A British student has won the sympathy of others after posting pictures of his broken nose and blood-covered face online. According to him, this mess was made by her girlfriend. Named Kathryn Mahoney, the authorities had her arrested on suspicion of assault.
Reports say that Kathryn punched Ben Kebbell in the face and stomach after he wanted to break up with her. The 19-year-old guy shared a gory image with his nose bent out of shape. It was first posted on Snapchat with the caption:
The Katie thing comes with a broken nose lol.
Kathryn is facing charges after she punched and broked Kebbell’s nose.
The photo of Kebbell posted on Snapchat earned the ire of people online.
Although Ben saw the funny side of the incident, his injuries did not stop him from receiving treatment at a local hospital. The two met while studying together at the Fairfield University in Connecticut. They even trained together for the school’s swimming team. Kebbell came from the Isle of Wight, while Mahoney was a native of New Hampshire.
Kathryn has accumulated a huge following on social media, thanks to her career.
She works as a part-time model in a clothing company called The Roosevelts.
But it seems she will have a hard time continuing her modelling career after this mess.
Kathryn’s profile on The Roosevelt’s official site states:
This 19-year-old model from just outside Boston does it all, she grew up playing every sport you can imagine and has continued her athletic career in college.
This athlete has been crushing Instagram, and now we started a photographer/model partnership that is starting to blow up. Her modeling career is just going up and before you notice you are going to see her face in GQ and obviously in Sports Illustrated.
Unfortunately for her, she was arrested by the police due to the assault she did on Kebbell. Eventually, a rather different photo of her – not in swimwear – was released and published.
It was basically a tearful mugshot of the model.
Mahoney is said to have laid into Kebbell after he came around to her student accommodation to end the relationship. Angered upon hearing, she punched him twice before he could even grab her by the shoulders in an effort to stop her attacks.
Kebbell then rushed to his friend’s dormitory to seek sanctuary. It is unclear why the couple decided to part ways, though you can tell from his injury that breaking up with her was a good decision to make. Mahoney has been charged with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct, with a bail set at $1,500.
Uber to Exit Southeast Asia for Stake in Rival Company Grab
Uber’s stake could become smaller.
Uber Technologies Inc. has reached an agreement in principle to sell its operations in Southeast Asia to local rival Grab Inc. This exit comes in exchange of as much as 30% stake in Grab, according to reports. Uber and Grab have yet to issue official statements.
The two companies are reportedly ironing out the details of the deal and a final agreement may be reached soon. It is still possible that Uber's stake could become smaller. The deal will involve Uber's major assets in the region, but it could possibly exclude small pieces of the Southeast Asian operations. It will be similar to the deal Uber made with Chinese ridesharing company Didi Chuxing in 2016.
The competition between the two has been costly.
Reports say Uber was spending about $200 million annually to take on Grab and another upstart in the region, PT Go-Jek Indonesia, a motorcyle-taxi service. Uber has reportedly spent over $10 billion since it was founded in 2009....
“Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli Sentenced to 7 Years in Prison, Cries in Court
Gone was the cocky persona that earned him so much hate around the world.
Probably one of the most hated man around for the past couple of years, pharmaceutical executive Martin Shrkeli was sentenced to 7 years in prison for defrauding investors in hedge funds.
His smirking face in previous court appearances grabbed headlines worldwide. He had no qualms trolling his critics. He earned unprecendented hate for defending the whopping 5000 percent increase of HIV drug Daraprim.
His conviction in a securities fraud case made Shkreli lose his cocky persona. He cried when his sentence was handed down.
“I want the people who came here today to support me to understand one thing, the only person to blame for me being here today is me. I took down Martin Shkreli,” he said to U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto. He apologized to investors and said that he hopes to make amends with them....
Over 500 Canadian Doctors Protest Pay Raise, Say They’re Already Earning Too Much
And they’re doing it for a good cause.
While in many parts of the world people are complaining about being underpaid, doctors in Quebec are actually protesting against getting a pay raise - but for good reason. The doctors have been joined by other medical specialists, residents, and medical students in signing a letter against earning more.
The medical professionals ask that the money be reallocated to benefit nurses and patients instead. Close to 800 individuals have signed the letter since it was released in late February.
The doctors hope the redistribution of resources can help overburdened nurses, clerks, and patients.
The letter, originally written in French and published by the group Médecins Québécois Pour le Régime (MQRP), reads:...
