VietJet is the country’s only privately-owned airline and is about to go public very soon. The initial public offering of VietJet Aviation Joint Stock Co. is about to make Thao at least $1.37 billion richer. The said airline will go public in the next three months. Thao owns 95% of VietJet along with her stake in Dragon City, a 65-hectare development in Ho Chi Minh.

According to Thao, "You have the right to wear anything you like either the bikini or the traditional ao dai."

Because of the bikini-clad stewardesses, VietJet was able to grab more than 30% of the industry’s market share and is continuing to rise up to this day. We won’t be surprised if it continues to rise up against Vietnam Airlines, the country’s national carrier. More flights might have to be added then.

Thao is poised to make at least $1.37 billion when VietJet goes public in the IPO.

VietJet has been popular because of its very young flight attendants who wear bikinis for their inaugural flights to beach locations and are also featured on calendars wearing the same costumes. According to Thao, by wearing bikinis, the staff are empowering images in the conservative culture of the country.

Father Wants Justice For Daughter Who Died of Dengue After Dengvaxia Vaccine

“My daughter would still alive if she wasn’t vaccinated,” the father lamented.

By

We’ve recently heard the controversy regarding the Dengvaxia vaccine. Hailed as the world’s first vaccine against dengue, French pharmaceutical Sanofi Pasteur came up with the revolutionary vaccine.

Eventually, however, the manufacturer admitted that Dengvaxia may pose harmful effects. This is where a huge problem lies since over 700,000 children have already been vaccinated in the Philippines alone – and netizens are understandably outraged about it.

Now a Filipino father has recently surfaced, saying his daughter died of severe dengue after being given the said vaccine.

According to reports, Nelson De Guzman is seeking justice for the death of his daughter Christine Mae, a grade 5 student who was vaccinated with Dengvaxia and later died of severe dengue.

The father has since approached the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC) to ask the Department of Justice (DOJ) for help in examining “the bodies of three children believed to have died due to the effects of Dengvaxia shots,” a report said.

In an interview, the father said someone should be held responsible for the program.

“Someone should really be held liable. My daughter would still alive if she wasn’t vaccinated,” lamented De Guzman.

A GMA news article further tells us Christine “had no history of dengue infection”. However, she eventually developed severe headache and fever. She passed away a day after she was rushed to the hospital. She received a Dengvaxia shot 6 months earlier.

De Guzman further said that they have documents proving their daughter has been vaccinated with Dengvaxia.

He said:

“We have her card.”

Now a year has passed since their daughter’s death and, so far, the family has not received any assistance from the health department or from the local government.

Meanwhile, Sanofi has clarified that Dengvaxia can only be beneficial in preventing dengue for those who already had serotypes virus in the past.

Moreover, the company defended that the vaccine “does not contain any viruses that can make people ill with dengue or severe dengue.”

The Department of Health has since halted its vaccination program and the Food and Drug Administration of the Philippines has ordered suspending Dengvaxia’s sale, distribution, and marketing. The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) is also conducting an investigation to determine who should be held accountable for putting the public’s lives in danger.

Bullies Who Drove Teen To Commit Suicide Are Now Tormenting Her Grieving Parents

The parents are now getting a taste of what their daughter had been through.

By

Bullying continues to be a serious issue for kids and teens, especially now that the Internet has become a tool that bullies can use. These bullies have somehow become even more heartless as they not only target their victims but also their parents. The Avilas can attest to that.

The Avilas had to deal with the difficulty of losing their 13-year-old girl, Rosalie, to bullies. The young girl had been made fun of for two years that one day she decided she had enough and attempted to take her own life. Frank and Charlene Avila of Loma Linda, California not only had to deal with the heartbreak of Rosalie’s death, but are also facing the bullies themselves.

Rosalie hanged herself in her bedroom last week after suffering from bullying for years.

Rosalie committed suicide last week, Nov. 28 in their home in California. Frank found her body after hearing her screams in the bedroom. The Avilas then rushed their girl to the hospital, where Rosalie was in critical condition. Unfortunately, it was too late for her. She was on life support but then it was switched off this week.

In her suicide note, Rosalie apologized to her parents.

Rosalie’s organs will be donated.

Rosalie’s death was just the start of something even more unbelievably heartbreaking for Frank and Charlene. The death of their daughter continues to haunt them as bullies are now sending them memes about Rosalie’s death on social media. As reported, Frank and Charlene received a meme that had Rosalie’s face on it and read, “hey mom. Next time don’t tuck me in this,” beside a photo of a bed and Rosalie smiling.

