Barbara Dawson has no intention of leaving her hospital room. Although the staff at the hospital in the Florida Panhandle town of Blountstown has discharged her, the patient refuses to leave, prompting a call to the police department on December 21.
"No, no, no, no," Dawson implores the responding officer when he begins talking with her. She asks him to leave the room and says she is feeling sick.
In audio captured by his vehicle's dashcam video, the officer calmly responds: "Here's what's going to happen. You can walk out of this hospital peacefully or I can take you out of the hospital." Dawson repeatedly cries out, "Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God."

It is a very good development and I am happy she had forgiven me after all these years. Contrary to public opinion we have been friends all these while. The most important thing is that even when things are not working or they are not the way they should seem with a person, you should endeavour to remain friends with the person.

Why did you abandon Fishery Science to become a herbal doctor?
I was born into a family of traditional medicine practitioners. My father was a powerful traditional doctor. My grandfather was a herbalist and a hunter. I was less than five years old when I got to know about traditional medicine. It was ordained that I would be a traditional doctor. I was always with my father each time he was preparing medicine for his patients and even when he was sourcing for the raw materials. As a child wanted I to become a herbal doctor. I had a passion for it. When my father was alive, people would come to greet him and give him gifts. They would thank him for healing them. It inspired me a lot. I felt it was really something I would love to do. Continue...

Fayose while speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka in a statement said;
“In saner climes, you don’t arrest people for alleged fraud and start to look for evidence to prosecute them.

"I almost dated one actor/movie director, but I got my fingers burnt because his girlfriend then, Bisi Ibidapo-Obe caught us and dealt with me seriously; I still have the marks on me.
It was the popular actor/movie director who asked me out and we got very close. But before we could get any further, Bisi, who was one of his girlfriends, came to meet me at a movie location in Abeokuta. On that day, I just had my bath and was just coming out of the bathroom; in fact, I was just tying my towel. She was so furious and started shouting that I should leave her boyfriend alone! But before I could say anything, she had brought out a syringe from her back and stabbed me several times in the buttock. I was quickly rushed to a nearby hospital. But I thank God I survived it.

The Minister of Defence, retired Brig.-Gen. Mansur Dan-Ali, today said the Federal Government would introduce insurance package for soldiers fighting insurgency in the North-East.

This week racist commentary by a white South African estate agent, Penny Sparrow, went viral. Within a few days, Sparrow – who referred to Durban’s black beach-goers as monkeys on Facebook – had been publicly shamed. To date, a charge of crimen injuria has been laid against her and a complaint about her statements lodged with the Human Rights Commission. Since finding her phone number angry South Africans have sent Sparrow a deluge of voice and text messages and her social media accounts have been inundated with monkey emoticons. To top it all off, she’s lost her job and is said to be in hiding.
Sparrow clearly hit a nerve but her rant was hardly creative. It was crude and unimaginative, but South Africans – across the racial spectrum – have responded en masse because we recognise Sparrow. To white South Africans she is the embarrassing aunt who refuses to join the 21st century. To black South Africans she is the abrasive woman in the supermarket whose superiority complex makes her a compulsive queue jumper. We all know her kind well.
Because of this, there haven’t been many white South Africans jumping to Sparrow’s defence. It has been relatively easy for South Africans of all races to agree that the woman is obnoxious. Sparrow is an important part of South Africa’s story not because she is divisive but rather that she is so easily recognisable. Sparrow matters not because she insulted black people but because she so obviously misses apartheid.

It has just been reported that a Swiss Citizen by the name Beatrice Stockly has been abducted in Northern Mali by unknown gunmen. This is not the first time Beatrice has been abducted as she was earlier kidnapped in April 2012 by militants but released followed the mediation efforts of the Burkina Faso authorities.
According to a source the said gunmen knocked on her door on Thursday night only to grab her right after she opened the door.
Foreigners are mostly kidnapped in African countries, including Nigeria but are latter released after a ransom. In 2011 two foreigners from South Africa and Sweden were abducted and are still being held hostage by members of Al Qaeda (unfortunately, they don't ask of ransom).

The famous Celebes crested macaque, Naruto, has been denied the copyright to a series of selfies she took using a camera belonging to nature photographer David Slater, according to the latest ruling by a federal judge on Wednesday.
People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals, i.e. PETA, had brought the case against Slater as a representative for Naruto, seeking monetary damages owed to the monkey for copyright infringement. U.S. District Judge William Orrick ruled against PETA and the monkey and pointed to a declaration from the U.S. Copyright Office from 2014 that said works “produced by nature, animals, or plants” cannot be given copyright protection.

Oritsefemi was a year older on Tuesday, 5th of January, 2016 and some of his collegues were at his Lekki home to celebrate his special day with him. Timaya, Ay.Com, Reekado Banks, Jaywon, Ruggedman, Limeo, Myro and a host of others were there to celebrate with him. He also received a special cake and a phone from Tecno. See more photos below.
This is the moment a man ' caught his wife and her lover in the act ' as they romped on his sofa - and then promised not to leak the video online. The video starts with the man stood outside his apartment before he puts his key in the lock and bursts through the door.
As he switches on the light, his wife can be seen sat fully undressed on the sofa with another man. Amazingly, after surveying the scene, the husband calmly greets the pair while still stood in the doorway.
He then asks the pair what they are doing, before telling his wife's alleged lover that she is married. Without hesitation, he then asks his partner for a divorce and puts down his key on the kitchen counter.

Second son of 1st Republic Senate President, Late Abyssinia Orizu, Prince Orji Orizu has challenged any Nigerian, native doctor, any child or agent of a native doctor and anybody connected to any native doctor in or outside Nigeria to come out and speak that he has visited, patronized or been seen in the house of any native doctor anywhere in or outside Nigeria.
Prince Nwafor-Orizu gave the challenge while addressing newsmen in his house in Nnewi, following allegations by Rev. Fr. Chidozie Chilaka, aka ‘Jesus Network,’ of the Catholic Diocese of the East (Orthodox Catholic) during his weeklong crusade at Nigeria Science and Technical College Nnewi, that Prince Orji Nwafor Orizu was responsible for the misfortunes of his uncle’s wife, Mrs. Elizabeth Orizu and those of her children.
The Mbaise-born and Isiala Mbano, Imo State, based evangelist had allegedly called out one Mrs. Orizu, Prince Nwafor-Orizu’s uncle’s wife, during his crusade in Nnewi and told her that she had been under a spell from Prince Nwafor-Orizu.
