One commuter described how the horrifying incident unfolded to a local news station. .

She went on the tracks to get her phone, but she couldn't get back up from off the tracks, and the 'L' was coming," McAllister told ABC 7 "The 'L' came, and it hit her.

 She couldn't get back up. She should just have left the phone down there. It ain't worth her losing her life.

5 Amazing benefits of breastfeeding that most people don’t know


Breastfeeding is good for the baby; most people know that. This does not mean that those who decide not to breastfeed are bad parents because the formula is a healthy alternative. 
However, there are some benefits of breastfeeding that we seldom talk about and it is time we did. The truth is that breastfeeding can be beneficial to both mother and child, and you are about to find out how.
1. Lowers the risk of SIDS
SIDS refers to sudden infant death syndrome. It is not clear why exactly it happens but there are risk factors that have been associated with it. Luckily, preventive measures have also been identified and one of them is breastfeeding. Experts say that breastfeeding for the first 6 months, even if it is non-exclusively, greatly lowers the risk of SIDS.
2. Plays a huge role in your baby’s digestion
Breast milk helps in stopping your baby from being constipated or developing acid reflux because breast milk is perfect for the baby’s delicate digestive tract.
3. Reduces the risk of ear infections
This is largely because the milk contains all the nutrients that your baby needs to grow up hale and hearty.
4. Convenience
You may not be able to whip out your breast everywhere to feed your baby but it sure helps that you have food with you wherever you go, one that contains all the needed nutrients and is always at the perfect temperature. 
5. Helps with childbirth recovery
I already said that is not about the baby alone. Of course, we would talk about you too. The American Academy of Paediatrics says that breastfeeding mothers tend to recover from childbirth more quickly than others who don’t. This is because of the hormone oxytocin which is released during breastfeeding. It helps the uterus return to its normal size quickly and reduces postpartum bleeding.
Trust me, there are other benefits of breastfeeding you haven’t heard of but I will bring you up to speed.

DNA evidence leads Police to arrest Ayoola Ajayi for allegedly kidnapping, murdering and burning a lady in Salt Lake City, Utah


DNA evidence leads Police to arrest Nigerian man Ayoola Ajayi for allegedly kidnapping, murdering and burning a lady in US .

Yesterday, the Salt Lake City Police department confirms that 31-year-old Nigerian national identified as Ayoola Adisa Ajayi has been charged with aggravated murder and kidnapping in the case of missing Utah student, Mackenzie Lueck.

Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown said DNA testing shows that during a search of Ajayi’s residence, human tissue was found and subsequent DNA testing showed it was a match for the missing woman, who disappeared on June 17th. “I will not be saying the killer’s name again,” Brown said, reported the Salt Lake Tribune, after announcing the suspect’s arrest.

Lueck, a 23-year-old University of Utah student, arrived in Salt Lake City from California after attending her grandmother’s funeral. She texted her parents when her flight landed before getting a Lyft to Hatch Park, which is about eight miles from her home.  She met a person at around 3 a.m. and left in another car but three days later, her parents reported her missing.

The suspect’s neighbors had told detectives they allegedly saw Ajayi “burning something in his back yard with the use of gasoline” on June 17 and 18. Other charred material was located which has now been forensically determined to be female human tissue. He also sold a mattress online in an attempt to get rid of the evidence.

Lueck’s last communications were with Ajayi, who was briefly a member of the Utah Army National Guard in the past, but he was discharged and the location of the deceased’s and Ajayi’s phones pinged at a park within less than a minute of each other, at which time her phone stopped receiving data around 3 a.m. on June 17.

"I'd be absolutely fine if my children were gay" Prince William says


Prince William said today that it would be "absolutely fine" if any of his children identified as gay and he would support them through it.
He made this statement while visiting Albert Kennedy Trust (AKT), an LGBT charity in Hoxton, east London, that helps LGBT young people who were made homeless because of their sexual orientation.
While speaking during his visit today, the Duke of Cambridge has said he worries about the pressures his children may face if in future they came out as gay or lesbian. He said he would be "absolutely fine" if they did, but he worries about the persecution they may face. He went on to admit he had discussed the subject with his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge.

