Elon Musk's son is completely changing his identity to distance himself from his father.   Xavier Alexander Musk, who has a twin named Griffin, turned 18 in April 2022.  Almost immediately after his birthday, Xavier filed a petition with the courthouse to change his gender to female and name to Vivian.  The Blast obtained the documents from the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles County at the time of their release but did not publish the documents right away to give Vivian time to come out on her own.  However, the documents have started making their way around Twitter.  Vivian's hearing is scheduled for this Friday, June 24.  Xavier Alexander Musk is requesting to change her name to Vivian Jenna Wilson.

BREAKING: Omicron: UK bows, removes Nigeria from red list

Image
The United Kingdom has agreed to remove Nigeria and other 10 countries from its travel red list from tomorrow (Wednesday).  Recall that the UK government had placed Nigeria and other African Countries on the travel red list following the confirmation of the new COVID:19 variant, Omicron in the affected nations. The move had triggered reactions from concerned Nigerians who argued that the UK government was unfair in its decision. The Federal Government had also vowed to take actions if the decision was not reversed. Speaking to the UK parliament on Tuesday, the UK Health Secretary Sajid Javid said the Omicron had spread so widely that the rules are now less effective. He added that, “Now that there is community transmission of Omicron in the UK and Omicron has spread so widely across the world, the travel red list is now less effective in slowing the incursion of Omicron from abroad,” he told the parliament. “Whilst we will maintain our temporary testing measures for international trave

           Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has urged the British government to remove Nigeria and other countries from its red list. There has been outrage over the inclusion of Nigeria, South Africa and other African countries on the United Kingdom’s red list over the Omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus. In a series of tweets on Tuesday, the Archbishop said the UK should avoid ‘travel apartheid’, echoing the words of the Nigerian High Commissioner to the UK, Ambassador Sarafa Isola. He wrote, “With Omicron set to become the dominant variant in the UK, I appeal to the British government to remove Nigeria and South Africa from the red list – together with all other countries currently on it. “We must find fair and effective approaches for those who are vaccinated and tested to enter the UK. I agree with the Nigerian High Commissioner to the UK – we cannot have ‘travel apartheid’.” Welby also stated that it was morally wrong to punish

Passengers of a plane in Nepal had to get out and push the aircraft off the runway after one its tyres burst, the Daily Mail of UK reported. Passengers on the 19-seater plane were filmed guiding the Tara Air plane to safety after it became stuck on the runway at Bajura Airport in Kolti last week. Airport officials also rushed to help the pilot as planes circled overhead waiting for the traffic to clear so they could land. The De Havilland Canada DHC-6-300 Twin Otter plane was coming in to land when it had a tyre burst. The pilot managed to touch down safely but the airport had no infrastructure to drag the plane off the runway, meaning the aircraft was stranded and causing a traffic jam. However, kind-hearted passengers were quick to react, pushing the plane off the landing strip as planes circled overhead.

Gambians began voting on Saturday in the first presidential election in the tiny West African nation since former leader Yahya Jammeh fled into exile. The voting will be closely watched as a test of the democratic transition in The Gambia, where Jammeh ruled for 22 years after seizing power in a bloodless coup in 1994. The ex-autocrat was forced into exile in Equatorial Guinea in January 2017 after Adama Barrow, then a relative unknown defeated him at the ballot box. President Barrow, 56, is now running for re-election and faces five other candidates. Polls opened at 8 am (0800 GMT), with long lines forming well before dawn in the capital Banjul. Nearly 500 people lined up around the block at a market in the Banjul neighborhood of Manjai Kunda, ready for hours of waiting. Student and part-time waitress Jariatou Touray said she had been waiting to vote since 6 am. "I'll probably be here until 10 am," the 23-year-old said. "It's very important that the citi

The United Kingdom says Nigeria will be added to the countries on its red list as a result of the discovery of COVID Omicron cases linked to Nigeria. Sajid Javid, the UK health secretary, disclosed this on Saturday in a television interview. The South Africa National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) had,  on November 25 , announced the discovery of 22 positive cases of the new Omicron variant. Following the discovery, a number of countries banned travel from countries in southern Africa. The UK had also  placed a temporary ban  on air travel from six southern African countries — South Africa, Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Namibia and Zimbabwe — with immediate effect to prevent importation of the variant into Britain. According to the new protocol announced on Saturday, non-UK and non-Irish citizens who are travelling in from Nigeria will not be allowed entry into the UK. “Over the recent days, we have learned of a significant number of growing cases linked to travel wi

China leader promises Africa 1 billion Covid vaccine doses China’s President Xi Jinping on Monday pledged to offer one billion Covid vaccine doses to Africa, in a speech made via videolink to a China-Africa summit near Senegal’s capital Dakar. The Chinese leader said that his country would donate 600 million doses directly. A further 400 million doses would come from other sources, such as investments in production sites. Xi’s promise comes as part of forum between China and African states with an emphasis on trade and security, held in the city of Diamniadio near Senegal’s seaside capital. China invests heavily in Africa, and is the continent’s largest trading partner with direct trade worth over $200 billion in 2019, according to the Chinese embassy in Dakar. Vaccination rates in Africa are low compared to the rest of the world, with many states at the mercy of foreign donations due to the lack of local production facilities and prohibitive costs of mass purchases. “We must c
