Prince Harry, who was in the Mercedes garage, congratulated Hamilton. He said: 'Lewis thank you very, very much for not making the British public sweat.
'You are an absolute legend. Well done mate.'
The win makes Hamilton the first British double champion since Jackie Stewart won his second title in 1971.
Hamilton's first championship victory came in 2008 when he scraped into fifth position to nick the title from then-Ferrari driver Felipe Massa's grasp at the final corner.

With a deep, smooth and jazzy voice, Bruce brings an impressive array of radio expertise to Inspiration F.M, after which he left for Beat FM in 2013 amidst controversy that he was very displeased with the way the management ran the radio station and was practically fed up.

May his soul rest in peace.

Aaliyah.fans react hilariously on twitter to the Lifetime movie.






 

Lifetime's controversial movie, “Aaliyah: Princess of R&B,” caused several related terms to trend on Twitter during its debut on Saturday night.

The trending topics included “#AaliyahMovie”; “Missy and Timbaland,” referring to Aaliyah's longtime producing partners; “RKelly,” her producer and husband by a marriage that was later annulled; and Wendy Williams, the talk show host who joined the project as an executive producer amid controversy, among other terms.



The huge amount of social activity surrounding the movie is the good news for Lifetime. The bad news is that many of the tweets were harsh. At one point in the evening, “#LifetimeDisrespectsAaliyah” was a trending topic, for example.

The negative fan reviews are just the topper of a controversial journey for the biopic. Not only was Aaliyah's family opposed to the movie, its first star, Disney Channel actress Zendaya Coleman, dropped out of the project amid controversy over her casting and her own personal issues over the production. That would be followed with further furor from fans when additional castings, particularly the movie's choice for Aaliyah's longtime producer Missy Elliott, led to accusations of “Hollywood colorism” and body bias.


Executive produced by Williams, Howard Braunstein and Debra Martin Chase, the two-hour movie is based on Christopher John Farley's bestselling book “Aaliyah: More Than a Woman.” It charts Aaliyah's life from the age of 10 when she appeared on “Star Search,” the path to her first album and R. Kelly, her meteoric rise and then to age 22 when she died in a plane crash in 2001.
Here's a sample of the tweets that filled Twitter timelines while the movie aired:

Dream wedding? Firm offers single women chance to be a bride WITHOUT a groom

So if you're thinking of what to do when all your friends are getting married and you are not, well this company has a crazy idea.

Travel company Cera Travel in Kyoto, a city in southern Japan, has launched "Solo Weddings", which they claim are perfect for women looking for the thrill and romance of a wedding, without actually having to tie the knot.

The two-day trip offers singletons a chance to enjoy all the fun and glamour of the special day, including spending their wedding night in a fancy hotel.
Clients also get the chance to have dress fittings, choose their own bouquets, get their hair and make-up done and even choose a man to accompany them for a photo shoot.


All the details are taken care of by wedding professionals and for those who don't want a traditional white wedding dress we offer our Geisha service, which sees the brides going on an historical photo shoot dressed up as Geishas."

Launched in June, the service is aimed at single, working women who have decided to pursue careers instead of follow the traditional Japanese route of getting married.
The company also hope to attract those who have been divorced but want a day to feel special again.

So far ten women have taken up the experience, which costs around £1,700.
Businesswoman Nagi Daisen said: "I've been in a relationship for years but we've never got round to actually getting married.
"So I decided to do this for myself and it was amazing fun.
The 43-year-old added: "I always wanted to wear a wedding dress and to be pampered like this and now I have been. It was great."
Although the wedding night does not include the made model used for the photo shoot, women usually invite their boyfriends to join them in the honeymoon suite after their fake ceremony is over.



World's 'most complicated' Patek Philippe gold watch sells for record $24.4 million

The Henry Graves 'Supercomplication' timepiece sold for $24 million at Sotheby's 2014 Important Watches sale, breaking its own record for a watch sold at auction.

The most "complicated" handmade watch in the world has been sold at auction for an historic $24.4 million.

The Henry Graves Supercomplication timepiece, made by the luxury watchmaker Patek Philippe in 1933 for the prominent banker Henry Graves, was sold at Sotheby's in Switzerland.

The sale smashed the world record for the most expensive watch ever sold at auction, which was previously held by the same watch. In 1999, it was sold to Sheikh Saud Bin Mohammed Bin Ali Al-Thani of the Qatari royal family, for $11 million.
The watch was released in 2014 to coincide with the 175th anniversary of the Swiss watch maker. The sale has benefited from the boom in Patek Phillippe auction values over the last 15 years.
The term "complication" is a technical one, and refers to any aspect of a watch that offers a function that is not simply telling the time.

The timepiece -- which has been called "the most important watch in the world," "one of the wonders of the world," and "the collector's holy grail" -- boasts 24 such complications.
These include grande and petite sonnerie (chimes), which emulate the bells of Westminster; a record of the phases and age of the moon; sunrise and sunset indications; a "perpetual calendar" that makes automatic adjustments for month and year; and a celestial map of the New York sky.

The watch was made by Patek Philippe for Henry Graves, a prominent banker, in 1933.
The celestial map alone is a remarkable feat of engineering. It charts the precise spacing and density of the stars, and rotates at the same pace as the sky as it would have appeared from its owner's Fifth Avenue apartment.

The watch is comprised of 900 individual parts, and, according to Sotheby's, is the most advanced timepiece ever made without the assistance of computers. It was last wound in 1969, yet remains in perfect working order.

The Supercomplication was made as the result of a friendly competition between Graves, a member of a well-known banking family, and James Ward Packard, the luxury automobile manufacturer, to see who could produce the most impressive timepiece.


One of the Supercomplication's more obscure features is a sidereal time dial, which tracks the Earth's rate of rotation in relation to fixed stars. A "sidereal day", which is used by astronomers, lasts for 23 hours, 46 minutes and 4.1 seconds. It is unclear whether Graves had any use for the functionality.
"It's amazing that they did all that without computers," says Larry Pattinelli, the president of Patek Phillippe. "You are talking about one of the most collectible pieces ever put up for auction, if not the most collectible."

The Supercomplication took Patek Phillipe eight years to produce, from its commission in 1925 to delivery in 1933. The identity of the new buyer is unknown.
