Nations Cup success: Chelsea want Omeruo back in London

 Kenneth Omeruo, the man who stopped Didier drogba at AFCON 2013

Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omueruo is set to rejoin Chelsea in the summer after his superlative outing at the 2013 African Nations Cup where he help the Eagles to win the trophy.
He was sent on loan to ADO Den Haag to develop his skills, but Chelsea on the look out for replacement for aging John Terry will open talks with the Dutch club next month to pave way for Omeruo’s return to Stamford Bridge.
With Omeruo in line to be named in Chelsea’s first-team squad next season, another Nigerian at the London club, Victor Moses, believes the teenager can fit into the Blues.
“I couldn’t believe it when he said he hadn’t played in the African Nations Cup before. He was really strong and is a good defender. He is a great lad and a player for the future (for Chelsea),” Moses told chelseafc.com.

The 25 Most Miserable Places In The World


The misery index, a crude economic measure created by Arthur Orkum, sums a country's unemployment and inflation rates to assess conditions on the ground (the higher the number, the more miserable a country is). The reasoning: most citizens understand the pain of a high jobless rate and the soaring price of goods.

Business Insider totaled the figures for 197 countries and territories — from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe — to compile the 2013 Misery Index.

Note: Results are based on CIA World Factbook data, which estimates figures for countries and territories that do not have reliable local reporting agencies. The CIA World Factbook was last updated on February

"I Am Scared Of Marriage"- Nollywood Actress, Ebube Nwagbo Confesses

Ebube Nwagbo’s parents would never have supported her if they knew when she started acting. Today, her family is proud of the star she has become in the highly competitive Nigerian movie industry.
“My dad came back home one day and said he saw a poster of a girl that really looked like me and I feigned ignorance. I told him people look alike,” Nwagbo said, adding “I did not have the nerves to tell him it was me. When the movie came out, I had to leave home for a while because I did not know how they would feel. Luckily for me, the movie came out, I acted a good role. They liked the fact that I did something nice. I did not give them any reason to be angry, upset or disappointed in me.
“I do not think I have given my family a reason not to be proud of me as an actress. I think I have made them proud in many ways and they have given me their love and support. I am not perfect, but I never forget where I am coming from or heading to, no matter the madness and craziness that comes with my profession.”

Obama Asks US Supreme Court To Allow Gay Marriage

The Barack Obama administration took another step toward institutionalizing gay marriage, formally asking the US Supreme Court to strike down a 1996 law defining marriage exclusively as a union between a man and a woman.
The request was contained in a legal brief filed Friday with the US court, whose nine justices will next month review whether or not to repeal the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which bans marriage between homosexuals.
The document marks the first time a president has endorsed same-sex marriage rights before the Supreme Court.
According to the filing, the Defense of Marriage Act “violates the fundamental constitutional guarantee of equal protection” before the law stipulated by the US Constitution.
DOMA “denies to tens of thousands of same-sex couples who are legally married under state law an array of important federal benefits that are available to legally married opposite-sex couples,” read the brief signed

HIV Cure Finally Found?


Another major breakthrough was reported in the search for a cure for AIDS.
After bone marrow transplantation, two HIV-infected men have no longer any trace of the virus that causes AIDS in their cells, researchers report.
Lymphocytes are a type of white blood cells and are a key part of the immune system.
U.S. investigators suspect that the bone marrow transplant, together with the continuation of antiretroviral therapy as a result of the dramatic effects evident eight months after transplantation. They are scheduled to present preliminary findings Thursday at the International AIDS Conference in Washington, DC.
HIV patients receiving antiretroviral therapy often get “an undetectable viral load” meaning no virus particles in their blood. But they still have latent HIV in their cells, and if antiretroviral therapy was stopped, it could

Did a Secret Vatican Report on Gay Sex and Blackmail Bring Down the Pope?


Pope Benedict XVI has claimed that he's resigning the papacy next week because of old age. But according to the major Italian newspaper La Repubblica, the real reason he resigned is because he did not want to deal the repercussions of a secret 300-page Vatican dossier that allegedly found, among other things, an underground network of high-ranking gay clergy, complete with sex parties and shady dealings with the already scandal-ridden Vatican bank. Here's what we know:

The report sounds menacing. According to La Repubblica, the dossier comes in two volumes, "two folders hard-bound in red" with the header "pontifical secret."

Pope Benedict asked for the investigation. "The paper said the pope had taken the decision on 17 December that he was going to resign — the day he received a dossier compiled by three cardinals delegated to look into the so-called 'Vatileaks' affair," according to the The Guardian's translation of the

I think sex is meant to be enjoyed by two people who have serious feeling for each other. Sex is good, it is there for two lovers to enjoy themselves and share the secrets of their hearts.

The mum-to-be stepped out in a skin-hugging dress that revealed her expanding baby bump and ledge-ndary derriere in all their glory.
Her black and white dress was a hit in the fashion stakes, ticking the Spring/Summer trend of monochrome and smart tailoring.

The body-hugging black dress was adorned with a draping white panel that covered the front – and only one side of her body.
Meaning when she turned to the other side only the clingy black material was visible.

Kim, who is still favouring stilettos over flats, had arranged her jet black hair into a neat bun and applied a

Boko Haram, Ansaru Target Lagos, Others


Culled from the Punch:


Terror groups have begun a recruitment drive in the South-West with the aim of establishing cells in the zone, Saturday Punch’s investigations have shown.
The recruitment drive by the Boko Haram and its breakaway faction, Jama’atu Ansarul Muslimina Fi Biladis-Sudan, it was gathered, was a prelude to attacks they were planning to launch in the zone.
The idea is to establish cells within the South-West to coordinate attacks within the zone by identifying fundamentalists in the area.
A security source, who disclosed this, said the plan to move to the South-West, particularly Lagos, was hinged on the economic importance of the zone.
Investigations showed that the groups reasoned that attacks on the South-West would not only affect the country’s economy, but could also precipitate ethnic clashes across the country.

Saudi Religious Police Arrest Ethiopians For Practicing Christianity


Saudi Arabia’s notorious religious police, known as the mutawa, swooped in on a private gathering of at least 53 Ethiopian Christians this month, shutting down their private prayer, and arresting the peaceful group of foreign workers for merely practicing their faith.

Chinese Girl Writes With Both Hands At A Time, In Different Languages


Chen Siyuan, a young translator from Handan, China’s Hebei province, has the incredibly ability to write with both hands at the same time. Even more impressive is that fact that she can write vertically with one hand and horizontally with the other, or in two different languages.

This young English translator has been wowing onlookers with her amazing talent of writing with both hands simultaneously, in two different languages (Chinese and English).
