Wayne Jones learned his mother, Celestine Chaney, was one of 10 people killed in a racist massacre in Buffalo last Saturday when he received an emailed photo of her lying on the ground with a gun assault aimed at his head. The killer, Payton Gendron, live-streamed his supermarket shooting on Twitch, and someone had taken a screenshot and sent it to Jones.

Jones always went with his mother to Tops Friendly Market on Jefferson Avenue, he tearfully recalled in an interview with EL PAÍS in Buffalo on Tuesday. On the day of the massacre, a leg injury prevented him from accompanying him. Her Aunt Dee also wept as she recalled how she learned of her sister-in-law’s death. “I received a video that I opened without thinking. Now I can’t sleep at night. I think Twitch and Facebook are also responsible for our pain,” she told Wayne Jones Jr. , Celestine’s grandson, went further: “Seventy-two hours have passed and the video is still circulating, it’s appalling. It appears here and there, on someone [Facebook] wall, or in a random message. This is how the hatred behind my grandmother’s murder spreads. If we weren’t black, this wouldn’t happen.

According to a spokesperson for Twitch, which is owned by Amazon, it took the company just two minutes to remove Gendron’s video from the platform on Saturday. But by the time the video was removed from Twitch, it was already being shared on other networks, such as Reddit and Facebook.

On Wednesday, authorities revealed that the shooter, indoctrinated into white supremacy ideology by those same social networks, had invited a group of users of the Discord messaging system to discuss his macabre plans just half an hour before shooting. get into the car that would take him away. on the more than three-hour drive from his hometown of Conklin in upstate New York to Buffalo. No one in that chat group called the police. The New York Attorney General’s Office said on Wednesday it had launched an investigation into these platforms in connection with the mass shooting in Buffalo. “That an individual could publish detailed plans to commit such an inconsequential act of hate and then broadcast it for the world to see is chilling and unfathomable,” New York Attorney General Letitia James said in a statement. a statement.

Those close to Chaney weren’t the only ones hurt by the horrific footage of the shooting. Other family members of the victims expressed similar grief at an event on Tuesday to remember those killed. The memorial, which took place at a civic center near the grocery store, was attended by US President Joe Biden, who paid special tribute to each of the 10 victims.

Biden defined Chaney as “a brain cancer survivor, practitioner, and bingo lover.” Geraldine Talley, 62, “was a friend to everyone, a devoted mother and grandmother”. Pearl Young, 77, “loved singing, dancing and her family”. Ruth Whitfield, 88, was a “beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother who sang in the church choir”. While Margus Ardie, a 52-year-old school bus assistant, was killed while “going to buy snacks for a weekly movie night with the family”.

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown later spoke to reporters in the still cordoned off area around the supermarket, which four days later is still closed. Brown paid tribute to Aaron Salter, a 55-year-old retired police officer who worked as a guard at the grocery store. He lost his life trying to arrest Gendron, who was outfitted in professional military gear, including a bulletproof vest, and was detained by police before he could go ahead with his plan to kill in d other parts of the neighborhood.

Those close to André Mackniel, 53, are reassured that at least the tragic events have shone the spotlight on their community. Priest Tim Newkirk, who accompanied Mackniel’s brother and niece, hoped “the neighborhood will pull through.” “We will not allow hatred, racism or terrorism to win,” he said. Taniqua Simmons, an anti-racism protester at the security perimeter of Wednesday’s event, was not so optimistic: “Many will think this neighborhood is a dangerous place, and it could become so, but I had never felt fear in my life so far. To overcome this sadness and anxiety, we will need tools that we unfortunately do not have.

Buffalo is a tale of two cities, and that story is best seen from Main Street, which divides the city down the middle: to the east, the population is poor and predominantly black, and to the west, it is wealthier. and white. It is a fracture that is felt on the scale of the city, which imposed itself at the beginning of the 20th century thanks to the steel industry, and was hard hit by the deindustrialization of the 1980s.

The victims of Saturday’s racist massacre are the descendants of those who came to seek their fortunes and settled in the east of the city. The killer chose Tops Friendly Market precisely because it served the area with the highest concentration of black people in New York State. According to local press, Gendron also considered other locations, such as a Walmart in Rochester and a mall in Syracuse.

“We all know each other here,” says Brenda McDuffie, who was director of the Buffalo Urban League, a nonprofit dedicated to helping the city’s black community. “This supermarket is where we saw each other. It’s part of our lives, and it was taken away from us by an individual who didn’t act alone, he had the support of others,” she adds, referring to those who, like the shooter, support the so-called “great replacement” conspiracy theory – a group that includes members of the Republican Party and popular radio and television hosts. This white supremacist theory asserts wrongly that whites are being replaced by non-white immigrants and minority groups as part of a master plan concocted by left-wing elites.

