Zidane’s Trousers Tears Again (Photos)

Who makes his clothes? It’s either his thigh muscles fatten up whenever he is coaching or his tailor or he needs to change his tailor as Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane suffered a wardrobe malfunction last night against Man City in the champions league, just like he did in the last champions league match against Wolfsburg. His trousers tore at the back while he was ranting and raving on the touchline for Real Madrid last night.

The most funniest thing is that he didn’t even notice it. I do believe it boils down to pressure of being a Real Madrid because a change in air will be felt after the tear.

“Taking My Bath is My Annoying Routine” – Simi

She was ten when she wrote her first tune and she had sang as a member of the teenage church choir has finally broken free to produce some great songs like ‘Jamb Question’ , ‘Love don’t care’etc..

Simi was a kind of a tomboy while growing up because she had three elder brothers and from her mum. she was the only girl and last born.

“So I used to like sneakers, baggy jeans etc. My dad spoilt my brothers and I, but it was fun. When I was nine years, my parents separated and so that was really a tough time for us, because we had to grow up faster. We came through it and we are okay.” She said.

A lot of ladies enjoy taking their baths but Simi has a different view about taking bath, it is very annoying to her.

She said about her annoying routine:

“That will be taking my bath. It’s not that I don’t like bathing but I love to multi-task. At times I might be brushing my teeth while also operating my system or reading. But when you get into the bathroom, you just can’t do any other thing.”

Why You Should Not Marry These Women: Nurses, Police Women, Lawyers, TV Anchors & Politicians

When it comes to good wives, there are careers you should not consider marrying women from. There are shocking reasons why police women, TV news anchors, nurses, lawyers and politicians don’t make good wives.
.
——– POLICE WOMAN ———

A police woman carries so much power that when her husband tries to raise a hand, he is told..”Unless you want to rot in jail”.
.
It is very hard to tame a police woman, unless you have some authority that can neutralize her powers.
.
Another obvious reason what these women don’t make good wives is the fact that they are rarely at home to cook for the husband. Just when you are about to sleep, a phone call rings, demanding that she must report on duty. And when you are about to settle in a city, your wife is transferred to hardship areas.
.
——-NURSES——–

Nursing profession is a calling, just like NUNS. These people always attend to patients in critical conditions as well as stable conditions. The psychological torture they go through make them lose interest in bedroom matters, which is why they are cold in bed.


It is also reported that Nurses, on duty, befriend doctors. So-when the husband is warming the bed alone, the nurse is warming a room in hospital alongside her “lover”, doctor. Sometimes-I have witnessed before-some nurses sleep with patients.
.
——– LAWYERS———

Lawyers are powerful people in society. If you want to lose your home, property, your children and even your entire life, marry a female lawyer. If your wife is an activist, chances of leading a miserable life are very high.
.
One interesting thing about female lawyers is that they understand law very well; they can easily manipulate you when buying property or making any investment.
.
One common character about lawyers is that they are used to handling cases, so even when the husband tries to discipline her, he will be reminded that courts exist. A man will, therefore, be left living like a slave.
.
——TV NEWS ANCHORS/PRESENTERS——-

These are the worst people to marry.TV presenters are extremely beautiful, and since they appear on screens daily, chances of catching the eye of the high and mighty are high. You know one thing with women, they can’t resist power and money.so-if a wealthy person approaches her, even if she is married, chances of her accepting the advances are almost 100 %.
.
The poor husband will be left dying of depression as a wealthy man elope with his wife.
.
You can only manage these girls if you have power and money.
.
——– POLITICIANS ——–

Women politicians are all over. It is very hard to find a female politician who is happily married and faithful-if she is faithful then there is something wrong with her.
.
These politicians are also law makers, so chances of intimidating husbands are very high

 

Former Slave Replaces Slave Owner on New US $20 Bill

The US dollar bill is getting a makeover and a portrait of a woman will appear on the country’s banknote for the first time, Treasury Secretary Jacob L. Lew announced Wednesday.
Harriet Tubman, an African-American, former slave and abolitionist, will replace Andrew Jackson on the 20 dollar bill in a historic move. Andrew Jackson, a former US president, was also a slave owner. It is the first time that a woman will be featured on the front of the nation’s currency.

“Her incredible story of courage and commitment to equality embodies the ideals of democracy that our nation celebrates, and we will continue to value her legacy on our currency,” Lew wrote in an open letter on Medium.

Tubman, who died in 1913, relentlessly worked to free her family and others from slavery as a “conductor” of the Underground Railroad, a network of safe houses that led to freedom, from the American South, where slavery was legal, to the North where the practice was outlawed. Also known as “General Tubman,” she led a military expedition that freed more than 700 people in South Carolina.
Lew also announced that the reverse of the new 10 dollar bill will pay respect to leaders of the American suffrage movement — Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Alice Paul — and the reverse 5 dollar bill will have an image to honor the events at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. It was here Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his momentous “I have a Dream” speech.

The new bills, expected to be in use by 2020, is seen as a fitting tribute to mark the 100th anniversary of the women’s suffrage in the US.Last year, “Women on 20s” campaigned for a woman to be chosen to be on the banknote before they submitted their petition to President Barack Obama and the Treasury Department for the new face of the 20 dollar bill.

The non-profit, which has been campaigning to feature a woman on the US currency, picked Tubman from a primary list of 12 women, chosen from over 100 names, after a public poll. The final contenders included former first lady Eleanor Roosevelt, civil rights activist Rosa Parks and Wilma Mankiller, the first elected chief of the native Cherokee Nation.

But for some, changing the face on the country’s currency, though it signifies a historic shift, is only a “gesture.”

