Rakitic Fears Disqualification For Croatia After Fan Trouble

Featured Image

Barcelona midfielder and Croatia international, Ivan Rakitic has admitted he fears they will be disqualified from the Euro 2016 following fan trouble.

Croatia fans threw flares on the pitch in the second half of the match against Czech, forcing Clattenburg to delay the match.

Necid scored a penalty after the restart, denying Croatia a win they needed for qualification.

“We have to see if we will play against Spain, maybe they will send us home after this,” Rakitic told HTV after the final whistle.

“There are a lot more fans that love the national team and they will not be able to see Croatia play.

“It is hard to say, but we feel more comfortable playing away… we were lucky that the match went on, the referee wanted to end it immediately.”

Croatia are top of Group D with four points but a win for Spain against Turkey would see the reigning champions rise into first place.

Conte: Italy Has Proven Critics Wrong

Featured Image

According to Italy manager, Antonio Conte, the Azzurri has proven their doubters wrong by qualifying for the last 16.

Italy came through qualification undefeated. But their lack of notable firepower has caused critics to write them off.

They beat Belgium 2-0 in their first match. And defeated Ibrahimovic’s Sweden 1-0 in their second outing. Enough to qualify for the second stage of the tournament.

And having previously had their prospects called into question, Conte believes Italy have supplied an emphatic response to their critics.

“Above all I think that there should be great satisfaction on the part of everybody because I think there are very few who would have thought of us qualifying for the last 16 after just two games,” he said.

“Many even doubted us going through the group and the fact we’re into the last 16 after just two games is a huge satisfaction.”

Hamsik: I’m Staying At Napoli

Featured Image

Marek Hamsik has responded to his head coach’s comments about leaving Napoli, saying he intends to remain at the club.

The midfielder assisted the first goal and scored the second in Slovakia’s 2-1 win over Russia in the Euros.

His performance prompted his coach, Kozak to urge him to look for a bigger club.

However, the 28-year-old is keen to see through a 10th season at the San Paolo, having helped Napoli back into the Champions League under Maurizio Sarri in 2015-16.

“I still have two years of contract with Napoli and my future is here,” Hamsik told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“There’s the Champions League to play and we want do great things. The club is improving the right way, aims for bigger and bigger goals.

“As you know, it doesn’t depend only on me, anyway I didn’t think to leave. And I guess also the club didn’t think that.”

Hamsik and Slovakia face England in their final group game, knowing victory will secure a place in the last 16.

He continued: “Getting through to the next round is our goal, but the third match against England will be a play-off.

“I am enjoying this moment and the team has made the finals of the European Championship. This is a great achievement.

“We had never won before in a UEFA tournament. This is a special time.”

#PrisonBreak: Robot Escapes Lab In Russia, Dashes Away To Freedom

Featured Image

A robot in Russia made a dash for freedom after escaping a science lab in Russia where it caused a bit of traffic after spending more than half an hour on a busy road.

The Robot made its jail break from Promobot laboratories in Perm where scientists had been teaching the machine to move around on its own, only for it to break free and escape the lab after an engineer forgot to lock a gate.

robot

Reports confirmed the robot made its way to a nearby street after covering a distance of about 50m (164ft), stopping after it’s battery had died out.

A video was posted online by an eyewitness which depicted the machine standing in the middle of the road with a policeman controlling traffic while guarding the humanoid device.

Soon, a human who is assumed to be an engineer from Promobot, the company that developed the machine is seen wheeling the robot off the road.

Russian media have received double impressions regarding the robot’s prison break as citizens aren’t totally convinced the humanoid device accidentally escaped. The developing company is being accused of using the escape theory as a ploy to draw attention to its creation of robots.

robot

Promobot claims its machines can interact with humans, for example by answering questions and giving directions though the name of the company suggests it robots’ primary purpose is to broadcast promotional audio messages via built-in loudspeakers.

