Maid Abuse in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabian employer has hammered 13 nails and 5 needles from a Sri Lankan housemaid! LP Ariyawathie, 49, told staff at Kamburupitiya Hospital her employer inflicted the injuries as a punishment.

X-rays showed that there were 24 nails and needles in her body. Doctors said those remaining inside her body posed no immediate threat to her life. The nails were up to 2in (5cm) long, a hospital official said. “The surgery is successful and she is recovering now,” Dr Satharasinghe said, according to news agency Associated Press. Ms Ariyawathie, a mother of three, underwent a three-hour procedure. Doctors said they would carry out further surgery later to remove the remaining nails.

Time Magazine: Aisha’s Cover Story

South African photographer Jodi Bieber took this picture of 18-year-old Aisha, a victim of the Taliban war on women. Her husband chopped of her ears and nose for running away from his abusive family.

This picture has raised so many debates throughout the media on whether the Americans should stay or leave Afghanistan.

I feel that the situation has become worse, when there is a war, there are guns, Taliban men with guns is not a good idea.

But what really breaks my heart is beautiful women like Aisha have to suffer, their pictures are on magazines that the do not even know. It’s terrible to take advantage of such sad stories for the cause of war  propaganda.

  Aisha is soon to undergo surgery in the United States to rebuild her face.

Airplane Suite Anyone?

Behold the new addition to Singapore Airlines: The Singapore Suite.

The suite is a private room which costs upwards of $15,000, aboard the plane.

The Singapore Suite features a traditional bed—not one converted from a seat—an armchair that was made in Italy from Italian craftsmen Poltrona Frau, a 23-inch TV monitor and a full-length wardrobe. For the passenger’s dining pleasure, the Singapore Suite offers gourmet dining and a choice between Dom Perignon or Krug champagne.

It’s a suite life.. Get it? HAHAHAH

Octopus Paul: We need you

Eight legged Paul, after accurately predicting 8 FIFA world cup results, he is my new super hero. He is extremely wise and useful. I was thinking this morning I have so many things that waste my time everyday and I need Paul to help me out. Her is a list of decisions I need Paul to make for me:

1. What to wear for work

2. What to have for breakfast

3.  Is it ok to wear a wig sometimes?

4. Should I cut my hair?

These are just a few of the most difficult decision I have to make. Maybe the best solution for indecisiveness is Mr. Paul Octopus

French MPs vote to ban Islamic full veil in public

So, the French have actually voted against the veil. There were 335 votes for the bill and only one against in the 557-seat National Assembly I don’t know how I feel about this actually. I mean, I don’t like it when my doctor is veiled, I wanna see her face. I don’t feel there is something wrong with veiled women walking around Paris, it will bring out the architecture lol. No seriously, I think that people should have the freedom to wear what they want.

What do you guys think?

 

Death By Stoning, Iran

Can you believe it?  The human brain has been capable of finding a way to make it to the moon in a tin can, to invent the toilet flush, they have also been able to teach a chimpanzee to communicate through sign language.. But Iran still cannot change the law of stoning a woman to death because she has confessed to adultery under pressure.

For now, her case has been on hold because of all the publicity. I hope all the people who are involved in stoning women get their penises bitten off by monkies.

Younger Wife = Happy Marriage

According to experts,  the secret to a happy marriage for men is choosing a wife who is smarter and at least five years younger than you. They found that if the wife was five or more years older than her husband, they were more than three times as likely to divorce than if they were the same age.

If the age gap is reversed, and the man is older than the woman, the odds of marital bliss are higher.

Dr Emmanuel Fragniere and colleagues do say that men and women choose partners “on the basis of love, physical attraction, similarity of taste, beliefs and attitudes, and shared values.”

But they say that using “objective factors” such as age, education and cultural origin “may help reduce divorce”.
