Real Madrid could sign Eden Hazard's- agent

Eden Hazard's representatives have held 'positive talks' about a potential switch to Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.
Marca claim the Chelsea forward, who has returned to his blistering best at Stamford Bridge this season, is being lined up for a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Hazard could be open to considering a move to Spain after five years at Chelsea


Real president Florentino Perez has already suggested he is willing to splash out on at least one new Galactico purchase for his club this summer and Hazard appears to be top of the list.
In a presidential year at Real, and with the club having gone the best part of two years without making a headline signing, pursuing the Chelsea talisman would be a major statement in the transfer market.
Marca claim Hazard's current Blues salary to be around £8million net per year, putting him on a level with Madrid's top earners, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.
The Spanish paper say Real were interested in Hazard last summer but the player was not willing to contemplate a move.

However, those circumstances appear to have since altered, as Sportsmail reported on Thursday.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte's interest in Colombian forward James Rodriguez, currently on the books at the Bernabeu, could swing Madrid's move for Hazard in the La Liga club's favour.
The Premier League player of the year candidate would still command a substantial transfer fee, however.
He was signed by Chelsea from Lille for £32m in 2012.

The rapper, in an interview with Punch News however denied this claim.
“She didn’t cheat on me. I never caught her cheating and I never suspected her to be cheating on me. I was the one that messed up.
"That is all I can tell you. It is gone now. I don’t intend to say how I messed up. Right now, I am single," he said.

Relationship Problems: Top 5 signs of emotionally-abusive lovers

Sadness
They'll make you feel like you're nothing without them.

When we hear the word abuse in relationships, what comes to mind is physical assault and domestic violence.

It is not hard to understand why this happens – physical abuse is the most visible form and it seems to be all around us, in reality and in the news.
But physical abuse is not the only form of abuse and according to Inemesit Udodiong, it is not even the worst.
You can say, ‘hey, look, I have been abused, I have been violated, I’ve been assaulted.’
But with emotional abuse, your brain is messed up, and half the time you are left wondering  maybe you are even the problem [when in truth, you should never feel that way because you’re the one being abused]”
The y try to isolate you, and mute your high opinion of yourself 
So, what are the signs you’ll see in an emotionally-abusive partner, or one who has such tendencies?

1. They try to isolate you

If, however, that partner freaks out everytime you try to hang out with friends and colleagues, or becomes uncomfortable when you make efforts to stay in close quarters with your family members, then that might be a sign that they will prey on your emotions.
People need other people as support systems, and abusive people know this. So they detach you totally from these people till they are all you have, and that is when the abuse will begin – when you have no one to run to, no option but to stick right there with them.

2. Overly critical

If you are with someone who constantly sees no good in what you do, whom you can’t please or do right by, Inem says that is one of the signs you’ll need in identifying that such person is an emotionally-abusive partner.
“They are constantly criticizing you,” she says. “What that does,” she further says, “is that it messes with your self-esteem and before you know it you are feeling like ‘Ok, maybe there’s something wrong with me’”
He's gone... never coming backWhen they are constantly criticizing you, it could also be a sign of emotional abuse (SexySingleMom)

3. Too domineering and jealous

One other way of recognizing an emotionally-abusive partner is that they are unnecessarily possessive and try to control everything about you.
Being in a relationship should never totally rid you of your freedom, and should not erode all your sense of self.
There is nothing wrong with a little jealousy, and partners cannot be blamed for feeling a little stressed at the prospect of losing their other halves.
But when jealousy is exhibited in the extreme, it could be a form of emotional abuse.

4. Emotionally unstable

When you see someone who has regular violent outbursts and terrible mood swings, that should serve as the warning you need to stay away from them.
Being with someone who goes swiftly from 0-100 will always leave you in a limbo. You do not know what to expect from them. You do not know what will trigger their outbursts and you’ll be left walking on eggshells half of the time.
This is a form of emotional abuse in the sense that you are never sure of what to feel around such person. That, surely, is not how one is supposed to feel around anyone they are in love with.
It is equally emotionally abusive to alway place blame on a partner (Health AS)

5. Always blaming you

Partners who never take responsibility for what they do are in this category too.
By never accepting the blame, they make you feel like they can never do wrong, and with time you start finding a way to blame yourself for every wrong thing that happens even when you are obviously not.

