Andriod Nougat version7.0, set to be Launched 22nd August, 2016

LG V20 is taking that glory first
-where they will be launching the first new
phone to run Nougat on
September 6. But then, the Nexus Update
will be arriving sooner or
later – and they are also
letting Korean testers take
the OS for a run on the G5
starting August 22.
Meaning that LG wouldn’t
be releasing this before Google’s own builds, all
signs point to a launch next
week. Yeah, we already knew it
would arrive in August, and
there are two big clues pointing to that specific release date. And the reporters points to Canadian operator flat-out
listing an Android N‘ Update’ for the Nexus 6P
and Nexus 5X on that date.
The August 22 update will
likely just be for Nexus phones. But if you’re really
impatient, you can just download the betas, which
are on the final public

6 steps to follow, if you need a male child

The male sperm swims slower and its weaker, but during ovulation, sperm is more likely to get fertilised. 24 hours before the woman ovulates and 12 hours after ovulation. Maintain an ovulation chart and your cycle to be more accurate.
This might sound a myth but there its proven. Sex positions like ''Doggy-style, Straddling & Standing-up'' is recommended from the usual mood. The male sperm get deposited closer to the cervix when in the vagina. **Male sperms are fast swimmers but travel shorter distance**. This way, there is increased chances of fertilisation of egg.
4. PREVENTING HOT BATH: hot bath for men, weakens and makes sperms production more watery. **Not recommending for men looking for boy**
5. GIVING THE MALE SPOUSE COFFEE DRINK REGULARLY: Incase you hardly and/or rearly knew that taking enough coffee, makes the sperm cell Undisputable and Super-Active.

Some Difficult words that can't be translated to fench language

If you’re asking about word-for-word translations then there are lots. In fact between any two languages, expressions don’t translate well, unless you put them in context or find a similar (but it won’t be identical) expression.
Example (already stated): C’est pas la mer à boire=”It’s not the sea to drink.” What it means is the task is not that difficult. In other words, it’s not as hard as drinking the whole sea. But that took a lot of explaining on my part to get the idea across. A similar English expression might be, “You won’t break a sweat.” It gives a similar meaning, but you certainly change the imagery. Here’s another: Pas plus haut que trois pommes. It literally means “no higher than three apples.”
It refers to a very short, small person, generally a little child. In American English we might say, “A little peanut.” Similar, but not identical.
It would take days and days to list all the expressions. This is one of the reasons translation
work is so hard...

Nigerian Police Force, Arrested a Man, who named His Pet(Dog) Buhari.

Relatives of Chinakwe believe their brother has not committed any offence in giving his dog a name. One of such relatives, Chiedozie, spoke on behalf of the family saying; “Chinakwe is a lover of dogs and he names them after things that tickle him. He bought this dog a year ago and named it Buhari.
Unfortunately, some Northerners who dominate
the vicinity where he resides, misconstrued his intention and connived to take him up.” Confirming Chinakwe’s arrest, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Abimbola Oyeyemi, said: “He didn’t only name the dog Buhari, but boldly wrote Buhari on the body of both sides of the dog and was seen parading the neighbourhood dominated by Northerners with it. We are charging him to court for conduct likely to cause a breach of peace. You know an average Northerner will feel bad over such a
thing. It can cause serious ethnic crisis or religious confrontation because when you are relegating such name to a certain person, you are

50 children are mine, says; Mrs. Hilda Dokubo

Here is what she said:
“I do this through training. I have 50 kids who are not my biological children. I have three biological children, but I’ve adopted 50 others.
These children need support and I can give them that. What I do is pay their school fees, buy them clothes and give them food. I also help them find homes.”
“Acting is like my second life. If you say I left acting , it is like saying that I died. What happened was I felt like giving back to the society that has loved me so much. I chose to go back to work with communities, see and feel like
real people. I’m not done doing community work, but this is my time to come back and share those experiences in my work. I never left Nollywood, it was just a small break which was worthwhile.” On reconciling with her husband, Karo Mrakpor after a long separation.

Chunky fact from a place in the world Today: DO YOU KNOW IT'S AN HARRASSMENT TO STARE AT A WOMAN FOR UP TO 14 SECs._____ part2

"Do you carry a knife or chilly or pepper spray in your bags? if you don't the time is long overdue for you to do so," he reportedly told the participants. Martial arts is another option of self-defence for women, he added exhorting women to instantly react and inform the police if they were harassed by men. Reacting to Rishi Raj Singh's "14 seconds stare" statement, sports minister Jayarajan described it as "disgusting". Jayarajan said he will bring this to the notice of the excise minister and ask him to examine the controversial speech.
Last year the UDF government had initiated action against Singh for allegedly breaching protocol at a function attended by home minister Ramesh Chennithala. An inquiry was initiated after Singh had failed to stand up and salute the minister when the latter arrived at the Police Academy in Thrissur for a passing out parade.

