The food processing company Heinz had some trouble when a video from one of their ketchup factories went viral.

Apparently, a few Muslims decided to ignore processing policies and toss a bunch of rotten tomatoes into a processing machine. Not only that, they were caught stepping on top of tomatoes that eventually got tossed into the machine as well.

Understandably, consumers were highly upset after watching the Muslims put garbage into a machine that would eventually produce countless bottles of ketchup to be distributed across several countries.

The incident allegedly took place just outside of Cairo, Egypt, where Heinz owns and operates a factory to distribute their world-renowned ketchup.

Unfortunately for Heinz, it seems that at least one employee knew that what was happening in their plant was wrong and decided to not only capture video of the matter but snap a few photos as well. Since then, it has been brought to light that the Muslims in the plant either didn’t want to waste the time it would take to discard several containers full of rotten tomatoes or were ordered by management not to throw them away.

After the public backlash, Heinz was eventually forced to make a statement in which they tried to explain away the incident. Saying that the “edited” video gave an “unreal picture,” the company then went on to insist that they are “100 percent committed to quality.”…..(…..)





10000 People Gathered Around The Lake, 10 Minutes Later Everyone Was Shocked…

Posted in 2017 with tags , , , on November 30, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

Built among boulders in the dry and arid Dogon county in Mali, at the foot of an incredible 500 meter high escarpment, lies a small village called Bamba.

Everything here is parched as the dry season reaches its peak, leaving only one sacred pond full of catfish.

Every year, an ancient fishing ritual called Antogo is carried out in the lake – a spectacle that is worth seeing. Fishing in the lake is strictly prohibited throughout the year, but the day Antogo is celebrated, hundreds of men jump into the lake grabbing fishes with their bare hands. The frenzy lasts for only about 15 minutes. The intensity of the moment is extreme, huge, and overwhelming…..(….)


“Sophia” is a humanoid robot designed by Hong Kong firm & granted citizenship in Saudi Arabia (!?); ‘she’ says ‘she’ would like to start a ‘FAMILY’!

  • Sophia is a lifelike robot designed by Hong Kong firm, Hanson Robotics
  • During an interview this week, she said that family is ‘a really important thing’
  • She even went so far as to say that she would name her first daughter Sophia
  • The interview comes a month after the robot was controversially granted citizenship in Saudi Arabia

Not everyone is happy with the Sophia’s citizenship, with some describing her as ‘bizarre’ and others referring to it as ‘Terminator in real time.’

Others have pointed out that Sophia has ‘more rights than women in Saudi Arabia’.

Saudia Arabia is one of the world’s most oppressive states for women, and only last month lifted a ban on female drivers.

After hearing her appearance, the Arabic hashtag #Sophia_calls_for_dropping_guardianship began trending.

The Saudi guardianship system means every woman must have a male companion with her in public at all times. 

This is usually a family member, who also has authority to act on her behalf.

‘Sophia has no guardian, doesn’t wear an abaya or cover up – how come?’ one Twitter user wrote.

Over the past 15 years or so, several giant gel balls have been found by divers off the coast of Norway.

The balls, about 3 feet (1 meter) wide, remain a mystery to scientists. But the number of ball sightings has been increasing.

Professor Gro van der Meeren at the Institute of Marine Research in Nordnes, Norway, is one of the lead researchers trying to gather more information about the balls.

Due to recent attention in local media, van der Meeren has received more photos of the balls from divers.(….)
