ENTERTAINMENT: PHOTONEWS - 42-year-old unemployed man wins Zimbabwe's Mr Ugly pageant


42-year-old unemployed Maison Sere was crowned Zimbabwe's ugliest man at a pageant in Harare today November 21st. Sere, who has several missing teeth and dressed in torn overalls, beat 5 other contestants for the $500 Mr Ugly prize - a large sum in a country facing massive unemployment.




"I want to thank God for winning this title, last time I came fourth. I just want to thank the judges for recognising me as the winner," Sere told journalists during a night of festivities attended by 200 revellers.

Show organiser David Machowa said he created the pageant in 2012 to celebrate "beauty in ugliness". "The show last night was very successful, and I still have plans to host Mr Ugly world," he said.

NEWS: VATICAN SCANDAL - FIVE CHARGED




The Vatican has charged five people, including two journalists and a top priest or monsignor, over the leaking and publication of secret documents.

The documents were cited in two books, by journalists Emiliano Fittipaldi and Gianluigi Nuzzi, alleging misspending and corruption at the Vatican.

The journalists deny claims that they exerted pressure to obtain information.

Two members of a papal commission advising on economic reform, and an assistant, were also charged.

Monsignor Lucio Vallejo Balda, and his colleague on the commission, public relations expert Francesca Chaouqui, were arrested early in November.

The books, "Merchants in the Temple" by Mr Nuzzi and "Avarice" by Mr Fittipaldi, included details of alleged corruption, theft and uncontrolled spending in the Holy See.

In a statement, the Vatican said magistrates "notified the accused and their lawyers of the charges filed... for the unlawful disclosure of information and confidential documents".

Ms Chaouqui was released shortly after her arrest after pledging to co-operate with authorities. Monsignor Balda remains in a Vatican cell.

Both, along with assistant Nicola Maio, are accused of forming "a brotherhood of crime" and stealing documents, the Vatican said.

FOOTBALL: EL CLASSICO - Suarez scores brace as Real Madrid crash


Luis Suarez bagged a double, with Neymar and Andres Iniesta also on target as Luis Enrique's side ran riot at the Bernabeu on Saturday


Barcelona romped to a dominant Clasico triumph on Saturday as two goals from Luis Suarez inspired them to a 4-0 thrashing of Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu. 


Rafael Benitez had vowed to attack the Liga leaders and he named Karim Benzema and James Rodriguez in his starting line-up, but it was Barca who took the lead when Suarez fired beyond Keylor Navas, with the returning Lionel Messi watching from the bench.




Neymar made it 2-0 shortly before the break and a stunning goal from Andres Iniesta put the champions firmly in charge early in the second period before Suarez's delicate finish made it four after Messi - who came on in the 55th minute - had fed Jordi Alba.

Madrid's players never looked comfortable in Benitez's deep-lying set-up and the front three were isolated throughout, though Claudio Bravo denied Cristiano Ronaldo superbly late on.

The result means Barca are now six points clear of Madrid at the top of the table and piles further pressure on Benitez's shoulders ahead of a crucial few weeks before the winter break.


After a slow opening it was Neymar who missed the first good chance, blasting over the bar from the edge of the area after Suarez had teed him up following Alba's cross.

Madrid responded swiftly, Bravo beating away Ronaldo's cross after some fine interplay between the reunited front three of the Portuguese, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema.

But Barca were in front with 11 minutes on the clock. Sergi Roberto burst through the heart of midfield and, as Sergio Ramos pushed up to close him down, he slipped the ball through to Suarez who bent a low shot past Navas and into the bottom corner.

Neymar brought a good save from Navas with a free-kick before Bravo denied James Rodriguez low to his left after Luka Modric set him up 20 yards out, but Barca doubled their advantage just six minutes before the break.

Iniesta was granted far too much time and space in the final third and a delicate chipped pass allowed Neymar to spring the offside trap and squeeze the ball under Navas at the near post.

Barca almost made it three just before half-time, Marcelo recovering superbly to head the ball off the line after Neymar had combined brilliantly with Suarez.






Madrid came flying out of the traps in the second half and Marcelo should have done much better when he fired into the side-netting after running clean through down the left.

Bravo turned a James shot around the post but Madrid were cut apart again on 53 minutes as Barcelona bagged a third. Iniesta, once more given the freedom of the final third, passed in to Neymar and, after the Brazilian back-heeled into his path, fired an unstoppable shot into the top corner.

Benitez threw on Dani Carvajal and Isco and the full-back came close to a goal as he scuffed a shot narrowly wide, before Raphael Varane headed straight at Bravo from close range.

Bale bent a fine pass to Ronaldo on the break but Navas stood up well to deny the Portugal captain's lofted effort, and Barca had a fourth just six minutes later. Alba touched Messi's pass on to Suarez, who clipped a finish beyond Navas and into the far corner without a Madrid defender in sight.

