France Passes Law Requiring Supermarkets Give Unsold Foods To Charities Or Food Banks

France has become the first country in the world to ban supermarkets from throwing away or destroying unsold food, forcing them instead to donate it to charities and food banks.

Under a law passed unanimously by the French senate this week  large shops will no longer bin good quality food approaching its best-before date. Charities will be able to give out millions more free meals each year to people struggling to afford to eat.

The law follows a grassroots campaign in France by shoppers, anti-poverty campaigners and those opposed to food waste. The campaign, which led to a petition, was started by the councillor Arash Derambarsh. In December a bill on the issue passed through the national assembly, having been introduced by the former food industry minister Guillaume Garot.

Man Who Specializes In Killing Wives 12 Years After Marriage To Inherit Their Life Insurance Gets His Fingers Burnt

When Harold Henthorn’s first wife Lynn was killed in a tragic accident, which saw her crushed by the couple’s car, there was a rush of sympathy for the grieving widower. Despite there being no witnesses to the tragedy, no one questioned his version of events.

But 17 years later, when his second wife Toni plummeted to her death off a cliff , there was only disbelief. To lose one wife in a freak accident was tragic – to lose two was downright suspicious.

Both women had been killed during the 12th year of their marriage in freak accidents at remote scenes while alone with Harold. And if Toni’s death had been a fluke fall during a romantic hike, why did Harold have a map back in the car with an ‘X’ marking the exact spot where she died?

What Patrick Obahiagbon Said After Obasanjo Visited Ooni And Prostrated

The former president yesterday visited the new Ooni of Ife in his palace and prostrated on sighting the king in his palace. Many Nigerians have hailed his humility and Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon has also decided to say one or two words about it. You know we hardly understand what he says, lol, but then some genius might, lol. What he wrote on his Facebook page… Love me some Patrick! Lol

"The OKIKIOLAKAN's avuncular gesture of humility devoid of his De Die In Diem obtrusivity and obstreperousness is deservable of both eulogies and panegyrics and I am consensus ad idem with him that the Ooni of Ife is a non pareil epiphanic emblematization of an avatar seised of a sui generis Heirophantic mission. I wish this Ooni well and may the Celestial choir and Cosmic hosts grant him good health, peace profound, intrepidity, mental and spiritual discernment as he holds aloft his incandescent flambeau. God bless the Ooni."......

My Fame Came Naturally, No Jazz, Nothing, Ogogo Says

Veteran actor, Taiwo Hassan popularly known has Ogogo has once again reminded people that his fame came naturally from God because of the love he has for him and people should stop the rumours that he has been backing it with spiritual help. According to Ogogo, his fame has nothing to do with jazz, but simply GOD. Speaking on the rumours, he said

”This is a question that I myself don’t even know the answer; it is only God that knows that because it is the love of God. Some will get to stardom and within a year people will not remember them again. God loves us so much; it is now left to us to do the will of God. We should always try our best in any situation we find ourselves. My fame is natural, if it was to be sacramental, i am sure it must have faded out by now. I came to stardom in 1991, in 1992 I could no longer take public bus again and I was still working under water corporation as at that time, a cab will come and pick me at home in the morning and return me at night. So if God can still did it from then till now, common I am blessed with love,” he said.
