He arrives at his friend’s wedding with his 6 pregnant girlfriends

Nigeria.- In Nigeria, a man attended his friend’s wedding and caused outrage for a “small” detail.

Mike Eze-Nwalie Nwogu attended the wedding of the Nollywood actor -Williams Uchemba-, with his six girlfriends who were pregnant with him.

In social networks this act was strongly criticized, because for some it was a matter of showing off their machismo, while for others it was an act of taking the spotlight. Eze-Nwalie Nwogu, also known as Pretty Mike, managed to turn heads on social media by attending his friend’s wedding with all the pregnant brides.

He came dressed in a pink suit, accompanied by all his partners who wore silver suits.

Through his Instagram account, Mike shared a video in which they all appear together. In the clip, the man kisses the tummies of all the women who, he indicated, expect children from him.

“PM and his six Baby Mothers … no movie catch, we’re just living our best life. #ABetterTime #HappyHome #Familyiseverything #babybum,” he wrote to describe the video.

Although the publication was intended to celebrate the event, it actually elicited different opinions.

While for some the man wanted to attract attention, for others he showed his machismo by trying to presume that he has several women – as property.

Venezuela has resumed direct oil supplies to China, which had been carried out underground for over a year due to US sanctions. This is reported by Reuters with reference to data from the analytical company Refinitiv Eikon and the documentation of the Venezuelan state oil and gas company PDVSA.

According to the agency, the Chinese National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) and oil and gas giant PetroChina, which have long been among PDVSA’s main clients, have stopped taking oil from Venezuelan ports since August last year. This came after Washington extended sanctions on Caracas, threatening trouble for any company trading with PDVSA. In this regard, according to Reuters, PDVSA clients have increased shipments to Malaysia, where transshipment of cargo between ships at sea has allowed most of the Venezuelan crude oil to continue to flow to China through resellers.

Then the tanker Kyoto was discovered by the shipping monitoring service Tanker Trackers during the loading of 1.8 million barrels. heavy oil in the Venezuelan port of Jose. Kyoto, according to internal PDVSA filings, chartered by Wanneng Munay, unloaded at China’s Dalian oil terminal in early November after traveling most of the way with the transponder turned off (Refinitiv Eikon data).

As the agency notes, Wanneng Munay is one of more than a dozen companies registered in Russia that have become PDVSA’s clients in recent months, but had no prior experience in oil trading.

“Shameful”: Mauricio Macri’s strong repudiation of a note that linked Soledad Acuña with a Nazi criminal

Former President Mauricio Macri, other opposition leaders and the Delegation of Argentine Israelite Associations (DAIA) questioned this Sunday a journalistic note that was published in the newspaper Página / 12 that relates the Buenos Aires Minister of Education, Soledad Acuña, with the Nazi hierarch Erich Priebke.

The note that reached the cover of the newspaper bears the title “Bad Education” and puts the focus on the German Bariloche Primo Caprano school that Acuña attended, and which for years was led by the former captain of the SS Central Security Office.

Shameful. This cover and this story have nothing to do with journalism and harm democracy, “the former president wrote on his Twitter account and added his” solidarity and support for the minister. ”

From the DAIA they warned in a statement that the article “is intended to associate his speech (that of Soledad Acuña) with his schooling at the German School in Bariloche, run by a cultural association to which Priebke belonged.”

“When we read the title, the news impacts in a way, but when reading the note, everything is forced. It’s wrong to twist interpretations. It is wrong to force arguments. It is wrong because if those efforts are needed to found positions we empty ourselves of foundations, “they questioned.

And they remarked that what the minister said about teachers in recent days “may not like it, or for others it may be adjusted, but we will not equip or force these wild duels between some using the ‘Nazi’ for everything.”

The head of the Buenos Aires government, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, also expressed himself on Twitter: “I always defend and will defend freedom of expression and the exchange of ideas. But democratic politics has nothing to do with personal and fallacious attacks.”

“All my support and that of our team for Soledad Acuña, a minister whose only priority is to provide more and better education for all the boys and girls of the City of Buenos Aires,” he remarked.

