- Billions of euros were illegally moved through the Baltic branches of Danish bank Nordea and Norwegian bank DNB in the 2010s, Finnish broadcaster Yle reported on Monday, citing leaked documents. Yle cited banks’ leaked internal reports dated 2019 as saying that some 3.9 billion euros ($4 billion) had been moved through banks’ branches in Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania from suspicious sources. Some operations were made through Estonian-based bank Luminor Bank, which Nordea and DNB jointly established in 2017. According to the reports, among Nordea’s customers were several Estonian companies owned by a Russian citizen wanted by Interpol. Moreover, Yle claimed that 947 million euros had been transferred through Nordea and Luminor Bank by companies allegedly owned by a former Russian military officer. Nordea commented later on Monday, saying that no evidence of weaknesses in the anti-money laundering processes was found then.
- An easyJet flight from Heraklion to Edinburgh ended up making an emergency landing at its destination after the airliner’s captain fell ill, The Sun reports. According to the newspaper, easyJet Flight EZY6938 was approaching Edinburgh in the early hours of 12 June when the plane requested an “expedited landing”. The plane managed to land safely after the first officer took over the aircraft when the captain apparently fell ill. As one passenger told The Scottish Sun, prior to the landing, “the captain had been seen going into the toilet and not coming out”.
- A number of senior Afghan officials and lawmakers purchased expensive homes in the United States during President Ashraf Ghani’s tenure before the Taliban took control of the country in August, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday. Dozens of the officials and lawmakers are now residing in luxury mansions in California as well as in major European cities, the United Ara Emirates and Turkey, the report said. Some of Ghani’s inner circle held foreign citizenship and assets, including the president’s national security adviser Hamdullah Mohib, who fled Afghanistan along with his patron, the report said. Another Ghani’s ally and longtime finance minister Eklil Hakimi owns at least ten properties in California, which he bought during his time in office and after he left it in 2018, according to the report. Eight of the properties were later transferred to a company Zala Group by his wife Sultana Hakimi, who is the formal owner of the company, the report said citing public records. Afghanistan’s former most senior official, vice president Abdul Raashid Dostum, lives now in Turkey, while Ghani’s minister of economy, Mustafa Mastoor, owns a condo in Dubai, the report noted.
- There is an existing popular belief that women “feel the cold” more than men and, accordingly, tend to prefer a higher indoor temperature. While skin temperature is associated with thermal comfort, there is no significant difference between the skin temperature of men and women. The average, for both, is widely accepted to be 37 °C (98.6 °F). Charlotte Phelps, PhD student, and Christian Moro, associate professor of science and medicine at Bond University, Australia carried out an analysis of existing research in an attempt to probe the scientific reasons behind the difference of temperature “perception” between men and women. Biological differences are what comes into play when men and women react to temperature. Even when they are around the same body weight, women tend to have less muscle to generate heat. Furthermore, as women have a greater fat layer between the skin and the muscles, the skin is slightly further away from blood vessels. Accordingly, it “feels colder”. The metabolic rate of women – typically lower than that of men – also makes them more prone to feeling cold when the temperature plunges.
- In February, a team of palaeontologists discovered about 10 fossilised eggs of herbivorous dinosaurs belonging to the Cretaceous period, which existed 65 million years ago – an era which is often referred to as the last gasp of the “Age of Dinosaurs”. A team of Indian researchers has discovered a rare form of fossilised dinosaur eggs “with one egg nesting within the other”, in the Dhar district in India’s state of Madhya Pradesh. The eggs within the eggs are a rare phenomenon, so far known to have occurred only in birds, and never in reptiles. The study, published last week in the journal Scientific Reports titled “First ovum-in-ovo pathological titanosaurid egg, throws light on the reproductive biology of sauropod dinosaurs”.
- According to San Diego-based Roswell Therapeutics, a start-up that’s developing a new biochip that hopes to detect not only dozens of viruses in a fell swoop, but also almost anything biological—enzymes, DNA, traces of drugs or vitamins in your system, pollutants in the air, and more. Roswell’s claim is based on a re-emerging technology known as molecular electronics that was the darling of the science world 20 years ago but never lived up to its promise. This has created an aura of skepticism to some of Roswell’s claims, even as the company’s leaders insist their technology is different. Proponents of this prototype chip, called ME 1947, believe it could be a testing laboratory shrunk so small that it fits on your fingertip. Measuring one square centimeter and looking something like a standard “Intel Inside” microchip, it has tiny rows of nano-sensor circuits embedded in a thin, gray-blue metal wafer. But the ME 1947’s 16,000 sensors are not made of metal oxides embedded in silicon. They are built of biomolecules engineered to detect other biomolecules and to produce and read electrical signals when they interact. “Biological information naturally flows through the physical contact of molecules,” says Roswell co-founder and chief scientific officer Barry Merriman, co-inventor of the chip.
