London pianist goes viral after clash with 'Chinese TV' group over livestream

tourist police app

A British piano teacher's caught-on-tape confrontation with people claiming to be associated with "Chinese TV", and the subsequent dispute over the use of their images, has led to an international crash course in how privacy laws work around the world.

Brendan Kavanagh was livestreaming a performance at a public piano at the St. Pancras International station in London when he was approached by a group of people holding Chinese flags.

When he left the piano to approach the group, the video shows group members becoming aggressive and one person shouted at Kavanagh not to touch a woman with the group when he appeared to reach at the flag she was holding.

"I mean, I think the shouty guy was on some kind of ego trip," Kavanagh told USA Today Friday. "Before he arrived, we're all getting along great."

British Transport Police intervened and an officer requests that Kavanagh not use the footage, "Because there's money being made, they work for a company, and their faces can't be shown on TV or somebody's channel."

"I had a tiny, tiny, tiny little taste of communist authoritarianism, which I've never experienced before," Kavanagh said.

Cultural clash over rights

One of the persons, which USA Today could not independently verify as being connected with "Chinese TV," says, "This is our right we are protecting and that's it ... image right. We are protecting our own image rights, you are not sharing."

The Metropolitan Police's website says , "Members of the public and the media do not need a permit to film or photograph in public places and police have no power to stop them filming or photographing incidents or police personnel."

Chinese law grants its citizens the legal right to their likeness but British law does not have an equivalent statute.

Livestream receives backlash

The video has received over 7.5 million views since it was streamed and Kavanagh said in a video posted Thursday that he has received privacy strikes on the video from YouTube.

Google, the parent company of YouTube, responded to a request for comment by pointing to the site's privacy policy but did not make any statements about the video specifically.

"This is a classic Streisand effect video," Kavanagh told Business Insider, referring to the phenomenon of information becoming more visible when it is attempted to be removed.

The group that approached Kavanagh received mockery on the Chinese social media site Weibo . "The biggest possibility is that these Chinese people don't want to be found shopping in the old capitalist world," a user with the screenname "King_Lear" wrote.

"I Lert U", Thai Tourist Police safety app for tourists

Did you know that Thailand has an app specifically designed to keep travelers safe? 

Thailand has a mobile application called "Tourist Police I Lert U". This innovation aims to provide immediate public safety assistance to tourists in need.

Using the Global Positioning System (GPS), the app can easily display the exact location of users in dangerous situations, thus improving the response time of emergency services. The app is free and available for both iOS and Android operating systems. After installing the app, users can press the Request button to request assistance.

Tourists can also send information and photos directly from the scene to the War Room, the information center of the Tourist Police Hotline 1155. This initiative is important because it allows the police to assess the situation and respond accurately.   The War Room is monitored by officers 24 hours a day to ensure that help is available at all times. When an emergency signal is received, the information is immediately relayed to the nearest police unit, which can quickly provide assistance. As part of the response process, the police will call back the registered phone number to provide initial guidance and advice.

The Tourist Police App currently supports communication in English and Thai. The aim of the app is to ensure the safety and well-being of tourists so that they can enjoy Thailand's rich culture with peace of mind. 

Travelers planning to visit Thailand can download this app to receive assistance from the Thai police in case of an emergency.

Illegal migrant asked to 'finish the job' in slaying fellow migrant at NYC shelter: prosecutor

A n illegal migrant who is accused of stabbing a fellow migrant to death inside a New York City shelter earlier this month pleaded with security guards to let him "finish the job," during the violent knife attack, prosecutors said at his arraignment on Tuesday, according to the New York Post.

The cold-blooded comments were made during the attack where Moises Coronado, 27, allegedly plunged a 5-inch blade into 24-year-old Dafren Canizalez at the sprawling Randall’s Island migrant shelter after the pair got into an argument in the cafeteria, according to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. 

