INCREDIBLE VIDEO: You won’t believe what this baby is capable of

Published

on

A Video of the rosy-cheeked toddler pulling herself up climbing walls zipped across the Internet this week, drawing millions of views on Facebook in just a few days.
Her parents, Rachael and Zak Farmer, are competitive climbers who always hoped she’d join in the family pastime. Ellie was climbing with her mother throughout her pregnancy and has been a fixture at their local gym in Flagstaff, Arizona, her entire life.
“She’s really been part of the climbing community since birth,” said Zak Farmer, 31. “When she was first opening her eyes, she was at the gym, seeing climbers climb.”
Ellie was climbing before she could walk and scaled her first wall around 8 months.
“I kind of imagined when I had Ellie that she was going to be this calm baby, and we’d always go hiking in the woods, and she’d watch the butterflies go by,” said Rachael Farmer, 28. “That’s really nice, and we definitely have those moments together, but she is a really active kid.”
Her father built an 8-foot climbing wall in the bedroom beside her crib. (Now, because she’s such an ace climber, it stands beside her toddler bed.) Ellie is typically at the gym with her parents about five days a week, and some of that time is dedicated just to her interests: hanging, gripping and scrambling up kid-size walls.

Ugandan comedian Anne Kansime has in an interview with Massawe Japanni revealed some of the worst comments people said about her.

Some people were trying to figure out why I did not have kids with my ex-husband Gerald Ojok.

She adds that despite the fact that it was all lies, (she has her uterus intact. Her only issue is that she had no way of proving it to her critics.

So they said that I had sold my uterus for fame. The sad thing is even if its not true there is no way you can be able to show people that your uterus is till intact.

She sarcastically adds that if she had sold her uterus she would have no qualms directing others to where she did the ‘transaction’.

I can direct people who have a uterus and feel like they want to sell it for fame, to where they said I sold mine.

Anne Kansime

Anne Kansime who is well known for her show ‘Don’t Mess With Kansime’ is in Kenya to look for talent for the recently launched East Africa Got Talent.

She is the host of the talent show.

After her breakup with Ojok, Kansime hooked up with rapper Sky Lanta.

‘I fell in love with toyboy with body of a god…but now I’m broke and stranded’

Published

on

When the handsome young stranger clicked “like” on one of her Facebooksnaps, Claire Alcantara felt her heart flutter. She had no idea then that pursuing her admirer would leave her stranded in the Dominican Republic and drained of her £40,000 (Sh5.2 million) life savings.

Claire, 46, admits she ignored the howls of protest from her three daughters to begin a cyber romance with student Franklin Alcantara – who is 12 years her junior.

And today she reveals how their marriage ended in disaster.Speaking from the Caribbean shack she now calls home, she says: “I’m heartbroken and penniless.”Claire was so besotted she even ditched her British passport for Irish citizenship to secure her beau a spousal visa and move him into her home in the West Midlands.Two years ago she sold up and moved to his country, where she renovated Franklin’s family home.

But things soured when Franklin went missing.Claire says: “He told me he was moving to Punta Cana to build a hotel as part of his civil engineering course, but he actually went back to England.”She says his family evicted her after she reported him to immigration.

The former teaching assistant is desperate to return to her hometown of Dudley, but says she can’t afford the flight. Now, she says her husband is “living illegally in the UK”.It was in 2013 that they began messaging on Facebook. Claire says: “He was good looking and had the body of a god.

Soon we were Skyping daily. I’d just come out of a terrible divorce so it felt exciting.”After six months, she applied for Franklin to visit the UK on a tourist visa but the application was rejected.So she flew to the Caribbean for a month, where she says she started spending money on his family home. Once she returned to the UK, the couple decided to marry.

She admits: “My daughters said, ‘don’t do it’.” But they married in the Dominican Republic in October 2013.Her attempts to bring Franklin to the UK were repeatedly rejected by British immigration, so she applied for an Irish passport, the country of her father’s birth.She says: “I was advised UK law would override EU law so I decided to give up my British citizenship so I was solely Irish – or an EU citizen living in the UK. He was granted a UK visa as spouse of an EU worker.

”In June 2014 she moved him into her home with her adult daughters, and opened a “joint account” in the Dominican Republic to fund the building of a flat on top of Franklin’s father’s house.“I spent £15,000,” she says.

In December 2017 they sold up in the UK and moved there for good.Claire says she bought Franklin a £10,000 Jeep – and continued transferring cash to their “joint account”.But after a series of rows, in March 2018 Claire contacted the British Embassy for advice about her rights and says she was told that their “joint” account was solely in his name. “I fainted with shock,” she says.

“When I confronted Franklin, he claimed it was a misunderstanding.”Days later, he announced plans to work away for three months. She says: “Soon three months became six. I started to get suspicious.”In December 2018, she discovered he was living in England with another woman.

She has now found a “very low-paid” job in Santo Domingo and is staying with a new boyfriend, but is desperate to get home.She says: “I spent all my money on Franklin and can’t afford the flight. I should never have sacrificed a thing for him.”Back in the UK, Franklin reveals he is to be deported next month.

He says of his wife: “We had a good relationship in England, then Claire said we had to go to Dominican Republic because she couldn’t live with her daughter.”I wanted to stay in England.“We lived in a house with my dad.

She was the one that said let’s do the floor, the window bars, the paint.”It was about £6,000, not £15,000. Then she brought her daughter and they were always fighting.“I lied and said I was going to Punta Cana. If I told her I was going to England, Claire would have said no because it was too cold.”Yes, I had a new girlfriend, but she dumped me after Claire contacted her.”
