[Gist] Tyree Boyce And Natalie Adepoju Are Dead

“Twilight” actor Gregory Tyree Boyce and his Nigerian girlfriend Natalie Adepoju have been found dead.

Boyce, 30, best known for playing Tyler Crowley in 2008’s “Twilight” and 27-year-old Adepoju were pronounced dead in a Las Vegas residence on May 13 around 5 p.m.

In “Twilight”, Boyce’s character Tyler Crowley is a classmate of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) who nearly hits Swan with his van, only for her to be saved by vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson).

The cause of the couple’s deaths have not been revealed. According to the E! News, it was the actor’s cousin who found the bodies of Boyce and girlfriend Adepoju. “Greg’s cousin woke up and noticed that Greg’s car was still at the house. He was worried because Greg was to be in LA. His cousin went to check on him and found them,” a source told the publication.

Boyce’s mother, Lisa Wayne paid tribute to her son in a post on social media. She said Boyce had been working to open a wing shop called West Wings, with sauces named after West Coast rappers.

“My baby boy, Greg Boyce was the best chef….oh man. He was in the process of starting a wing business, West Wings. He created the flavors to his perfection and named them after west coast rappers. Snoop Dog, Kendrick Lamar, Roddy Ricch, The Game, etc. He had flavors like, Tequila Lime Agave…those were my favorite. A Hennessy Maple flavor, oh man, just so damn good. I can say that my son was my favorite chef. He was on to something great and that was his passion…”

In an Instagram post, Boyce reflected on life when he turned 30 in December 2019.

“At one point I didn’t think I would make it to see 30 years old. Over the years like everyone else I have made mistakes along the way, but today is one of those days I only reflect on the great ones. What a time to be alive. Happy Dirty 30 self! Let’s make the rest of these years your best!”

Boyce is survived by his mother and his 10-year-old daughter, Alaya

Natalie Adepojou’s family launched a GoFundMe account with a $15,000 goal. The family chose not to reveal the cause of death and asked their wishes to be respected.

“However, due to the sudden passing and the need to bring Natalie home, we are asking if you can help with any monetary donation,” organizer Mariah Megginson wrote. “Natalie had so much life to live we are saddened that her life was cut short. Natalie leaves behind her one son, her father, 2 brothers and 1 sister, and a host of family and friends who love her dearly. Any amount would help send our baby home the proper way.”

[News] No NYSC Mobilisation Soon - Director-General, Shuaibu

Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Ibrahim Shuaibu, has said that there are no plans to mobilise recent graduates in the country for the compulsory scheme due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Shuaibu in an interview with Economic Confidential said only Batch A, Stream 1, who were asked to leave camp due to COVID-19 would be asked to complete orientation.

He said, “We don’t know when we are going to start mobilising our corps members. You know our training is also structured like that of the military and paramilitary. You can see that the Nigerian Navy recently suspended its training for its freshly recruited cadets.

“So, the moment the coast is clear, we are going to key into the way others will conduct their exercise, so that our corps members can be called back soonest.”

The Nigerian soldier in a viral ‘leg work’ dance video has allegedly been arrested.

A Twitter user, @GhenhisKhan is alleging that the officer has now been arrested, Wurld has also reacted, requesting for his release with a hashtag #FreeNAFOfficer.

“The song “MAD” by @thisisWurlD feat SARS, got futher free publicity because of the military guy (NAF), who was dancing to it, although the song is very “Sweet” and of international standard. We have been told the the military guy has been arrested.” the Twitter user wrote.

He continued and also tagged Nigerian Army;

“All I see is a combatant fancing away his stress at the front while keeping Nigeria safe from Boko Haram and other forms of insecurity. It is plain madness for anyone to arrest him for dancing to a tune that said “dealing with my stress and your stress and you know”

@thisisWurlD @HQNigerianArmy @DefenceInfoNG if it is indeed true that you arrested this officer for this then it is important that you release him immediately.

His mere dancing to this tune has earned @thisisWurlD 1.3m views on @YouTube“

Wurld also got a DM asking him to speak up for the officer. See Wurld’s reaction below….

“hope it’s not true that this awesome guy got arrested for posting this video of himself on duty. This elevated my mood and I hope we can help get him out if the information is true . Bembelembe! Spread the word 🙏🏾 #MAD #FreeNAFOfficer #Afrosoul“

The identity of the soldier is still unknown.

Recall that the Nigeria Immigration Service almost transferred five of its officers to Borno, Yobe, Kano and other states for participating in a social media competition known as #Bopdaddy challenge, which involves people video recording themselves transforming into a variety of clothes.

[Gist] Tiwa Savage says she might go naked in her next video

Nigerian singer and songwriter, Tiwa Savage has said that she might have to go naked in her next music video to beat her previous project.

The 40-year-old singer disclosed this while speaking to BBC on what to expect from her forthcoming album entitled 'Celia'.
She said, “I might just have to go butt naked in my next video because I don’t know what else I’m going to have to do to top that one!.”

“And, just to put it out there, this was done in Nigeria. All the cast is Nigerian, the director, the AP, everybody is Nigerian.

“I love the fact that I could present this to the label and say this was done in Africa by Africans, this is what we can do. Imagine when you invest in us even more, you would get amazing work.”

Speaking about the forthcoming project, Tiwa said the album encapsulates a whole mix of the emotions an African woman goes through.

“We’re going through this pandemic, so the idea was I want to let them know that I’m still a boss, that I’m still beautiful, that I’m still African.

