50,000 flee storm in PhilippinesMANILA (AFP) – Some 50,000 people were in evacuation centres in the Philippines on Friday after fleeing their homes following days of torrential rains caused by Tropical Storm Meari, officials said.
More than 3,200 people fled their homes overnight in the capital Manila alone as the storm added to seasonal monsoon rains, bringing massive flooding to city streets, the civil defence agency said.
The swift evacuation of Manila residents as the waters rose overnight prevented any deaths, said Benito Ramos, executive director of the official National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.
"It is a good thing we pre-positioned rubber boats. Thankfully, people reacted well. When we told them to evacuate, they evacuated," Ramos said.
However 11 people were still missing in or near the less-developed Bicol peninsula southeast of Manila that bore the brunt of Meari as it brushed past the eastern side of this country, the council added.
The missing included 10 fishermen who ventured out to sea from the island of Catanduanes before Meari struck and a woman swept away by flash flooding in another part of Bicol, a council said.
The rains, which have been falling for most of the week, intensified on Thursday, forcing people to flee their homes, fearing floods and landslides.
Most schools in and around Manila cancelled classes on Friday due to the flooding with debris blocking many streets, authorities said.
Science Department Undersecretary Graciano Yumul said that rain would further intensify over the main island of Luzon where Manila is located, even though the storm was moving away from the Philippines towards Taiwan.
The government weather station reported that Meari had strengthened as it moved northwest towards Taiwan, with gusts of 100 kilometres (60 miles) per hour.

JUSTIN BIEBER ATTACKED AT MACY'S APPEARANCE

Rest easy, Selena Gomez: Beliebers have a new death threat target. A man hopped a barricade outside Macy’s in New York City’s Herald Square and knocked Justin Bieber to the ground. The Biebs is making the rounds in NYC today to promote his new perfume for girls, Someday.

"Gonna chill... grab a bite... then see everyone at MACY's for the #SOMEDAY launch. LEGGO!!" Bieber tweeted before the event.

While there, he decided to go outside to greet fans that couldn’t get into the store for his appearance -- and that’s when an adult man scaled a barricade and knocked Bieber to the ground, according to WABC."It was a momentary, well-intentioned misunderstanding and the event went well," Bieber's rep told The New York Post. "He’s completely fine and has no injuries."

When the pop star was rushed back into the store, one of his security guards apparently wouldn't get out of the way and was issued a citation for disorderly conduct, the NYPD said.

Initial reports, which the NYPD shot down, said that Bieber was accosted by a man in his 40s who hopped the barricade.



A man jumped over a metal barrier and knocked Bieber to the ground. A local affiliate has the story (above). Justin is said to be alright, just shaken up.
According to some online reports, the individual was actually an undercover police officer who was trying to protect the Biebs.

Reggae star Buju Banton gets 10 years in drug case

Buju BantonAP – FILE - Buju Banton poses at the Source Hip-Hop Music Awards in this Oct. 13, 2003, file photo in Miami. …

