- Popular email marketing and newsletter service Mailchimp has disclosed yet another security breach that enabled threat actors to access an internal support and account admin tool to obtain information about 133 customers. “The unauthorized actor conducted a social engineering attack on Mailchimp employees and contractors, and obtained access to select Mailchimp accounts using employee credentials compromised in that attack,” the Intuit-owned company said in a disclosure. Mailchimp said it identified the lapse on January 11, 2023, and noted that there is no evidence the unauthorized party breached Intuit systems or other customer information beyond the 133 accounts.
- A gold-plated Kalashnikov rifle has been found in the luggage of a man traveling from the Russian city of Yekaterinburg, the Ural Customs Administration reported on Thursday. The weapon was discovered by Koltsovo airport customs officers, who say that the man was trying to smuggle it in a weapon gift case through the “green corridor” – a customs entrance intended for travelers who do not have any luggage to declare. The passenger was flying to Uzbekistan’s capital, Tashkent. According to the customs service, the 7,62mm caliber Kalashnikov rifle in question was built in 1974 – the same year the model, more commonly known as the AK-74, was adopted for service in the USSR. The gun’s barrel, receiver, sights and magazine were plated in gold and featured an intricate weave. The butt and handguard of the rifle were made from precious woods. The authorities added that the price for such a weapon is estimated to reach as much as half a million rubles or some $7,265.
- The Indian Foreign Ministry has condemned the BBC for broadcasting a “propaganda piece” on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The documentary focuses on allegations that Modi’s government discriminates against Muslims, and alleges that the PM may have played a role in instigating ethnic riots in 2002. “Let me just make it very clear that we think this is a propaganda piece designed to push a particular discredited narrative,” foreign ministry spokesman Arindam Bagchi told NDTV on Thursday. “The bias, the lack of objectivity and, frankly, a continuing colonial mindset, is blatantly visible.”
- Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky claimed that he was not certain if Vladimir Putin actually holds the office of president of Russia, or is even alive. The Kremlin dismissed the remark as an expression of Zelensky’s wishful thinking. Russia and Putin are “a big problem” for Zelensky, so it’s natural that he “would prefer that neither Russia nor Putin existed,” Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin spokesman told journalists on Thursday.
- Meta’s Oversight Board has decided that Facebook and Instagram should allow transgender and non-binary users to post images of their bare breasts out of respect for human rights. However, the ruling doesn’t apply to women despite some female activists waging a “Free the Nipple” campaign for the past decade. The independent body of experts, which CEO Mark Zuckerberg calls Meta’s “Supreme Court,” said in a statement on Tuesday that the company’s community standard on adult nudity and sexual activity has to be amended “so that it is governed by clear criteria that respect international human rights standards.”
- “We are living in an age of extremes. Rising poverty and widening wealth inequality; the rise of anti-democratic nationalism; extreme weather and ecological decline; deep vulnerabilities in our shared social systems; and the shrinking opportunity for billions of ordinary people to earn a livable wage,” said the letter, addressed to Klaus Schwab’s guests at the Swiss resort town of Davos. “There is no point in discussing divisions unless the global elite gathered at Davos addresses the “root causes of division” and builds fairer economies, the signatories insisted. “You, our global representatives, have to tax us, the ultra rich, and you have to start now.” The most notable names among the 205 signatories from 13 countries are Abigail and Tim Disney, grandchildren of Walt Disney’s brother Roy. Joining them this year is Hollywood actor Mark Ruffalo, best known for his recent role as Hulk in Disney’s Marvel franchise.
- The corner of a room is the safest spot to hide from a massive shockwave caused by a nuclear explosion, scientists from Cyprus have discovered after running a computer simulation of the catastrophic event. Those unlucky enough to be near the epicenter of the blast would be instantly vaporized, but those who are quite far away would still be in danger – even if they remain indoors, the researchers warned in a paper published in Physics of Fluids journal on Tuesday. The study “shows that high airspeeds remain a considerable hazard,” Dimitris Drikakis, who led the team at the University of Nicosia, told the American Institute of Physics. The blast would cause a shockwave bubble almost 5km in radius, with strong winds capable of bringing down shabby constructions, as well as injuring or killing people, the study revealed. Concrete-reinforced buildings are likely to withstand the winds, but those inside would have to get to specific areas within seconds of the explosion in order to remain safe, according to the paper.