Bravo saved superbly to keep out Ronaldo's header and Madrid's evening went from bad to worse when substitute Isco was sent off for kicking Alba as he ran clear in the closing minutes, allowing Barca to ease to an emphatic victory.

That's a major secret of generating traffic and keeping your blog atop the various search engines especially google.

There are many other sites that offer this service and you can access them through the google search most of which are free. So what are you waiting for? Go create a blog now and post your first content. I strongly recomment BLOGGER which is the present page you are surfing, go to the top right side (in desktop view) of this weblog where you have CREATE BLOG. 



ALREADY A BLOGGER

Are you a blogger already, your focus has to be on consistent and tenacious postings and traffic generation. You can not be a blogger and be without a facebook account and a facebook fan page, a twitter account and several other social sites and applications on phone (whatsapp, BBM, linkedin, Instagram, wechat, etc) which you should be using as your points of posts sharing. In my next post I would be giving you secrets of making use of these social platforms with the dos and don'ts.

FOOTBALL: EPL - Jamie Vardy equals Ruud Van Nistelrooy's Premier League goal record



The Leicester City striker pounced in the dying minutes of the first half against Newcastle United to draw level with the former Manchester United star

Jamie Vardy has equalled Ruud van Nistelrooy's record of scoring a goal in 10 consecutive Premier League games.

The Leicester City striker opened the scoring against Newcastle United at St James' Park, netting his 13th of the season and matching the former Manchester United man in the process.

Vardy reached the record in fine fashion, as he played a stunning one-two before darting inside Chancel Mbemba and finishing.

The goal finally managed to break down Newcastle, after Leicester had enjoyed the best of the opening 45 minutes without finding the net.

Van Nistelrooy has held the record since 2003, while the likes of Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge have managed to score in nine consecutive Premier League

FOOTBALL: EPL UPDATE - HERO TO VILLAIN DEENEY AS UNITED EDGED OUT WATFORD 2-1


The striker scored a late penalty before turning in Bastian Schweinsteiger's injury-time shot as Louis van Gaal's side retuned to the top of the Premier League table


Troy Deeney scored at both ends of the pitch in a frantic finale as Manchester United beat Watford 2-1 to move to the top of the Premier League.

Memphis Depay, who had been left out for the previous two matches, scored with a brilliant volley from Ander Herrera's cross early in the game and it looked like that strike would prove decisive.

David de Gea made an excellent save from Almen Abdi in the second half but United were not to keep a sixth consecutive clean sheet as Deeney scored a late penalty after Marcos Rojo had fouled Odion Ighalo in the box.

United secured a dramatic victory in stoppage time, though, as Deeney scored an own goal as he attempted to keep out Bastian Schweinsteiger's cross-shot.

NEWS: Paris attacks - Brussels, Belgium on highest terror alert




Belgium has raised its terror alert in the Brussels region to the highest level, warning of a "very serious" and "imminent" threat.

The metro will be closed till at least Sunday, and the public has been warned to avoid crowds, including shopping centres and concerts, a statement said.

The warning for the rest of Belgium stays at a lower level - still serious.

Brussels was home to the suspected perpetrators of the Paris terror attacks carried out a week ago.

One of those being sought, Salah Abdeslam, is believed to have gone back to Belgium.


On Friday, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution to "redouble" action against Islamic State following last week's deadly attacks in the French capital in which 130 people died.

The French-drafted document urges UN members to "take all necessary measures" in the fight against IS, which said it carried out the attacks.

NEWS NIGERIA: OHANAEZE GROUP DISOWN BIAFRA AGITATORS NNAMDI KANU AND COHORTS



The Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the on Friday disowned the Director of Radio Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, and his cohorts in their struggle for the state of Biafra.
The Chairman, Forum of State Presidents of Ohanaeze in the seven Igbo –speaking states, in Awka, Dr. Chris Eluomunoh, said no right thinking person would support what he called the madness of the group .

He is quoted as thus:
“You will notice that Ohanaeze has been very silent on the issue of Biafra insurgency, though the youth wing of Ohanaeze has been speaking on it. Ohanaeze, as the Igbo cultural group, cannot support Biafra and we dissociate ourselves from it totally.
“Igbo people have contributed much to the development of Nigeria and we cannot allow some people to jeopardise the lives and efforts of millions of Igbo residing in all parts of Nigeria.
“We believe that anybody who has any issue to settle with the Federal Government should use dialogue and that is why we participated in the last National Conference. No sane Igbo person would want to witness a repeat of the kind of thing that happened during the Civil War.
“(Chief Odumegwu) Ojukwu, who led the Biafra war, returned to Nigeria from exile and contested elections in Nigeria, which showed that he was fully integrated into Nigeria and was a full-fledged Nigerian before he died.”
Eluemunor said that most of the agitation for a Biafran state came mainly from those living abroad.

