US girl, 19, who pushed her 16-year-old friend off a 60ft bridge breaks down in tears as she is sentenced to two DAYS in prison after her victim was left with a punctured lung and six broken ribs

A woman who pleaded guilty to pushing her 16-year-old friend from a bridge at a popular swimming area near Vancouver broke down in tears after she was sentenced on Wednesday to two days in jail and 38 days on a county work crew.
Clark County District Court Judge Darvin Zimmerman sentenced 19-year-old Tay'lor Smith on Wednesday, saying she should do some jail time in light of Jordan Holgerson's serious injuries.
Smith pleaded guilty earlier this month to misdemeanor reckless endangerment as part of a plea agreement.
Smith pushed Holgerson off the bridge Aug. 7 at Moulton Falls northeast of Vancouver.

In court Wednesday she said she's still dealing with physical therapy, pain, anxiety and panic attacks.
Holgerson started to cry during her statement to the judge and an advocate then read it for her, saying Holgerson was terrified when she was pushed and when she was in the water thought she was going to die.
'We feel lucky today that she is alive,' Genelle Holgerson told the judge of the incident involving her daughter, adding that she'd like to see some jail time. 
'It has cost me and my family lost wages not to mention stress and heartache.'
Smith apologized to Holgerson in court saying Holgerson has been in her thoughts and that she has and will continue to do her best to right her wrongs.
She broke down in tears when a deputy handcuffed her and led her out of the courtroom.

يوتيوب: قانون الاتحاد الأوروبي يهدد طريقة عمل الموقع

Image result for ‫article 13 ماهى‬‎
 
قالت منصة مشاركة الفيديو يوتيوب المملوكة لشركة جوجل إن قانون حقوق الطبع والنشر الجديد في الاتحاد الأوروبي قد يجبرها
 على منع الأشخاص من تحميل مقاطع الفيديو الخاصة بهم، وأضافت أن القانون الجديد يضع مجتمعها الإبداعي بأكمله في خطر، وأن القواعد الجديدة يمكن أن تغير بشكل جذري من الإنترنت الذي نراه اليوم، وجاءت هذه التصريحات على لسان الرئيسة التنفيذية ليوتيوب سوزان وجسيكي Susan Wojcicki، والتي تعتبر تعليقاتها جزء من حملة الغضب المستمرة على نطاق واسع حول القانون الأوروبي الجديد، الذي أشار إليه نشطاء باسم “حظر الميمات”.
وحثت الرئيسة التنفيذية لشركة يوتوب صناع المحتوى ضمن المنصة على الاحتجاج على قانون حقوق الطبع والنشر الأوروبي، وحذرت سوزان وجسيكي صانعي الفيديو من تهديد قانون حقوق الطبع والنشر المثير للجدل في الاتحاد الأوروبي، وطلبت منهم اتخاذ إجراء فوري والاحتجاج على القانون من خلال مقاطع الفيديو ومشاركات منصات التواصل الإجتماعي.
وقالت سوزان: “هذا التشريع يشكل تهديدًا لوسيلة عيشك وتأمينك لدخلك ولقدرتك على مشاركة صوتك مع العالم”، وركزت المسؤولة التنفيذية على المادة Article 13 من القانون الأوروبي الجديد المتعلق بحقوق المؤلف، والذي صدر في أوائل شهر سبتمبر/أيلول ويعمل على جعل منصات التكنولوجيا مسؤولة عن المحتوى المحمي بحقوق الطبع والنشر.
وتعني هذه المادة أن المنصات العملاقة، والتي تعتمد على المحتوى الذي ينشئه المستخدمون، بما في ذلك يوتيوب وفيسبوك وتويتر، سوف تكون مسؤولة عن التأكد من عدم مشاركة المستخدمين لمواد محمية بموجب حقوق الطبع والنشر، وكما هو الحال الآن، فإن المنصات لا تخضع للمساءلة المالية عن الانتهاكات، على الرغم من أنها تحتاج إلى إزالة المحتوى المحمي بحقوق الطبع والنشر عندما يطلبها أصحاب الحقوق ذلك.
ويقول النقاد إن المادة 13 يمكن أن تهدد قدرة الناس على تبادل المواد مثل الميمات، وهي الصور الهزلية المضحكة، وأنها قد تلحق الضرر بالطريقة التي تعمل بها الشبكات الاجتماعية، فيما يقول المؤيدون إن التشريع ضروري لحماية حقوق المبدعين وتوفير مدخول عادل لهم، وأن منصات التكنولوجيا الرئيسية تمكنت من تجنب تحمل المسؤولية لفترة طويلة جدًا.
وجادلت وجسيكي بأن تحمل المسؤولية عن كل محتوى يوتيوب سوف يجعل من الخطر على المنصة استضافة مقاطع فيديو من منشئي محتوى أصغر، وأن معرف المحتوى ضمن يوتيوب YouTube Content ID يحمي حقوق مالكي المحتوى، حيث يقارن معرف المحتوى Content ID تلقائيًا بين محتوى مقاطع الفيديو الجديدة مع قاعدة بيانات الفيديو والصوت المحمي بحقوق الطبع والنشر.
كما يسمح هذا النظام لمالكي حقوق الطبع والنشر تحديد ما إذا كانوا يريدون حظر مقطع الفيديو الذي يستخدم محتواهم المحمي، ومن المتوقع أن يصوت الاتحاد الأوروبي على النسخة النهائية من القانون العام المقبل، وقالت الشركة إنه قد يتم إجبارها على التوقف عن السماح للمستخدمين العاديين بتحميل مقاطع الفيديو، وأن المشاهدين في الاتحاد الأوروبي قد يتم منعهم من مشاهدة بعض مقاطع الفيديو، وقد يتسبب ذلك في تدمير مبدعين صغار.
وكتبت سوزان أن المادة 13 تهدد بمنع ملايين الأشخاص، بما في ذلك صناع المحتوى والمستخدمين العاديين، من تحميل المحتوى إلى منصات مثل يوتيوب، كما أنها تهدد بمنع المستخدمين في الاتحاد الأوروبي من مشاهدة المحتوى الموجود بالفعل على قنوات المبدعين في كل مكان، وقالت إن القواعد الجديدة “تهدد بإبقاف مئات الآلاف من الوظائف ومصادر الدخل”.
وبحسب الشركة فقد يجبر هذا القانون منصات مثل يوتيوب على السماح بتحميل المحتوى من قبل عدد صغير من الشركات الكبيرة فقط، وأن الأمر سوف يكون محفوفًا بالمخاطر للغاية بالنسبة إلى المنصات لاستضافة محتوى من صناع محتوى أصغر، لأن المنصات سوف تكون مسؤولة بشكل مباشر عن هذا المحتوى، وحثت سوزان وجسيكي مستخدمي يويتوب على استخدام هاشتاج “#SaveYourInternet” في مواقع التواصل الاجتماعي للتعبير عن معارضتهم لتوجهات الاتحاد الأوروبي.

