News Burst 4 August 2022 – Featured News
- The International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service (IERS), which monitors the changes in our planet’s average day time and discrepancies linked to them, has registered a new record of Earth’s fastest full rotation this summer. Our planet beat its 2020 record by completing a full rotation 1.59 milliseconds faster than the standard 24 hours on June 29, 2022. It nearly beat it again on July 26 by ending the day 1.5 milliseconds early, which is also faster than the 2020 record of 1.47 milliseconds.
- University of Oxford and and University of Cambridge have agreed to return hundreds of Benin Bronzes, opening the possibility of the largest repatriation of looted artifacts from the United Kingdom to date. In January, Nigerian officials formally requested that Oxford’s Pitt Rivers and Ashmolean museums, and Cambridge’s Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (MAA), send back artifacts that entered their collections after being plundered by British troops in the 19th century from the Kingdom of Benin, the Daily Telegraph reported. There are 97 objects in the holdings at Oxford and 116 artifacts at Cambridge.
- The 100-page report — “Paving the Road to Hell? A Primer on the Role of the World Bank and Global Networks in Promoting Digital ID” — published by New York University’s (NYU) Center for Human Rights and Global Justice urged human rights organizations to heed the threats posed by a global push for digital IDs. The NYU researchers said many proponents — including the World Bank — portray digital IDs as a means to achieving greater inclusivity and environmental sustainability when, in fact, the systems are likely to do just the opposite. According to the report, the digital ID has been dressed up as an “unstoppable juggernaut and inevitable hallmark of modernity and development in the 21st century,” causing dissenting voices to be “written off as Luddites and barriers to progress.”
- Three activists affiliated with the organizations Rise Up 4 Abortion and Vets Rise 4 Roe were arrested at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art last week during a protest staged in front of the museum’s popular outdoor installation Urban Light (2008) by the late artist Chris Burden. Victoria Eggers and Lavi Bourne chained themselves to the work’s historic lampposts and spilled fake blood in front of the work on July 28. Their arrests, along with a third activist named Sean David Gorman, were captured on video and shared on social media. They were detained on charges of felony vandalism, according to a report by the Los Angeles Times.
- The Archbishop of Canterbury once again stressed that gay sex is still considered a sin, reaffirming a 1998 resolution. During the once-a-decade Lambeth conference, Justin Welby noted that for “a large majority” of the Anglican Church, questioning biblical teaching is “unthinkable”. In a letter to 650 bishops, the head of the church noted that he does not doubt resolution Lambeth 1.10, that defines marriage as “between a man and a woman” and rejects “homosexual practice as incompatible with scripture.” “For the large majority of the Anglican Communion the traditional understanding of marriage is something that is understood, accepted and without question, not only by Bishops but their entire Church, and the societies in which they live. For them, to question this teaching is unthinkable, and in many countries would make the church a victim of derision, contempt and even attack. For many churches to change traditional teaching challenges their very existence,” he said.
- The mighty Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai eruption last January blew out a record amount of water, worsening the ozone layer’s depletion, NASA scientists Luis Millan and his team have concluded. According to their study examining the water content blasted from the underwater eruption, the January 15 explosion sent around 146 teragrams (equal to 146 trillion grams) of water vapor into Earth’s stratosphere – enough to fill more than 58,000 Olympic-size swimming pools. The amount is equivalent to 10% of the water already present in the atmospheric layer, which sits 12 to 53 kilometers above the Earth’s surface, the study published in the Geophysical Research Letters estimated.
- More than 100 women working at a garment factory in India fell sick after inhaling unknown poisonous gas, media reported Wednesday. This is the second incident involving a suspected gas leak at the Brandix India Apparel Company’s factory in the state of Andhra Pradesh in less than two months after 300 women felt unwell in June, the Times of India reported. Around 4,000 women were reportedly working at the facility on Tuesday when some complained of nausea, headache, cough and suffocation. Brandix said there was an unpleasant odor and some women were hospitalized as a precaution. Their condition is said to be stable.
- The tenth NPT Review Conference kicked off on Monday to examine how the world’s players are adhering to the landmark treaty aimed at preventing the spread of nuclear weapons. At the conference’s opening, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres delivered a dire warning about nuclear threats in Asia, the Middle East and Europe. He also mentioned the ongoing special military operation in Ukraine, which was launched by Russia on February 24 to demilitarize and de-Nazify the Eastern European state. The representatives of the US, Japan and Germany likewise pointed the finger at Russia, groundlessly claiming that it has put the NPT at risk. They remained silent, however, on the US and NATO’s latest military efforts. “I think it is obvious, sadly, that for some time the UN has become a stooge of the West,” explained Bruce Gagnon, director of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space. “While the US is far behind in paying its dues to the UN, it still is able to use the international body to project and protect its own militaristic agenda (…) The UN secretary general appears reluctant or unable to directly criticize the US for its constant war mongering or its rejection of disarmament treaties.”
