Former CNN-News18 Journalist Dies in New York Apartment Fire

Posted By: Anita Mamgai Posted On: Feb 25, 2024

A 27-year-old Indian national tragically died in a New York apartment fire on Friday. The Indian Mission in New York expressed condolences following Fazil Khan's tragic death in Harlem. He was later recognised as a former CNN-News18 journalist.

“Saddened to learn about the death of 27-year-old Indian national Mr. Fazil Khan in an unfortunate fire incident in an apartment building in Harlem, NY, the Indian Mission in New York said in a post on X.

He was a graduate of the Columbia Journalism School and served as a data journalist at The Hechinger Report, at Teachers College at Columbia University.

“As a data reporter at The Hechinger Report, I am responsible for gathering and analyzing education data and collaborating with other reporters to expose inequality and examine innovation in education. I am a 2021 graduate of the data journalism program at Columbia Journalism School where I was also chosen as a post-graduate fellow for the school's Global Migration Project,” Fazil's LinkedIn bio read.

A pass out of the Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC), Fazil began as a copyeditor at Business Standard. He also worked at CNN News18 in New Delhi before he moved to New York. “I am a 2021 graduate of the data journalism program at Columbia Journalism School where I was also chosen as a post-graduate fellow for the school's Global Migration Project. My career began as a copyeditor at Business Standard, one of India's leading business dailies, in 2018 and I was working as a correspondent at CNN-News18 in Delhi, India before I moved to New York in 2020 for my graduate degree at Columbia,” according to his LinkedIn.

The US outlet, where the Indian journalist worked, condoled his death in a post on X. “We learned Saturday that The Hechinger Report's data reporter Fazil Khan died in a fire in the New York City building where he lived. We are devastated by the loss of such a great colleague and wonderful person, and our hearts go out to his family. He will be dearly missed,” The Hechinger Report said.

The Friday fire, in which Fazil died, began just after 2 pm on the third floor of a six-story building in Harlem. New York Police Department video shows firefighters being lowered by ropes from the roof to rescue people trapped on the building's upper floors.

“Our members attach themselves to a rope and then another member goes onto the rope and goes off the side of the building, goes down to the window and grabs the person,” FDNY Chief of Operations John Hodgens explained at a news conference Friday. “This happened three times at this fire.” The city has seen hundreds of fires linked to the lithium-ion batteries that power electric bikes and scooters in the last few years. The Fire Department has repeatedly issued warnings and safety tips.

Hodgens said an apartment door of the burning apartment was left open, intensifying the fire and hampering efforts to extinguish it. “If you could, imagine flames coming out that door and blocking off the stairwell,” he said. “Normally we go directly up to the floor above the fire, but we were even unable to get past those flames.”

I’m a Woman of My Word

Posted By: Pawan George Posted On: Feb 25, 2024

Indian-American Republican Presidential candidate Nikki Haley has said that she will continue to fight Donald Trump even after she was easily defeated by the former US President in South Carolina's Republican contest on Saturday.

With this win, Trump extended his winning streak as he marches toward a third consecutive presidential nomination and a rematch with Democratic President Joe Biden in the upcoming race to the White House.

“I'm a woman of my word. I'm not giving up this fight when a majority of Americans disapprove of both Trump and Biden. In the next 10 days, 21 states and territories will speak. They have the right to a real choice, not a Soviet-style election with only one candidate. And I have a duty to give them that choice,” Haley said in a post on X.

The former US president had been widely favored to win the Southern state, with one opinion poll after another showing him holding a sizable lead despite his litany of criminal charges and Haley's status as a native of South Carolina who won two terms as governor. “I have never seen the Republican party so unified as it is right now,” Trump told supporters in Columbia, the state capital, just minutes after the polls closed at 7 pm. He did not mention Haley once in about 30 minutes of remarks.

