Via correspondent @wbrangham — "I tell them all: there is no job waiting for you...You will have to be a prostitute." A Nigerian "burga" or "guide man" shows a photo of a young woman he says he helped leave Nigeria and send to Europe thru Libya. He says she's landed in Germany, sent him this photo and is now happily working a legit job. (Of course, most Nigerians who try this journey have far grimmer outcomes.) @jakane1 and I are here reporting for the @newshour on this human flow from Nigeria - part economic aspiration, part brutal human trafficking. (I've blacked out some parts of the phone screen.)

"I've never been to hell, but Libya was hell." Amos was one of the thousands of Nigerians who tried to make it to a better life in Europe by crossing the Sahara into Libya. But like so many others, he got stuck and was sold to different traffickers. His family cashed their life savings trying in vain to free him... he then took a bullet in the left arm trying to escape. He's back home in Nigeria now, unemployed and broke and with only one usable arm. His story -- and those of other young Nigerians who've been trafficked -- will be on the @newshour soon.

Via correspondent @wbrangham --- Evelyn Oghagbon disappeared 2 yrs ago from Benin City, Nigeria, likely taken away by traffickers. Her mom Joy (above, with her sons Bright and Stanley) got one scared phone call from Evelyn, who said she was in Libya and had been promised she'd get to France. They haven't heard a word from her since. Every time the government announces a new group of young Nigerians have been rescued and returned home, Joy goes to meet them, hoping to find her daughter. @newshour

"Your silence and your amnesia is complicity," Sen. @corybooker (D-NJ) told Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen after she told lawmakers earlier that she "did not hear" President Trump use vulgar language when referring to African countries. #politics

This image won a BioArt Competition award from the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. The photo is of an alligator embryo just beginning to develop organs. Fluorescent colors label the nerves (green), mussels (orange), and cell nuclei (blue). Yale researchers created the image to compare alligator and chicken development and spot variations that will lead to characteristics unique to birds. Despite the distinguishing alligator tail that is already developing, the researchers say that it is still similar to a bird embryo, the crocodylian’s closest living relative.

With American gin as a base, Octagon Bar's Taha Ismail adds a few dashes of lavender bitters, to draw out the floral notes of the spirit, fresh lemon juice and a simple syrup made from equal parts honey and water. He shakes the ingredients with an egg white, which is frothed in the tin, and tops it with bee pollen. For the full recipe, as part of our 12 Days of Cocktails, see our link in bio.

Here’s the thing about eggnog: Unlike the milky, sugary stuff you buy at the grocery store, traditional eggnog is rich and dense. Many people have never had eggnog as it was originally intended. Check out the authentic eggnog recipe we got from Sun Liquor Distillery's Eric Chapman. #eggnog #recipes #food #holidayfood

People look towards the sun as druids, pagans and revellers gather at Stonehenge, hoping to see the sun rise, as they take part in a winter solstice ceremony at the ancient neolithic monument of Stonehenge. Despite a forecast for cloud and rain, a large crowd gathered at the famous historic stone circle to celebrate the sunrise closest to the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. The event is claimed to be more important in the pagan calendar than the summer solstice, because it marks the 're-birth' of the Sun for the New Year.

Roshid Jan, a Rohingya refugee who said she is not sure about her age, cries holding her son Muhammad Gyab at their shelter at the camp for widows and orphans inside the Balukhali camp near Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, December 5, 2017. Roshid Jan, who walked for 10 days with her five children to Bangladesh after soldiers burnt their village, wept when she spoke about her missing husband. The religious leader in their Phansi village in Myanmar's Rakhine state was accused of being a member of the Rohingya militants and arrested 11 months ago, she said. She had not seen him or heard about his fate since then. Now she lives with her five children and more than 230 others at camp for Rohingya widows and orphans. REUTERS/Damir Sagolj
