Chelsea pound United, Liverpool exposed

Chelsea came from behind three times to beat Manchester United 5-4 after extra time and book a spot in the League Cup quarterfinals on Wednesday, earning revenge for Sunday's controversial 3-2 league defeat.
Holders Liverpool were knocked out by boss Brendan Rodgers' former side Swansea City while Norwich City beat Tottenham Hotspur.

 Another high-scoring thriller ensued at Stamford Bridge although both Alex Ferguson and Roberto Di Matteo elected to send out vastly different teams in the often maligned secondary cup competition.

 United netted first through Ryan Giggs before David Luiz scored for Chelsea from the penalty spot.
Javier Hernandez took the lead back for United after another defensive mistake, before defender Gary Cahill again levelled matters on 52 minutes.

 United again went infront just before the hour mark thanks to Nani's cool chip, but another penalty, this time from substitute Eden Hazard, sent the match into extra time.

 Daniel Sturridge, who had missed a host of chances throughout, nabbed Chelsea's fourth by latching onto a poor backpass and there was even time for a Ramires goal and a Giggs penalty.

 Liverpool boss Rodgers, who left Swansea in the close season, saw the Welsh side win 3-1 at Anfield to humiliate his stuttering side.

 Chico grabbed the opener for Swansea in the 34th minute as Liverpool also played a much changed side with forgotten man Joe Cole getting a rare look-in but failing to impress.

 The weakened hosts went 2-0 down midway through the second half through Nathan Dyer before substitute Luis Suarez pulled one back and Jonathan de Guzman sealed Swansea's first ever League Cup quarterfinal spot late on.

 Norwich will also be in the last eight after coming from behind to beat Tottenham 2-1 at home with Simeon Jackson grabbing the 87th minute winner.

ARSENE WENGER hailing his heroes as they completed the "Greatest comeback in League Cup"

ARSENE WENGER hailed his Arsenal heroes as they completed the greatest comeback in League Cup history to beat Reading. The Gunners fought back from 4-0 down to force extra-time, before taking their tally to seven. Wenger said: “It may be one of my greatest victories during my time here. We went from disaster to salvaging our pride.

“You cannot play for Arsenal and give up — no matter what the score is. “The players understood at half-time they could not go out again with the same performance. "We just had hope but it didn’t look like it was going to come off. But at least we got our disastrous first half out of our system.”

Reading raced ahead through Jason Roberts’ opener, a Laurent Koscielny own goal, Mikele Leigertwood’s strike and a Noel Hunt header. Yet Theo Walcott pulled one back, then made it 4-4 deep in injury time after Olivier Giroud and Koscielny had netted for the Gunners. Marouane Chamakh and Pavel Pogrebnyak exchanged extra-time goals before Walcott and Chamakh settled it in the dying moments.

Wenger added: “In the second half we created chance after chance but, with 89 minutes gone, it was still 4-2. We needed two goals and the miracle happened. “I don’t remember anything like our first half in my time here. They just scored when they wanted. “They played well, at a higher pace than we did. We didn’t find our game at all.” Arsenal surrendered a 4-0 lead against Newcastle in the Premier League last year. Wenger said: “Reading had a fantastic first half. I know what it is like to be caught when you’re 4-0 up.

“At 4-1, I thought it was possible.” Winger Walcott said: “I’ve never been involved in anything like that, it was an unbelievable game. “We started sloppy and had to wake up. The boss told us we had to start playing. It wasn’t good enough and it was not Arsenal. “We showed what we could do and never gave up. That is what the guys did and we are absolutely knackered now.”

Royals boss Brian McDermott was floored by the result. He said: “It’s like a funeral. I wasn’t happy at half-time. Walcott’s goal gave them impetus and we didn’t need that. “It was kamikaze football in the second half and in extra-time, even when we got back to 5-5.” McDermott was unhappy that ref Kevin Friend played so much injury time at the end of 90 minutes, with Walcott striking in the SIXTH added minute.

