Michael Brown's father asks for calm in new video hours before grand jury decision

No comments :
FERGUSON, MO—Just hours before what is likely to be a grand jury decision in the case involving the murder of an unarmed teenager, Micheal Brown, JR. who was shot by a Ferguson Police Officer on Aug.9th, Micheal Brown, SR. father of deceased young man has issued a last-minute plea for calm. 
Speaking in a newly released video, Brown, SR. said- No matter what the grand jury decides, I do not want my son’s death to be in vain— I want it to lead to positive change,” a very somber Brown says in a public service announcement released late Thursday. “I thank you for lifting your voices to end racial profiling and police intimidation, but hurting others or destroying property is not the answer.”

The late Brown family have called for the continuation of peaceful protest repeatedly.

Officer Darren Wilson, 28, Brown who was 18 at the time of his death . The very gruesome murder has provoked several months of violent protest and once again raises questions about racism and justice.
A grand jury has been hearing evidence in the case since they first convened on Aug. 20 and will decide if there is probable cause to charge Wilson, 28, with a crime. The officer could face up to life in prison if the case proceeds to trial. The issue at hand is how Brown died. According to the reports made available by police, it states that Brown struggled with Wilson inside his police car, then reached for Wilson's weapon. However, eye witnesses and some of Brown's family members say Wilson shot and killed Brown as he raised his hands in surrender.

Results: 2015 Nations cup qualifiers

No comments :
Although current AFCON champions Nigeria have bowed out of the qualifiers after their 2-2 draw with South Africa, Africa's favorites Ivory Coast, along with Ghana and Cameroon have all qualified for the 2015 edition of the Nations Cup.

From Group E, Ghana's Mubarak Wakaso netted a beautiful long-range strike in their 3-1 victory over Togo to book their place at the finals. The Black Stars topped their group with 11 points and will be joined by Guinea whose 2-0 win over Uganda in Morocco sealed their runners-up spot.

In Group D, top rated African team Ivory Coast reserved their Nations Cup spot after a rather dull 0-0 draw with Cameroon's 10-man squad, the Indomitable Lions were down by 1 player after Stephane Mbia was sent off right before the final whistle in Abidjan. Cameroon made the event with their top position in Group D with 14 points, Ivory Coast following behind with 4 points ans showed little or no enthusiasm in the game as it ended with either side making the net, or even showing a desire to do so.

Africa's number 1 team on FIFA World ranking Algeria are also headed to the finals inspite of their 2-0 loss to Mali who also qualified for the competition. 

Algeria, Mali, Cape Verde Islands, South Africa, Congo, IVORY COAST, Ghana, Cameroon, Tunisia, Zambia, Burkina Faso, Gabon, Senegal and Equatorial Guinea

Former Super Eagles player, Okocha questions players' passion following AFCON failure

No comments :

Former Super Eagles star Jay-Jay Okocha questions the passion of the current national team following Wednesday performance which led to the reigning AFCON champions crashing out of the 2015 Nations Cup qualifiers. Nigeria failed to qualify for next year's Nations Cup after drawing 2-2 against South Africa in Uyo, marking their second exit before the tournament in three editions.

South Africa's Tokelo Ranti scored twice in both half of the game, they however slipped after a late equalizer by the Eagles denying The Bafana Bafana any chance of a first ever win in Nigeria.
Nigeria who were tied in second place with Congo in Group A of the Nations Cup qualifiers failed to book their place in next year's competition which will be held in Equatorial Guinea as Congo went on to secure their place with a 1-0 victory over Sudan, and, Nigeria, well, crashed out with their 2-2 draw with S/Africa.
Seasoned footballer Okocha questions their passion and believes that the players in the current team should show have shown concern, speaking to he said:
I think, to be honest, we will always produce talented players. But perhaps the question is whether they have the same passion that they used to have, People are pressuring them about that, you know, because sometimes it seems as if they don’t really care much about the result.”
Although the 41-year-old player who won 75 caps during his time in the national team still believes they would have performed well in the competition if they qualified, he insists the Eagles made it difficult earlier in their campaign: Of course it was down to our bad spot, even if we were still in with a chance,” he also added. “I think sometimes players must have a wake-up call before they realize they are back in African football. They left themselves get into a difficult position.”
I have no doubt that had we managed to qualify we would have had a good tournament, because you have to play really well once it comes to the tournament itself. The qualifiers are sometimes a bit tricky here in Africa, so I think if they had qualified they would have had a good tournament.”

Congo and South Africa will join the 16 nation competition which will be held next year.

Leslie Smith's ear EXPLODES during UFC fight with Jessica Eye

No comments :

Mixed Martial Artist Jessica Eye punched Leslie Smith in her ear causing her ear to explode during the UFC 180 championship which was held in Mexico City this past Saturday. Smith who suffers from cauliflower ear, a painful condition that typically affects mixed martial artists (MMA) and wrestlers who do not always wear head gears in training was punched in her cauliflower ear and their 135-pound round off was called off by doctors as a result of the injury. Smith currently has a hole in her ear, and as gory as the injury is, am wishing her speedy recovery.

Warning-very gory image:
Smith posted close-up pictures of her ears after the fight ended and from her post, she doesn't seem to happy about the fight either, the 32-year-old mixed martial art fighter said:
"I was pretty mad in the cage. I saw some pictures afterward and I appreciate the doctors looking out for me. I guess. I should've adjusted to protect my ear before the doctors had to stop it. Thank you for all the support, thank you to my sponsors Kleinburg Private Wealth, Venum, Major's Pharmacy, Vitality Bowls, and WODBOX. Thank you to my team and my coaches at El NiƱo Training Center for getting me ready. Thank you to all the fight fans. I'll do better next time."

Preview:AFCON 2015 QUALIFIERS Nigeria vs South Africa

No comments :
The Super Eagles of Nigeria will face the Bafana Bafana of South Africa on Wednesday the 19th of November as they hope to secure a place in next year's African Cup of Nations; anything less than a win could slash any hope of making it to the tournament in Equatorial Guinea.

Nigeria currently sits in second place in their Group A, and are level on 7 points with Congo who will go against Sudan in their final qualifiers. South Africa clearly sits atop the group with 11 points clear while Sudan currently occupies the bottom position in the group. Although the running joke for years is that South Africa can only qualify for tournaments as host, with their current standing in Group A which they earned from three wins and two draws, its safe to say they have firmly secured their place in next year's tournament, and, they are not hosts!

South Africa's senior national team boosted their chances of making it to Africa's biggest tournament after their 2-1 victory over Sudan in Durban over the weekend.

Nigeria and Congo are now left to battle it out for the second spot from the group.
All hope is not lost, current AFCON champions, Nigeria currently has a 10-year unbeaten run over South Africa, to secure a spot, they will need to keep up with this not so surprising record. Nigeria gained some advantage after their 2-0 victory over Congo in their weekend encounter, so Congo will have to either match or beat the outcome in their game against Sudan in order to secure the second spot in the group (Assuming South Africa breaks the chain of defeat against Nigeria.)

CAF confirmed earlier in the month that the all new Akwa Ibom International Stadium in Uyo will be the host for 2015 Nations Cup qualifiers between Nigeria and South Africa which kicks off at 6PM local time.
