WNBA star, Maya Moore has married Jonathan Irons, the Missouri man she helped work to free from prison after a 22-year-old wrongful conviction.

 

Irons was 16 when he was convicted for a 1997 home invasion and shooting and sentenced to 50 years in prison. He served more than two decades of prison sentence until he was released in July.

 

Appearing together on "Good Morning America," Moore, 31, revealed on Wednesday September 16, that she and Irons, 40, got married a couple of months ago. 

 

"We wanted to announce today that we are super excited to continue the work that we've been doing together, but doing it as a married couple," Moore said. 

 

The basketballer later took to Instagram to share a lovely photo from their wedding with the caption: "Grateful to announce this new chapter of life! What a miracle."

 

Irons, who is now a justice reform activist, said in the interview that he first proposed while he was still in prison, but didn't want to "trap her " from fulfilling her dreams. 

 

“I wanted to marry her but at the same time protect her because being in a relationship with a man in prison, it’s extremely difficult and painful,” he said. “And I didn’t want her to feel trapped and I wanted her to feel open and have the ability anytime if this is too much for you, go and find somebody. Live your life. Because this is hard.”

 

On the night, he asked Moore to be his wife, he said: “I got down on my knees and I looked up at her and she kind of knew what was going on,” Irons said. “I said, ‘Will you marry me.’ She said, ‘Yes.’ ”

According to CBS News, Moore met Irons when she was 18 before attending UConn and had to put her career on hold in 2019 to help Irons get out of prison. 

 

In March, a judge threw out his conviction, citing multiple issues with the case. An appeal against the decision by the Missouri attorney general's office was unsuccessful and the lead prosecutor in St. Charles County decided against a retrial.

 

Moore who is sitting out from playing basketball for the second straight season, has won two NCAA titles with Connecticut, four WNBA titles with the Minnesota Lynx, and two Olympic gold medals.

Update: Judge rules in favor of Nicki Minaj in Tracy Chapman copyright dispute

 

Update: Judge rules in favor of Nicki Minaj in Tracy Chapman copyright dispute

A Judge has ruled in favor of Nicki Minaj in the copyright dispute between the rapper and four-time Grammy winner, Tracy Chapman. 

 

Back in 2018, Tracy Chapman sued Nicki Minaj for 'stealing her song' 'Baby Can I Hold You.' She alleged that the rapper used 'half of the lyrics and vocal melody' of the 1988 hit to make her track “Sorry.”

 

In her lawsuit, the American singer-songwriter sought damages and an order to prevent Nicki and her team from releasing “Sorry.” She also claimed that Nicki’s team made “multiple requests” to license “Baby Can I Hold You” and was denied. 

 

As at that time, Minaj denied committing copyright infringement, stating that her interpolation was protected by the doctrine of fair use.

 

 A judge has now handed Nicki victory in court on Wednesday Septenber 16, when she ruled that the rapper did not commit copyright infringement when she wrote and recorded her song, Variety reports.

 

Judge Virginia A. Phillips cited the doctrine of fair use in her ruling. “Artists usually experiment with works before seeking licenses from rights holders and rights holders typically ask to see a proposed work before approving a license,” Phillips wrote. “A ruling uprooting these common practices would limit creativity and stifle innovation within the music industry.”

International travelers who are positive are arriving Nigeria with fake COVID-19 negative results- PTF raises alarm

 

International travelers who are positive are arriving Nigeria with fake COVID-19 negative results- PTF raises alarm

The Presidential Taskforce PTF on COVID-19 has raised an alarm that some International travelers who are COVID-19 positive, are coming into the country with fake COVID-19 PCR negative results.

 

Recall that the Federal government announced that one of the protocols to be obeyed as the international airspace reopens is for all inbound passengers to undergo a COVID0-19 test 72 hours before arriving Nigeria and that the result must be negative. 

 

However, the National Co-Ordinator of the PTF, Dr Sani Aliyu, today said fraudulent activities have been noticed in some of the test results presented on arrival. According to Sani, some travellers arrived in the country with negative COVID-19 test results but were later discovered to be COVID-19 positive. He stated this when he and other members of the taskforce appeared before the Joint Senate Committee on Health and Aviation on the testing procedures following the reopening of the International airspace.

 

When we started the evacuation flights, the arrangement then was that people coming into the country will need to have a negative COVID-19 PCR result, with the test validity put at the time in seven days.

There were indications from some specific countries where we had up to 40% of the passengers in the single flight coming in with a negative COVID-19 PCR result and subsequently being tested and found positive''he said

 

Sani said the test results presented by inbound travellers can no longer be trusted. He said 13 countries have been identified to have travelers with fake COVID-19 test results and the Federal government has written to the embassies to correct this anomaly.

