The crowd in attendance at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island were obviously stunned as they cheered ‘Thank you Roman’ after his shocking revelation.

Reigns said he was initially diagnosed with the cancer of blood-forming tissues back after his successful college football career at Georgia Tech when he was 22-years-old.

Shortly after his emotional speech, Reigns left the Universal Title in the middle of the ring.

He walked up the entrance ramp and was met by his two fellow members of faction The Shield, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose.

Rollins (real name Colby Daniel Lopez) was visibly shaken as he had tears running down his face as the trio did their signature pose in which they place their fists together.

Roman had been scheduled to face Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar in a three-way match for the championship at the controversial Crown Jewel event in Saudi Arabia on November 2.

It was later announced on Raw that Strowman and Lesnar will go one-on-one for the vacated title.

Reigns is one of the most decorated pro-wrestlers of the modern era as he is ninth grand slam champion as he held the WWE’s World Heavyweight, Intercontinental, Tag Team, and United States championships.

He was also ranked number one in Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s rankings of the top 500 singles wrestlers rankings back in 2016.

Reigns married Galina Joelle Becker in December 2014. He has a daughter named Joelle as well as twin boys who were born in 2016.

‘You smell like a toilet’ Apple founder to his daughter before his death

Years after Apple Founder Steve Jobs died her daughter has come out to show the world how much of a strained relationship the two had in her book Small Fry.

Lisa Brennan-Jobs says that in his death bed her father told her she was  getting nothing and that she smelt like a toilet in what was to be their last meeting before his death.

The Apple founder made the cruel dig at  as he lay dying of cancer because he smelled the rose facial mist she had sprayed on herself.In her new book, Small Fry, which is out September 4, Lisa reveals how her billionaire father once turned nasty and told her: ‘You’re getting nothing’ when she asked to have his Porsche when he was done with it.

‘You’re not getting anything, you understand?’ Jobs told her.

Lisa writes that Jobs spoke in ‘such a sour, biting way’ and that he once told ‘I’m one of the most important people you will ever know.’

Her memoir gives unprecedented detail about the troubled relationship with her father which was featured in the 2015 biopic about him with Michael Fassbender in the lead role.

She says that for her father, her very existence was a disappointment and a source of shame.

As she puts it, in his eyes she was a ‘blot on a spectacular ascent, as our story did not fit with the narrative of greatness and virtue he might have wanted for himself.’

She writes:

“My existence ruined his streak. For me, it was the opposite: the closer I was to him, the less I would feel ashamed; he was part of the world, and he would accelerate me into the light.”

Lisa, now 40, was born in 1978 after Jobs had a five-year relationship with her mother Chrisann Brennan which ended when she became pregnant.Acrimony and a court case followed during which Jobs took a paternity test and still denied that he was Lisa’s father.

According to Daily Mail Jobs, who died in 2011, even claimed that he was ‘sterile and infertile’ yet went on to have three children with his wife Laurene Powell.

Jobs finally reconciled with Lisa and apologized when she was nine years old, but the wounds of his behavior never really healed and the two had a strained, difficult relationship.

In an excerpt of Small Fry in Vanity Fair magazine, Lisa writes about how she used to tell her school friends: ‘I have a secret, my father is Steve Jobs’.

She told them that her father had named an early Macintosh computer after her.She would boast to friends saying that

“He’s famous. He invented the personal computer. He lives in a mansion and drives a Porsche convertible. He buys a new one every time it gets a scratch’. For a long time I hoped that if I played one role, my father would take the corresponding role”

She adds

“I would be the beloved daughter,he would be the indulgent father.I decided that if I acted like other daughters did, he would join in the lark. We’d pretend together, and in pretending we’d make it real. If I had observed him as he was, or admitted to myself what I saw, I would have known that he would not do this, and that a game of pretend would disgust him.”

During one visit to Jobs’s house Lisa plucked up the courage to ask her father about his Porsche and said: ‘Can I have it when you’re done?’

Jobs replied: ‘Absolutely not’. Lisa writes that, judging by his reaction, she thought the story she’d been told about him replacing it after a scratch wasn’t true.

But worse was to come,She writes: ‘I wished I could take it back. We pulled up to the house and he turned off the engine. Before I made a move to get out he turned to face me.

‘You’re not getting anything’, he said. ‘You understand? Nothing. You’re getting nothing’.

‘Did he mean about the car, something else, bigger? I didn’t know. His voice hurt – sharp, in my chest. The light was cool in the car, a white light on the roof had lit up when the car turned off. Around us was dark. I had made a terrible mistake and he’d recoiled’.

Father to Cristiano Ronaldo is a convicted drug trafficker sources reveal

The father of Cristiano Ronaldo’s girlfriend is a convicted drugs trafficker who spent ten years jail, it has emerged even as he is sued for sexual abuse.

Argentinian Jorge Rodriguez, 69, the father of Ronaldo’s partner Georgina, 23, served time in three prisons in Spain for two drugs trafficking offences.

Mr Rodriguez, a Buenos Aires-born former footballer, was jailed in 2003 and released in 2013 after receiving sentences of 11 years and two years, although he was on licence for part of that time and not behind bars 24/7.

The revelation comes as Ronaldo faces a new US police investigation over an alleged rape in Las Vegas in 2009, which he strongly denies. The footballer has described the claim as fake news.

Nevada woman accuses Cristiano Ronaldo of sexual assault 9 years ago

Jorge is thought to have been kicked out of the country and banned from returning to Spain after completing his sentence in August 2013.

