NBA bans racist L.A Clippers owner for life

Good move!...

Los Angeles Clippers‘ owner Donald Sterling has been banned from the National Basketball Association (NBA) for life, after the leaking of a racist recording ― scolding his girlfriend Stiviano for posting Instagram photos of her socializing with black people. He also implored her to not bring African-American guests to his games. (In case you missed it, read HERE!).

NBA commissioner Adam Silver made the announcement at a press conference, where it was revealed that Sterling has been banned from the association for life and will be fined $2.5million for his disturbing rant.

The 81 year old is barred from attending NBA games or practices, being present at any Clippers facility, or participating in any business or player personnel decisions involving the team. He's also barred from attending NBA board meetings or participating in any league activities.

Silver said he will try to force the controversial owner to sell his franchise, which he has owned since the 80's.

The commissioner said Sterling acknowledged he was the man on the tape, adding the views expressed by him are deeply offensive and harmful.

The $2.5 million fine will be donated to anti-discrimination and tolerance efforts.

Woman kills her child because he looked like her ex

Ana Rosa Mora (pictured above) has been arrested for killing her own new born because he looked like her ex-boyfriend. The 18-year-old wrapped her baby in a bag and left him outside to die because she feared the child looked like her ex-boyfriend and her current boyfriend would leave her.

The teen gave birth last weekend and attended school on Monday after allegedly committing the act and even showed staff members pictures of a newborn girl that she claimed she downloaded from the Internet.

But after employees noticed strange behavior - such as the girl asking if authorities could link her to the child through DNA and lying about the baby's age - they alerted authorities. She was arrested on April 25.

Check out footballer Dani Alves' greatest response to racism

The best way to combat racism.... treat the racist berk with complete disdain!

Barcelona defender Dani Alves responded to a racist taunt in the most incredible way during Sunday's game against Villareal at the Estadio El Madrigal.

As he was preparing to take a corner in the 75th minute, a banana was thrown at him in a racist taunt, but guess what happened?...... the Brazilian calmly picked it up, peeled it and ate it before proceeding to take a corner kick.

Alves had already played a key part in sparking his team's 3-2 comeback. I like the fact that he never let all that get to him. And after eating the banana he went ahead to give to crosses that resulted in goals.

Car bombs kill at least 56 in Iraq

A new wave of car bombs hit Shiite neighborhoods of Baghdad and a suicide bomber targeted soldiers in a northern city in attacks that killed at least 56 across Iraq on Sunday.

The bombs were placed in parked cars and detonated over a half-hour, targeted commercial areas and parking lots, killing 42.

The deadliest blast was in the southeastern Nahrwan district where two car bombs exploded simultaneously, killing seven and wounding 15 others. Two other explosions hit the northern Shaab and southern Abu Dshir neighborhoods, each of which killed six people. Other blasts hit the neighborhoods of Mashtal, Baladiyat and Ur in eastern Baghdad, the southwestern Bayaa and the northern Sab al-Bor and Hurriyah districts.

Coordinated bombing onslaughts killing scores of people have hit Iraq multiple times each month since April, feeding a spike in bloodshed that has left over 5,000 since April. The local branch of al-Qaida often takes responsibility, although there was no immediate claim for Sunday’s blasts.

Japanese digital eyes that can show your emotions

Can’t be bothered to show anyone what you’re thinking? Then a Japanese scientist has the answer — a pair of digital eyes that can express delight and anger, or even feign boredom.

Building on a long line of slightly wacky and not-very-practical inventions for which Japan is famous, Hirotaka Osawa has unveiled the “AgencyGlass”.

Osawa said he always wanted to build a system that is capable of carrying out social behaviours for humans.

Just as robots can reduce the need for physical labour, the AgencyGlass – which looks like two small TV screens set in spectacle frames — aims to cut down its user’s emotional demands by carrying out their eye movements for them.

Osawa, of the prestigious Tsukuba University, said possible applications include for flight attendants dealing with irritating passengers, or teachers who want to project an image of kindness towards shy students.

Moyes, 50, was dismissed at a meeting with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward at the club's Carrington training ground this morning, BBC reports.

Ryan Giggs has been named as interim manager . Now the big question is who's next?

Netherlands coach Louis Van Gaal, Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp, Atletico Madrid's manager Diego Simeone and Paris St-Germain's Laurent Blanc have already been tipped as possible successors.

The Forbes 5: The Hip-hop's wealthiest artists 2014

According to Forbes, Diddy, Dr Dre, Jay Z, Birdman and 50 cent are the richest Hip- hop artists in the world currently.

Diddy leads the pack with an estimated fortune of $700 million, an increase of $120 million over his net worth last year. The change comes largely from the addition of Revolt TV—the new, music-focused, multi-platform channel of which he’s the majority owner—to his already-hefty portfolio.

Diddy has plenty of competition in the race to $1 billion. His top challengers are Dr. Dre, who ranks second with $550 million. The former leapfrogged the latter on this year’s Forbes Five thanks to a large stake in Beats By Dr. Dre, which he cofounded with Interscope chief Jimmy Iovine in 2008.

Beats has a unique brand—it speaks to a nice young demographic, which is really interesting to marketers.

I do believe there are enough resources in our continent to take care of everyone. However, we will never take a bite out of poverty.

Imagine guests receiving customised gold plated iPhones at Nigerian president's daughter's wedding. Money is better used to help human lives in their own country. It could have been used for more impactful endeavors such as adding equipment in hospitals, schools, orphanage centres etc #JustSaying
