World Richest Man, Bill Gates Happy To Meet Nigeria's President, Goodluck Jonathan

According to Bill Gates, he was happy he had a good meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria with regards to Polio cases in Nigeria which are down 50% from this time last year. Below is the report from Bill gateswebsite:

It's the kickoff to U.N. Week here in New York, and while locals like to complain about the traffic (I can see why), it is a great opportunity for me to meet with leaders from parts of the world where our foundation is working—to talk about global health and development projects

I started off on Monday morning meeting Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan. Besides our work with our partners on polio in Nigeria, we are also working with the government to improve their agricultural sector. I've written before about China's potential to help developing countries in Africa learn from its successes, but in Nigeria we have a really interesting project just getting off the ground where Brazil is working with Nigeria to bring up agricultural productivity in their northern Guinea savannah. Brazil has done an amazing job helping their own farmers in the Cerrado region to improve their yields, which brings tremendous economic and social benefits. 

President Jonathan assembled a meeting of experts in New York and we spent a couple of hours reviewing their progress and discussing next steps. I also had a chance to catch up with President Jonathan about the work we're doing with our partners on polio, which is showing encouraging progress. Nigeria had 43 confirmed cases of polio in the first 8 months of 2013, a drop of 50 percent from the same period last year. Finishing the job is quite an undertaking, so having the President's support is a big deal. I was pleased we got to spend as much time together as we did.

EXPLICIT PICTURES: (18+) Raped Woman Found Dead With Sugar Cane Forced Into Her

29 year old Vanusia Silva Pereira was a druggie and druggies don’t tend to live very long in Brazil. Brazilian drug dealers don’t care if you’re young or old, man or woman – if you owe them money and don’t pay up in time, or if you try to traffic on their turf, they’re gonna kill you. Although by the looks of it, if it’s a woman they’re gonna kill, they may as well have a little raping session with her first. She’s dead meat anyway, putting that snatch to good use for the last time kind of makes sense. I’m sure it did to them. The horrific crime happened in Arataca, state of Bahia, Brazil. Vanusia Silva Pereira was taken to a vacant lot, punched in the face, raped and then had a sugar cane forced up her snatch. The victim’s father, identified as Mr. Wilson, an agricultural laborer told police that Vanusia chose bad company to hang out with lately and that was her demise. Police do not suspect that her murder was a crime of passion, however coroner who examined the body said the woman ha…
