Iran Opposes Strike On Syria

Copyright 2013, The Associated Press

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said his country will press forward with efforts to ward off military action by the U.S. and its allies against the Tehran-backed regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, Iranian state TV reported on Thursday.
The report said the remarks came late Wednesday during a phone conversation between Rouhani and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

Rouhani was quoted as saying “military action will bring great costs for the region” and “it is necessary to apply all efforts to prevent it.”
Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari, chief of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guards, used stronger rhetoric while talking to the Tasnim news website, saying an attack
on Syria would draw in Israel.
“The Zionists should know that a U.S. military attack on Syria will not save the fake regime from the resistance but it means the immediate destruction of Israel,” Jafari was quoted as saying.
According to the state TV report, President Rouhani said both Iran and Russia would work in “extensive cooperation” to prevent any military action against Syria. Rouhani also called such military action an “open violation” of international laws.
While condemning chemical weapons, Rouhani was quoted as saying, “Early judgment can be dangerous, before clarification” can be made of allegations that Syria used the weapons.
“Western countries have found some excuse to prepare the ground to weaken the stance of Syria in further talks” after the Syrian government has won the upper hand in confronting rebels, Rouhani said.

The Italian giants travel to the Spanish capital while Lionel Messi and Co meet familiar opponents after being paired with the Rossoneri for the third year in a row


Nine-time European champions Real Madrid have been paired with Juventus in the pick of Thursday afternoon's Champions League draw in Monaco. 

Carlo Ancelotti's men and the current Serie A champions, who met in the final in 1998, have been joined by Galatasaray and Copenhagen in Group B.

Barcelona and AC Milan will resume rivalries again after meeting four times in the last three seasons, with Lionel Messi inspiring the Blaugrana to a memorable comeback at the last 16 stage last time round. Joining them in an intriguing Group H is Ajax and Celtic.

Arsenal face a difficult task in maintaining their record of consistently reaching the knockout stages after being joined in Group F by Marseille, Napoli, and last season's beaten finalists, Borussia Dortmund. 

Elsewhere, holders Bayern Munich will take on Manuel Pellegrini's Manchester City for the second time in three years, and Real Sociedad are rewarded for their play-off victory over Lyon with a trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United.

The 2013-14 final will be held in the Estadio da Luz in Lisbon. 

Samuel Eto'o completed his transfer to Chelsea on Thursday afternoon, and quickly sat down with the official club website to discuss the move.


The three-time Champions League winner and four-time African Player of the Year is looking forward to getting started in west London…
Welcome to Chelsea, what are your first impressions of being here?
I am very happy to be here but also anxious because I want to get playing as soon as possible.
It wasn't a hard decision. I saw the qualities Chelsea have, and I was very happy with Jose Mourinho before, so when the opportunity came, I was very happy to take it.
Have you spoken to the manager, and what did he say to you?
I've spoken to him quite a few times, but what was said is confidential!
Have you always been keen on a move to England, after playing in other top leagues?
I've had a couple of opportunities to come to England before, including the first time Jose was here, but it didn't work out for one reason or another. Since that time, I have had a career where I have been lucky enough to win a lot of trophies in different countries, but one of my last dreams as a professional is to come and play in England and see if I can have the same success as in my previous clubs. I don't see it as a final challenge, but to have a good time, enjoy my football, and have success with this team.
Can you see it lasting beyond one year if both sides are happy?
This is the thing that least preoccupies me. It's something to talk about later, both sides need to be happy but importantly the club needs to be happy with me before they even ask my opinion on that.
You have a fantastic goalscoring record. What can fans expect from seeing you at Stamford Bridge?
The first thing I need to do is adapt myself as quickly as possible to the team. I want to try and enjoy the football as much as possible and I feel if I am doing that, everybody watching will enjoy watching me.

Graphic photos: 1,300 Syrians gassed in their beds inside Damascus suburb


Shocking photos have been released showing the aftermath of the deadly chemical weapons unleashed on Damascus suburb, Ain Tarma, where 1,300 innocent Syrians were gassed in their beds

The attack yesterday have left the streets deserted and makeshift morgues piled high with bodies of innocent women, men and children while those who survived the attack are fighting for their lives in makeshift hospitals. The attackers used rockets to release fatal fumes over the suburb in the early hours of yesterday morning as people slept in their homes.

The Syrian president has denied being behind the attack as protests against it erupted in other parts of the world. What I don't understand is why the rest of the world is folding its hands while thousands of innocent people are being slaughtered in Syria. See more photos after the cut...

