We’re all born with an expiration date, and there’s nothing we can do about it — though there are many things we can do to buy ourselves more time. Lifestyle choices, along with environmental factors, can lead to an early death.

English Version: Official Transcript of the meeting between Muhammadu Buhari and Chancellor Angela Merkel

Chancellor Merkel: Dear Mr. Muhammadu Buhari! I am pleased to welcome you to Berlin today, after we met at the G7 summit in Elmau and I was in Nigeria a few years ago.

Just a few days ago, the German-Nigerian bi-national commission in Abuja, to which our Federal Foreign Minister had travelled, had also met as an expression of our close cooperation. We will continue the cooperation in the context of the G20 Summit, which will take place in Germany next year, and will return to what we have already emphasized in the context of G7, namely cooperation in the field of health and, of course, cooperation in the fight Against terrorism.

Love Letter to First Lady, Mitchelle Obama By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie:

She had rhythm, a flow and swerve, hands slicing air, body weight moving from foot to foot, a beautiful rhythm. In anything else but a black American body, it would have been contrived. The three-quarter sleeves of her teal dress announced its appropriateness, as did her matching brooch. But the cut of the dress scorned any “future first lady” stuffiness; it hung easy on her, as effortless as her animation. And a brooch, Old World style accessory, yes, but hers was big and ebulliently shaped and perched center on her chest. Michelle Obama was speaking.
