DJ Khaled helps Demi Lovato celebrate 6 addiction-free years

NEW YORK: Palestinian-American DJ-producer DJ Khaled is currently on tour with the hugely successful US pop singer Demi Lovato.
On Friday night, the pair performed a show that marked Lovato’s sixth year of freedom from drug and alcohol addiction.
“What you’ve overcome through trials and tribulations, through dark clouds, you found the sunshine, and now the sun is shining on you forever,” Khaled told Levato at the show.
“You inspire me.” After a brief rendition of “Happy Birthday” in honor of Lovato’s sixth year of sobriety, the crowd chanted “Demi!” as she sat down by the piano.
“Thank you for being a part of saving my life. I love you guys,” Lovato said, before performing the song “Warriors.”

Amputee Sumatran tiger gives birth to cubs

  • The gender of the two cubs is yet to be determined
  • There are less than 400 Sumartan tigers remaining in the wild as they are losing their habitats to deforestation

PADANG-LAWAS, Indonesia: A Sumatran tiger with an amputated paw has given birth to a pair of cubs in Indonesia, amid fears for the future of the critically endangered species.
Gadis — whose name means girl in Indonesian — delivered her babies at the Padang Lawas conservation area in North Sumatra about a month ago, conservationists say.
The tiger mom has been undergoing rehabilitation since her paw and part of her leg were amputated two years ago after getting caught in a trap for catching wild boars.
“Gadis... has now recovered and is healthy, giving birth to the two cubs,” said reserve head Parta Basmeli Siregar.
The sex of the two cubs has not yet been established, he added.
Sumatran tiger births are rare and the species is considered critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
There are fewer than 400 left in the wild and environmental activists say they are increasingly coming into conflict with people as their natural habitat is rapidly deforested.
