Reason why late kobe Bryant love helicopter

The world is in mourning over the death of the 41-year-old Los Angeles Lakers legend. The basketball star, who shared four kids with wife Vanessa Bryant, passed away on Sunday morning in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, Calif. Kobes 13-year-old daughter Gianna “Gigi” Bryant, along with seven other people, were also killed in the devastating crash.

At the time of the crash, the helicopter was believed to heading to Kobes Mamba Academy in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Kobe was the coach of his daughters basketball team, and fellow passengers on the helicopter included Gigis teammates and Kobes assistant coach.

As news of the crash emerged over the weekend, tributes for the beloved star began to appear online. In the tributes, its often mentioned how much Kobe loved his family and how much he enjoyed talking about them. In a 2018 interview with Alex Rodriguez for The Corp With A-Rod and Big Cat, Kobe explained how much family time meant to him, and why he started taking helicopters from his home in Orange County up to the Los Angeles area for basketball.

“Traffic started getting really, really bad,” Kobe said during the interview. “I was sitting in traffic and I wound up missing like a school play because I was sitting in traffic.”

“This thing just kept mounting, and I had to figure out a way that I could still train and focus on the craft but still not compromise family time,” Kobe explained. “So thats when I looked into helicopters and being able to get down and back in 15 minutes.”

While Kobes wife Vanessa offered to pick the kids up, Kobe told her he wanted to do it because being on the road for basketball often kept him away from home.

Kobe added, “Every chance I get to see them and spend time with them, even if its 20 minutes in the car, I want that.”

In addition to Gigi, Kobe and Vanessa are parents to Natalia Bryant, 17, Bianka Bryant, 3, and Capri Bryant, 7 months.

Our thoughts are with the families affected by this tragedy during this heartbreaking time.

Manchester united agree 26 million euro for a attacker(guess who?)

Manchester United are consistently linked with Sporting CP attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes and the latest reports going on in the media seem highly positive.

According to The Sun , Man Utd are expected to agree a five year contract worth £26million that will make the player earn £100,000-a-week. The British source have revealed that the Portuguese international will finally complete his move to Old Trafford after playing in the derby contest vs Benfica

Similarly, Nicolo Schira tweeted that the attacker will play his final game for the Lions vs the Primeira Liga leaders and after that, he will finalize his move to the Red Devils. The renowned Italian journalist further mentioned that Man Utd and the player’s agent fully expect the transfer to be completed.

So, if reports in the media are anything to go by, we can expect the highly rated Seleccao star to be a Man United player in the next few days.

Ideally, I would have liked Fernandes to join early enough to be ready for the crucial contest vs Liverpool but reports suggest (A Bola via Sport Witness) that the former Sampdoria star could watch the North West Derby from the stands.

Not to forget, Rashford, who has been our best player this term by some distance, suffered an injury last night vs Wolves and was taken off the field. If the England international is absent on Sunday then we will have more than a mountain to climb to get anything from Anfield against the European Champions, who have been in record breaking form this season.

We are the only club who have so far managed to stop them from winning in the Premier League in the current campaign. Can we do it again in their own backyard? Last season, Klopp’s men won 3-1 at Anfield.

Let’s hope that we can sign Bruno Fernandes this weekend and see him in action when the Red Devils face Burnley in the Premier League next week at Old Trafford.

A man who chop his lover head wit a merchant

Police and residents gather outside a home where Portia Rama kanji, inset, was killed in Tshino village. / SUPPLIED A woman who was chopped to death, allegedly by her boyfriend, was warned to file for a protection order after years of physical abuse.

Portia Ramakavhi, 35, from HaMutsha village, outside Thohoyandou in Limpopo, was stabbed with a sharp object on her upper body and chopped with a panga on her head on Saturday.

Ramakavhis uncle Owen Mulovhedzi told Sowetan yesterday he had on several occasions advised his niece to secure a protection order against her abusive boyfriend, fearing he would kill her one day.

“She took my advice lightly. I said this because I could see the man had turned her into a punching bag. He would even beat her inside my yard.”

Mulovhedzi said he secured a protection order against the man earlier this year. “After he assaulted her in front of me in my yard, I went to the police and got a protection order. I even told Portia to do the same but she only promised to do so.”

The uncle said the family was now facing a mammoth task of raising Ramakavhis six-year-old daughter.

“We are still going to explain to her when she grows that her mother was killed. It is a painful thing to say to a child.”

Mulovhedzi said the law must take its course.

Provincial police spokesperson Brig Motlafela Mojapelo said the incident happened in the suspects home in Tshino, Vuwani.

“It is alleged that the suspect accused his wife of cheating and after a heated argument, he then stabbed and chopped her with sharp instruments. The victim died on the spot. Angry community members pursued the suspect, caught him and started beating him up,” he said.

Mojapelo said the police were called and the 45-year-old suspect was taken to hospital where he was admitted and placed under police guard.

His family said that the man, who cannot be named until he appears in court, returned home very angry on Friday.

His cousin said the man accused his girlfriend of cheating after coming back from her place on Friday.

“He didnt say much because he was drunk. The next day, he invited her to his mothers house and argument ensued in the house,” she said.

“The incident shocked us, we didnt think he was capable of something so horrible. They were not staying together, she only came to visit.”

The cousin said the pair had been dating for five years.

Provincial police commissioner Lt-Gen Nneke Ledwaba condemned the incident and violent behavior when dealing with domestic issues.

“The SAPS will deal decisively with any perpetrators of gender-based violence and this arrest should send a strong message about our determination to stamp it out.”

MEC for social development Nkakareng Rakgoale said: “The very sad state of affairs cannot continue. We simply cant comprehend what drives some men to do this to the very people they have vowed to protect and love.

“The impact on families, especially children, in such cases, is just too huge to comprehend. Men need to understand their boy children will emulate their actions and therefore, we need men to take the biggest stand against this scourge.”

Tips on how to improve your relationship this year

Whether you’ve been dating your partner for six months or have been married to him or her for five years, relationships are created from commitment and are continued due to mutual respect and effort. To say your connection is special would be an understatement — and to not wish to enhance it would be unfortunate.

While every relationship is different, no relationship is perfect. By doing these 10 things to improve your bond, you won’t only ensure a quality relationship with your partner, but you’ll also prove that you’re determined to work for one.

1. Ask your partner something new

Communication is the determining factor of success for every relationship. It’s nice to ask how your partner’s day went, but it’s boring when you ask over and over again. Enhance your conversation by putting in the extr\n10. Make time to focus on yourself a effort to question your significant other on something more specific. Through this adjusted approach, you avoid falling into routine and begin holding more meaningful discussions.

2. Designate a monthly date night

Amongst both of your busy schedules and nonstop responsibilities, the most foolproof way to guarantee that you make time for each other is to set a night every month dedicated to doing just that. Regardless of if you’re looking to spice up your relationship or wanting an activity that doesn’t include Netflix, the commitment to go on a date is one night — but the happiness that comes from it will last much longer.

3. Express your appreciation

The comfort that a relationship brings is the reason we tend to overlook what our partners do and treat their acts of kindness as our forms of expectation instead. To put it honestly, your partner doesn’t have to fill your gas tank or buy your favorite ice cream — he or she chooses to, and your acknowledgment of this type of effort will reinforce your partner to be thoughtful and remind you to feel thankful.

4. Tweak your schedule

We know — you’re independent and don’t plan on stopping your life for anyone (and you shouldn’t have to). Even though you have other commitments outside of your relationship, it’s a kind gesture to compare both of your schedules to see if it’s possible to spend more time together.

Maybe your partner can go to the gym a little earlier to attend the movie premiere you wanted to attend, or maybe you can wake up earlier to get your projects done so that you can make it to your partner’s intramural game. While you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your life to satisfy your partner, your ability to compromise should be enough to make him or her happy.

5. Remember the small things

Another way to add meaning to your conversation is to truly listen to what your significant other is saying — and talk about it in the future. If your partner mentions a conversation that he or she wants to have with a manager, take note on your calendar and remember to ask about it the day of. The fact that you’re able to refer back to the topics and details that your partner spoke about is one that will touch him or her. Overall, it’s the little things that mean the most, and there’s no better way to show this that n starting with your relationship.

6. Let go of the past

As a culprit for many potential arguments and the underlying issue for future ones, what happens in the past doesn’t always stay there — and it’s difficult to move forward in a relationship when you’re still thinking about what happened in it from another time.

If you find yourself continuing to dwell on the past, it might be a sign to take a step back and consider why — are you naturally less forgiving or is what happened something you can’t seem to forgive? By focusing on the reason for this recurring feeling, you’ll find more clarity within yourself and what you want from the relationship with your partner.

7. Show your affection

Along with expressing your gratitude to your partner, expressing actions to show how much you care about him or her is also suggested. From grabbing your partner’s hand at a restaurant to going to bed together at the end of the night, you know how you feel about your partner, and he or she should be able to witness it as well.

8. Learn your partner’s boundaries

Does your partner wish to be left alone when he or she is upset? Does he or she mind that you want to text throughout the day? These questions are simple, but the answers to them will help you understand the boundaries of your partners and stop you from crossing them. Overall, your partner’s sense of privacy is most likely different from yours, and knowing his or her boundaries is the best way to respect them.

9. Know when to apologize

Sometimes being right isn’t as important as being compassionate. Whereas conflicts with your significant other will vary, not every argument is a challenge that needs to be won. Don’t get us wrong — we aren’t telling you to take blame for everything, but to decide which battles are worth fighting for. Although there’s glory in knowing you’re right, there’s maturity in apologizing during an argument that isn’t as important as the person you’re arguing with.

10. Make time to focus on yourself

How we feel about ourselves is how we’ll act in a relationship — for example, if you lack confidence in yourself, you’ll look for assurance in your relationship. To prevent any toxic behaviors from happening with your partner, it’s essential to have a strong sense of self. Invest in a new hobby, make plans with some friends, and take steps in discovering who you are as a person. By falling in love with yourself, you’ll naturally be your own best version for the person who happens to be falling in love with you.

Disadvantages of cheating and ways on how to deal with a cheating spouse

If you have asked the question why do men cheat, you probably know that infidelity has many downsides. However, we shall outline some of the problems that come with a chronic cheating habit. Men who cheat are:

• Likely to do a poor job of fulfilling their parenting duties: often, men who cheat are bad role models for their children

• Unlikely to be loving, caring and supportive husbands

. Likely to infect their wives with STIs

• Unlikely to make their marriages and relationships work

How to deal with a cheating spouse

Anyone who asks the question, why do men cheat likely wants to know if it is possible to make a man stay committed. Please keep in mind that you can’t make anyone stay faithful to you. If they want to cheat, they will always find a way.

However, if you are with a partner who recognizes that they have a problem and they sincerely want to change, you can help them by:

• Understanding your spouse’s emotional and physical needs

• Accepting their sexual advances and being open to intimacy and sexual intercourse when they need it

• Spicing up your sex life

• Communicate effectively and listen to their needs so you can know what areas of their life need work.

• Spend quality time alone together

• Appeal to his sense of worthiness: tell him he’s valued and that you appreciate his role in your life

• Work on yourselves: exercise together and maintain a healthy diet

Remember that man’s decision to cheat is entirely his. Often, there is nothing a spouse can do. If his cheating is as a result of attachment disorder and sex addiction, he’ll need to see a psychologist for his problem.

So, why do men really cheat?

Men stray for a wide range of reasons. If your man is cheating, it is natural to blame yourself for it. You should remember not to blame yourself too harshly. Cheating is often premeditated meaning that they thought about it before they did it.

If you decide to stay in the relationship and this decision is yours to make you can talk to him about what could be making him stray. The idea is to work together to find a solution.

It is important to note that communication is key. Open up the communication lines and keep them useful. Whatever you do, avoid nagging. Insults could end up driving a bigger wedge between the both of you.

If you want to keep your relationship, you can win him over by showering him with love and respect. Let him know how cheating affects you and your relationship with him. Tell him about the side effects of his actions, too.