This is what your babe wants you know about sex

 Even the littlest things turn them on...

2.  Women get turned on by simply seeing that they have messages from you. Very simple, isn't it.
3. Saying "I love you" before, during and after sex doesn't count at all. 0 points my brothers. Don't say it.
4. Most of the time when a woman fantasizes, its about you, bruh.
5. women love it when you hug them from behind and whisper in their ears.
6. Women are unimpressed by a man who can't or doesn't take the lead. They find it sexy almost all the time.
7. Oral sex is your get out of jail free card. Buying her shoes might work, too. But oral sex is the greatest. Your girl can't say no to you when you eat her cookie well.
8. Even good girls love hushed dirty talk in public.
9. if she refuses sex with you its either she is having a bad day, blackmailing you to get something or she isn't feeling connected to you.
10. Keep your fingers clean always, man. Women get urinary-tract infections easily.
11. Women love grabbing ass too. Let them.

Fayose: ‘Buhari has lost control of his government,’ Governor says

Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose and President Muhammadu Buhari

Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose says that President Muhammadu Buhari has lost control of his government.

Fayose also said that Nigerians have begun to believe that a cabal has taken over Buhari’s presidency.
The governor made the comments via a statement released by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi.
The statement reads:
“Governance has been reduced to a theatre of the absurd. These appointees of yours are needlessly and embarrassingly flexing muscles and are heating up the polity; they appear to be having fun and regaling themselves at the expense of the nation. The economy has collapsed and the people are suffering. There is hunger and anger never before witnessed in the land.”
“Yet, Presidential appointees are preoccupied with trivialities and inanities. Wearing of uniform has suddenly become a Supreme Court matter. Why a man who will not wear uniform went to take a uniformed job beggars belief. How someone who has so little respect and scanty regard for an organization like the Nigeria Customs Service should be made to head the same organization must baffle right-thinking Nigerians.
“In other societies where people have a sense of decency and decorum, people with such irreconcilable differences would honourably resign their position. And where a government finds itself unable to effectively govern, as we appear to have here on our hands, it behooves the head of that government to do the needful.
“Mr. President, let it not be said that you have lost grip of your government. Nigerians are beginning to believe, as a statement of fact, your wife’s allegation that a cabal has taken over your government. Your defence that your wife belongs to “the other room” now rings hollow in the ears of Nigerians.
“The saying is that he who appoints can also disappoint. Your appointees are your creation and it is an aberration when they become greater and more powerful than you. Mr. President, the tail is wagging the dog right now. You must take effective and firm action to reverse this ugly and unwholesome trend.
“I am also the head of a government and I know how it works. The ‘consortium of presidents’ around you, as Nigerians now derisively refer to those ‘powerful’ and larger-than-life appointees of yours who take delight in riding roughshod over the polity and desecrating the hallowed chambers of justice, must be cut to size.
“If you need help, Nigerians are ready to queue behind you on this issue to put an end to your appointees’ shenanigans. Mr. President, I, Ayo Fayose, volunteer to help you in this regard. As a state governor, I cannot brook a tenth of what you are taking from your appointees. None of my appointees can disrespect and disparage the Ekiti State House of Assembly like your appointees are doing to the National Assembly.
“Did you listen to what a distinguished Senator of the Federal Republic said this week on the floor of the red chamber; that for the 59 days that you were away on medical leave in London, your appointees were gentle and behaved themselves and there were no killings in any part of the country by rampaging herdsmen; but now you are back and the troubles are back with us again? We all prayed for your quick recovery and swift return to office. Must we now regret doing so?”

