Martinez Hoping To Salvage Season In Closing Weeks

Featured Image

Roberto Martinez is hoping to salvage Everton’s horrible season and finish on a high.

Inconsistency has seen Everton grab nine wins from 32 games and sit in the bottom half of the table.

A run to the FA Cup semi-final has offered some respite to Martinez, who has otherwise come under increasing pressure, with Wednesday’s goalless draw at Crystal Palace, in which James McCarthy was sent off, doing little to placate the fans.

But the Spaniard believes the remaining games could yet provide a happy ending to what has been a dull term in the league.

“Every season boils down to these final games and we can have a really strong ending,” he said. “We are right in the middle of the most testing period.

“Five games in two weeks has always been an interesting period. We need to make sure we can display again the good attributes we had against Crystal Palace.

“With one man down it became more than a footballing exercise. It was about the togetherness, the resilience and all the aspects that help you as a team.

“It doesn’t matter what level, everything is about working with a group and winning the next game. It could be promotion, like my time at Swansea, or relegation, like at Wigan.

“It’s the pressure that you put yourself under. It’s always the target to finish higher than last year.”

Everton won the reverse fixture at St Mary’s Stadium 3-0 in August thanks to a Romelu Lukaku double and a late strike from Ross Barkley.

Ranieri Keen On Long-term Leicester Stay

Featured Image

Ranieri has previously stated his desire to retire at Leicester and now he wants a long-term contract.

Ranieri has spurred Leicester to the top of the league and seven points clear, as they aim to win their first EPL.

Leicester have won five in a row heading into Sunday’s visit of West Ham and manager Ranieri’s long-term desire to stay at the club is allied to his short-term goal of securing a guaranteed group-stage berth in the Champions League.

He said: “I’d like to stay [long-term]. If the chairman is happy then I’m happy.

“When you have a very good chairman, sooner or later, you build a good building. Everything starts from the boss.”

Speaking of his objectives for the remainder of the campaign, Ranieri added: “The next target is securing a place in the Champions League group stages, I love the Champions League music.

“We don’t achieve nothing yet. We have to fight to achieve. Football is very strange.”

Pochettino To Leicester: We Are Still Fighting For The EPL

Featured Image

Mauricio Pochettino has warned Leicester City not to rejoice yet, as they look to pip them to the title.

Tottenham kept abreast of Leicester in the league when they dismissed Manchester United 3-0 to stay within seven points of the foxes.

But with just five games remaining the London club, who travel to Stoke City on Monday, can ill-afford to slip up.

“We know we have five games ahead and it is very important we try to win all five games and wait and see if Leicester drop points,” Spurs boss Pochettino said in an interview streamed by the club via Periscope.

“It’s important to keep fighting. We have different objectives. The bigger objective is to win title, but then it is to play in the next Champions League.

“If it’s not possible to win title, it’s important to stay second. We have a big motivation to try to reduce the gap to Leicester and in the same way to keep our position.”

To underline Spurs’ impressive campaign, top scorer Harry Kane received nominations for the PFA’s player and young player of the year awards this week, with Dele Alli also in the running in the latter category.

Pochettino added of the England duo: “It’s fantastic news for the team and for them too. I hope it’s possible in the end they win the trophy. It’s very important for the club and for them to be nominated.”

Tottenham were held by Stoke in their opening home match of the season and suffered a 3-0 loss on their last visit to the Britannia Stadium.

Hiddink Admits Emptiness At Chelsea With No Trophy To Fight For

Featured Image

Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink admits the club feels empty without a trophy to fight for.

An abysmal start to the season see Chelsea playing the final six matches of the season for pride.

But Hiddink has warned his side can ill-afford to take it easy, with Manchester City visiting Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Saturday.

“After the defeats suffered in the FA Cup and Champions League, then there’s a little bit of emptiness,” he told reporters. “You are empty – there is no silverware to go for.

