Messi makes new record as Barça beats Real Madrid 3-2 in LaLiga

2017-04-23T21:31:05Z

Acagastya: link, lower case t {{date|April 25, 2017}} {{Football}} On Sunday, in [[Spain|Spanish]] {{w|LaLiga}}'s {{w|El Clásico}} clash, [[FC Barcelona]] defeated [[Real Madrid]] 3–2, with [[Lionel Messi]] scoring two goals at the Santiago Bernabéu stadium. Messi scored his 500th goal in the [[Catalonia]]n colours, in the ending moments of the game, becoming the top scorer of the El Clásico in the league with sixteen goals surpassing {{w|Alfredo Di Stéfano}}'s fourteen. Messi was left on the ground, bleeding after {{w|Marcelo (footballer, born 1988)|Marcelo}}'s elbow hit his face in a clash. The [[Argentina|Argentine]] was taken off-pitch, and later continued the game with a tissue paper in his mouth to stop bleeding. Just before the thirty minute mark, ''Los Blancos'' captain {{w|Sergio Ramos}} hit the woodwork from Marcelo's freekick, but the deflection was converted into a 1–0 lead by {{w|Casemiro}}. Five minutes later, Messi levelled for Barcelona dribbling against two Madrid defenders from [[Ivan Rakitić|Rakitić]]'s assist. Messi had not scored in the last six Clásicos. In the 39th minute, [[Wales|Welsh]] forward [[Gareth Bale]], who became the third [[United Kingdom|Briton]] to reach 100 appearances landmark in La Liga, was substituted following an injury. {{w|Marco Asensio}} replaced the Briton. Bale was out for the last two matches due to injury. [[David Beckham]] and {{w|Gary Lineker}}, former forwards of Madrid and Barcelona respectively, previously made over 100 appearances in La Liga. At half time, Madrid had six attempts on target, as compared to Barça's one. Madrid striker {{w|Karim Benzema}} missed a chance to score in the 52nd minute when Barcelona's shot-stopper {{w|Marc-André ter Stegen}} played a goal kick to Benzema. A minute later, ter Stegen stopped Benzema's six yard header from finding the nets. Ronaldo missed a chance to put Madrid in front in the 67th minute from Asensio's assist. Minutes later, Casemiro was subbed off for {{w|Mateo Kovačić}}. Barcelona brought on {{w|André Gomes}} for {{w|Paco Alcácer}}. Casemiro was booked early in the match for bringing down Messi. He later fouled the Argentine in the 45th minute, but got away without receiving a second yellow. Minutes later [[Toni Kroos]] lost mark of Rakitić as the [[Croatia|Croatian]] faked a shot and scored a 20-yard goal from his left foot, putting the ''Blaugrana'' in the lead. In the 77th minute, Ramos was shown a straight red card for bringing down Messi. Barça defender {{w|Gerard Piqué}} missed a chance to make it 3–1 from Gomes' pass. {{w|James Rodríguez}} was brought on for Benzema, and four minutes later, the [[Colombia]]n scored from Marcelo's assist. With only two minutes added for the injury time, {{w|Sergi Roberto}}'s run from Barcelona's half was later converted to the match winning goal by Messi from {{w|Jordi Alba}}'s assist scoring his 23rd goal in El Clásico. ter Stegen made twelve saves in the entire match, the most in the league since 2003–2004. Messi was booked for removing his jersey celebrating his 500th goal for Barcelona. He leads the race for the Spanish Golden Boot — {{w|Pichichi Trophy}} — which he last won in 2013. After the match, Real Madrid manager {{w|Zinedine Zidane}} said, {{translated quote|es|Spanish language|No podemos estar contentos. Hicimos mucho, durante todo el partido.

Classic {{w|Volkswagen|Volkswagens}} have been arriving in the {{w|San Francisco Bay Area}} over the last several days from many hundreds of miles around in preparations for what many attendees say is the most loved event for air-cooled Volkswagens in {{w|Northern California}}. Today, the {{w|Golden Gate Chapter}} of the {{w|Vintage Volkswagen Club of America}} will sponsor its 33rd consecutive annual Spring Meet at historic {{w|Kelley Park}}, which they advertise as a wonderful location for a gathering. The location is now used by the city as a place to display - and keep for posterity - a museum of buildings salvaged from various developments in the {{w|San Jose}} area in an attempt to keep some of its history, and San Jose markets it as a great setting for a day out with family and friends and do a little sightseeing of the region's architectural history.

It was reported via email to its members that a contingent of Bus fans from {{w|Idaho}} arrived at a gathering of Karmann Ghia enthusiasts sponsored by the Karmann Ghia Club of North America] in nearby {{w|Oakland}} on Thursday evening as a kick-off to the weekend's events, which include a Type II gathering known as "The Red Barn" on Saturday AM, and many private parties held by various members of the VW community.

While the City reports that the facility was damaged during recent storms and has been closed to the public for repairs, it assures VW fans that Kelley Park will be open for the Spring Meet.

Who Shot Down MH17?

2017-04-21T19:57:47Z

Pi zero: Undo revision 4308680 by Burcu8 (talk) - review concerns were not addressed; don't resubmit without addressing review concerns, it's considered disruptive


{{tasks|news|mos|re-review}}{{date|April 21, 2017}}

{{w|Malaysian Airlines}} flight {{w|Malaysian Airlines flight MH17|MH17}} was shot down over [[Ukraine]], killing all '''298''' passengers and crew. While the official inquiries have pointed the finger of blame at separatist fighters and their Russian backers, a host of different theories claim the Ukrainian government, and even the CIA, were to blame.

{{w|'''Billy Six'''}}, a freelance journalist from [[Berlin]], spent nine months in '''Ukraine''' and interviewed more than 100 people in the rebel-controlled area around the crash site. Seven people told him they saw a fighter jet on the day MH17 crashed, and one said he saw a missile being launched from a plane. [http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-35706048 Six], thinks two fighter jets shot down MH17 - one firing its cannon, the other firing a missile.

In a world where the information war fought online can be just as important as battles on the ground, BBC analyses the role of the Kremlin in the search for the truth about who shot down MH17 http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0791ns4.

