VH1 looked more like the Playboy Channel when they accidentally aired an uncensored crotch shot during an episode of the reality show “Dating Naked,” a star of the show claims in a new lawsuit.
Jessie Nizewitz, 28, says she was repeatedly promised by the producers that her private parts would be “blurred out” during the show’s third episode in May.
So she stripped down to her birthday suit with wet beach sand covering parts of her body and performed a WWE-style wrestling move on her date while the producers egged her on, according to the $10 million suit filed in Manhattan by her high- powered lawyer, Matthew Blit.
“I felt lied to, manipulated and used. I was horrified,” Nizewitz told The Post, explaining that she was brought to tears.
When a South Carolina student was given an assignment by his teacher to create a Facebook-type status report telling something interesting about himself, he allegedly wrote “I killed my neighbor’s pet dinosaur. I bought the gun to take care of the business.”
School officials were alarmed by 16-year-old Alex Stone’s words and called police. Now Stone and his mother Karen Gray are speaking out to media as they feel the school overreacted.
“I could understand if they made him rewrite it because he did have ‘gun’ in it,” Gray told the NY Daily News. “I mean first of all we don’t have dinosaurs anymore. Second of all, he’s not even old enough to buy a gun.”
The cops took Stone in for questioning and searched his locker and backpack for guns. None were found.
A 70-year-old Australian grandfather has become the oldest person to swim the English Channel, celebrating his feat by having a couple of beers “for medicinal purposes”.
Cyril Baldock, from Bondi in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, said the beers tasted better than the sea water he swallowed during the record-breaking swim from England to France, which made him “pretty crook”, or unwell.
Baldock, aged 70 years and nine months, took 12 hours and 45 minutes to swim from Dover to Cap Gris-Nez – a straight line distance of 34 kilometres – beating the previous record set by British man Roger Allsopp, who was five months younger, in 2011.
The president of Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim-majority country, deemed the actions of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria group “embarrassing” to the religion and called upon Muslim leaders to unite in tackling extremism, Agence France-Presse reported.
BEIRUT: Hezbollah Thursday condemned the beheading of American photojournalist James Foley, describing the killing as a “savage crime” executed by terrorist groups.
Hezbollah cited “financial and military support of terrorist groups,” paired with “political and media protection” and international silence over crimes committed by ISIS in Iraq and Syria, as the main causes behind the “terrible crime.”
UPDATED: A wide range of Muslims living in Norway are gathering for the first time to mount a major demonstration next week against Islamic extremists both in Norway and abroad. “We’re tired of seeing (extremist groups such as) IS and Profetens Ummah dominate the debate,” said one of the organizers of the demonstration, 28-year-old student Thee Yezen Obaide. An Iraqi group, meanwhile, is also challenging the spokesman for Profetens Ummah in court.
Militants who executed American journalist James Foley in a video released Tuesday implied they would do the same to another war correspondent, Steven Sotloff, if President Obama does not stop U.S. airstrikes in Iraq. That doesn’t appear to have dissuaded the president or senior defense officials: The U.S. military announced 14 more airstrikes in northern Iraq on Wednesday, saying it had hit a variety of militant targets.
The Saudi kingdom’s top cleric has condemned ISIS extremists for violating the rules of Islam, but private donors from oil-rich Saudi Arabia are likely to continue sponsoring the radical Sunni movement in Syria and Iraq, experts stress.
“The ideas of extremism, radicalism and terrorism … have nothing to do with Islam and (their proponents) are the enemy number one of Islam,” claimed Saudi Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh on Tuesday, August, 19, as cited by Al Arabiya.
When it comes to moving furniture on a budget you might wish your car was a TARDIS — but wishing will not make it so.
One Sheffield family has valiantly attempted to fit a three-seater sofa in the back of their Ford Fiesta and a neighbour was there to (unhelpfully) capture their struggle. You’ve got to admire the family’s persistence and preparedness to experiment with the laws of physics while still keeping an eye on children playing by the side of the road.
Much like our local police, Stormtroopers must keep up with the most modern of military equipment–to protect themselves from, say, dark, unarmed figures they think look threatening in a hood. So, for Star Wars: Episode VII, director J.J. Abrams has given the Empire soldiers some updated helmets with a very modern, streamlined makeover. Or at least that’s what it seems from these leaked images over at Indie Revolver, where they claim that this is the new look for the iconic, bumbling villains.
Victims of the Commonwealth Bank’s financial planning scandal have slammed as ‘‘obscene’’ and ‘‘devastating’’ the multimillion-dollar pay packets pocketed by executives in charge of the troubled division.
