IS THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT AWARE OF FRACKING? By, Frank Uche Dibia.
Wealthy oil dependent Countries such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Russia and co. are increasingly worried and have warned their nations that their days as wealthy oil powered nations are numbered.
Fracking, the new technology being pioneered by United States which involves using high pressured water to release oil from rock will soon see very high oil demanding nations including America and the entire European countries no longer as thirst as they used to be for foreign oil. Meaning that they could soon be self sufficient.

This is sending a jittery signal to the big oil-money dependent wealthy nations. At the present, almost all major oil exporting nations have seen continuous decline in demand for their export and yet there is no indication that the Nigerian government is taking note of this.

The issue of economic diversification has endlessly been on the lips of the government in the past without any action due to co…

POPE'S GAY PLEA TO HIS CHURCH. By, Frank Uche Dibia.
News have been making wave lately but wrongly about Pope Francis's comment on gay people.
To put the record straight; Pope Francis urged Catholics not to shun gay people who ''seek God''
He claimed the church should not marginalize homosexuals.
According to news feed, He said; ''if someone is gay and seek the Lord with good will, who am I to judge?''
The statement has been see as a break from the anti-gay stand held by some Catholics.
The elderly pontiff, who took over as Pope earlier this year, reaffirmed the Catholic Church teaching that homosexual acts were sin.
He at the same time said women could not be priests but he would welcome them in administrative roles.

Oxford Dictionary 'Redefines' Marriage To Include Gay Couples. The Wonders Of Civilization!!!

Opponents of marriage equality often accuse same-sex marriage advocates of attempting to "redefine marriage." Now the world's most trusted English-language dictionary is set to do just that in order to acknowledge the reality of legalized gay marriage. Gay Star Newsreportsthe publishers of the Oxford English Dictionary have announced their definition of the word 'marriage' will change to include same-sex couples. This is largely due to the fact that Britain recentlylegalizedgay marriage. "We continually monitor the words in our dictionaries, paying particular [attention] to those words whose usage is shifting, so yes, this will happen with marriage," an Oxford University Press spokeswoman told Gay Star News. Currently, the online version of the Oxford English Dictionarydefinesmarriage as "the formal union of a man and a woman, typically as recognized by law, by which they become husband and wife." Beneath that definition is the following: "…

Spain Train Crash: Driver Arrives At Court View Photo Spain Train Crash: Driver Arrives At Court A judge is preparing to question the driver of a train that hurtled off the tracks killing 78 people in Spain.

His court appearance will be closed but the judge will decid…
Swarm Of Bees Attacks Couple And Kills Horses View Photo Swarm Of Bees Attacks Couple And Kills Horses A couple exercising their two miniature horses have been attacked by a swarm of around 30,000 bees, stinging the animals so many times that they died. Kristen Beauregard, 44, was stung about 200 times and her boyfriend around 50 times as the insects chased and followed them in Pantego, north Texas.

MARRIED THE BREADWINNER. By, Frank Uche Dibia.The young man and his fiancee wedded on the sunny ember month in the year 2000 and haven decided they would like to be together for always as it is in marriage. He was happy and agreed to match his words with action. He had to match his prospective father in-law to the Catholic Cathedral to sign the paper work that would permit him Ed to take his daughter to the alter like the Catholic church demands. Thrown into the heat of married life with little or no experience of the regular duties of life as a couple, the young man had to figure out things himself as usual. Marriage dubbed the wedding of the year in and around their area as at that time, made headlines in almost all the national dailies. All of a sudden her ex-boy friend appeared to take the center stage. He even became more interested in Kate now than he has ever being. To make things a bit more polite, he was now dubbed a family friend. That was the Genesis, I mean when it all beg…
Egypt: 'Dozens Killed' As Rallies Turn ViolentOuchfrandib..Post View Photo Egypt: 'Dozens Killed' As Rallies Turn Violent At least 70 people have been killed after security forces attacked a protest by supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsi in Cairo, according to the Muslim Brotherhood.

German President Says Whistle Blowers Like Snowden Merit Respect (Reuters) - Germany's president, who helped expose the workings of East Germany's dreaded Stasi secret police, said whistle blowers like U.S. fugitive Edward Snowden deserved respect for defending freedom.Weighing in on a debate that could influence September's federal election, President Joachim Gauck struck a very different tone from that of Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has assured Washington that Berlin would not shelter Snowden. Gauck, who has little power but great moral authority, said people who work for the state were entitled to act according to their conscience, as institutions sometimes depart from the law. "This will normally only be put right if information is made public. Whoever draws the public's attention to it and acts out of conscience deserves respect," he told Friday's Passauer Neue Presse newspaper.
After the fall of communism, Gauck, a dissident Lutheran pastor, headed a…
HE IS GEORGE NOT JEFFRY!!! By, Frank Uche Dibia. The Prince of Cambridge's name is George. The name ranked high on the list of names that were been speculated as soon as his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced they were expecting. Taking an in-depth look at this name 'GEORGE', you will agree with me that it's truly a high flyer name. It is very popular among the timber and Caliber of today, not to mention of yester years. High on the list of modern day bearers of this naturally famous name are as follows: Two former US Presidents, George Bush and his son George W Bush, the popular Hollywood star, George Clooney, pop idol, George Michael, all time English premier league football play maker, George Best, British Chancellor of the exchequer, George Osborne. Just to mention but a few. There is truly ''something in a name'' they say.
AMERICA A TERROR NATION OR WHAT?By Frank Uche Dibia.
It is greatly unfair for United States Of America to be fighting armed terrorists who kill American citizens abroad while Americans are killing fellow citizens daily with arms without the government having to do anything drastic about it. It makes nonsense of the war on terror the United States is Championing abroad. If am not mistaking, the total number of US citizens killed at home (IN AMERICA BY AMERICANS) this year alone is by far more than the number killed abroad by armed terrorists. So what's the sense fighting terror abroad while there is even more terror at home from fellow American citizens. This is the time to act and to act decisively to save innocent lives. President Barack Obama has no more election to win or lose haven been sworn in for his second and final term in office. The time of rhetoric's and emotional long speeches has come and gone. The only language that can bring the needed changes is action and I me…

WHY OBAMA SHOULD VISIT NIGERIA! By Frank Uche Dibia

The President of United States visited some selected African countries the second time in his Presidency recently without even a transit stop in Nigeria. In the days preceding the visit, a lot was said as ''WHY PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL NOT VISIT NIGERIA''.  In as much as President Obama may have personal and policy reasons not to visit Nigeria for now, reasons I would imagine ranges from corruption to insecurity and in general bad leadership. President Obama has a moral, heritage and every other reason other than against to visit Nigeria. For instance; Nigeria is championing the war on terror in Africa, peace keeping and most of all, as is often said, ''is the most populous black Nation in the world'' and with out missing words, could be the next UNITED STATES the world might see in time not too far from now. regardless of the doom predictions coming out of CIA HQ most recently. To have the first ever United States President of African descent who in his 8 ye…
