BREAKING: Multiple deaths in shootings at 2 New Zealand mosques

Multiple people were killed in mass shootings at two mosques full of people attending Friday prayers, as New Zealand police warned people to stay indoors as they tried to determine if more than one gunman was involved.

 

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described it as “one of New Zealand’s darkest days” and said the events in the city of Christchurch represented “an extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence.”

 

One person was taken into custody but it was unclear if there were other people involved, Police Commissioner Mike Bush said. He said anybody who was thinking of going to a mosque anywhere in New Zealand on Friday should stay put.

 

Authorities have not said who they have in custody. But a man who claimed responsibility for the shootings left a 74-page anti-immigrant manifesto in which he explained who he was and his reasoning for his actions. He said he considered it a terrorist attack.

Ardern at her news conference alluded to anti-immigrant sentiment as the possible motive, saying that while many people affected by the shootings may be migrants or refugees “they have chosen to make New Zealand their home, and it is their home. They are us. The person who has perpetuated this violence against us is not.”

 

Authorities have not yet said how many people were killed and wounded. “It’s a very serious and grave situation,” Bush said.

 

The deadliest shooting occurred at the Masjid Al Noor mosque in central Christchurch at about 13:45.

 

Witness Len Peneha said he saw a man dressed in black enter the mosque and then heard dozens of shots, followed by people running from the mosque in terror.

 

Peneha, who lives next door to the mosque, said the gunman ran out of the mosque, dropped what appeared to be a semi-automatic weapon in his driveway, and fled.

 

Peneha said he then went into the mosque to try and help.

 

“I saw dead people everywhere. There were three in the hallway, at the door leading into the mosque, and people inside the mosque,” he said. “It’s unbelievable nutty. I don’t understand how anyone could do this to these people, to anyone. It’s ridiculous.”

 

He said he helped about five people recover in his home. He said one was slightly injured.

 

“I’ve lived next door to this mosque for about five years and the people are great, they’re very friendly,” he said. “I just don’t understand it.”

 

He said the gunman was white and was wearing a helmet with some kind of device on top, giving him a military-type appearance.

 

Police said there was a second shooting at the Linwood Masjid Mosque.

 

Mark Nichols told the New Zealand Herald he heard about five gunshots and that a Friday prayer-goer returned fire with a rifle or shotgun.

 

Nichols said he saw two injured people being carried out on stretchers past his automotive shop and that both people appeared to be alive.

 

The man who claimed responsibility for the shooting said he was 28-year-old white Australian who came to New Zealand only to plan and train for the attack. He said he was not a member of any organisation, but had donated to and interacted with many nationalist groups, though he acted alone and no group ordered the attack.

 

He said the mosques in Christchurch and Linwood would be the targets, as would a third mosque in the town of Ashburton if he could make it there.

 

He said he chose New Zealand because of its location, to show that even the most remote parts of the world were not free of “mass immigration.”

 

Mass shootings in New Zealand are exceedingly rare. The deadliest in modern history occurred in the small town of Aramoana in 1990, when gunman David Gray shot and killed 13 people following a dispute with a neighbour.

‘Yellow vest’ rioting in Paris as anti-Macron protests persist

French “yellow vest” protesters have clashed with police in Paris, in the 18th straight weekend of demonstrations against President Emmanuel Macron and his government’s policies.

 

Large plumes of smoke on Saturday rose above the rioting on the landmark Champs-Elysees avenue in the French capital, as the demonstrators set fires and smashed up luxury stores.

 

Police tried to contain the protesters with tear gas and water cannons. More than 100 arrests were made.

 

One dangerous blaze targeted a bank on the ground floor of a seven-storey residential building. As firetrucks rushed over, a mother and her child were rescued as the fire threatened to engulf their floor, Paris’s fire service told The Associated Press news agency.

Eleven people in the building, including two firefighters, sustained light injuries, as other residents were evacuated to safety.

