(WATCH) A Woman Caught On Camera Taking a Selfie and Bends Over To Snap a Photo Of Her Butt

An unidentified woman who spent maybe a bit longer than she should have trying to capture the right selfie angle in front of the wrong person.

The video-taker kind of loses it when the woman with the phone bends over and appears to snap a photo of her butt. We're kind of losing it that she lost it over something so silly, as we watch the video that she made of herself wasting a minute of her life watching someone take photos of herself.

IT WAS A RUMOUR: Meet the man who started the Michael Essien EBOLA RUMOUR.

When rumours that AC Milan midfielder and Ghanaian football star, Michael Essien, has contracted the dreaded Ebola Virus Disease surfaced earlier today, the African football circle was thrown into a frenzy, with many praying that the story turns out as false. 

It was not long before it became clear that it was nothing more than rumours which allegedly must have been ignited by someone out to cause mischief. 

Named Юрий Алкаев, his Twitter handle is @YuryAlkaev and his bio reads: ‘former SVR agent currently living in Northern Ireland. 

Owner of several Casino franchises across the British Isles and Scandinavia. Sports journalist.’ However, with the confusion caused by his tweets which quotes the spokesman of AC Milan in a report that is nowhere near the truth, one wonders what kind of journalist Alkaev is.

Read the rumour tweets below;

Breaking news: Ghana international and AC Milan star Michael Essien has contracted Ebola, his club has confirmed.

Cameroon Pay Boko Haram Ransom, Arms To Release Hostages

The Cameroonian authorities paid Boko Haram insurgents about $400,000 (N66 million) to secure the release of Francoise Agnes Moukouri, wife of Vice Prime Minister Amadou Ali, and other hostages. A source of SaharaReporters revealed the details of the deal, saying that the terms of the settlement included the payment of an undisclosed sum of money from the Chinese government. Boko Haram subsequently released 10 Chinese construction workers who had been held hostage since their abduction in May. While Mrs. Ali had been abducted by Boko Haram in July from the town of Kolofata. In addition, the Cameroonian government agreed to release four commanders of the Islamist group who had been in Cameroonian jails. However, the most disturbing part of the deal is that Boko Haram militants reportedly demanded and received a significant supply of arms and ammunition, including a guarantee by Cameroon that the weapons would have safe passage to insurgent fighters. According to SaharaReporters, President I…

Dangers of Indecent Dressing for our Young Ladies

Piety and reverence is typically synonymous with modesty. But today, caution seems to have been thrown to the wind as indecent dressing, even in places of worship, has become a trend.

Clergies are beginning to express fears over the spate of indecent dressing in churches, especially by ladies. This phenomenon, that was once alien to Africa, is gradually becoming a norm and is contributing to the increase in the rate of immorality and other ills plaguing the society.

The ugly act has taken a dangerous dimension in the society with young ladies often found in attires that reveal their body anatomy inside out. To many, the dressing pattern is suggestive of something. More embarrassing is the fact those dresses are largely transparent.
|| "Our pride as women lies in hidden and protected treasure; but when a girl exposes it to the public, it reduces her worth in the sight of everyone in society and it makes the man to lose respect in her, there won’t be anything left for the man to explo…

Pastor Oritsejafor's Relationship with Asari Dokubo Questioned

The complex saga revolving CAN President Ayo Oritsejafor’s purported involvement in the South African arms deal scandal has taken a new twist with his connection to Asari-Dokubo under scrutiny. 

On Wednesday, the National Publicity Secretary of All Progressives Congress (APC), Lai Mohammed had alleged that Asari Dokubo was on board the plane belonging to Oritsejafor that illegally ferried US$9.3 million to South Africa for the purchase of weaponry. 
"If these arms are meant to fight insurgency, as the government has claimed, what is Asari Dokubo’s business purchasing arms for the Nigerian military, if indeed they were for the military? Does it not occur to the Nigerian government that this man who once took arms against the state may not have jettisoned his sinister plan against the same state,” the statement read.
This was followed by an old picture reappearing on social media purporting to show Oritsejafor smiling with Asari Dokubo and Mohammed Yusuf, the late leader and instigato…

EBOLA NOW IN US: Texas health worker contracts Ebola after ‘breach of protocol’

DALLAS — A Texas health care worker who was in full protective gear while providing hospital care for an Ebola patient who later died has tested positive for the virus and is in stable condition, health officials said Sunday. If the preliminary diagnosis is confirmed, it would be the first known case of the disease being contracted or transmitted in the U.S.

Meanwhile, a top federal health official said the health care worker’s Ebola diagnosis shows there was a clear breach of safety protocol and all those who treated Thomas Eric Duncan are now considered to be potentially exposed.
Dr. Daniel Varga, of the Texas Health Resources, said during a news conference Sunday that the worker wore a gown, gloves, mask and shield while they provided care to Duncan during his second visit to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. Varga did not identify the worker and says the family of the worker has “requested total privacy.”
Varga says the health care worker reported a fever Friday night as part of a …

As she was forced to take off more and more of her belongings, the singer seemed to become increasingly upset until she finally tossed one of her black leather boots to the ground.
