Doctor, Nurse Arrested As Patient Allegedly Dies After Abortion

The Ogun Police Command says it has arrested one Dr. Olawale Raji and a nurse, Funmilayo Olusegun, for allegedly carrying out an abortion that led to the death of one Aminat Atisola.

The suspects were reported to have been arrested on Thursday, 26th July, 2018.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said their arrest followed a complaint from Bose Kazeem, a resident of Atan, Ota, who is the sister of the deceased.

He said Aminat was two months’ pregnant and had contracted the service of the two suspects who worked in a private hospital for the abortion.

Oyeyemi said that the suspects carried out the illegal abortion in the house of the victim.

He disclosed that trouble started when Aminat developed complications shortly after the abortion was carried out, and that she died as she was being rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, Abeokuta.

Oyeyemi said when the Divisional Police Officer, Onipanu Divisional headquarters of the command at Ota, Sangobiyi Johnson, got the report, he led his team of detectives to the scene where the two medical practitioners were promptly arrested.

He said Aminat’s remains have been deposited in the mortuary of the State General Hospital, Ota, for post mortem examination.

Meanwhile, the state Commissioner for Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered that the suspects be transferred to homicide section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Abeokuta, for proper investigation and prosecution.

He warned that “abortion remains illegal and whoever is caught engaging in it without any medical justification will have the law of the land to contend with.”

55-Year-Old Woman Throws Grandchild Into Well To Teach Daughter-In-law Lesson

A woman identify as Aisha Ibrahim, has been arrested by the police in Niger state for killing her two-year-old grandchild. Aisha was said to have tied her grandchild with a rope and threw her inside a well in their compound at Karaya Fulani Camp in the Rafi local government area of the state. The woman, Northern city news reports committed the crime to get at the mother of the deceased, who is her daughter in-law.

It was gathered that Aisha threw the child into the well, when her son, Bello and his wife left her grandchild in her care to attend a christening at a neighbouring village. Aisha who was said to have been at loggerheads with her daughter-in-law said she threw the child into the well to teach her a lesson.
She lamented that since her son married his wife, there had been a lot of unresolved issues. She said: “I told my husband to tell his son to divorce his wife but he did not listen to me. My daughter-in-law is fond of insulting and assaulting me all the time and the only way I could pay her back was to tie her daughter with the rope and throw her inside a well to die so that she will equally feel the pains and agony I have been going through.

“We have been living in peace as one big family before my son married her; I have 12 children and all of us are living in one compound; she cannot come from somewhere to destroy the family I have suffered for years to keep, it is unacceptable. “It was temptation, I didn’t know when I did it, I can’t just tell but may Allah forgive me. Honestly, it was a wicked act that can never be accepted anywhere in the world," Aisha said. 

Confirming the incident, the spokesperson for Niger police command, Muhammad Abubakar, said the suspect had confessed to the crime and regretted her action. He also said that Aisha would be arraigned in court after investigation.

Two women, Dorcas Adilewa and Ifeoluwa Olubanjo, were yesterday brought before a Yaba Magistrates’ Court in Lagos for allegedly conspiring to fake the abduction of Adilewa to collect ransom from her family. Adilewa, 19, and Olubanjo, 20, are facing a two-count charge, bordering on conspiracy and kidnap with intent to demand ransom.

According to him, the offences contravene sections 3 and 6 of the Kidnapping Prohibition Law of Lagos State, 2017. The two women, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges. Magistrate Mrs K.B. Ayeye granted them bail in the sum of N100, 000 with two sureties each in like sum. She said that the sureties must be gainfully employed with their addresses verified by the court.

