Kim Kardashian 'mentally prepared' for rape during Paris heist
Kim Kardashian West says she "mentally prepped" herself to be raped while being held at gunpoint during a Paris jewelry heist last year while opening up about the ordeal she calls a "life changing experience".
Kim was robbed at gunpoint in the French capital last year says two robbers wearing police uniforms entered her hotel room last October. One of the robbers duct-taped her mouth while she was in bed, grabbed her legs and pulled her toward him. She says she wasn't raped, but had a gun held to her head.
Kardashian West says the men picked her up and put her in a bathtub before making off with jewelry.
Hours before she opened up about the experience on her reality TV show 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' on Sunday (19.03.17), the 36-year-old reality TV star took to Twitter to address her fans.
She wrote: "Tonight's episode is going to be very tough for me. However, I thought it was important to share this story through my eyes & not in an interview where my own words could be twisted
"I have always shared so much & I'm not going to hold back when this was probably one of the most life changing experiences for me.
"I would never wish this experience upon anyone, but have learned some valuable lessons &feel so blessed to be safe home w my babies & husband
"To my friends, family, and loved ones I can't thank you enough for being there when I needed you the most.
"To the French police, thank you for your incredible hard work (sic)."
Meanwhile, Kim's mother Kris Jenner recently admitted she feared her daughter would die when she was tied up and had her jewels stolen from her hotel in Paris.
She said: "It's been the most devastating thing to have one of your children fear for their life thinking at any moment they were going to die when they have two small children.
"For the rest of us, the thought of losing Kim is emotionally scarring and hard to overcome ... That's it, I can't talk about it anymore."
Speaking previously, Kim admitted she "knew something wasn't right" just before the whole terrifying incident happened.
She recalled: "I'm calling to them [her sister and assistant], like, 'Hello? Hello?' And there's no answer. And then at that moment when there wasn't an answer, my heart started to get really tense. Like, you know [when] your stomach just kind of knots up and you're like, 'OK, what's going on?' I knew something wasn't quite right.
"[I saw] two guys holding another guy down, in police uniforms, right outside of my bedroom, five feet away ... The guy came in and grabbed the phone from me, threw me on the bed, and I was like, 'This is it.' I couldn't understand them, they couldn't understand me. What I've heard from talking to [the concierge] afterwards is they said, 'Where is the rapper's wife? Let us up to her room.'"

Not all, but many of the temporary teachers who have been wishing to become permanent, no doubt, appointed on the basis of their political ideologies. They couldn't succeed in the examinations despite repeated attempts. They carried the bags of those parties during their teaching career.
The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

To dogs, with love
Many find talking about basic animal rights stupid when no basic rights of people are guaranteed. However, there are still few people who are aware how humane behavior has turned toward cruelty and indifference which can be vividly seen through the way street dogs and other animals are abused around us.

Although they seem to be very much communist while in opposition, whether about the 'Indian semi-colonial status' in Nepal or American hegemony, this has never been evident while they actually come into power and rule Nepal.

What we need to learn from Thailand?
Thailand is a developing country. But it seemed like a developed country at first sight. It is hard to believe that Thailand is a developing country. There are big buildings, and clean and broad roads. The city is clean with no trace of pollution.

As busy and hassling as the traffic system in Kathmandu is, the Traffic Police here have to handle an equally strenuous job. Over 1,400 traffic officers in and around the Kathmandu Valley battle against the pestering traffic and air pollution each day.
