this week after deputies say she strangled her
newborn to death shortly after delivering him in her
bathroom toilet, officials said. The 14-year-old tried
to conceal her pregnancy from beginning to end.
She wore loose-fitting clothing, manipulated
pregnancy tests and finally, delivered a baby in
secret at her home. Three days later, the girl's
mother smelled something foul in her daughter's
bedroom and found the full-term infant dead in a
shoe box among a pile of dirty and discarded laundry
Polk County Sheriff's deputies were first alerted to
the case Sept. 19 when the girl went to Lakeland
Regional Medical Center for treatment for a
purported miscarriage. She told her mother she had
pain and accidentally flushed the fetus down the
toilet. But when she talked to investigators, she
confessed to having gone into full labor in the
According to the sheriff's report, she put a towel in
her mouth and turned on the bathroom water to
drown out any sounds she would make during
delivery. The 5-foot-3, 100-pound girl delivered the
the 9.5-pound, 20.4-inch baby boy into the toilet. She
lifted the moving baby and saw he had a pulse.
According to the Sheriff's Office, the girl then
squeezed his neck for about a minute until he was no
longer breathing. The girl cleaned up the bathroom,
the baby and herself before putting the dead child in
a box, according to information provided by Donna
Wood, a Sheriff's Office spokeswoman.
Deputies said the girl's mother denied she was
pregnant though relatives suspected otherwise due
to the girl's changing appearance. She wore sweat
pants and sweat shirts throughout the summer
months to hide her growing abdomen and walked
around the home with a blanket around her, an
arrest report said. Wanting to protect the teen's
privacy, the mother allowed her daughter to
administer two pregnancy tests in private that
resulted in negative readings.
The teen told investigators she killed the child
because she was "afraid her relationship with her
parents would change," the arrest report said. An
autopsy revealed the baby died of asphyxia from
strangulation and blunt force trauma, officials said.
The girl was arrested Thursday and charged with
first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse. She

possible drug overdose, police said Saturday. Clayton
was found dead by police at about 9 a.m. at a home
in Ecorse, Ecorse police Sgt. Cornelius Herring said.
No further details were released by police. Clayton
was propelled into the spotlight after a local news
outlet learned she had won the game show in
September 2011 but continued to take welfare
benefits. At the time, she said she was entitled to the
payments because she still needed help.
She was charged by Michigan Attorney General Bill
Schuette with felony welfare fraud and was
sentenced to nine months of probation in late July.
She was also ordered to repay the roughly $5,500 in
food and medical assistance she received after
winning the windfall. State law requires that anyone
with income changes on assistance programs report
those changes within 10 days. Clayton was on food
assistance from 2010 to 2012, and despite having a
job for four months in 2011, she did not report the
change to the state, even though it is unclear if that
would have affected her eligibility for benefits.

This is the
text of the Commencement
address by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer and of
Pixar Animation Studios,
delivered on June 12, 2005.
I am honored to be with you today at your
commencement from one of the finest
universities in the world. I never graduated from
college. Truth be told, this is the closest I've ever
gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you
three stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just
The first story is about connecting the dots.
I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6 months,
but then stayed around as a dropin for another 18
months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop
It started before I was born. My biological mother was
a young, unwed college graduate student, and she
decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very
strongly that I should be adopted by college
graduates, so everything was all set for me to be
adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife. Except that
when I popped out they decided at the last minute that
they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on
a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night
asking: "We have an unexpected baby boy; do you
want him?" They said: "Of course." My biological
mother later found out that my mother had never
graduated from college and that my father had never
graduated from high school. She refused to sign the
final adoption papers. She only relented a few months
later when my parents promised that I would someday
go to college.
And 17 years later I did go to college. But I naively
chose a college that was almost as expensive as
Stanford, and all of my working-class parents' savings
were being spent on my college tuition. After six
months, I couldn't see the value in it. I had no idea
what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how
college was going to help me figure it out.
And here I was spending all of the money my parents
had saved their entire life. So I
decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out
OK. It was pretty scary at the time, but looking back it
was one of the best decisions I ever made. The minute
I dropped out I could stop taking the required classes
that didn't interest me, and begin dropping in on the
ones that looked interesting.
