And get this -- her NBA star beau plans on flying into town this weekend to ask Kris Jenner for Khloe's hand in marriage! True to form, though, the momager knows all about the plan and has already purchased a Range Rover for Thompson as a "welcome to the family" gift."

Facebook beats analysts' expectations for the sixth straight quarter

Image
h Facebook on Wednesday turned in yet another stellar earnings report that topped analysts’ estimates across the board.
For the third quarter ending September 30, the world’s largest social network reported revenue of $7.01 billion with earnings per share of $1.09 versus analyst estimates of $6.92 billion and $0.97 in revenue and profit, respectively. Revenue was up 56 percent compared to the $4.5 billion Facebook earned in the same period a year ago.
As The Wall Street Journal highlights, this is the sixth straight quarter in which Facebook has topped analysts’ expectations.
Facebook said it now has 1.79 billion monthly active users, up from 1.71 billion last quarter. That’s a mind-boggling figure when you consider that the global population sits somewhere around the 7.4 billion mark meaning nearly one in four people on the planet are now using Facebook.
Facebook’s mobile advertising unit continues to serve as the social network’s cash cow. Advertising as a whole accounte…

FG may sell three refineries after rehabilitation--says Kachikwu

Image
Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, has disclosed that the Federal government may sell the three refineries located in Kaduna, Warri and Port Harcourt after they have been fixed and dimmed operationally efficient.
Kachikwu disclosed this while speaking to state house correspondents in Abuja: He said:

“The feeling of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) and the President is that we should first get the refineries to be efficient before we talk about privatisation, otherwise we will be selling scraps. In their present state nobody is going to offer you serious money. A huge amount of investment is going into this." The minister further explained that apart from this, there were other issues that could determine the final decision of the government on the refineries; the labour issues, for example, are some of the issues that must be addressed if such proposal would sail through.

He noted that the government has thought out other possible means of get…

Wole Soyinka says he will tear up his green card if Trump wins

Wole Soyinka says he will tear up his green card if Trump wins Wole Soyinka, the Nobel literature laureate who currently lives in the US and works as a scholar-in-residence at New York University’s Institute of African American Affairs told students at Oxford University that if Donald Trump is elected president of the United States next week, he will leave the country.
While giving the seminar to the college students, he said:
“If in the unlikely event he does win, the first thing he’ll do is to say that all green-card holders must reapply to come back into the US. Well, I’m not waiting for that.” “The moment they announce his victory, I will cut my green card myself and start packing up."

Man who collected R40,000 from Oscar Pistorius to wipe off his criminal conviction bags 4 years sentence

Man who collected R40,000 from Oscar Pistorius to wipe off his criminal conviction bags 4 years sentence Tshifhiwa Radzhadzhi, the conman who promised to wipe off the criminal conviction of South African Paralympain, Oscar Pistorius for R40,000 has been sentenced to four years in prison.
According to Sowetan, the authorities reported that the 33 year old who posed as a prosecutor was arrested in a sting operation on March 18, while receiving the money from Pistorius.
Radzhadzhi offered to make the case ‘disappear’ but got busted after the athlete who shot and killed  his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013, alerted the police.

Speaking to Pressmen on Tuesday, the spokesman of  Directorate of Priority Crimes Investigation, Lieutenant Colonel Robert Netshiunda said that Radzhadzhi was sentenced to four years in prison at the Specialised Commercial Crime Court in Pretoria on Monday, after being convicted of corruption and impersonating a prosecutor

Thread Xeon is Building a 32 Monster PC for Less Than the Price of a Flagship Core i7

Image
It's been two years since Intel released their first octa-core desktop processor, the Haswell-E based Core i7-5960X, which until just recently was the most powerful consumer grade processor available. That title now belongs to the equally impressive but even more expensive 10-core Core i7-6950X. Out of the box, the 6950X is 20 to 30% faster than the Core i7-5960X in applications that can use those extra cores, however at $1650 it's also absurdly expensive.
Granted most would consider $1000+ an unreasonable amount of money to pay for a desktop processor -- but for some, the price to pay for these isn’t as important as the performance they deliver. Thanks to its 8-core design aided by Hyper-Threading, the 5960X is a multi-threading monster, and a popular choice for those doing a lot of video editing, particularly with 4K content.
But here's the thing. Before Intel graced us with the 8-core i7-5960X, there were server-grade 8-core Xeon processors on the market w…
