There are many things that we don’t want to do. None of us would be happy if we were forced to. But sometimes we are forced to do things against our wills. Sometimes we are forced to do things in the worst way and it is just too frustrating. It is not fun. Whatever you do, whether it is something good or bad, it will be done to you. You will never know what will happen to you. You will never know what will happen. But what if it is a bad thing.
What do you do when you photograph the most amazing person and he breaks your heart? You take time to write an article about him? It’s not like it’s hard, is it? Well, I’m here to tell you it is, but I’m also here to share with you my experience during his farewell match. I had the privilege to stand next to the best player in the world. I had the opportunity to witness his greatness, yet, it was a bitter-sweet moment. The tears that flowed from my eyes after the match were not only tears of sadness, but also tears of joy. Not because I was sad, but because it was a moment of truth, after a year of sadness

The picture of a photographer weeping during Messi’s goodbye to Barcelona is a hoax.
False allegation: Images of a photojournalist weeping were circulated on social media with the assertion that the incident occurred last Sunday, August 8, during Lionel Messi’s farewell news conference. When the Argentinian star announced his departure from Barcelona after 21 years with the club, he wept.
- One of the pictures was uploaded on the official Facebook page of the AFC Asian Cup on January 24, 2019, according to a reverse image search.
- The pictures show Iraqi photojournalist Mohammed Al-Azzawi weeping after his nation was eliminated from the tournament in the round of 16 by Qatar.
- In a February 2019 interview with Iraqi station Al-Iraqiya, Al-Azzawi claimed he got upset when he realized Iraq had lost the game.
We’re all photographers, and we’re all Lionel Messi LLORANDO. We never imagined Lionel Messi would leave Barcelona or retire with the culé jersey, but everything comes to an end, and the only certainty in life is death. NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO LIO, THANK YOU. pic.twitter.com/cBlnhQBVDV

A comparison of Neil Armstrong’s space suit and a lunar footprint does not show that the moon landing was staged.
False claim: Facebook posts link a picture of astronaut Neil Armstrong’s spacesuit from the 1969 Apollo 11 mission to a photo of a footprint left on the moon’s surface during the trip.
The postings say that since the sole of the boot and the footprint do not match, the moon landing was a hoax.
- The first picture, taken by astronomer Phil Plait and published in Slate on July 20, 2015, shows Neil Armstrong’s original suit from the Apollo 11 flight. The artifact is now in the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum’s collection.
- The Apollo 11 astronauts’ original boots, on the other hand, were left on the Lunar to compensate for the extra weight carried back by gathering moon rocks.
- The boots that make up Neil Armstrong’s suit at The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum, therefore, are not the same ones that had been with the astronaut on the Moon.
- The bottoms of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s boots matched the imprints on the lunar surface, according to NASA photos from the Apollo 11 mission.
Bill Clinton made no apologies for the experiments on “Stranger Things.”
False claim: According to a video uploaded on TikTok, former President Bill Clinton purportedly apologized for the so-called Montauk Project, a program of pseudo-scientific research allegedly carried out by the US government, in a speech during his time in office.
On Eunomia, you may discuss this news.
Between the 1940s through the 1980s, there was a government that inspired the Netflix series “Stranger Things.”
- Despite what the video says, Clinton’s speech is part of a historic formal apology for the Tuskegee experiment, a government-sponsored study of syphilis in Black men that is now widely seen as a horrific example of unethical and racist scientific research.
- The Montauk Project is a well-known conspiracy theory alleging that the United States government performed a series of covert scientific tests at Montauk, New York.
- The concept was originally titled “Montauk” when Netflix initially commissioned what would become the series “Stranger Things” in 2015.
Israel has not determined that individuals who have been exposed to COVID-19 have more immunity than those who have been vaccinated.
False claim: A Facebook post posted an article stating that being infected with the new Coronavirus protects seven times better than taking the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, according to Israeli health authorities.
“People who have gained immunity against the novel coronavirus via spontaneous infection are less likely to be infected in future outbreaks than those who have obtained immunity through vaccination,” says the caption of some of the postings.
- The Israeli Ministry of Health stated in a statement to the Brazilian fact-checking agency Projeto Comprova that the statistics available in the nation thus far do not enable to confirm or refute the assertion that antibodies produced by natural infection are stronger than those produced by vaccines.
- The data provided was acquired via epidemiological surveillance performed by the Israeli health authorities, not scientific study, as the piece posted on social media implies.
- The Israeli Ministry of Health stated that its data “clearly” show that the vaccine protects against severe COVID-19 infections, and that the recent increase in the number of infections recorded in the country was due to a decrease in the level of protection of people vaccinated in January and February, prompting the agency to recommend a third dose to people over 60.
The Olympic winner was not referred to as a “national disgrace” in a Japanese publication.
False claim: Hong Kong social media users have posted a picture of what seems to be the front page of the Japanese daily Yukan Fuji, which has a headline that calls Japanese gymnast and Olympic champion Daiki Hashimoto a “national disgrace.” “Speechless (Even a Japanese tabloid stated winning a gold medal like this is a national shame),” several of the posts’ captions read.
- The front page posted on social media was doctored from a July 29 edition of Yukan Fuji, according to a reverse image search.
- Instead of criticizing Hashimoto, the original title mentions Jun Mizutani and Mima Ito, a Japanese mixed doubles team who beat China to win Japan’s first ever Olympic table tennis gold medal.
- Hashimoto won the gold medal in the individual men’s all-around event at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics on July 28, defeating China’s Xiao Ruoteng.
It is untrue that hundreds of Chinese nationals have been detained in the Democratic Republic of Congo for kidnapping children.
False claim: According to Facebook posts, 73 Chinese nationals have been detained in Katanga, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s southeast, on charges of kidnapping children and cannibalism.
The tweets are followed by a picture of a dozen Asian employees cowering in a hallway in their work uniforms. A black guy seems to be standing watch in the backdrop, near to a door.
- According to AFP, the Chinese embassy in the Democratic Republic of Congo called the allegation on social media “Fake News.”
- The picture posted on social media depicts business workers during an inquiry by the Lualaba Public Prosecutor’s Office, according to a news release issued on August 2, 2021 by the Musonoi Mining Company (Commus), which operates in Lualaba province and is owned by China’s Zijin Mining. The business, on the other hand, did not disclose the nature of the inquiry.
- The inquiry is related to an allegation that Commus employed public security officers to forcibly remove unlicensed miners from its properties, according to Deutsche Welle.
- The identical uniforms shown in the social media picture may also be seen in other images of Commus workers on the internet, including one uploaded on the Lualaba government website in 2018 during a visit by the province governor to the business.