It wasn't all romantic. I didn't have a dorm room, so I
slept on the floor in friends' rooms, I returned coke
bottles for the 5¢ deposits to buy food with, and I
would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday
night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna
temple. I loved it. And much of what I stumbled into by
following my curiosity and intuition turned out to be
priceless later on. Let me give you one example:
Reed College at that time offered perhaps the best
calligraphy instruction in the country.
Throughout the campus every poster, every label on
every drawer, was beautifully hand
calligraphed. Because I had dropped out and didn't
have to take the normal classes, I
decided to take a calligraphy class to learn how to do
this. I learned about serif and san serif typefaces,
about varying the amount of space between different
letter combinations, about what makes great
typography great. It was beautiful, historical,
artistically subtle in a way that science can't capture,
and I found it fascinating.
None of this had even a hope of any practical
application in my life. But ten years later, when we
were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all
came back to me. And we designed it all into the Mac.
It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I
had never dropped in on that single course in college,
the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or
proportionally spaced fonts. And since Windows just
copied the Mac, its likely that no personal computer
would have them. If I had never dropped out, I would
have never dropped in on this calligraphy class, and
personal computers might not have the wonderful
typography that they do. Of course it was impossible
to connect the dots looking forward when I was in
college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards
ten years later.
Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you
can only connect them looking
backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will
somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in
something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.
This approach has never let me down, and it has made
all the difference in my life.
My second story is about love and loss.
I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in life.
Woz and I started Apple in my
parents garage when I was 20. We worked hard, and
in 10 years Apple had grown from
just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company
with over 4000 employees. We
had just released our finest creation — the Macintosh
— a year earlier, and I had just turned 30. And then I
got fired. How can you get fired from a company you
started? Well, as Apple grew we hired someone who I
thought was very talented to run the company with
me, and for the first year or so things went well. But
then our visions of the future began to diverge and
eventually we had a falling out. When we did, our
Board of Directors sided with him. So at 30 I was out.
And very publicly out. What had been the focus of my
entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating.
I really didn't know what to do for a few months. I felt
that I had let the previous
generation of entrepreneurs down - that I had
dropped the baton as it was being passed to me. I met
with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to
apologize for screwing up so badly. I was a very public
failure, and I even thought about running away from
the valley. But something slowly began to dawn on me
— I still loved what I did. The turn of events at Apple
had not changed that one bit. I had been rejected, but
I was still in love.
And so I decided to start over.
I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired
from Apple was the best thing that could have ever
happened to me. The heaviness of being successful
was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner
again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter
one of the most creative periods of my life.
During the next five years, I started a company named
NeXT, another company named
Pixar, and fell in love with an amazing woman who
would become my wife. Pixar went
on to create the worlds first computer animated
feature film, Toy Story, and is now the most successful
animation studio in the world. In a remarkable turn of
events, Apple bought NeXT, I returned to Apple, and
the technology we developed at NeXT is at the heart
of Apple's current renaissance. And Laurene and I
have a wonderful family
I'm pretty sure none of this would have happened if I
hadn't been fired from Apple. It was awful tasting
medicine, but I guess the patient needed it.
Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't
lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept
me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find
what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is
for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of
your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do
what you believe is great work. And the only way to do
great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found
it yet, keep looking. Don't settle.
As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you
find it. And, like any great
relationship, it just gets better and better as the years
roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.
My third story is about death.
When I was 17, I read a quote that went something
like: "If you live each day as if it was your last,
someday you'll most certainly be right." It made an
impression on me, and since then, for the past 33
years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and
asked myself: "If today were the last day of my life,
would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And
whenever the answer has been "No" for too many
days in a row, I know I need to change something.
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most
important tool I've ever encountered to help me make
the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all
expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or
failure - these things just fall away in the face of
death, leaving only what is truly important.
Remembering that you are going to die is the best way
I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have
something to lose.
You are already naked. There is no reason not to
follow your heart.
About a year ago I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a
scan at 7:30 in the morning, and it clearly showed a
tumor on my pancreas. I didn't even know what a
pancreas was. The doctors told me this was almost
certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I
should expect to live no longer than three to six
months. My doctor advised me to go home and get my
affairs in order, which is doctor's code for prepare to
die. It means to try to tell your kids everything you
thought you'd have the next 10 years to tell them in
just a few months. It means to make sure everything
is buttoned up so that it will be as easy as possible for
your family. It means to say your goodbyes.
