  Cyclone Idai made landfall in Mozambique on midnight local time on

Thursday, March 14, with 175 kph (109 mph) winds,

  It wasn’t the strongest storm to have hit Mozambique, but the region had

recently been deluged by heavy rains. After lingering off the coast for days, gatherin

g strength, Idai finally dumped a huge amount of water on Beira — a city of

500,000 people — destroying “90%” of the area, according to aid agencies.

  One week later, thousands of people remain missing across Mozambique,

Malawi, and Zimbabwe. Millions of others acr

oss have been left destitute without food or basic services, according to reports.

he high commissioner for Mozambique in the UK, Filipe Chidumo, said

Wednesday that the country needs “a sustained effort on part of the

Mozambican government as well as the inter

national community” to help rescue stranded people, and provide, food,

sanitation and water for those at risk.

  ”This is a big tragedy of biblical proportions,” he said, adding that major

work will be needed, including the restor

ation of electricity, water and sanitation to prevent the emergence of waterborne

diseases, as well as repairs to public infrastructure.

He said he was asked by his employer to stay home for

mental illness and not go back to work until he recovered.”The utmost goal is like Zhuge Liang (of the Three Kingd

oms), who became a senior official to serve the country,” Shen said. “What comes second is to be like Du Fu (a reno

wned poet in Tang Dynasty known for his patriotism), who always puts the country’s and the people’s interests first.”

“Over the past 26 years, no one from the office has ever asked about me,” Shen told Red

Star News. The auditing office of Xuhui district hasn’t responded to comment as of press time.

Shen also denied online rumors that he graduated from Fudan University and once lost a daughter to a car crash.

“I have never been married, so how could I have a daughter,” he retorted. “Me, a Fudan graduate? Fudan was far out of my league.”

After days of being bombarded with visits and interviews from curious citizens or online streamers, who

are tapping into his sudden popularity for public exposure, Shen said he hopes he can be left alone so as to read more books.

Purrfect! A smart shelter powered by AI keeps stray cats warm in

A constant temperature of 27 degrees, a water bowl that never freezes, a comfy mat, and no dogs allowed.

Those are the amenities for felines in a neighborhood in Beijing’s Sh

unyi district, where stray cats can loll around contentedly all winter, nibbling food and sipp

ing water, safe from the weather and provided with love through an artificial intelligence platform. It is purrfection.

Wan Xi, an engineer at Baidu Brain-the open AI platform of Baidu-had the idea of build

ing a smart shelter for strays when he found a kitten huddled on his car tire in the winter of 2017.

Winter is rough for stray animals, as they require extra calories to stay warm. Only around 40 perc

ent of stray cats find enough food and shelter to make it through the harsh temperatures.

Although volunteers offer water, food and even heating pads to stray animals, Beijing’s freezin

g winters can turn a bowl of water into ice before a cat can drink. Many stray cats don’t live more than two ye

ars. Those that are not neutered or spayed face more health problems and spawn more homeless cats.

Wan said the facial recognition system was developed

on Baidu’s EasyDL platform, a no-code tool that helps users build customized mac

hine learning models. The system was “trained” with thousands of images of cat faces.

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

l will have time to get used to the cattery without being jittery. Seven or eight cats come to rest in the shelter every day.

The development of artificial intelligence is helping Beijing’s dogs, too. At the suggestion of the local government, AI sta

rtup Megvii developed a dog facial recognition system to help reunite owners with lost pets.

Just as humans can be identified by their unique fingerprints, dogs can be identified by their distinctive noses.

Xie Yinan, vice-president of Megvii, said the company has built a dog nose-print database with 1 million images to train the

machine-learning model, and the system is expected to help improve the stray dog problem in the city.

It is estimated that the population of stray animals in Beijing surpassed 1 million back in 2005. Homeless animals lead

to public health problems, but poisoning and shooting them has sparked debate about humane animal control methods.

Everyone has their own way to communicate with the wor

ld, said Wan. “I believe that technology can make the world a warmer and better place.”

Taking into account the Trial Chamber’s conclusions reflec

ting the magnitude of Karadzic’s crimes, the Appeals Chamber is in agreement with the Prosec

ution’s position and considers that the 40‐year sentence inadequately reflects the extraordinary gra

vity of Karadžić’s crimes as well as his central and instrumental participation in four joint criminal enterprises,” said the judge.

“Given the above, the Appeals Chamber considers that the sentence of 40 years imposed by

the Trial Chamber underestimates the extraordinary gravity of Karadzic’s responsibility and his inte

gral participation in ‘the most egregious of crimes’ that were committed throughout the entire period of the con

flict in Bosnia and Herzegovina and were noted for their ‘sheer scale’ and ‘systematic cruelty,'” added Joensen.

The now 73-year-old Karadzic led the breakaway Serbian entity of Republic of Srpska, located w

ithin Bosnia, during the Balkan wars of the 1990s that were initiated by the breakup of former Yugoslavia.

A Syrian refugee and his son are first victims to be buried in Chri

Christchurch, New Zealand (CNN)Zaid Mustafa should have been at school on Wednesday.

Instead, he was being pushed in a wheelchair to the graves of his father and brother,

surrounded by mourning strangers in a country he had only recently made home.

The 13-year-old was shot in the leg last Friday when a gunman opened fire on worshipers at two mosques in the New Zeala

nd city of Christchurch, killing 50 people and shocking a nation that thought it could never happen there.

The Mustafas didn’t think it could happen there, either.Zaid Mustafa, 13, whose father and brother were killed in the Chri

stchurch terrorist attack, attends a funeral at Memorial Park Cemetery on March 20, 2019 in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Khaled, 44, and Hamza, 15, were at Al Noor Mosque on Deans Ave

nue when they were gunned down, leaving behind Zaid, his mother, Salwa, and younger sister, Zaina.

But Bercow ruled that, according to parliamentary proc

  edure, the government could not repeatedly put a motion before lawmakers if it had been previously rejected in the same session.

  May’s deal suffered a second, crushing defeat last week when it was rejected by 149 votes.

  ”What the government cannot legitimately do is resubmit to the House the same pr

oposition — or substantially the same proposition — as that of last week, which was

rejected by 149 votes,” Bercow said in an unannounced statement on Monday.

  Third time lucky for Theresa May’s Brexit vote?

  Bercow said that, in his view, the first two motions on May’s Brexit deal were sufficiently different not to have broken parliamentary convention.

  The speaker did not set out what tests the government would have to meet if it was to succ

essfully submit its deal for a third vote, saying only it would have to be “fundamentally different.”

  In response, a Downing Street spokesperson said, “We note the speaker’s statement. This is a statement that requires proper consideration.”

This progressive reputation — Ardern has also supporte

  and called for cannabis decriminalization — made i

t all the more shocking when the country was the subject of a far-right terrorist attack.

  ”I’ve said many times that we are a nation of 200 ethnicities, 160 languages,” Ardern s

aid Tuesday. “We open our doors to others and say welcome. The only thing that must change after the e

vents of Friday is that this same door must close on all of those who espouse hate and fear.”

  CNN’s James Griffiths contributed reporting from Hong

Kong.The bodies of at least six victims of the Christchurch attack were returned to families Tuesday and

another 32 people remain in hospital after a 28-year-old Australian gunman opened fire at two mosques last week.

  New Zealand Police told CNN in a statement that they were wo

rking with families to return their loved ones’ bodies after a coroner had identified 12 victims.
