U.S. University Closed After 100 Students Fall Ill

A Connecticut university is shutting down for the day in response to an illness that has sickened about 100 students. John Clark, the president of Western Connecticut State University in Danbury, says he consulted with state, local and university health officials before deciding to close the school for Monday.
   
He says the decision was made "to protect our university community from infection and spread of the disease."

On Friday, Director of University and Community Relations Paul Steinmetz told CBS affiliate WFSB that on Thursday and Friday, up to 40 students became ill with an unidentified viral-like illness.


Now the number has grown to about 100 students who have come down with stomach cramps, vomiting and diarrhea.

Officials said maintenance crews will continue cleaning and disinfecting work on Monday.
   
The school is recommending that students go home, if possible, and if they fall ill, stay in their room to prevent the spread of the disease. Officials are urging proper and thorough health measures including hand-washing, staying hydrated, cleaning surfaces with a disinfectant, washing fruits and vegetables thoroughly, and visiting the clinic if symptoms of dehydration or illness develop.

UPDATE: In the last 2yrs, @ConcernedNIG & Shiites have gone to the NHRC to complain of various violations of our rights; many of which the Commission felt we over amplified. So today, we went with the corpse of citizen AHMED, killed by Police & we were attacked in their presence

The ATTACK on us by Buhariana Police right in front of Human Rights Commission was completely unprovoked

LIVE UPDATES: #Freezakzaky Protest at National Human Rights Commission now. Buhari killed citizen AHMED for protesting the unlawful detention of Zakzaky and his wife. Protest is a Human Rights.

We say NEVER AGAIN

How can a democratically elected government kill citizen Ahmad Rufa'i Dodo for protesting for the freedom of a man Court ask to be freed over a year ago? Buhari is a tyrant. We are taking the dead body of AHMED to National Human Rights Commission now. COME AND KILL US

The Buhariana Police were shooting tear-gas directly at us. What kind of provocation is this? I spent over 30mins calming down Shiites today but they have vowed to fight back because of the level of intimidation. How do you shot tear-gas at Women, Children then a dear body?

Buhariana Police shot 5 people today right in front of the National Human Rights Commission including 2 women. They threw many of the tear-gas even inside Human Rights Commission. How can we call this a democracy? #FreeZakzaky

We were seriously attacked thereafter by Buhariana Police and live bullets were fired at peaceful protesters. Many injured. How can you even attack Nigerians in front of Human Rights Commission? The level of impunity of this government is unthinkable. #FreeZakzaky

William Brings George & Charlotte To Kate's Hospital To Meet Their New Little Brother

The Duke of Cambridge today brought his children Prince George and Princess Charlotte to meet their new baby brother nearly six hours after Kate gave birth to a boy weighing 8lbs 7oz on St George's Day.

Prince William unbuckled George from his car outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, before he got out in his school uniform, then took Charlotte out of the car and she shyly waved to the cameras.

He then led them to meet their new brother, who is the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh's sixth great-grandchild. Bookmakers have reported a surge in bets on the name Arthur for the royal baby, who is fifth in line to the throne.


Earlier, Prince William appeared outside the hospital this afternoon, telling reporters: 'I'll be back in a minute.'  Kensington Palace said the baby was born at 11am, after Kate was taken by car before 6am to the Lindo Wing.

The Duchess of Cambridge will be leaving St Mary's Hospital this evening, the palace said, adding that George and Charlotte have returned to Kensington Palace after meeting their new brother.

William was present for the birth this morning, and both Kate and the child were 'doing well', according to a palace spokesman. Senior members of the royal family were all said to be 'delighted with the news'.





Kylie Jenner Shares Epic Throwback Photo

It's hard to believe that this cute little girl rocking double denim and a pink cowboy hat is Kylie Jenner.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has changed dramatically over the years, and she showed just how much as she shared an epic throwback on Instagram.

The 20-year-old, who recently welcomed her first child, is barely recognisable in this classic snap.

Little Kylie looks adorable in the picture.


Pictured on a sunny day playing in the garden, Kylie, who looks around the age of three, is wearing a sleeveless denim shirt and matching jeans.

Her shirt is decorated with flowers and tied in a bow at the bottom.

Little Kylie reaches up to grab hold of her pink cowboy hat, which is covering her cute brunette curls.

The youngster looks worlds apart from the Kylie we know today.

The make-up mogul is certainly all grown up and regularly shows off her womanly frame on social media, as well as her plump lips and ever-changing hair colour.

Police personnel attached to the Anti-Robbery Squad of Aba Area Command of Nigeria Police Force (NPF) have reportedly arrested a man simply identified as one Chinedu said to be leader of an armed robbery gang.

The Nation gathered that Chinedu, a resident of No.13 Truemen by Okigwe road in Aba North Local Government Area of the state was arrested at Erondu Street off Ama Ogbonna through a tip off.

It was alleged that activities of Chinedu and his gang has subjected lives and property in the area in danger before his arrest.

Some of the residents of the area who spoke anonymously confirmed that there have been pockets of crime in the area, even though they could not directly point to Chinedu and his gang as the perpetrators.


“We can’t say that he and his gang were responsible for the series of crime in our area until the day that he was arrested and when we asked, they said that he has been involved in many robbery operations. I think that the police know better and through further investigation, they can determine whether he is guilty or innocent.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Geoffrey Ogbonna couldn’t be reached for comments, but a source at the Aba Area Command confirmed the arrest of Chinedu and stated that investigation into the matter and efforts to arrest other members of his (Chinedu’s) gang was ongoing.

Though the source said that they may soon transfer the suspect to the state CID’s office in Umuahia as soon as they get directives for that.

Offa Robbery Suspects Arrested Through Girlfriends

It has been revealed that the 12 suspects currently being interrogated by Police operatives in Kwara State over the recent bank robbery in Offa were arrested through the tracking of mobile phones the robbers collected from victims.

Vanguard gathered that after the robbery operation, the suspects took away the handsets of the victims, which they later gave out to their girlfriends.

Officials of the robbed banks were also said to have given the Police all handsets found within their premises after the robbery. It was gathered that the interrogation of the girlfriends with whom the phones were found, led to the arrest of the suspects in Ibadan, Lagos and Abeokuta.

Further checks revealed that the suspects had been in and out of jail several times and that they regrouped for that operation.Some policemen compromised


Vanguard also reliably gathered that the proprietor of the hotel where the bandits lodged a day before they struck, was said to have informed the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, in the town over the alleged discoveries of some incriminating materials on the bandits while they were checking into his hotel.

The DPO and Divisional Crime Officer, DCO, immediately sent some officers to the hotel. A source said instead of arresting the suspects, the police officers negotiated with the bandits, and “the bandits offered the officers N400,000.” When the policemen returned to the station, they told the DPO and DCO that the bandits were Yahoo boys and not robbers as claimed by the hotel owner.

The source said: “It was not surprising that the robbers visited the police station the following day and killed about nine policemen in retaliation for collecting N400,000 from them.”
