Terror Attacker at Woolwich revealed to be British born with Nigerian background




Yesterday two suspected Islamists attempted to behead and disembowel a Soldier as he left a barracks. The slaughter took place 200 yards from The Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich and close to a primary school at 2.20pm.
The name of one of the suspects was revealed on internet forums and Twitter as Michael Adebolajo. He is a 28-year-old Londoner of Nigerian descent; born in Lambeth, grew up in east London. There are still members of his family living in the area.

“He was a student at Greenwich University, but it is not clear what he was studying there. Already on Facebook there are comments from former pupils say that they went to school with him in east London.”

It was revealed that this men, who are being treated in separate hospitals while under arrest, are most likely to be British citizens of Nigerian descent who have converted to a radical form of Islam.

Ingrid Loyau-Kennett, 48 is a mother-of-two, a cub scout leader from Cornwall who tried to help with first aid on the guy killed thought it was an accident but then then saw the guy was dead.

According to report this was the response from one of the suspects when she interrogated him.
‘what do you want?’ I asked him if he did it and he said yes, and I said: ‘Why?’ And he said because he has killed Muslim people in Muslim countries, he said he was a British solider and I said, really? And he said: ‘I killed him because he killed Muslims and I am fed up with people killing Muslims in Afghanistan, they have nothing to do there.’”
Although, they are not thought to have links to terror groups based in Nigeria, such as the jihadist militant organisation Boko Haram.

tiny energy-storage device

A teenager Esha Khare, an 18-year-old invents a device to charge a cell phone within just 20 Seconds. When asked what inspired her to work on the energy-storage technology,  she said toBC News 'My cellphone battery always dies'.

The  device is a super-capacitor, flexible and tiny, and is able to handle 10,000 recharge cycles, more than normal batteries by a factor of 10. Is this this the end of waiting for hours waiting for phone batteries to get charged?

Report shows that the teen has attracted the attention of tech giants Google for her potentially revolutionary invention and have been in contact with Khare to explore how she plans to change the makeup of cell phone battery life.


This device won her $50,000 from the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, which took place in Phoenix this week as Intel Foundation Young Scientist Award of $50,000 for the invention of a tiny energy-storage device.

Michelle Williams - Jesus is coming back soon and I am doing my part

‘Jesus Is Coming Back And I’m Doing My Part ‘

Michelle Williams says the Super Bowl XVLII was the last time you’ll see ‘em -  Destiny’s Child on stage together.
“As far as Destiny’s Child is concerned I think you’ve seen the last of us for a long time when we did the Super Bowl,” she explained.
On her  podcast with BCCN1′s Daniel Whyte II she said of her faith in Jesus Christ.

In the  interview, she said of her faith in Jesus Christ, “[For some people it's easy to get caught up in the fame], but to me, it’s easier not to because of my background and my foundation of where I grew up. I don’t forget the teachings that I’ve had, and I keep my Bible with me. I read my Bible every day, and I’m constantly in prayer. And I listen to gospel music, so that’s what’s keeping me focused and grounded.” She went on to say, “[Despite some criticism that I have received for doing both secular and Gospel music,] I believe that I am doing my part to be a witness for Jesus Christ. Some people will do gospel when their career fails, but I chose to do it at the height of the popularity of Destiny’s Child. And I didn’t want to do it because it was a fad. I wanted to do it because it’s in me. It’s in my heart. God places people in different parts (areas) for different reasons. We know Jesus is coming back soon and I am doing my part to make sure that people know about him as well.”

American Idol Set to fire! Judges

American Idol season 12 judges

American Idol Judges Mariah Carey, Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban are to be dropped as American Idol  pushes the reset button on their judging panel.

Reports says, New judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban won't be back next season which may include original judge Randy Jackson'.

See Randy's statement...
Yo! Yo! Yo! To put all of the speculation to the rest, after 12 years of judging on ‘American Idol’ I have decided it is time to leave after this season.”
I am very proud of how we forever changed television and the music industry. It’s been a life changing opportunity but I am looking forward to focusing on my company Dream Merchant 21 and other business ventures.
 According to NEW YORK POST. Read below.
"All four are gone," a show insider said. "They feel they've lost their core audience and they want it back."

Viewership for Fox's genre-defining singing competition show have been in steady decline and the show's ratings are already down 22 percent this season with the show hitting a record low last week when it attracted just 11 million viewers. At it's peak in 2007, the show was pulling in 30 million viewers a week.

The first of the four judges to go will definitely be Mariah Carey, who is making a reported $18M for the current season of "Idol," according to E! Online.

The fate of the other three judges is less certain as Fox will only make decisions based on who they can get to replace them.
