Raped German Girl Update: Story Is Fake, But Why The Hoax?

The incident of a 13-year-old girl kidnapped and raped by a group of Middle Eastern refugees turned out to be fake. The girl herself admitted that the story was “made up”. A family of Russian immigrants living in Berlin was involved in this incident which further aggravated the diplomatic relations between Germany and Russia.

The parents of the teenager, named only as Lisa in German media reports, reported her missing on the 11th of January after she failed to appear in  school. She re-appeared a day later with injuries to her face, and told her parents she had been kidnapped by men of Middle Eastern or north African appearance. This news spread through the social media raising anger and outrage amongst Berlin’s Russian-German community.

Three days later, when Lisa was interrogated by trained specialists, “she immediately admitted that the story of the rape was not true,” said the spokesman for the state prosecutor, Martin Steltner. He added that the girl was afraid of going home after her parents were contacted due to an incident that occurred in her school.

Previously, there were also reports of mass ual assaults allegedly carried out by migrants in Cologne which further fueled the turmoil of Lisa’s incident. A Russian-German community group staged a protest while the far-right National Democratic party also demonstrated in Marzahn.

Moreover, the situation got worse when a Russian state TV reported that the girl’s relatives had asserted that her allegations were not being probed.

According to The Guardian, the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, criticized the Berlin authorities. “The news that she disappeared was kept secret for a very long time,” he told a press conference.

When Lisa’s mobile phone records were checked, it appeared that she had spent the night with a friend, who was not considered as a suspect in this case.

The teenager’s mother told the Der Spiegel magazine on Sunday that Lisa was “doing very badly” and was being treated in a psychiatric ward.

El Chapo Escape A Hoax–Read Here How It Spreads

The notorious drug lord El Chapo has escaped the prison for the third time. This news which spread like wildfire last Sunday ended up being a hoax.

Advertisement

A fake news site, which appeared like ABC News, reported the escape of the notoriously slippery drug lord out of Altiplano, the maximum security prison. The fake site report goes – It is unclear at this point what exactly happened, but these are the details ABC News has received from Mexican officials so far:

Advertisement

2:35 AM: Guzmán was taken in restraints by two prison guards on a routine cell transfer.

3:05 AM: Prison staff could not locate Guzmán or the two prison guards’ whereabouts. The prison was put on lockdown as personnel went looking for them.

4:15 AM: A prison van was found abandoned only a mile away from the prison. Mexican officials believe the two guards, who began working at the prison just months ago, were actually members of the Sinaloa Cartel working for Guzmán.

Advertisement

An undercover US FBI agent said that El Chapo’s flight was similar to Osama Bin Laden’s  escape from prison. And the state only has itself to blame. “What does this say about Mexican corruption?” the agent asked. “Disgusting”, according to Dallas Morning News.

This is not the first time that news about the Mexican drug kingpin’s  escape broke. El Chapo had actually escaped from prison earlier so it is not surprising that people believed in the recent news and began sharing the link.

Rosie Waterland Naked Photos On FB Causes Online Debate: What Was Her Message?

Australian writer Rosie Waterland posted naked photos of herself on Facebook in a dare to people who give unnecessary attention to women’s appearance. The writer of “The Anti-Cool Girl” expressed her views on how female bodies are talked about in today’s society. She emphasized that women should value their intelligence and talents rather than their looks, according to ABC Net.

Advertisement

In her post, she said she was not happy being called “brave” for being “a few kilos heavier than the average fashion model.” She admitted being frustrated about the several talented women who “still see weight as a major contributing factor to their value.”

Advertisement

The Sydney-based author wanted these women to celebrate and enjoy the way they are. She wrote on Facebook, “It [weight] shouldn’t even be an issue. When you are spectacularly intelligent and talented, your appearance and weight should not even be an issue. I know, that as a woman, it’s not easy to say that. As a woman, even if your appearance isn’t an issue to you, it is to everyone else. I get that. But, f*** everyone else.”

Waterland feels it is a waste of time to be bothering so much about physical appearance when women have other bigger issues to face in their day-to-day lives.

She continued, “I survived a childhood filled with abandonment and trauma. Then I survived mental health struggles and eating disorders. I had weight loss surgery and continue to question that decision,” she wrote.

“And in the end of all of that, this is me. This is my body. I have stretch marks. I have flabby skin. I have a belly. I have saggy boobs and I’m covered in freckles that made me cry when I was younger.”

“But I’m also a best-selling author. A famous writer. An admired and funny woman. I’m touring a live one-woman show this year. I’m attending writing festivals with my heroes. I’m writing and starring in my own TV show.”

Waterland also admitted that posting a naked picture of herself could hamper or even end her career. “Sharing a picture like this should end my entertainment industry career. F*** that. I can write for and play multi-faceted, complex and brilliant women because I am one. And I am one because of the life I’ve lived and the body that I’ve lived it in.”

