Underwear bomber Abdulmutallab sentenced to life

A Nigerian man accused of trying to bomb a US-bound flight on Christmas Day 2009 has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, 25, pleaded guilty to attempting to blow up a commercial plane as a would-be suicide mission for al-Qaeda.
His family quickly called on the US government to review the sentence.
Abdulmutallab was badly burned when a bomb sewn into his underwear failed to detonate fully, prosecutors said.
Almost 300 people were on the flight from Amsterdam to Detroit.
Some of the passengers from the flight were in the courtroom as Federal Judge Nancy Edmunds announced the sentence.
"This was an act of terrorism that cannot be quibbled with," Judge Edmunds said, as she imposed the maximum sentence.
The son of a Nigerian banker and a former engineering student at University College London, Abdulmutallab faced eight counts against him, including terrorism and attempted murder.
Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), a militant group based in Yemen, said it was behind the attempted attack.

Breaking Up with a Girl without Hurting her feelings

Saw a Thread on Nairaland some days back where a guy wanted to know how to break up with a Girl without hurting her feelings. This I think is hardly possible, because if a lady deep;y loves a Man, It is quite impossible for her to not feel hurt when the relationship ends.

Different people would have different opinions to this, the guys would have a different say to this and the ladies would have theirs.

Some people share the opinion that a Girl must feel hurt except she is the one doing the breaking up. So the guy could intentional act badly so she initiates the break up. It doesn't sound serious, could work for some and may not for others.

It is quite a difficult feat to accomplish, because when the emotions are involved, Jokes have to be put aside.

In all, one of the best suggestions I found, was this:-

So long as you are honest then no matter how painful the initial break up is , in time the other party will respect you for the fact you treated him/her with honesty and integrity right up to the end. There is no easy way to break up with anyone but there is always the proper way. -1stKlass (NairaLander).

Would end this with some Cliche break-up lines used over the years

i'm not just that into you, again

its not you, its me

your not my type anymore

lets be friends

i'm incapable of loving now

what we have is not working out

your way too good for me, you deserve better

US singer and actress Whitney Houston dies aged 48

American singer and actress Whitney Houston has died in Los Angeles at the age of 48.

A spokesman for Houston's family confirmed the news, saying: "Unfortunately, it is true."

Houston was one of the most celebrated female singers of all time, with hits including I Will Always Love You and Saving All My Love For You.

But her later career was overshadowed by substance abuse and her turbulent marriage to singer Bobby Brown.

Police spokesman Mark Rosen told reporters Houston was found dead at 15:55 pm (23:55 GMT) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where she was staying as a guest.

"She has been positively identified by friends and family that were with her at the hotel, and next of kin have already been notified," he said.

The cause of her death remains unclear but police said there were "no obvious signs of criminal intent".

Torrent Site BTJunkie Shuts Down Voluntarily

The Megaupload shutdown has claimed another victim. BitTorrent indexing site BTJunkie has closed up shop.
Visiting btjunkie.org currently displays a blank page with nothing more than "btjunkie 2005-2012" and a brief note from the founders.
"This is the end of the line my friends. The decision does not come easy, but we've decided to voluntarily shut down," they wrote. "We've been fighting for years for your right to communicate, but it's time to move on. It's been an experience of a lifetime, we wish you all the best!"
The company did not specifically address why it opted to shut down, but in an interview with TorrentFreak, BTJunkie's unnamed founder said the threat of legal action was a main reason. "Witnessing all the trouble colleagues got into was cause for a lot of worry and stress, and those will now belong to the past," TorrentFreak wrote.
The blog noted that BTJunkie was reported to the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) in November, the MPAA and RIAA list it as a "rogue" Web site (like those targeted by SOPA and PIPA), and it is censored by Google over piracy concerns.