McDermott said: “The ref put another two minutes on top of the four to make it six but that’s another story. You can’t get the time as wrong as that... but he did. “I felt we needed to get the fifth goal — a ridiculous thing to say if you are 4-1 up. “It’s the worst defeat of my career. The first 35 minutes we were extraordinary. It was bizarre to say the least. “It’s embarrassing but we have to take that on the chin. We’re all gutted as we should have won comfortably.”


As we look forward to the Man. United vs. Chelsea Game.

Woman raped in passageway by stranger on night out, was sexually assaulted AGAIN by second spectator as she lay vulnerable

Mustafa Yussuf, 21, was jailed for seven years for raping the woman on New Year's Eve

A woman who was dragged into a passageway and raped after a night out, was subjected to a second horrifying tribulation by another man as she lay recovering from the attack.

Mustafa Yussuf was the first to prey on the woman as she walked through Manchester city centre on New year's Eve, marching her into Church Street car park and raping her in a nearby lane.

After the assault the then 20-year-old fled the scene, leaving the woman helpless. It was then that, instead of assisting her, another man pounced on the woman and raped her. The distressing details of the double rape emerged as Yussuf, now 21, from Manchester, was jailed for seven years for the attack.

He claimed to have had a consensual encounter with the woman but denied rape.

But a jury at Manchester Crown Court trial rejected his account and found him guilty. Judge Martin Steiger QC, sentencing, said he ‘hadn’t the slightest doubt’ that Yussuf was ‘perfectly aware’ the woman was too drunk to consent to any activity. The court heard that the ‘mature’ woman had drunk to excess because of relationship problems, with CCTV showing she was unable to stand.

She was refused re-entry to the nightclub when she asked to be allowed in to search for her lost handbag. In the aftermath of the double-rape attack she needed strangers’ help to get home and she was unable to remember what had happened to her for two hours. Zoe Nield, defending, said: ‘This offence does appear to be an isolated incident - it was out of character for this defendant.’

The victim told court that her life had been shattered by the attack and had been isolated by a fear of going out. Judge Steiger said: ‘At some point in the course of her ordeal she was raped by another individual. ‘There was never any charge laid against this defendant [Yussuf] for being party to that incident, which the complainant found in many ways the most traumatic feature of her ordeal.’Another man was arrested for the second rape but released without charge.

Hurricane Sandy update with pictures!

Hurricane Sandy has banged into the East Coast around 6.30pm EST as millions of Americans were warned that the worst was still to come tonight.

Hurricane Sandy had laid waste to large parts of the coast throughout the day, leaving more than two million without light in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island and Virginia while whole cities have been flooded and billions of dollars of damage has expected.

But as darkness fell, Sandy was about to make landfall at Cape May, New Jersey. Winds rose up to 90mph with fresh warnings that the 'most severe part of the storm is now beginning'.

Storm surges of more than 12ft have already been recorded in Long Island, with waters rising quickly in Lower Manhattan as high wave approaches. Howling winds of 100mph have been reported on the RFK Bridge in upper Manhattan as gales were expected to last for hours.

In New York Mayor Bloomberg told citizens at a 6pm press conference that: 'The most severe part of the storm is now beginning' and warned people that the time for evacuation was now over and to stay indoors, with the peak surge in the city's harbor lasting until 10.30pm (EST).

In Atlantic City officials were trying to rescue around 500 people trapped in their homes during the direct hit. Most of the city's 40,000 residents had evacuated as directed.

In New Jersey Governor Chris Christie told a press conference at 5.30pm (EST) that the hurricane had doubled its speed, meaning it should make landfall several hours ahead of schedule at around 7pm.

CBS reported that wind gusts of 38 mph have been felt in New York City, while winds of 41 mph have rattled Boston.

Across Norfolk, Virginia, residents were knee-deep in floodwaters as they travelled to work or scrambled to stock up on last-minute groceries. In the southeast of the state, tides are expected to run between five and eight feet above normal.

In Boone, North Carolina, snow began falling at 8am; the Appalachian mountain town is expected to suffer a miserable few days with snow, rain and temperatures struggling to get out of the 30s. Up to eight inches of snow is expected but, in places of higher elevation, there may be as many as 12, while in West Virginia, 2 to 3 feet of snow could fall.

