- Dicamba, a volatile herbicide notorious for drifting and harming off-target crops, continues to pose significant environmental damage and potential harm to human health. In 2020, a federal court ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) had overlooked evidence of dicamba’s destructive effects on crops, leading to the invalidation of its registrations. However, instead of removing dicamba from the market, the EPA reapproved it with minor label changes. Subsequent reports confirmed that dicamba still caused extensive damage, prompting a lawsuit against the EPA for failing to take action against the herbicide as directed by the court. Dicamba Drift Devastates Crops: Dicamba drift has caused widespread damage to millions of acres of croplands across the United States. The herbicide has also been found to harm trees. Farmers have become divided as damaged crops lead them to blame neighboring farms for dicamba spraying. Originally, dicamba was used sparingly and not during the growing season due to its potential to harm nearby crops. However, resistance to other herbicides led to the development of genetically engineered dicamba-tolerant soybean and cotton crops, along with a new dicamba herbicide that was expected to stay closer to the fields where it was sprayed. EPA’s Failed Actions: Despite knowing about the damage caused by dicamba drift in 2017, the EPA’s actions were insufficient to prevent further devastation. In 2020, the court ruling invalidated the herbicide’s registrations, but the EPA reapproved it after a few months with minor label changes. However, in 2021, the EPA admitted that these changes had made little difference, leading to the continuation of dicamba-related incidents and damage to crops, non-target plants, and even wildlife habitats. Underreported Damage: The EPA’s reports of dicamba-related incidents during the 2021 growing season indicated over 3,500 cases, with more than 1 million acres of soybean crops affected by drift. Other crops, such as sugar beets, rice, sweet potatoes, peanuts, and grapes, also suffered damage. The true extent of dicamba-driven damage is believed to be significantly higher than reported, as incidents are often underreported. The EPA’s failure to effectively address this issue underscores the ongoing environmental and agricultural risks posed by dicamba.
- Elon Musk’s brain-chip firm says it has received approval from the US Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) to conduct its first tests on humans. The billionaire’s Neuralink implant company wants to help restore people’s vision and mobility by connecting brains with computers. An earlier bid by Neuralink to win FDA approval was rejected on safety grounds, according to a report in March by the Reuters news agency that cited multiple current and former employees.
- Kenyan inventor Richard Turere, who developed a device to ward off lions and other predators from livestock using light sequences, has been named as one of three finalists for the European Patent Office’s (EPO) Young Inventors Prize. The invention, known as Lion Lights, is designed to flash intermittently, tricking lions into sensing human presence and eventually scaring them away. Turere, a Maasai herder, was 11 years old when he invented the solar-powered light system to prevent his family’s livestock, which included goats and sheep, from falling prey to stray lions at Kitengela.
- A Canadian climber died above Camp III on Mt Everest on May 25, taking the season’s death toll to 12, officials said. At least two Nepali climbers and three foreigners are still missing in the high camps of Mt Everest. Petrus Albertyn Swart from Canada breathed his last after he fell ill above Camp IV, said the base camp sources.The Vancouver-based climber suffered from high altitude sickness while heading for the summit push and was helped to descend to Camp IV, sources said, adding that he then died on his way to Camp III. The climber was a part of an expedition managed by Madison Mountaineering, sources claimed.Solo Hungarian climber Suhajda Szilard went missing from the Hillary Step after he attempted to scale Mt Everest without supplemental oxygen or personal Sherpa support on May 24. A team of Sherpa rescuers along with a helicopter has been trying to search for him, sources shared. Deaf and mute Malaysian Hawari Bin Hashim, 33, has gone missing since May 18 when he arrived at Camp IV from the summit point while Shrinivas Sainis Dattatraya, an Indian Singaporean climber, went missing from 8,500m on Mt Everest. Shrinivas reportedly fell from 8,500 into the Tibetan side. Efforts are still underway to search for the missing climber, expedition organizers said.
- Hungary has received the European Commission’s approval to amend contracts for new reactors at its Paks nuclear power plant (NPP), developed by Russia’s Rosatom, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto has revealed. The Paks NPP produces more than half of the electricity consumed in the country. Moscow and Budapest struck the plant-expansion deal in 2014, with Rosatom intended as the builder of two new reactors with a capacity of 1.2 gigawatts each. The project has been hit with long delays and Hungarian officials have discussed changing the contract to include a project management company to speed it up, according to Reuters.
- The government of Cambodia has donated one million doses of Sinovac Covid-19 vaccines and needles and syringes to Myanmar, to assist the country in its fight against the pandemic.
- The Norwegian Directorate of Fisheries has warned the residents of Oslo to keep their distance from “Hvaldimir,” the white whale who appears to have chosen the fjord as his permanent home after traveling down the coast of Norway in 2019. “We especially encourage people in boats to keep a good distance to avoid the whale being injured or, in the worst case, killed by boat traffic,” fisheries director Frank Bakke-Jensen said on Wednesday. Norway considers beluga whales a protected species. Bakke-Jensen believes the whale “now resides in the inner Oslofjord,” a densely populated area that raises the risk of injury due to human contact. He said that Hvaldimir has suffered “minor injuries” from contact with boats before.
- A 72-year-old farmer was killed by ‘about 40 crocodiles’ this morning after falling into their enclosure on the family’s reptile farm. Luan Nam was trying to move a crocodile out of its cage in Cambodia where it had laid eggs when it grabbed the stick he was using as a goad and pulled him in. A group of reptiles swarmed him, tearing his body to pieces and leaving the enclosure in Siem Reap awash with blood. The body was pictured, recovered, after the incident, but police said the man’s arm was torn off and swallowed by the crocodiles. Farmers in Cambodia often breed and sell crocodiles to buyers in China, Thailand and Vietnam where their skin can be made into leather and other products.