McDuffie says one of his greatest accomplishments during his 20 years as head of the Buffalo Urban League was persuading Tops, a supermarket company that operates in the northeast, that Jefferson Avenue was a safe place to do business. After Saturday’s massacre, no one is convinced.

Relatives of the suspect in the Buffalo mass shooting, which claimed the lives of 10 people, accuse Covid “paranoia and isolation” of being behind the attack.

Family members of suspect Payton Gendron, 18, said The New York Post that he has “probably broken” from the isolation caused by the pandemic. Gendron, the only suspect in the case, showed clear signs of mental instability before going to the Tops Friendly Market and specifically targeting black people with a semi-automatic rifle.

“I have no idea how he got caught up in this. I blame COVID,” said Sandra Komoroff The post office, a 68-year-old cousin of Gendron’s mother. “He was very paranoid about catching COVID, extremely paranoid, to the point that his friends said he would wear the hazmat suit [to school].”

“And then he got COVID just a few weeks ago… He went to family gatherings with a respirator on. He absolutely wasn’t going to get COVID, and then he got COVID. They were vaxxed at the Max. I don’t know if it was a bad case, I just know he caught it,” Komoroff said, adding that Gendron had “acquired in the fear of COVID.”

“That’s the only way to tell,” Komoroff said. “When you’re at home all day on the internet, you miss the human touch. There’s a lot of emotion and a lot of body language that you don’t get. [as] when you see their face.”

Gendron livestreamed the horrific attack from his personal account on the Twitch streaming service.

Regarding his history of violent threats, Gendron threatened to carry out a school shooting at his high school in 2021, which brought him to the attention of the FBI. Family members said The post office that he needed help but “clearly never got it”.

Dave Komoroff, Sandra’s husband, said COVID could have affected “what they call the lizard brain, the part of the brain that controls aggression.”

“I can’t say it’s impossible, but maybe it would happen once in so many millions of times,” he said. The post office.

A formal investigation into the mass shooting in Buffalo was launched on Monday and investigators say it will include finding out why several “red flags” regarding the suspect’s behavior were not addressed by authorities.

Gendron pleaded not guilty to the charge of first degree murder. If found guilty, he will face life without parole.

Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia said prosecutors plan to treat the incident as a hate crime, saying, “The evidence we’ve uncovered so far doesn’t get it wrong, it’s about of an absolute racist hate crime that will be prosecuted as a hate crime,” according to Reuters.

The outlet added that “…in addition to seeking to better understand the motives behind Gendron’s attack, authorities will focus on what could have been done to stop him, as details of Gendron’s troubling behavior the teenager in high school and his online presence began to emerge.”

Records further showed that Gendron spent one day out of a half day at a facility undergoing mental health assessment in June 2021. He was, however, released to the general public without further action. have been taken.

It was also reported that a 180-page manifesto circulating on the Internet, allegedly authored by Gendron, referred to the “replacement theory” in which white people believe they are victims of a population war with people of other skin colors.

STATEN ISLAND, NY — Shireen Abu Akleh, 51, a Palestinian-American, who was shot and killed Wednesday, May 11, while covering an Israeli raid in the West Bank for Al Jazeera, is recalled by members of the family from Staten Island as a “brave” person and someone who inspired many at a vigil in New Jersey on Thursday.

Samir Akleh, a Staten Island resident and a cousin of Abu Akleh, told reporters at NorthJersey.com that “she investigated things” and was “very brave”.

The 51-year-old also had family at her mother’s house in New Jersey, according to The New York Times.

Akleh was among about 250 people gathered at Gould Park in Paterson, NJ, for a vigil on Thursday. The Palestinian American Community Center in Clifton hosted the event, NorthJersey.com reported. Mourners paid their respects to the journalist and a video screen showed some of Abu Akleh’s earlier work.

Samir’s nephew, Robert Akleh, also attended the vigil and told the NJ Publication that he was “proud to know that his cousin was not afraid to speak the truth.”

“Now it’s up to us here in America to really start to stand up, speak up and demand accountability,” he added.

Abu Akleh was covering an Israeli military raid in the Palestinian city of Jenin early Wednesday morning when she was shot in the head, according to multiple media. She wore a helmet and vest, marking her as a member of the press. Al Jazeera news producer Ali Samoudi, who was with Abu Akleh at the time, was shot in the back.