He also expressed his shock at the recent bus attack on a lesbian couple, saying: "I was really appalled by that attack." The Prince was asked by a young gay man what he would do if any of his kids comes out as gay.
The man, who chose to be anonymous asked: "If your child one day in the future said: ‘Oh I’m gay, oh I’m lesbian,’ whatever, how would you react?" Prince William replied: "I think you don’t really start thinking about that until you are a parent, and I think – obviously, absolutely fine by me."

The father-of-three, added: "The one thing I’d be worried about is how, particularly the roles my children fill, how that is going to be interpreted and seen.
So Catherine and I have been doing a lot of talking about it to make sure they were prepared." He added: "It worries me not because of them being gay; it worries me how everyone else will react and perceive it and the pressure is then on them."

Photo: Ghana Deports 17 Nigerian Yahoo Boys


The Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has deported 17 out of 29 persons arrested in Ho, the Volta Regional capital for their alleged involvement in cybercrimes, known in Nigeria as ‘yahoo, yahoo’.

According to The Ghanaian Times, the Nigerians were handed over to the GIS for screening, following their arrest to determine their immigration status.

The Ho Municipal Police Commander, DSP Anthony Danso, who briefed the Times on Tuesday, said it emerged that the deported persons did not have good immigration standing.

Those who were found to be legal residents of Ho, were released and reunited with their various communities.

Danso noted that some landlords leased houses to some Nigerians, who in turn used them for various nefarious activities, including cyber fraud.

During the raid, the police retrieved 33 laptop computers, two television sets, one wireless router, and 20 cell phones as well some electronic gadgets.

Dad bags two years jail sentence for marrying his daughter and sleeping with her


A 21-year-old woman who had sex with her own father before marrying him has been spared jail after her father was locked up for two years.

Samantha Kershner, 21, got married to Travis Fieldgrove, 40, after she and her sister allegedly got locked in a sick fight over who could have sex with him first.

The father and daughter were charged with incest after being accused of having sex in two counties in Nebraska, US. But Kershner pleaded no contest to a misdemeanour charge of false reporting, a plea by which a defendant accepts conviction but does not plead or admit guilt, and got nine months probation.

Fieldgrove was jailed for two years last month after pleading no contest to attempted incest in a deal with prosecutors. The two also face incest charges in Hastings, Adams County, where they tied the knot last October, Metro UK reports.

Kershner is further accused of making false statements under oath. She is said to have first met Fieldgrove as a 17-year-old when her mum first told her he was her father.

Police started probing the relationship after Kershner’s mother reported that they had sex last September.

Fieldgrove denied he was Kershner’s dad but DNA tests proved 99.99 per cent he was, court files said. Documents also said Kershner claimed her motive to have sex with him was due to "jealous competition with her half-sister" about who could sleep with him first.

Police said: "This case relates to the two being involved in an intimate relationship beginning in September of 2018 in Grand Island, Nebraska, despite evidence that Fieldgrove is the paternal parent.

"Evidence leading up to the arrest suggests that Fieldgrove and Kershner were aware of the biological relationship before being intimate, and further indicates that they quickly married one another after being notified of the investigation.

She was arrested for using a pillow to kill her son and she said she was instructed by a demon


A Texas mom has been charged with capital murder after 'demons told her to sacrifice him.' According to Dailymail, a relative told police that Joevani Antonio Delapene, 8, was killed, possibly by suffocation with a pillow, in an RV behind his home.

Tisha Sanchez, 30, was jailed Sunday after someone was reported as being unconscious at about 7:30 a.m. at her home in Irving, north west of Dallas, Texas.

Sanchez also called police and said she thought her son had died, according to the affidavit.
The Dallas County medical examiner said that Joevani had already died when they arrived at the home.

