News Burst 30 July 2022 – Featured News
- The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientists were exploring the depths of the Atlantic Ocean floor when they somehow came across a strange line of holes. A diving robot discovered the holes last Saturday. This happened during an ocean exploration of the Azores plateau in the Atlantic Ocean. However, scientists have no idea where these holes come from.
- The Biden administration is aiming for a mid-September rollout for reformulated Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 booster shots, after both companies promised they would be able to deliver doses by then, according to the New York Times, citing people familiar with the deliberations. The new versions are expected to perform better against then now-dominant (yet far more mild than Delta) BA.5 Omicron subvariant, though the Times notes that data on the reformulated shots is still preliminary. As such, federal officials have decided not to expand eligibility for the next round of existing boosters this summer – which have only been approved for Americans over 50, or those over the age of 12 who have immune deficiencies. Dr Fauci, interestingly enough, apparently didn’t get his way, as the Times reports that he was pushing for more of the current vaccine to go into arms before the reformulated version is ready.
- German authorities are scrambling ahead for what could be a hellacious winter of natural gas shortages and skyrocketing prices by announcing new energy-saving measures in cities across the country, reported The Guardian. Hanover in northwest Germany turned off hot water in showers and bathrooms at public buildings and leisure areas this week. Municipal buildings in the city will be heated to only 20C (68F) between Oct. 1 – Mar. 31. The use of portable air conditioners and heating fans will be prohibited. “The situation is unpredictable,” Hanover Mayor Belit Onay said. “Every kilowatt hour counts, and protecting critical infrastructure has to be a priority.”
- The BBC carried a story this week with the headline ‘Covid origin studies say evidence points to Wuhan market’. Bizarrely the paper in Science they are referring to, by Michael Worobey and colleagues, says no such thing. It says: ‘the observation that the preponderance of early cases were linked to the Huanan market does not establish that the pandemic originated there’. All three of the scientists quoted in the BBC story have been highly dismissive about even discussing the possibility that the pandemic began as an accident in a Wuhan laboratory. Their vested interest is clear: they worry that the reputation of their field of virology would be threatened by such a discussion. But the many scientists who say such a debate is needed are largely ignored by the BBC: none are quoted in this week’s article. ~ Matt Ridley
- Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) criticized the FBI on July 26, alleging that the bureau was “weaponized” against two U.S. senators when it arranged an intelligence briefing in August 2020. Johnson’s criticism was based on new revelations that surfaced a day earlier, when Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) divulged that certain FBI officials had a “scheme” to wrongly label “derogatory information” on Hunter Biden as disinformation, based on what his office learned from “highly credible whistleblowers.” By inaccurately labeling verified evidence as disinformation, FBI officials halted investigative activities related to Hunter Biden in 2020. “If these recent whistleblower revelations are true, it would strongly suggest that the FBI’s August 6, 2020 briefing was indeed a targeted effort to intentionally undermine a Congressional investigation,” Johnson wrote in a letter obtained by Just the News. The letter was sent to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
- CEO of Black Rock Larry Fink really has let all of those trips to Davos go to his head. He and BlackRock have urged the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) to modify its proposed greenhouse-gas emissions disclosure rule. That standard Fink megalomania comes not from the request itself, but from its grounds. He does not ask that it be withdrawn because it is illegally beyond the SEC’s statutory remit, though it surely is, especially in light of a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling. He doesn’t seek its withdrawal because it will create massive expense for no possible benefit, though that’s true too. He doesn’t even oppose the rule because it will harm small farmers, small businesses and small investors while aggregating wealth and opportunity to his own private-equity class. (Well, no: of course not that.) Rather, Fink’s objection to the rule is that it deviated from the disclosure demands that have issued from him – from him and from Mike Bloomberg and from the self-appointed New Ruling Class – embodied this time as the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). These new malefactors of great self-regard, you see, don’t care for it when representatives of elected government dare to contradict the commandments of the World Economic Forum (WEF) set. The TCFD, like the Sustainable Accounting Standards Board and the WEF, is just an agglomeration of billionaires who have decided that they’d quite like the world to be run according to their personal policy preferences – thank you very much – and that they don’t intend to subject themselves to indignities like getting elected in order to achieve that end. ~ Scott Shepard
- French automaker Renault estimates it lost €2.3 billion ($2.34 billion) in the first half of this year as a result of pulling out of Russia, its second-biggest market, the company said in its financial report published on Friday. “The result of discontinued operations represents a loss of €2.3 billion in 2022 H1, mainly due to the impairment of the property, plant and equipment, intangible assets and goodwill of AVTOVAZ and Renault Russia as well as the impairment of specific assets held by the other entities of the Group and the result of disposals on the Russian entities sold,” the report reads. Renault suspended operations in Russia back in March, shortly after the start of the country’s military operation in Ukraine. Then, in May, Renault sold its 100% stake in Renault Russia and its 68% stake in Russian carmaker AVTOVAZ. The company’s assets were transferred to Russian state ownership on May 16. Renault President Jean-Dominique Senard at the time called the decision painful but necessary to protect Renault’s Russian employees.