According to witnesses and other journalists present during the raid, Israeli forces fired on them and fired again when they tried to help Abu Akleh.

Israeli officials said Abu Akleh was killed in an exchange of gunfire with Palestinian gunmen. However, witnesses on the spot dispute this assertion.

Al Jazeera accused Israeli security forces of deliberately targeting and killing Abu Akleh, CNN reported.

“Shireen Abu Akleh was not just a journalist who spoke truth to power. He was someone who taught generations about the reality of life as a Palestinian under occupation,” Abire Sabbagh, director of community outreach at the Palestinian American Community Center, told NorthJersey.com.

Israel said it planned a full investigation into the incident. But rights groups argue that the investigation should be independent and that Israeli investigations have rarely resulted in harsh penalties.

FUNERAL HELD IN JERUSALEM

On Friday, thousands of people attended Abu Akleh’s funeral. The mourners were greeted by baton-wielding Israeli police, who could be seen in CNN video charging into the funeral procession.

Al Jazeera footage shows the coffin nearly falling as the pallbearers struggled to hold on, as Israeli police beat them with batons.

The White House commented on the incident on Friday.

“We have all seen these images. They are obviously deeply troubling,” Jen Psaki said in her latest press briefing.

“We believe this is a day that we should all mark, including everyone there, the memory of a remarkable journalist who lost her life,” she added.

Asked about an investigation into Abu Akleh’s death, Psaki said, “We are not currently involved in any of the investigations, but we are working to establish cooperation and are available to provide assistance if needed.”

When asked by reporters if he condemned the Israel Police Force for their actions on Friday, President Joe Biden said:

“I don’t know all the details, but I know it needs to be investigated.”

Kendrick Lamar has been hailed after his new album, ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’, contained a supporting track about transgender members of his own family

Kendrick Lamar’s New Album ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’ Has Become a Hot Talking Point

Rapper Kendrick Lamar has received praise after a song about his transgender family members, which appears on his new album, brought LGBTQ issues to the forefront of hip hop culture.

The 34-year-old musician releases his fifth studio album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, and features a track called Auntie Diaries which deals with past gender transitions made by his uncle and cousin.

The star recently revealed that her elementary school classmates didn’t understand her uncle’s transition, but that didn’t stop their relationship from growing.

Auntie Diaries begins with the line: “My aunt is a man now / I think I’m old enough to understand now.”

He continues, “My aunt is a man now / I watch him and his daughter hold their hands down.”

Focus in the second verse, meanwhile, turns to the 34-year-old’s cousin, as he raps: “My favorite cousin said he was reciprocating / And follows my aunt with the same behavior / Demetrius is Mary-Ann now / He’s more confident to live out his plan now / But the family in disbelief this time.”

The track quickly became a hot topic of discussion on Twitter, with Boston Sports reporter Khari Thompson leading the cheers: “Yo ‘Auntie Diaries’ could be REAL barrier-breaking stuff in hip-hop. Kendrick talks openly about his aunt and cousin’s transition and ‘choosing humanity over religion’.”

Another user commented, “Auntie Diaries is the first major support song for the trans community from a rap artist as great as Kendrick and I can’t express how happy I am.”

A third said: “Auntie Diaries is a song for black people who have encountered anti-LGBT sentiment growing up in black families. When I was 13 my dad asked me if I was gay because I was not disagree with him that all gay people belong in jail or worse.”

The praise continued with: “Auntie Diaries isn’t going to push everyone further left, but for people who relate to Kendrick’s experience, it absolutely will. For those who don’t, it’s a conversation starter. This track introduces something to mainstream hip hop that didn’t exist before.”

However, not all reviews were glowing. Some critics have accused the star of getting it wrong – using a pronoun that doesn’t correctly reflect the gender someone identifies with.







Kendrick Lamar announced a world tour shortly after the release of his new album. He will perform for five nights in the UK in November.

One disgruntled user said: “It’s gonna take me a minute to process a song like Auntie Diaries where dead names and gender errors will be defended as a raw, honest look at shrewd acceptance. This is a song made for that straight people congratulate each other for having the ‘conversation’.”

Another user pointed out Lamar’s apparent misunderstanding, adding, “If you’re supporting Kendrick Lamar after Auntie Diaries (the song name itself is wrong) let me know so I can block you because you you’re so hungry for crumbs that straight people throw at us that you’ve lost your morals.”

Later that day, meanwhile, Lamar, who won the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2018, announced a world tour to promote the new record.