Preston acknowledged it was a sad day for Banton's fans but noted the distinction between the joyful reggae artist Buju Banton and the drug dealer Mark Myrie.
"He has brought this sadness to these people," Preston said in court, acknowledging Banton's supporters who filled the gallery. Preston declined to comment afterward.
Preston argued during trial that Banton portrayed himself as a broker of drug deals in several conversations with a confidential informant. Preston said Banton thought he was getting involved in a "no-risk" deal in which he would introduce a friend to a confidential informant and then collect money from drug transactions.
Prosecutors acknowledged that Banton did not put any money into the drug deal nor did he ever profit from it. Markus characterized his client as "a big talker" who admitted to trying to impress the confidential informant but wasn't involved in any drug deal.
Much of the case hinged on meetings and phone calls that were video- and audiotaped by the informant, who was working with the Drug Enforcement Administration — and who made $50,000 in commission after the bust.
In one video, Banton could be seen tasting cocaine in a Sarasota warehouse on Dec. 8, 2009. But he was not present during the actual drug deal on Dec. 10 that led two others to be arrested. Those two men later pleaded guilty.
Banton testified that the informant badgered him after they met on a trans-Atlantic flight in July 2009 and insisted they meet to set up a cocaine purchase. He said he was so uninterested in the informant's proposals that after they met twice, Banton didn't return the man's phone calls for months.
Markus said he plans to appeal.
"This fight is not over," Markus said. "We will keep fighting for him. Mark Myrie is my brother, and I'm going to keep fighting until they tell me to stop."
Among the dozens of letters of support in the court file were those from several of Banton's 15 children wrote, a Jamaican government official, an NBA player, other reggae artists and actor Danny Glover, who called Banton a "role model, philanthropist and spiritual leader in the community."
"Your honor, Mark Myrie is not a drug dealer," Glover wrote. "Society would not benefit from his incarceration."
Banton's oldest son, also named Mark Myrie, wrote that his father "puts hard work, sweat and tears into his music and that is what (he) `puts on the table,' it has never been drugs....The situation is just an example of our mere imperfections as people, being at the wrong place at the wrong time."
Banton remains wildly popular in Jamaica, and his trial — his second over the drug accusations — was packed with supporters that included other well-known reggae artists. The first trial ended in a mistrial last year after the jury deadlocked.
Shortly before his conviction in February, he won a Grammy for best reggae album for his work entitled "Before the Dawn."

Reclusive copper heiress leaves $38 million to nurse

A reclusive copper heiress who spent the past decades living in New York City hospitals has left most of her $400 million fortune to charity--and a nurse who was randomly assigned to care for her 20 years ago.
The New York Post reports that Huguette Clark did not leave a penny to her family members. The lion's share of her fortune will go to a foundation to promote the arts. She left the biggest chunk of the remaining inheritance--a testament worth about $38 million--to her private nurse, Hadassah Peri. She also left Peri her collection of dolls and dollhouses, which The New York Times says could be worth millions.
Clark, who died last month at 104, divided up the rest of her assets among her accountant, her lawyer, a physician and a goddaughter. Authorities are investigating whether the lawyer, Wallace Bock, and her accountant, Irving Kamsler, inappropriately influenced how Clark handled her money. (According to the Post, Kamsler pleaded guilty in 2008 of attempting to send indecent images to underage girls online.)
For her part, Peri says she will cherish her inheritance in honor of her friendship with Clark--and give a substantial portion of it away, in emulation of Clark's own will. "I saw Madame Clark virtually every day for the 20 years. I was her private duty nurse but also her close friend. I knew her as a kind and generous person, with whom I shared many wonderful moments and whom I loved very much," the nurse said in a statement to the Post.
Clark was the daughter of Montana Sen. William Clark, who was once the second-richest man in the country. According to Clark's will, her nurse spent more time with her than anyone else and became a "friend and loyal companion," The Post reported. Clark had no children, and specified in her will that she had no interest in leaving money to the descendants of her half-siblings or other relatives.
She is also donating a painting in Claude Monet's famous Water Lillies series to the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C. It has not been publicly seen since the 1920s.

California Mom Accused of Killing Her Baby in Microwave




A 29-year-old woman was arrested for burning her newborn baby to death in a microwave oven.

According to report, the Sacramento police were notified when a 6-week-old child was found suffering from unusual burn marks.
When questioned by police, the child's mother, Ka Yang, told officers she was holding her daughter, when she suffered a seizure and blacked out. She said when she regained consciousness and her daughter was not breathing.

The baby was was found dead in the family home.

After a three-month investigation, authorities discovered that the baby most likely died from burns suffered in a microwave. The baby suffered second - and third -degree burns to her left ear, cheek, hand and shoulder. Part of her left ear had to be amputated, and she required several skin grafts.After a three-month investigation that included consulting with several medical professionals, forensic specialists, and government agencies, it was determined Mirabelle died as a result of being burned in a microwave oven, according to the station.

"Even when people hear the story they don't believe it," said Sacramento Police Sgt. Norm Leong, reports the station. "The injuries aren't seen that often. In fact, we couldn't find three other cases in the nation that had injuries caused by a microwave.