Morning Rituals For a Beautiful Day

Positive attitudes create great days, and the best time to generate positivity is in the morning. In those precious early hours, we establish our mindset for the entire day, so it’s important to treat this critical period with attention and respect. Make time for a mindful morning by trying some of these simple rituals, which can be performed in as little as five minutes. By easing into the morning with purpose, you are able to create a clear head and an open mind, ensuring a day full of positive energy and enthusiasm.
It’s easy, just add these must-dos to your morning schedules and reap the benefits all day long;
Drink a Glass of Warm Lemon Water:
Drinking a glass of warm water with lemon first thing in the morning is an excellent way to get your body going. The lemon will help get your digestive system ready for the coming meals, and makes the water tastier. You can add a bit of honey to it as well if you want to cut down on some of the tartness.
Wake Up Earlier: This is priority one because in order to fit in a fantastic morning you’re going to need some extra time compared to your current routine. If you’ve turned into a night owl because of the peace and quiet it affords, you’ll be equally satisfied by the same peace and quiet an early morning provides, and it’s simply a matter of shifting your personal time to the wee hours of the morning rather than late at night. The difference to your body is noticeable.
Scrape Your Tongue: Taking time to scrape your tongue is one morning routine you won’t want to give up once you start it. It helps get rid of morning breath, and also is in line with the rejuvenation process you need to do to make the transition from sleep to wakefulness each day. As a bonus you’ll be able to taste your food better without the film that’s on your tongue even after brushing your teeth.
Do a Stretching Routine:
Starting off with just some morning stretches until that becomes a habit is very important, as time goes on, you can start transitioning yourself in doing some yoga and other exercises when you organically start to feel like you could do more than just stretch. When first starting out it doesn’t matter how long you stretch, just as long as you do it. If you only have a few minutes for it, just do a few minutes. You’ll find that as you develop the habit, you’ll end up stretching for longer periods of time, and it will naturally expand on its own without the need to force yourself to do it for a set time.
Listen to Uplifting Music or Audiobook:
Starting your morning with music you find beautiful, or a book you find inspirational or motivational, is the perfect way to set yourself up for success. It can give you something to look forward to in the morning, and sets you up with the right mindset to greet the day. You can adjust your music for the type of day you want to have, whether you need something that gets you pumped for an action-packed day, or something more soothing so you can handle a stressful day. The mind is hungry for new tidbits of information it can go to work on, and you should feed it every day, the same way you feed your body. Choose your songs carefully though, as they can get stuck in your head, and if this sort of thing drives you crazy you might be better off listening to a book.
Green Smoothie Time: It’s time to nourish the body with a refreshing green smoothie. The green part of the smoothie is what’s really going to help boost your energy levels in the morning. That’s because it will likely be spinach, kale, or some other leafy green providing phytonutrients, fiber, and minerals. Set a timer for 30 minutes after you drink it and notice how much better you feel.
Meditate for a Few Minutes: Right now you should be in a really happy place, a green smoothie coursing through your digestive system, and all of the helpful things you’ve done should all be having a cumulative effect. There’s no better time to sit and clear your mind for a few minutes than now. There’s also no right way to meditate, so if you’ve tried specific methods and didn’t really like it, it’s time to develop your own personal style. Choose a position that you find comfortable, and decide if you’d like music or not. Just sitting and listening to the silence can be enough for most.
Write Out Your Top 3 for the Day:
It is important to write out the three things you really want to get done for the day, and above all always make sure they get done. Once you establish the habit of getting the most important things of the day done, you’ll be able to build up confidence and go for bigger and bigger things.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry strike deal to become club manager

The Arsenal and France legend is ready to lead Villa’s charge back into the Premier League - once he has had reassurances from the Championship club’s mega-wealthy new owners.
Steve Bruce remains in charge at Villa Park. But new majority shareholders Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens are unconvinced if he is the right man to take the Villans back to the Premier League.
And they have already turned to Henry, who announced after the World Cup he wants to be a full-time manager.
The 40-year-old was Roberto Martinez’s assistant as Belgium reached the semi-finals in Russia but now wants to go it alone as a boss.
A source who is close to the takeover negotiations told Starsport last night Henry had “verbally agreed” to be Villa’s new boss.

What Is Sleep Paralysis

Sleep paralysis is a feeling of being conscious but unable to move. It occurs when a person passes between stages of wakefulness and sleep. During these transitions, you may be unable to move or speak for a few seconds up to a few minutes. Some people may also feel pressure or a sense of choking. Sleep paralysis may accompany other sleep disorders such as narcolepsy. Narcolepsy is an overpowering need to sleep caused by a problem with the brain's ability to regulate sleep.