$2million raised by Spark Internet Group



Jason Njoku, Bastian Gotter and Mary Remmy-Njoku launched Spark, the Lagos-based Internet Group that invests in Nigerian start-ups, a few months back. (If you missed it, read it HERE). They launched with a $1m investment fund and have just announced that due to huge interest in their company, they have secured another $2million from a pool of 17 international high net individual investors, based on a $10m valuation for the three month old company. It seems that the world now firmly has its eyes on Nigeria for exciting Internet companies to invest in!

Spark companies employ 130 people across the nine launched companies in Lagos, three of which have already secured second-round seed investments totaling an additional $700k from Njoku and Gotter. Continue...


Spark’s goal is to revolutionize Nigeria’s angel investment eco-system, focusing on the country’s Internet startup scene.  
In an official press release, Jason Njoku of iROKOtv fame says: “Every Spark company we have invested in already generates revenue which we feel is essential to the survival of any Internet start-up in Nigeria. Bastian and I were impressed with their output, as were our investors, hence we have been able to raise the sum of $2m in nine days. We expect to raise more money in the coming months to cement Spark as one of the preeminent Internet groups in Nigeria and Africa.” 

Njoku and Gotter will use the $2m to expand the company’s offices, initially in Lagos, before opening Spark hubs across Nigeria. The investment will also provide further follow-on rounds of seed-investments for Spark companies.

To-date, Spark has invested in some of Nigeria’s most exciting Internet startups including hotel room booking site, hotels.ng the undisputed leader in hotel room booking service in Nigeria; bus.com.ng; Nigeria's number one bus ticketing website and ToLet.com.ng, who are revolutionising the customer facing lettings space in Nigeria. 

Bastian Gotter, Spark Managing partner adds: “Spark companies now have the capital behind them to invest in technology, good staff, building out their inventory – whatever is required to make them into a stronger long-term business. Jason and I have previously been vocal on the shortcomings of Nigeria’s business eco-system and how investment does not reach the right people. With this additional investment of $2Mn, we are now able to channel even more funds to the companies who will one day lead the continent’s Internet space.”   

Congratulations to these guys making big moves in the Internet world and attracting international investment - we hope their companies go on to make Nigeria proud and put us on the map for new, cool internet companies. 
Check out the businesses they have invested in so far: Hotels.ng, Christians.com.ng, Bus.ng, Giddimint.com.ng, Borro.com.ng, Insured.ng,  ToLet.com.ng, Foto.com.ng,  and Drinks.ng

Bad Start: Arsenal’s Oxlade-Chamberlain Injured, Out For 3 Months


220px-Oxlade-Chamberlain
 Talented winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain picked up a nasty injury as Arsenal lost 3-1 to Aston Villa at the Emirates yesterday in the opening match of the Premier League season, reports the Daily Mirror.
The Gunners suffered a shock 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa, with a Christian Benteke brace and a late goal from Antonia Luna securing the points for the visitors after Olivier Giroud had given Arsenal an early lead.
To make matters worse, Oxlade-Chamberlain has suffered what’s feared to be a nasty knee injury, that will sideline the player for three months. Gunners fans will be even more frustrated at the news after failing to secure any big transfer targets all summer long. They have only signed Yaya Sanogo on a free, and look set to miss out on Luis Suarez and Wayne Rooney, with Gonzalo Higuain having already joined Napoli.
Oxlade-Chamberlain left the field at halftime, appearing to be in considerable pain.
The news will also upset England fans, as the national side have two crucial World Cup qualifiers coming up in September against Moldova and Ukraine.
The 20-year-old winger has already won 13 England caps, and made 25 Premier league appearances last term. The Gunners picked up the wonderkid from Southampton back in 2011, in a fee that could rise to £15m.

A message to all single ladies - from Charly Boy


If you're a single lady...this message is for you from Mr Charles Oputa
All the single ladies reading this, chin-up and give your good self a thumb up. Nothing doest thou. Last week I had a father/daughter discussion with my Princess. I could feel the frustration in her tone as we spoke about different issues. When I asked about her boyfriend she gave me a very long and irritated “Naija babe” hiss, she aired out her frustrations with this whole dating business. "Daddy we are no longer dating." “I’m so very sorry my love, but what happened I queried,” very anxious to hear the gist, cause me and my Princess are just that close. This is my daughter’s 3rd boyfriend since she started dating, and she has only been with him for barely 6months… "Daddy, please I’m tired, he is not ambitious, he has no drive, and he is too laid back for his own good, how can I marry a man like that? To make matters worse, he thinks I am overly ambitious, he says I do way too much – please tell me how that’s a bad thing.” Hummmmm, my daughter, my princess my pride and joy is unhappy. 
You see since childhood, my Princess has been very independent, very focused and determined - no nonsense kind of ‘chic’, (can an apple fall too far from its tree). She is intelligent and extremely hardworking, I mean what more could a man ask for in a woman? Quickly, I was thinking of how to calm my ticked off Princess down. "Darling, you know daddy will always love you no matter what, most importantly you know damn too well that you are not under any pressure to get married. So be patient, concentrate on your carrier and yourself my darling, he will come when he comes, and if he doesn't come, have your baby, I wouldn't mind another grandchild." Did I really say that? Oh! Yes I did, and I meant that.

