I love thee to the level of every day’s Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight. I love thee freely, as men strive for Right; I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise. I love with a passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints, I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life! and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death. #MRX”

Nicki MinajRapper reveals she had an abortion

 

American female rapper, Nicki Minaj, has come out for the first time to talk about having an abortion.

In a candid interview with American music magazine, Rolling Stone, the rapper detailed the horror of making the decision to terminate a pregnancy at a very young age.

I thought I was going to die. I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through,” she said about the experience at that time. “It has thaunted me all my life. It’d be contradictory if I said I wasn’t pro-choice. I wasn’t ready. I didn’t have anything to offer a child,” she said.

Though this is the first time Nicki Minaj is talking about this abortion, she has however always hinted it in some of her songs. She first made mention of it in her 2008 record “Autography” where she referred as “Mommy” before touching on the topic again in a recent song titled “All Things Go”.

“My child Aaron would have been 16, any minute/ So in some ways I feel like Caiah is the both of them/ It’s like he’s Caiah’s little angel, looking over him,” she rapped on the song referring to a child who would have been 16, the same age as her beloved younger brother, Micaiah.

Although it is not known who “Aaron” is, the man who impregnated her, but he is believed to have been an older man from Queens, New York who she met while studying at the revered LaGuardia performing arts school.

Egypt bans movie ‘Exodus’

Watch this video

Another Hollywood movie is running afoul of a foreign government this month.

“Exodus: Gods and Kings” was banned in Egypt.

“The Ministry of Culture bans the film ‘Gods and Kings’ for historical inaccuracies,” the Egyptian agency said in a statement.

Does ‘Exodus’ have a race problem?

The movie, which stars Christian Bale as Moses, is a re-enactment of the biblical story of the Jews’ escape from slavery in Egypt more than 3,000 years ago, during the time of the pharaohs. Australian actor Joel Hedgerton plays the Pharaoh Ramses in the 20th Century Fox production.

Egyptian Culture Minister Jabir Asfour slammed the film as “Zionist.”

“It shows history from a Zionist viewpoint and forges historical events, therefore it is was banned in Egypt,” according to state news agency EGYNews.

In 1956, the same biblical story was told in “The Ten Commandments” starring Charlton Heston as Moses and Yul Brynner as Ramses. That version was filmed on location in Egypt.

“Exodus” is the latest in Hollywood’s string of religious-themed movies released this year.

In March, several Muslim countries banned the blockbuster “Noah,” saying the depiction of Noah — whom Muslims revere as a prophet — is forbidden in Islam.

News of the ban comes on the heels of the limited release of “The Interview,” the movie that provoked North Korea to vow “merciless” action against the United States over its lampooning of leader Kim Jong Un. On Saturday, North Korea called U.S. President Barack Obama the “chief culprit” who forced Sony to “indiscriminately distribute” the picture.

Step father strangles, skins 19-year-old girl for fear she would report to her mother he molested her

An evil man strangled and skinned his 19-year-old step daughter for fear she would report to her mother he molested her.

  

A step father who constantly abused and sexually molested a 19-year-old girl, Kassandra Bravo, went to the extreme by strangling her and skinning her for fear that she would report the abuse to her mother.

The incident which happened in Uruapan, Mexico, is seen as one of the most hideous crimes ver committed by a human being. According to excelsior.com.mx, the body of the teenage student nurse was found lying beside a road after she had been killed and then skinned.

The girl, according to the site, was reported to have told friends in a Facebook post that her stepfather had sexually assaulted her and also accused him of murder, an accusation he vehemently denied.

But on  3rd December, 2014, Bravo disappered and her mother Angeles, 41, raised the alarm when she did not turn up at a babysitting job with family friends.

Police issued a missing person notice for the teenager and three days later, her body was discovered lying beside a road near the village of Las Cocinas, between Uruapan and Los Reyes.

A post-mortem revealed she had been strangled until she passed out and then skinned.

The area is notorious for violent attacks on women and detectives were initially sceptical that they would get any leads. But after interviewing a friend, they were told Kassandra had been planning to tell her mum that stepfather, Daniel Murrieta Sainz, 42, had been sexually abusing her since the age of 15.

Police believe her Facebook post must have been seen by friends, and are trying to find out why nobody raised the alarm.

The man, Daniel Murrieta Sainz, admitted murdering his stepdaughter but denies it was because he had sexually assaulted her.

A Police spokesman, Francis Zamora said:

“We brought him in for questioning and he admitted strangling her and dumping the body, but denied he had been abusing her or that he had skinned her.

He said he had been furious when he wanted to take her to her babysitting job, and she had not been ready.

After a row he had strangled her.”

Bill Cosby: No charges over 1974 sex offence allegations

Comedian Bill Cosby plays the vibraphone in Boston, Massachusetts (January 2006)

Charges will not be filed against comedian Bill Cosby over allegations that he sexually assaulted a teenage girl in 1974, US prosecutors say.

They cited the statute of limitations which restricts the length of time in which legal action can be taken after an alleged crime has been committed.

Judy Huth alleges that Mr Cosby molested her when she was 15 years old.

She is one of at least 15 women who since early November have alleged that Mr Cosby sexually assaulted them.

The comedian’s lawyers have denied most of the allegations while dismissing others as either being discredited or decades old.

Most of the women concerned say that the comedian drugged them before assaulting them.

Ms Huth claimed that she was forced by Mr Cosby to perform a sex act on him at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles.

Judy Huth outside the Los Angeles Police Department's Wilshire Division station in Los Angeles (5 December 2014)Judy Huth says that she had no further contact with Mr Cosby after he allegedly molested her in 1974

Mr Cosby’s lawyer has accused her of trying to extort $250,000 from the star before she decided to sue – he also accused her of trying to sell her story to a tabloid a decade ago.

The actor has never been charged with a crime but the accusations have led to his stand-up tour being called off and the cancellation of a number of TV projects.

Earlier on Tuesday, Mr Cosby’s wife Camille spoke for the first time to defend her “wonderful husband” against claims of sexual assault.

“He is the man you thought you knew,” Mrs Cosby said in a statement.

Mrs Cosby, who has been married to the comedian for 50 years, said she continued to love the man she “fell in love with”.

She suggested the media’s portrayal of Cosby was a “portrait” of a man she “didn’t know”.

Four renovated halls in the Tutankhamun gallery in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo have been unveiled.

The renovation is part of a seven-year project to refurbish the entire Egyptian Museum.

The halls, opened by Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab, house treasures from the tomb of the boy king which were unearthed in 1922.

It was one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of the 20th Century.

Tutankhamun’s tomb had been untouched for some 3,000 years until the British archaeologist Howard Carter found it after years of fruitless excavations.

The renovation of the museum is being aided by funds from the European Union and other international donors, AFP reported.

James Moran, who heads the EU delegation in Cairo, said the EU gave support to help to boost Egypt’s tourism sector whose “revival… is fundamental for the economy”.

The EU, he told AFP, would offer 92,500 euros ($115,000, £73,300) next year to help renovate the eastern wing of Tutankhamun gallery.

The Egyptian Museum – first opened in 1902 in Cairo’s central Tahrir Square – contains 107 halls with artefacts dating from the prehistoric through to the Roman periods. The majority of the collection is focused on the era of the pharaohs.

The museum houses approximately 160,000 objects covering 5,000 years of Egypt’s past.
