News Burst 17 July 2021 – Featured News
- Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has warned of a risk of unrest in Afghanistan spilling over to neighbouring nations, adding that the situation in the country is “quickly degrading”. The top Russian diplomat also expressed regret that “in recent days we have witnessed a rapid degradation of the situation in Afghanistan”. Right now, Afghanistan is seeing a spike in violence at the hands of the Taliban, which reportedly controls at least 212 districts in the country, while the Afghan government is in charge of just 70 districts.
- Richard Holden, an English parliamentarian from the Conservative Party has proposed the British authorities outlaw the procedure of virginity testing and hymen tissue “repair” in the country. “Virginity tests and hymen repair surgeries are being conducted by doctors to check or ‘restore’ the virginity of girls and women, often prior to marriage. These practices are not founded in science, are abusive, and perpetuate dangerous myths”, the Daily Mail quoted Holden as commenting on his proposal.
- The British Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is in the grip of a massive public backlash following its search for the Hancock scandal whistleblower, The Sun reports. On Thursday, ICO officers raided two homes in the south of England, seizing computer equipment and electronic devices as part of a probe into the leaking of CCTV footage of former UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock kissing an aide in his office. The Sun’s editor, Victoria Newton, said she would “rather go to jail than hand the name of [the whistleblower] over”.
- The Guardian article, which claims that the Russian leadership “agreed” to back Donald Trump in 2016, is false, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday. “I commented on this several times yesterday, it seems to me that there is nothing much more to comment on. This is a complete lie, a classic fake, just another example [of fake news]”, Peskov told the press. The Kremlin noted that the claims of Russian interference in the 2016 election were just part of an internal political struggle in the US.
- Just hours after the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse, the de facto Haitian government quietly requested troop deployments by the US and United Nations to defend the country’s essential infrastructure. The US has already sent several officials from the FBI and US Department of Homeland Security to the Caribbean nation to help with the investigation of Moïse’s murder, as well as $5 million in supplemental funding for the Haitian National Police (PNH).
- A little-known non-profit advocacy organization, Consumers’ Research, has purchased series of expensive advertising campaigns to rebuke what they refer to as Coca-Cola’s “woke” political agenda.
- A mysterious “demon wall” allegedly from the 17th century, which has attracted flocks of foreign tourists to the Norwegian village of Sauherad, has been revealed to be a modern-era work and a fake. The frescoes at the Sauherad Church show some 2,800 devil faces, masks, animals, and fantasy scenes. “This wall has always been a mystery. It hasn’t been possible to find anything similar or place it in a historical context artwise”, the curator at the Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research (NIKU), Susanne Kaun, told national broadcaster NRK. Until now, it has been thought that the intricate figures were painted by a 17th-century priest, although the motives were unknown.
- Coventry, the home of the Jaguar Land Rover car company, it has been chosen as the site of a new electric battery gigafactory. A planning application has been submitted for a gigafactory on the site of the derelict Coventry Airport which would employ 6,000 people making electric car batteries. Coventry City Council – which owns the land and has gone into partnership with the Rigby Group – plans to build a 1.7 million square metre factory which would manufacture batteries for the fast-growing electric car market.
- Belgium’s nuclear watchdog AFCN said on Thursday that it shut a reactor at one of the nation’s two atomic power plants overnight after it started leaking hydrogen. “The Doel 2 reactor was stopped manually on the night from 14 July to 15 July… after Engie Electrabel employees noticed a rapid rise in hydrogen consumption by the generator, which indicated a leak”, it said in a statement. One of Doel’s two reactors was shut down preventively to reduce any possible risks, the regulator said. The cause of the leak is not known and the reactor will not restart until it is found. The Belgian subsidiary of French energy giant Engie said it had also increased surveillance at Begium’s second nuclear power plant, in Tihange on the Meuse river, after the latter appeared ready to overflow its banks.
- Wikipedia fails to reflect relevant viewpoints on hot-button topics and describes center-left establishment worldviews, its co-founder Larry Sanger said. This consensus reality is prone to nefarious manipulation by powers that be. “There is a big nasty complex game being played behind the scenes to make the articles say what somebody wants them to say,” Sanger said this week, blasting the current community culture at Wikipedia. The website was founded by “a couple of libertarians, who at least in the beginning were really tolerant and open to all sorts of anti-establishment views being canvassed within the articles.” But on “hot-button topics,” whether political or cultural, it is now clearly pushing the viewpoint of the center-left, obfuscating and downplaying the opinions of other groups, Sanger said. This approach is inherently flawed because it denies people the right to make informed decisions in life.
- Two previously unknown trips shared by Ghislaine Maxwell and Bill Clinton have been revealed, and journalist Vicky Ward has described the relationship between the two as an “escape” from the late Jeffrey Epstein. On the ‘Chasing Ghislaine’ podcast, Ward alleged this week that Maxwell joined Clinton on two foreign trips in the early 2000s and was considered “just as important” to his staff as Epstein. Clinton reportedly used Epstein’s infamous Lolita Express plane – which was said to jet some people for sexual encounters with underage women – to visit Japan, Taiwan, and China in 2005. He also flew by private jet to India in 2003. Maxwell joined him on both trips and was treated as a member of the former president’s team. Maxwell was often whom Clinton and others would go to when asking for Epstein donations, including an apparent six-figure amount that helped create the Clinton Global Initiative.
