A mother in the United Kingdom, is devastated after a judge took away her babies because she slept with them in her bed.

Judge Peter Greene of Cambridgeshire, ordered the mother to hand over her children to the government because she refused to stop co-sleeping with her children despite being warned against the practice.

The court was also told that both parents handled the children with excessive force.

People in Canada, are angry after learning that a killer and cannibal was released from custody without facing any charges.

Manitoba police said that they have arrested 31-year-old Will Baker, who is also known as Vince Li, after being accused of killing a bus passenger in front of shocked onlookers.

A priest's plan to show man the power of God, backfired after 5 church members died and 13 suffered injuries, following the ingestion of rat poison.

Priest Light Monyeki of Soshanguve, South Africa, boasted that he will show his followers that do not have to fear “as death has not power over them.”

“The man of God, Prophet Light Monyeki, demonstrated the power of faith by causing congregants to drink Rattax, which is a deadly poison, to show forth their faith,” Grace Living Hope Ministries wrote on Facebook.

“We do not need to proclaim faith because we are believers. Death has no power over us,” the priest said. “Monyeki then declared life from above upon the water mixed with Rattax,” the church said.

He then spoke about nourishment unto bodies and healing unto the sick. A multitude of congregants voluntarily ran to priest to have a drink of the deadly poison.

After declaring nourishment and healing, Monyeki was the first one to drink followed by numerous church members. The plan backfired, as many members began complaining of severe stomach pain.

Later in the day, 5 church members have died and 13 were still in the hospital as a result of drinking the poison, according to Ghana Star.

When Monyeki was confronted about the deaths and injuries, he allegedly said that too much of any good thing can be bad.

Police launched an investigation, but so far, no arrests have been made.

How To Choose The Best Domain Name For Your Business

By: Michelle Parker

Nowadays, every successful business has a website.

After you choose a business that you want to pursue, it's time to create a website.

The first thing you need to do is decide a name for your website and its url, which is also known as a domain name.

Next, you have to see if that domain name is available. You can do so by going to a domain name registrar and get a free domain name.

To see reviews of domain name registrars, visit DomainNamesWebHosting.

When you enter the url you want, the registrar will let you know if that domain name is available for you or if it is already taken.

Since there are billions of websites, many domain names are already taken and many people are "fighting" to get those same customers that you are looking for.

Therefore, choosing a great name for your business is very important.

Here are some tips to choosing a great name for your website.

Keep it simple. People have so much going on in their lives and you have so much competition that it is very important to have a domain name that people can easily remember.

There has to be a clear connection between the domain name and the products that you are selling.

If you sell toys, you can have the word "toys" in the domain name. If you sell a custom made product, you can have the name of the item along with the word custom.

For example, if you sell custom plastic bags with people's personal logos, then you can have a domain name such as "custom shopping bags."

This way, people know what you are selling bags as soon as they see your name.

Stick to .com rather than .org or .net, as it is more popular and people remember .com easier.

If you are a global company, .com is best. However, if you are doing business just in one country, then choose .uk in the United Kingdom or .ca in Canada.

After choosing your domain name, it is time to choose a web hosting company to build and host your website.

A man in France, has filed a lawsuit against Uber for ruining his marriage.

The businessman claims that Uber sent his wife a list of rides he took to see his lover.

However, unbeknown to him, Uber kept sending notifications to his wife’s iPhone despite being logged out, revealing his travel history.

The wife became angry over his infidelity and she left him.

The couple has since divorced. The man is suing Uber for $48 million, for disclosing his private information to his wife.

Darmon said that the app had a virus and it sent messages to the wrong phone despite being logged out.

“The virus has caused problems in my client’s private life,” Darmon added.

The glitch reportedly occurred only to users with iPhones. Android phones were not be affected. Uber has since updated their software.

Uber did not comment on this specific case as a lawsuit is involved. However, they did say that it is their priority to protect their clients' personal information.

If you want to buy your loved ones a specific gift, such as a piece of jewelry or purse for a woman, or a leather wallet, belt or cufflinks for a man, and you are not sure which style they like, surprise them and drive them to the store.

Tell them to get ready for an outing and surprise them by driving up to the store of your choice.

Then direct them to the section of that specific item and allow them to choose. Many men and women appreciate the fact that they can select the style of the gift they like.

If shopping is too stressful or if you are afraid that your loved one will choose something over your budget, then you can buy a few different styles of the same time.

Take them home and surprise your loved one. Let them choose the one they like and return the rest to the store the following day.
