It's not true that our borders aren't safe' - Angelina Jolie reacts to Trump's travel ban

Actress Angelina Jolie in a recent op-ed for the New York Times has weighed in on President Donald Trump's immigration ban, accusing him of ignoring facts about how refugees get into the U.S.
"It is simply not true that our borders are overrun or that refugees are admitted to the United States without close scrutiny. Refugees are subject to the highest level of screening of any category of traveler to the United States' she wrote.
Angelina works with the UN's High Commissioner for Refugees. She's also adopted 3 children born outside the country and she says she understands security from terrorism is of the utmost importance, but thinks "our response must be measured and should be based on facts, not fear."

In the article, she never mentions Trump by name, but says she'd want any president to work with people of all faiths around the world to make all nations more secure.

Ivanka Trump's brand dropped from luxury department store, Nordstrom

Nordstrom has revealed that they will stop carrying Ivanka Trump's brand. This comes after the Grab Your Wallet campaign, which called for shoppers to boycott retailers that carry Ivanka Trump or Donald Trump goods.

The department store chain which offers thousands of brands revealed that they decided to remove Ivanka's brand from their site due to poor sales.

“We’ve said all along we make buying decisions based on performance. In this case, based on the brand’s performance, we’ve decided not to buy it for this season,” a statement from the company read.
However, some believe the brand might have been pulled off due to pressure from the #GrabYourWallet campaign. The co-founder of the campaign, Shannon Coulter, felt so too and gleefully shared the news on her Twitter accounts, thanking supporters of the campaign for making it happen.
“I am absolutely thrilled, and I know the vast majority of Grab Your Wallet participants will be as well,” said Shannon Coulter.
Nordstrom was one of the first retail partners to stock Ivanka's footwears, and they had earlier faced criticisms from the Grab Your Wallet campaigners who tried to force the store to drop brands that belong to the Trumps.

In reaction to the criticisms, in November last year, Pete Nordstroms, Co-president of Nordstrom, defended its decision to sell Trump products.
“This is a sharply divisive subject. No matter what we do, we are going to end up disappointing some of our customers. Every single brand we offer is evaluated on their results -- if people don’t buy it, we won’t sell it.” Nordstrom said.
The company went on to post a response on Twitter to an open letter calling for Nordstrom to stop selling the Trump brand.
“We hope that offering a vendor’s products isn’t misunderstood as us taking a political position; we’re not. We recognize our customers can make choices about what they purchase based on personal views and we’ll continue to give them options.”
If the statement by Nordstrom is anything to go by, then it appears the customers made good on their threat and stopped buying, leading to a drop in sales, hence the decision by Nordstrom.

106yr old Brazilian granny gets engaged to her 66yr old

It's never too old for love. Brazilian pensioner, Valdemira Rodrigues de Oliveira is believed to be the world's oldest person to get engaged after she said 'yes' to her 66yr old lover Aparecido Dias Jacob in a ceremony last Saturday. The lovebirds defied doctors' ban to go ahead with the engagement.

Medics had assessed their health and age and warned the duo, known as Valda and Jaco, would not be able to cope with living on their own.

But after three years together, the senior romantics, who have separate rooms at Nossa Senhora Fatima retirement home in Pirassununga, south east Brazil, were determined to prove age is no barrier to finding your soul mate. The elderly sweethearts exchanged engagement rings in a betrothal service organised by volunteers under an initiative called the 'Project of Dreams' and the event was no puny affair. It was lavishly decorated with a four-tier cake, flowers, cupid ornaments and scattered rose petals. Valda looked her best in a white dress with a fancy in her hair, pearls around her neck, nails painted and comfortable slippers.

She walked down the aisle with her Zimmer-frame decorated with roses.

Speaking about her love for her future husband, the centenarian said:
"I fell in love with him. I like him a lot. If he dies, I die too."
The two lovers have never been engaged and most of Valda's relatives have died while Jaco has lost touch with his family. At the altar, the couple couldn't hold back from sealing the occasion with a passionate kiss before taking their vows in front of the 150 invited guests.

After a short message and prayer, the happy couple said "yes" to stay loyal to each other and exchanged engagement rings. The lovestruck pair met at the residential home for the elderly in 2014 and it was love at first sight for Jaco, who suffers from paralysis of the left arm. He has been living in the home for 19 years after being homeless and unemployed.

He said:
"I fell in love with Valda from the moment I saw her. I know she's a little older than me, but that doesn't matter because she makes me really happy.
"I asked her to marry me and we always believed it would happen but getting engaged is a step forward for us right now."
The inseparable couple spend all day with each other, chatting, eating their meals together and sitting side by side in the home.
"I know it's not going to happen but I would have loved to be able to wash Jaco's clothes, cook his meals and look after him like a wife," Valda said.More photos below...

Chelsea and Tottenham are the best- Man City's Pep Guardiola declares

Former Barca and Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola has admitted that rival clubs Chelsea and Tottenham are the best clubs in the league, despite the transfer war chest he was given last summer to complete deals for Saido Mane, Nolito, Gundogan, John Stones and Gabriel Jesus.
Guardiola, upon assumption of coaching duties at Man City following glorious reigns at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, enjoyed a ten game winning streak, but loses in recent matches have damaged his club's EPL title ambitions and the Spaniard has now admitted his team isnt the best anymore and he is to be blamed.

“Tottenham and Chelsea are the best, how they make the movements — especially Spurs with Dembele and Eriksen and how they move in respect to the others," he said to reporters.
"Both teams know exactly what they have to do and still we are not in that process. Our inconsistency is for that reason.
“I think we learned a lot. We improved a lot in the beginning, and then we stopped. "Maybe it looks like I’m being humble, or shy or something like that, but it was a little bit my mistake.
“I’m pretty sure we started really good in many, many things and now we stopped. You have to re-start that. Because our build-up is so fundamental in my vision of football.
“Sometimes we have to do more of the same thing, and when you do that a lot you have to change the variations. I believed we had it, but the players did not believe we had it.
“So I have to adapt to them. Sometimes, with all the games, you don’t have time but that’s why it’s nice.“If I had the feeling everybody is done, it would be boring. So when I see the games and see the review of the games I say, 'Wow, we still have a lot to do!’, and that’s why it’s nice.
“I still have the ambition — unfinished business. Still I have many many things to do and when we get it right it will be better definitely. Maybe we won’t fly but I am pretty sure we will be a better team.”

Nicki Minaj's home burgled by thieves

Read the story from TMZ below...

Nicki Minaj is about $200k worse for wear after a burglary at her L.A. mansion ... TMZ has learned. Law enforcement sources tell us the 11,500 sq. ft palace was totally trashed on the inside. The suspect or suspects knocked over and flipped furniture and items all over the house ... almost as if they were frantically looking for something.
They were successful. We're told the burglars made off with a ton of jewelry and other property, and there were clear signs of forced entry in spots around the house.

Nicki's team reported the burglary earlier this week. She was out of town. We're told police are looking for any surveillance video of the culprit, but as of now ... no suspect