Advertisement

She goes on to say – “I am not flawed. I am brilliant. I am a survivor. And I make no apologies.”

She has a simple and meaningful message to all the wonderful women out there. She wants them to remember they are all awesome and talented and have the least need to think about their body when they are successful.

Duchess Of Cambridge Kate Middleton Is Busier Than Ever; Gets Ready For Editing Job, Interview and Royal Duties

Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton is busier than ever. And for her, being a part of the royal family brings equal responsibilities. Middleton is set for her new editing job in the Huffington Post UK this month.

Advertisement

The news broke was revealed by Kensington Palace on Instagram. “The Duchess of Cambridge will continue her work to highlight the importance of children’s mental health when she serves as Guest Editor of @huffpostuk for a day in mid-February,” the post read. “The Duchess will use the opportunity to highlight the inspiring work being done by parents, teachers, researchers, and mental health professionals around the country.”

Advertisement

Earlier, the Duchess was working towards raising mental health awareness for the youth. As a part of her role as an editor this month, she is expected to reach some big names in the mental health field who can give their valuable inputs for the cause.

Now, as the new job (though for a day) is related to editing, Middleton can think of writing on a regular basis, maybe once in a month. She would get an amazing response for sure as the issue she has raised (importance of children’s mental health) is a topic of concern and the world wants to know more and more from the Royals about their contribution to such concerns. Price Williams is also very well-known and praised for his efforts to raise charity. They can team up to bring some outstanding results on the social work front.

Kate Middleton with her editing skills can join Carole Middleton who can advise her on enhancing her writing for newspaper and magazine articles. Last year, the Middleton matriarch took on writing party-planning columns for two publications when Carole Middleton wrote for Little London as well as Baby London. She writes about the latest and most exciting trends related to children’s entertainment, according to Celebrity Dirty Laundry.

It doesn’t end here! Whether she thinks about taking further her editing job or not, she has several other responsibilities as a Royal. Prince William’s wife is busier than ever for the next few months as she will be attending several royal engagements and activities.

On Feb. 7, during the Air Force organization’s 75th anniversary, the Duchess is expected to attend her first official event as Honorary Air Commandant of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets.

People worldwide will get to see her in an interview with a provisional title, “The Queen at Ninety,” that is a reportedly part of a special documentary in honor of Queen Elizabeth II, according to E News. Her husband Prince William, father-in-law Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles are reportedly joining her during this interview which is set to premiere on ITV in May.

Advertisement

The news is abuzz that the Queen will be passing on quite a few responsibilities to the younger generation of the royal family as her 90th birthday arrives, according to Daily Mail.

The Queen will be handing over her 64-year old responsibilities of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club patronage to Duchess Kate, who has been a lifelong tennis fan herself. Another Royal, Prince Harry, will be receiving the patronage of the Rugby Football Union, the website added.

On the other hand, Duchess Kate and Prince William’s absence from the Middletons’ annual Mustique holiday did not go unnoticed.

Rumors that have been making rounds are about Kate’s third pregnancy. Her absence from the family’s Mustique holiday has also raised brows on this front.

It was also speculated that the royals might have missed it as Prince George had just begun his new nursery routine and the parents did not want his schedule to be disturbed, according to Hello Magazine.

In addition, the Duke of Cambridge’s royal commitments are keeping him very busy him in the U.K. Needless to say, the royal duties that are lined up for the Duchess are quite a handful. That is also expected to be one of the reasons for their absence from the Mustique holiday. And giving time to everything just isn’t possible. After all, it’s not easy being a royal family member.

As of now, all eyes are set on Kate’s role as an editor this month as that is the latest and most anticipated event related to her.

Pope Francis to Make Acting Debut In Religious Movie "Beyond The Sun"

Pope Francis, 79, will make his acting debut by playing himself in a religious movie titled Beyond the Sun. This will be a first for any pope in the Vatican’s history. AMBI Pictures, a Rome-based distribution and production company, has announced the film as a family adventure based on the Gospels.

Pope Francis asked the filmmakers to make a movie that communicated Jesus’ message to children. Beyond The Sun is described as a “family adventure story where children from different cultures emulate the apostles while searching for Jesus in the world around them.” The AMBI website reveals that the movie will end with an epilogue from Pope Francis.

Despite appearing in the movie, the Vatican made it clear that the Holy Father won’t be adding anything new to his multi-hyphenate job title. “The Pope is not an actor,” a Vatican spokesman told Reuters.

AMBI co-founders Andrea Iervolino and Lady Monika Bacardi will finance and produce the film. Graciela Rodriguez wrote the screenplay and will co-produce with Gabriel Leybu. Monsignor Eduardo Garcia will be Pope Francis’ advisor. The movie’s profits will go to Argentinean charities El Alemendro and Los Hogares de Cristo, which aid at-risk children and young adults, according to Variety.

