MOURINHO THE SPECIAL ONE NOT A FAILURE




I am not a fan of Chelsea neither do I really like Mourinho but there is always a point in life when you need to admit the abilities, knowledge or gifts in others. I finally admitted that Mourinho, is not just a coach but a special one that matters when the need arises. He might not be appreciated by many tabloids, paparazzi and fans of other clubs but he is sincerely a man that gives them news to talk about either on the field or in the press conference. He not only makes news that attracts the highest attentions in the soccer world but he concludes it with performance that speaks for his comments.

Take the Championship League Quarter Final with PSG for instance:
He made two substitutes changes and each substitute scored important goals respectively. It takes more than just trial and error to do certain things that could result into expected outcomes like he did last night against the highly rated and star studded PSG.
Jose Mourinho & Zlatan Ibrahimovic 














“They know that we are a team with a special spirit, even if we are not in the maximum of our potential. [Nemanja] Matic and [Mohamed] Salah cannot play in the Champions League and we always have somebody suspended. It was Ramires today, the next one is [Branislav] Ivanovic.

They [our upcoming opponents] know that we are a team with a special spirit, even if we are not in the maximum of our potential.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho

“But, for sure, we are going to enjoy the same way I told the players we had to enjoy this second leg in the quarter-final. We have to enjoy to play against the great opponent waiting for us.”

I Care Full-Time For My Disabled Partner And Need A Break

I am a man in my early 50s. I have been caring full time for my partner who is 10 years younger for many years. She has a rare genetic disability that has got worse over the years and I had to give up work to look after her. As our previous accommodation came with my job, we had to move out and were rehoused by the council into a two-bedroom flat.

I have found that the stress of caring for her constantly, without any breaks, has got harder. It's been years since we've been able to go away, and one day just slips into another. We are both very isolated due to the nature of her disability and neither of us has any family to speak of. We have gradually lost touch with friends and associates.

We did try to get some help from social services but they haven't been much help as we would have to pay for any care or respite and we can't afford it. This is now compounded by the recent benefit changes and having to pay the "bedroom tax" for our so-called spare bedroom – my partner sleeps in there. I am still quite a few years off retirement and don't know if I can hang on that long the way things are going.

I am aware of a local carer's group but it's difficult being a man, and it's difficult for me to leave my partner.

The only other way I have found of making contact with others in similar situations is through social media and chat rooms for carers and I am a private person. Really, it would be so nice to escape all this occasionally and do something to take my mind off it all.

I'm sorry if this sounds self-pitying, I try not to be, but we all need things in life to look forward to. This isn't a life for either of us really, and I don't know when it will all end. I still love my partner a lot and want her in my life, but not like this.

Does Apple plan to launch a diamond-encrusted iWatch to compliment its gold iPhone 5s?

The first will be a smaller model with a 1.3-inch display for users with smaller wrists, and a second larger version will include a 1.5-inch screen. Both models will reportedly feature flexible AMOLED display panels and sapphire crystal display covers.

Alh. Nurudeen Lemu Accolade Receiving Speech At National Conference

Since the commencement of debate on the president’s speech at the national conference, the chairman placed embargo on clapping.
However, that embargo was overturned by delegates after a rousing and electrifying speech by a delegate representing the Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, Alhaji Nurudeen Lemu from Niger State.
His speech got a standing ovation and thunderous round of applause. The transcript of his speech that Set Delegates on fire

Alh. Nurudeen Lemu, a delegate from the Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs

As a delegate, and as a people representing people of faith in God from the Islamic perspective, one thing we believe is that God will protect the community that stands for justice even if they are not Muslims and God will not protect the community that goes contrary to justice even if they call themselves Muslims. 
God is not a religious bigot. He is not a male chauvinist. He is not an ethnocentric tribalist. God is not the oppressor of anyone. God is with those who care; those who want for others those things they want for themselves.
One tendency for people who claim to follow a religion is to slide into the position of believing that we are better than the others. We overestimate our virtues and underestimate the goodness in others. The tendency is for us to become spiritually arrogant; to forget that others are people like us.

There is always a tension between representing our religious communities or our ethnic communities and our loyalty to the virtues and values and teachings of our religion even those lofty ideals of our ethnic groups.

