The SAG Awards did really make a wonderful attempt of celebrating people of color this year, obviously the issue of diversity in Hollywood is finally becoming top priority. A fact that has seen this year SAG Award go to some talented Black Women in the movie industry.

- Nigerian lawyers seek £1m from Oxford Varsity? for ‘wrong definition’
Some Nigerian lawyers are seeking one million pounds from the University of Oxford, over alleged wrong definition of the words “Mortgagee and Mortgagor,” saying the words are as contained in the Oxford mini reference dictionary and Oxford English mini dictionary, Vanguardngr reports.
The lawyers, Messrs Ogedi Ogu, and Emmanuel Ofoegbu have sent a letter of notice of intention to sue to the Registrar, University of Oxford, Wellington, London. They are demanding the sum of £1m for the losses they suffered in their transactions, when they relied on the said wrong definition of the words. .
Specifically, the lawyers assert that the Oxford English mini dictionary and the Oxford mini reference dictionary defined the word “Mortgagee” to mean a borrower and the word “Mortgagor to mean a lender. .
They further assert that the said dictionary definitions are wrongful and misleading as in a Mortgage transaction, the word “Mortgagee” connotes a lender while a “Mortgagor signifies a borrower. .
