Agony for Andy: Murray loses Australian Open final to Djokovic by three sets to one

Andy Murray's golden dream of history-making double grand slam titles is over after a four set loss to Serbia's Novak Djokovic.
The world number one rallied from a first set defeat to overcome the Briton in the Australian Open. Murray earlier came through some nervy moments to claim the first set of his Australian Open final against Djokovic in a tie-break.
But Djokovic put the match back to level in the second set and then triumphed in the third and fourth.
The champions were initially evenly-matched, steadily trading blows in a series of long rallies, but Murray began to falter immediately after the Serbian drew level.
The British number one would have created history if he had triumphed in Melbourne as no male player in the Open era has followed up winning their first grand slam title by also winning the next available major crown.

Murray, 25, was the first Briton to reach three Australian Open finals after winning a five-set thriller against Roger Federer on Friday.
However, Djokovic has the upper hand in their head-to-head record - with the Serbian now having won 11 of their 18 meetings, including the final of the competition in 2011.

He still seems to be ignoring Gigi's civil partnership with Sean Yeung, offering a 'moderately deluxe lifestyle' to anyone who successfully pursues his daughter. And the 76-year-old billionaire gave a glimpse of just what he means when by 'moderately deluxe' as he welcomed a reporter into his Happy Lodge home on the western shore of Hong Kong.

North Korean parents 'eat their children' after being driven mad by hunger

A starving man in North Korea has been executed after murdering his two children for food, reports from inside the secretive state claim.
A 'hidden famine' in the farming provinces of North and South Hwanghae is believed to have killed up to 10,000 people and there are fears that incidents of cannibalism have risen.
The grim story is just one to emerge as residents battle starvation after a drought hit farms and shortages were compounded by party officials confiscating food.


In a bizarre turn of events, an eyewitness says that the guards were actually responsible for the lost lives.
An eyewitness to the incident, which happened in the early hours of this morning, said door staff initially did not understand what was happening and tried to stop people leaving by keeping the exit door shut. In what appears to be the deadliest nightclub fire for a decade, people were reportedly screaming 'there's a fire' but were trapped inside the burning Kiss Club, in Santo Maria, southern Brazil.A huge crowd gathered outside the nightclub,  earlier today.

That's right! Christiane Amanpour, one of the world's most honored broadcast journalist must be digging deep at the moment as she gets ready to interview the President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan.

Confirming what seem like a rumour, she tweeted on her twitter page @camanpour
"My interview with President Goodluck Jonathan of #Nigeria will air at 2100 & 2300 local Nigerian time on Wednesday night. @cnni"

Known for her bluntness and brutal confrontation, the interview tonight is said to be a moment of revelation as President Jonathan goes under the pressure of the prolific CNN broadcaster.

Many people has shown concern about the impact of the interview on Nigerians, and to observe some of Amanpour's tweets - "After Mali and Algeria, can #Nigeria get a grip on its own Islamic militant group? I'll ask NIGERIAN PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN Wednesday!"

One might be quick to say that she's getting Mr. President ready for the hot seat. Whichever way it is, many are of the opinion that the credibility of Amanpour cannot in any way permit a staged interview.

Uh oh! Seems we ain't going to be witnessing a Feb 14th mega Idibia wedding anymore!

Cos according to this report, contrary to what has been widely publicized, Tuface and Annie Idibia aren’t walking down the aisle on February 14, 2013.

Instead Tuface Idibia is hoping to stage a lovers’ concert on February 14, in partnership with Now Muzik and Edi Lawani’s Showbiz Network Services.

‘So [unless] he can divide himself into two, there won’t be any wedding that day’ a friend says.

Tuface’s managers could not be reached as at Friday, but his publicist Bayo Omisore says he’s unable to confirm any date for now, until he is given a date by his client.
Sources close to the couple also say the wedding will take place in Dubai.


The first lady looks stunning in her Thom Browne dress and banging new hairdo.

Sunday, 20 January 2013


 Residents of Amansea in Awka, Anambra State woke up yesterday morning Saturday January 19th to a horrifying sight; 40 dead bodies floating in a River in their community. People from the community and some neighbouring ones besieged the Ezu river yesterday to catch a glimpse of the dead bodies. The river is at the boundary between Enugu and Anambra states and the dead bodies were found at the old Enugu-Onitsha road axis of the river.
The corpses whose identities were unknown, were suspected to have been dumped in the river Friday night by unknown persons.

The traditional ruler of Amansea said the community had never witnessed such a gory sight before, while the Commissioner of Police in the state said the dead bodies remained a mystery as there had been no communal clash in Enugu or Anambra where many people were killed. He said investigations are ongoing...

Meanwhile the governor of the state, Peter Obi, has cut short his working trip abroad to return to the state to enable him visit the scene.


Following the report by Channels TV and the buzz it has created on social media about the  dilapitated police college President Jonathan today paid an unscheduled visit to the police college on the way to an ECOWAS meeting in Ivory Coast.
President Goodluck Jonathan’s plane was diverted to Lagos where he made a surprise visit to the police college in Ikeja. Sources say that even his top aides were taken unaware by the unscheduled stop.
The police authorities were also caught unawares and had in fact rented the college to host a private wedding, which is illegal. President Jonathan demanded that the top brass explain these actions to which they had no sufficient answers. Upon hearing this the President immediately commenced an inspection of the college, starting with the student hostels where he discovered dilapidated conditions including no beds and toilets in the rooms.