In Oak Orchard, Delaware, rescue efforts by the National Guard and local authorities were already underway for residents who had failed to heed the mandatory evacuation issued over the weekend.

In Ocean City, New Jersey, residents snapped photos of the extreme flooding, as officials added: 'The ocean has met the bay. We have never seen anything like this.' Off the coast of North Carolina, the U.S. Coast Guard rescued 14 of the 16 crew members who abandoned the replica ship HMS Bounty, using helicopters to lift them from life rafts. The Coast Guard continued to search for the two missing crew members about 160 miles from the storm. The hurricane could cause a total of $20 billion in economic damage and losses to homes, travellers and retailers forced to close stores.

Oops! Gay sperm donor might pay out for unknown children

Mark Langridge didn’t want children, but his lesbian friends did – so he agreed to donate his sperm. Now his ‘act of kindness’ has come back to haunt him 13 years later, after he received a letter demanding child support payments. Mr Langridge has not spoken to the family he helped create since 2004.

He was not named on the birth certificates of the two children, and played no role in their upbringing – but the Child Support Agency insists he has to pay £26 a week to support them. He says he cannot afford the payments, which will add up to £8,000 before both children reach adulthood. The 47-year-old book-keeper from Essex has been in a relationship with his partner Shaun Keeble, 37, for 17 years.

‘Me and Shaun were not interested in having children of our own,’ he said. ‘When the idea [of donating sperm] was suggested, we thought it sounded like a lovely thing to do. But the last few months have been a complete nightmare. ‘I feel as if I am the victim of a state-sponsored blackmail plot ... It was purely an act of kindness on my part and now I am being made to pay.’

Mr Langridge and Mr Keeble met the women in a gay nightclub in Southend in 1997, and became good friends. When one of the women revealed she was desperate to have children Mr Langridge agreed to help, as long as there were no strings attached. ‘I did not ask for anything to be documented legally and with hindsight perhaps I should have done,’ he said.

After the birth of a baby girl in late 1998, Mr Langridge was asked to donate again – and a second girl was born in 2000.When the children were young, Mr Langridge remained in touch with the mother, and saw the girls at social events. He said he was surprised when introduced as their father and later advised the children to ask their mother to explain the facts of their birth. The two couples eventually drifted apart, and apart from occasional letters from the girls Mr Langridge has had no contact with the family since 2004.

Misery for UK travellers (Photos)

Misery for UK travellers as 'Frankenstorm' Sandy grows to 1,000 miles wide, closing airports and turning New York into a ghost town

BA and Virgin Atlantic cancel all flights from London to East Coast states today - affecting those on half-term holiday

Up to 2,500 holidaymakers could be left stranded in New York City as state and many other areas come to standstill
More than 7,000 flights cancelled globally as Philadelphia and Newark airports each have more than 1,200 cancellations

Hurricane Sandy could be the largest storm to ever hit US and 65 people have been reported dead across Caribbean

Thousands of Britons were today stranded in America as the biggest storm in US history threatened to wipe out vast swathes of the country’s East Coast.

Hurricane Sandy is set to affect up to 50 million people, forcing the shutdown of transport networks, schools and financial markets in New York City and beyond, sending coastal residents fleeing for higher ground, and threatening a dangerous mix of high winds, heavy rain and a surging 11ft wall of water.

The hurricane has now grown to 1,000 miles wide and is increasing in speed as it hurtles towards New Jersey where it is expected to make landfall later today. New York is due to feel the effects from 2pm local time (6pm GMT). The storm will peak tonight and then subside in the early hours of the morning.

Dozens of flights to and from East Coast states in the US have already been cancelled. Britons could be left in the U.S. for days as flights back to London and Manchester have been cancelled and those with trips booked during the half-term school holidays are being told they cannot fly to US destinations.

British Airways and Virgin Atlantic have cancelled all of their flights between London Heathrow and the East Coast including New York, Baltimore, Washington, Boston and Philadelphia. Vincent McAviney, 24, from London, was due to be travelling to Washington but his flight was cancelled.

It comes as nearly 7,500 flights have been canceled globally according to the flight-tracking service FlightAware as tens of thousands of stranded passengers wait out the storm.

