California donut eating contest.

By ALLAN TAWAI

It was a day of celebration for many North Americans on Friday (June 1) as National Donut Day was celebrated across the country.

In Hollywood, some people took the celebration to the next level by competing in a donuts eating competition outside the TCL Chinese Theatre. The objective was to try and beat the world record of 55 donuts eaten in 8 minutes, set by eating champion Joey Chestnut.

Speaking to press, Lieutenant colonel Kyle Smith of salvation army said that the eating competition was meant to bring attention to the fact that the Salvation Army is seeking to help veterans by trying to raise a little bit of money to help them.

“We help in so many different ways but want to help the body, the mind and the soul. And we did it eating donuts.” Said Kyle Smith

Although Chestnut was absent from this year’s competition, rival competitive eater Matthew Stonie  scooped the prize but only managed to consume 48 donuts. He blamed his lack of donuts consumption on issues he had the night before.

“I was getting nose bleeds all night and the dry air in my room or something so it is what it is. I did the best I could.” “I’ve been around the block. I know how to eat food but you know, for the past couple of weeks I’ve been getting donuts and trying out different techniques, getting my palette used to the flavor and texture.

While Stonie seemed happy with his win, other contestants looked pained after the competition finished – and probably won’t touch another donut until this time next year.

Major League master of ceremony (MC) Sam Barclay said that Joey Chestnut is still the world record holder.

“Well the world record still stands at 55. Today the winner, Matthew Stonie ate 48 Bakemark donuts in just 8 minutes.”

VIDEO: Mystery as Kenyan woman found dead in a car on the highway with rope around her neck

Published

After reports Sunday morning of a car stopped on the left side of southbound Loop 101 in Phoenix, Arizona, a Kenyan woman was found unresponsive in the car with a rope around her neck and later pronounced dead, the Department of Public Safety said.

The woman was identified as 29-year-old Stella W. Kiarie. She was an employee of the Arizona Department of Health Services where she worked with refugees.

Officials said Monday that after seeing there was a car seat in the woman’s car, detectives went to her house because they were concerned about the whereabouts of the child. Detectives found a 1-year-old baby boy alone at the house.

The Arizona Department of Child Safety responded and took over care for the child.

DHS also released a statement Monday confirming Kiarie’s death:

All of Stella’s colleagues at Arizona Department of Health Services were saddened by this news and this devastating loss. Stella was a kind, compassionate and important member of this team. Our deepest condolences are with her family and friends at this difficult time.

DPS says the HOV and two other lanes were closed four hours as the scene was under investigation.

No other details were released about the woman’s death. It is uncertain if it is being investigated as a suicide or homicide.

The incident remains under investigation.

101 and Bell Rd

Upon arrival, troopers found a white vehicle crashed against the concrete median wall. The car had some damage to its passenger side.

Troopers determined that it had been traveling southbound on the highway when it crashed.

They then entered the car through an unlocked door and found an unconscious female in the driver’s seat, later determined to be Kiarie.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Kiarie was found with injuries that “were not consistent” with the minor crash with the median wall.

The Associated Press reported Sunday that troopers at the scene reported finding the woman “with a rope around her neck.”

A child safety seat was found in the vehicle, so detectives went to Kiarie’s home and found a 1-year-old boy by himself. He was taken into custody by the Arizona Department of Child Safety.

There has always been debate over the issue of men leaving women they started from the bottom with.

It is a sensitive area and women often accuse men of deeming them worthless after they start making good money.Men have always maintained that this is not the case and it is down to character.
