People can be heard shouting “go inside, go inside!” as the massive plume of smoke and steam blasts out of the crater of Whakaari in New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty. The vision, shot by Allessandro Kauffmann, captures the moments before the eruption – people smiling and enjoying the boat ride. And then, White Island, as it’s also known, comes alive. The volcano erupted on White Island in the country’s Bay of Plenty and has reportedly left one dead and others with critical injuries. At least one person is dead but New Zealand authorities expect the toll to rise. Some 50 people were on the island and 23 have been rescued, with the remainder still unaccounted for. pic.twitter.com/NcFiCWi2Yf— Michael Schade (@sch) December 9, 2019 Those are some of the people put boat picked up.

MIAMI: The move was bananas... or maybe the work was just too appealing. A performance artist shook up the crowd at the Art Basel show in Miami Beach on Saturday when he grabbed a banana that had been duct-taped to a gallery wall and ate it. The banana was, in fact, a work of art by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan titled "Comedian" and sold to a French collector for $120,000. In a video posted on his Instagram account, David Datuna, who describes himself as a Georgian-born American artist living in New York, walks up to the banana and pulls it off the wall with the duct tape attached. "Art performance ... hungry artist," he said, as he peeled the fruit and took a bite. "Thank you, very good." A few bystanders could be heard giggling before a flustered gallery official whisked him to an adjoining space for questioning. View this post on Instagram “Hungry Artist” Art performance by me 🙂 I love Maurizio Cattelan artwork and I really love this installation … [Read more...] about Banana taped to Basel show wall an idea; $120K fruit art was replaced minutes after ‘hungry’ performance artist ate it
After being run-out by Martin Guptill in the nail-biting World Semi Final against New Zealand in July, Mahendra Singh Dhoni took a break from cricket and completed a two-week stint with India's Territorial Army in Jammu and Kashmir in August-in 2011, he had been conferred the rank of honorary lieutenant-colonel for his contribution to the sport. He also used the sabbatical to spend time with wife Sakshi and their daughter, Ziva. While the former Indian skipper has been away from the field for almost five months now and speculation around his future has only intensified, Mirror has learnt that Dhoni also used the break to come up with a TV show. According to a source close to the development, the show will go on air in a few months.

With the ruling BJP expected to win 12 out of the 15 assembly seats that went in for byelections on December 5, the Congress party has accepted defeat. The BJP needs six of those 15 seats to remain in a majority in the assembly. "We have to agree with the mandate of the voters of these 15 constituencies," said senior Congress leader DK Shivakumar. In the previous elections, the Congress had won in 12 of those 15 seats and the JDS o of former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda, the remaining three. Trends available so far showed Congress leading in two (Shivajinagar and Hunsur), while the BJP leading in 12 seats. Marching towards victory, BJP's Shivaram Hebbar was leading against Bhimanna Naik of Congress in Yellapur. Among 13 disqualified legislators fielded by the BJP as party candidates for the bypolls, 10 are maintaining their leads. The bypolls were held after the disqualification of 17 rebel Congress and JD(S) MLAs, whose revolt led to the collapse of the 14-month-old H D … [Read more...] about ‘People accepted defectors’, says Congress leader DK Shivakumar as BJP heads for a splendid show in Karnataka bypolls
