- Nigerian Army and allied forces slaughtered children during their grueling 13-year war against Islamist extremists in the country’s northeast. An international news agency, Reuters, has accused the Nigerian Army of killing children in its war against Islamist insurgents in the country’s Northeast.The report based its findings on more than 40 soldiers and civilians who said they witnessed the military kill children or saw children’s corpses after a military operation. These sources included both parents and other civilian witnesses, as well as soldiers who said they participated in dozens of military operations in which children were slaughtered. Together, their estimates added up to thousands of children killed. Reuters said it investigated six specific incidents and found, based on eyewitness accounts, that a total of at least 60 children were killed in those episodes, the most recent in February 2021.
- About 150 million barrels of net oil reserves were discovered in Gabar Mountain, in Türkiye’s southeast province of Sirnak, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced on Monday following a meeting with his Cabinet of Ministers. The find, said to be one of the ten largest onshore discoveries of 2022, is worth about $12 billion, the president stated.
- The European Union’s credibility is at stake, EU foreign ministers warned, following allegations Qatar lavished cash and gifts on European Parliament officials to influence decision-making. Greece froze the assets of a key suspect in the case, Eva Kaili, a vice president in the European Parliament and one of four people arrested and charged in Belgium over the weekend. The European Parliament took steps to strip lawmaker Eva Kaili of her senior assembly post after she and others faced charges that World Cup host Qatar lavished them with cash and gifts to influence decisions, charges she has denied.
- “The United States still essentially occupies Germany, Japan, the Republic of Korea, and other countries. At the same time, it cynically calls them equal allies… What kind of cooperation is that?”. This question was posed by Russian President Vladimir Putin during his speech in the Kremlin on September 30, 2022, when agreements on the entry of the new regions into the Russian Federation were signed. The Russian president did not go into further detail, but Western Europe’s strongest country, Germany, increasingly acts against its national interests. Berlin coordinates its foreign policy course with Washington not only at regular NATO and G7 summits, but also through more private channels. One of these is Germany’s foreign intelligence service, officially called the German Federal Intelligence Service (BND).
- Teasing revelations about the pandemic-related censorship, Musk tweeted on Saturday that his pronouns are “Prosecute/Fauci.” The post went beyond viral, garnering more than 1.2 million likes so far – and attracting the attention of White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. “These attacks, these personal attacks that we have been seeing, are dangerous – on Dr. Fauci and other public health professionals as well. They are disgusting, and they are divorced from reality,” Jean-Pierre told reporters on Monday.
- A satellite image shows an overview of the crude oil spill along Mill Creek following the leak at the Keystone pipeline operated by TC Energy, in Washington County, Kansas, December 10, 2022. Kansas residents near the site of the worst U.S. oil pipeline leak, and investigators searched for clues to what caused the spill. Spills from TC Energy Corp.’s Keystone pipeline have been increasing in severity in recent years, to the point that the pipeline’s safety record is now worse than the U.S. average, U.S. government data shows. The 4,324-km pipeline — which is owned by Canada’s TC Energy and helps to move Canadian and U.S. crude oil to markets around North America — suffered the worst leak in its history last week, when approximately 14,000 barrels of oil spilled into a creek in Washington County, Kan. And even before the most recent event, the Keystone pipeline’s safety record had been deteriorating, according to a report released last year from the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GOA), a congressional watchdog agency.
- The three main U.S. pharmaceutical wholesalers – AmerisourceBergen Corp, Cardinal Health Inc and McKesson Corp – tightened monitoring of suspicious orders from pharmacies in July as part of a $21 billion nationwide opioid settlement with attorneys general from 46 states, the District of Columbia, and five territories. The wholesalers imposed the bans because the pharmacies hadfilled prescriptions written by medical practitioners whofrequently prescribed controlled substances or had filledprescriptions assigning both a stimulant and a sedative to thesame patient. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) identifiescombination prescriptions of stimulants and sedatives as a redflag in its guidance to pharmacies on illicit drug use.
- Supporters of Brazil’s outgoing President Jair Bolsonaro have attempted to invade federal police headquarters in the capital, in a burst of post-election violence on the day Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was certified as the country’s next president. Witnesses saw Bolsonaro supporters, many in their trademark yellow national football jerseys or draped in Brazilian flags, confronting security forces on Monday night at police headquarters in Brasilia.
- People in China celebrated the withdrawal of a state-mandated app used to track whether they had traveled to COVID-stricken areas, in the latest loosening of some of the world’s toughest anti-virus rules. China last week started axing key parts of its stringent zero-Covid regime in the wake of widespread protests against the curbs last month which had marked the biggest show of public discontent in mainland China since President Xi Jinping came to power in 2012.
- U.S. prosecutors gave more details about the criminal charges filed against FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried Tuesday, including an allegation that he made illegal campaign contributions totaling in the “tens of millions of dollars.” At an afternoon press conference, U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said Bankman-Fried engaged in a scheme starting in 2019 to defraud customers of FTX and the hedge fund Alameda Research. Williams urged anyone who believes they have been victims of the scheme to contact his office. As for anyone who did wrong, Williams said he would “strongly encourage you to come see us before we come see you.”
- Cambridge Dictionary appears to have entered the gender wars with a recent update that expands its definition of ‘woman’ to include “an adult who lives and identifies as a female” even though they “may have been said to have a different sex at birth.” Daily Caller reporter Diana Glebova responded with the observation that the entry for ‘man’ had received the same treatment, posting a screenshot of Cambridge’s definition: “an adult who lives and identifies as male even though they may have been said to have a different sex at birth.
- Former US Navy SEAL Chris Beck, who came out as transgender in 2013, has told the New York Post that teenagers should think twice before trying to change their gender. Beck accused doctors who perform such procedures of “butchering children.” Beck served in the US military for 20 years, completed 13 deployments, and was a member of SEAL Team Six – the unit that famously killed Osama bin Laden. Upon leaving the military in 2013, he declared that he was transgender and would live as a woman. Kristin Beck – as he called himself at this time – told conservative podcaster Robby Starbuck earlier this month that this process “destroyed my life.” Beck said that he was “propagandized” into transitioning, and handed hormones by doctors who never questioned his underlying mental state. He stopped taking these hormones in 2015, and told Starbuck that he has “detransitioned” and is now living as a man again.
- The scientific case remains extremely compelling for suspecting that life, and possibly even intelligent life, is out there somewhere. Here’s why we must keep looking. We’ve discovered more than 5,000 exoplanets over the past 30 years, identifying many Earth-sized, potentially inhabited worlds among them. However, the fact that we haven’t met with success just yet should in no way discourage us from continuing to search for life on all three fronts, to the limits of our scientific capabilities. After all, “Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence,” and that saying certainly applies to life in the Universe. ~ Key Takeaways
