  1. If you like reading about the young prodigy children and get inspired by their stories, then you will appreciate the article about the youngest professor in the world. Who is this person? When did she achieve her title of the youngest professor? You will receive all the answers to these questions in the following piece. THE YOUNGEST PROFESSOR IN THE WHOLE WORLD: WHO IS SHE? This woman made history when she became a professor at only 19 years old. Currently, she is 29 and still works in the sphere that she loves the most – which is science. The name of the youngest professor in the world is Alia Sabur, and she is American. She can definitely be included in the never-ending list of the inspiring women who prove that everything is possible. Alia Sabur was born on the 22nd of February 1989, in New York City, in the family of Mohammed and Julie Sabur. Her father was Pakistani, and her mother was an American reporter. When Alia was only eight months old, she started reading the words. When she was two, she read the book “Charlotte’s Web”. Of course, her parents suspected that their daughter is not like everyone else. However, Alia was the only child in the family, so they did not have anyone to compare her to and realize that she is a gifted girl. As the teacher who tested her once said, her abilities went beyond the IQ scale. She quickly became the brightest pre-school student in Northport, New York. At the age of five, she was done with her primary-school classes and moved on to the middle school. When Alia was seven years old, she went to high school to take classes there, and teachers just could not keep up with her abilities. However, she was still socializing with her peers. At nine years old, the administration of Alia’s school said that she had to attend high school and study together with sixteen-year-olds. According to Alia, she did not want to go there, because she did not like the older children teasing her for her outstanding brains. Sometimes she was called a know-it-all, and some children even went as far as grabbing her homework. Alia’s parents tried to find another school for their exceptional daughter. In the end, the State University of New York (Stony Brook) accepted her, with a note that she can try their program if she really thinks she will manage it. However, her mother had to accompany her to every class. So, at the age of only ten, Alia Sabur went for the undergraduate degree – she studied applied mathematics. At first, the young girl was afraid of how she would do. However, she was also really excited because she had the opportunity to attend physics classes at the university. As Alia would later remember, the majority of teachers were really nice to her, but there were a few who did not like her. There was a professor who told her that she was not as good as the guys, even if she did better than them. Still, the fellow students were very supportive of Alia, and her parents made her hang out with people her age because they did not want her to be unsociable. Except for school, Alia was amazingly talented in other spheres since she was young. For instance, when she was 9, she received the black belt in Taekwondo. Apart from that, she professionally learned to play the clarinet. When Alia was only 14, she graduated with the “summa сum laude” status, and broke the record, becoming the youngest student in the history of the United States to do so. However, Alia was a huge perfectionist and was not going to rest after her great achievement. She wanted to conquer new heights. So, she moved on to greater things when she went to study at the Drexel University for her Master degree. Her course was successful, and at the age of 17, when most people are in high school, she completed her Master’s degree and went on to study for the Ph.D. However, this was the time when Alia’s illusions about the world of science have shattered into pieces. She saw the poor conducting, along with realizing that many professors are not motivated by their passion for science. Alia had a fallout with the advisor who was also a supervisor of her Ph.D. Unhappy with the advisor stealing her ideas and applying for patents and grants using them, Alia sued Drexel University. The advisor, however, denied the accusations and threw them back at Alia. Even though Drexel University has admitted that the young genius did not plagiarize from someone else, they still refused to give her a Ph.D. The academic prodigy has been expecting to receive the Ph.D., so this was a shock to her. As Alia mentioned, this was the first time that she was unable to achieve her goal, so she went through a rough period, but eventually, she promised herself that she is not