Photos: Two Brothers Get Crushed In Their Sleep By 16-Foot Python

Police in Canada are looking into the deaths of two young boys who appear to have been strangled by a python.
The boys, ages 5 and 7, were found dead Monday morning at an apartment in Campbellton, New Brunstwick. They had been sleeping over at a friend's apartment above a reptile store called the Reptile Ocean.

Early indications suggest that the python from the store escaped its enclosure, got into the ventilation system, then the apartment.
It then fell through the ceiling, dropped onto the small boys from above and strangled the two boys.

The python has been captured, and police have the snake in their possession.

Meanwhile, the store, Reptile Ocean Inc., offered condolences on its Facebook page before the page shut down."deepest symphathies goes out to the family of the children. a terrible accident without a meaning. this page will be shut down temporarily to avoid any further demeaning comments. you should be ashamed of yourselves," the post read."we all have a heavy heart today. as anyone would. and attacks on the animals owner are unneccesary."

10 yrs old Nigerian Girl Zuriel Oduwole Makes Forbes History

Zuriel Elise Oduwole, an amazing 10-year-old of Nigerian-American heritage, has made history as the youngest person ever to be interviewed in Forbes.
The interview with the award winning documentary film maker, conference speaker and writer is featured in the August 2013 edition of Forbes Africa.

At just 10, whiz kid Zuriel possesses amazing talent that has resulted in her interviewing business leaders, current and past world leaders and heads of states.

They include the current Presidents of Tanzania, Mauritius, and Malawi–one of Africa’s only two female national leaders. Others are ex-presidents Jerry John Rawlings and John Kufuor of Ghana.
Zuriel has also had a one-on-one interview with Africa’s most successful businessman, Mr. Aliko Dangote. She even got a standing ovation for her sets of provoking and creatively intelligent questions to tennis superstars, Venus & Serena Williams, during their world press conference in Nigeria. 

Zuriel says she has not been granted an interview by the President of Nigeria because of his busy schedules but hopes to achieve that soon. 

Zuriel (which is Hebrew for God is my Rock) believes if she can walk a mile, then there are girls who on seeing her work and progress made, would walk a mile and half.