28-year-old suspect charged for attacking Borussia Dortmund's team bus

2017-04-21T14:44:33Z

Pi zero: Rejected the last text change (by 74.104.137.99) and restored revision 4309196 by Pi zero {{date|April 22, 2017}} {{Crime and law}} A 28-year-old suspect, Sergej W, was arrested by [[Germany|German]] police near {{w|Tübingen}} yesterday for allegedly attacking the German [[football (soccer)|football]] club [[Borussia Dortmund]]'s team bus, injuring two people last week prior to the [[UEFA Champions League]] quarter-finals, the German federal prosecution said. The suspect, who holds a dual citizenship of Germany and [[Russia]], was allegedly trying to bring down Borussia Dortmund's share value in the stock market. Sergej W bought 15000 {{w|put options|puts}} for stock worth [[Euro|€]]78000 ({{w|pound sterling|£}}65300) on April 11 — the day Borussia Dortmund's bus was attacked. A put guarantees that a share holder can sell their stock, no later than a predetermined point in time, at a predetermined price even if the market price of the stock has dropped. The suspect booked a room in the hotel L'Arriveé from April 9 to 13, and then from April 16 to 20 — the time when Champion League's first and second leg of the quarterfinals were to be played. Dortmund's team commonly stays at L'Arriveé when playing home matches. Borussia Dortmund is the only German club whose shares are publicly traded on the stock market. The incident resulted in two casualties. [[Spain|Spanish]] defender {{w|Marc Bartra}} and a police official were injured, and the stocks fell slightly. The prosecutor said if the explosions had caused serious injured or death of any players, the suspect might have made a huge profit. The suspect is charged for attempted murder and causing serious physical injury. On April 11, Borussia Dortmund were to play {{W|AS Monaco}} at the {{W|Signal Iduna Park}}. The match was rescheduled due the attack for April 12. On the latter day, a 25-year-old [[Iraq|Iraqi]] migrant was detained. A number of letters claiming responsibility were found near the site of explosion, about six miles from the stadium. Those letters reportedly hinted the explosions were authorised under the [[Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant]], but were deemed fake after careful analysis. {{haveyoursay}} == Related news == *{{wikinews|Borussia Dortmund's team bus hit with explosives before Champions League match, Marc Bartra injured|April 12, 2017}} == Sources == *{{source|url=https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/apr/21/dortmund-bus-attack-suspect-arrested-as-police-allege-share-dealing-plot |title=Dortmund attack: man arrested on suspicion of share-dealing plot |author=Philip Oltermann |pub=The Guardian |date=April 21, 2017 }} *{{source|url=http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-39664212 |title=Borussia Dortmund bombs: 'Speculator' charged with bus attack |author= |pub=BBC News Online |date=April 21, 2017 }} *{{source|url=http://www.dw.com/en/new-message-claims-responsibility-for-dortmund-blast/a-38433218 |title=New message claims responsibility for Dortmund blast |author=Darko Janjevic |pub=Deutsche Welle |date=April 15, 2017 }} *{{source|url=https://www.thelocal.de/20170412/police-hunt-dortmund-bus-bomber-after-letter-found-at-blast-site |title=Islamist detained after attack against Dortmund team bus |author={{w|Deutsche Presse-Agentur|DPA}}, [[Agence France-Presse|AFP]] |pub=The Local |date=April 12, 2017 }} == External link == *{{source|url=http://www.generalbundesanwalt.de/de/showpress.php?newsid=695 |title=Der Generalbundesanwalt beim Bundesgerichtshof: Pressemitteilung |lang=de |author= |pub=General Bundesanwalt |date=April 15, 2017 }} {{Publish}} [[CAT:Germany]] [[CAT:Borussia Dortmund]] [[CAT:Crime and law]][...]



U.S. officials disclose Russian think tank plans outlining interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election

Pi zero: Protected "U.S. officials disclose Russian think tank plans outlining interference in 2016 U.S. presidential election": precaution ([Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


{{Russia}}
{{date|April 23, 2017}}

Seven current and former [[United States|U.S.]] government officials told ''[[Reuters]]'' a [[Russia|Russian]] think tank, reporting to [[Vladimir Putin]] and run by former {{w|KGB}} agents , developed a plan to interfere with last year's [[2016 United States presidential election|U.S. presidential election]] and ensure victory for now-President [[Donald Trump]], Reuters reported on Thursday.

According to the anonymous officials, the two documents were prepared by the {{w|Russian Institute for Strategic Studies}}, whose directors are appointed by [[Vladimir Putin]], in June and October respectively. The first recommended using {{w|social media}}-based propaganda to manipulate U.S. voters to elect someone friendly to Russia. The second recommended discrediting what it projected as [[Hillary Clinton]]'s probable victory by creating rumors of voter fraud. U.S. intelligence did not discover these documents until after the election.

"I don't think it's a big surprise," said former [[CIA]] officer John Sipher in an interview with ''{{w|PBS}}''. "President Putin hardly needed this group to tell him by June of 2016 that he should start trying to influence the election or to, you know, find a candidate that was pro-Russian, when we already by that time, all of us sort of knew that." Sipher went on to say Russia has tried to influence [[Germany|German]] and [[Bulgaria]]n elections.

Neither of the documents covered the break-in to the [[Democratic Party (United States)|Democratic National Committee]] by Russian hackers last fall. Reuter's anonymous sources told them the {{wikt|Kremlin}} organized the hack separately.

US government investigations into Trump team complicity in Russian tampering have thus far not produced any evidence Trump's associates were deliberately complicit in tampering.

Georgia congressional seat up for grabs in surprise runoff election

2017-04-19T12:46:15Z

Darkfrog24: darn you, green underlining program {{United States}} {{date|April 20, 2017}} On Tuesday, with slightly over 48% of the vote, [[U.S. Democratic party|Democrat]] {{w|Jon Ossoff}} narrowly missed the simple majority that would have awarded him the seat in the [[U.S. House of Representatives]] for [[Georgia (U.S. state)|Georgia]]'s usually [[U.S. Republican party|Republican]] {{w|Georgia's 6th congressional district|sixth congressional district}}. Ossoff and Republican {{w|Karen Handel}} are now to participate in a {{w|runoff election}}, vote to be held June 20. The district, a suburb of {{w|Atlanta}}, was represented by then-Congressman {{w|Tom Price}} who left when President [[Donald Trump]] offered him the position of secretary of health. The election drew an unusual amount of media attention, some of it over Ossoff's fundraising in which he garnered over [[US$]]8 million for his efforts, campaigning opposite TV ads and other efforts from the several Republican candidates. The election drew several [[twitter|Tweets]] from President Trump, including one expressing confidence that Ossoff will lose: "Despite major outside money, FAKE media support and eleven Republican candidates, BIG 'R' win with runoff in Georgia. Glad to be of help!" Ossoff himself was more positive: "We may not know the outcome for sometime but let me tell you this, there is no doubt that this is already a victory for the ages[...] That no matter what the outcome is tonight — whether we take it all or whether we fight on — we have survived the odds. We have shattered expectations." Much of the media has treated intra-term elections like these as a referendum on Trump's presidency. Last week a similarly conservative district in [[Kansas]] went to a Republican but by a far narrower margin than had been expected. Many Ossoff supporters cited the new president's actions and policies among their reasons for supporting a candidate from the opposite party. Those who supported a Republican candidate tended to cite local issues when interviewed. "[G]etting the 24 seats we need to take back the House is suddenly a real possibility, GOP [Republican] {{w|gerrymandering|gerrymander}} or not," commented {{w|Daily Kos}} founder {{w|Markos Moulitsas}}. "It also potentially puts the [[US Senate|Senate]] in play, while certainly protecting our endangered red-state incumbents. All of this, and we're still in Trump's supposed '{{wikt|honeymoon}}' period." Handel, one of several Republican choices offered to voters on Tuesday, has served as Georgia's secretary of state and once sought the Republican nomination for senator. She received 19.8% of the vote. Ossoff is a former congressional staffer but a first-time candidate. {{haveyoursay}} == Sources == *{{source|url=https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/apr/18/georgia-special-election-jon-ossoff-republican-seat-congress |title=Georgia special election: Jon Ossoff eyes runoff after narrowly missing outright win |author=Ben Jacobs |pub=The Guardian |date=April 19, 2017 }} *{{source|url=http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/18/politics/georgia-house-6th-special-election-jon-ossoff/ |title=Ossoff falls just short in Georgia special election as GOP gets wakeup call |author=Eric Bradner |pub=CNN |date=April 19, 2017 }} {{Publish}} [[CAT:Politics and conflicts]] [[CAT:United States]] [[CAT: Georgia (U.S. state)]] [[CAT: US House of Representatives]] [[Category:North America]] [[Category:Republican Party (United States)]] [[Category:Democratic Party (United States)]] [[Category:US Congress]] [[Category:Elections]][...]

