Good news concerning Emeka Asiwe and Jonathan Elendu.
The publishers were arrested late last year for the radical views expressed on
their news sites and have been forced to remain in the country till date against
They have both incurred extra-budgetary expenses running into millions of naira
as their one-week visit to Nigeria was stretched into months by the SSS. (more)
We know since early this morning that Nigerian political blogger
Emeka Asiwe (HuHu-OnLine) could finally leave Nigeria but, at that moment, his
destination was kept secret for safety reasons.
Last update coming now from Nigerian Curiosity is "Asiwe landed in London at
Heathrow airport this afternoon. He was held up by security due to a tip off from
Nigeria's SSS. Thankfully, he was released and allowed to go on his way".
Another good new is that Jonathan Elendu (ElenduReports) could
recently retrieve his passport. Hope next step will be a flight back home in Michigan.
On Today's HuHu-OnLine you can read :
- Mr. Asiwe pursues N500Million Damages Against SSS (State Security Service),
as SSS releases seized items, moves to settle out-of-court.
- Mr. Elendu has slammed a N 1 billion suit against the SSS for his illegal arrest,
detention and seizure of his travel papers, laptop and cell phone. Advances have
been made by the SSS to reach a comfortable out-of-court compromise with Mr.

The birth of a friendship amid
the clashes between rival gangs
in Paris' Belleville district.
[Diffusion le 26 mars 2010 - 20:35].
Last night, my friend and I were sitting in the living
room and I said to her :
"I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent
on some machine and fluids from a bottle.
If that ever happens, just pull the plug".
She got up, unplugged the computer, and threw out
She's such a bitch...

... the biggest earth's trash, but it is so beautiful !
Approximately 95% of the objects in these illustrations are orbital debris, not functional
satellites. The dots represent the current location of each item. The orbital debris dots
are scaled according to the image size of the graphic to optimize their visibility and are
not scaled to Earth. These images provide a good visualization of where the greatest
orbital debris populations exist.
1 - LEO images - LEO stands for low Earth orbit and is the region of space within 2,000 km of the Earth's surface.
It is the most concentrated area for orbital debris.
2 - GEO polar images - generated from a vantage point above the north pole, showing the concentrations of objects
in LEO and in the geosynchronous region.
Have a look at some recovered objects from the space and from now on protect your skull !
