News Burst 8 January 2022 – Featured News
- Chinese technology conglomerate Tencent has reportedly added support for digital yuan to its WeChat Pay wallet, granting users the option to pay using China’s central bank digital currency (CBDC). To use the CBDC in transactions, WeChat users need to have already verified their identity via the e-CNY app, the digital yuan wallet application developed by the People’s Bank of China, China Daily reported on Thursday. Once activated, the option will allow users to pay with and receive the currency in WeChat. Developed by Tencent, WeChat is the dominant instant-messaging app in mainland China, with over a billion users. Along with Alipay, WeChat is often dubbed a ‘super app’, as it integrates a wide range of services.
- The word Kovid means scholar or learned and has been derived from the Hindu devotional hymn “Hanuman Chalisa” dedicated to Lord Hanuman, who is worshiped widely across India. “My name is Kovid and I’m not a virus”, reads the Twitter bio of Kovid Kapoor, an Indian entrepreneur and co-founder of Holidify, who has become the butt of jokes as netizens can’t get enough of his name and are flooding social media with hilarious memes and comic punches. From his friends cracking jokes over Kovid turning 30 on his birthday, to Kovid ordering Corona beer to Kovid leaving everyone cracked up at the Starbucks, he shared that whatever he did, and wherever he went, he became a laughing stock because of his name.
- For the first time ever, scientists were able to track a red supergiant in real-time during its final 130 days, watching the massive star’s rapid self-destruction and death throes before a violent explosion. It was previously believed that red supergiant stars remained calm and didn’t show any symptoms of approaching demise – like eruptions or luminous emissions – ahead of their collapse into a type II supernova. But a new study by astronomers at Northwestern University and the University of California, Berkeley suggests that things actually happen differently, having detected bright radiation coming from a red supergiant star before it exploded.
- Chinese scientists have built a wearable robot that can reportedly read a human mind by monitoring brain waves and muscle activity. Developers claim the machine was able to “recognize human intention” with 96% accuracy. Testing the device on factory workers, researchers from the Intelligent Manufacturing Innovation Technology Centre at China Three Gorges University apparently found that the volunteers did not need to issue verbal commands or perform gestures when they needed to grab a tool or a component. The developers noted that the robot reacted “almost instantly,” picking up the required object and placing it on the workstation, according to the South China Morning Post (SCMP).
- Archaeologists from the University of Seville and the Andalusian Institute of Historical Heritage claim to have discovered the lost Temple of Hercules Gaditanus. Using information they obtained from documentaries and aerial photographs, the researchers found a large rectangular structure submerged in the Bay of Cadiz. Built around the eighth or ninth centuries BCE, ancient records say the temple had massive columns and bronze statues depicting Hercules’ 12 labours. An eternal flame inside the temple was maintained by a priest.
- Norwegian servicemen will have to wear boxers, bras, and socks from their predecessors due to a shortage of clothing, which has been blamed on the coronavirus pandemic, local media reported. Previously during their service, female and male conscripts were given underwear that if they wanted could be given back. But now that the pandemic has brought about an unprecedented financial crisis and resulted in the shutdown of factories as well as transportation problems, the practice of returning underwear has become mandatory. Defence logistics spokesman Hans Meisingset told NRK broadcaster that the decision helps deal with the shortage of clothing. “The textiles are washed, cleaned and checked. What we distribute is in good condition”, he said.
- One of the jurors in Ghislaine Maxwell trial didn’t tell the court he was a victim of sexual abuse, The Telegraph reported, citing its sources. The man, who has used the name Scotty David in several interviews, told the media that he spoke about his childhood trauma with other jurors while they were deciding on the verdict in the case and that his story helped assuage doubts about the testimonies of the witnesses. “He did not fill the questionnaire out correctly, then there were several questions that should have picked up same subject”, the insider told the newspaper. The said question read: “Have you or a friend or family member ever been the victim of sexual harassment, sexual abuse, or sexual assault? (This includes actual or attempted sexual assault or other unwanted sexual advance, including by a stranger, acquaintance, supervisor, teacher, or family member)”.
- On 12 January, Russia and NATO will hold the first extensive security talks since Moscow was forced to withdraw envoys to the alliance in October 2021. The security meeting was prompted by the escalation around Ukraine and the Kremlin’s vocal concerns that the country might join NATO, leading to alliance troops being deployed at Russia’s borders. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has stated that the bloc will not under any circumstances sacrifice its basic principle that any country may choose its own defence alliances.
- Kamala Harris has reportedly chosen new communications director as staff exodus continues. The news comes amid media reports describing dysfunction and political infighting within the vice president’s office as well as frustration displayed by key aides in the West Wing of the White House. Harris’ team has played down the negative reports, calling them overblown. Symone Sanders, chief spokesperson for the vice president, resigned last December. Her resignation followed the departure of communications director Ashley Etienne and several other staff members. Axios wrote, citing its sources that one “recurring theme” among the staff members who left the VP’s ranks was “concern” and even “fear” about how working for Kamala Harris would affect their career. The departures coincided with media reports, which spoke of a dour and tense atmosphere within the vice president’s team, with staff reportedly being frustrated with dysfunctional operations. Other insiders blamed Harris for the tensions and frustration within the team.
- The string of wildfires that hit Colorado state has brought unprecedented destruction to the region’s infrastructure. Around 30,000 people were evacuated from the city of Louisville and the town of Superior before the communities were hit by the Marshall Fire, which destroyed 500 houses and over 25 square kilometres of land by New Year’s Eve. The blazes reached an unprecedented level, with Steve Fenberg, Colorado Senate Majority Leader, calling the Marshall Fire “the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history”. Strong winds of up to 105 mph (185 km/h) are fanning flames across the state amid a historic drought. So far, the most powerful wildfire in Colorado history was the 2013 fire, in which 511 homes were burned and destroyed.
- In the latest sign of Mexico’s out-of-control cartel violence, ten bodies were abandoned outside the governor’s office, in a public square lit up with Christmas decorations, in the north-central Mexican state of Zacatecas on Thursday. According to CBS News, the state governor, David Monreal, said the bodies of eight men and two women were crammed into a Mazda SUV outside his office; all of the deceased had signs of beating and bruising. “They came to leave them here … ” Monreal said.
- One of the biggest Chinese real estate developers, embattled giant Evergrande, announced on Monday it was once again suspending trading of its shares in Hong Kong because of a massive meltdown in one of its developments in mainland China. Drowning in $300 billion (€265 billion) in liabilities, Evergrande has struggled to repay bondholders and investors after Beijing’s crackdown suddenly turned off the liquidity taps. “At the request of the company, trading in the shares of the company was halted at 9:00 am on January 3, 2022, pending the release by the company of an announcement containing inside information,” the group said in a short statement on the Hong Kong stock exchange.
