- A recent study of 2,500 workers in Iceland—more than 1% of the workforce—was conducted to see if shortened workdays lead to more productivity and a happier workforce. Iceland, similar to other Nordic countries, such as Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland, offers generous social services for its citizens. The country has a strong healthcare system, income equality and paid parental leave for mothers and fathers. Nearly 90% of the working population now have reduced hours or other accommodations. Worker stress and burnout lessened. There was an improvement in work-life balance among the respondents.
- Yakutia – Today Kolyma highway, the major road connecting republic’s capital Yakutsk and the port town of Magadan on the Sea of Okhotsk, had to be shut because the fire got too close to the road and was much too fierce for safe driving. A cloud-spiking An-26 Cyclone plane was deployed today to induce rain in north-western Yakutia, currently one of the most affected by the wildfires.

- Australia’s latest ‘expert-imposed’ lockdown of its most-populous city – Sydney – is growing increasingly authoritarian as Australia’s conservative PM Scott Morrison dispatches another 100 police officers to Sydney to enforce the lockdown measures, reviving complaints that Australia’s enforcement of its COVID measures has been unnecessarily heavy-handed. Starting at 0700 local time on Friday, more than 100 additional officers will be stationed on the streets of Sydney, where they will continue to work for the remainder of the lockdown (which was just extended by two weeks), according to local press reports.
- Earlier this year, State Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, unveiled a bill to decriminalize the personal possession of several psychedelic drugs, which has gained traction through the California State Assembly. “This bill would make lawful the possession for personal use, as described, and the social sharing, as defined, of psilocybin, psilocyn, dimethyltryptamine (DMT), ibogaine, mescaline, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), ketamine, and 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), by and with persons 21 years of age or older,” the bill wrote.
- Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak embraced the “right to repair” movement in a Cameo video. He said Apple itself wouldn’t have existed without an open technology world. “We wouldn’t have had an Apple, had I not grown up in a very open technology world,” said Wozniak. “Back then, when you bought electronic thing like TV’s and radios, every bit of the circuits and designs were included on paper. Total open source.” Nowadays, Apple, Microsoft, and other technology companies have strict repair restrictions on their products. He said: “Companies inhibit [the right to repair] because it gives the companies power, control, over everything.”
- The spokesman of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Friday dismissed the figure proposed by the European Union to settle the cost of Brexit.

Reacting to the statement, Downing Street said it didn’t recognise the amount.
- Russian citizen Alexander Vinnik, who was convicted in France, will be released from a French prison on 21 August and after that extradited to Greece. Vinnik was detained in Greece in 2017 at the request of the United States, which has accused him of laundering $4 billion worth of funds through the cryptocurrency trading platform. France also filed charges against Vinnik, however, his lawyer claimed that it was only a ploy to have him extradited to the United States. Russia has submitted a separate extradition request.
- Administrative authorities in India’s Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh states have reportedly started imposing fines of up to INR 5,000 ($67 approx.) as well as a week-long jail sentence for anyone found violating COVID protocols. Iva Ashish Srivastava, the District Magistrate of Uttarakhand’s Tehri Garhwal region, has announced that only 50 people can enter the premises of Mussorie city’s famous Kempty Falls at one time. Each batch of people can spend no longer than half an hour inside the waterfall region, Shrivastava said while revealing that check-posts are being set up in the region to monitor tourist activities. The decision comes after videos showing several people bathing together in the Kempty Falls, flouting social distancing, emerged online.
- India’s National Commission for Women (NCW) on Thursday raised the alarm over a now disabled mobile application called “Sulli Deals”, which put Muslim women up “for auction”. Photos of Muslim women, including prominent journalists, activists, and researchers, appeared on the app with derogatory remarks. NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma has issued a statement and sought intervention to investigate the matter, asking the Delhi Police to file a criminal case “so that [the] perpetrators [will] be punished”. Meanwhile, the women’s rights body also directed the Delhi Police to submit a report regarding the action taken against the culprits in the matter within 10 days.