Sanchez - whose bail hasn't been set yet - was transferred from the Irving jail to the Dallas County jail on Monday.
As well as her capital murder charge the 30-year-old is also facing assault of a peace officer and resisting arrest.

11 Funny but popular women hairstyles

Let’s talk about hairstyles today. Let’s get to know you better. How many hairstyles do you know? How many have you done so far since you were born? What is your best hairstyle? 
Today, we will check out some hairstyles in Nigeria and how funny the names of these hairstyles may sound. LOL! Most of us are familiar with some of these hairstyles. In any case, let us see.


Telephone Wire



This is one of the most popular hairstyles in Nigeria and very common among children who are about to clock to 5. That is why it is called the nation’s 5th birthday hairstyle.  Doesn’t the name sound funny or amusing? 

Koroba

The koroba is another popular hairstyle, but mostly among the Yorubas. If you watch or see most Yoruba village movies, you will see this type of hairstyle. It is called an inverted shuku because it is the reverse of the shuku hairstyle we are familiar with. The hair is braided downward from the middle of your head on all sides of the head, forming a basket-like shape. 
Patewo
From the name, it means ‘clap’ when translated from Yoruba because the hairstyle looks like clapped hands. However, it doesn’t belong to this particular set of people because even the Igbos do it. For example, this is one of Chimamanda Adichie’s favourite hairs—and she is an Igbo woman. 
Police Cap
This is another funny hairstyle among Nigerians. The hairdresser braids the hair to the front and drops it down over the fore hair of the person, forming a beret. No wonder it is called the police cap!
Shuku
“What! I can’t plait shuku.” This is exactly what you hear from most of our aunties. But as we age, we get to know that this is just one of the best hairstyles so far because we won’t stress ourselves plaiting them.


Abeti Aja (Dog ears)
As the name implies, the hairstyle is braided to form two parts, known as dog ears. The name is so funny!
Agogo
This hairstyle when translated means to pile up. It was majorly fixed back then by would-be-married women. 
Ojokopeti (Rain don’t beat the ears)
This one is very funny oh! Rain don’t beat the ears?! This hairstyle is made by plaiting from one ear, then knotting across the other ear. 
Boys Follow Me
Another funny name for a hairstyle, indeed. This hairstyle was very common among ladies back then. It is the combination of patewo, base, and all-back.
Eko Bridge
This one too is awfully funny. It actually mimics the real Eko (Lagos) bridge. It is made by dividing the hair down into several sections. Then each of the sections is wrapped with a rubber thread and twisted, forming a bridge on the head of the lady. 
National Theatre
This hairstyle looks much like the National Theatre at Iganmu, Lagos State. It is quite similar to police cap (we discussed this in the previous article) with panumo on the left and right-hand sides of the head. 

I am one thousand and one percent sure that many ladies didn’t know the names of the hairstyles in this article until they saw them. 
Consider some of these hairstyles and think of the one you can do this month. I bet you it is just one of the best for you.

4 steps to having a healthier and relaxed hair


With the ongoing trend of natural hair, relaxed hair has been sort of relegated to the background. People now hold fast to the belief that healthy, luxuriant hair can only be achieved with their nappy hair.

Well, if you’re not hyper over joining the natural hair wagon just yet then you really need to discover ways of maintaining healthy relaxed hair because your straight tresses require even more special treatment due to their processed nature.

Here are some helpful tips on how to maintain healthy relaxed hair.

Go for no-heat styling
Heat treatments only dry out your hair when you become attached to them, keep the heat on the low or go for hairstyles that don’t require heat like braids, buns, and updos.


Condition regularly
Chemical treatments used in straightening the hair tend to strip it of its natural oil; always follow up your relaxer treatments with top-quality hair conditioners and moisturizers to restore much-needed moisture to your mane. Deep conditioning and hot oil treatments are also quite effective in helping you maintain healthy moisturized hair.