going to give up her dreams because of one bad luck situation. Nevertheless, in 2008 she has applied for the program in South Korea, which allowed her to receive a place of professor in this country. She had to teach students the discipline “Advanced Technology Fusion”. This opportunity was given to her by Seoul’s Konkuk University. At the time, she was a little under 19 years old. This made Alia Sabur the youngest professor in the entire world. The Guinness World Records has officially documented her historical achievement. Alia said that in South Korea everyone treated her as some kind of celebrity. When she walked around the campus, people were staring at her. She was often invited to give the inspirational speeches for young students. As much as Alia loved teaching in South Korea, she still missed home, and she did not renew the contract with Konkuk University when it expired. In 2009, she returned to New York to be with her family and friends. This woman was always in search of new knowledge. In 2010, she enrolled in the law school, hoping to become a lawyer and protect the rights of people. Alia mentioned that being 21 years old at the time, for once in her life she was of the same age as the fellow students. The same year, she appeared on the American news with her innovational idea, which was later considered as a possible option in helping to alleviate the oil spill of Deepwater Horizon, which happened in the Gulf of Mexico. Alia Sabur says that a person always has room to grow, and this is the life principle that she follows. She noticed that people like her, who did a lot of things at the early stage in their life, are often treated special just because of their age. Nonetheless, when you grow up, the fascination subsides, and you find yourself to be just a regular person. Alia is not letting her status of world’s youngest professor get to her and make her self-conceived. She puts all of her efforts into working hard on her personality and skills and learning something new that will help her in life. Nowadays, Alia Sabur is just doing the things she likes, without putting pressure on herself and achieving some set goals. She gives speeches at different universities and the summits. She advises young people to follow their dreams and figure out where their heart belongs to, to take every new opportunity, and to stop feeling like they are failing the expectations that the others lay on them. She works as an attorney, and her specialization is intellectual property. She is only 29 years old, and she knows that there is plenty of time ahead of her, that she can spend on useful things. As for now, she spares herself from all the rush that she got as a child and teenager, and lives for herself. This was the inspirational story of the amazing woman Alia Sabur, who was born with incredible talent and later solidified it with her hard work and persistence. She holds a record as the youngest professor in the world, and she fully deserves the acknowledgment that she has received. Alia’s example proved us that there is nothing impossible in the world.
  2. A bomb blast killed at least five spectators during a football match in southern Somalia, police and a lawmaker said on Friday, the first time an explosion has targeted a stadium. The blast went off in the port town of Barawe, in the Lower Shabelle region, when residents were watching a football match on Thursday afternoon, police said, adding that al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab could be behind the attack. Police said it appeared to have been detonated by remote control. “The bomb killed five people and injured a dozen others in the football field. “All the casualties were from the onlookers,” Mahad Dhoore, a lawmaker for South West state told Reuters. Police officer Mohamed Aden said al Shabaab group was suspected of being behind the attack and put the number of dead at four and wounded at 12. “We believe al Shabaab was behind (it) and that the target was officials who were not seated there at the time of the match. “The bomb looked like a remotely controlled one that was planted there,” Aden told Reuters from Barawe. Al Shabaab is fighting to topple Somalia’s Western-backed central government and establish their own rule based on their strict interpretation of Islamic law. The group frequently carries out bombings and gun attacks in the capital Mogadishu and other parts of Somalia. “Al Shabaab carried out an explosion that killed teenagers who were just playing football in Barawe town. Al Shabaab is the only enemy we have,” President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed said during a farewell party for Somalia’s outgoing parliament speaker.
