No fewer than 44 residential buildings and markets have been razed by fire in Anambra between December 2017 and April 2018, the State Director of Fire Services, Mr Martin Agbili, said yesterday in Akwa.

According to him, the fire outbreaks had remained a big challenge in the state.

He identified the major cause of fire in the state as bush burning and careless handling of inflammable substances such as petrol in residential buildings.

The fire service boss explained that accessibility to scenes of fire was also a big problem because of the way houses and markets were constructed.

“In many cases when there is fire outbreak in the markets and residential areas, vehicular movement are often hindered because our people do not observe stipulated code while constructing houses or markets,’’ Agbili said.

He lauded his officials for their prompt response to distress calls and urged residents to always alert his office in the event of fire.

The director also urged members of the public to observe fire safety measures to minimize such disasters.

Agbili indicated that his office intended to partner with the State Ministry of Physical Planning to enforce fire service rules for those erecting buildings.

“We are targeting to ensure that every new building must observe fire safety rules by providing fire alarm and fire hose rail,” he said.

In addition, he said buildings, including residential, were expected to have smoke detectors, sprinklers as well as create easy access.

Agbili advised landlords to insist that their tenants should purchase fire extinguisher, especially Co2 fire extinguisher.

He urged users of domestic gas in the homes to always open their windows and wait for at least 20 minutes while coming into the house before using it.

The director also urged members of the public to report cases of gas refilling stations located in inappropriate places

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, is likely to declare his intention to contest the 2019 presidency in June.

Atiku had in December formally returned to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, from the All Progressives Congress.

A close associate of the PDP chieftain told Vanguard that the formal declaration slated in the third week of June, will hold in Abuja.

While noting that Atiku has been impressed with the outcome of his ongoing nationwide consultation, he added that a formal declaration would officially kickstart his campaign.

He said: “Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, will declare his intention to run for the office of the President in the second or third week of next month (June) having gone round the country with his message of salvation for a nation at cross road.

“Leaders of thought and national statesmen are behind him but it is too early in the day to speak on what he is bringing to the table.

“He was at the Chatham House in April and that led to the postponement of the big event (the declaration).

“You will agree with me that he needs a nod of approval of the delegates first and I can say without mincing words that the Wazirin Adamawa is more than prepared to make himself available for credible, free and fair primaries where the party will pick its Presidential candidate.”

Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has tasked leaders in the country to rise to the challenge of ending the senseless killings of Nigerians.

The Vice President gave the charge on Wednesday at a leadership and stakeholders’ meeting in Lafia, the Nasrawa State capital as part of his assessment visit over the recent security challenges in the state.

He recalled several killings resulting from farmers and herdsmen crisis in the region since 2006, noting that hundreds of innocent lives had already been lost this year alone and that the killings must stop.

He said the responsibility of finding solutions to the problems rested on the leaders, adding that there was no need to shift blames or point accusing fingers.

“It is very important we recognize that the place of leadership is so critical in the resolution of all the problems of this state and of our our nation.

“Leadership loses relevance where there is no peace and the people are running all over the place and are unable to find security.

“You and I are responsible before God, there is no leader or any religion that will promote the killing of other people and that is why it is the responsibility of all of us as leaders to ensure that no life is lost whether that life is Tiv, Fulani, or whatever that life may be.

“God has placed us in positions of leadership so that we would protect lives, and they do not have to be lives of those who speak the same language with us or belong our religion or tribe.

“God established us as leaders because He believes that we are responsible enough not to allow a situation where people will be killed and we look the other way because they did not belong to our tribe, our religion or not agree with us.

“He has given us a role which goes beyond that of the common man. Leadership is a God given duty and we must do what God expects of us.

“On the part of government, it is our business to provide security. We have deployed special forces and we intend to do more in all the states where we have had these crisis.

“Mr President, just about two days ago, was reviewing the position in both Benue and Nasarawa states, especially the special forces that have been deployed to ensure the crisis comes to an end, ” he said.

He said the federal government in collaboration with the state government with the view to providing the necessary facilities that would ensure that farmers and herdsmen live in relative peace.

