Presence of Gravitational waves confirmed

hi
 This is some unusal post.
 Today's breaking news is , Albert Einstein was correct in predicting that, gravity has its own waves. and it is all a matter os space time fabric , which gives gravity to a body

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/12150944/Gravitational-waves-Einstein-was-right-and-this-announcement-is-the-scientific-highlight-of-the-decade.html

 Does that means , the force and pull equations (Newtonian ) are not useful in calulating gravitational pull ?

  Any scholar in the field of relativity ( both special and General ) can please comment on the issue?

Amit Sir,

Detectable gravity waves will be created by very big star or 2 blackholes collision only .
Those blackholes were tens of times greater than our sun. Smaller collisions will be
very difficult to detect as pull and force will be very negligible ( on the space in
our universe ) .
