CLASSIC VIDEO TIME!! EVI EDNA

MEET THE YOUNGEST BILLIONAIRE ACCORDING TO FORBES!!!!

Okay guys here he is 23 year old, Mr Mark Zuckerberg; unless you have been living under a rock or something, the name should certainly ring a bell! Well according to Valleywag , my favorite all time read. Yes I love the valley and love geeky gossip as well as fashion, "Number 785 on the Forbes Billionaires list is one Mark Zuckerberg. Forbes estimates his net worth at $1.5 billion -- a far cry from the $5 billion we pegged him at last year -- but still a nice chunk of change. (We've since learned the actual number is $4 billion; he owns 27 percent of Facebook.) The mag notes that "some analysts -- and even a few Facebook investors -- suggest the company's value is far lower." Even with that proviso, Zuck still ranks as the youngest billionaire in the world and "possibly the youngest self-made billionaire ever." Damn. I can't wait for the call from my mother -- "Mark Zuckerberg is worth a billion dollars. What are you doing with your life?&quo

SUNDAY THOUGHTS ALOUD! ABESTOS? ALTERNATIVE?

I usually would not discuss medical issues on naijagal. This however was of grave concern to me and that is a lot of homes in Naija are built with Abestos. Now reading the article below by Derek Both got me wondering. Could this be the reason for the high incident of cancer in Naija. Mesothelioma can develop after exposure to asbestos "Asbestos exposure can lead to a number of lung diseases including asbestosis, pleural fibrosis and lung cancer. Asbestosis results in widespread scarring of the lungs and can leave victims short of breath and more likely to develop lung cancer. Pleural fibrosis causes inflammation, hardening and thickening of the lining of the lung tissue but has a number of symptoms so can be fairly straightforward to diagnose. The other type of lung disease that can develop after asbestos exposure is asbestos lung cancer. This can affect either the internal portions of the lungs or the outer lining. Although it is impossible to determine the exact figure for