For her part, the president of PRO and former Minister of Security, Patricia Bullrich, considered that the objective of the note “is to feed the story to deepen the division of Argentines” and added that “the cover of Page 12 offends not only the minister, but all Argentines. “

“You cannot build a future with violence and indoctrination. It would be good for the ruling party to repudiate these practices,” he emphasized in the message he posted on Twitter.

The deputy head of the Buenos Aires Government, Diego Santilli, also added to the criticism, who argued that “linking Acuña with one of the saddest and most tragic stages in history is unacceptable.”

“My total repudiation of this forced accusation, which does not build and affects who I consider a great person, an excellent civil servant and responsible for an impeccable management,” he said.

It was not the only voice of the City that joined in the repudiation of the Pagina / 12 note. The Chief of Staff, Felipe Miguel, made a count of the works that Acuña carried out during his tenure. “54 new public schools, 9 thousand new vacancies, 8 Educational Poles, Secondary School of the Future, Digital Education from room 5”, he listed. And then he gave strong support to the Buenos Aires Minister of Education. “While some are in charge of reinventing the past, in the City we are in charge of building the future. All my support and support for @Soledad_Acunia,” he closed.

Meanwhile, the president of the ARI Civic Coalition, Maximiliano Ferraro, described it as “regrettable and sad cover of Page 12”, at the same time that he thought that the note “trivializes Nazism” from “a fascist and reprehensible attitude that they hide under freedom of expression and information “.

“We repudiate the cover of Página 12, an offense not only to the minister but to all Argentines,” added Deputy Graciela Ocaña.

This note comes after the strong controversy generated by statements by Acuña that went viral on social networks, in which he called to “report” when there are acts of “indoctrination” in schools.

“The root of what is over-ideologized and political militancy in the classrooms is in teacher training, it is in how we teach what a teacher is, in the profile that is defined on what it is to be a teacher,” the Buenos Aires Minister of Education had stated in a talk he had with the politician and journalist Fernando Iglesias.

The Irish Ministry of Health has recommended that farmers destroy the mink population in order to exclude the possibility of mutation of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes coronavirus infection.

The ministry said that during testing in the country not a single case of infection of minks with COVID-19 was detected, but breeding animals in a pandemic “is a constant risk.”

There are only three mink farms in Ireland – in the counties of Leesh, Kerry and Donegal, radio station RTE notes. According to her, in the near future there are no plans to implement the decision on the destruction of animals, but the farm owners have already received a warning from the Ministry of Health.

Farmers believe that the authorities want to destroy healthy animals “without providing any scientific or legal basis” and this decision will leave the owners of animal farms without a livelihood. “The Irish government builds on Denmark’s recent decision to eliminate all animals on farms, but overlooks that it was based on a rapid increase in the number of infections on farms,” they point out.

TEST of Sackboy: A Big Adventure, the cute game from Sony that targets young players

Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a production that accompanies the release of the PS5, but which also sees the light of day on PS4. Our little woolen hero leaves his supercharged universe, where personalization is king, and introduces us to a whole new colorful world. We spent several hours with this endearing little character, it’s time to give you our impressions. So, verdict?

It’s cute, but don’t expect a visual slap.

Sackboy A Big Adventure 26 10 2020 screenshot 2So as not to change, let’s start with the point that jumps out at the outset, the graphics. Let’s not beat around the bush it’s very simplistic, whether on PS5 and PS4. The developers recovered the visuals from the LittleBigPlanet to design 3D levels. Sure, it’s cute, but don’t expect a jaw-breaking visual snap. However, the settings are varied, we go through small cardboard towns, fabric forests and other offbeat environments giving a “toy” aspect to the image. On PS5, note that the title is slightly thinner, but honestly, we haven’t seen any big, big differences with the PS4 version.

In addition, we have quality French dubbing that captures attention. The soundtrack is always so fun and upbeat. In addition, the team included well-known music, such as Uptown Funk, to titillate the esgourdes and it goes pretty well. And the sound effects in all of this? We find exactly the funny little noises of LittleBigPlanet. In short, concerning all this part, the ears feast everywhere.