“We have been talking at the National Economic Council about what to do, especially about providing ranches, earth dams in grazing areas and ensuring that there is adequate provision for cattle to prevent a situation where these crisis continue. We must search for practical solutions,” Osinbajo added.

Napoli president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, has confirmed that Maurizio Sarri will be leaving the club.

De Laurentiis was frustrated with Sarri’s refusal to sign a new deal, amid speculation linking him with a move to Chelsea.

“He brought joy and prestige to Naples and Napoli fans all over the world with an entertaining brand of football that drew praise from all quarters. Well done, Maurizio. Aurelio De Laurentiis,” the Napoli president tweeted.

Sarri’s exit leaves him free to move to the former Premier League champions.

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has spoken on the rumour flying about that he was set to dump the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

The Governor vowed not to leave the party which he claimed to be one of its founders in the state.

Okorocha, who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo in a press release, said when he took the mainstream of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, to join the merger that gave birth to APC, he was not under any pressure to do so.

The Governor said that he became the propeller of APC in the state and the whole of South East by mobilising people for the party in Imo, and other South East states.

The statement read, “If Governor Okorocha did not take a good percentage of APGA members to APC, the party would not have had the kind of national spread it has today.

“For that reason, they called him all sorts of derogatory names which Nigerians know, including Alhaji in Government House, Okoro-Hausa and Rochas Buhari.

“When APC came for campaign in 2015, in Imo and all the states in the South East, he was the point man.

“Today, APC has become the party to envy. Nobody is talking about Okorocha and Buhari going to use APC to Islamise the Igbo.

“Today, the same people who called him names have begun to market falsehood against him, including the fake story of his leaving APC for APGA. All these show the level of frustration on the side of the 10-man coalition. They are being hunted by their inglorious actions.

“One may also wish to know that while the unfounded story of the governor leaving APC is yet to dry, they have also come up with another one, that the governor is in coma.

“These people do not know God and, of course, they are afraid of both the present and the future.

“No landlord leaves his house for unfaithful tenants. The name Okorocha is the fibre of APC in Imo and the whole of South East.

“And anybody who says it is not true should tell Nigerians why it is only in Imo you have APC governor, 24 out of the 27 House of Assembly members, three House of Representatives members and one senator, in the whole of South East. Time will tell what happens in APC in Imo and the whole of South East.”

The outbreak, which was first spotted near the town of Bikoro, about 100 km (60 miles) south of the city, is believed to have killed at least 27 people so far.

Gadado tendered his resignation letter yesterday, a development confirmed by some of his aides to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN.

The Deputy Governor’s Special Assistant on Communication Matters, Yakubu Adamu, said his principal sent his resignation to the Governor, through the Office of the Secretary to the State Government.

“In this regard, I feel sure that, Your Excellency will readily recollect the most recent one-on-one discussion we had, precisely, on Thursday, April 19th, 2018, in your office, where, among other issues, I expressed to you, my contemplation to ‘step aside’, if need be, in order to free my conscience.

“I regret to say that it has become necessary to yield to that inner calling, and may this development be in accordance with the blessed will and guidance of Allah (SWT), Ameen.”

Also, a blood relation to the Deputy Governor, Sufiyanu Gidado, and his Special Assistant on Domestic Affairs, confirmed the development in a telephone interview with NAN on Wednesday.

Napoli have confirmed the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti as the club’s new manager.

Ancelotti held talks with Napoli’s president Aurelio De Laurentiis in Rome last week before replacing Mauricio Sarri, whose departure was confirmed on Wednesday.

The 58-year-old Italian has been out of management since he was sacked by Bayern Munich in September 2017, while his last job in Italian football was with AC Milan, who he left in 2009 to become Chelsea manager.

Sky Sports News understands Ancelotti, who signed a three-year deal with the Serie A runners-up, turned down several other offers including the Italy national team job to take control at Napoli.

Sarri, meanwhile, is considering an offer from Russian club Zenit St Petersburg, according to Sky in Italy.

He was visited by club officials last week and during a meeting, they presented him with a deal to succeed Roberto Mancini, who left the club to become Italy boss earlier this month.

De Laurentiis took to Twitter on Wednesday evening to show his appreciation for Sarri’s work at the Stadio San Paolo over the last three seasons.

