Major mining companies have given a "low priority" to grievances of mine-workers and mining affected communities amid the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a network of labour, environmental and human rights activists. The London Mining Network, an alliance of human rights, development and environmental activists, work in collaboration with mine workers and Indigenous communities affected by extractivist industries. Their new report Voices from the Ground: How the Global Mining Industry is Profiting from the COVID-19 Pandemic sets out what they say are worrying trends of mining corporations amid the COVID-19 pandemic, which represents "an immediate threat to the health and safety of communities" around the world. While several Annual General Meetings were replaced with online or remote events (see our write ups of the recent Rio Tinto and Anglo American AGM’s) to protect executives and shareholders from possible infection, similar care has not been taken at the majority of mines to protect mine-workers or local communities.
More than 30% of civilian pilots in Pakistan have fake licenses and are not qualified to fly, the country's aviation minister revealed. Addressing Pakistan's National Assembly, Ghulam Sarwar Khan said 262 pilots in the country "did not take the exam themselves" and had paid someone else to sit it on their behalf. "They don't have flying experience," he said. Pakistan has 860 active pilots serving its domestic airlines, including the country's Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flagship, as well as a number of foreign carriers, Khan said. PIA has grounded all its pilots who hold fake licenses, effective immediately. "PIA acknowledges that fake licenses is not just a PIA issue but spread across the entire Pakistani airline industry," spokesperson Abdullah Khan said, adding that some of the fake pilots also fly for foreign carriers.
Last year, the US Navy officially confirmed reports of its pilots encountering unidentified aircraft travelling with great speed in the area of a military exercise, later releasing official videos of the incident. The military has admitted to being unaware as to what that aircraft could have been and who controlled it. The US Senate Intelligence Committee has requested that the Pentagon and intelligence agencies unify their efforts in order to investigate all UFO encounters faced by the military so far, and then to make their findings public. The voting, which took place on 17 June but was only revealed recently, includes the request for an authorisation bill that is yet to be approved by the Senate. If passed, the Pentagon and intelligence community will have 180 days to draft a public report, which can still contain classified parts. "The Committee understands that the relevant intelligence may be sensitive; nevertheless, the Committee finds that the information sharing and coordination across the Intelligence Community has been inconsistent, and this issue has lacked attention from senior leaders", the committee commented on the proposed bill.
A huge mushroom-shaped cloud spotted 96 kilometres from Chernobyl, the site of the world’s worst nuclear disaster, has sparked hysteria among residents of nearby areas. After photos of the cloud were posted online, concerned residents of the Ukrainian capital Kiev, which is located less than 100 kilometres from the nuclear power plant, claimed that there was another nuclear accident. Others insisted that the mysterious looking cloud was of extraterrestrial origin. “Is that a UFO?”, wrote one netizen. Ukraine’s State Emergency Service rushed to soothe residents saying that the sighting has nothing to do with nuclear accidents. "Dear Friends, we urge everyone, who saw the mushroom-shaped cloud, not to panic. On the contrary you should be happy as you were lucky to witness a rare natural phenomenon called the anvil. Tell us, which one of you got scared?", the ministry wrote in a statement on Facebook.
Over the past month, the tiny Iceland has experienced increased seismic activity amid warnings of a looming eruption of Grimsvotn volcano, Iceland's most active. About 3,000 tremors have been registered over the northern coast of Iceland since 19 June, the country's meteorological service IMO reported. In particular, three quakes measuring over magnitude 5 were recorded in recent days, one of them being felt in the capital Reykjavik, located some 265 kilometres from the epicentre. Arnar Sigurðsson, the skipper of a whale watching boat who was out at sea, described the quakes as “a blow to the boat”. “I found it surprising, because we were moving very slowly. I thought the engine had malfunctioned, or something had gotten stuck in the propeller”, he said. No major injuries or damage were reported from the tremors. The series of earthquakes came amid warnings of a possible eruption from Grimsvotn, the country's most active volcano, as scientists recorded high levels of sulfur dioxide, indicating the presence of so-called shallow magma.
Despite the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Jakarta government is slated to begin construction of the new capital city in North Penajam Paser regency, East Kalimantan, as scheduled in 2021. “We're still in the planning phase. We're currently focusing on the basic design of the new capital city and drafting a capital city relocation bill with the House of Representatives,” Public Works and Housing Minister Basuki Hadimuljono said on Wednesday as quoted by kompas.com. “We hope next year we can commence construction of the new capital city.” Basuki explained that the government had cooperated with domestic and foreign investors for the capital city relocation project. The new capital city, he added, would adopt smart city technology and be eco-friendly.
Overall meat consumption began to decrease in Finland in 2019, according to Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke). Mari Niva, a professor of food culture at the University of Helsinki, believes the statistics reflect the widespread public debate witnessed in the past couple of years about the climate and environmental effects of meat. There are nevertheless signs that the role of animal-based products in diets is beginning to be questioned in Finland, added Niva. The preliminary statistics indicate that the consumption of non-fat milks has plummeted by 40 per cent in five years, while that of cheese has dropped to the levels of 2014. Oats, by contrast, is an increasingly popular ingredient on the plates of Finns. Its consumption surged by almost 30 per cent from the previous year to 9.5 kilos per capita in 2019.
Microsoft said it would permanently close all its retail stores around the world, leaving only four locations in New York, London, Sydney, and Redmond, which the company said will be "reimagined". The company said that the staff currently working in retail stores will be offered new jobs and "serve consumers, small-business, education, and enterprise customers, while building a pipeline of talent with transferable skills". Microsoft initially planned this move for next year, but the process was accelerated by the coronavirus pandemic.
NASA has launched a crowdsourcing campaign offering $20,000 to the individual who designs a toilet that will be used in the upcoming mission to the Moon. The agency said the design should not be based on current waste management technology, as it wants to make the space toilets that are currently used lighter and smaller.
At the same time, NASA noted that one should not reinvent the wheel and noted that anything which is "time intensive and complicated to use" will be less attractive. "The process for using proposed toilet designs must be relatively straightforward", the agency said in a statement.
A group of hacktivists and transparency advocates has published a massive 269 GB of data allegedly stolen from more than 200 police departments, fusion centers, and other law enforcement agencies across the United States. Dubbed BlueLeaks, the exposed data leaked by the DDoSecrets group contains hundreds of thousands of sensitive documents from the past ten years with official and personal information. DDoSecrets, or Distributed Denial of Secrets, is a transparency collective similar to WikiLeaks, which publicly publishes data and classified information submitted by leakers and hackers while claiming the organization itself never gets involved in the exfiltration of data. According to the hacktivist group, BlueLeaks dump includes "police and FBI reports, bulletins, guides and more," which "provides unique insights into law enforcement and a wide array of government activities, including thousands of documents mentioning COVID19.

