During the MCO, Danish also transferred funds to needy families across the country to help them purchase items like milk and diapers. All the funds for the initiatives come from the charity group called Danish Love and Support Crew which he set up four years ago. He then asked if his parents would allow him to share his successful recipes and cooking videos on social media.

KUALA LUMPUR (June 5): Tan Sri Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin, who is better known as Wan Zul, is said to be stepping down as the president and CEO of Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas), after helming the company for five years. It is unclear at this juncture why Wan Zul has decided to leave the national oil firm where he has spent his entire career. This marks yet another bold move that Wan Zul has taken during his tenure as the chieftain of Petronas. Last year, Wan Zul disagreed with divesting Petronas’ equity stake in public-listed entities and the proposal to list its upstream operation to raise money for the Federal Government. This concept of amanah is at the very core of the Petronas DNA,” Wan Zul said in a past interview with The Edge when asked to comment on the rumours about him leaving Petronas.

And cash used for posting bail is running short as donations dry up. "I personally am worried about how long the fund could go on,” said Cyd Ho, a former legislator and a trustee of the 612 Fund who was among 15 prominent pro-democracy supporters arrested in April. In just one week in mid-May, at least 34 protest-related cases were heard at various courts, involving more than 200 defendants, according to the 612 Fund. Apple Daily, owned by activist Jimmy Lai, started a paid subscription last June and has donated HK$1.35 million ($175,000) to 612 Fund, according to the fund’s public record.

PARIS (Reuters) - France demanded on Friday that Franco-Iranian academic Fariba Adelkhah, whom Tehran has sentenced to six years in prison, be released immediately, saying her detention was harming trust between the two countries. "One year ago, Farida Adelkhah was arbitrarily arrested in Iran. "My message to Iranian authorities: justice demands that our compatriot be immediately released." Iran does not recognise dual nationality and has rejected previous calls to release the 60-year-old anthropologist, detained since June 2019, saying the demands were an interference in Tehran's internal affairs. In March, the two countries carried out a prisoner swap, exchanging academic Roland Marchal for engineer Jalal Ruhollahnejad.

It turns out that the Covid-19 era has led to an explosion of innovation and rapid growth for dozens of smaller technology companies. There’s a flaw in the concept that Big Tech can easily expand into new markets by leveraging the power of their core businesses. The reason is all companies – big or small – have finite top-tier engineering talent. Since then, Big Tech has taken particular aim at the software company as they sought to push their own video-conferencing tools. Gartner said the world-wide enterprise technology market was US$3.7tril last year.

There was little sign of any goodwill for his time at the Crusaders when TVNZ interviewed rugby fans on the streets of Christchurch, with Carter's picture in a Blues jersey being treated with disdain.

NASA was not aware of the video until it was posted, a spokesperson said. A spokeswoman for the Trump campaign said Wednesday the footage was collected from publicly available resources. Musk and SpaceX did not respond to requests for comment on the ad, which also features several of the company’s employees. Trump’s attempt to seize on the milestone space launch has been drowned out by coverage of his administration’s handling of the civil unrest that erupted after George Floyd, an unarmed black man, died at the hands of Minneapolis police officers. The campaign video has about 26,000 views on YouTube.

His name was Datuk Rastam Hadi. Ever since his retirement from Petronas in 1989, my father lived a quiet life behind public scrutiny – people did not know much about him. He had a lovely sense of humour and often came up with jokes during dinner with family or friends. During my primary school days, dad implemented a strict protocol and taught me to be cautious in my expenditure. And for the first time in my life, I saw tears running down his face.