 

Simultaneous fires were also put out from two burning newspaper kiosks as groups of mostly black-clad demonstrators pelted the security forces with stones and erected barricades. Several protesters smiled as they posed for a photo in front of one the charred remains of the kiosks.

 

‘Ultraviolent minority’

Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said up to 8,000 demonstrators were in Paris on Saturday, including 1,500 “ultraviolent ones that are there to smash things up”.

 

The turnout was seen as a test for the “yellow vest” movement, which began in November over fuel tax hikes and quickly ballooned into an anti-government rebellion but has struggled lately to mobilise large numbers of protesters.

The movement against Macron’s perceived bias in favour of the elite, takes its name from the yellow safety vests French law requires all motorists to carry.

 

Last week, around 28,000 people demonstrated nationwide, according to the authorities, a tenth of the numbers that turned out for the inaugural protest on November 17.

 

The latest rally coincided with the end of a two-month public debate called by Macron to try take the heat out of the protests and give voters a forum to propose policy changes to address declining living standards, stagnant wages and high unemployment.

 

Around half a million people turned out at townhall-style meetings held around the country, but many “yellow vest” protesters dismissed the consultation as a smokescreen.

 

On social media, “yellow vest” leaders had hinted at the arrival of sympathisers from Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and even Poland.

 

“Macron, we’re coming to get you at home,” some of the protesters chanted, referring to the presidential palace situated near the Champs-Elysees.

Pep Guardiola Reveals What Will Happen If Man City Fail To Win Champions League

 

Pep Guardiola accepts his Manchester City tenure is likely to be judged on whether he succeeds in the Champions League or not.

 

The City boss has set extraordinarily high standards for himself having previously guided Barcelona to victory in the competition twice.

 

In comparison to that his spell in charge of Bayern Munich, where he was a three-time losing semi-finalist, is generally regarded as a disappointment, despite winning three Bundesliga titles and two German Cups.

 

Already at City, Guardiola has won the Premier League by a record margin and the League Cup twice, but he expects Europe to be the barometer of whether his reign is a success or failure.

 

He said: “I was judged in Munich in that way so I will be judged here as well. My period in Munich was not good for most people because we didn’t get one final. We got semi-finals but we didn’t get a final and we were judged.

 

“So, I’m a lucky guy. My standards are high. I have to reach it.”

10 Symptoms That Your Car Needs An Oil Change

Engine represents the blood of every car. The engine needs oil to move the moving parts and ensure smooth operation. In fact, all kinds of engines need oil to work. It doesn’t matter if you use a motorcycle, a generator or even a lawn mower. If the engine is equipped, it must be lubricated with oil.

 

Below are the top 10 characters for your vehicle’s oil change

 

1.

Dark or dirty oil

 

If you have never seen pure, new engine oil, it has a bright yellow color. However, if the oil gets older and dirty due to the accumulation of residual particles in the engine, it becomes darker, almost black.

 

You should do the habit of regularly checking the

condition of the oil. Remove the dipstick and see the oil color. Or wipe the tip of the dipstick with a paper towel for a more accurate result. If the oil is dark brown or black, you must replace the oil.

 

2.

Tapping Noises

 

Engine oil is aging and it will take some time. That’s why car manufacturers recommend that you change every 5,000 miles or so. If your car has an old oil, it will probably become heavier.

 

This makes oil lubrication in engine parts more difficult. As a result, the engine produces a variety of metallic sounds because they do not lubricate properly.

 

3.

Burnt Oil Smell

 

When the cabin interior of your vehicle begins to smell of burnt oil, you know that you have problems with oil. This usually means that the oil will leak somewhere and the oil will fall into the hot parts of the engine.

 

This also means that there is probably too little oil in the engine and the engine overheats. Take care of oil spill immediately and pour in fresh oil.

 

4.

Smoke from the Exhaust

 

If you live in a cold environment, you are used to seeing steam in the vehicle’s exhaust gases. However, if you see blue or gray smoke from your exhaust, you probably have an oil leak.

