Kpop group FANATICS went through a serious situation after, in a live broadcast, its members were sexualized by its management team.
On September 7, four of them were broadcasting live with their fans on the VLive platform. They wore skirts and a woman gave them a jacket so they can cover themselves.
However, within seconds you can hear how a member of the team is angry about the event:“The goal was to show their legs, so why did they cover them?” This was followed by a sound like a slap. The young women, uncomfortable, did not know what was happening and only managed to remove their jacket.
The advertising agency FENT Entertainment, the group’s manager, made a later statement apologizing for the event.
Hi, this is the FANATICS agency, FENT.
As an agency, we acknowledge the seriousness of the incident in which an inappropriate comment was made by a staff member during the FANATICS V Live broadcast on September 7. First, we would like to apologize to the members and fans who were hurt by this.
The agency acknowledges that the inappropriate comment from the staff member was incorrect, without excuse, and the responsible person will take the necessary action against it.
FENT will be more careful in the future so that this incident does not happen again.
Once again, we apologize to the fans who love FANATICS and we will do our best to protect the rights of the artists you love.
Several thousand people in northwestern China have tested positive for brucellosis, also known as “malt fever” writes CNN.
Health authorities in Gansu Province have so far confirmed 3,245 cases of infection. The infection usually occurs through contact with domestic animals that carry the bacterium. Another 1,401 people are suspected of being infected and are waiting for confirmation of the laboratory samples.
Of the area’s 2.9 million inhabitants, just over 21,000 people have so far been tested.
Extinct in Norway
According to Norwegian health informatics Brucellosis infection occurs primarily through the consumption of non-pasteurized dairy products, ie milk and cheese.
It is a zoonotic disease, which means that it occurs in animals and can be transmitted to humans. It is found in cattle, pigs and goats.
The disease is widespread in large parts of the tropical and subtropical world, but is described as extinct in Norway. In the period 1977 to 2018, 48 cases of infection were confirmed in Norway.
The disease usually has a creeping onset with lethargy, weight loss, fever and fatigue. In some cases, the condition may start with an acute fever. Symptoms can persist for years, either continuously or for periods. It is diagnosed using bacterial and blood tests.
The bacterium is rarely transmitted from person to person, and the treatment usually consists of a combination of two or three different antibiotics.
The prognosis is usually good, but the disease can cause chronic ailments. In less than one percent of cases, it causes life-threatening inflammation of the innermost layers of the heart and meningitis.
Accident at the vaccine laboratory
The outbreak in China is traced back to an accident at Zhongmu Lanzhou Laboratory in Gansu Province. The accident is said to have taken place during the late summer of 2019.
The laboratory develops brucella vaccines intended for use on animals, and is said to have used a disinfectant that had expired. According to CNN, this must have meant that traces of the bacterium existed in the exhaust gases from the laboratory.
The eruption is said to have been caused by aerosols with infection leaking into the air in the area.
Researchers at the institute are said to have started to feel sick in November. By December, at least 181 cases of infection had been confirmed, the Chinese state channel reports Xinhua.
An investigation was launched and the laboratory lost its license to produce vaccines.
In a press release, the laboratory writes that for eight employees, the accident will result in “serious criminal prosecution”. They are now putting all the cards on the table in collaboration with the authorities’ investigation of the incident.
LEH, India (Reuters) – From deploying mules to large transport aircraft, India’s military has activated its entire logistics network to transport supplies to thousands of troops for a harsh winter along a bitterly disputed Himalayan border with China.
In recent months, one of India’s biggest military logistics exercises in years has brought vast quantities of ammunition, equipment, fuel, winter supplies and food into Ladakh, a region bordering Tibet that India administers as a union territory, officials said.
The move was triggered by a border stand-off with China in the snow deserts of Ladakh that began in May and escalated in June into hand-to-hand combat. Twenty Indian soldiers were killed while China suffered an undisclosed number of casualties.
Both countries are negotiating to resolve the confrontation, but neither side has backed down. The Indian military is now set to keep troops deployed along the treacherous, high-altitude border through the winter.
Eastern Ladakh, where the flare-up occurred, is typically manned by 20,000-30,000 soldiers. But the deployment has more than doubled with the tensions, a military official said, declining to provide exact numbers.
“We have mirrored the increase in Chinese troops,” the official said, adding the Indian military was well-prepared but did not want further escalation or a prolonged conflict.
Temperatures in Ladakh can fall well below freezing, and troops are often deployed at altitudes of over 15,000 feet, where oxygen is scarce, officials said.
Since snow blocks mountain passes into Ladakh at least four months every winter, Indian military planners have already moved more than 150,000 tonnes of materials into the region.
“All the supplies that we need have already been pushed to wherever they are required,” said Major General Arvind Kapoor, chief of staff of the Indian army’s 14 Corps.
