The ex-Clueless star took the media mogul to task for remarks the latter made recently in which she drew a parallel between Trayvon Martin's tragic killing and the death of 14-year-old Emmett Till, a seminal moment in the birth of the Civil Rights movement. Dash, who has made headlines in recent years for her conservative viewpoints, quoted a line from Malcom X on Twitter last Friday and included a link to a Fox News story that called Winfrey out for making the comparison. "If you aren't careful, The newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing ~ Malcolm X," she tweeted, before adding, "Shame on you @oprah.

Militants in Egypt today killed 25 policemen execution-style in an ambush in the Sinai Peninsula, as the chaos in the country continued. The attack on police apparently took place this morning as two minibuses carrying off-duty officers were driving through a village near the border town of Rafah. The suspected militants forced the two vehicles to stop, ordered the policemen out and forced them to lie on the ground before they shot them to death, according to security officials. Sinai, which marks the border between Israel, Egypt and the Gaza Strip, has long been considered one of the main flashpoints in the Middle East. I pray all this ends soon.
Doctors have removed a 10cm long steel fork from inside a man’s penis, after a sexual adventure went horribly wrong.

Kenneth Ngobele quizzed the woman, a manic depressive, about her sexual history and her attitude to Nigerian men, it is alleged. Ngobele later took the woman to a La Tasca restaurant and told her 'You know I want to f*** you', the Nursing and Midwifery Council was told. 'Patient A' met Ngobele while she was being treated at Basildon Hospital in Essex following a mental breakdown. The vulnerable woman initially kept the alleged affair secret but eventually revealed all to health workers at a clinic.

It is claimed he met up with the woman after she was discharged from the hospital and twice visited her home for sex. He also threatened to release confidential information about the woman to her employer unless she met with him, the panel heard, he asked me what kind of men I liked, questioned my sexual preferences and was being quite flirty.
An Emotional Pistorius.
Oscar Pistorius was told he will face trial for the murder of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in March as he appeared in court today - the same day that would have been her 30th birthday. Wiping tears from his eyes, a visibly emotional Pistorius stood silently in the dock as he was formally indicted for premeditated murder at Pretoria Magistrates' Court. The 26-year-old Paralympian, from South Africa, is accused of shooting Ms Steenkamp to death at their home on Valentine's night, but claims he opened fire on the 29-year-old after mistaking her for an intruder. And after a hush finally descended on the packed courtroom, the judge set his trial to run from March 3 to March 20 next year at North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria.
The congregation at the Winners' Chapel International, one of the fastest growing pentecostal churches in Britain, roared and sang as a warm-up act hollered "shout Allelujah!" through an echoing amplifier. Backstage Bishop David Oyedepo, a 58-year old man in a crisp light cream suit with a beaming smile and a personal fortune estimated by Forbes at over £90m, approached the main hall encircled by his entourage to give his first sermon of a marathon of services dubbed the 2013 European Winners' Convention, which ends on Saturday. More than 5,000 pentecostalists are expected to absorb Oyedepo's prosperity gospel and it is a congregation that is proving ever more generous towards the Lagos-based preacher. Oyedepo's UK branch has received more than £16m in tithes between 2008 and 2011. Over £1m of that money has been returned to his Nigerian operation. As the worshippers arrived – mostly Nigerians and west Africans living in Britain – they were given credit card forms to make donations, inscribed with a verse from Corinthians: "God loveth a cheerful giver." But the booming British operation of Oyedepo, who flies on private jets and runs a 50,000-seat mega church in Lagos, is being looked at by the Charity Commission.
