Research reveals women in happy relationships are more likely to survive breast cancer

Women with breast cancer who are happily married have a better chance of survival than those in unhappy relationships, according to scientists.

Previous research has shown women with larger social networks are more likely to survive the disease. Now a new study has found the quality of a woman’s personal relationships are just as important as how many people she interacts with.
A team from the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in California studied 2,264 women who were diagnosed with early-stage, invasive breast cancer between 1997 and 2000.
After providing information on their personal relationships, they were characterised as socially isolated – few ties, moderately integrated, or socially integrated, with many ties.
Study leader Candyce Kroenke, said: ‘We found that women with small social networks had a significantly higher risk of mortality than those with large networks.’
The study found that socially isolated women were 34 per cent more likely to die from breast cancer or other causes than socially integrated women.

Frank Edoho secretly re-marries?

I put a question mark there because I don't know for sure if they are married but the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire host recently introduced Sandra Onyenaucheya as his wife. Not girlfriend or fiancee, as wife. He told guests at the unveiling of the new Heineken bottle which held at the Federal Palace hotel some days back, that he came to the event with his wife, Sandra, who was wearing a wedding band.

The couple went public last year after Frank Edoho ended his marriage with mother of his three children, TV gal, Katherine Edoho. Sandra, a mother of one, moved into Frank's VGC home sometime last year and there were reports that they planned to marry soon. Guess the deed has been done! 
Men find it so easy to divorce and remarry, guess making it work has left their dictionary but i can't judge him tho...sometimes it could be for the best...Congrats to them

The love affair between Malaika and Sindodo weathered a storm not too long ago when the latter took ill that almost terminated her life. After she survived the illness with Malaika standing firm by her side through the ordeal, they renewed the love affair and many thought it would last forever- at least for now. But before anyone knew what was happening, the good-looking fuji star decided to embark on a love journey with the pretty ex-wife of Saidi Balogun. It was also gathered that both Malaika and Fathia have been friends while Saidi Balogun was her husband but since Fathia’s marriage crashed, she has been searching for a companion. We gathered that Alao Malaika has been her confidant and adviser. Besides, their relationship is very cordial as we learnt.

LADIES FRIDAY - Tips on Buying A Well-Fitted Bra

How to Buy a Well Fitting Bra
Finding a bra that is fits well is a simple, but time-consuming task. By following these steps, you should not only be able to find one that fits, but is comfortable as well.
1.) Measure Your Bra Size. There are a number of different methods. Some methods add 4 or 5 inches to your rib cage measurement, others do not. Different methods work best for different body types. If you find that the method you used didn’t work, try others to get a more accurate result. Whichever method you use, remember that your result is just a starting point.
2.) Determine what kind of bra you want. Do you want one that is padded for an extra boost? Or underwire for extra support? What about a sports bra for any athletic activities? Once you have decided what kind of bra or bras you want, you’re ready for the next step.
3.) Go to the store. Try to find a bra band and cup sizes one size bigger and smaller than your size.
4.) Put one on with the clasp on the loosest fitting. Bras have a tendency to get looser as time goes on due to washing and wearing, so by trying it on this way you’ll make sure it will last longer. Tighten the shoulder straps.

GEJ has failed as a President and leader – Singer Lami laments

The recent fuel price hike and subsequent scarcity has got everyone in a tense mood, coupled with the ban on commercial motorbikes (Okada) which has resulted in more traffic jams across a ‘mega city’ in the making.
Nigerian Soul-Pop singer Lami Phillips seems to be one of the many Nigerians who’s not happy about the situation and state of the nation in general. And she says Nigeria’s first citizen Goodluck Jonathan ‘has failed as a president and leader’.
The lawyer expressed her mind on Instagram as she posted a photo showing a fleet of cars queuing at a fuel station.

"Okonjo-Iweala must go" —Protesters

The protest was under the auspices of Anti-Corruption Network led by former House of Representatives member, Dino Melaye and coincided with the time the minister was attending the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.

The demonstration seemed to have taken staff of the ministry by surprise as many of the staff members abandoned duties to watch the protesters who occupied the entrance to the ministry.

Some of the placards carried by the protesters read, “Economic policies would kill us,” “Ngozi Okojo-Iweala is an imperialist agent,” “Ngozi Okojo-Iweala must go,” “Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is our major problem,” “You can’t be saving money when Nigerians are suffering,” among others.

The university was shut down on October 9th 2012 after the protest by students over the murder of their colleagues at Omuokiri village, Aluu, one of the host communities of the institution.

I can confirm to you that the Senate met in an Emergency meeting on Wednesday (yesterday) and directed that the University be reopened immediately for resumption of normal academic  activities.
“All students have been directed to return to the Campus on between now and the weekend, while lectures will commence on Monday. The resumption was sequel to the return of peace to the University’s neighbourhood, especially Omuokiri in. Aluu.
“The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Joseph Ajienka, has met with the landlords who have guaranteed the safety of students and staff,” he said in the statement reported by ThisDay.
We cannot forget in a hurry the brutal murder of the students - Ugonna Obuzor, (18), Lloyd Toku, (19), Tekena Elkanah, (20) and Chiadika Biringa, (20). However, we pray that their colleagues and friends find the strength to deal with the loss and for peace henceforth at the University of Portharcourt

He's so cute! He's 24, so remove ya eyes from dia! :-) Sydney's dad is Nigerian, his mum German. He was born and raised in Germany and has played in that country all his life...until now. He has agreed to play for the country of his father’s birth - Nigeria.

The Bayer Leverkusen striker played for the German under-19 and under-20s national team but has never played for the German senior team which makes him eligible to play for the Nigerian senior national team.

Coach Stephen Keshi said yesterday that Sydney is keen to join up with the rest of the Super Eagles players ahead of the African Nations Cup in South Africa
