  • Kenya Hunts Gunmen in Fatal Hotel Attack Claimed by Al-Qaeda

    Golocal247.com news

    The attack on 14 Riverside Drive in Nairobi began with an explosion targeting three vehicles in the parking lot and then a suicide-bombing in the foyer of a Dusit Hotels & Resorts Co. outlet, police Inspector-General Joseph Boinnet said Tuesday in a televised briefing. Al-Shabaab, an affiliate of al-Qaeda based in neighboring Somalia, said it killed 47 people in the attack, according to Radio Andalus, a broadcaster that supports its insurgency. The group didn’t say how it obtained the figure, but if its involvement was confirmed it would be the Islamists’ first significant assault in Kenya since a raid on a university campus in Garissa county in April 2015 that killed at least 147 people.

  • 'Not the greatest crisis': Trump's EPA pick downplays climate threat

    Trump nominated EPA Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler last week to run the agency permanently, seeking a strong advocate for his pro-fossil fuels agenda - a choice that cheered business interests and drawn scorn from environmentalists. "I would not call it the greatest crisis," Wheeler said at his confirmation hearing when asked if he believed the increasingly urgent warnings from scientists about the threats from global warming. Wheeler's confirmation is expected to sail through the Republican-controlled Senate despite Democratic opposition.

  • Who's behind the egg that broke the Instagram world record?

    Golocal247.com news

    By now, you've heard about the egg, which surpassed a photo of Kylie Jenner's daughter, Stormi, on Sunday as the most-liked post on Instagram.  But who did the egg? Whose dumb but ultimately successful idea was this? > View this post on Instagram > > A post shared by EGG GANG (@world_record_egg) on Jan 4, 2019 at 9:05am PST Here's what we know so far: ## 1\. The egg account holder goes by "Henrietta." Henrietta is, according to a report from BuzzFeed News, a "chicken from the British countryside." ## 2\. The account holder, however, claims to live in London. "I'm an individual living in London," the account holder told The Independent earlier this week. They also revealed that they only have 400 followers on their personal Instagram account. Sources close to Mashable have also independently confirmed that the egg is a man who lives in the London area. ## 3\. The egg's name is Eugene, allegedly. In some interviews, the account holder goes by the name Eugene, bypassing the whole "Henrietta" schtick entirely. ## 4\. The person who did the egg was participating in dry January at the time. Nothing breeds creativity like suddenly not drinking. ## 5\. Fans of the egg are called the "Egg Gang." Sure. ## 6\. The egg account follows 928 accounts and two hashtags. The hashtags are #WSHH -- WorldStarHipHop -- and #FatBoySSE, who is a rapper from New Jersey. > View this post on Instagram > > A post shared by Supreme Patty (@supremepatty) on Jan 14, 2019 at 5:20pm PST ## 7\. Supreme Patty is a suspect. So far, the only public figure to have implied responsibility for the egg is Supreme Patty, an Instagram star who smokes hot sauce and is known for squeezing lemon juice into his own eyes. While Patty didn't claim he did the egg outright, one of his friends did say so in a TMZ interview. (This is, of course, to be taken with a lemon-sized grain of salt.) For what it's worth, we do not think Supreme Patty did the egg. It's more likely that he's just capitalizing on the big meme of the moment. He did get an egg tattoo, though, so kudos on committing to the bit. And the egg does follow him on Instagram. We've reached out to Supreme Patty and will update this post if we hear back. ## 8\. Okay, the egg account says it's not Supreme Patty. In an Instagram story posted on Tuesday, @world_record_egg claimed the TMZ story was bogus. "We're still anonymous. Fake news," they wrote. Image: Instagram So we guess it's not Supreme Patty. Stay tuned for more egg updates. This story is developing ... UPDATE: Jan. 16, 2019, 1:34 p.m. ET This story was updated to include information regarding the egg's Instagram Story as well as the hashtags it follows. UPDATE: Jan. 17, 2019, 10:03 a.m. ET This story was updated to confirm the egg's city of residence. ## WATCH: A teenager crashed their car doing the "Bird Box" challenge

  • McDonald's loses EU trademark for Big Mac after 'David and Goliath' battle with Irish restaurant