The argument was sparked when Coronado allegedly made comments about victim Canizalez’s girlfriend and a fight ensued, the Post reports.

4 MORE MIGRANTS WANTED FOR SHOCKING ATTACK ON NYPD OFFICERS IN TIMES SQUARE TOURIST HOTSPOT

According to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, Coronado left and then returned with two accomplices and the trio chased Canizalez around the cafeteria wielding knives.

The trio caught, surrounded and punched Canizalez in the face and started to chase him out of the cafeteria until he was eventually blocked by a closed door.

As the men surrounded him again, Coronado allegedly stabbed Canizalez multiple times, including in the hand and the fatal stab wound to his chest. The men continued chasing him until he eventually collapsed.

Canizalez was taken to a hospital but died from his wounds. The New York Daily News reports that Canizalez was a father of three.

At Tuesday’s arraignment, prosecutors revealed the callous comments Venezuela native Coronado made during the deadly Jan. 6 attack.

Coronado "made statements indicating that he was not a punk and that because the deceased had punched him earlier he needed to get revenge and he even asked the security guards to let him go so that he could go and finish the job," prosecutor Pierre Griffith told a New York Jury, according to the Post.

Coronado was charged with murder in the second degree, manslaughter in the first degree and gang assault in the first degree.

MAN STABBED IN NECK WITH 'SHARP OBJECT' AT NYC MIGRANT PROCESSING CENTER AT RANDALL'S ISLAND

The Post reports that he pleaded not guilty to the second-degree murder charge and is facing 15 years to life in prison for the slaying. He is being held without bail.

Griffith said that Coronado entered the country through the Texas southern border and was detained in November before making his way to New York City .

Meanwhile, Coronado’s alleged accomplices, Ferney Horta and Anthony Navas, have both been charged with manslaughter in the first degree and gang assault in the first degree.

Horta, originally from Colombia, who also entered the country via Texas , entered the courtroom on crutches after he suffered a fall while being held in jail, his attorney said. He pleaded not guilty to first-degree manslaughter.

Navas, of Ecuador, also pleaded not guilty.

All three illegal immigrants are due back in court on March 26. 

"As alleged, Dafren Canizalez was brutally killed in an attack by a group, who trapped and chased him until he collapsed," Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg said in a statement.

"Everyone who comes into our city deserves to be safe, and we will continue to hold those who commit serious acts of violence accountable."

Thailand Police Launched “Tourist Police i lert u” Mobile App

tourist police i lert u

“Tourist Police i lert u” is the latest mobile application that was introduced on December 15 to provide tourists immediate access to general assistance and emergency response.  Thailand’s Tourist Police created the app to increase tourist safety by offering simple access to assistance when required. The application is released concurrently with the opening of a tourism web page portal to assist new arrivals in the country. The Tourist Police Chief described how the new application would serve tourists in times of need.

“The new app was created in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism and Sports with the goal of creating a platform that enables tourists to travel hassle-free. The ‘Tourist Police i lert u’ app makes use of GPS or Global Positioning System to locate travelers in need of assistance while traveling in Thailand. The app allows authorities to respond swiftly in emergency situations and improve tourist confidence about their safety while in Thailand.”

The application will work in conjunction with the Tourist Police’s existing 1155 call centre, with the goal of increasing awareness among tourists who to contact and how to contact them before they find themselves in an emergency situation. Currently, the contact centers support English, Chinese (Mandarin or Cantonese was not mentioned), Japanese, Korean, and Russian, with plans to add French, German, and Arabic in the next couple of months.

When an emergency response is needed, the new mobile app will connect to the 1155 contact center and first responders will contact the phone number given when the user downloaded and installed the app. They may use the GPS in the app to deploy police officers or the proper department to assist tourists. The “Tourist Police i lert u” mobile application enables users to take a picture of any occurrence and submit it to the system in order to report issues and ask for immediate assistance.

