The Nurse, Oluyemisi Adebayo, 54, is said to have submerged the 23-month-old baby, Naomi Mondesire in scalding bath water that was 130-degrees. The incident occurred on Tuesday, April 21st, just one day after her employer hired her to take care of the child.
Adebayo was arrested on the night of Wednesday April 22nd, while she was trying to board a flight to Nigeria via London,Daily Mail reports.
Mondesire died from thermal injuries to 50 percent of her body on Monday, three days after doctors at Nassau University Medical Center performed surgery on her.

She reportedly told detectives that she did not know how the baby got burned, as she had used her hand to test the temperature of the bath water before submerging Mondesire into the water.

Is the “Foreskin Facial” the Beauty Industry’s Weirdest Treatment?

Is this the weirdest beauty trend we’ve heard of today? Yes. Yes it is!
A new beauty trend is hitting the New York beauty scene and slowly making its way to the UK – the HydraFacial aka the Foreskin Facial. This beauty treatment is one that pushes the boundaries of logic but it seems a lot of women are trying the treatment and swearing by it.
Basically, the treatment is a multi-step treatment that promises to remove wrinkles, reverse sun damage, lighten dark spots, erase acne and has the basic ingredient of the stem cells from an infant’s foreskin. Wait, there’s more.
According to Daily Mail in an interview with Regenerative Science Expert Dr.Gail Naughton“When we’re born, our skin is in its best shape. Our cells naturally secrete proteins known as growth factors that keep the cells healthy and stimulate them to divide. As we age, our cells divide at a slower rate, which contributes to the telltale signs of aging, like wrinkles and loss of firmness and luminosity. Growth factors captured from the donated foreskin of a baby (just one can generate over a million treatments) are at their peak ability in promoting rapid cell turnover.
The topical application of the stem cells to the skin triggers fast skin regeneration which then gives the skin a smooth and glowing appearance. The treatment typically takes 30 minutes, and involves a cleansing process using salicylic and non-glycolic peel to remove black heads, followed by a mask packed with hydrating hyaluronic acid and a serum with the foreskin extracts and finished with light therapy.
Users have described this ‘experience’ as one to try and compare their skin toBeyoncé and J.Lo post-treatment. It typically costs £100 (Approximately N29,900)
I don’t think I’ll be trying this treatment anytime soon, but it does seem that these beauty treatments that have the ‘shock factor’ have a very short life span. Judging from the once popular vampire facial etc; they come as fast as they go.
What do you think? Is this the beauty industry’s weirdest facial treatment? Are these extreme treatments just a fad, or do you think this is just the foundation for more bizarre beauty treatments? Would you try the foreskin facial? Share your thoughts!

6 Times We’ve All Felt Like Texting an Ex

1. When you’re on a three-glasses-of-wine-to-the-wind breakup bender. While Sober You would never text ” I love you ” to an ex, alcohol lowers your inhibitions to the point that even the most ridiculous ideas seem but brilliant, Einstein-invented plans.
2. When you visit an old couple’s haunt. At your favorite picnic park or coffee cafe, it’s enticing to send your most vivid memory of that special space, hoping the reminder of better times will warm your ex’s Grinch-size heart.
3. When you miss him. Ex aches come in all forms—there’s the missing-him-so-badly-it-physically-hurts and the wistful you-just-popped-into-my-mind-and-made-me-smile moments, for example—and when they hit, it can feel as if the only way to numb the pain is to send an “I miss you” message.
4. When you see his relationship status has changed. Did he just get a girlfriend ? Or get engaged? Who isn’t tempted to pop back into his life to get the scoop and remind him you’re still around—and happily moved on, of course?
5. When you want to say “goodbye.” Whether you’re moving cross-country and know you’ll never see him again or simply need some other form of closure, a “goodbye text” can seem like a legitimate need. (I promise it’s not!)
6. When you hear “your song” on the radio. If you turn the station only to hear your love song’s lyrics blasting through your stereo, that’s totally a sign, right? Nope—but many of us would still be liars if we said we hadn’t tried that argument on ourselves.

Chad’s Troops Rescue 43 Boko Haram Child Soldiers in Nigeria

Azem Agouna, Chadian Army Spokesman, said on Wednesday that they have repatriated 43 children, who had been kidnapped by Islamist terrorist groupBoko Haram and forced to become child soldiers.
He said in N’djamena that the children, who are aged 12 and older and are Chadian nationals, were found in the Nigerian town of Damasak, in North-Eastern Borno.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that Damasak was under Boko Haram control until Chadian and Nigerian forces recaptured the town in early March.
Agouna said the children managed to escape during the clashes between the insurgents and soldiers, while the local families helped them to hide from the jihadists.
He disclosed that when it was certain that Boko Haram had been defeated and would not return to the town, the children came out of their hiding places and asked Chadian security forces for help.
The spokesman said the army would look into how and when Boko Haram abducted the children from Chad.
