På plats i Göteborg: Här är bilarna på årets elbilsmässa

På plats i Göteborg: Här är bilarna på årets elbilsmässa

På fredagen slogs Svenska Mässans dörrar upp för Ecar expo, en av de största elbilsmässorna i Norden. Mässan har arrangerats i Göteborg även tidigare men har nya inslag i år, som till exempel möjligheten för besökare att provköra ett 50-tal laddbara bilar direkt från mässgolvet ut i Göteborgstrafiken. Den största provkörningsflottan någonsin för mässans del, inklusive ett 30-tal helt nya elbilsmodeller.

Lokala biltillverkaren Volvo Cars elbil XC40 Recharge finns dock inte på plats, men bilmärket var däremot representerade genom Polestar, bilmärket för eldrivna prestandabilar som ägs gemensamt av Volvo Car Group och Zhejiang Geely Holding. Att XC40 inte visades upp på mässan beror enligt företaget på att Polestar ligger före i produktionsplanen.

– Polestar börjar att produceras i början av 2020, medan Volvo Cars XC40 Recharge först senare nästa år, säger Stefan Elfström, presstalesperson Volvo Cars.

Därför fick modellerna in

Allt fler fordonstillverkare satsar nu på el, medan Tesla gick in helhjärtat in redan från början. Tom Sjötun, ordförande för Tesla Owners West Sweden, har kört alla modellerna. Nu väntar han på nästa modell, Model Y, och berättar Teslaprofilens Elon Musks tanke bakom modellernas namn:

– Den första heter S, den andra heter X och trean skulle egentligen heta E och så har du ju Y som kommer. Då blir det ju “SEXY”, men så fanns det redan en bilmodell som hette E, säger han.

– Men en bakvänd trea blir ju E, så då får du “SEXY” ändå. När de sedan släpper sin pickup, sin cybertruck, och så har du C, sedan släpper de en all-terrain vehicle, A, och sedan en roadster, en sportbil, R, och en semitruck, en lastbil, och då får du “SEXY CARS”. Ändå rätt kaxigt!

Ecar Expo huserade under två år i mindre mässlokaler i Göteborg och Stockholm. Under fjolåret valde man dock att hålla till på en enda plats, Svenska Mässans lokaler i Göteborg. Så blev de ju alltså i år igen men i början på februari är det dags för Stockholm och en 600 meter lång provkörningsbana inomhus i Friends Arena.

Sequestrador de bar na Lapa sofreu tentativa de assassinato há uma semana, diz OAB

Sequestrador de bar na Lapa sofreu tentativa de assassinato há uma semana, diz OAB

Ambulante e produtor cultural manteve reféns por oito horas nesta sexta-feira e foi preso após ser atingido por arma de choque, no fim da noite desta sexta-feira (30).

Polícia prende homem que manteve sete reféns em um bar no centro do Rio

Polícia prende homem que manteve sete reféns em um bar no centro do Rio

Danilo Macedo, que manteve sete pessoas reféns em um bar da Lapa, região central do Rio, nesta sexta-feira (29), sofreu uma tentativa de assassinato no último dia 19, afirmou a Ordem dos Advogados do Brasil (OAB).

Segundo o órgão, essa tentativa de homicídio causou um surto psicótico em Danilo. Por isso, ele teria sequestrado as vítimas no bar. Ninguém no estabelecimento ficou ferido.

O homem que tentou matar Danilo não estava entre os reféns — na maioria, funcionários da Empresa Brasil de Comunicação (EBC).

Álvaro Quintão, secretário-geral da OAB do RJ e presidente da Comissão de Direitos Humanos, acompanhou o depoimento de Danilo na delegacia, na madrugada deste sábado (30).

“Há cerca de uma semana Danilo foi vítima de uma tentativa de homicídio”, afirmou Quintão. “Ele teve consequências desse episódio. Hoje [sexta], teve um surto e acabou perdendo a cabeça”, emendou.

A OAB não detalhou onde ocorreu essa tentativa de homicídio, mas explicou que foi em represália a um desentendimento, dias antes, no mesmo Bar da Preta.

“[No dia 19] essa pessoa tentou matá-lo”, destacou Quintão. “Tentou dar dois tiros, a arma falhou, e o Danilo se atracou com o agressor”, narrou.

Segundo a OAB, ainda não está claro o que motivou a primeira briga.

O estabelecimento onde ocorreu o sequestro, conhecido como Bar da Preta, fica na Rua do Rezende, numa região movimentada do Centro.

A TV Globo apurou que Danilo da Caipirinha mora em cima do bar. Ele também seria vendedor de bebidas na região do Centro.

A ocorrência teve início por volta das 15h, quando homens do Corpo de Bombeiros foram acionados para socorrer vítimas de agressão por “arma branca”. No local, porém, foi constatado que se tratava de um sequestro com reféns em um bar, que já estava parcialmente fechado.