Sackboy A Big Adventure 26 10 2020 screenshot 1About the story, the player discovers the village Creaville, a peaceful place where Sackripans make their little life. One day the great, the mighty and the vile Vex has landed in the area and captures the inhabitants with his enormous vacuum cleaner. His goal ? Become the king of the world! Sackboy, our protagonist, manages to escape and will try to thwart the plans of this evil being. Let’s put it bluntly, there’s a bad guy, you’re the good guy, you’re going to save the world, period. The scenario is very basic and is enough to stage this odyssey. So we go through five big worlds made up of levels. You have to collect a certain number of orbs to be able to start the fight against the final boss. But to put it simply and get to the end of the tunnel, count around 7 hours. However, you can increase this lifespan slightly if you feel like getting each bonus.

There is one point that bothers us, Sackboy: A Big Adventure is too easy. At what point ? To give you an example, enemies jump on us and hit us without inflicting damage on us; yes, yes, you read that correctly. They have a kind of attack … delayed, to give the player time to act. As you will have understood, with its ultra accessible side, this production mainly targets children.

Besides, let’s talk little, let’s talk well, the handling is very accessible. We can perform basic actions like jumping, hitting or even rolling. The courses are not taken head, it is enough to always go straight ahead, to collect the orbs, or even the outfits (because yes, we can change our look). The title is inspired by various licenses that have marked the generations (the Super Mario or the Crash Bandicoot) to bring a little diversity: objects to help us, chases, etc. The goal: to avoid boredom. Another very nice point, if your little one cannot cross a world, it is possible to take a controller and play locally in cooperation. Quickly, concerning the functionalities related to the DualSense, the triggers adapt and exert a very, very light force during an action; certainly not to tire the fingers of toddlers. As for the vibrations, they are pleasant and tickle the hands.

Sackboy A Big Adventure test impressions verdict note (1)

Sackboy: A Big Adventure is a big copy and paste of what is best done elsewhere to bring to the line-up from the PS5 a title oriented for children. Honestly, we wouldn’t have been against a slightly higher difficulty, or having the option to change it in the settings. The adventure is, of course, cute and colorful, but too easy. When done, it’s the kind of game that ends up in a corner and slowly collects dust.

Most

  • Pleasant artistic direction
  • Quality dubbing that captures attention
  • Play cooperatively
  • Varied worlds to avoid boredom

The lessers

  • It’s too, too simple.
  • The enemies … and the bosses too …
  • Boredom quickly shows the tip of its nose for adults

Russian investors preferred cryptocurrencies to gold :: Economy :: RBC

Russian banks have increased gold reserves to a new historical record

A quarter of all Russian investments are purchased online, and investments in cryptocurrencies dominate the Internet, experts say.

Read on RBC Pro

Investment gold is a 999.9 purity metal that cannot be used in jewelry. The largest buyer of investment gold is the Central Bank, which purchases the metal to replenish its reserves. Since April 1, the Bank of Russia suspended purchases of gold in reserves, after which gold exports from Russia increased sharply.

Benefits and barriers

Gold is considered a safe and reliable asset: 75% of investors surveyed in Russia answered that gold will never lose its value, two-thirds (68%) perceive it as protection against inflation and currency fluctuations, and more than half (52%) trust this metal more than currencies of other countries (multiple answers could be selected).

  • Only 16% of respondents said they own gold. Investors aged 25–34 show the greatest interest in it: 17% of them said that they have invested in gold in the last 12 months, and 27% said that they will definitely invest in gold in the future.

  • 79% of retail investors are considering investing in gold in the future.

  • 57% of those surveyed admit this possibility, although they have never invested in gold before.

Among the main barriers to investing in gold, the respondents indicated a lack of information (64%) and the risk of buying fakes (23%). In June, a law on increasing control over the circulation of gold came into force in Russia. This will increase market transparency and unify standards for analysis and trading, the World Gold Council calculates.

Senators propose a way to lower prices for gold bars for Russians

The main barrier to the growth of investment in gold in Russia is the high value added tax (VAT) on gold bars. The rate of 20% is the highest rate in the world, commented Tatyana Fitz, director of state policy and relations with central banks of the WGC. In many countries, investment gold is not subject to VAT. Banks sell bullion to individuals with VAT, and buy from individuals without VAT. Therefore, the most popular product is coins that are not subject to VAT.

The initiative to abolish VAT on gold bars has been discussed for several years. In January, the government did not support the corresponding bill of the group of senators. RBC sent a request to the Ministry of Finance.

