New photo of President Buhari relaxing and speaking with one of his Daughters, Hadiza, at Abuja House in London today emerged online.
According to the PUNCH, family members, friends and senior government officials are finding it difficult to access Buhari.
The President’s nephew, Mamman Daura, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Domestic Affairs, Sarki Aba, Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, and the Personal Assistant to the President, Tunde Sabiu are reportedly controlling who speaks to him.
However, the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo and First Lady, Aisha Buhari have unhindered access to Buhari. Any other person must get approval from one or more of the four aides.
“The First Lady is not with him permanently in London, which should normally not be the case. She has had a few clashes with the cabal and she is not happy that they are also firmly in control in London.
“That’s why she goes and comes. She is not happy with the atmosphere over there,” a source told the newspaper.
Another source who spoke on condition of anonymity, said: “The names you have are accurate and they are the ones controlling access to the President in London, even in Nigeria. Some ministers, aides and service chiefs tried to talk to the President on the phone, but they turned them down.
“The few people that have seen the President only saw him because they agreed to it. If they didn’t, it would never have happened, apart from Governor Amosun, who everyone knows is one of Buhari’s best friends.”

It is a never-ending arguable debate that whether sleeping with a pillow is better or without it will be beneficial?
Researchers have come out with many answers and numerous explanations, but even after going through all the studies and articles, when we share a bed with someone new (relatives or friends) we do discuss the advantages and disadvantages of sleeping with a pillow.
Sleeping without a pillow has many health benefits, but there are advantages related to using a pillow too…
Well, leaving all up to you, I would just like to mention a few differences in the advantages of sleeping with or without a pillow.
Benefits of sleeping with a pillow and ancient logic.
In the ancient times, stone, ceramic or wooden pillows were used in order to prevent insects from entering ears, nose, and mouth while sleeping. Later, versions of pillows comprised those of jade, bamboo, and porcelain. But unlike today, they were not made for comfort. The ages have suggested that people have always resorted to keeping their heads on a comparatively raised bar in order to make their sleep more comfortable.
In the present day, there comes a variety of pillows to suit and benefit you in various ways.
#Pillow Type 1: Thinner Pillows
This type of pillow is great for the ones who sleep on their back since it helps in preventing the head from being too far forwards.
#Pillow Type 2: Firm, Thick Pillows
People sleeping on the sides should use this type of pillow since these are specially designed to fill the space between the shoulder and ear.
#Pillow Type 3: Thin, Flat Pillows
Such pillows are good for the sleepers who prefer sleeping on their stomach. Some stomach sleepers do not place a pillow beneath their head rather they put it under their stomach which helps to prevent lower back pain.
#Pillow Type 4: Cervical Pillows
These pillows help in supporting your neck.
However, sleeping without a pillow has its own merits.
#1 Facial Benefits
People argue that sleeping without a pillow can help in reducing the wrinkles. Other facial benefits are also involved, and the reason can be attributed to the fact that the facial skin does not get squished against a pillow.
#2 Spinal Benefits
Sleeping without a pillow allows the spine to rest by the natural curves of your body. While sleeping with a thick pillow can also displace your spine.
#3 Neck Benefits
While the common treatments for shoulder and neck pain involve stretching and heating pads, sleeping without a pillow is the best remedy to prevent pain in shoulder and neck from occurring.
#4 Alignment benefits
It is believed that sleeping without a pillow helps to straighten and normalize the bone structure. Also, by sleeping without a pillow, the problems of humpback can be minimized.
The choice is yours, whatever you choose, go not only with your comfort but also with your health benefit. Since both of them have merits of their own.
Body hair is never welcomed; no one likes to be hairy. Look at this simple and painless way to get rid of hair in any part of your body (even the intimate).
It is quite normal that, when we reach a certain age, we begin to grow hairs in different parts of the body. At first, it seems something very tender and in the case of many, it can even look attractive.
However, this small invader is not appreciated everywhere. That is why both men and women try to eliminate it.
Generally, people resort to various methods to remove body hair. The most common are usually wax and shaving. However, both methods can prove to be dangerous and sometimes very painful. In the case of wax, it can cause a great redness to our skin. Shavers, on the other hand, can cause cuts that leave ugly scars.
For this reason, many choose to use other methods, painless and effective to eliminate, body hair. The best of these methods is that they have no side effects and are very simple. Here’s what you can do to quickly remove body hair.
Eliminate body hair naturally
For this method of hair removal, we will need a little Thanaka. This substance comes from a tree bearing the same name. They are usually very abundant in central Myanmar, although it is exported to the whole world.
By macerating the roots and small pieces of this tree, you get a kind of dust. This product should be mixed with a little Kusuma oil or safflower. When mixing both ingredients, we will get a kind of cream with a rich aroma. This substance will be used to epilate.
This powder can be obtained in any naturalistic store near your locality. Both ingredients are much cheaper than professional hair removal creams. In addition, you do not need to be an expert to use them properly. Just apply it as any other epilation cream and you’re ready to get rid of any unwanted hair.
In addition to being cheaper, the results obtained will leave you with your mouth open. Undoubtedly, this epilation cream is an excellent option to eliminate body hairs.
Everybody wants to protect their body from unnecessary sweating and underarm odor. Not only that it is uncomfortable, it is very tough to get under control, as it demands some effort.
In case you don’t want to use chemical based products or if you aren’t satisfied by the deodorant you have already used, recognize the following very powerful natural remedies that can help you eliminate this unpleasant odor.
Instead of a spray or solution, you could choose to stop shaving in an attempt to eliminate underarm odor.
The body hair is there for reason, as it absorbs the moisture responsible for bacteria or underarm odor. Therefore, if you shave off that hair you could cause irritation, which would help to increase the smell. Hence, by not shaving you allow that smelly moisture to be absorbed, preventing the smell.

