|Michelle Obama has taken calls from children eagerly checking the progress of Santa's sleigh as it delivers presents around the world.
The First Lady volunteered for the traditional North American Aerospace Defence Command (Norad) Tracks Santa programme and wished callers a Merry Christmas.
"I see his sleigh with eight tiny reindeer and he is over Sudan - South Sudan. That's in Africa Cheap Detroit Red Wings Jersey ," she told a girl named Ella.
"And right now, he's delivering some gifts. He's going down, swooping down to some little kids who are in South Sudan, OK? That's where he is right now. It's really, really very cool, don't you think?"
Mrs Obama took the calls in the President's home state of Hawaii Cheap Dallas Stars Jersey , where the family are spending their Christmas holiday.
The Norad programme started when department store Sears Roebuck & Co advertised their Santa hotline in a magazine in 1955.
"Hey Kiddies, call me direct on my telephone," said the ad, below which was printed the wrong phone number.
Rather than getting through to the shop, children dialled America's Continental Air Defence Command (which later became Norad).
Instead of telling callers they had the wrong number, Colonel Harry Shoup told staff to check their radar screens and provide children with an update on Santa's location.
ABUJA Cheap Columbus Blue Jackets Jersey , April 10 (Xinhua) -- Nigeria's women soccer thrashed Mali 8-0 on Friday in the second leg qualifying match for the 2015 All Africa Games played in the Nigerian capital Abuja.

Nigeria won 9-1 on aggregate.

He said the Nigerian team would now look forward to playing some friendly matches ahead of the FIFA Women World Cup and other competitions in which the team will represent Nigeria.
Nigeria and Mali will slug it out again in an Olympic qualifier next month Cheap Carolina Hurricanes Jersey , at Nigeria's Abuja National Stadium.
JERUSALEM, Jan. 24 (Xinhua) -- Three Palestinians were arrested under suspicion of involvement in a shooting attack aimed at soldiers in the West Bank last week, the Israeli army said on Sunday.
The suspects were captured in the Palestinian village of Thinaba, for their alleged involvement in a shooting attack at Israeli soldiers, which wounded one lightly on Wednesday, east of Tulkarem Cheap Calgary Flames Jersey , in the northern West Bank. The assailants managed to flee the scene.
The three were arrested in a joint operation by the Israeli military and Shin Bet security agency on Friday and confessed to plotting and carrying out the attack and surrendered the weapons used for the attack, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) spokesperson said in a statement.
Among the Palestinians captured is a member of the Palestinian Authority intelligence service, Alaa Barqawi, who is believed to have hid the gun used by the two other suspects for the attack.
On Sunday morning, Israeli security forces raided the home of a senior Hamas official and Palestinian parliament member Hatem Qafisha, and arrested him and at least five other Palestinians on suspicion of "involvement in terror activity Cheap Buffalo Sabres Jersey ," a military spokesperson said.
In a related matter, the Shin Bet released a statement regarding the interrogation of 15-year-old Palestinian from Beit Amra near Hebron, who is suspected of killing Dafna Meir in the settlement of Otniel on January 17.
Twenty four Israelis and one U.S. citizen were killed in stabbing, shooting and car-ramming attacks by Palestinians in the past three months. More than 150 Palestinians have died, some in clashes with Israeli security forces during protests, while more than half died after allegedly carrying out Cheap Boston Bruins Jersey , or attempting to carry out, attacks against Israelis, as they were shot dead by security forces and vigilante citizens at the scene.
Israeli leaders blame the Palestinian Authority for incitement to violence behind the wave of attacks, fueled by strife over the site of the al-Aqsa mosque (or Temple Mount) in east Jerusalem, holy to Jews and Muslims.
The Palestinians, on their part Cheap Arizona Coyotes Jersey , charge Israel's occupation of the West Bank, east Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip, ongoing since 1967, and the dim prospects of establishing a Palestinian state in these territories in accordance with the two-state solution, are to blame for the upsurge in violence.
LONDON， Nov. 7 (Xinhua) -- A leading academic expert on politics believed that European negotiators may seek to continue Brexit talks with Britain until the 2020s when a new government will be in place at Westminster.
Dimitris Papadimitriou， professor of politics and director of the Manchester Jean Monnet Center of Excellence at the University of Manchester， also said Brussels may have the upper hand in brokering a deal with the British government because， in his view， Britain needs the access to Europe's single market more than it needs Britain.
Papadimitriou's interview with Xinhua came as David Davis， British secretary of state for exiting the EU， gave the government's first response in the House of Commons to last Thursday's landmark "Articl.
