Photos: Obama visits Senegal

Obamas at the 'Door of No Return': First Family makes emotional trip to former slaving port in Senegal from where captives were shipped to America - never to see their homeland again

President Barack Obama has spent the afternoon touring a Senegalese island where Africans were shipped across the Atlantic into slavery and he called the visit a 'very powerful moment.' 

Obama says visiting Goree Island Thursday with his family helps them fully appreciate the magnitude of the slave trade. They toured the museum at the Maison des Esclaves where slaves were gathered before going through the 'Door of No Return' and being forced onto ships bound for North America.

Obama also said that, as an African American and an African-American president, the trip gaves him even greater motivation to stand up for human rights around the world, and the visit came just hours after he clashed with his Senegalese hosts over gay rights. 

He said the island is a reminder of what happens when civil rights are not protected.

Kim & Kanye set a trap for their friends by distributing fake baby pics

Kanye and Kim set a trap for their friends to see which one would sell a picture of their new baby. According to TMZ, they received a photo purportedly of North West but when they checked with Kim's camp to see if it was the real baby pic, they discovered they had received one of several decoy photos distributed by the couple.

TMZ reports:
Someone has been trying to sell this baby pic for a lot of $$ -- allegedly the spawn of KimKardashian and Kanye West. But sources connected with the couple tell TMZ, it's a fraud!

So here's what we're being told. Kim felt people in her world were going to hawk baby photos, so she wanted to catch the culprits quickly. We're told Kim hatched a plan and sent a half-dozen of her "friends" pictures of a baby she claimed was North West -- but we're told it was an impostor infant.
Sure enough ... someone came along and tried selling us this pic (above). Gotta say ... it looks like it could be Kim and Kanye's baby. It has the right ... well, you know ... but Kim would obviously pick a pic of an impostor baby that had the qualities of her own child.

Our K & K sources have seen the pic and claim it's not the real deal.

By the way ... we also got hold of another pic of a baby Kim sent to several other friends -- Bogus Baby #2. We're told she's waiting to see if someone tries to sell this one as well.

Woman flaunts 16-inch waist which she achieved by wearing corsets for 3 years

24 year old Berliner Michele Kobke found a new way of achieving the shape she wants, by wearing a corset every single day for the last three years. She went from a waist 25 to a waist 16 after wearing the corset continuously even while eating, sleeping, and swimming.

Kobke told The Daily News.
My dream waist is 15 inches, she said. That would represent a world record for an adult, currently held by Connecticut woman Cathie Jung.
Even as she closes in on her “dream” waist, Kobke admits there are health concerns with such a passion. A doctor already diagnosed her with some muscle atrophy from wearing the fashion piece 24 hours a day.
I can’t imagine to just stop one day.The corsets have become an important part of my life. I just can’t imagine.
But aside even from the medical risks, Kobke has had a falling out with family members, who don't agree with the extreme measures she takes for beauty.
My family’s reaction to my tight lacing regimen is quite negative,she told the German TV station. They say that I spoil my body. But I would say that smoking and drinking alcohol are actually much worse for you, so corsets may not be healthy, but also not really unhealthy.
