With baby announcement, Kylie Jenner is new Instagram queen

LOS ANGELES: Kylie Jenner is the new queen of Instagram.
The reality star’s baby-name announcement became the most popular post on the social media site on Wednesday, surpassing Beyonce’s pregnancy announcement of 2017.
Jenner shared a photo on Tuesday of her new daughter’s tiny hand captioned with the baby’s name, Stormi Webster.
The post had collected 13.7 million “likes” by Wednesday afternoon, compared with 11.2 million for Beyonce’s pregnancy photo.
Born on Feb. 1, Stormi is the first child for Jenner and her boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott.
The 20-year-old Jenner is the youngest sibling in the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
She kept largely out of public view during her pregnancy.
In a social media post earlier this week, she said pregnancy was “the most beautiful, empowering and life changing experience” and that she will “miss it.”

Rare Sumatran tiger rescued from beneath shop in Indonesia

  • The three-year old male was freed from the 75 centimeter (30 inch) crawl space on Burung Island in Riau province
  • The tiger was treated by veterinarians for minor wounds on its legs and cracked canines

PEKANBARU, Indonesia: A rare Sumatran tiger that was trapped beneath the floor of a shop for three days has been rescued, an Indonesian official said Saturday.
The three-year old male was freed from the 75 centimeter (30 inch) crawl space on Burung Island in Riau province at about 1:50 am, the local conservation agency said.
“After the tiger was successfully put to sleep we opened up part of the shop’s foundation to do the evacuation,” Suharyono, head of the Riau conservation agency, told AFP.
The 80-kilo (180-pound) animal was treated by veterinarians for minor wounds on its legs and cracked canines, officials said.
The big cat became stuck between two buildings in the densely populated market area on Wednesday before freeing himself and then becoming trapped again beneath the building.
Video footage showed the tiger lying on its belly between two concrete foundations, unable to move.
The tiger has been transported to a rehabilitation center.
Sumatran tigers are considered critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
There are fewer than 400 Sumatran tigers left in the wild and environmental activists say they are increasingly coming into conflict with people as their natural habitat is rapidly deforested.
