1…………> Breaking: London Hotel Fire 


A fire has broken out at Mandarin Oriental Hotel at William Street in Knightsbridge, with the huge area has been cordoned off by the police and vehicle traffic between Sloane Street and Hyde Park Corner has been stopped in both directions. 


Dozens of firefighters rushed to tackle a blaze that broke out at a hotel building near central Hyde Park in London Wednesday afternoon. 

“Around 100 firefighters are tackling a large fire at a hotel of 12 floors in Knightsbridge,” London Fire Brigade said shortly after the fire started. 

A later tweet from the brigade said: “We have now got 20 fire engines and around 120 firefighters (at the scene).” 

Almost a year ago, a huge fire in Grenfell Tower Block in West London killed 71 people.

2…………> “Miracle Girl”: Guatemala

Video of police officers carrying a baby girl who was buried under ash and debris after Guatemala volcano Fuego erupted has kindled a small sign of hope, as the death toll rises and authorities warn the Fuego volcano is showing signs of greater activity and fears spread that anyone still stuck in the buried houses was dead and would remain entombed there. 

The death toll from the weekend’s devastating eruption climbed to 75 with nearly 200 people remained missing, as “The Volcan de Fuego”, one of several active volcanos in Guatemala had the most severe lava and gas explosion in four decades.
A spokesman for Guatemala’s disaster agency, CONRED, said once it reached 72 hours after the eruption, there would be little chance of finding anyone alive.

3…………> Defending Melania: President Trump

In a pair of tweets on Wednesday, Mr. Trump railed against ongoing media speculation about Mrs. Trump’s whereabouts.

Donald J. Trump


The Fake News Media has been so unfair, and vicious, to my wife and our great First Lady, Melania. During her recovery from surgery, they reported everything from near death, to a facelift, to left the W.H. (and me) for N.Y. or Virginia, to abuse. All Fake, she is doing really well!

Donald J. Trump


…Four reporters spotted Melania in the White House last week walking merrily along to a meeting. They never reported the sighting because it would hurt the sick narrative that she was living in a different part of the world, was really ill, or whatever. Fake News is really bad!

He later said “four reporters” had spotted Mrs. Trump at the White House last week “walking merrily along to a meeting”, but they did not report the “sighting because it would hurt the sick narrative that she was living in a different part of the world, was really ill, or whatever”.

4…………> Trump, Comrade Un Meeting: Sentosa Island


The White House confirmed that President Trump and the top leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) Comrade Un will meet at the Capella Hotel on Singapore’s Sentosa Island, after a short delay last week.“The venue for the Singapore summit between @POTUS and Leader Kim Jong Un will be the Capella Hotel on Sentosa Island,” White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders tweeted. 

“We thank our great Singaporean hosts for their hospitality,” she added. 

Earlier on Tuesday, Trump said that his planned meeting with Kim will “hopefully be the start of something big.” 

The White House said Monday that the meeting is tentatively scheduled for 9:00 a.m. (0100 GMT) on June 12 in Singapore. 

After recent twists and turns, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last week met with Kim Yong Chol, vice chairman of the Central Committee of the DPRK’s ruling Workers’ Party of Korea, in New York. 

On Friday, Trump too talked with Kim Yong Chol who delivered a personal letter from Kim Jong Un in a meeting that lasted almost two hours. 

Subsequently, Trump said he would meet with the top DPRK leader on June 12 in Singapore as originally scheduled. 

5…………> Our Trashy World: Plastic Pollution

Once scenic coastlines filled with bottles, animals choking on bits of plastic, people picking through the material on vast rubbish dumps: Our convoluted, convenience-based affair with plastic is taking a huge environmental toll because it is lightweight, durable and cheap. The world produced 8.3 billion metric tons of the material since mass production began in the 1950s, and since it is not biodegraded, much of what we’ve made now lives in landfills in many town’s outskirts. Rubbish pickers there hunt for recyclable plastics to earn a living.