Sleep paralysis usually occurs at one of two times. If it occurs while you are falling asleep, it's called hypnagogic or predormital sleep paralysis. If it happens as you are waking up, it's called hypnopompic or postdormital sleep paralysis. As you fall asleep, your body slowly relaxes. Usually you become less aware, so you do not notice the change. However, if you remain or become aware while falling asleep, you may notice that you cannot move or speak.
Hypnopompic Sleep Paralysis is when your body alternates between REM (rapid eye movement) and NREM (non-rapid eye movement) sleep. One cycle of REM and NREM sleep lasts about 90 minutes. NREM sleep occurs first and takes up to 75% of your overall sleep time. During NREM sleep, your body relaxes and restores itself. At the end of NREM, your sleep shifts to REM. Your eyes move quickly and dreams occur, but the rest of your body remains very relaxed. Your muscles are "turned off" during REM sleep. If you become aware before the REM cycle has finished, you may notice that you cannot move or speak. 

Up to as many as four out of every ten people may have develop sleep paralysis. This common condition is often first noticed in the teen years. But men and women of any age can have it. Sleep paralysis may run in families. Other factors that may be linked to sleep paralysis
• Lack of sleep
• Sleep schedule that changes
• Mental conditions such as stress or bipolar disorder
• Sleeping on the back
• Other sleep problems such as narcolepsy or nighttime leg cramps
• Use of certain medications such as those for ADHD
• Substance abuse

If you find yourself unable to move or speak for a few seconds or minutes when falling asleep or waking up, then it is likely you have isolated recurrent sleep paralysis. Often there is no need to treat this condition.
Check with your doctor if you have any of these concerns:
• You feel anxious about your symptoms
• Your symptoms leave you very tired during the day
• Your symptoms keep you up during the night
Your doctor may want to gather more information about your sleep health by doing any of the following:
• Ask you to describe your symptoms and keep a sleep diary for a few weeks
• Discuss your health history, including any known sleep disorders or any family history of sleep disorders
• Refer you to a sleep specialist for further evaluation
• Conduct overnight sleep studies or daytime nap studies to make sure you do not have another sleep disorder

It is important to note that most people need no treatment for sleep paralysis. Treating any underlying conditions such as narcolepsy may help if you are anxious or unable to sleep well.
To help control sleep paralysis, start by making sure you get enough sleep and always do what you can to relieve stress in your life especially just before bedtime. Try new sleeping positions if you sleep on your back. And be sure to see your doctor if sleep paralysis routinely prevents you from getting a good night's sleep.

Knowing who you are is the most important thing in life and as women become more comfortable in their own way, they can do amazing things. With the combination of ‘’confidence, style and personality’’ women show what I call real beauty. The questions that keep knocking in every woman’s head are;

• What does it mean to be ‘’beautiful’’?
• What does ‘’beauty’’ truly mean in the sense of age, especially for women who are at the prime of their lives?
• What’s the true meaning behind having confidence, style and personality in regards to age?
Let us now analyze these one by one.

1. Confidence: Means the ability to hold your head up high and bother not about what others think. It’s the ability in you not involving or tolerating doubt. Strong hold and belief in yourself will give reflection of others being able to trust your ability. Confidence is an important trait for a woman and it has to come from within you. Because as time grows we grow older and face lots of challenges; which seem to boost our confidence and self esteem. It’s so true to that saying that age makes you stronger, never to be knocked down.

2. Style: Is the way a woman carries herself with clothes, accessories, and physical appearance. ‘’Style’’ also refers to the general attitude conveyed through movement, words of mouth and eye
contact. Only when all of these are put together can there be a strong, independent female vibes that encompasses attitude and beauty. While clothes and physical appearance are related to visible
beauty, it’s the underlying side of beauty that really comes with age. Style is learned not immediately present from the word-go. It’s this learned elements of life experience that radiates the true beauty from within.

3. Personality: compared to style and confidence, personality is the most standardised element of a person. It encompasses the traits you’re born with and the way you understand things about the world which changes over time. However, personality always seems to stay with you as something that is essentially who you really are, the way you interact with others, vies yourself, and take on the world all rolled into one.

Personality can have positive and negative traits, yet in the end, they always seem to balance each other out. A person’s personality is a connection to their beauty. While beauty is a combination of the
good traits you have and exhibit, as well as the ability to show them off and wear them like you would your favorite outfit; gracefully with a smile. Being who you are is important and it’s a pride.

4. Knowing who you are: knowing who you are and where you’re going are two of the most important parts of life and as women become more comfortable in their own way, they can do amazing things. Girls, if you get one thing out of this piece, then you shouldn’t worry about what others think or say as long as the good in you is visible and of value. It’s in your soul, your mind and in the heart to live a life that pleases you so the talk of good never cease. Go out and get what you want because you’re worth it in the end.
