Residents in Beira, the city worst-hit by the disaster told A

  many victims were injured by the flying metal sheets from the roofs of some houses in the area.

  ”Flying sheets of metal decapitated people. People are very bad here, some are in hospital… we don’t have any help h

ere… it’s getting bad, we’re eating badly, we’re sleeping badly and we don’t have homes,” Rajino Paulino said.

  Layla George, another victim said she was sleeping on Thursday

night when the roof of her house was blown away by powerful winds caused by the cyclone.

  ”I was inside my house, I was sleeping and I had set the bed for my daughter to sle

ep underneath… suddenly the roof flew away. I had locked the door and I lost the keys. We started crying for help

but there was no help because it was the middle of the night and there was a lot of wind,” George told AFP.

  They said they have lost their houses and they have no place to stay.

This may sound catastrophic, but images being sharedf Decembe

  ’s fireball are actually quite poetic in scale. This atomic, otherworldly force appears as a simple red blip above the clouds.

  Some colour views of the #meteor that flew over the North Pacific in December 2018, taken by Japan’s #Himawari satellite.

  The meteor is really clear here – bright orange fireball against the blue + white background!

  But you likely didn’t know about it until now, because scientists only just noticed it.

That’s because the area where the fireball exploded, over the Bering Sea, is extremely remote.

  NASA’s Planetary Defense Officer Lindley Johnson told the BBC s

uch a powerful meteor event only happens a few times every 100 years. (As a side no

te, “Planetary Defense Officer” is probably as close to a real-life “Avengers” title as you’re gonna get.)

  CNN has reached out to NASA for additional comment.

  In case you’re not uneasy enough about the reality that flaming extraterr

estrial objects are continuously pelting our fragile planet, they do so with alarming regularity.

  NASA keeps track of most of the notable fireballs and bolides (a similar astronomical term) that reach Earth. So far in

2019, there have already been five notable fireball events. Don’t worry, though! Most are super tiny.

  And if the big one ever comes along to make dinosaurs of us all, NASA’s Planetary Defense Office has our backs.

Still, they are just the tip of the cat economy iceberg. Medi

care, theme parks, pet boarding services are expanding the sector.

The Spring Festival holiday in February was a peak period for such services as more pet ow

ners tended to make use of luxury pet hotels as ordinary boarding kennels were overbooked.

Beijing-based Liu Ronghuan, 35, a college teacher, said she was quite satisfied with the pet hotel she chose for her cat.

It offered fancy services like massages, beauty salons, and pet portrait photos. The s

even-day stay cost Liu about 5,000 yuan, almost the same price as a three-star hotel room.

“Compared with the price, I cared more about whe

ther my cat was having an enjoyable time during the family reunion time,” Liu said.

More than 41 percent of children and teenagers who sleep

too little use electronic devices such as computer tablets and mobile phones, the survey fou

nd, and youths whose parents use smartphones in front of them are more likely to have less sleep.

Other factors, such as noise and light pollution, contributed to the problem, the report said.

The survey also indicated that good sleep results in higher efficiency in study. Students who sleep longer generally fini

sh homework in two and three hours per day, while those who sleep less require four to six hours.

Gao Xuemei, vice-president of the society, said studies have shown that decreasing sle

eping time for children and teenagers has been a global trend in the past 10 years, but the problem appears to be

worse in East Asia, including China, largely due to a heavier load of school homework.

  Earlier on Saturday, Ardern said the country’s gun law would be changed.

  She spoke to the public at 4:00 pm local time. She said: “This is one of New Zealand’s darkest days. My thoughts are with Christchurch.”

  ”It is an unprecedented violence in New Zealand. There is no place for such extreme violence in New Zealand.”

  ”Our gun law will be changed,” said Ardern, noting that the killers had a legitimate gun license.

  Five guns were discovered, two of which were semi-automatic guns, she said.

  Other weapons and firearms were also retrieved by the police after the attacks on Friday.

  Police Commissioner Mike Bush told another press conference that his top priority wa

s on public safety across New Zealand and was supporting the victims and staff involved.

  ”The investigation into the intelligence failures is also a priority,” Bush said.

  The police chief was joined by representatives from the agencies working on t

he ground — Victim’s Support, City Council, Civil Defence, Fire and Emergency and the Defence Force.

  Bush acknowledged the bravery of the public, police officers and emergency responders.

  He said the arrest took 36 minutes from the first emergency call.

China offers tax relief to overseas talent working in Greater

  Based on the individual income tax differentials between the Chinese mainland and

Hong Kong, overseas high-end talent and professionals in short supply that work in the Greater Bay Area will g

et subsidies from Guangdong province and Shenzhen municipality to offset the differentials, according to the MOF.

