Nike Sues Company Which Made Wildly Popular “Satan Shoes” Containing Human Blood In Collaboration With Lil Nas X

 

Nike has filed a lawsuit against a company that released the controversial and wildly popular “Satan Shoes” purported to contain a drop of human blood as part of a collaboration with “Old Town Road” rapper Lil Nas X.

The controversial sneakers are modified Nike Air Max 97s that contain red ink, “one drop of human blood” in the sole, a pentagram pendant and a reference to Luke 10:18, a Bible verse about Satan’s fall from heaven. The back of one shoe says “MSCHF” and the other says “Lil Nas X.”

The Satan Shoes were released on Monday by MSCHF, a New-York based company that said it is producing only 666 limited edition pairs.

Ironically, according to several media outlets the shoes sold out in less than one minute after being released despite costing US$1,018 per pair.

While the “Satan Shoes” have been a huge commercial success, Nike has received a lot of backlash from many people, particularly Christians, who erroneously believed that Nike was involved in the controversial devil themed sneakers.

The athletic shoe maker filed a lawsuit against MSCHF on Monday arguing that the company infringed on and diluted its trademark with the black-and-red, devil-themed shoes. However, Lil Nas X was not named as a defendant. Part of Nike’s lawsuit reads,

“In fact, there is already evidence of significant confusion and dilution occurring in the marketplace, including calls to boycott Nike in response to the launch of MSCHF’s Satan Shoes based on the mistaken belief that Nike has authorized or approved this product,”

Nike asked the court to immediately stop MSCHF from fulfilling orders for the shoes and requested a jury trial to seek damages.

After filing the lawsuit, Nike also released a statement in which it reiterated that it is in no way affiliated with the Satan Shoes.

“We don’t have any further details to share on pending legal matters. However, we can tell you we do not have a relationship with Lil Nas X or MSCHF.”

MSCHF is yet to comment on the lawsuit. Lil Nas X, on the other hand, appeared to laugh off the lawsuit. He tweeted a short clip from the cartoon “SpongeBob SquarePants,” in which a character says: “I was just kidding. … You guys know I was just kidding, right?”

 

However, critics have accused Lil Nas X of using the Satan Shoes as a marketing gimmick for his music. The release of the Satan Shoes coincides with the 21-year-old Grammy-winning rapper’s latest single, “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).”

The music video for Montero has garnered more than 40 million views since its release on Friday. In the video, Lil Nas X’s character appears to have fallen into hell where he will be dancing suggestively and giving the devil a lap dance.

    How I Saved My Online Business On The Verge Of Collasping

    How I Saved My Online Business On The Verge Of Collasping

    “How I Saved My Online Business That Was On The Verge Of Collapsing, I Almost Shut It Down But Later Got Help”

    How I Saved My Online Business On The Verge Of Collasping
    How I Saved My Online Business On The Verge Of Collasping

    I had a cosmetic shop which most of the times I advertised it through my website where clients frequently visited the website to book various products of their choice. The business had some challenges hence I saw the website as the only thing that would save my business.

    Things were actually not adding up as I was expecting the business to bring much capital but according to how things were going, nothing was really coming out.

    No one visited and booked my various cosmetic products through my website. I was really counting losses and I had to come up with a solution to capture my customers. As time went by, the idea of closing that business really ran my mind as I had no other left option since huge bills had pilled hence I did not have any other way to pay them as the business I was expecting to yield capital had gone down.

    I had invested more money in buying my cosmetic stock and at the same time the website had costed thousands of money despite the business not yielding as expected. Lenders who and other SACCOS who had granted me loans to run the business became more aggressive as they pressurized me to pay their loans through daily phone calls and messages each day. This did not give me an ample time to even rest or eat. I was afraid even to walk in town as I imagined the police with the help of the loan granters would arrest me at any particular time. I had started selling part of my cosmetics so that I would sustain my life since things were really tough.

    No one was really coming to my rescue.

    Depression on how I was to revive the business gave me sleepless nights as I deeply fell in deep thought since I had no money to sustain it.

    I happened to share my story with Fridah who was really sorry for my condition. She told me that she was going to offer me a lifetime solution to my problem as she had once gone through the same but Kiwanga doctors revived her business once more. She gave me Kiwanga doctors contacts which I called and booked an appointment with no delay.

    After three days I was at their offices in Kericho County. They assessed me and later I was attended to. They gave me an assurance that my business was going to be a big deal and what I was experiencing were just shadows which by their help it was the beginning of a new day. I went back home with much high hope and faith that the business would transform plus now the website would sell than before. Three days later, I had received 200 orders by different clients to deliver different cosmetics something that I had never experienced before. It was a true indication that that Kiwanga doctors were really the new deal in town.

    The business really returned to normality as I was even able to pay all my loans from various granters plus I opened other cosmetic shops. I really thank Kiwanga doctors for their help and since then my website was now busy as it flocked clients who wanted my products at any particular moment.

    Kiwanga doctors help you solve various life challenges like depression that might be brought maybe due to lack of money and domestic violence at a glance. They also ensure your property is protected and it is not prone to thieves and other destroyers at each moment.