 

This is accompanied by a burnt oil smell and the smoke resulting from the lack of oil in the engine to lubricate its parts due to leakage. Remove oil spill and replace oil.

 

5.

Car Stopping

 

If you drive and the vehicle stops, you may have a small problem or a bigger problem. A little problem would be if you have a clogged fuel filter or bad spark plugs. Something can be replaced with simple tuning. A bigger problem would be a bad fuel pump or a clogged catalyst that needs to be replaced.

 

6.

Poor Fuel Consumption

 

If you find that gas mileage is not what it used to be, it may mean that you are late for oil change. When the engine oil expires, it gradually becomes smooth and eventually becomes almost muddy if it is not changed. Thick oil gives more resistance to moving parts of the engine, making it harder and consuming more fuel.

 

Poor gas consumption can also be due to other reasons. However, if the oil is dark and much thicker than the new oil, a simple oil change will help.

 

7.

Overheating

 

If there is not enough oil in the engine or if the oil has not been changed for a while, the engine components cannot be beaten. This causes the engine to continue heating and eventually overheat. Changing oil with fresh oil often corrects the problem.

 

8.

Difficulty starting the engine

 

If you find it difficult to start the engine, you may need to check the battery connections for corrosion and clean them with a steel brush. If the battery is at least several years old, it may be time to replace the battery.

 

You may find that the engine hesitates before it starts when the dashboard lights get weak. Of course, you need optimization to clean the battery connectors and connectors, or even replace them with a new one.

 

9.

Warning lights

 

Vehicles and vehicle sensors nowadays make it easier to detect the problem before it gets worse. If the indicator light on the dashboard, check the owner’s manual for what this lamp means. Warning lights alert you to all kinds of problems, such as: Low battery, burned back light, transmission failure, etc.

 

Some of the newer vehicles even track the status of the oil (via sensors or set time slots) and tell when it’s time to change it. In some cases, the indicator light turns on. That’s why you need to use an OBD2 scanner to make the mechanic diagnose or check the problem.

 

10.

Reluctant postponement

 

If you are using an automatic vehicle, you should not have problems if your car is changing gear. However, delaying or slowing down the transfer may mean that you need new gear fluid or filters. Of course, it can also mean a worse problem. If you take the car for refurbishment, this will at least identify the problem.

 

 

POINTS TO NOTE:

 

It is always important to constantly monitor the oil in the engine, because its plays a vital role in terms of keeping the vehicle in a smooth motion.

Cristiano Ronaldo Faces Ban For Swearing At Atletico Madrid Fans (Photos)

Cristiano Ronaldo is facing a ban from UEFA after he allegedly shouted “son of a bit**” at Atletico Madrid Fans In the Champions League win.

 

Ronaldo bagged a hat-trick as Juve came from 2-0 down on aggregate to win 3-2 in Tuesday’s last-16 Champions League tie.

 

His third, from the penalty spot, came in the closing stages of the second leg and sparked wild celebrations among the Juventus players and fans.

 

And Ronaldo appeared to be venting plenty of frustrations at the away supporters, having previously played for their city rivals Real Madrid.

 

Ronaldo was picked up on Vamos de Movistar cameras, and Spanish lip-readers claim the 34-year-old was shouting “hijos de puta” (sons of b******).

 

The superstar could now face a ban fromUEFA, especially when paired with his celebration.

 

The Juve star grabbed his crotch, like Atletico boss Diego Simeone did after the first leg.

 

Ronaldo appeared to aim his gesture at the travelling Atletico fans, something the La Liga club are believed to not be best pleased with.

 

Simeone was fined 20,000 euros (£17,000) for his gesture for improper conduct.

Nigeria Climbs To Third Position In Mobile Malware Attacks In 2018

Four African countries made the list in terms of top 10 countries by share of users attacked by mobile malware; Nigeria climbs from fifth place in 2017 to third in 2018.

