[VIDEO] Woman robbed on live TV while giving an interview on insecurity

brazil-woman-robbed-during-tv-interview

Police in Rio de Janeiro are getting pretty nervous about safety at this summer’s World Cup. Protesters are in the streets and crime has gotten so bad that the Brazilian army is now occupying slums and battling a low-level insurgency there. Authorities are coming up with all sorts of crime-fighting technologies — everything from surveillance drones to bomb-sniffing robots — that will hopefully keep the World Cup murder rate in check. And so it’s fitting that the internet gives us this video today, in which a woman in Rio is robbed in daylight on live TV while speaking to a reporter about robberies and…

Russia Is Ousted From Group of 8 by U.S. and Allies

G-8

The United States and its closest allies on Monday cast Russia out of the Group of 8 industrialized democracies, their most exclusive club, to punish President Vladimir V. Putin for his lightning annexation of Crimea, while threatening tougher sanctions if he escalates aggression against Ukraine. President Obama and the leaders of Canada, Japan and Europe’s four strongest economies gathered for the first time since the Ukraine crisis erupted last month, using a closed two-hour meeting on the sidelines of a summit about nuclear security to project a united front against Moscow. But they stopped short, at least for now, of…

[VIDEO] Incredible Footage as Colombia’s President WETS HIMSELF during re-election speech

This astonishing video shows the moment the President of Colombia WETS himself at the launch his re-election campaign. Juan Manuel Santos was giving an important speech when a wet patch suddenly began to appear on the crotch of his beige trousers. The 62-year-old, who is not known to have any illness, continued with his speech, apparently oblivious to his damp trousers. But as he continues his address in the coastal city of Barranquilla, the wet patch increases in size. Santos was elected President in 2010 and has since made his name as a peacemaker, stepping in to solve a political…

Saudi Arabia bans 50 baby names

Baby3

Dubai: Saudi Arabia’s interior ministry has banned 50 given names including “foreign” names, names related to royalty and those it considers to be blasphemous. Saudis will no longer be able to give their children names such as Amir (prince), Linda or Abdul Nabi (Slave of the Prophet) after the civil affairs department at the ministry issued the list, according to Saudi news sites. It justified the ban by saying that the names either contradicted the culture or religion of the kingdom, or were foreign, or “inappropriate”. The names fit into at least three categories: those that offend perceived religious sensibilities,…

‘Africa is not a country’: Students’ in US photo campaign breaks down stereotypes

Africa-students

They say there are no stupid questions — or are there? How about, “Do you speak African?” Or, “What is Africa’s flag?” Yes, these are quite ludicrous. Tired of regularly having to answer questions like these, a group of U.S.-based African students has launched a photo campaign in a bid to dispel misconceptions about their continent. Called “The Real Africa: Fight the Stereotype,” the social media initiative aims to educate and raise awareness about the common stereotypes surrounding Africa and its people — misunderstandings like Africa being a homogenous entity rather than a diverse continent of more than 50 countries. The campaign…

Hospital in Zimbabwe charged women $5 for each scream during childbirth

Zim-Hosi

Corruption is so systemic in Zimbabwe, one of Africa’s poorest countries, that a local hospital charges mothers-to-be $5 every time they scream while giving birth. That’s according to an extensive new report from Transparency International on corruption around the world, which also notes that a staggering 62 percent of Zimbabweans say they’ve paid a bribe in the past year. The $5 hospital screaming fee, purportedly a charge for “raising false alarm” but clearly aimed at separating mothers from their money, is no joke. Gross domestic product per capita is only $500 in Zimbabwe; average annual income per person is about…

Obama12

President Barack Obama has authorized sending weapons to Syrian rebels for the first time, U.S. officials said Thursday, after the White House disclosed that the United States has conclusive evidence President Bashar Assad’s government used chemical weapons against opposition forces trying to overthrow him. Obama has repeatedly said the use of chemical weapons would cross a “red line” triggering greater American intervention in the two-year crisis. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., one of the strongest proponents of U.S. military action in Syria, said he was told Thursday that Obama had decided to “provide arms to the rebels,” a decision confirmed by…