Reasons why men cheat

Men and women cheat for all sorts of reasons. Women often stray because they want an emotional connection or money or both. But experts believe that men tend to cheat for the following reasons

• Feelings of insecurity, unworthiness and being unloved

• An opportunity presents itself and they grab the chance to try something new

• Lack of satisfaction in their sexual relationships with their spouses, especially when the woman repeatedly denies them sex

• Seeking attention and physical contact

• Probably feels jealous that the wife has been paying too much attention to the baby and little attention to him

• There is a communication gap in their relationship

• An attachment disorder or a sex addiction problem

• The man might be battling with childhood baggage abandonment, abuse, or was raised in a dysfunctional family

• Monogamy sounds like a joke to him

• He has been socially conditioned to believe that infidelity is a man’s right

• They think they can get away with it

According to a recent study, men who feel less committed to their relationships are more likely to cheat on their partners. Unlike women, many men are perfectly capable of emotional dissociation. Such men can feel attached to one woman (usually the wife), lust after another woman, and be romantically involved with another.

Experts are still trying to find out how the human brain evolved to juggle different relationships at the same time. But one thing is certain: infidelity has many disadvantages.

Check out this magnificent Chelsea January signing

An ex Stamford Bridge favourite thinks that the Frenchman has all the attributes to be successful at Stamford Bridge under Frank Lampards tutelage

Floyd Hasselbaink has urged Chelsea to try and sign Lyon striker Moussa Dembele in the January transfer window.

The Blues were unable to bring in any new players over the summer due to a FIFA imposed transfer ban, but after seeing those sanctions lifted in December, Frank Lampard is free to make changes to his squad in the winter market.

Chelsea have relied heavily upon the talents of first choice forward Abraham since the season started, with Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud restricted to back up roles.

Abraham has hit 12 goals in 20 Premier League outings, but Lampard has been tipped to bring in another front man to provide extra competition for the English international.

Dembele is thought to be near the top of his list of targets, despite the fact Lyon are determined to keep their price star.

Hasselbaink former QPR boss witnessed Dembeles talent up close while he was on Fulham books in the Championship, and thinks Drmbele would be a “magnificent signing” for Chelsea if a deal can be pushed over the line in the coming day.

Chelsea need to make new signings because you have to keep the rhythm going and just to get some kind of new blood coming through the door,” says ex Blues strike “It is always good when you make a signing. It gives everybody new energy, you know?

“Tammy Abraham is doing really well but he is the only one really who is doing really well. Batshuayi is not making a difference. Giroud, I think, he does not really fit in with their plans.

“They need to get a striker in. Moussa Dembele would be a magnificent signing for Chelsea. I know Moussa quite well. I faced him when I was QPR manager, he played ever so well and killed my defence.

“Having already tasted that and gone through that pressure, and if Chelsea buy him, he is familiar with that.

Hasselbaink went on to express his belief that Lampard is capable of turning Dembele into an even better player, while insisting that Abraham cannot shoulder Chelseas goalscoring burden on his own.

“Frank will improve him Dembele with Jody Morris, in his combination play, that can be better and improved,” he said.

“But what you can’t teach a player is being somewhere at the right time, and he has that a lot. Tammy has that as well, but at a big club, you have to have a couple of strikers who are really good. You need competition

3 Easy Step On How To Smell Nice Without Perfume(just three)

1. Buy an essential oil (your favourite scent from the health food store) and dilute it with a carrier oil, like almond oil.

2. Spread coconut oil on your body after you shower. It will give you an appealing scent and make you smell like the beach.

3. Convince yourself to go fragrances free and let your natural scent (ie. pheromones) attract others to you because pheromones actually have a biological purpose — to attract the opposite sex. Sounds funny, right?

Perfume Is Dangerous To The Health- A Must Read

Call it a perfume, cologne, toilette or whatever, the truth is weve all been victimized by it. How?

Do you remember having a headache or sneezing badly, because of someone else perfume? Yes, the perfume was so strong that regardless of how you tried you couldn’t resist the fragrance, right?

Well, it happened because you’re inhaling potential toxins and harmful substances that are causing a reaction in your body. And as weird as this may sound, it is potentially just as bad as “second-hand smoke”.

Research has even shown that there are MORE chemicals in perfume and cologne than in cigarette smoke. And as a matter of fact, each puff of cigarette smoke has 250 chemicals while perfume and cologne can have up to 3000 different chemicals that make up a signature scent.

It is, however, important to state here that about 95 per cent of the chemicals used in fragrances are synthetic, petroleum-based compounds.

And it’s s normal for these chemicals to cause allergic reactions like sneezing, itchy watery eyes, wheezing and headaches.

Also fragrance can exacerbate asthma, environmental illness (EI) and migraines.

According to the findings of an investigation into fragrances, perfumes, and colognes by the Environmental Working Group (EWG):

16 per cent of the reviewed products contained ingredients that may cause cancer

5 per cent may contain harmful impurities linked to cancer or other health problem

18 per cent contained penetration enhancers that increase exposures to carcinogens and other ingredients of concern

And As odd as this may sound, especially if you’re hearing it for the first time, perfumes are not good for you because they are made of carcinogenic substances that make them hazardous to your health.

98 per cent of products contained ingredients not assessed for safety in cosmetics or with insufficient data

76 per cent contained ingredients that are allergens

13 per cent of products posed other potential health concern.

Here is what you can do if you’re disturbed by the fragrance

If you’re one of the many people that feel ill when exposed to fragrances, it is advisable for you to opt for fragrance-free varieties of all your personal care items, or at least choosing products that don’t t contain synthetic fragrance.

You should also inform your family members and friends, especially your co-worker, who wear perfumes that upset your system that you’re reacting to the chemicals in their perfume/cologne, etc.

Do this politely for a positive result; however, if they refuse to oblige, continue to tell them politely until they do.

Black Footballers Playing In Brazil Have Been Victims Of Racism

The survey, based on information collected anonymously from 163 black players in the top four divisions of Brazilian football, shows that 48.1% of those surveyed have experienced racism in their sport.

For 92.4% of them, the episode of racism took place in a stadium, 6.3% in the facilities of their club and 1.3% in a hotel.

We, the players, are doing what we can, what is within our reach, to make it stop. But this responsibility mainly falls to the federations

But 87.8% of these footballers claim not to have denounced the acts of racism of which they were victims.

With regard to the measures to be adopted to combat this scourge, 39% of those polled consider that the perpetrators of acts of racism should be punished, 27.7% recommend the implementation of educational campaigns and 19.5% would like the clubs are sanctioned.

Brazil, of which 54% of the population is black or mestizo, is far from being spared from the problems of racism in stadiums, where scandals are increasing.

On Sunday, a video showed an Atlético Mineiro supporter in Belo Horizonte attacking a black steward shouting: “don’t touch me, look at your skin color!”

Brazilian footballers are also frequently victims of racism abroad.

Also on Sunday, Shakhtar Donetsk captain Taison was the target of racist shouts from Dynamo Kiev supporters and the referee then kicked him out for sending the ball to the stands.

The player left the lawn crying, comforted by players from his Shakhtar and Dynamo teams.

Monday, William, a black Chelsea player who played for Shakhtar (2013-2017), was moved by the situation of his compatriot during a press conference of the Brazilian selection.

“Racism continues to claim lives, not only in football, but in other areas as well. It makes us really uncomfortable to see players cry, I hope it will end once and for all, “he said.

We, the players, are doing what we can, what is within our reach, to make it stop. But this responsibility belongs above all to the federations

Man awarded for forgiving woman who killed his brother

Brandt Jean, the brother of Botham Jean, received an award Tuesday from a law enforcement organization for his “display of empathy and forgiveness” toward ex-cop Amber Guyger.

In an emotional and stunning moment in the courtroom, Brandt Jean asked State District Judge Tammy Kemp if he could hug Guyger. The two embraced and whispered to each other after Guyger was sentenced.

“If you truly are sorry, I know I can speak for myself, I forgive you. I know if you go to God and ask him, he will forgive you,” Brandt Jean told Guyger during victim impact statements following the sentencing.

The Institute of Law Enforcement Administration selected 18-year-old Brandt Jean to receive the 2019 Ethical Courage Award. The presentation took place at the organizations Plano office.

Brandt Jean, the brother of Botham Jean, received an award Tuesday from a law enforcement organization for his “display of empathy and forgiveness” toward ex-cop Amber Guyer.

Guyer, the former Dallas police officer who killed Botham Jean, was sentenced to 10 years in prison in October after she was convicted of murder.

In an emotional and stunning moment in the courtroom, Brandt Jean asked State District Judge Tammy Kemp if he could hug Guyer. The two embraced and whispered to each other after Guyger was sentenced.

“If you truly are sorry, I know I can speak for myself, I forgive you. I know if you go to God and ask him, he will forgive you,” Brandt Jean told Guyger during victim impact statements following the sentencing.

The Institute of Law Enforcement Administration selected 18-year-old Brandt Jean to receive the 2019 Ethical Courage Award. The presentation took place at the organizations Plano office.

Botham Jean, 26, was sitting in his apartment when Guyger walked in and shot him. She said she thought she was entering her own apartment and believed Jean was an intruder.

The September 2018 shooting sparked protests in Dallas and across the country, with many activists saying Jeans death was another example of police brutality against people of color.

Botham Jean was black and Guyger is white.

After the conviction and sentencing, Brandt Jeans act of forgiveness helped the community heal, said Gregory Smith, the director of the Institute of Law Enforcement Administration.

“Despite an unimaginable loss, he saw the humanity in the person responsible for his brothers death,” Smith said in a written statement. “He saw her pain and regret, and had the ability to show empathy, caring and forgiveness.

5 major secrets spouses keep that hurt marriages

1. Unhappiness in the Marriage

Many people wander into a place where they are discontent with their marriage. The reasons for keeping it a secret could be fear of hurting feelings, thinking the problems will eventually sort themselves out, or maybe they just don’t want to admit that they have become unhappy. Sometimes it’s no one’s fault in particular. Sometimes bad habits have developed by both that just need work. In the end, though, the problem(s) is (are) not going to go away by themselves. They have to be brought into the open and dealt with. Otherwise, you and your spouse will continue to separate.

2. Fulfilling Intimacy Desires from Someone or Something Other Than a Spouse

It’s easy to see how an affair is hurtful to a marriage. But it’s the subtle things that are easily missed or justified long before an affair starts that lay the groundwork for disconnection. S** is designed to build intimacy between a husband and wife. Sexual satisfaction and fulfillment are reserved for a spouse. When sex is lacking, it needs to be addressed, talked about, and resolved. Counseling should be sought. When a spouse secretly seeks to satisfy him/herself sexually through masturbation, pornography, or an affair, it destroys intimacy. The soul bonds with those other things rather than the spouse. With every sexual engagement apart from the spouse, the desire for that spouse gets duller until the fire finally goes out.

3. Financial Decisions

No matter who is the primary breadwinner, in marriage, the money belongs to both of you, unless you have come to some sort of divided monetary agreement. Disagreements need to be talked about and worked out, not hidden. When one party makes financial decisions in secret that violate the couple’s agreement, it is a form of financial infidelity. One of the most important ingredients for a thriving marriage is trust. Keeping spending secrets is a major violation of trust and a fast track to disaster.

4. Disagreement

Quietly disagreeing with a decision a spouse makes undermines the relationship in two ways. First, it’s a silent lie. Dishonesty equals disunity. Second, feelings of disagreement have to settle somewhere, and when they are unresolved, they usually turn into resentment. Third, a married couple should always think of themselves as having one brain. Working through disagreement causes us to make more informed decisions, even when it is frustrating. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsberg couldn’t have been more opposite than deceased Justice Antonin Scala. However, in a moving tribute to Scala when he died, she said that when they disagreed her final opinion was always better because he was able to clearly state all of the weak points in his dissent. Silent dissent makes the relationship and the spouse weaker.

5. Past Relationships

Our past relationships significantly impact our current ones. We bring all of the wounds, baggage, and dysfunction they have caused into the marriage. Hiding it only leaves a spouse confused and separated. It is like a wall between one another. Do you have to share with one another all of the things you did physically in previous relationships? No. But it is important for them to know the level of intimacy and how you were affected by it. It’s good for them to know what went right and what went wrong. It helps them to know you better and how your past relational experience has formed you.

