Buhari Chairs First Cabinet Meeting Since Return from Medical Leave

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday chaired his first cabinet meeting since returning from sick leave in Britain this month. Buhari returned to Nigeria on Aug. 19 after more than three months in London for treatment for an undisclosed ailment.Last week he cancelled a cabinet meeting, raising concerns that the president, criticized for inertia by his opponents, was returning to his former ways, when he worked from home and missed weekly cabinet meetings.The refusal to disclose details of Buhari’s illness has caused speculation about whether the 74-year-old is well enough to run Africa’s most populous country and biggest economy. After returning form his first stint of medical leave in Britain on March 10, Buhari had reduced his working day to a few hours, diplomats said.

Possible Deadline Day Deals

1. Phillipe Coutinho to Barcelona: This is a saga that has gone on for a while. The Brazilian wants to go but the Reds want at least another season from their talisman. Barca are desperate. This could go either way.2. Gareth Bale to Man United - Reports suggest that Bale is unsettled and that the Welshman would prefer a move back to the league where he made his name. Title contenders United seem interested in the pacy winger.3. Thomas Lemar to Barca/Liverpool - Lemar is one of the few gems remaining from the title winning Monaco team. The Reds and the Catalans seem to have developed a Transfer rivalry. Irrespective of which club the player chooses, he could end up as the alternative for Coutinho either way.4. Sanchez to Man City - Pep dreams of a team of 10 attackers. He has 9. 'Demoralised' Alexis Sanchez is his target. If this one goes through, the fans could turn on Arsene.5. Raheem Sterling to Arsenal - But the Frenchman has an ace up his sleeve. He reportedly wants anothe…

Floyd Mayweather bows out from boxing with a GOLDEN LEGACY, With a technical knockout over Conor

Floyd Mayweather Jr., the face of boxing for more than a decade, punctuated a stellar yet controversial career with a technical knockout over U.F.C. champ and first-time boxer Conor McGregor on Saturday night.In the 10th round of a surprisingly well-matched fight, Mayweather backed McGregor onto the ropes with a series of rights and lefts. McGregor’s face was completely bloodied. He was about to fall through the ropes, and the referee stepped in to stop the fight with 1:55 remaining in the round.Given that U.F.C. fights are much shorter than boxing matches, McGregor’s stamina was in question. And he certainly seemed to tire in the late rounds as Mayweather made easy work of him.“I gave the fans what they wanted to see,” Mayweather said after the fight. “I told them that I owed them for the Pacquiao fight. I must come straight ahead and give them a show.”The victory improved Mayweather’s record to 50-0, and allowed the typically defensive fighter to say farewell in thrilling fashion i…

Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, has commended the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo for his performance as the acting president during his medical leave in the UK.The President made this known while addressing a delegation of APC and PDP leaders who paid him a visit at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Friday. He added that he had asked Professor Osinbajo to come to the UK (prior to his return) to especially thank him for his efforts.“The efforts by the vice president is commendable. He used his intellect to run all over the place. I was seeing him 24 hours on NTA. I congratulate them and I allowed him to come and see me to thank him personally for what he has done.” The President also lauded the leadership style of the governors of the 36 states saying he was pleased with the work they have done so far to improve the welfare of their various states.

Comedy Legend Jerry Lewis is dead

Jerry Lewis, the brash slapstick comic who teamed with Dean Martin in the 1950s and later starred in "The Nutty Professor" and "The Bellboy" before launching the Muscular Dystrophy telethon, has died in Las Vegas. He was 91.Over the past 10 years of his life, the cranky icon's reputation soured as he was forced to apologize for making a gay slur on camera during the 2007 telethon, continued to make racist and misogynistic jokes into his '90s, and didn't hesitate to share his right-wing political views.Held in high regard in France, he received the Legion of Honor award in 1983.“The Nutty Professor” (1963) was his biggest success ever, grossing $19 million. But by then his mugging and exaggerated body gyrations had become out of control, as had the syrupy moments in his films.

