3 Fashion Rules Every Generation Should Live By

It’s Not What You Wear, It’s How You Wear It

My mom always told me, “It doesn’t matter if your clothes are expensive or designer, if you wear them well you’ll be the best dressed in the room.” I hear her advice in the back of my head every time I go shopping and always choose pieces that fit my body type, that I feel confident in, and that work with my individual style. Fall is my absolute favorite time of year, so I pay close attention to what I buy for the season. When it comes to sweaters, I’m all about comfort with a bit of structure – the best of both worlds.

It’s OK to Treat Yourself

Saving up for something special every once in a while is a lesson I learned from my grandmother. As a 20-something living in New York, budgeting is always on my mind, but I make a “splurge” purchase at the beginning of a new season. I love investing in of-the-moment shoes, like a gorgeous pair of suede booties for Fall. Don’t hold back if something special catches your eye. If you fall in love immediately, chances are you’ll get a ton of good use out of it.

Curate Your Wardrobe

One thing I focus on is having a perfectly coordinated closet, which is due in part to my Type A personality. The more synergy you see when you open those doors, the easier it will be to put together polished outfits. While this is true, I definitely don’t shy away from standout pieces. I live for hunting down treasures like a printed scarf vest, but I always take a moment to think about how these items will fit in with the rest of my wardrobe.

3 Alleged ISIS Members Arrested In Germany

Three Syrian nationals suspected of being ISIS members were arrested Tuesday in Germany, and are being investigated in connection with November’s deadly terror attacks in Paris, authorities said.

Information gathered so far seems to indicate that the three — arrested Tuesday morning in the northern state of Schleswig-Holstein by special police forces — were brought to Europe by the same organization of smugglers that imported the Paris attackers, German Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere said in Berlin.
Their travel documents also appear to have originated from the same forger, de Maiziere said.
The three — two Syrian teenagers and one man in his 20s, identified as Mohamed A. — came to Germany in the middle of November 2015 via Turkey and Greece, the German Federal Prosecutor’s Office said.
Tuesday’s arrests come as European security officials hunt for people connected to those who killed at least 130 people in gunfire and suicide bombings at six locations in the Paris area on November 13.

NSCDC Arrest 3 With Human Head In Niger State


The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in Niger on Saturday paraded three suspects who were caught with a human head.

Mr Philip Ayuba, the Commandant of NSCDC in the state, told newsmen in Minna that the suspects were arrested in Mokwa Local Government Area of the state.

He said that the suspects aged 34, 35 and 24 hail from Ekpa village in Mokwa.

“I invited you here to see three suspects that we arrested on the ground of possession of a human head.

“After we arrested them, they confessed to us that they own the human head,’’ he said.

Ayuba said the suspects were arrested on Thursday while negotiating the sale of the head in Mokwa.

“Our personnel pretended to be bargaining with them on how much to pay before they were arrested,’’ he said.

The NSCDC boss said that the suspects had made confessional statements in writing, adding that they would be handed over to the police for further investigation and prosecution.

The principal suspect told journalists that his brother had invited him to his house to see the human head and assist in getting a buyer.

“I looked for a buyer for five months. So when I approached one Isah to buy the head he agreed and said that he has a buyer in Mokwa.

“When the buyer came we started negotiating the price with him and it was in that process that we were arrested,’’ he said.

Another suspect claimed that the head belonged to a decomposing female corpse which was found during a hunting expedition.

He said that he and another accomplice decided to cut off the head and sell it to make money.

“Two of us decided in the bush that we will sell the head to scientists and make money,’’ he said.

Troops Kill 22, Arrest 3 Boko Haram Commanders

The Nigerian Army yesterday warned members of the public to be extra vigilant as Boko Haram members are now fleeing from their enclave in the Sambisa forest to disperse into other parts of the country.
A statement yesterday by army spokesman Colonel Sani Usman said due to aerial bombardment and concerted efforts of ground troops, Boko Haram members had been deserting the forest in droves.

“Consequently it becomes necessary to inform the public, especially well meaning Nigerians, to be more vigilant and security conscious,” he said.
Usman said 22 Boko Haram members were killed and three commanders were arrested by Nigerian and Cameroonian troops in a joint clearance operation along the Nigeria-Cameroon border on Monday.
He said troops of the 152 and 155 Task Force Battalions at Operation Lafiya Dole in conjunction with troops of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) from Cameroon conducted a joint clearance operation which swept through 10 suspected Boko Haram hideouts along the border where they killed 22 terrorists, arrested three ameers and rescued abducted persons.
Usman said during the operation, the troops cleared Nbaga, Bula, Dabube, Ybiri, Greya and Suduwa towns and other adjoining settlements.
He said: “The apprehended terrorists’ commanders include; Lawal Abba, Mallam Hisna and Mallam Gana in Shatte, Bulla Jaja and Bula Burra towns.”
Usman said the troops also rescued 1,275 persons held hostage by the terrorists, adding that they were being screened by the 152 Taskforce Battalion pending onward movement to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Air Force yesterday said its fighter jets struck a Boko Haram logistics base at Kangarawa, Borno State.
A statement from Air Force spokesman Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa said the strike had taken off another logistics base of Boko Haram, thereby decimating their capabilities.
Famuyiwa said the scale of the accompanying inferno and multi explosions suggested that the location possibly housed a fuel or ammunition dump.

Teenager Impersonates Tinubu, Defrauds Three

Operatives of the State Intelligence and Investigation Bureau, SIIB, have arrested a 19-year-old undergraduate for impersonating Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The suspect, identified as Emmanuel Eto, was arrested while attempting to defraud a fourth victim in Lagos.

According to reports, about three weeks ago, the Commissioner of Police, Kayode Aderanti, received a complaint from a retired DIG, Alhaji Rahman Akao, that someone was impersonating a renowned senator on social media and defrauding unsuspecting victims.

He immediately directed the officer in charge of SIIB, SP Ameh Akpa Veronica, to investigate the case. Ameh Akpa Veronica led a team of detectives, who traced the suspect to Delta State, where he was apprehended.

Vanguard gathered that Eto, a National Diploma, ND, 2 student of Delta State Polytechnic, Oghara, created a Facebook account with the politician’s name, which he used to lure his victims with a job offer.

It was learned that he had defrauded three persons before he was arrested, while attempting to defraud the fourth victim.

The suspect said: “I am from Isoko South Local Government in Delta State. I did what I did because my father is late and my mother has been sick for a long while. “She has high blood pressure and has been in and out of hospital. She was recently discharged from the hospital.

“I ask my victims if they are interested in working in Nigerian National Oil Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, or any other blue chip company. They get carried away and I usually ask the victim to pay N26,850 into my bank account for application forms and processing fee.

“It was while I was attempting to defraud the fourth person that I was arrested.

“I am really disappointed in myself. I want my mother to know that I loved her so much that I went into fraud to enable me take care of her medical expense.”


Oil Prices Rise By 3%

Oil rose as much as three per cent on Tuesday as a weak dollar lifted commodities denominated in the currency and the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries raised slightly its forecast for world oil demand growth.

Violence in Yemen also boosted crude prices, raising concerns over the security of Middle East supplies.

The dollar fell on bond market gyrations, making oil and other commodities priced in the greenback more affordable to holders of the euro and other currencies, according to Reuters.

OPEC tweaked its 2015 world oil demand growth forecast to 1.18 million barrels per day, above a previous estimate of 1.17 million.