تجميده لا يسبب السرطان.. تعرفي على طريقة تخزين الثوم

 تجميده لا يسبب السرطان.. تعرفي على طريقة تخزين الثوم
كتبت - حسناء الشيمي:

تقبل بعض السيدات على تجفيف الخضروات الموسمية، وتخزينها في الفريزر، ومن أبرزها الثوم، ولكن انتشرت في الآونة الأخيرة على مواقع التواصل الاجتماعي، تحذيرات من المخاطر التي يسببها تجميده، حيث يجعل الإنسان عرضة للإصابة بالسرطان، ولكن ما مدى صحتها؟

هل تجميد الثوم يسبب السرطان؟

وفي هذا الصدد، أكدت الدكتورة ليندا جاد الحق، استشاري التغذية والعلاجية، أن ذلك التحذير ما هو إلا خرافة، موضحةً أن تخزين الثوم في الفريزر لا يسبب السرطان، ولكن يفقده قيمته الغذائية فقط، كتحميره في المواد الدهنية.

دق الثوم لا يفقده قيمته الغذائية

وقالت ليندا إن دق الثوم لا يقلل من فوائده كما هو شائع، بل يظل محتفط بعناصره كاملة، كمضادات الأكسدة التي تساعد على تقوية المناعة، فضلًا عن كونه مطهر معوي من البكتيريا والجراثيم.

طريقة تخزين الثوم

وأوضحت استشاري التغذية العلاجية أن الثوم ليس بحاجة إلى التخزين، لأنه متوفر على مدار العام، مضيفةً أن تناوله طازجًا يجعل الجسم يستفاد من فوائده كاملة.
ولكن بما أن تخزين الثوم يقلل الوقت والجهد على بعض السيدات، أشار الدكتور أحمد إسماعيل، أخصائي التغذية العلاجية، إلى أن الطريقة الأنسب لتخزينه، هي:
- فرم الثوم.
- ثم إضافة زيت ذرة إليه.
- ثم نضعه في برطمان زجاجي في الثلاجة.
- وفي حال الرغبة في حفظه لفترة طويلة، يمكن تخزينه كما هو في البلكونة، دون الحاجة إلى تقشيره.

"تسبب السرطان".. هاني الناظر يحذر من خطورة المشروبات الساخنة

"تسبب السرطان".. هاني الناظر يحذر من خطورة المشروبات الساخنة
كتبت- ياسمين الصاوي

حذر الدكتور هاني الناظر، أستاذ أمراض الجلدية ورئيس المركز القومي للبحوث سابقًا، من شرب الشاي الساخن وغيرها من المشروبات عالية الحرارة.

أشار "الناظر" في تدوينة له عبر "فيسبوك" إلى ما ذكرته الدراسة الحديثة التي نشرتها صحيفة "ديلي ميل" بأن الشاي الساخن يرفع فرص الإصابة بسرطان المريء، ناصحًا بضرورة ترك الشاي حتى يبرد أو إضافة الحليب البارد لخفض حرارته، وهو الأمر الذي ينطبق على القهوة أيضًا.


