USAfrica: President Jonathan’s critics are unfair, expect too much. By Benjamin Aduba

He did not become his own man until May 29, 2011. Therefore, Jonathan has been a president for just 8 months no matter what his critics write and say. Jonathan did not have a national constituency or following. He did not espouse any set of galvanizing agenda. He came from Baylesa, a riverine state which, in the estimation of some, is merely required to provide oil, but otherwise to keep quiet.

2010 World Cup qualifying’s top players; Ronaldo missing

Current FIFA World Player of the Year, Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, is not on the list, and Portugal is in grave danger of missing the World Cup. Across the Atlantic, Lionel Messi of Argentina, considered by many to be the best soccer player in the world, also has missed the list, as his side has slipped from contention. Also, it’s no coincidence that all of the players on this list are on successful squads. Cesar’s Brazil, Lampard’s and Rooney’s England, Villa’s and Joan Capdevila’s Spain and Andre Ooijer’s and Joris Mathijsen’s Dutch teams have all already qualified for South Africa. Bocanegra’s U.S. side is currently in first place in the CONCACAF region. Bastian Schweinsteiger’s German team is atop Group Four in Europe, followed closely by Konstantin Zyryanov’s Russian side.

Olympics Basketball 2012: star-packed USA clashes with Nigeria

The U.S has LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony etc while Nigeria holds some NBA talents including Al-Farouq Aminu of the Hornets. Regardless of the stars all over the American team, no one should under-estimate the resolve of the Nigerian team. A key member of the team Ike Diogu, a former top-10 NBA draft pick cautions that "We will not be intimidated by those guys…. A lot of us went to school in the U.S. and have played against those guys. We have no reason to feel overwhelmed." Unless a basketball miracle occurs, USAfrica analysts say the U.S team holds the advantage for victory. By Chido Nwangwu

Rio de Janeiro wins bid for 2016 Olympic Games..

'Hosting the Olympic Games should not be a privilege for rich countries,' Lula said recently in New York. In that sentence, the Brazilian synthesized all his shrewdness, in the effort to help Rio de Janeiro get past Chicago - as well as Madrid and Tokyo - in the race to host the 2016 Olympics. The world's tenth-largest economy, Brazil is not a poor country, although it is inhabited by legions of poor people. But playing the 'third world' card still pays off at an IOC in which anti-US feelings are rife even in the 'Obama era.'
