The Briton used his left hand to telling effect throughout an intriguing affair, in which New Zealand’s Parker displayed swift hands, movement and impressive durability.

But his WBO title always looked like it would end up round Joshua’s waist as a significant points gap opened up, with the favourite landing a hard left uppercut in round eight and two stinging left hooks early in the 10th.Image result for Joshua Beats Parker To Unify WBA, IBF, WBO Belts
 According to BBC, Parker tagged his rival to howls of concern in the 11th and he deserves immense respect for becoming the first man to take Joshua to the scorecards, which read 118-110 118-110 119-109.

Joshua raised his right hand on ring announcer Michael Buffer’s reading of the cards and he now holds three of the four recognised world titles. Parker looked at the sky.

But the New Zealander played his part in a compelling evening and brought colour to an intriguing build-up. Never before had two world champions from the glamour division met to unify titles on British soil.

For the away fighter this was a whole new level of scrutiny; for Joshua, it was a third consecutive stadium fight, with a cumulative 250,000 seats sold in the process.

 Each fighter walked to the ring to an accompaniment of strobe lights, flames and fireworks, with the estimated 78,000 in attendance providing a glittering background as smartphones lit up the tiers. When the bell rang, Parker looked sharp, flicking his left jab to keep his opponent at bay and maintaining a guard with just his right hand, compared with two high hands from Joshua.Image result for Joshua Beats Parker To Unify WBA, IBF, WBO Belts
 Afterwards, Joshua pointed to about he felt came down to “boxing finesse” and there is no doubt he used the jab and repeated left hooks tactically to stave off his opponent’s threat. It took until the halfway stage before either man truly began to load their shots, as early respect gave way.

Parker stung early in the sixth, gave chase and landed his own left hand from a crouched position. The beaten man admitted he lost to a “better champion” but he at least showed the “granite chin” his camp had built much of their hope on beforehand.

Unlike Joshua, Parker has never been dropped as an amateur or a professional and he showed his durability in sucking up two hard left hooks early in the 10th.
   
This was a more chess-like Joshua. The knockout artist Britain has grown to love was forced to show us poise over 36 minutes, although the results never really looked in doubt.

TRAVELLERS TO THE United States will soon have to submit their social media identities, previous telephone numbers and email addresses, a measure that could touch 10 million people per year.According to a State Department plan published today, visa seekers whether visitors or would-be immigrants will be presented with a list of social media platforms.Applicants will be required to identify which they use and provide “any identifiers used by applicants for those platforms during the five years preceding the date of application”.“Other questions seek five years of previously used telephone numbers, email addresses, and international travel,” the notice, published in the Federal Register, revealed.

When these new rules were first suggested last year as part of what US President Donald Trump has called “extreme vetting” of would-be visitors, civil liberties groups sounded the alarm about privacy.But officials say they could identify potential extremists, such as one of the attackers in the December 2015 San Bernadino shooting who got a visa despite allegedly advocating “jihad” on social media.The measures apply both to the DS-260 “Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration Form” and the DS-160 “Application for Nonimmigrant Visa.”In the last fiscal year, 559,536 people applied for US immigrant visas and 9,681,913 for various forms of visitor visa. Friday’s announced measures will not touch diplomatic or official travellers.The announcement begins a 60-day period in which interested bodies and members of the public will be allowed to submit comments on the rule changes, which are expected to be approved on May 29.

Unarmed black man killed by police was shot 7 times in back, autopsy finds.

News: Stephon Clark Press Conference
A PATHOLOGIST HIRED by lawyers for the family of an unarmed man killed by Sacramento police says an independent autopsy shows Stephon Clark was shot seven times from behind and took up to 10 minutes to die.Dr Bennet Omalu who was portrayed by Will Smith in the film Concussion told a news conference today that Clark was shot in the right back side of the neck and had a cluster of wounds in the upper right side of his back.The pathologist said any one of those wounds would have been fatal, and death would have taken three to 10 minutes.Police have said Clark was facing and advancing toward officers who thought he had a gun when they fired, and then could not approach Clark for five minutes.

The pathologist said Clark also suffered an eighth gunshot wound to the thigh that occurred as he was falling or already on the ground.The news came after a funeral was held for the 22-year-old in Sacramento yesterday amidst high tension between the black community and police in California’s capital city.Police in riot gear stood waiting outside the Golden 1 Center as fans wove through barricades and fencing yesterday to enter for a Sacramento Kings-Indiana Pacers basketball game.But protesters never came, heeding calls from Stephon’s brother Stevante Clark and Black Lives Matter organisers to avoid the arena. Instead, they blocked rush hour traffic on nearby downtown streets.

The 18 March shooting of Clark by Sacramento police officers has sparked near-daily protests downtown, with his name becoming a rallying cry for police reform in California and beyond.Two officers responding to a call of someone breaking car windows shouted that Clark had a gun before firing 20 bullets at him, but he had only a cellphone.Delivering Stephon Clark’s eulogy yesterday, the Reverend Al Sharpton praised demonstrators for their restraint and urged them to follow the lead of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr and his advocacy of nonviolent protest.“I want the folks in California to know that there’s nothing wrong with how these young people are standing up,” he thundered. “They’re not being violent, they’re asking for you to stop being violent to them.

