Hello everyone, it is Tuesday and I have done three posts today including this blog. So after you’re done reading today’s news you should go checkout my review on the movie Paul as well as my interview with Orillia band, Like Animals. I hope everyone had a good day today and are looking forward to the possible snow day in this area that may occur tomorrow. Now for tonight’s news!

Al-Qa’ida Magazing Advises Women To Cover Up An Marry A Martyr

A magazine for women, similar to Elle or Cosmopolitan is giving advice on how to find the right man or “marrying a mujahideen”, how to achieve perfect complexion by standing inside with your face covered and also gives tips on first aid and etiquette. The magazine did interview with martyr’s wives and praises religious Islamic individuals, saying “From martyrdom, the believer will gain security, safety and happiness.” The magazine also goes over the pros and cons of honey face masks and influences women against “towelling too forcibly.” The editor said this when explaining their thinking: "Because women constitute half of the population – and one might even say that they are the population since they give birth to the next generation – the enemies of Islam are bent on preventing the Muslim woman from knowing the truth about her religion and her role, since they know all too well what would happen if women entered the field of jihad... The nation of Islam needs women who know the truth about their religion and about the battle and its dimensions and know what is expected of them." It is being said that the idea is to market global jihad with the writing style of any beauty magazine that is forced on younger women. The United States security is very disturbed by the publisher’s thoughts. The magazine is basically trying to influence acts of terrorism and is believed to be edited by an American citizen by the name of Samir Khan, who is in hiding in Yemen. The man released a series of jihadi magazines which went under the name Jihad Recollections before he fled the States.

Louisiana Middle School Student Suspended For Having Long Hair

It seems that this day in age, teachers and principals can suspend you for just about anything. This is proven by the suspension of Lousiana student Seth Chaisson. The student is an American Indian and he was suspended for two days because he refused to cut his hair. He keeps his hair long for cultural and religious reasons. The ACLU demanded that Chaisson be allowed back into the school permanently and that the suspension was erased from his record. They are disputing that the suspension and even asking the student to cut his hair is a violation of his religious freedom. The executive director of the ACLUE, Marjorie Esman, said that the incident is similar to allowing  a Jewish student to wear a yarmulke or asking a Christian student to take off their cross. Esman stated that Chaisson "is becoming more in tune with his own religious beliefs.  Just as a junior high school student might decide to wear a cross that they had never wanted to wear before, he has now decided to grow his hair out in a way he had never decided to do before." Religious beliefs or not, I think it is ridiculous that an educational employee would suspend a student for simply having long hair. If this is so then suspend all the metal heads as well!

Best Bollywood Action Scenes

UnrealityMag.com did an article on the best Bollywood action scenes. I thought it’d be a nice idea to share with you a few of my favourites. If you would like to see all of the videos, click the link above.

Dead Island Logo Censored In North America

Above you see two logos of Dead Island. On the left is a logo with the “I” in Island replaced with a hanging corpse and on the right, a logo with the “I” replaced with a walking zombie. The change is due to the ESRB restrictions and the game box will have the altered logo on it. The original logo will still remain the same in the actual game. In Europe both logos will remain as the normal logo. The last time the ESRB censored a game cover was in June of 2009 when Left 4 Dead 2 developer’s Valve were forced to add more fingers to the zombie hand on the front of the game case. This is ESRB’s statement on the Dead Island logo: “The video game industry has set guidelines about the types of content that are appropriate in advertising and marketing materials, which includes game box art. According to those guidelines the depiction in the logo was not compliant. We never censor or dictate in any way what type of content can be included within a game. However, a game's marketing materials are seen by an audience that is much broader than that which actually purchases the game itself, so we enforce industry-adopted guidelines as to what is suitable for inclusion in these materials.” This censorship must be because of suicide rates in the continent.

Cool GIFs Made 3D With Twitch Effect

An art director by the name of Matt Moore has been able to create 3D effects on pictures by taking to pictures of the same thing but from different angles that are just a few centimetres apart from each other. TheCreatorsProject.com has his pictures on their site and I thought I would share them with you. You will probably have to click on these thumbnails to get the twitch effect as I doubt that the picture uploader will animate GIFs.

That’s it for today everyone I hope you enjoyed this day filled of posts! I leave you with an informative picture that pits when the ideal age to retire is with the age that people tend to retire at. I also have for you a video I found interesting as actors Jack Black, Andy Samberg, and Seth Rogen have all been interviewed on the little television spin of Take Two With Phineas And Ferb. To finish off this blog, I have a new trailer from the Game Station of Duck Hunt, which is also available in 3D if you go to their channel. I just posted the 2D version to save you the headache of watching the 3D version.