- People are accustomed to seeing financial statements in Excel charts, or at least on paper. However, denizens of Judea preferred to keep track of their money on stone. Archeologists have discovered an ancient stone table containing information on financial transactions in the City of David in Jerusalem, a study published in Atiqot, a peer-reviewed journal on Israeli history, has shown. Scientists date it to between the first century BC and the first century AD. The legible part of the stone contains names and numbers – for instance, one line has the name Shimon, which was very popular at the time, and mentions that Shimon had something to do with “money,” although it is not clear whether he was entitled to a monetary reward or, on the other hand, was in debt, as the researchers are unsure about the true purpose of the financial statement. However, it is suspected that stone table was a sort of salary list used by ancient HR. Experts in Israeli history are excited by the finding, despite perhaps appearing plain. As archeologists Esther Eshel and Nahshon Szanton put it, “At first glance, the list of names and numbers may not seem exciting, but to think that, just like today, receipts were also used in the past for commercial purposes, and that such a receipt has reached us, is a rare and gratifying find that allows a glimpse into everyday life in the holy city of Jerusalem.”
- Google has removed a game from its online store in Brazil which allowed players to trade and torture enslaved people, following criticism from figures in the South American country who say the US tech giant and the game’s developer should be held to account. The game – called ‘Slavery Simulator’ – casts the player in the role of a slave owner who can buy and sell black characters, and inflict various forms of torture on them. It was withdrawn from Google’s online store in Brazil on Wednesday, a little over a month after its release, but remains playable for the more than 1,000 people who downloaded it over the past four weeks, according to the Brazilian publication Globo.
- The US government may run out of money by June 9, Goldman Sachs economists have warned. The Treasury’s early June deadline for the debt ceiling looks “very accurate, in our view,” Alec Phillips and Tim Krupa told MarketWatch. According to their calculations, by June 2, the Treasury’s room to maneuver under the debt ceiling will barely exceed $30 billion – the minimum cash the Treasury has targeted in earlier debt-limit projections – and the funds will have run entirely dry by June 9, MarketWatch wrote on Friday.
- Senior Russian lawmaker Vyacheslav Volodin has branded US federal government debt a global pyramid scheme that is heading for an inevitable collapse. The comments come as Washington struggles to agree on raising its debt ceiling to avoid a default. “Just think about it, in 2023 interest payments on the US debt could reach $1.5 trillion – almost a third of all US budget revenue!” Volodin, who serves as chairman of Russia’s lower house of parliament, said in a Telegram post on Friday. “The US public debt is a global financial pyramid, built by Washington to defraud other nations. History has shown that all pyramid schemes eventually fail,” he added, warning that the dollar is becoming toxic. Countries dependent on the US dollar should start looking for alternatives such as national currencies, to reduce risks for their citizens,” Volodin concluded.
- One of Ukraine’s military or intelligence special units was “likely” behind the May 3 drone attack in Moscow, the New York Times reported on Wednesday citing anonymous US officials. US intelligence agencies have assessed this based in part on intercepted communications of both Russian and Ukrainian officials, according to the Times.
- Octopuses may have both good and bad dreams, just like humans do, a new study has claimed. In the survey, which has yet to be peer-reviewed, scientists from New York City’s Rockefeller University documented behavior by a captive male Brazilian reef octopus that that they say looks very similar to a nightmare. Reviewing the footage of the cephalopod named Costello, researchers noticed that the animal often changed colors and patterns as he slept, which prompted them to believe that he was “dreaming and physically reflecting the contents of its dream through its body language.” Some parts of the footage, though, showed Costello waking up with a start and then flinging his arms around and squirting out ink, the same as he would do in the wild when trying to escape a predator, according to the scientists.
- A mysterious boom has left South Carolinians scratching their heads after being woken up and shaken in their homes. The boom struck residents at around 8:40 a.m. on Tuesday in the state’s Lowcountry area. Following the mysterious boom, the South Carolina Emergency Management Division reached out to several agencies in an effort to investigate what triggered the event.
- Researcher Joanna Gorgol and her colleagues at the University of Warsaw have discovered that those who wake up earlier tend to be more religious than their night owl counterparts. But their studies also showed that those who are religious, tend to have a preference to rise early. The study looked at two separate groups of Polish adults: one group of 500 participants and another of 728. Both groups were evaluated on their preferences for the mornings, their conscientiousness, and their life satisfaction.
- A team of mathematicians from Canada and Egypt have used cutting edge scientific theory and a mind-boggling set of equations to work out what preceded the universe in which we live. In (very) simple terms they applied the theories of the world of quantum mechanics – to the whole universe – explained by general theory of relativity, and discovered the universe basically goes though four different phases. More importantly they discovered what came before this universe was.. another universe or more accurately another ‘cosmological phase’. Despite being infinite in size our universe is cyclical and has always existed in one of four stages.

Father Crespi’s Mysterious Collection
Depictions of amazing figures which associate America to Sumeria, loads of gold, symbols which instigate to an unknown language, more than 50,000 objects is exactly the account of Father Crespi collection. Italian Father Carlos Crespi Croci (1891-1982) was a missionary Salesian monk resided in a small town of Cuenca in Ecuador. The native inhabitants and the tribes of the region as a gesture of thanks gave him ancient artifacts. It is these artifacts which have been associated with having similarities to the civilization of the East. Some years later, Father Crespi opened a museum in associated with the Vatican in the Salesian School in Cuenca, which was one of the largest museums in Ecuador. After some time, however, the museum was burnt down. There have been rumors that the artifacts were destroyed and also that after the demise of Father Crespi, they were shipped to the Vatican.
