News Burst 4 January 2022 – Featured News
- The United States spent half a billion dollars and worked for 10 years to build the Panama Canal. But instead of cutting across the central American country, crews should have been digging down. Scientists recently discovered a hidden passageway 60 miles beneath Panama that stretches 900 miles. The find could solve some mysteries geologists have noticed in that area. This hidden passageway could explain why Panama has so few active volcanos, Live Science notes. There is a line of volcanos that runs along the west coast of Central America. It’s where two tectonic plates meet, which allows molten lava can push through in those areas. But this doesn’t happen in Panama. Scientists don’t know why this is or why materials from the Earth’s mantle show up much further away than current science can explain. David Bekaert, lead author of the paper that claimed this discovery, said a 900-mile-long conduit – effectively a tunnel – beneath Panama could be why. He compared ‘mantle wind’ pushing pieces of the Earth’s mantle through that conduit to how a blood vessel moves blood to different parts of the body.
- A man who crossed the inter-Korean border on Saturday has been identified as a North Korean returning home. No evidence of espionage has been found. South Korea’s military reported that on January 1, a person managed to cross border fences and race his way through the Demilitarized Zone before reaching North Korean territory. According to a defense ministry official, the man is thought to be the person seen in November 2020 surveillance footage entering South Korea using the same route. Upon arriving in South Korea, the man told intelligence officials in Seoul that he used to be a gymnast in North Korea and demonstrated his jumping skills, according to the news reports.
- In his new book, ‘Covert Legions: US Army Intelligence in Germany 1944-1949’, historian and author Thomas Boghardt claims that mistakes by an American spy could have helped the Nazis spread false information about Adolf Hitler’s Alpine redoubt. In one of the most successful disinformation campaigns of World War II, the Nazis convinced Western powers they were amassing weapons and 100,000 soldiers in the Austro-Bavarian Alps to stage a last stand for survival. Boghardt told The Guardian it wasn’t the Nazis who were responsible for the myth’s success, but actually a mistake by Allen Dulles, who later became head of the CIA and oversaw the Bay of Pigs disaster. The Germans are thought to have been able to intercept a cable sent by Dulles from the US Embassy in Berne after he continued to ignore warnings from Britain that the code he used had been cracked by the Nazis. Another successful myth saw Field Marshal Montgomery, one of Britain’s highest-ranking military figures, arrested by the Americans after the Germans convinced them someone was seeking to impersonate him.
- 2021 was a busy year in space exploration and technologies, with global superpowers and the mega-rich duking it out for mastery of the cosmos.
- The Jerusalem Post was apparently hacked on the anniversary of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani’s assassination by the US this week, with the newspaper framing the incident as a “direct threat to Israel.” The newspaper’s website fell to an alleged hacking attack in the early hours of Monday morning.
- El Salvador’s president, Nayib Bukele, predicts Bitcoin will double in price this year and reach $100,000 per coin amid official adoption as a sovereign currency. In a tweet on Sunday, Bukele – whose country last year became the first to embrace Bitcoin as a sovereign currency – pitched a couple of exciting predictions for the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization. He tweeted that Bitcoin may finally reach the long-sought $100,000 price tag sometime this year, while also musing that two more countries will adopt it as legal tender (or is it insider information?).
- Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro was taken to the hospital early Monday morning for treatment of a suspected intestinal obstruction. Bolsonaro was admitted to the Vila Nova Star Hospital in Sao Paulo, G1 news website said. The politician was stabbed during the election campaign in 2018, and has undergone four surgeries related to the incident.
- Bizarre neurological illness plagues dozen of young Canadians with no preexisting conditions are developing symptoms of a new disease as activists and families suspect a cover-up on the part of the local government. A whistleblower with Vitalité Health Network in New Brunswick told The Guardian on Sunday that symptoms include hallucinations, difficulty thinking, limited mobility, insomnia, and rapid weight loss.
Virginia Giuffre agreed not to sue anyone connected to Jeffrey Epstein who could be described as a “potential defendant”, a 2009 damages settlement against the sex offender shows. The document, disclosed by a New York court, reveals the financier paid her $500,000 (£371,000) to end her claim. Ms Giuffre is suing the Duke of York in a civil case for allegedly sexually assaulting her 20 years ago, when she was a teenager. He has consistently denied the claims.
- The first Russian-made plane of its kind, MC-21 has proven its airworthiness after years of delays due to Western sanctions. The Russian-made medium-haul passenger jet MC-21 has received its “type certificate,” paving the way to mass production of the aircraft. The cutting-edge new market entrant has been plagued by sanctions and multiple delays. The Irkut MC-21 is the first narrow-body, medium-haul passenger jet designed and built in Russia since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Conceived in the late 2000s, the plane is set to fill the niche that once belonged to the iconic 1970s Soviet Tu-154.
- Russia, the United States, China, France and Britain “consider the avoidance of war between Nuclear-Weapon States and the reduction of strategic risks as [their] foremost responsibilities” and confirm that their nuclear weapons are not targeting one another, the five countries said in a joint statement published Monday. “We intend to maintain and further strengthen our national measures to prevent unauthorised or unintended use of nuclear weapons. We reiterate the validity of our previous statements on de-targeting, reaffirming that none of our nuclear weapons are targeted at each other or at any other State,” the statement, which appeared on the websites of the Kremlin and the White House, said.
- According to the government of Nicolas Maduro, Venezuela has embarked upon a phase of economic recovery through the diversification of production and the rehabilitation of its petroleum activity. This comes in defiance of crippling economic sanctions. Venezuela’s state-owned oil company Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) has almost doubled its oil production from last year’s decades-low. PDVSA pumped an average of 824,000 barrels daily for November 2021, according to OPEC’s December 2021 Monthly Oil Market Report. The United States did not recognise the results of the election or the legitimacy of Maduro. Venezuelan opposition figure Juan Guaido, who proclaimed himself “interim president”, led an unsuccessful coup attempt in 2019, with the Donald Trump administration recognizing Guaido’s claims back in January 2019.
