60 Birds Fell From Sky Shrieking in Pain and Bleeding From Their Eyes For Mysterious Reasons

In a terrifying incident witnesses described as a scene “like something out of a horror film,” about 60 birds died in Australia earlier in July 2019 after falling from the sky shrieking and bleeding from their eyes and beaks.

In a terrifying incident witnesses described as a scene “like something out of a horror film,” about 60 birds died in Australia earlier in July 2019 after falling from the sky shrieking and bleeding from their eyes and beaks.

The birds, that belong to a protected native species—the long-billed corella—are believed to have been poisoned, leading to their mysterious mass death near a school at One Tree Hill in Adelaide, in the country’s south.

Many of the birds were already dead when rescuers were called onto the scene to tend to the cockatoos. While some of the corella were alive, those too were bleeding from their beaks and eyes.

Sarah King, the founder of Casper’s Bird Rescue, told the Guardian that one of her staff discovered the poor creatures before calling her in a state of distress to say to her that there were far more of the suffering birds than he could handle.

King believes that the way in which the long-billed corella died was consistent with poisoning, leading to a grueling death that may have inflicted pain on the birds for days to weeks, in some cases.

Veterinarian Trudy Seidel, who also inspected the birds, said that poisoning was “more than likely,” according to the Australian Broadcast Corporation.

Another species of the bird, the little corella, is considered a pest in the region because of the damage it can inflict on crops and street lights, and local authorities list the bird as unprotected.

In 2018, the little corella menaced northern Adelaide by the thousands, stripping trees, causing a ruckus and leaving the area coated in droppings.

In March 2019, a local council proposed culling the creatures by gassing, while others have suggested novel methods of herding them away such as deploying drones or falcons to scare them off.

According to The Mind Unleashed, the deceased long-billed corellas are undergoing disease and toxin testing, which will last several weeks before the cause for poisoning is found.

Those found guilty of harming the protected species might face fines or even jail time for the crime.

London police officer joins Big Brother ‘without permission’

Ms Khafi Kareem is an Ekiti native who resides in London
A police officer is appearing on the Nigerian version of Big Brother despite bosses refusing her permission.

The Metropolitan Police said it was carrying out an internal investigation after PC Khafi Kareem, 29, went on the programme “without authority”.

Scotland Yard said she had been granted unpaid leave for an “unrelated reason”. But  spokesperson for Ms Kareem said she would “comment on the matter when she can”.

Television channel Africa Magic said Ms Kareem joined Big Brother Naija to “do societal good”.

A profile of Ms Kareem on its website reveals she would spend the prize money, reportedly worth N30 million (£68,000), on hosting a travel show in Nigeria, as well as investing in charitable causes.

Ms Kareem and seven other contestants are currently nominated for eviction. Her social media pages have been encouraging viewers to “save her”.

The off-duty officer has also posted a statement requesting UK’s Sun newspaper to withdraw an article that alleges she faces the sack for having sex with another contestant on the show.

She said the paper had not contacted her for her side of the story and the article was damaging to her image.

The Met said Ms Kareem had been granted unpaid leave ahead of appearing on the show, but her request to take part in the programme was denied.

A spokesman said: “A PC, attached to the Met’s transformation command, requested permission to take part in a reality television entertainment show in Nigeria. Permission was not given.

“The Met is aware that the officer has since appeared on the show without authority.

“The Met does not support the officer’s appearance nor does she represent the Met whilst appearing on the show.”

The force added that any officer found to have breached police standards of professional behaviour could face misconduct proceedings.

In its statement Africa Magic said: “Police officer Khafi Kareem believes that you can have it all if you believe in yourself. She is not only hoping to win the prize money but she wants the exposure that being in Big Brother Naija House brings so that she can do societal good.

“What people don’t know about her is that she is secretly talented in spoken word, singing and dancing. She is an Ekiti native who resides in London.” (BBC)

Charley Boy: ‘Being in hell after death will be easy for me’

by Daily Hint  12/8/2019

Nigerian entertainer Charles Oputa, known as Charley Boy, has asserted that being in hell after death would not be difficult for him since he has adapted to the condition of Nigeria.

Charley Boy on his Instagram handle who posted a photo of himself in a casket captioned the picture thus, “If I died and went straight to hell, it may take me more than a week to realise that I am no longer at work or living in Nigeria. Yeye rulers. God go punish una soon”.

The entertainer and activist who is always on the neck of any government on issues that are yet to be addressed in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday 6th August, 2019 in Abuja spoke on his set to release a new single featuring rapper Folarin Falana, popularly known as Falz.

Charly Boy said he has decided to work with Falz because of his philosophical style of music that addresses leadership issues and societal ills.

He added that the project was an advocacy song targeted at driving positive narratives in society.

“Falz is a young man that I so much believe in his music and passion for positive change in all aspects of our society, and we share similar thoughts. We are working on something together and it will surely stir positive change in our lives as Nigerians.”

The former president of Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria said that he decided to use music as a tool to inspire ordinary Nigerians, especially youths, towards holding leaders accountable.

He explained that he was leading an advocacy and enlightenment campaign ‘Na we be Government” and decided to go back to music, his age-long passion, to call citizens to participate in nation-building.

“All over the world, the arts, especially music, have been used to inspire people and change narratives towards a better society. I did not go into music for money, but for the passion for it, and this time I am using it to awake the consciousness of all Nigerians towards building the country they desire,” he said.
