Religion / Re: Why Can’t Catholics Eat Meat On Fridays During Lent? by babestell(f): 9:47pm
shdemidemi:
No one said you can't fast, I fast too. But it shouldn't be imposed on the church as if it is scriptural. You are aware of what scripture says about familiar spirit initiating such rules that people should not marry or eat. There is no precedence to such practice in scriptures, where are we getting it from?
The devil will not appear to us as a lion, we will run. He comes in subtlety by distorting and adulterating the gospel of God.


Finally I think I get your thought process. Well if this is how you think then it is beyond just prescribed days of fasting. Because the church imposed sunday, the Bible as it is etc

but then again different strokes for different folks.

BTW
what was the possession stats on the night sef?
Everybody wants the ball but which is more intelligent is doing something meaningful and decisive with the ball when you have it.
Possessing the ball for the purpose of stats is stark dumb.
70% possession and only 4 shots on goal
Compare with
30% possession and 8 shots on goal
If you be coach or judge which of the teams would you like or prefer.

Its like someone being given 1million naira for business and you end up spending 700,000 on research only to spend 300,000 on business and making only a profit of 100,000.
Or
Another startup being given same 1million naira spends only 300,000 on research spends 700,000 on the actual business and realises a profit margin of 1,000,000 naira.
If you are in the board of both companies wont you sack manager A and give manager B more funds to give you better ROI.
in the game of football your analogy doesn't quite suffice. Why? Because in football the better and more hard working team on the night doesn't always win. A more appropriate analogy would be 2 Intelligent students A and B. Student A studies very hard for 3 weeks and covers his entire scheme apart from just one page while B covers just that one page of his scheme studying for just one day. The test is set and luckily for student B more of the questions are set from the only page that he reads and he gets a higher score than A. Which of these 2 students would you prefer to employ as a private tutor for your young son? My point- you cannot judge the better of 2 teams by the shots on goal! Any bunch of 8 men can park the bus and have more shots on goal from counters, like granad did. Try to understand this.

Nairaland / General / PHOTOS: Woman Molested By DPO Inside Police Station In Lagos. by micheal633: 9:46pm
A 31-year-old woman, Idowu Akinwunmi, has
narrated how the Divisional Police Officer in charge
of Onikan Police Station, SP Adekunle Awe, allegedly
rapéd her, extorted and threatened her life in the
station.

The victim said the incident occurred on April 15,
2014. She explained that on April 14 she was arrested
by the police for “spurious” reasons. In her words:

“I work at an eatery on Keffi Street, Obalende, as a
cook. The eatery also has a tailor’s shop in the
compound and it belongs to the same person.

There is also a quarters where we all live in the
compound.

“Most of the workers are from Cotonou, Benin
Republic. On Monday, a popular customer, known
as Friday, came to eat. He later left, but some
moments later, he returned to say he could not get
a bus home . Friday had been making advances at
me, but we were not a couple. I allowed him to
sleep over.”

According to what Akinwunmi told Punch, at 1am,
her boss, who discovered that someone was sleeping
over, called the police to arrest her and the customer,
Friday. She said two other people, who slept over at
the tailors’ quarters were also rounded up.

She said, “My madam called policemen to arrest all of
us. I had only a pair of shorts, a shirt and a wrapper
on. I had N11,000 in my pocket and my phone was
not with me. On getting to the station, I got the
phone of a policewoman and used it to call one of the
tailors to come and help.

“In the morning of Tuesday, two tailors, Ben and
Matthias, arrived to bail out their friends, but they
were also arrested, bringing our total number to six.”

The victim said a few hours later, she felt sticky and
pleaded with a policewoman on duty to allow her
have a bath. She said she could not use the shower
because it was too filthy, adding that on her way out,
she met the DPO for the first time.

“I met the DPO along the corridor. He asked me what
happened and I explained everything to him. Around
10pm on Tuesday, the DPO sent a policeman to call
Friday and I. I was wearing boxers and a top. I stayed
at the counter and Friday went in to see the DPO. A
few minutes later, Friday came out and the DPO
called me in.

“The DPO said he could make sure that I spent the
rest of my life in jail, but I begged him. He then came
close to me and started rubbing his hands all over my
body but I rejected his advances.

“He said my boss had told him that he could do
whatever he wanted to do with me. He said since I
was from Benin Republic, if he killed me, nothing
would happen.

