Tokyo man arrested over stalking woman using her pupils!

The world seems to get crazier and crazier every day. There are some things that are strange occurrence-and then some things are so creepy it’s hard to believe they’re real. That’s exactly the case involving a Tokyo man who was arrested for allegedly stalking a pop star by using her pupils to locate her whereabouts using Google Street View.

Tokyo police declined to comment on the specifics of the investigation but confirmed Friday that 26-year-old Hibiki Sato was arrested Sept. 17 on suspicion of indecent behavior in connection with stalking and causing injuries to the 20-year-old woman.

The police official, who spoke on condition of anonymity as is often policy at Japanese bureaucracies, said the case was related to the reports about a stalker and pupil images.

Police described Sato as an “avid fan.”

Public broadcaster NHK and other Japanese media reported this week that details in the woman’s selfies were used to identify the train station she frequented. They said Sato looked at other images she shared, such as her apartment, to figure out where she lived.

Police say he hurt her and committed indecent acts, such as groping her after accosting her from behind and knocking her down.

Tokyo Shimbun, a metropolitan daily, which reported on the stalking case, warned readers even casual selfies may show surrounding buildings that will allow people to identify the location of the photos.

Picha inayohusiana

 

Other effects include;

Lung cancer

Smoke is the greatest threat to the lungs. This is because it infects the oxygenated air leading to breathing problems.

Smokers of light cigarettes suffer same fate as those who use traditional ones

Infertility

This negatively affects men ability to perform in bed, while it can cause cervical cancer for women.

Blood clotting 

Smoke can cause blood clotting as it invades the blood vessels. This lowers the rate at which blood circulation occurs in the body.

Blood cancer

Smoke contains some bacterial substances that once they invade the blood, it becomes infected. People who smoke a lot are likely to get leukemia compared to those who don’t smoke.

How to fall asleep on a plane comfortably

Which are you? The person who can comfortably sleep in a plane or those who can’t sleep at all and pull out a book to read till the end of your destination?

The former spring out of their seat upon arrival at their destination, fresh-faced, clear-eyed and ready to throw themselves into the ways of a new country and culture. But the latter happens to be one of these unfortunate souls, the start of any long-haul trip can quickly unravel as both sleep-deprived and jet-lagged. You’re barely able to function for at least 72 hours. Don’t fret, there are ways and means of securing a bit more shuteye.

 

Grab a row to your own self

Are you on that long-haul trip to a faraway country and the flight you in is half full? These are normally the best because after take off you can negotiate your way to the back of the plane. If this happens, ask a member of cabin crew as soon as possible if it’s OK for you to switch and bag yourself some extra legroom.

Top tip: once you’re lying comfortably, make sure you put on your seat belt so it’s visible over the blanket. There’s nothing worse than being woken up by a flight attendant during turbulence to check you’re belted up. Trust I know.

Sleeping mask

Though some airlines provide sleeping masks, I would encourage you to carry your own other than the satin masks they offer. The essence is to get a dark mask with a soft lining and raised edges to create a truly dark interior. You will be sleeping comfortably till you land.

Put in earplugs

Just like sleeping masks, the right plugs can be a gamechanger. Most people find it irritable by the sound of the engine or nagging crying babies in the plane. Find the right earplugs that fit your ears and you’ll be good to go.

Carry your own neck pillow

In the event that you have to sleep sitting up, those horseshoe looking neck pillows come in handy as your neck feels very comfortable and you avoid straining your neck.

Drink some alcohol

As much as booze may affect you at high altitude, It is advisable to take it in small doses in order to have a good sleep in the plane.

The Do’s and Don’t’s of drinking and serving wine

Many women love to unwind by having a glass of wine.

But before you grab that glass and sip, do you know the etiquette for serving and drinking wine?

Fun facts to know about wine:

  1. Wine is made in virtually every country in the world.
  2. Intense fear or hatred of wine is called “oenophobia.”
  3. All wine is stored at the same temperature, regardless of its color. But reds and whites are consumed at completely different temperatures.
  4. One glass of wine consists of juice from one cluster of grapes.
  5. Red wine can only be made from blue or purple-skinned grapes. White wine can also come from these darker grapes, but only if the juice is separated from the skins.
  6. Rosé, which finds itself somewhere in between red and white, is most often crafted by allowing the juice limited and controlled contact with dark grape skins.

