"The people who are making movies are children and most of them are unintelligent. The person who is playing the Igwe roles in all the movies these days is Olu Jacobs. He is not an Igbo man. I simply do not understand why somebody who does not speak the Igbo language, who does not understand the culture, the mind and the psychology of a people should be the one playing those roles. This is the reason why those roles are not being properly interpreted. Have you ever seen a woman beside a Northern Emir? But I watched a film where people had to help hold Olu Jacobs wife in the movie and he basically raped her because she refused to have sex with him and he was supposed to be the Igwe in the film. That is an absolute insult to the traditional stools of the Igbo people. If he knew better he would have advised the producers of such a movie or should never have even taken part in it at all." Legendary Nollywood actor Pete Edochie was quoted as saying recently

Caucasian Natural Human Hair is a particular type of Hair among the Russian various hairs.
The hair is being generated from the Caucasus countries like Armenia, Azerbaijan,Chechnya and Regions of Black Sea.The length of the hair ranges from 40cm to 90cm which is interpreted as 15inches-34inches. It comes in natural colours such as black, patent blacbrown and light brown and can be dyed into over 50 colours which could come as either permanent or temporary. One of the advantages of the hair is that it can be sorted, washed,prepared, arranged and combed without tangling.The hair is one of the most expensive around but it is one of the best.
European human hair does not necessarily come from Europe. It is a group name for different hair with an almost similar structure. Indian hair, Latin American hair, European hairand African hair (their structure is very different).Typical European human hair is relatively thin and has an oval cross-section
Asian hair (mostly Chinese hair) is very often used for human hair extensions. This hair is thicker than European hair and has a round cross-section. The Asian hair is verygood for bleaching (dyeing).To prepare this hair for use in hair extensions it is usually made thinner (acid bath) and lighter. This hair is less expensive.
Indian hair has a very similar basic structure as European hair. In general this hair type is of a very high quality. However the method of collection is very essential. When different types of hair are mixed with cuticles aligned in different directions this hair becomes of a much less quality and therefore less expensive. To prevent tangling the cuticles must be removed and the hair is covered by silicon. Hair companies in Korea and Indonesia are specialized in this type of hair.
Collected in the right way with all the cuticles present and in the same direction this hair is one of the best hair types available for use in a human hair extension.
Remi hair is a name you will hear when you shop around for hair extensions. They claim to use only the finest and most beautiful human hair in the world with all cuticles in the same direction.
The Mongolian Remy is softer and silkier then Asian and Indian Remy. Mongolian Remy has an in between thickness compared to the Asian and Indian Remy. It has more movement and lays down smoother then its counterparts. It also does not have as much texture as the Indian Remy therefore may only wave up slightly. If you are looking for a straighter, smoother texture - Mongolian Remy would be for you.
Mongolian Remy can be made in different hair textures for example Straight, Light Yaki, Yaki,Wavy and Curly.
Naturally straight smooth and silky Brazilian hair is highly affordable. Brazilian Hair as the name implies, is gotten from Brazilians and the hair is not as expensive as the other category of human hair. It is the most available brand of hair but not as durable as the Caucasian hair, European hair nor India Remy.
The hair comes in a range of natural brown colours and is naturally silky. It can be used for all
types of extensions and hair replacement techniques and is also ethical for Sheitel making. This hair will last for years and will never dry out or becomes straw like.
Synthetic hair is man-made fiber that is made to look like your own hair. It produces a different sheen than human hair, moves differently and therefore does not blend with human hair. New fibers are developed continuously that are better resistant to heat and have an appearance closer to human hair. It comes in a large variety of colors. This hair is the most inexpensive. Sometimes this hair is mixed with human hair and a combination is used for a human hair extension. In most cases this is of course not the way to do it. Both hair types need to be treated differently.
Majority of the hair sold today are non-cuticle hair, which is less expensive. So if you want to spend less money on your hair extension this could be fine for you as long as you realize that this hair will probably start matting, tangling and become dry a lot sooner than a higher quality hair.
Overheating is one of your hair's biggest enemies, the damage can be as deep as the cortex which is in the middle. Be careful not to use too much heat when you use a blowdryer or curling iron. It is best to let your hair dry naturally. Chemical treatments like color and perm can be harmful as well. Go to your stylist for advise, they should know what is best for your hair. Brush your hair gentle to prevent damage. This is not just better for your hair extensions but it will also keep your own hair healthier.

A man faces a hefty fine and a driving ban after being caught having sex with his girlfriend while speeding on a motorway in Norway, police have said.
Officers initially trailed the couple’s car after noticing it was swerving from side to side and travelling at 33km/h (20mph) over the road’s speed limit.
But they soon realised the erratic driving was due to the woman “sitting on the man’s lap”, a spokesman said.
After filming the exploit for evidence, they pulled them over at a rest area.
The 28-year-old man’s punishment will be decided within the next week, but police said he was likely to face a fine of several thousand Norwegian kroner and a lengthy driving ban.
“Why they did it on a highway with such high risk we don’t know,” Tor Stein Hagen, a superintendent with Soendre Buskerud Police District, told the AFP news agency.