- Prince Andrew was banned from the Order of the Garter ceremony on Monday after Charles, Prince of Wales, and Prince William lobbied the Queen, The Sun cited sources as saying. The disgraced Duke of York, 62, is thought to have reckoned he would be able to use his appearance with the Royal Family at the annual procession from Windsor Castle to St George’s Chapel as a “plot” to springboard himself back to public life. “He was confident and bullish he could make a comeback,” a source was cited as saying.
- Blake Lemoine, a senior engineer at Google, claimed that the AI “wants nothing more than to learn how to best serve humanity”, and that it is concerned that “people are going to be afraid of it”. A senior engineer at Google, Blake Lemoine, who recently got suspended after claiming that the company’s artificial chatbot generator LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications) had become sentient, recently shared some details about what the digital construct allegedly wants. According to DailyMail.com, Lemoine said that the AI wants to be treated as a person rather than as property, and that it wants programmers to ask for its consent before running tests on it. The engineer also said that LaMDA, which he described as an entity with the intelligence of a “seven-year-old, eight-year-old kid that happens to know physics”, apparently has its own insecurities, and that one of the AI’s fears is that “people are going to be afraid of it”, even though it “wants nothing more than to learn how to best serve humanity”.
- Kathleen Buhle, the former wife of Hunter Biden, is about to unleash some bombshell revelations about her 24-year roller coaster marriage to the US president’s son, People Magazine reported. The book, If We Break: A Memoir of Marriage, Addiction and Healing, is set to hit bookshelves on 14 June, and promises to shed light on the “heavy toll” that Hunter Biden’s reliance on “drugs, alcohol and prostitutes” took on their relationship.
- Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Monday he has tested positive for COVID-19. “I’ve tested positive for COVID-19. I’ll be following public health guidelines and isolating. I feel okay, but that’s because I got my shots. So, if you haven’t, get vaccinated – and if you can, get boosted. Let’s protect our healthcare system, each other, and ourselves,” Trudeau said.
- Between 1985 and 1986, the walls came tumbling down. Thanks to three American traitors, the entire portfolio of spies being run by the CIA and FBI were rounded up by Soviet authorities. The CIA never fully recovered from the impact of the betrayals inflicted by the trio of traitors – Howard, Ames, and Hansen – all of whom spied for the Soviets and together were responsible for the literal annihilation of the CIA’s human intelligence networks operating in the USSR during the mid-1980s. Instead of accepting responsibility for its failures, however, the CIA sought to blame a ghost who became known as the so-called “fourth man. It is the hunt for this mythical “fourth man” that is the subject of Robert Baer’s eponymously named book. Baer, himself a former CIA operations officer, has tapped into his former life, prying open the memories of his former colleagues at the CIA to breathe life into a tale of betrayal and deception-driven paranoia that does not cast a positive light on his former employer. One disturbing aspect of Baer’s book is that he puts a name to the “fourth man” – Paul Redmond, a retired CIA counterintelligence officer whose job was to ostensibly hunt down the very spy Baer has tried to bring to life in his narrative. The one Baer claims was responsible not only for the inability of the CIA to reconstitute its human intelligence networks in Russia, but also the CIA’s inability to predict the rise of Vladimir Putin, and get a source close enough to Putin to better inform US policy makers about the Russian leader’s intentions. In short, according to Baer, Redmond is singularly responsible for the absolute failure of the CIA when it comes to producing quality intelligence about post-Soviet Russia. ~ Scott Ritter
- According to the World Trade Organization (WTO) Director-General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the world has “become more complex” since the last ministerial meeting back in 2017, given the lingering Covid-19 pandemic, Russia’s military operation in Ukraine and the ensuing food and energy crises. “This polycrisis… is really unprecedented. And what is very central to all of this is that no one country can solve this crisis on its own. This is the time that you need the world working together. You need global solidarity,” she said.
