Sup Travellers?! In the wake of the tragic attacks in Paris that claimed over one hundred lives people all over the world have been changing their profile pictures to the French Flag.

It's a gesture of condolence to the people of Paris and I support it 100% but one French woman in particular isn't so impressed by the gesture.

Charlotte Farhan, editor of the online magazine Art Saves Lives International announced she will not be changing her profile picture and believes it would be wrong to only change it after the terrorist attacks in Paris – which killed 129 people.

In a Facebook post, Charlotte stated that if she supported this it would be ‘wrong’ and if she did, she would have to do this every time a horrific attack took place.

This comes at a time where Facebook is also being criticized for not giving people the option of overlaying their profile picture with the colors of the Lebanese flag, after another Isis attack on Thursday killed 43 people in Beirut.

The French editor also urged people to value every human life, attacked by extremist beliefs and not to get involved in the campaign as they would become part of an “us and them” mentality, which is ultimately what groups like Isis want.

She said: "I won’t be changing my profile to the French flag even though I am French and from Paris. The reason for this is that if I did this for only Paris this would be wrong. If I did this for every attack on the world, I would have to change my profile everyday several times a day. My heart is with the world, no borders, no hierarchy, I hold every human’s life with value who is attacked by extremist beliefs whether they are based on religion, prejudice or profit! Don’t be part of the “us and them” mentality which the war mongers want you to do!”

So I get what she's saying and I understand why she would refrain from overlaying her profile picture with the French flag. However, I don't fully agree with her calling the gesture and I quote "wrong".

I get that there are many other territories in the world under siege by ISIS and if it were possible to show support and love to all of them I'm sure that a lot of people would. However let's take into consideration the amount of media coverage that the attacks in Paris have been getting as opposed to the attacks in Beirut. People care about what they know and right now everyone knows what happened in Paris not so much what happened in Beirut or any other territory that was attacked. So it's only natural for more people to care about what happened in Paris and for that I don't blame them. I blame the media. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed

Sup Travellers?! I think I can safely assume that everyone reading this knows who Charlie Sheen is. He has been off the radar for quite some time but back in 2003 he started acting on a show called "Two and a Half Men" and since then he has become a household name.

But just this morning Charlie Sheen made headlines for something other than his acting prowess. On the Today Show with Matt Lauer he admitted that he is HIV positive.

"I am here to admit that I am HIV positive," he said.

Sheen also revealed to Matt Lauer that he had paid "enough to take it into the millions" to keep people from going public about his illness.

"I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks and of sub-truths," he said, adding he was diagnosed four years ago in 2011 which coincides with his infamous “meltdown” that resulted in him being fired from the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men..

He said when he revealed his HIV status to friends "the truth became treason", leading to "blackmail and extortion and a circle of deceit".

"I trusted them, they were in my inner circle and thought they could be helpful. My trust turned to their treason," he said, adding a prostitute took a picture of his medication and threatened to sell it to newspapers.

"I think I release myself from this prison today," he said.

He admitted that his use of drink and drugs was a "bad decision" but said it was "impossible" that he would have passed HIV on to anyone else.

There is definitely a stigma surrounding HIV but it usually isn't a death sentence for people who can afford to pay for treatment. Sheen even boasts that the HIV is undetectable in his blood due to antretroviral drugs but the sad thing about having HIV is that it is with you for life [unless a cure is found].

Sheen has admitted on multiple occasions of sleeping with up to 5000 women and a lot of them are prostitutes. So I don't know why so many people are surprised at this revelation. You can't be THAT sexually active and expect not to catch at least one STD. Unluckily for Sheen, the STD that he caught is the most dangerous. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.

Sup Travellers?! So....Caitlyn Jenner won Glamour Magazine's woman of the year award and a lot of people are not too happy about it. I mean --- there are so many other women in the world who deserved that award much more than him....her... or whatever he or she is. 

Some may argue that Caitlyn Jenner broke barriers by advocating social progressiveness with her sex change and whatnot. That's all cool but in my book she isn't even a woman. She's just Bruce Jenner parading as a female in an attempt to get more fame and attention and he [or she] just robbed a deserving woman of the award.

Who's that deserving woman, you ask? Well, according to the husband of a heroic policewoman, Moira Smith, who ran back into Tower Two on 9/11 – and died trying to save people inside: "At a time when we have women in the armed forces fighting and dying for our country, heroic doctors fighting deadly diseases, women police officers and firefighters putting their lives on the line for total strangers, brave women overcoming life threatening diseases…the list of possibilities goes on…is this the best you could do?"

Moira Smith was given the woman of the year award by Glamour Magazine posthumously in December 2001 for her heroism. 

However her husband, who has possession of the award decided to give the award back after he found out that Caitlyn Jenner won it this year calling it ‘an insult’ that the award was given to Jenner this year.

Glamour magazine responded, "We were proud to honor his wife in 2001, and we stand by our decision to honor Caitlyn Jenner."

Now whatever opinion you hold about the LGBT community is yours and I'm not here to dispute that. I'm simply taking the side of Moira Smith's husband in this one. Caitlyn Jenner wasn't the best choice. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.

