By Sam Eyoboka OVER the weekend, Nigerians in the Diaspora went agog with pride and jubilation as the Nigerian flag flew in honour of a survivor of Boko Haram terrorists who bagged a Bachelor of Science degree in a Californian university. At the capacity-filled invitation-only event, a US Congresswoman, Representative Grace Napolitano representing California, was also awarded an honorary doctorate for 30 years of public service. Congresswoman Napolitano who was the special guest speaker at the graduation described her ordeal growing up poor after her birth in 1936 and early marriage at 18 and birthing five children by the time she was 23. She commended the graduating class of 2019 for “the strength of character and courageous spirit that brought you to this day.” The congresswoman said that she herself had “no degree” due to discrimination in her childhood but “I congratulate you” for earning degrees. “Without a degree,” she … [Read more...] about Nigerian flag flies in US as Boko Haram survivor, US congresswoman bag degrees

Occasionally, a story about a single person or about single life captures the imagination of countless single people, and it gets sent to me over and over again. It gets forwarded by email, posted on my Facebook page or the page of the Community of Single People, and posted on Twitter. So it was with the story of Emma Morano, a 115-year-old who attributed her longevity to living single for the previous 77 years of her adult life. I was delighted that so many people got a kick out of that story, and that it went viral. But the social scientist in me just shrugged. As a researcher who likes to make empirical statements based on data – lots and lots of carefully-collected data from rigorously designed studies – the story of just one person is, well, the story of just one person. And yet, my analyses and critiques of scientific research have never had the same impact as the story of that one awesome 115-year-old single woman. I’ve been laboring for two decades, trying to … [Read more...] about Two Single Women Who Outlived Nearly Everyone in the World

In October 2016, Charles Marlowe, aka “Vegan Cheetah,” a popular personality in the strange internet corner of vegan YouTube, went live on his vlog. Two and half hours into his four-hour broadcast, Marlowe decided to sing about a recent alleged Skype call. “I’m sorry that I didn’t want to FaceTime fuck, FaceTime fuck, FaceTime fuck,” he sang while strumming an acoustic guitar.“Scamartist in my DMs! Trying to see my cock on a Skype call,” the lyrics continued. “You were trying to show me your pussy, but I hung up the phone, because it didn’t really turn me on.”Prior to this 12-bar serenade, Marlowe gave his viewers some backstory, from his standpoint: Earlier that fall, he claimed, a woman named Anna Scanlon, another vegan YouTuber he refers to as “Anna SCAM-lon,” called him on Skype. (YouTubers moving over to Skype is sort of their version of sliding into DMs.) While drinking a Monster energy drink, vaping, … [Read more...] about Vegans On YouTube Love Drama.