The lopsided outcome will bolster calls from Trump's allies that Haley, Trump's last remaining challenger, should drop out of the race. Trump has dominated all five contests thus far – in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, the U.S. Virgin Islands and now Haley's home state – leaving her with virtually no path to the Republican nomination. Trump was leading 59.7% to 39.7% with about half of the expected vote tallied, according to Edison.

Haley, who served as UN ambassador under Trump, said once again on Saturday that she will campaign through at least “Super Tuesday” on March 5, when Republicans in 15 states and one U.S. territory will cast ballots. “We need to beat Joe Biden in November,” she told supporters in Charleston, South Carolina, after Saturday's election was called in Trump's favor. “I don't believe Donald Trump can beat Joe Biden.”

She argued that her vote share, while less than 50%, showed large numbers of Republicans were still uneasy about Trump. Haley notably sharpened her attacks on Trump in recent days, questioning his mental acuity and warning voters that he would lose November's general election. However, there is little evidence that Republican voters are interested in any standard-bearer except Trump.

Ind vs Pak match over-subscribed by 200 times for tickets

The organisers of the T20 World Cup games happening in June in the United States have noticed a massive demand for tickets. The India vs Pakistan match in New York is especially popular, with 200 times more people wanting tickets than available.

Even though the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium on Long Island, which can hold 34,000 people, isn't finished yet, tickets are sold out for the June 9 cricket match. The US and the West Indies are co-hosting the sporting event.

For the first time, an international cricket tournament will be held in the United States. There will be 16 games in the US, including matches in Lauderhill, South Florida and near Dallas at Grand Prairie Stadium.

"We had amazing ticket interest. The ballot process showed there's a really big demand," T20 World Cup USA, Inc. chief executive Brett Jones told AFP.

"India-Pakistan is obviously a game that at every World Cup carries great interest. I think it's really pleasing to see those two countries come to the USA," he added.

India and Pakistan will play their group matches in the USA, attracting large audiences from people of their countries living there. Organisers want to “convert" Americans but realise many immigrants already like it and plan to cater to those fans.

Cricket vs baseball

"I think, number one, we want to celebrate those that are already fanatical lovers of cricket. They deserve to see the best players in the world come into their backyard and have that chance," said Jones.

"So, number one, we want to make sure that happens and they get to feel like they're close to a game they love. Number two, I think it's about spiking curiosity in the game," he said.

Americans have always preferred baseball to cricket. But, the game, especially the T20 format, will get a big platform in the US. It will also be a part of the Los Angeles Olympics in four years.

US Imposes Sanctions on Three Russian Officials Over Putin Foe Navalny's Death Updated 7 minutes ago

Posted By: Preeti Dabar Posted On: Feb 23, 2024

The United States is imposing sanctions on three Russian government officials over the death in custody of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, the Treasury Department said Friday, a week after Russia's most well-known opposition politician died in an Arctic penal colony.

Navalny's sudden death prompted hundreds of Russians across the country to stream to impromptu memorials with flowers and candles for President Vladimir Putin's fiercest foe. The Treasury Department today said that three officials would be designated by the State Department.

“This solemn anniversary and Aleksey Navalny's death in Russian custody are stark and tragic reminders of Putin's brazen disregard for human life, from Ukrainians suffering the costs of his unprovoked war to people across Russia who dare to expose the corrupt abuses that fuel his regime,” said US Secretary of the Treasury Janet L Yellen in a statement.

Navalny's mother said Thursday that she has seen her son's body and that she is resisting heavy pressure to agree to a secret burial away from the public eye. Lyudmila Navalnaya said investigators allowed her to see her son's body in the city morgue. She said she repeated her demand to have Navalny's body returned to her and protested what she described as authorities trying to force her to agree to a secret burial.

“They are blackmailing me. They are setting conditions where, when and how my son should be buried,” she said Thursday in a video statement from the Arctic city of Salekhard. “They want it to do it secretly without a mourning ceremony.” Navalny's spokesman, Kira Yarmysh, said on X, that his mother was also shown a medical certificate stating that the 47-year-old politician died of “natural causes.” Yarmysh didn't specify what those were.