8 Signs Your Husband Or Boyfriend Is Gay (Watch Out!!!)

Here are 8 signs we brought up to know if you husband or boyfriend is a gay as some men decide to hide it from their wives or girlfriend because they may hate or hurt them.

Here are the 8 signs;

1. Looks at other men in a flirtatious way

When youre out in public, does he spend too much time looking at other men? Is he fond of winking at people? Does he get visibly upset when someone does not return a compliment about his physical appearance?

2. Feigning attention in church and prayer groups

Have you noticed a lack of interest in spiritual issues? Does it ever seem as if he’s just using the church as an excuse to spend time around young men? Does he volunteer to mentor in all a male groups?

3. Overly fastidious about his appearance and the home

Natural men have a certain amount of grit about them. They sweat and they smell. Homosexuals often abhor this sort of thing and will also be incredibly particular about the cleanliness of the home. Does your man tweeze his eyebrows, trim his pubic hairs or use face moisturizers? Is he picky about brand name shampoos? Does he spend more time getting ready for a night out than you do?

4. Gym membership but no interest in sports

Gay men use the gym as a place to socialize and to have secret liaisons in the bathrooms. They like to work out their bodies without the competition of sports play. Afterwards, they use the showers and steam rooms to engage in sexual activity beyond the prying eyes of women. If your man returns from the gym too exhausted to talk or have sex, which is a worrisome sign.

5. Clothes that are too tight and too “trendy”

Gay men don’t need words to communicate their availability for sex “hookups.” They silently broadcast the news by showing off their lean, hard bodies in designer clothing labels. If your husband owns skinny jeans and looks at his buttocks in the mirror or if he wears an inordinate number of small a sized t-shirts, it is probably worthwhile to pay more attention to his private activities.

6. Strange sexual demands

Fetishism is a sign that a man is seeking a harder thrill beyond the normal intimacy of heterosexual relations. The woman may not appeal to the deep desires that are coming to the surface as the marriage drags on. If there is a sudden interest in sodomy, sadomasochism, lubricants, roleplay, sex toys or other nontraditional intercourse methods, this is clearly an indication of deep emotional abnormalities.

7. Too many friendly young male friends

Someone who makes an extra effort to surround themselves with younger men should raise concerns in any community. If this is the case with your husband, ask yourself if he prefers their company to that of women. Do they touch each other or embrace in long hugs? Do they exchange expensive, personal gifts like scarves or cologne?

8. Sassy, sarcastic and ironic around his friends

A man who is secretly engaged in homosexual activity with others may exhibit feminine qualities when they get together in a group. In a sense, he has “let his hair down” and this will be seen in excessive back talk and speaking with ones hands.

5 reasons why you are still single in 2020

2019 is over, and you are still a single
pringle. You don’t have anyone to trade love messages with and send attractive and sexy pictures of you. There is no Bae to post on your social media status and caption LOML. There is no one to exhaust the intensity of your emotions on, and there is definitely nobody to open up to with no fear of being vulnerable.

1. You don’t dangle out

How are you going away to assemble Bae at what time you are permanently at at home in considerable tees and on foot around barefooted? Oh holdup, I clearly figured it out.

Tips on how to improve your relationship this year 2020 (check it out)

While every relationship is different, no relationship is perfect. By doing these 10 things to improve your bond, you won’t only ensure a quality relationship with your partner, but you’ll also prove that you’re determined to work for one.

1. Learn to communicate with your partner

Communication is the determining factor of success for every relationship. It’s nice to ask how your partner’s day went, but it’s boring when you ask over and over again. Enhance your conversation by putting in the extra effort to question your significant other on something more specific. Through this adjusted approach, you avoid falling into routine and begin holding more meaningful discussions.

2. Go on regular date night

Amongst both of your busy schedules and nonstop responsibilities, the most foolproof way to guarantee that you make time for each other is to set a night every month dedicated to doing just that. Regardless of if you’re looking to spice up your relationship or wanting an activity that doesn’t include Netflix, the commitment to go on a date is one night — but the happiness that comes from it will last much longer.

3. Express your appreciation

The comfort that a relationship brings is the reason we tend to overlook what our partners do and treat their acts of kindness as our forms of expectation instead. To put it honestly, your partner doesn’t have to fill your gas tank or buy your favorite ice cream — he or she chooses to, and your acknowledgment of this type of effort will reinforce your partner to be thoughtful and remind you to feel thankful.

4. Tweak your schedule

We know — you’re independent and don’t plan on stopping your life for anyone (and you shouldn’t have to). Even though you have other commitments outside of your relationship, it’s a kind gesture to compare both of your schedules to see if it’s possible to spend more time together.

Maybe your partner can go to the gym a little earlier to attend the movie premiere you wanted to attend, or maybe you can wake up earlier to get your projects done so that you can make it to your partner’s intramural game. While you shouldn’t have to sacrifice your life to satisfy your partner, your ability to compromise should be enough to make him or her happy.

5. Remember the small things

Another way to add meaning to your conversation is to truly listen to what your significant other is saying — and talk about it in the future. If your partner mentions a conversation that he or she wants to have with a manager, take note on your calendar and remember to ask about it the day of. The fact that you’re able to refer back to the topics and details that your partner spoke about is one that will touch him or her. Overall, it’s the little things that mean the most, and there’s no better way to show this than starting with your relationship.

6. Let go of the past

As a culprit for many potential arguments and the underlying issue for future ones, what happens in the past doesn’t always stay there — and it’s difficult to move forward in a relationship when you’re still thinking about what happened in it from another time.

If you find yourself continuing to dwell on the past, it might be a sign to take a step back and consider why — are you naturally less forgiving or is what happened something you can’t seem to forgive? By focusing on the reason for this recurring feeling, you’ll find more clarity within yourself and what you want from the relationship with your partner.

7. Show your affection

Along with expressing your gratitude to your partner, expressing actions to show how much you care about him or her is also suggested. From grabbing your partner’s hand at a restaurant to going to bed together at the end of the night, you know how you feel about your partner, and he or she should be able to witness it as well.

8. Learn your partner’s boundaries

Does your partner wish to be left alone when he or she is upset? Does he or she mind that you want to text throughout the day? These questions are simple, but the answers to them will help you understand the boundaries of your partner— and stop you from crossing them. Overall, your partner’s sense of privacy is most likely different from yours, and knowing his or her boundaries is the best way to respect them.

9. Know when to apologize

Sometimes being right isn’t as important as being compassionate. Whereas conflicts with your significant other will vary, not every argument is a challenge that needs to be won. Don’t get us wrong — we aren’t telling you to take blame for everything, but to decide which battles are worth fighting for. Although there’s glory in knowing you’re right, there’s maturity in apologizing during an argument that isn’t as important as the person you’re arguing with.

10. Make time to focus on yourself

How we feel about ourselves is how we’ll act in a relationship — for example, if you lack confidence in yourself, you’ll look for assurance in your relationship. To prevent any toxic behaviors from happening with your partner, it’s essential to have a strong sense of self. Invest in a new hobby, make plans with some friends, and take steps in discovering who you are as a person. By falling in love with yourself, you’ll naturally be your own best version for the person who happens to be falling in love with you.

Instagram to use AI to detect offensive captions

Instagram is to warn users when their captions on a photo or video could be considered offensive.

The Facebook-owned company says it has trained an AI system to detect offensive captions.

The idea is to give users “a chance to pause and reconsider their words”.

Instagram announced the feature in a blog on Monday, saying it would be rolled out immediately to some countries.

The tool is designed to help combat online bullying, which has become a major problem for platforms such as Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook.

Instagram was ranked as the worst online platform in a cyber-bullying study in July 2017.

If a user with access to the tool types an offensive caption on Instagram, they will receive a prompt informing them it is similar to others reported for bullying.

Users will then be given the option to edit their caption before it is published.

“In addition to limiting the reach of bullying, this warning helps educate people on what we don’t allow on Instagram and when an account may be at risk of breaking our rules,” Instagram wrote in the post.

Earlier this year, Instagram launched a similar feature that notified people when their comments on other peoples Instagram posts could be considered offensive.

“Results have been promising and we’ve found that these types of nudges can encourage people to reconsider their words when given a chance,” Instagram wrote.

Chris Stokel-Walker, internet culture writer and author of the book YouTube’s, told the BBC News the feature was part of a broader move by Instagram to be more aware of the wellbeing of its users.

“From cracking down on promoting images of self a harm, to hiding likes so people outwardly are less likely to equate their self a worth with how many people press like on their photos, the app has been making moves to try and roll back some of the more damaging changes its had on society.

Woman Loses Court Battle To Bury Husband Who Died 11 months ago

A woman in Kisumu has lost the rights to bury her husband 11 months after his death, as a court has upheld his wish to be buried at his second wives home.

Mr Silvanus Nyang’wara Mwanja married Ms Siprosa Awino in 1996 but they got separated five years later. They did not have children.
Mr Nyangwara married Ms Grace Were in 1990 and they had five children.
He died in February at Life Care Hospital, where his body has remained to date.

ARGUMENTS

Ms Awino showed up on February 14 to stop Mr Nyang waras burial at his Sinoko home in Bungoma. She later moved the body to Bungoma County Referral Hospital mortuary and then went to court to seek consent to bury him. Senior Resident Magistrate Winfrida Onkunya ruled in June that the man be buried at his second wifes home but Ms Awino filed an appeal at the High Court. Ms Awino said Ms Onkunya misunderstood her husbands wishes on where to be buried as the dead cannot dictate what happens to their bodies.She further argued that the courts decision for the person closest to Mr Nyang’wara to bury him was irrelevant as all the witnesses said he should be buried at his first wifes home in Nyalenda.Ms Awino also said it had not been established, in line with Luo customs, whether her husband had a home in Bungoma.
Ms Were argued that Ms Awino neither checked on nor looked after Mr Nyang wawa since he was diagnosed with cancer.

The court also heard that Mr Nyang wara wished to be buried near a mango tree a few metres at his second wifes home.

His mother and sister agreed that he should be buried in Bungoma.

THE RULING

In his ruling on Thursday, Kisumu High Court Judge Fred Ochieng dismissed Ms Awinos application, saying the magistrates judgment court was fair and thus allowing the first wife to bury Mr Wanja.

“In a nutshell, I find that the judgement rendered was properly served based on analysis on evidences. The appeal fails and is therefore dismissed,” ruled the judge.

Judge Ochieng explained that there is no property in a dead body and that custody and procession belong to the executors until it is laid to rest.

He also said that Mr Nyang’waras, though not legally binding, must be granted.

The judge further noted that the man build two homes in Nyalenda and Bungoma and that he carried an axe, a hoe and a panga as required by Luo customs.

“I find the wish of the deceased to be buried in his home in Bungoma not contrary to the general laws or policies of Kenya and also applicable to persons who subscribe to the Luo customary law.”

The judge, however, granted Ms Awino a seven-day stay order to appeal the ruling.

5 sure ways to stop fighting and start loving the person you love

For a lot of couples, even though there might be love between them, there’s still an underlying tension or distance that seems to always be there.

The fights, arguments and disagreements just seem to erupt out of no where and neither person knows how to stop the pattern.

Some people believe they just need to learn how to “fight fair and that fighting is healthy in relationships.

We don’t believe that fighting is healthy or learn how to “fight fair because you don’t have to fight at all.

The truth is you can look in another direction to resolve your differences.

These 5 ways to create more love have worked for us and others and we invite you to try them in your relationship right now.

1. Let go of the tug-of-war rope

Even though you may think continuing to plant your feet and tug as hard as you can on the “rope” will win the argument for you, in the long term, it won’t. When you let go, you can see how you trigger each other and how you pull away.

Letting go of the rope doesn’t mean sucking in your hurts and putting on a smiling face when you don’t feel like it.

It means being “real” with yourself and with your partner about what you want without blaming the other.

It means consciously deciding not to react from old patterns but rather to make other choices–because the old ways you’ve been dealing with this haven’t worked.

It means being open to another way of looking at the situation and resolving it.