I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that evening I
had a biopsy, where they stuck an endoscope down
my throat, through my stomach and into my
intestines, put a needle into my pancreas and got a
few cells from the tumor. I was sedated, but my wife,
who was there, told me that when they viewed the
cells under a microscope the doctors started crying
because it turned out to be a very rare form of
pancreatic cancer that is curable with surgery. I had
the surgery and I'm fine now.
This was the closest I've been to facing death, and I
hope its the closest I get for a few more decades.
Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a
bit more certainty than when death was a useful but
purely intellectual concept:
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to
heaven don't want to die to get
there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No
one has ever escaped it. And
that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the
single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It
clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now
the new is you, but someday not too long from now,
you will gradually become the old and be cleared
away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone
else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living
with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the
noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner
voice. And most important, have the courage to follow
your heart and intuition. They somehow already know
what you truly want to become. Everything else is
When I was young, there was an amazing publication
called The Whole Earth Catalog,
which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was
created by a fellow named Stewart Brand not far from
here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his
poetic touch. This was in the late 1960's, before
personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was
all made with typewriters, scissors, and polaroid
cameras. It was sort of like Google in paperback form,
35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic,
and overflowing with neat tools and great notions.
Stewart and his team put out several issues of The
Whole Earth Catalog, and then when
it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was
the mid-1970s, and I was your age.
On the back cover of their final issue was a
photograph of an early morning country
road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if
you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words:
"Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish." It was their farewell
message as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.
And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as
you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.
Stay Hungry Stay Foolish.
Thank you all very much.
customary court sitting in Agege for divorce by her
husband, Mr. Sunday Uloko, for embarrassing him in
public, alleged that her husband, a policeman, and his
brother beat her and she lost a five-month-old
pregnancy in the process.
The 22-year-old woman informed the court that her
husband brought a girlfriend to the house claiming the
girl was his sister, but she disbelieved him having seen
his sisters in the past.
She claimed that one of her husband's sisters and the
girlfriend threw her daughter out of the house and
warned her not to come back, adding that they vowed
to kill her if she returned.
" That day coincided with the day l was served with
court summon", she said.
She urged the court to dissolve the union and grant
her custody of the only child.
Earlier in his submission, the 28-year-old police man
told the court that his wife had bad character, and
always looked for trouble with neighbours.
Sunday added that the wife had no respect for any
members of his family and she once vowed to make
him lose favour with his employers.
He therefore urged the court to dissolve the marriage
and grant him custody of the only child. Meanwhile,
the case was adjourned till October 16, 2012.

amid speculation that there was an incident involving
a Qatar Airways Airbus 332 with 284 passengers
onboard on its way to the Murtala Muhammed
International Airport (MMIA), Lagos from Doha,
But investigations by us revealed that
the aircraft had an emergency landing around 1:04
p.m. at MMIA because of low pressure in the tyres in
the under carriage of the aircraft.
Words had earlier gone round that the aircraft
suffered burst tyres.
A reliable source close to air traffic controllers at the
MMIA, who refused to have his name in print,
confirmed that the aircraft did not have burst tyres,
rather the incident happened while the aircraft was
about to land.
He pointed out that the tyres in the under carriage of
the aircraft burst as it made contact with the runway
due to low pressure.
According to him, while the Quatar Airways Airbus 332
aircraft took off in Doha Quatar, the pilot of the airline
discovered that the tyres in the under carriage had
low pressure; so he had to contact the airlines staff in
their station in Nigeria to inform the ATC on duty to
make precautionary arrangement to salvage the
situation on landing.
He further noted that no sooner than the aircraft
landed than it got stuck at the cargo side of the
runway , preventing other planes from using the
runway until it was toed with a push back tractor to
the apron of the airport in order to disembark the
passengers on board.
We gathered further that as soon as the
aircraft landed, it was escorted by four fire tenders
and one operational vehicle to the apron side of the
airport in case of any fire outbreak.
Scores of fire fighters belonging to FAAN, Lagos State
Fire Service and Julius Berger, and ambulance vehicles
were mobilised at the cargo unit of the airport
preparatory to the aircraft landing.
Even, officials of the Lagos State emergency
management agency were fully mobilised to the
airport in the event of a possible crash.