“[The vehicle] was veering from one side to the other because the woman was sitting on the man’s lap while he was driving and doing the act, shall we say,” he added.
“He couldn’t see much because her back was in the way.”
Despite her prominent role in the incident, the 21-year-old woman was permitted by police to drive her lover home.
I wonder if this kind of DANGER is an Aphrodisiac.
A planned auction of more than 1,000 items from the former home of pop star Michael Jackson has been cancelled.
Nearly 1,400 items from the singer’s Neverland Ranch in California were due to go under the auctioneer’s hammer next week.
But Jackson’s production company sued the auction house to stop the sale.
A last-minute settlement means Jackson’s belongings will now be returned to him. In response, he has dropped the lawsuit.
A public preview of the collection had already begun in Los Angeles and the exhibition of Jackson’s possessions will stay open until the end of next week.
But many will be sad they will not get to own any Michael Jackson memorabilia.
The items that were to be sold included his famous crystal-encrusted white glove, a golden throne and the gates to the Neverland Ranch.
The sprawling property was Mr Jackson’s home for many years. It included a zoo and theme park.
He left in 2005, after he was acquitted of child abuse charges in a high-profile court case.
Financial problems forced him to sell part-ownership of the property last year.
Excessive hairiness in women is not just a cosmetic problem but is likely to be a sign of an underlying medical condition, say UK doctors in a report.
Five to 15% of women have excess hair, and a hormone disorder is the most likely cause in many cases, they said.
Women with the problem should not be afraid to seek medical advice, the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists report urged.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the cause in 70% to 80% of cases.
Report author, Dr Rebecca Swingler, a specialist registrar in obstetrics and gynaecology at St Michael’s Hospital in Bristol, said the condition, known as hirsutism, is distressing and can be particularly upsetting for young women.
Estimates of how many women are affected are likely to be underestimated because women can be reluctant to seek help, she added.
Often women have spent many years trying to cope with their hirsutism before they seek professional help
Dr Rebecca Swingler
In addition to PCOS, rarer causes of excessive hairiness include certain tumours and thyroid dysfunction, as well as the use of certain drugs.
Mild cases can be treated cosmetically, she said, but in moderate to severe cases, hormone therapy, such as the oral contraceptive pill and other treatments are available.
Weight loss, especially in obese women, may also help reduce high levels of the male hormone testosterone which can be an underlying factor in cases of excess hair.
“Often women have spent many years trying to cope with their hirsutism before they seek professional help,” said Dr Swingler.
Women need to look at themselves in the context of their family and ethnicity and what is ‘normal’ for them.
“If they notice a change in the pattern of hair growth or they notice they having to wax more often then they should seek help,” she said.
Professor Stephen Franks, an expert in reproductive endocrinology at Imperial College London, said the condition could be very embarrassing and women might be reluctant to seek medical advice.
They may also not realise hirsutism could be linked to a condition like PCOS because symptoms such as irregular periods are not present, he added.
“It’s always worth getting it investigated. Even if it’s a benign condition.”
Professor Franks said how much hair growth was considered excessive was subjective, but that women should not be afraid to seek help.
Rachel Hawkes, chairwoman of PCOS charity Verity, said many women with excess hair growth did not actively seek treatment because they were embarrassed.
“The effect that excess hair can have on a woman’s self-esteem and how she views herself as a woman – and therefore her quality of life – can be extremely distressing.
“We recommend women with PCOS who suffer with excess hair growth seek the advice of their GP, or ask to be referred to an endocrinologist or dermatologist
A meeting held recently in London assessed plans put forward by several potential new owners but no firm decision was made.
Chairman Martin Broughton said last month he hoped a sale could be completed before the close of this transfer window but the process is set to drag on longer.
The Liverpool FC board has reviewed a number of proposed bids for the club at a meeting held today," read a club statement.
"The board will continue to act in the best interests of Liverpool Football Club and its supporters, doing all that it can to ensure that the club is ultimately sold to a buyer who has the resources and real commitment to give it a long-term, stable and secure funding position for its plans.
"The sale process is continuing. However, its timing and outcome remain uncertain.
"In the meantime, we will not comment on rumour and speculation."
Owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett face a £20million penalty payment - levied against them and not the club - if a sale is not completed by the end of August.
That condition was imposed by major creditors Royal Bank of Scotland as part of the loan refinancing package agreed earlier this year and is in addition to the payments-in-kind fees of £2.5million-a-week.
RBS also set a deadline of October for the loan to be repaid, effectively setting a sell-by date for Hicks and Gillett.
It seems likely if the club is to be sold it will be then and not now, despite the claims of the two parties who have been most vociferous in expressing their interest.
Chinese businessman Kenny Huang claimed on Thursday he was "50% sure" of taking over.
Prior to that Canadian-based Syrian Yahya Kirdi said he had agreed a price with Hicks and Gillett and was close to sealing a deal.
Nigeria's ruling party (the P.D.P )has said that it intends to retain zoning in the forth coming presidential elections, but that it will leave the race open to other interested party members from other zones who may wish to contest.
The decision was taken by the national executive committee of the party, after a meeting that was attended by the senate president, the speaker of the House of representatives and some state governors.
