Arnold Schwarzenegger Kicks Off Lecture as Think Tank Guru at USC

In a symposium at University of Southern California, the 'Terminator' actor takes on political issues and the influence of the entertainment industry on the society.

Arnold Schwarzenegger continued to expand his career. From an army member to a body builder to an actor to a governor, he now becomes a professor at University of Southern California. He launched the USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy, committing $20 million from his own pocket and those of others.

The 65-year-old star tackled today's issues such as health care, global warming, education, fiscal and economic policy as well as political reform. To start it off, he held a day-long symposium on Monday, September 24. He invited high-profile politicians and media executives to join him on the panel to talk about politics and industry.

In the morning panel, the actor had a discussion about political issues with the likes of John McCain. "The history of this country has been corruption, reform, corruption, reform," said the 2008 Republican presidential candidate of the factor of the next national downfall. "There are going to be major scandals because too many millions of dollars are washing around in political campaigns."

When returning in the afternoon after a break, the former governor of California delved into the topics of entertainment and social change with media experts including president and chief operating officer of Universal Studios and NBCUniversal, Ron Meyer. During the discussion, the panelists agreed that the media played important part in shaping culture in the society.

"The power of films and television is enormous," Arnold said. "I think it is much more powerful than politicians will ever be." Ron added, "We have the chance as an industry ... to tell a story that can make an impact on society and change the way people think and feel." Rob Friedman, co-chairman of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, chimed in, "We continue to try to educate, to inform and to change attitudes."

'The Voice' Usher & Shakira newly announced judges

MTV News catches up with newly announced judge and host Carson Daly to talk about season four of the reality singing competition.

While there is still plenty of excitement and entertainment to come from the third season of "The Voice," we can't help but already be psyched about the fourth season, newly announced judges Usher and Shakira.

MTV News was lucky enough to catch up with "Voice" host Carson Daly recently to hear his thoughts on the intriguing shift in judges.

"We love it. We've been working hard at it," Daly told us on the red carpet of the Emmys on Sunday. "We knew Christina [Aguilera] and Cee Lo were going to go tour, we wanted to find two people that are big musicians and artists who are trying to give back and help discover somebody and, really, Usher is that. That's his business model, that's what he does, so we're excited to have them both."

As for the "Without You" singer, he can't wait to get started on the new gig, even though it's quite a ways away. "Man, you have no idea," Usher told us of his excitement. "I have not spoken to [current judges] Adam and Blake. I have not spoken to anyone with regards to [the show]. It's still new news, but I'm really excited about it. It's the type of show that I feel really sets up an artist and makes it about what matters most first: the voice. Everything else comes afterwards in terms of the mentors; that's what gives the personality, gives the opportunity to be an artist who will excel and transcend culture and also be able to tell an incredible story in music. So I like being able to be at that place. I love being a mentor."

Both Usher and Daly are also equally enthusiastic about this season's crop of talent, particularly recent contestant Avery Fisher who auditioned with one of Usher's songs and knocked it out of the park.

"I love Avery [Wilson]," Daly said, but added that it was still too early to name his favorites. "It's not narrowed down enough yet, but I love that Melanie Martinez, I thought [her version of 'Toxic'] was cool too."

NOA honour the 7 police officers who investigated Cynthia's murder

The National Orientation Agency on Friday September 21st honoured the seven police who investigated and arrested the men who murdered Cynthia Osokogu in a hotel in Festac in July 2012.

The seven police officers - ACP Damien Okoro, the Area Commander 'Festac', DSP Imoh Gregory, Woman ASP Mariam Ogunmolasuyi, ASP Agbaje Yakubu, Inspector Edo Joseph, Woman Sergeant Patience Biokoro and Sergeant Frank Okorobon all of Area 'E' Festac, Lagos, were awarded 'NOA Civic Recognition Award'.

The director general of NOA said the agency decided to honour the police officers because they did an excellent job. The DG said:

    The whole nation was gripped with anger, fear and rage when this ugly, unfortunate incident occurred. These patriotic officers stuck out their necks to unravel the mystery. What you did restored Nigeria to the rest of the civilized world. You also restored some sort of succour to the family by arresting those that committed the dastardly act. When people are making such efforts, you must tell them they are doing well. It is for this reason we are recognizing you".

