Let's Do The News! (February 27, 2015)

Welcome back. Here is your current sitrep:

- The widow of the man killed by a masked Islamic State militant known as "Jihadi John" says she want him captured alive. Jihadi John, as seen on the clips of Western hostages beheadings, was identified as Mohammed Emwazi, a Kuwaiti-born Brit from western London. He killed British aid worker David Haines and his wife, Dragana, want that militant captured alive while his daughter wants that militant dead.

- Meanwhile, a video from the Islamic State showed up and this video showcases militants destroying artifacts from ancient Mesopotamian civilization in places believed to be northern Iraq. The UNESCO's Iraq office told that they're analyzing the latest IS video while Western media told that the vandalism done by IS is located in Mosul, which is under IS control last summer.

- After riots occurred on the Greek capital city Athens, it is up to the German parliament to vote on the bailout plan to resolve the Greek debt crisis. They're debating a plan to extend the nation's financial aid by another four months and this extension needs to be ratified by the Eurozone members.

- Meanwhile in South Africa, a baby that was stolen from her sleeping mother's arms shortly after birth 17 years ago has been found coincidentally by the family.

- 32 people reportedly killed in the latest batch of terrorist attacks in Nigeria, which is believed to be the work of the Islamic militant group Boko Haram.

- A few moments ago, producer Adi Shankar and director Joseph Kahn created this web movie showcasing a dystopian take on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers called POWER/RANGERS and over 8 million netizens watched it. Sadly, some bad news. The video in question was already removed from YouTube due to a copyright claim from Saban Brands. In Shankar's statement, it was considered to be an outright infringement on freedom of expression and individualism and the reason why they made this "bootleg" clip is a tribute to their childhood TV heroes and only a parody of some sorts.

- Little did you know that the Philippines were also responsible for rescuing Jewish people during the World War II holocaust? Yes, this fact can be found in any history books and X Factor Israel winner Rose Fostanes was surprised by this fact. Yesterday, she performed at the Music Museum for the Philippines Friendship Concert.

- WHAT'S THIS? There was a picture of a dress went viral and it sparked confusion whether if this dress is "black and blue" or "white and gold". Netizens have been debating this pic for days, especially celebs, and the truth comes clear that this dress is of course "black and blue" due to lighting and shadows from the photography.