Chunky fact from a place in the world Today: DO YOU KNOW IT'S AN HARRASSMENT TO STARE AT A WOMAN FOR UP TO 14 SECs._____ part1

Bangalore Mirror Bureau [ Gladwin Emmanuel ]
Senior Kerala IPS officer Rishi Raj Singh has created a furore with his comment that if a man stares annoyingly at a woman for 14 seconds he can be charged with harassment. However not everyone was amused with Singh's specific definition of harassament with sports minister EP Jayarajan terming the comments as "disgusting".
He even said that he would ask the excise minister to examine the speech made by the IPS officer. Excise commissioner Rishi Raj Singh was addressing a state-level empowerment programme for students at Kochi on Sunday when he told the participants that if a man annoyingly stares at a woman for 14 seconds a case can be registered against him. He also asked the girls and women to carry a knife or pepper spray in their handbags for self-defence. 52369555

5 Reasons Why Students Leave IITs, IIMs

People want to somehow move to the better option, better institute.

* As the fee levied at these institutes is not huge, it makes it easier for students to change their minds and opt for another college.
* Most youngsters preferred Mumbai and New Delhi over other locations. Hence, many moved from IITs in other locations to these cities.
* Students tend to dropout when if they don't get a good branch. If they get architecture in IIT and computer science in NIT, they will leave IIT for NIT. Such things do happen a lot.
* Adding that in western countries like the United States, it is mandated that leaving students pay a
fee for blocking seats. Here, the Supreme Court insists that you cannot levy more than a sum of Rs 1,000 when a student leaves.
* Academic pressure could be another reason why students leave such premier institutes, opined Srikkanth Sridhar, a student at the IIM, Bangalore.

U.K. Science Blast: Women Are also From Mars, As Men Does

'Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus' by American writer John Gray had popularized the idea that each gender's supposedly different behaviour was linked to physical and hormonal differences in their brains. The book, which is due to be made into a film starring Hollywood star Reese Witherspoon, even argued that housework benefitted women by boosting their hormones.
"Men and women not only communicate differently, they think, feel, perceive, react, respond, love, need, and appreciate differently,"
the book claimed. But Rippon argues such studies are "neurotrash"
riddled with flaws and reflecting the bias of
researchers. "Sex differences in the brain have been extensively researched, widely reported and enthusiastically believed but modern brain-scanning techniques show there are few real
differences -- and the interpretations are borne
more from prejudice than science," she said....

Vicky Kaushal had given an interview for a job
as a telecommunication engineer and had even
got selected for it, but refused to take up the job
to pursue his passion for acting. He said, "I had a
job letter in my hand after completing my

after this, nobody would take my interview in the film industry.. I wanted to live this episode." We are so glad he followed his passion and chose to be an actor!

Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer React to Hillary's Nomination, Diss Ben Franklin

The year is 1776. Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are delegates of the Second Continental Congress, and they're taking questions from 2016 Stephen Colbert via satellite. Cool—except when they freak out over Hillary Clinton's nomination, then re-freak out all over again when they find out 1) the year on the other end of the screen and 2) that Hils isn't even president (yet).

So good—especially when Colbert's like, "Um, maybe you should be more specific about what exactly 'All men are created equal' means"—that we'll just let the whole space-time continuum thing slide. Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer React to Hillary's Nomination, Diss Ben Franklin

history today: Simone Manuel Becomes First Black Woman To Win Individual Olympic Gold Medal In Swimming

ForRIO DE JANEIRO (Simone Manuel) managed to make history and break a record, all in less than a minute.
Manuel became the first African-American woman to win an individual event in Olympic swimming on Thursday night. She and Penny Oleksiak of Canada tied for the fastest time, an Olympic record in the women’s 100-meter freestyle: 52.70 seconds. “I definitely think it raises some awareness and will get them inspired,” Manuel, 20, said about the significance of her accomplishment. “I mean, the gold medal wasn’t just for me. It was for people that came before me and inspired me to stay in the sport. For people who believe that they can’t do it, I hope I’m an inspiration to others to get out there and try swimming. You might be pretty good at it.” Manuel is sharing a room with another record-setting American swimmer, Katie Ledecky, in the athletes’ village here. She and Oleksiak shaved 0.01 seconds off the Olympic standard of 52.71, set earlier in the Rio Games meet by Australia’s Cate C…

Prophet accused of abducting 16-yr-old girl said he wanted to cast out demons from her

A self-acclaimed prophetDavid Ifunaya, arrested by the Lagos State Police Command  for allegedly abducting a 16-year-old Muslim girl, sent the operatives into reels of laughter when he said he wanted to cast out demons from the girl and to liberate her family from evil spirits. The 26-year-old Ifunaya who said he is a prophet with Immaculate Ministry in Satellite Town, further told the police that he had a vision to set the girl and her family free and was only obeying divine instructions. While parading the suspect before newsmen, the State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, said the suspect abducted the victim for three weeks after the teenager told him that her father is a herbalist. “Throughout her stay in his place, neither did he nor his victim call her parents, who were searching everywhere for her. She was later traced to the suspect’s home in Satellite area of Lagos, following which her parents reported the case to police.” While confessing, Ifunaya said: “I met the girl …
