The Itsekiri Economic Submit schedule for tomorrow 31st August 2017 with renowned economist Pat Utomi and Mr. Bismarck Jemide Rewane as guest speakers must hold no matter how hard the palace cabal tries to frustrate it. Because Itsekiri nation and her affairs is for all Itsekiris irrespective of class or belonging and not for the palace cabals even in collaboration of the Olu.

Still in the mood of a heavy heart and mourning of my deceased mother, I regret to notify all sons and daughters of Warri kingdom on the diagnosed corruption cancer that has eaten deep into the fibre of Itsekiri nation, that even our last hope (the Olu Ikenwoli ) has been compromised, therefore we are the last hope left if our kingdom must be save. Note; that which is be kept sacred may be where the problem lies. Though I’m suppose to be on a vacation from activism to mourn my lost, but no man can be calm while his roof is on fire.                                                                        Continue reading

The megachurch led by Joel Osteen is receiving people who need shelter and also helping evacuees with supplies such as baby food, formula and other shelter needs, the church announced via Twitter Tuesday morning.

Lakewood Church was under fire after apparently not opening up the church to flood victims. The church disputed online criticism, stating “we are prepared to shelter people once the cities and county shelters reach capacity.”
“Victoria and I care deeply about our fellow Houstonians. Lakewood’s doors are open and we are receiving anyone who needs shelter,” Osteen tweeted Tuesday, referencing his wife who is also Lakewood’s co-pastor.

North Korea fires missile over Japan

The missile fell into waters 1,180 km east of the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, says NHK [File: Reuters]

North Korea fired a ballistic missile from near its capital Pyongyang that flew over Japan before plunging into the northern Pacific Ocean, officials said on Tuesday, an aggressive test-flight over the territory of a close US ally that sends a clear message of defiance as Washington and Seoul conduct war games nearby.

The launch appears to be the first to cross over Japan since 2009.

Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the missile travelled around 2,700km and reached a maximum height of 550km as it flew over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido and landed in the sea.

South Korea’s military said the projectile was launched from the Sunan region near the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, just before 6am on Tuesday (21:00 GMT on Monday).

Japanese public broadcaster NHK reported that the missile flew over the northernmost main island of Hokkaido and broke into three pieces and fell into the waters 1,180km east of Cape Erimo.

The Japanese government’s J-Alert warning system advised people in northern Japan to take precautions, but NHK said there was no sign of damage.

Texas Governor Warns of a Long, Slow Recovery

HOUSTON — As one of the most destructive storms in the nation’s history pummeled southeast Texas for a fourth day, forecasts on Monday called for still more rain, making clear that catastrophic flooding that had turned neighborhoods into lakes was just the start of a disaster that would take years to overcome.

Local, state and federal officials conceded that the scale of the crisis was so vast that they were nowhere near being able to measure it, much less fully address it.

Across a region that is home to millions of people and includes Houston, the nation’s fourth-largest city, no one has a clear idea how many people are missing, how many evacuated, how many hunkered down or were trapped in their waterlogged homes, or how many inundated houses and vehicles are beyond saving.

It is “one of the largest disasters America has ever faced,” Gov. Greg Abbott said, warning against expecting anything resembling recovery any time soon, or a return to the way things were. “We need to recognize it will be a new normal, a new and different normal for this entire region.”

Local officials reported 10 deaths possibly related to the storm, six of them in Harris County, which includes Houston. But the painstaking and heartbreaking work of clearing streets, going door to door, assessing damage — and finding victims — has not yet begun.

Scenes of people and pets being rescued from the roofs and upper floors of houses revived memories of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, when early estimates vastly understated both the material devastation and the death toll, and recovery efforts lasted years.

Sinus infections: Are they contagious?

Image result for sinus
A sinus infection is when the hollow cavities next to the nose become infected.
Sinus infections, also known as sinusitis, can be easily mistaken for the very contagious common cold.

However, just because the symptoms of sinus infections and colds are very similar does not mean that all sinus infections are as contagious as the common cold.

Whether or not a sinus infection is contagious will vary depending on the cause.

What is a sinus infection?

The sinuses are hollow cavities in the cheeks, on either side of the nose, behind the nose, and in the forehead.

These areas are normally filled with air and surrounded by a thin layer of mucus.

A sinus infection occurs when the tissues around these hollow areas swell or get infected by bacteria, fungi, or a virus.

Sebastian Gorka Is Forced Out as White House Adviser, Officials Say

Sebastian Gorka, an outspoken adviser to President Trump and lightning rod for controversy, has been forced out of his position at the White House, two administration officials said on Friday.

One of the officials said that the president’s chief of staff, John F. Kelly, had telegraphed his lack of interest in keeping Mr. Gorka during internal discussions over the last week.

Mr. Gorka, a deputy assistant to the president, had been on vacation for at least the last two weeks, that official said.

The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about personnel issues.

The Federalist, a conservative website, published portions of what it called a resignation letter written by Mr. Gorka. It quoted him as saying that given which “forces” were on the rise in the White House, the best way for him to support the president was from outside it

The White House, seeking to blunt Mr. Gorka’s claim that he had resigned, put out an unattributed statement saying that he no longer works in the administration, but that he did not resign.

Belly fat protein may cause cancer

New research suggests that abdominal fat may actively produce a protein that can lead to cancer.
A new study makes two significant discoveries: firstly, it shows how non-cancerous cells turn into tumorous ones when “helped” by a certain protein, and secondly, it suggests that the source of this protein may lie in the belly fat that so many of us struggle with.

The study, which has been published in the journal Oncogene, was led by Jamie Bernard, an assistant professor in pharmacology and toxicology at Michigan State University in East Lansing. The study’s first author was Debrup Chakraborty, who is a postdoctoral student in Prof. Bernard’s laboratory.

As the authors explain, an established body of research suggests that fat increases cancerrisk. However – and despite the rising trends in obesity worldwide – little is known about how fat influences the process by which a non-cancerous cell turns into a cancerous one.

“While there have been several advances in treating cancer and improving the quality of life of patients, the number of new cases continues to surge,” says Prof. Bernard.

And so does obesity. Currently, 38 percent of people in the United States are estimated to be obese, write the authors, and the rates are expected to reach 42 percent by 2050.
