“Hungry” Artist Eats Banana Worth N54m

A banana duct-taped to the wall at a posh art gallery and valued at N54 million ($150,000) has ended up in the stomach of “hungry artist”, David Datuna.

Italian artist, Maurizio Cattelan, had bought bananas at a grocery store in Miami, Florida and ducts tapes to Emmanuel gallery wall at Art Basel Miami Beach, a highs profile contemporary art fair.

The single overripe banana ducts taped to the wall, titled comedies went viral last week after Perrotin claimed two editions of the art piece had been sold for $120,000 each.

The gallery and artist then decided to sell the third edition to any interested museum for $150,000.

Unlike dozens of art lovers who have flocked the gallery to take pictures with the artwork, Datuna, a New York-based performance artist, walked up to the ducts taped banana on Saturday, December 7, 2019, peeled it off the wall and ate it, apparently unauthorized.

“Art performance. Hungry Artist,” Datuna said as he ate the banana before he was approached by Peggy Leboeuf, a partner at Perrotin, who questioned him, “Are you kidding?”

“No,” Datuna replied.

The artist was not arrested but his details were taken down and he was immediately asked to leave the fair. Leboeuf said it's unlikely the gallery will press for action against the artist.

A banana duct-taped to the wall at a posh art gallery and valued at N54 million ($150,000) has ended up in the stomach of “hungry artist”, David Datuna.

Italian artist, Maurizio Cattelan, had bought bananas at a grocery store in Miami, Florida and ducts taped to Emmanuel Perrotin gallery wall at Art Basel Miami Beach, a highs profile contemporary art fair.

The single overripe banana ducts taped to the wall, titled Comedian went viral last week after Perrotin claimed two editions of the art piece had been sold for $120,000 each.

The gallery and artist then decided to sell the third edition to any interested museum for $150,000.

Unlike dozens of art lovers who have flocked the gallery to take pictures with the artwork, Datuna, a New York-based performance artist, walked up to the duct-taped banana on Saturday, December 7, 2019, peeled it off the wall and ate it, apparently unauthorized.

“Art performance. Hungry Artist,” Datuna said as he ate the banana before he was approached by Peggy Leboeuf, a partner at Perrotin, who questioned him, “Are you kidding?”

“No,” Datuna replied.

The artist was not arrested but his details were taken down and he was immediately asked to leave the fair. Leboeuf said it's unlikely the gallery will press for action against the artist.

The banana was replaced minutes later as the work comes with a Certificate of Authenticity that allows owners to replace the banana.

Police officers have been deployed to guard the replacement banana, according to the BBC.

Datuna posted a clip of the incident on his Instagram page and described the artwork as “very delicious”.

“I love Maurizio Cattelan artwork and I really love this installation,” his caption read.

He said in another posted video that his action was not about publicity.

Cattelan, the artist behind the banana, made headlines in September 2019 when another one of his artworks, a toilet made entirely from 18-carat-gold, was stolen from Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, England.

The fully functioning toilet, titled “America”, was installed as part of an exhibition and said to be worth around $6 million. Six people have been arrested and questioned in connection to the theft.

Popular Nollywood Actor Explains How He Contracted HIV

Popular Nollywood actor Hanks Anuku is a household name. In fact, the Auchi Polytechnic graduate has paid his dues in the movie industry with movies like; Rambo, Men on the hard way, Fools on the Run, Bitter honey and many others

Known for his coarse voice, Hanks was born on the 27th of August, 1960 in Ibadan, he attended Loyola College Ibadan and graduated from Auchi Polytechnic, Edo state in 1981.

The Nollywood actor revealed he contracted the HIV virus from his adulterous ways and knowingly infected his wife as well. In an interview, Hanks revealed he spent 6 months in Zambia where he contacted the disease.
“Life in Zambia was heaven on earth because we could enjoy life, moving in all places but I was missing my family.

During that time I had several sexual activities and I slept with different women. When I came back home I never took care of the family. I started drinking like a fish and became an irresponsible husband leaving the entire burden to my wife,” he said.

