And everyone hates cops left and right these days in America. Here's a cop that did the best thing ever and we are watching in Africa. Some people never talk about the good deeds of the American cops, just bash them left and right or just shoot and kill officers. Richmond, VA police is one I'm familiar with via social media where I made friends with some of the officers and see what they do in communities. They have a strong community policing system over there.

RICHMOND, Va. -- Weeks after a stranger stole his bicycle at knifepoint, nine-year-old Mekhi Moore is on the road again thanks to the generosity of Richmond Police. It was early August when a teenager Moore did not know approached the child near his home off Hull Street Road in South Richmond.

"He said 'get off the bike.' He said 'get off the bike' again and then after he pulled the knife out," Moore recalled. "I was scared and sad. He was mean."

Moore got off the bike he loved and rode every day and ran home where someone called police.

"In this particular case, a young boy was on his bicycle and was robbed of his bicycle by somebody he didn't know," Richmond Detective Derrick Longoria said.

Police took the report, but told Moore the truth about his stolen bike.

"He said, we might find the bike and we might not find the bike, but we will be on the look out," Mekhi's great-grandfather Robert Moore said.

A few weeks passed and Moore's bike was never recovered. That is when police took action. One Richmond Police officer donated an older bike. Other officers gave money to have it fixed up for Moore.

Neighbors were outside when Richmond Police returned to the Southside neighborhood with a surprise for the child.

"He took him around the side of the car, when he propped it open, pulled that bike out, the kid just looked at him, it was, it brought enjoyment to me," neighbor Fred Neiss said.

"When we took the bike out of the trunk, it was like Christmas morning," Detective Longoria said. "He hopped on it, he said 'thank you,' and he was gone." Police hope the surprise has a lasting impact on Mekhi Moore.

"They're very nice and they're kind," Moore said. "They will help you in horrible situations."

Nigeria beat Angola in AfroBasket 2015 Final to win first-ever continental title #HNNSports


RADES (AfroBasket 2015) - Nigeria beat Angola 74-65 in the Final of AfroBasket 2015 in Rades, Tunisia on Sunday to claim their first-ever continental championship.

In being crowned African champions, the Nigerians also qualified for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. Meanwhile, second-place Angola joined third- and fourth-place Tunisia and Senegal in booking their places for the 2016 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournaments (OQTs).

Angola went into the Final looking to win a 12th African title and led early on, before Nigeria's rotation made the difference as they turned the score around in the second quarter and once they took the lead, they held on to it, going up by as many as 19 points.

Chamberlain Oguchi hit a trifecta of three-pointers on his way to a game-high 19 points for Nigeria, with Olaseni Lawal finished with a dozen. Carlos Morais led the Angolans with 15 points while Yanick Moreira added 13. 

Nigerians have always been good ballers especially in the NBA in America. Now some of these dudes need to go to the US and become free agents. 

#HNNHealth The URGENT CRISIS of #Prostate Cancer in #Nigeria and why many men MAY DIE in 2015/2016






By Dr Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo (Special to Facebook.com/Vitaminkemi and @HealthReports)

Many men may die in the next September is National Prostate Cancer awareness month. Many men in Nigeria have been diagnosed of Prostate cancer in Nigeria but most importantly many have died of it, months if left untreated. Some have not even heard or done their PSA test. others have gone public telling the world about their stories of pain and many are public figures. Several high profile public figures in Nigeria have either been diagnosed or have died of Prostate cancer in the last 12 months. Alhaji Abdulazeez Arisekola, Pa Idibia (Tuface's father), Emir Ado Bayero, are just examples of those that died in the last 12 months. Some living with it it include my own father Victor Omololu Olunloyo, Prof Wole Soyinka, Bishop Desmond Tutu, and even President Buhari among others. Most Nigerians are in denial that it even exists especially men in their 40's and 50's.

Lets take a look at the Prostate gland. The prostate gland is located below the bladder and in front of the rectum. A cancer in a man's prostate is a small walnut-shaped gland that produces seminal fluid. It is the second most common cancer in men after skin cancer. No one knows what the exact figures of men diagnosed in Nigeria is, with many uneducated about it, they just hear about the prominent figures that have it. The size of the prostate changes with age and it is fueled by male hormones like testosterone as well as growing faster with puberty. The prostate’s job is to make some of the fluid that protects and nourishes sperm cells in semen, making the semen more liquid so yes it has a lot to do with sexual health.

