Steven Pladl, 42, left his wife to start a relationship with his 20-year-old daughter Katie Pladl, who has now reportedly given birth to his child. Steven also told his other children that they should start referring to their eldest sibling as their “step-mom”, according to court documents.
Katie was given up for adoption at birth in 1998. When she turned 18, she decided to track down her biological parents. She reportedly first contacted her biological parents through social media. The family then arranged for her to come and visit them in Richmond, West Virginia, in August 2016 and she met the Pladl’s and her two younger siblings.

Katie posted Instagram photos of herself heavily pregnant and kissing her dad by a lake in July 2017, with a caption that suggested it was their “wedding day”.
She wrote: “Nothing fancy, just love #justmarried #simplewedding #pregnancy

The couple are now facing criminal charges after police uncovered the horrendous scandal.

China has accused the United States of having a “Cold War mentality” after the latter announced its plans to diversify its nuclear arsenal by developing smaller bombs.

 
On Sunday the 4th of February, the Chinese foreign ministry said that the US should focus on promoting regional stability, and criticized a US government report that recorded Beijing as a potential nuclear enemy.The US nuclear report also included Russia, North Korea and Iran as potential threats.
 
The ministry continued their statement saying: “The country that owns the world’s largest nuclear arsenal should take the initiative to follow the trend instead of going against it; the US has 7,000 warheads compared with China‘s 300″.

Friday 23rd February Has Been Declared a Day of Prayer and Fasting For the Whole World

Pope Francis invited Roman Catholics and members of all other religions on Sunday to observe a day of prayer, fasting and initiatives for peace on Feb. 23, urging everyone to ‘say no’ to violence and conflict.
Francis, speaking to tens of thousands of people in St. Peter’s Square for his weekly blessing, said he was making the appeal because of the “tragic prolonging” of conflicts around the world.
He said “everyone, in their own consciences, before God, should ask ‘what can I do for peace?’ Surely, we can pray but not only: each one of us can say ‘no’ to violence in their own way, because victories obtained through violence are false victories, while working for peace benefits all,” he said.

He specifically invited non-Catholics and non-Christians to join the initiative in any way they saw fit, “but all together”.

Francis said the prayers and fasting should be offered in a particular way for the people of the Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan. South Sudan has been hit by a prolonged civil war and humanitarian crisis.

9 Women including Halle Berry Accuses Vincent Cirrincione for sexual Harassment

The now manager of the famous actress ( Taraji P Hanson ) who is called “cookie” on the movie title empire has been accused by 9 black women including Halle Berry for sexual harassment.
Vincent, who is closely associated with the successful careers of Halle Berry and Taraji P. Henson, reportedly preyed on young women looking to break into Hollywood. The Washington Post reports that the women claim Vincent used his reputation “as an important gatekeeper for black actresses” to “prey upon young women of color seeking an entry into Hollywood.”
Halle Berry has since come forward to address the allegations against her former manager. She condemned his actions and said she was livid that he used her to lure young women.

Cirrincione responded to the allegations at length to the Post, saying he did pursue sexual relationships with actresses. However, he denies asking for sexual favors and non-consensual acts.
“We live in a time where men are being confronted with a very real opportunity to take responsibility for their actions. I support this movement wholeheartedly. I have had female clients and employees my entire career in this industry. I have built a reputation for advancing the careers of women of color.
“I have had affairs while in committed relationships, ones I am now ashamed to say are coming to light and shading my past and my reputation. I can say without a doubt that I have never used favors, sexual or otherwise, as a reason for managing anyone. I want to make it clear that not one of those relationships were anything but consensual.
“I take responsibility for my part in the situation and I am not here to diminish anyone’s feelings or experiences. I apologize to these women, my past and present partner, my clients and employees for the pain this is bringing them. I was under the impression I was living my life as a supportive man to women. It is with a heavy heart that I see now I was wrong.”
In a statement to the Post, Berry said she ended her working relationship with Cirrincione more than three years ago, after hearing a woman on a radio program say that he was her “worst casting-couch experience ever.”

Isreali Prime Minister warns African Migrants to leave Isreal by The end of March.

Israel began noticing African migrants to start planning themselves to leave their country by the end the end of March. The Isreali prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has given an announcement on the 3rd of February stating the plans he has implemented to deport about 38,000 migrants who had entered the country illegally, mainly Eritreans and Sudanese.   The controversial plan gives them until the end of next month to leave voluntarily or face jail and eventual expulsion. Immigration authority spokeswoman Sabine Haddad told AFP that officials began issuing migrants letters on Sunday advising them that they had 60 days in which to leave the country voluntarily.
The authority is offering those who agree to leave a grant of $3,500, a flight ticket and help with obtaining travel documents. Should they not leave by the deadline, the grant would be reduced and “enforcement measures” would be taken against them and anyone employing them, the authority says. Israel refers to the tens of thousands of African migrants who entered the country illegally from neighboring Egypt as “infiltrators”.

The UN refugee agency has called on Israel to scrap the plan, calling it incoherent and unsafe. A 2016 UN commission of inquiry into Eritrea’s regime found “widespread and systematic” crimes against humanity, and said an estimated 5,000 people flee the country each month. The International Criminal Court has indicted Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir on charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide linked to his regime’s counter-insurgency tactics in the Darfur conflict.

Kpana Lewis (April 19, 1830 – May 10, 1912) was a Sherbro chief from Sierra Leone and an opponent of colonial rule of the British. He exercised strong influence over all Sherbro chiefs. Part of his fame rested in his pervasive use of the Poro Secret Society to oppose the British colonialists. He was considered so powerful that, while Bai Bureh was allowed to return from exile after the 1898 Rebellion, Kpana Lewis continued to be held in exile in the Gold Coast (now Ghana), where he died in 1912.