Under the {{w|Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011|Fixed-term Parliaments Act}}, members of Parliament must approve the snap election by a two-thirds vote in favor. The vote was held on Wednesday in the {{w|House of Commons (United Kingdom)|House of Commons}}, with the motion to hold an early election passing 522 to 13.

If her {{w|Conservative Party (UK)|Conservative Party}} follows pollsters' expectations, May, who became Prime Minister after the resignation of {{w|David Cameron}} in the aftermath of the Brexit vote, would expand her majority in the House of Commons. The opposition {{w|Labour Party (UK)|Labour}} party is behind in the polls, at half the support of the Conservatives in a recently released poll by {{w|YouGov}} on behalf of ''{{w|The Times}}''.

The move was a reversal from previous statements, as the Prime Minister said earlier that an early election would not take place.

CNN Poll shows Nigerians ‘still love’ Fanta, Sprite

Despite being in the eye of the storm lately over the controversy surrounding benzoate preservatives, favourite beverage brands, Fanta and Sprite, appear to still enjoy the confidence and trust of Nigerian consumers, according to a CNN Poll.

Conducted by CNNAfrica via its twitter handle @CNNAfrica, the poll had 61% of Nigerians saying they weren’t bothered by the court ruling and are still drinking Fanta and Sprite compared to 39% who would rather not for now. The poll which was open for a limit period had 1,108 respondents, 170 retweets, 36 likes and 42 replies.

Interestingly, the numbers are a sharp contrast to what critics and some media headlines are reporting, speculating that consumers are boycotting both drinks.



New research finds benefits in treating dispersion with hallucinogenic ayahuasca

2017-04-16T22:03:27Z

Tharikrish: c/e {{tasks|news|re-review}}{{date|April 17, 2017}} {{Health}} [[Image:Ayahuasca prep.JPG|left|thumb|Preparation of Ayahuasca{{image credit | Terpsichore}}]] [[w:Major depressive disorder | Depressive]] patients, resistant to [[w:Antidepressant | antidepressants]], could respond better to the psychedelic concoction [[w:Ayahuasca | ayahuasca]]. The results of a clinical trial conducted in [[Brazil]] was made available as an unpublished preprint article in January but is yet to be peer reviewed. The studies involved 14 people, who took a single dose of ayahuasca that indicated significant mood improvements after a week. Ayahuasca is a mind-altering drink widely used in South America for centuries for religious and healing purposes. About a third of the patients diagnosed with depressive disorder are considered resistant to any treatment. Previous studies have shown benefits of treating such patients with psychedelic substances such as ayahuasca, [[w:Ketamine | ketamine]] and [[w:Psilocybin | psilocybin]] that is found in some mushrooms. The results of the study, which included control of placebo effect, claim rapid antidepressant effects of ayahuasca. A single dose of the foul tasting, brown-coloured ayahuasca was administered to 14 patients and an equally nasty tasting placebo to 15 patients. After a week, 64 percent patients who took ayahuasca reported their mood shifting from severe to mild, whereas only 27 percent of the people who drank placebo claimed a similar relief. Ayahuasca drink is prepared from two plants, ''Psychotria viridis'' and ''Banisteriopsis caapi''. The former contains a strong mind-altering compound [[w:N,N-Dimethyltryptamine | dimethyltryptamine]] (DMT), while the later includes substances that stop DMT from being digested in the stomach, allowing it to get into the body. DMT is a potent stimulator of [[w:Serotonin | serotonin]] receptors in the brain, assumed by many researchers to contribute to feelings of well-being and happiness. {{QuoteLeft|The findings suggest a rapid antidepressant benefit for ayahuasca, at least for the short term, but we need studies that follow patients for longer periods to see whether these effects are sustained.|4=David Mischoulon, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston}} DMT is understood to liberate the constraints that the prefrontal cortex has over the primitive parts of the human brain. This relaxation of the functioning of the brain could lead to intense hallucinatory memories and emotions. “That lets us go to places in our psyche or internal landscape that we wouldn’t normally allow ourselves to go,” says Gerald Thomas, who researches addiction at the University of Victoria, [[British Columbia]]. Ayahuasca is reported to affect the consciousness for a time span of about six hours after intake and to moderately increase both heart rate and diastolic blood pressure. The psychedelic effects of ayahuasca include excitation of visual and hearing sensory activities, the mixing of stimulus due to light, sound, temperature, taste, pressure, and smell. The effects involve deep psychological contemplation leading to great elation, fear, or illumination. Preliminary research done earlier had suggested that ayahuasca can reduce dependence on addictive drugs. Other studies are underway to determine whether ayahuasca could help people who have [[w:Posttraumatic stress disorder | post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)]]. Of cautionary note is research that indicated the incidence of psychotic episodes associated with ayahuasca intake. Deaths have also been reported after recreational ayahuasca usage. “The findings suggest a rapid antidepressant benefit for ayahuasca, at least for the short term, bu[...]

