Photo of Newborn Swaddled In American Flag Gets Photographer In Trouble

Posted in: , , ,

Photographer Vanessa Hicks, got herself in hot water after a newborn photo she posted to her professional Facebook page went viral. The navy veteran who is also married to a military man says she never could have anticipated the backlash she got from the photo of another military father in uniform, holding his baby in an American flag. The online furore, she said, started from a Facebook page that attacked the photo for desecrating the American flag.

Naysayers criticised the photograpgher and her husband, and also the father whose name appears in the photo as seen above. Some insisted he needed to be disciplined or sacked. But Hicks stood up for her picture and called on her friends, fans, family, and anyone who loved the picture to defend it and share. Now, she may be making prints to sell of the photo, and she believes this is a win for those in military service who often give their lives in defence of the country, the flag and all it stands for.

USAvsGhana, Iran Vs Nigeria - What Happened? See Funny Yabbis and Picture Memes

Posted in: , , , ,

I earlier wrote that Nigeria beating Iran was a done deal, while cheering the Super Eagles, but they proved me wrong. After the match, I consoled myself saying we can manage a goal-less draw for now, but my friends on Facebook are just not happy with the performance of Nigeria Vs Iran match.

Some of those supporting all the African teams wanted to console themselves with Ghana, but the Black Stars also lost, too bad. But I am pleased with that though, I am rooting for USA going forward. I no want heart attack with the sloppy way the Super eagles are playing.

And the yabbis are just starting. Where is my American flag jare...
