Instagram apologizes to girl with period pic, re-instates the photo

Instagram did not only apologize to Indian student Rupi Kaur for taking down her photo (left), they called it an accident and re-instated it. (If you don't know what this is about, read previous story HERE)

See Rupi's response to her photo being restored after the cut. I'm sorry, but I'd rather see a woman in a bikini than a woman menstruating...but to each his own and I'm glad instagram put it back up...

Nigeria’s Elections: Court Refuses To Stop Use Of Card Reader

A Federal High Court in Abuja has refused to grant an application for an interim injunction to stop the use of card readers for the conduct of Nigeria’s general elections starting on Saturday.

The suit was filed by a Senatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Wasiu Taiwo.
Senator Taiwo, through his counsel, Ajibola Oloyede, sought an order of the court to stop the use of the Smart Card Readers on grounds that they were unconstitutional for election in Nigeria.
Non-Tested Development
He also claimed that the electronic device could plunge the nation into chaos, as it was a new and non-tested development in the electoral process.
But the presiding Judge, Justice Adeniyi Ademola, refused the order and put the case off until April 24.
Justice Ademola said his decision was based on the grounds that the defendants to the matter, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Attorney General of the Federation, were not in court.

Groom tries to ‘drown himself after seeing ugly bride for the first time’

Groom Kang Hu was apparently so disgusted after seeing his bride for the first time he attempted to drown himself.

‘I feel bad about what happened but when I saw her she wasn’t what I had expected and I realised she would be bad for my image,’ he reportedly said after being fished from a river.
It was claimed the 33-year-old stunned guests when he apologised to bride Na Sung, 30, after saying she was ‘too ugly’ before the wedding in Shiyan, in central China’s Hubei province.
He hadn’t been able to get a glimpse of her because it was an arranged marriage, which he had been forced into.
Hours after the cancelled ceremony he was apparently spotted lying face down in a river.
‘He was unconscious and I thought he was dead,’ claimed eyewitness Qan Tsui, 25, who took photos of the rescue.
Kang was rushed to hospital where doctors said he was in a stable condition.

Nigeria election: What you need to know - CNN

(CNN)Nigerians go to the polls Saturday to determine who will lead Africa's most populous nation. The stakes are high in this election as the nation faces intensified attacks by extremist group Boko Haram. With security catapulting into a key issue, which candidate will voters trust to keep them safe? As Nigeria decides, here's what you need to know: Why does Nigeria's election matter? Nigeria is home to about 173 million people and is considered a powerhouse in the region. Its stability is crucial to combating the growing risk of Islamist terrorists, who thrive on instability. As Boko Haram seeks to extend its tentacles with its recent pledge of allegiance to ISIS, Nigeria has teamed up with neighboring Chad and Cameroon in a counteroffensive against the terror group. And it appears to be working, with its military saying it has recaptured several key cities from the militants. The next leader will have to ensure the gains stay on track. As we have learned with ISIS in Iraq and…

SEE The Photo That Was Deleted by Instagram And The Poster Wrote A powerful Open Letter To Them

Indian student Rupi Kaur, a Sikh poet studying at the University of Waterloo, Canada, posted an image which is a part of her photo-series project for a visual rhetoric course on Instagram. It was subsequently taken down by Instagram citing violation of the 'Community Guidelines'. That's the pic above.

Looking at the photo, you will understand why it was taken down. The patch of menstrual blood on the sheets and the sweats were probably not to their taste. However, Rupi decided to re-post the photo and wrote a powerful open letter. Read that after the cut...

 "Thank you @instagram for providing me with the exact response my work was created to critique. You deleted a photo of a woman who is fully covered and menstruating stating that it goes against community guidelines when your guidelines outline that it is nothing but acceptable. The girl is fully clothed. The photo is mine. It is not attacking a certain group. Nor is it spam. And because it does not break those guide…

The man pulled the second snake out of the body of the first one and laid them both on the ground next to each other.

Photos: Woman beats teacher in front of her students for sleeping with her husband

A woman savagely beat a teacher in front of her students after claiming that the teacher was having an affair with her husband. But instead of the students and other members of staff to stop the fight, they stood aside, watched the fight, filmed it and uploaded the clip on Youtube. Dang!!

35 year old Laelia Paredes Flores, stormed into the classroom in Huimanguillo in south-east Mexico, and attacked 32 year old Marcella Villalpando Tovar. Tovar was kicked, punched in her face and stomach and jumped on. And her students didn't do anything to stop it. In fact, another woman can be heard off camera encouraging the beat down. Wow! See the video below

Student Miriam Gracia Adomo, 16, said: "The woman charged in and began shouting and screaming before punching our teacher to the floor.That’s when I ran to get help. But when other teachers came they just stood around watching. It was really terrible, terrible." After the act was widely condemned, a school spokesperson released a st…

Terrorists killed as troops recapture Gwoza, BH HQ + photos from the operation

Statement from the Defence Headquarters below and photos from the operation after the cut.. Sequel to the violent and heinous crimes perpetrated by terrorists in North Eastern Nigeria, the Armed Forces of Nigeria was tasked to halt the carnage and restore sanity in that region. This resulted in the deployment of land and air forces. The deployment denied the terrorists the freedom of action they had hitherto enjoyed and they resorted to diversionary tactics known with terrorist groups around the world by carrying out isolated attacks and bombings. 

The series of deployment and operational effectiveness of the military were however challenged by the porosity of the borders, which gave the terrorists leverage to operate in Nigeria and retreat into safe havens in neighbouring countries of Niger, Chad and Cameroon. The recent reinvigoration of a partnership between Nigeria and these neighbouring countries under the auspices of Multi-National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) provided the desired res…

Ascon Oil reveals cause of yesterday’s Lekki fire outbreak + Photo Of The Two Burnt Tankers

Ascon filling station at Lekki Phase 1 caught fire on Thursday but was contained by the Swift response of the Fire Team on ground and the Lagos state fire service.
The incident saw the destruction of millions of naira worth of property but no life was lost.
In a statement signed by digital analyst, Quadrant Company, Ugbegua George Odianose, Ascon explained that the main building and the reservoirs of the fuel station were unaffected due to the safety precaution taken by the oil company to build its discharge point away from the main building.
The fire outbreak was caused from a discharge at the point of offloading product from a tanker, engulfing two tankers and some vehicles parked by the road side.
“It was an accident compounded by the current fuel scarcity in the country with ASCON OIL being one of the few stations with a reliable steady supply even in times of scarcity. No life was lost to the incident, the pumps are intact and emergency fire service officers were on site to contain t…