More than 500 people packed into the church to celebrate Stephon Clark’s life, remembering his dance moves, smarts and love for his two young sons.Stevante Clark interrupted the musical and scriptural celebration by hugging and kissing the casket, leading the crowd in chanting his brother’s name, pounding his chest and shouting. Others on the stage attempted to calm him, with limited success.Sharpton hugged and consoled him and told the crowd not to judge how families grieve.
APTOPIX Sacramento Police Shooting
“This brother could be any one of us, so let them express and grieve,” Sharpton said. “We are proud of them for standing up for justice.”The Sacramento Kings and their owner have been supportive of the Clark family.The team announced plans to set up an education fund for Stephon Clark’s children and a partnership with Black Lives Matter Sacramento to bring “transformational change” to the city’s black communities.Former Kings player Matt Barnes attended the funeral, as did Mayor Darrell Steinberg, who promised to work with Stevante Clark days after he disrupted a City Council meeting.


The protests have caused disruption, though largely peaceful, around the arena, a focal point of the city’s revitalisation efforts in a downtown that’s struggled economically and has a heavy homeless population.Some businesses have been shutting down early while commuters have been snarled in rush hour traffic due to closed streets during the protests.West Sacramento resident Onyeabo Aduba, 33, said he cancelled reservations yesterday at a restaurant near the arena for his girlfriend’s birthday because of the protests. But Aduba said he’s supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement and frustrated that efforts such as requiring police to wear body cameras haven’t made real change.He said the community’s level of support for the demonstrators has been surprising.
Sacramento Police Shooting
“Sacramento is more liberal than conservative but I think it’s a pretty neutral city,” he said. “I’ve been surprised by the amount of compassion from people.”Turning the focus nationally, Sharpton and others chastised President Donald Trump for failing to comment on police shootings of young black men.On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked about the Clark shooting and demurred, referring to it as a local issue.

Gun! Gun! Gun!': Body Camera Video Shows Sacramento Police Officers Shooting Unarmed Stephon Clark.


Image result for stephon clarke








The two Sacramento police officers who shot Stephon Clark this past Sunday followed the unarmed black man at night into his grandparent's backyard. One officer had his firearm drawn before entering the yard. When they arrived at the back of the house, one officer yelled “Gun! Gun! Gun!” and, seconds later, he and his partner shot at Clark approximately 20 times, according to body-camera video footage released this afternoon by the department. The law-enforcement footage does not indicate what Clark was doing seconds before he was killed, whether he was facing the officers or if he had his back to them. The video also confirms that law enforcement and first responders waited more than 5 minutes to approach Clark after the shooting. When they did, they put him in handcuffs before performing medical treatment. The Sacramento Police Department released the videos of the shooting of Clark this afternoon, less than 72 hours after the incident. Mayor Darrell Steinberg wrote in a statement this evening that he "viewed the videos. 
carefully" and that, "based on the videos alone, I cannot second-guess the split-second decisions of our officers and I’m not going to do that."He added that "we need more information in addition to the video before we can render any final conclusions."Here’s what we observed from the footage which includes video from the body cameras worn by the two officers, video from a Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department helicopter, a 911 call and audio from the law-enforcement scanner. Minutes before the shooting, one officer is running along 29th Street, shining a light on homes, in pursuit of a suspect. He takes deep breaths. At 9:26 p.m., this officer tells his partner “Over here,” then he heads to the side yard entrance of what is presumably Clark’s grandparents' house. Both officers entered the side yard, where a black metal gate is already open. One spots a suspect and immediately yells: “Hey! Show me your hands. Stop! Stop!”.This officer continues down the side yard and into the backyard, which is sparsely lit and features tall green grass and a patio area. Five seconds after yelling, the officer

 wearing Body-Camera 1 draws his firearm, holding it with both hands. When he turns a corner into the backyard, the officer immediately yells “Gun!” then retreats behind the corner of the house. Seconds later, he emerges from behind the corner and yells, “Show me your hands! Gun, gun, gun!” and then instantly fires his weapon. The audio from the officer's camera indicates five distinct gunshots, and then a series of rapid bursts, approximately 15 shots. After the shooting, one of the officers claims that he saw “something in his left hand, it looked like a gun from our perspectives.”The officers waited nearly five minutes until they approached Clark, whom they placed in handcuffs before performing medical treatment. Clark was pronounced dead at the scene by the fire department. The video shows Clark wearing a North Face hooded sweatshirt and black track pants with white stripes along the sides. The body-camera footage begins with the officers approaching a home and knocking on a door, asking to check out the owner’s backyard,  due to reports that a man broke car windows and jumped the property’s fence.

