At least 159 people have been killed and 368 injured in an earthquake that hit a mountainous area of central Italy, civil protection officials say. The magnitude-6.2 quake struck at 03:36 (01:36 GMT), 100km (65 miles) north-east of Rome, not far from Perugia.

Want to Be More Successful? Do These 5 Things Every Day

People, Recommended for you
The more credible you are, the more successful and persuasive you'll be. Try these five methods - they work. In life, when you're credible, the world and its riches are there for the taking. In fact, your only limitation is what your imagination can dream up. But take away your credibility - and you become a captive that's trapped. Your personal credibility works like currency - currency that will open up unlimited opportunities. Take that currency away, and you're stuck. But take note: Credibility is not what you say you are. It's what others say you are. It's hard to earn, but easy to lose if you're careless. Take the example of two American news correspondents: Walter Cronkite and Brian Williams. Cronkite became the most trusted man in America through honest reporting. A man that ...

7 Bad Habits That Are Holding Millennials Back From Success

Corporate Reports, People
Drifting Along. Being carried along on no particular course is a strong prerequisite for ending up living a miserable life. You have to acknowledge that the life has already begun and it is high time to define your goals and aspire to them. Having an aspiration is crucial. Make decisions, take responsibility and be the one and only who determines the trajectory of your life. Saying "I Can't" to Everything That Looks Complex. It is not worth anything to say "I don't know" or "I can't". It instantly lets you relax and not put too much effort in dealing with an issue. However, this is not what will take you far from the place you are now. Adopt a habit to accept any challenge no matter how difficult it seems to be. Take some time to figure everything out and get everything right. Persist and...

FG’s Inaction Fuelling Fulani Herdsmen Attacks – Soyinka

People
Nobel laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, has attributed the unrelenting violence being perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen to the refusal of the Federal Government to arrest and punish the herders for the serial killings across the country. The renowned playwright described as a promotion of “undisputed impunity” the failure of the government to offer “legal, logical and moral response” to the spate of killings by the cattle rearers. In his speech tilted, ‘The Killing Culture of the Neo-Nomadic’, which was presented at the National Conference on Culture and Tourism in Abuja on Thursday, Soyinka stated that it was shocking that the government had yet to make a terse statement against the killings done by the herdsmen. Admitting that Boko Haram insurgents might no longer be as potent as the milita
