Nigerian finance minister, in Liberia as part of UN development panel, wants innovation, infrastructure and jobs for Africa
Better infrastructure, more jobs and innovative ways to pay for both are needed to ensure Africa's development, the Nigerian finance minister said on Friday.
Improving access to electricity, building rural roads, and providing water and sanitation, particularly in increasingly crowded urban areas, "matter so much" to Africans, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala told the Guardian.
"How do you transform the economy? You've got to provide the basic infrastructure for people to transform their own lives," she said. "You're killing many birds with one stone. If people have power, the welder in a rural area can make money, a woman can make money, children can read, health centres can have cold storage facilities."

Confused Lady-Do Men Fake Orgásm ?

My boyfriend before now suffered from delayed ejáculation - that means he could go for twenty minutes before he coms; a process that leaves me really tired and frustrated before he's done.
In November 2012 I had a heart to heart with him and told him how I felt about our séx life and since then things have changed. He comes quicker now, too quick if I may add and I'm beginning to suspect he's faking it. It's damaging my confidence because before now I thought that men should be able to climax whenever and wherever. I haven't seen his spérm in weeks. Is it faking it with me?

In his world of innocence, in an age that is supposed to be an age of gold turned an age of steel, an age that advertises the complete breakdown of human wisdom, he, possibly, may not be able to phantom the enormity of the cruel event of that sunny day, last week.
But when eventually he grows up, and he is told the story of how a French aerial raid in his homeland snuffed the life of his 30-year-old mother but threw him clear off her back, then, he would know that his middle name ought to be ‘Miracle’. Indeed, one-year-old Saida Jallo is lucky to be alive.
