North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has ordered the execution of 15 people this year, including several top officials, South Korean intelligence says.

Mr Kim purged and executed his once-powerful uncle for treachery in 2013.
South Korean politicians were told that one of the officials killed was a forestry minister who had complained about North Korea's forestation plan, Yonhap news agency reported.
"Excuses or reasoning doesn't work for Kim Jong-un, and his style of rule is to push through everything," said Shin Kyung-min, a member of South Korea's parliamentary intelligence committee, quoting an intelligence official.

They may not be related, but David Beckham presented Odell Beckham Jr. with some familial advice following a recent meeting between the two men.

OOH My G0D California police find boy, 8, after parents' car stolen

(Reuters) - Police in Northern California found an eight-year-old boy safe and well on Monday after he was taken in his parents' car, which was stolen from outside their home before dawn, authorities said.
Brock Guzman had been sitting inside the silver 2001 Toyota Corolla at about 4:45 a.m. local time when it disappeared from in front of the house in Fairfield, about 40 miles northeast of San Francisco, police said.
The Fairfield Police Department said an alert citizen later reported seeing the vehicle parked on a city street.
"Officers arrived on scene and located Brock Guzman inside the vehicle," the department said in a statement. "This is still an active investigation as the suspect remains at large."
Police said the vehicle had been driven off the family's driveway by an unknown suspect with the boy inside, and they had issued an Amber Alert in five counties.
The police department published a photo of a black bicycle left at the scene when the car was stolen. It asked members of the public to contact authorities if they know its owner.

Young Love No More Ariana Grande and Big Sean split!

After eight months of dating, Ariana Grande and Big Sean have pulled the plug on their relationship.
The two, it was reported, actually ended their relationship several weeks ago.
"They made the decision to part ways because their conflicting touring schedules would keep them apart over the next year,” a source told Us Weekly who confirmed the split with both singer's publicists.
"They both deeply care for each other and remain close friends," their reps told Us Weekly in a joint statement. "We kindly ask that the media respect their wish for privacy regarding this personal matter at this time."
Despite the split, it seems like the two continue to genuinely care for one another. On April 4, Big Sean wrote a cryptic tweet, likely aimed at Ariana that said, "Just know I love u and I care for ya." Grande echoed his statements a few days later, tweeting, "Love u babes the most. You just can't imagine."
The two confirmed they were dating in October and they had appeared together on stage and on several red carpets.

Princess Diana left how much to Prince William and Prince Harry?

Princess Diana died almost 18 years ago, but her final wishes were never known publicly… until now.
A new British website called Probate Search has revealed not only Diana's will, but 41 million other wills dating back to 1858. Diana's will, naturally, is among the most interesting.
According to the "Today" show, Diana left close to $30 million to her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. She also instructed that her mother, Frances Shand Kydd, should be consulted about the boys’ education in the event of her death.
"She wanted to make sure [her children] were showered with love,'' Robert Jobson, author of "The New Royal Family,'' told "Today." "That's something she really agonized over when she split from Prince Charles. I think this will reflects that.''
Diana and Prince Charles divorced in 1996 when both William and Harry were teenagers.
Diana's iconic wedding dress, which features thousands of pearls and a 25-foot train, was also left to her sons. Other items, including paintings and a clock, were bequeathed to Diana's 17 godchildren. Her will also instructed that $80,000 tax-free should be left to her butler and confidant, Paul Burrell.
The new British site also features wills from other famous Brit's, including Winston Churchill and George Orwell. The site requires a subscription fee of $15.

A couple of minutes back, news broke that best amigos, Davido and MC Galaxy got into a warmed contention two evenings prior at Shizzi's studio in Lekki, Lagos, which brought about MC Galaxy winding up beaten 'beat up' by Davido, his driver and some of his young men. connected with Davido's camp to discover what truly happened and Davido's administrator, Kamal Ajiboye solely portrayed the occurrence to . Kamal affirmed that it is genuine a battle broke out yet demanded that Davido didn't touch MC Galaxy. In his words: 'I was really there with them prior in the day however I exited before the battle began. I've identified with them two, and what happened is that, initially, you know Davido and Galaxy are companions, he generally welcomes them for his parody shows and most times he makes jokes out of them at his demonstrates, the young men didn't care for it and they've been cautioning him about it for some time. So I speculate the studio, he began once more, he started contrasting his vocation with B-Red saying he's greater than B-red. They contended over it for some time then he swung to another HKN kid, Lati and called him a driver and regular houseboy. Lati has likewise been cautioning him not to call him a driver on the grounds that he's a Personal Assistant and not a driver but rather he didn't tune in. So David(o) was bolstered up and just instructed him to leave. From what I listened, David didn't touch him, it was Lati that pushed him and that prompted a battle

Bubba Watson’s more than a one-trick pony.

