Bling Bling Cavalierss

The new NBA season started yesterday October 25, and as is customary, the Cleveland Cavaliers got their championship rings for winning the title 3 months ago.

It was a great day for Cleveland fans everywhere as they finally watched a Championship banner go up at the Quicken Loans arena.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, joined by Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert and vice-chairmen Nate Forbes and Jeff Cohen, along with General Manager David Griffin, presented the Cavs players and coaches with their championship rings in a historic pre-game ceremony. This was the franchise’s first-ever NBA title and the first major sports championship in 52 years to the city of Cleveland.

The ring itself was magnificent, approximately 6.5 carats encrusted with over 400 diamonds plus a one carat diamond that adorns the top of the Larry O’Brien Trophy. Each ring is set in 10K white gold and 14K yellow gold and is the heaviest NBA Championship ring ever made.

Cavaliers

 

The phrase “WORLD CHAMPIONS” is proudly displayed along the top and bottom in 14K yellow gold. Each letter is framed in diamonds, using a total of 216 diamonds to represent Cleveland’s area code. In the center, the Cleveland Cavaliers “C” logo is made up of custom cut dark garnet that wraps around the coveted Larry O’Brien NBA trophy, also made in 14K yellow gold.

The black outline around the “C” represents the turning point in the NBA finals when the Cavs won three straight games after choosing to wear their black uniforms for Games 5 and 7. Fans wore black tee shirts for Game 6 because of league rule that calls for light uniforms for home games during the playoffs. A one carat diamond sits on top of the trophy to represent the team’s first-ever NBA championship.

On the right and left edges of the ring are 46 diamonds (23 per side) which represent the 46 years that the Cleveland Cavaliers organization has been in existence (1970-2016). The player numbers in 14K yellow gold with each player’s number on his own ring displayed in a banner that drops over the Cleveland skyline to symbolize the connectivity between the city and the team.

On the ring’s band is a line of seven gemstones which represent the seven games played in last year’s NBA Finals. With three white diamonds showing the three games the Golden State Warriors won and four genuine “wine-colored” stones representing the games the Cavaliers won.

It was really an emotional and spectacular event which would have been even better for Cavaliers fans as they watched the team defeat the New York Knicks to win their first game of the season.

Edo Election: Tribunal grants PDP leave to serve APC by substituted means

APC Edo governorship candidate, Godwin Obaseki and PDP candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu

The court processes are also to be served on Mr Godwin Obaseki, the governor-elect by substituted service.

The Edo Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, sitting in Benin has granted the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Young Democratic Party (YDP), leave to serve their petitions by substituted service on the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The court processes are also to be served on Mr Godwin Obaseki, the governor-elect by substituted service.

PDP and its governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie and YDP and its governorship candidate, Nurudeen Inwanfero, are challenging the outcome of the Sept. 28 Edo governorship election.

The petitioners in their separate petitions, named the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), APC and Obaseki as first, second and third respondents respectively.

Justice A. Badamasi is chairman of the three- member tribunal, with Justices E.A. Ade Sodun, and Khadi Adamu Usman  as members.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the tribunal had on Oct. 11, ordered INEC to allow PDP have unhindered access to all electoral materials used for the Sept. 28 governorship election.

The order followed an ex-parte motion filed by PDP counsel, Mr Kingsley Obamogie.

But on Wednesday, both Obamogie and Mr Ugo Nwofor, counsel to YDP, in separate ex-parte motions, alleged that APC and Obaseki were evading service of court’s processes from the balliff.

They requested the tribunal to grant them leave to serve the respondents by substituted service, by pasting all the court processes on the wall or doors of the last known addresses of the respondents.

The tribunal chairman who granted the prayer, said it was in compliance with Section 47 of the Electoral Act 2010 (as Amended).

INEC had declared Obaseki winner of the Sept. 28 governorship election having scored 319, 483 votes against Ize-Iyamu’s 253,173 votes.

Is “Doctor Strange” worth your time and money? Check out what the critics are saying about Marvel’s latest movie:

“A kaleidoscope of weirdness and innovative visual effects successfully introduce the newest Marvel superhero in director/co-writer Scott Derrickson’s brilliantly bizarre Doctor Strange.” – USA Today.

“The key is an in-on-the-joke script, which Derrickson co-wrote with Jon Spaihts and C. Robert Cargill, that ingeniously navigates major plot potholes even as it saddles its actors with ludicrous dialogue. But what actors!”Variety.

“An engaging, smartly cast and sporadically eye-popping addition to the studio’s bulging portfolio.”The Hollywood Reporter.

“If “Doctor Strange” can be dispiritingly safe, it can also be just as impressively bold – an hallucinogenic trip along a very familiar path, watching the film is like adding a large dose of LSD to your morning commute.”Indiwire.

“Doctor Strange is a movie very much built up of other movies yet it still manages to keep its own identity.”Digital Spy.

“The visuals are worth the price of admission, but this is as generic and by-the-numbers an origin story as the MCU has ever made. It’s better than ‘Green Lantern,’ but it will remind you of ‘Green Lantern’.” Forbes.

“It’s a tremendously engaging and likeable superhero ride, in which the classiest of casts show they know exactly where to take it seriously – and where to inject the fun.”Guardian.

“Doctor Strange is thrilling in the way a lot of other Marvel movies are. But what makes it unique is that it’s also heady in a way most Marvel movies don’t dare to be.”Entertainment Weekly.

