Tiger Jk about Tasha: “As soon as I saw her,I fell in love. I am reminded of an old wives’s tale where a red string is tied to a baby’s pinkie when he’s born. When we first met,I saw the red string on Mi Rae’s pinkie. That’s how we became each others destiny,strenght and family”

Merca is an ancient port city on the coast of southern Somalia, facing the Indian Ocean.
Known for its beautiful white sandy beaches and orange dunes, the city’s picturesque contrast of colors serves as an inspiration for local visual artists. Merca’s architectural heritage and beautiful pristine beaches are great for Somalia’s future tourism industry.

Roma receive a 50,000 euro (£42,000) fine after racist chants from their supporters halt their Serie A game against AC Milan.
Play in the 0-0 Serie A draw on Sunday was stopped for about two minutes after chants were aimed at Milan’s black players from the visiting fans.
AC Milan head coach Massimiliano Allegri called Italian football “a place for the uncivilised” afterwards.
In response to the ruling, Roma released a statement condemning the actions of their supporters.
It read: “This type of behaviour from any football supporters, including ours, is completely unacceptable. We are committed to facing this issue head-on to rid our sport of this problem and promote respect for all.”
The capital club were also warned they could play future league matches behind closed doors should the same events be repeated.
The game was brought to a temporary halt at the start of the second half and an announcement made to supporters ordering them to cease their behaviour before play was resumed.
Former Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli, ex-Portsmouth midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng and defender Kevin Constant were part of the Milan team, with the governing body of the Italian league’s judgement stating three unnamed players had been abused.
In January, a friendly between Milan and Pro Patria in January was suspended because of racist chants aimed at Boateng. In April, Juventus were fined 30,000 euros (£25,700) for their fans’ racist abuse of AC Milan players.
The Milan v Roma match marked the first time in Italian football where play had been temporarily halted and then re-started, but Allegri questioned the strength of the sanction.
“Stopping the game doesn’t work, it’s a happy medium and like all happy mediums, it doesn’t do anybody any good,” he said.
“Balotelli was defeated, he gave everything, but he is 22 and subjected more and more to racist chants. That doesn’t do him any good.”
Nineteen-year-old Tarikuwa Lemma is a survivor, of an international adoption scandal. When she was 13, she was effectively sold from her native Ethiopia to an American family. The corrupt “adoption agency” convinced her father, who was a widow, that Tarikuwa and her younger sisters were headed to the U.S. as part of an educational exchange program, and that they would return home every summer and on holiday breaks. Little did he know, his daughters had been placed with adoptive couples in the U.S., never to return. Tarikuwa’s name was changed against her will, and she was forbidden by her American “family” from speaking her native language. The issue of transnational adoption, its evangelical Christian component, and the exploitation of communities that sometimes results, is the subject of the book, The Child Catchers: Rescue, Trafficking and the New Gospel of Adoption by Kathryn Joyce, who appeared, along with Tarikuwa, on last Sunday’s “Melissa Harris Perry” show on MSNBC. Below is Tarikuwa’s satirical look at the “rescue” of children from her home country, to “better lives” in America.