 

Kaspersky Lab researchers have seen the number of attacks using malicious mobile software nearly double in just a year. In 2018 there were 116.5 million attacks, compared to 66.4 million in 2017, with a significant increase in unique users being affected.

 

Despite more devices being attacked, the number of malware files has decreased; leading researchers to conclude that the quality of mobile malware has become more impactful and precise. These and other findings are unveiled in Kaspersky Lab’s report Mobile malware evolution 2018.

 

 

As the world becomes more mobile, the role of smartphones in business processes and day to day life is growing rapidly. In response, cybercriminals are paying more attention to how they are distributing malware and the attack vectors used.

 

The channels through which malware is delivered to users and infects their devices is a key part of the success of a malicious campaign today, taking advantage of those users who do not have any security solutions installed on their phones.

 

The success of the distribution strategies is demonstrated not only by the increase in attacks, but also the number of unique users that have encountered malware. In 2018 this figure rose by 774,000 on the previous year, to 9,895,774 affected users.

 

Among the threats encountered, the most significant growth was in the use of Trojan-Droppers, whose share almost doubled from 8.63% to 17.21%. This type of malware is designed to bypass system protection and deliver there all sorts of malware, from banking Trojans to ransomware.

 

“In 2018, mobile device users faced what could have been the fiercest cybercriminal onslaught ever seen. Over the course of the year, we observed both new mobile device infection techniques, such as DNS hijacking, along with an increased focus on enhanced distribution schemes, like SMS spam.

 

This trend demonstrates the growing need for mobile security solutions to be installed on smartphones – to protect users from device infection attempts, regardless of the source,” said Viсtor Chebyshev, security expert at Kaspersky Lab.

 

Four African countries made the list in terms of top 10 countries by share of users attacked by mobile malware – Nigeria in 3rd place at 37.72%, Algeria in 5th place (35.06%), Tanzania in 8th place (31.34%) and Kenya in 9th place with 29.72%.

Maradona Describes Cristiano Ronaldo In Two Words

Maradona describes Cristiano Ronaldo in two words

 

Argentine football icon, Diego Maradona has hailed Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo as a “sorcerer.”

 

Maradona stated this after the magical Juventus star fulfilled his pre-match prediction by scoring a hat-trick against Spanish side, Atletico Madrid.

 

Juventus share price shot up by 20% after reaching the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday to pay back another chunk of Ronaldo’s £85m transfer fee.

 

Reacting to the player’s performance, Maradona told Marca, “There are players who have been touched by a magic wand. We Argentines are proud that Lionel Messi is Argentinian.

 

“The other one is an animal. Ronaldo is pure power, and now he’s also a sorcerer. He said he’d score three goals and he scored three goals.”

 

The Portuguese captain netted his eighth Champions League hat-trick to draw level with Messi and to extend his record tally to 124 goals in 160 matches. He has scored 63 times in the knockout stages.

Scholes Resigns As Oldham Manager, After Just 31 Days In Charge

Paul Scholes has resigned from Oldham Athletic with immediate effect, after just 31 days in charge of the League Two club.

 

The former Manchester United midfielder was appointed as boss of the Latics on February 11, but remarkably after just over a month in charge he has called time on his first managerial experience.

 

The 44-year-old, who supported Oldham as boy, has claimed he has been forced to walk away from the role as he feels he is unable to “operate as intended” and has stated he was misled before taking job.

 

Scholes won his first match at the helm of his hometown club, but subsequently drew three and lost three games during his brief spell in charge.

 

The 44-year-old issued a statement, that read:

 

‘It is with great regret that I have decided to leave the club with immediate effect.

 

“I hoped to at the very least, see out my initial term of 18 months as the manager of a club I’ve supported all my life. The fans, players, my friends and family all knew how proud and excited I was to take this role.

 

“In the short period since I took on the role it unfortunately became clear that I would not be able to operate as I intended and was led to believe prior to taking on the role.

 

“I wish the fans, the players and the staff – who have been tremendous – all the best for the rest of the season and will continue to watch and support the club as a fan.”

