News Burst 15 April 2022 – Featured News
- Elon Musk has offered to buy Twitter (TWTR.N) for about $41 billion in cash, saying the social media company he has often criticized needs to go private to see effective changes. Musk’s price of $54.20 per share, which was disclosedin a regulatory filing on Thursday, represents a 38% premium to Twitter’s April 1 close, the last trading day before Tesla (TSLA.O) CEO’s more than 9% stake in the company was made public. The billionaire rejected an offer to join Twitter’s board earlier this week after disclosing his stake in the company, a move which analysts said signaled his intention to take over the company as a board seat would have limited his stake to just under 15%.
- The New York Times reports that, according to two people with knowledge of the situation, that Twitter’s board is considering a defensive move known as a poison pill that would severely limit Elon Musk’s ability to acquire the social media giant. The directors are weighing whether to move ahead with the poison pill — formally called a shareholder rights plan — that would limit the ability of a single shareholder, like Mr. Musk, to acquire a critical mass of shares in the open market and force the company into a sale. The poison pill defense is a common tactic used by companies that want to fend off unwelcome takeover offers. It essentially lets the company flood the market with new shares or allow existing shareholders other than the potential acquirer to buy shares at a discount. This dilutes the bidder’s stake and makes buying shares more expensive.
- Rubble and ashes, overlooked by a single golden pagoda, are almost all that remain of the wood and brick houses most people had built for themselves in the quiet riverside village of Bin in the Buddhist heartland of central Myanmar. Bin is one of more than 100 villages partially or completely burned by Myanmar’s military since the start of this year, its homes among more than 5,500 civilian buildings razed as troops try to suppress opposition to last year’s coup, according to media reports collated by activist group Data For Myanmar. Dozens of satellite images reviewed by Reuters, supplied by U.S earth-imaging company Planet Labs and U.S space agency NASA, show widespread torching of villages in the central part of the country. The photos, largely confirming the local media reports, are among the strongest evidence to date that the military is using widespread arson to step up its assault on resistance in the central Sagaing region.
- Britain could send tens of thousands of asylum seekers to Rwanda to be resettled under a new partnership, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday as he outlined measures designed to tackle the problem of cross-Channel migration. “We must ensure that the only route to asylum in the UK is a safe and legal one,” Johnson said in a speech on Thursday in Kent, southeast England, where thousands of migrants in small boats landed on Channel beaches last year. Anyone who had arrived in Britain illegally since Jan. 1 could now be relocated to Rwanda, in central Africa, which would disrupt the business model of people-smuggling gangs, he said.
- Hong Kong’s citizens are reckoning with the costs of some of the world’s most stringent social distancing rules on their mental health and livelihoods. Empty streets in the financial centre, shuttered restaurants and bars, and bare supermarket shelves are a testament to the disruptions Hong Kong’s COVID-19 rules wrought on its people. Many businesses across the city have been forced to shut, including gyms, restaurants, and bars, while others say they are living on borrowed time. The landlords have not adjusted rents in one of the world’s most expensive real estate markets to account for the business slump.
- A U.S. judge on Tuesday declined a request by federal prosecutors to detain two men who are accused of impersonating federal law enforcement agents, saying the government had failed to meet its burden, and that he would release them with certain conditions.
- Igor Kirillov, head of the Russian MoD’s radiation, chemical, and biological protection forces, also told reporters on Thursday that the “American curators of biological laboratories in Ukraine were most interested in dual-use projects, many of which are aimed at studying potential agents of biological weapons, such as the plague and tularemia, as well as pathogens of economically significant infections”. Kirillov added that such projects as P-364, 444, and 781, aimed at “studying the spread of pathogens of dangerous infections through insect vectors, wild birds and bats, were funded in the interests of the US Department of Defence”. He also said that Russian intelligence found three Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) fitted with chemical sprayers in the Kherson region of Ukraine in March.
- Some $30,000 in taxpayer money is being used monthly for Hunter Biden and his family’s security. It costs $20,000 alone to rent a house near the Bidens in Malibu for Secret Service agents that are looking out for the family. The federal probe into him and his foreign income continues. Of particular importance is Hunter’s involvement in the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, where he served on the board of directors – a position that, as stated by the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, could impact US government policy with respect to Ukraine. The president and his son both denied any wrongdoing as the investigation into Hunter’s business deals forges ahead.
- While Boson Protocol is able to integrate with centralized metaverses such as Fortnite and Roblox, we believe this is only one vision of the future. We passionately believe the future of these virtual worlds will be decentralized. As we increasingly interact online, whether on social networks, e-commerce platforms or in fully functioning virtual worlds, we urgently need to prevent this dystopian future where monopolies control commerce and value-farm us all. ~ Boson Protocol
- A letter posted to Twitter April 7 by the U.S. Space Command states that Dr. Joel Mozer, the Chief Scientist of Space Operations Command, reviewed a report, “Discovery of a Meteor of Interstellar Origin,” about the emergence of the 2014 meteor from “an unbound hyperbolic orbit,” or interstellar space. This means the rock was not one of many objects counted within our solar system – instead, it came from beyond our known galactic territory. Mozer reviewed the report’s data and confirmed that the analysis by Harvard University experts Amir Siraj and Abraham Loeb accurately indicated an interstellar occurrence. Mozer’s verification means this meteor possibly preceded the only other known object to enter Earth’s solar system from interstellar space, ‘Oumuamua. This object was discovered in October 2017 and reached speeds of 196,000 miles per hour.
- Imatra, home to 26,000 people, is one of nine land crossing points along Finland’s 1,300-km (810-mile) border with Russia. Before the COVID-19 pandemic it had welcomed thousands of Russian tourists every week, arriving in Finland for shopping or spa trips or to visit friends and relatives. Finland long avoided disagreements with Russia for the sake of friendly relations, but Prime Minister Sanna Marin said on Wednesday it must be ready for all kinds of responses from Moscow now that Helsinki is weighing joining NATO. She said a decision on NATO membership would be made in the coming weeks. A top Russian security official and former president, Dmitry Medvedev, said on Thursday that Moscow could deploy nuclear weapons in the Baltic Sea region to restore military balance if NATO admitted Finland and Sweden.