Underneath the meme, it read, “Tuck me in THIS,” with a photo of an open grave and the girl’s face superimposed on the body of a boy pointing toward the grave. News outlets did not release the photo out of respect for the grieving family. “For you to do that, I mean, you’re heartless … you have no compassion,” Charlene said about the bullies.

Rosalie attended Mesa View middle school.

The Avilas noticed Rosalie had been reclusive for the past few months.

Frank and Charlene had noticed that Rosalie had been more withdrawn. They then had her see a counselor after they found out that she cut herself. The parents were aware that she was being bullied but didn’t realize the extent of it until they, themselves, started receiving the memes.

Rosalie had carried with her a journal, in which she poured her heart out during those years. Freddie recalled reading an entry in which Rosalie wrote that she had been called ugly and that kids made fun of her teeth.

The Avilas didn’t think that their “excellent student” daughter would consider suicide. Charlene is calling out to people that something should be done about bullying.

“Now I know what my daughter was up against. Something needs to be done.”

Frank, on the other hand, blames the school for not doing anything and for letting bullies do what they do. He said he had done everything he could yet no one responded.

31 Migrants Eaten By Sharks During Rescue Operation In Libya

31 African migrants were reportedly eaten by sharks but experts believe it was just a cover up of abuse.

African people are experiencing all kinds of horrific deaths as they try to cross the Mediterranean to reach Europe. The news from the past couple of days was all about tortures that human traffickers inflict on migrants, but now, Libyans account the new death toll to a shark attack.

Dozens of migrants reportedly died after being attacked by a herd of sharks while they were crossing the Mediterranean. Libyan navy rescuers said 31 people passed -18 of whom were children and women – away from the attack that happened between Africa and Italy, and 40 people are still missing.

31 desperate migrants died after their boat reportedly capsized in the Mediterranean.

An alarm was raised early last Friday about the crossing where two Libyan coastguard boats were deployed to the scene. The rescuers reportedly found horrific scenes when they reached the site with many of the migrants were bitten by sharks.

The Libyan Navy claims they arrived at the scene witnessing how the migrants were attacked by a pack of sharks.

The attack reportedly happened when the migrants took advantage of the weather to cross the Mediterranean to reach Europe.

According to reports, around 200 people were rescued from the scene. Libyan patrol boat commander Nasser al-Ghammoudi recounted the awry crossing, saying:

“When we arrived in the area, off the town of Garabulli, [one] dinghy was semi-submerged and still had 44 people clinging on to it, whom we saved. There were lots of bodies all around and we saw there were four or five sharks swimming among them, large blue sharks, a very aggressive species. When we brought the bodies on board we noticed that some of them had been bitten, so it’s possible that among the missing some may have been eaten.”

Two more rescue operations were conducted off the coast, 40 miles east of Tripoli. The search continued for five more hours, but rescuers only found one more person.

Thousands of African migrants have dared to swim the Mediterranean to reach Europe, but many of them end up dying in Libya.

Italian experts, though, are being skeptical of the claims of the Libyan navy, saying there are no known attacks by a school of sharks. Radio journalist Sergio Scandura is more doubtful and believes that their shark attack claim was only to cover up the deaths of migrants “provoked by their own violent interventions.”

Multiple deaths of migrants are being recorded in Libya. Almost 2,000 people have already been rescued from the Mediterranean just over the course of last week. The International Organization for Migration said 161,000 people dared to cross the sea to reach Europe but 3,000 of them were recorded dead in trying to do so.

Reports about abuse causing the death of migrants have emerged in the past month where Libyan human traffickers are said to be the suspects.

Looking at statistics, there has been a drastic drop in numbers of migrants coming to Europe via the Mediterranean. The UN concluded that the past three months only saw 21,666 migrants arriving in Italian airports, which is the lowest number registered in four years.

This is believed to be caused by human traffickers who detain migrants in Libya. Last November, the activities of human traffickers in the country were exposed to the world where Nigerian migrants are being sold at auctions and later experience abuses like mutilation, harvesting their organs and some are even roasted live.

Italians are also convinced Libyans, not shark attacks, caused the recent deaths of migrants.

Just recently, another rescue operation was carried out off the coast of Libya. Four hundred people were rescued but an Eritrean woman died in childbirth after being left without medical care for three days. Survivors revealed:

“The traffickers told us: ‘Throw her into the sea and go and die yourselves in the Mediterranean.’ We didn’t do it. She was our sister. We hope they will give her a decent burial.”