Regular trims 
In achieving healthy processed hair, trimming your hair ends is also important. Get rid of split and dry ends because they could cause hair breakage if ignored.

Wrap and protect at night
The best thing you can do for your hair before sleeping at night is wrapping your tresses in a silky scarf or wearing a satin bonnet. This ensures your hair gets extra protection all night and you might not need to get that curling or flat iron to it in restoring order to it the following day.

The movie is set to be released on the 28th of June, 2019 and it was filmed in Fiji

7 types of men you should ABSOLUTELY not marry


There are all kinds of men out there. Some of them are nice, while others are blatantly bad news. To save yourself the heartache, here are men that you should definitely not date.
Be warned!
1. The secretive type
Everyone is entitled to space and privacy but once he is a relationship with you, he should be ready to open up. Even if it is difficult for him, he should make an effort. If he keeps hiding stuff from you then it means he does not trust you. What kind of relationship is that?
2. The ‘smootherer’
This kind of guy just smoothers you with ‘love’ and says that he wants to marry you a month into the relationship (this may not always be a bad sign). At first, you may think he is really charming but he is actually just on the lookout for someone who will be emotionally dependent on him.
3. The insecure one
Need I say much? I don’t think so. You shouldn’t be with a man who hounds you and doesn’t let you make your decisions.
4. The Procrastinator
He is slow. There is no better way to describe him. If you are very industrious then a guy like this, who always puts stuff off, will definitely pull you back.
5. The unrepentant liar
You may catch him in a lie but he won’t admit it or he will try to manipulate his way out of it. That’s a guy to steer clear of.
6. The woman-hater
Of course, he is not going to announce that he hates women. He may not even realize that he does. But a man who does not value your opinions or thinks women are not his equal is not worth your time.
7. The hung-over guy
A guy who is still hung-over his ex is not the kind of guy you need. He will only attract heartache.

Men should not cook - Ugandan President

President Museveni of Uganda came under fire, on Monday, for saying he had not stepped into the kitchen since he got married, and that it was not a man's role to cook.

"The head of the home never goes into the kitchen. It is now 45 years with Mama Janet, I have never stepped into the kitchen.

That is how it should be," he said on Sunday in a statement, as an example of how politicians and civil servants should stick to proscribed roles.

Oxfam's International Executive Director, Winnie Byanyima, hit back at the 74-year-old president on Twitter, saying she was "disappointed".
. "Cooking isn't a woman's job. It's a life skill. All people - men and women should cook," she wrote.

"When cooking, cleaning and doing other domestic chores are left to women, they are denied an equal chance to raise incomes or to be politically active."




Ms Alice Alaso, a top mobiliser for The New Formation political pressure group said: "Museveni has revealed to the world what he has always believed in: that women can never be the same as their male counterparts."


A section of online publications however, defended Mr Museveni's comments as consistent with the country's culture which sees men cooking as "taboo", saying some ethnic groups in the country have a word referring to men who cook as a "transvestite or a man dressing and behaving like a woman."

Government should deduct tithes from workers salaries and forward to church - Archbishop says

A Catholic Archbishop of Kampala, Uganda, has suggested that the central government should deduct 10 per cent from the monthly salaries of workers and forward directly to the church as tithe.
Most Reverend Cyprian Kizito Lwanga made this statement during Mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral, Rubaga, adding that non-payment of tithes affects the development of the church.
He said, according to Citizen TV:
Whenever we ask for tithe, everyone gives only what they have at that time. But the Bible says a tenth of whatever you earn belongs to the church.
Give me your support as I front this proposal because it is good for us. Aren’t you tired of putting money in the baskets all the time?
Lwanga pointed out that in Germany, citizens who are registered as Catholics, Protestants or Jews have a church tax (Kirchensteuer) where 8 to 9 per cent of their annual income is deducted. The church tax is collected by the government and channeled to the respective religious organizations.
He said:
I was told Germans make agreements with their government to deduct monthly tithe from their salaries and forward it to the church and this money they use to build and renovate their churches.