A dona do bar, Lúcia Aparecida Ferreira Baptista, de 64 anos – conhecida como Preta – foi libertada às 18h. Antes de a mulher ser solta, a filha dela, Elaine Pereira, acompanhava o sequestro e estava apreensiva porque a mãe, segundo ela, sofre de hipertensão.

Por volta das 22h40, quando todos os reféns já tinham saído do Bar da Preta, homens do Batalhão de Operações Especiais entraram no estabelecimento e imobilizaram Danilo da Caipirinha — como o criminoso é conhecido — com uma arma de choque.

Com ele, a PM apreendeu três facas e garrafas com gasolina. Nenhum refém ficou ferido.

Instead of masturbation being difficult and a bit uncomfortable right up until that actual orgasm, this little device makes the entire session fantastic. I wound up telling my sister, who is disabled and has difficulty with fine motor control, about it so she got one and is able to hold it perfectly without issues or assistance and it has drastically improved her quality of life as well.

I was reluctant at first to drop more money and thought maybe I am just doomed in the pleasure department. NOT ANYMORE!!! This TOY is JUST what I needed!! Hell…I may keep it under my pillow. I NEVER leave reviews but this product NEEDS to be shared with others!!” —Southrnchick

Tim Murtagh announces Ireland retirement, signs new Middlesex deal

Tim Murtagh announces Ireland retirement, signs new Middlesex deal
12:18 PM GMT

  • ESPNcricinfo staff

Tim Murtagh has announced his retirement from Ireland duty after signing a two-year contract extension with Middlesex. The decision, forced in part by the change to ECB regulations that would have seen him classed as an overseas player had his continued his international career, means Murtagh’s final outing in an Ireland shirt was his honours board-worthy performance in their maiden Test at Lord’s.

Murtagh, 38, has instead committed to Middlesex, where he has taken almost 1000 wickets since moving from Surrey in 2007. He was first capped by Ireland in 2012, qualifying through his Irish grandparents, and went on to feature in all three formats, delivering their first ball as a Test nation at Malahide last year.

However, with Ireland’s rise to Test status came the ECB’s decision to revoke their status as non-overseas players. With that rule due to come into effect from next summer, Murtagh has lived up to his word after telling Middlesex’s director of cricket, Angus Fraser, that he would stick with the county if required to make the choice. Several Irish players have been forced to give up county contracts in recent times, including Paul Stirling at Middlesex.

“This is a day that I have known has been coming for a few years since the ECB changed their regulations, but it hasn’t made the decision any easier,” Murtagh said. “I’ve had eight great years playing international cricket and loved every minute of it. It’s sad that it has come to an end but a decision that I have made my peace with.

“I made a promise to Angus Fraser when I first started playing international cricket that if I ever had to make a choice between playing for Ireland or rewarding Middlesex for the commitment they’d shown to me over the years, that I would commit to finishing my playing days at Lord’s.

“Having been a member of the Middlesex family for over a decade now, I believe that with the additions we’ve made over the winter, we have one of the most promising squads here now that I’ve ever been a part of.

“I wouldn’t have committed my future to Middlesex unless I felt that the club shared my ambition to win trophies and we have a huge amount of young talent here to drive us forwards towards that goal. Under the new coaching regime, we’ve got a harmonious dressing room that is excited for the new season to get underway and a new captain that everyone is keen to impress.”

Murtagh made his T20I and ODI debuts within a few days of each other in July 2012, although his hopes of playing at the 2015 World Cup were dashed by a foot injury. He was part of the 2016 World T20 team, before making three Test appearances as Ireland rose to Full Member status at the ICC.

Each of them were memorable: he opened the bowling against Pakistan in 2018, taking six wickets as Ireland briefly threatened an upset; against Afghanistan, in Dehradun, he scored a maiden Test fifty batting at No. 11; and then at Lord’s earlier this year, his five-wicket haul saw England dismissed before lunch on the first day, although Ireland then collapsed themselves in the second innings as the wait for a first Test win went on.

“On behalf of the management and staff of Cricket Ireland I’d like to thank Tim for his eight years of service to Irish cricket,” Cricket Ireland’s performance director, Richard Holdsworth, said. “It only seems like the other day that we were organising the paperwork to allow him to declare for Ireland – while you always hope for the best when opportunities like that arise, little did we know the impact he would have on the international setup.

“Irish cricket has been on quite a journey over the last decade, and Tim has certainly played a key role in our rise. That the Lord’s Test will be his last game for us is very appropriate, and he certainly gave a lot of Irish fans great pleasure on that first morning having written his name on the honours board before lunch.

“We know how hard the decision was for him, but we wish Tim, Karina and his family well. I would also like to thank Angus Fraser and all at Middlesex Cricket for their support and flexibility in working with us on Tim’s availability for internationals and tours. Cricket Ireland and Middlesex have had a great relationship over many years, and it is always appreciated when club and country can work so well together for the benefit of the player.”

