- Americans should stock up on essentials and prepay their bills before the US dollar crashes in 2022, Jesse Powell, chief executive of Kraken crypto exchange, has predicted. In a TV interview with Blomberg, Powell said he was wondering where the bottom was with regard to the value of the dollar, citing the soaring inflation and interest rates going negative. He suggested that people should prepay their healthcare and tuition fees and stock up on the basics. “I’m going to say the dollar is going to zero. You should start stocking up on gasoline and milk right now.”
- Russian senators are exploring the possibility of developing national tax legislation for giant global internet companies, like Facebook and Google, after new laws that will make them establish physical presences in the country. That’s according to Senator Alexey Pushkov, who revealed on Friday that the Federation Council Commission on Information Policy and Cooperation with the Media is looking at the best way to tax foreign websites. Speaking to the TASS news agency, Pushkov explained that Russia is going to develop national legislation while waiting for the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to finalize its new international tax convention.
- Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in jail last year after a jury found him guilty of rape and sexual assault. He currently faces additional charges of sexual misconduct, with a maximum penalty of 140 years behind bars. Weinstein’s legal team believes he did not receive a fair trial because the judge wrongfully permitted excessive testimony, whose sole goal was to defame his character. They argued that the judge should not have allowed the testimony of three women who claimed that Weinstein had sexually assaulted them, because their allegations were not part of the case.
- A plethora of descriptions regarding various races in the Dungeons & Dragons universe have been scrapped from the guidebooks in an effort to make the tabletop RPG more “welcoming and inclusive.” In a recent blog post, Jeremy Crawford, the principal rule designer for the legendary RPG Dungeons & Dragons, revealed that there had been a mass removal of “problematic lore” from several D&D books.
- US aircraft manufacturer Boeing is set on moving its production to the virtual reality world within the next two years, its chief engineer, Greg Hyslop, revealed. “It’s about strengthening engineering. We are talking about changing the way we work across the entire company,” Hyslop told Reuters. The engineer says that over 70% of quality issues at Boeing can be traced back to design issues, and dumping aging paper-based practices could be the basis of positive change.
- Google is faced with having to pay a whopping 1 billion rubles ($13.54 million) in mid-March 2022 if it fails to comply with the Moscow Arbitration Court’s decision ordering it to unblock a Russian TV channel’s YouTube account. The US tech giant had no right to restrict the YouTube page of the Tsargrad TV channel, Russia’s Ninth Arbitration Court of Appeal ruled on Thursday, supporting a previous court decision. Google was ordered to restore the channel as well as its monetization rights, imposing what Russian media described as an “unprecedented” forfeit penalty if it failed to comply. Google will have to pay 100,000 rubles ($1,358) for each day it fails to comply with the court’s decision after it comes into force. The penalty will also increase “in a progressive manner” for each week that Google delays in adhering to the ruling.
- A Missouri jury has ruled that a school district owes more than $4 million to a male transgender student, who sued for sex discrimination after being denied the use of boys’ bathrooms and locker rooms. The Jackson County jury decided on Monday that the unnamed student was discriminated against “based on his sex.”
- Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is investigating two pharmaceutical companies for allegedly promoting their drugs as puberty blockers for children who identify as transgender. “The manufacture, sale, prescription, and use of puberty blockers on young teens and minors is dangerous and reckless,” Paxton said in a statement announcing the investigation this week. “These drugs were approved for very different purposes and can have detrimental and even irreversible side effects. I will not allow pharmaceutical companies to take advantage of Texas children.” Manufactured by Endo Pharmaceuticals, the drug Supprelin LA is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment Central Precocious Puberty, a medical condition in which a child starts going through puberty at an abnormally young age. The drug, delivered via an implant, arrests this process until the child is at an appropriate age.
- Ghislaine Maxwell’s defense team at her federal sex trafficking trial called its witnesses to the stand on Thursday, with a psychologist testifying that accusers’ memories can be corrupted overtime by outside information or “suggestion.” The defence is hoping to cast doubt on the accusations against Maxwell, charged with recruiting and grooming underage girls. Dr Elizabeth Loftus, a psychology professor at the University of California, Irvine, told the courtroom that based on her research, people “can be subjected to post-event suggestion”. According to Dr Loftus, memories have three phases: acquisition, when they are formed; retention, when the memory is kept; and retrieval, when someone asks for the memory to be recalled. The deliberate act of remembering something, according to the psychologist, can alter the memory itself.
- Huntsmans are big spiders that despite being venomous, are not considered dangerous as they rarely bite humans. The Australian state of Queensland’s health minister Yvette D’ath was giving a COVID briefing to the media when one of the journalists told her she had a huntsman spider crawling on her. D’ath remained visibly calm and continued talking, however, she had to interrupt her speech and get help when the spider turned out to be under her foot.
- During the anniversary, national flags were flown at half-mast in North Korea, cars, ships, and trains blared their horns, and people in the country visited the Mansu Hill monument complex in Pyongyang to lay flowers and bow before giant statues of Kim Jong-il and his father Kim Il-song, the founder of the DPRK. On Friday 17 December, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), commonly known as North Korea, marked the tenth anniversary of the death of its previous head of state Kim Jong-il. North Korean state-run media has also issued a call for citizens to stand united behind the current North Korean head of state, Kim Jong-il’s son Kim Jong-un.
- Making public a report by the Lal Commission, formed to investigate the deadly violence in the run-up to the promulgation of the Constitution of Nepal, has remained one of a major demands of the Madhes-based parties. The commission did field visits, observed the spots and interviewed the victims, witnesses and the stakeholders and on December 16, 2017 submitted its report to the then government, which was also led by Sher Bahadur Deuba in his earlier stint as prime minister. Despite the commitment, the Deuba government never made the report public. Four years have passed on Thursday and the government still keeps the report secret.
- Rising consumption in China, India and the United States could bring global coal-fired power demand to a new all-time high this year, undermining efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions, the International Energy Agency (IEA) said on Friday. The IEA said global power generation from coal was expected to reach 10,350 terawatt-hours in 2021, up 9 percent, driven by a rapid economic recovery that has “pushed up electricity demand much faster than low-carbon supplies can keep up.” IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol said the increase was “a worrying sign of how far off track the world is in its efforts to put emissions into decline towards net zero.”
- At a secret jungle camp in Myanmar’s eastern Karen state, a fitness coach and other civilians are training with armed ethnic guerrillas to fight back against the country’s military takeover. Huddled under makeshift tents in remote hills near the Thai border, these new recruits learn how to load rifles and set detonators for homemade bombs as they prepare to battle the army behind the February 1 coup. A spokesperson for Myanmar’s military government did not respond to a request for comment about the group and other civil defence forces around the country.
- The UAE has announced this week the suspension of negotiations on the purchase of F-35 fighter jets, in addition to drones and advanced munitions, citing technical requirements, “sovereign operational restrictions,” and cost and benefit analysis. At the same time, the UAE stressed that “the US remains the preferred provider for advanced defense requirements and discussions for the F-35 may be re-opened in the future.”