He is currently in Argentina and said to be seriously ill and being cared for by a relative, who is understood to get by with money former shop worker Georgina and her older sister Ivana send them.

Jorge, who met Georgina’s mother after moving to Spain in the 1980s, was found guilty of trafficking with cocaine and cannabis resin in separate trials at a special court in Madrid called the Audiencia Nacional.

Judges there deal with the extraditions of British criminals and have also tried some of Spain’s most dangerous terrorists including the men responsible for the 2004 Madrid train bombings which killed 193 people and injured around 2,000.

His cocaine trafficking conviction, set out in an 18-page document dated July 28 2003, shows how he masterminded a failed attempt to smuggle more than £100,000 of cocaine from Spain to France using a bolthole where he was in hiding from outstanding arrest warrants.

Two accomplices were stopped by police near Madrid on January 26, 1999 as they drove towards the French city of Nice to deliver the drugs to an Italian nicknamed ‘Espaguetti’ – ‘Spaghetti’ in English.

The passenger tried to avoid arrest by throwing the drugs – just over three kilos of 83 per cent pure cocaine – out of the window of their Fiat Tipo.

Rodriguez – full name Jorge Eduardo Rodriguez Gorjon – failed to get incriminating phone taps rejected as evidence at his trial which linked him to a Colombian paid for the drugs.

Prosecutors wanted him jailed for 13 and a half years but the three trial judges decided on an 11-year sentence and 120,000 euro (£106,500) fine, ruling he had carried out ‘coordination tasks.’

He received his second sentence on November 22, 2010.

A different Audiencia Nacional judge handed him a two-year jail term for smuggling cannabis resin from Morocco to Spain with six accomplices.

Martinez was convicted of organising a boat drugs drop in the Costa Tropical holiday resort of Roquetas de Mar in December 2008 during a brief early release on licence.

Police discovered nearly a tonne of cannabis resin valued at more than £1million during a raid on a nearby warehouse the drugs were taken to after being smuggled into Spain.

Two guns and six bullets, described as being ‘in perfect working order’ and provided by two gang members who were also convicted of weapons possession, were found in the same warehouse.

Prosecutors demanded a four-year, six-month jail sentence for Rodriguez but he was let off with a lighter punishment because he confessed.

 A Spanish Prison Service source confirmed he had done his time in Zuera Penitentiary Centre in the northern province of Zaragoza and jails in the provinces of Alicante and Murcia between 2003 and 2013.

He was briefly granted conditional release in September 2008 but that was revoked after his arrest for his second drugs offence.

Newly-signed Juventus striker Ronaldo, 33, forged his relationship with Georgina, ten years his junior, during lock-ins at the upmarket clothes store where she used to work.

The former Real Madrid striker met her at a Gucci store in central Madrid in June 2016 when he was shopping for summer clothes.

She soon became his first serious girlfriend since he broke up with Russian beauty Irina Shayk at the start of 2015.

He moved her into his luxury home on a gated estate on the outskirts of the Spanish capital before setting up home with her in Turin.

They are bringing up daughter Alana Martina, one in November, and the footballer’s three young children.

Earlier this year the footballer’s mother said of Georgina during a magazine interview about her son’s love life, children and his alcoholic dad Dinis who drank himself into an early grave in September 2005: ‘She is the mother of my grand-daughter. She is a future daughter-in-law. She’s not my daughter-in-law yet. She’s a future daughter-in-law. She’s a very calm person.’

The Portuguese-based firm that represents Cristiano, Gestifute, failed to respond to requests for a comment.

‘He raped me as the wedding party was still going on downstairs.”Heart wrenching story of a woman kidnapped as a teen ,raped repeatedly and forced into 8 abortions.

Nothing is more heartbreaking than the story of Sarah a girl who was abducted as a teen held captive for 12 years and raped repeatedly.

As if that is not enough Sarah was forced to carry out eight abortions,Sarah’s haunted face stares out under a red Islamic head-dress in her wedding photo. Beside her, guests eat cake while celebrating the marriage, conducted by the local mosque’s imam at a terraced house in the Home Counties.

Yet Sarah is not a willing bride. She is being made to marry a member of the gang that effectively forced her into sex slavery after abducting her in a Tesco car park in the English suburbs one autumn afternoon. Her captivity lasted for 12 long years.

Within minutes of her wedding picture being taken, the white English girl was pushed upstairs into a bedroom and raped by her new husband, a man she had set eyes on for the first time only half an hour earlier.

Sharon Otieno rejected a house worth Sh 10million and demanded one worth Sh 35 million in Westlands from Okoth Obado before her gruesome murder.

Rape

It was just one of the unimaginable torments Sarah endured after she was kidnapped as a shy 15-year-old. She had never had a boyfriend. She was studying at college, hoping to train as a midwife.

Sarah’s story is described by House of Lords crossbencher Baroness Caroline Cox, who has taken up her case, as the most serious example of sex grooming yet to emerge in this country.

Sarah’s abuse went on while her distraught family’s pleas for help were, they insist, ignored by a police force that refused even to list her as missing.

Her family were forced to keep up the search for her on their own after she failed to return from Tesco.Her mother says that the Police seemed less bothered by the case.

“The police kept saying leave it a few days, she’ll come back, ‘But she never did.”

‘ I wished they could tell me they want to kill me’Emmy Simwoto woman stalked for 1 year emotionally says

Sarah was snatched five years before the scandal of sexual abuse of young white girls by street grooming gangs was first revealed in 2010, after investigations by the Daily Mail and later by the Government.