He called on Pres. Buhari to declare a state of emergency on the infrastructure problem in the South East by rehabilitating the federal roads that have become death traps due to neglect.
He said doing so would help to correct the imbalances and marginalization being suffered by the Igbos.
He said:
“We know the marginalisation was not caused by him, but we plead that he should look into the problems being complained about by the people of South East and South–South. He has won the election and we in Ohanaeze support him and will work with him for the unity of the country.”

FOOTBALL: JUST IN - Fifa requests sanctions for Blatter and Platini





Fifa has concluded its investigation into alleged wrongdoing by president Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini, one of six candidates in line to succeed him, and has requested sanctions against the pair.







The president and vice-president of football's world governing body have both been serving 90-day suspensions after Swiss prosecutors accused Blatter of making a disloyal £1.3 million payment to Platini in 2011.

Last week Fifa rejected an appeal by the pair to have their suspensions overturned and they could now face multi-year bans, though the sanctions have yet to be confirmed.

On Saturday, the world game's governing body published a statement confirming that the final reports on both Blatter and Platini had been submitted.

"The investigatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee has submitted its final reports containing requests for sanctions against Joseph Blatter and Michel Platini to the adjudicatory chamber chaired by Hans-Joachim Eckert," the statement read.

"The final report regarding Joseph S. Blatter was submitted by Robert Torres, the report regarding Michel Platini was submitted by Vanessa Allard. For reasons linked to privacy rights and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty, the chamber will not publish details of the concluded reports and the requested sanctions against the two officials.

"In accordance with the provisions of article 35 paragraph 2 c) of the FIFA Code of Ethics, the chairman of the investigatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee, Dr Cornel Borbely, withdrew from the proceedings against Joseph S. Blatter from the start.

"As the two proceedings are closely related and to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interests, Dr Borbely also withdrew from the proceedings against Michel Platini."
Blatter recently confirmed he will stand down from his current role in February and Platini had hoped to succeed him, but those plans are now in disarray.

NEWS: MALI HOTEL HOSTAGE AND ATTACK - UPDATES AS US SAYS SIEGE IS OVER



MALI OFFICIALS SHOW OFF THE FLAG SUSPECTED TO BE FOR THE JIHADISTS

An attack by suspected Islamist militants who took 170 people hostage at Radisson Blue Hotel in the Malian capital is over, US officials say.

The National Security Council condemned the "heinous attack" in Bamako.

Mali said the gunmen had "no more hostages" and were being chased. More than 20 people died, and a national state of emergency has been declared.

Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and its offshoot al-Murabitoun said they carried out the attack.

Speaking after a crisis cabinet meeting late on Friday, Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita announced the state of emergency from midnight on Friday for 10 days, as well as three days of national mourning.

e said 21 people were killed in the attack, including two gunmen.

Earlier reports said at least 27 people had died. A UN official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said 12 bodies were found in the basement and 15 on the second floor. 

One of the hostages killed was Geoffrey Dieudonne, a member of parliament in Belgium's Wallonia region.

China's state news agency Xinhua says three Chinese nationals are among the dead. The US state department said one US citizen was killed.

UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said three Britons in the hotel were safe.

NEWS: PARIS ATTACKS - UN backs 'all necessary measures' against IS

UN UNITE AGAINST ISIS

The UN Security Council has unanimously adopted a resolution to "redouble" action against Islamic State, following last week's deadly attacks in Paris.

The French-drafted document urges UN members to "take all necessary measures" in the fight against IS.



IS said it carried out the Paris attacks, in which 130 people died.

It also claimed deadly bombings in Lebanon this month, while an IS-linked group said it downed a Russian passenger plane in October.

The UN resolution 2249 also condemns recent attacks in Sousse, Tunisia, and Ankara, Turkey.


The UN Security Council called on member states to "eradicate the safe haven" IS and other militant groups had established over parts of Iraq and Syria.

The document also stresses that nations should "redouble and co-ordinate their efforts to prevent and suppress terrorist attacks".

However, it does not invoke the UN's Chapter VII, which gives specific legal authorisation for the use of force.

France and Russia have argued that military action is already justifiable because of the right of countries to self-defence.

FOOTBALL:RUSSIA 2018 - Oliseh will not qualify Nigeria for 2018 World Cup, says Westerhof

Clemens Westerhoff lead Nigeria to USA 94


The former national team handler is pessimistic about the Super Eagles’ chances of reaching the World Cup with Oliseh in charge

Former Nigeria head coach Clemens Westerhof has cried out that the Super Eagles have a zero chance to qualify for the 2018 World Cup under Sunday Oliseh.

