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.'"

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.

Effect of monetary policy on risk, stability and financial crises
The crisis of 2008–09 has reignited a new interest in understanding money and credit fluctuations in the macro economy, and the crucial roles they could play in the amplification, propagation, and generation of shocks both in normal times and, even more so, in times of financial distress. This may reopen a number of fundamental fault lines in modern macroeconomic thinking between theories that treat the financial system as irrelevant, or, at least, not central to the understanding of economic outcomes, and those that reserve a central role for financial intermediation.
The return trip
It took us over five hours, drenched in rain, walking through treacherous ratomato sluggishly. It should not have taken more than two hours in a normal day. It was the cruellest irony that no sooner did we reach Panchkhal and sat at the Pipal Chautari to rest, than the bus we had left behind, arrived with people in the bus bursting with laughter on seeing us.
Prospects for Nepali talents in the Diaspora
When Indu, a Nepali American teen studying in Virginia, asked Panta whether she could inspire Nepali youngsters into music industry and convince their parents to consider Nepali music as a path to professionalism, the female heartthrob of Nepali music could not fully convince her.
Traffic Police in Kathmandu
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.
Menstrual taboo outdated
I have seen my sisters and friends isolated and treated in discriminatory manner during their first menstruation cycle. They were not allowed to look at the sun, to touch water source, flower, fruits, any male family member, nor even hear their voice. The activist may claim the situation has changed and I do agree but still during every month my loved ones turns into untouchables beings.
