Michael Jackson's doctor was convicted Monday of involuntary manslaughter in the pop star's death for supplying an insomnia-plagued Jackson with a powerful operating-room anesthetic to help him sleep as he rehearsed for his big comeback.

Dr. Conrad Murray sat stone-faced, his chin held high, as he heard the verdict that could send him to prison for up to four years and cost him his license to practice medicine. He was handcuffed and immediately led off to jail without bail to await sentencing Nov. 29

US warns it’s citizens in Nigeria of attacks on luxury hotels by Boko Haram

The US has warned that a militant Islamist group is planning to bomb three luxury hotels in Abuja after 150 people were killed in coordinated attacks in northeast Nigeria.

The five-star Hilton, Nicon Luxury and Sheraton hotels in Nigeria’s capital, which are frequented by diplomats, politicians and Nigeria’s business elite, were identified by the US embassy.
In an unusually specific warning on Sunday, US diplomats have advised their staff to avoid luxury hotels in Abuja. The embassy said the attack may come as Nigeria celebrates the Muslim holiday Eid al-Adha. Experts say the militant Islamist group Boko Haram, which claimed responsibility for Friday’s violence and threatened more attacks, is working with al Qaeda which could push Nigeria into a Somalia-style civil war.

The series of synchronised bombings on churches, mosques and police headquarters and running gun battles took place in Damaturu, capital of Yobe state. There were also synchronised attacks in Maiduguri, capital of neighbouring Borno state, and two small towns.

The $200m Entertainment Intervention Fund Is An Imaginary Money

Early this year, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan was in Lagos for his Bring Back the Book initiative campaign at Eko Hotels and Suites. The event was part of his plans in getting people to support his election as a substantive president of Nigeria, as he was then an acting president, and the polls were getting near.

At the event, where youth and the entertainment bigwigs attended in large number, the President, then an acting President promised an intervention fund for the entertainment industry in the sum of $200m, as a support to the industry, which has involved in making many youth of the country superstars.

But since the said fund has been announced to the industry, little or no success has been heard about anyone to have been able to access the money meant for them, as a form of loans for the use of the entertainment industry and its stakeholders. Many heads have rolled and enemies made because of the pronouncement.

But according to Olurotimi Aina Kusoro, the man in control of High Waves Video Marts, a top movie marketing company, he asked, “do you know what great trouble that said money has cause the industry?”

“There are some people in the industry that are superstars when it comes to government matters, the Amaka Igwes, the Zeb Ejiros, the Jide Kosokos and the Adebayo Salamis (Oga Bello). If these people have not been able to access this money, then nobody in Nigeria can access it.”