الجدير بالذكر أن الدراسة أكدت على ضرورة عدم تناول المشروبات الساخنة بدرجة حرارة 65 سليزيوس (140 درجة فهرنهايت)، لأنها تزيد من خطر الإصابة بسرطان المريء بنسبة 90%، فالماء المغلي يعمل على تهيج خط الفم والحلق، من خلال تتبع عادات شرب الشاي لدى 50,045 شخص، تتراوح أعمارهم بين 40 إلى 75 عامًا، وتبين إصابة 317 شخص بسرطان المريء.
وذكرت الدراسة أن ارتفاع حرارة الشاي تعمل على إصابة المريء والتهابه، ما يدمر الحمض النووي ويسبب إنتاج مواد كيميائية سامة، تشبه في تأثيرها السموم الناتجة عن الكحوليات والتدخين.


وتتلخص أعراض سرطان المريء في صعوبة البلع، والشعور بحرقان، ومشكلات بالهضم، والقئ بعد مدة قصيرة من تناول الطعام، وفقدان الشهية، وإنقاص الوزن، كما يعد واحدًا من الأسباب الرئيسة للوفاة

8-Year-Old Child Bride Dies From Internal Bleeding After Her Wedding Night

A few cultures around the world allow young girls to marry much older men (sometimes the man is five times older!).
One problem that those of us who don’t believe in arranged marriages have with this is the girl is too young.
She is too young to understand what is happening to her and she is physically too young to handle the sexual ‘duties’ of a wife.

CNN reported that Yemen is one country that still has no legislation for a minimum age for marriage.
One 8-year-old girl was married to an older man in Yemen through an arranged marriage.
He raped her on their wedding night – she is now dead.

Her death was caused by internal bleeding. There are opponents to arranged marriage in Yemen.
That country has the highest death rates in the world.
If this keeps up, they will have very few women left to give birth.
The White Ribbon Alliance stated that one in 90 women will die during childbirth in Yemen.

The White Ribbon Alliance believes that having healthy mothers will give a healthy world.
Their goal, according to their website is to make sure women know their rights about being healthy and safe before they get pregnant.
An affiliate of the White Ribbon Alliance, the National Safe Motherhood Alliance (NSMA), and The White Ribbon Alliance are hoping to start a conversation about this issue in Yemen.



Let us hope that government officials are open to listening to the concerns of these groups.
Laws need to be established to protect the young girls and women in Yemen.
Share away, people.

Islamists Burn Houses, Murder Nine More Christians in Nigeria






Muslim Fulani militants killed nine more Christians in Nigeria’s Middle Belt over the weekend, the latest strike in a string of lethal, religiously motivated attacks.

The governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai, confirmed that the assault in the Sanga local government area had claimed at least nine lives, adding to the death toll of 120 Christians massacred in central Nigeria since February.
“The security agencies have so far recovered nine corpses, including children,” El-Rufai said. “The attackers also burnt several houses in the village. The government condemns this attack on the lives and security of citizens and appeals to our communities to resist those who do not want peace.”


https://powr.com/video/PxNuBEME6X-10139416

A week ago, the Fulani jihadists, who have become a greater threat to Nigerian Christians than the Islamist terror group Boko Haram, raided the villages of Inkirimi, Dogonnoma, and Ungwan Gora in the Kajuru Local Government Area, destroying 143 homes, killing 52 people, and wounding dozens more.
From June 2015 to June 2018, Fulani militants “killed 8,800 Christians and other non-Muslims,” Nigeria’s Daily Post reported last year. During that same period, terrorists torched “not less than 1,000″ churches and other places of worship.
Despite the severity of these massacres, they went virtually unreported by international media.
Governor El-Rufai has vowed that the government, security agencies, and religious institutions will work towards creating “sustainable peace.”
“In this moment of grief, we must come together to defeat the machinations of those who have no notion of respect for the lives of others,” El-Rufai said.
“Violence has left an unacceptable toll of death and injury, loss of livelihoods, pain and fear. We must overcome this by respecting our common humanity, settling differences peacefully and promptly reporting threats and suspicions to the appropriate authorities. Evil will never triumph over our common humanity,” he said.
When mainstream media have reported on the slaughter of Christians in central Nigeria, they have downplayed the religious nature of the killings, preferring to attribute the violence to “ethnic tensions,” a “battle for land and resources,” or even “climate change.”
Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari, who is himself of the Fulani ethnic group, has encouraged this narrative, minimizing the importance of religion in the conflict.
Two local Catholic bishops, however, along with other Christian leaders, have insisted in calling out the violence for what it is: a “clear agenda for Islamizing the Nigerian Middle Belt” by using armed Fulani jihadists.
One of the bishops, Matthew Ishaya Audu of Lafia, said last year that the ongoing attacks are not random or economically motivated, but purposefully target Christians.
“They want to strike Christians,” Bishop Audu said, “and the government does nothing to stop them, because President Buhari is also of the Fulani ethnic group.”
Other observers agree that the attacks form part of a larger plan to eliminate Christians from the area.
“The killings are becoming no longer herder and farmer clashes” but a “deliberate attempt to conquer and occupy the land of the people’s ancestral heritage,” said Dr. Soja Bewarang, while denouncing an attack on a Bible school that trained Christian missionaries in Gana-Ropp village.
Reverend Gideon Para-Mallam, of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students in Jos, said that the violence is part of a pattern, an emerging agenda, which represents “another Boko Haram in disguise.”
The targeted nature of the attacks in central Nigeria is indicative, Para-Mallam said, “because Plateau state is the epicenter of Christianity.”
President Buhari condemned the most recent violence and the “ethnic and religious bigotry” in a statement Saturday. He stressed, however, that all “communities involved” must find a “lasting solution.”
“[The] lack of cooperation by those involved might frustrate government’s efforts towards finding a lasting solution, especially if those efforts are politicized,” Buhari said. “If the people resist government’s efforts to hold the perpetrators and their sponsors accountable, it would be very difficult to bring the violence to a permanent end.”
In its 2018 report, the independent United States Commission for International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) determined that Nigeria should be designated as a “country of particular concern,” or CPC, a term for governments “that engage in or tolerate systematic, ongoing, egregious violations of religious freedom.”
The USCIRF has designated Nigeria a CPC every year since 2009.

