Mother saves child from being kidnapped in broad daylight in New York

New York police arrested this Saturday a man who tried to kidnap a five-year-old boy in broad daylight in the neighborhood of Queens, New York.

The case became famous for the action of the child’s mother. With visible courage, Dolores Díaz López did everything to prevent the man from taking her son, having managed to avoid the worst. On social media, images have gone viral.

The suspect was identified by authorities as 24-year-old James McGonagle, who has been charged with attempted kidnapping, among other crimes.

The detention was based on images circulating on social networks, where Dolores Díaz López with her three children can be seen, around 20:00 local time (00:00 in mainland Portugal).

Suddenly, a man gets out of a car and rushes to take one of the children, putting her in the back of the car where he was going.

The five-year-old’s mother and two brothers managed to grab him through the window, pulling him out of the vehicle before James McGonagle managed to pull away.

To the media, Dolores Díaz López explained that she was on her way to work with her husband, father of the children, when her son Jacob was grabbed by the suspect.

About the heroic act, he has no doubts: “It was necessary to do whatever was necessary, however it was”.

Yesterday SATC fans rejoiced when they learned about three exciting new cast members to the mix.

Offering a much needed dose of diversity, HBO Max announced Nicole Ari Parker, Karen Pittman and Sarita Choudhury will join OG cast members Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis.

Sex And The City’s original six seasons and subsequent two movies have long-sparked criticism due to the lack of diversity in its largely-white cast as well as shocking storylines, including Kim Cattrall’s character Samantha – who will not be returning for the reboot – dating a black man and rowing with his sister over her race.

Leading the way in the new arrivals is Nicole, who has featured in such films as Black Dynamite and Remember The Titans as well as on shows like Time After Time, Empire and Chicago PD.

Who’s who: Her character is a fabulously wealthy woman called Lisa Todd Wexley who has three children and lives on Park Avenue, Entertainment Weekly reports

Her character is a fabulously wealthy woman called Lisa Todd Wexley who has three children and lives on Park Avenue, Entertainment Weekly reports. Park Avenue was also the location of the swank apartment owned by one of the four main characters Charlotte York played by Kristin.

Charlotte acquires the apartment on the original show through her divorce from Kyle MacLachlan’s sexually dysfunctional character Trey MacDougal in a bitter divorce settlement involving his mother Bunny.

Nicole was spotted on the set of the show on Tuesday, where she put on a glamorous display in a bold colourful ensemble paired with bright orange accessories while beaming and waving at passersby.

Meanwhile Karen has had recurring shows on TV programs ranging from Horace And Pete to The Americans to Yellowstone. She will be playing Columbia Law professor Dr. Nya Wallace – possibly with some connection to Cynthia’s character Miranda Hobbes, who is an attorney.

Sarita first rose to fame opposite Denzel Washington in the Mira Nair movie Mississippi Masala and has also worked with Spike Lee and M. Knight Shyamalan. Her character Seema Patel is a real estate broker based in Manhattan who brought herself up by her bootstraps.

The casting has been welcomed with open arms by fans, who praised the move on social media following show writer Michael Patrick King and lead lady and executive producer Sarah’s vow to create greater inclusivity.

Ahead of filming beginning, in February, HBO Max chief content officer Casey Bloys detailed how Sarah and Michael ‘didn’t want to tell a story with all-white writers or an all-white cast’.

He said: ‘It’s not reflective of New York. So they are being very, very conscious about understanding that New York has to reflect the way New York looks today.’

In 2018, Sarah referenced the diversity issue, saying: ‘You couldn’t make it today because of the lack of diversity on screen. I personally think it would feel bizarre.’

THE FASHION

Appropriation has been highlighted in retrospect regarding the show’s fashion, which is arguably the fifth main character on the show.

Earlier this year, Kayleigh Dray wrote for Stylist: ‘During the first and second seasons of the show, our wealthy cisgender heroines live and operate within an entirely white bubble.

‘In the third season that all changes, albeit not for the better.

‘For starters, Miranda – smart, liberal, awesome Miranda – charges us to follow the “white guy with a baby” as a way to locate an available apartment in a “nice” (aka super- gentrified) neighbourhood. Carrie waxes lyrical about “ghetto gold jewellery”.

The jewellery is not the only issue, as Samantha wore an afro wig following her cancer treatment.