“We knew it would be a difficult season, and we managed to get away from the relegation zone, but at the end you hope to get silverware as the next step.

“You feel, hey, nothing is left at stake. But you have to regather. You have seen a bit of reaction going into injuries, but you can let that happen one or two days then we get you back on the team.

“That’s what is going on now – the team is back, they must show what they are capable of. You can mourn a few days, you can be sad, whatever.

“Now, for the rest of the season it is important to show what they can do – for themselves, as an obligation for the club, and also beneficial for Chelsea.

“And there is a side obligation of playing in the summer at the Euros.”
Hiddink also says he will be happy to advise new coach Antonio Conte should the Italian need it.

“To get the force back in the club is the aim,” he added.

“It’s the end of the season, analysis will be made, and recharge with fresh energy.

“At the end, If I am asked, I am available for this club, no matter who knocks on the door.

“One can make analysis, but It is not for me to do it in front of the press.”

Newcastle Found Guilty Over Jonas Guiterrez Dismissal

An employment tribunal had agreed with Guiterrez that he had been discriminated against because of his cancer diagnosis. The tribunal said that the club prevented him from becoming eligible for a contract extension.

Jonas Guiterrez was a regular for the Magpies before a testicular cancer diagnosis in 2013 relegated him to the sidelines, and is now set to receive 2 million pounds in compensation.

According to Guiterrez, the club viewed him as a liability despite him receiving a clean bill of health, and sued the club for the unfair treatment. He added that the club intentionally didn’t select him games so his contract extension clause would not be applicable.

Meet Megalyn Echikunwoke, The Nigerian Lady Who Allegedly Crashed Chris Rock’s Marriage

Featured Image

Megalyn Echikunwoke is a Nigerian from the south-eastern part of the country though her blood must have been infused with the ‘American’ culture.

The 32 year-old star is an actress and has starred in the hit TV series 4400, CSI and Arrow.

megalyn 4

Though her social media following is minimal at the moment, it’s only a matter of time before she goes viral and ‘global’.

Megalyn who keeps a low profile is also the new girlfriend to Chris Rock – new because they stepped out in public for the first time in September 2015 at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park.

Not so new because well obviously they had to have been dating ‘seriously’ before Rock will even make that kind of commitment to step out with her in public since he filed for divorce from his ex-wife in 2014 and is still embattled in one of the messiest divorce cases in Hollywood.

megalyn 6

Chris left his marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. His ex-wife fired back with a counterclaim, asking that their property and other assets be split down the middle; on and on the battle goes.

Which brings us to the tattletale, Megalyn is the reason Chris Rock left his wife – and two kids – of nineteen years, Malaak Compton Rock.

It’s speculative she had been seeing him for a while, even before he dropped the pen on his divorce papers.

Malaak Compton, Lola, Zara, Chris Rock and Naomi

Chris Rock’s ex-wife is reportedly – and this is from numerous sources – a very bitter woman as she has promised to make Chris’s life miserable for divorcing her…. and she’s being true to her words as she is presently turning him against their two kids Lola and Zara.

Judge Hands Off From Saraki’s CCT Case, ‘Go And Face Your Corruption Trial’

Featured Image

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has again urged the embattled President of the Senate, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki to face his ongoing corruption trial at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT).

READ ALSO: Bukola Saraki Responds To Panama Papers Claims

Mr. Saraki is standing trial for alleged false asset declaration and fraud at the CCT, since September 2015.

The Senate President had approached the court, asking it to nullify his trial at the Tribunal, describing the trial as a breach of his fundamental human rights enshrined in Section 4 of the 1999 constitution and an obstruction to his duties at the National Assembly.

In his ruling today, Justice Abdul Kafarati of the court, however, turned down Saraki’s fundamental rights suit to quash the charges preferred against him by the federal government at the CCT for lacking in merit.

Kafarati said: “It appears to me all that the applicant is trying to do is to stop his criminal trial at CCT. The CCT is a competent court to try the criminal matters.”

