Gangnam Style video breaks YouTube record with over 2billion views

Gangnam Style hit music video by South Korean singer, PSY, has exceeded YouTube's view limit, prompting YouTube to upgrade its counter.

The video which was released in 2012, was announced to be its most watched ever and has been viewed more than 2,147,483,647 times. YouTube has now
changed the maximum view limit to 9,223,372,036,854,775,808, or more than nine quintillion.

On December 1, YouTube posted a statement saying: "We never thought a video would be watched in numbers greater than a 32-bit integer... but that was before we met Psy." ‎

Meanwhile, how do you say 9,223,372,036,854,775,808? That's over a quadrillion, over a trillion, and over a billion. So how do you say it?

South African Woman Sues Hospital N93m after She Gave Birth to Down's Syndrome Baby

A South African woman is going to the country's constitutional court to claim thousands of pounds in damages after a medical centre failed to diagnose her son with Down's syndrome.

The woman, identified only as Ms H. to protect the identity of her child, is arguing her son represents a "wrongful life," as she would have aborted the foetus if she had been told by the clinic it was at a high risk of having Down's syndrome. She is seeking £368,742 (N93million) in damages on behalf of her child, who has severe Down's syndrome and needs constant care, according to court documents.

News of the South African case comes days after Richard Dawkins, a high-profile philosopher, apologised after tweeting that if a woman had a foetus with Down's syndrome she should: "Abort it and try again. It would be immoral to bring it into the world if you have the choice."

Earlier this month, there was also an uproar after Australian parents were accused of abandoning their male baby with Down's syndrome born through a surrogate mother in Thailand.