Murtagh is set to play on into his 40s with Middlesex, with the club aiming to push for promotion in the Championship next season. Middlesex finished a disappointing eighth in Division Two in 2019, with Dawid Malan resigning the captaincy and subsequently moving to Yorkshire; they will be led next year by Australia batsman Peter Handscomb.

Middlesex’s head coach, Stuart Law, said: “To have Murts commit to Middlesex for the future is really great news for the club. It has been a tough decision for him no doubt, but we are looking forward to seeing him continue to provide the team with quality and experience.

“A vital member of our squad, both on and off the field, I look forward to working with him again in 2020.”

Three Women Accuse Trump’s EU Envoy Gordon Sondland of Sexual Misconduct. Here’s What They Said.

Three Women Accuse Trump’s EU Envoy Gordon Sondland of Sexual Misconduct. Here’s What They Said.

Three women have accused the U.S. ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland of sexual misconduct and retaliating against them professionally because they rejected his advances.

The women, who all spoke on the record to ProPublica, claim Sondland, who has become a key witness in the impeachment inquiry, all claim Sondland tried to force himself on them, and in one case he even exposed himself.

Sondland has denied all allegations and through his lawyer has claimed the report could be an attempt to undermine his blockbuster testimony in Congress last week.

The women also claim that the result of their rejection of his sexual advances resulted in professional retaliation, which included harassment, loss of investments, and an end to help securing a new job.

The cases span a seven-year period between 2003 and 2010, during which Sondland was a prominent businessman in Portland, where he owns five hotels.

Here’s what the women told ProPublica:

  • Nicole Vogel met Sondland in 2003 when she was 34 years old. She was seeking investors for an art and culture magazine she wanted to start in Portland. Sondland told her over dinner that he wanted to invest in her project. Afterward, they went to one of his hotels and in one of the rooms, he grabbed Vogel’s face and tried to kiss her. She deflected the kiss by reminding Sondland that he was married before leaving through the lobby. “There were a lot of indecent proposals when I was raising capital, but none as brazen as his,” Vogel said. Weeks later, Sondland backed out of his commitment to invest in the magazine.
  • Jana Solis, a hospitality safety engineer, met Sondland in 2008, and her first meeting with him ended with him slapping her on the ass. She then visited him at his home to assess his art collection, a visit that ended with him exposing himself in the pool house. Finally, at Sondland’s penthouse suite in the Roosevelt Hotel in Seattle, he pounced on her. “He’s all over me. He’s on top of me. He’s kissing me, shoving his tongue down my throat. And I’m trying to wiggle out from under him, and the next thing you know, I’m sort of rising up to get away from him, and I fall over the back of the couch,” Solis said. Days later Sondland called Solis and screamed at her over the phone.
  • Natalie Sept also met Sondland in 2010, at the same restaurant he took Vogel to in 2003. They were due to discuss a potential job for Sept, at the state film commission. They moved on to a cocktail bar down the road, but when Sept started feeling uneasy about the situation and made excuses to leave, Sondland insisted on walking her to her car. There, Sept says she gave him a brief hug but “he holds onto my shoulders and looks at me and pushes himself into me and tries to kiss me.” Sept escaped, but the job offer never materialized.

Sondland has staunchly denied all the allegations.

“In decades of my career in business and civic affairs, my conduct can be affirmed by hundreds of employees and colleagues with whom I have worked in countless circumstances,” Sondland told ProPublica. “These untrue claims of unwanted touching and kissing are concocted and, I believe, coordinated for political purposes. They have no basis in fact, and I categorically deny them.”

In a statement posted on his own website, Sondland denied all allegations, calling the report “underhanded journalism” and listing all the issues he has with the report.

Among the complaints he lists is the fact that Vogel owns Portland Monthly, which jointly published the report with ProPublica. Both publications said that Vogel was not involved in editorial decisions about the piece.

Sondland, who was confirmed as Trump’s pick as EU Ambassador in June 2018, last week confirmed a quid pro quo at the heart of Democrats’ impeachment case. Sondland said Trump and his inner circle knew about everything he was doing to encourage Ukraine to investigate Trump’s political enemies.

Sondland’s lawyer Jim McDermott has suggested that the timing of the report could lead some to “consider this to be veiled witness tampering.”

McDermott also suggested that all the women involved were simply looking to profit financially and professionally.

“Notably, what each of these three women share in common is that they pursued Ambassador Sondland for financial and personal gain — an investment, a job, and insurance brokerage work — and he declined their proposals,” McDermott said in a letter to ProPublica.

Berliner Institution: Der KitKat Club muss schließen

Berliner Institution
Der KitKat Club muss schließen

Weil die Räume gekündigt wurden, muss der weltberühmte Fetischklub KitKat offenbar schließen, berichten Berliner Zeitungen. Im Sommer 2020 könnte Schluss sein.

