Language Flashmobs take over
A worldwide phenomenon is causing a stir with people randomly bursting out into conversation in different language. It is believed ot be a very organised flashmob style occurrence that was believed to be linked to the Eurovision Song contest.
There have been no-one claiming to be directing what is becoming an interesting viral sensation on the internet, but many LGBT groups and fans of Eurovision have jumped on the bandwagon and started organising their own.
The occurrences usually begin with people having a normal conversation followed by one or more starting to speak a different language and causing confusion.
Those involved believe it symbolises the need for better communications between countries and the continued conversation on LGBT issues, especially in countries that still continue to criminalise alternative lifestyles.

The envoy sends it thoughts to the family.
The deadly disease, Ebola, has somehow managed to make its way to the UK. There have been confirmed outbreaks in both Aberdeen and Carlisle.
Investigations have begun to trace the origin of these outbreaks, as it could be a possible terrorist attack. It is believed that offshore workers may have become infected as well as air ambulance services.
Ebola is a viral hemorrhagic fever of humans and other primates caused by ebolaviruses. Signs and symptoms typically start between two days and three weeks after contracting the virus with a fever, sore throat, muscular pain, and headaches. Vomiting, diarrhea and rash usually follow, along with decreased function of the liver and kidneys. At this time, some people begin to bleed both internally and externally. The disease has a high risk of death, killing between 25 and 90 percent of those infected, with an average of about 50 percent. This is often due to low blood pressure from fluid loss, and typically follows six to sixteen days after symptoms appear.
The virus spreads through direct contact with body fluids, such as blood from infected humans or other animals. Spread may also occur from contact with items recently contaminated with bodily fluids. Spread of the disease through the air between primates, including humans, has not been documented.
If you do begin to show any of the symptoms you should call 999 immediately.