Prince William graces gay magazine

Prince William said to Attitude: “No one should be bullied for their sexuality or any other reason and no one should have to put up with the kind of hate that these young people have endured in their lives. The young gay, lesbian and transgender individuals I met through Attitude are truly brave to speak out and to give hope to people who are going through terrible bullying right now. Their sense of strength and optimism should give us all encouragement to stand up to bullying wherever we see it.”

“You should be proud of the person you are and you have nothing to be ashamed of,” the Prince added, while urging any individual who had ever been bullied for their sexuality to reach out and contact a person of trust, either a family member, teacher, an adult, or friend, or they could contact a service Childline or the Diana Award.

The July issue of Ättitude magazine went into print on June 8, and on June 14 (Tuesday), The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were at the U.S embassy to sign a condolence book for the forty-nine victims of the Orlando gay massacre, Reports confirmed.

The magazine said: “Such violence does not exist in a vacuum but snowballs from intolerance and bullying that begins in classrooms, too often comes from politicians or religious leaders and is often not treated with respect by the media.”

Ancelotti: Conte Is A Good Fit For Chelsea

Featured Image

Former Chelsea manager, Carlo Ancelotti has praised incoming Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, saying he is the right man for the job.

The Italian manager was captain of Juventus when Ancelotti took over in 1999, spending two years at the helm.

And now he is a recipient of praise from Ancelotti, who has lauded his leadership skills.

“When I arrived at Juventus as the manager in 1999, Antonio Conte was the captain of the club, an Italy international and a player who had a lot of influence in the dressing room,” he wrote in The Telegraph.

“And when I needed a leader in the team he was the obvious choice.”

While Ancelotti is taking over at Bayern Munich this summer, Conte will begin his role as Chelsea coach fter his time with Italy finishes at Euro 2016.

Ancelotti remembers Conte as a willing learner who he knew would eventually move into coaching.

“All the time he was watching and learning. I knew that he was going to be a coach one day,” he wrote.

As for his management style, Ancelotti discussed the various demands Conte – who led Juve to three consecutive Serie A titles as coach – would make of his squad.

“There are certain things that he will not compromise on, and it will be the same when he comes to Chelsea,” he wrote.

“He wants all his players to follow him, and he wants a good team spirit. He is not afraid to tell the media what he thinks of their opinions either.

“In Conte’s philosophy, you are either with the team or you’re against them. There is no middle ground.”

Fans Mock Kelly Osbourne’s New Head Tattoo In Tribute To Orlando Victims

Featured Image

Kelly Osbourne is being mocked by fans for inking a tattoo on her head, a tribute she made in solidarity for the LGBT community proceeding the Orlando gay shooting which left forty-nine people dead.

“How is getting a tattoo gonna help the situation?”, one fan asked, just as another said, “People always begging for attention instead of the real issue lol @kellyosbourne””.

Kelly shared the image on social media along with the caption:

“Solidarity: “Noun. Unity of feeling of individuals with a common interest or purpose.” Individually, we have rights and unique gifts. Together, we have strength and powerful harmony.

kelly osbourne

I have wanted to get this tattoo for a long time. The tragedy in Orlando devastated me and reminded me that every moment of our lives is precious. Every human is precious. Love hard. Live gracefully, authentically and with conviction, respect, purpose and compassion.

Together we achieve what is impossible to those who stand alone. Those of us who embrace and respect freedom stand together, progress together, celebrate together and grieve together. You are not alone.”

Despite being done with good intentions, Kelly Osbourne has sparked reprisal from her fans as they wonder about the essence of inking her head rather than commit to helping LGBT cause or victims financially.

There are still others who believe Kelly is only latching unto the attention of the gay shooting for her own publicity.

wizard.beats – Attention seekers will seek attention. You people are so fickle. None of you will give a fuck about Orlando in a month.

meryhe – WTF, you better show it with acts than write it in your head.

pretendinggirl – Donate $ or blood. How does this help, except to draw attention to you. I guess your trying to be more than just a famous persons daughter.

Exhibition: Afrobeats By Michael Tubi

Featured Image

This June sees Michael Tubi, popularly known as Michael Tubes, presenting his collection on AfroBeats. Showcasing a full room of African artistry, he is setting a record by being the first exhibitor to do so.