We already know Watson is one of the best golfers in the world. The two-time Masters winner is not only known for what he can do on the golf course, though. Watson also gets plenty of ink for what he does when he’s not bombing drives with his pink driver.
Watson’s already made appearances in “music videos” for his efforts on “The Golf Boys,” and now he’s apparently taking his musical career to new heights. Watson appeared on an actual music track where he, of course, is rapping.
Watson, who is a very religious man, appeared on a recent track with Christian rapper KB entitled “Ima Just Do It.”
You can hear him at the 3-minute mark of this video.
Honestly, it’s not bad for a professional golfer, especially the 9-iron line, but the “My wife’s not gonna let me be on fleek if y’all don’t hurry up” is … well, it’s something.
While it’s passable, we suppose, no one’s suggesting Watson should quit his day job.

Wow Batman v Superman’ Trailer Released After Leaking Online

The official “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” trailer has been released after leaking online days before its premiere.
Director Zack Snyder tweeted the video on Friday with the hashtag “not pirated.”
The leaked version appeared to be shot on a phone camera, and featured Portuguese subtitles. The official debut of the trailer was planned as an Imax special event set for Monday, April 20 at select Imax locations, and Snyder said those screenings would go ahead as planned, featuring “a few extra shots plus a little swag.”
The full trailer offered fans a proper glimpse at Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight coming face to face with Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, with Batman ominously asking, “Tell me, do you bleed? You will.”
The footage also features shots of the Batmobile in action, along with voiceovers from Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor and Holly Hunter’s mystery character as they weigh in on whether Superman can be trusted, or whether “power corrupts.”
“Dawn of Justice” also stars Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth) and Diane Lane (Martha Kent), and will feature the big screen debut of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman ahead of two standalone films focusing on those characters, as well as two planned “Justice League” films, which will bring all of DC Comics’ most iconic heroes together. Other Justice League members with solo films already planned include “The Flash,” starring Ezra Miller; “Shazam,” with Dwayne Johnson appearing as antagonist Black Adam; and “Cyborg,” starring Ray Fisher.
Snyder directed “Batman v Superman” from Chris Terrio’s script, based on a story by Snyder and David S. Goyer.

William and Kate: royal parents with a modern image

The birth of Prince William and his wife Kate's second baby will cap a momentous four years for Britain's golden couple, completing their journey from student sweethearts to regal domesticity.
The couple have cultivated an image as down-to-earth parents ever since William drove his new family home from hospital after the birth of Prince George in 2013, his hands-on approach being in stark contrast to previous generations of royal fathers.
The 32-year-old has proudly boasted of changing George's first nappy, talked about how he balanced sleepless nights with his job as a search and rescue helicopter pilot and admitted "a lot of things affect me differently" since becoming a father.
But the illusion of normality is periodically exposed, such as when it was revealed that taxpayers footed the £4.5 million bill for refurbishing their 20-room Kensington Palace apartment in London.
During a recent engagement in London, Kate reportedly said she was expecting their second child later in April. The prince said he expected the new arrival to be a "game-changer".
George's birth helped change the public perception of Kate, who was described by novelist Hilary Mantel in 2013 as "a shop-window mannequin, with no personality of her own, entirely defined by what she wore".
She has since gained respect for her battles against acute morning sickness, which hospitalised her during her pregnancy with George, and her reported willingness to stand up to the royal family over George's upbringing.
"The desire to do things their way is underscoring all of Kate and William's decisions," People magazine said in a recent edition.
- Living 'normally' -
Despite their glittering 2011 wedding at London's Westminster Abbey, the couple have always been determined to keep their family life private.
They have vowed to bring up their children out of the glare of the media, whom William partly blames for the death of his mother Diana in a car crash in Paris in 1997.
The couple have set up home in Anmer Hall on the grounds of his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II's Sandringham estate in rural eastern England and William has taken up a new job with the local air ambulance that will keep him out of London.
Their deliberate attempts to limit displays of grandiosity have helped attract a new generation of royal support, with support for the monarchy now scraping 80 percent, its highest level in decades.
William and his younger brother Prince Harry suffered through the bitter separation of their parents and the loss of their mother at an early age.
More reserved than Harry, William entered the University of St Andrews in Scotland, where he and Kate met while studying history of art.
The daughter of a businessman and a former air stewardess, the former Catherine Middleton has admitted that she "went bright red" at her first meeting with the second-in-line to the throne in 2001

