Woman eats a roll of toilet paper daily.

Woman eats a roll of toilet paper daily.

Mom-of-five Jade Sylvester has developed an unusual habit — sheet roll of  toilet paper every day. Which, according to a medical expert, is a disorder that has roots in mental health issues.

The 25-year-old from from Lincolnshire, England, has been downing the bathroom tissue on a daily basis since she first developed the craving while pregnant with her now-15-month-old Jaxon. Now, she eats one roll per day. “I like the feeling of the texture in my mouth, rather than the taste,” Sylvester told the U.K. paper Mirror Online. “I like the dryness.”

The idea to eat toilet paper randomly occurred to Sylvester one day while using the bathroom. “While I was pregnant I went to the loo and looked at the toilet roll and thought ‘I have to eat that’ — I know it sounds silly,” Sylvester told the paper. “Today I try and hold off going to the bathroom because I know if I go I will eat the paper. I usually eat around eight pieces per visit – sometimes I go to the bathroom just to get some toilet roll. It does fill me up quite a bit. At first I used to eat a couple of squares at a time, but I keep eating more and more.”

Double bombing rocks Jos.

At least 31 people were killed in a double bombing in the Nigerian city of Jos on Thursday, while a 13-year-old girl in an explosives vest was arrested in the northern city of Kano.

The blasts in Jos happened at a makeshift market near the Terminus bus station, which had been set up after a twin car bomb attack in May that left at least 118 people dead.

Mohammed Abdulsalam, coordinator for the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) in the city, said the scene of the attack was a densely populated area.

“The bodies recovered so far are 31 but rescue workers are at the scene and the figures may change,” added Pam Ayuba, spokesman for the Plateau state governor Jonah Jang.

The city, which is the capital of Plateau, lies in Nigeria’s “Middle Belt” where the mainly Muslim north meets the mostly Christian south.

It has been targeted by Boko Haram Islamists in the past but is also a hotbed of ethnic and sectarian tensions that frequently boil over into deadly violence.

Meet the world’s highest-paid musician

Meet the world’s highest-paid musician

Dr. Dre took home $620 million this year before taxes, thanks largely to the sale of Beats, the company he cofounded, to Apple for $3 billion. This made him the world’s top-earning musician of 2014. More remarkably, that number also marks the largest single-year haul of any musician, ever. Dr. Dre’s payday gives him the widest margin in history between the first and second spots on our top-earning musicians list—half a billion dollars separate him from the No. 2 earner, Beyoncé, who pulled in $115 million. Her most lucrative year yet comes courtesy of her Mrs. Carter Show tour, a surprise album and endorsements with the likes of Pepsi and H&M.

Wiring jaw to lose weight

Wiring jaw to lose weight

If you’re considering different options for fighting a weight problem, one of the more innovative and up-and-coming procedures is jaw wiring. Jaw wiring has been used to help aid those with broken jaws for many years, but only recently has the background of this procedure been expanded to include weight loss, as a cure to help stint compulsive and overeating. This strategy is still considered experimental by some, but early results have been positive.

Jaw Wiring – Are You a Candidate?

The best candidates for jaw wiring include those people who are otherwise healthy and have a BMI (body mass index) between 29 and 40. For those with a BMI over 40, other weight loss options would most likely be a better fit. Most candidates for jaw wiring also have some sort of compulsive eating disorder, and jaw wiring is available for those who simply can not prevent themselves from overeating.In addition, candidates who do not have any serious or underlying psychological condition that would hamper that person’s ability to stick with the program. For more specific information as it relates to your situation, you should contact a board certifed doctor or surgeon.

Jaw Wiring Procedures & Risk

The risk involved with jaw wiring is extremely limited. For instance, one example of uncertainty and risk includes any situation where the patient may vomit. This is when the wires may become a choking hazard.

Where Jaw Wiring Surgery is Performed

The answer to the question of where surgery is performed is an interesting one, as it can be done either at the doctor’s office or at a dental clinic that specializes in such procedures.

Anesthesia for Jaw Wiring

As this is a common dental and corrective procedure, no anesthesia is necessary for jaw wiring. You will most likely be given a form of local anesthesia that will numb the affected area.

Planning for Jaw Wiring Surgery

Although jaw wiring is not considered to be surgery in the classic sense, you still need to partake in planning for surgery so that the process is completed smoothly. For instance, you’ll need to be ready for the temporary lifestyle changes and maintenance that is involved with managing the wires in your mouth, and your doctor will help you do so.

Preparing for Jaw Wiring Surgery

Preparing for surgery involves both physical and psychological preparedness. You need to remember that as the result of this procedure, you will not be able to eat solid food while your mouth is wired shut. Specifically, you’ll need to be prepared to completely change your diet.

How Jaw Wiring Surgery is Performed

How surgery is performed involves several uniform steps. Basically, your jaw will be wired shut as if you have broken it, and the cycle will involve 28 days of wiring and four days without the wiring.

Recovery From a Jaw Wiring Procedure

Post-op considerations are detailed in nature. Your jaw wiring program will generally last for six months, and afterwards you’ll need to maintain a regular schedule of counseling to make sure that your harmful eating habits are not repeated.

Three policemen get 2 years in jail for negligence

According to Vanguard online,

Three policemen were, yesterday, sentenced to two years imprisonment by Magistrate A. Demi-Ajayi of an Ebute-Metta Magistrate’s Court, sitting at Oyingbo, Lagos, over negligence, which resulted in the stealing of their AK-47.

The convicts are Sergeant Felix Okwa, 47; Corporal Ogu Romanus, 46, and Constable Sunday Okoh, 34.