  3. The National Population Commission has put Nigeria’s current population at 198 million people with urban population growing at an average annual growth rate of about 6.5 percent. Chairman of NPC, Mr. Eze Duruiheoma, stated this in New York while delivering Nigeria’s statement on Sustainable Cities, Human Mobility and International Migration at the 51st Session of Commission on Population and Development. Duruiheoma said, “Nigeria remains the most populous in Africa, the seventh globally with an estimated population of over 198 million. “The recent World Population Prospects predicts that by 2050, Nigeria will become the third most populated country in the world. “Over the last 50 years, Nigeria’s urban population has grown at an average annual growth rate of more than 6.5 percent without a commensurate increase in social amenities and infrastructure. “It grew substantially from 17.3 in 1967 to 49.4 percent in 2017. In addition, the 2014 World Urbanisation Prospects report, predicts that by 2050, most of the population – 70 percent – will be residing in cities. “The 2010 human mobility Survey report revealed that 23 percent of the sampled population were of more females than males”. He said the category of the population mostly engaged in urbanization and migration were young people of teenage and adolescents’ girls and boys, women of childbearing age and the working age population. He said existing urbanization trend coupled with internally displaced persons in cities, pose critical challenges to securing the sustainability of our cities, including efforts to make them smart and responsive to the human influx. “The Displacement Tracking Matrix round XXI of January 2018 identified estimated 1.7 million IDPs in over 321,580 households across six states of North-East Nigeria with 40 percent residing in camp-like settings in urban areas plus 1.4 million returnees. “The number of IDPs represented 4.5 percent increase compared to the 1,702,680 identified in Round XX (December 2017).” Duruiheoma said like in other developing countries, Nigerian cities hosted widespread poverty, under-employment, and unemployment at an average of 18.4 percent, according to the National Bureau of Statistics 2017 report. The NPC boss bemoaned the insecurity and inadequate and inequitable health care services for adolescents and women of childbearing age. “Nigeria continues to commit to solving the challenges of insurgents in the Northeast, which has induced a high number of internally displaced persons. “We acknowledge that women, children and particularly the girl child are often the most vulnerable in these displacements, and in this regard, we remain focused on the well-being of these vulnerable parts of our population. “We are committed to providing adequate health care services, reducing maternal mortality, rebuilding safe schools and empowering our women, ensuring no one is left behind in terms of achieving sustainable development.” Duruiheoma said these challenges adversely impacted on the quality of life and standards of living of the urban populace. According to him, Nigeria stays committed to the twin goals of the Habitat Agenda – adequate shelter for all and the development of sustainable human settlements in an urbanizing world.
  4. Etim ‘Maradona’ Esin has opened up on the many controversies that dogged his once-promising career – from going into drugs after he did not make the 1994 World Cup to the RApe case that forced him to flee Belgium. The former Nigeria international said on a radio station interview today that he did everything to make the 1994 World Cup. “I got many people, MKO Abiola, (Augustus) Aikhomu to get Westerhof to pick me, but he said no because he didn’t pick the squad,” Esin said. “Keshi, may his soul rest in peace, picked the team and he had beef with me, so I was out. “If I had made the squad, I would have been captain.” He also revealed his failure to feature at Nigeria’s World Cup debut in 1994 forced him into drugs. He blamed youth exuberance and naivety for the R@pe case which bagged him a suspended sentence in Belgium. “The girl looked like 18, but she was 16. I accepted I had an affair with her,” he said. “I was too young and naïve.” However, he was also philosophical about what he has had to battle. “I’m lucky to be alive,” he said. “God had a purpose to slow me down, (that may be why) I didn’t fulfill my potentials.” He plans to put out an autobiography of his rather colorful, short-lived career before the World Cup in Russia.
  5. Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, is to sign a one-year extension to his contract worth £20million. The deal would make him the world’s best-paid manager and keep him at The Etihad until 2020. Guardiola’s current contract expires next summer, but he said to be keen to stay and build on this impressive season, with City close to winning the Premier League. According to the Mirror, the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager held a meeting with City owner Sheikh Mansour and chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak in Abu Dhabi last month. City was in the Middle East for four days of warm weather training and it was there where he reportedly agreed to extend his stay. Guardiola took charge of City in the summer of 2016.
  6. After Cristiano Ronaldo scored a stunning over-head kick against Juventus, the Turin supporters gave him an unusual standing ovation. The Real Madrid talisman had been booed by the home fans following his third-minute strike in the Champions League quarter final first leg.
