German lawmakers legalized same-sex marriage

Germany's parliament backed the legalization of same-sex marriage on Friday in a historic vote hailed by gay activists and leftist parties but criticized by some in Chancellor.

Angela Merkel's ruling conservative bloc and by the Catholic Church. The move brings Germany into line with many other European nations including France, Britain and Spain and follows Merkel's surprise decision this week to allow her lawmakers to follow their own conscience rather than the party line on the issue.

Merkel, daughter of a Protestant pastor, voted against the bill. Hundreds of gay activists, some with painted faces, celebrated outside the Bundestag lower house of parliament after the vote, waving rainbow flags and placards that read "Marriage for all - make love for all".

"This is simply a historic day for Germany," said Soeren Landmann, a marriage equality activist. "Today, thousands of same-sex couples were given equality, and the two-class society in matters of love was abolished.

Germany can really rejoice today." The vote has particular resonance in Germany as it unwinds a legacy of virulent homophobia. .

Earlier this year parliament agreed to grant compensation to thousands of gay men jailed under a 19th century law that was strengthened by the Nazis and only dropped in 1969 when homosexuality was decriminalized in West Germany.

Merkel, who is seeking a fourth term in a national election on Sept. 24, said she had voted against the bill because she believed that marriage as defined under German law was between a man and a woman. But she said her decision was a personal one, adding that she had become convinced in recent years that same-sex couples should be allowed to adopt children.

"I hope that the vote today not only promotes respect between the different opinions but also brings more social cohesion and peace," she said.

Germany is the 23rd country to legalize same-sex marriage, according to reports, the world's largest gay rights group.

A survey by pollster INSA for daily Bild showed this week that three quarters of Germans favored its legalization.

Lawmakers voted by 393 in favor of same-sex marriage to 226 against, with four abstentions. The landmark vote came about almost by chance after Merkel announced on Monday she would allow lawmakers to vote on same-sex marriage according to their individual conscience, drawing the ire of some in her traditionally Catholic conservative bloc.

"Am Proud To Say My First Boyfriend Is Indeed My Last” – US Based Nigerian Lady

A Nigerian couple based in Washington D.C in the US,  have got themselves trending online after sharing their pre-wedding photos ahead of their wedding in a few months time.

The soon- to-be bride Ashley, who revealed that she’s anticipating their big day, shared photos of her and her man whom she said has been her best friend for almost 8 years now.

Below is a tribute she once wrote to her man on Instagram: Growing up at the age of 15-16, I remember asking God that when I get older & start dating, my first boyfriend should not only be my first and last boyfriend but also he should be a man after Gods heart so he knows how to love & respect me dearly! Not knowing God really did listen to my prayers .

7 years ago Kunle and I met in church & although we were too young to make marital decisions, we just knew we were meant for each other!!! A lot of people teased me for not having experience dating around but today I am proud to say my first boyfriend really indeed is my last boyfriend.

I’m glad I can advise younger girls that dating is not something you should rush into. If you wait on the Lord & let Him pick your partner for you, He will provide nothing but THE best...

My Wife Is Pregnant, I Don’t Know If Its With My Baby.

Hi, please I need honest and mature contribution on this matter. I love my wife so much, and I don’t want to have a failed marriage, not so early.

My marriage is only 18months old. This is my wife’s first Pregnancy, but I am having serious concerns about the paternity of the baby.

I trust(ed) my wife with all my heart and soul. She was away on a Job training for 6 months. The training finished on May 19th and we made love same day.

She told me she last saw her period in May 16th so we both assumed she was in her safe period by May 19th before we made love. Actually we didn’t want pregnancy or a baby yet because we are strained by resources for now.

My wife started complaining of strong tummy pain, plus her period hadn’t shown up by June 12, so we went for a Pregnancy test and she was confirmed Pregnant.

In fact the Lab attendant told me she is very pregnant. Days after I went through her chat while she was asleep and came across her chat with some guy, the chat was very suspicious. Actually the said guy is a Gynecologist, so she had told him she was Pregnant immediately after the test so as to get medical advice. In this chat the guy called my wife “luv”, “dearie”, talked about she visiting him, and my wife’s response was to play along. At some point she even said she can’t wait to visit the guy. The height of it was when the guy asked “how is our baby doing?”

I could not control my emotions after reading their chat, so I confronted my wife. She claim the guy was her best friend, that they met at her training. Actually she has always freely spoken to the guy via phone in my presence before this event so I had no suspicions until I read their chat. We quarrelled and she cried and cried swearing that she has never been with any man but me. She said she was heart broken I am doubting the paternity of her Pregnancy.

