first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, July 5th 2017 – Nassau – A high-speed chase and gunfight between two men and police officers through several communities in New Providence early this morning, has left one man in hospital and another arrested.According to a police report, at around 1am, officers attached to the Mobile Division received a report that two males in a white Camry vehicle were armed with firearms in the Carmichael Road area. When police confronted the suspects and signaled for the driver to stop the vehicle, he refused and sped off. Officers then chased the vehicle for several miles until the car crashed near the Sir Sidney’s Bridge on East Bay Street.The two male suspects then exited the vehicle and proceeded to open fire at the police. Officers returned fire and shot one of the male suspects. Both men were arrested and a handgun was recovered from their vehicle. The injured suspect is currently detained in hospital under heavy police guard. Investigations are continuing.Story By: Kay-Marie Fletcher#MagneticMediaNews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#HighSpeedChase, #magneticmedianewslast_img read more

95pc of Rangamati habitats destroyed in landslides illegal

first_imgThis general view shows dwellings under mud after a landslide in Rangamati on 13 June, 2017. Photo: AFPA municipality mayor of Rangamati district said as many as 95 per cent of the households destroyed in the landslides were illegal.”Less than 5 per cent of the houses destroyed in landslides were legal,” said Akbar Hossain Chowdhury, the Rangamati municipality mayor.The municipality mayor also said the district council actually gave permission to different individuals for settlement. He had no involvement with that, the mayor added.Recently at least 115 people were killed in a series of landslides in the hilly districts of southeast Bangladesh.Rangamati additional deputy commissioner Prakash Kanti told Prothom Alo that landslides killed at least 56 people in the municipality area alone.More than 150 houses were destroyed after landslides hit the areas.Authorities concerned said, according to law, anyone wanting to build a house in the area, must have deeds of the land, soil test reports, and architectural and building permission. That means the authorities only permits pucca (brick and cement) buildings.In reply to this, he said, “Most of the houses were either tin-sheds or of mud. The houses were built without our permission.”You will find a small number of houses there are pucca, Akbar Hossain added.Rangamati district council chairman Brishketu Chakma said, “The mayor can blame us, but we did not give permission for settlements there. He’s wrong.”Local people said some of the pucca buildings also collapsed in the landslides.Asked about it, the Rangamati municipality executive engineer Atikur Rahman said, “The entire hill is 80 feet but, engineers test soil up to 30 feet and submit their report.”On the other hand, some people build houses inside the hills. “Thus, it becomes tough for us to monitor the places.”Hill Tracts Citizen Committee’s president, Goutam Dewan blamed the municipality authorities in this regard.The former chairman of Rangamati municipality and district council said there is lack of coordination between municipality and district council authorities.It is high time to remove the lack of coordination, he added.*The article is rewritten in English by Toriqul Islamlast_img read more

18 dead as torrential rains submerge Thai south

first_imgHeavy rains continued to hammer Thailand’s flood-ravaged south on Saturday, bringing the death toll up to 18 and leaving thousands of villages partially submerged, authorities said.The flooding, which was roof-high in some areas, has affected nearly one million people in ten southern provinces since it started a week ago, the Interior Ministry said in a statement.At least 18 people have died and one is missing, it added, with the rains turning roads into rivers, inundating farmland and damaging more than 1,500 schools in the region.The downpour is expected to persist for at least two more days, according to Thailand’s Meteorological Department, which warned of flash floods.“The situation is very bad today and tomorrow. It’s still raining heavily,” said Junjuda Pornsri, a meterological official.Military bases across the region have been mobilised to help evacuate flood victims, provide temporary shelters and distribute emergency aid, the government said Saturday.In hard-hit Nakhon Si Thammarat province, two army helicopters were deployed to airlift food to families trapped inside their homes in Cha-uat district.Bapha Suthiphanya, a 60-year-old who has spent the past three nights in a makeshift government shelter in the district, said she was forced to evacuate her home after the waters rose above her head.“I was so shocked and scared. I’ve never seen water like this and I also can not swim,” she told AFP.Peak tourist seasonThe monsoon rains are unusually heavy for this time of year in Thailand, which normally sees a three-month stretch of relatively dry and cool weather starting in November.It is high season for tourists who flock to the kingdom’s island resorts, powering a crucial sector of the economy.But the deluge has already disrupted beach holidays in several traveller hotspots, including the popular islands of Samui and Phangan.Hundreds of tourists have had their flights delayed, while train and bus services on the mainland have also been suspended.Yet some travellers are refusing to let the storm stop the fun, with photos doing the rounds on social media of tourists coasting through flooded streets on pool floats, sipping drinks.“Some tourists are enjoying the flooding, they’re taking pictures and going swimming,” said Nongyao Jirundorn, a tourism official on Samui island.Neighbouring Malaysia was also hit by severe flooding earlier this week, with thousands stranded in relief centres in two northeastern states.But by Saturday, the number of evacuees in Kelantan and Terengganu had dropped to about 13,500, from almost 23,000 Wednesday, as weather conditions improved and authorities forecast less rainfall over the weekend.Prime Minister Najib Razak visited Kelantan on Saturday and met with people seeking shelter at a relief centre.last_img read more

HQ Trivias EmmysThemed Game Will Give 100000 Prize to One Winner

first_imgHQ Trivia is trying to horn in on TV’s biggest night: The live game-show app will stage a special Emmys-themed show next Monday, Sept. 17, during the Emmy Awards — with a $100,000 cash prize going to a single winner.Launched in August 2017, HQ Trivia has amassed a fanbase of millions (and numerous copycat competitors) with the promise of letting users win real money.In a normal game, the winning HQ Trivia players split the cash prize, sometimes ending up with just a few dollars each. But for the app’s Emmy Awards Night game, sponsored by Target, it will be a winner-takes-all format for the $100,000 pool. That would be its biggest payout to a single player to date.There’s another difference: For the Emmys game, host Scott Rogowsky will keep asking questions until only a single winner is left standing. Users will be able to use extra “lives” (letting them stay in the game after they’ve answered a question incorrectly) but only until question 15. The regular HQ Trivia games comprise 12 trivia questions, giving users just 10 seconds to tap the right multiple-choice answer. Popular on Variety HQ Trivia’s Emmys game is scheduled to start at 9 p.m. ET on Sept. 17 — right in the middle of the awards telecast. NBC will broadcast the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards live on Sept. 17, starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. According to HQ Trivia, its Emmys-themed event could include questions about TV shows, actors, and historical facts about the Emmy Awards and the telecast.The special edition of the trivia game comes as HQ Trivia’s momentum has waned. In July 2018, users downloaded the HQ Trivia app an estimated 560,000 times, down from over 2 million in February, according to research firm Sensor Tower. Last month, HQ Trivia launched an app for Apple TV to expand beyond mobile phones.HQ Trivia’s parent company, New York-based Intermedia Labs, was co-founded by Rus Yusupov and Colin Kroll. They’re two of the creators of Vine, which Twitter acquired in 2012 and then shut down four years later.HQ Trivia runs its regular games weekdays at 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. ET, and on the weekends at 9 p.m. ET. Questions are crafted created by a team of writers, researchers and fact-checkers, and the trivia gets harder as the game progresses.center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