The kidnap gang were ruthless and bent on making Sarah utterly dependent on them. They hid her in various houses and cut off her contact with the outside world by refusing her a mobile phone or computer. She was raped, beaten and made to swallow strong sedatives every day to make her docile.

During her ordeal she had eight abortions, five of them overseen by the same doctor at an NHS hospital and others in illegal backstreet clinics.

She was made to learn the Koran in Arabic and allowed to speak only in the Pakistani languages of Urdu and Punjabi.

When we asked the police force involved in Sarah’s case why they took so long to act, they replied:

“Our understanding of and approach to issues such as child sexual exploitation and modern slavery has evolved and improved over the past decade, as is the case with police forces up and down the country.

We have had major success stories in recent years in these areas, securing lengthy prison sentences for those perpetrating such crimes and establishing specialist support services to help victims.

Officers are far more aware of issues around vulnerability, while we also have specialist, dedicated resources to deal with such cases, including historic ones.”

Forced to wear Islamic robes with a head-covering hijab, she had to cook, clean and iron for hours every day.

It was only last year that Sarah, at the age of 26, finally escaped the gang’s clutches.In her first harrowing interviewat a safe house Sarah says

“Ever since I was a young teenager, I have known nothing other than life under the gang’s control.”

In her years of captivity, she says, she fell victim to Stockholm syndrome, where a prisoner forms an emotional attachment to a captor, believing they must co-operate in order to survive. She became particularly attached to the gang leader, whom we will call Jerry.

She explains

“I began to think that Jerry loved me because he kept telling me so. He said my parents didn’t care for me because English families don’t look after their girls like Pakistani Muslim ones.

I soon felt I couldn’t breathe without him. My mind was being twisted. I was dependent on him for food, for clothing, for a roof over my head. He said my family would be killed if I tried to tell them where I was or what was happening to me.”

Sarah’s horrific story began in the autumn of 2005. She is the youngest of four children, her father is a builder and her mother a housewife. For legal reasons and her own safety, we cannot use her real name or identify where she was kidnapped, held, or where she lives now.

After college one afternoon she walked to a Tesco food store a few minutes from her house. Her mobile phone rang and she answered. A man’s voice said in a Northern accent that he was watching her and had something for her. Would she go over to a black car in the store’s car park?

Sarah, to her eternal regret, went naively to the passenger door.

‘A man in his mid-30s opened it and in the same Northern accent told me to get in. So I sat in the front seat to hear what he wanted to give me. He instantly drove me away,’ she says.

She thinks Jerry found her number after spotting her a few days earlier when she took a minicab with her brother to get a takeaway burger. She had noticed a dark-haired man in a black car staring at her as they got in the minicab with their meal.

taxi

Crucially, to book the ride, Sarah had given her number to the minicab firm where friends of Jerry’s worked. The gang leader, she assumes, then got hold of it.

In the car with Jerry speeding off, she began to panic. He put his hand on hers and said he would look after her. Sarah was trembling and told him her family would be frantic. It was to no avail.

After half an hour they reached a house next to an industrial estate, where he asked for her mobile phone, taking out the sim card and snapping it in two.

“He took me inside and I saw a lot of Pakistani men in an open-plan room. Jerry led me past them up the stairs to a tiny boxroom with a bed and the curtains taped up,’ she says. ‘Then he left, closing the door.”

For the first 24 hours she was alone apart from a few visits from Jerry, who brought her bottled water and some curry, which she ate with her fingers.

It was on the second night that Jerry first raped her.

“I could hear voices in the open-plan room below me. I now know these men were all friends and relations of Jerry and part of his gang that dealt in drugs.

I was pulling back from him and I was scared,’ she remembers. ‘I felt angry, dirty and disgusted after he had finished.”

For three hours each morning she had to cook curries, clean and iron for the gang. If she didn’t, she was beaten.

She was allowed out of the house occasionally with two of Jerry’s sons to go to the local supermarket. ‘I had to wear the hijab, partly because the gang ordered me to and partly to hide the bruising to my face and head where I had been beaten.’

Meanwhile, Sarah’s mother Janet was continuing her frantic search. ‘Her dad and I had been looking for her for two months by this time,’ she tells me.

“We had put up missing posters, never stopping. Finally, a friend said he thought he’d seen her in a Pakistani area. We went there every day, showing her photo to people in shops and on the streets.”

During this relentless hunt, there was an agonising near miss. Jerry’s sons and Sarah were in the supermarket when she saw her mother, who was looking for her in the area.

Instinctively, Sarah ran over and hugged her mother. ‘Mum asked me who the young boys were,’ recalls Sarah. ‘I said they were the sons of the man who had taken me away months before.’

But the startled boys quickly hustled Sarah away from her mother, who kept shouting to her: ‘Are you in trouble?’

Janet continues:

“When I saw her in the supermarket I couldn’t believe it. She was in Islamic dress. I saw from her eyes she was terrified. She begged me not to say anything. She was panicking and obviously scared of the gang we now know was holding her.

She was scurried off by the boys. But my husband and I followed them at a distance and carefully watched the direction they went.”

Seconds later a black vehicle with Sarah inside and an Asian man at the wheel screeched past them as they stood in the street.

‘We saw a flash of blonde hair under a scarf but that was all. We had lost her. We were heartbroken,’ says Janet. She reported what had happened to the police, only to be brushed aside again.

What had happened was that Jerry’s sons had taken Sarah back to the house and told Jerry her mother was near by.

“He was furious. He ordered me to get into his car,’ recalls Sarah. ‘He smashed my head against the dashboard and windows, which became splattered with my blood.’ Then he drove her quickly to yet another house, in a different town.”