Albert Ebosse: Footballer was murdered, says father

Albert Ebosse, the player who died after a match in Algeria last year, was murdered, according to his father.
Cameroonian striker Ebosse died aged 25 in August after JS Kabylie lost to USM Alger in the Algerian top division.
The official Algerian report suggested Ebosse died in hospital from head injuries sustained after objects were thrown from the stands.
"It wasn't a rock. It wasn't a seizure. My son was murdered," Andre Bodjongo told BBC World Service's Sportshour.
"Since my son was killed, not the president of JS Kabylie, not even any of his team-mates have sent me their condolences. Nobody has called me from the club, nobody.
Albert Ebosse's mother and father, Marie and Andre Bodjongo, held their son's funeral on August 29 2014
The pathologist who carried out post-mortem tests in Ebosse's home country, Cameroon, said the player died as a result of a beating.
The post-mortem in Cameroon claimed that Ebosse received "a blow to the head" that caused "an indentation of the skull" and impacted his brain, and that he suffered upper body injuries which indicated "signs of struggle".
Other signs of violence included "rupture of cervical vertebrae" and a wound to the shoulder.
Algeria's Ministry of Justice opened an inquest into Ebosse's death on 19 December, but the results have not been published.
Ebosse's father wants the Confederation of African Football and world governing body Fifa to get involved.

Apple has released a new photo storage app for Macs, which can automatically store full-resolution images online.

The iCloud Photo Library syncs photos across devices while managing storage.

Users can opt to keep original high-res photos in the cloud with lower-res version on a Mac, PC or iOS device.
But critics highlight recent online photo security breaches and say Apple's storage fees are much
 higher than some of its competitors.
The iCloud Photo Library app responds to how much storage is left on each device.
It automatically downgrades the resolution of images held on a device as its storage space starts to run out - starting with the oldest images first - while ensuring they are still of suitable quality to be viewed full-screen.
'Targeted attacks'
If the user has a data connection and has chosen the online storage option for their full-res images, the app will download the larger original file as and when they need it. This could be for editing, zooming into the photo or for printing, for example.
Some experts wonder whether Apple's users are ready to trust the company with their photos after about 500 private pictures, mainly of celebrities, were stolen from the iCloud platform by hackers last year.
Apple later explained that this had happened as the result of a targeted attack in which the intruders had successfully obtained or guessed users passwords to its service, rather than hacked the platform.
Last October, Apple issued another security warning to its iCloud users, saying: "We're aware of intermittent organised network attacks using insecure certificates to obtain user information." It said its own servers had not been compromised.
Martin Garner, mobile services expert at CCS Insight, said: "People are sharing enormous trust when they use services like these. It's not just Apple - many other providers have also suffered breaches recently. But users will need to think about security and accessibility."

'Keep an eye on prices'

Many online storage providers offer cheaper plans for the same or more data to be stored online than Apple's iCloud.
However, each offers different functionality regarding how it syncs with devices, and whether it works automatically or needs user intervention
Apple iCloud compared with other online storage providers
The cost of online photo storage
Provider Data plan Price
Amazon (Unlimited Photos plan)Unlimited (Photos only) + 5GB$12 (£8)/year
Google Drive (1TB)1TB$120 (£80)/year
Dropbox (1TB)1TB$144 (£96)/year
Box (Business)Unlimited$180 (£120)/year
Microsoft (Livedrive Pro Suite)5TB /unlimited backup$198 (£132)/year
Apple (iCloud Photo Library)1TB$240 (£160)/year
The iCloud Photo Library is the first to keep a lower-res image on the device while sending the original full-res image to the cloud.
Unlike a simple back-up or copying of photos, this means users can keep the images on their devices while maximising storage space.
However, many consumers may still prefer deals such as Amazon's "Unlimited Photos plan", which would cost a fraction of the price to maintain a large library.
"Apple will have to keep an eye on prices as the market in online storage is extremely competitive," said Mr Garner.
"Many of its competitors, like Dropbox, have apps available on the iPhone, so it needs to be wary that users do have a good amount of choice.
"Some services like Microsoft and Amazon also bundle online storage with other services like software subscriptions or movie streaming, so Apple may need to consider doing likewise."

