First Ebola Virus Victim - Patient Zero Has Been Identified as a Two-Year-Old Boy In Guinea

Posted in: , ,

Researchers tracing the Ebola virus back to patient zero think that they have identified him, a two-year-old boy who died on December 6, 2013. The toddler fell ill while in a village in southeastern Guinea called Guéckédou.

This small village is like a three nation intersection, as it sits on the border of Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. All three of these places have been heavily effected by the Ebola virus outbreak.

Scientists think that because the disease started in Guéckédou, it had an easy entry path into the three nations in West Africa that have suffered so many deaths between them.

There have now been 1,779 cases of Ebola reported and 961 people have died from the deadly disease.

Christian Bridal Shop Under Fire For Refusing To Sell Wedding Dresses To Lesbian Couple

Posted in: , ,

A bridal shop in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania is causing outrage in their local community and online after they refused to sell wedding dresses to a lesbian couple.

The store's owner Victoria Miller says she denied the lesbian couple dresses because of her Christian religion. Store owner Victoria Miller, who identifies as Christian, told the Press Enterprise;

'We feel we have to answer to God for what we do, and providing those two girls dresses for a sanctified marriage would break God’s law.' 

One of the disturbed brides to be, who didn't want to be identified, wrote a Facebook post about W-W Bridal's unfair treatment towards them based solely on their sexual orientation. The status read,

'I was put on hold for about five minutes so that the lady could get her appointment book. She took me off hold and said unfortunately she would not be able to schedule an appointment for us because they currently do not service same sex couples and it's just not something they do.'

Man Posing As Nigerian Prince in British High Society Jailed 7 Years For Immigration Scam

Posted in: , ,

A Nigerian posing as a prince in British high society while coordinating massive immigration fraud for almost 3 decades has now been jailed for his crimes. The conman who called himself 'His Royal Highness Prince Yilkyes Bala Finok Tonglele PhD State Crown Prince' was found guilty of using false and stolen IDs to help over 100 people to get into the UK. The UK Daily Mail reports;

Posing as a member of the Nigerian Royal family, he mingled with diplomats, captains of industry and senior police officers. Dr Yilkyes Bala was chauffeur-driven in a black Bentley and hosted sumptuous dinners at the Dorchester to mix with society’s elite. But the supposedly flourishing businessman was in fact a criminal mastermind responsible for an ambitious immigration racket.

Investigators believe he helped more than 100 of his countrymen, including most of his extended family, to enter the UK illegally under false and stolen identities.

At the centre of the scam was a corrupt Home Office worker who sold him genuine, but improperly issued, refugee passports for £1,500 each.