The panic-stricken passengers were reluctant to speak
on their experience. They were rather were grateful
to God for saving them from air crash.
Speaking to reporters at the cargo section of the
Lagos international airport , the media officer of
NEMA, Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, who led the emergency
process on behalf of the agency, explained that they
received a distress call from the pilot of the aircraft
on approach to Lagos, that the aircraft had burst
tyres on the rear side, which would require emergency
management on landing.
Meanwhile, the Director General of Nigeria Civil
Aviation Authority (NCAA), Dr Harold Demuren,
explained that the pilot of the aircraft took
precautionary steps to land the plane.
He confirmed that the aircraft had low pressure in the
tyres in the under carriage.
suspects arrested in connection with the Sunday,
September 9, robbery in Lagos, (a day already tagged
BLACK SUNDAY) security forces are set to launch
investigations into the source of the arms. Some of the
weapons, especially rocket launchers and general
purpose machine guns, Sunday Vanguard can
authoritatively reveal, are normally used by the
military. Seven persons, among them three
policemen, were killed by the robbers who struck in
different parts of the state.
The arrested suspects and recovered arms were
paraded by the police last week.
Lagos State police commissioner, Mr. Umar Manko,
told Sunday Vanguard at the weekend, that the day of
robbery was a bad day in Lagos. Sources in Lagos and
Abuja said the security services are interested in
finding out how the suspected robbers came about the
"Certainly, we want to know how they came about the
arms and ammunition", one of the sources explained.
According to the source, the security agencies are
making efforts to find the source of the weapons.
He went on: "To have found that large quantity of
sophisticated weapons in the hands of people who are
not supposed to have them, we felt very surprised
because these weapons are meant to be found in the
hands of people who are supposed to defend the
territorial integrity of this country.
If they are found in the hands of criminals whose
primary purpose is to destroy, one who has the
responsibility of enforcing the law will not be happy
about it and if I tell you we weren't shocked about the
arms, I am telling you a lie because I couldn't imagine
criminals having that kind of arms in their possession,
including rocket launchers and general purpose
machine guns and high caliber weapons that are not
ordinarily used by security operatives".
Sunday Vanguard was made to understand that the
arms, after investigation, will return to the service they
Another source stated: "The step we will take first is to
identify the sources of these arms. All the arms have
numbers. Maybe at one time or the other, they were
allocated to some security officers. We will try to
locate those which came from the services and we will
return them to the services. And by the time we finish
with that, those we can not identify the source, of
course, will be destroyed. There are procedures for
Lagos State police commissioner, who spoke
exclusively to Sunday Vanguard, said his men were on
the trail of other suspects in the Lagos robbery who
are still on the run.
Manko's words: "We will make efforts to get them and
we are already making efforts to get them. I hardly
beat my chest. People only need to be patient with us.
When the robbery happened, we told you that it
wasn't going to take us time to arrest the master
minds. By the grace of Allah, today, we have some of
them. Those who are still on the run we are going to
get them wherever they are. They might be at large
now but their arrest will mean a lot to residents of the
state and security agents. We will not go to bed. We
will go after the robbers with all our strength".
On what the police are doing to make Lagos safe, he
said, "We are doing all we can to checkmate criminals,
but that is not the duty of the police alone. It is the
duty of everyone in the state. I think it is the
responsibility of everyone in the state to look out for
criminals and arms and alert the security agencies. In
Lagos State, we are collaborating with all the security
agencies to ensure that we secure the residents. So, it
is a task, a very huge one for that matter for security
agencies in Lagos to ensure that we checkmate

Duchess of Cambridge's vagina debate, but Danish
tabloid Se Og Hor says they're not responsible.
Se Og Hor editor Kim Henningsen claims he only
published pictures of Kate in a 16-page spread on
September 20, and that all reports of the tabloid
publishing new bottomless photos are just rumors.
So where did the bottomless photos come from?
What's unclear is whether Se Og Hor published the more
revealing pics over a week ago — and we somehow
failed to notice — or if Henningsen is denying that the
tabloid published the images at all. It seems unlikely that
photos of Kate's nethers, however blurry, would have
escaped our attention.
It's also possible that Se Og Hor is just trying to save
face, although that goes against the devil-may-care
attitude Henningsen displayed when last asked about the
