Sleep Positions: Sweet Dreaming or Total Nightmare?

What sleeping position is best for you?

When you get in bed and cozy into your covers at night, you probably don't put much thought into whether you're on your side, back or stomach. But if you snore like a bear every time your head hits the pillow or you wake up feeling stiff as a board, it might be time to switch things up at bedtime. Here's the scoop on the benefits and drawbacks of the most common sleeping positions.

Side Sleeping
The Good: Side sleeping is by far the most commonly reported sleep position, and for good reason — it can have a whole lot of health benefits. If you snore or have breathing problems, sleeping on your side is the best choice for opening your airways so you can breathe better at night, says sleep specialist W. Christopher Winter, MD, medical director of the Martha Jefferson Hospital Sleep Medicine Center in Charlottesville, Virginia.

In another region in the south of Italy called Molise, new comers including Nigerian migrants will be given €700 to stay in one of its villages for three months, according to The GuardianUK.

El Chapo's Drug Wealth Should Go To Mexico - Mexico President

MEXICO CITY, Sept 5 (Reuters) - Mexico's president on Thursday welcomed a proposal to give the alleged fortune of drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman to the country's indigenous people, and said the wealth of Mexican criminals in the United States should be returned to Mexico.

Jose Luis Gonzalez Meza, a lawyer for Guzman, said this week his client had proposed that billions of dollars in revenue that U.S. authorities had attributed to his business operations should be handed to indigenous communities in Mexico.

Speaking at his regular morning news conference, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who earlier this year announced the creation of a "Robin Hood" institute to return ill-gotten wealth to the Mexican people, gave his approval to the idea.

"I liked the declaration. I don't know if it's true, I can't verify it, but if it's as it came out in the media, that a lawyer says Guzman wants his wealth to be given to Mexico's indigenous communities, I think it's good," he said.

Cobra Effect

Hope you know about a term named Cobra Effect?
If not, it’s time that you learn about it.
The Cobra Effect is a term in economics. It refers to a situation when an attempted solution to a problem makes the problem worse.
This name was coined based on an incident in old colonial India.
By some reasons, there were too many venomous cobra snakes in Delhi. People were dying due to snake-bites and it became scary for almost everyone to step out of their houses.

The government of the day had to get into action to stop this menace and it offered a silver coin for every dead cobra. The results were great, a large number of snakes were killed for the reward.
Eventually, however, it led to some serious unwanted consequences. After a short-term dip in cobra population, it started going up.

South Africa Funeral Firm To Sue Pastor For 'Resurrection Stunt'

A group of funeral directors in South Africa say they will sue a self-styled prophet who claims to have resurrected a dead man.

A viral video of Pastor Alph Lukau shows him shouting "rise up" to a man lying down in a coffin who then jerks upright to cheers from worshippers.

The funeral companies say they were manipulated into being involved.

The spectacle, seen outside Pastor Lukau's church near Johannesburg, has been ridiculed and condemned by many.

"There are no such things as miracles," the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL Rights Commission) told South Africa's national broadcaster.

Stanford University -Judge People Not By Appearance

A lady in a faded grey dress and her husband dressed in a home made suit walked in timidly without an appointment into the Harvard University President's outer office.

The secretary could tell in a moment that such backwoods individuals had no business at Harvard and probably did not even deserve to be in Harvard.

"We want to see the President" the man said softly. "He will be busy all day" the lady secretary snapped. "We will wait" the lady replied.

For hours the secretary ignored them hoping that the couple would finally become discouraged and go away. They did not and the secretary grew frustrated and finally decided to disturb the president.

Europe’s Richest Country Has No Airport Or Trains

Ransacked after two world wars, the tiny nation of Liechtenstein spent much of the first half of the 20th century decidedly strapped for cash. The European country was struggling to get by as a mostly agriculture-based economy, leaving its ruling family forced to sell off its Old Master paintings to the highest bidder.
Now, Liechtenstein, which today (Jan. 23) celebrates the 300th anniversary of the principality’s creation, is thriving. The country is the world’s richest country per capita, driven by a 12.5% corporate tax rate—among the lowest in the continent—and freewheeling incorporation rules resulting in many holding companies establishing offices in the country’s capital, Vaduz.

More than 700 civilians were evacuated from the Dusit D2 complex after a 20-hour siege that echoed a 2013 assault that killed 67 people in Nairobi’s Westgate shopping center in the same neighborhood.

Some people hid under desks as bullets shattered plate-glass doors. Others jumped from windows or ran out under fire.

Canada granted Alqunun asylum after she fled her family out of fear for her life.

"For a single woman or girl to be in a dangerous situation is one too many."
