Could A Dead Animal Kill A Promising Model's Career Before It Really Gets Started?

Posted: Updated:
There were winners and there were losers at the World Cup this year and not all of them were on the field! We were all fixated on our computer screens, watching all the photos of horrified Brazilian team fans whose faces were contorted as they experienced being crushed by Germany. But, those weren't the only sets of photos released that had people glued to their computer screens.

Meet 17-year-old Belgian fan Axelle Despiegelaere, one of those off the field winners. When photos surfaced of her, cheering her team on during the Group H match between Russia and Belgium, L'Oreal took notice and offered her a modeling contract. Not only that, but the popularity of the photo sparked a fan page on Facebook that already has almost 300,000 likes.


Here's where things take a turn though (and a great social media teaching moment for the kiddos): all that notoriety may mean that her modeling career is killed before it gets started! Another photo of the modeling hopeful has surfaced and this time instead of celebrating the national team... she's grinning with a rifle, and a kill in Africa (this photo via her Facebook page).

L'Oreal hasn't officially responded to the release of this latest photo but the company is a well-known advocate of animal rights. What do you think? Should this be enough for Axelle to get the Axe or is it a non-issue?

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    A jury took only about 90 minutes Tuesday to convict former New York City Councilman Daniel Halloran of bribery charges in a scheme to buy a spot on the mayoral ballot for state Sen. Malcolm Smith. Halloran was also found guilty of taking payoffs from what he thought were developers who wanted him to funnel city money their way. The men were actually an FBI agent and an FBI informant.