According to the American Cancer Society manual, the inner part of the prostate (around the urethra) often keeps growing as men get older, which can lead to a common condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). In BPH, the prostate tissue can press on the urethra, leading to problems passing urine.

BPH is not cancer and does not develop into cancer. But it can be a serious problem for some men. If it requires treatment, medicines can often be used to shrink the size of the prostate or to relax the muscles in it, which usually helps with urine flow. If medicines aren’t helpful, some type of surgery, such as a transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) may be needed. Early symptoms may not show much but advanced stages of this cancer can show blood in urine, erectile dysfunction, problems passing urine, weakness or numbness of the feet or even pain in the bones (hips and back) where the cancer has spread to.

Several types of cells are found in the prostate, but almost all prostate cancers develop from the gland cells (the cells that make the prostate fluid that is added to the semen). The medical term for a cancer that starts in gland cells is adenocarcinoma. There are other types of prostate like cancers but most are usually adenocarcinomas. Some prostate cancers can grow and spread quickly, but most grow slowly. In fact, autopsy studies show that many older men (and even some younger men) who died of other causes also had prostate cancer that never affected them during their lives. In many cases neither they nor their doctors even knew they had it.

So men asks me daily how they can get checked for prostate cancer. The PSA test which is often used is now being said is not as reliable. I still highly recommend it for men in Nigeria who have no access to these tests easily because of lack of knowledge. Treatment can be successful if the cancer is diagnosed early with the PSA found in urine. But that test often gives false alarms or identifies cancers that develop so slowly they don’t require treatment. However learn to ask your doctor questions as early detection is still the key to survival. the local villagers and illiterates who do not know anything about this condition need to be educated drastically by health departments.

The herbs Echinacea and Saw Palmetto are great nutritional supplements for good prostate health and can be purchased at any chemist in Nigeria. In adavance stages, prescription drugs like Proscar (Finasteride) and Dutasteride (Avodart) are safe ones to manage patients. Remember always ask your health professional questions regarding your prostate health.

#VMAS Kanye West announces his Presidential bid for 2020 and Donald Trump ain't happy.

WORST #VMAS moment: Did Justin Bieber breakdown after the show?

<p>"What Do You Mean" may be a serious earworm, and Justin Bieber may have given a seriously good performance of it at the VMAs, but his head-scratching (and tearful?) pouting after his performance felt strange and uncomfortable. You root for Justin's sanity. This didn't seem like a step in the right direction. </p>

BEST #VMAs Moment: Ru Paul's drag queens had their moment with Miley.

You have probably never heard of Laganja Estranja, but the talented season six contestant of "RuPaul's Drag Race" has spent the last year and a half trying to repair her reputation for simply trying too hard on a TV reality show -- imagine that. Cyrus, who is a big fan of the program, not only had some of the biggest stars of the series back her up for the show's finale, but she gave Estranja a chance to deliver her patented "death drop" to the world. On a gigantic stage, Cyrus allowed a tiny comeback moment.

BEST #VMAS SPEECH: @KanyeWest's Gonzo Vanguard award acceptance speech.

<p>Kanye West's acceptance speech for the career-honoring Video Vanguard Award was twelve minutes of wild accusations about the Grammys, his own career, and his impact. It was shockingly heavy-handed, especially when you consider how jovial he seemed to be throughout the rest of the ceremony. Best part? When he declared himself a millennial: But all I can say to my fellow artists: "Just worry how you feel at the time, man. Just worry how you feel.' I’m confident. I believe in myself. We the millennials, bro. This is a new mentality." </p>

BEST #VMAS moments: Check out the look on Nicki Minaj's face at Taylor Swift.

<p>Nicki Minaj opened the ceremony with a bombastic performance of "Trini Dem Girls"/"The Night is Still Young." The Julie Taymor-type spectacle was rousing enough, but then Taylor Swift jumped up out of nowhere for a few bars of "Bad Blood." I guess they're besties now? Fine.</p>

BEST #VMAs Moment: Nicki Minaj's shady acceptance speech hitting on white gals Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus

<p>Nicki Minaj picked up the Best Hip-Hop Video trophy for "Anaconda," and in her speech she seemed to be mocking other pop divas (namely Taylor Swift, if I was reading her right) with high-pitched delivery. She thanked her fans for being "epic," which seemed pretty mocking too. Whatever it was, it was heaven. And she even got in a snarl at host Miley Cyrus, who took it in stride. </p>

At least she won after all the bitching when the nominations were announced.