When one person lets go of the “rope,” there’s nothing to fight against and a new way of seeing it all can emerge.

2. Use Magic Words when you talk to each other

It’s a fact

When it comes to your relationships and getting the love you want

All words are NOT created equal.

Some words cause fights and arguments and others don’t.

Here’s a great strategy from our “Magic Relationship Words program you can use right now to cut fights, conflict and disagreements in half

Think about this for a second

One of the ways that many people keep a fight or disagreement going is by blaming and accusing.

You might say something like this

“How could you say or do that?” or “You don’t respect me because you said or did that.

Instead of using phrases that push your partner into being defensive and push him or her away, express what you want more of from your heart.

You might use a phrase like this to help you stay connected even when it’s difficult to do it…

If you think your partner is spending too much time away from the house and away from you, the tendency might be to accuse him or her of ignoring you and the relationship.

Use this phrase instead to open the conversation rather than close it…

“I’d love to spend more time with you. How can we make that work?”

3. Be a goods finder rather than a wrongs finder

To a great degree, the success of your relationship relies on what you both focus on.

Do you focus on what you want and enjoy in the other person or do you focus on what irritates you?
It is pretty “normal” to get caught up in only seeing what irritates you in your partner.
It just seems that as hard as you TRY to not focus on that irritating habit, it just gets bigger.
Believe it or not, many fights and disagreements are born from these petty irritations.
To stop fighting, try this for one day
When your irritation comes up, change it in your mind to something you like, love and appreciate about your partner.
Keep focusing all day on that aspect of him or her and watch what happens.

4. Appreciate Your Partner

Many fights, arguments and ill feelings begin and are kept going because one or both people don’t feel appreciated in the relationships and they don’t know how to get the appreciation they needs so they do the second best things
They pick fights and start arguments to get some attention.
If you feel like you aren’t appreciated, your tendency may probably be to withhold appreciating your partner because who wants to appreciate someone else if they don’t feel appreciated themselves.
In order to break the cycle, just try some sincere appreciation anyway.
And this appreciation should go further than “thank you,” although that’s nice to hear too.
* Important *
When you appreciate someone be specific in your appreciation.
It might be a loving thought that flits through your mind but you never say because you either assume that he or she knows or you don’t say it because you don’t feel appreciated yourself.
If you want to cut the distance and the fights between the two of you, start appreciating.

5. Stop holding grudges and holding onto being right

People hold grudges for years about things that sometimes that can’t even remember exactly what happened to cause them.
If you’re holding onto a grudge and punishing your partner for something that happened long ago but is not happening now and you find that you bring it up over and over
To stop fighting, find a way to resolve it.
Don’t hang onto it.
When you hold onto a grudge and to being right, there’s no room for listening to your partner.
One way to “let go” of your grudge is to open to listening to what your partner has to say with new “ears.”
Listen as if this is something new and listen for any truth at all in what he or she says.
If you want to cut your fights in half, resolve old issues, let them go, and focus only on the issue at hand.

Wait till you get your own. Do not jump at it the first time she asks. Have some dignity, please. Ah! Ah!!

15. Be Loyal

Do no double date. Let her know she is the only “sugar in your small cup of tea” Say it always. These Chic’s can sometimes be insecure.

All You Need To Know About December 26 (Boxing Day)

Ever wondered what Boxing Day is, what it means, and where this unusual name comes from? You may find the answers interesting.

What is Boxing Day?

Firstly, it has nothing to do with the sport of boxing.

Boxing Day is a national Bank Holiday in late December, a day to spend with family and friends and to eat up all the leftovers of Christmas Day. The origins of the day, however, are steeped in history and tradition.

Why Is It Called Boxing Day?

Arguments abound on the origins of the name Boxing Day. All the answers below are valid, so maybe it is one, or even all of them.

The name is a reference to holiday gifts. A ‘Christmas Box in Britain is a name for a Christmas present. Boxing Day was traditionally a day off for servants and the day when they received a ‘Christmas Box from the master. The servants would also go home on Boxing Day to give ‘Christmas Boxes to their families.

The name is a reference to charity drives. A box to collect money for the poor traditionally and placed in Churches on Christmas day and opened the next day – Boxing Day.

The name refers to a nautical tradition. Great sailing ships when setting sail would have a sealed box containing money on board for good luck. Were the voyage a success, the box was given to a priest, opened at Christmas and the contents then given to the poor.

When is Boxing Day?

Boxing Day is the 26th December and is a national holiday in the UK and Ireland.

Activities on Boxing Day

Boxing Day is a time to spend with family or friends, usually those not seen on Christmas Day itself. In recent times, the day has become synonymous with many sports. Horse racing is particularly popular with meets all over the country. Many top football teams also play on Boxing Day.

Boxing Day is also a time when the British show their eccentricity by taking part in all kinds of silly activities. These include bizarre traditions including swimming the icy cold English Channel, fun runs, and charity events.

Fox Hunting on Boxing Day

Until 2004, Boxing Day hunts were a traditional part of the day, but the ban on fox hunting has put an end to this in its usual sense. Hunters will still gather dressed resplendently in red hunting coats to the sound of the hunting horn. But, since it is now forbidden to chase the fox with dogs, they now follow artificially laid trails.

The New Boxing Day Sport – Shopping

Another ‘sport’ to emerge in recent years is shopping. Sales used to start in January, post-New Year, but the desire to grab a bargain and for shops to off-load stock means many now begin on Boxing Day.

Boxing Day in Ireland

In Ireland, Boxing Day is also known as “St. Stephens Day” named after the Saint stoned to death for believing in Jesus. In Ireland on Boxing, there was once a barbaric act carried out by the so-called “Wren Boys.” These boys would dress up and go out, and stone wren birds to death then carry their catch around the town knocking on doors and asking for money, the stoning representing what had happened to St Stephen. Thankfully, this tradition has now stopped, but the Wrens Boys still dress up but instead parade around town and collect money for charity.

Food and Drink on Boxing Day

With guests often popping in for a snack or tipple the food and drink on Boxing Day are more relaxed than Christmas Day.

Lunch will usually be a buffet or leftovers from Christmas lunch. Baked Ham is a popular Boxing Day meat along with pease pudding and of course, mince pies with brandy butter or a slice of Christmas cake or other dessert are almost obligatory.

Latest Dating Traps You Have To Avoid

Gone are the days when our dating life simply meant being in love, going out for dates and the lucky ones later got married and a few unfortunates ended their relationships and move on. Definitely, there were problems in their paradise but quite a different set of hurdles that the millennials, perhaps cannot, relate to these days. The WhatApp and dating app generation have their new world of dating life and with it comes trends, which has a lasting effect on their life. Interestingly, the dating trend that is keeping the youngsters busy these days is called ‘fireworking’. Yes, you read it right. But do not mistake it to the fireworks that lit the sky during Diwali. Or, maybe there is some.

Last year, ‘stashing’ became the most popular dating trend and it spread like a wildfire that caught the fancy of many. Fire working is just the opposite of stashing, which meant keeping a dirty secret. When a person treats his love life like a dirty secret by keeping his lover away from friends and family, his lover becomes the victim of stashing. Now, fire working is exactly it’s opposite. The person who indulges in fire working is called a fire worker, who dates a person only to show off the partner to the world. And he does that for some reasons either to make an ex-partner jealous or just to prove that he has an exciting love life. However, the most important ingredient which goes missing in such relationships is love. The other partner who becomes a victim of fire working may not even be aware of it. So, let’s look at a few signs of fire working.

You are treated like an eye candy

If you feel that you are being treated like eye candy, do not dismiss your doubts as baseless. Fire workers want their partner to be perfect all the time because their only intention is to show off the lover. So, the stress to appear immaculate in front of others is not without a reason.

Frequent social media updates with the partner

Most people love updating pictures with a lover on social media once they make their relationship public. But if a partner falls in love, or pretends to fall in love, just to display it on his social media, this almost qualifies as fire working. Red flag: your partner taking too many selfies with you and uploading it on his Facebook, Instagram or any other social media account even without consulting you may be a bad sign.

The partner grows cold when he is with you

If you notice a sea change in your partner’s affection when you are with friends and when you are alone with him, you need to be careful. This might be an indication that your partner’s affection for you is just a façade meant only for public consumption.

We’re finally approaching the end of the year, when cherished moments of freshly-baked holiday goodies, timeless family traditions, and anticipated gift giving circles can sometimes take over. It may all sound like the ideal Hallmark Christmas Movie, until the inevitable suddenly hits you: soon you may be surrounded by the conversations and questions that you have been dreading. The family that you probably love to pieces will now get the chance to ask you those questions that you know you’re not up to answer. “How’s your dating life going?” “So when are you two going to have a baby?” “What exactly does your business do anyway?” — the list can go on and on.

Rather than stomp down your blissful anticipation for the holidays with dread, put some thought into how you’d like to approach these conversations if they arise.

Inform and Share Without Making Assumptions

In many cases, a loved one may ask a hurtful question completely unintentionally. This is a great opportunity to educate and inform your family and friends. The spotlight is on you, so embrace the chance to share who you are. Rather than jump to conclusions and spend the rest of your dinner annoyed, try to fill them in on your current situation, beliefs, or dreams in an informative manner. This could open new doors and offer a closer connection. So they don’t quite understand what you do in your creative field, or how you make any money? Try showing them samples of your work, or sharing some of the great experiences you have had this year. Remember, your loved ones care about you and probably just want to know more about what is going on in your life.

Emphasize the Positive, But Don’t Shy Away from Complexity

It gets very hard to see someone else happy and smiling when you’re not sharing that joy. As you talk about your past year, emphasize all of the positive experiences you have had and what is bringing you joy. Your family wants you happy and thriving. Though they may not understand all that is happening in your life, they will maybe be able to understand what is bringing you joy.

In addition, try to keep conversations light-hearted. Do politics, religion, or other topics seem to always trigger an uproar with your relatives? In 2018, 53 percent of Americans agreed that talking about politics with people they disagree with is generally stressful and frustrating. Try staying away from those discussions. However, if these topics can’t seem to be avoided (maybe you or a relative work in politics, the conversation naturally builds, or you decide they’re topics you want to take on) try taking the route of the Difficult Conversations Lab conducted at Columbia University and embrace the complexity. You may not agree with the person across the table from you (and maybe never will), but ask questions, listen, and avoid generalizations. When you find yourself on a more positive course, try to talk about the newest recipe you found, a fun trip you and your significant other went on, or t

Incorporate the Buddy System

There is nothing worse than feeling like you are being ganged up on at your own family gathering. Try keeping a sidekick nearby to help move conversation, as international speaker and creator of Differ Well, Rachel Baby, suggested in an interview with Forbes. Is there a sibling or a cousin that you can count on? Can your partner or best friend join you for the holidays this year? Maybe drop a hint to your mom beforehand that she is in charge of keeping a certain topic of your life offs limits. Having someone that can help you answer questions that may be a bit tricky and just be a buddy to laugh it all off can be so helpful. Major points if you and this person can exchange looks across the table and know exactly what the other is thinking!

Offer Holiday Entertainment that Isn’t Your Life

If you are worried that conversation could slim down through the duration of the gets together and point towards you, plan some fun things to keep everyone busy. Try bringing out some fun board games, get a game of football going in the backyard, or organize a trip to the movies. There are plenty of ways to keep family members entertained that don’t consist of drilling each other with intense life questions. Focus on creating memories with each other and simply spending time together. This is far more fun than explaining why you haven’t found a new job yet or sharing how your apps based dating life is going.

Kindly Decline and Redirect the Conversation

Don’t forget that you don’t have to discuss anything you truly are not comfortable with. Remember that you can always kindly suggest talking about something else. Keep your holidays joyous and low-stress by discussing topics that make you happy and enlightened. Never feel that you have to delve into a hurtful experience from the past year, or describe the recent low season of life just to provide conversation over turkey and mashed potatoes. There are millions of other fantastic topics of conversation we can all take a leap into. Take a look at radio host Celeste Hadlee’s amazing advice about conversation and remember that great conversation is like a game of catch. If you aren’t feeling up for a certain topic, kindly pass the ball across the table.