Starting July 19 in Oaklahoma City, it will later perform five UK shows in November (Leeds 3, Newcastle 4, Birmingham 5, London 7 and 8), before finishing in New Zealand in December.

‘foxes grove’ by dua, defying the conventional

Irish studio DUA (Design Urbanism Architecture) has completed “Foxes Grove”, a two-storey building Family house in the suburbs of Dublin. Located in a corner site, the final project is expressed by a wooden structure imitating the shape of the neighboring houses. However, in an attempt to go beyond conventional housing patterns in the area, the design team incorporated the existing perimeter wall into the ground floor plan, while respecting the lines of front and rear construction of the subdivision. Meanwhile, clear geometric openings precisely cut the wooden envelope, letting plenty of daylight into the volume from different directions. all images by Shane Lynam

dynamic interaction with light and shadow

The house is assembled from a wooden frame structure erected in three days. This is reflected externally by the Siberian larch cladding which hovers above the ground and rises and falls around the perimeter of the house, as it comes into contact with the boundary walls.

In addition, with its strategically positioned strips, the coating filters the southern light inside. In the early morning, natural light penetrates and animates the wooden surfaces, allowing a dance of shadows that changes during the day. Thus, with ‘Foxes Grove’, the architects (see more here) sought to provide occupants with a sense of surprise and discovery; an experience that changes day by day. DUA's 'foxes grove' house in Dublin offers cozy places for family members

fun places for young and old

Regarding the interior, the design team sought to form comfortable spaces with different functions while allowing visual communication between them. Thus, they subtly divided the ground level by sinking the dining room. The highlight of the interior is an informal lounging area made of a netting that hovers in the triple-height empty space. This spot for young and old adds a playful touch to the interior. There, members can interact, reflect, and contemplate the passing clouds.

Inside, natural wood and concrete define the material palette. The wood finish welcomes the inhabitants in a warm and enveloping environment. A plywood wall crosses the ground floor concealing the utilitarian spaces, such as the staircase, the bathroom, the storage room and the kitchen units. On the other hand, a raw concrete floor creates a visual contrast with the wooden accents, letting the beautiful textures coexist harmoniously. Going up, one encounters the two sleeping areas separated by a roof window and a triple-height space lined with plywood. So plenty of warm daylight hits the interior below while creating a visual interaction between the different floors.

  • One of Rodney King’s daughters was reported missing last week, police told Insider.

  • Family members said Tristian King was last seen in Santa Monica, California.

  • The LA Times reported that she was the youngest daughter of Rodney King, whose beating by police sparked the Los Angeles riots.

Authorities and family are searching for one of the daughters of Rodney King, the man who was captured on video being severely beaten by Los Angeles police officers in 1991.

Local police told the LA Times that King’s youngest daughter, Tristian King, was last seen in Las Vegas, Nevada, on April 26, planning to visit family in the Los Angeles area. A missing person report was filed on Friday, according to the outlet.

Police added that “there are no further details to provide at this time.”

His sister, Lora King, requested on social media that anyone with information about Tristian’s whereabouts contact her. Tristian is said to be 5-foot-7 and weigh 215 pounds, according to KTTV. The outlet also noted that she has brown eyes and brown hair.

“If anyone sees my little sister Tristan, please contact me immediately. She has been missing for 11 days now and today is her 29th birthday,” her sister, Lora King, wrote. in a Facebook post on Monday, per the news station. “I’ve already filed a missing report. I really hope they contact me about finding her.”

“Please keep me and my family in your prayers,” she continued. “She was last seen in Santa Monica, California.”

The acquittal sparked a series of protests, but tensions between law enforcement and locals boiled over into five days of riots that left at least 55 people dead.

On Monday, the Senate easily approved a bill to extend security protections to immediate family members of Supreme Court justices.

Bill – directed by the senses. John Cornyn (R-Texas) and Chris Coons (D-Del.) — passed the Senate unanimously, meaning all 100 senators had to sign off for it to pass without a formal vote.

He is still heading towards the Chamber for the passage now.

“Threats to the physical safety of Supreme Court Justices and their families are shameful, and attempts to intimidate and influence the independence of our judicial system cannot be tolerated,” Cornyn said in a statement. .

“I am pleased that the Senate quickly approved this measure to extend Supreme Court police protections to family members, and the House must pass and pass it immediately,” he added. .

Coons, in a statement, said he was “pleased to see this bipartisan bill passed unanimously by the Senate to extend security protections to the families of Supreme Court Justices.”