“I find that none of the claims fall within chapter four of the constitution”

“This court cannot interfere with the case at the tribunal which has power to try cases.

“It is not appropriate for the applicant to approach this court. This case is hereby dismissed.”

The judge had on March 22, withdrawn from the suit filed by Saraki to quash the charges due to the questions that it triggered on his integrity even as he said his ‘verdict against or for’ Saraki, would be interpreted differently.

“If the court grants the application, there will be conflict with the ruling of the appellate Court

“I do not see the need to go to the merit of the case,” the judge ruled.

Meanwhile, it was gathered that during the resumption of the trial, a member of the Federal House of Representatives from Kwara State, Zakari Mohammed allegedly bribed technicians to tamper with the electricity at the CCT courtroom, triggering a power outage that forced the tribunal into a lengthy adjournment.

The Outlaws Of Islam And The Trouble Makers Of Humanity – Fani-Kayode

Featured Image

“In the name of God the Great we shall kill, slaughter and drain the blood of every single unbeliever, every apostate and every traitor that supports them until we establish our new world Caliphate. We will wash our hands with the blood of the infidels.” – Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and The Levant (ISIL).

The views and opinions expressed here are those of Femi Fani-Kayode and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

These are the words of a monstrous vampire that desires to swim in an ocean of innocent blood. These are the thoughts and satanic vision of the indisputable leader of the dreaded terrorist movement known as Daesh.

These are the aspirations of a man that rejects the version of Islam that we know, that we respect and that the overwhelming majority of Muslims espouse and practice.

This is a man that represents such a graphic and fundamental perversion and corruption of the faith that he claims to represent and that has become such a terror to humanity that he can hardly be described as a human being at all but rather as a barbarous beast that is not worthy of life.

Simply put Mr. Al Baghdadi is beyond the pale: his level of depravity and capacity for evil is simply incomprehensible. There is no word that can adequately describe his brand of depravity and his insidious level of inhumanity.

So seized of the devil is he that even his brothers in terror like the Taliban and Al Qaeda speak of him in hushed tones.

In his famous play titled The Tempest Shakespeare wrote: “hell is empty. All the devils are here”.

The bard was right. All the devils and demons have indeed left hell and they are right here on planet earth.

All across the world they spread their vile message of violence and hate.

They kill Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, moderate Muslims, secularists, atheists, agnostics and all those who do not share their barbaric beliefs and primitive world view.

They take special delight in preying on the weak and the vulnerable, especially the young and the old.

To them the energy and life-force of a pubescent child is like nectar which they take joy in sucking out, absorbing and drinking and sacrificing to their demons.

They unleash bombs, bullets, bloodshed, genocide, mass murder, ethnic cleansing, beheadings, suicide bombers, child soldiers, butchery and carnage everywhere they go and all in the name of their god.

No wonder the Holy Bible says “the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel”.

What can one say about those who slit open the throats of others and drain all their blood, all in the name of their god?

What can one say about those who put their fellow human beings in iron cages and burns them alive all in the name of their god?

What can one say about those that tie up women in the presence of a frenzied crowd and stone them to death all in the name of their god?

What can one say about those that carve out the hearts of their fellow men and eat them raw in front of television cameras all in the name of their god?

What can one say about those that abduct, rape, enslave and murder little girls and justify it all in the name of their god?

These are the people that King Abdullah II of Jordan has rightly described as the “outlaws of Islam”. They are indeed not just the ‘outlaws of Islam’ but also the troublers of humanity.

They are the seeds of the great serpent Lucifer, the Son of the Dawn and the spawn of hell. They are the mortal enemies of all men and women of faith and all believers in the Living God.

They are the adversaries of every true Muslim, every Christian and every Jew on the planet.

Their’s is to spread hate, fear, terror, carnage, bloodshed and sorrow. Their’s is to steal, kill and destroy. Their’s is to do the bidding of Satan and to establish the counsel of the ungodly here on earth.

