Man found 100 thousand dollars and returned

The taxi driver Juan Amado, father of eight, found the bag and quickly reported it to the agency's manager. When asked, Amando said  "I did it for God and for my children,"

"When I suffered a stroke eight years ago, they said I would be in a wheelchair. I asked God to let me work to feed my children and He did. Thats why I'm going to return something with all that He gave me? I didn't do it for me, or for the person who lost it, I did it for God "he said.

"I did, in addition, to give an example to my children and although several colleagues tell me it is wrong, you should have told me in store for me, I insist that it is not so," he added.

The taxi driver told the media that when he returned the bad to the owner, the owner "was sitting on a sidewalk, heartbroken" for having lost that significant amount of money.

Would you have returned the money to the owner? Are you like one of his friends, what would you have done? Osas eye is conducting a survey. Please leave a comment below.

'Black Jesus' captured and killed

Steven Tari had been on the run since escaping from prison in the northern town of Madang earlier this year. Report say he was chopped to death at a remote village outside the town on Thursday, a senior police official told local media.

Tari had been serving a lengthy prison term after being convicted in 2010 of raping girls and young women who belonged to his Christian-based sect.

A former bible student and drop-out who promised his followers prosperity and eternal life, Tari was arrested in 2007 amid sensational claims that he had performed sacrificial killings and feasted on the flesh of his victims. In the event, he was charged only with rape, although rumours of murder and cannibalism continued to dog him. In 2010 he was convicted of raping four teenage girls who had joined his sect. He was jailed for 20 years.

During an interview with British newspaper "Mirror" the star said that this was also his latest tattoo as some others scattered all over the body, while the British public has branded it as an example of absolute lack of good taste.

Forbes has given its judgment on the basis of receipts from the world tour. Steven Spielberg, despite the success of his film 'Lincoln', ranks second with a gain of $ 100 million (calculated in the year up to June 2013), for the most part thanks to past movies like 'ET' and ' Jurassic Park 'that continue to collect large sums of money. '' The success of Madonna, 55 years old, simply demonstrates the incredible power of a successful music career,'' said Dorothy Pomerantz of Forbes, pointing out that the 27 year old Lady Gaga was often referred to as a threat to the pop star's Michigan in the gap since the eighties.

The Most Shocking Reactions to Miley Cyrus MTV Video Awards

The image of the Smith family, appalled, tells their reaction to the performance and is the most shared picture on social networks on Monday morning
The image of the Smith family at the MTV video awards

I've come to the conclusion that all female performers, should dress like Adele. If they can sing, they don't need skimpy outfits to perform.

Pure porn called entertainment! Should have been censored. Miley is a disgrace. This is not "music". She needs her tongue contained. CHILDREN were at this show! She herself is a minor, reprehensible! She is a child cavorting In a perverse manner with adults. Aren't there laws against this!!!!!!!!!! MTV should be ashamed.

You haters leave Miley alone. Why is a sexualized performance a bad thing? she is good looking, puts on a show and can sing a little. People like that. I did.

Miley Cyrus please hire a choreographer and do it now. Do not pass go.
Your dance moves are gangly and embarrassing. You look like a giant albino spider out there.
Gee, was I too harsh?

For her "performance" to shock Rihanna ... you know it had to be really bad! The picture of the Smith family ... priceless. Pretty much the same expression I had, especially when she brought out that oversized fan hand. EEWWWW

I'm embarrassed that I belong to the same species as Miley Cyrus.

Talk about 'hate from a distance.' Guaranteed, all these Miley haters will have a completely different reaction if she suddenly knocked on their front door asking for directions?

As somebody else wrote, makes you want to weep that this represents music in America. Someday we'll look back and be embarrassed at this trash. Some are already.

Because that's today's young women. I blame their mothers. I have a teenage son, Whenever I drop him off at school, I'm shocked at how the girls are dressed. The mothers are actually dropping their daughters off, wearing mini skirts, hooker boots and cleavage showing. And you should see how the daughters are dressed.

Oga at the top saga video changed my life for ever

NSCDC’s Shem Obafaiye reveal how the video Oga at the top has changed his life dramatically.
Oga at the top saga video changed my life for ever

What is your opinion about the Channels Television interview that brought you instant fame?
I have nothing much to say other than to bless God for everything. I thank God for all that happened; I thank God for my boss, his support and love. He is a good boss and I appreciate him.
As far as I am concerned all things work well for those who love God and in all things, the Bible says we should praise God.  The people that thought they were going to ruin me did not know that they would end up in announcing my destiny.
In the history of humanity, there had never been any human being that had instant fame like I did especially in a case that was meant to end negatively.
My brother-in-law in London is even so excited about the incident that he promised to assist me make big money out of this supposed mess. He had already handed the matter to an agency over there to trade mark “Oga at the Top.” But I just asked him to forget it. There is no need for that.
Many of my classmates are in top positions in Nigeria currently, yet, they said I did not go to school. I can mention a lot of them here, including the Attorney General in Lagos State, Ipaye.
But why should I do all that. All the same, I give all the praise to God.
It was not the first interview I would be having with them (Channels TV). After that interview we shook hands and I even gave them my complimentary card. I could see that they were not really cheerful. If there was any effect, it was on them and not me. It was the same day I met with Governor Fashola of Lagos State.
Theirs took place in the morning and I met Governor Fashola later in the day. Some people believed they were up to something, but I did not know. I was only being careful with words as a security officer. We apply caution in all that we say and do. It was a live programme, the whole world was watching us, so, I did not want to be too free.
But like I said, I thank God for everything. I blame nobody for anything; I see everything as an act of God. They believe they would use it to destroy my destiny but God turned everything around for me, for the better.
How did your family take the development?
The day of the interview, 16th of March, 2013, was the day my father was buried. It was as if it was designed to destabilise me on the day of the burial of my father, but it was not so. It was three or four days after that they apologised and said it was not meant to embarrass me.
Channels felt bad because it backfired. Anybody that wants to go for an interview in Channels will be very sceptical now and henceforth. I just felt it was my time for divine announcement, so I did not take it the way they thought I would take it.
In fact, when I saw the T-shirt, I wanted to buy one. Some had thought that my transfer to Ibadan was a demotion, but they are wrong. It is not. They also claimed that my wife went to Channels over the issue. The question I asked was, to do what? She did not. The whole thing has only turned around to be God’s glory in my life.
What is your philosophy of life and how did it apply in the case of “My Oga at the Top” case?
My philosophy of life is to impact positively on this generation. I want to leave a legacy, a good and worthwhile legacy behind that will not make my family live or walk in fear when I am gone. I want to sustain my good name; and that is what I preach to my staff every day.
I tell them to be open-minded; be determined; do what you will do with your best ability whether people are there or not. Note that there are people watching you and your work will speak for you when you are not there. This is what I always tell them.
What is the lesson to be learnt in your “Oga at the Top” issue?
Everyone should identify a lesson out of the whole saga.

