Kim Kardashian Rolls Up Shirt to Show Bare Baby Bump in New Picture


Baby got bump! Kim Kardashian dared to bare her curvier-than-ever figure when she shared a photo of herself standing in front of a mirror with her top rolled up to expose her nearly six-months-pregnant belly.
Wearing skintight black leggings and a thin white T-shirt, the Kourtney & Kim Take Miami star, 32, proudly showed off her adorably round stomach. She captioned the self-taken shot "Baby love."

The move is a bold one for Kardashian, who has been bullied for her weight ever since announcing in December that she is expecting her first child with Kanye West this summer. Bloggers and fans alike have called her "fat" and compared her to Shamu, the killer whale. Sources told Us Weekly that the mom-to-be was taking the criticism hard, but she seems to have recently embraced the changes in her figure.

NSCDC Storm Abia State Baby Factory, Arrest 32 Pregnant Teenagers About To Sell Their Unborn Babies

Last week, April 2, 2013, Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NCSDC) staff in Abia State busted a baby factory in Abia State and arrested 32 pregnant teenagers together with the owner of the home, Mrs Nnenna Mba and two male workers.

At the baby factory, babies are bought from their mothers at the rate of N100,000 for a baby boy, then a baby girl for N80, 000.
They are sold to interested buyers at N450, 000 and N400, 000 respectively.

The girls , whose ages range between 10 and 20 were believed to have run to the home after getting pregnant without the knowledge of their parents or were impregnated at the home by visiting males employed by the proprietor of the home.

THISDAY Publisher, Nduka Obaigbena, Blames Boko-Haram For Unpaid Staff Salaries

Flamboyant publisher of THISDAY, Nduka Obaigbena, has appealed to his workers to be patient over his inability to pay salaries, blaming the delays on last year’s Boko Haram attack on the Abuja premises of the newspaper.

Mr. Obaigbena has not paid the workers since the beginning of this year. But he promised to clear the backlog within a few weeks.

“The process has already started in Abuja and should end within the next 30 days when ALL arrears of salaries and entitlements would have been settled and we resume payments when due,” he said in a “Dear Colleague” letter to the unhappy staff.

His desperation to write the letter might not be unconnected with a plan by the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) to commence a protest in the premises of his paper next week over the unpaid salaries. Many of his employees were complaining about unpaid and late salaries long before the Boko Haram attack.

I can’t be a part-time Eagles player - Joseph Yobo

Skipper Joseph Yobo has said that Coach Stephen Keshi cannot make him a part-time player in the Super Eagles. He opens up a can of worms in this interview.
We learnt that you were not happy that you were not fielded in the last game against Kenya. What really happened?
Before people get it twisted, I said and I repeat that nobody communicated with me that I was not going to play against kenya. Nobody communicated to me at all. This is not about Joseph Yobo. This is about the position of the captain of the national team and there should be respect for that position.
There are so many things that happened that I was not happy with but I chose to keep quiet. But I am keeping all that for my documentary.

Kardashians Sue Ex Stepmom for Taking Personal Property

In case you don't keep up with the Kardashians, here's a tip: Don't mess with them.
Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, and Rob Kardashian are suing their former stepmom Ellen Pearson -- whom Robert Kardashian wed two months before he died in 2003 -- over personal possessions belonging to their father.

"The Fake Marriage Certificate Really Looks Good" - John Dumelo

 Exclusive Revelation: Photo of John Dumelo and his secret wife, Harrinia

Last night, word went out that Ghanaian actor John Dumelo was keeping a very big secret from his fans and everyone else - he was married and there was a marriage certificate to prove it!
The marriage certificate, from a Circuit Court in Arlington, Virgin Island, showed his wife's name as Harrinia A Dembele, who is currently living in the US and is a model, actress and a nurse.

Just as expected, everyone was stunned but John Dumelo was quick to deny the story last night.
He immediately took to Twitter to explain the marriage certificate.
Even the supposed wife Harrinia Alexander Dembele seems to be shocked at the reports.
It turns out the 'fake' marriage certificate is actually from a movie John Dumelo shot with Harrinia Alexander Dembele.

Islamists: Topless Girl Needs Stoning (Photo)

A Tunisian Salafi preacher has called for a 19-year old girl who posted her topless pictures on Facebook to be “quarantined” and stoned to death before she starts “an epidemic.” Salafi preacher Alami Adel, who heads the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, says: “According to God’s law, she deserves 80 to 100 lashes, but what she committed is worth much more than that.
She deserves to be stoned to death and she must be quarantined because what she did is an epidemic.
She is like someone suffering from a serious and contagious illness and she must be secluded and treated.”
The young Amina, who is part of a feminist movement and group called FEMEN can be seen smoking a cigarette topless with Arabic words written across her chest in black that reads in English “My body belongs to me.”

