23-Year-Old Dies Of Heart Attack While Donating Sperm For The 4th Time in a Week

Posted in: , ,

A Chinese medical student died of a heart attack while looking at a 'sexy magazine' in a sperm bank - on his fourth visit to the centre in just over a week. Zheng Gang, 23, was found dead in a private booth of a fertility clinic at Wuhan University after nurses noticed he was spending longer than usual producing his sample.

Two hours after he first entered the cubicle, medics broke in to find him lying unconscious on the floor. Despite frantic efforts to resuscitate him where he lay, doctors pronounced him dead at the scene.

The tragic death - which happened in February 2012 -  only came to light after the young man's family took the sperm bank, in Wuhan city, Hubei province, eastern China, to court saying that they were responsible for his death.

Joan Rivers Leaves Her $150 Million Fortune To Her Daughter And Her Dogs

Posted in: , ,

Joan Rivers had 4 dogs - 2 rescue dogs, Samantha and Teegan, who lived with her in New York, as well as a Jack Russell Terrier and a Border Collie in California.

The late comedian  amassed a $150 million fortune, earning $40 million a year – and reportedly raked in over $1 billion in sales of clothing and jewelry in her partnership with home shopping network QVC over the last 24 years.

Her lavish apartment on Manhattan’s Upper East side – bought through a family trust – was recently valued at $35 million. And, as Joan publicly stated, everything goes to Melissa Rivers.

However, her goddaughter Tracie Hotchner has revealed that Joan also left ‘clear provision’ for her dogs, writing:

‘How could you not love a woman who, when push came to shove, called her doggies her best friends and in later years said they were better companions than a husband because ‘They didn’t leave the seat up!’

Check out more pictures of Joan with her dogs and her amazing luxury home below...

The Power And Control Wheel - Practical Ways To Recognize Domestic Violence

Posted in: , , ,

After reading the posts about the domestic violence incident involving Janay and Ray Rice, and while going through the #WhyIStayed hashtag that shared the stories of other abused women, I came across this image.

The Power and Control Wheel above shows how domestic violence is not only about physical and/or sexual abuse, but also involves a range of tactics of psychological, emotional and economic abuse.

Domestic violence is usually characterised by power and control, with an abuser controlling their victims through coercion and fear in order to get their own way. One of the main ways abusers control and intimidate their partners and family members is through psychological/emotional abuse.

On How To Spot A Stingy Guy - Must A Guy Spend On His Girlfriend?

Posted in: , , , ,

Toke Makinwa spoke on the issue of stingy men in her weekly Vlog where she gave women pointers for identifying a stingy guy. I agree that being stingy is not a desirable trait in both men and women, and a giving spirit encourages one to reciprocate, but when Toke repeats several times, "a stingy man is bad for business", I wonder, what business are we talking about, are you a prostitute?

Toke goes on  to say;

He might be rich but “Is that money in circulation?... A stingy man is not the way forward, a stingy man is bad for business....some guys are so stingy that if you want to collect money from them, it's like squeezing a rock to bring out water..... a proper gentleman doesn't let a lady ask him for stuffs cos he knows she needs 'em...when a lady is scratching her hair, it's a sign for him to know that she needs to change her hair...Ladies if a man is not giving you money, close your LEGS!"

Again, I'm baffled. Close your legs? Must money from your romantic partner equate to sex? Are stuffs like fake hair, cars, bling, or restaurant outings, the only things women want from men? Should a guy even give his working girlfriend raw cash or gifts? Makes it look like an aristo arrangement.

For me, some things are more important than money in terms of being in a genuine relationship. These are support and understanding, respect and tolerance, and the spirit of compromise. Anyways, watch Toke's video below....

Oscar Pistorius has been found guilty of culpable homicide for the fatal shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day last year.

The guilty verdict on the manslaughter charge, a day after the judge Thokozile Masipa cleared him of murder, means Pistorius could receive anything from 15 years in prison to a suspended sentence, which would potentially allow the double amputee a chance to resurrect his sporting career.

The charge of culpable homicide carries a minimum sentence of a fine, or up to 10 years in prison, according to the discretion of the judge.

He has been granted extended bail, and will be sentenced October 13.

Atheist US Airman To Sue Military Following Sack Threat Unless He Swears By God

Posted in: , ,

In the latest religious controversy to roil the air force, the atheist airman last month was denied his request to re-enlist because of his refusal to swear to God -- and he is now poised to take the military to court, his lawyer said.

'We have not received word from the Air Force regarding our letter. It has not indicated a willingness to settle out of court,' said Monica Miller, an attorney for the American Humanist Association, which has taken up the service member's case.

The US Air Force has told a sergeant he will have to leave the military unless he agrees to take an oath with the phrase 'so help me God,' officials said Tuesday. The airman is based at Creech Air Force base in Nevada. In the past, an airman could opt for an alternative phrase and omit the words 'so help me God,' but the US Air Force changed its policy in October 2013.
