A baby who suffered dire injuries when he plunged 40ft from a window on to a pavement has made a full recovery. Anwar Nyanzi was 11 months old when he got on a chair while his aunt’s back was turned, hoisted himself on to a window ledge at the block of flats and fell out. With severe brain and spinal injuries, he had what was said to be a one per cent chance of survival. But he somehow began breathing unaided again and was standing up within weeks of the fall. His mum Hawa Rutansingwa said: “It was nothing short of a miracle. He pulled through despite having gone through the stuff of nightmares.”

Around this time, fashion lovers drop everything to go to the world’s fashion capital, New York, Milan, London and Paris to check out the latest trends and exclusive creations from world-renowned designers.It is also at this same time that African cities are planning their own national events to showcase designers and fashion houses- established and upcoming- at fashion weeks. The events, most of which usually take place from October offer an array of opportunities for fashion lovers and designers to buy and present their work respectively. Many have asked how influential these events are considering that fashion is still seen as a struggling industry on the continent and that designers have had to use internationally known platforms and celebrities to showcase their work. Nevertheless, for many designers, fashion events are the stage onto which some of their creative works get noticed even on a small-scale.

Reubenson Chinthuli, an 83-year-old Malawian man on Wednesday, pleaded with Thyolo Third Grade Magistrate Court to divorce his 26-year-old wife over domestic violence.According to reports, Chinthuli told the court that Zone Kwatani, whom he wedded a year ago, has been assaulting him on different occasions.“This woman denies me food. She usually comes late at night without proper explanation. At times when she comes during such late hours, she beats and threatens to kill me with a knife. On one occasion, she pierced a knife on my hand. Please, your worship, save me from this wicked woman. She will kill me,” pleaded Chihuly. However, Khatami denied the claims saying her love for her husband was genuine and that she never for once dreamt of any divorce.“This is my husband and the divorce won’t happen. He should just amend his ways because he is also greedy,” said Khatami.
THOUSANDS of angry Britons have signed a petition to demand that the Royal Family pay for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s Wedding on October 12. Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will tie the knot on October 12, but outraged taxpayers are calling for the "House of Commons to urge the Government to commit no public money to the wedding”.They are also calling on the Government to “publish a report of all costs to taxpayers”.The petition was launched by Republic, a campaign group which works to build support for the abolition of the monarchy. In full, the petition reads: ”This petition calls upon the House of Commons to urge the Government to ensure the highest standards of openness and transparency relating to the funding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's wedding, commit no public funds to the wedding and to publish a report of all costs to taxpayers.”Taxpayers were outraged when it was revealed Princess Eugenie’s wedding will cost the public in the region of £2million, most of which will be spent on security.The Royal Family is expected to pay for the rest of the wedding and the reception costs.When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry married in May, it was reported the wedding cost in excess of £35million. Around £31million of this sum was spent on security. The price of Royal weddings allegedly covers officers' overtime pay, holiday cancellations, and requests for extra patrols. The security at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding was believed to include rooftop snipers, undercover police officers and a “drone destroyer”.A Republic spokesperson said: “Charging one royal wedding to the taxpayer is bad enough, but two costly Royal weddings this year is crossing a line.“Royal spending is out of control, and taxpayers have a right to know how their money is being spent.“If the Royals want to use Eugenie and Jack’s big day to shore up support for the monarchy, they have to cover the costs security and all.“Two-thirds of the public wasn’t interested in Harry and Meghan’s big day, and polls suggest support for the monarchy is flimsy at best, yet the Royals have planned another costly wedding, confident their spending will never be held to account. That has to change."Public services are being cut, and councils are struggling. Why are we footing the wedding bills for the richest family in the country?