On June 26th, we were at the hospital for ultrasound scan and medical check up. The Ultra sound scan report says the pregnancy was 7weeks and 6days on June 26th. Now remember we first met on May 19th after about 6 months, also remember May 19th was three days after her period ended, she was supposed to be in her safe period. Now Let’s assume she conceived on May 19th, between May 19th and June 26th is not upto 7weeks and 6days.

Again I confronted her with these facts and she’s been very emotional, she threatened that we must do paternity test after the baby is born to prove me wrong, she also warned that she will make my life hell after that test for doubting her faithfulness to me.

Please I don’t know what to do next, my doubt is not fading because the numbers and events don’t add up, I need useful suggestions please.’

Kindly note that I trust and love my wife, a part of me believes the baby is mine, its the maths that don’t add up, and her chat with her Gynecologist best friend that keeps fueling my doubt.

What is the best way to handle my situation?

16 Signs You May Have HIV Without Knowing (A Must Read)

About 4-8 weeks after HIV has entered the body, 40-90% of the people experienced symptoms that resemble flu symptoms, and this is known as acute retroviral syndrome (ARS).

But, in some cases the HIV symptoms don’t appear for years, even decades after the body has been infected.

These are some of the signs that may indicate you are HIV-positive.16 Signs You May Have HIV

  • Fever

One of the first signs of ARS might be a mild fever, up to about 102 degrees F.

In case you experience the fever, you may also often experience other generally mellow side-effects, such as sore throat, swelling of the lymph organs, weakness etc.

  • Fatigue

One of the inflammatory responses of your overwhelmed immune system is the feeling of tiredness and lethargy. Fatigue can be an early sign of HIV, but a later one as well.

Throbbing muscles, joint torment, swollen lymph hubs

Lymph hubs are part of the body’s insusceptible framework and are usually kindled in case of a disease. The most part of them is placed in the armpit, the neck and the crotch.

ARS is often confused for the seasonal cold virus, mononucleosis or another viral infectivity, even hepatitis or syphilis.

  • Sore throat and headache

According to Dr. Horberg, sore throat and headache are frequently recognized as ARS only in context.

One should be aware that the body still hasn’t produced antibodies to HIV, so an antibody test may not pick it up (the antibodies of HIV can be seen in a blood test from a few weeks to few months). One should find some other test options, like the one that detects viral RNA, usually within 9 days of the infections.

  • Skin rash

Skin rashes can be both early and late HIV/AIDS signs.

  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea

Around 30% to 60% of the people in the early stages of HIV deal with short-term nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, Dr. Malvestutto says.

  • Weight reduction

Called “guides squandering”, weight reduction is a sign of more propelled illness and can vary between a minor weight reduction to extreme looseness of the bowels.

  • Dry cough

Ron first noticed that something was wrong with him because of the dry cough. But, he thought it was some kind of allergy. According to Dr.Malvestutto, this cough is typical for patients of HIV who are very ill and could be going on for weeks, with you not seeing the way in which it would be resolved.

  • Pneumoniaq-640x634

Weight reduction and the hack might be a forecast of a genuine disease caused by a germ that wouldn’t cause any troubles if the invulnerable framework was working properly. Other opening diseases include toxoplasmosis, a parasitic contamination that affects the mind; a kind of herpes infection known as cytomegalovirus and yeast contaminations, like thrush for example.

  • Night sweats
Around 50% of people get night sweats in the early stages of HIV infection, Dr. Malvestutto explains. In the later stages, they become even more common and aren’t related to exercise or the room temperature.

  • Nail changes

Another sign of HIV contamination are nail changes, such as clubbing (bending and thickening of the nails), staining (dark lines or chestnut lines, placed vertically or on a level plane).

This is mostly the case because of some infectious disease, like Candida for example. According to Dr.Malvestutto, patients with worn out insusceptible frameworks are feebler to contagious contaminations.

  • Yeast infections

A fungal infection common in the later stages is thrush, mouth infection that is a result of Candida, which is a kind of yeast.

According to Dr.Malvestutto, it is one of the commonest funguses that cause yeast infection in women. Most frequently, they appear in the mouth, or the esophagus, and cause difficulties when swallowing.