Scientists: Staring At Busty Women For 10 Minutes A Day Is Good For Your Health

Scientists: Staring At Busty Women For 10 Minutes A Day Is Good For Your Health

Staring at busty women can lengthen your life, scientists have proved. A German study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, concludes that staring at women's breasts for a few minutes daily is better for your health than going to the gym.
"Just 10 minutes of looking at the charms of well-endowed females is equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics work-out," said author Dr Karen Weatherby, an expert on ageing.
The research team, led by Dr Weatherby, spent five years monitoring the effects of this unique discovery.
The men who were told to stare at bosoms daily had lower blood pressure and slower resting pulse rates and also decreased their risk of coronary artery disease.
Dr Weatherby explained: "Sexual excitement gets the heart pumping and improves blood circulation.

My Husband Was Eaten By His Friends

A Russian woman has spoken of her grief after finding out her husband was eaten by his friends. The foursome was on a fishing trip when they got lost in a remote part of the Sakha Republic. The fishermen got lost after their boat was swept into a river during a flood.
In a lie detector test, 37-year-old Alexander Abdullaev admitted eating Andrei Kurochin, 44, but denied murdering him. He claimed to police that he ate his friend "but not because I was hungry. I had another reason." He didn't say what the reason was.
Another friend Alexei Gorulenko, 35, has not spoken to investigators. The fourth fisherman Viktor Komarov, 47, remains missing, presumed dead.
Olga Kurochkina has spoken out after a DNA test proved that a few fragments of bone which were found along with the other men were her husband's.
She said: "Now I can be sure my husband Andrei is dead and his body was found there in the taiga."
"Can you imagine what I have left? One foot with toes, one finger, and the back of his skull with some hair.

Korea Crisis: North Korea asks Russia to consider evacuating embassy

North Korea asked Russia on Friday to consider evacuating staff from its embassy in Pyongyang because of increasing tension on the Korean peninsula, a spokesman for the embassy said by phone from Pyongyang.
Denis Samsonov said Russia was examining the request but was not planning an evacuation at this stage, and there were no outward signs of increased tension in the North Korean capital itself.
He said other foreign embassies had received similar requests.
A North Korean Foreign Ministry representative "proposed that the Russian side consider the issue of the evacuation of employees in connection with the increasingly tense situation", Samsonov said.
North Korea has said nuclear conflict could break out at any time on the Korean peninsula, in a month-long war of words that has prompted the United States to move military assets into the region.
According to South Korean media, North Korea has placed two of its intermediate-range missiles on mobile

Nigeria's Military Chiefs Outraged Over Jonathan’s Plan to Grant Boko Haram Amnesty

A new plan by President Goodluck Jonathan to grant amnesty to members of the violent Boko Haram sect has upset Nigeria’s military chiefs.
Sources at the Presidential Villa, where the military brass met with the President for several hours today, said they tried in vain to convince Mr. Jonathan not to fall into the trap that has been set for him by prominent northern leaders on the issue.
They were said to have told him the security implications of the action and that it could also be interpreted to mean that the President is not a man of his word. Mr. Jonathan has flip-flopped on federal policy against Boko Haram since he took office in 2010.
The military bosses reminded him of his words when he visited Borno State a few weeks ago when he said that there was no way he would grant amnesty to ghosts, stressing that nothing has changed. Mr. Jonathan once said there were members of Boko Haram in his government, but it is not clear if they are still ghosts or

PHOTOS: Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian Wear the Same Beige Pregnancy Maxi-Dress: Who Wore It Better?

Maternity hand-me-downs? Kim Kardashian's eye-catching, billowy beige maxi-dress isn't exactly one-of-a-kind -- as it turns out, then-pregnant sister Kourtney Kardashian wore the same Rachel Pally dress last June.
Kim, 32, stepped out in the off-shoulder outfit during a frozen yogurt run in Sherman Oaks, Calif. on Wednesday, April 3, showing off her ample cleavage as she enjoyed an afternoon snack with pals.

Less than a year ago, however, older sister Kourtney, 33, was also turning heads in the same dress during filming for the sisters' show Kourtney & Kim Take Miami in June 2012.