Apart from being jailed for two years, they will also serve a six-month community service after completing their jail term.

The three cops who were attached to Ishashi Police Division of Lagos State Police Command, were said to be on patrol on December 12 at 11.30p.m., when they received a call from an unknown guest, named Kezzy, who invited them for supper at Regional Hotel, also in Ishashi, claiming he wanted to reward them for a job they did for him.

The unknown guest was said to have fed them with food laced with drugs, after which they slept off and their weapons, three AK-47 rifles and 90 live ammunition were stolen.

The hotel manager reported the matter at the Ishashi Police Station after which the unconscious policemen were arrested and later charged to court.

The cops were first arraigned on January 19, 2011, on a two count charge bordering on conspiracy and stealing.

 

These our policemen sef!

These our policemen sef!

A 29-year-old photographer, Ejeh Smith, and his wife, Grace, 26, are in pains and receiving treatment at a Lagos hospital after a police officer, identified as Dada Ogunsanya, allegedly tortured them with his rifle.

Ogunsanya is attached to the Ikoyi Police Division.

The incident happened at the Lekki Roundabout on Wednesday, last week, while the couple was in a taxi en route to their home at Parkview Estate.

PUNCH Metro learnt that the police officer was among a seven-man team, patrolling the area around 10pm.

The police team was said to have stopped the taxi driver and demanded that he opened his boot for a routine check.

The taxi driver, Ndubuisi Iheaka, told our correspondent that after he opened his boot which contained scaffolding belts, the policeman demanded to see his driving licence.

“I was about getting the driving licence when he started flashing his torchlight on my passengers who were sitting at the back.

“The wife told the officer not to flash the torch on them since the inner light of the vehicle was on.

“Because of what she said, the policeman asked them to come down from the cab. This started an argument. The next thing I saw was that the policeman pulled my passenger (Ejeh) by his trousers, and his wife went to plead with him to stop.

“But instead, he slapped her and punched her husband. He was wearing a ring, which inflicted a deep cut on Ejeh’s face. After that, he used the butt of his gun to hit him in his eye and face. He also dragged his wife on the road.”

Grace said the policeman, apart from slapping her, stepped on her tummy.

“If I was pregnant that night, I would have lost my pregnancy. I was only trying to pet him to leave my husband since he did not have business with us. I told him to face the cab driver and leave us alone. “The other policemen were just looking at him while he dragged me on the ground. A man riding a tricycle at the time was the one who rescued me. He said the policemen must call their Divisional Police Officer or else he would not leave the scene,” she said.

The Ikoyi DPO, Mrs. Aisha Haruna, was said to have arrived at the scene.

Ejeh claimed he could barely see because blood was dripping from his eyes, while his wife was vomiting blood. He added that the DPO ordered that they be taken to the station to make statements.

He said, “But we told her that we needed to first treat ourselves before we could make statements. That was when we were given forms and referred to the Falomo Police Hospital. We paid for the treatment and we also went to the eye clinic for treatment.”

His wife claimed that the DPO seized her phone and asked an inspector at the station to delete all the pictures and video recording she did of the incident.

“Even my personal data were deleted. And when I asked the DPO why she did that, she said we deserved the treatment we got. She said she would have locked us up in the cell if not for our injuries. She said we did not know how to talk,” she added.

The family lawyer of the victims, Mr. Sunday Agbinya, said his office would write a petition to the Inspector General of Police to redress the wrong done to his clients.

“This is a case of assault occasioning harm and we intend to challenge it. We will send a petition to the IG. We want the police to conduct a full investigation into this,” he said.

The legal officer of a non-governmental organisation, Project Alert on Violence Against Women, Mr. Ben Odeh, said the police officer responsible for the act should be disciplined for torturing the couple.

He said, “It is a breach of their constitutional rights. The policeman went too far.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Kenneth Nwosu, confirmed the incident.

He said, “Yes, the incident happened in the Ikoyi division.Inquiries are on as well as disciplinary procedures.”

The fantasy bras…cost as high as $12.5 million!

Victoria’s Secret is not just known for its stylish line of undergarments and accessories but for their unusual line of jeweled items known as the Fantasy Bra collection. Fantasy Bras have made use of some of the finest materials on this planet, including diamonds, color diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and tanzanite, to create the world’s most luxurious bras. At first these bras were just advertised in the catalogue, but were later added to the fashion shows as the centerfold. These fascinating bras are available for purchase, but if they are not sold after a year, they are taken apart. So far only two Fantasy Bras have been sold; the Heavenly “70” from 2004 and the Floral Fantasy Bra from 2012.

So Chris Brown wants Karrueche back? Na wa o!

So Chris Brown wants Karrueche back? Na wa o!

Chris Brown apologized on late Sunday night after accusing his on-off girlfriend Karrueche Tran of sleeping with the rapper Drake.

But the contrite message, posted to his Instagram, may have come too late as the couple appear to have split last week.

And on Monday, just hours after Brown’s groveling apology, the 26-year-old model was spotted soaking up the sun on Miami Beach without an apparent care in the world.

 

Meanwhile, Chris wrote, summing up his feelings in a grovelling apology on his Instagram account: ‘I just want baby girl to know I apologise.’

Before his apology, Chris had ranted on a different Instagram post about Karrueche, ‘I was locked up for damn near 4 months and only got 1 visit from you while u was hosting parties and taking secret trips to Toronto, going on dates with Drake!

Karrueche then retaliated with: ‘I refuse to be repeatedly mistreated by someone that claims to love me. That’s not love. And if that’s what you define as love then I don’t want it.’