Muss im Sommer ausziehen: das KitKat in Berlin

Die Bar25 ist weg, das King Size auch, das Stadtbad Wedding sowieso: In Berlin sterben seit Jahren Klubs. Partygänger, die sich gern freizügig kleiden und auf den Fetisch-Partys im KitKat feiern, müssen sich nun wappnen: Dem KitKat und dem SageClub, die sich die Räumlichkeiten in einem Gebäude in Berlin teilen, droht das Aus. Beiden Klubs wurden die Räume gekündigt. Das sagte der Geschäftsführer der Clubcommission Lukas Drevenstedt der “Berliner Zeitung”.

Demnach sollen die beiden Klubs das Gebäude im Juni 2020 verlassen. Drevenstedt sagte allerdings, dass noch nicht klar sei, was mit dem Areal anschließend geschehe. Trotz Kündigung gebe es noch Hoffnung, dass man sich zusammenfinde.

KitKat und SageClub zählen in Berlin zu den gefragtesten Institutionen des Nachtlebens. Vor allem das KitKat ist wegen der freizügigen Outfits seiner Partygäste bekannt – und wegen der Fetisch-Partys, die dort regelmäßig stattfinden. Dass die beiden legendären Discos weichen müssen, sorgte bereits im Internet für Unmut.

In den vergangenen Jahren hatte die Clubcommission, ein Zusammenschluss von 250 Berliner Klubbetreibern und Veranstaltern, einige Klubs schließen müssen – weil Investoren andere Pläne mit den Räumen hatten oder die Klubs zu viel Lärm verursachten.

Mehr gesetzlicher Schutz für Klubs

Im vergangenen Jahr geriet das KitKat in die Schlagzeilen, weil nach dem Besuch des Klubs ein Gast an einer bakteriellen Hirnhautentzündung erkrankt war. Die restlichen Klubbesucher waren daraufhin dazu aufgerufen worden, unverzüglich zum Arzt zu gehen. Dem Landesamt für Gesundheit und Soziales Berlin (Lageso) waren daraufhin allerdings keine weiteren Erkrankungen oder Verdachtsfälle bekannt geworden.

Erst vor wenigen Wochen ging aus einem Antrag der Bundestagsfraktion der Grünen der Vorschlag hervor, Klubs und anderen Spielstätten für Livemusik besonderen gesetzlichen Schutz zu gewähren. Klubs seien Kultureinrichtungen und müssten auch als solche behandelt werden, heißt es darin. Dazu gehöre ein mietrechtlicher Schutz.

Die Grünen bemängeln, bislang würden Klubs baurechtlich mit Bordellen und Spielhallen gleichgestellt. Der Staat müsse schützend Szenarien verhindern, die ein Klubsterben zur Folge hätten. Besonders in Großstädten haben viele Musikklubs mit Mieterhöhungen sowie Klagen von Anwohnern gegen Lärmbelastungen zu kämpfen.

Willkommen im Jahr 2019 – Kultur ist nichts mehr wert.

Allein im RHein-Main-Gebiet schließen drei Musikclubs, ein weitere hat eine Gnadenfrist von einem Jahr bekommen. Bald gibt es Musik nur noch bei Spotify, oder die Rolling Stones geben ein Abschiedskonzert im Stadion für 500 Euro Eintritt. Alles, was kleine und mittlere Kultur ausmacht – und das ist die Mehrzahl, der Mittelstand der Kultur – wird gerade zerstört.

Tja, so geht es Stück für Stück dahin, das vielfältige und spannende Clubleben in dieser meiner Stadt. In den einschlägigen Gegenden in Kreuzberg/Friedrichshain ziehen bald nur noch die Myriaden an EasyJet-Partyblagen um die – weltweit mittlerweile überall gleich öden – Etablissements und fühlen sich hier dennoch wie die coole Avantgarde – ohne zu merken, dass sie in ihrem Tun hier mehr einem gigantischen Abiball in der Provinz ähneln. Mallorca-Schinkengasse 2.0, sozusagen. Das, und das fragwürdige Gebaren profitgieriger Immobilenfonds, durchaus im unglücklichen Verein mit großstadtlärmallergischen Neubürgern machen dieser Stadt langsam aber sicher den Garaus. Was bin ich glücklich, dass ich die aufregenden frühern 90er hier noch aktiv erleben konnte…

Bundesweit hat die Club- und Gastronomieszene einen schweren Stand. Steigende Mieten, All-you-can-eat Angebote und ein verändertes Ausgehverhalten machen das Business zum harten Alltagskampf. Klassische Individualgastronomie wird von Kettengastronomien mit Einheitssystem verdrängt, die Clubs leiden unter kaum verlässlicher Besucherfrequenz. Clubbesucher – meist Altersklasse 20-30 – wollen heute etwas “geboten” bekommen und in Zeiten von “Social-Media”-Kommunikation zählt Posing für Instagram und Wodka-Flasche Famous-for-ten-Minutes auf dem Tisch. Mieten sind definitiv das weitere Problem. Ich spreche aus Erfahrung. einen meiner drei Club, Bar und Restaurantbetriebe musste ich letztes Jahr nach 15 Jahren Szenepräsenz schliessen, da nach Immobilienverkauf die Miete in einer Innenstadt B-Lage von 4.000 auf 13.000 Euro angesetzt werden sollte. Na dann Prost!