The arrest warrant also showed Yang's polygraph test found that she was deceptive. She told investigators she might have a split personality.

Yang's other three children have been ordered into the custody of her grandparents.Yang is now facing multiple murder charges.

Tsunami Warning In Effect After Magnitude 6.7 Earthquake Hits Japan's Coast

Tsunami Warning In Effect After Magnitude 6.7 Earthquake Hits Japan's Coast

An earthquake with a 6.7 magnitude struck off the east coast of Japan, near Honshu, early Thursday morning.
The Japanese Meteorological Agency warned that a tsunami about one-half meter (20 inches) could follow, CNN is reporting.
The quake struck in many of the same areas that were hit hard by the March earthquake and tsunami that left more than 23,000 dead or missing in Japan, AFP reports."The slower pace of recovery reflects in part factors that are likely to be temporary, including the damping effect of higher food and energy prices on consumer purchasing power and spending as well as supply-chain disruptions associated with the tragic events in Japan," the Fed said in a statement at the conclusion of a two-day meeting.

As widely expected, the Fed said it will maintain interest rates at exceptionally low levels for an extended period. It also confirmed it was ending its $600-billion bond-buying programme at the end of the month, while reiterating that it will continue to reinvest principal payments from its holdings.

The Fed downgraded its view of the labour market, saying it had been "weaker than anticipated". That contrasted with the statement after its last meeting in April when it said the job market was "improving gradually".



A central component of most US families' wealth - remains mired in a deep slump.

With jobs uncertain and home values falling, consumer spending, which makes up around 70% of US GDP, has lagged. Retail sales declined in May for the first time in 11 months. Factory activity has been sluggish as well.

The economy grew at just a 1.8% annualised rate in the first three months of the year. Analysts expect growth in the second quarter to log a rate of about 2%, still not sufficient to generate a big increase in hiring.

Mattek-Sands arrives at Wimbledon match in Gaga-esque jacket


Mattek-Sands arrives at Wimbledon match in Gaga-esque jacket

Bethanie Mattek-Sands told Busted Racquet last week that she had a fashion surprise in store at Wimbledon. Did she ever. The 31st-ranked American walked onto Court 14 on Wednesday for her first-round match wearing a white bolero jacket festooned with spikes and cutouts of white tennis balls. The piece was designed by Alex Noble, who works with Lady Gaga and designed Mattek-Sands' memorable yellow dress for the Wimbledon player's party.

There's so much going on with that jacket that it's like a fashion Rorschach test; it's inspiration in the eye of the beholder. There's some Annie Oakley in it (the tassles), a few dabs of Oakland Raiders (the spikes and the eye black) and a touch of Virginia Wade (the white tennis balls which, for some reason, I associate with the 1975 Wimbledon champion). This is what a member of Gwar would wear to a Roger Federermatch.

Meet the man who’s re-creating Noah’s Ark



Inspired by a dark dream, Dutchman is building massive vessel to biblical proportions. 

While Noah will likely always remain the first name in arks, tourists are chomping at the bit to climb aboard “Johan’s Ark,” an ambitious re-creation of the biblical boat that’s attracting gawkers galore along a waterfront shipyard in Dordrecht, a city in the western Netherlands.
Dutch builder Johan Huibers is expected to complete work on the massive vessel sometime next month in what has been a staggeringly ambitious project to bring one of the best-known stories of the Bible to life. It’s taken three years of his life and $1.6 million out of his pocket, but Huibers, owner of a successful construction company in Holland, says the project is a dream come true — literally.
“I dreamed a part of Holland was flooded,” Huibers, 60, told Janet Shamlian in a report that aired on TODAY Wednesday. “Then, the next day I get the idea to build an ark of Noah.”

