Joran Van Der Sloot Confesses To Killing Stephany Flores Ramirez

I bet you guys didn’t see this one coming—and yes, that is sarcasm. Joran Van Der Sloot, the 22-year-old Dutch dude who was long thought to be involved in the disappearance of Natalee Holloway in 2005, has confessed to killing Stephany Flores Ramirez, the 21-year-old daughter of a prominent Peruvian business man and former presidential candidate. Ramirez’s body was found in a hotel room at the Hotel Tac in Lima on June 2nd, half dressed and covered in a sheet. The room was registered to Van Der Sloot, who had already taken off for Chile when the body was found.

Today’s Lady News: Trailblazing Journalist Helen Thomas Retires Following Controversy

  • Journalist Helen Thomas has announced she will retire after controversial comments she made last week about Jews and Israel. Thomas, 89, was a trailblazer for women journalists who covered U.S. presidents dating back to President Kennedy. Among numerous other “firsts” in her career, Thomas became the first woman to become the White House bureau chief for a wire service in 1974 and one year later she was invited to be the first female officer of the National Press Club. Last week, Thomas came under fire for saying that “Israel should get the hell out of Palestine” and that Jews in Israel should return to Germany, Poland, or the U.S. She has since apologized for her remarks.

Restaurant Charges More If You Don’t Clear Your Plate

An Australian restaurant, Wafu, has started charging diners who don’t finish their meal 30 percent more, after Chef Yukako Ichikawa got tired of her customers’ wastefulness. More accurately, those who clean their plate get a 30 percent discount, but it sounds less shocking to say it that way. Ichikawa’s dishes are all organic and free of gluten, dairy, sugar and eggs. She warns customers with a sign on the door that reads, “Vegetables and salad on the side are NOT decorations; they are part of the meal, too.” Ichikawa works to make everything as sustainable as possible and says that those who don’t finish everything shouldn’t bother returning.