BBNaija: Prince rejects Gofundme account set up for him by his fans after his eviction

Recently evicted BBNaija housemate, Prince Enwerem, has rejected a GoFundMe account set up for him by his fans after his eviction.

 

Just as Erica's fans did, Prince's fans came together to set up a GoFundMe account to contribute towards the actualization of his dream of owning a salon. Fans of Erica who was disqualified from the reality TV show, have so far donated over $35, 160 into the GoFundMe they set up for her.

 

However, Prince says this is not the time for Nigerians to part away with their hard-earned money as the Coronavirus pandemic has had an adverse effect on the finances of many. His post reads

My dear Royal Army, I’m still overwhelmed and trying to soak in all the love you have been showing me. I’m sincerely speechless because I never expected the love I’m receiving.

This GoFundMe account was brought to my attention last night and I almost teared up by the mere thought and intentions behind it.

We are experiencing difficult times now and people still want to do this for me?
Nah, I think it’s time you all rest while I think of what to do to pay you all back for the surreal love.

I sincerely appreciate this gesture, but I want my Royal Army to save their funds on this one.

My dream of starting a salon will surely come to pass ASAP, as I already have some Investors and hopefully some brands interested in this dream.

I want to make you all proud and all I need right now is the continuous love, spiritual and moral support you all have been excessively showing me.

Thank you to my beautiful and wonderful Royal Army @flyest_mz and @_Super_jewel for trying to put the GoFund together. Love you guys so much.

My media rounds is still ongoing but I can’t wait to interact with everyone of you on a personal level soon on my IG live.

Love you all my darlings

I will miss him everyday, he was everything I try to be" - Bill Gates reveals his father, William Gates Sr, has died aged 94

Billionaire Microsoft CEO and founder, Bill Gates has revealed that his father, William Gates Sr, has died at the age of 94.

 

The elder Gates died peacefully at home, surrounded by his family, his son said as he expressed how lucky he and his sisters Kristianna and Libby are to have been raised by their father.

 

According to Bill Gates, his dad made him give a $100 million contribution to research for Alzheimer's disease, after he revealed his father suffered from it in 2018.

 

I will miss him everyday, he was everything I try to be" - Bill Gates reveals his father, William Gates Sr, has died aged 94

 

He also revealed his dad's support inspired him to leave Harvard University to co-found a company with Paul Allen in 1975.

 

Late Tuesday night, Bill penned an emotional tribute to his late father on his personal blog, saying: "I will miss my dad every day."

 

I will miss him everyday, he was everything I try to be" - Bill Gates reveals his father, William Gates Sr, has died aged 94

 

"We will miss him more than we can express right now. We are feeling grief but also gratitude."

"My dad’s passing was not unexpected he was 94 years old and his health had been declining, so we have all had a long time to reflect on just how lucky we are to have had this amazing man in our lives for so many years.

"My dad’s wisdom, generosity, empathy, and humility had a huge influence on people around the world."

"I knew their love and support were unconditional, even when we clashed in my teenage years. I am sure that’s one of the reasons why I felt comfortable taking some big risks when I was young, like leaving college to start Microsoft with Paul Allen," he said.

"We worked together at the foundation not so much as father and son but as friends and colleagues," he said.

"When we started doing so in a big way at the foundation, we had no idea how much fun we would have. We only grew closer during more than two decades of working together."

"When I am at my best, I know it is because of what I learned from my dad about respecting women, honoring individuality, and guiding children’s choices with love and respect," Gates said.

"The experience of being the son of Bill Gates was incredible. People used to ask my dad if he was the real Bill Gates. The truth is, he was everything I try to be." the Microsoft CEO wrote on Gates Notes.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick could be expanding their family.

 

In the latest Keeping Up With The Kardashians trailer for the season 19, it was teased that the pair, who share children Mason, 10, Penelope, 8, and Reign, 5, could be having baby number four.

 

“Scott’s like, ‘We’re going for baby No. 4.’ Was that serious? I want to know,” Kim Kardashian asks her eldest sister during a family lunch on a patio of a mansion.

 

While Kourtney refused to give an answer to the question, Momager Kris Jenner then asks her, “Are you pregnant?”

 

It is likely that the two may be back together as they have been spending time together.

 

Kourtney was linked to ex Younes Bendjima in 2019, while Scott dated Sofia Richie before they called it quits again after briefly reuniting this summer following a break earlier this year. 

President Buhari explains why his administration has resorted to borrowing

 


President Buhari explains why his administration has resorted to borrowing

President Buhari on Tuesday September 15, explained why his administration resorted to borrowing money. 

