  4. As North India continues to receive its share of cold waves this winter, a hilly town of Himachal Pradesh stands frozen. The small town of Kaza is buried in layers of snow as temperature recently dropped to minus 26 degrees. Located in the faraway Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh, the town currently bears a strong resemblance to the Kingdom of the North from Game of Thrones and we can't help but wonder what Winterfell would look like in this snow-clad town. © BCCL While Kaza is freezing at -26 degrees, reports suggest that temperature at other parts of the Valley has dipped even lower. Keylong plummeted to -17.6, while Manali shivered at -7.6 on Friday. Shimla too is freezing at -1.3°C. Excessive snowfall has also given rise to great traffic woes in parts of Kullu, Mandi and Shimla. Around 250 roads in Manali have been blocked due to heavy snowfall and people have been advised to steer clear of visiting these parts of the hill station. © BCCL Social media is abuzz with breathtaking pictures from various parts of Himachal and it's a sight to behold.

  5. Not much was known about the 'Bikini Climber', to the outside world, until recently the news of her sudden mysterious death, was all over our timeline. The world is full of rather strange people and we're not going to steal any attention away from her bizarre and strange antics. A young girl from Taiwan called Gigi Wu, who'd become a local social media sensation with her hiking stories, was also dubbed as the 'bikini climber' by all her limited fans. Why, you ask? That's because she took to the name too literally and would hike around mountain tops clad in just a bikini, obviously, relentlessly trying to make it on top of the mountain, along with a statement or two and a bunch of selfies. © Instagram The young climber set out to scale a mountain peak in Taiwan's Yushan National Park and she probably slipped and fell down 65ft, into a ravine. She then used a satellite phone to tell her friend about the fall, probably to seek some help, but unfortunately, when the rescue team arrived there, they just saw her lifeless body. The woman was trying to brave the cold weather conditions while wearing almost nothing, and due to the fall and the weather conditions weighing down on being unbearable, she lost her life. The rescue helicopter deployed to bring her back up struggled to reach her because of extremely bad weather and it took them about 28-hours to get to her body. © Twitter “The weather conditions in the mountains are not good, we have asked our rescuers to move the body to a more open space and after the weather clears we will make a request for a helicopter to bring the body down,” Lin Cheng-yi, an official from the Nantou County Fire and Rescue Services told a local publication, at the place of the incident. Wu had incidentally mentioned her coordinates to her friend when she called in an emergency after the fall. The string of social media influencers who've dived into the perils of adventure is increasing by the day. Just recently an Indian couple was found at the bottom of a popular cliff at California's Yosemite National Park, after a few hikers alerted the officials about their abandoned camera equipment at the top of the cliff. © Twitter The young guns, trying to meet the need for popularity through social media, now days is certainly over the top. The race to enhance any form of validation through these channels is so overpowering, that people don't realise the perils that come along with making a statement like that. 36-year-old Gigi Wu was also headed in that direction and she built a sizeable social-media following, by posting pictures of her on mountain tops, dressed in nothing but a bikini. She would usually wear hike-able clothes to scale the mountains only to change into a bikini when she'd reach the top, to click a photo of herself in it. She's scaled about 100 peaks in 4 years, which I believe is an achievement of some sort, but seriously, not at the cost of your own life? © Twitter In an interview to a local publication, she'd mentioned - “I put on a bikini in each one of the 100 mountains. I only have around 97 bikinis so I accidentally repeated some,”. Seriously, that's some true and intense dedication, isn't it? Well, when she was asked why she'd pose in a bikini at the top, she swiftly answered: “It just looks so beautiful, what's not to like?”. Fair enough, but I suppose there are pertinent things to really pay heed to, than pose for pictures in freezing weather, while wearing a bikini! © Twitter Here's hoping more hikers like Wu take some serious precautions while scaling mountain tops in freezing weather, to avoid plummeting or freezing to their untimely death!
  6. A Gazan woman picks up a food parcel from the UN agency for Palestinian refugees which says it faces its worst funding crisis ever after the White House froze tens of millions of dollars in contributions/ AFP RAMALLAH: The UN agency for Palestinian refugees warned Wednesday it faced its worst funding crisis ever after the White House froze tens of millions of dollars in contributions, a move Palestinian leaders decried as cruel and blatantly biased. The agency provides Palestinian refugees and their descendants across the Middle East with services, including schools and medical care, but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has long accused it of hostility toward Israel and called for its closure. Around five million Palestinians are eligible for its services. On Tuesday, the United States held back $65 million that had been destined for the agency, two weeks after US President Donald Trump threatened future payments. US is the largest contributor to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA). ?The US has announced it will contribute $60 million to the programme budget. There is for the moment no other indication of possible funding,? UNRWA Spokesperson Chris Gunness told AFP. ?This dramatically reduced contribution results in the most severe funding crisis in the history of the agency.? He added, ?stability in the Middle East is what we are talking about and the potential impact of UNRWA being destabilised is very likely to be widespread, profound, unpredictable and catastrophic.? Senior Palestinian officials reacted with outrage to what they see as another move against them by Trump?s White House following his declaration of Jerusalem as Israel?s capital. Hanan Ashrawi, a senior member of the Palestine Liberation Organisation, said the freeze amounted to ?cruelty? towards a ?vulnerable population?. The Palestinian envoy to Washington, Husam Zomlot, said: ?Palestinian refugees and children?s access to basic humanitarian services, such as food, health care and education, is not a bargaining chip but a US and international obligation.? Palestinian officials also accused Trump of chipping away at issues long considered up for negotiation as part of a comprehensive resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, including the status of Jerusalem and the plight of refugees. Around 500 people protested in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday