  1. Nuclear Fission Reactions Are Happening at Chernobyl Again On April 26, 1986, Reactor No. 4 exploded at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine, causing the worst nuclear accident in history. Now, thirty-five years later, smoldering nuclear “embers” are still buried within Chernobyl site, raising questions about just what might happen there—and what’s at stake. Ukrainian scientists recently realized that leftover nuclear fission fuel made of uranium has begun reacting again in an “inaccessible room” deep within a damaged area of the shuttered plant. The telltale sign is increase
  2. Belgian farmer made France smaller by accident It wasn’t an ordinary rock. That’s what a Belgian farmer learned after he moved a sizable stone that constantly disrupted his tractor’s path. But, it turned out the rock was actually a marker that served as a divider for France and Belgium, according to the BBC. Moving the stone marker 7.5 feet reportedly made France smaller and Belgium larger. The shifted border was first noticed by a local who explored the boundary earlier this year. The two areas that are directly affected by the moved stone are the French commune Bousignies-
  3. Climate change summit glitch cuts off Macron, puzzles Putin A technical glitch at a U.S. climate summit cut off French President Emmanuel Macron mid-speech and left Russian President Vladimir Putin puzzled, demonstrating that virtual meetings can be as awkward for world leaders as they are for the rest of us. Macron was just minutes into a speech about the urgency of climate action when U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken cut in, saying, "Thank you very much Mr president, I now turn the floor to the president of the Russian Federation, his Excellency Vladimir Putin". Macron's
  4. April jobs report: Payrolls rose by 266,000, sharply missing estimates, as unemployment rate increased The U.S. economy brought back far fewer jobs than estimated in April and the unemployment rate unexpectedly increased, underscoring the choppiness in the labor market's recovery even as social distancing requirements were eased further in the spring. The Labor Department released the April jobs report Friday morning at 8:30 a.m. ET. Here were the main results from the report, compared to consensus data compiled by Bloomberg: Non-farm payrolls, April: +266,000 vs. +1.000 mil
  5. New jobless claims fell to a fresh pandemic-era low of 498,000 last week New weekly jobless claims set a new pandemic-era low last week, falling below 500,000 for the first time since March 2020, with initial filings trending decidedly lower in recent weeks amid the pick-up in economic activity. The Department of Labor released its weekly report on new jobless claims Thursday at 8:30 a.m. ET. Here were the main metrics from the report, compared to consensus data compiled by Bloomberg: Initial jobless claims, week ended May 1: 498,000 vs. 538,000 expected and a revised 590,000
  6. Woman missing for months found alive; Camping A "resourceful" 47-year-old woman missing for months has been found alive in a tent in Utah County, Utah, telling officials she foraged for grass and moss to survive. Officials believe the woman — who was weak and had lost weight when found Monday — chose to stay in the Diamond Fork area over the last few months, the Utah County Sheriff's Office said. Search and rescue crews first looked for her in December after finding an abandoned car and camping equipment. "Over the next several months efforts were made to identify and conta
  7. Randy Quaid 'seriously considering' run for California governor Actor Randy Quaid said he is “seriously considering” running for California governor the day after the state announced that the recall effort aimed at ousting Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has enough signatures to qualify for the ballot. In a tweet posted on Tuesday, Quaid wrote, "The prosecutorial corruption in California (esp Santa Barbara & the Bell scandal) is rampant; and I promise that if elected I will clean up the District Attorney Offices throughout the state.” On Monday, the California secretary of state’s offi
  8. We? You only live here inside your mind, maybe you can sneak in like the rest though thanks to Biden.
  9. TV news ratings, online readership plunge during Biden's first 100 days Broadcast and cable news ratings, along with website traffic, are all taking a hit in the post-Trump era. During President Biden’s first 100 days in office, weekly full-day cable ratings for CNN and MSNBC have been trending down, according to statistics from ratings company Nielsen. On average, 1.3 million household viewers were watching MSNBC in the last week of January, shortly after Biden took office. For the week ending April 25, that number was 868,000. At CNN, those figures went from 1.2 million to 749,
  10. Manchin opposes D.C. statehood bill Democratic Senator Joe Manchin said Friday he does not support a bill to make Washington, D.C. the 51st state, likely dooming the measure's chances in the Senate. Manchin argued that D.C. statehood should be addressed with a constitutional amendment. "If Congress wants to make D.C. a state, it should propose a constitutional amendment," Manchin said in an interview with the West Virginia MetroNews radio network. "It should propose a constitutional amendment and let the people of America vote." The House approved the bill, H.R. 51, along party l
  11. Biden Bans Travel From India as Coronavirus Cases Surge The number of daily coronavirus cases in India crossed the 400,000 mark for the first time, the highest for any nation, as countries rush supplies of oxygen and medical goods to the world’s second-most populous nation. New Delhi extended its lockdown by a week, and a fire killed 18 patients in a Covid-19 ward in western India. President Joe Biden banned most travel from India to the U.S., while offering more medical supplies. Australia announced that its nationals in India will face a fine of up to $51,000 and five years in jail
  12. The global chip shortage is going from bad to worse. In the market for a new car, smartphone or washing machine this year? A global shortage of computer chips could mean you have to wait a while and pay more. A growing number of manufacturers around the world are having trouble securing supplies of semiconductors, delaying the production and delivery of goods and threatening to push up the prices paid by consumers. Several factors are driving the crunch, which was initially concentrated in the auto industry. The first is the coronavirus pandemic, which plunged the global economy
  13. First pregnant Egyptian mummy surprises researchers An Egyptian mummy previously believed to be a priest has turned out to be a pregnant woman. The surprise discovery, the first of its kind anywhere in the world, was made by Polish scientists at the Warsaw Mummy Project. The team, who since 2015 have been working to thoroughly examine human and animal mummies from Ancient Egypt at the National Museum in Warsaw, uncovered the body's true identity after spotting a tiny foot in the abdomen on a scan. According to Marzena Ożarek-Szilke, anthropologist and archaeologist from the
  14. Biden’s first big speech to Congress bombs on all counts President Biden’s speech Wednesday night failed on all counts: It didn’t sell his latest spending plan, it didn’t sell his larger agenda — and, worst of all, it didn’t sell him. Start with the utterly bizarre “mask theater.” All the politicians in the room have been fully vaccinated, and Biden’s own CDC says that’s enough. So why the universal masking, and the social distancing? The message, cutting across the president’s occasional optimism, was that this nightmare will never end — which simply isn’t true. Equally, obvious
