Apple CEO- Tim Cook Publicly Confirms He is GAY | Says ‘I’m Proud to Be Gay’

Posted on 30 Oct 2014 at 12:52pm

Yesterday, Apple CEO Tim Cook publicly confirmed he is gay in an article he wrote for Bloomberg Businessweek, making him the highest-profile chief executive to come out.  He stated among other things that, he has been open about his sexual orientation with colleagues at Apple and other people close to him, but has never previously acknowledged his sexual orientation.

In the article in which Cook advocated for human rights and equality, he said he was inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King to set aside his desire for privacy to do something “more important.”

“While I have never denied my sexuality, I haven’t publicly acknowledged it either, until now,” writes Cook. “So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.”  (more…)

Sexist English FA Chief Who Said Women’s Place is in The Kitchen, Not on the Pitch is SUSPENDED Yet Bishop Duncan Williams is Being Defended for the Same Bigotry By Women

Posted on 30 Oct 2014 at 12:22pm

I’ve already written a piece on Archbishop Duncan Williams’ recent ludicrous statements from the pulpit which degrade women—and subject them to gross contempt (Click Here to Read It).

Interestingly, there is bigotry everywhere in the world and it can be found in every discipline-be it religion or sports. But the difference is; in a civilized society like United Kingdom, sexists have no place—and are instantly placed where they belong.

According to reports; a senior Football Association official of Northumberland County in UK-Mr Cummings who allegedly told a female referee ‘your place is in the kitchen, and not on a football field’ has been suspended for four months.

Even in sports, misogynists have no place—yet in the house of the Lord, they are defended, sadly by the same women such men demean. (more…)

Stigmatisation is always one of the biggest hindrances to fighting off an epidemic, and since the Ebola hit there has been several incidents lumping people from Africa into one bracket and treating them like they all have Ebola.

The latest incident involves two Senegalese American kids, who got beaten and called names at school just because they were unfortunate to have African ancestry, despite being born in the United States just like the ignorant kids who attacked them. (more…)

Posted on 27 Oct 2014 at 5:54pm

There are rich men, and then there are RICH MEN. There can be no doubt which category Kanye West belongs to.

The Hip Hop mogul received an offer to perform in Las Vegas for a total of three nights a week for three weeks, in return for which he would earn $4.5million.

He turned it down.

It would be good to one day have so much money I can turn down such an offer without batting an eye. Its not really surprising though, Mr West had always been an eccentric genius. (more…)

Oscar Pistorius Sentenced to 5 Years in Prison

Posted on 21 Oct 2014 at 8:54am

After a long trial and sentencing hearing, paralympian -Oscar Pistorius has been thrown into prison for 5 years today for killing his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Judge Thokozile Masipa during the sentencing few minutes ago said; “Having regard to the circumstances in the matter, I am of the view that a non-custodial sentence would send the wrong message to the community,”

“On the other hand, a long sentence would also not be appropriate either, as it would lack the element of mercy” she said.

The 27-year-old, who was found guilty of culpable homicide last month, gave little visible reaction as the sentence was handed down. (more…)

We think Ama K. Abebrese fits well in London and she should consider moving back—as she looks less stressed when in UK and  you can see from the photo above that she also looks well put together.

Photos of her out and about in Ghana mostly come up as though she was in a rush to step out—affecting her general outlook and also, she hardly come up as relaxed.

Anyway, over the weekend Ama K. Abebrese caught up with Ghanaian actor-Kofi Adjorlolo who is currently in London too and they shared a Kodak moment.