During the presidential debate in September, then-Republican candidate Carly Fiorina said “it doesn’t help to change our history.”

“What I would think is we ought to recognize that women are not special interest group,” she said. “Women are the majority of this nation, and this nation will be better off when every woman has the opportunity to live the life she chooses.”

But on Wednesday, as the Treasury Secretary formally announced the decision, activists hailed the move as “honoring women in this most visible fashion.”

Susan Ades Stone, executive director of Women on 20s, said having Tubman on the US dollar bill “powerfully inspire the quest for gender equality going forward.”

“This is just as much a victory for the millions of American people, young and old, who cared enough about women and their worth to rally for this historic change,” Stone said in the non-profit’s press release.

 

North Korea Bans Jeans and Piercings

 

North Koreans have been banned from having piercings and face new restrictions on ‘Western clothing’ including jeans.

Dictator Kim Jong-un has launched a nationwide crackdown on citizens but the ban will focus primarily on the North Hamgyong province and Yanggang province close to China.

Pyongyang is reportedly concerned that people living in those areas will be more exposed to the outside world and therefore more influence by Western fashion.

According to Japan’s Asia Press, the rules have been tightened ahead of the 7th Congress of North Korea’s Workers’ Party.

Ishimaru Jiro, a Japanese journalist working with citizen reporters inside North Korea, wrote: ‘A growing number of North Korean people are infatuated with Western culture. The crackdown will continue until the end of the upcoming gathering (the 7th Congress).’

According to the Daily Telegraph, citizens will be monitored by a growing group of youths loyal to Kim Jong-un

Rimjin-gang, a North Korean news website supported by AsiaPress, said the ‘inspection’ units ‘target supposed capitalist tendencies such as length of skirts, the shape of shoes, T-shirts, hairstyles, and clothes.

It comes just months after it was reported that Kim Jong-un was ordering men to copy his ‘ambitious’ hair style limiting growth to a maximum length of 2cm.

Anyone breaching the restrictive guidelines faced having their hair shorn by authorities, especially in universities, who have been warned to watch out for any capitalist styles.

Women were advised to copy his wife, Ri Sol-ju’s bob.

The latest fashion crackdown comes as North Korea’s preparations for a fifth nuclear bomb test were revealed to be in their ‘final stages’ amid reports of a surge in activity at the country’s main atomic site.

South Korean and U.S. authorities detected two to three times more vehicle and personnel activities than normal this month at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site – where all previous four tests took place.

‘If they are signs of nuclear test preparations, it seems the preparations are in the final stages,’ South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said quoted one government source as saying.

In a regular meeting with her top adviser, South Korea President Park Geun-hye said the North could carry out such a test to bolster morale as the country deals with tough international sanctions imposed after it conducted a fourth nuclear test and a long-range rocket launch earlier this year.

The World’s Most Expensive Watch Valued at $18 Million

Up until yesterday, this new Jacob & Co. watch could have been the most expensive watch currently created.

Still, the all-new Jacob & Co. Billionaire watch holds a price point of $18 million dollars. While it is a one-of-a-kind unique piece, Jacob & Co. founder, Jacob Arabo says it is possible he will create others like it utilizing different gemstones.

So, what makes this an $18 million watch? Three key factors: the diamonds; the movement; the affiliation with Flavio Briatore and his company Billionaire Lifestyle SARL (hence the name of the watch: Billionaire). While Jacob & Co. has long been known as the creator of extravagant jewelry and over-the-top gemstone-adorned watches, this newest release just may bring the diamond watch game to an all-new level.

The Billionaire may be setting a world record when it comes to carat weight, as it is entirely diamond set with 260 carats of emerald-cut diamonds. They form the case and bracelet of the watch thanks to the creative use of a Bead setting in an inverted pyramid style. . Each diamond is GIA-certified and some of the stones weight up to 3 carats each. The case and bracelet are one seamless entity crafted in 18-karat white gold with a sapphire crystal and sapphire caseback.

Within this shimmering glory, sits the rectangular watch “dial,” which isn’t really a dial at all thanks to the sapphire crystals and skeletonized movement. The highly skeletonized caliber, the JCAM09, is handcrafted and equipped with a tourbillon escarpment. The movement consists of a scant 167 components and 19 jewels, and offers 72 hours of power reserve.

Indonesian Singer Dies During Performance After Cobra Bites Her On Stage

An Indonesian singer has died after she was bitten by a cobra that was being used as a prop in her performance.

Irma Bule was bitten by the cobra on her thigh during a performance in a village in Karawang, West Java in Indonesia on Sunday. An eyewitness told Indonesian news that the 29-year-old singer was bitten after she stepped on the cobra’s tail during her second song.

It is believed that the singer thought the cobra was defanged, so she refused any help for the bite and continued to sing. Forty five minutes later and still performing, she began vomiting and having seizures. The singer was rushed to a nearby hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

Bule, who frequently performs with snakes and cobras, is a singer of Dangdut music, a genre of popular music based on traditional Indonesian folk music. Lydia Apririasari of the Tulala Snake Research Center told Rappler that dancing with snakes is very common in Indonesian villages. In the past, Bule has also used boa constrictors and pythons in her live shows.

People have responded to Bule’s death with both admiration for her showmanship and disdain at the foolishness of performing with a venomous snake.

Of course, when dealing with any animal, it’s important to pay them the respect they deserve. According to a study published in PLOS Medicine, there are an estimated 421,000 envenomings and 20,000 deaths from snake bites every year. A vast majority of these occur in South Asia, Southeast Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa. It is possible to avoid serious injury and death, even from the most venomous of snakes, if you quickly seek appropriate medical attention.
