A white glamour model who spent £50,000 on surgery in a bid to transform herself into an 'exotic Barbie' appeared on TV to tell the world she now 'identifies as black woman'.

Former air hostess Martina Big, who claims she is 28 and a size 6, has boosted her breasts to a size 32S, and used tanning injections and her own powerful 50-tube sunbed to achieve her 'dark, crispy brown' complexion.

The German tanning addict, who claims her breasts are 'Europe's biggest', appeared on The Maury Show where she told the host: 'I am black. That is my race. I can't wait to go to Africa because I hear the food is tasty.

'It's better to be black, the feeling inside is just better.'

In January, Martina had three melanin boosting injections that have turned her a deep shade of mahogany.

'I am the proud owner of black skin,' she tells the audience. 'If they start fading, I won't feel less black. I will ask them for more.'

Martina, who describes herself as '80 per cent black' because she still 'has a lot to learn', was joined by husband Michael, who has also had the tanning injections but identifies as 'medium'.

When asked if she thinks she's offending people who were born black, she said: 'No, I don't want to. I know some feel attacked but it's not my intention. I do it for myself and only talk to people who want to talk with me about this.'

The Carolina Reaper has been the undisputed world’s hottest pepper for over 4 years now, but its days at the top are numbered. There’s a new kid on the block and it’s apparently twice as hot as the Reaper. This is “Pepper X”.

Pepper X is the brainchild of Smokin’ Ed Currie, “founder, president, mad scientist & chef of PuckerButt Pepper Company”, and the same man who created the now world famous Carolina Reaper. Apparently, he started working on this scorching hot chilli some 10 years ago, crossing various pepper variety and constantly upping the Scoville rating, to the point where it now scores a mouth burning 3.18 million Scoville units. To put that into perspective, Jalapenos are rated at between 10,000 – 20,000 units, while the current Guinness record holder for world’s hottest pepper, the Carolina Reaper, scores an average of 1.6 million units on the Scoville scale. So it’s safe to say that Pepper X is pretty hot.

So hot in fact that consuming it raw is potentially deadly. The extremely high capsaicin content, the active component that produces a sensation of burning in any tissue with which it comes into contact, can send your immune system into overdrive and trick your body into thinking that it is experiencing real burning. For this reason, Pepper X is currently only available as an ingredient of the hottest sauce ever created, The Last Dab.

The sauce consists of Pepper X mash, distilled vinegar, ginger root, turmeric, coriander, cumin and dry mustard, making it very flavorful while only compromising on hotness. By itself, Pepper X comes in at 3.18 Scoville units, but The Last Dab sauce is still hotter than the Carolina Reaper, at 2.4 million units, and on par with the current unofficial world’s hottest pepper, Dragon’s Breath.

Black Death plague warning: Outbreak confirmed by World Health Organisation

The WHO, which has been working alongside Madagascar’s Ministry of Health, confirmed more than 231 people had been infected with the contagious plague and officials have warned the risk of the epidemic spreading is “high”.
More than 50 million people in Europe were killed by the Black Death in the 1300s, which many historians believe was caused by several killer diseases including the pneumonic plague.
Eastern and central Madagascar have been worst hit by the outbreak, sparking emergency funding from the WHO.
A WHO official said: "The risk of the disease spreading is high at national level… because it is present in several towns and this is just the start of the outbreak.”

The plague has fatality rates of 30 to 100 per cent if untreated and the pneumonic strand is transmitted person to person by air, making it more difficult to control.
The WHO describes pneumonic plague as “the deadliest and most rapid form of plague”.
Nearly 1.2million doses of antibiotics and £11.4million ($15million) worth of emergency funding have been sent by WHO to fight the plague.
Dr Charlotte Ndiaye, a WHO Representative in Madagascar, said: "Plague is curable if detected in time.
“Our teams are working to ensure that everyone at risk has access to protection and treatment. The faster we move, the more lives we save.”

Alarmed by how many cigarette butts littered the parks of Amsterdam, two Dutch designers came up with an unusual plan to train crows to pick up the butts and trade them for tasty rewards.

