FIFA Upholds FC Barcelona's Transfer Embargo

Barcelona will be unable to sign players until January 2016 once the current transfer window shuts, after world governing body Fifa rejected the club's appeal against a transfer ban.

The Spaniards were given the 14-month ban after being found to have breached rules on signing international players under the age of 18.

It was suspended after they appealed, allowing them to sign Luis Suarez.

Barcelona will now take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas).

The ban will start in the next transfer window, early next year, which means their summer acquisitions will be unaffected.

And the Catalan club could, if they wanted, sign more players before the current transfer window ends on 31 August.

In a statement, the club said it would "continue defending its interests before the highest sporting authority, in this case the Court of Arbitration for Sport".

Barcelona added that the punishment was an "affront to the spirit" of their "world renowned" academy La Masia, which is regarded as being the foundation of
the club's success in recent years.

Players are instilled with a philosophy of how the game should be played and many of the first team, such as Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez, have graduated from the academy which
is situated near the Nou Camp.

"FC Barcelona is to serve a transfer ban which will see the club prevented from registering any players at both national and international level for two complete and consecutive transfer periods," read a Fifa statement.

A 19 year old welder apprentice was caught yesterday August 19th after having sex with a chicken at the Continental area of Akure, the
Ondo state capital.

According to reports by Vanguard, the boy was discovered to have committed the act after the owner of the chicken, Mrs Stella Akintola, who is the boy's neighbor and reared chickens in the compound, heard her chickens making noise inside their pen and decided to go and find out why they were restless.

When she got to her hen pen, the young man surfaced from a corner and said he had stomach upset and was on his way out of the compound toilet. Mrs Akintola not suspecting
anything then moved to use the compound toilet where she discovered one of her chickens lying
dead in the toilet.

When she tried to raise an alarm, the young man quickly appealed to her not to shout confessing that he was responsible for the chickens death and promised to replace the
dead chicken. However when she examined the chicken with some of her neighbors, they discovered that the young man had actually had sex with the chicken until it died.

Man Rapes 7-Year-Old In Lagos And Damages Her Private Part

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a man, identified simply as Julius, for allegedly raping a seven-year-old girl (names withheld), damaging her private parts and distorting her urination.

PUNCH Metro learnt that 29-year-old Julius, who lived in a rented apartment on Obafalabi Street,
Ojodu Berger area of Lagos, allegedly tricked the little girl into his room on the night of Saturday, July 26, and had illegal carnal knowledge of her. The victim, a primary one pupil, was the daughter of Julius's co-tenant.

Julius, who hails from Benin, Edo State, was not married and lived in the apartment with his mother.

On the fateful evening, the victim's family, who were Muslims, had gone for prayer in a mosque and expected the child to come with them, but could not find her.

However, when the family returned, the girl was said to have sneaked out of the suspect's room, with obvious signs of pain.

Upon interrogation by her parents, the girl was said to have confessed that she was coming from Julius's room, where he allegedly asked her to remove her pants, while he climbed on her and raped her.

After the confession, the parents were said to have reported the incident at the Ojodu Abiodun Division and Julius was arrested.

When Punch visited Julius's apartment on Tuesday morning, the victim's mother, a northerner who hails from Kebbi State, said the
girl could not urinate properly after the incident, adding that she was being treated at a private hospital.

She said:

"On that evening, when we came back from the mosque, she could not bend down properly. I asked her where she went and she initially lied, but later said she had been in his room.

She said the man asked her to remove her pants, and he put his organ into her, stating that he was just playing with her. I then asked her to repeat the same to her daddy when he came back. But in the morning when we confronted Julius, he denied it.

Then we called our family nurse, who came, tested her, and confirmed that she had been raped.

That same day, we took her to a
private hospital where the doctor also confirmed that she had been raped the day before, and on several occasions. So, we reported at the police station. From that day,
I observed she could not hold her urine.

A girl who had stopped bedwetting suddenly began to urinate during sleep. The medical personnel said there was a damage to her private parts that needed to be treated.