هل تؤدي سمّاعات البلوتوث فعلاً إلى الإصابة بالسرطان؟

Article image

انتشرت سمّاعات البلوتوث بشكل كبير في الآونة الأخيرة بعد أن توقفت شركات الهواتف المحمولة عن وضع منفذ للسمّاعات السلكية في الكثير من أجهزتها الحديثة، كما أن استخدامها أسهل خلال التنقّل والحركة وممارسة النشاطات اليومية. من خلال هذه التوجّه، ربما تفترض بأن سلامة تقنية البلوتوث قد تم إثباتها من زمن بعيد، ولكن هذا الافتراض غير صحيح. إذ عبّر بعض الخبراء في هذا المجال عن مخاوفهم من تأثيراتها الصحية.
وقامت مؤخراً مجموعة مؤلّفة من 250 عالماً من أكثر من 40 دولة بالتوقيع على عريضة مقدَّمة إلى الأمم المتحدة ومنظمة الصحة العالمية تُعرب فيها عن “قلقها الشديد” بشأن المخاطر الصحية المرتبطة بالحقول الكهرومغناطيسية المنبعثة من الأجهزة اللاسلكية، بما فيها سمّاعات البلوتوث.
تدعو العريضة البرنامج البيئي للأمم المتحدة إلى إنشاء لجنة مستقلة متعدّدة التخصّصات لتقييم بدائل للإجراءات الحالية والتي يمكنها أن تقلّل من التعرّض للحقول الكهرومغناطيسية. وتنصّ العريضة على أن “العديد من المنشورات العلمية الحديثة أظهرت بأن الحقول الكهرومغناطيسية تؤثّر على الكائنات الحية بمستويات أقل بكثير من المستويات المنصوص عليها في معظم المبادئ التوجيهية الدولية والمحلية”. وذكرت بأن الأبحاث أظهرت ارتباط هذه الحقول بالسرطانات والاضطرابات العصبية وأضرار الحمض النووي. كما أشارت إلى النتائج التي توصلت إليها الوكالة الدولية لأبحاث السرطان، والتي قرّرت بأن هذه الحقول الكهرومغناطيسية قد تكون “مسبّبة للسرطان” عند البشر. وعلى الرغم من أن منظمة الصحة العالمية قد اعتمدت هذا التصنيف، إلا أنها أكدت بأن هناك نقصاً في البيانات التي تدعم خفض حدود المستويات الآمنة للتعرّض.
يختلف خبراء آخرون مع العريضة ويقولون بأنه عند مراجعة وتحليل كافة الأبحاث المتعلّقة بالحقول الكهرومغناطيسية، فإن البيانات تشير بوضوح إلى عدم وجود أضرار. ويشير كينيث فوستر -أستاذ الهندسة الحيوية بجامعة بنسلفانيا والذي درس تأثيرات الإشعاعات اللاسلكية على صحة الإنسان- إلى أن منظمة الصحة العالمية وغيرها من منظمات الصحة العامة قد قامت بتحليل الأبحاث المنشورة حول تقنية البلوتوث وغيرها من التقنيات اللاسلكية ولم تجد “أي دليل واضح على المخاطر الصحية عند التعرّض لها بمستويات أقل من الحدود الدولية”.
ومع ذلك، يشير علماء آخرون إلى إن التأثيرات الصحية المحتملة لهذه الأجهزة لا تعتمد فقط على شدّة الحقول الكهرومغناطيسية التي تُصدرها. فالنبضات الكهرومغناطيسية التي تتواجد في هذه الأجهزة وتساعدها على التواصل من شأنها أن تؤدي إلى تفاقم المشكلة، حيث أظهرت الأبحاث أن الحقول ذات النبضات تكون أكثر نشاطاً من الناحية البيولوجية من الحقول التي تتساوى معها بالشدّة ولا تحتوي على نبضات.
سمّاعات AirPods من شركة آبل
قامت شركة آبل بإطلاق سمّاعات AirPods في عام 2016، وأصبحت شائعة جداً منذ ذلك الحين، حيث قامت الشركة ببيع أكثر من 45 مليون منها حتى الآن. تعتمد هذه السمّاعات على تقنية البلوتوث، وتتواصل السمّاعة الموضوعة في إحدى الأذنين مع الأخرى باستخدام حقل كهرومغناطيسي يمرّ عبر الدماغ. وعلى الرغم من أنّها تُصدر مستويات منخفضة من الإشعاعات من خلال هذا الحقل، إلا أن خطورتها تكمن في أنها توضع في مكان حسّاس في الجسم داخل قناة الأذن، ولا يوجد عظم يفصلها عن الأنسجة الدماغية، مما يعرّضها لمستويات أعلى من الإشعاعات اللاسلكية.
وفي حديثه إلى صحفة ديلي ميل حول المخاطر المحتملة لاستخدام سمّاعات البلوتوث التي توضع داخل الأذن كسمّاعات AirPods، قال أستاذ الصحة المجتمعية بجامعة كاليفورنيا في بيركلي الدكتور جويل موسكوويتس: “مع سمّاعات AirPods على سبيل المثال … يميل البلوتوث لأن يكون منخفض الكثافة، وبالتالي يمكنه أن يفتح الحاجز الدموي الدماغي، والذي يتواجد لمنع الجزيئات الكبيرة من الدخول إلى الدماغ … من وجهة نظر وقائية، أودّ أن أقول بأنه لا ينبغي عليك تجربة مثل هذه الأشياء مع دماغك.”
وفي وقت سابق، قام المتحدث الرسمي لشركة آبل بالرد على المخاوف المتعلّقة بهذه السمّاعات مؤكّداً بأنها تتوافق مع إرشادات السلامة الحالية.
الخلاصة
قد لا تكون الأدلة العلمية حاسمة، ولكن إجماع 250 عالماً بارزاً على وجوب توخّي المزيد من الحذر عند استخدام التقنيات اللاسلكية -وخاصة عندما تكون قريبة من الدماغ- يجعل الحذر مبرّراً. على الأقل، قد يكون من الجيد تقليل استخدام السمّاعات اللاسلكية التي توضع داخل الأذن كسمّاعات AirPods. ولكي تكون أكثر أماناً، قد يكون الرجوع إلى السمّاعات السلكية هو الحل الأفضل. حتى وإن لم يكن هاتفك المحمول يحتوي على منفذ للسمّاعات، يمكنك استخدام محوّل صغير بكل بساطة لتجنّب المخاطر. وهناك جانب إيجابي للموضوع، وهو أنك ستوفّر عناء شحنها المتكرّر.

