- The European Commission informed Apple of its preliminary view that the company may have abused its dominant position in mobile wallet markets. The suspicions are based on the investigation into Apple’s policies on Apple Pay that the European Commission has been conducting since June 2020. “We preliminarily found that Apple may have restricted competition, to the benefit of its own solution Apple Pay. If confirmed, such a conduct would be illegal under our competition rules,” Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager, who is in charge of competition policy, was quoted as saying in the press release.
- A former member of the National Technical Advisory Group of Immunisation, Jacob Puliyel, approached India’s supreme court and argued that the ruling by the state’s government that a person must be vaccinated to gain access to benefits or services is a violation of human rights and, therefore, unconstitutional. The Supreme Court of India on Monday said that no individual can be forced to receive a vaccination, adding that no state government can take a step that may violate the integrity of a person’s body.
- The Myrotvorets (lit. “Peacekeeper”) website publishes the personal info of so-called “enemies of Ukraine”. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s name has appeared on the notorious Ukrainian website Myrotvorets. The 58-year-old politician is listed as an “accomplice of Russian war criminals”, an “accomplice in the crimes of Russian authorities against Ukraine and its citizens”, for his “participation in acts of humanitarian aggression against Ukraine”, as an “anti-Ukrainian propagandist”, and for his general all-round “cooperation with the Russian aggressor”.
- Hunter Biden scathingly torched top Democratic campaign strategist David Axelrod as a “giant a** hole” in a 2015 email exchange with his business partner Eric Schwerin and then-Vice President Joe Biden’s deputy counsel Alexander Mackler, according to data extracted from the notorious “laptop from hell”, cited by Fox News Digital. At the time of the exchange, when speculation was rife over whether Joe Biden would consider a third run for the White House, Axelrod, a former senior adviser to ex-President Barack Obama, said he would advise the vice president against challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic party’s nomination. “I would not, because I know what it takes to put a presidential campaign together and it is late in the game. Secretary Clinton, for all her problems, some of them self-inflicted, still has a very high rating among Democrats, and that of course is what determines who the nominee will be, and a big head start”, Axelrod said on TODAY in August 2015.
- A rare copy of the so-called “Wicked Bible” that encourages adultery has been discovered in New Zealand, the University of Canterbury in Christchurch said on Monday. The artifact is one of the few surviving copies of a 1631 printing. “Until now it was thought that the handful that did were all to be found in the libraries of the British Isles and North America. But the University of Canterbury can now reveal a previously unknown copy of this remarkable book, discovered in Christchurch!” the university said in a statement. According to The Guardian, this copy was uncovered in 2018, but the university chose to keep quiet in order to give scholars and book conservators enough time to preserve and study the tome. The reason behind the “Wicked Bible” existence is still unclear, with theories ranging from sabotage to negligence. Although many such bibles contain detailed bloodlines as well as dates of owners’ births and deaths, this particular copy has just one unreadable name.
- The Japanese population remain split in half over the issue of revisiting the postwar constitution that enshrines Japan renouncing the possession of armed forces and denying war as a mean of resolving international disputes, according to the survey of the Japanese news agency Kyodo published on Monday. The survey revealed that despite rising tensions in the international arena and growing concerns over regional stability, the level of support for amending Article 9 of Japan’s constitution, which repudiates war and prohibits the possession of armed forces, among the Japanese remained almost the same as a year ago.
- Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has admitted that attending fundraising meetings with Jeffrey Epstein after the financier had already been convicted of soliciting sex from a minor in 2008 was “a huge mistake”. “At the time, I didn’t realise that by having those meetings it would be seen as giving him credibility,” the billionaire philanthropist said in an interview for The Sunday Times. Gates first met Epstein in 2011, inviting the financier to fundraising dinners that promoted the Gates Foundation.
- Norwegian tech business, Kongsberg, has announced plans to launch its own satellites so that it can monitor, among other things, seas in the North. A total of three satellites will give Kongsberg the opportunity to see which ships are in the area of the northern seas. In particular, ships wishing to remain hidden by switching off identification equipment will be exposed. The monitoring data will be sold on the commercial market. Although Norwegian authorities are seen as a natural customer, other countries may also be interested.
- Donald Trump held a Save America rally on Sunday in Greenwood, Nebraska to support of gubernatorial candidate Charles Herbster. The event drew thousands of people who chanted “USA”. Donald Trump has yet again shown off his moves as he danced to ‘Hold On, I’m Comin’ by Sam & Dave at the end of his Nebraska rally on Sunday. Thousands of supporters erupted in applause and gave a standing ovation. Trump hasn’t officially stated his intention to run again, but he has dropped several not-so-subtle hints in recent months that he could be planning a “triumphant” return to the White House.
- Spanish authorities detected Pegasus spyware in the mobile phones of Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and Defense Minister Margarita Robles.
