- The European Commission wants tech companies like Google, Facebook and TikTok to start labeling content created by artificial intelligence without waiting for digital laws to come into effect. Text, video and audio created and manipulated by artificial intelligence tools like ChatGPT and DALL-E have been increasingly spreading online. The Commission is now calling on dozens of large tech companies that are part of its voluntary anti-disinformation charter to make it easier for people to distinguish facts from fiction. “Signatories who have services with a potential to disseminate AI-generated disinformation should in turn put in place technology to recognize such content and clearly label this to users,” Vice President for Values and Transparency Věra Jourová said Monday, as previously reported in Brussels Playbook.
- A Finnish millionaire has been slapped with an eye-watering fine of 121,000 euros ($195,796) for speeding. Anders Wiklöf, the chairman of a diverse holding company, found himself in hot water when he was caught driving at 82kph in a 50kph zone. In 2018 he was fined 63,680 euros (A$102,000) for driving too fast. Unfortunately for Mr Wiklöf his wealth and status means he pays more for traffic offences. In Finland, fines for speeding are calculated based on the offender’s daily disposable income, typically amounting to half of their daily salary. This method ensures that the punishment fits the individual’s financial capabilities. With Mr Wiklöf’s company, Wiklöf Holding, valued at an impressive $10 million, his fines are considerably more than the average hoon.
- Olivia Lipkin She’s 25, from San Francisco, and was writing content for a company until April, then she was fired. On the other side of the United States, in Bloomingdale, Illinois, there is Eric Fein. She is 34 years old and for $60 an hour she writes product descriptions on the web. In March clients tell him they don’t need him anymore and his copywriting business collapses. The reason for both Olivia and Eric is the same: ChatGPT. Now he is trying to become a hydraulicand she one dog sitter, as they explained to the Washington Post. And this could be just the beginning. In March, Goldman Sachs released a report showing how artificial intelligence could replace 300 million full-time jobs. At the forefront are designers, blockchain experts, pollsters and even copywriters.
- CNN has parted ways with CEO Chris Licht a year after he promised to revive the floundering news network as a force for serious journalism, David Zaslav, the CEO of the network’s parent company Warner Brothers Discovery, told employees on Wednesday. Licht will be replaced on an interim basis by a group of senior CNN execs led by Amy Entelis, the one-time deputy of his polarizing predecessor, Jeff Zucker. Before his ouster last year, Zucker oversaw the transformation of CNN from a relatively neutral news network to a virulently anti-Trump opinion platform – a transformation Licht was supposedly tasked with reversing.
- Schools in Nairobi, Kenya have started to apply virtual reality technology to educate children. A local educational center called Ukwenza VR is behind the initiative to introduce VR in schools in the country. “Ukwenza VR is about giving children the power of presence,” said Njeri Ndonga, the co-founder and CEO of Ukwenza VR. “A lot of learning happening right now in the world is very theoretical. Whatever is in their textbooks, they can get to visit that place and experience it and that improves their learning so that they can improve knowledge retention. They can improve their overall ability to remember information but also their interaction with the content.”
- The EU is experiencing “solidarity fatigue” towards Ukrainian refugees, the European Commission has warned in a report. The outflow of cash from bloc member governments to refugees is causing resentment, according to the research. Despite the “unprecedented outpouring of solidarity” shown by EU citizens to Ukrainian refugees, “what we might call ‘solidarity fatigue’ is beginning to set in in some member states,” EU Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson told a press conference on Tuesday. In the report, special EU adviser on Ukraine Lodewijk Asscher notes that “the cost of living crisis has hit low- and medium-income families in host societies,” which are already struggling to integrate the roughly four million Ukrainian refugees in their care. Of this number, only 1.3 million are in any kind of employment, EU Jobs and Social Rights Commissioner Nicolas Schmit told EuroNews.