He said: “I would like to thank Maurizio Sarri for his precious dedication to Calcio Napoli, which has made it possible to give prestige and emotions to the city and to the blue fans all over the world, creating a model of play admired everywhere and by anyone. Bravo Maurizio.”

Napoli have twice finished as runners-up to Juventus in the past three seasons under Sarri, who according to newspaper reports is also in the frame for the Chelsea manager’s job should Antonio Conte leave Stamford Bridge this summer.

Unai Emery says a return to the Champions League is crucial for Arsenal as he begins work as the new head coach at the Emirates.

The Spaniard was announced as Arsene Wenger’s successor at the Emirates on Wednesday following Arsene Wenger’s departure after 22 years at the club.

“Our objective is to be among the best teams in Europe, to win titles and to be in the elite of European teams,” he said.

“I also want the team to make the fans proud. I know they are already and I want them to be even more so.

“I believe in the players who are here. The objective is to work hard together.

“That is very important for the club after two years outside the Champions League to work in this way. To be the best club, the best team in the Premier League and also in the world.”

An 18-year-old admission seeker (name withheld) on Wednesday narrated to an Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court how her father used blackmail to have unlawful sexual intercourse with her since she was 12-years-old.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that her father, 52-year-old Folorunso Oluwaseun was arraigned on Feb. 8, on a two-count charge of defilement and sexual assault.

The teenager, the first prosecution witness, told the court that the sexual abuse spanned four years (2012 to 2016) before she was removed from Oluwaseun’s care by her mother.

She revealed that Oluwaseun blackmailed her by refusing to give her and her younger siblings aged five and two years food unless she gave in to his incestuous demands.

While being led in evidence by Mr Babajide Boye, the State Prosecutor, she said: “When the abuse occurred, I was living with my father and four siblings at Ofin in Ikorodu and my mother was staying in Ibadan.

“When it happened, I told my immediate younger sister and she said it is a curse in the Bible, I told my father and he told me it is not a curse that God knows he doesn’t have a wife and God won’t count it as sin.

“I allowed him to continue but my sister said it was not good and I told him I can’t allow him continue and he told me that he would not give us food unless I allowed him to continue.

“He refused to give us food and my young brothers aged five and two were very hungry so my sister said I should allow him to continue so he will give us food since he said it is not a sin and I allowed him continue.

“I decided to tell his sister, Mummy Tosin and she promised to talk to him.

“He approached me asking why I told his sister after he has told me it isn’t a sin and that it is only if he has sexual intercourse with me that he will have money to take care of us,” she said.

The teenager, in her evidence gave an insight into how her family handled her allegations of incest against her father.

“In 2013, my mother came back home but left after about a month.

“He stopped when she was around and started again when she left, I didn’t tell my mother because my father said I should not tell her.

“We usually go to the camp of the Apostolic Church every year and my father told me that his sister reported him to his mother and his mother told him not to get me pregnant.

“I told my sister and, she said our father’s family doesn’t like us at all.

“Around August 2016, my mother came back home and one night he searched for me wanting to sleep with me again.

“When my mother caught him, she started shouting but he shouted back at her saying what can she do to him.

“My mother took all of us to Ibadan saying if she stayed after knowing about the acts my dad can kill her,” she said.

The teenager said that her father’s blackmail continued when the family moved to Ibadan.

“I was teaching in a small school in Ibadan and we used to call him to send us money but he will say until we come back to Ikorodu.

“I didn’t want to go back so I went to the proprietress of the school asking for salary increment and I told her everything I went through in the hands of my father,” she said.

The witness said through the influence of the school proprietress, she was able to report her father to the appropriate authorities leading to his arrest.

The teenager’s mother (name withheld), while giving evidence as the second prosecution witness said she separated from Oluwaseun after he accused her of witchcraft.

“I moved to Ibadan where I began selling raw food stuff and sending gifts to my sister to give my children occasionally because their father refused me direct access to them.

“I was unaware of everything that happened to my daughter as she never confided in me until I caught her father in the act.

“I left with my children after he refused to accept responsibility or show any form of repentance for his actions.

