Hi guys,did you miss me ? 🙂 So I just want to share this Awesome story .
Meet this inspiring young lady called Lizzie Velasquez.
Lizzie Velasquez has been called “The World’s Ugliest Woman” by some people (especially online). Born with a medical condition so rare that just two other people in the world are thought to have it, Lizzie Velasquez has zero percent body fat and weighs just 60 pounds (27kg). She has no adipose tissue and cannot create muscle, store energy, or gain weight.
Lizzie Velasquez was born in San Antonio, Texas,four weeks premature and weighed just 2 pounds, 10 ounces(about 1.2kg).
Doctors warned her parents that their child would never be able to walk or talk, let alone live a normal life.
Her 45 year old mother Rita, told the Daily Mail in an interview:
“They told us they had no idea how she could have survived. We had to buy doll’s clothes from the toy store because baby clothes were too big.”
Her two younger siblings however, are not affected by the syndrome. Her internal organs, brain, and bones developed normally, though her body is tiny. Since she has no fatty tissue in which to store nutrients, she has to eat every 15 to 20 minutes to have enough energy to get through the day. One brown eye started clouding over when she was 4 years old, and now she’s blind in that eye and has only limited sight in the other. She is a survivor.
In the comments on YouTube,some viewers called her “it” and “monster” and encouraged her to kill herself.
However Lizzie Velasquez set four goals:
1)To become a motivational speaker
2)To publish a book, to graduate college,
3)To build a family and a career for herself.
Now 24 years old, she is a motivational speaker and has given more than 200 workshops on embracing uniqueness, dealing with bullies, and overcoming obstacles.
She has graduated from Texas State University with a major in communication studies and has two published books , “Lizzie Beautiful” and “Be Beautiful, Be You.
Once in an interview on CNN’s Headline News,she told Dr. Drew Pinsky.
” I think I’m getting to the point where…
instead of sitting by and watching people judge me, I’m starting to want to go up to these people and introduce myself or give them my card and say, ‘Hi, I’m Lizzie. Maybe you should stop staring and start learning”.
I have to say she truly has a beautiful soul. Beauty isn’t just the skin,it goes much deeper than that. This story is also to show people with any medical issues that they can achieve their dreams,live a full life and have fun.
ARE YOU STILL COMPLAINING ABOUT HOW BAD YOUR LIFE IS???? BE INSPIRED.
N.B: To all those who sit behind their computers and say horrible things to others online just know that your all really ignorant and very stupid.
Yep that’s the new Mac Pro, its a cylindrical desktop PC. .I guess Apple decided that the regular shapes we all know are too outdated for this generation. Being an Apple product user I was impressed by the new design but the first question that came to my mind was “how do I use a cylindrical computer”(did anyone think the same way as me)? I still do think its amazing though.
Some people have made fun of it that it looks like a dustbin,some said it looks like a cup. Do you like the new design,more importantly would you use it?
The new Apple Mac Pro is also quite small as it is 9.9 inches. It is also said to be up to 2.5 times faster than the current model we all know. It is also said to be able to run up to three Ultra HD displays simultaneously,support up to 12-core configurations,and ECC memory is at 1866MHz DDR3. It will be available later this year.

Well guys its true. Bikinis have been banned from the 2013 Miss World beauty pageant.
For this year’s Miss World pageant, the contestants will wear Bali’s traditional long sarongs.
The event will be held in Indonesia on September 28, on the resort island of Bali and in Sentul, an area near the capital, Jakarta.
This is as a result of the protests from Muslim groups . Indonesia is one of the countries in the world with the highest Muslim Population .
The chairwoman of the Miss World Organization, Julia Morley,confirmed that none of the 137 contestants would wear a bikini. She said :
“Indonesia is designing for us a very beautiful one-piece beachwear,and I’m very happy with them,”
“The pageant will include a special beachwear fashion show.
“I don’t think Indonesia is the only country that has that culture, but we like to work in the manner respectful to every country, and I cannot see why when you go to somebody’s country you should not behave respectfully.”
Adjie S. Soeratmadjie of the RCTI, the official broadcaster and local organiser reportedly also said,
“There will no bikini in this year’s Miss World pageant to respect our traditional customs and values,” adding that the London-based Miss World Organization is on board with the decision.
“This is a sensitive issue in Indonesia. We have discussed it since last year and they have agreed,” he said.
Justin Gatlin beat Usain Bolt by one-hundredth of a second to win the 100 meters at the Golden Gala meet.
Justin Gatlin who has won all five of his 100-meter races this year might become a serious threat to Bolt at the world championships in Moscow in August.
Justin Gatlin was the reigning Olympic champion when he tested positive, having won the 100 at the 2004 Athens Games.
Usain Bolt will next run the 200 in Oslo, Norway, next week before he returns home for the Jamaican championships. Gatlin has the U.S. trials this month.
