Model, 20, Exposes The Seedy World Of Prostitution In The Fashion Industry

Posted by addisethiopia on August 29, 2017

After An Agent Claims Household Names Are Paid Up To $2MILLION To Sleep With Rich Clients And Further Their Careers

EXCLUSIVE: Jazz Egger, 20 was offered £2,000 for ‘intimacy’ with a client

  • The London-based model was told: ‘that is how the fashion industry works’
  • Agent claimed that top supermodels are paid up to $2million for sex with men
  • Even sent screen shots of messages from models who said they ‘enjoyed it’

  • A young model has claimed prostitution is rife within the fashion industry after she was offered cash to sleep with wealthy men.

London-based model Jazz Egger, who recently turned 20, makes the extraordinary claim that ‘big agencies’ and ‘established models’ are involved in seedy underground dealings, with young women paid up to $2million (£1.54million) to spend the night with male clients.

Shockingly, Jazz claims she was even told that two young supermodels who have become household names have ‘spent time’ with men for money in order to get ahead in their career.

Austrian-born Jazz said she was first propositioned last summer after meeting an agent at an exclusive London club, who offered her an ‘image modelling job’ which involved a Greek yacht trip with three ‘millionaires’.

Jazz, who has 35,000 Instagram followers, also claims she has been told that one of the most established modeling agencies in the world was a ‘partner client’ of the company that had approached her for sex work.

She declined, but soon afterwards she was contacted by a second man who invited her to a private dinner with a ‘famous actor’ at a popular celebrity haunt – and advised that she would need to be comfortable with the ‘natural intimacy’ that followed.

When the then teen replied that she was ‘a model and not an escort’, she alleges the man – known only as George – shot back: ‘It’s the most normal thing in the industry, everyone does it.’

Shockingly, the agent claimed that two well-known fashion models have accepted vast sums of cash in return for ‘spending time’ with his clients.

He told her: ‘[The models] realise the value of money and how much of a difference it can make. And everyone enjoys having sex especially with good-looking guys. What is the shame? Society creates double standards that make women feel guilty.’

He added: ‘That is how the fashion industry works’ and even claimed that ‘most models get to where they were through something like this’.

George even told Jazz that one of the most established modeling agencies in the world was a ‘partner client’ of the company that had approached her for sex work.

He said: ‘All of these modelling agencies are run by hedge fund managers wanting to meet girls.’

‘This can’t be okay’

Jazz told MailOnline: ‘I would never sell my body in such a matter. I couldn’t combine it with my morals really.

‘I still respect those who do accept such offers. What made his offer highly questionable to me is that he asked me to keep quiet about it. This can’t be okay.

‘[George] reacted by spamming me with messages, in an attempt to convince me to accept his offer. It seemed like he was very experienced in that kind of conversation. He sent me screenshots of models who he allegedly worked with.’

She added: ‘I know some models that have done escort work and experienced unwanted sexual advances.

‘When I shared the article, many of my model colleagues messaged me, telling me about their experiences. It was sad to see that it’s such a common and usual thing.

The Church Forests: What If Churches From Around The World Learned From Ethiopia?

Posted by addisethiopia on June 28, 2017

The Church Forests, mainly concentrated around the source of the Blue Nile, were created as a physical reminder of God’s creation, symbolic Gardens of Eden in areas where much land has been cleared for agriculture. Administered by the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahido Church, they’re home to much of the country’s biodiversity, and while they’ve always served a spiritual purpose, now the church is working with conservationists to help preserve the country’s flora and fauna. And that has a knock-effect for communities, with plans to engage the children involved with the churches with mini-conservation surveys based around insects, projects that are simple and cheap and therefore sustainable and replicable in the future for more on this, check out the work of Dr. Margaret Lowman, who has been working with local churches to help preserve the forests.

It’s funny how, in that last paragraph, I drew an implicit distinction between the ‘spiritual’ and the ‘physical’. That’s a failing of the Western Church, I think, where concern for the environment is seen as something New Agey and has a negative impact on how we approach issues like climate change. When we adopt an attitude of domination rather than genuine stewardship, the church can be embedded as part of the problem rather than contributing to a solution.

But the Church Forests have been doing this for over 1,500 years. And while they’re now having to build protective walls around their forests, there’s still a challenge here – what if churches from around the world learned from Ethiopia? What if this was one of the models by which the church engaged with environmental issues? What if one of the priests who look after the Church Forests was asked to speak at one of our big conferences? That raises a lot of questions and issues, around perceived authority and colonialism, and the environment is a lens through which we need to confront this. The question at the root of it all, though, is simple:

What if we became better at learning from each other?

SHOKING VIDEO: Turkey Erdogan’s Bodyguards Brutally Attack Armenian Christian Protesters in Washington DC

Posted by addisethiopia on May 17, 2017

Let the world see and learn how savage and barbaric the Turks are. If they do this, as guests, in a free country, imagine how they treat Christians and Kurds in their savage country.

A demonstration outside the Turkish Embassy in northwest Washington led to nine people being injured, and two arrested. UNBELIEVABLE!

This is MINGBOGGLING, INSANE! Turkish Bodyguards with guns attacking people in Washington DC! Just SHOKING! And the police is watching how they beat unarmed people. OUTRAGEOUS!

The Antichrist beast believes the world belongs to it. The inbreed Turks are attacking Armenians and Kurds, kicking and hitting women and innocent protesters – as if they are still in Turkey. Only cowards attack older men and women, only cowards attack in a number 50 vs 10.

