Walmart comes under fire over "Back-to-School" sign on gun display

Walmart is under fire after a photo was taken of a gun display with a back-to-school sign on top.
The sign which read "Own the School Year Like a Hero" was placed above a glass case of guns. A Twitter user named Anthony tweeted the photo with the caption "Explain this @Walmart" and it quickly went viral with a lot of people calling out the retailing corporation.
Piers Morgan who is very vocal about gun control also weighed in on the situation.
''Walmart and folks are outraged."

Walmart quickly went into damage control, apologizing for the error and promised to look into it. 
"What’s seen in this photograph would never be acceptable in our stores," a Walmart spokesperson said in a statement. "We regret this situation and are looking into how it could have happened."
Walmart said it remains unclear whether the sign was placed there by an employee or by a shopper but they promised to find the exaction location of the store where the mistake was made and rectify it.

Jailed Athlete, Oscar Pistorius to be freed from jail for a second time on 'compassionate leave'

Jailed South African athlete, Oscar Pistorius is to be freed from jail on 'compassionate leave' next week to attend a funeral for his grandmother, who died earlier this week at the age of 93.
This will be the second time the convicted murderer will be given such preferential treatment by the Prison authorities.
Last October, the 30-year-old was driven by prison guards to spend a few hours at a boutique hotel where a memorial service was being held for his father's mother, Gerti Pistorius.
The double-amputee sprinter is serving six years for murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in February 2013. But he'll be eligible for parole in two years' time although prosecutors are still attempting to overturn his six-year sentence which they describe as 'shockingly low'.

Anthony Joshua's team disappointed Amir Khan got his wife to apologise for him

Anthony Joshua's team are reportedly disappointed that Amir Khan seemingly got his wife to apologize instead of Khan to do it himself after publicly accusing Joshua of having an affair with his wife.
Amir Khan and Anthony Joshua resolved their issue online after Khan's wife Faryal Makhdoom revealed that a fake chat was sent to her husband, making him believe she was having an affair with Joshua. Faryal apologized for the false accusation and Khan retweeted his wife's apology, adding that he was glad all was cleared up. Joshua accepted the apology but he is reportedly not happy that Khan did not apologize by himself.
Khan only tweeted: "Glad all is cleared up and all lies. I got angry like any man would. No truth to it. Good to know. All the best."
No where in his tweet did he apologize or acknowledge that he did wrong. Instead, he tried to explain away his action. Joshua has forgiven him but an insider told Sun Online that members of his team are furious.
The insider said: "AJ’s name has been dragged through the mud through no fault of his own which is totally unfair. We think an apology is the least he should expect. Anthony’s team are furious at what they consider to be a publicity stunt. They don’t want to be dragged into the Khans’ business.
"Anthony’s legal team got in touch as soon as it happened and Amir immediately promised to apologise. But it seems he has got his wife to do it – which is disappointing."

Mothers Shares Secret…In Less Than 2 Months Ellen Became Sound, Understanding Maths Concepts And Fully Ready For The Academic Session Ahead

All parents want to provide their child with the best possible education ensuring that they are equipped with the grades they need to pursue their future ambitions. The question is “how many parents are willing to take the bull by the horn doing all it takes to see their child excel?”
While some parents have tried several methods that most times end up futile, some even go further to devise timetables to ensure their child studies productively. All these I tried with my daughter until I was introduced to the most effective.
Here is how it started…
After Ellen’s 3rd term result it was made obvious that are weakest subjects were Mathematics and few other science related subjects. She has always struggled with Maths but this time it was so so bad I had to embark on the mission to transform her grades before it becomes irreparable.
I totally gave up on my ability to solely help her so I contacted a friend who also works as a teacher in a private school, well…she was the only one that came to my mind at that desperate time and of course she is a teacher so she should be able to proffer solutions.
I was shocked as she made several revelations as to why Ellen should get the support of a private tutor and how to get the best tutors in Lagos but first she mentioned the importance of having a child who is academically sound especially in Mathematics. Her recommendations created the turnaround in Ellen’s grade.
She got me overwhelmed with these shocking facts
Logic, the most fundamental element of rational thought, is based on the same concepts that make up basic mathematics. The make-up and use of equations to discover correct numerical values is directly tied to our use of language to uncover meaning. This means that a child’s ability to communicate and come to agreements is exercised through our use of math. But even more importantly, these concepts in Mathematics collectively teach a student important lessons like problem solving, rational thinking, and study habits.
She further answered the question most parents ask, “why do I need a private tutor?”
In recent years private tutoring has often been cited as one of the most effective ways of helping students achieve their academic potential. For students struggling with a particular subject it is often difficult for teachers in classrooms to give them the attention and support they need.
However, this is not to imply that the teacher or school is at fault.
In a classroom there are a number of other students and the teachers have the responsibility to divide their attention amongst all the pupils. They have to keep the students motivated and interested, and ensure that the topics are taught within a certain timeframe so that all subject material has been effectively covered.
By opting for private tutoring students can benefit from one-to-one attention and personalised lesson plans that specifically address their weaker subject areas. The private tutor will be able to quickly identify which areas of work a student is having trouble with and often by just using an alternative approach, or explaining something in a different way students are able to readily grasp difficult concepts.
After all she said I could not wait for an extra minute, my next question was “How do I get the best private tutor”?
Did you know that Prepclass can get you a verified Mathematics and science teacher/tutor with exceptional teaching skills to come teach your child 3 times a week for the next 6 months and your child would attain the greatness he deserves? Why not give them a call now on 09035321117 or 08059811502 and request here for a tutor in all academic areas. Contact them now and you can get a Mathematics tutor within 3 business days either in Lagos, Abuja or Portharcourt. You can also visit their Lagos headquarters on the 3rd floor No. 315 Herbert Macaulay Road, Yaba, Lagos or the Abuja office at No. 29 Mambillia Street, Off Aso Drive, Maitama Abuja.
The next week, I got a tutor from Prepclass and in less than two months I saw improvements in Ellen grade, she will gladly show me her maths solutions and her interest grew by the day.