So, bid adieu to the dread of the holiday season. Cherish the moments you get to spend with your family and friends. Life is far too short to choose to only see the negative possibilities in life. Embrace the twinkling lights, delicious food, and the comfort of home. New memories are waiting to be made.

Dozens arrested over WhatsApp global child abuse group

Spanish police say they have made a number of arrests across 11 countries in connection with a WhatApp group for images of child sex abuse.

Many of the “extreme” images in the WhatsApp group had been “normalised by most of its members”, according to police.

33 arrests were made in 11 different countries across three continents, with 17 arrests made in Spain. Many of those arrested or being investigated are under 18, including a 15-year-old boy.

Police arrested two individuals in Uruguay, one of whom was a mother who abused her daughter and then shared the images with the group.

man was also arrested for downloading child abuse images and encouraging other members of the group to make contact with young girls.

Disturbingly, urged them to seek out migrants who would be less likely to report abuse to the police.

The group has been under investigation for more than two years by Spain’s National Police following an email tipoff that alerted the force to the group’s existence.

The Spanish police coordinated their investigation with Europol, Interpol, and the Police in Ecuador and Costa Rica. As a result of this cooperation, arrests were also made in the UK, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Peru, India, Italy, France, Pakistan and Syria.

In a statement, the police said the group shared “paedophilic content, sometimes of extreme severity, together with other content that was legal but was not suitable for minors because of their extreme nature.

Police disclosed that members of the group had even created “stickers”, small digital images similar to emoji, of children being abused. The men and boys arrested in Spain came from a diverse range of social and cultural backgrounds, according to police.

One of the men arrested had fled his home in Italy to Salamanca, when the search was carried out, unaware that it was the Spanish police that had issued the warrant for his arrest.

The investigation will now focus on identifying the children being abused in the images.

The True Origin Of Christmas

Origin of Christmas – The Biblical Account

The origin of Christmas is presented beautifully in the well-known biblical account of Luke:

“And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:1-11).

Origin of Christmas – The Traditions and Controversies

For todays Christian, the origin of Christmas is, and should be, the birth of Jesus Christ as recorded in the Bible. Nothing more and nothing less. However, most of what we witness on December 25th each year has absolutely nothing to do with that blessed day, which probably occurred in late summer or early fall about 2,000 years ago. In fact, most of the customs and traditions of Christmas actually pre-date the birth of Jesus, and many of them are downright deceptive in their meaning and origin. Here are a few examples:

The date of December 25th probably originated with the ancient “birthday” of the son-god, Mithras, a pagan deity whose religious influence became widespread in the Roman Empire during the first few centuries A.D. Mithra was related to the Semitic sun-god, Shamash, and his worship spread throughout Asia to Europe where he was called Deus Sol Invictus Mithras. Rome was well-known for absorbing the pagan religions and rituals of its widespread empire. As such, Rome converted this pagan legacy to a celebration of the god, Saturn, and the rebirth of the sun god during the winter solstice period. The winter holiday became known as Saturnalia and began the week prior to December 25th. The festival was characterized by gifts giving, feasting, singing and downright debauchery, as the priests of Saturn carried wreaths of evergreen boughs in procession throughout the Roman temples.

Variations of this pagan holiday flourished throughout the first few centuries after Jesus Christ, but it probably wasn’t until 336 AD that Emperor Constantine officially converted this pagan tradition into the “Christian” holiday of Christmas.

Origin of Christmas – What Really Matters?

The true origin of Christmas is filled with controversy and compromise. A quick study will reveal a number of disturbing roots that we haven’t been able to cover in this brief article. In short, the Christmas holiday we celebrate today is indicative of Christianity’s willingness to absorb the worlds customs and traditions, and forget its simple roots in the historical reality of Jesus Christ. Christmas should be nothing more than a simple, yet wonderful reminder of Christ’s humble beginning as a human child in this world. His birth merely set the stage for the power, glory, and salvation that would be revealed in His life, death, and resurrection! Whether its December 25th, sometime in late September, or any other day of the year, we should use each and every opportunity to reflect on Jesus Christ and His message of hope for all of us.

Naked Man Arrested for Shouting at Trees

A German man has been arrested after a marriage guidance counsellor advised him to run around naked shouting at trees.

Dieter Braun, 43, from Recklinghausen said the stress release technique had worked perfectly until he was arrested.

He told police that venting his anger on the trees had stopped him shouting at his wife.

If I didnt go to the woods and scream at the trees then my marriage would probably be over, he said.

He added taking his clothes off at the same time made him feel more relaxed.

For me its a type of relaxation therapy. Feeling the breeze on my naked skin really calms me down.

But local police said other visitors to the forest did not find his behaviour relaxing and have now charged him with causing a public nuisance.

A True Story of Campanology

A drunk man who fell asleep and got trapped inside a church rang out SOS in Morse code with the bell. When the man awoke in St Faiths Church in Havant, near Portsmouth, he found the doors locked. Reportedly worried about ghosts, he started ringing out the Morse code for SOS on the church bell, reports Portsmouth Today.

As dusk began to fall, he was still ringing for his life but eventually a local resident realised something was wrong. He alerted two Police Community Support Officers who, in turn, contacted church verger Vicki Mockford who came to the rescue. She said, I was called by police saying someone was using the bell as a sign they were trapped. When we found him inside he told us he went into the church to have a sit down but fell asleep. He told the police he had been drinking which may have made him a bit dozy. He looked quite embarrassed about the whole incident when we found him. Maybe after this he might consider taking up bell ringing as a hobby.

New Regular at the Alexandra Hotel

A new pub landlady got a shock when she discovered one of her regulars is a horse. Jackie Gray recently became landlady at the Alexandra Hotel in Jarrow, Tyneside. She says she got a pleasant surprise when carthorse Peggy joined owner Peter Dolan for a pint. The 12-year-olds tipple is a pint of John Smiths and pickled onion crisps.

Mrs Gray said, When I bought the pub a few weeks ago I heard rumours that one of the regulars was a horse but I didnt quite believe them. It was a hot day when the horse came in and I was shocked at first because I have never run a pub before.

Housemaid Arrested For Poisoning 93-Year-Old Woman

A 19-year-old housemaid from the Republic of Benin had been arrested by the police in Lagos for attempting to kill a 93-year-old woman.

She was alleged to have added a substance suspected to be sniper into Madam Christiana Ogunshina’s tea in their Mende-Maryland residence with a view to killing the nonagenarian.

The spokesman of the Lagos State Police Command, DSP Bala Elkana, confirmed the arrest of the foreigner to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday.

He said that the suspect was working for the daughter of the old woman before the incident happened.

Elkana said that the incident happened to Madam Ogunshina last Saturday at 11, Ajayi St., Mende Maryland in Lagos State where she was living with her daughter.

He said that whenever the old woman’s daughter went to work, she would request her maid to stay with her mother upstairs pending her return.

The police images maker said that last Saturday, the maid went upstairs as usual.

The PRO said that while the suspect was seated, the old woman prepared her morning tea, closed the cup for some minutes and left for her room.

Elkana said that as soon as the old woman left the sitting room, the suspect allegedly opened the cup containing the tea and added the substance.

Elkana added that the suspect, however, did not know that the old woman’s personal maid who was working in the kitchen came to the sitting room and saw the suspect adding the substance into the tea.

He said that the old woman’s maid reported what she saw to her madam, while the suspect left the upstairs to their apartment downstairs to wash clothes.

The PRO said that the old woman then ordered her personal maid to empty the cup of its content and wash the cup.

He said that after the maid had emptied the cup, she discovered some substances at the bottom of the cup, which she showed to her madam.

The spokesman said that the old woman invited her eldest son, one Abayomi who perceived the content in the cup and suspected it to be a poisonous substance.

The PRO said, “Abayomi Ayobami reported the case at the Anthony Police Station at about 1 p.m. on Saturday.

“The police visited and searched the house. They arrested the suspect as well as took away the empty cup that contained the poisoned tea before it was poured away to their station.

The suspect confessed to the offence.

“She alleged that the old woman was always shouting at her and that she was tired of her tantrums, so she decided to poison her that day.”

This is the best color lightening for sleep(check it out)

The idea artificial light from screens is keeping people awake at night is flawed, say scientists who have been studying the best type of lighting to nod off to.

According to the researchers, from Manchester University, this blue light from devices is not the main problem.

They exposed mice to different light settings to study the impact.

The controversial findings, in Current Biology journal, suggest the answer lies in how warm and bright a light is.

Why do the study?

Everyone has a natural, daily wake-sleep cycle.

Their body clock synchronises with the environment so they are alert in the daytime and sleepy at night.

But experts have long suspected exposure to artificial light might be upsetting this alignment.

And there is a popular view artificial blue light – the type that comes from computer screens and mobile phones – has a particularly strong effect.

What did it find?

The team did tests on mice, fixing the brightness to high or low and switching the colour from blue to yellow.

Bright light of either colour was stimulating, rather than restful, as expected.

But when the light was dimmed, blue light was more restful than yellow light.

Lead researcher Dr Tim Brown said the findings matched what happened in the natural world, with bright, warm daylight.

During the daytime, the light that reaches us is relatively white or yellow and has a strong effect on the body clock and around twilight, once the Sun sets, the bluer the light becomes,” he said.

“So if you want to avoid light having a strong effect on your body clock, dim and blue would be the way to go.”

Conversely, bright white or yellow light was better for staying awake and alert.

What does that mean?

Nights mode settings for phones and laptops reduce blue light in an attempt to lessen the damage to sleep.

“At the moment, often what people are doing is adjusting the colour of lighting or visual displays and making the screens more yellow,” Dr Brown said.

“Our prediction is that changing the colour is having exactly the wrong effect.

“Its counteracting any benefit that you might get from also reducing the brightness of the screen.”

Aren’t mice more active at night?

Mice are indeed nocturnal.

But the researchers say the basic way light affects the body clock is the same across all mammals, including humans, meaning the findings should apply to people.

They recommend more research to confirm it.

Dr Manuel Spits chan, from Oxford University, said: “This is fascinating work but we really don’t know yet that the same happens in humans. That’s the difficulty with animal work.

“It should be possible to do tests with people in the future to find out for sure.

“Hungry” Artist Eats Banana Worth N54m

A banana duct-taped to the wall at a posh art gallery and valued at N54 million ($150,000) has ended up in the stomach of “hungry artist”, David Datuna.

Italian artist, Maurizio Cattelan, had bought bananas at a grocery store in Miami, Florida and ducts tapes to Emmanuel gallery wall at Art Basel Miami Beach, a highs profile contemporary art fair.

The single overripe banana ducts taped to the wall, titled comedies went viral last week after Perrotin claimed two editions of the art piece had been sold for $120,000 each.

The gallery and artist then decided to sell the third edition to any interested museum for $150,000.

Unlike dozens of art lovers who have flocked the gallery to take pictures with the artwork, Datuna, a New York-based performance artist, walked up to the ducts taped banana on Saturday, December 7, 2019, peeled it off the wall and ate it, apparently unauthorized.

“Art performance. Hungry Artist,” Datuna said as he ate the banana before he was approached by Peggy Leboeuf, a partner at Perrotin, who questioned him, “Are you kidding?”

“No,” Datuna replied.

The artist was not arrested but his details were taken down and he was immediately asked to leave the fair. Leboeuf said it's unlikely the gallery will press for action against the artist.

A banana duct-taped to the wall at a posh art gallery and valued at N54 million ($150,000) has ended up in the stomach of “hungry artist”, David Datuna.

Italian artist, Maurizio Cattelan, had bought bananas at a grocery store in Miami, Florida and ducts taped to Emmanuel Perrotin gallery wall at Art Basel Miami Beach, a highs profile contemporary art fair.

The single overripe banana ducts taped to the wall, titled Comedian went viral last week after Perrotin claimed two editions of the art piece had been sold for $120,000 each.

The gallery and artist then decided to sell the third edition to any interested museum for $150,000.

Unlike dozens of art lovers who have flocked the gallery to take pictures with the artwork, Datuna, a New York-based performance artist, walked up to the duct-taped banana on Saturday, December 7, 2019, peeled it off the wall and ate it, apparently unauthorized.

