Tuchel Worries Over Chelsea Players going for International duties

  Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has expressed his concerns over players leaving on international duties in March.

Coronavirus: Northern Nigeria At High Risk — Gates Foundation

Fearful Of Coronavirus Return, Beijing Turns Into Virtual Fortress

Beijing has virtually walled itself off to outsiders with drastic measures to protect China’s seat of power against the threat of a second wave of coronavirus infections from other regions. After largely getting the outbreak under control, China has banned foreigners from entering the country as authorities fret over an increase in cases imported from abroad — though most have been Chinese citizens. But Beijing has gone a step further, imposing a strict 14-day quarantine on people arriving from other parts of China, regardless of whether they test negative for COVID-19 — a measure not required in other cities. Beijing, of course, is not like any other Chinese city. The ruling Communist Party postponed its once-a-year congress, known as the “two sessions”, in March and experts s...

FDA OKs drug for post-partum depression.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Tuesday approved the first medication designed specifically to treat post-partum depression, an illness that affects about one in nine new American mothers.

CNN’s Nima Elbagir Goes Undercover To Unravel How Migrants Who Risk Their Lives To Europe Through The Desert In Edo State, Nigeria

CNN has published a report of how Nima Elbagir, one of its senior international correspondents, went undercover in order to have a first-hand experience of how migrants risk their lives to get to Europe through the desert.

Nima started the journey from Edo to Kano but pulled out before getting to the destination.

This Is What Will Happen To Your Vagina If You Don’t Have Enough Sex!!!

Just when you thought you had enough to worry about after realising having a “depressed” vagina is a thing; women are also at risk of vaginal atrophy. It is a common but treatable condition that many women experience at some point in their lives. And while it can be a problem for women of any age, it is more likely to effect women who are going through, or have been through, the menopause. It is caused by the thinning and drying of the vaginal walls due to the body having less oestrogen than normal. It can also occur in women who have had treatment for cancer or hormone treatment for breast cancer, according to the Mayo Clinic. Common side effects include discharge, burning, itching, difficulty peeing and pain during sex. Now, this might seem like enough to put you off ha...

Some Abducted Chibok Girls Refused To Come Home

ABUJA (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Some of the Chibok schoolgirls abducted three years ago by Islamist Boko Haram militants refused to be part of a group of 82 girls freed at the weekend, a mediator involved in the release said on Monday. The militants on Saturday released 82 schoolgirls out of the more than 200 they kidnapped in April 2014 from northeast Nigeria in exchange for prisoners. Yet mediator and lawyer Zannah Mustapha said some of the abducted girls had refused to go home, fuelling fears that they have been radicalized by the jihadists, and may feel afraid, ashamed or even too powerful to return to their old lives. "Some girls refused to return ... I have never talked to one of the girls about their reasons," said 57-year-old Mustapha, who acted as an intermediary in ...

Bureaux De Change At Risk As Naira Gains More Muscle

Business seems bad for Bureaux De Change (BDCs) — no thanks to the naira’s new strength that has hit them with heavy losses. The naira has strengthened below N381 to the dollar, the rate at which BDCs buy International Money Transfer Operators (IMTOS) cash from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). The naira exchanged at N375 to the dollar in the parallel market at the weekend. It is tipped to gain more within the week as the CBN sustains dollar interventions in the interbank market. About $1.5 billion has been injected into the interbank market since February when the interventions started. Association of Bureaux De Change Operators of Nigeria (ABCON) President Aminu Gwadabe, who hinted of some BDCs likely closure after losing N130 million within the week, said the losses came...
