Demi Lovato falls on stage

Gorkha Post



LOS ANGELES — Singer Demi Lovato tripped and fell on her knees while walking on the stage and waving to the crowd during a performance.

Sporting casual outfits consisting of a jacket over a black top and matching pants, the singer was walking on the stage and waving to the crowd of around 16,000 students before she tripped and lost her balance at the 2016 WE Day in California on Thursday, reports

“I’m okay,” she assured everyone in attendance as she sat on the floor and raised her hands up in the air while smiling widely. Similar incidents have happened to Lovato several times before. Last December, she slipped and ended up on her back on the stage during a live appearance at New York City’s iHeartRadio Z100 Jingle Ball.

A few months earlier, she took a nasty fall during a performance at a pool party to promote her single “Cool for the summer”. The annual WE Day event celebrates youth who are making a difference in their local and global communities. The 2016 edition was also attended by Paula Abdul, Tyrese Gibson, Ian Somerhalder and many more. Lovato served as a performer as well alongside Selena Gomez and Big Sean.

Magnitude 8.2 quake rattles Fiji

Thompson Reuters



A massive quake of magnitude 8.2 struck in the Pacific Ocean close to Fiji and Tonga on Sunday but it was so deep that it was not expected to cause any damage, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said.

The US Tsunami Warning Center also said the quake was too deep to cause a tsunami.

The quake was 347.7 miles (560 km) below the Earth which would have dampened the shaking at the surface.

“I would not expect any damage. People will feel it but it’s so deep that I would not expect any damage,” USGS geophysicist Jana Pursley said by telephone.

The quake was initially reported as a magnitude 8.0 and then upgraded to 8.2, a magnitude that could cause tremendous damage had it not been so deep.

The epicenter was located 167 miles (270 km) east of Levuka in Fiji and 275 miles (443 km) west of Neiafu in Tonga.

The area is located on the earthquake-prone Ring of Fire.
