Stalker Caught in Paris Hilton’s Home

This Tuesday around 6:30 AM, security cameras on the Hilton property caught a man sneaking inside with two knives in his hands. The whole security entered into alert and the police was called. Paris Hilton told police tha Lee Parada was banging on windows but never actually entered the home.

The man, Nathan Lee Parada, 31, is now in police custody and being held on 50,000 dollars bail. Parada’s Los Angeles Police Department booking sheet reportedly says he is 5’10” and weighs 178 pounds. If found guilty, he will spend up to 3 years in jail.

Just a few minutes after the arrival of the police forces, paris tewwts a photo of the officers in front of her house and a text saying: “So Scary, just got woken up to a guy trying to break into my house holding 2 big knifes. Cops are here arresting him.”

Later on, Paris and sister Nicky declared:

“It was very frightening, but they are both behind bars, now they are both convicted. When people do something, their actions have consequences, so hopefully, this will make other stockers think twice when they want to do something with me, because I’m gonna make sure they get in trouble.” Paris said.

When asked if she had any bodyguards with her she answered:

“Yes, we did have bodyguards with us then as well. The guy just came up from nowhere, it was very frightening. Thank God he didn’t have a weapon!”

Nicky Hilton was just as scared as her sister:
“There are just some scary, scary people out there. No one should touch anyone and…it’s scary. I definitely have security at home and …it’s scary.”

The property of the Hiltons has 25 cameras working non stop so, as they said, they are feeling “pretty safe”.

Paris remembers that it was not the first incident of the kind. She claims to have had a lot of stalker incidents, which she handled. But after a particular incident, she was forced to up her security:

‘But the scariest one was when a guy turned up at my dad’s office and said he was my fiancé . He forced his way inside and the cops discovered he had a knife on him. That was freaky. ‘Now I have a lot of security all the time so I feel safe. I guess that’s one of the things you have to learn to live with, but it’s still scary.”

Afghanistan, Worst Country for Mom & Baby

A non profit organization raking reveals why Afghanistan is the worst place to live in wif you are a mother.

Save the Children released the 2011 ranking regarding the life conditions of mothers, mothers to be, infants and preschoolers in 164 countries.

The variables taken into consideration were the level of information regarding contraception and the usage of modern contraception, the mortality rate at birth for mothers, the life expectancy of women, the rate of mortality in young children under the age of 5, the medical personnel involved in child birth process an other similar items.

After studying the data, statistics showed that the countries from Africa had the lowest rankings and Afghanistan was ranked last. And here is why: a typical Afghan woman is expected to live approximately 45 years.

One in every 11 women dies at birth and this is mainly because only 14% of them are assisted by trained medical personnel and apparel. After birth, the chances of survival for the little one are 20%. One of 5 children under the age of 5 dies.

In regard to the access to information about modern contraception and its usage, only 16% of the women living in Afghanistan use contraceptives. Plus, education in children is affected by child gender disparity. Along with Afghanistan, the bottom of the list is occupied by Central African Republic, Sudan, Mali, Eritrea, DR Congo, Chad, Yemen, Guinea – Bissau and Niger.

On the other hand, the countries best rated were Norway ( ranked # 1), Australia ( ranked # 2) and Iceland ( ranked # 3). 

These countries have an almost double life expectancy than those in Afghanistan. Only one in 175 women is prone to death at birth or of pregnancy related complications. Almost 100% of the births happen in medical facilities and are assisted by doctors.

They are well informed and the majority uses modern contraception. Plus, Norway has the highest ratio of female-to-male earned income and a maternity leave of almost one year.

The countries that were not listed in the Index had insufficient or unavailable data, or a population number under 250,000.

So what is there to be done? The non profit organization proposes:
“Governments and international agencies need to increase funding to improve levels of education for women and girls, provide access to maternal and child healthcare and advance women’s economic opportunities” Index says.

Sony Sued For 1 Billion Dollars

On April 2nd , the Toronto law firm of McPhadden Samac Tuovi LLP, filed a lawsuit against Sony Canada, Sony USA and other Sony entities. The accusation was the breach of privacy and the sum of money requested was 1 billion Canadian dollars.

The aw firm initiated the procedures on behalf of Ontario resident, Natasha Maksimovic. The 21-year-old Playstation fanatic admits in a statement that she feels cheated and is outraged by the PSN actions taken after the hacker attack.

If you can’t trust a huge multi-national corporation like Sony to protect your private information, who can you trust?” asked an irritated Maksimovic in a statement. And added: “It appears to me that Sony focuses more on protecting its games than its PlayStation users.”

This is the second lawsuit ony has to face after the hacker incident.

Last week, Sony’s database was hacked. The Playstation Network and Sony Online Entertainment have been taken offline and a complex and detailed investigation started.

The electronics giant has immediately hired a team of experts to find out more on the breach and pick up the pieces. The team was formed by Cyber Security detectives from two firms: Guidance Software and Data Forte. Then, the Federal Bureau of Investigation representatives were added.

The original statement of the Japanese company was that 77 million users data was compromised. On Monday, they rectified the figures, adding 25 millions more. The information hacked included users names, addresses and other contact information. When asked for more details on the matter, the Cyber Security detectives wouldn’t give any.

However, FBI leaked some, mentioning the fact that some credit card data have been compromised as well. At this point users all over the world started to really worry.

Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal asked for a detailed timeline of the events after the hacker attack and requested the help of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in the matter, asking him to investigate if Sony’s handling of the breach makes it civilly or criminally liable.

Sony came out and say that the stolen credit card data was from an outdated 2007 database. But it appears that the information was not comforting enough.

At another level Sony hired law firm Baker & Mackenzie to deal with the legal matters of the problem.

What is your opinion on the breach? Do you think Maksimovic is right to ask 1 billion Canadian dollars?