Some 50 million accounts in Facebook have been hacked due to a security flaw, revealed Friday, the social network, to the image and finances, already seriously shaken by several controversies, particularly around the protection of personal data. Yet another blunder for the network to 2.2 billion users, which has pushed back the title to Wall Street, which ended down 2.59% to 164,46 dollars.“The fault has been repaired yesterday (Thursday) evening”, said Friday the boss of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg, in a conference call with reporters to provide an update on the situation.“We do not know if these accounts have been used in a malicious way”, he explained, adding that investigations were underway to find out what exactly the hackers had had access to and what they had done. According to Facebook, “nearly 50 million accounts have been affected directly”, that is to say that the attackers were able to access their information on their profiles (names, gender, city…), thanks to the hacking of the feature to “See as”, to look at his own profile as if it was another user. This revelation is yet another ball at the foot of the group and its all powerful CEO, who has already had to face this week the departure surprise of the two officers of its subsidiary, Instagram, against a background of conflict with the house mother. “Sorry” Mark Zuckerberg has explained that the flaw had been discovered on Tuesday: “an attacker has exploited a technical vulnerability to steal access tools allowing them to stay in the account Facebook of about 50 million accounts,” he said. These keys (“tokens” in English) allow you to reconnect automatically to his account. To the best knowledge of Facebook, that “works” with the FBI, the attackers were able to access data contained in the profiles, but without that, they would know what they had done or were doing. Hackers “have been able to use the account as if they were the owners”, noted Guy Rosen, in charge of the “Management product”.“We are sorry”, he added, specifying not to know who was behind the attack. For all that, according to initial findings, the pirates do have, it seems, not used this flaw to make publications on the hacked accounts, or gain access to private messages. The passwords have not been compromised, nor that your credit card information, assured the company. For the time being, Facebook has suspended the feature to “See as”, and has disconnected the 50 million accounts hacked, leading their owners to have to connect again. Facebook has extended this far, “as a precaution”, with 40 million of additional accounts, including the feature “View as” has been used recently. Hacking this “shows once again that we are in an arms race,” with “constant attacks” designed to steal information,” said Mark Zuckerberg. Confidence-hacked It is a new misfortune the severity of which remains to be determined precisely for the first social network in the world, which accumulates controversy and criticism for almost two years. Rohit Chopra, a member of the agency of the regulator in u.s. commerce (FTC),has simply asked for the “answers” via his Twitter account.“Enough is enough”, responded the association for the defence of digital rights Fight for the Future, calling on elected officials to legislate. These last few months especially, the users ‘ confidence has already been seriously shaken by several scandals and Facebook crosses the most serious crisis of its (young) history. The group is criticized to have been used as a platform of political manipulation, especially during the American presidential campaign of 2016, or to have let that slip the data of tens of millions of users without their knowledge to the British firm Cambridge Analytica.Despite the apology repeated by its leader, including before u.s. Congress, the image of Facebook, born in 2004, has emerged largely tarnished. And while the scandals had long spared her finances, the giant has seen a sudden tobacco stock unissued in July after it announced a quarterly revenue and a number of users judged to be disappointing. In addition to these scandals, Facebook had warned there have already been two years that the exponential growth might one day or the other to slow down. After including Yahoo or even Uber which has paid off this week with a heavy fine the theft of massive personal data is not saving the giants of technology.
David Zinn has been creating original artwork in and around Ann Arbor, Michigan since 1987. For more than twenty years, he freelanced for a wide variety of commercial clients while simultaneously sneaking “pointless” art into the world at large. His professional commissions included theatrical posters, business logos, educational cartoons, landfill murals, environmental superheroes, corporate allegories and hand-painted dump trucks, and his less practical creations involved bar coasters, restaurant placemats, cake icing, and snow. Now, thanks to the temptations of a box of sidewalk chalk on an unusually sunny day, Mr Zinn is known all over the world for the art he creates under his feet. David’s temporary street drawings are composed entirely of chalk, charcoal and found objects, and are always improvised on location through a process known as “pareidolic anamorphosis” or “anamorphic pareidolia.” Most of his creatures appear on sidewalks in Michigan, but many have surfaced as far away as subway platforms in Manhattan, village squares in Sweden and street corners in Taiwan. He has achieved global notoriety through sharing on the pages of Facebook, Instagram, Huffington Post, Graffiti Art Magazine, Bored Panda, Central China Television, Street Art Utopia, and Archie McPhee’s Endless Geyser of Awesome. His most frequent characters are Sluggo (a bright green monster with stalk eyes and irreverent habits) and Philomena (a phlegmatic flying pig), but the diversity of Mr Zinn’s menagerie seems to be limited only by the size of the sidewalk and the spirit of the day.
