On February 14, Zlatan Ibrahimović scored a goal against Caen and then proceeded to take off his shirt.

The move may have gotten him a yellow card, but it also got him a lot of attention for a much bigger issue: world hunger.

The Paris Saint-Germain striker had 50 names temporarily tattooed on his torso of starving children around the world to help promote The World Food Programme’s initiative “805 Million Names.”

“If I could, I would write all the names of people suffering from hunger on my body. But they are 805 million. It is a disaster,” he says.

The WFP is part of the United Nations, and the organization reaches more than 80 million people with food assistance in 75 countries each year.

“I had a dream that someone could convey this message in a simple way. We thought of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is always asked for his autograph,” said Marina Catena, director of the WFP in France. “So why shouldn’t it be Zlatan who has the autographs on his body this time? We’re proud that he accepted to convey this message.”

As a result of his charitable stunt, Ibrahimović is suspended and will not be playing in their game against Monaco on March 1.

One grandmother apparently gave ISIS quite an earful.

In the video above which surfaced last week, an old woman in Syria gets right up in the face of some ISIS militants (according to the uploader) telling them that what they are doing is wrong.

“Oh you devils, turn back to God,” she says, “It’s all forbidden. I swear nothing what you have done was in the way of God.”

She argues against the unnecessary slaughter of innocents and warns them that their group is cursed.

“Neither of you will win,” she says. “Nor will anybody, you only will keep killing each other like donkeys.”

The men laugh and make fun of her, telling her to go away.

There isn’t much more information on the origins of this video, and the BBC wonders if the men are in fact ISIS as the uploader claims them to be. Some commenters are pointing out that if it really were ISIS, they would have killed the woman on the spot.

Over the weekend, U.S. led forced conducted a number of air strikes against ISIS targets in both Syria and Iraq.