Gold prices

The cost of gold against the background of the pandemic was growing for the main part of 2020: from $ 1,560 per ounce in January and to more than $ 2,000 in early August. In the last month, the precious metal has traded in the range of $ 1863.6 to $ 1936. On October 19, gold was valued at $ 1907.7 an ounce.

Alfa-Bank predicted that gold prices will remain in the range of $ 1,800-2,200 per ounce until the US presidential elections on November 3. According to Goldman Sachs summer forecast, gold prices will rise to $ 2,300 per ounce over the next year.

Economic problems in the country and in the world can stimulate the growth of investments in gold, the authors of the WGC report believe. According to analysts, gold is the main defensive asset in times of political or economic uncertainty. The growth in the cost of gold is influenced by the stimulating measures of central banks, low interest rates, a possible drop in gold production at the end of 2020 due to quarantine, a difficult geopolitical situation and uncertainty with the presidential elections in the United States.

The rain factor breaks into the unpredictable World Cup

Le Mans received the Motorcycle World Championship with good weather forecasts for the cold and rainy weather for the first day of practice for the French Grand Prix. A cocktail that puts drivers and teams in tension, busy making the tires work properly in adverse conditions in which the most experts in this type of driving also tend to appear.

Michelin in MotoGP gave a competitive material to its ‘clients’, which left a strange day only because of the presence of water, not exaggerated due to its potential danger. Dunlop, on the contrary, turned into a lottery especially the first morning session of Moto2 and Moto3, in which the falls were the protagonists. And in part the two free practice in the afternoon, especially due to the accident that caused the second free practice of the intermediate class to have to stop, an incident of importance when the leader of the category, Luca Marini, was involved. The Italian had to be transferred to a hospital in Le Mans after hitting the asphalt hard, although fortunately for his aspirations as a solid Moto2 leader (20 points ahead of the second, Enea Bastianini) the suspicion that suffered a fracture in the malleolus of his left leg.

“It was only the second lap and I think that on the left the tire was not yet in temperature, so it was a mistake that caused a very ugly crash”, analyzed his brother, Valentino Rossi, about a blow that could affect him when competing, being the foot of change. In the late afternoon at Le Mans they were working on widening the boot to minimize physical damage.

Marini’s was one of the most notable incidents of the more than 40 with which the day ended (in the morning between Moto2 and Moto3 they added 29), on a day in which there was no crash in MotoGP in the first free practice , and just four in the second, this one with the track already drying and in which Jack Miller returned to take his art when the conditions were complicated. The Australian was the first to dare to mount the dry tires with the track still with water, and he was the one who ended up leading a times table that should be more provisional than usual if the forecasts for a cold Saturday are met but dry.

“Today has been a useful day to see how the new motorcycle performs in water, because we had not done any training in these conditions yet,” explained Maverick Viñales, second and the best of the Spanish at Le Mans, at the end of the day. “In principle tomorrow the conditions will change, but knowing that the bike has worked in these mixed conditions, I think there should be no problems in the dry,” said the one from Roses (Girona) on a weekend important to his aspirations to the title and in the one that will have to cut part of the advantage that the first two of the general, Fabio Quartararo, who finished eleventh, and Joan Mir, ninth and within the top ten.

“These conditions are complicated and it’s a bit of a lottery,” said the Suzuki man about a first day in which Álex Márquez (sixth, with the other two Honda ahead, on the best day in a long time for the Japanese house) ) and Pol Espargaró slipped into those ten fastest. “It is clear that you have to have a head, but not because we are playing something, but because tomorrow should be dry and these times today would be useless,” added Mir. In any case, problems with the weather can be a constant at the end of the 2020 season, all caused by an exceptional calendar that will last almost until the end of November (the last test will be held on the 22nd of that month in Portimao, Portugal ) and in which the French test has had to be located five months later than usual.

«Normally there is a limit of the asphalt in the 20 degrees. When he’s 20 or older you can ride full throttle and push, and it’s easier for the rider. But when you go below 20 degrees it becomes dangerous because it is difficult to put the smooth MotoGP tire, which is quite hard, at the correct temperature to run, “analyzed Rossi on the factor that can determine the future of this Grand Prix from France.
