- Japan is still dealing with the consequences of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear power plant meltdowns in the wake of an offshore 9.1 earthquake and tsunami. The facility is out of space to store the ever-increasing amount of radiated waste, and the government is about set to release over 1 million tonnes of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean. Eco activists are outraged following recent reports from Japanese media concerning a government panel’s intention to approve the release of highly-radioactive water into the ocean. An official announcement is expected to follow at the end of the month. According to the Kahoko Shinpo newspaper, the levels of radioactive elements in processed water are many times above the safe norm. In particular, the level of strontium in water is 100 times above the safety cutoff, while levels of iodine exceed safe levels in at least half of all samples. Fukushima fisherman are also against the plan, as they fear consumers will lose trust in local marine products.

- Images surfaced last week showing the Nabarima, laden with 1.3 million barrels of crude and anchored in the Gulf of Paria, tilting on its side, sparking concerns about a possible oil spill. Venezuela’s state oil company Petroleos de Venezuela reportedly intends to offload crude from the idled Nabarima floating oil facility, according to sources cited by Reuters on Monday. Sources claim a transfer of the crude from the facility via a ship-to-ship (STS) transfer is being considered amid environmental concerns. However, it was not immediately clear how the STS transfer would take place. The move to transfer the crude is believed to have been triggered by environmental concerns, as idled Floating Storage and Offshore (FSO) vessel, which is anchored in the Gulf of Paria off the coast of Venezuela, is estimated to be holding some 1.3 million barrels of crude oil.

- A newborn baby declared dead was found alive by funeral home employees after the infant spent six hours in a morgue refrigerator. The baby was born prematurely on October 21 after just 23 weeks of gestation at the General Hospital La Margarita in the city of Puebla, Mexico. Medical staff at the hospital told the parents that the baby had died and the child was sent to the morgue at 4 a.m. where he remained in refrigeration while the parents filled out paperwork and hired a funeral home to retrieve his body. When the funeral home’s driver arrived at 10 a.m., he noticed the child was crying and moving. Puebla Governor Luis Miguel Barbosa announced his intention to file criminal complaints against those responsible for erroneously declaring the child dead, commenting that if doctors do not have “the emotional tranquility to care for such a child and cannot differentiate between whether he is alive or dead, they should ask for a vacation or quit working.”

Jeffrey Epstein was found dead, aged 66, in his cell on the morning of 11 August 2019. Attention automatically focused on his former cellmate Nicholas Tartaglione, 49, a retired New York police officer. Several newspapers highlighted the fact that Tartaglione – who was awaiting trial on murder charges – had been accused of strangling one of his victims with a zip tie. In February this year the Yonkers Times newspaper reported Tartaglione’s attorney, Bruce Barket, had filed a motion calling for an investigation to determine how the video tape from the cell had been erased and claimed it would have proved Tartaglione acted “appropriately” during a suicide attempt and had not harmed Epstein. Last November federal prosecutors – who incidently include Maurene Comey, the daughter of former FBI director James Comey – asked for Tartaglione’s trial to begin in September 2020 but, on 23 October 2020, there is no sign of him coming to trial any time soon.