“Johan’s Ark” clocks in at 450 feet long, true to the Bible’s account of a 300 cubit-long ship (in ancient times, a cubit was the length of a man’s arm from elbow to fingertips, or roughly 18 inches). The ark weighs in at a whopping 2,970 tons, and is constructed of Swedish pine, which Huibers told The New York Times is in keeping with God’s command to Noah that the ark be built of resin wood.
Biblical proportions That dream occurred 20 years ago, and Huibers has been ark-obsessed ever since. Despite his wife’s misgivings, he built an ark in 2004 that was roughly half the size of the specifications listed in the Bible. He guided the craft through the myriad canals of the Netherlands, and it proved such a hit among tourists, who were charged seven bucks apiece to climb aboard, that it financed Huibers’ true dream — building an ark every bit as big as Noah’s.

Belfast riots: Video of Irish youths attacking police vans

Belfast riots: Video of Irish youths attacking police vans

Dissident republicans were responsible for the shooting of a newspaper photographer during riots in Belfast Tuesday night, police said Wednesday.
Police clashed with hundreds of rioters in eastern Belfast on Tuesday in the second straight night of violence between Catholics and Protestants there.
About 700 people amassed in the streets Tuesday night, the Police Service of Northern Ireland said. Molotov cocktails, fireworks and bricks were thrown, police said."The council will work with the Assembly, community and church leaders, elected politicians and statutory agencies to try to ensure a society that can live in safety and at peace with their neighbours.

Councillor Ó Donnghaile said Sinn Féin, DUP, SDLP, Alliance Party and Progressive Unionist Party, who all attended the meeting, were committed to finding long term solutions by exploring why trouble had broken out.

Meanwhile Presbyterian Moderator Dr Ivan Patterson has called for parents to keep their children off their streets and help prevent another night of "appalling" rioting.

Dr Patterson met with the minister of Westbourne Presbyterian Church, Rev Mervyn Gibson and residents in the affected area.



The act strengthens the powers available to district councils to deal with fly-posting and a number of other local environmental quality problems," the statement said.

"Through the act the department has responded positively to calls made by district councils over the past few years to give them a robust set of powers to tackle such problems effectively.

"It is the department's intention to bring the act into operation in April 2012 once the necessary subordinate legislation and supporting guidance has been put in place.

BREAKING NEWS! FIFA report: Warner an accessory to corruption

There is “comprehensive, convincing and overwhelming” evidence that FIFA member Mohamed Bin Hammam tried to bribe officials during his presidential campaign and that Jack Warner was “an accessory to corruption”, according to a secret report by FIFA’s ethics committee.

FIFA announced on Monday that Warner had resigned as FIFA vice-president and quit all football activities, and the world governing body said they had dropped all investigations into him and that “the presumption of innocence is maintained”.

But the full report of the ethics committee headed by Namibian judge Petrus Damaseb which provisionally suspended Warner and Bin Hammam on May 29 says there was “prima facie” evidence that bribes had been paid to officials to support Bin Hammam’s campaign for the FIFA presidency, and that Warner had facilitated this.

The pair – two of the three most powerful men in world football – were suspended last month pending a full inquiry. Bin Hammam withdrew as a candidate against Sepp Blatter on the morning of his ethics committee hearing on May 29. Both he and Warner have consistently denied any wrongdoing.

The 17-page ethics committee document setting out their decision was faxed to Warner last week, on June 14, and three days later he informed FIFA he was resigning.

A copy of that report has now been obtained by the Press Association. It concludes that there was “compelling” evidence that Bin Hammam and Warner arranged a special meeting of the 25 members of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) on May 10 and 11 in Trinidad and that, with their knowledge, cash gifts were handed over.

Statements from witnesses, described as “credible and correspondent” in the report, said they were handed brown envelopes each containing 40,000 US dollars. One of the witnesses, Fred Lunn from the Bahamas, photographed the cash before returning it.

Four witnesses stated that Warner told the CFU delegates on May 11 that the “money for the ’gifts’ allegedly distributed the day before had been apparently provided by Mr Bin Hammam”, the document states.

Warner’s evidence to the May 29 hearing is described as “mere self-serving declarations” and that he “failed to provide the FIFA ethics committee with a plausible explanation”.

The report states: “The comprehensive, convincing and overwhelming evidence permits to conclude prima facie that the accused [Warner] has initiated and arranged a special meeting of the CFU member associations for Mr Bin Hammam.