- Pangong Tso [Lake] was one of several friction points along the loosely demarcated Line of Actual Control (LAC) where India’s Army and China’s People’s Liberation Army clashed with stones and iron rods in 2020. The People’s Liberation Army has started building a bridge across Pangong Lake to cut the time it takes to reach Indian military posts at the lake’s southern bank. By having this bridge, the PLA is hoping to prevent the Indian Army from repeating “Operation Snow Leopard” which occurred in August 2020 to capture dominating heights in the southern bank of the 135km lake shared between India and China in Eastern Ladakh.
- Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial was largely seen as a continuation of the legal process against American millionaire and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein who was arrested in July 2019 and committed suicide a Manhattan jail cell the following month. Lisa Bloom, who represents several of Epstein’s alleged victims, told the Daily Mail that Maxwell’s conviction ought to be a warning for Prince Andrew. “Andrew’s accuser, Virginia Roberts Giuffre was not, as many expected, called as a witness against Maxwell”, Richard Fitzwilliams, a royal commentator and consultant, said. “There was speculation this might be because of possible inconsistencies in any testimony she might give. Andrew was hardly mentioned during the trial, only as a passenger on Epstein’s private jet and when photographs were disclosed showing Epstein and Maxwell at Balmoral. Andrew’s legal team has applied for her civil lawsuit against him for sexual assault to be dismissed”. “Because Prince Andrew is a senior member of the British royal family, he falls into one of the expressly identified categories of persons, i.e., royalty, released from liability under the Release Agreement, along with politicians, academicians, businessmen, and others allegedly associated with Epstein,” the lawyer Andrew B. wrote in a memo on 29 October. He insisted that the Queen’s son was “axiomatically among the releasees”.
- Prince Andrew may be stripped of his Duke of York title if he loses the sex abuse civil lawsuit filed against him by Virginia Giuffre, according to the Sunday Times. The royal household is purportedly discussing other options, such as sending the embattled royal into an “internal exile” of sorts, and requiring him to relinquish remaining links to any charities. The Duke had stepped back from royal duties, including most of his charity work, in 2019 “for the foreseeable future”. The decision followed heightened scrutiny over his relationship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
- A dense, distant magnetic star violently erupted, spitting out as much energy as our sun produces in 100,000 years, in just 1/10 of a second, according to observations an international team of researchers reported on 22 December in the journal Nature. The researchers had managed to catch one of these unpredictable flares and calculate oscillations in the brightness of the erupting magnetar, according to their statement translated from Spanish. The flare was detected on 15 April 2020 by the Atmosphere–Space Interactions Monitor (ASIM) instrument on the International Space Station. Its artificial intelligence (AI) zoomed in on the burst, offering the team an opportunity to analyse that brief energy surge.
- An online petition to have UK’s former Labour prime minister Tony Blair stripped of his recently awarded knighthood is rapidly gaining support, with over 350,000 people signing it in less than three days. “He was personally responsible for causing the death of countless innocent, civilian lives and servicemen in various conflicts. For this alone he should be held accountable for war crimes,” reads the petition posted on change.org.
- Thousands of Dutch protesters, unhappy with the new COVID-19 lockdown, defied a ban on gatherings on Sunday and organized a demonstration in Museum Square despite an order from Mayor Femke Halsema who declared the area off-limits to the public. The Dutch police said in a statement after the protest that, at the mayor’s request, law enforcement officers intervened and “a total of 30 suspects were arrested.” The arrests were made for public order violations, assault and weapon possession, according to the police.
- Ukrainian Facebook users have enjoyed a laugh at Defence Minister Oleksii Reznikov’s expense over an ill-fitting suit which made it appear as though he has breasts. Reznikov and President Zelensky took a group photo on Saturday after the president appointed General Yuri Galushkin as commander of the army’s territorial defence forces. However, all that Facebook users seemed able to focus on was Reznikov’s outfit.
- Clashes was erupted at an anti-pandemic curbs rally in the German town of Greiz in Thuringia on New Year’s Day, police said. Officers used pepper spray and batons against a crowd of some 400 people, who gathered in protest against COVID-19 limits for the unvaccinated, effective nationwide since Tuesday. Police said dozens of criminal charges had been filed against protesters for resisting police orders, causing bodily harm and ignoring social distancing rules.
- Riot police used batons and shields to disperse a crowd of several thousand who gathered in central Amsterdam earlier on Sunday to protest against draconian coronavirus restrictions and mandatory vaccinations. After the protesters broke a ban on public gatherings, Amsterdam’s mayor Femke Halsema issued emergency instructions, allowing police to clear Museum Square in the city centre.
- Asteroid 99942 Apophis, estimated to measure 340 metres (1,100 ft) across and identified by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) as one of the most hazardous asteroids that could impact Earth, will close in on our planet in the spring of 2029. The forecast, issued by the All-Russian Institute for Research of Civil Defence of the Emergencies Ministry of Russia, says that the asteroid will skim past Earth at a distance at which geostationary satellites are placed in orbit (approximately 35,700 km).

SpaceX’s internet service – Starlink – uses orbital satellites to provide its clients with access to the world wide web. It has turned out that Elon Musk’s Starlink dishes do not only bring the Internet but also attract cats. A Starlink customer shared a photo recently, showing five cats snuggling on one of the receiver dishes to stay warm in winter. “Starlink works great until the cats find out that the dish gives off a little heat on cold days,” the customer wrote.
