Chain Smoker Who Lost Half His Tongue To Cancer Reveals He Still Takes 5 Cigarettes A Day... Photos

A smoker who lost half his tongue to mouth and throat cancer has revealed that he still smokes five cigarettes a day. Ex- soldier James Upfield, 46, died twice during treatment - once on the operating table and once when his "lungs exploded".
His illness has left him unable to forced to liquidise his food as his mouth produces no saliva.

The former Royal Pioneer Corps soldier from Nottingham also developed motor neurone disease – a rare condition that progressively damages part of the nervous system - following radiotherapy.

Furthermore his face has been misshapen by surgery to cut out his tumour - and he has lost all his teeth due to radiation and has trouble speaking.

But James - who has been smoking since he was 13 - insists he is too addicted to ditch the deadly habit and simply CANNOT quit.

Amazingly he is set to run the London Marathon in aid of Scope - despite still being a smoker.

Fear In Anambra Community As Businessman Imports Shrine Over N10m Debt...

Fear has gripped the people of Umuechefu Obiuno quarters in Igboukwu, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, over the presence of a shrine imported from a community in Anambra East Local Government Area by a businessman over a N10 million debt. It was gathered that residents of the community, who were told of the efficacy of the shrine, were fleeing the community in droves.
It was gathered that the shrine was brought by a five-man team sent by the chief priest, and planted in the family compound of two siblings, the debtors, at the instance of the businessman-creditor.

Vanguard also gathered that the said businessman had approached the shrine to kill the debtors, their families and others who benefit from the two brothers. Prior to the planting of the shrine, the chief priest was said to have invited the siblings to the shrine in Anambra East with N5,000 delivery service cost and a carton of beer, to defend themselves on the said N10 million debt allegation.

However, the brothers were said to have ignored the invitation, which prompted the planting of the shrine in their family compound since March 18. Consequently, residents were said to have started fleeing in droves, prompting the brothers to petition the state’s Commissioner of Police, Mr. Sam Okaula, through their counsel.

They pleaded that the man that took them to the shrine, the chief priest and his errand boys, who brought the shrine to Igboukwu, be arrested and prosecuted for ‘trial by ordeal.’

Their counsel described the action as mockery to the family, because as their compound had become a pilgrimage destination, where people troop in to have a glimpse of the shrine.

Well Preserved Body Of Man Who Was Buried 500 Years Ago Discovered In China. Graphic Photos

Two well preserved bodies were discovered in an ancient tomb by a construction team in Taikang county, central China’s Henan Province last Sunday. The male body is clearly dressed in full civil servant robes, while his hair is still clear to see.
Four tombstones indicated the man's name was Gu Pu, and that he was buried 500 years ago during the Ming Dynasty. Gu Pu was the grandson of Gu Zuo – a senior official at the imperial Ming court.

But the construction team did not inform local authorities until 9 p.m. that evening. Due to their delay in reporting the archaeological discovery, the tomb was reportedly severely damaged, and artifacts were taken by passers-by.

The deputy officer of the local government's culture department, surnamed Ge, confirmed a tomb was found in the county. He denied online rumors that local residents had been able to freely plunder the tomb and grab burial objects without restriction.
He also claimed the objects buried in the tomb were not valuable, as corruption and bribery were strictly forbidden during the Ming Dynasty. Even high-level civil servants would not have been buried with anything of real value when they died, according to Ge.

However, the official statement was criticized by Wang Deheng, a researcher at the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He indicated that it was very rare to see such a well preserved body complete with robes, and suggested the discovery was, in terms of archaeology, very valuable.
Gu’s descendants were informed several hours after the tomb was uncovered, and they could not be certain if any objects belonging to the family had been left in the tomb. Gu Xin, one of the family members, was very disappointed at the tomb being terribly destroyed.

Photos/Video Of Alleged Drunk Policeman With Gun Which Has Gone Viral...

A video of an alleged drunk policeman in Zambia has viral gone viral online. In the video footage posted online, a man wearing a police uniform appears to be intoxicated. The police officer is seen aiming his weapon at a party member of parliament Garry Nkombo and demanding to search his car.
The police man argued at length with the woman who was taking the video.

Meanwhile, Zambia Police Service Spokesperson Mrs Esther Mwaata Katongo says, “it is true that the officer looked drunk. However, what he was saying that an officer can search any motor vehicle or vessel he or she suspects is correct. The other advice is that you don’t confront a person who has a fire arm like that. It is dangerous.”

Meet The Pretty Teenage Daughter Of The Terrorist Who Killed 4 In London Attack. Photos

London terrorist Khalid Masood's teenage daughter stood up to his bullying and refused to convert to Islam - attending her school prom in a revealing black dress. Teegan, 18, and her mother rejected her radicalised father's orders after he demanded both of his daughters become Muslims and wear burqas, family friends have claimed.
Her older sister, Andi, 24, is said to have converted to Islam like her father, donned a full-face veil and moved to Luton with him and his new partner while he was based there from 2009 to 2011.

Masood, 52, was living in Birmingham when he killed four people in a car and knife attack in Westminster before being shot dead on the grounds of the Houses of Parliament.

The girls' mother and Masood's former partner, Jane Harvey, fought to prevent Teegan from following her father and older sister, the Sun reported.
Luke Lawrence, 23, who went to school with Andi when she and her mother and sister lived in Northiam, East Sussex, said: “Jane was totally against the idea and wanted Teegan to remain with her. "But Andi was older and could be very headstrong, so she just went off and did it anyway."

Ms Harvey wanted her daughter to stay at home with her and continue her studies.

One of Ms Harvey's friends claimed Andi is living in Birmingham, wears a full-face veil and may have changed her name to an Arabic one.

