(Video) Billionaire Yusaku Meizawa Is Looking For 8 People To Join Him On A Trip Around The Moon



A Japanese billionaire, Yusaku Maezawa, offers the opportunity for eight lucky individuals to follow the expedition to the moon.

The fashion tycoon was previously announced as the first man to book a place in SpaceX’s Starship rocket in 2008. Maezawa has already made an undisclosed payment for the mission and it is expected to be launched in 2023.

On Wednesday, through a video on Youtube, the 45-year-old revealed the application process for those interested in joining his mission.

“I’m inviting you to join me on this mission. Eight of you from all around the world,” Maezawa said in the video.

It is said that his project, called dearMoon, will now fly from 10 to 12 people in all.

“It will be 10 to 12 people in all, but I will be inviting 8 people to come along on the ride.

“I have also bought all the seats, so it will be a private jet,” he said.

According to Maezawa, the dearMoon mission will take three days to fly to the moon, loop behind it in orbit, and then spend three days returning.

“This mission we expect people will go further than any human has ever gone from planet Earth,” said Elon Musk.

Messi Ready For World Cup Qualifiers, Says Argentina Boss



CARACAS, Sep 2 — Lionel Messi will be fit to play in all three of Argentina’s World Cup qualifiers against Venezuela, Brazil and Bolivia, Albiceleste head coach Lionel Scaloni said on Wednesday.

The 34-year-old forward has not started a match since the Copa America final on July 10, in which Argentina beat Brazil 1-0 at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana stadium. His only competitive appearances since then came in a 25-minute cameo for new club Paris Saint-Germain in their 2-0 Ligue 1 win at Reims on Sunday.

“From my conversations with him, there are no doubts whatsoever,” Xinhua quoted Scaloni telling a virtual news conference. “He hasn’t had many minutes but he is going to play and hopefully he will do so in all three games.”

Argentina will meet Venezuela in Caracas on Thursday and Brazil in Sao Paulo on Sunday before a clash with Bolivia in Buenos Aires on Sept 9.

Scaloni said he also expects Aston Villa pair Emiliano Martinez and Emiliano Buendia to feature in all three games despite a request by the Premier League club for the pair to miss the duel with Bolivia.

But the manager will be without central defender Cristian Romero and midfielder Leandro Paredes for the matches due to suspension.

“Tomorrow’s game (Thursday) will be very difficult. Venezuela are in need of points and have a strong team,”  Scaloni said.

Argentina are currently second in the South American zone qualifiers for next year’s World Cup, six points behind leaders Brazil.

Muhammad Faris Nabil’s 21-Day Sacrifice To Ward Off Invisible Enemy



KODIANG,  Sept 2 — Muhammad Faris Nabil Zaidi  went “missing” for 21 days from his house in Kampung Siputeh near here, sacrificing the comfort of home, out of a sense of responsibility to keep villagers  safe from the invisible ‘enemy’.

The 20-year-old man was among 23 youths who volunteered to take turns to man a checkpoint set up by Kampung Siputeh Rukun Tetangga Community (KRT) from last Aug 7 to 27 to prevent COVID-19 from spreading into the village.

“I felt like I was an army recruit having to face the enemy while controlling traffic entering the village when manning the checkpoint, which  set up at the main road leading to the village.

“I volunteered to do it because I feel it is my responsible to protect the villagers and their families from this very dangerous and invisible enemy called COVID-19,” said Muhammad Faris Nabil when met by Bernama.

He said the KRT management provided a place for him and the other volunteers who manned the checkpoint to stay throughout the 21 days as they were not allowed to go home for the  safety of their respective family members.

“It’s a small sacrifice, but I feel very happy and proud to be able to do my bit to ensure the safety of the villagers from COVID-19,” he added.

Muhammad Faris Nabil said he asked for his mother’s permission before joining the other volunteers to man the checkpoint.

“Since I could not go home, she would call me everyday to ask about my condition, whether I was okay, had taken my meals, but the most meaningful lesson I got when I was one of the volunteers at the checkpoint is that it teaches me to be more disciplined, trustworthy and more responsible,” he added.

Meanwhile, vice-chairman of the village KRT, Fadilah Saad said residents in the village, especially the young people, are active in volunteer activities.

 “Those who volunteered to man the checkpoint did it voluntarily. They are not paid any allowance,” he said, adding the checkpoint was set up with the permission of the police and the Health Ministry.

He said the volunteers took turns to man the checkpoint, with three people on duty every four hours.

The volunteers also conduct patrols in the village.

He said outsiders could not enter the village if they had no important matters to attend to and delivery of goods in the village was allowed only until up to the checkpoint to avoid outsiders bringing the virus into the village.

“If there is a need to pay delivery charges, anyone who works at the control post will pay first and the KRT management will refund it. The package will then be sanitised before it is sent to the recipient,”  he added.

(Video) Panta Petrovic, Man Who Has Been Practicing Social Distancing For 20 Years



Almost twenty years ago, a man named Panta Petrovic made social distancing a lifestyle choice. He opted for a socially distanced and self-isolated life when he moved to cave top in the Stara Planina mountains in Serbia. His home on the mountain has a unique tree-climb entrance. He does not often come out for purchases as he gets welfare and food donations reached to him.

When asked about his hermitage, Petrovic explained that he wanted to live a life without his wife, neighbors, or police intervention. He lived a normal life before he started living in a cave. Petrovic worked as a laborer on the black market and had married thrice. However, he found freedom and solace away from society.

While taking up cave life he also gave up his earning to build three small bridges across the town. He believes ‘money is cursed’ and it only corrupts people. Petrovic feeds mostly on leftovers in the town bins. Sometimes, he walks around the forest to collect mushrooms and fish from a nearby lake. He also owns a herd of goats, a flock of chickens, three kittens, and a wild boar named Mara. They lived in the cave until a few of them were slaughtered by wolves, which prompted Petrovic to move them to a shack across the town. He heavily relies on donations to feed his animals.

He came out after 20 years to get his COVID-19 vaccine and also urged other residents to get their due doses. Towards the conclusion of his interview with the news agency, Petrovic reiterated his stance on vaccines. He called the anti-vaxxers fussy and directed them to get their jabs too. The vaccines are to eradicate the disease and urged every citizen to get their due jabs.