    Zimbabwe’s road infrastructure has continued on a downslope, getting degraded by the huge influx of traffic and no refurbishment or servicing at all.

    Traffic jams are the order of the day with a 20-minute trip taking more than an hour especially during peak hours, especially in the capital.

    Such is the case of Zimbabwe’s busiest city, Harare, whose population growth is at 0.60% from last year’s 2 million.

    The pressure it put on the state’s subsidised public limited transport, ZUPCO and the unreliable private commuter omnibuses or Kombis is unbearable.

    All the problems may finally get solved if the proposed Harare Metrorail project by Light Rail Private Limited in partnership with Harare City Council and the Ministry of Transport comes to life.

    iHarare has seen the concept proof of the project that hopes to be the first of its kind in the country once it is approved by the powers that be.

    The project proposes to build the light electric railway system in three phases, covering mostly high-density locations in the city.

    The railway line will have a high impact in transforming Zimbabwe’s capital city to achieve its SDG goals and meeting its target of becoming an upper-middle-income economy by 2030.

    See video of the concept below;

    What is your take on this initiative, should the government approve the construction of Zimbabwe’s first “world-class train and spaghetti road” or it’s just another one of those dreams we will never see in our lifetime?

    Here Is How To Freeze, Reverse A Transaction If You Send EcoCash To The Wrong Person

    EcoCash Users Can Now Reverse Transactions

    How To Freeze, Reverse A Transaction If You Send EcoCash To The Wrong Person

    How To Freeze, Reverse A Transaction If You Send EcoCash To The Wrong Person

     

    One of the most frustrating experiences for mobile money users is when you mistakenly send money to the wrong person on EcoCash. Granted, this is something that should be avoidable, but you will be surprised at the number of people who do this when they do a transaction while absent-minded. 

    Thankfully, EcoCash has introduced a new feature which allows users to reverse the transaction and freeze the money they would have sent to the wrong person in error. And even better, the feature does not require an internet connection as it can be done via USSD using any type of phone.

     

    How To Reverse EcoCash Transactions, Retrieve Money Sent To the Wrong Person

     

    1. Dial *900#
    2. On the menu options select Option 4: Self Help/Reversal
    3. Then Select Option 1: Submit A Reversal
    4. You will then be asked to enter the transaction reference number/ approval code. On the text messages that a user receives after completing an EcoCash transaction, this is the set of numbers and letters that start after Txn ID e.g. MP210304.1412.L06729
    5. After entering the transaction reference the funds will be immediately frozen and the receiver will be unable to spend them. At this point, the person who received the money will get a message asking them to authorise the reversal.

    Please note, the money will not be reversed until the other party authorises the reversal. This was done to prevent dishonest people from paying for goods or services and then surreptitiously taking back their money.

    How To Freeze, Reverse A Transaction If You Send EcoCash To The Wrong Person

    How To Approve An EcoCash Reversal If You Are The Person Who Received The Money In Error

    1. Dial *900#
    2. On the menu options select Option 4: Self Help/Reversal
    3. Then Select Option 1: Approve A Reversal Of A Transaction
    4. You will then be shown the transaction which needs to be reversed, or perhaps a list of all the pending reversals.
    5. Verify the transaction details and confirm. The money will be reversed and sent back to the sender’s EcoCash wallet.

     

    Why Is It Important For EcoCash Users To Reverse Transactions This Way

    Getting money reversed after sending to the wrong person is usually a headache for the sender, as they often have to go to the Econet offices. This often means enduring standing in extremely long queues at Econet shops.  

    Although the mobile money company provides a toll-free customer support service and support via various social media platforms, these don’t seem to work as advertised as the customer service representatives seem vastly under-resourced and under massive pressure.

    Where there is no dispute between the sender the receiver, where both parties are in agreement that the money was sent in error, then the transaction can be reversed with no hassles.

    However, if the receiver is unwilling to approve the EcoCash reversal you will have to get support from EcoCash. The great thing is that the receiver will not be able to use the money because it will be frozen, provided you initiated the transaction reversal in a timely manner.

    Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos Resigns As CEO, Critics Claim The Move Is To Clean Up His Soiled Name

    Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos Resigns As CEO, Critics Claim The Move Is To Clean Up His Soiled Name

    Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos Resigns As CEO In Surprise Email To Staff

    Amazon founder and world’s richest man has decided to step down from being the company’s CEO, a surprise email sent to his staff read on Wednesday morning.

    Jeff is set to become the company’s executive chairman and get replaced by Andy Jassy, who currently leads Amazon’s cloud computing business.

    “Fellow Amazonians:

    I’m excited to announce that this Q3 I’ll transition to Executive Chair of the Amazon Board and Andy Jassy will become CEO. In the Exec Chair role, I intend to focus my energies and attention on new products and early initiatives. Andy is well known inside the company and has been at Amazon almost as long as I have. He will be an outstanding leader, and he has my full confidence,” read the email.

    “As Exec Chair I will stay engaged in important Amazon initiatives but also have the time and energy I need to focus on the Day 1 Fund, the Bezos Earth Fund, Blue Origin, The Washington Post, and my other passions.