- Finnish group Fennovoima said on Monday it had canceled its contract with Russian state-owned nuclear power giant Rosatom to build a nuclear power plant. The planned Hanhikivi-1 site was commissioned by Finnish-Russian consortium Fennovoima, in which Finnish stakeholders own two-thirds, and the rest is held by Rosatom subsidiary RAOS. The construction permit for the Hanhikivi-1 plant was set to be granted by the end of this year, with building due to start next year. However, international sanctions imposed against Russia over its military operation in Ukraine put the plans in jeopardy, with Finland’s minister of economic affairs, Mika Lintila, repeatedly saying it would now be “absolutely impossible” for the government to grant the permit.
- Some Hispanic voters in Arizona and Colorado who usually vote Democrat told Reuters that soaring inflation is causing them to seriously consider voting for Republicans. Even a small loss of support among Hispanics could mean the loss of the House of Representatives and possibly the Senate for Democrats.
- Texas Governor Greg Abbott is weighing a plan to invoke real war powers by declaring an “invasion” at the US southern border to get around a clause in the US Constitution. Lawyers for Abbott and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton met earlier this month to debate the plan, which would directly challenge the federal government, the New York Times reported. It would allow Texas state police to arrest and deport migrants, two people familiar with the discussion told the paper.
- Bill Gates reiterated his call to establish a global emergency response team operating under GERM (Global Epidemic Response and Mobilization), with an annual budget of at least $1 billion. Gates said the amount of money needed for the initiative is “very small compared to the benefit,” and called it a test of world leaders’ ability to “take on new responsibilities.” Last month, he gave a TED Talk in Vancouver to elaborate on the idea, also described in his book, saying he expects the group to consist of at least 3,000 doctors, epidemiologists, policy and communications experts, and diplomats operating under the direction of the WHO.
- Netflix said on Sunday that it has canceled the development of an animated series created by Meghan Markle as part of “strategic decisions” the streaming giant is making. However, the California-headquartered streamer said it will continue its work with Archewell Productions—the company formed by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex—on other projects, including a documentary series called “Heart of Invictus.” Archewell Productions signed a multiyear deal with Netflix in 2020 to make documentaries, docuseries, feature films, scripted shows, and children’s programming for an undisclosed figure.Earlier this month, Netflix revealed it has lost subscribers [not enough] for the first time since October 2011.
- While the Germans and Austrians throw their support behind a Russian oil embargo, the Italians are once again breaking with their EU peers and pushing for more flexibility to continue purchasing Russian energy, even if it requires converting their euros to rubles, as President Vladimir Putin has demanded. European energy companies should – provisionally, at least – be allowed to comply with Russian demands to pay for gas in rubles, according to remarks from Roberto Cingolani, the Italian minister in charge of the country’s energy security. But roughly an hour after the original headlines hit the tape, other Italian officials decided that they didn’t want to risk the wrath of their European peers (as talk of disunity proliferated), so they quickly got the word out and clarified that Italy has no concrete plans to pay for Russian energy in rubles.
- The Wall Street Journal reports that the US, Ukraine, and its allies are paying companies with spy satellites to collect intelligence on Russian troop movements. Western counties have worked with several firms that maintain hundreds of satellites making passes over Ukraine each day. While the satellites have different abilities, some can scan the entire country daily with a nine-foot resolution. Other companies collect intelligence through clouds and at night. HawkEye 360’s fleet of satellites can actively follow Russian troop movements. John Serafini, the firm’s CEO, said it has been following Russian forces using GPS jamming equipment. Maxar Technologies is contracting with various media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal. The firm provides journalists with images of a broad range of Ukraine with a 12-inch resolution. Officials have recently discussed giving Kiev more detailed intelligence as the battle moves to Ukraine’s eastern Donbas region.

Wernher Magnus Maximilian Freiherr von Braun was an engineer born in Germany shortly before the beginning of the First World War. He worked on rockets under Nazi German rule, with his team instrumental in creating the V-2 rocket. Before the war was over, he surrendered himself to US forces, and went on to have a long career at NASA, eventually becoming director of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, where he would work on rockets that would take humans to the Moon. In 1952, von Braun wrote a non-fiction book, The Mars Project, outlining how he believed an expedition to Mars would go. In the second half of the book which strays more into science fiction, is the bit that talks about an “Elon” ruling over Mars.
Elon Musk commented: “Are you sure it’s true?”

Dangerous Heatwave Conditions are affecting vast swathes of India since mid-April, bringing temperatures 4.5 – 8.5 °C (8 to 15 °F) above average in east, central and northwest India. India’s peak power demand in a day touched the all-time high of 204.65 GW on Thursday while various states warned they are lacking enough coal to maintain power production. Delhi Minister Satyendar Jain, for example, said the national capital had only one day’s worth of coal supply left. This is leading to a serious energy crisis, with this year’s power outages the worst in more than 6 years. From Jammu and Kashmir to Andhra Pradesh, Indians are facing power outages lasting from 2 to 8 hours or more. India is the world’s third-largest energy-consuming country, whose majority of energy demands are met by coal. This year’s crisis is exacerbated by prolonged early-season heatwaves and rising prices of coal.