On Friday, cultural icons including Nobel Prize-winning journalist Dmitry Muratov and ballet star Mikhail Baryshnikov released videos calling on Russian authorities to return the body of Navalny to his family. Posting on social media, prominent Russians directly appealed to President Vladimir Putin, demanding that he return Navalny's body to his family. “Just give Lyudmila her son,” Muratov, the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize said, adding, “It's awkward to talk about this in a country that still considers itself Christian.”

Shubman Gill mentions MS Dhoni as Rohit Sharma team reach Ranchi

Posted By: Vanshika Pathak Posted On: Feb 22, 2024
India vs England 4th Test: India's Shubman Gill addresses a press conference ahead of the fourth Test cricket match between India and England, at the JSCA International Stadium Complex, in Ranchi (Mint/Agencies)

India vs England 4th Test: India's rising star Shubman Gill has played some crucial knocks in the ongoing 5-match Test series against England. The batter slammed a wonderful century in the 2nd Test to lead India to a 106-victory against England and he was about to repeat the ton in the third Test before getting dismissed in a run-out. Ahead of the 4th Test at Ranchi, Shubman Gill mentioned legendary cricketer MS Dhoni and said the nation misses him.

“The whole of India misses Mahi bhai a lot. It doesn't matter where you play, in Ranchi or anywhere else," Shubman Gill said while addressing questions before the fourth Test match against England at JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi.

The remark drew immediate appreciation from social media as cricket fans are hoping to see MS Dhoni for the last time in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. Under his leadership, Indian cricket touched the epitome of success as they won almost every ICC trophy including the ICC World Cup 2011.

While speaking on his performance, Shubman Gill said the expectations of people don't make much difference to him, but he was a bit disappointed with his own expectations. "It is a bit tough (living up to his own expectations). When people from outside talk about all those things, it does not make much difference to me. But the expectations that I kept on myself made me a bit disappointed," Shubman Gill said.

India vs England: Ben Stokes clueless about Ranchi pitch

Ahead of the beginning of the 4th Test from Friday, England skipper Ben Stokes seemed clueless about the pitch of Ranchi and said he had never seen something like that. "It looked interesting, didn't it? I don't know. I can't say much. I don't know, I've never seen something like that before so I have got no idea," Ben Stokes said.

The pitch of JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi offers more turn to the spinners and might provide an edge to the bowlers. The England cricket team is concerned about the unpredictable nature of the pitch while the Rohit Sharma-led squad may play cautiously against inexperienced England spinners, who will get a turn advantage from the pitch.

Australian Bishop Charged With Sex Crimes Against Children Published 1 hour ago

Posted By: Vishal Maurya Posted On: Feb 22, 2024

A retired Roman Catholic bishop appeared in court in remote Western Australia on Thursday on charges of sexual offences against children, including two counts of rape. The charges against Christopher Saunders were presented on Thursday morning in Broome Magistrates Court, said a court spokesperson, who declined to say whether Saunders had entered a plea.

Western Australia police said Child Abuse Squad detectives charged a 74-year-old Broome man, whom it did not name, with 19 offences, including two of sexual penetration without consent, 14 of unlawful and indecent assault and three of a person in authority indecently dealing with a child. Footage from TV network Seven showed Saunders being led away by police after his arrest on Wednesday. Police said the man was refused bail.

Saunders, emeritus bishop of Broome, a diocese bigger than Texas in northwest Australia, was not reachable for comment. He has previously denied wrongdoing. It was not immediately whether clear Saunders has a lawyer. He was ordained a priest in 1976, becoming a bishop in 1995, according to the Catholic News Agency.

Saunders stood down in 2020 after the allegations emerged. A police investigation at the time found insufficient evidence to charge him. Pope Francis accepted his resignation in 2021. The Vatican launched its own investigation into Saunders in 2022.

