News Burst 13 June 2021 – Featured News
- Michael Packard, a lobster diver from Massachusets, was almost swallowed by a whale on Friday, CBS Boston has reported. Luckily, he didn’t have to spend 40 days inside the belly of the beast, like Jonah the prophet, but was released after about 30 seconds. “Then all of a sudden he went up to the surface and just erupted and started shaking his head. I just got thrown in the air and landed in the water… I was free and I just floated there. I couldn’t believe … I’m here to tell it”.
- North Korean leader Kim Jong Un intensified the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) culture war against South Korean media by introducing heftier labor camp sentences for individuals caught indulging in such entertainment. While the maximum punishment was set at five years of hard labor, it is now five to 15 years. The 37-year-old leader of the DPRK recently referred to K-pop as a “vicious cancer,” that has the potential to corrupt North Korean youths with unsavory “attire, hairstyles, speeches, behaviors,” according to the New York Times.
- Thanks to pressure from the public and from animal rights organizations, two dogs in Puebla have been rescued from the sinkhole that appeared in Santa María Zacatepec late last month. The dogs, Spay and Spike, spent more than 72 hours trapped in the giant pit.
- Mexico imports large quantities of GM yellow corn, mostly from the United States, the majority of which is used as livestock fodder. But the government announced by executive order on the final day of 2020 that it aims to replace approximately 16 million tonnes of those imports with new, local production by 2024, the final year of the current administration’s six-year term. It mandated the phasing out of imports by January 2024 and decreed the elimination of glyphosate, a controversial herbicide, by the same date.
- Russian President Vladimir Putin had laudatory words for President Trump, whom he praised as an “extraordinary individual,” and only a bland comment on President Biden, who he called a “career man” in politics. “I believe that former U.S. president Mr. Trump is an extraordinary individual, talented individual, otherwise he would not have become U.S. President,” Putin told NBC News in his first interview with a U.S. news network since 2018. “He is a colorful individual. You may like him or not. And, but he didn’t come from the U.S. establishment, he had not been part of big-time politics before, and some like it some don’t like it but that is a fact.” Biden, meanwhile, “is radically different from Trump because President Biden is a career man. He has spent virtually his entire adulthood in politics,” according to Putin.
- Confirming the assessment made by President Putin that socialist leader Biden is “not normal” was evidenced yesterday when Biden got lost while wandering off during a G-7 event and had to be fetched by his wife as onlookers laughed—an embarrassing scene reminiscent of the late Russian President Boris Yeltsin, whose demented drunken antics weren’t able to be kept hidden by the entourage of hundreds of CIA agents that instructed him how to run Russia—the same CIA agents that instructed Yeltsin how to collapse the entire Russian economy in 1998.
- Saudi Arabia has restricted the annual Haj pilgrimage to citizens and residents and set a maximum of 60,000 pilgrims in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The decision was announced on Saturday (Jun 12) by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah in a statement carried by state media. The pilgrimage, scheduled to be held at the end of July, would be limited to those who have been vaccinated and are below 65 years of age with no chronic illnesses, it said. It will be the second year in a row that the kingdom hosts a downscaled Haj amid the coronavirus pandemic.
- Hong Kong activist Agnes Chow was released Saturday (Jun 12) from prison on the second anniversary of the city’s huge rallies, with police out in force and protests now all but banned. Two thousand officers have been placed on standby after social media calls for residents to commemorate the failed democracy demonstrations. Authorities have kept a coronavirus prohibition on public gatherings despite the city recording just three local infections in the last month.
- A firebrand Pakistani scholar has been detained for making death threats against Nobel prize laureate Malala Yousafzai over her comments on marriage, officials said on Friday (Jun 11). “Malala is dreaming to become the country’s prime minister but promoting obscenity,” cleric Sardar Ali told students of a local seminary in the northwestern city of Lakki Marwat last week. He added that he would blow her up in a suicide attack if she returned. Malala Yousafzai appeared on the front cover of the British edition of Vogue magazine last week dressed in a full-length designer gown and head scarf. “If you want to have a person in your life, why do you have to sign marriage papers, why can’t it just be a partnership?” she asked, in an interview where she said she was still deciding what to do after finishing her degree.