“I feared he will kill me in a bid to cover up the secret,” the mother said.

According to the prosecution, the offences contravene sections 137 and 263 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2011.

Justice Sybil Nwaka adjourned the case until June 21 for continuation of trial.

Following his recent appointment, Unai Emery has reportedly penned down names of some of the players he wants to bring to Arsenal.

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery has reportedly revealed three signings he want to make after succeeding Arsene Wenger. Arsenal confirmed Emery as their manager this morning with statements from the Spaniard, Stan Kroenke and Ivan Gazidis.

The 46-year-old takes over from Wenger knowing the Gunners squad is in dire need of an overhaul following two turbulent Premier League campaigns.

And the Mirror say Emery has handed Arsenal a three-man wishlist as he aims to steer them to the title at the first time of asking.

Top of his list is Bayer Leverkusen star Bernd Leno.

Arsenal have recently dismissed talk of a Petr Cech exit by giving the veteran the No 1 shirt.

However, despite that, Emery wants Leno, who could leave with just two years left on his current deal.

Borussia Dortmund ace Sokratis Papastathopoulos is also on his radar.

With Shkodran Mustafi primed to be shown the door, and Laurent Koscielny injured, the Greece international’s signing may be accelerated.

And the Mirror name Jean Michael Seri as Emery’s final target.

The Ivory Coast international has blossomed for Nice in Ligue 1 and can be signed by activating his £35million clause in his contract.

Emery wanted the player while at PSG.

And, with regards to Arsenal, he is determined to succeed where he failed before.

A former Liverpool star, Ian Rush has reiterated that Mohamed Salah should be recognized in Europe over his outstanding performance so far.

Ian Rush says he will bow down to Mohamed Salah should the Egyptian break his Liverpool goals record for a single season in the Champions League final.

Salah enters Saturday’s showdown against Real Madrid with 44 goals this season, three short of Rush’s record from the 1983-84 campaign when Liverpool won the European Cup, First Division and League Cup treble.

It might seem a tall order for Salah to set a new mark, but Rush, now a club ambassador at his beloved Liverpool, has made a promise to him ahead of the Kiev final.

“If he beats my record I would actually bow down to him,” Rush told Press Association Sport.

“To score four goals in a final would be an incredible achievement.

“Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez were amazing in their first seasons at Liverpool.

“But I have to say Salah’s been even better than them, not only his goals and assists but his all-round game.

“What I like about him is that he’s such a humble guy, if someone’s in a better position he passes the ball.”

Salah became the most expensive player in Liverpool history last summer when he joined from Roma in an initial £37million deal, although January signing Virgil van Dijk has since taken the record.

But the 25-year-old has shown that he is worth every penny and more, with 11 of his goals coming in the club’s march to the Champions League final.

And Rush has echoed those who believe Salah should be crowned world player of the year if Liverpool become European champions.

“The two best players in the world over a long time, without doubt, are Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi,” Rush said.

“But over the last season Salah has been the best player.

“He played a huge role in helping Egypt to the World Cup and what he’s achieved at Liverpool has been amazing.

“I don’t want to take anything away from Ronaldo or Messi, but he’s done it in the hardest league in the world.

“If Liverpool win the Champions League he deserves the best player award, 100 per cent.”

Rush will be in Kiev as Liverpool seek to win European football’s biggest prize for the sixth time.

And Rush, Liverpool’s record scorer with 346 goals, believes it will be a high scoring affair.

“It is an end to the season that probably most did not expect,” he said.

“But why can’t we win it now that we are in the final?

“Madrid are not the force they used to be, although, saying that, when they need to up their game they do.

“There’s got to be goals in it with two such attacking teams, and hopefully these Liverpool players can become legends.”

France midfielder Adrien Rabiot has refused to be named on the national team’s standby list for the World Cup.

The 23-year-old Paris St-Germain player was not in the final 23-man squad but among the 11 reserve players.

Reports in France say Rabiot, capped six times, had emailed coach Didier Deschamps saying he would not “be able to follow the training programme”.

Noel le Graet, president of the France Football Federation, said Rabiot’s reaction “was very surprising”.