Born Adrian Russell Ajao, he converted to Islam while in prison in 2003 following an alleged knife attack and changed his name to Khalid Masood from Adrian Elms - two of his many aliases.

Outrage As US Airlines Bars Girls In Leggings. See Why

United Airlines incurred social media outrage after barring two teenage girls wearing leggings from boarding its flight from Denver in Colorado to Minneapolis on Sunday. Officials said the teenagers did not meet a dress code for special pass travelers, stirring a furore on social media.
The two girls, who were traveling with a companion, would not have been turned away for wearing leggings had they been paying customers, United spokesman Jonathan Guerin said as the airline responded to the backlash.

“(The two girls) were instructed that they couldn’t board until they corrected their outfit. They were fine with it and completely understood,” Guerin said, adding that all three passengers missed the flight. He did not know if they had boarded a later plane or made alternate travel arrangements.

Although the three passengers did not complain about their treatment, another traveller , Shannon Watts, who overheard the discussion touched off a firestorm on social media with a series of tweets describing a policy she suggested was unfairly targeting women and girls.

“This behavior is sexist and sexualizes young girls,” Watts said on Twitter. “Not to mention that the families were mortified and inconvenienced.”

United pass travellers are typically company employees or their friends or family members.

Watts’ tweets and United’s defense of it touched a raw nerve for many women and girls who have made leggings a staple in their wardrobes.

The popularity of leggings has sparked criticism that they are inappropriate attire under certain circumstances. Some schools have barred girls from wearing them to class.

Social media lit up with outrage against the policy and the airline for its response to the initial outcry. Celebrities chimed in with humorous protests.

“I have flown united before with literally no pants on. Just a top as a dress. Next time I will wear only jeans and a top,” model Chrissy Teigen tweeted.

United later put out a statement titled: “To our customers … Your leggings are welcome!” that explained the policy for passholders in greater detail.

That policy also bars midriff-baring tops, attire that reveals undergarments or is designated as sleepwear or swimwear, mini-skirts, shorts that fall less than three inches above the knee or dirty or torn clothing.

Guerin conceded that the airline, in its initial response to the flap, could have done a better job of explaining the situation and countering apparently inaccurate information about the incident that appeared on Twitter.

“We’ll definitely take something away from today, but we’ll continue to engage with our customers (on social media),” he said.

Nigerian Woman Runs World Fastest 2017 Time In 100m Hurdles....

Nigerian hurdler, Tobi Amusan, now has the fastest 100m hurdle time (12.63) in the world for 2017 following her awesome race on Saturday. The 2016 Rio Olympics semi-finalist clocked a 12.63 seconds lifetime and 2017 world leading 100m hurdles best on Saturday afternoon at the University of Texas in El Paso (UTEP) Springtime meet held at the school ground, the Kidd Field.
The time which broke a 34-year-old UTEP record also shot the petite sprint hurdler up as the second fastest Nigerian of all-time in the event behind African and Nigerian record holder, Gloria Alozie (12.44).

The Nigerian wasn’t surprised she ran that fast.

“I didn’t have any idea,” Amusan was quoted as saying by the El Paso Times when asked if she knew how fast she had run.

“It felt so good, so easy. I wasn’t surprised, I’ve been working hard ever since I got back from (indoor) nationals. I don’t go into competitions with the idea of running a time. I go into competition trying to execute my race. It showed.”

To put her time in perspective, it would have finished last season tied for the 10th best time in the world and the best in the NCAA.

Amusan’s coach, Lacena Golding-Clarke, was full of praises for the young Nigerian who is looking like a contender at the World Championships later this year.

“I’m so, so happy for her. I was thinking maybe a sub-13, maybe a 12.90 we can work with, but to run 12.63 as a sophomore – that’s better than my (personal record). I ran pro for 11 years and my best was 12.65. And she’s just a sophomore,” the excited coach told the El Paso Times.

Giant Sink Hole Nearly Swallows Bus Carrying 21 Passengers On A Busy Road. Photos

A giant sinkhole left by a sudden road collapse in China's Nanning nearly swallowed a bus carrying 21 passengers on Friday. Fortunately no one was hurt. A heart-stopping footage posted online shows the moment a huge sink hole appears in the middle of a busy main road.
The clip shows vehicles pass by just seconds before the road opens up.

The bus carrying 21 passengers travels across the weakened section of road just as it begins to dip, with the vehicle bumping its way out of the 'danger zone'. Another car just manages to move into the adjacent lane, clearly noticing the road collapsing before their eyes.

The footage was captured in Nanning Guangxi, China, and showed traffic come to a halt before the entire section of road caves in.

Nobody was injured and concrete was later poured into the road gap.

You Won’t Win African Player Of The Year Without Super Eagles – NFF Warns Victor Moses...

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has told Chelsea wingback, Victor Moses, to be more committed to the national team or miss out on winning the African Footballer of the Year award. Moses reported to the team’s camp ahead of the friendly against Senegal, but returned to the Premier League club, after claiming he was carrying a knock.
It is understood that coach Gernot Rohr was visibly angry with the player , who had previously pulled out....

In an interview with The Guardian, NFF President Amaju Pinnick, said: “Moses needs to understand that with his current performance with Chelsea, he stands a chance of becoming the next African player of the year, especially if his club should win the EPL title.

“But he needs to play regularly for the national team to make such dream come true. To be honest, Moses is one of the best African players at the moment, but as I said, he needs the Super Eagles.”

Speaking further, Pinnick, who is expected to join the Super Eagles camp in London, revealed he had a chat with Moses yesterday “and during our conversation, Moses said that he actually wanted to play in the friendly against Senegal but for the injury. He is coming to see me tomorrow (today) when I arrive in London.”

Moses was expected to feature in the second friendly against Burkina Faso, which has now been called off.