Canada to legalise marijuana to 'make it more difficult for kids to access' it

2017-04-14T20:36:02Z

Acagastya: Undo revision 4309550 by 24.209.49.47 (talk) {{date|April 16, 2017}} {{Crime and law}} In order to put the {{w|cannabis}} drug (marijuana) out of reach of minors, the [[Canada|Canadian]] federal government announced a bill to legalise cannabis for the age group of eighteen and above, on Thursday. The bill would allow adults to possess cannabis publicly, previously a criminal offence. Canada's health minister {{w|Jane Philpott}} [[twitter|tweeted]], {{translated quote|fr|French language|Ajd nous avons déposé un nouveau projet de loi pour légaliser le cannabis, le réglementer de manière stricte et en restreindre l'accès. Notre objectif: garder le cannabis hors de la portée des jeunes, & les profits hors des mains des criminels.|Today we tabled new legislation to legalise, strictly regulate, and restrict access to cannabis. Our goal: keep it out of the hands of youth, and profits out of the hands of criminals.}} The Canadian government, via their official website, explained cannabis is available illegally, and their measures to stop it did not work. Criminal organisations are making money selling cannabis. Under-aged people can obtain the drug easily; they said, "it is easier for our kids to buy cannabis than cigarettes." The bill allows provinces and territories to set the age limit above eighteen. In order to prevent criminal gangs from making a profit, selling the drug needs a license permitting its sale. Adults can purchase the drug online from a licensed producer if a retail shop is not available in the province. Adults can carry up to 30 {{w|gram|g}} (slightly over an {{w|ounce}}) of cannabis and grow at most four cannabis plants at home, for personal use. The plants should be no taller than a {{w|metre}}, the bill proposed. Selling cannabis to minors would be a specific criminal offence. The legislation requires parliamentary approval and royal assent. If passed, the bill would be under effect by July 2018, the government said. Health and safety experts and law enforcement were consulted before proposing the legislation. Except for medical purposes, possession of the drug remains illegal until the bill is passed. Regardless of the status of the bill, import and export of the drug would be illegal. Previously when the government increased the taxes on cigarettes to discourage citizens from smoking, a black market for cigarettes developed. Along with legalising cannabis, the bill would also permit the police officials to use tools like oral fluid drug screeners to detect if drivers are under the influence of the drug. Zero tolerance against drivers under influence of drugs is proposed. The government would also implement a public awareness campaign on the perils of driving under the influence of drugs. The government still working on the restrictions. Lawmaker and former police chief Bill Blair said, "We do accept that more important work remains to be done." If the bill is passed, Canada would be the second country to legalise cannabis completely. {{w|Uruguay}} is the first. Some countries, such as [[Germany]], allow medical use of cannabis, but recreational use is prohibited. {{haveyoursay}} == Related news == *{{wikinews|Germany legalises medical use of cannabis|January 20,2017}} == Sources == *{{source |url=https://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2017/04/13/trudeau-leaves-grim-faced-ministers-to-expand-on-pot-laws-right-before-long-weekend-hbert.html |date=April 13, 2017 |pub=The Star |author=Chantal Hébert |title=Trudeau leaves grim-faced ministers to expand on pot laws — right before long weekend: Hébert }} *{{source|url=h[...]



US launches 'mother of all bombs' in caves used by the ISIL in Afghanistan

Pi zero: Not ready when reviewed: article needs improvement(s). Add article flag. (Using easy peer review {{tasks|news|re-review}} {{date|April 14, 2017}} The {{w|United States}} has launched the so-called "Mother of All Bombs" — the most powerful non-nuclear bomb in the US arsenal — over a complex of tunnels believed to be used as a refuge by the [[Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant]] (ISIL) in the {{w|Achin district}} of {{w|Nangarhar province}}, in the eastern part of [[Afghanistan]] yesterday. The attack was part of ongoing efforts to defeat the branch of the ISIL in Afghanistan. The launch of the {{w|global positioning system|GPS}}-guided weapon was reported Wednesday night from a {{w|Lockheed C-130 Hercules}}, and the attack was designed to reduce the risk of Afghan and US forces carrying out clean-up operations in the area at the same time causing the maximum damage to the facilities and the combatants of the ISIL in Afghanistan. {{w|The Pentagon}} has confirmed the use of the bomb and is evaluating the extent of the damage. White House spokesman Sean Spicer told the press conference that in the fight against the Islamic Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, "We must deny them operational space, which we did." For his part, US president {{w|Donald Trump}}, who publicly confirmed gave "full authorisation" to the army for the operation, called the launch of the bomb "successful". This event comes at a time when the United States changed its military strategy from the assumption of Trump to the bombing of a [[Syria]]n air base in retaliation for the chemical weapons incident in Syria that the United States attributed to the government of {{w|Bashar al-Asad}}, The mobilisation of warships to the {{w|Korean peninsula}} to intimidate [[North Korea]] in the face of a possible sixth nuclear test, and recent misdirected air strikes that accidentally killed civilians and Syrian rebels. The US military says that in conjunction with the Afghan army, precautions were taken to prevent any civilian casualties, although it is not known how many militants in the ISIL may have died. The GBU-43 / B Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB), which shares with its English nickname Mother of All Bombs, is a large conventional non-nuclear bomb developed by the US military for use in war of [[Iraq]], but had not been used in combat previously until now, having been used only in tests. MOAB contains eleven {{w|tonne|tons}} of explosives and operates similarly to the BLU-82s used during the [[Vietnam]] and Afghanistan wars, being an updated version of these, to sweep large areas and at the same time used as a psychological weapon. The bomb is launched from a Hercules type plane with a parachute, and during its fall it is guided by GPS to its target. Once there it detonates before touching the ground, causing a powerful shock wave more than 1.5 miles from the {{wikt|epicentre}}, sucking all the oxygen from the area and then blazing the air. {{haveyoursay}} == Sources == {{translated Wikinews|title=EE.UU. lanzó "la madre de todas las bombas" en cuevas usadas por el Estado Islámico en Afganistán|wiki=es}} *{{source |url=https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/13/world/asia/moab-mother-of-all-bombs-afghanistan.html |title=U.S. Drops ‘Mother of All Bombs’ on ISIS Caves in Afghanistan |author=Helene Cooper |pub=The New York Times |date=April 13, 2017 }} *{{source |url=https://www.rt.com/usa/384646-pentagon-afghanistan-bomb-drop/ |title=US drops largest non-nuclear bomb on Afghanistan, first time used in combat |author[...]



