“We know quite well that beating up the police is condemnable, though the priest has said he has no business with beating the police and did not tell anyone to beat the police.”

Research published in the journal Nature has shown that vaccinated monkeys can clear Simian Immunodeficiency Virus (SIV) infection from their bodies.
It was effective in nine of the 16 monkeys that were inoculated.
The US scientists say they now want to use a similar approach to test a vaccine for HIV in humans.
Prof Louis Picker, from the Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute at Oregon Health and Science University, said: "It's always tough to claim eradication - there could always be a cell which we didn't analyse that has the virus in it. But for the most part, with very stringent criteria... there was no virus left in the body of these monkeys."

Cape Verdean Football Association Sanctioned

Cape Verde sanctioned; Tunisia through to final FIFA World Cup qualifying round...

By means of a telephone conference, the FIFA Disciplinary Committee has today taken a decision to sanction the Cape Verdean Football Association (FCF) for fielding an ineligible player in the preliminary competition match for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ between Tunisia and the Cape Verde Islands on 7 September 2013.

The match has been declared to be forfeited and awarded 3-0 in favour of Tunisia, meaning that the Cape Verde Islands will not progress to round three of the FIFA World Cup™ African zone qualifiers having dropped to second place in Group B with nine points while Tunisia finish first with 14 points and will now advance.

The FCF has also received a fine of CHF 6,000 after the FIFA Disciplinary Committee considered the FCF liable for having breached art. 55 par. 1 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code and art. 8 of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Regulations.

The sanction relates to the Cape Verde player Fernando Varela failing to serve the full four-match suspension imposed on him after receiving a red card for unsporting conduct towards a match official during a FIFA World Cup™ qualifier on 24 March 2013.

The draw for round three of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers in the African zone will be conducted next Monday, 16 September. The five best-placed sides in the FIFA World Ranking, which will be released today following the outcome of this disciplinary case, will be seeded in the draw

A Disappointment that turned into Blessing

Years ago in Dublin, the Robinson family had a dream. Robinson and his wife worked and saved, making plans for their nine children and themselves to travel to the United States.It had taken years, but they had finally saved enough money and had gotten passports and reservations for the whole family on a new liner to the United States.The entire family filled with anticipation and excitement about their new life. …
However, seven days before their departure, the youngest son was bitten by a dog. Because of the possibility of rabies, they were being quarantined for fourteen days…..the family’s dreams were dashed….they would not be able to make the trip to America as they had planned. The father, filled with disappointment and anger, stomped to the dock to watch the ship leave – without the  family. The father shed tears of disappointment and cursed both his son and God for their misfortune.
Five days later, the tragic news spread throughout the land that, the mighty Tittanic had sunk….the unsinkable ship had sunk, taking hundreds of lives with it. The Robinson family was to have been on that ship, but because the son had been bitten by a dog, they were left behind.
When Mr. Robinson heard the news, he hugged his son and thanked him for saving the family…..He thanked God for saving their lives and turning what he had felt was a tragedy into a blessing.
Although we may not always understand, all things happen for a reason….REMEMBER…..BEHIND EVERY DISAPPOINTMENT, THERE IS A BLESSING.

Governor Adams Oshiomole had this to say regarding Daniel.......
              “without meaning to encourage anyone else, we decided to support him by sending him to one of the top secondary schools in Edo State that is owned by the Government. The reason for opting for a boarding school is that we think that there need to closely watch him which his parents could not do. “He is an intelligent young man with uncommon challenges, but one that has a vision. We had him examined by people who should know and the result confirmed that he is normal”, Oshiomhole noted. “This incident was probably the kind of trigger that we needed to improve the facilities at our Airports. ……”                                                                                                                                                               Maybe I should go and hide in a plane

Avast Internet Security and Avast 2050 Crack Free download

Today, I want to share with you guys the steps and procedures for downloading and installing an Anti-virus software. We have different kinds of Anti-virus programs/softwares, such as ESET, McAfee, Norton, Avast etc. I am only going to talk about Avast! There are two versions of Avast Anti-virus software- the Avast free Anti-virus and the Avast internet security. The difference between the two is that Avast Internet security Anti-virus program can protect your computer or any other device that uses Avast Internet security Anti-virus program from online attacks and also protect your system, files, programs etc, from malwares, viruses, etc. The Avast free virus does not protect you from online attacks. Now that we are clear as to the difference e between the two, let’s move at the speed of light. I am going to teach you guys how and where to get Avast Internet security (I prefer Avast internet security). The version of the Avast internet security is 8.0.1489. To download avast internet security, visit Click Here (always skip the ‘stupid’ Ad). Don’t visit any other site! The software is about 120MB to 141MB. The software is usually in trial mode. Some of them are already expired or are yet to expire. Do not worry, I have got a fix for that. The next step after downloading the Avast internet security would be to download another program. The program is actually a patch/crack which will remove the trial version of the avast internet security. This application will extend the date of the license/expiry date of the avast internet security to 2050! Yes, I said till 2050! To download the application, visit Click Here (always skip the ‘stupid’ Ad). The instructions as to how to use the avast crack (about 1.2MB) is in the compressed file. Unzip it and you are done! After installing the Avast, go to User Interface and click on Settings at the top right hand corner. Go down and click on Troubleshooting. Disable “Enable Avast! Self-Defense module”. This step is very necessary. This has to be done before you run the crack (i.e. setup.exe in the avast crack you have downloaded). If you had done all these, run the setup.exe in the avast crack. Reboot your system…. Open the Avast Program and click on maintenance. Then, click on subscription and yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, your Avast Internet has been licensed by ZeNiX and the expiry date is around 2050! ENJOY!