“Happily, it’s [Marvel ‘s] most impressive visual film yet.”GQ Magazine.

“Director Scott Derrickson creates a cinematic experience straight from the comic books, an incredible feat that needs to be seen on the big screen.” – Independent UK.

“Thankfully, amid all the film’s wacky-trippy bending of space and time, [Cumberbatch] manages to steer an ideal path — taking the role seriously but allowing himself to be flummoxed by it, wittily traumatised and taken off-guard.” Daily Telegraph.

Roma Looking To Make Loan Bid For Memphis Depay

Roma have been linked with a move for Manchester United winger Memphis Depay, accordng to Calciomercato.it.

The report suggests the Serie A club will try to convince United to let the Dutchman leave Old Trafford on loan.

Wolfsburg have also been linked with a bid after their disastrous start to the Bundesliga campaign, but Italian media outlet Calciomercato claims Roma are leading the race for Depay’s signature.

Ex-Chelsea flop Mohamed Salah is set to depart for the African Cup of Nations in January, and Luciano Spalletti is desperate to land a short-term replacement.

Depay has the same agent as Roma’s Dutch stars Kevin Strootman and Thomas Vermaelen, and a loan deal is also United’s preference after they shelled out £25million on him in 2015.

Isaac Adewole: FG to distribute cervical cancer vaccine — Minister

Minister for Health, Isaac Adewole

Adewole said that cervical and breast cancers are some of the major diseases affecting women in the country.

The Federal Government says it will soon begin the distribution of cervical cancer vaccine to reduce the prevalence of the disease in Nigeria.

The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Tuesday.

Adewole said that cervical and breast cancers are some of the major diseases affecting women in the country.

“Fortunately we know what causes cervical cancer.

“There is now a vaccine to prevent cervical cancer and we are working to make the vaccine available.

“We are training more people for the detection of the cancer of the cervix, but much more importantly, in our 2017 budget we want to upgrade seven more centres for the treatment of cancer.

“I can tell today that there is no public hospital that has a functional cancer machine.’’

According to the minister, cervical cancer is caused by a virus and that by age 20 to 25 years of age, almost all women who have had sex before will have the cervical cancer virus.

He, however, added that in another three to four years, the immunity in some of the women would kill the virus.

“The few people that are unable to clear the virus in their system are the ones that are disposed to developing cancer in future,’’ he explained.

The minister, therefore, called for early diagnosis of cancer, saying that it could be prevented from developing when detected early enough.

Adewole, who said cancer is a cause for concern to the present administration, added that the government would revise the National Cancer Plan for effective response.

He said the ministry would constitute a National Cancer Steering Committee to be chaired by the minister of health.

He said government would upgrade the cancer treatment centres in Maiduguri, Zaria, Ilorin, and the National Hospital, Abuja.

Other centres include the ones in Ibadan, Benin, and Enugu.

He explained that the upgrade would be the first phase of the programme. 

“Top 3 Things I Will Fix Before Leaving Office” – Buhari

President Buhari has revealed some key things he will fix before leaving office. While speaking at a meeting with the director, Global Upstream of Shell Oil Company at the State house, Abuja, on Tuesday, October 25, he revealed these three key things.

1. Accountability

During the meeting President Buhari made it clear that his determination to return Nigeria to the “good old days of accountability” was still on track. He also said that he would make sure all public office holders in Nigeria are held accountable. This has been shown in his continued war against corruption. President Buhari gave the reason for his tough stance on corruption and accountability, saying: “It is only by doing this that investor morale and confidence will return, and the economy will be positioned on the path of growth.”

2. Niger Delta

As part of the meeting which included the Shell company’s concern with security of oil infrastructure in the Niger-Delta. the president urged them that militancy in the Niger Delta was another thing he would fix before he left office. He commended the Shell company for their continued faith in the Nigerian economy, giving them assurances on some issues of concern raised by the company. He then assured that his government would continue to prioritize security and also dialogue with the stakeholder-communities in the Niger Delta will continue. He also called for continued protection by the Nigerian Navy in view of repeated threats of attack by militants.

3. Electricity

Also, the president assured that the matter of epileptic power supply was one he had plans to fix before he left office. He said he would surely solve the country’s perennial electricity problem. This promise is in tandem with the statements he made in March 2016, when he said: “In the three years left for this administration we have given ourselves the target of ten thousand megawatts distributable power. In 2016 alone, we intend to add two thousand megawatts to the national grid.” Meanwhile, only yesterday, Monday, October 24, President Buhari met with governors who are members of the All Progressives Congress (APC). The meeting took place at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

He changed my story and wiped my midnight tears, Seyi Law writes as he shares photos of his daughter

Seyi Law and wife Stacy Ebere welcomed their first child on September 30th, after five years of marriage and 9 years together. The Comedian took to his Intagram hours ago to share cute photos of his daughter and wrote: 
When I think of the gift the Lord has placed in my hands,
The Joy that has continually flown in my heart,
Thoughts of the journey we will go together,
The imaginations my head can’t phantom,
And the victories we have gotten,
I count it all as undeserved blessings.
He picked me from the lowness of the Busstop,
He lifted me off the industry of insults,
He raised me above the wills of those that tried to raise others above me,
He brought me light when darkness around me prevailed,
And He gave me testimonies that hurt their soul.
He changed my story, wiped my midnight tears and gave me TIWALOLUWA OLUWADEMILADEOLA CHIDERA AVIELLA, a Princess of many nations to rule.
You can call me:
