- Bitcoin’s value has surged past $57,000, according to a graph provided by Coindesk. The world’s most popular digital currency broke the $57,000 ceiling at 12:14 GMT but then slid back a little only to report gains again. As of 12:32 GMT its value is estimated at $57,127.70.
- Some are of the opinion that Bitcoin will get to $4 million per Bitcoin, in the next 18-24 months.
- This year Britain holds the G7 presidency and is expected to host a face-to-face summit in Cornwall in June. During a Friday meeting leaders pledged to boost cooperation as well as to donate to the Covax initiative. “Diplomacy is the art of telling someone to go to hell in such a tactful way that one will look forward with pleasure to making the trip”, reads a quote attributed to Winston Churchill. It would seem that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is not a big fan of this art. At the G7 virtual meeting he told German Chancellor Angela Merkel to keep quiet as he was addressing his counterparts.
- Russia hopes that the United States will respond to an idea of adopting a joint statement at the highest level on inadmissibility of a nuclear war, Russia’s Ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov said at an online conference of the Council on Foreign Relations, a US non-profit think tank. “One of the most pressing issues remains ensuring predictability and transparency taking into account the demise of the INF Treaty,” he said.
- Four people were detained during the fourth day of protests in Catalonia, Spain. While most of the events across Spain ended peacefully, there was a series of clashes between rioters and law enforcement officers in Barcelona. Residents in Spain’s capital Madrid and other cities are expected to join Barcelona for another round of nationwide protests on 20 February. The protests were triggered by the arrest of Spanish rapper Pablo Hasel, who was accused of insulting the Crown and referring to activities of the GRAPO group, which is considered a terrorist organisation in Spain, in his songs and tweets.
- As strange as it may seem US President Joe Biden has yet to visit Texas, where severe winter storms have already killed at least 30 people. Sleepy Joe, who earlier got around to visiting Michigan and Wisconsin, explained that his trip to Texas should not create “a burden for the folks” trying to tackle the weather crisis.
- A United Nations investigation has found that private military contractor Erik Prince violated a UN-imposed arms embargo on Libya by furnishing weapons to Haftar, the rebellious commander of the Tobruk-based Libyan National Army, in 2019. According to The New York Times, which viewed a copy of the confidential report, Prince provided Haftar with a mercenary force of attack aircraft, gunboats and hackers as part of an $80 million deal.
- Facebook is “back at the [negotiating] table” following the social network’s move to ban Australian news outlets from sharing content on the platform, the country’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Saturday. He also referred to the subsequent decision by senior Facebook Asia-Pacific executive Simon Milner to apologise for the platform accidentally blocking pages run by Australian charities, government agencies, and smaller businesses, including those pertaining to the coronavirus pandemic response. “This is a really hard thing to do. We’ve never done it before. We are sorry for the mistakes we made in some of the implementation”, Milner pointed out.
- In the wake of a fierce winter storm that knocked out power for millions of Texans, some residents are reporting colossal spikes in their electricity bills, with some asked to pay more than $17,000 for just a few weeks of service. As the Texas power grid was battered by a days-long snow and ice storm this week – prompting the state’s utilities manager, ERCOT, to impose rolling blackouts – a major shortage of electricity drove up wholesale costs to astronomical levels. While around four million Texans were left in the dark, some of those fortunate enough to not lose power are now reaping the whirlwind in the form of sky-high bills.
- An Emergency Order from the Biden administration’s Department of Energy shows Texas energy grid operator ERCOT was instructed to stay within green energy standards by purchasing energy from outside the state at a higher cost, throttling power output throughout the state ahead of a catastrophic polar vortex.
- Australian reporter Cory Bernardi is the first mainstream host to report on Joe Biden’s obvious dementia that is apparent to anyone paying attention. No one in the US liberal media is strong enough to point this out – President Biden is out to lunch. He is in an escalating stage of cognitive decline.
- Cathay Pacific Airways created a waiver on wearing a mask for first class and business class travelers who are reclined in their seats. The new policy doesn’t apply for economy seating as they must keep their masks on at all times. In a statement, the carrier elaborated more on the mask-wearing exemption, arguing that “seats in first and business class are more spacious with partitions, and passengers are exempted when lying flat for sleep.” The airline insisted that its aircraft fleet is equipped with air filtration systems “capable of filtering 99.9999% of dust particles, including virus and bacteria.”
- During a prime time broadcast that was syndicated across numerous major TV and radio networks in the UK, viewers were told, “There’s no chip or tracker in the vaccine.”
- While the world continues to focus on the COVID-19 pandemic, several other (far more deadly) viruses have made emerged in Africa – the most recent among them being bubonic plague, which has killed at least 31 people and sickened over 500 in the Biringi area of Ituri Province in northeastern DR Congo between November 15 and December 13. Aside from five instances of pneumonic plague and two cases of septicemic plague – which occurs when the disease spreads to the lungs or blood, the vast majority of cases were bubonic plague – with younger people suffering the most. The average age of patients has been 13, with the youngest being a three-month-old baby.
- The magnetic north pole, where a compass needle points to, does not have a permanent location. Instead, it wobbles around close to the geographic north pole, the point around which the Earth spins due to movements within the Earth’s core. For reasons that are yet to be understood, magnetic pole movements can be more extreme than a wobble at times. One of the most dramatic movements — the Laschmps Excursion, took place around 42 000 years ago. To study what happened during that time, the scientists analyzed ancient New Zealand kauri trees that had been preserved in peat bogs for more than 40 000 years. Using the yearly growth rings, the researchers were able to produce a detailed timescale of how the Earth’s atmosphere changed over this time. The trees revealed a prolonged spike in the radiocarbon levels in the atmosphere caused by the collapse of the magnetic fields as the poles switched.
- Former President Donald Trump has told friends he has hundreds of millions of dollars in backing for a new social media venture that would give him an online presence and protect conservatives from being shut down online. Two sources familiar with discussions said investors included Silicon Valley figures motivated by fears of censorship and online “cancel culture.” Details emerged as Trump began a new phase of his post-presidency, giving television interviews from his Florida base in the week after his Senate impeachment acquittal. Trump is yet to join any alternative social media platform since Big Tech banned him.
- The former Delaware computer repair shop owner who says he obtained Hunter Biden’s laptop sued Twitter for a second time over how the social media platform handled a New York Post exposé on President Joe Biden‘s son, Hunter Biden, alleging the tech company defamed him by implying he was a hacker, The Washington Examiner reported Friday. On Thursday, John Paul Mac Isaac filed his lawsuit in the Southern District of Florida. He claims in the suit that he was forced to shut down his business, in part, because Twitter labeled the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop as being hacked materials, which he denied, and he said had damaged his reputation, as reported. “Plaintiff is not a hacker and the information obtained from the computer does not constitute hacked materials because Plaintiff lawfully gained access to the computer, first with the permission of its owner, Biden,” Mac Issac’s attorney.
- A court in Moscow has ordered the arrest of a Russian man on suspicions he has passed sensitive information to the West. Demuri Voronin worked as a consultant in the German parliament, advising on energy policy, reports claim. On Friday, a judge at the Lefortovo Court said that Voronin would remain behind bars while prosecutors prepare a case against him for high treason.