The massive storm threatens to bring a near halt to air travel for at least two days in a key region for both domestic and international flights.

Both Philadelphia International Airport and Newark International Airport, a hub for United Airlines, each had more than 1,200 cancellations over the course of yesterday and today.

Delays rippled across the U.S., affecting travelers in cities such as San Francisco to Chicago, and disruptions spread to Europe and Asia, where airlines canceled or delayed flights to New York and Washington from cities that are major travel hubs including Berlin, Paris, Tokyo and Hong Kong.

Travelers such as businessman Alan Shrem, who was trying to return home to Boca Raton, Florida after attending trade fairs in Hong Kong and China's Guangzhou, were facing long waits for a new flight.

The American Female Celeb is driving the budget of her next world tour by splitting out on diamond bracelets.

She’s bought a load to give to VIPs so they can have an unforgettable experience.

She’s also ordered a diamond-encrusted microphone and mic stand for the shows.

A source said: “She’s been offering to pay for the diamonds out of her own pocket because management weren’t devoted.

“She wants everyone who appears at the concert to be totally overwhelmed.”

Hawaii In Danger As Tsunami Threatens

Hawaii a state in U.S. is threatened with great disaster "Tsunami." Sirens blaring across parts of Hawaii urged residents to seek higher ground, as a tsunami -- triggered by a sizable 7.7-magnitude earthquake in western Canada -- advanced toward them.

The waves between 3 and 7 feet are expected to rope the islands beginning about 10:28 p.m. Saturday (4:28 a.m. Sunday ET), the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.

"Basically this tsunami is pointed right at us," said Gerard Fryer, senior geophysicist at the center.
The impact could last for hours.

"It's not just one wave, it's a succession of waves," Fryer said. "We are recommending coastal evacuation."

ChiboyChuks opinion: Please, I advice all Hawaii residents to evacuate with immediate effect. #God's Guidance

PHOTOS: Showing the cramped lives lived by over 2million California prisoners

These revealing pictures illustrate America's prison system at breaking point - with overcrowding in the nation's jails at its highest for eight years. Correctional institutions across the U.S are bursting at the seams with more than two million Americans behind bars. The worst hit state, California, houses 140,000 inmates when its 33 adult prisons are only designed to hold a maximum of 80,000.

Overall, the Bureau of Prisons Network is around 39 per cent over 'rated capacity' - their highest level since 2004 - with that figure expected to soar to 45 per cent above its limit by 2018. Inmates are housed in a gymnasium at the California Institution for Men state prison in Chino, California. The Supreme Court has ordered California to release more than 30,000 inmates over the next two years

One inmate is forced to sleep next to phones where fellow prisoners make phone calls home at the Orange County jail. The Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego, pictured, is another of those drastically overstretched by increased prisoner numbers. So bad is the situation in California that the Supreme Court has slapped an order on the state ruling that 30,000 prisoners must be released by the middle of next year, labelling overcrowded conditions in its jails as 'unconstitutional'.

The prison system has seen a stream of new offenders in the past five years and is still massively overstretched despite extra space being added. Wardens and experts now fear that increased overcrowding and an increasing lack of privacy for inmates will see them more prone to lashing out and causing trouble. Many prisons have had to create makeshift living quarters for detainees in public spaces such as gymnasiums, with some inmates having to sleep in bunks of three, while some cells which are only designed to house one person are home to up to three.

Inmates are being allowed less time in communal areas such as the cafeteria, TV rooms and recreation yards. The country is streets ahead of the rest of the world in terms of the number of prisoners per 100,000 population, with Russia the second highest and South Africa in third. The European average took fourth place. Prisons have had to reduce the amount of time that inmates are spending in public spaces such as the cafeteria or the exercise yard, pictured.

ChiboyChuks Opinion: Please, release some of the old prisoners who's got some kinda change in them. Thats the only way to solve the issue.