These jihadists are evil. They are the vermin of the earth.

Like the Jebusites, Midianites, Canaanites and Amalekites of old, they deserve to be wiped out: every single one of them. And it is our collective duty to see to it that this is done.

Ours is to offer praises to the Living God, to pray in His name and to sing with joy and pride as we march forth to meet them in the field of spiritual and physical battle.

Ours is to turn ourselves into the Lord’s tool of judgment and to strike them down wherever they may be.

Ours is to ensure that the forces of light prevail over the forces of darkness by the power of His word. This is our calling and duty and God Himself wills it.

And if they are still in any doubt about where all these is heading to in the Nigerian context, they should consider the following.

On December 30th 1964, Mallam Bala Garba told the West African Pilot newspaper that:

“the conquest to the sea is now in sight. When our god-sent Ahmadu Bello said some years ago that our conquest will reach the sea shores of Nigeria, some idiots in the South were doubting its possibilities. Today have we not reached the sea? Lagos is reached. It remains Port-Harcourt. It must be conquered and taken.”

This is an eloquent expression of radical Islam, with its pervasive use of violence as a tool of conquest and subjugation, in its purest and most obvious form.

Inspired and equipped with this Janjaweed philosophy and ethos, the whole of core Northern Nigeria was conquered by Sheikh Usman Dan Fodio through the use of terror and by the power of the sword in the name of jihad. Millions of innocent non-Muslims were cut to pieces in the process.

Given the activities of Boko Haram and the Fulani herdsmen in our country today, it appears that some in our shores are still interested in implementing that satanic agenda.

They wish to continue where Usman Dan Fodio stopped and they wish to “dip the Koran in the Atlantic ocean”.

Their latest attempt is the introduction and proposal of what is known as the Cattle Grazing Act which will give the Fulani herdsmen the right to claim other peoples’ land all over the country and which will empower them by law to create their own settlements and communities in the territory of others.

Worse still, under that law the government will be compelled to fund those settlements and put all that they need in terms of infrastructure in place for them. That is why our Minister of Agriculture is now talking about importing Brazilian grass for the Fulani herdsmen and their cattle.

This subtle and exceptionally brilliant attempt to infiltrate and conquer by guile and assimilation reminds me of the frightful laws that were put in place in the old wild western prairies of 19th century America.

Those laws gave the white settlers rights over the lands of the indigenous Red Indians and saw the Indians themselves subjected to genocide and ethnic cleansing and herded into barren reservations that were not fit for human habitation.

It was in this way that the “wild west” was conquered and the once proud and noble war-like Indian tribes of the western prairies were subjugated and subdued.

Sadly our legislators in the National Assembly from the South and the Middle Belt simply do not appreciate and cannot comprehend the serious implications of what they are doing by supporting this evil legislation, and neither will the consequences of their naivety and folly be suffered by their constituents until it is far too late.

If that law is ever passed and implemented, two years from that time we will regret it deeply as a nation because it will result in nothing but conflict, chaos and strife between the Fulani herdsmen and settlers on the one hand and the local indigenous population on the other.

The tragedy that unfolded in Jos, Plateau state between the indigenous Christian Beroms and the settler Muslim Fulani for many years is a graphic example of what will be replicated all over the South and the Middle Belt between the Fulani and the various local indigenous populations, if that law is ever passed and implemented.

As a matter of fact, it will be far worse than anything that Jos ever saw. The Cattle Grazing Act will not result in enhancing unity and peace but instead it will result in division, bloodshed, carnage and chaos.

Whatever anyone may feel about this, one thing that I am very clear about is the following: the greatest threat to Muslims is radical Islam and the greatest threat to humanity is radical Islam armed with weapons of mass destruction.

The day that we refuse to acknowledge the dangers posed by this great evil in the name of political correctness or anything else is the day that we will be finished as a people.