In her new home, she was prevented from going out.

One day, out of the blue, Jerry told her he had married her. ‘I hadn’t been to any ceremony but he showed me the Islamic wedding certificate signed by an imam at the local mosque,’ she says. ‘I now think this marriage was to make the police believe I was a willing wife if they ever found me.’

Bewildered — she was being given 20mg of Valium each morning to stupefy her— Sarah continued her life of hell, regularly being abused and raped.

Inevitably, she fell pregnant.

“After one termination I was fitted with a coil, but Jerry made me go back to the hospital with him and have it removed because he said he could ‘feel it’ when he raped me.

I wasn’t allowed to speak to doctors at medical appointments. I had to walk 5ft behind him, keep my head down and wear a hijab. He said I was his girlfriend.”

As if this were not horrific enough, the first abortion didn’t work. The five-month-old foetus survived the drugs given to Sarah on a Sunday afternoon in a side room at an NHS hospital.

On the Monday morning, she was taken for a scan and the baby was still alive.

“I was in labour for nearly 24 hours,’ she says, with tears welling. ‘I was begging for help. One nurse ran from the room and said she couldn’t take it any more.’

I was rushed to the operating theatre, where they surgically carried out the abortion,’ she says. ‘I don’t know if I was carrying a boy or a girl and I hope one day the NHS will tell me, as I cannot forget that child.”

‘He raped my daughter, beats me yet I am only a few months past delivery’ Cries city woman

How could all this happen to an underage girl in the modern NHS? Perhaps because Jerry was so intimidating or because the gang network had its tentacles everywhere.

Whatever the case, the rapes and abortions continued.

One day, Jerry announced their marriage was over. Under Islamic rules, he told Sarah three times that they were divorced.

Then she was suddenly married off to another man. On her ‘wedding day’ in 2012, nearly seven years after the kidnap, she was lying in her room when two women came in carrying a clear plastic bag.

They took out the red dress and told her to put it on. They tied back her hair, put make-up on her and said she was about to marry.

Sarah was pushed downstairs to the ceremony and clapping guests. It was over in minutes and she was ordered back upstairs — with her new husband.

“The women had put petals on my bed in the Muslim tradition,The strange man began putting his hands all over me. I was so weak I couldn’t fight him. He raped me as the wedding party was still going on downstairs.”

This shocking episode was the beginning of the end.

Time and again she had tried to run away down the street, only to be grabbed by Jerry and brought back for a beating. But now she managed to escape.

“When Jerry was asleep upstairs one morning, I found his mobile phone and called for a taxi. I took £20 to pay for it from the pocket of his jeans. When the taxi arrived I was in Islamic clothes. I raced out through the back gate and told the driver, a white man who kept asking if I was all right because I was so pale, to take me to where my brother lived.”

Sharon Otieno rejected a house worth Sh 10million and demanded one worth Sh 35 million in Westlands from Okoth Obado before her gruesome murder.

She had grabbed the certificate of marriage to Jerry and the red dress. ‘They were the only possessions I had,’ she explains.

Sarah thought she was free. But Jerry’s gang did not give up.

After Sarah left her brother’s house a month later, she moved to a flat in a different part of Britain, away from her family, so they could not be threatened by the gang for protecting her.

Yet the gang leader found her through his extensive network of contacts. The coercion, the beatings, the rapes continued.

Couple-fighting

Finally, after an especially savage beating, a neighbour called the police to report a domestic violence incident. Sarah was taken to hospital and there started to tell police she was a prisoner, sparking inquiries into her kidnap which continue today, more than three years later.

Shock as 24-year-old man kills 3 kids, wife and mother-in-law and keeps the dead bodies for six days before being found out

Police allege Anthony Robert Harvey murdered his partner Mara Harvey, 47, her daughter Charlotte, 3, two-year-old twin girls Alice and Beatrix.

The murder took place in September 3 at their Bedford home, in Perth’s north east.The 24-year-old murdered his mother-in-law Beverley Quinn, 74, the next day on September 4 when she visited the home. several weapons including a blunt instrument and knives were used, WA Police Commissioner Chris Dawson said on Monday.

The grandmother and children who were found dead in their home have been remembered as a loving family. The tragedy unfolded on Sunday when Mr Harvey drove 1400 kilometres to the remote Pilbara mining town of Pannawonica and provided police with information.

Officers worked on the information they were provided and arrived at the house and found the television still on, before they found the five deceased bodies.

Mr Harvey was then charged with five counts of murder. The murdered mother’s sister, Taryn, issued a statement on Monday remembering her loving mother, her proud sister, and bubbly and energetic nieces.

Taryn said there were no words to explain the emptiness that the family is experiencing following the horrific murders.

“She said her sister ‘loved being a mum’ and was that her daughters were her world.She was so proud of each of them and was doing a great job of raising them. Her girls were her world,’ ‘Charlotte was an energetic, bubbly confident little girl who loved people and loved socialising. Alice was outgoing, adventurous and cheeky, while Beatrix was at times a little bit more quiet but gave the biggest hugs.”

Taryn also said her mother, Mrs Quinn would have done anything for her children and grandchildren.

“Beverley was a kind hearted, caring mother and grandmother and was always there for her family. She was very much family orientated and she loved her daughters and grandchildren, and would have done anything for them.

This world is a sadder place with the loss of these five beautiful people but Heaven has gained five new angels.”

She also thanked family, friends and the community for their support during this trying period, and has asked for privacy as they grieve the losses.

The children’s father, Mr Harvey, who ran a Jim’s Mowing franchise with his wife Mara, told a neighbour he was struggling financially and felt under pressure to work even when sick to keep the business afloat.

