Uganda police say testing piglets for ‘terrorism related material’

PIGLETS

KAMPALA, Saturday Police in Uganda said Saturday they were testing two piglets for “terrorism related material” after they were sneaked into the country’s parliament by two anti-corruption protesters. Seven police officers who were on duty outside parliament have also been suspended over the embarrassing security breach and detained on charges of neglect of duty, police deputy spokeswoman Polly Namaye told AFP. “The investigators are to test the animals for terrorism related material. You never know, there could have been another motive other than a protest,” she said. “This is a standard practice in investigations, leaving out no chances.” Uganda, which…

[VIDEO] Hunters wake up elephants in Africa and shoot them dead for a hunting TV show

Elephant Killers

The killing was filmed as part of an American hunting TV show called Mojo Outdoors TV. Animal Shame commented that while pictures of the event had been shared previously, there was no video footage to accompany these and so they had been accused of lying. In fact they go on to say that the trophy hunting world, who often refer to themselves as gentlemen and sportsmen, replied back that “a trophy hunter would never do something like that”. This video makes one wonder what lengths hunters will go to for the sake of the “sport”. – See more at: http://africageographic.com/blog/sleeping-elephant-woken-up-to-be-shot/#sthash.Dueq35RI.dpuf…

Meet the Britain’s oldest hooker, 85, who still charges top dollar for her services

Granny-Hooker

Sitting in her chair with a head of grey hair, a buttoned-up cardigan and a beaming smile, you’d be forgiven for thinking Sheila Vogel-Coupe was just like any other grandmother. But that is exactly what she is not. At 85 years of age Sheila has more notches on her bedpost than most twentysomethings – because she is Britain’s oldest prostitute. On closer examination, you can see that Sheila wears a miniskirt, suspenders and patent heels. And it’s no wonder she has such a large grin on her face, given that she rakes in £250 an hour for raunchy romps. Sheila went…

[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…
