ARSENAL'S AARON RAMSEY SIGNS JUVENTUS PRE-CONTRACT AGREEMENT.

=

Aaron Ramsey has signed a pre-contract agreement to join Juventus from Arsenal in the summer, according to Sky in Italy.

The midfielder completed his Juventus medical over the weekend, and Sky Sports News understands the move will be made official in February.

Ramsey has been free to negotiate a pre-contract agreement this month with clubs outside England permitted to sign Premier League players in the final six months of their contracts.

Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich have also been linked with the 28-year-old but Juventus have remained his first choice, according to Sky sources.

Sky Sports News exclusively revealed in October that Ramsey would be leaving the Emirates next summer, after he was told in person why he would not be offered a new deal.
Ramsey joined Arsenal from Cardiff in 2008 and has scored 53 goals in his 253 Premier League games.
He has made 31 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions this season scoring four goals.
A three-time FA Cup winner with the Gunners, Ramsey scored the winning goals in the finals against Hull (2014) and Chelsea (2017).

He is now poised to join Cristiano Ronaldo at one of Europe's most powerful clubs.

Juventus are nine points clear at the top of Serie A as they chase an eighth successive title.

Age Is Just A Number: Maturity's What Really Matters In Relationships






“The heart wants what the heart wants” is a cliche that couldn't be more accurate. We truly can't help with whom we fall in love. Love doesn't care if someone is older or younger, but we certainly do. 
Society holds a negative stigma regarding age differences, which causes people to obsess over it. And, that is why when we start developing feelings for people outside of our age brackets, we think our feelings are wrong. 

We often put up walls and flee for the mountains, but before shutting the door on the chance at love, think about your potential lover's maturity level.

If you both are on the same level of maturity, don't let the attached age number cloud your decision. Maybe you met an older lover when you were still immature. Each person we meet has a purpose in our life.

Maybe this person isn't meant for you during your years of evolution, but you'll come back to each other when you each hold the same mindset. Or, maybe this person was in your life at the wrong time to teach you something. Whatever the case, it may have happened for a reason. Maybe he's 30 and you are 20, but he is just as confused about his life as you are about yours. It might be scary having a 10-year difference in age, but you both are experiencing similar things in life. I don't see why that number should stop the blossoming between two lovebirds.

Of course, he has seen more days on this Earth, but that doesn't mean he understands where he stands in life more than you do. If you both want the same thing from the relationship, then you have settled half the battle. Just like couples who are the same age, if you aren't on the same page, things will be just as difficult.

Not only does society judge dating outside our ages, but it also expects that we all age and develop at the same rate. Furthermore, it is expected that with age comes maturity, which isn't true. 



Maturity is something that develops after experiences we face in life; you don't just magically become mature on your 25th birthday. You can mature at a very young age, or maybe, you never truly mature. 

But, society makes us feel that if we haven't figured out ourselves by our mid-20's  we have lived and are continuing to live incorrectly. The majority of us have future plans and hope to be at a certain point by a certain age, but that isn't always the reality of the situation. People always say, “Act your age.” We are expected to leave our childish behaviors at our high school graduations and be mature “adults.” That is not the case for everyone, though, because we are all on our own, natural paths.

Experiences happen to people at different times in life, causing some to grow up faster or slower than the norm. You can be 24 years old with the mindset of a 45-year-old or vice versa.

Though I'm not an expert in relationships by any means, ultimately, leave all judgment behind when you find someone truly special. No two people are the same, just like no two romances are the same. Take each person as he or she comes.

I know lovers who are nine years apart and just as happy as those who are two months apart in age. Don't close yourself off based on age, but take into consideration where people of different ages are in their lives. Just because someone is a certain age doesn't mean he or she fits a certain status quo.

Allow love to work its mysterious magic if you find yourself having a special connection with someone who is older or younger than you. Explore it and let it grow beautifully.

FLAWS OF CARRYING A BIG BAG




Bigger isn’t always better, especially where bags are concerned! Keep your stuff safe by finding a bag that’s just the right size for you. The bigger the bag, the more you’re likely to cram in it. Not only is a big, heavy bag bad for your back, but it’s bad for your belongings, too.

If your bag is jam-packed full of stuff, there’s a good chance all of that stuff will bang together during your travels, potentially damaging some of your items. The weight from an overstuffed bag may also be damaging to some of the items on the bottom of your bag. Try going with a medium-sized bag, so you won’t be tempted to over pack. 




