#DomesticViolence - Julius Agwu Makes Elevator Fight [Jay Z & Solange, Ray Rice] Parody Video

Posted in: ,

In a campaign against domestic violence from both sides, Nigerian comedian Julius Agwu is telling us the truth using some humor.

In two short clips, he reminds us of the elevator fight between Solange and Jay Z and how bad it looks. There may be little physical damage but it is a terrible blow for a woman to fight her man, or any man and him having to refrain. It is just as bad when the man retaliates and beats up a woman, worse, the physical damage is usually too obvious.

So Julius advices everyone to desist from the violence. I say let's make love not war :)

Check out the video below...

Calling Someone Fat Makes Them Eat More And Less Interested In Losing Weight

Posted in: , , ,

Experts say that being criticised for their weight drives those who are already sensitive about it to comfort eat. Fear of ridicule may also mean they avoid exercise. Researchers from University College London said  public health campaigns should also avoid making people feel bad about their weight.

Lead author Sarah Jackson advises medics to avoid using the word ‘fat’ where possible and replace it with the terms overweight or obese.

The study, published in the journal Obesity, found that those who were victims of ‘fat shaming’ put on just over 2lb on average over the course of the study. They were also six times as likely to become obese.

Posted in: ,

President Jonathan on Thursday declared that by next month, Boko Haram insurgence will reduce drastically. He said this at the 66rh National Executive Committee, NEC of the PDP. Jonathan stressed the fact that insecurity is the ultimate challenge of the country but plans to stop Boko Haram is well in place as he wants to instill his own leadership.

Commiserating with victims of killings in Kaduna and Kano states, the President disclosed that he would be attending the United Nations General Assembly summit on Global Terrorism which all the super powers would attend. He said:

“Nigeria is having an unfair share. Terror is a global problem, and Nigeria situation is going beyond terror.

Shonda Rhimes Slams The New York Times For Calling Her An ‘Angry Black Woman’

Posted in: , ,

The New York Times recently published an article that was supposed to be how Shonda Rhimes has changed the landscape for Black women on TV, but the writer unfortunately veered off course, calling Shonda and her characters, “Angry Black Women”. The article starts as follows;

“When Shonda Rhimes writes her autobiography, it should be called ‘How to Get Away With Being an Angry Black Woman. On Thursday, Ms. Rhimes will introduce ‘How to Get Away With Murder,’ yet another network series from her production company to showcase a powerful, intimidating black woman.”

Titled, “Wrought In Their Creator’s Image.” the article focuses most on Scandal and the new HTGAWM and their stars, Kerry Washington and Viola Davis.

The biggest mistake starting from that title is that Shonda did not create HTGAWM, but rather a white man, Pete Nowalk. Shonda has already taken to Twitter to put the writer, named Alessandra Stanley, in her place.
