Purple Aki

Ajimkinwale Arobieke, also known as Purple Aki was born on the 15th July 1961 and born in the North West region of England. He is 196cm tall and his criminal activities include: manslaughter; indecent assault and witness tampering.

At the age of 6 months, he was placed into care. As an adult he had many jobs including: a cleaner and a messenger for the Liverpool city council.

The people of Merseyside would tell stories of a man who would feel young men’s muscles. Even though the stories had different interpretations they have all agreed that he was tall. Parents told their children to not to stay out long or Aki would get them. Some thought he was an urban legend and not real but some believed he was real and that his name was Akinwale Arobieke. Many people have been victims of him. People wrote songs and made cartoons about him and the rumours that he had died was put to an end by the police.

One day, a boy called Gary took his own life because of Purple Aki. Gary used to be a happy person but as Aki came into his life he became a completely different person who was constantly frightened. Aki was stalking him a lot for example waiting for him at his bus stop and waited for him outside his school. He would ask to feel his muscles and Gary was teased in school about it. One day he went to the rail station to hide from Aki, but he had found him. So the poor boy decided to climb off the platform under a train, where he touched a live rail and was electrocuted!

Muslims Outraged

muslim-protestsA group of protesters on Thursday the 17th of November in America were showing their opinion about the decision/opt from Donald Trump to kick out all Muslims from America. A 19 year old Muslim, who has heard Islamophobic comments before, is trying to avoid the reality that Trump won. He said, “There is more to come… There are a lot of Ilhans in our communities” He also stated that it will only attract more danger.

About a month later on the 12th of December 2016, Muslims went out onto the streets and started forming violent acts towards the Police. Anti-Trump demonstrators have voiced concerns that his presidency, due to start on January 20, would infringe on Americans’ civil and human rights. In Los Angeles on Thursday night, police arrested about 185 people, mostly for blocking roadways or being juveniles out past curfew, according to police.

Some protestors carried signs saying things such as “Trump Fuera” which means they want Trump out. They also carried Mexican flags with them. They covered the street the Republican National Committee chairman, acknowledged on Friday the tight race with the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, but said anti-Trump protesters have to accept the election results.

Protests still carry on as Christmas rolls up and hopefully it could blow over after the New Year.

Yahoo accounts hacked

 

Yahoo said on Wednesday that it had discovered another major cyber-attack.

They said that data from more than 1 billion user’s accounts was compromised.

“Don’t panic,” security expert Graham Cluley told the BBC, although he does add that there are plenty of reasons to be concerned.

The problem is that they have only just found out that this happened and it happened in August in 2013. 3 years ago!

Yahoo has also said it is investigating a more recent, separate issue that might have made some accounts accessible without passwords.

This means that there is another problem that Yahoo isn’t telling everyone that could have something to do with the hacking of the accounts. Another problem is that they have only just told people about the hack now so if they would have said about this in 2013 this might have been sorted but it’s a been 3 years so loads of more information has been compromised. The hacker(s) could have got used to the system and found out more ways to access the private information.

“Your email account is the central hub of your entire online existence – if they own that they can ask for password resets on other accounts you have online as well,” explains Mr Cluley. This isn’t very reassuring for people, this just makes them more worried.

Yahoo own many accounts but Yahoo has said, though, that accounts for Tumblr – which it also owns – would not have been affected.

Jurgen Klopp questions Gary Neville’s Suitability as a TV pundit

 

 

Jurgen Klopp has recently questioned Gary Neville’s suitability as a TV pundit after he criticised Liverpool’s goalkeeper in his match against Bournemouth conceding four goals.

Klopp said “He showed he struggled with the job to judge players so why do we let him talk about talk about players on TV?”

Klopp made reference to Gary’s short-lived career as a manager of Valencia CF, only lasting four months.

His brother Phil then said the keeper should “keep his mouth shut”, as BBC’s Match of the Day analysed the keeper’s display against the Hammers last weekend.

“The Neville brothers – the one who was the manager he obviously should know that too much criticism never helps” Klopp said about Gary’s poor job at Valencia.

Both Gary Neville and Carragher criticised Karius after the loss at Bournemouth in November, before the former Mainz keeper hit back at Neville in a newspaper interview.

He said “I messed up but I don’t care what Gary Neville says… he is always very critical.”

African Footballer of the Year Announced

After weeks of voting, the African footballer of the year has been announced, and Riyhad Mahrez took the trophy over Yaya Toure, Andre Ayew, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Sadio Mane.

On the 12th December 2016 at 5:30 pm, Riyhad Mahrez won his first ever African Footballer of the year, which is voted for by the public. It is a very prestigious award in Africa, as it shows you were the best footballer in that continent in that respected year. The voting system eliminates three of the five candidates early on, and then reveals the winner about an hour later. The three people eliminated first are in particular order, but the last two are the first and second in the voting.  Sadio Mane came in a close second but Riyhad Mahrez took the trophy. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was eliminated first which left some people very surprised. The next footballer eliminated was Yaya Toure who has won the award twice (the same amount as Jay-Jay Okocha and one more than George Weah) but maybe he didn’t have as good of a year as the other contestants, so there was not much outcry over his elimination. The last of the first three eliminations came in the form of West Ham’s Andre Ayew who was injured at the start of this season so it came as no surprise when he was eliminated.

