanding for the return of at least 219 girls, abducted by the evil Boko Haram sect from a federal government college in Chibok, Borno.

The Christmas day march was almost interrupted by policemen who tried to block access to certain

Question Of The Day

Guys, 2014 is almost over, and many plans that we had, didn't materialize... It's safe to say that, most plans didn't materialize because of financial constraints and that is why life hasn't been so rosy for some of us .

So, my question is this;
How much will someone need to start a good business, in order to have that good life in the long run? Is it 100k, 200k, 300k?
I would love to hear your thoughts on this, guys. Cheers

The Love Between Tosyn Bucknor and This Her White Boo Ehn! (photos)

OAP Toysn Bucknor and this French guy who works with Lafarge Engineering Constructions in Nigeria can make a hopeless person who lacks true love commit suicide.

I am certain some of their jealous friends on social media have started blocking them. Most recently at the Calabar festival, they became the center of attention. Omo, this love na wantintin o.
