As many as “300 to 400” bodies line the banks of a road out of the city of Beira in Mozam

bique, according to an eyewitness account, and flood waters have formed an inland

ocean that is visible from outer space.The harrowing scene, described by Zimbabwea

n Graham Taylor, suggests that the human toll of Cyclone Idai is likely to far exceed officiaal estimates. It follows reports fr

om aid agencies on the ground detailing how entire villages and towns have been completely flooded in the wake of last Thursday’

s high-end Category 2 storm.Taylor said the bodies were located on a 6 kilometer (3.7 mile) t

rack of highway, where flood waters had created an inland ocean, submerging entire villages around a “densely populated” s

ugar-cane plantation. The area is a mere fraction of the land in the southeast African nation left flooded after two major rive

rs burst their banks in the days following the storm.The International Federation of the Red Cross and Red

Crescent Societies (IFRC) said Friday that the destruction left by the cyclone is “worse than

we imagined” and warned that the humanitarian needs “will tragically only deepen in the coming weeks.”

  Sony (SNE) and Panasonic (PCRFF) are both moving their European headquarters to the Netherlands.

  Manufacturing comapanies, which need their supply chains to function seamlessly, have also made changes. Nissa

  The biggest risk

  The most dangerous scenario — a disorderly Brexit — could still come to pass.

  EU leaders on Thursday granted the United Kingdom a short delay to Brexit, but the

country could still crash out of the bloc unless UK lawmakers agree a path forward.

The identity of a Shanghai vagrant, who has become an overnight online celebrity after videos of him explaining Chinese classics to passers-by went viral on Chin

ese social media, has been confirmed by his employer, the auditing office of Shanghai’s Xuhui district government.

The office said the vagrant called Shen Wei became one of its employees in 1986 but

has been on sick leave since 1993, during which he has been paid with a basic salary.

For the past seven years, Shen, usually in rags and tangled long hair, has lived near the metro st

ation of Yanggao South Station and collected garbage every day. He began to get online attention over the past few

days when videos taken by passers-by, and then online broadcasters, show his eloquence, resourceful knowledge of Chinese classics and “wor

ds of wisdom” as he advises onlookers to spend more time on reading rather than taking videos of him.

He spends most of his spare time reading books, mostly Chinese classics which he has bought wit

h the money he earns from garbage collecting. He refuses to receive help and told the Red Star News reporter that he has around 10

0,000 yuan ($14,991) in his bank account. The money comes from his 2,000 yuan monthly salary and his father’s savings.

Use of China’s mobile payment services has skyrocketed over the past five years, with total transactions covered reaching 277.39 trillion yua

n ($41.51 trillion) in 2018 — a more than 27-fold increase from five years ago, according to the central bank.

A total of 60.53 billion mobile payment transactions were conducted last year, as a repor

t released by the People’s Bank of China Monday shows, while the figure was only 1.67 billion back in 2013.

From around 2013, with online payments dominant and mobile payments only nas

cent, to 2018, which saw mobile payments outpacing the domestic market, it is easy to observe a mo

bilization trend in payment structures, Xue Hongyan with the Suning Institute of Finance told Securities Daily.

The number of China’s online payment deals has jumped from 23.67 billion in 2013 to 2018’s 57.01 billion, and trans

action value more than doubled to 2,126.3 trillion yuan in 2018 from 1,060.78 trillion yuan five years earlier.

The temperature inside the smart cattery is maintained at 27 degrees, at which cats feel most comfortable and relaxed.

It also has a ventilation system that monitors the air inside in real time.

Wan said stray cats in the neighborhood are more nervous at first and just wander aro

und curiously. After one brave mongrel made the first visit, others followed.

Stray cats are often emotionally sensitive, so the door will not close the minute a cat enters. The anima

  cancer of race hate than guns. It is an evil that has been with us for long, but it seems the cancer is now metastatic-it is spreading. It is be

ing spread by white, right-wing bigots who see conspiracies around every corner, and by religious zealots that are found in most religions.

  In the summer of 2011, an anti-Islamic right-wing extremist killed 77 people in Norway in a planned terrorist attack.

  Recent years have seen a surge in white supremacist violence in the United States. Every terrorist killing in the US last ye

ar was linked to right-wing extremism, according to the New York-based Anti-Defamation League.

  And let us not forget the part social media have played in providing a platform for a

ll racists and terrorists to spread their evil bile and distorted views of the world. Terrorism experts will say Ne

w Zealand was probably a soft target. Most of its police officers are not armed and the threat of terrorism is not high. Bu

t terrorist attacks have also taken place in countries where police officers are heavily armed and security is very tight.

“Investigation further revealed that the fraud was allegedly perpetrat

ed despite the knowledge of senior officials of Punjab National Bank, who did not impl

ement the circulars and caution notices issued by the Reserve Bank of India regarding safeguarding the SWIFT oper

The CBI has raided dozens of offices and seized property worth millions of dollars belonging to Modi, who denies all wrong

doing. He has already been charged by the bureau for criminal conspiracy, fraud and corruption.

the EU can’t easily be predicted.

The difficulty for the EU is that, long or short, any delay comes with complications. And this is where opinions in European capitals start to diverge.

If the UK hasn’t left the EU by May 22, it might have to take part in elections to the European Parli

amentary elections, which begin the following day. Not doing so could be a breach of the UK’s obligations as a

member state.And if that happens, there is a real concern in Brussels that hardline Euroskeptics could stand for elect

ion, in protest at Britain not yet having yet Brexited. They might find a receptive public, and in turn, join interesting new fr

iends in the European Parliament. Sound far fetched? An EU source recently told CNN of worries in Brussels that far-right figures like To

mmy Robinson could end up as Members of the European Parliament, with all the associated attention that brings.

So a short delay is the preferred option of many in Brussels, especially in the Parliament. But that brings its own set of issues. Fi

rst, there is no guarantee that by the end of it, the UK Parliament would have given a thumbs up to May’s deal. In reality, it cou

ld just mean a delay to a no-deal Brexit that almost everyone claims they want to avoid, but still remains the default legal position.
