Parents Arrested For 'Stealing' Sick Son From Hospital Get Some Good News

Posted in: ,

Parents who were arrested and were sitting in a Spanish prison for the crime of trying to save their dying son have been released.

The parents of 5-year-old Ashya King sparked an international manhunt when they snuck their little boy, who has a brain tumor, out of his hospital in Britain for a last ditch attempt to save him with an experimental procedure in the Czech Republic.

The boy was being treated at a hospital in southern England, but when the parents felt not enough was being done, they grabbed him and flew to Spain, where they had property they wanted to sell to fund the experimental treatment in Czech Republic.

Since the move was against doctors' orders and imperiled his life, a warrant went out for the pair's arrest. They were found and brought to jail. The little boy was taken to a Spanish hospital.

Celebrity Nude Photo Thefts - Apple Confirms Their iCloud Accounts Were Compromised

Posted in: , , ,

Apple has confirmed that some celebrities' iCloud accounts were broken into, but says it has found no evidence that this was caused by a breach of its security systems. Instead, the firm suggests perpetrators carried out their thefts by figuring out victims' log-in credentials.

The statement follows the online publication of intimate pictures of about 20 personalities. Actress Jennifer Lawrence and model, Kate Upton, have confirmed their leaked photos were real.

There had been speculation that the images were obtained due to a vulnerability in software that allows users to locate missing iPhones, since it had allowed unlimited password guesses.

But Apple has indicated that this was not the case. "Our customers' privacy and security are of utmost importance to us," said the firm in a statement, adding;

A new video has been released that appears to show the beheading execution of Steven Sotloff, the second American journalist killed by a self-professed member of the Islamic terror group ISIS.

ABC News reports that in the video, which appeared online today, Sotloff speaks calmly as the black clad militant holds a knife casually at his side. Sotloff addresses the camera, saying,

Pictures of Oyakhilome Daughters Surface as Man Sends Open Letter To Pastor Anita on Divorce

Posted in: , , ,

Charlene and Sharon Oyakhilome are the UK-based daughters of  Pastor Chris and Anita Oyakhilome. The older sister, Sharon celebrated her 21st birthday last month, and is a fast-rising gospel singer with the stage name Carissa Sharon Oyakhilome (CSO).

Pastor Anita Oyakhilome, the girl's mother,  had recently filed for divorce from her estranged husband, and the founder of Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. Speculations of the split between the couple came to light after church members in London sympathetic to their Pastor Anita, had set up a Facebook page calling out Pastor Chris for being un-Christian in his marriage, and how he has been treating Pastor Anita in the church.

Following the revelation in the press that it was actually Pastor Anita that filed for divorce, Mr Emeka Asinugo, a London-based journalist, has sent out an open letter addressed to her.

Alaafin Of Oyo And His 4 Wives Celebrate Birthday Together - Poster Family For Polygamy?

Posted in: ,

The Alaafin of Oyo Kingdom, Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi, with his four beautiful wives were all together as he celebrated his 76th birthday in London on Sunday, 31st August, 2014.

A photo of them at the airport last weekend while leaving Nigeria went viral on the internet as many commenters wondered how they have managed to live together, and some attributing their harmony either to a facade on the part of the women, or because the man has enough money for all.

What do you think? Do you know of many polygamous families where there appears to be such peace and accord?

Nigerian Woman Gives Birth To White Baby In Rare Odds That Shocked Even Doctors

Posted in: , , , , ,

32 year old Nigerian woman, Catherine Howarth was convinced she was handed the wrong child when midwives presented her with her new baby shortly after she gave birth at a Milton Keynes Hospital on June 1st.

She was stunned because the little boy named Jonah was completely white, and not at all biracial. And even though baby Jonah has a white father, doctors say the chances of him being completely white too were an incredible one in a million.

And it wasn’t only baby Jonah’s parents who were stunned, so were the midwives.

“The midwife looked at me and looked back down at Jonah and then at me again and couldn’t believe it. The doctors confirmed it was extremely rare."