Gambia begins financial probe into ex-President, Yahya Jammeh

A commission in charge of investigating former President Yahya Jammeh’s finances has started its hearings in Gambia.

The country’s ministry of justice believes that tens of million dollars of public money was looted from state funds by the former leader during his 22-year rule.  Three bankers and the director of the revenue service were questioned at the start of the public hearings.

The mining activities of one of Mr Jammeh’s companies, and the alleged disappearance of taxpayer’s money are all under investigation as well. The charity of the former ruler, the Jammeh Foundation for Peace is also under scrutiny.

The commission of investigation was set up by the new government of President Adama Barrow in July.  Its five members will look into allegations of abuse of power, embezzlement of public funds, and possible violations of the constitution.

Earlier in the year, $50m in assets, including 86 bank accounts and over 100 properties were seized by the government from  Mr Jammeh who ruled The Gambia for 22 years until he lost the 2016 elections to Barrow. In January he fled the country and settled in Equatorial Guinea.

"Saint actually weighs more than North": Kim Kardashian hits back at people who shamed her for her son's car seat orientation

In June, Kim Kardashian posted an adorable photo of her son buckled into a car seat in the forward position and social media users questioned her mothering abilities while criticizing her for endangering her child.
Kim has now replied the critics. In a new video shared on Thursday, Kim defended her decision to keep her 20-month-old son buckled in the forward position. She began the video by describing the situation for her fans, stating:
"So I took a photo of Saint and he was sitting forward and so they say for his age he should be rear facing."
The mother-of-two then disclosed the reason for Saint's car seat orientation, saying: "But what people didn't know is that Saint is now the weight and the height requirement to sit forward facing. Saint actually weighs more than North if that is believable."
Usually, it is required that children below 2 years are kept in rear-facing car seats. The American Academy of Pediatrics tells parents "to keep their toddlers in rear-facing car seats until age 2, or until they reach the maximum height and weight for their seat." California has even codified a requirement that children under two must use a rear-facing seat unless they are at least 40 inches tall and weigh at least 40 pounds.
Saint is less than two years and is expected to be buckled in a rear-facing position, hence the criticisms, but apparently, he's tall enough and has just the right weight for the front-facing position his mother kept him in.

'I want to leave'- Philippe Coutinho hands in transfer request after Liverpool reject €100m bid from Barcelona

Liverpool and Brazil star, Phillipe Coutinho, has sensationally handed in a transfer request to leave the club barely hours after Liverpool owners, Fenway Sports Group revealed that the mercurial attacking midfielder wasn't for sale at any price.
Coutinho was one of the best players in the premier league last season, and has been courted by Real Madrid and Barcelona, but Liverpool have rejected bids for the Brazilian, the last being a 100 million euros bid from Barcelona- stating that he will not be leaving the club;
We wish to offer clarity as regards to our position on a possible transfer of Philippe Coutinho,” a statement on behalf of FSG read.
“The club’s definitive stance is that no offers for Philippe will be considered and he will remain a member of Liverpool Football Club when the summer window closes.”

The 25 year old Coutinho just signed a new 5 year deal with Liverpool in January, making Liverpool to be at a strong bargaining position, but it's clear that the player's isn't interested any longer and according to Sky Sports, he has handed in a transfer request as Barcelona plan to make him Neymar's replacement.
'Philippe Coutinho has issued Liverpool with an official transfer request following the owners' statement that he is not for sale', according to Sky sources.
Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, said;
"If FSG is saying something like this, then that’s the statement. I’ve said it already a few times, but maybe it’s not been 100% clear, but now you can read it - maybe that’s the difference!," he noted.
"That’s the way it will go and there’s nothing else to say about this."

Usher was with his Plus sized accuser in her hotel room - Staff claims

 A woman claiming to be a former employee of the hotel where Usher allegedly had sex with the plus sized lady who's accusing and suing him for exposing her to herpes, has claimed the singer was at the hotel.
The source who says she worked at the Days Inn in Atlantic City,  less than a mile from the concert venue told TMZ that she saw Usher come into the lobby shortly after midnight on November 16. She says Sharpton Quantasia came down, greeted the singer in the lobby and brought him to her room.
She also claimed that she asked Usher for a selfie and he said he'd take one with her before leaving the hotel.
According to her, she waited an hour but he never returned.
Although, a few days ago sources connected to Usher revealed that the singer did not have sex with Sharpton because she wasn't his type of woman.
