The holidays aren’t easy for everyone, especially for a mom of 3 who works at a McDonald’s in Meadow Lake, SK. That’s why an Alberta radio station wanted to bring her some much-needed holiday cheer. Like other media outlets around the country, including Alberta CBX that made a waitress’ day, […]

Son jóvenes, son millonarios y lo muestran; tienen miles de seguidores entre los que despiertan comentarios de amor y odio
(En Argentina también hay niños ricos…)
“Ellos son más ricos que vos y eso es lo que hacen”, ésta es la descripción de los perfiles de Tumblr, Facebook e Instagram en los que se muestran fotografías de jóvenes millonarios que llevan una vida llena de excesos y lujos. El más conocido es ” Rich Kids of Instagram” que cuenta con más de 200 mil seguidores, cuyo moderador prefiere mantenerse en el anonimato y al que los interesados en figurar en sus sitios le envían las fotos.
La premisa es simple, imágenes que derrochen lujo. Claro que no cualquiera puede ser miembro de este exclusivo club. Para empezar, uno debe ser propietario de joyas y relojes de oro o diamantes, muchísimo dinero, autos como ferraris o jaguars, viajar en jets privados y tomar helicópteros tan seguido como uno toma un taxi; o por lo menos aparentarlo. Estos jóvenes también frecuentan muchas fiestas exclusivas en las que no beben nada menos que champagne Don Perignon, es más, hay tanto que lo arrojan al viento o sobre sus cuerpos.
“Recibimos muchísimas fotos para subir, pero somos muy selectivos. No subimos el 99% de las imágenes que nos envían”, sostuvo su creador a LA NACION. También aclaró que si alguien se siente ofendido por aparecer en una foto basta con solo pedirlo para que la foto sea removida.
En invierno ellos escapan a playas paradisíacas en sus enormes yates privados y, en verano, hacen alguna escapada a esquiar para no aburrirse. Ellos son la nueva tendencia en las redes sociales, son jóvenes, son millonarios y tienen miles de seguidores. Si bien la cuenta original se creó en el 2012, el boom de los “Rich Kids” se ha extendido por varios países como Irán, Marruecos, Dinamarca, México, Turquía, Canadá, Azerbaiyán, Puerto Rico y Egipto. También en algunas ciudades como Londres, Teherán, Toronto, Beirut o el emirato árabe de Dubai. Este fenómeno ha llamado particularmente la atención en Gran Bretaña, donde ya se ha realizado un documental al respecto.
Como nos suele tener acostumbrados, Estados Unidos, no tardó en sumarse a la tendencia mundial y, en enero del 2014 comenzó a emitir un reality llamado ” Rich Kids of Beverly Hills”. Se trata de un grupo de veinteañeros millonarios que hacen de su vida de niños ricos un show televisado.
En Argentina también hay niños ricos…
Argentina no se queda atrás en ésta extraña tendencia mundial. Existe, desde hace algún tiempo, la cuenta de Tumblr, ” Ah listo que cheto”. Aquí se sigue la misma lógica, un moderador anónimo selecciona las fotos que mejor reflejan, según su criterio, lo que significa “ser cheto”. Si bien aquí están ausentes botellas de bebidas caras y los fajos de dólares, los chicos se pasean por barrios privados, con ropa de marca, en autos caros y también en fiestas en yates. Como contraparte existe ” Ah listo que villero “, donde la tendencia va por beber vino de tetrabrik y empuñar cuchillos o armas de fuego.
Queda demostrado que a lo largo y a lo ancho de todo el mundo, y haciendo exposición de los excesos desde clases sociales opuestas, se puede llegar al mal gusto con mucha facilidad.

