News Burst 15 June 2022 – Featured News
- After an elephant killed a woman in northern India last week, the huge mammal then showed up at her funeral and attacked her lifeless corpse, too. According to the Economic Times of India, 70-year-old Maya Murmu of Odisha’s Mayurbhanj district was ferociously attacked by a wild Indian elephant on Friday while gathering water. The woman was rushed to a nearby hospital, but her injuries were too severe and she soon died, Rasgovindpur police station inspector Lopamudra Nayak said. As is customary in India, her family elected to hold her funeral that night, building a pyre on which to burn her body. However, the elephant that had killed her showed up at the funeral while preparations were still being made and attacked once again, dragging her body off the pyre and stomping on her corpse.
- The process of yawning itself is an unintentional physical reflex. However, some animals have apparently adapted to interpret is as a tell-tale sign that something is happening to their brethren – that it either changes states, such as falling asleep or waking up, its brain temperature is rising, or that it experiences stress or reduced brain arousal – simply speaking that it is tired. The yawn is triggered in an attempt to regulate the organism’s physical state and return it to homeostasis. But, for other representatives of the same species, at least for those living and acting in groups, it’s a sign that their fellow is tired and not alert to possible danger. They thus become more alert themselves, thus making the group more prepared to react to potential dangers, evolutionary biologist at SUNY Polytechnic Institute in New York Andrew Gallupsuggested in his research.
- Dulce, an Ivy League-educated social worker, led a Drag Queen Story Hour at San Lorenzo library in California’s Alameda County on Saturday afternoon. The event was for preschool-age children and was being held in celebration of Pride Month as part of an international program. The Drag Queen Story Hour program began in 2015 and has spread to more than a dozen libraries in the Bay Area, and is a frequent feature at the San Lorenzo library.
- Canada and Denmark have at last officially agreed to split the tiny Hans Island, located in the middle of their Arctic border, between themselves. Tuesday’s binding agreement ends a decades-long territorial dispute dubbed the “whisky war” by the media, with about 60% of the island going to Denmark and 40% going to Canada. The uninhabited half-square-mile island is located in the Kennedy Channel of the Nares Strait, 1,100 km (684 miles) south of the North Pole. The channel lies between Greenland’s northwest coast and Canada’s Ellesmere Island. When the two countries agreed in 1973 to draw a border through the strait, they put off deciding who would own the barren landmass in the middle, leading to a series of petty quarrels that came to be known as the “whisky war” due to the bizarre manner in which the nations marked their territory.
- The US Air Force has determined that the crew of a Boeing C-17 military transport plane were not responsible for the deaths of Afghan civilians who tried to cling to the jet as it took off from Kabul in August 2021, amid the chaotic mass-withdrawal of US forces from the country. In a statement released to the press on Monday, Air Force spokesperson Ann Stefanek stated that the “aircrew had acted appropriately and exercised sound judgment in their decision to get airborne as quickly as possible when faced with an unprecedented and rapidly deteriorating security situation” in Afghanistan. Stefanek noted that the decision was “in compliance with applicable rules of engagement” and that the crew’s actions and quick thinking had secured their safety and the aircraft.
- A trove of data collected by the European Space Agency (ESA) through its Gaia space observatory has been released on Monday, revealing “starquakes” on thousands of stars across the Milky Way galaxy. Astronomers say the phenomenon is more like a stellar-scale tsunami than earthquakes which shake the base of a planet, as main sequence stars have no crusts (although neutron stars can undergo extremely powerful quakes).
- Instagram will prevent teen users from spending too long scrolling through posts with a particular theme, the social media behemoth announced on Tuesday, adding that the feature was being rolled out across the US, the UK, Canada, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. Teen users who are devoting what the platform judges to be “too much” time on Instagram’s Explore page looking at posts with a certain theme will be hit with a notification suggesting they look at other types of material instead. The feature “is designed to encourage teens to discover something new,” according to a statement posted by parent company Meta. Users will be prompted to “choose what to explore next” and presented with an array of different images, each leading to a topic unrelated to whatever they were previously looking at.
- Japan’s parliament passed a new bill on Monday, toughening penalties for anyone found guilty of making “online insults.” The amendment to the penal code is set to take effect later this summer. Under the new legislation, making “online insults” can attract a sentence of up to one year in prison for anyone convicted, or a fine of some 300,000 yen (around $2,200). Before the change, offenders faced only a minor fine, a mere 10,000 yen (some $75), or less than 30 days of detention. The new legislation also extends the statute of limitations from one to three years.
- A new survey by Abacus Data, a leading Ottawa-based research and strategy company, suggests conducted a nationwide survey – the second in a series called ‘Trust & Facts: What Canadians Believe’ among 1500 adults – which examined how much they trusted mainstream sources of information and government institutions. “Canadians believe that our lives are controlled by secret plots to undermine our interests,” Abacus Data said in a statement as it presented the results of the survey.
- Former US President Donald Trump has accused US Democrats of using the probe into the Capitol riots to distract Americans from the fact that their country is “being destroyed” and prevent him from running for office again in 2024. Trump made the claim on Monday in a 12-page statement, issued in response to last week’s launch of House committee public hearings investigating the events of January 6, 2021. “Our nation is suffering. Our economy is in the gutter. Inflation is rampant. Gas prices have reached an all-time high. Ships are unable to unload cargo. Families cannot get needed baby formula. We are an embarrassment around the world,” Trump wrote. But instead of trying to solve those and other problems, the “Democrat Congress” is staging “a Kangaroo Court, hoping to distract the American people from the great pain they are experiencing,” the former president claimed.
- “A few years ago, it occurred to me to say that we are experiencing a third world war fought piecemeal,” the head of the Catholic Church said in a May 19 interview with Jesuit media outlets that was published on Tuesday. “Today, for me, World War III has been declared.” Francis noted that while the fighting in Ukraine “pricks our sensibilities more,” wars also are ongoing in such places as northern Nigeria and Myanmar, “and nobody cares.” He added, “The world is at war. This is something that should give us pause for thought.”
- Ukrainian fighters are struggling to use some of the weaponry provided by Washington to battle Russian forces, including Javelin anti-tank missiles, because the Pentagon has failed to provide training materials, spare parts and other logistical assistance, The Washington Post reported on Tuesday. The breakdown stems from an absence of “wartime customer service,” the types of support that US troops rely on to keep their weapons operable, the newspaper said, citing interviews with Ukrainian commanders and Western volunteer fighters. The Post gave the example of Javelin missile launchers that couldn’t be used because of failed electrical components and poor translation of user instructions.
- US President Joe Biden will run for office again in 2024, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has said. Biden and top administration officials have already repeatedly confirmed his intention to launch a re-election bid, she pointed out. Biden has faced growing concerns about his age and health issues, with even fellow Democrats suggesting they might be obstacles on his path to re-election. The president, who’s 79, would be 86 by the end of a second term.