The day we start to turn a blind eye to its existence is the day that the countdown to our collective end begins.

The answer is not to ignore it, pamper it, appease it or pretend that it does not exist. The answer is not to refuse to talk about it, refuse to write about it or refuse to publish it.

The answer is to sensitise the people about what is going on, join hands with others in the international community and fight it head on. Together we must crush this barbaric and evil scourge that has plagued and afflicted the entire world.

Permit me to end this contribution with a timely contribution from Mr. Emeka Umeagbalasi and Mrs. Obianuju Joy Igboeli, the Chairman and Secretary of the International Society for Civil Liberties and the Rule of Law respectively. Last week they wrote the following.

“The Fulani Herdsmen and their military wing (Fulani terrorists) in Nigeria, fully backed by the government of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari have become the Sudanese Janjaweed and the Rwandan Banyamulenges, all supported and backed by the governments of the two countries. It is our stern warning that genocide and widespread butcheries are steadily looming in Nigeria and the menace of Nigeria’s newest Janjaweed, condoned and aided by the government of Buhari, has risen to an apogee. The government of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari must disarm and stop aiding and abetting the military wing of the Fulani Herdsmen before it is too late. Citizens traditionally and excusably take up arms or resort to dangerous self-help whenever they see or perceive government to be incapable, unable, and unwilling to protect their security, safety and fundamental liberties from malicious and criminal State and non-State actors”.

A word is enough for the wise.

How We Perfected Rigging Ekiti State Polls In A Hotel- Tope Aluko

Featured Image

Former Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State, Dr. Tope Aluko, has shed light on how the alleged rigging of the state’s June 21, 2014 governorship election was perfected inside a hotel with just a week before the election.

The former secretary brought the revelation to light during a special interview programme on Adaba 88. 9 FM, Akure, on Wednesday evening.

According to him, the hotel used was owned by the Chief of Staff to the current state governor, Ayodele Fayose, Chief Dipo Anisulowo, where sensitive materials like ballot papers and result sheets were delivered to PDP chieftains by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) directly from the Akure Airport.

Aluko also alleged that INEC ballot papers were thumb-printed and result sheets filled by members of the party, which gave the PDP the needed edge long before the electorate went to the polls.

He said that while the rigging was being perfected, detectives of the Department of State Services (DSS) led by a female officer  besieged the hotel upon tip off, and then apprehended all those involved; however, they were released within three hours following the intervention of the then PDP led federal government.

Aluko then disclosed that a lorry conveying part of the electoral materials delivered through the Akure Airport was the one intercepted by soldiers led by the recently retired Brig.-Gen. Aliyu Momoh.

According to him, the materials were later released after the officers received an “order from above.”

The PDP scribe said that the Fayose administration was given the refund of the N5.2 billion spent on the Ado-Ifaki flyover project by the Kayode Fayemi administration following investigation conducted by the DSS, the Police and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Aluko said, “Ask him (Fayose) why did former Commissioner for Works, Kayode Oso run away? Commissioner for Finance Toyin Ojo told his interrogators about the finances of the state including the N5.2bn refunded on the Ado-Ifaki Road project carried out by Fayemi.

“You will recall that Fayose had earlier denied receipt of the N5.2bn refund but the revelation by Ojo while in custody now made him (Fayose) to divert the money for flyover construction because Ojo told them that Oso was in a better position to explain on the refund collected on road.”

When asked whether the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Owoseni Ajayi, was liable for prosecution for his alleged role in an attack on the Ekiti State High Court to prevent the delivery of a ruling on a perjury case involving Fayose.

He said: “I pity Owoseni Ajayi who is saying that I should be prosecuted because he (Owoseni) was the one who placed a call to Fayose to organise the mob to disrupt the delivery of a ruling by Justice Olusegun Ogunyemi.

“Owoseni told Fayose on the telephone that should the judge deliver the ruling on the perjury case, it would go against him (Fayose) and his planned swearing-in would be in jeopardy.”

