For real? Google Wants To Bring Free Wifi To The World

Google is rolling out free wifi in New York as part of a trial the company hopes will eventually span across the whole of the world.
The internet giant has even gone as far as to set up a company specifically dedicated to the task, called Sidewalk Labs.
How will they do this you ask – through turning 10,000 of the big apple’s old phone booths into ad-supported ‘Wi-Fi pylons’.

The Senate on Thursday officially nominated Mr. Ndume, from Borno State, as Majority Leader and Bala Ibn Na’alla as deputy leader. Mr. Na’alla, a former House of Representatives member, is from Kebbi state.
The Senate also nominated Francis Alimikhena, from Edo State, as Deputy Chief Whip.

Question Of The day: When's the Right Time For A Father to stop bathing his daughter?

I was listening to the radio yesterday and this topic was discussed. A lot of fathers called into say its their daughter and they'll stop whenever they want. Some mother's claimed that a well trained child would know how to handle that by a particular age while others mothers said the father won't even know how to bath the child so they won't allow it.

Here's my question or questions;
1) At what age should a father stop bathing his daughter and WHY?
2) Being a single dad isn't common in Nigeria but What happens to single fathers?

MENS WORLD !!! Female Blog Reader in Tears Over Parent's Will

Madam Laila, I am a blog reader and I comment as ***** tho not often. I was the lady who send you an email around late February concerning my daddy's burial. The man who was shot by hired killers at Ziks roundabout Onitsha on February 2nd 2015. I became an orphan that day (Mummy died 12 years ago) but it is well cos my redeemer lives. . I didnt get a reply from you and I felt maybe you have been too busy so I dont hold this against you. I hope you help me out this time.

I have reasons to believe that my brothers has tampered with my late daddy's will. Yesterday was the day slated for the reading of the will. Laila, nothing was left for me. Not even a pin. Even our family house where we live in now belongs to my elder brother now while the other house at oguta road was shared between my 2 younger brothers. Even down to the cars. I got no pin. The Sab miller shares, The 4 shops at main market, the pure water factory which i manage. everything was on my 3 brothers despite the fact that they contributed very little or nothing to the burial expenses. I have cried my self silly. I dont understand how my own blood brothers will conspire to leave me empty handed like this.

Can You Imagine this Wickedness?

This guy shared his story on Instagram. Hilarious!