He added in a statement: “Rabiot is a high-quality player and an endearing boy who has always behaved well in national selections where he has evolved.

“His disappointment does not allow him to give up and not to serve the France team. To be part of the collective of France, to be among the best French players, is a chance and a privilege in the career of a player.

“He made a bad decision. He penalises himself and sanctions himself alone.”

Rabiot made 45 appearances in all competitions for PSG in 2017-18, winning a domestic treble.

France are in World Cup Group C alongside Australia, Peru and Denmark.

Muji

China fined Japanese retailer Muji $31,280 for describing Taiwan as a country. Taiwan was listed as the "country of origin" on the packaging for 119 clothes hangers last year. Marriott, Zara, and numerous airlines have been targeted in Beijing's crusade to have Taiwan labeled as a province of China.

  • China fined the Japanese retailer Muji $31,280 for describing Taiwan as a country.
  • Taiwan was listed as the "country of origin" on the packaging for 119 clothes hangers last year.
  • This is the most serious action from China in the country's escalating war of words over how Taiwan is officially recognized. Beijing considers it to be a province of China, not an independent country.
  • So far this year, China has ordered Marriott to shut its website for a week for listing Taiwan as a country, and a number of airlines have kowtowed to China's description of Taiwan.


China fined iconic Japanese retailer Muji over $30,000 for describing Taiwan as a country on its packaging.

The Shanghai Administration for Industry and Commerce fined the minimalist retailer 200,000 yuan ($31,280) for listing Taiwan as the "country of origin" on 119 clothes hangers it imported in August last year.

In describing Taiwan as a country, Muji broke the advertising law because its actions were "detrimental to the country’s dignity or interests."

“The party did not properly fulfill their inspection obligations which lead to the above-mentioned goods to enter the market to be sold,” the administration said in a statement released in March but reported on this week.

This appears to be the most serious case in China's increasing sensitivity over how foreign companies describe Taiwan.

Taiwan is a self-ruled, democratic island that Beijing considers to be a province of China that will eventually be fully reunified — by force, if necessary. China frequently seeks to assert its claim to Taiwan on the global stage.

So far this year, hotel chain Marriott was forced to shut down the Chinese version of its website for a week, and the fast-fashion retailer Zara was ordered to complete a “self-inspection” and turn in a rectification report when the companies’ websites listed certain areas, including Taiwan, as countries.

The issue gained attention at the highest levels of Washington when, last month, it emerged that China's Civil Aviation Administration sent a letter to 36 foreign airlines demanding they stop referencing Taiwan as a country. Despite the White House calling the demands "Orwellian nonsense" a number of airlines, including Malaysian Airlines and Air Canada, have since made changes to their sites.

Delta Air Lines, Lufthansa, and British Airways also stopped listing Taiwan as a country after similar complaints from China earlier this year.

But Muji was actually one of the first foreign companies to be targeted in October last year.

The company drew the ire of China's National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation for publishing what it deemed to be an incorrect map of China in a store catalog. The map left off the Japanese-controlled Senkaku Islands which both Beijing and Taipei make claims to.

At the time Muji took "appropriate measures" and destroyed the catalogue. Muji has also changed its packaging on the hangers.

In January, China also began destroying imports that said "Made in Taiwan" rather than "Taiwan Area" or "Chinese Taiwan," reportedly costing some food businesses in Taiwan hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Earlier this week, several reports in the local media reported on the alleged arrest and detainment of an 18-month-old baby at Adidome in the Volta region.

The baby was reported to have attempted to poison her uncle’s son, who is five years old.

The story caused great shock among Ghanaians, with many taking to social media to wonder how a girl of that age could conceive such a plan, let alone execute it.

However, responding to the issue, the Ghana Police Service has denied reports that the law enforcement agency has detained an 18-month-old baby.

In a press statement, the Police said their information shows that on 26 March 2018, one Kuma Lawrencia of Adidome came to the station with her 14-year-old daughter and reported an assault case against Judith Yevuyibor, mother of an 18-month-old girl, for having assaulted the 14-year-old girl.

The multiple award-winning undercover journalist has been behind a number of exposés which pointed to the pervasive corruption being perpetrated in certain sectors in the country.