Ein sehr ignoranter Kommentar. Es werden reihenweise Clubs gezwungen dichtzumachen und Kultur kaputtgemacht und ein Großteil sind keine Lokalitäten in denen sexuelle Aktivitäten stattfinden. Und selbst wo das passiert sind diese nicht der Mittelpunkt des Geschehens. Aber Sie haben vermutlich noch nie einen Musikclub von innen gesehen und haben persönlich auch kein Interesse, da kann man dann leicht sagen “braucht es nicht”.

Ella (84) tinderde erop los en is nu verloofd!

Ella (84) tinderde erop los en is nu verloofd!

„Er is zoveel eenzaamheid onder ouderen”, begint de jeugdig ogende Ella. „Veel ouderen zijn bang voor datingsites als E-matching of voor Tinder. Ze vragen: ’Hoe durfde je dat?’. Ik wil daarin een voorbeeld zijn. Je hoeft niet alleen en ongelukkig thuis te zitten als je – zelfs op hoge leeftijd – nog heel goed iemand kunt ontmoeten! Verliefd worden op mijn 80ste voelt hetzelfde als op mijn 18de. We zijn zo ontzettend blij met elkaar. Als we langs elkaar lopen, moeten we elkaar gewoon even aanraken of een kus geven.”

Geraniums

„Zeven jaar geleden overleed mijn tweede echtgenoot, na een huwelijk van dertig jaar. Ongeveer drie jaar geleden maakte ik een account aan op Tinder. Het is niet zo dat ik treurig achter de geraniums zat en ik was evenmin echt op zoek, maar ik zou het wel leuk vinden om iemand te ontmoeten. Ik heb daaraan wel een paar leuke relaties overgehouden, maar de ware zat er niet tussen.”

„Twee jaar geleden zette mijn kleindochter (22) mij er weer op onder een andere leeftijd, omdat ik een beetje sceptisch was. Ik was immers al 83! Ze heeft me toen 73 ’gemaakt’, omdat ze vond dat ik nog prima kon doorgaan voor iemand van die leeftijd.”

Verdriet door scheiding

„Op een gegeven moment kreeg ik een reactie van mijn huidige verloofde. Hij had veel verdriet van zijn scheiding en ook hij was door zijn kleindochter op Tinder gezet. Ik was één van de eersten met wie hij een match had. Hij riep direct: ’Dat is ze’ toen hij mijn foto’s zag. Hij hoefde de rest van de matches al niet meer te zien. Het was gelijk goed.”

Minnaar

„We spraken af bij de piano op Amsterdam CS. Ik herkende hem direct en riep zijn naam. Hij was zo’n leuke verschijning! Ik was niet meteen verliefd, maar hield wel gelijk van hem. Het was meteen goed. Zo’n fijne man is het, met zo’n leuke kop. Langzaam werden we zeer verliefd en dat zijn we nog steeds.”

„Hij is lief, heeft humor, ziet er goed uit en is een goede minnaar. We hebben veel interesses gemeen, bijvoorbeeld onze liefde voor muziek. Laatst zijn we samen naar het Concertgebouw geweest en dan vind ik het heerlijk om hem zo te zien genieten. Hij is echt een boeiende man. Ik vind het een groot cadeau dat ik hem heb mogen ontmoeten en dat mijn kleindochter mij op Tinder heeft gezet.”

Verloofd

Het was nog wel ’een dingetje’ dat ze aan haar huidige verloofde – die zes jaar jonger is – haar echte leeftijd moest verklappen. „Ik zei: ’Er wordt nergens zo veel gelogen als op Tinder, en ook ik moet iets opbiechten’. Maar hij maakte er een grapje over: ’Ik dacht dat je ging zeggen dat je niet 73 maar 63 was!’.”

„We hebben ons afgelopen april in Parijs verloofd op de Pont Neuf bij de Notre-Dame. Compleet met ringen. Dat was zeer romantisch, ook al brandde de kerk vijf dagen later, op 15 april, af. Alleen… we hoeven niet te trouwen; we zijn ’engaged not to be married’. We vinden het gewoon fijn om ons op die manier met elkaar verbonden te voelen. Ook onze kinderen en kleinkinderen zijn heel blij voor ons.”

Kus

Ella en haar verloofde wonen (nog) niet samen, maar tijdens ons gesprek is haar geliefde wel bij haar. Hij drentelt wat door het huis, drukt een kus op haar hoofd voor hij boodschappen gaat doen… „Hij woont in een andere stad. Ik heb hier mijn huis. Het is goed zo. We zien elkaar ongeveer de helft van de week en genieten dan ontzettend van elkaar.”