Mom gets 20 years to life for poisoning son with salt

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — A judge Wednesday sentencedLacey Spears to 20 years to life in prison for poisoningher 5-year-old son to death.
On March 2, a jury had found Spears, 27, a Scottsville, Ky., resident who was living in the New York City area, guilty of second-degree murder after a 14-day trial.
"Her actions that day, they were inhuman. They despicable. They were evil," Doreen Lloyd, Westchester County's assistant district attorney, said in court. She described Spears' administration of salt into Garnett's feeding tube as the boy lay sick in the hospital, his inability to vomit it up because of previous scarring and his explosive bouts of diarrhea that went on for hours as his body tried to expel the poison.
Spears' condition, M√ľnchausen by proxy syndrome, caused her to crave the attention that being a mother with a sick child gave her, said acting state Supreme Court Justice Robert Neary. While he believes that Spears was suffering from a mental illness, he did not think it affected her competency to stand trial or the necessity for her to receive more than the minimum, 15-year sentence.
"This was not a spontaneous or ill-conceived solitary act," Neary said. "It was a serious and orchestrated series of actions that really shock the conscience," actions that she denied as she tried to shift blame for the death of her son to doctors and the reason for her prosecution as a conspiracy of law enforcement officials.
There's not a sympathy factor here," Aronwald said. "The judge heard all the evidence. What reason would there be (to show mercy) given that the jury found she killed her child?"
Second-degree murder carries a maximum penalty of 25 years to life in prison.
Spears had moved to Chestnut Ridge, N.Y., about 35 miles northwest of New York City, 14 months before Garnett's death on Jan. 23, 2014, living on the secluded Fellowship Community's grounds where volunteers live with and care for senior citizens in need.
Defense lawyer David Sachs said at the sentencing that Spears continues to maintain her innocence.
All of Garnett's good qualities that prosecutors praised were the result of Spears' successful parenting, Sachs said, noting that she had moved to New York from Florida seeking a better life for her son.
Sachs had provided numerous letters in support of Spears "by the people who knew Garnett and Lacey best," including Garnett's maternal grandparents, aunt, and other relatives. Another letter came from the Westchester County Jail chaplain.
Each asked the judge for leniency at sentencing, and Sachs said Spears' mother died in December.
While the probe into Garnett's death focused on M√ľnchausen by proxy, prosecutors ultimately did not introduce that theory at trial, suggesting they were convinced that the evidence they had was strong enough for a conviction.
Prosecutors contended Spears had shown a pattern of sickening her son to get attention for herself, calling what happened "nothing short of torture." She had chronicled Garnett's many illnesses — including his final one — on Facebook and a personal blog.

Tiger Woods plays extra-special round at Augusta

AUGUSTA, Ga. — No round of golf has ever meant so much to Tiger Woods.
With daughter Sam beside him, Woods walked out of the Augusta National clubhouse on Wednesday afternoon and met up with son Charlie, who'd been waiting with a friend of his father's.
"C'mon guys," Woods said, and the trio and Woods' girlfriend Lindsey Vonn trouped off to the Par-3 Contest

The White House is under Cyber attack every day.

Digital assault.

The strategies change, and the suspects range from individual performers to governments like Russia, China, North Korea and Iran.

The objective is essentially the same, to infiltrate government PCs for arranged data.

Government systems are tested constantly, including the White House, said one Obama organization official, talking on secrecy to talk about inner security.

The upshot: a consistent in the background digital fight between the United States and would-be programmers, some with connections to remote governments. Couple of offensives are made pubic, however an October break that may have included Russia keeps on drawwing media examination, including a CNN story Tuesday.

The fight lines are continually moving: Hackers attempt to enter government PC frameworks; governments set up safeguards to attempt and obstruct them; programmers attempt new routines; the administration tries new resistances.

Digital protection isn't the main objective here, authorities said. Security frameworks are composed so that U.S. authorities can comprehend what might be gatecrashers are attempting to do, how they're attempting to do it, and what their aims are.

The private war got to be to some degree open when the White House revealed in October that it rolled out improvements to one of its systems due to an endeavored interruption.

In an Oct. 29 announcement, the White House said it had "distinguished movement of concern" on the unclassified Executive Office of the President system, and that authorities "took quick measures to assess and moderate the action."

The announcement likewise said that "the Executive Office of the President gets cautions concerning various conceivable digital dangers regularly" and that all are considered important. "Absolutely a mixture of on-screen characters discover our systems alluring targets and look for access to delicate government data," the White House said.

Organization authorities said no ordered documents were hacked amid that episode. They declined to point the finger particularly at Russia however said Russian hobbies are among the suspects.

White House representative Josh Earnest declined to talk about the case in point of interest on Wednesday, saying just that "we made fitting moves to address" the issue. "Furthermore, we did as such," he included, "aware of the way that our PC organize here is going to keep on being a target."