Neymar To Face UEFA Disciplinary Panel For Slamming Mat Officials After PSG Loss

Last week, in what seemed like a miracle, Manchester United inspired an unbelievable comeback against PSG at the Le Parc des Princes to scale through the UEFA Champions League round of 16. The win came after a 2-0 deficit at the Old Trafford in favor of PSG. However, Man U defeated the French giants with 3 goals to 1, setting them on a 3-3 aggregate and the Reds won on away goals.

 

PSG forward, Neymar Jr. who was sidelined during the two games due to a broken bone in his foot, reacted badly to the loss after Man U was awarded a last minute penalty that Rashford converted.

 

It was a controversial penalty from a handball which the referee had to consult VAR before taking his decision. Reacting to the loss, Neymar took to his social media handle, Instagram, to vent his disappointment at the decision of the officials. He wrote:

 

“This is a disgrace, they put four people that know nothing about football in charge of looking at the replay for VAR.

 

There is no penalty. How can it be a handball when it hits his back?! Go f**k yourselves!”

 

However, on Wednesday, after deliberating on his social media outburst, the UEFA is set to investigate Neymar’s behavior and if found guilty, he will face possible fine or ban from further UEFA games in the future. The statement reads below:

Messi Surprised By Magical Ronaldo Showing

 

Barcelona star, Lionel Messi, has revealed surprise at Cristiano Ronaldo’s magical performance against Atletico Madrid in the round of 16.

 

Juventus slipped past Atletico Madrid in Tuesday’s second leg, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring two headers and a penalty to see the Italian club overturn a 2-0 first-leg loss and leaving the Barca star to marvel at the exploits of his former Real Madrid rival.

 

Following Barcelona’s victory against Lyon, Messi said;

 

“Cristiano and Juventus were awesome, it was a big surprise because I thought Atletico would be stronger.

 

“But Juventus overcame them and Cristiano had a magical night with three goals.”

 

Messi and Barcelona must now wait until Friday’s draw to see who they will face in the quarter-finals, but the 31-year-old doesn’t see a preferred opponent in the last eight.

 

“All rivals are difficult, we can’t choose,” he said. “We have to wait for the draw and see who will be our rival.

 

“City, Juventus, Ajax, all are really good. Liverpool have offensive success and they showed at Munich. All of them will be complicated.

Adesua Etomi On Vogue US Magazine 2019

Our very own super star, Adesua Etomi-Wellington is one of the four women on the cover of Vogue US magazine’s latest issue.

 

The April 2019 issue is tagged “The Global Issue” and has two covers celebrating 14 global superstars from 14 different countries.

 

Read what they wrote about Adesua below…

 

“The Nigerian actress Adesua Etomi-Wellington can’t walk down the street in Lagos without getting mobbed, and if she’s with her husband, the actor Banky Wellington, forget it—a trip to the grocery store launches a thousand selfies. But unlike some of her cohorts on the shoot, she’s more of a third-culture kid, born in Nigeria and raised mainly in England. (She speaks in two fluent accents—Lagos and the British Midlands.) She went to school in Coventry, studied drama at University of Wolverhampton, and then got a nine-to-five job with the fashion arm of a large supermarket chain. It was then that, as she puts it, “I can’t explain it—I felt I had to go back to Nigeria.”

 

That was toward the end of 2012, and in the past six years or so she has become one of the biggest stars in Nollywood, Nigeria’s relatively young film industry. The Wedding Party (2016), a colorful and witty romantic comedy in which she plays the lead opposite Wellington, was the highest-grossing film in the history of Nigerian cinema, until it was eclipsed by its sequel, which also starred Etomi-Wellington. In fact, she points out, of the four films that have done best for the relatively young industry, she is in three. “I love, love, love Nollywood,” Etomi-Wellington says brightly over tea and biscuits at the shoot. “I feel like she’s my baby, and it’s my responsibility, along with a lot of other performers, to grow her.””