“Art performance. Hungry Artist,” Datuna said as he ate the banana before he was approached by Peggy Leboeuf, a partner at Perrotin, who questioned him, “Are you kidding?”

“No,” Datuna replied.

The artist was not arrested but his details were taken down and he was immediately asked to leave the fair. Leboeuf said it's unlikely the gallery will press for action against the artist.

The banana was replaced minutes later as the work comes with a Certificate of Authenticity that allows owners to replace the banana.

Police officers have been deployed to guard the replacement banana, according to the BBC.

Datuna posted a clip of the incident on his Instagram page and described the artwork as “very delicious”.

“I love Maurizio Cattelan artwork and I really love this installation,” his caption read.

He said in another posted video that his action was not about publicity.

Cattelan, the artist behind the banana, made headlines in September 2019 when another one of his artworks, a toilet made entirely from 18-carat-gold, was stolen from Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, England.

The fully functioning toilet, titled “America”, was installed as part of an exhibition and said to be worth around $6 million. Six people have been arrested and questioned in connection to the theft.

The will of an elderly woman

I’m half blind, cant hear anything quieter than a jet engine, take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. Have bouts with dementia. Have poor circulation; hardly feel my hands and feet anymore. Cant remember if I’m 85 or 92. Have lost all my friends. But, thank God, I still have my drivers license.

I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctors permission to join a fitness club and start exercising. I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, by the time I got my leotards on, the class was over.

Two Old Guys at Dinner

An elderly couple has dinner at another couples house, and after eating, the wives leave the table and go into the kitchen. The two gentlemen were talking, and one says, Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly.

The other man asks, What is the name of the restaurant?

The first man thinks and thinks and finally asks, What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know… The one that’s red and has thorns.

Do you mean a rose?

Yes, that’s the one, replied the man. He then turns towards the kitchen and yells, Rose, whats the name of that restaurant we went to last night?

10 Signs You Really Love A Guy

So, there’s a man in your life. But you’re not sure whether you really do like him, or whether you’re just kidding yourself.
You may well have felt betrayed by your feelings in the past.

There may have been times when you were truly convinced you liked someone. You were sure that, this time around, it was real.
And then, suddenly, you found that your feelings had changed, or you realized that you were never that into him in the first place and you looked around and found yourself in a situation that it was tricky to get out of.
You really don’t want that to happen again.
Are you worried that you’re just lonely, or that it’s just the attention you like, not the man?
Or, are you concerned with the idea of having a man in your life that you like? Are you unsure that you like him for who he really is?

Do you blow hot and cold? Do you feel like you’re head over heels one day, and then indifferent the next?
Are you confused about your feelings, and searching for some clarity in your romantic life?
Hopefully, the signs below will help you start to figure out whether, deep down, what you’re feeling for this guy is real or not.

That way, you can decide whether to continue to put your energies into cultivating this new relationship, or to end things with him now, before you both get hurt.

1. It feels natural to be around him.

When you first spend time with him, when the sexual tension is running high, you’ll probably feel more than a bit flustered in his presence.
But it should also feel natural to be with him.
Conversation should flow, and you shouldn’t need to search around for topics to discuss or try to fill awkward silences.
You should feel able to be yourself around him and enjoy a connection that goes beyond the purely physical.
Nothing about the time you spend with him should feel forced.

2. You’ve had conversations that go beyond the superficial.

If you don’t know his surname and haven’t discussed your pasts, your jobs, your dreams, or your families, it’ll be pretty hard to know who he really is.
But if you’ve found that the two of you have naturally started to open up to each other about deeper things and you like what you’ve discovered about him so far, that’s an excellent sign that your feelings could be genuine.

3. You think about him all the time.

If you’re only with someone because you don’t like the idea of being alone or because you’re bored, then when you’ve got other company, are occupied doing fun things, or are getting attention from other men, he’ll probably be the last thing you’re thinking about.
On the other hand, if you find that even he occupies your mind when you’re out and about and socializing, that’s an excellent sign that you really do like this guy.
If you really like him, you’ll be thinking about him. All. The. Time.
You’ll get distracted at work and find that your friends have started telling you off for daydreaming when they’re trying to talk to you or tell you a story.
You’ll be constantly waiting for him to text you back, wanting him to be the one to comfort you when you’re upset, and you’ll be thinking about him first thing in the morning and last thing at night.
He’ll never be far from your thoughts, no matter how often you actually see him.

4. You always mention his name.

When you’re chatting to your mates, you bring him up.
You tell stories about that funny thing he said or did.
You just can’t help mentioning him, and they’ve started noticing.

5. This hasn’t happened overnight.

You didn’t meet this guy last week.
If you’ve been on quite a few dates and known him for a while now and things are gradually building, that’s an excellent sign that this could develop into a healthy relationship.
If he’s only just come into your life, you need to give things a chance to blossom and grow, and give your feelings a chance to mature.

6. You’ve been getting jealous.

Much as you hate to admit it, you’ve been getting twinges of jealousy.
If you didn’t like him, you wouldn’t notice him mentioning or speaking to other women, let alone get jealous about it.

But if you find yourself on high alert whenever he’s around other women and have your ears pricked for mentions of his exes or female friends, that’s a very good sign you like him.

We should never allow jealousy to rule us or get out of hand, but a pang of jealousy here and there is only natural.

7. You struggle to picture your life without him.

You don’t know how it happened, but you struggle to picture what life would look like if he wasn’t in it.

You can’t quite remember what it was like when he wasn’t around.

He’s become a big part of your life, and you’d like it to stay that way.

8. You’ve started to picture a future together.

You can imagine a shared future with this guy From what you know of him so far, you think the two of you have complimentary life goals, that you’d make a good team, and that you could bring out the best in each other.

You’ve found yourself dreaming about where you might live, or the adventures you might go on together.

Or, in the less distant future, you’re thinking about fun things you could do together at Christmas, or a few months from now.

You’re excited about making plans with him.

9. Your friends can see how smitten you are.

Your friends can tell how much you like this guy, even if you’re still unsure.

They’ve seen the way you’ve been behaving and the way you talk about him, and they know that you’re totally head over heels.

10. You’re interested in more than just his body.

The sex, if you’ve gotten that far, is great. But you’re not ringing him up or messaging him just for more of the same.

You like his mind, as well as his body.

You could spend hours talking to him. You like hearing about his take on the world and you’re genuinely interested in his opinions on things.

You want to spend time with him, even if that time doesn’t include getting physical.

Google scrapped Chrome 79 update over major bug

Google has scrapped its latest Chrome update following an outpouring of complaints over lost data.

Search engine giant Google has been forced to halt its rollout of its latest Chrome update for Android after a serious flaw was found to be deleting user data and resetting mobile apps.
After the update went live on December 10th,

Google was inundated with complaints from users who had lost essential login data in third-party apps after installing Chrome 79.
One developer said: “This is a catastrophe. Our users’ data are being deleted as they receive the update.” Others said their apps had been flooded with negative reviews on Google’s Play Store after the bug made the unusable.

Another developer of a mobile cash management app said: “When I say ‘broken’, I mean that their encrypted login information has been wiped and they can’t remember their credentials (and resetting them are practically impossible in the case of our app).”
Google developers said they had made a mistake with the update by forgetting to move the contents of local storage or web SQL into the new Chrome 79 directory, making the data inaccessible for all users.

These storage systems allow a website or web app to store data on a user’s device, inside a user’s Chrome profile directory.

local storage and web SQL are frequently used by mobile app developers. These apps are dependant on mechanisms like local storage or web SQL to save settings and user data locally.

By the time the Google halted the update already 50% had been rolled out to Android users worldwide.

Google confirmed that any app that Chrome via Android’s built-in web view system could be affected. The company said it could take up to a week to fix the issue.

According to The Register, the update does not delete the data but makes it invisible, which it can be retrieved by a developer or debug tool.

It now appears Google plans to revert the storage location back to where it was, which means the new data the users have created will become invisible, but the old data will return.

Popular Nollywood Actor Explains How He Contracted HIV

Popular Nollywood actor Hanks Anuku is a household name. In fact, the Auchi Polytechnic graduate has paid his dues in the movie industry with movies like; Rambo, Men on the hard way, Fools on the Run, Bitter honey and many others

Known for his coarse voice, Hanks was born on the 27th of August, 1960 in Ibadan, he attended Loyola College Ibadan and graduated from Auchi Polytechnic, Edo state in 1981.

The Nollywood actor revealed he contracted the HIV virus from his adulterous ways and knowingly infected his wife as well. In an interview, Hanks revealed he spent 6 months in Zambia where he contacted the disease.
“Life in Zambia was heaven on earth because we could enjoy life, moving in all places but I was missing my family.

During that time I had several sexual activities and I slept with different women. When I came back home I never took care of the family. I started drinking like a fish and became an irresponsible husband leaving the entire burden to my wife,” he said.

He continued saying;

“I got tested while I was in Zambia after one of my girlfriends advised me about her pregnancy. She had gone for pregnancy tests and during that time she was tested for HIV and the results were shocking, she was positive. She forced me to get tested but I could not come to terms with the results. After I got tested I came back to Zimbabwe and I kept quiet about the issue. I never told my wife about the issue. I infected her but I regret. I, later on, received some counselling and it went well,” he explained

“During my peak of popularity, I had sex with approximately 80 women, within Harare’s and Zambia. In 2002 it was so amazing to be on TV. I abused the fame. To make matters worse I lacked counselling and I failed to handle it properly, leaving me in this mud. I am now a born again Christian with UFIC under the guidance of Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa.

Weird Hangover Cures From Around The World

The party season is going strong and many of us are not feeling quite as fresh as we did at the start of the month.

Between work parties, 12 pubs and catching up with friends over a few pints, it can be all too easy to overindulge and be left feeling the worse for wear.

While hangovers are universal how we handle them isn’t and ebookers have compiled a list of 100 Hangover Cures From Around The World.

Vodka socks, sparrow droppings, raw eels and even voodoo… here are some of the more hairs raising cures from around the world.

1) Haiti – Voodoo

When we’re suffering after a heavy night it can be tempting to blame everyone else for how we’re feeling.

Haitians take this to the extreme by punishing the bottle of booze that did the damage.

They do so by sticking 13 black pins into the cork and sealing it, believing it’ll free them from pain.

2) Estonia – Vodka socks

If you’re feeling unwell after too many shots there’s a bizarre Estonian tradition that believes the cure could be in your socks.

The technique is to soak your socks in vodka and hot water. Then put them on, settle back with a cup of tea and sweat out the booze.

3) USA – Swilling sweat after a run

While crawling under the duvet is preferable for many of us, others swear by going for a jog.

Native Americans take things a step further though – they think you need to taste the sweat.

So after you’ve dragged yourself out for a run take a swill of your sweat, spit it out and your hangover could be gone.

4) Vietnam – Tape On Forehead

We’ve all been at the point where you would desperately do anything to relieve a thumping headache.

The Vietnamese believe if you place tape on your forehead over the acupuncture points this could help the pain.

5) Hungary – Sparrow droppings in brandy

After drinking many of us swear never to touch a drop of alcohol again but this old Hungarian cure is an extreme hair of the dog.

Some say if you get a sparrow to do their business in a brandy glass, swirl it around and knock it back you’ll be right as rain.

Probably one to avoid though – not only does it sound grim but we’re not sure how hygienic it would be.

6) South Africa – sheep’s brain

Again not one for the faint-hearted, but apparently sheep brain could help when your own feels scrambled. In South Africa a traditional hangover cure is to melt a sheep’s stomach walls in a pot with wit bits moonshine, Umqombothi beer or any of the country’s famed wines.

7) Italy – Deep fried canary

Ancient Romans might have been ahead of their time when it came to munching on deep fried goodies as a hangover cure.

They used to believe eating a deep fried canary would help ease your stomach.

8) Italy – Dried bull penis

Italians are the brains behind another quirky hangover cure.

An old Sicilian belief is that nibbling a bull’s private parts can help the morning after the night before – but their golden rule was it had to be cut and dried first.