A Woman Who Walks 12 Miles a Day Will Now Have a Smoother Journey - Thanks to a Cop Who Gave Her a Free Bike

Toby Forbrand |
It was another long day for one woman who was keen to get to her workplace. She was walking on the sideways when she noticed a slow car approaching her through her peripheral vision. Trying to ignore it, she kept on walking, her eyes fixated on the sidewalk.
However, the car seemed persistent. It got closer and closer towards the curb. Silently praying, she wished to herself that hopefully, it was not her bad day at all. In a quick glance, the woman noticed the blue and red lights. Clearly, it was a cop car. Not today, she kept on praying. But the driver honked his horn.

Instant Confusion

The driver was clearly calling the woman’s attention. It came to a full stop now and was repeatedly honking his horn. The woman was in awe. As far as she remembers, she did nothing against the law.
She is a simple woman who waves and greets her neighbors every morning before heading out to work. She is always under control of her emotions and temper, whether it’s at home or at work. Why a cop would suddenly come over and orders her to stop?

A Familiar Figure

Sgt. Scott Bass was driving along in his cruiser that day. He was on his way to the Nash County Sheriff’s Office to report for work. He was approaching the Stone Gate Mobile Home Community when suddenly; a familiar figure caught his attention.
For days now, the cop had been hoping to see the woman. He had some sort of an unfinished business with her. Now that he had seen her, there was no way he’s going to waste the opportunity.

Caught in the Middle of a Rainstorm

The woman, Jaylesya Corbett was on her way to Bojangles. The walk was tolerable enough for her as she’s already used to it. However, that day, the rainy weather made the usual routine a harder task for her.
She had an umbrella when she left home. But when she tried to open it, a strong gust of wind had taken it out of her hand. Nevertheless, she carried on. She was nowhere near her destination. Although she’s already wet from the rain, she kept herself alert on the pools of water along the way.  It was enough of a struggle for that day and running into a cop was the last thing on her mind.

