Jessica Alba Breastfeeds Her Baby in a Target Dressing Room

Saturday, February 17, 2018 0

Alba, 36, and husband Cash Warren , 39, welcomed Hayes, their third child and first son, on New Year's Eve. 

As many breastfeeding moms know, when your kid gets hungry in a public place, sometimes you have to improvise.

Jessica Alba posted on her Instagram Stories feed on Friday a photo of herself nursing her 7-week-old son Hayes inside a Target department store dressing room.

"Tired eyes," the caption said, with a hand-drawn arrow pointed at the actress and Honest Company co-founder's face.

She also used a doggie ear filter in her image.
While Alba understandably sought privacy, according to California law, mothers are allowed to breastfeed their children in any public or private location and Target specifically allows breastfeeding anywhere inside its facilities.

Nigeria- Benue State University Shut Down Over Students Protest

Saturday, February 17, 2018 0

Due to the ongoing protest by students in the institution who were refused from sitting for exams over non-payment
of tuition. The institution has been shut down.

The management of Benue State University, Makurdi on Friday, shut down the institution following students protest
over tuition fees.

The action of the students is connected with the management’s decision to prevent anyone yet to pay tuition fees from
sitting examination, which commenced on Monday.

The angry students blocked the Makurdi/Gboko Expressway, forcing motorists to make use of alternative routes.

Some of the students, who expressed anger, said they embarked on the protest to draw the attention of the school’s authorities to the prevailing economic situation in the state.

One student, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said, “How can they stop us from sitting examination just because
we cannot pay school fees? Our parents are yet to be paid for several months by the Benue State Government, so where do
they want us to get the fees from?”

Another student, James Abah, said that their leaders proposed to the university authorities to allow them take the
examination and pay the fees at the time of collecting their certificates but that their request was rejected. 

Still waiting for more update on the matter.

Nigerian Stabbed In South Africa On Valentine's Day

Saturday, February 17, 2018 0

Should we call this xenophobia? As Nigerian man was stabbed in South
Africa and was almost set ablaze by some irate youths.

The Nigerian Community in South Africa said on Friday that a member was stabbed during a xenophobic attack in Rustenberg, North-West Province area.

The President of Nigerian Union, South Africa, Mr Adetola Olubajo, disclosed on telephone that the victim, identified as
Desmond, was attacked on February 14.
“Desmond is a Nigerian hair piece hawker in Rustenberg, North West Province of South Africa".

“He was attacked on February 14 and sustained multiple injuries. He was rescued when he was about to be set ablaze after being wet with petrol,’’ Olubajo said.

He said that the Nigerian community in Rustenburg was currently living in fear as tension has heightened in the area.
Olubajo said that the union`s executive had visited the city on a fact finding tour and had already spoken to Nigerians in the area.

“Nigerians and their families told us that the situation is very dangerous and that their lives are not safe. They also alleged that some group of people were abducting
Nigerians and requesting money to bail themselves".

“A Nigerian who couldn’t pay was murdered last month. This same group also looted businesses of foreign nationals,
Nigerians in particular,’’ the president said.
Olubajo said the union could not continue to keep quiet on this criminality and xenophobic act meted to Nigerians in
South Africa.

He said that there was need for the mission and government to intervene in the matter to avoid further loss of lives and
properties of Nigerians.

“There is need for the Nigerian government to engage with its counterpart in South Africa. It’s not correct that those who
were attacked and killed are criminals.
Such statements are misinformation and misleading,’’ he said.

USA News - Senior US Navy officials in Japan fired after one was found drunk, naked and wandering in the woods

Friday, February 16, 2018 0
The US Navy said on Friday it had removed three senior officers deployed in Japan for “personal misconduct”, after one was reportedly found wandering the base drunk and naked.

The navy did not disclose the details of the February 12 incident, but the Navy Times reported that Lieutenant Commander Jason Gabbard was relieved of duty after
“being discovered in the woods wearing only his boots”.

He was “found intoxicated and walking naked in the woods on Camp Shields” in Okinawa prefecture, the newspaper

Commander James Cho and Command Master Chief Jason Holden were sacked for their handling of the incident, the newspaper added.

The three have been temporarily assigned to the construction group in California, the navy said.

“Trust is the foundation for everything we do as military professionals, and we expect our service members to conduct themselves with the integrity and character to justify that trust,” the navy said in a statement.

“When there are any indications that those values are not being followed, we conduct appropriate investigations and take action as necessary.”

Japanese island community split over US army base Camp Schwab expansion as mayoral election looms Okinawa hosts the bulk of some 47,000 US troops based
in Japan, and their presence has been a source of friction with some local residents.

The prefecture was the site of a major second world war battle that was followed by a 27-year US occupation of the island, and it would serve as a launch pad for any
American military activity in Asia.
