Jane Ihuoma Ottah, a 28-year-old student of the Rivers State University of Science and Technology got the shock of her life January 2015 when she was expelled from the university over claims of speech and hearing challenges. Jane was an 100-level student of the Department of Educational Foundation. The post [PHOTO] Meet The Pretty Lady Expelled From Rivers State University Over Speech & Hearing Problem appeared first on LATEST NIGERIAN NEWS BREAKING HEADLINES NEWSPAPERS. The worldwide trade in frog legs is massive, and is undoubtedly a significant contributor to the decline and extinction of amphibian populations worldwide. The trade in wild-caught frogs has been driving frog populations to near extinction since the 19th century, when the Californian gold miners decimated populations of California Red-Legged Frogs (Rana draytonii) in the 1800's.
Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis in the live frog trade of Telmatobius (Anura: Ceratophryidae) in the tropical Andes (Catenazzi et al. Even in the most developed countries, there are virtually no protocols in place to ensure that diseased amphibians do not get imported or exported. The photo below (courtesy of Alejandro Rosselli) is from a street market in Jakarta, Indonesia. In 1910 Detroit produced, shipped, and consumed six million pairs of legs according to Bill Loomis. In India, the Indian Bullfrog (Hoplobatrachus tigerinus) is known as the Jumping Chicken, and is systematically hunted during the monsoon season -- even though it is illegal.
The C-ville Weekly newspaper in Charlottesville, VA published an article promoting the eating of frog legs but failed to mention the ecological damage caused by the frog legs trade, so SAVE THE FROGS! The Daytona News-Journal printed an account of a casual meal at an Old Florida style restaurant. Maybe the diners and restaurant owners simply did not know that today, one-third of all amphibian species are on the verge of extinction. A worldwide organization called Save the Frogs is doing all it can to call attention to frogs' plight and stop their slide into oblivion from pollution, disease, habitat loss and over-harvesting.

One of the world's largest consumers of frog legs, many of which are imported from neighboring Southeast Asian countries, China also has a proliferating frog farm industry.
In April 2010, San Francisco's Restaurant Gary Danko became the first restaurant in the world to remove frog legs from their menus. France nearly ate their native frogs to extinction, which is why they are no longer allowed to eat native frogs. The FDA has banned the importation of frog legs from all but one Bangladeshi company due to Salmonella. The more people know about the problems associated with the frog legs trade, the less demand there will be for frog legs. Bill Daley of the Chicago Tribune wrote this story about Restaurant Gary Danko removing frog legs from their menu. Catherine Vincent wrote this article that appeared on the cover page of France's largest paper. John Tesh helped get the word out about our campaign to end the ecologically damaging frog legs trade.
LAGOS (Sundiata Post) – Determined to contribute to solving the unemployment problem in the country, Fidelity Bank Plc, in strategic partnership with Gazelle Academy and the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), has empowered 300 Nigerian youths with top-of-the-line entrepreneurial skills. Speaking at the launch of the fiv-day youth empowerment programme held at the University of Nigeria Nsukka, Mr. Okonkwo reiterated the bank’s commitment to creating a veritable platform for building an entrepreneurial spirit in the nation’s teeming undergraduates.
Speaking in the same vein, Mrs Monica Ugo Ugwuanyi, wife of the governor, applauded the bank for investing in youth empowerment.
Top government functionaries, captains of industry, media practitioners and the academia all converged on the UNN Campus to witness the youth empowerment programme.

Talk show host Wendy Williams believes Cole is Kenya’s man, and had a lot to say about the relationship on her show. Wendy continues, “There’s only one problem though, Kenya girl, you got to close your legs to married men.