 

Michael’s unique eye for photography goes back to his teenage years when he didn’t even have his own personal camera but enjoyed the story a picture tells, the diversity of the variation in light, and the fun you have with a camera. This prompted him to return to university to study photography. His passion has since seen him taking pictures of prominent people in the society, going on tours with artists to capture the tale of the event and mastering photojournalism.

Afrobeats

Michael Tubi’ love for photography helps him to articulate who he is – “the way photography documents a story is one that cannot be fully expressed in words”.

 

He explores the journey of AfroBeats and how AfroBeats has become a global phenomenon. It’s amazing how the richness of African music has been embraced, nurtured and appreciated by the different races, cultures and societies of the world today. African artists now perform on international stages, collaborate with international stars, aired on international channels and are cheered by all.

 

He has been documenting the scene round AfroBeats for over five years. Last year he showcased “Sounds of Africa”, giving a platform to the richness of contemporary music while bringing a new audience to experience the variety in the culture. He promoted the unique perspective of African music through popular and progressive artists such as Angelique Kidjo, Femi Kuti, Baaba Maal, Hugh Masekela and many more.

 

The event last year saw parents bringing their children to educate them on African music and culture. It was intriguing and satisfying to see how the exhibition made a difference to individuals.

 

This year’s AfroBeats exhibition is a continuation from Sounds of Africa. AfroBeats brings to light the reaction of fans all over the world and the thrill of emotions expressed during an AfroBeats concert. The sensation is one that words cannot explain but can only be documented through the eye of a lens.

 

AfroBeats is no longer just for Africans but now contributes to music and art worldwide. The growth of AfroBeats should not be ignored but applauded and the upcoming exhibition brings to light the success of AfroBeats.

Another Militant Group Emerges In Niger Delta, Threatens To Bomb Utorogu Gas Plant

Featured Image

Regardless of the ceasefire order by the Federal Government of Nigeria to enable a more conducive atmosphere for meaningful dialogue with rampaging Niger Delta militants, another militant group, Utorogu Liberation Movement, on Thursday, announced its birth, threatening to bomb more pipelines in the region.

In a statement issued by the spokesman of the group, Gen. K. Omovudu, the group declared support for the Niger Delta Avengers.

The new militant group said it will blow up oil facilities located along the Oil Mining Lease 34.

They specifically vowed to attack West Africa’s biggest gas plant, Otorogu Gas Plant in Udu and Ughelli South council Areas of Delta State.

The group said: “My good people of Utorogun community, Otu-Jeremi, Otor-Udu, Iwkrekan, Ekakpamre and all oil and pipeline communities within this region, this is the voice of ULM in collaboration with outgas force.

“It is a secessionist move. The awareness of things happening in our environment is a means to outline our course of action. The awareness is an agitation for economic balance. We have a common enemy, the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company, NPDC and ND Western who hate your progress and wish you die in poverty.”

Confirming the report, a military source averred that the Army is not unaware of the group.

#NotSoCool: X Factor Contestant Trashes Show, Calls It ‘Fake’ And ‘Disgusting’

Featured Image

An X Factor contestant, Daisy Gill, has trashed the singing competition calling it ”fake’ and ‘disgusting’ while claiming she was used as an ‘unpaid extra’ after waiting for nine hours to audition.

The 18-year-old from Liverpool, said she was handpicked by researchers to audition for the show’s panel of judges, Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger, a request she politely declined at first but later changed her mind and made it to the venue at Old Trafford, Lancashire Cricket Club, Manchester, for 10am to meet the audition deadline, only for the judges to arrive at 5pm.

x factor

Daisy Gill told press, “We waited in a holding room for hours, patiently waiting to be approached with more information. were getting more anxious but more tired every second. But we were just left there. I just felt bad for the people who weren’t prepared and didn’t bring food as there was no food there to buy – just beverages.”

“We were basically used as unpaid extras for the whole day,” Daisy added, “Getting moved from seat to seat, sitting behind these people getting interviewed to make the place look packed when in reality there was about four contestants in the room and all their families.”