“Furthermore on the occasion of this meeting it seems Mr Bin Hammam offered, at least indirectly and under the pledge of secrecy, to each of the member associations an envelope containing US$40,000.

“The FIFA ethics committee is of the primary opinion that the accused [Warner] had knowledge of the respective payments and condoned them.

“It seems quite likely that the accused [Warner] contributed himself to the relevant actions, thereby acting as an accessory to corruption.”

The report adds: “The committee is also of the opinion that the respective money gifts can probably only be explained if they are associated with the FIFA presidential elections of 1 June 2011.

“Therefore it appears rather compelling to consider the actions of Mr Bin Hammam constitute prima facie an act of bribery, or at least an attempt to commit bribery.

“It appears prima facie impossible, in the opinion of the FIFA ethics committee, that the accused [Warner] could have considered the money distributed... as legally or ethically proper and without any connection to the upcoming FIFA presidential election.

“Consequently, the accused would at least be considered as an accessory to the aforementioned violations.”

The ethics committee report goes on to say that the facts “eventually lead to the primary conclusion that Mr Bin Hammam appears to have intended to influence the voting behaviour of the CFU member associations on the occasion of the FIFA presidential elections in his favour.”

The revelations contained in the secret report have provoked a call for FIFA to re-open the case against Warner.

Damian Collins, the Tory MP who is campaigning for a reform of FIFA, said: “This makes FIFA’s claim that Jack Warner can be presumed innocent absolutely incredible. I believe Jack Warner should be made to answer these charges – it’s not enough just for him to resign.

“This shows it was a big error of judgement by Sepp Blatter to call off the inquiry and cover this up.

“FIFA should also confirm that Mohamed Bin Hammam should not similarly be allowed to resign in return for having the investigation dropped.”

There have been reports that Warner is entitled to around €22,000 a year as pension from FIFA and Collins also called for the organisation to state that he is not eligible for such payments.

Bin Hammam said in a statement: “There is nothing I can say more than I deny the allegations and insist that I have not done anything wrong during the special Congress at Trinidad.”

World's oldest woman dies in Brazil at age 114

(AP)
SAO PAULO - A Brazilian woman listed by Guinness World Records as the world's oldest person has died — just weeks shy of her 115th birthday.

Maria Gomes Valentim died Tuesday morning in the southeastern city of Carangola. Helerson Lima of the Carangola senior home facility says Valentim died of multiple organ failure.

On May 18, Guinness determined that Valentim was 48 days older than the person previously considered the world's oldest human, Besse Cooper of Monroe, Ga.

Guinness verified that Valentim was born July 9, 1896, in Carangola, where she lived all her life.

She married her husband, Joao, in 1913. He died in 1946.

Valentim is survived by four grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and five great-great grandchildren. Her son died at age 75.

Valentim attributed her longevity to eating a daily roll of bread for breakfast along with fruit — though she indulged in the occasional nip of wine.

The Most Shocking And Saddest Part Of Fashion Industry


The Most Shocking And Saddest Part Of Fashion Industry
Although all of us want to be slim and fit, especially for the ramp models. Almost all of the ladies in this world believe that the only way to stay and look beautiful is to look thin and slim. And dieting seems to be the only way to reach your “look-slim” goal. But that “look-slim” goal just may not get turned to “look-thin” goal. What I mean, is dieting to a limit can make you look good and happening but dieting too much may just make you skinny and look not so good as you may think.
Here are some model’s, maybe from US, Europe, Russia or elsewhere, doesn’t matter, who tried “extreme” dieting to just get the perfect look but ended up looking a little or massively thinner and skinny.
But they didn’t stopped here itself. In her quest to get a “size-zero” figure literally, she overcame and out broke all her body limits and here is what she looks like now :
Its Good Most Of The Countries Banned The Skinny Model And Other Country Following Them
So if you’re not convinced by looking at these pictures that dieting can literally make you “invisible” and extreme-dieting like they did must be avoided. What’s the point in looking beautiful and money you earn when you cannot enjoy your favorite KFC’s chicken wings or McD’s jumbo sized chicken burger or triple scoop of your favorite ice cream flavor.
