- While many livelihoods have been ravaged by the COVID-19 pandemic, this year has been a bumper year for rubber glove manufacturers in Malaysia, as the fight to contain the disease led to a surge in demand for latex surgical gloves and other latex medical products. For tycoons such as Stanley Thai and Lim Kuang Sia, the founders of glove manufacturers Supermax Berhad and Kossan Rubber Industries respectively, they have reportedly been elevated to billionaire status after their stocks took off due to global demand. The stock value reportedly tripled for the world’s largest rubber glove manufacturer, Top Glove Berhad. Founder Lim Wee Chai’s net worth is said to have jumped to RM2.5 billion (US$599 million).
- The US has signed a treaty with seven countries governing exploration and exploitation of the Moon and its resources. While many signatories never even landed there, Russia and China were – perhaps unsurprisingly – not invited. The Artemis Accords, proposed in May to set reasonable boundaries for the growing number of countries eager to stake a claim to Earth’s only satellite, have been officially unveiled on Tuesday. In addition to the US, the signatory countries are Australia, Canada, Japan, Italy, the UK, Luxembourg, the UAE, and Japan. Subtitled “Principles for cooperation in the civil exploration and use of the Moon, Mars, comets, and asteroids for peaceful purposes,” the 18-page document colors resolutely within the lines of the aging Outer Space Treaty, which prevents any one country from staking a claim to the celestial body.
- Former Mexican Defense Secretary Gen. Salvador Cienfuegos, who led the country’s armed forces for six years under then-President Enrique Peña Nieto, has been arrested on drug trafficking and money laundering charges at Los Angeles International Airport, U.S. and Mexican sources confirmed Thursday. Two people with knowledge of the arrest said Cienfuegos was taken into custody on a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration warrant. One of the people said the warrant was for drug trafficking and money laundering charges. Both spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case publicly.
- Johnson & Johnson has agreed to pay more than $100 million to resolve over 1,000 lawsuits blaming its baby powder for causing cancer, in the first set of major settlements in four years of litigation, people with knowledge of the pacts said. The accords, struck with several law firms, signal that the world’s largest maker of health care products is trying to get ahead of the burgeoning litigation, with some 20,000 lawsuits still pending, according to securities filings. They mark the first time Johnson & Johnson has settled the bulk of a plaintiffs lawyer’s cases in the baby powder suits, rather than individual suits on the eve of or during trial. The deals come seven months since J&J last faced a jury reviewing evidence about the cancer risk of its signature talc product, which it maintains is safe, although it has replaced it with a cornstarch version in the U.S. and Canada. The company used the lull, due to the pandemic, to hold settlement talks, according to the people, who asked not to be identified because the matter is private. Now that hiatus is about to end, as a trial over a factory worker’s claims of mesothelioma tied to talc is scheduled to start this month in California.
- Shahla Jahanbin and Shahla Entesari, two female signatories to Khamenei’s resignation statement calling for Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to step down, were sentenced to four years and two months in prison.
- German investigating authorities have raided the offices of Munich-based company FinFisher that sells the infamous commercial surveillance spyware dubbed ‘FinSpy,’ reportedly in suspicion of illegally exporting the software to abroad without the required authorization. For those unaware, FinSpy is extremely powerful spying software that is being sold as a legal law enforcement tool to governments around the world but has also been found in use by oppressive and dubious regimes to spy on activists, political dissidents and journalists.

- The United Nations (UN) office in India has expressed concern over continuing cases of sexual violence against girls and women in Uttar Pradesh and underlined the need for speedy justice for the victims. Head of India’s Uttar Pradesh state Yogi Adityanth on Saturday offered a dedicated helping hand to address crime against women with two new programmes — “Mission Shakti” and “Operation Shakti”. The campaign will feature awareness campaigns for gender-based sensitisation. It will incorporate short films, street plays, safety pledges, and awareness about laws pertaining to women.
- Navy marines murdered 4 civilians in Puebla. The victims were suspected of stealing fuel from a pipeline. Marines illegally detained, physically abused and murdered four people doing farm work in Puebla last year, the National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) said Thursday. The CNDH said in a statement that it was told by the mother of one of the victims that her son was harvesting hay with three other people on a property in Tlahuapan on February 28 when marines traveling in three vehicles arrested them on the grounds that they were stealing fuel from a nearby Pemex pipeline. The CNDH said that when the marines realized they were being watched they put their victims into the navy vehicles and left the property. The next day the bodies of the four victims were found on a hill on Puebla’s northeastern border with the state of Tlaxcala. The rights commission said it had informed Navy chief José Rafael Ojeda Durán of the “serious human rights violations” committed by the marines. The navy said Thursday it would comply with the commission’s recommendations. It has previously said that the marines involved in the alleged crimes were made available to prosecutors.

What happens to all Wind Turbines that reach the end of their life? Most of them just get buried. A wind turbine comes to the end of its lifecycle after about 20-25 years. It is estimated that in the USA there will be more than 720,000 tons of blade material to get rid of over the next two decades. This amount is roughly 8,000 blades a year over the next four years. In Europe there will be around 3,800 blades coming down annually through 2022. The problem is only going to get worse and the issue is of great concern. While 99% of a turbine’s parts can be re-sold and recycled, the majority of turbine blades are a challenge, so much so that they end up just being buried in a giant ‘graveyard of blades’ landfill. Meanwhile, in some places around the world, designers are finding creative ways to upcycle turbine blades in a fun and useful manner. For example, in Rotterdam, there’s a 1,200sq m children’s playground called Wikado, with tunnels, slides, ramps, and even a slide tower, all made from five discarded wind turbine blades.
