In 1933, Lina Medina was born in Ticrapo, Peru. At the age of five years, Lina was brought to hospital by her parents who complained of abdominal extreme growth. The girl’s parents initially thought their daughter was suffering from a massive abdominal tumor, but after being examined by doctors in Pisco, Peru, they discovered she was seven-months pregnant.
Lina was born with a rare condition called “precocious puberty”. Precocious puberty is basically the early onset of sexual development.
Lina had experienced her first menstrual cycle when she is 8 months. She had fully developed breasts by the age of four. Within five years, her body displayed pelvic widening and advanced bone maturation.
Lina Medina officially became the youngest confirmed mother in medical history, aged five, seven months and 21 days. She gave birth to a boy by a caesarean section on May 14, 1939.
The child, weighing 2,700 grams, was well-formed, in good health and was named Gerardo after the doctor who delivered him. Child and mother were able to leave the clinic after only a few days.
Lina Medina never revealed who the real father of her child is, or the circumstances surrounding its impregnation.
Gerardo was raised believing that Medina was his sister, but found out at the age of 10 that she was his mother. He led a healthy life until 1979, when he died from bone marrow disease at the age of 40.
Medina later married Raúl Jurado and in 1972 had a second son.
Sri Lankan Muslims scared to go out
Nothing is worst than insecure at our hometown. The blast at Sri Lanka shook the life and questions the survival of other casts.
Mohamed Hasan has barely left his home in Colombo since a string of deadly blasts hit Sri Lanka on Sunday, afraid he could be attacked because he is Muslim. He has a job at a printing press, but the 41-year-old’s family have begged him to stay home.
“They are worried that if I go out, will I be able to come back alive?” he told AFP outside the Jumma mosque in Dematagoda, where he had ventured briefly to pray.
More than 350 people were killed ans 500 are injured in the carnage unleashed by the Easter attacks against churches and hotels, which have been claimed by the Islamic State group. The deaths have horrified Sri Lankans and been condemned by Muslim groups, but many in the community have been left feeling vulnerable. Zareena Begum, 60, said she had barely slept since the weekend. “I know people are angry at Muslims,” she said in tears outside the mosque.
“Infants being carried in the arms of their mothers were killed. “I never imagined such hatred being there in the hearts of these people (who attacked). Hatred must not sow more hatred.” Wearing a black dress and white headscarf, Begum added: “We have been huddled at our homes. We are scared about going out.” Sri Lanka’s population of 21 million is a patchwork of ethnicities and religions, dominated by the Sinhalese Buddhist majority. Muslims account for 10 per cent of the population and are the second-largest minority after Hindus.
Around seven per cent of Sri Lankans are Christians. Ethnic and religious tensions abound in the country, which suffered through a decades-long Tamil insurgency and more recently has seen outbreaks of sectarian violence. Muslims have been on the receiving end of sporadic violence and hate attacks since the civil war ended in 2009. Hardline Buddhist monks have led campaigns against the community, and in 2013 and 2018, Muslim businesses came under attack. Rumours were even spread that Sinhalese could become sterile if they wore underwear bought from Muslim shops, and that food sold by Muslims would cause infertility. In the wake of the attacks, Sri Lankan leaders including Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe have urged calm and solidarity.
“The vast majority of Muslims condemn this and they are as angry as the Tamils and the Sinhalese about what happened,” he said on Tuesday, calling for unity. But at the Jumma mosque there was an atmosphere of anxiety, and several worshippers said they hoped police would “take care of every citizen in such critical times”. Hilmy Ahamed, vice-president of the influential Muslim Council of Sri Lanka, said the community was braced for a backlash, with emotions running high.
“Hundreds of people are being buried (so) there is going to be an emotional outburst and some of it could be justifiable,” said Ahamed. “We have asked the government… to ensure security is maintained. This (attack) has not been carried out by the Muslim community but by some fringe elements.” In fact, Ahamed and other Muslim leaders said they had warned Sri Lankan authorities years earlier about the leader of the National Thowheeth Jama’ath (NJT), a group the government says is its key suspect in the attacks. The group’s leader, Zahran Hashim, was well known to Muslim leaders as an extremist.
