A new study shows women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant have bigger risk of having babies with neural tube birth defects as they avoid diets that reduce or eliminate carbohydrates.

The defects are malformations of the spine, spinal cord and the absence of major portions of the brain and skull, when compared with women who do not restrict their carbohydrate intake.

Ronaldo pulls off bizarre goal celebration in Valencia romp

Real Madrid returned to their frightening best in a 1-4 romp of Valencia after breaking the away game jinx that has seen them go without wins in five consecutive games this season.

The result brought succour to the Zinedine Zidane's side who crashed out of the Copa Del Rey to Leganes in midweek encounter following a 2-2 aggregate score and much so was the relief for Cristiano Ronaldo as depicted by his recent weird goal celebration.

The Portuguese superstar had scored twice from the spot to earn his 100th penalty goals for club and country before Brazilian defender Marcelo scored the third.

Zimbabwe is on high alert following cholera outbreak in Chegutu town that killed four people and 32 other cases reported, Health and Child Care Minister, David Parirenyatwa, said on Monday.

Statistics proves Mourinho is right to let Mkhitaryan go by Francis Onyema

Hennrikh Mkhitaryan is set to become an Arsenal football player in a swap deal that sees Alexis Sanchez head to the red half of Manchester.

The Armenia captain was signed by Jose Mourinho, in the 2016 summer transfer window, to provide the creative spark that was much needed to rejuvenate the Old Trafford club, in order to compete at all fronts but especially in the EPL.

Mkhitaryan's stay at Old Trafford has been cut short as the deal to join Arsenal is at best the best deal for him to get back to the level he played at Borussia Dortmund before Mourinho swooped for him.


The debate, however, remains whether Mourinho is right to let the talented star leave Man United in the January transfer window. Or should Micki had been given more time to flourish at Old Trafford?

Prior to his move to United, he was a creative force to reckon with in Europe.

Why Nigeria may be fantastically corrupt under Buhari

I wasn't surprised that President Buhari's media team would roll out every strategy, including lying to themselves, to defend the presidency over the damning assertion of the then British Prime Minister, David Cameron that Nigeria, alongside Afghanistan, was "fantastically corrupt."

And I believe the senior special assistant to Buhari on media and publicity, Garba Shehu spearheaded that team. No doubt, it is their job defend the Buhari government including lying to the populace. It's a shame! What I find appalling, however, is the gross insincerity of Nigerian public office holders- a situation where black is called white and two added to five automatically equals twenty-five.

The APC change conundrum and the future of Nigeria by Francis Onyema

It is becoming very confusing to explain the "change" agenda of All Progressives Congress (APC) and the fact that politicians continue to orchestrate deceits in order to capture political power by all means.

What is more confusing is whether the democratic political system presided over by President Buhari and his team is in the best interest of the common majority. Otherwise how would one explain key political decisions that aggravate the pains of the masses and heightens tension in the society? Political decisions, especially in a democratic setting, should reflect "the greatest happiness of the greatest number". Anything short of this spells doom.

Many political decisions that neglected the happiness of the people recorded a form of reaction from the revolutionary forces in history.

Muhammad Ali was the "greatest human" who ever lived

Muhammad Ali was handsome; a fighter and a religious man. He was a believer - he believed more in his abilities- and that, no doubt, set him out as a winner. Perhaps, the greatest lesson we can draw from the world boxing legend.

Before that famous fight with Liston in Miami, Clay, as Ali was known before converting to Islam, in a pre-fight build up dubbed Liston "the big ugly guy" and boasted he would beat and donate him to the zoo. Many thought Clay's rant was out of fear as he faced a man who destroyed former "heavyweight champion Floyd Patterson in two first-round knock outs" but it turned out to be a show of believe. At the Age of 22, the man to be celebrated as "greatest human" shook the world and announced "I am the greatest." Clay had beaten Liston - a dominating fighter with a criminal past and ties to the mob - to be crowned the heavy weight champion in 1964.

Muhammad Ali loved every bit of himself and was never intimidated by ethn…