COWARD Turks

Ethiopian Face of The Day: Richard Quest

Posted by addisethiopia on March 24, 2017

The Man Behind Ethiopia’s First Botanic Garden

I just read this story about the good Ethiopian botanical scientist, and twon things amused immediately:

1. Ethiopia’s 1st botanic garden? What about ‘Addis’ Bihere Tsige, which is as botanical as any Eurpean botanic garden? Do gardens have to their plants botanical names to qualify for gardens? Anyways, Prof. Sebsebe’s plan is a very good plan, as Ethioipia needs more gardens, parks and forests.

The report reads like this:

A leading Ethiopian botanical scientist plans to open Ethiopia’s first botanic garden. Professor Sebsebe Demissew says the continent needs people with the skills to advance plant research. The award-winning botanist has been explaining to us what the benefits of plants are to local people.

2. The 2nd thing that caught my attention is the striking resemblance I noticed between Professor Sebsebe and CNN weirdo Richard Quest. Exactly 9 years ago (21 Apr 2008) CNN’s most high-profile faces, Richard Quest was busted in New York’s Central Park with some drugs in his pocket, a rope around his neck that was tied to his genitals, and a sex toy in his boot, law-enforcement sources said. It wasn’t immediately clear what the rope was for. Madre mía! In case Mr. Quest still means business, and is fooling around with this sort of things, he should immediately go into rehab in one of the next botanic gardens of Professor Sebsebe.

Italian Archbishop Suggests Pope Benedict XVI Resigned Under Obama ‘Pressure’

Posted by addisethiopia on March 10, 2017

The image: While President Obama was escorting Pope Francis September 23, 2015, cameras captured something subliminal: HORNS

It wouldn’t be the first time it appeared Obama had a set of horns.

A year after Pope Benedict XVI was forced to resign, while giving a speech in the White House, it appeared the president had horns coming out of his head:


An Italian archbishop close to Pope Benedict XVI has claimed that the Obama administration may have been complicit in the “tremendous pressures” that led the former pope to resign in 2013.

It is “no coincidence” that some Catholic groups “have asked President Trump to open a commission of inquiry to investigate whether the administration of Barack Obama exerted pressure on Benedict,” said Archbishop Luigi Negri in an interview Monday, citing other revelations by Wikileaks regarding efforts by the Democratic Party to sway the direction of the Catholic Church in the United States.

It remains shrouded in mystery for now,” he said to news outlet Rimini 2.0, “but I am sure that those responsible will be found out.”

The archbishop was making reference to a letter written by a group of American Catholics to President Trump last January requesting that the administration conduct an investigation into a possible Soros-Obama-Clinton conspiracy behind the resignation of Pope Benedict.

The letter stated specifically that “we have reason to believe that a Vatican ‘regime change’ was engineered by the Obama administration.”

Approximately a year after an e-mail conversation released by Wikileaks, the authors contended, “we find that Pope Benedict XVI abdicated under highly unusual circumstances and was replaced by a pope whose apparent mission is to provide a spiritual component to the radical ideological agenda of the international left.”

In startling revelations last October, Clinton campaign chief John Podesta was found to have created phony “Catholic” organizations in order to use Church leaders to push a liberal agenda in congress and to promote the agenda of the Democratic Party.

In the midst of the hundreds of John Podesta’s emails released by Wikileaks, one contained a report by Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, a faux Catholic association founded by Podesta to provoke a revolution in the Catholic Church.

The executive director of the organization, Christopher J. Hale, referred to the group’s “grueling preparation for Pope Francis’s apostolic trip to the US.”

Along with efforts to infiltrate the Church hierarchy, the organization’s collusion with the Obama administration was also made apparent in Hale’s report.

I spoke to the White House yesterday and they assure us the media’s moniker calling us ‘God Squad’ isn’t just sweet nothings, but actually a fair assessment of the substantial difference we’re making in this conversation,” he wrote.

Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput described a meeting with two members of the other “Catholic” organization that Podesta claims to have founded—Catholics United. In a published essay, the archbishop depicted a methodology eerily similar to that employed by Catholics in Alliance.

Chaput said that the two men were “obvious flacks for the Obama campaign and the Democratic Party—creatures of a political machine, not men of the Church,” who showed remarkable “talents of servile partisan hustling.”

In a separate statement, the head of the U.S. Bishops Conference, Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz, issued an indictment of the Clinton team, calling them out for interfering in the Church’s self-governance for “short-term political gain.”

Kurtz suggested that Podesta’s actions in creating “Catholic” lobby groups for the Democratic Party constituted a breach of religious freedom, “one of the founding principles of our republic,” which ensures the right of faith communities to “preserve the integrity of their beliefs and proper self-governance.”

In his interview Monday, Archbishop Negri said he has visited Pope Benedict “several times” since the pontiff’s resignation in 2013. Negri resigned last month as archbishop of Ferrara-Comacchio, a post assigned him by Pope Benedict, upon reaching the mandatory retirement age of 75.

Archbishop Negri did not lay all the blame for Benedict’s resignation on the Obama administration, but said he was “certain that the truth will emerge one day showing grave liability both inside and outside the Vatican.”

In the interview, Negri was also critical of Pope Francis for failing to answer the dubia—or “questions”—made by four Cardinals regarding certain teachings in the Pope’s letter Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love) that seem unclear to many in the Church.

Amoris Laetitia needs clarification, unfortunately, the current leader of the Church still remains silent,” he said. “I think that the Holy Father should respond, although he seems to have decided to the contrary.”

Nothing would surprise us. Let’s face it, he was the first pope to resign in 600 years. Something isn’t right.

We are fighting powers and principalities of heavenly realms. These are dark times indeed