“This person was a loner and he had radicalised young people in the guise of conducting Koran classes,” Ahamed said. Back at the mosque, R F Ameer said the community just wanted safety. “We are living in constant fear because if someone sees us wearing the skull cap they will perceive us to be their enemies,” he said, his forehead creased with worry. “But we want to tell everyone we are not your enemies. This is our homeland, it is known as the pearl of Asia. We want it to remain like that.”
Weird: Kung fu master inhales liquid from nose and squirt it out of eyes
A Chinese kung fu master has gone viral for displaying what he calls an ancient art – inhaling liquid from his nose and squirting it out of his eye. Zhang Yilong, a martial arts specialist from Xinxiang, China, showed off his ability to shoot liquid out of his eye in a video that has been shared thousands of times online.
For his first trick, Zhang inhaled water from a glass and shot it out of his eye to water a bunch of roses. For his second, more complex trick, he shot liquid out of his eye to spell out Chinese characters on a piece of paper.
How does this trick work? Ruptly explains that the key is to snort liquids up your nose and then up through a duct connecting it to the eyes. When the liquid cannot escape out of it or the mouth, pressure builds inside of the nose. The liquid has to go somewhere, so it squirts out of the eye.
However, Zhang warns against trying the trick at home. “I want to remind the audiences not to emulate me. It’s dangerous. I’ve been practising for more than ten years. Please don’t imitate me, especially children,” he says.
How can you update Aadhaar details online?
Aadhaar is the 12-digit number issued to the citizens of India by Unique Identification Authority Of India (UIDAI), which also has biometric data linked to it. More importantly, Aadhaar is linked to a host of government subsidies and benefits and is a crucial document for many citizens.
The government has also made it mandatory to link Aadhaar with an individual’s permanent account number (PAN) card, so the demographic details must need to match across the documents. A registered mobile number is also needed for accessing Aadhaar services online. In case, one needs to update their demographic details on the Aadhaar card such the adddress, here are the procedures to follow:
Many times, we settle in different cities or towns for work, business or marriage, in such cases we need to update our address. Anyone can update their address online with the help of their registered mobile number using Aadhaar self-service Portal. However, a registered mobile number is a must as the user will receive a one-time password (OTP) for logging in.
First of all, the user will need to visit https://uidai.gov.in/ and click on ‘Update your address online’ option under the ‘Update Aadhaar’ section, this will open the Aadhaar Self Service Update Portal on a new tab.
In this, the portal will provide two options to the users through which they can update their address.
Option 1 – Updating with a valid address proof
- Log in using their Aadhaar number, CAPTCHA image and OTP and click on ‘Update Address via Address Proof’ tab
- Enter the latest/updated address and click on the Preview tab.
- It will show the preview of the new address, select the checkbox below and click on Submit tab.
- Select the Document type such as passport, bank statement, ration card, voter’s id card etc. and upload the scanned copy of the document and click Submit tab.
- The page will generate a URN (Update request number). Write this down or click a photo of it for future reference.
In case a user does not have valid address proof, they can still get their address updated online with the help of Address Validation Letter sent by UIDAI.
In order to request an Address Validation Letter, the resident must get consent from an address lender or verifier who would allow Aadhaar registered address to be used by the resident. An address lender or verifier could be a family member, relative, friend, landlord, etc. where the resident is currently residing.
Option B – Updating with an address validation letter
- Log in using their Aadhaar number, CAPTCHA image and OTP.
- Enter Secret Code (received on letter)
- Preview the address
- Submit the request and save the URN
How to update mobile number and name on Aadhaar card?
One thing which must be noted is only the address of the Aadhaar cardholder can be corrected or updated online. For changes in biometric or other demographic data such as name, date of birth, gender, relation, mobile and email, the resident will have to visit UIDAI enrolment centre. You can search for the nearest enrolment centre by clicking on the ‘Locate Enrolment Center’ on uidai.gov.in. Original documents are mandatory for updating at an enrolment centre which will be scanned and handed back to the user after the updation. The list of supporting documents contains passport, voter id, driving license to name a few.
