They decried the hike in tuition fees by the University of Maiduguri from N30,000 to N100,000.…
There was a peace about Kevin Hill as he watched himself die. And it's a memory he now has after doctors resuscitated him and turned his death into a near-death experience (NDE). "I knew I was bleeding. I knew it was serious," he tells The Mirror. "The staff kept coming in and out to stop the bleeding. I knew I had died. I was separate from my body." That's how the memory ends, with the current reality of him being quite alive. "I just went to sleep, and I woke up alive and the bleeding had stopped," he says. "I…
Every year, Nevada gets a little bigger. Tectonic forces — movements that cause a change in the Earth's crust — expands the state’s surface by about two acres annually, or about the size of 32 tennis courts.

Andrew Clark had informed his wife before they married 10 years ago that they would not be having a girl — due to a long line of male-dominated births in his family. "I didn't believe him because it's a 50/50 chance of having a boy or a girl," Carolyn Clark, 36, told Fox…