  7. TOP 5 MOST UNDERRATED PLAYERS IN THE WORLD THE FOOTBALL WORLD TODAY IS FILLED WITH UNSUNG HEROES WHO DO THEIR JOB DILIGENTLY AND EFFECTIVELY BUT GO UNDER THE RADAR BECAUSE THEIR STYLE OF PLAY ISN’T FLAMBOYANT ENOUGH TO GET THE REQUIRED ACCOLADES. Football has evolved in such a way that only the players who scores the highest number of goals and has the most flamboyant style of play get recognized and celebrated unlike the good old days when you are appreciated for what you offer( a defender gets recognition not for the number of goals or assists he has but for the ones he stops from entering). The maiden FIPRO World Eleven(2005) is a perfect example of getting the accolade for doing what you do best with Ronaldinho and Kaka being the only flair players on the list. Football is a team game and it shouldn’t be just all about who the media chooses to decorate and appreciate but it should be based on all round consistent performance and commitment. This thought made me put out a list of some players who deserve more recognition than they are getting 5. KEYLOR NAVAS (REAL MADRID) POSITION: GK In the summer of 2015, Real Madrid tried to exchange Keylor Navas for David De Gea with the deal failing to implement on the deadline day. Ever since then, Real has been linked with top goalkeepers showing their dissatisfaction in having him as the club’s no1. The Costa Rican no 1 won the 2015/16 UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid setting a record by not conceding a single goal in his first 8 appearances. He also usurped Edwin van der Sar to reach the second spot in clean sheets behind Jens Lehmann in the all-time list. He was the most consistent keeper in the 2015/16 season conceding only 3 goals in 11 appearances, keeping 9 clean sheets. He has won 1 La Liga, 1 Copa Del Rey, 2 Champions League, 2 Super cup, and 3 world club cup for Real by making important and World class saves. 4. CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN (TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR) POSITION: AMF The brain that makes Tottenham Hotspur tick. Everything sensational that comes out of Spurs style of play goes through the Danish man. The attacking midfielder is the Danish all-time record goalscorer in the EPL and has also been in the mix for the highest assist in the English premier league for 3 seasons running. The only accolade Eriksen has gotten is being named Tottenham player of the year twice and winning the Danish player of the year 3 times consecutively (becoming the 1st player to do so). The former Ajax man deserves the same plaudits the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Toni Kroos, Luca Modric, Iniesta and the rest receive after all stats don’t lie. 3. ROMELU LUKAKU (MANCHESTER UNITED) POSITION: ST This name I know will surprise most people because all the Belgian striker have been getting since his big-money move to Manchester United is condemnation for not just being good enough. The 24-year-old ex Chelsea player has scored 25 goals in 44 games for Manchester United in his maiden season and across his senior career, he has scored 170 goals in 370 appearances. Lukaku is also Belgium all-time leading scorer with 31 goals but he isn’t yet regarded as a world-class striker. The only thing lacking for Lukaku is the trophies but his commitment and quality cannot be denied. England striker Harry Kane is getting the plaudits for scoring goals with no trophies to show, why is Lukaku not getting the same. 2. CESAR AZPILICUETA (CHELSEA) POSITION: DF If Azpilicueta was fortunate enough to have started his career in the early 2000s, he would have comfortably been the World Best right back at some point. The Spanish international is one of the most versatile and hardworking player in the modern football having played across all the position on the pitch with the goalkeeping position as the only exception. He has over 200 club appearances for Chelsea winning the EPL titles on two occasions and playing every single minute enroute to the 2016/2017 triumph. His only accolade came when he was given Chelsea players’ Player of the year in the 2013/2014 season. 1. SERGIO BUSQUETS (BARCELONA) POSITION: DMF A Barcelona player not getting the necessary recognition his performances deserve is what no one would have seen coming but the sad truth is Sergio B ain’t getting it. There is this saying amongst Barcelona fans “that no Messi no Party” but most fans seems to forget if Busquets is absent for the show, it becomes less commanding. The 29 year old Spaniard might not be as explosive as the likes of Messi, Iniesta and Xavi(before he retired) making assists and scoring but the one thing he does is give them solidity. He is major player in the Barcelona team of 2009 when they swept the football world with the Tiki Taka style of play. Sergio B goes by doing his work unnoticed and efficiently and without hi, the Barcelona team look very vulnerable and seeing that the only individual accolade he has is making the UEFA Euro team of the tournament in 2012 is appalling. NOTABLE MENTIONS: Moussa Dembele, Marcos Alonso, Ivan Rakitic, Toby Alderweireld, Giorgio Chiellini, Hugo Iloris, Douglas Costa, Thomas Muller, Dries Mertens, Son Heung-min, Nacho Monreal, Sami Khedira, Olivier Giroud, Nemanja Matic, Roberto Firmino.