“He said he would also make sure that the remaining
five suspects would be sent to prison. At this point,
the DPO had already taken off his clothes. Since I was
afraid for my life, I allowed the DPO to have his way.
“I begged him to use a condom, but he refused. He
pushed me to a smaller room in his office and put me
on the bed and had séx with me . Immediately after he
had finished, he told me to shower in a bathroom
inside his office.”

Akinwunmi, a mother of two, said that the DPO
promised to ensure that she was released the next
morning and ordered a policeman to take her back
into the cell. She said when she returned to the cell,
she cried through the night. She said the following
morning, she told some female police officers about
the incident.

She said when her people came to bail her from the
station, the DPO asked one Inspector Taiwo to bring
her to his office.

“The DPO gave me his telephone number and asked
for mine, but I didn’t give it to him. He then said I
could leave and promised that no one would collect
bail money from us . However, on getting to the
counter, the policemen on duty collected N30,000
from us,” she said.

On leaving the police station, the woman immediately
went to the Lagos Island Maternity Clinic to do a test.

A copy of the medical report, signed by Dr. R. A.
Seriki stated:

“A complaint of séxual assault: General clinical
condition satisfactory; no laceration, no bruises, no
areas of hyperemia, negative for HIV 1 and 2,
pregnancy negative. Has been placed on PEP and
emergency contraception.”

The matter was said to have been reported at Area A
Police Command, Lion Building, after which the Area
Commander, ACP Imohimi Edgal, invited the victim
for interrogation.

Now the matter had been transferred to the office of
the Commissioner of Police.

Human rights activists have decided to intervene in
the DPO's show of shame. The Director, Project Alert
on Violence Against Women, Dr. Josephine Effah-
Chukwumah, urged the police to handle the matter
seriously.

She said, “The fact that there were no bruises does
not mean that molest did not occur. The moment there
is a direct threat to life on the condition of séx, the
offence is rapé. It is unacceptable.”

Health / Re: How Do I Stop Mastubating? by Clementor(m): 9:46pm
#iRISEABOVEHATE:
Trust me ... First thing you need to do is search deep into your heart ... If you really wanna stop ... You will. Be decisive , Be determined that's all you need do . If you are been given practical steps am afraid you'll still fall back to it . Am so sure . Maybe you should try this , once you feel the urge , try jogging around for like 30 minutes and some sort of exercise and maybe you should also pray about it . Remember , putting a stop to this is like putting a stop to lying ... If you can stop lying definitely you'll stop self-servicing.
i'll put ur advice to test.

Culture / Re: Hausa Folk Legend Help! by babbangoni: 9:46pm
Fulaman198:

Malam Babban goni Indian languages are Indoeuropean and have no relation to Hausa whatsoever.

Hausa are Chadic Like the Ngas and Tera.

In some indian languages we can find words like that:
Masala= problem
Martaba= prestige
Ma-ta= mother
Baba= father
Maharaja= Maidaraja= his Majesty
Sarki (cambodia and Nepal)= king Priest
Etc.
It was an indian officer working in Niger two years ago who informed us of many similarities btw hausa and some indian language. He brought a hausa janguage researcher to give a conference on this issue in his town.

TV/Movies / Re: Sex, Unclothedness And Half Of A Yellow Sun by LondonCool(m): 9:46pm
homesteady:
hmm! what did you not like about the film?

Most of the characters were not allowed to develop fully in the movie. It's wasn't easy depicting the novel in a 2 hour movie.

A mini-series would have been a better option.

I gave it a 6.5 rating out of 10 which is quite high.

The acting was good. The 1960's props used was quite good. The use of lots of extra's in various scenes was quite good, unlike the ones in Nigerian films that usually stare into the camera and bystanders peeping along the streets.

The use of acoustic sound effects during the bombing scenes was quite scary (especially in cinema's with large Dolby theatre speakers ).

The special effects of the bomb explosions was quite innovative, the gun shooting scene of Igbo passengers at the airport during the Coup was well acted and seemed real ( the actors didn't fall down in instalments/ slow motion like in normal Nollywood films).

It would be useful to read the book first before watching the movie so that you can moderate your expectations when watching the movie.

There were only 2 scenes where Thandie exposed her bosom, when she was coming out of the bath and during a short sex scene ( side bosom only). There's nothing much in those scenes that is worth the unclad/ sex scenes hype to be honest
