UPDATE 1-Total sells $2.5 bln Nigeria oil field stake to Sinopec

Total says Sinopec to pay $2.5 bln in cash
* Deal to help French group finance exploration

Nov 19 (Reuters) - Total is selling a 20 percent stake in a Nigerian offshore oil field to China's Sinopec in a $2.5 billion deal which will help the French oil group fund its ambitious exploration plans.

Total said on Monday it had signed a deal to sell the stake in the OML 138 block, which currently produces 130,000 barrels per day of oil equivalent and contains the Usan field, which started production in February.

The French group said in September it planned to sell assets worth between $15 billion and $20 billion in the period up to 2014 as part of a bolder approach to managing its business, which has seen it buy and sell assets more frequently.

Nicki Minaj Signs Nigerian To Her New Record Label

Nicki Minaj has signed London based Nigerian artist Parker Ighile to her new record label. The Super Bass singer says she is however yet to come up with a name for it as she is looking for one that will suit male artists as well.
Its now becoming common place for American rappers to sign African artists to their record label. Kanye West opened the gates by signing D banj and Don Jazzy to Good Music music, followed by Akon’s Konvict Music who signed Nigeria’s P Square and Kenya’s 14 year old Wilson. Akon who was recently in Kenya for a concert is yet to make public names of artists he signed during his visit.
Nicki has been signed to Young Money, lil Wayne’s record label. It has been a precedent for American rappers to establish their own record labels when they hit the pinnacle of their careers. Lil Wayne was himself signed to Birdman’s CMB Cash Money Brothers before opening his own. This could however be a make or break decision for Nicki especially if she leaves her current record label as the stable is often very instrumental to an artist’s success and such can be said of Young Money and Nicki Minaj.

Electricity: TCN management contract may collapse

PHCN power station
The contract between the Federal Government and a Canadian firm, Manitoba, for the management of the Transmission Company of Nigeria may go awry following the stripping of Manitoba of powers to control human resource and finance at the company.
Investigation by our correspondent showed that the Canadian firm, which in July sealed a N3.72bn deal to manage TCN, one of the successor companies carved out of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria, had lost its powers to manage the organisation at the insistence of PHCN workers.
With this development, the PHCN workers are to control both the human and financial resources at the company, while Manitoba employees seconded to Nigeria will be responsible for the technical expansion of the nation’s power grid.
While 17 other PHCN successor companies were slated for either privatisation or concession in the ongoing power sector reform programme of President Goodluck Jonathan, the Federal Government retained 100 per cent ownership in TCN.

We were down a sandy beach,
All night talking to your mouth’s words.
Tell me where you would like to be.
Tonight don’t be afraid to dream.
Lean on the fire for a while.

Cause in the morning it’ll all just be ashes on the ground
Instead it be them, let it be me.
Since I will die inevitably,
Then let it be, that it be said
When I am dead: some other was free, some other was fed
Some other, not me, was able to see
That long as we live inside a country where no one is safe,
No one is safe.
We only evade, try to escape
The imminent doom
But closer the date looms.
It comes for all.
If we must go, then at least,
When we fall…
When we’re all ashes…
If I am slain, let them forever remember the name
Some other should gain.
When we’re all ashes…
Because of my pain. Because of my tears because of my scars
Some other should gain.
When we’re all ashes…
The reason I’m gone. Let it be told, let it be known, and turned into song
When we’re all ashes…
If I die alone. Let it be more than dying alone, the reason I’m gone.
The reason I’m gone.
Instead it be sleep.
Let it be hate, let it degrade.
Let it be deep.
Some other should weep
Some other should keep
The memory of
The way that I died
Maybe a change, some other can try
At least we can lie. At least we can hope
At least we can say
tomorrow is better, it wont be today
Some other can pray
Some other can fight
The wrong done to me some other can right.
Then maybe my death can save some other life
For then I would gladly give another life
When we’re all ashes…
Let it be worth
Let it be so some other can live. Let it be birth.
When we’re all ashes…
As I am hurt
As I pass, let it be last, let it be first
When we’re all ashes…
Don’t let them forget
The only regret is that we relent. We all should repent..
When we’re all ashes…
If I die alone,
Let it be more than dying alone. The reason I’m gone
The reason I’m gone
Feels like I stood there watching,
the pain the brutal torture
And added my silence to the violent screams
Of: Burn and torch em.
How do you earn misfortune?
Or does it come unbidden?
If life’s a painted portrait,
Who puts dark colors in them?
If there’s a God in heaven,
Surely he’s weeping now.
As all the blood is shedding
As all His people drown.
God help us all.
Rest in peace Chidi.
Rest in peace Lloyd
Rest in Peace Tekena
Rest in Peace Ugonna
Rest in peace to the Students murdered in Adamawa state.
Rest in peace to those two young girls.

