19-year-old boy reportedly ties the knot with 20 year old lady

Posted on 16.3.19
A young Nigerian man has tied the knot with a lady 20 years older than him

The man reportedly tied the knot with a 39-year-old lady

As Dbanj said, love is a beautiful thing. The magic of love is powerful enough to break barriers and even bring people who have nothing in common together.

It sometimes comes off as weird when a young person claims or professes love for someone who is older than them. But when it comes to love, age barriers has got no chance to fight.



The love story was shared by a Facebook user identified as Akulo Sams Ochens. According to the Facebook user, the idea of their love proves that age is just a number.

He wrote: Age is just a number. 19yrs old boy got married to a 39yrs old lady. love is beautiful . Congs.

In the photos shared, the groom was seen dressed in the popular white Arabian attire and the bride rocked a peach coloured lacey wedding dress for their wedding.

There were other photos showing the couple as they live their lives after tying the knot. In one of the photos, the woman was seen serving her husband food on her knees.

Can I have sex during my period? Can I get pregnant during my period?

Can I have sex during my period? and If I do can I get pregnant?

It’s perfectly safe to have sex during your period. In fact, having an orgasm may help relieve menstrual cramps.

If a woman is using a tampon, she should remove it before anything is inserted into her vagina during sex. Otherwise the tampon and its string could get pushed up too deep in the vagina for the woman to get it out herself.





It’s possible (although rare) for a woman to get pregnant during her period. A woman has a good chance of becoming pregnant from unprotected vaginal intercourse during the six days that end in ovulation. She’s less likely to become pregnant from unprotected intercourse in the day or two following ovulation, but it’s possible. Ovulation usually occurs about 14 days before the start of a woman’s menstrual cycle. Sperm can live up to seven days. In very short cycles — less than 22 days — it’s possible for live sperm from sex during menstruation to still be in a woman’s reproductive tract when ovulation occurs.

Forty killed, more than 20 injured in New Zealand mosque shootings



Forty people were killed and more than 20 seriously wounded in mass shootings at two mosques in New Zealands Christchurch on Friday, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said.

Ardern said New Zealand had been placed on its highest security threat level. She said four people in police custody held extremist views, but had not been on any police watchlists.

Earlier

A gunman opened fire on Friday prayers at a mosque in New Zealand killing many worshippers and forcing the city of Christchurch into lockdown, in what looked set to be the countrys worst ever mass shooting.

New Zealand media reported that between nine and 27 people were killed, but the death toll could not be confirmed. Police said multiple fatalities had occurred at two mosques, but it was unclear how many attackers were involved.

Video footage widely circulated on social media, apparently taken by a gunman and posted online live as the attack unfolded, showed him driving to one mosque, entering it and shooting randomly at people inside.

Worshippers, possibly dead or wounded, lay huddled on the floor of the mosque, the video showed. Reuters was unable to confirm the authenticity of the footage.

One man who said he was at the Al Noor mosque told media the gunman was white, blond and wearing a helmet and a bulletproof vest. The man burst into the mosque as worshippers were kneeling for prayers.

He had a big gun ... he came and started shooting everyone in the mosque, everywhere, said the man, Ahmad Al-Mahmoud. He said he and others escaped by breaking through a glass door.





Radio New Zealand quoted a witness inside the mosque saying he heard shots fired and at least four people were lying on the ground and there was blood everywhere.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern condemned what she called an extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence.

This is one of New Zealands darkest days, she said.

Neither Ardern nor police gave a casualty toll.

New Zealands Police Commissioner Mike Bush said four people - three men and a woman - had been taken into custody but it was not clear if the gunman was among them or if other people were involved.

Bush also said it should not be assumed the attack was isolated to Christchurch. At this point in time we should never make assumptions, he said.

Bush also said IEDs, improvised explosive devices, were found with a vehicle they stopped.

The online video footage, which appeared to have been captured on a camera strapped to the gunmans head, showed red petrol canisters in the back of his car, along with weapons.



All mosques in New Zealand had been asked to shut their doors, police said.