Daisy said while many contestants were waiting, there were just a handful of contestants with their friends and family to support them adding that her anger boiled over when a researcher came out at 9pm, to inform them the judges were through for the day and wouldn’t be seeing anyone else.

After being awake for seventeen hours, she was cranky enough to walk into the audition room to confront the judges.

Daisy Gill said she shouted at them, “This is a disgrace, you people ought to be ashamed. What a waste of my time and money. You people disgust me, you play God with people’s lives and expect people not to react.”

She added, “It’s safe to say these people are scum and will do anything for money and a bit of reality tv. They treat people disgustingly. I can’t stress enough how much disrespect I have for the judges . Simon Cowell has a net worth of about £500 million – so the least he could do is see every single person who walks through that door instead of wasting people’s time, money and energy to make him look good.”

x factor

An X Factor spokesperson said Daisy was never guaranteed an audition and was on the “reserve list”.

“This is something which most TV shows with contestants would do, in case someone drops out or we can see more people than originally planned. Daisy was told that she was a reserve in advance of the day and then also reminded on the day that they would only be seen if there was time.”

“It’s unfortunate that she is upset by not getting to audition but she was clearly told on the day. We do where possible look to reschedule reserve contestants on other days if there is space.”

The spokesperson also clarified on Daisy’s allegations about the show being fake, “We film people registering to audition both during the judges auditions and during our open auditions – these scenes are done on the day and are not faked. This is not accurate. And neither do we con people into being extras. The holding room is made up of contestants waiting to audition, including reserves and their friends and family – everyone is able to bring friends and family.”

US Rescinds Visas Of 3 Nigerian Lawmakers Over Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Featured Image

The three Nigerian lawmakers, who were accused of sexual misconduct, while on a trip to the United State of America, will no longer have access to the North American country henceforth.

READ ALSO: US Ambassador Accuses 3 Nigerian Reps’ Members Of Sexual Misconduct | Lawmakers React

As a result of the ‘severity’ in the accusation levelled against them by the US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr James Entwistle, their visas have now been revoked by the country’s Embassy.

According to the New Telegraph, the three affected lawmakers are; Hon. Mohammed Garba Gololo (APC, Bauchi), Hon. Samuel Ikon (PDP, Akwa Ibom) and Hon. Mark Gbillah (APC, Benue).

They were among 10 lawmakers invited by the US government for the programme held between April 7 and 13, 2016 in Cleveland, Ohio.

The 3 members of the lower chambers were accused of attempted rape and soliciting for sex from prostitutes while on a trip to the United States.

One of the accused lawmakers, Gbillah, confirmed that they had received correspondence from the US Embassy on Wednesday, June 15, 2016 in which it was stated that their US visas had been denied and also requesting that they bring their international passports with current US visas to the Embassy.

Reacting to the development, Gbillah threatened to immediately institute legal actions against the US Government, the Ambassador and the Marriot Hotel Brand, among others for damages.

Gbillah’s letter, which was dated June 16, read, “In your letter, you claimed that I was identified as one of the members of the aforementioned group who asked for the assistance of a hotel parking attendant to solicit for prostitutes at the Residence Inn Downtown Cleveland Ohio.

I am extremely shocked, upset, irked and embarrassed by your letter and want to categorically state that these allegations are completely false, unfounded, malicious and a calculated attempt to malign and cast aspersion on my reputation and character as a Nigerian citizen and honourable member of the House of Representatives and to bring disrepute to the hallowed institution of the National Assembly and the entire nation of Nigeria.”

“I have visited the US and several countries in the world countless times over the last several years and have stayed at countless hotels all over the world and want to dare the US government to find any instance where I have previously solicited for prostitutes from a hotel employee even when I was not a married man. “…I am a member of  two of the rewards programmes of the parent hotel brand of the Residence Inn (Marriott Rewards and Ritz Carlton Rewards) and the record of my previous stays at all the hotel brands can be obtained to ascertain whether or not I have ever solicited for prostitutes from any hotel employee.