Well, it's their job na, abi? #justsaying! But maybe in Nigeria police officers need this kind of award to encourage them to do their jobs properly!

Actor Ben Vereen Divorcing Wife Of 36 Years!

Tony Award-winning actor and legendary hoofer Ben Vereen (pictured) has decided to call his 36-year marriage a wrap, reports TMZ.
SEE ALSO:  Alex Haley’s Miniseries ‘Roots’ Wins 9 Emmys On This Day 35 Years Ago
Vereen, who is best known for his unforgettable portrayal of the character “Chicken George” in the 1977 epic saga “Roots,” reportedly filed a petition on Thursday morning citing “irreconcilable differences.”  Vereen is also allegedly asking the court not to pay his wife spousal support.
While Nancy and Vereen reportedly met on the set of one of his plays and tied the knot in July 1976, according to court papers, he and his estranged wife, Nancy, have been living separately since March of this year.
Together, he and Nancy have endured the death of his 16-year-old daughter, Naja, who was killed when the vehicle she was a passenger in was struck by a tractor-trailer on a New Jersey highway ramp back in 1987.  Vereen has stated that, at the time, he could not cope with his daughter’s death and wanted to take his own life, so he began dabbling with mind-numbing addictions that eventually took a dangerous toll on him.

And the couple remained together even during Vereen’s self-destructive plunge that resulted in an obsession with liquor and cocaine that he just could not shake.  He wound up entering a rehab facility in order to combat his addictions, and has since regained his spiritual balance.
Nancy also supported Vereen, when in 1992, while walking along a dark road one morning near his Malibu home, he was struck by a large SUV and almost died: While the actor was pronounced dead when he arrived at the hospital, miraculously, his life was spared, although he was told that he would have to find another profession because he would never sing, much less walk or dance again.
Ten months after his doom-and-gloom prediction, Vereen was back on Broadway and co-starring with the late Gregory Hines in the Broadway hit “Jelly’s Last Jam.”
SEE ALSO Soul Food Stymies Low-Salt Efforts
While Vereen was married once to Andrea Townsley back in 1966, there’s now talk that there could be someone else waiting in the wings for the veteran performer. Songstress Brenda Russell’s name has been tossed around, but at press time, this has not been confirmed.

Chad Johnson Cries On ‘Inside the NFL,’ Says He’s ‘Lost Everything’

Sidelined NFL player Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson (pictured) recently opened up about how his off-the-field mistakes on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL.”
RELATED: No Jail Time for Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson!
As the former Miami Dolphins wide receiver sat down with the show’s hosts, James Brown and Chris Collinsworth, this week Johnson appeared to want to lay his cards on the table and offer an interview that was honest and heartfelt about his tumultuous time with ex-wife Evelyn Lozada.
Admitting to past mistakes and their consequences, Johnson said:
“When you get a humble Chad Johnson that has lost everything and has to work his way back up, that’s a big deal,” admitted Johnson. “Because you’re not getting that same individual, you’re not getting that same fun guy….  I gotta prove a point. That’s the scariest thing in the world to have someone that has that drive.”
On being forced to take anger management classes, Johnson said, “I’m taking classes, anger management classes. I’m trying to find out how can I channel my anger when I’m in situations to where I would pop off? How can I defuse those situations?”
The former “Dancing With the Stars” standout also talked out about how he now feels about losing Evelyn:
“Being married, being a husband, being a lover, was an honor,” Johnson said in the interview. “And I lost that. And you know that saying … ‘You never know what you have until it’s gone.’ And now I finally know what they mean. I lost two of the things that really meant the most to me. That someone completed my world, completed me, period. But I just hadn’t made that transition to where I needed to be the best man that I could, or best husband that I could. I didn’t make it all the way, fully.”
Johnson, who claims that he is taking an introspective reassessment of himself, is now seemingly on a road to change:
“Chad has to work on Chad,” he says. “Chad has to go deep down inside and figure out where he went wrong. At what point did you lose focus on what’s most important? Like especially the game of football.  At some point I had drifted off track away from that and being one of the best at what I do.”

Wife Kills Herself, 2 Boys After Husband Allegedly Threatens Divorce

A 34-year-old mother killed herself and her two young boys after her husband threatened to leave her, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.

