  • Ethiopian demonstrators arrested after protesting 'racist Israeli authorities'

    A number of Ethiopian activists were placed under arrest Sunday evening after police said that they had "disrupted the public order" during a protest held in Tel Aviv.

    Israel Police said in a statement that the demonstrators were detained after they began blocking the entrance to the South Ayalon Highway, preventing the flow of traffic to vehicles.

    "During the event several protestors chose to ignore the orders giving by officers and began to disrupt the public order and block roads," the police statement reads.

    Demonstrators had taken to the streets to protest what they said was ill-treatment and "oppression" from the "authorities" who they claim have targeted the Ethiopian community for "years."

    "We are fed up, we are the new generation!," protestors chanted throughout a number of busy Tel Aviv streets.

    Protestors also highlighted their frustrations with a number of Israeli institutions, including the police, The Health Ministry, poor education and religious discrimination among other grievances.

    Amber Bogale, organizer of the protest, told the Yediot Ahranot newspaper: "For years, (Israel) has been depriving us of our equal rights. We serve in the army - and yet police brutality and discrimination infect all spheres of our lives."

    "Police violence must stop," she continued. "There are constantly more victims of police violence from our community.

    In response, Israel Police said: "During the protest several demonstrators violated the public order and illegally blocked roads to vehicles. As a result, policemen were obligated to clear the way and began making arrests. Police policy is to enable freedom of expression and protest, yet we must enforce the law without compromise against whoever has chosen to break law and order. "

    Yediot Ahranot reported that at least 12 people participating in the protest were placed under arrest.

  • He Fight for India but his Country Paid him Nothing than Being Garbage Man

    That we treat cricketers like gods is probably India's most ill-kept secret. While cricketers sign deals worth hundreds of crores to endorse hair oils, shoes and just about everything they can get their hands on, they buy motorsports teams, launch their own clothing labels, date actresses, buy bikes worth your 3-years salary - in a nutshell - they are living it up like rockstars. And they should too - cricket is a huge sport in India. The problem is not that cricketers make a lot of money, but the fact that several other sportsmen don't make any.

    A prime example of this is national-level gold medal-winning boxer Kamal Kumar who is now forced to collect garbage from door to door to make a living. Kamal said that he wanted to become the pride of the nation, but the government remained ignorant and so he didn't get any financial support.

    "I am sad because even after playing at national level I was not able to get a fourth class job. I am doing this job of collecting garbage for a living, as I have a family who is dependent on me," Kamal is quoted as saying by ANI.

  • Shocking! Zoo Keeper Accused of Impregnating a Female Orangutan Ape


    A zoo keeper at Indonesia’s Surabaya zoo has landed in trouble after he was arrested and charged with impregnating a female orangutan, reports the Kalimantan Press.

    The 38-year-old zoo keeper was filmed in full action by a series of hidden cameras put in place by the zoo’s security officials after doubts emerged about the man’s devious actions towards the zoo animals. He was caught on camera having sexual intercourse with the animals.


    “Some animals seemed sexually aroused when it was time to feed them”,  explains Akhiroel Yahya, employee of the zoo for 14 years. “But what made us most suspicious was when we discovered Marylin, our oldest orangutan, was pregnant. She has never been in contact with any other orangutans because of her aggressive nature, so it didn’t make any sense” he acknowledges, visibly troubled by the news.


    Then out of curiosity and desire to know, the zoo officials decided on what to do.
    “At first, we clearly did not comprehend what had happened,” admits the zoo’s director, Abdoel Hakim. “Marilyn has been secluded for the past 10 years, it was a total mystery,” he acknowledges. “It is only when we placed several hidden cameras that we learned the horrible truth” he admits, visibly angered by the whole situation.
    However, the zoo keeper had denied everything. He denied any wrong doing on his part.
    “He said everything he had done was consensual,” explains police chief Abubakar Jaar. “He said he loved each and everyone of the animals and was very sorry he had impregnated the orangutan,” he told local reporters. “He says he did not know orangutans could get pregnant from humans,” he added.
    “Contrary to popular belief, the orangutan species is much closer to the human species than chimpanzees. We share practically the same DNA code, with only minute differences, which could explain the orangutan falling pregnant from this man” explains Paleobiologist Bachtiar Pado Panghulu, of the University of Jakarta.
    “Particularly in Indonesia, the genetic profile of some of the population is extremely close to the orangutan species, leading us to believe they’re might have been a common ancestor to both species only a few hundred thousand years ago,” he admits.