It came down to the final two footballers: Liverpool’s Sadio Mane and Leicester’s Riyhad Mahrez. Both players had never won the award before, and so wanted just as bad as each other. Eventually, Mahrez won the award after taking Leicester to a BPL title. He told BBC sport   “It means a lot, it’s something big for African players so I am very happy, I am very proud”.

New era of Footballing Rules?

 

Recently, during an interview, Pep Guardiola  (Manchester City Manager) had a few rule adjustments in mind for the FA to consider adding in to the beautiful game.

 During the interview, he suggested the idea of giving the managers the opportunity to use up to 6 substitutions during the course of the 90 minutes. He believes that, “They [the players] are focusing on more and more and more – it affects the quality,” which means that because football is becoming more intense, in footballing quality and on the athletes themselves, that they are becoming at risk of burning themselves out.

He also stated, “You play against Milan, Juventus, Madrid and you have to win. People demand you have to play good [with] no preparation. Then you come back and it’s 11 months again and it’s the European Cup. ”

“This kind of thing is impossible because we are going to finish [the season], then after one week the World Cup then after three weeks we go to the pre-season, we go to China, the States, Australia,”

So far, nothing has been said by FA regarding this matter, but we believe nothing shall come of it apart from a few confused faces towards Guardiola.

The Reality of Internet Dating

The Reality of ‘Hook Up’ apps:

In 2013 the reported crimes (in England and Wales) of any dating apps were 55; according to the Freedom of Information Act. The number spiked to 204 in 2014, only to jump again to 412 in 2015. The amount of people who use dating apps is rising every day and with that rises the risk. The most common reports that police get are violent or sexual crimes, which includes grooming, rapes, and the sexual exploitation of children.

The dangers of using apps like Tinder are horrific, as Angela Jay learnt. Angela was savagely attacked by a man she met on Tinder, he stabbed and doused in petrol. Allegedly, he had gone to her home before and waited her for her to arrive from work before his attack. The 28 year old doctor was attacked as she ended their brief relationship, which Paul Lambert (the attacker) was not happy about. He blew up her phone with threatening and abusive messages, such as “You’re are not safe in that house… I have some of the house keys.” Angela actually had a restraining order on the man, yet that meant nothing to him. After she was stabbed repeatedly, she dragged her body to the neighbour’s house.  He tried to flee but was caught on the highway. The strangest thing is that it was most out of character for Lambert, which comes to show how the internet shows a different side to people, one you would never imagine.

This is only one of the many stories that show a different side to dating apps. All you see are the ‘success stories’ of how someone found their ‘soul mate’ on Tinder, yet the reality of it all may be harder to grasp, as it is much, much worse.

Anthony against Klitschko?

Anthony Joshua’s fight against Eric Molina was a breeze for Joshua. It was a hard hitting brawl between two beasts where Joshua came out on top. After three rounds, Joshua knocked out Molina.

Molina must of been looking for Anthony Joshua not to turn up fit and catch him off guard with a knock out punch, but sadly for Molina, Joshua brought the fight to him. With Joshua clean sweeping Molina, is Klitschko next to face Joshua?

Joshua says money will never get to his head with the quotes “Fighters can lose their way after tasting a bit of success but it’s not about the money, it’s about class,” and “It’s about morals, how much you conduct yourself. Glitz and glamour doesn’t come into it. I don’t live in luxury, I’m still at home with my mum!”

So will Joshua get Kiltschko or will he have to go through someone else?

Are we living in an alternate universe?

We could be living in another universe

Do you happen to know the song ‘We are the Champions’ by Queen? If so, just sing the end line of the song.

Did you happen to sing, ‘We are the champions of the world’? Well, that’s not how the song ends. This is one example of the Mandela Effect.

The Mandela effect was discovered by Fionna Broom in 2010. The “Mandela Effect” is what happens when someone has a clear memory of something that never happened in this reality. The Mandela effect is the theory that as well as parallel universes existing we switch between them all the time without realising.

Ask yourself these 3 simple question:

  • What does Darth Vader say to Luke when he reveals he is he father?
  • In Snow White, is the famous line “Mirror mirror on the Wall”?
  • Febreeze or Febreze?

 

Here are the answers:

  • “Luke, I am your father.”
  • No, it’s “magic mirror on the wall”.
  • Febreze

 

Did you get them right?

There are many other explanations to suggest there isn’t a Mandela effect and that we are not living in an alternate universe.

For example, humans love repetition and it is psychologically proven to enchant the brain. This can explain why so many people remember the end as ‘We are the champions of the world’.

Another explanation is that certain famous phrases would have been passed down centuries so people might have recited the phrases incorrectly meaning everyone  remembers it a particular way. For example “Mirror mirror on the wall” is the phrase that most people of the past 3 decades use but older people remember it as the original, “Magic mirror on the wall”.

What do you believe? Do you think we’re living in an alternate universe?
