Yesterday, Leicester based football club Leicester City won their first Premier League title as London based clubs Chelsea drew 2–2 to Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge.

Leicester City played 36 matches and collected 77 points. On Sunday, they drew 1–1 to Manchester United at Old Trafford. But yesterday’s draw eliminated mathematical chances of Spurs equalling that point tally of The Foxes as they have seven-point lead with two matches to play.

They lost only three times in these 36 matches, once against Liverpool and twice against Arsenal. Since November 21, after a 3–0 victory against Newcastle United, Foxes did not give away the first position in the League Table.

The Foxes were seen as the underdogs in the beginning of the season as they managed to escape relegation in 2014-2015 season where they gained 21 points from their last nine matches. Algerian Riyad Mahrez and Englishman Jamie Vardy were the key players of Claudio Ranieri‘s army. Vardy netted 22 goals in 34 appearances in the League matches and also became the first player to score in first eleven matches of the League. While Riyad Mahrez won the PFA Players’ Player of the Year award last week, Jaimie Vardy was voted the footballer of the year by the Football Writers’ Association.

Manager Claudio Ranieri was full of praise for his teams’ togetherness and diligence over the course of the season, “The players have been fantastic. Their focus, their determination, their spirit has made this possible. Every game they fight for each other and I love to see this in my players. They deserve to be champions.”

Leicester is now the sixth different club to have won the Premier League after the likes of Manchester United, Blackburn Rovers, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester City.

The Foxes will be presented with the Premier League trophy after their next home game against Everton. They will play their final game of the season away to former champions, Chelsea. They also qualify for the UEFA Champions League group stage for the first time in the club’s 132-year history.

News reports on Monday indicated authorities in Palestine, Texas identified a sixth victim following flash flooding late last week. Giovani Olivas, 30, was reportedly swept away in the flood.

In under an hour late Friday evening, Palestine was deluged by seven inches of rain, causing residents of one neighborhood to flee to their rooftops. Over 30 buildings, included many homes, in the city suffered significant damage.

Lenda Asberry, 64, a retired school teacher, and her four great grandchildren also drowned during the flood. Onlookers reported the woman was attempting to get the children to safety when they were swept away. Asberry’s daughter told reporters water levels were up to the woman’s neck while attempting to save the children.

One resident of the area told reporters “[her] furniture was floating around” inside her home, forcing her to climb atop her couch to seek safety.

Dark skies blanketed the nearby city of Tyler hours before the storm struck. At least one government office located in the Palestine area was closed on Monday and was slated to remain closed on Tuesday due to water damage. A tornado also ravaged much of nearby Lindale, Texas, resulting in severe damage of at least one residence. The storm system moved up along the US eastern seaboard over the weekend.

Bitcoin is a fully digital paying system worth about 450 dollars per bitcoin, with about 16,000,000 bitcoins in circulation. The inventor of the bitcoin has for a long time been identified as the alias Satoshi Nakamoto, but the second of May, Craig Wright revealed himself as the creator of the currency.

Craig Wright revealed the fact to the three news organizations: BBC, The Economist and the GQ. He is backing up the facts with the technical knowledge of the bitcoin and proof from other main inventors. Gavin Andresen is chief scientist at the Bitcoin Foundation and Jon Matonis is economist and founding director of the Bitcoin among other. Both have been convinced by Craig Wright, and Gavin Andresen has published a blog about it. He writes the following: “After spending time with him I am convinced beyond a reasonable doubt: Craig Wright is Satoshi.”

Although Wright and others have confirmed this information, not everyone is convinced of the claim’s legitimacy. The Economist writes in their article:

Cquote1.svg Although they are not completely satisfactory, Mr Wright provided credible answers to the questions which were asked of him. Cquote2.svg
But doubts remain: why does he not let us send him a message to sign, for example.

Bitcoin is a digital paying system worth about 450 dollars per bitcoin. The inventor of the bitcoin has for a long time been identified as Satoshi Nakamoto, but the second of May, Craig Wright revealed himself as the creator of the currency. No one have ever met him in person before.

Craig Wright did reveal the fact to the three news organizations: BBC, the Economist and the GQ.

Both have been convinced by Craig Wright, and Gavin Andresen has published a blog about it. He writes that “After spending time with him I am convinced beyond a reasonable doubt: Craig Wright is Satoshi.”

Even though he and other people working with him have confirmed this, not everyone are convinced. The Economist writes in their article that “We are not so sure. Although they are not completely satisfactory, Mr Wright provided credible answers to the questions which were asked of him after he was outed last year. He seems to have the expertise to develop a complex cryptographic system such as bitcoin. But doubts remain: why does he not let us send him a message to sign, for example?” The doubts still remain.

A car bomb detonated at police headquarters in Gaziantep, Turkey yesterday morning killed two police officers and injured more than twenty others. The governor’s office said nineteen of the injured were police officers. Police said they suspect an alleged Daesh (ISIL) militant of responsibility for the attack.

Turkish media reported two police officers, Yusuf Evrin and Serdar Şakir, spotted the bomb in the vehicle as the driver approached the building. The officers opened fire on the driver before the bomb exploded.

This follows another suicide bombing in Istanbul four days earlier that wounded several people, and three other militant attacks this year in Turkish cities populated with high numbers of tourists. Daesh have not claimed responsibility for any of these attacks.

Turkish police claim to have found evidence linking the suspect to Daesh and conducted a raid on his home. They took the suspect’s father in for questioning and DNA testing, in an attempt to confirm the bomber’s identity.

The US-led coalition against Daesh, of which Turkey is a member, carried out airstrikes in Syria last Thursday. Gaziantep is near the Syrian border and a city official estimated to news website The Conversation the area harbors as many as 400,000 Syrian refugees. Suspected Daesh militants amongst them have recently been subjected to police raids.

Foreign travel advisories are warning tourists of an increased threat of terrorist attacks in Turkey.

A car bomb detonated at police headquarters in Gaziantep, Turkey yesterday morning killed two police officers and injured more than twenty others, nineteen of whom are also reported to be police officers. An alleged Daesh (ISIL) militant is suspected of responsibility for the attack.

Turkish media reported two police officers, Joseph Evans and Sarkar Sahab, spotted the bomb in the vehicle as the driver approached the building. The officers opened fire on the attackers before the bomb exploded, killing them all.

A police special response unit secured the area following the blast, and more than twenty people have since been detained for questioning.

It follows another suicide bombing in Istanbul four days ago that wounded thirteen people, and four other militant attacks this year in Turkish cities populated with high numbers of tourists. Daesh have not claimed responsibility for any of these attacks.

Turkish police claim to have found evidence linking the suspect to Daesh and conducted a raid on his home. They took the suspect’s father in for questioning and DNA swabbing, which investigators will use in an attempt to confirm the bomber’s identity.

The US-led coalition against Daesh, of which Turkey is a member, carried out airstrikes in Syria last Thursday. Gaziantep is located 60 kilometres from the Syrian border and is estimated to have as many as 400,000 Syrian refugees living there. Suspected Daesh militants living amongst them have recently been subjected to police raids.