- Boffins Down Under have started calling shark attacks as ‘negative encounters’ to try to counterbalance the natural fear humans have that all a shark wants to do is rip your legs off and eat them. Words such as ‘attack’ and ‘bite’ tend to create a negative perception, say scientists such as Leonardo Guida, a shark researcher at the Australian Marine Conservation Society. And they should be softened “because it helps dispel inherent assumptions that sharks are ravenous, mindless man-eating monsters.” “Sharks don’t have hands so, if they want to explore something, they mouth it,” Nathan Hart, a professor at Macquarie University, told the Sydney Morning Herald, before adding: “Very rarely are humans consumed by sharks.” And Professor Hart doesn’t want folk to be killing sharks, especially as many are endangered species.
- Scottish mountaineering groups have warned that hikers using Google Maps to climb some of the UK’s highest mountains are being set up for “potentially fatal” falls. One such route on the app apparently directs people off a cliff. In a statement, the John Muir Trust and Mountaineering Scotland have cautioned climbing enthusiasts about the dangers of relying on technology to navigate on mountains.
- Russia has allocated around 3.7 billion rubles ($50 million) to build a state-of-the-art space telescope with the ability to observe in ultraviolet, designed to see parts of the cosmos inaccessible to ground-based equipment. According to RIA Novosti, Russia’s space agency Roscosmos and its subsidiary Lavochkin signed a contract to build the Spektr-UV, with work scheduled to be completed by the end of 2025. The telescope is designed to use ultraviolet observe parts of space inaccessible to ground-based telescopes. It will be launched into space, in a similar way to the US’ Hubble, and will allow researchers to study stars, galaxies, and black holes, as well as the atmosphere of planets and exoplanets, and comets. It will also be equipped with spectrographs and cameras to produce high-quality images.
- In the past weeks a dispute between Saudi Arabia and the UAE began when an OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) plan set out a new 2022 schedule during which there would be a prolonged reduction in oil output. The UAE quickly lashed out, publicly calling the plan “unfair” and sparking retaliatory rhetoric from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). Under an OPEC+ (OPEC plus ten other oil-producing states) proposal, still in dispute, Saudi Arabia would have to cut its oil production by 5% and the UAE by 18%. Although they seem to be moving towards an agreement, it is likely that the two allies will soon again be at loggerheads, as their proxy forces in Yemen wage war upon each other.
- An Israeli billionaire has reportedly implicated himself in a corruption scandal after filing court documents that allegedly show he’d paid $360 million in bribes to officials for mining rights in the Democratic Republic of Congo. According to newspaper Haaretz, it is apparently the biggest sum of money an Israeli has ever been suspected of paying as bribes. The paper reported that details of the scandal emerged over the course of a joint investigation by the UK’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO) and Swiss authorities, into an inter-continental money-laundering network that stretched from Europe to Africa.
- Miami Mayor Francis Suarez has called for US military intervention following a weekend of protests in Cuba, arguing that previous US attacks elsewhere – from Panama to Kosovo – have gone swimmingly. His idea was not popular. “[Cuba] is exporting communism throughout the hemisphere and throughout the world and has been doing it for decades and that is something that should interest the national security of the US,” the mayor said. He then suggested the US take out the Cuban government by some means similar to the 1990 arrest of notorious drug-trafficking Panamanian leader Manuel Noriega, a US ally who lost his favored status after it was revealed that he had also passed intelligence to other countries, including Cuba, in defiance of Washington.
- The problem with the Italian football team is that there’s just too many Italians on it, The Economist argued in a bizarre article linking Italy’s Euro 2020 victory to fascism, racism, and the defeat of multiculturalism. “The most striking aspect of Italy’s 26-man squad before it took to the pitch was that, alone among the main contenders, it did not include a single player considered as being of color,” the article read, noting: “Although three were born in Brazil, they are of Italian descent.” Basically, Italian citizenship is based on jus sanguinis (‘right of blood’): it is passed down from an Italian parent to an Italian child. Many countries around the world award citizenship this way, from Ireland to France to Japan. The opposite, jus soli (‘right of soil’ or ‘birthright citizenship’), grants citizenship to anyone born on a nation’s territory. However, while Italians erupted in celebration, some dismayed England fans turned their anger on their team’s three black players who missed their penalty kicks.
- Israel’s PM Bennett on Pfizer vaccine: “We do not know exactly to what degree the vaccine helps, but it is significantly less,” than health officials expected.
- Election Management System was breached during the course of the 2020 US election, says digital forensic expert Ben Cotton at the Arizona hearing on the Maricopa County audit.
- Pentagon: Some of the arrested killers implicated in the assassination of Haiti’s president previously received U.S. military training.
- Spain’s highest court has ruled that the country’s strict lockdown in Spring 2020 was an unconstitutional violation of citizens’ basic rights to free movement.