- Last week, Chinese President Xi Jinping warned the country’s National Security Commission in stark terms of the grave security concerns facing the nation. The phrase “worst-case scenarios,” when applied to a confrontation between China and the US, evokes apocalyptic images akin to the famous video game series Fallout – set to become a TV series this year. In fact, some of its wilder aspects aside, this 25-year-old franchise may offer a valuable perspective on the current situation. ~ Bradley Blankenship
- The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has asked a federal court to issue a temporary restraining order to freeze the US assets of cryptocurrency exchange Binance, Reuters reported on Tuesday, citing a filing in a Washington DC federal court. The motion comes a day after the regulator sued Binance and its CEO Changpeng Zhao, filing 13 charges alleging that “Zhao and Binance entities engaged in an extensive web of deception, conflicts of interest, lack of disclosure, and calculated evasion of the law,” according to the SEC press release.
- Russian tech giant Yandex has launched a pilot unmanned taxi service which will operate in one of Moscow’s largest districts. Self-driving cars are set to be integrated into the platform’s regular ride-hailing app. Initially, the vehicles will drive passengers between 40 predetermined points in the southwestern Yasenevo district of the Russian capital, the company said on Wednesday. The trips will not be solo, however, as national law currently requires a human to supervise an algorithm-piloted car at all times. Potential customers were invited to opt in for the test through the Yandex website. They will then get the option to call a robotaxi via their phone.
- Many nations across the world do not share the West’s assessment of the ongoing conflict between Moscow and Kiev, German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock admitted on Tuesday. According to the minister, the conflict has garnered less interest in many parts of the world and she has even been asked where Ukraine is located on her diplomatic trips. Instead of focusing on Ukraine, people are blaming Western nations for abandoning them in their own hours of need and accusing the West of caring little about the rest of the world, she said. “I have heard [this] all over the world: Firstly, ‘Where were you when we needed you?’ And also, ‘Where is the Ukraine actually?’” the minister told an event hosted by the private Brazilian university Fundacao Getulio Vargas (FGV) in Sao Paulo.
- South Korea’s LG Electronics has begun installing software for Smart TV adapted for the Russian market on television sets manufactured at its plant in Poland, Kommersant business daily reported on Monday citing market sources. The devices supplied through a parallel imports scheme are pre-installed with Russian online cinemas and support the Alisa virtual assistant, the outlet said. TVs that are not adjusted for the Russian market do not support Smart TV functions, it added.
- Russian retailers procure devices from other countries via parallel imports, a practice by which a non-counterfeit product is imported without the permission of the intellectual property owner via alternative supply channels. Russia legalized the mechanism to provide the market with goods that Western companies stopped delivering or producing in Russia because of sanctions.
- The BRICS bloc’s push to create a new trade and reserve currency that can serve as an alternative to the dollar could start chipping away at the greenback’s hegemony in less than three months’ time, former CIA and Department of Defense advisor and investment banker James Rickards has predicted. “On August 22, about two-and-a-half months from today, the most significant development in international finance since 1971 will be unveiled,” Rickards wrote in a major independent US business news outlet, referring to the start date of the upcoming BRICS Leaders’ Summit Conference in South Africa, and the day in 1971 when the US went off the gold standard.
- Romania will host a NATO battlegroup-supported multinational exercise on protection against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats dubbed Resolute Eagle on June 8, the Romanian National Defense ministry said on Tuesday. “The Resolute Eagle multinational chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defense exercise will be held on Thursday, June 8, at the Joint National Training Center in [the commune of] Cincu, Brasov County,” the ministry said on the website. The exercise focuses on improving interoperability among NATO forces and building defense expertise. About 70 Romanian, French and Polish soldiers with 14 tactical vehicles will participate in the drills.
- Traditional plastics based on fossil fuel and oil products have flooded the earth to the point that microplastics are found in all living things, sparking intensive research to find alternatives that decompose faster in nature. One such option, touted as “climate-friendly”, are biopolymers based on cane sugar. The most common bioplastic is polylactide (PLA) used in, for example, 3D-printers, textiles, food packaging and disposable cutlery. But, according to a recent study, even bioplastics have a negative effect on wildlife. A team led by Azora Konig Kardgar of the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, has found that exposure to bioplastics in fish food for six months changed the behavior of perch. Among other things, the fish showed signs of reduced movement, an altered ability to form shoals, and a changed response to approaching danger.
