You better forget about this whole incident and celebrate diversity enthusiastically, or you will be ruined as a “racist” and an “Islamophobe.”

“Salzburg: Somali knife pyromaniac shot by police officers,” translated from “Salzburg: Somalischer Messer-Pyromane von Polizisten angeschossen,” Exxpress, January 17, 2022 (thanks to Medforth):

In Salzburg’s Liefering district, police officers stopped a dangerous Somali man by shooting him after the alleged firebug first started a fire and then attacked people in the burning house and also the police officers with a knife. Several people, including the alleged perpetrator, were injured.

In Salzburg, the professional fire brigade was alerted to a room fire in Aribonenstraße shortly after 4 a.m. after flames broke out on the third floor of a residential building. A large number of firefighters were able to extinguish the fire and evacuate a total of 30 residents of the house. Seven people had to be brought to safety using a turntable ladder. The evacuated people were temporarily accommodated in a nearby hotel and were cared for by the Salzburg Red Cross. Three people had to be taken to the LKH Salzburg, two of whom suffered smoke inhalation, “Salzburg 24” reports.

According to the fire brigade, the fire led to heavy smoke development, the apartment in which the fire broke out was completely destroyed. The cause of the fire was not known at the time the fire was extinguished, but in the course of initial police investigations, arson was quickly suspected – not least because a knife crime crime took place at exactly the same time.

Because while the fire brigade was being informed about the fire, the police received further emergency calls that a person with a knife had run out of the exact same apartment building where the fire was blazing, threatening residents and passers-by. The suspect also attacked a caller with a knife for no apparent reason, but without injuring him. The perpetrator then fled.

During the immediate search, a police patrol stopped the suspect in the area of the street Linke Glanzeile. However, the perpetrator did not follow the police instructions and attacked the police officers with a knife, according to a police statement. In order to stop the attack, the police officers fired three shots, according to current information. The perpetrator was injured to an unspecified extent in the area of the thigh. After initial treatment, he was temporarily arrested and taken to Salzburg University Hospital.

Windmill Casino uses sanitary pad vending machines to keep students

More than 3.7 million girls in South Africa lack access to hygiene products. This has led to school truancy, which Bloemfontein’s Windmill Casino is grappling with. The casino has handed over a sanitary pad vending machine to a local school that has helped 600 young girls stay at their desks.

LEREKO Middle School Sanitary Pad Vending Machine

The 600 girls at Lereko Secondary School in Mangaung Rocklands will receive a token each month, which they will use at vending machines that dispense sanitary pads.

“No girl should miss school because they don’t have access to proper hygiene products, and Windmill Casino hopes that donating this machine will help these young women focus on their studies and not have to worry about where they can find sanitary pads,” said Windmill Casino’s general manager Johan Oosthuizen.

Acting school principal MF Kibinye said the donation had already boosted attendance.

SUN INTERNATIONAL’S EDUCATION PROGRAM

In 2019, Sun International has incorporated 38 schools across the country into its education program to integrate sustainable practices in schools.

The plan incorporates many sustainable development elements, such as social, health and safety, economic and environmental elements.

“Our efforts have paid off during this time, with an improved pass rate,” said Sun International’s Heidi Edson.

Assisting schools across the country

Sun International’s education program provided three bursaries for high-performing students, remodeled 20 classrooms, built bathing facilities, developed netball courts, installed whiteboards, and held teacher seminars and math classes.

“I would encourage more initiatives, like Sun International’s Adopts the School Project, because an investment in education is ultimately an investment in the future of our country and the global village of which we are an integral part,” Edson said.