The Tampa Bay Tribune reports that Murphy Brown arrived home early Saturday morning to find his wife, Dawn Brown, and two children dead. Dawn reportedly hanged herself from a bedroom ceiling fan with an electrical cord.

As for the cause of death of the two boys, 9-year-old Zander and 5-year-old Zayden (pictured above), authorities are not releasing any details. But, a friend of the husband reportedly found the boys tucked in their beds. The medical examiner’s office will determine the official cause of death after an autopsy is complete.

William Lavold, Murphy’s neighbor, says the possible murder-suicide has shaken the husband to his core. “He can’t function,” Lavold said. “He can’t figure it out. He’s done in. He’s really done in.”

The couple had been experiencing hard times lately, according to the Tribune.

Dawn didn’t work. And Murphy was struggling to make ends meet repairing cars when he could. Since Friday, the Brown’s electricity had been shut off for days. Their home has been in foreclosure proceedings at least three times since 2002, with the latest being in February. Dawn was charged with welfare fraud on June 8, 2011, under her maiden name of Dawn Michelle Barylski. On Sept. 12, she entered a plea of not guilty to the charge.

The Tribune has more:

    After her arrest, Brown stopped taking the classes she needed to become a teacher.

    “It ruined her life,” Lavold said.

    “She loved kids so much,” he said. “It’s hard to see now, but she wanted to take care of children. She wanted more kids.”

    But Brown couldn’t get a job with a felony arrest on her record, and she withdrew, Lavold said.

    “She lived in the house, and didn’t go out and do anything,” he said. “She’d take the kids to school and home; she’d go out for groceries. Mostly, she sat and read books online. That was all she did.”

    Now, Murphy Brown can’t bring himself to go home, and he doesn’t have the money to bury his boys.

    Lavold and other neighbors are banding together to help. They plan to essentially gut the house and sell off anything of value to pay for the funerals. Everything else will be thrown out, Lavold said.

    “We are going to strip the house out,” he said. “We will do whatever we can to turn this house into something different. …It’s the only thing he has left, but he can’t come home to it.”

    Neighbors are looking for donations to help with the renovation, including an industrial-sized trash bin and volunteers to help with the work.

    Lavold also is collecting donations on his website,

    “One-hundred percent of the donations are going to Murphy,” Lavold said.

Of all of the questions connected to this horrible story, there is one that seems to most puzzling to Lavold.

“What we’re not understanding is why she decided to take her children with her,” Lavold said to The Tribune. “Nobody knows. This is what we’ve all been asking. (Murphy) doesn’t know.”

Kanye West Will Not Show His Collection During Paris Fashion Week (Not So G.O.O.D. At Fashion?)

Awww, no long faces. Kanye West unfortunately will not be presenting a third collection this Paris Fashion Week, for reasons unidentified. His PR agency, Karla Otto recently confirmed the news to WWD, and we assume Kanye’s feelings are hurt, since his two previous collections weren’t well received. Who knows if he will give fashion another try or not, but he’s been keeping busy lately. He’s been spotted with his lady Kim Kardashian at other fashion shows, his recent G.O.O.D. Music collaborative album, Cruel Summer and of course those impending rumors of alleged adult tapes threatening to be released. Ouch! It doesn’t seem like the best week for Kanye all around Cruel Summer has received mixed reviews. But the good news is that he can always stick to designing shoes. His Air Yeezy’s and Giuseppe Zanotti collaborations were somewhat successful, albeit

