“@nnamdiarea: The worst thing about Mandela’s death will be the long, dull speeches by African leaders who want to praise him but not learn from him” As I sat watching CNN last night, I couldn’t help but share the same sentiment expressed in the tweet above, but a few hours later I have come to the conclusion that nothing can spoil this. Not even the insincere speeches of some African/World leaders. The true measure of a man lies in how he is remembered when he is gone and today we pay tribute to this great African. Former South African President and one of Africa’s greatest statesmen Nelson Rolihlahla “Madiba” Mandela died at age 95 on Thursday after months of fighting illness and lung infection, as confirmed by South African authorities. Today we pay tribute

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York yesterday published the Report of the House of Bishops Working Group on Human Sexuality. And according to it, gay couples should be allowed to have their relationships blessed in church. DailyMail reports that the report, written by former civil servant Sir Joseph Pilling and a team of senior churchmen and women, was published seven months after the Church first indicated it is looking at ‘accommodations’ for same-sex couples and four months after the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, told Church leaders that ‘we must accept there is a revolution in the area of sexuality.’ It signals an end to the Church’s longstanding insistence that gay relationships are sinful and less worthy than heterosexual marriage. And may

What do you give a man who has almost everything? An Island! According to new reports, Angelina Jolie just dropped $19million for a secluded heart shaped Island located in Lake Mahopac, 50-miles away from New York City, which she reportedly plans to present to her partner Brad Pitt on his 50th birthday on December 18th. Angelina paid a recent visit to Petra Island where she discovered two sprawling properties designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, who is Brad’s favorite architect. She reportedly paid for one of the properties. “As soon as Angelina heard the island was on the market she arranged a viewing. She was really impressed. The house is perfect for romantic getaways or as a family retreat,” a source told the Daily Mirror U.K. ”It’s very private and Angelina
Jay Z is said to have bought drinks for a beauty queen amid rumours about his marriage to Beyonce. The rapper spent more than £5,000 on champagne while partying with gorgeous model Claudia Scheelen in Antwerp’s Magic nightclub last month. Claudia, 27, told the Mirror: “I was with my girlfriends and he sent over a drink to us – he had this huge bottle of Ace of Spades champagne, it must have been six or ten litres. “He told me ‘I’ve been all over the entire world, but the girls in Antwerp are the prettiest girls.’” Jay Z’s security tried to ban VIP guests from taking pictures – but Claudia discreetly snapped the 43-year-old relaxing with a glass of expensive bubbly after his gig at the Sportpaleis arena. Claudia says Jay Z didn’t talk about his wife or one-year-old
In what can be termed an extreme makeover stunt, a black family has become ‘white’. A man, his wife and their teenage daughter are unrecognizable today with a new hairdo and encapsulating make-up. They look a typical white family. This fascinating transformation was done as part of a French television show called “Dans la peau d’un Noir” (In the skin of a Black Person). Interestingly, a white family also lived like a black family as part of the reality TV show. Christine Cauquelin, a director of the documentary, explained that “this is not a movie about racism because France is not racist in the sense of segregation, but rather to address the behaviours that are causing tensions.” It was done to illustrate that people are treated differently because of the colour of their
The architects said that the design of the Al Wakrah stadium was inspired by the flowing shape of a dhow. The design of one of the nine new stadiums being built in Qatar for the 2022 FIFA World Cup has reportedly been likened to a honeypot after the plans were unveiled. The architects said that the design of the Al Wakrah stadium was inspired by the flowing shape of a dhow, a traditional sailing vessel used by pearl divers and fishermen in the region for centuries. However, Metro.co.uk reports that blogs likened the 40,000 capacity stadium to a honeypot, and a blog writer applauded the design, unintentional or not, saying that the ‘bigwigs’ behind the design should embrace this so-called faux pas and rebrand it as a deliberate nod towards the increasingly liberal Qatari policies

At just 5ft 2″ tall and weighing in at 4st 3lb, Lizzie Velasquez, 24, appears worryingly thin at first glance. But her tiny frame wasn’t caused by an eating disorder. Instead, it is the result of a syndrome so rare that it is shared by just two other people. Her condition means that try as she might, Lizzie, from Austin in Texas, finds it impossible to gain weight or store fat, and as a result, she’s forced to eat up to 60 small meals a day. Despite the challenges, the courageous 24-year-old insists she wouldn’t change a thing about herself and, instead, throws herself into her work as a motivational speaker and anti-bullying campaigner. Speaking in TLC documentary, Body Bizarre, Lizzie, who was tormented by school bullies and has endured vile abuse online, said she
Racist Man kills wife and daughter but spared youngest child because she was ‘pure Aryan A father butchered his partner and their eight-year-old daughter in a cannabis-induced psychotic frenzy, a court heard yesterday. John Miller, 38, spared their other daughter, aged four, because she was a ‘true Aryan with blonde hair and blue eyes’.

He said he heard voices in his head and was told by ‘electrical signals’ to kill his family members, Leeds Crown Court was told. Miss Laycock was thrown downstairs and killed by Miller in the kitchen. She was stabbed
