CNN Reporter Laughs At Japan Tsunami

Posted by on Mar 11, 2011 in Featured, Gossip, Humour | 10 comments

Appartantly a CNN reporter by the name of Rosemary Church laughed live on air with regards to the recent Tsunami that struck Japan this morning. She seemed to have a good giggle about her Twitter being “flooded with tweets” about the Tsunami which she found rather amusing. Sick puppy that one…

The backlash is quite hectic on twitter with people calling for her resignation and CNN have pulled her off the air with immediate effect. I don’t know if that is a permanent move but eish, that lady is not going to be very well liked after this! Somehow I don’t think a little public apology is going to save your career after this one Rose.

What a shame. She was a pretty betty. Oh well.

If you want to follow the lovely, now probably unemployed, Rosemary Church, you can simply click here to throw abuse her way!

I posted a live stream of the Earthquake/Tsunami earlier.

SA Hoax Email Back

Posted by on Sep 14, 2009 in Cape Town, Gossip | 0 comments

Johannesburg – An old hoax e-mail, which warns people against the use of canola oil, is once again being circulated in South Africa.

This week the Cancer Association of South Africa, (Cansa) asked that people delete the e-mail and not forward it.

Dr Carl Albrecht, Cansa’s head of research, first laid eyes on the e-mail, which alleged among other things that canola was a kind a turnip seed “which was so poisonous that it was not even eaten by insects”, in July 2000.

Albrecht said the e-mail amounted to “industrial sabotage and attempts to badmouth an excellent product”.

“There is nothing wrong with canola oil. This oil is of such exceptional quality that Cansa endorses it as one of its ‘healthy choice’ products.”

According to Cansa, peer-reviewed research showed that the good balance between omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in canola could help prevent cancer.

Sue Janse van Rensburg, Cansa’s chief executive, asked for the public’s help in quashing the e-mail by not forwarding it to friends. According to the Canola Council of Canada, canola oil is one of the healthiest types of cooking oil.

Microsoft To Put Their Word In

Posted by on Sep 12, 2009 in Gossip | 0 comments

Microsoft has overturned a ban on it selling its flagship Word software, imposed after a patent dispute.

The block was imposed by a Texan court following a ruling that its use of formatting language XML in Word 2003 and 2007 infringed patents.

Under the ruling Microsoft was ordered to pay Canadian patent owner i4i $290m (£177m) damages and also told to stop sales of the relevant versions of Word.

The ban on sales was due to come in to force in mid-October.

The ruling was made on 12 August in a Texas court following a long-running dispute between i4i and Microsoft.

I4i’s patent was filed in 1998 and outlines ways for “manipulating the architecture and the content of a document separately from each other” and invokes XML as a way to let people format text documents.

XML, or Extensible Markup Language, is a formatting system that preserves the structure of information, such as that in a spreadsheet, as it is passed around and handled by different programs.

Following the 12 August ruling Microsoft filed a request to stay the injunction and also asked for the case to be put on a fast track so its appeal could be heard quickly.

The US court said Microsoft had met the conditions needed to grant the stay. Arguments in Microsoft’s appeal against the earlier ruling are due to be heard on 23 September.

“We are happy with the result and look forward to presenting our arguments on the main issues on September 23,” said Kevin Kutz, a Microsoft spokesman, in a statement.

Facebook At Heart of Murder Trial

Posted by on Sep 12, 2009 in Gossip | 0 comments

A jealous husband killed his wife after she changed her status from ‘married’ to ‘single’ on her Facebook profile, a British court heard yesterday.

Brian Lewis had become resentful at the amount of time his common-law wife Hayley Jones, 26, spent on the social networking internet site.

He finally snapped in the early hours of March 12 this year, stabbed her and strangled her to death, the jury was told.

He telephoned 999 but fled the murder scene, the home he shared with Miss Jones and their four children. He later drove to a nearby police station and gave himself up to officers.

It emerged that Lewis, 31, left the children – aged three to ten – in the house to discover the lifeless body of their mother in the living room.

In Cardiff Crown Court on Tuesday Lewis, of Phillipstown, New Tredegar, denied the murder of his partner. The jury was told that problems surfaced in their relationship shortly after Lewis lost his job.

Miss Jones, who had until then stayed at home to care for their children, went out and found work as a care assistant.

Prosecutor Mark Evans QC told the court that around the same time Miss

Jones had ‘started to expand her social horizons,’ adding: ‘She had begun spending a lot of time on the internet chat site Facebook.

‘Brian Lewis was to state in interview and to other people that she had been quite secretive about this. For example, preventing him from accessing the site and switching the computer off to prevent him from seeing any of the content.’

Ten days before her death, as their relationship deteriorated, Miss Jones changed her Facebook profile from ‘married’ to ‘single’. The lawyer continued: ‘She made it clear their relationship was over.
