Entertainment Ghost's Friday News Bits! 10-01-2014

It's Friday! And here are the Friday News Bits of this week!

Samsung Galaxy S5 Coming This April

Samsung has announced that it will release the Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone by April this year. It will also be accompanied by a new wearable gadget that will be the Galaxy Gear(watch)'s successor, which will be "with more advanced functions, and the bulky design will also be improved".

The major new feature for the phone, which could perhaps be expected as a(or one of the) selling point(s) for the Samsung Galaxy S5 is a new Eye-Scanning technology. However, Samsung is currently only "studying" this technology, and cannot say whether it will have the technology on the S5 or not.

It is also said to feature a new design as the Galaxy S4 was rather similar to Galaxy S3 and the "consumers couldn't really feel much difference". The display and the physical appearance is said to be changed. Specifications are not out yet, so we would have to wait further for that.

19 Year Old Teenager Slices His 'Private' Part Off

A 19 year old student in UK, believed to have taken the mephedrone drug, stabbed his 46 year old mother and then cut his 'private' part off and then was found hanging in the window with blood flowing from his groin by emergency services which were called by his terrified mother. They were rushed to the hospital and are now reported to be in a stable condition.

Former Canadian Defence Minister Claims Aliens Walk Among Us

Former Canadian defence minister states on Russian TV that there are 80 different specifies of aliens and aliens have been visiting our planet for "thousands of years". Paul Hellyer, who is now 90 years old, has declared that aliens are unimpressed with the way of living of mankind. He also states that some of the aliens "look just like us and they could walk down the street and you wouldn’t know if you walked past one". He speaks that the aliens are "concerned":

We have a long history of UFOs and of course there has been a lot more activity in the last few decades since we invented the atomic bomb, they are very concerned about that and that we might use it again, because the whole cosmos as a unity, and it affects not just us but other people in the cosmos, they are very much afraid that we might be stupid enough to start using atomic weapons again.
Paul Hellyer has described several kinds of aliens including which include:

  • Tall Whites: who are working with the U.S. air force in Nevada. "They’re able to get away with that; they had a couple of their ladies dressed as nuns go into Las Vegas to shop and they weren’t detected". 
  • Short Greys: who have very slim arms and legs and are about five feet high with large heads. 
  • Nordic Blondes: if you meet one you’d probably say, 'I wonder if she’s from Denmark or somewhere.'
Paul Hellyer said he never met an alien, however, he claims that he has seen a UFO near his cabin on Ontario’s Lake Muskoka. He also tells of how they wont share their technology with us and are trying to teach us how to live, and how we are unimpressive.

Almost sounds like the aliens are Shantel from "Citizen of Planet Paprika", doesn't it?

Facebook's Sponsored Ads Will Be Removed On April 9th

Facebook has just announced on their developers' Platform Roadmap that they will be removing the 'Sponsored Stories' from Facebook on April 9th this year. Yes, those annoying ads that would tell a guy with perfectly fine hair to fight hairfall, or how a 15 year old kid would randomly see articles on a happy sex life. Although they are mostly made up on your actions, which Facebook sent to sponsors to advertise to your interests, but they didn't really make any sense most of the times.

The Toyota i-Road

Tyota has been showing off their new i-Road project at the CES 2014. This electric car which appears to be inspired by an Asian Rikshaw, runs on 3 wheels(one in the back and two in the front, because two in the back are too mainstream) and has two seats only and uses the Active Lean technology. The car is "2.78 feet wide by 7.7-feet long, as well as 4.74-feet tall and with a wheelbase of 5.57-feet". The car does not require any "specialized driving skills".

Kenyan Man Declared Dead, Wakes Up In The Morgue After 24 Hours

A Kenyan man called Paul Mutora, was declared dead. After 24 hours of his 'death', he woke up in the morgue which scared everyone off at first and they ran away. Paul had attempted to kill himself by swallowing insecticide which he now calls "a mistake from the start and I apologise to my father" and was pronounced dead on Wednesday. The authorities have launched an investigation on the matter, as to how he was pronounced dead. Dr Joseph Mburu, the superintendent in charge of Naivasha District Hospital has stated "This might have confused medical personnel, but the victim was saved before he could be embalmed".
