Film Review: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

populationgo:

Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is mostly a mixed bag of good and bad. It’s a little unbalanced with the three main storylines, but the film is exquisitely beautiful with a multitude of gorgeous shots, especially with the addition of 3D.

Nigeria Challenges the World With ‘9jaBOLT’ Solar Car
NIGERIA is set to take on the rest of the world with the “9jaBOLT” Eaglemobile, a state-of-the-art prototype, and solar-powered racing automobile that is designed and built in Nigeria by Nigerians. History was made recently when Nigeria secured Africa’s sole entry to compete with its revolutionary prototype in the next edition of the prestigious World Solar Challenge, coming up in October 2015 in Adelaide, Australia.
Although locally designed, the 9jaBOLT Solar Car is as advanced as any global brand and manufactured product in the world. The feat which is a tremendous boost to the nation’s efforts to join the ranks of global technological innovation and industrial revolution is brainchild of Ebisike Ebube George, the vibrant and multiple-talented Creative Director of Team Nigeria, the group that is building the car from scratch.

There are glances in Zurich, where I am spending the summer, and there are glances in New York City, which has been my home for fourteen years. There are glances all over Europe and in India, and anywhere I go outside Africa. The test is how long the glances last, whether they become stares, with what intent they occur, whether they contain any degree of hostility or mockery, and to what extent connections, money, or mode of dress shield me in these situations. To be a stranger is to be looked at, but to be black is to be looked at especially.

The only way to take revenge on people who laugh, insult and underestimate you, is by being successful and having a good Goddamn body while doing that. if you spend your time hiding in your room, sad with self pity because of what people think of or say about you, you’ll come out a loser, not just a loser, a fat, depressed, ugly ass looking loser. Get your ass up!!!! @MensHealthUK #totalbodychallengeweek1 #watchthisspace

Nigeria have become the first African team to qualify for the round of 16 stage at this year’s World Cup!
Though the Super Eagles lost 3-2 to Argentina, thanks to Messi’s two goals, the still managed to advance as runners up in group F. What looked like a sleepy team during their game against Iran, woke up and played their hearts out tonight in their match against a team that hosts the likes of Messi and Higuain.