Sup Travellers?! The tragic attacks that occurred in Paris last week is very disconcerting news. Paris has always been a city that I associated with peace and LOVE but now, the scars of terror will forever be draped onto its romance and that sucks.

What did the people of Paris ever do to deserve this?

The death toll, last time I checked, was 129, and my condolences go out to the families of those who lost loved ones in the attacks.

One guy in particular was almost among the dead on that day but thanks to his cellphone he is still alive and able to return to his family.

According to NBC News a man fleeing the violence outside Paris' Stade de France on Friday credits his cellphone with saving his live. 

A man identified only as Sylvestre says he was at the stadium when a bomb went off nearby. 

"Everything exploded," he says. "I felt the projectiles and everything." Sylvestre was running with his phone to his ear when it was hit by a metal bolt, according to Reuters. NBC reports it's a good thing Sylvestre had his phone out. "Otherwise my head would have been busted," he says. According to Metro, Sylvestre's Samsung ended up with a broken screen and large dent. And he didn't get away unscathed either, with NBC reporting he was shot in the foot and had a bullet graze his torso while he was running. Sylvestre says he wouldn't wish the experience on anyone.

I'm tempted to call the man lucky but it's difficult to say the word 'luck' to someone who just experienced the merciless killing of dozens upon dozens of his people. No man should ever have to experience that and I hope that the people responsible for the attacks pay for what they did. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.

Sup Travellers?! I have written about a lot of unbelievable stories on here before but this one, all hands down, takes the cake. I mean --- how does one girl get raped 43,200 times? My head can't even wrap around that number.

But the story is true and the girl who experienced the unthinkable horror is 23-year-old Karla Jacinto. She believes that she has been raped around 43,200 times, meaning she was forced to have sex with at least 30 men every day for four years  after being coerced into Mexico’s human trafficking industry, CNN reports.

She is now speaking out about her torment at the hands of ruthless organised crime rings in an attempt to help other sex trafficking victims.

After going through this horrific ordeal, she has shared her story of survival at public events and conferences including a talk with Pope Francis at the Vatican and speaking at United States Congress to deter young girls from being lured away from their homes.

At the age of just 12, she recalled being targeted by a 22-year-old trafficker who took her away from her home in Tenancingo in the state of Tlaxcala promising gifts, money and fast cars.

Ms Jacinto told CNN that she lived with her trafficker for three months before being transported to one of the nation’s largest cities, Guadalajara before being forced into prostitution.

She said: "I started at 10am and finished at midnight. Some men would laugh at me because I was crying. I had to close my eyes so that that I wouldn’t see what they were doing to me, so that I wouldn’t feel anything."

During her horrific ordeal, Ms Jacinto was also brutally attacked by her trafficker after spotting kiss marks on her neck from a customer.

"He started beating me with a chain in all of my body. He punched me with his fists, he kicked me, pulled my hair, spit at me in the face… he also burned me with the iron."

She also went on to claim that a rescue operation by police descended into a shocking turn of events, with officers filming the girls as young as 10 in ‘compromising positions’.

According to the International Organisation for Migration, there are a staggering estimation of 20,000 trafficking victims every year in Mexico.

The Guardian reported that a study in 2010 by the University of Tlaxcala found that 20 per cent of children in the town aspires to be a pimp, while two-thirds know at least one family member or friend who worked as a trafficker or pimp.

Some might call her weak for letting all those men rape her but I think she is a girl of a great strength because with the absence of many options during the ordeal she survived it. She endured it painfully and is now able to help other girls who find themselves in a similar predicament.

I know it's probably going to be tough for her but I really hope that she can go on and live a normal life after this. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.

Some celebrities do their charitable work out in the open. Others, like Nelly, do it a bit more quietly.

The rap star from St. Louis, Missouri has been helping run the ex'treme Institute by Nelly, a program designed to help students get business, entertainment and beat making educations. But Nelly, unlike many entertainers in his position, prefers to loan his resources and ideas to the institute, not his image.

“It’s not about the hoo-ha, it’s about the silent assassins,” he told Hello Beautiful. “I try to do it through education. The only way we’re going to get this is to elevate. We have to get the kids to go out of these communities. Graduate. Get the knowledge. Come back to the community and then they can run it because they understand the people and understand the severity of the situation.”

Carl Nappa, the school’s executive director and an accomplished recording engineer, told St. Louis Mag that he saw Nelly's institute as the perfect way to prepare an artists for the entertainment industry.

Via St. Louis Mag:

As Nappa sees it, a student with a degree from the ex’treme Institute will enter today’s market, where artists also need to be entrepreneurs, versed in every aspect of the music business, with several advantages. He will have confidence, music-industry connections, and a CD of material that he recorded, the program’s capstone project.

The school was opened in late 2011 and has continued to grow since. After media criticized Nelly for taking time to arrive in St. Louis after the Ferguson shootings, people defending him citing sources that he has sent two students to college every year for the last ten years. Then, when he did arrive in St. Louis, he announced the Mike Brown scholarship.

Bravo to Nelly for being a charitable celebrity and doing it without making it about himself.
