Ogbonna header secures West Ham win at Everton

West Ham leapfrogged Everton in the Premier League as Angelo Ogbonna's 74th-minute header was enough to secure a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Goodison Park on Super Sunday. In a game low on quality in the final third, Ogbonna rose to meet Jarrod Bowen's set-piece as Everton suffered their first home defeat of the season after three consecutive victories. Alex Iwobi and Salomon Rondon both missed good chances either side of half-time to put the hosts in front but West Ham recorded successive league wins at Goodison Park for the first time since 1930 on David Moyes' return to his former club. The result moves West Ham up to sixth in the table as Everton slip to seventh and miss out on the chance to move into the top four.

Woman took Uber to her Grandma’s House and Slashed her Throat 22 times

A woman has been arrested after she slit the throats of her grandma and her grandma’s partner. Harlee Swols, 22, left an Uber driver waiting outside her grandmother’s flat in Enfield, Connecticut, while she went inside to stab 72-year-old Maryrose Riach and James Samuel Bell, 63, multiple times. She told police that she’d been invited to the flat by her grandma in order to pick up some belongings. Swols' presence in her grandmother's house was in violation of a protective order following a domestic incident between her and Bell last month. In the attack on Sunday evening, her grandmother suffered 22 "sharp force injuries" while Bell, her grandmother's boyfriend, received 30 stab wounds. Both of them had had their throats cut, according to the pathologist. When police...

Jennifer Aniston defends Cutting Off her Friends who are not Vaccinated

Actress Jennifer Aniston has reacted to the criticism that trailed her disclosure of cutting off her unvaccinated friends. The American actress had said in a recent interview that she suffered an “unfortunate” loss of friends whose views towards the vaccine had been swayed by “fear and propaganda”. In her interview with InStyle, published on Tuesday, Aniston said: "There's still a large group of people who are anti-vaxxers or just don't listen to the facts. It's a real shame. "I've just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or did not disclose [whether or not they had been vaccinated], and it was unfortunate. I feel it's your moral and professional obligation to inform, since we're not all podded up and being tested every single day. "It's tricky because ...

US men’s 4x100m relay Olympic Medal Drought continues

The United States 4x100m relay squad suffered another Olympic disappointment on Thursday, failing to reach the final after finishing sixth in their heat. The US quartet of Trayvon Bromell, Fred Kerley, Ronnie Baker and Cravon Gillespie trailed in sixth in a time of 38.10sec, a performance US sprint great Carl Lewis branded a “total embarrassment.” A shaky baton handover between Kerley and Baker and a poor anchor leg from Gillespie condemned the Americans to elimination. Though the USA has suffered multiple disqualifications over the years, Thursday marked the first time an American 4x100m squad has failed to make the Olympic final from a completed heat. The US, who won the 4×100 gold at the world championships in Doha in 2019, have not taken the Olympic title since 2000...

10-year-old girl who was repeatedly raped by her aunt’s husband for three years has died

A 10-year-old girl in Baringo, Kenya, who was allegedly raped by her aunt's husband for three years, has died. The standard three pupil succumbed to the injuries at Sunrise Children’s home in Kabarnet in Baringo Central. The suspect, Haron Cherono,60, is on the run. "The child was brought to our institution two months ago but little did we know her health was in critical condition,” the home’s manager, Titus Barmasa, said on Friday, July 30. He said the family didn’t provide them with the girl’s medical report, which would have helped them arrange for specialised treatment. Barmasai said at midnight the girl asked for someone to hold her stomach. She also asked to be given water, mangoes and soda before she collapsed and died on June 24. Until her death, the girl had a s...

Sowore’s Treason Trial Starts Afresh As Judge Abandons Case

The trial involving Nigerian activist, Omoyele Sowore, and Olawale Bakare has suffered a setback at the Federal High Court in Abuja. The presiding Judge, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu, has been transferred to Calabar and has informed the Chief Justice, Justice Tsoho, that although she would continue with other cases, she would no longer preside over Sowore’s case. This implies that the case marked, FHC/ABJ/CR/235/19, will have to start afresh for the second time. This is just as two other judges have refused to take up Sowore’s case due to its ‘sensitive nature.’ The Department of State Services had arraigned Sowore and Bakare before Justice Ojukwu for treasonable felony for organising the ‘Revolution Now’ protest on August 5, 2019, which the government saw as an attempt to disrupt...