The Super Eagles defeated Swaziland 2-0 on aggregate to reach the qualifiers’ group stages and the Dutch who led Nigeria to the 1994 World Cup feels with Oliseh in charge, a place in Russia 2018 might be a wild goose chase.

“Congratulations, you beat Swaziland 2-0 in the return leg match of the preliminary round of the qualifiers,” Westerhof told CompleteSports.

"But does that really call for celebration? Yes, there are no minnows in football but who are Swaziland to hold the Super Eagles to a goalless draw (in Swaziland).

“The Super Eagles won 2-0 in (Port Harcourt) Nigeria but is it not a game the Super Eagles should be winning 6-0 7-0 under normal circumstances? What type of football do they play in Swaziland?

“Swaziland is not the first match Super Eagles have played under Oliseh. There has not been any difference between their first game under him and the game with Swaziland.

“I’m sorry, with Oliseh, the Super Eagles may not go to the World Cup in Russia,” he concluded.

Westerhof coached Nigeria for five years and won the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations in Tunisia and also led the country to their first Fifa World Cup same year in the United States of America.

FOOTBALL: EL CLASICO - Messi not 100% for Real - Barca fixture says Luis Enrique



The Barcelona boss says a decision will be left as late as possible on whether or not the Argentina star begins the match against Real Madrid

Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique has confirmed Lionel Messi is available for Saturday’s Clasico, but stressed he will not be “100 per cent fit” for the trip to Real Madrid.

Enrique wouldn’t be drawn on whether or not Messi will start the match at the Bernabeu, though, saying he will make a decision on his line-up as close to kick off as possible.

The Argentina international has been missing since the end of September when he injured ligaments in his knee against Las Palmas.

However, he has returned to training this week and could feature in this weekend’s top of La Liga clash.


“There’s still today’s [training] session and things we have to talk about. We know he won’t be 100 per cent, that’s impossible because he’s just coming back form injury, but it is great for us to know that he is recovered.”

Pushed on if Messi would start, Enrique responded: “I don’t have things planned yet. I will speak with Leo today and again tomorrow. An hour before the game, things will be decided.

“I watch all my players training, especially those coming back from injuries. You can see things, but it is the player who can tell you how he is feeling, how confident he is.

“I can tell you Leo is excited about his comeback. The great news is he is fit again.”

Ivan Rakitic is also in contention for the game against Real Madrid despite injuring his calf against BATE Borisov in the Champions League earlier this month.

Initial fears were that the Croatian midfielder would be out for a month, but he has trained this week and Enrique confirmed he is available for selection once again.

“With respect to Leo, he’s back with the squad and the feelings are positive,” the Barca boss told a press conference.

FOOTBALL: Guess who is backing Jose Mourinho from the Chelsea staff - says 'Abramovich knows Mourinho is the right man for Chelsea'



Stamford Bridge's technical director Michael Emenalo says the Russian owner "has the whole picture" of the club's current situation

Chelsea’s technical director Michael Emenalo insists Jose Mourinho has the full backing from Roman Abramovich.

The Premier League champions currently sit 16th in the Premier League having suffered seven defeats in their opening 12 games.

Mourinho has already been given the public support by Chelsea but Emenalo, who is one of Abramovich’s closest allies at Stamford Bridge, insists the Russian billionaire “has the whole picture” of the current situation at the club.

“When it comes to decisions, we feel confident we have an owner who has a very good track record, who is astute at making decisions of this kind at the right time to get us to where we want to be,” Emenalo said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph.

“We have never put ourselves in a position where we second-guess him. Part of the reasons he can make those decisions and be successful is because he has the information that a lot of people don’t.

“He has the whole picture of what is happening at the club, not just from certain individuals but every sector of the club. When he needs to make a decision he can make it.


“Right now, the statement from the owner and from the board comes from a belief that we are in a position to trust a manager who has delivered so much. We are in a position to trust a group of players who have delivered in the last couple of seasons. We are in a position to see that there is light at the end of the tunnel and therein lies our confidence, that we can get out of the situation.”

Emenalo also insists Abramovich “cares deeply” about Chelsea’s current predicament and claims he goes through the same emotions as a supporter.

“He is deeply, deeply passionate about football and about English football and this club,” said Emenalo.

“It means everything to him and that is why he makes the investment and wherever he is, he finds a way to watch matches. He cares deeply, so when things aren’t going well it affects him in the same way it affects a fan.

“Right now what is he thinking? He is feeling like the rest of us who are fans. More so. He is feeling that his precious club that he supports is not doing well.

“I think he goes through the varied emotions of ‘how can I help?’ and ‘what is going wrong?’ He is definitely looking forward to the club getting into a winning groove again. More importantly he wants to make sure that we don’t lose what we have achieved in the last 10 years, which has earned the respect of the football fraternity.”