„Mijn belangrijkste boodschap is voor andere ouderen. Ik ben het levende bewijs dat online daten goed kan gaan. Je hoeft niet bang te zijn dat iemand er met je bankgegevens of informatie vandoorgaat. Als iemand met enge verhalen komt, kun je die persoon gelijk blokkeren. Geen probleem. Je hebt het helemaal zelf in de hand.”

100

„Het enge moet eraf. Want: het is niet eng! Je blijft anoniem als je dat wil. Tenzij je een afspraak maakt. Ik hoop dat er nog eens een aparte Tinder of datingsite komt voor 70-plussers. Dat zou wat meer vertrouwen wekken voor mensen. En geloof me, je telefoon wordt er een stuk spannender van met Tinder erop. Dan heb je weer een match: ting-ting’.”

Ella hoopt nog lang te mogen genieten van haar verloofde: „Mijn moeder is 100 geworden en ze zag er nog prachtig uit op die leeftijd. Maar ik ben niet bezig met de dag van morgen. Ik leef in het nu, geniet van vandaag. Ik ben een blij en vrolijk mens en zal nooit zeuren. Ik heb veel interesses en ben nog volop actief. Zo fijn dat ik dit alles nu kan delen met mijn heerlijke geliefde!”

Woman Left Gutted After Pet Dog Destroys Her Favourite Sex Toy

Woman Left Gutted After Pet Dog Destroys Her Favourite Sex Toy

A naughty pooch destroyed one of his owner’s sex toys leaving her ‘gutted’.

Stacey Eales came home earlier this month when she spotted some bits of pink plastic on the floor – initially she assumed that her dog Bugzy had chewed one of his own toys, but after popping into the bedroom she discovered it was actually one of her own toys.

Twenty-nine-year old Stacey shared hilarious photos showing a very guilty-looking Bugzy, a French bulldog and Staffy cross, peering at his owner as well as the wrecked sex toy.

Ironically, the toy is called Tracy’s Dog, which Stacey pointed out, was destroyed by Stacey’s dog.

Stacey, from Nuneaton, said: “It was a really good toy to be fair, so I’m gutted.

“The dog ate ‘the dog’, I think Bugzy knew and was like, ‘I’m the only dog in this house’.

“I got home from work knackered after a long day, made myself a cup of tea and started walking up the stairs.

“I saw a little pink thing at the bottom of my stairs on my carpet and thought maybe he’d chewed up one of his toys.

“Then I realised he didn’t have any pink toys and as I went into my bedroom, I saw it in pieces on the floor.

“I remember thinking ‘oh no, what have you done?’

“He just sat next to the bed and he looked so adorable I couldn’t even tell him off.”

Stacey said Bugzy has previous and had even chewed up the box the £57 toy arrived in when she ordered it.

“When I bought this toy, it was in a nice little posh box and had a little silky bag inside,” she said. “I nipped out for an hour, came back and he’d chewed the box.

“I was a bit gutted that the box went but now it’s the toy as well. I think it’s his way of saying ‘pay attention to me’.

“I’d used it the night before and I fell asleep straight after. I’d just slotted it between the mattress and the side of my bed.

“In the morning I’d made my bed and gone to work, it didn’t enter my mind that he might find it, but he likes to pull the quilt in and get in my spot when I go to work.

“Obviously he’s pulled the quilt back, spotted it and probably thought ‘oh, a new toy’.

“He’s a nightmare with toys, he destroys them all – I bet that one was a bit of fun for him to chew on.”

Stacey said that even after Bugzy chomped on it, the toy still switched on and vibrated, albeit it a lot less powerfully.

She said: “It still vibrates a little bit now. One of the buttons still works, it’s just a bit of a distorted vibration. I had to throw it away, but I’ll get myself a new one.

“I wasn’t cross with him, but I did find it funny. Out of everything he could have chewed I can’t believe he chewed that.

“When I found it, he came upon the bed next to me and put his paw on me as if to say sorry, and I gave him a big cuddle.

“I’ve only had it two months, if I get a replacement one, I’ll definitely be hiding it in a different place. I’ll be putting it in the safe.”

Stacey showed a joking post about offering up Bugzy ‘free to a good home‘ but says that other than the odd bit of chewing insists he’s the ‘most well-behaved dog’ she’s ever had.

“He’s an absolute baby,” she said. “I couldn’t be without him. He’s a big softie.

“He’s scared of cats and he wants attention all the time, he’s so loving and affectionate.

“He’s the most well-behaved dog I’ve ever had, apart from the odd little chewing. I can live with that.”

