Prince George Alexander Louis: Kate and William reveal royal baby's name

via theGuardian


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have announced their newborn son is to be called George Alexander Louis. He will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.
The announcement at 6.20pm showed the couple have chosen to stick with very traditional royal names. There have already been six British monarchs called George – the last being the Queen's father, George VI. Louis is also a favourite and was the name of Lord Mountbatten, the uncle of the Duke of Edinburgh.
The announcement comes a day after the duchess left hospital and two days after she gave birth, and hours after the Queen met her great-grandson for the first time.
George was the most popular name with betting firms William Hill, Coral and Paddy Power. James was also a favourite with punters, with Alexander, Henry, Louis, Richard and Arthur the next most popular choices.
It was widely expected that William and Kate would not wander far from convention and select anything too outlandish for a prince who is likely to reign one day and whose name could symbolise an era.
The naming has happened quickly by historical royal standards. Prince George's father was not named for a week, and it took a month for the name of the baby's paternal grandfather, Prince Charles, to be announced.
Earlier, for the first time in more than a century, a reigning monarch met a great-grandchild born in direct succession to the crown when the Queen was introduced to Prince George.
She made the short journey from Buckingham Palace to Kensington Palace, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son had spent their first night at home as a new family.
Not since the birth in 1894 of the eldest son of the future George V and Queen Mary – the future Edward VIII, who later abdicated – in the twilight of Queen Victoria's reign has such an encounter occurred. Though Wednesday's meeting lasted just 30 minutes – before the start of the Queen's traditional summer break at Balmoral on Friday – it adds another footnote to royal history.

New Video: Bez - Say (Official)




This is a perfect way to come back to the music scene with a new single. Bez returns with the visuals to his new single, Say off his upcoming album which is almost complete.
The director of the video, Kemi Adetiba does an amazing job on this: the elaborate scenes in the video capture and transfer the essence and emotions of the actual scenes to you, and the twist in this ‘love vacation’ story was done so well, no one could have seen it coming.

Same-sex marriage becomes law in England and Wales

via BBC


Same-sex couples will be able to get married in England and Wales after new measures became law.

The government's controversial legislation on the issue received Royal Assent on Wednesday.
The Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat leaderships all backed the proposals, which were finally approved by MPs and peers earlier this week.
It is expected that the first gay and lesbian wedding ceremonies will take place by summer next year.
Under the terms of the the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill, religious organisations will have to "opt in" to offering weddings, with the Church of England and Church in Wales being banned in law from doing so.
Commons Speaker John Bercow announced the bill had received Royal Assent - the formal approval of the sovereign required for all legislation. The news was greeted with cheers in the Commons chamber.
'Bulldozed'
MPs decided not to oppose a number of minor changes agreed by the House of Lords and approved the legislation on Tuesday.
There will also be a review of whether groups such as the humanists will be allowed to carry out marriages, while ministers said they were prepared to look at eliminating any difference in the treatment of gay couples when it came to pension schemes.
During the Commons debate, Equalities Minister Maria Miller said the passing of the bill was "clear affirmation" that "respect for each and every person is paramount, regardless of age, religion, gender, ethnicity or sexuality", she added.
But Conservative MP Sir Gerald Howarth, one of the bill's opponents, said it was "astonishing that a bill for which there is absolutely no mandate, against which a majority of Conservatives voted, has been bulldozed through both Houses".
He added: "I think the government should think very carefully in future if they want the support of these benches. Offending large swathes of the Conservative Party is not a good way of going about it."
But Paul Parker, recording clerk for Quakers in Britain, said: "It's wonderful to see same-sex marriage achieve legal recognition. Quakers see the light of God in everyone so we respect the inherent worth of each individual and each loving relationship."

What a Joke: Nigerian clubs to be investigated for match-fixing after 79-0, 67-0 results



Four Nigerian football clubs have been suspended ahead of an investigation into match-fixing after a race for promotion led to a pair of ridiculous final-day scorelines.
Plateau United Feeders and Police Machine, two amateur sides chasing one spot in Nigeria’s Nationwide League Division 3 – the bottom tier of Nigeria’s professional leagues – needed to out-score the other to ensure they would be the ones turning pro.
However, the Nigerian FA quite understandably grew suspicious of Plateau’s 79-0 win over Akurba FC and Machine’s 67-0 thumping of Babayaro FC.
Making matters fishier, Plateau-Akurba were reportedly 7-0 at half-time while Machine-Babayaro were 6-0 at the interval.
Both winning sides began the tournament with 2-0 wins, before holding each other to a 0-0 stalemate. This meant that if both clubs won their final games, it would come down to goal difference.
But despite Plateau’s second-half goal-rate averaging at an alarming goal every 40 seconds and technically placing them top, all four clubs will instead face disciplinary action.
The NFF called the scores from Monday's tournament in the northeastern city of Bauchi "a mind-boggling show of shame".
"This is a scandal of huge proportions," NFF vice president Mike Umeh said.
"The four teams involved are suspended immediately and indefinitely, pending further sanctions. We will investigate this matter thoroughly and get to the bottom of it."
"The teams involved, their players and officials, match officials, (tournament) coordinator and anyone found to have played some role in this despicable matter (will) be severely dealt with," NFF director of competitions Mohammed Sanusi added.

(Nigeria) Mayhem Breaks In Rivers Assembly As Amaechi Escapes Attempted Murder


Mayhem broke out during a session in the Rivers State House of Assembly on Tuesday morning when hoodlums broke into the House and attempted to seize the mace.
The group also assaulted the Speaker of the House, Hon. Otelema Amachree. 5 members of the House led by Hon Evans Bipi had moved to impeach the Speaker.
Commissioner for Information, Ibim Semenitari, in a telephone interview with Channels Television revealed that commotion started when Mr Bipi walked up to the speaker and started ‘slapping’ him as members were still exchanging pleasantries.
“While that was going on, they didn’t know that some hoodlums had accessed the assembly. The governor (Rotimi Amaechi) was informed and therefore left the government house to go and ensure that people were protected
As the governor got there, some people began to shout ‘shoot him’ ‘shoot him’
They were standing in the gallery. These were policemen who are paid by tax payers
When somebody tried to rush to attack the governor, people had to protect the governor” she disclosed.
The leader of the house was injured and rushed to the Government House clinic for treatment.

Egypt crisis: Interim president to be sworn in after Morsi ousted


The top judge of Egypt's Constitutional Court, Adli Mansour, is to be sworn in as interim leader, hours after the army ousted President Mohammed Morsi and put him under house arrest.
Army chief Gen Abdul Fattah al-Sisi announced the move on Wednesday, in what Mr Morsi said was a military coup.
Gen Sisi said Mr Morsi, Egypt's first freely elected leader, had "failed to meet the demands of the people".
The move comes after days of mass rallies against the Islamist president.
Protesters accused him and the Muslim Brotherhood of pursuing an Islamist agenda for the country and of failing to tackle Egypt's economic problems.
The BBC's Kevin Connolly in Cairo says the president had appeared to protesters to be economically out of his depth, and had not given them the reassurances they wanted that he could address rampant poverty.
Some 50 people have died since the latest unrest began on Sunday.
