Entertainment Ghost's Friday News Bits! 11-04-2014

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

Mother and Son Commit Suicide After Having An Argument Over League of Legends

In China, a 16 year old boy from Guangyuan in the Sichuan province headed straight to a local gaming cafe after school. The boy was an avid player of League of Legends. He did not return home by the evening, which worried his mother and she started searching every gaming cafe she could find and eventually found him. A loud argument broke out between the boy and his mother, in which his mother stated that:
You go online and I can’t control you, so I’ll just go die!

The mother then dragged her son to the banks of the nearby Jialing river and called her husband to tell him that she was going to kill herself. She walked out into the river and was quickly caught by the current, getting dragged under, with her son's attempts to save her in vain.

Then the father arrived and scolded and kicked his son. The son also plunged into the river himself, like his mother did. The father cried out and stated:
I also don’t want to live, I will go with you

But he was saved by cops before he could suicide like his wife and son did.

The mother and the son haven't been seen since and have been presumed dead. It is unknown what exactly led them to suicide, but it began with an argument over League of Legends. Although this is absolutely nothing to blame video games for, this will not stop the anti-gaming community to blame it on video games.

The Ultimate Warrior Dies At The Age of 54

Iconic and legendary WWE wrestler, the Ultimate Warrior, has passed away at the age of 54.

Days before his death, he had appeared on the "Monday Night RAW" event of WWE, where he gave a speech that people believe to have foreshadowed his own death. His speech was:
No WWE talent becomes a legend on their own. Every man's heart one day beats its final beat; his lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit will be immortalized by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory. You are the legend-makers of Ultimate Warrior.

Mr. Hellwig, who had legally changed his name to Warrior and went by the ring-name Ultimate Warrior, was one of the most influential and popular WWE stars of his career days. His career was 15 years long, spanning from 1985 to 98, with his most memorable years in the career being from 1987 to 91. His victory against Hulk Hogan on the Wrestlemania VI, becoming the WWE Champion is one of the most memorable matches in the history of Pro Wrestling.

WWE announced his death in a statement, with no cause of death revealed. The statement was:
WWE is shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the passing of one of the most iconic WWE Superstars ever, The Ultimate Warrior. Warrior began his WWE career in 1987 and quickly went on to become one of the biggest stars in WWE history. Warrior became WWE Champion at WrestleMania VI, defeating Hulk Hogan in an epic encounter. We are grateful that just days ago, Warrior had the opportunity to take his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame and was also able to appear at WrestleMania 30 and Monday Night Raw to address his legions of fans. WWE sends its sincere condolences to Warrior’s family, friends and fans. Warrior was 54 and is survived by his wife Dana and his two daughters.

The Ultimate Warrior had recently been added into the Hall of Fame. After his death, many WWE personalities paid their condolences, such as Paul Heyman, Tripple H, Hulk Hogan, Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Chris Jericho, and others. Fans are also very saddened by his loss and have mourned his death.

Woman Attempted To Be Robbed While Talking About The Crime Rate on Live TV in Brazil

A Brazillian woman nearly got robbed on live TV in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The woman, ironically, was giving an interview about the high crime rate and the lack of police in the area, when a thief appeared out of nowhere and attempted to snatch the woman's gold necklace.

However, as he grabbed it and tried to pull it off, it broke and fell, leaving him empty handed as he ran across the road in the on-coming traffic, while a member of the camera crew of the RJTV news-channel who were interviewing the woman tried to give him chase but failed due to the thief's high speed.

Samsung Galaxy S5 and New Gear Devices Are Ready To Hit The Market

Samsung has officially announced that the Samsung Galaxy S5 and several new Samsung Gear devices: Samsung Gear 2, Samsung Gear 2 Neo, and Samsung Gear Fit are ready to be available in 125 countries in Europe, Middle East, North America, Latin America, and most of Asia!

The CEO & President of IT & Mobile Communications Divisions at Samsung Electronics, JK Shin, has stated that:
The refined design and technological innovation of our new Galaxy S5 and Samsung Gear devices are the direct result of Samsung listening carefully to what consumers wanted in the next generation of mobile technology. We carefully crafted each device to offer a sophisticated, superior mobile experience that let consumers stay connected in their own way to focus on what really matters to them.

Facebook Is Removing Messaging From The iOS and Android App, Forcing Users To Use The Messenger

Facebook is removing the messaging feature from it's iOS and Android app, forcing users to use the Messenger app for messaging/chating with their Facebook friends. In certain European countries, users are already starting to see notifications that over the next few weeks they will have to install the Messenger app in order to continue sending and receiving Facebook messages on their smartphones.

A Facebook spokesperson told TheNextWeb that the company has found that the users get 20% faster replies on the Messenger app than on the normal Facebook app. He added that:
We have built a fast and reliable messaging experience through Messenger and now it makes sense for us to focus all our energy and resources on that experience. From this week onwards, more people will be notified of the change. Facebook will be removing the messaging feature from its Android and iOS apps in "a handful of countries" over the next couple of weeks. People will have several notices before this change takes place and will have opportunities to learn more about Messenger and its features.

According to TheNextWeb, the change wont affect low-end Android devices with memory constraints, which would allow them to chat with the normal Facebook app without having to download the Messenger app. The iPad Facebook app will also keep the messaging feature as well. Whether people accept the idea of having two Facebook apps for the full usage, is yet to be seen.

Woman Throws A Shoe At Hillary Clinton During Her Speech In Las Vegas

During her speech in Las Vegas on a stage, a woman threw a shoe at Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton ducked and dodged the shoe, and then joked about it saying:
Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque de Soleil?

People in the audience laughed and applauded at Hillary Clinton's joke and she continued saying:
My goodness, I didn't know that solid waste management was so controversial. Thank goodness she didn't play softball like I did.

After the woman threw the shoe, she was quickly arrested. She admitted to throwing the shoe, however, did not tell why she did it. U.S. Secret Service supervisory special agent Brian Spellacy said the woman was being questioned and would face criminal charges. According to FoxNews, an attendee handed a piece of paper to a reporter that was apparently thrown by the woman, which was a copy of a Department of Defense document labelled confidential and dated August 1967, referring to an operation "Cynthia" in Bolivia.

The incident is similar to what happened in December 2008 in a news conference in Baghdad, when two shoes were thrown at former President George W. Bush, both which he dodged.