Boko Haram: Troops destroy IED factory, rescue 4 women, 6 children

Boko Haram's Islamist insurgency has frequently used young women and girls to stage suicide bombings

Troops have destroyed a Boko Haram Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) factory at Gombole village in Konduga Local Government Area of Borno.

A statement issued by the army spokesman, Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman in Abuja, said troops of the 103 Battalion of Operation Lafiya Dole discovered the factory during a clearance operation in the village.
Usman said the troops rescued four women and six children that were held captive by the terrorists, and recovered four suicide vests, four stolen military desert camouflage and three motorcycles from them.
He said the troops neutralised a number of the insurgents during the operation, while others fled.
“Unfortunately, a soldier sustained injury and he was evacuated by the Nigerian Air Force.
The soldier is in stable condition,’’ the army spokesman said.
Troops have been conducting clearance and mop operations in areas the insurgents are suspected to have hidden after they were dislodged from their last stronghold in the Sambisa forest in December.

World Cup Qualifier: Spot on Messi fires Argentina past Chile

Argentina's Lionel Messi celebrates after scoring against Chile during their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier, at the Monumental stadium in Buenos Aires, on March 23, 2017
Lionel Messi scored from the penalty spot as Argentina revived their World Cup qualifying campaign with a battling 1-0 win over rivals Chile on Thursday.
Barcelona star Messi stroked home his penalty on 16 minutes after veteran Chile defender Jose Fuenzalida brought down Angel Di Maria with a clumsy challenge.
The goal settled a tense battle at Buenos Aires' famous Estadio Monumental between the two South American heavyweights.
Argentina lost back-to-back Copa America finals against Chile in 2015 and 2016, losing on penalties on both occasions.
Last year, Messi was distraught after missing his penalty in the shootout at the Copa America Centenario in New York.
But the diminutive maestro made no mistake on Thursday, drilling his spot-kick beyond former Barcelona teammate Claudio Bravo to secure a vital three points for the two-time world champions.
The win leaves Argentina in third place overall in the 10-team qualifying competition with 22 points from 13 games.
The top four finishers qualify automatically for next year's finals in Russia.

International Space Station: Spacewalking French, US astronauts to upgrade orbiting lab

French astronaut Thomas Pesquet displays his juggling and eating skills during a light moment on the International Space Station
A French and an American astronaut are scheduled to float outside the International Space Station Friday for a spacewalk aimed at upgrading the orbiting outpost for the arrival of future space crews.
The spacewalk by France's Thomas Pesquet, 39, and American Shane Kimbrough, 49, will be the latest in a series of outings to install new docking ports for the next generation of commercial spacecraft.
The new crew spaceships, currently under design by SpaceX and Boeing, should begin flying astronauts to the station in the coming years, as early as 2018.
Currently, the only way the world's astronauts can reach orbit is by buying a ride aboard Russia's Soyuz capsules, at $81 million per seat.
The goals for Friday's spacewalk include preparing for the installation of the second of two parking spots for space taxis, known as the International Docking Adapter.
The pair of spacewalkers "will disconnect cables and electrical connections on the pressurized mating adapter (PMA-3) to prepare for its robotic move Thursday, March 30" during another spacewalk, NASA said in a statement.
The mating adapter equipment "will be moved from the port side of the Tranquility module to the space-facing side of the Harmony module."
In its new location, it will become the home for the International Docking Adapter, to be delivered on a future flight of a SpaceX Dragon cargo ship.
Pesquet and Kimbrough also plan to install new computer equipment outside the space station, and will lubricate and inspect the space station's robotic arm, used to grab approaching spacecraft and move items outside the global laboratory.
Other tasks include inspecting a radiator valve suspected of a small ammonia leak and replacing cameras on the Japanese segment of the outpost, the US space agency said.
NASA television coverage of the spacewalk is set to begin at 6:30 am (1030 GMT).
The spacewalk will be Pesquet's second and Kimbrough's fifth.
The next outing on March 30 will include Kimbrough and American astronaut Peggy Whitson, making the eighth such outing of her career.
A third spacewalk on April 6 is to include Pesquet and Whitson, who will surpass the record for spacewalks by any female astronauts.
Later in April, the 57-year-old Whitson will also break the record for most number of days spent in space by an American astronaut.
The current US record of 534 days is held by astronaut Jeff Williams.
Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka holds the record for the most cumulative days ever in space, at 879 days over five career trips.