True story: I cannot sit here next to this black man

A 50- something year old white woman arrived at her seat on a crowded flight and immediately didn't want the seat. The seat was next to a black man. Disgusted, the woman immediately summoned the flight attendant and demanded a new seat. The
woman said "I cannot sit here next to this black man." The fight attendant said "Let me see if I can find another seat." After checking, the flight attendant returned and stated "Ma'am, there are no more seats in economy, but I will check with the captain and see if there is something in first class." About 10 minutes went by and the flight attendant returned and stated "The captain has confirmed that there are no more seats in economy, but there is one in first class. It is our company policy to never move a person from economy to first class, but being that it would be some sort of scandal to force a person to sit next to an UNPLEASANT person, the captain agreed to make the switch to first class." Before the woman could say anything, the attendant gestured to the black man and said, "Therefore sir, if you would so kindly retrieve your personal items, we would like to move you to the comfort of first class as the captain doesn't want you to sit next to an unpleasant person." Passengers in the seats nearby began to applause while some gave a standing ovation.

Dear Aunty B,

This is the most difficult time of my life and there is really no one I can share this issue with. I cannot talk to my friends, my family and especially not my husband. I have confidentially spoken to my Pastor and his wife and as I narrate my story, I will share the advice they gave me.

My husband and I have been married for over a year and all has been blissful so far – until now. I know my husband and he knows me too, what I am trying to say is, we did not have an arranged marriage or a whirlwind romance. We met, developed our friendship, love and bond then got married. My husband is an attentive, caring and sexy guy.

How to Build Intimacy in Your Relationship

Relationship intimacy
Illustration: Brett Ryder
What is intimacy to you?" Recently, I asked this of a man I've been seeing. He replied, "Doing things together." I knew what he meant.

Most of us have a primal craving to be truly known by someone before we die, to build a deeply committed relationship based on honesty, trust, self-disclosure, respect, appreciation, interdependence, and togetherness. But the sexes often define intimacy differently. When women want to draw closer, we face each other, lock eyes in what has been called the "anchoring gaze," and proceed to reveal our hopes, our worries, our lives. To women, intimacy is talking face-to-face—a behavior that probably evolved millions of years ago when ancestral females spent their days holding their infants up in front of them, soothing them with words.

25 relationship tips

What's the key to successful relationships? Here, Susan Quilliam reveals the simple things you need to know to deepen your partnership and make your relationship work

1. Without quality time, your relationship will not survive. Carve out at least half an hour a night, and at least one day a month when you the two of you spend time exclusively together.

2. You will both need security, comfort. A good relationship is built on compromise and a great deal of give and take on both sides.

3. Keep your dependence and independence in balance. Tell and show your partner how much you need him, but don't cling, as that can make your partner feel trapped.

4. Encourage him to listen to you, by showing appreciation when he does. By the same token, show interest when he talks to you. Be aware that most men aren't mentally programmed for conversation in the way women are. They need more silence and internal time.

Kissing device lets you send a long-distance smooch

If you're missing your partner and fancy a smooch, it's time to pucker up. Well, as long as you don't mind kissing an eyeless Mr Potato Head, that is.
A new messaging device, dubbed Kissenger, lets users send kisses wirelessly to one another. Unveiled at the Designing Interactive Systems conference in Newcastle, UK, in June, Kissenger comprises a pair of pressure-sensitive soft plastic lips which protrude through a smooth plastic casing the size of a large Easter egg.
The lips contain pressure sensors and actuators. When you kiss them, the shape changes you create are transmitted in real time over the net to a receiving Kissenger. There, the actuators reproduce the mirror image of the pressure patterns you created– magically transmitting your smacker to your partner.

The bras were among 2,700 textile fragments found during archaeological investigations of the castle by a team from the University of Innsbruck, which began in 2008.

FIFA must pay for African's goal-line technology -Nyantakyi (Ghana FA Boss)

Ghana FA chief Kwesi Nyantakyi says FIFA must consider paying for African countries to implement goal-line technology.
Nyantakyi, who is also a member of the CAF Executive Committee, says most countries on the continent cannot afford the system that detects whether a goal has been scored.
After a long list of controversies - including Sulley Muntari's 'goal' against Juventus in the Serie A last season - FIFA has approved the technology to avoid future arguments over goals scored.
The International FA Board (IFAB) gave the go-ahead to both the Hawk-Eye and the GoalRef systems at a meeting in Zurich few weeks ago.

Written by Michael Skolnik
Bullets. Bullets. More Bullets. And even more bullets. One shot. Two shot. Three shot. More shot. Screams of agony. Cries of babies. Yells of children. the dark night.
Out of breathe. We grab those around us.  We run to red lights of exit signs amid the darkness. We lay prone on the floor.  We pretend to be dead hoping someday we will breathe again. We jump on top of those we love hoping that if one more bullet comes our way, it hits us and not them. hoping. Truly hope that the bullet hits me. a strange thought. A thought that we never thought we would have thought.