Iervolino made his first movie at age 15 in his hometown of Cassino, Italy. “Our excitement and gratitude toward His Holiness, Pope Francis, participating in this film is beyond words,” he said, adding “This is not just a movie for us, it’s a message, and who better to have on your side to deliver an important societal and spiritual message than the Pope.”

Advertisement

Bacardi, for her part, said “It is a great honor for Andrea and I to have the opportunity to work with His Holiness, Pope Francis, to spread the awareness of his message, through this film. We will make a movie everyone involved can be proud of. Not only will families from around the globe enjoy this film and be entertained, but they will be moved.”

The worldwide distribution for Beyond the Sun will be managed by AMBI through its Los Angeles-based international sales division.

One Piece Chapter 813 Spoilers

A few hours from now, One Piece Chapter 813 will be released and spoilers revealed that it would be about the wedding of the Strawhat Pirates’ cook, Sanji.

Black Leg’s wedding is said to be a tea party, which is really common for the French families. Furthermore, according to Movie News Guide, fans of the anime series would also have the chance to see the wedding invitation, a heart-shaped figure enclosed with two curves at the bottom, akin to his new swirly eyebrows.

The title of Sanji as Vinsmock’s Third Son was presented on the invitation together with the title of his soon-to-be wife, the 35th daughter of Big Mam Pirates Captain Charlotte Linlin, Pudding. Aside from the wedding that will take place, the next chapter will also show the fans how the Strawhats are planning to retaliate against Big Mam and rescue their cook from Capone Bege.

Design & Trend described Luffy as someone who will never let go of his crew, unless they really want to and Sanji being kidnapped, who is bound to marry a member of the Charlotte family. Fans can expect that it would not be pretty. Plus, there is no doubt that Sanji really want to get out of that hell hole.

Another event that hyped the fans for the upcoming episodes is the introduction of Sanji’s family and as he re-unites with them, there are questions of how it will change the situation. According to a prediction from Oro Jackson, there is a possibility that the Vinsmocks are well-known people in the North Blue and has a strong influence in the country.

There are also questions about what are the motives of Capone because it was surprising when he joined the crew of Big Mam. Is taking down Big Mam part of his motives? Lastly, is it possible that Oda is preparing us to see Caesar as the next member of the Strawhats? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

WW3 Scenarios: Smaller Nukes May Compel Pentagon To Use Them With Less Apprehension

Smaller nukes don’t mean safer nukes. In fact, it may be the other way around.

Advertisement

With threats coming from terrorists and the nuclear tests recently done by North Korea, the United States of America is creating smaller nukes that will blur the lines between nuclear and conventional weapons, and which are said to be less controversial and more “useable”.

Advertisement

According to the Popular Mechanics, the new smaller explosive B61-12 will be the first nuclear stand-off bomb of America. The bomb is designed to be safe for the aircraft doing the bombing because it can be delivered at a safer distance than the previous ones. This was made possible by an internal guidance system, which was reportedly not using a GPS. The system will give the smaller nukes an accuracy of around 30 meters, and after release, a pair of rockets would fire to induce spin. This system will allow the warplanes to lob the bomb from afar.

The New York Times reported that the bomb’s explosive force can be dialed up or down depending on the target, which will allow it to minimize the collateral damage. It can be set to 300 tons (equivalent to 300 high explosive bombs weighing 2,000 pounds), 1.5 kilotons, 10 kilotons (two-thirds of the explosive power of the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima), or 50 kilotons, which is three times the power of the Hiroshima bomb.

Since the Word War II, no country has been allowed to use nuclear weapons because of its destructive power and just the thought of using them creates a powerful psychological deterrent. But, unlike the previous powerful explosives, the B61-12 could deliver a nuclear explosion at an exact target that would limit its impact on the civilian. This fact may lead the US to use the weapon with a little apprehension, knowing that they could avoid hurting innocent people when dropping the nuclear bomb.

Advertisement

But according to Andrew Weber, the former assistant secretary of defense and former director of the Nuclear Weapons Council, the missile is completely “unaffordable and unneeded.” He said that instead of creating the weapon, his country could lead the way in paving a nuclear-free world and reduce the risk of nuclear wars.

Gizmodo agreed with Weber’s statement saying that the idea of creating such nuclear weapons would scare ordinary people because it would mean that to defeat nuclear weapons fired by the enemy is to deploy one ourselves and that would just mean threats to the civilians.

Personally, if the B61-12 would be successful, it may be reassuring that it is more precise when launched towards an enemy’s territory and it will not be a threat to any civilian because of its feature that could minimize its impact. But, what if the terrorists counter-attacked with their own nuclear bomb, would it also be precise in hitting its target and not involve any civilians?
