Meet Larue Drummond - The Woman With The 14-Inch Long Nails

Posted in: , ,

Larue Drummond, 54-year-old mother of four, used to be a chronic nail biter as a child, biting her nails to her cuticles until they bled. But according to Larue all that changed when she met a woman at the super market with long nails, who told her, 'when you look after your nails, they will look after you.'

She stopped biting her nails and began to grow them long. Eight years ago, the big fan of nail art decided to stop cutting her nails entirely and has spent not less than $10,000 since then to maintain them.

Some people are very curious about how Ms Drummond manages everyday tasks with her 14-inch talon and she insists she cooks and does other everyday tasks easily. She said:

‘People stop me wherever I go and ask about my nails. I'm always happy to talk about them.
‘The most frequently asked question is how do I go to the bathroom. I tell them, “the same way as you do. If you know of another way, let me know.”’

Posted in: , ,

Gloria is among a handful of survivors of a 2012 Ebola outbreak [23 cases with 17 dead] in the Kibaale district of western Uganda. She has spoken out about what Ebola did to her body, how she beat it, and what it was like return to a community where everyone was afraid of her.

Julia Belluz: How did you come into contact with the Ebola virus?

Gloria Tumwijuke: I was seeing a mother who had had a pregnancy for five months, and she came into the hospital bleeding. The mother was bleeding in the mouth, nose, and ears. They carried her into the hospital on a mattress, and the mattress was covered with blood. She couldn't talk. I was getting her history and found out her relatives had passed away, her husband died. All of her children died.

I started cleaning her, putting all the fluids in her, giving her antibiotics. After removing the fetus, she kept severely bleeding. The baby was already dead. I cared for her for six hours but eventually she died. She had Ebola. I ended up getting Ebola.

Female Teacher Applicants in Brazil Have To Prove They Are Virgin Or Not Sexually Active

Posted in: , , ,

At first I could not quite believe my eyes when I came across this story, but it is real and, as you might expect, it is all over the news.

The education department of the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil’s most populous, requires prospective female teachers to undergo a Pap smear to prove they are free of cancers, or to present a doctor’s certificate verifying that they are not sexually active.

Until recently, it also required women to have a colposcopy, a type of visual examination used to detect disease.

Women’s rights campaign groups have denounced the requirement as a gross violation of women’s privacy and their human dignity. Ana Paula de Oliveira Castro, a public defender of women’s issues in Sao Paulo, said:

Femi Fani Kayode Believes Patrick Sawyer's Travel to Nigeria Was A Bio-Terrorism Conspiracy

Posted in: , ,

Femi Fani-Kayode is pulling no punches when it comes to the issue of Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian-American index case and Ebola victim in Nigeria. The politician and opinionist took to Facebook to share his thoughts on the subject which include conspiracy theories on bioterrorism.

He writes;

I disagree with those who have described Patrick Sawyer as a madman. He was not mad at all but just evil. He was a man that was on a mission. That mission was to spread the ebola virus to Nigeria and to infect and kill as many people as possible with it.

He was an evil man with an evil intention and purpose. Worst still he was not working alone. Some people, and I mean rich, powerful and well-connected people, were working with him. As a matter of fact they sent him on the mission.

Aisha Falode Writes Open Letter To Son's Killers Six Months After His Death

Posted in: , ,

Sports broadcaster Aisha Falode is still seeking justice for her 19-year-old son, Tyler Fray, who fell, or was thrown from the rooftop of a 17-storey building on February 15th 2014 in Dubai [read story].

Since then no one has been charged for the incident by the Dubai police. Aisha Falode writes;

In years gone by, I read detective books and watched Crime series depicting how murderers sleep at night. How they wake up in sweat with nightmarish images of the soul they had taken, and are so filled with dread and guilt of their crime that they spend their night dripping hot, sticky sweat of horror at what they had done.

How they stare at the night, wishing somehow it would never come, I mean, murderers live in such fear wishing they could turn the hands of the clock or go back in time and re-enact the whole scene of their evil deed, so as to reverse the killing of their innocent victim.

Jennifer Lopez proves you can be 45 and still be fit and toned. Before the likes of Beyonce and Nicki Minaj came on the bootilicious scene, I remember that J Lo was the only booty game in town. And she still got it!

The songstress proved that with the cover art for her song – Booty featuring Pitbull.

How do you think this compares with the other cover art that shows some booty, that is Nicki Minaj and her racy “Anaconda" artwork?