That was how she resumed treatment at the hospital."

When Punch got to the hospital where the victim was being treated, her medical report, which was signed by a doctor, identified simply as Dr. Sanni, stated among other things that there was a breach of hymen and the absence of labia minora. One of the nurses, who craved anonymity, said the girl had been coming for treatment for about two weeks.

At the rented apartment, Julius's room was locked, while his mother staying with him could not be reached for comments as of the time of this report. Also, she could not be reached on the phone number supplied by the co-tenants.

The Lagos State Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Lelma Kolle, confirmed the arrest of the
suspect, and added that the case, because of its severity, had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba.

He said:

"The suspect was arrested by the Ojodu Abiodun Police Division in connection with the rape of a seven-year-old girl who had some wounds on her and could not urinate
properly. But the case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba for further investigation.

The suspect is presently being detained at the SCID."

American Journalist Missing Since 2012 Beheaded By ISIS

The missing American freelance photo-journalist James Wright Foley, 40, has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS on Tuesday - in a message to the United States to end its intervention in Iraq.

Foley has been missing since November 22, 2012, reporting from Syria.

ISIS posted extremely graphic pictures and video online entitled 'A Message to America' to social media as proof of their barbaric action.

The video opens with a black robe-clad figure standing over a kneeling Foley.

The member of the Islamic State claims that President Obama's authorization of air strikes against
the terror group places the US 'upon a slippery slope towards a new war front against Muslims.'

'Any attempt by you, Obama, to deny Muslims liberty & safety under the Islamic caliphate, will result in the bloodshed of your people,' the ISIS adds.

Foley speaks in the video and says 'I call on my friends, family members and loved ones to rise up
against my real killers, the U.S. government.'

The group which has claimed control of most of northern Iraq and parts of Syria is threatening to kill Time journalist Joel Sotloff next unless President Obama ceases attacks on the terror group.

Nigerian Man In London Holds Up Sign Board At Train Station, Advertising Himself For A Job

Rather than sit home and brood over his predicament after applying for over 300 jobs, a young Nigerian man decided to take a radical approach in his job hunting.

This morning Alfred Ajani, 22, decided to stand at the entrance to the busy station holding a sign stating: 'Marketing graduate (BA Hons 2:1 Coventry Uni) Ask for CV.'

Apart from the sign he held up, he decided to hand out CVs to company bosses commuting into the City of London through Waterloo Station
His direct approach received a warm response from commuters, with many stopping to discuss potential positions.

Alfred, who lives not far from the station, said: 'I graduated in May and have been applying for jobs ever since, but it's very difficult at
the moment.

'The only ones that have come up have not really been what I wanted, I'm interested in marketing and advertising.

I realised that there are thousands of students out there using the same old methods of applying for jobs online and through recruitment agencies and so I thought I'd try something different.

'I got up early and went to the station. At first people just looked at me but after about 10 minutes people starting stopping and talking.

They said they'd never seen anything like it before and were really impressed.

'One woman worked in advertising and took a CV and another guy ran back from his train and said he'd walked past but had started thinking and might have something for me.'

Alfred added: 'I've already had some phone calls and have got an interview booked for later today.

The support was great, one man
even bought me a cup of tea and told me "good luck".'

Alfred has worked as a waiter while studying and has taken positions as an intern in the music industry in a bid to boost his job prospects.

He asked friends to help him hand out his CVs, but thinks they were put off by the early start.

A photo of him giving his phone number to a passing commuter circulated on Twitter this morning, with website users offering their

After seeing the photo, one Twitter user wrote: 'Good on him for putting himself out there!!
Time waits for no man!! Love it!!'

Another added: 'It's a good idea. I would've hired him into my business straight away if I saw him.'

Olympic medallist Kelly Sotherton retweeted the photo, and motivational speaker Gavin Ingham
wrote: 'He will no doubt get interviews and offers whilst others sit at home moaning. Good on him.'
