Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini said he would do “everything humanly possible” to secure Bibi’s safety in his country or in another European country.
Bibi, a 51-year-old farmhand, and a Pakistani Christian woman, was accused of blasphemy after a dispute with her fellow Muslim workers over her drinking water from the same cup as them.
They accused her of insulting the prophet Muhammad, a charge which she denied. But Bibi was convicted and sentenced to death in 2010.
But she was acquitted.
In a 56-page verdict issued after the ruling, the three-judge bench appeared to side with Bibi and have said that the case against the 51-year-old illiterate farmhand was built around her fellow Muslim workers, who appeared mad that she might drink from the same vessel as them.
She was ordered by a local landlord to bring water to the women on a day while they were picking berries.
Following her acquittal, extreme religious groups called for the deaths of the three Supreme Court judges who acquitted her.
They also called for a military revolt against army chief Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa.
Bibi is reported to be detained in an undisclosed but secure location inside Pakistan.
Bibi’s husband, Ashiq Masih, has appealed to the United Kingdom asking for asylum. He also tried asking for help from Canada and the United States.
The attorney who represented Bibi, Saif-ul-Mulook, is reported to be in fear for his life and is seeking asylum from the Netherlands as well…
Up for bid were holy unicorns riding in Santa’s Sleigh: Bald Monk, an extremely rare underground blend that collectors go crazy for; 1987 release of Booker’s; 1979 Ezra Brooks 15-year-old; and a bowling pin filled with Jim Beam.
Each ticket included a bottle of Willett Family Estate bourbon from a barrel specially selected for the event by The Bourbon Crusaders and Willett Master Distiller, Drew Kulsveen.
The Bourbon Crusaders’ American Cancer Society benefit, “Willett To Be Cured,” raised $340,000 to fight cancer after the famed Willett bourbon family patriarch, Even Kulsveen, was diagnosed with stage four Lymphoma.
The proceeds are supporting local Kentucky families fighting cancer and funding research to find a cure.
Chinese ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ star is going to give his entire fortune to charity.
He apparently, lives on about $102 (US dollars) / $800 (Hong Kong dollars) a month.
He stays frugal by taking public transportation and doing charity work instead of spending it on himself. He shops at discount clothing stores. He also had a Nokia phone for 17 years, and only upgraded to a smart phone recently, when his Nokia one stopped working.
He is giving his entire net worth, $5.6 billion Hong Kong Dollars (that’s $714 million USD) to charity.
What a great soul, and I hope that his money is properly used by the charity of his choice.
Australia is set tobe the first countryto eliminate cervical cancer, aided by its national vaccination and screening programs, says a new study.
An estimated 99.7% of cervical cancer is caused by infection with Human Papillomavirus (HPV), a network of viruses that spread though sexual intercourse and skin-to-skin contact around the genitals.
Australia was one of the first countries to introduce a national HPV vaccination program for girls in 2007, and it has since been extended to achieve high vaccination coverage across both sexes, according to the study. Its National Cervical Cancer Screening Program began in 1991.
In 2007, Australia was one of the first countries to introduce a national human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination program, and it has since achieved high vaccination coverage across both sexes. In December, 2017, organised cervical screening in Australia transitioned from cytology-based screening every 2 years for women aged from 18–20 years to 69 years, to primary HPV testing every 5 years for women aged 25–69 years and exit testing for women aged 70–74 years. We aimed to identify the earliest years in which the annual age-standardised incidence of cervical cancer in Australia (which is currently seven cases per 100 000 women) could decrease below two annual thresholds that could be considered to be potential elimination thresholds: a rare cancer threshold (six new cases per 100 000 women) or a lower threshold (four new cases per 100 000 women), since Australia is likely to be one of the first countries to reach these benchmarks.
The cancer could be classified as “rare” and not be in as many humans as early as 2022, meeting a threshold of six new cases per 100,000 and deaths due to the diseases are expected to decline to one new case per 100,000 women by 2034.
A new vending machine in Muncie, Indiana, isn’t a normal vending machine. This one has a purpose to serve more than human greed. Isn’t stocked with poisonous sodas and junk food. It dispenses winter basics like warm clothing, socks, and blankets, and instead of charging cash or credit cards, it gives away these items for free to the community.
The vending machine was set up outside the local fire department to service the up to 200 people without permanent homes in Delaware County, Indiana. If you or someone in need wants to utilize this, you or they have to first have to register with the charity organization Bridges Community Services.
There they are given free tokens that can be used to access the vending machine.
Every item currently in the Indiana vending machine was donated by a member of the community, and Bridges Community Services is still accepting donations. If you would like to help or donate, contact them now.
Customers buy every single doughnut at local Seal Beach doughnut shop in Orange County, California so that the owner the community has come to love can be with his sick wife.
Chhan and his wife, Stella, have owned Donut City for three decades. The couple came to Orange County as refugees from Cambodia in 1979. Since then, they have worked side by side every single morning to serve locals delicious doughnuts at their loved doughnut shop – until recently.
Customers who have dearly missed Stella Chhan’s presence behind the counter serving them doughnuts every morning were shocked to discover that she had suffered from a terrible aneurysm. Thank God, she’s survived, but has become weak and in rehab, and her soulmate, John Chhan rushes home every day to be with her as soon as the shop sells out of doughnuts.
John Chhan has declined customers’ requests to to set up a GoFundMe account for the couple, saying he really just wants more time with his wife. So, instead, local customers have decided to help Donut City sell out early every single day so that he can return to the rehabilitation center where she is recovering.
“She can talk, she can write,” Chhan said to local press of his wife’s progress. “Right now she’s trying to start…eat something.”
His name is Dalton Shaffer and he drove from Battle Creek, Michigan to Indianapolis, Indiana (450 miles round trip) to deliver a pizza from a pizza place in Michigan that doesn’t even deliver.
“I am beyond overwhelmed and humbled by this act of genuine kindness. Dalton brought our family so much joy – and the best pizza in the world – at a really difficult time. While ‘thank you’ hardly seems adequate – from the bottom of my heart, thank you, Dalton from Steve’s Pizza in Battle Creek, MI for making your epic middle of the night pizza delivery!” Julie Morgan wrote on Facebook, posting a photo of two slices of pizza.
For Julie Morgan and Rich Morgan of Indianapolis, it was the nice gesture that came with two pizzas delivered from their favorite pizzeria soon after they learned that Rich would enter hospice care, that made their day.
Though money was tight, Rich would bring home a pizza from Steve’s Pizza every payday, she said.
The couple planned to getaway to Michigan and to grab some of their favorite pizza from Steve’s Pizza in Battle Creek was interrupted by a trip to the ICU, where they learned Rich’s battle with cancer was coming to an end, she wrote on Facebook.
