Super Eagles Coach Holds Talks With Chelsea Wonder-Kid Over His International Future...

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has confirmed that he has held talks with Chelsea soccer whiz kid, Ola Aina. The talks aim at convincing the right fullback, who is an ex-England U20 international, to forget about the possibility of playing for the England senior side and pledge his future to the Super Eagles
Rohr told goal.com: “It is normal to have this situation, when we have very good player [like Ola Aina] who can pick two teams. We always leave the door open to young talents.”

Despite been born and raised in England, Aina visited the Super Eagles Crown Plaza Hotel camp in London shortly before the friendly against Senegal on Thursday, alongside his father.

While the Nigerian Federation and Rohr are keen on the ex-England U20 international, the defender has not yet made a decision whether or not he would make a commitment to the Nigerian senior team.

Aina has recorded five first-team appearances for Chelsea this season.

My Husband Threatens My Life With Charms – Woman Tells Court...

A Lagos caterer, Mrs. Nike Adegboyega, has pleaded with an Agege Customary Court, Lagos to dissolve her nine-year-old marriage because her husband, Moshood, was in the habit of threatening her life with charms. According to her, she no longer loves him because she had not enjoyed the marriage for a single day since they got married.
Nike said her husband even stopped providing money for their children’s feeding while spending his money on prostitutes and catfish pepper soup.

Nike said, “After a lot of beating, my husband has now resorted to threatening me with charms. He said he would turn me to a mad woman. He keeps different type of charms in his wardrobe.”

The petitioner, who pleaded with the court to separate them, explained that her husband had turned her to a “useless woman,” his regular way of referring to her.

However, Moshood, a driver, who denied all the allegations, explained that he noticed that when he came home from work recently, his wife had broken into their house (which he had previously locked up) and taken all her belongings.

According to him, Nike’s mother was behind all their problems. He said he had been having problems with the older woman since he got married to his wife in 2009.

However, the President of the court, Mr. Philips Williams, adjourned the case and said decision on the dissolution would be taken in the next sitting. (NAN)

Two trainee doctors have been sacked and face a court probe after posing for this smiling selfie with an amputated foot. One of the interns, named locally as Carolina Dominguez Garcia, 24, posted the photo on Twitter with the message: 'My first leg dad. Sorry if these images upset you.'
Social security chiefs in Monterrey, northern Mexico, reacted by asking them to leave the clinic where they were based and announcing they would lodge a formal complaint with the courts.

Mikel Arriola, Director of the Mexican Social Security Institute, who announced the pair had been dismissed, said: 'Because of two interns who posted an inappropriate photo on social media, we're not going to stop recognising that the 12,000 trainees with the Institute are a great source of pride.'

Local reports said that as well as the amputated foot, Carolina also posted a photo showing her with what appeared to be a piece of someone's stomach.
It was not clear today who the body parts belonged to, and if their families would also be taking legal action of their own.

"I Didn't Have A Girlfriend" -- UNICAL’s Best Graduate Reveals.... Photo

The University of Calabar recently received a heavy backlash after reports emerged that it offered the sum of N10, 000 as prize to its best graduate during its 30th Convocation. In this interview, the valedictorian, Agala Egbe, who graduated with a CGPA of 4.84 from the Department of Medical Laboratory Science, speaks with NAZA OKOLI about the controversial prize as well as his plans for the future.
Did UNICAL actually offer you N10, 000 in recognition of your achievement as the best graduating student? 

Yes. But, I haven’t got the N10, 000 yet. What happened was that for the past couple of years now, N10, 000 has been the amount presented as prize to the best graduating student. Again, the same amount is what is written in the Convocation Brochure. I didn’t wait to collect the money because I had to rush from Calabar back to Abuja where I am currently doing my internship.

When you eventually receive the money, what are you going to do with it?
I am in Abuja at the moment. If I want to go to Calabar to get that N10, 000, it won’t even cover my transportation, by road. I would need up to N35, 000 to do that, to and fro.

Many have condemned the situation in the country today where millions of naira is won on entertainment shows whereas academic feats are rewarded with paltry sums. In your case, do you think that the N10, 000 diminishes the worth of your achievement?
On the whole, I think N10, 000 is not enough encouragement. It is not just discouraging to the person who won it, it also discourages those who are coming behind him, the younger students. I am not saying that the graduate’s effort can be quantified in terms of money, but in Nigeria, money is important; it is a great source of motivation. As for entertainment awards and academic awards, it is not really the schools that should be blamed. Corporate bodies and other agencies are supposed to invest in education. Big companies and organisations that sponsor the entertainment prizes should also make their impact felt in education. It is not something worth hearing about that a federal university is giving N10, 000 to its best graduate.