On June 25, Tehran residents were treated to an unusual sight, a bright orange light in the nighttime sky over Eastern Tehran. Iranian officials soon claimed that what had happened was a mere explosion of industrial gas tanks in the general area of Parchin, the site of Iran’s vast explosives, rocket, and ammunition manufacturing complex. Yet a closer examination of videos posted on social media seemed to suggest that the blast took place in the Khojir region of Tehran, something finally confirmed by satellite pictures a day later. While Parchin has gained notoriety for its role in Iran’s pre-2003 nuclear weapons program, Khojir has generally escaped public scrutiny despite being the single most important site associated with Iran’s ballistic missile program. The vast area nestled in between the mountains of East Tehran houses various entities of the Aerospace Industries Organization, itself subordinate to Iran’s Ministry of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics. The two largest of these are the Shahid Bakeri Industrial Group (SBIG) responsible for the production of Iran’s solid-propellant missiles and the Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group (SHIG) producing Iran’s liquid-fuel ballistic missiles. Both groups, in turn, entail a myriad of sub-companies in Khojir as well as other parts of the country dedicated to the various tasks of missile production.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has released a 10-year timelapse of the Sun prepared from the data collected by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). The SDO, which has been observing the Sun non-stop for more than a decade now, captures an image of the Sun every 0.75 seconds, according to the space agency. “SDO has gathered 425 million high-resolution images of the Sun, amassing 20 million gigabytes of data over the past 10 years. This information has enabled countless new discoveries about the workings of our closest star and how it influences the solar system,” NASA said in a release.

A vast cloud of Sahara dust is blanketing the Caribbean as it heads to the US with a size and concentration that experts say hasn’t been seen in half a century. Air quality across most of the region reached record “hazardous” levels and experts who nicknamed the event the “Godzilla dust cloud” warned people to stay indoors and use air filters if they had them. “This is the most significant event in the past 50 years,” said Pablo Méndez Lázaro, an environmental health specialist at the University of Puerto Rico. “Conditions are dangerous in many Caribbean islands.” Many health specialists were concerned about those battling respiratory symptoms tied to the coronavirus pandemic. Lázaro, who is working with Nasa to develop an alert system for the arrival of Sahara dust, said the concentration was so high in recent days that it could even have adverse effects on healthy people. Extremely hazy conditions and limited visibility were reported from Antigua down to Trinidad & Tobago, with the event expected to last until late Tuesday. Some people posted pictures of themselves on social media wearing double masks to ward off the coronavirus and the dust, while others joked that the Caribbean looked like it had received a yellow filter movie treatment.

EuropeM4.5 France
North-AmericaM4.2 Idaho
Central-AmericaM4.2 El Salvador
South-AmericaM5.1 Easter Island
AsiaM5.1 India
PacificM4.9 New Zealand
Deepest-EQM4.2 484 km Izu Islands, Japan
27 JuneThis image shows the earthquakes higher than M3 that occurred from 25 June; after a powerful M6.4 in western China which occurred on 25 at 21:05 UTC, the seismic wave rebounded further west with a swarm close to the M5 in western Turkey that occurred on June 26th. On June 27, this morning, a series of shocks on the M4 filled the intermediate point in Iran and the Caucasus area. Around 11 UTC the wave overtook Central Europe with movements on the M4 in the North Atlantic off the coast of France, Spain and the Canary Islands. The part of Europe that has been affected by movements on the M3 is Greece and eastern Spain while Italy and the Balkan Peninsula have remained motionless. Normally this would be a time when we should alarm these two areas for possible movements on the mid M4 but once again the +++ intervention could mitigate this risk. Better still be prepared.
27 JuneThe series of deep earthquakes that we see in the pic occurred on June 25, on June 26 New Zealand saw a movement on the M5, the same movement on the M5 struck the intermediate point, the Kermadec Island, and occurred today June 27.
27 JuneAlso in this image we see the transit of the seismic wave that generated in the southwestern Pacific, it reached Chile and Argentina and then continued towards the final release point at the South Sandwich Islands.
