Ray J drops x-rated Kim Kardashian diss track

Ray-J-Kim-Kardashian-Kanye-West-main
Ray J hasn't held back in a brand new, x-rated diss track aimed at his ex Kim Kardashian.

The singer has teamed up with Chris Brown for Famous - a dig at Kanye West's song of the same name - and delivered a scathing attack on his former flame and her man, who was hospitalised for exhaustion this week.

In a hard-hitting verse, he sings: "She f***ed me for fame, look in her eyes. She was the first one to sign on the line. She was the real one to plan it all out.

"Look at the family, they walk around proud. All because she had my d**k in her mouth."

Last month, Ray J - whose likeness was used as a nude wax figure in Kanye's Famous video - was name-dropped in the rapper's track, and he wanted to have his say.

JAN-5-Chantelle-Connelly-has-boyfriends-name-tattooed-on-her-neck

She’s recently quit Geordie Shore in Kavos and flew back to Newcastle, branding her housemates 'two-faced snakes'.

But Chantelle Connelly clearly has no intention of keeping on the down-low now she’s left the house, lashing out at former co-star Chloe Ferry on Twitter on Wednesday morning.

When Chloe tweeted on Tuesday night, looking ahead to that evening’s show, she managed to invoke the wrath of the former stripper.

Chloe wrote: “Tonight's the night... A familiar face is back & another one's leaving! HOWAY! Tune into ALL NEW #GeordieShore tonight at 10pm on @MTVUK”.More

Be thou an example of the believers in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. - 1 Timothy 4:12

One thing the world needs to see is good examples. They need to see believers walk in love and purity and faith in their homes, in their schools and in their businesses.

The Apostle Paul exhorts us in Romans 12:17 to live above reproach in the sight of all men. Other scriptures teach us to avoid all appearance of evil. So, when you go after God, don't walk out on the edge, trying to see how much you can get by with. Go all out in God's direction. Conduct yourself in a way that will put to rest any question about whether or not you're a Christian. Let the people around you see your love and faith and purity in every situation.

Your example will go a lot further than your words. When our son, John, was a little boy, we were spending time with my grandparents. John was sleeping with my granddaddy and he woke him up in the night and said, "Pop, I have an earache. Would you pray for it?" Well, my grandparents were raised in a church that didn't believe in healing. I don't know what Pop did, but it didn't work. So, John just got up and said, "I'm going to go get in bed with my mother. When she prays, it stops hurting." About 18 years later, Pop told me the story.

You see, I had set an example of faith and love and John remembered it. While your children are growing up, they might forget some of the sermons you've preached or act like they're not interested in the things of God. But they'll never forget your example.

Even at the place where you work or go to school or just in your neighborhood, people might reject or argue with the words you say. But they'll never refute or forget your acts of love.

Don't let petty sins and spiritual compromises cast a shadow over your example. Live above reproach and let the light of Jesus shine brightly through you.

O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever. — Psalm 118:1

This year as we observe our season of thanksgiving, let us be grateful not only in word but also in deed. Let our gratitude find expression in a resolve to live a life more unselfish and more consecrated to Jesus Christ. When we sit around our tables laden with sumptuous delicacies, let us not forget that half the world will go to bed hungry. As we enjoy the comforts of our cozy homes, let us not forget that great numbers in other parts of the world have no homes to go to.

When we step into our sleek automobiles, let us not forget that most of the people in the world cannot afford even a bicycle. In the Lord’s Prayer as recorded in the sixth chapter of Matthew, we read, “Give us this day our daily bread.” Scripture teaches that the good things of this life are the gifts of God, and that He is the donor of all our blessings. Thanksgiving? Yes. Let us get on our knees humbly and thank God for the blessings He has given us, both material and spiritual. They have come from His hands.

Prayer for the day: You bring me such abundance, almighty God. As I think of Thanksgiving Day, may my heart be completely consecrated to Your Son, Jesus Christ, so that through Him my life will show my gratitude to You.

Written by Billy Graham, Founder of Billy Graham Evangelistic Association(BGEA). BGEA exists to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ by every effective means and to equip the church and others to do the same.

Facebook users receive $15 checks after it used members' names and faces in adverts without their permission (Photos)

A group of Facebook users have received payouts from the social media giant, Facebook, for a class action lawsuit between Fraley vs Facebook on an account of the company using images belonging to people in ‘Sponsored Story ads’ without getting their permission first.
According to MailOnline, five plaintiffs claimed that the site used their image for 'Sponsored Story ads', which are created when members 'like' company pages or websites.
The suit also claimed that consent was not received by the parents of people under the age of 18, whose images were used by the giant company, for ads.

Facebook was then ordered to pay $20 million to all those who joined the suit as at May 2, 2013, when the case was been tried in court as part of settlement from the case which was filed in April 2011.