The couple ran the business in Morley, north-east Perth, after previously working for a Sino Steel Pilbara mine.

Neighbour Richard Fairbrother described Mr Harvey as slightly socially awkward and under pressure due to money troubles.Speaking to the Australian Richard says

“There was a couple of times he had been quite ill with the flu and he was having to get up and go to work anyway,’ He said there was no money coming in unless he was out there.”

Ms Harvey, who owned the property on Coode Street, in the city’s north-east, has been described as ‘unlucky in love’, and her husband Anthony Harvey was 18 years her junior.

The couple lived together in the small brick house, and had daughter Charlotte a year after Mr Harvey proposed in 2014.

Located on a large corner block in the city’s north-east, Ms Harvey bought the modest three-bedroom brick-and-tile home in 2008. A compact kitchen and large stand-alone outdoor garage can be seen in photos of the home’s interior, along with a covered back patio area facing the lawn.

Both had worked for a Sino Steel Pilbara mine, and Mr Harvey then started his own business using income generated from the sales of some of Ms Harvey’s properties.

Facebook group Perth & Districts Multiple Birth Association Inc, of which Ms Harvey was a member, paid tribute to the victims on Monday.

“It is with a heavy heart and our deepest condolences that we are informing our community today that one of our own has been taken, in what can only be described as a shocking tragedy.

News reports today confirm the death of one of our members Mara, her mother, her twin girls Beatrix & Alice and their big sister Charlotte.Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who know the family & have been touched by this tragedy.”

Rebecca Della, who lives next door with her partner Richard, told Daily Mail Australia there was no sign of anything wrong.

‘Even the week before they seemed happy and cheerful, I never heard them have any fights,’ she said.

‘We’re all shocked, no one thought something like this would happen with them.’

Kimberly Shackelton said the area was a safe close-knit neighbourhood where you would never expect violence.

“They were just a normal, everyday family, You’d think with something like this there would be warning signs but they were so quiet and seemed happy.

You’d never see them fight or shout at each other, just those lovely kids playing and running around the front yelling ‘daddy’ as he left for work.Those poor kids, they never got to have a life.” 

Police have not said how the women and children died, and it’s believed Mr Harvey stayed with the bodies six days after he allegedly murdered them.

Homicide detectives and specialist forensic police will on Monday continue to comb the home for evidence and clues to what happened after the shocking discovery on Sunday.

‘Depending on the size of that crime scene that will take a period of time, and it could be a number of days,’ Assistant Commissioner Metropolitan Region Paul Steel said.

‘It is a tragic thing when incidents like this occur. It does send a ripple through the community of Western Australia.’

First responders have been offered access to a police chaplain to help them cope with the horrific scene inside the house, which remains sealed off with police tape.

The mother-of-one, 40, who has terminal breast cancer, has wrapped 18 years worth of birthday presents for three-year-old son Freddie – but could struggle to finish a memoir written just for him.

She has also built up a collection of handwritten notebooks, perfume and other personal items so the little boy grows up knowing how his mummy wrote, smelled and sounded once she is gone.

And in order to not upset her husband Steve, she has set up a WhatsApp group with his sister detailing her wishes for their little boy as he grows up including not cutting his hair too short and ensuring he helps choose his school.

Rachael’s final plans have been revealed in a blog written last week – just before she learned she had days to live – but published for the first time today.

Her brave tweet yesterday announcing she has ‘only got days’ has sparked thousands of responses praising her inspirational dignity and bravery in the face of terminal illness.

Mrs Bland wrote an emotional goodbye message to her social media followers this afternoon

Yesterday the BBC broadcaster tweeted the news, sparking an outpouring of grief among friends and fans, and today she agreed to publish the plans she has made in the event of her death.

She wrote on HuffPost:

“I have a Whatsapp group with Steve’s sister where I send her things I want for Freddie and his future. The things that might overwhelm and upset Steve now but she will make sure happens.

Like not cutting his hair too short until he really insists, or my wish for him to go to the very best school and university possible, so long as that’s what he wants.I’m also planning and wrapping birthday presents which he can open between the ages of four and twenty one.

‘Personal effects like my notepads – so he can see what my writing was like. Or the perfume he helped pick out for me earlier this year so he’ll remember my smell. And his all-important box of newborn keepsakes’.”

Rachael is also writing a memoir for her son, called ‘For Freddie’, and faces a race against time to complete it.

She added: ‘It’s a collection of all those stories your parents tell you over the years from their point of view, mixed in with all the advice they give you.

‘I’d only known Steve for such a short period of time before we married – I feel there’s so much he needs to know from my point of view and in my voice. And I think I best get my personality down on paper’.

Rachael has been documenting her fight against the disease in a blog called Big C Little Me since she was diagnosed in November 2016.

The Welsh journalist also hosted a podcast series called You Me & The Big C where she discussed the highs and lows of battling the illness.

Former BBC colleague Susanna Reid was among those to show their sympathy, writing on Twitter: ‘Oh Rachael. You have so much courage.

‘You are loved beyond measure by people you haven’t even met because of the way you have dealt with this. My love to you and your family.’  

Writing on Instagram and Twitter yesterday she said: ‘In the words of the legendary Frank Sinatra, I’m afraid to say the time has come my friends. And suddenly I’m told I’ve only got days, it’s all very surreal.’

Radio 5 colleague Richard Bacon also offered support on Twitter, writing: ‘Days. Devastating. Rachael I know saying I’m thinking of you (and our magnificent time together on air, especially all that late night fun) doesn’t change anything.