The Bangladesh cricket team was arriving for Friday prayers when the shooting occurred but all members were safe, a team coach told Reuters.

The foreign minister of Indonesia, which has the worlds biggest Muslim population, condemned the shooting.

Muslims account for just over 1 percent of New Zealands population, a 2013 census showed.

Many of those who would have been affected by this shooting may be migrants to New Zealand, Ardern said.

They may even be refugees here. They have chosen to make New Zealand their home and it is their home ... they are us. The persons who has perpetuated this violence against us ... have no place in New Zealand.

Blood Everywhere

The online footage showed the gunman driving as music played in his vehicle. After parking, he took two guns and walked a short distance to the entrance of the mosque.

He then opened fire. Over the course of five minutes, he repeatedly shoots worshippers, leaving well over a dozen bodies in one room alone. He returned to the car during that period to change guns, and went back to the mosque to shoot anyone showing signs of life.

The video shows the gunman driving off at high speed and later firing at parked cars and a building. Police said the second mosque attacked was in the suburb of Linwood, but gave no details.




Another unconfirmed video taken by someone else appeared to show police apprehending the gunman by the side of a road.

The Bangladesh cricket team is in Christchurch to play New Zealand in a third cricket test starting on Saturday.

They were on the bus, which was just pulling up to the mosque when the shooting begun,” Mario Villavarayen, strength and conditioning coach of the Bangladesh cricket team, told Reuters in a message. They are shaken but good.”

The third cricket test was canceled, New Zealand Cricket said later.

Violent crime is rare in New Zealand and police do not usually carry guns.

Before Friday, New Zealands worst mass shooting was in 1990 when a gun-mad loner killed 11 men, women and children in a 24-hour rampage in the tiny seaside village of Aramoana. He was killed by police.

The best VPN to use to protect your privacy

Posted on 10.3.19
It’s best practice to use a virtual private network (VPN) to hide your internet activity from snoops. A VPN establishes an encrypted connection between your device of choice and a private server, which can be ideal if you value security. But VPNs are also a dime a dozen in app stores. Worse, it’s often hard to tell them apart. Many VPNs are simply named “VPN” with a generic image of a lock to make you feel secure. We’ve gone over how to set up a VPN. But which VPN should you use?

The problem is that there are too many VPNs out there, and it can take a long time to figure out which ones work the best. At first glance, they all function the same way: you download one, allow it to access a bunch of rights, and press connect to a server (usually the one nearest to you). Googling “best VPN” doesn’t always get the answers, either. One website will say a VPN is incredibly fast, while another will say the same VPN is average speed. Because any VPN worth its salt costs money (something you should definitely keep in mind), you will probably want to take advantage of a free trial. But then there’s a chance that you might forget to cancel, even if you feel it’s an undesirable VPN subscription.
I decided to see for myself which VPNs work the best. I considered a lot of criteria, from which ones have the fastest download speeds to which ones let you run on the most devices simultaneously.

The best VPNs work in multiple countries so that, no matter where you travel, there is a server nearby securely providing fast internet. (It’s a plus if the VPN manages to work in China, one of the few places in the world where a firewall blocks Google and Reddit.) If you’re really security-conscious, you’ll want the VPN’s company headquarters to be located outside of the US and Europe because both require companies to retain your personal data and hand it over to authorities when necessary.
It’s also important that the VPN you choose doesn’t log your personal data and web activity, ensuring your privacy. You’ll also want your VPN to have an automatic kill switch that will cut off your internet connection in the event the VPN is disconnected so that your IP address isn’t exposed.
Having the largest possible number of servers in the largest number of countries is also essential. If the VPN doesn’t connect within your region, your internet speeds will be significantly slowed. I also took into consideration customer service, user interface, and, of course, pricing.
While I tested these VPNs largely on iOS and Android, all of the ones I chose also support macOS and Windows, and many support Chrome OS and Linux.