Her styling, which she referenced to Foxy Brown, was blasted for appropriation among a plethora of other problematic moments.

SAMANTHA AND CHIVON

In Series Three’s No Ifs, Ands or Butts, begins dating Chivon, an African-American record executive.

His sister Adeena, played by Sundra Oakley, takes issue with her brother dating a white woman.

When speaking about Chivon, Samantha makes reference to his ‘big black c**k’ and slams Charlotte for having a ‘knee-jerk liberal reaction’ when Charlotte scolds her for using ‘black talk’ when discussing her latest conquest.

In 2018, Sundra spoke about starring in the episode and the storyline saying: ‘It’s like, oh man, why did it have to be that way? Why couldn’t it have been a different story?…

‘Samantha only slept with one black guy in the whole range of the show, in New York City? O.K., sure.’

In 2018, Vulture listed the episode as the lowest in a ranking of every episode of the show, writing: ‘On the one hand, this is the episode in which Carrie meets Aidan and goes on her first date with him.

‘On the other hand, it plummets in our ranking for its clumsy handling of Samantha dating a black man named Chivon. Clichés abound, most notably his overbearing sister, and, worse, the show’s dedication to themes ends up equating Samantha and Chivon’s insurmountable racial differences with Aidan’s wish that Carrie quit smoking and Charlotte’s date’s lack of kissing skill. Let’s just say none of this would fly in 2018.’

THE SECOND MOVIE

Sex And The City 2 saw the ladies jet to Abu Dhabi on a work trip, with a slew of culturally insensitive moments occuring during the trip – starting with ‘Magic carpet’ references on the plane.

Speaking about women wearing a niqab, Carrie makes the alarming statement: ‘I can’t get on board with the veil covering the mouth. It makes it feel like they don’t want them to have a voice’.

Later in the movie, Carrie flouts respecting local laws by flashing an ankle to get a taxi.

The movie caused widespread horror among critics due to the racially insensitive approach.

Iran’s secret service wanted to kidnap US activist: US accuse

Dhe New York Prosecutor’s Office has charged four Iranian intelligence officials or informants with the planned kidnapping of a US human rights activist. They wanted to kidnap the American woman of Iranian origin, who lives in Brooklyn, and abduct her to Iran, where she was threatened with prosecution as a critic of the Iranian regime, as the Justice Department said on Tuesday (local time).

The four suspects are in Iran, it said. A fifth person who lives in California is alleged to have helped fund the venture. The Federal Police FBI thwarted the plan in time, it said.

The Justice Department did not name the person who was about to be abducted. According to media reports, it was the author and activist Masih Alinejad. They spread via their verified Twitter account also several reports and comments identifying her as the target of the planned kidnapping.

The filming of the reboot of “Sex and the City” has started

After the flood of nostalgia that the reunion of Friends, another legendary series has decided to offer itself a come-back unexpected. Loosely announced in December 2020, the return of Sex and the City is now official: the shooting started on July 9, 2021 in the streets of New York in the presence of Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie Bradshaw), Cynthia Nixon (Miranda Hobbes) and Kristin Davis (Charlotte York).

Entitled Just like that, to use one of Carrie’s favorite expressions, in the original version, the reboot will recount the adventures of the three five-year-old heroines, their loves, their friendships and their challenges, while they still wear dazzling outfits in the streets of New York. The release date is unfortunately not yet known, but HBO Max and the actresses happily split up several teasers, posted on social media at the start of filming.

However, the scenario may surprise those who have seen and re-examined the 94 episodes of SATC, half a dozen times. Producers of And just like that quickly clarified that the idea was not to “redo Sex and the city“. The new production will not be a simple copy and paste. In February 2021, Casy Bloys, president of programming of HBO, clarified with Harper’s Bazaar: “The creators don’t try to show the characters reliving their thirties. The story focuses on the lives of three women in their fifties; they will therefore experience what people of this age are experiencing. ”

Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon, 56, as well as Kristin Davis, 55, had already met in June 2021 to see the first lines of the new production. The interpreter of Carrie Bradshaw had also shared a snapshot of their reunion, on her Instagram account.


Where’s Samantha?

