This is the "angelic" face of a 12-year-old Jesus – according to Italian police.
Detectives used computer forensic techniques that have helped to catch mafia bosses to generate the image.
First, they created a photo-fit picture from the facial image in the Turin Shroud, which many believe to be that of Jesus. They then used a computer program to reverse the ageing process by reducing the jaw size, slimming the face and softening the eyes to arrive at the younger Christ.
Italian police use the same digital techniques, but in reverse, to create updated photo-fit images of

I woke up this morning with a very bad headache- already took drugs but seems like the headache was here to stay. I rose from my bed and took ice water from my fridge, at least thank God we have had constant electricity for the past three days. I wrapped the ice with towel and placed it on my forehead. OMG! The immediate relief I felt was like an orgasm. Just then my phone rang, I looked at the caller’s id it was Justin, oh! he has been such a sweetheart. We have been going out for almost one month and he has called me at least four times today since I informed him about the headache, he was the one that gave me the idea of using the ice block. The perks of dating a doctor I said to myself and smiled

Within my 8years in prison, I have witnessed over 100 deaths of Nigerian citizen in the Ghana prison and most of their families are not even aware. They still keep the hope of their return without knowing they are dead and buried with no rites. We appeal to the government of Nigeria to please act on our behalf so we won’t continue to perish in this peril. There are many Nigerians in all the 46 prisons in Ghana that need help from the Nigerian government. Also the media, kindly keep spreading the message until it finally grips the attention of the able government.
To fellow citizens of Nigeria, our brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers, please continue to pray for us and do what you can to return us back home. Another sad part is that most of us are on sick bed, no drugs for us. This is the unseen hardship Nigerian citizens in all the prisons in Ghana are facing and myself inclusive. I’ve been sick for the past 2 months and they have not taken me to the hospital or give me any drug. They treat us like animals, they give us dry garri everyday, no access to communication. I know how I suffered to get this phone to send this message to you. Please, on this message, lies the survival of about 800 to 1000 Nigerian prisoners in the 46 prisons in Ghana who are in this type of high sentence. Help us spread the message to all the four corners of Nigeria to make campaign for our freedom because that is the only hope left for us.

The 58-year-old business titan, who has an empire worth over an estimated $15.7 billion – tried to purchase the club in 2010, but his bid failed.
Dangote told Bloomberg Business.
“I still hope, one day at the right price, that I’ll buy the team,”
“I might buy it, not at a ridiculous price but a price that the owners won’t want to resist. I know my strategy.
“We have $16bn-worth [€14bn] of investments in the next few years. Right now I want to take my own business to a certain level. Once I finish on that trajectory, then maybe an offer will follow,”
Dangote is an Arsenal fan but has criticised Arsene Wenger, claiming that the 65-year-old “needs to change his style a bit” and warning that the club “need new direction”.
