PHOTOS: Kanye West Buys Two ‘$1 million Bomb-Proof Cars

Kanye West and partner Kim Kardashian were recently singled out by President Obama for their opulent lifestyle.

The couple welcomed their first child in June and Kanye is proving that he will go to any length to protect his family.

The singer spared no expense to acquire two high-performance armored vehicles to protect Kim Kardashian and their baby daughter North.

The 36-year-old rapper has reportedly spent $1.2 million each for two Prombron Iron Diamonds by Dartz Motorz.

On the Dartz website, the Iron Diamond is said to prevent kidnapping, hijacking and ‘other problems which can meet rich and lonely lady on the street.’ The super-SUV is even built to withstand attacks from landmines and rocket-propelled grenades.

West reportedly wants to ensure that his family receives the best protection available.

“Kanye is fully aware that his new family is so high-profile they attract the attention of weirdos and psychopaths,” a source close to the rapper said.

10 Things Every Man Should Know How To Do

We are all as different as we can be, we men. We come in all shades and sizes and understanding how different we are is a very wise move for better co-existence.

That said, there are attributes that we should all posses; attributes that will lead to attitudes that will foster better relationship with other men and of course, women.

This list is in no way exhaustive; we could go on and on but these ten things are proven enhancers of a great life:

1. Learn to say: I love you. I am sorry. I forgive you, after you have learnt to say please and thank you. Say nothing more afterwards. If you are not absolutely sure, never make these 3 statements. It is better to hurt her honestly than deceive her with a lie.

2. Cry: Yeah, cry. I know what you are thinking: ‘Cry? How?! Isn’t that what sissies do? A real man doesn’t cry, simple!’ Not exactly bro. Have you ever wondered why women tend to like vulnerable men? No, I don’t mean you should cry at the drop of a hat or turn into the mythical bush baby constantly crying for his mat. But there’s a reason musicians who sing about their vulnerability fill concert halls…Banky W’s ‘My Regret and Don’t Break My Heart, as well as Darey’s ‘You’re Not the Girl’ and ‘No Stars’ are constant on every request list on night shows on radio.

Women have a natural maternal instinct that makes them want to take care of men; if you refuse to let her see your vulnerable side, you don’t know what you’re missing.

3. Listen: Yeah, shut up and listen. When people open up to talk to you, they seldom need you to tell anything; they just need someone to listen. You will not die suddenly from listening and not saying anything. Also, don’t monopolise discussions. It’s not always about you. Shut up and listen.

4. Ask for Help: Trust me, asking for help does not reduce the size of your manhood. It is absolutely fine to throw your hands in the air and scream for your friends and family to come to your aid when push comes to shove. Yes, be careful who you ask but if you are not surrounded by people you can ask, perhaps you have failed in cultivating useful relationships? Or, perhaps you love being asked for assistance but won’t ask others so you can lord it over them? Shame on you; that’s stuff for kids. Grow up.

5. Dance: Have you ever seen a woman who didn’t find a man that can dance sexy?! Are you a learner? Get back in good terms with your feet bro, dancing raises your chances by 101%. I confess to possessing 2 left legs but when the 3rd bottle of Star kicks in, the dance miraculously takes over. Rediscover your rhythm, make any dance space your temple and they’ll come worship…

6. Kick Ass: Talk to the waiter with respect; don’t verbally or physically abuse people who work for/with you; be kind to those who seek your assistance; talk to women and other men as you would expect to be spoken to. But, when the need arises, kick ass. Kick it so hard that the mere thought of how you kick someone’s ass will put the fear of God in others that they will ensure they don’t do anything that would require you to kick ass. Do it sparingly but be bloody good at it.

7. Name your poison: Vodka on the rocks, double, neat. That’s how a man orders his poison. If you cannot name your poison with clarity, how can you be trusted with giving precise instructions or making important decisions?

8. Read an important book: Yes, the Bible, Quran or the Bhagavad Gita are important texts, if you’re a man of faith. But you will find yourself in many important settings where the discussion will not be about religion. Read an important book; test the waters of knowledge, agree with what you find illuminating, question everything.