‘But I am and I’m so very sorry. Your podcast has helped change the way people talk about all this. You’re wonderful.’

And LBC presenter Iain Dale wrote: ‘You are in all our thoughts dearest Rachael. I’m sitting here preparing for my new show with a tear or two in my eye at the thought we will never hear your lovely voice on the radio again. Love from everyone at LBC.’

Her tragic journey has been an inspiration to thousands of people.

Mrs Bland, a BBC news presenter of more than 15 years, has documented her fight with the disease with her blog Big C Little Me. Putting the Can into Cancer’ and a podcast called ‘You, Me & The Big C’.

Writing in her blog previously, Mrs Bland told of how she was with her son and his friends at an ice cream farm when she was given the earth-shattering news her cancer was terminal.

 ‘My heart raced as I answered it, knowing a phone call did not bode well.Then came the words “I am so sorry, it’s bad news. The biopsies have come back showing the same cancer is back and is in the skin”.  

Describing the moment she broke the news to her family, Mrs Bland said: ‘I watched my little Freddie innocently playing away in a tyre in the barn and my heart broke for him.

“I scooped him up and dashed home and then had to break (her husband) Steve’s heart with the news that my cancer was now metastatic and therefore incurable.”

The news anchor had written that she felt she had become a ‘lab rat’ after starting a medical trial in a bid to buy her more time with her husband Steve and then two-year-old son Freddie.

Thousands of listeners tuned in to BBC Radio 5 Live to hear her weekly discussions with fellow patients Lauren Mahon and Deborah James on the highs and lows of living with cancer.

Woman sues employer for forcing her to wear a bra to work

An Alberta woman has filed a human rights complaint against her employer after she was told she had to wear a bra to work.

Christina Schell was fired after refusing to comply with an updated dress code, which meant she had to wear a bra or an undershirt while she worked outdoors serving tables.

She told CBC when she confronted the general manager of the Osoyoos Golf Club, Doug Robb, she was told the rule was to protect her from members.

https://instagram.fmba1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/vp/d26629580c63b6b07a21320871fb91c9/5C258F20/t51.2885-15/e35/39921974_414721549055259_2107829031190413649_n.jpg?_nc_eui2=AeElluVaqwKF3n1hefFUYBi2pq_JPGnlUtuNvB8UCOSJiN-T1ePUuEZ99FHxwXrPkCuyl_-tDPqqSocJe4qdaiqJtsi5fvSigFzdtwfZ2Eh36g

 

Schell claims he told her: ‘I know what happens in golf clubs when alcohol’s involved’.

The 25-year-old said she stopped wearing bras about two years ago, because she found them ‘horrible’.

Schell said she chose to use the human rights act to complain as she noticed men did not have the same amount of restrictions surrounding how they dressed.

“It’s gender-based and that’s why it’s a human rights issue,’I have nipples and so do the men.”

 McDonald’s cook Kate Gosek said she also struggled at work because of her choice not to wear a bra.

Gosek, 19, told CBC she had been confronted by multiple managers at the store who were displeased with her choice. She said one female manager had gone as far as to poke her shoulder looking for a strap.

‘When you walk in the streets with a child with cerebral palsy, people stare at you like a devil’Heart broken mother narrates her journey with cerebral palsy

‘She just told me that I should put on a bra because, McDonald’s – we are a polite restaurant and no one needs to see that.’

Gosek, who doesn’t wear bras for comfort reasons, received an apology from two of her managers this week, with McDonald’s Canada confirming there is no requirement for female employees.

Under discrimination law, it is illegal for employers: ‘to discriminate against any individual because of his race, color, religion, sex, or national origin’.

While Gosek can now breathe easy she knows her employer has a positive view towards going bra-less, Schell is still waiting to hear back about the success, or lack thereof, of her human rights complaint.

Television kills your sex life’: Couples who own a TV are 6% less likely to get intimate in any given week

People who own televisions are six percent less likely to have sex in any given week, new research suggests, most people end up not in the mood.

According to scientists from the University of Delaware, people around the world are showing ‘willingness to substitute electronic companionship for human companionship’.

The researchers, who add that the six percent reduction is likely a ‘conservative estimate’, claim ‘television is associated with sex life morbidity’ but add that smartphones may be ‘the real sex-life killer’.

The study, which analysed nearly four million people from 80 countries, follows research that found the average person had sex just three times a month in 2010, compared to five in 1990.

Sleepy-woman-checking-messages-on-cell-phone

This research’s author, who singled out the popular HBO series Game of Thrones as a culprit, argued TV used to ‘close down at 10.30pm’ with couples have ‘nothing else to do’.

The University of Delaware researchers analysed millions of people across five continents. Speaking of the likely role of smartphones, they wrote: ‘More recently, popular culture has claimed that smartphones are killing peoples sex lives.

‘Our study population resides in low- and middle-income countries and were surveyed largely around 2010, before the widespread availability of smartphones.

‘In countries with ubiquitous smartphones, the smartphone might be the real sex-life killer.’

The results further suggest income, age or level of education do not influence how much sex a TV owner has.

The findings were published in the National Bureau of Economic Research.

In the US, adults spend more than 11 hours a day interacting with media, whether that be via watching, reading or listening, according to the market-research group Nielsen.

This is an increase of one hour and 32 minutes from 2014,In the UK, electricity and internet use peaks between 10 and 11pm, which could be when people are streaming their favourite box sets.

David Spiegelhalter, from Cambridge University, told the Daily Telegraph: ‘The point is this massive connectivity, the constant checking of our phones compared to just a few years ago when TV closed down at 10:30pm and there was nothing else to do.’