Industrial designers Ruben van der Vleuten and Bob Spikman originally considered using robots to clean the streets of cigarette butts, but they presented a series of difficulties, particularly the complicated programming required to have them vacuuming the buts out of every nook and cranny while trying to avoid bicycles and passers-by. So they turned their attention to one of the most abundant resources of urban areas – birds. Pigeons were the first ones they considered, because they can be found in virtually every city in the world, but a quick search revealed that they aren’t really known for their intelligence, so training them would have been very hard. But the two designers soon found a bird that was both very common around human settlements and much, much smarter – the crow.

Crows are ranked among the most intelligent species on the planet, and their understanding of causality allows them to plan, create and use tools to achieve their goals. They can learn things by observing their surroundings, manipulate humans into helping them, and some can apparently even count. Crows’ encephalization quotient (approximate intelligence level) is equal to that of chimpanzees, so they were perfect for the project envisioned by Ruben and Bob.

The two designers knew that they wanted to train crows to clean cities of discarded cigarette butts, but it wasn’t until they discovered the Crow Box, a project by Joshua Klein, that they realized how to go about doing it. Klein had invented a machine to autonomously train crows to pick up change from the streets and exchange it for peanuts, so if they could be trained to do that, they could definitely pick up cigarette butts as well.

Ukrainian parliament announced the registration of bill No. 7187, according to which the rights of Ukrainian civil servants to enter the "aggressor state" are subject to a temporary restriction.
For violation of the new rules, officials are to be fined for between 100 and 200 non-taxable minimum incomes, with deprivation of the right to hold public office for a period of one year. The law directly applies to the President of Ukraine, the head of the presidential administration, Cabinet members, NSDC secretary and other Ukrainian officials.
Under the new law, if one member of the Cabinet visits the "aggressor state", the entire Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine will be dissolved.
Exceptions do not extend generously to the employees of the diplomatic service and force majeure circumstances that require an urgent visit to the treatment or funeral of the relatives.
It's no secret that the draft of the new law, according to which Ukrainian officials and ordinary citizens will soon ban from visiting Russia, is developed inside the SBU (ukrainian secret service) on the initiative of its leader, Grytsak. Poroshenko clearly knows about and the bill received his full approval, since it was nominated by the deputies of the pro-presidential bloc for registration in the Verkhovna Rada. Ukrainian secret service as itself is not at affairs, as has no authority to submit bills to parliament.

translator note: over 70% of ukrainian population have direct or distant relatives in Russian Federation. over 40% of working population is working abroad in Russian Federation as quest or migrant gastarbeiters.

And to be honest, Un should have known that Trump was not someone who treat lightly. Especially when it comes to stuff involving military.

While admittedly, Trump is an idiot for saying a lot of the things he's tweeted, Un's not making things better by responding to blow up the world.

Doesn't matter how much he isn't suicidal or whatnot. The fact that he's responding to these tweets when he easilly could ignore them is only making things worse for him, and them telling Russia that they aren't negotiating not only worsens their relationship with their neighbor (and their relationship with China is similarly down the shitter). But proves that they want a war to happen, regardless if millions, if not billions die from it.

If anything, the neighbors north to the Norks need to realize that neither Un or his people will negotiate for anything at this point and either just fight them themselves or realize the US is right and cut off all ties from him.

>>
I reckon Kim is being pushed into a corner. His people were starving before so he used his old tactic of 'gimme money or I'll kill you' but that didn't work. Trump and the UN gave him sanctions instead which pushed him further into debt.
At this point I think he's really struggling. It's either have his people starve to death or use them one last time and have a slight chance to gain something.
>>
>>186555
And that's only assuming they aren't getting fed up with him either, what with the rumors of internal uproar happening.

With the whole world against him, I can see why he's making these threats and even the testing. The fact that it's against a man who's already hated by millions of people out there for no good reason 90% of the time makes it all the more humiliating in the grand scheme of things.

He's acting just like the SJWs who won't shut up about them, only he's using missiles, nukes and the world at large instead of simply wanting his head on a platter.

A woman called the Niceville Police Department to report a bumper sticker that she thought threatened national security.