Aluko also described as ‘erroneous’ media reports that he had reconciled with Governor Fayose.

He said: “It was the governor and former Ekiti Assembly factional Speaker Dele Olugbemi who barged into a meeting I was holding with some PDP leaders.

“Olugbemi and Fayose barged into the meeting venue, Olugbemi is a pathological liar.

Olugbemi had lied against Fayose, he lied against the APC, he lied against the PDP and he is working for the money and appointment he had just received from Fayose.

“I did not create a scene at the venue of the meeting because hefty men had been stationed around and my wife was afraid of what could happen. Fayose held my clothes that I should not talk when I wanted to say something.

“I feared for my wife who later disappeared from the scene and I did not know her whereabouts. They almost attacked me when I went to Channels Television but it was policemen led by the CP that saved me after being held up there for about three hours.

“I played safe because of my wife and to avoid the scenario that played out when I went to Channels Television to grant my first interview.”

Wenger Believes Arsenal Are In Title Race

Featured Image

Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal are still in the title race, despite their poor form.

Arsenal were looking to finish top of the league, but fell by the wayside, crashing out of the UCL and FA.

The Gunners are now 13 points behind league leaders Leicester City, though they have a game in hand over Claudio Ranieri’s men.

Regardless, the French boss has instructed his charges to keep their heads down for the run-in.

“We need a strong run now,” Wenger told the press. “There is pressure, but a lot of pressure on the teams around us.

“It is perceived that the title is over but I don’t think that completely. We have to fight from now until the end of the season.”

Third-placed Arsenal face Crystal Palace on Sunday, with Leicester taking on West Ham and second-placed Tottenham facing Stoke on Monday.

Ambode To Sign MoU To Construct 4th Mainland Bridge In Lagos

Featured Image

The myriad of clamours for creation of a fourth Mainland Bridge in Lagos is getting realistic as the Governor of the state, Akinwunmi Ambode has said that the State Government will formally sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), with investors for the construction of the proposed bridge before the end of May 2016.

The governor gave the assurance while speaking at the First Quarter 2016 Town Hall Meeting, the third in the series, held at the Ikorodu Town Hall, Ikorodu, on Thursday.

Ambode said: “We reaslised that one of the ways to fast-track our economic growth is through collaborations and partnerships.

“As a result, we entered into a partnership with Kebbi State for the establishment of a commodity value chain for the production, processing and distribution of commodities such as rice, wheat, groundnut, onions and beans.

“This activity is majorly in the East Senatorial Zone.

“In the same vein, many investors have shown interest in the actualization of our dream for the fourth mainland bridge which will run from Ajah to Ikorodu to Isawo and berth at Ojodu, Ikeja back to the Ibadan expressway.. By the special grace of God, we will sign the MoU and commence action before May 29.”

Ambode also restated that the objective of his administration is to ensure that no part of the state is left undeveloped, expressing optimism that the Lagos East Senatorial District which used to be the economic hub of the state in the then Western Region will regain its position.

He continued: “Over the years, the economic activities have continually dwindled resulting in urban migration, underdevelopment and unemployment. It is with a view of revitalising the economic activities of this zone that Government has identified the need for urgent intervention.”

“To this end, government will be relocating the Mile 12 Market to Imota. Work on this will commence next week. Our vision is to make the East Senatorial Zone economically viable and liveable.”

Fuel Crises: NLC, TUC Set To Extend Nationwide Strike To 1 Week For Impact

Featured Image

While the government of Nigeria intensifies efforts to impede the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and its ally from embarking on their planned one-day nationwide warning strike, in protest of the hike in electricity tariff and lingering fuel scarcity among others, the Trade Union Congress (TUC) on Wednesday, disclosed that labour might extend the anticipated strike to one week to create meaningful impact.

