Tropical Cyclone Ana: Fiji suffers second deadly storm in a month

Three-year-old boy among those missing in floodwaters in the country’s northern and western islands

One person has died, and five, including a three-year-old boy, are still missing after Cyclone Ana pummelled Fiji on Sunday, just over a month after category 5 Cyclone Yasa tore through the country’s northern islands.

Two more cyclones are already forming off Fiji’s coastline, and cyclone season still has three months left to run.

Simon Cowell Plays Shocking Crossbow Prank On America's Got Talent Co-Star Sofia Vergara
Simon Cowell left co-star Sofia Vergara fearing she had shot him in the chest with a crossbow during a prank on America’s Got Talent. The music mogul pulled the shocking prank after enlisting the help of stunt couple Ryan Stock and Amberlynn Walker on the latest episode of the US talent show. Ryan and Amberlynn previously went viral following a botched crossbow stunt on AGT, and Simon had Sofia believing things had gone even worse upon their return to the show.Simon was brought to the stage and had a balloon placed above his head, while Sofia was blindfolded and told to wait for a prompt to fire the crossbow.However, unknown to her, producers silently rushed on to the stage and made it look like Simon had been shot by an arrow, complete with fake blood.While he lay on the floor pretending to be wounded, Amberlynn removed the arrow from Sofia’s weapon.A stunned Sofia removed her blindfold and stared at Simon in horror. Letting her in on the act, he then said: “I got you!”Sofia then apologised to Amberlynn for pushing her while she was in shock, before vowing to get her own back on Simon.“You know I’m Colombian and we get revenge,” she said.  Posting a clip on Instagram, Sofia wrote: “AYYEEE @simoncowell really got me!! I nearly had a heart attack when I took off that blindfold. Revenge prank planning starts now…”Simon is currently judging the US series while Britain’s Got Talent is on hold due to the pandemic. BGT producers pulled the plug on the 2021 series late last year, deciding it was unable to go ahead without an audience present at the auditions. Last year’s live shows were delayed by four months as bosses worked out how to end the series while navigating the Covid situation. The competition was eventually won by musical comedian Jon Courtenay.READ MORE:'I Could Have Smashed My Spine To Pieces': Simon Cowell Speaks Out About Horror AccidentBritain's Got Talent 2021 Called Off Due To Covid PandemicSimon Cowell Hilariously Trolls Amanda Holden With The Cheekiest 50th Birthday Present

How white working-class underachievement has been used to demonise antiracism | David Gillborn
The MPs’ report muddles the term ‘white privilege’ and is part of a campaign to keep people angry at the wrong targetThere is a tragicomic element to the title of the latest report by MPs: The forgotten: how white working-class pupils have been let down, and how to change it. If there is one group that has featured consistently in newspaper headlines, thinktank scare stories and government rhetoric about education over the last decade, it is the “white working class”.Since 2010 the education select committee has conducted dozens of formal inquiries; only two have focused on a single ethnic group and both were about the white working class. This gives a clue as to why the report is so controversial and so dangerous; it is the latest step in an ongoing campaign to use the underachievement of poor white people as a weapon to demonise antiracism and keep the same people angry at the wrong target.

Adam Brody Shares One Major Reason He 'Can't Bear' To Watch The O.C.
Many The O.C. fans treated themselves to a re-watch when the classic teen drama was made available to stream earlier this year, but it seems that former cast member Adam Brody isn’t among them.The actor swiftly became a fan-favourite thanks to his role as Seth Cohen in all four seasons of The O.C., but in a new interview, he’s shared one major reason he struggles to revisit the hit show.“Despite any confidence I had, I also can’t bear to watch any of The O.C.,” he told fellow actor Justin Long on the podcast Life Is Short.“Vince Vaughn was my acting hero. To the point where I [was] doing a terrible imitation of him... for most of my twenties.”Adam continued: “The O.C. is me doing a chipmunk Vince Vaughn. Even though I’m mid-twenties, it sounds like I’m going through puberty still... I just watch it now and I’m like, ‘Settle down.’”He added that he’s now “knocked off” trying to imitate Vince Vaughn on screen, adding: “A lot of my acting, for better and worse, in my twenties is due to him.”The O.C. debuted in 2003 and ran for four years, helping push cast members like Mischa Barton and Rachel Bilson into the spotlight.It proved hugely popular with viewers on both sides of the Atlantic, and is credited with helping boost the profile of the Orange County area in which it was set, with reality shows like Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County and The Real Housewives Of Orange County following shortly afterwards. Listen to Adam’s interview in full on Life Is Short With Justin Long.READ MORE:The O.C.'s Rachel Bilson Admits Shock After Learning About Major Plot She Didn't RememberSorry O.C.
