10 Simple Ways to Sleep Better at night

If you do everything right each night—you know, going to bed early and avoiding drinking—your body's internal clock should wake you up at the same time every morning. For the rest of us, here are ten simple ways to a better night's sleep.

1. Power down electronics
The first thing to do is to turn off the computer (once you've finished reading this, of course) and all of your tech toys, including the television. It's best to do this about one hour before retiring for the evening. Too much light sends mixed signals to your sleep hormones (which kick in at about 9 or 10 P.M.) making it harder to fall asleep. Try reading a book or magazine, instead.

It was the first time a former French head of state has been held in police custody and is the latest blow to Sarkozy's hopes of a come-back after his 2012 election defeat by Socialist rival Francois Hollande. The conservative politician denies all wrongdoing in a string of investigations involving him.

Sarkozy arrived early on Tuesday to be quizzed by investigators at their offices in Nanterre, west of Paris, after his lawyer was also held for questioning on Monday.

Nigerian Army arrests Boko Haram intelligence agent

A terrorists’ intelligence cell headed by a businessman, who participated actively in the abduction of School Girls in Chibok, has been busted by troops, a statement by the Director, Defence Information, Major General Chris Olukolade said.  

The suspect Babuji Ya’ari, who is also a member of the Youth Vigilante Group popularly known as Civilian JTF, which he uses as cover while remaining an active terrorist, also spearheaded the murder of the Emir of Gwoza.  His main role in the group is to spy and gather information for the terrorists group.

“Babuji has been coordinating several deadly attacks in Maiduguri since 2011, including the daring attacks on Customs and military locations as well as the planting of IEDs in several locations in the town.

“The arrest of the businessman, who is known to deal in tricycles, has also yielded some vital information and facilitated the arrest of other members of the terrorists’ intelligence cell who are women.

“One of them, Hafsat Bako had earlier escaped to Gombe State to avoid suspicion but was tracked and arrested.  Prior to her arrest, Hafsat coordinated the payment of other operatives on the payroll of the group.  In her confession, she disclosed that a minimum of 10, 000 Naira is paid to each operative depending on the enormity of his task.

The statement further noted that “another female suspect named Haj Kaka, who doubles as an armourer and a spy for the terrorists group, has also been arrested.  Until their arrest, all the suspects actively operated a terrorists’ intelligence cell in collaboration with others still at large.

Meanwhile, troops deployed in Goniri, Yobe State, over the weekend, had an encounter with terrorists, resulting in casualties on both sides after the attack was successfully repelled.

FIFA charges Suarez for biting Italy's Chiellini, faces multi-match ban

Luiz Suarez has made history as the inaugural winner of the FIFA ‘Golden Tooth’ award. He has been charged by FIFA for biting Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini in the World Cup's Group D match on Tuesday.

FIFA said early Wednesday that its disciplinary committee has opened proceedings against the Uruguay forward. If the panel finds Suarez guilty of assaulting an opponent, FIFA rules call for a ban of at least two matches up to a maximum of 24 months.

Suarez, who has twice been suspended previously for biting, appeared to take a chomp at Italy's Giorgio Chiellini. 

Chiellini pled to the referee while showing his shoulder, and Suarez appeared to be holding his mouth in apparent pain. 

Suarez escaped any immediate punishment.

8 Things Everyone Should Know About Money

In today's world where the cost of living is rising astronomically and our income can barely take care of our name needs, in other words,"Your take home can't take you home." 

Here are eight basic tenets you should know in order to navigate today’s financial world: 

1. You have to earn more than you spend.
At the end of the day, you have to earn more than you’re spending in order to come out ahead. Sure, short-term loans and credit card debt can get you through a crunch period, but on average, you have to bring in more than you’re shelling out to stay solvent.

Sudan to release woman on death row for apostasy

27 years old Meriam Ibrahim, a Sudanese woman on death row for apostasy had her sentence canceled and was ordered released by a Khartoum court on Monday, the country's official news agency reported.

The Court of Cassation canceled the death sentence against her after defense lawyers presented their case. The court ordered her release.

Ibrahim, whose father was Muslim but who was raised by her Christian mother, was convicted of apostasy for marrying a Christian. Sudan's penal code criminalizes the conversion of Muslims to other religions, a crime punishable by death. Ibrahim married a Christian man from southern Sudan in a church ceremony in 2011. As in many Muslim nations, Muslim women in Sudan are prohibited from marrying non-Muslims, though Muslim men can marry outside their faith.

Referee in USA - Portugal grants first ever World Cup water break

In the 39th minute of the USA's clash with Portugal in Manaus, midfielder Jermaine Jones limped off to get some medical attention for his tattooed knee. Referee Nestor Pitana appeared to use the break in play to call a discretionary water break — the first time this has ever happened at a World Cup.

Due to the heat and humidity at several venues in this tournament, officials are permitted to grant one short hydration break in each half.

Furthermore, a Brazilian judge has ordered mandatory water breaks every 30 minutes if the temperature reaches and exceeds 90 Fahrenheit. 

According to the FIFA website, the temperature in the Amazonian stadium for this group G clash reached 86 Fahrenheit, with 66% humidity.

Despite similar temperatures during England's clash with Italy in Manaus last weekend, no water break was given. This lack of respite clearly had its effect on players — Andrea Pirlo was reduced from his normal walking pace to a slightly slower walking pace.

Watch Van Persie's Amazing Super Header again Spain. Spain 1 vs 5 Netherland


That might be the best header I've ever seen. Up until this points, the Netherlands had been seriously struggling. Spain scored the first goal, and deservedly so, and then were keeping possession pretty easily. But just before halftime, the Netherlands found a way to strike back, taking advantage of some pretty terrible defending by Spain.

And as great as the header is, the pass isn't bad either. Daley Blind, take a bow.

Brazil vs. Croatia: Final score 3-1 in 2014 World Cup Opener

If opening games are anything to go by, then we could be in for a cracker of a World Cup. 

The hosts went behind after seven minutes when Marcelo turned a cross into his own net - a goal which was met with stunned silence by the crowd before Neymar answered with a first-half equalizer, and a dive in the box from striker Fred led to the go-ahead goal in the second half on a Neymar penalty kick.

Oscar then added some security in extra time, and Brazil is back on track at the head of Group A.

It could have been worse for Brazil when Neymar clashed with Croatia midfielder Luka Modric, but referee Yuichi Nishimura only produced a yellow card.

In the end, it was a narrow victory for Brazil, but one they'll hope to build on if they can shrug off some of the immense pressure they're under. It was significant before, and despite the win, it may now get worse given the manner of their victory.