“People have been really really creative with it which is amazing. The album is a whole mix of the emotions an African woman goes through: love, aspiration, being bossy, being sexy, being vulnerable.
All of that is what I think the modern African woman is, and that’s what I wanted to portray. It’s really touched my heart to see that people are having a hard time during this. I mean we’re blessed to be at home, we have light, we can pile up food for months if we want to.

“But there are some people who can’t, people who only have money for today or food for today. So this pandemic has really opened my heart to the real situation of where the world is right now.”

[Edu] How The World's Most Dangerous Bird Got Its Unique Feathers

It's been called the world's most dangerous bird. Its long dagger-like middle toes, in fact, were responsible for the death of a man in Florida last year.

But what excites scientists about the cassowary — a large, emu-like, flightless bird — is its distinctive look. With its black iridescent feathered body, its blue, turquoise and magenta neck and horned crest or casque, it's been described as looking like a "high-fashion dinosaur."

"It's a little over a meter tall. It's pretty heavy. Their bones are dense. They definitely can cause some damage," said Chad Eliason, a staff scientist and postdoctoral fellow at the Field Museum in Chicago and an author of a new paper on the giant bird that published Wednesday in the journal Science Advances.

The southern cassowary can inflict serious injury with its dagger-like claw on the middle toe.

"There's lots of stories about dangerous kicks with their claws. They help you to realize birds are related to dinosaurs."

Each of its three-toed feet has a claw that can be up to 4 inches or 10 centimeters long, allowing it to slice open a predator with a single kick, according to the San Diego Zoo. It can also run up to 31 miles per hour through dense forest and jump up to 7 feet (2 meters).

High Gloss
New research on the feathers taken from a dead bird has now revealed what gives cassowary feathers their glossy black shine.

"Understanding basic attributes like how colors are generated is something we often take for granted in living animals," said paleontologist Julia Clarke, a professor at the Jackson School of Geosciences at the University of Texas at Austin and the paper's senior author.

"Surely, we think, we must know everything there is to know? But here, we started with simple curiosity. What makes cassowaries so shiny?"

Unlike in other shiny birds, such as hummingbirds or crows, the cassowary's glossiness is produced by the rachis, or the spine of the feather, rather than the barbules, or minute filaments fringing a feather.

Since the fluffy barbules on cassowary feathers are pretty sparse, the rachis gets more exposure to light than in "thick-feathered" birds, giving it a chance to literally shine.

"The gloss is in a totally different part (compared to other birds). You picture a feather being like a tree, the gloss is in the trunk of the tree, not the branches," Eliason explained.

The three species of cassowary are native to parts of northern Queensland, Australia and New Guinea. They live on fruit.

The study suggested that the cassowary's unique gloss-producing mechanism would have evolved gradually over time, with an ancestral bird losing its barbules and the cassowary developing a thicker central feather shaft.

Eliason suspected that flightlessness might have given cassowaries more evolutionary room to develop their odd-shaped feathers.

"Needing to be able to fly is a very strong stabilizing force on wing shape," Eliason said.

"Losing that constraint, that need to fly, might result in new feather morphologies that produce gloss in a way that a flying bird might not."

[Gist] My Girlfriend Physically Assaulted Me Over My Own Money !! Help!!

I have been dating a girl for about 18 months now. Very pretty but my brothers, let me tell you... Look before you leap when it comes to pretty girls.

From the minute I met this girl it has been one money request after another. If it was small sums I guess I wouldn't really mind, as I have always worked for blue chip companies and can afford it. The thing is, her requests are always very big!.....20k this, 20K that.....but my brothers, I have to tell you the one that has made me even disappointed in myself.

She lives with her parents and they are the most dysfunctional family I have ever heard of... Everyday one person is fighting the other, and this my girlfriend, as fine as she is, is the most arrogant, prideful, violent & rude person I have ever met. She hounded me everyday that I must get her an apartment of her own, so she can escape her home, and I agreed to but by saving monthly.

Would you believe, one night, when she was working at a bar as an usher for guinness, she gave her number to 2 different men just because of this apartment. My spirit kept telling me that she gave her number out, but she kept lying...only for me to catch her texting one of the men when we were at church of all places.......

She even went as far as going to meet this rich man at a hotel, but the man ran away when she made that request, and I as a fool decided to finally do it for her. (I suspect she cheated on me that night and I always tell it to her face because she has cheated on me twice before)

I live on the Island and tried to get her to rent here as well, as I really want to keep an eye on her..... She has too many guys around her who live in that area and she is this kind of person who cheats out of revenge, even over small things.....this girl refused and threatened to break things off!....bro, as a mumu I sent the money to her to rent the place and for other things, about 400K.....

Ever since that money left my account, it's like my eyes cleared!!! I couldn't believe that instead of saving my hard earned money, I went and sent it to a girl that has cheated on me twice (or even more), lied to me, slapped me and done so many things.....but I just decided to leave everything for God, seeing as she was desperate.

The problem now is that the demands for that apartment is now becoming too much!!! The expenses just to get the place finished are such a burden on my financial and mental state...

The worst happened about two days ago, she wanted me to pay 20k. Infact I just got so tired of bills that I kinda was stalling on it, but what happened next truly shocked me. Would you believe this girl started punching me, slapping me and even tore my shirt cos of 20k. She even threatened to break my office laptop (working from home) until I sent the money, after that she left........

Now she is trying to apologize so that I will pay for bed and gas and the remaining brothers, I know u will say am a fool!...I accept...I am a handsome guy, studied abroad, I just don't know why loneliness made me fall in love with such a sadistic user... My only problem is, do I pay for the bed and just finish what I started or just free the whole thing and the nearly 500K I have already spent...

Please help!