He continued saying;

“I got tested while I was in Zambia after one of my girlfriends advised me about her pregnancy. She had gone for pregnancy tests and during that time she was tested for HIV and the results were shocking, she was positive. She forced me to get tested but I could not come to terms with the results. After I got tested I came back to Zimbabwe and I kept quiet about the issue. I never told my wife about the issue. I infected her but I regret. I, later on, received some counselling and it went well,” he explained

“During my peak of popularity, I had sex with approximately 80 women, within Harare’s and Zambia. In 2002 it was so amazing to be on TV. I abused the fame. To make matters worse I lacked counselling and I failed to handle it properly, leaving me in this mud. I am now a born again Christian with UFIC under the guidance of Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa.

What it takes to be Miss World

For a little girl watching Jamaicas Toni-Ann Singh being crowned by her predecessor in a surreal, tear- jerking moment, with sheer joy and glamour seeping through even the TV screen, being Miss World means being a celebrated and adored princess.

But amidst the statuesque ladies, shiny crown and beautiful, glistening evening gowns lies a wealth of history and an important platform for the discussion of societal change.

Both Miss World and Miss Universe are among the big four international beauty pageants. They are widely covered and broadcast by media, and are considered prestigious. Miss Earth and Miss International complete the foursome.

Miss World

Miss World began as a bikini contest during the Festival of Britain celebrations in 1951, and was initially known as the Festival Bikini Contest. The show aimed to get people warmed up to the idea of bikinis, which were widely regarded as controversial and indecent at the time.

The first ever Miss World, Kerstin Hakkanson from Sweden, was crowned in a bikini. This sparked a worldwide debate, with religious countries threatening not to send delegates to future events. Further still, the bikini was condemned by the Pope.

Bowing to the pressure, the pageant replaced bikinis with more modest swimwear, coupled with a sarong for crowning. In the late 70s, this was replaced with the much more socially acceptable evening gown.

In the 80s, the show shifted and aligned itself with the slogan beauty with a purpose which changed the focus of the show from physical attributes and incorporated traits such as personality and intellect.

In 2014, Miss World banned the swimsuit category in a bid to present the ladies in a more modest light.

“The organization has decided to take itself out of the swimsuit world because it isnt the path theyre trying to take,” Chris Wilmer, the national director of Miss World America/Miss United States organization, said at the time, “Its not just a beauty contest, its beauty with a purpose. There didnt seem to be a purpose to have the swimsuit.”

A total of 115 women compete for the Miss World crown.

The Miss World winner gets perks, of course, but the exact awards have not been exposed to the public. They include prize money, the coveted Miss World title, and an engaging job with the Miss World Organisation as an ambassador.

“Miss World should be a spokesperson who can help a community,” Chris Wilmer said, “She’s more of an ambassador, not a beauty queen. Its more about the outreach and what a woman could do with a title like Miss World.”

Miss Universe

Miss Universe was founded in 1952. The first pageant of its kind was held in the same year on Long Beach, California, and was won by Armi Kuusela from Finland.

Donald Trump bought the pageant in 1996, and the headquarters moved from Los Angeles to New York City. Trump sold the Miss Universe Organisation to a talent agency and entertainment company in September 2015.

The selection process for Miss Universe begins with countries having an individual selection exercise. This kicks off through local subdivision pageants. The winners then move to compete in a national pageant. Not all countries opt for this internal selection.

According to stakeholders, the pageant does not just seek beauty in the contestants, but rather focuses on attributes like good manners, culture and intelligence.

80 women vie for the Miss Universe crown.

The winner is awarded a lucrative one-year contract with the Miss Universe Organization, a cash allowance during the period of her reign, New York Film Academy Scholarship, a high-end apartment in New York, a modelling portfolio and many more goodies to boot.

The title comes with vast responsibilities. After crowning, the winner is expected to make appearances at media outlets, charity organisations and sponsor events. She spends her reign representing the various causes of the Miss Universe Organisation and raising awareness and funds for charitable associations.

All these are duties that require dedication and hard work, a far cry from what anyone would expect a princess life to be like, glamorous and luxurious while the servants tend to her. Instead, it is a role which comes with much responsibility and even more expectation. After all, even a real monarch isn’t all beauty and gowns, he/she a worker, charity front runner and is dedicated to serving the society.

