Belgian boy Laurent Simons heads off to university aged 8

Image
A Belgian boy has graduated secondary school aged eight after completing six years' study in just a year and a half. Laurent Simons, whose father is Belgian and mother Dutch, and has an IQ of 145 according to his parents, collected a diploma with a class of 18-year-olds. Speaking to Belgium's RTBF radio, Laurent said his favourite subject was maths "because it's so vast, there's statistics, geometry, algebra".

After a two-month holiday from school, he will start university. His father said his son had struggled when he was younger to play with other children, and had not been particularly interested in toys. Laurent said he had considered becoming a surgeon and an astronaut but was now thinking about going into computers. "If he decided tomorrow to become a carpenter, that would not be a problem for us, as long as he is happy," his father said.

๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ทMbappe Masterclass Sends Messi & Argentina packing


Kylian Mbappe upstaged Lionel Messi as France recorded a 4-3 win over Argentina in a topsy-turvy last-16 clash to open the knockout stages at the World Cup.

Teenager Mbappe was in devastating form in the heavyweight clash in Kazan, scoring two second-half goals to bring Argentina's tumultuous campaign in Russia to an end.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward's surging 70-yard burst also led to the opener after 13 minutes, Antoine Griezmann slotting home from the penalty spot after Mbappe had been hauled down by Marcos Rojo.

Yet Argentina turned the game around to go ahead, Angel Di Maria's stunning long-range strike before the break followed by Gabriel Mercado's fortuitous effort early in the second half.

However, Benjamin Pavard matched Di Maria's effort with an outstanding equaliser in the 57th minute before Mbappe took centre stage, securing Didier Deschamps' side a place in the quarter-finals, where they…

Neymar⭐: ๐Ÿ”ˆI'm Not Worth World-Record €222m

Image
Neymar is not worth the €222 million (£200m/$262m) Paris Saint-Germain paid to sign him, the star himself says.

The 26-year-old feels PSG paid over the odds for him, but says he has always wanted to be seen as a "special" player.






"I'm not proud of the transfer fee, nor of the fact I'm the most expensive player ever," he said. "That's just money and nothing else. I cannot help it. Personally, I would have paid less for myself. I always wanted to be special. That was my goal very early - actually from the moment I started playing football for a club. That was at the age of 11. It may sound clumsy, but from then on I've tried to get better every single day and get to my best."

Neymar impressed in the French capital in his first year until an injury brought a premature end to his campaign.

Alice Johnson Thanks Kim Kardashian West for Her Freedom❗

Image
On Wednesday, the former inmate wrapped the reality TV star in a warm embrace, as she met for the first time the woman who helped win her freedom.

Johnson, a first-time nonviolent drug offender who'd been serving a life sentence since 1996, was freed from prison last week after President Donald Trump commuted her sentence.

That commutation came just days after Kardashian West, who said she became interested in Johnson after seeing a story about her months ago on Twitter, pleaded Johnson's case to Trump in the Oval Office.




"At first, I thought she (already) knew, because the news was starting to break," Kardashian West told NBC's Hoda Kotb.

Last week, an emotional Johnson marveled at her freedom after more than two decades behind bars, grateful for a second chance -- and craving seafood.

Image
The world’s largest skinny dip took place on Saturday morning, with more than 2,500 women stripping off on a secluded beach in the Republic of Ireland to break the Guinness world record. The annual event, known as Strip and Dip, is in its sixth year after being launched by breast cancer survivor Deirdre Featherstone and this year was raising funds for Aoibheann’s Pink Tie, Ireland's national children's cancer charity.

Open to women only, participants were made up of cancer patients, survivors and those who had been otherwise affected by cancer. Ms Featherstone decided to launch the event just six weeks after undergoing a mastectomy. 60 people attended the inaugural swim while numbers grew to 200 for last year's event.

“I had a brainwave to do something fun,” the 53-year-old mother-of-three wrote on this year's registration page. “There are a lot of women undertaking this who have been through cancer and of course loads of people who have been affected by it. With our …

PSA: Yahoo Messenger is shutting down next month

Verizon subsidiary Oath has announced that Yahoo Messenger is officially shutting down next month. Users will have six months to download their chat history from Yahoo Messenger.

Arsenal Legend Vieira Becomes New Nice Boss

Image
Patrick Vieira's departure from New York City to take over as head coach of Nice has been confirmed by the Ligue 1 club.
Former France international Vieira, who was a key part of Arsenal's 'Invincibles' side of 2003-04, takes over from Lucien Favre, who left for Borussia Dortmund in May, but Nice have not disclosed the length of his contract.
Manchester City – part of the City Football Group that owns the New York club – announced the switch on Sunday, but it was not until Monday that the two clubs involved confirmed an agreement.
Vieira says he is excited about the challenge offered to him on the Cote d'Azur.
"I was seduced by the project and by the people involved in it," he said. "I have talked a lot with [director general] Julien Fournier and the president [Jean-Pierre Rivere]. When I look at the squad, it makes me very envious. There is everything you need here to succeed."
"My playing career no longer counts for anything, it's pa…

Dele Alli Promises Best Behaviour At the World Cup

Image
Dele Alli has promised to not fall foul of new FIFA regulations at the World Cup which allow referees to punish players retrospectively for infringements during a match.
The new rules, backed by Video Assistant Referee (VAR) technology, could lead to players being punished at the interval for foul play that went unnoticed during the first half.
Alli, who has come under scrutiny for previous incidents at Tottenham, remains confident he will avoid letting his temper get the better of him in Russia.
"When you're playing the games, you are focused on trying to help the team as much as you can," he said.
"You don't want to put yourself in a position where you could jeopardise everything and lose the game for your team and your country. I'll just be myself, the way I always am."

Declaring Abiola As President Will Do Justice To Nigeria’s History – Falana

Image
A Senior Advocate of Nigeria has joined voices with opinion leaders calling on the Federal Government to declare Moshood Abiola as Nigeria’s former President. Abiola is the presumed winner of the June 12, 1993, presidential election
Femi Falana, who was a guest on Channels Television’s political programme on Sunday, also commended the Federal Government for conferring a posthumous national award of the Grand Commander of the Federal Republic (GCFR) on Abiola. He noted that this development is a starting point for the government. “I do hope like the Senate did resolve that the results of the June 12 election should be officially announced so that the actual winner is proclaimed.
Reacting to claims that the June 12 declaration as Democracy Day was merely a means to sway the people of the south-west region, Falana said such comments reduce the significance of the day. The human rights activist explained that the June 12 struggle was a pan-Nigerian mandate.

NBA Finals Review:Steph Curry Dazzles from Deep, GSW Beat Cavs 122-103, Take 2⃣-0⃣ Lead

Box Score

------- Q1 | Q2 | Q3 | Q4 | TOT
CLE 28 | 18 | 34 | 23 | 103
GSW 32 | 27 | 31 | 32 | 122

Stephen Curry hit an NBA Finals-record nine 3-pointers and scored 33 points, leading the Golden State Warriors to a 122-103 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers for a 2-0 lead.

Kevin Durant found his steady stroke to score 26 points to go with nine rebounds and seven assists while also handling a load of the defensive assignment against LeBron James. Klay Thompson added 20 points playing on a tender left leg to put the defending champions two victories from a repeat title they have talked about since the season began last fall.

James followed up his 51-point performance in Game 1 with 29 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds in a far tamer finals sequel minus the utter craziness of a drama-packed opener three days prior. Kevin Love had 22 points and 10 boards for the cold-shooting Cavs, who will now try to gain some momentum back home.

JaVale McGee scored 12 points, making all six of his sh…
