“World renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76.

He died peacefully at his home in Cambridge in the early hours of Wednesday, his family said.

The British scientist was famed for his work with black holes and relativity, and wrote several popular science books including A Brief History of Time.”

“It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love.” – Stephen Hawking

“My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.” – Stephen Hawking

“Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny.” – Stephen Hawking

“One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose, and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.” – Stephen Hawking

Falsely accused Belfast man slams vigilante paedophile hunters…

01) Falsely accused Belfast man slams vigilante paedophile hunters

“A Belfast law graduate has called for new legislation to curb vigilante paedophile hunters after he was wrongly identified as a sexual predator and falsely accused of grooming children.

The Queen’s University graduate was left confused following a sudden influx of friend requests on social media, before it became apparent that he shared the same name as one of the vigilante group’s targets.

A barrage of profane abuse soon followed.

The wrongly-identified man voiced his “vehement” opposition to those presenting themselves as “protectors of the community” and branded their online activities as an incitement of “citizen led violence”. He warned that online outrage quickly morphs into calls for “justice outside the law” from members of the public and accused those in the group of falsely claiming that their chief concern is children’s welfare.

“These groups, in their quest to publicly shame individuals, are self-serving attention seeking bullies and thugs more concerned with tabloid and online social media titillation than they are with the protection and safeguarding of children,” he wrote on Facebook.

The unsuspecting target of online hate made clear he was not defending anyone who commits sexual offences, but rather their right to due process, and said there is no point trying to reason with his critics.

“Unfortunately it doesn’t matter what you say, you’ll never convince these types of people that what they are doing is wrong,” he said. The innocent victim is now calling for legislation to curtail vigilante groups who he warned could accuse anyone and have the potential to destroy lives.”
