On March 03, 2016, I blogged about plus-sized Ashley Graham being featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated
 
A day after my post, Ebony magazine revealed their groundbreaking March 2016 cover, and it had on its cover, four full-figured black women: designer and style blogger Gabi Gregg (known professionally as Gabifresh), Orange is the New Black actress Danielle Brooks and R&B singers Jazmine Sullivan and Chrisette Michele.
 
It’s really nice to know that we are learning to accept that beauty is not only defined as just being slim, slender or svelte.
 
Apple Inc’s software chief had weighed in on the escalating fight between his company (and much of the technology industry) and the US Department of Justice.
 
Craig Federighi, lead architect of Apple’s mobile operating software issued a timely warning that creating a backdoor into the iPhone could threaten the safety of millions, arguing that hackers and criminals can attack all kinds of sensitive networks through just one person’s mobile device. 
 
The US government are trying to use a court order to compel Apple to help them crack an iPhone used in a 2015 California shooting. In an opinion piece in the Washington Post, the Apple senior vice president argued that law enforcement agencies were effectively asking the company to “turn back the clock to a less-secure time”.
 
In Saturday’s Scottish Premiership game between Celtic and Partick Thistle, the former had won 2-1.

Leigh Griffiths scored first in the forty-fifth minute and then, Callum McGregor struck the second goal in the fifty-fourth minute. Sean Welsh pulled a goal back for Thistle with a penalty six minutes from time after Erik Sviatchenko was harshly done for dragging back Steven Lawless.