In Libya: 5 corpses found, hundreds feared dead as migrant boats sink off

Libya says 205 Africans including eight women and a child were rescued off the coast of Tajura, 30 kilometres
Five migrants were found dead in the sea off Libya on Thursday after the boats they were travelling in sank, likely carrying hundreds more to their deaths, an aid organisation said.
Proactiva Open Arms, one of several groups operating in the area, said it was notified that an inflatable boat was sinking and found another going down shortly afterwards.
“We brought on board five corpses recovered from the sea, but no lives. It is a harsh reality check of the suffering here that is invisible in Europe’’, the group wrote on Facebook.
Given the size of the boats, which are often packed with people by smugglers in Libya, there were probably more than 100 people in each, Proactiva spokeswoman Laura Lanuza said.
A spokesperson for Italy’s coast guard, which coordinates and participates in rescues, confirmed the five bodies were on board Proactiva’s ship, the Golfo Azzurro, which he said would remain in the area in case of any emergency calls.
A rising number of migrants are attempting to cross the central Mediterranean this year after a deal between the European Union and Turkey largely shut down a route to Greece.
A total of 559 deaths have been recorded in the Mediterranean so far this year, according to the International Organisation for Migration. About 5,000 were recorded for the whole of 2016.

Pope Francis: Pontiff to offer birthday counsel to troubled EU

Pope Francis has made his concerns over Europe's refugee crisis clear on several occasions
European Union leaders will receive guidance from Pope Francis Friday, on the eve of the troubled bloc's 60th anniversary celebrations in Rome.
On past form, the Argentine pontiff is unlikely to pull his punches in a Friday evening audience with 27 heads of state or government tasked with charting a "common future" for a union soon to lose Britain from its ranks.
Francis has made it clear he believes that the EU's future should include a much greater emphasis on combatting social injustice than there has been in six decades of integration driven primarily by trade liberalisation and monetary union.
Today's Europe needs to adopt "new, more inclusive and equitable economic models, aimed not at serving the few, but at benefiting ordinary people and society as a whole," he said in a speech last year.
Some EU governments and also a significant bloc in the European Parliament agree with him.
But there is no consensus among the 27 member states on this or almost any other issue to do with the bloc's next steps.
The future, too, is clouded by the advances of far-right and populist parties -- a trend the pope has highlighted as a danger on both sides of the Atlantic.
Migrant crisis
"Crises provoke fear, alarm," he said in a January interview, recalling that the "obvious example of European populism" was Germany in 1933, the year Adolf Hitler seized power.
Francis's most senior lieutenant, Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Parolin, said this week that populism was a "sign of a profound malaise felt by many people in Europe".
This, he said, was based on genuine concerns about migration and the economic crisis to which the EU had to respond with concrete action.
Among the questions facing the EU is whether it should adopt a two-speed model, allowing some countries to deepen cooperation and pool sovereignty in various areas faster than others?
Is it time the EU finally realised the ambition of having some kind of military capacity?
Does the euro need to be underpinned by a banking union and greater fiscal harmonisation?
These issues form the backdrop to Saturday's anniversary summit, at which both Poland and Greece have threatened to block the final statement.
However, they are not the most pressing concerns as Francis sees it.
The 80-year-old pontiff reiterated again this week that Europe is currently confronted with its biggest refugee crisis since World War II.
And it seems inevitable that he will remind the leaders of his view that they have a responsibility to address it, with compassion, as he did at the European Parliament in November 2014.
'Dare to change'
"I dream of a Europe where being a migrant is not a crime but a summons to greater commitment on behalf of the dignity of every human being," he told an audience of EU big-wigs, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, last year.
In that speech, delivered as he accepted the EU's Charlemagne Prize for his contribution to European unification, Francis implored today's leaders to learn from the bloc's founding fathers.
In the aftermath of war, they had inspired because they had "dared to change radically the models" that led to conflict.
Officially, the Vatican has always supported the idea of European integration, despite disappointment over repeated failures to enshrine an explicit commitment to Christian values in the bloc's founding treaties.
"The celebrations (this weekend) remind us that it is still possible today to work together because that which unites us is stronger than that which divides us," Parolin said.
"The vision of the founding fathers was rooted in the cultural, religious, judicial, political and human heritage of Europe, built over centuries. That is why Rome was chosen for the signature of the treaties. It is the symbol of this shared heritage in which Christianity was certainly a fundamental component.
"Today we have to rethink the EU along these lines, more a community on a journey than a static, bureaucratic entity."