Google blocks home device from responding to Burger King commercial

2017-04-14T10:50:48Z

Pi zero: Reverted edit(s) by ClitheroeBot (talk) to last version by Iuio {{WikimediaMention}}{{date|April 14, 2017}} {{Internet}} On Wednesday afternoon at around 2:45 PM {{w|North American Eastern Daylight Time|US Eastern Time}} (1845 {{w|UTC}}), [[Google]] prevented its {{w|Google Home}} speaker from responding to prompts by a {{w|Burger King}} commercial advertising the chain's {{w|Whopper}} hamburger, after the spot went live on the {{w|internet}} at 12PM Eastern Time (1600 UTC). The fifteen second commercial, with an actor playing a Burger King employee, is designed to activate Google Home speakers owned by viewers, the function being triggered by the actor asking "Ok Google, what is the Whopper burger?". Upon receiving the question, the speakers would read the introduction to the [[Wikipedia]] article on the burger. According to a report by ''{{w|USA Today}}'', responding to the commercial's launch, Wikipedia users vandalized the article, with statements like "The 'Whopper' is the worst hamburger product sold by the international fast-food restaurant chain Burger King," or that it contains "rat and toenail clippings", all of which would be recited by the speaker. Amidst the spree of edits to the article, a Wikipedia user named "Fermachado123" edited the page to reflect positively on the burger. A report by ''{{w|The Washington Post}}'' noted similarities between the user's name and Fernando Machado, senior vice president for global brand management at Burger King. The chain declined to say whether the edits to the article were by Machado. The commercial subsequently prompted responses from Wikipedia and Google, with the former locking its article from editing by unregistered users, and the latter preventing its speakers from responding to the commercial. According to a report by ''{{w|The Verge}}'', Google may have used the sound clip of the actor's voice to disable the commercial's ability to activate the speakers, as other people were still able to get the devices to respond to inquiries about the burger. Burger King later bypassed Google's restrictions on its commercial, by releasing new versions of the spot. The chain revealed the new versions on ''{{w|The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon}}'' and ''{{w|Jimmy Kimmel Live}}'' on Wednesday night. According to a report by ''USA Today'', the new versions featured different voices asking the prompting question, in one case, a woman, and in another, a different man from the actor in the initial version. Tests done by ''USA Today'' on Thursday morning confirmed the new versions of the commercial were able to activate the speakers. Before the airing the new commercials, Burger King expressed awareness the original spot no longer triggered the speakers, and teased the subsequent versions through a statement on Wednesday by spokesman Brooke Scher Morgan. "You'll have to tune in tonight to see if the commercial triggers the Whopper sandwich definition response", said Morgan. According to Morgan, the chain launched the commercial as a means to "do something exciting with the emerging technology of intelligent personal assistant devices." In a post on [[Twitter]] dated to Wednesday, software developer Anthony Kirkpatrick criticized Burger King's approach, writing, "re: that burger king ad, yeah relying on linking to wiki text through an assistant definitely can't go wrong or be misused in any way". Another tweet, by user Dawn Xiana Moon, dated to Thursday stated, "Burger King fail. Hijacking devices isn't cool. I[...]



Russian gay rights organization reports homosexuals arrested, taken to prison camps in Chechnya

2017-04-11T14:18:28Z

Darkfrog24: Turns out Independent is reporting a speech from last week. Kicking back to development. {{develop}}{{LGBT}} {{date|April 25, 2017}} In a speech to the [[British Parliament]], minister of state for the [[United Kingdom|British]] Foreign Office {{w|Sir Alan Duncan}} stated he had been informed of plans within [[Chechnya]] to eliminate the former Soviet country's [[homosexual|LGBTQ]] community by the start of the [[Muslim]] holy season of [[Ramadan]] on May 26. According to representatives from the {{w|Russian LGBT Network}} and reports that appeared in the independent [[Russia|Russian]] newspaper ''Novaya Gazeta'' in early April, over 100 [[LGBT|homosexual]] men in the [[Chechnya|Chechen Republic]] have been rounded up and taken to prison camps, with at least three killed. {{QuoteLeft|Human rights groups report that these anti-gay campaigns and killings are orchestrated by the head of the Chechen republic.|source=Sir Alan Duncan, Minister of Parliament}} "Human rights groups report that these anti-gay campaigns and killings are orchestrated by the head of the Chechen republic, {{w|Ramzan Kadyrov}}," said Duncan. "He has carried out other violent campaigns in the past, and this time he is directing his efforts at the LGBT community. Sources have said that he wants the community eliminated by the start of Ramadan." Duncan went on to condemn the arrests as "utterly barbaric". Earlier this month, {{w|Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe}} director of human rights {{w|Michael Georg Link}} asked the [[Russia]]n government to investigate allegations of the arrest, torture and death of gay men in [[Chechnya]]. The [[United Nations]] high commissioner for human rights also issued a statement asking [[Russia]] "to put an end to the persecution of people perceived to be gay or bisexual ... who are living in a climate of fear fuelled by homophobic speeches by local authorities." Last Thursday, representatives from [[Vladimir Putin]] have backed the Chechen government's denial that persecution based on sexual orientation is taking place. The Network's Svetlana Zakharova told ''{{w|MailOnline}}'' and the ''[[BBC]]'' that some of the prisoners had escaped and reported that they had all been kept in the same room with between 30 and 40 other men, some of whom were beaten, given electrical shocks or even killed, with some released to their families for the purpose of [[honour killing]]. {{QuoteRight|If [homosexuals] existed in Chechnya, law enforcement would not have to worry about them since their own relatives would have sent them to where they could never return.|source=Alvi Karimov}} In a statement to the ''{{w|Interfax}}'' news agency, Alvi Karimov, spokesperson for the Chechen leader {{w|Ramzan Kadyrov}}, rejected the claims by denying the existence of homosexuals in Chechnya: "You cannot arrest or repress people who just don't exist in the republic[.] If such people existed in Chechnya, law enforcement would not have to worry about them since their own relatives would have sent them to where they could never return."

2/3 of Great Barrier Reef Now Bleached

{{date|April 11, 2017}}

Scientists with {{w|James Cook University}}'s ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies studying the {{W|Great Barrier Reef}} off the coast of {{w|Queensland}}, {{w|Australia}}, announced on Monday a second severe case of {{w|coral bleaching}} in just 12 months.

Aerial and underwater surveys of the reef system revealed massive stretches of coral under stress, indicated by loss of colour. The survey examined 1500 {{w|kilometre|km}} (about 900 {{w|mile|miles}}) of reef and 800 individual reef systems, and showed the reef's middle third bleached, with its north third bleached last year.

Scientists Terry Hughes and James Kerry were responsible for the latest study. They placed the blame firmly on {{W|global warming}} and the stress rising temperatures places on delicate ecosystems. "The bleaching is caused by record-breaking temperatures driven by global warming," said Hughes in a statement. "This year, 2017, we are seeing mass bleaching, even without the assistance of {{w|El Niño}} conditions.”

At this rate, the reef is unlikely to recover, due to the relentless damage and time frames. James Kerry says that even the fastest growing coral takes around a decade to reproduce, so two bleaching events in 12 months offer the reef no prospect of recovery.

[[North Korea]] released a statement yesterday warning they are "ready" for "war", following [[United States|US]] President [[Donald Trump]]'s deployment of military ships to the [[Korean Peninsula]].

