An unknown amount of people are being held hostage by a terrorist who stormed into a central Sydney cafe with a gun and forced crying women to hold a black Islamic flag up to the window. Witnesses described how a man wearing a headband covered in Arabic walked into the Lindt cafe in Martin Place and produced a shotgun from a blue bag at around 9.45am.
Shortly afterwards hostages were seen with their hands pressed against the windows holding up the Shahada flag belonging to the extremist group Jabhat al-Nusra, which is fighting the Assad government in Syria. There are claims that the terrorist is also armed with a machete and may have explosives but this has not been confirmed by police.
One of the hostage-takers has made contact with officers saying that he has ‘devices all over the city’ and ‘wants to speak with the prime minister live on radio’, according to Ray Hadley, from 2GB.
Armed police have sealed off streets around the cafe and Martin Place station is shut. Planes have been diverted away from the city centre. Stay tuned for updates.

Fights break out on the Western Illinois University campus following a Black Student Association event. According to police on scene, the fight involved “at least 50 people.” I see no police officers instigating the scuffle that occurred — but they certainly used pepper spray to prevent escalation with other protesters. Job well done, or did the police go overboard? What do you think? Leave your thoughts in our comment section now!
Everyone is well aware of the health risks associated to smoking, yet kids are still super keen to try it. Although it is okay for you son or daughter to experiment with some things, it is also a good idea to try to dissuade them to make it a regular thing. What would you do in this situation?

That old guy at 3:27 just kind of rolls end-over-end backward into some flowers and then no doubt left early to go home and watch football. I also like how at 4 minutes in some woman, feeling starved of attention, starts freaking out at the back only to get a pat on the back and generally ignored. That little black kid is already figuring out that he might be an atheist.

Ever since the L.A. BEAST was a young fella, he was never able to enjoy any cinnamon flavoured candy or gum because he would get a severe reaction causing burns all inside his mouth, and a rash on his face. In an effort to to attempt to enjoy cinnamon flavoured things for the first time in his life, the L.A. BEAST came across a special product called Miracle Berries which when dissolved on your tongue, changes the way foods taste. For example, an extremely sour lemon tastes sweet, and a Guinness beer tastes like you are drinking a chocolate milk. The stage is set, will the L.A. Beast survive?