Speaking exclusively to ThisDay Newspaper, the president of TUC, Bobboi Kaigama, expressed that the plan to embark on the warning strike was on course as consultations are currently in progress.

The planned nationwide industrial action is coming on the heels of the current issues unfolding in the country, as the union aimed at expressing its angst against government poor handling of the economy, electricity tariff hike, fuel scarcity, among others.

Kaigama said: “Of course, the plan to go on strike is still on; the most important thing is consultation. You know, to organise a strike is not a tea party, you have to consult widely before you go on with the plan.”

“At the moment, we are still monitoring the situation; it is also likely that, it (strike) may be extended to one week in order to make an impact.”

When asked if the federal government had reached out to the congress in an attempt to compel the body to shelve its plan, Kaigama said at the last forum in Abuja, such overtures were made, but that TUC was yet to receive an official request to halt its plan.

In a related development, the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) on Wednesday averred that the 21-day ultimatum it gave the federal government stands, notwithstanding on-going talks with the government.

Yes, We Love This Company That Grants Staff A Day Off To Watch #GameOfThrones Premiere

Featured Image

Every Game of Thrones addict is aware that the best time to watch the series is at night. No one shuffling, pacing, talking over the series, or asking annoying questions on what’s happening.

With all this in mind, a British technology firm decides to give their staff a half day off so they can watch the GOT Season 6 premiere.

Company/Office goals.

The company informs its UK staff “they would be able to watch the sixth series of the hit television show, which is due to start on April 24 but will air at 2 AM in the UK”.


The tech firm which has offices in New York, London and Belfast, said the decision was unanimously made by management as a means to create the ‘best working environment’ for its staff.

Founding partner for the firm, Tim Rodgers, said: “We are always trying to look after our guys and make sure we’re giving them the best work environment and social life as well”.

The sixth season of HBO’s hit show premieres next Sunday and airs in the US at 9 p.m., but it doesn’t make it overseas until 2 a.m.

Rodgers says his staff of sixty-eight at the Belfast branch of the company are “massive fans” who are completely “obsessed with the award-winning series, especially because parts of it are filmed in Ireland”.


To show how fun they are, the firm’s London operations director Emma Willis said “The half-day is now included in the company’s official holiday policy in its handbook”, an information which was to its employees on LinkedIn.

Emma writes: “When your company slips you an extra morning off work to recover from a #gameofthrones binge you know you’ve hit the jackpot. Didn’t expect that in the company handbook this morning!”.

Rodgers said: “The announcement has caused some “friendly banter” between the overseas offices and those back in the US, who are planning their own watch parties with their co-workers. We have a great, friendly culture in the office”.


Rodgers also adds that “Big Apple”‘ – that’s NYC – staffers don’t have any surprise yet but his brain is cooking up something for them.

If bosses have any doubts on the benefits of allowing their staff some “play time’, Rodgers says “the policy has been good for business, too, with a 20 percent increase in job applications this week following the news of the “GoT” perk”.

He concludes, “Looking after what you have and bringing great people in is super important to us. We have a work hard, play hard atmosphere”.

Companies can take a note or two.


Personally, I’m tired of the suspense surrounding Jon Snow’s death. Who else can’t wait?

Didier Drogba Lands In N480M Charity Fraud

Featured Image

Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has a charity he names “Luvvies” – though it has come to light that the sports-star may not be as lovely as his charity sounds since he has only spent £14,115 (N3,993,000) on good causes.

Out of the £1.7 million (N480,930,000) royals and stars all across the world donated to his foundation, Drogba spent over thirty times more on lavish fund-raising parties than on the actual charity.

Drogba promised supporters who include David Beckham, Bono, Frank Lampard, Princess Beatrice and Christine Bleakley, “the cash would build a hospital and help educate impoverished children in his West African homeland of Ivory Coast”.


The bulk of the donation – £439,321 – was spent on lavish fundraising which saw guests such as Estelle perform at a fee. A fee which was taken out of the donation contributed to save children.