New York Nanny Stabs Herself in Mother's Presence

The New York nanny suspected in the killings of two children in her care began knifing herself when their mother entered the bathroom and saw the bodies in the bathtub, police said. "We believe now that the nanny began to stab herself as the woman entered the room," Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told reporters in a revised account of Thursday's events. "We initially thought that had already been done but now information is coming out that she did it as the mother entered the bathroom." Earlier, police had said that Marina Krim found nanny Yoselyn Ortega, 50, on the bathroom floor of the family's Upper West Side luxury apartment with self-inflicted wounds.

In the tub lay the clothed bodies of two of Krim's children: Leo, who had recently celebrated his second birthday with "Pinkalicious-inspired cupcakes;" and his 6-year-old sister, Lucia, who had performed "beautifully in her ballet recital" in May. Both children had been repeatedly stabbed, police said. Ortega started stabbing herself in the neck with a kitchen knife, police said. Her wrists were slit. "The charge is still to be determined," Kelly said.

Krim had left the two children with the nanny, known as "Josie," to take her third child, 3-year-old Nessie, to a swim lesson at a nearby YMCA, Kelly said. She had expected to meet the nanny at a dance class for the 6-year-old around 5:30 p.m. When the nanny and children didn't show up, Krim went up to the apartment, where she found the lights were off, police said. Krim then returned to the lobby and asked a doorman whether he had seen her two other children leave with the nanny; he had not. "There comes a time when she goes looking for her children and enters the bathroom and finds her 6-year-old daughter and son stabbed to death in the tub," Kelly said.
Leo, left, and Lucia Krim were discovered dead in a bathtub by their mother.

That's when neighbors heard a scream. The children's father, Kevin Krim, a senior vice president for CNBC Digital and former Yahoo executive, was en route back home from the West Coast. Police broke the news to him at John F. Kennedy International Airport. "A member of the CNBC family has suffered an unimaginable loss," NBC Universal said in a statement. "The sadness that we all feel for Kevin, Marina and their family is without measure."

The nanny was taken to a hospital, where she was in critical but stable condition. The bodies of the two children were removed from the building on a single stretcher and taken to a hospital where they were pronounced dead. Ortega was heavily sedated and under police watch on Friday at Weill Cornell Medical Center, said Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Browne. Kelly said she was breathing with the aid of a tube and unable to talk.

Gangnam Style: Psy explains, with english lyrics

But what do the lyrics of the song "Gangnam Style" mean, and what's the story behind Psy's trademark dance move?
If you're just hearing about the Gangnam craze for the first time, here's a quick cheat sheet to get you up to speed.

LUCY NICHOLSON/REUTERS Host Kevin Hart (L) does Psy’s signature “horse-riding dance” with the South Korean rapper during the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.

Gangnam is a wealthy neighborhood in the South Korean city of Seoul where young people go to party. In the song, Psy describes the kind of guy he is and the kind of girl he wants, painting caricatures of the ostentatious culture of people who hang out in Gangnam.
As The Atlantic pointed out in an in-depth article last month, behind the flashy costumes and killer dance moves in Psy's video, there's a subtle commentary on class in South Korea.

It roughly means something like 'Your man has Gangnam Style.' 'Oppa,' which literally means 'older brother,' is an affectionate term girls use to address older guy friends or a boyfriend. It can also be used as a first-person pronoun, as PSY does here — in this case, he's telling a woman that he has Gangnam style.
Kevin Mazur/WireImage Getting on that high horse. Korean rapper Psy shows his signature move, which he calls the “horse-riding dance.”

"It's a horse-riding dance," PSY explained in an interview with NY1 anchor Michelle Park. "So there is an invisible horse, and you're on it." (In the video, Psy first does the dance in the middle of a posh-looking stable.)
The singer manages to turn an activity typically associated with the wealthy into a hilarious, arm-flapping dance move.

It's pronounced like 'sigh,' short for 'psycho.'

He signed with Schoolboy Records, the label of Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Brown, so we may soon be seeing more of him stateside.

WONDERFUL: Body Art Car Crash (PHOTOS)

Emma Hack used 17 men and women to build a smashed car sculpture in support of the Motor Accident Commision of South Australia, she also used it to highlight the dangers and disadvantages of low-level speeding. Each person had to stay knotted as she applied up to five layers of paint to their body, in which case they mix rather beautifully. It took a total of 18 hours to complete.

