Gayle King appeared visibly shaken on air as she discussed two incidents against black men that occurred over the weekend in the US.

The CBS This Morning anchor’s voice cracked as she admitted the day was ‘too much for me’, following videos of the death of George Floyd and a white woman, Amy Cooper, falsely accusing a black man, Christian Cooper, of threatening her in Central Park.

With the CBS anchors reporting from their respective houses, Vladimir Duthiers showed the Central Park video, in which Christian Cooper filmed Amy Cooper after asking her to put her dog on a leash, in an area of the park which requires this.

Amy Cooper went on to say: ‘I’m going to tell [the police] there’s an African-American man threatening my life’, and while on the phone to the police, she raised her voice and acted hysterical while alleging that her life was being threatened.

Duthiers pointed out that ‘throughout American history there have been innumerable examples of African Americans falsely accused who have been imprisoned, shot, lynched’, and questioned what would have happened if Cooper had not been filming.

King, 65, looked emotional as she said: ‘Again I say, thank goodness that there’s video tape. I think as a daughter of a black man and the mother of a black man, this is really too much for me today. I’m still rattled by that last story. And she’s practically strangling her dog to make these false accusations against another black man.’

Her voice breaking, the journalist continued: ‘I’m still so upset Vlad, I’m sorry, I’m still so upset by that last story, where the man is handcuffed underneath a car where people are pleading “please, he can’t breathe” and we’re watching a man die.

‘So we go from that story now to this story, where she falsely accuses a black man on television… I don’t even know what to do or how to handle this at this particular time. I am speechless. I’m really really speechless about what we’re seeing on television this morning. It feels to me like an open season and that it’s just not sometimes a safe place to be in this country for black men, and today is too much for me.’

The death King referenced was that of 46-year-old black man George Floyd, who died in Minneapolis after a white officer pressed his knee into his neck behind a squad car following his arrest.

A nine minute video which surfaced on social media shows a white officer pressing his knee into Floyd’s neck, with Floyd, lying face down on the ground, repeatedly saying he can’t breathe.

A bystander is heard saying: ‘He’s not even resisting arrest right now, bro. You’re f***ing stopping his breathing right now, you think that’s cool?’

After five minutes, Floyd appears unconscious, and the officer does not lift his knee until an ambulance arrives.

Minneapolis police claim that Floyd has resisted arrest after they attended a call over a man allegedly attempting to use forged documents at Cup Foods.

More: Racism

Four police offers have been fired over the incident.

Floyd’s death in custody has sparked protests, with celebrities sharing their outrage on social media.

Meanwhile, Amy Cooper has been fired from her job at investment company Franklin Templeton following the Central Park incident.

She told CNN: ‘I’m not a racist. I did not mean to harm that man in any way.’

Cooper also returned her dog to a shelter.

Published

on

The Indian government banned PUBG 

A ban is imposed on PUBG as well as on 118 Chinese applications.

The Ministry of Information Technology had received several complaints from various sources, stating that users’ data is being stolen incorrectly through some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms. Let me tell you that even before that 57 applications of China were banned, including Tiktok’s name.

India’s 3rd Surgical Strike on Chinese Apps

The Indian government has conducted another digital strike against China. The Ministry of Information and Technology on Wednesday banned 118 mobile applications, including the mobile game PubG. This is India’s third digital strike on China’s mobile apps. Earlier, at the end of June, India had banned 47 apps from China including Tiktok, and then 59 Chinese apps at the end of July. The government has cited national security behind this decision.

Why PUBG is banned in India Now?

The statement said that the government has banned 118 such apps which are a threat to India’s sovereignty and integrity, defense of India, the security of the state, and peacekeeping. It said that the Ministry of Information Technology (IT) has received several complaints from various sources. The complaints also include reports of some mobile app users (users) on platforms such as Android and iOS being stolen and stored on servers outside the country.

It is said in the statement that such information is being compiled, analyzed, etc., which are a threat to national security and the defense of India. These ultimately pose a risk to India’s sovereignty and integrity. This is a very serious issue, which required quick action.

According to data analytics firm Senser Tower,

PUBG Mobile is the world’s highest-grossing gaming app. PUBG Mobile’s lifetime collection is about Rs 22,457 crore.

In Wasteland 3 character building, there is freedom of choice of weapons for the gamers. Each choice has its own benefits and drawbacks.

Here is a list of all the weapons :

Pistols have high accuracy and cost a few action points fire.

Shotguns deal mediocre damage to a single target but can make up for it by hitting every enemy.

Sniper rifles are very expensive, making it hard to shoot more than once.

Assault rifles are powerful weapons with good penetration and hit chance. They don’t cost too many points to fire so you’ll be able to both shoot and move more often.

Submachine guns have short-range and don’t cut through armor very well. However, they’ll do serious damage to unarmored foes.

Bladed weapons attacks are cheap but have low armor penetration.

Blunt weapons provide powerful hits along with reliable heavy damage. Using them costs more points than bladed weapons.

Here are some sample builds based on character roles

Gunslingers should focus on coordination and luck to get an extra shot per turn and bonus armor penetration.

Tanks should sacrifice awareness, luck, and intelligence and put more points into strength and speed.

Snipers should maximize their intelligence because scoring a critical hit with a sniper rifle is so powerful.

Final Words

Well, Gamers, this is all about the Wasteland 3 character building guide. I hope you have enjoyed this brief guide.