7 Unfailing Laws of Happy Relationships

Most think that relationships exist to make them happy. When they find that special person, they believe that love will naturally grow. But in relationships we encounter everything, challenges, joy, fulfillment, loss. Yet, despite all training in life, we seldom learn about the knitty gritty of relationships, how to build the relationship in a way that brings out the best in all.
To start this process, there are 7 simple laws we can learn and use. These laws will act as guideposts, helping us to choose wisely and to avoid costly mistakes.
Law #1 – There is never a lack of relationships. Relationships are abundantly available wherever you are.
Many live with the idea that love is scarce -there’s not enough to go around and that they must cling to whatever comes their way. This idea can cause them to get involved with the wrong person, or stay in a relationship that is toxic for them. It is crucial to realize that relationships are plentiful. (If you don’t have one, it is because you are keeping it away). It is never necessary to cling to someone out of fear of being alone.
Law # 2 Know Who You Are And What You Really Want
Many enter relationships hoping that it will give them a life, or make them feel better about themselves. They may want their partner to take care of them, or give them the approval they’ve been denied.
But it is of the utmost importance to know and respect who you are, to enjoy your own company and be aware of your own values and goals. Otherwise, you can lost in a relationship, become a pawn in someone else’s world.. A healthy relationship is an expression of two people, both equally valuable. In this kind of relationship you discover all you have to offer and how to offer it.
Law #3 Don’t Keep Choosing The Wrong Person For You
Some find, to their amazement, that they choose the same partner, over and over again. Relationships patterns repeat as well. This is called the repetition compulsion. It is the unconscious need to repeat a situation over and over until we master it or it turns out the way we want it to. This compulsion keeps some people stuck in a bind.
If you are caught in this, see what this pattern is doing for you. Actively choose different places to go and individuals who are different from those you usually meet. Become stronger than the pattern. Turn you life around.
Law #4 – Enjoy Honest Communication
Without the ability to say No, we cannot say Yes. Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not to make another happy. Don’t give up that which is meaningful to you for the sake of a friendship. The bedrock of all happy relationships is mutual respect and acceptance and open, honest, communication. Ask for what is important to you. Find out what is really going on for your partner. When a person really feels listened to and accepted they feel loved.
Law #5 Don’t Try To Change Or Fix Other Person
Let everyone be who they are, including yourself. So many of us are obsessed with changing or fixing everyone. This is not friendship, but manipulation. . Many believe that if the person cared enough, they would certainly change for them. This is not so. Changing another is not your job. Find out who the person you are with really is. If someone feels accepted, they can change themselves, if they want to.
Law # 6- Know Difference Between Real and Counterfeit Love.
Feeling happy, high, excited or attached to a person, feeling possessive or dependent is not love. It’s infatuation, ego thrills or dependency, usually based upon fantasy. Inevitably, fantasies fade. People then feel that the love is over. It is not over, it’s just been a form of counterfeit love. We must learn the difference between real and counterfeit love, between love and fantasy.
Counterfeit love always involves struggle and pain. Real love never does. Real love is a verb. It is not based simply upon feelings, which come and go, but actions. It is important to learn “to”do love”. Do love and you will be loved. in return.
Law #7 – See the Best In Others – And In Yourself.
What we see in others, we bring out in them. If we focus upon their negative points (and let them know about them), you can be certain the negativity will increase. When we focus upon what is good in that person and let them know, this brings out the best. The better a person then feels about themselves, the less need they have for negativity. Often it can just fall away on its own.
Law #7 1/2- The Master Law
When They Come We Welcome, When They Go We Do Not Pursue
Understand that each relationship lasts for a certain time. You’ve come together to learn from one another, to share, enjoy and often move along. This is not rejection, but growth and change. Change is natural and inevitable. Don’t see it as failure. Don’t see it as loss. Don’t try to control when time comes to go. Realize that if the person is supposed to be with you longer, they will return on their own. The greatest art of relationships is to know how to let go. When someone new comes welcome them, when it’s time to let go, thank the person for all you’ve received from them and let go.