"Technically, it's probably the most difficult job I have ever done," Ms. Emma Hack said in a statement. "It's quite magical how it's turned out."

Tricks turned out, in knowing your players. In a making-of video, Emma Hack explains that she used athletes and body builders for the stacked section in the middle of the car, since they'd likely have enough endurance to bear the weight of the other participants. A team of acrobats filled out the front of the car, though several crates helped ease the physical strain a bit.

Girl's Ambition To Build "Pontiac Fiero" Prior Age 16

Michigan couple years back, Jerry DiMaria signed up for an online forum and started a new thread: "A few months ago," he wrote, "our 12 year old DAUGHTER came in and said, 'Dad, Mom, can we talk for a minute?'"

She said. I'd build a Pontiac Fiero, have four years to restore it, to learn how to budget and build -- and drive -- before 16. It'd get good gas mileage. They'd never fear a breakdown or a crooked mechanic. I'd do it all by myself.

Seems like madness. Her Parent agreed to make her dreams come true. They lived in Michigan. Her dad a Corvette guy, and the Fiero wasn't produced in her lifetime, but she had seen the little sports car at an auto show, and knew it was her "dream car".

Her father "DiMaria" wrote. Maybe she'd forget about it with the start of soccer or a new "Hunger Games" book, but she'd never come to them with an idea like this before. Why not try? "Is it just me, or do I have a really cool daughter?"

After her dad's first message in the forum, they wanted photos of the car and updates on the project. They've all got a car in the garage, or a car in their head, but nobody could remember a build, sparked by a 12-year-old girl with wily curls and a wardrobe of oversized Central Michigan University shirts.

She's 14 now, she's done most of the work, but it turns out she hasn't done it alone. Every member of her family has been there to teach her how to handle tools or sew the interior fabric. Math and science learned at school are really working in the garage. And then there are the hundreds of Fiero lovers helping her to finish the project by 2014, when she'll turn 16.

ChiboyChuks Opinion: Congrats girl! Bravo! I believe strongly that "Impossibles Are Possible" Just Believe & Work Hard... A little more and the whole world would be celebrating with you.

INTERNET PROVIDERS: To Instigate Warning To Customers Who Bandit Content

Becoming more difficult to download TV shows, movies, music online, illegally. A new alert system, rolling out over the next two months, will repeatedly warn and possibly punish people violating digital copyrights. The Copyright Alert System was announced last July and has been four years in the making.

If you use AT&T, Cablevision, Comcast, Time Warner, or Verizon as your Internet service provider, you could receive the first of one of these notes starting in the next two months.The Internet provider is delivering the message, but the legwork is being done by the copyright owners, which will monitor peer-to-peer networks such as BitTorrent. They use a service called MarkMonitor, which uses a combination of people and automated systems to spot illegal downloading. It will collect the IP addresses of offenders, but no personal information. The IP addresses are turned over to the Internet providers, which will match up the address with the right customer and send the notification.

The warning system is described as a graduated response. First the Internet provider will let the customer know that their Internet connection is being used to download content illegally. The note will include information to steer them away from their life of crime, including tips on how they can download content legally.There will also be tips on securing Internet connections, just in case you were unaware that your neighbor was downloading season three of "Dexter" using your unprotected wireless network."The progressive series of alerts is designed to make consumers aware of activity that has occurred using their Internet accounts, educate them on how they can prevent such activity from happening again," the CCI said in its announcement today. After the educational phase, the customers will be asked to acknowledge that they received the warning. If they continue to download content illegally, the alerts will threaten mild punishments, such as forcing the copyright violator to read "educational materials," or throttling their Internet connection so that it is slow, making it harder to download large files.

Today's announcement claims that terminating the Internet service is not one of the options. If a customer feels they are being wrongly accused, they can ask for a review, which will cost them $35 according to the Verge. The entire system will be overseen by an organization called the Center for Copyright Information, which includes content owners, such as the Motion Picture Association of America and Recording Industry Association of America, as well as individual members including Disney, Sony Pictures, Fox, EMI and Universal. Each ISP will have a slightly different version of the system.