“Although it is very easy to obtain the previous travel history and track record of accused members, it is obvious the US State Department and the US Embassy have presumed our guilt without proper investigation because of the disdain and disrespect they have towards the average Nigerian citizen, even when such citizens are members of the Nigerian House of Representatives, a treatment they will never mete out to an ordinary American citizen who is not even a member of the US Congress.

“A member of our group made a formal complaint to the organisers of the programme about his being defrauded to the tune of about $100 at the Renaissance Hotel Dupont Circle Washington DC, but neither the US State Department nor the US Embassy in Nigeria has deemed it fit to take any action or initiate any investigation in this regard.”

“I will institute legal action in Nigeria against the US Embassy in Nigeria requesting for damages, comprehensive investigation of these allegations and a formal globally publicised apology. “I demand that the US Embassy and the US State Department (regardless of your revocation of my US visa) allow me to travel to Cleveland even at my own expense to confront my accuser and confirm my innocence. I otherwise have no desire to travel to a country that appears to pay only lip service to the ideals they claim to uphold.

“Also, I demand for the full video/CCTV footage covering the period of our entire stay at the hotel; this should clearly show the movements and activities of every member of the group throughout the hotel.”

Also, Gololo, who was alleged to have grabbed a housekeeper, in his letter to the ambassador, which was copied to the speaker, warned the US Ambassador of the consequences of his petition.

He said: “There is the example of Mr. Strauss, the former Managing Director of the IMF, who was involved in similar allegations, but the evidence was clearly brought showing what he did in the hotel room. So, I demand video or any similar evidence of my alleged misbehaviour.”

Similarly, Ikon claimed that the allegation levelled against him was not only untrue but also a case of mistaken identity.

He stated, “My attention has been drawn to the publication, alleging an act of impropriety against me by the US Mission in Nigeria.

“I wish to state unequivocally that this is false and definitely not me.

“This, to me, is a case of mistaken identity and I have already instituted measures both legally and diplomatically to clear my name and the institution I represent.

“We do not comment on private diplomatic correspondence. Thank you very much for your inquiry,” the Mission’s Press Attaché, Sean McIntosh, said in an email.”

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara has ordered an immediate investigation into the case.

Management critically appraised the operations of both stations in Benin most especially as it refers to manpower capacity utilization, dedication to duty, productivity level and found some wanting and far below expectation.

Their conduct was found to be inimical to the attainment of the lofty ideals of the organization. Their professionalism and competence was not at par with that of their colleagues and it was adversely affecting the over-all productivity and the expected capacity of both stations.

For the benefit of our various stakeholders, out of a total of 40 operational staff strength, only 13 were laid off. For the sake of our most esteemed Clients, Advertisers and our audiences, both Ray Power 105.5FM and African Independent Television, AIT, Channels 29UHF were never off-air and are still fully operational/on-air.

At no time since the organizational audit process did any of the stations shut down/off-air. In conclusion, we wish to state that the issue of financial obligations to our staff is receiving Management’s utmost as we ensure payment of salaries as funds are generated in spite of inclement economic situation in the country.

We are committed to the welfare of our staff and promise to discharge this responsibility dutifully and diligently.

“Mario Gotze Stories Are Fiction”

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has dismissed claims the club are trying to force out Mario Gotze as “complete fiction” and threatened legal action against anyone making the allegations.

Reports in the German media on Wednesday claimed the 24-year-old Germany international, currently at Euro 2016, would be left out of the club’s Champions League squad if he remained this summer.

Bayern have reacted angrily to those claims, with Rummenigge telling the club’s website: “This is complete fiction.

“It remains the case that we will resolutely defend ourselves against all false or even malicious reporting using all legal means available to us.”

The club issued a statement to back up Rummenigge’s threat.

“It has been reported that FC Bayern has ‘threatened’ Mario Gotze by stating he would not be nominated to play in the Champions League if he remains at the club,” it said.

“FC Bayern Munich has demanded that various media sources cease and desist from reporting false claims.”