    “I’ve never had more energy, and this isn’t about retiring. I’m super passionate about the impact I think these organisations can have,” he added.

    This, after he single handedly led the company he started from his garage 3 decades ago to massive wealth.

    Jeff Bezos, recently stunned the world when he grabbed back his position as the World’s Richest Man after making tens of billions while the world was reeling over the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    His move to step down came as a surprise to many, but not his critics.

    Jeff’s unusual, incremental and often secretive approach on how he led his company to the top has made him more enemies that friends in the industry.

    He has previously been labelled abusive and predetory to his workers and competitors.

    This move left many of his critics unfazed.

    Rather, they think it was meant to clean up his tainted image.

    “Do not be fooled by Amazon. Jeff Bezos is still in a position of immense power as executive chair,” said Public Citizen, a US-based consumer rights activist group. “This abusive, predatory monopoly still needs a complete overhaul.”

    ZINARA Hikes Tollgate Fees, Introduces Foreign Currency Payments

     

    Motorists travelling on the country’s highways will now have to fork out extra monies after the Zimbabwe National Road Administration (ZINARA) hiked tollgate fees.

    ZINARA also introduced a dual pricing system whereby motorists will have an option to pay for toll fees in either local or foreign currency.

    According to statutory Instrument (SI), 32 of 2021 that came into effect at midnight light vehicles will now pay US$2, minibuses US$3, buses US$4, heavy vehicles US$5 while haulage trucks will be required to pay US$10.

    Previously tollgate fees were only pegged in local currency, light motor vehicles paid $120, minibuses $180, buses $240, heavy vehicles $300 and $590 for haulage trucks.

    The new toll fees will be denominated in US dollars and converted into the local currency at auction rates for those who wish to pay using local currency, swipe cards and mobile money.

    However, all foreign-registered vehicles shall pay for toll fees in forex only.

    This means at the prevailing auction exchange rate light vehicles will pay US dollar equivalent of $164, minibuses $246, buses $328, heavy vehicles $410 while haulage trucks are charged $820.

    In his 2021 nation budget, Minister of Finance and Economic Planning Prof Mthuli Ncube said Zinara would be permitted to collect toll fees in forex.

    Such foreign currency resources would enhance Zinara’s capacity to pay external debts. I, therefore, propose that toll fees be payable in foreign or local currencies at the Foreign Currency Auction Rate, he said.

    Zinara spokesperson Mr Tendai Mugabe yesterday told The Herald, that the dual pricing system was in tandem with the government’s vision to improve the state of roads in the counrty.

    We are calling it dual pricing where we are going to accept both foreign currency and Zim-dollar. It is effective today (yesterday) midnight. That is when we are going to change our systems at the tollgates, starting from midnight people will be paying local currency and foreign currency.

    In our view as Zinara, I think this is a very positive move considering that the Government has put road development at the heart of national development. So, we believe that the new toll tariffs are going to have a huge impact on the disbursements that we are providing to road authorities, he said.

    While Norton Member of Parliament and former ZANU PF provincial chairperson Hon. Temba Mliswa blasted the government and ZINARA for imposing their will on the people without consultations.

    The relevant Parly Committee should look into this sudden ZINARA tariff hike. We are not cattle that you push into the dip at your will and whim.

    Just waking up and announcing new charges without any consultation is wrong. Let’s have respect for people and pre-plan these things, he wrote on Twitter

    We Have NO Plans To Introduce $100, $200 Banknote: RBZ Refutes Reports

    No Plans To Introduce $100, $200 Banknote: RBZ Refutes Reports 

    No Plans To Introduce $100, $200 Banknote: RBZ Refutes Reports 

    The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) has denied media reports that it is working on introducing a $100 and $200 banknote. The central bank through its governor John Panonetsa Mangudya, however, conceded that it is working on introducing a $50 banknote.

    In a statement on Tuesday, RBZ governor John Mangudya said,

    FOR THE RECORD

    The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (the Bank) is working on the introduction of a Z$50 banknote into the market for the convenience of the public.

    For the time being, the Bank has no plans of introducing Z$100 and Z$200 banknotes as suggested in some sections of the media.

    The denial of the impending release of the new banknotes by the central bank comes just days after state-owned media reported that the central bank was going to release higher denomination banknotes and increase the physical money supply. According to the reports, this was being done to curb cash shortages and improve transacting convenience.

    Economist Eddie Cross, who is a member of the RBZ Monetary Policy Committee was quoted as saying that they were waiting on President Emmerson Mnangagwa to approve the design of the new notes. Cross is quoted by national broadcaster ZBC as saying,

    “The only new note which is due to come in shortly is the $50 note and I’m not certain when that is going to be available but it is in the process of preparation.

    “There are already plans to introduce some higher denomination notes this year.

    “Some time ago we made a decision in the MPC to introduce new $200, $100 and $50 notes.

    “I understand that this is being dealt with by the governor working with the President because the President has to approve the designs and everything else. But I understand that the $50 note will be available early in the new year.”

    The news of the impending release of the new banknotes was not welcomed by many. Some economists warned that the release of a $100 and $200 banknote would result in inflation.