FERRYING TO THE FRONTLINE
On Tuesday morning, a succession of the Indian air force’s large transport aircraft landed at a forward base in Ladakh, carrying men and materials, as fighter jets roared overhead.
Soldiers with backpacks streamed out and were checked for COVID-19 symptoms at a transit facility, where they awaited further transport.
The materials are stored across a network of logistics hubs.
At a fuel, oil and lubricant depot near Leh, Ladakh’s main city, a hillside was covered with clusters of green drums.
At storage facilities at a nearby supply depot, boxes and sacks of ration – including pistachios, instant noodles and Indian curries – stood in tall piles. At another base near Leh, tents, heaters, winter clothing and high-altitude equipment lay stacked.
From these depots, the materials are pushed to logistics nodes by trucks, helicopters and, in some particularly difficult parts, mules, officials said.
“In a place like Ladakh, operations logistics is of huge importance,” said Kapoor. “In the last 20 years, we have mastered it.”

Three containers from Asia, which contained counterfeit products to detect and combat COVID-19 and which belonged to a recognized brand worldwide, were seized by the Tax and Customs Police in Cartagena.
The operation was carried out Within the framework of the operationalization of the International Alert System, and thanks to information provided by the Police Community of America (AMERIPOL), the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), HSI and CBP.
In the containers there were 50 thousand medicines, which, according to the investigations carried out, were going to Venezuela.
According to the investigations carried out by international agencies and the Colombian authorities, they realize that in order to avoid the suspicion of the customs agencies of our country, the merchandise would have made a stopover in Cartagena to be distributed in smaller cargo units that would enter the neighboring country of Venezuela for its illegal commercialization.
“This activity constitutes a process of materialization of an investigation carried out against a criminal structure dedicated to money laundering through foreign trade activities, with criminal interference in the cities of Cartagena, Barranquilla, Medellín and Bogotá ”, stated the POLFA.
It was also indicated that the Police and some Customs services of Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, OIJ of Costa Rica and the National Police of Colombia will begin this week, the so-called “Operation ESLABÓN”, coordinated through DIAN-POLFA and AMERIPOL in the fight against smuggling and counterfeiting of products related to COVID-19.
During the course of 2020 and the period of the pandemic in Cartagena, 556 actions have been carried out to control and apprehend 4.7 million goods valued at 220 billion pesos, among which are: medicines, cigarettes, liquors, toys, footwear, electrical appliances, among others.
A Taliban delegation has returned to Qatar, paving the way for the start of peace talks with the Afghan government that are expected to take place in the Gulf state.
The delegation’s arrival early on Saturday was announced by Taliban officials, who were speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to the media.
The negotiations are part of a peace deal the United States signed with the Taliban in February in Doha.
Washington has ramped up pressure on Afghans on both sides of the conflict to get started with their negotiations to decide what a post-war Afghanistan might look like.
The US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien held a telephone call with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani last week. The US officials have also pressed neighbouring Pakistan to get the Taliban to the table.
Relentless delays over the exchange of prisoners – 5,000 held by the Afghan government and 1,000 by the Taliban – have hindered efforts to get intra-Afghan talks started.
In late August, a delegation led by the Taliban’s political office head and the chief negotiator of the February deal with the US, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, visited Pakistan.
While little was revealed about the details of his meetings with Pakistani officials, it is believed he was pressed to get started with intra-Afghan talks.
With many of the Taliban leadership council living in Pakistan, Islamabad has been pressed by Washington to use its influence to push negotiations forward.
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has repeatedly said he wants peace talks started and a military solution for Afghanistan is an impossibility.
Pakistani officials reportedly met a second time with Baradar on Friday before his return to Doha, again pressing for a swift start to Afghan peace talks.
US and Afghan officials have said they want to see a reduction in violence in the conflict going into talks with the Taliban, but the group maintains that a ceasefire would only be on the agenda once talks begin.
Washington’s February agreement with the Taliban was reached to allow the exit of US troops after nearly 20 years at war in keeping with a promise President Donald Trump made during the 2016 US election campaign.
The withdrawal, which has already begun, is not dependent on the success of the Afghan negotiations but rather on commitments made by the Taliban to fight armed groups and ensure Afghanistan cannot be used to attack the US or its allies.
The Gulf Livestock 1 transmitted a distress signal early Wednesday when it was about 185 kilometers (115 miles) west of Amami Oshima island, about midway between Okinawa and Kyushu, Japan’s southernmost main island.
The area in the East China Sea was being battered by the powerful typhoon, equivalent to a Category 4 hurricane with winds of at least 130 mph, at the time the ship went missing.
The rescued sailor was found late Wednesday, after more than half a day in the water. He was in good condition, the Coast Guard said.