Directed by Darren Star and inspired by the successful novel by Candace Bushnell, the original series had known immense glory from its release in 1998. After six seasons, two films had completed the plot, in 2008 and in 2010, proof that fans were struggling to part ways with the four protagonists of Sex and the City.

However, one of them (and not the least) is missing. Kim Cattrall (Samantha Jones) will not take part in the new production, turning the famous quartet into a trio. According to HBO Max, the 64-year-old actress refused to participate in the project. According to Casey Bloys, still in Harper’s Bazaar, the scenario will offer an explanation for Samantha’s absence: “As in reality, people come into our lives, others leave.”

Those who have followed the high-profile arguments between Kim Cattral and Sarah Jessica Parker are also wondering if it was not for something. Anyway, SATC without Samantha will probably snatch her S to the acronym …

Eric Adams, the former policeman who won Democratic primaries and is a New York City House favorite

Two weeks after primaries and a chaotic vote count, New York’s Democrats were told yesterday who their candidate will be in the Nov. 2 mayoral election. The chosen one is Eric Adams, a 60-year-old former African-American police captain, former state senator and mayor of Brooklyn since 2013. He is the favorite to win over his Republican challenger, 67-year-old Curtis Sliwa, founding broadcaster and leader of the Guardian Angels, a non-profit organization dedicated to crime prevention.

“Although there are still small amounts of votes to count, the results are clear: a five-neighbourhood, historic, diverse coalition led by working-class New Yorkers led us to victory in the Democratic primaries for mayor of New York,” Adams said in a statement. Official results are not expected until mid-month, but projections on Wednesday pointed to victory for Adams, who was about 8,000 votes ahead of another moderate, Kathryn Garcia, a former sanitation commissioner.

These primaries were the first in which a new voting method was used. Instead of choosing just one of the 13 candidates, voters were asked to list their five preferences, in order. The method, which avoids the need for second rounds, foresees that the votes of the least voted candidates are distributed among the candidates indicated as second preference, and so on.

Adams was named the winner in counting the first preferences, but it was necessary to count the votes by mail, which arrived later. Amidst the chaos, election officials were forced to back down on one of the partial counts they revealed, where the other candidates seemed to move closer to Adams, admitting that they had mistakenly included about 135,000 test votes, which were not valid.

Mayor since 2014, Bill de Blasio was barred from running for a third term in this Democratic stronghold (Rudy Giuliani and Michael Bloomberg were exceptions). About 86% of voters residing there are registered with this party, so Adams is the favorite to win in November. The job is sometimes considered the second most difficult in the US, after president, and will have the added challenge of leading the city in the post-covid-19 pandemic.

Adams, who was a Republican between 1997 and 2001, has vowed to strike a balance between fighting crime and ending racial injustice in the security forces. Police for more than two decades, he himself was the target of police violence when he was 15 years old. Like the Republican opponent, he is against the idea of ​​cutting police funding.

When a Boeing cargo plane ditched in the Pacific off Honolulu, both pilots were rescued. The machine had a double engine failure.

WITHtwelve years after a fully occupied Airbus ditched in the Hudson River off New York, another large aircraft landed lightly in the water after an engine failure. Off the coast of Honolulu, Hawaii, the pilots of a Boeing 737-200 cargo aircraft made an emergency landing in the Pacific late at night.

On board the plane from Rhoades Aviation on behalf of Transair were only two people – who survived the impact. Both pilots were rescued, with one person believed to be in critical condition aged 58. The US Air Safety Authority (FAA) reported engine problems with the relatively old Boeing model. It had its maiden flight 46 years ago.

The ditching took place about ten minutes after take-off around 1:33 a.m. local time on Friday night. The pilots tried to return to a closer airport in Hawaii, but failed. They reported problems by radio, first with one engine and then with both drives. About five kilometers from the rescue runway, they touched down in the Pacific and were rescued by boats and a helicopter.

In industry blogs, the flying performance of the pilots is highlighted in landing a large model on the sea in the dark. After take-off, the machine only reached a maximum height of a good 600 meters. Then the pilots reported technical problems.

When the Airbus ditched off New York in 2009 on a US Airways domestic flight, 155 people were on board, all of whom survived. Three minutes after take-off, the machine had flown into a flock of Canada geese at an altitude of about 1,000 meters. Both engines failed due to a bird strike. It is still unclear what led to the Boeing’s engine failure after take-off in Honolulu.