There have been times when authorities have pointed the finger at different countries. The organization blamed North Korea for being behind a year ago's hack assault of Sony Pictures, calling it striking back for a drama film ridiculing pioneer Kim Jong Un. North Korea denied the allegation (and, in the same way as different nations, blamed the U.S. of hacking different countries).

Organization authorities said they are always overhauling cybersecurity frameworks in endeavors to meet regularly developing dangers and that the issue is a high need for President Obama.

In January, amid a visit to the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center, Obama pitched cybersecurity enactment that included new law requirement apparatuses. In his State of the Union Address that same month, Obama said, "no outside country, no programmer, ought to have the capacity to close down our systems, take our prized formulas, or attack the protection of American families, particularly our children."

The U.S. should battle digital dangers "pretty much as we have done to battle terrorism," Obama said.

In February, the organization uncovered the Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center.

Chinese torch paper iPhones, banknotes to please dead

BEIJING — As Americans hunt Easter eggs Sunday, people in China will burn banknotes from hell and torch iPhones to please dead relatives.
Each year, China's Tomb Sweeping Festival sparks creative moves by entrepreneurs trying to cash in on the tradition of honoring the deceased and giving them a comfortable afterlife. Made from paper and foil, the fake phones and other items sell for just cents or a couple dollars at street stalls and online. They compete with fake money — a staple offering — and an ever-widening array of other paper gifts that people place or burn beside the tombs of family members.
A three-day national holiday that runs through Monday marks Qingming, the "clear and bright" festival when Chinese families remember their ancestors. Public celebrations include a massive homage Sunday to the legendary Yellow Emperor at a temple in Shaanxi province.

NAIROBI, Kenya — As families and friends of the Garissa University attack victims lined-up at the Nyayo National Stadium to provide details of their loved ones, pressure mounted on the government to fight terrorists who have pledged further attacks on the country.
"We'll not (stand for) continuing losing our children in cold blood because the government has failed to protect them," lawmaker Chris Wamalwa visiting families at the Stadium.
He blamed anti-terrorist police unit for failing to prevent the attack and urged the president to disband the unit and form another tasked fighting terrorism. Lawmakers also called for increased cross-border surveillance – the terrorists are believed to be of Somali origin, according to police.
In the aftermath of Thursday's attack allegedly by al-Shabaab militants on Garissa University that killed 148, some Kenyans called for unity in the country – Muslims make up about 11 percent of Kenya's population.
"It was a terror attack, and not a religious war," said lawmaker Raila Odinga. "We must deal with it appropriately now."

Pope, thousands brave rain for Easter in St. Peter's Square

VATICAN CITY (AP) — In an Easter peace wish, Pope Francis on Sunday praised the framework nuclear agreement with Iran as an opportunity to make the world safer, while expressing deep worry about bloodshed in Libya, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Nigeria and elsewhere in Africa.
Cautious hope ran through Francis' "Urbi et Orbi" Easter message, a kind of papal commentary on the state of the world's affairs, which he delivered from the central balcony of St. Peter's Square.
He had just celebrated Mass in rain-whipped St. Peter's Square for tens of thousands of people.
Francis made his first public comments about the recent framework for an accord, reached in Lausanne, Switzerland, and aimed at ensuring Iran doesn't develop a nuclear weapon.
"In hope we entrust to the merciful Lord the framework recently agreed to in Lausanne, that it may be a definitive step toward a more secure and fraternal world."
Decrying the plentitude of weapons in the world in general, Francis said: "And we ask for peace for this world subjected to arms dealers, who earn their living with the blood of men and women."
He denounced "absurd bloodshed and all barbarous acts of violence" in Libya, convulsed by fighting fueled by tribal and militia rivalries. He hoped "a common desire for peace" would prevail in Yemen, wracked by civil warfare.
Francis prayed that the "roar of arms may cease" in Syria and Iraq, and that peace would come in Africa for Nigeria, South Sudan, Sudan and Congo.
He recalled the young people, many of them targeted because they were Christians, killed last week in a Kenyan university, and lamented kidnappings, by Islamic extremists, that have plagued parts of Africa, including Nigeria.
On Good Friday, Francis chastised the international community for what he called the complicit silence about the killing of Christians. On Easter he prayed that God would alleviate "the suffering of so many of our brothers persecuted because of his name."
During Mass, Francis was shielded from pelting rain by a canopy erected outside St. Peter's Basilica, while prelates carried umbrellas in the yellow and white colors of the Vatican.
The downpour petered out to a drizzle, and by the ceremony, the rain had stopped. Francis, wearing a white overcoat, was driven through the square in the open-sided popemobile so he could wave to the faithful.