Medical lab scientists often complain they are not accorded adequate recognition within the broader medical community. Is it truly the case that you, lab scientists, are oppressed by doctors and other medical professionals?
I wouldn’t use the word “oppression”, though I must say it is true to an extent. You know that in the Nigerian system, the medical practice is not standardised. In the medical profession, there are different professionals and different fields. We have the doctors, pharmacists, medical laboratory scientists, nurses, radiographers, physiotherapists, dentists and many others. What is supposed to be the norm is that each profession ought to have its boundaries. But here, there is often encroachment. In Nigeria, medical doctors are believed to be at the apex, at the top of the food chain. Because of that, they tend to encroach into other territories. For example, there is a recent law enacted, only a couple of months ago, which allows medical lab scientists to head the medical lab units in federal hospitals. Before now, those units were headed by doctors. So I think it’s because the boundaries are not well delineated.

How did you make the best result at the University of Calabar? Did you follow any formula or did it just happen?
Well, I wouldn’t say there was any formula I followed; neither would I say it just happened. People ask me every time whether I know the secret of success. But I wouldn’t call it a secret. It is just about reading your books; being studious and, of course, there is the God-factor.

Were you very religious?
(Laughs) Well, I am a Christian. I wouldn’t say I was “very” religious. But I believe in God.

Some say romantic relationships are a major source of distraction. Did you have a girlfriend?
No, I didn’t. However, I wouldn’t say that being in a relationship would affect a student that much. I think it is about how you manage your time. For example, you can create time for extra-curricular activities and your girlfriend could be part of your extra-curricular activities.

Were you always on First Class?
No, it was from Year 2. My GPA in the first year was above 4.0, but it wasn’t up to 4.5.

What job opportunities are there out there for medical lab scientists?
Presently, because of the growing popularity of the course, many people are subscribing for the course, unlike some years ago. Here in Abuja, the federal hospital I work for accepted only about 38 people out of over 300 who applied. That is also similar to the situation in other labs. I think there is a boom in the admission and graduation rates of this programme. So, opportunities out there I would say are not enough to meet the growing number. But medical lab science is not really a government-controlled field. It is a field that allows the professional to be on his or her own. You can set up a lab and practise. Once you graduate, you get a licence and that licence empowers you to start a private lab.

What is the next step for you? Have you been offered automatic employment by your alma mater?
At the convocation, the Vice Chancellor did not say anything about that; I guess there was no time. But during our induction ceremony which happened earlier, the VC was present and he said I would be offered automatic employment. I intend to go to the school after my internship to find out what the case is.

Mum ‘Kicked And Choked Her Daughter For Failing To Recite Bible Verses Correctly. Photos

A mother beat and choked her daughter following a three-day drinking binge because she failed to recite Bible verses properly, according to cops. Rhonda Kemp Shoffner, 41, is accused of waking her daughter, who is aged under 13, up from a nap and ordering her to ring several family members.
She then flew into a rage after nobody answered and ordered the youngster to get on her knees on the bathroom floor, PennLive reported.

The child told cops her mum had been drunk for three days straight and she knew if she had to get on knees it meant she would be beaten.

The girl told her mother: “Please don’t hit me. I don’t want to get on my knees,” the arrest report said.

Shoffner got even angrier and told her daughter to “get on her (expletive) knees, police in Middletown, Pennsylvania, said.

The girl was then asked to recite from the Bible and the mum kicked and punched her whenever she gave a wrong answer.
The mother said she was wrong saying: “God told the man to kill his son” and slammed the girl’s head into the wall at least five times, cops said.

The victim tried to defend herself with her hands and begged her mother to stop.

The girl tried to fight her mother off, who bit the girl in her arm and shoulder, and eventually escaped and ran down the road where she called her dad, who took her to the police station.

Schoffner was arrested and charged with aggravated assault on a child, strangulation and making terroristic threats.

Photos Of Miracle Baby Born With Her Heart Outside Her Chest. (Viewers Discretion)

The parents of a baby girl who was born with her heart beating outside her chest have made a desperate plea for help so she can receive life-saving surgery abroad. Little Laraib Zahid was born naturally in in a government-run hospital in Pakistan’s Multan city earlier this month.
The tiny tot seems otherwise healthy – she breathes normally and is active – but doctors are baffled as to why her heart is not inside her body. Her doctors have reassured her parents that her heart is functioning normally, but she urgently needs an operation to place it inside her body.

Mum, Shaista Zahida, 22, had a complication free birth and no one had predicted baby Laraib would be born with such a rare condition.

Dr Ibrahim Ansari said: “In my long career, I have never seen a newborn with such a rare condition.
“Except the heart being outside her chest, the baby looks normal. She breathes normally and is active. “The baby may survive if paediatric surgeons can operate on her.”

Both Shaista and her husband, Zahid Baloch, 28, a taxi driver, are devastated with their firstborn’s condition and hoping for a miracle that could save her.

Baloch has pleaded for help from the Pakistan government so that his baby can be taken outside the country for a surgery.