Unwelcomed Attention

For Jaylesya, walking her way to her workplace on a sunny day is a burden enough. The least she could wish on her everyday routine was the bad weather. But judging by the wind and the rain, she thought she might be caught in the middle of a category 5 hurricane.
For her, the struggle she was facing that day can be compared to ten doses of her everyday walk because of the bad weather. But she knows she can deal with it and make it successfully and safely to Bojangles – but not with a cop.

Daily Burden

Jaylesya Corbett did everything she can to make her daily routine an easy one. To the best of what she can afford, she purchased a comfortable pair of sneakers. However, she knew those shoes couldn’t save her from the rainwater. Her feet were already wet and she already feels the pain. She knew blisters were starting to form. Although it was not her first time to walk a long way, her aching feet seemed to shout for mercy.
Every day, she has to walk from home to Bojangles and back in the afternoon. The journey covers a total of 12 miles!  It might sound unbelievable to most, but for this woman, the daily burden means she could take home more of her money to her family. No one, not even a cop, can stop her from her doing so.

A Life-Changing Moment

The 12-mile walk on foot was nothing compared to Corbett’s determination. She is willing to do everything for them and that long journey is just a little sacrifice for her family. The thought of not letting them down fuel her strength every day.
However, the cop that stopped her made her rethink of everything. She is walking on the highway every day, risking her life over and over again. Perhaps she was becoming a hassle to the motorists. Could it be the reason why she’s being stopped today? But why today of all days?

She Had to Face the Cop

Jaylesya knew that pretending to ignore the cop car wouldn’t work as the driver keeps on honking his horn. Instead of killing herself on thinking what she did wrong, she finally decided to stop and wait for the cop to approach.
When the driver lowered the window, she could almost hear her own heart pounding. For her, a cop smells trouble. She was afraid that he would say dreadful things. Although she would be running late, she had no choice but to face him. If it’s judgment day, then she might as well know her fate right at that moment.

Negative Thoughts

Even if her mind didn’t tell her to stop walking, she knew the cop would soon catch her because she felt her legs and feet weak with fear. For a simple woman who just wants to do her day’s work to be able to get back to her family, this experience is too much.
There were plenty of negative thoughts in her mind. What if she did something she was unaware of? What if the cop suddenly seized her then put her in the back seat and drove straight to jail? What would happen to her poor family?

A Delightful Kind of Shock

Trying to appear as calm as she can, Jaylesya decided to approach the cop. With her heart on her feet, she walked cautiously towards the car. The side of it bores the words “Sheriff, Nash County”. She was trying to rehearse what she would say to him in her mind. But the cop spoke first.
As soon as Jaylesya Corbett heard the words, she felt flabbergasted. The words were softly spoken and yet she had a hard time processing the meaning behind them. However, when the realization finally hit her, her fear and confusion turned into a delightful surprise.

Getting In

The cop who introduced himself as Sgt. Bass smoothly told her to get out of the street. But as smooth as it sounds, Jaylesya detected the hidden authority in his tone. When he asked her get into the cop car, she told him that she had to go to Bojangles.
The cop noticed the panic on the woman’s voice. She was arguing as if her life depended on it. However, he firmly repeated his words. Jaylesya Corbett had to get into the car. Seeing that the cop wouldn’t leave her behind, she decided to follow his command. There was no way she’s going to win the argument. Now she’s completely under the cop’s control.

Waiting for Her Fate

Seated inside the cop’s car, Jaylesya felt so helpless. While she knew that she was not in danger within the cop’s hand, the fate that awaits her is still unknown. Sgt. Bass resumed driving and no words came further.
Looking at the cop, she knew he wouldn’t say any more. It was evident on his calm face that he had already made up his mind about her. Her thoughts were already spinning. Her family was all she could think of. Her job was on her mind as well. She couldn’t afford to lose it. She was in turmoil.

The Silent Drive

When Sgt. Bass continued to drive, Jayleysa began to wonder. Was he taking her to the Sheriff’s Office for further questioning? Although the cop didn’t put her handcuffs, she can’t help but feel nervous.
There was a deafening silence inside the cruiser. The cop’s eyes were focused on the road in front of them. Jayleysa kept on looking at him as if urging him to start a conversation. However, he wasn’t looking at her. It seemed that his mouth was already shut. Thinking that she might say something wrong, she decided to stay silent and tried not to appear anxious at all.

She Had to Be Patient

Outside, the rainstorm kept on attacking the city. The ride felt even slower for Jaylesa as the cop lowered down the speed for safety. It was tough to drive in such weather and she decided not to bother him at all. But deep inside her, she felt she would pass out from unspoken fear.
However, Jayleysa thought to herself. Instead of striking out a conversation that might arouse suspicion and misunderstanding, she tried to think of happy thoughts instead. She is a woman who is always up for a challenge. Although she is poor, she knew in herself that she didn’t do anything against the law. For the meantime, she had to go with the flow while at the same time, being vigilant.