'Stronger' Chelsea are still title favourites, claims Mourinho

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has claimed that not only are Chelsea favourites to retain their Premier League title, but that the Blues are even stronger than last season.Antonio Conte has endured a difficult post-season at Stamford Bridge, seeing Nemanja Matic leave for United while his own transfer targets such as Romelu Lukaku have gone elsewhere.A spate of injuries has moreover left Chelsea down to the bare bones, leading Conte himself to admit retaining the league would be a tough ask.Mourinho dismissed suggestions the Blues were weaker, however, and stated they should be the team to beat in 2017-18.“When people say, for example, Chelsea lost an important midfield player, if you lose one but you buy Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater, for example, what’s the problem?" the manager said in Friday's press conference when asked about Chelsea losing Matic.“For me, the favourite is the champion — always. It is for some reason they were the champions," he said.

Tottenham 1 Chelsea 2: Awesome Alonso ensures more Wembley woe for Spurs

Chelsea got their Premier League title defence up and running amid late drama as Marcos Alonso proved to be an unlikely two-goal hero in the 2-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley.Alonso produced the champagne moment in the 24th minute and a remodelled defence, featuring Andreas Christensen on his first Premier League start, repelled waves of Tottenham attacks with increasing ease until a striker undid their good work.Michy Batshuayi scored decisively when Chelsea clinched the title at West Brom in May but the Belgium international headed into his own net in the 82nd minute – three minutes after coming on.It left Alonso to step up thrillingly once more. The wing-back stormed into the Spurs box to catch out Hugo Lloris at the near post two minutes from time, leaving Conte to unfurl trademark touchline delirium.Highlights:

Statue Of 19th Century Slavery Advocate Removed In Maryland

Authorities in Maryland on Friday removed a statue of a 19th century Chief Justice who wrote the pro-slavery Dred Scott decision, in the latest example of action over memorials that have sparked protests across the United States.“While we cannot hide from our history – nor should we – the time has come to make clear the difference between properly acknowledging our past and glorifying the darkest chapters of our history,” Maryland Governor Larry Hogan said in a statement on Wednesday. Chief Justice Roger Taney’s landmark 1857 decision said: “The negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for his benefit.” Legal scholars say it is one of the worst decisions in the Supreme Court’s history.Authorities and protesters have since Saturday (August 12) removed monuments in several U.S. cities to the Civil War Confederacy of states that held slaves, arguing they are inappropriate and offensive.

20 Haircuts Worth Borrowing From the Boys: Brad Pitt, Kit Harington, and More

A haircut can give you a new life—that is the message promised by career-making stylists and also by last night's episode of Game of Thrones, which proves week after week that Jon Snow—who made a more literal resurrection courtesy of his dark ringlets last season—still has the best hair on television. Even if Kit Harington, the actor who plays Snow, has taken issue with the focus on his locks on and off camera, saying, “I like to think of myself as more than a head of hair,” he clearly understands the power of a good cut, keeping his artfully disheveled spirals in working order, whether his travels take him on dragon glass-foraging expeditions or beyond the Wall.Of course, Harington isn’t the first TV heartthrob to inspire hair envy. We’d hedge our bets that a young Emile Hirsch, cruising around Venice in Lords of Dogtown, inspired just as many kids to pick up skateboards as he did women to call their nearest colorist.

Tom Cruise Injured, Broke 2 Bones on ‘Mission: Impossible 6’ Sets!

Tom Cruise has always prided himself on his ability to perform his own stunts in all his movies but perhaps that’s about to change. The 50-year-old actor injured himself when jumping from one London rooftop to another on Aug. 13 while filming Mission: Impossible 6. And, contrary to previous reports, it appears the injury was so serious, production has been shut down and Tom has flown back to the U.S. to recover.The Oscar-nominated thespian broke two bones in his ankle when he slammed into a building and it will take months for him to heal, according to sources with the Daily Mail.Because Tom is the film’s leading man and the entire story revolves around him, there’s little that can be filmed without him present. The delay could mean that Mission: Impossible 6 will be bowing on Christmas 2018 rather than the prior summer.Footage of the accident has been released showing the beloved leading man attempt to make the jump between rooftops, only to tumble into the building’s outer wall, wh…

Jury rules in favor of Taylor Swift in groping case

After nearly four hours of deliberation, a jury ruled in favor of pop star Taylor Swift in her countersuit against former radio host David Mueller for alleged assault and battery.Taylor Swift had accused the DJ of sexual assault for touching her butt when the picture above was taken.
