- Shares of Credit Suisse bank plummet more than 28%, deepening their historical lows, due to doubts about the entity’s ability to raise more capital to cover its financial problems. The trigger has been the refusal of the president of the first shareholder of the Swiss bank, the Saudi SNB, to contribute more capital in case Credit Suisse needed it. The Saudi firm argues that it has already reached the regulatory limit of 10% of the shareholding that it cannot exceed, but the market reading is easier: the Saudis do not want to put more money.
- A Russian fighter jet forced down a US Air Force drone over the Black Sea on Tuesday after damaging the propeller of the American MQ-9 Reaper drone, according to the US military. The Reaper drone and two Russian Su-27 aircraft were flying over international waters over the Black Sea on Tuesday when one of the Russian jets intentionally flew in front of and dumped fuel on the unmanned drone several times, a statement from US European Command said.
- Users of Samsung’s flagship smartphone have accused the company of faking shots of the Moon with its AI-powered Space Zoom feature. In a widely-shared post on social media, Reddit user u/ibreakphotos tested the capabilities of the Galaxy S20 Ultra in an effort to prove that the 100x zoom level uses trickery in order to produce highly-detailed images of the Moon. “The moon pictures from Samsung are fake. Samsung’s marketing is deceptive,” the user wrote in the lengthy Reddit post.
- A Japanese man who was on death row for nearly half a century has been granted a retrial. Iwao Hakamada, now 87, is the world’s longest-serving death row inmate, according to Amnesty International. He was sentenced to death in 1968 for murdering his boss, the man’s wife and their two children in 1966. The former professional boxer confessed after 20 days of interrogation during which he said he was beaten. He later retracted the confession in court. In the retrial, judges will rule on whether DNA from blood stains found on clothing alleged to have been worn by the killer matches Mr Hakamada’s.
- Pfizer has offered to extend its Covid-19 vaccine contract with the European Union while scaling back deliveries, but still expects the bloc to pay billions of euros for unused doses amid a major supply glut in some countries, the Financial Times has reported. The offer prompted outrage from a handful of member states, who say the deal would serve the interests of Big Pharma over their own citizens. The contract extension would push the vaccine agreement out to 2026, with a proposed 40% reduction in the number of doses supplied as well as delays to deliveries, the newspaper reported on Tuesday, citing two unnamed officials. However, despite the suggested cuts, the US pharma giant still insists that it be paid for the full number of doses originally agreed upon, many of which would never be produced under the new terms.
- A woman injured in a knife attack in Gloucestershire, UK, last week, was an American intelligence operative seconded to British intelligence, the Daily Mail reported on Tuesday. Last Thursday’s incident, initially described as attempted murder but later upgraded to terrorism, has led to rampant speculation in the UK as neither the victim nor the attacker have been publicly named. According to local residents interviewed by the Daily Mail, the woman and her attacker were inside the car, arguing, before the stabbing.
- Facebook’s parent company Meta will cut 10,000 of its global workforce in the coming months, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced in an open letter to staff on Tuesday. This follows similar cuts in November which saw more than 11,000 workers laid off, or about 13% of its entire staff. Zuckerberg also informed Meta’s workforce that the company is to close 5,000 open roles that have not yet been filled, as he cautioned about the “possibility that this new economic reality will continue for many years.” Meta’s share price rose by more than 5% following the news.
- When asked about a spillover effect from the collapse of US lenders, which has led to a global stock rout, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said problems in the American banking system cannot affect Russia in any way. “Our banking system, of course, has, let’s say, certain connections with some segments of the international financial system, but for the most part it is under illegal restrictions,” he said. Peskov added that sanctions have been “a blessing in disguise” because Russia is “to a certain extent immune to the negative impact of the crisis that is now unfolding across the ocean.” Russia’s financial sector became the subject of sweeping sanctions imposed by the US, the EU and their allies over the conflict in Ukraine.
- Leonardo da Vinci, the master painter of the Mona Lisa and celebrated artist of the Renaissance movement, was the son of an Italian father and a slave mother who was trafficked to Italy from the Caucasus, according to recently-unveiled research. “Leonardo’s mother was a Circassian slave [who was] taken from her home in the Caucasus Mountains, sold and resold several times in Constantinople, then Venice, before arriving in Florence,” said Carlo Vecce, a da Vinci expert from the University of Naples, on Tuesday. It was in Florence, Vecce added, that the artist’s mother met Piero da Vinci, with whom she had a son named Leonardo. Previously, experts have generally agreed that da Vinci’s mother was called Caterina and that her son was born in 1452. The key to Vecce’s findings was discovering a document in Florence’s state archives dated in 1452 and understood to be written by da Vinci’s father – who worked as a notary – in which he sought legal emancipation from slavery for a woman named Caterina in order “to recover her freedom and recover her human dignity.”
- The Covid-19 pandemic will no longer be considered a global health emergency by the end of this year, World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Tuesday. Speaking at the University of Michigan, where he was awarded the Thomas Francis Jr. medal for his contribution to healthcare, Tedros said he’s “confident that at some point this year we will be able to say that Covid-19 is over as a public health emergency of international concern – and as a pandemic.” The WHO chief noted that the weekly number of reported deaths is now lower than when the organization first used the word “pandemic” to describe the Covid-19 outbreak three years ago on March 11, 2020.
- Swiss banking giant Credit Suisse will be the next to go bust following the failure of a number of US banks amid the unfolding financial crisis, according to economist Robert Kiyosaki, who predicted the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008. “The problem is the bond market, and my prediction, I called Lehman Brothers years ago, and I think the next bank to go is Credit Suisse,” said the co-author of the best-selling book ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’, “because the bond market is crashing.” Kiyosaki explained on Monday that the bond market, which is bigger than the stock market, is the economy’s “biggest problem” and will put the US in “serious trouble.”
- A detailed image of a distant star about to meet its explosive demise had been captured by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope and recently shared with the public. The star in question, Wolf-Rayet 124 (WR 124), is located about 15,000 light-years away from Earth, in the constellation Sagitta.
The image, which was released by NASA at the South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas, on March 14 shows the star approaching the stage where such celestial bodies go supernova, shedding off its outer layers and producing a spectacle that, when observed from far away, somewhat resembles a cherry blossom. “We’ve never seen it like that before. It’s really exciting,” Macarena Garcia Marin, a European Space Agency official involved in the project, said as quoted by media.
