The nude calendar of the University of Warwick female rowing club was tagged as pornographic by Facebook. The social media giant Facebook, have completely removed their Facebook page which shows their black-and-white nude photos. Facebook said that the page contained "explicitly sexual content."
The good news is they are now BACK! Facebook reinstated their Warwick Rowing's Women's Naked Calendar account and is now online. The new calender is more daring than before and it featured 12 members of the girls rowing club. There are pictured frolicking naked in the water on the River Avon in Barford, Warks.
Sophie Bell, 20 who is a 3rd year history and politics student is one of the organizer of the 2015 calendar said:
"We were all disappointed when the page was removed because we are students so social media is one of the main ways we market and advertise the calendar. It really hurt us when it was branded as pornographic because that is exactly the opposite of what we want to do. We are all strong-minded women and our first thought is to make sure the shots are tastefully done so it makes a calendar we can all be proud of."
"We have raised more than £3,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support and thought we might struggle to sell as many of the 2015 calendars without Facebook."
"Thankfully, due to the support of our loyal fans, they saw sense and put the page back up again and the girls are really looking forward to selling as many as we can to our fans all over the world."

Cung Le tested positive for banned substance HGH. Cung Le said that the Instagram photo of him showing a more muscular physique was just a result of luck. The timing was just right and the lighting was good which is why he appears to be more muscular. However, based on a test result it appears that muscle growth was not luck but with the help of Human Growth Hormone. UFC made a statement on their website last Tuesday September 30 that Le tested positive for HGH after the August 23 loss to Michael Bisping that was held in Macau, china. Le was knocked out in the 4th round.
Michael Bisping saw the Instagram photo and requested UFC to test both blood and urine for that fight. UFC said that Cung Le will be suspended for 9 months, and he will need to pass a drug test before he can fight again in the UFC.

Boxer Manny Pacquiao issue a challenge to Floyd Mayweather Jr yet again Thursday, September 18, 2014 challenging the recent winner of the Mayweather-Maidana 2 to fight him instead of setting impossible terms that can't be agreed upon.
Pacquiao during the interview said: "He's all talk. Until now he has not yet agreed to fight me. Instead of blabbing, he should face me atop the ring."
"I'm tired of his alibis. If he really wants to fight me, he knows how to reach me. We can fight anytime, anywhere. To me, Maidana won that fight. Mayweather's face and lips were swelling compared to Maidana's unblemished face."
Pacquiao is now 35 and have won world titles in 8th separate weight divisions. He is now preparing to defend his World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight title against another undefeated American, Chris Algieri, that will be held in Macau China this November.
Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum said that Floyd Mayweather is now losing his fan base because of his boring fights. During an interview with the South China Morning Post he said,"His PPV numbers have been going down considerably. For example his numbers from the Maidana fight were considerably less than the first fight and less than Pacquiao did when he fought Bradley. What that tells us is that people are getting disgusted with Mayweather and his base is eroding, particularly his urban base in the United States because he’s fighting with very popular rap stars, the urban population is not happy with a lot that goes on in his personal life.”
