    In June, the Big 12 boasted record revenue sharing and a championship game restart and six weeks later dropped the bomb that commissioner Bob Bowlsby had been charged with researching expansion candidates. Pollard said there was not a vote taken because it was a consensus agreement among school presidents, though the athletic directors were not in the room.

Bitrus said the freed girls were used as domestic workers and porters but were not sexually abused. But the girls may face less stigma than others abducted by Boko Haram because of widespread support and the worldwide attention on their plight, she added.

    Amaechi: Minister's aide denies Justice Okoro's claims, threatens lawsuit

    Okoro, whose house was raided by the DSS on October 8, alleged that Amaechi had approached him to compromise the governorship election appeals from Akwa Ibom, Abia and River states, but that he declined to fall in line. But in a swift response, Amaechi described the claims of Justice Okoro in the petition as concocted lies. This is a cheap attempt, albeit, political move to drag the name of Amaechi into something he knows nothing about.

    That's a pretty timely and apt description of the rightwing populist appeal of Donald Trump, who promises disaffected white, working-class voters a return to greatness by pushing other people back down in the social hierarchy.
