67-year-old McAfee Feels 10 Years Older After A Week-long Detention, Misses 20-year-old Girlfriend

Anti-virus software founder John McAfee arrived in the US on Wednesday night after being deported from Guatemala, where he had sought to evade police questioning in the killing of a man in neighbouring Belize.

The American Airlines commercial jet carrying McAfee landed in Miami shortly before 7pm, said Miami International Airport spokesman Greg Chin.

A short time later, a posting on McAfee’s website announced that he was at a hotel in Miami’s upscale South Beach neighbourhood. He said he arrived by taxi after a group of customs or immigration agents, he didn’t know which, escorted him to an airport taxi stand. McAfee has frequently communicated through the website.

“I have no phone, no money, no contact information,” the post said. Reached by telephone at the hotel, the 67-year-old McAfee told an AP reporter that he couldn’t talk because he was waiting for a call from his girlfriend, 20-year-old Belizean Samantha Vanegas.

Vanegas had accompanied him when he was on the run, but did not go with him to the US.

On a blog he has been posting for the past two weeks, McAfee wrote,
“I have been forcibly separated from Sam,” but claimed she would be coming to the United States later.

McAfee sat in a coach-class seat on the flight, which took off during the afternoon from Guatemala City, according to the airline.
Other passengers on the flight told The Associated Press that McAfee was escorted off the aircraft before others were allowed to disembark.

“They asked us to please stay seated and said, ‘Mr John McAfee, come to the front,’ and he did,” said Maria Claridge, a 36-year-old photographer from Fort Lauderdale. “He walked very peacefully, chin up. He didn’t seem stressed.”

Claridge said she did not see what happened to McAfee after he left the aircraft. She said he was well dressed, in a black suit and white shirt, appeared to be travelling alone and that she didn’t realise who he was until another passenger told her.

“I thought he was either a diplomat or a politician,” she said. “It just seemed eerie to be travelling on an airplane with someone who was in trouble.”

An FBI spokesman in Miami, James Marshall, told the AP in an email that the agency is not involved with McAfee’s return to the US.
Authorities from US Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the US Marshals office and the US attorney’s office did not immediately respond to questions about whether McAfee would be questioned or detained in the US They said there was no active arrest warrant for McAfee that would justify taking him into custody.

Bystanders in Guatemala City stopped to stare at the passing police convoy that escorted McAfee to the Central American country’s international airport. People at the airport crowded around the immigration truck carrying McAfee, straining to take pictures of him with their mobile phones.

“I’m free. I’m going to America,” McAfee said before boarding the plane.

McAfee was detained last week for immigration violations after he sneaked into Guatemala. He suggested his week-long detention there had taken its toll on him.

“All I can tell you is, I’m 10 years older, and I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m just going to Miami,” he said.

The British-born McAfee said Sunday that he wanted to return to the United States and “settle down to whatever normal life” he can. “I simply would like to live comfortably day by day, fish, swim, enjoy my declining years.”

He later said that he also would be happy to go to England, noting, “I have dual citizenship.”

McAfee’s expulsion from Guatemala marked the last chapter in a strange, monthlong odyssey to avoid police questioning about the November killing of American expatriate Gregory Viant Faull, who lived a couple of houses down from McAfee’s compound on Ambergris Caye, off Belize’s Caribbean coast.

McAfee has acknowledged that his dogs were bothersome and that Faull had complained about them days before some of the dogs were poisoned, but denies killing Faull.

He was in hiding in Belize for weeks after police pronounced him a person of interest in the killing. Belizean authorities have urged him to come in for questioning, but have not lodged any formal charges against him. McAfee has said he feared he would be killed if he turned himself in to Belizean authorities.

Belize’s prime minister, Dean Barrow, has expressed doubts about McAfee’s mental state, saying: “I don’t want to be unkind to the gentleman, but I believe he is extremely paranoid, even bonkers.”
McAfee is an acknowledged practical joker who has dabbled in yoga, ultra-light aircraft and the production of herbal medications. He has led an eccentric life since he sold his stake in the software company named after him in the early 1990s and moved to Belize about three years ago to lower his taxes.

He told The New York Times in 2009 that he had lost all but $4 million of his $100 million fortune in the US financial crisis. However, a story on the Gizmodo website quoted him as describing that claim as “not very accurate at all.” [GN]

Being overweight or obese can be detrimental to your health. It is not advisable to have excess fat in the abdominal cavity because it can lead to some health issues. Getting your dream body will not be easy and you need to make some sacrifices to your diet. You will also need to turn a blind eye to some fatty foods.

If you’re ready to get rid of the belly fat, then stay put as Information Nigeria brings you some important tips that will help.

1. Avoid sugar and carbonated drinks

Did you know that consuming sugary substances like coke, fanta can lead to weight gain and a number of health problems like high blood pressure?. This is due to the high fructose content found in added sugars. Taking sugar-filled drinks may slow your metabolism and this in turn can make it harder for your body to burn fat. Fructose can only be metabolized by your liver. When you consume too much, you push your liver to its limit and it becomes overloaded, then it turns the fructose into fat and it ends up getting stored in your belly. To avoid putting yourself from risk, you should cut back on foods and drinks that contain huge amounts of sugar.

 

2. You also have to forgo junk foods like meat pie, cakes, rolls, candies, burgers, ice cream and cookies. You also need to do away with heavy foods like eba, akpu, pounded yam, rice among others. Switch up your eating habits and opt for a more balanced-diet if you want to burn your belly fat. Avoid consuming refined carbs like bread, pizza, potation chips etc. You should also stay away from processed and heavy foods because they contribute to stubborn belly fat. You should choose to eat proteinous foods like fish, eggs, and milk. starch contains fat, sugar and salt. They help a person feel fuller so you don’t end up looking for something to munch on after eating. It basically keeps hunger at bay.

3. Eat the right amount of fruits, vegetables, fibrous foods and whole grains – You can add vegetables, fruits and whole grains to your weight loss diet. They provide essential vitamins, minerals, fiber and other substances that are good for your body.

4. Try to incorporate exercise into your daily or weekly routine – Exercise helps to speed up your metabolism and helps you shed weight. The bitter truth is that wearing just waist trainers and staying put in one position will not make you lose that stubborn belly fat. You should hit the gym.

5 Reduce alcohol intake – Excess intake of alcohol also leads to a host of health problems especially the build-up of fat in the belly area. Have you ever noticed that those who drink alcohol, especially men, often develop ‘pot-bellies’. Alcoholic drinks like beer provide your body with calories and very little nutrients. It can also increase your appetite. Replace the alcoholic drinks with water or alternate with low calorie, non-alcoholic beverages. Too much alcohol can cause liver damage and other serious health problems.

6. Try out apple cider vinegar – Apple cider vinegar is made in a two-step fermentation process. It is obtained from apples that have been crushed, distilled and fermented. Acetic acid is the main active component of apple cider vinegar. It is safe for consumption in small quantities and can be taken as a supplement. Do not also consume it straight from the bottle or in its pure form. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons to water before you drink. You can also add honey or lemon. It is best to drink it before your meals.