Death of the Blackberry: Decline, Sale

Q&A: What's behind the ASUU University strike in Nigeria?

The ASUU University strike drags into its seventh week. The Federal Government of Nigeria and President Goodluck Jonathan has refused to fund the demands of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU). With lecturers insisting they would not return to work unless the government agrees to implement all the content of a 2009 agreement both parties had, osas eye points to whats really behind the ASUU strike in Nigeria, the wins, losses and draws so far.
ASUU University strike in Nigeria
ASUU University strike in Nigeria? 
A week ago Governor Gabriel Suswam of Benue disclosed to news correspondents that the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Pius Anyim, will meet with the leadership of the Acadmic staff union of Universities, ASUU, to address the two remaining issues: earned allowance and general university funding for infrastructure development.

He said that after hours of deliberation behind closed doors, the meeting agreed on major issues except the two stated above.

“These are the outstanding issues, otherwise other issues have been agreed on and we believe that by next week we should be able to agree on all the issues and, probably, ASUU will call off the strike,’’ he stated in that report to the press.

Why is the Federal Government refusing to agree to the demands of ASUU? Do they value wasteful spending on creating more redundant committees and ministries to funding Education in Nigeria. Who's actually winning? 

“If you go into our universities you will agree with me that there are a lot of infrastructure deficit; so, we have agreed that all the funding agencies will meet with ASUU,” he said.

The most recent comment  by the Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has been rebuffed by Nigerians and members of ASUU. The minister said that the university lecturers demanded N92 billion as earned allowances in the 2009 agreement.
In a statement of response, the union said: “I want Nigerians to ask the minister where she got her figure of N92 billion from. There was never a time that ASUU made a demand that is up to N92 billion. I think the 92 billion Naira is just the imagination of the Minister of Finance and Co-ordinating Minister of the Economy.”

Dr. Ajiboye, Chairman University of Ibadan ASUU Chapter clarified the issue noting that the earned allowances jointly calculated with the Federal Government and ASUU in the 2009 agreement was N87 billion and it covers allowances for three and a half years for thousands of lecturers in Nigerian universities.

He said: “This is a government that signed an agreement with us on January 24, 2012 to the effect that they would inject N100 billion as funding into the universities in the first one month and that before the end of 2012, they would inject another N300 billion. The same government did not put down a kobo to any of these universities.

“So, it is a sad story that we are hearing now that the government cannot meet a demand of N87 billion whereas the government said that they would keep on putting N400 billion annually for three years consecutively to the tune of about N1.2 trillion. If the government is now saying it cannot meet N87billion, Nigerians should know that this is not a government that can be trusted for anything.

“The total amount of earned allowances for academic staff in Nigerian universities for the three and a half years computed together with the government was N87 billion. And that was agreed based on negotiations because we started from N127billion and it was reduced to N107 billion before we now got to 15 percent of salary payment of each person. It is called earned allowances and it is the sum total of the excess work which academic staff had done for the past three and a half years. You are now telling Nigerians that this is what these people are asking for as if it’s a new thing. Nigerians should know that it is what the people have worked for and not N92 billion. It is fallacy and what these people (federal government) are just pushing is propaganda.”

Prof David-West, a former minister of petroleum lashed out that any government, which fails to invest in education is a vagabond government.

He said: “Any government that fails to invest in education is a vagabond government. The problem with Nigeria is that we have more thieves than saints in government. We drill over two million barrels of crude oil per day. Why should we be poor?

“ASUU is saying that the government should spend the money to improve the quality of education for our children and those yet unborn. The same government that does not have money for education budgeted N1 billion each to feed the President and the Vice President for just a year. Are they eating rock in Aso Rock? If you went to school without shoes, ensure that your children have shoes. Good parents pray that their children must be better than them.”
This is turning into a blame game. The situation has taken too long. It's a shame that this strike has dragged on too long. How can you fix education in Nigeria when the people in power don't even believe in it.

“I made a beat one day and I emailed it to Travi$ Scott and he said he was going to add some stuff to it,” recalls Oshunrinde. “But when he was in the studio with Jay Z, he showed it to him and Jay liked it.” It was this beat, which samples reggae artistSizzla’s “Solid As a Rock,” that became the backbone of “Crown.”
“I notice that a lot of people will go on my Twitter and say ‘Wow I really respect her because she is a female.’ Before all of the beat battle stuff I thought there were a lot of female producers. Now that I am in the industry I see that there are none. It would be great to see more females in the game. You are never too young to just do it."