THE GREATEST BATTLE IS NOT PHYSICAL





The greatest battle is not physical
but psychological. The demons
telling us to give up when we push
ourselves to the limit can never be
silence for good. They must always
be answered by the quiet the steady
dignity that simply refuses to give in.
Courage. We all suffer. Keep going

CAUGHT SMUGGLING COCAINE THROUGH VAGINA AT MMIA




A 36 year old woman named Chinelo Okorom Lynette was caught by NDLEA officials at Murtala Muhamad Airport as she tried to smuggle 685 grammes of cocaine which she hid inside her vagina. She was discovered during the inward screening of passengers that arrived to Nigeria on an Ethiopian flight from Addis Abba; You can read her statement below… 


”I am a food vendor at Ajangbadi, Lagos and have never been involved in crime. I am a victim of man’s cruelty to man. My husband abandoned me with four children two years ago. I work hard to pay their fees and ensure their proper upkeep. The last straw that devastated me was when the landlord forcefully ejected me. I had nowhere to turn to for solace. I was crying like a baby when a man came to console me. I have never met him in my life. He asked me to wipe my tears and promised to introduce me to importation business. I felt he was God sent until he sponsored my trip to Addis Ababa. When I got to Ethiopia, he told me to take cocaine to Nigeria. Initially I disagreed but he threatened to recover his investment at all cost,” She was quoted as saying.

THAI POLICE NABS NIGERIAN, BRITON FOR SELLING COCAINE



Police in Phuket, Thailand have arrested a Nigerian seller of crack, after a sting operation. The operation involved a series of small drug busts that concluded with the arrest of the Nigerian, identified as Ibenuba Henry Onyinyechukwu.
“Last night, we were informed that Somkid ‘Waew’ Kwanngern, 30, was in possession of cocaine so we went to her apartment behind Patong Municipality Fire Department,” said Lt Col Sutthichai Thianpho of the Patong Police.
“She arrived at the apartment at about 7pm. We asked to search her and found 1.2 grams of cocaine,” said Col Suttichai.
Ms Waew told police that she had bought the cocaine from a foreign male through one of her friends and led the police to her friend, named in the arrest report as British national Curtis Martin Taylor, 32, at his apartment on 50 Pi Road.
“We searched him and found one gram of marijuana in his pocket,” said Col Sutthichai.
Police questioned Mr Martin, who told them about the Nigerian. Officers then set up a sting operation involving Ms Somkid to arrest Mr Onyinyechukwu.
“The two exchanged the drugs and the money, which were fake banknotes provided by police. Ms Somkid signalled the hidden officers after the money was handed over,” explained Col Sutthichai.
Police apprehended Mr Onyinyechukwu and charged him with possession of a Category 2 drug with intent to sell, said Col Sutthichai.

Ms Somkid was also charged with possession of a Category 2 drug and Mr Martin was charged with possession of a Category 5 drug.

Bayern Munich vs Manchester United: 7 Interesting Things You Need To Know




Tonight's Champions League quarter-final sees the return leg of the German Champions and the fallen English Champions, two teams with contrasting fortunes in their respective domestic leagues. Guardiola's Bayern have recently been successful in the defence of their league title (even winning it in record time), while Moyes' United are in danger of being the worst defending champions in Premier League history.

The result from the first leg (1-1) was truthfully a more than impressive show from a Manchester United, who many had expected to be thrashed by a rampant Bayern, leading to the now highly anticipated second-leg in Munich. Here are seven interesting statistical facts from the two sides ahead of their showdown at the Allianz Arena.
1. Just One Win in Six Away CL Games for United
Manchester United have just one win in their last six away games in the Champions League, drawing three and losing two. Not the best of away records to bring to a daunting trip to Germany's powerhouse, but United can take faith in the fact that their sole away win had come in a 5-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen in Germany.

2. No Side Has Won More Penalties Than Bayern
Bayern Munich have won the most penalties so far in this season's Champions League competition. All four of the penalties were won by Arjen Robben (no other player has won more than two so far), but the German side have only been able to convert two out of the four spot-kicks.

3. Bayern Have Won 14 of Their Last 18 CL Home Games
While Manchester United's home form has been questionable at best this season, their German opponents have a solid home record to back them up. In their previous 18 Champions League games, the German side have managed a total of 14 wins, and just two defeats. The surprising fact is that all four of the home games that Bayern hadn't managed to win were against English sides