The sticker said something like, “Way to make my day” and had a picture of Clint Eastwood on it.

The officer told her it sounded like a parody, but she said she was sure it was a threat against President Donald Trump.

The officer said that if she felt that strongly about it, she would need to call the Department of Homeland Security, since it would be a federal issue.

A Republican lawmaker on Tuesday described the “massive” data transfers on government servers by a former IT aide to Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz as “a substantial security threat.”

“These facts, standing alone, indicate a substantial security threat,” Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Scott Perry said of the Imran Awan case during an informal hearing of Republican House members on Capitol Hill on Tuesday.

Awan pleaded not guilty in September to multiple federal charges including bank fraud and conspiracy. A grand jury had returned an indictment in August in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia charging Imran Awan and his wife, Hina Alvi, with a total of four charges.

Perry, a member of the Homeland Security subcommittee on cyber security, said Tuesday that the House Office of Inspector General tracked the network usage of Awan and his associates on House servers and found that a “massive” amount of data was flowing from the networks.

Awan and other IT aides for House Democrats had been on investigators’ radar for months over concerns of possible double-billing, alleged equipment theft and access to sensitive computer systems. Most lawmakers fired Awan in February, but Wasserman Schultz had kept him on until his arrest in July.

According to Perry, more than 5,700 logins by the five Awan associates were discovered on a single server within the House and 5,400 of those logins appeared unauthorized. That server, Perry said, belonged to then-Democratic Rep. Xavier Becerra, who is now attorney general in California.

Perry said a criminal investigation by Capitol Police begun after the House Office of Inspector General reported its findings into Awan and his associates last year. (cont in link)

Stoking Islamophobia and secession in Texas -- from an office in Russia

http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/05/politics/heart-of-texas-russia-event/index.html

On May 21 2016, a handful of people turned out to protest the opening of a library at an Islamic Center in Houston, Texas. Two held up a banner proclaiming #WhiteLivesMatter. A counter-protest began across the street; video shows a noisy but non-violent confrontation.

The rally -- called "Stop Islamization of Texas" -- was called and promoted by a Facebook page called Heart of Texas, which had wrongly alleged that the Islamic library had received public funding. But the Heart of Texas page listed no contacts in the Lone Star state. In fact, it was operated by a "Troll Factory" called the Internet Research Agency thousands of miles away in St Petersburg Russia, CNN has learned.

One of the people who attended the rally later complained: "Heart of Texas promoted this event but we didn't see ONE of them."

The Houston rally sheds light on an effort originating in Russia to sow discord in the U.S. through social media; in this case it had real impact on the ground.

Not only were police on the scene, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Texas, Mustafaa Carroll, told CNN that his organization had contacted the FBI about comments posted on the Heart of Texas page before the protest. One of them read: "Need to blow this place up. We don't need this shit in Texas."

The protest was also discussed by Houston City Council three days after it took place.

How can we be sure this operation was financed by Russia and not the US or China or another nation, financial organization, or political group? If the link does exist (note the article focuses on the ramifications more than the evidence) why are we quick to blame the state of origin? Certain "Russian hackers" in the election were American hackers using Russian proxies. The Soviet Union had a developed PsyOps operation in place before the collapse, those involved are going private. Their loyalties might still lie with the remnants of the old government, but this might be a purely profitable venture.

Most proof is going to be necessary in these types of articles. I'm starting to get tired of the speculative blaming of Russia whenever something goes awry. The constant blaming of Russia seems a more likely PsyOp tactic than anything these articles imply. Call me a shill, but I always question the proposed narrative of published articles.

You conflate the IRA's interest with the Russian government's, stating that "this fits with their use of anti-Islamic propaganda to increase their influence". Can you prove the connections between the company and the Russian government? How does anti-Islamic rhetoric help Russia?

The "article" focuses on what Heart of Texas said and believes, which is supposed to be shocking, rather than providing evidence. Obviously, the article is written to be sensational, I don't trust sources like that. It's almost like it was written to meet a word count, kek.

Norway's male and female players will receive the same amount of pay for representing the country, the Norwegian football association has announced.

