Baby born with her heart outside her chest


Ashleigh Louw has been born with her heart outside her chest. The baby is being treated for the rare condition after being born in South Africa. Doctors say the child's ribcage failed to develop properly in the womb, leaving her heart covered by just a thin layer of skin.Ashleigh's mother Anastacia Louw, 30, said the condition was only noticeable once the child was born.

The couple live in the Eldorado Park area of Johannesburg. Specialists at the Chris Hani-Baragwanath Hospital, where Ashleigh was born, have identified the rare condition as 'pentalogy of Fallot ectopia cordis'.Doctor Lynda Bleazard said: "I have never seen a case like this before. As there are no bones to hold the heart in place, it is a dual problem to deal with. The doctors are still busy assessing the child."

Poor baby!

What is racist about avatar?



What's all the hoopla about the movie Avatar being racist? What is racist about it?

"Avatar" is being criticized by some people who allege it contains racist themes — the white hero once again saving the primitive natives.

Since the film opened to widespread critical acclaim over three weeks ago, hundreds of blog posts, newspaper articles, tweets and YouTube videos have said things such as the film is "a fantasy about race told from the point of view of white people" and that it reinforces "the white Messiah fable."

The film's writer and director, James Cameron, says the real theme is about respecting others' differences.

Also the Vatican has spoken out against the film for 'attempting to lead the flock away from God with his “Nature Worship”'. It criticized Avatar for flirting with modern doctrines that promote the worship of nature as a substitute for religion.

I see!
What's your take on this? Is Avatar racist? And did it 'attempt' to lead the flock away from God? Like anything can do that...abegi. It's a work of fiction...Get over it!

Having worked to prepare Oluchi for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show, Rafael knows how to create workouts that bring the best results. With O3Profitness, Oluchi has found a way to bring this highly sought-after trainer to everyone’s living room.

While keeping total health as the focus, the video challenges consumers to change their bodies for life. O3 contains a full length 45 minute total body workout as well as a 10 minute workout for those with very compressed schedules.

The inspiration for the video has been with Oluchi since she first moved to the United States.
























“I remember living in the model apartment at an early age and we had Cindy Crawford workout video in the apartment that we all had to exercise to. Exercising helps maintain the balance between my mind and my body. It keeps my mind clear and focused…as individuals, we’re our own little gods and our body’s our temple. With daily and frequent exercise we build our temple. We can start building our temple by exercising to stay fit, strong and healthy. Now, [women] can have their own trainer at home by watching the video and learning how to work-out so they can stay in shape” – Oluchi

VCD/DVD is marketed by Happy Boys entertainment: 0806 006 5688

New Airport Attire...Go get yours!


Beat the stress of security at the airport, go to the airport this way...so other countries will know that Nigeria is not a terrorist Nation. :-)

Also, it eliminates getting to the airport 2 hours early...but you still have to take off your shoes. :-)

Earthquake hits Haiti


The biggest quake to hit the country in 200 years leaves a grim scene of bodies and crushed buildings - following a major earthquake on January 13, 2010 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. A 7.0 earthquake rocked Haiti today, followed by at least a dozen aftershocks, causing widespread devastation in the capital of Port-au-Prince. According to the The Red Cross, upto three million people have been affected and thousands are feared dead. (Population of the country is a little over 9 million)


Some pictures from the devastation that has left hundreds of thousands homeless...






































































































Even the presidential palace was also brought down.

Our hearts go out to the people of Haiti. May God give you the strength to overcome this.
Such a sad thing to happen. RIP to all the dead!