Iranian woman barred from office for being too beautiful


Looking at her photos she's definitely pretty but how is she too pretty to be a council woman? 27 year old architect Nina Siahkali Moradi finished 14th among 163candidates in a city council election in Iran but was told a week later that all votes for her were nullified.

According to The Times of London, after news spread that Moradi had been elected, religious conservatives petitioned to have her disqualified because she's 'too attractive.' and would be a cause of distraction. "We don’t want a catwalk model on the council," a senior official in Qazvin said.

The review board later claimed Nina was disqualified not because she was too attractive but because of her 'non-observance of Islamic codes'. Some who opposed her election said she had only been elected because she is young and attractive.

A law expert in Qazvin, told Iran Wire that the review board violated election law with its decision to bar Moradi from taking a seat.

Egyptian Forces Drag Islamists Out Of Cairo Mosque

Islamists

Egyptian security forces have cleared remaining Islamist protesters from a Cairo mosque after a stand-off and an exchange of fire, a security source has told AFP.
Supporters of ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi were dragged from the mosque by police on Saturday, the official said.
Witnesses said that Egyptian security forces stormed the al-Fateh mosque after firing tear gas at hundreds of supporters of the country’s ousted president barricaded inside.
The mosque served as a field hospital and morgue following clashes on Friday in the area.
Earlier, while trying to drag supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi out of a Cairo mosque, crowds tried to attack them, refusing to leave the mosque, despite being surrounded by security forces, including police who fired in the air to keep mobs from attacking the Islamists.
Witnesses said that Egyptian security forces stormed the al-Fateh mosque after firing tear gas at hundreds of supporters of the country’s ousted president barricaded inside.
Local journalist Shaimaa Awad said on Saturday that security forces rounded up protesters inside the mosque, located in Cairo’s central Ramses Square.
Egypt’s official news agency MENA reported that gunmen opened fire on security forces from the mosque’s minaret.
Local television stations broadcast live footage of soldiers firing assault rifles at the minaret.
The mosque served as a field hospital and morgue following clashes on Friday in the area.
The protesters barricaded themselves inside overnight out of fears of being beaten by vigilante mobs or being arrested by authorities.

"FG can't meet ASUU's N92b demand' - Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala says


Minister of finance, Ngozi Okonjo Iweala said yesterday during the opening of the two-day meeting of Commissioners of Finance and Accountants-General of States, that the federal government can't meet the N92billion being demanded by ASUU.

 Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala said
“At present, ASUU wants the Federal Government to pay N92 billion in extra allowances, when the resources are not there, and when we are working to integrate past increases in pensions. We need to make choices in this country as we are getting to the stage where recurrent expenditures take the bulk of our resources and people get paid but can do no work. Since I assumed office, the share of recurrent expenditure in our total budgets had increased astronomically. In fact, recurrent expenditure accounted for about 77.2 per cent of the federal budget and we are now working to re-balance this ratio.
The country is still suffering from the effect of the 2010 increase in salary. Do we want to get to a stage in this country that all the money we earn is used to pay salaries and allowances? If the demands of the university lecturers are met and we continue to pay them salaries and allowances, we will not be able to provide infrastructure in the universities.”
So what does this mean? Students will continue to stay at home?

UK visa: Nigerians to begin payment of £3,000 bond from November


It's a done deal people. From November 2013, Nigeria will be among the six listed Commonwealth 'high risk' countries whose citizens will be required to pay £3,000 tourists visa bond before they are allowed into the UK. The remaining five are: India, Kenya, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

But here's what the UK government are saying to pacify citizens of these countries who are outraged by this new policy. They say it's not all visitors that will be required to pay the bond, just people they consider 'highest risk'; that is people who will collect visa and refuse to leave Britain or overstay their visa terms. Those paying bonds will receive the bond back, if they abided by the terms of their visa.

According to the UK Financial Times report last Friday, the UK Home Office say there's no going back as the scheme is their most effective way of tackling abuse in their immigration system. Nigeria and the other five countries account for more than five hundred thousand visa applications in 2012.

But this scheme will kinda affect business in the UK as Nigeria is said to be the 6th biggest spenders on luxury goods in the country.