    Golocal247.com news

    McDonald's has been stripped of its European Union trademark for the Big Mac hamburger in humiliating defeat after a “David and Goliath” legal battle with Supermac’s, an Irish fast food chain. In a landmark judgment with immediate effect, the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) said McDonald's has failed to prove “genuine use” of the Big Mac trademark as a burger or restaurant. "Never mind David versus Goliath, this unique landmark decision is akin to the Connacht team winning against the All Blacks," said Pat McDonagh, the managing director and founder of Galway based Supermac’s. “This is the end of the McBully”. “Just because McDonald's has deep pockets and we are relatively small in context doesn’t mean we weren’t going to fight our corner," he added. Supermac’s has about 100 restaurant in Ireland and was founded in 1978. It has been locked in a legal battle with McDonald’s since 2015 when it planned to expand into the UK and rest of the EU. The US company objected to Supermac’s applying for an EU-wide trademark, with lawyers sending a 41-page treatise arguing it was too similar to McDonald’s. “Supermac” was Mr McDonagh’s nickname when he played Gaelic Football in his youth. In April 2017, Supermac asked EUIPO to cancel the US fast food giant’s trademark on “Mc” and “Big Mac” and accusing it of “trademark bullying” by registering protected names and storing them up unused to stifle competition. McDonald’s lawyers provided signed affidavits from its executives and examples of adverts and packaging and its wikipedia page to show it sold Big Macs across the EU and deserved the pan-EU trademark. EUIPO said the evidence was “insufficient” in a judgment, which because trademarks can be registered at both EU and national level, will not lead to the Big Mac losing all protection. McDonald’s also have the right to appeal, which they are likely to exercise. This now opens the door for the decision to be made by the European trademark office to allow us to use our SuperMac as a burger across Europe,” said Mr McDonagh. Carissa Kendall-Windless, senior associate at intellectual property law firm EIP, said: “This decision is a significant one, partly because it serves as a warning to multinational companies that they can no longer simply file trademark applications without a genuine intention to use it”.

    At least five people have died in severe rain and snowstorms that blanketed parts of California with at least five feet of snow in the Sierra Nevada mountains this week, besides triggering flooding and mudslides, officials said. Forecasters expect the bitter weather to push eastwards into the Rockies and US Midwest through the weekend, while the California Highway Patrol said rain-slicked highways led to two fatal accidents that killed four people. A family of three, including a one-year-old baby, died in El Dorado County on Tuesday, after their car spun across a rain-soaked freeway to hit another car, the San Francisco Chronicle said.