Unbelievable! Federal Minister Sits On The Floor While Addressing the President of Malawi (Photos)

An overzealous minister has left many people in serious shock after he was caught sitting on the floor while addressing the president.

It seems like the trend of office holders giving exaggerated respect to their Presidents is becoming something fashionable in Africa as a Minister in Malawi was spotted sitting on the floor while addressing President Peter Mutharika of Malawi.



Just yesterday, we reported the news of how President of Zambia, Edgar Chagwa Lungu left many people in serious surprise after his Minister of Livestock and Fisheries, Minister Michael Katambo was pictured kneeling before him after attending Mass at Mary Immaculate in Lusaka on Sunday, March 19,2017.



This time around, President Mutharika of Malawi has left many people wondering when the slavish mentality of politicians who serve their fellow men as gods would stop.


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo to be Crowned by Ooni of Ife...See details below

It has been revealed that the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja ll will honour former President Olusegun Obasanjo with a title.


Due to former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s contributions to the successful celebration of Festac 77 in 1977, the Centre for Black and African Arts and Civilisation has concluded plans to crown him the Ruby King of Festac in May in Abuja.



Dr Anikwe said the former president would be crowned the Ruby King of Festac and the Patron of African Culture by the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja ll.
The Director- General, CBAAC, said on Tuesday in Lagos that it was part of activities to commemorate four decades after the event was hosted by Nigeria.
Chief Olusegun Obasanjo was Nigeria’s military head of state when the country hosted the festival in 1977.

His crowning would form parts of the activities to celebrate Festac 77@40 that would start on April 1.
“Obasanjo appears as the greatest, in terms of the promotion of African culture in the whole of Africa and the black world, by the singular effort he demonstrated by organising and hosting Festac 77.

“There has not been any other event that can be compared with it; so, any form of positive accolade will not be too much for him.




“In a rare understanding of what the event would contribute toward showcasing Black and African cultural heritage then, Obasanjo quickly made wise consultations, recognised the international festival committee and other communities.

“He put square pegs in square holes, made funds available and eventually a festival that could be described as the largest assemblage of Black and African people worldwide was held from Jan.15, 1977 to Feb.12, 1977.

“The event was not only momentarily successful; it could also be described as a watershed in the Pan- Africans’ struggle.

“It is to Obasanjo’s eternal credit that Festac 77 covered the entire gamut of Black and African cultural heritage.’’
Anikwe urged other Africans to emulate Obasanjo by doing things worthy of emulation, celebration, symbolism, recognisable and crowning, to earn the admiration of Africans.



Activities to mark Festac 77@ 40 would hold in over 10 states including the Federal Capital Territory (Abuja) where the Mascot would be unveiled on April 1.
It would also entail different cultural displays that would hold in some states including Katsina, Enugu, Ogun, Kaduna, Akwa- Ibom and some foreign countries.