9. Cook a meal. It doesn’t have to be anything elaborate. A simple meal will be equally appreciated, although plain Indomie noodles does not count. She knows you can’t cook to save your life but she loves that you can make an effort. It’s the effort that counts, really.

10. Be loyal to something or someone: Loyalty goes a long way, in many ways. Be loyal to a brand, a pet, a football club, a place, a clothing label, an artiste…or somebody. If there’s nothing and no one you can practically die for, who or what do you live for?

Mugabe Secretly Agrees to Sell Uranium to Iran

Zimbabwe has signed a secret deal to supply Iran with the raw materials needed to develop a nuclear weapon, in breach of international sanctions.

“I have seen [a memorandum of understanding] to export uranium to the Iranians,” Zimbabwean Deputy Mining Minister Gift Chimanikire said.

The agreement, which was reportedly signed last year, is likely to cause alarm in Western capitals.

The United States and the European Union have imposed crippling sanctions on Iran over its nuclear programme which Tehran insists is for peaceful energy uses but which they fear is intended to build a bomb.

Zimbabwe is also subject to international sanctions over its human rights record and conduct of elections.

President Robert Mugabe, who won another five-year term in disputed polls last month, has publicly backed Iran’s nuclear drive.

During a visit by Iran’s then president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to Harare in April 2010, Mugabe said his guest should be assured of “Zimbabwe’s continuous support of Iran’s just cause on the nuclear issue”.

Chimanikire is a member of Zimbabwe’s opposition who is likely to be replaced now that the election has brought an end to the shaky coalition government.

He said the uranium deal had been made without his knowledge, and was only known to a handful of people at the top of the government.

Despite the agreement, analysts sayi that it was likely to be a long time before Zimbabwe’s uranium reserves were ready for export.

3 Simple Ways To Impress Women And Get Them To Like You

Looking for ways to impress the girl you like? Here are a few points you need to keep in mind…

Do not try too hard

First and foremost do not try to impress her! There is the big secret. The best way to impress a girl is not to impress her. Wondering how this really works? Well when most guys try to impress girls they tend to become more unauthentic and try to show off with almost anything and everything. Girls are not impressed by such tactics and would end up putting you in their list of ‘the show off’ guys. The best way to impress a girl is to be yourself and let things happen automatically.

Let her respect who you are

You are highly mistaken if you think that girls have only money and material things on their mind. If you find that a girl is impressed by your money than she is probably looking for money and not for you. The best way to impress a girl and retain your status is by the way of natural talents which involve the way you talk and present yourself. You need girls to respect you for what you are and not what you or your parents possess.

Talk her in

One of things which almost every girl demands and gets impressed by is intellectuality. Try to develop your intellectual skills. This can be done by reading up and increasing your knowledge. Read more books and be up-to-date with the latest happenings. Remember being a good talker is the foundation of impressing almost any girl. No girl would be impressed by you unless you have something which is different from the rest. Girls normally get hit on by several guys everyday and almost all those boys try to impress them with all they’ve got. If you are doing and following the same tactics as all those boys than you would never succeed in your quest to impress girls. Show your true self while trying to impress a girl. Don’t talk to her with the quest to impress rather try to do what you normally do.

PHOTOS: Creepy Lifelike Baby Dolls Made To Console Grieving Parents

Belgium — These incredibly life-like dolls are so realistic you could easily be forgiven for thinking they were real babies. Costing up to thousands of euros each, they are certainly no children’s toys, but handcrafted one-off works of art that take dozens of hours to create.

They are made to order for collectors but are also proving popular with grieving or nostalgic parents and grandparents as mementos of their own children.
They are the work of Belgian artist Beatrice Van Landeghem, whose workshop, ‘La nurserie des Tis Lous De Bea’, is based in La Louviere, southern Belgium.
The ‘Reborn Babies’ are carefully crafted in vinyl and are even weighed to make them feel exactly as heavy as human babies when carried.
The dolls are created from a kit composed of the limbs and head made from vinyl and a trunk made from fabric which are painted several times to create the skin tone of newborn babies.

They are then fitted with natural-looking hair and eyelashes.

The cost of a ‘Reborn Baby’ varies between hundreds to thousands of euros and takes around 25 hours to be assembled together depending on the level of precision requested by people who ‘adopt’ the dolls.
