Gold for Team GB

British sailors, Giles Scott (Finn), Alison Young (Laser Radial) and Luke Patience and Chris Grube (420) bring home three gold medals. Scott began the day with an astonishing and nearly unstoppable 19-point lead. Scott showed no sign of letting off and claimed his gold medal in his first world cup race since the Olympics.

Alison Young had an advantage of 5 points and a second place in the medal race was enough to assure her victory and another medal for GB.
Like the rest of the team, Patience and Grube completely dominated the regatta with an impressive 17-point lead before entering Sunday’s races.
However, European champion Nick Thompson received a bronze medal for his efforts after German rival Phillip Buhl overtook him.

James Bulger Killer Jailed Once Again.

Over 20 years ago a toddler with the name of James Bulger was brutally killed and tortured by two 10 year old boys, Jon Venables and Robert Thompson. It was a murder that shook the nation and still continues to do so over 2 decades later.

Jon Venables and Robert Thompson had spent at least a minimum of 8 years in prison after countless trials and protests by the public. It was only in 2001 when they were given lifelong anonymity and were allowed to go out on licence.

However, Jon Venables had abused that freedom and has been once again sent to prison after admitting ownership of over 1,000 indecent images on children aged 6-13 years although there were claims that some were younger.

Police also found a handbook on Venables’ person called the “Jazz guide” which taught abusers how to have sexual intercourse with children “safely”.

The prosecutor told the court: “The manual is a disgusting and sickening document which falls far below any recognisable standard of morality.”

Police have also investigated the situation and have reported that Venables had an illegal software which allowed him to browse the dark web, which all of the photos had come from. Nearly 400 photos were cast as Category A (the most serious), over 140 were cast as Category B, and the rest were all labelled as Category C.

Venables seems to have regretted his inappropriate actions as a source has said that he is asking for forgiveness from everyone that he is hurt and anyone he’s caused distress. It doesn’t seem to have worked as he has now been labelled a potential threat to children and adults everywhere.

Jon Venables has now been given a prison sentence and has also been on the recieving end of a sexual harm prevention order.

Social Influencers

Being a Social Influencer is a big deal.

For example, Selena Gomez.

Selena Gomez is a global superstar. She is the most followed person on Instagram (133 million and counting.) Her Social platform is a great way to spread awareness about certain topics towards millions of people, which is exactly what she does.

DACA, aka ‘Dreamers’, has been a big issue recently and Selena posted about it supporting it.  She also wore a ‘we are all dreamers’ shirt while behind the scenes.

She has lupus. So, to raise awareness about the disease she donated a lot of money to research. They have raised around $500,000 ever since Selena spoke about it and proceeds from her very high grossing tour went to lupus research.

She and her mother, Mandy, produced a very big TV programme called ‘13 reasons why’ which creates awareness about suicide, which has been a very big problem recently.

She has supported charities like the ‘Step up foundation’ which is about empowerment and fulfilling ones potential. The ‘We movement’ which is where the younger generation (around 16,000 people) come together to talk about social issues and making a better world. They have a ‘we day’ every year and Selena has hosted it 4 times and she has been supporting this movement for a while.

Unicef (The United Nations Children Fund) is quite a large and global charity.  Selena has been a UNICEF ambassador since 2009 and is the youngest ambassador there has ever been.  She has been to places like Nepal, which is a LIC (low income country) and has given money and supported the cause to help the most unfortunate of people.

Recently, there has been a lot of cases to do with sexual assault. There has been a very well known movement called ‘Time’s Up’ which is to create awareness and fight against sexual assault. Selena was one of the first to post about it on Instagram to spread the message and she anonymously donated $1 Million to the movement which is the biggest amount a celebrity has donated.

Here are a few more charities, which she has supported:

  • 10×10
  • Alliance for Children’s Rights
  • Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
  • Make a Wish Foundation
  • Stand Up To Cancer
  • Malala Fund
  • The Salvation Army
  • Teen Cancer America
  • Free the Children
  • ENOUGH Project
  • ALS Association

There are about 15+ charities/foundations that she has worked with.

We need more social influencers to create awareness about these types of topic to a wide audience and make a difference to improve our world and to get more people involved.

We need more people like Selena.

Clash of the Politics!

Ann Coulter and Piers Morgan have a fierce debate 

This morning on iTV, Piers Morgan had a harsh argument with Ann Coulter about the 3-4 million Muslims being forced out of America. Ann Coulter suggests that America’s welfare is just for Americans and the mentally ill and thieves shouldn’t be allowed in the U.S.

“Why do we need them?” Ann conservatively said.

Ann Coulter said this with a sharp tone and a very discriminative meaning. She was basically saying that America doesn’t need immigrants to come and work; she thinks America isn’t poor and has enough people working for the citizens. She agrees with Trump’s actions and believes that all Muslims should be made to leave. Ann agrees with Trump and decides to back him up.

vs

 Ann carries on with her outrageous speech and decides to carry on with her racist and discriminative argument.

 “Even before they started shooting, what are the point of Sayeed Farouk’s parents? His father was a truck driver.  Americans can drive trucks,” Ann stated.

“Maybe it would be slightly more helpful to deport you Ann Coulter,” said Piers with determination.

“Is that your argument?” Ann stated astonished. “No, that’s a good-bye,” said Piers with relief.

Apparently, Ann and Morgan have had other, “Clashes,” before, so this is no surprise. They had this argument because they both have very different views on this subject Ann is going along with Trump and Piers disagrees. Who is right? What do you think?

 

On Planet Nine

space

Astronomers at The California Institute of Technology (CALTECH) claim to have evidence that, in our Solar System, there is a ninth planet orbiting the sun, even further away than Pluto.

It is thought to be a Super Earth, meaning that it is the between the sizes of Earth and Neptune, a category that many planets outside our Solar System fall into. Their calculations reveal that Planet X orbits 20 times farther from the sun than Neptune (the current outermost planet); this means that it should take around 15,000 years to complete one full circle around our star.

The team have yet to find physical evidence of the new planet but if true, it will have 10 times the mass of Earth. With their theories being published worldwide, the CALTECH scientists are sure that people will begin to search for Planet Nine and therefore help with their research.

Dr Brown, one of the astronomers said:

“The most distant objects all swing out in one direction in a very strange way that shouldn’t happen, and we realised the only way we could get them to swing in one direction is if there is a massive planet, also very distant in the Solar System, keeping them in place while they all go around the Sun,”

Many other well-known scientists agree with the team’s findings, saying that the layout of the Solar System and the planet’s sizes suggests that a planet, around the size of Earth and Mars, could be a possibility.

However, NASA’s chief scientist, Dr Ellen Stofan says that she needs physical, telescopic evidence before she believes CALTECH.  She does agree that the evidence and research gathered does imply that there’s an undiscovered planet.

So what do you think? Is there another planet? Or are the CALTECH astronomers on cloud nine for nothing?

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!