Ms Jane Ihuoma Ottah however said nothing will hinder her from getting educated and fulfilling her dreams of becoming a lecturer in life. India actually banned the export of frog legs in the 1980's because mosquito populations were increasing as the frog populations declined.
They are also quite adept at establishing populations in areas to which they have been introduced, and they have become invasive species in at least 15 countries worldwide. The Indonesians are responsible for 45% of the world's frog legs exports, and the domestic frog legs trade is thought to be at least as large.
Everything about it sounded appealing: the sunset, the water, the atmosphere, until the part where diners were munching on frogs' legs. Ghana UDS Chapter at the University for Development Studies in Tamale, Ghana is working to end the over consumption of frogs in Ghana. The frogs are either taken out of the wild, or they are raised in farms; the farmed frogs have high rates of chytrid infection, and they are often large non-native species that prey upon native frogs. Cultures must be changed once they are no longer beneficial; thus, Fijians and Papua New Guineans do not often complain that they are no longer allowed to cannibalize their fellow humans. The article highlights our work, and the problems with the frog legs trade, of which France is the largest participant. The programme, which is part of the bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, is targeted at creating a new breed of entrepreneurs amongst Nigeria’s increasing youth population.
Commenting on the scope of the programme, Okonkwo said that the students were trained on tailoring and make-up, explaining that the exercise provided students with knowledge and first-hand experience on the above-mentioned skills. According to her, the youths are agents of the future, urging other private organisations to take a cue from Fidelity. This woman is dating a man that already is taken and with kids, what a horrible thing to get involved with. She is also a liar because when asked about Apolo she said she didn’t date married men. And even though she scaled through Primary school, made her WAEC in one sitting, Rivers State University of Science & Technology are now trying to cut off her dreams at a point where she is very close to it. The Californian gold-miners nearly ate the California red-legged frog (Rana draytonii) to extinction in the 19th century, and the species has never fully recovered. The French ate so many of their native frogs that the government had to ban the eating of native frogs, and now France relies on imports from Indonesia and other distant countries. Amphibians are the most rapidly disappearing group of vertebrates on the planet, with 2,000+ species on the brink of extinction.


Does that leg taste as good when you realize that eating it is helping frogs exit the planet forever? We called Bernardus, told them that frogs were rapidly disappearing and requested they not serve frog legs. This makes Wegman's the first supermarket in the world to remove frog legs from their shelves for environmental reasons. Remember though, it is up to you to educate that business about the harm being caused by the frog legs trade! Reiterating the lender’s commitment to continually equip Nigerian youths with requisite skills needed to make them self-reliant, Okonkwo declared that Nigerian youths had been denied opportunities to develop in diverse realms of human endeavours. And if that is true, Kenya will be scrutinized, because RadarOnline reports Cole is married with three children. The Goliath Frog (Conraua goliath), the world's largest frog, is being hunted to near extinction in western Africa.
We need people on the ground at the festival to distribute literature and educate the festival attendees and promoters. Over one billion frogs are removed from the wild each year for the frog legs trade, and several hundred million others are raised on farms. Supporter Sandra Walters for getting this letter of hers published in the January 12, 2014 edition of the Daytona News-Journal and helping raise awareness of the relationship between frog legs and frog extinctions!
Whose skin secretions have been proven to combat some viruses, and who themselves are part of the web of life, serving as food for predators like birds and fish? The bullfrogs commonly escape their rearing facilities and establish populations outside their native range, which is the eastern USA and Canada. We believe that we can significantly reduce the number of restaurants serving frog legs, and thus our frog legs campaign has achievable goals. The reality is that frog legs in America are generally eaten as a joke by people who are completely unaware of the ecological damage being wrought by their impulsive and whimsical menu decision. Specifically, the harvest of wild frogs leads to depletion of wild populations, and trade in farm-raised frogs leads to the spread of harmful infectious diseases and invasive species. If you eat frog legs in an American or European restaurant, there is a high chance it is this fungus-prone invasive species, which is native to the eastern United States.
This demonstrates the importance of environmental education and SAVE THE FROGS' campaigns to raise awareness of frog extinctions. The bullfrogs eat native frogs, birds, bats, snakes and other wildlife, and spread diseases. This potentially unsustainable harvest apparently has dramatically increased during the past decade. Many bullfrogs are shipped live to the USA, where they infect our native frog populations, causing irreparable harm.
Now I honestly have no stand in this, i was directed to this article by a friend who is oblivious of the fact that I care not about the lives of people who are of no use to me.
These farm-raised bullfrogs regularly escape their frog farms and cause major problems for native wildlife. What's not to like about these tough little guys who have survived for 250 million years, and serve as warning signals when our aquatic environment goes haywire from pollution or disease? It sounds like they should be a bit more considerate of frogs from other part of the world, rather than blind to their actions and dependent on the exploitation of globally-sourced wildlife. They also spread chytridiomycosis, a skin disease that has decimated frog populations worldwide. Charlottesville residents should be aware that if they choose to eat frog legs, they will be contributing to the continued extinction of frog species.
