Prince Harry has been named the most eligible bachelor of 2013.

Prince Harry, 28, beat out 39 other famous faces, including George Clooney and Conor Kennedy (best known for briefly dating Taylor Swift), to be named Town & Country’s most eligible bachelor.

And although the Prince is best known for his scandalous behavior, the magazine says that that’s all part of his charm.

“He’s the wild-card royal, the naughty one, the one who goes out with rah women, hangs out with a fast crowd, downs too many drinks, and goes home at the wrong moment.  That’s why we all like him best,” Town & Country said.

Other royals on the list include Prince Carl Philip of Sweden, Prince Philippos of Greece and Denmark, and Prince Amedeo of Belgium.

Story Of Manti Te’o Girlfriend and Her Death was a Hoax

 

 

Notre Dame says a story about Manti Te’os girlfriend dying, which he said inspired him to play better as he helped the Fighting Irish get to the BCS National Championship, turned out to be a hoax apparently perpetrated against the linebacker.

The university issued a news release Wednesday after Deadspin.com reported it could find no record of Lennay Kekua existing.

Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick said in a news conference Wednesday night that coaches were informed by Te’o and his parents on Dec. 26 that Te’o had been the victim of what appeared to be a hoax. Someone using a fictitious name “apparently ingratiated herself” with Te’o, the school said, then conspired with others to lead him to believe she had died of leukemia.

“On the morning of Dec. 26, very early morning, Manti called his coaches to inform them that while he was in attendance at the ESPN awards show in Orlando, he received a phone call from a number he recognized as having been that he associated with Lennay Kekua,” Swarbrick said. “When he answered it, it was a person whose voice sounded like the same person he had talked to, who told him that she was, in fact, not dead. Manti was very unnerved by that, as you might imagine.”

There hasn’t been any word from Manti yet at this point but many speculate that he faked a death of his girlfriend just to gain sympathy and gain Heisman votes. Its even said that Manti hasnt met his girlfriend.They only talk through via twitter and on the phone.

The Supreme Court issued a statement saying,” That President Hugo Chavez’s does not have an absence or uninterupted term.” It means, since he has been approved by the people and his term was not interupted he does not have to get sworn in,

Some people find that unconstitutional.

Jan.10 marks the begining of new constitutional period. The Venezuelan Constitution calls for presidents to be sworn in at the National Assembly on Jan.10.

There have been many concerns with Chavez health. Chavez is recovering from surgery and has possession of his mental faculties. He has been suffering from respiratory insufficiency. He has not been seen or heard from since, Dec.10.2012. This will put him at a great risk of losing his power.

If Chavez is unable to swear in, then the power will be transfered to the legislative branch. That will cause a lot of problems in the system.
