It turns out the ignorant tweet from Paris Hilton about Nelson Mandela that went viral turned out to be faked.
According to a CNN breaking report , South African President Jacob Zuma announced that the revolutionary politician that led a nation out of decades of apartheid, Nelson Mandela, has passed away at the age of 95.
"He is now resting. He is now at peace," Zuma said. "Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father."
On Monday, a driver in Mexico transporting the radioactive material cobalt-60 from a medical facility, pulled to the side of the road to take a nap when two gunmen highjacked the truck he was driving. The International Atomic Energy Agency stated: ""At the time the truck was stolen, the source was properly shielded. However, the [cobalt-60] could be extremely dangerous to a person if removed from the shielding, or if it was damaged."
And...that's exactly what the criminals did; the truck was recently found with the shielding removed and the cobalt-60 fully exposed. Mardino Jimenez, a physicist for Mexico's Commission of Nuclear Safety and Safeguards recently told NBC News, "The person or people who took this out are in very great risk of dying." According to Jimenez, a person usually survives for only 2 to 3 days after exposure to the radioactive material. Fortunately, the cobalt-60 was discovered in an area where no other individuals are at risk of harm from exposure.

During the holiday season, there are many gatherings around the dinner table with family and friends who we only see a few times a year.

This great mashup includes many excellent moments in cinematic history that portrays those infamous moments that we can all relate to.