9) USA – Hangover Heaven

Have you ever been suffering deeply after a heavy night’s partying and just wished there could be a quick fix?

Our prayers seemed to have been answered with the IV drip craze, which was born in Las Vegas clinic Hangover Heaven.

Clients are hooked up and left to relax as they are tube-fed a cocktail including vitamins, antioxidants, hangover and nausea medicine.

The treatment has caused some controversy but A-list fans can’t get enough.

10) Medieval England – Raw eels & almonds

Warning! Do not try this cure as it could be your last Christmas.

The Medieval idea was to encourage sore-headed drinkers to munch bitter almonds and raw eels.

Not surprisingly its popularity has worn off over the years.

32 year old Nigerian man explains how he killed his 72 year old father

A 32-year-old man, Ibrahim Isiaka, who lives in Alagbaka Area of Ashi in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on Thursday narrated how he killed his 72-year-old biological father, Mr. Busari Isiaka.

Isiaka was among the 40 suspects paraded by the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Shina Olukolu, at the command’s headquarters in Eleyele, Ibadan.

The suspects according to Olukolu were arrested based on allegations of kidnapping, armed robbery, murder, conspiracy and cultism.

Isiaka, while speaking said he did not have intention to kill his father, saying he was engaged in a heated argument with his father and in annoyance used his two hands to push his father on the chest from a storey building.

He stated that his father fell on the staircases and died in the process. But he could not articulate why he pushed his father.

“On that day, I went upstairs to meet him. He had dressed up and he was about to leave for an outing. I pushed him. Since I was born, I have not been fighting him. The only thing we used to fight on was the way he used to drink to stupor. But on that day, I just went upstairs and I pushed him. He fell on the staircases and rolled down. My mother is dead. He died many years ago.”

Olukolu, while speaking, maintained that Isiaka was arrested by the police in the state for allegedly killing his 72-year-old biological father, Busari Isiaka.

Olukolu explained that Isiaka purportedly killed his father on November 11, 2019 at about noon and the incident was reported at Ashi Divisional Police Headquarters at about 6p.m on the same day.

He allegedly engaged his father, who was said to be a retired military man, in a fist scuffle, and in the process strangled him. He was said to have called his two brothers, Taoheed Isiaka and Murtala Isiaka , and narrated the ordeal to them.

“His two brothers immediately raced to their father’s house and prepared his corpse for burial without reporting to the police to conceal the heinous crime perpetrated by their brother, Ibrahim Isiaka . Their father, Busari Isiaka, was hurriedly buried the same date.

“Ibrahim Isiaka was thereafter arrested along with his two brothers. He confessed to the commission of the crime while his two brothers also confessed to have buried their father the same day to prevent the police from arresting Ibrahim Isiaka as advised by some people.

Ibrahim’s elder brother, Taoheed, 41, also told journalists that he was not at the scene when the incident occurred, and that their sibling, Murtala, 36, was also not around. But they received a call that Ibrahim and their father were fighting and the old man had died.

“I was at a site when I received a call, and I rushed to my father’s house. On getting, I discovered that it was true that my father had died. So, I informed my father’s younger sibling about the development and he told me that he was at Adeoyo Hospital. About one hour later, he called me that he could not come and that we children of the deceased should organise for his burial.

“Our father was a Muslim and we invited Islamic clerics that conducted a brief funeral service in our house and therefore we buried him within the compound. But somebody we did not know reported the matter to the police and few days after the burial, the three of us were arrested by the police. Apart from Ibrahim, myself and Muritala were arrested because we did not report the matter to the police.

No fewer than five suspected kidnappers that have purportedly terrorised Ibarapa axis of Oyo State and that took part in the kidnap of some lecturers of Oyo State College of Agriculture and Technology (OYSCATECH), Igbo-Ora were also paraded by the police boss in the state.

Rat Attack India Flight Air Plane

An Air India flight flying from Hyderabad to Visakhapatnam was delayed for 12 hours after a rat was spotted in the cabin.

Flight AI-952 was due to depart at 06:10 a.m. on Sunday but after the rat was spotted passengers were told to disembark the plane which did not leave until later in the day at 5.30 p.m. according to the Times of India.

The passengers were told to disembark the plane and pest control proceeded to remove the rat and fumigate the plane before the airline let people back on.

According to aviation news site Simple Flying, the presence of rats on flights is a relatively common reason for delays, due to the fear that they may chew and destroy wires on the plane.

Air India officials confirmed to the Times of India that the plane was delayed as a result of there being a rat on board.

The hour-long flights departure from Rajiv Gandhi International was ultimately delayed until 5:30 p.m, according to The Times of India, almost 12 hours after its scheduled departure.

The flights delay was more than 10 times longer than the flight itself, which covered around 315 miles from the central city of Hyderabad to Visakhapatnam, which is on India’s east coast.

Business Insider was unable to reach Air India for comment by phone or email Wednesday afternoon.

The passengers were asked to disembark the plane after the rodent was spotted and pest control was called in to remove the rat, according to the Deccan Chronicle.

“The rat was located and trapped. Then the aircraft was fumigated,” a representative from Air India told the Deccan Chronicle.

According to aviation news site Simple Flying, the presence of rats on flights is a relatively common reason for delays, due to the fear that they may chew and destroy wires on the plane.

Similar incidents have occurred on planes from Alaska Airlines, Air Berlin and Air Canada.

The rat incident is the second time in recent months that Air India has faced delays caused by animals. In September, an Air India flight was delayed by two hours after a swarm of bees settled on the cockpit window, obscuring pilots vision and attacking staff who tried to remove them.

The flight, from Kolkata in Indias northeast to Agartala, on the border with Bangladesh, had 136 passengers on board, including the Bangladeshi information minister.

Twitter prepares to delete accounts of inactive users(read, don’t be a victim)

Twitter will begin deleting accounts that have been inactive for more than six months, unless they log in before an 11 December deadline.
The cull will include users who stopped posting to the site because they died – unless someone with that person’s account details is able to login.

It is the first time Twitter has removed inactive accounts on such a large scale.
The site said it was because users who do not login were unable to agree to its updated privacy policies.

A spokeswoman also said it would improve credibility by removing dormant accounts from people’s follower counts, something which may give a user an undue sense of importance. The first batch of deleted accounts will involve those registered outside of the US.
The firm bases inactivity on whether or not a person has logged in at least once in the past six months. Twitter said the effort is not, as had been suggested by some users on the network, an attempt to free up usernames.
That said, previously unavailable usernames will start coming up for grabs after the 11 December cutoff – though Twitter said it would be a gradual process, beginning with users outside of the US.

In future, the firm said it would also look at accounts where people have logged in but don’t do anything on the platform. A spokeswoman would not elaborate, other to say that the firm uses many signals to determine genuine human users – not just whether they interact with, or post, tweets.

The site has sent out emails to users of accounts that will be affected by the deletions. The firm would not say how many current accounts fit the criteria, although it is expected to be in the many millions. It will send out more notice closures closer to the deadline.

The cull will not affect Twitter’s reported user numbers, as the firm bases its usage level only on users who login at least once a day. According to its latest earnings report, from September, Twitter has 145m “monetisable” daily active users (users who come into contact with Twitter’s advertising on a daily basis).

“As part of our commitment to serve the public conversation, we’re working to clean up inactive accounts to present more accurate, credible information people can trust across Twitter,” the firm said about the upcoming account removals.

“Part of this effort is encouraging people to actively login and use Twitter when they register an account, as stated in our inactive accounts policy.

It means users who have died will have their accounts removed unless a loved one or other person is already in possession of their login details, and is able to sign in and accept Twitter’s latest privacy policy.

Twitter’s current policy offers only deactivation of a dead person’s account once a trusted thirds patty – a parent, for example – has proven their identity. However, the policy states that in no circumstances would Twitter grant access to the account, which would prevent deletion.

The firm does not, unlike Facebook, offer a “memorialisation” option that freezes the account in place and disallows new interactions – a measure to prevent abuse.

Since inactivity is based on logging in, not posting, bot accounts – such as those which automatically tweet news or alerts – would also come under the cull if the account owners do not login before the December deadline. So too would accounts set up specifically as an archive, such as @POTUS44, a collection of all the tweets made by President Barack Obama while in office

What it takes to be Miss World

For a little girl watching Jamaicas Toni-Ann Singh being crowned by her predecessor in a surreal, tear- jerking moment, with sheer joy and glamour seeping through even the TV screen, being Miss World means being a celebrated and adored princess.

But amidst the statuesque ladies, shiny crown and beautiful, glistening evening gowns lies a wealth of history and an important platform for the discussion of societal change.

Both Miss World and Miss Universe are among the big four international beauty pageants. They are widely covered and broadcast by media, and are considered prestigious. Miss Earth and Miss International complete the foursome.

Miss World

Miss World began as a bikini contest during the Festival of Britain celebrations in 1951, and was initially known as the Festival Bikini Contest. The show aimed to get people warmed up to the idea of bikinis, which were widely regarded as controversial and indecent at the time.

The first ever Miss World, Kerstin Hakkanson from Sweden, was crowned in a bikini. This sparked a worldwide debate, with religious countries threatening not to send delegates to future events. Further still, the bikini was condemned by the Pope.

Bowing to the pressure, the pageant replaced bikinis with more modest swimwear, coupled with a sarong for crowning. In the late 70s, this was replaced with the much more socially acceptable evening gown.

In the 80s, the show shifted and aligned itself with the slogan beauty with a purpose which changed the focus of the show from physical attributes and incorporated traits such as personality and intellect.

In 2014, Miss World banned the swimsuit category in a bid to present the ladies in a more modest light.

“The organization has decided to take itself out of the swimsuit world because it isnt the path theyre trying to take,” Chris Wilmer, the national director of Miss World America/Miss United States organization, said at the time, “Its not just a beauty contest, its beauty with a purpose. There didnt seem to be a purpose to have the swimsuit.”

A total of 115 women compete for the Miss World crown.

The Miss World winner gets perks, of course, but the exact awards have not been exposed to the public. They include prize money, the coveted Miss World title, and an engaging job with the Miss World Organisation as an ambassador.

“Miss World should be a spokesperson who can help a community,” Chris Wilmer said, “She’s more of an ambassador, not a beauty queen. Its more about the outreach and what a woman could do with a title like Miss World.”

Miss Universe

Miss Universe was founded in 1952. The first pageant of its kind was held in the same year on Long Beach, California, and was won by Armi Kuusela from Finland.

Donald Trump bought the pageant in 1996, and the headquarters moved from Los Angeles to New York City. Trump sold the Miss Universe Organisation to a talent agency and entertainment company in September 2015.

The selection process for Miss Universe begins with countries having an individual selection exercise. This kicks off through local subdivision pageants. The winners then move to compete in a national pageant. Not all countries opt for this internal selection.

According to stakeholders, the pageant does not just seek beauty in the contestants, but rather focuses on attributes like good manners, culture and intelligence.

80 women vie for the Miss Universe crown.

The winner is awarded a lucrative one-year contract with the Miss Universe Organization, a cash allowance during the period of her reign, New York Film Academy Scholarship, a high-end apartment in New York, a modelling portfolio and many more goodies to boot.

The title comes with vast responsibilities. After crowning, the winner is expected to make appearances at media outlets, charity organisations and sponsor events. She spends her reign representing the various causes of the Miss Universe Organisation and raising awareness and funds for charitable associations.

All these are duties that require dedication and hard work, a far cry from what anyone would expect a princess life to be like, glamorous and luxurious while the servants tend to her. Instead, it is a role which comes with much responsibility and even more expectation. After all, even a real monarch isn’t all beauty and gowns, he/she a worker, charity front runner and is dedicated to serving the society.

Mancity and Arsenal agree Mikel Arteta’s deal

Mikel Arteta will be named as Arsenal manager within the next 48 hours.
It is understood that Arsenal and Manchester City have reached an agreement over Arteta’s departure to take over at the Emirates.
Mirror Sport revealed on Tuesday that Arteta, 37, has agreed to take the job after negotiations on a three-and-a-half-year contract.