FG purchases 200 cars for African first ladies at N13.5m

The ongoing African First Ladies Summit may had cost Nigeria government the host nation billions of naira as the Federal Government began delivery of 200 exotics cars ordered for use by guests.
First Lady Patience Jonathan is the convener of the event, with the theme “The African Woman: A Voice for Peace,” which is expected to be attended by spouses of African leaders.
Accordin to sources, the cars comprise 80 units of BMW X3 and X5 series with a market value of N13.5 million each, while the remaining 120 are exotic models of Honda, Jaguar and others.
“Daily Post” gathered that the vehicles were supplied by Coscharis Motors, and 180 units have already been delivered to the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Saturday.
The cars are for use during the 7th African First Ladies for Peace Mission (AFLPM) summit scheduled for 24 to 27 July in Abuja. Already, African first ladies have begun arriving in the country since weekend for the four-day event.
There was conflicting information by last night on whether the cars were bought outright or hired, and no government official was ready to speak with our correspondents on the record for this story.
When contacted, the spokesman for Coscharis Motors, Mr. Ifeanyi Nihe, by telephone on Monday, he said the company had supplied vehicles to the Federal Government but refused to state the number and cost.
“I am not in the position to give out the real value of the transaction,” he said.
When asked which government agency was handling the transaction, Nihe said, “Our company is still talking with some officials of the government. I don’t know whether it is the First Lady’s office or not.”
Nihe also refused to confirm whether the cars were sold or leased out to the government for the event.
Coscharis Motors is the same company that supplied over 3,000 units of BMW series used during the 8th All African Games also known as COJA in 2003.
A source said the transaction for the 200 cars was processed by the office of the Minister of State for Finance.

Man uses N50 bread as bait to behead neighbour’s 7-year-old son for rituals

A man arrested by the officials of the Department of State Services (DSS), Joan Yakubu has confessed that he used N50 bread to lure the seven year-old son of his neighbour whom he beheaded.
Yakubu said this after he was arrested by the DSS officials attached to the FCT command at AYA Asokoro alongside his accomplice Ishaya Dukulung, 30.
He said his friend asked him to get a fresh human head to be sold to a client in Abuja who promised him huge amount of money.
According to him “I cut off the head of Danjuma after I persuaded him by asking if he would like to eat bread and he answered yes! So I bought bread for N50 and gave him and while he was eating, I asked him to go with me to a nearby river for a swim which did.
“When we got to the river, I entered the river while he stayed away. I told him to join me while I pretended to be washing my feet. I forced the boy to drown before I cut off the head and left the main body in the river.”
Yakubu said he later concealed the head in a bag and took it to Dakulung before heading to Abuja to meet the buyer.
The Assistant Director Operations, Ibrahim Halilu said the suspects were “arrested at the AYA Junction on July 22 at about 01:30 with fresh human head of boy of about seven years old who was later identified as Samu Danjuma from Anguwan Galadima in Nasarawa Local Government, Nasarawa state. They were arrested while they were looking for a buyer after a tip-off.”

"Trust me, Eddie is very much alive and well…and definitely not in Switzerland snowboarding.”
Ironically, this is not the first time Eddie Murphy has been rumored dead. The same website published a similar story in February this year saying the actor met his demise in another snow boarding accident.
Murphy joins the list of celebrities who have experienced death hoaxes such as Charlie Sheen, Adam Sandler, Will Smith,  Paris Hilton and Tiger Woods.

248 human fetuses found in Russian forest

Villagers in Russia's south Urals have stumbled upon a gruesome discovery — four barrels containing 248 human fetuses left in a forest.
Police in the Sverdlovsk region said Tuesday the fetuses, preserved in formaldehyde, were kept in barrels with tags containing surnames and numbers.
Police suspects that one of the four local hospitals is responsible for dumping the barrels.
The fetuses were found a few miles away from a highway linking the region's capital, Yekaterinburg, with another big city, Nizhny Tagil.

Wizkid – Baddest Boy ft Skales

Wizkid – Baddest Boy ft Skales

Internet goons have sharply put up Wizkid’s new single “Baddest Boy” featuring Skales online without EME approval. You can tell it’s the unofficial cut, but hey… no complaints. lol. We barely heard “Sisi Nene” a couple of days ago. At this rate, “London Girl” might just hit the net in no time. *fingers crossed*

Jay-Z Hits the Club—Without Beyoncé—for First Time Since Blue Ivy's Birth

Diapers to Dom? No prob for Jay-Z!

The rapper made his first post-Blue Ivy appearance tonight at the grand reopening of his 40/40 club in New York City.

While Jay passed on the press line, we did get a chance to tell him congratulations on his and Beyoncé's latest and greatest coproduction.

"Thank you," he answered with that new dad grin.

Beyoncé didn't make it out (we'll have to wait to see her undoubtedly amazing post-baby bod!) and presumably stayed home with baby Blue.

But does she need to worry about her hubby's behavior in the club when she's not there?

MORE: So True? So False? Is Baby Blue Ivy's Birth Inspiring Jay-Z to Stop Using the Word "Bitch"?!

Not one bit! While Jay was definitely in good company (Ashanti, Spike Lee, Questlove, Warren Buffett, members of the New York Yankees and more stars came out for 40/40's big night), he mostly enjoyed the company of male friends in private areas of the crowded club.

At one point, a beaming Jay showed a pal some pictures on his phone. He grinned ear to ear as he scrolled through the pics.

Our guess is that this proud papa was thinking of Blue Ivy on his big night on the town!
