My grandfather Pollant Jabavu Mpofu was the general secretary of agriculture and plantation workers, and deputy general of culture and arts in Zimbabwe back in 1973, he hated Mugabe and was jailed for political reasons, when he came back home he with his daughters (my mother and aunts) he found grenades in his backyard, that's when my grandfather said enough and moved my whole family to Denmark on political assylum given by the Queen of Denmark (bless her) later moving to the UK, he ran away with his "boss" that later became the vice president, Mugabe asked my grandfather and his boss to come back, my grandfather said "I will never serve under Mugabe" but his boss moved back and became the vice president, all i remember as a kid in Zimbabwe is grilled corn, toy cars made of wire and tanks/military veichles shooting tear gas grenades out when they demonstrated against Mugabe, a few got killed other where jailed for opposing this disgusting dictator. His people starve while he has multiple villas and penthouses around the world, he is one of the most disgusting people on earth after Kim and Hitler.

On Ting's part, I'm not sure the video content is the kind that inspires one to subscribe - association with economic lack almost makes me want to avoid them. Not a smart move in view 👎

THE $1 BILLION NORTH KOREAN BANK HEIST

Bangladesh, February 7th, 2016.

The director of the Bangladesh Central Bank got off the elevator on the ninth floor, and headed to the back office of the Accounts and Budgeting Department - this was the most restricted part of the building. He was there to deal with a problem; one that had been plaguing the office the last few days. You see… the printer wasn’t working; this was kind of a big deal. It was causing a real disruption.

The automated printer (which was hooked up to the bank’s software) was supposed to work round the clock, 24/7, printing out the bank’s transaction reports in real-time; due to this technical glitch however, the printer tray remained empty.

Much of the day was spent trying to fix the issue; and after a great deal of effort, there was success - they were able to restart the printer. And so the backlog of transaction reports started rolling out, one by one. Now, it soon became apparent that something wasn’t quite right. There were more statements than expected....