DENPASAR, Indonesia — Indonesian police said Tuesday they have arrested three Mexicans for alleged robbery on the resort island of Bali that left a tourist from Turkey badly wounded.

The arrests were made Saturday at a villa in Ungasan village of Badung district in Bali where the Mexican men had been staying since Dec. 7 as tourists, Bali Police spokesperson Jansen Avitus Panjaitan said.

The three men who were arrested and a fourth Mexican man broke into a villa near the popular tourist spot of Kuta last week after pointing their guns at a security guard and forcing him to surrender, Panjaitan said.

The four men armed with three guns sprayed bullets toward several guests who ran out of the villa for safety. The suspects stole U.S. dollars and Indonesian currency worth about $5,900 from the villa, and shot a 39-year-old Turkish man in his stomach, left hand and left back chest, police said.

The suspects planned the robbery by preparing guns and surveilling the targeted villa, police said.

How to navigate the Moscow Metro – a brief guide

tourist police app

The Moscow Metro is considered one of the most beautiful in the world, and one of the largest, with 269 stations and counting! Still, no one is immune from standing flummoxed in the middle of the platform not knowing whether to go left or right, or which of six or more exits to take to escape the subterranean maze. Our guide sheds light on some of the finer points, and will definitely make your life in the subway easier.

Floor stickers

These began to appear back in 2014, and are now visible at all the main interchange stations. Huge stickers with arrows on the floor show where you need to go to change line.

The lines are indicated by number and color, with the names written in Russian with English transliteration. For example, the number 7 in a purple circle means the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya line; it is the purple line on the Metro map.

The Moscow Metro has over 20 different types of signs, which all complement each other. So if you look at one and are still confused, try looking at another.

Metro signs answer the key question: “Which way should I go?”, and usually show the end station of the line and/or the general direction (northbound, southbound, to the city center, etc.). Some overhead signs show only the line number and the end station; such a scheme is also used in the Paris Metro.

tourist police app

There are also signs on the platform walls, which tend to be more detailed. They tell you which direction the train is headed and which stations it will stop at. The station you are currently at is marked with a rectangle in the color of the line, and all others are listed in order from top to bottom.

tourist police app

All sign information is duplicated in English: names of Metro stations in lobbies, on platforms, and in rail cars are all shown in Latin script. Stations in rail cars are also announced in two languages, Russian and English. And ticket windows with English-speaking staff are marked with the sticker “We speak English!”.

How to find the right exit

Many stations have several exits. One of the busiest central stations, Kitai Gorod, has no fewer than 15! But numbers, stands, and wall guides will help you out of the labyrinth without needing a ball of string.

Locals often use subway exits as geographical markers. For example, they might say “Let’s meet by the exit at Solyanka.” But for tourists this might not be very helpful. That said, maps showing the local area and main sights are available at exits (not all), or on round colorful stands in station lobbies and on platforms:

But since all exits are numbered, it’s best to be guided by the exit numbers.

There is often an overhead sign at exits listing the nearby sights, streets, shopping malls, and other reference points.

And on platform and lobby walls, you can see more stickers with bus, tram, and trolleybus numbers, showing the way to public transport stops.

Meeting place

The traditional meeting place in the Moscow Metro is   v tsentre zala   ("the platform center"). But recently, special stickers with the words   Mesto vtrechi   ("Meeting place") have appeared, making it easier to find one other.

Mobile apps

Some stations have a stand with a Metro map in the center of the platform and by the ticket windows in the lobby. But these days, the best way to navigate the branchy subway system is via a mobile app. Armed with one, you can work out the fastest route from A to B, calculate the journey time, see all available transfers and ground transport stops, and get notifications about temporary closures of stations and exits, etc.

MosMetro   is the official app of the Moscow Metro:

  • Download for   Android 
  • Download on the   App Store 

Yandex.Metro   is a similar app from Yandex

  • Download for   Android
  • Download on the   App Store

Some information boards provide a QR code – scan it to find out about the history of the station.
