100 days after, Chibok girls still in Shekau’s captivity

The world continues to await the safe return of the over 200 pupils of Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, 100 days after they were kidnapped by the violent Islamic sect, Boko Haram.100 days after, Chibok girls still in Shekau’s captivity.On April 15, 2014, Nigerians and, indeed, the rest of the world, woke up in the morning to the heart-breaking news of the kidnap of over 200 pupils of the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, a predominantly Christian community in Borno State. Eye witness accounts said the kidnappers, who were not immediately suspected to be members of the murderous Islamic sect known as Boko Haram, had arrived in the premises of the school in trucks and pretended to be on a mission to protect the girls. Reports claimed that many of the pupils were writing the Senior Secondary Certificate Examination when the intruders came and most of them were taken away into the Sambisa forest – now notorious for providing shelter to Boko Haram and other unspecified insurgents. Although some of the pupils managed to escape and fled into the bush, the news of the kidnap of the unlucky girls – some of who are said to be aged between 16 and 18 years – clearly shook the nation. To the international community, it signalled the birth of a disturbing dimension in the activities of terrorists and their sponsors, especially in North Eastern Nigeria. Earlier in February, about 59 male pupils of the Federal Government College, Buni-Yadi, in neighbouring Yobe State were killed when gunmen believed to be members of Boko Haram attacked the institution. The school was completely burnt during the attack, bringing the total number of secondary schools destroyed by the insurgents to about 200 since the Islamic sect began to target schools in its deadly campaign against modern civilisation. About three days after the incident, the Nigerian military reportedly released a statement claiming that more than 100 of the kidnapped girls had been freed. But the Army retracted the statement as, almost immediately, the parents of the kidnapped girls said 234 pupils were missing. Additional statements credited to security agents said that about 53 pupils had escaped the kidnappers. But by May 2, 2014, it was unclear how many girls were actually taken away in the attack. While some reports put the actual figure at 276, others claimed the number was 329.

Why do we bite our nails?

A BBC WORKER EXPLAINS. What do ex-British prime ministers Gordon Brown, Jackie Onassis, Britney Spears and I all have in common? We all are (or were) nail biters. It's not a habit I'm proud of. It's pretty disgusting for other people to watch, ruins the appearance of my hands, is probably unhygienic and sometimes hurts if I take it too far. I've tried to quit many times, but have never managed to keep it up. Lately I've been wondering what makes someone an inveterate nail-biter like me. Are we weaker willed? More neurotic? Hungrier? Perhaps, somewhere in the annals of psychological research there could be an answer to my question, and maybe even hints about how to cure myself of this unsavoury habit. My first dip into the literature shows up the medical name for excessive nail biting: 'onychophagia'. Psychiatrists classify it as an impulse control problem, alongside things like obsessive compulsive disorder. But this is for extreme cases, where psychiatric help is beneficial, as with other excessive grooming habits like skin picking or hair pulling. I'm not at that stage, falling instead among the majority of nail biters who carry on the habit without serious side effects. Up to 45% of teenagersbite their nails, for example; teenagers may be a handful but you wouldn't argue that nearly half of them need medical intervention. I want to understand the 'subclinical' side of the phenomenon – nail biting that isn't a major problem, but still enough of an issue for me to want to be rid of it.

Google launches new venture fund for European start-ups

Ambitious European tech entrepreneurs can bid for a slice of Google's $100m Google is launching a venture capital fund to invest in promising European technology companies. The $100m (£58m) fund will "invest in the best ideas from the best European entrepreneurs", according to Bill Maris, managing partner at Google Ventures, overseeing the project. "We believe Europe's start-up scene has enormous potential." The new operation will be based near London's Silicon Roundabout start-up district. But Google is open to further geographic expansion in the future. "We've seen compelling new companies emerge from places like London, Paris, Berlin, the Nordic region and beyond - SoundCloud, Spotify, Supercell and many others," Mr Maris writes in a blog to announce the new fund. Financial return The new fund will be an arm of the existing US-based fund, Google Ventures, and will be run by a team which includes angel investor Peter Read, Code.org UK head Avid Larizadeh and entrepreneur Tom Hulme. Eze Vidra, who set up the "Google Campus" in London, an incubator for technology enterprises, is also a partner. MG Siegler, the American venture capitalist, will liaise between the new fund and Google's original US-based fund.

FIFA bans Nigeria from international football

FIFA has suspended Nigeria from international football citing government interference in the running of its national federation. The emergency committee of the world governing body said the blanket ban would come into to place with "immediate effect" which means no Nigerian team, including club sides, can play in regional, continental or international competitions. In the wake of Nigeria's exit to France at the last 16 of the World Cup, the high court of the West African country ruled that its federation would cease to run the national team, handing over the role to a government civil servant. This is in breach of a FIFA rules that obliges member associations to manage their own affairs "independently and with no influence from third parties," it said in a statement. Stephen Keshi, the coach of the African champions, resigned the day after the 2-0 defeat, after leading the Super Eagles out of the group stages of the World Cup for the first time since 1998.

New wave of Israeli airstrikes hammers Gaza

A new wave of Israeli airstrikes battered areas of Gaza early Thursday, continuing the deadly onslaught aimed at stopping militant rocket fire into Israel. The days-long aerial bombardment of Gaza has killed 81 Palestinians, including women and children, and injured more than 500 since it began Monday, Palestinian officials said. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the offensive would be expanded and continue "until the firing at our communities stops and quiet is restored." But there was no sign that Hamas and other militant groups in Gaza were backing down as rockets continued to streak over the border into southern Israel. No Israelis have been killed so far in the rocket attacks.

ABOUT CNN










The Cable News Network (CNN) is an American basic cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of Time Warner. The 24-hour cable news channel was founded in 1980 by American media proprietor Ted Turner. Upon its launch, CNN was the first channel to provide 24-hour television news coverage, and the first all-news television channel in the United States.
While the news channel has numerous affiliates, CNN primarily broadcasts from its headquarters at the CNN Center in Atlanta, the Time Warner Center in New York City, and studios in Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles. CNN is sometimes referred to as CNN/U.S. to distinguish the American channel from its international counterpart, CNN International. As of August 2010, CNN is available in over 100 million U.S. households. Broadcast coverage extends to over 890,000 American hotel rooms, and the U.S. channel is also carried on cable and satellite in Canada. Globally, CNN programming airs through CNN International, which can be seen by viewers in over 212 countries and territories.
As of August 2013, approximately 98,496,000 American households (86% of cable, satellite and telco customers) receive CNN.
The Cable News Network was launched at 5:00 p.m. ET on June 1, 1980. After an introduction by Ted Turner, the husband and wife team of David Walker and Lois Hart anchored the channel's first newscast. Burt Reinhardt, the then executive vice president of CNN, hired most of CNN's first 200 employees, including the network's first news anchor, Bernard Shaw.
Since its debut, CNN has expanded its reach to a number of cable and satellite television providers, several websites, and specialized closed-circuit channels (such as CNN Airport Network). The company has 36 bureaus (10 domestic, 26 international), more than 900 affiliated local stations, and several regional and foreign-language networks around the world. The channel's success made a bona-fide mogul of founder Ted Turner and set the stage for the Time Warner conglomerate's eventual acquisition of Turner Broadcasting System in 1996.
A companion channel, CNN2, was launched on January 1, 1982 and featured a continuous 24-hour cycle of 30-minute news broadcasts. The channel, which later became known as "CNN Headline News" and then simply "HLN", eventually focused on live news coverage supplemented by personality-based programs during the evening and primetime hours.