SWR-Doku über Doppelmörder: Die bizarren Sex-Fantasien von Jens Söring

SWR-Doku über Doppelmörder: Die bizarren Sex-Fantasien von Jens Söring

Fast 30 Jahre lang saß Jens Söring (53) in den USA im Gefängnis. Der deutsche Diplomaten-Sohn soll 1985 die Eltern seiner Ex-Freundin ermordet haben – es ist einer der spektakulärsten Kriminalfälle der vergangenen Jahrzehnte.

Farmeville (US-Bundesstaat Virginia) – Denn an der Mord-Schuld von Jens Söring bestehen erhebliche Zweifel. Auch seine Ex-Freundin Elizabeth Haysom wurde beschuldigt, die Tat begangen zu haben. Haysom wurde wegen Anstiftung zum Mord zu 90 Jahren Gefängnis verurteilt.

Jetzt wurde das einstige Paar begnadigt und soll abgeschoben werden. Haysom nach Kanada, Söring nach Deutschland.

Der „SWR“ zeigte deshalb in der Nacht auf Dienstag die Dokumentation „Das Versprechen“ von 2016. Der Film erregte Aufsehen, denn er schlüsselte den Fall neu auf und zeigte intime Details der bizarren Beziehung zwischen Söring und Haysom.

Mutter hatte Nacktfotos ihrer Tochter

Jens Söring und Elizabeth Haysom lernten sich im August 1984 an der Universität von Virginia kennen. Damals war Söring gerade 18 Jahre alt geworden, Haysom war etwa zweieinhalb Jahre älter. „Sie war so sehr charismatisch und eben verdammt gutaussehend. Eine ganze Menge Jungen waren in sie verliebt“, erzählt Söring in der Dokumentation.

Die beiden freundeten sich an, wurden wenig später ein Paar. Doch Haysom hatte zu Hause viele Probleme, nahm Drogen wie LSD und Heroin. In ihrem Gerichtsgutachten gab sie später an, dass ihre Mutter sie missbraucht habe.

Nach dem Mord fanden die Ermittler im Atelier von Nancy Haysom Nacktfotos ihrer Tochter.

Auch unter dem Kontrollzwang ihrer Eltern litt Elizabeth Haysom. Vor Gericht erzählte sie: „Sie kontrollierten alles, was ich tat. Meine Mutter kam zu den seltsamsten Zeiten, Tag und Nacht ins Studentenwohnheim. Um zu kontrollieren, was ich tat.“

Bizarre Briefe über Mordlust und schwarze Magie

Die Wut auf ihre Eltern soll Elizabeth auch auf Jens Söring übertragen haben. Das Paar entwickelte Mordfantasien. Wie sehr sich Jens Söring und Elizabeth Haysom in ihre Wut hineinsteigerten, belegen viele Briefe zwischen ihnen.

In einem davon schreibt Hayson: „Wäre es möglich, meine Eltern zu hypnotisieren? Voodoo anzuwenden, ihnen den Tod zu wünschen?“ Und weiter: „Ich denke, ich sollte ernsthaft anfangen schwarze Magie auszuüben.“


Die Opfer: Derek and Nancy Haysom

Schockierend: Als die Polizei die Leichen der Eltern vorfindet, ist auf dem blutigen Boden des Esszimmers die Zahl „666“ eingeritzt. Spuren ergeben, dass die beiden offenbar kurz vor der Hinrichtung mit ihrem Mörder gegessen und getrunken hatten.


Der Tatort: Der Boden des Esszimmers ist voller Blut. In diesem Raum hatten die Eltern von Haysom zuvor gegessen

Jens Söring schreibt in einem Brief an Elizabeth Haysom: „Würde ich deine Eltern treffen, hätte ich die ultimative Waffe. Seltsame Dinge geschehen in mir. Ich werde mehr und mehr zu einer Art Jesus.“ Und weiter: „Liebe ist eine Form der Meditation und die ultimative Waffe gegen deine Eltern. Mein Gott, wie ich die Abendessensszene durchgeplant habe.“

Sex direkt nach Beerdigung der Eltern

Nachdem die Eltern tot sind, geraten Elizabeth Haysom und Jens Söring zunächst nicht unter Verdacht. Die beiden gehen zusammen auf die Beerdigung. Wenig später gibt Haysom vor Gericht zu, dass sie noch in derselben Nacht Sex mit Söring hatte. „Jens kam zu mir und sagte, dass er mich bräuchte. Er wäre einsam und er hätte Angst. Ich ging also mit ihm.“

Nachdem die beiden Tatverdächtigen nach London geflohen sind, bleiben sie nur noch unter sich. Jens Söring in der Doku: „Nach dieser Nacht, haben wir nie wieder darüber gesprochen. Wir haben es noch nicht mal genannt. Wir hatten da so einen Ausdruck für: unsere kleine Ekligkeit.“ Und weiter: „Wir konnten uns nicht voneinander trennen.“

Selbst nach ihrer Verhaftung schreiben sich die zwei weiter Briefe. „Unser Scheußlichkeiten der Vergangenheit könnten zu groß sein, um sie zu verdrängen. Aber du kannst und wirst das Erlebte vergessen, weil du einen guten F*** möchtest“, heißt es in einem Brief von Jens Söring.