- In a galaxy very far, well located 12 billion light years from the Earththe scientists found complex organic molecules. It is the first time that similar compounds have been detected in such a distant galaxy, belonging to the so-called “child” universewhen he was about 10 percent of his current age. The most interesting aspect of the discovery lies in the fact that these compounds, characterized by carbon atomsare related to bricks of life. Their presence in the early Universe suggests that these elements may have spread everywhere and triggered life on a multitude of celestial bodies. Suffice it to say that according to a recent study there are hundreds of millions of habitable planets in our galaxy alone, the Milky Way.
- Astrophysicists have primarily detected gravitational waves from binary systems involving the merger of black holes or neutron stars. Northwestern University researchers now propose analyzing a previously unexplored avenue—the turbulent debris fields that surround dying massive stars. Using state-of-the-art simulations, researchers have demonstrated for the first time that these so-called debris “cocoons” can emit detectable gravitational waves. Unlike gamma-ray burst jets, the gravitational waves emitted by a debris field are expected to fall within the frequency band detectable by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO). Ore Gottlieb, CIERA fellow at Northwestern’s Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics, who led the study at Northwestern, stated: “Cocoons are one of the first places we should look to for this type of source.”
- A group of scientists working from a drilling ship off the coast of the Azores have collected the first-ever core samples taken from Earth’s mantle, the molten area that surrounds the planet’s core. They hope it will shed light on the chemical reactions that gave birth to life on Earth. The scientific triumph was made thanks to a rare spot on the Atlantic seafloor where the mantle, which is normally buried beneath miles of the crust, pokes through and can be sampled. Past efforts have focused on drilling down through the crust, which can be 20 or more miles thick. However, at Atlantis Massif, an underwater mountain the size of Mount Rainier, the scientists only had to drill through about 4,100 feet of seafloor – less than a mile. They used a drilling ship called the JOIDES [Joint Oceanographic Institutions for Deep Earth Sampling] Resolution. [Schumann Resonance Power 120]
- The newest installment of the ‘Twitter Files’ – disclosures of internal documents showing Censorship efforts on the platform – reveals a disturbing, if unsurprising, development showing how the FBI can be weaponized by foreign power. This latest scandal shows that, in early 2022, the FBI aided ‘misinformation’ (censorship) efforts against Twitter users, including American and Canadian journalists. The email, from FBI Special Agent Aleksandr Kobzanets, the Assistant Legal Attaché at the US Embassy in Kyiv, to two Twitter executives, had an attached document, that was drafted by Ukraine’s SBU, and contained 163 accounts. “To stop Russian aggression on the information front, we kindly ask you to take urgent measures to block these Twitter accounts and provide us with user data specified during registration.” Not only did the FBI ask for the accounts to be banned from Twitter, but also that their phone number, date of birth, and email address disclosed to both the FBI and SBU.

Tucker Carlson Ep. 1
Former Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson premiered the first episode of his new show on Twitter on Tuesday. In it, he talked about Ukraine, the current state of the media and UFOs. Carlson opened the 10-minute episode by talking about a recent dam explosion in Ukraine on Tuesday morning, arguing that if the explosion was intentional, it was an act of “terrorism.” “This morning, it appears that someone blew up the Kakhovka dam in southern Ukraine. The surging wall of water has wiped out entire villages, destroyed a critical hydroelectric plant and, as of tonight, Europe’s largest nuclear reactor is in danger of melting down,” Carlson said. , it wasn’t a military tactic: it was an act of terrorism. Blowing up the dam may be bad for Ukraine, but it hurts Russia more. And for this very reason, the Ukrainian government thought about destroying it.

Scientists are familiar with some variations in the light emissions of stars, but these are usually periodic or explainable in the context of longer observations. But during the last decade, researchers have found two stars where a peculiar anomaly occurs. The latest discovery is the star HD 139139, whose intermittent dimming is a mystery to scientists. At the moment, there can be only two explanations for this phenomenon – and one of them would mean that we are not alone in space.