The amount of money paid to the women's team will almost double from 3.1m krone (£296,845) to 6m krone (£574,540).
This includes 550,000 krone (£47,875) paid by male Norwegian players, money they receive for commercial activities.
"Thank you for making this step for female athletes," said Norway winger Caroline Graham Hansen.
In a message posted on Instagram, Graham Hansen also posted a picture of the men's football team and said: "This was maybe a small thing for you to do for us, this will maybe not show in your monthly wages, this was maybe an obvious move for you to do.

"But this means everything for us, for our team, our sport, and for all the female athletes out there, who do the same work, the same sport as men do, but get paid less.
"For you to say that equal pay is how it should be, makes me want to cry. It makes me want to hug you all.
"Thank you for making this step for female athletes. For showing equality and for helping us all, making it a bit easier, to chase our dreams. To make them come true! RESPECT #equalgame #equalpay."
Players' union boss Joachim Walltin believes this is the first deal of its kind in world football.
"Norway is a country where equal standing is very important for us, so it is good for the country and for the sport," he said.
"For the girls, it will certainly make a difference. Some of them are working and studying, as well as playing football, and it's hard to improve then.
"The feeling of being really respected is very important for them. The federation can see it as an investment to increase the level of the women's team."
In September, Denmark cancelled a home women's friendly against Netherlands because of a dispute over money with the Danish Football Association (DBU).

I don't agree with the previous anon, but if your only reason to try to excel at anything is how much money you will get, you need to go speak to a shrink and get your life together.

So the women are less talented and way less popular yet they get paid the same as the men?

A white restaurant manager in South Carolina has been charged with enslaving a black buffet cook for five years, according to a federal indictment unsealed this week.

The cook, Christopher Smith, 39, alleges that he was forced to work up to seven days a week, often for 18 hours a day without breaks, brutally beaten and threatened repeatedly, according to a separate civil suit filed in the matter.

Bobby Paul Edwards, 52, is accused in the indictment of using “force, threats of force, physical restraint and coercion” to enslave Smith at J&J Cafeteria in Conway, S.C. Conway is just inland from Myrtle Beach.

Edwards surrendered to the FBI on Wednesday, waived a bond hearing for now and was jailed. He faces up to 20 years in prison if found guilty of the federal felony of “forced labor.”

“We deny any allegations of slavery and abuse,” Edwards’ attorney, Scott Bellamy, told the AJC Thursday. “We don’t believe there was any slavery involved. That word — in the climate we’re in in this country, quite frankly — makes it even more of a story.”

He noted that neither the indictment nor the federal charge contains the word “slavery.”

The indictment, which identifies Smith only by his initials, JCB, says Edwards is charged under the U.S. Code section on “slavery, peonage and trafficking in persons.”

It says Edwards used force, threats and intimidation to “cause JCS to believe that, if he did not perform such labor and services, he would suffer serious harm and physical restraint.”

Was the black guy a retard or homeless or something? Only way this story makes any sense. How did he come to exist in this situation with no family or anyone to ever check up on him?

If you bothered to read and were over 18 you'd know the answers. He worked there from a young age, and was forced to live in a shit apartment near there. A line cook like this guy makes minimum wage (and you can bet he was never given a raise, or payed properly because that would create a paper trail of the abuse). A full day in a kitchen starts before any other businesses are open, and ends after every other business has closed, and is physically and mentally exhausting at the best of times, let alone working open, mid, and close every day every week. One of the reason you're not supposed to work 18 hours a day is so you can actually do things like get to know people and form social groups, maintain family ties, buy and wash clothes so you're actually presentable in public, and generally be a human being.

If you ever hear about the working poor, this is it. You work a lot for little money, you don't have the time, money, or energy to get the training and go through the process of getting a better job, and if your employer simply doesn't offer you any way to advance (let alone actually assault you and break every worker's rights law in the book) then your stuck on the treadmill. That's how you get people who are working 50+ hours a week for years and still draw on welfare and other financial aid, because something as simple as 'getting a house that isn't infested with vermin' requires a commitment of time and money they can't offer up front.