The bacteria responsible for the unpleasant odor will be held under control and well balanced with the help of this solution.
You can eliminate underarm odor by cleaning the whole body (armpits) with natural soap. Buy natural handmade soap from goat’s milk if you do not want to make your own soap (castile soap).
Most of you use baking soda to get rid of odors in your laundry or fridge, so why don’t you use to eliminate underarm odor too. This substance is natural and gentle. Mix equal amounts of baking soda and cornstarch. Apply it directly onto your dry underarms to prevent sweating as well as bad odor. Use this remedy when you need protection for several hours.
Apart from being used for numerous things, this powerful substance is also helpful in elimination of this unpleasant odor. Opt for odorless alcohol, such as vodka, in order to prevent smelling on alcohol. Spray some alcohol under your arms and remove the odor and bacteria right away. Of course, use it before getting dressed.
This mineral can help you solve the problem with underarm odor before it even appears. Just wash the underarms with natural soaps and apply some talc afterwards. A regular re-application prevents bacteria from growing.
Tea Tree Oil
This gentle oil can solve many skin problems including underarm odor. Tree oil has been used as an antifungal and antibacterial agent for hundreds of years. Just mix some natural rosewater and few drops of tea tree oil, spray under the arms and get rid of underarm odor immediately.
An excellent way to eliminate underarm odor is to use hydrogen peroxide. Mix water or natural rose water with hydrogen peroxide and eliminate the odor on a natural and healthy way.
Lemon is the perfect fruit that will help you to eliminate odors around the house, but it will also help you eliminate underarm odor. Its effectiveness is due to the fact that it balances the skin Ph level. Simply put a slice of lemon under the arms, leave it for 15 min and enjoy all day long.
Just rub your armpit with wet piece of alum, you will eliminate the unpleasant odor immediately.
This is a very serious disease. Namely, ovarian cancer is mostly recognized as the “silent killer” and affects a surprisingly high number of females. According to many scientists in the United States, douching, which is practiced by many women who think it makes them feel cleaner, could be really dangerous.
Douching is the practice of squirting water into your vagina. According to one study, 29% of 232 women admitted that they regularly apply this practice, and 57% of them said they never did it. According to many researches, douching is tightly linked with cervical cancer, reduced fertility, fungal infections.
This practice can cause serious health problems. Women often do not experience any symptoms of ovarian cancer until the disease progresses to the last stage. The link between ovarian cancer and douching is even stronger now that the scientists have only studied women who did not have cancer genes in the family.
Game Of Thrones actor, Neil Fingleton has died at the age of 36.
Neil Fingleton was once named as Britain’s tallest man.
According to The Guardian UK, the 7’7″ star played Mag The Mighty in the fantasy series and also took on roles in X-Men: First Class and Jupiter Ascending.
According to reports, he passed away following heart failure on Saturday.
A statement posted on the Tall Persons Club group Facebook page on Sunday read: “Sadly it has come to our attention that Neil Fingleton Britain’s Tallest man passed away on Saturday.
“Neil became Britain’s Tallest man in 2007 passing the height of Chris Greener. Neil started off in basketball in the USA before becoming a actor and starring in the X-men first class and also recently in the Game of Thrones.
“Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family.”
Born in Durham, Mr Fingleton was awarded a basketball scholarship in the US, playing in a number of teams there and in Spain before returning to the UK to focus on his acting career.
In an interview with the Guinness World Records in 2006, he said he came from a tall family.

As we chop up an onion, it releases enzymes that act as catalysts for us weeping over your kitchen counter.
When these molecules are released they form a type of acid which then reacts with the air – the resulting gas hits your eye, reacting with the water there to create sulphuric acid, which burns.
This leads to more tears as your eyes tries to get rid of the stinging.
How can you chop and onion without crying?
There are a few tips and tricks you can employ to prevent sobbing your eyes out every time you need to cook up an onion-filled dish.
1. Light a candle
The idea is that the flame will get rid of some of the fumes which cause the gas.
Without them, you shouldn’t have as much of a problem.
2. Freeze it first
You need to pop the onion in the freezer about 15 minutes before you want to chop it.
The cold is supposed to stop it releasing the molecules which cause all the problems.
Slicing an onion in water works too, again because it stops the vapour hitting your eyes.
3. Soak it
Popping an onion in water once it’s peeled but not cut also helps.
It apparently draws out the compounds, meaning there aren’t as many to react with your eyes.
4. Use a spoon
Pop a spoon in your mouth while you cut your onion and you won’t cry.
It works because the chemicals bind to the metal of the spoon before they can get to your eyes, so you don’t cry.
5. Get chewing
Some people suggest putting a bit of bread in your mouth, with part of it hanging out.
This is supposed to catch some of the chemicals before they reach your eyes.
Chewing gum also helps as it makes you breathe through your mouth, which disperses the irritants more. That means less get to your eyes, so you won’t cry.

What chemical in onions makes your eyes burn?
The exact chemical that makes our eyes burn so much when we chop up onions is syn-propanethial-S-oxide.
This volatile sulphur compound wafts towards your eyes where it then forms sulphuric acid.
The sulphuric acid then causes that dreaded burning sensation and resulting tears.

The source added that after the robbers failed to get hold on the bag of money, they rushed into their get away car which parked few meters away from the scene of crime.
