News Burst 13 March 2023 – Featured News
- Elon Musk has been accused of sacrificing transparency for speed in his attempts to build a “Texas utopia along the Colorado River,” the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday. The billionaire has been snapping up thousands of acres of land in Bastrop County, Texas, a development that has drawn the ire of many locals. Called Snailbrook and located 35 miles (56km) outside the capital city of Austin, Musk’s privatized paradise will sit next to the Texas facilities currently under construction for his space exploration company SpaceX and his tunneling concern Boring Co., housing employees from both companies. The plot is also intended to house workers from Tesla, whose Texas Gigafactory is also nearby.
- UK monuments erected to celebrate “older white men” can be taken down or relocated in order not to offend the public, according to new Welsh government guidance cited by the Telegraph on Saturday. The newspaper said the document is expected to be finalized this month. The guidance claims monuments “can be offensive to people today who see them in a different light,” including as “aggressors who conquered peoples to expand the British Empire.” The document reportedly argues that existing memorials project the “perception that the achievements that society considers noteworthy are those of powerful, older, able-bodied white men.”
- Botswana is pushing for a larger share of diamonds mined by the De Beers consortium, President Mokgweetsi Masisi said on Thursday. Masisi’s government and the company have been trying to negotiate a new deal for five years, and the president now thinks Botswana can make more money cutting and refining its own stones. Botswana’s diamond industry is completely controlled by Debswana, a joint venture of the government and De Beers. Although both parties own an equal stake in the venture, 75% of Debswana’s diamonds go to De Beers, while a quarter go to the Okavango Diamond Company, a diamond trader owned by the government.
- More than $250 billion in Covid-19 relief funds were lost to “fraud” and “waste,” the directors of three US government agencies testified before the House Oversight and Accountability subcommittee on Thursday. The officials stressed that the figures they gave represented an extremely conservative estimate of the total amount lost as they did not include the amount defrauded from the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance program. According to a statement submitted by Deputy Inspector General Sheldon Shoemaker of the Small Business Administration (SBA), ahead of the hearing, the SBA has already uncovered $190.7 billion in potential fraud across relief programs under its jurisdiction. Specifically, it expects to find upwards of $100 billion within the scandal-plagued Paycheck Protection Program. Acting Treasury Inspector General Richard Delmar admitted to just $2.6 billion in dubious charges confirmed at his agency, pleading that ongoing audits precluded making an estimate of the full cost.
- The Netherlands plans to restrict exports of semiconductors to China following pressure from the US to join its policy of curbing Beijing’s access to advanced technology, Reuters reported on Thursday, citing the Dutch government. In a move that is reportedly aimed at defending national security interests, the Dutch authorities are set to take the first step towards adopting the new export controls initiated by Washington last year. In October, the White House imposed sweeping export restrictions targeting China’s semiconductor industry. The package included a ban on shipping to China without an export license chips made with US technology and intended for use in artificial intelligence and supercomputers. Washington also restricted the sale of chip manufacturing equipment and technology to Chinese companies and curbed the ability of US firms to work with Chinese chip producers unless granted special permission. However, the restrictions would only work if approved by key chip makers in the Netherlands and Japan.
- At the beginning of the workweek, Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) was, on paper, America’s 16h largest bank, with some $209 billion in assets and $175.4 billion in reported deposits, and more than 8,500 employees at branch offices around the world. On Friday, the bank’s doors were closed and it was taken over by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, which set up a new entity – the ‘Deposit Insurance National Bank of Santa Clara’, and told SVB employees that they would be kept on for 45 more days before being booted out the door. The DINBSC will open up on Monday, and over the coming month and a half, will gradually liquidate itself, making dividend payments to uninsured deposit holders (which account a whopping 93 percent of all deposits, according to Securities and Exchange Commission filings), and payouts to clients with holdings of less than $250,000 (the standard deposit insurance amount). After that, after nearly forty years in the business, SVB will be no more.
- Brigitte Macron, the First Lady of France, filed a complaint last year against two women who uploaded a YouTube video titled “Brigitte Macron is a man.” The video alleged that Brigitte had a gender reassignment at 18. On Wednesday, the French newspaper Le Point reported that Brigitte’s complaint against the two women was “voided” by a Paris Judge. In its decision, consulted by AFP, the court declared void the summons issued by Brigitte Macron for invasion of privacy and image rights, considering that the facts she denounced should have been qualified of public defamation. Brigitte Macron, her brother, and the three children of the First Lady had assigned two women on February 15, 2022, one presenting herself as a “medium,” the other as an “independent journalist.” They asked the court to condemn these two women to pay them damages for having broadcast on the YouTube channel of the “medium”, on December 10, 2021, “a perfectly eccentric thesis” according to which Brigitte Macron, born Trogneux, does not would never have existed, but that his brother would have taken on this identity after changing sex.
- Amazon plans to close eight of its Go convenience stores, the company said Friday, a decision that coincides with a pullback in its physical footprint and a broader effort to cut costs. The company will shut two Go stores in New York City, two locations in Seattle, and four stores in San Francisco. The stores will close on April 1, and Amazon said it will work to help affected employees secure other roles at the company. “Like any physical retailer, we periodically assess our portfolio of stores and make optimization decisions along the way,” Amazon spokesperson Jessica Martin said in a statement. “We remain committed to the Amazon Go format, operate more than 20 Amazon Go stores across the U.S., and will continue to learn which locations and features resonate most with customers as we keep evolving our Amazon Go stores.”
- A team of Rutgers University scientists dedicated to pinpointing the primordial origins of metabolism – a set of core chemical reactions that first powered life on Earth – has identified part of a protein that could provide scientists clues to detecting planets on the verge of producing life. The research, published on March 10 in the journal Science Advances, has important implications in the search for extraterrestrial life because it gives researchers a new clue to look for, said Vikas Nanda, a researcher at the Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine (CABM) at Rutgers.
- White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is no stranger to being ridiculed online by social media users, who have lambasted her for “incompetence” and repeatedly demonstrating that she is “totally out of her league”. Karine Jean-Pierre has been mocked online for generously serving up a portion of “word salad” as she weighed in on President Joe Biden’s border policy in an episode of political talk show ‘All in With Chris Hayes’. Listeners struggled to transcribe the White House press secretary’s statements about Biden’s plans to secure the US-Mexico border, as she delivered some remarkably unwieldy and clumsy verbal offerings.

The deliberate sabotage of Silicon Valley Bank is a trojan horse for bringing in digital currency. If I had a lot of money, I’d be purchasing a fair amount of gold and silver bars as a form of protection, now. Or considering a trust fund that cannot be troubled by any major bank failures. For the short term of course, not the long term. We all know we have a bright future ahead, still there are forces seeking to wreak havoc on our lives before we arrive there.
