  One of the shooters appeared to have live-streamed the attacks on Facebook that pur

portedly showed a gunman walking into a mosque and opening fire on the prayers.

  The account of the shooter has now been removed from Facebook, and many other pos

ts that had originally shared the footage have also disappeared from the platform.

  Mia Garlick of Facebook’s New Zealand office said in a statement to American internet media BuzzFeed journa

  Twitter also pulled down the original video and suspended the account that shared it on

  YouTube stated on its Twitter account that it was working vigilantly to suspend any violent footage.

cel Hirscher has won eight straight World Cup overall titles but

  On the men’s circuit, Marcel Hirscher is arguably the greatest ski

racer there has ever been, but he hinted in Andorra his stellar career could be nearly over.

  The Austrian great has sealed an unprecedented eighth World Cup season

overall title as well as a sixth giant slalom season crown and fifth in a row.

  But the 29-year-old was unimpressed with his lackluster sixth place in the final

World Cup giant slalom of the season Saturday.

  ”If I ski further I have a lot of work to do,” he told Eurosport in the finish area in Soldeu.

  ”Before I have to have a clear mind and maybe as well I have to make the

right decision for the future what are my plans for the upcoming season.”

  Hirscher, whose wife Laura gave birth to the couple’s first child last year, has won 67 Wo

rld Cup races to sit third on the all-time list behind American Lindsey Vonn (82)

and Sweden’s Ingemar Stenmark (86).

  The Austrian star, who has also wrapped up a third straight slalom crown and sixth in to

tal, admitted at last month’s World Championships in Sweden that it could

be his last appearance at the biennial event.

Premji accounted for 80% of “large donations” defined as m

  100 million rupees ($1.4 million) — from India’s richest individuals in the 2018 financial year, according to this year’s India P

hilanthropy Report by consulting firm Bain & Company and philanthropy fund Dasra. Private indi

viduals in India donate about 430 billion rupees ($6.2 billion) each year, the report said.

  Wipro was founded by Premji’s father in 1945 as a vegetab

le oil manufacturer, and transitioned to the technology industry in the 1980s under Premji

‘s leadership. It has since grown into one of India’s biggest IT services companies, with more than 160,000 em

ployees worldwide and over 1,200 clients in industries ranging from aerospace to retail.

  Premji’s foundation focuses on supporting education, and ru

ns the Azim Premji University in Bangalore. Its billionaire benefactor’s latest donation coul

d help it open a second university and “scale up significantly,” the organization said.

Harrison’s 19-year-old son, Zin South, heard reports that a gun

  at the mosque. He remembered his mother was at their property waiting to meet a contractor. He texted her. She was safe.

  Then he saw the video broadcast live from a camera fixed to the gunman’s helmet. It

showed the gunman using the family’s driveway as a base to store his loaded weapons.

  ”I couldn’t believe it, that the guy had literally parked in our driveway and walked into the mosque, walked back to our driveway and back into the mosque,” South said.

  When police arrived they helped Harrison get out of the house and over the back fence. “She wa

sn’t allowed to leave (by the front) because there were literally bodies lying in the driveway,” her son said.

  The family says there’s no way that house can be their home now.

  Amid the flowers at the roadblock on Saturday was a homemade sign printed on a piece of A4 paper, titled “#No to hate and terror.”

  ”If New Zealand is like a vessel of milk filled to the very brim, then consider immigrants

as a pinch of sugar. We’ll not bring the vessel to overflowing but make the milk sweeter,” the sign said.

  The author, Deepak Sharma, was standing nearby holding an identical copy. He moved from India to New Zeal

and 10 years ago, and with tears in his eyes told CNN, “This is not the country we chose to immigrate to.”

Mocking O’Rourke’s gestures might seem a frivolous at a time

  of national political angst and with a heavy duty policy debate already under way. But Trump is an expert at trivializing and belittling opponents, to de

tract from the gravity of their arguments and to feed the conservative media machine.

  His diagnosis of Jeb Bush’s “low energy” four years ago established a narrative about the former Florida gove

rnor’s campaign that hinted at a grain of truth. The one-time GOP front-runner could never recover.

  Trump vs. Brexit — and Obama

  At one point in the meeting Tump, said he wasn’t going to “comment on Bre

xit,” but characteristically unable to constrain himself, could barely leave the topic alone.

  At the start of his meeting, Trump welcomed Varadkar, and poin

ting out that his visitor was in a difficult position over Britain’s tortured attempts to comp

lete its withdrawal from the European Union, which could harm Ireland’s peace and prosperity.

young man in Central China designed, constructed and

decorated a unique cement pipe room in 45 days, and made short videos to record the whole process and put them online, attracting many followers.

The man surnamed Long, 28, used to serve in the army and now runs a home “agritainmen

t” inn in Shaoshan, Central China’s Hunan province, the Xiaoxiang Morning Herald reported Wednesday.

Long said he has been a fan of Japanese animation and manga since childhood — especially

Doraemon, in which a pile of cement pipes is a place for Nobita Nobi to play with his friends and a shelter from bullies.

Inspired by the scene, Long has always dreamed of actually living in a concrete tube.

In January, Long started his ambitious construction plan. He used planks to form the tube frame fast

ened by steel bars, and filled it with cement. After the tube was done, he set out on interior design and decoration.