Digging deep:
The bigger the bag, the deeper you dig when you’re hunting for your keys, cell phone, iPod, whatever. When you do that, not only are you making a big mess in your bag, but you’re knocking everything together. There’s no way that’s good for all the precious goods you’re carrying. Look for a smaller bag with divided sections to keep everything in its place. 


 Big bag, big target: 
If you carry a giant bag, you might as well walk around carrying a sign that says, “Look at me, I’ve got lots of stuff!” There’s nothing wrong with catching attention, but sometimes it’s better to be a little more discreet where your bag is concerned. 


All your goods in one place:
You’ve heard the saying about putting all of your eggs in one basket, right? It’s never a good idea, and the same theory is true with your bag. If you’ve got your laptop, camera, phone, iPod, money, credit card, ID and every other expensive or
precious item you own all in one place, then you risk losing it all at the same time, too. If that bag gets stolen or misplaced, you’ll lose whatever is in it. Get a smaller bag and carry only the things you really need.

EPL: Solskjaer sets new law for Manchester United players


Manchester United interim boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has ordered players to wear their official club suits to all matches.

The United stars are still allowed to travel in their club tracksuits, as they did on the train to Watford for Sunday’s 1-0 win over Tottenham.

But when Solskjaer and his players arrived at Wembley 24 hours later, they were more formally dressed in suit and tie on the instructions of their caretaker manager.

It is one of the ground rules Solskjaer has borrowed from Sir Alex Ferguson, who was seen at United’s Carrington training ground again on Saturday, before the squad left for London.

The 45-year-old, who has done the same at Molde, informed the United players of the new regulation on their warm-weather training break last week.

“In Dubai we had time get the tactics right and some principles laid down,” he said before the win over Spurs.

How ‘Amala’ killed four family members in Kwara






Four members of a family in Ilorin have been feared dead after eating `amala’ meal, suspected to be poisonous.

The incident happened at Magaji-Ogo community behind Kwara State College of Arabic and Islamic Legal Studies, in Ilorin West Local Government Area.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) learnt that four others who took from the meal, had also been hospitalised at the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH).

A source told NAN that the victims took the meal on Sunday night before three of them were found dead the following morning.
According to him, the fourth casualty, who was the head of the family, died on Wednesday. 

“Those feared dead are the family head, his sister and two children, while those recuperating in the hospital are the mother and three other children. 

“The corpses of the deceased had been buried in accordance with Islamic rite. They were eight that took the meal. 


“Though we are not sure yet of the cause of death, the meal was taken alongside amphibian and there is a suspicion that they died of poisoning. 

“Officials from the state Ministry of Health were in the community to take samples of the meal for test but nothing was yet to be said of the findings,’’ the source said. 

Dr Oluwatosin Fakayode, Director, Public Health and Disease Control in the state Ministry of Health, also confirmed the incident. 

He, however, said that the ministry was yet to identify the cause of the “ugly and unfortunate occurrence.” 

Fakayode told NAN that samples from the meal were taken for laboratory investigation, which would be out within the next 24 hours. 

“As it stands, it is difficult to say the cause until the result is out. 

“However, we are definite that it is food poison because of the symptoms, but we are not sure of the food item that is culpable. 

“We learnt they took these amphibian that they hawk around with it. So we are not sure if it is the source of the death because some of them are poisonous. 

Though we have not identified the culprit in terms of whether it is organism or chemical, definitely, it is a symptom of food poison.

“But our suspicion is the amphibian. It could be preservatives that were used on the items that were used for the meal,’’ he said.

SELF LOVE, SELF ACCEPTANCE AND LOVING YOURSELF


Self love: 

Self-love can motivate you to adopt healthy habits and take care of your physical self. Love relates to happiness, whether it is on ourselves or on others. But self love is more important because it helps us to keep our own attitude, our own personal space and sometimes it also helps us to know about ourselves.




SELF ACCEPTANCE;

''Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves, even when we risk disappointing others''
 Let’s be honest, if you cannot love yourself how can you embrace the love of another person? 

You are likely to feel unworthy, while longing for love and intimacy of another person. When you love yourself, life takes care of the details because everything else is minor compared to the acceptance of one’s self.


There are times when you don’t feel lovable. This is normal and we all experience those moments. But self-acceptance is the foundation to living a complete life when you show up with your whole self.




Love Yourself First;

''Your task is not to seek for Love, but merely to seek and find all the Barriers within yourself that you have built against it''
 
When you strip away the stories about who you think you are, underneath it you’ll uncover your authentic self, which at its essence is pure love. 

So, make it a practice to meet with yourself in the mirror on a daily basis so you can love and accept the person reflected back to you. After all, when you love yourself first life
will undoubtedly take care of the rest.
