Maidan Unrest Back to Life as Activists Clash With Police on Central Kiev Square

Clashes among activists and police broke out Thursday on central Kiev's Maidan Square, the flashpoint of the country’s pro-EU uprising in November 2013.
Activists were seen throwing stones and sticks at police and firemen in a bid to force them out of the square.
A RIA Novosti correspondent said that tires were set ablaze, with sounds of what appeared to be an explosion heard in downtown Kiev. Thick smoke has blanketed the square, where a protest camp was set up less than a year ago.

Serena Williams returns after a health scare.

Legendary tennis player Serena Williams is back on the court after a health scare. Williams was bundled out of Wimbledon in the third round by Alize Cornet, but it was her astonishing capitulation in the women’s doubles – playing with sister Venus – that caused concern for the world number one’s health. The 17-time major winner declared she had a virus after the match, as she was almost unable to hold a tennis ball and double-faulted an entire service game before retiring. Williams is the star attraction of the WTA Premier event in Stanford, alongside fellow top-10 players Agnieszka Radwanska, Angelique Kerber and Victoria Azarenka. Radwanska, ranked fifth, bowed out in the last 16 at the All England Club, while Kerber – the world number eight – was an SW19 quarter-finalist.

Waziri fires Back At OBJ ... Respect Your Age Or Else I Will Open Up On You

Chief Olusegun Obasanjo recently said Mrs Waziri, the former EFCC boss was a disaster to Nigeria's effort against corruption. He also questioned her qualification and said she was appointed after former Delta State Governor, Jame Ibori recommended her. You all know where Ibori is today, so you should know what i mean, Obasanjo added. Proving his point further, he said; “Go and look at the condition or the qualification; go and look at the type of interaction that anybody holding that job will have with a similar organisation elsewhere; did Waziri have that type. What connection did she have with FBI, what relationship did she have with Metropolitan Police in London. It’s not a picnic,” Obasanjo said.

We are Not Going Back On Same S-èx Marriage..Don't Disturb Us - Mark Speaks

Senate President David Mark has said the decision of the National Assembly to ban same-s-èx marriage in the country was irreversible. Mark, according to a statement, said this at a dinner hosted in his honour by the Nigerian Community in Prague, Czech Republic, yesterday.
The Senate president explained that the bill, which has been approved by both chambers of the National Assembly, would not in any way infringe on the rights of Nigerians. He said: “The law against same-s-èx marriage is an approval of the wishes of the generality of Nigerians who are desirous of living within our cultural bounds. “The law is not designed to infringe on the human rights of Nigerians in any way.
Also, wherever you go in our country today, our people are completely in support of the National Assembly because the practice of same-s-ex, as you all know, is alien to us.”

The stage is set for the monumental battle between the Presidency and the former Chairman of the EFCC, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, we gathered. This is even as Ribadu may have evidences in his disposal with which he could have prosecuted Patience Jonathan as the wife of the then governor of Bayelsa State, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, over alleged money laundering. Jonathan's spokesman, Reuben Abati had described Ribadu as an ingrate and an ethically challenged fellow but Ribadu has fired back, with very strong words.

Healthy nutrients you need to fend off mental and physical stress and get back to a state of bliss.

Donuts, cookies, chips—there’s no denying that certain high-fat and high-sugar foods are the go-to ways to self-medicate when we’re stressed. But the truth is, those same foods can send our feel-good hormones on a roller coaster ride and leave us feeling sluggish, depressed and worse than ever. So rather than reaching for junk food the next time you’re feeling frazzled, do your mind and body a favor by going for complex carbs, healthy fats or lean proteins.

Boko Haram Is Your Baby, Buhari Fires Back At Jonathan

Former Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, slammed President Goodluck Jonathan, describing the virulent sect, Boko Haram, as a creation of the present administration.
President Jonathan, through his Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs, Dr Doyin Okupe had on Tuesday challenged General Buhari to persuade members of the sect to accept dialogue as a means of ending the orgy of violence in the North.
General Buhari, who apparently was angered by the Presidency’s attempt to link him with the sect, asked Jonathan to leave him alone and find ways of resolving the Boko Haram crisis, which he said, was borne out of the failure of his government.

You Saw The Video, Now The Basket Baller Vows to Return After Gruesome Injury

Kevin Ware's leg may be broken but his spirit is intact.

Speaking to the Daily News by phone from a hospital bed in Indianapolis, the Louisville sophomore made it sound like the gruesome leg injury he suffered Sunday was a mere bump on the road.

“This is a minor setback for a major comeback,” he said. “I have to have the right approach to it. They told me things are gonna be good for me. This is not a lifetime injury where I can never play basketball again.”

It certainly didn’t look that way during his team’s Elite 8 game against Duke. Ware went up to block a shot, and came down awkwardly, suffering a compound fracture of his right leg.

“You Are A Failure” – Fasheun Fires Back At Ahmadu Ali For Calling Yoruba Ingrates

Founder of the Oodua People’s Congress, OPC, Dr. Frederick Fasehun, has fired back at a former Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, Alhaji Ahmadu Ali, for describing Yoruba people as ingrates.
The OPC boss , while describing Ali’s comment as a symptom of “verbal diarrhoea,” said it showed that the former Minister of Education, whose mishandling of a students’ crisis led to the death of several youths in 1978, “was as insensitive, reckless and narcissistic as ever.”
Fashenu in a statement on Tuesday, said it was bad for the retired colonel to insult world-class Yoruba dignitaries whose shoe latch he could not untie.
He said, “There are some leaders, who had accidentally found themselves in positions in our national life, but their poor performance made them immaterial that Nigerians would rather prefer to abandon on the rubbish dump of ignominy.
