Be Inspired by Annie~Joy: Doing The Worse To Get To The Top

Everyone wants to be recognized in his or her society. Some of our predecessor did the worse to get to the top so now everyone  thinks it's right to do same to reach there. We are living in a society whereby some people got known by insulting one leader in the state. Some got known by posing half naked pictures on the social media.
Some got known by having some relationship to do with the producers, the lecturers ,the managers etc to get pushed. Forgetting there are records made about every individual's action in the society. You may not know how but there is. Today, some of them have gotten to the top they imagine themselves to be with the higher social prestige which they want to call on for respect. Whom are you demanding the respect from? Because the records you made to gain that status you are having today is not appealing.
Some of them are at the top yielding for respect but the truth of the matter is; they can't have it due to the pattern they took to r…

Man follows bride and groom as they walk down the aisle during Brazilian wedding…then pulls out a gun & starts shooting at guests

A couple's wedding day is expected to be the happiest day of their lives, but that was not so for a couple in Brazil whose wedding was disrupted by a gun-toting, trigger-happy intruder.

Hardly had the bride and groom walked down the aisle to stand in front of the altar when the man, who marched in behind the couple, lifted his t-shirt, brought out a gun and began shooting.
Guests and the couple scattered in different directions while some guests were brought down by the bullet.

Umberto Ferreira dos Santos, known by his nickname Betinho, opened fire at guests at the ceremony inside a church in Limoeiro de Anadia.

He was plotting to take out a father and son in a revenge attack over the death of his own boy, it was claimed.
62-year-old man Cícero Barbosa da Silva, and his 37-year-old son, Edmilson Bezerra da Silva, who were supposed to stand in as witnesses at the wedding were both shot. They were rushed to the hospital and have reportedly been stabilised. The gunman fled af…

#Trending Lol, A Kenyan man claims Akufo-Addo is Trump's half brother

Okay, you've probably guessed it. This isn't Donald Trump's Kenyan half-brother.
But that hasn't stopped the internet having a good laugh at this man's uncannily Trump-esque locks. When the photo was shared on American comedian and radio host Ricky Smiley's Facebook page back in January, hundreds joined in on the comments, and thousands more shared the post.

And that's not the only comedy meme. Another makes the claim that the man in the photo is one 'Nyirongo Trump' of Malawi.

But who is the man in the memes? Well, we've had a dig round and we've deduced his identity. Are you ready?
It is in fact Ghanaian president Nana Akufo-Addo.
A reverse image search on the meme led Trending to the original - unphotoshopped image - where he is seen greeting a celebrity supporter of his New Patriotic Party (NPP), Ghanaian actor Kofi Adu.
So how many have picked up on the man's true identity?
On the original Rickey Smiley show Facebook post, out o…

Arnold Schwarzenegger says immigration ban ‘makes us look stupid’

Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is the latest high-profile celebrity to strongly criticize Donald Trump’s executive order banning immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries.
“I think the real problem is that it was vetted badly,” the actor told Extra. “If they would run this by the Justice Department and Homeland Security and had the lawyers really study and focus on it and give it some time to do it the right way… I know what he’s trying to accomplish — his fear about people coming in from other places, causing harm to the country. There is another way to going about it to do it the right way and accomplish all of the goals. I think they were hasty with it.”

Schwarzenegger himself is an immigrant who came to the U.S. from his native Austria nearly 50 years ago.
“To go and ban people who have a green card, that means that the United States of America has given you permission to work here permanently and you are on the way to permanent citizenship,” he contin…

Once Brazil's richest man, he has been accused of paying millions of dollars in bribes to secure contracts with Rio's state government.
Mr Batista has denied any wrongdoing.
He has promised to help the authorities in their efforts to tackle corruption which he says is widespread in Brazil. 
Before boarding the plane and turning himself in to police, Mr Batista said he was returning to Brazil to clear his name.
"I'm at the disposal of the courts," he told O Globo newspaper in New York. "As a Brazilian, I am doing my duty."
Under Brazilian law, Mr Batista would have been sent to a special prison wing if he had a university degree. 
But as he dropped out before finishing his engineering degree in Germany, he will be serving time in an ordinary cell with six other inmates at the Bangu penitentia…

Trump Fires Acting Attorney General After She Defies Him on Immigration Ban

U.S. President Donald Trump fired the federal government's top lawyer Sally Yates on Monday after she took the extraordinarily rare step of defying the White House and refused to defend new travel restrictions targeting seven Muslim-majority nations.
Yates said late on Monday that the Justice Department would not defend in court Trump's directive that put a 120-day hold on allowing refugees into the country, an indefinite ban on refugees from Syria and a 90-day bar on citizens from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
Yates said she did not believe defending the order would be "consistent with this institution's solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right."
Hours later, she was fired. The White House said Yates "has betrayed the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States" and portrayed her actions as political.
Trump has argued tougher vet…