- Mark Zukerberg, co-founder of the social media giant Facebook and its parent Meta Platforms, suggested on Wednesday that the US economy is seeing a downturn and that his company will have to face some austerity in the near future. “We seem to have entered an economic downturn that will have a broad impact on the digital advertising business,” Zuckerberg said, as Meta reported a steeper than expected decline in revenue. The company will hire less, Zuckerberg suggested, saying that the situation was “worse than it was a quarter ago” due partly to current inflation and rising interest rates. The company’s shares have lost about half their value since the beginning of the year.
- The German city of Hannover has taken some drastic measures in an attempt to reduce energy consumption as the nation is bracing for a looming energy crisis. Hannover authorities gave the city’s sports enthusiasts the cold shower – quite literally – on Monday when they announced hot water would be switched off in all of the city’s public buildings, including sports halls, gyms, and pools from now on. Public employees will also have to wash their hands with cold water while at work under the new regulations. Under the new rules, the maximum room temperature in public buildings, including day-care centers, is limited to 20 degrees Celsius. In sports halls and gyms, it cannot exceed 15 degrees Celsius – a list of regulations published on the official city website says.
- The Swedish government has proposed lowering the age threshold for changing one’s legal gender in the population register from 18 to 16. The suggestion is part of the referral to the Legislative Council concerning a new gender identity law. The current gender identity law, introduced some 50 years ago, was the first of its kind in the world, and its replacement has long been discussed and requested by LGBT organizations as well as several parliamentary parties. Social Affairs Minister Lena Hallengren emphasized that the novel approach distinguishes between the legal and the medical sphere. “It is one thing to change legal gender, and we make the assessment in favor of lowering the age limit from 18 to 16 years. When we, on the other hand, talk about medical sex, which is preceded by gender-affirming treatments and medical interventions, the age limit remains,” Lena Hallengren told Swedish Radio.
- Facebook’s parent company Meta spent $10 million and $20 million on news partnerships with the Wall Street Journal and The New York Times respectively, as well as $3 million on a deal with CNN. Recently, however, Meta apparently decided to reassess its priorities, with the company’s VP of media partnerships Campbell Brown reportedly telling staffers they are shifting resources from news products to other, more creative initiatives. A lot has changed since we signed deals three years ago to test bringing additional news links to Facebook News in the US,” a spokesperson for Facebook told Axios. “Most people do not come to Facebook for news, and as a business it doesn’t make sense to over-invest in areas that don’t align with user preferences.”
- And a bit of news from another planet to wrap up Friday’s issue: NASA plans to fly geological rock samples that the Perseverance Rover has been collecting on Mars back to Earth on an unmanned spacecraft in 2033. According to NASA scientists, the Perseverance rover has already sealed 11 samples of rock from the Jezero Crater, where it has been operating. The Perseverance landed in Mars’ Jezero Crater in February 2021 on a truly historic mission: to search for signs of past and present life on the red planet. No doubt, the rock samples that will be delivered in 2033 will shed light on at least some of the multiple mysteries the red planet has been keeping for billions of years.

New smart city agenda 2030 building called line, reminds me of Snowpiercer dystopian movie. Their excuse is “green agenda”. Now I don’t know how they think to pack 8 billion people into new eco-cities, unless they reduce the population to a “sustainable level” In that movie they also eat bugs for food without even realizing it, am sure this will happen in that place as well. @awakenedspecies

The photographs were taken in 1912 in Antartica by Captain Robert Scott and his crew. However, the photos were classified as soon as they returned to their base and reported the results. Scott and his crew were then reported missing. Since then, it has been a restricted area, with only a few governments around the world allowed to conduct limited research.