‘Even power cuts help. Now people are having less sex.’

From burning calories to boosting the immune system and even fighting the signs of ageing, numerous studies suggest regular love making seriously boosts a person’s well being.

According to the California-based obstetrician-gynaecologist Dr Sherry Ross, having sex for just under 25 minutes causes a woman to burn around 69 calories, particularly if they are on top, in a squat position or achieve orgasm.

Having a healthy sex life also boosts a person’s immune system due to them producing higher levels of antibodies, she adds.

In addition, contracting genital muscles can reduce the discomfort of menstrual cramps, headaches and joint pain, Dr Ross claims, who even recommends women schedule an orgasm for when their periods are due.

Fast and Furious actor Tyrese Gibson going through financial challenges and can’t afford to maintain his lifestyle

Tyrese Gibson’s much documented money problems appear to have gotten worse after his financial records proved that he is struggling financially.

The model turned actor responded to his ex-wife Norma Gibson’s request for him to pay for her divorce attorney.

According to his financial records obtained by TMZ, not only can’t he afford to pay for her legal fees, he also can’t afford to keep up his lifestyle.

Those records show The Fast & Furious star spends about $114,000 a month on bills that includes: his mortgage, utilities, child care and groceries. Add another $10,000 a month in child support payments to his estranged wife and that brings the monthly total to $124,000.

Currently he brings in about $51,000 a month, which translates to a $73,000 a month deficit.

Things have reportedly gotten so bad the 39-year old’s savings account has withered down from $800,000 in cash to $130,000 over the last nine months.

Tyrese has cast blame on his ex for his recent money problems — maintaining that the bad press that he got after she accused him of domestic violence last year made it difficult for him to land more movie rolls.

The former couple have been engaged in a bitter custody battle over their 11-year old daughter Shayla. At one point, Norma requested a restraining order against Tyrese, who she claimed allegedly beat their daughter. A judge ultimately denied the request, claiming there wasn’t an ongoing pattern of harassment against Norma or their daughter.

The former couple currently have shared custody, but Tyrese wants Shayla to live with him at his Atlanta mansion rather than remain with her mother in Los Angeles.

Last year, the LA native tied the knot with New Jersey-born Samantha Lee and they announced in April that they are expecting a baby together. The baby girl is due in September.

Tyrese has been a part of a number of blockbuster films that includes: roles in five of the Fast & Furious action movies beginning in 2003, Annapolis (2005), Transformers (2007), Death Race (2008), Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011) and Ride Along 2 (2016).

Man loses his You Tube channel with 5.6 million followers after recording himself feeding his kids ice-cream laced with laxatives and in serious pain

Cordero James YouTube channel has been suspended after posting a ‘prank’ video of him feeding his kids ice cream laced with laxatives and recording them.

Cordero James Brady, 29, from Nevada, runs the YouTube channel CJ SO COOL, which has over 5.6million followers. The channel is monetized – which means he sells his channel to advertisers, with the more people watching the ads, the more money they stand to make.

Last week his channel was suspended over the vicious practical joke that appeared to have made his children physically sick. The ‘laxative ice cream’ video was permanently removed.

In the vlog, Brady films himself dosing his children’s ice cream with Pedia-Lax and then feeding it to them. He then films 90-minutes later, showing his children screaming and crying in pain.

‘My stomach hurts,’ screams one of his kids. ‘Oh my goodness, this boy’s stomach is broken!’ he jokes.

Then, he films his youngest two- a boy and a girl, in separate bathrooms, as they sit on the toilet crying, trying to close the door on him- as he continues to hold the camera on them.

‘You smell like a toilet’ Apple founder to his daughter before his death

A Henderson Police Department source told DailyMail.com: ‘There was a case that was investigated in 2016 involving laxatives and this individual. It was a joint investigation with Clark County Child Protective Services. It was submitted to the DAs office and it was recommended as a criminal case.’

According to Daily Mail It is not yet clear what charges have been made and although it would seem the video was filmed two years ago, it appears YouTube only removed the video last week when the site babe.net initially reported on it.

In a call to Clark County Child Protective Services, they said they are unable to comment on any potential investigations.

Dr Kortney Peagram, founder of Bulldog Solution, an anti-child abuse organization, told babe.net, the site that originally reported on the laxative video: ‘Harming your child on purpose with laxatives is child abuse. That’s child endangerment.’

She added Brady is ‘harming his children and bullying them to pull pranks on each other, it is really disturbing.

Tedd Josiah sadly narrates the last thing his wife did before passing away

‘He’s modelling inappropriate behavior and encouraging it by laughter … He’s teaching his children that it’s okay to harm each other for a good laugh.’

Brady’s ‘pranks’ have left his children in tears before.

In what appears to be another since removed video, he lights fireworks in the kids’ room as they sleep, and when they start crying- he laughs saying ‘it’s a prank because they think somebody was shooting!’

In another video, which is still up, that he calls ‘The Drowning Baby Prank’ he tells his partner Royalty Johnson, 28, their child has drowned.

When she frantically runs out of the house, Brady shouts: ‘It’s a prank, sucker!’

And, in yet another of the disturbing and upsetting content he posted, he filmed his partner coming out of a haze after just having miscarried.

In another horrifying prank, it is Royalty getting Brady, using their son, who she has pretend to get a pencil stuck in his eye.

By the end of that particular gag, Brady is crying and so is his son- after they both are left terrified.

