News Burst 7 February 2023 – Featured News
- A massive 7.4-magnitude earthquake hit Kahramanmaras Province, central Turkey, at 01:17 GMT on Monday. The quake was followed by dozens of aftershocks, with the strongest one having a magnitude of 6.6. Dozens of buildings have collapsed across Turkey, and the death toll continues to goes up as rescue workers search for survivors. The massive earthquake also caused multiple buildings to collapse in Syria, leading to multiple deaths. It was also felt in Damascus and Latakia in Syria, according to a local newspaper. The earthquake was felt across the region, with tremors noted by people as far as Baghdad, Iraq, and Beirut, Lebanon, hundreds of kilometers away. Israelis in Tel Aviv also reported feeling the quake. According to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre, the quake was felt in Egypt, Georgia, Romania.
- In both Türkiye and Syria, the quake caused damage to key infrastructure. In the Turkish Kilis Province, natural gas pipelines ruptured, with the fuel bursting into large plumes of flame, according to footage circulating online. Operator BOTAS said it cut the flow, but pressurized gas in the pipeline continued to feed the fires. In Syria, a refinery in the city of Baniyas, one of the largest in the country, had to be shut down for at least 48 hours due to cracks in the chimney of its power unit, the Ministry of Oil and Mineral Resources reported. Hundreds killed, infrastructure and historic sites damaged.
- Several videos posted on social networks and then shared by hundreds of people around the world show the flashes in the sky just during the earthquake that hit central Turkey. Many have thought of lightning which, according to a centuries-old vulgate, would be seen precisely during an earthquake.
- Ryan Graves, a former US Navy fighter pilot who is now chair of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) UAP Integration & Outreach Committee (UAPIOC), was the first pilot to go public about his UAP sightings. In a Sunday op-ed in The Hill, a federal government-focused newspaper, he urged others to do the same. “I have seen for myself on radar and talked with the pilots who have experienced near misses with mysterious objects off the Eastern Seaboard that have triggered unsafe evasive actions and mandatory safety reports,” Graves wrote. An earlier document from 2020 attempted to compile all UAP reports made over the previous decades, and the document published last month – which had data current in August 2022 – noted a massive increase in reports, especially from fighter pilots like Graves.
- In May 2022, Daniel Motaung, a former outsourced Facebook content moderator, became the claimant in a legal case against Meta*, Facebook’s parent company, and its Kenya-based outsourcing partner Sama, accusing the two firms of forced labor, human trafficking, union busting, and failure to provide “adequate” mental health support. The case is considered the first-ever of its kind to legally challenge Big Tech outsourcing activity across the globe. Last month, Sama, founded in 2008, announced discontinuing its content moderation services it provides to social media platforms starting March 2023, and said its future activities would focus only on labelling work, also known as “computer vision data annotation.” The company also revealed its plan to lay off 3% of its staff due to the “current economic climate,” promising to offer “several support programs for those impacted.” Later, Meta contracted Luxembourg-based, Majorel, which formerly worked as a content moderator for TikTok in the Middle East and North Africa, to replace Sama in moderating Facebook content in Sub-Saharan Africa.
- The company OpenAI’s ChatGPT language model, launched in late November 2022, met with mixed reactions due to its ability to mimic human conversations and generate unique texts based on user prompts. Australian Labor MP Julian Hill has claimed that artificial intelligence (AI) could be used for “mass destruction,” in the first-ever parliamentary speech in the country part-written by ChatGPT, an AI-powered chatbot. The lawmaker called for a white paper or a probe to assess all the “risks and benefits” of AI, which he argued could result in students cheating, disinformation, and uncontrollable military applications, among other challenges.
- Twenty-three Thai tourists, who arrived at the international airport Muan in southeastern South Korea last week, went missing and out of contact, South Korean media reported on Monday citing the Justice Ministry. The ministry stated that 174 tourists from Thailand had arrived at the Muan airport on a charter flight from Bangkok on January 30 to visit main sightseeing places in the province South Jeolla, however, 23 of them missed the return flight scheduled for Sunday, local news agency reported. Ten of them disappeared shortly after the arrival from Thailand, while the rest 13 left their group and went missing on the fourth day of the sightseeing tour, the news outlet reported. The Justice Ministry said it was making every possible effort to find the missing Thais. The reason for their disappearance remains unclear.