  The subsidies will be exempt from paying individual income tax.

  The policy, effective from January 2019 to the end of 2023, applies to nine cities in Guangdo

ng — Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai, Foshan, Huizhou, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Jiangmen and Zhaoqing, the ministry said.

  It said the move aimed to encourage the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

  Consisting of the Hong Kong and Macao special administrative regions and the nine cities in

Guangdong, the area covers 56,000 square km. It had a combined population of about 70 million at the end of 2017.

The rules, coming into effect on Jan 1, 2019, also stipulate

that a stay of less than 24 hours on the mainland will not be counted as a day, and the count started from Jan. 1 this year.

The adjustment marked more generous tax exemptions on overseas-sourced incomes of foreigne

rs and non-mainland citizens working in the mainland. The move will attract more foreign investm

ent and overseas talent to work in the mainland, the STA said in a statement on its website.

Previously, the exemption was for tax residents who have lived on the mainland for less than five years.A house collapse triggered by a lan

dslide in North China’s Shanxi province has caused 10 deaths and left another 10 missing, local authorities said Sunday.

Mikaela Shiffrin extends record run as Marcel Hirscher hints

  She’s ski racing’s undoubted new queen, but Mikaela Shiffrin finished the

slalom season in regal fashion with victory in the final race in Andorra.

  The 24-year-old clinched her 16th win of a record-breaking season

Saturday to take her tally to 59 World Cup titles overall.

  The victory was also her 40th slalom win to equal the record of Swedish great

Ingemar Stenmark, who heads the all-time list with 86 World Cup wins.

  Overall champion Shiffrin, who topped the slalom standings from Slovakia’s P

etra Vlhova and Swiss Wendy Holdener,

is hot favorite to clinch the giant slalom crystal globe Sunday.

  The American has a 97-point lead over Vlhova, with 100 points available to the winner in Andorra.

  Shiffrin, who passed Vreni Schneider’s mark of 14 wins in a season

earlier this month, could become the first skier — mal

e or female — to win the World Cup title in overall, slalom, giant slalom and the

faster super-G discipline in the same season.

  She secured a third straight World Cup overall crown earlier this season and first super-G c

rystal globe to add to a fourth consecutive slalom world title in Sweden last month. She also won super-G gold in Are.

We have to stop this hate and start seeing Muslims as human

  When I woke up Friday morning to the news of the massacre at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, I felt sick. But sad

ly, not entirely surprised. I had been dreading this kind of violence happening, although I would have never imag

ined this kind of scale — 49 Muslim men, women and children killed in cold blood with such clinical, methodical precision and filmed for social media.

  Islamophobia is on the rise and has been for some time. Muslims have been demonize

d, dehumanized and scapegoated on an industrial scale by society since 9/11.

  No other group has been punished for the sins of the father in such a systematic and accepted way. Politicians, commen

tators, influencers and the media on the right have waged a war against Muslims that has become normalized.

  The most powerful man on the planet, President Donald Trump, has sought to ban them fro

m entering the United States. British prime minister hopeful and former Foreign Secretary Bori

s Johnson made “jokes” insulting Muslim women, saying they looked like letter boxes. After those comments, Tell Mam

a, an organization that records Muslim hate incidents, reported that attacks on Muslim women went up.

  They often take the form of pulling off a woman’s headscarf, espe

cially when she’s taking her children to and from school. Imagine what that does to a young

frightened and confused Muslim child? We have respected high-profile commentators who say that Islam

ophobia doesn’t exist and imply that “they” have brought it on themselves because of terrorism.

Ahmad Khan said he watched as a man was shot dead in his

  A total of 49 people were killed in the mosque attacks on Friday. The massacre has stunned residents, not just because it happen

ed there but also because it was planned to show the world that even the most peaceful places are not immune to terror.

  Australian citizen Brenton Tarrant, 28, has been charged with one count of murder. Two other peo

ple remain in police custody. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described it as “one of New Zealand’s darkest days.”

  Khan wasn’t the only member of his family touched by the shootings. A few blocks away

, at the Al Noor mosque, Khan’s uncle is believed to be one of 41 people gunned down there while praying.

  On Saturday, families waited patiently as officials worked to identify bodies. Yet while confirmation will bring some closure, questio

ns will linger as to how such a horrifying event can happen in a country many consider safe.

  ”We felt it was such a safe city, such a safe country,” a 30-year-

old construction project manager, who did not want to be named, told CNN. “The hatred has spread everywhere.”
