“I’m doing fine” says Nigeria president after 3-month leave of absence

[dropcap]N[/dropcap]igerian President Muhammadu Buhari, who has been in London for treatment of an undisclosed illness for more than three months, has assured a government delegation that he is doing fine.

“I am okay,” the 74-year-old leader said, according to a Saturday statement from the information ministry.

“I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge. I’ve now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed.”

The comments came following protests in the capital Abuja demanding that Buhari “return or resign”.

“If President Buhari cannot return to Nigeria after 90 days, then he should resign and go home”, one protester said at a sit-in on Monday.

“Buhari, where are you? Nigerians want full disclosure. What is wrong with our president?” read other placards.

Buhari left for the British capital on May 7 on what is his latest medical trip. He has been dogged by speculation about his health since June last year when he went to London for the first time to be treated for what his office said was a persistent ear infection.

Buhari’s main opponents in the 2015 election that brought him to power claimed he had prostate cancer, which he denied.

The health of Nigeria’s leaders has been a sensitive issue since the death in office of president Umaru Musa Yar’Adua in 2010 after months of treatment abroad.

OMG!

I think what this man did is the craziest I’ve heard so far.

Tom Peters is a 32 year old  handsome man who has lived his life for the past years as a dog. He used to walk on all four limbs, sleep in a cage and eat dog biscuits out of a bowl. This is very surprising but he just liked being treated like a puppy.

According to Tom, he feels like he’s a dog and he just wants to be seen and treated as such.  As a result of his desire to become a real dog, Tom Peters, young and handsome as he was spent millions of dollars on plastic surgery procedures and spent so many months in the surgeon simulator just so that he could look like and resemble a real life dog, without any doubt.

It was reported that the young man even sold most of his properties worth millions of dollars in his quest of becoming a real dog.

He used the money to pay for his plastic surgery and he doesn’t regret it at all as he is very much content with the results he got. The doctors changed his physique and body into that of a dog.

Tom Peters is a British and works as a theater technician. He has a fiancee who is not bothered about him being a dog.

Meet Caitlin Hellyer, the fashion blogger with dwarfism who has been an inspiration to others; Dwarfism is short stature that results from a genetic or medical condition. Dwarfism is generally defined as an adult height of 4 feet 10 inches (147 centimeters) or less.

Caitlin Hellyer, 20, was born with achondroplasia dwarfism, a condition that rendered her a height of 3ft 8ins tall.

She has long embraced her body, but struggled to find clothes that fit her frame, often buying bits from the children’s sections.

Wanting to help other small women who aren’t so keen to wear tops with Peppa Pig and similar childish designs on, she started a fashion blog and Instagram to share her finds – and has gained thousands of followers.

Caitlin reveals that there are certain kids’ brands that manage to be stylish, with her favourite lines in Zara, River Island, and Primark.

Plus, shopping kids’ ranges saves her money – especially on shoes, as she wears a children’s size 13.

A pair of Dr Martens, for example, cost her just £50 – a big discount from the adults range.

Caitlin, a student from Plymouth, Devon, said: ‘I used to find it so hard to find clothes that fit me and that I wanted to wear.

‘Now I’ve found the confidence to explore the children’s sections with pride, I want to share that with other people who might be having the same difficulty.

‘People with dwarfism message me from all over the world asking where they can buy my clothes – I love being able to think that I’m helping people.’

Caitlin got into fashion when she was just nine years old, when her mum, Jacqueline, started to let her choose her own clothes when shopping.

 

But even then, picking items was tricky, as at nine years old Caitlin had to go for clothes aimed at five to six year olds.

It took a while for Caitlin to be diagnosed with achondroplasia – the most common form of dwarfism – because both her parents are average height.

Her mutation of the FGFR 3 growth gene means she has an averaged sized torso, but shortened limbs.

‘Challenges are the norm for me but life would be pretty boring if there weren’t any,’ Caitlin said.

‘Some of these include reaching things, cooking, turning the shower on and even just getting around college.’

She has a great group of friends who have supported her through school – but when they started to go on shopping trips together, Caitlin started to struggle with finding clothes that fit and that she also liked.

‘My friends were starting to shop in Topshop and H&M, but nothing fit me,’ Caitlin said.

‘I loved going shopping with them, and they tried to help me find stuff that fit, but the sleeves on the jumpers were always too long and the trouser legs drowned me.

‘My mum is really good at taking trousers up for me – cutting the bottoms off so they fit me perfectly.

‘I tried to learn to do it myself – but it’s a challenge to work neatly with a huge pair of scissors and my little hands.’

That’s when she started looking to the children’s collections.

‘A lot of the items are really fashionable, and just smaller versions of what you would find in the adult section and they obviously have a much cheaper price tag, which was a bonus too,’ said Caitlin (Picture: Caitlin Hellyer / SWNS)

Caitlin said: ‘I did get some funny looks at first, but where else am I meant to shop?

‘I knew I would have to be selective – I didn’t want anything with Peppa Pig on it!

‘But a lot of the items are really fashionable, and just smaller versions of what you would find in the adult section and they obviously have a much cheaper price tag, which was a bonus too.’

Caitlin started an Instagram page and blog documenting her fashion finds in April 2018 and found that her struggles really resonated with other people with dwarfism.

She started getting messages from all over the world with people asking her where she shops and how she finds clothes that fit so perfectly.

This encouraged Caitlin to include information on what store each item is from, how much it was and what size she wears.

‘I don’t follow trends, because it’s too hard for me to find the items,’ Caitlin said.

‘It’s much more fun to create my own style anyway.

‘It’s much easier to be playful and mix it up without caring whether I’m ‘on trend’ or not – and I think people really enjoy that about my style.’

Study shows Children Born During Covid-19 Pandemic Have Lower IQs


Study shows Children Born During Covid-19 Pandemic Have Lower IQs; A US study has claimed that children born during the COVID-19 pandemic have reduced verbal, oral and overall cognitive performance compared to children born pre-pandemic.

The research found that children from the lower socio-economic background are the most-affected. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the mean IQ score on standardised tests for children aged between three months and three years was around 100, but for children born in the pandemic that number has fallen to 78.

For parents, who were able to continue their work from home, and did not face employment loss or any financial problems, the dual responsibilities of childcare and work have intensified the burden, especially on working women.

The dual responsibilities of childcare and work have increased the pressure on parents. And the families, whose bread earners lost their jobs, may have experienced greater stress, food and housing insecurities.

The study involved a total of 672 children from the state of Rhode Island. Of the total selected children, 308 kids were born before January 2019, while 188 kids took birth after July 2020. Besides, 176 of them were born between January 2019 and March 2020. The children involved in the study were mostly white and had no cognitive or developmental disabilities.

For the cognitive development of a child, the first few years of his/her life are critical. But with COVID-19 tightening its grip over our lives and causing the closure of schools, nurseries, and playgrounds, the infants’, as well as parents’ lives, have changed considerably.

Lead study author and associate professor of paediatrics (research) at Brown University, Sean Deoni said, “The biggest reason behind the falling scores is likely the lack of stimulation and interaction at home.”