So when handling wine these are some of the Dos and Don’ts:

DOS

  • Consider decanting your wine – The real benefit of the process is that it gently exposes the wine to air, softening its acids and tannin, effectively smoothing out all the sharp edges and wrinkles. It can be particularly helpful in taming the funk that comes off so-called reductive wines.
  • Smell your glass before pouring in your wine – You wouldn’t want the wine fragrance coming in your way over a soapy glass or dust-covered glass. One of the best, most enjoyable parts about drinking wine is appreciating its fragrance.
  • Invest in a good opener – You wouldn’t want chunks of the cork going into your wine bottle.

DON’T’S

  • Serve your red wine too warm – Heat will exacerbate the alcohol content of a wine, making your nose hairs burn when you go in for a big whiff. Conventional wisdom generally dictates that light-to medium-bodied reds should be served around 13–15C, while fuller-bodied reds are better enjoyed in the 15–20C range.
  • Serve your white wines too cold – Why? Because you’ll taste less. Light-bodied, less-aromatic wines should be served colder, in the 4–8C range, whereas more expressive and fuller-bodied whites should ideally be served in the slightly-warmer-but-still technically cold range of 8–10C.
  • Overpour your glass: Seriously, no matter how rough the day. If the glass is too full and you try to do your best professional swirl-and-sniff, chances are you’re going to end up making a mess.
  • Let past-its-prime, open wine go to waste: See if you can’t find a recipe for a stew, or soup or sauce where it can be given a respectable second-chance at life.

First date conversations to avoid

Securing a first date pretty much means that someone has given you a chance to spend time with them, and so you must be well prepared.

Have you ever watched the local dating shows on TV and cringed at the conversations people are holding? Yikes!

Some awkward things like wanting to know what tribe someone is should not arise folks! Here are topics to completely avoid:

mistakes christian men make in relationships

Religious and political beliefs

This is normally a very sensitive topic when it comes to your personal beliefs. Most people during dates try to avoid talking about such beliefs because you may never know whether they are religious or follow any political affiliates. It’s tricky to say something like your religion, which is premised on things like whether you’ll go to heaven or hell, can be affected by the dirty, secular world of politics. To avoid being in an awkward situation just avoid talking about religion and politics. You’ll be in the clear.

Past relationships and hurts

Ain’t you not trying to get over your ex? And that is why you are having a date,  to get over your past relationship. It is a clear indication when you talk about your previous relationship, means you are still not over your ex. This is a sign that you are just having a casual date and nothing serious will come from the first date. Ladies try avoiding talking about your previous hurt relationships.

Ethnicity and cultural differences

Tribalism is a very sensitive topic and people try to shun away from the topic. Such topics cause uproar between individuals of different backgrounds. To avoid being tribal, it’s safe to avoid such topics to be on the safe side. We are all from different cultural backgrounds and we should be willing to accommodate each other.

Celebrities who slid into DMs and fell in love

Finances and how much each earns

During a first date, it is advisable to avoid the money topic. You would not want to be labelled a ‘golddigger’ during the first date. Note, when you find your date asking about your financial status during your first date run. This will be a relationship based on financial benefits.

Where the relationship is going after the date

If you will give or get a second date after the first, then that is a clear indication that the date was a success and chances of a second date is evident. You really cannot know where a relationship is going after the first date, asking this question leads to a dwindle and lack of interest in the person.

Singer Adele files for divorce from husband

Months after separating from husband Simon Konecki, singer Adele has made it official.

Singer Adele has officially divorced husband  of 7 years Simon Konecki.

The award-winning singer, who gave birth to their son Angelo in 2012, married charity entrepreneur Simon Konecki in a secret ceremony in 2016 after five years of dating.

The rolling in the deep singer is a very private person, something she has come to confirm over the recent years. She officially confirmed their marriage during her acceptance speech at the 2017 Grammys after thanking her “husband”.

The couple has been separated for 5 months, but they have been jointly taking care of their 7-year-old son Angelo.

No one knows the real reason why the two love birds chose to go their separate ways after being together for a very long while and having a son together.

‘Love Is But A Dream’ Ciku Muiruri comments on Billionaire Cohens death

Assumptions may be, that both were in different stages in their lives. Simon is 14 years older than Adele, and being older than her, he already had his life figured out when she was trying to figure out hers. Perhaps the person she went to become did not become a match for the fully-formed man who had another child from a previous marriage. In 2016, she told Vanity fair magazine, that it was the most serious relationship she’d ever been in.