- According to Democratic strategists, the party is abound with fear that the president’s low approval ratings and failure to deal with the issues tormenting the country, especially its economy, might lead to a heavy defeat in the November midterm elections. Several House Democrats who are running for re-election this year have either refused to back Joe Biden as a potential 2024 presidential candidate or refrained from offering a definite answer when asked.
- French state-owned power generating company EDF said on Wednesday that it might impose restrictions on nuclear power production due to heat waves, which may affect the Saint-Alban and Golfech nuclear power plants (NPP), with one of the Tricastin NPP’s reactors planned to be shut down. “Due to the projected high temperatures in the Rhone Valley, production limitations are most likely to affect nuclear power production at the Saint-Alban NPP from August 6. Nonetheless, a minimum of 700MWh [megawatt hours] of energy will be supplied to the grid, with the figure subject to fluctuations depending on the grid needs,” the company said in a statement. Production cuts will also be introduced on the Golfech NPP starting on Thursday, while one of the reactors at the Tricastin NPP could be completely terminated, EDF added.
- US Senators Debbie Stabenow, John Boozman, Cory Booker and John Thune introduced the bipartisan legislation, known as the Digital Commodities Consumer Protection Act of 2022, the statement said. One in five Americans have used or traded digital assets, according to the statement. However, such markets lack the transparency and accountability that the US financial system has come to expect, Stabenow said in the statement. The legislation requires all digital commodity platforms to register with the CFTC, prohibit abusive trading practices and adhere to advertising and risk disclosure standards, the summary also said.
- [What?] Low to moderate levels of stress can help individuals develop resilience and reduce the risk of them developing mental health disorders, like depression and antisocial behaviors, a study published in Psychiatry Research revealed. Assaf Oshri, the lead author of the study and an associate professor at the College of Family and Consumer Sciences, shares that some levels of stress may help develop coping mechanisms. “It will allow you to become a more efficient and effective worker and organize yourself in a way that will help you perform,” Oshri said to the Indian news agency ANI.
- Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has deleted her tweet about “eliminated” Russian soldiers in Ukraine after accusations of “glorifying war”. On Tuesday, Sturgeon retweeted a Ukrainian Defense Ministry post. It claimed that the “total combat losses of the enemy” included “41,170 of eliminated personnel.” As the Ukrainian military’s post had a quote from Scottish poet Robert Burns’ ‘Scots Wha Hae’, once considered as Scotland’s unofficial national anthem, Sturgeon added a hashtag ‘robertburns’ to the post, along with ‘#solidarity’ and a Ukrainian flag. “The First Minister of Scotland should not be glorifying war,” Labour MSP Mercedes Villalba tweeted, adding that it is possible to oppose it without “celebrating” the deaths of people and that Sturgeon should delete the post and apologize for it.
- Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky said on Tuesday that the fighting in Donbass was “hell,” claiming that Kiev’s military remained heavily outgunned and even outnumbered by Russia and appealing to the US and its allies for even more weapons such as the HIMARS rocket launchers. In a five-minute address to Ukrainians, Zelensky thanked US President Joe Biden and NATO for sending the rocket artillery, calling it “very effective” and vowing to inflict “more painful losses” on the Russians, whom he described as a “horde” of invaders. “The word ‘HIMARS’ has become almost synonymous with the word ‘justice’ for our country,” Zelensky said. Zelensky added that he was expecting even more weapons from the West and thanked the Ukrainian diplomats trying to arrange for additional shipments. “Yet we are unable to break the Russian army’s advantage in artillery and manpower, and this is very much felt in the fighting, especially in Donbass. Peski, Avdeevka, other directions … It’s just hell there. It cannot even be described in words,” the Ukrainian president added.
- The world’s longest-living vertebrate is the Greenland shark – the fact they can live up to 500 years is said to be believable because they live in freezing cold water and thus have a slow metabolism. You can imagine the surprise of some researchers, then, when they found a suspected Greenland shark (Somniosus microcephalus) casually cruising around a coral reef off Belize. The bizarre sighting marks the first time a sleeper shark (the family in which Greenland sharks sit) has ever been recorded in the western Caribbean. It was discovered by researchers from Florida International University’s Predator Ecology and Conservation Lab while working with local fishers to tag tiger sharks.

Artifacts From Maravillas
The Nuestra Señora de las Maravillas (Our Lady of Wonders) sank with a cargo of gold, silver, and gems on the western side of the Little Bahama Bank in 1656. The Spanish galleon was part of a fleet sailing to Spain from Havana with royal and privately-consigned treasures from the Americas. Failing to navigate shallow waters, however, it collided with the flagship of the fleet and hit a reef. Of the 650 people on board, only 45 survived.