Grahame Petersen and Annabel Spring received million-dollar pay rises and big cash bonuses despite a Senate inquiry that called for a royal commission after allegations of fraud, forgery and a management cover-up in the unit.
Mr Petersen, who ran the division between 2006 and 2011 when it employed rogue planners such as Don Nguyen, got more than $5.6 million – a pay rise of more than $1.1 million.
Although 4chan is predominantly known (erroneously, these days) as the home of child pornography, gore, and memes, it’s mostly home to frustrated people who, every now and then, create something amazing. Whether it’s the post-your-soundclouds threads on the music board /mu/ or the artwork/critique on /ic/, there are some pretty clever folks who frequent that particular shithole. Some particularly ingenious user has spawned commentary on the definition of art by taking a screenshot of a post and auctioning it. And sold it for $90,900.
Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform, wobbly for more than a week, is again experiencing outages and interruptions that are impacting multiple products in the U.S. and abroad.
Monday’s problems started at close to 2 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time and at their peak affected about 10 services, including Cloud Services, Virtual Machines and Websites, according to information posted by Microsoft on its Azure status website.
At about 4:15 p.m. ET Microsoft had started to remedy some of the outages and interruptions, but still had a ways to go to get the situation under control and bring the platform to a normal status.
For example, at that time Cloud Services, where customers build, deploy and manage apps on the Azure cloud, was still experiencing performance and availability problems in four out of the six U.S. regions of the platform, in Japan and in Brazil. Simultaneously, Virtual Machines, which lets customers deploy Windows Server, Linux, or third-party software images to Azure, was struggling even more broadly in geographic terms, up only in two of the Azure global regions.
The plaintiff, Steven James Whiting, commenced proceedings in this court on 22 July 2014 by filing a claim and statement of claim. In the claim he described himself as “His Royal Highness, King of the Whiting Kingdom, Baron of the Whiting Region, King Steven 1 ATF Steven James Whiting”.
In the claim he described his claim as “Compensation for damages caused by the actions of the defendants. Specifically restoration of my children to my care immediately.
He elected trial by jury. He described himself as I have set out and then said that he was “A self-represented Applicant exhausting his last peaceful avenues, before declaration of war.“
A teenage supporter of the terrorist group Islamic State, who gained notoriety after an appearance on television last week, has been arrested over an alleged religious attack on a cleaner at a western Sydney shopping centre.
In an incident that will raise fears of growing violence in Australia, the 19-year-old, who goes by the Islamic alias Abu Bakr, allegedly verbally abused, threatened and intimidated a 43-year-old cleaner at the Bankstown Central shopping centre on August 10.
He was kicked out of the centre by security but allegedly returned 1½ hours later and again abused the man, who was still cleaning.
A porn star who was put in the hospital after she says she was beaten by her MMA fighter ex-boyfriend has released a statement detailing her experience.
Las Vegas police say Christy Mack was left with severe, but not life-threatening, injuries early Friday morning when she was confronted and beaten by MMA fighter Jonathan Koppenhaver, who brawls under the name War Machine.
In a statement sent to The Huffington Post, Mack tells her story of what happened and details her injuries that resulted:
At about 2 am Friday morning, Jon Koppenhaver arrived unannounced to my home in Las Vegas, NV, after he broke up with me in May, he moved out of my house and back to San Diego. When he arrived, he found myself and one other fully clothed and unarmed in the house. Without a single word spoken, he began beating my friend; once he was finished, he sent my friend away and turned his attention to me. He made me undress and shower in front of him, then dragged me out and beat my face.
He framed the decision to give it up as a “leadership call”, making him sound strong and principled even though that was pretty much the opposite of what it was. (Try using that phrase in your real life! “I made a leadership call to trip over that bit of floor.” “I made a leadership call to have my identity stolen and my bank accounts cleared.”)
So why all the fuss? Or, more accurately, why all the media articles about people-being-fussed-even-though-we-can’t-really-find-anyone-who-doesn’t-have-a-nationally-syndicated-column-and-television-show-and-whose-name-rhymes-with-Shmandrew-Jolt-who-cares-about-it?
18C of the Racial Discrimination Act says that it is unlawful for a person to perform an act in public that is reasonably likely to offend, insult, humiliate or intimidate a person or a group of people on the basis of their race, colour, nationality or ethnicity.
This is, of course, a massive blow to free speech, much in the same way that not being allowed to accuse your business competitors of being child pornographers, or shout “fire” in a crowded theatre also impinges on our ability to say whatever we want whenever we want.