  8. It was a busy weekend in the world of sports as events took center stage in various tournaments across the globe. New records were set in the world of boxing and football as matches were won and lost but the events also had new facts that emerged. The Frenchman scored from the penalty spot to register a goal in his landmark game for the 12-time European Champions. 6. Dani Alves 36th career trophy The Brazilian international was involved in Paris Saint-Germain’s win over Monaco in the French Cup final as Alves won his 36th trophy in his footballing career. The 35-year-old is now the most successful footballer in history winning trophies with Sevilla, Barcelona, Juventus, PSG and the Brazilian national team in his colorful career.
  9. Manchester United midfielder Tosin Kehinde appears to have chosen to represent the Nigeria national team. The 19-year-old was born in the Nigerian city of Lagos but is eligible to play for England. However, Kehinde was photographed shaking hands with Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr ahead of their London friendly with Serbia on Tuesday night. Kehinde is eager to play for Nigeria ahead of England. Tosin met with the first vice president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Shehu Dikko, alongside his parents before meeting with coach Rohr. Rated by many as one of the talented kids in the U23s of the English Premier League giants, he presented an Ashley Young jersey to Dikko in the meeting attended by his parents. Rohr is in the London for Tuesday’s international friendly against Serbia at the Hive Stadium. The German is seeking to make it two out of two in this international window, after the Eagles beat Poland 1-0 last Friday in Wraclow.
  10. ISIS fanatics have targeted Lionel Messi in their latest propaganda poster promoting terror attacks at the Russia World Cup this summer. The photoshopped image shows the Barcelona and Argentina star on his knees wearing an orange Guantanamo Bay-style jumpsuit, often seen worn by victims in the terrorists’ execution videos. Messi is depicted on his knees inside Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium – venue for the World Cup final – with a masked jihadi to his left and the threat ‘so strike them upon the necks and strike from them every fingertips’ emblazoned above them. The official logo for the tournament has been altered to make it look like the world cup and the number eight in 2018 has been damaged. Sticks of dynamite can also be seen resting up against the halfway-line flag in the picture as the jihadi holds Messi’s hair with one hand and gestures with his other hand. It’s not the first time the five-time world footballer of the year has been targeted by ISIS. In October another poster emerged showing the Barcelona star behind bars in an attempt by terror fanatics to spread fear ahead of the the tournament in Russia. It came after another chilling poster showed a terrorist armed with a gun and explosives near a football stadium in Russia along with the words: ‘I swear that the Mujahideen’s fire will burn you… just you wait’. According to SITE, which monitors terror activity, pro-ISIS group the Wafa’ Media Foundation, published the World Cup warning in the wake of another recent threat.
  11. Barcelona star has hinted this may be his last chance at the World Cup tourney if Argentina win it or not. The Barcelona forward lost in three straight finals — two Copa Americas and the 2014 World Cup — in a three-year span and has not won a trophy with the senior team. Messi’s hat trick at Ecuador in the Albiceleste’s 3-1 win in their final qualifier in October earned his country a spot in this summer’s World Cup and again underlined the player’s importance to his national side. “It’s just the feeling that this group of players has. It seems that having reached three straight finals didn’t mean anything. Obviously, we depend on results and unfortunately, we reached three finals and we didn’t win them. “A lot was said about us. The criticisms hurt back then. But the demand is going to be there for this group to get it done. We think that if we don’t do it, we are going to get a lot more [criticism] and we are not going to have another possibility
  12. Former Chelsea and Brazilian International Oscar have declared his lack of interest in going to the World Cup, stating his preference for playing in China. He said “I don’t care if I go to the World Cup or no, I’m only criticized for coming to China, I personally think of my family, and my future. I don’t want to get poor when I am old and live on memories that I played in the World Cup.” He currently plays for Shanghai SIPG in China.