However, Facebook is said to have broken a Californian law which states that companies are forbidden from using the likeness of people in ads, without their consent. This was after in different occasion, Facebook was quoted to have vowed that its users would have more control over how their images would be used in ads, a promise which was violated when it used people’s ads without their permission.

Meanwhile, it took two years of deliberation on the lawsuit before a U.S. federal judge approved the $20 million settlement in August 2013. The case spent years in appeal court, which is why the payout took so long to reach customers. However, finally this year, all the appeals were settled, allowing payments to be released to the all plaintiffs involved.

On Monday, dozens of people posted on social media saying that they have all got $15 checks.

See some of the reactions to the payment below:

Nigerian Ex-president Obasanjo attacks President Buhari

Tags
Obasanjo-visits-Buhari
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Wednesday came hard on President Muhammadu Buhari, urging him to fix the country’s economy as he promised during electioneering rather than expressing frustration at the gloomy economic situation.

Obasanjo spoke during a lecture he delivered at the First Akintola Williams Annual Lecture in Lagos titled, “Nigeria yesterday, today and tomorrow: Governance and accountability.’’

He said that it would have been needless for Nigerians to cry for a change of government if things were rosy in the country before Buhari took over.

The ex-President also faulted the proposed borrowing of US$30bn by the Buhari administration, arguing that such would amount to taking the soft option capable of hurting the country in future.

Besides, he cautioned Buhari against castigating his administration alongside previous ones, describing such as uncharitable, fussy and uninstructive.

According to Obasanjo, if the current administration does not fix the economy to relieve the pain and anguish of many Nigerians, the gains recorded in fighting insurgency and corruption will pale into insignificance.

Obasanjo stated, “It is easier to win an election than to right the wrongs of a badly fouled situation. When you are outside, what you see and know are nothing compared with the reality. And yet once you are on seat, you have to clear the mess and put the nation on the path of rectitude, development and progress leaving no group or section out of your plan, programme and policy and efforts. The longer it takes, the more intractable the problem may become.

“I understand President Buhari’s frustration on the state of the economy inherited by him. It was the same reason and situation that brought about cry for change, otherwise there would be no need for change if it was all nice and rosy.

“Now that we have had change because the actors and the situation needed to be changed, let us move forward to have progress through a comprehensive economic policy and programme that is intellectually, strategically and philosophically based.’’

He also warned that the anger of the citizenry particularly the youth might be spurred if the current administration did not get it right in good governance and accountability.

Obasanjo also warned the Federal Government against the planned $30bn foreign it intended to take.

He said, “We immediately need loans to stabilise our foreign reserve and embark on some infrastructure development but surely not $30bn over a period of less than three years. That was about the magnitude of the cumulative debt of Nigeria which we worked and wiped out 10 years ago.

“Before that debt relief, we were spending almost $3bn to service our debt annually and the quantum of the debt was not going down. Rather, if we defaulted, we paid penalty which was added on. Economy neither obeys orders nor does it work according to wishes. It must be worked upon with all factors considered and most stakeholders involved.

“The investors, domestic and foreign, are no fools and they know what is going on with the management of the economy including the foreign exchange and they are not amused. The Central Bank must be restored to its independence and integrity. We must be careful and watchful of the danger of short-termism. Short-term may be the enemy of medium and long-term.’’

Obasanjo took a swipe at the National Assembly, describing it as a den of corruption by a gang of unarmed robbers and stinking worse than the judiciary.

He said, “Once you are a member, you are co-opted and your mouth is stuffed with rottenness and corruption that you cannot opt out as you go home with not less than N15m a month for a senator and N10m a month for a member of the House of Representatives. The National Assembly is a den of corruption by a gang of unarmed robbers.’’

He said, “If the judiciary is being cleaned, what of the National Assembly which stinks much worse than the judiciary? Budget padding must not go unpunished. It is a reality, which is a regular and systemic practice. Nobody should pull wool over the eyes of Nigerians. Ganging up to intimidate and threaten the life of a whistle-blower is deplorable and undemocratic.’’

He also accused the National Assembly of using ‘so-called constituency projects’ as a conduit for corruption.

“These constituency projects are spread over the budget for members of the National Assembly for which they are the initiators and the contractors directly or by proxy and money would be fully drawn with the project only partially executed or not executed at all. The National Assembly cabal of today is worse than any cabal that anybody may find anywhere in our national governance system at any time,” he said.

According to him, members of the National Assembly pay themselves allowances for staff and offices they do not have or maintain.

Stating that like the judiciary, the National Assembly cannot clean itself, he lamented how the re-current budget of the lawmakers with the so-called constituency projects had ballooned since the inception of the current democratic dispensation.