Once babe.net posted their article on the laxatives ‘prank,’ YouTube released a statement saying ‘content that endangers minors is unacceptable to us and we have strict policies prohibiting child endangerment and harmful and dangerous content. We remove content that violates our policies as soon as we’re made aware of it.’

To eat neatly, you would run the bottom of the spoon along the edge from the inside of the bowl so you don’t get any dribbles.

With cutlery, the knife is usually held in your right hand and the fork in the left, with the tines down.

‘Elbows locked into your sides [when eating with cutlery],’ she explained.

When you pause during eating but have not finished, the utensils are placed in the ‘resting position’, with the knife and fork crossed in the centre of the plate.

And what comes first when preparing scones? The jam or cream?

‘In England, the region where the cream comes from – they are very protective of their cream so they cream first. Australia? We can do whatever we prefer,’ she said.

‘You keep your pinky in and you pinch the handle. You do not actually loop your finger through the handle,’ she said.

England prescribes Gardening and cookery classes to treat depression

Drug abuse is a major problem not only in Africa but also around the world even in developed countries such as the US,Britain,Germany and England.

According to Daily Mail doctors will be from now onwards be encouraged to prescribe depressed patients social activities like cookery or gardening instead of medication to reduce people’s reliance on unsophisticated drugs.

The Government’s new Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock, says he wants to reduce people’s reliance on ‘unsophisticated drugs,his comments come  after it was revealed last week that 7.3 million people were given antidepressant drugs last year – and 70,000 of them were children.

Instead, doctors will be supported to use social prescribing – referring patients to community activities, volunteering, arts groups, gardening and cooking classes.

Mr Hancock, who says £4.5 million will be spent on the initiative, hopes alternative therapies will improve patients’ quality of life.

Experts said last week medicine is being used as a first resort too often in mental health care, and doctors must explore more options before handing out pills.

One in six adults took antidepressants last year, according to NHS figures – half a million more people than in 2015.And now, health secretary Matt Hancock told The Times, doctors will be urged to prescribe patients with holistic therapies instead.

‘Evidence has shown the potential benefits of approaches like social prescribing, which addresses people’s physical and mental well being and has been shown to both improve patients’ quality of life and reduce pressure on other NHS services,’ he told the newspaper.

Social prescribing is a way for GPs and nurses to refer people to non-medical community services.

It can involve sending patients to activities usually run by voluntary groups and community organisations, such as sports, gardening, cookery, arts and crafts and volunteering.

Social prescribing is thought to work as a holistic therapy – improving people’s overall health and well being rather than medicating a single condition.

A study into social prescribing, by experts in Bristol, found it reduces anxiety and improves people’s feelings towards their general health and quality of life, according to the King’s Fund.

Mr Hancock revealed £4.5 million will be used to help some areas of the country set up social prescribing schemes.

He hopes it will ‘reduce the over prescription of unsophisticated drugs,’ The Times reports.

Widespread use of antidepressant drugs causes concern because people may not be given enough help to stop taking them, and they can have withdrawal symptoms.

Money for social prescribing schemes could be used to set up new groups or activities, or to help GP surgeries employ staff to connect patients with existing groups.

Christopher Dowrick, a GP and mental health researcher at the University of Liverpool added: ‘If you say, “You can get better by taking some medicine” that’s having a particular view of yourself.

‘But if you find you can get better by doing things yourself … in the longer term you’re giving people an ability to control their own life.’

The couple have been wowing crowds with their world tour, causing fans to praise the songstress for continuing to perform if she is pregnant.

They are currently enjoying a breather from their tour, before starting the American leg next week, which they will continue until October.

Beyoncé and her beau relaxed in style on the stunning boat, taking time to lounge on the sun deck and document their trip with some snaps.

However their daughter managed to keep them busy as she offered a beach ball, no doubt to play some games aboard the vessel.

Cute: Blue Ivy seemed at ease with the family's company as she chatted away 

The If I Were A Boy hitmaker shaded her face from the rays in a floppy straw hat, which she teamed with colourful cover-up and a pair of thigh-skimming denim shorts.

The couple seemed in good spirits on the outing, amid claims they are expecting their fourth child together – rumours that were only accelerated when Beyonce took to the stage in Paris on Sunday clad in a skintight bodysuit.

She looked sensational as she wowed fans with another energetic performance, yet fans were convinced that she is expecting her fourth child with husband Jay-Z.

The most nominated woman in Grammy Award history gave birth to twins Rumi and Sir in June last year, and is also mother to daughter Blue Ivy, six.

Giving it her all for her performance in Paris, the Love On Top hitmaker dazzled in a figure-hugging white bodysuit that she teamed with denim hot pants and a colourful sequinned jacket.

Sharing clips of her performance on Twitter, fans weren’t bothered by the performance, however, but discussing whether or not she is pregnant again

They posted:

‘so when beyoncé gonna tell us she pregnant. i’m waiting …’; ‘Naw Beyoncé is really pregnant again omg. That’s so beautiful but damn sis MORE?’

‘Why would Beyoncé get pregnant when she’s on tour and already planning the next tour I can’t with y’all let her enjoy the European delicacies’; ‘Beyonce is pregnant’; ”Beyoncé’s pregnant again??!?!?!?!;’ ‘Beyoncé is pregnant again LMFAOOOOOOO’; ‘Beyoncé pregnant again?’

While already parents to Blue, six, and their one-year-old twins, the Beyhive has been quick to note that Beyoncé and Jay Z have quite an affinity for the number four.

Beyonce was born on September 4 while Jay Z (real name Shawn Carter) has a birthday on December 4. The couple were married on April 4, 2008.