- The mayor of Amiens in northern France has called on Madonna to lend one of the paintings in her collection to the city, arguing that it could have been stolen from the city during World War I. “Madonna, you probably haven’t heard of Amiens… but there is a special link between you and our city,” Brigitte Foure claimed in a video address to the Queen of Pop, which she published on Facebook on Monday. The 19th century painting ‘Diana and Endymion,’ believed to be by French artist Jerome-Martin Langlois and now owned by Madonna, “is probably a work that was lent to the Amiens museum by the Louvre before the first World War after which we lost trace of it,” she said. Foure pointed out that the city’s authorities “don’t dispute in any way the legal acquisition” of the artwork by Madonna. Instead, she wanted the singer to “loan” the painting to Amiens, explaining that it would strengthen a bid by the city of 135,000 to become the European Capital of Culture in 2028. ‘Diana and Endymion’ had been exhibited at one of the museums in Amiens between 1878 and 1918. But it disappeared during the heavy bombardment of the city by the German forces that year and was thought to have been stolen or destroyed.
- Edward Snowden has lampooned the idea that he once lived in a KGB safehouse in Moscow. The claim was mistakenly made by western-backed Russian investigative outlet, The Insider, as a result of what it said was a translation error. Snowden reacted to the claim on Wednesday, tweeting that it was a lie and branding The Insider “knuckleheads.” Since becoming the focus of news, he added, he had abandoned the notion that media could be relied on to mostly report facts accurately.
- Microsoft announced on Wednesday it will eliminate 10,000 jobs worldwide, almost 5% of its workforce, and take a $1.2-billion charge as global growth is slowing down. In a note to employees seen by Reuters, the company’s chief executive Satya Nadella said the layoffs would conclude by the end of March, with notifications beginning Wednesday. According to the CEO, the company was grappling with a slump in the personal computer market as customers that were accelerating their spending on digital technology during the pandemic are now trying to “optimize their digital spend to do more with less.”
- Centuries after Chinese and Japanese astronomers spotted a bright light in their skies, astronomers have pinned it to a stellar collision that unleashed a rare supernova 850 years ago. A researcher has photographed the structure of Pa 30, a faint but fast-expanding nebula that surrounds one of the Milky Way’s hottest stars. The new observations find that both the nebula and the star are remnants of a rare type of stellar collision. In addition, astronomers have calculated the nebula’s age more precisely, confirmed the speed of its winds and concluded that Pa 30 really is, as suspected, the remains of the “guest star” spotted by stargazers and astronomers in 1181 AD.

Thank You, Bees!
Did you know that one of the first coins in the world had a bee symbol on them? Did you know that there are live enzymes in honey? Did you know that in contact with metal spoon these enzymes die?

Oldest Rune Stone
A team of Norwegian archeologists has found what they call the oldest rune stone known to date. The small, brownish rock carved with mysterious inscriptions is said to date back to the time of Jesus Christ and to be some 2,000 years old. “The up to 2,000-year-old inscriptions are from the very oldest period in the enigmatic history of runic writing,” the Museum of Cultural History in Oslo, which was the first to break the news this week, said in a press release. According to the Oslo museum, the runes on the stone are “the oldest known writing in Norway.” The author of the runes “spoke an ancient language that is considered the precursor to Old Norse,” the parent language of all Nordic tongues spoken today, the statement added. Several runes clearly stand out among other inscriptions, forming the word “idiberug,” the statement said. But the scientists have so far failed to confirm its exact meaning, believing it might have stood for the name ‘Idibergu’ or the family name ‘Idiberung’.