Celebrated investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has built a reputation of using all sorts of smart ways to expose corrupt persons in the country.

The multiple award-winning undercover journalist has been behind a number of exposés which pointed to the pervasive corruption being perpetrated in certain sectors in the country.

His upcoming exposé titled “Number 12” – scheduled to be premiered on June 6 – reportedly captures corrupt acts by some high-ranking politicians and persons in the football fraternity.

Although the video is yet to be shown to the public, President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Kwesi Nyantakyi, has already been implicated, following an order by President Akufo-Addo to have him investigated for allegedly defrauding by false pretense.

The intriguing nature of the whole issue beings to mind some of Anas’ previous mind-boggling exposés which uncovered rots in the country.

Pulse.com.gh takes a look at the top five corruption scandals in Ghana that were exposed by Anas:

1. The judiciary scandal

 

In 2015, Anas Armeyaw Anas exposed the corrupt practices of some judges following a two-year investigation into the judiciary.

About 32 judges were implicated for various acts of corruption, in a scandal that brought huge shock among Ghanaians.

In the said video, some court judges and magistrates were captured taking bribes in the form of money, goats and other inducements to influence their ruling on cases.

This exposé had a far-reaching effect on the nation, with most of the implicated judges being suspended whiles others were also dismissed outright.

 

2. Passport office scandal

 

A lot had been said about the rot going on at the various passport offices in the country, however, it was Anas who finally brought out hardcore evidence to prove these allegations.

The Tiger Eye PI leader went undercover and posed as a businessman who wanted to have a passport. Upon numerous dealings with authorities at the passport offices, he discovered that some serious corruption was being perpetrated.

This exposé implicated officials who were offering Ghanaian passports to non-citizens in exchange for an amount of money. This led to the introduction of the biometric system.

 

3. Corruption in the Police Service

 

Uncovering the rots in the Ghana Police Service was Anas’ first major investigative assignment when he decided to venture into full-time journalism.

Having heard stories of bribery and corruption in the Police, he decided to have a firsthand look at how the system was really working. Anas posed as a street hawker who was selling Nkatie Burger and hit the highway to sell.

The motive behind this investigation was to uncover why Police officers allowed hawkers to sell at unauthorized places despite it being against the law.

Lo and behold, it was discovered that the Police officers on the highway were taking bribes from the unlicensed traders to allow them to operate.

 

4. Corruption on Ghana-Cote d’Ivoire border

 

Anas’ exposé on the corruption being perpetrated on the Ghana-Cote d’Ivoire border is one that ranks among his most intriguing pieces.

This exposé is regarded as one of Anas’ very best not just because of the rot he uncovered, but also due to the tactful methods he used in outsmarting the officers at the border.

Anas posed as a rock stationed at the border and managed to secretly film the smuggling of cocoa beans out of the country.

He was also able to spy on trucks moving to Cote d’Ivoire and how some Ghanaian officers were aiding in the smuggling of the cocoa.

 

5. Corruption at Tema ports

 

Posing as a policeman, Anas took his investigative skills to Ghana’s Tema ports, where he uncovered the corrupt practices of some custom officers.

Anas captured the untoward and crooked deals that were being perpetrated at the ports, with custom officers taking monies from people in exchange for helping them smuggle goods.

This exposé had a far-reaching effect, as government was able to recover over $200 million which was being lost through smuggling at the ports.

Accra-based Citi FM reports that the suspect, Wisdom Akude, 27, was earlier seen wandering on the field before the attack.

After hacking down the pupil, the suspect tried to flee the scene but was apprehended and handed over to the police.

The victim bled profusely after the attack and finally gave up the ghost upon arrival at the St Margarete Marquant Catholic Hospital, where she was sent for treatment.

Sleeping in on the weekends could help you live longer

Researchers at Stockholm University discovered that adults who logged up to five hours of sleep every night increased their risk of mortality.

Sleeping in on Saturday has long been chastised by sleep experts and moms alike - but a new study says the habit could lower your risk of death. 

Researchers at Stockholm University discovered that adults who logged up to five hours of sleep every night increased their risk of mortality.