The woman says she needs to put her three dogs in the garage before the officers can enter. The Sacramento County Sheriff's helicopter footage indicates that one officer drew his firearm before entering the grandparents' side yard. The footage shows that the two officers pursued Clark into the backyard, but it does not show what Clark was doing seconds before he was killed. The aerial footage starts with Clark as a white silhouette running through a backyard toward a fence. A deputy inside the helicopter says, "He just broke the window, running south." The footage does not show Clark breaking a window. Clark climbs up onto a box and hops over a fence heading south into the next yard. Clark walks slowly through the backyard toward the house. He moves to the front yard and walks slowly past an SUV in the driveway, then looks around. There are two officers at the top of the screen on 29th Street next to a parked car."All I can tell you is it looks like he's got a hoodie on,” the helicopter deputy says. Clark is standing between the house and the SUV.
He looks like he's peering into the back window of the SUV.“He’s looking into another car that’s in between the fence and the front yard,” says the helicopter deputy.The helicopter circles toward the south, facing north so that the roof of the house is blocking the camera line of sight and the suspect is not visible from this angle. The first officer walks towards the car and the house with his right arm extended, while the second officer sprints across the front yard toward the house and joins the first officer.“It looks like he might be at gunpoint,” the helicopter deputy says. A female officer replies, “Copy one at gunpoint.”The two officers are sprinting past the SUV into the backyard. Both officers have their arms extended. When they both see Clark at the southern end of the backyard, they run back around the corner of the house for cover. The two officers are behind the corner of the north side of the house. The officer closest to the house fires a shot, and the shot appears as a flash of white at the end of the officer’s arms. Both officers begin firing.

Some of the shots are visible, and some of the shots are obscured by a bar along the bottom of the clip. Clark is down on the ground crawling. The officer leaning against the house fires his gun around four to six times, based on flashes from his hands, but the bar along the bottom of the video clip makes it difficult to count exactly how many shots each officer fired.“Shots fired, shots fired,” says the helicopter deputy. The helicopter circles around looking north from the south side of the backyard. Clark’s body is blocked and not visible under a porch overhang. The two officers are still crouched behind the corner of the house. The man who made the initial 911 call, which law-enforcement says came in at 9:13 p.m., reported an individual breaking windows on the 7800 block of 29th Street. The caller also reported that the individual was trying to get into the backyard of a house by jumping a fence. In his call, he said he heard a noise, came outside and witnessed a man in a plain black hooded sweatshirt standing next to his truck. Then, he saw one of his truck windows had been.

smashed open. The caller says he turned to grab a bat, but the man ran away. He says he heard dogs barking in the backyard of a house across the street, so he suspected the individual fled there.The 911responder told the caller that they were sending helicopters and two ground units to the scene. She said helicopters arrive more quickly and can spot the carjacker from above; this way, when the police arrive, they can catch him.

GREATER NOIDA: Seven guards hired by Sharda University from a private agency have been suspended after a video purportedly showed them lifting a student of African origin by the hands and legs and throwing him out of campus.An association of African students told TOI the assaulted student, a Kenyan citizen pursuing BBA at the university, had told them the guards treated him like "a suspect" although he carried his I-card with him every time he left the campus.The seven security personnel who were suspended were marshals Rahul and Prem Raj, and five guards - Jai Hind, Vikas Singh, Om Prakash, Bhola and Chandel. Sharda had hired them from Armour security agency.

A 50-second video shared on a Facebook page titled Africa Sharda on Wednesday purportedly showed the student being shoved and pulled by guards and other security staff of the university as he screamed and tried to resist. Posts accompanying the video accused the varsity management of turning a blind eye to cases of racism on the campus.Registrar Amal Kumar on Thursday described the alleged assault as "an unpleasant incident". "The student was entering the campus with a packet of cigarettes. The guards at gate number 4 stopped him. He lost his cool and things went out of control. The guards tried to hold him and this created the scene," Kumar said.University rules disallow a student from carrying tobacco or narcotic substances inside the campus. Kumar said Sharda University was equally concerned about the welfare of all its students "irrespective of their nationalities". "We have suspended all the security persons involved in this case," he said.

The Association of African Students in India issued a statement on Thursday, demanding strict action against the university management. "We denounce the manhandling of a student by security guards on the campus. We call on the management to take strict action against those involved, and also to create an environment that respects international students," said Samuel T Jack, national president of the association.Zakiyyu Muhammad, secretary-general of the Nigeria Citizen Welfare Association and a senior public prosecutor representing the Nigerian government, said he had spoken to the student after the incident."He denied carrying a cigarette packet to the campus. He said the guards frisked him like a suspect every day despite showing them the I-card. The university should be more careful in recruiting security personnel and staff and be concerned about the way they behave with foreigners. They should avoid hiring people with religious or racial mindsets," said a student pursuing PhD in law at the university.

SHARDA Universit greater Noida. Knowledge park 3
Consider to be a value added and international university is now a place where no international students can have room no matter where you came from... the university has been considère in many ways ignoring facts that most international students are treated inhumanly and are abused in various ways by the management (consider to be human abuse in the campus not by the students but by the management itself ), in the campus and that before was only among students... and now the authority in place give idée to guard to treat an international student like an animal ( maybe because he cam from Africa?)..... how come the management in place instead of protecting students now start abusing them .
With all regret we need ...
For God love African community let see to this