Obasanjo stated, “Our lawmakers are lawbreakers. They are the accused, the prosecutor, the defenders and the judge in their own case. Most of them conduct themselves and believe that they are not answerable to anybody. They are blatant in their misbehaviour, cavalier in their misconduct and arrogant in the misuse of parliamentary immunity as a shield against reprisals for their irresponsible acts of malfeasance and/or outright banditry.’’

The ex-President urged Buhari to ride on the popularity of current happenings in the judiciary to establish a highly technical team of incorruptible investigators to investigate the so-called constituency projects of the past and the present and bring culprits to book.

He faulted a situation where a person supposed to be screened by the National Assembly for public appointment would be told to give a bow without any screening because he or she was an ex-lawmaker.

He added that such an action amounted to dereliction of duty on the part of the lawmakers.

He also urged the President to return the procurement system in the military to what it used to be.

Obasanjo further said three weeks after the process of saving the judiciary began, he learnt that there might be not less than two score of judicial officers having questions to answer.

The ex-President added that when justice was only for sale and could only be purchased by the highest bidder, impunity and anarchy would be the order of the day and none would be safe.

Obasanjo stated, ‘‘There is virtually no corrupt judge without being aided by a member of the bar. The Nigerian Bar Association has the responsibility to clean up its own house and help with the cleaning of the judiciary. It is heartening though that some members of the NBA have recently called for judicial reform. Such reform must be deep, comprehensive and entail constitutional amendments as appointment and disciplines of judges are concerned. It must also be said that the good eggs within the judiciary must be proud of themselves and we must not only be proud of them but also protect them and their integrity.’’

Obasanjo also commended “all the foot soldiers in the war against corruption – the different panels of enquiries, the ICPC but particularly the EFCC which is now showing that it is a bull dog that can bite.”

He  appealed  to the Judiciary not to frustrate the efforts of the anti-graft agencies “through flimsy technicality and interminable adjournments.’’

In another vein, he said though Akintola Williams was never in government, his contributions surpassed those of many others who passed through portal of government without much positive achievement or contribution to show for it.

ICC to investigate Libya’s migrant trafficking to Europe

                               ICC to investigate Libya’s migrant trafficking to Europe

Fatou Bensouda, the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has revealed that a proper investigation will be carried out on the trafficking of migrants from Libya to Europe by sea.
The numbers of migrants to have arrived in Italy by sea this year has reportedly reached 170, 000. With a large number of people still missing at the sea.

In an interview with Agence France Presse, which held at the ICC’s new permanent home, on the outskirts of The Hague on Tuesday, the Chief prosecutor said:

"My office is planning to make Libya a priority in investigations in the coming year. One of the areas I intend to look into is the issue of the migrants, and the fact that we see hundreds of thousands of migrants being trafficked across from Libya, coming into Europe When asked if the trafficking could be considered ‘a crime against humanity,’ she replied: ‘It could be, depending on what evidence we find. We are still continuing with our investigations in Libya. We are receiving a lot of information with regards to the crimes that are being committed.’

Jimoh Ibrahim: I am PDP candidate, nobody can stop me

Jimoh Ibraham
In apparent defiance of an Appeal Court ruling that set aside the Justice Abang judgement that ordered INEC to publish Jimoh Ibrahim’s name as the Peoples Democratic Party’s governorship candidate for the November 26 election in Ondo State, Mr. Jimoh Ibrahim has vowed to continue with his campaign.

The three-man panel of the appeal court led by Justice Ibrahim Saulawa, in a unanimous judgment delivered on Wednesday held that Justice Abang acted without jurisdiction when he made orders against those that were not parties ‎before him.

The appeal court also nullified the primary said to have been conducted by the Biyi Poroye-led state executive of the Ali Modu Sheriff faction of the party which produced Ibrahim as the governorship candidate of the party in the state.

According to a report by The Interview, the candidate of the Modu Sheriff faction of the PDP, Ibrahim, dismissed the ruling, saying “the judgment is very vague; it is nebulous and ambiguous.”
He added, “The court did not make a consequential order asking INEC to remove my name; so nobody can remove my name from the ballot. The judgment is very vague; it is nebulous and ambiguous. INEC cannot dare to remove my name.

“INEC will pay billions of naira in damages if it dares to do that. What will it be acting on? There is no consequential order. The order is empty; it’s an empty voyage of discovery!
“I’m continuing my campaign. Nobody can stop me.
“Yes. I’ll invite you to the victory party on Sunday, after the election.”

Tokyo sees first November snow in 54 years

                               A man stands near the gate in the snow at Kanda Myojin shrine in Tokyo, Thursday, Nov. 24, 2016. Tokyo residents have woken up to the first November snowfall in more than 50 years.
Tokyo experienced its first November snowfall in 54 years on Thursday.

Residents of the Japanese capital were taken by surprise, as the temperatures around this time of the year usually range from 10C to 17C.