New YouTube Policy Bans “Malicious Insults And Threat”

YouTube has for a long time been used as a platform for bad actors to launch massive campaigns of targeted harassment against individuals.

YouTube will no longer allow videos that “maliciously insult someone” based on “protected attributes” such as race, gender identity or sexuality.The video-sharing platform will also ban “implied threats of violence” as part of its new harassment policy.


Advertisements

YouTube added, catching up to what targets of coordinated online abuse campaigns have been saying for the better part of a decade. The pattern of behavior will now be something the platform takes into account.

YouTube’s new harassment policy may face financial harm for doing so,

YOUTUBE says: We’re tightening our policies for the YouTube Partner Program (YPP) to get even tougher on those who engage in harassing behavior and to ensure we reward only trusted creators. Channels that repeatedly brush up against our harassment policy will be suspended from YPP, eliminating their ability to make money on YouTube ( SITE MONETIZATION ) . We may also remove ( DELETE ) content from channels if they repeatedly harass someone.

WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook may be banned soon See Reason

Germany’s national competition regulator, The Bundeskartellamt, or Federal Cartel Office (FCO), has ordered Facebook to stop combining user data from different sources without voluntary consent. The order applies to data collected by Facebook-owned platforms like WhatsApp and Instagram, but also third-party sources that Facebook uses to flesh out its advertising profiles, including those of non-users ( The Verge).

Facebook’s data violation practice has come under intense criticism from privacy campaigners and users who argue that it amounts to Facebook following them around the internet without their consent or even their knowledge (The Independent).

Facebook’s continued privacy invasion has roused concerns from top Governments, including the USA, and the US Senate has invited Zuckerberg to defend Facebook’s privacy invasions at different times.
As if this was not enough, Blackberry also sued Facebook for Patent violations.

Blackberry dragged Facebook to court over WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Instagram. Blackberry claims that these apps are infringing its patent. The preliminary verdict of the court is in favour of Blackberry. In its current form, Facebook may no longer offer some of its own apps, including WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Instagram in Germany.

Facebook continues to face hard times and may either be restricted from operating in Germany, or banned altogether. This may encourage a chain of bans across other countries especially in Europe, and the USA.

One day, in line at the company cafeteria, Jack says to Mike behind him, “My elbow hurts like hell. I guess I better see a doctor.”

“Listen, you don’t have to spend that kind of money,” Mike replies. “There’s a diagnostic computer at the drugstore at the corner. Just give it a urine sample and the computer’ll tell you what’s wrong and what to do about it. It takes ten seconds and costs ten dollars…a hell of a lot cheaper than a doctor.”

So Jack deposits a urine sample in a small jar and takes it to the drugstore. He deposits ten dollars, and the computer lights up and asks for the urine sample. He pours the sample into the slot and waits.

Ten seconds later, the computer ejects a printout: You have tennis elbow. Soak your arm in warm water and avoid heavy activity. It will improve in two weeks.

That evening while thinking how amazing this new technology was, Jack began wondering if the computer could be fooled. He mixed some tap water, a stool sample from his dog, urine samples from his wife and daughter, and masturbated into the mixture for good measure.

Jack hurries back to the drugstore, eager to check the results. He deposits ten dollars, pours in his concoction, and awaits the results.

The computer prints the following:

1. Your tap water is too hard. Get a water softener.
2. Your dog has ringworm. Bathe him with anti-fungal shampoo.
3. Your daughter has a cocaine habit. Get her into rehab.
4. Your wife is pregnant…twin girls. They aren’t yours. Get a lawyer.
5. If you don’t stop playing with yourself, your elbow will never get better. 😂😂😂

Still no answer to his prayers. Suddenly the kid stood up, ran into his parents’ bedroom, and grabbed the statuette of the Virgin Mary off the mantelpiece. He wrapped it up in ten layers of paper, using three rolls of tape and a spool of twine, then stuffed it inside a box at the very bottom of his closet. ‘Okay, God,’ he said, getting down onto his knees again, ‘if you ever want to see your mother again…’😹😹😹😂😂😂