 

Speaking in a virtual meeting with members of the Presidential Economic Advisory Council (PEAC), Buhari said the strategic reason for borrowing was to provide the infrastructure to make the country attractive to investors.

 

According to the President in a statement released by his spokesperson Malam Garba Shehu, the country must fix roads and save lives from perishing in road accidents, 

 

Buhari noted that the country’s failure to provide infrastructure for effective transportation had robbed the country of its well-deserved status.

 

He said; 

 

“We have so many challenges with infrastructure. We just have to take loans to do roads, rail and power, so that investors will find us attractive and come here to put their money."

 

On the economy, Buhari said; 

 

“We have to accept that decision; otherwise they (Middle-East producers) can flood the market and make the product unviable. So we have cooperated with what we get. With oil, we are in a difficult situation. The politics of oil is that the less you produce, the less you earn. 

“For us to bounce back to productivity, especially in agriculture, the unemployed with many of them uneducated had to be persuaded to go into agriculture.

‘‘If we hadn’t gone back to the lands we would have been in trouble by now. That is why we virtually stopped the importation of food thereby saving jobs and foreign exchange.”

 

The Nigerian leader also commented on the issue of COVID-19 pandemic and how it necessitated the government policies on energy (electricity) and petrol.

 

Buhari added; 

 

“COVID has reduced us to the same level as developed countries.

‘‘We are lucky we went back to the land. We eat what we produce. We are doing our best to secure the country and provide infrastructure for investment to be viable in the country."

Missing Nigerian student, Caleb Obari found dead in Ukraine weeks after his parents issued plea to help find him

 


Missing Nigerian student, Caleb Obari found dead in Ukraine weeks after his parents issued plea to help find him

Caleb Obari, the 21-year-old Nigerian graduate who went missing in August after attending a yacht party with friends, has been found dead in Odesa Oblast, Ukraine.

 

Caleb's body was found on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020, near the coastline in Chornomorsk. According to the police, the cause of death is yet to be established and his case is currently being investigated as an accident.

 

Recall that weeks ago Caleb's parents released a video begging for help in finding their son who attended a Yacht party with friends after they were invited by a woman only for them to return without him. They stated that the friends and the woman should be questioned about what happened to their son (read here).

According to a volunteer group called Rescue Platform 911, Obari was invited to a party on a boat by Vera Topalova, owner of a BDSM-themed bar Iznanka in Odesa. Out of about 10 passengers on the boat, Obari was the only foreigner. The boat set sail from the Sauvignon Yacht Club in Odesa and went four kilometers out from the coast but returned without Obari. 

 

The deceased friend who waited for him after the party was over said that when the boat arrived without Obari, other passengers gave his personal belongings, including a mobile phone, to him without any explanation of what happened.

 

Few days after Obari’s disappearance, Topalova in a Facebook post, admitted to inviting him to the party but said he went swimming in the sea together with other guests and went missing which indicates he had drowned since he couldn’t swim.

 

After his disappearance, friends took to Twitter to trend the hashtag #JusticeForCaleb and a protest was held near the Nigerian Embassy and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kyiv on Aug 31.

Woman bags jail sentence after deliberately sawing off her hand to claim ?925,000 in insurance scam

22-year-old Julija Adlesic from Ljubljana in Slovenia has bagged a three year jail sentence after deliberately sawing off her hand to claim a £925,000 insurance payout. 

 

Adlesic reportedly hatched the macabre plot with her boyfriend and arrived the hospital when they knew the hand could not be reattached. Adlesic told hospital authorities that she injured herself while sawing branches.

Just days before the incident in early 2019, police investigations found Adlesic's partner, Sebastien Abramov searched online for information on artificial hands work. This was used as evidence that the amputation was part of an insurance scam plot. 

 

Their plan was foiled after police recovered the appendage and surgeons reattached it. The 22-year-old lady however protested her innocence during her trial, saying she would never have deliberately chopped off her hand .

 

She said;

 

 "No one wants to be crippled.

"My youth has been destroyed. I lost my hand at the age of 20.

"Only I know how it happened."

She was subsequently found guilty of attempted insurance fraud by a court in the city. Sentencing her to three years, Judge Marjeta Dvornik said; 

 

 "We believe the sentences are fair and appropriate, and will serve their purpose."

 

Her boyfriend Abramov was sentenced to three years in prison while his dad received a one-year suspended sentence.

The next morning, a group of five officers approached Whelan after 6 a.m. while he was on the boat. 

 

“When they identified themselves, he reached for his weapon and committed suicide,” Smiles said. "It was a very quick.

The house was originally built in 1844 by builder William Holme Twentyman, and the first owner of the property was Daniel Francis, a diamond tycoon who was a director and shareholder of De Beers Jewellers.