  • Kenya attack: At least six killed in Nairobi hotel complex terror siege

    Golocal247.com news

    Islamist terrorists detonated explosives and fired automatic weapons as they mounted a deadly attack on a hotel and business complex frequented by Westerners in Nairobi on Tuesday. Six people have been confirmed killed in the attack, while a Kenyan police officer told reporters 15 bodies had been taken to the mortuary. A mortuary worker added that identification papers indicated that 11 were Kenyan, one was American and one was British, while the other two did not have documents on them. Nationalities of the dead remain unconfirmed. Hundreds more remained trapped inside buildings  16 hours after the attack began. Local security forces freed scores of civilians as they fought their way into the grounds of 14 Riverside, a compound housing a hotel, restaurant, bars and office blocks in the city’s Westlands district.  But the reported six gunmen were still in control of parts of the five-star Dusit Hotel, part of a Thai-owned international chain that appeared to be the chief target of the attackers. The Somali militant group al-Shabaab, which has longstanding ties to al-Qaeda, claimed credit for the attack, revisiting the city in which they killed 67 people during an attack on the Westgate shopping mall in 2013. Cars are seen on fire at the scene of explosions and gunshots in Nairobi Credit: REUTERS/Thomas Mukoya Just as at Westgate, barely a mile way, this was a carefully chosen target designed to bring terror to one of the prosperous parts of an increasingly prosperous city and target Westerners and rich Kenyans alike. Several multinational firms, from America’s Colgate Palmolive to the German chemical giant BASF housed their local headquarters at 14 Riverside. Several British firms were also based there, the consultancy groups Control Risks and Adam Smith International among them. From the outset it was clear that this was a highly sophisticated attack. A suicide bomber blew himself up close to the entrance as two vehicles carrying the attackers breached a security barrier, regarded as one of the most efficient in Nairobi, at the entrance to the complex. Some of the attackers, lobbing grenades and firing automatic rifles, reportedly killed several people at the Secret Garden restaurant, a spot popular for business meetings close to the restaurant, before continuing on to the Dusit hotel.  “There was a big bang and then a lot of gunfire, up to 100 shots or more,” said Philip Coulson, a lawyer working in a nearby office block. “Later, I saw people fleeing and others being carried out with looks of pain or anguish on their face.” Terrified office workers in the complex’s five blocks, said to house more than 1,000 employees, hid under desks and barricaded doors. Others, caught in the open, ran frantically for cover.  “Run, run!” one man shouted from behind a low wall as colleagues stumbled on lawns and crawled along the ground in a desperate bid for safety as shots rang out. “Down! Down!” Extremists launched a deadly attack on a luxury hotel in Kenya's capital  Credit: AP Photo/Brian Inganga Kenya’s security forces earned an ignominious reputation during the Westgate attack, after army units were accused of opening fire on their police colleagues, killing the officer in charge and then embarking on a looting spree. But this time, the initial response appeared more professional and coordinated. Army and police units, assisted by emergency crews, were quick to seal off the perimeter and rescue people from the office blocks, at least some of which appeared to be ignored by the attackers. Many were rescued within hours, fleeing under armed guard with their hands in the air before streaming in their scores across a footbridge to the safety of a nearby university campus. Everywhere signs of extreme emotion were visible. Shaking and often weeping, some survivors — mostly Kenyan, but some Westerners too — embraced anxious relatives waiting outside the police cordon. Others sank to the ground and gave thanks to God. Security forces at the scene in Nairobi Credit: AP Photo/Ben Curtis “After the first blast, after we saw the restaurant had been blown up, we ran and hid under tables,” said Elizabeth Maina, an employee at AC Nielsen, an American global research firm housed in the Belgravia building close to the entrance. “There was shooting everywhere. We called and sent messages to the police. After an hour, we saw men in uniforms and plain clothes enter the room. They shouted ‘police, police’ and led us out.” Workers in office blocks, with plenty of hiding places and lockable doors, were always more likely to survive. Those in the hotel, whose foyer opens out onto a restaurant, bar and swimming pool, would have had much less of a chance — as their attackers surely knew. Just how high the death toll could be is unlikely to become clear until the attack is over, although witnesses said they saw at least five bodies and reported body parts strewn on the ground outside the hotel. “There was no time to count the dead but it is true that there are people who have died,” said one police officer involved in the operation. A woman is reunited with her family after her evacuation from DusitD2 compound Credit: YASUYOSHI CHIBA/AFP/Getty Images Kenya has long been in al-Shabaab’s sights, even before it sent troops across the border into Somalia in 2011 in an attempt to root out the militants behind the abductions of Western tourists on the Kenyan coast, Britons among them.  In 1998, an al Qaeda attack, which involved a number of Somalis, on the American embassy in Nairobi killed more than 200 people. The number of attacks soared after 2011.  Westgate aside, 147 students were killed in an attack on a university in the northern town in Garissa in 2015 while scores more had previously died when suspected al Shabaab militants struck at villages on the northern Kenyan coast. Improved intelligence, aided by tactical and training support from Britain, has seen a halt to large-scale attacks since 2015, although often deadly ambushes on Kenyan forces near the Somali border remain frequent. Despite mounting domestic opposition and al-Shabaab attacks on their bases, Kenyan forces remain in Somalia. The attack on 14 Riverside came on the third anniversary of an al-Shabaab attack on a Kenyan military base in the Somali town of El Adde. Kenya has refused to release details of the death toll, but analysts say they believe more than 140 Kenyan soldiers were killed.

  • Plans revealed for a massive atom smasher that dwarfs the Large Hadron Collider