A transgender taxi driver who hit a £4 million pound jackpot via a lottery scratchcard has no intention of sharing her winnings with the children who abandoned her.
While it may seem harsh, 57-year-old Melissa Ede reasons are justified, somewhat, by the cold treatment she received from a select members of her family from her first marriage.
The transgender taxi driver from Hull is intent on improving her life now she is in a financial position to do so, and after recently getting engaged the timing couldn’t be any more perfect for Melissa, her fiancé and her five young children.
Speaking to UNILAD about the moment she realised she had just won £4 million, the cab driver – who has since quit her job upon her new-found fortune – thought it was all a big prank for a hidden camera show.
You think it’s not real. It’s like you double and triple check, 20 times, and it looks right. Then you start to think: ‘Is this a prank show?’
Even after the National Lottery had sent over officials to hand her the huge cheque ‘it still hasn’t become real’.
I haven’t had a chance to really realise it, even though I’ve been doing all these interviews and everything, with everybody who wants to talk to me, I still don’t think it’s hit home. I mean the money is in the bank account, I can see it, but it’s just mad as it feels it doesn’t feel any different.
It’s really really weird, I’m buzzing about it but the reality of it all will kick in when I start buying bigger things like a house and the car I’ve never had. That’s the point when it all becomes reality because it’s mine.
With her new-found fortune, as well as a big house and car for her fiancé and children, Melissa also plans to get some much-needed treatment for her teeth and ‘a bit of plastic surgery to tidy up’ her face. She also has grand designs to invest her winnings to start her own designer brand as well as complete her autobiography.
I’ve led a very colourful and interesting life and that needs to be published for a lot of reasons really. To help and offer hope to people, and what better way to do it than with a fairy tale ending? Which is what I’ve got.
However, those who won’t be sharing in the spoils of her new riches will be those she says pushed her away during her transition to becoming a woman. While other media outlets have reported she intends to cut out her children from her first marriage, Melissa clarifies with us the statement was ‘taken out of context’.
Melissa told UNILAD:
My actual statement was ‘Now it’s payback time, the people who have stood with me and been behind me right through this will get rewarded. The people who turned their back on me; including my children and my family stay where you wanted to be, just because I’ve got money things haven’t changed.’
That was the message: ‘Don’t come round because I’ve got money, you’re not going to get money out of me, you haven’t wanted to know me all these years’.
Now it comes off as a bit harsh, I do realise that, and maybe if they did come to me I’m willing to talk to them. But they’re not going to get money out of me for a very long time. They would have to prove to me that they want to be in my life because they want to be, not because of my money.
Melissa confirms that she is still on speaking terms with her eldest and youngest children from her first marriage, however, her two middle children haven’t seen or spoken to her for more than 15 years. The ‘misreporting’ has obviously caused her oldest and youngest kids to be upset about what’s been written.
… they said we never turned our back on you because you were transgender, we always supported you and they did. I was even on Jeremy Kyle with my youngest, who I found out wasn’t my biological daughter – but she’s still my daughter to me, and sat on the show saying how wonderful she is and how great she’s been throughout my transition.
I didn’t know if it was The Sun or The Mirror who printed the lies, but it’s like ‘What are you doing?’. But I understand what they’ll do is take little bits out of it and make it into a story.
What I said to the youngest and the oldest is: ‘Look, things are really up in the air with everything, please let it settle down, then I will contact you and we can talk.’
I told them to stop reading the newspapers because they’re going to say what they want to make a story. If you want to know what I truthfully said watch the live videos and the interviews I do on TV. Watch what I say on them rather than taking little bits out of newspapers.
Melissa claims the press have been knocking at her neighbours, who she’s known for 20 years, and have even appeared at her fiancé’s house looking for a story. While she is open to communication from those who cut themselves out of her life she states they need ‘to prove to me that they want to be in my life’.
I’ve had to struggle throughout life. I sound quite hard and callous but that’s the life I led.
With a £4 million fortune, she can now lead it however she likes.

Nurse Emma Shaw, 32, went to her mum’s home to collect her festive footwear but found an unwanted present as well
A TK Maxx shopper who ordered Christmas party heels claims she had a stinky surprise in the box when it arrived.
Nurse Emma Shaw, 32, went to her mum’s home to collect her festive footwear but found an unwanted present as well.
The mum-of-two said the “smelly” substance was sitting in the corner of the box and appeared to resemble faeces.
But it was thrown out by the Shaw family so it has never been conclusively identified.
The discount high-end brand retailer has since apologised and offered a voucher and full refund, stating an ‘internal investigation’ had been launched since the delivery was made last month.
Emma, who lives with her husband Steve, 37, and two boys George, seven, and three-year-old Stanley, said she was stunned to find the strange add-on with her £130 shoes.
Emma, from Bridgnorth, Shrops, said: “It was inside the sealed bag, inside the sealed box so we have no idea how it got in there.
“It was smelly but sort of dried as well so we could be thankful it wasn’t too pongy.
“I actually ordered some designer shoes, but these were more like ‘Jimmy Poos’ you could say.
“Luckily no kids opened the box or anything as there could have been a health hazard from whatever the substance was.”
In an email to the Shaws a customer service representative from TK Maxx wrote: “I am truly sorry that you had to experience this.
“Due to the serious nature of this case an internal investigation will be launched.
“I sincerely hope that you (or (sic) no other customer) has to experience a problem like this again.”
Emma and her husband accepted the voucher and refund from TK Maxx and she has since worn the shoes to a Christmas party.