The snow was caused by an unusual cold front over the city, but above-freezing temperatures kept the snow from sticking.

The unexpected weather meant longer commuting trips because of public transport delays.

The Japan Meteorological Agency also warned of possible icy roads, snow on electric wires and trees, and the collapse of plastic greenhouses, according to the Japan Times. Read More Here

Austrian far-right hopeful Hofer may back EU vote

Tags
                              Election posters in Vienna on 22 Nov
Austria's far-right presidential candidate Norbert Hofer has said he would push for a referendum on EU membership, if the EU became more centralised after Brexit.

He told the BBC that while the 28-country bloc was important for Austria, he wanted a "better European Union".

Austria's presidential vote re-run is on 4 December and the polls indicate the result is too close to call.

If Mr Hofer wins, he will become the EU's first far-right head of state.

His independent rival, Alexander Van der Bellen, won the election in May but the vote was overturned.

The former Green party leader had beaten Mr Hofer by a margin of only 30,863 votes and Austria's high court backed a complaint that election rules on postal voting had been broken.

Mr Hofer's Freedom Party had argued that postal ballots were illegally and improperly handled in 94 out of 117 districts.

Although the role is largely ceremonial, the Austrian president does have the power to dissolve the lower house of parliament, the National Council, and trigger elections.

The Freedom PA told the BBC that no-one should be scared of him as a leader. However, while Muslims living in Austria were part of the country, "Islam is not part of our values", he said.

The far-right leader has insisted that a vote for him would not be a vote for Austria pulling out of the EU, or "Oexit".

However, he told the BBC there were two issues that might change his mind.

One was any future decision to admit Turkey into the EU. Although Turkey is in accession talks, there seems little likelihood of it joining the EU any time soon.

And then there was the EU's response to the UK leaving the bloc.

"If the answer to Brexit would be to make a centralised European Union, where the national parliaments are disempowered and where the union is governed like a state. In this case, we would have to hold a referendum in Austria, because it would lead to a constitutional change," he said.

Donald Trump calls for unity in Thanksgiving holiday address

Tags
                                  Donald Trump and Betsy DeVos

US President-elect Donald Trump has called for national unity in an address to mark the Thanksgiving holiday.

In the wake of what he called a "long and bruising" election campaign he said emotions in the country were raw.

The time had come, he said, "to begin to heal our divisions" but added that "tensions just don't heal overnight".

Earlier he announced the appointment of two women to his cabinet, both of whom had been fiercely critical of him during the presidential campaign.

In his Thanksgiving address, Mr Trump acknowledged the bitterness still remaining after the bruising election campaign: "It doesn't go quickly, unfortunately, but we have before us the chance now to make history together to bring real change to Washington, real safety to our cities, and real prosperity to our communities, including our inner cities."

On Wednesday, Mr Trump announced that South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley was his pick for US ambassador to the United Nations, while Betsy DeVos has been chosen to be secretary of education.

Both are former critics of Mr Trump, with Mrs Haley once saying she was "not a fan", and Mrs DeVos branding the Manhattan tycoon an "interloper".

The appointments will need to be approved by the Republican-controlled Senate.

Mr Trump called Mrs Haley "a proven dealmaker, and we look to be making plenty of deals".

"She will be a great leader representing us on the world stage," he added.

Mrs Haley said she was "moved" to accept the assignment and would stay on as South Carolina governor, pending her congressional confirmation.

During the Republican primaries, she supported Florida Senator Marco Rubio and then Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

Mrs Haley also strongly attacked Mr Trump's proposal to ban Muslim immigrants, describing it as "un-American".
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton's lead over Mr Trump in the popular count of the US presidential election has increased to two million votes.
He won the election by winning a majority of the electoral college votes, but with ballots still being counted, two weeks after election day , the Cook Political Report has Mr Trump's tally at 62.2m and Mrs Clinton's at 64.2m.
It is the fifth time the winner of the popular vote has lost the election.
In 2000, Democrat Al Gore's final lead over George W Bush, who won the election after a prolonged legal challenge, was nearly 544,000.
The Supreme Court ultimately decided that election by awarding Mr Bush a win in the contested state of Florida.
This year, Mrs Clinton scored large tallies in states like California but Mr Trump won most of the so-called swing states, which ultimately decide the outcome of elections.
The electoral college system favours candidates who win by a small margin in lots of states over ones that win by a landslide in just a few.
A group of academics, lawyers and data experts is also trying to persuade the Clinton team to join their effort to investigate the results in three states to check there was no foreign computer hacking that manipulated the outcome.
They are curious why Ms Clinton performed worse in counties that relied on electronic voting machines compared to paper ballots and optical scanners.
But her campaign has not indicated any interest in joining a fight for a recount.
The Green party candidate, Jill Stein, is raising funds to request a recount in the same states - Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, all won by Mr Trump.
