AMAZING!!!!.....The First Pilot Without Arms Licensed To Fly


Jessica Cox suffered a rare birth defect and was born without any arms. None of the prenatal tests her mother took showed there was anything wrong with her. And yet she was born with this rare congenital disease, but also with a great spirit.

The psychology graduate can write, type, drive a car, brush her hair and talk on her phone simply using her feet. Ms Cox, from Tuscon, Arizona, USA, is also a former dancer and double black belt in Tae Kwon-Do. She has a no-restrictions driving license, she flies planes and she can type 25 words a minute.


The plane she is flying is called an Ercoupe and it is one of the few airplanes to be made and certified without pedals. Without rudder pedals, Jessica is free to use her feet as hands. Her flight training took three years instead of the normal six months to earn her lightweight aircraft licence, had three flying instructors and practiced 89 hours of flying, becoming the first pilot with no arms.

Be Inspired, limiting beliefs can prevent you from succeeding. If you can dream it, you can achieve it.

Saudi Arabia Deports 683 Female Pilgrims


The government of Saudi Arabia yesterday Thursday September 27th deported another batch of 512 pilgrims to Nigeria, a day after deporting 171 women.
The Saudi government detained and eventually deported these women who went to the country for the 2012 Hajj, because they were not accompanied by approved male guardians which they say is against laid down rules of their kingdom. Over one thousand Nigerian female pilgrims were detained at the Abdul-Aziz International Airport and King Fahd Airport in Jeddah and Medina before they started gradually deporting them into Nigeria via Kano and Sokoto airports
Nigerian government yesterday issued a 24-hour ultimatum to the Saudi authority to resolve the issue…or… Well, the ultimatum expired today and hundreds of pilgrims are still detained.

Snoop Dogg says his son can smoke weed if he wants to

The family that smokes together stays together? So it would seem in the house of Snoop Dogg, where the hip-hop legend not only tokes with his eldest son Corde (nicknamed “Spank”), he’s helping the 18-year-old launch a career as Spanky Danky,  whose songs have such titles as “Rollin, Rollin, Rollin … Stoned,” “California Gs” and “Commemoration of Vaporization.”
“What better way to [learn] than from the master?” Snoop tells The Hollywood Reporter in a new cover story. He’s referring specifically to photos posted on Twitter showing son lighting father’s 2-foot-bong. Before Spank pressed send, Snoop didn’t flinch.
“My kids can do whatever the hell they want,” he explains of his parenting philosophy. “For me to say otherwise would be hypocritical. A lot of motherf—ers don’t have a relationship with their kids, and that’s when they get on drugs and have suicidal thoughts and drive drunk. Me and my son is mellow. I’m his father, so I wanna show him the proper way because he looks up to me.”
Bet lots of youth wish they have a father like that.

SENIOR IMMIGRATION OFFICER WORKING FOR BOKO HARAM ARRESTED


The resolve of Nigeria's security agencies to flush out the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram from parts of the North, yielded more fruits culminating in the arrest of agents of th
e terrorist group in some paramilitary agencies

Among those arrested in the latest onslaught was Ahmed Grema Mohammed, a top immigration officer whose confessions led to the arrest of others who have been carrying attacks on government officials across some States of the North.

According to the Spokesman of the JTF, Lt. Colonel Sagir Musa, those already apprehended are some security personnel who have been carrying out attacks in Borno and Yobe which he said was a major breakthrough in their efforts at flushing out insiders in the security forces collaborating with the deadly groups.

A Statement by Musa said that those arrested have confessed to being active members of the Boko Haram sect who joined the sect well before the 2009 crisis and received a lot of training in and outside the country.

He said that Grema also confessed to have been trained alongside 15 other members of the sect on weapon handling, assassinations and special operations in Niger Republic.

Musa said Grema was arrested at a checkpoint on his way to Maiduguri while impersonating as a Nigeria Army lieutenant.

He further said during the trip Grema had planned killing a former special adviser to the immediate governor of Borno state. He also disclosed that Grema had equally confessed to the killings of some senior civil servants, security agencies and politicians in Yobe and Borno States who spoke against the activities of the sect, including the slain former chairman of Damboa LGA, Alhaji Lawal Kawu.

Grema was also among those that led attacks on Yobe Police Command, Damaturu Prison, some primary schools, among others.