The best VPN: ExpressVPN

ExpressVPN makes it to the top of most VPN rankings, and it is really hard to beat. It makes sure you’re covered on every aspect of what you’ll need from a VPN. The company says it’s AES 256-bit encrypted and accepts the major VPN security protocols.
I found the ExpressVPN interface to be clear and simple to use. You basically need no knowledge of VPNs to set up ExpressVPN. There’s a large connect button, and you’re able to switch locations even while connected. Once you’re connected, ExpressVPN reliably stays connected. (There’s an automatic kill switch in case ExpressVPN does disconnect.) I found browsing the web and even downloading files to be quick, whether I was on Wi-Fi or walking in remote areas. Out of all the VPNs I tested, ExpressVPN consistently gave me the lowest ping.

Reputation is everything for a VPN, and, thankfully, ExpressVPN’s name hasn’t come up in any data breaches so far. Since it’s based in the British Virgin Islands, it’s also out of the jurisdiction of US and European governments, so it hasn’t come up in the news for handing users’ data over to the police when requested.
ExpressVPN still works in China for now, even though VPNs are technically banned within the country. On my trip to China last October, I relied heavily on ExpressVPN to use Google Maps to check what town I was in, read up on the latest Hong Kong politics, and check Twitch streams. All three activities were blocked every time I disconnected from the VPN to use Chinese services.
ExpressVPN has over 3,000 servers in 94 countries for a total of 160 locations, according to the latest numbers from its site. That’s well above most of its competition, and it means that wherever you reside and whatever countries you travel to, you should be covered for the most part.
The only downside to ExpressVPN is its price. While its month-to-month fee of $12.95 is only slightly higher than many of its competitors’ prices, its annual fee of $99.95 (which works out to $8.32 per month) is even steeper. But the company offers refunds within 30 days if it doesn’t live up to expectations, so you don’t have to take my word for it.

A less expensive option: NordVPN

If you didn’t plan on dropping a ton of money on VPNs, NordVPN is a less expensive alternative with just as many features as ExpressVPN. It costs a low $107.55 for the three-year plan (which comes out to $2.99 a month) and $11.95 if you’re only paying for a single month. It offers AES 256-bit encryption and supports the major VPN protocols. There’s also an automatic kill switch.
NordVPN boasts 5,437 servers in 62 countries, which means it has more servers than ExpressVPN but in fewer countries. That’s great for most of us, but it’s bad if you’re in one of the countries that’s excluded from the list. Just to name a few examples: Kenya, Algeria, Egypt, and Guatemala are all missing from NordVPN, but they are available on ExpressVPN.
Still, there’s a lot to like about NordVPN. It’s based in Panama, which is another country that has no mandatory data retention policies. It can support six devices at a time, which is something to be considered if you’re planning to give your whole family (and perhaps some friends) access to your VPN subscription. A three-year $2.99-per-month plan for the whole family is, indeed, a bargain.
NordVPN also offers fast speeds in the US. When I tested servers in Taiwan and Germany, it performed worse than ExpressVPN on speed tests. (Since speed test results are based on so many variable factors, such as your internet connection, what provider is hosting the test, and the traffic at the moment, they’re not the best mark of performance.)

Other options

It’s always good to have options. Whether it’s to support the underdog or to have a back-up plan in case ExpressVPN or NordVPN ever vanishes, here are a few alternatives. Some of these are worthy contenders, while others sounded promising but turned out to have security issues. In addition, some VPNs initially dazzle with the number of servers and countries they’re in, but then they have other shortcomings that make them less appealing.

For one reason or another, these VPNs didn’t come out on top, but they may work for some users, depending on your needs. As I said, beyond this list, there are perhaps thousands of options in the app stores. But if you venture into the wilderness, you’re on your own.

GOOD STUFF

  • Some of the lowest prices at $2.91 to $6.95
  • Offers 3,335 servers
  • Can support up to five devices at once
  • Lists each server’s ping so you can optimize for speed
  • You can toggle between AES 128-bit or 256-bit, with the former being faster

BAD STUFF

  • Only in 33 countries, which leaves many parts of the world unserviced
  • Based in the US, so some users may remain wary despite the company’s assurances