However, when people who only slept five hours a night during the week compensated by snoozing nine hours a night on the weekends, their risk of death did not increase.

ALSO READ: Reasons you should have more of it

To conduct the study - which was published in the Journal of Sleep Research -scientists looked at data on sleep habits collected from more than 43,000 people under 65 years old.

Then, they studied death records taken 13 years after the initial data was obtained to determine if and how sleep habits impacted mortality.

Of course, other factors like education, body mass index, and smoking can take years off your life, so they accounted for those, too. Their conclusion? "Long weekend sleep may compensate for short weekday sleep."

So, what does this mean for you?

The study's findings might come as a surprise, since sleep experts have previously advised against trying to "catch up on sleep" on the weekend. Last year, sleep scientist Matthew Walker told NPR that sleep is not like a bank.

"You can't accumulate a debt and pay it off at a later point in time. If I were to deprive you of sleep an entire night, and then in a subsequent night give you all the sleep you want, you never get back all that you've lost," he said. 

This new study changes that way of thinking.

"The results imply that short (weekday) sleep is not a risk factor for mortality if it is combined with a medium or long weekend sleep," the study authors wrote. "This suggests that short weekday sleep may be compensated for during the weekend, and that this has implications for mortality."

Of course, getting enough sleep every night is still ideal: The team found that people who slept six or seven hours consistently didn't heighten their risk of mortality. 

But hitting the hay early isn't always easy. If you have trouble getting to bed, practicing meditation has been found to lower anxiety and make you feel more relaxed. Or, try one of these other six tips, like downing a glass of milk at night, to fall asleep fast.

donald trump car

President Donald Trump is considering an investigation that could eventually lead to tariffs on imported cars and other automobiles according to a new report. The move would be a major increase in the president's trade battles.

  • President Donald Trump is considering an investigation that could end in tariffs on imported cars.
  • The tariffs would be imposed through a Section 232 investigation, similar to the steel and aluminum tariffs imposed earlier this year.
  • Earlier, Trump tweeted "big news coming soon for our great American Autoworkers."
  • Economists worry that increased trade protections, like tariffs, could spark trade wars and harm the US economy.

President Donald Trump is considering applying tariffs on imported cars, according to a new report.

The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that the Trump administration is considering a plan to impose the tariffs by undergoing an investigation through Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act.

Section 232 allows the president to impose trade restrictions on national security grounds. It is the same method Trump used earlier this year to slap a 25% tariff on imported steel and a 10% tariff on imported aluminum. Any tariffs would after a Commerce Department investigation.

Trump administration officials have begun to discuss the possibility of auto tariffs with industry executives, according to the Journal, and the tariffs could be as high as 25%. It is unclear if the new tariffs would focus on certain countries or all imported vehicles.

The Washington Post's David Lynch and Josh Dawsey also reported that the annoucement of a Section 232 investigation could be a ploy by the Trump adminstration to pressure Mexico into accepting new rules on auto imports in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) renegotiation.

The US wants to increase the percentage of a car that must be made in one of the NAFTA countries — the US, Mexico, and Canada — in order for the vehicle not to be subject to a duty when it corsses into another member country. Mexico is resisting the change, creating a major impasse.

By threatening a tariff on all imported cars, Mexico could be pressured into the tightening of the rules.

In a tweet Wednesday, Trump teased "big news coming soon for our great American Autoworkers."

"I think your autoworkers and your auto companies in this country are going to be very happy with what's going to happen," Trump told reporters when asked about the tweet later in the day. "You'll be seeing very soon what I'm talking about."

The president previously threatened to levy new tariffs on European cars if the European Union did not lower barriers on American products.

"If the E.U. wants to further increase their already massive tariffs and barriers on U.S. companies doing business there, we will simply apply a Tax on their Cars which freely pour into the U.S.," Trump tweeted in March. "They make it impossible for our cars (and more) to sell there. Big trade imbalance!"

Trade experts have warned that the use of Section 232 opens the door to possible retaliation from other countries and violates international trade rules.

In addition, new tariffs would likely escalate Trump's recent trade battles. Economists say the president's aggressive trade actions could trigger a global trade war, which in turn would cost the US jobs and possibly trigger a US recession.
