Sunday News

What I’m going to do here is point you towards three news stories that have caught my eye today. I’m going to try and do this once a week and bring you three stories from three different areas of news.

The first story this week is a UK story that is tragic yet humorous (yes, I have a sick sense of humour). BBC Wales are reporting that a man has died in a cake eating competition that was held in Swansea over the weekend. It almost enough to put you off of fairy cakes – however, it will be interesting to find out what he actually died of. Nobody has reported that, just that it wasn’t suspicious. Did he choke etc.? I want to know!

The second story speaks for itself in the clip below – legendary outburst – no chance in getting a passport now!

The last story is an international and technical one – that Pakistani authorities have ordered all local ISPs to block access to Google as blasphemous images of the Prophet Mohammed had made their way onto the file-sharing site. The really funny thing about this story is that, because an over zealous ISP in Pakistan got something wrong, not only was youTube taken off-line for 40 minutes, but the whole of Pakistan was removed from the Internet as well!

Amy Winehouse

Bit of a catch up post this, I’m trying my best to start blogging again, but time is painfully sparse right now.

I’m very at busy at work now that I have got a newish job – apart from managing On-Call, I now look after the operations project management for the divisional director. Chuffed!!

So anyway, I just wanted to briefly mention my thoughts on Amy Winehouse. She performed at the Brits twice last week and I felt so proud for her. She has a talent that should never go to waste and that is why it is disgraceful when she is compared to Britney Spears. Britney does not have a talent, should be locked up in a mental home and have her kids taken away from her…. oh wait, that did happen. On the other hand, Amy needs to be supported by everybody and encouraged to get rid of ‘my Blake incarcerated’ who is nothing but a bad influence on her.