Dead Man Appears At His Interment

In SAO PAULO - A 41-year-old car washer frightened his family when he interrupted a funeral being held for him at his mother's home in the town of Alagoinhas in northeastern Brazil. Police inspector Roberto Lima said on tuesday by telephone, that on Sunday Jose Marcos Araujo identified a body at the city morgue as being that of his brother, Gilberto.

Lima said that Jose Marcos took the body to his mother's home where a wake was held. "The confusion started when news started circulating that a car washer had been shot dead," Jose Marcos' wife, Ana Paula, told the UOL Internet news portal. "Police called my husband and told him that his brother had been killed and his body was at the morgue." Lima said the confusion was "understandable."

"The two men closely resembled each other and both worked as car washers," Lima said adding that the man whose body was in the morgue was named Genivaldo Santos Gama. He said further information on Gama was not immediately available. A few hours before the Monday burial "a friend of Gilberto's saw him walking down the street and told him that his family was mourning him," he said. "So he went to his mother's home to let everyone know he was very much alive."

When Araujo showed up at his wake "some people fainted and others were so scared that they ran away. It was a big shock," family friend Maria Menezes told the G1 online news site. Gilberto's mother Marina Santana told reporters "I am overjoyed. What mother wouldn't be after being told that her son is dead and then sees him alive."

Beautiful Poem About Life

I've seen castles made out of sand..
Met people who believe destiny is engraved on the palm of their hands..
I've seen people change their faith..
Experienced love change into hate..
I've seen people grow younger with age..
And a bird who wouldn't fly out of an open cage..
I've seen love sold for money..
People who are devastated inside but outside they're funny..
I've seen the unicorn fall in love with the toad..
People who owned half the city have now hit the road..
I've learned to expect the unexpected..
Perfection doesn't exist, we are all defected..
Everyone cries, some just hide their tears..
They say coal turns into diamond over a thousnd years..
Someone may believe you are one in a million..
For others you are just another nobody in the billions..
So live life with all that you have..
Cherish all your moments whether happy or sad..
Feel blessed with what you are..
Coz Life is too short for regrets and comes with an expiry date, so live life to the fullest and cherish every moment !!!

He however, prayed to God to grant his daughter’s soul eternal rest.The State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ralph Uzoigwe, when called said that the police are yet to be pithed about the incident and would contact the press after further investigations.

ChiboyChuks Opinion: This is communist suicide committed by a class teacher who is irresponsible, not able to handle pressure and emotions. I believe the law should take its full ground.

The World's Smallest Dog

In a world where everything seems to keep getting supersized, man's best friend keeps getting smaller. First there was Beyonce, the tiny pup who fit in a tablespoon at her birth in March and at two weeks old was just the size of an iPhone. Then there was Milly, the minuscle Chihuahua from Puerto Rico who had to be fed with an eyedropper when she was born in January and at three months stood just 3 inches tall.

Now meet Meysi, a tiny Terrier from Poland who weighed just 1.58 ounces at her birth three months ago. Meysi's owner, Anna Pohl of Jarocin, Poland, told her local newspaper she didn't think her dog would make it and that it took all of Pohl's strength to keep Meysi going. "The worst was the first six weeks," Pohl, who fed Mesyi with a syringe, told Gazeta Jarocinska, according to a translation. "[I got] zero sleep. I was feeding her day and night, every half hour. Sometimes I ran out of strength, had to call out of work."

Meysi grew to her current weight of 3.25 ounces but is not expected to grow much more, veterinarians tell Pohl. That means it could be a real dog race, literally, when she, Beyonce and Milly all meet the required age limit of one-year to be considered for the title of World's Smallest Dog by the Guinness Book of World Records. The competition will go down to the whiskers as they face off against the current titleholders, a long-haired, female Chihuahua named Boo Boo from Kentucky who is the smallest living dog in terms of height at 4 inches tall, and Heaven Sent Brandy, a female Chihuahua from Florida who is the smallest living dog for length at 6 inches "from the nose to the tip of the tail,"

According To The Guiness World Record Sites

ChiboyChuks Opinion: I'm surprised... I suppose Meysi is the world's smallest, looking at the picture with the bottle in front.
