Boko Haram: What happened in Baga?



Subscribe to BBC News www.youtube.com/bbcnews
It’s one month since the northern Nigerian town of Baga was brutally attacked and seized by the Islamist militant group Boko Haram. The exact death toll is unknown but claims vary from 150 to 2,000 people killed. It’s too dangerous for journalists to travel to the town – but a BBC investigation has gathered eyewitness testimony from those who managed to escape to refugee camps in neighbouring Chad. This is their story. We have also produced a special page about this event so please make sure to check it out.

Recruiter News – How Relentless Grit Helps You Win

When most people think of Nike, they tend to think of super athletes who Just Do IT! Folks like Michael Jordan, Mia Hamm, LeBron, Federer, Sharapova; maybe a few fallen stars, like Lance Armstrong and Pistorius; those on the rise again, like Tiger; controversial ones like Kaepernick; and now, a lost star, who showed us an 81 point game and 30 points in one quarter (twice) could be real things. The world will miss Kobe.

But when Nike employees picture someone, they still think of a scrappy, 5’9”, 139 lbs mustachioed runner named Steve Prefontaine, otherwise known in running circles as Pre. Prefontaine was the prized pupil of the company’s co-founder, Bill Bowerman, from his coaching days at the University of Oregon. His spirit is the cornerstone of the company.

Jaywick: Most deprived place in England (2010) – BBC News



Six months ago in a by-election, Clacton became the first constituency to elect a UKIP MP – heralding a “coming of age” for the party, according to its leader Nigel Farage. Like all constituencies, Clacton has its own set of particular needs. But in 2010, one town within the constituency, Jaywick, was named the most deprived place in England, in the Department for Communities’ indices of deprivation.
It is not a label of which the people of the town are proud – many would like the politicians that represent them to help turn around the fortunes of their home. BBC News visited the town to find the part politics plays in people’s day-to-day lives. The candidates for the Clacton constituency are:
Douglas Carswell (UKIP)
David Grace (Liberal Democrat)
Chris Southall (Green)
Giles Watling (Conservative)
Tim Young (Labour)
Video journalist: Ed Ram

'I'm scared of my own autistic child' – BBC News



Parents struggling to cope with their violent autistic children are not being properly supported by local authorities, the National Autistic Society has told us.

BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme’s reporter Noel Phillips has been to meet families affected.

The Local Government Association says while “councils are working hard to make sure children with autism and other special needs get access to the support they need… they have been put in an impossible situation due to increasing demand and historic underfunding”.