The regime's foreign ministry said "The DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea — North Korea] is ready to react to any mode of war desired by the US," ahead of the birthday of the late founder of the nation, current leader [[Kim Jong-un]]'s grandfather {{w|Kim Il-sung}}.

GNOME to be Ubuntu's default desktop environment, Canonical to stop investing in Ubuntu Phone

2017-04-07T18:18:01Z

Pi zero: well... if it's in CAT:South Africa it should be in CAT:Africa {{date|April 8, 2017}} {{computing}} On Wednesday, {{w|Mark Shuttleworth}}, founder of the {{w|Ubuntu}} operating system, announced the open source OS will end its ties with the {{w|Unity (user interface)|Unity8 desktop environment}} and that Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Long Term Service) will be shipped with the {{w|GNOME}} desktop environment by default. Unity has been Ubuntu's default desktop environment since it was released six years ago in 2011. In his blog post, Shuttleworth explained growth of products are decided by the market and the community. {{w|Canonical, Ltd.}}, the software company behind Ubuntu, could not gain investors from Unity8, Ubuntu Phone and the convergence shell. Instead, they are shifting their Ubuntu focus on to cloud and IoT ({{w|Internet of Things}}), which Shuttleworth notes finds application in "auto, robotics, networking, and machine learning". Canonical — after making controversial desktop environment Unity the default — launched their own smartphone in 2013, called {{W|Ubuntu Edge}}, with a crowd funding campaign target of [[US$]]32 million but could not cross the US$13 million mark. A couple of years later, Canonical partnered with bq, Fairphone and Meizu to launch Ubuntu phones. Unity worked for Ubuntu phones but did not perform well in the global market. "I'm not giving up! I will do my best to keep Ubuntu touch and Unity8 standing on both it's{{sic}} legs!", Ubports' developer Marius Gripsgård posted on his {{w|Google+}} profile on Wednesday. "The choice, ultimately, is to invest in the areas which are contributing to the growth of the company", Shuttleworth wrote in the blog. Following this announcement, GNOME [[twitter|tweeted]], "Welcome back Canonical! Ubuntu 18.04 LTS to ship with GNOME by default!". Currently, Ubuntu is available in various desktop environments like Ubuntu GNOME (GNOME), Ubuntu MATE ({{w|MATE (software)|MATE}}), Xubuntu ({{w|XFCE}}), Kubuntu ({{w|KDE Plasma}}), Lubuntu ({{w|LXDE}}) and Ubuntu Budgie ({{w|Budgie (desktop environment)|Budgie}}), though Unity remains the default for the upcoming version, 17.04 (Zesty Zapus). {{haveyoursay}} == Sources == *{{source|url=http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-39490848 |title=Ubuntu ends Unity software unification project |author= |pub=BBC Online |date=April 6, 2017 }} *{{source|url=https://insights.ubuntu.com/2017/04/05/growing-ubuntu-for-cloud-and-iot-rather-than-phone-and-convergence/ |title=Growing Ubuntu for cloud and IoT, rather than phone and convergence |author=Mark Shuttleworth |pub=Ubuntu Insights |date=April 5, 2017 }} *{{source |url=https://twitter.com/gnome/status/849685715923456001 |title=GNOME on Twitter |date=April 5, 2017 |pub=Twitter |author=GNOME }} *{{source |url=https://plus.google.com/110699558853693437587/posts/7RHujp9u7oW |title=I'm not giving up!

Brendan Rodgers pens four-year contract extention with Celtic

Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Brendan Rodgers pens four-year contract extension with Celtic FC": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite)) {{Date|April 8, 2017}} {{Football}} Yesterday, [[Northern Ireland|Northern Irish]] [[Football (soccer)|football]] manager {{w|Brendan Rodgers}} signed a four-year contract extension with [[Scotland|Scottish]] club {{w|Celtic F.C.}}, the club announced via their official website. The extended contract runs through June 2021. His previous contract was to expire at the end of the season. After signing the contract, Rodgers said, "It was an easy decision for me[...] Personally and professionally I’m in a great place, a few years ago I might have been in a rush but you learn through experience to appreciate what you have. What I have here is that I'm a supporter who got very, very lucky, but hopefully I can help to develop the club along with the people who are already here." The 44-year-old manager joined the Glasgow side in 2016 replacing {{w|Ronny Deila}}, and guided ''The Bhoys'' to the national league victory on Sunday. Celtic, who secured their sixth consecutive {{w|Scottish Premiership}} title with eight games to spare have a chance to complete a first domestic treble since 2001, having already won the {{w|Scottish League Cup}} and having qualified for the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup later in April under Rodgers. Rodgers narrowly missed out on the {{w|Premier League}} trophy with [[Liverpool F.C.]] in 2014. Rodgers enjoyed his first ever league victory with Celtic, and earned a spot in next season's [[UEFA Champions League]]'s group stage. Celtic under Rodgers have extended an unbeaten streak to 38 matches in the Scottish league. Rodgers was sacked by Liverpool in October 2015 after three-and-half-years of service at {{w|Anfield}}; and former [[Borussia Dortmund]]'s manager {{w|Jürgen Klopp}} filled his vacated spot. Peter Lawwell, Celtic's Chief Executive said, "Brendan has made a huge impact at Celtic already. He's an outstanding manager and we believe he is one of the best coaches in Europe, if not world football, and we're delighted that he has committed his future to Celtic." {{Haveyoursay}} == Related news == * {{Wikinews|Celtic FC wins sixth consecutive Scottish Premiership title|Tuesday, April 4, 2017}} * {{Wikinews|Jürgen Klopp signs 3 year contract with Liverpool|Saturday, October 10, 2015}} == Sources == * {{Source | url = http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/39526811 | title = Brendan Rodgers: Celtic manager signs new four-year deal | author = | pub = BBC Sport | date = April 7, 2017 }} * {{Source | url = http://www.celticfc.net/news/12368 | title = Celtic delighted as Brendan Rodgers signs new 4-year contract | author = | pub = Celtic F.C. | date = April 7, 2017 }} * {{Source | url = http://www.celticfc.net/news/12373 | title = Brendan Rodgers: This was an easy decision for me to make | author = Jo Hendry | pub = Celtic F.C. | date = April 7, 2017 }} {{Publish}} {{Archive}} [[Category:Scotland]] [[Category:Glasgow]] [[Category:Sports]] [[Category:Football (soccer)]] [[Category:Celtic F.C.]] [[es:Brendan Rodgers firmó contrato por cuatro años con el Celtic]][...]