Sanusi’s N50million Gift Tears King College Old Boys Apart

…. Allegations Of Corruption Rock Sports Pavilion Project
An alleged N50 Million gift from the Central Bank Governor, CBN, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, has pitched members of the Hakeem Bello-Osagie’s led King College Lagos Old Boys Association against themselves.
Many unsavoury allegations and counter-allegations are currently being bandied about within the Association and aggrieved members are gearing up for a show-down at the Association’s next AGM, scheduled to hold this Sunday, September 23, 3012, at which many of them intend to demand for an Independent Audit of the Association’s Finances.
We gathered exclusively from sources that members are at daggers drawn over several issues relating to finances of the Association amongst other issues, particularly the manner in which a N50 million naira donation from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) courtesy of Governor of the bank, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, towards the construction of a sports pavilion in the Lagos Island secondary school was allegedly misappropriated and siphoned using a shady contractor.
The donation was made around 2009 during the school’s centenary celebration.
Some members of the Association, which consists literally of “who is who” in Nigeria’s socio-economic and political space, are angered by the discovery that bulk of the N50 million naira donation from the CBN was siphoned by some members of the past executive.
The sports pavilion project has since been abandoned after the previous executive paid out the entire N50 million of which N43 million was drawn from the Association’s bank account within a space of six weeks.
“The level of corruption and misappropriation perpetrated in the sports pavilion project is disheartening,” one Old Boy said. “The project is not even near 20% completion. Where did all the money go?” he asked.
“The issue of one of the VPs who collected money from a contractor and claimed to spend it on the Association without documentation subsists.& #8232;This VP (Mr. Lawanson) who admitted to collecting the sum and spending same without documentation (minutes of the meeting where this occurred is available at the Secretariat) and the present treasurer (Mr. Idike who wants to be Gen. Secretary) colluded to make these payments back then.
Furthermore, Mr. Idike cannot attest to any audit carried out in his capacity as auditor (which would have discovered the fraudulent disbursement of the said N50m…),” another aggrieved member blogged on a website where members openly made claims and counter claims.
Sources said that members of the Port Harcourt branch of the association alongside some other chapters have signaled their desire to attend the AGM on Sunday where they would submit that all members of the present executive step aside while an independent audit of the association’s financial records are reconciled.
King’s College Lagos was founded on September 20, 1909. It was previously known as King’s School. Some of its prominent alumni include former Vice President Alex Ekwueme, Late Sir Emeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Late Chief Anthony Enahoro, Late Sir Adetokumbo Ademola, Late Justice Victor Ovie Whiskey, and Mr. Peterside Atedo, amongst others.

Lady Gaga Turns Rapper on ‘Cake Like Lady Gaga’

Lady Gaga nearly sent her Little Monsters into cardiac arrest with the leak of a mysterious new track called “Cake Like Lady Gaga.” The pop star turns trap star on the boastful record that would make the Based God proud. The typically humble superstar stunts and snatches wigs, rhyming about AKs, her iced-out chain, “burqa swag,” and 30 million Twitter followers.
“F**k your life, you bitch ass trick,” she spits. “I roll all that good shit, you rollin’ on that Reggie Bush.”
According to SPIN, the original track was released by Gaga’s producer DJ White Shadow on Twitter. He asked fans to submit their own lyrics to the beat before posting a slowed-down version and writing, “In an unusual twist of fate, the winner has asked not to be announced!”
Gaga’s makeup artist also tweeted the link and it wasn’t long before some tech-savvy fans sped up the original to discover what appears to be Mother Monster in all her glory.
If you’re not a fan of Gaga’s hip-hop swag, don’t worry. It’s likely that she’s just having fun and won’t include it on her upcoming album ARTPOP.

Some people called her post rubbish but I believe she is very wise for asking that question, there is always sense in every question asked here.. Now let's talk about anal sex

Human physiology makes it clear that the body was not designed to accommodate this activity. The rectum is significantly different from the vagina with regard to suitability for penetration by a penis. The vagina has natural lubricants and is supported by a network of muscles. It is composed of a mucus membrane with a multi-layer stratified squamous epithelium that allows it to endure friction without damage and to resist the immunological actions caused by semen and sperm. In comparison, the anus is a delicate mechanism of small muscles that comprise an "exit-only" passage. With repeated trauma, friction and stretching, the sphincter loses its tone and its ability to maintain a tight seal. Consequently, anal intercourse leads to leakage of fecal material that can easily become chronic.

The potential for injury is exacerbated by the fact that the intestine has only a single layer of cells separating it from highly vascular tissue, that is, blood. Therefore, any organisms that are introduced into the rectum have a much easier time establishing a foothold for infection than they would in a vagina. The single layer tissue cannot withstand the friction associated with penile penetration, resulting in traumas that expose both participants to blood, organisms in feces, and a mixing of bodily fluids.

Furthermore, ejaculate has components that are immunosuppressive. In the course of ordinary reproductive physiology, this allows the sperm to evade the immune defenses of the female. Rectal insemination of rabbits has shown that sperm impaired the immune defenses of the recipient.23 Semen may have a similar impact on humans.