  • Perplexity or trouble concentrating

Another sign of HIV-related dementia can be subjective issues, which appear mostly in the later stages of the disease. Perplexity and trouble concentrating aside, the AIDS-related dementia may also include problems with the memory and the behavior, like bitterness or irritability.

  • Cold sores or genital herpes

Oral herpes (cold sores) and genital herpes are an indication of both ARS and HIV in the late stages. Having herpes can also represent a risk factor for contracting HIV, since genital herpes may cause ulcer and thus make it easier for the HIV to enter the body during sex. Also, people who have HIV usually have more severe herpes outbreaks more frequently because their immune system is weaker.

  • Shivering and shortcoming

Deadness and shivering in the feet and hands are also a sigh of HIV, in its later stages. The symptom is called fringe neuropathy, and it can also happen to people with uncontrolled diabetes.

Dr.Malvestutto explains that at this point the nerves are quite harmed. This can be treated with the help of over-the-counter distress relievers and anti-seizure medications, like Neurontin (gabapentin) is.

  • Menstrual irregularities

HIV disease in its late stages increases the risk of menstrual irregularities, like fewer and lighter periods.

There’s a link between the HIV infection and the earlier menopause (47 to 48 years for infected women and 49 to 51 years for uninfected women).

Venus Williams Blamed In Fatal Car Crash That killed A 78 Year Old Man

Tennis star, Venus Williams was accused for causing a car accident that sent a 78-year-old man to an ICU unit where he died 14 days later ... according to a police report obtained by TMZ Sports.
The driver of the other car -- the wife of the victim -- told cops she was approaching an intersection westbound in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on June 9 when Venus' northbound SUV suddenly darted into the intersection. The other driver says there was no time to stop and she T-boned Venus' vehicle.
Venus told cops she was trying to make it through the intersection but there was a traffic backup and she had to slow down to a crawl, with her car exposed in the intersection.
The driver's husband, Jerome Barson, suffered head trauma and was taken to a hospital and placed in ICU. He never recovered and died 2 weeks later. Barson's wife was also taken to the hospital with broken bones and other injuries, but survived ... according to her attorney Michael Steinger.
Cops say Venus caused the accident. According to the police report, "[Venus] is at fault for violating the right of way of [the other driver]."
Police say in the report there was no evidence Venus was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. They also say there's no evidence she was distracted by an electronic device.
We reached out to Williams for comment -- so far, no word back

Court Sentences Baby To Death

Baby Charlie Gard sentenced to death by Human Rights Court
European Human Rights Court has given it's verdict on a case of human rights that will compel a couple to allow their sick baby to die.

The parents of the baby Chris Gard and Connie Yates have been in a long legal battle to save their baby who is suffering from a serious genetic illness.The baby is currently on life support while treatment options were being considered.
At 8 weeks old, Charlie was diagnosed with mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome and is considered to be only one of 16 babies worldwide with this disease.
His condition is progressive and currently incurable and eventually fatal.
Meanwhile, doctors are developing treatments for the various mitochondrial conditions, including the nucleoside treatment Charlie’s parents have been fighting for.
According to vanguard, Charlie’s parents prayed the court to determine if they, as parents, have the right to continue to provide medical treatments for their son or if he should be allowed to die
The parents of the 10-months old baby wants the court to let them use a potentially life-saving drug from the U.S. on their son.
They believed that the drug (which is still experimental), would help their son’s genetic condition rather than allow him to die as doctors have recommended.
However a June 27 ruling of the court held that the application by the parents was ‘inadmissible’.
The court said that the baby was being exposed to continued pain, suffering and distress in pursuit of treatments that were unsure.It added that any additional treatment would continue to cause harm to the baby stressing that its ruling is “Final”.
“The EHRC also removed the interim measure to keep Charlie’s life support in place.
A spokesman for Great Ormond Street Hospital, where Charlie has been treated since October, has told the parents that there is “no rush” to remove Charlie’s life support.The spokesman said that any future treatment will involve careful planning and discussion.”
The hospital has said that though there is a deadline in place for Charlie, they wouldn’t have to follow it exactly. The discussion and planning will take some days to work out.
Meanwhile, Charlie’s parents have so far raised over £1.3 million through a GoFundMe account for his treatment.With the ruling of the court, the parents are unsure what they want to do with the money.
They plan to donate some to the U.S. hospital willing to treat Charlie, while the rest will be put into a charity for other children with similar mitochondrial conditions “so that nobody else ever has to go through what we have.”
She said, “We’d like to save other babies and children because these medications have been proven to work and we honestly have so much belief in them.”
