- The Metropolitan Police commissioner, Dame Cressida Dick, confirmed on Thursday that the force is conducting a review into the allegations of sexual assault against Prince Andrew, declaring that “no one is above the law.” Dick’s comments were in response to the filing of a lawsuit in a US court by Virginia Giuffre, accusing Prince Andrew of sexual assault, battery and inflicting emotional distress on her when she was 17.
- The director of an aerospace firm that works on contracts from the Russian government has been detained by the country’s top security service, the FSB, after reportedly sharing sensitive information relating to its high-tech work. In a statement to TASS on Thursday, an unnamed official confirmed that Alexander Kuranov, the boss of engineering firm NIGS, is being held by authorities. The press service of the Lefortovo Court in the capital later confirmed that prosecutors are seeking to keep him behind bars initially for two months while a case is being prepared against him for alleged treason. A source in the security services said that the company had been working on hypersonic aircraft, capable of flying many times faster than the speed of sound.
- Another three Sydney areas were placed under a strict lockdown on Thursday, putting the total number of districts living under the sweeping restrictions at 12. New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the extension of the measures is necessary, insisting that restricting movement is nevertheless necessary to “stop the front of the spread moving forward.” Although Sydney, a city of around 5 million people, has been living under lockdown since June 26, the draconian measures have so far borne little fruit in terms of reducing the number of cases to near-zero – the stated goal of the Australian authorities. On Thursday, the state reported 345 new cases and two deaths from the virus.
- A bipartisan group of US lawmakers introduced a bill to curb the monopolistic policies of Apple and Google regarding their respective app stores which, they claim, hinder free competition. “I found this predatory abuse of Apple and Google so deeply offensive on so many levels… Their power has reached a point where they are impacting the whole economy in stifling and strangling innovation,” one of the lawmakers behind the initiative, US Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, said in an interview on Wednesday, as cited by Reuters.
- An oil spill in the Black Sea near the Russian port town of Novorossiysk could be 400,000 times larger than initially claimed by the owner of the marine terminal where it occurred, Russian scientists revealed on Wednesday. According to the press service of the Space Research Institute at the Russian Academy of Sciences, satellite imagery shows that Saturday’s oil spill from the Greek tanker Minerva Symphony has contaminated an area of 80 square kilometers. The oil slick on August 8 was reached 19 kilometers from the shore into the open sea.
- A new alleged victim of convicted pedophile Jeffery Epstein has launched legal action in Manhattan Supreme Court, reported the New York Post. Under the alias of Alice Poe, the woman filed the anonymous lawsuit on August 10, claiming the late hedge fund tycoon abused her from when she was in high school. The lawsuit is cited as stating that the under age “victim” was trafficked out for sex to New York “under the guise of being recruited to work”. After she arrived in the city, the “young, vulnerable and struggling financially” woman was repeatedly sexually abused and raped by billionaire Epstein “on a continuous and systematic basis from 2003 through 2010,” state court documents.
- Hunter Biden, appears to have interesting relations with laptops full of sensitive information. The first one had purportedly been left in a computer store in Delaware. The second was seized by federal agents. But the laptop saga appears to be far from over. Hunter Biden claimed that Russian drug dealers had stolen a laptop from him for blackmail purposes when he was in a Las Vegas hotel, almost overdosed, Daily Mail reported Wednesday. Neither Hunter Biden nor the rest of the family has commented on the report about a third laptop.
- Meghan Markle was very upset to learn that her name was not even on the initial list of invitees for the 60th birthday of ex-US President Barack Obama, according to writer and royal biographer Angela Levin, cited by The Sun. “I am told that despite claiming she was unable to attend, Meghan desperately wanted to be the special guest at the Obama’s amazing party,” Levin said.
- [Asteroid Of The Century] Bennu, an asteroid measuring half a kilometre in width, has a one in 1,750 chance of crashing into the Earth between now and the year 2300. A study by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) released on Wednesday reveals that the chances of such a collision occurring are now greater than previously thought. The US space agency has even predicted a date – 24 September 2182 – as the likeliest time for a collision to occur.
- Thus far, there are only four finds of cave lion cubs, ‘all in varying states of preservation’, and Sparta ‘is arguably the best preserved Ice Age animal ever found’, according to the Centre for Paleogenetics in Stockholm. Sparta, earlier named ‘Spartak’ and originally believed to be male, was discovered in 2018, only 15 metres from the previous find, a mummified body of a cave lion cub named ‘Boris’. They seemed to be siblings but the new research establishes beyond doubt that they are not: indeed, they were born and died 15,000 years apart.
- An Indian scientist from the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay has developed wearable sensors that can be used to diagnose heart rate variability (HRV) in humans. The scientist, Dr. Dipti Gupta, developed the low-cost and flexible sensor that can be used for small- and large-scale motion monitoring with potential applications in robotics, prosthetics, minimal invasive surgery, and the identification of tumours and cancerous cells. “Dr. Dipti Gupta has fabricated these tactile (pressure and strain) sensors using low-cost polyurethane foam and nanomaterial-based inks that can coat several substrates with support from the Advanced Manufacturing Technologies programme of the Department of Science & Technology (DST), Government of India,” the country’s Ministry of Science and Technology said in a statement on Thursday.
- The Taliban allegedly brought down an Iranian tactical reconnaissance drone – named the Mohajer-2N – in the western province of Farah on Wednesday. Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said that cadres have seized a drone in bordering area with Iran. “It is under investigation how the drone entered Afghanistan airspace,” he added. Earlier in the day, while taking control of Kunduz airport, the Islamist group also seized a Soviet era Mi-24V attack helicopter with the serial number 123. India gave four such attack helicopters to Afghanistan Air Force in 2019 as a replacement for the four attack helicopters previously donated in 2015.