The rest of the money wasn’t spent on the charity either, it remained in accounts in banks till it was needed for the next “lavish fundraising party”.

The charity’s backers — including Pele, John Terry, Roger Federer, Donna Air and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich all made ‘large personal donations’ to Luvvies. The emerging evidence of Drogba being in charity fraud is horrifyingly shocking to them.

When questioned about his millions of pounds worth of sponsorship from Samsung, Pepsi and Nike, Drogba states the money has gone to charity.

The charity’s UK account doesn’t hold any such sums as suggestions imply the money has been paid into an account in the charity’s name in Ivory Coast.

Spokesman for the charity claims “all of these sponsorship money have been used for charitable activities”. Meanwhile, UK Charity Commission as well as the UK arm of the charity states none of the transactions had gone through them as well as the activities Drogba and his team claim to have achieved haven’t been open for scrutiny.


The built but empty clinic in Ivory Coast

Minister for Civil Society, Rob Wilson, said “the allegations were ‘extremely worrying’ as the documents analysed by Specialist forensic accountants on behalf of the Mail said “it was ‘crystal clear’ that ‘virtually nothing’ raised in the UK by the foundation has been spent on charitable activities”.

The UN will be one of the most embarrassed – among others – by the time this becomes a full-blown case as it praises Drogba’s foundation on the UN website and also made Drogba one of its Goodwill Ambassadors in 2007.

In a series of revelations starting today, the Daily Mail reveals how the charity:

1 – Raised more than £1.7 million in the UK over five years, but spent just 0.8 per cent of this on good causes.

2 – Claimed to be funding the construction of a hospital and up to five other clinics — but has built only one clinic, which has no staff or medical equipment.


3 – Told supporters one fundraising ball in London had raised £300,000 — even though it was so expensive to put on that it lost £71,000.

4 – Until last year, it had an Ivorian FIFA executive, who was later questioned by police on allegations of bribery, as one of its three trustees.

Don’t Bey Greedy! Clothing Line Disses Beyonce For Hugging Photo Credits

Featured Image

Beyonce is all about Ivy Park this year as she’s promoting her sports wear line which is distributed by TopShop.

Well, in her recent interview with Elle Magazine cover, Queen Bey is seen sporting her Ivy Park brand crop tank and leggings.

The leggings is owned by Brass from Bronx-based dance-wear manufacturer ‘KD New York’ and they are ‘extremely pissed’ at Mrs Carter for taking them out of the photo credits while highlighting just Ivy Park.

This act makes it seem like the Beyonce-owned label “Ivy Park” owns their product.


KD New York said they weren’t “credited in Elle’s Beyoncé cover story though the singer wore the company’s leggings in the spread, but the piece online only credits Ivy Park, Beyoncé’s own line with Topshop”.

Owner of KD New York, David Lee, told Page Six: “We were fully credited when the story went up, and then I went back a couple of days later and it was removed. Someone [close to Beyoncé] called and said the credits were going to be removed without any explanation”.


Lee said Elle received over sixty pieces of apparel from their brand.

An Elle rep’s response was: “The format of the story was modified solely to benefit user experience and showcase the content”.

The magazine instructs readers on its site to “pick up the print issue on newsstands ‘for a list of complete fashion credits’ while mentioning, ‘Beyoncé wears Ivy Park’ throughout its online credits”.


Lee reiterated with: “If you look at what’s up online right now, it’s implying that everything there belongs to another company. We’re a dance manufacturer in The Bronx. We’re talking about Beyoncé and Topshop sharing a little bit of credit”.

A KD rep called Beyonce’s photo-credit hugging “complete greed” and “disgraceful” stating that “they could not share even a fashion credit with a “Made in USA’ minority-owned clothing line”.

Why Bey? The least you could do was add them, but then, KD could steal the shine from her clothing.

Regardless, the right thing to do is the right thing to get done.

Share credits appropriately.