    The famous Large Hadron Collider, an insanely massive particle accelerator that's helped scientists crack some of the most deeply hidden mysteries of the universe, is about to be dwarfed by an atom smasher that's much bigger and more powerful. European physicists have just unveiled their proposal for the construction of a new particle smasher that calls for a 62-mile circular collider costing roughly the equivalent of $10 billion. Plans for the so-called Future Circular Collider were revealed Tuesday in a report by officials associated with the European Organization for Nuclear Research, better known by its acronym of CERN. Among other things, they're proposing that the collection of 23 member nations which currently comprise CERN would likewise oversee this next-generation accelerator. An accelerator, we should note, that would be four times bigger and up to 10 times more powerful than today's Large Hadron Collider, which is part of a particle accelerator facility on the French-Swiss border and which helped scientists in 2012 confirm the existence of the so-called God particle, the Higgs boson. It's a particle that gives mass to electrons and protons, which scientists regard as a kind of building block for the world as part of their so-called Standard Model. That's a body of knowledge describing some of the most basic forces at work in the physical world. Ironically, this highly sought after class of particles can reveal such depth of understanding about the world around us -- but the particles are also so small that it takes insanely massive machines to wrench them loose, in a manner of speaking, enough for scientists to be able to study them. The way the Large Hadron Collider works involves a loop of superconducting magnets that shoot streams of protons at each other fast enough for these key particles to emerge from the impact. And among the questions scientists hope these kinds of machine can answer are things like why gravity is so weak compared to other forces. As if on cue, meanwhile, China has plans to build its own version of one of these machines. According to a report from ScienceAlert, its creation could be operational by the 2030s and present "a head start (on) the multiple collisions needed to amass the enormous bank of statistics necessary for finding flaws in the Standard Model. Japan is also taking a look at building a particle collider." The ScienceAlert report also makes clear that there's no guarantee this new collider in Europe will ever get built. The Large Hadron Collider apparently hasn't produced enough fodder for scientific discoveries yet to satisfy some officials that the need is there and investment is warranted for the development of a new collider.

Walmart has the best-selling NEX weighted blankets on sale for up to $189 off today, bringing the 40 x 60-inch and 60 x 80-inch blankets to $59.99 and $94.99, respectively.  Weighted blankets are notoriously expensive, with the tiny cheap ones usually retailing at $100 minimum. If you've been contemplating making the jump, here's your sign. SEE ALSO: Best online mattresses, ranked: Casper, Nectar, Leesa, and more Before these magical pieces of fabric made it to self care Twitter (with the help of the popular Kickstarter campaign for Gravity Blanket in 2017), weighted blankets were known for aiding therapy patients like veterans with PTSD, people with disabilities like autism, or children with ADD. The blankets are so heavy that they reduce movement and friction, working to prevent things like over-arousal of the nervous system or panic attacks. Whether it's a significant other, roommate, pet, or even your mom, we can all agree that the pressure from someone's physical presence is seriously comforting. This is referred to Deep Touch Pressure Simulation, and NEX's 15-pound blankets mimic that. > Anybody: H- > Me: let me tell you about how my weighted blanket changed my life > > -- Cecil Price "Old So-and-So" Walden (@pricewalden) January 3, 2019 Some people have found that the cozy sensation associated with a weighted blanket could actually help reduce anxiety, depression, insomnia, or can even help you get in the zone to meditate. It's why babies will stop crying once they're swaddled, and why getting a hug when you're sad somehow makes it better. It's all the positive brain chemical stuff that comes with cuddling, minus the possibility of getting ghosted. The only downside? If you thought getting out of a cozy bed on a 30-degree morning was hard now, just wait until you have a 15-pound blanket begging you to stay and snug. Regularly a nauseating $249, you can save $154 on the smaller blanket and get it for $59.99 or save $189 on the bigger blanket and get it for $94.99.

  • Fortnite left players exposed to 'massive invasion of privacy'

    Golocal247.com news

    Children playing Fortnite were exposed to a potential “massive invasion of privacy” thanks to an oversight in the game’s security, researchers have revealed.  The popular shooting game enjoyed by more than 80 million people around the world left users vulnerable to a flaw that if exploited, allowed hackers to steal virtual currency and read private conversations online. The bug was fixed in mid-December, according to researchers who shared their findings with Fortnite's developer, Epic Games. To take control, the researchers sent a message to their victim over social media including a malicious link.  Once clicked, the user’s Fortnite authentication token - code that confirms a user is logged in - could be captured by the attacker without the user entering their username or password.  “Fortnite is one of the most popular games played mainly by kids. These flaws provided the ability for a massive invasion of privacy,” said Oded Vanunu, head of products vulnerability research for Check Point, who found they were able to access target accounts.  Fortnite | Read more It comes as the police’s fraud arm warned that scammers are using the multiplayer Battle Royale-style game to trick young players into handing over their parents’ bank details.  Criminals are increasingly targeting children on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube with adverts claiming to offer free "V-bucks", a currency used to buy extras like character outfits.  After clicking the link, victims can be asked questions about their account, which the perpetrator uses to log in, and steal credit or debit card details that are stored there. Fortnite fever has gripped the nation since it launched in July 2017, with parents growing concerned that their children have become "addicted" to the multiplayer title.  Users could protect themselves in future using  by turning on two-factor authentication which prompts the player to enter a security code sent to their email address upon logging in. Epic Games have been contacted for comment.