Von Reue zeigt der Diplomaten-Sohn keine Spur, stattdessen führt er weiter seine bizarren Sex-Fantasien aus: „Das Zimmer wird nur von zwei Kerzen beleuchtet und in meiner besten Nazi-Stimme sage ich langsam: Du gehst nirgendwo hin, mein Liebchen. Heute Nacht bis du meine Gefangene der Liebe.“

Die Trennung

Sowohl Elizabeth Haysom als auch Jens Söring geben später ein Geständnis ab. Söring hofft, als Sohn eines Diplomaten Immunität zu genießen. Mit seinem Geständnis will er seine ebenfalls beschuldigte Freundin vor der Todesstrafe bewahren. „Wenn ich nach Deutschland gehe und dort verurteilt werde, gehe ich nur für ein paar Jahre hinter Gitter”, schreibt Söring.

Und weiter: „Du wirst schnell auf Bewährung freikommen. Besonders dann, wenn sie meine frühe Haftentlassung berücksichtigen. In wenigen Jahren werden wir also hoffentlich frei und zusammen sein.“

Doch dann widerruft Söring sein Geständnis, Elizabeth Haysom trennt sich von ihm – wieder per Brief. Von da an beschuldigen sich die beiden gegenseitig, den Mord begangen zu haben. „Meine Eltern mussten sterben, weil Jens und ich voneinander besessen waren und er war eifersüchtig auf alles andere in meinem Leben“, sagt Haysom später vor Gericht.

Justizskandal – oder nicht?

Bis heute weist der Fall zahlreiche Unklarheiten und Fehler im Beweisverfahren auf. Trotzdem hat die Gnadenkommission aus Virginia – trotz der aktuellen Entscheidung – keinen Zweifel an der Schuld Sörings.

Die Mitglieder der Kommission stellen ausdrücklich fest, dass „die jahrelange, erschöpfende Untersuchung“ ergeben habe, dass „Sörings Behauptung seiner Unschuld keine Grundlage hat.“ Dies berichtet die „FAZ“. Von einem Prozess, der die unfassbaren Schwächen des US-amerikanischen Justizsystems entlarve, könne keine Rede sein, so das Blatt. Der Autor, der selber als Verteidiger für Gefangene im Todestrakt texanischer Gefängnisse arbeitete, erklärt ganz im Gegenteil, dass Söring einen rechtsstaatlichen Prozess gehabt habe – und darüber hinaus von mehreren Richtern geprüft worden sei.

Erste Politiker sind mit der Entscheidung dennoch nicht einverstanden. Ben Cline, republikanischer Kongressabgeordneter des Bundesstaats Virginia, sagte er, sei „schockiert und empört“ darüber. „Die Entscheidung, die nicht auf Reue der Mörder für ihre Taten, sondern auf angeblichen Kostenvorteilen für Virginia basiert, ist eine Beleidigung der Familien der Opfer und des geltenden Rechts.“

Zeven jaar cel voor Limburgse serieverkrachter op Tinder

Zeven jaar cel voor Limburgse serieverkrachter op Tinder

Minstens 15 slachtoffers heeft Fouad K. gemaakt, via datingapps als Tinder en Twoo. Hij krijgt zeven jaar cel.

De bal ging aan het rollen in september 2016, toen een slachtoffer van Fouad K. naar de politie stapte. De man had haar op de carpoolparking in Halen bestolen en aangerand. Drie weken na haar klacht, konden de speurders de man inrekenen. Ze bleek verre van het enige slachtoffer.

Telkens gebruikte hij dezelfde strategie: hij verleidde zijn slachtoffers op datingsites en bij het eerste afspraakje gaf hij hen een cocktail van limoncello, xtc en slaappillen, waarna hij hun geld, gsm en bankkaarten stal, en hen aanrandde of verkrachtte. Fouad K. maakte zo minstens vijftien slachtoffers.

Even leek het zelfs alsof Fouad K. 230 slachtoffers gemaakt zou hebben. Zo’n vaart liep het niet, maar in zijn gsm stonden wel de gsm-nummers van 230 vrouwen. Toch valt niet uit te sluiten dat hij meer slachtoffers maakte dan tot nu toe bekend. Vermoedelijk deden heel wat vrouwen (nog) geen aangifte.

De correctionele rechtbank van Hasselt heeft de serieverkrachter een celstraf gegeven. Daarnaast moet hij zich nog tien jaar ter beschikking houden van de strafuitvoeringsrechtbank en is hij tien jaar zijn rechten kwijt. Aan zijn slachtoffers moet hij een schadevergoeding betalen van in totaal 27.084 euro, vermeerderd met intresten en gerechtskosten.