The 133.6-meter-long (438 foot) ship, crewed by 39 Filipinos, two New Zealanders and two Australians, was sailing from Napier, New Zealand, to Tangshan, China, according to the authorities in Japan, New Zealand and Australia.
The Panamanian-flagged ship left New Zealand on August 17 with a cargo of more than 5,800 cows, according to New Zealand’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
The Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs confirmed the rescued sailor was Filipino, adding that its consulate general in Osaka was monitoring the situation and coordinating with the Japanese Coast Guard, which was launching a second search and rescue mission.
A second storm in the region, Typhoon Haishen, is expected to strengthen to the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane by the end of the week. It’s expected to threaten Kyushu on Sunday, and potentially affect the Korean Peninsula Monday.
Japan’s meteorological agency is warning that the storm could be the third biggest to hit the country since records began almost 70 years ago.
A New Zealand animal rights group said the Gulf Livestock 1 incident illustrates why the export of live animals should not be permitted.
“These cows should never have been at sea. To make matters worse they’re likely all pregnant,” said Marianne Macdonald, campaigns manager for animal rights group SAFE NZ.
“This is a real crisis, and our thoughts are with the families of the 43 crew who are missing with the ship. But questions remain, including why this trade is allowed to continue,” Macdonald said in a statement.
CNN’s Angus Watson, Eric Cheung, Junko Ogura and Thornton Chandler contributed to this report.
(CNN) — A kite flying festival in Taiwan turned terrifying on Sunday when a 3-year-old girl got caught in the tail of a giant kite and flew into the air.
The international kite festival was held in the city of Hsinchu, south of the capital Taipei. He video The crash, which circulated widely on social media, shows several people preparing the large orange long-tailed kite to fly alongside a crowd of onlookers. The kite was already flapping in the strong wind.
The organizers then release the kite, and it soars, along with a little girl dangling from its tail. It is unclear how close the girl was to the kite on the ground or how she got caught in it.
The girl was in the air for about 30 seconds before she was lowered to the ground.
Screams can be heard in the video as the girl is lifted into the air, being swayed wildly by the kite and the wind. It was in the air for about 30 seconds before the kite lowered low enough for audience members to grab and release it.
She was immediately rushed to the hospital with her mother and festival staff, but miraculously she only suffered minor injuries with abrasions to her face and neck, according to the Central Agency for News of the government of Taiwan. She has already been discharged and is at home with her family.
In a statement on Facebook, Hsinchu Mayor Lin Chih-chien apologized for the incident and said the festival was immediately suspended to ensure the safety of attendees.
“We will review the circumstances to prevent accidents like this from happening again and determine responsibilities,” he said.
The wind at the festival on Sunday afternoon was unusually strong, hitting a 7 on the Beaufort scale, meaning wind speeds ranged from 50 to 61 kilometers per hour, according to the news agency. That’s just one level below gale-scale winds.
RINGTIMES BALI – Independence is proof that a country free from colonialism, free to form a government system, to regulate every element in it.
Of course in the colonial era gaining independence was not easy, for that every time country must have a characteristic to commemorate independence day.
As in Indonesia, every month August did the second anniversary of the proclamation of independence, but it was not only Indonesia, several country it also commemorates independence day on the moon August, along with the information;
The island of Bali, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Indonesia, as well as one of the most popular sites for those who prefer tropical seas, will no longer welcome foreign visitors until the end of this year in an attempt to stem the spread of Covid-19.
This was announced by the governor of the province, Wayan Koster, according to which the decision to deny tourists access to the island is “in line with government policy”, which has prohibited Indonesian citizens from leaving the country at least until the end of 2020.
Beaches, temples and attractions of the pearl nestled between the Bali Sea and the Indian Ocean have been open to local tourists since the end of July, while for the return of foreigners there was initially talk of 11 September. Now the slip. The governor added that the president’s executive Joko Widodo it “fully” supports the island’s recovery plans, but that it is necessary to “be careful”. Koster then stresses that we must be “well prepared”, because a failure by Bali to contain the spread of the virus would have “a big impact on the image of Indonesia in the eyes of the world” and then added that, according to a refrain now also known in our latitudes, the island’s authorities will now concentrate on the effort to increase internal tourism “.
An empty tourist shop in Gianyar
The pandemic has hit Bali hard, whose economy is about 80 percent based on tourism. According to data released in the local press, over 2,500 people employed in the sector have lost their jobs, while more than 73,000 have been forced to take unpaid leave.
The island, which had welcomed over 6 million tourists in 2019, has seen that figure drop drastically. And with hotels and restaurants forced to close or to work in small ranks, many residents have been forced to return to previous farming activities, as has happened in other oceanic edens, not least Easter Island.
On the island, registered cases of coronavirus infection are currently around 4,000 with 49 deaths, while in the whole of Indonesia the toll speaks of over 157,000 confirmed cases, for just under 7,000 deaths.