against the freeze. ?Of course this decision will have negative effects and the reduction of the aid will impact our health, our education,? Ibtisam al-Sisi, in her 50s, said at the protest. France meanwhile said it ?regrets? the US move and was in contact with Washington about it. ?Why should we?? The funding freeze comes with relations between the Palestinians and Washington already on the brink. On Sunday, Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas denounced Trump?s peace efforts as the ?slap of the century?, while Palestinian leaders have threatened to suspend their recognition of Israel. US State Department officials insisted the decision to freeze the funding was taken not to pressure Palestinian leaders but to encourage other countries to help pay for and reform UNRWA. But the call came after a behind-the-scenes tussle between hawks who want to cut all aid to Palestinians and officials concerned about the humanitarian and diplomatic fallout. The State Department said $60 million of what had been a planned $125 million package would go through to keep the agency running, but the rest will be withheld for now. UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krahenbuhl expressed alarm and immediately called on other UN members to contribute. Krahenbuhl said the $60 million would keep schools and hospitals open for now, but noted that it was dramatically less than the $350 million Washington paid during 2017. The State Department?s position raised scepticism in the light of tweets sent by Trump on January 2, at the time when the $125 million contribution had been due to be paid. ?We pay the Palestinians HUNDRED OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS a year and get no appreciation or respect,? Trump said. ?They don?t even want to negotiate a long overdue peace treaty with Israel,? he protested, adding: ?Why should we make any of these massive future payments to them?? Vulnerable populations Following Trump?s outburst, it was reported that his ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, had been pushing for a complete end to US support for UNRWA. But US is the biggest single source of funding for the agency, and other US officials opposed an immediate and total suspension. Israel welcomed the freeze as a victory. Its UN envoy Danny Danon alleged the agency misuses aid and ?supports anti-Israel propaganda, perpetuates the plight of Palestinian refugees and encourages hate?. Netanyahu said during a trip to India ?this is the first time that UNRWA is being challenged,? Israeli media reported. ?For 70 years, this organisation has been perpetuating the situation of Palestinian refugees and the narrative of the abolition of Zionism.? But many analysts, including Israelis, warn closing or crippling the agency without an effective replacement could lead to further poverty and perhaps violence. Netanyahu said ?there is always a certain amount of risk? with such decisions. UNRWA has provided health care, emergency aid and schooling to Palestinians since 1950. It was formed in the wake of Israel?s creation in 1948 and the war surrounding it, when hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were either forced from their homes or fled. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said he was ?very concerned? by reports of the freeze. ?UNRWA is not a Palestinian institution, but a UN institution,? he said.
  7. A man stands outside laughing during a massive winter storm in New York City, US, January 4, 2018. AFP/Nicholas Hunt/Getty Images NEW YORK: The eastern United States and Canada shivered under record-breaking low temperatures Saturday as Arctic blasts followed a deadly winter storm that left airports struggling to cope with the backlog of flights. In Canada, temperatures approaching minus 50 degrees Celsius (minus 58 degrees Fahrenheit) were forecast in northern Ontario and Quebec. Arctic air and dangerously cold wind chills could bring temperatures that feel as low as minus 45 Fahrenheit across much of the eastern two-thirds of the United States, with the risk of frostbite to exposed skin within 10 minutes, authorities warned. The big chill follows a winter storm, dubbed a "bomb cyclone" by forecasters, which has been blamed for at least 19 deaths in the United States, from Texas to Wisconsin, US media reported. The storm raked the East Coast with heavy snowfall, glacial temperatures and high winds, forcing the cancellation of thousands of flights and causing thousands more delays. On Saturday, more than 2,250 flights within, into or out of the United States were delayed, with New York´s John F. Kennedy airport and the international airport in South Carolina´s Charleston most affected. Although most flights have resumed after the storm´s passage, passengers on Air China 989 from Beijing were forced to wait seven hours to deplane at JFK, flight tracking site Flightradar24 tweeted. Passengers complained of being stranded on the tarmac for hours and then facing lengthy delays in baggage claim that made traveling, particularly with babies or the elderly, a misery. "Been stuck on tarmac for over 3 hours at JFK Alitalia flight 8604. Multiple passengers seeking medical attention. Staff not communicating," tweeted passenger Chris Mendez overnight. "Babies literally crying from hunger and people calling police from the plane." At least two flights bound for New York -- OS87 from Vienna and LH400 from Frankfurt -- had to turn back over Britain and Ireland due to "capacity limit at JFK," Flightradar24 said. Frostbite in minutes The Port Authority, which runs New York-area airports, acknowledged the problem, saying it was working to limit JFK flight arrivals until there were "gates available to handle the backlog." Adding to the chaos, a China Southern Airlines and Kuwait Airways jet clipped each other´s wings at JFK´s Terminal 4 late Friday, causing damage to both aircraft but no injuries, officials said. The US National Weather Service warned that below normal temperatures are likely to continue into early next week, forecasting freezing rain from Kansas to Tennessee, and said that ice could complicate road transport. In the Midwest and Northeast, the highest temperatures were likely to be 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit below average, potentially breaking a number of daily records, forecasters warned. "It will be a brutally cold weekend but some relief is in sight heading into early next week," the weather service said. Mount Washington, New Hampshire recorded the second-coldest temperature on earth early Saturday, minus 36 Fahrenheit. The temperature in New York, the US financial capital and home to 8.5 million, hovered Saturday around 14 Fahrenheit, with the Hudson River along the west side of Manhattan partially frozen. In eastern Canada, which has suffered through extreme cold for two weeks, there were further flight delays and cancellations at the Montreal and Toronto airports, and some communities along the Quebec coast faced flooding. "Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill -- and keep emergency supplies in your vehicle," the Canadian weather service warned.