Pop-artist James Rosenquist dies aged 83

{{obituaries}}
Well-known {{w|pop art}} figure {{w|James Rosenquist}} died on Friday, his family announced, in his {{w|New York City}} home after a long illness, at the age of 83.
[[File:James rosenquist1.jpg|thumb|left|260px|James Rosenquist, from file, 2008. {{image|[[w:User:Russ Blaise|Russ Blaise]]}}]]
Mr Rosenquist leaves behind a legacy of involvement in the pop art movement, playing a pivotal role in the movement's conception in the 1960s. His career as a heyday pop-artist was defined by his billboard painting style which incorporated subject matter from popular culture and the mass media and created large scale artworks.

Although his works were rarely politically charged, his best-known work, the 1964/1965 ''F-111'', used a combination of war imagery and everyday influences to protest {{w|US}} militarism in relation to the {{w|Vietnam War}}. It now resides in the collection of the {{w|Museum of Modern Art}} in New York.

The 1960s pop art movement was defined by artists like {{w|Andy Warhol}} and {{w|Roy Lichtenstein}}, contemporaries of Mr. Rosenquist. Although part of the same art movement, Rosenquist wrote in his 2009 autobiography, ''Painting Below Zero: Notes on a Life in Art'', that he was less interested in "logos or brand names", and more concerned with creating what he described as "mysterious pictures".

[[File:Park Geun-hye (8724400493) (cropped).jpg|thumb|left|260px|File photo of Park Geun-hye, 2013. {{image|Korean Culture and Information Service (Cheong Wa Dae)}}]] A court in {{w|Seoul}} issued an arrest warrant for the former president, after a hearing yesterday to determine whether she should be arrested. Park was accused of abusing her power, bribery, and illegally colluding with long-time friend {{w|Choi Soon-sil}}. Park Geun-hye was accused of working with Choi Soon-sil to use foundations to accept donations from major South Korean companies. The foundations then backed the former president's policy initiatives. Park was also accused of accepting bribes for political favours from conglomerates, such as from {{w|Samsung Group}}'s chief {{w|Jay Y. Lee}}. In the hearing Park argued against her arrest that she posed no flight risk and swore she would not tamper with evidence. After her eight hour's worth of testimony, a judge at the Seoul District Court said there was sufficient evidence to arrest the former leader and said evidence could be destroyed if they did not. Both Park and Choi deny they did anything wrong. Park has been put in a detention facility located just outside Seoul to await further legal proceedings. Officials for the facility have said Park will be expected to adhere to the existing rules in place at the centre. Elections to appoint a new president are scheduled to be held on May 9. {{haveyoursay}} == Sources == *{{source|url=http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-03-31/south-korea-ex-president-park-geun-hye-arrested/8403316 |title=Park Geun-hye: South Korea's former president arrested over corruption allegations |author={{w|Associated Press|AP}}/{{w|Reuters}} |pub=ABC News (Australia) |date=March 31, 2017 }} *{{source|url=http://www.reuters.com/article/us-southkorea-politics-idUSKBN17107B |title=Ousted South Korean leader behind bars after arrest on bribery charges |author=Cynthia Kim, Ju-min Park |pub=Reuters |date=March 31, 2017 }} *{{source|url=https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/mar/30/south-korea-park-geun-hye-arrest-warrant |title=Ousted South Korea president Park Geun-hye jailed over corruption allegations |author={{w|Associated Press|AP}} |pub=The Guardian |date=March 30, 2017 }} *{{source|url=https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/30/world/asia/park-geun-hye-south-korea-arrest.html |title=Park Geun-hye, South Korea’s Ousted Leader, Is Arrested and Jailed to Await Trial |author=Choe Sang-Hun |pub=The New York Times |date=March 30, 2017 }} {{Publish}} {{Archive}} [[Category:South Korea]] [[Category:Korean Peninsula]] [[Category:Asia]] [[Category:Politics and conflicts]] [[Category:Crime and law]][...]



Israel approves first West Bank settlement in 20 years

Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Israel approves first West Bank settlement in over 20 years": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite)) {{date|April 2, 2017}} {{Israel}} {{w|Israel}}'s security cabinet unanimously approved on Thursday construction of the first official {{w|West Bank}} settlement in over 20 years, continuing a process that many in the international community consider illegal. The new settlement is to be near the {{w|Palestine|Palestinian}} city of {{w|Ramallah, Palestine|Ramallah}}. The decision comes after the demolition of {{w|Amona, Mateh Binyamin|Amona}}, another West Bank settlement, which president {{w|Benjamin Netanyahu}} vowed to replace. Israel's high court found the settlement was illegally built on land under private Palestinian ownership. "I had promised from the start that I would create a new settlement. It seems to me that I made that commitment in December and I will keep it today," President Netanyahu told reporters on Thursday. The international community considers Israeli West Bank settlements illegal and, generally, undermining peace between Israel and Palestine. Outgoing {{w|US|}} president {{w|Barack Obama}} used his final interview to criticise Israel's West Bank policy. "Today's announcement," said {{w|Palestine Liberation Organization}} executive committee member {{w|Hanan Ashrawi}}, "once again proves that Israel is more committed to appeasing its illegal settler population than to abiding by the requirements for stability and a just peace." Over half a million Israelis live in settlements on the West Bank and in the eastern parts of {{w|Jerusalem}}. Israel cites security needs and {{w|Judaism|religious}} connection to the land as justifications for construction on the West Bank. {{haveyoursay}} == Sources == *{{source|url=http://www.news.com.au/world/breaking-news/israel-approves-new-settlement/news-story/ad07a0b5768dfc256c2da271720f0a24 |title=Israel approves West Bank settlement |author={{w|Associated Press|AP}} |pub=News.com.au |date=March 31, 2017 }} *{{source|url=http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/israel-approves-settlement-first-two-decades-benjamin-netanyahu-amona-emek-shilo-ramallah-a7659216.html |title=Israel approves first new settlement in two decades |author=Samuel Osborne |pub=The Independent |date=March 31, 2017 }} *{{source|url=http://www.jns.org/news-briefs/2017/3/30/netanyahu-i-will-keep-promise-to-build-new-community-in-judea-and-samaria |title=Netanyahu: ‘I will keep’ promise to build new community in Judea and Samaria |author= |pub=JNS.org |date=March 30, 2017 }} *{{source|url=http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/police-evictions-of-illegal-west-bank-settlers-met-with-violent-protests-from-israelis-amona-a7556756.html |title=Police evictions of illegal West Bank settlers met with violent protests from Israelis |author=Bethan Mckernan |pub=The Independent |date=February 1, 2017 }} *{{source|url=http://www.skynews.com.au/news/politics/international/2017/01/16/obama-highlights-israel-in-last-interview.html |title=Obama highlights Israel in last interview |author={{w|Associated Press|AP}} |pub=Sky News |date=January 16, 2017 }} {{Publish}} {{Archive}} [[Category:Israel]][...]