Chlamydia trachomatis
Giardia lamblia
Herpes simplex virus
Human immunodeficiency virus
Human papilloma virus
Isospora belli
Viral hepatitis types B & C

Sexual transmission of some of these diseases is so rare in the exclusively heterosexual population as to be virtually unknown. Others, while found among heterosexual and homosexual practitioners, are clearly predominated by those involved in homosexual activity.
Anal intercourse also puts men at significant risk for anal cancer. Anal cancer is the result of infection with some subtypes of human papilloma virus (HPV), which are known viral carcinogens.

Other physical problems associated with anal intercourse are:

anal fissures
anorectal trauma

Kanye West Tweet Naked Picture of Kim Kardashian? (Pic Included)

It was written on Leadership Newspaper  bold and clear that Kanye West Tweeted a picture of Kim Kardashian ( See Leadership Story Here)

See Picture and true story after the cut!

I just thought it was too absurd to be true, so I did a due deligence check,  and here's what I found.

The woman in the pic appears to be porn star Amia Miley.  Miley tweeted the same photo of herself on her twitter account in 2011, and she tells TMZ it's her.  She also says she's never hooked up with Kanye.

Second, although the pic has been sent around with credit to Kanye, I've learned it was never posted on Kanye's account.  A source close to Kanye confirms ... he didn't do it. So Dear Peeps, it's not Kim oh!

iPhone SMS spoofing bug reportedly fixed in iOS 6

iPhone 5 stock
A serious bug which allowed senders to spoof SMS messages on iOS, causing them to appear as if they were sent from a different number, has reportedly been fixed in iOS 6, released to consumers yesterday. The news comes via a tweet from jailbreaker Joshua Hill (a.k.a. p0sixninja), who also noted that the latest version of the mobile operating system includes an "insane number of security fixes."
The spoofing problem was first brought to light in mid-August by security researcher pod2g, who noted that the issue was still present in the beta 4 version of iOS 6. It works by exploiting a part of the SMS specification known as the Reply To field, which goes unused in most implementations, but is displayed in iOS. As pod2g pointed out, "most carriers don't check this part of the message, which means one can write whatever he wants in this section: a special number like 911, or the number of somebody else."

Fed. Govt. 17-storey building where criminals rape, torture, kill their victims & share their loot is uncovered in Lagos

An abandoned 17-storey building where criminals rape, kill victims and share their loot, has been uncovered in Oto-Awori Local Council Development Area, Lagos.
The uncompleted building, has been a notorious hideout for criminals in the area. Residents said that criminals usually share their loot inside the uncompleted building.
Recently, a security man attached to the LCDA identified as Moshood Afolabi, was found dead in the 17- storey building after he was declared missing by the family.

His disappearance was said to have been reported to the local vigilance group by his family after four days of searching for him when he did not return from his usual night watch.

Afolabi’s body was subsequently found in the building in Oto-Awori LCDA after four days of fruitless efforts by members of his family to locate his whereabouts. According to his wife, Raimot Afolabi, “I went to report to Baba Saka who is the leader of the vigilance group my husband worked with that he had not returned home for two days from his duty post.
“He was surprised when I told him what happened and raised an alarm. He ordered his boys to carry out a thorough search. His corpse was found in that 17-storey building. That monstrous building was responsible for my husband’s death,” said the mother of four.

Saka, the leader of the vigilance group, said when Afolabi’s wife reported that her husband had not returned from work, he organised a search party within the neighbourhood and on the second day, he received a call from someone that a body was found in the building. “We quickly rushed to see if the body was that of a known person. When we got there, we recognised the body to be that of Moshood. We then deposited his remains in a mortuary for further investigation,” he said.
A community leader in the area, Alhaji Uthman Sekoni said that a lot of criminal activities had been happening in the building with boys of shady character seen coming out or going into the place. “That was where members of Odu’a Peoples Congress, OPC, arrested people they suspected to be criminals. An officer that was attached to the community police was found dead in that same building.
“Just last week, a girl was thrown down naked after being raped by some heartless people. That place has been a hideout for criminals who terrorise our community. They go in there to share the loot stolen from us.
“We have also been hearing gun shots from the place. It is amazing that security agents have not cared to raid the place and clean it up. It is a haven for armed robbers and ritualists,” he said.
The building belongs to the Federal Government and that it has been abandoned for over 20 years. The building is associated with all forms of criminal activities and the people around there called on the government to do something urgently about it.
