A Recap of the Top 12 News Stories of 2012

The year 2012 has been a very eventful year. Various happenings across the country have shaped decisions, influenced policies and changed the way both Nigerians and foreigners regard the country.


As we count down the last few hours till the end of the year, we have compiled a list of 12 major events that will not be forgotten in a hurry as far as 2012 is concerned. There was never a dull moment in Nigeria, however, some events stood out and are worth recounting. Here is a list (in no particular order) of what we feel are the 12 major news stories of the year 2012.

DANA AIR CRASH
 The DANA plane crash of Sunday 3rd June 2012, ripped the heart of the nation. All 153 passengers on board and some people on ground died when a commercial airliner operated by DANA Air heading from Abuja to Lagos crashed in the Iju area of Lagos. The event brought about a reawakening of the falling standards in the aviation sector and a ripple of events followed after the crash. President Goodluck Jonthan declared three days of mourning; DANA’s operating license was suspended but the suspension was lifted some months after; the coroner’s inquest was suspended and more.


Doctors’ Strike in Lagos state
For several weeks in the course of the year, doctors in Lagos state under the aegis of Medical Guild went on an indefinite strike, shutting down health activities in major government health institutions. The effect of the strike was devastating for residents of the state as the health of many patients suffered and some lives were lost due to the lack of affordable health care. During the strike, the doctors and the Lagos state government were at loggerheads as for several weeks, both parties refused to succumb to the other’s demands, thereby prolonging the strike.  The doctors demanded for the full implementation of  the Consolidated Medical Salary Structure, CONMESS just as the Lagos state government said it couldn’t meet the demands. Also 788 doctors were sacked during that period but were later reinstated to their positions.

Man Dies After Eating 28 Raw Eggs In a Row For a Bet




A Tunisian man died after eating 28 raw eggs in one go for a bet.

Dhaou Fatnassi, 20, allegedly wagered a friend he could eat 30 raw eggs in a row, for which he would receive an undisclosed sum.

Mr Fatnassi, from Kairouan in north-east Tunisia, managed 28 eggs before he collapsed with severe stomach pains.
He was rushed to a nearby hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival, as reported.

Whilst eggs cooked properly are a great source of protein and part of a healthy diet, raw eggs could cause food poisoning and may contain salmonella bacteria.

Horror- Woman Kidnapped & Raped For 5 Hours By 3 Men On Christmas

Three teenage boys kidnapped woman, 22, on Christmas, robbed her and raped her for five hours even after she vomited on them.



A young woman’s Christmas—and her life—was shattered Tuesday when she was kidnapped, raped, robbed and beaten in her own car by three teenagers over the course of five hours, according to police.

"You’ll get sick in the stomach," said Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood, before reciting the facts of the case.

Around 11:40 p.m. Christmas night, the 22-year-old victim was in her Jeep Cherokee, waiting for her boyfriend to come out of a nearby bar, when three men—one of whom had a gun—forced their way inside of her vehicle, Chitwood said. They made the woman move to the back seat and drove her around Philadelphia for hours, police said. One by one, the men took turns in the back seat, forcing the victim to perform sex acts, even after she repeatedly vomited on them, according to court documents.


5 Ways To Know You’ve Met Your Life Partner


So, how do you know if he’s “the one” or not? That’s something only you can truly tell, but there are a few sure-fire signs that you’ve met your soulmate. Relationship expert, Lori Zaslow, gives her tips on finding success in love. 
1. Consistency from the other person.
I think we’re all looking for that–someone who is giving you consistency and making you a top priority. To me, lasting love is your “soulmate.” It’s healthy. It’s normal. It’s good. You can’t know right away! It takes time to know someone’s moods. I don’t want to put my stamp on something that anyone would think is instant. At Project Soulmate, when someone is on the fence about a person they just met, we always encourage a second date. You just never know! That person could be your soulmate, and you just blew him off because there was no absolute magic right away.

2. Someone who is genuinely concerned.
He is genuinely concerned about you and asks ‘How was your day? How are you? How are you feeling?’ Everything is not one-sided. The person can sense your needs and wants more. You might not need to use words. Of course, in life we do need to use words to articulate, but he might have a stronger vibe if he’s your soulmate. It’s as if he said, “I knew you were feeling that today.”
