News Burst 28 April 2023 – Featured News
- Amazon shoppers are being urged to beware scammers who are sending out cheap scarves to random addresses to try and generate fake reviews. Consumer experts at Which? have warned many people are receiving unsolicited “Suzhichou” branded scarves they didn’t order. Once the item has been received, the dodgy seller can then leave a five-star review on their own profile to boost their rating. This is all part of a “brushing” scam, which is where sellers submit fake orders in order to create illicit reviews. By creating fake sales, this makes the seller rank higher in search results.
- British regulators have blocked Microsoft’s $69 billion deal to buy video game maker Activision Blizzard over worries that the move would stifle competition in the cloud gaming market. The UK’s Competition and Markets Authority said in its final report Wednesday that “the only effective remedy” to the significant loss of competition that the deal would result in “is to prohibit the Merger.” “Gaming is the UK’s largest entertainment sector,” Martin Coleman, the authority’s chairman said in a statement. “Cloud gaming is growing fast with the potential to change gaming by altering the way games are played, freeing people from the need to rely on expensive consoles and gaming PCs and giving them more choice over how and where they play games. This means that it is vital that we protect competition in this emerging and exciting market.”
- The United Nations cultural agency has named the “bird language” of Black Sea villagers in northern Turkey as an endangered part of world heritage in need of urgent protection. About 10,000 people, mostly in the Canakci district of Giresun Province, use the language – a highly-developed system of whistling – to communicate across long distances in their rugged mountain terrain. The language joins the “List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in Need of Urgent Safeguarding” because of the impact of social and technological change, Unesco says, singling out the increasing use of mobile phones as a “key threat to its survival”. Turkey’s Culture Minister Numan Kurtulmus welcomed the move, tweeting his congratulations to his “fellow Black Sea coast residents who have kept this culture alive”.
- Elon Musk has inadvertently revealed what appears to be a secret “burner” Twitter account that the billionaire has used to make under-the-radar comments about Tesla, Joe Biden, and the collapsed cryptocurrency exchange FTX. Mr Musk accidentally revealed the account, @Ermnmusk, when tweeting a screenshot of his Twitter settings menu to advertise the platform’s subscription service. The second handle has the screen name Elon Test and its profile picture appears to be of his son X. Research suggests the picture did not exist elsewhere on the internet until the existence of the account emerged.
- A cat who alerts his deaf owner to visitors and phone calls is in the running for a national award. Zebby, a two-year-old black-and-white cat from Chesterfield, in Derbyshire, taps his owner Genevieve Moss’s face to alert her to put on her hearing aid. Ms Moss said: “Without my hearing aid, I can’t hear anything, but now I have Zebby to help me.” Zebby is one of 12 finalists in the National Cat Awards, which is due to be held on 17 July in London.
- Shares in First Republic Bank plunged another 30% on Wednesday following a wipeout one day previously, after the struggling US lender revealed that depositors had withdrawn more than $100 billion in the first quarter, fueling fears of further bank collapses in the US. The concerns follow the failures of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank in March, leaving the US banking sector facing its biggest crisis of confidence since the 2007-2008 financial crash.
- Tucker Carlson has released a video tearing into American news outlets, in his first appearance since parting ways with Fox News, saying genuine debate on major issues is simply “not permitted” in US media. In a clip shared to Twitter on Wednesday evening, the former Fox host delivered a monologue similar to those heard on his long-time show, ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’, even posting the video to coincide with his previous timeslot. While he did not directly address his reported firing from Fox News earlier this week, Carlson launched into a scathing criticism of the mainstream media, saying most discussions on TV news shows are “irrelevant” and “unbelievably stupid,” while key subjects go unmentioned.
- Slovakian farmers lost about €200 million as a result of the vast influx of Ukrainian agricultural produce into the country, the Minister of Agriculture Samuel Vlchan revealed on Wednesday as cited by the national news agency TASR. Last year, the EU lifted tariffs and quotas for Ukrainian agricultural produce and worked to facilitate its exportation, in an attempt to support Kiev financially. However, Eastern European nations have faced protests as local farmers have struggled to compete with cheaper imports. “Processing of grain and oilseeds alone led to financial damages of about €200 million sustained by Slovak farmers,” Vlchan said, adding that the nation had to introduce additional security measures at the borders.
- Pope Francis has allowed women to vote at this year’s Synod of Bishops, a decision that will see women shape Church policy for the first time in history. Catholic leaders stressed, however, that the bishops will still call the shots. The decision was announced by the Vatican on Wednesday. In a statement, the Church said that 70 “non-bishops” will vote at the meeting in October, 50% of whom will be women. This group will include “priests, deacons, consecrated men and women, [and] laity,” the statement read.
- Like gravitational waves (GWs) and gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), fast radio bursts (FRBs) are one of the most powerful and mysterious astronomical phenomena today. These transient events consist of bursts that put out more energy in a millisecond than the Sun does in three days. While most bursts last mere milliseconds, there have been rare cases where FRBs were found repeating. While astronomers are still unsure what causes them. Despite their mysterious nature, FRBs are ubiquitous and the best estimates indicate that events arrive at Earth roughly a thousand times a day over the entire sky. None of the theories or models proposed to date can fully explain all the properties of the bursts or the sources.

M87 Black Hole
A black hole has been pictured expelling a powerful jet for the first time. The image shows a glowing circle at the centre of a galaxy known as Messier 87 (M87), around 55 million light-years from Earth. Emerging from the black hole is a large bright jet connected with the matter swirling around it.
Scientists used data gathered from more than a dozen telescopes worldwide to piece together the picture. The M87 black hole is supermassive, with a mass 6.5 billion times that of our sun and is larger and more luminous than our Milky Way. (Credit: R.–S. Lu SHAO, E. Ros MPIfR, S. Dagnello NRAO/AUI/NSF)
