Snoop Dogg says he has quit smoking weed after his family pleaded with him to stop.
Snoop Dogg has revealed that he’s given up smoking weed after his family begged him to. The rapper, who is also known as Snoop Lion, made the announcement during a radio interview on Sirius XM in the US. He told host Sway Calloway: “I’m completely off the weed. I’m not smoking it no more. I’ve been through this struggle for 20 years now and I decided it was time for me to just be a good example to my kids and my family and my friends and my fans. So I decided not to smoke no more.”
He added: “It ain’t easy but I done did it…it was one of them things where [my wife] was telling me you know, ‘You got kids now, you got all these people around you, look at what they doing.’ And then she said ‘You need to be an example’. So then she just kept saying that over and over again until one day…I woke up.”
“It wasn’t easy but it’s like anything else,” he continued. “When you want something bad enough you can do it.”
ICC Bans Sri Lanka from Cricket for 8 years
The International Cricket Council has announced a decision to ban Sri Lanka from international cricket for two years due to government interference in the country’s cricket board. ICC also decided to suspend the Sri Lankan Cricket (SLC) with immediate effect, while the committee appointed by the ICC will run cricket in Sri Lanka during this period. The ban on SLC will end on 31 December 2020 and it is likely that SLC will be reinstated as a member of ICC after the completion of this period.
Sri Lanka’s cricket board is banned from international cricket by the International Cricket Council (ICC) following government interference in its affairs.
What is Sri Lankan Cricket?
Sri Lankan Cricket is an administrative body that runs all domestic and international competitions played in Sri Lanka. It was formed in July 2018 when the Board of Control for Cricket in Sri Lanka (BCCSL) was dissolved following allegations of corruption, nepotism and sexual harassment.
The ban came into effect on 27 October 2018, with immediate effect. The decision was made by an independent three-man committee appointed by ICC chairman Shashank Manohar. This committee included former New Zealand captain Martin Crowe, former Australian batsman Greg Chappell and former West Indies bowler Roger Harper.
Reaction: The government reacted sharply against this decision saying that they were not consulted before taking such a drastic step. The president Maithripala Sirisena also said that he would take up this issue at an appropriate level with all stakeholders involved.
Suella Braverman, MP for Fareham, was sacked as a PPS in November 2020.
Suella Braverman was sacked as a Parliamentary Private Secretary in November 2020 after she refused to apologise for comparing Boris Johnson to Donald Trump. The Conservative MP had told Sky News that the PM should “apologise” for failing to stand up to the US President over his comments on Saudi Arabia. She also said that Mr Johnson had shown “weakness” and “a lack of leadership”. Her comments were made just days after the President caused outrage by claiming that Prince Mohammed bin Salman may have known about the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Ms Braverman’s dismissal came just hours after she wrote an article for The Sunday Times saying Mr Johnson should not apologise for speaking out against Donald Trump’s remarks about Saudi Arabia. In her article, Ms Braverman said: “If we are going to achieve a better future we need leaders who are willing to take on this president and others like him around the world.”
“Theresa May’s failure last week to condemn his latest misogynistic insults towards women politicians across Europe shows weakness from our prime minister and a lack of leadership. Instead of apologising, she should be standing up against this president’s behaviour.”

Sam Altman was fired as president of Y Combinator after a sexual harassment investigation.
Sam Altman, the president of Silicon Valley startup incubator Y Combinator, was fired in early 2021 after an internal investigation found that he had sexually harassed multiple female employees at the company. The investigation found that Altman had made inappropriate comments to multiple women at the company and touched one woman inappropriately. Y Combinator’s CEO, Michael Seibel, announced Altman’s firing on Twitter on February 1st. He also stated that the incubator would be implementing “a new HR system and process” as well as taking “other steps to make sure nothing like this happens again.”
Altman is a well-known figure in Silicon Valley, thanks to his involvement with Y Combinator. The incubator has helped launch many successful companies over the years including Airbnb, Dropbox and Reddit. It has also been criticized for its role in funding startups with male-dominated boards and its practice of accepting more than 50% of its companies without an interview process.