Was It a Wrong Move?

Soon enough, Jayleysa regretted her decision. When her confusion was cleared, she had gotten back her wits. Come to think of it, cop or not, this man had no right to just stop her on her track without telling her the reason why.
As a respectful citizen, it was her right to know the reason behind her arrest. While he might look like a good cop, it was still wrong to order her to get in a cop’s car. Furthermore, he kept her hanging and in confusion by not speaking at all. She was about to rant when she noticed that the car was heading to Bojangles where her workplace is.

The Risk of Being Seen

Upon confirming that they were heading to her workplace, Jayleysa Corbett realized she was in a desperate position. The thoughts of her manager and workmates seeing her inside a cop’s car run on her mind. What would her boss think of her situation? It’s easy to fall into conclusion.
As a mother who provides for her family, losing a job can be the end of everything. Her situation can easily ruin her reputation and she might have a hard time finding a new job again. She regretted that she didn’t run earlier. Perhaps a lone cop would not bother running after her in the middle of a rainstorm anyway.

A Kind Heart

Sgt. Bass was aware what the woman was thinking. However, he chose to be silent. He meant no harm anyway. Driving to his work to the Sheriff’s Office of Nash County every day, he had soon learned the story of this woman who walks 12-mile on foot on a daily basis.
He had noticed the woman’s uniform. He knew she is working at Bojangles. He was aware that walking 12 miles a day on a good weather is no easy feat. Seeing her walking in the middle of a rainstorm with no umbrella almost broke his heart. To him, no one deserves that fate. He felt that he had to do something for the amazing woman.

A Leg-breaking Walk

For the cop who gets tired at times during a long drive, walking for 12 miles every day was simply unthinkable. It was his first time to hear such a story and seeing her doing it despite the bad weather was enough.
He doesn’t know much about the woman, only that she is a mother who is willing to sacrifice her health and safety for the sake of her family. Although the cop was aware that any mother would go beyond limits just to be able to feed their children, seeing one in real life who does the unthinkable for most people is simply mind-boggling. He is a toughened cop and yet this woman had touched the soft spot in his heart.

The Heartwarming Gesture

Finally, Jayleysa Corbett understood what the cop was doing. He had given her a free ride to Bojangles. Going to her workplace and back home eats four hours of her day. But the estimate was applicable only when the weather is good.
Jayleysa was blown away by the cop’s generosity. Sgt. Bass offered to give her a ride every time the weather is bad. The cop assured that they are heading the same way and that it would cause no hassle to him. He didn’t tell her how amazed he is for her unrivaled determination. However, his act of generosity was more than enough for Jayleysa. She felt very grateful. But it seemed that it was only the beginning of a life-changing moment.

He Wanted to Do More

Sgt. Bass was blown away by the woman’s willingness and effort to make it to her work every day so that she could provide for her family. While most women today take their share of the work, for the cop, Jayleysa is different.
As a cop, he knew it was not his responsibility to give the woman a free ride to her work when it is raining. It was not in his job description. However, he couldn’t get the thought of her daily struggle off her mind. He knew he can do more for this hardworking mother. But what could he give?

The Unexpected Invitation

Although Sgt. Bass kept his offer and continued to give her a lift, Jayleysa Corbett couldn’t help but felt nervous when the cop asked her to meet up. It was not raining and she didn’t have the slightest idea why Sgt. Bass wanted to see her. But then, she complied.
She was asked to come over to the Sheriff’s Office. Although she was not sure what it’s all about, she felt sure that the cop meant no harm. When he saw her, he reached out in his vehicle and took out something. It was a new Schwinn Fairhaven Women’s Cruiser bicycle. Before she could even react, Sgt. Bass told her that it’s a present for her.

A Rare Act of Kindness

While on her way to meet Sgt. Bass, Jayleysa Corbett kept on thinking that she would end up in jail. But when the cop presented the gift, she instantly felt ashamed for thinking the worst. To her, kindness from grown-ups is so rare it can be compared to an eclipse.
Looking at the brand new bike, Jayleysa didn’t know what to say. In an instant, she knew her life was about to change. The cop’s simple act of kindness made her believed in humanity once more.

A Token of Admiration

For Sgt. Bass, Jayleysa is one of the most admirable persons he met in his lifetime. For the sake of her family, she doesn’t care to get blisters on her feet, walking a total of 12 miles every day, back and forth from her work. Not only that. The woman’s work requires her to stand all day which makes the situation even harder.
Seeing a glimpse of opportunity to somehow lessen her daily burden, Sgt. Bass thought of a way on how he can help her. The mother who faces all kinds of weather just to be able to raise her family in a decent way had gained his full admiration.

