The hurricane is moving towards land with maximum sustained wind speeds of 90mph (150 km/h). It lost power as it approached North and South Carolina, but officials warn it could still kill "a lot of people" amid risks of "catastrophic" flooding.

February 20, 2018 10:21 AM So far so good for Rollers in Sudan

Rollers carry what appears to be a healthy 3-0 lead from the first leg played in Gaborone 10 days ago, but Al Merreikh's record is intimidating. They have managed to overturn a 3-0 first leg defeat, after overrunning Nigerian opponents, Rivers United 4-0, to progress 4-3 on aggregate. They were semi-finalists in the 2015 edition, and that should serve 172

October 30, 2017 4:33 PM Kevin Spacey faces backlash from LGBT community after coming out

If Kevin Spacey had come out as gay a year ago, the reactions would've been very different to those seen on Monday. For starters, he almost certainly would have been congratulated - a Hollywood A-lister publicly coming out in a world where sexuality is considered by many to damage ticket sales.

It’s Thursday, and I can’t remember why I have the N.Y.P.D.’s number saved in my phone. Hello from Los Angeles, where we’re pointing fingers at Harvey Weinstein, welcoming John Wells and Shonda Rhimes to the TV Hall of Fame, and living out our revenge fantasies through the third season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. The N.Y.P.D. confirmed to me Thursday morning 139

The term Kalahari was derived from the Kgalagadi word for ‘the land which dried up’, ‘the dry land’ or ‘the thirstland’ 94

August 28, 2017 5:37 PM People are urging donations for Harvey relief efforts — just not to the Red Cross

As former president Barack Obama — as well as celebrities and local leaders — encourage donations to the American Red Cross, others on social media are telling donors to give elsewhere, criticizing the leading disaster-relief organization for its response to recent natural disasters, particularly the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. That sentiment has been shared 93

August 28, 2017 4:00 AM Dispatch from the Delta: You can’t be proud of what you don’t know

Phew! My third transect of the Okavango Delta with mekoro is in the bag. I am writing this from the banks of the Thamalakane River in Maun. Although I am technically out of the Okavango Delta, there are still some wild sounds here. I hear the sounds of swamp boubous, that charming signature duet of the black coloured barberts, and earlier I heard the grand 41

Navigating the Okavango Delta waterways with a mokoro is an advanced skill and only few men alive possess that skill. These waterways transform everyday because of the stomping elephants and hippos. Both of these animals that have found a sanctuary in this incredible wilderness are responsible for creating, opening and blocking these waterways, so even with a GPS it is not simple 48