Jaishankar Warns of

Posted By: Jaydatt Chaudhary Posted On: Feb 21, 2024

External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has warned about the “fragility” of existing connectivity channels and vouched for establishing alternative trade pathways amid mounting global challenges, including Houthi attacks in the Red Sea amid war in Gaza.

He expressed this concern during his address at the Second CII-India Europe Business and Sustainability Conclave on Tuesday, emphasising the importance of the India-Middle East-Europe Economic Corridor (IMEC). Launched in September 2023, it is a planned economic corridor that aims to bolster economic development by fostering connectivity and economic integration between Asia, the Persian Gulf, and Europe.

“When this understanding (IMEC) was reached in principle last September on the sidelines of the G20, perhaps not all of us were not adequately cognizant of the fragility of the existing connectivity,” Jaishankar said while talking about the issue of connectivity. Without mentioning the ongoing Gaza conflict, the external affairs minister said that “recent events” in the Red Sea and Gulf of Eden have reminded “fragility of connectivity channels.”

Since November, the Houthi rebels in Yemen have repeatedly targeted ships in the Red Sea and surrounding waters over Israel's war targeting Hamas in the Gaza Strip. They have frequently targeted vessels with tenuous or no clear links to Israel, imperiling shipping in a key route for trade among Asia, the Mideast, and Europe. During his address, Jaishankar also referred to the 2021 Suez Canal mishap, which had threatened to create a supply chain crisis. In March 2021, the Suez Canal was blocked for six days by a container ship that had run aground in the canal.

Citing the Red Sea attacks, Jaishankar underscored the importance of creating more connectivity corridors. “The need to create multiple corridors of connectivity, supporting corridors of connectivity, with their own inbuilt resilience, is something, which is vital. It is vital because, on either end of this, we have two big production and consumption centers — Europe and India,” he said. “IMEC is not the only corridor, there are others. There is a longer one, which is being worked through Iran.”

Speaking on the connectivity channels that may have long-term benefits for both India and Europe, Jaishankar also mentioned the Polar route, which he said has the potential to become a different logistical pathway between India and Europe, which will go through the Indo-Pacific. Furthermore, the minister said India would value working with Eupore on the issue of connectivity that is collaborative, transparent, based on vital projects, and doesn't have hidden agendas. “By doing that, we will set before the world how international cooperation for connectivity should work and we hope other countries draw lessons from that model,” he stressed.

New Zealand Parliamentarian Efeso Collins

Posted By: Pawan George Posted On: Feb 21, 2024

New Zealand Prime Minister Christopher Luxon said he was saddened by the news of Collins' sudden death. “I am truly shocked and saddened at the news of Efeso Collins' sudden death. Efeso was a good man, always friendly and kind, and a true champion and advocate for his Samoan and South Auckland communities,” Luxon said in a statement on X.

“Aotearoa (New Zealand) and the Green Party have lost one of the kindest, most dedicated champions of fairness and equality,” Green Party co-leaders James Shaw and Marama Davidson said in a statement.

“Efeso devoted his life to serving and making a difference to the lives of those he met, including his constituents, colleagues, friends, and family. He held the deepest respect of the members of all political parties and communities,” they said. New Zealand's Parliament will sit this afternoon for political party leaders to make brief comments and then it will adjourn until Feb. 27 as a mark of respect.

Collins, who was born in Auckland, New Zealand, and was of Tokelauan and Samoan heritage, served three terms on the Auckland Council. He was elected to parliament as a member of the Green Party in the 2023 election. He held the Samoan ali'i chief title of Fa'anana from the village of Satufia, Satupaitea in Savaii. Collins was married and had two children.

But even today, everytime he picks up the bat, it's magic all over again. Some people are born for certain things, even if they let it go. For Tendulkar, it's batting. A decade has passed since Tendulkar rode off into the sunset, but his genius is such as if nothing has changed. That crouch, the stance, that grimace of his face while facing the bowler… and of course, the shot-making. Tendulkar's still got it.
