Religious extremism

A PROMINENT Bangladeshi-American blogger known for speaking out against religious extremism was hacked to death as he walked through Bangladesh’s capital with his wife, police said on Friday.
The attack on Thursday night on Avijit Roy, a Bangladesh-born US citizen, occurred on a crowded footpath as he and his wife, Rafida Ahmed, were returning from a book fair at Dhaka University. Ms Ahmed, who is also a blogger, was seriously injured. It was the latest in a series of attacks on secular writers in Bangladesh in recent years.

Cyclone approaching.........

Winds of almost 200 km/h were recorded for several terrifying hours overnight as the storm passed over Creal Reef, a speck in the Coral Sea with a lighthouse and
weather station and not much else.
That was last night. Marcia is now tracking more or less due south towards the towns of Yeppoon, Rockhampton, Gladstone and perhaps even Bundaberg.
“Over the next few hours people around the Yeppoon area will feel gale force winds. We expect the full brunt will be felt around the Yeppoon area,” Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said.
The width of this cyclone is around 70 kilometres, and Queensland emergency authorities are expecting winds around the eye to reach up to 285 km/h.


 very worried about our little house at the causeway which is right on the water and in an area that has been evacuated.There goes the deck furniture!
