  • The 55-millimeter crab was discovered in Southeast Asia’s rainforests and is the first dinosaur-era creature of this species yet unearthed. The first-ever remains of an ancient tiny crab have been unearthed, encased in amber for 100 million years, making it the oldest modern-looking crab ever discovered, an international team of researchers revealed on Wednesday in Science Advances magazine.
  • The French Foreign Ministry did not comment on media reports that Belarusian national Sergei Savelyev, who allegedly leaked footage of torture in Russian prisons, has requested political asylum in France. Agence France-Presse failed to provide tangible evidence that Savelyev was indeed the one responsible for gathering the video evidence and handing it over for publication. The 31 year old was simply referred to as a man “behind a video leak.” Savelyev, a former inmate at a Russian prison serving a sentence for drug trafficking, arrived in France via Turkey and Tunisia, and has been waiting in the area for asylum seekers at the Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris since Friday, AFP said.
  • A Telegram account impersonating American whistleblower Edward Snowden has been purged from the app, CEO Pavel Durov said. Snowden posted his complaints on Twitter, criticising Telegram for not taking down the fake account, saying that the company refused to even respond. However, the Telegram founder himself answered him, saying that all he had to do was to let the messenger app know.
  • A gang that kidnapped 17 foreign missionaries in Haiti demand $1 million for the release of each abductee, thus $17 million in total, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday, citing a Haitian official. Earlier this week, the Christian Aid Ministries organisation confirmed 17 of its employees, namely 16 US nationals and one Canadian, have been abducted in Haiti. According to reports, citing Haitian security officials, the missionaries were abducted from a bus that was taking them to the Port-au-Prince airport.
  • A private school teacher was arrested for allegedly beating a 13-year-old pupil to death for not completing his homework. The incident took place on Wednesday in Salasar Village, in the Churu region of India’s Rajasthan state. The boy, Ganesh, was a pupil in Class 7 at a private school. According to media reports, the teacher, Manoj, called the student’s father Omprakash and informed him that his son had become unconscious. The teacher also told Omprakash that his son was beaten because he hadn’t done his homework.
  • In early October, Chinese Vice Premier Liu He and US Trade Representative Katherine Tai discussed the possible lifting of sanctions and tariffs during an online conversation. The trade agreement between China and the United States is beneficial for both sides, so Beijing and Washington should pave the way for its implementation, the spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Commerce said on Thursday.
  • The Pakistan government banned Tehreek-i-Labbaik under anti-terrorism laws in April after the group clashed with police across the country, demanding the French ambassador be expelled because President Emmanuel Macron refused to outlaw caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad last year. The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to suspend internet services in several parts of Lahore on Thursday. The directive was issued in response to a protest organised by a banned outfit Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan in Lahore. Police reported that internet services are not available in Samanabad, Sheer Akot, Nawankot, Gulshan-e-Ravi, Sabzazar, and Iqbal Town of Lahore.
  • The tea producers in India’s Darjeeling municipality would love Russia to become their key importing customer again, Darjeeling Tea Association Principal Advisor Sandeep Mukherjee told TASS. Nearly 75-80% of Darjeeling tea was exported to the USSR before its collapse in 1991, the official said, adding “At that point of time Darjeeling used to produce around 14 million kg of tea per year.” He explained that “After the USSR broke up the export of tea nearly stopped and the next three-four years the Darjeeling tea industry went through difficult times. During that period between 1991 and 1995 a lot of tea gardens closed, many people became unemployed and the production of tea dropped to 11 million kg.”
  • Beijing has announced its intention to construct a “Polar Silk Road” and actively participate in the development of Arctic and Antarctic regions as part of its new 2021-2025 “five-year plan.” According to the plan, China would “participate in pragmatic cooperation in the North Pole” and “raise its ability to participate in the protection and utilization of the South Pole.” China said that it wanted to create new freight routes linking Asia and Europe via the Northeast, Northwest and Central Passages of the Arctic, which raised concerns about the fragile environment of the region. It also said it would encourage enterprises to build infrastructure and conduct commercial trial voyages, paving the way for Arctic shipping routes that would form a “Polar Silk Road.”
  • Once a “conspiracy theory” denigrated by the mainstream media, vaccine passports are becoming increasingly common in so-called liberal democracies. Canada, France, Italy, New York and San Francisco now require proof of vaccination for entry into restaurants, gyms and other public venues. Similarly, the Biden administration has made increasing vaccination rates a priority, and wants to mandate that all employers operating in the country with more than 100 employees require vaccination as a condition of employment, though no specific executive order has yet followed.
  • The parent company of Facebook, which owns the social media network and other services, such as WhatsApp and Instagram, may soon have a new name. The looming rebranding was reported by The Verge this week. The outlet speculates that the corporation wants to have a name that includes the word ‘Horizon,’ since this is how Facebook’s under-development virtual reality (VR) platform is branded. There has been no shortage of suggestions hurled their way – including one from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. He responded to a tweet explaining the origin of the word ‘metaverse’ in a science fiction book, saying author Neal Stephenson was right in his prediction that a virtual world owned by private companies would be “a dystopian corporate dictatorship.” He then tweeted: “Central Intelligence Corporation,” apparently suggesting it would be a good name for Zuckerberg’s brainchild.
  • More than 1.7 million people who crossed the US-Mexico border illegally were detained over the previous 12-month period, the highest number ever recorded, according to Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) documents leaked to the media. The revelation is based on a CBP report obtained by the Washington Post on Wednesday, covering the 2021 fiscal year, which started in October 2020 and ended three weeks ago. While no monthly breakdown of the figures was provided, the rise in illegal crossings coincided with the declaration that Democrat Joe Biden won the November 3 presidential election. Even the Post describes arrests as having “skyrocketed” after Biden was sworn in – with 1.3 million over the past nine months.
  • A cruel act of Taliban has come to the fore. Talibani fighters have beheaded Afghanistan’s junior national volleyball female player. In an interview, the coach of the Afghan women’s volleyball national team confirmed the beheading of Mahjabeen, but no one came to know about the brutal murder as Taliban fighters threatened the player’s family not to tell anyone about it. Mehjabeen Hakimi belonged to the Hazara ethnic group. The Hazaras are a minority in Afghanistan, hated and persecuted by the Taliban. The Hazaras are the third largest ethnic group in Afghanistan and a religious minority. About 10 per cent of Muslims in Sunni-majority Afghanistan are Shia and almost all of them are Hazaras. The Taliban and Islamic State are Sunni. The Hazaras are said to be of Mongolian and Central Asian descent and descended from Mongolian leader Genghis Khan. He invaded Afghanistan in the 13th century. They mostly live in the mountainous region of central Afghanistan, which is known as ‘Hazaristan’ or the land of the Hazaras.