Perhaps living in two separate worlds may have ignited the breakup. It is said that Adele loved living in Los Angeles while Simon enjoyed England. She hated the cold Winters of England and that’s why she would always love LA and party with her famous friends. Most of the times, Simon was always MIA due to the demanding philanthropic nature of his charity job.

Adele did not sign a prenup when they got married, making Simon Konecki entitled to half of her earnings. The singer is worth $180M.

Dubai is famous for sightseeing attractions such as the Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest building) and shopping malls that come complete with mammoth aquariums and indoor ski slopes.

‘I prayed’ – Cassper Nyovest shows off luxurious car

“Here’s some motivation. It doesn’t happen overnight but i can assure you one thing, GOD IS FAITHFUL!!! KEEP PRAYING AND KEEP WORKING ON IT!!!! YOU GONE SEE!!!” Words of Cassper.

Refiloe Maele Phoolo (born 16 December 1990), professionally known as Cassper Nyovest, is a South African rapper, songwriter, entrepreneur and record producer. Born and raised in Mahikeng, North West, he is regarded as one of the most successful artists in South Africa.

View this post on Instagram

What did i do to deserve this life? I prayed.

A post shared by Refiloe Phoolo 🇿🇦 (@casspernyovest) on

It is with no doubt, that Cassper is the most prominent South African artistes today. He begun gaining international attention in the year 2009. According to South African buzz, his net worth is estimated to be around $800,000. This has been made made possible by the number of endorsements and adverts and sponsorship deals.

Nyovest is living the life, recently he purchased a luxurious house in a place called Kyalami. On top of that he has top of the range vehicles that match his stardom.

Some of the cars he is said to be owning are Bentlys, BMWs and a Rolls Royce.

In a recent Instagram post he posted one of his Bentley’s, asking what did he do to deserve such a life. As it may be shocking to most people that such artists believe in God and do pray to the one true God, doesn’t come as a shock to Cassper.  The rapper in his posts always includes messages of encouragement and a bible verse to motivate his fans and followers. I believe, the rapper wants to show his fans that prayer does move mountains and everything is possible through trusting and believing in God.

Faith with no action is dead. The rapper has lived proving the mantra since 2004 and we can clearly see good things manifesting in his life.

2 Destinations you need to travel to in Africa

Africa is one of the best travel destinations in the world. Here, you can enjoy crystal blue beaches, majestic wildlife, and a wealth of culture and history.

Before, you start planning trips to Europe and America, have you traveled to at least five countries in Africa? Or even the neighbouring East African countries?

Most people shun from wanting to travel to destinations that are close by not understanding how Africa as a continent has so much to offer and how the different people have a rich culture one can learn.

Take it up to yourself and friends to save up and experience what Africa has to offer. Let us be the kind that promotes our own other than waiting for westerners to take it up on themselves.

This article, will look at two places you ought to travel to in the continent without much straining.

  1. Rwanda

First of all, if you are in an East African country then travelling to Rwanda would be Visa free for you. Those visiting Rwanda will only need to obtain a visitor’s pass on arrival, which is valid for 6 months. There is no visa fee payable for this pass, and you can renew it at any point of entry. Do not feel pressured if you can not afford a flight from Kenya, this is because buses too can be used as a means of travel. It may be much longer and tiring but I believe the experience is worth it all.

Tourist destinations in the city

  • Genocide Memorial

Since the dark days of the genocide, Kigali has been able to take a U-turn and the city is bursting with greatness. In the city you can find scented spices and various bustling markets around the city. The Genocide memorial is one of the city’s biggest tourist attraction and very many tourists put it in their itinerary.

  • Volcanos National Park

Around the craggy volcanic peaks, visitors discover lush montane forests and thick groves of African redwoods. As you tour the lush forests you may discover the rare uber-rare mountain gorillas.

  • Kibuye

Kibuye jets into the blue-brown waters of lake Kivu in a series of headlands and sided bays. Also there are boats available for tours around the lake.

  • Akagera National Park

The national park, is the same Savannah you’d expect in the East African Rift. Gives rise to free roaming giraffes, antelopes and many more. If you are a bird watcher, then this is the place for you, with beautiful meanders of River Kagera shimmers through.