- Ahead of President Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech, more than a half of Americans say that he has not accomplished much during his tenure, according to a poll released on Monday. The nationwide poll of 1,003 adults, conducted from January 27 to February 1, found that 62% of Americans think Biden has accomplished “not very much” or “little or nothing.” The results show a stark partisan split — 93% of Republicans fall in this group, compared to 22% of Democrats. Biden scored poorly on various issues, ranging from lowering prescription drug costs to improving infrastructure.
- Although conceding that the economic input from unskilled immigrants is lower than that from educated ones, a recent Finnish business study has nevertheless suggested that even low-skilled immigration is ultimately beneficial as the country struggles with spiraling demographic woes. A study by the Research Institute of the Finnish Economy (ETLA), a business-backed think tank, has estimated that immigration to the Nordic country should nearly triple to stabilize the size of the workforce. This would mean a spike in net migration from the present levels of about 15,000 to about 44,000 people per year.
- Thousands of Danes gathered in the capital city of Copenhagen on Sunday 5 February to protest against the government’s plans to scrap a popular public holiday to help replenish the country’s war chest. The so-called Great Prayer Day is a Christian holiday that dates back to 1686 and falls on the fourth Friday after Easter. Abolishing the holiday was first proposed in December in a bid to help raise tax revenues for higher military spending in the wake of the conflict in Ukraine, which swept Denmark’s stockpiles of weapons clean and emptied its defense coffers, as Copenhagen became one of Kiev’s most committed allies in Europe.
- An English waste firm called ‘Lord of the Bins’ has been ordered to change its name by the company that owns the licensing rights to JRR Tolkien’s iconic fantasy titles. The legal dispute is the latest in a series of skirmishes between Middle-Earth Enterprises and small businesses paying homage to Tolkien’s work. Based in Brighton, ‘Lord of the Bins’ is a two-man business that collects household and commercial waste. Its owners, Nick Lockwood and Dan Walker, told The Sun last week that they recently received a cease and desist letter from Middle-Earth Enterprises ordering them to rename their company and drop their slogan: “One ring to remove it all.”
- Microplastics have been found for the first time in human vein tissue, a team of researchers from the University of Hull revealed last week. Five distinct types of microplastic were discovered in samples taken from the saphenous (leg) veins of patients undergoing heart bypass surgery. “We were surprised to find them,” Professor Jeanette Rotchell said in a press release accompanying the paper’s publication in the journal PLoS One. “We already know microplastics are in blood…but it was not clear whether they could cross blood vessels into vascular tissue and this work would suggest they can do just that.” The UK-based researchers found an average concentration of 15 particles of plastic per gram of vein tissue, similar to or higher than the levels found in lung and colon tissue, but observed that the shape and types of plastic found in the vascular tissue was markedly different from other tissue types.
- We know that planets rotate, but what about the universe as a whole? Although people throughout antiquity had argued that the heavens rotate around the world, in 1949, mathematician Kurt Gödel was the first to provide a modern formulation of a rotating universe. He used the language of Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity to do so, as a way of honoring his friend and neighbor at Princeton, Einstein himself. But this process of academic “honoring” went in a different direction than you might suspect, because Gödel used the example of a rotating universe to show that general relativity was incomplete.

Although the US claims that the unmanned balloon was being used for espionage purposes, China insists the airship was a civilian craft engaged in scientific research that was blown off course by high winds. The US navy is trying to recover the wreckage of the suspected Chinese surveillance balloon that was downed off the coast of South Carolina on Saturday, General Glen VanHerck, US Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command, has said. It is believed that a successful recovery will give the US insight into China’s spying capabilities, though US officials have downplayed the balloon’s impact on national security.