James Jackson charged with terrorism after hate-crime murder

Pi zero: Changed protection level for "James Jackson charged with terrorism after Manhattan murder": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite)) {{date|March 30, 2017}} {{crime and law}} James Harris Jackson was charged on Monday with murder as an act of terrorism, after allegedly fatally stabbing Timothy Caughman in {{w|Manhattan}} last week. Jackson said the act was motivated with intent to kill a "black man". Caughman, 66, allegedly was stabbed in the chest with an 18-inch sword, from behind, while collecting recyclable bottles. He made his own way for help to a nearby police station, bleeding. He was taken to {{w|NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue|Bellevue hospital}} but died there. Jackson, 28, is a former soldier who served in {{w|Afghanistan}}. In an interview with the ''{{w|New York Daily News}}'' from {{w|New York City}}'s {{w|Rikers Island}} jail complex, Jackson revealed he intentionally traveled from [[Baltimore]], where he grew up, with a plan to go on a killing spree to murder black men. He added that he considered "1950s America" an ideal society. Jackson had also already been charged with murder as a {{w|Hate crime|hate crime}}. Jackson said he wanted to convince white women not to mix interracially and "had been thinking about it for a long time, for the past couple of years". On March 22, he turned himself in to police in {{w|Times Square}}. Since being kept in jail, Jackson has received many death threats. His attorney, Sam Talkin, said "we're going to address the obvious psychological issues that are present in this case" if the allegations are proven true. Vigils and marches have been held in mourning of Caughman's death. Jackson's arraignment is scheduled for April 13. {{haveyoursay}} == Sources == *{{source|url=https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/mar/27/new-york-stabbing-hate-crime-james-jackson-timothy-caughman |title=Man accused of killing black man in 'practice run' charged with terrorism |author={{w|Associated Press|AP}} |pub=The Guardian |date=March 27, 2017 }} *{{source|url=http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/crime/bs-md-jackson-indicted-20170327-story.html |title=James Jackson indicted for murder as act of terrorism, hate crime in stabbing of black man in New York |author=Jean Marabella |pub=The Baltimore Sun |date=March 27, 2017 }} *{{source|url=http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/james-jackson-twisted-regrets-killing-timothy-caughman-article-1.3009736 |title=EXCLUSIVE: White supremacist James Jackson reveals deranged desire to kill black men to save white women in jailhouse interview |author=Ellen Moynihan, Stephen Rex Brown |pub=New York Daily News |date=March 26, 2017 }} *{{source|url=http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/manhattan/suspect-midtown-knife-killing-surrenders-cops-article-1.3005263 |title=Racist Maryland man who fatally stabbed black New Yorker admits his intent to kill African-American men |author=Rocco Parascandola, Graham Rayman, Thomas Tracy |pub=New York Daily News |date=March 23, 2017 }} {{Publish}} {{Archive}} [[Category:Crime and law]] [[Category:North America]] [[Category:United States]] [[Category:New York]] [[Category:New York, New York]] [[Category:Manhattan]][...]



Terrorist attack on the church in Hobart city. The reason is Nongoloza cult

McGeddon: cut named individuals


{{tasks|src|re-review}}{{abandoned}}

{{date|March 27, 2017}}
[[File:The New Apostollic Church.png|thumb|The New Apostollic Church]]
In the city of Hobart (Tasmania) for the third consecutive day, unknown persons by the phone are threaten to blow up the New Apostolic church. Responsibility for this terrorist attack takes the anti-cult movement C.S.A.R. - "Protezione contro culti e sette". Representatives of the church turned to the police for help. These events certainly have a negative impact on the reputation of the church. This creates not only a tense situation inside the church itself, but in general - in Tasmania. The last time in Australia was talking about terrorism in September 2016 - the attack of an Islamist in the park of Sydney.

As you can see, these two cases are very different. In Sydney, a terrorist attacked one person. But in Hobart the terrorist attack and the explosion of the New Apostolic church in can be terrible consequences and hundreds of victims. The most surprising thing is that the terrorists call the main cause - Nongoloza cult from South Africa.

We hope that soon the situation in Tasmania will stabilize and the criminals will be caught. In addition, it is worth considering what is Nongoloza cult. If this is really a dangerous religious cult, then in this case people from this cult have to be expeled from Tasmania.

Six aid workers dead in ambush in South Sudan

2017-03-27T08:17:32Z

Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Six aid workers dead in ambush in South Sudan": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite)) {{date|March 27, 2017}} {{South Sudan}} The [[United Nations]] (UN) has confirmed six aid workers in [[South Sudan]] were killed on Saturday in what the UN representative called a "{{wikt|heinous}} murder." The attack occurred in a government-controlled section of road as the six workers drove from the capital, {{W|Juba}}, northeast to {{W|Pibor}}. The victims were later found by other members of the humanitarian convoy. UN humanitarian coordinator for South Sudan Eugene Owusu described the attack as "utterly reprehensible". He also expressed his outrage that it occurred while humanitarian needs are higher than they have ever been. At least twelve aid works have died in South Sudan this year, according to the UN, 79 since the December 2013 outbreak of civil war. This month, the South Sudanese government also announced plans to increase visa fees for humanitarian workers to [[US$]]10,000. Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for South Sudan {{w|David Shearer}} said in response to the attack that humanitarian workers in South Sudan faced more danger than almost any other country. The country's deputy ambassador to the UN, Joseph Moum Malok, has reiterated the government's commitment to assist people affected by famine and civil war, and asked the international community to maintain their involvement. A UN report obtained by [[Agence France-Presse]] and [[Reuters]] has suggested the government is also continuing to expand its arms stockpile despite the famine, allegations the government denies. A recent outbreak of {{w|cholera}} in parts of the country has exacerbated the crisis and increased pressure on aid workers. UN figures suggest 7.5 million South Sudanese now require humanitarian aid, with one million verging on starvation. {{haveyoursay}} == Sources == *{{source|url=http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-39400650 |title=South Sudan ambush leaves six aid workers dead, UN says |author= |pub=BBC News Online |date=March 27, 2017 }} *{{source|url=http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/03/aid-workers-killed-ambush-south-sudan-170326164801543.html |title=UN: Six aid workers killed in ambush in South Sudan |author= |pub=Al Jazeera |date=March 27, 2017 }} *{{source|url=http://www.sudantribune.com/spip.php?article62009 |title=Six aid workers killed in South Sudan, U.N. calls for investigation |author= |pub=Sudan Tribune |date=March 26, 2017 }} *{{source|url=https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/26/world/africa/south-sudan-aid-workers-killed.html |title=Six Aid Workers Are Killed in South Sudan Ambush |author=[[Associated Press|AP]] |pub=The New York Times |date=March 26, 2017 }} {{Publish}} {{Archive}} [[CAT:South Sudan]] [[CAT:Crime and law]] [[CAT:United Nations]] [[CAT:Human rights]] [[Category:Africa]][...]