Totally Deserving

Today, even those people who can afford to have their own vehicles or those who can pay for transportation costs opt to use bikes for a healthier living. For Jayleysa, the bike can make all the difference in her life. Finally, her legs and feet wouldn’t have to take the full journey anymore. With a bike, everything seems easier.
Although it’s quite awkward for Jayleysa to receive something like this from a cop who’s almost a stranger to her in one way or another, Sgt. Bass made her feel that he is not doing this for the sake of charity. Instead, he made her feel that she totally deserved the gift. It warmed her heart knowing that someone out there appreciates her hard work.

Words of Respect and Admiration

The meeting between Sgt. Bass and Jayleysa Corbett was recorded by other cops from Nash County Sheriff’s Office. The video was then posted on Youtube by CBS17. In a matter of hours, the video gained more than 6,000 views. Judging by the comments and likes, the community was amazed by the life-changing moment.
The Nash County Sheriff’s Office felt too proud of their cop’s act of generosity. They were really impressed by the woman’s story and thought of the same. She totally deserved what Sgt. Bass had given her. They also added a post to the viral video, recognizing Sgt. Bass’s attitude towards lending a helping hand to those in need.

A Model Cop

There’s no denying that some people do not trust the police force anymore. But just like any other profession, if there are bad apples, there are the good ones as well. Who would have thought that a hardened man would notice a woman’s silent struggle every day?
Sgt. Bass had clearly set a new inspiration to the other cops. His act of kindness is proof that it doesn’t matter how big or how little. The most important thing is the thought of helping someone in need. It might not be in his job description. However, he went out of his way to change someone’s life for the better.

Will You Do the Same?

Since the video went viral, people from the media sought Jayleysa Corbett who gladly put up with an interview. When asked about what she felt, she told the media that she was shocked. It was like a dream for her.
She didn’t have the slightest idea that Sgt. Bass was already aware of her journey every day. Whenever she walks, all that she thinks of is how to get to her work on time. Little did she know that someone out there was watching her, admiring her for her determination. Today, she doesn’t need to walk 12 miles on foot anymore!

It Was Hard to Ignore

Sgt, Bass can easily drive to his work every day, completely ignoring the woman. But as days go by, the thought of her daily burden began to creep into his mind. That day when he saw her making her way to work in the middle of a rainstorm, he realized he just can’t look. He needed to do something.
Sgt. Bass’s mission in life is to serve and protect. Seeing how Jayleysa Corbett risks her life every day for her family, the cop knew he can make her life a little better. It doesn’t need expensive gifts to bring a little change. To him, the bike was nothing compared to the woman’s sacrifice for her beloved family.

Nothing Beats a Mother’s Love

Being a mother is considered as one of the toughest professions in the world. From giving birth to the very end, a mother’s sacrifice for her kids is priceless. Some would not eat just to be able to feed their children. They always think of themselves as the last priority.
Jayleysa Corbett is one of these amazing moms who can give all of herself to her family. She doesn’t mind spending four hours walking back and forth just to be able to take home a bigger amount of money so that her kids can have more. No matter what challenges she’s up to, the thought of her family serves as her strength and armor.

A Lifetime Memory

Corbett was not expecting that someone would notice her perseverance. All she ever wanted is to be able to provide for her family and to keep her strong work ethic. She became oblivious of her surroundings.
Sgt. Bass’s gift will always remind her that good things can happen at the most unexpected time and that there are still people who believe that this world can be a better place.

Three pedophiles are publicly shot five times and hanged from a crane as punishment for killing a 10-year-old boy

Three pedophiles in Yemen were publicly shot in the heart five times then hanged from a crane as punishment for raping and killing a 10-year-old boy.
In the photos below, the rapists and killers were wearing blue overalls as they walked in front of crowds in the center of Sana’a, Yemen’s biggest city.

The three were handcuffed, ordered to lie face down as the authorities shot them five times in the heart.
Mohammed Said al-‘Uqri, 27, Abdul Jalil al-Ashhab, 19, and Ghaleb al-Rashdi, also 19, were all executed by a firing squad.
Then, the corpses of convicted pedophiles were hanged high into the air by a crane where they were left hanging as a grim warning to other possible offenders while watchers took photos with their phones.
According to reports in the Middle East, these men tortured the 10-year-old before choking him. Then, they hid the body in an abandoned home.
The crime was committed last October. The young boy was abducted while going to his grandmother’s house, restrained and then attacked in a school nearby. The corpse was found four days later.

Yemen is one of the world’s top executors with capital punishment for violent crimes including terrorism, rape, and murder.
They also use the death penalty in cases of Islamic or ‘Hudud’ offenses under Sharia law such as sexual misconduct, adultery, blasphemy, sodomy, apostasy, and prostitution.

Although sentences are carried out by shooting, other types of penalties permitted within the Yemeni penal code include beheading, hanging and stoning.
There are still around fifty countries that still impose death penalties.
Recently, Saudi Arabia executed and crucified a killer who stabbed a woman until the victim died.

In Myanmar, a man was beheaded and his corpse was put on display on a cross in Mecca.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you agree that people who commit such crimes deserve death penalties? Let us know in the comments section below!