Arteta still travelled with the City squad to their Carabao Cup tie on Wednesday night but Pep Guardiola has given his blessing.
Arsenal are now in the final pieces of completing the deal and want to announce it before Saturday’s trip to Everton but there is still paperwork which may mean it could be delayed even to Friday.
But all parties are now in agreement and the deal is effectively done having been rubber-stamped with Arsenal director Josh Kroenke. It also comes with the blessing of former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger who believes Arteta has the credentials to be a huge success.

Wenger, currently in Doha in his new role with FIFA, said: “I believe that Arteta has certainly a great future, he has certainly learned a lot in his first position as an assistant coach.
“After that as well he will have to deal with the fact that he has no experience at that level and he will have to get surrounded well, have a good environment at the club.
“The most important thing is that every club, Arsenal especially, is built on special values. Inside the club, people have to take care of that. That is the most important thing.
“What makes a club great is the values of the club.

You have to be faithful to that and continue to develop that and he will have to respect that if he comes in.
“The club has to make the right decisions. It is built on good values and good players. The club has to get those two together.
“I will support him, just as I have supported Freddie Lung berg and I support Arsenal.

Wenger did, however, admit he is sad to see his club currently stuck in mid-table after he led them to three titles and made them a European heavyweight.

But Wenger refused to be critical of Unai Emery who was sacked after 18 months in charge and also questioned some of the signings in recent times which has not worked.

He said: “I have given a big part of my life, 22 years in the career of a football manager is not nothing.

“When I left, I wanted this club to have stability. Let’s not forget we were 20 consecutive years in the top four.

“The last year was a bit more difficult but we had stability. What you need to find is consistency now.

“Arsenal is going through a very difficult period. It’s better I don’t comment too much on that. I just suffer, like every other supporter.

“I don’t want to judge that (Emery). When Unai was in charge I supported him. He was unlucky because he had a bad spell.

“When you don’t win for a while, a football manager always has to reduce the crisis time because patience is very short. I felt sorry for him.

“When I left, the club was in a very strong financial position and they bought many players in-between. They have not all worked out.

”I believe that its not a question of time. The change can be very efficient very quickly, its just about the right decision-making and that’s all that its about in football, its about good players.

“We speak about the success of Liverpool, of course, they have a great manager, but you have to say as well that in the last three-four years, they bought the right players.

Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s brother Willy has questioned the appointment on social media as he wrote: “Ljungberg, Arteta is the same. No experience.

5 WhatsApp contacts you must delete before 2020(a must)

WhatsApp needs no introduction. It is undoubtedly the king of cross-platform instant messaging applications popular with end-users who do not have unlimited text messaging. Beyond its social networking capabilities, it has also allowed more businesses to market their products and services at no cost to their immediate contacts.

One would think that with the proximity WhatsApp affords everyone and every business, it will make social interaction easier and selling and buying easier for especially small businesses but it hasn’t been largely so. Amongst so many factors, small business owners would need to take a second look at their contact list as it constitutes who appears on their Whatsapp and start considering trimming down their old contacts and adding more valuable ones that can become clients and customers.

There are 5 of such contacts you as an entrepreneur should consider delisting from your contact before 2020.

1. WWShopper

People who see what you are selling and buys from someone

These are the set of contacts who will consistently check your statuses, admire it, say they love it, show it to friends around but only end up asking you how much you sell. If the asking would later translate to purchase that will be okay; but no, they just want to have an idea of how much you sell to save up to buy from some random Instagram seller that has 1000 followers with 100 posts. In two weeks you’ll see this WhatsApp Window Shoppers (WWS) rocking exactly similar items they inquired and they can be so funny, they would prefer to buy at a higher cost because they want to prove a point; the point I don’t know.

2. WBBW

People who see what you are selling and looks away all the time

The only word I can ascribe to a contact who sees quality items on sale and looks away without a simple compliment is either Wickedly Broke or Broke Wickedly. Even to say ‘’Well done’’, I love your stuff, na wahala. A Yoruba proverb says “Lets appreciate the man who sees us and frown, after all, there are some who saw us and never even did as though they did. As terrible as the WWS are, at least they will ask for the price but not these set. They will check out all your posts but to just compliment “This is quality” or “I love this’’ they will never do. All they do is move to the next persons status and the next till the next hour when they do the same again.

3. WHATSAPP ABUSERS:

People who saw your Status consistent and never said Hi

Let’s even assume that WhatsApp is just purely for what it is called ‘’ a social messaging app’’. How do you have a contact on a social messaging app for 365 days and not a single ‘’HI’’ or ‘’HELLO’’? It’s either you delist the contact or the contact delists you. When you need yourselves, you will get it from their friend -#MyOpinion

WhatsApp abusers as their name suggests are only interested in your status updates not socializing or your well-being per see. You see them check out all your posts but they will never say “Hello”. Even when you make attempts at checking up on them, their response could get you depressed the coldness, late responses, the one-word replies, etc. They can so form business you would think they are responsible for moving the world clock. No matter what you do to get social with them, don’t expect them to ever chat you up first.

4. WHATSAPPATIONAL SPEAKERS:

People who you only get their message when they broadcast

These sets are quite peculiar. They will only remember you when they are about to send their next broadcast. If your name on their contact list starts with A, you would be their regular target. Expecting What’s a patio nail Speakers to check on you or buy from you is like expecting a cat to love bones. They most times don’t share anything in common with you but, for some reason, they are your contact. If just occupying your contact list is all they do, that will be okay but these set of WhatsApp contact will ensure you are part of their broadcast list any time they get their “copy and paste” posts. They will suddenly turn to motivational speakers or pastors and expects you to type “AMEN” to their stolen prayer points.

5. FAKE NEWS MERCHANT

People who only forward unverifiable messages

These set WhatsApp contacts are the biggest carrier of all the news and information around the world with no single diploma in journalism, no certificate on research and no sense of responsibility to fact-check their information. You see them forward and at times put ‘’Sent as received to recuse them from the consequence of the information they forwarded.

Ask them whether they have read the information they sent, they will most likely refer to the headline alone because most time doesn’t read through. They are the biggest purveyor of devotionals, prayer points, tale gist, and gossips. If it was only that, it would be good but the element of falsehood and unverifiable information they forward with confidence is alarming.

WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform instant messaging application that allows iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone and Nokia smartphone users to exchange text, image, video and audio messages for free. If we take advantage of it to patronize friends and family in businesses, also use it to check on the well-being of colleagues, old friends, etc, we would have fewer people in depression and ultimately make the world a better place with the use of technology.

Signs Your Partner shows when they really want to marry you

People come up with all sorts of stories these days about marriage when truly they actually want to do damage. As an individual, you should be smart to read between the lines and see the vivid signs.

But it all lies in your hands to act and take the needed decision. It is not about dragging the horse to the water, it’s whether the horse really wants to drink.

Read these signs carefully and make them your best friend. These sure signs will help you detect the time-waster from afar.

1. He says it

If your guy asks you how you want your dream wedding to be, your preferred wedding colours, ring size or likes to raise some important aspect of the wedding he is particular about, then he is definitely planning to settle down with you.

2. He plans with you in mind

Men naturally are wired to know the details and intricacies of every project they want to get involved in. Yes! project. A wedding is like a project to a man, and factors such as accommodation, career development, finances etc. are considered. The interesting thing about this is that he plans all this with you in mind. He is genuinely concerned about how these seemingly minute details will affect your life.

3. He delights in your happiness

If a guy goes out of his way consistently and genuinely to do tasks or go on events he normally would not go to, just to make you happy, he is definitely gearing to pop up the marriage question. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean those “escortoryors”-professional escorts on the prowl who pretend to please you. The serious marriages minded guy does not complain about it. He does not care how he is going to look before his friends. Watch out for his body language when he is accompanying you, Is he comfortable? He might not be excited, but is he there mind, body and soul? Is he genuinely interested in knowing more about what you love?

4. He helps you become better

A guy who is ready to get married to a woman, genuinely wants her to make progress. Guys want their women to rep them in a good way, so they want to help their women become better. He always wants to know about your career, job, hobby or craft. Does he proffer solutions to challenges that seem to weigh you down? Now I do not mean being possessive, judgemental and demeaning. Traits of jealousy and competition are a NO-NO.

5. He entrusts you with his life

Hey! Ladies, this is not to say if your guy is not telling you things, he is not ready to get married. One thing you have to understand is that trust is earned. A guy who wants to get married to you will eventually open up to you when he finds out you are genuinely concerned about his welfare. We call it wife material. When a guy finds his “wife material he starts asking for your opinion on everything, he opens his inner thoughts, fears and deep feelings. He practically shares his life with you. That does not mean he is not ready for marriage if he is not doing all this now. It is a gradual process. Give him time, and give him that motherly love and care without judging him.

6. Family links

Ole Gunnar Solskjear’s Manchester United was held to a 1–1 draw by Duncan Ferguson’s Everton at Old Trafford On Sunday. But the Red Devils still looks like a team under construction which requires some reinforcements either in the January transfer window or in the summer.

Manchester United’s Edward Woodward has since make available the sum of £250 million transfer budjet available for the signing of some new faces which will add some strength in depth to Solskjear team in January. Not only this but also, Solskjear has informed the club’s hierarchy that new players are needed to be brought to the team if the Red Devils are to challenge for the qualification of the UEFA Champions league come this season.

The manager has also come out and say that the club will strengthen during the opening of any transfer window where they deemed it fit. He said it in a statement:

“I’d been watching. I had a clear idea of what a Man United team should look like,” Solskjaer said. “I have been part of a Man United team and you do want to go back to our traditions of attacking quick, attacking football with pace, power, personalities out there. And that is what we are doing.

“Obviously we are one or two players down in numbers but it doesnt have to be this window, it might be the summer window. But we are going to strengthen.

“We are going to get starters into this team. We need to.”

It is understood that Ole Gunnar Solskjear has forwarded the lists of players he wants in the January transfer window to the Red Devils Chief Ed Woodward. The names sent to him includes Ealing Braut Haaland of RB Salzburg, Jadon Sancho Borrusia Dortmund, Kalidou Koulibaly of Napoli, Bruno Fernandes of Sporting Lisbon Lotauro Martinez of Inter Milan and Leandro Peredes of Paris Saint Germain.

Out of these aforementioned names only four of the players can be seen as a potential United’s players. The Norwegian hotshot Braut Haaland of RB Salzburg and Jadon Sancho of Dortmund are the two potential deals which United are capable of pulling over the lines in January. It is gathered that several clubs were interested in the young Norwegian striker {Haaland}, but Solskjear has since met with Harland’s representatives over the last couple of days to discuss his move to Old Trafford. Haaland has however decided to play for Solskjear and Manchester United secretly.

On the other hand Jadon Sancho’s situation at Borussia Dortmund has been under the cloud recently, as a result of that he has also made his final decision to leave the Signal Iduna Park in January. United are also waiting to pounce if Borussia Dortmund grant him and his representatives the permission to discuss a potential move with United.

SSC Napoli are not expected to easily part company with their captain Kalidou Koulibaly as soon as possible as they will be looking to close the gap on the Seria A standings and also go far beyond the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions league.

Bruno Fernandes just signed a new long-term contract with Sporting Lisbon he’s not expected to leave the Portuguese league soon enough. Lotauro Martinez partnership with former United Striker Romelu Lukaku has started to yield some result for Inter Milan this season in all competitions, but if a club like Manchester United came calling and also met his contract release clause of £92 million then Inter Milan will have their work cut out to keep hold of their prized asset.

Meanwhile, the Argentine midfielder Leandro Paredes has recently been linked with United. He could join the Red Devils in January transfer window for £120 million double swoop with Lotauro Martinez. Apart from Haaland and Jadon Sancho’s potential January move to United Lotauro Martinez and Peredes of PSG are also the two likeliest players that are ready to move in the January transfer window if their valuations are met by united team’s hierarchy.

Signing of all these a fore mentioned names might also depend on Pogba’s decision in January. But with or without Pogba in United’s team Solskjear has highlighted the needs to recruits new players in the January transfer window and the funds is there for him to utilize if any of these aforementioned players becomes available for the right price.
