Wes Welker’s Wife Apologizes For Dissing Ray Lewis On Facebook

Wes Welker's Wife Apologizes For Dissing Ray Lewis On FacebookIn the hours after the Patriots lost the AFC championship, Wes Welker’s wife, Anna, had the following to say on Facebook:

“Proud of my husband and the Pats. By the way, if anyone is bored, please go to Ray Lewis’ Wikipedia page. 6 kids 4 wives. Acquitted for murder. Paid a family off. Yay. What a hall of fame player! A true role model!”

‘Conflicted’

You can understand why Mrs. Welker would be so frustrated; she’s not the only one conflicted about the praise being lavished on the controversial (and, over her husband’s team, victorious) Ray Lewis. Alas, there will be much more to deal with before the game is over.


‘Emotional and irrational’

Later, Anna Welker apologized, saying in a statement:

“I’m deeply sorry for my recent post on Facebook. I let the competitiveness of the game and the comments people were making about a team I dearly love get the best of me. My actions were emotional and irrational and I sincerely apologize to Ray Lewis and anyone affected by my comment after yesterday’s game.

“It is such an accomplishment for any team to make it to the NFL playoffs, and the momentary frustration I felt should not overshadow the accomplishments of both of these amazing teams.”

Well, some scathing words Anna Welker published on Facebook! But which side are you on — Team Welker or Team Lewis?

Waterless Shower Now Possible

With inspiration from a friend too lazy to take a shower and a few months of research on the Internet, South African university student Ludwick Marishane has won global recognition for an invention that takes the water out of bathing.

Marishane, a 22-year-old student at the University of Cape Town student invented a product called DryBath, a clear gel applied to skin that does the work of water and soap. The invention, which won Marishane the 2011 Global Student Entrepreneur of the Year Award, has wide applications in Africa and other parts of the developing world where basic hygiene is lacking and hundreds of millions of people do not have regular access to water.


The product differs from the anti-bacterial hand washes by eliminating the heavy alcohol smell. It creates an odourless, biodegradable cleansing film with moisturisers.

Marishane used his web-enabled mobile phone to search through Google and Wikipedia in pursuit of a formula. Six months later, he came up with DryBath and a obtained a patent. The product is now manufactured commercially with clients including major global airlines for use on long-haul flights and governments for its soldiers in the field. Marishane also sees it helping conserve water in the poorest parts of the world.

Would you use DryBath as substitute for a real shower during a long travel? Do you think Marishane’s invention will go a long way in helping communities?