- A herd of wild elephants trekking across China took a break to forage and play in a forest in China’s Yunnan province, after one animal became separated from the group. The main herd of 14 foraged and played in the forest after passing through Yuxi city on Friday (Jun 11). The group had earlier entered and left Yunnan’s capital city of Kunming, defying attempts to redirect them after a journey of several hundred kilometres from forests to the south. One elephant had strayed 12km away from the group in recent days, according to China’s state media. The herd, which includes three calves, began its journey northwards more than a year ago, travelling from a designated elephant protection zone in Xishuangbanna, near China’s border with Myanmar. The space available for China’s last remaining native elephant community has gradually shrunk over the years, with the tropical forests of Xishuangbanna replaced with banana, tea or rubber plantations or used to plant lucrative raw materials for traditional Chinese medicine. It is unclear what prompted the herd to head north, but conservation efforts in Yunnan over the past decade have seen elephant numbers double, putting land and resources under increasing strain.
- Nearly two million people in Northern California have been placed under a water shortage emergency on Wednesday, June 9, 2021, as a severe drought continues to worsen in much of the western U.S. Mandatory water restrictions have been issued for Santa Clara County, while almost 17 million endangered salmon are being transported to the sea as rivers are drying up. Meanwhile, Lake Mead, the reservoir created by the Hoover Dam on the Nevada-Arizona border and the largest in the U.S., has reached historically low levels as the water dropped to 326.61 m (1 071.57 feet) above sea level. Meanwhile, farmers are warning that water from reservoirs is unnecessarily being let out to sea.
- Rosatom’s newly inaugurated nuclear energy complex with a BREST-OD-300 fast neutron reactor may become a breakthrough providing relatively inexpensive, safe, carbon-free, and nearly inexhaustible nuclear power as energy consumption is set to dramatically soar in the coming decades. Rosatom’s project “Breakthrough” is aimed at developing a new nuclear technology platform based on a closed nuclear fuel cycle (CNFC) with advanced fast neutron nuclear reactors. Fast reactors are touted for their ability to increase energy yields from natural uranium and utilise nuclear byproducts and spent fuel. This would allow nuclear power programmes to be extended for thousands of years, while at the same time solving the radioactive waste problem. Thus, it is hardly surprising that major nuclear countries, such as China, France, Germany, India, Japan, Russia, the UK, and the US have been developing fast neutron reactors as breeders and high-level waste burners.
- Cuban authorities have advised tourists to visit the Caribbean country without bringing any cash in dollars, which will no longer be accepted as valid currency starting from 21 June, the first vice president of the Central Bank, Francisco Mayobre Lence, said. Tourists, however, will be able to safely use cards in dollars for payments and cash withdrawals in other currencies.
- Human smugglers are using Facebook to facilitate the passage of desperate migrants into the United States for as low as $1,700 in specific cases, the Tech Transparency Project (TTP) reported after a review on the tech giant’s policy towards the content, strikingly violating its rules and escalating the ongoing migrant crisis in the US. According to the investigation, Facebook has become a “one-stop shop” for “coyote” people smugglers and violent cartels, contributing to migrants risking their lives on the risky voyage to pursue the dream of a better life. The organization mentioned beforehand, that the current investigation was a follow-up to a previous one, conducted in April. Back then, the non-profit reported that it had given Facebook information on 50 people smuggler pages at the platform’s request. After two months, the social media company has failed to delete all of them, with 19 remaining on the website. “El coyote lopez” and “Viaje para estados unidos, cumple tu sueno”, or “Travel to the United States, fulfill your dream,” are two of the more colorful group names. The publication explained that smugglers are called “coyotes” in Latin America, and there are a lot of pages under similar names. For example, a smuggler advertised transit from Nicaragua to the United States for $8,000 per person on the “El coyote lopez” page. Another advertisement promised single mothers and children a $1,700 discount if they agree to surrender themselves to US Border Patrol upon entering the country. The cost of transporting the migrants all the way to Houston jumps from $7,000 to $8,500.
- A bipartisan group of US lawmakers introduced several antitrust reforms on Friday that may soon force big tech companies to undertake a massive overhaul of their business practices and effectively break down their monopolies within the industry. The reform push by congressional lawmakers in the US House includes a total of five bills that take a direct aim at Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google, and would mark the most ambitious and comprehensive effort to reform the nation’s antitrust laws. As they currently stand, the proposals would make it much more difficult for dominant companies, such as Facebook and Google, to complete mergers or own a business that would create a conflict of interest with smaller businesses. Additionally, companies would be prohibited from manipulating online marketplaces they control in order to promote their own products, underscoring a clear nod to e-commerce giant Amazon and tech firm Apple.
- Pakistan is expected to spend more than a billion dollars in the next fiscal year to import COVID-19 vaccines to inoculate around 100 million people. The trouble is, anti-vaccine groups have sprung up around the country and have deterred some from taking the vaccine. In response, one local government in Pakistan has a new weapon in its war chest against vaccine hesitancy: disable the SIM cards of mobile phones of people who decline to get jabbed.
