Ondo mystery disease: FG, WHO confirm methanol as cause of disease

The Federal Ministry of Health and World Health Organization, WHO, say that the consumption of contaminated alcohol (gin) is believed to be responsible for the outbreak of the strange disease that has claimed at least 18 lives in Ondo state. At a joint press conference today, the Minister of State for Health, Mr Fidelis Nwankwo said the disease is not in anyway related to Ebola virus disease as was earlier speculated.
"Preliminary laboratory investigations indicates that the outbreak cannot be attributed to any infectious organism, bacterial or viral. The outbreak is also clearly not due to Ebola virus disease as feared by many at first. Epidemiological findings indicate a strong linkage of the outbreak to a consumption of a local gin that had been contaminated with methanol, a poisonous material.

"Celebs not the Illuminati, they don't have that kind of power'- Kanye West

In an essay he wrote for Paper magazine, the same magazine that helped Kim K break the internet, Kanye West said he's tired of the notion that celebs are controlling society as members of the secret group, The Illuminati. He said celebs don't have that kind of power.
"I heard a comment -- a joke -- about the Tidal press conference being an Illuminati moment. If there was actually an Illuminati, it would be more like the energy companies. Not celebrities that gave their life to music and who are pinpointed as decoys for people who really run the world. I'm tired of people pinpointing musicians as the Illuminati. That's ridiculous. We don't run anything; we're celebrities. We're the face of brands. We have to compromise what we say in lyrics so we don't lose money on a contract. Madonna is in her 50s and gave everything she had to go up on an award show and get choked by her cape. She's judged for who she adopts. F**k all of this sensationalism. We gave you our lives. We gave you our hearts. We gave you our opinions!"

Nigerian Home buyers flood Atlanta Housing Market

Nigerian homebuyers are flooding the Atlanta housing market and paying top dollar. Within the last few years, the state of Georgia’s housing market has successfully attracted international investors especially from China and Australia; however, one company, Lux Property Investment Group (LPIG) is reporting remarkable success in sales to homebuyers from Nigeria since the end of last year, 2014. Could the high US Dollar to Nigerian Naira exchange rate be a reason for the sudden increase?

Atlanta is well known as an epitome of homes of superb architecture. More positive factors are the reason why Nigerians, like other international home buyers are now more interested in exploring Atlanta’s housing market.

The presidential aide shared this on his Facebook page. Read below...
These are very interesting times in our nation. An election has come and gone. A victor has emerged and the loser has conceded.