The bill would formally allow the U.S. Supreme Court Police to provide round-the-clock protection to family members, consistent with the security enjoyed by some executive and congressional officials.

The bill was introduced by the two senators on Thursday, about three days after the leaked draft ruling, drafted by Judge Samuel Alito, that would strike down the constitutional right to abortion. Politico, citing a source, reported four other justices — Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch and Amy Coney Barrett — were set to vote with Alito, giving them a majority to overthrow Roe.

The report sparked near-immediate protests outside the Supreme Court, where law enforcement officials then erected an “unscalable” fence.

Citizens and permanent residents of Canada who have been unable to bring their family members here by Parents and Grandparents Program should consider the backup option of a Parents and Grandparents Super Visa.

The Canadian Parents and Grandparents Program – which offers permanent residency to qualified applicants – is very popular and operates through a lottery system.

However, the last window to submit an “Interest to Sponsor” form came in 2020, and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) recently said it was still processing requests for Invitations to Apply from such applicants.

Eight things to know about the Canadian Parents and Grandparents Program
Enrollment in the Canadian Parents and Grandparents Program will increase by more than a third to 32,000
Parents and Grandparents Program: IRCC says it is still processing applications already received


IRCC officials do not know when a new window will open to submit the form to express interest in bringing family members to Canada.

The lack of certainty surrounding the Parents and Grandparents Program has many people considering the Parents and Grandparents Super Visa.

This 10-year multiple-entry visa can be used to bring family members here on temporary status, while efforts to gain permanent residency are underway.

Super visa holders can stay in Canada for periods of up to two years. In comparison, a regular visitor visa is usually valid for up to six months.

Parents and Grandparents Super Visa: Requirements

The parent or grandparent must:

  • Demonstrate that he is the parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or permanent resident;
  • Obtain medical insurance from a Canadian insurance company valid for at least one year, providing minimum coverage of $100,000 for health care, hospitalization and repatriation;
  • Pass a medical examination.

The parent’s or grandparent’s family member in Canada must:

  • Demonstrate that he is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident;
  • Provide the applicant with an invitation letter. This is a letter that provides information about the applicant’s planned visit, the occupation of the child or grandchild, and the economic situation in Canada. Most importantly, this letter must include a written and signed promise of financial support to the applicant for the duration of their visit;
  • Demonstrate that his income is greater than one predetermined minimum level.

Immigration Levels Plan for the Parents and Grandparents Program

The annual number of immigrants to Canada through the Parents and Grandparents Program is expected to increase by more than a third over the next three years.

Ottawa’s latest immigration levels plan targets 25,000 newcomers under the program in 2022, 28,500 in 2023 and 32,000 in 2024.

This represents a 36% increase over the 2021 goal of 23,500 PGP newcomers.



The increases are an encouraging sign for those wishing to bring family members to Canada through this very popular program. However, in the meantime, the more expedient option is the Parents and Grandparents Super Visa.

Hyderabad: In another horrific incident, a man was allegedly stabbed to death by his wife’s family members for interfaith marriage. The woman who was previously a Muslim, had converted her religion to Hinduism and had recently married the victim a few months ago.

Police identified the deceased victim as Nagraj. The incident reportedly took place around 9 p.m. near Saroornagar Tehsildar’s office on Wednesday. According to reports, the accused was on a motorbike and had fled the scene after allegedly stabbing Nagraj. The incident allegedly took place on a crowded road and many people recorded the incident, clicked pictures of the corpse.

Following the incident, tension arose in the area and Nagraj’s family staged a protest claiming that his wife’s family was involved in Nagraj’s murder.

Nagraj was reportedly married to Pallavi (formerly known as Syed Ashrin Sultana) on January 31 against her family’s wishes.

Nagraj’s relatives alleged that his family killed the boy because they belonged to a different religion and got married without his family’s wishes.

Following the tragedy, the BJP organized a rally demanding justice and the arrest of the perpetrators. Raja Singh, a Telangana BJP MP, demanded the arrest of everyone involved in planning and carrying out the murder.

On Friday, Shehzad Poonawala, national spokesperson for the BJP, commented on the matter on Twitter. Poonawala said: “If a Muslim husband of a Hindu wife had been killed by his family, we know what would happen now! Congress, AAP, TMC, SP would have reached the United Nations alleging ISLAMOPHOBIA …the crime is secular?Hence the secular chupp.

The police filed a complaint, opened an investigation and searched for the suspect. According to Sridhar Reddy, Deputy Commissioner of Police, the first investigation showed that their love marriage was the motive for the murder.
