The National Transitional Council (NTC) official Abdel Majid said Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has been captured and wounded in both legs on Thursday.
“He’s captured. He’s wounded in both legs … He’s been taken away by ambulance,” the senior NTC military official told Reuters by telephone.
Update: NTC spokesman Abdel Hafiz Ghoga said that Muammar Gaddafi is dead.
“We announce to the world that Gaddafi has been killed at the hands of the revolution,” Ghoga said.
Just days after Apple has revealed their new iPhone 4S and new iOS, founder Steve Jobs dies in California at age of 56.
Steve Jobs has been the brain icon behind an empire of technological products that has revolutionized computing, telephony and the music industry. Because of Steve Jobs, there are iPhone, iPad, iPod, iMac and iTunes. Great technologies that came from a great mind and that we are all enjoying.
Apple announced his death without giving a specific cause.
“We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today,” the company said in a brief statement. “Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.”
Jobs had been battling an illness for almost a decade. He has struggled with a cancer in 2003 and a liver transplant six years later. Recently, his gaunt appearance and frequent leave of absence has stirred rumors that the icon was not in good health. And just last August, he had resigned as Apple’s CEO.
Bill Gates, the former chief executive of Microsoft, said in a statement that he was “truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs’s death”. He added: “The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come. For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honour. I will miss Steve immensely.”
Jobs is survived by his wife, Laurene, and four children. In a statement his family said Jobs “died peacefully today surrounded by his family … We know many of you will mourn with us, and we ask that you respect our privacy during our time of grief”.
Thank you Steve Jobs for your contribution to the world. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. May you rest in peace.
In a perfect setting, Adele wanders around Paris at dawn. She’s walking by streets and remembering her long-lost love. The black-and-white shot makes the video even more daunting. The loneliness is almost tangible.
Someone Like You tells a story about Adele visiting her former love with hopes of them getting back together again. But while she was still dwelling on the past, the guy has already moved on and he’s in a much better place. She convinces herself that life goes on for her as well even though she knows too well that there are no happy endings for her. The video ends at dawn, a time for heartbreak. With her powerful voice, Someone Like You video is sure to resonate with viewers.
21, Adele’s highly successful second album, was written entirely about one guy who broke Adele’s heart. The reason why this album is sooo eerie. Now, she’s back to being “friends” with the guy who put her through all that. Adele explains: “We’re becoming friends again. It’s alright, I know what I’m doing. Enough time has gone by.”
Whoever broke Adele’s heart has surely made a big mistake. What do you think? Is it a good idea that Adele rekindled her friendship with her ex?
The Playboy bunny recently revealed that she has a $1 million policy with Lloyd’s of London on her breasts. Lloyd’s of London is best known for its unusual insurance policies on various body parts of the rich and famous and People Magazine reported that Madison took out her new boob insurance policy to protect herself and the people that perform with her in the Las Vegas production, “ Striptease Spectacular” Peep Show. Madison told People Magazine:
“”I’ve heard about people getting body parts insured and I thought, why not? If anything happened to my boobs, I’d be out for a few months and I’d probably be out a million dollars. I thought I’d cover my assets.”
Hey, there’s nothing wrong with protecting your most valuable assets right? And besides, she is not the only celebrity who insured something. Singer Tina Turner has her legs insured, Celine Dion with her vocal chords, David Lee Roth insured himself against his own sperm and Adam Lambert insures his crotch for $1 million. It’s superficial, we know. But you have to understand that these “special” talent and features are what makes them famous. These are what give them a lot of money.
“I think it’s kind of funny. I think they’re getting the credit they deserve. They’re my primary money makers right now,” Madison said.
Do you think it’s a good investment?