2. Namibia

Travel in Namibia is truly unlike travel anywhere else on earth. Known as the land of endless horizons, the vast distances and epic landscapes of this country will leave you feeling both insanely small and insignificant, and carefree and in absolute awe at every turn. It’s epic in every single way, and a visit here is well worth it.

Did I mention it’s visa free as well?

It may be vast, and distances may be long, but Namibia has an awful lot you absolutely must see. Places MUST visit: Sossusvlei, Fish River Canyon and Kolmanskop are must visit destinations to the south, while the unique and wild coastlines of Swakopmund, Walvis Bay and the Skeleton Coast simply cannot be missed.

Tourist destinations must visit,

  • Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei is the endless sea of rust-red dunes, the bleached white pan and its gnarled ancient trees. I believe, a visit to Namibia is incomplete without making the long trek into Sossusvlei, climbing Big Daddy and sitting atop the world’s tallest dune looking out over a sea of equally big dunes disappearing into the western horizon.

  • Skeleton Coast

Dunes meet sea at the Skeleton Coast and there is a lot to see and do here that makes Swakopmund an ideal break to the vast distance between Sossusvlei and Etosha.  Take, Desert tours, sea kayaking and scenic flights are complimented by a host of adventure activities including quad biking, paragliding, sandboarding and skydiving.

  • Fish River Canyon

Whichever way you measure it, the Fish River Canyon is enormous. Poised on the edge your view is of a vast flat land incised by rivers flowing for millennia.

  • Kaokoland

Enormous, virtually impassable mountain ranges, all the desert-adapted wildlife of Damaraland to the south and mile upon square mile of uninhabited, scenic splendour. Kaokoland is where the fascinating Himba people live – off the land in harmony with nature.

How to travel in Kenya on a budget and tight schedule

Best suited to adventurous self-drive 4×4 camping adventures with more than one vehicle, Kaokoland is quite likely on everybody’s second-visit bucket list. And a second visit you will want after skimming the surface of this ancient and beautiful country.

9. Paul Rudd

10. Will Smith

During the whole of last year, Will Smith made only one appearance in one major movie titled ‘Aladdin’. Probably, this is the reason why his earning between June 2018, and June 2019 has lowered slightly, putting him on the 10th place. In a rare return to the music industry, Will Smith made an appearance on ‘Live It Up’, the famous Nicky Jam’s World Cup Anthem.

Those are the top 10 highest paid Hollywood actors of 2019. Did your all time favourite actor appear among the list?

‘The Kitchen’ is a horrible mess that cannot be redeemed- Film review

Starring: Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elizabeth Moss, Domhnall Gleeson, Margo Martindale, Common

Premiere: August 9

Poster

In 1978, in the neighbourhood of Hell’s Kitchen in New York, three women find themselves in a difficult situation after their husbands are arrested by the police. Kathy, Ruby and Claire are married to members of the Irish mob who run Hell’s Kitchen.

Kathy’s husband Kevin wants out of the mob, Ruby’s husband Kevin will inherit the mob business from his mother Helen, who currently runs the mob, and Claire is married to Rob, an abusive and violent man. With the husbands gone, the ladies are forced to go into the mob business to ensure their survival.

The three women decide to offer protection to the local businesses since they do not get protection from the current mob leader, Little Jackie. They use Kathy’s cousin Duffy and their friend Burns as their henchmen. Their venture becomes successful and the women win the neighbourhood over with their good work. However, the mob business is not kind to women, so the three ladies are forced to take tough decisions to be taken seriously. They end up killing Little Jackie, who was a threat to them, and they also make deals with the Italian mafia who run Brooklyn.

7 famous movies you did not know were filmed in Kenya

The film is not great. It’s too long, it’s heavily laden with crime and relies heavily on firepower. The story feels choppy, with no sense of direction. Speaking of which, the film is written and directed by first-time director Andrea Berloff. It was a risky move putting the film and the talented cast into the hands of an inexperienced director.

Two of the main leads are highly successful award-winning comedic actresses. For them to take on dramatic lead roles in a crime-action genre is not only incredibly risky but utterly confusing. Fans spend half the time waiting for Haddish to break into her idiosyncrasies, or hoping that McCarthy would do some type of humorous stunt. This film was a major setback in these actresses’ already peaked careers.
